Dunleavy has skin cancer removed ANCHORAGE — Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s office announced Friday that biopsies of skin variations removed from his forehead confirmed a basal cell carcinoma, or a mild form of skin cancer. Dunleavy’s spokesman Matt Shuckerow says Dunleavy took precautionary measures with his dermatologist this week, which left a series of sutures on his forehead. Shuckerow says the carcinoma was removed. He also says Dunleavy and his doctor believe potential risks were addressed with the routine procedure. Dunleavy first talked about the issue Friday morning, tweeting a photo in which his sutures are visible. He wrote: “I’m happy to say, I’m in good health. Moral of the story, wear sunscreen.” Dunleavy temporarily suspended his gubernatorial campaign in 2017 for medical issues involving his heart. In reviving his campaign, Dunleavy said his treatments were successful.

Borough to vote on sales tax cap bump By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

During its Tuesday meeting, the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will discuss and vote on an ordinance increasing the

maximum amount subject to borough sales tax from $500 to $1,000. The ordinance to increase the maximum amount subject to borough sales tax was introduced by Mayor Charlie Pierce and assembly

member Kenn Carpenter. The ordinance is aimed at maintaining future fund balances, according to the ordinance document. “Due to the continuing uncertainty about state and local revenues, the decline

in state assistance to municipalities, the increasing loss in property tax revenues to the borough from exemptions on real property, and increasing reliance on borough funding for the school district, the borough must take steps

to maintain its unrestricted fund balance into the future within financially prudent and responsible parameters to enable it to fund the services and public education See tax, Page A3

A movement to recall Gov. Mike Dunleavy started on Thursday with rallies around the state, including one held at WKFL Park in Homer. Co-sponsored by former Alaska senators Arliss Sturgulewski and Vic Fischer, and Usibelli Coal Board Chairman Joseph Usibelli, the Recall Dunleavy group seeks to remove the governor from office on several grounds, including his failure to appoint a judge in a timely manner, misuse of state funds, violating separation of powers, and incompetence, the group says. “Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s sudden, severe, and sometimes illegal budget cuts have caused tremendous harm to Alaska and Alaskans,” Usibelli wrote in an editorial with his wife, Alaska State Laureate Peggy Shumaker. “…What we cannot afford is for Gov. Dunleavy to remain in office.” In Homer, over the course two hours on Aug. 1 a steady stream of voters lined up to sign recall applications, with 300 people signing in the first hour alone. Protesters stood on the lawn by Pioneer Avenue waving signs that said “Yes to education; no to Dunleavy,” “Think responsibly about our future” and simply “Save our state.” Rallies also were held in Anchorage, Bethel, Cordova, Fairbanks, Haines, Igiugig, Juneau, Ketchikan, Kodiak, Wasilla, Sitka, Unalaska, Valdez and Yakutat. A Soldotna woman, Michele Vasquez, and her husband, Larry Simmons, signed an application while visiting Homer. Vasquez wore a T-shirt that read “Profane guttersnipes for justice,” a reference to a Republican Party term for people who protested at Wasilla Middle School during the special session earlier this month. “I think he’s trying to decimate and devastate the state with his draconian budget cuts,” Vasquez said. “It’s insane. I’ve never seen anything like this, except Kansas.” University of Alaska Fairbanks graduate Sara Betcher, who got a master’s degree in cross cultural studies and now lives in Homer where she works as a documentary filmmaker, cited Dunleavy’s cuts to educations as why she signed a recall application. “I feel like his decisions have led to a political emergency with funding cuts to important agencies and programs,” she said. “… He’s put a lot of people in a mental state of crisis. I think with the recall that can give us some level of hope things can normalize.” Meg Mitchell expressed a similar sentiment. “I am in bliss,” she said of the recall effort. “… This is exciting.” Homer writer and whale researcher Shelley Gill spoke at the rally, outlining the reasons for the recall as well as the process.

‘Three days of fish’ festival returns with renewed energy By Megan Pacer Homer News


ome people know the story of how Salmonfest came to be, a lot don’t. Back in 2011, it was debuted as Salmonstock. The main purpose for the festival at that time was to protest the proposed Pebble Mine Project, and to drum up funds and support for fighting it. When it appeared Pebble would no longer be an issue, several of the festival’s producers pulled out and festival director Jim Stearns forged ahead under the name Salmonfest with Cook Inletkeeper as a new major partner. “We got involved in year one,” said Bob Shavleson of Cook Inletkeeper. “And every year that interest has grown.” Same festival, different name, and perhaps a bit less urgency. That’s not how things have felt at the annual “three days of fish, love and music” for the last two years. With See fest, Page A2

Fish, love and … compost? By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Three days of fish, love and music — and three days of environmental activism. For the past three years, volunteers from Cook Inletkeeper have attempted to make the Ninilchik music festival a zero waste experience. Executive Director of Cook Inletkeeper Carly Weir said the effort has two main goals: to reduce the amount of trash produced during the festival and to educate festivalgoers about responsible waste disposal. To reach those goals, Inletkeeper set up 11 waste stations throughout the fairgrounds, each manned by a volunteer. The stations had four disposal bins: one for plastic, one for aluminum, one for compostable

Striking ferry workers, state reach tentative deal By Mark Thiessen Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — The state of Alaska and the union representing striking ferry workers on Friday announced they have reached an agreement that could end the work stoppage that cost millions of dollars and stranded passengers in coastal communities. Terms of the three-year deal will not be disclosed until Inlandboatmen’s Union of the Pacific members ratify the agreement, which could come as soon as Monday, state officials said. “It’s a win-win situation,”

Department of Administration Commissioner Kelly Tshibaka said during a teleconference. “It’s good for employees, it’s good for Alaska, and that’s what really matters” A federal mediator participated in the negotiations. Tshibaka said both sides made concessions and compromises concerning wages, health care and the length of the contract. Union spokesman Robb Arnold did not immediately respond to a message from The Associated Press. However, the union’s president and chief negotiator, Marina Secchitano, is quoted in a news release from the state saying they

are pleased with the deal. “This new agreement addresses many of our members’ concerns,” she said. It was the first strike for the ferry system since 1977, when the dispute lasted 20 days. The ferry system is an important link to many small Alaska communities not connected to the state’s limited road system. The ferries operate along 3,500 miles of coastline, stretching from Bellingham, Washington, to the Aleutian Islands. The state was working Friday to bring the ferries back online, and the earliest any could sail would be Saturday, Department of Transportation Commissioner John

the proposed Pebble Mine being given another opportunity to secure permits, many Alaskans are worried. The original intent of Salmonfest is back in full force and could be felt in nearly every corner of the Ninilchik Fairgrounds this past weekend. Throughout the musical performances on Friday and Saturday, festival organizers and volunteers took advantage of their captive audiences to bring out activist and advocacy workers to the stage as well. Each speaker had their own concerns to address, but they call came down to protecting habitat for salmon in Alaska. For some speakers, that meant keeping Pebble from becoming reality. For others, it meant recalling Gov. Mike Dunleavy, and for still others (the scientists who took the stage, in particular) it meant getting serious about slowing the effects of climate change. Daniel Lynch, a Soldotna resident, stepped onto the Ocean Stage on Saturday dressed in a red onesie and tall, striped hat that read Dr Suess’ “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.” But he took some creative liberties by changing the words when he said: “Some are sad, some are glad, some are very, very bad. Why are they sad, glad and bad? I don’t know, go ask your dad. Well if your dad’s not here, here’s why the fish are

people the opportunity to properly dispose of their trash, it is also an education opportunity for anyone unsure of which bin is appropriate for their trash. Many people expressed surprise when volunteers pointed out that their plates and silverware could be composted. “It’s a quick interaction that still ends up being an educational experience,” Astalos said. Weir said that in the first year of the Zero Waste Initiative, about 8% of the total waste collected was successfully composted. In the second year, that number jumped to about 20%, and this year Weir said the goal

mad and sad: We’ve got a new governor, and he’s got big money friends, and they want to rape and pillage we the people’s resources.” Just before headliner Ani DiFranco took the stage on Friday, activist Lydia Olympic, the former president of Igiugig Tribal Village Council, was invited out for a few words on the subject of protecting salmon. She spoke of her decision to leave that position, and how it was motivated by not feeling she was able to stay neutral on the issue of the proposed Pebble Mine. “I’m going to dedicate, full time … to

is to have 25% of the waste composted. Weir said that the volunteers learn how to improve their strategy with each year. This year some of the new strategies included adding waste disposal stations at the nearby campgrounds and distributing separate bags for trash and recycling to the campers. In addition to educating the festivalgoers, Cook Inletkeeper has worked with the vendors at Salmonfest to ensure that most, if not all, materials given out are eco-friendly. This year is the first time that vendors were required to use compostable or recyclable materials wherever possible, so that each plate of food, each napkin and each utensil given out at Salmonfest could find its way to the compost bin rather than the trash.

“By focusing on waste on the front end with the vendors, it makes it a lot easier to walk our talk when it comes to environmental activism,” Weir said. Several of the Zero Waste volunteers reported that the compost and recycling bins were filling up much faster than the trash bins, and a large portion of the actual trash this year was tinfoil from food vendors. Weir said that there’s no effective environmental alternative to tinfoil yet, but that issue is frequently discussed during planning and brainstorming sessions. It takes a lot of volunteers to man the waste stations for all three days, but Weir said they have had no problem finding people, and in fact had to turn some volunteers away this year. Weir said Inletkeeper has a reliable

MacKinnon said. Expected to get back into service first would be day boats like the Tazlina and Aurora. “Our goal is to get this system back in operation according to its published schedule and continue to provide service to the coastal communities,” he said. The union representing about 430 ferry workers went on strike July 24 over wages, health care and uncertainty for their future amid budget cuts. MacKinnon said as of Thursday afternoon, the state had to refund about $3.2 million to 8,300 passengers and 2,300 vehicles because of the strike.

fighting this f****** proposed Pebble Mine,” Olympic said. Advocacy markedly stepped out of the Salmon Causeway this year — the section of the festival reserved for educational and activist booths and groups — and onto center stage. “We’re also seeing increased threats to our salmon culture,” Shavleson said. “And this year we saw an incredible heat wave that pushed temperatures over 80 degrees Fahrenheit in the Deshka (River) and there were thermal barriers preventing salmon from returning to their spawning grounds. So we think people are recognizing more and more, it’s vital to protect this unique resource.” The Salmon Causeway has been growing since its inception. New this year was a painting of the Cook Inlet Watershed, where festivalgoers were invited to dip their thumbs in ink and mark a town or location on the map they felt a deep connection to. The map also had landmarks labeled with their traditional Alaska Native names. Another part of the causeway that’s been growing is the education cooking demonstrations. Inspired by the Chef and the Market feature of the Homer Farmer’s Market, the demos allow people to watch a local chef prepare food before tasting some of it for themselves. This year, “Check the Pantry” radio show host Jeff Lockwood showed people who to use every part of the salmon, while Evan Vogl of the Little

corps of volunteers, many of whom have come back year after year. One of the volunteers, John Sanborn from Soldotna, was manning a station for the first time this year, but he’s no stranger to environmental activism. Sanborn is an intensive-needs aide at Soldotna Elementary and started the school’s recycling program a few years back.

“That is a big revenue hit to the system, and that loss of revenue will impact our ability to operate in the future,” MacKinnon said. The biggest disruption came when two ferries, the Columbia and the Kennicott, were en route to Bellingham but docked in Ketchikan for the strike, stranding passengers. “It was hard to get them out of Ketchikan,” MacKinnon said of trying to get passengers to their destinations. He said some stranded vehicles were put on cargo ships for the final destinations, but some passengers and their vehicles still remain stranded in Ketchikan.

Mermaid restaurant in Homer prepared salmon poke and Carrie Thurman and Sharon Roufa of Homer’s Two Sisters Bakery concocted a savory salmon chowder. “I think it was founded on that idea that it’s about music, but it’s also about getting people involved, engaged and educated,” Shavelson said of the growth of the Salmon Causeway. “And the people that come to event are into that.” People are also into the food and music that Salmonfest provides. Stearns has said he makes a dedicated effort to secure female headliners every year. This year’s main Friday headliner, Ani DiFranco, serenaded a large crowd with a mix of her oldies and things she’s written more recently since moving to New Orleans 15 years ago. As she wailed on her selection of guitars and belted out ballads, DiFranco elicited tears from 20-year-old and 50-year-olds alike in the crowd. Back again this year was the art installation by Homer artists and activist Mavis Muller. Each year, Muller designs an image having something to do with salmon and water. She then creates that image on the sand of the rodeo grounds with large pieces of colored cloth. Finally, people attending the festival are invited to come out and surround the image, lying side by side. A photograph of the art installation is taken via drone from the air.

Sanborn said that each classroom has a recycling bin now and that the program is entirely powered by the students. The kids periodically go to each classroom to pick up the bins and do a little bit of sorting before sending the materials off to be recycled, and after a certain number of pickups the students are rewarded with a pizza party. The Inletkeeper volunteers

also get a little bit of help from the local 4-H group that has kids come out Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings to clean up the perimeter of the fairgrounds. After the festivities are over, Weir and the other volunteers will get together to talk about what worked, what didn’t and what they can do to continue promoting ethical consumption at Salmonfest.

Edwin “Cowboy” Neal Allen February 2, 1935 - July 18, 2019

Edwin “Cowboy” Neal Allen, beloved Father, Grandfather, Brother, and Uncle, returned home to our Heavenly Father July 18, 2019. Ed was born Feb 2, 1935 in Jena, LA to Dwight Moody and Janet Almeda Allen (Dickens). Ed enjoyed playing basketball and loved hunting with his brothers. After graduating from Jena High School, Ed joined the United States Army and was stationed at Wildwood in Kenai, AK in 1957. Ed met and married his first wife of 28 years, Barbara Jean Stock, on Jan 25, 1958. Ed performed a year of isolated duty on Shemya Island in 1961 and remained stationed in Alaska until 1962 when he was then transferred to Warrenton, VA and then again to Fort Dix, NJ in 1965. In 1967 Ed was sent to Vietnam and served as a Field Advisor to the Montagnard People of the Central Highlands. He was wounded his first year in Vietnam when his jeep hit a landmine. Ed returned home to Ft Richardson, AK in 1968 but his love for the Mountain People of Vietnam called him back; he volunteered for another tour in 1969. After 2 years in Vietnam Ed returned to be stationed at Fort Polk, LA, in order to be close to his family. Ed’s love for Alaska sent him back in 1973 when he requested a transfer to Fort Greely. In 1975 he retired from the United States Army with an honorable discharge as a Master Sgt of Arms. Ed and his family settled in Soldotna, AK where he worked for the Alaska Pipeline and did home construction until accepting a position with the AK State Prison in Seward, AK as a Correctional Officer. Ed met and married Donna Poage in 1991. Ed was a master craftsman and builder, an avid hunter of Ptarmigan, Rabbits, and Squirrel, and an expert fisherman. Alaska created the perfect setting for his passions and talents. Ed had a love and pride for his Country unsurpassed by none; his dedication and loyalty to the United States Army continued well past his retirement. Ed was preceded in death by his parents and brothers; Bill, Dwight (Doodle), Butch, and George Allen. He is survived by his brother Leon Allen, sister Betty Massey, wife Donna Allen (Poage), children; Warren Allen, Melanie Smith, Peggy Salvador, Devona Covey, and Jared Allen, 24 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews who adored their Uncle Cowboy.

In a July 25 memo to the assembly, Borough Finance Director Brandi Harbaugh said estimates indicate the increase would generate approximately $3.1 million to $3.4 million annually in borough revenue. “Which would help to protect the unrestricted fund balance in future years at current borough spending levels.”

“Kitty” passed away with her daughter at her side in Sparks, Nevada after a battle with cancer. Her going away party on her 99th birthday brought smiles to all. Not much could slow her down but she was ready to see her loved ones. Heaven’s gain is our loss. Kathleen Helen Foley was born in DaLamere, North Dakota to Hank and Ida (Simon) Foley. She graduated from high school in Havre, continuing on to Sacred Heart Nursing School in Havre, Montana graduating in 1941. She followed her mother to Alaska, working as a nurse at Providence Hospital in Anchorage. In 1943, she joined the United States Army as a nurse and was deployed to the Aleutian Chain. She cared for United States soldiers in the field for a year on Attu Island. She met her future husband, Wayne Mize, at the VFW post in Anchorage and they married in 1946. Their daughter Ida Mae was born in Anchorage. The family then moved to California, where their son Wayne was born. They lived and raised their children in California, moved to Nevada, and retired to both Alaska and Arizona in the 80’s. Kitty worked as an RN in multiple hospitals, always caring for those in need. They retired to Yuma, Arizona where Kitty lived until December of 2018. They traveled frequently; to Panama, Europe and Hawaii, as well as spending summers in Alaska. In 2016 Kitty and her son traveled to Washington DC with the Alaska Honor Flight. She was one of the oldest surviving female WWII veterans in America. She spent her life caring for others, gardening, reading and staying active in her community. “Grama Kitty” was a pillar of the family, the best storyteller and was treasured by all. Her family was always of utmost importance in her life and being a Veteran was a close second. Her faith in the Lord kept her strong until she was taken home. She was preceded in death by her husband, Wayne (Weyman) Mize, her parents, Hank and Ida Foley, brothers Tom and Tiny (Pershing) Foley, and sister Lavonne Goodrich. She is survived by her daughter Ida Mae Wilson and John Evans of Sparks Nevada; son Wayne and Mary Mize of Sterling, granddaughters Morgan and husband Chad Aldridge also of Sterling and Sondra Padlo of Dallas Texas. A service of remembrance will be held in Kenai at Star of the North Lutheran Church on September 15, 2019 at 2pm.

and the borough’s best interests would be served by keeping the cap on residential rentals at $500 per month,” the ordinance document states. The ordinance does not specify how much additional revenue would be generated from the increase. The additional funds would go to support local education and general borough government purposes, the document states. The public hearing on this issue will be at Tuesday’s meeting, and if approved, would find its way on the October ballot for the voters to decide. If approved by voters, the increase would be effective Jan. 1, 2020.

Coach resigns following accident

FAIRBANKS — An Alaska high school football coach resigns following a swimming accident that hospitalized three student-athletes. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Thursday that West Valley High School head football coach Roy Hessner stepped down Thursday after three students were rescued from the bottom of the University of Fairbanks swimming pool July 26. Officials say the football team rented the pool for a conditioning session and witnesses reported the students sank while treading water. Officials say the students were transported to a hospital Sunday and all were released by Wednesday. — Associated Press

Another day, another shooting



wo American traditions — summer celebrations and gun violence — collided in jarring fashion over the weekend. Here in California, a man armed with a military-style rifle snuck through a perimeter fence at the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival and opened fire late Sunday afternoon, killing three people, two of them children, while a dozen others were wounded or injured fleeing the pandemonium. Police on Monday morning were trying to determine why the gunman, identified as Santino William Legan, 19, of Gilroy, decided to shoot up the festival. A day earlier and on the other side of the continent, gunmen opened fire during a neighborhood Old Timers Day celebration in a Brooklyn, N.Y., park, killing one person and wounding or injuring 11 others. Police were investigating whether the incident was gang-related. As a nation, we’ve become slowly accustomed to such senseless violence, with attacks on houses of worship, on schools, at workplaces and on family members. Just last week, police in Los Angeles arrested Gerry Dean Zaragoza after he allegedly shot three family members in Canoga Park, killing two of them, then shot a former girlfriend and a man at a gas station, killing the woman. Then later still, police say, he shot dead a stranger on a bus. Separately, an off-duty Los Angeles police officer grabbing a late taco with his girlfriend and her two brothers in Lincoln Heights confronted a graffiti tagger and was shot and killed. The inevitable debates after Gilroy will touch on the usual themes. It wasn’t the gun, it was the poison in the man’s mind. There’s some truth to that, given that firearms are inanimate objects. But without a firearm, the man couldn’t have shot anyone. And without the semiautomatic function of the firearm, he couldn’t have shot so many so quickly. And military-style rifles like the one used Sunday are conceived and designed for battlefields and it’s preposterous to sell them for hunting or “self-defense.” The violence, of course, won’t move President Trump or Congress to act. Trump tweeted Monday that the shooting was “horrific” and said we should continue to “work together as communities and citizens” to prevent violence. But in fact he has done virtually nothing to address our long-running national scourge. He has fallen into the full embrace of the National Rifle Assn. in ways no other recent president has done. “You have a true friend in the White House,” he told the NRA two years ago, after the group spent $30 million to help get him elected. In truth, the fault is not Trump’s alone. Successive administrations, and Congresses, have failed to break the gun lobby’s stranglehold on federal gun policies. And so the nation will continue to suffer gunshot wounds by the dozens each day, and by the tens of thousands each year. And something so harmless as a celebration of garlic, or of a Brooklyn neighborhood, will continue to carry the possibility of violent death. — The Los Angeles Times, July 29


n Open Letter to the People of Alaska: Dear friends and neighbors, we take seriously our obligation to build and sustain communities so that Alaskans may thrive. We know that using resources wisely requires long-term planning and plenty of listening. Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s sudden, severe, and sometimes illegal budget cuts have caused tremendous harm to Alaska and Alaskans. Gov. Dunleavy has put forward a long list of vetoes, saying we cannot afford access to medical care, access to a properly funded university, access to art and culture. The governor would have us neglect our obligations to elder care and Head Start, to shelter for the homeless. The governor thinks we cannot afford to fund scholarships that Alaska’s brightest students have worked hard to earn, scholarships already awarded. With careful planning, we can afford all those things. What we cannot afford is for Gov. Dunleavy to remain in office. His brief time as governor has brought us an atmosphere of fear and distress, as people worry about whether they will be able to care for special-needs children or whether they will lose their jobs, their homes, and their ability to live in Alaska. We cannot allow a governor who

doesn’t understand the concept of separation of powers to remain in power. He cannot be allowed to attack the judiciary because courts make decisions he doesn’t like. He cannot be allowed to keep the Legislature from upholding its constitutional responsibilities to fund programs that provide for the health, education, and well-being of Alaska’s people. We cannot trust a governor who uses state funds for his own political gain. People from all regions of Alaska have had enough. Urban and rural leaders, Republicans, Democrats, and non-partisans, want the governor gone. Alaska Native organizations, educators, medical professionals, business leaders, bankers, environmentalists, labor, arts organizations, and nonprofits know we can do better. We stand together to call for Gov. Dunleavy’s ouster. We have asked a team of Alaska’s finest legal experts to draft a petition stating the reasons we must recall Gov. Dunleavy. We respectfully ask you to join us in the recall process. — Co-chairs of Recall Dunleavy are Joseph E. Usibelli, Arliss Sturgulewski and Vic Fischer.

Impeachment summer? Town halls may decide next steps By Lis Mascaro, Mike Catlini, Denise Lavoie and David Eggert Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Freshman Democratic Rep. Andy Kim came face to face with impeachment fervor at a town hall in New Jersey. “Do your job!” shouted one voter. Several states away, a woman held up a copy of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and told freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin at a Michigan town hall she hoped she would “be the person that puts us over the top to start an impeachment inquiry.” And in Virginia, newcomer Rep. Abigail Spanberger encountered voters with questions, if not resolve, about impeaching President Donald Trump. “I don’t have blood dripping from my fangs for or against impeachment,” said David Sussan, 70, a retired postal inspector from Chesterfield, who favors starting an inquiry. “I just want the truth to come out.” It’s these freshman lawmakers, and others like them, who will likely decide when, if ever, House Democrats start formal efforts to impeach the president. Neither Kim, nor Slotkin, nor Spanberger supports impeachment. But with half the House Democrats now in favor of beginning an inquiry, the pressure will only mount on the holdouts to reach a tipping point. And with lawmakers returning home to voters during the August recess, what happens next may prove pivotal. The pro-impeachment group Need to Impeach is running television ads. Along with activists from other groups, it’s also fanning out to congressional districts to push lawmakers, including House Speaker

Nancy Pelosi, to move more swiftly toward impeachment proceedings. The organization’s lead strategist, Kevin Mack, says his counsel to lawmakers, especially those new freshmen who took over formerly Republican-held seats, is to ignore the campaign consultants and party strategists, and “do what you think is right” about Trump. “You can’t really make the argument he’s the most corrupt president in American history and not hold him accountable,” he said. “Either you think what he’s doing is OK or you hold him accountable.” For lawmakers, though, the calculus is not so simple. Voters in many of these districts helped elect Trump in 2016, but flipped to give Democrats control of the House in last year’s election. Many of the first-term Democrats already face challengers for 2020 and are trying to balance the divergent views in their districts. While some voters want impeachment, others have different priorities. New Jersey lawmaker Kim, a former national security official, told some 80 voters at a town hall in Riverside to remain even-keeled and to trust in the investigative process that House Democrats are pursuing. “I don’t think getting caught up in the knife fighting and name calling is going help us get out of this pit,” Kim said. That caused some from the crowd to retort that pursuing impeachment wasn’t “knife fighting” but part of the Constitution. “Just do the investigation into impeachment,” said Marianne Clemente, of Barnegat. “Just so that we’re doing something” to show Trump he’ll be held accountable, she said. “If we let him get away with

this, we can kiss our democracy goodbye.” Some of the loudest applause from the audience came when one constituent stood up and said Trump was “destroying our country.” Another voter said the congressman’s focus on other issues, like health care, was like “cutting the grass while the house is on fire.” In Spanberger’s Virginia district over the past week, she, too, fielded several questions about her stand on the impeachment inquiry as she crisscrossed the region for town halls. When she was asked about it in Culpeper, Spanberger told voters that she helped block an impeachment bill based on Trump’s racism because she did not believe that qualifies as “high crimes and misdemeanors” set out by the Constitution. “My opinion and stance has long been that I believe in facts and evidence,” she said. “As long as the investigations are continuing, and we see my colleagues are continuing to gather information, I am watching very closely.” Democrat Ron Artis, a retiree, seemed satisfied with the new congresswoman’s approach. “If she was to come out without having enough people behind her, that stuff is suicidal,” he said. And when Michigan lawmaker Slotkin faced the questioner armed with Mueller’s report, she told those gathered at the store in Mason about two recent moves by House Democrats that she sees as important — the special counsel’s testimony and House subpoenas of the Trump administration. “I’m open to where this goes,” Slotkin said.

“But I think that it is important that we do it in a way that communicates clearly what we are intending. And we do it in a way that doesn’t forget about the other part of our job, which is to legislate.” One of those attending the event, Army veteran Joshua Johnson, 41, of Webberville, expressed some skepticism about impeachment and said Congress should keep investigating. “I don’t know that impeaching the president is going to be a good thing,” he said. He worries the 2020 election is right around the corner, and any impeachment proceeding won’t get done “in time to make a difference.” He added, “I think it might hurt more than it helps. … It probably splits people worse.” Pelosi has made it clear she has no plans to press toward impeachment without a groundswell of support on and off Capitol Hill. The speaker, who was herself a newer congresswoman during Bill Clinton’s impeachment and rejected calls to impeach George W. Bush during her first speakership, is not eager for Democrats to take on such a politically, emotionally fraught issue alone. So far, Pelosi’s effort to cater to the frontline freshmen appears to be holding House Democrats in line. Even though she gave lawmakers a greenlight after Mueller’s testimony to speak their minds on impeachment, and dozens of lawmakers announced their support for starting an inquiry, it’s still nowhere near the 218 votes Pelosi would need to pass legislation in the House. The holdouts will likely determine what Pelosi does next.

At least 20 dead in mall shooting By Cedar Attanasio, Michael Balsamo and Diana Heidgerd Associated Press

EL PASO, Texas — Twenty people were killed and more than two dozen injured in a shooting Saturday in a busy shopping area in the Texas border town of El Paso, the state’s governor said. Meanwhile, the police chief said among the possibilities being investigated is whether it was a hate crime. Two law enforcement officials who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity identified the suspect taken into custody as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius of the Dallas area. Police said another 26 people were injured, most of them being treated at area hospitals. Most of the victims were believed to have been shot at a Walmart near the Cielo Vista Mall, they said, adding that the store was packed with as many as 3,000 people during the busy back-to-school shopping season. “The scene was a horrific one,” said El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen, who added that many of the injured had life-threatening injuries. He said police also had found a manifesto that may have been written by Crusius and posted online — one reason it was being investigated as a hate crime. Residents were volunteering to give blood to the injured, while police and military members were trying to help people who were looking for missing loved ones. “It’s chaos right now,” said Austin Johnson, an Army medic at nearby Fort Bliss, who volunteered to help at the shopping center and later at the school that was serving as a reunification center. Adriana Quezada, 39, said she was in the women’s clothing section of Walmart with her two children when the shooting happened. “I heard the shots but I thought they were hits, like roof construction,” she said. Her 19-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son threw themselves to the ground, then ran out of the Walmart through an emergency exit. They were not hurt, Quezada said. She said she saw four men, dressed in black, moving together firing guns indiscriminately. Police later said they think there was just one shooter. Police said by midafternoon that a suspect was in custody and the public was no longer in danger. Gomez said the suspect, who used a rifle, was arrested without incident. Police believe he was the “sole shooter” but are continuing to investigate reports that others were involved. The mass shooting in El Paso came less than a week after a gunman opened fire on a California food festival. Santino William Legan, 19, killed three people and injured 13 others last Sunday at the popular Gilroy Garlic

Festival, and died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Ryan Mielke, a spokesman for University Medical Center of El Paso, said 12 people were brought to the hospital with injuries, including one that died. Two of the injured were children who were being transferred to El Paso Children’s Hospital, he said. He declined to provide additional details on the victims. Eleven other victims were being treated at Del Sol Medical Center, according to hospital spokesman Victor Guerrero. He said those victims ages ranged from 35 to 82. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called the shooting “a heinous and senseless act of violence” and said the state had deployed a number of law enforcement officers to the city. “Reports are very bad, many killed,” President Donald Trump tweeted. Presidential candidate and former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke appeared a bit shaken as

he appeared at a candidate forum Saturday in Las Vegas shortly after news of the shooting in his hometown was reported. O’Rourke, who said he had called his wife before taking the stage, said the shooting shatters “any illusion that we have that progress is inevitable” on tackling gun violence. The Democrat said he heard early reports that the shooter might have had a military-style weapon, saying we need to “keep that (expletive) on the battlefield and do not bring it into our communities.” “We have to find some reason for optimism and hope or else we consign ourselves to a future where nearly 40,000 people a year will lose their lives to gun violence and I cannot accept that,” O’Rourke said. El Paso, which has about 680,000 residents, is in West Texas and sits across the border from Juarez, Mexico. The city has become a focal

point of the immigration debate, drawing Trump in February to argue that walling off the southern border would make the U.S. safer, while city resident and O’Rourke led thousands on a protest march past the barrier of barbed-wire topped fencing and towering metal slats. O’Rourke stressed that border walls haven’t made his hometown safer. The city’s murder rate was less than half the national average in 2005, the year before the start of its border fence. Before the wall project started, El Paso had been rated one of the three safest major U.S. cities going back to 1997. Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project, also said the El Paso shooting suspect wasn’t on her group’s radar screen prior to the shooting. “We had nothing in our files on him,” she wrote in an email. “Scary how young these shooters have been. Almost too young to even build a footprint in the radical right.” This is the 21st mass killing in the United States in 2019, and the fifth public mass shooting. Before today, 96 people had died in mass killings in 2019 — 26 of them in public mass shootings. The A P / U S AT O D A Y / Northeastern University mass murder database tracks all U.S. homicides since 2006 involving of four or more people killed, not including the offender, over a short period of time regardless of weapon, location, victim-offender relationship or motive. The database shows that the median age of a public mass shooter is 28, significantly lower than the median age of a person who commits a mass shooting of their family. Since 2006, 11 mass shootings — not including today’s — have been committed by men who are 21 or younger.

Dem candidates back gun limits after shooting By Michelle Price and Kathleen Ronanye Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Democratic presidential candidates expressed outrage Saturday that mass shootings have becoming chillingly common nationwide and blamed the National Rifle Association and its congressional allies after a gunman opened fire at a shopping area near the Texas-Mexico border. “It’s not just today, it has happened several times this week. It’s happened here in Las Vegas where some lunatic killed 50 some odd people,” Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said as he and 18 other White House hopefuls were in Nevada to address the nation’s largest public employees union. “All over the world, people are looking at the United States and wondering what is going on? What is the mental health situation in America, where time after time, after time, after time, we’re seeing indescribable horror.” Sanders blamed Republican Senate leadership for being “more concerned about pleasing the NRA than listening to the vast majority of the American people” and said that President Donald Trump has a responsibility to support commonsense gun safety legislation.

“This has got to be a movement, politics or not, we’ve got to make ending this nightmare a movement before it happens to yet another community or another person dies.” Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.,

At least 20 people were killed amid back-to-school shopping in El Paso. A 21-year-old man was taken into custody, law enforcement officials said. Shortly after the shooting and before its death toll was widely reported, White House officials said Trump was briefed while spending the weekend at his New Jersey golf club. He conveyed his initial reaction on Twitter, writing that the shooting was “terrible” and that he was in close consultation with state officials. He turned to other topics, tweeting a note of encouragement to UFC fighter Colby Covington, a Trump supporter, and retweeting a pair of messages that furthered his recent argument that African Americans had flourished under his administration. The shooting was far more personal for former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, an El Paso native who represented the city in Congress for six years. He suspended

campaigning to fly home and “be with my family and be with my hometown.” Earlier, O’Rourke appeared shaken as he told the union forum he’d heard early reports that the shooter might have had a militarystyle weapon, saying the country needs to “keep that (expletive) on the battlefield. Do not bring it into our communities.” O’Rourke said the U.S. may require direct action, urgency and in some cases nonviolent civil disobedience, to make real change. “I believe in this country. I believe, at the end of the day, we’re going to be able to get this done,” he said, “but it’s going to be because of those people who force it to get done.” Former Vice President Joe Biden said that he tried unsuccessfully to call O’Rourke and told reporters, “Enough is enough.” “This is a sickness,” Biden said. “This is beyond anything that we should be tolerating.” He added:

“We can beat the NRA. We can beat the gun manufacturers.” A visibly frustrated Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar said: “I believe that the NRA have long dominated American politics to the point where they have stopped sensible legislation that would have prevented deaths and prevented killings. They have done it time and time again.” California Sen. Kamala Harris promised to use an executive action within her first 100 days of taking office to impose gun control. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker said, “This has got to be a movement, politics or not, we’ve got to make ending this nightmare a movement before it happens to yet another community or another person dies.” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted: “Far too many communities have suffered through tragedies like this already. We must act now to end our country’s gun violence epidemic.

Trump’s pick for intelligence chief withdraws

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s pick for national intelligence director, Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe, withdrew from consideration Friday after just five days as he faced growing questions about his experience and qualifications. The move underscored the uncertainty over his confirmation prospects. Democrats openly dismissed the Republican congressman as an unqualified partisan and Republicans offered only lukewarm and tentative expressions of support. The announcement will leave the intelligence community without a permanent, Senate-confirmed leader at a time when the U.S. government is grappling with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, the prospect of war with Iran and the anticipated efforts of Russia or other foreign governments to interfere in the American political system. In a tweet Friday, Trump said Ratcliffe had decided to stay in Congress so as to avoid “months of slander and libel.”

3 family members killed in sea cliff collapse ENCINITAS, Calif. — Three women killed when a Southern California sea cliff collapsed were members of a family gathered on a beach to celebrate one of them having survived breast cancer, authorities and relatives said Saturday. Anne Clave, 35, and her mother, Julie Davis, 65, died at hospitals after tons of sandstone were unleashed Friday at Grandview Beach, the San Diego County Medical Examiner said. A family email obtained Saturday by KNSD-TV identified the third victim as Elizabeth Cox, Clave’s aunt. The victims were part of a family gathering celebrating Cox surviving breast cancer, the email said. Cox died instantly at the scene, the email said. Her age wasn’t given. Clave “enriched the lives of all those around her with the joy and fun she brought to all,” the email said, and Davis was an “incredible grandmother.” The three women leave behind spouses, children, and many members of their extended families, the news station reported.

around the world Indian students, tourists ordered to leave Kashmir

SRINAGAR, India — Thousands of Indian students and visitors were fleeing Indian-controlled Kashmir on Saturday after the government ordered tourists and Hindu pilgrims visiting a Himalayan cave shrine “to curtail their stay” in the disputed territory, citing security concerns. Meanwhile, tensions flared along the highly militarized Line of Control that divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan as Pakistan accused India of using “cluster munitions” to target the civilian population, killing two people. Hundreds of Indian and foreign visitors, including some Hindu pilgrims, congregated outside the main terminal at the airport in Srinagar, the region’s main city, seeking seats on flights out of the region. Most were unlikely to get tickets, however, as authorities had yet to arrange additional flights, officials said. On Friday, Indian aviation authorities told airlines to be ready to operate additional flights from Srinagar to ferry pilgrims and tourists out, the Press Trust of India news agency reported. Tourists and pilgrims also took buses out of the region after authorities went to hotels in the tourist resorts of Pahalgam and Gulmarg on Friday evening telling them to leave the region. Authorities also bused out hundreds of Indian students from some colleges in Srinagar. The order on Friday cited the “prevailing security situation” and the “latest intelligence inputs of terror threats with specific targeting” of the annual Hindu pilgrimage as reasons for the advisory. — Associated Press

Summer orchestra concert series kicks off today By Joey Klecka Peninsula Clarion

The Summer Concert series returns for a weeklong event that features a bevy of talent with a particularly British sound. The Kenai Peninsula Orchestra will host the Summer Concert Series for a 23rd straight year Aug. 4-10 at various locales around the peninsula. The series began in 1997 as the Summer Strings Festival, and has since blossomed into a weeklong series that attracts some of Alaska’s brightest and most talented orchestral players. This year, a British composer theme adds a new touch to a concert series that explores different sounds each year. The week will feature a rotation of three orchestra ensembles from Southcentral Alaska, headed up by the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra performing a two-day, 70-piece orchestra gala concert.

“It’s a pretty massive undertaking,” said KPO director Tammy Vollom-Matturro. The week begins today at Faith Lutheran Church in Homer with the AKamerata Quartet performing under the direction of Dr. Oleg Proskurnya from Anchorage. AKamerata will also perform Monday at Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna, with both shows starting at 7:30 p.m. Proskurnya played as a guest soloist at last year’s concert series, performing a classical violin concerto, according to Vollom-Matturro. The midweek show gets started Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Kenai Senior Center when the Anchorage Bowl Chamber Orchestra takes the stage under the direction of Kyle Lindsey. That show will be free and open to the public. Vollom-Matturro said the show that the Anchorage Bowl Chamber Orchestra put on at the Kenai Senior Center in May provided an

early look at what is to be expected this week. “It was awesome, it was such cool music,” she said. “They do the classical classics … they play all sorts of modern themes too.” From there, it’s up to the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra to put a bow on the weeklong celebration of classical favorites, as the peninsula-based group will be joined by myriad other musicians from around the state to form a 70-piece orchestra. The gala concerts will be Friday, Aug. 9, at the Mariner Theater in Homer, and Saturday, Aug. 10, at the Renee C. Henderson Auditorium in Kenai, at 7:30 p.m. both nights. The two nights will also get the audience involved in a preconcert conversation at 6:45 p.m., which Vollom-Matturro said will engage folks in an intriguing discussion about the history and format of what they’ll be hearing. Vollom-Matturro also advised concertgoers to keep an eye on the

KPO’s Facebook page for additional showings that may spring up over the week. Friday and Saturday nights’ gala concerts open with the overture to The Wasps by Ralph Vaughan Williams, then will transition to movements from The Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar. After a brief intermission, the orchestra will treat the audience to the full version of The Planets, by Gustav Holst. Vollom-Matturro said The Planets piece will be the first time KPO has performed it in its entirety, something that the group has been anticipating for some time. “We did three movements of Holst about three years ago, when I was playing,” she said. “It’s a huge undertaking because it has an extended orchestra, there are some obscure instruments.” Vollom-Matturro said with the addition of a piccolo flute, a bass flute, a bass oboe and a harp, as well as a percussion section that

includes two timpani sets, and a treble choir just offstage, The Planets is expected to impress. “Doing this is a big undertaking because we’ve got to find these players,” Vollom-Matturro said, adding that the harpist is visiting from the Seattle Symphony. With each movement composed to inspire sounds of each planet in the solar system — there are seven movements because there were only seven known planets in existence in Holst’s time — the musical styles vary wildly from movement to movement. Vollom-Matturro said with the addition of the choir off stage, the finishing flair will be one to remember. “It’s just very heavenly sounding,” she said. “Not a melody you’ll be coming home singing.” Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for Crescendo Club members. Youth 18 and under are free.

Today in History Today is Sunday, Aug. 4, the 216th day of 2019. There are 149 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 4, 1977, President Jimmy Carter signed a measure establishing the Department of Energy. On this date: In 1790, the U.S. Coast Guard had its beginnings as President George Washington signed a measure authorizing a group of revenue cutters to enforce tariff and trade laws and prevent smuggling. In 1792, English romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley was born at Field Place near Horsham, England. In 1830, plans for the city of Chicago were laid out. In 1914, Britain declared war on Germany for invading Belgium; the United States proclaimed its neutrality in the mushrooming world conflict. In 1936, Jesse Owens of the United States won the second of his four gold medals at the Berlin Olympics as he prevailed in the long jump over German Luz Long, who was the first to congratulate him. In 1944, 15-year-old diarist Anne Frank was arrested with her sister, parents and four others by the Gestapo after hiding for two years inside a building in Amsterdam. (Anne and her sister, Margot, died at the BergenBelsen concentration camp.) In 1964, the bodies of missing civil rights workers Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney were found buried in an earthen dam in Mississippi. In 1972, Arthur Bremer was convicted and sentenced in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, to 63 years in prison for his attempt on the life of Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace (the sentence was later reduced to 53 years; Bremer was released from prison in 2007). In 1975, the Swedish pop group ABBA began recording their hit single “Dancing Queen” at Glen Studio outside Stockholm (it was released a year later). In 1987, the Federal Communications Commission voted 4-0 to abolish the Fairness Doctrine, which required radio and television stations to present balanced coverage of controversial issues. In 1993, a federal judge sentenced Los Angeles police officers Stacey Koon and Laurence Powell to 2 1/2 years in prison for violating Rodney King’s civil rights. In 1997, Teamsters went on a 15-day strike against United Parcel Service after talks broke down with the nation’s largest package delivery service. Jeanne Calment (zhahn kal-MAWN’), at age 122 the world’s oldest person, died at a retirement home in Arles, France. In 2004, former teacher Mary Kay Letourneau, convicted of having sex with a sixth-grade pupil, was released from a Washington state prison after 7 1/2 years behind bars. Ten years ago: North Korean leader Kim Jong Il pardoned American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee for entering the country illegally and ordered their release during a surprise visit by former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Taliban militants unleashed a wave of rockets at Kabul’s international airport and government buildings less than three weeks before Afghanistan’s presidential election. A gunman opened fire in a health club in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, killing three women before killing himself. Five years ago: On the first day of a U.S.-Africa summit in Washington, President Barack Obama announced $33 billion in commitments aimed at shifting U.S. ties with Africa beyond humanitarian aid and toward more equal economic partnerships. Israel and Hamas accepted an Egyptian cease-fire proposal meant to halt a bruising monthlong war that had claimed nearly 2,000 lives. James Brady, 73, the affable, witty press secretary who had survived a devastating head wound in the 1981 assassination attempt against President Ronald Reagan and undertook a personal campaign for gun control, died in Alexandria, Virginia. One year ago: A utility worker was killed in a vehicle-related accident near a Northern California wildfire, becoming the seventh person to die amid the immense blaze that had been burning for two weeks near Redding. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro dodged what officials described as an assassination attempt when drones armed with explosives detonated as he delivered a speech to hundreds of soldiers. Today’s Birthdays: Actress-singer Tina Cole is 76. Actor-comedian Richard Belzer is 75. Football Hall of Famer John Riggins is 70. Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is 64.

Bucs eliminate Oilers from playoffs Staff Report Peninsula Clarion

The underdog story ended Saturday for the Peninsula Oilers with a 4-0 loss to the Anchorage Bucs at Mulcahy Stadium. After avoiding elimination and forcing a winner-take-all showdown with a 4-2 win Friday, the fourth-seeded Oilers couldn’t find

the same magic and failed to extend their season Saturday against two of the toughest pitchers the club has faced this year. Bucs starter Mason Wells and closer Colton Rendon combined to pitch a shutout with seven strikeouts and five hits, while not allowing a base runner past second base until the final frame. Oilers head coach Kyle Brown

said he threw everything he had at the No. 1-seeded Bucs but ultimately the drain of the season took its toll. “I’m super proud of the kids for several reasons, first the amount of adversity they had to overcome,” Brown said, highlighting a difficult midseason stretch that saw a flurry of injuries hit the club. “To lose eight players in 10 days, they could’ve packed it up right

then,” he said. “That’s when we skidded, but they didn’t do that, they continued to work hard, play hard and play good competitive baseball. “We could’ve been a chirpy team, we could’ve responded to other teams’ antics, but we held our composure. I loved the maturity and energy and fight we had.” With a league-high 29 regularseason wins, the Bucs showed why

they were the best team in the ABL this year, returning to the Top of the World Series for a third straight year. They will face the Anchorage Glacier Pilots for the ABL title starting today in the best-of-three-game series.

From collecting foul balls to hitting them Whirlwind of success takes Steffensen from Oilers parking lot to batter’s box By Jeff Helminiak Peninsula Clarion

An excited kid came up to Paul Steffensen after a game this year with one of Steffensen’s foul balls. “I told him that used to be me,” said Steffensen, a 2017 graduate of Kenai Central High School. The moment crystalizes just how far and just how fast Steffensen has come as a baseball player. The Steffensen name has always been firmly attached to wrestling in Kenai. Stan, Paul’s father, is a three-time state champion in South Dakota, an All-American wrestler at Huron University (South Dakota) and a longtime wrestling coach at Kenai Central High School and Kenai Middle School. All four of the Steffensen children — Ellery, Hope, Paul and Daniel — have won national titles at freestyle, folkstyle and Greco-Roman. So Paul had just one season of Little League under his belt when he signed up to play baseball for Kenai Central as a freshman. Not having enough balls with which to practice, he would attend Oilers games and chase down foul balls. “It definitely made it easier to practice hitting,”

Steffensen said. “I didn’t have to stop and pick up balls as much.” After winning state wrestling titles as a freshman and sophomore, Steffensen left wrestling to pursue baseball. What followed was a head-spinning succession of success that ultimately led to Steffensen, in late April of this year, becoming to first player from the American Legion Twins program to sign to play at a Division I school. Steffensen will play at Tennessee Tech. Steffensen didn’t even play Legion ball until 2016, the summer after his junior year. The Twins would win state that year and Steffensen would be named MVP of the tournament. After more success with the Kardinals and Twins in 2017, Steffensen signed to play at Mesa Community College and began his career with a 26-game hitting streak, hitting .404 to take the Arizona Community College Athletic Association batting title. This season, Steffensen hit .319 and Mesa took second in the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II World Series. He then came back to play for his hometown Oilers, finishing a dizzying, five-year

journey from the kid collecting foul balls to the man hitting them. “Really?” said Oilers hitting coach Rolando Sanchez when informed of the journey. “I had no idea he only had that much baseball experience. I’m going to ask him about that tomorrow.” In 2018, both Twins general manager Lance Coz and former KCHS head coach John Kennedy told Oilers head coach Kyle Brown about Steffensen. Brown said Steffensen should get in touch, but it never happened because Steffensen wanted to spend the summer working and take a break from the game. He did manage to slip in games with the Twins between work shifts. Sanchez coaches at Benedictine University at Mesa, so Brown told his hitting coach to watch Steffensen this year and make sure Steffensen would fit in with the Oilers. “Rolando said he’d be a good fit and can play at this level,” Brown said. Steffensen was already fielding offers from other summer leagues, but when Sanchez reached out, Steffensen returned home. The 5-foot-9, 200-pounder played in 33 games during See hit, Page B4

Sanchez, 3 other Astros team up to no-hit Mariners HOUSTON (AP) — Aaron Sanchez looked like a reinvented pitcher in his Houston debut, throwing six stellar innings to start the Astros on a combined no-hitter Saturday night in their 9-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Sanchez was an All-Star in 2016 and led the American League in ERA, but he’s struggled badly this

season and had lost 13 straight decisions to lead the majors with 14 losses. Three days after he was acquired from Toronto at the trade deadline, the 27-year-old righthander teamed with Will Harris, Joe Biagini and Chris Devenski to shut down Seattle. It was the second time in less than a month the last-place Mariners

were no-hit by multiple pitchers. The Los Angeles Angels used two pitchers in a combined no-hitter July 12 against Seattle on a night when they honored late left-hander Tyler Skaggs by all wearing his No. 45 in their first home game since his death. Sanchez (4-14) struck out six, walked two and hit a batter in

his first victory since April 27 for Toronto. Seattle’s Marco Gonzales (12-9) allowed four runs in five innings.

TWINS 11, ROYALS 3 MINNEAPOLIS — Nelson Cruz hit three home runs in a game for the second time in 10 days,

powering AL Central-leading Minnesota to the victory. A day after he homered, doubled twice and drove in five runs, Cruz again had five RBIs. Cruz hit a two-run homer in the first inning, a solo drive in the second and a two-run homer in the See mlb, Page B2

Mawae, Bowlen, Brandt, Robinson enter Hall By Barry Wilner AP Pro Football Writer

CANTON, Ohio — Kevin Mawae never betrayed the lessons he learned when he first began playing football — flag football, no less. His dedication and perseverance as one the NFL’s greatest centers landed him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night. “I learned to love the preparation, the plays and the puzzle,” Mawae said. “I loved putting on my uniform and cleats. I learned to never step on the field without being ready to work.” Mawae was an outstanding center for three NFL teams, and a key union force during the 2011 lockout of players. His leadership, along with his talent and determination, made him a three-time All-Pro and eight-time Pro Bowler with the Seahawks, Jets and Titans, and the

center on the NFL’s AllDecade Team of the 2000s. Offensive lineman rarely should be judged by statistics, but consider that Mawae blocked for a 1,000-yard rusher in 13 of his 16 seasons — by five different running backs, capped by the NFL’s sixth 2,000-yard rushing performance, by Tennessee’s Chris Johnson in 2009, Mawae’s final season. Mawae, who was presented by his wife, Tracy, is the first player of Hawaiian descent and the second Polynesian member of the hall, following the late Junior Seau. His speech paid warm tribute to his family and the inspiration and love they provided him. “I knock on this door and I tell all of you,” he concluded in his speech, “I am home.” The late Pat Bowlen, whose Denver Broncos made more Super Bowls (seven, winning three) than they had losing seasons, was inducted after

Mawae. Under Bowlen’s leadership, Denver went 354-240-1 from 1984 through last season. He was the first owner in NFL history to oversee a team that won 300 games — including playoffs — in a span of three decades. On the league level, the highly respected Bowlen, who died in June, worked on several influential committees, including co-chairing the NFL Management Council and working on network TV contracts such as the league’s ground-breaking $18 billion deal in 1998. Bowlen once said the Hall of Fame is where legends go. He’s now there, with his children huddling around the bust on the stage, several of them patting it on the head. Mawae and Bowlen followed Gil Brandt and Johnny Robinson in being enshrined. Indeed, Brandt has been in

the NFL so long he scouted Robinson. Brandt was procuring talent for the Dallas Cowboys in their initial season of 1960 when Robinson came out of LSU as a running back and eventually became a star safety. Finally, in 2019, they are wearing gold jackets. “After all this time, I thought I had been forgotten,” Robinson said. “To receive that knock on the door ... was surreal to me.” Brandt paid tribute to his true calling: talent evaluation. “What you do in securing talent is the lifeblood of football,” he said. “Seeing that player that was something special ... or going to a D-3 campus and finding a diamond in the rough. I want all of you to look at my election into the Hall of Fame as a tip of the cap to you.” See hall, Page B3

US women topple Irish


PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Departing head coach Jill Ellis and the U.S. women’s national team opened their post-World Cup domestic Victory Tour with a 3-0 victory over Ireland on Saturday night. Tobin Heath, Lindsey Horan and Carli Lloyd scored first-half goals on a celebratory evening at the Rose Bowl to kick off a five-city tour bringing the champions to their eager stateside fans. They’ll also stop in Philadelphia, St. Paul and Charlotte before finishing in Chicago on Oct. 3 to conclude Ellis’ 5 1/2 years in charge.


Ellis announced her decision Tuesday to walk away as the first two-time women’s World Cup champion coach, and this win improved her record to 103-7-18 in the U.S.’ top job since 2014. The Americans’ new boss will have a compressed time frame to prepare the team for the Tokyo Olympic tournament, which will be in the semifinals at this time next year. “I just felt the timing was right,” Ellis said Friday. “The timing is right for whoever the new coach is. The timing was right for me on a personal level with my family.”

Covington tops Lawler NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Colby Covington didn’t need to wait for another invite to the White House to chat with President Donald Trump. The UFC star had a direct line to the president and received a congratulatory call after his latest dominant victory inside the octagon. Covington wagged his tongue, landed his strikes, and coasted to a unanimous decision over Robbie Lawler in the 170-pound main event fight of a rare Saturday afternoon card

at the Prudential Center. Trump’s two adult sons, Don Jr. and Eric, rooted on Covington from cageside seats and snapped pics throughout the day with several well-wishers. Covington scaled the cage and smiled as he pointed toward the brothers after securing a 50-44 50-45, 50-45 victory. Covington visited Trump in the White House last year and the president sent a pre-fight tweet wishing luck for the “Make America Great Again” loyalist.

Ostrander earns Female Athlete of Year at Boise Staff Report Peninsula Clarion

Recently turned pro runner Allie Ostrander picked up one more award from her illustrious career at Boise State University, picking up the Boise State 201819 Female Athlete of the Year honor Friday. Ostrander put an end to her collegiate career June 30, running her final steeplechase event in Bronco colors with a 13th-place result among a loaded field at the Prefontaine Classic at Stanford. Just two days later, Ostrander announced she would turn pro, and subsequently joined Brooks Running to become a member of the Brooks Beasts Track Club. On July 28, Ostrander finished fourth in her first pro race in the steeplechase at the USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships,

earning a spot on Team USA for the World Championships in Doha, Qatar, in late September. The 2015 Kenai Central grad crafted a record-breaking career for the Boise State Broncos. Ostrander is the only three-time Division I national champion in school history, winning three straight 3,000-meter steeplechase crowns, and was a regular contender for victories in the cross-country season. In her senior season, Ostrander earned first-team All-America honors in crosscountry and indoor track (in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters) and was named West Region Women’s Athlete of the Year in cross country and the West Region Track Athlete of the Year. Ostrander was also named a semifinalist for The Bowerman award, college track and field’s highest honor.

sixth. He didn’t get a chance at a record-tying fourth home run — he was left on deck when Jorge Polanco grounded out to end the eighth.

NEW YORK — DJ LeMahieu hit a pair of home runs off Chris Sale in the opener of New York’s doubleheader sweep, and Mike Tauchman had a tiebreaking two-run single in the seventh inning of the nightcap. The AL East-leading Yankees, however, saw two more players get hurt. Slugger Edwin Encarnación broke his right wrist when hit by a pitch from Josh Smith in the eighth inning of the opener, and outfielder Aaron Hicks hurt his elbow on a throw in the second game. There was no immediate word on how long they would be sidelined. Boston’s losing streak reached seven, its longest since 2015. Boston is 59-54, with as many losses as its World Series champions last year (108-54).

DODGERS 4, PADRES 1 LOS ANGELES — Walker Buehler struck out 15 in his second career complete game, leading the Dodgers to the victory. Buehler (10-2) reached double digits in strikeouts for the fourth time this season, all since June 3. The 15 strikeouts were his most since he had 16 in a complete-game victory over Colorado on June 21. Justin Turner hit his 17th homer as Los Angeles finished off San Diego in

BRAVES 5, REDS 4 ATLANTA — Atlanta star Ronald Acuña Jr. hit an RBI single off Robert Stephenson with two outs in the 10th inning. The Braves thought they had the game just about won in the eighth when Acuña drew a tiebreaking bases-loaded walk from Michael Lorenzen. But then Shane Greene, the new closer making his Braves debut after being acquired in a trade with Detroit, blew a save opportunity in the ninth.

METS 7, PIRATES 5 PITTSBURGH — Wilson Ramos hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning, sending New York to the win after Marcus Stroman had a shaky debut with the Mets. Stroman, acquired in a trade with Toronto last Sunday, allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings, but received a no-decision after the Mets pounced on Pittsburgh’s bullpen.

CUBS 4, BREWERS 1 CHICAGO — Cole Hamels pitched five shutout innings for the Cubs after spending five weeks on the injured list, and Albert Almora Jr. connected for a tiebreaking homer. Chicago lost All-Star catcher Willson Contreras to a right hamstring injury in the seventh. He’ll undergo an MRI on Monday.

RAYS 8, MARLINS 6 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Eric Sogard homered twice and finished with a careerhigh five RBIs, powering Tampa Bay to the victory. Willy Adames and Austin

Meadows also connected as Tampa Bay won for the seventh time in eight games. Nick Anderson (3-4), who was acquired in a trade with Miami on Wednesday, pitched a perfect eighth for the win, and Emilio Pagan finished for his ninth save.

INDIANS 7, ANGELS 2 CLEVELAND — Francisco Lindor and Jason Kipnis homered during Cleveland’s five-run fifth inning. Carlos Santana added a solo shot in the eighth, helping Cleveland to its third win in four games. Adam Plutko (4-2) allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings.

DIAMONDBACKS 18, NATIONALS 7 PHOENIX — Eduardo Escobar hit two of Arizona’s five homers and drove in a career-high seven runs. Nick Ahmed, Jake Lamb and Alex Avila also went deep as Arizona knocked Stephen Strasburg around for the second time this season. Strasburg (14-5) entered with a seven-game winning streak, but gave up three homers and nine runs before leaving with two outs in the fifth inning.

ATHLETICS 8, CARDINALS 3 OAKLAND, Calif. — Oakland’s Mike Fiers took a shutout into the sixth inning for his eighth consecutive win. Pinch-hitter Chad Pinder delivered a three-run homer to keep the A’s unbeaten in three games against the Cardinals this season. Stephen Piscotty added two hits against his former team and made a leaping catch at the outfield wall to take away a hit from Matt Wieters in the fifth. Paul Goldschmidt singled and doubled to extend his

hitting streak to 11 games for St. Louis. Dakota Hudson (10-6) got the loss.

RANGERS 5, TIGERS 4 ARLINGTON, Texas — Rougned Odor homered with two outs in the 10th inning, lifting Texas to the victory. Odor’s opposite-field drive into the Detroit bullpen in left-center came against Nick Ramirez (5-4). That was a pitch after third base umpire Dave Rackley ruled Odor was able to check his swing on 2-2 pitch.

ORIOLES 6, BLUE JAYS 4 BALTIMORE — Trey Mancini homered and drove in four runs, and Baltimore stopped Toronto’s five-game win streak. After Toronto pulled even with two runs in the top of the seventh, Baltimore restored its lead in the bottom half. The first two batters reached against Buddy Boshers (0-1) before Hanser Alberto hit an RBI single off Justin Shafer and Mancini added a runscoring groundout.

PHILLIES 3, WHITE SOX 2 PHILADELPHIA — Aaron Nola pitched seven strong innings for Philadelphia, and Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins homered. Nola (10-2) allowed one run and three hits with 10 strikeouts and two walks. He lowered his ERA to 1.91 over his last nine starts

GIANTS 6, ROCKIES 5 DENVER — Pinch-hitter Buster Posey came through with a two-run double in the eighth inning to rally San Francisco to the road win. Scooter Gennett homered for the Giants, and Pablo Sandoval had three hits.

Elliott seeks repeat at Watkins Glen By John Kekis AP Sports Writer

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Chase Elliott is back at Watkins Glen International where he won for the first time at NASCAR’s top level. Rest assured that last year’s victory on the speedy road course in New York’s Finger Lakes region is not on his mind. “Everybody wants to talk about last year and that’s great,” Elliott said Saturday before qualifying. “I’m glad last year happened, for sure. Proud of it. But we celebrated it when it was time to celebrate it and now is not really the time to celebrate it. “It’s out of my system. It’s time to come back and try to run good,” said Elliott, fourth to Hendrick Motorsports teammate Alex Bowman in the first practice. “I felt like we had an OK first practice, but we have some work to do. It’s tough. Everybody’s real close.” Not close enough to Elliott. He captured the pole position for Sunday’s race, outdueling Hendrick teammate William Byron for the top spot. Last year, Elliott had been mired in a confounding losing streak since the start of his Cup career in 2016. His victory at The Glen came in his 99th Cup start and assured him of his first spot in the playoffs. It also gave him a big dose of confidence after leading a race-high 52 laps, outdueling Kyle Busch to win the second stage, and holding off Martin Truex Jr. at the end. In the postseason, Elliott won twice more — at Dover and Kansas — though he failed to make the final four. “More than anything, being fast last year was nice,” said Elliott, who passed Busch in a scintillating second segment as the crowd roared and didn’t have to worry about him at the end because of a faulty fuel probe that took Busch out of contention after a dominating opening segment. “That’s what helps more than anything. Just knowing that we had some decent pace. I think that’s the most important thing. If you have pace, then the rest of it can come. Hopefully,

we can have that again.” Elliott has already qualified for the postseason with his win at Talladega in May, but after four straight topfives he hasn’t had a top-10 finish in the No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet since June at Pocono, seven races ago. The race over the 2.45mile natural terrain layout at Watkins Glen on Sunday offers a chance to gain some momentum after that tough stretch. “The frustrating ones are the ones you can control. Making mistakes that we shouldn’t make and I shouldn’t make. Just cleaning that stuff up,” said Elliott, who somehow avoided a crash in morning practice when Matt Tifft spun in front of him. “It happens. I can’t say I’m bogged down by it, but I certainly want to get things going on the right path. We still have time to do that. This would be as good a place as any to get things going in the right direction.” Unlike the relaxed surroundings in California at the road course at Sonoma in June, the atmosphere at Watkins Glen offers a different vibe as the playoffs loom. There are only five races remaining in the regular season, and the points are bunchedup at the cutoff line. Ryan Newman is ranked 16th and tied in points with Clint Bowyer, and lurking 12 points behind them is seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson. The top 16 drivers make the postseason and Johnson has never failed to qualify for the playoffs since they were instituted 15 years ago. Just behind Johnson are Daniel Suarez, Paul Menard, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Chris Buescher, and among the four only Suarez has not won a Cup race. But Suarez has been stout at Watkins Glen with an average finish of 3.5 and the third-best driver rating. “I’ve learned in this sport that you can never be too comfortable,” said StewartHaas Racing’s Aric Almirola, two points behind Elliott but without a win. “There are so many people hovering right around that cutoff line and just outside that cutoff line that can win on any given weekend.”

Shibuno leads Women’s British Open MILTON KEYNES, England (AP) — Hinako Shibuno’s dream debut continued Saturday in the Women’s British Open when she shot a 5-under 67 to take a twostroke lead into the final round. The 20-year-old Shibuno, a rookie on the Japan LPGA Tour who is making her LPGA Tour and major championship debut, birdied six of the final holes in the round to get to 14-under 202. “It’s definitely exceeding my expectations,” said Shibuno, nicknamed Smiling Cinderella. “I came in wanting to make the cut, so right now I feel like I’m doing something very incredible.” Overnight leader Ashleigh Buhai started with a threeshot lead at Woburn Golf Club and stretched it to five when Shibuno bogeyed Nos. 5 and 9. “I was pretty upset after the three-putt bogey on the ninth,” Shibuno said. “But after the second shot on the 10th hole, I was able to bring myself back.” Buhai stumbled with three bogeys in five holes. The 30-year-old South African, who has never won on the LPGA Tour, had a 72 to drop to second at 12 under. “I played my first nine holes probably the best ballstriking I could have had. Hit really good shots,” Buhai said. “Turned 2 under, birdied my

Let the three-putt rattle me on No. 12. “I’m still here, two shots behind going into the final round playing in the final group.

Wyndham Championship GREENSBORO, N.C. — The rounds are starting to repeat for Byeong Hun An: No bogeys, a bunch of birdies and more time atop the Wyndham Championship leaderboard. An shot a 4-under 66 on Saturday for a one-stroke lead after three rounds at the PGA Tour’s final event before the

playoffs. An, who was at 17-under 193, has held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds and has yet to play a hole worse than par. The 27-year-old South Korean with three international victories has put himself in position to claim his first win on tour. “It feels similar to yesterday, to be fair,” An said. “I had some nice shots here and there, but scrambled well today. Another bogey-free (round). I’m quite happy with it — a 66 out here, and I have a lead.” Former Wyndham winner Webb Simpson and Brice Garnett were tied for second, with Simpson shooting a 65 and Garnett a 66. Ryan Armour was 15 under following a 65. “One shot is basically nothing,” An said. “It’s not that big of a lead. It’s just one shot.” Overall, it was yet another

low-scoring day at Sedgefield Country Club. For a while midway through An’s round, six players were tied for the lead at 13 under. “I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody shot 8, 9, 10 under, a guy who’s within striking distance,” Simpson said. “I’ve got to keep the pedal down, and if I don’t shoot a low one, I’m not going to win.” An started to get some separation from the crowd with three birdies in the fourhole span from Nos. 5-8, moving to 16 under. Then came his best shot of the day, a 50-foot birdie putt on the par-4 14th. He closed with four straight pars. Simpson — a native North Carolinian who named his daughter Wyndham after his first career victory came here in 2011 — strung together three birdies around a bogey midway through his back nine to move to 16 under.

Warriors give Green 4 years, $100 million By Tim Reynolds AP Basketball Writer

Draymond Green entered this offseason vowing that the Golden State Warriors would remain a contender for NBA titles. His opinion hasn’t changed. Green and the Warriors have agreed on the terms of a four-year extension worth nearly $100 million, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Saturday. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal was unsigned, though that was expected to be completed imminently. ESPN first reported the agreement, citing Green’s agent, Rich Paul. Green’s new deal will start with the 2020-21 season, so he is under contract through 2023-24. Klay Thompson signed a five-year, $190 million extension with the Warriors last month, and Stephen Curry is under contract through the 2021-22 season, so three major pieces of the Warriors’ half-decade of success are now locked up for at least three more years. “I think everybody thinks it’s kind of the end of us,” Green said in June, after the Warriors lost a six-game series to Toronto in the NBA Finals and saw their run of two straight titles come to an end. “But that’s just not smart. We’re not done yet. ... But, yeah, I hear a lot of that

noise, ‘It’s the end of a run’ and all that jazz. I don’t see it happening though. We’ll be back.” The Warriors added AllStar guard D’Angelo Russell this summer, while losing two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant to Brooklyn as well as parting way with Andre Iguodala, DeMarcus Cousins and Shaun Livingston. So in many ways it will be a different Golden State team this coming season, when the five-time defending West ern Conference champion begins playing its home games in the new Chase Center in San Francisco after moving from Oakland’s Oracle Arena. But the core — Curry, Green and, when he returns from his ACL injury, Thompson — will still be around. “Our core — myself, Klay, Draymond, adding D’Angelo and a lot of hungry, young guys trying to prove themselves in the league — it will look different in terms of the lineups and things like that,” Curry said last month. “But the expectations of how we play and that championshipcaliber basketball, that’s going to be for us always be the motivation and the challenge.” Over the past five seasons, the Warriors have won 77% of their games, including playoffs — a total of 399 wins, 100 more than any other NBA team in that span.

Servin broke it up with a one-out single. Brown said the Oilers struggled to hone in Wells’ arm motion, which produces a challenging cutter. “Mr. Wells from pitch one was absolutely dialed in,” Brown said. “He was just absolutely lights out, and his cutter beat us.” Against the Oilers this year, Wells went 4-0 with a 1.42 ERA, including consecutive scoreless starts on July 28 and Saturday’s playoff decider. The game was a tense pitchers duel over the first five frames. Brown answered Anchorage’s starter nomination with Oilers right-hander Bryan Woo, the 2019 ABL Prospect of the Year who struck out seven over five innings of one-hit ball. Woo was pulled from a scoreless game in the bottom of the sixth with one on and no outs, and ended up with a run scored on his sheet. “Those first five innings were absolutely fantastic,” Brown said. “Those innings were electric.” Connor McCord finished the game for the Oilers and took the loss with three innings of relief, giving up three runs on four hits and four

Witten believes he can still play By Schuyler Dixon AP Pro Football Writer

OXNARD, Calif. — Upon further review, Jason Witten’s snazzy one-handed catch in the back corner of the end zone wasn’t a touchdown, because he apparently bobbled the ball while he was trying to get his second foot down. But hey, there’s no replay in training camp. And whether it counted was beside the point for the tight end who came out of retirement and is

walks, with four strikeouts. The Bucs broke the scoreless game with a run in the sixth, then added two in the seventh and one more in the eighth. In the sixth, consecutive singles by Taishi Nakawake and Chad Castillo put runners on the corners, and Blake Paugh brought in a run on a sac fly to put Anchorage up 1-0. The big smash came in the bottom of the seventh when Justin Cook ripped a two-run homer over the fence for a 3-0 lead. Cook brought home another run in the eighth, grounding into a double play after the Bucs loaded the bases with no outs. Perhaps the Oilers’ best chance to score came in the sixth when a pair of two-out singles from Travis Bohall and Bobby Goodloe put two on, but Connor McCord couldn’t bring them home after flying out. The Oilers put two runners in scoring position with one out in the top of the ninth, starting with a walk issued to Skyler Messinger and a single by Servin, but Rendon got out of the jam with two straight outs to end the game and send the Oilers packing. Servin ended up 2 for 4 to lead the Oilers from the plate Saturday, while Bohall, Goodloe and Jonathan Villa each picked up a base hit as well.

poised to set the club record with a 16th season for the Dallas Cowboys. Witten believes he can still play at 37, and is looking for any chance to show it. Before the catch that apparently wasn’t, Witten had another nice grab for a TD that did count, which set up a couple of declarations after the sixth practice of camp. “Just an old guy trying to make a play here and there,” Witten said Friday — and then was asked how much he was enjoying his return to

Friday’s Game 2 win kept the Oilers alive in the ABL best-of-three semifinal series and forced a winnertake-all Game 3 Saturday. The key Friday for the Oilers was pitching eight consecutive shutout innings after giving up two firstinning runs. “It’s huge,” said Brown, who earned his first postseason win with the club. “We know the Bucs have a lot of offense, so for us to be able to blank them over eight frames, get some big double plays when we needed them, it’s huge. It’s confidence.” Eric Reardon shook off the wobbly start to go six innings, getting four strikeouts and three walks while scattering four hits. The Peninsula bullpen duo of Jonathan Carlos and Heath Olive then wrapped it up with three combined scoreless frames. Carlos pitched two no-hit innings with three walks, and Olive earned the save with a strikeout and one hit. “It was all hands on deck, ready to go,” he said. “It’s must win, do or die, and they understood the urgency.” The offense came through for the Oilers in the later innings, as Connor McCord tied the game on an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth and Bobby Goodloe gave Peninsula

training camp, the part of the year players generally dread the most. “This isn’t just to come out here and be a cheerleader and ride off into the sunset,” he said. “It’s to help this team win games in whatever way I can. That’s why I’m enjoying it.” Witten’s return after a year in the “Monday Night Football” TV booth came with talk of a reduced role for an 11-time Pro Bowler who took nearly every snap in his first 15 seasons with the Cowboys.

the lead in the seventh on a single. McCord added an insurance run on a sac fly. Brown said Reardon looked uncomfortable on the mound to start the game, but by the third inning, the Rutgers University lefty was cruising. “Our guys didn’t panic, they picked up Reardon,” he said. “They showed the willingness to win and they didn’t check out.” Putting Carlos on the mound in the seventh served the Long Beach State freshman well, as Brown said Carlos was used more as a setup role in college. Olive’s ninth inning went quick, as a two-out double by Kyle Hopson was the only blemish on his record. “Luckily for us, he was on,” Brown said about Olive. Goodloe put the Oilers on the board in the third on an RBI single, and finished the game 2 for 3 with two RBIs. McCord’s game-tying single in the sixth and sac fly in the seventh gave him two RBIs as well, as he finished 1 for 3. Skyler Messinger hit 2 for 4. Brown said McCord’s long sac fly was hit hard enough to nearly warrant a home run. “If that was in Kenai, that ball would’ve been in the apartment complex across the street there,” he said.

He also has made a point of deferring to others when talk turns to leadership. It’s just hard to get around what Witten brings in terms of experience when the nextoldest tight end on the Dallas roster is 11 years younger. “There’s so many things that, whether it be active or passive, that I’ve taken from his game in the last few months,” said 22-year-old Dalton Schultz, in his second season. “The influence that he’s had on the room so far is pretty heavy.”

Carlos induced a crucial double play to get two important outs in the eighth against the Bucs, then struck out heavy hitter Blake Paugh to get out of the inning. With the gloomy financial state of the Oilers putting the 2020 season in doubt, Brown said the hope is that Saturday’s loss wasn’t the last in the Oilers’ foreseeable future. In securing the team’s first playoff win in three years, Brown said Saturday’s postgame atmosphere was dulled by the players’ return to their respective colleges, where they will still play a spring season in 2020. “It finally set in once the game was over, everyone gave each other a hug, we took a team photo,” he said. “And after that, they realized, ‘Wow, we’re done’. I told them, you guys should be excited, you’ve been up here a long time, 10 weeks. “It probably won’t be until about two weeks from now when it really sets in. … I think they’ll miss that.” Brown said he would welcome a return to the Oilers for a fourth year in 2020, if the team can produce the funds. “The (Oilers) have changed me to be a better coach, a better community member, a better person,” he said. “The peninsula will always be a part of me. It’s something I’ll treasure for the rest of my life.”

Creativity, functionality both mat ter in decor By Kim Cook Associated Press


o bold. Stay practical. Think long-term. These are among the tips offered by interior decorators for creating a fresh, fun — even inspiring — playroom for kids.

Foster creativity “I love bold choices in a playroom,” says Mel Bean, a designer in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In one client’s theater room, for example, “we used a high-contrast carpet as a real show-stopper,” she says. “Another space uses black and white walls and floors as a backdrop for colorful art supplies, chairs, books and paintings.” Yet another playroom she is working on “includes a stunning, greenmarble-slabbed wet bar with navy cabinetry, multiple television screens, and something for all ages, from a play kitchen to gaming.” Los Angeles designer Kate Lester has a similar approach: “Don’t take the space too seriously — have fun with it,” she says. “Wallpaper the whole room, or paint the ceiling.” Lester favors a light-filled palette and livable furniture. She recently completed a safari-themed play space for a family with 6 and 8 year olds. Papier-mache animal-head sculptures adorn the walls, which are covered in a cool, black-andwhite zebra print. Peel-and-stick carpet tiles make for soft lounging, and individual squares can be replaced if they get stained. The vibe is easygoing, yet the aesthetic is chic. Lester recommends a “high/

low” formula: investing in a good built-in storage piece, for example, and then including affordable pieces from Target, IKEA, etc. She likes to buy fun, printable art online, as well. Bean recently completed a teenfriendly room in Grand Lake, Oklahoma, with multiple bunk beds and a communal gathering space. Jenny Reimold, a designer and former teacher, likes to create playrooms that contain both imaginative spaces and opportunities for learning. She’ll bring in pieces like an industrial-look storage container with labeled basket liners, so kids can store their reading and writing materials. As in a classroom, she’ll designate areas in a room for art and imaginative play, and include pieces like a wooden lemonade stand.

Keep things functional Hardiness matters when furnishing a playroom. Lester puts removable floor tiles in almost every kids’ playroom she designs. They’re a durable and affordable alternative to a traditional rug, she says, and “can be laid out in custom designs.” There are also removable vinyl tiles in a variety of patterns; just peel and stick. She cautions homeowners to think twice about whether things that look cool are actually practical. “An 8-by-10-inch chalk wall may look cool on Instagram, but how does it work if you have three toddlers and white sofas?” she asks. “Integrating wow-factor that’s also functional is a must.” Mixed storage is always helpful, with open bins and drawers.

Amy Bartlam / Kate Lester

This undated photo provided by Hermosa Beach, California-based designer Kate Lester shows a safari-themed playroom designed by Lester near Los Angeles. A soothing palette and unexpected artsy elements like the animal head wall art and Marley + Malek Kids wallpaper assure the space will grow with the kids. Lester says she and her team use removable floor tiles like these on almost all their projects. They’re rugged and washable.

“Rolling bins are great under a window seat — they can be rolled out for play, then filled up with toys and rolled back under the seat,” says designer Jess Cooney of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. She’s fine with that chalkboard wall, but advises getting chalk pens to avoid dust. She also recommends performance fabrics, such as indoor/ outdoor rugs, in craft areas. “They can be bleached, or hosed off outside,” she says. For teens and older kids, being plugged in is key. Cooney tries to incorporate connectivity for video, music and gaming in a stylish but practical way, housing all the tech equipment in a closet that little ones can’t get to, and having one

universal remote for the TV, so you can control the content.

Room to grow Plan for the future use of the space. “Give the room the ability to grow and transition with your children,” says Lester. She suggests “play tables that can turn into homework stations, or pin boards that can display art but also calendars and schedules.” Wallpaper choices these days include stylized and sophisticated prints that work for kids’ rooms and also any other room in the home. And consider furniture that kids can grow into too: “A pull-out sofa is great for sleepovers down the

road as kids grow,” says Cooney. While some kid-size furniture can be fun, include normal-size furnishings, like sofas and media units. “Keep the more expensive pieces in adult-scale,” says Lester. “This will not only make the space feel larger, but you won’t have to replace them as your kids grow. Also, sitting on a mini sofa isn’t fun for anyone over 5.” Likewise, Cooney prefers neutral colors for key pieces to avoid too young a look in the playroom. “Being able to change the wall color and throw pillows down the road to transform the space into a teen lounge, without buying all new furniture, is important,” she says.

U.S. is thought to have added a solid 163K jobs in July By Josh Boak Associated Press

WASHINGTON — U.S. employers are thought to have sustained a steady pace of hiring in July, a reassuring sign for an economy that’s endured a series of ups and downs. Economists have forecast that the government will report that 163,000 jobs were added in July, according to data provider FactSet. This would be roughly in line with the average monthly gain of 172,000 so far this year, though below the 224,000 jobs added in June. The unemployment rate is believed to have remained at 3.7% for a second straight month, close to a 50-year low. The economy’s overall growth, along with consumer spending, has been solid. But business

investment has been declining, home sales have weakened and manufacturers have shown signs of struggling. Despite the economy’s resilience, the Federal Reserve on Wednesday cut its benchmark interest rate for the first time in a decade to try to counter the impact of President Donald Trump’s trade wars, stubbornly low inflation and global weakness. One day later, Trump announced plans to tax an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports beginning in September. In the meantime, with the decade-long economic expansion now the longest on record, some employers appear to be running out of workers to hire. The average monthly job gain has dropped by 63,000 compared with the first six months of 2018. The

bulk of the decline has come from the construction, manufacturing and mining and logging sectors, according to Martha Gimbel, director of economic research at the Indeed Hiring Lab. Though it is growing consistently, the economy appears to be sliding into a slower phase. The gross domestic product — the total output of goods and services produced in the United States — grew at a decent if unspectacular 2.1% annual rate in the April-June quarter, down from a 3.1% pace in the January-March period. Consumer spending increased at a 4.3% annual rate and helped propel much of the growth. But business capital investment declined for the first time in three years, a likely sign that Trump’s aggressive use of tariffs against has

slowed corporations’ expansion plans. Pay gains also appear to have stalled, even though lower unemployment has historically boosted worker pay. Wages and benefits have risen 2.7% over the past 12 months, down slightly from the 2.9% gain for last year, the Labor Department said. Home sales have fallen as high prices have kept many people out despite the benefits of low mortgage rates and job gains. Sales of existing homes have tumbled 2.2% over the past 12 months, according to the National Association of Realtors. Factories have also been coping with a slowdown. In part, that’s because the global economy has weakened and the president’s tariffs on hundreds of billions of

dollars’ worth of goods — and threats to add more — have disrupted supply chains. The Fed said this month that manufacturing output has improved just 0.4% from a year ago after having declined over the past six months. There are signs, though, that consumers are optimistic. The Conference Board’s index of consumer confidence last month reached its best reading since November. A higher percentage of Americans anticipate pay raises in the next six months. Indeed, spending at restaurants and bars has increased 4.2% yearto-date, according to government reports. And while traditional store retailers have faced hardships, online stores have prospered: Non-store retailers have enjoyed a 10.6% jump in sales.

Topiary tips: When you want shrubs to double as sculpture By Lee Reich Associated Press

Topiary is the art of growing trees and shrubs as living sculptures — cubes, spheres, obelisks, animal shapes or combinations of these. The tradition has flourished in various places at different times, but in modern gardens, topiary is rare, unless you count our foundation plantings of clipped yews and junipers — “gumdrop” or “dot-dash” landscaping along home foundations.

Suggested plants Only certain plants are suitable for pruned topiary. (Topiaries created with wire frames “plugged” with hens-and-chicks plants or embraced by vining plants are a different story, for another time.) The ideal topiary plant is slow-growing, tolerant of repeated pruning, and able to re-sprout from older wood. Especially for smaller topiaries viewed at close range, small leaves are needed to create a surface with a crisp edge. If possible, select a species

or variety whose natural shape approximates its intended shape: Densa yew for a low sphere, or Pyramidalis yew for an obelisk, as examples. Evergreens generally are used for topiary, but occasionally a deciduous plant such as English hawthorn or European beech is used. A drawback to a deciduous topiary, of course, is that it is bare in winter (although beech does not shed its dead leaves until spring). Deciduous plants generally grow more exuberantly than do evergreens, so also require more diligence to keep growth in check. Many species of evergreens have been used for topiary. The quintessential ones are yew and boxwood. Some other suitable plants include arborvitae, hemlock, holly and rosemary.

Developing your shape In most cases, begin shaping your plant while it is young. You could, however, carve a shape out of an old overgrown yew, much as you would out of wood or stone, because yew grows so densely and sprouts so freely from old wood. Or maybe a growing plant will

Keeping in shape

This undated photo shows a row of yews along a house foundation in New Paltz, N.Y. With dense, small leaves and readiness to resprout from pruning cuts, yews are easily pruned as a topiary — in this case as a giant caterpillar.

suggest a form that you could then develop. You might even juxtapose two plants, or let one grow up through the other to create, for example, a pedestal on which sits a verdant animal. In any case, topiary lends itself more to bold shapes than to intricate designs whose details are swallowed up between prunings. Site your topiary so that it receives good light on all sides, for dense growth throughout.

Most young topiary plants that are still in their formative stage need nothing more than frequent shearing or clipping off of the ends of stems in order to encourage dense branching. Clipping individual stems is the preferred method for plants with large leaves because shearing would mangle individual leaves. Obviously, where a stem protrudes in the direction where you want growth, leave it.

Once a topiary is fully grown and shaped, it needs pruning at least once a year, two or three times a year in some cases. Where a plant needs only once-a-year pruning and is reliably cold-hardy, prune just after midsummer. By then, the spring flush of growth has ceased, and there is less chance that pruning will stimulate regrowth before the following spring. Cut freehand, or use a guide to make sure your topiary is not gradually changing shape over the years. A guide is also useful when you have more than one matching topiary. If you cut freehand, step back frequently to check and admire your work. What is to be done with a neglected topiary? Severe cuts may be needed to stimulate growth within the plant. Repair a leafless hole by widening it, cutting old wood around the hole back to healthy wood. If severe cuts are needed, renovation is possible only if the plant is one capable of sprouting from old, perhaps leafless, wood. Otherwise, start again with a new plant.

Once a retail shrine, flagship stores lose their shine By Anne D’Innocenzio Associated Press

NEW YORK — It used to be considered the retailer’s crown jewel — a large format store on a swank corridor that showed off the best of what a brand had to offer. But now the so-called flagship store is disappearing from highprofile shopping thoroughfares like Manhattan’s Madison Avenue and Chicago’s Magnificent Mile because of skyrocketing rents and the shift to online shopping. Over the last year or so, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Lord & Taylor and Polo Ralph Lauren have closed their flagship stores on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. Abercrombie announced in May that it was closing three more of its big locations — an Abercrombie store in Milan, an Abercrombie store in Fukuoka, Japan and a Hollister-branded store in Manhattan’s SoHo area. The announcement came after the teen retailer shut down flagships in Hong Kong and Copenhagen. Other retailers are reimagining the flagship concept instead of abandoning it altogether. Nike, for instance, opened a massive store on Fifth Avenue late last year that doesn’t have any cash registers. It lets shoppers see details of items displayed on a mannequin by scanning the QR code and then having those items delivered to a fitting room or a designated pickup spot. Levi Strauss & Co.’s new flagship in Manhattan’s Time Square features larger dressing

rooms with call buttons and tailors who can add trims and patches to customers’ jeans. Those still clinging to the old concept, however, are having a harder time. The latest victim could be Barneys New York, which opened its 10-story Madison Avenue store in 1993 and became a cultural icon in luxury shopping but now risks closure. High rents and a dramatic shift toward online shopping are pressuring it to evaluate restructuring options, including possible bankruptcy, according to a source close to the matter who asked to remain anonymous because the discussions are confidential. Joseph Aquino, who runs his namesake real estate services firm, says the days of the shop-tilyou drop mentality on Madison Avenue popularized by the HBO popular series of the 1990s “Sex in the City” are over. “She was 45 and now she is 65… She isn’t shopping like she was 45,” Aquino said. “We are in the phase where a lot of younger shoppers don’t want to go the high street. They sit around and buy online and that’s what we are fighting against.” The concept of a flagship store is more than a century old and used to be limited to retailers’ biggest store — one in their first or most prominent location. But in the last 20 years, a flagship store frenzy took hold and retailers from Gap to H&M looked at them as a must-have shrine to their brands,

opening multiple flagships in multiple locations. Not only that but they were willing to pay exorbitant sums of money to showcase their merchandise in luxury corridors. Rents have swelled so much, however, that many retailers can no longer justify the high price, especially as more shoppers shift their spending online and physical stores lose foot traffic. CoStar Group, a real estate research firm, examined retail leasing at luxury corridors in seven cities: Miami’s Lincoln Road, Beverly Hills’ Golden Triangle, Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, Washington D.C.’s Georgetown district, Boston’s Newbury Street, Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and San Francisco’s Union Square. It found the vacancy rate shot up to 7% last year from 3% in 2017 — greater than the 4% those areas saw in the Great Recession. Last year, the net number of retail square footage lost in these corridors topped 353,000, surpassing the 214,000 loss of square feet seen in 2009. The loss was exaggerated by Macy’s selling of its I. Magnin portion of its flagship store at Union Square in San Francisco. But CoStar found that excluding even that move, every high-end shopping corridor it tracked saw a weakening trend. As a result, rents on Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue have taken a hit as demand for these locations have fallen. Average annual asking rents for ground

floor locations for the Fifth Avenue strip between 49th and 60th Street was $2,779 per square feet in the first quarter of 2019, down 11% from its peak of the first quarter of 2017, says commercial real estate broker Cushman & Wakefield. But many analysts believe they haven’t fallen far enough. In fact, commercial rents in 45 out of the 60 cities including New York, Los Angeles and Miami, are higher than in 2009 when the economy was in a recession, according to data from CBRE, a commercial real estate service firm. In the case of Barneys New York’s Madison Avenue store, the landlord there reportedly raised its rent to $30 million from $16 million earlier this year. A Barneys spokeswoman declined to comment.

Still, flagship stores aren’t dead. Many retailers like Nike and Levi are embracing new versions that beckon shoppers with less merchandise and more high-tech experiences. “I don’t think you have a need for these massive stores,” Stacey Widlitz, president of SW Retail Advisors, said. “Shoppers are shopping completely differently. You don’t need a full assortment. They have to become an experience, letting customers get to know who you are versus selling stuff.” A growing number of retailers are also thinking smaller. Hollister, for instance, is embracing shrunken stores that offer online services and serve both local and tourist customers.

Out to get you: Don’t be duped by these phone, email scams By Liz Weston NerdWallet

Some of us in the personal finance realm have a weird little hobby: We try to scam the scam artists. We’re not out to steal their money — just their time. When fraudsters call to say we’re about to be arrested for tax debt, our Social Security number has been “suspended,” or a loved one is in trouble, we play along. This gives us valuable insight into how the scams operate while wasting the time these jerks could spend victimizing more vulnerable people. We have our work cut out for us. Government-imposter frauds have scammed people out of at least $450 million since 2014, according to the Federal Trade Commission. Interestingly, people ages 20 to 59 are more likely to report being defrauded this way than those 60 and over, but older people tend to lose more money. The median individual reported loss was $960, but it was $2,700 for

people 80 and older, the FTC said in a July report. You don’t have to engage with the bad guys to help thwart them. Answering the phone when scam artists call can put you on a “sucker list” that will prompt more calls. But you can sign up for free “watchdog alerts” from AARP’s Fraud Watch Network, report scam attempts to the FTC and warn loved ones about the latest schemes, such as these three.

Government imposters Fraudsters are nothing if not flexible. As media coverage of IRSimposter calls increased last year, scammers switched to impersonating Social Security investigators. The crooks often use software to spoof caller ID services into showing phone numbers for the Social Security Administration or its fraud hotline. Doug Shadel, AARP’s lead researcher on consumer fraud, recently pretended to take the bait. He returned a robocall from

a group of these impersonators and was told the FBI was about to arrest him for opening 25 fraudulent bank accounts. To help the “investigators,” Shadel was advised to move all the money in his legitimate bank accounts to prepaid cards issued by “government-certified” stores such as Apple, Target, CVS or Walgreens. Then, Shadel was supposed to give the caller the cards’ serial numbers so the information could be added to his “file” — allowing the bilkers to steal the money. Details of these scams may seem absurd, but con artists are exceptionally good at creating an atmosphere of fear and urgency so you’ll react emotionally, Shadel says. “Once you’re in that state of fear, it swamps all reason,” he says. Variations on this scheme include warnings that your Social Security number has been suspended because of suspicious activity or that your help is needed to investigate a crime, such as immigration fraud. Know this: Social Security numbers can’t be

suspended, investigators typically don’t enlist civilians, and government agencies don’t call out of the blue, says Kathy Stokes, director of AARP’s fraud prevention programs. “Anyone calling from the government saying there’s a problem and you owe money is a scam,” she says.

Password-enabled blackmail “Sextortion” blackmail tries to convince you that your computer has been hacked and that the blackmailer is about to expose an extramarital affair, porn-watching habits or other embarrassing behavior. The email is really just a boilerplate form, but the subject line may include your actual password (which was probably exposed in some previous, unrelated database breach). The blackmailer typically demands payment via bitcoin or other digital currency. The solution is not to pony up, but to hit delete — and change your passwords regularly.

Kidnapping scams This is a twist on family emergency scams, where someone pretends to be a loved one who urgently needs money — to get out of jail, leave a foreign country or pay a hospital bill, for example. With kidnapping scams, crooks pretend to hold your loved one hostage, often including the sounds of someone screaming or pleading. The call may appear to come from the supposed victim’s phone number. Resist the urge to panic, and instead verify your loved one’s whereabouts, Stokes says. That could mean hanging up without speaking — often the best approach — then calling or texting them. Alternatively, reach out to someone likely to know where they are, such as a spouse, friend or parent, Stokes says. If you stay on the line, expect that the swindlers will try to keep you from checking out the story by threatening dire consequences. “If they say, ‘Don’t tell anybody or drastic things will happen,’ just know that that’s part of their ruse,” Stokes says.


Home prices climbed just 2.4% from 2018 WASHINGTON — U.S home prices rose at a slower

pace in May, a sign that many would-be buyers are finding properties unaffordable. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city home price index increased 2.4% in May a year earlier, Serving thefrom Kenai Peninsula for 18 years according to a Tuesday

report. Price growth decelerated slightly from the 2.5% year-over-year gain in April. “Thwarted by climbing prices for years, buyers are no longer willing to pay any price,” said Matthew Speakman, an economist that real estate company Zillow. “There were too few homes on the buyers Mile 16.5market Kenaiand Spur Highway were unable to find houses that fit both their needs and their budgets, so they took a breather.”

The sluggish price growth stems largely from the most expensive markets, where years of price growth have undermined affordability. Home prices rose less than 2% in Los Angeles, New York, San Diego and San Francisco. Prices in the typically hot market of Seattle fell 1.2% from a year ago, a sharp reversal from an annualized gain of 13.6% in May 2018. The strongest price gains were in Las Vegas

at 6.4%, Phoenix at 5.7% and Tampa at 5.1%. There were signs in a National Association of Realtors report on existing homes that prices may get some support from lower mortgage rates.

More Americans signed contracts to buy homes in June WASHINGTON — More Americans signed contracts to purchase homes in June, marking the second straight month of growth. The National Association of Realtors said Tuesday that its pending home sales index

rose 2.8% to 108.3 in June, up from 105.4 in May. Pending home sales are up 1.6% from their pace a year ago, snapping a 17-month streak of annual declines. Sales have likely been helped by lower interest rates, which are on average under 4% on a 30-year mortgage. All four regions saw contracts up from May and last year, with the West seeing the biggest jump in June at 5.4%. The West is also up the most year-over-year with gains of 2.5%. Pending sales is a measure of home purchases that are usually completed a month or two later. — Associated Press

Thank you for the warm welcome


The Eastern Area Incident Management Team would like to thank the community for the warm welcome we received and the Alaskan hospitality we have experienced. During our time here on the Kenai Peninsula, we have been awed by its beauty. It has been a privilege to come to your community, to get to know you, and to earn your trust. I know I speak for many of us on the Eastern Area IMT who are eager to return as visitors and bring our families to see the Last Frontier.

Until our paths cross again, we remain yours sincerely, Brian Pisarek, Incident Commander, Eastern Area IMT. Brian Pisarek, Incident Commander

Soldotna Senior Center would like to publicly thank Wells Fargo bank for their support of our Transportation program. Wells Fargo recently granted $2,500 to Soldotna Area Senior Citizens, Inc. to assist in providing on demand, unassisted transportation to senior citizens residing in the Soldotna, Funny River, and Ridgeway communities. Without the support of local businesses like Wells Fargo, we could not accomplish our mission of supporting and helping each other in a way which enhances the quality of life, so that everyone is valued equally and has a feeling of self-worth. John Walker, executive director Soldotna Area Senior Citizens, Inc

Plant a tree, for tomorrow

Planting trees is one of the easiest and most sustainable ways to positively affect the environment. Trees are multitaskers. Trees clean the air we breathe, build soil, soak up storm water, and create habitat for thousands of species. Trees increase property value. Trees connect us to nature and reduce stress and anxiety, help control noise, and create a sense of place. Trees are beautiful. Information provided by ReGroup, a nonprofit organization of volunteers formed in 1989 to develop public awareness and participation in the benefits of waste reduction, reuse and recycling on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula.

August is the eight month with 31 days and has the meaning of great or magnificent. August is also the last of the summer months. Even though August has no holidays doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had. Astrological signs for August: Leo and Virgo; Birthstones: peridot and spinel; Colors: green and red; Flowers: gladiolus and poppy; Bird: kingfisher; Animal: cheetah; Trees: cypress, poplar, cedar and pine. Leo is the fifth sign in the zodiac; its symbol is the lion and the element is fire. The ruler of this sign is the sun. The fire sign is an indicator of creativity. These people are self-sufficient and possess a tremendous zest for life. The lion means strength, courage and leadership. Virgo is the sixth sign in the zodiac, its symbol is the maiden and element is Earth, the ruling is Mercury. Virgo people are hardworking, detail-oriented and critical. Yhey’re quick to notice flaws, but their “attention to detail” is for a reason: to help others. August has two birthstones the peridot which is believed to instill power and influence in the wearer. The second birthstone is the spinel, which is believed to protect the owner from harm and soothe away sadness. Sardonyx was the original, but the Birthstone Registry claimed the peridot as the primary, then the spinel. The colors are green, symbolizing renewal of life and nature, and red, which is passion and is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power and determination. Augusts’ flowers are the gladiolus, symbolizing strength and moral integrity, and the poppy, which is for remembrance. Gladiolus are also the 40th anniversary flower. The bird for August is the kingfisher also known as the Halycon and is a longtime symbol of peace and prosperity, the promise of abundance, of new warmth and love, that is about to unfold within your life. The animal for the month is the cheetah.

This cat is believed to stand for a rigid way of thinking and to act quickly when situations change suddenly. The tree for Aug. 1-4 is the cypress, meaning death and mourning. Aug. 5-13 is the poplar tree, which means grounding, security and resiliency. Aug. 14-23 is the cedar tree, symbolizing confidence. Aug. 24-3 is the pine tree, which is the symbol of particular. Pine people tend to love agreeable company, are robust and very active. Here’s whats happening on the Kenai Peninsula in August. Aug. 2-4 is the Funny River Festival. This year marks the 25th annual event. This is presented by Funny River Community Center and is 13 miles down Funny River Road.

My Fifteen Minutes… ubby and I were pleased to be asked to participate in the Fourth of July parade by riding in the Kenai Historical Society vehicle. We only had to ‘”be there” they said so I donned my big red straw hat and he his suspenders and black farmer’s hat and we went to find our ride, which proved to be a 1946 Chevrolet pickup painted a nice sunshine yellow with Kenai Historical Society banners on each side. It was attracting attention as we stood waiting, so I thought this is a shoo-in! Built in celebrity! A candy-apple red 1956 Studebaker pickup was immediately ahead of us in the parade. It was a beauty! I visited with the owner briefly and she was very proud of her vehicle. It had been her dream for awhile, partly because she had been born in 1956. The parade was its first public journey, and she was excited. Her passengers were the Miss U.S. Agriculture Royalty: three young ladies in long dresses and tiaras. They practiced their ‘royal wave’ while we waited to begin. Digression: When I was a teenager and the boys I knew were car crazy, candy-apple red was THE color to aim for. Vintage cars then were anything before 1940 and usually a coupe (Remember “Little Deuce Coupe?”). The guys would spend more hours primping their cars than they ever did driving. That special shine could only be attained by very vigorous buffing. They would whisper among themselves that the best and only way to achieve “the glow” was to raid mom’s closet and filch a sanitary napkin to use, glancing sideways at any female passengers, hoping we had overheard, but blushing if we did. And we would ooh and ahh at the beautiful shiny red and ask them how they did it, only to make them blush again. The parade began more or less on time with the police car ahead, lights twirling and a couple of siren bursts. We pulled out of Trading Bay, turned left on Main Street Loop to eventually make our way past the Post Office to Willow Street. It was on Bidarka Street between the old courthouse and the day care that things changed. The Studebaker broke! Everything stopped except the leaders. The men all jumped out of their rigs and ran to assess the problem that very soon was determined to be unfixable at the moment. They pushed the Studebaker to the side of the road so the parade could proceed. What to do with the Agriculture Royalty? Why, jump into the next ride, of course, which was us old Fogies representing the Historical Society. Long dresses hitched to their knees and tiaras bouncing they jumped over the red tailgate, ran across the pavement in their bare feet (they’d removed their shoes in deference to the shiny flooring in the bed of the Studebaker) and climbed over the tailgate in our ride and settled easily into the yellow pickup, adjusting their skirts and their hair as they settled. A-h-h-h youth! Turns out they really were Royalty! The young lady from Homer had just returned from representing Alaska at the National Miss U.S. Agriculture Pageant in Orlando, where she brought back the national Queen Miss award, a coup for our state. With her was Alaska’s Ms U.S. Agriculture from Soldotna and one of her princesses. They had also gone to Orlando. Alaska had been well-represented in Florida. The Miss U.S. Agriculture is less a beauty pageant, although these representatives were all that, and leans more toward educating the public about the necessity of agriculture to our society. Our parade was a fun thing in an upcoming year of seminars

as the hottest on record, I’m sure. We were very happy for our hats as the sun beat down like never before on a parade in Kenai. I’m not sure anyone noticed the old guys in the yellow Chevy. They probably wondered why the Agriculture Queens were in the Historical Society vehicle, as the banners on the side of the bed proclaimed. Our fifteen minutes of fame lasted about

that, although we were recognized by a few friends along the way, and family waved and cheered, and pointed questioningly at our passengers. That night when I brought up Facebook for a look at the parade, there was the yellow pickup, front and center with the caption “Agriculture Royalty Ride.” Fifteen minutes might be stretching it a little!

Along the way

Take the Long Way

If you’re on the trail for several months, where do you sleep? Hikers have three choices for sleeping: • Shelters — There are more than 250 shelters on the trail, about one every 10 miles. Most have three sides, with one side open to the outdoors. There are also cabins that can be rented. • Tents — Hikers can sleep in tents they carry with them. They can pitch a tent at a shelter or campground. • Hostels and inns — When hikers get tired of being outdoors, they can stay in a hostel, motel, inn or bed-and-breakfast in towns along the trail. (Hostels are like bunkhouses set up mostly for hikers.)

Mini Fact: Hikers should always carry food and water with them.

working closely with local clubs, the U.S. Forest Service and the National Park Service.

Up and down mountains from Georgia to Maine snakes a 2,190-mile-long path known as the Appalachian Trail. Winding through 14 states, it is the longest marked hiking-only footpath in the world. Each year, more than 3 million people hike part of the trail. Hiking the entire trail in one trip is called a “thru-hike.” As many as 3,000 people try to do this each year. Only about 700 make it. This hike can take from five to seven months!

Hiking the trail

Trail history

The idea to build a trail began with a man named Benton MacKaye. He was a forester and planner. In 1921, he dreamed of a trail stretching the entire length of the Appalachian Mountains. These mountains are one of the oldest chains in the United States. The trail took 15 years to build. A group called the Benton MacKaye Appalachian Trail Conference helped plan and build the trail. Today called the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, this group helps protect and take care of it,

Most hikers who try to walk the entire trail start at Springer Mountain in Georgia. Along part of the trail, hikers can have one foot in Tennessee and one in North Carolina. The trail reaches its highest point at Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. One-fourth of the entire trail, about 550 miles, lies in Virginia. Only about 3 miles of the trail lie entirely in West Virginia. Along some sections, hikers can find rocks with fossils, or skeletons of plants or animals that have been dead for more than 400 million years. The trail reaches its lowest point near Bear Mountain in New York. In Maine, Mount Katahdin marks the end of the trail.

Leave No Trace

1. Plan ahead. If you’re prepared, you’re less likely to need help. 2. Stay on the trail and camp in places set aside for that purpose. 3. Carry out all trash and food waste. 4. Leave what you find. 5. Make sure campfires are cold before leaving them. 6. Don’t feed or disturb wildlife. 7. Be considerate of others.

Along the trail, hikers might see deer, bears or moose.

When we think of ways to reuse our stuff or collect it for the recycling bin instead of throwing it in the garbage can, we help keep our air, water and soil healthy. In addition, when we reuse our old things instead of buying new products, like reusing an old jelly jar as a pencil holder, we help keep the air clean. In other words, because we’re reusing our old products, factories don’t have to make as many new products, which will save energy. adapted from

Jaqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 4, 2019 This year you find that you are questioning both what is going on and your role in creating these events. You look for more understanding. If single, you are often drawn to others, but your biggest problem might be pushing away your admirers. Your love life could easily become overwhelming. If you are attached, the two of you take off for a cup of coffee, just the two of you. You will plan several getaways for only the two of you. LIBRA enjoys being around you, and makes no bones about it! 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) HHHHH You finally get answers, but not because you pushed for them. Rather, you hang back and encourage a partner to chat away. Do not make a big deal out of what you hear. Just smile. Tonight: Go with a loved one’s suggestion.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You could question your plans. On one level, you might want to clear out a project or get a better sense of what you want to do. Make it OK to change your plans. You cannot avoid an important talk either way. Tonight: Get as much R and R as possible.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Your very nature encourages you to lighten up and make the most of a fun invitation or suggestion. In some way, you are unstoppable in your pursuit of enjoying others and the moment. Tonight: As you like.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You have a very caring attitude that comes through to others. You might not have the right words, but you communicate your feelings well. Touch base with a family member whom you do not see often. Tonight: Make a favorite meal.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Make calls in the a.m. and catch up on others’ news. You might adjust plans because of what you hear. Do not hesitate to share some very good news that might surround someone who is younger than you. Tonight: Catching up with friends’ news.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH You might be overly concerned

their sports, they should be allowed that pleasure. Your home might be the most logical place to host these gatherings simply because it is large enough to accommodate all of the boys. Because they come from a lower income level doesn’t mean they can’t forge meaningful -- and lasting -- friendships with your son. Many successful individuals weren’t born with the proverbial silver spoon in their mouths. And many successful individuals did not attend college. They went to trade and tech schools and provide themselves and their families with


about your finances and how to maintain your budget. You might be eyeing an investment or a purchase. Double-check your information and do the research. Tonight: Make a favorite dessert.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH You are personality-plus and cannot get enough of others. You have been somewhat reclusive of late. Suddenly, you want to go out and meet a friend or two for brunch or a movie. Keep it light. Tonight: Enjoy a lengthy dinner with friends.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Take your time making plans. Be honest with yourself. If you do not want to visit with others and would rather spend the day alone, do so. Remember, this is your Sunday too. Get into a favorite game. Tonight: Do not push under any circumstances.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH You might be touched by a friend and his or her choices. You have a way of letting others know how much you care about them or appreciate their efforts. A conversation over a meal could be more important than you think. Tonight: Accept an invitation out.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You might hear a lecture or have a discussion that forces you to rethink a decision. You might do best opening up this topic for conversation in your immediate circle. You will hear a variety of perspectives. Tonight: Out for dinner with family and friends.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You have the ability to look at the big picture. Refuse to get caught up in details someone might present. What you get is the implications and the possibilities. Touch base with someone who lives at a distance. Tonight: Get into the moment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

HHH Pace yourself and get as much of a project completed as you can. A partner, loved one or dear friend could pitch in — if asked to make this “chore” more interesting. You might surprise yourself by what a good time you have. Tonight: As you like it.

very comfortable lifestyles. DEAR ABBY: My daughter married a man last spring. One week after their honeymoon, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastasized colon cancer. After eight months of doctors, hospitals and chemo, he passed away. They never had an opportunity to write thank-you notes for their wedding gifts. My daughter feels it is not appropriate now. I feel she should do it, saying something like, “Before my husband passed away, we enjoyed this gift very much.” She said to ask you. What is your opinion? — WONDERING IN

CALIFORNIA DEAR WONDERING: It is always appropriate to thank people for their kindness. Since you asked my opinion, I agree that your daughter should write short notes to the people who gave her wedding gifts and tell them she would have written sooner, but she is still grieving the loss of her husband. Then she should thank them for their generosity. The rules of etiquette do not require her to say more than that. When you discuss with her what I have written — as I am sure you will — please convey to her my deepest sympathy.

DEAR ABBY: My 13-yearold son plays on a local travel sports team. Many of his teammates could be considered lower class or lower middle class. We live in a luxurious home. We don’t flaunt it, and we’re not snobbish. All of the kids and the parents get along, and socioeconomic status plays no role in our interactions. My son invited a few of his teammates over for a few hours, and from the expressions on their faces, it was clear they had never seen a home like ours. They behaved like perfect gentlemen and were a pleasure to have over.
