House to meet on Monday for crucial vote House and state hold their breath for crucial vote By Peter Segall Juneau Empire

Having voted through the three bills to restore funding to the government and allocate an Alaska Permanent Fund dividend, the House of Representatives is recessed until Monday,

when a crucial, potentially final, vote will take place. House Speaker Bryce Edgmon’s office sent out a press release Thursday evening saying that the House would vote to rescind its previous action on the capital budget bill. The House was one vote shy of passing it on July 22, but the speaker’s office said in a press release that they were confident that a 30th vote would be obtained before the

end of the month, either from a legislator who was not present or from someone who had previously voted against the bill. Friday morning the House finished its work on HB 2003, the bill which would allocate $1,600 for a PFD. When the House moved to adjourn until Monday, Rep. Tammie Wilson, R-North Pole, raised an objection. “People are tired of us wast-

Woman dies trying to reach famed bus from ‘Into the Wild’ FAIRBANKS — A newlywed woman from Belarus who was swept away by a river in Alaska was trying to reach an abandoned bus made famous by the book and film “Into the Wild.” Veramika Maikamava, 24, and her husband, Piotr Markielau, also 24, on Thursday were heading for the bus where hiker Christopher McCandless met his death in 1992, The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported. The bus has been the source of multiple rescues since it was made famous, first by Jon Krakauer’s book published in 1996 and then by Sean Penn’s 2007 film. Both chronicled the life and death of McCandless, who hiked into the Alaska wilderness with little food and equipment and spent the summer living in the bus. McCandless was found dead in the bus almost four months later. Markielau called troopers in Fairbanks late Thursday to report his wife’s death during a hike, Alaska State Troopers said. The couple was trying to cross the Teklanika River along the Stampede Trail near Healy when the woman was swept under water, the troopers said. The river was flowing high and fast because of recent rains. Markielau reported he was able to pull his wife out of the water a short distance away downriver, but she had died by then, the troopers said. The body has been recovered. In June 2013, three hikers were rescued by a passing See news, Page A3

A volunteer from the Soldotna Shriners hands out candy during Soldotna’s Progress Day Parade in Soldotna, Saturday.

By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

In between some morning and afternoon rain showers, hundreds of people crowded the streets of Soldotna for the annual Progress Days Parade. Whether it was the Nikiski Firefighters, the Kaknu Kruzers or the local Shriners, dozens of businesses and organizations from around the peninsula made their way down Marydale Avenue and Binkley Street in their custom floats and classic cars while entertaining the onlookers and handing out candy. The intermittent rain ended up being a benefit for some resourceful kids who overturned their open umbrellas and used them as catchalls for the candy thrown their way. The parade ended at around noon at the Borough Assembly Building, but that was just the beginning of the day’s festivities. From there,

everyone headed to Soldotna Creek Park to enjoy live music and entertainment, food from local vendors and crafts from local artisans. Part of the entertainment included a performance from the dance companies of Forever Dance studio in Soldotna set to tunes from “Mary Poppins Returns.” Elizabeth and Steve Godsoe have been coming to Soldotna’s Progress Day parades for more than 10 years, and for the last two they have brought their son Oliver to enjoy the day as well. Elizabeth said that their favorite part of the day was all the different food that vendors offered, from reindeer hot dogs to bowls of stir-fry. Judging by the sauce on Oliver’s shirt and his smile while chowing down on some wings, it’s safe to say he agreed with his mom. “Now I know why I packed three outfits for him,” Elizabeth said. Anna Loehr and her mom,

Billie, are longtime attendees of Progress Days — Billie has been coming for about 40 years and Anna a little over 20. Billie said she could remember the days when the parade traveled down the Spur Highway rather than Marydale and Binkley, and commented on how the recent addition of the festivities at Soldotna Creek Park have helped the attendance grow in recent years. The McVey boys, Ryan, Carter, Ben and Gary are all fairly new to the area and to parades in general — Saturday was their first time seeing a parade in person rather than just on TV. When asked what their favorite part of the parade was, each had a different answer. “My favorite was the bright red convertible,” Ryan said. “I really liked the horses,” Carter said. “We got a lot of candy,” Ben said. “It was better than Halloween!”

Barbecue celebrates Soldotna’s early homesteaders and pioneers By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Dozens of people came out to the Soldotna Homestead Museum to celebrate and honor Soldotna’s early pioneers and homesteaders, including Al Hershberger — who was named the grand marshal of the Soldotna Progress Days Parade. Hershberger was also presented with a proclamation from the city of Soldotna, which proclaimed Progress Days weekend as Al Hershberger Appreciation Weekend. During the presentation, Hershberger said he was at a loss for words. After the ceremony, folks were invited to a free barbecue dinner and encouraged to explore the cabins that make up the Soldotna Homestead Museum. “(Getting honored) felt good, but

it was kind of humbling, you know?” Hershberger said. Carroll Brookman, the docent at the museum, said she appreciates events that celebrate Soldotna’s early settlers. Brookman’s family came down to the peninsula from Anchorage in 1958, when Brookman was 15 years old. They homesteaded land that was about 8 miles from town. “Actually, I was outraged,” Brookman said. “I was a 15-year-old girl. My parents were moving me somewhere with no telephone. I was not happy.” As soon as Brookman graduated high school she moved back to Anchorage, and then in 2001, she came back to the homestead to be with her mother. Now, she lives on her parents’ original homestead. See BBQ, Page A3

Strike by Alaska ferry workers snarls travel plans By Becky Bohrer Associated Press

JUNEAU — The first strike by Alaska ferry workers in over 40 years has snarled travel plans for thousands of people during the busy tourist and fishing season, leaving some stranded and catching the attention of a Democratic presidential candidate. Members of the Inlandboatmen’s Union of the Pacific went on strike Wednesday after failing to reach agreement with the state on contract terms, bringing Alaska’s ferry system to a halt. State transportation Commissioner John MacKinnon said the department had cancelled reservations for more than 3,000 travellers as of early Friday and refunded more than $1 million in fares. About 225 passengers and about 90 vehicles had been stranded in ports that aren’t their final destination, he said. He noted this is a peak travel time and that other options, including barges for vehicles and planes, have limited space. A tweet Friday from former Vice President Joe Biden, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, calls on Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy to restore full funding to the system, which lawmakers this year cut by more than $40 million. The cut was seen by some as a compromise with the Dunleavy administration, which initially proposed a deeper cut and has said it wants to find ways to reduce the cost of the system to the state. State funds and fares are key components of the system’s budget, and July, August and September are important revenue months, MacKinnon said. The ferries, an important transportation link for many small communities not connected to Alaska’s

road system, run along 3,500 miles of coast from Bellingham, Washington, through Southeast Alaska and the Gulf of Alaska to the Aleutian island chain. Some communities are only accessible by air or water, and even those options can be limited. Residents of some Southeast Alaska communities put their vehicles on a ferry to Juneau, a larger city of around 30,000 people, so they can load up on supplies at places like Costco. Some fish processors use ferries to transport refrigerator vans, MacKinnon said.

The last strike by ferry workers occurred in 1977 and lasted 20 days, said Meadow Bailey, communications director for the transportation department. By email, she said the department is letting stranded passengers in Ketchikan with no other lodging options stay on board an idled ferry that had been bound for Bellingham until they can make alternate arrangements. She said fewer than 20 people were on board and had access to beds and showers. Earlier this week,

MacKinnon questioned the timing of the strike, coinciding with the Southeast Alaska State Fair. “We’re disappointed that they chose this time to do it,” he said. “I think there was probably some calculation behind that.” The union says the dispute goes back nearly three years and cites health care, pay and cuts in ferry service as sticking points. Robb Arnold, a union spokesman, said workers are frustrated by a lack of communication on what the cuts could mean for them.

State Administration Commissioner Kelly Tshibaka has called the strike unlawful and called on the union to meet with the state and a federal mediator. The state said starting Aug. 1, striking employees will be responsible for paying their health insurance premiums. Patti Mackey, president and CEO of the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau, called the strike a big deal. Many in her community work on ferries or they know someone who does, Mackey said. Ketchikan gets several

thousand visitors a year who come by ferry, some with RVs, she said. State Sen. Jesse Kiehl, a Juneau Democrat, called the ferries essential infrastructure. He said it’s important for the two sides to resume talks and try to reach a resolution. “There are people stuck and businesses hurting, and there’s already economic damage happening,” he said. “Anyone who thinks that this is painless and someone else is filling the void has not yet seen the whole picture.”

‘Poor man’s polo’ finds its way to the Kenai By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

On Thursday nights, Maya Johnson can be found getting her horse geared up for a game of polocrosse. Johnson first heard of the team sport — a combination of polo and lacrosse — when she was riding on the equestrian team at Dartmouth College. Johnson returned to Alaska several years ago, bringing the sport with her. Her former riding instructor and director of riding at Dartmouth, Sally Batton, quite literally wrote the book on polocrosse. She visits

Alaska once a year, offering polocrosse clinics for people like Johnson, who are passionate about the sport. “She started teaching our group up here and everyone got pretty into it,” Johnson said. Johnson said there are also polocrosse groups in Homer and Anchorage. “We haven’t actually played them, but that’s our goal,” Johnson said. In polocrosse, there are three people and horses on a team. Similar to soccer, one teammate takes offense, the other defense and another plays the midfield. Instead of lacrosse rackets, the sport

has specially made rackets with a small netted basket, used for scooping up the ball from the ground. The horse community is pretty small on the central peninsula, Johnson said. “We pretty much all know each other,” Johnson. On Thursday night, several people came out to play. Johnson said the group who comes to play is getting bigger. “It gets really competitive,” Johnson said. “I like seeing everyone laughing and trying to push everyone out of the way.” Johnson coordinates her Thursday games at Ridgeway

Farms, where the riding arena almost meets exact regulation size. Abby Ala, owner of Ridgeway Farms and Johnson’s grandma, said polocrosse is an accessible sport for anyone who enjoys riding. “This is a poor man’s polo,” Ala said. “It’s fun. You don’t have to have a ton of money. You don’t have to have a lot of experience. You can be really young and do it and you can be older and do it.” Johnson said residents interested in learning more about the sport can contact her via the Kenai Polocrosse Facebook Group.

Friday morning until 11 a.m. Monday. If the House does pass its legislation, it would then go to Gov. Mike Dunleavy who would have the power to veto those bills. The governor and many of his supporters in the

Legislature have made a $3,000 PFD a priority and it’s unclear how he might respond to legislation on his desk that doesn’t allocate that amount. However, if the House does obtain 30 votes, in combination with the sen-

ate’s previous vote of 190, there would be enough votes in the Legislature to override the governor’s veto, assuming no one changes their vote. If the legislation does not pass then the government will remain unfund-

ed and another special session may have to be called. In a press conference via telephone Thursday, Governor Dunleavy told reporters, “if the work’s not done, we have to” have yet another special

session. Whether or not there will be enough votes to avoid that will become clear soon, said House Minority Leader Lance Pruitt, R-Anchorage, said, “I guess we’ll find out Monday.”

Fairbanks youth shelter looks for options after budget veto FAIRBANKS — Fairbanks’ only shelter for homeless youth faces an uncertain future following Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s veto of community assistance grants that provide funding for it and other nonprofit agencies. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that vetoes eliminated a grant that funded more than half The Door’s budget. Marylee Bates, who runs The Door, says the shelter is looking for new ways to raise money. Since the cuts were announced, she says the shelter has moved to cut costs, including cutting her position from 40 paid hours a week to 20. She says the shelter would need to seek a waiver from the state to change operational structures. The shelter is among the entities affected by Dunleavy’s vetoes, which he has defended as an effort to address the Alaska’s budget deficit.

The women were found dead early Sunday morning inside a home on Kenai’s north side. Police arrested Byrd on Tuesday. Prosecutors suspect the women may have been killed over a drug deal.

Byrd told police had no involvement in the shootings. Online court documents do not list an attorney for Byrd who could comment for him. By rd’s g ra n d f at h e r, Dwight Davis, told authorities that Byrd told him

the morning after the shootings that he shot the women and was going to through the weapon in the river, online court documents said. The grandfather also said the shootings occurred over money and that Byrd

believed he would get away with it because there were no witnesses, the documents said. Armstrong’s cellphone revealed multiple text conversations with Byrd related to drug dealing and her debt to him, said a

police affidavit included in the court documents. The last conversation ended 20 minutes before the shootings, the documents said. There is no telephone listing for Davis, and he could not be reached for comment Friday.

Dubler said the project envisioned by that agreement no longer exists because the Dunleavy administration isn’t comfortable with the associated risk to the state. The agreement was signed with fanfare in 2017, in front of the presidents of the U.S. and China. Dubler said work done by the corporation since taking over the project in late 2016

proved there is international interest in an Alaska gas project. But he said more work is needed before major liquefied natural gas purchase and investment agreements can be finalized. Nonetheless, he argued the state is making unprecedented progress. “I think we’re closer now than we’ve ever been” to making a gas line project happen, he said.

Similar arguments have been made during prior iterations of the project. The corporation is downsizing, and its remaining employees will focus on completing an environmental review process before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. A favorable decision at the end of that process could make the project more attractive to potential

partners, he said. Dunleavy has said he wants the state to back away from leading the project and instead focus on bringing in partners, such as large oil companies, to take it over. Rep. Chris Tuck, an Anchorage Democrat, said this seems to be taking the project back to early 2016 when BP, ConocoPhillips and ExxonMobil were partners with the state but

determined that global energy markets made the economics of the project difficult. Company representatives at that time said they would either shelve or slow down the project until market conditions improved or let the state examine ways to make it more economic. The state, under Walker, chose the latter.

Minimum wage hike only a political stunt O

n Thursday, the House of Representatives voted to raise the national minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025. Given the realities of the U.S Senate and the White House, the vote for all practical purposes amounts to a mere political stunt. But it does serve as a reminder that far too many in elected office are still all too willing to confuse their good intentions with sound public policy. Almost always, the well-intended politician resorts to a top-down government-coercion program and almost always, the result falls hardest on those least able to endure it. A recent Congressional Budget Office analysis offers plenty of data to dissuade even the most ardent backer of a higher minimum wage. It won’t, but the data are there. The minimum wage law attacks the poorest and least skilled among us. It tells those people not to enter the labor market because their abilities are not worth the hourly wage they’d be paid. Efforts worth $7.25 an hour (the current federal minimum, since 2009) may be worthwhile to an employer. But more than double that wage, to $15 an hour, and the employer could well conclude the price is just too high. Some of the people such a law is intended to help will live a little better, to be sure. CBO says 1.3 million people will be lifted out of poverty by raising the wage to $15 an hour. But look at the debris it scatters. CBO says if the wage is raised to $15 an hour by 2025, as many as 3.7 million people who might otherwise have jobs will not be working. Presumably, some fraction of that number will fall into poverty. All consumers will pay higher prices for goods and services, as much as businesses can pass along. Businesses will produce fewer goods and services because the cost of production will be higher. The law will cause businesses to look at alternatives, like robotics, to hiring people. Worse still, real income would rise about $8 billion for families below the poverty threshold, but will decrease about $16 billion for those above the poverty line. The net national result would be lower family income. So in addition to all the other damage it causes, it’s an inefficient redistribution program dressed up as a labor issue. The bottom line is, for every $2 the government confiscates from those above the poverty line, it will generously redistribute $1 to the intended beneficiaries. That other dollar must cover a lot of overhead. Now about a distraction in CBO’s data. The agency says 1.3 million people - not families, people - would be lifted out of poverty. But everywhere else in the analysis, CBO uses the term “family” as though most people who work in minimum-wage jobs are supporting whole families. Yet 94 percent of people from 16 to 19 are low-wage workers; 30 percent of those over 19 are. About 7 in 10 low-wage workers have not graduated from high school. So essentially, we are talking about a redistribution law that would lower the aggregate family income, reduce the goods-and-services economy, raise costs for all consumers, kick millions out of the workforce, and inefficiently distribute benefits to a targeted class consisting of a fraction of young people without high school diplomas. Somehow, that’s not how it’s going to sound on the campaign commercial of the candidate bragging about “courageously standing up to big business.” And still the people who really do need help can’t get a job. — The Orange County Register, July 19

Move on? No thanks. Both sides aim to keep talking Mueller By Zeke Miller Associated Press

What others say

|

WASHINGTON — “It’s over,” President Donald Trump declared after former special counsel Robert Mueller ended hours of testimony about his two-year investigation into Russian election interference. But don’t expect Trump or the Democrats looking to replace him in 2020 to just move on. Mueller’s marathon Capitol Hill appearance on Wednesday offered few new insights but no shortage of political fodder for both Democrats and Republicans in Washington, where many would rather keep the argument going than mark its end. Both parties will keep waving the special counsel’s findings — and talking about the possibility of impeachment — to motivate core supporters in the coming presidential campaign. That may be especially true for Trump, whose political strategy relies on conflict, with the Russia investigation remaining a potent adversary. While the Mueller probe loomed as a pressing political problem for Trump, he also saw that it could be turned into an asset. From the start, he’s peppered his campaign rallies with complaints about the swirling investigation getting in the way of his agenda. And Trump has no plans to let go of the now-concluded Mueller inquiry as his focus turns toward reelection, standing ready to include

it in the litany of perceived slights and political buzzwords that punctuate his raucous rallies and acerbic tweets. “It’s always going to be high on the set list,” former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said of the Mueller probe. Trump himself brought up Mueller unprompted to a roomful of donors in West Virginia on Wednesday night, hours after Mueller concluded his testimony. Trump asserted that Mueller’s congressional testimony was a miserable effort by Democrats to discredit him, West Virginia Senate President Mitch Carmichael told the AP. The president also called the hearings a dud for anyone who thought new, more damaging information would emerge, Carmichael said. On Twitter on Thursday morning, Trump quoted triumphantly from the words of “Fox & Friends” hosts who bashed Mueller and expressed support for his administration. It will be that way for Democratic presidential candidates, too, as they seek to win over highly motivated primary voters who believe Mueller’s report was a roadmap for impeachment. Never mind that the party’s leadership in Washington would rather pivot toward the pocket-book issues that affect voters directly. Operatives in both parties see Mueller as a potent — and lasting — rallying cry for their respective political cores, in a political environment

where turning out reliable supporters is viewed as more efficient than winning over skeptics in the political center. “Both sides are going to use it, “said Republican consultant David Kochel. Trump, in particular, has excelled at revving up base supporters with harsh rhetoric about straw men, from federal judges to foreign leaders, he noted. “It’s all about that base.” That dynamic was on display for Democrats this week in Detroit, where the NAACP held its annual conference and approved a resolution calling on the House to begin impeachment proceedings. While Mueller was testifying in Washington, several 2020 contenders spoke to the organization and reiterated their calls for impeachment. Elizabeth Warren, one of the most vocal candidates pressing for impeachment proceedings, acknowledged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s reservations. “I understand that there are people who for political reasons say it’s not where we want to be,” the Massachusetts senator said. “But in my view, some things are above politics. And one of them is our constitutional responsibilities to do what is right, and the responsibility of the Congress of the United States of America when a president breaks the law is to bring impeachment charges against that president.” Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend,

Indiana, struck a more centrist tone, saying the best resolution to the nation’s politics is to defeat Trump in next year’s election. While he touted the importance of impeachment proceedings, he stopped short of pushing Democrats to start them. “There’s more than enough in that report to interpret it as an impeachment referral,” he told reporters. “I believe that an impeachment inquiry would bring more facts to light. I also believe that the Republican Senate will not act. And so I’m focusing on the best thing I can do about the Trump presidency, which is to defeat him in November 2020.” Former Vice President Joe Biden is the most prominent Democratic White House hopeful who hasn’t taken a firm stand on the issue of impeachment, a position that could be increasingly untenable as the primary unfolds. Even as White House officials proclaim they want to move on, they are keeping up their criticism of Mueller’s team and pushing to “investigate the investigators,” seeing long-term gain in prolonging the saga. “It really is time to move on,” White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway told reporters Thursday, moments before demanding an investigation of Mueller’s team. “We need to know who was in charge of the Mueller investigation,” she said.

Homer is a great place for people — and bees By Rob Lund For the Homer News

O

ver the last couple of years, Homer has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of honey bee colonies kept in the city, providing Homer with more local honey and pollination for the city’s abundant fruit trees, raspberry patches and vegetable gardens. Despite these benefits, sometimes people discover that living with honey bees is not all sweetness and raspberries. Despite the fact that beekeepers almost universally strive to avoid annoying their neighbors, bees can be nuisance. Here are a few suggestions you

might want to consider if you are one of those (rare) annoyed neighbors. If you see honey bees in your yard and garden, relax. Foraging honey bees virtually never sting. If someone in your family gets stung, don’t immediately blame honey bees — it was, in fact, most likely a wasp. Don’t worry about your kids — children generally have very robust immune systems, and one or a couple of stings (whatever the source) are painful, but almost certainly harmless. Severe allergic reactions to bee stings are extremely rare; however, if a person stung by a bee or wasp experiences difficulty in breathing and/or loss of consciousness, emergency

medical help must be sought immediately. Two common ways in which honey bees can be a nuisance are by swarming and by impacting nonbeekeepers because of inconsiderate or thoughtless hive location. Honey bees swarm in order to start another colony in a new location. It’s a fascinating process to witness, but for people who don’t understand honey bee behavior, it is an understatement to say that encountering a swarm can be an alarming experience. If it happens to you, the first thing to do is: Relax. Honey bees act aggressively in order to defend their homes — bees in a swarm are between homes.

In essence, they are homeless vagabonds who lack a home to defend, and therefore they lack a reason to sting. There may be a lot of them, more than, perhaps, you wanted to see, but they mean no harm. Please do not spray them with poison. The right way to deal with a swarm is to get in touch with a local beekeeper. Call longtime beekeeper Linda Gorman at 907-399-9211 or me at 907-235-3608. We can provide names of beekeepers who are willing to collect swarms and help relieve you of your unexpected guests. In the meantime, you might want to take a couple of photos (yes, you can closely

approach the swarm) — someone will surely be impressed. If the bees from a neighboring beekeeper are interfering with the quality of your life, discussing the problem with the beekeeper (if you know who it is) is a good place to start. If you can’t locate the source of the bees, or get satisfaction from the responsible party, contact Linda Gorman or me and ask them to put you in contact with a spokesperson for the local beekeeping community. An experienced beekeeper can be a useful mediator and advisor. Honey bees are not simply beneficial insects; they are crucial to the

existence of life on earth as we know it. Unfortunately for both bees and people, life on earth has been challenged by modern agricultural and industrial practices, and honey bees find it increasingly difficult to find a suitable place in the partnership of all living things. Homer is not just a great place for people; it’s also a great place for honey bees. I hope in the years to come that we can all enjoy the benefits of honey bees without being inconvenienced by their proximity. Rob Lund is a longtime Homer resident who has been keeping bees for nearly 50 years.

Syrian rebel town pounded, 11 killed in market airstrike By Sarah El Deeb Associated Press

BEIRUT — A Syrian government airstrike hit a busy openair market in the country’s northwest on Saturday, killing at least 11 people, most of them children, according to activists. The town of Ariha has been particularly targeted over the last week as the government escalates its offensive against the country’s last rebel stronghold. The airstrike in Ariha left an 18-month-old girl with an amputated leg, according to Dr. Mohamad Abrash, a surgeon and chief of Idlib’s central hospital. He said the girl’s father and brother died in

the bombing, while her mother is in the ICU in the bed opposite her with a chest injury and internal bleeding in the head. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war, and another activist collective, called Ariha Today, said most of those killed were children. Ariha Today named six children under the age of 14 who it said were killed in the airstrike. Ariha has been repeatedly targeted over the past week as Syria’s government looks to regain momentum in its stalled offensive, which began in late April. It is one of the main towns in Idlib province, which along with the surrounding rural areas of Hama province,

are home to 3 million people. Separately, local doctors said two medics and an ambulance driver were killed when an airstrike targeted their vehicle in Kfar Zita, a town on the frontline in Hama province, at the edge of the rebel stronghold. Ghayath, an activist in Ariha who only gave his first name out of fears for his safety, said the strike hit the town during the busy weekly bazaar when people come to buy food and other necessities. He said the death toll could have been higher if it were not for the warning from the local civilian defense team against large gatherings. “The strike hit the main square, in the center of town,”

he said. “This is a systematic displacement policy to empty the busy town out,” said Abrash, the doctor, who said the injured travel nearly five kilometers (3 miles) to reach Idlib city, which has the most well-equipped hospital for surgery. In the Syrian government’s airstrike campaign, backed by ally Russia, warplanes have targeted medical centers, water plants and residential areas, in what the U.N. and rights groups call a deliberate campaign that amounts to war crimes. The rebel enclave is dominated by al-Qaida-linked militants and other jihadi groups. The government says it is targeting terrorist locations.

Most of the civilians living in the rebel stronghold have already been displaced by other bouts of violence, and have chosen not to live in government-captured areas. Over the last three years, the government regained control of most of the territories that were initially seized by the opposition in the early days of the civil conflict — now in its 9th year. Those military victories, backed by Russian airpower and Iranian-backed militias on the ground, followed intense military campaigns and tight sieges that forced rebels to surrender and move north. Last week, a residential building in Ariha was hit, killing a mother and two of her

daughters, while two other girls are recovering in the hospital. The father survived the attack. The U.N. human rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, said Friday that the world’s most powerful nations are failing to show leadership in dealing with the Syrian crisis “resulting in a tragedy on such a vast scale that we no longer seem to be able to relate to it at all.” According to her office, at least 450 civilians were killed since the offensive began in April 30, including more than 100 in the last 10 days alone. More than 440,000 people were displaced inside the crowded enclave to escape the airstrikes.

Judge weighs ordering switch to paper ballots in Georgia By Kate Brumback Associated Press

ATLANTA — Georgia allowed its election system to grow “way too old and archaic” and now has a deep hole to dig out of to ensure that the constitutional right to vote is protected, according to U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg. Now Totenberg is in the difficult position of having to decide whether the state, which plans to implement a new voting system statewide next year, must immediately abandon its outdated voting machines in favor of an interim solution for special and municipal elections to be held this fall. Election integrity advocates and individual voters sued Georgia election officials in 2017 alleging that the touchscreen voting machines the state has used since 2002 are unsecure and vulnerable to hacking. They’ve asked Totenberg to order the state to immediately switch to hand-marked paper

ballots. But lawyers for state election officials and for Fulton County, the state’s most populous county that includes most of Atlanta, argued that the state is in the process of implementing a new system, and it would be too costly, burdensome and chaotic to use an interim system for elections this fall and then switch to the new permanent system next year. A law passed this year and signed by Gov. Brian Kemp provides specifications for a new system in which voters make their selections on electronic machines that print out a paper record that is read and tallied by scanners. State officials have said it will be in place for the 2020 presidential election. Lawyers for the plaintiffs argued Friday that the current system is so unsecure and vulnerable to manipulation that it cannot be relied upon, jeopardizing voters’ constitutional rights. “We can’t sacrifice people’s right to vote just because

Today in History Today is Sunday, July 28, the 209th day of 2019. There are 156 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 28, 1976, an earthquake devastated northern China, killing at least 242,000 people, according to an official estimate. On this date: In 1609, the English ship Sea Venture, commanded by Adm. Sir George Somers, ran ashore on Bermuda, where the passengers and crew founded a colony. In 1794, Maximilien Robespierre, a leading figure of the French Revolution, was sent to the guillotine. In 1914, World War I began as Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. In 1915, more than 300 American sailors and Marines arrived in Haiti to restore order following the killing of Haitian President Vibrun Guillaume Sam by rebels, beginning a 19-year U.S. occupation. In 1932, federal troops forcibly dispersed the so-called “Bonus Army” of World War I veterans who had gathered in Washington to demand payments they weren’t scheduled to receive until 1945. In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt announced the end of coffee rationing, which had limited people to one pound of coffee every five weeks since it began in Nov. 1942. In 1945, the U.S. Senate ratified the United Nations Charter by a vote of 89-2. A U.S. Army bomber crashed into the 79th floor of New York’s Empire State Building, killing 14 people. In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson announced he was increasing the number of American troops in South Vietnam from 75,000 to 125,000 “almost immediately.” In 1984, the Los Angeles Summer Olympics opened. In 1989, Israeli commandos abducted a pro-Iranian Shiite (SHEE’eyet) Muslim cleric, Sheik Abdul-Karim Obeid (AHB’-dool kah-REEM’ oh-BAYD’), from his home in south Lebanon. (He was released in January 2004 as part of a prisoner swap.) In 2006, Actor-director Mel Gibson went into an anti-Semitic tirade as he was being arrested on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California, on suspicion of driving while drunk; Gibson later apologized and was sentenced to probation and alcohol treatment. In 2017, the Senate voted 51-49 to reject Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s last-ditch effort to dismantle President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul with a trimmed-down bill. John McCain, who was about to begin treatments for a brain tumor, joined two other GOP senators in voting against the repeal effort. President Donald Trump announced he was appointing Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to be his chief of staff. British baby Charlie Gard died, a week shy of his first birthday; his parents had fought for the right to take him to the United States for an experimental treatment for a rare genetic disease that left him brain-damaged. Ten years ago: The Senate Judiciary Committee approved Judge Sonia Sotomayor to be the U.S. Supreme Court’s first Hispanic justice, over nearly solid Republican opposition. Anti-abortion activist Scott Roeder (ROH’-dur) pleaded not guilty in Wichita, Kansas, to killing lateterm abortion provider George Tiller. (Roeder was later convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.) The Rev. Frederick J. Eikerenkoetter II, better known as “Reverend Ike,” who preached the gospel of material prosperity to millions nationwide, died in Los Angeles at age 74. Five years ago: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israelis to be ready for a “prolonged” conflict with Hamas in Gaza as both sides held out for bigger gains and a cease-fire in the three-week conflict remained elusive. Theodore “Dutch” VanKirk, 93, the last surviving member of the Enola Gay crew that dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, died in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

Georgia has left this system in place for 20 years and it’s so far behind,” said lawyer Bruce Brown, who represents the Coalition for Good Governance and a group of voters. Addressing concerns about an interim system being burdensome to implement, plaintiffs’ lawyers countered that the state put itself in this situation by neglecting the system for so long and ignoring warnings. Lawyer David Cross, who represents another group of voters, urged the judge to force the state to take responsibility. “You are the last resort,” he told her. Georgia’s voting system drew national scrutiny during the closely watched contest for governor last November in which Kemp, a Republican who was the state’s top election official at the time, narrowly defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams. The plaintiffs had asked Totenberg in August to order Georgia to use hand-marked paper ballots for that election.

While Totenberg expressed grave concerns about vulnerabilities in the voting system and scolded state officials for being slow to respond to evidence of those problems, she said a switch to paper ballots so close to the midterm election would be too chaotic. She warned state officials that further delay would be unacceptable. But she seemed conflicted Friday at the conclusion of a two-day hearing. “These are very difficult issues,” she said. “I’m going to wrestle with them the best that I can, but these are not simple issues.” She recognized that the state had taken concrete steps since her warning last year, with lawmakers providing specifications for a new system, appropriating funds and beginning the procurement process. But she also said she wished the state had not let the situation become so dire and wondered what would happen if the state can’t meet its aggressive schedule for implementing the new

system. The request for proposals specifies that vendors must be able to distribute all voting machine equipment before March 31, which is a week after the state’s presidential primary election is set to be held on March 24. Bryan Tyson, a lawyer representing state election officials, told the judge the state plans to announce the new system it’s selected in “a matter of days.” Alex Halderman, a University of Michigan computer science and engineering professor, testified Friday that the state election system has major vulnerabilities and that the safest, most secure system would be hand-marked paper ballots with optical scanners at each precinct. Four county election officials, three of whom will oversee elections this fall, testified that it would be hard to switch to hand-marked paper ballots in time for those elections. They cited difficulties getting enough equipment, as well as challenges training poll workers and

educating voters. They also said they’d have trouble paying for the switch unless the state helps. The two groups of plaintiffs agree that the whole system is flawed and has to go. They also believe the ballot-marking devices the state plans to implement have many of the same problems, and they’ve said they plan to challenge those once the state announces which vendor has won the contract. But they disagree about what the interim solution should be. The plaintiffs represented by Brown are asking the state to use hand-marked paper ballots along with its existing election management system and to use the ballot scanners it currently uses for paper absentee and provisional ballots for all ballots. The plaintiffs represented by Cross want the state to implement its new election management system in time for the fall elections and to use ballot scanners along with hand-marked paper ballots. Totenberg did not say when she would rule.

Trump proposal seeks to crack down on food stamp ‘loophole’ By David A. Lieb Associated Press

Residents signing up for food stamps in Minnesota are provided a brochure about domestic violence, but it doesn’t matter if they even read the pamphlet. The mere fact it was made available could allow them to qualify for government food aid if their earnings or savings exceed federal limits. As odd as that might sound, it’s not actually unusual. Thirty-eight other states also have gotten around federal income or asset limits for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program by using federal welfare grants to produce materials informing food stamp applicants about other available social services. Illinois, for example, produced a flyer briefly listing 21 services, a website and email address and a telephone number for more information. The tactic was encouraged by former President Barack Obama’s administration as a way for states to route federal food aid to households that might not otherwise qualify under a strict enforcement of federal guidelines. Now President Donald Trump’s administration is proposing to end the practice — potentially eliminating food stamps for more than 3 million of the nation’s 36 million recipients. The proposed rule change, outlined this past week by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has highlighted the ideological clash between Trump’s attempts to tighten government entitlement programs and efforts in some states to widen the social safety net. It’s also stirred outrage and uncertainty among some who stand to be affected. “I think it’s pretty rotten,” said Lisa Vega, a single mother of two teenage boys

in suburban Chicago who applied for food stamps last month after losing her job. Because she receives regular support payments from her ex-husband, Vega said her eligibility for food stamps likely hinges on the income eligibility exceptions that Trump’s administration is trying to end. “A lot of these politicians don’t realize that us Americans out here are living paycheck to paycheck, one crisis away from being homeless,” Vega said. “You’re just going to take this kind of stuff away from us when we need it the most?” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said the proposed rule change is intended to close a “loophole” that states have misused to “effectively bypass important eligibility guidelines.” Current federal guidelines forbid people who make more than 130 percent of the poverty level from getting food stamps. But many states believe the cap is too restrictive, especially in cities with a high cost of living, prompting them to bypass the limits. At issue is a federal policy that allows people who receive benefits through other government programs, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, to automatically qualify for the food aid program known as SNAP. The practice, called categorical eligibility, is intended partly to reduce duplicative paperwork. It has also allowed states to grant food stamps to more people. In 2009, Obama’s Agriculture Department sent a memo to its regional directors encouraging states to adopt what it termed as “broadbased categorical eligibility” for food stamps by providing applicants with a minimal TANF-funded benefit such as an informational pamphlet or telephone hotline. Among

other things, Obama’s administration said the expanded eligibility could help families stung by a weak economy and promote savings among lowincome households. Most states adopted the strategy. Thirty states and the District of Columbia are using income limits higher than the federal standard of $1,316 monthly for an individual or $2,252 for a family of three. Thirty-nine states and the District of Columbia have either waived asset limits entirely or set them above federal thresholds, according to the Agriculture Department. The department’s inspector general has raised concerns about the tactic. It also came under public scrutiny last year after self-described millionaire Rob Undersander testified before the Minnesota legislature that he and his wife had legally received about $6,000 in food stamps over 19 months because his considerable assets and Individual Retirement Account withdrawals didn’t count against his eligibility. Undersander, who is a Trump supporter, told The Associated Press this week that he had been trying to make a point — not game the system — and praised Trump’s administration for proposing to tighten eligibility standards. “I think that states just found this loophole, and then I think they’ve been abusing a loophole,” Undersander said. Although Undersander failed to persuade Minnesota to change its policy, critics were more successful in Mississippi. On July 1, Mississippi implemented a state law prohibiting its Department of Human Services from using noncash benefits in other programs to trigger food stamp eligibility. Under the Trump administration’s proposed rule

change, residents in all states would need to be authorized to receive at least $50 a month in TANF benefits for a minimum of six months in order to automatically qualify for food stamps. Subsidies for childcare, employment and workrelated transportation would still count. But the proposal would stop states from linking eligibility to the receipt of an informational brochure. The Minnesota Department of Human Services has estimated that 12,000 of its roughly 400,000 food stamp recipients could be cut off if the federal government eliminates its ability to use a brochure as justification for offering food stamps to those earning up to 165% of the federal poverty level instead of the federal threshold of 130% of the poverty mark. Similar estimates aren’t available for all states. Advocates for the poor say states’ exceptions to federal guidelines have helped people gradually transition off food stamps when they get modest raises at work and have enabled seniors and the disabled to save money without going hungry. Advocates also say the eligibility exceptions have helped people such as Vega, whose income may be slightly above the federal threshold yet have little money left over after paying high housing and utility bills. “I think the Trump administration is trying to make a lot of hay out of how this policy option functions in practice to draw a lot of skepticism about it,” said Nolan Downey, an attorney at the Shriver Center on Poverty Law in Chicago who helped Vega apply for food stamps. “But I think if people have an understanding of what the outcome really was meant to be, it’s something that seems a lot less dubious.”

Twins stay alive at state tournament By Jeff Helminiak Peninsula Clarion

The Post 20 Twins blew out Dimond 11-0 Saturday to stay alive at the American Legion state tournament at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage. The Twins had lost their opening game of the tournament Friday to South 8-5, meaning every game for the Twins is now an elimination game. Post 20, the No. 4 seed, now plays Juneau, the No. 2 seed, at 3 p.m. today. Juneau lost 13-5 to No. 3 Chugiak on Saturday. The Twins and Juneau have not played against each other this season. The Twins are in good shape for today’s game thanks to a remarkably efficient dismantling of Dimond, the

No. 8 seed. Starter Mose Hayes and reliever Chris Jaime combined to shut out Dimond on just two hits and 44 pitches. Head coach Robb Quelland said the only pitcher he does not have available headed in to today is Logan Smith, who got the start Friday against South. “Forty-four pitches is unheard of at this level of play,” Quelland said. The Twins quickly took control of the game by scoring two runs in the first inning and seven in the second inning. Thanks to two more in the fourth inning, the Twins were able to invoke the mercy rule after Dimond batted in the top of the fifth. “This is a great group of young men,” Quelland said. “They’re resilient. They owned their own faults

yesterday and knew what they needed to do today to come out and stay in the tournament.” Jeremy Kupferschmid got the Twins going from his leadoff slot, finishing 3 for 4 with two runs. Quelland said Kupferschmid has been playing well lately after fatigue caught up to him late in the season. “He’s been trying to get his game back in shape the last couple of weeks,” Quelland said of Kupferschmid. “He’s refocused this week with a great game yesterday, today and I’m sure he’ll be ready for tomorrow.” Hayes pitched two innings and allowed just a hit while striking out two. At the plate, he was 3 for 4 with a run and an RBI. Jaime went three innings and gave up just one hit. Davey Belger was 2 for 2 with a

run, while David Michael, Smith and Jaime also added hits. Seth Adkins had two runs. “This team has blended well,” Quelland said. “They’re playing well together. They like each other and energy is high. I think we’ll do well tomorrow.” Post 20 had defeated South, the No. 5 seed, twice in league play, but Reid Brock helped turn the tables Friday. Brock pitched 5 2-3 innings of scoreless relief and also had two RBIs at the plate. Scoring in the game started quick as the Twins jumped all over South starter Jimmy Mcgovern, getting to him for five runs on three hits in 1 1-3 innings. However, South also had success against Twins starter Logan Smith

and grabbed a 6-5 lead after the top of the third. Smith worked three innings and gave up six runs — just two earned — on three hits while walking three and striking out two. “It was one of those games where we did not come out and play well,” Quelland said. South was then able to get to Twins reliever Harrison Metz for two insurance runs — just one earned — in two innings of work. Harold Ochea then shut South down over the final two innings. Metz was 2 for 4 with three RBIs for the Twins, while Smith was 2 for 3 with two RBIs. Hayes also collected two hits for the Twins. For South, Ricky Gatter was 2 for 4 with two runs, while Josh Costello scored three times.

Ostrander moves to steeple final Staff Report Peninsula Clarion

Allie Ostrander, a 2015 graduate of Kenai Central, qualified Friday for the finals of the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. The Soldotna runner, the three-time defending champion in the NCAA steeplechase, was running in her first race after turning pro. She had the second-fastest qualifying time out of two heats. Ostrander ran 9 minutes, 47.54 seconds, to finish second in her heat to Courtney Frerichs, a 2016 Olympian who ran 9:46.35.

The winner of the second heat was Emma Coburn, the 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, in 9:51.43. The point of qualifying is to make it to the final and not post a fast time. Frerich has a PR of 9:00.85, Coburn is at 9:02.58 and Ostrander has run 9:31.44. In the finals, the field will race for three spots in the IAAF World Championships, which run from Sept. 27 to Oct. 6 in Qatar. Coburn already has a spot secured at the World Championships. The final is at 3:09 p.m. ADT. NBCSN has coverage of the meet from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. ADT.

By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

The Peninsula Oilers will close their regular season today with a crucial Alaska Baseball League doubleheader against the Anchorage Bucs at Coral Seymour Memorial Park starting at 2 p.m. The Oilers are locked in a tight battle with the ChugiakEagle River Chinooks for the fourth and final spot in the ABL Top of the World Series Playoffs. The battle is complicated by the fact that the Chinooks, due to the cancellation of a game, will end up with one less game played than the Oilers. While the Oilers and Bucs were getting rained out and postponed Saturday night, the visiting Anchorage Glacier Pilots did the Oilers a huge favor by rallying for four runs in the top of the ninth inning

for a 5-2 victory over the Chinooks. The Oilers are 14-28 and the Chinooks are 13-27, so the Oilers are currently in the lead for the final playoff spot based on their winning percentage of .333 vs. the .325 of the Chinooks. The Chinooks have today off, then host the Pilots on Monday, travel to the Mat-Su Miners on Tuesday and host the Miners on Wednesday. So all the Oilers can do is win as many as possible today and then sit back next week and wait to see if the Chinooks win enough games early next week to take over fourth. One thing that is for sure in the playoffs is that the Bucs will have the top seed. Anchorage clinched the best record in the league by defeating the Oilers 10-8 on Friday to improve to 28-13.

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints quarterback Drew Brees practically laughed while describing himself as “still green” at the onset of his 19th NFL training camp. The smile on the 40-yearold’s face looked like an acknowledgment of how silly he knew he must have sounded as he spoke, even if, to him, there was real logic behind his assertion. “By no means have I arrived,” said Brees, a former Super Bowl MVP and the NFL’s all-time leader in yards passing with 74,437. “I had a coach tell me, ‘As long as you are green, you will continue to grow. As soon as you are ripe, you’ll soon be rotten.’ “As soon as you think you know it all, you’re done,” Brees continued. “So I’m still green. I’ve still got things to learn.” Brees is in the final season of his contract, but

has declined to specify how much longer he might play. He is by no means in denial about the erosion of skills every older athlete faces, but he strives to be proactive in his approach to maximizing his longevity, from the way he trains to the way he eats. The father of three sons and a daughter talks of “finding ways to stay young, feel young, recover, just be as efficient as possible, having the body operate as efficient as possible, doing all the little things to be as accurate as possible, be as quick as possible.” He takes an academic approach to learning about the effects of aging on the body and how to mitigate them. “I study all that stuff,” Brees said. “I feel like I’m See NFL, Page B3

Dressel wins 3 golds in about 2 hours at swim worlds By Beth Harris Peninsula Clarion

GWANGJU, South Korea — Caeleb Dressel made history — again — at the world swimming championships. The American won three gold medals in a span of about two hours Saturday night, duplicating his feat from two years ago in Budapest, Hungary. Dressel has six golds and seven medals overall with one night remaining in the meet. He tied Michael Phelps’ record of seven medals — all gold — at a single worlds in 2017. “It was not easy in ‘17, it was not easy this year,” the 22-year-old Floridian said. “I don’t want it to be easy, I really don’t.” He capped his momentous night by leading off the victorious mixed 4x100-meter freestyle relay. Dressel joined Zach Apple, Mallory Comerford and Simone Manuel in setting

a world record of 3 minutes, 19.40 seconds. That lowered the mark of 3:19.60 set by the U.S. in 2017. Manuel dueled with Australian anchor Bronte Campbell over the final 50. The American clocked 52 seconds to Campbell’s 52.36 to keep Dressel golden. “I had a lot of help on that relay,” he said, pointing out that his 100 split of 47.34 would only have been good enough for bronze in the individual event. “Every time I do a race I always look for the bad.” There wasn’t much to criticize on this night. Dressel opened the evening with a win in the 50 free to complete a 50-100 free sweep. He touched in 21.04 seconds, bettering the championship record of 21.08 set by Brazil’s Cesar Cielo at the 2009 worlds in Rome during the height of the rubber suit era.

Bruno Fratus of Brazil and Kristian Gkolomeev of Greece tied for silver in 21.45. Coming back just 34 minutes later, Dressel won the 100 fly in 49.66 a night after breaking Phelps’ world record in the semifinals. “Caeleb was amazing,” said South Africa’s Chad le Clos, the bronze medalist in the fly. On his three trips to the podium, Dressel tied a bandanna belonging to his late high school mentor onto the ribbon holding his medal. He stood with his right hand over his heart for the U.S. anthem. “She loved me and I loved her, it’s as simple as that,” Dressel said, referring to math teacher Claire McCool, who died in December 2017. “That bandanna is just the last piece I have of her. I just wanted to bring her along for the journey.” Dressel wraps up his meet Sunday in the 4x100 medley relay.

“I’ll be ready to swim one tomorrow and swim one fast,” he said. Katie Ledecky won her first gold medal in her final event of an illnessplagued worlds, rallying on the last lap to claim the 800 free. “That girl’s tough as nails,” Dressel said. Ledecky led the first seven laps before Simona Quadarella took over. The Italian was in front the next seven laps before it all came down to the final 50 meters. “Simona was having a great race and pulled up right next to me,” Ledecky said. “When she did that I kind of felt like I could stick with her and rely on my speed, so just tried to stay calm, relaxed from the 500 to the 750.” That’s when Ledecky turned on the jets and completed the last lap in 29.19 seconds to Quadarella’s 30.76. “Just put my legs into it and got my hand to the wall,” she said.

Ledecky won in 8:13.58. Quadarella, who won the 1,500 free in Ledecky’s absence, took silver in 8:14.99. Ariarne Titmus of Australia earned bronze in 8:15.70. Titmus stunned Ledecky to win the 400 free on the first night before the American got sick and withdrew from the 200 free preliminaries and 1,500 final. Ledecky took silvers in the 400 free and 4x200 free relay. Regan Smith, Dressel’s 17-year-old teammate, won the 200 backstroke in 2:03.69, the second-fastest time in history. “To be 2:03 two nights in a row, I was super, super stoked,” Smith said. She set the world record of 2:03.55 in Friday’s semifinals and was on pace to lower it again before fading on the last lap. “I really went for it on the first hundred,” Smith said. “It hurt really bad going home, but I’m really glad that I gave it my all two nights in a row.”

Kyle Busch hunts Pocono history LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Kyle Busch has swept race weekends across all NASCAR series, so perhaps the idea of driving four times in next year’s packed Pocono slate would hold some appeal for the sport’s winningest driver. “Hell no,” Busch said to laughter. “Not unless they put up a 50-grand bounty or something.” Just $50,000 to compete in the Truck, Xfinity and two Cup Series races in 48 hours next June? That’s chump change in prize money for a driver who has won NASCAR’s richest races — and the 2015 Cup championship. Busch’s Bounty has a nice promotional ring for Pocono. And he just could win them all. Busch was tripped up for years by the tri-oval track, failing to win his first 25 tries in the elite Cup races until he broke through in July 2017 on a bump-and-run on Kevin Harvick to grab the lead with 16 laps and take the checkered flag. Busch finished third in the first race last season and has won the last two times at Pocono. He stormed from the bottom half of the field to win last July and matched Hall of Fame driver Rusty Wallace for ninth on the NASCAR Cup Series career victory list with 55 when he took the checkered flag in June. Busch has remained stuck on four wins in 2019 since Pocono but still has two runner-up finishes over the last six races. With a victory Sunday, Busch could join Bobby Allison in 1982 and 1983 and Tim Richmond in 1986 and 1987 as the only drivers to win three straight Pocono races. Busch could become the eighth driver since NASCAR began racing at Pocono in 1974 to sweep both races here in a season, joining Bill Elliott in 1985, Bobby Labonte in 1999, Jimmie Johnson in 2004, Denny Hamlin in 2006, Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 2014, and Allison and Richmond. “I’d love the opportunity to achieve that and be there alongside those guys,” Busch said Saturday. “It’s pretty cool to have some of those things when you go to different places and be able to score the wins like we have.” Busch enters the weekend at Pocono with 206 career wins among NASCAR’s top three divisions: Cup (55), Xfinity (95) and Truck (56). “The in-a-rows and the dominance at certain race tracks is obviously cool, too,” Busch said. Busch’s losing skid at

Pocono seems a distant memory, the kind of slump Harvick, another former NASCAR champ, would like to erase. Once the fiercest of rivals, Busch and Harvick have a relationship that has cooled in recent years, a mutual respect formed between two perennial championship contenders. Harvick has won at every active track except Pocono and Kentucky. He is 0 for 37 at Pocono, though he was runner-up in both 2017 races. “We’ve been in position a number of times to win here,” Harvick said. “We’ve had a lot of things go wrong here over the past several years. (We’re) in contention to win races, so if you stay in contention to win races long enough, you will.” Just ask Busch. Here are more things to know at Pocono: CALL FOR BACKUP Kyle Larson smacked the outside wall in the first practice session and was forced to go to a backup No. 42 Chevrolet. It was a familiar scene for Larson — he slammed the outside wall last week in practice at New Hampshire and was dumped to the rear of the field. “I’ve got to stop being stupid,” Larson said. Chase Elliott ran into trouble not much longer into the 55-minute practice session Saturday morning and suffered damage to the right rear of the No. 9 Chevrolet. He also went to a backup car. “That’s what you get when you make dumb decisions,” Elliott said. Both drivers used backup cars in the second practice and qualifying.

REMEMBERING HARRISON Pocono will hold a toast on lap 11 for Nick Harrison, a crew chief who died overnight after last week’s Xfinity Series race. The track also displayed a memorial with Harrison’s name and No. 11 (for his Xfinity car) painted on a rock.

Chastain wins LONG POND, Pa. — Ross Chastain dominated at Pocono Raceway on Saturday to win a NASCAR Truck Series race for the third time this season. Chastain dedicated the victory to popular crew chief Nick Harrison, who died overnight hours after last week’s Xfinity Series race. “This one’s for you, Nick!” Chastain yelled over the radio as he took the checkered flag.

(AP Photo/Christophe Ena)

Bernal, 22, set to win Tour de France VAL THORENS, France (AP) — Perpetuating the tradition of great Colombian climbers, Egan Bernal left his mark on the Tour de France in the mountains. But unlikehisflashypredecessors,heis alsopoisedtowincycling’sbiggest race. At just 22. Bernal kept the yellow jersey Saturday after the last Alpine stage, and barring a crash or a last-minute health issue he will become the first Colombian to win the Tour when it ends on Paris’ Champs-Elysees with a largely processional stage on Sunday. Bernal will also become the youngest post-World War II winner of the Tour. “Colombia always had great climbers,” Bernal said. “We won the Giro, the Vuelta, but it never happened before on the Tour. For many years we had great cyclists, we never managed to win. It

did not work out on the Tour de France. Now we have it.” Long before Bernal was born, Colombian riders like Lucho Herrera and Fabio Parra conquered the hearts of cycling fans with long and spectacular raids in the Tour mountains. But for all their brilliance, they never came close to winning the race. More recently, Nairo Quintana ended up runner-up twice behind Chris Froome but lacked the time trialing abilities required to overcome the British four-time champion. This year’s route, the highest in the race history with five summit finishes — including three stages finishing above 2,000 meters and only 54 kilometers of time trialing — gave natural-born climber Bernal a golden opportunity. Unlike Bradley Wiggins, Froome and Geraint Thomas

— the three other riders who won the Tour for the British outfit Ineos — Bernal is not a race-againstthe-clock specialist. He has built his success on consistent performances in the Pyrenees and a tremendous attack in the Alps after losing ground in the individual time trial. “Thetalentistheretosee,hewas borntogouphillfast,”saidBernal’s teammate and now deposed champion Geraint Thomas. “He has got many, many great years in front of him. A v ery bright future.” Thomas, lagging 1 minute and 11secondsbehindoverall,should finish runner-up to give the Ineos team a 1-2 finish in Paris, like they did in 2012 when the squad was called Sky. Weighing only 59 kilograms (130 pounds), the super-light Bernal thrived in rarefied air, and it was fitting that he delivered his

fatal blow in the Col de l’Iseran, the Tour’s highest point this year at 2,770 meters. A cycling star in the making, Bernal took the race lead Friday when Stage 19 was dramatically cut short by a landslide across the route to the Alpine ski station of Tignes and by a violent hailstorm that made road conditions too icy for riders racing on two wheels barely wider than their thumbs. He’d moved away from Julian Alaphilippe,thepunchyriderfrom Francewhodidmorethananyone to make this Tour the most exciting in decades and held the race lead for 14 days, on a super-difficult climb to the Iseran. When the racewasthenstoppedwithBernal racingawayonthedownhill,organizers decided the riders’ timings tothetopoftheIseranclimbwould be used to determine the overall standings.

McIlroy leads in Memphis MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Nobody likes missing the cut by a stroke, and doing it in a major championship at home hurts even more. Rory McIlroy is showing he can bounce back quickly. McIlroy shot an 8-under 62 on Saturday in the FedEx St. Jude Invitational to take a one-stroke lead over Brooks Koepka at the World Golf Championships event. McIlroy, who missed the cut by a stroke last week in the British Open on his home turf in Northern Ireland, had a nine-birdie, one-bogey round to move from a tie for 17th to the top of the leaderboard at TPC Southwind. The man who shattered the screen of a woman’s cellphone with his opening tee shot at Royal Portrush finished the round Saturday with three straight birdies. “I guess the pressure’s off a little bit,” McIlroy said. “You’ve had a bad week and you go to the next week and you say, ‘OK I didn’t do this well, I didn’t do this well.’ So you’re sort of trying to focus on that rather than winning the tournament. So for me,

pretty aware of what you lose with the aging process. So everything I do from a training perspective, from a recovery perspective, is to combat that. So you just try to stay ahead of that curve — right? — stay ahead of that curve. And so far, I feel like I’m beating it.” Last season, Brees passed for 3,992 yards, more than in any of his first five NFL seasons in San Diego, but fewer than any season since his arrival in New Orleans in 2006. The extent to which age contributed to his relative dip in yards passing is a matter of debate. The Saints’ offense has been oriented more toward running and short passes since the arrival of 2017 Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara , and New Orleans

this week I wanted to focus on neutralizing my ball flight and trying to dial in my distances. All of a sudden those two little focus points have made me play some good golf again.” McIlroy capped his birdie spurt by rolling in a 27-footer on the par-4 18th for the lead to himself after putting his tee shot into a fairway bunker. He had a 12-under 198 total. Two groups behind McIlroy, Koepka (64) had his chances. The world’s topranked player finished with three straight pars. Now Koepka and McIlroy, who played the first two rounds together, will play together Sunday for the first time in a final round. Second-round leader Matthew Fitzpatrick (69) was third, two strokes back. Marc Leishman (63), Alex Noren (66) and Jon Rahm (68) were three shots behind. “It is exciting,” McIlroy said. “He’s the No. 1 player in the world, four majors in the last three years. He’s the man right now. I got to play with him the last couple days and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed seeing what he can do.”

Koepka says Sunday should be fun duking it out with McIlroy with so much on the line. “That’s who you want to go up against, especially if he’s going to be playing this good,” Koepka said.

EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) — Cresting a wave of South Koreans atop the Evian Championship leaderboard Saturday, Hyo Joo Kim fired a third-round 65 to move one shot clear on 15-under 198. Kim’s latest impressive round of majors golf did not quite match her very first — a record 61 here as a teenager five years ago when she took the title in her elite debut. Top-ranked Sung Hyun Park closed the gap in second by making a birdie on the par-5 18th for a 5-under 66 on the hillside course overlooking Lake Geneva. Four shots back in a tie for third place were seven-time major winner Inbee Park (69) and Jin Young Ko (66), the world No. 2 who won the season’s first major, the ANA Inspiration, in April.

has been one of the NFL’s top six rushing teams in each of the past two seasons. Meanwhile, Brees’ NFL record 74.4 completion percentage last season was complemented by a touchdown to interception ratio of 32-5, better than all but one QB: Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers (25-2). “Nothing’s changed,” Sean Payton said when asked if he’s had to adapt play calling specifically because of Brees’ age. “It’s not like we’ve had to go in a different direction. Look, when we’ve been able to have balance on this team and play good defense and create turnovers, it’s been a pretty good formula for us.” Payton listed the 2006 season, when the Saints advanced to the NFC title game, and the 2009 season, when New Orleans won the Super Bowl, as examples of his more balanced teams.

Brees looks slender, fit and spry as he moves about the offensive backfield on dropbacks and roll-outs. During Saturday’s practice, he connected with young receiver Cyril Grayson Jr. deep down the left side of the field, and shortly after followed that by finding new tight end Jared Cook on an out route of around 20 yards. Later, he whipped a side-arm throw around a defensive lineman and connected with new running back Latavius Murray. And while Payton has spoken of dialing back the workload of Brees and other established veterans during camp, the quarterback does not appear wanting for energy or stamina as he takes time after most practices to refine chemistry with receivers and work on what he calls the “nuances” of the passing game.

Even though the Bucs have clinched, head coach Grant Palmer said his squad will play Sunday’s twin bill just as hard as any other game because what Anchorage really is after is the playoff title. “That’s been the goal since the beginning of the season, but at the same time I’m proud of the guys for busting their butts to do what we did today,” he said. The Bucs jumped out to a 10-2 lead after 3 1-2 innings, but just three of Anchorage’s runs were earned. In the third, the Bucs had two runs in and two out when Ryan Sullivan broke his bat and hit a dribbler to second. With the debris in the air, Victor Carlino could not make the play, and let the ball get by him allowing Chad Castillo to score. The Bucs would end up with six runs in the inning off starter and loser Bryan Woo. In the fourth inning, errors by shortstop Skyler Messinger and first baseman Connor McCord led to all four runs against reliever Kyle Muller being unearned. “If we make those plays, we win the game,” Oilers head coach Kyle Brown said. “It’s that simple. I felt like we gave them this game. They’re a good team, but we gave it to them.” Muller, Steven Ordorica, Drew Thorpe and Calvin Farris all combined to keep the Bucs off the board after the fourth inning to allow the Oilers to chip away at the lead. But Bucs starter Liam Henry was solid, and fortunate, when he had to be. In the third inning, the Oilers trailed 6-2 and had runners

on first and third with two outs when Messinger ripped a ball that was snared by Bucs third baseman Justin Cook to end the inning. In the fourth, the Oilers had cut it to 10-3 and would have had runners on first and second, but Carlino was caught off second base when the Bucs cut the relay. Henry then cruised through the fifth and sixth. “We’ve emphasized with pitchers that when things get tough, you need to be tougher,” Palmer said. “He gave us six really strong innings.” Led by a red-hot top of the order, the Oilers stormed back to make a game out of it by roughing up Bucs reliever Keaton Chase, who would give up five runs in 1 2-3 innings. Leadoff hitter Travis Bohall was 4 for 5 with three RBIs and two runs, while No. 2 hitter Bobby Goodloe was 3 for 3 with two RBIs. But the next five in the order were just 2 for 21 as the Oilers let scoring opportunities pass by. “We had a lot of ones up there that could have been crooked numbers,” Brown said. In the seventh, the Oilers had cut it to 10-4 and had runners on first and third with two outs when Jaden Fein lined out to center fielder Isaac Barrera. In the eighth, the Oilers sliced the lead to 10-8 and had runners on first and third with two outs when the Bucs called on closer Colton Rendon. He retired the last four batters in order to clinch the league’s best record. “He’s been our horse all summer,” Palmer said of Rendon, who sports an ERA of 0.76. “We’re not in the position we are now without him.” Paul Steffensen and

8 tips for saving money on groceries By Katie Workman

item is in limited supply and intended to sell out. Often these prices are discounted heavily since the store is trying to clear its shelves for new products.

Associated Press

I do not know of a single person who doesn’t like to save money. And the supermarket is one of the most important places to be shopping-savvy. The good news is there are so many easy and effective ways to slash your grocery budget. Here are 8 tips that will bring that receipt total down considerably. 1. Buy whole fruits and vegetables. Pound for pound, whenever you buy anything that has been peeled, cut up or prepped in any way, you are paying a premium. And not only are you paying more for the work that went into the prepared food, you may lose additional money on the back end, since these items are more perishable than their whole counterparts. Pre-diced onion might only last for a handful of days in the fridge, for example, while whole onions will last for weeks. 2. Don’t snub store brands. House brand foods used to feel like an inferior version of name brand items, but these days stores have more formidable relationships with manufacturers, and often the house brand of something might be made by the same company as a reputable brand name product. You will have to taste some to figure out what you like. And stores like Costco with their Kirkland brand items, or Trader Joe’s with their eponymous line of groceries are

6. Stock up on on-sale nonperishables. If you have the storage space, when you see that canned broth or tomatoes or beans or pasta is on sale, throw a few extra into your cart. I once bought 10 containers of mustard because the price was so good (I happen to really love mustard).

powerful examples of how good store brand products can be. 3. Put the freezer to work. If pork chops are on sale but you don’t plan to make them this week, consider buying them and freezing them for later. Or if your market or price club has a great deal on bulk chicken or ground beef, take advantage of it, and just divide up the package into smaller freezer-proof containers or bags. Label everything and wrap it well.

Frozen shrimp also deserves a special shout-out: Most shrimp that you buy “fresh” was actually frozen and defrosted anyway, so stash a bag in the freezer for quick weeknight dinners. Frozen vegetables and fruit are also great to have on hand. 4. Look for the bargain aisle. Many supermarkets have a designated aisle where they feature a selection of reduced-price items. Often these items are

Plant lovers find each other at swaps, online or in person

By Tracee M. Herbaugh Associated Press

Plant lovers have long gotten together to trade seeds and growing advice, and the latest generation is following suit with modern plant swaps. The swaps (sometimes called plant exchanges) for amateur horticulturalists are popping up in homes, parking lots, trendy gardening stores and online. They’re about exchanging advice and meeting like-minded people, says 35-year-old Ana Carlson, who has attended several plant swaps in New York City and Los Angeles, where she lives. “People just talk and it is fun,” she said. “I don’t go looking for plants because I have more than enough.” Carlson, who owns an online “plant decor” shop, Sill Appeal , and has nearly 200 houseplants, initially learned about the swaps through social media a few years ago, when plants became a hobby. “They’re very social events,” she said. “Every time I go, I meet people.” While plant swaps can include outdoor varieties, many people trade houseplants, which are back in style thanks in part to social media. Instagram has been flooded with “Plantstagrammers” or “plant influencers,” who post daily photos of houseplants under a variety of hashtags, including #plantcommunity (559,000 posts) and

#houseplantlove (118,000 posts). On Pinterest, plant devotees display a plethora of photos, blog posts and articles chronicling unusual, colorful and pet-friendly houseplants. “Right now, the plant world is kind of insane,” says Sue Eggen, the creative director at Urban Jungle , a plant shop in Philadelphia. “It’s like the 1970s all over again — the coolest thing millennials can do is care for plants.” Last month, Eggen and the Urban Jungle team organized a plant swap for some 50 customers who purchased tickets. There were snacks and beverages, and attendees listened to a live recording of Bloom and Grow radio , a podcast from Broadway actress Maria Failla that’s all about houseplants. Some plant lovers come to swaps for expensive and rare finds. A full-size pink princess philodendron or a variegated monstera, two fashionable plants not readily found in gardening stores, can cost upward of $150 retail. At a plant swap, however, someone might bring in a cutting that can be propagated. “People blew me away with what they brought in,” Eggen said. Bala Rathinasabapathi, a professor in the horticultural sciences department at University of Florida, says the produce found in grocery stores today is a result of ancient plant swaps.

“Humans domesticated plants about 10,000 years ago, and plant exchanges followed shortly after,” Rathinasabapathi said. “People used plants like currency.” Today, however, swaps are mostly characteristic of urban areas, he said. Philadelphia resident Christina Tessaro, 37, learned of a local plant exchange group on Facebook with more than 7,000 members. She originally joined the group to learn more about plants after she took a job at the Philadelphia Horticultural Society. Soon, houseplants became a hobby. A couple members of the group have organized plant pop-up nights throughout Philadelphia for people to meet in person and socialize. “I got to meet a few people I recognized online,” Tessaro said. “It’s been really nice to put a face to a name.” Online swaps have also expanded social circles for long-time plant lovers. “We started out swapping plants as teens,” said Stan Miklis, 62, of Dallas, who studied horticulture in high school in Texas. He said he attended plant parties as a teen and young man. Now, as a farmer, he learns of new plant swaps via the Internet. “My whole life is and has always been plants,” Miklis said. “All my friends are from the plant circle.”

seasonal, and you might see them discounted further after a holiday (matzoh ball mix is practically free right after Passover, and candy canes are a steal on Dec. 26). 5. Look for “While Supplies Last” signage. In one of the markets where I shop, some of the sales signs on the shelves have additional language (in small print, so get in close to check!) letting shoppers know that an

7. Look for clearance areas in the market. Day-old pastries and bread (perfect for French toast or stuffing!) might be tucked into a small shelf near the bakery. Corners of the store may have shelves with collections of miscellaneous products that no longer warrant space on the main shelves. This might be because they are close to expiration, or there are just a few left and they aren’t being restocked. You could also get some serious steals on packages that got a little dinged up, but the contents are still fine. (Who cares what the outside of the box of cereal looks like?) 8. Look at the store circular before you go. Many major markets have a website that will show you the items on sale that week. A chance to think about this in advance means that you can meal-plan around the pot roast that is on special, or decide this is the week to stock up on snacks for back to school.

Benevolent or fearsome? Yellowjackets can be both By Dean Fosdick Associated Press

Yellowjackets play a supportive role in gardening but can be dangerous around families and pets. People sensitive to bee venom should be especially careful from August through October, when yellowjacket numbers peak. They attack when threatened, and are known to crash cookouts too. “Yellowjackets, hornets and paper wasps are all beneficial predators of soft-bodied insects such as caterpillars, grubs and flies,” said Heather Stoven, a horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension Service. “However, yellowjackets will often begin to scavenge late in the summer into fall as their typical food sources often become more limited. “They begin to look for carrion (think your hamburger at a picnic) as well as sugary foods … which can lead to increased negative encounters,” Stoven said. Yellowjackets deliver the insects and food they forage to the young in their nests, while nourishing themselves on nectar from flowers. That makes them inadvertent pollinators, although they aren’t as efficient as honeybees since their shiny bodies have little body hair where pollen can collect for transfer from plant to plant, Stoven said. Yellowjackets typically live in underground burrows, although some species build paper nests elsewhere. “Their nests are usually small and placed under protective overhangs on houses and garages,” said James Dill, a pest management specialist with University of Maine Extension. “Where you run into a problem is when you’re mowing the lawn and come across a ground nest. You don’t usually see those until it’s too late. Disturb those nests and they react terribly.” Yellowjackets are drawn to food

and water, the latter particularly during droughts. “Yards contain all kinds of potential food sources such as fallen fruits, which provide sugars, garbage, pet food and human food,” Stoven said. It’s best to remove nests found in high-traffic areas, but do so carefully, she said. Probably the smartest option is calling in an exterminator. If you do want to take on the job yourself, then use quick-acting, killon-contact insecticides labeled for yellowjackets that allow treatment from safe distances when aimed at nest entrances, Stoven said. Apply the insecticide when it’s cool, and avoid using a flashlight, since wasps are attracted to light. “Wear protective clothing that covers your skin,” Stoven said. “If a nest is in a location that can be avoided, it could potentially be left undisturbed. The queen and workers will die off when cold weather arrives.” Traps, commercial or homemade, are another kind of management tool, although they’re effective only in small areas and don’t impact the nests where queens produce colonies sized anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 wasps, said Susan Jones, a professor of entomology at The Ohio State University. “Certain yellowjackets have been known to fly from 300 to 1,000 yards from their nest in search of food,” Jones said. “Traps will not rapidly knock down yellowjacket populations. For effective use at outdoor events, traps should be placed out two or more days prior to the event.” Firewood piles also are frequent gathering places for yellowjackets, since they continue collecting nest material through summer, Dill said. “They like split wood, not the bark,” he said. “Keep the piles covered, which also keeps the wood nice and dry.”

Spicy diet linked to dementia, study says By Najja Parker The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Do you add hot sauce to many of your favorite dishes? Beware, because a spicy diet could raise your dementia risk. Researchers from the University of South Australia recently conducted a study, published in the Nutrients journal, to explore

the association between chili intake and cognitive function. To do so, they examined 4,582 Chinese adults aged 55 and older for 15 years. The subjects recorded their food intake and underwent cognitive screen tests throughout the assessment. After analyzing the results, the team found those who ate more than 50 grams of chili a day had a faster

cognitive decline, compared to those who consumed fewer than 50 grams of chili daily. Fifty grams of chili is equivalent to about three to four tablespoons of dried chili peppers. Those who had more than 50 grams of the spice a day almost had double the risk of memory decline and poor cognition, and the decline was even more significant for slim participants.

“Chili consumption was found to be beneficial for body weight and blood pressure in our previous studies. However, in this study, we found adverse effects on cognition among older adults,” lead author Zumin Shi said in a statement. Chili is one of the most commonly used spices in the world, but it’s particularly more popular in Asia,

according to the study. It’s uncommon to consume more than 50 grams of chili daily in Western countries. However, “in certain regions of China, such as Sichuan and Hunan, almost one in three adults consume spicy food every day,” co-author Ming Li said. The scientists revealed those who ate lots of chili had a lower income and

body mass index and were more physically active than those who didn’t consume as much chili. They also noted people with a normal body weight may be more sensitive to chili intake than overweight individuals. The team now hopes to continue their studies to determine if reducing chili intake can lower dementia risk.

The top 9 grilling mistakes and how to fix them By Elizabeth Karmel Associated Press

I love to grill, and barbecue, and I have devoted my career to outdoor cooking for more than two decades. In that time, I’ve seen a lot of mistakes and people tend to make them over and over. So I put together a list of the biggest grilling don’ts and how to avoid them. Print this list and refer it the next time you get ready to grill!

NEVER OIL THE GRILL any people oil the cooking grates — big blunder! Follow my mantra: “Oil the food, not the grates!” If you brush oil on hot cooking grates (and a lit grill), you run the risk of a big flareup. The oil that you have brushed on will instantly burn leaving a sticky residue that will “glue” your food to the grates, making it stick, break apart and dry out—like dehydrating food. If you oil the food, it will stay juicy, promote caramelization—those great grill marks! And help to prevent “stickage.”

DON’T PUT FOOD ON A COLD GRILL Always preheat a gas grill with all burners on high or wait until charcoal briquettes are covered with a white-gray ash. Preheating also burns off residue and makes it easier to clean the grill. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t ever need to cook on a grill that is hotter than 550 F. The hotter the grill, the more likely you will burn the outside of the food before the inside is cooked.

CLEAN THAT DIRTY GRILL An outdoor grill is like a cast-iron skillet. It gets better and better the more you use it, but you do need to clean it every time you use it. Clean the grill grates twice every cook-out with a stiff metal bristle grill cleaning brush—before and after you cook. If you do this, it will never be a big job to clean your grill. If you don’t have a grill cleaning brush, crumble a ball of heavyduty aluminum foil and hold it in a pair of 12-inch

locking chef tongs to use to clean the grill.

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DIRECT AND INDIRECT HEAT The most frequent mistake is to choose the wrong cooking method. To be a good griller, you must know the difference between direct, indirect or combo grilling and when to use them. Direct grilling means that the food is set directly over the heat source — similar to broiling in your oven. Indirect grilling means that the heat is on either side of the food and the burners are turned off under the food — similar to roasting and baking in your oven. Combo grilling means that you sear the food over direct heat (i.e., to sear a tenderloin, or large steak) before moving it to indirect heat to finish the cooking process. Remember this general rule of thumb: If the food takes less than 20 minutes to cook, use the DIRECT METHOD. If the food takes more than 20 minutes to cook, use the INDIRECT METHOD.

THE RIGHT WAY TO DEAL WITH FLARE-UPS Never use a water bottle to extinguish a flare-up. Spraying water on a hot fire can produce steam vapours which may cause severe burns. The water can also crack the porcelain-enamel finish, resulting in damage to your grill. Fire loves oxygen, so cook with the lid down and don’t peek. Repeatedly lifting the lid to “peek” and check the food while it’s cooking lengthens cooking time. If you have a fullon fire, turn all the burners off, remove the food and extinguish the flames with kosher salt or baking soda. In a worst-case scenario, use a fire extinguisher but know that it will ruin your grill.

AVOID FREQUENT FLIPPING If you are cooking food by the direct method (hamburgers, hot dogs, boneless chicken breasts, small steaks, vegetables, etc), flip only once halfway through the cooking time. All protein will stick to the grates

as soon as it makes contact with the hot grill grates. As it cooks, it will naturally release itself, and that is when you can turn it over with a pair of tongs. Just remember to oil the food, not the grates!

DODGE CROSSCONTAMINATION One of the most common mistakes backyard cooks make is using the same tongs for raw and cooked foods. This creates cross-contamination and can result in food-borne illness. It’s easy to fix this problem. I have been colour-coding my 12-inch locking chef tongs with red and green duct tape for as long as I have been grilling. The different colours help me to remember which pair of tongs I used for raw food (red), like chicken, and which are safe to use for the cooked food (green). And remember to use a separate clean platter for your cooked food, too.

DON’T SAUCE TOO SOON If I had a dime for every time I saw someone pour thick sweet barbecue sauce on bone-in-chicken pieces

or a whole rack of ribs while they were raw, I would be a very wealthy griller! All barbecue sauces have a lot of sugar in them and sugar burns very quickly. Almost always burning the outside of the food before the inside cooks. Generally I only brush food with sauce during the final 10-15 minutes of cooking time. With ribs that cook 2-3 hours, I will brush with a diluted sauce (1/2 beer and 1/2 sauce) for the final 30 minutes of cooking time.

RESIST TESTING FOR DONENESS BY CUTTING. Cutting your food to test for doneness is another common way people bungle their food. When you cut any protein, you are letting the precious juices escape and if the food is under-cooked, the area where it was cut will be over-cooked when you put it back on the grill. Use an instant-read meat thermometer to test for doneness, and always let your food rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into it.

First CRISPR study inside the body to start in US By Marilynn Marchione AP Chief Medical Writer

Patients are about to be enrolled in the first study to test a gene-editing technique known as CRISPR inside the body to try to cure an inherited form of blindness. People with the disease have normal eyes but lack a gene that converts light into signals to the brain that enable sight. The experimental

treatment aims to supply kids and adults with a healthy version of the gene they lack, using a tool that cuts or “edits” DNA in a specific spot. It’s intended as a onetime treatment that permanently alters the person’s native DNA. Two companies, Editas Medicine and Allergan, will test this in up to 18 people around the United States, including Massachusetts Eye and Ear in Boston, starting

this fall. This gene editing in people after birth is different from the controversial work a Chinese scientist did last year — altering the DNA of embryos at conception in a way that can pass the changes to future generations. The DNA changes in adults that the new study aims to make will not be inherited by any offspring. Only one other company, Sangamo Therapeutics, has

tried gene editing inside the body, to treat metabolic diseases using a tool called zinc fingers. CRISPR has captivated scientists because it’s a very simple way to do gene editing, although it’s so new that its risks are not fully known. But researchers believe it has great potential to cure or treat many diseases caused by gene flaws that have no good treatments now. The blindness study is

for people with one form of Leber congenital amaurosis. It’s the most common cause of inherited childhood blindness, occurring in about 2 to 3 of every 100,000 births. People often see only bright light and blurry shapes and eventually can lose all sight. Parents are carriers of the flawed gene and it can lurk undetected for generations, suddenly emerging when an unlucky combination gives a child two copies

of it. A gene therapy called Luxturna already is sold for other forms of the disease, and the treatment is similar — a modified virus is used to carry the replacement gene into cells in the retina in the back of the eye. It’s delivered as an injection during a brief surgery. The new study will test children at least 3 years old and adults with a range of vision.

costs medication costs faced by seniors to $3,100, starting in 2022. Currently there is no cap, and some Medicare recipients face copays rivaling a mortgage payment. It would also require drug companies to pay rebates to Medicare if they raise prices faster than inflation. Those inflation rebates are a problem for some Republican senators, who see them as a pathway to government price controls. The legislation reflects a compromise between Finance Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and the panel’s senior Democrat, Ron Wyden of Oregon. The powerful pharmaceutical lobby is opposed, and executives met Wednesday night with President Donald Trump to air their concerns. There were no signs Thursday that Trump’s position had shifted. “The White House applauds the Senate Finance Committee for passing this important piece of legislation,” said spokesman Judd Deere. During its debate, the committee defeated an amendment by Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., that would have stripped the inflation rebates from the bill. The Congressional Budget Office told senators that its experts don’t

consider the bill’s inflation penalties to be a form of price controls, but an incentive for manufacturers to exercise restraint in pricing. Wyden called it a “price hike penalty” that protects taxpayers who subsidize the cost of Medicare’s prescription plan. “The cap does not set prices, it limits subsidies,” he said. But opponents said they weren’t dropping their efforts. Also defeated was an amendment by Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., that would have accomplished a longsought goal of her party by authorizing Medicare to directly negotiate prices with drugmakers. That’s a nonstarter for market-oriented Republicans, although Trump as a candidate had embraced it. Grassley and Wyden portrayed their legislation as a middle ground that gives each party something and can ultimately pass Congress and be signed by Trump. Drug prices are a top concern for people with health insurance and after years of handwringing politicians are under pressure to deliver results ahead of the 2020 elections. “This is a bipartisan bill and you get nothing done in the United States Senate

without bipartisanship,” said Grassley. He’s also reminding Republicans that his legislation has Trump’s support and that the president once had backed Medicare negotiating authority. Grassley raised the specter that Trump could revert to that position and cut a deal with Democrats if Senate Republicans try to block his drive to lower drug costs. Grassley said preliminary budget estimates show the legislation would save the Medicare program $85 billion over 10 years, while seniors would save $27 billion in out-of-pocket costs over the same period, and $5 billion from slightly lower premiums. The government also would save $15 billion from projected Medicaid costs. The budget office said people with private insurance should also see some savings. Finance is the third Senate committee to pass legislation addressing health care costs this year, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky may package the bills together for floor debate this fall. Meanwhile, the House is also expected to move health care legislation, including authority for Medicare to negotiate drug prices.

Mini Fact:

A Sea of Grass

Prairie managers set grasses on fire to control the burn and make the soil more fertile. Bison were once hunted almost to extinction. This herd grazes on the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in Kansas.

Lost in the grass

When settlers reached the prairies in midsummer, grasses could be 12 feet high. If cattle strayed, the only way to find them was to stand on top of a horse and search for something moving in the grass. Pioneers, A fawn hides among the tallgrass at Pipestone National especially Monument in Minnesota. children, had to stay close to the wagon when they walked. If they wandered too far, they could get lost. Today, climate conditions have changed, and the grasses usually grow to about 6 feet high — still high enough to get lost in.

A special system

Prairies are one of the most special ecosystems, or habitats, in the world. They have a wide variety of plants and animals. Many experts believe the only ecosystem with more variety is the rainforest in Brazil. The diversity, or variety, in the prairie system helps to keep it healthy. Weather can range from very hot to very cold. Drought, tornadoes and blizzards also strike in the prairie.

Prairie animals

Types of prairies

There are three types of prairies: tallgrass, mixed grass and shortgrass. The tallgrass prairie gets the most rain; the shortgrass gets the least. The mixed-grass prairie falls in between.

When American settlers headed west, they came upon a great area covered with tall grasses. There were almost no trees or bushes. The first Europeans to explore this grassy area named it “prairie,” from the French word for meadow. Constant wind made the grasses sway like the waves of the sea. Early settlers often called the prairie “a sea of grass.” They called their covered wagons “prairie schooners.” (A schooner is a sailing ship.)

Prairie plants

Plants growing in the prairie have developed thinner leaves than most other plants. That way they lose less moisture from evaporation. Prairie plants also may have hairlike growths on their leaves. Coneflowers The hair helps capture the morning dew. The plants on prairies have extra-long roots. Some can go as deep as 20 feet.

About 300 species, or types, of birds, about 80 species of mammals and hundreds of species of insects live in the prairie. Because there are so few trees, birds such as prairie chickens build their nests on the ground, hidden by the tall grasses. Small mammals such as prairie dogs and badgers make homes by tunneling underground. They run into their burrows to escape predators, grass fires or heat. Large mammals, such as bison, graze on the tall grasses, moving from place to place. Before settlers arrived, the American elk grazed on the tallgrass prairie. The destruction of their habitat has pushed most of them out of the prairies and into mountain areas.

Cook’s Corner

Human activities have caused almost 600 plant species to go extinct over the past 250 years, according to scientists from Britain’s Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew and Sweden’s Stockholm University. The loss is occurring up to 500 times faster than the rate plants would naturally disappear. Their research found that plants have gone extinct twice as fast as birds, mammals and amphibians since 1753. The loss has been highest on islands, in the tropics and in regions with a Mediterranean climate. adapted with permission from Earthweek.com

Jaqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, July 28, 2019: This year, you open up to many new opportunities. In the process, keep your eye on your spending, as you could go overboard with ease. If single, you will probably meet someone who makes your heart flutter this coming year. If you’re attached, the sensitivity you show your mate will be returned. Your bond heats up even more. GEMINI loves to joke with you. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You have an abundance of energy, which if misplaced could cause a problem. Decide what you really want to do, keeping in mind that if you can include some physical activity, all the better. A game of racquetball would be beneficial. Tonight: Time for a sensitive, deep conversation.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You always seem to be in control; however you might have noticed that tendency appearing less and less of late. Use caution with an angry elder or authority figure. A backfire could be costly. Tonight: Be where you can hear great music.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH You wake up knowing that the world is your oyster. You start making calls and confirming plans with a great deal of confidence. Use care while you run around today, as you could accidentally be misunderstood. Confirm what you hear before acting on it. Tonight: Doing your thing.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You often deal with your moody bouts by shopping or indulging in some sort of excess or a favorite pastime. You could get into whatever you are doing while working through some anger. Touch base with an older relative. Tonight: As you like it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH You might invite friends to join you to watch a fun softball game, go fishing or take part in any favorite summer pastime. Your high energy allows you to do more than many of your friends. Be aware that they may be dragging somewhat late in the day. Tonight: Where your friends can be found.

ner together at a restaurant. After the waiter brought our meal to the table, my adult nephew asked all 10 of us to pause before eating while he “offered thanks” for the meal. Most of the family is religious and may not have minded doing it even though they never do it themselves in public. However, some of us are not religious and never pray before meals, something everyone there has known for decades. If we gather at someone’s house, we follow the custom of the host and there’s no objection, but I think it’s presumptuous to insist on making everyone wait while they perform this ritual in public. No one will mind you praying silently to yourself, but please be considerate of others

and refrain from turning every gathering into your personal prayer meeting. — GODLESS IN TEXAS DEAR GODLESS: Unless your nephew was delivering a sermon and you were experiencing symptoms of hypoglycemia, I don’t think it was a great imposition to wait until he said the blessing. That said, because you felt imposed upon, say something to your nephew -- or, because you know that he does this, pass on the next dinner invitation. DEAR ABBY: I just recently had my heart broken. After this girl left me, I started talking to some other girls I like, and they like me back. The problem is, I want to date these girls, but I

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Be willing to take a stand. You could feel as if someone is pushing you too hard. You might take a stand and demonstrate your independence. However, think about this uncomfortable situation and recognize where it stemmed from. It would serve you well to work it through. Tonight: A must appearance.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Reach out for a key friend at a distance. As you weigh the pros and cons of a particular matter, touch base with this person. You gain a new perspective as a result. Tonight: Accept an invitation where you can visit with friends.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH One-on-one relating draws a partner much closer than you thought possible. You might want to share some information that until now you haven’t. Plan a day together with a leisurely meal -- just the two of you. Tonight: How about a jam session?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Defer to a partner or several friends who have strong opinions about what might be best to do. For once, you enjoy lying back and letting others make decisions. The nature of the people involved promises a good time. Tonight: Making the most out of the moment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Do not push yourself too hard. Your might have less energy than you think. A loved one might want to have an important discussion or indulge in a favorite physical sport. Your instincts remain excellent. Do take a much-needed nap or some personal time. Tonight: Wherever the party is.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You have strong instincts as to where to go to find like souls, all having a great time. The child within you comes out, and you join in. Whether at an amusement park or at a favorite pool or lake, you relax. Tonight: Count your change carefully.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Accept an invitation to join a family member or friend at a favorite spot, which could be at this person’s home. You might end up being far more active than you imagined. Tonight: Try to unwind early, if possible!

DEAR FRUSTRATED FATHER: You and your ex-wife may be divorced, but you need to be on the same page when it comes to parenting. Ask her if she allows clothing and towels to be left on the floor of Katie’s room and, if not, how she handles it. Even if it doesn’t bother your ex, you should still remind your daughter that when she gets to college, she’ll be a more desirable roommate if she keeps her living quarters tidy, and that it would be better for her to acquire the habit now. Be sure she knows you are saying it to help her, not to be an ogre. It’s your house, and you should be making the rules.

2019 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

DEAR ABBY: My 16-yearold daughter, “Katie,” leaves her nice clothes, wet towels and debris strewn around her room. She stays with me half the time, and her mother the other half. She’s involved in activities and Advanced Placement courses in school, so when she gets home, she studies or needs to sleep. I remind her to pick her things up off the floor, but she rarely does it. I keep going back and forth on the correct way to handle this. Should I just leave them and allow Katie to live in a mess until she gets sick of it, or straighten up ahead of time so when she comes over her room is tidy, and maybe she’ll realize it’s how the place should always look? She’s a sweet, loving and considerate

This year, you often pull back and observe what’s going on around you. You develop this habit because you often need to be in sync with certain people. If single, you’re likely to meet someone who could be emotionally unavailable. Try not to get involved. You’ll want a deeper bond. If you’re attached, you and your partner benefit from frequent weekends away. Your connection can only grow stronger and bring you closer. CANCER seems to undermine you at times.
