Sullivan leading in Senate race By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

Ballot measures pass; Young holds off challenge from Dunbar

ANCHORAGE — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan held an early lead over Democratic Sen. Mark Begich Tuesday night in Alaska’s hotly contested race. Tens of millions of dollars were pumped into the high-stakes race, with Republicans seeing Begich as vulnerable. The number of early votes cast in the election, which included the governor’s race and a ballot measure to legalize marijuana, surpassed 2010, when

— See Page A-5

there was another high-profile Senate race in Alaska, and the 2012 presidential race. The GOP needed to pick up six seats nationally to regain control of the chamber and did so Tuesday, as polls were about to close in Alaska. Begich, who was behind in results on election night in 2008, told supporters packed into an Anchorage restaurant

that it would be a long night. “It might be a long week,” he said. It was possible the outcome of the race may not be known until absentee ballots are counted next week. Both Begich and Sullivan were out and about in Anchorage, waving signs and greeting supporters. Sullivan also got an unexpected call from his old boss, former President George W. Bush. Sullivan was an assistant secretary of state in the Bush administration. In recent days, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former presidential candidate Mitt Romney were in Alaska to rally sup-

port for Sullivan. Begich shook hands with as many people as possible and deployed his wife and mother to outlying communities as part of his get-out-thevote effort. “How can you not feel good after something like that?” Sullivan said of the rally with Romney Monday that attracted a large crowd. “That’s energy. That’s Alaskans who are energized. You know, the Dems talk about ground game. We’ll see. That looked like a pretty powerful ground game to me yesterday. Both sides felt good about their

Ben Heaverley, of Soldotna, votes for the first time Tuesday at the Kenai Peninsula Borough Administration Building in Soldotna. His father, George Heaverley accompanied him into the booth.

Races drive peninsula voters By RASHAH McCHESNEY, DAN BALMER, KELLY SULLIVAN and BEN BOETTGER Peninsula Clarion

For the first time in his life, Ben Heaverley voted in Soldotna on Tuesday evening. The 24-year-old Soldotna man’s father, George Heaverley, accompanied him into the booth and the two spoke quietly about the candidates, the issues and,

ultimately, how Ben Heaverley decided to cast his vote. A steady stream of people filled the booths around him and several polling locations reported higher-than-normal voter turnouts on election day. At the Challenger Learning Center, in Kenai, more than 500 voters cast their ballots, said volunteer Carl Glick. “Normally, we are in the 300s here,” he said. “At least 150 more people came

out than is normal.” Also in Kenai, Carol Freas at the Old Kenai Mall, said more than 950 people had turned up to vote. While the number is significantly more than the average for local elections, it is not unusual for gubernatorial and state races to raise awareness and voter interest, Freas said. Several smaller communities saw See VOTERS, page A-5

ANCHORAGE (AP) — Independent candidate Bill Walker held a razor thin lead over Republican incumbent Sean Parnell, but the Alaska governor’s race remained too close to call late Tuesday. Walker maintained a lead most of the evening, but the advantage waned as the night progressed. Both candidates have steered clear of interpreting the counts, although Walker said the returns were exciting. “We’re pleased to be in the lead, but we recognize that it’s early, so we’ll see as the night progresses how that maintains,” he said early in the evening. “But if someone has to be in the lead, we’d rather it’d be us, obviously.” Parnell also noted it was too early to say where the vote was going. “I’m in a place where we’re going to wait and see what more votes look like,” he said, adding he was feeling good. “We’ve See CLOSE, page A-12

Sen. Peter Micciche received his ticket back to Juneau Tuesday. Three out of every four voters in Senate District O favored Micciche, R-Soldotna, over his non-affiliated challenger Eric Treider. With all precincts reporting, Micciche received 77 percent of the votes with 8,134 total. Treider, a Soldotna resident, garnished a total of 2313 votes for 22 percent. Also Tuesday Gary Stevens, R-Kodiak, was elected to Senate District P with 71 percent of the vote over Robert “Moose” Henrichs from Cordova. Micciche, 52, said he is “pleased and humbled” to receive the support from the district and looks forward to spending more time with people to understand their priorities before he returns for the 29th Legislative session. “I’ve certainly spent a lot of time and energy reaching out to folks and asking for feedback,” he said. “I’m committed to serving people the way they expect to be served.” He said his focus in the next legislative session is to tighten the state operating and capital budget. “We will essentially need to dissect the budget and

Mike Chenault has been a state representative in Alaska for 14 years and, for the third time since 2010, he successfully defended his seat against a challenger. With nearly 77 percent of the vote in 11 precincts on Tuesday, Chenault, a Republican, carried House District 29. Democratic challenger Rocky Knudsen garnered just over 22 percent of the more than 5,500 votes cast. “It’s good to know that the folks in my district, I guess, still believe that I’m doing the things that they want me to do,” Chenault said from an election-night party at the Egan Center in Anchorage. The now 8-term representative said he also plans to run for Speaker of the House again. Chenault was first elected as Speaker in 2009 and is the longest running Speaker in the state’s history. That decision will likely happen later in the week, Chenault said. “We’ll get organized here in the next few days and see if I’ve got enough votes,” he said. For some who support Chenault, they’d like to see him go further than the state house.

Rep. Kurt Olson, R-Soldotna has been re-elected for a sixth term in the Alaska State House. Representing District 30, Olson received 3,869 votes, winning 74 percent in six out of six reporting precincts on Tuesday’s general election. Olson’s opponent, Democratic candidate Shauna Thornton, received 1,352 votes, winning 25 percent. Olson said he commended Thornton for her positive, first-time campaigning. “We ran one of the cleanest races in the state,” Olson said. “We both ran on the issues and there was little negative advertising.” Olson considers his progressive advocacy for workers compensation to be his biggest achievement from his years in Juneau, he said in a previous Clarion interview. He said he wanted to return and tie up some loose ends left over from the last session. During his next term Olson said he predicts local developments in the oil and gas industry with the pending Alaska LNG project, and the pressure of revenue cuts will be two of the biggest issues the house will be faced with. Olson and Thornton both went on foot during their campaigns, knocking on doors and talking to central

Buccaneer sells assets; wants $20M from state By ELWOOD BREHMER Morris News Service-Alaska/ Alaska Journal of Commerce

Bankrupt Buccaneer Energy Ltd. is demanding more than $20 million from the State of Alaska, days after appearing to sell its remaining assets. The Australia-based independent filed a motion to compel the state to pay tax credits it claims it is owed under the Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share (ACES) oil and gas tax system Oct. 30 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas. Buccaneer’s domestic subsidiary, Buccaneer Resources LLC is based in Houston. On Oct. 27 AIX Energy LLC, an energy-finance company that in April purchased much of Buccaneer’s debt, won an auction for Buccaneer’s assets with a $44 million bid. Miller Energy Resources Inc., which owns Cook Inlet Energy, was the only other participant with a $35 million bid. The sale agreement is tentative pending final approval. Buccaneer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May after Cook Inlet gas exploration came up empty and financing deals fell through. Its claim that it is owed more than $20 million in ACES tax credits came about 40 days after the company paid $380,000 in property taxes and associated fees related to the small Kenai Loop gas field to the state and the Kenai Peninsula Borough, according to the filing. The gas field in the city of Kenai is Buccaneer’s only producing asset. The state has paid $37.9 million in ACES credits to Buc-

caneer to date, the company states. Prior tax credit payments were made between two and six days after approval notifications were received from the state, Buccaneer claims, and the notifications for the three applications in question were dated Oct. 8, more than three weeks before the motion requesting the court order the state to pay was filed. “The state’s current treatment deviates significantly from historical practice,” Buccaneer’s attorneys wrote. Department of Revenue spokeswoman Lacy Wilcox said agency officials could not comment on the issue because it is pending litigation. A hearing on the outstanding tax credits is scheduled for Nov. 12 in the Houston court. Cook Inlet Region Inc. has objected to the auction and sale proceedings multiple times, claiming the expedited timing has not given affected parties enough time to review critical documents. The latest such objection was filed Nov. 4 regard-

ing a proposed hearing about Buccaneer’s bankruptcy plan. CIRI owns land adjacent to the Kenai Loop pad and is involved with Buccaneer and the State of Alaska in an ongoing Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission hearing over how much it is owed for gas Buccaneer produced from the Kenai Loop field. Buccaneer has acknowledged in the hearing that it produced gas attributable to the Southcentral Native regional corporation. “It’s a question of how much. There’s no question that we’re due production from that field. I don’t want to beat around the bush on that,” CIRI Vice President Ethan Schutt said. The funds in an escrow account that Buccaneer has been feeding with its production revenue should be enough to cover royalty payments to both the state and CIRI, according to Schutt. Buccaneer was ordered to set up the account by the AOGCC as a way to segregate funds it may need to disburse later. Ac-

cording to a Nov. 3 court filing, about $8 million had been transferred to the account as of Oct. 31, and Buccaneer had $10.9 million in unrestricted cash, nearly all of which came from an ACES credit payment. When the company filed for bankruptcy it claimed to have assets of less than $500,000 and liabilities between $50 million and $100 million. To the degree that CIRI is asking for more than royalty payments “it gets a little dicier” as to where that money would come from, Schutt said. Buccaneer also owes the Alaska Department of Natural Resources more than $605,000 for lease and royalty payments. The state was listed as the company’s ninth largest unsecured creditor for the amount in a June court filing. Schutt said that CIRI has had several conversations with AIX representatives presuming it takes over Buccaneer’s assets, which also includes standing in a state Superior Court case that largely parallel’s the AOGCC docket.

Obituary Joseph Mathew Perletti

Free Thinker group meets

Joseph Mathew Perletti passed away peacefully into eternal rest, surrounded by friends and family, in Soldotna on Saturdday, Nov. 1, 2014, at age 57. Joe was born in Portland, Oregon on August 31, 1957. Joe embraced his natural entrepreneur skills at a very early age by buying and selling rare coins at a neighborhood Flea Market. At age 15, he purchased his first vehicle to repair and resell and continued this passion throughout his life. He took great joy in owning a multitude of “muscle cars” and participating in street races with his friends. At age 18, he earned his real estate license and purchased his first home and continued buying and selling real estate. He opened All Z-East, a successful wrecking yard, specializing in Datsun Z parts, in Gresham, Oregon. Joe was very thankful to have met and married the love of his life, Susan Monish, on March 9, 1985. Together they have three beloved children, Micah, Kadie, and Jonas. In 2001, Joe realized his dream by moving his family to the great state of Alaska. He enjoyed living on the Kasilof River and the thrill of catching silver salmon there with his family and friends. Joe was an insurance agent for Country Insurance, earning many awards as a top producer. He opened and later sold Soldotna Auto Salvage. Joe most of all loved spending time with his family and friends. He relished coaching both his sons’ hockey teams in Oregon and Alaska, and also fishing and clam digging with his daughter. He took delight in entertaining family and friends with his many stories and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. His kind and generous spirit will remain forever in the hearts and memories of his family and friends. Joe was preceded in death by his father, Paul, and sister Karen. He is survived by his wife Susan, sons Micah and Jonas, daughter Kadie, mother Susanna, brothers Bill and Kevin, sisters Paula and Marcy. The Perletti family held a mass to honor Joe’s life on Tuesday at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church and will hold a special celebration Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. at College Heights Baptist Church.

What Others Say

U.S. benefits for Nazis an outrage Those who have committed war crimes

or who are suspected of committing them must answer for them. War criminals kill innocent people for various reasons, whether it’s over religion, ethnicity or ideology. Whatever their reasons, there can be no justification for their actions. One of the most well-documented and horrendous cases of war crimes occurred during World War II when former German dictator Adolf Hitler and his henchmen tried to exterminate the entire Jewish race along with others they considered inferior or undesirable. Because of their orders and orders being acted upon by leaders and soldiers in the concentration camps, nearly 6 million innocent Jewish people were murdered. There are a few officers and guards from those concentration camps who are still alive and have evaded capture or trial for their despicable acts. To add insult to injury to the families of victims massacred in the camps, it has been disclosed that dozens of suspected Nazi war criminals and SS guards received millions of dollars in U.S. Social Security benefits after being forced out of the United States. The payments, underwritten by U.S. taxpayers, flowed through a legal loophole that gave the U.S. Justice Department leverage to persuade Nazi suspects to leave the U.S. If they agreed to go or simply flee before deportation, they could keep their Social Security benefits. There is a lot of blame to go around here, but the bottom line is these men are suspected war criminals who need to be tried for their alleged crimes in a court of law, rather than receiving money from U.S. taxpayers. Shame on those who were responsible for letting this happen. Perhaps this injustice can still be corrected. — The Daily News, Bowling Green, Kentucky Oct. 24

Quotable

Another word about Ben Bradlee

I’m about to be perhaps the one millionth news type to comment on the passing of Washington Post legend Ben Bradlee. I’ll be one of the few who acknowledges that I didn’t know him very well, our conversations limited to a few encounters in the same green room, where we never got much past platitudes. I am, however, in full agreement with those who lionize him in death as the personification of the highest ideals in journalism. He was fanatical about building air-tight stories — nothing less, based on facts, tediously accumulated by hard work with no shortcuts. We saw that in his most celebrated management of the Watergate scandal, but his high standards were largely responsible for the Post becoming one of the most shining examples of what the Founding Fathers envisioned in a free press. I happened to work for another giant early in my career, another tough-guy manager from the Watergate era, Bill Small, first of CBS and then NBC, who epitomized and demanded strict adherence to making public the information needed so Americans could be well-informed. Each of them, and others, were willing to take on a Nixon administration that threatened serious economic consequences against their companies. Each had courageous corporate bosses who backed them, as long as the stories were impeccably fair and accurate ... playing no favorites.

There are a number of heavyweights still left, and the Post is still an awesome newspaper, one of many scattered across the country where aggressive reporters are inspired by today’s superiors to pursue Bob Franken the truth. However, let’s be honest, it was not only Ben Bradlee who passed on. All that he represents is a dying breed. The media field today is covered with what we can politely call “fertilizer.” At about the same time Watergate was unfolding, news consultants started flourishing. Actually, they are marketing consultants, who sell the idea to profit-hungry owners that viewers and readers can be seduced by glitz and graphics, by sensationalism and mayhem that always will trump substantive reporting — which, by the way, costs more to gather. We’ve seen it in the “if it bleeds, it leads” TV coverage, as well as the inordinate emphasis on celebrity as opposed to digging for the stuff that really matters, where the viewer or reader would have to pay attention. Add to that the shortage of coverage that is scrupulously fair and put into context. The most successful news networks these

days merely sing to the choirs of those on the left or right, instead of trying to expand their knowledge. Worse, the agenda is now set by the Internet, where facts are constantly shoved aside and where ignorance has no bounds. For example, when Ebola came to these shores, the threat was hyped to hysterical proportions, and any sense of perspective disappeared in the clamor of media whose operators these days are, uh, operators. They care almost exclusively about ratings or reader gains. They enable politicians who see, as a result, a chance to demagogue the issue for electoral gain. The polls show that our business gets get very low approval ratings. In Ben Bradlee’s heyday, that was also the case, but it was because his paper and the others were making everyone uncomfortable by uncovering real sleaze. People didn’t want to believe that the leaders of their government, the ones they put into office, could be such lowlifes. I, too, cite a much-quoted utterance from Ben Bradlee: “You never monkey with the truth.” The problem today is that truth is often replaced by titillation, and those who abuse our system are permitted to do so unencumbered. Bob Franken is a longtime broadcast journalist, including 20 years at CNN.

Syria’s four-year civil war has killed hundreds of thousands and displaced millions in what began as a movement to replace Assad with a more democratic state.  By GARRY TRUDEAU As the government’s control weakened, militants rallying around Islamic slogans carved out a vast safe haven for themselves - recruiting, training and building fighting capacity. From Syria this year, they then struck deep into Iraq, with devastating effect, and now also threaten Lebanon. Yet any concerted effort to oust Assad and restore stability to Syria does not appear to be on the horizon. What emerges instead from the actions and words of Western policymakers is a glum resignation that there is nothing that can be done about Assad for now, and the fight is only with the Islamic State. For many world leaders, allowing Assad to remain in control in Damascus appears to be the least-bad option. That’s striking, given the disaster he has overseen. In an ideal world from a Western perspective, an army of “moderate” rebels headquartered in Istanbul would be an attractive choice to march into Syria and defeat both the Islamic State and the Syrian government. There are some rebels who are pro-Western and largely secular. Some even can be heard on Israeli radio stations promising a future of regional peace. But upon inspection, these rebels are few, badly divided, and barely control the Free Syria Army, which purports to be their force on the ground and has little political support inside Syria.

Believe it or not, there is a peace process that could be revived. The so-called Geneva communique, a roadmap agreed on by major powers in June 2012, calls for the establishment of a transitional governing body for Syria. But the document is open for interpretation, and two rounds of peace talks between government and opposition representatives in Switzerland this year ended in failure.

Voters OK measures on marijuana, minimum wage, mining By DAN JOLING Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — A measure to legalize recreational use of marijuana in Alaska was maintaining a steady lead in early returns Tuesday night. With nearly two-thirds of the state’s precincts reporting, Alaskans were narrowly approving Ballot Measure 2, which would legalize recreational pot for Alaskans 21 and older. The language to create a system of taxation and regulation is similar to a measure approved in Colorado and comes a decade after Alaska voters rejected legalizing pot in 2004. Oregon voters also approved a recreational pot mea-

chances heading into Tuesday night. Democrats made an unprecedented investment in rural Alaska, while Republicans focused on shoring up support in the state’s most populous region.’ Sullivan, who stopped by Election Central in Anchorage as initial results began to come in, said it was far too early to speculate about a possible win by him. He said he wanted to thank Alaskans for their sup-

higher turnouts as well. At the Ninilchik Senior Center Will Bauman said 519 people had voted. “We had a fantastic turnout,” he said. “Just a continuous flow of people. Everybody says this is the most we’ve had for quite a number of years.” Jodie Titus, a volunteer at the Nikiski Fire Station No. 1, said the 996 voters officials saw were reminiscent of a presidential election. “This is the highest we’ve had this year,” she said. In Anchor Point, Bobby Ness said volunteers had seen 777 people cast ballots. “That’s a whole lot more than we normally see,” she said. “It has been really steady. At times we’ve had people backing up. It has been really good for us, we’re real excited.” For many of the Kenai Peninsula voters, the race for the U.S. Senate seemed to weigh heavily on their minds. The race shattered state re-

sure Tuesday. Washington state joined Colorado in legalizing recreational marijuana in 2012. The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, the group behind the Alaska initiative, said marijuana prohibition has been “as ineffective, wasteful, and problematic as alcohol prohibition.” Pro-pot forces outspent the opposition by a huge margin, funded largely by a national group that backs legalization, the Marijuana Policy Project. Supporters said legalization would free up law enforcement to focus on more serious drug crimes and bring in additional revenue for the state. Opponents included local governments, law enforcement agencies and Alaska Native and

health care groups. The Vote No on 2 group said approval of the measure would harm villages that have no authority over marijuana, hurt children susceptible to mass marketing and run up social costs for damage done to families. Alaska Native leaders, municipalities and law enforcement officials opposed the measure. Pot is already legal in small quantities in users’ homes under a 1975 Alaska Supreme Court ruling on privacy rights. An overriding theme among voters in midtown Anchorage was the amount of money spent to enforce marijuana laws on the books. “If there’s an opportunity for fewer people to end up in

jail, for marijuana, I see that as good,” said Ron Rozak after voting at Central Lutheran Church. He acknowledged that marijuana interferes with young people’s development and thinking but is not sure it’s a gateway to cocaine or other drugs. He would rather see enforcement money spent on preschools or job training. Willow Tebo and Scott Jenks voted yes. “There are too many people that take up law enforcement’s valuable time. I’d rather they be chasing after violent criminals than bustin’ a grown man who’s smoking a doobie,” Tebo said. “It’s pretty much legal here anyway,” Jenks said. “It’s just a waste of cop time and court

port. Begich said he was confident he would wake up “it might be a week from now, two weeks from now, but we will be victorious.” Begich played up his deep roots in Alaska — he was born and raised here, and his father was a congressman — while portraying Sullivan as an outsider prone to talking points. A leader in the Senate Democratic conference, Begich cast himself as an independent voice for Alaska, willing to work across party lines and unafraid to stand up to President Barack Obama. The tagline on his ads

was “True Alaska.” “I think people got fed up with the same old line from my opponent ... he continued to talk about Obama, Harry Reid, you know, blah blah blah,” Begich said. “And what they saw with us, we talked about the issues.” Republicans made the race a referendum on Obama and Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, often citing that Begich voted with Obama 97 percent of the time. The figure referred to votes, many of them confirmations, on which Obama made his preference known in 2013. Sullivan, whose roots in the state date to the 1990s, touted

his family’s ties to Alaska. His wife is from here and his mother-in-law has been an Alaska Native leader. He also noted his work on energy and national security issues and efforts to combat sexual assault and domestic violence. He said this race was not only about the future direction of Alaska but the country. Steady traffic was reported at a number of polling places in Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city. Several voters said they were glad the commercials and calls were coming to an end. Some also expressed disappointment with the tone of the race.

cords for spending, nearly $57 million was spent throughout the campaign, according to OpenSecrets.org. The vast majority of that money, more than $40 million of it, came from Outside organizations. That money went into a barrage of radio, television and print advertising and smear campaigns that have lasted for several weeks. For some, like Linda Faro of Sterling, the ads put her off from the campaigns. She said she didn’t like the badmouthing and voted for incumbent Mark Begich over Republican challenger Dan Sullivan. “I think Sullivan was questionable in my mind plus he has some philosophical beliefs that run opposite of mine as far as women’s rights and so forth,” Faro said. Gloria Ager, of Sterling, also voted for Begich because, she said, she did not want to see Sullivan resurrect discussion on the Pebble Mine. For some, the Senate vote had less to do with Alaska issues and more to do with politics nationwide. MaryLee Killinger, of Kenai, said the election was important

to her because the candidates would determine the future of the country. “I want to break up the gridlock (in the Senate),” she said. Bill Mabrey, of Soldotna, said he wanted to see Democrats keep control of the Senate. “Right now, I would like to see the Republicans out of power,” he said. “I don’t like the way they treat our country, I don’t like they way they treat people.” The Democrats did lose control of the Senate on Tuesday, losing seats in states like Colorado and Iowa. Republicans needed six seats to gain the majority; they also picked up seats in Montana, South Dakota, Arkansas, West Virginia and North Carolina. Other issues highlighted by Kenai Peninsula voters included the governor’s race which pitted incumbent Republican Sean Parnell against non-affiliated challenger Bill Walker. Walker’s campaign held an early, but narrow lead at press time. With 78 percent of Alas-

ka’s precincts reporting, Walker carried just 47 percent of the votes, while Parnell carried just over 46 percent. Roger and Gloria Ager, of Sterling, said they both voted for Walker. “Parnell is creepy, I don’t want him in there,” Gloria said. Janet Miller said she voted for Walker because of his unity ticket with Democrat Byron Mallot. “I just like the fact that one’s a Republican and one’s a Democrat. I think they need to start talking,” she said. Elsewhere on the Kenai Penisula, voters also weighed in on some of the ballot propositions. On Prop. 2, which would legalize and regulate marijuana in the state, Laura Faro, of Sterling voted “no.” She said she went “back and forth” on the issue, but ultimately considered the substance to be a “gateway drug.” Michael Bishop, of Kasilof, voted in favor of the proposition. “The time has come,” he said. “You can’t overdose on

Young defeated his upstart opponent, Forrest Dunbar, on Tuesday to win a 22nd term.

Takeover: Republicans surge to Senate control By DAVID ESPO Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Riding a powerful wave of voter discontent, resurgent Republicans captured control of the Senate and tightened their grip on the House Tuesday night in elections certain to complicate President Barack Obama’s final two years in office. Republican Mitch McConnell led the way to a new Senate majority, dispatching Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky after a $78 million campaign of unrelieved negativity. Voters are “hungry for new leadership. They want a reason to be hopeful,” said the man now in line to become majority leader and set the Senate agenda. Two-term incumbent Mark Pryor of Arkansas was the first Democrat to fall, defeated by freshman Rep. Tom Cotton. Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado was next, defeated by Rep. Cory Gardner. Sen. Kay Hagan also lost, in North Carolina, to Thom Tilllis, the speaker of the state House. Republicans also picked up seats in Iowa, West Virginia, South Dakota and Montana, all states where Democrats retired. They had needed a net gain of six seats to end a Democratic majority in place since 2006. In the House, with dozens of races uncalled, Republicans had picked up 11 seats that had been in Democratic hands, and given up only one. A net pickup of 13 would give them more seats in the House than at any time since 1946. Obama was at the White House as voters remade Congress for the final two years of his tenure — not to his liking. With lawmakers set to convene next week for a postelection session, he invited leaders to a meeting on Friday.

Congress would vote soon in the new year on the ‘many commonsense jobs and energy bills that passed the Republican-led House in recent years with bipartisan support but were never even brought to a vote by the outgoing Senate majority.’ — Speaker of the House John Boehner The shift in control of the Senate, coupled with a GOPled House, probably means a strong GOP assault on budget deficits, additional pressure on Democrats to accept sweeping changes to the health care law that stands as Obama’s signal domestic accomplishment and a bid to reduce federal regulations. Obama’s ability to win confirmation for lifetime judicial appointments could also suffer, including any Supreme Court vacancies. Speaker John Boehner, in line for a third term as head of the House, said the new Republican-controlled Congress would vote soon in the new year on the “many commonsense jobs and energy bills that passed the Republicanled House in recent years with bipartisan support but were never even brought to a vote by the outgoing Senate majority.” Said outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Demo-

crat, “ The message from voters is clear: They want us to work together.” Legislation to approve the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada is likely among the disputed issues to be debated. There were 36 gubernatorial elections on the ballot Tuesday, and several incumbents struggled against challengers. Tom Wolf captured the Pennsylvania statehouse for the Democrats, defeating Republican Gov. Tom Corbett. Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn lost in Illinois, Obama’s home state. Republican Larry Hogan scored one of the night’s biggest upsets, in Maryland. In a footnote to one of the year’s biggest political surprises, college professor Dave Brat was elected to the House from Virginia, several months after

he defeated Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a Republican primary. House Republicans defeated 19-term Democratic Rep. Nick Rahall in West Virginia, beat Rep. John Barrow in Georgia and picked up a seat vacated by a lawmaker in North Carolina. After years of a sluggish economic recovery and foreign crises aplenty, the voters’ mood was sour. Nearly two-thirds of voters interviewed after casting ballots said the country was seriously on the wrong track. Only about 30 percent said it was generally going in the right direction. More than four in ten voters disapproved of both Obama and Congress, according to the exit polls conducted for The Associated Press and the television

networks. Still, a majority of those polled supported several positions associated with Democrats or Obama rather than Republicans — saying immigrants in the country illegally should be able to work, backing U.S. military involvement against Islamic State fighters, and agreeing that climate change is a serious problem. No matter which party emerged with control of the Senate, a new chapter in divided government was inevitable in a nation marked by profound unease over the future and dissatisfaction with its political leaders. Several Senate races were close, a list that — surprisingly — included Virginia. There, Democratic Sen. Mark Warner held a narrow

lead over former Republican Party chairman and Bush administration official Ed Gillespie. There was a little good news for Democrats in New Hampshire, where Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was re-elected after a difficult race against former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown. But in Georgia, Michelle Nunn lost to businessman David Perdue, depriving the Democrats of their last chances to take away a Republican seat. In Kansas, 78-year-old Sen. Pat Roberts fended off a challenge from independent Greg Orman, shutting off another avenue for the Democrats. Among the newly elected Republican senators was Rep. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, the first member of her party to win a seat there in more than a half century. State Sen. Jodi Ernst of Iowa also won, after a campaign that took off when she aired an ad saying she had learned how to castrate hogs as a girl growing up on a ranch. In statehouse races, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York won a second term. Former Republican Rep. Asa Hutchinson was elected governor of Arkansas more than a decade after playing a prominent role in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment and trial, and Florida Gov. Rick Scott won a tough race for a new term. Also winning new terms were Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican and potential presidential candidates in 2016. Another possible White House hopeful, Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, also won. The elections’ $4 billion price tag spending was unprecedented for a non-presidential year

Around the World Ebola creates emergency by hindering access to health care for other diseases

By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer

MONROVIA, Liberia — The Ebola outbreak has spawned a “silent killer,” experts say: hidden cases of malaria, pneumonia, typhoid and the like that are going untreated because people in the countries hardest hit by the dreaded virus either cannot find an open clinic or are too afraid to go to one. Evidence of what the World Health Organization calls an “emergency within the emergency” is everywhere in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the West African countries worst hit by the Ebola epidemic. It can be seen in a decline in the number of kids being vaccinated for preventable diseases. It can be seen in the mother who crosses Monrovia, Liberia’s capital, searching for an open clinic that will treat her 3-year-old daughter who has a fever and is vomiting, both signs of Ebola but also of many other diseases. It can be seen at the hospital in Kissidougou, Guinea, which sees not even a tenth of the patients it used to. It can also be seen at the hospital outside Sierra Leone’s capital run by the medical charity Emergency. It is inundated with patients because nearby hospitals are closed or only partially operating. “There’s this incredible silent killer health crisis behind the Ebola crisis,” said Eric Talbert, the executive director of Emergency’s U.S. branch.

WASHINGTON — The Air Force has fired or disciplined at least 16 nuclear missile commanders or senior officers for misconduct and other failings over the past year and a half, reflecting turmoil in arguably the military’s most sensitive mission. Another who quit of his own accord lamented upon leaving, “We let the American people down on my watch.” The latest to be dismissed this week: a colonel accused of “cruelty and maltreatment” of a subordinate and a missile squadron commander found to have illegally discriminated against women under his command. In addition to those actions Monday, another senior officer was administratively disciplined but not removed from command. This string of leadership lapses has beset a force that remains central to American defense strategy but in some respects has been neglected. The force of 450 Minuteman 3 nuclear missiles is primed to unleash nuclear devastation on a moment’s notice. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is expected soon to announce the results of an independent review of problems in the nuclear force. In ordering the review last winter, Hagel said, “Personnel failures within this force threaten to jeopardize

Judge orders Kansas to let gay couples marry KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A federal judge has ordered Kansas to allow same-sex couples to marry, but he delayed enforcement of the order until next week to give the state time to appeal. U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday barring the state from enforcing its constitutional ban starting at 5 p.m. on Nov. 11, pending the outcome of a lawsuit challenging it. The American Civil Liberties Union sued to overturn Kansas’ ban after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear appeals from five states seeking to save their gay marriage bans. Among them were Oklahoma and Utah, which are in the same appeals court circuit as Kansas. The ACLU says denying the couples it is representing the right to marry, even for a short period, would do them irreparable harm.

SANTA ANA, Calif. — Prosecutors filed charges Tuesday against a driver accused of fleeing in his SUV after fatally striking three Southern California teenage girls as they were trick-or-treating on Halloween. Jaquinn Bell, 31, was charged with three felony counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence, one felony count of hit-and-run with permanent injury or death and one misdemeanor count of driving on a suspended license, the Orange County district attorney’s office said. Bell, who recently pleaded guilty to a separate hit-and-run, was scheduled for arraignment later in the day but it was postponed to Dec. 16 and he was ordered held on more than $1 million bail. If convicted, he faces up to 17 years in state prison. The complaint also included sentencing enhancement allegations of personally inflicting great bodily injury and fleeing the scene after committing a vehicular manslaughter. The victims of the Halloween night crash in the city of Santa Ana were twin sisters Lexi and Lexandra Perez and a friend, Andrea Gonzalez, all 13 years old.

Appeals court takes on NSA surveillance case WASHINGTON— Three federal appeals court judges struggled Tuesday over whether the National Security Agency’s phone data surveillance program is an intelligence-gathering tool that makes the nation safer or an intrusive threat that endangers privacy. The judges all appointed by Republican presidents expressed uncertainty about where to draw the line between legal surveillance and violations of constitutional rights in the age of terrorism. Since 2006, the FBI has obtained orders from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court directing phone companies to produce telephone “metadata” outgoing phone numbers dialed and numbers from incoming calls to the government. The NSA consolidates the records into a searchable database in the hunt for terror suspects. During the hour-and-a-half hearing, Judge David Sentelle questioned whether it is an invasion of privacy if the NSA simply collects the data, stopping short of using it. Is it not an invasion “with mere collection?” asked Sentelle. It is not, replied Justice Department lawyer H. Thomas Byron. Arguing against the NSA program, activist attorney Larry Klayman disputed Byron, telling Judge Janice Rogers Brown that “collection is enough” to justify pursuing the lawsuit against the government.

the trust the American people have placed in us to keep our nuclear weapons safe and secure.” On Monday the Air Force confirmed to The Associated Press that it had removed Col. Carl Jones as vice commander of the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, in charge of 150 Minuteman 3 missiles. He was dismissed “for a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership abilities,” and has been reassigned as a special assistant to the wing commander. The actions were disclosed in response to an AP inquiry about an internal Air Force investigation of two commanders at the 91st Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, which also is responsible for 150 Minuteman 3 missiles. Lt. Col. John Sheets, spokesman for Air Force Global Strike Command, said that as a result of the Minot investigation a missile squadron commander, Lt. Col. Jimmy “Keith” Brown, was relieved of command Monday “because of a loss of confidence in Brown’s ability to lead his squadron.” Sheets said the investigation was directed by Maj. Gen. Jack Weinstein, commander of the 20th Air Force, and “substantiated that Brown engaged in unlawful discrimination or harassment.” The probe found that Brown “made statements to subordinates that created a perception within his squadron

that pregnancy would negatively affect a woman’s career.” The probe also said Brown had failed to ensure the wellbeing of his troops. In March a two-person crew operating a Minuteman 3 launch control center at Minot felt ill from fumes created by a refurbishment project, but the crew remained at their post because they believed Brown would have taken action against them had they left. They later were hospitalized, Sheets said. Col. Richard Pagliuco, commander of the 91st Operations Group, in charge of the three missile squadrons at Minot, including Brown’s, “failed to promote and safeguard the morale, well-being and welfare of the airmen under his command,” Sheets said. Pagliuco received a letter in his personnel file, but Sheets said he could not be more specific about the punishment. The complaints against Jones, the vice commander of the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren, were the most extensive, according to Sheets. Sheets said Jones’ immediate superior, Col. Tracey Hayes, commander of the 90th, removed him following an internal investigation that substantiated allegations of conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman, and cruelty and maltreatment of a subordinate. The most recent incident was one in which Jones went to a thrift store operated on F.E. Warren by volunteers — Air-

man’s Attic — to discuss the store’s hours. “He hit the sign on the Airman’s Attic door and repeatedly hit the shop’s front counter while raising his voice, using profanity” and threatening to shut down the place, Sheets said. Three other incidents of allegedly inappropriate behavior on base by Jones were substantiated in the investigation, including one in May in which Jones berated a first lieutenant in front of others at the Trail’s End Club, a dining and lounge facility on F.E. Warren. The lieutenant and another witness “found the interaction inappropriate and were in disbelief and shocked by Jones’ behavior,” Sheets said. These were the latest in a string of at least 16 firings or disciplinary actions against senior nuclear officers. They began with the dismissal in June 2013 of Lt. Col. Randy Olson as commander of the 91st Operations Support Squadron, in charge of the training and proficiency of missile launch control officers at Minot. His firing followed an AP story disclosing that 19 launch officers had been taken off the job after a poor inspection result and attitude problems. In August 2013, just days after the 341st Missile Wing failed a nuclear inspection, the commander of security forces there, Col. David Lynch, was fired.

Abducted woman’s ATM card used in Maryland By SEAN CARLIN Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — A bank card belonging to a woman abducted from a Philadelphia street was used the next morning in Maryland, police said Tuesday as relatives tearfully pleaded for her return. Detectives said security images showed a man using Carlesha Freeland-Gaither’s card at 6 a.m. Monday at an ATM just off a highway exit for Aberdeen, about 75 miles from Philadelphia. The transaction occurred less than nine hours after the reported abduction Sunday night. Chief Inspector Dennis Wilson said Philadelphia police were working with Maryland authorities and the FBI to search the area. It was a fresh lead in a case that quickly gained attention after police released black-andwhite surveillance video showing the 22-year-old woman flailing in vain as a man rushed her along a sidewalk to a parked car. The FBI said Tuesday it

would offer a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect. Local officials previously pledged $17,000 in rewards. “Our goal is the safe return of Carlesha to her family and friends,” Christian Zajac, the assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia office, said at a news conference. Several of Freeland-Gaither’s relatives also spoke. Her grandmother Ana Mulero said the missing woman had lived with her in Maryland for several years and still had acquaintances there. “Just return her to us, to her family,” Mulero said. “We need her.” Freeland-Gaither’s mother, Keisha Gaither, said: “I just want her home. She got family. She’s loved. Just let her come home.” To her daughter, Gaither said: “Just fight. Don’t give up. Just fight.” Freeland-Gaither, a nursing assistant at Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia, had graduated from high school in

Maryland and lived with her grandfather in Philadelphia until a couple of months ago, when she moved in with her boyfriend, relatives said. Police said they were unsure if Freeland-Gaither might have known her abductor or whether there was more than one person involved. A witness called 911 at about 9:40 p.m. Sunday and reported seeing a woman identified as Freeland-Gaither screaming for help as she was forced into a dark gray four-door vehicle. Police said Freeland-Gaither’s glasses and cellphone were dropped on the street, near piles of broken auto glass.

The witness said FreelandGaither — described by her parents as easy going until she’s threatened — broke the car’s rear side windows before the vehicle sped off. Police said the suspect is in his 20s and about 5-foot-10 with a medium to heavy build. They said he is likely driving a gray, four-door Ford sedan — the vehicle in the surveillance video — likely built between 2000 and 2002. Freeland-Gaither’s parents circulated fliers in Germantown, the neighborhood where she lived and was last seen. Facebook groups sprung up with prayers for her safe return.

Kurds help Islamic militants in battle By BASSEM MROUE, and QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA Associated Press

BEIRUT — Ethnic Kurds are helping members of the Islamic State group in the battle for the key Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani, sharing their knowledge of the local terrain and language with the extremists, according to Iraqi and Kurdish officials. It is not clear how many Kurds are aiding the estimated 3,000 Islamic State militants in the Kobani area — and fighting against their own Kurdish brethren — but activists say they are playing a major role in the 7-week-old conflict near the Turkish border. A top military commander for the extremists in the town is an Iraqi Kurd, known by the nom de guerre of Abu Khattab al-Kurdi, helping them in the battle against fellow Kurds. Officials with the main Syrian Kurdish force known as the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, say they became aware of the Kurds among the mostly Sunni Muslim extremists early in the fighting. As Kurdish fighters were defending the nearby Syrian village of Shiran in September, two Kurdish men with different accents and wearing YPG uniforms infiltrated their ranks,

Kurdish officials said. Upon questioning, however, they were captured and admitted to fighting for the Islamic State group, the officials added. Iraqi and Kurdish officials say many of the Kurdish fighters with the Islamic State group are from the northeastern Iraqi town of Halabja, which was bombed with chemical weapons by Saddam Hussein’s forces in 1988, killing some 5,000 people. Shorsh Hassan, a YPG spokesman in Kobani, said although most of the Kurdish jihadi fighters come from Iraq, some are from Syrian regions such as Kobani, Afrin and Jazeera. He added that the number of Syrian Kurds is small compared with the dozens of Iraqis fighting with the IS group. “The fighter who is from Kobani is not like someone who hails from Chechnya with no idea about tracks and roads,” Hassan said. Thousands of militants from all over the world — including north Africans, Asians and some Westerners — have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the ranks of the Islamic State group. Turkish nationals are among them, but it is unknown if any are fighting in Kobani. Hassan said many of the Iraqi fighters were from Halab-

Still, most Kurds are moderate and secular-leaning Muslims.

ja, including al-Kurdi. Websites affiliated with the Islamic State group recently published several photographs of the young, bearded man, including some of him wearing the traditional Kurdish garb of baggy pants, and others of him standing in front of Kurds killed in Kobani. In Baghdad, an Iraqi security official said al-Kurdi was a member of Ansar al-Islam, a

Sunni militant group with ties to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the late leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, who was active in the early 2000s. Al-Kurdi later joined the Islamic State group, the official said. The Iraqi official said alKurdi is also from Halabja and is wanted by Iraqi authorities. He refused to give the man’s real name when pressed by The Associated Press.

“Our latest information is that he is in Syria fighting in the Kobani area. He is an expert in mountainous areas,” the Iraqi official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media. “He is commanding the Kurdish group within Daesh because he is a Kurd,” he added, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group. Halabja was known as a secular village and the home of Abdullah Goran, one of the best-known Kurdish poets in the 20th century and a member of the Iraqi Communist Party. But in the past three decades, Muslim preachers have become active and have turned it into one of Iraqi Kurdistan’s most religiously conservative areas. Still, most of the Kurds are moderate and secular-leaning Muslims. Many Kurds in Iraq were stunned when they learned that Kiwan Mohammed, the 25-year-old goalkeeper of Halabja’s soccer team, was killed last month in Syria while fighting for the Islamic State group in Kobani. Mohammed was identified by jihadi websites as Abu Walid al-Kurdi. Dana Jalal, an Iraqi journalist who follows jihadi groups, said the Iraqi athlete left Syria

in July 2013 and had not been heard of until his death. Some 70 Iraqi Kurds, mostly from Halabja, went to fight in Syria with the Islamic State group, Jalal said. Most go through Turkey where they say they are going for tourism, but theu then they cross into Syria, and “some even take their wives with them,” Jalal added. Nawaf Khalil, the Europebased spokesman for Syria’s powerful Kurdish Democratic Union Party, said Kurdish fighters within the Islamic State group are invaluable in the Kobani battle because they know the geography, as well as the language and the mentality of fellow Kurds. “A main part of their work is tapping (electronic surveillance) and intelligence-gathering. They might be also using some from the Kobani area to benefit from the geographical knowledge of the area,” he said. Mustafa Bali, a Kurdish activist in Kobani, said that by having Kurdish fighters, Islamic State extremists are trying to win the hearts and minds of Syrian Kurds in the area. “Daesh is trying to tell the people of Kobani that it does not consider them enemies and its fighters include Kurds,” Bali said.

Ukrainian president sends more troops to the east By PETER LEONARD and NATALIYA VASILYEVA Associated Press

KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s president said Tuesday that additional troops are being deployed to the east, where fighting continues to rage between government forces and proRussian separatist fighters. Petro Poroshenko said the units would defend cities still under government control against possible incursions. His remarks came after Ukrainian security officials claimed over the weekend that Russia has intensified the transfer of troops and military equipment to separatist rebels. Mos-

cow denies it aids the rebels. “Several new units have been formed that will enable us to repel possible attacks in the direction of Mariupol and Berdyansk, Kharkiv, and areas north of Luhansk and the Dnipropetrovsk region,” Poroshenko said, according to a statement on the presidential website. Tensions have spiked since the weekend, when rebels held an election that was condemned by the West and Ukraine as illegal and destabilizing. “In recent days, Russia-supported separatists have publicly stated their intention to expand the territory under their control. We strongly condemn ongoing separatist attacks in Meriupol

and Dubalsiva and around the Donetsk Airport,” U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters in Washington. “Any attempt to push further into Ukraine would be another violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and a gross violation of the Minsk agreements signed by Russia, Ukraine, and the separatists,” she added, referring to the much-violated case-fire agreed upon in September. Ukraine and Western governments say Sunday’s poll gravely endangered the ceasefire that envisioned local elections across the whole of the east but under Ukrainian law. Russia, however, quickly lent

its support to the vote. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, underlining her displeasure over what she said was Russia’s role in the conflict, said Tuesday there is no reason yet to lift European Union sanctions against Moscow. Merkel said she hopes for a diplomatic solution to Ukraine’s crisis but added the vote shows “how difficult it is even to maintain agreements that have been made, if we look at the illegal elections.” On Tuesday morning, the separatist leader in the Donetsk region, Alexander Zakharchenko, 38, was sworn in as head of a self-declared secessionist territory. He was inaugurated in a

heavily guarded theater in the city of Donetsk, the main stronghold of a rebel-controlled territory that separatists call the Donetsk People’s Republic. Zakharchenko’s election was largely a formality as no strong candidates opposed him, but the rebels say the vote gives them a mandate to pursue their secessionist goals. Zakharchenko took the stage after four sabre-wielding Cossacks carried in the flag of the Donetsk People’s Republic. He swore the oath of office with his hand on a Bible to applause and whistles from audience members — many of them men in combat fatigues carrying automatic rifles.

Lawmakers from Russia and Georgia’s breakaway republic of Abkhazia, whose independence is recognized only by Russia and three other countries, later mounted the stage. Russian lawmaker Alexei Zhuravlev congratulated Zakharchenko, declaring: “Russia doesn’t give up on its own.” Post-inauguration entertainment included a traditional Russian dance troupe led by a performer in a bear suit. The inauguration coincided with Russia’s National Unity Day holiday, which saw rallies throughout the country, including one in Moscow that police estimated at 75,000 participants.

Mexico mayor, wife detained in case of 43 missing By E. EDUARDO CASTILLO Associated Press

MEXICO CITY — Federal police early Tuesday detained the former mayor of the southern Mexican city of Iguala and his wife, who are accused of ordering the Sept. 26 attacks on teachers’ college students that left six dead and 43 still missing. Jose Luis Abarca and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda, were arrested in Iztapalapa, a working-class neighborhood in eastern Mexico City, where they were hiding out in a house, according to a Federal Police official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. They were arrested in an early morning raid carried out without a shot, then taken to the Attorney General’s Office, where they were giving state-

ments. At least 56 other people have been arrested so far in the case, and the Iguala police chief is still a fugitive. The couple’s detention could shed light on the disappearances, which have prompted outraged demonstrations across the country to demand the students be found. “This was the missing piece,” Felipe de la Cruz, a parent of one of the missing, told Milenio television. “This arrest will help us find our kids. It was the government who took our kids.” According to authorities, Abarca spent the evening of Sept. 26 dining out. He originally told the media that he ordered police to leave the students alone, that they were just passing through. But since Abarca requested a leave of absence and fled days after the incident, authorities have identified the couple as

ordering the attack. Officials have described how the couple ran Iguala like a fiefdom in cooperation with the local cartel, Guerreros Unidos. Abarca received payments of 2 million to 3 million pesos ($150,000$220,000) every few weeks, as a bribe and to pay off his corrupt police force, according to Attorney General Jose Murillo Karam, who on Oct. 22 gave a detailed account of the couple’s alleged collusion with organized crime. He called Pineda a major operator in the cartel, an offshoot of the Beltran Leyva gang. Two of her brothers were on former President Felipe Calderon’s most-wanted drug trafficker list until they were killed in 2009. A third brother, Salamon Pineda, was believed to run the territory in northern Guerrero state for the cartel. Guerreros Unidos have increasingly turned to the lu-

crative practice of growing opium poppies and sending opium paste to be refined for heroin destined for the U.S. market, according to a federal official. The students from a rural teachers college had gone to Iguala to canvass for donations and authorities say Abarca ordered the attack, believing the students were aiming to disrupt a speech by Pineda, who was holding a public event that night as head of the local family services office. She aspired to succeed her husband as mayor. Some lookouts reported the students’ arrival to town, where they had commandeered some public buses. Police, working with the Guerreros Unidos, mounted a series of attacks that killed six. With confusion of the events late Sept. 26 and early Sept. 27, it took several days to confirm that the 43 remained

missing. The search for the students has taken authorities to the hills above Iguala, where 30 bodies have been found in mass graves but none has been identified so

far as any of the students. Last week, the search turned to a gully near a trash dump in the neighboring city of Cocula, but still no remains have been identified.

A lower key as Iran marks United States embassy takeover By NASSER KARIMI Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran — Thousands of Iranians chanted “Down with America” on Tuesday in rallies marking the anniversary of the 1979 takeover of U.S. Embassy in Tehran. But the annual show of America-bashing by Iran’s hard-liners seemed to bring little public enthusiasm amid the push by moderate President Hassan Rouhani for a nuclear agreement with Washington. More than 10,000 people joined the anniversary rally outside the former embassy compound in the capital. That was thousands less than the last year’s rally, the first since Rouhani’s election, when his hardline rivals sought to make a resounding show of opposition to

any concessions to the United States. Rouhani has made the negotiations the centerpiece of his administration, betting that he can secure a deal that would lift international sanctions and end Iran’s isolation. That has been a major hope among many Iranians, who are looking for a boost to the ailing economy. The U.S. and its allies say the accord must ensure that Iran cannot use its nuclear program to build a weapon. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif are to hold key talks on the nuclear program next week in Oman’s capital Muscat, where they will be joined by the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton.

The embassy anniversary this year coincided with Ashoura, a Shiite holy day commemorating the 7th century martyrdom of Imam Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad revered by Shiites who was killed in a battle with rival Muslims. The coincidence may have diminished turnout for the embassy rally, since millions around the country were more focused on Ashoura religious rites. Also, schools were out, meaning hard-liner organizers of the embassy protest could not bus in students as they have in past years to fill out numbers. Still, hard-liners sought to use both Ashoura and the anniversary to draw a line against any concessions to the United States. In recent days, post-

ers appeared in the streets of Tehran denouncing the U.S. government as the “Shimr of this age.” Shimr was the fighter who killed Imam Hussein in the Battle of Karbala. Tuesday’s crowd outside the former embassy burned U.S., Israeli and British flags as they chanted against all three countries. The main speaker at the rally, cleric and university professor Ali Reza Panahian, compared the U.S. to Hussein’s enemies — the forces of the Ummayad sultan Yazid, which surrounded Hussein and his loyalists and crushed them in Karbala, in present day Iraq. “Today, the evil arrogant powers have learned that they should encircle believers of the region and behead them in the

same way that the enemies of Hussein encircled him,” Panahian said. He vowed that the negotiations will never change Iran’s anti-U.S. stance, saying the Iranian people seek the “toppling of the global arrogance” — the term used by hardliners for the U.S. Also at the rally, the head of the Basij organization, paramilitary wing of the powerful Revolutionary Guards, said the negotiations are intended only to reveal American intentions to oppress Iran. “Iran will never go through the path of concessions,” Mohammad Reza Naghdi told reporters. The negotiators have a Nov. 24 deadline to seal the final deal, though they could mutually decide to extend the talks.

The West suspects Iran’s nuclear program is aimed at producing atomic weapons, a charge Tehran denies, insisting it’s for peaceful purposes only. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all Iranian state matters, has repeatedly backed the talks even though he has expressed doubts about the intentions of the six-member group — the five permanent U.N. Security Council members and Germany — in the negotiations. In contrast to the anti-U.S. rhetoric in Tuesday’s rallies, an adviser of Zarif said Iran-U.S. relations have changed from being openly hostile to friendly. But “it’s a friendly relationship not based on trust, not yet,” Ali Khorram said in comments reported in newspapers Sunday.

Russia has informed the United States it plans nuclear summit boycott By GEORGE JAHN and DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press

VIENNA — Russia has informed the United States that it will boycott the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit, diplomats told The Associated Press on Tuesday, potentially stripping the meeting of one of its key participants and hurting efforts initiated by President Barack Obama to reduce the threat of nuclear terrorism. Officials already had told the AP on Monday that Moscow was absent from last week’s initial summit planning session in Washington but had left it unclear whether Russia planned to attend the summit itself.

On Tuesday, two diplomats said the boycott applied to the 2016 meeting as well. They cited as their source a diplomatic note from Moscow to the U.S. and other nations planning to participate. The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not allowed to discuss confidential information. One of the diplomats said the note expressed opposition to the summit because of its alleged political nature. He cited the note as saying that any meeting on nuclear security should be on a technical level and convened not by a nation but by the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency. Russia has participated in such summits in the past. But

the diplomat, who is familiar with Moscow’s stance, said it already had reservations while attending the last meeting in March at The Hague. He did not specify but added that the “changed political atmosphere” — shorthand for Russia-U.S. tensions over Ukraine — added to the Kremlin’s decision to stay away. In Moscow, Russian Foreign Ministry officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Gary Samore, who advised Obama on nonproliferation until last year, said the Russian decision showed that “nuclear security has become a victim of geopolitics.” But Samore, who is now

with Harvard’s Belfer Center said Russia might change its mind by 2016, assuming that “a political settlement in Ukraine can be achieved.” At the last summit, 35 countries discussed turning international guidelines on nuclear

security into national laws and opening their procedures for protecting nuclear installations to independent scrutiny. The summit also featured new reduction commitments, with Japan, Italy and Belgium agreeing to cut their stocks of highly

enriched uranium and plutonium. But Russian reluctance to go along with the U.S.-backed initiative already was apparent. Moscow refused to back such a 35-nation agreement, as did China, India and Pakistan.

Ole Miss drops out of top 4 college rankings STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

Mississippi State, Florida State and Auburn held the top three spots in the second College Football Playoff rankings, with Oregon joining them in the top four Tuesday night. Marcus Mariota and the Ducks, coming off a 45-16 win over Stanford, moved up one spot from fifth in the initial poll by the 12-member selection committee. They moved in ahead of Alabama, a third team from the West Division of the Southeastern Conference that was also up one place to fifth. “It was very close, and I think it’s the product of Oregon’s other wins they have,” Arkansas athletic director and selection committee chairman Jeff

Long said. “They have the Michigan State win, but they also, again, went on the road against UCLA and won, and a couple of wins that made their body of work, put them a step ahead of (Alabama) at this point.” Mississippi dropped seven spots to 11th after its second consecutive loss, 35-31 to Auburn. The Rebels remained ahead of four one-loss teams from power-five conferences, directly ahead of Baylor, Nebraska and Ohio State — Nos. 12-14, and all higher than a week ago. Auburn is the highest ranked of the 12 one-loss teams in the rankings that will ultimately determine the national semifinals, and set matchups for the other four marquee New Year’s Day bowls that are part of the playoff rotation.

Mississippi State held on to No. 1 after a 17-10 victory over Arkansas, when the Bulldogs trailed after halftime for the first time this season. Florida State overcame a 21-0 deficit at Louisville and won 42-31. The Bulldogs and Seminoles are the only remaining undefeated teams from power-five conferences, and Long said “it really wasn’t close” to any chance of them flip-flopping in the top two spots. “We stayed pretty consistent with the way we looked at 1 and 2 with Mississippi State and Florida State,” Long said. “Auburn was a little bit behind in No. 3, but they were a solid No. 3.” Marshall, which is 8-0 in Conference USA, again didn’t make the Top 25 playoff rankings.

Big 12 leader Kansas State moved up two spots to seventh, hopping over Michigan State, which remained eighth. “Less about Michigan State, but more about Kansas State adding to their body of work,” Long said, referring to the Wildcats, who are coming off a 48-14 win over Oklahoma State. Kansas State plays at TCU on Saturday night, and Oregon is at Utah, which stayed 17th in the playoff rankings after a 19-16 loss at Arizona State. The Sun Devils made the biggest upward move, five spots to ninth. That is one spot ahead of Notre Dame, which rounded out the top 10 for the second week in a row, and plays at Arizona State on Saturday. The final playoff rankings will be

released Dec. 7, the day after most of the conference championships are decided.

Winston hearing set

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — An attorney says Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s student code of conduct hearing has been scheduled for the week of Nov. 17. John Clune, a lawyer for the woman who says Winston sexually assaulted her, confirmed the time frame Tuesday to The Associated Press. Winston is facing a university hearing to determine whether he violated four sections of the code of conduct — two for sexual misconduct and two for endangerment. The former female student said he assaulted her in December 2012.

Rockets win battle of unbeatens Ovechkin takes team record in Houston tops Miami to move loss to Flames to 5-0 on big play of Harden

WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Ovechkin became the leading scorer in Capitals’ history, raising his career point total to 827 with a pair of assists in Washington’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. Sean Monahan scored the winning goal for Calgary at 4:17 of the extra period after the Flames tied it late in regulation. Washington has lost five straight since winning at Calgary on Oct. 25. Ovechkin moved atop the scoring list when his shot from the left point was deflected by Nicklas Backstrom through the legs of goalie Jonas Hiller at 10:18 of the first period. That broke a tie with Peter Bondra. The 29-year-old Ovechkin, a native of Moscow, has 428 goals and 399 assists.

Marchand, who also set up Patrice Bergeron’s second-period goal, shifted around defenseman Dylan Olsen and lifted a wrist shot over goaltender Roberto Luongo for the winner. Jussi Jokinen scored for the Panthers, who have earned points

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Thomas Greiss made 33 saves while extending Pittsburgh’s shutout streak to 205 minutes, 28 seconds, and the Penguins handed the Wild their first defeat in six home games. Nick Spaling, Brandon Sutter and Chris Kunitz scored for the Penguins, whose run of unanswered goals also ended at 18 when Nino Niederreiter got one on See NHL, page A-11

Royals trio land Gold Gloves, Molina gets 7th straight NEW YORK (AP) — All those snazzy plays by Alex Gordon, Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez earned them more than tips of the hat from their Kansas City teammates. The Royals trio wound up snagging Gold Gloves, too. “It was something that was pretty special to watch,” Gordon said. Three Baltimore players also were honored by Rawlings on Tuesday for fielding excellence, as was St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina for the seventh year in a row. The Royals paid tribute to each other throughout a run to the World Series, tipping their caps after fine plays. Kansas City lost in seven games to San Francisco — none of the Giants won Glove Gloves. “The whole entire team, what we did defensively all year, that’s part of our game,” Hosmer said on a conference call. Gordon, who began his career as a third baseman before becoming a regular left fielder, won for the fourth straight year. Perez at catcher and Hosmer at first base have two wins apiece. “We’ve said from day one, if you can’t play defense, there’s probably not a spot for you in our everyday lineup,” Royals general manager Day-

ton Moore said. Perez said he thought Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain, third baseman Mike Moustakas and shortstop Alcides Escobar could win Gold Gloves in the near future. Managers and coaches voted for the awards in their own leagues. The Society for American Baseball Research’s Defensive Index factored about 25 percent into the results. Gold Gloves have often been among the most discussed and disputed of the postseason awards. More advanced ways of measuring glovework such as Ultimate Zone Rating and Defensive WAR have sometimes overtaken statistics such as errors and fielding percentage that often determined the winners. Reputation also carried a lot of weight over the years. Cincinnati and Philadelphia, the top two teams in the majors this year by fielding percentage, didn’t have any winners. Baltimore center fielder Adam Jones won for the fourth time, Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy won his third in a row and teammate Nick Markakis won his second in right field. Markakis has become a free agent since the season ended. There were six first-time winners

— Mets center fielder Juan Lagares, Miami left fielder Christian Yelich, Colorado second baseman DJ LeMahieu and Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke in the National League and Seattle third baseman Kyle Seager and Houston pitcher Dallas Keuchel in the American League. I feel so excited and happy,” Lagares said. “It’s a special honor.” Other winners were Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia for the fourth time each, Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons, Braves right fielder Jason Heyward and Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado. “To be able to be recognized defensively is pretty special, considering that really wasn’t my reputation, coming into the big leagues,” Yelich said. “It’s cool feeling you’re a complete player.” Molina is tied with Bob Boone for third place for most Gold Gloves by a catcher. Ivan Rodriguez won 13 and Johnny Bench 10 in awards that began in 1957. Gonzalez and Pedroia each earned a $100,000 bonus for winning and Hardy, Jones and Markakis will get $75,000 each. Gordon, Molina and Perez made $50,000 apiece and Simmons and HeyC

ward earned $25,000 each. The Gold Glove triggered contract escalators for Perez, with the price of Kansas City’s options rising from $3.75 million to $3,825,000 in 2017, from $5 million to $5.15 million in 2018 and $6 million to $6.3 million in 2019.

Kershaw in running for MVP and Cy Young NEW YORK (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is among the finalists for the NL Most Valuable Player and the Cy Young Award, in position to become the first NL player to sweep both honors since Bob Gibson in 1968. Kershaw is joined by Pittsburgh outfielder Andrew McCutchen — the 2013 winner — and Miami outfielder Giancarlo Stanton as the NL MVP finalists, the Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced Tuesday. Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto and St. Louis’ Adam Wainwright are competing with the Los Angeles left-hander for the NL Cy Young. Since Gibson won both awards in 1968 along with Detroit’s Denny McLain, six AL pitchers have swept MVP and Cy Young in the same year:

Oakland’s Vida Blue (1971), Milwaukee’s Rollie Fingers (1981), Detroit’s Willie Hernandez (1984), Boston’s Roger Clemens (1986), Oakland’s Dennis Eckersley (1992) and Detroit’s Justin Verlander (2011). In the AL, the MVP finalists are Cleveland outfielder Michael Brantley, Detroit designated hitter Victor Martinez and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, who finished second to the Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera in each of the last two votes. The Cy Young finalists are Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale, Seattle’s Felix Hernandez and Cleveland’s Corey Kluber. Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom, Cincinnati outfielder Billy Hamilton and St. Louis second baseman Kolten Wong are competing for NL Rookie of the Year. Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu, New York Yankees reliever Dellin Betances and Angels right-hander Matt Shoemaker are the AL finalists. San Francisco’s Bruce Bochy, Pittsburgh’s Clint Hurdle and Washington’s Matt Williams are the NL Manager of the Year finalists, and Baltimore’s Buck Showalter, the Angels’ Mike Scioscia and Kansas City’s Ned Yost are vying for the AL honor.

NASCAR penalizes crew members, no drivers CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Brad Keselowski and Jeff Gordon avoided any penalty from NASCAR on Tuesday for their post-race fight at Texas. Two crew chiefs and four crew members from Hendrick Motorsports were punished for their roles in the brawl. NASCAR suspended three Hendrick crew members for six races for being “involved in a post-race physical altercation” and fined them each $25,000. A fourth Hendrick crew member was fined $10,000 and suspended for three races for the same offense. Gordon crew chief Alan Gustafson and Kasey Kahne crew chief Kenny Francis were each fined $50,000 and placed on probation for six races be-

cause “the crew chief assumes responsibility for the actions of his team members.” NASCAR senior vice president of competition Robin Pemberton said the post-race actions were “unacceptable” following a review of content of the incident. NASCAR “identified several crew members who crossed the line with their actions, specifically punching others.” “A NASCAR championship is at stake, but we can’t allow behavior that crosses the line to go unchecked, particularly when it puts others in harm’s way,” Pemberton said. Suspended for six races and fined $25,000 were: Jeremy Fuller, the Kahne crew member who came from behind the scrum and threw several hay-

makers toward Keselowski, as well as Gordon crew members Dwayne Doucette and Jason Ingle. Dean Mozingo, another Gordon crew member, was fined $10,000 and suspended three races. Hendrick Motorsports said it would not appeal, and the punished team members would not face further sanctions from the organization. Hendrick team owner Rick Hendrick said in a statement the new Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format has brought “an unprecedented level of intensity every single week.” “Emotions run high when you’re racing for a championship, and that’s exciting for our

fans and everyone involved with the sport. But there’s a line the competitors need to be cognizant of, and we understand that,” he said. He also defended Gordon, the four-time champion who confronted Keselowski after contact between the two on the track. Gordon had been racing for a win that would have moved him into the Nov. 16 championship finale when a caution bunched the field for a restart in overtime. Keselowski tried to wedge his car through a gap between Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, but made contact with Gordon that caused Gordon to spin when his tire went flat. He wound up 29th and went from first to fourth in the standings.

make sure they are transparent in their actions. “I encourage more people to get involved,” he said. “We have so much at stake if we don’t stay vigilant and try to control our destiny, other people will do it for us.” Voters at the Sterling Community Center favored Micciche because he was the more familiar candidate. Sterling resident Ernie Wall said he voted for Micciche because he has conservative values and would be the best person to get the state budget in order. “We have gotten too liberal through the years and our budget is out of control,” Wall said. “We need to get back to our values.” Sterling residents Rodger and Gloria Ager both voted for Trieder. Gloria Ager said she liked Treider because he would bring a different perspective to the senate that is not focused on big business. Tom Hubbard, of Sterling, said the main reason he voted for Micciche was for his experience dating back to his days as Soldotna mayor. He said he likes how he makes himself available to the public. Soldotna resident Brenda Quinn said she voted for Micciche because he is active in the community. “I know him and worked with him on several projects and he seems to have gone a good job,” Quinn said. “He cares about the community.” In Nikiski, voters were more familiar with Micciche and what he can do to advance the gas line project. Sybille Castro said said she has talked to Micciche and thinks he has the right balance of job creation and environment protection for the position. “I’m all for jobs and prosperity, but not at the cost of wilderness and the whole ideology of what Alaska stands for,” she said. “(Micciche’s) a Republican, but I voted for him because he’s personally good.”

“Another issue is the budget,” he said. “How do we keep our spending under control to match the revenues that we take in? The gas pipeline is still going to be one of the biggest issues we have out there. We’re not putting pipe in the ground yet, but we’re further along then we’ve been, we need to stay that course and make a project of that magnitude happen.” At a party for the Democratic Party at Stanley Ford in Kenai, Knudsen sat quietly watching election results roll in on a big screen television near the front of the dealership’s display room. He held an early lead as precinct results were reported, but was quickly surpassed by Chenault. “I was a little bit surprised at the first (results) I said,” he said. “It was a probably a little higher than I thought it might

be.” Still the idea that more than 1,100 people voted for him carries some weight. “It makes me feel that I’m glad that I (ran),” he said. “Maybe we got some people out to vote that didn’t vote before. If we did get people out and voter turnout improved, that’s what I really wanted to accomplish.” Sybille Castro said she voted for Knudsen and for gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker because they stood for open government. “We need transparent government here in Alaska, no more backroom deals,” she said. “Alaskans need to put Alaska first. It’s very important that no outside money will influence our state anymore.” Now that the pressure of the race is off, Knudsen said he is looking forward to relaxing in

his Nikiski home. “I built a new shop this year and I need to finish that,” he said. “I’ve got wood, I didn’t get a chance to cut wood, but I’ve got a lot of wood to split.” Knudsen, a newcomer to politics, said he had been naive going into the race. “There was a lot of things I was surprised about,” he said. “One of the things is all of the questionnaires that get sent to you. That’s probably the biggest thing.” Still, the process wasn’t all bad for him. “Right know, I don’t know if I really want to run again, but I think I learned enough to help someone else run,” Knudsen said.

Kenai resident Wendy Olsen said she supports Olson because his political views match up closely with her own. It was difficult running as the challenger to an incumbent, Thornton said in a previous Clarion interview. She chose to campaign up until the evening of the election. “I will be on the corner (of Main Street and the Kenai Spur Highway) in Kenai all day until 6 p.m.,” Thornton said, referring to the corner. Soldotna resident Felissa Welch said she voted for Shauna Thornton based on her character. Thornton seems to be a nice, genuine person and easy to talk to. Welch said she met Thornton

while she was campaigning on the street in person only days before the election and decided to support her. Welch said she chooses politicians based on their character and beliefs. Ann Hall was a co-worker of Thornton’s at the Kenai Peninsula College for many years. “Shauna has always been dedicated to getting the job done,” Hall said. “She has always advocated for the people.” Kenai resident Colleen Nusbaum said Thornton is not a typical politician. Thornton is level headed and understands the community’s needs, she said. Thornton said next time around she will do ten times

more on-foot campaigning than she did during this year’s race. “We’re just going to come back next time harder and faster, and bigger and better,” Thornton said. “(I will be running for the) same race, same seat same everything. I am not going away.” After his own results came in, Olson said he would most likely be up until 4 a.m. following the gunbernatorial and national elections that will have an impact on Alaska. “That’s what happens when you are a political junky,” Olson said. “You never get enough.”

early and absentee ballots Nov. 11. There also are nearly 14,000 more absentee ballots that were requested and will be counted if returned in the next two weeks. Parnell held the early campaign edge in his quest for a second full term. But the race grew increasingly close after Walker joined forces with Byron Mallott, the Democratic gubernatorial primary winner. Besides facing a stronger challenge from the merged ticket, Parnell has been plagued by criticism from Walker and others that he dithered in han-

dling complaints of sexual abuse within the Alaska National Guard. Parnell got a last-minute election boost from former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who attended a rally for Parnell and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan in Anchorage on Monday. Walker received his own high-profile backing from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 vice presidential nominee, who urged voters Monday to support Walker. At the Anchorage rally,

Romney called Parnell a great governor for the future of Alaska. Parnell’s running mate is another Dan Sullivan, mayor of Anchorage. For weeks leading to Tuesday’s election, Parnell has defended himself against criticism that he didn’t do enough following complaints of sexual abuse within the Alaska National Guard that emerged in 2010. Walker was among those who criticized Parnell’s handling of the Guard scandal.

About my grandpa

Grandpa Ernest Cogswell.

North of Fort Collins, Colorado 1937 to 1950’S By Grannie Annie

M

C Y

y Grandpa Ernest Cogswell was born in 1886 in Friend, Nebraska and moved to Northern Colorado in 1904. He later lived with Grandma Freda in a basement house in the middle of a cherry and apple orchard, one mile north of where I was born and Dad and Mom had their farm. He died in 1958 when my oldest daughter Gail, was one year old. He got to enjoy her and looked forward to our visits even though he was ill. He was one of the kindest, quietest men I have known. He smoked a pipe, a crooked one that curve down over his lip. He also used Prince Albert Tobacco in his pipe. I loved the smell of that smoke, curling around his fringe of hair above his ears, leaving a bald shiny head. My picture of him to this day is Grandpa setting in his rocking chair, legs crossed, pipe in his mouth and a permanent smile on his face. The smell of Grandma’s sugar cookies in the Kerosene burning oven was always present. Maybe Grandpa’s smile was his anticipation of a warm sugar cookie. He made a ritual of everything worth eating. Get a coffee cup and saucer out, pour himself a cup from the always on the stove, percolating coffee pot. Pull out HIS chair at the little kitchen table. Grandma had already poured me a glass of cold milk and set it on the table at a chair next to Grandpa. The plate of warm sugar cookies was setting on the table and I would wait for Grandpa to get me a cookie first and put it on my plate and then he would take a cookie M scoot his saucer and cup full of coffee over to be closer to him and my clue was when K he picked up his cookie, I picked up mine and we both dunked our cookie at the same time! I still smile at the noise we made eating the dunked cookies and the smiles we had for Grandma, who by that time had sat down with her cup of coffee and a cookie. I always wondered why she did not dunk her cookie. Grandpa saved string, twine and rubber bands. Large balls of each were kept in a drawer waiting for another string or rubber band to be wrapped around. At one time one of my uncles wanted to know if the rubber band ball would bounce. Grandpa’s look of disapproval and the thought of dropping his ball of rubber bands stopped us both from doing just that. Sure would have been fun though!! The ball of string was very handy at all times and the twine was something he cherished - long or short pieces were wound around for safe keeping - just in case! Grandma save bread wrappers and the papers that butter was wrapped in. She buttered the bread loaf pans with them and when the loaves of fresh bread came out of her kerosene oven - she used the butter wrappers, dipped in butter to slather on top of the hot loaves of bread. Grandpa and I would have to wait 10 minutes for Grandma to cut into the warm loaf of bread. Same ritual - Grandpa’s coffee, my glass of milk - warm slices of bread with melting butter on them and the very best of all, was the sugar she sprinkle on top. Sometimes she would sprinkle cinnamon on too. I would always wait for Grandpa to pick his up and take a bite before I picked mine up. Oh, oh my, I think I should bake a loaf of bread or a batch of Grandma’s sugar cookies and thank God for those wonderful memories...

If you’ve not made meringue because it looks intimidating, a few pointers will help you achieve success. Although making meringue may appear to be something of a magic act, it’s not so much magic, as it is science. Even a speck of egg yolk mixed into the white of an egg will prevent it from whipping property, so it’s best to separate eggs one at a time by first placing them in a small dish before adding them to the main mixing bowl. Also, keep in mind eggs will separate easier when they are cold, but will attain their greatest volume when whipped at room temperature. In addition, be sure all your mixing utensils are free of grease; grease and oil will keep egg whites from whipping properly. You’ll also want to pay careful attention to your recipe. Egg whites and cream of tartar need to be beaten to soft peaks before the sugar – just a tablespoon at a time – is incorporated into the mixture. Adding the sugar slowly not only helps the sugar to dissolve, but also improves the likelihood of producing a billowy, fluffy meringue. Lastly, keep an eye on the weather. Meringues like dry, humidity-free days. Too much mois-

Like magic, whipped egg whites can be piped through a pastry bag for making star-shaped cookies or crust for “Sweet Chocolate Cream Pie.”

When Sweet Chocolate Cream Pie is served, everyone has room for dessert.

Red Lobster decides to back crawl into its shell CANDICE CHOI AP Food Industry Writer

NEW YORK — It turns out people go to Red Lobster for the seafood. The struggling chain on Monday announced another revamped menu that removes dishes including Spicy Tortilla Soup and a Wood-Grilled Pork Chop, while tacking on more dishes featuring lobster. The nonseafood dishes had been added by the chain’s previous owner, Darden Restaurants Inc., in hopes of attracting people who don’t like seafood as sales declined. But the new management thinks that was a mistake. “At the end of the day, we believe that seafood is really why people AP Photo/Red Lobster This undated product image provided by Red Lobster shows its new Wood-Grilled come to Red Lobster,” said Salli Lobster, Shrimp and Salmon dish. Red Lobster on Monday, plans to announce Setta, Red Lobster’s president, in a another revamped menu that removes dishes including Spicy Tortilla Soup and a phone interview.

seafood, up from 75 percent. Red Lobster says the menu will be easier to navigate and features more photos of the food. Four of the five new dishes include lobster, and it’s increasing the amount of shrimp in the popular “Ultimate Feast” platter by 50 percent. The price of the dish, which also includes lobster and crab, will go up by a dollar to $26.99. The reversal comes after Red Lobster was sold off to investment firm Golden Gate Capital by Darden this summer. Darden, which is based in Orlando, Florida, and owns Olive Garden, had failed to turn around the chain’s declining sales and blamed a variety of factors such as the growing availability of shrimp at other restaurants and price-sensitive customers. For its last fiscal year, Darden had said Red Lobster’s sales declined 6 percent at established locations, following a 2.2 percent decline the

previous year. Red Lobster, which is still operating out of Darden’s offices until it moves into its new home, no longer has to disclose its sales figures because it is privately held. Whether its new menu will win back customers remains to be seen, with people increasingly heading to chains like Chipotle where they feel they can get high-quality food without paying as much. Other changes had already been in the works. CEO Kim Lopdrup, who is back at Red Lobster after serving as its president from 2004 to 2011, has said steep discounting like “30 shrimp for $11.99” was a mistake. The chain this summer also started changing the way it plates its dishes, with fish piled over rice instead of having foods spread out on a dish. Red Lobster says that presentation is more visually appealing, while also helping retain the food’s heat.

Traverse City man makes use of vineyard leftovers BY CAROL THOMPSON, Traverse City Record-Eagle

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Grapes from Chateau Grand Traverse go through an extra step this season as they travel from vine to compost pile. The grapes are plucked and pressed and the juice heads toward fermenting tanks, just like it has since the winery launched in the 1970s. But there’s another step this year for the leftover skins and seeds, or pomace. Christoph Milz will step in to intercept the leftover material and use it to make another product — grape seed oil, according to the Traverse City Record-Eagle. Milz, who owns Traverse City-based Pressmeister Oils, will make grape seed oil from Chateau Grand Traverse grapes. Winery president Eddie

O’Keefe said wine and oil are a natural fit. Sniffing and swilling a spoonful of Milz’s coldpressed oil is like whiffing and sipping a nice wine, and both are made from grapes. “Wine is considered the ultimate value-added agricultural product,” O’Keefe said. “To take it one step further to produce oil is a wonderful thing.” Milz uses machinery he made to clean and press the grapes after Chateau Grand Traverse’s winemakers squeeze out the juice. He’ll then take the dried seeds back to his press and make varietal oils, such as Chardonnay and Pinot noir. “You can actually taste the difference,” Milz said. “The red grapes taste different than white grapes, and even within the white grapes you taste a difference.” It’s not easy to squeeze oil from a tough, drop-sized grape seed. The small brown seeds are

hard and don’t contain much oil compared to nuts and other seeds, but the oil is valuable, thanks to its high smoke point and popularity. Grape seeds aren’t Milz’s only local experiment. He took his equipment to Tandem Ciders in Suttons Bay to intercept the cidery’s Macintosh apple pomace after cider makers gathered the juice. He’ll press the seeds to make apple seed oil to send to restaurants around the country, such as Alinea in Chicago. The apple seed oil is more about Milz’s curiosity and passion than a business move. “We want to make this,” he said. “We’re convinced that it’s good. We’re excited about it. We want to have it and we know people will buy it.” Tandem Ciders co-owner Dan Young said apple pomace usually gets composted or churned into local corn fields,

and giving it to Milz instead makes sense for the Suttons Bay business. Young tried an apple seed oil sample last year. “It was really good,” he said. “It’s a little bitter, it’s a little fragrant. It has dimension.” Milz said he plans to experiment making a new oil from a local product every year. Making locally sourced oil isn’t so easy. Milz used black walnut oil as an example. He makes it with out-of-state nuts, even though customers with black walnut trees offer to give theirs away. But Milz isn’t prepared to hull, shell and dry those walnuts himself, and there’s nobody nearby who does it. “If we want these local things we need to develop this whole infrastructure,” Milz said. “This is what the grape seed project is about. It’s very exciting that we have this collaboration.”

A do-ahead delicious cornmeal Cream cheese produces the biscuit to sop up your gravy ultimate creamy pumpkin pie By ALISON LADMAN Associated Press

These rich cornmeal biscuits aren’t just an easy and delicious way to have fresh bread at the Thanksgiving table. They also let you get a jump on your dinner prep. The biscuits can be prepared up to the point of baking, then arranged on the pan, wrapped tightly in plastic and frozen for up to two weeks. They can be baked right from the freezer, but be sure to allow 3 to 4 minutes of extra cooking time than is called for in the recipe. These biscuits also are easily customized. We offer four suggestions for additions to the basic biscuit dough. Use one or all or any combination.

Cornbread Buttermilk Biscuits Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 12 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup cornmeal 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut in 1/2-inch cubes 1 egg 1/2 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup buttermilk Optional additions: 1 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese 1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapeno pepper slices 2/3 cup crumbled cooked

bacon or chopped ham 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives Heat the oven to 400° F. Mist a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder and sugar. Add the butter and use 2 knives or your fingertips to work the cubes into the dry mixture until no clump is larger than the size of a pea. If using any optional additions, mix them into the dry ingredients at this stage. Set aside. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the egg, cream and buttermilk. Add to the dry mixture and stir just until a dough comes

together. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat into a 1-inch-thick round. Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut the dough into rounds, gently reworking the scraps to cut additional biscuits (but do this only once). Arrange the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them several inches apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

In our search for the creamiest possible pumpkin pie, we decided to take our inspiration from the ultimate of creamy pies — cheesecake. We love the richness and depth cheesecake gets from its prime ingredient — cream cheese. That said, we didn’t want to bake a pumpkin cheesecake, which can be a bit too heavy after an already heavy meal. Plus, Thanksgiving is all about tradition and we love a classic pumpkin pie. But we did add just enough cream cheese to our favorite cream-based pumpkin pie filling to push it over the top in terms of creaminess. You’re going to love this. We opted for a chocolate crumb pie crust for this pie, but the filling will work wonderfully in any crust you care to use. Substitute at will.

Ultra-Creamy Pumpkin Pie Start to finish: 1 hour 10 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 8 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground dry ginger 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup maple syrup 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 3 eggs 15-ounce can pumpkin puree 1/2 cup heavy cream 1 prepared deep-dish chocolate crumb crust (or preferred crust) Heat the oven to 375 F.

the maple syrup, cream cheese, eggs, pumpkin and cream, then process until completely smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure even mixing. Transfer the pumpkin mixture to the prepared crust, smoothing the top. Place the pie on the heated baking pan in the oven (this promotes even cooking). Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the center of the pie jiggles only slightly. Cool for 30 minutes before slicing.

Daughter’s new lifestyle puts mother in an awkward position DEAR ABBY: My daughter, the mother of six children, has left her husband and is now involved in a three-way with a man and woman. She has not shielded her kids from these “new friends,” as she calls them. Because I won’t let her “friends” come along, she refuses to visit me. I love my daughter, but I consider this relationship to be sick, and I hate that she’s exposing her children to these people. Am I wrong to tell her to leave her bedroom activity out of the picture and visit me for just a day without them? We were always very close, but no more. — DISTRESSED MIDWESTERN GRANNY DEAR DISTRESSED: I’m sure you love your daughter, but sometimes the way we phrase things can get in the way of the message we are trying to convey. Perhaps if you invited her to visit “because you love her and would like to spend some motherdaughter time with her,” it would be perceived as less judgmental and more welcoming. She may be reluctant to spend time alone with you because she knows it will result in a lecture from you about her lifestyle. Remember, she’s an adult woman and can make decisions about her sex life for herself. While you and I may think it’s unwise for her to expose her children to this triad,

that message might be more appropriate coming from THEIR father, rather than HER mother. DEAR ABBY: For the past few months I have been dating a man I’ll call “Barry.” This is my first relationship in five years and we get along well. When we first met, I was physically attracted to Barry Abigail Van Buren for many reasons, but in particular because he had a gorgeous beard. A beard is kind of important for me. Some women like tall men, others like long hair. I’m a “beard woman.” The problem is, Barry has told me I ogle any beard I see (not true). And he now gets annoyed if I look at or compliment HIS beard. A few days ago, he shaved it off. I care about Barry, but I’m not as attracted to him when he’s clean-shaven. I think he did it as an act of defiance. How can I get him to understand that I don’t ogle every beard I see, and convince him to keep his whiskers without hurting his ego?

on a far-out idea. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH In the first part of the day, you could be having several key conversations in a meeting. A friend or loved one might be involved somewhat. Be careful, as you won’t want to cause a problem here. Tonight: Choose a favorite stressbuster. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You might want to rethink a decision involving an older relative or someone you must answer to. What felt right previously might not hold true any longer. A misunderstanding could be brewing if you are not careful. Tonight: Where the crowds are. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Reach out to someone at a distance. Confusion is likely to surround your words, and what you say might not mean the same thing to someone else as it does to you. By midday, an older person or an associate could be asking a lot from you. Tonight: A late-night appearance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You might want to figure the best solution for you and a partner this morning. Though the topic could be finances, the issue will have a lot to do with the balance of power between you. A suggestion made later in the day is likely to work. Tonight: Where there is great music. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You will feel as if you’re on top of a problem, but a statement will let you know otherwise. You could be in the position of having to renegotiate an agreement. Though you might be snippy at first, a resolution will emerge with ease. Tonight: With a favorite person. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

— FUZZ-LOVING IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR FUZZ-LOVING: Barry may have shaved the beard as “an act of defiance” — or not. He may have done it because it was uncomfortably hot or itchy, and he prefers being clean-shaven. My advice is to ask him — in a non-hostile way — why he got rid of it. Many people think that the person BEHIND a beard is what’s most important. However, if you’re not one of them, because he’s no longer willing to wear one, you may have to look elsewhere for a furry friend. DEAR ABBY: I am at a loss about what to tell certain friends and family members about my job. I work in the adult industry to put myself through college, and I’m having a hard time finding a lie I can stick to. While I am not ashamed of what I do, I certainly can’t tell my grandfather. This puts me in the awkward predicament of having to be dishonest with someone I love. Do you have any advice? — LIVING A DOUBLE LIFE DEAR LIVING: Yes. Because lying to your friends and relatives makes you uncomfortable, consider some other way to pay for your education.

Hints from Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars A baby born today has a Sun in Scorpio and a Moon in Aries if born before 4:38 p.m. (PDT). Afterward, the Moon will be in Taurus. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014: This year you go back and forth between being very assertive and being extremely docile. This polarity could make many people around you a little crazy; they never know what you are going to do! If you are single, you are more likely to meet a person of significance in the second half of your birthday year. This person might appear to be your opposite in many ways. Both of you seem to be faced with the same issues, but you’ll have different solutions. If you are attached, your significant other might need to be more flexible with you than in the past, and vice versa. TAURUS often challenges you — not with words, but by how he or she lives life. 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 Use the morning to move a heartfelt project forward. You also might want to squeeze in a little shopping, as you seem to be in tune with what would make another person smile. For some of you, it could involve buying your first item for the holidays. Tonight: Meet up with a friend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You could feel off until midafternoon, when you suddenly might perk up. A call to or from a very special friend will energize you. Before you know it, you’ll make plans that please both of you. Confirm where you are going to meet. Tonight: Act

B-7

HHH You might have to do more than your fair share with a project or planned get-together. You could become a bit sarcastic if you feel as if someone else involved is not willing to take on more responsibility. Defer to others. Do nothing, and see what happens. Tonight: Be responsive. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH A loved one might demand more of your time. Somehow, you will make it your pleasure to indulge this person. Pressure revolving around an important meeting or get-together could be building. Make it OK to have your schedule rearranged. Tonight: Know when to call it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You are very conscious of what must be done on the homefront. A family member might need to have a long-overdue conversation. Have it, as you can’t avoid it much longer. Your imagination will produce an interesting solution and/or idea. Tonight: Let the good times roll. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Make an important call. You might have to deal with a situation that forces you to take on more responsibility. Many different ideas coming in from different people could confuse you. Money will be involved in a decision regarding your domestic life. Tonight: Happily at home. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Keep your thoughts to yourself, unless your perspective will help resolve a problem. The other party involved could be confused about where you seem to be coming from. Reach out to someone who knows a lot about the subject in question. Tonight: Relax with a loved one.

Biscuits from heaven Dear Readers: With the holidays coming up, many will be going home for Thanksgiving. Who can resist homebaked goods and the smell of something yummy when you walk in the door that says “Welcome home”? So many keep asking about the Heloise Angel Biscuit recipe that my mother, the original Heloise, printed more than four decades ago. And yes, they are just as soft as little angels. So here is my family recipe just for you. This dough can be made up to three days in advance and stored in the refrigerator in a covered bowl. Gather the following ingredients: 1 package dry yeast 1/4 cup warm water 2 1/2 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1/8 cup sugar 1/2 cup shortening 1 cup buttermilk Dissolve the yeast in warm water and set aside. Place all the dry ingredients (in the above order) in a bowl and mix. The shortening should be cut in, similar to when making pie crust. Stir in the buttermilk and the yeast mixture. Mix well and refrigerate in a covered bowl. Take the dough out when ready to make biscuits. Knead it LIGHTLY on a floured counter or board. Roll out the dough gently and cut into shape. I use a small juice glass to “cut” out just the right-size biscuit. Place the biscuits in a greased pan and allow to rise slightly. Bake in a 400 F oven for 12-15 minutes. Enjoy! — Heloise P.S.: Make a double batch, because they will just “float” away, they are so light.

SUDOKU

By Tom Wilson

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.

Toys for Tots is a signature program of the U.S. Marine Corp and underscores the commitment of the men and women of the United States Marines to care for and protect the future of America. The program to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Holiday gifts to less fortunate children in the local community was brought to the Peninsula six years ago by retired Staff Sgt. Boyd Jorgensen of Lynden Transport and Johna Beech of the Kenai Chamber of Commerce. A few years later Jorgensen was transferred and U.S. Marine recruiter Staff Sgt. Joshua Rehm stepped up to keep the program growing. When Rehm was transferred to Hawaii earlier this year his replacement Sgt. Jonathon Denton eagerly took on this year’s Toys for Tots campaign along with Johna Beech. Five years ago Beech and

Jorgensen brought the idea of bringing Marines in a Humvee under fury fire at a hockey game down from Anchorage and the event has become a Brown Bear sensation at the Soldotna Sports Complex for the last five years. “The Toy Toss raises funds for our toy buy, which is to supplement the age groups that we typically do not receive toys for ages 12-17. This year was our best year yet bringing in a record amount of $1,380 which will all be spent locally for toys distributed in partnership with the Salvation Army to help local families,” said Beech. Sgt. Denton drove the Humvee for two laps around the rink this year accompanied by Lance Corporal Cat Bras’ son Benjamin in the Humvee as Lance Corporal Melvin took the friendly fury fire from the turret of the Humvee. Those who were fortunate to launch their toy and hit the vehicle were randomly drawn by Melvin for the lucky winners of prizes. The Toys for Tots local pro-

Hauntingly Happy Halloweener’s hit the Tsalteshi Trails on “Spook Night” The third annual Tsalteshi Spook Night didn’t have to worry about umbrellas and rain gear this year as Sunday, October 26th was a picture perfect autumn afternoon with just enough chill in the air to keep zombie runners and their costume wearing pets happy. Nearly 300 costumed trick or treaters tuned out and were able to freely walk, fly or magic carpet ride around the trails where a dozen or more booths with costumed volunteers were nestled among the forest with sweet treats for all the ballerinas, ghosts and goblins. The candy collecting event was accompanied this year by a 5K Zombie run with Jordan Theisen finishing just a second ahead of John-Mark Pothast in a grueling sprint to the finish line.

ana Boonstra and Addison Gibson. The Tsalteshi Spook Night was the idea of board member Carly Reimer, “The idea was to get the kids off the streets but outdoors and on the trails into nature without the concerns of knocking on doors,” said Reimer. The event raised nearly $3,000 to support activities and the Tsalteshi Trail system. “November we’ll start our youth ski registration program with our first day of lessons will be in mid-January. We take kids ages 6 to 12 and have lessons two time a week and every other Saturday during the winter season where we teach both classic and skate skiing on the trails,” said Reimer. Crawford added that on November 7th Tsalteshi will have their winter kick-off, “It’s going to be a back coun-

try film festival and will be an inspiring way to get motivated to spend a lot of time in the great Alaskan outdoors this winter. It’ll be held at the Kenai Visitors Center and you can pre-register on line at tsalteshi. org,” he said. According to Crawford the trails will be expanding their lighting this year, “There will be way more lights on the Wolf, Raven and Beaver trails this year so it’ll be a great season out here.” To become a member of the Tsalteshi Trails and be eligible for a myriad of discounts throughout the year and for complete list of Zombie run winners go to tsalteshi.org.

Entrepreneur extraordinaire and creator of heirloom recipe spirits Felicia Keith-Jones is ready to realize her dream of opening a tasting room at her High Mark Distillery in Sterling. “Just one last hurdle and simple change of a bond title and we will be ready to go thanks to the help of our legislative delegation,” said Felicia in an interview with the Dispatch. High Mark’s popular libations are produced at the distillery in Sterling and distributed by Southern Wine & Spirits to 209 locations

throughout Alaska. Jones transitioned from an educator to developing an Alaskan process for producing bio-diesel for tankers and when that project was ended she was able to apply what she had learned to distilling, “My interest was to create spirits in the old school manner utilizing modern technology. So I went to study in the old countries and had the phenomenal opportunity to go to Adara Ireland and study throughout that country and time in the laboratories of Jameson and Bush Mills.

Since then we have created four unique handcrafted spirits from heirloom recipes,” she explained. The most popular High Mark product currently is the Nickel Back Apple Jack says Felicia, “It’s a traditional Scottish recipe and my family has had it for as close as we can tell 118 years and I am the first American relative that has ever produced it and we do not tweak it is the original old country recipe which of-

fers a hardy, robust liquid of phenomenal flavor.” The other High Mark signature spirit according to Jones is High Mark Alaskan Vodka made of 100% Spring White Wheat. “We grow our own white wheat on a 10 acre plot in Spokane, WA. Our harvest came in at just under 4,000 bushels this year. Our Vodka is just twice distilled for the delicious wheat flavor to retain a presence and then triple filtered for purity. We are one of five distilleries

in the U.S. that filter through ground coconut shells brought over from the Big Island in Hawaii. This imparts a mellow smoothness to the finish our vodka that can’t be duplicated. I am confident that our tasting room will be open by or shortly after the Dispatch hits the street. I am so excited to have folks come out and visit

and taste our latest creation Blue Cobbler Shine which is already getting rave revues.” High Mark Distillery is also proud of their Blind Cat Moonshine made the old school way from traditional corn mash. Learn more at highmarkdistillery.com or phone the office at 907-260-3399.

The first Kenai Central High School (KCHS) Dig Pink Rally held Tuesday, October 28th was an overwhelming success according to KCHS Volleyball Booster vice president Pako Whannell. “The purpose of the rally was to promote breast health education as well as raise funds to help eradicate the disease through finding a cure,” said Whannell, who recently returned from a youth volleyball exchange to Japan. “We were totally amazed the Dig Pink Rally raised approximately $5,500.00 from our Silent Auction, Balloon Pop, Bake Sale, and Dig Pink T-shirt sales. We were pleasantly surprised at such a fantastic turnout of community support in donations, bidding, and in attendance of our young female athletes of

Kenai and Nikiski. It was great to see both teams/towns come together for a common goal, a common cause for the benefit of all our young women. We are planning on continuing this tradition next volleyball season,” she said. Everybody that wore pink to the games got in free and there were prizes for the craziest pit costumes. Local sponsors contributed 47 silent auction baskets that included pink Ugg boots from Sweeney’s, personal training sessions from COREfit Training, Oakley sunglasses donated by Kenai Vision Center. Stanley Chrysler donated 2 Auto Care Kits, a toolbox with tools from Home Depot and Sonicare toothbrush by Kenai River Dental. “Thanks to the Kenai High Super Fans at the

matches! It was great to see such awesome high school student support for the cause! A special thanks to the Dig Pink Committee, volunteer parents, volleyball players, and KCHS Volleyball Boosters for their time and dedication in making the DIG PINK RALLY a huge success! Thank you for everyone’s generosity and support of the local volleyball programs and Breast Cancer Awareness & Research. Having our young girls be aware of breast cancer and be actively involved to find a cure. This knowledge and participation they will carry on throughout their lives and future families. That’s the greatest success of all!”
