Guardsman charged with murder of seaman ANCHORAGE — A Coast Guardsman is charged with murder in the January death of a 19-year-old seaman who was found unresponsive along the shore of an Alaska island, Coast Guard officials said Thursday. Ethan Tucker was charged Wednesday with seven violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Charges include murder and involuntary manslaughter in the death of Ethan Kelch, of Virginia Beach, Virginia. The charging document says Tucker showed a wanton disregard for human life when he caused blunt force trauma to Kelch’s head and placed him in water, leaving him there. “Since our shipmate’s untimely passing, we have been in contact with his family to provide as much support as possible throughout this tragic and difficult time,” Lt. Cmdr. Stephen Brickey said in a statement. “The charges today are the result of the Coast Guard’s steadfast desire to gather all the facts and seek justice.” Tucker, of Ludington, Michigan, is in custody in San Diego as he faces court martial proceedings. It’s unclear if the 19-yearold man has an attorney. He will be provided an attorney if he wants one, according to Coast Guard Senior Petty Officer NyxoLyno Cangemi. Kelch was found unresponsive Jan. 27 along the shore of an island when the Coast Guard cutter, the Kodiakbased Munro, was docked in nearby Dutch Harbor for repairs. Responders performed CPR, but Kelch was pronounced dead at a clinic. A search had been launched for Kelch when he failed to return Jan. 26 from liberty hours. The charges say Tucker lied when he said he injured his hand by punching a steel bulkhead after learning of Kelch’s death. After a probe was launched, Tucker was transferred to the Coast Guard base in Alameda, California, in June, according to Cangemi. He was assigned to the security division with such duties as checking IDs of base visitors, making rounds with security and maintaining records and logs, Cangemi said. — Associated Press

On the line with firefighters battling the Swan Lake blaze By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

A day in the life of a wildland firefighter is anything but easy. With hundreds of firefighters currently working to contain the Swan Lake Fire, however, it can be easy to forget that each one has a different background and a different story to tell. The Clarion had the opportunity on Friday to visit several active areas of the Swan Lake Fire and get to know the people underneath the Nomex and the hardhats. The Swan Lake Fire has been burning on the Kenai Peninsula since June 5, and right now 751 personnel are scattered around its perimeter. In some areas, fire crews are actively suppressing flames with hoses and aerial water drops. In others, they are clearing burned trees and spraying down ash pits in order to prevent any future flare-ups. In order to quickly access the areas that need fire suppression, spike camps have been set up at Otter Creek and Quartz Creek. These camps are where many of the firefighters sleep

and eat when they are not directly on the line and act as a staging point for each day’s operations. At the Otter Creek spike camp — located about 5 miles north of Sterling — each morning starts with breakfast and coffee at 6 a.m. followed by a 7 a.m. morning briefing, when crews are given general updates before breaking out into their individual divisions to discuss the day’s assignments and priorities. Cheveyo Munk is a firefighter from Northern California, and for the Swan Lake Fire he is the current division supervisor for Division Echo, which consists mostly of the Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area south of the Sterling Highway. Munk was in Alaska about six weeks ago and was part of the contingency group in place south of the highway — before the fire jumped the highway due to a weekend of heavy winds. Now Munk and his team are focused on structure protection for the campgrounds and public use cabins in the area. See faces, Page A2

Hunters advised to be aware of fire conditions By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

Hunters on the Kenai Peninsula should avoid active wildfires, Alaska Department of Fish and Game said in a Thursday press release. Hunting season is already open, and more openings are scheduled soon for the Kenai Peninsula. Two active fires — the Swan Lake Fire and the Caribou Lake Fire — may impact

hunting areas in Unit 15A and Unit 15C. Alaska Department of Fish and Game has not issued an emergency order, closing hunting opportunities in the area, but hunters in the Swan Lake Fire area should note local land closures from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service.

Rains arrive to help firefighting efforts By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Light rains beginning Friday night and continuing into the weekend offered much-needed relief for the firefighters battling the Swan Lake Fire. A low-pressure weather storm system arrived over the area late Friday afternoon and some areas of the fire received about 1/4-inch of rain on Friday night, according to the latest update from the Great Basin Incident Management Team. Intermittent light rain and cooler temperatures are expected Saturday with rainfall and wind conditions intensifying on Sunday. Saturday’s operations were largely a continuation of Friday’s activities. Cooler, moister conditions though the weekend are expected to reduce fire activity and boost progress. Travel delays are to be expected

Assembly looks to establish Kalifornsky Advisory Planning Commission By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will decide Tuesday if an advisory planning commission will be established for the Kalifornsky area. Advisor y planning commissions are established to provide an additional way for community members to participate in land use planning activities. The commissions help advise the borough on borough-owned lands.

The borough has four active advisory planning commissions — in Moose Pass, Cooper Landing, Anchor Point and Hope. There are also two inactive advisory planning commissions, one in Funny River and one in Diamond Ridge. The borough owns approximately 5,800 acres within the proposed boundaries of the Kalifornsky Advisory Planning Commission and the borough land management officer has indicated that additional community input is needed

for the effective management of these lands, a July 25 memo to the assembly from borough planner, Bruce Wall, said. The idea of forming the commission came from area resident, Robin Davis, who petitioned the borough in March after he and his neighbors decided to oppose a borough land sale in his neighborhood. “Many of the neighbors in my neighborhood were taken by surprise by See ASSEMBLY, Page A3

along the Sterling Highway between Sterling and the Seward Highway junction. Fire has weakened trees along the roadway, and increased winds present an imminent hazard. Both lanes are open with pilot car operations in place, and the Kenai Peninsula Borough said that increased traffic is likely over Labor Day weekend. The rain is expected to reduce the burn potential for some lighter fuels and limit rapid surface spread. Larger fuels will likely not be dramatically affected, and on Friday night personnel observed at least one tree burning in the rain. The Swan Lake Fire is currently at 162,179 acres in size and is staffed by 751 personnel. Around Cooper Landing, moderate fire activity was observed Friday morning, but that activity See rains, Page A2

Service board elections could be changed to appointments By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

An ordinance changing service board elections to appointments will be introduced at Tuesday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting. The borough has 12 service boards, of which seven boards include elected positions. Historically, it has been difficult to find qualified candidates willing to run for service board seats, an Aug. 22 memo to the assembly from assembly members Willy Dunne and Brent Hibbert said.

“The borough is one of the few boroughs, if not the only, in the State of Alaska with elected service area boards,” the memo said. Earlier this summer, the Election Stakeholders Group — a group established by the assembly to research ways to increase voter participation — published their final report and recommendations. One of their six specific recommendations asks the borough to appoint service board members, rather than hold elections. “Appointed boards have See board, Page A3

When asked what it was like to live and work from a tent in the spike camp, Munk didn’t have any complaints. “Oh it’s great. This is my office — the outdoors. I love it,” Munk said. “We got hot coffee and plenty of food. We’re living good.” Munk said that he is thankful for the support that he and his team have received from the community and is glad to do is part. “I’m just happy to be out here helping out and being part of the solution,” Munk said. Not all the firefighters are from the Lower 48. Victor Williams, for example, makes his home in Ruby, Alaska. Williams said that he spends most of his time doing construction work, but he quickly answered the call when they asked him to join the fight. “They needed firefighters, so here I am,” Williams said. When asked what it was like at the spike camp, Williams was more candid than most. “ … cold,” Williams said. Williams added that Friday morning was the warmest it had been at the camp since he arrived. Williams and the other firefighters are on the clock for 16 hours at a time, with about 12 to 14 of those hours spent directly on the line. Williams said that they pretty much go right to bed after a day out on the line. “You can’t complain about it — it ain’t gonna help or make it go by any faster,” Williams said. “I just came out here to do what I get paid for.” Glen Kameroff is also an Alaska firefighter and is the crew boss for the Upper Kalskag crew. Kameroff said that he and his crew have been working along Skilak Lake Road finding hot spots and clearing trees that need to be knocked down. For Kameroff, the safety of his crew is always his No. 1 priority. “A lot of the trees, the roots have

been burnt out so it’s pretty hazardous for the crews, but I keep a sharp eye on them,” Kameroff said. “Any time the winds pick up, I pull my crew out of the area. I don’t want anything falling on them.” Friday was the sixth day on the line for Kameroff’s crew. Kameroff said that the biggest challenge has been waiting for new supplies to arrive. Specifically, Kameroff and his crew have been waiting four days for replacement chainsaw parts. “The chains, they wear out pretty fast,” Kameroff said. “We’re constantly sharpening them and the chain stretches, so it comes to the point where you just have to leave a saw and continue on with what we have.” During Friday morning’s briefing at the spike camp, management personnel including Incident Commander Marty Adell underscored the importance of safety on the line. There have been several medical incidents over the last week, including one firefighter losing the tip of their finger and a paramedic having an allergic reaction to bees. EMT Fontella Webster said that the heavy smoke conditions for the last week have made it impossible for aerial medical evacuations, which presents a challenge for herself and the other medical responders. Fontella is from Ronan, Montana, and is in her first year as an EMT. “I’m more used to working directly on the line back home,” Webster said. Webster and one paramedic are currently the only medical crew monitoring the western side of the fire, so they have a wide area and a large number of people to keep an eye on. In cases where aerial evacuation is not possible, Webster and her coworker have to hike to the location with all of their trauma gear loaded on their backs. Down on the containment line that makes up the southwestern perimeter of the fire, Division Charlie Supervisor Kip Shields explained what his crews were doing to extend issue-oriented, nonpartisan organization working to inform voters.

Brushing operations

The Kenai Peninsula roads department will have contractors performing routine brushing operations on or about Sept. 15. The goal of the brushing is to increase motorist ability to see pedestrians and animals on the sides of the roads, ensure signage remains unobstructed, and provide ample storage for snow/ice during winter maintenance operations. Thank

and reinforce the dozer line already in place. Shields is a fire specialist from Fairbanks and spent the last 15 years as a smoke jumper. Miles of hose run along the dozer line with a junction every 50 feet or so that allow firefighters to quickly hook up and start spraying down any areas of activity. The line branches off from Skilak Lake Road and extends several miles down to Skilak Lake. Shields and his crews have been working to extend the dozer line an additional hundred feet by cutting down trees and mopping up hot spots. One of the biggest challenges when it comes to mopping up an area in this part of Alaska is that the layers of duff — organic material that is susceptible to burning — can be up to 16 inches deep. This means that duff can smolder far under the surface, and it is also why many areas of the fire have seen renewed activity in alreadyburned areas. Sight, smell and feel are all used when crews look for hot spots.

around the peninsula you for your patience and please use caution where brushing is underway.

Shields said that sometimes the right sunlight will make it easier to pick out small patches of smoke on the ground, and drones equipped with infrared cameras also help. Down in Cooper Landing, Friday afternoon offered much clearer skies than the residents had experienced over the last week. Crews are working all around the community to create contingency lines that weave together roads, dozer lines and trails in a network of fuel breaks that are meant to prevent any flames from spreading quickly throughout the town. While some crews spent the day clearing trees along the sides of roads and sending them through the wood chipper, others have been meeting with Cooper Landing residents to clear trees and set up hoses and sprinkler systems around their properties. Michael Link lives in Anchorage but owns a home in Cooper Landing that he intends to make his permanent residence. Link has spent the last week in Cooper

Landing preparing his home for the worst. “I came down for what I thought would be a two-day trip and just never left,” Link said. Link said he didn’t have to do too much to prepare his property, because last year the State of Alaska did a FireWise assessment on his home and told him what needed to be done. Link had already cleared most of the fuels that were in close proximity to his house, so all the firefighters had to do was bring in the hoses and sprinkler systems and set up a 1500-gallon water tank to service his property and his three neighbors’ homes. Link said he was confident about the structure protection in place and complimented the firefighters for being polite, informative and helpful. “It’s so unlikely that it’ll sweep down here what with the nights getting longer and the rains coming,” Link said. “But in the event that it does I think we’ll be OK.”

Martinson Pele Kaniho, Sr. October 19, 1946 - July 20, 2019

Sterling resident Martinson Pele Kaniho, Sr., 72, entered into eternal life with his Lord and Savior Jesus, on July 20, 2019 at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage. Memorial services will be 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Sterling Community Center. A potluck will follow. Please bring your favorite dish and enjoy some fellowship. Burial will be 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9, at Soldotna Community

Memorial Park. Martin was born in Kohala, Hawaii on Oct. 19, 1946, to proud parents William and Mary Kaniho. He was the 7th son and youngest of 10 children. Growing up on the Big Island, many childhood hours were spent on the slopes of Mauna Kea or on the beaches. Favorite days spent playing hooky to follow his dad by horseback many miles up the mountain to Humuula station to work cattle on the Parker Ranch, or days spent with classmates on the beach surfing and diving for lobster. A special memory was taking John Wayne wild boar hunting by horseback up Mauna Kea. After graduating Honokaa High School in 1964, he spent a couple of years studying drafting at Sacramento State on the mainland. While there, he did long-haul trucking along the West Coast for a time. Family dynamics took him back to the Big Island, where he began heavy equipment operating during the hotel construction boom of the 70s along the Kohala-Waikoloa Coast. Digging ditches, he learned from the ground up, he could operate all equipment up to the 2nd largest crane ever made. His adventurous nature and work prospects took him to Anchorage in 1975. Various jobs included truck driving, operating equipment on new development sites, snow removal at Anchorage International Airport, even walking a picket line. He worked along the Yukon River and on the Aleutian chain, with stints at both Adak Island and Shemya Air Force Base. Martin had met Sharon Chamberlin, a ‘hauli’ girl from Alaska, while in Hawaii in 1975. They married Jan. 7, 1978 in Waimea. After several moths of caregiving his elderly dad, they both returned to Anchorage. Martin was dispatched through a local union hall, beginning a long career with Alaska Teamsters 959, most of which was spent in the North Slope Oilfields. Working up through the ranks, he was General Foreman the last several years of his career with up to 450 people under his leadership. He was a strong advocate for jobsite safety and training, and for doing your best. A tough but fair boss who believed in second chances, he gained respect of many in the oilfield construction industry. His love for Alaska compelled him to build a home on the Kenai Peninsula, enjoying seasons of salmon fishing and horseback packing trips up Resurrection Trail for moose hunting in the Swan Lake area. He was an original volunteer when the Sterling Senior Center formed in the late 1980s. He mentored boys as a Royal Ranger leader, served on the Church Board, and helped with the children’s group at Sterling Abundant Life Assembly of God. Soon after retirement in Dec. 2012, he faced a long recovery from open-heart surgery. Though he had accepted salvation through Jesus in 1985, these added years helped him develop a deeper relationship with the Lord. Retirement years included volunteering at Sterling Community Center, at the Sterling Senior Center, being a Trustee on the Board of Directors, where he helped start a men’s bible study there. Though health issues increased, he maintained a cheerful outlook and quick wit, developing relationships with many in the Soldotna and Anchorage areas. People were drawn to his easy outgoing personality. Martin was preceded in death by his parents, William and Mary Kaniho, siblings Willie Jr., Dolly, Dan, Sonny, Dudu, Kenneth, and Charlene, son Marty Jr., and brother-in-law Cliff Chamberlin. He is survived by his wife Sharon of Sterling; sons Richard (June) and Toni (Bessi), all of Waimea; sisters, June Gouveia of Kona and Mary Tegman of Waimea; beloved mother-in-law Fern Chamberlin; brother-in-law Gary (Mindy) Chamberlin all of Sterling; sister-in-law Karen (Dave) Skoglund of Houston, Texas; daughter-in-law, Vivian of Anchorage; nine grandchildren, and two greatgrandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives, including many friends in his church and work family in the Peninsula area and Lower 48. Flowers are welcome. Other donations can be made in Martin’s honor to a Wounded Warrior or Veteran Charity or to the Sterling Senior Center. Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.

proven to increase public interest in service on a board as potential board members would not have to run or otherwise comply with the election process requirements,” the memo said. The memo said the change would significantly reduce time and expense involved with borough elections, and that the clerk’s office has indicated thousands of

dollars could be saved by eliminating the seats from the election process, the memo said. Cost savings would come from a reduction in printing costs and the time required of election officials and the clerk’s office when it comes to reviewing ballots, the memo said. The ordinance for introduction said the appointment process will remain a public process, where openings will be advertised. The mayor will appoint interested applicants and the assembly confirms the appointment.

Lila Ann Krohn

August 18, 1943 - August 18, 2019 Longtime Alaskan and Sterling resident Lila Ann Krohn, 76, passed away peacefully Sunday, Aug. 18, 2019 at home in Sterling. At her request, no formal services are planned. The family held a private gathering in her honor. Lila Ann was born Aug. 18, 1943 at Ft. Riley, Kansas. She returned with her family to Alaska in 1945 following the War residing in Palmer, where her mother and maternal grandparents were Mat-Su Valley Original colonists. She graduated from Palmer High School and later attended the Peterson Business School. She was the office manager at John Stepp Friendly Ford and Glacier Lincoln Mercury in Anchorage from 1967-75. She then went to work as the office manager at Ralph M. Parson Company until 1976. She moved to the Kenai Peninsula and in 1977 became a partner with her husband Ed at Kenai Auto, Inc. She retired from Kenai Auto in 2008. Lila Ann was a 4-H Leader and State Treasurer for Ducks Unlimited. She was also the winner of the People’s Choice Award at Earth, Fire & Fiber at the Anchorage Show. Lila Ann was an artist that specialized in wearable arts and quilts, for which she received numerous awards. Her family wrote, “She was a loving, generous and honest person who never gave up. She was always looking for that last penny to balance the books and was a wonderful partner in both business and 42 years of marriage. She will be greatly missed.” Lila was preceded in death by her father, Dale Graham, her mother, Dorothy Woods, her adopted father, Wilson Woods and brother Dee Woods. She is survived by her loving husband, Ed Krohn; stepsons and their spouses, Michael and Rhonda Krohn, Brian and Linda Krohn; grandchildren, Ryan, Mackenna and Morgan Krohn and dog Linka; niece, Marnice Marshall and husband, Darrin and their family; nephew, Russell Woods and wife, Kristen and their family; sister-in-law, Lynne Woods and many other loving family members and close friends. In Lila Ann’s name, memorial donations may be sent to the Central Peninsula Health Foundation – 250 Hospital Place – Soldotna, Alaska or to the Kenai Animal Shelter where many pets were adopted and given a loving home by Lila Ann and Ed. Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel.

one of the borough land sales and it had a potentially very negative impact on us,” Davis said. “At the last minute we were able to divert that, but through that process we realized we didn’t have a voice in the planning commission.” Davis said one of his neighbors suggested the community create an advisory planning commission as a way to have a voice in how their neighborhood is affected. “We don’t have a voice feeding the planning commission,” Davis said. “We felt like we needed that voice. We’re complex. We’ve got industry and agriculture. We got residential areas and businesses. We got it all. So we need a voice. We haven’t had it.” The petition to create the commission requires 20

signatures. Davis said he gathered 27. The borough used the census-designated place boundaries for Kalifornsky — covering most of Kalifornsky Beach Road down toward Kasilof, as well as the Sterling Highway area south of Soldotna. Mayor Charlie Pierce will appoint seven residents to the commission within 90 days of the adoption of the ordinance. Davis said he hopes the commission leadership would include a diverse group of Kalifornsky residents — from business owners, farmers, homeowners and industry members in the community. “We want people on there who care about how the community develops,” Wall said.

What others say

Despite cries of hypocrisy, Republicans would fill Supreme Court seat



f a seat on the United States Supreme Court opens up, President Trump must nominate a judge and the GOPmajority Senate must, if the nominee is qualified, confirm him or her. Undoubtedly, there will be a loud and raucous chorus of voices decrying such a maneuver and we are already hearing warnings of monumental chaos if the president and the Senate majority leader were to move forward. As the Herald’s Rick Sobey and Sean Philip Cotter reported, political prognosticators fear the worst. “Both sides would be fighting it out as if it’s Armageddon,” pollster John Zogby said Sunday. “Democrats would be saying, ‘This is the end of the world and the end of America as we know it.’ It would be a battle royal.” David Axelrod, who was senior adviser to President Obama, tweeted: “If there is a SCOTUS vacancy next year and @senatemajldr carries through on his extraordinary promise to fill it — despite his own previous precedent in blocking Garland — it will tear this country apart.” Pundits expect the GOP Senate would ignore its own 2016 precedent — thereby “enraging Democrats and many moderate independents,” said Larry Sabato of the Center for Politics at University of Virginia. Both parties would use the issue as a rallying cry at the polls and we could expect horrible behavior on the part of politicians and the media as we saw during the Kavanaugh hearings. One point of contention will be perceived hypocrisy on the part of Senate Majority Mitch McConnell, who blocked the nomination of Obama nominee Merrick Garland in 2016. At the time, McConnell released a statement, reading, “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” Already, McConnell has said publicly that if a seat were to open up next year he’d fill it. He sidesteps accusations of hypocrisy by noting that the president and the Senate belonged to two different political parties in 2016 and that would not be the case in 2020. “You have to go back to 1880 to find the last time a vacancy created in a presidential election year on the Supreme Court was confirmed by a Senate of a different party than the president,” McConnell told Fox news last October. And of course, even if the Senate had chosen to hold a vote on Merrick Garland, the exercise would have been a mere formality, as there is virtually no chance Republican senators would have placed him on the court, with the impending possibility of an alternative, more Scalia-esque nominee just a few months away. — The Boston Herald, Aug. 27

Future is bright for Alaska farming


s news of a record-breaking 2,051-pound giant pumpkin caps another successful Alaska State Fair, it’s hard not to be optimistic about the future of farming in the 49th State. With over 85,000 acres of farmland in Alaska, the successful growth of farmers markets around the state, 40-plus farms producing peonies for domestic and international markets, and industrial hemp creating enticing opportunities, there is much to be excited about in Alaska farming. Raised on a family homestead farm in Homer, I brought personal and professional Alaska farming experience when I became director of the Division of Agriculture in January. I know what it means to weather the storms of nature and industry to achieve a successful harvest. While Alaska’s fiscal situation has been challenging for the industry and the division, Governor Michael J. Dunleavy has listened closely to both farmers and legislators to achieve fiscal solutions that work for us all. Our division is pleased to have their support as we work to realign our services for the 21st century and promote agriculture in Alaska — our share of the state’s constitutional mandate, “to encourage the settlement of its land and development of its resources by making them available for maximum use consistent with the public interest.” Our division’s core functions under that mandate will continue to be fighting invasive plants and diseases on land and in water; providing inspections and phytosanitary export certificates; producing and cleaning foundation seeds; and helping put more agricultural lands in Alaskans’

hands. Here’s how these priorities help Alaska’s ag industry thrive and grow: Our division tracks invasive species and develops and implements eradication programs to keep them from destabilizing or even devastating our native plants and animals, and their ecosystems. Our phytosanitary inspection program builds on Alaska’s reputation for a clean, pristine environment by ensuring the logs and other products we export meet Asian and other world market standards, supporting important agricultural exports. Our Plant Materials Center in Palmer produces Alaska’s foundational seeds, including the grass seed essential to stabilize and reclaim disturbed ground after construction projects, and the certified diseasefree potatoes that are an important crop in Alaska, the Lower 48 and internationally. Our division provides the research, consultations, and phytosanitary certification to help make peonies one of Alaska’s fastest-growing agricultural products, delivered around the world through our world-class air freight centers. Other division priorities that help Alaskan farmers include administering federal or private grants for agricultural research and marketing efforts, U.S. Department of Agriculture grants to monitor and battle pests, diseases and invasive species; the Good Handling Practices / Good Agricultural Practices GHP/GAP) Audits; the “Alaska Grown” program that promotes sale of “Alaska’s local produce; participation in the Western United States Agricultural Trade

Association that supports export of Alaska agricultural products to the Lower 48 and around the world; an Industrial Hemp Pilot program; and a multitude of smaller programs supporting specialized elements of the industry. Our division will do everything possible to give Alaskans the opportunity to purchase locally grown produce directly from the farm, from vendors at farmers markets, and at retail grocery stores. We will also work to remove the barriers that limit Alaska’s farm products from entering larger domestic and international retail markets, and to promote the agriculture industry in its efforts to establish new markets. Recently, Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Corri Feige shared her thoughts on our division’s new mandate: “As we approach the end of growing season and the harvest is in full swing, it’s time to look ahead to growing a robust agriculture industry in Alaska; one that attracts families to buy Alaska’s agricultural lands, develop family farms that will endure for generations, and provide Alaskans with the freshest homegrown meat and vegetables they can buy.” I join the commissioner in this commitment and look forward to working with all of Alaska’s agriculture partners to provide a growing, thriving future for farming in Alaska. David W. Schade is a lifelong Alaskan and director of the Alaska Division of Agriculture. He previously worked as chief of the Department of Natural Resources’ water section, and as a resource manager in its Public Access Assertion and Defense Unit.

letters to the editor

Funny River should be accessible to all ln a Letter to the editor published on Friday-Saturday, Aug. 23-24, a resident of the Funny River community alleged that she represented 97% of the community’s 2,145 residential lot owners (2,080), who oppose a state-designed, off-current boat launch with ample tow vehicle parking along the 36 Mile Funny River road corridor. If constructed, she alleged that the bridge over Funny River could not handle the traffic; that the solid waste transfer site at Mile 10 Funny River Road can “… barely deal with the local trash as it is; that more stress would be put on ambulatory and fire response; and, specifically stated that if you supported boat and bank fishing you would be “highly negligent” with a reasoning that the current access to the river, “is adequate.” Now, let’s get the storyline correct by addressing these “opinions,” and rely on the facts. The only single, collective entity who represent the 97% (in fact a 100% of the Funny River’s 2,145 residential lot owners) are our local, state, and federal elected officials. If constructed, the launch would be used by the same people who currently reside in this area so NO ADDITIONAL impact on these services would result from the vehicle traffic over the Funny River Bridge, nor ambulatory and fire service to the area. Since there are only approximately nine, yes only nine, state-authorized public fishing spots in the over 15,000 running feet of state-owned riverfront property, I do not believe that the hundreds of fisherman residing along this road corridor should have to drive to the lower river to teach their children how to catch a sockeye salmon. Finally, the statement that, “If users of the river complain about driving 10-17 miles to launch their boat then so be it,” is unacceptable. It is more likely 40 miles each way if you reside near Brown’s Lake, and there are four state-operated public boat launches on the opposing Sterling side of the Kenai River complemented by thousands of feet

of elevated fishing platforms along this same river corridor. And, if the author represents the 2,080 residents who oppose a public boat launch, where were they on July 2, 2019 to testify against Borough Ordinance 2019-042 which passed unanimously by the Borough Assembly? — John Grunza 40-year off river Funny River resident

River access would benefit community I have lived out Funny River Road since we built our house here in 1979. We raised our four kids here. I was not aware there was any thought of a public boat launch until I saw a recent letter opposing it. The Funny River community has needed a public boat launch for more than 40 years. The letter writer wrote of “seasonal residents” claiming “all” of Funny River wanting a boat launch. She then went on to claim 97% of Funny River opposed the boat launch. (I did not know a river could have an opinion.) I suspect the number of Funny River Road residents in favor and opposed to the boat launch is in between. In Alaska, as in the nation, I doubt you could find 97% of all residents agreeing to anything. The “seasonal residents,” like the permanent locals, own property, pay taxes and have as much right to government services and consideration as anyone else. I have driven Funny River Road for 40 years. When I first moved out here it was not uncommon to drive to or from town and not see another soul. This summer, in July, I counted more than 120 vehicles going the other way on a 14-mile drive. They were practically bumper to bumper. I did not count the number of boats being towed, but it was considerable. The letter writer seemed to indicate only “seasonal people” wanted a boat launch. A fair number of the pickups I have seen hauling boats I am also used to seeing haul firewood at other times of the year. I suspect they are permanent

folks. I also suspect a lot of them would like to have a local public boat launch. Not everyone is lucky or rich enough to live on the river or have a private boat launch. The letter writer wrote that if a public boat launch were put in people would drive from town and overload Funny River Road’s capacity. I do not think anyone would drive an extra 11 miles down a twisty, two-lane road to use the Funny River boat launch. There are a number of public launches on the other side of the Kenai River a lot easier to reach. That little inconvenience should lower her fears of overloading Funny River Road’s services. The letter writer writes of the quirky little bridge over Funny River. Before DOT paved Funny River Road about 18 years ago, the bridge was marked as a one-lane bridge. DOT did not widen it. Now it is marked as a narrow bridge. We were very courteous to one another, waiting patiently for oncoming traffic to clear. I still treat it as a one-lane bridge because it is so narrow and let other traffic pass. We all used to wave at each other because we were neighbors. I still do. People are going to use the river whether they can launch conveniently near their Funny River homes or have to drive to town. Putting in a public boat launch in the Funny River community would cut down a lot of the road traffic and make our quirky little bridge more convenient. Let us learn to live with and accept our neighbors and their views. We can all respectfully agree to disagree with another’s views without condemning them. I speak for myself. I am a nobody, just another Funny River Fool. Bill Parker Funny River

Make your voice heard on annexation For many years now, the city of Soldotna has bludgeoned its way toward annexing areas of the borough whose residents and

property owners don’t want to be annexed. Their choice of method for accomplishing this has been the Legislative Review Process. To annex an area by the Legislative Review Process is to take it over without a vote of those who are affected. It is the least democratic of the five avenues a city can use to expand its borders. The first go-round saw petitions with hundreds of signatures and public testimony in meeting after meeting against annexation. The entire Soldotna City Council turned a deaf ear toward the outpouring of public sentiment and voted to annex anyway. One man, then city mayor Dave Carey, vetoed their decision and we escaped becoming an unwilling part of the city of Soldotna. In 2015-16, the issue raised its ugly head once again. In spite of more petitions with over 1,000 signatures and more public outcry, the city council voted to have the matter studied. The Athena group assessed the need for annexation and their findings did not support the city’s desire to extend the current boundaries. The city of Soldotna has the largest tax-based income of any city in the borough. Fast forward to 2018 and the city of Soldotna, in spite of reams of negative comment from those who would be impacted, decided to go ahead, using the Legislative Review Process, to annex those areas that would provide the city with the most lucrative tax revenue. This coming Saturday, Sept. 7 at SoHi Auditorium, the city will offer its final token meeting for public comment before petitioning the Local Boundary Commission in Juneau for permission to annex several areas adjacent to its present boundaries — areas whose residents and property owners will have no vote. What can you do? Please, come to the meeting on Sept. 7. Make your voice heard. Support those who are being denied the right to vote on their future. Who knows where the city will go next? — Sally Oelrich Soldotna

5 dead in West Texas shooting Associated Press

ODESSA, Texas — At least five people were dead after a gunman who hijacked a postal service vehicle in West Texas shot more than 20 people, authorities said Saturday. The gunman was killed and three law enforcement officers were among the injured. The shooting began with a traffic stop where gunfire was exchanged with police, setting off a chaotic afternoon during which the suspect

hijacked a U.S. Postal Service vehicle and began firing at random in the area of Odesa and Midland, hitting multiple people. Cell phone video showed people running out of a movie theatre, and as Odesa television station KOSA aired breaking developments on live TV, their broadcast was interrupted by police telling them they had to clear the area. Police initially reported that there could be more than one shooter, but Odesa Police Chief Michael Gerke

said authorities now believe it was only one. “Once this individual was taken out of the picture, there have been no more victims,” Gerke said. Gerke described the suspect as a white male in his 30s. He did not name him but said he has some idea who he is. Gerke said that in addition to the injured officers, there were at least 21 civilian shooting victims. He said at least five people died. He did not say whether the shooter

was included among those five dead, and it was not clear whether he was including the five dead among the at least 21 civilian shooting victims. The shooting comes just weeks after a gunman in the Texas border city of El Paso killed 22 people after opening fire at a Walmart. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott this week held two meetings with lawmakers about how to prevent mass more shootings in Texas. He said he would visit the area Sunday.

Government: Let’s end agreement for migrant kid detention By ASTRID GALVAN Associated Press

PHOENIX — The U.S. government on Friday took another major step to end a settlement agreement governing the length of time and conditions in which it can detain immigrant children. Government attorneys have filed a notice requesting that a federal judge dissolve what’s widely known as the Flores settlement agreement. First signed in 1997, the agreement limits how long children can be in detention to generally 20 days while also spelling out conditions. Prior to the agreement, for example, immigrant youths who traveled to the U.S. without a parent were detained with adults of the opposite sex. The Flores agreement has been a focal point of President Donald Trump’s calls to reduce immigration. His administration says it’s a loophole that encourages families to migrate north.

In this March 27, 2019, file photo, Central American migrants wait for food in a pen erected by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to process a surge of migrant families and unaccompanied minors in El Paso, Texas, on March 27.

Authorities have dealt with an overwhelming number of mostly Central American families and unaccompanied children who have traveled to the border through Mexico over the past year. Over 400,000 families with children have crossed the border since October, and

nearly 70,000 children have arrived without a biological parent or legal guardian. Many are here to seek asylum and have fled extreme violence and poverty. Assistant Attorney General Joseph H. Hunt argued in the filing that government

regulations issued last week adopt the main tenets of the agreement, and continuing it “is no longer possible, equitable, or in the public interest.” The agreement is supposed to end when the government has adopted its rules through regulation. But immigrant advocates say the new regulation, which would allow the government to detain families with children for much longer than it’s allowed now, “would eviscerate the settlement’s crucial protections for vulnerable children.” “The basic human rights of children should never be commodities in the battle for political capital,” said attorney Neha Desai, who works for the National Center for Youth Law, one of the groups involved in the litigation. “Over the past two years this administration has constructed a hateful narrative about immigrant children and families which it has now woven throughout its Final Rule attempting to eviscerate the Flores Settlement Agreement.”

Ginsburg reports she’s on way to ‘well’ after cancer By Jessica Gresko Associated Press

WA S H I N G T O N — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Saturday she’s “alive” and on her way to being “very well” following radiation treatment for cancer. Ginsburg, 86, made the comments at the Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington. The event came a little over a week after Ginsburg disclosed that she had completed three weeks of outpatient radiation therapy for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas and is now disease-free. It is the fourth time over the past two decades that Ginsburg, the leader of the court’s liberal wing, has been treated for cancer. She had colorectal

cancer in 1999, pancreatic cancer in 2009 and lung cancer surgery in December. Both liberals and conservatives watch the health of the court’s oldest justice closely because it’s understood the Supreme Court would shift right for decades if Republican President Donald Trump were to get the ability to nominate someone to replace her. On Saturday, Ginsburg, who came out with the book “My Own Words” in 2016, spoke to an audience of more than 4,000 at Washington’s convention center. Near the beginning of an hour-long talk, her interviewer, NPR reporter Nina Totenberg, said: “Let me ask you a question that everyone here wants to ask, which is: How are you feeling? Why are you here instead of resting up for the

term? And are you planning on staying in your current job?” “How am I feeling? Well, first, this audience can see that I am alive,” Ginsburg said to applause and cheers. The comment was a seeming reference to the fact that when she was recuperating from lung cancer surgery earlier this year, some doubters demanded photographic proof that she was still living. Ginsburg went on to say that she was “on my way” to being “very well.” As for her work on the Supreme Court, which is on its summer break and begins hearing arguments again Oct. 7, Ginsburg said she will “be prepared when the time comes.” Ginsburg, who was appointed by Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1993, did not directly answer how

long she plans to stay on the court. Earlier this summer, however, she reported a conversation she had with former Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired from the court in 2010 at age 90. Ginsburg said she told Stevens: “My dream is to remain on the court as long as you did.” Stevens responded: “Stay longer.” He died in July at age 99.

‘They’re on,’ Trump says of tariffs set to kick in Sunday WASHINGTON — Expect a direct hit on many U.S. consumers from President Donald Trump’s latest round of tariffs on Chinese imports. He had no intention of pulling back on import taxes set to kick in Sunday. “They’re on. They’re on,” the president told reporters Friday before departing for a weekend stay at Camp David. Americans were largely spared from higher prices in his previous rounds of trade penalties. No longer. The 15% tariffs on $112 billion in Chinese imports will apply to items ranging from smartwatches and TVs to shoes, diapers, sporting goods and meat and dairy products. For the first time since Trump launched his trade war, American households faced price increases. Many U.S. companies said they would be forced to pass on to customers the higher prices they had to pay on Chinese imports. Despite the looming pocketbook pain for Americans, Trump tried to frame the tariffs as putting the United States “in an incredible negotiating position” with Beijing. “It’s only going to get worse for China.”

Trump at golf club after going to Camp David to track storm STERLING, Va. — President Donald Trump visited his private Virginia golf club for several hours Saturday as Hurricane Dorian bore down on the Southeast coastline. Trump traveled by helicopter from the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland to his property in Virginia. The president gave the impression as he left the White House on Friday that he would spend Saturday at Camp David with experts monitoring what has developed into a powerful Category 4 storm. He said he would return to Washington on Sunday to attend a briefing at the Federal Emergency Management Agency. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Trump traveled with a FEMA official and that he’s being briefed “every hour.”

Illinois governor pardons Army vet deported to Mexico CHICAGO — The governor of lllinois said Friday he’s erased the drug conviction of an Army veteran who was deported to Mexico in 2018, a step that the man’s supporters hope will help him return to the U.S. “I recognize this pardon is not a perfect solution, but it is the most just action to take to allow a U.S. veteran the opportunity to be treated fairly by the country he served,” Gov. J.B. Pritzker said. Miguel Perez Jr., 41, who was born in Mexico, doesn’t have U.S. citizenship but had a green card as a permanent U.S. resident. He joined the Army in 2002 and served in Afghanistan where he suffered a brain injury. He’s been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Perez in 2008 was accused of giving a laptop case of cocaine to an undercover police officer. He pleaded guilty to a drug crime and spent seven years in prison. He was deported last year after failing to persuade a federal appeals court to block his removal.

6 teens shot at end of high school football game in Alabama MOBILE, Ala. — A 17-year-old student was arrested Saturday in connection with a shooting that happened at a high school football game in Alabama, leaving at least 10 people injured. Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste tells news outlets that six people were directly shot Friday and one person had a seizure shortly after the shooting at LaddPeebles Stadium, a venue hosting a game between LeFlore High School and Williamson High School. In a post on Twitter, police said authorities arrested a male teenager on nine counts of attempted murder. News outlets report the teenager surrendered Saturday morning. It was unknown if the suspect has an attorney who could speak on his behalf. Battiste said the shooting stemmed from a fight, and the suspect pulled a gun and started “indiscriminately shooting.” — Associated Press

Today in History Today is Sunday, Sept. 1, the 244th day of 2019. There are 121 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On September 1, 1939, World War II began as Nazi Germany invaded Poland. On this date: In 1715, following a reign of 72 years, King Louis XIV of France died four days before his 77th birthday. In 1807, former Vice President Aaron Burr was found not guilty of treason. (Burr was then tried on a misdemeanor charge, but was again acquitted.) In 1923, the Japanese cities of Tokyo and Yokohama were devastated by an earthquake that claimed some 140,000 lives. In 1942, U.S. District Court Judge Martin I. Welsh, ruling from Sacramento, Calif., on a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of Fred Korematsu, upheld the wartime detention of Japanese-Americans as well as Japanese nationals. In 1945, Americans received word of Japan’s formal surrender that ended World War II. (Because of the time difference, it was Sept. 2 in Tokyo Bay, where the ceremony took place.) In 1961, the Soviet Union ended a moratorium on atomic testing with an above-ground nuclear explosion in central Asia. A TWA Lockheed Constellation crashed shortly after takeoff from Chicago’s Midway Airport, killing all 78 people on board. In 1969, a coup in Libya brought Moammar Gadhafi to power. In 1972, American Bobby Fischer won the international chess crown in Reykjavik (RAY’-kyuh-vik), Iceland, as Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union resigned before the resumption of Game 21. An arson fire at the Blue Bird Cafe in Montreal, Canada, claimed 37 lives. In 1983, 269 people were killed when a Korean Air Lines Boeing 747 was shot down by a Soviet jet fighter after the airliner entered Soviet airspace. In 1985, a U.S.-French expedition located the wreckage of the Titanic on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean roughly 400 miles off Newfoundland. In 2004, more than 1,000 people were taken hostage by heavily armed Chechen militants at a school in Beslan in southern Russia; more than 330 people, more than half of them children, were killed in the three-day ordeal. In 2005, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin issued a “desperate SOS” as his city descended into anarchy amid the flooding left by Hurricane Katrina. Ten years ago: Vermont’s law allowing same-sex marriage went into effect. Poland held ceremonies marking the 70th anniversary of the start of World War II. Death claimed award-winning conductor Erich Kunzel at age 74 and Wycliffe Johnson, a major figure in Jamaican music, at age 47. Five years ago: President Barack Obama, addressing a union crowd in Milwaukee, renewed his push for Congress to raise the minimum wage in a buoyant accounting of the economy’s “revving” performance. The U.N.’s top human rights body overwhelmingly approved the Iraqi government’s request for an investigation into alleged crimes against civilians committed by the Islamic State group in its rampage across northeastern Syria and parts of Iraq. Cole Hamels and three Philadelphia Phillies relievers combined to pitch a no-hitter, the fourth of the season, beating the Atlanta Braves 7-0. One year ago: At a nearly three-hour memorial service for the late Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain in Washington, McCain’s daughter and two former presidents led a public rebuke of President Donald Trump’s divisive politics and called for a return to civility among the nation’s leaders. Today’s Birthdays: Actor George Maharis is 91. Conductor Seiji Ozawa (SAY’-jee oh-ZAH’-wah) is 84. Attorney and law professor Alan Dershowitz is 81. Comedian-actress Lily Tomlin is 80.

Man arrested after highspeed pursuit By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

A Cooper Landing man has been arrested after a high-speed chase temporarily shut down the Sterling Highway on Friday, according to a dispatch from the Alaska State Troopers. According to the dispatch, Josh Lingle, 48, of Cooper Landing drove his truck past the barricades at the eastern entrance of Skilak Lake Road and again at the western entrance. The road is currently closed and the barricades are in place due to the Swan Lake Fire. The barricades are being manned by the Alaska National Guard. According to the dispatch, an officer with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Protection Office attempted to stop the vehicle when the truck attempted to ram his patrol car. The officer was able to avoid being stuck and pursued the vehicle onto the Sterling Highway. The vehicle continued approximately 15 miles towards Soldotna where troopers successfully used spike strips to stop the vehicle. The vehicle then allegedly stopped in a parking lot and rammed three patrol vehicles in an attempt to flee. The vehicle was eventually disabled by state troopers using a Bearcat Tactical Vehicle. After a short negotiation, Lingle was taken into custody and remanded at the Wildwood Pretrial Facility. Lingle faces three counts of third-degree assault, three counts of third-degree criminal mischief, one count of failure to stop at the direction of a police officer and one count of reckless driving. The vehicle was impounded on scene. Anyone on the roadway who had to take evasive action due to the incident should call the Soldotna Post of the Alaska State Troopers at 907-262-4453.

SoHi stops South; Juneau routs Kenai Staff Report Peninsula Clarion

The Soldotna football team defeated South 53-20 on Saturday in Anchorage in a nonconference matchup of two of the top-ranked teams in the state. The Stars came into the game ranked No. 1 in Division II in the Alaska Football Coaches Association poll, while the Wolverines were No. 2 in the Division I rankings. The game was originally scheduled for Friday in Soldotna, but the Swan Lake Fire forced the game to move to Anchorage. That worked out just fine for the Stars, because they already had to be in Anchorage anyway on Sunday to fly to California, where they will take on Christian High School on Friday at 6 p.m. ADT.

Soldotna head coach Galen Brantley Jr., whose team moved to 2-0, said he was happy to get in Saturday’s game because he did not want to travel to California with just one game under his belt. “That would have been rough,” he said. “It’s not very often you play a game out of state and they have more games than you do.” As it is, both teams will have two games headed into their matchup. Against the Wolverines, Soldotna got off to a quick start, which allowed them to lead 32-20 at halftime despite four turnovers in the first half. In the second half, SoHi was able to run away from South. “We showed our rust for sure,” Brantley Jr. said. “We looked like a team, at times, that had practiced in a gym and hadn’t played

football in two weeks. All in all, though, there were a lot of really positive moments.” On defense, Brantley Jr. was happy to hold South to 20 points while forcing five turnovers. The Wolverines use a spread offense, which the coach said is not easy to prepare for when staying indoors due to smoky air. “South’s got too many athletes to stay off the scoreboard,” the coach said. “They have a tremendous amount of speed. They’re the fastest team we’ve seen in a while.” Wyatt Medcoff led the charge with two rushing touchdowns, a kickoff return and a pair of interceptions. Medcoff has five interceptions in just two games this year. “Wyatt’s been phenomenal,” Brantley Jr. said. “He’s put together

two sensational games. We’ve always known Wyatt is a very talented player and people in the state are starting to catch on.” Hudson Metcalf also came through with a pair of interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown. Metcalf also caught a touchdown pass from Jersey Truesdell, who also ran for a score. Near the end of the first half, Soldotna had threatened twice but fumbled and lost the ball both times, the second coming with just 59 seconds left until halftime. But with under 30 seconds left, Metcalf got an interception, then on the next play caught that touchdown pass for a 32-14 halftime lead. Aaron Faletoi had a touchdown and a fumble recovery for Soldotna, while Cameron Johnson also added a rushing touchdown.

“That wasn’t the prettiest victory but we expected a little bit of rust,” Brantley Jr. said. “I thought we were the better team, and if we did the right thing, we’d pull away. The kids knew that as well.” Brantley Jr. said he had to check on a few players before he could say how healthy the team would be for the California showdown. Juneau football routs Kenai The Juneau Huskies handed the Kenai Central Kardinals their first loss of the season on Saturday night at Adair-Kennedy Field, rolling to a 59-18 victory.

Homer swamps Nikiski in rain By Name

The host Soldotna volleyball team defeated Kodiak on Friday and Saturday in Northern Lights Conference play to move to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the NLC. Friday, the Stars topped the Bears 3-1, while Saturday’s victory was a clean sweep. Soldotna head coach Luke Baumer said the team’s strength over the weekend was serve-receive, and Soldotna’s serving was not far behind. “The big thing is we have so many weapons,” Baumer said. “We have so much

depth.” Baumer said middle Bailey Armstrong and outside hitter Ituau Tuisaula make things tough when both are in the front row. “Who do we camp on?” Baumer said of the problem opponents face. “We can’t camp on both.” The coach said senior Kylie Ness and junior Morgan Bouschor add nice depth on the outside. Baumer added that senior libero Holleigh Jaime does a great job on defense. The Stars will be at the Shayna Pritchard Memorial Tournament on Friday and Saturday.

Now this finally looked like fall. Yellow speckling through the trees. Football. And rain. Homer defeated host Nikiski 50-18 Friday in a contest that had the imprint of a hot, dry, wildfire smoke of an autumn written all over it. This is Week 3 of the season, but both the Mariners and the Bulldogs had Week 2 games canceled due to an extended wildfire season. This week, Nikiski was supposed to play Valdez, while Homer was slated to play Monroe, but the Swan Lake Fire forced the Peninsula Conference opponents, who will play their league game against each other in Week 7, to get together Friday. Predictably, sloppy football ensued, with Homer racking up 10 penalties for 101 yards See SWAMP, Page B2

NEW YORK — Naomi Osaka looked across the net after ending Coco Gauff’s U.S. Open in the third round Saturday night and saw the tears welling in the 15-yearold’s eyes. Osaka also saw a bit of herself in the kid she’d just beaten 6-3, 6-0. So the tournament’s defending champion and No. 1 seed, who is only 21 herself, comforted Gauff with a hug and words of consolation, then encouraged her to address the 23,000 or so folks in the Arthur Ashe Stadium

stands who were pulling for the young American. Knowing how tough it is to lose, Osaka told her: “You need to let those people know how you feel.” So Gauff obliged — a rare instance of a match’s loser addressing the crowd from the court. And was appreciative of Osaka’s gesture. “She just proved that she’s a true athlete. For me, the definition of an athlete is someone who on the court treats you like your worst enemy, but off the court can be your best friend,” Gauff said later at her news See open, Page B3

No. 1 Alabama blows out Duke By The Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Tua Tagovailoa threw for 336 yards and four touchdowns as No. 2 Alabama overcame a sluggish start to blow out Duke 42-3 Saturday in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. Returning to the stadium where they won the Southeastern Conference title last December and the national championship two seasons ago, the Crimson Tide (1-0) was held scoreless in the first quarter — which happened only one time in 2018. But the Blue Devils (0-1) merely delayed the inevitable. Tagovailoa put his tight ends to good use. The lefthander hooked up with Miller Forristall on a 27-yard touchdown pass and then went to Major Tennison for a 1-yard score

Alabama’s dynamic receiving corps also got in on the fun. DeVonta Smith hauled in an 8-yard TD pass and Jerry Jeudy broke loose for a 21-yard score. Jerome Ford and Brian Robinson Jr. ran for the Tide’s other TDs.

No. 16 AUBURN 27, No. 11 OREGON 21 ARLINGTON, Texas — Auburn true freshman quarterback Bo Nix threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Seth Williams with 9 seconds remaining to cap the Tigers’ comeback. Nix barely converted a fourth-and-3 at midfield on the final drive when he tucked and ran. Only the nose of the ball was past the chain when officials measured. Then on third-and-10 from

the Oregon 39 with no timeouts, Nix hit Williams for 13 yards, and then found him again on the next play to put Auburn ahead for the first time. The Tigers, who trailed 21-6 late in the third quarter, delivered another openingweekend blow to the Pac-12. They beat the Pac-12’s highest-ranked team in a season opener for the second year in a row — No. 6 Washington lost to them 21-16 in Atlanta last year.

NO. 3 GEORGIA 30, VANDERBILT 6 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Jake Fromm threw for 156 yards and a touchdown, and Georgia won its 20th opener in 23 seasons and stayed perfect to kick off coach Kirby Smart’s fourth season.

The Bulldogs also easily won their 14th straight against the Southeastern Conference’s Eastern Division in their first league game to open a season since 1995.

No. 5 OHIO STATE 45, FAU 21 COLUMBUS, Ohio — Justin Fields threw four touchdown passes and ran for a score to lead Ohio State in his Buckeyes debut. Fields, the five-star transfer from Georgia, made it look easy early, engineering touchdowns on Ohio State’s first four drives. Despite some occasional rookie mistakes that caused the Buckeyes’ offense to sputter in the second and third quarters, Fields finished 18 for 25 See top 25, Page B3

and Nikiski taking 10 infractions for 50 yards. “The guys are getting squirrelly from practicing in half a gym and watching film,” Homer coach Justin Zank said after improving to 1-1 overall. “There’re only so many days in a week you can lift.” Nikiski coach Paul Nelson also said Friday was the first time his squad had seen rain this season. The Bulldogs fumbled five times, losing three, while the Mariners put the ball on the turf seven times, losing possession twice. Despite falling to 0-2 overall with the frustrating loss, Nelson said the game was a valuable building block for his team. “I’ll take this over a canceled game anytime,” he said. The Bulldogs jumped out to a quick 12-0 lead. On the opening drive of the game, Homer quarterback Anthony Kalugin was sacked and fumbled, with Nikiski’s Hamilton Cox recovering on the Homer 13-yard line. Koleman McCaughey ran the Bulldogs’ first play from scrimmage in for a touchdown. Later in the first quarter, Sam Berry scored his second defensive touchdown of the season when he picked off Kalugin and raced 60 yards for a 12-0 lead. “We just weren’t awake in the first quarter,” Kalugin, a

Peninsula Clarion

senior, said. “In the second quarter we woke up.” Actually, Homer started rustling late in the first quarter, when Kalugin capped off a four-play, 49-yard drive with a 20-yard touchdown. Zank said Nikiski was doing a good job getting to the outside and stopping Homer’s speed option. So Zank started running inside with sophomore Kamden Doughty and things immediately opened up for the offense. Doughty would finish with 61 yards and a score on 16 carries, but having that threat freed up Kalugin to have a big game. On the ground, the senior rushed 15 times for 118 yards and three touchdowns. Through the air, he was 6 for 15 for 153 yards and three scores. Two of those strikes went to freshman Carter Tenison, while the other was to Josh Bradshaw. For good measure, Kalugin snared an interception on defense, which he returned 49 yards to the Nikiski 1. Gabe Dash also had an interception for Homer. After falling in that 12-0 hole, Homer scored the next 50 points to take control. The Mariners had 241 yards rushing and 153 passing, while Nikiski rushed for 101 and passed for 30. “The defense gave up two scores, and after that they shut them down,” Zank said. “The offense putting up 50 points doesn’t hurt. I’m proud of the offense. It’s starting to come together.” The display of offensive weapons Friday left Kalugin

confident. “If we’re playing like we can, I believe we can take state,” he said. The one down side for Homer was the ejection of Jonny Gregoire for two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Zank is not sure if the lineman will miss more games. In the third quarter, Berry gashed the Mariners for a 45-yard scoring run. Nikiski followed with 12-play, 48-yard drive that stalled on

the Homer 15 after that. But between the hot start and the solid finish, Nelson found a lot to fix. “We had that great drive at the end of the third quarter,” Nelson said. “That makes it even more frustrating because it shows we have the ability.” The coach said senior Mason Payne got on the field for the first time this season and had a big impact at outside linebacker and wingback.

Twins break major league homer record By The Associated Press DETROIT — The Minnesota Twins capped a night of sensational slugging by breaking the major league record for home runs in a season, but that wasn’t enough to overcome Detroit’s seven-run third inning in the Tigers’ 10-7 victory Saturday. The Twins homered six times to bring their season total to 268, one more than the New York Yankees managed last year. Minnesota broke the mark when Mitch Garver led off the ninth with a drive to left for his second homer of the game.

ANGELS 10, RED SOX 4 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Albert Pujols homered in a seven-run eighth inning, Mike Trout became the youngest player to reach at least 275 home runs and 200 stolen bases and Los Angeles rallied for a victory over Boston. Pujols’ three-run shot to rightcenter off Josh Smith is the 3,184th hit of his career, tying him with Cal Ripken Jr. for 14th all-time. It was also his 20th homer of the season, making him the fifth player with at least 17 seasons of 20 or more homers.

NATIONALS 7, MARLINS 0 WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg struck out 14 in eight crisp innings and Anthony Rendon homered twice, powering the Nationals to the victory. Strasburg (16-6) retired 22 straight after allowing two firstinning singles. The right-hander did

YANKEES 4, ATHLETICS 3, 11 INNINGS NEW YORK — DJ LeMahieu homered on the first pitch in the bottom of the 11th inning, handing the Yankees their first victory in five tries against the Athletics this season. Aaron Judge hit a tying homer for New York with two outs in the eighth, his 19th of the season. The 6-foot-7 Judge also took a potential home run away from Matt Chapman in the 10th, barely needing to leave his feet for a grab at the right field wall.

METS 6, PHILLIES 3 PHILADELPHIA — Wilson Ramos matched his career high with four hits and extended his hitting streak to 24 games, helping the Mets to the road win. Todd Frazier had three hits and two RBIs for the Mets, who pulled within four games of the Cubs for the second NL wild card. Frazier also made a stellar run-saving catch in the sixth inning.

RAYS 9, INDIANS 6 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tommy Pham, Avisail Garcia, Ji-Man Choi and Travis d’Arnaud homered, powering Tampa Bay to the victory. The Rays have won the first two games of the three-game set

to tighten the AL wild-card race. Cleveland holds a half-game lead over Tampa Bay and Oakland for the first wild card.

CARDINALS 10, REDS 6; CARDINALS 3, REDS 2 ST. LOUIS — Matt Carpenter and Harrison Bader hit run-scoring singles during St. Louis’ two-run ninth inning, sending the Cardinals to a sweep of the day-night doubleheader. Each of St. Louis’ four batters reached in the ninth. Tommy Edman singled and Yadier Molina was hit by a pitch from Raisel Iglesias (2-11) before Bader tied it at 2 with a single to left. Kevin Gausman then came in, and Carpenter’s pinch-hit single drove in Molina for the dramatic victory. St. Louis (75-59) improved to 8-1 in its last nine games and moved 2½ games ahead of the second-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central.

BREWERS 2, CUBS 0 CHICAGO — Manny Piña drove in two runs with a first-inning single and Josh Hader finished a strong performance by Milwaukee’s bullpen. Ben Gamel added three hits as Milwaukee pulled within four games of Chicago for the second NL wild card.

BLUE JAYS 6, ASTROS 4 TORONTO — Cavan Biggio and Teoscar Hernandez each hit a

two-run homer, leading Toronto to the victory. Biggio drove in three runs and scored twice against the team his Hall of Fame father Craig starred with for 20 seasons.

ROYALS 7, ORIOLES 5 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Whit Merrifield hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning after Kansas City loaded the bases on three bunts. Bubba Starling hit his first homer at Kauffman Stadium after growing up about 30 miles away, and Hunter Dozier connected for the 24th time this season for Kansas City.

DIAMONDBACKS 6, DODGERS 5 PHOENIX — Eduardo Escobar homered for the third straight game and Arizona beat Los Angeles in front of a crowd of 50,180, a single-game attendance record for Chase Field. Escobar’s solo shot was his 10th home run in August and 32nd of the season. The homer came off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen in the bottom of the eighth inning.

BRAVES 11, WHITE SOX 5 ATLANTA — Dallas Keuchel collected his first RBIs since his rookie season and held Chicago to two runs in six innings in the win for Atlanta. The Braves knocked Reynaldo López out of the game with a six-run first inning that included Keuchel’s

two-run single up the middle.

RANGERS 3, MARINERS 2 ARLINGTON, Texas — Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a walk-off single in the ninth inning after Texas rallied with the help of a video review and beat Texas. Elvis Andrus scored the tying run in the ninth after he was originally ruled out by home plate umpire Jansen Visconti. The play was overturned via replay review.

PIRATES 11, ROCKIES 4 DENVER — Josh Bell hit his 35th homer, Kevin Newman homered on the first pitch of the game and Pittsburgh beat Colorado. Newman has nine hits, including three homers, in 14 at-bats in the series, and this was his second leadoff shot. Jose Osuna also connected, and the Pirates won for the 14th time in 18 games at Coors Field. Pittsburgh will try for a sweep Sunday.

PADRES 4, GIANTS 1 SAN FRANCISCO — Wil Myers homered, Manny Machado was 2 for 3 with a triple and Joey Lucchesi pitched six strong innings as San Diego defeated San Francisco. Machado tripled off reliever Tony Watson (2-2) to lead off the eighth inning of a 1-1 game. Josh Naylor singled through the left side of a drawn-in infield off Watson, scoring Machado with one out. Myers hit a two-run homer off Will Smith in the ninth to make the score 4-1.

NFL squads cut roster down to 53 players By Arnie Stapleton AP Pro Football Writer

The cruelest day of the NFL’s long calendar arrived Saturday with teams setting their 53-player rosters. Among the more prominent dismissals were Bills veteran running back LeSean McCoy, backup QBs Brian Hoyer in New England and Kevin Hogan in Denver and receivers Laquon Treadwell of Minnesota, Demaryius Thomas of New England and Josh Doctson of Washington a first-round pick in 2016. “It’s always a hard day because ... you ruin a lot of dreams,” Broncos general manager John Elway said. “It’s the hard part of the business.” The cuts capped an interminable preseason that

featured fewer stars than ever on the field with QBs Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz taking not a single snap and other established stars preparing for the season through joint practices more so than in exhibition games. The final weekend before the NFL kicks off its 100th season saw teams scrambling to get stars into their headquarters. The Seahawks were working to acquire Jadeveon Clowney from the Texans and the Cowboys were ramping up efforts to get holdout running back Ezekiel Elliott back in time for opening weekend. The Texans were the busiest team in the league. They also acquired left tackle Laremy Tunsil from the Dolphins in a deal that

netted them receiver Kenny Sills, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press. Houston also sent O-lineman Martinas Rankin to the Chiefs for RB Carlos Hyde. Tunsil improves a line that allowed Deshaun Watson to get sacked an NFL-high 62 times last season. Bills GM Brandon Beane cited the emergence of rookie RB Devin Singletary in the team’s surprising decision to cut the 31-year-old McCoy . “It was very difficult,” Beane said. “I believed in LeSean the whole time and again, it was down to the last minute we decided to go in this direction.” Another surprise cut by the Bills was veteran CB Captain Munnerlyn, who signed

with Buffalo three weeks ago after E.J. Gaines was hurt. Munnerlyn had played for coach Sean McDermott in Carolina. Overall, nearly 1,200 players were told they didn’t make the cut this weekend. Some will land with other teams and others will sign onto practice squads Sunday. But the vast majority of them won’t ever play professional football again, making way for another influx of college stars next April. A remarkable streak continued in Indianapolis, where Andrew Luck provided the biggest stunner of the offseason by retiring last week. With TE Hale Hentges of Alabama making the team, the Colts have now had an undrafted player make the roster for the 21st

consecutive season, a streak that began with Chukie Nwokorie and Terrence Wilkins in 1999. For the 15th time in the past 16 years at least one undrafted college free agent made the Broncos’ initial roster. This time it was Nevada OLB Malik Reed and Colorado State ILB Josh Watson. The Broncos need a backup to new QB Joe Flacco after cutting Hogan and rookie Brett Rypien. Elway said rookie Drew Lock (thumb) will go on IR Sunday with the hope he can return at midseason. “We’re exploring all options” at quarterback, said Elway, adding RB Theo Riddick (shoulder) and TE Jake Butt (knee) will also go on IR.

for 234 yards and a 51-yard touchdown run. Tight end Jeremy Ruckert caught two touchdown passes, and Binjimen Victor and Chris Olave also had scoring grabs.

No. 6 LSU 55, GA. SOUTHERN 3 BATON ROUGE, La. — Joe Burrow tied an LSU singlegame record with five touchdown passes before halftime and the Tigers cruised to a win. The Tigers (1-0) scored 21 points in the first quarter — something they never did in any quarter last season. Their point total was the most in a non-overtime game since scoring 63 against New Mexico State in 2014.

No. 7 MICHIGAN 40, MIDDLE TENN. 21 ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Shea Patterson threw three touchdown passes in the first half to lead Michigan. The Wolverines unveiled their new-look offense and showed they have a lot of work to do with the ball. Patterson lost a fumble on the first play of the game and the senior quarterback had one of the team’s two fumbles in the second half.

No. 10 TEXAS 45, LOUISIANA TECH 14 AUSTIN, Texas — Sam

Ehlinger threw four touchdown passes and Texas rolled past Louisiana Tech to give coach Tom Herman his first season-opening victory in three years with the Longhorns. Ehlinger was coolly efficient from the start with scoring passes on three of Texas’ first four possessions.

No. 13 WASHINGTON 47, E. WASHINGTON 14 SEATTLE — Jacob Eason threw for 349 yards and four touchdowns in his first game in nearly two years in his Washington debut. Taking his first snaps since the 2017 season when he lost the starting job at Georgia to Jake Fromm, Eason showed no rust, carving up one of the top FCS programs in the country. Eason completed 27 of 36 passes and led Washington (1-0) on touchdown drives on four of its first five possessions.

No. 15 PENN STATE 79, IDAHO 7 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Sean Clifford completed 14 of 23 passes for 280 yards and two touchdowns to lead Penn State. Making his first career start, Clifford chipped in 57 rushing yards on seven carries and hooked up with receiver KJ Hamler for scoring strikes of 36 and 21 yards. Journey Brown and Noah Cain both added a pair of touchdown runs while Ricky Slade, Devyn Ford and Nick Eury each ran for scores.

Delta soccer stays perfect, defeats CIA By Staff Report Peninsula Clarion

The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team lost 6-1 to Delta on Friday in Borealis Conference play at the Kenai Sports Complex. While Holy Rosary Academy did not make it down to the peninsula for a Saturday game against the Eagles due to the Swan Lake Fire, Delta made it down Friday and actually played the Eagles in the rain. CIA coach Kenny Leaf said his side did a good job of maintaining possession in the first half, but defensive errors in the seventh, 25th and 32nd minutes led

to a 3-0 hole at halftime. Leaf said the Eagles did get scoring opportunities from Isaac Johnson, Linnaea Dohse and Lucas Cragg. In the second half, Delta scored in the 42nd, 55th and 70th minutes to improve to 5-0 and drop CIA’s record to 0-2-1. The Academy did notch its first goal of the season when freshman Noah Castenholz beat a defender and blasted a goal into the top corner in the 53rd minute. CIA now travels to Healy for the Tri-Valley Kickoff Tournament. The Eagles start by playing Su-Valley on Thursday and Birchwood Christian on Friday.

conference. “I think that’s what she did tonight.” It’s that sort of maturity off the court, and a wisebeyond-her-years game on it, that has helped Gauff generate all sorts of attention already. She was the youngest woman since 1996 to win two matches at Flushing Meadows, her follow-up to a captivating run to the second week at Wimbledon in July. In this much-hyped showdown under the lights, Gauff often looked exactly like what she is: an immensely talented player who is still learning her way at tennis’ top level. “We definitely know what we’ve got to work on,” Gauff’s father, Corey, said. “She wanted to win the match. It wasn’t, ‘See how well you can do.’”

teams were out of action for a second straight week. Saturday, Seward was going to go to the Bartlett State Preview, but the air was bad early in the day so the Seahawks decided not to make the trip. The air then improved and the Bartlett State Preview was held without any peninsula teams.

Gauff pounded serves at up to 119 mph but also double-faulted seven times. She overcame a slow start to get within 4-3 in the opening set but also dropped the last eight games. Don’t forget: The U.S. Open was only the second Slam for Gauff, who was ranked No. 313 at the start of Wimbledon and is now No. 140. Osaka’s advantages in age and accomplishments — she is a two-time major champion, including at the Australian Open in January — played a role. So, too, did her on-target power, which resulted in a 24-8 edge in winners. “For me, this is the most focused I’ve been since Australia,” said Osaka, who’s had an up-anddown season since earning that trophy and is wearing a black sleeve on the left knee that’s been problematic lately.

Jake Pinegar kicked two field goals and Jordan Stout made another for Penn State (1-0). Will Levis threw a touchdown pass to tight end Brenton Strange in the fourth quarter. The Nittany Lions overcame early sloppiness before coasting the rest of the way to their biggest point total since an 81-0 win against Cincinnati in 1991.

No. 20 IOWA 38, MIAMI (OHIO) 14 IOWA CITY, Iowa — Nate Stanley threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns, Mekhi Sargent ran for 91 yards and a score, and Iowa won its season opener. The Hawkeyes got off to a slow start, but that was erased by the consistent ground game and some big plays from Stanley, who finished 21 of 30 in Iowa’s sixth straight season-opening win. Iowa opened the scoring with a 21-yard field goal by Keith Duncan, but trailed in the second quarter after RedHawks quarterback Brett Gabbert — brother of NFL quarterback Blaine Gabbert — picked apart the Iowa secondary on a 77-yard scoring drive. Gabbert finished 17 of 27 for 186 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

No. 21 IOWA STATE 29, NORTHERN IOWA 26, 3 OT AMES, Iowa — Sheldon Croney Jr. scored from a yard out in triple overtime and Iowa State rallied to beat Northern Iowa. La’Michael Pettway had a

pair of touchdown catches for the Cyclones (1-0), who barely survived the season’s first major upset after entering the year ranked for the first time since 1978. Croney fumbled near the goal line on the second-tolast play of the game. But quarterback Brock Purdy sprinted from the backfield to recover it at the 1 and set up the game-winning plunge. After the teams traded field goals in the first overtime, Purdy found Pettway — a graduate transfer from Arkansas in his Iowa State debut — in the back of the end zone. But Northern Iowa pulled even at 23-all after freshman Will McElvain scrambled long enough to free up Trevor Allen for a 7-yard TD catch. Iowa State forced Northern Iowa into a field goal to start triple overtime, and Purdy completed three straight passes before pulling off what might end up being remembered as a season-saving recovery.

NO. 22 SYRACUSE 24, LIBERTY 0 LYNCHBURG, Va. — Abdul Adams, Jarveon Howard and Moe Neal ran for touchdowns and Syracuse spoiled a most unusual debut for Hugh Freeze as Liberty’s coach. Still recovering from back surgery for a herniated disk on Aug. 16 and a staph infection, Freeze coached from a hospital bed in the coaching box. The school said he was in communication with his coaches and players during the game and that the bed

was used to support his healing back. Stephen Calvert threw two interceptions, as many as Freeze had said the fourthyear starter had thrown in all of fall camp, and was sacked eight times by a defense that returned players responsible for 34 sacks last season, the most in the football subdivision.

No. 23 WASHINGTON STATE 58, NEW MEXICO STATE 7 PULLMAN, Wash. — Anthony Gordon completed his first 15 passes, threw for 330 yards and four touchdowns in the first half, and Washington State rolled past New Mexico State. Gordon made his first college start memorable throwing touchdowns of 41, 48, 19 and 54 yards in the first half as the Cougars (1-0) built a 35-7 lead and coasted to an easy opening victory. Gordon finished 29 of 35 for 420 yards and five TD passes before checking out late in the third quarter.

JD Spielman ran back a punt 76 yards to make it a threetouchdown game early in the third quarter. Any easing of the anxiety at Memorial Stadium was temporary. South Alabama converted two straight turnovers into touchdowns to cut it to 28-21 and had the ball heading into the fourth quarter. Things started turning for Nebraska when Cam Taylor hammered Jaguars quarterback Cephus Johnson, popping the ball loose, and Alex Davis picked it up at the goal line and stepped into the end zone for a touchdown.


LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska scored two defensive touchdowns and one on special teams to bail out a sluggish offense. The five-touchdown favorite Huskers led only 14-7 at halftime and totaled just 66 yards in the second half. But their defense had five takeaways, the biggest one Eric Lee Jr.’s 38-yard interception return for a touchdown, and

STANFORD, Calif. — K.J. Costello threw a 2-yard touchdown pass before getting knocked out of the season opener on a late hit and Stanford went on to beat Northwestern. Costello completed 16 of 20 passes for 152 yards and the TD pass to Michael Wilson that capped a 90-yard drive in the second quarter for the Cardinal (1-0). But his day ended early when he was hit with a forearm to the facemask while sliding on a scramble by Earnest Brown IV with just 2 seconds remaining in the first half. Brown was called for a late hit that set up Jet Toner’s 51-yard field goal but wasn’t ejected for targeting. Costello stayed down on the turf for a few minutes before being helped to the locker room. He didn’t return to the game and there was no immediate word on his condition.

Inky hues saturate home decor By Kim Cook Associated Press


n fashion, it’s replaced black as the new dress-up color. And it’s riding a wave of popularity into home decor, too. What’s the buzz about? The color blue. And while all blues, from baby to sky, are popular, it’s the deep, inky ones that are exciting home decorators. “Navy is one shade with so many ways to implement it, from accessories to large-scale furniture,” says Nina Magon of Contour Interior Design in Houston. “It can work within traditional or modern design aesthetics. It’s a favorite of mine, because it evokes a serene and calming emotion while also evoking a sense of luxury and opulence.” Dark blues have become popular in the kitchen, too. “We’re definitely seeing an increase in deep, moody blues,” says editor Mitchell Parker. “It’s usually used on an island or base cabinets with white uppers for a two-tone look, but the most popular kitchen photo uploaded to the Houzz site in the past three months featured all-blue cabinets. It’s a safe but strong color that pairs nicely with satin brass finishes, which are also having a moment right now.” Benjamin Moore’s color marketing director, Andrea Magno, says deep blues complement many styles or design goals, “modern to nautical, or sophisticated and mysterious. “Homeowners have more access to design ideas than ever, triggering greater confidence levels when it comes to selecting color — especially darker colors, which used to be a daring endeavor,” she says. “Dark blue has always been a classic, but today we’re seeing an increase in using this color for a variety of surfaces.” Magno says deep blue used on walls and millwork has a dramatic effect, and works well as an accent, too.

This photo shows Pottery Barn’s Irving roll arm leather armchair indigo blue.

“It pairs well with many colors, from soft yellow to deep teal, or even red, and it may be a softer option for cabinets, doors and walls than black,” she says. For paint options, consider Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy, Van Deusen Blue and Kensington Blue. PPG Paints’ Chinese Porcelain is the company’s 2020 Color of the Year. And at Sherwin-Williams, there’s Jay Blue, Moscow Midnight and Naval. “I see dark blue as the perfect opportunity for homeowners to move away from the beige neutrals we’ve seen dominating the home décor space the last few years,” says Phoenix designer Daniel Germani. “If you think about the ease and familiarity with which you’d wear your favorite jeans or navy blazer, this shade has the same versatility.” He’s collaborated with Cosentino , a maker of surfacing material, on a new collection of its Dekton Chromica for countertops, backsplashes and elsewhere that features an inky blue colorway. “It plays well with whites, grays, greens and brighter hues, and translates beautifully across decorating styles,” Germani says. Kohler is introducing Shadows, a collection of enameled, cast-iron kitchen and

bath products that includes a rich, saturated Indigo Blue, celebrating the natural dye in a new way.

Pinterest to direct vaccine-related searches to health orgs By Mae Anderson Associated Press

NEW YORK — Pinterest said Wednesday it will try to combat misinformation about vaccines by showing only information from health organizations when people search. Social media sites have been trying to combat the spread of misinformation about vaccines. Pinterest previously tried blocking all searches for vaccines with mixed results. Now searches for “measles,” ”vaccine safety” and related terms will bring up results from such groups as the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the WHO-established Vaccine Safety Net. Pinterest won’t show ads or

other users’ posts, as they may contain misinformation. “We’re taking this approach because we believe that showing

vaccine misinformation alongside resources from public health experts isn’t responsible,” San Francisco-based Pinterest said in a

blog post. Though anti-vaccine sentiments have been around for as long as vaccines have existed, health experts worry that antivaccine propaganda can spread more quickly on social media. The misinformation includes soundly debunked notions that vaccines cause autism or that mercury preservatives and other substances in them can harm people. Experts say the spread of such information can push parents who are worried about vaccines toward refusing to inoculate their children, leading to a comeback of various diseases. Measles outbreaks have spiked in the U.S. this year to the highest number in more than 25 years. In the U.K., Prime Minister Boris Johnson blamed people “listening to that superstitious mumbo jumbo on the internet” for a rising

incidence of measles in that country. The government plans to call a summit of social media companies to discuss what more they can do to fight online misinformation, though plans were still being worked out. Facebook said in March that it would no longer recommend groups and pages that spread hoaxes about vaccines and that it would reject ads that do this. But anti-vax information still slips through. The WHO praised Pinterest’s move and encouraged other social media companies to follow. “Misinformation about vaccination has spread far and fast on social media platforms in many different countries,” the statement said. “We see this as a critical issue and one that needs our collective effort to protect people’s health and lives.”

No easy way to address weight with children By Candice Choi Associated Press

NEW YORK — Red, yellow, green. It’s a system for conveying the healthfulness of foods, and at the center of a debate about how to approach weight loss for children. This month, the company formerly known as Weight Watchers provoked a backlash when it introduced a food tracking app for children as young as 8. The app uses a well-known traffic-light system to classify foods, giving children a weekly limit of 42 “reds,” which include steak, peanut butter and chips. Obesity is a growing public health issue that nobody is sure how to fix, and around one in five children in the U.S. is considered obese, up from one in seven in 2000. Childhood obesity often leads to adult obesity, and to higher risk for conditions including heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Getting kids to eat well and exercise is crucial, but figuring out how

to do that effectively is extremely difficult — and sensitive. For some, the app was a reminder of bad childhood experiences around weight and shame, in public and at home. “I don’t think we appreciate the bias and stigma that families struggling with weight face,” said Dr. Stephanie Walsh, medical director of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. That can make it even more stressful for parents worried about their children’s health, she said. There is no easy answer for achieving a healthy weight, regardless of age. But when it comes to addressing the topic with children, pediatricians and dietitians say there are best practices to consider.

noticeable. The key is to approach the subject with kindness and caring, and avoid blaming any of the child’s behaviors. Children should also understand that any changes would be intended to make them feel better, and not about how they look. As uncomfortable as addressing the issue may seem, failure to do so may make a child feel worse if they’re being teased at school or feeling bad about themselves. “In some ways, just to get it out there may be sort of a relief,” said Tommy Tomlinson, an author who recounted his lifelong struggle with weight in “The Elephant in the Room.”

Making changes

Kids eat lunch at an elementary school in Paducah, Kentucky, on Oct. 29. It is far easier to avoid gaining weight than to lose it, so getting kids to eat well and exercise is crucial. But how to do that effectively is extremely difficult and sensitive.

Parents may feel a conversation is not necessary, particularly with younger children, and that they can alter behavior by making lifestyle changes. But experts say a talk can be constructive, especially if the changes are going to be

Any adjustments to meals and activities should involve the entire family, so children don’t feel singled out. This is tied to the belief that the most powerful way to help a child change their behavior is by setting an example.

Framing changes in a positive light is also key, Walsh said, whether that’s suggesting new recipes to try together or asking about activities they might be interested in. “Keep things upbeat,” she said.

Millennial Money: Drink up savings at Starbucks Swap stars for savings

By Courtney Jespersen NerdWallet

One Starbucks grande Cold Brew with Salted Cream Cold Foam, please. Even if your order sounds fancy, enjoying your coffee shouldn’t have to put you over budget. Whatever your drink of choice, following these tips could help keep you from overspending at your favorite coffee spot — without giving up your habit.

Write a money recipe First and foremost, recognize your Starbucks purchases as a part of your actual budget. “I prefer that people be realistic with themselves and say, ‘Listen, this is a habit that I’m not going to give up. It makes my day. It makes me happy,’” says Marianela Collado, CEO and senior financial adviser at Tobias Financial Advisors in Florida. “Then it should totally be a line item. If you take $5 a day for 365 days, that’s almost $2,000.” Those who utilize a budgeting system like Mintor Quicken should create a “coffee fix” category in their budget, Collado says. This would fall under the “wants” section of your budget, much like an entertainment or beauty

Even if your order sounds fancy, enjoying your coffee shouldn’t have to put you over budget.

category. And be sure to set a monthly spending limit.

Keep your dark roast out of the red Then, make some trade-offs. For example, Collado says she’s noticed that some members of her team regularly splurge on their afternoon lattes, but bring their lunches to work instead of going out to eat. They value getting coffee out more than they value eating out. If you’re not sure if you can hold yourself accountable on your

own, don’t discount the ability of a gift card to keep your spending on track. Using a gift card as your payment method is actually a forced budgeting technique, according to Tracie Fobes, founder of Penny Pinchin’ Mom. She recommends loading a Starbucks gift card onto the Starbucks app with your coffee money allotment for the month. Then don’t reload the card again for the next 30 days. “You put $40 on that card, and when that $40 is done, guess what? Your Starbucks run ends for the month.”

You can maximize your monthly coffee allotment by joining Starbucks Rewards and downloading the coffee joint’s app. The Starbucks loyalty program offers customers the ability to earn stars — two stars for every $1 spent — that can later be redeemed for free drinks and other rewards. There are also other benefits, such as a free treat on your birthday, according to a Starbucks spokesperson. If you’re going to be making purchases at Starbucks anyway, it makes sense to earn rewards for your loyalty — it’ll stretch your coffee dollars a little bit further.

Brew up a bargain Loyalty programs are a popular savings technique (Starbucks told us its rewards program has more than 16.8 million active members). But beyond simply joining, there are less conventional ways to get the most out of your cup of joe, too. One option? Time your coffee run strategically. The coffee chain sometimes hosts discount promotions, such as happy hours. These are deals offered directly through the Starbucks app and could include offers such as 50%

off drinks or buy one, get one free. These are available to all Starbucks customers and typically start at 3 p.m. At any time of day, try asking the barista for less ice, recommends Kara Stevens, founder of The Frugal Feminista . The beverage may be slightly less cold, but the container will be filled with more drink for your money.

Pass on the pastries Sure, you can keep the iced latte, but pass on the pricey pastries, scones, cakes and other snacks, Fobes recommends. But if you really, really like the flavor of that iced lemon loaf cake, go to Pinterest and check for a similar recipe you can make at home. “Somebody out there has a copycat where you can make it at home and get the Starbucks experience without paying the Starbucks price,” Fobes says. Stevens puts her Starbucks food advice this way: Don’t linger too long. The more time you spend there, the more likely you are to be tempted by the food items. With a little extra work, you can drink up your favorite coffee with a helping of whipped cream — and without dragging down your budget.

How a credit card loan’s fast and easy cash can cost you By Steven Nicastro NerdWallet

Credit card companies want to turn your unused credit line into cash that you can borrow for things like home improvements or unexpected expenses. But accepting this loan offer may not be the best choice for your wallet or your credit score. In recent months, two of the largest credit card issuers, Citi and Chase, have announced they’ll offer credit card loans to eligible cardholders. Citi is offering its Citi Flex Loan, while Chase plans to launch My Chase Loan in late 2019. The new products appear to be aimed at taking a share of the ballooning market for personal loans, which hit a record $143 billion in the first quarter of 2019, according to credit reporting agency TransUnion, an increase of 19.2% year over year. Credit card loans are fast, convenient and cheaper than cash advances. But personal finance experts say the loans are still costly and can lower your credit scores, making it more difficult to obtain credit with low interest rates in the future. Before you accept this seemingly simple way to get cash, consider the risks and compare your alternatives.

have to request a loan — or even apply. The companies are promoting their “flexible financing offering” or new “loan feature” via email, direct mail or on account log-in pages. “It’s very tempting because it’s so fast and easy, with no application,” says David Rae, a certified financial planner based in Los Angeles. “If you’re already in debt, it can cause that debt to snowball and become a big problem.” The amount you can borrow depends on how much credit line you have available. Once you choose a loan amount and repayment term, the issuer transfers the cash to your bank account within a couple of days. Citi will alternatively mail a check. The loans have payback terms of one to five years, and monthly repayments are added to your card’s minimum payment due. Citi and Chase say they report payments to the credit bureaus as credit card payments, not as separate loan payments. Having different types of credit on your reports can positively affect your scores. In this case, “there’s no added benefit to your credit score, beyond just having a credit card and making a payment,” Rae says. You can continue using your credit card, but you’ll want to track your balance and stay under the credit limit to avoid costly fees. You also won’t get cash back, miles or points with the Citi or Chase loan.

The costs and risks

Rae advises the loans should only be considered for emergency expenses if you don’t have savings, rather than discretionary purchases. “If you’re trying to book a vacation or shopping for clothes, I wouldn’t recommend this product,” he says. Credit card loans may cost less than cash advances, but they aren’t cheap. Citi Flex Loans carry annual percentage rates that range from 7.99% to 8.99%, while My Chase Loan offers vary from 16.99% to 22.24% APR for borrowers with excellent FICO credit scores (over 720). For example, a five-year, $5,000 Citi Flex Loan at 8.99% APR would have monthly payments of $104 and total interest of $1,226. Taking the loan also increases your credit utilization rate — how much of your credit limit is used.

City, Missouri, said it can be an easy way to understand a complicated topic. Experts say the system can help adults eat better as well. But Kaitlin Reid, a registered dietitian at UCLA, said it’s a way of classifying foods as good and bad, which should be avoided. Seeing

Credit card companies want to turn your unused credit line into cash that you can borrow for things like home improvements or unexpected expenses. But accepting this loan offer may not be the best choice for your wallet or your credit score.

Most financial experts recommend keeping your total utilization below 30%. This loan can push you above that threshold and lower your credit score, says Bruce McClary, spokesperson for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling.

professionals would do that today, and there’s broad agreement on other mistakes to avoid. Using the word “diet,” for example, could imply there’s something wrong with the child, and that the changes are short-term. Trying to scare children by warning them about potential medical problems isn’t helpful either. And if parents are making broader lifestyle changes, they shouldn’t feel the need to intervene or scold every time a child

reaches for a sweet. “Guilt and blame are not good motivators for change,” said Stephen Pont, associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Texas Dell Medical School. By the same token, experts say parents should avoid making negative comments about their own bodies. Regardless of whether parents see noticeable changes right away, Pont said, there are long-term benefits of instilling healthier habits in children.

Middle school media

n my teacher life I spent some years in the Junior High. I liked that age group. Every teacher has a preference to where they hope to be and some have definite ideas about where they will refuse. and for some it is the Junior High, but I liked those kids. One of my most enduring memories is of a 13-year-old young man trying to convince me that “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown“ was a classic poem and he should be allowed to memorize it for the assignment. And I let him. He obviously knew something I didn’t, because I’m sure those who are 50-plus today will recall Jim Croce before Longfellow, or even Robert Service. Junior High these days is often middle school: sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Sometimes it is seventh, eighth and ninth grades. Whatever the format, those kids are bundles of attitude and emotion. Not much energy left for education so we reinforced, reviewed (in other words, pounded it in) and didn’t introduce much new material for a couple of years. The social arrangement is most interesting at that age. Mean Girls get their start in Junior High. These are usually a small group of wannabes who make life miserable for the kids who are shy or less socially astute, and in Junior High there are lots of those. These young ladies band together for social safety and go after only those they think they can intimidate. And then there is the Instigator. Some call him the Class Clown, but usually he is a little ahead of his adversaries and eggs them into rash behavior just to laugh at their discomfort or to get them into trouble. This guy (and it usually is a male) knows which buttons to push, and seems to have none himself, or they are well hidden. And he is personable enough that when he says “Aw-w-w, I was just kidding,” people (even teachers) excuse him with a chuckle. And the BMOC. He is usually a good athlete, or the president of a class who believes he is king of the hill because of that. He knows how to use his charm, but is not above a little blackmail if that works better. He usually has a posse that hangs around because he is who he is. Put them all into a class together and watch the fun. And during the full moon try to teach them to write a complex sentence.

But the more interesting interchanges take place when they think no adult is watching. Mean Girls and BMOC get their hits in on an innocent victim, but Instigator jabs them all then stands back and laughs while they go at each other. Every. Day. Now you know why I stopped watching the news this summer. I retired from all that several years ago and never had any desire to return. I turned on the news a couple of months ago and learned about racist vegetables. Then it was someone explaining the Mueller report for the umpteenth time, and talking heads parroting the word ’trope’ five times in one hour. I flashed back to an eighth grade girl whispering to me the ‘real’ meaning of “The House of the Rising Sun” trying not to say the word ‘whorehouse’. She learned a new word, but then I had to tell her parents (with a straight face) how the word BROTHEL came to be part of the conversation that day. Junior high kids are like that. They assume that because they don’t or didn’t know, no one else does either and are eager to tell/teach you so you can also be enlightened. Some current politicians and the news media are the same. I moved into high school later and watched the evolution of the students. The Mean Girls drifted apart in most cases; the BMOC found out there were lots just like him, and the Class Clown honed his skills. Whatever their destiny, the biggest lesson they learned is that real life is not a country song, or even a sitcom. And you can work the system only until someone smarter (or older) comes along. I saw one of my former Junior High students a couple of years ago, and he laughingly reminded me of how I had convinced them I was not an easy grade: I flunked my youngest son. It was the only time I ever had him in class (thank heaven) and he had to push the envelope however subtly to assure his classmates he was not the teacher’s pet. He deserved the grade. But when they found out I didn’t believe in identity politics, they got the message (and so did he!). Didn’t change the class dynamics, but taught them the teacher was not a pushover, even for special interests. Now, if we could just get someone’s mother to go to Congress with a red pen!

Founded by Betty Debnam

Mini Fact:

Cavers Go Deep Into the Earth photos courtesy NPS

Last week, we learned about how caves are formed and what types of formations and animals are found inside them. This week, let’s go exploring ourselves. A speleologist (spee-lee-AHL-uh-jist) is a scientist who studies caves. They can be experts in different things about caves. For instance, some are geologists. They study how caves are formed. Some are biologists. They study plants and animals that live in caves. Others explore and map caves as their hobby. They are called spelunkers (speeLUNK-ers), or cavers.

Human exploration

Of course, the first cave explorers were ancient people. Go back some 30,000 years and you will find people were exploring caves. Back then, people sought shelter in caves from the cold, rain and snow. To light their way, they carried torches or stone lamps. They burned animal fat for fuel. One famous cave scientist was a man named Edouard-Alfred Martel. He lived in France from 1859 to 1938. As a little boy, Martel loved caves. He worked hard to measure caves and took Edouard-Alfred careful notes about what Martel he found in them. He also developed special ways of using ropes and safety equipment to make cave exploring safer.

Explorers divide up the zones of a cave — entrance, twilight and dark zones — based on the amount of light in each.

Issue 35, 2019

Cavers wade through an underground river.

Martel explored thousands of caves in his lifetime and started the first international society to study them. He is remembered today as the father of speleology.

Safe exploring

Special features: • the Big Room, one of the largest cave chambers in the world. It could hold six football fields. • some of the world’s largest stalactites and stalagmites. • Mexican bats. Hundreds of thousands of bats, which summer in the cave, fly out at sunset to hunt for food. • wall paintings by American Indians.

Caves can be dangerous places. You can get lost in the dark. Rocks or boulders could fall on you. If you go into a cave, follow these basic rules. 1. Never explore caves alone. Go with at least two other companions. Kids should go only with This caver prepares to climb into Spider an adult. Cave at Carlsbad 2. Tell other people Caverns National where you are going and Park. when you will return. 3. Always carry three sources of light: a helmet-mounted light, a flashlight and a backup light. Take more batteries than you think you will need. 4. If you get lost, stay where you are until help arrives. 5. Don’t touch cave formations. It takes hundreds of years for a stalactite to form. If you break one, you have damaged the cave for a long time. Cave explorers have a motto: “Take only pictures, leave only carefully placed footsteps, kill nothing but time.”

Mammoth Cave near Cave City, Kentucky

Special features: • several rivers, lakes and waterfalls. • spectacular stalactites and stalagmites. • blind fish and crayfish that live in the rivers.

Eco Note Rocks may seem fixed, but they are slowly changing all the time. This process is called the rock cycle. Surface rocks are worn away by ice, wind and water to form sediment. This is then compressed on the sea floor to form sedimentary rock. At the same time, molten rock erupts through the Earth’s crust onto the surface, forming igneous rocks, while heat and pressure create metamorphic rocks underground.

You’ll need: • 1/2 cup crunchy hazelnut spread (Nutella or another brand) • 1/3 cup apricot preserves

• 4 to 6 servings vanilla ice cream

What to do: 1. Combine hazelnut spread and preserves in a medium bowl. 2. Microwave on high for 60 seconds. Stir to mix thoroughly. 3. Spoon over vanilla ice cream. Serves 4 to 6.

Jaqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019: This year, you open up to many new possibilities. You become slightly less detailed oriented and enjoy a more artistic, creative perspective. If single, you meet people with ease, but a potential sweetie gets confused by your need for distance at times. Take your time in allowing someone to get to know you. If you’re attached, the two of you seem to adjust to each other’s personality quirks with ease. Indulge your significant other more often. Let this person know how much you appreciate him or her. LIBRA knows how to charm you and get a yes from you! The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH The unexpected could have an impact on you when you least expect it. Use good sense with finances and anything involving possessions or work. Go along with plans, especially if you’re celebrating Labor Day weekend. Tonight: The only answer is yes.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Even if someone does not ask for your help getting a project completed, volunteer. You will enjoy the people involved and naturally have a great time. Make an additional effort to help others relax as well. Tonight: Do not push, but enjoy your immediate circle.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Your flirtatiousness comes out even if you try to be more subtle. Be careful, as you could hurt someone’s feelings. Your sense of humor helps you get over a difficult moment. Tonight: Enjoy a dear friend’s sense of humor.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Tension builds. You feel as if another person might be making unreasonable demands on your time. Even if you are not aware of those feelings, he or she picks up an attitude. Tonight: Clear out any misunderstandings.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH You seem to be in the right groove this Labor Day weekend. You make calls to friends, and before you know it, you have created a spontaneous get-together. Keep it simple and fun. Tonight: Getting into the moment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH You could easily defer a project and let someone else handle it. However, you also enjoy being involved with others. Do not forget a token gift for a dear friend who might be at a distance for a while. Tonight: Indulge, party, play.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH You understand the importance of ceremonies and events. Drawing a formal end to summer frolic and special friends might make you sad, on the one hand, yet you will completely enjoy yourself. Tonight: Leader of the gang.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH You might want to handle a personal matter right now. Make it OK to head in your chosen direction. You have a lot to discuss with a friend who sometimes clams up. Try to help this person open up. Tonight: Dinner for two.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH You love getting together with others, especially if there is some physical activity or sport involved. You might be difficult to hold back at the present moment. You could be found at a softball game at one point in the day and suddenly show up at a dance marathon. Tonight: Keep it up.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You could be bummed out thinking about summer, your friends and the serious nature of the next few months. You might not feel like buckling down and assuming a more seAQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Your mind drifts from topic to topic. Follow through on an invitation, and you might have more fun than you thought possible. Tune into someone new who seems very different, comes from a different culture, or lives far away. Tonight: Going for the moment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH One-on-one relating is highlighted. Though you might be invited to a last-minute summer get-together, you will be a lot happier if you simply hang with a special person in your life. You often do not get time alone for the two of you. Tonight: Make it romantic.

I feel it’s disrespectful of their space and violates the trust the owners place in us by letting us use their house. She views it as the same as a hotel room since we pay to rent the house. Are there generally accepted practices regarding this? — ABLE BUT NOT WILLING DEAR ABLE: The generally accepted practice is to leave

DEAR ABBY: My friends are getting married, and I am excited for them. I was there for their engagement and helped set it up for him. I consider them both my best friends. They mean the world to me. My issue is, they had an engagement party, invited all her girlfriends and asked them to be bridesmaids. I wasn’t asked to be in the

What do I do? — LEFT-OUT BEST FRIEND DEAR LEFT OUT: This has to have been a painful wakeup call, and for that you have my sympathy. Best friends are not treated the way you were. What you do now is recognize that the time has come to reorganize your “friends” list, downgrade the two of them to the “acquaintances” category and broaden your social circle.

It has been a little over a year now and not one word has been mentioned about returning any gifts. Other family members are in the same situation as we are. Isn’t it proper to return gifts if the wedding is called off? If it was an inexpensive, small gift we wouldn’t feel so bad.

DEAR ABBY: A family friend is getting sober from drugs. We used to talk all the time about everything. I keep inviting them over to do something or hang out. They accept at first and then back out. This has been going on for months, and I’m getting tired of it. I’m trying to figure out if I should keep trying or just stop. Is it the recovery process or me? — SOMEBODY WHO CARES IN UTAH DEAR SOMEBODY: Not knowing you or your friend, it’s hard to say. The next time you invite the person over and they back out, put the ball in THEIR court by saying, “When you are up for company, give me a call. I miss you.”

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars This year, you can be precise, totally diplomatic or acutely perceptive. Depending on which facet of your personality you manifest, you will get different responses. If single, your multi-faceted personality could confuse someone you date. You need someone who accepts you as you are. If attached, your sweetie will respond accordingly. However, you could get some strong feedback. Base your decision on reality but do not give up on a dream. LIBRA tends to appeal to your softer side.

Dear Readers: Today’s SOUND OFF is about a new scam— a serious attempt to get money from parents: “Dear Heloise: A man phoned my husband and said my husband’s son, Kelly, was in jail in another country because of a car accident in which his son was critically injured. His injuries included a ‘broken eye, broken left arm and face abrasions.’ Also, his friend, who was a passenger in the car, was dead. Since Kelly was impaired at the time of the accident, he would not be released from jail to return to the U.S. until his medical bills were paid. The police were holding his passport and cellphone. We were instructed to go to our bank and get $780 in cash, and were told where to send it. “Suspecting a scam, I phoned our son’s cellphone and talked to him. He was in Dallas! When we told the man on the phone that we were talking to our son and knew he was a scammer, the man hung up!”
