Man sentenced in shooting death KETCHIKAN — A 28-year old Ketchikan man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison for the shooting death of a man at a Prince of Wales logging camp. The Ketchikan Daily News reported that Timothy Murphy was sentenced Friday to 38 years, with 18 years suspended, in connection with the October 2017 death of 64-yearold Brian Stanton. Murphy pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in March. Prosecutors say Murphy shot Stanton twice in the back of the head in a bunkhouse at the logging camp 15 miles from Hydaburg. According to the presentencing report, a psychological evaluation confirmed Murphy was schizophrenic. The report says Murphy feared people at the logging camp were participating in cannibalism.

Budget cuts may lead to more homeless in camps, cars ANCHORAGE — State budget cuts could mean an increase in the number of homeless people in Anchorage living outside, officials said. Vetoes of homeless services funding by Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy may force more people to live in camps and cars, The Anchorage Daily News reported Saturday. Dunleavy last month vetoed 182 line items equaling $444 million in cuts to the state operating budget. The cuts reduced support for homeless programs by 85%, from $14.1 million to $2.6 million, the newspaper reported. Most of Anchorage’s homeless population has been housed in various types of shelter, officials said. The vetoes could increase the number of people outside from between 100 and 300 to between 800 and 1,000 over the next 12 months. The cuts could also affect children, pregnant women, elderly, sick, disabled, and seriously mentally ill people, service providers said. Anchorage should raise the money to fill the gap See news, Page A3

House fails to fund state budget By Peter Segall Juneau Empire

For the second time in as many days, the Alaska Legislature failed to pass a spending bill, leaving dozens of state programs without funding, and hundreds of millions in federal matching funds just out of reach. House Speaker Bryce Edgmon, I-Dillingham, said in a press release Monday that the House will, “hold a vote to rescind previous action on S.B. 2002 to get the thirtieth vote,” either from members who previously voted no or from absent members, the release said. Rescinding the vote would mean the Legislature would “undo” a previous vote with a simple majority. However, that would still leave the Legislature needing the 30 votes necessary to fund House Bill 2002 from the Constitutional Budget Reserve. At the end of the state’s fiscal year on June 30, a number of state accounts for various programs are automatically drained and their funds moved into the CBR, a process known as “the sweep.” The Legislature typically votes to reverse this sweep as part of its capital budget. But this year, in addition to no vote to reverse the sweep, Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s administration has added a number of accounts to the list of sweepable funds. Accounts not previously on

the list and currently without funding are the accounts which support the Alaska Performance Scholarship, which provides money for students to attend universities in the state, and the Power Cost Equalization program, which provides subsidies for heating costs in rural areas.

The House voted Sunday for the same bill, and while the bill itself required only a simple majority, 20 votes, to pass, funding the bill from the CBR requires three-fourths, or 30 votes. The end tally on Monday was 29-7, adding four yea votes from Sunday.

Voting against the bill were Reps. David Eastman, R-Wasilla, Sharon Jackson, R-Eagle River, Delena Johnson, R-Palmer, Colleen Sullivan-Leonard, R-Wasilla, Cathy Tilton, R-Wasilla, Sarah Vance, R-Homer and Tammie See budget, Page A2

Crews close in on containing fire Names of shooting victims released By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

After three days of no substantial growth on the Swan Lake Fire, fire crews completed 72% of their containment objectives Monday. Crews spent the day Sunday removing hoses and water pumps along the containment line in areas where there is a reduced threat of the fire spread, according to the latest update from the Eastern Area Incident Management Team. Helispots were repaired by scattering the log pad and pulling brush back over the area, and wood chippers were used to remove brush piles along secondary containment lines. Helicopters dropped water See fire, Page A3

biologist for the Department of Fish and Game, Colton Lipka, said. The bag and possession limits go into effect at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday. The bag and possession limit will stay into effect until Dec. 31.

Kenai Police have released the names of two women killed in a shooting in a Kenai home. The victims are mother and daughter Rachelle M. Armstrong, 60, and Lisa M. Rutzebeck, 39, both of Kenai, according to an update released Monday morning by the Kenai Police Department. Police responded to reports of a shooting at a home on California Avenue early Sunday morning. California Avenue is located near Wildwood Correctional Complex and Cook Inlet View Drive in north Kenai. The deceased have been transferred to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy and next of kin have been notified. In an initial statement released Sunday, police said that the shooting happened in the early morning

Kasilof River dipnetting area expanded, bag and possession limit increased By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

The Department of Fish and Game is increasing the Kasilof River bag and possession limit for sockeye salmon to six fish per day and 12 fish in possession. No more than two

salmon per day and two in possession may be coho salmon, a Monday press release from the Department of Fish and Game said. “Increasing the limits for sockeye salmon allows anglers an opportunity to harvest additional fish to fill their freezer,” area management

Financial crisis opens university to layoffs By Dan Joling Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — The University of Alaska Board of Regents decided Monday they could no longer wait to see if the Alaska Legislature will bail them out from severe budget cuts inflicted by Gov. Mike Dunleavy. Meeting in an emergency session, regents voted 10-1 to allow administrators to expedite layoffs of tenured faculty, end programs and take other measures to cut expenses. Declaring the financial emergency is a terrible blow to the university’s reputation, said regent President John Davies. Faculty considering a

job would think twice about accepting one, he said, but at this point, the university’s financial situation is not a secret. “The national headlines are already out there,” he said. “Those faculty members are already choosing not to come. Students are choosing not to come.” Moving forward without action was no longer a choice, Davies said. “We have to, in effect, plan for the worst and hope for the best, at this point,” he said after the vote. Dunleavy, a first-term Republican governor who took office in December, used his line-item veto pen on June 28 to slash more than $400 million from the state operating budget approved

by the Legislature. About one-third of his vetoes were directed at the university. Along with a $5 million cut made by legislators, the university saw its state funding fall by $136 million, a cut of 41% that took effect three days later with the start of the new fiscal year. That translated into reductions of $11 million each month for the next year. Continuing to delay a decision on how to reduce expenses would compound the problem and require greater cuts later, said UA President Jim Johnsen. Layoffs are inevitable because most of the budget is devoted to people, he said. The regents could vote on what to

cut in September. Johnson asked regents for direction on how to plan and gave them three alternatives: cut entire campuses, cut each campus proportionately, or come up with a new university structure that makes strategic cuts with fewer programs offered at fewer locations, larger class sizes and consolidated administration. Regents opted to receive more information on the latter two and will meet again July 30. The university has main campuses in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Juneau and 13 satellite campuses.

As of Sunday, a total of 231,900 sockeye salmon have passed the Kasilof River sonar site. The current escapement of sockeye salmon in the Kasilof River is proceeding at a rate projected to exceed the biological escapement goal. In addition to increasing bag and possession limits, the Department of Fish and Game also issued an emergency order expanding the area open to dipnetting. Dipnetting from the shore will be allowed in an expanded area, from Department of Fish and Game markers on Cook Inlet beaches upstream to the Sterling Highway Bridge.

Wilson, R-North Pole. Several members of the Republican minority voted in favor of the bill. House Minority Leader Lance Pruitt, R-Anchorage voted in favor of the bill after having voted it down just the day before on Sunday. “This bill not passing is having immediate impacts, and Alaskans are understandably nervous and angry as they witness continuing gridlock in Juneau. Jobs, scholarships, and vital services are all on the line,” Speaker Edgmon said in a press release. “We are not giving up hope. We thank everyone who voted for the capital budget and for the growing commitment to find compromise on this issue and the many other challenges ahead.” Also on Monday, the University of Alaska Board of Regents voted to declare financial exigency, a legal tool that will al-

low the university system to make drastic cost cutting measures. The board voted 10-to-1 in favor of the declaration. The declaration of financial exigency takes no action in and of itself, it simply allows the Regents to make cost cutting decisions like laying-off tenured faculty, something that would not be possi-

ble under normal circumstances. The regents had delayed declaring exigency earlier this month, hoping for the passage of House Bill 2001 or similar legislation that could restore a significant amount if not all of the university’s funding. On July 17, Moody’s Corporation downgraded

the university’s credit rating, making the University of Alaska the second lowest rated flagship university in the nation, above only the University of Puerto Rico. In addition to lack of funding for the university system, vaccine programs, domestic violence and homelessness programs remain unfunded.

along hot spots in the Upper Jean Lake Area while crews continued to search for and extinguish hot spots up to 300 feet from the containment line. The remaining portion of the fire continues to be monitored closely by air. Although the fire experienced little growth over the past few days, hot and dry weather conditions leave the potential for some continued growth on the table. The Thurman and Mystery Creek drainages will produce smoke as the fire smolders, and interior pockets of unburned fuel may continue to burn and produce smoke until a season-ending precipitation occurs. As fire activity decreases, some fire crews, support staff and equipment will demobilize. The fire is approximately 102,027 acres in size and is staffed by 341 personnel. The fire is burning about 5.5 miles east of Sterling in an area of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge that has not seen a fire since 1947. A community meeting regarding the fire and smoke conditions will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday at Cooper Landing Elementary School. For more information regarding the fire or the community meeting, contact the incident management team at 208-391-3488. Open fires, including campfires, are prohibited on federal lands including the Kenai National Wildlife and the Chugach National Forest, and portions of the Refuge and Chugach remained closed due to fire and smoke conditions. Current closures can be found at http://kenai.fws.gov or http://www.fs.esda.gov/ news/chugach/news-events. Campfires are permitted on state, municipal and private lands.

reductions would hit UA Fairbanks, where most research facilities are located, with a $67 million reduction. UA Anchorage, which serves the most students, would see a $47 million reduction. UA Southeast would be in line for a $10 million reduction. A majority of state lawmakers two weeks ago voted in favour of overriding Dunleavy vetoes but could not muster a three-fourths majority required to override. Legislators are currently meeting in a special session. Override supporters vowed to try to restore university money and hoped public pressure would change the minds of override opponents. Regent Lisa Parker cast the only vote against the declaration. She would not comment afterward, citing regent policy that says only the board president could speak for the board. Regent Karen Perdue said the public needs to understand how short the time is to make major institutional decisions while minimizing harm to students. “We not only have a moral obligation to students, we have a legal obligation to students in relation to our accreditation,” Perdue said. “When you think about students who are halfway through their course of study, and they’ve already spent a lot of money, and invested in us, to give them such a short notice, and finality, is just not acceptable.”

Anchorage television station KTUU reported the Matt Martyn took action because his four children use the bike path and he’s constantly concerned that a reckless driver could hurt them. Girdwood residents say drivers on the bike path are an ongoing safety hazard for pedestrians. They’ve called on state road officials to improve

safety along the path. Transportation Department spokeswoman Shannon McCarthy says state law does not allow residents to implement physical safety measures on state roads. The department says state law requires that only the department post signs along the pathway. There are 17 signs at intersections along the Alyeska Highway.

What others say

Too often, victims of sexual assault are denied justice After Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest, it was not a matter of “if,” but “when” Alexander Acosta would step down. Acosta, the Miami-raised U.S. secretary of Labor did resign on Friday — two days after he tried to make a logical case for the lenient deal he gave sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein; six days after Epstein’s arrest in New Jersey; six months after the Miami Herald Editorial Board first called for Acosta to resign. And 11 years after Acosta did so little to ensure Epstein — alleged to have sexually molested or raped dozens of young girls, some barely in their teens, at his mansion in Palm Beach County — landed in prison for a long time. Acosta broke faith with the young victims of whom Epstein took advantage. Acosta thought so little of them that he didn’t bother to inform them that Epstein was going to jail for a ridiculously short period of time. Just this past February, a federal judge in Florida ruled Acosta’s egregious misstep illegal. Now that he has resigned as labor secretary, how will Acosta be held accountable for that shameful lapse? Acosta also failed the broader public, letting the jet-setter whom he forced to register as a sexual offender be released after mere months in jail, free to continue his crimes if he desired, if not in Florida, then anywhere else in the world. Acosta did not deserve to be a public servant. The Epstein case hit a raw nerve with the public. Justice not only was delayed and denied. It was trampled upon. Of course, Epstein got a light tap on the wrist. Of course, his victims were kept in the dark. Of course, his money and his connections insulated him. Epstein’s case is singular because of the number of girls he sexually abused and trafficked, the gaudy depravity of his crimes and his high-voltage associations in politics, finance and the law. However, it’s also the same old story: the story of a powerful man and his powerless victims. The story of enablers who provided assistance and excuses. The story of men who were believed and women who were dismissed or intimidated into silence. Epstein was arrested on July 6 on charges of sex trafficking with minors in Florida and New York. He has been a registered sex offender since 2008, when he was convicted of soliciting a 14-year-old girl for prostitution. A pal of Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, Epstein could have faced federal charges in that 2008 case and 45 years behind bars. Instead, Acosta, then the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, agreed to a sweetheart plea deal. It was a third-rate consolation prize for victims and for the Palm Beach police and prosecutors who had worked the case. Last November, the Miami Herald published Julie K. Brown’s three-part series, “Perversion of Justice,” identifying 80 girls and young women whom Epstein had allegedly molested from 2001 to 2006. There is some evidence that Americans finally are becoming more serious about their response to sexual abuse. It can be found in the lengthening list of high-profile sex abusers who have lost the immunity they once enjoyed, in #MeToo and in the revulsion that greeted a New Jersey judge’s lenient sentence recently for a young rapist from “a good family.” But, of course, this is a country in which several women have credibly accused the president — the president! — of sexual violence, and the media have become blasé about it. According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, 63 percent of sexual assaults go unreported. Survivors remain silent because they dread being blamed, shamed and doubted — even though the NSVRC says the prevalence of false reporting is no greater in cases of sexual abuse than for other crimes. Most of those survivors never have the full attention of law enforcement. If they aren’t young white women with highprofile abusers, the odds of television crews showing up are low. Celebrity lawyers don’t leap to take their cases. Maybe the DNA evidence disappears into the backlog of unprocessed rape kits that exists in many states, leaving rapists free to continue their crimes. Rape suspects are innocent until proven guilty, and many are found guilty and receive tough sentences, but not enough. When one in four girls is sexually abused before her 18th birthday, according to the NSVRC, and when one in five women is raped during her lifetime, crimes of sexual violence and exploitation cannot be minimized or excused, no matter how rich or powerful the perpetrators — or how poor and nondescript the victims. — The Miami Herald, July 12

Trump says he’ll watch ‘a little’ of Mueller testimony By Jonathan Lemire Associated Press

NEW YORK — He won’t watch. Well, maybe just a little bit. President Donald Trump on Monday feigned indifference to Robert Mueller’s upcoming congressional testimony, an eyebrow-raising claim for a media-obsessed president who has been concerned for months about the potential impact of the former special counsel’s appearance. Much of Washington will stop in its tracks Wednesday as Mueller testifies on Capitol Hill for at least five hours, a nationally televised event that for many Americans will be their first detailed exposure to the former special counsel’s findings on Russia’s 2016 election interference. The Justice Department on Monday told Mueller his testimony should not go beyond information that has already been released publicly.

Let’s stop with the meaningless political labels I

f we’re going to insult each other, we should be accurate — or at least consistent. Actually, better that we just stop. Let’s look back to 1985, when then-Gov. Bill Sheffield nominated Bill Ross to serve as commissioner at the Department of Environmental Conservation. The House Republican minority that year included an assortment of anti-Sheffield, vocal and verbose conservatives. They attacked Ross as a “socialist” because, they said, he had been to Cuba. Never mind that Cuba’s leader, President Fidel Castro, was a selfavowed communist. “Socialist” must have sounded like a dirtier word to this crew. The rude, partisan and accusatory attacks continued because, well, maybe they were clairvoyant and were practicing for the future of social media. In those days, the legislative lounge was next door to the press room, where reporters used to type with all 10 fingers on full-size keyboards. Phones had cords. There were two pay phones in the building. And there were no online dictionaries. One day, a House minority member took a break from a discussion in the legislative lounge and stuck his head into the press room to sheepishly ask if anyone had a dictionary. It seems he and his demagoguing colleagues wanted to look up the difference between socialism and communism. They weren’t sure, though that hadn’t stopped them from criticizing the governor’s nominee. Here we are 34 years later in Alaska, still throwing around the word “socialism” like it’s some sort of Silly Putty that means whatever we want — yet always means something bad. I have read supporters of the unaffordable $3,000 Alaska Permanent Fund dividend call those who disagree

We’re 735,000 children, students, parents, grandparents, the homeless, elderly and sick. It’s time we thought about our communities more than our politics. with them socialists. And I have read supporters of a smaller, affordable dividend call their opponents socialists, too. Both sides can’t be socialists, can they? Former state legislator Dick Randolph of Fairbanks in an opinion column referred to “Democratic socialism” as the opposite of individual freedom. Does that mean “Republican socialism” is the same as individual freedom? Are there two different kinds of socialism in Alaska, one for Democrats and another for Republicans? One blogger called defenders of the $3,000 dividend “Alaska’s Snow Machine Socialists.” I think that was meant as an insult. I suppose maybe the blogger is implying that Alaskans use their dividends to buy new snowmachines, which means we could call some of those $3,000 PFDers Hot Tub Socialists, Medical Bill Socialists and College Savings Socialists. A reader comment on a meanspirited conservative Alaska website accused a supporter of higher oil taxes of practicing Socialism 101 for asserting that more oil taxes would solve Alaska’s budget problems. In simple terms, socialism calls for public ownership of property and resources, not private ownership. The community is a cooperative, and everyone who works is entitled to a share of the good life. Communism is where the government owns everything and is supposed to distribute the wealth more or less fairly — except Russian

President Vladimir Putin’s friends, who get extra supersize shares. I guess the permanent fund and the annual dividends are a form of socialism, in that a portion of Alaska’s resource wealth is held out for the public. That doesn’t make the PFD good or bad, it’s just a fact that the dividend is an individual benefit derived from a common asset. It doesn’t mean that supporters of a $3,000 dividend are socialists, any more than supporters of adequate funding for the university, homeless shelters and early childhood education programs are socialists. But how much goes to the individual and how much to the common good is the immobilizing political debate of the day — and we’re messing up our future big time. Let’s stop throwing around meaningless political labels. We’re 735,000 children, students, parents, grandparents, the homeless, elderly and sick. It’s time we thought about our communities more than our politics. It’s time for the Legislature — and governor — to adequately fund the programs that serve the common good, even though that means less funding for the individual want. That’s not socialism. It’s good public policy. Larry Persily is a longtime Alaska journalist, with breaks for federal, state and municipal jobs in oil and gas and taxes, including deputy commissioner at the Alaska Department of Revenue 1999-2003. He will teach journalism starting this fall at the University of Alaska Anchorage.

Restore funding for legal services to low-income Alaskans Since 1967, Alaska Legal Services Corporation has provided quality free civil legal services to low-income Alaskans. Beyond that, they provide training for those that need help in representing themselves. In both of these roles, that of advocate and teacher, the attorneys of ALSC help achieve justice and create a better Alaska. Recently, ALSC has been providing services to 8,000 clients a year in 197 rural and urban communities throughout Alaska. This year the Legislature appropriated $759,000 for ALSC. This money was vetoed. In the past, ALSC has had to turn away half of those who seek their help. This veto will only increase that ratio, to the detriment of Alaska’s people. Each year ALSC secures

millions of dollars in direct federal benefits for eligible families. This results in stimulated local spending and allows its clients to receive the benefits due them and actually saves the state and local budgets from having to step in and respond to these needs. I had been a superior court judge for 27 years when I retired seven years ago. I heard many cases represented by ALSC attorneys. They presented their client’s best case, made it easier for the opposing side to understand and negotiate, and made for a better, more efficient use of the courtroom. They greatly helped in achieving just results. Our justice system is better for the work of the Alaska Legal Services Corporation.

Fast-track deportation authority expanded By Elliot Spagat

SAN DIEGO — The administration U.S. authorities do not have of President Donald Trump space to detain “the vast majority” announced Monday that it will vastly of people arrested on the Mexican expand the authority of immigration border, leading to the release of officers to deport migrants without hundreds of thousands with notices allowing them to first appear before to appear in court, McAleenan judges, its second major policy shift said in the policy directive to be on immigration in eight days. published Tuesday in the Federal Starting Tuesday, fast-track Register. He said Homeland Security deportations can apply to anyone in officials with the new deportation the country illegally for less than two power will deport migrants in the years. Previously, those deportations country illegally more quickly were largely limited to people than the Justice Department’s arrested almost immediately after immigration courts, where cases * ® can take years to resolve. crossing the Mexican border.

McAleenan said. The American Civil Liberties Union and American Immigration Council said they would sue to block the policy. “Under this unlawful plan, immigrants who have lived here for years would be deported with less due process than people get in traffic court,” said Omar Jawdat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project. “Expedited removal” gives enforcement agencies broad authority to deport people without allowing them to appear before an immigration judge with limited exceptions, including if they express fear of returning home and pass an initial screening interview for asylum. The powers were created under a 1996 law but went largely unnoticed until 2004, when Homeland Security said it would be enforced for people who are arrested within two weeks of

entering the U.S. by land and caught within 100 miles of the border. The fast-track deportations have become a major piece of U.S. immigration enforcement over the last decade. Critics have said it grants too much power to immigration agents and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. The potential impact of the new measure is difficult to predict. McAleenan said 20,570 people arrested in the nation’s interior from October 2017 through September 2018 year had been in the U.S. less than two years, which would make them eligible for fast-track deportation under the new rule. Critics said the new measure’s impact could be more far-reaching because many in the U.S for longer than two years may be unable to prove they have been in the country for so long. “Expanding the fast-track

procedure to apply anywhere in the U.S. is a recipe for ripping thousands more families apart and devastating communities,” said Grace Meng, Human Rights Watch’s acting deputy U.S. director. “This is a massive and dangerous change.” The administration said the expanded authority will likely mean less time for migrants in detention while cases wind their way through immigration court. The average stay in immigration detention for people in fast-track removal was 11.4 days from October 2017 through September 2018, compared to 51.5 days for people arrested in the nation’s interior. The announcement was the second major policy shift in eight days following an unprecedented surge of families from Central America’s Northern Triangle of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

That only further angered his critics, who have mounted street demonstrations for more than a week. “The people are not going to go away,” said Johanna Soto, of the city of Carolina. “That’s what he’s hoping for, but we outnumber him.” Asked who was advising Rosselló on staying in office, Rosselló’s secretary of public affairs, Anthony Maceira, said the governor was

speaking with his family, and “that carries a great weight.” Rosselló’s father, Pedro, was governor from 1993 to 2001. The biggest newspaper in this territory of more than 3 million American citizens, El Nuevo Dia, added to the pressure with the frontpage headline: “Governor, it’s time to listen to the people: You have to resign.” Asked whether the governor should step down, President Donald Trump said that Rosselló is a “terrible” governor and that hurricane relief money sent to Puerto Rico has been “squandered, wasted and stolen” and the island’s top leadership is “totally, grossly incompetent.” The demonstrations represent the biggest protest movement on the island since Puerto Ricans rallied to put an end to U.S. Navy training on the island of Vieques more than 15 years ago.

Monday was the 10th consecutive day of protests, and more are being called for later in the week. The island’s largest mall, Plaza de las Américas, closed ahead of the protest, as did dozens of other businesses. The upheaval also prompted at least four cruise ships to cancel visits to Puerto Rico. The crisis has stirred fears about the effects on the already fragile economy. Puerto Rico is struggling to restructure part of its $70 billion in debt under federal supervision and deal with a 13-year recession through school closings, cutbacks in infrastructure maintenance and other austerity measures. At the same time, the island is trying to rebuild from Maria, which caused more than $100 billion in damage, threw Puerto Rico into a year-long blackout and left thousands dead, most of them succumbing during the sweltering aftermath.

Twins beat South, nab division crown Staff Report Peninsula Clarion

The American Legion Twins defeated South 4-2 on Sunday in Anchorage to wrap up the American Division title on the final day of the regular season. Both Post 20 and South finished with 13-5 records, but the Twins got the tiebreaker because they took both league games this season.

Twins coach Robb Quelland said the state tournament, which begins Friday, seeds all teams based on record regardless of division. Since the National Division had three teams finish with better records than the Twins, Quelland expects the Twins (21-11-1 overall) to get the No. 4 seed. The Twins started the road trip with a Friday loss to Service and a Saturday loss

to Ketchikan, but ended it by beating Ketchikan on Saturday and then nabbed the key victory Sunday. “At some point in the season, you’re going to have adversity,” Quelland said. “We didn’t come out and do what we were supposed to do in the first two games. “We collected our thoughts and talked about where we wanted to go and came out and played two games strong.”

The Twins jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the first inning against South. “They came out excited to play today,” Quelland said of his team. “South and Kenai have such a long history. “They were looking for some redemption after losing to us at our house.” The four runs would be all Mose Hayes needed. He worked 6 2-3 innings, giving up two runs on five hits while

walking five and striking out seven. Seth Adkins got the final out without allowing a hit or a run. “Again, he just comes out and does his work,” Quelland said of Hayes. “No highs, no lows. He came out and showed his dominance again.” Quelland added that Adkins did a great job calling the game behind the plate

and that it is good to see him healthy again. Hayes added two hits at the plate, while Tanner Ussing also added two hits. Also for the Twins, Jeremy Kupferschmid, David Michael and Davey Belger had hits. Belger also had two RBIs. Quelland added that Michael showed amazing range at shortstop by getting to two fly balls and another liner.

Angels’ Skaggs remembered SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney urged those at a private memorial service to remember a gift fallen teammate Tyler Skaggs gave to them. “Take a moment, close your eyes and think of a story or even an image that reminds you of all the good times you had with Ty,” Heaney said. “Take that memory and hold it in your hearts and in your minds. That is his lasting gift to everyone here.” Skaggs’ teammates and family gathered Monday at a Catholic church in his native Santa Monica to remember Skaggs, who was found dead in his hotel room in Texas on July 1. He died shortly before his 28th birthday. The mourners remembered

Lowry revs Irish crowd with win By Doug Ferguson AP Golf Writer

PORTRUSH, Ireland — No longer in the shadows of Irish golf, Shane Lowry now has his name etched on the base of the silver claret jug. It’s on there with more than a century’s worth of the best that have conquered the links to win the British Open. Lowry gazed at the oldest trophy in golf as he tried to soak up his storybook finish Sunday at Royal Portrush, a course wet first from rain and then from tears. “I can’t believe this is mine,” Lowry said after his six-shot victory . He earned his place with a 63 in the third round that broke the 54-hole scoring record at the British Open and staked him to a four-shot lead. And then he handled the nerves and expectations, both in abundance, and never let anyone closer than three shots. A year ago, Lowry sat in a parking lot

at Carnoustie and cried after missing the cut in the British Open for the fourth straight year. “Golf wasn’t my friend at the time,” he said. And there he was Sunday, in rain and wind so ferocious that pars felt like birdies, never giving anyone much of a chance as he closed with a 1-over 72 for the largest margin of victory in the Open in nine years. Lowry isn’t afraid to be honest, and he didn’t mind telling caddie Bo Martin that he was nervous, scared and worried he would mess up for a raucous, rollicking crowd that wanted nothing more than to celebrate with him. “I suppose I didn’t even know going out this morning if I was good enough to win a major,” Lowry said. “And look, I’m here now, a major champion. I can’t believe I’m saying it, to be honest.” So many others in the Irish golf community can.

Graeme McDowell recalls a story from famed swing coach Pete Cowen, who long ago traveled to Dublin to scout the Irish Boys golf team. They were curious about his views on the obvious star — a teenager named Rory McIlroy — except that Cowen saw more. “The guy said, ‘Who do you like?’ And he said, ‘Rory McIlroy looks pretty good, but that slightly overweight kid with the glasses on ... he looks good,’” McDowell said. “So he’s always been talented.” That kid was Lowry, so talented that he was still an amateur 10 years ago when he won the Irish Open at County Louth. McDowell remembers something else about that Irish Open, the first time he met Lowry. “I just shot 61 at Baltray, and he came in and shot 62,” McDowell said. “And he didn’t even introduce himself. He said, ‘I can’t believe you beat me by one out See open, Page A7

Skaggs as a beloved son, husband, teammate and friend whose upbeat personality brought joy to everyone around him. The altar was flanked by two large red-andwhite floral arrangements prominently featuring No. 45, Skaggs’ uniform number. Hundreds of attendees laughed and cried at the eulogies from 14 speakers. Several family members related stories of Skaggs as a precocious, upbeat kid who just happened to grow into a world-class athlete. “To Tyler’s parents and family, what an incredible job you did raising such a wonderful person,” said Padres pitcher Garrett Richards, a longtime teammate See skaggs, Page A7

Twins top Yankees in series opener MINNEAPOLIS — Mitch Garver hit two of Minnesota’s five home runs, and the Twins held on for an 8-6 victory over the New York Yankees after a tone-setting triple play in the first inning of a series opener between AL division leaders Monday night. Jorge Polanco, Nelson Cruz and Max Kepler also went deep, giving the Twins their eighth game with five or more homers this season. All but Garver’s second solo shot came off starter CC Sabathia (5-5), who lasted only four innings.

RED SOX 9, RAYS 4 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — J.D. Martinez homered and drove in four runs, including

an RBI double in the ninth inning following Tampa Bay’s curious decision to put a position player on the mound, and Boston beat the Rays. Eduardo Rodriguez (12-4) allowed two hits over seven scoreless innings to win his sixth straight decision. He limited the sputtering Rays to a pair of infield singles and four walks before being replaced by Nathan Eovaldi.

Lafleur, Johnson lead Peninsula athletes at Crow Pass Seward’s Hannah Lafleur and Erik

Johnson posted the top finishes for Kenai Peninsula athletes at the Crow Pass Crossing on Saturday. The race takes place on the 22.5-mile trail between Girdwood and Eagle River and gains and loses about 3,000 feet. Coming off her Mount Marathon Race victory on July 4, Lafleur took fourth in 3 hours, 45 minutes and 11 seconds, while Christy Marvin — who was second at Mount Marathon — won her fifth straight Crow Pass Crossing in 3:39:46. Lafleur told the Anchorage Daily News she was first to the top of Crow Pass about 3 miles in to the race and first to the midway point at Eagle River, but then she got lost, allowing other runners to pass her. The trail is not marked and can be hard to follow in certain sections. Julianne Dickerson, who now lives in Anchorage but was raised in Kenai and graduated from Wings Christian Academy in 2006, followed up her third-place finish at Mount Marathon by finishing sixth at 3:52:53. Johnson, who finished fifth at Mount Marathon, ran 3:20:00 to become the lone Peninsula runner in the top 10 by taking sixth. Johnson celebrated his 43rd birthday Sunday and was the only runner above 40 in the top 14. The victory went to Scott Patterson, an Alaska Pacific University and Olympic skier. Patterson ran

3:03:39 to win the race for a record sixth time. Arneson, Dickerson ace 12-peaks Challenge Lars Arneson, a 2009 graduate of Cook Inlet Academy, and Julianne Dickerson, a 2006 graduate of Wings Christian Academy, both made some noise recently in the 12-peaks Challenge, in which adventurers try to summit the 12 peaks higher than 5,000 feet in the front range of the Chugach Mountains near Anchorage as quickly as possible. Thursday, Arneson broke the previous speed record by completing the challenge in 14 hours, 41 minutes. The previous best was by Adam Jensen and Matt Shyrock in 2018 at 17:43. That had broken the record Arneson had set with Peter Mamrol in 2017 at 18:10. Arneson had finished third in the Mount Marathon Race in Seward on July 4. On July 12 and 13, Dickerson, April McAnly and Abby Jahn set the fastest known time for women on the 12-peaks Challenge at 23:50. The previous best, by Sophie Tidler, had been set in June at 26 hours. Dickerson had taken third at the Mount Marathon Race. She also grabbed sixth in the 22.5-mile Crow Pass Crossing on Saturday.

Cleveland beat Toronto to improve to 13-3 in July. Francisco Lindor drove in a pair of runs and Jason Kipnis had two hits and scored twice for the Indians, who are a major league-best 29-11 since June 4.

MILWAUKEE — Eugenio Suarez hit a pair of home runs, including a two-run, go-ahead shot in the ninth inning off Jeremy Jeffress as Cincinnati rallied past Milwaukee. Suarez had given Cincinnati a 4-1 lead when he took Adrian Houser deep with two out in the seventh.

ASTROS 11, ATHLETICS 1 HOUSTON — Gerrit Cole pitched seven strong innings and Aledmys Diaz, Yordan Alvarez and Yuli Gurriel homered as Houston jumped on Homer Bailey for nine runs early and sailed to a win over Oakland. Cole (11-5) yielded two hits and one run while striking out 11 to help Houston to its sixth straight win. Cole has won seven straight decisions, with his last loss coming on May 22.

CARDINALS 6, PIRATES 5 PITTSBURGH — Paul Goldschmidt hit his fifth career grand slam in the top of the 10th and right fielder Jose Martinez threw out the tying run at the plate to help St. Louis beat Pittsburgh. Goldschmidt took an offering from Clay Holmes (1-1) and sent it to the concourse that runs behind the wall in right-center field as the streaking Cardinals improved to 8-3 since the All-Star break. Goldschmidt’s 19th home run of the season was just enough after St. Louis closer Carlos Martinez nearly let a fourrun cushion get away.

there.’ And I’m like, ‘Who’s this kid?’” That kid is now “champion golfer of the year.” Lowry could barely contain his joy when he rolled in an 8-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole for a six-shot lead with three to play. He knew it was over when he found the fairway on the 17th because “I knew that I could really lose a ball from there.” The cheers got louder with each step closer to the finish line, and Lowry stretched out his arms when his second shot to the 18th was safely on the fringe. Waiting to celebrate with him was McDowell, a former U.S. Open champion who grew up at Portrush; Padraig Harrington, who preceded Lowry as the first Irishman to win a major; four-time major champion Brooks Koepka and his caddie, Rickie Elliott, also raised at Portrush and once

SAN FRANCISCO — Joe Panik hit a go-ahead double with two outs in a three-run eighth inning, and San Francisco continued its winning ways since the All-Star break by rallying past Chicago. Austin Slater doubled home the tying run, and Brandon Crawford hit an RBI single to help key the late comeback against Pedro Strop (2-4) as surprising San Francisco (51-50) won for the ninth time in 10 games and 16th in 19.

PHOENIX — Eduardo Escobar tripled twice, Adam Jones had three hits against his former team and Arizona beat Baltimore in the opener of a three-game series. Robbie Ray (9-6) struck out 10 in six innings, allowing three runs and eight hits for his fourth win in four starts. All four of his 10-strikeout games this season have come against AL teams. Greg Holland pitched the ninth inning for his 17th save.

a promising amateur in Irish golf. Lowry was asked earlier in the week if he felt like a forgotten Irishman. The return of the British Open to Northern Ireland for the first time in 68 years was all about McIlroy, McDowell and Darren Clarke, a trio of Ulstermen with major championships. No one in these parts — the largest Open crowd outside of St. Andrews — will forget Lowry and his performance. “Everyone knows we’re all one country when it comes to golf,” Lowry said. The names on the claret jug include Harry Vardon and Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. Lowry would be equally satisfied to see his name below Clarke and McIlroy, Harrington and Fred Daly. He held the jug aloft on the 18th green and said to crowd, “This one’s for you.” Lowry was headed home for a celebration — the Irish are known for that, too. “It’s not going to sink in for a couple of days, is it?” he said.

I feel so honored to have known and spent as much time with him as I did. He impacted me in so many areas of my life.

Old flame who stole items years ago turns up on Facebook DEAR ABBY: I recently located a person I knew a long time ago who stole an expensive gold bracelet from me. I’d dated this guy for a while. He wore my bracelet, and I wore his. My bracelet was a gift from a relative I cared for deeply. His bracelet was a piece of junk, but I was a teenager with no brains and allowed him to wear mine. Well, we split up and he just disappeared. I tried getting my bracelet back but couldn’t find him. As I mentioned, I found him on Facebook, married with children, and I felt this anger come over me. Should I contact him and ask what happened to my jewelry? — GOLDEN GIRL IN MISSISSIPPI DEAR GOLDEN GIRL: No, you should contact him and tell him you would like the item returned or be compensated for it. What “happened” to the bracelet was that he stole it. Because many years have passed since you two dated, the odds that he still has the bracelet are slim. But it’s worth a try.

DEAR ABBY: I am 16 and have a hard time making friends. I have more guy friends than girl friends, which causes me problems. I got called a slut again the other day because of it. I’m a virgin and only have a crush on one of the guys I hang out with (my boyfriend). I have tried finding more female friends, but the drama is really hard to put up with. I have tried ignoring the comments, but after a while it gets hard to ignore. I’m not sure what else to do. Please help me out. I would be really grateful. — MISUNDERSTOOD IN OKLAHOMA DEAR MISUNDERSTOOD: I wish I could make the name-calling go away, but I can’t. The perpetrator is most likely jealous because of the relationship you have with your boyfriend and other guy friends. Not everyone makes friends easily. It’s nothing to be ashamed of; it’s just a fact of life. That’s why you should treasure the ones you DO have —

because old friends are some of the best friends, and high school and its cliques won’t last forever. DEAR ABBY: Two years ago my family had a run of bad luck, which landed us in a homeless shelter. I got an apartment fairly quickly, and it’s mine and my daughter’s. My mother was supposed to move in rent-free, but she brought her boyfriend, who I didn’t want here. He’s still here and barely contributes to the expenses. I recently lost my job and he promised to help out more financially, but he hasn’t. He continues to mooch. This has caused so much stress between my mother and me. “Hate” is a strong word, but I hate him and want him out. He knows it, but makes no effort to leave. What can I do? — WANTING MY OWN SPACE DEAR WANTING: You are not helpless, and you shouldn’t be held hostage because of your mother’s

feelings for her deadbeat boyfriend. Contact your state bar association to see what your legal rights are. Then tell your mother you want him out, give her a deadline to see that it happens, and suggest that she go with him if she can’t bear to be separated from him. If he doesn’t meet the deadline, put his belongings in a box, place them outside and change your locks. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.Good advice for everyone — teens to seniors — is in “The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It.” To order, send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $8 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Anger Booklet, P.O.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHHH Your energy can easily be directed into a key project or the pursuit of an important desire. You can nearly wish upon a star and have a dream fulfilled. Try not to scatter your energy. Right now, you have the force with you! Tonight: Keep it light.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Stay as centered as possible. Listen to a loved one or close associate. He or she might be sharing

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH You return calls with promptness. You might feel a bit overwhelmed at the number of calls and the amount of news you receive. Know that there’s nothing you need to do; however, you being you, you will respond. Be open to a partner’s assessment and vision. Tonight: Express your upbeat attitude. It just might be contagious.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

19)

HHH One-on-one relating is highlighted. You could be surprised at what you accomplish with ease. Another associate would like to pitch in. You will make the ultimate call. Tonight: Share as much as you can.

HHHH Defer to a loved one or a dear friend who might be juggling various concerns. Ultimately, this person has the wherewithal to understand more of the different facets of a personal situation. Tonight: Be with a favorite person.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

HHH You might feel pressured to bring others together for an important or perhaps even frivolous call. Others depend on your gracious attitude and ability to understand them. You extend yourself in your normally positive manner. Tonight: Ignore any criticism you might hear.

HHH You have a lot to share, though at times you hold back. A boss, associate or even you yourself become unusually energized by a project. Try to avoid a disagreement and lessening others’ energy levels. Tonight: Curb any wild spending.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH You probably can feel the energy of the Sun entering your sign. You feel more upbeat and energized than you have for a long time. You have an unusually strong drive to accomplish whatever you are doing, especially if it is creative or involves children. Tonight: Accept an invitation to a “different” spot.

Rubes | Leigh Rubin

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You could be in the middle of a discussion of finances and daily needs. You might notice a higher-up or someone who could be domineering but successful. Give a second thought to this person’s perspective. He or she understands the situation. Tonight: Off to exercise stress away.

HHHH Even if you do not feel it, you are unusually fortunate at this point. Try not to avoid a positive risk. Your ability to draw others could be significant to a project. Others might come toward you. Tonight: Make the most of the moment.

SUNDAY DUE DAY Dear Heloise: I had a card payment due on the ninth; that was a Sunday. I assumed I could make the payment on Monday. Wrong! I incurred a late fee. I contacted the company on its website’s live chat and explained my situation. The representative could not have been nicer. He waived the fee (happy customer!), but let me know that the payment is required by midnight Eastern Time on the due date (regardless of the day of the week that it lands on) in order for it to be considered on time. — Julie W., New Braunfels, Texas Companies may have different policies on Sunday payments; glad your situation worked out well! You also can set up automatic bill payments with the company, or through your bank. — Heloise

wider net: career, family and personal achievement.

Dear Readers: The slower pace of summer allows us time to reflect on what we’ve achieved so far this year, and what GOALS we can still set. One way to look ahead is to create a dream or vision board. This is a collection of clippings from magazines and newspapers of motivating pictures and words and phrases, along with tangible samples (your friend’s subway ticket from New York City, or a concert ticket, postcard, keychain or refrigerator magnet, for example), which are adhered to a poster board that is typically displayed in your office or bedroom. Visualizing your goals can help you focus on them. A fun way to get started? Host a party; get some magazines together, several pairs of scissors, some poster board and rubber cement. Add delicious cheese and wine, set some GOALS and then make them happen. — Heloise P.S. Don’t focus on one subject, like travel; cast a

HHHHH You might not always be comfortable deferring to others. At the present moment, trust that others have good judgment and might be making stronger decisions than you are aware of. A meeting proves to be essential. Tonight: Hang with your friends.

hints from heloise Putting dreams into action

QUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

HHHHH You like deferring to others, especially if they are more gung-ho than you. A meeting proves to be beneficial to all parties involved. You will be pleased at how a discussion can put a difficult or chaotic situation to rest. Tonight: Where your friends are.

This year, you seem to be able to accomplish whatever you desire, within reason. Your charisma often speaks for you, and it certainly remains a positive. Your creativity and ability to come up with excellent ideas push you to the forefront. These qualities often define a situation. If you’re single, few would say no to a date with you. The opposite sex often becomes smitten by you. If you’re attached, your sweetie enjoys you and relishes being with you. Remember, a relationship is a two-way street. Give as much as your sweetie. ARIES responds to you with anger sometimes. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

Pioneering Native American author receives peace prize By Dan Sewell Associated Press

CINCINNATI — A Native American author whose writings have highlighted his indigenous culture is this year’s winner of a lifetime achievement award celebrating literature’s power to foster peace, social justice and global understanding. Dayton Literary Peace Prize officials selected novelist, poet and essayist N. Scott Momaday for the Richard C. Holbrooke Distinguished Achievement Award. It’s named for the late U.S. diplomat who brokered the 1995 Bosnia peace accords reached in Ohio. A Kiowa Indian, Momaday earned the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for fiction with “House Made of Dawn,” about a young man returning to his Kiowa pueblo after serving in the U.S. Army. His 1968 book has been credited with leading a renaissance in Native American literature . Born in 1934, Momaday grew up on reservations in the southwestern United States, where his parents were teachers. He drew from Kiowa history and folk lore for “The Way to Rainy Mountain” in 1969 and wrote about the influence of ancestors and

traditions in his early life in “The Names: A Memoir” in 1976. Sharon Rab, founder and chairwoman of the peace prize foundation, said Momaday’s work shows the “power of ritual, imagination, and storytelling” to produce peace through intercultural understanding and that it honors and safeguards “the storytelling traditions of our nation’s indigenous communities.” Momaday said in a statement that peace is the objective of human evolution, and literature is the measure. “The history of human experience is in many ways a history of dysfunction and conflict, and literature, because it is an accurate record of that history, reflects not only what is peaceful, but what is the universal hope and struggle for peace,” he said. “Literature and peace are at last indivisible. They form an equation that is the definition of art and humanity.” The award carries a $10,000 prize. Previous winners include Studs Terkel, Taylor Branch, John Irving, Gloria Steinem, and Elie Wiesel. This year’s awards gala will be Nov. 3, when Momaday will be joined by the 2019 winners of awards for fiction and nonfiction who will be announced Sept. 17.

Elevated opioid risks found at Native American hospitals By Felicia Fonseca Associated Press

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — U.S. government hospitals put Native American patients at increased risk for opioid abuse and overdoses, failing to follow their own protocols for prescribing and dispensing the drugs, according to a federal audit made public Monday. The report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General does not say whether patients suffered because of the hospitals’ practices. But all five Indian Health Service hospitals that were reviewed had patients who were given opioids in amounts exceeding federal guidelines, the report said. “There are vulnerabilities with this particular population in the opioid prescribing and dispensing practices,” said Carla Lewis, one of

the auditors. The overdose epidemic that has killed more people than any other drug epidemic in U.S. history has hit indigenous communities hard. Native Americans and Alaska Natives had the second-highest rate of opioid overdose out of all U.S. racial and ethnic groups in 2017, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez called the audit’s findings “very concerning” and said the tribe plans to reach out to its congressional members and the Indian Health Service to ensure the recommendations are addressed. New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall, vice chairman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, said the report “is a deeply troubling indication that structural issues at the IHS are potentially worsening the opioid crisis in Indian Country.”

Looking to declaw your cat? Don’t look in New York anymore By David Klepper Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York became the first U.S. state to ban the declawing of cats Monday, joining most of Europe, several Canadian provinces and a growing list of American cities that already prohibit a procedure animal advocates call cruel and unnecessary. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed the New York ban. Supporters of the new law, which took effect immediately, predict it will lead to similar proposals across the country. “This is a real triumph for cats and the people who love them,” said Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal, D-Manhattan, who pushed for years and who yielded to temptation when it came feline-themed puns on Monday. “This has catapulted New York to a leadership position when

it comes to cruelty against felines.” Declawing a cat involves slicing through bone to amputate the first segment of a cat’s toes. The operation was once commonly performed to protect furniture and human skin from feline scratching but has in recent years come under scrutiny by animal welfare advocates, cat owners and many vets. While many vets urged lawmakers to pass the ban, the state’s largest veterinary organization opposed the bill. The New York State Veterinary Medical Society argued that declawing should be allowed as a last resort for felines that won’t stop scratching furniture or humans — or when the cat’s owner has a weakened immune system, putting them at greater risk of infection from a scratch. “Medical decisions should be left to the sound discretion of fully trained, licensed and state

supervised professionals,” the society said in a memo opposing the legislation. Declawing a cat is already illegal in much of Europe and Canada, as well as in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Denver, but no other U.S. state has voted to ban the procedure, which involves amputating a cat’s toes back to the first knuckle. According to The Paw Project, a California-based group that supports bans on declawing, bills to prohibit the procedure are pending in several states, including New Jersey, California and Massachusetts, where lawmakers held a hearing on the measure Monday. Supporters of bans cite estimates that a quarter or more of all domestic cats in the U.S. have had the procedure. “For a cat, declawing is both psychologically and physically

Meet Hurly Hurly is good with other pets. He is more of a laid back kind of dog but he is still young enough that he enjoys playing when he has another dog around. He is about 45 pounds and he is housebroken and is not a runner.

Meet Lovelace This boy takes some time to warm up to strangers. He prefers quiet solitude most of the time. Needs a home that allows him to just chill out and be left alone. He does enjoy being petted but he’s not extremely social.

Under the bill, which easily passed the Democrat-led Senate and Assembly in early June, veterinarians could still perform the procedure for medical reasons, such as infection or injury.
