2 die in single-vehicle rollover ANCHORAGE — Two Nome women have died in a car crash in the western Alaska town. Troopers say 24-yearold Tiffany Habros and 21-year-old Christine Buffas died at the scene. Troopers say they were notified early Tuesday about the single-vehicle rollover. According to troopers, Buffas was driving fast on Kougarok Road with Habros as a passenger when the vehicle left the road. Troopers say Buffas overcorrected the vehicle, causing it to flip several times. The women were not wearing seatbelts. Their remains were being sent to the state medical examiner’s office.

Dems to ‘see where the facts take us’ As Robert Mueller appears Wednesday for televised testimony before two House committees, Democrats hope America tunes in. By Mary Clare Jalonick and Eric Tucker Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Democrats are pretty sure America didn’t read the Mueller report. On Wednesday, they’re hoping the nation will be glued to the TV version. Former Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller’s appearance before two House committees promises to be the TV event of the year in the U.S. House, where lawmakers will question him for roughly five hours about the book-length report he released in April. Democrats hope that by putting Mueller on television and highlighting the parts of the report that they believe describe President Donald Trump’s most egregious behavior, they will be able to ignite new outrage and renew public interest in their investigations. But Republicans will be there, too, defending Trump and turning some of their fire on Mueller’s investigation, which the president condemns

as a “witch hunt.” Trump himself first said he wouldn’t be watching, then he conceded, probably “a little bit.” Though he keeps talking about the probe, many Americans seem to have moved on. That’s why the Democrats hope a daylong presentation, with Mueller repeating out loud some of the findings that might have faded in print, will revive interest. Whether they will be able to accomplish that is unclear. The House will leave town two days after the hearings, possibly blunting any legislative or political momentum. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she will not pursue impeachment, for now, even as an increasing number of Democrats call for at least beginning the process. The nation has heard the special counsel speak only once — for nine minutes at a press conference in May — since his appointment in May 2017. And he will do his best not to generate fireworks on Wednesday. He has said his testimony will stick to what was in his 448-page report,

Planned airport construction may create 1,000 jobs ANCHORAGE — New storage facility construction projects at the Anchorage airport could create more than 1,000 jobs, officials said. Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport plans to build a cold cargo storage building on its east side and anther cargo building on the property’s west side, KTVA-TV reported Monday. Construction could start next year with expected opening dates in 2021, said airport manager Jim Szczesniak. “The Anchorage airport is responsible for one in 10 jobs in the Anchorage area,” Szczesniak said. “This is just to continue to grow the economy here and strengthen the economy here.” The cost of the buildings could reach $370 million, said Jason Gamache, an architect involved with the project. The projection of more than 1,000 jobs includes design, engineering and construction work. “Beyond that there will be employment for the permanent workers for those facilities as well,” Gamache said. The cold cargo building is projected to be 700,000 square-feet, while the west side storage is planned to be 1.5 million square feet. Cargo passing through the airport in 2018 grew by 2.5% and is expected to increase. Some cargo now remains on ramps waiting to be loaded, while

Juneau OKs on-site pot smoking By Ben Hohenstatt Juneau Empire

Consuming marijuana at the stores that sell it will be allowed in Juneau — with a couple of big caveats. The City and Borough of Juneau Assembly approved Monday an ordinance that would allow outdoor smoking at state-approved sellers and indoor consumption of edibles. The decision followed months of debate about whether on-site smoking could be allowed without causing problems for the city’s secondhand smoke laws. “If you don’t like marijuana smoke,

you should be for this ordinance,” Assembly member Wade Bryson said during the meeting. He reiterated points he has made in the past that allowing on-site consumption could potentially curb the number of people illegally, publicly consuming marijuana. Being pro-business and keeping marijuana smoke out of public spaces were among the reasons given by Assembly members Maria Gladziszewski, Carole Triem, Alicia Hughes-Skandijs, Rob Edwardson and Michelle Bonnet Hale for supporting the ordinance, which

passed by a 6-2 vote. Assembly member Mary Becker and Mayor Beth Weldon voted against the ordinance. “I don’t want marijuana used outside or inside,” Becker said. “If I had my way, it’d be nowhere, but I do not have my way.” Prior to the vote on the ordinance, Weldon proposed an amendment that would only allow outdoor consumption of marijuana via vaping in order to cut down on secondhand smoke in the air. That amendment failed. See pot, Page A3

The offices of the MediCenter Medical Group in Kenai were subjected to a search by a joint state and federal investigative team on Thursday, according to a statement from Chief Assistant Attorney General Jack McKenna from the Office of Special Prosecutions. McKenna said that investigators from the State of Alaska’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit executed a search warrant last Thursday related to activities at the MediCenter. The warrant was issued by Anchorage District Court Judge David Wallace, and a companion search warrant was issued by a judge in the state of Washington. McKenna did not comment on the specifics of the search, but he did say that the focus of the investigation is “questioned billing practices” by the MediCenter. Members of the Kenai community, particularly members of the local medical community, who may have information related to this matter, should contact Investigator Christie Loughton at 907-269-6279. The management team at the MediCenter was unavailable for comment.

The High Pets headline this week’s concert in the park By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

For the eighth week of the Levitt AMP Soldotna Music Series, Anchorage rock band The High Pets will be taking the stage at Soldotna Creek Park. Inspired by bands like Queens of the Stone Age and Soundgarden, The High Pets have a self-described gritty pop rock sound that combines intricate melodies with arena-style rock ’n’ roll. Opening for the High Pets will be Kyle Baltus, who is the drummer for another Alaska band, 36 Crazyfists. The music will start at 6 p.m. and the concert is free for everyone thanks to a grant from the Levitt Foundation, an organization that helps small towns bring live music to their communities. In addition to the music, the evening will feature games, crafts and food from local vendors, as well as a beer garden hosted by Kenai River Brewing Company. The concerts are held every Wednesday evening, and the series is set for four more weeks of bringing free music and entertainment to the community.

Concerts are held every Wednesday evening at Soldotna Creek Park.

Mueller From Page A1

Trump complained Tuesday night about Zebley’s presence, calling him a “Never Trumper” and tweeting: “What a disgrace to our system. Never heard of this before. VERY UNFAIR, SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED.” On Monday, the Justice Department sent a letter to Mueller asking him not to stray beyond his report. The letter, which was in response to a request from Mueller for information about limitations or potential privilege issues, gives him a formal directive to point to if he faces questions he does not want to answer. House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a letter to Mueller on Tuesday that the Justice Department letter “represents yet another attempt by the Trump Administration to obstruct the authorized oversight activity and legitimate investigations of the Committee.” He said he expects the Justice letter to have “no bearing” on Mueller’s testimony. Absent any bombshells, Democrats insist they just want Mueller to speak the words he wrote on paper in April. “For many Americans, just learning what’s in the report will be a revelation,” said Schiff, D-Calif. “And what the impact of that will be on the Congress or what the impact of that on the country, I don’t know.” Schiff said Democrats will be combatting Trump’s insistence that the report found “no collusion” and “no obstruction.” To stay focused, aides on the House Judiciary and intelligence committees, which will hold the back-to-back hearings, have worked with members to organize the questioning. Democrats on the Judiciary panel will focus on Mueller’s probe into obstruction of justice, which concluded that the president could not be exonerated. Attorney General William Barr and former

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said on their own, after reviewing Mueller’s report, that the evidence on obstruction was not sufficient to support a criminal charge. The Democrats will point to a handful of episodes reviewed by Mueller, including Trump’s directions to White House Counsel Donald McGahn to have Mueller removed and, once that was made public, orders from Trump to McGahn to deny it happened. Democrats also will focus on meetings Trump had with former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in which the Republican president directed Lewandowski to persuade then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to limit Mueller’s investigation, and tell Sessions he was fired if he wouldn’t meet with him. The Democratic aides, who requested anonymity to discuss the preparations, say they believe those episodes are clear examples of obstruction of justice, and are easy for the public to understand. To prepare, the Judiciary aides held a mock hearing with lawmakers Tuesday afternoon. Democratic members of the intelligence panel, which will question Mueller second, will mostly inquire about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and Russian contacts with the Trump campaign. Mueller said there wasn’t enough evidence to establish a conspiracy between Trump’s campaign and Russia. Republicans, on the other hand, are expected to focus in part on the origins of the Russia investigation, as well as evidence they see of potential bias in the FBI’s handling of the probe. That’s what Trump has been saying repeatedly, in rallies, in tweets and impromptu South Lawn exchanges with reporters. Pelosi has said Democrats will “see where the facts take us,” and then “we’ll see what happens after that.” Instead of impeachment, she has urged her committees to continue to investigate Trump and his

administration. A six-page document circulated by her office on Tuesday details legislation the Democrats will push after the Mueller hearing, including efforts to secure elections from future foreign interference and requirements that campaigns report such interference. Pelosi’s office is also spearheading a social media campaign, starting Tuesday, with lawmakers sending around two dozen quotes that they see as the most damning in Mueller’s report. Democrats will also tweet and post

about what they see as unanswered questions from the document. The Democrats have been frustrated by Trump’s declaration that he will fight all of their subpoenas and decline to cooperate with any of their investigations. They have encountered reluctant witness after reluctant witness, and little new information from those who have talked. The House Judiciary Committee has been preparing a lawsuit to try and compel witnesses to cooperate, but it has yet to be filed.

Triem said there are places outdoors where cigarettes are allowed to be smoked and marijuana should be regulated the same way. During public testimony, both people for and against on-site consumption were critical of the ordinance. Residents such as Kristin Cox and Emily Davis spoke to the harmful impacts of secondhand smoke. Those connected to the marijuana industry such as Jennifer Canfield, co-owner of marijuana retailer Green Elephant; and Ben Wilcox, co-owner of THC Alaska; criticized the ordinance for not allowing on-site smoking, which is allowed under state law. Wilcox said he is a lifelong non-driver, but he has to be subjected to exhaust everyday. “We’re looking for 100 percent safety?” Wilcox asked. “We’re in Alaska. We have crabbing.

to give people a space to do what they’re already going to do while keeping smoke out of public places. Green Elephant may be the only local seller that could make accommodations to allow on-site outdoors smoking after the ordinance goes into effect in 30 days, but Canfield said she does not think that will happen soon. “It’s not going to happen this year,” she said. However, she said other businesses may attempt to take advantage of allowing on-site indoor edible consumption more quickly. Assembly members agreed that allowing outdoor onsite smoking at stateapproved businesses may just be a first step and other states have show it’s possible to prioritize clean air and allow on-site smoking. Gladziszewski said California was early to placing restrictions on smoking cigarettes in restaurants and other public spaces but allows on-site, indoors smoking. “If California can figure it out, Juneau can figure it out, too,” Gladziszewski said.

Dems should debate real solutions for affordable health care


ewer than 10 Democratic presidential candidates may qualify for the September debate at Texas Southern University, which could make it the perfect opportunity to switch the format from a smorgasbord of topics to one that decided key midterm races and could decide the 2020 election — health care. A show of hands during the first two-part debate indicated most of the 20 participants did not support Bernie Sanders’ plan to replace private insurers with a single-payer, government-run program dubbed Medicare for All. But little time was provided for the candidates to discuss alternatives, nor is there much information on most of the candidates’ websites. Time may not be a problem for the Sept. 12-13 debate in Houston, which will require participants to meet more stringent qualification standards. The Democratic National Committee says qualifying candidates must receive 2% or more support in at least four major polls and have at least 130,000 unique donors. An analysis by the poll data website FiveThirtyEight showed only five candidates have reached the qualifying threshold: Sanders, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg. Within striking distance, however, are Beto O’Rourke, Julian Castro, Andrew Yang, Cory Booker, and Amy Klobuchar. Health care is too important a topic for each debater to be given a minute or two to talk about it. More than 20 million Americans have health insurance thanks to the Affordable Care Act, but 44 million still have no health insurance and 38 million have inadequate coverage. Ever since Obamacare was enacted nine years ago, Republicans have tried to kill it. The ACA’s biggest threat now is a lawsuit filed by a number of states that contend the law became null and void two years ago when Congress removed its requirement that people either buy health insurance or pay a tax. It makes no sense that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is spearheading the court fight to invalidate the ACA, which would unnecessarily risk the health of more than 900,000 Texans who have purchased health insurance through Obamacare. The case was heard two weeks ago by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in New Orleans. Its ruling will undoubtedly be appealed to the Supreme Court, which in 2012 and 2015 issued rulings that upheld the ACA. The court is even more conservative now, however, so the case’s outcome is even harder to predict. Paxton claims his litigation “will give President Trump and Congress the opportunity to replace the failed social experiment with a plan that ensures Texans and all Americans will again have greater choice about what health coverage they need and who will be their doctor.” Since neither Congress nor the president have shown any signs of working hard on an Obamacare replacement, the more likely outcome if Paxton’s suit succeeds would be millions of Americans going without health insurance for months or longer until a viable option is found. That was the situation before Democrats passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010. Medicare for All doesn’t appear to be the immediate answer. The infrastructure Sanders envisions will take years to build. Millions of Americans can’t wait that long, which is why the Democratic candidates who didn’t raise their hands in support for Sanders’ idea need to explain their plans, if they have one. Many others are comfortable keeping the private, employer-provided policies in which more than 50 million Americans are enrolled. Sanders, Warren and Bill de Blasio want to end private insurance almost immediately while Buttigieg, Yang, Kirsten Gillibrand and Marianne Williamson said competition from Medicare for All would eventually drive private insurers out of business. Other candidates said private insurance should remain an option, including Biden, who said improving Obamacare would provide the best option. If the ACA survives judicial review, it definitely will need to be upgraded. Voters need to know what upgrades the candidates would make. Would they bring back the tax penalty? Would they restore the subsidies Trump dumped, which had encouraged insurance companies to enroll Obamacare patients? If they know well in advance that health care is going to be the main topic of the Texas Southern debate, the Democratic contenders who make the cut will have plenty of time to prepare for a discussion of their own health care plans instead of raising their hands to respond to someone else’s idea. — Houston Chronicle, July 23

National measles outbreak has spread to Alaska — Please get vaccinated!


n July 16, Alaska became part of the national measles epidemic when measles was diagnosed in an unvaccinated Kenai Peninsula teenager who acquired the illness while travelling in the Lower 48. Most of us today haven’t experienced measles firsthand and some wonder, “What’s the big deal?” Some people may have forgotten how serious measles can be. One of the most contagious diseases in the world, measles can lead to severe complications including brain swelling and death. In 2017, over 100,000 people died from measles globally — most of these people were children under 5 years of age. Prior to the widespread availability of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, 3 to 4 four million people per year were infected with measles in the United States. Of these, nearly 50,000 were hospitalized, 1,000 had brain swelling that sometimes left children deaf or brain damaged, and 500 died annually. In 1978, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) set a goal to eliminate measles. Due to a highly effective vaccination program, in 2000, CDC declared measles eliminated in the United States. Unfortunately, that monumental public health success is now faltering due in large part to misinformation about measles and vaccines, leading some parents to choose not to vaccinate their children. From Jan. 1 to July 18, 2019, 1,148 cases of measles have been confirmed in 30 states across the nation. This is the largest number of measles cases reported in the United States since 1992. Due to poor compliance with CDC’s vaccination recommendations, Alaska’s immunization coverage rates are considerably lower than the level that affords protection for the entire community. “Herd immunity” protects

communities from outbreaks only when the community’s coverage rate exceeds a specified proportion of the population; for measles, immunization rates of at least 95% are required to prevent outbreaks from occurring as long as there are no sizeable social groups within the community with low coverage rates that create pockets of vulnerability. Just like the wildfires we are seeing, a measles outbreak will spread through vulnerable communities and spare those that are better protected. It doesn’t matter who lives in the affected communities; what does matter is whether or not people are vaccinated. Most people feel quite ill if they have measles — fevers can reach as high as 105°F. Complications include diarrhea, ear infections, pneumonia, encephalitis (brain swelling) and a rare degenerative disease that affects the central nervous system called subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) that can appear 7 to 10 years after someone has measles. Measles can also temporarily suppress the immune system in a way similar to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Beyond the immediate health risks, infected individuals should be isolated while ill, which means lost time from work or school and disruption to families. Health care workers may not be allowed to report to work if they are awaiting proof of immunity. The costs of a measles outbreak would ripple through Alaska’s communities in painful ways; that’s why our state’s epidemiologists, public health nurses, health care providers and other community partners are working so hard to help stop the spread of measles now. Prevention is critical for staving off an outbreak and the associated health consequences and costs. The measles virus travels through the air and can linger for up to two

hours after an infected person has left the room; 90% of susceptible people who are exposed to someone with measles will become infected. Those infected will typically start experiencing symptoms within 8-12 days of their exposure, but it can take up to three weeks for symptoms to occur in some people. Infected individuals are contagious from four days before the rash appears until four days after — and should be isolated from other susceptible people during this period. The initial symptoms of measles typically include runny nose, red watery eyes, high fever (>101 °F) and cough, followed by a red, blotchy rash that starts on the head and spreads down the body to the torso, arms and legs. If you think you or your child may be sick it is important to CALL your health care provider before going to the clinic so that the clinic staff can tell you where and when to enter the clinic; this helps prevent exposure to people in the clinic waiting room. While it’s not surprising measles has landed in Alaska, this case represents an important reminder that we all need to pitch in to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our community from this serious disease. Fortunately, there is a very safe and effective way to do just that — get vaccinated! Once you are vaccinated for measles, immunity is lifelong; no boosters are needed to keep you protected.

Analysis: Budget deal is epitaph for bid to control spending

By Andrew Taylor Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Eight years ago, Washington’s power players reluctantly sealed a pact to curtail federal spending and the debt. Now, with help from President Donald Trump, they are writing its epitaph. The budget deal reached this week by Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Republican leaders represents the last gasp of the 2011 Budget Control Act, a complex experiment aimed at forcing lawmakers into tough fiscal decisions that they couldn’t arrive at on their own. The verdict on the law, including from its authors, is stark: it was a colossal failure. “A law that was originally conceived to drive deficit reduction is instead driving two-year by two-year deal making irrespective of deficit concerns,” said Mike Spahn, a former Senate Democratic aide. “Now, for the fourth time over, in every different version of divided government, everyone has decided just to blow right past that particular concern.” The law was itself a retreat from promising but ultimately failed “grand bargain” negotiations between thenSpeaker John Boehner and former President Barack Obama aimed at attacking trillion-dollar deficits. But

it was what Washington could then produce in a capital bitterly divided by a tea party-driven House and a Democratic president seeking to cement re-election. The law had two central elements: a “supercommittee” assigned to find $1 trillion-plus in deficit cuts, and a harsh mechanism called sequestration that would trigger wrenching cuts to both the defense and nondefense sides of the federal budget, as a backstop. But the supercommittee never got close to an agreement. Neither negotiating side ever unveiled anything to draw their counterparts into a “hold hands and jump” moment that was a feature of the politically perilous but successful deficit-cutting efforts of the 1990s. Then the backup failed, too. The idea had been that the threat of sequestration would be so awful that it would compel lawmakers to swallow cuts to popular benefit program or tax increases that they otherwise wouldn’t accept. But the resulting jolt to the Washington ecosystem actually increased pressure for more spending over time. For six years lawmakers wrestled with it, with each successive deal adding more to future deficits — in 2013, 2015, 2018 and now — to stop the spending cuts from taking effect.

“When it came right down to it, sequestration was supposed to be such an awful alternative that we would do responsible things instead,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who served on Obama’s 2010 deficit commission and is a veteran of budget wars dating to the 1980s. “And we didn’t do the responsible things that we needed to do from the budget viewpoint. And we’re kind of stuck with the outcome.” One of the most important dynamics that emerged from the 2011 law was that it empowered then-Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — and she made the most of it, leveraging her support for must-do debt and spending measures to gain a seat at the table to demand spending increases for domestic appropriations. But pressure against the cuts also came from the Republican side of the aisle, where there was little support for reductions in defense spending. The first deal to replace sequestration came in 2013, after the sequestration cuts started to take effect. That jolted the powerful defense lobby, ultimately resulting in a follow-up pact by then-Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., to blunt the impact of the sequester cuts, paid for — mostly, sort of — by cuts elsewhere in the budget.

Antitrust probe of Big Tech launched Associated Press

HEALTH NOTIFICATION! specific companies in its announcement. The focus of the investigation closely mirrors a bipartisan probe of Big Tech undertaken by the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust. Its chairman, Rep. David Cicilline, a Rhode Island Democrat, has sharply criticized the conduct of Silicon Valley giants and said legislative or regulatory changes may be needed. He has called breaking up the companies a last resort. Major tech companies already facing that congressional scrutiny declined to comment on the Justice Department’s probe. Amazon had no comment. Facebook also did not have an immediate comment. Google directed requests for comments to the testimony its director of economic policy, Adam Cohen, made to the House Judiciary Committee last week. Cohen reiterated the company’s benefits to consumers.

Apple referred to comments from CEO Tim Cook, who told CBS last month he doesn’t think “anybody reasonable” would call Apple a monopoly. Shares of Facebook, Amazon and Apple were down slightly in after-hours trading. One antitrust expert believes the DOJ investigation may prompt regulators to interpret U.S. competition law in new ways. University of Pennsylvania law professor Herbert Hovenkamp said the companies may have been their abusing market power by collectively buying hundreds of startups in recent years to devour their technology and prevent them from growing into formidable rivals. Traditionally, antitrust regulators have only sought to block acquisitions involving large companies in adjacent markets. But Hovenkamp says U.S. antitrust law is broad enough

for regulators to consider the potential damage wrought by relatively small deals, too. Earlier, the Washington Post reported that the Federal Trade Commission will allege that Facebook misled users about its privacy practices as part of an expected settlement of its 2018 Cambridge Analytica scandal. The federal business watchdog will reportedly find that Facebook deceived users about how it handled phone numbers it asked for as part of a security feature and provided insufficient information about how to turn off a facial recognition tool for photos. Advertisers were reportedly able to target users who provided their phone number as part of a two-factor authentication security feature. The FTC didn’t respond immediately to a request for comment. Facebook had no comment.

Are You Hard of Hearing?

The U.S. Department of Justice opened a sweeping antitrust investigation of big technology companies and whether their online platforms have hurt competition, suppressed innovation or otherwise harmed consumers. It comes as a growing number of lawmakers have called for stricter regulation or even breaking up of the big tech companies, which have come under intense scrutiny following a series of scandals that compromised users’ privacy.

A vinaigrette packed with fresh herbs makes for some fine fillets

By America’S Test Kitchen Associated Press

It’s no wonder salmon is so popular: Its flesh is rich-tasting thanks to high levels of hearthealthy omega-3 fatty acids. A great way to ensure moist, tender salmon is to poach it. And a vinaigrette packed with fresh herbs offers surprising nutritional value. Poaching the salmon in just enough liquid to come half an inch up its sides meant we didn’t need much to boost the flavour of the liquid. However, the portion of the salmon that wasn’t submerged needed to be steamed to cook through properly, and the low poaching cooking temperature didn’t create enough steam. Cutting the water with some wine lowered the boiling point the alcohol helped to produce more vapour even at the lower temperature. To keep the bottoms of the fillets from overcooking, we placed them on top of lemon slices. After poaching, we reduced the poaching liquid and added some olive oil and capers for an easy vinaigrette-style sauce. If using wild salmon, which contains less fat than farmed salmon, cook the

fillets until they register 120 F (for medium-rare).

POACHED SALMON WITH HERB AND CAPER VINAIGRETTE Servings: 4 Start to finish: 30 minutes 1 lemon, sliced into 1/4 inchthick rounds, plus lemon wedges for serving 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, stems reserved 2 tablespoons minced fresh tarragon, stems reserved 2 shallots, minced 1/2 cup dry white wine 1/2 cup water 1 (1 1/2 pound) skinless salmon fillet, 1 inch thick Salt and pepper 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and minced 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil Arrange lemon slices in single layer over bottom of 12-inch skillet. Scatter parsley stems, tarragon stems, and half of shallots over lemon slices then add wine and water. Cut salmon crosswise into 4 fillets. Pat dry with paper towels and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Lay salmon fillets, skinned-side down, on top of lemons and herb sprigs. Set pan over high heat

This delicious pasta and shrimp dish will take you to Venice By America’S Test Kitchen Associated Press

Seafood has always been central to Venetian cuisine. The earliest Venetians were skilled fisherman and their diet relied heavily on the bounty found in the city’s lagoon ecosystem. And while the Veneto may not be as famous for pasta dishes as some other regions, spaghettini con le schie is a Venetian celebration of the uniquely delicious small shrimp found in their waters. While shrimp of this size found stateside are often unappealing (lacking in flavour and quality), we loved the sweet, briny flavours and ease of this dish and decided to develop a simple shrimp pasta that would taste just as good in our kitchens. We began by halving large shrimp, which have reliably good flavour. We then reinforced the shrimp presence by first cooking the shrimp shells in oil and wine. Shrimp shells are rich in glutamates, which add meaty depth, as well as volatile fatty acids, which generate fresh, delicate flavours when cooked. The result was a deeply flavoured shrimp sauce. Some garlic, butter, lemon zest, and fresh parsley were all we needed to finish this flavourful weeknight dish.

SPAGHETTINI WITH SHRIMP Servings: 6-8 Start to finish: 30 minutes 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 pounds large shrimp (26 to 30 per pound), peeled, deveined, and halved crosswise, shells reserved 1 cup dry white wine 5 garlic cloves, minced Salt and pepper 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest, plus lemon wedges for serving 1 pound spaghettini or thin spaghetti Heat 1/4 cup oil in 12-inch skillet over high heat until shimmering. Add shrimp shells and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to turn spotty brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Off heat, carefully add wine. Once bubbling subsides, return skillet

On picking berries, canning fish and making gooseberry and rhubarb pies


his is the time of year I start to look for canning jars and lids and get out my big glass kettle to make jellies and jams. We have loads of currents just getting ripe. The raspberries will get to the tummy, not the jam this year. They are my breakfast dessert right off the plant. We had beautiful strawberries, but my friendly momma moose and her twin babies ate them — green ones, ripe ones, with the leaves. There will be a limited amount of strawberries to just to be mixed in with currents and watermelon berries or rhubarb jam. Susan said when she was little, green watermelon berries were her favorite as they tasted like cucumbers. When they turn red I pick them to add color to jams and jellies. I sometimes pull the rhubarb and dice it, put it in two cup containers and freeze for a latter time when I want to make rhubarb cake, cupcakes, muffins and a pie or two. Strawberries in with the rhubarb give the pie a wonderful taste. And then there is mixed jelly. After I have a few of each berry left, I just cook them down a little and add enough apple juice to make it really pretty. You can mix other juice with one part apple juice to the described amount on the pectin box. Blue berries are ripe, probably my favorite to give out as Christmas presents. I never use just plan blueberry juice. I add one part apple juice. Leave out one cup of regular juice, and add one cup of apple juice. This is my mom’s way of making tons of jelly. I sometimes use Pomona’s Universal Pectin, as it is low in methoxyl-type pectin extract from citrus peel. Its jelling power is activated by calcium, not sugar content. It’s hard to find. I had to send for it. Mostly I use the Sure Jell-type pectin. If you do have a batch of jelly that did not jell, just follow directions on this pectin box and you will have wonderful jelly! Our friend Mr. Ed gave me boxes of Pomona’s. I thank him for his knowledge of berries and jellies and for picking lots of berries and giving them to us. Susan likes my cranberry catsup (ketchup?), so with the abundance of cranberries this year we will have this yummy catsup this winter. Canning salmon is an everyyear happening at our house. I love canned salmon in the winter. The pint jar is all mine because Bob is not very fond of it. If I make potato soup, I add two big tablespoons full of canned salmon to mine. I don’t dare do that to Bob’s! Many years ago in the ‘70s, in my other life, for three years in a row I

Pioneer potluck ‘Grannie’ Annie Berg canned hooligan. They made great sardines and were a real good treat in the winter time. It was the first year I used a canner by myself and not in the tutelage of Leatha or JoAnne. The canner was filled with jars of hooligan and I brought it up to temperature, watching closely. All of a sudden there was a loud pop and hiss and the seal blew out of the top of the canner. I screamed, crawled on my knees to turned off the burner and threw open the door of our trailer house, screaming at the top of my lungs, “the canner blew UP!” at least 15 times!! I was running down the middle of the road of the trailer court at Unocal, called Mallard Park, to get my friend Jo Anne. My new husband had just caught a bunch of hooligan and helped clean them, helped me put then in the jars and went off to open the gas station that we owned in North Kenai, now Nikiski. Someone, probably Jo Anne, called him and she yelled “Ann’s canner blew up!” He was just pulling into the gas station and opened up the door and heard the phone ring. He raced back out the door, into his car and was back down at the trailer, which was about 5 miles away in 3 minutes — (he said!!) I was at Jo Anne’s and we decided to go back down and look at the awful mess, just as my husband drove up. He flew up the stairs, opened up the door and the canner was sitting on the stove in one piece! OH MY goodness, was he mad! I said, still crying and shaking “SOMETHING blew out of the top!” Come to find out the soft plug was not set right and it blew out. After looking at me and my total hysteria, he put his arm around me and told me that is what it is suppose to do! He found the plug, put it back in the hole and screwed the lid back on and watched for it to build pressure and then left AGAIN! I watched that canner with my heart in my throat from the distance of the living room. I can’t tell you how relieved I was when the 60 minutes was up!! Richard was not and never was afraid of pressure. He was a pressure vessel welder and then became

the first pressure vessel inspector in the state of Alaska. Yes, it was in 1970 and all the buildings in the area were oil-based business buildings. Lots of welding shops cropped up too. He NEVER understood why I was so darned afraid of a little, itty bitty pressure canner!! (P.S., I still am!) I did can salmon and more hooligan the next year, then we moved to Anchorage and that is a way different story in my life in Alaska. Now I have to go dice rhubarb and make a Rhubarb Custard Pie for supper. If I have a few strawberries I will put those in the pie also.

HIGH BUSH CRANBERRY CATSUP This is from a wonderful book, “Pioneers of Alaska,” by the Pioneer Auxiliary No. 4. First printing was 1988, if you happened to see one you better buy it — it is full of great Alaskan recipes! 1 1/2 pounds sweet, white onions 5 pounds cranberries — In place of high bush cranberries, I have used domestic cranberries in the bag. You will need 5 bags. 2 1/2 cups water 2 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar 6 cups sugar 1 tablespoon salt 1 ½ tablespoons allspice 2 tablespoons dried red pepper flakes 1 tablespoon ground cloves 1 tablespoon cinnamon 1 1/2 tablespoons celery seed 1 teaspoon black pepper Cook together onions and cranberries in water until tender. Put through a food mill. Place in large kettle, DO NOT USE ALUMINUM — stainless or glass or enamel will do. Cook until thick, stirring often. Pour into sterilized pint jars and seal. Process 20 minutes in boiling water bath. Great Christmas presents!

SOUR CREAM GOOSEBERRY PIE My friend Virginia Walters asked me for a Gooseberry pie recipe, in my treasure of mounds and boxes of recipes I also came across this. 1 1/4 cups fresh gooseberries 1 cup white sugar 2 tablespoons flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 double pastry pie crust. I buy mine! Place bottom crust in a 9-inch pie pan In medium bowl, stir in the gooseberries and sugar. Set aside for 15 to 20 minutes. In small bowl stir together flour and salt, set aside.

How to grill tuna with a smoky char, tender interior By America’S Test Kitchen Associated Press

Perfectly grilled tuna steaks should combine a hot, smoky, charred exterior with a cool, rare centre. For a home cook, this ideal can be an elusive goal. For grilled tuna steaks with an intense smoky char and a tender interior, we started with a hot grill. We moistened the tuna steaks’ flesh with a vinaigrette to promote browning and allow the oil to penetrate the meat of the tuna steaks. And instead of using sugar in our vinaigrette, we used honey. Both promote browning, but honey does it faster, which was important with the quick cooking times for tuna on the grill. It’s easy to add complementary flavours to this dish by mixing up the seasoning in the vinaigrette.

GRILLED TUNA STEAKS WITH VINAIGRETTE Servings: 6 Start to finish: 25 minutes We prefer our tuna served rare or medium-rare. If you like your tuna cooked medium, observe the timing for medium-rare, then tent the steaks with foil for 5 minutes before serving. 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or rosemary 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 2 teaspoons honey Salt and pepper 3/4 cup olive oil 6 (8-ounce) tuna steaks, 1 inch

thick For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent completely. Light large chimney starter filled with charcoal briquettes (6 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour evenly over half of grill. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent completely. Heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. For a gas grill: Turn all burners to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, thyme, mustard, honey, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pinch pepper together in large bowl. Whisking constantly, slowly drizzle oil into vinegar mixture until lightly thickened and emulsified. Measure out 3/4 cup vinaigrette and set aside for cooking tuna. Reserve remaining vinaigrette for serving. Clean cooking grate, then repeatedly brush grate with well-oiled paper towels until grate is black and glossy, 5 to 10 times. Pat tuna dry with paper towels. Generously brush both sides of tuna with vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper. Place tuna on grill (on hotter side if using charcoal) and cook (covered if using gas) until grill marks form and bottom surface is opaque, 1 to 3 minutes. Flip tuna and cook until opaque at perimeter and translucent red at centre when checked with tip of paring knife and registers 110 F (for rare), about 1 1/2 minutes, or until opaque at perimeter and reddish pink at centre when checked with tip of paring knife and registers 125 F (for medium-rare), about 3 minutes. Serve, passing reserved vinaigrette.

Grilled Tuna Steaks with Vinaigrette.

Yes, you can have a Baja-style fish taco with just veggies By America’S Test Kitchen Associated Press

A true Baja California experience requires sunny, breezy patios and a plate of tacos. We aimed to re-create the feel of a Baja-style fish taco in our home kitchen, instead bringing veggies to the forefront. We thought that battered cauliflower bites, drizzled with a cool and creamy vegan sauce, were the perfect standin for the fish. We wanted to avoid the mess of deep-frying, so we cut the cauliflower into large florets and roasted them. To boost their flavour, we dunked the pieces in canned coconut milk seasoned with garlic and spices and then rolled them in a mixture of panko bread crumbs and shredded coconut. Not only did this add richness and the flavours of a cabana-shaded getaway, but it also mimicked the crisp exterior texture of

batter-fried fish. A bed of crunchy slaw with juicy mango and spicy jalapeno provided the perfect balance of sweetness and heat. By using equal parts vegan mayonnaise and dairyfree sour cream, plus cilantro and a bit of lime zest, we were able to whip up a vegan cream to top it all off. Just add cerveza and sunshine. For a spicier slaw, mince and add the jalapeno ribs and seeds. Serve with lime wedges.

Today in History Today is Wednesday, July 24, the 205th day of 2019. There are 160 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 24, 1969, the Apollo 11 astronauts -- two of whom had been the first men to set foot on the moon -- splashed down safely in the Pacific. On this date: In 1858, Republican senatorial candidate Abraham Lincoln formally challenged Democrat Stephen A. Douglas to a series of political debates; the result was seven face-to-face encounters. In 1862, Martin Van Buren, the eighth president of the United States, and the first to have been born a U.S. citizen, died at age 79 in Kinderhook, New York, the town where he was born in 1782. In 1866, Tennessee became the first state to be readmitted to the Union after the Civil War. In 1915, the SS Eastland, a passenger ship carrying more than 2,500 people, rolled onto its side while docked at the Clark Street Bridge on the Chicago River; an estimated 844 people died in the disaster. In 1937, the state of Alabama dropped charges against four of the nine young black men accused of raping two white women in the “Scottsboro Case.” In 1959, during a visit to Moscow, Vice President Richard Nixon engaged in his famous “Kitchen Debate” with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. In 1974, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled that President Richard Nixon had to turn over subpoenaed White House tape recordings to the Watergate special prosecutor. In 1975, an Apollo spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific, completing a mission which included the first-ever docking with a Soyuz capsule from the Soviet Union. In 1998, a gunman burst into the U.S. Capitol, killing two police officers before being shot and captured. (The shooter, Russell Eugene Weston Jr., is being held in a federal mental facility.) In 2002, nine coal miners became trapped in a flooded tunnel of the Quecreek (KYOO’-kreek) Mine in western Pennsylvania; the story ended happily 77 hours later with the rescue of all nine. In 2005, Lance Armstrong won his seventh consecutive Tour de France. (Those wins were stripped away after Armstrong’s 2013 confession to using steroids and other banned performance-enhancing drugs and methods.) In 2017, in a speech to a national Boy Scout gathering in West Virginia, President Donald Trump railed against his enemies and promoted his political agenda, bringing an angry reaction from some parents and former Scouts from both parties. Ten years ago: Trying to tamp down a national uproar over race, President Barack Obama acknowledged using unfortunate words in declaring that Cambridge, Massachusetts, police had “acted stupidly” in arresting black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr., adding he’d invited the Harvard professor and Sgt. James Crowley, the arresting officer, for “a beer here in the White House.” Five years ago: Air Algérie Flight 5017, an MD-83 carrying 116 people, crashed in northern Mali, killing all on board; it was the third major international aviation disaster in a week. A psychiatrist’s patient opened fire at a medical complex in Media, Pennsylvania, killing his caseworker and grazing his psychiatrist before the doctor pulled out his own weapon and fired back, wounding the patient. Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice received a two-game suspension from the NFL following his offseason arrest for domestic violence after an altercation with then-fiancée (later wife) Janay Palmer in Atlantic City, New Jersey. One year ago: The Trump administration said it would provide $12 billion in emergency relief to farmers hurt by trade disputes with China and other countries. Brian Kemp, a self-described “politically incorrect conservative” carrying the endorsement of President Donald Trump, won Georgia’s GOP gubernatorial runoff; he would go on to defeat Democrat Stacey Abrams in the general election. A federal judge in New York ordered the release of an Ecuadorean immigrant, Pablo Villavicencio, who’d been held for deportation after delivering pizza to a U.S. Army installation in Brooklyn; the immigrant had applied to stay in the country after marrying a U.S. citizen with whom he had two young girls. Ivanka Trump announced the shutdown of her fashion line, which had been targeted by boycotts and prompted concerns about conflicts of interest. Today’s Birthdays: Actor John Aniston is 86.

Boxer dies days Thomas crashes again in Tour after brain injury MOSCOW (AP) — Boxer Maxim Dadashev died Tuesday, four days after suffering a brain injury in a fight in Maryland. He was 28. The Russian Boxing Federation said Dadashev suffered a brain swelling in Friday’s light-welterweight fight with Subriel Matias at the Theater at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland. He underwent surgery but his heart stopped Tuesday, the federation said. Dadashev was hospitalized at UM Prince George’s Hospital Center shortly after the fight, which was stopped by his corner following the 11th round after Dadashev took numerous shots to the head. Footage from the fight

shows Dadashev shaking his head in his corner as his trainer, Buddy McGirt, pleads with him to stop the fight, telling him: “You’re getting hit too much, Max. Please, Max, please let me do this.” Shortly after, the referee stopped the bout at McGirt’s request. The Russian Boxing Federation’s secretary general, Umar Kremlev, said the federation would investigate whether anyone was at fault for Dadashev’s death. “We need to know the truth about what happened,” Kremlev wrote in an email to The Associated Press. “I believe that some human factors intervened, that there was some kind of violation.”

Homer’s Cook takes 1st at wrestling nats By Megan Pacer Homer News

McKenzie Cook, a wrestler at Homer High School, took first place in her weight class last week at the 2019 U.S. Marine Corps Junior and 16U Nationals held at North Dakota State in Fargo, North Dakota. She traveled to the tournament along with fellow Mariners wrestler Wayne Newman, who graduated from Homer this spring. The following is a recap of the event from Chris Perk, athletic director at Homer: Division II state champion Wayne Newman attended his second juniors national tourney hosted at the Fargodome in North Dakota. Each year, Fargo is the host of the national tournament for freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling. Over 100 boys, including Newman, populated the 138-pound weight class. Newman dropped his first contest to Cade Balestini from Pennsylvania 13-3. He then went on to win three straight matches, beating opponents from Washington and Missouri 10-0. Newman used a powerful gut wrench in both of those matches. In his third victory, he trailed Sam Kellem from Iowa 11-10 before executing many roll throughs to earn a 22-11 victory. Newman’s last match was against Joe Foxen from New York, and was close in the early periods as both wrestlers exchanged leg attacks for takedowns. In the end, Foxen earned a 15-5 victory. Newman was eliminated in the top 32 of his bracket. He’s now headed to Oregon State University in Corvallis to compete for the Beavers as a college athlete. Newman also wrestled in the Greco Roman style tournament, winning

four matches and avenging his loss to Foxen. Newman placed in the top 24. Cook, a four-time Alaska statewide high school champion and multipletime winner of All-American honors, added another one to her trophy case over the weekend by taking first place in her weight class at the national competition. She competed in the junior girls 144-pound weight class against 37 other girls. She was ranked No. 4 in the bracket and earned technical falls (1o-point spread) or touch falls in her first three matches. Using a solid two-on-one series for most of the tourney, Cook was able to shut down many of her opponents’ scoring opportunities. She pinned Krista Warren, a state champion from Washington, in 2 minutes, 40 seconds. Cook’s semifinal match was against Ivy Kraught, also from Washington, who placed third during the high school season. Cook scored a takedown and three push-outs to earn a solid 5-1 victory, putting her in the championship match against Jerzie Estrada from Colorado. Estrada had previously defeated Cook in April at the Western Regional competition in Las Vegas, 14-2. Cook wrestled very aggressively, hitting a fireman’s carry 20 seconds into the match. She put Estrada on her back and after Estrada fought her off, Cook hit a solid pancake head lock and had Estrada in danger for another 30 seconds to build a 6-0 lead. In the second period, Estrada defended a shot of Cook’s to pick up a few points, but the lead was too much as Cook earned the national title with an 8-7 victory over the No. 2 ranked female competitor at 152 pounds.

NIMES, France (AP) — Crashing is becoming a bad habit for defending Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas. After hitting the ground twice over the past two weeks, the Welshman fell off his bike one more time on Tuesday as a heat wave engulfed the race ahead of grueling days in the Alps when the Tour will reach its climax. Once again, Thomas was lucky enough to escape with

bruises and scratches, but the timing of his crash in the rural hinterland of the antique Roman city of Nimes was unfortunate. Although Thomas quickly got back on his bike and did not lose time, crashes always have a lingering effect on riders’ bodies. It’s generally after 48 hours that the soreness reaches its peak, and that’s when he will be fighting in high altitude with rivals trying to take him off his perch.

Lagging 1 minute, 35 seconds behind race leader Julian Alaphilippe with the race now going into its five last stages, Thomas was caught off guard under a scorching sun about 40 kilometers into the stage won by Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan. The peloton was not riding at full speed, but Thomas was surprised. “I just had one hand on the bars, and the gears jumped

and jammed and I got thrown off my bike on a corner,” he said. “I knew the race wasn’t on so I just got back into the group. It’s just frustrating. It was such a freak thing.” Danish rider Jakob Fuglsang, who stood ninth overall, was not as lucky and was forced to abandon the Tour with a left hand injury after falling late in the stage as the peloton pedaled past the picturesque town of Uzes.

Red Sox move into 2nd in East ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Christian Vázquez hit a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning, Marcus Walden bailed Boston out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth and the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 on Tuesday night to move into second place in the AL East for the first time since the second day of the season.

PITTSBURGH — Paul Goldschmidt homered for the second straight night, José Martínez added his 10th home run and Dakota Hudson rebounded from a shaky start to lead St. Louis past Pittsburgh.

YANKEES 14, TWINS 12 MINNEAPOLIS — Aaron Hicks made a game-saving catch in center field for the final out in the 10th inning, Didi Gregorius had five hits and seven RBIs, and New York beat Minnesota in a game that featured five lead changes or ties in the final three innings.

Dear Abby the one she went to for How can I forgive and and companionJeanne Phillips advice forget this? ship, I feel guilty for — WOUNDED IN UTAH “abandoning” her and often wonder DEAR WOUNDED: How did you if she’s OK. We are both healthy and happen upon this news? Did your self-sufficient. I love her because boyfriend tell you? Unless you are she’s my sister, but I can truly say my absolutely certain it’s true, do nothlife is easier and less complicated ing. If you ARE certain, get rid of this without her. The thought of contactpoor excuse for a “boyfriend.” And ing her is too much to bear.

What without your needy sibling, and that if it’s your sister? My sister and I are of you have no desire to contact her.

OK. So what exactly is your question? Are you waiting for me to “order” you to call her and apologize? The price for that will be shouldering again the burden of her neediness. If you’re worried about how she’s doing, ask someone who is in touch with her. But hold a good thought. If you have heard nothing, she’s probably fine. Bad news has a way of traveling fast. DEAR ABBY: When we got married, I thought even though he told “everyone” he did it because he had to, that he truly did love me. But as the years have passed, I have realized that maybe he was telling the truth and he did marry me for that reason rather than for love. I feel unloved most of the time. Lately, I have been thinking maybe it’s time to just move on. What’s your advice? — FEELING TORN DEAR FEELING TORN: Rather than dwell on something your husband said in the past, raise the subject again. And when you do, tell him you are doing it because you feel

Crossword | Eugene Sheffer

unloved most of the time. If he tells you he meant it then and still feels that way, my advice is to ask yourself if this is the kind of marriage you want for the rest of your life. Some women are so afraid of the unknown that they would stay in this kind of marriage, regardless of the pain. Because I assume you have a child, you and your husband need to figure out if you can improve your relationship. If not, then it may be time to move on. 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 or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.For everything you need to know about wedding planning, order “How to Have a Lovely Wedding.” Send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $8 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Wedding Booklet, P.O.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars This year, you have the ability to read between the lines and really understand where the other party comes from. If single, you will tend to cruise the single scene but will settle down when someone of interest surfaces. Your domestic life becomes increasingly important. If attached, the two of you often find yourselves mired in a problem yet seem to work through the issue. Your caring and willingness to make your union work make all the difference. TAURUS often serves as an anchor in your life. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

HHHHH You are personalityplus all day long. You interact well with friends and groups. Nevertheless, some statement made could cause you to pause and think. Try not to internalize or obsess over it. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your emotional candor emerges more often than not. You probably recognize that some people cannot deal with this honesty. Someone’s attitude could reflect his or her discomfort more than usual. Tonight: Together with friends, midweek break.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

HHHH Do not take the present good luck run as never-ending. Do be careful handling finances. The problem might not be you but those with whom you have financial interactions. Double-check amounts on bills. Count change. Tonight: Evaluate a purchase.

HHHHH You can deal with another person’s dissatisfaction better than usual. Know that the base of this schism might be a misunderstanding and the other party’s insecurities. You might want to approach this issue differently this time. Tonight: Head home early.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

HHHH You might have been noticing your friends’ more upbeat attitudes and felt ever so slightly envious. Come late in the day, you will

HHHH You can be very successful in dealing with financial matters, but if another party decides to disagree, you cannot get past an issue as easily. You might be deal-

ing with another person’s need for power. Tonight: Detach and listen to understand what is going on.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Defer to others and let them seize the stage. You cannot help but enjoy others’ perspectives, especially if you are secure. You normally agree; however, a rift might have to do with a need to be heard. Tonight: Munchies for two.

Dear Heloise: Just a brief hint: If you keep VEGGIES IN A PLASTIC BAG, be sure to puncture the bag with tiny holes first before placing it in the refrigerator. Otherwise, the vegetables will get soggy. — Jennifer M., Gulfport, Miss.

SHRIMP DIJON Dear Heloise: My husband loves your Shrimp Dijon recipe. Could you reprint it? — Kelly W., Midland, Texas Kelly, I’d be happy to reprint this delicious recipe.

Boris Johnson’s path to power pays off By Jill Lawless Associated Press

LONDON — Boris Johnson aspires to be a modern-day Winston Churchill. Critics fear he’s a British Donald Trump. Johnson won the contest to lead the governing Conservative Party on Tuesday, and is set to become Britain’s prime minister on Wednesday. Like revered World War II leader Churchill, Johnson aims to turn a national crisis — in this case Brexit — into a triumph. Like Trump, he gained his country’s top political office by deploying celebrity, clowning, provocation and a loose relationship with the truth. “He’s a different kind of a guy, but they say I’m a different kind of a guy, too,” Trump said approvingly last week. “We get along well.” Maintaining strong relations with the volatile Trump will be one of the new leader’s major challenges. So will negotiating Britain’s stalled exit from the European Union, the conundrum that brought down predecessor Theresa May. It’s hard to say whether he will rise to the occasion or fail dismally. Blond, buoyant and

buffoonish, the 55-year-old Johnson may be one of Britain’s most famous politicians, but in many ways he is a mystery. His beliefs? Johnson is now a strong believer of Brexit, but he famously agonized over the decision, writing two newspaper columns — one in favor of quitting the EU , one against — before throwing himself behind the “leave” campaign in Britain’s 2016 referendum over whether it should remain in the bloc. His plan for Brexit? Johnson says he will lead Britain out of the EU on the scheduled date of Oct. 31, with or without a divorce deal. He says Britain should prepare intensely for leaving without

an agreement, but insists the chances of it happening are “a million-to-one against.” Then again, he also once said he had as much chance of becoming Britain’s prime minister as of finding Elvis on Mars. Johnson statements are best taken with a grain of salt, it seems. Historian Max Hastings, Johnson’s former boss at the Daily Telegraph newspaper, has called him “a man of remarkable gifts, flawed by an absence of conscience, principle or scruple.” Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson was born in New York in 1964, the eldest child of a close-knit, extroverted and fiercely competitive

upper middle-class British family. His forebears include Turkish journalist and government minister Ali Kemal, one of Johnson’s great-grandfathers. His sister Rachel has said Johnson’s childhood ambition was to be “world king.” Johnson attended elite boarding school Eton College, where he began to use his middle name, Boris — his family called him Al — and cultivated the still-familiar image of a quick-witted, slightly shambolic entertainer able to succeed without visibly trying very hard. At Oxford University, he was president of the Oxford Union debating society, and a member of the Bullingdon Club, a raucous drinking-anddining society notorious for drunken vandalism. After university, Johnson became a journalist. He survived being fired from The Times newspaper for making up a quote to become Brussels correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. He specialized in exaggerated yarns about the EU’s dastardly plans to truss Britain in red tape. The Brussels officials who now have to deal with Prime Minister Johnson have not forgotten his role in demonizing the EU.

Opposition rallies as Venezuela blackout eases Associated Press CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela’s opposition Tuesday sought to harness anger over a massive blackout that deepened hardship nationwide, but turnout at a Caracas demonstration was relatively modest as many Venezuelans despair of an imminent solution to their plight. Lights came back on in parts of the capital and other areas of Venezuela overnight following a nearly nine-hour outage that the government blamed on an “electromagnetic attack” against the power grid, without providing any evidence.

Government opponents say years of mismanagement and corruption were to blame. Electricity supply remained unstable in many regions. The blackout knocked out communications and the Caracas metro on Monday, forcing commuters to walk home or hustle for a spot on packed buses. The metro remained out of operation Tuesday. The scenes in the capital were familiar, even though Caracas has been mostly spared the debilitating power cuts that persisted in other parts of the country after nationwide outages in

March. The latest blackout didn’t make much difference to people with scarce power in Maracaibo, Venezuela’s second-largest city. Maritza Arámbula, a Maracaibo resident, said she was tired of a government that makes “excuses” and an opposition continually seeking support from Venezuela’s exhausted citizens. “We need solutions, not promises,” Arámbula said. “Not having light makes me sick.” In Caracas, the oppositionled congress held a session in a main square to try to keep pressure on the government of President Nicolás Maduro,

who has defied U.S.-led efforts to oust him. Opposition leader Juan Guaidó appeared in front of bunting in the colors of the Venezuelan flag — red, blue and yellow — and said, as he often has in the past, that the government he calls a “dictatorship” is crumbling.

Afghans seek clarity on Trump’s talk of wiping country out KABUL, Afghanistan — The Afghan government asked for clarification on Tuesday after President Donald Trump said he could win the 18-year war in 10 days but that “Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.” Trump made the remarks Monday while meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, whose help he seeks in negotiating a peace deal with the Taliban that would also see U.S. forces withdraw from Afghanistan. “I could win that war in a week. I just don’t want to kill 10 million people,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth. It would be gone. It would be over, literally, in 10 days.” “I don’t want to go that route,” Trump added. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s office issued a statement Tuesday asking for clarification, saying Afghanistan will never “allow any foreign power to determine its fate.” The statement said cooperation and partnership with the U.S. is based on common interests and mutual respect. The Taliban issued a statement in which they welcomed Trump’s remarks that the U.S. should not play the role of a police officer in Afghanistan. But they said his claim that he could wipe out the country is “irresponsible and we condemn it in the strongest terms.” The Taliban said the dream of winning a military victory in Afghanistan was “taken to the grave” by previous empires, such as the Mongols, the British and the Soviet Union. “On the contrary, their Empires were wiped off the face of this earth but the Afghan nation proudly endured and will continue to endure, live and remain proud, Allah willing.”

France seeks European surveillance to secure Gulf maritime traffic PARIS — France says it’s working with its European partners on an observation mission to ensure maritime security in the Persian Gulf, where tensions have climbed with Iran’s seizure last week of a U.K.-flagged oil tanker. Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian made no mention of a Europe-led “maritime protection mission” announced a day earlier by his British counterpart, Jeremy Hunt, offering instead what seems to be a softer version. France is working “at this moment on a European initiative” with Britain and Germany, he told lawmakers, without elaborating. “This vision is the opposite of the American initiative, which is … maximum pressure” against Iran. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Agnes Von der Muhll said at briefing that the initiative involves “appropriate means of surveillance” aimed at “increased understanding of the situation at sea” to facilitate traffic in a waterway that is critical to the global economy. — Associated Press
