Board votes to consolidate UA system By Peter Segall Juneau Empire

The University of Alaska Board of Regents voted to begin a plan to move the University of Alaska towards a single accreditation model. The Board met in Anchorage Tuesday to discuss what the future of the university would look like, joined by the chancellors of the three universities, students and representatives from the Office of Management and Budget. After nearly six hours of deliberation, the Regents voted 8-3 to authorize University of Alaska President Jim Johnsen to begin creating a plan to convert the

university to a single accreditation model. Johnsen said that in his

view, “the house is on fire,” due to state budget cuts and when looking to re-

model, you have to know how many rooms you can afford. Examples of other single accreditation models include the University of Washington, Pennsylvania State University and Kent State University. The single accreditation model, according to a presentation created by university officials, provides the advantage of directing more resources to academics and less to administration. Research institutes would be able to operate with a systemwide scope. The motion passed by the Board of Regents authorized Johnsen, with the help of the subcommittee,

to create an alternative administrative structure, reduce duplicative services and prepare a plan to move to a single accreditation university and to consult with student representatives. However, the system runs the risks of losing differentiation between the various locations and diminishing connections with local communities. One major reason for arriving at this decision was accreditation. If UA had kept its current structure and implemented cuts across the system, the financial viability of an individual location could See system, Page A3

EPA withdraws proposed mining restrictions JUNEAU — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has withdrawn proposed Obama-era restrictions on mining activity in Alaska’s Bristol Bay region, angering opponents of the Pebble Mine project. EPA says the proposed restrictions were based on hypothetical scenarios and are outdated now that the Pebble Limited Partnership has submitted project plans. The agency says other processes are better suited for working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as the corps seeks to finalize an environmental review of the project. A regional EPA official earlier this month said the corps’ draft review likely underestimates impacts the project could have on fish and other resources. Bristol Bay is home to a major salmon fishery. Critics of the mine see the decision as a step backward. The Pebble partnership’s CEO hailed EPA’s action.

Villages get $5M to stem violence By Rachel D’Oro Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — Rural Alaska Native villages will receive nearly $5 million from the U.S. Justice Department to combat numerous public safety problems, including no law enforcement presence in some communities, the agency announced Tuesday. The award comes nearly two months after Attorney General William Barr met with tribal representatives who told him about slow emergency responses by authorities, violence against women and abuse of alcohol and drugs, including opioids, in remote communities. The money is for hiring additional village and tribal officers and to pay

for equipment and training. The grant funding couldn’t come at a more crucial time for Sharon Williams, the tribal administrator in the southwest Alaska village of Napaskiak, one of three communities Barr visited in May. The Yup’ik community of 450 is just 7 miles from the hub town of Bethel, whose voters lifted a decades-long ban on alcohol sales in recent years. Napaskiak and other villages ban alcohol, but Williams said the new supply of readily available booze purchased nearby is bringing more alcohol-related problems to the village, including many intoxicated people boating on the Kuskokwim River. Since 2016, there have been 11 alcohol deaths in Napaskiak alone, including a 14-year-old boy who

died of alcohol poisoning in February, Williams said. The community currently has four village and tribal police, but sometimes there are none because of sometimes high turnovers, she said. “There’s more public safety needed because there’s so many intoxicated people,” she said in a phone interview. Williams said she gave Barr a tour of the community during his hours-long visit in May. He also visited Bethel and the rural community of Nenana. “He was very attentive,” Williams said. “He was just soaking everything in.” In June, Barr declared a law enforcement emergency in Alaska.

No further growth expected for Swan Lake Fire; local team to take control By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

No increase in fire activity is expected for the Swan Lake Fire for the remainder of the season, the Eastern Area Incident Management Team said in an update Tuesday. The team, which has been monitoring the Swan Lake Fire, has completed 80% of its objectives as of Tuesday, and is transitioning control to a local Alaska Interagency Management Team, which will continue repair work and monitor the wildfire for any significant change in activity. This week, crews are using helicopters to remove hoses, pumps,

sprinklers and other equipment from remote locations in and around the fire area. This work is expected to be finished in the next few days. The majority of suppression repair work, including chipping brush piles and repairing containment lines, has already been completed. Within the last week the fire area received more than 2 inches of rain, which saturated the upper layers of duff on the forest floor. According to Tuesday’s update, significant drying would have to occur before any increase in fire activity could take place. Some areas within the fire’s perimeter are expected to continue smoldering

into the foreseeable future, but the fire has not experienced any growth in acreage since July 22. Fire managers will continue to monitor the area by air until they are certain it poses no danger to any infrastructure. As of Monday, the Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) in the area has been lifted. Construction zones, fog, and smoke along the Sterling highway could continue to cause delays in traffic, and motorists can find current road conditions at Although the management team will no longer be releasing daily updates, people can still call 208-391-3488 with any questions regarding the Swan Lake Fire.

Colorado soul band to headline this week’s music in the park By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Where last week was all about rock ’n’ roll, this week’s concert in the park will feature a whole lot of soul. The Levitt AMP Soldotna Music Series — which has hosted a free concert at Soldotna Creek Park every Wednesday since the start of summer — will have its ninth concert headlined by Colorado-based soul band The Burroughs. The Burroughs are a nine-person soul group that formed in 2013 and, according to their website, play music that is “steeped in classical soul standards and outfitted with modern flair.” Front man Johnny Burroughs is a licensed minister and music pastor

The declaration cleared the way for the Justice Department to award more than $10 million to fight crime in rural Alaska communities. That includes the award announced Tuesday. Julie Kitka, president of the Alaska Federation of Natives, praised the emergency declaration and the funding. She said her group has been talking with Justice Department officials, as well as Department of Interior representatives, to look for possible solutions. “The attention to what needs to happen as far as women, the children, men that are living in all our rural communities has to be a priority,” she said. “And we really appreciate the Department of Justice’s attention to that.” During Barr’s visit, tribal representatives told him communities with no police presence often must wait long stretches before state troopers can arrive to investigate crimes. Often, it can take troopers hours to reach a village given the sheer vastness of the nation’s largest

who uses his church experience to lift spirits and energize the audience with his onstage performance. Burroughs’ backing band is comprised of a four-piece horn section and a fourpiece rhythm section, and their live performances are known for including “soaring solos, funky grooves and choreographed dancing.” The Burroughs’ latest full-length studio album, “Got to Feel” was released in January of 2018. Opening for the Burroughs is a newly formed local band, The Caper, who will be making their Soldotna Music Series debut. Prior to the bands hitting the stage at 6 p.m., there will be a lawn activity sponsored by Peninsula Pumping, in which kids will have

the opportunity to make their own maracas. In addition, at 5:30 p.m., incoming Soldotna Rotary president Lara McGinnis will be publicly unveiling three new murals that are on display at Soldotna Creek Park. These murals were made by art students at Kenai Peninsula College studying under Professor Cam Choy. The pieces are the result of a collaboration between the city of Soldotna, KPC, the Kenai River Rotary Club and the Soldotna Rotary Club. For more information about the event, including a map showing which nearby businesses allow parking, visit the Levitt AMP Soldotna Music Series Facebook Page.

State authorities handle criminal investigations in more than 200 Alaska Native villages. A 2013 federal report found that at least 75 Alaska Native communities had no law enforcement presence. Tribal leaders have spoken candidly about barriers that victims face in seeking justice, saying some sexual assault victims must take boats or planes to urban areas to get medical

forensic exams. Barr’s visit and funding came as Congress and advocates have renewed a focus on violence against Native American and Alaska Native women. Federal statistics show they are victims of violence at astonishing rates. The most recent numbers show that more than half have faced sexual and domestic violence at some point in their lives.

Edwin F. Edelman Jr.

Longtime Alaskan Jack W. Lawson, 88, passed away Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at home in Nikiski from heart failure. A private family committal service was held at Ft. Richardson National Cemetery. Jack was born Feb. 17, 1931 in Van Buren, Ark. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force on Apr. 8, 1948 and served until his honorable discharge on Apr. 7, 1957. Jack came to Alaska prior to Statehood with the Air Force. His work in military radio operations took him all over the state. Ultimately falling in love with Alaska, he decided to make it his home and started his family here. Jack moved to Cantwell in the early 1970s, where he built the Jack River Inn/Reindeer Mountain Lodge. Later, around the time of the Intertie, he bought the Lodge and operated it until his wife, Jan’s, death in 2006. Jack was a small aircraft pilot and loved flying. Always an adventure seeker, Jack is known to have flown his plane under the Hurricane Bridge not long after it was built. Since his wife’s death, Jack has lived full-time with his daughter, Kelly. Though Jack suffered from Parkinson’s Disease for many many years, he remained a strong, determined and loving man until the end of his life. Jack’s wish was to die with dignity in his own home and his wish was honored. Jack passed away after a beautiful evening with friends at his home with his daughter, Kelly by his side. Jack will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Jack was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Shirley “Jan” Lawson, and daughter, Winnie Lou Lawson Tirmenstein. He is survived by his daughter, Kelly J. Lawson of Kenai; son, Frederick Lawson of Soldotna; granddaughter, Sara Tirmenstein of Soldotna; great-granddaughter, Kyleigh Gaffney of Soldotna; daughter, Angie Sawzak and husband, Brant, and their children, all of Oregon; sister, Susie Scott and husband, Ron; niece, Katy Wade; aunt, Billie Gregory, and cousin, Ron Gregory and his wife, Colleen, all of California. Rather than flowers, the family would like memorial donations sent to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research ( Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.

The City of Whittier declared a state of emergency following the explosion on the fishing vessel Alaganik. The U.S. Coast Guard rescued one person but eventually suspended its search for a 49-year-old man. City Manager Jim Hunt says the dock’s fishing operations are back to “about 95%, almost 100%.” Hunt says a salvage company has been hired to raise the Alaganik within the next two weeks.

be threatened and there could be a loss of accreditation, according to a presentation from university officials. University officials have been in discussion with the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit universities in several western states. In a letter to the Board of Regents, the Northwest Commission said that it was eager to work with the State of Alaska to find the best path forward and maintain educational standards for Alaska’s students. In conversations with the commission, Johnsen was told that the most efficient way forward was to use one of the state’s current university’s accreditation as a “scaffold,” under which other units could be brought. This option would be far more cost effective that attempting to create a whole new accreditation or risking the accreditation of current universities. The single UA model would reduce administrative overhead by creating one office for the entire

Forcing their hand The regents have been considering three alternative structures for the university system since the announcement of Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s line-item vetoes of state budget items in early July. The first of those options, leaving the university system as is but with proportional cuts made across each institution, didn’t gain much traction with the regents. That model, while retaining a familiar structure and maintains local service missions, risks the financial viability and accreditation of each university. Furthermore that option retained the high administrative costs that are a significant drain on the university budget. A slideshow presentation of the risks and benefits of each option, as well as other financial information can be found online. Office of Management and Budget Policy Direc-

ANCHORAGE — Authorities in Alaska are investigating the deaths of three kayakers whose bodies were found in the water of a glacier. Officials in the port town of Valdez say the kayakers were found dead near the toe of Valdez Glacier. City spokeswoman Sheri Pierce says responders recovered the bodies around 2 p.m., about four hours after a caller reported what appeared to be two deceased people.

Coast Guard officials were scheduled to meet in Anchorage Monday with agencies that responded to the explosion.

tor Mike Barnhill gave a presentation to the board following a brief phone call from the governor. The governor said during his phone call that as a graduate of the University of Alaska he has nothing but respect for UA. But the state has a fiscal problem, Dunleavy said. “Some of us are living with the belief that oil is still $84 a barrel,” he said. The university had been the beneficiary of extensive funding over the years but the university’s “outcomes” haven’t always been what they should be, the governor said. Dunleavy said that he had been in conversation with university leaders over the past several weeks about how to achieve a step-down approach that can get the university, “where it needs to be, funding wise.”

Pierce says the bodies were not immediately identified. The glacier is calving, or shedding ice, which Pierce says slowed responders in reaching the bodies. She says it’s too early to say what might have led to the deaths. She says foul play is not suspected at this time.

NTSB: Pilot safely evacuated passengers from burning plane BETHEL — Federal investigators credit a pilot with safely evacuating passengers before flames consumed an Alaska commuter plane after it crashed, a report said.

OMB weighs in Using information provided to him by university officials, Barnhill provided a line-item list of university expenses both statewide and at each individual unit. He said that administrative costs accounted for roughly 45% of the university’s budget. Barnhill acknowledged there are reasons behind the significant differences in university administration costs but that the University of Alaska Fairbanks was the largest driver of administrative overhead. Barnhill suggested that universities consider other revenue sources besides the state for funding. He noted that the research conducted at UAF was indeed important and suggested that other beneficiaries of that research, perhaps in the private sector, be reached out to as a source of funding.

The National Transportation Safety Board said the pilot spotted the flames and helped five passengers get clear of the crashed airplane at the Bethel airport July 8, The Anchorage Daily News reported Monday. Authorities have not identified the pilot or the three adults and two children onboard. Three people were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The Grant Aviation pilot is recovering from a severely sprained collarbone, said company President and CEO Rob Kelley. The pilot was attempting to land the Cessna 208B aircraft at the end of the flight from Newtok to the Bethel airport about 400 miles west of Anchorage. — Associated Press

Board of Regents Chair John Davies said that UA had been looking at outside sources of revenue including alumni donations and philanthropic efforts. He was skeptical of the thought that those sources could provide the same level of funding as state support. Davies called the reduction in research money “reckless,” and said that the university wasn’t, “going to run bake sales,” to fund research. While there was acknowledgement amongst the Regents that the university was a vital asset for the state, it was also understood that there was no easy path forward. The analogy that “the house is on fire,” was brought up many times.

It was made clear during this and previous discussions on the university’s budget that any delay in action regarding financials would cause funds to run out even faster. When the board finally made its decision there were eight yeas and three nays. It was noted that Johnsen had been authorized to make a plan, not to take any drastic action just yet. A subcommittee was created to act as a “sounding board” for the president as he crafted his plan. Included in the motion was the stipulation that Johnsen consult with representatives of the student body. Johnsen will bring his plan before the Board of Regents at a meeting in September.

What others say

Partisan divides obscuring Robert Mueller’s message


obert Mueller is that rare political animal who tells the world what he’s going to do, and then actually does it. For weeks, Mueller, the man appointed as special counsel to investigate allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and any possible links to the Trump ultimately victorious campaign, had said that when he testifies before Congressional committees, he’ll confirm what’s in the 448-page report he’s already released, he’ll decline to answer questions about ongoing investigations and he’ll refuse to offer any further conclusions about his two-year probe. Last Wednesday, given the opportunity to talk to two House committees, that’s exactly what he did. No surprises, no smoking gun, to exculpatory revelations — The Russians interfered; the evidence didn’t prove a link to the Trump campaign; the president’s subsequent actions might be considered obstruction of justice, but that’s not for him to decide. The ball, Mueller wrote in the report and said again on Wednesday, is in Congress’ court. As much as Democrats wanted the modern equivalent of the damning Watergate tapes, and as much as Republicans wanted Mueller to enable them to close the door on the “Russia witch hunt,” Forget about neither got their wish. Impeachment Mueller’s halting of the president is no and dull delivery. closer — nor farther away — than before ...Remember that this Mueller spoke. So what was the big investigation found deal? that a hostile foreign We can say that it is not a big deal that power attempted to Mueller’s testimony influence the outcome wasn’t flashy or engrossing, despite of an American what the talking presidential election, heads on the various networks had and that they can and to say. Mueller’s not an actor, and his will try it again. appearance was not a dramatization of his report. For those who hoped “the movie would be better than the book” had already missed the point. We can also say that it’s not a big deal that Mueller seemed tired as he testified. The critique of his demeanor implied that the lifelong public servant had lost a step or two, that he’s a shadow of the hardworking straight arrow everyone remembers. Those focusing on his style also missed the point. Even those on the left clamoring for impeachment and those on the right looking for closure missed the point. The point that everyone should get — Democrats, Republicans, progressives, conservatives, MAGAnauts and NeverTrumpers included — was summed up in this exchange between Mueller and Rep. Will Hurd, a Republican from Texas: Hurd: “In your investigation, did you think that this was a single attempt by the Russians to be involved in our election or did you find that evidence to suggest that they will try to do this again?” Mueller: “It was not a single attempt, and they’re doing it as we sit here. And they expect to do it during the next campaign.” How’s that for riveting drama? Forget about Mueller’s halting and dull delivery. Forget about grandstanding members of Congress. Forget the president’s protestations of how unfairly he’s been treated. Remember that this investigation found that a hostile foreign power attempted to influence the outcome of an American presidential election, and that they can and will try it again. “They’re doing it as we sit here.” Let that be what Americans remember about Robert Mueller’s Wednesday testimony. The real enemy isn’t across the aisle in Congress, or the person with an opinion in conflict with yours. The real enemy is a foreign government bent on disrupting our democracy. — Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, July 29

DOA open to a fair, legal labor agreement

Serving the Kenai Peninsula since 1970 Jeff Hayden Publisher ERIN THOMPSON. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Editor RANDI KEATON . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Circulation Director FRANK GOLDTHWAITE. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Production Manager



he Department of Administration (DOA), of which I serve as commissioner, is responsible for negotiating state worker union contracts. We take that responsibility very seriously. Our goal is to negotiate fair labor contracts that help our State of Alaska employees build better lives for themselves, while also serving the best interests of their fellow Alaskans. Our team at the DOA, and those that preceded this administration, have made every effort to address the IBU’s demands without further compounding our state’s ballooning deficit. In fact, since December 2016, the State has met with IBU representatives over 40 times. We believe it would be a dereliction of our duty, both to unions and Alaskans, for us to enter into a bargaining agreement that would benefit one union in the shortterm but would further imperil the well-being of all Alaskans (including the IBU) in the long-term. The State has faced several hurdles during negotiations with IBU representatives from California, including the IBU’s demands for wage increases at rates that are untenable in this fiscal climate and impermissible under Alaska law. The other Marine unions, whose members work alongside IBU employees, did not ask for such demands; they seem to better understand Alaska’s dire fiscal situation — and care about it! Labor unions are supposed to help their employees secure fair pay, not preferential pay. During 20 hours of mediation last weekend, IBU brought in negotiators from California who don’t seem to understand Alaska laws. They

repeatedly sent wage offers that are not legally permissible or feasible. Anyone who knows Alaska law and the legislative process would have known better. IBU has yet to give the State a proposal that is legally allowed. IBU notified the State it would strike over a provision regarding union dues payment and collection that conflicts with the free speech protections guaranteed to all IBU-represented employees by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. This is illegal. IBU’s illegal strike began based on demands that all nonresident employees receive the same salary value as Alaska employees. Alaska law (AS 23.40.210), however, requires that any agreement include a pay plan that provides for a cost-of-living differential (COLD) between the salaries paid to Alaska employees and nonresident employees. The IBU was demanding that the State accept this and violate the law. This is illegal. IBU amended these provisions after the State informed the union that these provisions would render its strike illegal. But amending those illegal provisions after the strike was announced does not magically erase the illegal basis for striking in the first place. Under law, the IBU is obligated to end the strike and reach a deal. The State has made numerous concessions to IBU, including four package proposals that granted some of IBU’s important requests, such as a three-year deal and a wage increase, but IBU refused to change its illegal offer. The State proposed IBU

employees contribute to their health care plan, but IBU agreed only if the State provided a “bonus” that covered the cost of premiums and paid members more than $700,000 extra for their trouble. That’s not a compromise. That’s an outrage! The State also offered the IBU an ability for employees to return to work, without disciplinary action for striking, while we continue to negotiate the contract so the employees would be able to make money. The IBU refused to sign it. Since the illegal strike began on Wednesday, July 24, the State of Alaska has lost nearly $3 million of revenue in AMHS passenger ticket refunds. Our coastal communities, businesses and citizens have incurred millions of dollars in costs related to loss of visitor traffic, alternative transportation, and unexpected lodging. The strike has shut down a major transportation artery in the height of tourist season. It has been the logistical equivalent of a heart attack to coastal Alaska. The damages suffered is already incalculable. We remain open to working with the IBU to reach an agreement that is lawful, good, and fair to employees and all Alaskans. We will not abandon our posts at the negotiating table until we reach a fair and fiscally responsible outcome. We sit ready to receive the first legally permissible offer IBU is ready to make. Kelly Tshibaka is the commissioner of the Department of Administration. Opinion articles and Letters to the Editor represent the view of the author, not the view of the Peninsula Clarion.

Thugs and leaders in Juneau


eal leaders herd cats and finish the job in 90 days. Cats will hiss at not getting all they want, but sessions will be finished with integrity. No one will be able to honestly complain that the leader pulled shenanigans, because all rules were followed. Thugs rule the Legislature with shenanigans and by force. Thugs don’t follow required House Rules during floor sessions. Thugs mute opposing views by adjourning floor sessions without giving them opportunity to speak. Sometimes, when a thug is outnumbered, he recesses and sneaks back secretly with an accomplice to officially adjourn. Not telling those who oppose about the meeting mutes them, because they could have overridden the adjournment. Thugs call in legal advisors to manipulate laws to suit their agenda. Leaders call them out when legal advisors say, “you don’t have to follow laws.” Thugs applaud the constitution being perverted, creating an illusion of statutory conflict. They use the illusion to bash legislators and the governor. Leaders see how the constitution and law work together and follow both. Thugs ignore laws when a governor calls special sessions in Wasilla, because they can’t face people who tell them truth. Thugs pervert the constitution to cover their own lawlessness. Leaders go to Wasilla, where the law tells them and stay

Thugs don’t negotiate. Not in 90 days, 120 days, in a special session, or in a second special session. Thugs are determined to get their way at any cost, even bankrupting the state — while trying to convince everyone it’s the right thing to do. there until directed lawfully to go somewhere else, even when they don’t want to be with thugs in Juneau. A leader allows legislators to work things out themselves, but brings them together when necessary. Then he steps back and gives them room to resolve issues, patiently offering to negotiate. Thugs don’t negotiate. Not in 90 days, 120 days, in a special session, or in a second special session. Thugs are determined to get their way at any cost, even bankrupting the state — while trying to convince everyone it’s the right thing to do. A leader sees danger in overspending and makes firm decisions to protect people from long-term consequences, even if it is painful at first. Leaders continually offer the hand of negotiation. Thugs have favorites. You know when you are one, because thugs will steal from every man, woman, and child in the state and give their money to you. Thugs call people’s requests

that laws be obeyed, selfish. Leaders insist on following the law, and denounce stealing from people. A thug promises not to steal the PFD from people, and call it theft when running for office. After getting elected they steal from those same people (hoping they won’t notice or will forget). Thugs kick leaders out of committees when they vote their constituents’ wishes rather than the wishes of thugs. Leaders allow legislators to represent their home districts. Thugs steal our future, while leaders see hope and opportunities and take steps in that direction, even under persecution from thugs, from thugs’ favorites, and a complicit media. Thugs rule the Legislature with shenanigans and force. Thank God for Gov. Dunleavy and faithful House Republicans!

Republicans take wait-and-see approach to Trump intel pick By Mary Clare Jalonick Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is joining many of his fellow Republicans in taking a wait-and-see approach to President Donald Trump’s nominee for national intelligence director, Rep. John Ratcliffe, even as critics assail his lack of qualifications for the job. McConnell said Tuesday that he looks forward to meeting with Ratcliffe and discussing his background. Democrats have criticized Trump’s selection of the Texas Republican, noting his lack of experience compared to those who have previously held the office. They say Ratcliffe, a vocal skeptic of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, has shown himself too partisan for a position that is designed to objectively oversee the nation’s intelligence agencies Trump did little to assuage concerns, saying of Ratcliffe on Tuesday: “I think we need somebody like that there. We need somebody strong that can really rein it in. Because, as I think you’ve all learned, the intelligence agencies have

run amok. They’ve run amok.” Ratcliffe if confirmed would replace Dan Coats, a former Indiana senator who had broad support in Congress and had repeatedly clashed with Trump. Trump said Coats is a good man, and that it was “confusion more than conflict” between them. Coats “made statements and they were a little confused,” Trump said, without naming what those statements were. McConnell, R-Ky., said that “generally speaking, I’d lean toward the president’s nominees.” But he declined to fully endorse Ratcliffe, who served as a mayor of a small Texas town and a U.S. attorney before being elected to Congress in 2014. McConnell’s comments come as several of his GOP colleagues, including some members of the Senate intelligence committee that will vote on the nomination, have said they didn’t know — or had never even heard of — the three-term congressman. Some have said they will have to find out more about Ratcliffe before deciding whether he’s the right replacement for Coats, who stayed away from partisan

politics during his tenure and was steadfast in saying Russia had interfered in the election, despite the president’s skepticism. Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a critical swing vote for the GOP who sits on the intelligence panel, praised Coats and said the intelligence position is very important to her because she co-wrote the legislation that created it 15 years ago. She said she had never heard of Ratcliffe before last week, so she couldn’t comment on his qualifications, but added that she wants “an independent, well-qualified individual in that post.” Another member of the committee, Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, said he didn’t know Ratcliffe and would wait to meet with him to make any decisions. “I’m open on this,” he said. Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford, a Republican who is a former member of the committee, appeared more concerned, saying Tuesday that Ratcliffe will have “some catching up to do” in the role. He said Coats, who had spent decades in Washington, clearly had more experience. “Is he qualified for that job?” Lankford asked,

referring to Ratcliffe. “He’s a qualified, gifted individual, but I think it will take some time for him to do some on the job training to be able to get into it.” On Sunday, shortly after Trump’s Twitter announcement that Coats would be leaving and he’d picked Ratcliffe to replace him, McConnell lavished praise on Coats, calling him a leader who would deliver “unvarnished hard truths” and protect the intelligence community’s work from political or analytical bias. “Very often the news these briefings bring is unpleasant, but it is essential that we be confronted with the facts,” McConnell said. “Dan Coats was such a leader.” McConnell’s statement did not mention Ratcliffe. Other Senate Republicans were more vocal in supporting the Texas congressman. Sen. Richard Burr, the Republican chairman of the Senate intelligence panel, said Monday that he “will work aggressively” to push the nomination through his panel once the White House sends it to Congress. “I don’t have any concerns,” Burr told reporters.

2 dead, 2 hurt in shooting at Walmart By Adrian Sainz Associated Press

SOU THAVEN, Miss. — A gunman described as a disgruntled Walmart employee fatally shot two co-workers and wounded a police officer before he was shot and arrested Tuesday morning at a Walmart store in northern Mississippi, authorities said. DeSoto County District Attorney John Champion said 39-year-old Martez Terrell Abram shot a Southaven police officer, who was protected by a bulletproof vest and suffered minor injuries. Southaven Police Chief Macon Moore said a second Southaven officer shot Abram, who underwent surgery at a hospital in neighboring Memphis, Tennessee. Both the people killed were Walmart employees, Moore said. Employees told The Associated Press that the first was shot in the parking lot, and the second was shot inside the store. Southaven Mayor Darren Musselwhite described the suspect as a disgruntled worker with a grievance against his employer. Abram, a Southaven resident, had been suspended from the store in recent days after he showed a knife to a co-worker. A police report had been filed, but Champion said Abram didn’t appear to have threatened the co-worker and criminal charges weren’t being pursued. “It wasn’t an accident,” said Travis Jones, an overnight stocker who was working

when he heard shots. “He knew what he was doing when he came in there.” Jones said he saw the body of store manager Anthony Brown on the floor as they ran out of the store. “It was an ugly scene,” he said. DeSoto County Coroner Joshua Pounders said the 40-yearold Brown, an Olive Branch resident, appears to have died from a gunshot wound. Nicholas Gales said the other slain worker was his brother, 38-year-old Brandon Gales of Hernando. Jones called Brandon Gales his best friend and an “all-around good guy,” saying he was the father of multiple children. The shooting at about 6:30 a.m. brought a massive police response to the shopping complex, at a busy exit off Interstate 55 in Southaven, a suburb of 55,000 people. “Our police really showed their guts today,” Musselwhite said, noting Southaven officers recently undertook active shooter training, “If it hadn’t been for their efforts there would have been more

lives lost.” Carlos Odom, 35, had just made his usual visit to his cousin, who works at the Walmart on Tuesday, and said he was leaving when he heard more than a dozen shots. “I just hear gunshots,” Odom said. “Pow. Pow. Pow. Pow. Pow.” “When the cops run into the Walmart, you hear more gunshots,” Odom said. “After that, it stopped.” Phil Cox, 70, said he had just bought some nasal spray and was in the parking lot when he thought he heard a gunshot, and then saw a

man who may have been the shooter run into the store. He got into his truck to leave as police began arriving. “Everything went crazy at that point,” Cox said, expressing sympathy for employees. “It’s just hard to believe what happened here, but it seems like it’s happening everywhere.” Champion said police had recovered multiple weapons and a vehicle and searched Abram’s apartment. He said Abram had purchased guns legally, although he didn’t describe them, and said Abram had no prior criminal record. He said investigators were also reviewing video recordings. Investigators also believe Abram set a fire in the store. Champion said charges could be upgraded or more charges added after the investigation concludes. “I feel extremely confident we’ll have a very prosecutable case,” Champion said. No one answered the door at an address listed for Abram on Tuesday afternoon. Some neighbors at the apartment complex about a mile from the shooting scene said they did not know him.

ACLU: 911 children split at border since 2018 court order SAN DIEGO — More than 900 children have been separated from their families at the border since a judge ordered that the practice be sharply curtailed, the American Civil Liberties Union said Tuesday. One parent was separated for property damage valued at $5, the ACLU said. Six parents were separated for convictions of marijuana possession. Eight were split up for fraud and forgery offenses. A 2-year-old Guatemalan girl was separated from her father after authorities examined her for a fever and diaper rash and found she was malnourished and underdeveloped, the ACLU said. The father, who came from an “extraordinarily impoverished community” rife with malnutrition, was accused of neglect. About 20% of the 911 children separated from June 28, 2018, to June 29 of this year were under 5 years old, including babies, the ACLU said. They include 678 whose parents faced allegations of criminal conduct. Other reasons include alleged gang affiliation, unfitness or child safety concerns, “unverified familial relationship” or parent illness. In June 2018, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered that the practice of splitting up families at the border be halted except in limited circumstances, like child-safety concerns. He told the administration to reunite the more than 2,700 children who were in government custody at the time, which has largely been accomplished.

Police: 2 Chicago moms killed in shooting likely not targets CHICAGO — Two women who worked with a group called Mothers Against Senseless Killings to try to stop gun violence in their South Side Chicago neighborhood were killed by bullets that police don’t believe were intended for them on the same corner where they would often hand out food and bring children to play. The gunfire on Friday night was instead meant for a man who is affiliated with a Chicago street gang and recently got out of prison, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. The 58-year-old man, who was struck in the arm in the shooting and whose name hasn’t been released, is not cooperating with police, Guglielmi said. “We have no information to suggest they were the intended targets,” he said Tuesday, adding that police are still seeking leads in the case. No arrests have been made.

California governor signs bill on presidential tax returns SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California’s Democratic governor signed a law Tuesday requiring presidential candidates to release their tax returns to appear on the state’s primary ballot, a move aimed squarely at Republican President Donald Trump. Most of the major Democratic candidates for president have already publicly disclosed their personal income tax returns as Trump has refused to do so, breaking with decades of tradition by candidates from both parties. The Trump campaign said the law signed by Newsom is “unconstitutional.” But even if the law withstands a likely legal challenge, Trump could avoid the requirement by choosing not to compete in California’s March 3rd primary. The Republican National Committee does not require candidates to appear on primary ballots in all 50 states. With no credible GOP challenger at this point, Trump likely won’t need California’s delegates to win the Republican nomination. The law does not apply to the general election ballot. — Associated Press

Italy: Slain police officer didn’t have gun when stabbed ROME — A plainclothes police officer had forgotten his gun the night he was fatally stabbed during a confrontation with two American teenagers in Rome, an Italian police commander said Tuesday. Gen. Francesco Gargaro of Italy’s paramilitary Carabinieri police force said that even if the officer had been armed, he would not have had time to draw his weapon before he was mortally wounded with a military-style knife. During a news conference, the commander provided some of the first details about the encounter early Friday in which Deputy Brigadier Mario Cerciello Rega, 35, was knifed 11 times. Cerciello Riga and a partner, Andrea Varriale, were assigned to respond to an extortion attempt involving a failed drug deal, Gargaro said. Thieves had demanded money and cocaine in exchange for returning a stolen backpack, he said. The officers were in plainclothes and identified themselves as Carabinieri as they approached two suspects, but were immediately attacked, Gargaro said.

U.S. presidential envoy sent to Sweden for A$AP Rocky’s trial HELSINKI — American rapper A$AP Rocky pleaded not guilty to assault as his trial in Sweden opened Tuesday, a month after a street fight that landed him in jail and became a topic of U.S.-Swedish diplomacy. Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, is accused with two others of beating a 19-year-old man in Stockholm on June 30. Prosecutors played video footage in court that showed Mayers throwing a young man to the ground. Mayers, 30, pleaded not guilty to an assault charge that carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison. He says he acted in self-defense. The Grammy-nominated artist’s extended detention prompted U.S. President Donald Trump to personally intervene on his behalf earlier this month. Mayers nevertheless remained behind bars, angering Trump.

Congo officials say 2nd Ebola case confirmed in city of Goma KINSHASA, Congo — Officials in Congo on Tuesday said a second Ebola case had been confirmed in Goma, the city of more than 2 million people whose first confirmed case in this yearlong outbreak was reported earlier this month. There appeared to be no link between the man’s case and the previous one in Goma, Jean-Jacques Muyembe, a local Ebola response coordinator, told reporters. He arrived on July 13 from a mining area in northeastern Congo’s Ituri province and started showing symptoms on July 22. He is now isolated at an Ebola treatment center. Ebola symptoms can start to occur between two and 21 days from infection, health experts say. — Associated Press

SKorea says NKorea fired unidentified projectiles Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea— North Korea on Wednesday fired several unidentified projectiles off its east coast, South Korea’s military said, less than a week after the North launched two shortrange ballistic missiles into the sea. Observers say the launches were aimed at ramping up pressure on the United States to make concessions as the two countries are struggling to resume diplomacy on the North’s nuclear weapons program. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement the latest launches were done from the North’s northeastern

area. It said South Korea’s military is monitoring for possible additional launches by North Korea. It wasn’t immediately known exactly what North Korea fired or how far the projectiles flew. The launches came six days after North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles that Seoul officials say flew 370 miles before landing off the North’s east coast. The latest launches also came hours after a senior U.S. official said President Donald Trump has sent mementos from his brief visit to North Korea last month to Kim. The official said a top staffer from the National

Security Council hand-delivered photographs from the June Trump-Kim meeting at the demilitarized zone to a North Korean official last week. The Trump administration official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the official wasn’t authorized to speak publicly. Diplomacy between North Korea and the United States remained deadlocked since the second Trump-Kim summit in Vietnam in February ended without any agreement. The summit fell apart after Trump rejected Kim’s demand for widespread sanctions relief in return for dismantling his main nuclear complex, a partial disarmament step.

North Korea’s state media said leader Kim Jong Un supervised a test of a new missile Thursday designed to deliver “solemn warning” to South Korea over its purchase of high-tech U.S.made fighter jets and its plans to conduct military drills that Pyongyang sees as an invasion rehearsal. South Korea’s military said the flight data of the weapon launched Thursday showed similarities to the Russian-made Iskander, a short-range, nuclear-capable missile. A North Korean version could likely reach all of South Korea — and the 28,500 U.S. forces stationed there — and would be extremely hard to intercept.

6 injured by fireworks amid Hong Kong protests on riot charges By Katie Tam Associated Press

HONG KONG — Protesters clashed with police again in Hong Kong on Tuesday night after reports that some of their detained colleagues would be charged with the relatively serious charge of rioting. Several hundred protesters mobilized in the streets outside a police station after 44 people were arrested on riot charges stemming from a Sunday night demonstration. Hong Kong police said in a statement Tuesday that the protesters set up roadblocks, broke fences, damaged street signs and attacked police officers with bricks and iron rods. One of the accused is a 33-year-old man who was also charged with assaulting a police officer, police said. The accused rioters and a 24-year-old man charged with weapons possession will appear in court Wednesday. A total of 49 people, including 32 men and 17 women

between the ages of 16 and 41, had initially been arrested from the scene. Hong Kong police said it “will not rule out the possibility of further arrest” as it investigates the four others released temporarily or out on bail. Video livestreamed by Hong Kong media showed protesters chanting slogans and throwing eggs at the Kwai Chung police station. Police used pepper spray to try to disperse them. Fireworks were set off just

before 3 a.m. Wednesday, injuring six men near another police station. Five people were taken to a nearby hospital for their injuries and the sixth man declined medical treatment at the scene, police said. Video footage on social media appears to show a car driving by the Tin Shui Wai police station as fireworks flare by where protesters were gathered. Police said it was not an action taken by officials and

that officers are investigating the incident. The unannounced protest capped another day of unrest. During the morning rush hour, commuters argued with demonstrators who blocked subway train doors in their continuing movement to demand greater accountability from the semiautonomous Chinese territory’s government. Activists began protesting in early June for the government to withdraw an extradition bill that would have allowed people to be sent to stand trial in mainland China, where critics say their legal rights would be threatened. The government suspended the bill, but the protests have expanded to calls for democracy and government accountability. Service was delayed and partially suspended on the Island and Kwun Tong lines, subway operator MTR said. It cited “a number of train door obstructions” as well as someone activating a safety device at a platform on the Kwun Tong line.

Brexit rhetoric toughens; pound slumps By JILL LAWLESS Associated Press

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited Wales on Tuesday on a national tour to reassure voters that his push to leave the European Union “come what may” won’t hurt the economy and rip apart the U.K. The move failed to persuade currency markets,

where the pound slid to a new 28-month low amid rising concerns about a chaotic no-deal Brexit. A day after Johnson was booed in Scotland, he faced another tough reception from farmers — a group central to the Welsh economy — who fear economic havoc if Britain leaves the EU without a divorce deal. They say millions of sheep might have to be slaughtered if tariffs are slapped on lamb exports to the EU. Johnson said after visiting a south Wales poultry farm that his Conservative government would support farmers if their markets became “tricky.” “We will look after the farming sector,” he said. “We will make sure that they have the support that they need.” But National Farmers’ Union President Minette Batters said Britain exports 40% of its lamb and mutton, most of it to EU nations. “(If) we’re tariffed out of the EU market, where does that 40% go?” she said. Helen Roberts of the National Sheep Association accused Johnson of playing “Russian roulette” with the agriculture industry. Johnson’s government argues that leaving the 28-nation trading bloc and its Common Agricultural Policy will be “a historic opportunity to introduce new schemes to support farming” and will open up new markets for U.K. agricultural exports.

The government’s Wales Secretary Alun Cairns said “90% of global growth will come from outside of the EU.” However, trade with the EU accounts for almost half of all British exports and any new trade deals are years away. The Welsh trip follows Johnson’s visit Monday to Scotland, where he was booed by protesters and warned by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon that his vow to take Britain out of the EU on Oct. 31 with or without a divorce deal was “dangerous.” Britain’s 2016 vote to leave the EU divided the country and also strained the bonds among the four nations that make up the U.K.: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. A majority of voters in England and Wales backed leaving in the referendum, while Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain. That has emboldened Scotland’s nationalist government to demand another vote on independence, arguing that Scotland should not be forced out of the EU against its will. In Parliament last week, Scottish National Party lawmaker Ian Blackford mockingly welcomed Johnson as “the last prime minister of the United Kingdom.” Johnson also plans to visit Northern Ireland, the only part of the U.K. to share a land border with the EU. The status of that currently invisible

frontier with the Republic of Ireland has become the main stumbling block to a Brexit deal. The pound has fallen sharply in recent days as businesses warn that no amount of preparation can eliminate the economic damage if Britain crashes out of the EU trading bloc without a Brexit deal. The currency fell early Tuesday to $1.2120, its lowest value since March 2017. “Investors’ main concern remains a hard no-deal Brexit, which has the potential to pull the economy into chaos,” said Fiona Cincotta, senior market analyst at City Index. “Boris Johnson’s new cabinet did little to alleviate those fears, taking a hard line with Europe on forthcoming negotiations.” Johnson became prime minister last week after winning a Conservative Party leadership contest by promising the strongly pro-Brexit party membership that the U.K. will leave the EU on the scheduled date of Oct. 31, with or without a divorce deal. The EU struck a withdrawal agreement with Johnson’s predecessor, Theresa May, but it was rejected three times by Britain’s Parliament. Johnson is insisting the bloc make major changes to May’s spurned deal, including scrapping an insurance policy for the Irish border that has been rejected by U.K. lawmakers.

Relish ... really?

Oven-Roasted Salmon with Relish

By America’s Test Kitchen

It’s no wonder salmon is one of the most popular fish. Its flesh is rich-tasting, thanks to high levels of heart-healthy oils, and it takes well to many treatments. The key is to avoid overcooking it, especially wild salmon, which is leaner than farmed. Our hybrid roasting method solved this by heating the oven to 500 F before dropping the temperature to 275 F. The initial blast of heat firmed the exterior and rendered some fat while the fish gently cooked. Salmon is often roasted in butter, but we wanted a healthier approach that would contrast with the fish’s richness. So we made a bright tangerine relish perked up with spicy ginger. Skin-on salmon fillets hold together better during cooking. If you can’t find tangerines, you can use oranges. If your salmon is less than 1 inch thick, start checking for doneness

early. If using farmed salmon, cook until thickest part of fillet registers 125 F. OVEN-ROASTED SALMON WITH TANGERINE AND GINGER RELISH Servings: 4 Start to finish: 35 minutes Salmon: 4 (4- to 6 ounce) skin-on wild-caught salmon fillets, 1 inch thick 1 teaspoon cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil Salt and pepper

Relish: 4 tangerines, rind and pith removed and segments cut into 1/2 inch pieces (1 cup) 1 scallion, sliced thin 2 teaspoons lemon juice 2 teaspoons cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil 1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger Salt and pepper For the relish: Place tangerines in fine-mesh

strainer set over medium bowl and drain for 15 minutes. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon tangerine juice from bowl. Whisk in scallion, lemon juice, oil, and ginger. Stir in tangerines and season with salt and pepper to taste. For the salmon: Adjust oven rack to lowest position, place aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet on rack, and heat oven to 500 F. Pat salmon dry with paper towels, rub with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Once oven reaches 500 F, reduce oven temperature to 275 F. Remove sheet from oven and carefully place salmon, skin-side down, on hot sheet. Roast until center is still translucent when checked with tip of paring knife and registers 120 F (for mediumrare), 4 to 6 minutes. Slide fish spatula along underside of fillets and transfer to individual plates or serving platter, leaving skin behind; discard skin. Top with relish and serve.

The next level for stuffed tomatoes By America’s Test Kitchen

Named for the hotel where it was invented in Sweden, Hasselbacking is a technique where a vegetable (traditionally potatoes) is partially sliced, accordion style, brushed with butter, sprinkled with bread crumbs, and baked. This approach is also great for tomatoes; think of them as leveledup stuffed tomatoes featuring tons of crispy edges and great browning. We started with meaty, wellshaped plum tomatoes. We cored them, then cut into them and spread a potent, flavorful homemade basil pesto mixed with some crunchy panko bread crumbs over the interiors. We then topped the tomatoes with shredded Gruyère cheese for added punch and placed the stuffed tomatoes under the broiler for just 5 minutes to melt the cheese and slightly soften the tomatoes without turning them to mush. For the best results, we recommend buying ripe tomatoes of similar weight and size. We developed this recipe with tomatoes that averaged 3 ounces in weight and 2

Turn tomatoes onto cut sides so they sit flat, then slice crosswise at 1/4 inch intervals, leaving bottom 1/4 inch of each tomato intact. Process 3/4 cup Gruyère, basil, oil, panko, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in food processor until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl with rubber spatula as needed, about 10 seconds. Adjust oven rack 6 inches from broiler element and heat broiler. Combine 3/4 teaspoon salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper in bowl. Carefully open tomato slices and sprinkle with salt-pepper mixture. Using small spoon, spread basil mixture evenly between tomato slices (about 2 tablespoons per tomato). Arrange tomatoes on prepared wire rack. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup Gruyère over tomatoes.

ort Collins, Colorado, 1962 In about 1962-63 Jack and I bought a place in Poudre Canyon, on the west side of Fort Collins. I wanted to live “in the mountains.” We moved our meager belongings and three kids to this cute little place with one bedroom, a large fireplace that smoked, and a closet that housed a tin washtub for bathing. We had to heat water on the cook stove, which came up from the Poudre River by a pump that was turned on at the house. I washed clothes in a Maytag wringer washing machine out on the small cement porch. I enjoyed this very much. I wish I had that old washing machine back!! The house was built over a big rock, a guest cabin and a oneroom cabin for fishermen. There also was a big dugout cellar dug from the side of the mountain that a big, big bull snake claimed his own. There were creatures everywhere — mountain lions, deer and wild burros (mules) and lots of squirrels. Also, every bird you can imagine! And it had its share of rattlesnakes. I kept constant watch for the scary snakes. I always had a big stick or hoe by the outside door that I carried everywhere. The bull snake, so they told me, kept the rattlesnakes away. I think a snake is a snake and probably one very good reason I have lived in Alaska for 52 years! I loved that place, but it was very difficult living in the winter. We hauled slabs from a wood sawmill not to far from us for a fire in the fireplace that continually smoked. We installed a glass door to the front of it — it still smoked. Our other heat was a little fuel oil heater. I worked at Poudre Valley Hospital on the west side of Fort Collins. But first I had to drop Gail at school in La Porte and then I traveled across town to the babysitter for David and Susan. Then onto Poudre Valley Hospital. I was learning to be a medical transcriber. It’s a job that required a lot of concentration and book learning. Jack worked as a parts man for my dad’s John Deere Store in Fort Collins. Our jobs and kids in school required us to be up early, get dressed, and travel 12 miles (I think) down the canyon to La Porte to put Gail, age 6, in first grade. David and Susan, age 4 and 3, had a very nice babysitter in Fort Collins. I dropped them off and continued to the east side of town to Pourdre Valley Hospital for a job I loved, but was very challenging. The reverse pattern when it came time for me to get off work was followed. The summer days were magnificent, driving back up the canyon, and the snow was beautiful but nerve-racking at times. I drove a four-door green Dodge from about 1955 — good car for the traveling we did. In the summer, we met a dear lady named Marie Bean who lived farther up the canyon from us. On my days off she would invite me and the kids to a game of Yahtzee. She always had dessert of some kind — homemade ice cream sandwiches, big yummy cookies or this wonderful salad dressing cake. She sent big hunks of it home with us. She was a retired teacher and taught the kids and me the game of Yahtzee. I learned this fun game, which I still like to play on my iPad. She taught the kids how to count. Wonderful memories of a grand lady!! With the help of her See grannie, Page A8

Summer tomato gratin: Bright flavor, no mush By America’s Test Kitchen

A summer tomato gratin should burst with concentrated, bright tomato flavor and contrasting firm texture from the bread, but most recipes lead to mushy results. Not this one. Starting our gratin on the stovetop initiated the breakdown of the tomatoes, drove off some moisture that would otherwise have sogged out the bread, and shortened the overall cooking time. We finished the dish in the dry, even heat of the oven. Toasting large cubes of a crusty artisanstyle baguette ensured that the bread didn’t get too soggy once combined with the tomatoes. After toasting the bread, we added the coarsely chopped tomatoes as well as garlic, a small amount of sugar, and salt and pepper. Just before moving the skillet to the oven, we folded in most of the toasted bread and scattered the remainder over the top along with some Parmesan to create a crusty, savory topping that contrasted with the custardy interior. A scattering of fresh basil provided color and bright flavor. The success of this recipe depends on using ripe, in-season tomatoes. Do not use plum tomatoes, which contain less juice than regular round tomatoes and will result in a dry gratin. You can serve the gratin hot, warm, or at room temperature. You will need a 12-inch oven-safe skillet for this recipe. BEST SUMMER TOMATO GRATIN Servings: 6-8 Start to finish: 1 hour, 15 minutes 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

6 ounces crusty baguette, cut into 3/4 inch pieces (4 cups) 3 garlic cloves, sliced thin 3 pounds ripe tomatoes, cored and cut into 3/4 inch pieces 2 teaspoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1 1/2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (3/4 cup) 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 F. Heat 1/4 cup oil in 12-inch ovensafe skillet over medium-low heat until shimmering. Add bread and stir to coat. Cook, stirring constantly, until bread is browned and toasted, about 5 minutes; transfer to bowl. Cook remaining 2 tablespoons oil and garlic in now-empty skillet over low heat, stirring constantly, until garlic is golden at edges, 30 to 60 seconds. Stir in tomatoes, sugar, salt, and pepper. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes have started to break down and have released enough juice to be mostly submerged, 8 to 10 minutes. Off heat, gently stir in 3 cups bread until completely moistened and evenly distributed. Using spatula, press down on bread until completely submerged. Arrange remaining 1 cup bread evenly over surface, pressing to partially submerge. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until top of gratin is deeply browned, tomatoes are bubbling, and juice has reduced, 40 to 45 minutes. After 30 minutes, run spatula around edge of skillet to loosen crust and release any juice underneath. (Gratin will appear loose and jiggle around outer edges but will thicken as it cools.) Remove skillet from oven and let sit for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and serve.

How to a make a moist, chunky shrimp burger By America’s Test Kitchen

A good shrimp burger should be first and foremost about the shrimp. Unfortunately, many shrimp burgers are more reminiscent of fish-flavored rubber patties or over-seasoned bread balls than shrimp. We set out to develop a recipe for our ideal shrimp burger: moist, chunky yet still cohesive, and with seasoning that complements the sweet shrimp flavor but doesn’t overpower it. After early testing we decided we needed a combination of finely chopped shrimp to help bind the burgers, as well as some larger, bite-size chunks. We achieved this texture with help from the food processor. We wanted to use as little binder as possible, to avoid the soggy, mushy results we’d seen in other shrimp burgers that frequently used a combination of mayonnaise, egg, and bread crumbs. We kept the mayonnaise for the much-needed moisture and fat it added but left out the egg and decreased the bread crumbs.

sons Dell and Blake, I am honored to have this recipe! I wondered what happened to Marie’s salad dressing recipe and wrote to her son Dell Bean in Fort Collins. Here is the recipe: Salad Dressing Cake 1 cup sugar 2 cups flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking

Some minced scallion and parsley, lemon zest, and a touch of cayenne pepper rounded out the flavor of our burgers. GRILLED SOUTHERN SHRIMP BURGERS Servings: 4 Start to finish: 1 hour, 15 minutes Chef’s Note: Be sure to use raw, not cooked, shrimp here. Dry the shrimp thoroughly before processing, or the burgers will be mushy. Handle the burgers gently when shaping and grilling; if overhandled while being shaped, the burgers will be dense and rubbery, and if handled roughly during cooking, they will break apart. 1 slice hearty white sandwich bread, torn into large pieces 1/4 cup mayonnaise 2 scallions, minced 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper Pinch cayenne pepper 1 1/2 pounds extra-large shrimp (21 to 25 per pound), peeled, deveined, and patted dry

soda 3 tablespoons cocoa 1 cup salad dressing (Miracle Whip) 1 cup warm water Vanilla (but she didn’t say how much). Dell noted: “There was nothing else on the card so you may have to play with it a bit.” Here’s what I can add to the recipe: Bake in a 9 x 13-inch dish at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. This is a guess, so test with a toothpick before you remove it from the oven. Frost with your favorite canned frosting. We like cream cheese frosting, but we also like the fudge frosting. It is very good without frosting, served with a big dollop of

Vegetable oil Pulse bread in food processor to coarse crumbs, about 10 pulses. Transfer to small bowl. Do not clean food processor. Combine mayonnaise, scallions, parsley, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and cayenne in large bowl until uniform. Pulse shrimp in now-empty food processor until some pieces are finely minced and others are coarsely chopped, about 7 pulses. Add shrimp to mayonnaise mixture and gently fold until just combined. Sprinkle bread crumbs over mixture and gently fold until incorporated. Scrape shrimp mixture onto small baking sheet, divide into 4 equal portions, and loosely pack each into 1-inch-thick patty. Cover and refrigerate patties for at least 30 minutes or up to 3 hours. — For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent completely. Light large chimney starter three-quarters filled with charcoal briquettes (4 1/2 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour evenly over grill. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent completely. Heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. — For a gas grill: Turn all burners to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Turn all burners to medium-high. Clean and oil cooking grate. Lightly brush tops of burgers with oil, lay them

whipped cream. My dad loved it for his midnight snack. He crumbled the cake in a glass with real thick cream from Bessy, our old milk cow, then sprinkled with sugar. He would stir and stir, and eat it with a spoon. I did not develop a taste for this, but Dad always offered a big spoonful — we never refused. Great memories. My recipe calls this mayonnaise cake. This recipe says to dump everything in a bowl and beat until smooth. It also takes 1 cup of mayonnaise. It takes the place of eggs. This is a tasty, moist cake that I bake in a 13 x 9-inch pan or two 8 x 8-inch pans and freeze one or share with someone. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Test for doneness.

SMOKED CANDY SALMON STRIPS (This is a requested recipe)

3/4 cup honey 1/4 cup water 1/2 gallon water 1 cup pickling salt 2 cups dark, dark brown sugar 1 cup real maple syrup Salmon, cleaned and cut into 1/2-inch strips Mix together the water, salt, sugar and syrup. Stir until all ingredients are dissolved. Add fish and brine for 24 hours. Remove fish and smoke anywhere from 8 hours to 1 1/2 days, depending on your smoker. Use the 3/4 cup honey mixed with the 1/4 cup water for basting. Don’t over smoke or you’re going to have jerky! Apple and Cherry woods are great for this recipe. Works well with venison.

Chinooks help Oilers clinch ABL playoff spot Staff Report Peninsula Clarion

The Peninsula Oilers officially clinched a playoff spot in the Alaska Baseball League postseason Tuesday night without ever taking the field. The Oilers (15-29) ended their

regular season Sunday with a doubleheader split with the Anchorage Bucs, but were left to rely on the Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks losing one of their two remaining games to sew up the fourth and final ABL playoff spot. The Chinooks lost 4-1 Tuesday

to the Mat-Su Miners, officially ending their playoff hopes. The Chinooks (13-29) are mathematically eliminated and can not catch the Oilers in the ABL standings. The Bucs (29-14) sit atop the board as the No. 1 seed for the Top of the World Playoffs and will get the Oilers in the first round semifinal

series. The other semifinal series will feature the No. 2 Anchorage Glacier Pilots (26-18) and the No. 3 Miners (25-18). A win for the Chinooks on Tuesday would’ve kept the drama going as Chugiak-Eagle River was able to pass the Oilers in the standings with two straight wins,

but Oilers head coach Kyle Brown said Sunday that the team would have argued for a July 23 raincancelled game between the Chinooks and Bucs to be made up. With the lost game taken off the schedule, the Chinooks have one less regular-season game played.

With two Women’s World Cup titles in hand, U.S. national team coach Jill Ellis says it’s time to move on. Ellis announced Tuesday that she’s resigning, just more than three weeks after the United States raised a second consecutive World Cup trophy following a dominant and record-setting run. She said she started thinking about stepping away around the start of the year, with the intention of seeing the team through this summer’s tournament. “It’s obviously been a fantastic run, a fantastic ride,” she said. Ellis said she wanted to spend more time with her family after more than five years in charge of the team. Currently taking some time

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland pitcher Trevor Bauer has been fined by Major League Baseball for heaving a ball from the pitcher’s mound over the centerfield wall at Kansas City last weekend, a person familiar with the discipline told The Associated Press. The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the discipline was not announced. The players’ association declined comment on the decision.

Ellis, 52, was named coach of the team in 2014 and has led it to eight overall tournament titles, including victories at the World Cup in 2015 and earlier this year. Over the course of her tenure, the United States lost just seven matches. She will remain with the team for a World Cup victory tour which kicks off Saturday with a match against Ireland at the Rose Bowl. Following the conclusion of the fivematch tour in October, she will serve as a U.S. Soccer ambassador for at least a year.

Francona pointed Bauer toward the dugout, and then followed closely behind him, and both disappeared into the tunnel. Bauer apologized to the organization and his teammates.

the status quo. I’m pretty sure you already know what you have to do, as painful as it may be in the short term. Do it now so you won’t be writing me in another three years with the same problem. DEAR ABBY: I’m having a strong disagreement with my sister regarding responsibility for finding child care. My wife and I have to go away for a couple of days, and we need someone to watch one of our children for a Friday and Saturday night. I’m taking my older daughter to a travel tournament, and my wife had a previously planned trip out of town that same weekend. I asked my sister to stay with our other daughter and our dogs in our home because I thought it would be nice for them to spend some time together. She vehemently rebuffed me because “it’s the mother’s responsibility to find someone.” I have never heard of such a thing. I felt like I was transported back to the 1950s. To me, family is family.

Sanders, Warren fight back in support of ‘Medicare for All’ By Steve Peoples and Sara Burnett Associated Press

DETROIT — Liberal firebrands Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren slapped back against moderate rivals who ridiculed “Medicare for All” during Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate in which lesser-known pragmatists warned that “wish-list economics” would jeopardize the presidency. The tug-of-war over the future of the party early in the 2020 season pits voters’ hearts against their heads as they balance their desire for an aggressive response to President Donald Trump against finding a safe choice who can win. Over and over, Sanders and Warren insisted their plans to transform the nation’s economy and health care system make up the core of a winning message. “I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for,” said Warren, a Massachusetts senator, decrying Democratic “spinelessness.” Standing at Warren’s side at center stage, Sanders, a Vermont senator, agreed: “I get a little bit tired of Democrats afraid of big ideas.” The fight with the political left was the dominant subplot on the first night of the second round of Democratic debates. Twenty candidates are spread evenly over two nights Tuesday and Wednesday. The second night of debates will feature early front-runner Joe Biden, the former vice president, as well as Kamala Harris, a California senator. While much of the debate was dominated by attacks on Medicare for All, the issue of race emerged in the second hour. The candidates

were unified in turning their anger toward Trump for using race as a central theme in his reelection campaign. Sanders said Trump exploited racism and others said the president’s rhetoric revived memories of the worst in the country’s history, including slavery. “The legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression is alive and well in every aspect of the economy and the country today,” said former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, adding that he supported the creation of a panel to support reparations for the descendants of slaves. In many respects, the broader debate is only beginning. The Democratic nomination won’t be secured until the party’s national convention next July in Wisconsin.

Despite the long road ahead, there is an increasing sense of urgency for many candidates who are fighting for survival. More than a dozen could be blocked from the next round of debates altogether — and effectively pushed out of the race — if they fail to reach new polling and fundraising thresholds implemented by the Democratic National Committee. O’Rourke is likely to qualify, even as he tries to stop his sharp slide in the polls. But those especially at risk among Tuesday’s lineup include Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, the only governors in the running, and Midwestern natives such as Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan. Also on stage: former Maryland Rep.

John Delaney and author and activist Marianne Williamson. Klobuchar, who is struggling to keep her campaign alive, aligned herself with the struggling pragmatic wing Tuesday night: “We are more worried about winning an argument than winning an election.” Bullock took a swipe at Sanders: Working people “can’t wait for a revolution,” he charged. “Their problems are here and now.” But perhaps no issue illustrates the evolving divide within the Democratic Party more than health care. Sanders’ plan to create a free universal health care system, known as Medicare for All, has become a litmus test for liberal candidates, who have embraced the plan to transform the current health care

system despite the political and practical risks. Medicare for All would abandon the private insurance market completely in favor of a taxpayer-funded system that would cover all Americans. In targeting Medicare for All, the more moderate candidates consistently sought to undermine the signature domestic policy proposal of the top two progressives on the stage, Sanders and Warren. They variously derided Medicare for All as too costly, ineffective and a nearcertain way to give Republicans the evidence they needed that Democrats supported socialism. “They’re running on telling half the country that their health care is illegal,” Delaney said. “We have a choice: We can go down the road that Sen. Sanders and Sen. Warren want to take us, which is with bad policies like Medicare for All, free everything and impossible promises,” he continued. “It will turn off independent voters and get Trump reelected.” Yet Sanders and Warren did not back down. And while they are competing for the same set of liberal voters, there seemed to be no daylight between them Tuesday. “Health care is a human right, not a privilege. I believe that. I will fight for that,” Sanders said. For his part, Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, called on his party to stop the infighting. “It is time to stop worrying about what the Republicans will say,” Buttigieg declared. “It’s true that if we embrace a far-left agenda, they’re going to say we’re a bunch of crazy socialists. If we embrace a conservative agenda, you know what they’re going to do? They’re going to say we’re a bunch of crazy socialists. So let’s just stand up for the right policy, go out there and defend it.”
