JUNEAU — The special Alaska legislative session that began cloaked in drama is ending quietly. Tuesday marks the 30-day session limit. No floor sessions were planned to mark the official end, which comes more than a week after lawmakers finished their work on issues Gov. Mike Dunleavy asked them to consider. The Legislature approved restoring much of the operating budget money Dunleavy vetoed. The level of support needed for that was far less than what was needed to override the vetoes, which lawmakers failed to do amid a dispute over the session’s meeting location. Dunleavy has the option to cut again. He also has a say on the dividend residents get from Alaska’s oil-wealth fund. He wanted lawmakers to approve a roughly $3,000 dividend but they approved one of about $1,600.

Recall campaign makes progress By Peter Segall Juneau Empire

Michael Penn | Juneau Empire

Monika Kunat (left) signs an application petition to recall Gov. Mike Dunleavy on Thursday with others at the Planet Alaska Gallery in Juneau.

The Recall Dunleavy campaign is planning to release the number of signatures gathered on Thursday but its promoters are enthusiastic about the results so far. “We’re making history at this point,” campaign spokeswoman Meda Dewitt said by phone Tuesday. She said that many of her campaign colleagues who had worked on political campaigns in the past have

said they’ve never seen a turnout like this. “None of them have seen this level of signature gathering,” she said. Dewitt said that the campaign had held over 40 events statewide with another 20 planned. That was not counting door-to-door canvassing or ad hoc events, but events scheduled to the campaign’s website. In the city of Cordova with a population of roughly 2,300, Dewitt said that the campaign there had already collected 560 signatures.

“Little communities are really coming out in force because rural Alaska is going to be hit hardest by Dunleavy’s cuts,” Dewitt said. Juneau, she said, collected over 2,000 signatures on the first day of signing. Both Anchorage and Fairbanks had each had collected over 3,000, Dewitt said. In Juneau, Vivian Mork, one of the owners of the Planet Alaska store on Ferry Way where Juneau’s initial See recall, Page A3

Final bill to go to governor; unclear if Dunleavy will sign By Peter Segall Juneau Empire

money for the state’s operating budget but also appropriates an Alaska Permanent Fund dividend of $1,600, will either be signed or vetoed by Dunleavy in the coming weeks. The state constitution gives the governor 20 days, not

including Sundays, to take action on the bill. Thursday, Aug. 29, marks the end of that period. Wednesday at midnight also marks the end of the special session. If Dunleavy lets the bill become law, the Legislature will not meet again

until January 2020. However, if the governor does veto the bill, that would leave holes in the budget and still no amount allocated for the PFD. The Legislature can be called into yet another special session either by the governor or by two-thirds vote of the

Legislature, or 40 votes. Once that happens, the five-day clock to override a veto begins. It is not yet clear what the governor will do once the bill reaches his desk, but the governor has made a $3,000 PFD a priority for his administration.

Students give back Three peninsula teenagers honored with Summer of Heroes scholarships By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

Three teenagers from the Kenai Peninsula received awards as part of this year’s Summer of Heroes scholarship program. Carlee Rizzo from Nikiski, Zachary Halsstead from Kenai and Anna DeVolld from Soldotna were honored at Monday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education meeting. Six youth from across Alaska were celebrated for their community service efforts. The honorees receive a $1,500 scholarship for their work in the community. Summer of Heroes is a partnership program between Alaska Communications the Boys & Girls Clubs of Alaska. At the age of 14, DeVolld created the Promote our Pollinators program, to help educate the public about the importance of pollinators, while providing information on how to support pollinators. She created a children’s activity book, flyers, and presentation material that have been shared with her community and school. She is also a mentor to elementary students. “Anna is showing others it’s cool to be smart, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) can be exciting for everyone and age doesn’t matter in order to make a positive impact in the community,” according to the Summer of Heroes website. DeVolld will be collaborating with the city of Soldotna and Parks and Recreation Department to create permanent signs and labels about

up meals, and write articles for his school newspaper to raise awareness about the program,” the program’s website said. “He can be found helping families in need at the food bank or through his local church.” Every Tuesday, Halstead wakes

up early to make breakfast for students at Kenai Alternative High School, which he’s done since he was in first grade. Halstead also helps cares for cares for his See teens, Page A3

Hip-hop, classical infusion to headline concert By Joey Klecka Peninsula Clarion

Week 10 of the Levitt AMP Soldotna Music Series will showcase another spin on music culture for audiences on the peninsula. Philadelphia-based MC Kuf Knotz and New Jersey’s Christine Elise form a rare musical duo that puts a twist on hip-hop and classical melodies. Knotz combines his lyrical penchant for poetry and songwriting

to produce words for the classically trained Elise to pluck the harp to. Tonight’s show will be the central peninsula debut for Knotz and Elise, who are making their second trip to Alaska. “We’re excited. We’ve heard a lot of good stuff about this event,” Knotz said. The duo previously performed in Alaska on a winter solstice tour last December, where they made appearances in Anchorage, Palmer,

Talkeetna, Fairbanks and Homer. “When I’m not rapping, she’s singing,” he said. “It’s cool. It’s not a common collaboration, but it works decently.” This time, the two are joined by Trap Rabbit, a Philadelphia-based jazz duo comprised of Arjun Dube and Logan Roth. The two frequently partner with Knotz and Elise to form a full band that they hope will thrill audiences with an upbeat, spunky setlist.

Born in Philadelphia, Knotz was heavily influenced in his songwriting career living in Brooklyn, but has since returned to his Philly roots. Elise is classically trained on the harp, guitar and piano, and has spent much of her career working as a music therapist. Elise said joining Knotz in a musical partnership has given audiences a thrill. See concert, Page A3

Court reinstates Sarah Palin lawsuit against New York Times By Larry Neumeister Associated Press

NEW YORK — A defamation lawsuit Sarah Palin brought against The New York Times was restored by a federal appeals court Tuesday, giving the onetime Republican vice presidential nominee an opportunity to prove her claims that the newspaper falsely accused her of inciting a mass shooting that severely wounded a congresswoman. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said a lower-court judge tossed out the lawsuit too quickly without giving her a chance to obtain email records and other evidence that might aid her lawyers. Still, the decision by a three-judge panel said Palin’s burden of proof was high to prove that the newspaper acted with actual malice when it published an editorial in 2017 titled “America’s Lethal Politics.” The Manhattan judges, in an opinion

University of Alaska Fairbanks 26 years ago. Steven Downs made his first Alaska court appearance Tuesday. He was arrested in February in Maine but had contested extradition. Maine-based defense lawyer James Howaniec appeared telephonically and entered the not guilty pleas on Downs’ behalf. Downs, wearing yellow prison garb, appeared in the courtroom for the arraignment. Judge Andrew Peterson set bail at $1 million. The next hearing will be Aug. 14 in Fairbanks. Downs is charged in the 1993 sexual assault and killing of 20-year-old Sophie Sergie on the Fairbanks campus, where he was then a student. Alaska authorities say DNA linked him to the crime.

Man shot, wounded by officers ID’d ANCHORAGE — Anchorage police have released the name of the man shot and wounded by officers at an east-side

written by Circuit Judge John M. Walker Jr., said they took no position on the merits of Palin’s claim, but were concerned with the process lower-court judges follow in evaluating lawsuits. “Nothing in this opinion should therefore be construed to cast doubt on the First Amendment’s crucial constitutional protections,” the 2nd Circuit said. It said it recognized that “First Amendment protections are essential to provide ‘breathing space’ for freedom of expression.” Palin sued the Times for unspecified damages after the editorial about gun control was published following the June 2017 shooting of Louisiana U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, also a Republican, on a baseball diamond in Washington. In the editorial, the Times wrote that before the 2011 shooting of thenArizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized crosshairs.

The editorial was criticized by some readers who challenged the notion that the map constituted “political incitement” or that there was any “link” between it and the Arizona shooting, the Times lawyers have said. The Times lawyers have said the newspaper revised the online version of the editorial the following morning to remove those references and to make clear that the crosshairs on the map appeared over Giffords’ district rather than over her name or image. After Tuesday’s ruling, Times spokesperson Danielle Rhoades Ha said in an emailed statement: “We are disappointed in the decision and intend to continue to defend the action vigorously.” In a joint statement, Palin attorneys Kenneth G. Turkel and Libby Locke said: This is — and has always been — a case about media accountability. We are pleased with the Court’s decision, and we look forward to starting discovery and ultimately proceeding to trial.”

park. Police say three officers fired at 32-year-old Shakti Lewis on Monday at Dave Rose Park after Lewis pointed a BB gun at them. The BB gun resembled a handgun. Lewis remains in a hospital and will be transported to jail when he’s released. Police say he will be held on suspicion of three counts of assault until formally charged. Police descended on the park after witnesses said a man was pointing a handgun at homes and people. Police say Lewis ignored the multiple commands to put the weapon down, manipulated it and pointed it at three officers, who fired. No officers were injured. Police recovered a Crosman replica 1911 BB gun.

Sullivan’s says he’s sickened by shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that killed 31 people.

Some want wolf hunting ban near national park FAIRBANKS — A group of Alaska advocates is petitioning for an end to wolf hunting near Denali National Park, a report said. The group of more than 60 concerned residents and advocates is concerned about a decrease in the number of wolf sightings by bus drivers taking tourists on the only road inside the park, The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Monday. The group sent petitions to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game commissioner and the state Board of Game urging the closure of wolf hunting along the Stampede Corridor, just outside the national park’s eastern boundary. — Associated Press

Pat Race, owner of Alaska Robotics Gallery said that he will be hosting signing events on Wednesday, Aug. 7, from 3-6 p.m. and Friday, Aug. 9 from 3-8 p.m. Race also suggested that if people were unable to travel and wanted to sign from home, they could have a signature collector volunteer packet sent to their home. They could sign and send the paperwork back. Signing others up was not a requirement. Dewitt said that in some communities, volunteers have been organizing efforts to travel to rural areas and to people who have requested help, but that those efforts were different for each community. The Recall Dunleavy campaign has posted all of its events on its website, as well as information for volunteers. The campaign has enumerated a number of legal reasons for recalling the governor, which can be found online. The Empire reached out to the governor’s office Tuesday, but at the end of the business day, had not received a comment. Dewitt said that the number of total signatures should be released by the end of the day Thursday. “Everybody’s very excited about it,” she said. On Tuesday, the campaign’s website claimed that over 10,000 signatures had been collected — 35% of the 28,501 needed to submit an application.

Changing the channel on the bad rerun of shooting coverage Associated Press

What others say

Call the El Paso attack what it is — terrorism

A

fter yet another mass shooting, the predictable proposals begin, ideas that either wouldn’t have prevented the attack (universal background checks for gun purchases) or that address one small thing that might not even be a factor (violent video games). Instead, we must call the attack in El Paso what it is — white nationalist terrorism — and react with alarm and speed. That way, we can apply a framework that will actually address the problem. We’ve done it before, when we were brutally attacked by Islamic extremists in 2001. And though there were missteps along the way, the U.S. has largely been kept safe from repeated spectacular attacks by such terrorists. There are no quick solutions. The mass shooting problem, and the racism that fuels so much hate, aren’t going away soon. And tackling white supremacist violence won’t cover every shooter. But by naming the biggest threat, marshaling resources and building national unity around tackling it, we can make real progress and ultimately save lives. Here’s what a serious, sustained effort to defeat the anti-Hispanic, conspiracydriven hate that allegedly drove a young North Texas man to slaughter 22 innocent people in West Texas might look like:

More law enforcement attention After the Sept. 11 attacks, FBI leaders re-oriented the agency around preventing future attacks. Now, law enforcement at all levels need to make the white supremacist terrorist threat a priority. It’s a challenge — there isn’t a central organization to pursue, as there was with al-Qaeda. Tracking and stopping individual haters is a tall order. But almost without exception, there are signs that shooters could become violent. The Dayton, Ohio, killer apparently had a high school hit list that many of his fellow students knew about. Police need to take these threats seriously and follow up. It’s not just a federal job. Gov. Greg Abbott and other state leaders have pushed state law enforcement agencies to supplement federal border security efforts. They need to make white supremacy a priority, too.

NEW YORK — Revulsion over the weekend’s twin mass shootings and the nagging sense that it’s all an inconclusive rerun has frustrated the news media and those who rely upon it — and triggered the stirrings of a new debate over how such tragedies should be covered. “It’s time for journalists to take sides,” tweeted prominent Columbia University professor Bill Grueskin, and he’s not just a voice in the wilderness. News outlets haven been dominated by coverage of the shootings that killed 31 people in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Editors at The New York Times discovered the extent to which nerves are frayed when they put together the newspaper’s Tuesday edition. The first edition’s lead headline, “TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM,” provoked a social media backlash. Some tweeters said they canceled subscriptions in disgust. “Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by — and often relies upon — the cowardice of mainstream institutions,” New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet. The newspaper called the headline flawed and changed it to, “ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT GUNS” in later editions and online. Similarly, The Associated Press got online criticism for using the phrase “mass shootings” to refer to the carnage, with some readers suggesting “murder” was more appropriate. The news service’s rules forbid using the word murder unless an assailant was convicted of a crime. Fox News’ Shepard Smith wearily captured the impotence of the by-now-rote response to each mass shooting. “We hear you,” he told viewers in an essay that opened his show Monday. “We heard you the last time. And the time before that and we will likely do it all soon, yet again in America.” The ritual makes journalism seem futile, said John Temple, a professor at the University of California at Berkeley who was a newspaper editor in

“We heard you the last time. And the time before that and we will likely do it all soon, yet again in America.”

Colorado at the time of the Columbine shootings. Journalists feel the need to bear witness, Temple wrote in Atlantic magazine, but to the same horror, again and again? “I can’t say any more that I believe we learn from terrible things,” Temple said. “I can say that I’ve seen the limits of journalism — and of hope. And I’m struggling with what to do about it.” The futility led Columbia’s Grueskin, a veteran of the Miami Herald and Wall Street Journal, to suggest taking sides. He said the issue reminds him of the civil rights movement, where the moral importance led many reporters to cast aside doubt as to who was right and wrong. Gun violence and climate change are issues that deserve the same treatment today, he said. “Politicians who are too craven or mealy-mouthed to acknowledge the depth and breadth of these problems, and the need to enact serious reforms, will someday be looked upon the way we now think of Strom Thurmond or James Eastland,” Grueskin said, referring to the segregationist senators from South Carolina and Mississippi. “Journalists have every right, and every obligation, to point that out.” How to put this idea into practice is the hard part. Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather suggests journalists refrain from quoting President Donald Trump’s speeches and tweets without better context. The Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin said every story on the issue should mention that Trump never condemned white

nationalism until Monday’s speech, and consistently abetted it. Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke went even further, urging reporters to “connect the dots” and say Trump is inciting racism and violence. “O’Rourke’s words were a moment of moral clarity that America so desperately needs,” wrote Will Bunch, a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer. “We just need a lot more. This cannot be business as usual.” Not everyone agrees, as O’Rourke’s primary opponent, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, found out when he pointed to Trump’s words in an appearance on Fox News Channel. Host Neal Cavuto argued that his guest was taking things too far to suggest Trump inspired the El Paso shooter. They went back and forth, before Cavuto cut off the interview with Ryan in mid-sentence. Cable news advocacy has damaged the reputation of journalism in general, said Will Norton, dean of the School of Journalism and New Media at the University of Mississippi. Many people already expect news served up with a point of view. So if journalists more actively take sides, Norton said it will make things even worse with people who already believe the media is biased. “You just wonder why an incident like this happens and the media covers it like crazy and then it doesn’t come up again until the next killing,” Norton said. “The way that you cover these things is you keep it before the public and let them know how important it is.” For Lucy Dalglish, dean of the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism, it was working with surviving journalists from the Capital Gazette after the 2018 attack that killed five staff members at the Annapolis, Virginia, newspaper that led her to question her old assumptions. For generations, journalism students have been told to check their feelings at the door when it’s time to work, she said. “It’s becoming tougher and tougher to do that,” Dalglish said, “because the way we’re covering this doesn’t seem to matter anymore.”

administrations have neglected the welfare and safety of Alaskan citizens and violated their oaths of office to uphold the state constitution, specifically, Article 8 to get more land into private hands so that we can be a self-supporting. Instead, they were so intent in ripping off billions of dollars of public-owned resources and selling them to big corporations that they totally neglected the food and security of Alaska’s citizens. If the U.S. Forest Service and State Parks and Division of Lands would allow the construction of roads and put in fire breaks, we wouldn’t be burning up a thousand square miles of forest in Alaska every year and spending millions of dollars putting out the fires. I bet the cost of putting out the fires far exceeds the cost of putting in a few fire breaks. Once a fire gets started, the dry smoke causes more lightning — thus

starting more fires. So it a self-perpetuating situation! The Swanson River Fire burned up over 150 square miles of forest. That’s 150 sections of land — over 140,000 acres and counting! Government bureaucrats won’t allow the citizens who are the real owners of forest resources to harvest some of the trees for lumber, house logs and firewood because they are so afraid someone might profit by it and have independent lifestyles — not dependent of government handouts. I suggest you do something about this dangerous situation like getting more land into private hands so Alaskans can produce their own food and be less dependent on other states for everything. China is doing it at the same geographic latitude with an insulated blanket that covers the greenhouses at night. — Henry Kroll Soldotna

Shepard Smith, Fox News

President Donald Trump said all the right things Monday about America being no place for hate. The problem is everything he said before that. For four years, as an attention-grabbing candidate and as president, he’s framed immigrants in ugly terms, portraying a false picture of an invasion force at the border. Trump did not directly cause the shooting. But his words and ideas offer refuge for the worst kind of conspiracy theorist and those who would turn to violence in response to the idea that white Americans are losing their edge in life or even being “replaced.” It’s not that hard to be tough on illegal immigration without turning to race-baiting. The president has a lot to do to build any credibility on this issue. And if he can’t or won’t, the voters must hold him accountable next year.

Yes, this new gun law would help Expanding background checks is the preferred immediate policy of most gun control advocates. But many mass shooters have passed such checks to buy their guns. That appears to be the case in the El Paso and Dayton shootings. A better first step would be the creation of gun violence restraining orders, also known as “red-flag” laws. This popular idea would allow police, with a judge’s supervision and approval, to remove weapons from someone found to be an imminent threat. We trust judges to allow law-enforcement incursions upon other liberties, such as the right against search and seizure, every day. Good judges balance public safety and individual rights, and they can do so here. Abbott, a former judge and state attorney general, has hinted as supporting this, and he should demand that the Legislature to enact it. Law enforcement at all levels must ensure that information about potentially dangerous people is input into the right databases. This sounds stunningly obvious, but we learned after the Parkland and Sutherland Springs shootings that it doesn’t always happen. And we should consider whether in many cases, law enforcement needs more time to conduct a deeper background search. Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn led an effort last year to improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, a good start. This is the nitty-gritty work of making bureaucracy function better and fill gaps that allow violent racists to slip through. It’s not dramatic, but it must continue.

Help young men with anger and fear Trump talked at length Monday about the impact of the internet. But there’s a bigger issue — young men who don’t know how to deal with anger, rejection or fear. Boys are falling behind in education. The culture doesn’t often provide the best male role models. And yes, finding fellows online with tidy theories about who’s to blame can lead a vulnerable mind down a dark road. Preventing radicalization is one of the biggest challenges of dealing with any terrorist movement. It’s a matter of education, opportunity and persuasion. — Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Aug. 6

letter to the editor

Alaska must prioritize food security An open letter to Sen. Lisa Murkowski: Given the fact that one of government’s primary functions is the safety and security of its people; I must point out that only 2% of the food we eat in Alaska is grown in Alaska. If two or three shipments of food to Alaska are delayed from the Lower 48 states for some reason, like a crop failure sue to drought, EMP, Yellowstone volcanic eruption, war, etc., we are in big trouble. We are almost 100% dependent on other states for practically everything, including lumber and other building materials. It is obvious that past

WASHINGTON — Despite frequent mass shootings, Congress has proven unable to pass substantial gun violence legislation, in large part because of resistance from Republicans. But a bipartisan proposal by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., is gaining momentum following weekend mass shootings in Texas and Ohio. The stillemerging plan would create a federal grant program to encourage states to adopt “red flag” laws to take guns away from people believed to be a danger to themselves or others. A similar bill never came up for a vote in the GOP-controlled Senate last year, but both parties express hope that this year will be different. President Donald Trump has signaled support for the plan. “We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do those firearms can be taken through rapid due process,” Trump said in a White House speech Monday. Many mass shootings “involved individuals who showed signs of violent behavior that are either ignored or not followed up on,” said Graham, chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee. “State red flag laws will provide the tools for law enforcement to do something about many of these situations before it’s too late.” In an interview Tuesday, Blumenthal said there’s “a growing wave of support on both sides of the aisle” for the redflag plan — more momentum in fact “than any other gun violence plan” being debated in Congress, including a proposal Blumenthal supports to require universal background checks for gun purchases. A closer look at red flag laws, which have been adopted by at least 15 states and the District of Columbia.

How does a red flag law work? In general, red flag or “extreme risk protection order” laws allow courts to issue temporary orders barring someone from possessing guns based on some showing of imminent danger or a

risk of misuse. State laws vary, but most stipulate that only specific people — usually family or household members — may petition a court for an extreme risk protection order. In some cases, a preliminary order may be granted without prior notice to the person who is the subject of the order. Such an order typically is brief, ranging from a few days to about three weeks. Once the person who is alleged to pose a risk of gun violence has been given an opportunity to respond, a more permanent order may be granted, typically for up to a year. Importantly to Graham and other supporters, before an order can be entered, some factual showing must be made that the subject of the order poses a risk of using a firearm to harm themselves or others.

Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey, Indiana’s Mike Braun and Iowa’s Chuck Grassley, a former Judiciary chairman. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, told reporters Tuesday he is open to the proposal, noting that the alleged shooter in Dayton, Ohio, had so-called kill lists of intended targets. “Clearly people knew something was wrong with this guy, and yet nobody went to the proper authorities or the proper authorities didn’t respond,” Portman said. A red flag law may “bridge this issue of the guns and the mental health issue, where you identify somebody who has a mental health history that might not be formally diagnosed, but that people know about,” he said.

What is the federal proposal?

The Kentucky Republican, who has adopted the nickname the “Grim Reaper” to celebrate his success at blocking Democratic bills, is widely considered the single biggest roadblock to changes in gun laws or any significant legislation in Congress. McConnell has not publicly indicated a position on red flag laws but said in a statement Monday that “Senate Republicans are prepared to do our part” to address gun violence. He said he has spoken with Graham and other committee chairs and asked them to consider “potential solutions to help protect our communities without infringing on Americans’ constitutional rights.” Congress passed a modest measure last year to shore up the federal background checks system and approved a grant program to prevent school violence — signs that action on gun violence is possible, McConnell said.

Graham and Blumenthal are still developing the plan, but a similar bill proposed last year by Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson essentially would pay states to implement red flag law programs. A bid last year by Graham and Blumenthal to let federal courts keep guns away from people who show warning signs of violence failed to generate political support. Blumenthal called the failed effort to create a federal program a learning experience and said the new proposal would set a national standard that states must meet in order to be eligible for federal grants. He compared it to federal highway laws where grants are dependent on states setting speed limits or drunkdriving standards. “If you have speed limits, you get the money,” he said, adding that the red flag law would operate on the same principle.

How much would it cost? Costs are still being worked out, but whatever the amount, “it’s a small fraction of the losses — both monetary and in the loss of life — as a result of gun violence,” Blumenthal said.

Who supports the plan? Nearly all Senate Democrats support red flag laws, along with a growing number of Republicans, including

Where is Senate Majority League Mitch McConnell?

What about the NRA? A National Rifle Association spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In a statement, the group said it welcomes Trump’s call “to address the root causes of the horrific acts of violence that have occurred in our country. It has been the NRA’s longstanding position that those who have been adjudicated as a danger to themselves or others should not have access to firearms and should be admitted for treatment.”

‘Target list’ prompts domestic terrorism case in festival shooting By Stefanie Dazio Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — The discovery of a “target list” containing religious institutions, courthouses and other sites compiled by the gunman in a mass shooting at a California food festival has prompted the FBI to open a domestic terrorism case. Shooter Santino William Legan, 19, appeared to be interested in conflicting violent ideologies, but authorities still have not determined a motive for the July 28 attack that killed three people, including two children, said John Bennett, the FBI’s agent in charge in San Francisco. Authorities have not found a written explanation from Legan, but Bennett said they cannot rule out white nationalism as a factor. On the day of the attack, Legan urged his Instagram followers to read a 19th

century book popular with white supremacists who follow extremist websites. He also complained about overcrowding towns and paving open space to make room for “hordes” of Latinos and Silicon Valley whites. Family members of Legan released a statement saying they were “deeply shocked and horrified” by his actions. They also apologized to the victims and their families. “We have never and would never condone the hateful thoughts and ideologies that led to this event, and it is impossible to reconcile this with the son we thought we knew,” the statement said. Legan grew up less than a mile from Christmas Hill Park, where the festival was held. His father was a competitive runner and coach; his brother was an accomplished young boxer; and his grandfather had been a Santa Clara County supervisor.

The statement, distributed by attorney Chuck Smith, said the family has cooperated with the investigation. “We are heartbroken that he committed this violence in his hometown, at a family event meant to celebrate the tight-knit community we have been a part of for 20 years,” the statement said. “To the city of Gilroy and to everyone affected, we are tremendously sorry. No words can begin to express this.” Inv e s t i g a t o r s w e re

examining Legan’s digital media to determine his possible ideology, who he may have been in contact with regarding the ideologies, who if anyone helped him, and why he committed the violence, Bennett said. The target list, which also included federal buildings and both major U.S. political parties, was found during the examination of the digital evidence. Bennett said the groups included were being notified but the FBI would not release their names.

Peter Strzok sues FBI for firing him over anti-Trump texts WASHINGTON — A veteran FBI agent who wrote derogatory text messages about Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Tuesday charging that the bureau caved to “unrelenting pressure” from the president when it fired him. The suit from Peter Strzok also alleges he was unfairly punished for expressing his political opinions, and that the Justice Department violated his privacy when it shared hundreds of his text messages with reporters. “This campaign to publicly vilify Special Agent Strzok contributed to the FBI’s ultimate decision to unlawfully terminate him,” the lawsuit says, “as well as to frequent incidents of public and online harassment and threats of violence to Strzok and his family that began when the texts were first disclosed to the media and continue to this day.” The complaint, which names as defendants Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Chris Wray, revisits a political drama that was seized on by conservative critics of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation as proof that the bureau was biased against Trump. It provides new details about the circumstances of Strzok’s firing and amounts to the latest defense of his reputation, coming months after a fiery congressional hearing in which he insisted that his personal views never influenced his work.

Parents weren’t told of Catholic school student’s racist video, threats COLUMBIA, S.C. — A Catholic school in South Carolina waited more than two weeks to tell parents a student was expelled and arrested after making racist videos and threatening to shoot black people. The videos of the white, 16-year-old male casually firing a gun and making racist comments revived painful memories of the fatal shooting of nine black worshippers in a Charleston church in 2015. Two of the videos made by the Cardinal Newman School student show him using at least two different guns to fire more than two dozen shots into a box that he says represents all black men, according to a Richland County Sheriff’s Department report. He uses a racial slur several times in the videos and says black people “are stinky and they just suck.”

Union: Mulvaney comments confirm agency moves meant to cut TOPEKA, Kan. — A federal employees union charged Tuesday that recent comments by acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney confirm the Trump administration’s “grand strategy” to cut the federal workforce by relocating agency offices out of Washington. Mulvaney said last week that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s plan to relocate several hundred of jobs from Washington to the Kansas City area is “a wonderful way to streamline government.” Speaking to a group of fellow Republicans in his home state of South Carolina, he said it’s “nearly impossible” to fire federal workers but added that many will not move to “the real part of the country.” Within days of taking office, President Donald Trump declared a hiring freeze, and within months, Mulvaney, as director of the Office of Management and Budget, outlined a plan for reducing the civilian workforce. But he said in his South Carolina remarks that he’s tried to fire workers and “you can’t do it.” The USDA said in June it would move most of the employees of the Economic Research Service and National Institute of Food and Agriculture partly to bring the two agencies closer to farmers and agribusinesses. The Interior Department has offered a similar rationale for breaking up the Bureau of Land Management’s headquarters and putting employees in 11 western states. — Associated Press

China to Hong Kong protesters: Punishment is coming By Yanan Want and Christopher Bodeen Associated Press

HONG KONG — China warned Tuesday that it will be “only a matter of time” before it punishes those behind two months of prodemocracy protests in Hong Kong that have increasingly devolved into violent clashes with law enforcement. The comments by Yang Guang, spokesman for the Chinese Cabinet’s Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office, are a further indication that Beijing will take a hard line against the demonstrators and has no plans to negotiate over their demands for political reforms. “We would like to make it clear to the very small group of unscrupulous and violent criminals and the dirty forces behind them: Those who play with fire will perish by it,” Yang said. “Don’t ever misjudge the situation and mistake our restraint for weakness.” Singling out “brazen, violent and criminal actors” and the “meddling hands behind the scenes” as the focus law enforcement efforts, Yang said, “As for

their punishment, it’s only a matter of time.” China so far has not visibly intervened in the situation, though it has published a series of strongly worded editorials in state media condemning “violent radicals” and “foreign forces” allegedly inflaming them. Speculation has grown that the Communist Party-led central government will deploy the military to quell demonstrators after Chinese officials pointed to an article in Hong Kong law that allows troops already stationed in the city to help with “public order maintenance” at the Hong Kong government’s request. While Hong Kong authorities have said they don’t anticipate any need to bring in troops or police from China to help impose order, the Hong Kong army garrison and police in the city of Shenzhen across the border have both released videos recently of their officers training to disperse groups of people dressed in black and wearing masks and construction helmets like many of the Hong Kong protesters. A former British colony, Hong Kong was returned

to China in 1997 under the framework of “one country, two systems,” which promised the city certain democratic freedoms not afforded to the mainland. But some Hong Kong residents feel that Beijing has been increasingly encroaching on their freedoms. A string of demonstrations began in June against proposed extradition legislation that would have allowed some suspects to be sent to mainland China for trial. While the government has since suspended the bill, protesters have pressed on with broader calls for democratic reforms, an investigation into allegations of police brutality and for the city’s leader to step down. Protesters late Tuesday and early Wednesday surrounded a police station to demand the release of a university student arrested for apparently buying laser pointers in the latest confrontation for the Chinese city. Police used tear gas at one point to try to clear the demonstrators from the blue-collar Sham Shui Po neighborhood. The Hong Kong Baptist University Students’ Union

demanded the release of its president, Keith Fong, in a Facebook post that accused the police of fabricating the weapons charge. Pro-democracy legislator Fernando Cheung Chiuhung told reporters earlier Tuesday that Beijing should not make the demonstrations a national security issue because the movement is not targeting the central government, but rather the administration of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam. During a “People’s Press Conference,” a protester using the pseudonym Jerry Chan indicated that demonstrators would not attempt to confront the military if it made an appearance. “I believe the protesters and Hong Kong citizens will ‘be water’ and know what to do,” Chan said, referring to the protesters’ philosophy of taking a fluid approach to their demonstrations. “We will go home and sleep.” The three protesters who spoke to reporters said the briefing was intended to counter regular government and police news conferences in which authorities have repeatedly decried violent acts by some pro-democracy

Trade war tensions ease a bit BEIJING — Tensions between the U.S. and China over trade subsided a bit, giving U.S. investors a reason to wade back into stocks after a big sell-off a day earlier. Still, experts worried that recent actions taken by the two sides presage a prolonged battle over trade that could slow global economic growth. China stabilized its currency Tuesday, suggesting it might hold off from aggressively letting the yuan weaken as a way to respond to U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods. That came a day after Beijing sent financial markets tumbling by allowing the currency to fall to an 11-year low against the dollar. A weaker yuan can help neutralize U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods by making them more price-competitive on international markets. The Chinese currency declined to 7.0562 to the dollar before strengthening back to 7.0264. — Associated Press

demonstrators. They also apologized for inconveniences caused by a general strike Monday that paralyzed regular workday operations in the city. Major roads and public transit lines were blocked, and at least 77 flights at the airport were canceled. Protesters challenged law enforcement in at least eight districts on Monday, responding to continuous rounds of tear gas with practiced swiftness. Some started fires outside police stations and hurled bricks and eggs at officers. Hong Kong security secretary John Lee said

the damage and violence was “unprecedented” since 1997, with more than 15 police stations or facilities attacked and surrounded. Echoing language used by officials to criticize their actions, protesters said they “strongly condemn the lawlessness and the inhuman actions done by police.” Some police officers have shown “total lack of self-discipline,” Chan said, adding that some tear gas was fired on residential buildings during clashes across several districts Monday.

North Korea’s Kim deems missile test ‘adequate warning’ By Kim Tong’Hyung Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea said Wednesday leader Kim Jong Un supervised a live-fire demonstration of newly developed short-range ballistic missiles he said were intended to send an “adequate warning” to the United States and South Korea over their joint military exercises. The announcement by Pyongyang’s official Korean

Central News Agency on Wednesday came a day after South Korea’s military said it detected the North firing two projectiles that were likely ballistic missiles into the sea. Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff alerted reporters to the launches minutes before the North’s Foreign Ministry denounced Washington and Seoul over the start of their joint exercises on Monday. The ministry’s statement said the drills, which North Korea sees as an invasion

Today is Wednesday, Aug. 7, the 219th day of 2019. There are 146 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 7, 1998, terrorist bombs at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed 224 people, including 12 Americans. On this date: In 1782, Gen. George Washington created the Order of the Purple Heart, a decoration to recognize merit in enlisted men and noncommissioned officers. In 1789, the U.S. Department of War was established by Congress. In 1942, U.S. and other allied forces landed at Guadalcanal, marking the start of the first major allied offensive in the Pacific during World War II. (Japanese forces abandoned the island the following February.) In 1959, the United States launched the Explorer 6 satellite, which sent back images of Earth. In 1961, Yale psychology professor Stanley Milgram began conducting his controversial human behavior experiments concerning obedience toward authority figures. In 1964, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, giving President Lyndon B. Johnson broad powers in dealing with reported North Vietnamese attacks on U.S. forces. In 1971, the Apollo 15 moon mission ended successfully as its command module splashed down in the Pacific Ocean. In 1989, a plane carrying U.S. Rep. Mickey Leland, D-Texas, and 14 others disappeared over Ethiopia. (The wreckage of the plane was found six days later; there were no survivors.) In 2000, Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore selected Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman as his running mate; Lieberman became the first Jew on a major party’s presidential ticket. In 2005, ABC News anchorman Peter Jennings died in New York at age 67. In 2010, Elena Kagan was sworn in as the 112th justice and fourth woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. In 2017, medical examiners said the remains of a man who’d been killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11 had been identified, nearly 16 years after the attacks. Ten years ago: Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, on a tour of Africa, urged South Africans to press for political and economic reforms in neighboring Zimbabwe. Five years ago: President Barack Obama authorized U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq, warning they would be launched if needed to defend Americans from advancing Islamic militants and protect civilians under siege. President Obama signed a $16.3 billion measure aimed at helping veterans avoid long waits for health care. A jury convicted a suburban Detroit homeowner of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the killing of an unarmed woman on his porch, rejecting Theodore Wafer’s claim that he was afraid for his life when he heard Renisha McBride pounding on his door in the middle of the night and had acted in selfdefense. (Wafer was sentenced to at least 17 years in prison.) One year ago: Sharice Davids won a Democratic congressional primary in Kansas, becoming the state’s first Native American and gay nominee for Congress. (Davids went on to become one of the first two Native American women elected to the House.) The fourth suspect in the shooting death of emerging South Florida rap star XXXTentacion turned himself in to authorities. Chicago police said they would deploy hundreds of additional officers to neighborhoods where a burst of gun violence over the weekend left at least 11 people dead and 70 wounded. Hall of Fame hockey forward Stan Mikita, who helped the Chicago Black Hawks win the 1961 Stanley Cup, died at the age of 78. Today’s Birthdays: Magician, author and lecturer James Randi is 91.

Thought for Today: “There are a lot of people who think our job is to reassure the public every night that their home, their community and their nation is safe. I don’t subscribe to that at all. I subscribe to leaving people with essentially -- sorry it’s a cliche -- a rough draft of history. Some days it’s reassuring, some days it’s absolutely destructive.” -- Peter Jennings (1938-2005).

rehearsal, leave the country “compelled to develop, test and deploy the powerful physical means essential for national defense.” North Korea’s fourth round of weapons launches in less than two weeks came amid a standstill in nuclear negotiations and after President Donald Trump repeatedly dismissed the significance of the country’s recent tests despite the threat the weapons pose to allies South Korea and Japan and to U.S. bases there. Experts say Trump’s downplaying of the North’s weapons display has allowed

the country more room to advance its military capabilities as it attempts to build leverage ahead of negotiations, which could possibly resume sometime after the end of the allies’ drills later this month. KCNA said the launches on early Tuesday verified the reliability and combat ability of the newly-developed missiles. It said two missiles launched from a western airfield flew cross-country and over the area surrounding capital Pyongyang before accurately hitting an island target off its eastern coast. The agency reported Kim

expressed satisfaction and said the launches would “send an adequate warning to the joint military drill now underway by the U.S. and south Korean authorities.” Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the projectiles traveled about 279 miles on an apogee of 23 miles at a maximum speed of above Mach 6.9 before landing in waters off the country’s eastern coast. It said the projectiles showed similar flight characteristics to short-range missiles North Korea fired on July 25, which traveled about 373 miles during launches the North described a

“solemn warning” to South Korea over its plans to continue military drills with the United States. South Korea’s military had said the flight data of the July missiles showed similarities to the Russian-made Iskander, a solid-fuel, nuclear capable missile that is highly maneuverable and travels on lower trajectories compared with conventional ballistic weapons, improving its chances of evading missile defense systems. The North last week also conducted two test firings of what it described as a new rocket artillery system.

Simple for summer? Think gazpacho

Sharon Salyer / The Herald

Gazpacho, summer cooking without the stove, has many variations. This one is a combination of tomatoes and watermelon.

By Sharon Salyer Herald Writer

T

here are hundreds of recipes for gazpacho. An internet search finds well-known culinary names adding their twists to this popular summertime soup. They include Ina Garten, aka the Barefoot Contessa, and former New York Times food writer Mark Bittman, the Cliff Notes of cooking, who finds ways of making many recipes simple and quick. So when ripe, plump heirloom tomatoes turned up in the local farmers market stalls over the weekend, I knew it was time to give one of the recipes a try. Actually, it was a bit of two-weekend tryout. In 2014, Bittman published an even dozen gazpacho recipes, including ingredients as varied as kale, avocado, green grapes and tomatillos. Last week I tried his tomato and strawberry gazpacho, one of the recipes in that collection, and liked it a lot. Bittman suggests adding a slice or two

of bread to some of these recipes to give them a little more substance. With watermelons also coming into their prime, I decided to try a gazpacho with that red, ripe fruit in it, this one provided by Martha Rose Shulman of the New York Times. Actually, it was an adaptation of a recipe she saw in “The New Spanish Table” by cq SS Anya von Bremzen. Even Shulman admits she was a bit skeptical at first, but gave it a try. It is made without some of the typical gazpacho add-ins, such as garlic, onions, cucumber, basil, Italian parsley and balsamic or other types of vinegar. Its list of ingredients is short — just six items: tomatoes, watermelon, lemon juice, olive oil, celery and salt ‘n’ pepper. The key thing with any gazpacho is to give it time to chill — overnight if possible — and then adjust various flavorings as you see fit. Without the bread that Bittman recommends in his gazpacho, this is a very light soup, which I think makes it

perfect for those days when you come home to a hot house and you feel like a little something, but not a lotta something, to eat. I like the crisp, clean taste provided by the watermelon. The celery adds a pleasant bit of sodium to the recipe. Shulman says to be sure and experiment with added salt and lemon juice to bring out the soup’s true taste. She suggests either celery sticks or slim celery matchsticks as a side or garnish. It can always be paired with a nice slice of bread dipped in olive oil, and maybe even your favorite cheese. There are, of course, additional items you could add. One person posted that she had added red onion. I was very tempted to do so, but as my custom with any first-time recipe, I decided to follow the directions precisely and try different additions the next time. So give one of these recipes a try, which provide a way to make something homemade without spending hours in the kitchen. It’s summer — keep it simple!

Watermelon gazpacho 4 cups cubed seedless watermelon, about 1¼ pounds 1 pound ripe tomatoes, quartered or cut into sixths 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, to taste 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Generous ½ cup chopped celery (2 ounces) Salt and freshly ground pepper Thin celery slices or sticks for garnish Working in batches, puree all of the ingredients except the garnish in a blender for 2 minutes or longer until frothy and smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings, making sure you have used enough salt and lemon juice for a vivid flavor. Transfer to a bowl, and chill for several hours. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve, garnishing each bowl with thinly sliced celery or, if serving in glasses, with a thin lengthwise slice of celery stick. Yield: 4 to 6 regular servings or 8 to 12 aperitifs. — Recipe by Martha Rose Shulman, as published in the New York Times.

Clean ice company spearheading cocktail revolution By Mack Burke The Norman Transcript

NORMAN, Okla. — There’s more to ice than meets the eye. No one knows that better than the folks at Vault Ice, a Normanbased company whose sole focus is making the cleanest, clearest ice possible. It’s a difference you can see — their specialty cocktail ice cubes are stunningly clear — but there’s more to it than that. Or, more aptly, less to it. When you freeze ice at home, the water takes on odors and tastes of what’s around it, from cardboard boxes to that questionable carton of ice cream in the back, as it rapidly freezes from the outside in. The same purity concern extends to ice machines at commercial restaurants, said Seth Stevenson, Vault’s director of business development (and former stuntman). “Our water is pure, so when it does dilute, you’re not getting

any sediments, any impurities, no weird, funky aroma, because it is frozen in specialty freezers,” he told The Norman Transcript. Vault Ice begins as Norman water. It goes through a rigorous,

three-stage filtration process that includes reverse osmosis and a UV filter before it is frozen in solid, 300-pound blocks. It is then cut, stamped (if desired) and vacuum-sealed to

ensure a cocktail experience that take top shelf liquor up to 11. Unlike ice blocks and spheres produced with molds, Vault Ice doesn’t have any oxygen trapped inside or cloudiness from contaminants. The result is an unblemished piece of ice that borders on art with all the density of a jawbreaker. Apart from its sleek, sophisticated aesthetic appeal, Stevenson said Vault Ice delivers something no other ice does: true, unadulterated flavor. “Distillers spent 15 years bottling your favorite spirit so you can enjoy it,” he said. “Do you really want to ruin that with bad ice?” Because it melts more slowly, due to less surface area and the lack of trapped oxygen, Vault Ice dilutes drinks at a much slower rate. With regular ice, for instance, a drink can undergo a 3-ounce dilution in 10 minutes. A drink with a single cube of Vault Ice experiences just a 1-ounce dilution in the same amount of time.

As Stevenson explains, it brings the olfactory elements of spirits to the top while pushing the ethanol “burn” to the bottom for a smooth and balanced delivery. “The main thing is, (well ice) creates so much water that it creates a pool, a surface area on top of the water that removes all of the scent. And if you can’t smell something, you can’t taste it. “So, the experience for a Vault Ice user is very different. You’re getting the most pure, most authentic version of a drink on the rock that you can get.” Once you’ve had Vault Ice, Stevenson, now a self-described ice snob, said you’ll never go back to “freezer funk” cocktails. The specialty ice is available at some Norman establishments, like The Winston and Scratch, and Stevenson said that list is growing. But you don’t have to go out to enjoy the perfect cocktail. Vault Ice is now available at some area liquor stores, as well, for about $1 See ice, Page A8

I’m a beautician and LET ME curl you hair!” I agreed and that is how we became forever friends. I am forever grateful to a perfect stranger. She cut, curled and gave me perms for a few years. Only one mishap, though. I was getting remarried and moved to Daniel’s Lake with the most horriblesmelling, terrible looking water! Like most of the water in this region, the water is not that great. From a scale of 1 being good to 100 being very bad, red smelly, stuff, ours rated 101! White clothes turned red rust. We learned to buy only dark clothes. I needed a perm, as the day of getting married had come after she helped finish my dress. She did her usual wonderful job, perm in, rinsed out and shampooed and rinsed again. She said, “You are not going to like this! Your hair is red!” We had forgotten that rust water and perm solution makes permanent red hair. OH well, nothing to do but live with it. Most people thought I had a new dye job! Leatha, the forever baker, always brought me and the kids an extra loaf of bread or cookies or a few slices of cake when she baked for her family! I was grateful to her, as my income was meager by the time I paid for things we needed. She and Jo Anne shared fish and moose and jellies. Food will bind me to anyone!

Fun

I am fortunate enough to have my three kids close by. Gail has been picking raspberries and sharing them with us. But last week Susan came out to fix my “Country Garden” and Gail dove in and climbed the hill to pull out wayward weeds and little trees and bushes sprouting up. Susan joined in after she groomed my other flower beds. Fixing the Country Garden is not an easy task as you do have to be part mountain goat. This is the first year I have not been able to do that; I am just an old retired goat now! But, the biggest helper was great grandson Bralyn, age 5, who took his favorite big black wagon and picked up the remains of the weeds and brush and twigs and put them in his wagon and hauled them off to the dumping place. He never stopped to play or got bored as he finished to the very end and asked for more! He acted like he had an important job and finished it well! I am so proud of him. Thanks to my two girls that finished until the end themselves, even as hot as it was!! Little Miss Braleigh, age 4, my great granddaughter was the queen of everything that day and kept Grandpa Bob entertained and once in a while stopped her important work of playing to check on us. I LOVE YOU GUYS! Bob and I have to have our eyes worked on in a month in Anchorage and son David and Susan got all the flight schedules and the hotel rooms figured out for us, almost a daylong job. We could have not done that without you both! Thanks very much David! Thanks Susan! I kid her, she should have a shingle hanging on her front door: Lawyer, Insurance and Travel Agent.

Which brings me around to the fact that we are ready for company tomorrow — well, almost! We will have a friendly get-together with other friends this week end AND that will be FUN! I must add that important friends in our lives are Mary Anne and Skipper from Friendship Mission. Our lives changed for the better because of them and our gratitude is immense. Sadly Skipper is no longer here. He’s, I am sure, sitting by the right hand of God, helpin’ out. His memorial at the Mission was Friday. It was a wonderful touching ceremony to a fine man. Mary Anne is continuing and we wish her peace and hope she is getting the rest she needs now. WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!

Susan has been putting extra time at the Ricks Ranch redoing, painting and hanging drapes, cleaning, cleaning and cleaning the Ranch. We love her company and her friendly ideas and chatter.

the job. AADan’s son, Ean, and Chase, son of Shawnda, owner of Bare Threads, came to the rescue. They put another job on hold while they so efficiently dug the hole and found the problem and went to get parts. With the hole repaired and covered up, they made it a most unstressful day of all. Chase was on his hands and knees making sure my Colorado blue spruce trees that I started from seed were not injured in any way. Ean is friendly, smiley and easygoing, confident in what he does. We chatted with them both and we learned we knew everyone they knew and some of their friends and relatives were ours too. It is a pleasure to get to know new people who are young, helpful ambitious and happy too! I may give up negative TV News and just go around looking for new young friends. These were two young men, caring, and helpful to us two old people that used to be able to do that kind of work ourselves. Our problem was we missed our good friend Dan Fenton! Upon seeing a problem, he would jump right in and getter’ fixed — no waiting around — no trying to find someone to solve the problem. He was the problem solver. Hardly a day goes by that we don’t mention his name. Dan rests in peace now. He left forever memories! (P.S., No relation to AADan) John Turnbull is right in the mix of one of our favorite friends and if we have to have major or small things to be repaired he helps with his wisdom and great ideas. He is on leave right now because of an injured back. He has put in many hours at the Ricks Ranch fixin’ and doin’: Thanks JOHN! John, Bob and Dan dubbed themselves as the Three Musketeers and always lent a hand to whoever needed it. Bob is right in there if someone else needs help. We do miss the third Musketeer!

Still, he said Vault remains a cut above, and its Norman operation is poised to continue to grow and innovate. The company, which was founded in 1989 as an ice-carving company, relocated to Norman from Oklahoma City last year. With the move, the company went from a 5,000 square-foot facility to a 25,000 square-foot facility and it now employs roughly 20 people in Norman.

The rollout to 7,000 U.S. locations will be for a limited time, a typical practice in the fast food industry for new products. The chain won’t say how many of the soy-based burgers it’s sold since first introducing them in April, but did say it’s enticing more people to enter its stores. Burger King had been selling the Impossible Whopper in St. Louis, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Miami, Montgomery, Alabama, and Columbus, Georgia, before expanding sales to all of its stores. Impossible Foods, which makes the burgers for Burger King, White Castle and other chains, has been struggling to meet surging demand. The Redwood

City, California, company recently doubled the number of workers at its Oakland plant and produced a record number of burgers in June, but demand is still outpacing production. On Thursday Impossible Foods announced a new manufacturing partnership with Illinois’ OSI Group, one of the world’s largest food producers. Impossible Foods says that partnership will help quadruple production of the Impossible Burger by the end of this year. The Impossible Whopper has a suggested retail price of $5.59, Burger King said. That’s 50 cents more than a regular Whopper and the same price as a Whopper with cheese.

Nelson retires after memorable run with Packers By Keith Jenkins AP Sports Writer

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Jordy Nelson’s NFL career ended in the same place where it began: Lambeau Field. Nelson signed a one-day contract with the Packers on Tuesday and announced his retirement after 11 seasons, 10 of which he spent in Green Bay. “I’ll be remembered as a Packer,” the 34-year-old wide receiver said. “Obviously I enjoyed my year last year in Oakland. But this is where I started and it’s great to come back and end it that way.” Nelson was known for his speed, size and chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was the starter for Nelson’s entire tenure in Green Bay. Rodgers’ face lit up as he spoke about his former teammate, who shook hands with both Packers and Texans players following the teams’ joint practice. “Just the little things, the unspoken connection, the back-shoulder throws, the ability to throw it out to a spot and know he’s going to be there,” Rodgers said. “We just

always had that little ability to click on the field. Excited about him in four years. I said, ‘I hope I’m on the short list of guys to introduce you for the Packer Hall of Fame.’” The pair won a Super Bowl after the 2010 season, and Nelson was a big part of the 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, catching nine passes for 140 yards and a touchdown that he called his most cherished memory. “To be able to be there and have that opportunity to score a touchdown there,” Nelson said. “To have that football. My son (Royal) turned 1 that week. ... I still remember being down on the field with him and my wife.” Nelson ranks third in Packers history in receptions (550), fifth in receiving yards (7,848), second in touchdown catches (69) and third in 100-yard receiving games (25). He is the only player in franchise history to record three seasons with 13-plus touchdown receptions. Nelson and Sterling Sharpe are the only Packers players to have three straight seasons with 85 catches or more. “When him and Aaron really

started getting on the whole backshoulder thing, it was just kind of an unstoppable thing,” Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said. “They kind of would toy with opponents.” The Packers drafted Nelson in the second round in 2008 out of Kansas State. He emerged as Rodgers’ favorite target in the 2011 season following that Super Bowl triumph, with 15 touchdown catches on a team that went 15-1. “For me, keeping it simple is what did it,” he said. “There wasn’t much extra stuff.” Nelson missed the 2015 season with a torn ACL. He returned in 2016 and had 97 catches for 1,257 yards and a league-best 14 touchdowns, earning Comeback Player of the Year honors. But he struggled in 2017, when Rodgers was limited to seven games because of injury, and the Packers released him in the offseason. Nelson spent last season with the Raiders. He had 63 receptions for 739 yards and three touchdowns for a team that finished 4-12.

Astros hit 4 HR’s, make Greinke winner HOUSTON (AP) — Zack Greinke labored through six innings but wound up with a win in his Astros debut as Houston hit four home runs Tuesday night to beat the Colorado Rockies 11-6. Playing in front of a season-high crowd of 43,243, the AL West leaders won their fifth straight. Yuli Gurriel hit two homers, Yordan Alvarez added a two-run drive and Carlos Correa homered and drove in three runs. Greinke (11-4), a six-time All-Star who was traded from Arizona on Wednesday, yielded seven hits and five runs with two walks and two strikeouts. He left with the

game tied at 5, tagged by Raimel Tapia’s three-run homer in the sixth. But Houston scored two runs in the bottom of the inning, highlighted by Correa’s home run, to give Greinke his first win since July 5.

YANKEES 9, ORIOLES 4 BALTIMORE (AP) — New York continued its home run binge against Baltimore, hitting six more and getting three RBIs from Austin Romine in its 14th consecutive win at Camden Yards. One night after going deep five times,

the Yankees went one better against the Orioles’ beleaguered pitching staff. Mike Tauchman and DJ LeMahieu went backto-back in the third inning and Brett Gardner and Cameron Maybin did the same in the ninth. Didi Gregorius also connected, and Romine contributed a solo shot and a two-run double.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons has explained a social media post that seemed to imply he’d been racially profiled by security staff at a Melbourne casino by saying he and his friends felt “singled out.” Simmons posted a video on Instagram in which he asked why he and two black friends were asked for identification but another person in their group who is white was not. He deleted the post Tuesday morning, when it started making news and after the casino issued a statement saying its security staff routinely did ID checks on anyone who appears younger than 25. The 23-year-old Simmons, who recently became the highest-paid Australian athlete when he signed a fiveyear, $170 million contract extension with the 76ers, apparently wasn’t recognized by security at one of the casino’s entry points Monday night. But he was allowed in at a second entry point after providing identification. After appearing at a charity event Tuesday, he posted on Twitter to explain his earlier video. “As you know an incident happened last night at Crown and my friends and I felt personally singled out, no one likes to feel like

this,” the Melbourne-born Simmons said in a tweet. “I am very passionate about equality and I will always speak up even if it means having uncomfortable conversations.” The casino issued a statement saying its “internal security policy requires our security officers to check identification of those persons they believe to be under the age of 25, this is an enhanced safeguard to ensure that no one under the age of 18 is permitted entry to the casino floor as required by law. “The group subsequently provided identification and were permitted entry ... (we) strenuously reject reports that it discriminated against a group of visitors last night.” Simmons, whose father is African American, did not explain why he deleted the post. Reports in Australian media said he was staying at a hotel connected to the casino. Simmons was selected for the Australian squad for some exhibition games against the U.S. team in Melbourne later this month and for the world championships in China starting next month, but he withdrew to focus on his preparations for the next NBA season.

McDonald sees positive changes in Steelers, Roethlisberger By Dan Scifo Associated Press

LATROBE, Pa. (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald noticed a positive change in the organization following last year’s turbulent season. McDonald also noticed a difference in quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the chemistry surrounding the team as a whole after the Steelers missed the playoffs for the first time since 2013. Both changes have him excited for 2019. “I think it’s just an open dialogue and communication, not necessarily with (Roethlisberger), but with all guys,” McDonald said. “It’s not even worth waking up and going through the day mad or angry about a situation or about guys, so you put all of that into open air and let it go. It’s impossible to explain, but it feels very open, free and fun.” Two-time All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell declined to sign his $14.5 million franchise tender last

year and opted to sit out his final season with the Steelers. Wide receiver Antonio Brown, a four-time All-Pro, was benched by coach Mike Tomlin before a mustwin Week 17 home game against Cincinnati. Then he spent the first two months of the offseason doing what he could to force his way out of town before he was ultimately traded to Oakland. McDonald said he never considered Brown a distraction to the team. “No one is perfect,” McDonald said. “He’s such a dynamic player, and the way he handles his business is one that’s very out front and in the open. I’m not going to judge or frown upon that. I loved the guy while I played with him and I think he’s the best receiver that I’ve ever seen.” McDonald did, however, reference team unity as a whole. “I never wish that anyone who walks through the doors and puts

on a Steeler jersey is going to say that they’re more important than the man beside them, or they’re more important than the team,” McDonald said. “That’s not the mentality that we need, and when you get too much of that, things start to crumble. I’m not saying (Brown) had that, but it’s something we absolutely have to stay away from.” McDonald feels confident that Roethlisberger will have another strong season after the two-time Super Bowl winner led the NFL in passing and broke the franchise record with 34 touchdowns. “He’s the best there is,” McDonald said. “I believe it when he says that he’s going to be the best he’s ever been this year. This is only the second camp that I’ve been to with him and just his whole approach and demeanor is completely different this year. I think he’s ready and willing to do everything that it takes to win another championship.” McDonald played in 15 games,

making 14 starts last season. He established career highs with 50 catches for 610 yards, while also tying a personal best with four touchdowns. McDonald wants to build on that this season. “At the end of the day, I want to do whatever it takes to win,” McDonald said. “If it ends up coming my way, I’m absolutely going to accept that. If the ball finds me more this year, I’ll gladly take it.” McDonald, a second-round pick in 2013, spent his first four seasons in San Francisco. The Steelers acquired the 29-year-old in a trade two weeks before the start of the 2017 regular season, and he has developed into the leader of a tight end room filled with younger talent. McDonald looks to step into more of a leadership role on the offense this season. He also wants to help fill the void following the offseason departures of Brown and Bell. “You never want to enter in

a position where you think you arrived or hit a ceiling,” McDonald said. “There’s always room for improvement and training camp is a great place to dive deeper into that, not only for relationships, but also your game.”

Cards’ Murray getting ready for 1st preseason game By Jose M. Romero Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals don’t often get much buzz for

preseason games. But this year is different because of the NFL debut of Kyler Murray. The No. 1 overall choice in this year’s draft is set to face an opponent for

Frontier Community Services hosts Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Family Education and Workforce Development program August 1, 2019

Frontier Community Services (FCS) is hosting an upcoming weeklong intensive workshop and listening session serving individuals, their families and the Kenai Peninsula Borough community affected by FASD. Since 2001, the State of Alaska has funded Frontier Community Services to provide services around FASD including a FASD Multi-disciplinary Diagnostic Team. FCS has also served as the regional hub for FASD Services and other developmental needs.  Now, the State of Alaska FASD Program has funded FCS to coordinate a pilot Family Education and Workforce development program in the Kenai Peninsula Borough.  FCS has contracted Whitecrow Village from Canada to provide their Life Sessions camp as a framework to initiate the Alaska edition that will offer families living in the Kenai Peninsula Borough living with FASD important training. Families attending have already been introduced to basic issues but require additional support to address their own needs but importantly take back what they learn to their local communities. Each family attending has agreed to be the point of contact and champion for FASD in their local community. Deb Evensen, internally known FASD educational consultant who has worked with KPBSD for decades is also working on the program. Alaskan young adults affected by FASD will be trained to become employed staff for future programs.   There are often educational opportunities for the public, support groups for caregivers, and other events that continually raise awareness about the risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Yet, there continue to be significant gaps in the way our community can help those families and the individuals with FASD be successful at school, on the job, in social settings, and in relationships. The State of Alaska is aware of the statewide (and probably global) problem and is often seeking steps to keep the communities strong in their efforts to deal with an expansive and complex problem. In light of this, the Kenai Peninsula has been chosen by the State to participate in a pilot project to address some of these issues. The Peninsula will be hosting a weeklong camp including six Peninsula families, chosen for their leadership potential, to come together with the director and staff of a highly successful program in British Columbia called White Crow. The director of White Crow, Kee Warner, has years of foster, adoptive, and teaching experience and has worked extensively with Deb Evensen, including the co-authoring of an upcoming book. Kee and staff, Deb, and staff of Frontier Community Services will convene this week at an undisclosed location for a week of training, mentorship, equipping, and fellowship as a springboard for future camps and opportunities to better serve the FASD population statewide. Following the camp will be a “transitioning into adulthood” listening circle of parents with kids experiencing FASD who are entering adulthood and the workforce and struggling with issues including the difficult balance of independence and support. The Whitecrow staff, State of Alaska FASD Program Manager, Hope Finkelstein,  Deb Evensen, and Frontier staff will also be present for this. These will both be excellent opportunities to increase the community capacity and add to the great work that is already taking place here and to expand the concepts to other Alaskan communities.

the first time Thursday night. He isn’t likely to play much against the Los Angeles Chargers, and the Cardinals won’t show much of the offense of new head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Murray, who will turn 22 on Wednesday, admitted it will be odd to play a game that doesn’t count, other than getting ready for the regular season. “I’m looking forward to having fun,” Murray said Tuesday. “It’s going to be different suiting up in a Cardinals jersey. Not playing for a school, you’re representing a state.” Kingsbury has a specific number of snaps in mind for Murray, but added that playing time could be adjusted depending on how the game is going. Murray just doesn’t want to make his coach look bad for Kingsbury’s 40th birthday, which is Friday. “Not to say we’re going to feel great when he comes out of the game, but you’d like him to have a positive outlook and have accomplished what we’ve set out to do, and that’s execute our offense and control what we can control at that position,” Kingsbury said. “I’m sure he’ll be more amped than nervous. He’s a competitor and he gets the butterflies just like everyone else. He loves when the lights are on.” Murray’s calm demeanor has impressed coaches and teammates. Wide receiver Christian Kirk said Murray displayed confidence from Day 1 of training camp. “To be kind of pushed in as the guy, there’s no kind of grace period of leading him in with any veteran presence at that position,” Kingsbury said. “He’s remained humble. He’s remained diligent in his work habits, so I’ve been proud of that for him.” Kingsbury also makes his NFL head coaching debut Thursday against the

Chargers. “I feel like the players are anxious to go against somebody else, and it’s that point in camp,” Kingsbury said. “Seeing one color jersey for a long time throughout offseason, throughout training camp and now guys are excited to compete against another team.”

Redskins to offer gambling-focused preseason telecast The Washington Redskins will become the first NFL team to have a gamblingfocused telecast of their games, offering cash prizes to viewers who correctly predict in-game outcomes during the preseason. The telecasts on the regional cable network NBC Sports Washington will follow a formula established by the Redskins’ NBA neighbors, the Washington Wizards. The Wizards, however, offered the free-to-play contests during the regular season, while the Redskins will have them only during the four preseason games, when NBC Sports Washington has TV rights. The network will continue to offer a traditional telecast on its main channel, while the gambling-focused telecast will air simultaneously on its secondary channel, NBC Sports Washington Plus. The Wizards offered the alternate telecast on eight games this season, and they saw increased ratings and fan engagement, said Damon Phillips, the network’s general manager. Starting the interactive telecasts now allows the network to be ready when legal online or mobile sports betting becomes available in its viewing area, Phillips said. The network in theory could accept real-time wagers on proposition bets offered during the telecast if it partnered with a sportsbook.

Request for Proposal Community Needs Assessment for Comprehensive Tribal Victim Assistance The Kenaitze Indian Tribe is seeking a vendor to provide a Community Needs Assessment for the Comprehensive Tribal Victim Assistance Program to identify, clarify and bring forth appropriate strategic opportunities for capacity building, program development, regional partnerships and sustainability in regards to Tribal criminal justice and public safety needs. Findings will drive the development of a nationally recognized best-practice model and toolbox resource to implement more client-centered, culturally sensitive programming, resources and measurable outcomes for Alaska Native and American Indian children and families. This process will occur in conjunction with the DOJ Training and Technical Assistance Division within the 2016 CTAS approaches.

DEAR ABBY: I was date raped seven years ago, and the man who assaulted me gave me genital herpes. I’m not someone who has ever slept around. After the rape, I told no one. I didn’t go to the police. I didn’t go to the doctor to get checked right away because I was scared the doctor would report the rape to the police and my family would find out. I felt ashamed and dirty. Two months later, I finally found the courage to see a doctor. I realized I had genital herpes because I got a sore and went to get tested. I’m now friends with a guy and feel like every time I meet someone I have to tell him I have herpes because I’m not the kind of person who lies or keeps secrets. My friend seems really interested in me, and I know I need to tell him. I feel like my life is over, and I’ll never be able to have kids or marry because of this disease. It’s like the man who raped me has killed my social life and my desire to live.

Please help me, Abby. I have no idea what to do. Should I just stay alone or try to get my life back? — STRESSED AND ANXIOUS IN PUERTO RICO DEAR STRESSED: For heaven’s sake, take your life back! It is far from over. Go online and research the prevalence of STDs among teens and young adults in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The statistics will be an eye-opener for you and may reassure you that you are not alone in having herpes. This information should be shared with your sexual partners before becoming intimate. Medications can lessen the chance of transmission. Your doctor or a clinic worker can advise you. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH If you relate on an individual level, the results will be far better. You need to focus on each issue, call or interaction that heads toward you. Let your imagination fill in the gaps, yet know that you could be off. Listen to what is shared. Tonight: Go for a close encounter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Try to get through a hassle without making a big deal. At least try to make it look as if you flowed through. Another person’s curiosity could be piqued, making him or her want to get to know you

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You recognize how much you need to clear out before you can relax and go with the flow. Do not push someone too hard or have this person carry more responsibilities than normal. You could find that he or she cops an attitude that you would prefer not to deal with. Tonight: Pace yourself.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You might want to be more creative and upbeat in dealing with a work associate or person you often say hi to. Perhaps the time has come to say yes to an opportunity or invitation that will allow you to get to know each other better. Tonight: Romp the night away.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Your imagination could go haywire when sharing a playful moment with a child or loved one. Your feelings might come up quickly in dealing with a difficult associate. Be diplomatic and avoid the hassle. Tonight: Happiest close to home.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

HHHH Curb a need to be possessive or have others agree with you. You could be dealing with finances, which could make it even more difficult to get a consensus. A family member offers a suggestion. Tonight: Happy at home.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Be ready to take the lead and make a long-term wish a reality. Honor a new possibility and check it out before committing to any certain path. Choose what is most workable and creates the best product. Tonight: Join a co-worker for munchies.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH You know you have a problem resolved. In fact, in hindsight, what you thought was a problem was simply a pebble on the road of life. You might want to get past or not deal with someone who is a downer -- at least for today. Tonight: Kicking up your heels.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Reach out for someone at a distance. This person knows how to make you smile when you feel down. Open up to new ideas and look at a situation from a distance. You easily could come up with a unique idea. Tonight: Be responsive to the unusual.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HH The less you initiate and commit to at the moment, the better off you will be. The situation will change in a few days. You could feel as if timing is working with you at that point. Tonight: Get extra R and R.

NORWEGIAN MEATBALLS

Rubes | Leigh Rubin

HHHHH It might be time to stop stepping back and thinking a decision through. You could find that you never make a decision as you question this or that. Emphasize your friends and a long-term desire. Tonight: Jump into a social situation.

SUDOKU Solution

hints from heloise — Heloise

Dear Heloise: I once had your recipe for Norwegian Meatballs, but I misplaced it. Would you please print that recipe so I can make it for my mother’s birthday party? She’s always loved them, and so do I. — Bianca P., Wilmington, Del. Bianca, thank you for the compliment! The Norwegian Meatballs are always a favorite at family/ friends gatherings. Here it is: Norwegian Meatballs Season the ground meat with ginger and nutmeg to taste. Form into small meatballs and brown well in butter or margarine. Remove the meatballs from the pan and make a flour gravy from the drippings. Return the meatballs to the gravy and simmer until done. Serve with mashed or boiled potatoes. To make the gravy even more delicious, add a bit of sour cream to it at the very last moment before serving.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

HHHHH Do not allow another person to challenge or intimidate you. Someone around you could be unusually insightful but challenging at times. This person often seems sarcastic. You might want to close down rather than deal with his or her issues. Tonight: Be playful.

WINE, FRUIT OF THE VINE Dear Heloise: I don’t remember what kinds of wine to serve with different meats. Please help me get it right, because I’m having guests over for dinner on Labor Day, and I’m afraid I’ll look like a country bumpkin. — Patty W., Beaver Crossing, Neb. Patty, the following should help: Beef: pinot noir, merlot, cabernet or shiraz Pork: chardonnay Chicken: sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, dry riesling, pinot grigio Lamb: shiraz, merlot or cabernet sauvignon Fish: chardonnay, pinot grigio, dry riesling Pasta with red sauce: pinot noir, merlot, cabernet Pasta with cream sauce: sauvignon blanc — Heloise

This year, you will be unusually quiet and often extremely intense. Others might treat you with more respect and care as a result. If single, the person you choose today might not work for you in a year or two. Go through a complete year before committing. If attached, you might be hitting a bump or two as your sweetie adjusts to the “more serious” you. Be open to his or her ideas and suggestions. SCORPIO understands you well.
