Emergency fire order issued for Chugach National Forest

In the news Several Skilak campgrounds reopened Several recreation sites in the Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area reopened Monday, due to a reduction in risk posed by the Swan Lake Fire. Lower Ohmer Campground, Upper Skilak Lake Campground and Lower Skilak Campground are all reopened. The Upper Ohmer Lake Cabin and both the Upper and Lower Ohmer Lakes are also reopened. Fire danger is still high and visitors need to be cautious.

High river conditions expected on Kenai and Sixmile River High water conditions are expected across Alaska and on the western Kenai Peninsula, according to a special weather statement from the National Weather Service. The warning includes the Kenai River Sixmile River and the communities of Kenai, Soldotna, Homer, Cooper Landing, Whittier, Seward and Moose Pass. Water levels are expected to continue or rise into action stage and bank-full conditions through the weekend. No significant impacts are expected along any of the rivers, the advisory said. Other rivers receiving a high water warning include the Matanuska, Skwentna, Klutina and Talkeetna River. Eagle River, near Anchorage, is experienced elevated water conditions. Those attempting to cross the river should prepare for high, swift water, according to the advisory. — Victoria Petersen

Dunleavy tours fire scene as blaze grows By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Gov. Mike Dunleavy visited the Kenai Peninsula Monday to meet with fire crews and personnel battling the Swan Lake Fire north of Sterling. Dunleavy met with the in-

cident commander, state and federal officials and on-scene fire crews, and attended a status meeting at the incident command in Sterling, spokesman Matt Shuckerow said in an email. Shuckerow said Dunleavy focused on learning about the fire, hearing more about

the state and federal response efforts, and thanking those working to contain the blaze. As of Monday, the Swan Lake Fire had grown to more than 70,330 acres, or around 110 square miles, according to a Monday update from the Alaska Incident Management Team.

The fire is slowly moving northeast. Nearly 500 personnel are making progress on the fire, with about 15% of it contained. Warm and dry weather is testing fire lines, as well as dry black spruce. Fire con-

The Chugach National Forest has issued an emergency fire order for the Kenai Peninsula area, according to a press release from the Chugach National Forest Supervisor office. The restrictions apply to building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire or stove fire, including charcoal, on the Chugach National Forest, with the exception of the Nellie Juan/College Fiord Wilderness Study Area and the Cordova Ranger District, the release said. The emergency order went into effect Monday and will continue until the See ORDER, page A3

UA begins sending furlough notices to staff By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU — Furlough notices were being sent Monday to about 2,500 University of Alaska staff, part of the fallout of Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s veto of $130 million for the sys-

tem. University system President Jim Johnsen last week said the cut, if it stands, would be devastating. The veto is on top of a $5 million reduction authorized by lawmakers, and Johnsen said it follows a series of cuts in recent years.

The notices, warning of 10 furlough days, were being sent Monday, said Monique Musick, a spokeswoman for the university system. Johnsen also said the system is instituting hiring, travel and contract freezes. Johnsen, in a letter to

the university community, said the cut was targeted at the campuses in Anchorage and Fairbanks and statewide administration. He has asked university supporters to contact lawmakers and urge them to override the veto, which would require 45 of the

Legislature’s 60 members. Absent an override, Johnsen said he will prepare for consideration by the Board of Regents a declaration that would allow the university “to more rapidly discontinue programs and academic units, and to start See UA, page A2

Kenai Joe’s Taphouse opens in Old Town By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Kenai River Brewing’s newest project, Kenai Joe’s Taphouse, had a soft opening Monday. The bar is being housed in the old Kenai Joe’s bar, the peninsula’s oldest watering hole. Kenai Joe’s opened in 1935, and Kenai River Brewing Company owner, Doug Hogue, is keeping the name alive. “We really appreciated that history and wanted to keep the spirit of it,” Hogue said. Earlier this year, Hogue bought the historic Kenai Joe’s bar in Kenai’s Old Town. Joe Gilman, Colton Hertog and Kara McCormick of Kenai River Brewing own the bar’s liquor license.

Melted Alaska sea ice alarms coastal residents, scientists ANCHORAGE (AP) — Sea ice along northern Alaska disappeared far earlier than normal this spring, alarming coastal residents who rely on wildlife and fish. Ice melted as a result of exceptionally warm ocean temperatures, the Anchorage Daily News reported. The early melting has been “crazy,” said Janet Mitchell of Kivalina. Hunters from her family in early June traveled more than 50 miles by

boat to find bearded seals on sea ice. Bearded seals in the past could be hunted just outside the village but sea ice had receded far to the north. “We didn’t know if we’d have our winter food,” she said. “That was scary.” The hunters ran out of gas after harvesting eight seals and a walrus. They were able to call other residents to deliver fuel, Mitchell said. Rick Thoman, a climatologist with the Alaska

Center for Climate Assessment & Policy at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, posted on social media last week that the northern Bering and southern Chukchi seas are “baking.” Sea surface temperatures last week were as high as 9 degrees above the 1981-2010 average, reaching into the lower 60s, he said, with effects on the climate system, food web, communities and commerce.

Borough to consider shifting chief admin duties to manager By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

An ordinance being introduced at Tuesday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting will consider a manager plan of government, which would move the position of chief administrator for the borough from the mayor to a borough manager. Sponsored by assembly members Hal Smalley and Kelly Cooper, the ordinance would allow the assembly to appoint a borough manager through

a majority vote. In a June 20 memo from Cooper and Smalley to the assembly, they said the mayor would still be elected area wide, but would no longer be the chief administrator. “The mayor would serve as chair of the assembly, still be able to participate in assembly discussions, may vote on assembly actions in the case of a tie and may veto assembly actions,” the memo states. The memo says the See ADMIN, page A3

the unprecedented process of removing tenured faculty.” The university was among the areas hit by vetoes. Other areas include health and social service, education and environmental programs and public broadcasting. Dunleavy vetoed funding for the Ocean Rangers program, created by an initiative in 2006 and calling for onboard observers on certain large cruise ships monitoring compliance with discharge requirements. The program is funded through fees. Joe Geldhof, an attorney involved in the 2006 initiative, said Dunleavy’s veto of Ocean Rangers money doesn’t wipe the law creating the program off the books. He called it a political mistake. “It’s not like we don’t need enforcement,” he said, adding later: “If he had problems with how the Ocean Ranger program was being administered, then make it more efficient. Don’t just veto the money from it.” House Minority Leader Lance Pruitt, an Anchorage Republican, in a statement Friday said if his 15-member caucus decides to revisit any of Dunleavy’s cuts, it wants to do so through a separate budget bill rather than an override. In an interview Monday,

Showers and thunderstorms will be most common from Texas and Louisiana to Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Montana today. Storms will dot Florida and showers may pester Washington. Most other areas will be dry.

and quality liquor has been brought in. “You can get a well drink and you’ll be super happy with it,” he said. The bar will be open while an extension is built on the side of the building. The extension will hold a large kitchen. More construction will take place later this year to redo the back of the current facility, including upgrading bathrooms. Hogue said his team is

staying “low-key,” but he hopes to be completely open by December. When the kitchen is constructed and ready to use, the taphouse will expand its menu. Fans of Kenai River Brewing Company’s fare will be happy to hear the company’s classic burgers and wings will find their way to the Kenai Joe’s Taphouse menu. Hogue hopes to introduce some other entrees, like steaks, seafood and pasta dishes. “You can come in and have

a nice meal or a fancy meal,” Hogue said. With the opening of the taphouse, the peninsula will have a new music venue and feature regular live shows. “We will start easing into a music program and have live music and get a nice, new scene going on here,” Hogue said. Hogue said the bar will most likely stay open from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week at 800 Cook Ave. in Old Town Kenai.

he said it would be political gamesmanship and an effort to make members look bad if a joint session to consider overrides was called and leaders knew they lacked sufficient votes to overturn Dunleavy’s cuts. “That doesn’t show that you’re truly trying to work with people to come to something that’s best for Alaska. It’s you trying to humiliate them and their communities,” he said. Democratic Rep. Adam Wool of Fairbanks said Monday he hopes common sense prevails and the university cut in particular is overridden. The overall cut to the university system this year,

with the veto, would be in line with what Dunleavy proposed previously. Wool said he thought Dunleavy’s initial proposal was “crazy talk.” “We have to push back against this,” Wool said. “It’s his first year, and he’s trying to see what he can get away with and how hard he can push us, I guess.” Dunleavy took office in December. One of his major campaign proposals was a payout of a full dividend to residents from the state’s oil-wealth fund, the Alaska Permanent Fund. A full payout would cost an estimated $1.9 billion and equate to checks of about $3,000 this year. Many legislators say

that’s not sustainable, as the state has begun using fund earnings, long used to pay dividends, to also help cover government costs and with no serious consideration of new statewide taxes or changes to existing ones. The state has struggled for years with a deficit that’s persisted amid low to middling oil prices. The dividend is the focus of a special session scheduled to start next Monday. Dunleavy and legislative leaders have clashed over the location of the special session. The constitution states the Legislature has five days after convening a special session to take up any vetoes.

bue and Norton sounds were warmest but the heat extended far out into the ocean. The warmth is weeks ahead of schedule and part of a “positive feedback loop” compounded by climate change. Rising ocean temperatures have led to less sea ice, which leads to warmer ocean temperatures, he said. The last five years have produced the warmest seasurface temperatures on record in the region, contributing to record low sea-ice levels. “The waters are warmer than last year at this time, and that was an extremely warm year,” Thoman said. Lisa Sheffield Guy of the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States oversees an online platform that allows Alaska Native walrus hunters to share

tips on sea ice, weather and hunting. The need for reporting ended May 31 because coastal sea ice had melted. “When we started in 2010, we would go until the last week of June,” she said. Guy is a seabird biologist who studied birds on St. Lawrence Island south of the Bering Strait. She’s worried that warmer temperatures will make it harder for seabirds to find the tiny seafood they eat, she said. The heat might push their prey deeper or away from the area. Warmer ocean temperatures come as hunters report large numbers of dead seals off Alaska’s western and northern coasts, Thoman said. An unusually large number of dead gray whales have also been found off Alaska’s southern coasts, where sea surface temperatures are also unusually high, Thoman said. It’s not known whether the warm water has contributed, Thoman said.

The winner does not need to be present to win. Drawing held Sept. 18 at the Ninilchik Senior Center. “Certainly it’s all happening at the same time,” he said. In March, the high temperatures were blamed for a large ice shelf breaking from the coast near Nome in March, dragging tethered crab pots. Nick Treinen lost two crab pots and others lost more. “It was unprecedented for March,” he said. The ice also swept away

gold mining equipment, forcing a helicopter rescue for three miners who unsuccessfully tried to save it. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will conduct an unusually extensive fish survey in the Bering Strait this summer, Thoman said. It could provide clues for possible impacts to Bering Sea fisheries, he said.

What others say

Obama’s economic legacy continues to wreak havoc In case you missed it, Quicken

Loans this month agreed to pay a token $32 million to settle a dubious housing lawsuit initiated by the Obama Justice Department. The real scandal is how the Obama Administration extracted billions from mortgage lenders for sloppy underwriting on government-insured loans while loosening loan standards and setting up taxpayers for losses. In 2015 the Justice Department sued Quicken under the False Claims Act for originating government-insured loans that allegedly didn’t comply with Federal Housing Administration standards. Justice cherry-picked about 100 of the 250,000 or so FHA-insured mortgages that Quicken made between 2007 and 2011 that ostensibly overstated borrowers’ income, among other underwriting lapses. Yet the FHA has made more in fees and premiums on Quicken mortgages than it paid out, so the government wasn’t harmed. Quicken also has among the lowest default rates of all large FHA lenders. A mere 0.66% of its FHA-insured loans are seriously delinquent compared to the U.S. average of 1.43%. Banks forked over more than $7 billion when Justice passed the offertory plate, but Quicken fought back. Federal Judge Mark Goldsmith this spring ordered the two parties to mediation after significantly narrowing Justice’s claims. Although Quicken founder Dan Gilbert had said he wouldn’t settle, the $32 million is less than 0.03% of the $108 billion in FHA loans it has made since 2007 and is a small price for avoiding a trial. Meantime, the lawsuits have crimped the FHA’s business. JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon noted in 2017 that False Claims Act litigation “made FHA lending risky and cost prohibitive for many banks” and “led us to scale back our participation in the FHA lending program in favor of less burdensome lending programs.” Nineteen of the 20 top FHA lenders are now non-banks. While more lending has moved online, banks may be better situated to make loans in low-income communities where they have branches. Banks also have more credit and income data on customers that can enable them to do better underwriting. FHA insures mortgages with down payments as low as 3.5% on loans up to $727,000. The government insurer is supposed to make it easier for low-income folks to purchase a home, and its underwriting standards are lower than private insurers. But to bring in more business, the Obama Administration eased underwriting standards even more. In 2016 the FHA rescinded a rule requiring manual underwriting for borrowers with credit scores below 620 and a debt-to-income ratio exceeding 43%. Non-bank lenders have since been making more and more FHA-insured loans to low-income customers for more and more expensive homes. What could go wrong? A quarter of FHA-insured borrowers have payments that exceed half of their income — more than at the peak of the housing bubble. The average borrower credit score has declined to 670, the lowest since 2008. Santa Ana, California last week announced $80,000 in down-payment assistance for first-time buyers. Defaults have been declining, but that’s because wages are rising while home prices have increased about 5% to 6% on average for the last five years. If the economy and home prices take a turn for the worse, FHA’s 2.8% capital cushion might not cover losses and taxpayers could wind up as the backstop. Count this as another way Team Obama’s policies continue to do economic damage. — The Wall Street Journal, June 23

A tragedy of the commons in the making A laska V oices L arry P ersily Alaskans are familiar with managing the state’s resources for the common good. We pride ourselves on it. And, with less pride, we’re also familiar with community tragedies, such as inadequate funding for substance abuse treatment, sexual assault response and child protective services. Maybe the answer to the current Alaska Permanent Fund dividend debate lies in thinking of common good and tragedies together. There is a conventional economic wisdom called “Tragedy of the Commons,” in which individuals see an incentive to consume a common resource before everyone else gets to it. The me-first approach results in overconsumption, underinvestment and, ultimately, exhaustion of the resource. The tragedy is the long-term community good losing the battle to shortterm individual interests. A painful example is the collapse of the North Atlantic cod fisheries from too many boats trying to catch too many fish before someone else gets the fish. Individuals profited in the short term, while the common good suffered in the long term. History teaches us similar lessons of resource battles over water rights and grazing lands. Isn’t the fight over the size of the permanent fund dividend similar? Get the most money you can before your community uses more of it for

schools, roads and other public services? Supporters of a big dividend say it’s their money. But paying that big individual dividend every year means cutting back on common services and drawing down the permanent fund faster than it can earn money. It means letting others deal with the problem when the resource savings — the commons — are depleted. It means jeopardizing the future of our communities. As with the cod fisheries, let someone else suffer the consequences of the tragedy. As legislators and big-dividend advocates call the check a “birthright” or “my money,” they put the dividend ahead of long-term investments in education, public safety, health, housing, roads and all the other commons of our communities. It sounds like we have a Tragedy of the Commons in the making if we continue to follow an outdated, 37-year-old dividend formula and its $3,000 calculation, even if it means overdrawing the permanent fund and putting it at risk. Can we avoid a tragedy in Alaska? The late Elinor Ostrom won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 2009, the first woman to earn this distinction. Ostrom is recognized for her work in understanding how communities share common resources. She argued that communities can overcome the supposed inevitability of the Tragedy of the Commons by successfully managing shared resources into future. It requires good management, limitations on using the resource and community involvement in decisionmaking.

Most scholarly work into the Tragedy of the Commons deals with natural resources, such as grazing land, fish or water for irrigation. But in Alaska, where the permanent fund is the result of our common resources, it makes sense to think of the dollars in the fund the same as oil in the ground. Produce the oil at a managed pace to maximize recovery. Don’t risk overdrawing the resource by taking out too much, too quickly, for immediate benefits. Taking more money out of the permanent fund to pay big dividends beyond what the fund can realistically earn each year is not sustainable. Devoting more to individual dividends than common benefits cheats the future of our state. Alaskans may own a new pickup truck but lack a job or a good school for their children if we weaken our communities and our long-term economic health. As legislators and the governor debate the size of this year’s permanent fund dividend and a structure for determining the amount of future dividends, the goal should be finding a formula that is sustainable for the common good over the long term. Picking a high number to satisfy last year’s campaign promises, political wants and individual demands would be a tragedy.

dustries and unique way of life. These concerns were heightened with the Aug. 4, 2014 catastrophic tailings dam failure at nearby Mount Polley Mine in the Fraser River. Kudos to you Ryan Peterson for such a well done film, thank you. It has me wondering if these are some of the reasons for the low return of salmon to these regions. I am a “no” vote on Pebble Mine. Alaskans should be allowed to vote on this issue.

have a collective responsibility to manage a cornucopia of valuable resources that were given to the people of Alaska to develop and sell on the world market as a means of supporting our schools and other governmental needs. Not one course has been developed to educate Alaskans on how to determine fair market value for the resources industries around the world are taking from us. If 10,000 Alaskans were able to calculate market value for Prudhoe Bay’s oil, we would be getting billions more for our oil, and the university would be funded. That said, today would be a good day to start such a course.

Letters to the Editor A disaster for Bristol Bay I attended the rally that was held by Defend Bristol Bay in Soldotna outside Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s office on June 26. There was a lot of horn honking and thumbs up. Had a great time waving signs with all of you. I would like to thank all those involved in Defend Bristol Bay. Thanks for giving us a channel to be heard. Thanks also for your website It made it a lot easier for me to participate and send public comment messages to our Army Corps of Engineers and our representatives. Knowing you are there makes me feel hopeful that we are being heard. Thank you for all your hard work and your time to get this message out there. Man will never be able to duplicate what has taken Mother Nature thousands of years to create. It’s a very delicate balance when it comes down to our fisheries habitat and mining. PLEASE watch this documentary, “Xboundary from Salmon Beyond Borders” at and judge for yourselves. It speaks volumes to the inherited damage that can be caused from these operations and how this company responded to it. Ryan Peterson’s film explores the large-scale open-pit mining boom currently underway in northwest British Columbia, Canada. The size and location of the mines — at the headwaters of major salmon rivers that flow across the border into Alaska — has had Alaskans concerned for years over risks posed to their $2 billion fishing and tourism in-

Nation/World At DMZ, step into history for Trump as he offers hand to Kim mit in Vietnam in February. Significant doubts remain, though, about the future of the negotiations and the North’s willingness to give up its stockpile of nuclear weapons . The border encounter was a made-for television moment. The men strode toward one another from opposite sides of the Joint Security Area and shook hands over the raised patch of concrete at the Military Demarcation Line as cameras clicked and photographers jostled to capture the scene. After asking if Kim wanted him to cross, Trump took 10 steps into the North with Kim at his side, then escorted Kim back to the South for talks at Freedom House, where they agreed to revive the stalled negotiations. The spectacle marked the latest milestone in two years


PANMUNJOM, Korea — With wide grins and a historic handshake, President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un met at the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone on Sunday and agreed to revive talks on the pariah nation’s nuclear program. Trump, pressing his bid for a legacy-defining deal, became the first sitting American leader to step into North Korea. What was intended to be an impromptu exchange of pleasantries turned into a 50-minute meeting, another historic first in the yearlong rapprochement between the two technically warring nations. It marked a return to face-to-face contact between the leaders after talks broke down during a sum-

of roller-coaster diplomacy between the two nations. Personal taunts of “Little Rocket Man” (by Trump) and “mentally deranged U.S. dotard” (by Kim) and threats to destroy one other have given way to on-again,

off-again talks, professions of love and flowery letters. “I was proud to step over the line,” Trump told Kim as they met in on the South Korean side of the truce village of Panmunjom. “It is a great day for the world.”

months in bid to keep oil prices from sagging as the oil cartel faces a weakening outlook for global demand. The decision among the members of the Organization of the Petroleum


VIENNA — OPEC is extending its deal to cut production for another nine

Exporting Countries came during a meeting Monday at the cartel’s headquarters in Vienna. Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih said “the commitment to a nine-month extension is unequivocal, very solid, very strong” among OPEC members. He said he expected non-member producing countries such as Russia to join in extending the cuts at a separate meeting on Tuesday. Russian President Vladimir Putin has already said he backs an extension. The current deal to support prices reduced production by 1.2 million barrels per day starting from Jan. 1 for six months, and will now run into next year.

Most of the cuts came from OPEC nations, who agreed to reduce 800,000 barrels per day, with the rest of the cuts coming from Russia and other non-OPEC countries, though not from the United States. The cuts were aimed to put upward pressure on the price of oil and reduce oversupply. “This more than compensates for whatever demand concerns that investors have been experiencing in recent months,” said Pavel Molchanov, energy analyst at Raymond James. He noted that global demand could fall by 200,000 to 300,000 barrels per day but the OPEC cuts will reduce supply by about 1 million barrels per day.

Delay in 2020 census could gum up finely calibrated planning President Donald Trump said he has asked about delaying the 2020 census over a citizenship question, but experts say any delay could gum up the U.S. Census Bureau’s finely calibrated timetable for the 10-year count. Monday was the deadline to start printing the 600 million documents that will be mailed to 130 million households for next April’s census count. For months, the Trump administration had argued that the courts needed to decide quickly whether the citizenship question could be added to the 2020 census because of the looming deadline. “I think it’s very important to find out if somebody is a citizen as opposed to an illegal,” Trump told reporters Monday. “There’s a big difference to me between being a citizen of the United States and being an illegal.” The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last week that the question couldn’t be added for now. Trump tweeted that he had asked lawyers if the count can be delayed until the court can reevaluate the matter. Julie Iriondo, a bureau spokeswoman, said early Monday that she didn’t know if any printing schedule changes had been decided. From a logistical standpoint, any delay “would be a nightmare,” said John Thompson, who served as Census Bureau director during President Barack Obama’s second term. The bureau is already in the process of signing almost 250 office leases across the U.S. and has hired 1,500 specialists who partner with community organizations to encourage people to participate in the census. More than 170,000 recruits have already filled out applications for the almost half-million positions being created for the count. The bureau has helped set up more than 1,500 committees nationwide that will work to get everyone to respond. Furthermore, Congress would have to change the law for the count to be delayed because Title 13 of the U.S. Code mandates that it take place on April 1, 2020, Thompson said. “I don’t think there’s any ambiguity, but I’m not a lawyer,” Thompson said. Fewer people are expected to fill out the questionnaires using paper than in years past because the bureau for the first time is relying on most respondents to use the internet to answer questions. Still, printed postcards and letters will be sent out next March reminding residents it’s time to answer the questionnaire, and those who don’t respond digitally will be mailed paper questionnaires. As recently as last week, the Trump administration’s solicitor general wrote in court papers that the Census Bureau needed to finalize the questions by June. Any changes to the paper questionnaire after June would impair the bureau’s ability to conduct the count in a timely manner, wrote Noel Francisco. — The Associated Press

Oilers top Pilots, snap 6-game skid By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

The Peninsula Oilers defeated the Anchorage Glacier Pilots 6-5 in 10 innings Monday in Alaska Baseball League action at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai. The win snapped a sixgame losing streak for the Oilers. Peninsula moves to 8-16 and is in fourth place in the league, 8.5 games behind the league-leading Anchorage Bucs. The Pilots came up just short in their attempt to sweep the five-game series and sit at 13-10, in third in the league just a game behind the Mat-Su Miners and three games behind the Bucs. The Miners and Chinooks were still playing

Monday night as the Clarion went to press. Monday’s win was a roller-coaster ride, with the Oilers jumping out to a 3-0 lead only to fall behind 4-3, come back to tie it in the sixth, fall behind in the eighth, tie it in the ninth and win it in the 10th. Pilots starter Matthew Sanchez came into the game red-hot, but the Oilers got to him for his first run in 17 innings in the bottom of the third. Connor McCord walked with the bases loaded for the first run, then Giancarlos Servin had a two-run double for a 3-0 lead. Oilers starter Jacob Reed was solid, going six innings and giving up eight hits and four runs — one earned. The Pilots rallied on Reed

in the fifth, with Matt Ottino knocking in two for his 10th and 11th RBIs of this series. Zach Morgan then singled in Ottino, who had multiple hits in each game of the series, for a 4-3 lead. The Oilers knotted the game at four in the sixth, starting the inning with three straight singles. Skyler Messinger singled to tie the game, but the Pilots brought in closer Hunter Rigsby to work out of the one-out, bases-loaded jam. In the eighth, Ottino struck again, singling and stealing second. EJ Andrews, who had the gamewinning hit Sunday, then singled in Ottino. In the ninth, the Oilers were able to get to Higsby for his first run of the season when Servin singled to

score Victor Carlino. In the 10th, Andrews, normally an outfielder, was brought in for his second appearance of the season and the Oilers pounced. Drew Thorpe led off with a double and scored on a single by Messinger. Bringing more good news to the Oilers was the work of relievers Jonathan Carlos and Heath Olive, who had been battling injuries. They combined to pitch four innings and yield one run, with Olive getting the win. The win was needed after a tough, 3-2 Sunday loss for the Oilers. Oilers head coach Kyle Brown has lost eight players due to injury and a few other reasons in the last week, though Carlos and Olive

Putting spotlight on addiction On hot, dusty night of racing, McGahan promotes Racing for Recovery By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

Mashing the gas and ripping the fence at Twin City Raceway in Kenai will get the adrenaline pumping for any race car driver. For Nikiski’s Aaron McGahan, it has also served as a useful tool for battling addiction and helping others who suffer the same plight. McGahan is the founder of Racing for Recovery, a fledgling organization for those working through addiction. “We use racing to help people,” McGahan said Saturday in the pit area at the three-eighths-mile dirt oval. McGahan said the mission of Racing for Recovery is to use racing to unite people who have suffered through addiction. McGahan said he plans to purchase a piece of land near the raceway on the Kenai Spur Highway and use an existing structure as a sober living house. He hopes that those struggling with addiction will be able to stay at the location to sort out their lives. “When they make that decision, they can come to us,” he said. McGahan, 41, is a second-generation racer who currently pilots the No. 29 Sprint Car at Twin City Raceway. His father, Elton, drives the No. 74 Sprint machine, and on Saturday, won all three heats going away. Aaron McGahan cracked a rear end casing in the first heat of the night and was forced to retire. Saturday saw four divisions sling dirt — the A-Stocks, Legends, Sprint Cars and a new category called Dollar Stocks, which resembles more of a group of buddies rallying a collection of junk cars in their backyard. McGahan used the night of racing to promote RFR, and his Sprint Car displayed on one side the slogan, “Smoke Tires, Not Drugs,” and on the other, dozens of names written by those that have experienced and recovered from addiction. McGahan explained that he struggled with alcohol abuse as a young man and it consumed his life. “I was a fifth a day kind of guy,”

McGahan explained. On the morning of Oct. 23, 2015, McGahan said he was hit head-on by a drunk driver. McGahan himself was sober. The accident played a key role in forcing McGahan to realize why addiction is something he had to tackle. Starting Feb. 9, 2016, McGahan became sober with the help of his girlfriend and mother, and hopped a flight to a rehab facility in Texas for several months. “They said it usually takes people days to settle in and deal with it,” he said. “I was like, ‘No, let’s go now!’ and we got into the groups.” When he came home to Nikiski, McGahan continued going to meetings and re-establishing friendships, and began working on his beloved 1964 MG Model B, an English roadster. “A buddy of mine asked me one day, ‘When are you going to race for recovery?’” he recounted. “It hit home, because racing’s always been a part of my family.” Since the creation of RFR, McGahan said he has taken every opportunity to get the word out to those that need it. He said during the annual Trunk or Treat event last Halloween in Soldotna, he set up the car to be visited by trick-or-treaters. McGahan said he counted 456 kids that got to check out the race car and get their photo taken with it, which also gives their parents the opportunity to learn about Racing for Recovery. The night featured a slew of gritty racing. With the recent heat wave and hazy skies from the Swan Lake fire, the dirt track required frequent dousings from the water truck, and even then, the track dried up quickly, making for a dusty evening. In the A-Stock division, Soldotna’s Dustin Bass swept the night with two heat wins and the feature victory. In the first heat, Bass emerged the winner over Jeremy Herr in the 1/5 car, then Bass passed Nikiski’s Mady Stichal with just three laps to go in heat two for the win.

Stichal, 15, started racing last year with help from her Nikiski family, and said she is the first of her family to get into racing. Stichal drives the No. 95 machine designed to imitate the Lightning McQueen character from the Disney film “Cars,” and said she decided she wanted to be a racer as a young girl watching racing movies like “Cars,” “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” and the classic “Days of Thunder.” “My family puts in the money to help my dream,” Stichal explained. “I’m trying to get into Sprint Cars, then maybe one day NASCAR.” Stichal has picked up two victories in her time racing at Twin City, both earlier this month in a heat race and a feature. In the Legends class, the action got fierce as Brent Romagoux topped Ty Torkelson in the first race and Bryan Barber took the second heat over Jimmie Hale. The second heat saw David Kusmider spin twice in the No. 55, even while taking the lead between both incidents. Kusmider was simply relieved to avoid colliding with the outside metal wall, just two weeks after pounding the Turn 2 guardrail. Kusmider said he and Romagoux, driver of the No. 6 car, clashed in a heat race two weeks ago, leading to his brutal meeting with the wall. “(Romagoux) passed me on the outside, I went on the inside and passed him back, then he came into Turn 2 there and passed me going for the inside,” Kusmider recalled. “He hit the bumps and knocked me into the wall, and the car bounced off the wall, his car hit the back of my car and spun me like a helicopter in the air. Killed both cars.” Kusmider said he had to replace most of the front end of the car, including part of the frame, costing him around $1,200, although he said the time spent fixing it meant more. “It’s mostly just labor,” Kusmider said. “It probably got about 60 or 70 hours of labor. My two buddies passed me today so it didn’t go fast enough.”

Allie Ostrander, a 2015 graduate of Kenai Central High School, finished 13th in the 3,000-meter steeplechase Sunday at the Prefontaine Classic in Palo Alto, California. In early June, the redshirt junior at Boise State became the first woman to win three straight NCAA Division I steeplechase crowns with her personal-best time of 9 minutes, 37.73 seconds. Sunday marked a step up in competition to the best the world has to offer. Ostrander slashed her personal best to 9:31.44 in finishing 13th and losing her undefeated status in the steeplechase. The race was won by Beatrice Chepkoech of Kenya in 8:55.58, the best time in the world this season. A little under a year ago, Chepkoech set the world record in the event at 8:44.32. Emma Coburn of the

United States finished second in 9:04.90, recovering from a fall during the race. Coburn won the steeple at the 2017 World Championships in London and also earned a bronze medal in the steeple in the 2016 Olympics. The U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association said after the race that Ostrander’s new personal best put her seventh on the list of steeples run by a college athlete at any meet. Thursday, Ostrander was named to the Google Cloud Academic All-America Cross Country/Track and Field First Team, announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Ostrander earned the honor for the second straight year. Ostrander graduated with a degree in kinesiology in May, finishing with a 4.0 cumulative grade-point average.

Klay to stay with Warriors By TIM REYNOLDS AP Basketball Writer

Klay Thompson is staying home with Golden State. Jimmy Butler finally has a new home in Miami. And the wait continues for Kawhi Leonard. Thompson announced his decision to stay with the Golden State Warriors

for $190 million over the next five years, meaning the five-time reigning Western Conference champions have their ‘Splash Brothers’ backcourt of Thompson and Stephen Curry locked up long-term. Thompson made the announcement on social media, using the hashtag “Warrior4life.” See NBA, page A7

. . . Oilers Continued from page A6

The Oilers are looking to bring two pitchers and a catcher up to fill the most needed gaps, but Brown said there is not an ample supply of players available at this date. Sunday showed just how hard getting wins in the ABL can be, as a crucial error by third baseman Bobby Goodloe was a turning point in the game. With the wind sweeping in briskly from right field, both starters gave their teams chances to win. For the Oilers, Eric Reardon went six innings, giving up a run on six hits while walking two and striking out two. “Eric Reardon in the past two starts has been great,” Brown said. “It really helps us when he gets through six innings. It saves the bullpen.” Pilots starter Peyton Carson nearly matched Reardon, going six innings and giving up two runs on four hits while walking two and fanning one. Anchorage head coach Jeff Pritchard said there was no reason to be too fine with the wind blowing in like it was. “We asked him to throw strikes, quality strikes,” Pritchard said. “He controlled his fastball and did just that.” The pitchers also were helped out by some solid defense. The Oilers turned three double plays, while the Pilots turned two. Anchorage left fielder Andrews and right fielder Garrett Spain each had two diving or near-diving plays to corral rockets off Oilers bats. “Their left fielder made plays and their right fielder made plays,” Brown said. “They didn’t make any errors. Give them credit.” The Oilers were able to manufacture a couple of runs, something they struggled with early in the season. In the fourth, Jaden Fein and Messinger started the inning with singles, Thorpe moved the runners with a bunt and John Mackay grounded out to score Fein. In the sixth, McCord reached on a walk, moved to second on a Fein grounder, took third on a balk and scored on a passed ball. “In the past two games, we’ve kind of manufactured runs here and there,” Brown said. “The next stage is getting the big hit.” The Pilots had the big hits in this game, including the only clouts to reach the windprotected wall. Daniel Mendez gets props for his fifthinning blast that managed to defeat the gusts and leave the yard. Pritchard said there is a lot of behindthe-scenes work that goes into improving these players. Mendez’s dedication to getting more extension on his swing paid off. “These guys are athletes first,” Pritchard said. “When they take a concept and turn it into something tactical, it’s very fun to see.” Anchorage entered the top of the eighth down 2-1, but with one away Ottino reached on an error by Goodloe. Then came more big hits. Bradley Gneiting drilled an RBI double into the gap in right center off reliever Servin, then Andrews followed with a game-winning single. Pilots relievers Logan Thomazin and Zach Morgan shut the Oilers down on one hit over the final three innings. Thomazin experienced shoulder soreness and was pulled as a precaution, but Morgan came in midcount and didn’t miss a beat. Brown said his team may have been a little tight in the last three innings. “I asked them, ‘Are they playing to win or not to lose?’” he said. “I’ll let them talk about that one among themselves.” Meanwhile, the Pilots have won four straight and are enjoying life in the Bingo Hilton and at Louie’s Restaurant. Pritchard said this trip could be a turning point in their season. Anchorage looks to sweep the five-game series today at 6 p.m. The eight players out of action as of Sunday for the Oilers were pitcher Joey Becher (shut down due to innings accumulation coming off an injury), pitcher Olive (ankle), pitcher Carlos, infielder Ethan Patrick, center fielder Damon Keith, outfielder Camden Vasquez, catcher Taylor Johnson and catcher Jonathan Villa.

Today in History Today is Tuesday, July 2, the 183rd day of 2019. There are 182 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 2, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law a sweeping civil rights bill passed by Congress. On this date: In 1776, the Continental Congress passed a resolution saying that “these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States.” In 1881, President James A. Garfield was shot by Charles J. Guiteau at the Washington railroad station; Garfield died the following September. (Guiteau was hanged in June 1882.) In 1892, the Populist Party (also known as the People’s Party) opened its first national convention in Omaha, Nebraska. In 1917, rioting erupted in East St. Louis, Illinois, as white mobs attacked black residents; nearly 50 people, mostly blacks, are believed to have died in the violence. In 1937, aviator Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to make the first round-the-world flight along the equator. In 1961, author Ernest Hemingway shot himself to death at his home in Ketchum, Idaho. In 1976, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Gregg v. Georgia, ruled 7-2 the death penalty was not inherently cruel or unusual. In 1977, Russian-American author Vladimir Nabokov, 78, died in Montreux, Switzerland. In 1982, Larry Walters of San Pedro, California, used a lawn chair equipped with 45 helium-filled weather balloons to rise to an altitude of 16,000 feet; he landed eight miles away in Long Beach. In 1987, 18 Mexican immigrants were found dead inside a locked boxcar near Sierra Blanca, Texas, in what authorities called a botched smuggling attempt; a 19th man survived. In 1996, electricity and phone service was knocked out for millions of customers from Canada to the Southwest on a record-hot day. Seven years after they shotgunned their parents to death in the family’s Beverly Hills mansion, Lyle and Erik Menendez were sentenced to life in prison without parole. In 1997, Academy Award-winning actor James Stewart died in Beverly Hills, California, at age 89. Ten years ago: Thousands of U.S. Marines poured into Taliban-controlled villages in southern Afghanistan in the first major operation under President Barack Obama’s strategy to stabilize the country. North Korea test-fired two short-range missiles. The 35-nation International Atomic Energy Agency chose Yukiya Amano of Japan as its next head. Federal marshals took possession of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff’s $7 million Manhattan penthouse, forcing Madoff’s wife, Ruth, to move elsewhere. Five years ago: Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of abducting and killing an Arab teenager and burning his body, sparking hours of clashes in east Jerusalem and drawing charges that the youth was murdered to avenge the killings of three kidnapped Israeli teens. Louis Zamperini, 97, an Olympic runner who survived a bomber crash in the Pacific Ocean, weeks adrift and then years as a Japanese prisoner of war and became the subject of a celebrated book and movie, died in Los Angeles. One year ago: Rescue divers in Thailand found 12 boys and their soccer coach, who had been trapped by flooding as they explored a cave more than a week earlier. President Donald Trump interviewed four prospective Supreme Court justices in his search for a replacement for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Harvey Weinstein was charged with a sex crime against a third woman as New York prosecutors continued building cases against the former Hollywood studio boss. Jackson family patriarch Joseph Jackson was buried in the same Southern California cemetery as his late son Michael. Fresh off a landslide victory, Mexico’s newly elected leftist president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador pledged to “reach an understanding” with Donald Trump. Today’s Birthdays: Former Philippine first lady Imelda Marcos is 90. Jazz musician Ahmad Jamal is 89. Actor Robert Ito is 88. Actress Polly Holliday is 82. Racing Hall of Famer Richard Petty is 82. Former White House chief of staff John H. Sununu is 80. Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is 77. Writerdirector-comedian Larry David is 72. Luci Baines Johnson, daughter of President Lyndon B. Johnson, is 72. Actor Saul Rubinek is 71. Rock musician Roy Bittan (Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band) is 70. Rock musician Gene Taylor is 67. Actress Wendy Schaal is 65. Actress-model Jerry Hall is 63. Actor Jimmy McNichol is 58. Country singer Guy Penrod is 56. Rock musician Dave Parsons (Bush) is 54. Actress Yancy Butler is 49. Contemporary Christian musician Melodee DeVevo (Casting Crowns) is 43. Actor Owain (OH’-wyn) Yeoman is 41. Race car driver Sam Hornish Jr. is 40. NHL center Joe Thornton is 40. Singer Michelle Branch is 36. Actress Vanessa Lee Chester is 35. Figure skater Johnny Weir is 35. Actor Nelson Franklin is 34. Actress-singer Ashley Tisdale is 34. Actress Lindsay Lohan is 33. Actress Margot Robbie is 29. Thought for Today: “The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.” -- Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961).

Unexpected parenthood keeps mismatched couple together gether. Keep in mind that a household where there is conflict is not a healthy environment for a child. DEAR ABBY: My mother passed away a short time ago, and my cousin immediately posted about the funeral on social media without even mentioning me in Abigail Van Buren her post, or asking me how I felt about such a posting. Have people grown so self-centered and uncaring about other people’s feelings that they think posts like this are appropriate without asking the immediate family’s feelings on the matter? It seems to me it’s a self-serving grab for attention and sympathy without any respect for the immediate family of the deceased. I really cannot find a way to forgive her actions. -- HURT AND ANGRY IN THE EAST DEAR HURT: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your mother. What happened is one of the regrettable aspects of living in the 21st century. Your cousin may be part of the generation that thinks every detail of their

on a new life; a discussion between you and another party finally produces a myriad of ideas. If you feel that the odds are stacked in your favor, take a risk. Tonight: With people -- just not alone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You note that tension continually builds around you. Others seek you out for advice. Some people want you to take a more active lead in a mutual concern. Know that how you feel today might change in a few days. If you’re not 100% sure, don’t commit. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You might suddenly see a situation, person or project in a new light. Although you might want to act immediately, hold out for a few days; see whether your insight remains applicable. Recognize that this new insight could involve pursuing a new course. Tonight: Off to the movies. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Break past the obvious conclusions. Like most people, you’ve worked within a certain framework. An event or discussion encourages breaking past a self-imposed restriction. This situation might involve a partner or financial matter. Tonight: Be a duo. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You like stability and plans; however, you’re likely to get just the opposite at present. A loved one or several close associates might be unusually emotional. Regarding plans, be fluid. Plans could easily fall to the wayside. Tonight: Just be an observer. This, too, will change. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Be more forthright in your choices. What comes forward is a health or work issue. You might need to reconstruct your plans or decide on a new course. Don’t fight the inevitable. Tonight: Enjoy the moment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Today’s New Moon could draw circumstances that delight you to no end. You feel as though you’ve been given a second choice. Don’t take the situation as fait accompli; much could change in the next few weeks. Tonight: Letting your hair down.

Go away from the blue light Dear Readers: Looking at the BRIGHT LIGHT on your phone, or reading a book on your tablet or electronic reader at bedtime, can disrupt your natural sleep/wake cycle -- your circadian rhythm. Experts agree that the blue light from these devices can block your body’s ability to produce melatonin, a hormone that tells your body when it’s time to go to sleep. How to strike a balance between staying up to date and not turning in late? Keep your gadgets about 14 inches from your eyes, lower the brightness setting on your device and put down these devices one hour before bed. -- Heloise THIS DOES NOT COMPUTE ... Dear Heloise: I have a complaint about sales that require a person to buy two items to get 50% off the second item. It’s used by drugstores with creams, lotions and personal/beauty supplies. Some things on sale are quite expensive for one. Yes, it’s a bargain if one has both the money and the space to store extras. However, someone on a fixed income or in a small residence cannot take advantage. Why not simply offer 25% off each? Then all of the potential customers can participate in the sale. -- Alexandria, via email Yep. Think about it: You’re not saving half on anything -- you’re saving 25% on each, but you have to buy two! I agree; it’s misleading and confusing. People get excited when they see “SAVE 50%.” But that’s not what’s happening. -- Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars Happy Birthday for Tuesday, July 2, 2019: Today’s Solar Eclipse on your birthday signals a major change in the next year. You’ll like the long-term benefits but could balk at the process involved. Trust that all works out. If single, you could easily witness a change of status. If you’re attached, you and your partner might start developing a new facet of your marriage or bond. You also could make a major change -- for example, a new home, a new family member or a new career opportunity. A fellow CANCER is as emotional as you are. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH Today, you might feel unusually drained and want to stay close to home or work from home. What’s important is not putting too many demands on yourself right now. If you need to, take a nap. Tonight: Consider ordering in. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Surprises happen wherever you tread. You could be taken aback by what occurs, even if you’re the source of it. The importance of communication zooms upward; others need to know what’s going on. Tonight: Chat away. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Presently, just interacting with others could encourage an important insight. You could easily go overboard by indulging yourself and spending today. Your impulsiveness marks your actions. Tonight: Make it your treat. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH At the moment, you could experience intense feelings. You cannot bypass the Solar Eclipse in your sign today. Do your best not to act on what you feel; simply know that all could change in a few minutes. Tonight: Stay centered. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You could feel out of sync in the moment and during most of the day. You might be so deep in thought that you miss a key statement or request. You might not notice that the other party cops an attitude. Tonight: Head home early. Screen calls. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Others could be highly energized.

lives must be put online for consumption by an audience waiting with bated breath. If my guess is accurate, then I agree doing it without first running it by the immediate family was insensitive and thoughtless. Not knowing your cousin, I don’t know whether it was a “self-serving grab for attention.” However, what’s done is done. It’s over. I hope you won’t allow this to ruin your relationship with this relative or your memories of your dear mother. DEAR ABBY: I’ve always wondered when it’s appropriate for a couple to start giving gifts as a couple vs. individually. I’ve seen couples who start early on in their relationship and others who have been together for what feels like forever who still individually give gifts. -- WONDERING IN TEXAS DEAR WONDERING: There are no hard and fast rules about something like this. It may depend on all the circumstances involved, and also may have something to do with how independent from each other the couple is.

DEAR ABBY: Four years ago, I became friends with a co-worker and things took off too fast. Within a couple of months, I became pregnant. We were thrown together without really even knowing each other because, deep down, we wanted a family and decided to stick it out. Well, it’s been a hell of a ride. I ended up having to leave because neither one of us was happy, and it wasn’t the greatest environment to raise our daughter in. I came back a few months later, and we have been trying our best to get along and be great parents for her. But our past issues with each other constantly raise their ugly heads and cause problems that make us want to split up. I have suggested individual and couples counseling, but he isn’t into it, and it’s always a blame game between us. I’m beyond tired of it. My head says go, but my heart says stay. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. -- WEIGHING THE PROS AND CONS DEAR WEIGHING: Your child’s father may prefer to play the blame game because he’s unwilling to own up to his part in the problem. Dragging an unwilling partner to counseling would be unproductive. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go without him. If you do, you will have a clearer understanding about whether and why you should continue living to-

This Minnesota wildlife vet can fix turtle shells, opossum toothaches and more By Erica Pearson Star Tribune (Minneapolis) (TNS)

For an opossum with a toothache, a swan with lead poisoning or a box turtle with a broken shell, Dr. Leslie Reed is a true lifesaver. The veterinarian delights in the sheer variety and challenge that each day brings at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota. There, she has created a dentistry prac-

tice, cultivated a specialty in turtle shell repair and built a training program that draws students from around the world. “I could easily see, between new admits and rechecks, a couple hundred patients a day. From a baby mouse all the way up to a bobcat,” Reed says. Summer is the busiest season at the Roseville hospital. That’s when hurt, sick or abandoned baby animals fill five different nursery rooms, watched

over and fed by volunteers. Reed was born in Minneapolis and grew up in West Des Moines. She was a veterinary student on a University of Iowa field trip when she first visited the nonprofit wildlife center, one of the nation’s busiest with more than 13,000 patients a year. When a position opened in 2009, she moved to the Twin Cities for the job. Now a senior veterinarian and director of vet-

erinary education at the 15,000-square-foot center, she lives with her husband and two children in Ramsey, on a hobby farm with a menagerie of rescued animals. Reed loves wildlife dentistry (“Once you yank that nasty tooth, they just feel so much better,” she says) and frequently works on the teeth of a creature she calls “misunderstood,” “adorable” and her “favorite” — opossums. The sad part about her

Meet Tank This boy has a sad story and all he wants is a new home where he will never have to be stuck on the end of a chain again.

Swans poisoned after nibbling disintegrated lead fishing weights, birds shot by darts or pellet guns, turtles hit by cars. Once Reed and her co-workers get involved, they can often undo much of the damage — giving swans medication that binds to the lead or surgically removing a dart from a mourning dove’s side.
