In the news Southwest man held on suspicion of attempted murder ANCHORAGE — A 30-year-old southwest Alaska man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and firing a gun twice at a household member. Alaska State Troopers on Sunday arrested Don White of Nunapitchuk on a boat on the Johnson River outside the village northwest of Bethel. He was held without bail at the Bethel jail and was not allowed to receive a phone call Monday morning. Troopers on Sunday took a call of an intoxicated man firing shots and threatening to kill household members. Bethel troopers flew to Nunapitchuk, and as they approached White’s house, spotted him in a boat. The pursued and boarded the boat. He’s charged with attempted murder, assault, weapons misconduct, boating under the influence of alcohol and possession of alcohol in a dry village.

4 seek victim status to review Carnival pollution settlement MIAMI — Four people who say they were harmed by pollution from Carnival Corp. cruise ships are seeking status as victims with rights to review a recent settlement. Three Alaskans and one Bahamian have asked the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to grant them status under the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act. A Miami federal judge earlier this month rejected their claim before approving a settlement between Carnival and the Justice Department that included a $20 million penalty. Carnival’s CEO admitted in court the world’s largest cruise line had violated probation terms from a 2016 criminal settlement over pollution that included a $40 million fine. The four people who filed Monday’s appeal say they should have the right to review and participate in this newest settlement, which they consider flawed. — Associated Press

Satanic invocation sparks online petition By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

An online petition to rid “Satanic invocations” at Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meetings has gathered more than 25,000 signatures. The petition comes before Iris Fontana — a member of the Satanic Temple and the prevailing plaintiff of a lawsuit against the Kenai Peninsula Borough regarding its invocation policy — is scheduled to offer an invocation at the beginning of Tuesday’s meeting. Carrie Henson — founder of the Last Fron-

tier Freethinkers, a local nonprofit educational organization promoting

“progressive philosophy of life without theism” — is urging the organization’s

membership to offer Fontana, also a member of the Freethinkers, support during her Tuesday invocation. “We’re trying to get members and supporters to be there to support her,” Henson said. Assembly member Willy Dunne said he first heard of the petition when a constituent emailed him June 2. Dunne said he asked Assembly President Wayne Ogle to request law enforcement presence at Tuesday’s meeting. Monday, he confirmed Soldotna police will be present at the meeting. The petition urges the

What to do with rhubarb? Rhubarb-Palooza to show how to get creative with the summer favorite By ViCTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

The start of summer always brings fresh rhubarb to the home gardens of many Alaskans. The perennial stalk grows wild all over the state, making it relatively easy to get hands on the tart, but versatile produce. Rhubarb can be harvested throughout the first half of summer, when desired, according to information packets from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension. To harvest simply pull the stalks out from the base, using a twisting motion. The leaves aren’t safe to eat, so cut those off and wash the stalks. Stalks can vary in length and width, but generally four stalks can yield about 2 cups of diced rhubarb. Freshly harvested rhubarb can be refrigerated for several days, but any

It is unclear who started the petition, but the petition is being hosted by Return to Order, a special campaign of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property — an organization for Catholic Americans concerned with “moral crisis.” “How could a public institution which is meant to uphold the common good allow a representative of Satanic principles?” the petition reads. “Are immorality, corruption, and vice See ONLINE, page A2

Cloudy, wet weather over the weekend allowed firefighters to make progress in slowing the growth of the 12,782acre Swan lake Fire near Sterling, according to a press release from the Alaska Division of Forestry. Monday afternoon winds were expected to test fire lines, and sporadic showers were not predicted to produce wetting rain, according to the release. The fire will transition to an incoming Type 2, bringing more personnel onto the incident management team. The team will continue strategizing as warmer, drier days are expected to continue, the release said. Fire lines near the community of Sterling were See FIRE, page A3

Former Arizona lawmaker gets 45 years in murder case By Alex McCarthy Juneau Empire

Mark De Simone, who was found guilty of murder in the 2016 shooting death of Duilio Antonio “Tony” Rosales, was sentenced Monday to serve 45 years in prison. On May 10, 2018, a Juneau jury found De Simone, who is currently 56, guilty of first-degree murder. Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip M. Pallenberg handed down the sentence in an emotional court hearing Monday as Rosales’ friends and family watched with tears in their eyes. Pallenberg’s full sentence was

Gonzalez said at the hearing and to media members afterward that she didn’t care much about what sentence De Simone received. “Even if he got 100 (years), my life is not going to change,” Gonzalez said. “Sixty-five, 45 years is nothing compared to the pain that I have every day.” De Simone did not speak during his two-and-a-halfweek trial in 2018 but spoke briefly at Monday’s sentencing hearing.

Court: Alaska sex offender registry violates rights FAIRBANKS (AP) — Alaska’s sex offender registry violates offenders’ due process rights because it provides no means for them to demonstrate that they are not a threat to public safety, the state Supreme Court ruled Friday. The court in a 3-2 decision ruled offenders must be given an opportunity to prove they are rehabilitated, the Fairbanks Daily NewsMiner reported.

The case involves a man convicted of aggravated sexual battery in 2000 in Virginia. He was required to register in Virginia as a sex offender. The man moved to Alaska in January 2003 and registered as a sex offender. The Department of Public Safety informed him he had to register each January and the man did so for 2004 and 2005. In 2005, the department

informed him had to register quarterly for life if he kept living in Alaska. The department noted that his Virginia conviction had the same elements as first-degree sexual assault in Alaska, which requires quarterly registration. The man ceased registering. In 2007, he was convicted of failure to register as a sex offender. The man sued in 2016, See COURT, page A3

sponsibility are mine and mine alone,” De Simone said. During the hearing Gonzalez asked repeatedly, as she did at De Simone’s arraignment, why De Simone pulled the trigger. “This has taken over my life,” Gonzalez said through tears. “I just want to end with this already. I don’t know how many years he’s going to get but that’s not going to bring my husband back.” De Simone nodded his head slightly as Gonzalez spoke but he did not respond. De Simone was a memSee 45, page A2

Anchorage airport may raise fees for pilots and businesses ANCHORAGE (AP) — Rates and fees at Anchorage’s city-owned airport may increase soon, officials said. Merrill Field airport plans to request that the city raise rates on leases, parking and airplane fuel paid by businesses and pilots, The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday. The 90-year-old facility also plans to charge for services previously

provided at no cost such as document preparation, said Ralph Gibbs, who became the airport manager in September 2018. The airport has spent more than it has made for about four years to complete federally subsidized improvement projects, while a savings account from a land exchange has been depleted, officials said.

what we expect our public officials to promote?” In October, the borough lost a lawsuit against plaintiffs represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska in a fight over its invocation policy, which allowed certain groups and individuals to offer an invocation at the beginning of each meeting. The plaintiffs, Lance Hunt, an atheist, Fontana and Elise Boyer, a member of the Jewish community in Homer, all applied to give invocations after the policy was established in 2016. All three were denied because they didn’t belong to official organizations with an established presence on the peninsula. They sued and the ACLU Alaska agreed to represent them. Anchorage Superior Court Judge Andrew Peterson ruled the invocation policy, passed in 2016, violated the Alaska Constitution’s establishment clause, which is a mandate banning government from establishing an official reli-

Simone and Rosales were alone on the deck of one of them on that Sunday evening. Rosales, a 34-year-old jeweler and Juneau resident, was sitting on a bench next to a table on the deck and had just taken off his boots, investigators testified. That’s when a Ruger .41 Magnum Blackhawk revolver fired twice, with both bullets hitting Rosales in the head just behind his right ear, forensic pathologists testified. During the trial, Assistant Public Defender Deborah Macaulay didn’t dispute that De Simone pulled the trigger. The main defense in the case was that De Simone could have fired twice accidentally, and two gun experts squared off in the final days of the trial and

debated whether that was possible. Jurors were not convinced that De Simone accidentally fired twice, and found him guilty. Just prior to handing down the sentence Monday, Pallenberg addressed the defense’s argument. “That theory still leaves a ‘why’ question unanswered,” Pallenberg said. “If the gun went off by accident, why was it pointed at the back of Mr. Rosales’ head at close range when it went off accidentally twice? That’s a mystery.” Pallenberg went on to say that there was no apparent motive in the case, and that the two men seemed to have no ill will toward one another, based on everything witnesses said during the trial. Pallenberg, who called for a

30-minute break in Monday’s hearing to think everything over before issuing his final decision, said the killing didn’t seem premeditated and hypothezised that the shooting was “bizarre impulsive act, motivated by who knows what.” Gonzalez said she hopes De Simone writes her a letter or eventually finds a way to explain to her what was going through his head that day. Pallenberg agreed, saying he hopes De Simone can explain himself eventually. “It’s obvious that the key question in this case is the question that Ms. Gonzalez asked right at the beginning and today, and probably every day in between,” Pallenberg said, and that’s the question, ‘Why?’”

gion or the favoring of one belief over another. Article 1, Section 4 of the constitution provides that “no law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion.” In November, the assembly voted against appealing the Superior Court decision and passed an updated invocation policy allowing more people the ability to give invocations at assembly meetings.

The Satanic Temple was founded in 2013, and according to their official website, the organization fights for secularism. The Temple’s co-founder, Lucien Greaves, says the Satanic Temple is a “nontheistic movement aligned with liberty, equality and rationalism.” The Temple’s mission “is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject

tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will.” Fontana will offer an invocation at the beginning of Tuesday’s assembly meeting, at the Kenai Peninsula Borough Betty J.

What others say

More than ever, Britain needs strong leadership “Never again,” said the Conservative

world, after Theresa May walked into the Tory leadership underprepared and unscrutinised three years ago. Next time, everyone insisted, candidates for the premiership, and their plans for office, should be put under the microscope. And yet here we are, in the week of the first ballot for choosing the next prime minister, and the most probing question being asked on TV and radio of the contenders is: what drugs did you take when you were younger? The unsurprising answer, like many people of their generation, is that, yes, most of them tried illegal substances at some point. It’s almost 30 years since Bill Clinton admitted smoking marijuana, 25 since Barack Obama confessed to taking cocaine, and 15 since David Cameron said politicians were entitled to a private past. It’s time to move on to the serious questions that face anyone who wants to be prime minister. Let’s start with the biggest: who has a plan to unblock the impasse over Brexit? Threatening a no-deal departure is hollow, because there isn’t a parliamentary majority for one and (thankfully) no realistic way to stop Parliament meeting to express that majority. Promising a renegotiation with the EU, and wishing away the Irish backstop, isn’t something anyone in the rest of Europe believes is credible. Passing a version of the existing deal on the table was something Mrs. May failed three times to achieve. Meanwhile none of the leading contenders dare raise the prospect of a referendum, let alone an election. If candidates pretend it is easy to achieve what the current administration has found impossible, then they should be challenged. Perhaps they can drive Brussels into submission; perhaps an Irish border commission involving the Republic might find a way through; perhaps a new leader will be able to reassemble a Tory majority. We need to see the evidence. To those who say they can deliver Brexit by October 31, we simply ask: how? To those who say they would be prepared to delay beyond that, we ask: how will that help? The very least the public deserve is that those who want to enter Number 10 in a few weeks’ time are grilled seriously on their Brexit plan. The same applies to the other policy pledges that are coming thick and fast. New ideas needed A leadership contest is a time for new ideas, and it’s right that — as the saying goes — in democracies we campaign in poetry and govern in prose. So we’re not asking for every detail of every policy. But some idea of how things will be paid for is necessary if the country is not to be further misled by those who govern it. Raising the tax threshold at which people pay 40 per cent beyond £50,000 is a solid Conservative idea that builds on what has already been achieved. Every modern society will want to invest in education but why have the Tories given up talking about the reform that means investment will be well spent? We want more housing but where are you going to build it? We’d all like to provide decent social care without raiding people’s homes and savings but the answer has eluded numerous governments. Using the “headroom” in the public finances to fund all these commitments, as the candidates suggest, is code for “we’ll borrow more”. There’s nothing intrinsically wrong with that, if you explain it means a bigger national debt than would otherwise exist, and then higher taxes and spending cuts in the future. Nor can candidates hide behind their “consciences” on social issues. Reducing the abortion limit is not solely a matter of personal belief when you’re a legislator whose beliefs could impose serious, health-threatening restrictions on millions of women. Let’s hear how you can morally justify that. And where is the

Borough should rethink land use rules V oices of the P eninsula L inda B ruce On June 10, my husband and I attended the Planning Commission meeting to specifically give and hear public testimony on the Beachcomber LLC gravel pit excavation application. In an article about the gravel pit controversy published by the Peninsula Clarion on Wednesday, June 5, it was reported that Emmitt Trimble, owner of Coastal Realty, manages Beachcomber LLC. As stated in the article, Beachcomber LLC is a company that’s been working for a year to excavate gravel on 27 acres of his property. The property totaling around 40 acres sits at the bottom of the natural amphitheater, 500 feet from the Anchor River and near five state campgrounds and three private campgrounds. The meeting was again hours of public testimony with the Planning Commission specifying that the public could not talk about information covered in previous meetings or in written letters/ comments. New people interested in this subject testified, as well as others who had not been able to attend previous meetings but wanted to provide new input, as well as those who have been dedicated to seeing this process through to finality and have homes or property adjoining or adjacent to the gravel pit and a huge stake in the approval or denial of this permit. Full disclosure demands that I tell the readers that my husband and I currently own three pieces of property totaling approximately 7-plus acres adjacent to and to the south behind the gravel pit. Again, as the paper so eloquently puts

it, “Trimble’s efforts to mine the gravel on his property is well within the law, if the permit is granted. But, balancing the rights of the property owners and neighbors in unzoned areas can be tricky.” It is sufficient to say that the existing borough code to grant permits for gravel pits is woefully inadequate. The code is currently being rewritten, however, if the rumors swirling around are true, even with the new rewrites, it will still be inadequate. My objection to the gravel pit in this particular spot is not complicated. It is simply that when you have what is now a large, developed, residential area, with valuable pieces of property in that area primed or targeted as single-family or multifamily development, an active gravel pit excavation and possible rock crushing is not compatible and doesn’t belong. I realize it’s an unzoned area, however, that does not preclude the neighborhood and homeowners from having protections in place to preserve their property values, preserve their peace and quiet, preserve their “legacy” — to borrow a word from Mr. Trimble. The Planning Commission has a much bigger job and decision here than whether to approve or deny this application. They need to balance the greater good, that being the preservation of property and neighborhoods, the preservation of parks, campgrounds, recreational areas surrounding a pristine river as well as the inlet, the preservation of an already degraded and inadequate road, which, if the information provided on June 10 is accurate, will not be fixed, against the long-term destruction of land (whether or not the plan is to eventually redevelop the land), the damage to all the surrounding habitat, the possible damage/contamination to the surrounding wells (no one can guarantee this won’t happen), and ultimately the destruction of Anchor Point due to upheaval, disappointment, grief, anger, broken

trust, broken promises, dissatisfaction, dissension — basically all the emotions that create a breakdown in community. While none of this is in the code, this really is the crux of the decision, not the fact that Mr. Trimble has or has not met the code. We had a personal relationship with Mr. Trimble and his wife Mary that goes back many years. We bought our original nearly 12 acres (four pieces) of land from or through Coastal Realty. We have sold one piece of the four through Coastal Realty and up until the gravel pit controversy, had the other three pieces for sale through Coastal Realty. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not against gravel pits. I realize gravel for projects makes the world go round in this area of Alaska; I realize they provide jobs and pump money into the economy. I’m not minimizing that value. I am, however, seriously questioning purchasing property in an established housing area and developing a gravel pit in that same area when you can buy large tracts of property all over the peninsula, away from anyone, and have a pit. It’s unfortunate that it’s come down to our Borough Planning Commission to make this difficult, unique and huge decision. Because this is no longer the Wild West, we need to drastically improve and tighten up the rules and regulations on land use in the borough. At the end of the day, I’m morbidly sad for everyone involved because this is a lose-lose no matter how you slice it.

News and Politics

High court lets Virginia voting go ahead under redrawn map WASHINGTON — Virginians will elect members of the House of Delegates this year using a map seen as favorable to Democrats as a result of a ruling Monday by the U.S. Supreme Court. The political boundaries are important because Republicans currently control the House by a slim majority. Only four states are having legislative elections this year. Virginia is the only one where Democrats have a chance of flipping control of the House and Senate. The high court’s 5-4 decision was perhaps telegraphed by the fact that the justices previously allowed election planning to go forward with the new map. Virginia held its primary last week, and the November general election will be the last time the state uses this map because legislative districts will need to be redrawn to account for results from the 2020 census. The justices let stand a lower court decision putting the new map in place, saying the Republican-controlled state

House did not have a right to represent the state’s interests in an appeal to the Supreme Court. The state could have decided to bring the case but did not, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote. “One House of its bicameral legislature cannot alone continue the litigation against the will of its partners in the legislative process,” she wrote. The four justices joining her were Clarence Thomas, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Neil Gorsuch, a lineup that included conservatives and liberals. Dissenting were Chief Justice John Roberts and justices Samuel Alito, Stephen Breyer and Brett Kavanaugh. The case stemmed from a map drawn by Republican lawmakers in 2011, after the last census, and used in the four elections since. Democratic voters sued in 2014, accusing Republicans of packing black voters into certain districts to make surrounding ones whiter and more Republican. A lower court ruled 2-1 last year that the previous map drawn by lawmakers improperly factored race into drawing 11 of the 100 House districts. After law-

makers failed to reach an agreement on a redistricting plan, the lower court chose a new map from a series of proposals submitted by a special master. Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, called the ruling a “big win for democracy in Virginia.” “It’s unfortunate that House Republicans wasted millions of taxpayer dollars and months of litigation in a futile effort to protect racially gerrymandered districts,” he said in a statement. The lawsuit challenging the original House lines was backed by the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, led by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. The group targets elections for governors and state legislators, court cases or ballot initiative to give Democrats more control during the next round of congressional redistricting after the 2020 Census. “With a new, fair map in place, all Virginians will now — finally — have the opportunity this fall to elect a House of Delegates that actually represents the will of the people,” Holder said in a statement.

debate about the disruption coming from technology? How do we harness all the exciting possibilities of artificial intelligence, genomics and robotics while mitigating the potential harm? We’ve heard precious little.

What we’ve had instead is more a replay of the Tory best hits from circa 1990. Britain faces the greatest political crisis for a generation. The foundations of our economic prosperity and security are threatened. We face profound

change in our society. It’s time the questions to our leaders matched the seriousness of the task that lies ahead of them.

Nation Oregon tackles climate change with cap-and-trade proposal By SARAH ZIMMERMAN Associated Press

SALEM, Ore. — Oregon is on the precipice of becoming the second state after California to adopt a cap-and-trade program, a market-based approach to lowering the greenhouse gas emissions behind global warming. Supporters call it the United States’ most progressive climate policy, saying it not only cuts emissions but invests in transitioning the state economy and infrastructure to better prepare for more intense weather events as climate change worsens. “We have an opportunity to invest a substantial amount into low-income communities off the backs of the 100 or so major polluters that caused this problem,” said Shilpa Joshi, with the lobbying group Renew Oregon. Joshi has spent years working with dozens of organizations around the state to help shape the final legislation. Cap and trade has been a top priority this year for Oregon’s majority Democrats, and Gov. Kate Brown has said she would sign the measure, noting in a statement that “Oregon can be the log that breaks the jam nationally” on climate policy. Though the program’s approval is shaping up to be a sure bet, a decade’s worth of baggage from California’s cap-and-trade program has fractured support for the policy among environmental groups.

Some question whether Oregon can truly meet its lofty emission goals and keep its promise to prioritize investments in lowincome communities and Native American tribes’ ability to prepare for a changing climate. The division underscores a larger fight on the left over how to best tackle climate change, which scientists warn poses a global existential threat. Some progressives have balked at any solutions less than those outlined in the Green New Deal, a sweeping climate platform from U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez that calls for the decarbonization of nearly every industry. “Strong climate policy requires steep regulations on business and a total transformation of our current infrastructure,” said Shawn Fleek with OPAL Environmental Justice, one of the main organizations on the left against the

bill. “Cap and trade does none of that. Just like in California, Oregon’s bill has instead turned into a Frankenstein’s monster in handouts to industry.” Under a cap-and-trade program, the state puts an overall limit on emissions and auctions off pollution permits or “allowances” for each ton of carbon industries plan to emit. Only the largest polluters are targeted, and the idea is that as the emissions limit becomes stricter over time, it will be in industries’ financial interest to switch to green technology. Oregon’s program would begin in 2021, and the state wants to reduce emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. Most of the money raised — estimated to total $550 million in the first year — would be used to fund a sweeping progressive platform that encourages further emission cuts and prioritizes investments

in low-income and tribal communities’ ability to respond to climate change. “We’re seeing the effects of climate really hammer people who can least afford it,” said Rep. Karin Power, a Democrat from Milwaukie and one of two key lawmakers behind the bill. The proposal also contains a $10 million investment to protect workers adversely affected by climate change policy, as some in transportation or manufacturing sector could face layoffs. The legislation provides unemployment benefits and pathways to clean energy jobs that, under the law, must provide competitive wages and benefits. It’s provisions like these that make the changes some of the country’s most progressive, Joshi said. “We are showing other states that it’s not an impossible dream to hold big polluters accountable and use the funds to invest in clean energy and in our most vulnerable communities,” she said. Detractors on the left note Oregon’s program, like California’s, offers concessions to nearly every industry to dampen the potential financial impact. For the program’s first few years, the state will cover a majority of pollution allowances for some industries, including natural gas and utilities companies. The fossil fuel industry is essentially the only one on the hook for paying the full price.

US restores some aid but vows no more without migrant action By MATTHEW LEE AP Diplomatic Writer

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration said Monday it is easing previously announced cuts in hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the Central American nations of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala but will not allow new funding until those countries do more to reduce migrant flows to the United States. The State Department said that after a review of more than $615 million in assistance that President Donald Trump ordered in March to be cut entirely, it would go ahead with $432 million in projects and grants that had been previously approved. The remaining amount will be held in escrow pending consultations with Congress, it said. That $432 million, which comes from the 2017 budget, is being spent on health, education and poverty alleviation programs as well as anti-crime efforts that many believe

help reduce migrant outflows from the impoverished Northern Triangle region. About $370 million in money from the 2018 budget will not be spent and instead will be moved to other projects, the State Department said. “Previously awarded grants and contracts will continue with current funding,” department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said. She added that assistance “to help the Northern Triangle governments take actions that will protect the U.S. border and counter transnational organized crime will also continue.” U.S. officials said the review looked at roughly 700 projects funded with fiscal 2017 money by the United States in the three countries and concluded that a significant number were too far advanced to end them. Trump’s decision in March to cut all direct aid to El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala over the migration issue elicited harsh criticism from Congress where lawmakers from both parties said the assis-

tance was key to helping improve conditions in the three countries that have contributed to the people leaving. Lawmakers are also expected to object to the latest announcement, which comes as Trump has ratcheted up pressure on Mexico and its southern neighbors to drastically reduce the numbers of migrants heading to the U.S. Ortagus told reporters the administration was leaving the door open to future funding but would

Masked gunman killed after shootout at courthouse By JAKE BLEIBERG and JAMIE STENGLE Associated Press

DALLAS — A masked gunman opened fire Monday on a federal courthouse in downtown Dallas before being fatally shot in an exchange of gunfire with federal officers, witnesses and authorities said. Brian Isaack Clyde, 22, was pronounced dead at a hospital following the shooting outside the Earle Cabell Federal Building. Authorities offered no hint of his motive, but FBI agent Matthew DeSarno said there was nothing to indicate the presence of any other shooters or threats to the city. Clyde opened fire about 8:40 a.m., and law enforcement immediately responded, including three officers from the Fed-

eral Protective Service who were stationed at the building. A bomb squad later examined a vehicle associated with the gunman as a precaution and performed controlled explosions, authorities said. Two loud blasts could be heard. The Dallas Morning News reported that one of its photographers, Tom Fox, was outside the building and witnessed the shooter opening fire. Fox said the masked man parked at a street corner, then ran and began shooting at the courthouse. The bullets shattered the glass panes in a revolving door. An image of the shooter captured by Fox showed the man wearing a balaclava and a heavy vest and carrying a rifle. Several magazines could be seen on his belt. Another photograph

from Fox showed authorities tending to a shirtless man lying on the ground in a parking lot outside the building. Police closed off several blocks around the federal building. A woman who answered the phone at a number listed for one of Clyde’s relative declined to comment. Chad Cline, 46, who lives near the courthouse, told The Associated Press that a message was broadcast throughout his building shortly before 9 a.m. announcing that there was an active shooter in the area and that residents should stay inside. Less than half an hour later, another message said there was a potential bomb threat and that residents needed to leave. He, his wife and their two dogs went to a coffee shop.

first have to see progress on migration. “We will not provide new funds for programs in those countries until we are satisfied that the Northern Triangle governments are taking concrete actions to reduce the number of migrants coming to the U.S. border, she said. “This is consistent with the president’s direction and with the recognition that it is critical that there be sufficient political will in these countries to address the problem at its source.”

Around the Nation Supreme Court upholds rule allowing state, federal charges WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is upholding a constitutional rule that allows state and federal governments to prosecute someone for the same crime, a closely watched case because of its potential implications for people prosecuted in the Russia investigation. The court’s 7-2 decision Monday preserves a long-standing rule that provides an exception to the Constitution’s ban on trying someone twice for the same offense. Ruling for the defendant in this case might have made it harder for states to pursue criminal charges against defendants in the Russia investigation in the event they are pardoned by President Donald Trump. The court ruled against federal prison inmate Terance Gamble. He was prosecuted by Alabama and the federal government for having a gun after an earlier conviction for robbery. Justice Samuel Alito wrote in his majority opinion that 170 years of precedent supports the idea that “a state may prosecute a defendant under state law even if the federal government has prosecuted him for the same conduct under a federal statute.” New York authorities already have indicted Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman. Manafort has been sentenced to more than 7 years on federal conspiracy and fraud convictions. He also has been charged with mortgage fraud and other crimes in New York. Trump could pardon him for his federal convictions, but Manafort still would have to answer to the state charges by the Manhattan district attorney’s office. The president’s pardon power doesn’t extend to state charges. Had the justices ruled the other way, it might have called into question the ability to prosecute Manafort on the state level. The case decided Monday drew the court’s attention after Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas wrote in 2016 that the exception to protection from double jeopardy should be reconsidered. But during arguments in December, several justices worried about the practical effects of ruling for Gamble. Justice Stephen Breyer pointed to federal prosecutions for crimes of racial violence and domestic violence against Native American women that could be imperiled if Gamble prevailed. Ginsburg dissented from Monday’s ruling, which she called “adherence to that misguided doctrine.” In a separate dissent, Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote, “A free society does not allow its government to try the same individual for the same crime until it’s happy with the result.” In the end, Thomas parted ways with Ginsburg. He noted in a 17-page opinion that “the historical record does not bear out my initial skepticism.” Thomas spent the bulk of his opinion making the case for less fidelity to Supreme Court precedents. “When faced with a demonstrably erroneous precedent, my rule is simple: We should not follow it,” wrote the justice who is the most likely to encourage his colleagues to overrule earlier high court decisions.

Harvard pulls Parkland grad’s admission over racist comments BOSTON — A Parkland school shooting survivor says Harvard University revoked his acceptance over racist comments he made in a shared Google Doc and in text messages about two years ago. Kyle Kashuv says the Ivy League school asked him in May to explain the comments he made months before the February 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. He apologized for his private comments that had surfaced online. He says he told Harvard officials the comments were “idiotic and hurtful” but don’t represent who he is now. In a June 3 letter that Kashuv shared online Monday, Harvard said it had rescinded his admission because of his comments. A spokeswoman says the school does not comment on admissions decisions. Kashuv has advocated for gun rights since a former Parkland student killed 17 people. — The Associated Press

Tenx Systems, LLC d/b/a ResiDex Software (“ResiDex”) specializes in providing software for assisted living homes, group homes, and organizations providing care for the elderly or disabled, including Happy Valley Assisted Living. ResiDex recently identified and addressed a security incident that may have involved personal information and/or protected health information of the current, former or prospective residents and/or staff members of Happy Valley Assisted Living. ResiDex began providing notice on June 7, 2019 to all individuals potentially impacted by this incident. This notice describes the incident, outlines measures that ResiDex has taken in response, and advises potentially impacted individuals on steps that they may take to further protect their information. This notice constitutes substituted service for those clients whom ResiDex does not have sufficient contact information to make individual notice as required under applicable law. On April 9, 2019, ResiDex became aware of a data security incident, including ransomware, which impacted our server infrastructure and took our systems offline. ResiDex immediately undertook efforts to restore its servers to a new hosting provider. Backups and other information maintained by ResiDex were used to enable near seamless restoration of security and services on the same day. Additionally, ResiDex took affirmative steps to further safeguard its software systems. ResiDex simultaneously retained a forensic investigation firm to determine the nature of the security compromise and identify any individuals whose personal information and/or protected health information may have been compromised. The forensic investigation was unable to identify any specific individuals whose personal information and/or protected health information may have been compromised due to the complexity of the event and efforts undertaken by the perpetrators to conceal their actions. The investigation did determine that first access to ResiDex’s systems occurred on approximately April 2, 2019, with the ransomware launched on April 9, 2019. The data security incident may have resulted in unauthorized access to protected health information, including medical records that existed on ResiDex’s software as of April 9, 2019, and/or personal information including names and social security numbers. Please note that it is entirely possible that any one individual who is/was a current, former or prospective resident or staff member of Happy Valley Assisted Living did not have their personal information and/or protected health information compromised as a result of the incident. Nonetheless, notification has been provided to all potentially impacted individuals in an abundance of caution. Individuals who have received a notification or who believe that they may have potentially been impacted by this incident are invited to contact (877) 347-0184 between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday. ResiDex and Happy Valley Assisted Living understand the importance of protecting the protected health information and personal information maintained on its systems and deeply regrets any concern that this may have caused the potentially impacted individuals.

Twins top Palmer, move to .500 in league Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The American Legion Post 20 Twins returned to .500 in the league with a 4-2 victory over host Palmer on Sunday. That victory capped a weekend in which the Twins also split with Wasilla, which won the high school state championship this season and is 6-0 in the league and 8-1 overall so far this summer. Thw Twins move to 2-2 in the league and 3-4 overall, while Palmer falls to 3-3 and 3-4. Post

20 is tied for fourth in the American Division, while Palmer sits in third. “It’s coming together,” Twins coach Robb Quelland said. “We’ve been literally on the field as a team exactly one week, and it takes time to move the pieces around and find what’s working.” One thing working right now is the pitching. The Twins gave up just five runs in the doubleheader against Wasilla and the hurlers shined again Sunday. Mose Hayes got the win, working five innings and giving up just

one hit and two runs while walking three and striking out three. Seth Adkins pitched the final two innings, giving up a hit and no runs while walking none and striking out two. “I’m confident that we have five solid pitchers right now and three more that are working to get to that level,” Quelland said. The Twins, who led 3-1 after three innings, have not been hitting the cover off the ball, but have been finding ways to score runs. Post 20 had five hits Sunday — two from Harrison Metz and one

apiece from David Michael, Mose Hayes and Seth Adkins. But the Twins also found a way to walk eight times. “It’s just our inexperience showing,” Quelland said of the low hit total. “We went from guys throwing in the mid-80s yesterday to the mid-60s today. “It’s a pitching dominant league and we’ve taught them that they have to be selective.” Brayden Methven took the loss for Palmer, going 3 1-3 innings and giving up three hits and three runs — one earned — while walk-

ing five and striking out four. Quelland also continues to be pleased with the defense, which committed two errors Sunday with players constantly moving positions. “We’re definitely not the team where everybody plays the same position every game,” Quelland said. “One of our players played four positions in one game.” The Twins are at home for the weekend, playing a noon doubleheader with Service on Saturday and a noon doubleheader with Dimond on Sunday.

Becher returns to Oilers 2016 Soldotna graduate recovers from surgery By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

Whether it was as a Little Leaguer looking for inspiration or a junior college player looking for the knowledge and experience of some of college baseball’s best talent, the Peninsula Oilers have come through for Soldotna’s Joey Becher time and time again. Now this summer, the 2016 Soldotna High School graduate is looking to the organization again, this time to help mold him into a pitcher that can get outs for Division II Point Loma Nazarene University, which is where Becher will transfer in the fall. The deep connection Becher, the son of Kathy Becher and Sam Brow of Soldotna, has to the Oilers was apparent near the end of a Sunday interview on Little League Day at Coral Seymour Memorial Park. “Look at all those kids down there with gloves,” Becher said as he sat in the bleachers and reminisced about breaking free from Little League practice and attending Oilers games with his childhood friends. “I used to be just like that. I still have a picture here with Kenny Griffin when I was 13.” Becher eventually grew into a 6-foot-4, 180-pound pitcher as a senior at Soldotna in 2016. He threw two no-hitters that season. Then in the summer for the Post 20 Twins, he

threw another no-hitter and helped lead the Twins to an American Legion state title. “I’m never amazed by what Joey Becher is capable of,” said Robb Quelland, who coached Becher at SoHi and with the Twins. “He’s always been that workhorse. When he played for the Twins and SoHi baseball, he was always the guy.” But Becher quickly learned there is a big baseball world out there beyond SoHi and the Twins when he pitched 18 innings for Treasure Valley Community College in Oregon in 2017. Thirsting for more exposure to the college game’s best, Becher signed up for the Oilers in the summer of 2017. He made an instant connection with Kyle Brown, who is now the head coach for the Oilers but then was the pitching coach for head coach Jim Dietz. Becher, now 21, was the youngest player on the team at 19 and was a junior college pitcher going toe-to-toe with Division I and II batters. He still went 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA, walking 13 and striking out 13, in 28 innings. How did he do it? “Coaching. 100 percent,” Becher said. “I attribute a lot of the success I had to Kyle Brown.” From the minute Becher got off the plane, he said Brown was talking to him about pitching on an advanced, professional level that Becher had

never experienced. A simple game of catch, bullpen sessions, grips on the baseball and the mentality of pitching all progressed to a new level. But then came a major test. Becher was at Mulcahy Stadium pitching against the Anchorage Glacier Pilots. His bullpen went fine, but during the game he started losing velocity rapidly. After one pitch, using hand signals, Brown asked Becher if he had thrown a changeup. When Becher signaled fastball, Brown quickly pulled Becher out of fear of what Becher soon learned — the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow had spider-webbed, meaning the pitcher would need surgery. On Feb. 6, 2018, Becher was able to have Tommy John light surgery, meaning the ligament was wrapped in a type of suture that allowed it to heal instead of having to be replaced. That cut Becher’s rehab time to 12 months. Becher also had made the decision to transfer to Southwestern College in Chula Vista, California, where Brown is the pitching coach. “If I would have been rehabbing here, in the winter and the darkness, I don’t know if I would have wanted to keep playing,” Becher said. “Having the sunshine and the support from people at school was so helpful.” Becher also used the time to get a See BACK, page A8

Peninsula Oilers shortstop Skyler Messinger is a poster boy for just how quickly things can change for a player and his team in baseball. Friday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai, Messinger went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts and committed a crucial error as the Oilers struck out 10 times as a team and made four crucial errors in a humbling 9-1 loss to the Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks. The defeat dropped Peninsula to 2-6 in the Alaska Baseball League and also meant the Oilers had ceded the first three games of a home-opening, six-game set against the Chinooks.

“Every loss was getting worse and worse,” Oilers head coach Kyle Brown said. Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader, the Oilers entered the fifth trailing 5-2 but scored five runs in the fifth and five runs in the sixthto take a 12-7 victory. The big blow was a grand slam by Calvin Farris. “Baseball is that way sometimes,” Chinooks head coach Jon Groth said. “Their bats woke up.” But Messinger was still struggling, finishing 0 for 3 in Saturday’s first game. In Saturday’s second game, he grounded out his first time up before coming to the plate in the third with the bases loaded and two outs. Three

runs were already in and the game was tied at 4. Messinger flew out, but a balk was called on the play, scoring Jaden Fein and giving Messinger another chance. This time he doubled to the wall to put the Oilers up 7-4 in an eventual 8-6 win. Brown said the moment was cathartic for Messinger and the whole team. “For me, this was when you shake a Coke bottle up and it builds and builds until finally the top pops off,” Brown said. Sunday in front of a thick Father’s Day crowd, Messinger and the Oilers kept bubbling. The Kansas player went 3 for 3 with an RBI and a run as See OILERS, page A8

Ostrander nabs MW hardware Staff report Peninsula Clarion

Allie Ostrander, a 2015 graduate of Kenai Central, was named the 2019 Mountain West Women’s Outdoor Track and Field StudentAthlete of the Year on Monday. Ostrander, a redshirt junior at Boise State in Idaho, is the first women’s athlete to win the award, which is voted on by the league’s coaches, in back-to-back-to-back years. The award continues a string of threes for Ostrander. She won the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships on June 8 with a school-record time of 9 minutes, 37.73 seconds. The Soldotna runner became the first woman to wear three straight steeplechase crowns, and also the 15th woman to nab three straight in the same event. Ostrander also placed 16th in the 5,000 at the meet, garnering second-team All-America honors. Last week, Ostrander was named a semifinalist for The Bowerman, which is track and field’s highest honor.

the errorless Oilers won 3-2 to halve the series. At 5-6, the Oilers are back in the thick of the ABL race, sitting in fourth and two games behind the league-leading Anchorage Bucs. The Chinooks are 4-7 and three games back. “Calvin (Saturday) and his grand slam were huge,” Messinger said. “I feel like that was just what we needed to relax a bit.” The Oilers success Sunday started with the four pitchers — Brian Merken, Jacob Reed, Kyle Muller and Damon Keith — who combined to limit the Chinooks to two runs on four hits.

lot more serious about training for the game. When Becher was at SoHi, he said Dr. Robert Ledda, a SoHi assistant, constantly talked about how important nutrition is. Becher took those words to heart and now is 220 pounds due to a new dedication to eating right and working out. “He’s a gym rat now,” Quelland said. “That’s amazing from a kid in high school — that was not his forte, working out and conditioning.” Brown said Becher has become so fervent about hitting the weights that sometimes he actually lifts too heavy. “I found out how much I loved the game,” Becher said. “I don’t think it’s cliche. Someone told me I couldn’t play it for the next year.” In conference play at Southwestern, Becher finished the season 4-0 with a 1.40 ERA in 38 2-3 innings pitched.

“Tip your cap to Johnny Wholestaff today,” Groth said. The effort on the mound meant a three-run rally by the Oilers in the bottom of the second was enough for the victory. Bobby Goodloe started the inning with a double, but the next two batters were retired. Up stepped Messinger, but this time he would need no mulligan. He drilled a double off the wall in left center to score Goodloe. “I tried to turn my brain off a bit — get up and let my instinct take over,” Messinger said. “Just go up and hit it hard.” Jonathan Villa then singled to score Messinger, and Kenai Central product Paul Steffensen followed with a single and swipe of second to put two runners in scor-

ing position for Camden Vasquez. Vasquez singled on the infield to score Villa, then Steffensen was cut down at home to end the inning. Groth was very happy with the start of Tyler O’Clair, who went six innings and gave up eight hits, and the relief of Brian Cardone, who gave up just a hit in two innings. That pitching almost let the Chinooks steal a win. In the fourth, Ethan English had a two-run home run. In the ninth, Keith had set down the first five Chinooks he saw — three by strikeout — when J Paul Fullerton doubled with two away. Jake Collins immediately went down 0-2, but then ripped a hard grounder down the third-base line that was foul by, as Groth said,

a whisker. Instead of being the go-ahead run on second base, Collins would fly out to end the game. “We’re playing 10 games in nine days,” Groth said. “I’m still happy to leave here 3-3. We had lost four straight games coming in here.” Vasquez continued to impress at his leadoff spot, finishing 2 for 3 to raise his average to .487. Goodloe was 2 for 4. “I still don’t think we’re firing on all cylinders yet,” Messinger said. “We’ll be a really dangerous squad when we get it going this summer.” The Oilers took Monday off before beginning an eight-game road trip with 7 p.m. games Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday against the Mat-Su Miners.

Brown said Becher had a rough first two outings coming off the rehab, but then found his stride. “Once he got through those first two, he went on a roll with quality start after quality start,” Brown said. “He became one of our staples.” Having recovered to be one of the top pitchers in the conference, Becher now has the new challenge of moving up a level to Point Loma. The Oilers and Brown will be a big part of that. “He told me if I can get outs here, I can get outs at Southwestern,” Becher said of Brown. “Now he told me if I can get outs here, I can get outs at Point Loma.” Thus far, Becher has a 3.34 ERA in 8 1-3 innings. He is scheduled to start Wednesday on the road against the Mat-Su Miners. Becher’s best pitch is the fastball, which he threw in the upper 80s for Southwestern this season. Brown said with refined mechanics, there is no reason Becher can’t throw in the lower 90s. Both Becher and Brown

said Point Loma head coach Justin James is very good at using advanced techniques to get more velocity out of his players. Becher has a solid curveball that could use some sharpness, but the big challenge for him this summer is the changeup, which needs a lot of work. “It’s always been a dream to get drafted,” Becher said. “I know I have the body and the work ethic. It’s going to be all about proving at the next level that I can get people out with three pitches.” Brown has told Becher he throws a heavy ball, meaning it is very hard to hit for a home run. Becher said the knock-on-wood stat of the day is that he hasn’t given up a home run since Kenai Central’s Ellery Steffensen, brother of current Oilers center fielder Paul, touched Becher up in the 2015 high school season. Becher said Becher also must prove a lack of game experience will not hold him back. The short Alaska summer already left him short on high school games,

and the yearlong break due to surgery didn’t help. The flip side of that is Becher is very appreciative that the baseball programs in Alaska were even able to get him this far. He lists off coaches Mike Griffin and Roger Phillips from Little League, Quelland and Ledda from SoHi, Quelland and Lance Coz from the Twins, and Brown and Jim Dietz from the Oilers. “Without all of them, I’d never be where I am today,” Becher said. Last week, Becher showed his appreciation for the Twins by attending practice and addressing the players about his experiences at higher levels of baseball. Becher also marvels at how the Oilers are able to bring top players from around the country to the peninsula each summer. “I’ve loved all the different cultures, styles of play and all the different ideologies being brought to my hometown in Alaska,” Becher said. “It’s one of the best opportunities I could have had.”

Today in History Today is Tuesday, June 18, the 169th day of 2019. There are 196 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 18, 1979, President Jimmy Carter and Soviet President Leonid I. Brezhnev signed the SALT II strategic arms limitation treaty in Vienna. On this date: In 1778, American forces entered Philadelphia as the British withdrew during the Revolutionary War. In 1812, the War of 1812 began as the United States Congress approved, and President James Madison signed, a declaration of war against Britain. In 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte met defeat at Waterloo as British and Prussian troops defeated the French in Belgium. In 1940, during World War II, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill urged his countrymen to conduct themselves in a manner that would prompt future generations to say, “This was their finest hour.” Charles de Gaulle delivered a speech on the BBC in which he rallied his countrymen after the fall of France to Nazi Germany. In 1945, William Joyce, known as “Lord Haw-Haw,” was charged in London with high treason for his English-language wartime broadcasts on German radio. (He was hanged in January 1946.) In 1948, Columbia Records publicly unveiled its new long-playing phonograph record in New York. In 1953, a U.S. Air Force Douglas C-124 Globemaster II crashed near Tokyo, killing all 129 people on board. Egypt’s 148-year-old Muhammad Ali Dynasty came to an end with the overthrow of the monarchy and the proclamation of a republic. In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson and Japanese Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda spoke to each other by telephone as they inaugurated the first trans-Pacific cable completed by AT&T between Japan and Hawaii. In 1983, astronaut Sally K. Ride became America’s first woman in space as she and four colleagues blasted off aboard the space shuttle Challenger on a six-day mission. In 1992, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Georgia v. McCollum, ruled that criminal defendants could not use race as a basis for excluding potential jurors from their trials. In 1996, Richard Allen Davis was convicted in San Jose, California, of the 1993 kidnap-murder of 12-year-old Polly Klaas of Petaluma. (Davis remains on death row.) In 2004, an al-Qaida cell in Saudi Arabia beheaded American engineer Paul M. Johnson Jr., 49, posting grisly photographs of his severed head; hours later, Saudi security forces tracked down and killed the alleged mastermind of the kidnapping and murder. Ten years ago: Tens of thousands of protesters filled the streets of Tehran again, joining opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi to mourn demonstrators killed in clashes over Iran’s disputed presidential election. Hortensia Bussi, the widow of Chilean President Salvador Allende who helped lead opposition to the military dictatorship that ousted her husband, died at 94. Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin was named the NHL’s most valuable player for the second straight year after leading the league with 56 goals. Five years ago: President Barack Obama met with senior lawmakers in the Oval Office for over an hour to discuss options for responding to the crumbling security situation in Iraq; afterward, congressional leaders said the president believed he did not need authorization from Congress for some steps he might take to quell the al-Qaida-inspired insurgency. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ruled that the Washington Redskins’ name was “disparaging of Native Americans” and should be stripped of trademark protection. Clayton Kershaw pitched his first no-hitter as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Colorado Rockies 8-0. One year ago: President Donald Trump announced that he was directing the Pentagon to create the “Space Force” as an independent service branch. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described as a “moral and humanitarian crisis” the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that had separated children from their parents at the southern U.S. border. Trump defended his administration’s border policies, saying the country “will not be a migrant camp” on his watch. The Supreme Court allowed electoral maps that were challenged as excessively partisan to remain in place for now, declining to rule on the bigger issue of whether to limit redistricting for political gain. Troubled rapper-singer XXXTentacion was shot and killed in Florida in what police called an apparent robbery attempt. Today’s Birthdays: Former Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., is 82. Baseball Hall of Famer Lou Brock is 80. Sir Paul McCartney is 77. Actress Constance McCashin is 72. Actress Linda Thorson is 72. Rock musician John Evans is 71. Former Sen.

Single man falls off friends’ radar after they get married ting yourself in social situations where you can meet some new single friends. DEAR ABBY: I have had a chronic illness for 15 years. It has a myriad of symptoms that are very painful. While some of them are fleeting, others last for Abigail Van Buren weeks. My family is angry with me because they say I am not dependable. It seems like every conversation requires some sort of explanation or apology. My husband is supportive, so our household is calm and reassuring. He says I should stop communicating with these relatives because the negativity is depressing and demoralizing. How can I get them to accept me as I am? -- ANONYMOUS IN AMERICA DEAR ANONYMOUS: You can’t force people who have no empathy to have it. For whatever reason, it isn’t in their DNA. You can, however, take care of YOURSELF. If seeing or talking with

statements. You could be sarcastic with an associate or friend. Try to lighten up. Tonight: Use your imagination. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Your creativity knows no limit. You will emerge from a difficult conversation far more together. You demonstrate an ability to think past the obvious. Others admire this quality in you. Tonight: Time for some fun. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You are quite serious-minded and will successfully attempt to pull a difficult interaction into the realm of success. You have the diplomatic skills to succeed. You might find it very important to deal with a domestic matter. Tonight: Talk away. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Once more you will speak your mind, but your expressions will reveal far more than your words. You will not be able to cover up intense or difficult feelings. Stay as authentic as possible. Tonight: With a favorite person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Your possessive side emerges when dealing with others. Even when you try to stay calm, cool and collected, your fiery personality comes out. You cannot identify with one person specifically, and vice versa. Explain a self-imposed restriction if you want. Tonight: Go Dutch. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH You certainly make a good impression this morning. A conversation you have might be far more significant to the other party than to you. Make sure you do not commit to anything you cannot live up to. Tonight: Just ask. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You might want to lie back and do less. You could be quite tired and need some time to yourself. You cannot keep a hectic pace all the time. You might note that your fuse is short. Try to take a walk and let go of stress. Tonight: Early to bed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Zero in on your priorities and do not settle for less. You could be exhausted, hoping for another solution or offer. You might not like what someone offers because of what he or she demands in return. Say no if you want. Tonight: Where you can have fun.

Fido goes to work? Dear Readers: This Friday, June 21, is the annual TAKE YOUR DOG TO WORK DAY! Pet Sitters International (www.PetSit. com) founded this special day. PSI wants dogs to come into the workplace and interact with dog owners and non-dog owners alike to show how dogs can fit into our lives seamlessly! Dogs are marvelous companions, and they want to be with us; they are pack animals, after all. Bringing dogs together with people on this special day will improve worker morale, help boost the participating companies’ positive image and spread the word about animal adoption. Every day here at Heloise Central is Take Your Dog to Work Day; ask at your company if you can give it a whirl! -- Heloise P.S.

Dear Heloise: I’d like to answer Peter and Lois from Michigan about hiring older workers: Your school district is always looking for good, dependable employees: bus drivers, monitors, teacher’s aides, cleaners and lunchroom workers. Take it from one who’s been there: You won’t get rich, but you’ll have a rewarding job shaping the leaders of tomorrow. -- Lester H., Lodi, N.Y. Marvelous!

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, June 18, 2019: This year, you often show a charming, expressive personality. Others delight in being around you. More and more, you will notice a determined and focused person lies within. You want what you want and plan to zero in on that goal. If single, you could easily confuse a new sweetie with your multifaceted personality. You will want to choose someone who flows with you. If attached, the two of you are likely to have difficulty seeing eye to eye over finances and/or another critical issue. Understand where your significant other is coming from and respect his or her view. CAPRICORN can be too serious for your taste. 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 Your productivity emerges, allowing you to flex more. However, manifesting a long-term goal will take determination. Curb a tendency to be sarcastic when making an obvious observation. Someone might take your comment personally. Tonight: Use your sixth sense. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Your steadfast earthiness allows you to move in new directions. You might want to understand where another person comes from before you commit to a decision that could impact both of you. He or she might not immediately be in the mood to share. Tonight: Feed your mind. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH One-on-one relating could be quite successful if you so choose. You might not be in the mood to make a major change, but you are receptive about a discussion involving this change. You are trying on the idea for size. Tonight: Work on teamwork with a project and a friend. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You could be very serious, yet you find the other party you need to speak to has closed down. You might want to tease this person to get a response. Be aware that you might not get the results you desire. Tonight: Be available. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You could be overly serious and not as flexible as you might like. Think before you make any firm or committed

your relatives leaves you feeling worse, it would make sense to follow your husband’s advice. DEAR ABBY: I’m a woman with a situation I’ve never seen addressed in your column. Most adult identical twins do not go out of their way to look 100% alike. They’ll style their hair differently, groom facial hair differently or dress differently. I attend a church where two middle-aged women appear to have missed that memo. They wear the same hairstyle, the same glasses and nearly identical clothes. This makes me tend to avoid them because I’m embarrassed to admit I have no clue as to which one I’m talking to. Please give me your input. -- SEEING DOUBLE IN CALIFORNIA DEAR SEEING DOUBLE: Rather than allow the inability to distinguish between the twins cause you to shun them, why not explain your problem? If you do, perhaps they can suggest a way you can identify them as individuals. As you interact with them, you may also notice characteristics that will help you tell who’s who.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 26-year-old single man. Most of my good friends are getting married, and when they do, they stop speaking to me. I have a hard time not resenting them for it. It makes me feel my company was a placeholder until they got married, and I’m not worth keeping around now that they have what they really want. It makes me feel like a second-class citizen. Is this typical behavior or am I right to feel slighted? If you have any advice for someone in my situation, I’d appreciate it. -- PLACEHOLDER IN THE EAST DEAR PLACEHOLDER: You may be taking this too personally. When people marry, their interests and their social schedules change. They tend to socialize with other newlyweds, which may be why you see less of them. There could be many reasons why you are no longer included -- among them that they don’t want you to feel like the odd man out. Make sure they know that won’t be the case, you still value their friendship and you would love to get together with them. That may prompt them to include you more often. Also, make a point of staying active and put-

Scientists take a peek behind those sad puppy dog eyes By JEREMY REHM Associated Press

NEW YORK — What’s behind those hard-to-resist puppy dog eyes? New research suggests that over thousands of years of dog domestication, people preferred pups that could pull off that appealing, sad look. And that encouraged the development of the facial muscle that creates it. Today, pooches use the muscle to raise their eyebrows and make the babylike expression. That muscle is virtually absent in their ancestors, the wolves.

“You don’t typically see such muscle differences in species that are that closely related,” said Anne Burrows of Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, an author of the study released Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Dogs differ from wolves in many ways, from having shorter snouts, smaller sizes and more expressive faces. And unlike wolves, dogs heavily rely on human eye contact, whether to know when someone’s talking to them or when they can’t solve a problem, like hopping a fence or

getting out the door. Burrows and her colleagues examined the eye muscles in the cadavers of six dogs and two wolves. They found dogs have a meaty eye muscle to lift their eyebrows and make puppy dog eyes. But in wolves, the same muscle was stringy or missing. The scientists also recorded 27 dogs and nine wolves as each stared at a person. Pet pooches frequently and intensely pulled back their eyebrows to make sad expressions, while the wolves rarely made these faces, and never with great intensity.


advantage when interacting with people, and people have been unaware of it. “The proof has been in their puppy dog eyes all this time!” he said. Evan MacLean at the University of Arizona called the findings fascinating, but cautioned that the muscle difference could be an indirect effect of other changes rather than a specific response to human influence. Clive Wynne of the Canine Science Collaboratory at Arizona State University said: “Kudos to the researchers for thinking of

a cool way to investigate an important aspect of dogs’ success” with humans. But he noted in an email that the study has a few snags, particularly the small sampling — only five dog breeds were examined and videos were mainly of Staffordshire bull terriers — and the lack of background information about each animal. “Did these wolves regularly meet people bearing gifts that might be worth asking for with an endearing face?” he asked. Burrows said she planned follow-up studies to examine more breeds.

Meet Winter My name is Winter. I am a 6 month old female. I have lived with children but find them to be scary so I try to avoid them when possible. I like to ponce on things and sometimes play rough. I like to have my head, ears and back petted. I don’t mind being picked up when I want to.

The researchers believe dogs, over their relatively short 33,000 years of domestication, used this eye muscle to communicate, possibly goading people to feed or care for them — or at least take them out to play. And people, perhaps unwittingly, obliged. Dog experts not involved with the study were impressed. “The implications are quite profound,” said Brian Hare from Duke University and who edited the article. Hare wrote in an email that these muscles almost certainly developed because they gave dogs an

Meet Tank This boy has a sad story and all he wants is a new home where he will never have to be stuck on the end of a chain again. He can be submissive at times and he might be better in a home with no children. For the person living away from people he is going to be a great dog. He just gets overwhelmed and then he can act out. He really just wants someone to himself.
