Utqiagvik to vote on first state tax on soda, sweet drinks ANCHORAGE — Residents of a northern Alaska community are set to vote on whether to impose the state’s first tax on most sodas and other sweetened drinks. Voters in Utqiagvik are scheduled to vote Tuesday on the proposed tax on drinks sold in the city, the Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday. The proposed ordinance would impose a 1-cent tax per 1 ounce of soda, energy drinks and sugar-sweetened beverages sold in the community at the state’s northern tip. The tax on a 12-ounce can of soda would be 12 cents. A bottle holding 20 ounces would be taxed 20 cents. A 2-liter bottle of soda would cost 67 cents more, while a 12-pack of cans would cost $1.44 more. Fountain drinks also would be taxed by volume, officials said. The tax does not cover 100% fruit or vegetable juices, milk products, medicinal drinks, baby formula, weight-loss drinks, or alcohol. Qualifying beverages must have at least 2 calories per ounce, which disqualifies zero-calorie sodas and bottled water. The ordinance states that 75% of the tax proceeds would be reserved for youth programs and activities sponsored or conducted by the city. If Utqiagvik imposes the tax, “to our knowledge, this is the first official ‘soda tax,’” state tax assessor Marty McGee said in an email. The Alaska Beverage Association opposes the tax, according to campaign finance reports. The association has sent flyers to North Slope Borough residents and is placing an ad in the Arctic Sounder newspaper. Utqiagvik’s city council voted unanimously to place the measure on the ballot. Utqiagvik Councilwoman Megan Edwardsen proposed the measure but said persuading the 4,500 residents to vote for it may be difficult. “I hope it’s implemented,” Edwardsen said. “I’m not going to hold my breath, though.” See news, Page A3

Giuliani subpoenaed; inquiry heats up By Jonathan Lemire, Matthew V. Lee, Mary Clare Jalonick and Emily Swanson Associated Press

WASHINGTON — At one end of Pennsylvania Avenue, the president raged about treason. At the other, the methodical march toward impeachment proceeded apace. Democrats on Monday subpoenaed Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer who was at the heart of Trump’s efforts to get Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden’s family. That

was after one of Trump’s staunchest defenders, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said he would have “no choice” but to consider articles of impeachment if the House approved them. With Congress out of session for observance of the Jewish holidays, Democrats moved aggressively against Giuliani, requesting by Oct. 15 “text messages, phone records and other communications” that they referred to as possible evidence. They also requested documents and depositions from three of his business associates. Meanwhile, the circle of officials with

knowledge of Trump’s phone call to Ukraine’s president widened with the revelation that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo listened in on the July 25 conversation. Pompeo’s presence on the Ukraine call, confirmed by two officials who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an internal matter, provided the first confirmation that a Cabinet official heard Trump press President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Hunter Biden’s membership on See inquiry, Page A3

Toxic PFAS found in many water supplies

A new report showed the prevalence of toxic chemicals in the drinking water of several Alaska towns — but so far the toxins have not been found at unsafe levels in Kenai. The report, published by nonprofit Alaska Community Action on Toxics, explores the prevalence of the toxins, known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), in Alaska’s drinking water. At airports and military facilities, PFAS is often found in firefighting foam, which can leach into the ground when used. PFAS contamination was confirmed at nearly every site investigated, the report said. In December 2018, six wells near Kenai Airport were sampled for 14 different PFAS compounds. Tests did not detect unsafe PFAS levels above the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation August 2018 Action Levels — health advisory levels set by Gov. Bill Walker’s administration. Valdez and Cordova airports similarly showed little to no PFAS contamination. Two wells in Kenai did show levels of perfluorohexanoic acid (PFHxA) at levels below 1 part per million, the report said. The PFAS exposure is linked to adverse health outcomes, including liver and kidney damage, reproductive and developmental harm, immune system impairment and certain cancers, according to the report. PFAS contamination and impacts to the safety of drinking water have been found originating from the Fairbanks, Utqiagvik, Gustavus, Dillingham, King Salmon and Yakutat airports, the report said. Preliminary sampling at Anchorage International Airport indicates the need for further testing, and results are pending for Juneau International Airport, according to the report. PFAS contamination at the Homer Airport has not been tested and is unknown. Under Walker, the state tested for several different kinds of chemicals. In April 2019, Gov. Mike Dunleavy lowered standards for testing, and now, the state Department of Conservation only tests for two of those chemicals. “In choosing to limit future testing of PFAS compounds to only PFOS and PFOA, the Dunleavy Administration acted against the

Cole Harmon shows off his great wheel — also known as a muckle wheel — during the Fireweed FiberFest at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex on Saturday. Harmon spins with qiviut, which is the inner wool of the musk ox and is harvested by Alaska Native elders in Nome. Harmon discovered recently that his wheel was built in the 1750s out of salvaged shipwreck wood by Quakers on the East Coast. The wood itself is about 900 years old and was originally harvested in Scotland.

Shelter says it beat back transgender rule By Rachel D’Oro Associated Press

ANCHORAGE— A faith-based Anchorage women’s shelter claimed victory Monday in a lawsuit against the city over a requirement that it accept transgender women. The city has agreed to make permanent a judge’s recent order affecting the downtown Hope Center shelter, conservative Christian law firm Alliance Defending Freedom and city

attorneys said in documents filed Monday in federal court. In August, U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Gleason issued an injunction preventing the city from applying its gender identity law to the shelter. The injunction showed the city it was unlikely to succeed in further litigation, Anchorage Municipal Attorney Becky Windt Pearson said. The consent decree filed Monday treats the shelter as a private accommodation, which means public protection

law does not apply to it, she said. “We had a fairly clear message from the federal court through Judge Gleason’s order that she did not think that we would prevail in our argument that downtown Hope Center fell within the definition of public accommodation,” Windt Pearson said. As part of the consent decree filed Monday, the city also has agreed to pay the shelter $1 in damages and See rule, Page A3

Moose Is Loose serves up its final pastries By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion



Saturday marked the end of an era for a beloved Soldotna bakery. The Moose Is Loose was open for the last time on Saturday after 18 years of business. People flocked from all over the peninsula and beyond to enjoy one last maple bar or moose snack before it was too late. The line outside the bakery was wrapped around the building, and people easily waited up to three hours to get their favorite pastry. Aleshia Quennell and her son Lucas were

returning from a bathroom break after standing in line for about an hour — luckily someone was willing to hold their spot in line. The Quennells live in Wasilla and visit the Moose is Loose every time they make it down to the peninsula, so when they heard the news of its closing they knew they had to make one last trip. “We’ve had a lot of the different stuff, but we always get at least one of the moose snacks,” Quennell said. Tabetha Aldridge is a Soldotna resident and remembers her mom bringing her snacks from

recommendations of career and environmental public health professionals in both the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation and Alaska Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) and ignored the evidence presented in more than 90 studies that identify adverse health effects for PFHxS and PFNA (Schlichting, 2019),” the report said. Alaska Community Action on Toxics encouraged state and federal agencies to stop using firefighting foams containing PFAS, provide safe drinking water to communities,

ensure responsible cleanup of contaminated areas and require biomonitoring and medical monitoring of people in communities affected by PFAS-contaminated drinking water. The report also asks that the state take proactive measures and set maximum contaminant levels for PFAS in drinking water. “Alaska should follow the lead of other states that are establishing stringent standards and not wait for action at the federal level,” the report said. “Given the evidence of harm to human health at extremely low exposure levels, we recommend establishing a (maximum contaminant levels) of 1 part per million for all PFAS.”

Today in History Today is Tuesday, Oct. 1, the 274th day of 2019. There are 91 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 1, 2017, a gunman opened fire from a room at the Mandalay Bay casino hotel in Las Vegas on a crowd of 22,000 country music fans at a concert below, leaving 58 people dead and more than 800 injured in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history; the gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock, killed himself before officers arrived. On this date: In 1885, special delivery mail service began in the United States. In 1890, Congress passed the McKinley Tariff Act, which raised tariffs to a record level. In 1908, Henry Ford introduced his Model T automobile to the market. In 1910, the offices of the Los Angeles Times were destroyed by a bomb explosion and fire; 21 Times employees were killed. In 1955, the situation comedy “The Honeymooners,” starring Jackie Gleason, Art Carney, Audrey Meadows and Joyce Randolph, premiered on CBS-TV. In 1957, the motto “In God We Trust” began appearing on U.S. paper currency. In 1962, Johnny Carson debuted as host of NBC’s “Tonight Show,” beginning a nearly 30-year run. In 1971, Walt Disney World opened near Orlando, Florida. In 1982, Sony began selling the first commercial compact disc player, the CDP-101, in Japan. In 1987, eight people were killed when an earthquake measuring magnitude 5.9 struck the Los Angeles area. In 1994, National Hockey League team owners began a 103-day lockout of their players. In 1996, a federal grand jury indicted Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski in the 1994 mail bomb slaying of advertising executive Thomas Mosser. (Kaczynski was later sentenced to four life terms plus 30 years.) The federal minimum wage rose 50 cents to four dollars, 75 cents an hour. Ten years ago: The U.S. and five other world powers held high-stakes talks with Iran in Geneva to demand a freeze of its nuclear activities; President Barack Obama, in Washington, called the discussions “a constructive beginning.” David Letterman publicly acknowledged having had sexual relationships with some female staffers as “48 Hours Mystery” producer Joe Halderman was charged in a blackmail plot against the CBS “Late Show” host. (Halderman later pleaded guilty to attempted grand larceny and served four months in jail.) Five years ago: Secret Service Director Julia Pierson abruptly resigned in the face of multiple revelations of security breaches, bumbling in her agency and rapidly eroding confidence that the president and his family were being kept safe.

case means the center can continue its critically needed work to help the vulnerable women it serves and fulfill its duty to do everything it can to protect them.” The shelter operators sued the city and its Equal Rights Commission last year, months after a transgender woman complained to the commission that she was denied entry at the shelter. The lawsuit said homeless shelters are exempt from the local law and that constitutional principles of privacy

and religious freedom are at stake. The complaint with the commission was dismissed after the August injunction, according to municipal lawyers. Alliance attorneys have said many women at the shelter are survivors of violence and allowing biological men would be highly traumatic for them. They said biological men are free to use the shelter during the day, adding there are other shelters in the city where men can sleep.

The plaintiffs maintain the person identified only as “Jessie Doe” showed up inebriated after hours in January 2018 and was not turned away because of gender. The shelter officials even paid for a taxi to take her to a hospital for treatment of a forehead wound from fighting at another shelter, according to alliance attorneys. The same individual showed up the following day and again was denied entry, according to the motion for a preliminary injunction.

Plaintiffs say they want the federal court to make clear that the shelter is not violating the law. Alliance Defending Freedom also represented a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. In a limited decision, the U.S. Supreme Court sided with the baker, but it did not rule on the larger issue of whether businesses can invoke religious objections to refuse service to gays and lesbians.

call. Arrest for Treason?” Trump tweeted repeatedly through the day but was, for the most part, a lonely voice as the White House lacked an organization or process to defend him. Senior staffers, including acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and White House counsel Pat Cipollone, were to present Trump this week with options on setting up the West Wing’s response to impeachment, officials said. A formal war room was unlikely, though some sort of rapid response team was planned to supplement the efforts of Trump and Giuliani. But Trump was angry over the weekend at both Mulvaney and press secretary Stephanie Grisham for not being able to change the narrative dominating the story, according to two Republicans close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. Democrats have orders from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to keep momentum going despite a two-week recess that started Friday. Staff for three committees are scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday to depose Marie “Masha” Yovanovitch, the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine who was removed by the Trump administration earlier this year, and Kurt Volker, who resigned last week as America’s Ukrainian envoy. Members of intelligence committee on Friday will interview Michael

Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community who first received the whistleblower’s complaint. Democrats are driving the proceedings toward what some hope is a vote to impeach, or indict, Trump by year’s end. They have launched a coordinated messaging and polling strategy aimed at keeping any political backlash in closely divided districts from toppling their House majority. Meanwhile, an outside group that supports GOP House candidates was starting anti-impeachment digital ads on Monday against three House Democrats from districts Trump won in 2016. The ads by the Congressional Leadership Fund accuse Reps. Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania, Elaine Luria of Virginia and Elissa Slotkin of Michigan of “tearing us apart,” and are among the first in which Republicans are trying to use the impeachment issue against Democratic candidates. However, support across America for impeachment has grown significantly from its level before the House launched its formal inquiry last week. A new poll from Quinnipiac University shows 47% of registered voters say Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 47% say he should not. Just a week before, it was 37% for impeachment and 57 percent against. That was before the White House

released its rough version of the call between Trump and Ukraine’s president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement of a formal impeachment inquiry. In the CNN poll, 47% said Trump should be impeached and removed from office, up from 41% in May. Both polls showed dramatic partisan polarization remains on impeachment: most Democrats expressing support, the vast majority of Republicans opposed. The polls disagreed over whose opinions are changing — Quinnipiac showing increased impeachment support coming more from Democrats, CNN from Republicans. Schiff said on Sunday that his intelligence panel would hear from the still-secret whistleblower “very soon” but that no date had been set and other details remained to be worked out. A day after Trump demanded to meet the whistleblower, whom he has repeatedly assailed, he said when asked about the person: “Well, we’re trying to find out about a whistleblower,” who made his perfect call “sound terrible.” The whistleblower’s attorney, Andrew Bakaj, said Monday that the person “is entitled to anonymity. Law and policy support this, and the individual is not to be retaliated against. Doing so is a violation of federal law.” Separately, the Justice Department disclosed

that Trump recently asked Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and other foreign leaders to help Attorney General William Barr with an investigation of the origins of the Russia investigation that has shadowed his administration for more than two years. Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said Trump made the calls at Barr’s request. Trump was requesting help for U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The investigation outraged Trump, who cast it as a politically motivated “witch hunt.” The Russia probe remains Trump’s motivating factor, according to Tom Bossert, the president’s former homeland security adviser. “I honestly believe this president has not gotten his pound of flesh yet from past grievances on the 2016 investigation,” Bossert said Sunday on ABC. “If he continues to focus on that white whale, it’s going to bring him down.”

While waiting, folks exchanged fond memories of the bakery with one another, such as getting the smiley-faced cookies after church on Sundays. “It’s just one of the things that is Soldotna.

Agency warns UA

ANCHORAGE — A university accrediting agency has urged the University of Alaska to address what it sees as a failure to meet critical standards, officials said. The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities has detailed concerns in a letter to university system administrators, The Anchorage Daily News reported Saturday. The letter from commission President Sonny Ramaswamy made public Friday is addressed to university President Jim Johnsen, Board of Regents Chairman John Davies and the chancellors of the University of Alaska Anchorage, University of Alaska Fairbanks and University of Alaska Southeast. The Board of Regents will likely hold an emergency meeting Wednesday, Davies said. “I know they’ve been a little bit concerned about the dialogue that’s going on, but to get a letter like this with some pretty harsh language in it is worrisome,” Davies said. A c c re d i t a t i o n is required for federal student aid and is key for students who want to transfer courses or faculty seeking grant funding or research publication. Many employers and graduate schools require proof of graduation from an accredited institution. The system’s three universities, which are separately accredited, have failed to meet standards related to governance and decision-making processes, Ramaswamy said. The agency head asked the institutions to provide a combined report or separate reports on efforts to make changes no later than Oct. 31. Ramaswamy underscored the need for “clarity around the authority, roles, and responsibilities of the University of Alaska System and its respective institutions and their leadership.” A written response from the administrators said they will not jeopardize accreditation and noted the agency did not raise concerns about academic or research program quality. — Associated Press

What others say

Employers receive an unfair advantage with noncompete agreements


t’s a truism that capitalists don’t like competition — especially for workers. In recent decades, American companies have tried to limit this problem by requiring millions of employees to sign contracts prohibiting them from moving to rival firms. The absurd and harmful proliferation of the practice is well illustrated by a recent survey that found 30 percent of the nation’s hair salons required stylists to sign noncompete agreements. A few states, notably California, have long restricted the use of the tactic. And in 2008, Oregon passed an innovative law that barred noncompete agreements for most workers, including those making less than the median income for a family of four — $97,631 in 2018. A new study finds that the Oregon law made a big difference for workers, increasing both how often they changed jobs and how much they got paid. There is no single explanation for the stagnation of workers’ income in recent decades, but a key reason is that negotiating power shifted from workers to employers. The rise of noncompete agreements is both a symptom, demonstrating the power of employers to dictate terms, and a cause, undermining the ability of workers to obtain a larger piece of the pie. Defenders of the practice say it encourages companies to make investments, for example in employee training, since the company is more likely to reap the benefits. They also insist that workers are compensated for the loss of bargaining power with higher wages or greater job security. Indeed, some experts have asserted that the elimination of noncompete agreements would cause wages to fall, because workers would no longer be paid for signing. The Oregon study shows that this theoretical model of labor markets bears little relationship to the lived reality. After the law took effect, job hopping increased by as much as 18 percent — and wages for workers no longer bound by noncompetes rose by as much as 21 percent. Put plainly, the old rule allowed employers to suppress their workers’ pay. Among the reasons: Workers are often required to sign noncompete agreements after they accept a job, when they no longer have as much leverage to negotiate. Workers also may not understand the terms, nor anticipate the consequences for their own careers. There may be some case for allowing corporations to negotiate noncompete agreements with top executives or other particularly valuable employees — although states would do well to consider the example of California, where the absence of noncompetes has contributed to the rise of Silicon Valley. But allowing broad use of noncompetes harms workers. A growing number of states have followed Oregon’s example in the past few years. Illinois went first, in 2016, banning noncompete agreements for workers making up to $13 an hour. Six more states have since passed new laws, ranging from Maryland, which drew the line at $15 an hour, or about $31,200 a year, all the way to Washington, which rendered noncompete restrictions unenforceable for workers making less than $100,000 a year. (The other states with new laws are in New England: Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.) A Republican senator, Marco Rubio of Florida, introduced federal legislation in January banning noncompete agreements for low-wage workers. In March, a bipartisan group of six senators, including Mr. Rubio, requested a Government Accountability Office study of the agreements, writing there was “no good reason” to let companies bind the hands of low-wage workers. The Rubio bill needs to be broader. It would protect only workers who are eligible for overtime pay under federal law — mostly, employees earning less than $23,360 a year — a significantly lower threshold than in the Oregon law. It also needs stronger penalties for companies that break the rules. And Congress should consider protections for workers who may justifiably be subject to noncompete agreements, such as requiring any deal to be part of the job offer. But the bill nonetheless offers a rare opportunity for bipartisan agreement. Congress should act to protect the freedom of American workers to seek jobs in an open marketplace. — The New York Times, Sept. 19

Alaska as we know it will be gone if we don’t act now

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



magine a place that serves as a buffer to wildlife in the face of the massive climate change we’ve been hearing about lately. In this place, caribou roam thousands of miles, unimpeded by roads or pipelines. Pristine rivers snake across the landscape, teeming with salmon that sustain bears, eagles, otters and people. Tens of thousands of bowhead whales, beluga whales and walrus gather offshore, and migratory birds from every continent fill the skies. This place could be Alaska three decades from now, if growing momentum to address climate change leads to a new level of action. But industrialization of our Arctic — from the expanding spider web of roads and pipelines to the pumping of more fossil fuels into the air — adds more stress to species, ecosystems and communities already feeling the brunt of climate change. A UN report released this week highlights the acuteness of these changes, projecting that warming oceans and rising sea levels could impact one billion people by 2050. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) offers a glimpse of a future where we’ve failed to keep planetary warming below the critical threshold of 2°

Celsius. It’s a world where retreating ice sheets have ushered in an era of submerged nations, widespread food and water insecurity, extreme weather and accelerated warming. The report represents the consensus findings of more than 100 scientists from over 30 nations. But those of us who call Alaska home don’t need to be warned about danger looming on the horizon. In Alaska and other Arctic regions around the world, that 2° future is already here. This summer, Alaskans experienced the gravity of climate change across the state. We felt the acrid smoke from wildfires burning our throats. Our fishing friends found hundreds of salmon that had died before making it to their spawning grounds in the Kuskokwim, Igushik and Koyukuk rivers, stopped by an oxygen-robbing heat barrier of warm water. While visiting the Arctic coast, I was hit by the acidic odor of rotting organic matter wafting from the permafrost. I saw a female polar bear swimming ashore with her two cubs, seeking rest on land because their preferred sea ice habitat — their real home — had retreated 100 miles out to sea. These changes have implications for all Americans, and indeed all nations. As the IPCC report makes clear, shrinking ice sheets and glaciers

and rising seas are likely to spark mass migrations, mass extinctions, the unraveling of ecosystems and the loss of natural resources. But the IPCC report also makes clear that we still have a choice on how we move ahead. In Alaska, many solutions to reduce our emissions are at hand and must be replicated, including in-river hydropower that does not harm fish, solar and wind energy (look at Kodiak!), energy efficient housing and many other innovative and affordable ways for Alaskans to live lightly on the planet. At the same time, protecting natural habitat will be critical for the future resilience of wildlife and people. The effort to secure protected areas needs to extend beyond the Arctic, to include coral reefs, mangroves, forests and other critical ecosystems that help stabilize our planet’s climate and nourish people in countless ways. Some of the changes underway in the Arctic and around the world are here to stay. But we can take steps to prevent more damage, while also helping people and nature adapt to the new status quo. If we act now, future generations still have a chance to witness caribou thundering across the tundra, salmon filling our rivers and thriving communities tied to the land and sea.

Biden’s dilemma: Navigating Trump’s no-holds-barred style By Bill Barrow Associated Press

John Kerry got “Swift Boated” in 2004. For Hillary Clinton in 2016, it was her “damn emails.” Remembering those failed Democratic presidential campaigns, Joe Biden is determined not to get “Ukrained” in 2020. Since a whistleblower report last week revealed that President Donald Trump asked Ukrainian officials to investigate Biden, the former vice president has struck an aggressive tone. He has told supporters that he would beat Trump “like a drum” in a general election and that the Republican president is scared of that possibility. Biden has demanded that reporters “ask the right questions” and accused Trump of trying to “hijack” the campaign with unfounded assertions that Biden and his son Hunter had corrupt dealings in Ukrainian business and politics. Biden has built his campaign around the idea that he can return Washington to a more stable preTrump era. But Biden’s ability to win will turn on his ability to navigate the turbulent, no-holds-barred vortex that Trump has imposed on American politics with his Twitter megaphone, deep well of campaign cash and phalanx of surrogates. And while many Democratic strategists and Biden supporters give him plaudits for pushback, there remain some worries about how the storyline might affect Biden’s tenuous frontrunner status. “It’s really a no-win situation,” said Karen Finney, an adviser to Clinton in 2016, when the former secretary of state was besieged with media scrutiny and Trump criticism over her use

of a private email server when she ran the State Department. Finney credited the Biden campaign for “working the refs” by sending detailed memos to the media explaining the timeline of Hunter Biden’s service on a Ukrainian energy company board and Joe Biden’s involvement in Ukraine as vice president to establish that there were no conflicts. The campaign followed that by pressuring television executives not to give a platform to Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney. Giuliani has alleged that Biden, while vice president, tried to quash a Ukrainian investigation of the company that paid Hunter Biden as a board member. The top Ukrainian prosecutor said earlier this year that his team found no wrongdoing, and there’s no evidence that U.S. law enforcement has gotten involved. “Why should Joe Biden be forced to defend himself against something that’s not true?” Finney argued. Trump raised his theory in a July telephone conversation with the new Ukrainian president, asking Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate the Bidens anew. That move, now the center of a formal whistleblower complaint and the House impeachment inquiry, could be found to violate U.S. law making it a crime to solicit or accept foreign contributions in an American election. “This is about Donald Trump, not Joe Biden,” said Barry Goodman, a Michigan attorney and major Biden donor. But a media cacophony can smother any argument, Finney said, pointing back to Clinton and to Kerry’s 2004 campaign. Kerry, a Vietnam War veteran who’d earned a Silver Star, Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts

for his service, was criticized in the summer of 2004 by a group of Vietnam veterans who — contrary to military records — questioned the service accounts that resulted in his recognition. Kerry was later admonished for not aggressively counterattacking the “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth,” despite his campaign releasing his military records. Finney put the onus on the media “to not get sucked in” to Trump’s narrative. Goodman, the Biden donor, said he’s pleased with the campaign’s strategy. But he said there are other ways to stay on offense — and not necessarily against Trump. Biden must also push back against Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, his chief progressive rivals for the Democratic nomination. “Many Democrats are scared … of ‘Medicare for All’ and losing their private health insurance,” Goodman said, referring to single-payer health insurance proposals from Sanders and Warren. Goodman noted an ongoing United Auto Workers strike in Michigan. “Those people are striking to keep the health care they have,” he said, recommending that Biden go to Michigan and turn the issue around on his primary rivals. Interviews with Democratic voters in early primary states make clear Biden’s challenge. “I think that a certain amount of dirt will stick to him, even if it shouldn’t,” said Lee Williams, 69, of Fort Mill, South Carolina. A retired Navy officer, Williams backs Warren, even though he says his politics align with the more centrist Biden. “The fact is,” Williams says, “that truth doesn’t matter to Trump, so on the campaign trail, all you will hear is Biden, corruption, Ukraine.”

Poll: Most disapprove of Trump on race relations By Russell Contreras and Deepti Hajela Associated Press

NEW YORK — Large majorities of black and Latino Americans think Donald Trump’s actions as president have made things worse for people like them, and about two-thirds of Americans overall disapprove of how he’s handling race relations, according to a new poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. About half of all Americans think Trump’s actions have been bad for African Americans, Muslims and women, and slightly more than half say they’ve been bad for Hispanics. Trump’s 33% approval rating on handling race relations makes that one of his worst issues in recent AP-NORC polls. That stands in stark contrast to his handling of the economy: About half say they

approve of his handling of that issue, while views of current economic conditions continue to be rosy amid robust employment numbers and a strong stock market. Four in 10 Americans said they approve of Trump overall, according to the poll, conducted before the release of a rough transcript of a phone call showing Trump prodded the president of Ukraine to investigate Democratic political rival Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement that she would launch a formal impeachment inquiry. The poll provides a bleak assessment of how the nation views Trump on race issues as he runs for a second term and repeatedly boasts of his popularity among African Americans and Latinos. Trump has consistently said his economic policies have been good for African Americans and other people of color. But the poll shows few

black Americans think that’s true. Just 4% say they think Trump’s actions have been good for African Americans in general, while 81% think he’s made things worse. Similar shares of black Americans think Trump has been bad for Hispanics, Muslims and women. “He speaks nothing but hate rhetoric,” said Chris Smith, 38, an African American information technology worker in Columbia, Tennessee, who considers himself independent but leans Democratic. “If the leader of this country is free to speak like that, there’s going to be people who think it’s OK to speak like that.” “He’s making people live their life in fear,” Smith said. Trump has drawn widespread condemnation for racist rhetoric throughout his presidency. He’s warned of an “invasion” at the southern border, posted racist tweets about four women of color in Congress and attacked

Democratic U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings’ largely black district as a “rat and rodent infested mess.” He’s showered praise on Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, a slaveowner who fought to protect the institution of slavery during the U.S. Civil War, and said there were “very fine people on both sides” of clashes between white nationalists and counterprotesters. But he has claimed he doesn’t have a “racist bone” in his body. The poll comes weeks after a suspected gunman, who is white, apparently wrote an anti-Hispanic rant before opening fire in El Paso, Texas, with an AK-47-style rifle on Walmart shoppers, many of them Latino. Some blamed Trump’s rhetoric for inciting the gunman. Simon Wey, 54, a Nigerian immigrant who lives in Houston and is a registered Republican, said the president’s rhetoric on migrants makes him feel uncomfortable.

Many say Trump harms blacks, Hispanics in US Many Americans think Donald Trump’s actions as president have made things worse for African Americans and Hispanics, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Q: Do you think that the things Donald Trump is doing as President of the United States have been good, bad, or neither good nor bad for each of the following groups? Good

“I think some of his immigration policies have been hurtful to countries with large

minority populations,” Wey said. “There’s a lot of uncertainty now.”

Afghanistan to Taliban: Peace or ‘we will continue to fight’ By Jennifer Peltz Associated Press

UNITED NATIONS — As Afghans await the results of a presidential election roiled by Taliban threats, the government used its platform at the U.N. General Assembly on Monday to tell the insurgents: “Join us in peace, or we will continue to fight.” Afghanistan was not the only country sending a message: North Korea

had one for the United States , saying it was up to Washington whether nowstalled nuclear negotiations “become a window of opportunity or an occasion that will hasten the crisis.” And even in the final hour of this year’s U.N. gathering of world leaders, Iran and Saudi Arabia traded barbs sharpened by a recent missile and drone strike on major Saudi oil facilities. Monday’s speeches

wrapped up a meeting marked by global worries over the rising tensions in the Persian Gulf region , the changing climate and the very future of the idea of largescale international cooperation that the U.N. represents. As General Assembly President Tijjani MuhammadBande put it in his closing remarks, “The world will not survive for long unless we cultivate the give-and-take spirit” of multilateralism.

Afghanistan’s national security adviser, Hamdullah Mohib, spoke two days after his countrymen voted in a presidential election in which hundreds of polling centers weren’t opened because the country couldn’t secure them against the Taliban. The militants control or hold sway over roughly half the country and warned voters not to go to the polls. Results of the elections aren’t due for weeks.

Mohib trumpeted the democratic commitment of Afghans who voted despite the threats — some despite having had fingers cut off by the Taliban during prior elections, he noted. In a country where a new generation of leaders has grown up in wartime, “the opportunities afforded to us through the gains of the past 20 years have allowed us to change hope into something much more powerful

— belief,” Mobib said. “We believe in our abilities to bring about the peace we have hoped for all our lives.” The path is far from clear. U.S.-Taliban peace talks collapsed earlier this month as a deal seemed imminent to end America’s longest war. It began in 2001 as a U.S. effort to dislodge Afghanistan’s then-ruling Taliban for harboring al-Qaida leader and 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden.

CIA soccer gathers 2 wins to improve to No. 5 seed Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team went 2-0 on the weekend to move up to the fifth seed in the nineteam Borealis Conference tournament, which runs Thursday through Saturday. The Eagles topped Holy Rosary Academy 8-0 in Anchorage on Friday and Lumen Christi 5-0 at the Kenai Soccer Complex on Saturday. Both games counted as double points in the standings because previous matches against the two schools did not happen due to wildfires. Friday, captain Isaac Johnson scored four times to lead the Academy. Senior Annika Castenholz had the first goal of the game, burying a penalty kick four

minutes in. Also, freshman striker Noah Castenholz had two goals and two assists, and Tatum Rozak scored her first career goal and also added an assist. Lucas Cragg had the shutout in net for CIA. Saturday, CIA honored seniors Linnaea Dohse, Annika Castenholz, Cragg and Denali Jackson. Noah Castenholz and Isaac Johnson each had a pair of goals to lead CIA, while Linnaea Dohse celebrated senior day with a goal. The Academy opens up play at the Borealis tourney, which is the state tourney for fall coed soccer in Alaska, with a game against No. 4 Birchwood Christian at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the MTA Events Center in Palmer.

A women’s running group from Homer, a pair prepping for the California International Marathon, and rainy, windy conditions prevailed Sunday at the Kenai River Marathon. Just under 200 runners, including relay teams, battled the increasingly taxing conditions at the race, which ran on an entirely new course this year due to road construction. Last year, the event had 260 runners. Instead of starting at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center and looping back via

Beaver Loop or the Unity Trail, half marathoners and marathoners started at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex this year. Half marathoners ran to the Visitors and Cultural Center, while marathoners ran to the Escape Route via Marathon Road before returning to Kenai. Marathon titles went to Jason Parks of Soldotna and Stacey Buckelew of Homer, while the half marathon champs were Marshall Genn of Anchorage and Kristen Buckwalter of Homer. Mallory Millay and Daniel Anders won the 5K race, while Marathon Red, the

team of Lisa Juliussen, Benjamin McGarry, Brian Baker and Gabe Juliussen, took the relay. Homer women had a big day, taking two of the top four slots in the half marathon and three of the top four in the marathon. Buckwalter chased down Heather Moon of Kenai to win the half marathon at 1 hour, 39 minutes, 7 seconds, while Jennifer Flanagan of Eagle River was second at 1:39:16, Moon was third at 1:39:48 and Homer’s Julia Ruimveld was fourth in 1:45:38.

Buckelew won the marathon at 3:27:30, while Homer’s Elizabeth Roedl was second at 3:40:01, Kenai’s Emily Heale was third at 3:41:08 and Homer’s Danielle Meyers was fourth at 3:41:53. Buckwalter started running longer distances about 14 months ago. Roedl, an old friend from high school, asked her to run 13 miles after a tough boot camp at a local gym. Buckwalter agreed to run 6 miles and quickly fell in with a group of about seven Homer women that do a long run once a week. “I was training with my friends for the full marathon, but had some health issues and decided to do the half instead,” said Buckwalter, who now has three half marathons and a full under her belt this summer. “I’m glad I did.” Buckwalter said she’d had dehydration issues at races in the past, so the rain, which didn’t turn heavy until she was off the course, was not a problem. She passed Moon with less than a mile left. “I wanted to win,” she said when asked about her finishing kick. “It was purely determination to win.” Buckelew, 40, is also part of the training group. The rain turned heavy while she was on the course, causing some marathoners to finish shaking uncontrollably.

But Buckelew finished and within minutes was ready for an interview. “She’s probably one of the toughest girls I know,” Roedl, 36, said. Buckelew, who won the Hatcher Pass Marathon last year and the Homer Half Marathon this year, had an easy explanation. “We live in Alaska, right?” she said. “We’re used to these conditions.” And Buckelew didn’t even have the runners as the toughest ones out there Sunday. “Thanks to all the volunteers,” she said. “They had the tough job of keeping us going. We appreciate what they did for us.” Roedl was running her third marathon this summer. She said she got her toughness from her adventuring father, Peter Roedl of Homer. “I grew up with a dad who made us do something no matter the weather,” she said. The half marathon and marathon started at the same time. Parks, 31, and Genn, 29, quickly bolted from the pack and took control of their respective races. Genn then started pulling away from Parks about 6 miles in. Both are eyeing the California International Marathon in December in Sacramento. The event is known for drawing a bunch of fast runners, so it’s a great chance to put up a fast time. Genn moved to Alaska a little over a year ago and is loving it. He won the Hatcher Pass Marathon this

summer. “I was using this as a training run,” he said. “There’s only so many races in the fall in Southcentral.” Genn would love to run under 2:40 in California. He finished at 1:19:30 on Sunday, with Soldotna’s Ken Youngberg in second at 1:31:20, Anchorage’s Ian Marks in third at 1:37:06 and Soldotna’s Lee Frey in fourth at 1:38:47. While Genn was able to get off the course before the heavy rains came, Parks was headed out Marathon Road when he got swamped. There was no rain at the start, so Parks discarded his arm warmers and gloves and ran in just a singlet and tight shorts. He just moved to Soldotna from Atlanta in July to work as a radiation oncologist at Peninsula Radiation Oncology Center, so he was noticeably shivering by the time he crossed the line. But Parks, who ran at Division III Centre College in Kentucky, emerged from this Alaska experience ready for more. “I didn’t decide until early this week to do this, because I had some nagging injuries,” he said. “But right now everything feels fine and I’m looking to that marathon in December.” Beyond that, Parks said he would like to try cross-country skiing this winter, as well as some of Alaska’s famed trail and mountain races, including the Mount Marathon Race, in the future.

Springs, Colorado, won the men’s race at 52:51, while Newbould, a 38-year-old living in Nottingham, New Hampshire, ran 59:03. An old running and cross-country skiing rival from Colony High School, Eric Strabel, also 38, finished 17th at 1:01:01. Strabel now lives in Anchorage. Denali Strabel, 30, of Anchorage was 17th in 1:18:35, with Grayson Murphy of Salt Lake City, Utah, picking up the victory in 1:01:45. Strabel graduated from Seward High School in 2008.

wide receiver and occasional wildcat quarterback Jaylen Samuels accounted for 134 yards of total offense and a 2-yard touchdown run. James Conner emerged from an early funk to run for 42 yards and catch eight passes for 83 yards and a score. The defense sacked Andy Dalton eight times and held the Bengals scoreless over the final 51 minutes. It wasn’t perfect. But it was a start. One that helped the Steelers (1-3) avoid their second 0-4 start in 51 years and reaffirmed their belief that they can find a way forward without Roethlisberger. “It’s huge,” Samuels said. “Coming in 0-3 and coming back, getting a divisional game, that’s huge. We’ve just got to build off this game.”

AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers insisted they might have been winless through three weeks, but they were far from hopeless. They stressed the process of finding an identity with franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger out for the season with an elbow injury would take time and a collective effort from all involved. An effort that looked an awful lot like what they put together during a 27-3 pounding of Cincinnati on Monday night. Mason Rudolph threw for 229 yards and two scores. Running back, part-time

With Pittsburgh’s running game going nowhere through three weeks, running backs coach Eddie Faulkner suggested to offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner that it might be time to dust off the wildcat. Samuels ran it frequently during his college career at N.C. State, and the Bengals (0-4) certainly looked caught off guard when Samuels lined up in the shotgun and started distributing the ball like a point guard. Sometimes he’d hand it off to Conner. Others he’d “throw” a “pop” pass to a teammate running in motion in front of him. Still others he opted to keep it himself, including on his third-quarter touchdown in which he strolled into the end zone after the Bengals bit on a fake handoff.

I have had a lot of anxiety over this. I am also hurt that we weren’t given the chance to reveal his past so he could be as transparent with my parents as he has been with me about it. Any advice? — ANXIOUS IN ARKANSAS

DEAR ABBY: I have been seeing a man for the last few months. His brother and my cousin have been dating for four years. He’s 35, and I’m 23. He is about to be divorced and has a record, but the last crime he committed was 10 years ago. If not for the fact that his brother is dating my cousin, I’d be much more skeptical. But my cousin has never had anything bad to say about him, and I’m confident if there were, she would tell me. My family is adamantly against the relationship. They say he’s too old for me, I should be more concerned about his criminal history, and no one they know has anything good to say about him. I’m conflicted about moving forward because I’m afraid of the rifts it would cause with my relatives.

DEAR ANXIOUS: Because you have been seeing this man for several months, long enough to develop serious feelings for him, you should have talked to your parents about his history before they heard it from others. Because they love you, their feelings are understandable. If there is any hope of changing their minds, you and your boyfriend should speak to them together so he can address their concerns.

Controversial wild horse plan headed to Senate floor By Scott Sonner Associated Press

RENO, Nev. — Congress is closer to approving a contentious wild horse initiative backed by national animal welfare groups and the livestock industry but condemned by leaders of the largest and oldest coalition of mustang advocates in the West. The Senate Appropriations Committee approved $35 million last week for the program supported by an unprecedented alliance including the Humane

Society of the United States, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and American Farm Bureau Federation. They say it would eliminate the threat of slaughter for thousands of free-roaming horses and shrink the size of herds primarily through expanded fertility controls on the range. Critics say it drops long-held opposition to the capture of mustangs across 10 western states and could allow for sterilization

of mares — a hot-button issue with horse protection advocates historically. “It’s a sweeping betrayal of America’s wild herds by the nation’s largest animal welfare groups,” Suzanne Roy, executive director of the American Wild Horse Campaign, said following Thursday’s vote. The Senate committee included a $35 million increase for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s wild horse and burro program as part of the $35.8 billion Interior Department appropriation

bill it approved on Thursday. It’s not clear when the full Senate will consider the measure. Then-Acting BLM Director Casey Hammond said in Idaho in July the Trump administration won’t pursue lethal measures such as euthanasia or selling horses for slaughter. Backers of the bill approved by the Senate panel said it provides added assurances the horses will be treated humanely. They had sought a $50 million increase in the BLM’s $80 million annual horse budget, arguing any boost

in spending on contraception and other population controls ultimately will save money as herds shrink. “This is a historic moment for our herds, containing the strongest language protecting wild horses and burros we have ever seen in an annual appropriations bill,” Matt Bershadker, president and CEO of the ASPCA, said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press on Friday. He said it increases “commitments to protect these animals from killing or sale to slaughter.”

Meet zippy His owner passed away and he was scheduled for euthanasia. With much consideration by the owner’s daughter, she surrendered him to KPAL Rescue and he is currently being fostered by the wonderful caring staff of Soldotna Animal Hospital. Zippy would love to be the only pet in the house. At nine years old he was obviously a lap cat. He had become a little skittish after being left outside for so long and so many changes in such a short amount of time, but he is quick with a purr and a snuggle. He does not do well around dogs. If you're interested in adopting Zippy, please read our pinned post on Facebook (@ kpalrescue) and download the Adoption Application at or email us at KPAL Rescue adult cats are fully vetted (vaccinated, microchipped, etc.) and spayed/ neutered; there will be an Adoption Fee of $75 to recoup some of these costs so that we can continue to help other animals in need. KPAL Rescue has an adoption process in place, our animals are NOT first come/first serve.
