Body of missing fisherman found ANCHORAGE — The Alaska state medical examiner says a body recovered from the Susitna River was that of a missing 76-year-old Kentucky fisherman. William “Bill” Hartlage of Louisville disappeared last month while fly fishing. A family member on June 27 told Alaska State Troopers that Hartlage left to fish at the mouth of Willow Creek, which dumps into the Susitna, and did not return. Two boat crews and a helicopter launched a search that night. A ground search followed the next day. A boater on July 9 found Hartlage’s partially submerged body about 1 mile upstream of Deshka Landing. State troopers recovered the body.

Fire, smoke, business don’t mix Cooper Landing businesses deal with impacts of the Swan Lake Fire. By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

Smoke from the Swan Lake Fire — which was ignited by lightning June 5 and has grown to over 100,000

acres — has had an effect on several communities in the Southcentral area, from Anchorage to Homer. In the small town of Cooper Landing, winds have blown the fire’s smoke into its valley, affecting the community’s local tourism industry. Yvette Galbraith, an administrator with the Cooper Landing Chamber of Commerce, said there has been a quite an impact on Cooper Landing because

of the smoke. She said many businesses had cancellations and many patrons tried to reschedule for later dates. No businesses closed down, and everyone stayed open, she noted. “From my understanding unless you had respiratory issues, many were able to still go out and do their activities, just at an adjusted level or time of day,” she said. She said it was tough having the area

be portrayed as constantly smoky. “So when the weather broke or mornings or afternoons were clearer, folks missed out enjoying the Landing,” she said. Galbraith said only heavy windstorms impact trips, but business still operate in rain or smoke. “Skies are clear now, and it is See business, Page A14

Swan Lake Fire growth stalls, little growth expected as control lines are established By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

The Swan Lake Fire experienced another day of minimal growth on Tuesday, and little growth is expected for the next 48 hours along the

Chickaloon, Thurman and Mystery Creek drainages. Personnel from the Eastern Area Type 2 Incident Management Team assumed command and crews continued to work along the fire’s eastern flank, according to the latest

update. Crews are using the natural features and existing trails in the area to establish control lines that will curb eastward spread. The western perimeter of the fire also remains in check due the wetlands and completed control lines in the area. Despite

scattered rain showers over the weekend, extremely dry conditions make mop-up efforts in burned areas a challenge. The latest measurement of the See fire, Page A14

Head of US Forest Service visits Tongass Forest JUNEAU — The head of the U.S. Forest Service visited Alaska’s Tongass National Forest to investigate timber sales and related issues, a report said. U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski hosted Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen during the July 6-7 visit, CoastAlaska reported Monday. Christiansen stopped in Wrangell, Ketchikan and Prince Wales Island as part of a flying visit with Alaska’s senior senator. The meetings were not publicized in advance. Murkowski questioned Christiansen about the service’s Southeast Alaska timber sales during budget hearings in May and the women agreed to tour the area together. Christiansen told Murkowski the issue was a challenge and she was willing to visit Alaska to “roll up our sleeves and really look at this.” The forest service did not receive any bids in a sale of Tongass old growth timber that ended in June. The federal delegation spoke with industry representatives and supporters in Wrangell about a Trump administration effort to craft an exemption from the 2001 Roadless Rule that would allow logging in more undeveloped parts of the Tongass.

‘Always ready, proud to serve’ Nikiski Fire Department celebrates 50 years By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

On Monday night, the community of Nikiski came together at Fire Station #2 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Nikiski Fire Department. Within the first two hours of the event close to a hundred people had stopped by, and visitors were invited to tour the station, play games with fire hoses, view a slideshow of historic photos and hear stories from some of the personnel who have come and gone over the years. For some, it was an opportunity to look back in time and see how the department has grown throughout its history. For the current and former firefighters who attended, it was a family reunion, as former chiefs got to know the newest volunteers and old crew members reminisced over

hotdogs and hamburgers about long nights at the station. Since 1969, Nikiski firefighters have responded to emergencies of all kinds, from cannery fires to searchand-rescue diving operations. With a service area of around 6,000 square miles, the department is responsible for protecting the oil platforms out on the Cook Inlet and the remote communities of Tyonek and Beluga across the water. These days, the department boasts state-of-the-art engines, tankers and ambulances, but it wasn’t always that way. When the department first started, thenmayor George Navarre hired Chester Davis from Anchorage to be the first chief of the North Kenai Fire Service Area. Davis brought Dave Unruh along with him to be his second-incommand, and the two became the first paid firefighters in the area. Unruh, now a retired captain, still

lives in the area and spoke to Senior EMS Captain Harrison Deveer leading up to the 50th anniversary to share his story about the department’s founding. In video testimonials recorded by Deveer for the event, Unruh said that at the time, the station had one truck that could barely make it over 30 miles per hour. Unruh recalled that one of the volunteer firefighters told him that in order to reach 40 or 50 miles per hour, they often had to dump some of the water out of the tanker. Some of the people who had lived in the area were reluctant to have a fire department at all, and called it a waste of money, Unruh said. The budget for the department back then was about $70,000, which included the salaries of Unruh and Davis. At the time, Unruh said he See ready, Page A2

In addition to featuring a slate of melodies, the weekly Levitt AMP Soldotna Music Series offers a number of other entertainment perks. Tonight, the early festivities include an hour of lawn activities featuring Nikiski rock drummer Kyle Baltus, a dance production and a cornhole competition. And that’s just the evening’s warm-up.

The feature musician this week is Boston artist Milo Matthews, with Alaskan band Hot Mess playing the opening act. Soldotna Chamber Executive Director Shanon Davis said Baltus will join Rosemary Pilatti to conduct a “Whack a Bucket” crash course in drumming for younger listeners, and will provide buckets and drumsticks for a workshop beginning at 5 p.m. After a short workshop, Baltus will then pull some of the more advanced drummers out and teach

Alyse Galvin has announced her campaign to unseat incumbent Don Young in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2020. Galvin ran against Young in 2018 but lost in the general election. Following a decision by the state Supreme Court, Galvin, an Independent, was able to challenge Democrats Alyse Galvin in that party’s primary and ultimately ran on the Democratic ticket. Galvin has announced her campaign as an Independent again, but has not said whether she intends to run in the Democratic primary again. “Amid persistent partisan gridlock on the state and federal level, Galvin will also focus her candidacy on better government, demanding that our representatives actually work for the people they serve,” a press release announcing her candidacy on Tuesday said.

Alaska State Arts Council shuts down ANCHORAGE (AP) — The Alaska State Council on the Arts closed its doors Monday, making Alaska the only state without an arts council. About 50 people gathered to mark the passing of the organization, the Anchorage Daily News reported. Gov. Mike Dunleavy, a Republican who took office in December, used a line-item budget veto to eliminate the council’s funding of $2.8 million. Alaska lawmakers fell short last week in attempts to override the vetoes. Sheryl Maree Reily, a member of the council’s visual arts advisory committee, wore a long black dress with a dark lace veil to mourn the loss. “This is going to leave a huge vacuum,” she said. “There is going to be no formal mechanism for connecting information, connecting funding.” Council Chairman Benjamin Brown said the council was in line for $700,000 from the state’s general fund. Dunleavy’s veto also covered $700,000 in federal funds through the National Endowment for the Arts and $1.5 million in private foundation funds that could not be accepted. Reily and others said they wanted to thank outgoing employees who lost their

made about $1,000 a month and took a pay cut from his job in Anchorage in order to come here. “But how often do you get to start a fire department from scratch?” Unruh said. After a few years, Nikiski’s fire department had acquired a couple more vehicles, including an asphalt truck that had been converted into a water tanker and a van that was turned into an ambulance — nicknamed “The Yellowbird.” Under the direction of Davis, the department also acquired a second fire station, which was rented from the North Kenai Community Club and is located right across the street from the new Fire Station #2, which was built in 2010. According to some of the personnel interviewed by the Clarion Monday, including 30-year receptionist Terry Carter, the Nikiski Fire department hit its stride in the early ‘80s after Al Willis became fire chief. Carter and others described Willis as a skilled politician who was able to acquire funds from the state and other agencies for all-new equipment, most of which remained in use until around 2008. Willis was also pivotal in expanding the department’s emergency response capabilities. Under Willis’ leadership, Nikiski Fire trained

jobs. “I came here today to give my support, acknowledge the hard work and the achievements of this organization,” Reily said. Keren Lowell worked as the literary and visual arts coordinator. Over seven years, she had also held finance and administrative jobs. Those were less gratifying jobs than working directly with art, she said, but were probably some of the more valuable services the council provided. “That’s why this agency is so amazing,”

she said. “We had a good handle on how money works and how the arts work in money. We did a good job. I’m proud of what we did.” The public may have perceived that the organization was mainly about funding, Lowell said. The council also supported schools, teachers and rural communities, coordinated with other arts organizations and facilitated professional development for artists. “All of the other arts partners used us as a pass-through or as a center or as a collection point for all of the activities going on,” Lowell said. “We communicated with people, which led to more opportunities and supported the work that they did.” The arts sometimes are perceived as something subsidized with no return, Reily said. “I think it’s a misconception,” she said. “They are an economic driver. They are the underpinnings of the tourism industry, secondary to the landscape. People come here for the culture, and they come here for the arts. It’s the stories that people tell in magazines that bring people here that the writers and poets write, the photographs that the photographers take.”

the first licensed paramedics in the state, a dive team and a high-angle technical rescue team, according to a written history Carter provided to the Clarion. Willis brought on Billy Harris, a retired military firefighter, to help with training the firefighters. Harris said in an interview recorded by Deveer that when he first arrived, the salaried crew was reluctant to learn anything new. The volunteers, on the other hand, were eager to learn from Harris, and under his guidance Harris said they became as skilled as the paid firefighters. With no hydrant system in the area, access to water has always been one of the biggest challenges facing Nikiski firefighters, so Harris and Willis also developed a cutting-edge water delivery system that is still in use today and is featured in multiple firefighting textbooks, according to the history provided by Carter. Harris, who eventually took over as fire chief, said he continued to ensure the training standards for his firefighters were the highest in the state. Engineer Gail White, who’s been at the department 20 years, said that the standard for Nikiski firefighters remains the highest in the state to this day. Because of its large service area, the Nikiski firefighters have to be prepared for anything. Matt Quiner, a 17-year veteran, described one of the first calls he went on when he joined the

department. Quiner and the others responded to a house fire on Wik Road, and while they were putting the fire out the owner of the property arrived and suddenly had a seizure on the scene. The crew quickly put the homeowner into an ambulance and were headed toward Kenai, when the ambulance hit a moose. Luckily, the man was transferred into another ambulance and eventually treated, but Quiner said the experience made quite an impression on him. “I came from Kodiak, which was a pretty quiet place,” Quiner said. “So when all that happened I thought, ‘Oh boy, what did I get myself into?’” Despite having to deal with unconventional situations and emergencies, the personnel of the Nikiski Fire Department consider working there as if they are a part of a close-knit family. “If I’m not here, my wife can call Rhonda or Gail or Ms. Terry or Matt and say ‘Hey I need help’ and they’ll be right there,” Deveer said. “That’s Nikiski Fire and that’s the community of Nikiski.” As the folks of the Nikiski Fire Department celebrated 50 years of protecting the community, the next generation of firefighters and paramedics — including volunteers Vlad Glushkov and Brandon Edwards who joined earlier this year — are being trained to continue that service and live up to the department’s motto: “Always ready, proud to serve.”

His family would like him to be remembered best for his big smile, caring heart and adventurous spirit. He was happiest when he was out riding a motorized vehicle, whether that be a dirt bike, snowmachine or four wheeler. Anything that went fast. Noah was fearless, since his birth, he loved going fast. Often times breaking bones from his antics. He usually was laughing and would proudly display his injuries. His dream was always to be a mechanic and had a talent for it. He also was known for being the helper always ready to give even when he had little. In recent years Noah struggled with medical, mental and substance abuse issues. Noah was diagnosed with crohns disease at the age of 13 and lived in much pain for years and was constantly battling that demon. Noah is survived by his parents, Brooke and John Straume, of Soldotna, Sister Ella Price of Soldotna, Brothers, Karl & Tiffany Straume and family of Soldotna, and Keith & Autumn Straume and Family of Milton, DE.

After retiring from the Military, he worked for the Washington State Patrol for 17 years. In 1953, he married his wife, Jessie. They had many years of adventures. He served in Korea, Guam, Saipan, Greenland, England and Germany. Everyone who knew him knows he never held a fishing pole he didn’t like. He was a fishing fool and will be greatly missed. Besides fishing, Fred also enjoyed reading, especially Zane Grey. He was preceded in death by a daughter, Diane Root.

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens dies at 99 By Mark Sherman and Connie Cass Associated Press

WASHINGTON — John Paul Stevens, the bow-tied, independent-thinking, Republican-nominated justice who unexpectedly emerged as the Supreme Court’s leading liberal, died Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after suffering a stroke Monday. He was 99. During nearly 35 years on the court, Stevens stood for the freedom and dignity of individuals, be they students or immigrants or prisoners. He acted to limit the death penalty, squelch official prayer in schools, establish gay rights, promote racial equality and preserve legal abortion. He protected the rights of crime suspects and illegal immigrants facing Michael Dwyer / Associated Press file deportation. Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John He influenced Paul Stevens talks about his views and fellow justices to career during a forum May 20, 21013, at give foreign terrorthe John F. Kennedy Library in Boston. ism suspects held for years at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, naval base the right to plead for their release in U.S. courts. Stevens served more than twice the average tenure for a justice, and was only the second to mark his 90th birthday on the high court. From his appointment by President Gerald Ford in 1975 through his retirement in June 2010, he shaped decisions that touched countless aspects of American life. He remained an active writer and speaker into his late 90s, surprising some when he came out against Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation following Kavanaugh’s angry denial of sexual assault allegations. Stevens wrote an autobiography, “The Making of a Justice: My First 94 Years,” that was released just after his 99th birthday in April 2019. At first considered a centrist, Stevens came to be seen as a lion of liberalism. But he rejected that characterization. “I don’t think of myself as a liberal at all,” Stevens told The New York Times in 2007. “I think as part of my general politics, I’m pretty darn conservative.” The way Stevens saw it, he held to the same ground, but the court had shifted steadily to the right over the decades, creating the illusion that he was moving leftward. He did change his views on some issues, however. He morphed from a critic of affirmative action to a supporter, and came to believe the death penalty was wrong. His legal reasoning was often described as unpredictable or idiosyncratic, especially in his early years on the court. He was a prolific writer of separate opinions laying out his own thinking, whether he agreed or disagreed with the majority’s ruling. Yet Stevens didn’t consider his methods novel. He tended toward a case-by-case approach, avoided sweeping judicial philosophies, and stayed mindful of precedent. The white-haired Stevens, eyes often twinkling behind owlish glasses, was the picture of old-fashioned geniality on the court and off. He took an unusually courteous tone with lawyers arguing their cases, but he was no pushover. After his fellow justices fired off questions, Stevens would politely weigh in. “May I ask a question?” he’d ask gently, then quickly slice to the weakest point of a lawyer’s argument. Stevens was especially concerned with the plight of ordinary citizens up against the government or other powerful interests — a type of struggle he witnessed as a boy. He voiced only one regret about his Supreme Court career: that he had supported reinstating the death penalty in 1976. More than three decades later, Stevens publicly declared his opposition to capital punishment, saying that years of bad court decisions had overlooked racial bias, favored prosecutors and otherwise undermined his expectation that death sentences could be handed down fairly. One of his harshest dissents came when the court lifted restrictions on spending by corporations and unions to sway elections. He called the 2010 ruling “a rejection of the common sense of the American people” and a threat to democracy. As he read parts of that opinion aloud, Stevens’ voice wavered uncharacteristically and he repeatedly stumbled over words. For the 90-year-old who’d worried he wouldn’t know when to bow out, it was a signal. “That was the day I decided to resign,” Stevens said later. He also disclosed in his autobiography that he had suffered a mini-stroke. The retirement of Stevens, known as a defender of strict separation of church and state, notably left the high court without a single Protestant member for the first time. “I guess I’m the last WASP,” he joked, saying the issue was irrelevant to the justices’ work. Justice Neil Gorsuch, who joined the court in 2017, was raised Catholic, but attends a Protestant church. A great-grandfather, Stevens eased into an active retirement of writing and speaking, still fit for swimming and tennis in Fort Lauderdale, where he and his second wife, Maryan, kept a home away from Washington. He is survived by two daughters, Elizabeth and Susan, nine grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Stevens’ first wife, Elizabeth, second wife, Maryan, and two children died before him.

I

am very shocked and disappointed at the callous manner in which the Gov. Mike Dunleavy administration and Legislature have let down Alaska’s brightest and most promising students. The administration’s $135 million cuts affected the students’ scholarships and academic programs and the Legislature’s failure to re-appropriate funds swept into the Constitutional Budget Reserve (CBR) on June 30 may have drained Alaska’s Higher Education Investment Fund of nearly $350 million. The administration has failed to explain its reasons for the cuts or its vision for the role of the University in Alaska after the cuts. The legislators who failed to vote for the so-called “reverse sweep” have failed to justify the impact of their vote on Alaska’s Higher Education Investment Fund or the impact of their vote on the students who have lost their scholarships or academic degree programs. Performance scholarships were granted to 3,270 merit-based Alaskan youth at a cost of $10.8 million annually. Nearly 1 in 5 students seeking degrees had qualified for a scholarship. The other program, needs based education grants, or financial aid, were granted to 2,030 degree seeking students. More than 1 in 10 received financial aid which cost $4

When I was governor, we supported a program offering financial aid and or scholarships to the top 10% of the graduates from every high school in the state. Our objective was not only to keep our students in Alaska, but to cause students from one part of Alaska to meet and appreciate students from other parts of the state. million annually. Altogether, the two programs support more than 5,000 students annually with financial aid of approximately $15.2 million, or about 30% of the university degree seekers. Precipitously cutting these scholarships is a significant violation of trust. These students were awarded their scholarships on which they charted their educational plans in good faith, only to have the state government snatch them away. Similar consideration must be given to the impacts of the Legislature’s and administration’s cuts on non-scholarship University of Alaska students. In many cases the academic degree programs they have been pursuing will be discontinued and they will be forced to go to school out of state and at higher cost.

When I was governor, we supported a program offering financial aid and or scholarships to the top 10% of the graduates from every high school in the state. Our objective was not only to keep our students in Alaska, but to cause students from one part of Alaska to meet and appreciate students from other parts of the state. For these reasons we gave the scholarship program a much higher priority than the dividend. One can only speculate on the impact the administration’s and Legislature’s actions may have on the university’s students’ future educational dreams, and most disturbing, their faith in state government. I strongly urge the governor and the Legislature to quickly restore these funds for the future leadership of Alaska.

letters to the editor

Cycle of destruction The ADF&G may logically understand that Alaska is not required to provide the entire planet fish and that weak fisheries resources cannot tolerant indiscriminate commercial gill netting, but logic is not the primary force that controls their decisions these days. When an ADF&G fisheries manager makes a logical decision today that decision is then pounded by politics, politicians, environmentalist, user groups, lobbyists, and big money special interest groups who basically don’t care about fisheries logic. Today an ADF&G area fisheries biologist who may open or close a fishery in Cook Inlet depends on the approval of the ADF&G regional coordinator, who depends on the approval of the ADF&G deputy director, who depends on the approval of the ADF&G director, who depends on the approval of the ADF&G commissioner, who depends on the approval of the Alaska governor. The governor depends on communicating popular politics to voters to get elected. Communicating politics depends on campaign financing. Campaign financing depends on special interests financing. Special interest financing depends on the governor’s political ability to promote the special interest. This all means that an ADF&G fisheries manager’s job is directly connected to the political and financial promotion of special interest groups. Alaska attempts to deny that it promotes special interest groups but guess what group regularly tries to take advantage of this ADF&G political and financial connection? Alaska’s governor’s office regularly compels its ADF&G to increase commercial fisheries access so commercial fisheries

can increase financial support to the governor’s office. The governor’s office then increases commercial fisheries access to increase financial support to the governor’s office. Basically increased commercial fisheries access is being traded to elect governors. This destructive cycle continues electing governors and increasing commercial fisheries access until overharvest results in fisheries collapse. That collapse then destroys the political power attached, with the politicians and commercial fishermen vanishing only to reappear somewhere else where they can anonymously begin the cycle again. This cycle of fisheries destruction has played out many times within the last couple hundred years in the Lower 48 states. It happened within the U.S. East Coast commercial black cod fisheries between 1910-1980. The same resulted within the West Coast commercial salmon fisheries between 1950-1990. In each case government fisheries managers claimed they were regulating sustainable commercial fisheries until they over-harvested and collapsed the resources. Each of these fisheries allowed politics and fisheries management to mix until they destroyed each other. Alaska is currently allowing this same type of destructive fisheries management. The question is, do you care about Alaska’s fisheries resources? Alaska needs to disconnect fisheries management from politics and that means removing government from fisheries management. This could be accomplished by hiring a private company to manage Alaska’s fisheries that can be fired when our fisheries vanish. Why do nothing and allow Alaska’s fisheries to vanish, because that’s what is happening right now. — Donald Johnson Soldotna

A bad deal for Alaska I’ve been joking with my friends that I am going to run for governor on the promise of a $10,000 PFD. I don’t mean it to be funny though. I want people to process the irresponsibility of that idea. And while they’re at it, think about the cynicism of someone who would appeal to that sort of irresponsibility. In the last few years I’ve learned some new words, including “obsequious” and “sycophant.” (Go ahead and Google them if you’re not sure what they mean, I’ll wait). I would say a legislator that goes along with a very cynical and irresponsible idea for fear of being primaried or turned out in a general election is not much of a leader, but rather an “obsequious sycophant.” See, I can use them in a sentence! I’m not sure who is to blame for the dire straits we are in here with our current budget disaster that is nearly 40 years in the making. Is it the cynical governor who ran on big dividends and easy answers to very hard problems? Is it the cheering section of a legislative branch that refuses to assert its power and lead? Is it the entitled and distracted voters that sent all of these “leaders” into office without really considering how big dividends and budget cuts would affect the state? Allow me to blaspheme here and suggest it’s the very PFD itself and an entitled selfishness that has infected far too many Alaskans. (Don’t worry, I’m not really running for office so I can indulge in such honesty!) This governor and his sycophants in the Legislature aim to spend our wealth for their own political gain. A $3,000 dividend paid for by a half billion in cuts is a bad deal, Alaska. — Henry Webb Juneau

Police officer in ‘I can’t breathe’ death won’t be charged By MICHAEL BALSAMO, MICHAEL R. SISAK, COLLEEN LONG and TOM HAYS Associated Press

NEW YORK — After years of silence, federal prosecutors said Tuesday that they won’t bring criminal charges against a white New York City police officer in the 2014 chokehold death of Eric Garner, a black man whose dying words — “I can’t breathe” — became a national rallying cry against police brutality. The decision to end a yearslong civil rights investigation without charges was made by Attorney General William Barr and was announced the day before the five-year anniversary of the deadly Staten Island encounter, just as the statute of limitations was set to expire. Civil rights prosecutors in Washington had favored filing criminal charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo, but ultimately Barr sided with other federal prosecutors based in Brooklyn who said evidence, including a bystander’s widely viewed cellphone video, wasn’t

sufficient to make a case, a Justice Department official told The Associated Press. Richard Donoghue, the U.S. Attorney in Brooklyn, said at a news conference that while Garner’s death was tragic, there was insufficient evidence to prove that Pantaleo or any other officers involved in the confrontation on a Staten Island sidewalk had willfully violated his civil rights. “Even if we could prove that Officer Pantaleo’s hold of Mr. Garner constituted unreasonable force, we would still have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Officer Pantaleo acted willfully in violation of the law,” Donoghue said. Garner’s family was incensed by the decision, the latest from a Justice Department under President Donald Trump that has scaled-back use of consent decrees aimed at improving local police departments found to have violated civil rights. “This should have been taken care of years ago,” said Garner’s mother,

Trump’s new asylum rules go into effect, and opponents sue By ELLIOT SPAGAT and CEDAR ATTANASIO Associated Press

TIJUANA, Mexico — Hundreds of immigrants showed up at border crossings Tuesday in hopes of getting into the U.S. but faced the likelihood of being turned away under a new Trump administration asylum rule that upends long-standing protections for people fleeing violence and oppression in their homelands. The policy went into effect Tuesday but drew a swift lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union. “This is the Trump administration’s most extreme run at an asylum ban yet,” said American Civil Liberties Union attorney Lee Gelernt. “It clearly violates domestic and international law and cannot stand.” The policy represents the most forceful attempt to date by President Donald Trump to slash the number of people seeking asylum in America. It comes at a time when Trump’s recent tweets telling four members of Congress to “go

back” to other countries have set off an uproar. Trump did not mention the new practices rules Tuesday during a White House meeting. Under the rules, migrants who pass through another country on their way to the U.S. will be ineligible for asylum. Most of the immigrants arriving at the border this year pass through Mexico — including Central Americans, Africans, Cubans and Haitians. That makes it all but impossible for them to get asylum.

AROUND THE NATION

The rule also applies to children who have crossed the border alone. At the crossing in Tijuana, 12 people whose numbers were first on a waiting list to enter through a San Diego border crossing were escorted behind a metal gate to a white van that left minutes later to turn them over to U.S. authorities. Ndifor Gedeon, 27, arrived in Tijuana nearly three months ago with the hope of seeking asylum in the U.S. after being jailed in Cameroon by a government that has been going after the African nation’s English-speaking minority. He was rethinking those plans after hearing that he may not have a chance at getting asylum because of the new policy and if his case is denied he will be deported straight back to Cameroon. “I feel sick,” he said of the anxiety consuming him. “If I am sent back to Cameroon, I’d lose my life. The situation is very horrible.” He speaks no Spanish and does not feel safe in Tijuana, which has one of the highest homicide rates in Mexico. Even so, he prefers Tijuana to returning to Cameroon.

WASHINGTON — Army Secretary Mark Esper, President Donald Trump’s nominee to become secretary of defense, told his Senate confirmation hearing Tuesday he is troubled by Turkey’s decision to defy the United States by acquiring Russian-made air defenses. “It is very disheartening to see how they have drifted over the past several years,” Esper said, citing the Turkish government’s purchase of the S-400 air defense system that the Trump administration has said is likely to trigger U.S. economic sanctions and jeopardize Turkey’s role in the NATO alliance, whose primary adversary is Russia. Turkey began taking delivery of S-400 components in recent days, but the Trump administration has yet to fully explain its intended retaliation. Trump told reporters Tuesday that the U.S. would not sell the F-35 to Turkey, but he did not address other aspects of the issue, such as the expected removal of Turkey as a supplier of F-35 components. “We are now telling Turkey that because you have been forced to buy another missile system we’re not going to sell you the F35,” Trump said. It was not immediately clear what he meant by saying Turkey was forced to buy the Russian system. Pentagon officials have said Turkey was offered favorable terms to buy a U.S.-made air defense system, the Patriot, but turned it down in favor of the Russian system. The Pentagon has repeatedly said the S-400 purchase would mean Turkey’s indefinite suspension, and potentially its permanent removal, from the U.S. F-35 stealth fighter program as a supplier of numerous components. It also has suspended a program of F-35 flight training for Turkish student pilots and instructor pilots at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona and given those personnel a July 31 deadline to leave the United States.

Trump administration blasts WTO ruling on China WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration blasted a World Trade Organization decision Tuesday that could let China levy sanctions on the United States. The 2-1 decision by the WTO’s appellate body was actually a mixed verdict in a case that dates back to 2007 and is unrelated to the tariffs the administration has slapped on $250 billion in Chinese goods. In its final decision, the WTO agreed with the U.S. that China lets state-owned enterprises (SOEs) subsidize Chinese firms by providing components at unfairly low costs. But it said the U.S. wrongly calculated the tariffs imposed to punish China for the subsidies. If the U.S. doesn’t recalculate them, China can retaliate with its own sanctions. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative said the ruling “undermines WTO rules, making them less effective to counteract Chinese SOE subsidies that are harming U.S. workers and businesses and distorting markets worldwide.” — Associated Press

Turn chickpea fritters into a delicious burger By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Falafel are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, packed with seasoning, and utterly irresistible. Here we essentially supersize these chickpea fritters to make a uniquely delicious burger. We started by soaking dried chickpeas overnight to soften before grinding them into coarse bits along with onion, herbs, garlic, and spices. Traditional falafel recipes use flour and chickpeas for a dough-like texture, but uncooked flour yielded patties that were dry and bready instead, we used a microwaved flour paste to add moisture and create a soft interior. To ensure burger-size falafel, we used a dry measuring cup and dropped scoops of the falafel mixture into a heated skillet and then used the back of a spoon to press each portion into a 3/4-inchthick patty. To top off our burgers, we created a sauce -featuring tahini, Greek yogurt, and lemon juice and also added sliced cucumber and quick pickled red onions for a burger so flavourful we may never go back to falafel wrapped in pita bread.

Season with salt and extra lemon juice to taste set aside. (Sauce can be refrigerated for up to 4 days let come to room temperature and stir to recombine before serving.) Process cilantro, parsley, onion, garlic, coriander, cumin, salt, and cayenne in food processor until mixture is finely ground, about 30 seconds, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add chickpeas and pulse 6 times. Continue topulse until chickpeas are coarsely chopped and resemble sesame seeds, about 6 more pulses. Transfer mixture to large bowl and set aside. Whisk flour and 1/3 cup water in bowl until no lumps remain. Microwave, whisking every 10 seconds, until mixture thickens to stiff, smooth, pudding-like consistency that forms mound when dropped from end of whisk into bowl, 40 to 80 seconds. Stir baking powder into flour paste. Add flour paste to

chickpea mixture and, using rubber spatula, mix until fully incorporated. (Falafel mixture can be refrigerated for up to 2 hours.) Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Using 1 cup measure, drop 4 even portions (about 3/4 cup each) into skillet, then press each portion into 3/4-inch-thick patty with back of spoon. Cook until golden brown and crisp on first side, 4 to 6 minutes. Using 2 spatulas, gently flip patties and cook until well browned and crisp on second side, 4 to 6 minutes, adding extra oil as needed if skillet looks dry. Serve burgers on buns, topped with cucumber, pickled onions, and tahini-yogurt sauce. Quick Pickled Red Onion Makes about 1 cup Pickled onions are an absolute breeze to make—just a few minutes of hands-on preparation plus a 30-minute brine bath transform

BREAKFAST PIZZA Make an ideal dish for a brunch crowd

By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Although it sounds like a bad Saturday morning commercial (Pizza?! For breakfast?!!), it turns out breakfast pizza is just a creative version of the classic bread-eggscheese-meat combo. It makes an ideal dish for a brunch crowd and isn’t difficult if you start with store-bought pizza dough. Our challenge was getting a crisp crust without overcooking the eggs. To get there, we pressed room-temperature dough into a lightly oiled baking sheet and parbaked it for 5 minutes to give the crust a head start before we added the toppings. The remaining minutes in the oven cooked the eggs just right. The surprising addition of cottage cheese tethered all the ingredients together with a silky creaminess. Room-temperature dough is much easier to shape than cold, so pull the dough from the fridge about 1 hour before you start cooking.

BREAKFAST PIZZA Servings: 6 Start to finish: 1 hour 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling 6 slices bacon 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (2 cups) 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated (1/2 cup) 4 ounces (1/2 cup) small-curd cottage cheese 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano Salt and pepper Pinch cayenne pepper 1 pound store-bought pizza dough, room temperature 6 large eggs 2 scallions, sliced thin

2 tablespoons minced fresh chives Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 500 F. Grease rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon oil. Cook bacon in 12-inch skillet over medium heat until crisp, 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer to paper towellined plate when cool enough to handle, crumble bacon. Combine mozzarella and Parmesan in bowl set aside. Combine cottage cheese, oregano, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, cayenne, and 1 tablespoon oil in separate bowl set aside. Sprinkle counter lightly with flour. Roll dough into 15-by-11-inch rectangle with rolling pin, pulling on corners to help make distinct rectangle. Transfer dough to prepared sheet and press to edges of sheet. Brush edges of dough with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Bake dough until top appears dry and bottom is just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove crust from oven and, using spatula, press down on any air bubbles. Spread cottage cheese mixture evenly over top, leaving 1-inch border around edges. Sprinkle bacon evenly over cottage cheese mixture. Sprinkle mozzarella mixture evenly over pizza, leaving 1/2-inch border. Create 2 rows of 3 evenly spaced small wells in cheese, each about 3 inches in diameter (6 wells total). Crack 1 egg into each well, then season each egg with salt and pepper. Return pizza to oven and bake until crust is light golden around edges and eggs are just set, 9 to 10 minutes for slightly runny yolks or 11 to 12 minutes for soft-cooked yolks, rotating sheet halfway through baking. Transfer pan to wire rack and

let pizza cool for 5 minutes. Transfer pizza to cutting board. Sprinkle with scallions and chives and drizzle with extra oil. Slice and serve. Variation: — Chorizo and Manchego Breakfast Pizza: Substitute 6 ounces chorizo sausage, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices, for bacon and 1 cup shredded Manchego cheese for Parmesan.

Cook chorizo in 12-inch skillet over medium heat until lightly browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Let cool completely before proceeding. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 492 calories 250 calories from fat 28 g fat (10 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 248 mg cholesterol 1190 mg sodium 36 g carbohydrate 2 g fiber 1 g sugar 26 g protein.

Swanson River Fire 1969, Funny River Fire 2014 and now the Swan Lake Fire of 2019 I have written about this before but now I have many more new followers of my articles and I HAVE HAD SEVERAL PEOPLE ask me what happened when you got to the beach during the 1969 Swanson River Fire. My six kids and I were back on Betty and Gene Coulter’s homestead painting an old wooden door, getting ready to fish from the beach at Arness dock. Here is the rest of the story and thanks for asking. After loading the car with toilet paper, silverware and guns and our coats, I jumped in the Jeep parked in front of my car, with my buddy Paul. Betty jumped in my big old Plymouth station wagon with seven kids and the valuables — no seat belts in those days. She roared into gear and almost hit me before I could get the Jeep started and out of her way. The way out of the fire was to head to the beach. The trail out of the homestead to the beach was deep and narrow with ruts. I could see in the rearview mirror Betty trying to keep up with me, fishtailing and bouncing from side to side down the long narrow trail in my BIG-LONG blue and black fourdoor Plymouth station wagon. It was not easy to keep it on the road, let alone on a narrow trail loaded with household goodies and seven kids. I was so excited myself that when I saw lots of rabbits, spruce hens, foxes and coyotes running down the same trail in front of me, I started to scream “run bunnies run” over and over again. I opened up the canvas door of the Jeep at one time, while still in motion, to see if I was going to run over a bunny in the trail. I scared Paul so badly, he thought I was jumping out of the Jeep! He started crying, clapping his hands and saying and “run bunnies run” over and over. I was busy keeping the Jeep on the trail and looking in the mirror to see if Betty was in the right tracks and not hung up in some treetop and trying to calm poor Paul. We made it to the edge of the beach, bounced off the shelf that the tide had made and onto the sand — turning, churning and spinning, throwing rocks and sand everywhere. We finally got to this small fishing cabin that had been on the beach for years. We herded the kids out of the car into the cabin with Betty jabbering at whoever “we gotta feed the kids, we gotta feed the kids.” She kept repeating it over and over! “No we don’t!” I finally shouted back. “It’s not supper time yet!” Just then a big thick cloud of smoke rolled over the top of the bluff and onto the beach, choking us. Betty and I unwrapped the towels that were holding the guns in place in the car. (Every gun was loaded just as I suspected!) We led the kids to the edge of the water of Cook Inlet, soaked the towels in water, placed them over the heads of our kids and over our heads. We sat by the water’s edge with several moose, bears, coyotes and a couple of wolves — who hung back watching us with their beady, bright eyes — rabbits, and yes small bunnies, a lone fox, a bunch of spruce hens and various birds. We sat at the water’s edge for a long time before the smoke cleared. The water had a calming effect, but we were still very worried about our husbands. We ate later but I don’t remember much about that, my stomach was tied in knots. Then we heard a pickup coming down the beach. It was my husband, Richard and Gene looking for us to see if we were all safe. They had been caught in the middle of the fire and had to push burning trees and brush out of the way to get to the homestead just in time to be bombed by the pink fire retardant that had been released from the airplanes above.

Get that sticky rice crispy chew that kids and adults love By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

While almost everyone is familiar with the classic recipe for Rice Krispies Treats, slight variations on the original abound. We think our recipe gets them just right, with the perfect ratio of marshmallow and butter to cereal for a bar with the sticky chew that kids love and that adults remember fondly. The basic procedure is the same as the back-of-the box recipe: Melt butter and marshmallows, mix in cereal, and press into a pan—it couldn’t be simpler. But we like a generous portion of these cereal treats for thick, substantial squares, we pat the mixture into an 8-inch square pan instead of the usual 13-by-9 inch pan. Adding a little salt to the mix kept sweetness in check. Greasing the knife we used to slice the bars ensured that we were able to produce neat, easy-to-cut squares. These rice crispy treats are delicious as is, but their simplicity also makes them an ideal backdrop for a whole host of flavourings and mix-ins, so we developed several variations sure to please any crowd. Any brand of toasted rice cereal will work in this recipe.

For a creative chicken salad, get inspiration from Morocco THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

For a creative chicken salad, we were inspired by the flavours of Morocco: apricots, lemon and warm spices. To give our dressing complex flavour, we reached for garam masala, a traditional spice blend of coriander, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper. We also added a little more coriander, honey, and smoked paprika for depth. Blooming the spices in the microwave deepened their flavours for an even bolder dressing. Chickpeas further echoed the Moroccan theme and lent heartiness, and crisp romaine combined with slightly bitter watercress made the perfect bed of greens for our toppings.

We had wonderful neighbors, Claude Gabbett and Danny Johnson, who had big D8 Cats that worked wonders and kept everyone’s home from burning by pushing away trees from the houses and making firebreaks. If it had not been for them and the CB there would have been a lot of personal loss. Our six kids and Betty’s daughter, through the years, told us that they did not know there was a fire until Betty and I started running in and out of the house, shouting at each other. They thought we had lost our mind or that we were mad at each other. I still see all the kids watching from behind trees wondering what those crazy ladies were doing running back and forth from the house with streaming toilet paper, clanking silverware and then coming back out with guns! It’s a very funny picture now and one that we still talk about.

THIS story was suggested by Susan Jordan — one of my daughters who witnessed the fire and the deeds of “two crazy ladies.” The recent Swan Lake Fire reminds me to never ever be to complacent about burning trash unless you have it in a container and a water hose near by. Clear dead brush and trees and be aware all the time that not only would you loose everything but you put your family, friends and neighbors in jeopardy also!! This year’s Swanson Lake Fire was caused by lightning, but still be aware of your surroundings. Have a great week and God Bless America!

Our nice new blue Ford pickup was bright pink. The guys were black with soot.

Get that sticky rice crispy chew that kids and adults love By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

While almost everyone is familiar with the classic recipe for Rice Krispies Treats, slight variations on the original abound. We think our recipe gets them just right, with the perfect ratio of marshmallow and butter to cereal for a bar with the sticky chew that kids love and that adults remember fondly. The basic procedure is the same as the back-of-the box recipe: Melt butter and marshmallows, mix in cereal, and press into a pan—it couldn’t be simpler. But we like a generous portion of these cereal treats for thick, substantial squares, we pat the mixture into an 8-inch square pan instead of the usual 13-by-9 inch pan. Adding a little salt to the mix kept sweetness in check. Greasing the knife we used to slice the bars ensured that we were able to produce neat, easy-to-cut squares. These rice crispy treats are delicious as is, but their simplicity also makes them an ideal backdrop for a whole host of flavourings and mix-ins, so we developed several variations sure to please any crowd. Any brand of toasted rice cereal will work in this recipe.

For a creative chicken salad, get inspiration from Morocco THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

For a creative chicken salad, we were inspired by the flavours of Morocco: apricots, lemon and warm spices. To give our dressing complex flavour, we reached for garam masala, a traditional spice blend of coriander, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper. We also added a little more coriander, honey, and smoked paprika for depth. Blooming the spices in the microwave deepened their flavours for an even bolder dressing. Chickpeas further echoed the Moroccan theme and lent heartiness, and crisp romaine combined with slightly bitter watercress made the perfect bed of greens for our toppings. Reserving a bit of the dressing

We had wonderful neighbors, Claude Gabbett and Danny Johnson, who had big D8 Cats that worked wonders and kept everyone’s home from burning by pushing away trees from the houses and making firebreaks. If it had not been for them and the CB there would have been a lot of personal loss. Our six kids and Betty’s daughter, through the years, told us that they did not know there was a fire until Betty and I started running in and out of the house, shouting at each other. They thought we had lost our mind or that we were mad at each other. I still see all the kids watching from behind trees wondering what those crazy ladies were doing running back and forth from the house with streaming toilet paper, clanking silverware and then coming back out with guns! It’s a very funny picture now and one that we still talk about.

THIS story was suggested by Susan Jordan — one of my daughters who witnessed the fire and the deeds of “two crazy ladies.” The recent Swan Lake Fire reminds me to never ever be to complacent about burning trash unless you have it in a container and a water hose near by. Clear dead brush and trees and be aware all the time that not only would you loose everything but you put your family, friends and neighbors in jeopardy also!! This year’s Swanson Lake Fire was caused by lightning, but still be aware of your surroundings. Have a great week and God Bless America!

Oilers offense goes quiet against ABL-leading Bucs Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The Peninsula Oilers lost their fourth straight Tuesday night at Mulcahy Stadium with a 3-1 loss to the Anchorage Bucs in Alaska Baseball League action. The Oilers (12-23) dropped 13 games behind the league-leading

Bucs (24-9) with the loss, and just a half-game ahead of the Chugiak/ Eagle River Chinooks (10-22) for the fourth and final ABL playoff spot. The Oilers have nine games left on their 2019 schedule, the last five coming at home. Tuesday, the Bucs outhit the Oilers 10-6, led by Chad Castillo’s 3-for-4 day. Castillo knocked in the first run

of the game with an RBI single in the first inning. Calvin Farris led the Oilers by hitting 2 for 3 with a walk. Eric Reardon gave up three runs in seven strong innings for the Oilers, striking out six while scattering nine hits and two walks. Giancarlo Servin worked a scoreless inning of relief for Peninsula, giving up one hit and

whiffing two. The Oilers had to work against Anchorage starter Michael Frias, who lasted six innings on the mound, giving up just the one run on five hits and three walks, with four strikeouts. Following Castillo’s run-scoring knock in the first inning, the Oilers eventually answered in the top of the fourth with a leadoff double by

Connor McCord. A single by Farris put runners on the corners, and Bohall brought McCord home on a single to right field to knot it up at 1 apiece. However, the Bucs took the lead back at 2-1 with a sac fly by Blake Paugh in the bottom of the fifth, then tacked on an insurance run in the seventh on an Oilers error.

Hayes dodges rain, runs to send Twins to sweep Homer pitcher deals, Twins clinch state bid By Joey Klecka Peninsula Clarion

Barely eight minutes after first pitch, the Legion Twins and Palmer Moose were running for cover from a passing shower that soaked Coral Seymour Memorial Park. The rain left about as quickly as it had arrived. The only thing quicker? Mose Hayes on the mound. Hayes tossed a complete game for the Twins, giving up a single run over seven innings to help Post 20 defeat Palmer 4-1. The Twins capped the day with a 6-5 walkoff victory in the non league game, thanks to a pinch-hit, game-winning single by David Michael. The doubleheader sweep helped the Twins to their sixth win in eight games and an 11-3 league record, 18-9-1 overall. More importantly, the team clinched a spot at the state tournament, although their seeding is still to be decided. The Twins currently sit second in the American Division standings, only behind South Post 4 (12-4 league), with a Friday game against Service, two Saturday games against Ketchikan and a Sunday game against South still to be played. The good times have left the team laserfocused for the next five days, according to Twins head coach Robb Quelland. “It’s the old cliche. We’re looking at Service now,” he said. “We’ll let the standings go, we’ve got some big games coming up this week.” Not to be outdone, Hayes was matched by a complete game performance by Palmer starter Ben Alley, as the two staged a rare duel to keep the bullpens out of the game. Alley gave up four runs on five hits and six walks, whiffing three over six innings. Quelland said the Twins took a cautious approach in using Hayes in the first month of the Legion season, resting him to preserve his arm for a stretch run into the state tournament, which will be played July 26 through 30 in Anchorage. “We just paced him, and I believe our plan worked well, with how strong he is now,” Quelland said. “It’s paying dividends towards the end of the season by not running him so many innings early.” Hayes got through the entire game in an efficient 85 pitches, using a combo of his fastball and curve to finish the game in

under two hours of playing time. “It’s just not having to worry about getting a lot of strikeouts,” Hayes said. “Letting the defense do the work.” Hayes said he struggled with his changeup early on, but after giving up a run in the third inning, a slew of groundouts and fly balls helped him cruise through the last four frames. Hayes said working with catcher Seth Adkins, a Homer High School teammate of his, also helps to give him a comfortable feeling on the mound. “We have a good dynamic,” Hayes said. “He steals me a lot of strikes, for sure.” Ominous clouds approached the park as game time approached at 1 p.m., and with just two outs in the bottom of the first, the rain strengthened and the officials stopped the game. It was more than 20 minutes before the teams took the field again and proceeded to dry up the infield. The two pitchers

appeared hardly fazed. “Everyone was still fresh,” Quelland said. “(Hayes) got a light bullpen session to go back out, and (Palmer) were ready too.” The Twins got an early boost on offense, scoring all four runs in the first inning. With raindrops beginning to fall, the Twins loaded the bases with one out and Harrison Metz answered the bell with a two-run single to stake out a lead. Tanner Ussing followed next with a tworun single of his own, and it was immediately after that that the game was delayed. The Twins loaded the bases in the bottom of the second as well, but couldn’t come through as Adkins popped up in foul territory and Metz grounded out. Luke Guggenmos provided Palmer its lone run of the day by grounding out in a bases-loaded situation with one out. Hayes limited the damaged by inducing a fly out to Zach Satterly to end the frame.

Woods trying to get up to speed for British Open By Doug Ferguson AP Golf Writer

PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland (AP) — Tiger Woods was on the practice range when the gates at the British Open opened Tuesday, and before long he was on the tee and ready to go. He just didn’t go for very long. Woods played a full round at Royal Portrush when he arrived Sunday morning, and then again on

Monday. For his third day of getting to know a links course that hasn’t hosted the British Open in 68 years, Woods made it down No. 1 and then skipped over to the 13th and played the homestretch. It would be simple to assume it was fatigue. After all, Woods hasn’t competed since June 16 at the U.S. Open, and he has only 10 rounds under his belt since his victory in the Masters for his 15th career major. In this case, no one wants to

overdo it at a major, so this was nothing out of the ordinary. Then again, very little is ordinary with golf’s biggest star these days. When asked if there was anything physically bothering him outside the norm, Woods smiled and said, “Anything outside the norm.” The laughter made it hard to hear him say, “No.” His chances at the British Open are nearly as mysterious as Royal Portrush.

Even at age 43, with four knee surgeries and, more recently, more back surgeries behind him, he showed how capable he was against a young generation of talent by winning at Augusta National with smart, strategic golf to overcome a two-shot deficit and win a fifth green jacket. It’s everything since then that speaks to his outlook on golf. He took a month off to recover emotionally and physically from his taxing win at the Masters, only to

miss the cut at the PGA Championship. He played the Memorial and then the U.S. Open, and then he was off to Thailand for a family holiday before returning home to Florida. At this rate, he’ll play no more than 14 times in the PGA Tour season, though he still has a few events overseas at the end of the year. This is the new norm. Woods played plenty last year trying to get back inside the top 50 in the world — he now is up to No. See OPEN, Page A9

Harper belts walk-off hit to send Phillies over Dodgers PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bryce Harper hit a two-run double off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen with one out in the bottom of the ninth after pinch-hitter Matt Beaty hit a three-run homer off Philadelphia closer Hector Neris in the top half, rallying the Phillies to a 9-8 win over Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Pinch-hitter Andrew Knapp hit a double with one out in the bottom of the ninth and Cesar Hernandez singled. Scott Kingery followed with a bloop single to center that scored Knapp to get the Phillies within a run. Harper then ripped a ball to the gap that bounced off A.J. Pollock’s glove and went to the wall. Cody Bellinger hit his major

league-leading 34th homer and Max Muncy, A.J. Pollock and Joc Pederson also went deep for the Dodgers. Harper hit a three-run homer and drove in five RBIs, Brad Miller and Kingery also connected for the Phillies. Ranger Suarez (1-0) got two outs for the win. Jansen (3-3) has four blown saves in 24 tries.

YANKEES 8, RAYS 3 NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning, Didi Gregorius followed with a grand slam as New York beat Tampa Bay after another surly clash between CC Sabathia and the Rays.

Judge smashed a 3-2 pitch from left-hander Colin Poche (2-3) into the right-center field seats to make it 4-3. It was Judge’s 10th homer. Gregorius took a curtain call after hitting a long grand slam. Edwin Encarnación hit his 28th homer, DJ LeMahieu also went deep, and New York stretched its AL East lead over Tampa Bay to six games. Yandy Díaz hit a solo homer and an RBI double, and Austin Meadows hit his 14th homer for Tampa Bay. Benches cleared during the sixth inning amid a shouting match between Sabathia and hitter Avisaíl García. After Sabathia struck out García looking to strand two runners, the 38-year-old barked and

pointed at García. Sabathia was restrained by Gregorius and never got close to García while both benches and bullpens emptied. No punches were thrown. David Hale (3-0) pitched two scoreless innings for New York.

BLUE JAYS 10, RED SOX 4 BOSTON (AP) — Teoscar Hernández hit a three-run homer off new Boston starter Andrew Cashner, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. had three hits to lead Toronto. Gurriel had a single, double and triple, and Justin Smoak also homered for Toronto, which lost three of its previous

four games. Cashner (9-4) was acquired from the Orioles on Saturday. He failed to get an out in the sixth, allowing six runs — five earned — on eight hits and two walks, striking out two. He also gave up two homers, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch on a third strike. Xander Bogaerts had a single, double and home run, and Mookie Betts also had three hits for Boston, which fell 10 games behind the firstplace New York Yankees in the AL East.

NATIONALS 8, ORIOLES 1 BALTIMORE (AP) — Matt Adams and Juan Soto

homered and rookie Austin Voth extended a streak of strong performances by Washington’s rotation in a win over neighboring Baltimore. Washington has won 13 of 16. Voth (1-0) allowed one run and four hits over six innings. He walked one and hit two batters, all in an eventful but scoreless first inning. Adams’s home run off Asher Wojciechowski (0-3) made him the 102nd player in the 28-year history of Camden Yards to hit a ball onto Eutaw Street, beyond the right field wall and in front of the B&O Warehouse.

for the lone run for Baltimore.

MARLINS 12, PADRES 7 MIAMI (AP) — Brian Anderson hit a three-run homer in the first inning and Miami dealt San Diego its fourth straight loss. The Padres (45-49) fell four games under .500 for the first time this season. Harold Ramirez had two doubles, two RBIs and two runs scored. Garrett Cooper hit his 11th homer and a tworun single, and Starlin Castro had a bases-loaded triple to make it 11-3 in the sixth. Jordan Yamamoto (4-0) struggled early and needed 99 pitches to get through five innings, but he gave up only two earned runs. Padres rookie Logan Allen (2-2) had his second rough start in a row, allowing seven runs in 2 1/3 innings.

PIRATES 3, CARDINALS 1 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Colin Moran drove in the go-ahead run with an infield single and Pittsburgh Pirates scored twice in the ninth to beat St. Louis. Francisco Liriano (4-1) pitched the eighth and earned the victory. Felipe Vazquez pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 21st save. Carlos Martinez (2-1) worked one inning of relief and took the loss. With the score tied 1-1 and one out in the top of the ninth, Starling Marte reached base when he was hit in the back with a pitch by Martinez. Josh Bell beat the shift with a single to the left side of second base, sending Marte to third. Moran hit a sharp grounder to Kolten Wong, who made a diving stop and rose to one knee, but his throw was not in time as Moran slid safely into first and Marte scored for a 2-1 lead.

DIAMONDBACKS 9, RANGERS 2 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rookie Alex Young allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings to help Arizona beat Texas. Young (3-0) gave up three hits and one walk to defeat Lance Lynn (12-5), who went into the game with an 8-0 home record this season and led the majors in wins. Young struck out four and was lifted following 79 pitches. The Diamondbacks have won five of seven. Ketel Marte’s two-run single with the bases loaded in the fifth inning broke a 1-1 tie for Arizona. Ildemaro Vargas added a two-run home run, and the Diamondbacks scored four times in the ninth inning aided by two Rangers errors.

ROYALS 11, WHITE SOX 0 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Glenn Sparkman pitched a five-hitter for his first career complete game, Whit Merrifield and Hunter Dozier each had three hits including a home run as Kansas City blanked Chicago. Sparkman (3-5) walked one and had a career-high eight strikeouts in the Royals’ first complete-game shutout since June 2, 2017, when Jason Vargas beat Cleveland 4-0. Kansas City improved to 4-1 since the All-Star break and dropped the White Sox to 0-5. Merrifield raced to an inside-the-park homer down the right-field line in the fourth inning after Cam Gallagher doubled.

METS 3, TWINS 2 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Michael Conforto went 4 for 4 and drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out single in the fifth inning, helping New York over Minnesota. Conforto even made the defensive play of the game, a graceful leaping grab at the top of the wall in left-center to end the third with a runner on and take away a potential homer from Nelson Cruz. Jonathan Schoop homered for the Twins. Luis Avilán (2-0) picked up the victory. Edwin Díaz survived a tense ninth for his 21st save in 25 attempts. Michael Pineda (6-5) allowed one earned run for the fifth time in his last six starts. Pineda finished six

Peninsula Clarion innings for the third straight turn, allowing six hits without a walk.

CUBS 4, REDS 3, 10 INNINGS CHICAGO (AP) — Kyle Schwarber hit a solo home run with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning to rally Chicago past Cincinnati. Schwarber stroked a 1-1 pitch from closer Raisel Iglesias (2-8) into the basket in front of the left field bleachers for his 21st homer. Robel Garcia and Kris Bryant also connected for the NL Central leaders, who have won six of eight. Eugenio Suárez homered for Cincinnati, which fell to 7-4 against Chicago this season. Steve Cishek (3-5) pitched the 10th and four Cubs relievers combined for four scoreless innings.

BREWERS 13, BRAVES 1 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Christian Yelich hit his second career grand slam, Keston Hiura and Lorenzo Cain each had a solo homer and Milwaukee routed Atlanta.

Mike Moustakas picked up his 1,000th career hit with a single to right-center field in the seventh. Bryse Wilson (1-1) allowed four runs and six hits in four innings for the Braves. He became the youngest pitcher to start a game in the National League this season at 21 years, 208 days.

GIANTS 8, ROCKIES 4, 10 INNINGS DENVER (AP) — Alex Dickerson had a career-best four hits, including the go-ahead RBI single in San Francisco’s four-run 10th inning. Mike Yastrzemski homered and doubled among his three hits and had three RBIs for the Giants, who have won seven of eight, including four in a row. Trevor Story and Ian Desmond homered for the Rockies, who have lost 10 of 12.

ATHLETICS 9, MARINERS 2 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — All-Star Matt Chapman homered and had five RBIs and Oakland won its fifth straight. Matt Olson followed Chapman’s fifth-inning drive with a solo homer that extended his hitting streak to 11 games, marking the seventh time the A’s hit back-to-back homers this year. Daniel Mengden (5-1) allowed one run and four hits over seven impressive innings, striking out three and not walking a batter for the third straight start. Omar Narvaez hit two homers for the Mariners.

ANGELS 7, ASTROS 2 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Albert Pujols hit a basesclearing double during a six-run first inning and Los Angeles remained unbeaten in five games since the AllStar break. Mike Trout missed his second straight game with a mildly strained right calf, but Shohei Ohtani and Luis Rengifo also drove in firstinning runs in Los Angeles’ eighth victory in 11 games since the death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs.

Nicholas Castellanos accounted for the Tigers’ only hit with a leadoff single up the middle in the fifth inning off Tyler Clippard. Detroit had two baserunners and sent 28 batters to the plate — one above the minimum. Plesac worked the first three innings, while Clippard, Nick Goody and Tyler Olson pitched two innings apiece. Plesac walked Victor Reyes to begin the game, then erased him with his MLB-leading fifth pickoff. Goody (1-0) retired six straight batters in the sixth and seventh to earn his first victory since June 17, 2017.

5 — to become eligible for World Golf Championships he once took for granted. It led to more golf than he wanted to play. “So this year I made a conscious effort to cut back on my schedule to make sure that I don’t play too much,” he said. “I want to play here as long as I possibly can. And you have to understand, if I play a lot, I won’t be out here that long.” The trick now is to figure out how much he needs to compete in tournaments to

The wind has not been the prevailing direction for two days of practice, and it hasn’t been much wind at all. The forecast? Take a pick. One bulletin provided by the R&A said the tournament days would feature “changeable conditions continuing with showers or longer spells of rain interspersed with drier and brighter interludes.” It concluded by saying, “Confidence low in any details at this stage.” That was about as clear as picking who stands the best

Today in History Today is Wednesday, July 17, the 198th day of 2019. There are 167 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: On July 17, 1996, TWA Flight 800, a Europe-bound Boeing 747, exploded and crashed off Long Island, New York, shortly after departing John F. Kennedy International Airport, killing all 230 people on board. On this date: In 1821, Spain ceded Florida to the United States. In 1862, during the Civil War, Congress approved the Second Confiscation Act, which declared that all slaves taking refuge behind Union lines were to be set free. In 1918, Russia’s Czar Nicholas II and his family were executed by the Bolsheviks. In 1944, during World War II, 320 men, two-thirds of them AfricanAmericans, were killed when a pair of ammunition ships exploded at the Port Chicago Naval Magazine in California. In 1945, following Nazi Germany’s surrender, President Harry S. Truman, Soviet leader Josef Stalin and British Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill began meeting at Potsdam in the final Allied summit of World War II. In 1954, the two-day inaugural Newport Jazz Festival, billed as “The First American Jazz Festival,” opened in Rhode Island; among the performers the first night was Billie Holiday, who died in New York on this date in 1959 at age 44. In 1955, Disneyland had its opening day in Anaheim, California. In 1961, Baseball Hall-of-Famer Ty Cobb died in Atlanta at age 74. In 1975, an Apollo spaceship docked with a Soyuz spacecraft in orbit in the first superpower link-up of its kind. In 1981, 114 people were killed when a pair of suspended walkways above the lobby of the Kansas City Hyatt Regency Hotel collapsed during a tea dance. In 1997, Woolworth Corp. announced it was closing its 400 remaining five-and-dime stores across the country, ending 117 years in business. In 2014, all 298 passengers and crew aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 were killed when the Boeing 777 was shot down over rebelheld eastern Ukraine. Ten years ago: Former CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite died in New York at 92. Bombs ripped through two luxury hotels in Jakarta, Indonesia, killing seven victims and wounding at least 50 more. The space shuttle Endeavour arrived at the international space station to deliver the third and final component of a billion-dollar Japanese lab. Gordon Waller, of the pop duo Peter and Gordon, died in Norwich, Connecticut, at 64. Five years ago: Eric Garner, an unarmed black man accused of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes, died shortly after being wrestled to the ground by New York City police officers; a video of the takedown showed Garner repeatedly saying, “I can’t breathe.” (Garner’s family received $5.9 million from the city in 2015 to settle a wrongful death claim.) All 298 passengers and crew aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 were killed when the Boeing 777 was shot down over rebel-held eastern Ukraine; both Ukraine’s government and pro-Russian separatists denied responsibility. Broadway performer Elaine Stritch, 89, died in Birmingham, Michigan. One year ago: Amid criticism from within his own party, President Donald Trump said he had simply misspoken when he said during his summit with Vladimir Putin that he saw no reason to believe Russia had interfered in the 2016 U.S. election. Former President Barack Obama, speaking in South Africa, denounced Trump’s policies without mentioning his name; Obama took aim at the “politics of fear, resentment, retrenchment,” and decried leaders who are caught lying and “just double down and lie some more.” Alex Bregman and George Springer hit back-to-back homers in the 10th inning, and the American League beat the National League 8-6 in an All-Star Game that included a record 10 home runs.

I’d be grateful if values well before their Dear Abby children are tempted you could share details Jeanne Phillips to experiment. My of the publication you have for this purpose booklet “What Every and how to get it.

It can be ordered by sending your name DEAR GRANDMOM: Many and mailing address, plus check parents find the subject of sex or money order for $8 (U.S. funds) embarrassing, so they postpone to Dear Abby Teen Booklet, P.O. discussing it with their children.

questions that might arise. Among the important topics included are: “How old must a girl be before she can get pregnant?” “How old must a boy be before he can father a child?” Other topics, including peer pressure, dating, STDs, drugs and alcohol, are also covered. My booklet has been used to promote discussions by educators and religious leaders and distributed by doctors’ offices. The more information his parents can provide, the better prepared your grandson will be to make informed choices in the future. I hope my booklet will be a helpful tool for facilitating the many conversations his parents will have with their son. DEAR ABBY: My son recently died in an accident. His death was unexpected and shocking, and we are all heartbroken, especially his

She says things like, “’Danny’ and I were meant to be.” It makes me think I should tell her the truth. But I’m afraid if I do, it will affect our friendship and break her heart again. What do you think? Should she know or not — TREADING LIGHTLY DEAR TREADING: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your son. Because the tragedy is recent, I see nothing to be gained by shattering her illusion. If you feel she’s isolating herself, remind her that Danny would want her to go on with her life as do you. Assure her you will always be there for her if she needs you.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH Honor a feeling of being drained. Even if you feel that you can complete a task well, don’t take on anything that demands high energy. When a disagreement starts, listen, but postpone a decision. Be careful with financial dealings. Tonight: Do only what you want.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

and have a long-overdue chat.

HHH You might hit an unanticipated obstacle around work or when dealing with a community-related matter. Instead of espousing a stubborn stance, listen to and evaluate what you hear. Your flex counts! Tonight: You might surprise yourself with a choice.

HHH How you work with a situation depends on how much time you have. At this moment, certain daily responsibilities could be overly demanding. If you’re facing a question that you don’t have an answer to, reach out for experts. Tonight: Time for you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

HHHH If you hit a snafu, such as a person who seems closed down, then tap into your creativity. Know that you can open this person up, but an important talk could need to happen. Ask yourself about the timing. Tonight: Spend time with a special friend or child.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

HHH Demands come in from the homefront, some real estate or a roommate. Know that you can deal with what’s coming up; nevertheless, you could be overwhelmed by your responsibilities and the dynamics of certain interactions. Tonight: Stay cloistered at home.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Others appear to be more flexible than they have been recently. You might opt to have a difficult conversation, but you might find that another person has not really settled in after recent events. Tonight: Accept a fun invitation.

Dear Heloise: I have a question about when a recipe calls for WINE as an ingredient. I need to know what to substitute. I don’t think you can just leave it out, as I think it is supposed to be there as an acid. I can’t find a substitute list for it in any of my cookbooks. — Susan E., Dayton, Ohio Susan, yes, there are substitutes. For red wine, try: * Red wine vinegar. * Grape, pomegranate or cranberry juice. For white wine, try: * White wine vinegar. * Lemon juice. Happy cooking! — Heloise

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You might feel tired, perhaps from yesterday’s eclipse or simply not getting enough R and R. You know how to change that feeling. Consider taking a day or two off. Everyone needs a break sometime. Tonight: Return calls. Catch up on news.

Add cream of tartar, baking soda and salt, and sift again. Measure brown sugar and pack it into the cup lightly. Mix the oil and sugar by creaming together. Add beaten egg and vanilla. Mix well. Blend in dry ingredients gradually, adding the nuts last. (If the batter seems thick, add 1/2 cup water.) Shape into a roll. Wrap in waxed paper and chill. After chilling, remove from waxed paper. Cut into thin slices. Bake in oven at 375 F for 8 to 10 minutes.

This year, you might have the best intentions, but somehow, others might not always hear you at first. Your communication skills develop to a new peak; you’re able to make a difference, but perhaps not in the way that you envisioned. If single, you could be quite the social butterfly. You often find that a dating choice could involve friendships or friends. This year, if you emphasize friendship, you might feel more comfortable in a relationship. If you’re attached, your relationship builds in strength because of an evolving friendship. You and your partner often have different viewpoints, but you respect each other’s differences. You also enjoy each other’s personalities. If you want a great friend, find an AQUARIUS. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

absolutely beautiful in Cooper,” she said. Katy Borchers is a Cooper Landing local and manager of Alaska Heavenly Lodge. She said the lodge has had to deal with only one cancellation, but said a smoky Cooper Landing was not the experience she wanted her guests to have. “… (Where) you can’t even see the mountains across the river,” Borchers said. Borchers was raised in Interior Alaska, where wildfires are common. She’s been living on the peninsula for 10 years now, and said she’s never seen anything like this. “Because of the geographic features, the smoke just rolls in and sits in the valley here with the river,” she said. “It’s going to have an economic impact for sure, especially

in our little community.” She said she understand wildfires are part of summer and is understanding in regard to local agencies allowing the Swan Lake Fire to burn, ensuring it’s safer in the future. “But, it’s difficult to swallow when it’s 100,000 acres,” she said. “This is where we all live and are raising our families. I have to monitor how much my 6-year-old plays outside.” Despite the smoke, Borchers said guests have been fantastic and understanding. She said they’ve been forthcoming with guests and updating them on fire activity that may impact any excursions their guests may go on. Cooler weather and shifting winds have offered relief to the community this week, she said. “We’ve all been getting out as much as possible, while the smoke is gone,” Borchers said. “We’re letting guests know when they should plan to be outside.” The small community is a popular fishing spot, located at the

fire puts it at 100,812 acres. Four hundred and forty one personnel are assigned to the fire, and 50% of the management team’s objectives have been completed. Incident meteorologist Julia Ruthford said that the rain from this weekend was not significant enough to slow the spread of the fire, but increased humidity has made some fuels less susceptible to burning. Later this week hotter, drier temperatures are expected to return. Ruthford said that the temperature could be above 80 degrees again by Thursday. Open fires and campfires are prohibited on the Kenai Peninsula and in other areas of Alaska. Portions of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and the Chugach National Forest remained closed as well, and current closures can be found at http:// kenai.fws.gov or http:// www.fs.usda.gov/news/ chugach/news-events.

muscled the resolution through the chamber by 240-187 over near-solid GOP opposition. The rebuke was an embarrassing one for Trump even though it carries no legal repercussions, but if anything his latest harangues should help him with his diehard conservative base. Despite a lobbying effort by Trump and party leaders for a unified GOP front, four Republicans voted to condemn his remarks: moderate Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Fred Upton of Michigan, Will Hurd of Texas and Susan Brooks of Indiana, who is retiring. Also backing the measure was Michigan’s independent Rep. Justin Amash, who left the GOP this month after becoming the party’s sole member of Congress to back a Trump impeachment inquiry. Democrats saved one of the day’s most passionate moments until near the end. “I know racism when I see it,” said Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, whose skull was fractured at the 1965 “Bloody Sunday” civil rights march in Selma,

headwaters of the Kenai River. The community experienced a banner opening for sockeye salmon on the Russian River this month. Erick Fish is an owner and guide of Fish and Sons Kenai Charters. He said despite the incredible fishing season the area is having, he has seen his business impacted by the smoke. “(The smoke) got us a little bit,” he said. “We’ve had a few cancellations, not too much. There is so much salmon running, so people suffered through it.” At the Kingfisher Roadhouse, a restaurant sitting near the shores of Kenai Lake, business is down by around a third, Chef Katherine O’Leary-Cole said. “But, we’ve heard it’s much worse at other businesses,” O’Leary-Cole said. “Thank goodness smoke is clearing. Hopefully, we can salvage something from this season.” Many independent travelers decide where they’ll visit when they get here. Borchers believes many of

Alabama. “At the highest level of government, there’s no room for racism.” Before the showdown roll call, Trump characteristically plunged forward with timetested insults. He accused his four outspoken critics of “spewing some of the most vile, hateful and disgusting things ever said by a politician” and added, “If you hate our Country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave !” — echoing taunts long unleashed against political dissidents rather than opposing parties’ lawmakers. The president was joined by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California and other top Republicans in trying to redirect the focus from Trump’s original tweets, which for three days have consumed Washington and drawn widespread condemnation. Instead, they tried playing offense by accusing the four congresswomen — among the Democrats’ most left-leaning members and ardent Trump critics — of socialism, an accusation that’s already a central theme of the GOP’s 2020 presidential and congressional campaigns. Even after two-and-a-half years of Trump’s turbulent governing style, the spectacle

Doug Collins of Georgia, Republicans moved to have her words stricken from the record, a rare procedural rebuke. After a delay exceeding 90 minutes, No. 2 House Democrat Steny Hoyer of Maryland said Pelosi had indeed violated a House rule against characterizing an action as racist. Hoyer was presiding after Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri stormed away from the presiding officer’s chair, lamenting, “We want to just fight,” apparently aimed at Republicans. Even so, Democrats flexed their muscle and the House voted afterward by party line to leave Pelosi’s words intact in the record. Some rank-and-file GOP lawmakers have agreed that Trump’s words were racist, but on Tuesday party leaders insisted they were not and accused Democrats of using the resulting tumult to score political points. Among the few voices of restraint, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Trump wasn’t racist, but he also called on leaders “from the president to the speaker to the freshman members of the House” to attack ideas, not the people who espouse them. “There’s been a consensus that political rhetoric has gotten way, way heated across the political spectrum,” said the Republican leader from Kentucky, breaking his own two days of silence on Trump’s attacks. Hours earlier, Trump tweeted, “Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!” He wrote that House Republicans

independent travelers,” she said. “They chose to go somewhere else. There is going to be an impact, but we’ll weather the storm.”

should “not show ‘weakness’” by agreeing to a resolution he labeled “a Democrat con game.” Rep. Alexandria OcasioCortez of New York, one of Trump’s four targets, returned his fire. “You’re right, Mr. President - you don’t have a racist bone in your body. You have a racist mind in your head and a racist heart in your chest,” she tweeted. The four-page Democratic resolution said the House “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.” It said Trump’s slights “do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.” All but goading Republicans, the resolution included a full page of remarks by President Ronald Reagan, who is revered by the GOP. Reagan said in 1989 that if the U.S. shut its doors to newcomers, “our leadership in the world would soon be lost.” Tuesday’s faceoff came after years of Democrats bristling over anti-immigrant and racially incendiary pronouncements by Trump. Those include his kicking off his presidential campaign by proclaiming many Mexican migrants to be criminals and asserting there were “fine people” on both sides at a 2017 neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned deadly. And the strong words in Washington come as actions are underway elsewhere: The administration has begun coast-to-coast raids targeting migrants in the U.S. illegally and has newly restricted access to the U.S. by asylum seekers. Trump’s criticism was aimed at four freshman Democrats who have garnered attention since their arrival in January for

their outspoken liberal views and thinly veiled distaste for Trump: Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. All were born in the U.S. except for Omar, who came to the U.S. as a child after fleeing Somalia with her family. The four have waged an increasingly personal clash with Pelosi over how assertively the House should try restraining Trump’s ability to curb immigration. But if anything, Trump’s tweets may have eased some of that tension, with Pelosi telling Democrats at a closeddoor meeting Tuesday, “We are offended by what he said about our sisters,” according to an aide who described the private meeting on condition of anonymity. That’s not to say that all internal Democratic strains are resolved. The four rebellious freshmen backed Rep. Steven Cohen of Tennessee in unsuccessfully seeking a House to vote on a harsher censure of Trump’s tweets. And Rep. Al Green of Texas was trying to force a House vote soon on whether to impeach Trump — a move he’s tried in the past but lost, earning opposition from most Democrats. At the Senate Republicans’ weekly lunch Tuesday, Trump’s tweets came up and some lawmakers were finding the situation irksome, participants said. Many want the 2020 campaigns to focus on progressive Democrats’ demands for governmentprovided health care, abolishing the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and other hard-left policies. “Those ideas give us so much material to work with and it takes away from our time to talk about it,” Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana said of Trump’s tweets.

Anchorage center unveils largest state rooftop solar project

expected to hold public hearings to a draft environmental impact statement for an Alaska-specific Roadless Rule later this year. Christiansen was receptive to concerns over timber supplies for commercial logging, said Alaska Pulp Corporation executive Frank Roppel. “We were encouraged that there’s some interest and willingness to try and help the industry,” Roppel said. Tribal leaders in Ketchikan offered the visitors a different perspective. “We prefer that there is no change the forest plan and I think most of the tribes are going that way,” said Ronald Leighton, president of the Organized Village of Kasaan.

ANCHORAGE — Anchorage has unveiled the state’s largest rooftop solar project at the Egan Civic and Convention Center, a report said. The project is also the first effort by the municipality to operate a large rooftop solar power project, Alaska Public Media reported Monday. The project’s 216 solar panels are expected to power up to 9% of the convention center’s electricity needs for the year, officials said. The $200,000 project was funded from a pool set aside for capital improvements from the Convention Center Room Tax Fund. The project is expected to save the center between $20,000 and $25,000 annually, said Stephen Trimble, CEO of Arctic Solar Ventures. — Associated Press
