Democrats tangle in first presidential debate Immigration, health care, climate change and Donald Trump emerged as leading topics, with Washington Gov. Jay Inslee taking the lead on the climate change discussion. By Mark Z. Barabak and Melanie Mason Los Angeles Times

MIAMI — Ten Democratic White House hopefuls found broad consensus Wednesday night on a range of issues, reserving the full measure of their contempt and their harshest put-downs for President Donald Trump. There were a handful of clashes among contestants, who shared a stage at a fine arts center in downtown Miami for the first of two consecutive debate nights. But their differences were largely on the margins, or were matters of degree, as the mostly friendly rivals used the question-and-answer format to paint broader portraits of their candidacies. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker spoke of living in a

violence-plagued low-income neighborhood of Newark. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren alluded to the scores of policyfilled town halls she has held.

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard spoke of her military service, and former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro of being raised by a struggling single mom.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who has made the fight against global warming the centerpiece of his candidacy, boasted of his executive standing. Contrasting it with

the many congressional lawmakers on stage, he also said he had done more than any other to protect a woman’s legal right to abortion — which drew a tart rejoinder from Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar. “There’s three women up here who have fought pretty hard for a woman’s right to choose,” she dryly noted. Twenty of the roughly two dozen Democratic presidential candidates qualified for the debate stage under the rules set by the Democratic National Committee, based on poll standing and fundraising performance. The field was split into two sets of 10. The lineup for the second debate Thursday night, determined by lot, includes most of the top tier candidates, including the Democratic front-runner, former Vice President Joe Biden, and the candidate running second in most polls, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. The president was a repeated target. Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan accused Trump of breaking the promise he made to his Rust Belt constituents to reverse decades of economic See DEBATE, Page A5

Gold Bar latest town to embrace ATVs Another

Snohomish may not be far behind with its four-wheeler pilot project By Julia-Grace Sanders Herald Writer


GOLD BAR — Another Snohomish County city has joined the ranks of those allowing wheeled all-terrain vehicles on its streets. The Gold Bar City Council voted 4-1 to pass an ordinance legalizing ATVs in the city last week. Snohomish might be next. “My hope with this ordinance passing is that those who are respectful and use them legally will want to use them for recreational purposes like riding them up to an ice cream shop on a sunny day,” Gold Bar Mayor Bill Clem said. The idea first came up for discussion nearly a decade ago, Clem said.

It resurfaced recently as Darrington, Granite Falls, Stanwood, Sultan and Monroe passed similar laws. In Monroe, where the vehicles have driven legally since May of last year, the hum of an ATV is a regular addition to downtown’s ambiance. Starting at 8 a.m., tutu-sporting Michelle Walker can be seen zipping around town delivering coffee for the Original Pilot Coffee House in the company’s branded ATV. Walker, known as “the caffeinator,” said the vehicles are perfect for short trips through the city. Gas is cheap, and insurance is relatively inexpensive.

draws people to ATVs, she said. Walker’s family has owned the vehicles for years. She said it was “a dream come true” when Monroe legalized them on city streets. Her family used to seek out cities that allowed ATVs on the road for vacations. “To have that as an option in our hometown is really amazing,” she said. “It’s fun. It’s freeing.” As it has in other cities, the topic of opening city streets to ATVs drew passionate public comment from both sides in Gold Bar, Clem said. The primary concerns of those opposed were based on behavior that’s already illegal, like quad drivers not wearing helmets. The new law will hopefully give

ATV owners another way to use them legally, Clem said. Gold Bar’s ordinance will mirror state requirements. Those include wearing a motorcycle helmet, unless the ATV has seat belts and roll bars or an enclosed compartment for the driver and passengers. The state also requires safety features such as headlights, turn signals and a windshield. The new rules are part of a statewide effort to boost tourism in rural areas and expand recreation for the estimated 25,000 ATV owners in Washington. By law, cities can create local rules allowing quads, side-by-sides and four-wheelers, with a 35 mph

A new software problem has been found in the troubled Boeing 737 Max that could push the plane’s nose down automatically, and fixing the flaw is almost certain to further delay the plane’s return to flying after two deadly crashes. Boeing said Wednesday that the FAA “identified an additional requirement” for software changes that the aircraft manufacturer has been working on for eight months, since shortly after the first crash. “Boeing agrees with the FAA’s decision and request, and is working on the required software to address the FAA’s request,” Boeing said in a statement. Government test pilots trying out Boeing’s updated Max software in a flight simulator last week found a flaw that could result in the plane’s nose pitching down, according to two people familiar with the matter. In both Max crashes, the plane’s flight-control software pushed the nose down based on faulty readings from one sensor. The people said fixing the issue might be accomplished through software changes or by replacing a microprocessor in the plane’s flightcontrol system. One said the

— there is no set timeline. “On the most recent issue, the FAA’s process is designed to discover and highlight potential risks. The FAA recently found a potential risk that Boeing must mitigate,” the agency said. The Max began passenger flights in 2017 and is Boeing’s best-selling plane, although fewer than 400 have been delivered to airlines. A Max flown by Indonesia’s Lion Air crashed in October, and an Ethiopian Airlines Max crashed in March. In all, 346 people

died. Days after the second crash, regulators around the world grounded the plane. Boeing is scaling back the power of flightcontrol software called MCAS to push the nose down. It is also linking the software’s nose-down command to two sensors on each plane instead of relying on just one in the original design. It is still uncertain what kind of training pilots will get for flying the plane with the new software — either computer-based or

in-flight simulators. Meanwhile, some airlines that own Max jets have had to cancel large numbers of flights while the planes remain grounded. On Wednesday, United Airlines pushed back the scheduled return of its 14 Max jets until September. Southwest Airlines and American Airlines had already made similar announcements — an acknowledgement that the plane won’t return to flying as soon as the airlines had hoped.

Snohomish is also considering a pilot program to allow ATVs on its streets. The City Council asked staff last week to draft a proposal, which is expected to reach the council in late August.

“I don’t know which way the council will determine,” city administrator Steve Schuller said. Snohomish County has also begun to open some roads to ATVs. Last year, the County Council approved expanding a program to allow ATVs on some east-county arterials with speed limits of 35 mph or less. The routes —Mann, Old Owen and Ben Howard roads— connect unincorporated areas between Sultan and Monroe, two cities that had already passed laws to legalize ATVs on some city streets. There’s a chance that could happen on the

outskirts of Gold Bar as well. County Councilman Sam Low said he plans to advocate for opening up the county-operated portion of May Creek Road to ATVs. That would allow riders to get from the city to popular trails in Reiter. There is currently no legal way to ride an ATV from Sultan to Gold Bar, since U.S. 2 is the only road connecting them. “I think all these counties should be opened up to ATVs,” Low said. “But it’s up to the entire council to decide that.” Julia-Grace Sanders: 425-339-3439; jgsanders@

German tourists hit, killed at swimming hole Associated Press WASHOUGAL — Two German tourists visiting family in nearby Portland, Oregon, were run over and killed by a local man as they sunbathed by a swimming hole, police in Washington said Wednesday. Police arrested David E. Croswell, 71, of Washougal and held him on suspicion of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence of intoxicants and hitand-run driving that causes death. Killed were Rudolf

Hohstadt, 61, and Regina Hohstadt, 62, of Germany. Authorities say Croswell told them he had been drinking at a local restaurant Tuesday before the crash. Court documents show a preliminary breath test taken nearly four hours after crash found he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.085. In Washington, a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or greater is considered evidence of drunken driving. He made a first court appearance Wednesday morning, where bail was set at $500,000. He will be arraigned July 10. The Columbian newspaper reported that Croswell’s court-appointed attorney, Shon Bogar, said Croswell i has medical problems, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Bogar asked the judge to set a more reasonable bail amount. Police said Croswell didn’t stop or slow down after crashing through the fence. He tore down an embankment to the sunbathing area, turned hard to the left, ran over the victims and then circled up a berm, knocked over a sign and left through the other side of the parking lot. He was arrested several miles away, police said.

Summer delayed by snow ... days Even districts that sought weather waivers from the state had to add days to the calendar. By Ian Davis-Leonard Herald Writer

EVERETT — As the sunshine outside hinted at summer, thousands of students across Snohomish County spent extra days in the classroom to offset time missed from winter snow. On Wednesday, classes ended in the Edmonds School District — the only remaining community in the county still in session — five days after it was originally scheduled to dismiss students for

summer break. “This is the first time in many years that we have had this many days to make up,” said Debby Carter, executive director of human resources for the Edmonds School District, via email. Even so, the school year could have been extended much longer, even into July in one district, without permission from the state to waive some instructional days. Edmonds, like every school district in Washington, is required by state law to provide at least 180

school days and an average of 1,027 instructional hours to its students. Since Gov. Jay Inslee declared February’s adverse weather a state of emergency, school districts could apply for waivers with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction to get relief from the 180-day requirements so long as they found ways to meet the 1,027hour requirement. Even with most districts having snow makeup days built into their calendars, February’s historic snowfall forced many to add extra days beyond the scheduled end of the school year. With as many as seven days to make up, Snohomish County

school districts jumped at the waiver opportunity. “We have always made up the time,” Carter said. “With the governor’s emergency declaration, we thoughtfully processed this decision and felt that one day at the end of the school year would not substantially affect student education.” Everett, Edmonds, Granite Falls, Lake Stevens, Lakewood, Marysville, Monroe, Mukilteo, Northshore, Stanwood-Camano and Sultan school districts each waived at least one day of class canceled by snow. In all, they were allowed See SNOW, Page A5

Members of the Timber Framers Guild and volunteers raise a picnic shelter at Lake Roesiger County Park in late May.


An ancient craft finds life in county parks Skilled craftsmen and volunteers build picnic shelters and a stage using timber framing techniques. By Julia-Grace Sanders Herald Writer

MONROE — Trees the Snohomish County parks department cut down for safety or forest health have found new life as picnic shelters and a stage at Lake Roesiger, Whitehorse and Kayak Point county parks. On Memorial Day, a picnic shelter took form as about 35 volunteers from near and far hoisted up a timber frame made from the trees. Led by instructors from the Bellingham-based Timber Framers Guild, the volunteers spent a week at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds learning details of the craft and constructing two identical, covered picnic shelters slated for Lake Roesiger County Park and Whitehorse County Park and a small stage for Kayak Point County Park. Timber framing is a style of construction involving heavy lumber and wood joinery

techniques, which are held in place with wooden pegs. The practice was common until about 1900, when the demand for cheap, fast housing ushered the use of lighter lumber, according to the guild’s website. Today, members of the guild work with local communities and nonprofits to keep timber framing alive. Raoul Burchette traveled from Apple Valley, California, to attend the guild’s workshop in Monroe. His interest in timber framing started when he picked up a book

on the subject on accident. The aesthetic, as well as the communityoriented process of building, drew him to the craft. “I was just so excited to get an opportunity to do this hands-on,” Burchette said. Working eight-hour days or longer, he and the other volunteers shaped massive, 150- to 900-pound beams into the bones for the shelters and stage. “I didn’t know anything about how to do it or even the idea behind it until we did it,” Burchette said.

After a week of lifting, cutting and hammering, the structure was ready for raising. The group used a crane to lift sections of the frame into place, each piece fitting together like a puzzle. “It was very satisfying,” Burchette said. Volunteers came from as far as Norway to help with the project, guild executive director Mack Magee said. The organization does about three similar projects a year, either for nonprofits or local governments. “We do it to teach people how and to spread awareness about timber framing as a modern alternative to common building techniques,” Magee said. The Lake Roesiger shelter was $95,000 in county funds, according to parks spokesperson Shannon Hays. The Whitehorse shelter and stage for Kayak Point were an additional $55,000. Most of the lumber came from trees slated to come down at Squire Creek Park near Darrington. The shelter for Whitehorse Park is scheduled to be installed in 2020. Julia-Grace Sanders: 425-3393439;

Year’s biggest election for Democrats isn’t on ballot


LYMPIA — Next month’s selection of a new speaker for the state House of Representatives may be the year’s most important contest for Democrats in Washington. Seattle Democrat Frank Chopp, one of the most dominant forces in Washington politics, has relinquished the seat of power in which he sat since the turn of the century. His tenure, unprecedented in length, ended in early May. And four women lawmakers are vying to succeed him — and become the first woman in this position in state history. It’s a quartet of talent: Monica Stonier of Vancouver, the majority floor leader and current

JERRY CORNFIELD member of caucus leadership; Laurie Jinkins of Tacoma, chairwoman of the Civil Rights and Judiciary Committee; June Robinson of Everett, vice chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee, and Gael Tarleton of Seattle, chairwoman of the Finance

Committee. Each enjoys support among the 57 members of the House Democratic Caucus, which will meet July 31 Frank Chopp to make a decision. A couple rounds of balloting are likely before any of them garners the required majority. This is a critical vote. Whoever wins will lead the caucus in the 2020 session. Then they will be tasked with doing whatever’s needed to retain every one of those 57 seats in next year’s elections. Recruiting candidates, raising money and crafting campaign

messages are among the requisite skills for this part of the job. This change of power coincides with a transformation of the caucus itself. Its membership is its most ethnically diverse. Women hold a majority of its seats. And its progressive bent is as dominant as ever. Big questions loom for each individual member. Will they want someone with a progressive soul and pragmatic political temperament like Chopp, which seemed to work well the past two decades? Or will they want a person willing to push a progressive agenda See CORNFIELD, Page A5

Debate: Candidates show their disdain for Trump decline. Gabbard vowed to be a president “who’ll put your interests ahead of the rich and powerful. That’s not what we have now.” Klobuchar delivered one of the harshest rebukes of the commander in chief, mocking his penchant for executive action via Twitter. “I don’t think we should conduct foreign policy in our bathrobe at 5 in the morning,” she scoffed. While the candidates were unanimous in their disdain for Trump, they differed on whether he should be impeached. Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke warned that Democrats in Congress must pursue impeachment, warning that if not, Democrats would “allow him to get away with this with complete impunity.” But former Maryland Rep. John Delaney sided with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has resisted the left’s call for impeachment and said most Americans he has spoken with do not care about Trump as much as they worry about health care or fixing the nation’s infrastructure. Some of the most passionate moments came during a discussion of immigration. The candidates were again united in directing their anger and disgust at Trump and his hardline policies. “When people come to this country, they do not leave their human rights at the border,” Booker said. But a spat erupted between the two Texans — Castro and O’Rourke —who

(O’Rourke, broke into Spanish several times during the debate, prompting Booker and Castro to display their own bilingual skills.) Castro has called for repealing the law that makes it a crime to enter the United States without permission, saying the Trump administration has used it to separate children from their parents at the border, targeting the adults for prosecution. When O’Rourke stressed the importance of prosecuting human traffickers and drug smugglers, Castro berated him for not recognizing that there are other criminal laws that enable them to be prosecuted. Other sharp divisions emerged over health care when the candidates were asked who among them would abolish private health care in favor of a universal government-run system. Only Warren and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio raised their hands. “I’m with Bernie (Sanders) on Medicare for All,”

to waive nearly 30 days of instruction, according to state records. The Darrington and Arlington school districts were exceptions, choosing not to apply for the state’s waiver. “While the state did provide an option to waive certain days, protecting student instructional time is a priority,” Arlington Public Schools Superintendent Chrys Sweeting said in a March press release. “The (school) board felt it was important not to use the waivers since snow makeup days are already published in

Democrats used strong legislative majorities and partnership with Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee to enthusiastically expand most areas of state government and to increase a raft of taxes to cover the tab. However, not everything got done in the view of some House Democrats. They are drawing up an ambitious to-do list for next year that they’ll want

our student calendar.” Often, school district leaders will seek consultation from their peers across the county, but ultimately they must decide the best recourse for the needs of the community. Superintendent Buck Marsh had the concerns of both the students and nonteaching staff in mind when Darrington decided not to request a waiver. “The reasons were, first and foremost, to give our students a full 180 days of instruction and the second also very important reason was that over half of our workforce is made up of hourly employees and to waive those days would result in them not receiving pay,” he said. Marsh said Darrington’s decision was not as difficult

radical plan to address the issue, including moving the United States to 100% clean energy and creating a job corps similar to those of the Great Depression in order to facilitate that goal. “We are the first generation to feel the sting of climate change,” Inslee said. “And we are the last generation that can do something about it.” Inslee reiterated his proposals to heavily invest in environmentally friendly technologies as a way to combine economic stimulus with slashing carbon emissions. “The biggest decision for the American public is, who’s going to make this the first priority?” Inslee said. O’Rourke talked up his $5 trillion proposal to slash carbon emissions. Castro said he would issue an executive order for the U.S. to rejoin the Paris Climate accords. Delaney proposed a carbon tax. But Ryan voiced his skepticism, saying that Democrats have lost the w orking-class voters “from forgotten communities” in the industrial Midwest by leaning too heavily toward environmentalism at the expense of economic growth. Without their support, he said, “none of this is going to get done.” After two hours of mild scrapping, the candidates closed on a largely upbeat note, emphasizing their biographies and optimism in the promise of America.

Warren said, in a nod to the candidate she is competing with for the favor of liberal Democrats. “I understand there are a lot of politicians who say ‘Oh, it’s just not possible, we just can’t do it’ ... What they’re telling you (is) that they just won’t fight for it.” O’Rourke was asked about his previous support for a measure that would replace private insurance, which he no longer supports during his presidential run. He cited union members’ concerns about losing quality private health care plans. “Wait, wait, wait,” de Blasio cut in. “Private insurance is not working for tens of millions of Americans when you talk about co-pays, the deductibles, the premiums, the out-ofpocket expenses ... How can you defend a system that’s

not working?” Delaney attacked the idea of abolishing private insurance. “I think we should be the party that keeps what’s working and fixes what’s broken,” he said. “Doesn’t that make sense?” De Blasio, befitting his New York pedigree, was perhaps the most aggressive and unreservedly liberal contestant throughout the evening. He mocked O’Rourke, without naming him, for refusing to support a 70% tax rate on the wealthiest Americans. He asserted that Democrats are supposed to support those kind of soak-the-rich policies. He called remedies to economic inequality a “battle for the heart and soul” of the party and suggested Democrats should also back free public

college education and a breakup of corporations that don’t serve democracy. Because of the sprawling size of the field, not every candidate was given a chance to respond to every question. There was broad agreement in support of tougher gun controls, expanding access to health care and negotiating with Iran to contain its nuclear ambitions. “He made us less safe than we were,” Klobuchar said of Trump’s decision to pull out of the deal negotiated by President Barack Obama. Climate change — an issue largely ignored in the 2016 campaign — drew one of the longest discussions. Inslee was the first candidate asked about the topic, which was fitting given that he has perhaps the most

the next speaker to embrace. Thus far it’s been a pretty quiet race. These Laurie Jinkins women respect each other so there’s no badmouthing, overtly or in the shadows. They insist there won’t be, and are committed to assuring the caucus will be united once the outcome is known. Ahead of the vote, each woman is contacting all

of her colleagues, by phone or in person, or both. They’re June Robinson getting asked about their vision for caucus leadership and strategy for winning elections. There’s talk about specific policies, and internal matters as well. In the meantime, the Members of Color Caucus and the Black Caucus

conducted sit-down interviews with each candidate earlier this month. On July 14, the Monica Stonier two plan to host a forum at which they hope all four candidates will be together to answer questions from members who show up. “We are absolutely not making any endorsement. We are looking to provide

avenues for our members to get information,” said Rep. Javier Gael Tarleton Valdez, D-Seattle, a leader of the 16-person Members of Color Caucus. “This is a very historic decision we’re making.”

as others being made across the county because the district had only three days of class to remedy. Stanwood-Camano School District, on the other hand, had already extended its year by four days due to a teachers’ strike and had another seven days to account for due to snow. Without the four waiver days granted, school in Stanwood would have extended into July. That would not be unprecedented. During the state record 49-day teachers strike during the 2003-2004 school year, classes went

into mid-July and high school graduation didn’t occur until July 7. “We wanted to lessen the impact on our students and families,” Maurene Stanton, Stanwood-Camano’s executive director of human resources, said via email. The district made up time in other ways, extending days scheduled to be early release or late start. In Mukilteo, there were seven days to make up because of the snow. That meant getting two waiver days and extending the last day of school a week, from

June 18 to June 25. School district spokesman Andy Muntz said student safety was the overriding priority even if it meant the potential inconvenience of adding days to the end of the school year. Even when roads were cleared of snow they could be icy, and snow removed from the streets was piled onto nearby sidewalks. “The sidewalks were impassable,” he said. “There was really no place for kids to stand when waiting for the school bus.” Everett received one waiver

day and made up for lost instructional time in other ways, said Superintendent Gary Cohn. That included holding class during what would have been nonstudent planning time allotted to teachers on Friday learning improvement days. Eric Stevick contributed to this story.

Infighting causes chaos within NRA By Lisa Marie Pane Associated Press

Infighting at the National Rifle Association exploded Wednesday, when the powerful association severed ties with its longtime public relations firm, suspended operations of its fiery online TV station and lost its top lobbyist. The latest turmoil emerged just a year before the critical 2020 presidential elections when the NRA’s ability to influence the outcome could decide the fate of gun rights. Lobbyist Chris Cox, long viewed as the likely successor to longtime CEO Wayne LaPierre, was placed on administrative leave about a week ago by the NRA, which claimed he was part of a failed attempt to extort LaPierre and push him out. It also came within hours of the association officially severing ties with Ackerman McQueen, the Oklahoma-based public relations firm that has shaped some of the NRA’s most memorable messages in the past decades. Cox had been the executive director of the NRA’s lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action, since 2002. He was credited with leading efforts to allow a decadelong ban on “assault weapons” to expire in 2004, an achievement that allowed the

gun industry to resume selling what the industry calls “modern sporting rifles” and critics claim are used too often to exact mass carnage. His resignation was confirmed by NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam. No other comment was immediately made about his departure. Cox did not immediately return a message seeking comment. However, when he was suspended, Cox said in a statement obtained by The New York Times that allegations he had been part of a group seeking LaPierre’s ouster were “offensive and patently false.” “For 24 years I have been a loyal and effective leader in this organization,” he said. Cox played his usual prominent role at the NRA’s annual meeting in Indianapolis in April, and there was little public evidence that he and LaPierre or the NRA’s board of directors were at odds. Infighting spilled out during what is normally a pep rally of sorts among gun-rights enthusiasts when Oliver North , then the NRA president, threatened to expose questionable personal and travel expenses unless LaPierre stepped down. Instead, LaPierre turned the tables on North and accused him of trying to extort him into submission. Joel Friedman, a longtime NRA board member, told The Associated

Press his first reaction when he heard that Cox was stepping down was surprise. He said he saw no indications during the annual meeting that Cox was in a dispute with LaPierre. LaPierre announced Cox’s resignation in an email sent Wednesday to staff and NRA board members that was obtained by the AP. The letter also said an investigation will continue into allegations that North sought to extort LaPierre and that the storied Marine veteran was aided by Cox, a claim first laid out in a lawsuit filed June 19. In the past few months, the NRA has filed several lawsuits against Ackerman McQueen, accusing it of refusing to document its billings and of seeking to undermine the association. Ackerman McQueen has countersued, claiming the NRA is trying to renege on its financial obligations and smear the public relations firm. Last year, NRA began asking all of its vendors for detailed documentation about its billings after New York authorities began threatening to investigate the NRA’s nonprofit status. The NRA was founded shortly after the Civil War and is chartered in New York, giving that state broad authority to investigate its operations.

During its two decades by the NRA’s side, Ackerman McQueen was responsible for crafting the association’s aggressive messaging, including the now-famous “From my cold dead hands” line uttered by actor Charlton Heston in 2000 as he vowed to resist any effort to take away his guns. The line became a rallying cry for gun owners around the country. Ackerman McQueen also created and operated NRATV. In a statement posted Wednesday on the NRA website, LaPierre said it would no longer be airing live programming and would be evaluating the station’s future. It wasn’t clear what would happen to its prominent hosts but there appeared to be no signs those on-air personalities, who are employees of Ackerman McQueen, would find spots at the NRA. In a lawsuit, the NRA said some of its members had questioned NRATV’s weighing in on “topics far afield of the Second Amendment.” In a statement Wednesday, Ackerman McQueen accused the NRA of trying to avoid its financial obligations by shuttering NRATV and implied its financial woes are partly the result of now paying for high-priced lawyers.

‘They died in each other’s arms’

Heartbreaking photo underscores the dangers migrants face trying to make it to the United States. By Marcos Aleman and Peter Orsi Associated Press

SAN MARTIN, El Salvador — The mother of a man who drowned alongside his 23-monthold daughter while trying to cross the Rio Grande into Texas says she finds a heartbreaking photograph of their bodies hard to look at but takes some comfort in knowing “they died in each other’s arms.” Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his daughter, Valeria, were swept away by the current near Matamoros, Mexico, and Brownsville, Texas, this week. The grim photo shows the girl tucked inside her father’s shirt for protection with her arm draped over his neck — an image that underscores the desperate measures migrants and asylum-seekers resort to in the face of policies designed to deter them. “It’s tough, it’s kind of shocking, that image,” the 25-year-old man’s mother, Rosa Ramírez, told The Associated Press. “But at the same time, it fills me with tenderness. I feel so many things, because at no time did he let go of her.” “You can see how he protected her,” she said. “They died in each other’s arms.” Ramírez had shared a sea-green brick home with barred windows in San Martin on the outskirts of the capital, San Salvador, with her son, his 21-year-old wife Tania Vanessa Ávalos, and their daughter until the young family decided to make the journey north. In their working-class neighborhood of about 40,000, Martínez worked in a pizzeria and Ávalos as a cashier in a fast-food restaurant, Ramírez said. The area has had problems with gang violence but these days it’s calm, she said, adding that he never had any problems with gangs — they left for economic reasons. Ramírez said they dreamed of saving money for a place of their own and that drove the family to head for the United States in early April. “I told him, ‘Son, don’t go. But if you do go, leave me the girl,’” Ramírez said. “‘No, mamá,’” she said he replied. “‘How can you think that I would leave her?’” Now she feels a hole that “nobody can fill, but God gives me strength,” she said. Marta Argueta de Andrade, their 50-year-old neighbor, said she met the family about five years ago. She described them as “good people,” and Martínez as an easygoing young man. “I would see him walking with the girl. I called her ‘little curly one,’” Argueta said. “She was very pretty.”


Senate passes $4.6B border measure WASHINGTON — The GOPheld Senate on Wednesday passed a bipartisan $4.6 billion measure to deliver aid to the southern border before the government runs out of money to care for thousands of migrant families and unaccompanied children. The sweeping 84-8 vote came less than 24 hours after the Democratic-controlled House approved a companion measure backed by party liberals that was weighed down by a White House veto threat and bipartisan rejection by the Senate. Republicans and the White House far prefer the Senate measure but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pressing for quick negotiations to merge the bills — promising that Democrats won’t knuckle under to demands to send the Senate bill directly to President Donald Trump without changes.

‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ co-star dies HONOLULU — Beth Chapman, who co-starred with her husband on the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” reality TV show and later spoke out against some bail reform measures as leader of a national bail agents’ organization, has died. Chapman died Wednesday at Queen’s Medical Center after an almost 2-year battle with cancer, Mona Wood-Sword, a family spokeswoman, said in a statement. She was 51.

House panel backs Conway subpoena


The bodies of Salvadoran migrant Oscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his nearly 2-year-old daughter, Valeria, lie on the bank of the Rio Grande in Matamoros, Mexico, on Monday after they drowned trying to cross the river to Brownsville, Texas. This photograph was first published in the Mexican newspaper La Jornada.


Rosa Ramirez cries when shown a photograph printed from social media of her son, Ramírez, 25, and granddaughter Valeria, and her daughter-inlaw, Tania Vanessa Avalos, 21, while speaking to journalists at her home in San Martin, El Salvador, on Tuesday. Her daughter-in-law survived.

“I would say to those who are thinking of migrating, they should think it over because not everyone can live that American dream you hear about,” Ramírez said. “We can put up a fight here,” she added. “How much I would like to have my son and my granddaughter here. One way or another, we get by in our country.” The U.S.-Mexico border region has long been perilous for those trying to cross illegally into the United States between ports of entry, from the fast-moving Rio Grande to the scalding Sonoran Desert. A total of 283 people died while trying to cross last year; figures for 2019 have not yet been released. On Sunday, Martínez decided to make that journey, swimming with Valeria from Matamoros to the Texas side of the Rio Grande, where he left her on the riverbank and started back to get his wife. Seeing him leave, the girl threw herself into

the water. Martínez returned to get her, but both were swept away. Ávalos was not harmed. Tamaulipas immigration official Enrique Maciel said Ávalos was “in a total shock” and would not be speaking to reporters. Covered in white sheets, the two bodies were placed into a morgue van to be driven to a funeral home. Ávalos was to fly back to El Salvador with them the following day. Maciel said Ávalos had family in the United States and had hoped to reunite with them. “She is afflicted. She is suffering. It is a dream they had to get ahead as a family, the three of them, and she returns in mourning with only the bodies of her family,” Maciel said. He urged the governments of Mexico and the United States to view migration as people seeking life solutions, not a “trespassing problem.” “The governments should

respect and protect migration,” Maciel said. News of the drownings, and the shocking photo, resonated in El Salvador among those considering heading north as part of what has been a surge of people from that country, Guatemala and Honduras fleeing poverty and violence. In a Salvadoran chat group for people thinking about forming a migrant caravan — a phenomenon that drew the ire of President Donald Trump last year but has all but vanished after Mexican immigration enforcement started cracking down — members were having a raw discussion of the perils of the journey and whether it’s right for parents to bring children. “If one goes there, they shouldn’t bring children, because going there is risking everything and a child is not prepared for that,” read one message, adding that minors should be left with loved ones back home. “The thing is, it’s more likely that they give you help with children,” another person replied. Migration activists worry people may be driven to more risky measures by recent U.S. policies such as “metering” that dramatically reduce the numbers allowed to apply for refuge, as well as others that send asylum-seekers back across the border to wait in Mexico while their cases slog for months or even longer through a backlogged U.S. immigration court system. Wait lists for registering refugee claims with U.S. officials are in the thousands at some ports of entry. Meanwhile, migrant shelters on the Mexico side are overflowing, and in places like Tamaulipas state, where Matamoros is located, cartels and gangs known to extort, kidnap and murder migrants are a major threat.

WASHINGTON — The House Oversight Committee approved a subpoena Wednesday to force White House counselor Kellyanne Conway to appear before the panel as it looks into allegations that she repeatedly violated a federal law that limits political activity by government workers. Conway did not show up at a hearing Wednesday, after the White House said Monday it would not allow her to appear . The Democraticled panel voted 25-16 to issue a subpoena.

AROUND THE WORLD Iran’s supreme leader resists new sanctions Iran’s supreme leader vowed Wednesday to resist new U.S. sanctions and again rejected any negotiations with Washington, as the country’s atomic energy agency said it would accelerate its uranium enrichment program Thursday, breaching limits under a 2015 nuclear deal. “Pressures by cruel enemies do not affect Iranians,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told judicial officials Wednesday, according to the supreme leader’s website. He said the nation “won’t give up” and asserted that the Trump administration’s calls for negotiations reflected its failure to achieve its goals through pressure.

Graves of WWII troops unearthed HONOLULU — An organization that searches for the remains of U.S. servicemen lost in past conflicts has found what officials believe are the graves of more than 30 Marines and sailors killed in one of the bloodiest battles of World War II. A team working on the remote Pacific atoll of Tarawa found the graves in March, said Mark Noah, president of the nonprofit History Flight. The remains are believed to belong to Marines and sailors from the 6th Marine Regiment killed during the last night of the three-day Battle of Tarawa. . From Herald news services

President Donald Trump is keeping up his attacks on Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell (left), seen here on the day Trump nominated him for his post.

Trump claims he ‘made’ Fed Chairman Jay Powell And now, the president says he’d like to dump him By Martin Crutsinger Associated Press

The stock market has taken in stride the almost daily drumbeat of President Donald Trump’s attacks on Federal Reserve Chair Jay Powell, caring more about how the two men tackle their respective jobs than how they handle each other. Trump is unhappy with Powell and the Fed for raising interest rates too high last year while central bankers in other countries keep rates low to support their economies. Whether Trump would fire Powell — or can legally — has been the subject of debates on the financial news networks, sometimes involving Trump himself. Doing so would be unprecedented, and experts say that’s why the markets need to take a wait and see approach, even though they have a large stake in who runs the Fed, and how. “Events have taught us that your ability to anticipate something that’s never happened before is very low, you’re not going to be right,” said Steve Chiavarone, equity strategist at Federated Investors. In his latest criticism, Trump said in an interview on the Fox Business Network Wednesday that he “made” Powell but now would like to trade him

in for Mario Draghi, the head of the European Central Bank. Draghi said last week that he was prepared to provide more stimulus if necessary to support the lagging European economy. After raising rates four times last year, which Trump and some on Wall Street have blamed for a big drop in stocks in last year’s fourth quarter, most investors believe Powell and the Fed are on track to do what Trump wants anyway — cut interest rates — to help protect the U.S. economic expansion. Ironically, Powell says the biggest threat the Fed sees to the economy is the trade war Trump is fighting with China. In May, Trump’s decision to raise existing tariffs on Chinese goods and threaten additional import taxes contributed to a 6.6% decline in the S&P 500 index. But Powell’s recent intimations of a coming rate cut helped send the S&P 500 back to a record last week. In his interview Wednesday, Trump did not acknowledge the Fed’s change in policy. And Trump again insisted he had the right to demote Powell or to fire him, something that legal experts dispute. They contend that Powell can only be removed for malfeasance in office, not for a policy dispute. Powell’s term as chairman runs

until February 2022. If Trump did try to remove Powell, it would likely hurt the market in the long term because it would damage the Federal Reserve’s independence, said Chiavarone. But he’s hesitant to predict what it would mean in the short term, particularly because Trump would likely replace Powell with someone who would be quick to cut interest rates. Investors see lower rates as jet fuel for stock prices, so the initial market reaction may be to send stocks even higher. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, said the market would likely become worried if Trump succeeds in getting close political allies on the seven-member Fed board. After announcing he planned to nominate conservative commentator Stephen Moore and former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain to the two Fed vacancies, those two candidates withdrew from consideration after the possibility that they would join the Fed generated heavy opposition. “At the moment, markets see this as much ado about nothing but this could change quickly if the president succeeds in packing the Fed with his partisans,” Zandi said. Zandi also said that foreign

investors might become worried about the attacks on Powell before U.S. investors do. “We rely on global investors to buy our stocks and bonds and I think they are growing more wary. They may be the first to react,” Zandi said. Trump said Wednesday that one reason he’s unhappy with the Fed’s rate hikes was that it raises the cost of borrowing for the federal government. “I want to pay it off,” Trump said of the debt, a pledge he had made during the 2016 presidential campaign. The growth of the $22 trillion national debt has accelerated under Trump whose last budget projected annual deficits would top $1 trillion beginning this year. Trump’s latest Fed attack came a day after Powell made his most extensive comments on the Fed’s need for political independence to do its job. Asked about the repeated criticism by Trump, Powell said, “We are human. We make mistakes. I hope not frequently but we will make mistakes. But we won’t make mistakes of integrity or character.” Powell said that the Fed’s independence from direct political control had served the country well and when central banks do not have that protection “you see bad things happening.”

Amazon-fueled jump in back-to-school spending forecast By Jordyn Holman Bloomberg

The school year is only just finishing across the U.S., but is making sure parents are already thinking about back-to-school shopping. Spending for new clothes and school supplies used to begin in August, ahead of the new academic year. Now, retailers are using Amazon’s mid-summer Prime Day as the starting gun for their back-toschool promotions. This year, Prime Day, which is in its fifth year, will run over 48 hours starting July 15. In a sign of how Amazon’s event has altered the summer landscape, 63% of parents said they will start buying items for the school year in July or even earlier, up from 60% from last year, according to a study released Tuesday from RetailMeNot, a digital coupon provider. A longer shopping season may translate into higher spending: This year, they plan to dole out $507 on average for clothing, electronics and other schoolrelated goods, the study found.

That’s up from $465 in 2018. “The key here is that Amazon really has affected the gravitational force in retail,” said Reilly Stephens, director of insights at Retail Prophet, an industry consultancy. Eighty-four percent of retailers say Prime week has become the most important time for online sales

during the nearly three-month backto-school season, the study found. When Amazon started Prime Day as a mid-summer shopping event, only about seven other companies joined in to offer competing deals, according to Michelle Skupin, RetailMeNot’s head of marketing and communications. That number

has steadily grown to around 200 last year and is expected to reach 250 in 2019, she said. “Consumers are incentivized to make purchases when presented with the deals. We look at the Prime Day period as being Cyber Monday in July,” Skupin said. This year, there may be an added incentive to buy early — Trump’s potential next round of tariffs on everything from apparel to musical instruments haven’t hit yet. President Donald Trump and Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping will meet at the G-20 Summit in Japan. Adlucent, a digital marketing agency based in Austin, Texas, also noted that Prime Day seems to have noticeably altered consumers’ behavior. “Since Prime Day falls right around back-to-school, it has essentially created a second holiday shopping season for consumers to anticipate,” Adlucent said in its report. “So, brands in relevant back-to-school categories have the added perk of drawing on this shopper mindset.”

Wayfair workers protest sale to detention center BOSTON — Employees at online home furnishings retailer Wayfair are walking out to protest the company’s decision to sell $200,000 worth of furniture to a government contractor that runs a detention center for migrant children. More than 500 employees at the company’s Boston headquarters signed a protest letter to executives when they found out about the contract.

California, Canada sidestep Trump, ink deal on emissions California picked up an important partner its dispute with the Trump administration over vehicle emissions and fuel economy by announcing a deal with Canada to reduce pollution. The agreement comes as the state is in a standoff with its own federal government on the same issues, with little hope of resolving the dispute out of court.

Driverless trucks tested without anybody in the cab The self-driving trucks usually have a human backup driver. Not this time in Florida. By Peter Holley

The Washington Post

At first glance, the 18-wheeler, white with green lettering crawling down its side, looked like any other heavy-duty truck on the road. The vehicle merged onto the busy Florida Turnpike outside Tampa earlier this month, smoothly changing lanes and reaching 55 mph before eventually exiting the highway nearly 10 miles later. The truck didn’t have any cargo, but it was carrying a closely-guarded secret: There was nobody inside the cab. Owned by a start-up called Starsky Robotics, the vehicle is the latest example of self-driving trucks being tested on public roadways and follows similar tests across the nation from companies like Uber, Waymo, Tesla and Volvo, usually with a human backup driver behind the wheel. Unlike most of the trucks being developed by those big name companies,

Starsky Robotics’ trucks aren’t fully autonomous — they are simply unmanned. That means the vehicles employ a hybrid driving system in which computers make some driving decisions, but a remote human operator sitting in a faraway control room surrounded by screens and a steering wheel makes others, particularly during challenging stretches of road. The company’s goal is to create a “driverless” freight company that stretches across the Southeastern United States. Starsky Robotics’ 29-year-old co-founder and CEO, Stefan SeltzAxmacher, believes his scrappy, 30-person company has a built-in advantage. Unlike his competitors, he said, his company is not beholden to the dogma of building a technically pure general autonomy system. “When it comes to driving a truck, a decent person paired with a decent artificial intelligence is better than the

“I don’t know many truck drivers who have been on road for at least 10 years and don’t have a complicated family situation.” — Stefan Seltz-Axmacher, Starsky Robotics CEO

best person or the best AI,” explained Seltz-Axmacher, arguing that — for all our concerns about intelligent machines — engineers are a long way from developing AI that can replicate people’s fluid intelligence. “The tech industry doesn’t give humans enough credit, but they are really good at a lot of things that computers don’t do very well. Even mimicking the intelligence of an animal is really hard, let alone a person.” In this case, he added, humans are better at navigating off-ramps and lane

changes, but machines are better at maintaining focus during long, unimpeded stretches of roadway. Seltz-Axmacher believes his company offers a potential solution for an industry that has suffered from a nationwide shortage of employees for more than a decade, a deficit that has led to a sharp increase in shipping costs in recent years. As The Washington Post’s Heather Long reported last year, the shortage is being exacerbated by several factors: low unemployment, a humming economy that has created heavy demand for trucks, and younger workers steering clear of jobs they believe will be phased out by automation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the average age of a commercial truck driver in the U.S. is 55 years, with more than 90 percent of them male. The truck driver shortage stood at roughly 36,500 in 2016, but was expected to surpass 50,000 by the end of 2017, according to the most recent figures from the American

Trucking Associations. “Demographics are working against the industry,” Derek Leathers, CEO of Omaha-based trucking company Werner Enterprises told NPR last year. “The trucking industry average age is about 10 years older than the average age across other comparable industries like manufacturing and construction. So as those retirements are taking place, we’re just not seeing the same level of new entrants into the industry.” For a middle-aged truck driver supporting a family the benefit of remotely operating a truck is obvious, according to SeltzAxmacher: getting to leave work at the end of the day and go home and see your loved ones. The CEO says he’s met truckers who have only interacted with their children for a few days a month for more than a decade. “Driving is difficult and it’s a hard job,” he said. noting the long hours and isolation. “But what makes it even harder is how it impacts people’s personal lives. “I don’t know many truck drivers who have been on road for at least

10 years and don’t have a complicated family situation.” Removing drivers from trucks will also allow the industry to remodel the vehicle’s cabins, which are designed for comfort to entice and retain drivers, but make trucks less fuel efficient, raising shipping costs, SeltzAxmacher said. Starsky Robotics has no shortage of competition in the trucking space. Beginning last year in nearby Georgia, Waymo — formerly known as Google’s self-driving car project — unveiled a pilot program in Atlanta using Peterbilt Class 8 trucks to carry cargo bound for Google’s data centers. Tesla is also developing a long haul semitrailer truck that would include semiautonomous features for highway driving. Last year, Uber announced that the ridehailing giant was shuttering its self-driving truck program, a division that made history in 2016 by completing the world’s first autonomous truck delivery — 50,000 cans of Budweiser.

Bank of America will stop lending to private-prison firms JPMorgan Chase cut ties with private jails, and Wells Fargo is also halting loans the industry. By Lananh Nguyen Bloomberg

Bank of America Corp., the second-biggest U.S. bank, will stop lending to companies that run private prisons and detention centers. “We have decided to

exit the relationship” with companies that provide prison and immigrationdetention services, Vice Chairman Anne Finucane said Wednesday in an interview. “We’ve done our due diligence that we said we would do at the annual meeting, and this is the decision we’ve made.” The move followed a review by the bank’s environmental, social and governance, or ESG, committee, which included site visits and consultation with clients, civil rights leaders,

criminal justice experts and academics. The Charlotte, North Carolina-based lender also met with its internal Hispanic and black leaders. The company will stop its activities in the industry as soon as it can, while meeting contractual obligations, said Finucane, who leads Bank of America’s ESG efforts. JPMorgan Chase took a similar step in March, breaking off its relationship with the industry after deciding it was too risky, and Wells Fargo is also halting loans to

the industry. Protesters have been urging bank executives to back away from the business, and shares of several prison companies slumped last week after presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren tweeted about her plan to get rid of them. “The broader issues are the need for reforms in the criminal justice system and immigration,” Finucane said. Shares of two of the largest private-prison companies, GEO Group Inc. and CoreCivic Inc., fell as much

as 3.8% and 3.5%, respectively, Wednesday. They both dropped at least 17% last year. While the companies run centers on behalf of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, they’ve said they don’t operate facilities that house unaccompanied minors. Detention centers have become a flash point in recent weeks amid reports of substandard conditions at facilities for migrant children. Warren also criticized Caliburn

International Corp. for profiting off what she called the Trump administration’s “inhumane” immigration policies. “The GEO Group has never managed any facilities that house unaccompanied minors, nor have we ever managed border patrol holding facilities,” GEO Group Chief Executive Officer George C. Zoley said in a statement. Representatives for CoreCivic and Caliburn weren’t immediately available to comment.

IN OUR VIEW | Our nation’s parks and public lands

Invest in new, exisiting parks The Land and Water Conservation Fund requires full funding to serve our need for parks. Since the 1960s, about $22 billion that was supposed to buy land for parks and wildlife reserves; preserve forests, shorelines and other natural areas across the nation; protect historic sites and battlefields; and develop state and local parks, trails, playgrounds, ballfields and other recreation opportunities, has been diverted by Congress to other uses. It’s not that no money was appropriated by Congress for the Land and Water Conservation Fund that Everett’s Sen. Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson and others helped create in 1964. In all, about $17 billion has helped protect more than 7 million acres of parks, trails and public lands. But rarely since its inception has the full $900 million been made available each year to the fund as the law intended. In Washington state, the fund has invested more than $675 million since its inception to expand and protect Rainier, Olympic and North Cascades national parks and smaller preserves and parks closer to home such as Ebey’s Landing National Historic Reserve on Whidbey Island and Bothell’s North Creek Forest, a 63-acre forestland that provides a green oasis for the residential neighborhoods that surround it.

It’s important to note that those billions aren’t taxpayers’ dollars. The Land and Water Conservation Fund takes its revenue from the royalties paid for offshore oil and gas extraction, in effect using a small portion of what is removed from the nation’s resources and putting it back into the land for the current and future enjoyment of all. In recent years the program has been threatened by partisan arguments about the nature of public lands themselves, twice seeing its authorization lapsed and its funding idled. That changed earlier this year with a surprising bipartisan agreement by Congress that permanently reauthorized the LWCF, part of a monumental package of public lands legislation. But it’s a two-step process for the conservation fund. While it is now reauthorized, and won’t again risk expiration, Congress now needs to assure its funding beyond the current practice of annual appropriations that too often resulted in some of its deserved funding being diverted. Legislation in House and Senate would guarantee the funds’ $900 million annual allocation, removing the chance the money could be siphoned off. The bipartisan legislation has support from the state’s congressional delegation. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Washington, was one of the Senate bill’s prime sponsors. In the House, Reps. Suzan DelBene, D-1st District, and

Rick Larsen, D-2nd District, are among five co-sponsors from the state. Both bills are well-timed. While President Trump’s budget proposals don’t pose the threat they did when Republicans controlled both chambers, the legislation does stand against the latest Trump budget, which seeks to zero out any appropriation to the conservation fund, diverting that money instead to the maintenance backlog at national parks. Without a doubt, the national parks have suffered from years of budgetary neglect from Congress and past administrations. There is currently a $12 billion backlog of deferred maintenance for road work and buildings, campgrounds, trails, monuments and other facilities at more than 400 national park sites. But as great as the need is to maintain and protect the parks we have, the necessity of adding to public lands and reserves — and providing them the full support they have always deserved — is no less important. More than 8 million people visited national parks in this state in 2018, spending $506 million in the gateway communities outside the parks. That spending supported 5,830 jobs and added $670 million for the state economy, according to National Park Service figures. Nationwide, more than 318 million visited U.S. national parks in 2018, spent $20.2 billion in local communities,

supported 329,000 direct jobs and generated $40.1 billion in economic output. Those statistics argue for more than upkeep of what we have; they require adding to the parks and public lands that will be of increasing importance to our economy, our quality of life and as a tool for confronting climate change. “One of the reasons I’m so anxious about figuring this out and getting this right to continue making the investments in LWCF and to take care of the backlog in maintenance is I feel like climate is impacting our public lands,” Cantwell said in a release this week. “And if we don’t have all the tools to best deal with that, then we are going to be challenged.” Congress has in recent years looked at ways to begin to chip away at the maintenance backlog, including legislation that, like the LWCF, is funded not through taxpayer dollars but from oil and gas royalties. What is removed from the earth and belongs to all Americans needs to go back into investments that protect the parks and public lands we have and adds to that legacy. Having made permanent the vision of “Scoop” Jackson and others, the Land and Water Conservation Fund needs to receive the full funding that was intended more than 50 years ago. And that commitment to future parks and public lands must be joined by a renewal of our promise to the parks we now enjoy.

Ten years ago, one plan to solve all the problems was rejected and so, today, it’s a bum deal for all now concerned. It is an Edmonds kinda day!

How about clearly labeling it “Compostable!” What a concept! This is all maddening and shouldn’t be so difficult. I know China doesn’t take our plastic anymore so we’re stuck and, apparently, overwhelmed with it. We’d better figure this out PDQ! Maybe we should just start returning it all to where we got it in the first place and let the stores and their suppliers handle this detritus. Hey, a job-creating idea!


Market value is real concern Front page headline “outrage,” screams The Herald (“Waterfront disconnect ; Edmonds roadway stirs online outrage,” June 18). This article seems to relish the present angst versus the original time of proposals when people were happily discussing alternatives and accepting the problem of first response west of the BNSF tracks. And of course, the most radical of the initial proposals: the “train trench” and “tunnels” are resurrected examples most spurned without the realism of a comprehensive long-term solution that keeps every one happy and of course costs more money. Years ago was the ferry traffic parking and loading problem was also addressed and mysteriously dismissed. The biggest failure is the collective Edmonds waterfront visual rejection of anything that will solve the problem but block someone’s views. The second problem is the landed gentry’s visual perspectives or suspicions of their loss of market value. And so, the simplest and the cheapest plans put forward are now pleasing no one. Everybody

Nice, but too few restrooms I finally used the passenger terminal at Paine Field for a return flight. It was much more convenient than flying into Sea-Tac. However, I was disappointed to discover lines forming to use the restroom facilities in the terminal. Each restroom is gender neutral and a singleperson facility. While there are several hallways with three or four individual restrooms in each hallway, this number proves inadequate when one or two planes land with 90 passengers on board. For a brand new facility, I believe the lack of an adequate number of restrooms for peak


It shouldn’t be this difficult Interesting to read other letter-writers’ experiences with recycling plastics. One takeaway from such letters and articles is “rules” may vary from one town and/or waste-management service to another. Seems those of us who try to correctly sort stuff into recycle, compost and landfill bins are considered nitwits. I nag my family to clean the plastics and glass. Now I’m hearing plastics aren’t even being recycled and (I assume​) should go in the garbage. Could we hear from an expert on this? The way I handle plastic bags is to put them in a bag with loose bread-wrappers, newspaper sleeves, chip-bags, zip-locs, etc., and put that “bago-bags” on top of everything else in the recycle bin. I’ve done this for years and never been “corrected.” As I envision it all being recycled into new bags and park benches (how adorably quaint of me) maybe it’s all just ending up in the dump.

Who is Sanders after with plan to forgive debt?


any Democratic presidential primary hopefuls have pushed into the ideological territory that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, had to himself during the 2016 campaign. They’ve co-opted “Medicare for all” and promised retribution for banks and punitive taxation for the ultrawealthy. That has presented Sanders with some difficulty. In truth, his platform is more garden-variety European social democrat than nationalize-themeans-ofproduction traditional socialism. MEGAN MCARDLE But the label works as a kind of branding exercise, meaning Sanders will always be the furthest-left candidate no matter how many of his policy ideas are appropriated. That’s essential in a year when the left-wing activists of the Democratic base have been particularly left-wing and especially active. Branding does that; it sets you apart from competitors even when all are selling essentially the same product. Even a top-notch brand will ultimately lose market share, however, if the product developers fail to keep the offerings current. And with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, advancing steadily on Sanders in the polls, it looked as though Sanders needed a policy innovation to match his name recognition. On cue, Sanders announced Monday he would pair free college tuition — one of his signature 2016 initiatives — with a new bill to forgive nearly all $1.6 trillion in outstanding student loans. There’s nothing particularly socialist about either of these schemes. As the Urban Institute has pointed out, nearly 38 percent of the benefit of free two- and fouryear college would go to students whose parents make more than $120,000 a year; less than 8 percent of the benefit would go to those with household incomes of less than $35,000 a year. A similar calculus applies to student-loan forgiveness. Advocates of Sanders’ plan might retort that the disparity exists only because college is currently so expensive, fencing those who most need it out of the system altogether. That’s possible, but the experience of free college elsewhere doesn’t suggest it’s true. Free tuition in countries such as Germany and Ireland hasn’t changed the fact that the children of educated and affluent parents are much more likely to attend university; even the Nordic countries are still struggling with educational disparities, particularly at more prestigious and lucrative programs of study. A more persuasive argument: Sanders’ free-tuition and debt-cancellation plan is less an attempt at redistribution than a statement of values. Some things are simply beyond money, and college is one of them. Sanders seemed to suggest as much in announcing his new plan, saying, “We will make a full and complete education a human right.” You pay to enjoy the right to peacefully protest or practice your religion; by analogy, you also shouldn’t have to pay for college or health care. Unfortunately, these newer-fangled human rights are different from the oldfashioned kind because someone does have to pay. Physicians and nurses, and teachers and administrators, must be paid to spend their days providing your rights instead of doing something else. And so, these rights will always be limited. That’s why the countries that offer free college tend to provide something very different, and much cheaper, than the American residential, four-year state college; something more like a community college. Given those limits, one still must ask why a self-proclaimed socialist has focused on a new right that will mostly line the pockets of the educated and affluent rather than, say, a right to public transportation or assisted living. One possible answer goes back to branding: As Joe Biden seems to be locking down the moderate lane of the Democratic primary, many other top candidates are heading leftward in pursuit of the remaining voters. But another answer is that Sanders is actually feinting left while moving right, chasing not so much the radical vote as the moderate suburbanites who secured Congress for the Democrats during the 2018 midterms. Sanders is unlikely to pick up those voters during the primaries, but if he survives, he will need them during the general. And while they’re leery of the higher taxes his programs will require, they’ll be somewhat less worried if the proceeds will largely be spent on them and their progeny. Socialism for the upper middle class might not seem very, well, socialist, but it might turn out to be excellent politics. Follow Megan McArdle on Twitter @asymmetricinfo.

‘Yesterday’ gets by with a little help from a great cast



here is a small category of film concepts that are absolutely ideal for a three-minute coming-attractions trailer. But not so much for an entire movie. It pains me to suggest that “Yesterday” falls into this category. The pain comes from the fact that “Yesterday” has a glorious premise, and that it gets to play around with some of the greatest songs written by humankind. Those elements are enough to make the time pass agreeably. But dang it, it should have been better. Here’s the concept: Thanks to a single inexplicable global hiccup, the world wakes up one day without having any knowledge of the Beatles. (There’s also never been any Coca-Cola, and a couple of other things.) Much to his bewilderment, a struggling musician named Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) finds himself the only person who remembers the musical output of the Fab Four. He’s a little sketchy on the lyrics to “Eleanor Rigby” (what was the bit about picking up rice in a church?), but otherwise he has the songbook down pat. Jack was about to cash it in with his own spluttering career, but this turn of events is something new. When he starts playing “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “She Loves You” as his own compositions, the world takes notice. Even a mighty musical colossus like Ed Sheeran (good-naturedly playing an exaggerated version of himself ) pays homage. Soon

Himesh Patel plays a singer-songwriter who enjoys a major career bump, thanks to the Beatles, in “Yesterday.”

Jack is snapped up by a sharklike agent (Kate McKinnon, cold as a knife) and vaulted into the heartless world of the big time. Some of the showbiz satire is pretty good, but screenwriter Richard Curtis keeps his focus on the love story: Jack must weigh his allegiance to his manager, Ellie (Lily James, from “Baby Driver”), a platonic friendship that we are certain will not stay that way. Getting these two to acknowledge their mutual attraction might’ve been acceptable as one of the storylines in Curtis’ schmaltz-fest “Love Actually.” Here, it keeps dragging us away from the

pleasures of the Beatles plot. “Yesterday” is shamelessly cornball, although this isn’t a huge problem in a movie with built-in appeal. What’s disappointing is the way the film coasts along on its premise, with Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire”) shifting into autopilot on a regular basis. Lily James and Himesh Patel have good chemistry, which helps. Patel was a regular on the long-running British TV soap “EastEnders,” and in his first big movie role he proves himself a lively actor and a capable singer. A big part of why the movie stays enjoyable is that instead of watching a movie star play an

unknown, you’re watching an unknown play an unknown. For Beatles devotees, there are some lovely touches. In one sequence — the movie’s big reach — a risky idea flirts with extremely questionable taste. But still: For all the movie’s mixed results, the songs are front and center. There’s a great moment when Jack is about to debut his new tune, a little number called “Let It Be,” for his parents. He sneaks a look at them just to make sure: Do they really not know that title? Sure enough, they haven’t got a clue. The movie’s main fantasy is the possibility that we can all discover the Beatles for the first time — again.


“Yesterday” ★★★ Thanks to a mysterious global hiccup, the world has never known the Beatles — so the one guy who remembers all the songs suddenly gets a great career. Shamelessly cornball, this movie misses a lot of opportunities, but it coasts by on the chemistry of lead actors Himesh Patel and Lily James — and the songs are pretty good, too.

‘Annabelle Comes Home’ gets the horror-movie job done By Robert Horton Herald movie critic


t’s a crowded field for scary dolls right now, what with Chucky newly amuck and those ventriloquist dummies from “Toy Story 4” staggering through the multiplex. But there should be room for Annabelle, the wide-eyed freak-toy from the “Conjuring” world. “Annabelle Comes Home” slots into the unfolding “Conjuring” hustle with extended cameo performances from Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, returning as real-life — yes, I’m sure all this actually happened — paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren. A prologue shows the Warrens taking (you should pardon the phrase) possession of the demon-attracting doll. “The evil is contained,” intones Lorraine, putting an end to this unpleasantness. Then the Warrens get out of town, to allow their young daughter Judy (Mckenna Grace, from “Gifted”) and her babysitter (Madison Iseman) to spend a night in the house alone. Alone. In the house. With Annabelle stored in a cabinet in the locked basement room that contains all the black-magic geegaws the Warrens have gathered in their long years of pitching the hoodoo. Sure, the keys are left in plain sight on the desk in their office. But what are the chances the babysitter’s pal (Katie Sarife) will find the keys and go poking around in the locked room, deliberately tempting fate and doing a

For the most part, “Annabelle Comes Home” gets the job done within its shrewdly limited setting. It’s 1974, by the way, so the Warren house looks like the home of “The Brady Bunch,” except with more brown than avocado hues, and more demons. Although I always did wonder about the Brady house. Some of the scares are wellearned (there’s a pizza-delivery guy who really nails the landing) and enough quirky ideas to keep things perking along, like the way a Badfinger record starts skipping at an especially suspenseful moment.

Farmiga and Wilson saunter through as though sharing some kind of inside joke. It’s always been part of the appeal of these movies that their ghost-busting is treated as everyday employment. Need a poltergeist removal? Sure, we’ll get to that, after we fix the school lunches and give the car a tune-up. Let’s say this: “Annabelle Comes Home” may not be a classic, but it’s at least an improvement over “The Curse of La Llorona,” Wan’s previous attempt to expand the “Conjuring” universe. Can we expect an Annabelle-Chucky crossover movie in the near future?

New owners keep the flavor and feel of Freeland Cafe If you go

By Patricia Guthrie South Whidbey Record

FREELAND — Change don’t come easy ‘round here. Especially when it comes to breakfast. The Freeland Cafe, the venerable family diner on E. Main Street, has new owners — but it’s the same menu, same interior decor and same buzzing, busy vibe that it’s always been. Yes, you can still order the “Loco Moco,” eggs Benedict and biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Deb and Jeff Kennelly purchased the popular cafe and lounge from the three daughters of Bob and Virina Bryant, who started the Freeland Cafe in 1974. The cafe re-opened this month with the Kennellys at the grill and the till. The restaurant had been closed since April with the sale. “This isn’t a business that’s broken, so it doesn’t need to be fixed,” said Petite Bryant-Hunt, one of the daughters collectively known as “the three sisters” in Freeland. “This is a 45-year success story, but it’s taken a lot of blood, sweat and tears.” After their parents passed, the three Bryant daughters — Petite Bryant-Hunt, Dawn Swamp and Lani BryantAnderson — shouldered the family legacy. “People have been coming here literally for generations,” Bryant-Hunt said. “We served the kids of our parents’ friends, then their grandkids, so it’s a very emotional time for us.” Deb and Jeff Kennelly have no previous experience in the restaurant industry, so buying one already running smoothly

Freeland Cafe and Lounge, 1642 E. Main St., Freeland, is open 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Call 360-331-9945 or go to for more information.

works in their favor. They stopped at the cafe during visits to Coupeville to see Deb’s mother long before they had the notion to buy it. “It was the perfect business for us,” Jeff Kennelly said. “We’ve been training with the sisters. Lani showed how to make many of the dishes, and the staff has been great helping us out.” Deb Kennelly admits she asked if it would be OK to paint the front door blue and add a flower pot and wooden bench out front. But then they went even further. “We added diet Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew,” Jeff Kennelly said. More desserts may be added to the menu, as well as more daily specials. “Jeff’s a great baker,” Deb

Kennelly said, “so maybe in the next 30 days, we’ll add homemade cinnamon rolls and pies.” Bob Bryant retired early from Boeing to fulfill his wife’s dream of owning a restaurant. First, they ran the Weathervane restaurant by the Clinton ferry dock, and then bought the Freeland diner. Back then, it was called Kimball’s Cafe. The Bryants not only changed the name but also added food from Hawaii, where Virina grew up. “Back then on Whidbey, there was not much in the way of Oriental food or Chinese restaurants,” Bryant-Hunt said. Based on her favorite food from those other islands, Virina soon turned many Whidbey Islanders onto steaming bowls of teriyaki and

saimin, which is made with Chinese egg noodles in a shrimp broth topped with barbecued pork, hard boiled egg and green onion.

“Breakfast Hawaiian style” is the first item on the hefty eight-page menu. It’s made with two eggs, steamed rice and either Portuguese sausage

or Spam. Then, there’s the ever-popular Loco Moco breakfast plate, a hamburger patty with two eggs on top of steamed rice covered in gravy. “I’m here every day for breakfast,” said Dave Moulton, one of the cafe’s many regulars. “They never know what I’m going to order except on Sunday: One-half of eggs Benedict with diced green onions and hash browns smothered in gravy.” In the old days, the whole Bryant family pitched in, cooked, served, washed dishes, whatever was needed to help out Mom and Dad. But as they got older, the daughters pursued other careers and raised their own families. When both their parents were diagnosed with cancer, the sisters took turns caretaking and keeping the restaurant humming along. When their parents died, first their father in 2003, followed by their mother in 2005, the sisters made the decision to keep the restaurant. “As much as we didn’t want the headache of owning a restaurant, it’s part of our blood,” said Bryant-Hunt. “After 30 years behind the grill, I said one day, ‘I just can’t make another cheeseburger,’” she added. Should any of the three sisters get nostalgic, all they have to do is walk through the new blue door.

‘The Art of the Garden’ is back at the Schack The Schack Art Center show, displayed through August, features 130 artists from near and far By Sharon Salyer Herald Writer

This is an art show that doesn’t happen every year. But when it is scheduled, “The Art of the Garden” is one of the Schack Art Center’s most popular exhibits. “It’s a real crowd-pleaser and popular exhibit because of the theme and a lot of real colorful works,” said Maren Oates, the art center’s spokeswoman. The juried show, which continues through Aug. 31, includes the work of 150 artists, all of which are for sale. “There are a lot of gardeners in our area who look for ways to enhance the landscape,” Oates said. The art center considered all types of art for the show. Nearly 700 pieces were submitted digitally for consideration. The exhibit includes painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics, glass, metal sculptures, collage, recycled materials and wood. Many of the artists live in Western Washington, but works selected for the show are also by artists from Eastern Washington, Oregon, California, South Carolina and Florida. It took about 10 days to figure out how to best display and hang the 350 pieces chosen for the exhibit. “There are so many different styles and mediums used; it’s a very eclectic show,” Oates said. Melissa Holzinger, of Arlington, has four of her photos in the show, including “Poppy.” The macro photography technique she uses allows her to focus on details by using software to “stack” images into one photograph. “It keeps it real interesting for me,” she said. Holzinger began taking photography courses in 2005 at Everett Community College to sharpen her skills. At the time, she planned on just taking one or two courses. By the time she completed the second quarter,

“Poppy,” one of the macro photographs by Melissa Holzinger of Arlington, was selected for the Schack Art Center’s “The Art of the Garden” exhibit.

she knew she wanted even more. This was at a time when the courses were switching from film to digital photography. In 2007, she took a part-time job at the college, which she still has today. “I practice the craft of photography,” she said. “I’m devoted to the craft.” This is the second time the paintings of Laurie Olsen, of Snohomish, have been selected for “The Art of the Garden” show. Her works are called “Mac’s Tree,” “Humming in the Rain” and “Warm Robin.” The paintings of the hummingbirds and robin were created specially for this show, inspired by “what makes me happy in the garden.” Olsen said that when she went to see the other pieces in the exhibit, she was struck by the variety of works and how the show was put together.

If you go “The Art of the Garden” exhibit, showcasing the work of more than 150 artists, is on display through Aug. 31 at the Schack Art Center, 2921 Hoyt Ave., Everett, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. Go to for more information. “I was amazed at how they grouped things,” she said. “’Art of the Garden’ is probably my favorite show.” Sharon Salyer: 425-339-3486 or

Art museum pays tribute to the legendary Northwest Mystics By Evan Thompson

If you go

Herald Writer

When the Museum of Northwest Art was founded in 1981, it was dedicated to the works of the “Northwest Mystics” and the artists inspired by them. The mystics — Mark Tobey, Morris Graves, Kenneth Callahan and Guy Anderson — were the founding members of the Northwest School, an art movement that combines shadowy textures, earth tones, Asian aesthetics and natural elements from the Puget Sound area. It flourished in Skagit County beginning in the 1930s. The last of the mystics — Graves — died in 2001. But their paintings, sculptures and printmaking inspired several generations of other well-known artists, including Leo Kenney, Richard Gilkey and Paul Horiuchi. Works by the mystics and those who followed, including newer contemporaries, are featured in “continuum… continued,” on display through Sept. 22 at the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner. “Everybody’s pretty excited because this exhibit is why MoNA was founded,” said Susan Parke, show curator and museum director emeritus. “I’ve sort of lived with these pieces through my work here. They’re close to my heart.” Parke, who was the museum’s director and curator from 1990 to 2007, said she wanted the exhibit to show a visual history of Northwest art and how the Northwest Mystics tie it together. There are 54 pieces in all, including about 30 by the mystics and their successors. “It’s always important to

The exhibit “continuum… continued,” featuring works by the Northwest Mystics and artists inspired by them, is on display through Sept. 22 at the Museum of Northwest Art, 121 First St., La Conner. The museum is open from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday and Monday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free. More at www. Kenneth Callahan’s 1960 oil painting, “Birds and Dancers,” is on display at the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner.

look at our history,” Parke said. “We have a lot of visitors in the summer who want to see the pivotal pieces that started the museum.” One of her favorites from the exhibit is an untitled piece by Tobey (1890-1976) from 1954,

featuring a style he created known as “white writing,” a composition process involving thousands of fine, interwoven brush strokes. “Some of them are true abstractions,” Parke said. “Some of them are just mysterious, mystic

paintings that the viewer can read into.” The Northwest Mystics were thrust into the national spotlight by a 1953 article in Life magazine, “Mystic Painters of the Northwest.” They became widely known for their spiritual interpretations of Northwest life, focusing on symbols from nature, such as the diffuse light of the Skagit Valley. Their work contrasted with the rise of bold and colorful abstract expressionism taking hold in the

art world at the time, said Jan Hoy, a sculptor and one of the artists featured in the exhibit. “The Northwest Mystics had very earthy browns and deep blues,” Hoy said. “It had its own look, even though they were all quite different from each other.” Artists inspired by the mystics, such as abstract painter Leo Kenney (19252001), used moody lighting and colors evocative of the Pacific Northwest. Hoy, 71, of Coupeville, was most influenced by

Anderson (1906-1998), who grew up in Edmonds. In 2004, she curated a Guy Anderson exhibit for the Northwind Art Center in Port Townsend. She said his work was instrumental in her transition from chalk pastel to sculpture. “He took on some deep, meaningful subjects in very simple ways and expressed things people could write books on,” she said. “I’m doing threedimensional work, but the spirit behind it is very much the same thing. We’re on the same path.” Hoy’s sculpture, “Crescent,” is featured in the exhibit. The cast bronze piece, made around 2006, depicts the collision of two spheres. It’s an honor for her work to be included alongside Anderson’s, she said. “That’s one of the best compliments I could ever have,” Hoy said. Evan Thompson: 425-339-3427, Twitter: @ByEvanThompson.

Ride ‘em cowboy! The Darrington rodeo is this weekend By Sharon Salyer Herald Writer

Bull riding, barrel racing, bronc riding — all the rodeo activities you may have read about, but perhaps never have seen. This weekend there’s a chance to experience all these events at the Darrington Timberbowl Rodeo, now in its 55th year. The event drew some 3,000 people last year. Some 75 contestants are expected to compete each day during the twoday event, including 20 bull riders, said Nick Bates, who with his wife, Margie Bates, heads the Darrington Horse Owners Association, which organizes the event. In another event, breakaway calf roping, contestants rope and stop the calf in a timed competition. About 20 people are expected to compete each day. The bronc riding contest involves riding like they would have done a century ago, Nick Bates said, with a standard stock saddle and contestants dressed in Western

starter Adrian Houser to start the game. Crawford followed with a RBI double almost in the same spot for a 1-0 lead. Crawford later came around to score on Omar Narvaez’s single. “I’m just trying to be on time, not miss my pitch,” said Crawford, who is batting .368 (21-for-64) with 11 extra-base hits and a 1.1045 OPS over his past 18 games. “Just trying to hit the ball back up the middle.” A little cushion was ideal for Carasiti, who was signed to a minor-league deal on June 7 after being released by the Chicago Cubs. After making one prior appearance since having his

he Mariners are upon a minor anniversary, one unlikely to inspire the sentimental fetes for which the club’s marketers are locally renowned. On July 5, 2018, the Mariners beat the Angels 4-1. Their ninth win in 10 games improved their record to 56-32, two games behind the Houston Astros in the American League West. Since then, as you may have heard, the Mariners have plummeted so fast that NASA has offered to supply a heat shield for re-entry through mediocrity to a dull, but safe, thud in baseball’s cellar. From that height, the Mariners lost seven of the next nine. Through Aug. 5, they would lose 15 of 22 to fall 7½ games back and render the season inert. When the 33-41 mark after July 5 is added to 2019’s 36-47 record entering Wednesday’s game in Milwaukee, the Mariners over the past 12 months a have a winning percentage of .439 (69-88). That includes a 13-2 start to 2019 that increasingly looks as inexplicable as a rhino horn on a cat. The one-year anniversary drips with irony, since general manager Jerry Dipoto had his contract extended by ownership July 6, followed by the same for manager Scott Servais July 20. At the time, Servais gushed about the team’s prospects. “We’ve had a great first half,” Servais told reporters the day his extension was announced. “I’m really looking forward to what’s ahead of us in the next two and half months. We’ve put ourselves in a great position. “We’ve talked about bringing playoff baseball back to the Pacific Northwest. We’ve got a shot. It’s not going to be easy. And that’s the focus I want on the remainder of this season, not on this contract, but how good can we be.” Servais found out. He wasn’t quite on a par with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s 2007 forecast that the iPhone was never going to get any significant market share. But the words will find a place in local infamy. (Hey, I may have written one or two columns where a prediction failed to work as I foresaw.) The topic of credibility came to mind not only because of the anniversary, but from something majority owner John Stanton said. In an interview with the Seattle Times’ Ryan Divish published this week, Stanton mused about how he squares up the Mariners’ “step-back” strategy for long-term success with a fan base that is historically starved for success. “I don’t want to say we expected (the poor play), but we certainly knew it was a strong possibility when we announced the step-back policy,” Stanton said. “The alternative was we didn’t say it was a step back, did a bunch of things that were baffling to people and then lost credibility. Credibility is really important to me with our fans. “Some number of fans are passionate, and they will be here through thick and thin,

Dick Snow of Marysville lands a nice rainbow trout at Corbett Lake in British Columbia.

No finicky fish here On a recent trip to Corbett Lake in British Columbia, a group of local fly fishermen found trout willing to bite on a variety of patterns By Mike Benbow

Corbett Lake

Special to The Herald

MERRITT, British Columbia — Retired fisheries biologist Curt Kraemer of Marysville was trying to figure out the fish at Corbett Lake during a trip in early May. What were they eating? Where were they in the water column? Were they shallow or deep? It was a little too early for the lake’s biggest insect hatches: either a bug called a Chironomid, also known as a midge, or a Callibaetis mayfly. Chironomids were hatching, but the bugs were small and their numbers were a bit sporadic. So Kraemer anchored in about 31 feet of water, put a leech pattern a few feet behind an indicator on one rod and a midge pattern about 20 feet behind an indicator on another. Where would the fish be? Which fly would they take? Of course, fish grabbed both of the flies. At the same time. That usually creates a conundrum for me, so I never try to fish two rods. But Kraemer handled it with ease. After making sure both fish were

The thing that I enjoyed the most was that on the three days of our trip, I caught fish on 16 different flies.

For more information on Corbett Lake Lodge, its facilities and its services, visit The lake is located 15 minutes from the British Columbia community of Merritt on the Highway 97C connector. Courtney Lake, which is twice the size and also a good fishery, is right next door and is free and open to the public. But it doesn’t allow camping.

well hooked, he set one rod down and landed and released the fish on the other rod. Then he released the second fish. Kraemer’s experience was sort of the story of our trip at Corbett. We caught fish on just about everything just about everywhere if we worked hard enough and were willing to spend enough time. “The thing that I enjoyed the most was that on the three days of our trip, I caught fish on 16 different flies,” Kraemer said.

Just about everything worked to a degree. Nothing was really hot. Kraemer, Dick Snow, also of Marysville, Ron Downing of Granite Falls, and I had gone to check out the pay lake, which has a nice lodge and dining facilities, and rental cabins with kitchens and boats. We wanted to see if the well-known fly-fishing lodge, now under new ownership, would still be a good place for an outing of our flyfishing club. See CORBETT, Page C2

Herald news services MILWAUKEE — They did it in the first inning to set the tone. They did it again in the ninth inning when an extra insurance run was so important for a closer who was being asked to get six outs. And this wasn’t a random occurrence. The duo of leadoff hitter Mallex Smith and No. 2 hitter J.P.

Silvertips to open their 2019-20 season with a pair of home games By Josh Horton


and Portland eight.

Herald Writer

The Western Hockey League released its 20192020 schedule on Wednesday, and the Everett Silvertips begin the season with two home games — against Tri-City on Sept. 20 followed by a game with Victoria on Sept. 21 — before embarking on a four-game road trip. After that, Everett plays seven of its next eight games at Angel of the Winds Arena. The Silvertips will complete their annual Eastern Conference road trip — this year against the Central Division — in two chunks. Everett treks to Lethbridge on Dec. 4 and completes the first part of the swing in Calgary on Dec. 8. The second portion is Dec. 30 in Red Deer and Jan. 1 in Edmonton, with Everett knocking out its two road games against Prince George directly after on Jan. 3-4. Among divisional opponents, the Silvertips play Seattle and Tri-City the most, with 10 meetings apiece. The Silvertips play Spokane nine times

Corbett From Page C1

Corbett is about 71 acres with a number of deep spots to help the fish survive the winter freeze. But more importantly, it’s filled with a number of shallow, weedy shoals that produce a lot of bugs for the fish to eat. In addition to midge and mayfly hatches in the spring, the lake also has plentiful stocks of scuds (freshwater shrimp) and leeches that are available for the fish to eat yearround. In the fall, hopper patterns fished along the shoreline can be very effective. The lake is located about 15 minutes from the community of Merritt, which has all the needed services and facilities, and a warm, sunny climate. Corbett is a 71-acre lake nestled at about 3,500 feet of elevation around two of the largest cattle ranches in Western Canada. Snow said he had a lot of fun there, but that most of his fish were about the same size — 3 to 4 pounds. “I would like to see a few bigger ones,” he said. About 3,600 Kamloops rainbow trout of at least 2 pounds had been planted in the lake last year, and that’s mostly the fish that we caught. At the time we were there, Phillip Rowley, a Canadian lake fishing specialist and author, was giving seminars to a group of anglers. He said the mayflies were getting ready to hatch, but hadn’t started yet. Most of his group was catching fish on Chironomid patterns fished in some of the shallow areas and along the drop-offs. Downing caught fish on Chironomids, too, but also did well with a balanced leech patterns. “I liked that place,” he said, noting it’s an easy drive and a comfortable setting.

Former Seattle Mariner Ben Gamel is congratulated in the dugout after hitting an inside-the-park home run against his former team in the sixth inning of Wednesday’s game in Milwaukee.

minor-league contract selected from Class AAA Tacoma, he got the opportunity to do what hadn’t worked out so well for previous openers Cory Gearrin, Gerson Bautista and Tayler Scott. For just the third time in eight tries, the Mariners got a scoreless inning out of their opener In his 21st major-league appearance and first MLB start, Carasiti walked the first batter he faced, which is never a good thing. But he came back to get Christian Yelich to ground into a fielder’s choice for an out, Mike Moustakas to fly out to the warning track in left and another fielder’s choice for an out from Ryan Braun to end the inning. Carasiti’s scoreless frame lowered the ERA of Mariners’ openers from 19.50 to 16.71. That’s some improvement. The Mariners tacked on another run in the second to provide a little more cushion for Wade LeBlanc to enter as the bulk or Costco pitcher. After a leadoff walk and a steal of second base

and have been for 30 years. But others won’t. I want the fans to believe this is going to be a championship team in the next few years. And to be here, or watching it on television, when we are.” It’s good to hear Stanton wants to be credible with fans, something his CEO predecessor, Howard Lincoln, didn’t prioritize. The fact that Dipoto was up front in October about plans to dump a lot of veterans in exchange for prospects, making 2019 something only a vulture could enjoy (my expression, not his), was good, but really the mandatory minimum that needed to be done. As the team with the longest active absence from the postseason among the four major North American sports, futility transcends all the changes in players, managers, general managers and bobbleheads. More than perhaps any other MLB ownership group, this group has to break form with a tepid past. Because of all the incompetence and treacheries that have gone before him, Stanton can’t just want fans to believe in a future. Down the road, he has to act. The Mariners’ first ownership

by Dee Gordon, Crawford smacked a triple into deep right-center that made it 3-0. LeBlanc cruised through his first four innings of “relief” work. But the Brewers finally figured him out in the fifth inning. Mike Moustakas golfed a low changeup that wasn’t a strike over the wall for a leadoff solo homer. With one out, ex-Mariner Ben Gamel lifted a soft liner toward the left-field foul line. Mariners left fielder Mac Williamson made a diving attempt for it, but came up just short. The ball bounced past him all the way to the wall. Gamel was able to race around the bases for an inside-the-park home run that cut the lead to 3-2. “It happens,” LeBlanc said. “Fortunately, it was less runs than they gave up.” Seattle manager Scott Servais was pleased with the performance of his team, which goes for the three-game sweep Thursday afternoon. “Good ball game,” Servais said. “We had just enough offense to get it done, but the key was really the pitching. “A nice night for our bullpen again and Wade LeBlanc was really sharp, too.”

group (1977-81), led by entertainer Danny Kaye and five local businessmen, was underfunded and overextended. They sold to George Argyros (1981-89), an Orange County real estate developer who cared nothing about Seattle and everything about turning a profit. He sold to Jeff Smulyan (1989-1991), an earnest radio mogul from Indianapolis whose secret agenda (with assent from other MLB owners) was to pull the franchise out of Seattle to Tampa. Then in 1992, Nintendo founder Hiroshi Yamauchi of Japan was surfaced by thenSen. Slade Gorton to cash out Smulyan. Baseball owners, filled with xenophobic fear of a non-American owner, fought the sale hard until shamed nationally into submission. The team’s only run of success — four playoff appearances in seven years — happened under Yamauchi’s tenure. But in the 21 years before his death in 2013, the eccentric billionaire never saw a game in person and never gave more than a cursory few remarks about MLB ownership. He appointed Nintendo of America’s lead counsel, Lincoln, to look after his baseball interests. Lincoln had neither baseball nor retail experience. When NOA inherited the team, its interest was mostly in countryman Ichiro Suzuki and asset appreciation.

Stanton knows the dubious ownership history well. As a born-and-raised lifer here — the first such majority owner in club history — he’s lived it. He’s been a part-owner since 2000, and actively engaged in youth and independent-league baseball. But besides the secondhalf collapse, last year on his watch was a sexual harassment scandal from years past, which included club president Kevin Mather, that tainted the front office. After a single season, Dipoto fired his ballyhooed director of high performance, Dr. Lorena Martin, who is suing for wrongful termination. And Robinson Cano embarrassed himself and the franchise with an 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. Whether Stanton could have done something to avert any of these misdeeds is difficult to say. But he’s the guy now saying he “wants the fans to believe this is going to be a championship team in the next few years.” Acceptance of that desire is a matter of faith, not facts. At best, the faith wanes. If and when the time comes that the Mariners do contend, Stanton and his partners need to honor the indulgences of the disaffected with a playerpayroll checkbook that is nearly as infinite as the baseball sordidness that preceded the moment.

Girl hit by Almora’s foul ball suffered a fractured skull Chicago Tribune The 2-year-old girl hit by Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr.’s foul ball during a game in Houston last month suffered a fractured skull, according to her family’s attorney. Houston lawyer Richard Mithoff said the child sustained a skull fracture with subdural bleeding, brain contusions and brain edema. In the fourth inning of a May 29 game between the Cubs and Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park, Almora lined a foul ball into the seats past the Cubs’ dugout along the third-base line. The girl was sitting on a relative’s lap when the ball hit her in the head. She was rushed to the hospital, where she remained for several days, according to the attorney. In a letter sent Wednesday to the Astros, provided by Mithoff, the attorney wrote: “By way of an update, their daughter sustained a skull fracture when she was struck by the foul ball, with associated subdural bleeding, brain contusions and brain edema. She had a seizure and abnormal EEG at the hospital and is now on medication to prevent further seizures while she continues to recover at home. … Her progress will be reassessed in July, and the (family) hope to have more information then about the residual effects of the injuries.” In a statement also released Wednesday, Mithoff said: “The family’s foremost concern is about the health of their child, but they also wanted me to extend their thanks to the fans and the Astros for their concern.”

Vanderbilt players celebrate after defeating Michigan 8-2 in Game 3 of the College World Series finals Wednesday at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska.

Vanderbilt wins College World Series The Commodores beat Michigan 8-2 to claim their 2nd title in the past 6 seasons. By Eric Olson Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. — Mason Hickman and Jake Eder combined for 14 strikeouts, Vanderbilt knocked out Michigan ace Karl Kauffmann in the fourth inning, and the Commodores won the College World Series with an 8-2 victory in Game 3 of the finals Wednesday night. Vandy (59-12) won its second title in its four CWS appearances, all since 2011. The other one came in 2014. Hickman struck out 10 in six innings and limited the Wolverines (50-22) to one hit after he gave up three in a row to start the game. Kauffmann, making his third start in the CWS, struggled with his control, and Vandy broke open the game with three runs in the third inning and two in the fourth. When Ako Thomas flew out to center to end the game, the Vandy dugout and bullpen emptied and catcher Philip Clarke sprinted to the mound to

embrace Eder. The Commodores were a model of consistency from start to finish this season. They swept the Southeastern Conference regular-season and tournament titles, set the league record for wins, tied the record with 13 draft picks and lost back-to-back games just twice. Freshman Kumar Rocker, who was dominant in two CWS starts for the Commodores, was named Most Outstanding Player. Vandy is the sixth national champion from the SEC since 2009 and 12th overall, second only to the 18 won by the Pac-12 and its previous iterations. At No. 2, Vandy became the highest national seed to win it all since Miami in 2001. The loss ended a surprising postseason run for Michigan, which went from being one of the last four teams picked for the 64-team NCAA Tournament to becoming the first Big Ten team to play in the finals since Ohio State in 1966. Hickman gave up three straight singles to start the game, leading to Michigan’s first run. He retired nine of the next 10, striking out six, and got out of trouble when the Wolverines loaded the bases in the fourth. He retired the last six he faced before turning the game

over to Eder. Hickman fanned nine or more in five of his final six starts and allowed one or fewer runs in nine of his last 13. Though the Commodores brought to Omaha an offense ranked in the top five nationally in the major categories, it was pitching that carried them for most of their stay. Vandy had eight runs on nine hits Wednesday, but its .221 average in six CWS games was the lowest for a national champion in the aluminum bat era that started in 1974. Kauffmann tied a career high with five walks, four coming in a stretch in which six of seven Vandy batters reached base. Jeff Criswell relieved after Kauffman walked Ty Duvall leading off the fourth, and JJ Bleday’s single and Ethan Paul’s sacrifice fly stretched the lead to 6-1. Vandy pitchers combined for a 2.50 ERA over six CWS games. Hickman allowed one earned run and struck out 13 in 12 innings. Rocker, who threw the no-hitter in super regionals that already is part of college baseball lore, gave up two earned runs and fanned 17 in 121⁄3 innings. Closer Tyler Brown threw 72⁄3 shutout innings and recorded three saves.

Durant officially elects free agency By Mark Medina The Mercury News

OAKLAND, Calif. — In what might be another signal of his expected departure, Kevin Durant opted out of his player option that would have paid him $31.5 million to be with the Warriors next season, a league source confirmed to Bay Area News Group. ESPN first reported the news. Durant had planned to opt out of his player option ever since re-signing with the Warriors last summer. It did not become official, though, until Wednesday. Durant had until Saturday to decide. Still, the move formally eliminated any possibility he would not entertain free agency and solely focus on spending next season rehabbing his surgically repaired right Achilles tendon. Durant could have considered that in

hopes of then landing either a five-year deal with the Warriors or a four-year deal next summer. Despite suffering an injury that has often derailed other players’ NBA careers, however, Durant is expected to receive a max contract anywhere he goes in the NBA. The Warriors can re-sign Durant for five years at $221 million. Durant can sign elsewhere for a four-year deal at $164 million. Or the Warriors could agree to a sign-and-trade with Durant so that they receive assets in return. The Warriors have maintained publicly and privately that they have not considered the latter scenario. For now, they remain intent on hoping that Durant re-signs with the team after winning two NBA championships and two Finals MVP awards before his third season soured with rupturing his right Achilles tendon in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

Durant’s possible other suitors, including the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, also have enough cap space to sign him without a sign-and-trade. Durant had surgery on his right Achilles tendon on June 12 at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Dr. Martin O’Malley, who also has been a physician for the Brooklyn Nets and USA Basketball, performed the surgery. He had also performed surgery on Durant’s right foot in the 2014-15 season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Since then, Durant has stayed in New York and it is currently unclear what rehab he has completed since then. Normally, players are immobilized for at least a month before beginning physical therapy. Meanwhile, the Warriors have not released a timetable on his expected return. They would not be surprised, though, if Durant is out for the whole season.


Altidore’s goal lifts U.S. to Gold Cup victory KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Jozy Altidore scored on an overhead kick in his first start for the national team in 20 months, lifting the United States over Panama 1-0 Wednesday night as the Americans finished first in their CONCACAF Gold Cup group. Altidore got the goal from 2 yards following a corner kick in the 66th minute that was redirected by Matt Miazga. Coming back from a hamstring injury that slowed him at the start of training camp, the 29-year-old Altidore scored his 42nd goal in 113 international appearances.

Seattle sets AHL affiliate site PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — Seattle’s new NHL franchise intends to have its American Hockey League affiliate in Palm Springs as part of a new arena proposed for the city. The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and Oak View Group announced plans Wednesday to build a privately funded arena on tribal land in downtown Palm Springs with the intent on serving as the home ice for Seattle’s affiliate. NHL Seattle and OVG have jointly submitted an application for an expansion AHL franchise, the 32nd for the league, which would begin play in the fall of 2021 at the same time Seattle’s NHL franchise

will begin play. The new arena in Palm Springs, California will seat up to 10,000 fans and include an adjoining training facility. The groups hope to begin construction on the arena in February 2020.

Wimbledon seeding announced WIMBLEDON, England — Eight-time champion Roger Federer was seeded No. 2 for Wimbledon, one spot ahead of Rafael Nadal, reversing their positions in the ATP rankings and creating a debate about whether the All England Club’s seeding system should be changed. Top-ranked Novak Djokovic, the defending champion, was seeded No. 1 on Wednesday at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament, where recent results on the surface are used to help determine seedings. The other majors do not do that. This year’s women’s seedings at the All England Club strictly follow the WTA rankings, so French Open champion Ash Barty is at No. 1. Naomi Osaka is No. 2, followed by Karolina Pliskova. Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams is seeded 11th, the same place she holds in this week’s rankings. A year ago, early in her return to the tour after having a baby, Williams was ranked just 183rd but seeded 25th. Herald news services

‘Ophelia’ unsteadily revisits Ready-made family ‘Hamlet’ from female perspective requires meeting EX-ETIQUETTE | Jann Blackstone

of the minds


Daisy Ridley (left) and Naomi Watts star in “Ophelia.”

By Robert Horton


Herald movie critic


ave you ever walked out of production of “Hamlet” and thought to yourself, “But what about Ophelia’s truth?” Perhaps a new Shakespeareinspired movie might do the trick. Poor Ophelia, Hamlet’s troubled love, takes the spotlight in a movie based on Lisa Klein’s 2006 novel. “Ophelia” stars Daisy Ridley, doing a variation on her “Star Wars” character, embodying intelligence, pluck and a strong disinclination to behave the way men wish she would. She’s also fond of Hamlet (George McKay). Bad time for dating, though, as the Prince of Denmark is pretty steamed about his royal mother Gertrud (Naomi Watts) marrying his dead father’s brother Claudius (Clive Owen). In much the way that Tom Stoppard’s classic “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” re-imagined “Hamlet” by occasionally intersecting with Shakespeare’s scenes, “Ophelia” strays into the

“Ophelia” ★★ “Hamlet” re-visited from the perspective of Ophelia (Daisy Ridley), whose concern for the Prince of Denmark (George McKay) gets lost in the nasty royal in-fighting. Some interesting touches along the way, and strong work from Naomi Watts and Clive Owen, but this one succeeds neither as potboiler nor quasi-Shakespeare.

In the Season 1 finale of the drama series “In the Dark,” things begin to take an interesting turn between Murphy and Dean. (9 p.m., The CW).

out of various herbs and spices. This subplot does allow for one of the movie’s cleverest twists. It has to do with how Ophelia manages to stick around longer than she does in Shakespeare’s play, where (400-year-old spoiler alert) she unceremoniously exits the story via a watery — Chuck Barney, death.

note. Watts is strong (she’d be an excellent Queen in a straight Shakespeare film), and “Harry Potter” regular Tom Felton is briefly effective as hot-headed Laertes. Clive Owen is locked in battle with a belligerent wig through most of his performance, but he manages to burn a hole in the screen anyway. Why is this coolest of actors not in more top-line projects? Director Claire McCarthy captures a handful of intense moments, including the staging of Hamlet’s play-within-the-play as shadow theater. But most of “Ophelia” plays in a generic TV style, a kind of “Game of Thrones Meets the Bard.” Despite the best intentions, it succeeds neither as potboiler nor as quasi-Shakespeare.

Online subscriptions: Today’s puzzle and more than 7,000 past puzzles, ($39.95 a year). Read about and comment on each puzzle:

How do I get past the fact that my live-in boyfriend still wants to hang with his daughter’s mother for special occasions? His daughter just graduated the 8th grade and I had to endure a celebration from hell. Family from both sides were there reminiscing about stuff I had no interest in — I felt like a complete outsider and this guy expects me to accept all this and live with him. I have no children, but I would like to start a family. Am I off base here? This doesn’t seem right. What’s good ex-etiquette? Off base is not really the issue. You are coming from two different places and unless you have a meeting of the minds it’s simply not going to work out. Living with someone who has children is not like “first time” relationships — many of the rules you are expecting, like leaving the past behind and starting fresh with you, have a different face. He may be able to start fresh from the standpoint that you are his life partner, but his past will also linger. He has young children and they will be a priority. With his children come their mother and although she may not be part of your every day lives, she will most likely be present for milestones, like graduations, as well as her extended family. They are his child’s aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Cousins can be quite close, as well. Two graduation parties are an alternative, but if that wasn’t in the cards before you got there, making it

happen now will be a problem. It will appear to be all your fault and resentment is sure to set in. You may not care if you upset the ex or even his child, but your guy is in the middle of it. So here’s the good news — if you frame it as such. It sounds like he’s trying to integrate you into the fold if you have been invited to celebrate with his daughter and extended family, so he’s doing what he can do. This is it. Take a look at your life. If this is something you can accept — and be a positive influence — then you’re fine. If it’s not, if you’re looking for that first time everything, he’s not the guy for you. For example, if you have kids together, he will want to integrate your kids with the kids he already has — they will be siblings. He will not like your kids best. He will want to celebrate special milestones when his kids are scheduled to be with him. His life is a juggling act, at least for now. You will always be checking with someone else to coordinate efforts, to plan special occasions, holidays, and life in general. If you felt the graduation party was the celebration from hell, that will be your life, and your attitude will color the occasion. It’s up to you, really. He doesn’t have much choice in the matter. His kids are here and ex-etiquette for parents rule No. 1 is, “Put the children first.” He is. You can help or you can hinder. That’s good ex-etiquette.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Thursday, June 27, the 178th day of 2019. There are 187 days left in the year. Today’s highlight: On June 27, 1991, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first black jurist to sit on the nation’s highest court, announced his retirement. (His departure led to the contentious nomination of Clarence Thomas to succeed him.) On this date: In 1844, Mormon leader Joseph Smith and his brother, Hyrum, were killed by a mob in Carthage, Illinois. In 1846, New York and Boston were linked by telegraph wires. In 1880, author-lecturer Helen Keller, who lived most of her life without sight or hearing, was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama. In 1974, President Richard Nixon opened an official visit to the Soviet Union. In 1990, NASA announced that a flaw in the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope was preventing the instrument from achieving optimum focus. (The problem was traced to a mirror that had not been ground to exact specifications; corrective optics were later installed to fix the problem.) Today’s birthdays: Business executive Ross Perot is 89. Former Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt is 81. Singer-musician Bruce Johnston (The Beach Boys) is 77. Actress Madylin Sweeten is 28. Pop singer Lauren Jauregui (Fifth Harmony) (TV: “The X Factor”) is 23. R&B singer H.E.R. is 22. Actor Chandler Riggs is 20. Thought for today: “The main dangers in this life are the people who want to change everything — or nothing.” — Viscountess Nancy Astor, Americanborn British politician (1879-1964). — Associated Press

5. “Cut to the ____” (5) Answer________ 6. “A piece of ____” (4) Answer________ 7. “Eat ____ pie” (6) Answer________ 8. “Come out ___ “ (8) Answer________ 9. “High on the ____” (3) Answer________ ANSWERS: 1.
