arrested after missing kids

are found

SEWARD — Alaska State Troopers say three missing children have been found safe with their mother, who was arrested along with the children’s father. Troopers say 40-yearold Melissa Salgado and 46-year-old Jeffrey Erickson were arrested on charges of custodial interference Friday. Troopers say 4-year-old Slate Erickson, 7-year-old Jedidiah “Fox” Erickson and 9-year-old Pepper Erickson were wrongfully removed from a Seward foster home Monday night, and their mother also was missing. Troopers say the children were found safe Friday with Salgado in Cordova. Troopers said the foster couple released the children to a woman who claimed to be sent by the Office of Children Services and gave a name of someone they anticipated, but turned out not to be that person. Troopers say the children were returned to state custody. Trooper spokesman Ken Marsh says he doesn’t know why the children were in a foster home. It’s unclear if the parents have attorneys.

Wounded Warriors hit the Kenai River The 13th annual fishing trip is provided free of charge to active-duty soldiers By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

For members of the military, especially those deployed overseas, vacations can be few and far between. That’s where organizations like the Kenai River Foundation have stepped in, to give men and women in uniform a chance to relax and bond while reeling in a few fish. The Kenai River Foundation hosted its 13th annual Wounded Warriors fishing

trip on Friday and Saturday and brought 68 active duty soldiers stationed in Alaska down to the peninsula to fish for salmon on the Kenai River. The trip is free for the soldiers and is made possible thanks to donations from sponsors including the Central Peninsula Hospital, Alaska Communications, Fairweather, LLC, Price Gregory International and Siemens Building Technologies.

Professional fishing guides volunteered their services for the two days and riders from several chapters of the American Legion provided a military escort for the buses that brought the soldiers primarily stationed at the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson to and from Anchorage. When asked why the American Legion started providing the escorts five years ago, one of the riders, Craig “Blue” Breshears simply pointed at the soldiers coming off the fishing boats.

Native American children adoption law upheld By KEVIN McGILL Associated Press

to waste management in the U.S. The bill would also create a public-private partnership fund that focuses on research for waste management and environmental technologies for plastics. He explained that some researchers would like to create a new kind of plastic that would biodegrade in salt water. Sullivan called this yet-to-bediscovered technology the “Holy Grail,” and said there would be an incentive prize from the fund for technologies of this kind. Save Our Seas 2.0 is still in the works, he said, but it is moving quickly and has a lot of bipartisan as well as private support, according to the senator. “The way you get things done in D.C. is you get all the key stakeholders aligned, and it looks like they’re all aligned,” Sullivan said.

NEW ORLEANS — A 1978 law giving preference to Native American families in foster care and adoption proceedings involving American Indian children is constitutional, a federal appeals court ruled Friday, reversing a lower court judge in a case fraught with emotional arguments over adoptive families being “torn apart” and the urgency of protecting tribal families and cultures. The decision from a three-judge panel the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal in New Orleans upholds the Indian Child Welfare Act in a lawsuit involving non-Indian families in multiple states who adopted or sought to adopt Native American children. Opponents of the law called it an unconstitutional race-based intrusion on states’ powers to govern adoptions. But the 5th Circuit majority disagreed, saying the law’s definition of an “Indian child” is a political classification. The opinion by Judge James L. Dennis said the U.S. Supreme Court has long recognized that Congress has broad power to regulate Native American tribes. And it said the act’s definition of Indian child is broad. “As Defendants explain, under some tribal membership laws, eligibility extends to children without Indian blood, such as the descendants of former slaves of tribes who became members after they were freed, or the descendants of adopted white persons,” Dennis wrote. “Accordingly, a child may fall under ICWA’s membership eligibility standard because his or her biological parent became a member of a tribe, despite not being racially Indian.” The decision was a victory for the U.S. Justice Department, which defended the law, and supporters who say the law is needed to protect and preserve Native American culture and families. “We are pleased that the court followed decades of legal precedent in its ruling, preserving a law that protects Indian children and allows them to retain their identity by staying within their families and tribal communities,” leaders of the Cherokee, the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, the Oneida Nation and the Quinault Nation said in a joint press release. Tyson Johnston, vice president of the tribal council of the Quinault Indian Nation in Tahola, Washington, was one of numerous

Kasilof woman trying to cross glacier dies in fall ANCHORAGE — A Kasilof woman died when she fell while trying to cross a glacier. Alaska State Troopers say 57-year-old Leslie Lahndt was killed in the fall on Penny Royal Glacier in the Hatcher Pass area. Lahndt, her daughter and a friend were hiking Sunday. Troopers say Lahndt slid several hundred yards down the glacier into rocks. Lahndt’s daughter and the friend climbed down and verified that Lahndt had died.

By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

The first ever KidFest, hosted by PCHS at the Peninsula Center Mall in Soldotna on Saturday, provided hundreds of kids and parents the opportunity to stock up on school supplies while also learning valuable lessons about staying healthy and safe. Every kid that participated was given a “report card” that had a list of all the booths stationed throughout the mall. After visiting each booth, participating in a game or learning activity and getting a stamp of approval, the kids could return

completed report cards for a backpack full of school supplies. One of the booths was staffed by the PCHS Dental team, and they had a row of sugary drinks like sodas and juices with bags of sugar next to them to highlight how much sugar is in each, as well as a photo of some teeth that were in bad shape because of tooth decay. “That’s gross,” Sheila Thomsen said while looking at the teeth and the bags of sugar. “I only drink soda every once in a while.” Thomsen is going into the third grade at Aurora Elementary School. Her mom Jennifer has already been

teaching her about the importance of avoiding sugary drinks. Jennifer said that Sheila had heard about KidFest on the radio and expressed excitement about going. “She listens to the radio more than I do, and one day she said ‘Mom, don’t forget KidFest is coming up!’” Marquitta Andrus, manager of marketing and outreach for KidFest, said that the turnout for their first year was even better than they expected. Even though Sweeney’s Clothing provided 200 backpacks for the occasion, Andrus said that they were set to run out by about halfway through the day.

Matthew Sturm reflects on snow research career By Erin McGroarty Associated Press

FAIRBANKS — Matthew Sturm has no intention of ending his decades-long career in snow research anytime soon. “The focus of my research has always been snow, what it does for people, for ecosystems, for water, you name it,” Sturm said. “It’s been my focus for close to 40 years now.” But things are changing and some adjustments may be tougher than others, he noted. “Snow plays a lot of roles, but it does that because it covers so much of the Earth,” Sturm said. “When you think about snow, it’s kind of like thinking about air. You don’t ask questions about air, but without it, the world we live in, we couldn’t live in. That’s why it’s so important to pay attention to it and how it’s changing.” Sturm grew up in New Mexico, but spent much of his childhood dreaming of the North. “I was in love with Alaska. I was a young boy reading heroic stories of adventure,” Sturm said. “So, I enlisted in the Coast Guard and first came up on an icebreaker and then was later stationed in the Aleutians.” Sturm returned to New

Mexico, where he met his wife, for his bachelor’s degree in geology from New Mexico Tech. He and his wife soon returned to Alaska, where he began his master’s degree at the University of Alaska Fairbanks on glacier and volcano interactions on Mount Wrangell. He soon followed his master’s degree with a doctorate, completed under the advising of Arctic researcher Carl Benson. The thesis focused on heat and mass transfer in snow as an insulator. “I got more and more interested in snow, so my Ph.D. was actually done in the field next to West Valley High School — very exotic,” Sturm said with a laugh. “I looked at the insulation value of snow, which turns out to have a lot of practical issues associated with it including how we build pipelines in this state.” At the end of his doctorate program, Sturm was offered a position studying snow and permafrost for the U.S. Army at the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, where he worked for 27 years. But, he said, he stayed connected with the university throughout and his love for the institution ultimately brought him back. “I was always involved with the university even when I was with the Cold Regions lab

as a researcher,” Sturm said. “I’ve had students throughout that time, co-chaired things, I was always involved here with the Geophysical Institute.” Sturm said he’s always been drawn to the mysteries of snow. “We live with it, we interact with it, we ski with it,” Sturm said. “Everyone has a relationship with snow, whether it’s a love or hate relationship or both. I’ve always loved snow. There’s a huge amount of science to it, too.” Sturm has written a number of books on the topic also, including “Apun: The Arctic Snow” and ” Finding the Arctic: History and Culture Along a 2,500-Mile Snowmobile Journey from Alaska to Hudson’s Bay.” Some may think research is confined to a lab, but Sturm’s studies of snow and the Arctic have taken him all over the world, often on the back of a snowmachine. “I don’t look like a motorhead but I have probably 40,000 miles under

my belt,” Sturm said. These trips have taken him from Nome to Utqiagvik and across Canada. Along the way, Sturm has researched almost every aspect of snow, recently to include the reflective properties of snow across the entire known light spectrum. “We quickly realized that you can look in your backyard, which is cool, but for the big problems humans face, whether it’s climate change, water, anything, then you have to look at snow on a very large scale,” Sturm said. “Snow reflects 80% of solar energy, it’s the radiator of planet Earth. So as the amount of Earth that’s covered by white changes, our ability to get rid of heat changes. Those are some of the issues that need to be attacked on a very big scale. It’s not enough to know what’s happening in Goldstream Valley, we have to know what’s happening in all of Alaska.” Sturm pointed out the

connection between research done through the university system and many of the state’s successes throughout its history, from the knowledge behind Aurora viewing tourism to the trans-Alaska oil pipeline and oil exploration. “Snow is going to play a big role in what happens in the Arctic Refuge, for example, because that’s all going to get done in the winter,” Sturm said. “Well that’s going to require certain snow conditions, up there the issue will be not how much snow but the strength of the snow. They need to know what conditions they could run into our there. We’re really involved in that research and that stands

to benefit the state.” In working with four graduate students this year, Sturm says he is kept on his toes, in a good way, noting that the students give him hope for what appears to be an unknown future these days. “I mean, these students are the future of Alaska and that’s what is so tough about this time right now. This place has been educating Alaskans since 1917,” Sturm said. “And I see it every day, these people are young, they’re energetic, they have new ideas, they’re really the hope of the state. That’s what is so tough about seeing someone essentially trying to tear it down. I don’t understand it.”

cartoon about a 10-yearold Alaska Native girl. After performing, Woosh.ji.een was part of a hands-on session that got kids drumming with some direction from group leader Lyle James. “It was really fun to do it,” Iputi said of the drumming. Iputi, who is Tlingit, said it was her first time playing the instrument, and she was a big fan of the cartoon she watched after the musical performance, too. “It was awesome,” Iputi said. “She explores a lot.” Iputi said it was the first time she has seen an Alaska Native girl in a cartoon. That point resonated with her mom, Autumn. “It’s amazing to see a character that my child can relate to and that is going to teach children around the nation about our culture,” Autumn Iputi said. The episode of “Molly of Denali” shown to the over 100 parents and children in attendance tied into the precartoon entertainment. It told the story of a misplaced drum and an older character’s experiences with forced assimilation. Beginning in the 1800s and lasting well into the 20th century, indigenous students were forced to attend boarding schools where regalia and Native song and dance were forbidden. During a question-andanswer session that followed the screening, a panel spoke to the importance of balancing cultural education, delving into serious topics and creating children’s entertainment. “There’s a really incredible healing factor to watching something like

‘Grandpa’s Drum,’ and I want to acknowledge (Tanana tribal elder) Luke Titus for sharing his story,” said X’unei Lance Twitchell, a Juneauite who is a consultant and writer for the show. “Like we’re sitting with our kids, and they’re watching, and we’re just crying, but it’s good stuff to see that doesn’t just have to be a story that only we hold onto, that we can share that story and there’s a lot more that can be done with it.” Also featured on the panel were Sovereign Bill, the voice of Molly, creative producer Princess Daazhraii Johnson, writer Vera Starbard and writer Frank Henry Kaash Katasse. Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska President Chalyee Éesh Richard Peterson moderated the questionand-answer session. The panel and moderator all spoke to the importance

of putting a positive, contemporary depiction of Alaska Native people on television. “Truly this is the sort of series all of us up here and all of us in the audience wish we had as kids,” Johnson said. “The world needs our Native values. How we take care of one another, how we take care of the land, the animals and the water, and we hope we did our job imbuing that in the series.” Johnson said it’s also important that many Alaska Natives from throughout the state are involved behind the scenes, and she credited producers WGBH Boston with doing a good job of working with Alaska Natives and allowing their voices to tell their stories. “WGBH really went about this the right way because what we’ve seen in the past is people come in and do whatever they want and tell our stories without really

partnering with us as Alaska Native people,” Johnson said. She said it seems likely they will be able to continue telling those stories, too. “It’s looking optimistic that we will get funded for Season 2,” Johnson said. While many commented on the importance of seeing Alaska Native people on screen and knowing they are behind the scenes of the show, Starbard, an Anchorage-based Tlingit writer currently in residence at Perseverance Theatre, said she was happy to see them in the audience. Starbard said she’s been pleased the show has found audiences with Native and non-Native people around North America, but it was especially gratifying to share a “Molly of Denali” with the Juneau audience. “That many Tlingit & Haida kids, that got me right in the feels,” she said. “These are the kids we wrote it for.”

Indiana man enters not guilty pleas in murder plot

Bad weather may have caused fatal plane crash

ANCHORAGE — A 21-year-old Indiana man charged with masterminding the death of a developmentally disabled Anchorage woman has pleaded not guilty to five murder counts. The Anchorage Daily News reports Darin Schilmiller entered his pleas Friday. He’s charged in the death of 19-year-old Cynthia Hoffman, who authorities say was bound and shot in the back of the head. Her body was left in the Eklutna River. Prosecutors say Schilmiller plotted the killing, posing online as a millionaire named Tyler and offering 19-year-old Denali Brehmer $9 million to “rape and murder someone in Alaska.” Authorities allege Brehmer got four teenagers to help carry out the plot. Schilmiller on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to federal child pornography charges. Federal prosecutors allege he directed Brehmer to sexually assault a 15-year-old and send him images.

ANCHORAGE — A Southeast Alaskan pilot had told family members the weather might be bad before his single-engine plane was found crashed, a report said. An investigation began after the July 11 crash killed 68-year-old Wrangell pilot and attorney Michael Nash, the Anchorage Daily News reported Friday. Nash was headed to Wrangell, Alaska, from Friday Harbor, Washington, after an annual inspection of his PA-24 Comanche aircraft, the National Transportation Safety Board said. Nash told family members he had six hours of fuel and was planning to stop in Ketchikan to refill because it was cheaper, but that the forecast wasn’t looking good, investigators said. The pilot told controllers in Ketchikan that he was on approach to a runway at the airport, investigators said. “The accident pilot then reported that he ‘was hung up’” investigator Noreen Price said. “There were no further communications received by the pilot.” The Ketchikan Volunteer Rescue Squad, Ketchikan police, Alaska State Troopers, U.S. Coast Guard and local operators searched for about two hours for Nash when he was about three hours overdue to land, officials said. Nash crashed into the side of an 800-foot hill on Gravina Island a few miles south of Ketchikan International Airport, a report said. The weather at the airport had been windy and overcast with scattered clouds, investigators said.

a report said. The 472-foot barge launched in St. Petersburg, Russia, and will continue along the coast to the Bering Strait separating Alaska, the Alaska Public Media reported Thursday. The barge, named Akademik Lomonosov, is the world’s first floating nuclear power plant, Russian officials said. Akademik Lomonosov has already journeyed to Murmansk to refuel while receiving a new Russian flag paint job and will continue to Pevek, Russia, where it will dock about 1,250 miles from Anchorage, officials said. There are concerns about potential radiation the barge could produce in the northwest region. “Radiation effects. Environmental effects - we’ve been worried about for quite some time in this era of increased shipping, less sea ice,” said Austin Ahmasuk, a marine advocate for Kawarek, the Native non-profit serving the Bering Straits area. The barge is mounted with two nuclear reactors capable of powering a city about the size of Fairbanks and will provide heat and power to the mining region, Russian officials said. Akademik Lomonosov is expected to begin producing power in December, officials said. Despite concerns, this new development could help increase communication between Russia and the United States. — Associated Press

This bill would encourage pro-bono work from lawyers to provide legal services for domestic violence victims “with the goal of literally having an army of lawyers who can do this,” he said. The bill would provide victims of domestic violence with a lawyer, similar to how someone charged with a crime can be provided a public defender. “Studies show that the best way to get a victim out of the cycle of violence that

“These gentlemen and ladies right here. That’s why we got involved,” Breshears said. Nineteen riders made up the escort this year, and Breshears said that they do it as a gesture of appreciation to the soldiers. Most of the soldiers caught their limit on Friday and Saturday, and the more than 540 salmon caught were frozen and distributed evenly among all the participants, leaving no cooler unfilled. Friday night also featured a banquet with prime rib and prize giveaways, and Saturday afternoon included a barbecue at Centennial Park. Spc. Gabriel Rodriguez had a lot of good things to say about the trip after he got off the boat on Friday. “I’ve done a little bit of fishing in Alaska, like on Bird Creek and the Russian (River), but this experience on the Kenai was probably the craziest one,” Rodriguez said. “The fish were constant and consistent. Put up a good fight. And the experience that this organization put on for us, it’s something that you’d have to pay a lot of money to do.”

the inability to have legitimate policy differences,” Dunleavy spokesman Matt Shuckerow said in an email responding to the corporation’s announcement. “While some will focus on political gamesmanship, Gov.

she often finds herself in is to get that person a lawyer. Then they can get protective orders, and they can use the law as a kind of a shield and a sword,” Sullivan said. Lastly, Sullivan talked about his Coast Guard bill, which provides money for what the senator referred to as “assets and infrastructure,” ships, aircraft and places for them to be maintained. “We’re building up not just the military throughout Alaska, but the Coast Guard,” he said. “More ships, more aircraft, even Navy ships. More infrastructure — it’s happening.” He said he is encouraging the Navy to increase its presence in the Arctic, and that the U.S. is way behind many of its regional competitors. “There’s the entire strategic competition that’s starting to happen in the Arctic domain,” he said. “With the Russians and the Chinese and the sea ice receding, sea

lanes opening up, resources and transportation routes, we’re very much behind in terms of infrastructure.” But Washington has been more responsive recently, and in his, bill Sullivan included more appropriations for ice-breaker ships and infrastructure projects. Before he left the offices he was asked about the mass shooting that took place over the weekend in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. He said that Alaska was unique in terms of its use of firearms in ways that can’t compare to other states. “Of course it’s sickening and heartbreaking,” Sullivan said, but cautioned that rhetoric not turn too political. “When you look at what is the common thread, it’s the social alienation of young men, often sick young men fueled by social media. The problem is not legally owning a firearm but who owns the firearm.”

Staff Sgt. Richard Ellis, who’s from Alaska and has been active duty in the Army for the last 14 years, also recognized the significance of having the professional guides volunteer their services for the two days. “These volunteers make their living being fishing guides, and they’re setting aside two days for us. That could easily be a thousand bucks out of their pockets,” Ellis said. “They were awesome, courteous and fun, and I couldn’t ask for more.” Many of the soldiers didn’t have injuries or wounds that were readily noticeable, but Ellis explained that, for members of the military, the wounds they carry can be more than just physical. “Not all wounds are on the outside. A lot of us carry them on the inside,” Ellis said. Ellis said that the fishing trip is something that many soldiers miss out on because they think it will come with some out-of-pocket expenses, but that’s not the case. Everything is provided at no cost, from the room and board to the fishing poles. “Everything was

streamlined. I’m not really a person that likes to be catered to, but I decided to let my guard down and see what happens, and I didn’t have to worry about a thing,” Ellis said. “Rooms were provided, food was provided, I didn’t have to buy any bait … All I had to do was pack my bag. It don’t get no easier than that.” Ellis learned about the trip almost at the last minute but was still able to sign up in time and encouraged his neighbor, Staff Sgt. Louigy Buduan, to do the same. “I think a lot of soldiers have that mentality that you (Ellis) have about not wanting to be catered to, so they don’t know what to expect,” Buduan said. “It’s really a great thing that the community has come together and provided this opportunity for us.” Sgt. Sam Ober said that he had never had an experience quite like the one provided by the Wounded Warriors fishing trip. “Not even close,” Ober said. “It was really relaxing. And not even just catching the fish, but being on the boat and out on the water. It was a good time.”

Time has come for an even playing field

oments after the U.S. women’s national soccer team beat the Netherlands 2-0 and secured its fourth Women’s World Cup victory last month, the crowd in Lyon, France, erupted in cheers — and began an unusual chant that might have been more typical of a political rally. “Equal pay. Equal pay. Equal pay,” thundered through the stadium. The apparently spontaneous reaction was meant as a show of solidarity with the women players, who are embroiled in a legal fight with the U.S. Soccer Federation over claims that the winning women’s team is paid less than the less-victorious men’s national soccer team. (For what it’s worth, the federation denies this and, in fact, last week federation President Carlos Cordeiro said in an open letter that, actually, women have been paid more than men in recent years. Both the women’s team and the national men’s team say that’s not true.) The stadium in France soon emptied, but the message continues to reverberate. That’s due in large part to the players themselves, and particularly the team’s brightest star, Megan Rapinoe, who has continued to push the public discussion about gender pay disparities, and hopefully will continue to do so on their victory tour (which came to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on Saturday). “I’m going to fight for equal pay every day for myself, for my team, and for every single person out there,” Rapinoe said on “Meet the Press.” On the one hand, it’s depressing that it requires a sports star of Rapinoe’s stature to focus attention on the reality that, more than half a century after the Equal Pay Act passed, women still face wage disparities in just about every workplace. But we’re glad it is happening and hope it translates into substantive action that benefits women in every profession. Of course, all other things being equal, female athletes should be paid a fair and equal wage for doing substantially the same job that male athletes do, but so should factory workers, food servers and accountants. Women in Congress capitalized on the recent attention on the women’s soccer team pay fight to introduce legislation to address the disparity in both compensation and investment into national sports teams. The “Even Playing Field Act” would amend the Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act in two significant ways. First it would require the national governing bodies of U.S. sports teams to make equitable investments in women’s teams and offer equal pay and wages. And, perhaps more importantly, it would require the governing bodies to report annually to Congress on the compensation of players, coaches, administrators and staff, broken down by race, gender and employment category. It’s a reasonable measure, and should pass with bipartisan support. Even President Trump said he thinks the women soccer players deserve equal pay, kind of. Transparency is one of the most powerful weapons against pay disparity, and is also a major feature of the Paycheck Fairness Act, which has languished in Congress for more than a decade. This legislation prohibits employers from retaliating against workers who share their salary information and requires some employers to report their wage rates for general job classifications. As the women’s soccer players know, public transparency about wages can shift public sentiment. This bill also deserves bipartisan support. The reasons the pay gap persists are complicated and not necessarily caused by deliberate discrimination, but are nevertheless real. Collectively, women make some 20% less than men; it’s even lower for women of color. Some are paid less because their career trajectories took them down different paths or into female-dominated professions that are traditionally valued less than similarly skilled fields dominated primarily by men. But sometimes it’s just because an employer could get away with paying female workers less than men. That’s wrong and these measures could help stop it. This could be a breakthrough moment for the equal pay movement if the soccer team’s exhortations can be turned into real action. — The Los Angeles Times, Aug. 5

Obama, Trump and guns H

ad the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton occurred before last week’s Democratic presidential debates, the discussion about gun violence might have gotten more news coverage. As it was, the candidates dutifully repeated the party’s positions on establishing universal background checks, banning assault weapons and preventing people with a history of domestic violence or mental illness from purchasing firearms. And the subject got less scrutiny than the criticisms aimed at former President Barack Obama. That’s how debates should work, though. Disagreements define the candidates more than the viewpoints they share. What makes this story different is after the debate, some party members argued that Obama’s popularity among registered Democrats makes it unwise to challenge his legacy. One reason why they’re wrong is it contradicts the complaint Democrats have leveled against Republicans who refuse to criticize President Donald Trump. Whether he’s trusting the word of dictators over the nation’s intelligence experts or sending insulting and racist tweets, too few in his party have the courage to speak out against him. Many of them fear voter backlash because Trump’s approval rating among registered Republicans is about the same as Obama’s among Democrats. Obama might not enjoy the criticism. But I think he knows his legacy will always be a subject of debate. And that progress beyond his accomplishments isn’t possible any other way.

That’s true for every problem, including gun violence. In 1994, Democrats passed a 10-year ban on the purchase of assault weapons and large capacity magazines. But as Jesse Ferguson recently wrote in the USA Today, the National Rifle Association (NRA) “exacted its punishment on opponents in Congress.” Among those ousted from office was Tom Foley, the first Speaker of the House to lose a re-election bid in a hundred years. After that, she says, Democrats “shied away from gun safety.” There were several unsuccessful attempts to renew the ban. But having lost control of Congress, those never got out of committee. And after Obama won the presidency and Democrats took back both chambers, the issue took a back seat to rebuilding the economy and reforming the health care insurance market. We’ll never know if any kind of weapons ban could have prevented the shootings last weekend. Or the one in Gilroy, California, a week earlier. Or the 40-plus cases after the ban ended in which a gunman chose a semi-automatic firearm as his murder weapon. Debating the past won’t bring back the hundreds of lives lost. But judging by where we are now, running scared from the NRA hasn’t helped at all. Refraining from intra-party criticism of Obama also reinforces what Gene Healy of the Cato Institute called “The Cult of the Presidency.” His book by that title, published in the waning days of George W. Bush’s presidency, warned how the expansion of executive power that

threatens American liberty is partly the result of voters looking “to the president for salvation from all problems great and small.” Which is exactly the power Trump imagines he brought to the presidency. “I alone can fix it,” he said in his 2016 Republican convention speech after ruminating about government incompetence and corruption. And just last week, he tweeted “only the United States, with me as President” can fix the North Korean problem. Trump hasn’t made the world safer from North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. He’s made it more dangerous with regard to Iran. And the mass shootings in Nevada, California, Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Tennessee and Ohio read like a 31-month record of law and order impotence. One person can’t do it all. For a president to think otherwise is disturbing. For voters to expect it leans toward accepting life under authoritarian rule when the president shares our views. And calling for a revolution if he or she doesn’t. Instead, we must distinguish between the idea and the person. Understanding that, Obama knows the criticism last week wasn’t about him. And the 2020 election isn’t either. In regard to his legacy, there’s one area Obama would agree he failed. Gun violence was rampant during his presidency. But we can’t solve the problems we avoid. And since 1994, congressional Democrats thought the only time it was wise to challenge the NRA’s chokehold on Republicans was after a mass shooting tragedy.

Trump-McConnell 2020? Senate head sets himself up as wingman By Lisa Mascaro Associated Press

WASHINGTON — It’s not quite “Trump-McConnell 2020,” but it might as well be. As he runs for reelection, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is positioning himself as the president’s wingman, his trusted right hand in Congress, transformed from a behindthe-scenes player into a prominent if sometimes reviled Republican like none other besides Donald Trump himself. “In Washington, President Trump and I are making America great again!” he declared at a rally in Kentucky, his voice rising over protesters. Other than Democrat Nancy Pelosi — and more recently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — no current politician has so quickly become such a highprofile object of partisan scorn. McConnell was heckled last weekend at his home state’s annual “Fancy Farm” political picnic, and protesters outside his Louisville house hurled so many profanities that Twitter temporarily shut down his account for posting video of them online. Undaunted, he revels in the nickname he’s given himself — the “Grim Reaper,” bragging that he’s burying the House Democrats’ agenda — though he seems stung by one lobbed by opponents, “Moscow Mitch.”

But the Democrats’ agenda includes gun legislation to require background checks that Trump now wants to consider, forcing McConnell to adjust his earlier refusal to do so. The Senate leader has been here before, pushing ahead with a Trump priority that’s unpopular with most Republicans. But this will test both his relationship with the president and his grip on the GOP majority. All while he’s campaigning to keep his job. McConnell is even more dependent on Trump’s popularity in Kentucky than on his own, a different political landscape from the one he faced in 2014, before the president took the White House. “They need each other,” says Scott Jennings, a longtime adviser to McConnell. The new McConnell strategy shows just how far Trump has transformed the GOP, turning a banker’s-collarand-cufflinks conservative into a “Fake News!” shouting senator. Theirs was not an easy alliance in Trump’s first year, and they went a long stretch without talking to each other. But two years on, McConnell has proven a loyal implementer of the president’s initiatives, and Trump no longer assails the senator on Twitter. Perhaps no issue has drawn the unlikely partners together more than the current reckoning over national gun violence. Republicans, long allied

with the National Rifle Association, have resisted stricter laws on firearm and ammunition sales. But the frequency of mass shootings and the grave toll are intensifying pressure to act. Trump on Friday revived his interest in having Congress take a look at expanding federal background checks and other gun safety laws long pushed by Democrats, insisting he will be able to get Republicans on board. McConnell, in a shift, said he’s now willing to consider those ideas “front and center” when Congress returns in the fall. Said Trump, “I think I have a greater influence now over the Senate.” But McConnell doesn’t call himself the Grim Reaper for nothing. He is well known on Capitol Hill for his legislative blocking skills, having stopped much of the Obama administration’s agenda when he first became Senate leader and more recently halting bills coming from the Democraticcontrolled House, including one to expand background checks. “We’ve seen it before,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in a tweet after the weekend mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. “An awful shooting occurs. realDonaldTrump expresses interest in helping. Republicans try to get him off the hook with lesser measures. Nothing happens.”

Legal tussle over firearms

Gun-control backers concerned about changing federal courts By Don Thompson Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation, including a ban on the type of high-capacity ammunition magazines used in some of the nation’s deadliest mass shootings. How long those types of laws will stand is a growing concern among gun control advocates in California and elsewhere. A federal judiciary that is becoming increasingly conservative under President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate has gun control advocates on edge. They worry that federal courts, especially if Trump wins a second term next year and Republicans hold the Senate, will take such an expansive view of Second Amendment rights that they might overturn strict gun control laws enacted in Democratic-leaning states. The U.S. Supreme Court so far has left plenty of room for states to enact their own gun legislation, said Adam Winkler, a gun policy expert at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law. But he said the success of the Trump administration in appointing federal judges, including to the high court, could alter that. “Those judges are likely to be hostile to gun-control measures,” Winkler said. “So I think the courts overall have made a shift to the right on guns. We’ll just have to see how that plays out.” The legal tug-of-war already is playing out in California. The state banned the sale of high-capacity ammunition magazines nearly two decades ago as

one of its numerous responses to deadly mass shootings; a voter initiative passed three years ago expanded on that, banning all ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds even among gun owners who already possessed them. Earlier this year, a Republican-appointed federal judge overturned the ban, triggering a weeklong bullet buying spree among California gun owners before he put his decision on hold pending appeal. The same judge is overseeing another lawsuit brought by gun-rights groups that seeks to repeal a state law requiring background checks for ammunition buyers. Legal experts, lawmakers and advocates on both sides said the decision in the case over ammunition limits foreshadows more conflicts between Democraticleaning states seeking to impose tighter gun laws and an increasingly conservative federal judiciary. “What you’re looking at in the Southern District of California is happening all over the country,” said Frank Zimring, a University of California, Berkeley law professor who is an expert on gun laws. Trump has the opportunity to fill a higher percentage of federal court vacancies than any president at this point in his first term since George H.W. Bush nearly three decades ago. To date, he has nominated 194 candidates for federal judgeships and has had 146 confirmed, out of 860 total federal district court judicial seats, according to the conservative Heritage Foundation. Of 179 seats on the federal appellate courts, Trump has nominated 46 judges and had 43 confirmed. He

is poised to fill 105 vacancies in the district courts and four in the appeals courts, according to the Heritage Foundation. The changes to the federal judiciary could mean that even gun restrictions that were previously upheld by appointees of former Republican presidents may now be in jeopardy, said Hannah Shearer, litigation director at the San Francisco-based Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. “I think the judiciary is headed into a more extreme place on gun control issues because of President Trump’s appointees,” she said. Even when gun and ammunition limits are upheld, those cases eventually could make their way to the U.S. Supreme Court, where Trump may already have tipped the balance. The court is currently poised to take up its first Second Amendment case in about a decade. It’s a challenge to a law New York City passed that prohibited people who have home handgun licenses from taking their guns outside the city for target practice or to a second home. The city has told the court the case should be dropped, however, because it has relaxed its law. Among other cases working their way through the courts are challenges to a California ban on certain handguns, other states’ longstanding restrictions on carrying concealed weapons and limitations on interstate handgun sales. Yet forecasting how the Supreme Court might act, or even whether it will take certain cases, is fraught with uncertainty. The court has steered clear of gun-rights cases since establishing an individual right to possess guns in 2008 2010,

and has let stand a number of state gun restrictions. Still, gun-rights supporters are excited by the changes brought by Trump and the Republicancontrolled Senate. The upcoming Supreme Court session “could be a real game-changer” with Trump’s appointments of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, said Chuck Michel, an attorney who represents both the National Rifle Association and the affiliated California Rifle & Pistol Association. “To the extent that the composition of the court has changed and that it will give the Second Amendment back its teeth, it’s very important,” Michel said. “It looks like there’s enough votes on the court right now to reset the standard.” His clients are challenging California’s ammunition background check and extended magazine ban before U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez, an appointee of former President George W. Bush. Other states that limit ammunition magazines in some way, typically between 10 and 20 rounds, are Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Vermont, according to the Giffords Law Center. Democrats said the prospect of four more years of Trump judicial appointments is helping energize their opposition to his re-election. “This would be one of the lasting legacies of Donald Trump,” said former California state Senate leader Kevin de Leon, a Democrat from Los Angeles who carried or supported many of the state’s firearms restrictions, including limits on military-style assault weapons. “When Trump is gone, they will be there for lifetime appointments.”

Families in Ohio, Texas bury loved ones Associated Press

DAYTON, Ohio — Mourners gathered across the country Saturday to remember the lives of a graduate student beloved by friends, a man who died in his son’s arms and a mother who shielded her infant from gunfire. The funerals were among several being held for people who died in mass shootings last weekend in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. Investigators in Texas said a gunman opened fire at a Walmart on Aug. 3, targeting Mexicans and killing 22 people. Less than 24 hours later, another shooter killed nine people in a popular Dayton nightlife area. Every seat was filled and the hallways were lined with mourners in Washington, Pennsylvania, at the service for 25-year-old Nicholas Cumer. The graduate student in the master of cancer care program at Saint Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania, was killed in Dayton. Elementary school teachers, high school friends, fraternity brothers and relatives were joined by scores of others as white folding chairs were set up in the parking lot to handle the overflow. “He was just infectious. He had a heart bigger than his chest,” said Pastor Brian Greenleaf of Washington Alliance Church after officiating the service. Greenleaf started the service by saying Cumer would probably be “smiling and laughing throughout this whole service.” “Because the images I have of Nick are just that,” the pastor said. “Heaven is a little bit better today because of Nicholas Cumer.” Hundreds of people, including

Friends and family mourn Derrick Fudge on Saturday, at a church in Springfield, Ohio. Fudge, 57, was the oldest of nine who were killed when a gunman opened fire outside a bar early Sunday in Dayton, Ohio.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, attended Derrick Fudge’s funeral at St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Dayton, the Dayton Daily News reported. Fudge died in the arms of his son, Dion Green. He was remembered as a loving family man who painted houses and loved to fish and cook. Green said his father spoke often of his willingness to die for him. Green previously told the Springfield News-Sun he believes his father protected him from being killed. Green said Saturday

that his father, who was 57, was a great person who was always there to help when needed. In a eulogy for her brother, Twyla Southall said Fudge lived a “simple” life, but one he loved. “I don’t understand why my brother died in his son’s arms, but I am so grateful he was there for his father,” Southall said. Burial services for Saeed Saleh, 38, were also held Saturday morning in Dayton, according to the Daily News. Saleh, who was originally from Eritrea and recently immigrated to the U.S.,

was remembered as a “humble and quiet person” by a spokesman for the family. In El Paso, a requiem Mass was offered for 15-year-old Javier Amir Rodriguez, a high school sophomore and avid soccer player who was at the Walmart with his uncle when he was killed. Burial was also scheduled for Jordan Anchondo, who died shielding her infant son from gunfire. Her 2-month-old son was treated for broken bones, but was orphaned after Jordan and her husband, Andre, were killed.

N. Korea says leader Kim led weapon systems tests Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea said Sunday leader Kim Jong Un supervised test-firings of an unspecified new weapons system, which extended a streak of weapons demonstrations that are seen as an attempt to build leverage ahead of negotiations with the United States. The report by North Korean state media came hours after President Donald Trump said North Korean

leader Kim Jong Un has expressed a desire to meet again to start nuclear negotiations after joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises end and apologized for the flurry of recent short-range ballistic launches that rattled U.S. allies in the region. North Korea’s Foreign Ministry in a separate statement on Sunday blasted South Korea for continuing its military drills with the United States, and it said that future dialogue will be held

strictly between Pyongyang and Washington and not between the Koreas. The report by Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency came a day after South Korea’s military said it detected the North launching what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea. North Korea’s fifth round of weapons launches in less than three weeks was seen as a protest of the slow pace of nuclear

negotiations with the United States and continuance of U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises the North claims are an invasion rehearsal. Experts say T r u m p’s downplaying of the North’s launches allowed the country more room to intensify its testing activity while it seeks to build leverage ahead of negotiations, which could possibly resume after the end of the U.S.-South Korea drills later this month.

U.S. attorney: Epstein abuse probe steadfast despite his death NEW YORK— The FBI and U.S. Inspector General’s office will investigate how Jeffrey Epstein died in an apparent suicide Saturday, while the probe into sexual abuse allegations against the well-connected financier remain steadfast, officials said. Epstein, accused of orchestrating a sex-trafficking ring and sexually abusing dozens of underage girls, had been taken off suicide watch before he killed himself in a New York jail, a person familiar with the matter said. Attorney General William Barr, in announcing the investigation, said he was “appalled” to learn of Epstein’s death while in federal custody. “Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered,” Barr said in a statement. Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Fire officials received a call at 6:39 a.m. Saturday that Epstein was in cardiac arrest, and he was pronounced dead at New York Presbyterian-Lower Manhattan Hospital.

around the world Moscow election protest attracts huge crowd, spurs spinoffs MOSCOW — Tens of thousands of people rallied Saturday against the exclusion of some city council candidates from Moscow’s upcoming election, turning out for one of the Russian capital’s biggest political protests in years. After the rally, which was officially sanctioned, hundreds of participants streamed to an area near the presidential administration building to continue with an unauthorized demonstration. They were confronted by phalanxes of riot police and the arrest-monitoring group OVD-Info said 136 people were detained. The rally was the fourth consecutive weekend demonstration in Moscow over the local election. The determined opposition has prompted protests in other cities, reflecting widespread frustration with Russia’s tightly controlled politics. The protest attracted some 50,000 people, said Beliy Schetchik, an organization that counts public meeting attendance. OVD-Info also said 86 people were arrested Saturday in St. Petersburg at an unsanctioned demonstration in support of the Moscow protests.

India to bring supplies to Kashmir; Pakistan to go to UN NEW DELHI — Authorities enforcing a strict curfew in Indianadministered Kashmir will bring in trucks of essential supplies for an Islamic festival next week, as the divided Himalayan region remained in a lockdown Saturday after India’s decision to strip it of its constitutional autonomy. Pakistan said that with the support of China, it will take up India’s unilateral actions in Kashmir with the U.N. Security Council and may approach the U.N. Human Rights Commission over what it says is the “genocide” of the Kashmiri people. Kashmir is claimed in its entirety by both India and Pakistan and is divided between the archrivals. Rebels have been fighting New Delhi’s rule for decades in the Indian-controlled portion, and most Kashmiri residents want either independence or a merger with Pakistan. India’s main opposition leader, Rahul Gandhi, demanded a statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the situation in Kashmir on Saturday, saying there are reports of violence and people dying. Talking to reporters in New Delhi, Gandhi said “things are going very wrong there” and called for the Indian government to make clear what is happening. — Associated Press

Today in History Today is Sunday, Aug. 11, the 223rd day of 2019. There are 142 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 11, 1992, the Mall of America, the nation’s largest shopping-entertainment center, opened in Bloomington, Minnesota. On this date: In 1919, Germany’s Weimar Constitution was signed by President Friedrich Ebert. In 1949, President Harry S. Truman nominated General Omar N. Bradley to become the first chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In 1956, abstract painter Jackson Pollock, 44, died in an automobile accident on Long Island, New York. In 1960, the African country of Chad became independent of France. In 1964, the Beatles movie “A Hard Day’s Night” had its U.S. premiere in New York. In 1965, rioting and looting that claimed 34 lives broke out in the predominantly black Watts section of Los Angeles. In 1984, at the Los Angeles Olympics, American runner Mary Decker fell after colliding with South African-born British competitor Zola Budd in the 3,000-meter final; Budd finished seventh. In 1991, Shiite Muslim kidnappers in Lebanon released two Western captives: Edward Tracy, an American held nearly five years, and Jerome Leyraud, a Frenchman who’d been abducted by a rival group three days earlier. In 1993, President Bill Clinton named Army Gen. John Shalikashvili to be the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, succeeding the retiring Gen. Colin Powell. In 1997, President Bill Clinton made the first use of the historic line-item veto, rejecting three items in spending and tax bills. (However, the U.S. Supreme Court later struck down the veto as unconstitutional.) In 2012, Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney announced his choice of Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin to be his running mate. Usain Bolt capped his perfect London Olympics by leading Jamaica to victory in a world-record 36.84 seconds in the 4x100 meters. In 2017, a federal judge ordered Charlottesville, Virginia, to allow a weekend rally of white nationalists and other extremists to take place at its originally planned location downtown. (Violence erupted at the rally, and a woman was killed when a man plowed his car into a group of counterprotesters.) Ten years ago: A Myanmar court found democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi guilty of violating her house arrest by allowing an uninvited American to visit her home; she was ordered to serve an 18-month sentence under house arrest. Jeers and taunts drowned out Democratic lawmakers calling for a health care overhaul at town halls; during his own town hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, President Barack Obama assailed “wild misrepresentations” of his health care plan. Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister of President John F. Kennedy and founder of the Special Olympics, died in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, at age 88. Five years ago: Academy Award-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams, 63, died in Tiburon, California, a suicide. One year ago: Nobel Prize-winning novelist V.S. Naipaul died at his London home at the age of 85. President Donald Trump said former White House staffer and reality-TV star Omarosa Maniguault Newman was a “lowlife”; Manigualt Newman had been promoting a book in which she said Trump is a racist who had used racial slurs on the set of “The Apprentice.” Republican U.S. Rep. Chris Collins of New York ended his re-election bid, days after his indictment on insider trading charges. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Arlene Dahl is 94. Songwriter-producer Kenny Gamble is 76. Rock musician Jim Kale (Guess Who) is 76. Magazine columnist Marilyn Vos Savant is 73. Country singer John Conlee is 73. Singer Eric Carmen is 70.

Run for Women draws 126 By Joey Klecka Peninsula Clarion

The 126 runners signed up for Saturday’s 32nd annual LeeShore Center Run for Women enjoyed not only a pleasant day for racing, but did so for a worthwhile cause. The annual late summer event is a benefit for the LeeShore Center, which has served as a 24-hour domestic violence and sexual assault shelter for Kenai and the central Peninsula since May 1977, providing a safe place for women and children to go. Two ladies emerged as first-time winners of the race. Seward’s Jenny Rutledge

won the women’s 10-kilometer race in 51 minutes, 36 seconds, beating runnerup Megan Murphy by 51 seconds. Murphy was second in 52:27 and third-place Nicole Dixon came across in 55:58. Kenai’s Samuel Anders, 11, was the overall 10K winner in 50:19, beating Rutledge to the finish line. Anders said he doesn’t run for fun just yet, but plays plenty of club soccer in Kenai to give him an edge. Plus, he has competed in the Run for Women, which allows male runners aged 17 and younger, since age 5 or 6, and has done the longer 10K event four years in a row. In the 5K race, Soldotna

runner Mallory Millay, 29, won in 25:26, beating runner-up Angela Head by 46 seconds. Head finished in 26:12 and third-place Teresa Lawless crossed the line in 26:44. Rutledge works for the Seward Parks and Recreation Department, and said she regularly helps organize community races around the Seward area. That and the LeeShore Center fundraiser convinced her to travel up to Kenai to compete. “It’s a good cause, so it kept me motivated,” Rutledge said. Rutledge said the day See RUN, Page B4

KCHS grad Johnson finds football success at Adams State By Joey Klecka Peninsula Clarion

Three years and change from walking at Kenai Central’s 2016 graduation, Conner Johnson has reinvented himself as one of Adams State University’s most dangerous players on the gridiron. The 6-foot-7, 280-pound offensive lineman, is entering his senior season at Adams State in Alamosa, Colorado, and was recently named as one of the Grizzlies’ top players to watch in a preseason coaches poll. Johnson was also named one of four team captains, putting him squarely in the spotlight as a leader on the team, and Johnson didn’t back down from the opportunity to compete for his teammates. “I was ecstatic,” Johnson said in a recent interview. “It was me and three other guys, and I think it shows how much blood, sweat and tears we’ve put into the program. “As my parents like to say, it’s a testament to how hard I worked to earn this. I’ve put myself in this

position, and I’m just excited for my last year and see what happens after it.” As a four-year starter, Johnson has certainly earned it. Primarily used as a tight end under head coach John Marquez’s tenure during his senior year at KCHS, Johnson moved to Colorado and went to work as a defensive end. But his spot on defense was short-lived. At least after his freshman year. Johnson said his coaches called him and his dorm roommate A.J. Deberard one day before his sophomore campaign to propose a change. “He said, ‘Listen, you guys are going to switch everything and run with it,’” Johnson recounted. “He said we’ll see how it goes.” Johnson and Debarard swapped positions on the field, a move that slotted Johnson into the left tackle position. “I switched lockers, jerseys, everything from that moment on,” he said. Johnson said he embraced the switch with open arms,

particularly since it meant he would play a role in helping the Grizzlies offense move the ball. It also meant he had to beef up. Johnson said as a senior at Kenai Central, he stood 6-5 and weighed in at 235 pounds. Putting on almost 50 pounds will go a long way in earning a spot on the O-line. “Coming in from back home, I was just a kid from a small school in Alaska,” he said. “I wasn’t expecting to be in this role, but now that I am, it’s absolutely insane. … I’m just trying to be that O-lineman who doesn’t care about stats. I’m doing my job to the best of my ability.” In his new role, Johnson played well. He earned all-conference second-team at left tackle and took on the leadership role that he still owns. In addition to the peaks, he’s also had his valleys. Johnson missed a significant chunk of his junior season with a foot injury. In a game against South Dakota School of Mines, Johnson said a teammate landed on his foot and

broke it, putting him on the sidelines for four weeks. It was tough, Johnson said, having to stand back and watch his team play without him, but it also taught the history and political science major a lesson in preparation, not only for himself but his younger teammates. “It was definitely hard but it just turned into a different role I had to fill,” he said. “Instead of practicing with the boys, I was preparing them for the next game. I was teaching the freshman to do my spot.” Johnson said he returned in time to take the field in the season finale against Dixie State, but not in time to help earn a second straight all-conference accolade. But in his modest fashion, Johnson said that’s not what mattered to him. “I thought, ‘Don’t dwell on that,’” he said. “Let it be something positive.” Now, with a promising final season with the Grizzlies, Johnson said he is focused on the task at hand, because his future as a

football player could very well rely on it. Johnson said he has dreamed of becoming pro, but added he can’t reach that dream if he doesn’t put in the hard work today, as he has all four years. “You’ve just got to be prepared for it,” he said. “If it doesn’t work out, I am 100% happy with how my college career went. But if I get to that bridge, I’ll cross it (then).” Johnson is one of many central peninsula players set to play college this year, including six from Soldotna (Brenner Furlong at Dakota State, Blake Riley and Levi Benner at Valley City State, Aseli Finau at Eastern New Mexico, Dylan Simons at Hancock Community College and Cody Nye at the University of Minnesota, Morris), three from Nikiski (Ian Johnson at George Fox University, Tyler Litke at Pacific University, and Lincoln Johnson, who is wrapping up graduate assistant work as the strength and conditioning coach at Greenville University) and one other from Kenai (Avery Hieber, Trinity International University).

Mahomes gets off to fast start By The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Patrick Mahomes picked up where he left off from his record-breaking debut as a starter, marching the Kansas City Chiefs downfield for a first-quarter touchdown in what became a 38-17 preseason victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night. Mahomes did a bit of everything on the only series by the Chiefs’ firstteam offense, going 4 for 4 for 66 yards while adding a 10-yard scramble and inducing an an offside penalty. Andy Dalton was nearly as sharp for Cincinnati, going 7 of 9 for 80 yards while leading his team on a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown march to open the game. Dalton did it without the services of injured wide receiver A.J. Green or his top two running backs, Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard.

49ERS 17, COWBOYS 9 SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Dak Prescott completed all four of his pass attempts, caught one and led Dallas to a field goal in a brief cameo in the exhibition

opener as the Cowboys went on to lose to San Francisco. Prescott and the bulk of the Dallas offensive starters played one series, moving the ball 65 yards in nine plays. The drive stalled when his third-down pass in the red zone was batted at the line by Sheldon Day right back to Prescott, who lost a yard on the play before Brett Maher kicked the first of his three field goals.

RAIDERS 14, RAMS 13 OAKLAND, Calif. — Nathan Peterman scrambled 50 yards to set up his only touchdown throw and Oakland beat Los Angeles in the preseason opener for both teams. Peterman entered in the third quarter and completed 9 of 12 passes for 66 yards. He also led both teams with 56 yards rushing. A starter for Buffalo in Week 1 a year ago, Peterman is competing with Mike Glennon for the backup job to Derek Carr. Glennon, attempting to latch on with his fourth team in four years, started and went 17 of 25 for 200 yards, but threw two interceptions.

Cardinals release Philon after arrest TEMPE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals have released defensive end Darius Philon, a day after Maricopa County jail records indicate he was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly instrument. The Cardinals announced the move Saturday in a onesentence statement. A Phoenix police spokeswoman, Sgt. Maggie Cox, confirmed Saturday that Philon had been arrested, but declined to provide further information, referring a reporter to court documents that were not immediately available

Saturday. According to TMZ, Philon was taken to a Maricopa County jail Friday on charges from an incident in May outside a Phoenix-area strip club. A court video of Philon’s initial court appearance posted by KPNX-TV showed that a judge set bond for Philon and imposed conditions that included allowing Philon to travel out of state for work. Phillip Noland, an attorney who represented Philon during the brief court appearance, did not immediately respond to a request by The Associated Press for comment.

Mikulak nabs 6th national gymnastics title By Will Graves AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Samuel Mikulak doesn’t show off the stash of medals he’s earned from the U.S.

Welcomes PENINSULA RADIATION ONCOLOGY CENTER

DR. JASON PARKS  Radiation Oncologist  Medical School: University of

“It is an honor for me to join this exceptional team and to have the opportunity to make an impact on local cancer patients. My wife, Hannah, and I are looking forward to being a part of this wonderful community.”

Dr. Parks’ exceptional clinical skills and passion for patient care are just a few of the reasons that he is a valuable addition to the team at Peninsula Radiation Oncology Center.

Together, we’re bringing HOPE to the Kenai Peninsula.

men’s gymnastics championships through the years. They sit in relatively anonymity in the basement of the place he shares with his girlfriend back in Colorado. It’s not that Mikulak doesn’t appreciate what he’s accomplished. It’s just that two-time Olympian’s standard of success is no longer measured by what he does on home soil. So while Mikulak pumped his fists in joy after clinching his modern era-record sixth national title on Saturday night by topping runner-up Yul Moldauer by a staggering 5.550 points, Mikulak remains equal parts perfectionist and realist. Yes, he’s the most decorated American male gymnast of his generation. He’s also aware that his generation might not be as deep as the ones that came before. “I guess it is just a weird place for the US right now,” Mikulak said. “You could probably make the argument that maybe this is the easiest time period for USA Gymnastics for a guy like me and so it doesn’t quite hold as much to it right now.” After picking up his first individual world championship medal by grabbing bronze on high bar last October, the lack of any Olympic hardware is the lone hole left on his otherwise stuffed resume. And he knows it. “I see the Russians and the

Chinese and the Japanese and all the big skills they’re throwing and I’m just trying to live up to those expectations,” Mikulak said. He remains adamant that he believes his best years are ahead of him. It certainly looks like a possibility after he captured gold in high bar, parallel bars, pommel horse and floor exercise and completed 12 routines over the course of two days without a fall. His overall total of 174.150 also created the largest winning margin of his six national championships. No wonder he’s hinting at extending his career beyond Tokyo and hasn’t ruled out competing into his 30s. Maybe by then American men will have someone ready to pick up the mantle. The program is in the midst of a generational shift. Mikulak is the lone member of the 2016 Olympic team who hasn’t retired, though alternates Akash Modi and Donnell Whittenburg are still in the mix. Mikulak lamented the lack of competition for the top spot after the opening round on Thursday, admitting he wishes there was someone nipping at his heels. For the moment, there isn’t, though the men put on a considerably better show in the finals than they did on night one. Eight of the top 10 all-around finishers put up better all-around scores Saturday, providing a bit of

momentum heading into next month’s world championship selection camp. “You’re starting to see a lot more frequent personal bests throughout the team,” men’s high performance director Brett McClure said. “The improvement is starting to be tangible.” Moldauer, who won the national title in 2017 while Mikulak was still recovering from an Achilles injury, overcame a messy high bar routine to hold on to second by drilling his floor exercise. Modi stuck his vault to finish on the podium. Whittenburg, who has been dogged by injuries for much of the last four years, finished third on still rings — his signature event — and seventh in the allaround despite being at what he described at “80%.” “I feel like this is definitely the step that I needed to finally realize that I’m back,” Whittenburg said. “I still need to stay healthy but I feel like I can finally upgrade enough to get back where I was.” Shane Wiskus made a spectacular save on high bar, blindly snatching it onehanded following a release that was a little too big. Rather than smashing onto the mat, he kept going to help propel him to a fourth-place finish. Asked if he’s ever made a save look so good, Wiskus laughed and joked he needed to get his shoulder checked out.

Reed leads by 1 with 1 round left JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Patrick Reed is finally being rewarded with good scores, and he hopes it can be enough to turn around his season. He is winless in the last 16 months dating to the 2018 Masters. He hasn’t missed the Tour Championship in five years, and started the FedEx Cup playoffs at No. 50, leaving him little room for a bad week. He is in danger of being left off a U.S. team for the first time since his rookie season in 2013. Reed put himself in

position to change his outlook Saturday with a 4-under 67, giving him a one-shot lead over Abraham Ancer of Mexico going into the final round of The Northern Trust. Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth, playing in the final group, lost ground on a blustery day at Liberty National. Johnson, twice a winner of this FedEx Cup playoffs opener, didn’t make a birdie until the 10th hole, and then saw his round fall apart with four bogeys over the last six holes for a 74.

By The Associated Press BOSTON — Mike Trout hit the first home run of his career at Fenway Park and the Los Angeles Angels snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 12-4 rout of the Boston Red Sox on Saturday. Justin Upton added a three-run homer in the first inning. With his 428-foot drive over the Green Monster in the sixth inning, Trout has now homered in every American League ballpark. He had played 21 games in Boston without connecting.

METS 4, NATIONALS 3 NEW YORK — Luis Guillorme hit his first big league homer — a tying shot leading off the eighth — J.D. Davis added a go-ahead sacrifice fly and New York beat Washington for its eighth straight victory. The Mets have won 15 of 16 and are on their best roll since a 16-1 run in 1990. They pulled within a half-game of Washington for the first NL wild card.

ASTROS 23, ORIOLES 2 BALTIMORE — Rookie Yordan Alvarez hit three of Houston’s six home runs and drove in a career-high seven runs to help the Astros to the highest scoring game in franchise history. The win was the eighth straight for the Astros, who became the latest team to feast on the reeling Orioles. Baltimore has allowed a major league-leading 240 homers and lost five straight.

GIANTS 3, PHILLIES 1 SAN FRANCISCO — Jeff Samardzija pitched eight innings of two-hit ball, Evan Longoria and Kevin Pillar homered, and San Francisco beat Philadelphia. Samardzija (9-9) gave up

one run, struck out five and walked none. He retired 20 straight after giving up a solo homer to Corey Dickerson with two outs in the top of the first inning.

BLUE JAYS 5, YANKEES 4 TORONTO — Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a go-ahead, two-run triple in the seventh inning and Toronto dealt New York its second straight loss following a season-high nine game winning streak. Gary Sanchez returned from injured list and hit a solo home run for the Yankees and Gio Urshela added a two-run drive.

ROYALS 7, TIGERS 0 DETROIT — Mike Montgomery struck out a careerhigh 12 in seven innings and Kansas City beat Detroit. Jorge Soler homered and scored twice for the Royals, who had lost six of seven.

MARLINS 7, BRAVES 6 MIAMI — Martin Prado hit a sacrifice fly that scored Harold Ramirez in the bottom of the 10th inning as Miami rallied past Atlanta. Playing in front of a seasonhigh home crowd of 29,720, the Marlins erased a 6-2 deficit by scoring four in the bottom of the ninth.

CARDINALS 3, PIRATES 1 ST. LOUIS — Adam Wainwright gave up a home run on the first pitch of the game and St. Louis held on to beat Pittsburgh. The contending Cardinals won their second in a row after ending a five-game losing streak.

BREWERS 3, RANGERS 2

MILWAUKEE — Adrian Houser struck out a careerhigh 10 and rookie Keston Hiura hit his 14th home run as Milwaukee beat Texas and extended its winning streak to five games. Houser (5-5) limited the Rangers to one run, a solo homer by Danny Santana in the sixth inning. He allowed three hits and a walk over six innings, his longest performance in nine starts this season.

REDS 10, CUBS 1 CINCINNATI — Rookie Aristides Aquino homered in his first three at-bats , keeping up his prodigious power display and leading Cincinnati over Chicago. Aquino came up twice more with a chance to match the major league record for home runs in a game. He drew a four-pitch walk with nothing close to the plate and struck out in his final at-bat.

WHITE SOX 3, ATHLETICS 2 CHICAGO — Reynaldo López pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning, Eloy Jiménez homered on his bobblehead night and Chicago beat Tanner Roark and Oakland. López (7-9) allowed six hits, struck out three and walked three in his second straight win.

DODGERS 4, DIAMONDBACKS 0 LOS ANGELES — Kenta Maeda allowed three hits over seven innings, Max Muncy homered and Los Angeles bounced back from an extra-inning loss with a

win over Arizona. Maeda (8-8) struck out six as he picked up his first victory since May 31. He also helped his cause at the plate with a pair of sacrifice bunts.

PADRES 8, ROCKIES 5 SAN DIEGO — Manuel Margot hit a go-ahead, tworun homer in the eighth inning and Hunter Renfroe had a homer among his three hits and scored four runs as San Diego beat Colorado. Wil Myers added a pinchhit homer in the eighth and rookie Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a triple to extend his hitting streak to a career-best 14 games for the Padres, who have won the first three games of this four-game series and four of five overall.

TWINS 4, INDIANS 1 MINNEAPOLIS — Max Kepler and Marwin Gonzalez homered, Jake Odorizzi earned his career-high 13th victory and Minnesota broke a tie with Cleveland atop the AL Central, beating the Indians to snap a four-game losing streak. The Indians had won the first two in the four-game series at Target Field, tying for the division lead after trailing by 11 ½ games in early June.

RAYS 5, MARINERS 4 SEATTLE — Mike Zunino hit a three-run homer, Kevin Kiermaier and Avisail Garcia also went deep and Tampa Bay beat Seattle. Tampa Bay starter Charlie Morton (12-4) gave up four runs on a season-high nine hits, and struck out 10 in six innings. Emilio Pagan pitched a perfect ninth for his 11th save.

began in a rush as she woke up late with the 9:30 a.m. registration deadline looming. Having camped out the night before, Rutledge said it was a test of nerves that was quelled when she just made it in time. “I didn’t think I was going to make registration,” she said. “Once I got there, I was able to slow down and get ready to run.” Rutledge said she tailed 10K runner-up Murphy in the early miles while she found her groove, then passed her about halfway through and pulled out a gap to win it. As a half-marathoner, Rutledge said the day was a nice warmup for next weekend’s Mineshaft Grinder event in Hope. In the 5K race, Millay was able to grab the victory thanks to some helpful pacing from her boyfriend. The Soldotna resident said it was her third time running the 5K race, following up on

finishes of fifth in 2017 and fourth in 2018. Saturday’s event was a heater, she said, but since the proceeds go to a worthy cause, there really was no excuse to miss it. “It’s a little hot, but it’s nicer than the last two years when it was chilly,” she said. “The prices are great and especially when it supports a good charity.” Austin Adlam, 17, crossed in second place overall, just six seconds behind Millay, and said he decided to expand his race experience on the advice of his girlfriend, who also ran Saturday. “I’ve run cross-country before, but never in one of these community races,” he said. “It’s really enjoyable because it’s not super competitive.” Millay started the race inconspicuously, letting a handful of other runners lead the way out before moving up through the pack. By the midway turnaround point, Millay said she had just one other runner on her tail, but she managed to put a gap

Healthy breakfast on a busy school morning? It’s not so hard By Melissa Rayworth Associated Press

Breakfast, as you may have heard, is the most important meal of the day. That’s especially true for kids returning to school, who need fuel for energy and learning. But serving a healthy breakfast can feel like one more challenge for parents trying to get themselves and their kids out the door on time. Never fear. With a bit of planning, breakfast can be a great opportunity to get dairy, fiber, fruits and even vegetables into a child’s diet. And it doesn’t have to be complicated. “It’s not like there’s one perfect breakfast,” says Jessica Jaeger, a registered dietitian at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York. Just try to include a mix of proteins, complex carbs from whole grains and healthy fats. “This helps stabilize blood sugar and appetite,” Jaeger says.

Diane Dembicki, an associate professor of nutrition who works with Jaeger at Adelphi, suggests involving kids in decision-making, and even in prep work the night before. Avoid the packaged frozen breakfast sandwiches and “breakfast bars” that have names that suggest nutrition but are often high in sugar and fat, Dembicki says. A few strategies for planning good breakfasts on school mornings:

Eggs can be easy EGGS CAN BE EASY Try make-ahead egg cups or breakfast burritos. Kirsten Clodfelter, a mom of three from Louisville, Kentucky, does meal prep on Sundays with the help of her oldest, who is 7. They scramble eggs with a variety of chopped addins (sausage with diced onion and peppers, or perhaps bacon and spinach), and then put the eggs in

a tortilla with a bit of cold cheese and wrap it in foil (for reheating in the oven the next morning) or plastic wrap (for reheating in the microwave), and freeze it. You can cut the burrito in half for little kids. Choose whole-grain tortillas or flatbread. Another make-ahead option: Fill the cups of a muffin tin with a mix of egg, veggies and meat, then bake. Once they’ve cooled, pop them out and freeze or refrigerate the individual egg cups. Then quickly microwave them at breakfast time, served with a piece of fresh fruit. For easy eggs prepared in the morning, Kate Wehr, a mother of four in Montana, suggests combining some chopped veggies and perhaps meat with a well-whisked egg and a bit of butter or olive oil in a ceramic bowl. Cover with a paper towel and microwave for about 45 seconds. The eggs will be ready to scoop into a whole wheat wrap, and breakfast is ready.

Avocado toast, banana and a glass of milk are shown on a table in the Brooklyn borough of New York. Whole grain toast with avocado is a fast but nutritious school-morning breakfast, and parents can add a hard-boiled egg for extra protein.

‘BRING LIFE’ INDOORS ‘Plant influencers’ offer decor tips for fall houseplants

variegated monstera is close behind. One of these plants might cost up to $200. Growers haven’t yet cultivated them for the mass market. “If you say a plant is rare, people will pay anything for it,” Pileggi says. The cissus discolor and a peperomia plant are among his fall picks.

ouseplants are a quick and easy way to dress your home in autumnal color. Anthuriums can add hues of pink, red or white. The philodendron’s cascading, heart-shaped green leaves bring a touch of the outdoors inside. And of course, the poinsettia’s red and green foliage is a popular choice for holiday décor. It’s no secret — houseplants are back in style. “They are naturally chaotic and provide great contrast to the structure of a room and its furnishings,” says Sarah Cole, a Boston-area interior designer. “They bring life, literally, to a room.” But with so many houseplant varieties, how’s a neophyte to choose? If you are new to the crazy, cool world of houseplants, don’t fear: Instagram is here to help. On the photo-sharing social media platform, houseplants and their owners have carved a niche under hashtags like #plantsofinstagram and #plantcommunity. Like their counterparts from the world of pop culture, “plant influencers” garner loyal followings in the hundreds of thousands. Their photos depict beautifully grown, tended and displayed houseplants — on shelves, with cats or filling an entire room. They promise to help you find the most popular, beautiful and in-demand houseplants. Some plant influencers’ suggestions for fall:

winter darkness. “Plants that bloom in the fall are always a good choice for shorter days,” Carlson says, mentioning holiday cacti and African violets as good choices. “These old-fashioned plants are making a comeback,” she said. “African violets are beautiful, and they can bloom year-round with proper light and care.” Another popular fall plant, according to Carlson, is the variegated croton. “The croton’s leaves are colorful, but they need a lot of light to keep their vibrant colors and not drop leaves,” she said. “Without special care and conditions, it can be hard to keep it healthy in most

people’s homes.” One easygoing plant that’s becoming more popular in the U.S. is the ZZ Raven. Its new growth is green like the regular ZZ variety, also known as Zanzibar gem, but the raven turns black as it matures. “Black plants can be really cool for Halloween,” Carlson said.

Eliza Blank @thesill Followers: 564,000 People pay more attention to their homes as summer turns to fall, says Blank, owner of the New York City-based houseplant boutique The Sill. “In preparation to hunker down for the winter ahead, people buy

more houseplants,” she said. “We see deeper color foliage and patterned foliage trending, along with the darker hues of planters.” Her fall picks include: the philodendron, rubber trees and the visually interesting alocasia.

Nick Pileggi @ Phillyfoliage Followers: 36,200 Variegated plant varieties are both interesting to look at and wildly popular, says Pileggi, the curator at Urban Jungle, an eclectic houseplant shop in Philadelphia. The pink princess philodendron is probably the most coveted plant right now, he says. But the

Followers: Around 5,000 This year’s fall plant, Scholte says, is the ficus elastica. “The variegated ones bring light and color in a darker period,” she says. She also recommended plants from the codiaeum family: “Their colors are so bright and are the same as the leaves from the trees outside,” she said. “And they give me a warm feeling like a blanket, especially when they’re bigger and hanging down from a shelf.”

Erin Harding and Morgan Doang @houseplantclub Followers: 611,000 If you don’t have any plants, these plant influencers say fall is the perfect time to add some green to your home. Having a tropical plant inside during the darker days can help lift your spirits. Harding and Doang think the African violet and begonia varieties will be hot this fall. “African violets seem to be gaining popularity on Instagram, probably because of the wide variety of foliage and because they flower indoors,” Doang said. As for begonias, Harding says, “there are thousands of species, making it fun to collect them all.”

Fall décor’s style song: Feel-good vibes, personality By Kim Cook Associated Press

For keen serial redecorators, it’s time to start thinking about an autumn refresh. This fall, interior designers say there’s demand for eclectic styles, interesting prints, rich hues and warm textures.

Style sense The trim, tailored lines of midcentury decor have been ensconced in the home furnishings marketplace for several years now; versions of iconic pieces can be found in all big-box retailers. Has the beloved style peaked? Some designers see an easing of the fever, but that doesn’t mean midmod is going anywhere. “It has saturated the market,”

says designer Elizabeth Stuart, of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. “(But) I think the interesting thing is that unlike the ‘industrial’ look, the midcentury ‘comeback’ has proven not to be just a fad but an awareness and a respected way of designing. Amazing furniture and fabric designers came out of that time — Florence Knoll, the Eameses, Saarinen — design that’s held its own and shown the world that it never really left.” Christiane Lemieux, who founded the home-design and fashion brand DwellStudio and now runs the custom furniture retailer The Inside, sees change coming. “Interiors have been clean, midcentury-inspired and fairly generic for the past few years, (but now) people are craving the ‘new and more.’ Enter maximalism,

specifically through the lens of British design, which is experiencing a major revitalization,” she says. Elaborate patterns, ornamentation, and luxe materials are hallmarks of that style. Designers like Miles Redd and Ken Fulk are known for their max-y, layered, curated interiors. “The beautiful thing about maximalism is that it’s entirely personal,” says Lemieux. “You’re encouraged to choose pieces that visually express your individuality. My No. 1 maximalism tip: Strive for personalization over perfection, and you can’t go wrong. The more you mix, the better the result.” She has introduced a chintz fabric collection at The Inside. And at August Abode, there’s a Notting See style, Page C2

As mortgage rates drop, the trick is finding a house By ALlex Veiga Associated Press

Wall Street’s anxiety over the Trump administration’s trade war with China could herald lower mortgage rates for homebuyers, but a chronic shortage of houses for sale will keep prices high. Investors fearful that the trade war could sharply slow global economic growth have been buying bonds, sending the yield on the 10-year Treasury note to its lowest level since October 2016. The average rate on the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, which tracks the trajectory in 10-year Treasurys, fell this week to 3.60%, its lowest level since November 2016, according to Freddie Mac. It was 3.75% last week. A year ago the rate stood at 4.59%. If the slide in bond yields continues, the average rate on the benchmark 30-year home loan could fall below 3.5%, housing economists say. Lower mortgage rates give homebuyers more purchasing power, which could entice them to go house-hunting. But with the supply of homes for sale down 15% since December,

sales are lagging last year’s pace. The supply shortage is likely to limit any surge in sales. “Demand can pick up, but if the supply does not pick up it just means prices will be accelerating higher,” said Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors. “Supply has been a major bottleneck.” Also, homebuyers may not be immune to Wall Street’s jitters about a slowing economy, which could make them feel uneasy about buying a home. “Given that a home is a major expenditure, people need to be confident about economic prospects over the long haul,” Yun added. Investors have sought out safety in U.S. government bonds this week as the trade dispute between Washington and Beijing escalated again. President Donald Trump announced a new 10% tariff set to go into effect next month on Chinese imports that haven’t already been hit with prior tariffs. China retaliated by allowing its currency, the yuan, to weaken against the U.S. dollar. On Wednesday, the yield on the 10-year Treasury touched its

lowest level in nearly three years, falling as low as 1.60% from 1.74% late Tuesday, before climbing back to 1.72%. It was above 3% in late November. The spread between the 10-year Treasury yield and the average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has historically been about 1.7 percentage points, said Odeta Kushi, deputy chief economist at First American Financial. That means, if the bond yield for 10-year Treasurys drops back to 1.60%, the average rate on a 30-year mortgage could drop as low as 3.3%, though 3.54% is more likely, she said. At bond yields’ current levels, Yun expects the average rate on the 30-year fixed rate mortgage to drop to around 3.4% or even 3.3%. Such low rates could spur a pickup in home loan refinancing. The last time average weekly longterm mortgage rates were below 3.5% was three years ago. The scarce supply of homes on the market has kept prices rising this year. The median sales price of a previously occupied U.S. home climbed 4.3% in June from a year earlier to $285,700. By comparison, wage growth has averaged

Rows rows of homes are show in suburban Salt Lake City. Heightened investor jitters about slowing global economic growth and the escalating trade war between the U.S. and China have driven bond prices higher, sending the yield on the 10-year Treasury note to the lowest level since October 2016.

about 3%. The trend has held back home sales, which were down 2.2% over the 12 months that ended in June. Sales of newly built homes jumped 7% in June, but through the first half of the year have only risen 2.2% from a year earlier, despite such positive trends as a robust job market and falling mortgage rates. Lower rates may prove irresistible for would-be homebuyers,

especially those struggling to keep up with rising home prices. The price for a previously occupied U.S. home climbed 4.3% in June from a year earlier, according to NAR. “It certainly will help to make housing more affordable, obviously, as mortgage rates come down,” Kushi said. “The issue will be will folks have something to buy?”

EPA won’t approve warning labels for Roundup chemical By Adam Beam Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— The Trump administration says it won’t approve warning labels for products that contain glyphosate, a move aimed at California as it fights one of the world’s largest agriculture companies about the potentially cancer-causing chemical. California requires warning labels on glyphosate products — widely known as the weed

nut butter, sliced bananas or other fresh fruit on top, and perhaps a drizzle of honey. Use natural peanut butter or another natural spread, rather than a brand that’s high in sugar. “I found that starting my kids early with natural peanut butter meant they really didn’t ask for the sweeter stuff,” says Sarah Shemkus, of Gloucester, Massachusetts.

killer Roundup — because the International Agency for Research on Cancer has said it is “probably carcinogenic.” The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency disagrees, saying its research shows the chemical poses no risks to public health. California has not enforced the warning label for glyphosate because Monsanto, the company that makes Roundup, sued and a federal judge temporarily blocked the warning labels last year until the

lawsuit could be resolved. “It is irresponsible to require labels on products that are inaccurate when EPA knows the product does not pose a cancer risk,” EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said in a statement. “We will not allow California’s flawed program to dictate federal policy.” California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, approved by voters in 1986, requires the government to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, as determined

by a variety of outside groups that include the EPA and IARC. The law also requires companies to warn customers about those chemicals. California regulators have twice concluded glyphosate did not pose a cancer risk for drinking water. But in 2015, the IARC classified the chemical as “probably carcinogenic,” triggering a warning label under California law. Federal law regulates how pesticides are used and how they

are labeled. States can impose their own requirements, but they can’t be weaker than the federal law, according to Brett Hartl, government affairs director for the Center for Biological Diversity. Hartl said it is unusual for the EPA to tell a state it can’t go beyond the federal requirements. “It’s a little bit sad the EPA is the biggest cheerleader and defender of glyphosate,” Hartl said. “It’s the Environmental Protection Agency, not the pesticide protection agency.”

This breakfast hits the macronutrient goals of protein, whole grain and healthy fats, and the fruit adds vitamins. A hard-boiled egg made the night before can provide extra protein. Dembicki also recommends avocado, which has healthy monounsaturated fat and is high in vitamins. Consider a quick avocado toast on whole-grain bread, served with a hard-boiled egg and piece of fruit. Another whole-grain option: overnight oats made in a Mason jar, or oatmeal set up the night before

in a slow-cooker. Let kids choose their ingredients, including fruits and nuts. By flavoring the oatmeal yourself rather than buying preflavored, the sugar is kept low. Shemkus sometimes cooks quick oats in a bowl in her microwave with grated carrot and raisins, then tops it with maple syrup, cinnamon and milk: “We call it ‘carrot cake oat bowl,’ and the 3-year-old loves it.”

breakfast, try Greek yogurt with flaxseed, granola and fresh fruit mixed in, and perhaps a bit of honey. Hard-boiled eggs also go well with this. Some families pack an entire breakfast into a blender to create smoothies. Fresh fruit, yogurt or milk, peanut butter and even greens can go in. Clodfelter got her kids to embrace spinach in smoothies by adding it to a berry blend and calling them “Christmas smoothies,” since the green flecks of spinach were combined with red berries.

Or bake healthy muffins in advance. Search for recipes with plenty of fruit or nuts and whole grains. Make a large batch and freeze them. Veggies can be hidden in many muffin recipes, and are front-and-center in recipes like carrot-raisin muffins. And don’t forget dinner for breakfast: Not every kid likes typical American “breakfast foods,” and that’s fine, Dembicki says. If they have favorite dinner meals, make extra and pack leftovers in small containers for easy reheating the next morning.

Day and Sherwin-Williams’ Repose Gray. “Adding layers of darker, moodier colors on top of this new gray leads to a sophisticated and almost sexy feel for fall,” he says. Benjamin Moore color and design expert Hannah Yeo notes another chic combo: “From pale buttermilk to rich gold, yellows are making a strong visual statement. Soft yellow mixes well with gray and warms up wood tones.” And Los Angeles designer Breegan Jane’s favors colors that “appeal to the emotions.” “I see fall’s color trends moving toward darker, deeper hues like dark teal, maroon, plum,” she says. “These colors create a relaxed atmosphere that contrasts the bright, electric tones of spring and summer.” PPG’s color of the year is Chinese Porcelain, a dusky navy. Fashion’s fall

collections from Armani, Philip Lim, Christian Siriano and others featured the hue in variations ranging from quiet grayed blues to vibrant cobalts. Navy is a perennial favorite, but McClain suggests trying peacock, deep teal or juniper. “These warmer, greener blues are just as versatile, conjuring feelings of a relaxing snuggle by the fire on a fall evening,” he says. And Joan Craig, of the New York architectural and interiors firm Craig & Company, says bold hues are finding their way into the kitchen, too. “Many of our clients are interested in the black stainless finishes, which are handsome and fingerprint-resistant,” she says. “The trend for color in appliances is staying strong. What’s not to love about a burgundy, deep blue or brilliant green La Cornue range?”

Brass notes Complementing all the rich blues, teals, berries and greens are the metals, and designers say mixing them up is the way to go now. “Mixed metals definitely infuse an eclectic balance this fall,” says Jane. Rose gold may be on the wane, but brass and gold accents are trending, as is matte black. Silvery nickel and steel are always in. The mix isn’t solely about material or color; it’s also about finish. Matte, polished, antiqued and brushed give home decorators many options to provide interest and depth. How do you decide which to use? McClain’s trick: repetition.

“Create a rhythm through themes,” he says. “For example, appliances and plumbing fixtures are stainless steel, cabinet hardware and light fixtures are brushed brass, and all door, hardware and window frames are matte black. Then punctuate your metal mixtures with picture frames, lamps and accessories.” GE Café’s new appliance suite lets you customize knobs and handles, for example. “One of my clients opted for copper accents on her stainless appliances for fall, and plans to change again for spring,” McClain says.

Surfaces with personality “Wallpaper is having its day,” says Craig, citing papers with natural textures, customizable hand painting and small-scale prints. “Beyond rooms, we’re lining ceilings, cabinet interiors and bookcases,” she says. Terrazzo has found a home in many designers’ hearts. “It’s been around for 10,000 years and it still looks modern,” says Craig. “There are so many variations, and we love the design impact it gives a space.” She’s mixing cream, buff and gray-blue stones in an off-white matrix for one project, while in another the team’s combining charcoal, gold and cream with bronze. “Besides being beautiful, epoxy terrazzo is lightweight and easy to maintain,” she says. You’ll even find terrazzo as a pattern on fabrics, kitchenware and tabletop accessories.

How the dynamic duos of mutts came to be

I

was roaming Bishop’s Beach the other day jawing with a visiting veteran friend when the subject of my dogs came up. He wanted to know why we adopted another pooch a few years ago when our eccentric mutt, Howard, had been such a handful since his puppy days. I told him that it all started when I inadvertently came home one afternoon with some blond hairs on my jacket and pants. Initially, all I got was a quizzical gaze. A couple of days later, I overlooked some small scratches

Unhinged alaska Nick Varney until it was too late and a devious wound snuffle produced a suspicious stare. The final straw broke when I waltzed in with a profound

scent emanating from my duds. Howard took an interrogational whiff and proceeded to pitch such a snit that he would have thrown a shoe, if he had hooves. It was then, and only then, that I was forced to admit that I had been seeing other dogs. I was a bit stymied by his outburst because I couldn’t understand why Howard-the Hairy, who has an I.Q. two points lower that his chew toy, was jealous. All I had done was innocently volunteer to help out during the animal shelter’s walk- a-dog

program that a friend had told me about. It never entered my thick skull that I’d end up triggering a domestic canine dust up just by trying to do a good deed. The shelter had certain hours where volunteers could take homeless hounds out for exercise and my pal suggested that it might give me a chance to find out what it would be like to be around a real dog. He always thought Howard should be in a zoo and there were times I would agree with him but overall, H.H. has always been a keeper. Note: I met my bud’s dog once

and must admit that it had one up on Howard because I could easily guess which end was its butt was on when it was stationary. Week’s past and H. finally chilled out about the dog walking and grudging accepted my infidelity. So, naturally, I assumed everything had returned to what we considered normal until he had another brain fart. I had just settled in for an afternoon power nap when a moose wandered into the front yard. I See varney, Page C4

didn’t notice it, but the hairball did. He quickly surmised that he couldn’t get a good enough view from the door window, so he scrambled over Jane’s easy chair and launched himself onto the couch where he planted his back paws, reared, and let out a yowl that rocked leaves on one of our large house plants. Not cool, especially because, I was his blast-off pad. I could have forgiven the one claw that landed directly over a

perfect pressure point for CPR sternum compressions, but the other hit where temporary high sopranos are born. His sudden erratic behavior started me thinking that maybe Howard was in need of an in-house companion to keep him otherwise occupied before he started notifying us about everything that caught his eye including meandering gnats. The visit to the shelter in search of a back-up support dog turned out to be a more complicated affair than I had anticipated. My first walk-a-mutt was Mitch. Nice dog, but a bit weird. The hound had “separation anxiety”

issues. I was told that if you left him alone for over a couple of hours, he would attempt to devour the contents of the house. Fortunately, the owner finally reclaimed him when she was able to replace her furniture with designer rocks. Mega Mutt Two, was Buddy. He was a creature that one might politely describe as “eager and hefty” and seemed more than able to pull eighteen wheelers out of mud slides. Howard, on the other hand, was just as big but was so lazy, that he had to take a nap after scratching himself. Those two would have never hit it off. Next up was a cuddle freak called Marshmallow. What a sweetheart.

The lady had beautiful blue eyes, soft white hair and was as quiet as a bunny’s snore. Her only problem was that she shed like a Musk Ox in the Sahara and the job of keeping our cabin fur laden was already taken. Just as I was about to give up, the shelter called and said that they might have the perfect companion for Howard-the-Hairy. It was a breeder female toy poodle rescued from a puppy mill and a bit of a lost soul. She could no longer produce and had been facing a dismal future before being saved. I drove in, took one look at the loneliness and love in her eyes and the search was over.

We named her Little Bear and she and Howard became inseparable until she passed from cancer and another rescue mini poodle (Princess) was brought home to heal his broken heart. The only thing my brother veteran said after hearing the story behind the story was, “How did you end up with Howard in the first place?” “I found him abandoned and wandering along the Dalton Highway.” I answered. “Maybe that’s why he bonded so quickly with the little critters. They had so much in common.” Nick can be reached at ncvarney@gmail.com.

What do helpers do?

Mini Idea:

Be a Social Helper

Students who are social helpers are usually also leaders in the classroom. We call these kids role models. How can you be a leader in your class? • Volunteer for a class job. Many teachers choose students to do regular chores in the classroom. Tell your teacher you’d like to have a job. • Offer to help others. Are you really good at math or art? Talk with your teacher about helping other students with subjects that you love. • Follow the rules when you’re playing a game, and be kind to those who don’t play as well as you. • Know when to say you’re sorry. If you’ve made a mistake, be willing to apologize and do what’s needed to make it right. • Be positive. Give a compliment to someone. Smile. Share a joke.

Think about how good it feels for you to receive a smile or a compliment. You can make someone else feel that good! photo by Guian Bolisay/flickr

Are you wondering what school might be like this year? Many kids get a little anxious about the new year beginning. While it probably won’t take long for you to feel at home, we wanted to pass on some ideas that might help.

In the lunchroom

What does ‘social’ mean?

When we say someone is social (SO-shul), we mean that he or she gets along with others. They make the right choices. They respond to others’ needs. They are good companions, friends and members of the school community. Sometimes, kids might feel that they don’t fit in or that they don’t belong. We all have “social problems” at one time or another.

Be a social helper

That’s where a social helper might step in. These students are aware of the clues when a classmate is in need of a friend, a smile, a pat on the back or a compliment. By being sensitive to the feelings of others and doing something that helps, kids get a good feeling themselves. True, kids can’t solve all problems, but they can help. It’s the job of teachers, principals and counselors to help, too. Kids who are sensitive to others’ feelings also have these traits: • Responsibility • Hard work • Self-discipline • Loyalty

• Caring • Honesty • Trust • Respect

Clue: A girl is sitting at a lunch table. Nobody is sitting on either side of her. She feels very alone. Suggestion for social helpers: Go and sit in one of the vacant seats next to her. Talk about something you think she might be interested in. Enjoy lunchtime together.

On a school bus

Clue: One kid is teasing another kid, who is getting upset at being picked on. Suggestion for social helpers: Ask the kid being teased to come and sit by you so she can move away from the teaser.

On the playground

Issue 32, 2019

What happened in Pompeii?

More ideas?

Clue: A boy is walking around the edge of the playground by himself. He is not taking part in any games. Suggestion for social helpers: Walk up to the kid with a smile on your face and ask him to join in your group.

What other ideas do you have about being a social helper? Share your thoughts with your classmates or your family.

By reaching out to kids you don’t know, you may make new friends.

Eco Note All living things play a particular role in their environment. This is called a niche (neesh). However, only one species can fill a niche in any habitat — if there were two, they would compete for the same food. For instance, anteaters occupy a certain niche in South America — they eat ants and termites. In places where there are no anteaters, other animals fill this niche.

Adapted from “The Robin Takes 5 Cookbook for Busy Families” with permission from Andrews McMeel Publishing (andrewsmcmeel.com).

Jaqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 11, 2019: This year, you might seem more sensible and conservative than you are or have been. From this point of view, life looks quite different. If single, you could choose to be with someone who suits you well this year but probably won’t for the long term. Do not commit unless you are sure. If attached, the two of you might find that you need to readapt to each other in certain ways. Both of you have changed. This process could charge your relationship with excitement. CAPRICORN always gives sound advice. Do not feel as if you must listen to it. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH News from a distance may charge your day with excitement. Many of you will choose to spend some extra time with a child or loved one. He or she might be full of flack, but enjoy it. Tonight: A long-overdue discussion.

HHH Tension might be a little too high for your taste, but know you can deal with it. A family member really wants you to spend some time at home with him or her. Do not say no. Tonight: Make it cozy.

HHH You are eliminating some preordained concepts and at the same time accepting more responsibility. Keep a firm hold on your finances. You could have unexpected expenses. A child or loved one plays a significant role in your day. Tonight: Check in on an older relative.

HHHHH You might want to say what is on your mind. If you address this directly, you could see the other party flip. Opt to initiate this chat at another time or choose to be more diplomatic. Tonight: Get into a movie.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Be willing to let go of your need for control, and you could be delighted by what comes down the path. Associates, loved ones and friends might surprise you but are accommodating. Tonight: A potential loved one or your sweetie has decided to indulge you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your emotional frequency could be high and draws in a special person if you are single and a loved one if you are attached. A friend could do what you least expected! Go along with the moment. Tonight: Be responsive to a request.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Adapt your plans in order to have more free time at home. You could be tired from the weekend, or you just want or crave a lazy day. You do not need to overthink this decision -- just do it. Your smile late in the day

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You could want to change directions, though you feel somehow committed. Ask yourself if you can break this scenario or not. It might be better to tolerate the matter for a while. Finances are likely to change in the near future. Tonight: Fun does not need to cost.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You gain no matter what direction you decide to go. You certainly have a lot on your plate, but you also offer a lot. A child or new friend might become unpredictable. Tonight: Go with another person’s suggestion.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You might need to pull back in order to get a complete idea of what might be going on with a particular person. Make this a lazy day, read the paper or take a nap or two. Tonight: Look at what a few hours off can do!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Do not lose sight of a major objective. You could be distracted by the unexpected, pondering what someone really meant to say. You will never know unless you ask! Tonight: Follow a friend’s suggestion.

entered our home without asking. It was almost sneaky the way they did it, and when I talked to my husband about it, he was upset as well and took his anger out on me. It ruined our day traveling. We didn’t speak the entire two-hour trip back home. I asked my mother-in-law via text to please let us know when she was entering the house due to privacy and that I was not trying to hurt her feelings. She’s now upset with me and says she doesn’t know when she will visit us again. I am tired of being the second fiddle to her. Am I overreacting? It seems I can’t win with this! — KEYED UP IN ALABAMA DEAR KEYED UP: This is not a matter of playing second fiddle or any other instrument.

DEAR ABBY: My motherin-law has a key to my house. I didn’t give it to her. We left a key under the mat one day so she could get in to pick up something because I wasn’t going to be home when she arrived. I asked my husband to get the key back, but he is uncomfortable asking. She and my father-in-law have been in our house twice more in our absence.

jeanne phillips Dear Abby

have wanted to change my last name, but I’m afraid to make the leap. I have a half-brother on my mother’s side with whom I share my stepfather’s last name. Many times I wanted to ask for his permission/blessing, but I’m worried he will get angry and never speak to me again. I know he will think I am abandoning him if I do this. Am I selfish for wanting this name change, or should I seek to set the record straight?

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

DEAR ABBY: For most of my life I searched for my biological father. My mother had many relationships throughout her life, and I was the result of a one-night stand. I have a halfbrother who is the result of another failed relationship. My mother finally married a man who raised us as his own and gave us his last name. However, Mom wouldn’t tell me or my brother who our real fathers were. Over the years I questioned my mother about him, but she would give only sketchy details and sent me down many deadend trails. After she became terminally ill, I continued asking her for the truth, but she wouldn’t budge. My guess is she was ashamed of her past and couldn’t bear to tell me, or was afraid my real dad would take
