Robbery suspects remain at large ANCHORAGE (AP) — Alaska troopers have released an alert seeking help in finding multiple men suspected of robbing a gas station at gunpoint. The Anchorage Daily News reports that Alaska State Troopers sent an alert Saturday after four young men stole about $100 from a Wasilla gas station. Authorities say the men held up two store employees with a handgun. There were no reports of injury. Authorities say the men are believed to be in their mid-teens to early 20s. Authorities say they fled the scene in a white Chevrolet or GMC truck heading north. Troopers ask that anyone with information about this case or the identities of the men reach out to authorities.

1 dies after plane skids off runway By Becky Bohrer Associated Press

One person died after a commuter airplane went off the end of a runway while landing at an airport in the remote Aleutian Islands fishing community of Unalaska, authorities said Friday. Alaska State Troopers identified the victim as David Allan Oltman, 38, of Wenatchee, Washington. The plane, operated by Peninsula Airways, or PenAir, left Anchorage around 3:15 p.m. Thursday with 42 people on board, including 39 passengers and three crew members, a statement from the company said. One passenger was a child under age 2, said Clint Johnson, chief of the Alaska region for the National Transportation Safety Board. The flight landed around 5:40 p.m. and went off the end of the runway. PenAir is owned by Ravn Air Group and said it is cooperating with federal investigators.

“On behalf of PenAir, Ravn Air Group and all our employees throughout the company, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and loved ones of our passenger who passed away,” Dave Pflieger, president of RavnAir Group, said in a statement. Johnson said a team of nine NTSB investigators was expected in Anchorage late Friday. Some members would remain in Anchorage while others were expected to travel to Unalaska early Saturday, he said. Additionally, an agency investigator from Alaska was expected to be on scene as the flight data and cockpit voice recorders were removed from the plane, he said. The city, in a statement, said responders arrived at the scene within five minutes of the crash. It said 11 people were taken a local clinic with injuries ranging from minor to critical. Law enforcement has secured the scene pending the arrival of NTSB investigators, the city said.


A commuter airplane crashed Thursday near the airport in Unalaska. Freelance photographer Jim Paulin says the crash at the Unalaska airport occurred Thursday after 5 p.m. Paulin says the Peninsula Airways flight from Anchorage to Dutch Harbor landed about 500 feet beyond the airport near the water.

The seventh and final event in the Drawdown: Book to Action Climate Series culminated in a project focusing on community composting. The series, hosted by Cook Inletkeeper and KenaiChange, has now hosted seven meetings over the last six months. Each meeting has used the book “Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming” as a jumping off point for community members to discuss and brainstorm local solutions to climate change. At their last meeting on Oct. 15, the group went over their top ideas for local solutions, including a solarize the central peninsula initiative, community composting, embracing carpooling technology, planting trees in public spaces, capturing methane gas from local landfills, an energy audit of borough buildings and other projects that seek to lower greenhouse gas emissions at the local level. “It sounds like a big task, but it’s really about making climate change — which seems unsolvable and daunting — into something we can actually take action to make our communities healthier and more vibrant and sustainable,” Kaitlin Vadla, Kenai regional director for Cook Inletkeeper said at the meeting.

Series on climate ends with compost By Victoria Petersen

By Lisa Mascaro, Andrew Taylor and Mary Clare Jalonick

WASHINGTON — The shifting White House explanation for President Donald Trump’s decision to withhold military aid from Ukraine drew alarm Friday from Republicans as the impeachment inquiry brought a new test of their alliance. Trump, in remarks at the White House, stood by his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, whose earlier comments undermined the administration’s defense in the impeachment probe.

The 2019 Kenai Peninsula Borough Comprehensive Plan final draft has been released and residents are calling on the assembly to maintain the plan’s recommendation for a climate action plan that includes local climate adaptation and mitigation measures. The comprehensive plan is for the systematic and organized development of the borough and is updated


to reflect changing conditions, trends, laws, regulations and policies, according to the ordinance asking the assembly to approve the 2019 comprehensive plan. The last Kenai Peninsula Borough Comprehensive Plan was updated in 2005. The social, economic and environmental conditions of the Kenai Peninsula Borough have changed over the past 14 years, the ordinance said. The comprehensive plan includes details on how climate change may

Man missing after spiritual quest to Hatcher Pass By Michelle Theriault Boots Anchorage Daily News

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — In August 2018, a solitary man walked 14 miles into a lonely valley on the western side of Hatcher Pass. He carried almost nothing: A backpack, 5 pounds of oatmeal. No rifle or bear spray. Vladimir Kostenko planned to stay at a tiny dry cabin for months. He was seeking no less than the meaning of life. For most of his 42 years, Kostenko had been on a spiritual quest to understand his place in the universe.

An immigrant from Russia living in a small town in Washington state, he had pursued an almost monk-life existence, fasting regularly, meditating for hours and reading widely on religion. “He’s just not like anybody I’ve ever met,” said his sister, Alla Kostenko. Vladimir had traveled the world looking for his purpose on Earth. The bearded, soft-spoken mechanic had lived in a Russian hippie commune and spent time following a charismatic evangelical preacher in Ukraine. But the cabin deep in the Purches Creek valley would prove to be his deepest, riskiest journey yet.

Vladimir was born in the town of Zelenokumsk, in the North Caucasus region of southern Russia. He grew up in a large, conservative Baptist family at a time when Christians were persecuted for their beliefs under the Soviet system, Alla said. Among the 13 siblings in the Kostenko family, Vladimir “was always the quiet one,” said Alla, who lives on a coffee farm in Hawaii. “He wouldn’t initiate anything. We’d be the ones to say, ‘Let’s go here, let’s play this game.’ He would follow and be quiet.” In 1999, the Kostenko family moved to the United States through a

program that allowed Christians fleeing religious persecution in Russia to immigrate. They settled in the small town of Walla Walla, Washington, a college and wine country town of about 30,000 people in the rural southeast corner of the state. Moving to the United States “was a dream for us,” Alla said. “We were all just amazed.” But some family members had an easier time adapting to American life than others. Alla, one of the youngest, was 15. She went quickly learned See QUEST, Page A2

English at her public high school. Vladimir was 22 and out of school. “I blended in a lot better,� Alla said. “For my older siblings, they took some ESL classes, but they still kind of lived and communicated in Russian.� As they grew older, Vladimir and some of the younger siblings in the family stopped attending the conservative church they’d been raised in. “We all went on a personal search for answers,� Alla said. “For understanding what spirituality is, what God is, individually.� None pursued it quite like Vladimir. In 2011, he went to live in a “Russian hippie community� near Moscow to see if he “could find meaning to the spiritual gifts he was given,� Alla said. He returned to Walla Walla, and several years later traveled to Ukraine. There he became interested in the teachings of a controversial charismatic Ukrainian evangelist named Vladimir Muntyan. Vladimir was unusually earnest about his quest to understand the mysteries of God, she said. He was also a bit of a loner. As he grew older his family wondered whether he wanted a wife or children. “He always said, I’d absolutely love to do that,� Alla said. “But if I have not figured out what I’m here for and what this is all about, I cannot bring another person into this.� In recent years, Vladimir had been living quietly on the property of a family friend in Walla Walla, fixing up old cars. He was an uncommonly talented mechanic, Alla said. Money meant little to him and he’d often tell people to pay him “whatever they wanted to pay.� God would provide, he figured. “He was always talking about how he wants to be useful,� Alla said. Suddenly, an opportunity to come to Alaska arrived. ‘Truly in the middle of nowhere’ Dmitry Kudryn, a family friend and successful entrepreneur in Wasilla, needed someone to drive a truck full of merchandise from the Lower 48 to Alaska. Kudryn is a charming selfmade millionaire and aspiring YouTube star who has dabbled in cellphone repair stores and who now owns Crave, a business that manufactures phone accessories, as well as a construction company. Kudryn is the oldest of 12, from a Ukrainian family that

also came to the United States as refugees fleeing both religious and political persecution. The decor of his office, in a new construction building just off the Parks Highway, features a framed copy of the U.S. Constitution and an American flag. The Kudryn and Kostenko families crossed paths in Walla Walla before Kudryn moved to Wasilla in 1999. They shared the experience of being large, Russian-speaking immigrant families in a small town in the rural Pacific Northwest, and they’d stayed in touch over the years. While Kudryn had not been particularly close with Vladimir himself, he was happy to welcome him to Alaska. Vladimir knew Kudryn owned a dry cabin in the Purches Creek valley, on the western side of Hatcher Pass near Willow. Getting to the 12-by-20-foot cabin requires a 14-mile hike from Hatcher Pass Road, over mountain passes. “It’s truly in the middle of nowhere,� Kudryn said. “It’s so quiet, no phones, nothing.� People mostly use the area for snowmachining in the winter, plus some mining, hunting, trapping and a little hiking in the summer, said Rudy Wittshirk, a longtime Willow resident who has extensively explored the area. But it is an especially remote corner of Hatcher Pass where few venture. “It’s a cliche, so I hate to say it, but that is a pretty rugged area,� Wittshirk said. Kudryn was open to letting his friend use the cabin. But a few things worried him. First, Vladimir only wanted to bring 5 pounds of oatmeal and no other food. Though the cabin was well-stocked with canned foods, Kudryn worried that the alreadythin Vladimir — 6’1 and 145 pounds — might not have enough to eat. Why not bring a few vegetables, he wondered. Vladimir also wouldn’t take a gun — or even bear spray. “That bothered me a little bit, I’ve lived here for 20 years so I kind of know what you probably should and shouldn’t do in the wilderness,� Kudryn said. But Vladimir was an adult, Kudryn figured. And he seemed to really want to go to the cabin. On Aug. 18, Vladimir took a taxi from Kudryn’s office in Wasilla to Hatcher Pass Road, to set out for the long hike. He wasn’t completely cut off: Vladimir carried an iPhone and external power bank with solar recharging function. At first, he stayed in touch by climbing high enough on a peak near the cabin to send text messages and photos. The first message Kudryn received showed Vladimir on the hike in, taking a timer selfportrait on the late-August

tundra. “Ascended the first mountain,â€? Vladimir wrote in Russian. He sent another: “Crossed the creek.â€? Purches Creek threaded the narrow valley, the mountain walls already turning gold and green. The cabin was barely visible, a dot. In late August and early September, Kudryn would receive intermittent text messages from the cabin, detailing Vladimir’s travails with a marauding ground squirrel that he eventually killed. Vladimir seemed to love being there. “This place is amazing, especially without the squirrel,â€? he texted. Kudryn asked if he had enough food. “There is enough food for three years,â€? Vladimir replied. “I’m on day six of fasting.â€? In September, some hunter friends stopped at the cabin. They left Vladimir with fresh provisions: olives, apples, honey, smoked salmon and fresh-baked bread and kvass, a Russian fermented drink. In text messages, Vladimir spoke of the cranberries and blueberries he was picking. He had boiled some down into jam. “I have no plans to leave,â€? he wrote. October came. Then November. No more text messages arrived from Vladimir. Kudryn began to worry about the cold, and Vladimir’s food supply. On Nov. 3, he and his brother, both pilots, decided to fly out to check on him. Kudryn decided to affix cameras to his plane and make a video for his YouTube channel Crave Life, which features Alaska outdoor adventures as well as Kudryn’s life as a traveling businessman. The video chronicles Kudryn shopping for and packing Home Depot buckets of carrots and bread for Vladimir. He called it “Alaska Rescue Mission by Air.â€? “I’ve got a friend who went to a very remote cabin ‌ on foot ‌ literally in the middle of nowhere in the mountains,â€? Kudryn said, narrating the video in YouTuber-style high drama. “I’m really, really concerned for him.â€? The Purches Creek valley was dusted with snow. The brothers flew low enough to see Vladimir emerge from the cabin. His arms are at his hips, standing on the porch. He looks like he’s wearing black sweatpants and a light jacket. Kudryn and his brother dropped the two buckets of food. From the porch, Vladimir gestured at them. He seemed to be saying that he was going to be heading out soon, Kudryn thought. After that, Kudryn traveled

to Asia for business. Still no Vladimir. When he got back, a 7.1 earthquake rocked Southcentral Alaska. He heard nothing from the cabin. Worry mounting, Kudryn and his brother decided to fly out again on Dec. 23. They knew Vladimir had no experience with Alaska winter. There was only six hours of daylight now, the pink lowhorizon solstice light barely creeping over the high mountain walls. It was cold in Wasilla, in the single digits. It was even more frigid in Hatcher Pass. Kudryn filmed again for another video. The valley was frosted in snow, the creek partly iced over. They looked for smoke from the cabin’s wood stove, any sign that Vladimir was inside. “There’s snow on the smokestack,� Kudryn said as they flew over. “That should be melted, if he was having a fire.� The porch was clean. There were tracks all around the house — but it wasn’t clear whether they were from a human or an animal. This time, no one emerged from the cabin. The place looked locked up. Maybe Vladimir was trying to walk out. They dropped more supply buckets, just in case. Afterward, Kudryn’s bravado fell away. He seemed shaken. “My next phone call is going to be to the Alaska State Troopers,� he said at the end of the video. A few days later, on Dec. 26, Kudryn decided he needed to go back to the cabin to see for himself if Vladimir was inside. He chartered a helicopter, landed and found the cabin had been meticulously sealed shut with a sheet of brown metal nailed over the door. He pried the nails off and entered, not knowing what he’d find inside. The cabin was in perfect order: Spices neatly stacked on the shelf. Plenty of firewood, a water container, bunk beds covered in blankets. Canned food. Hunting coats, outdoor gear. Empty buckets. A propane tank. Vladimir left no notes — just a Russian phrase written on a piece of wood. Alla thinks it says something like “frankincense aroma — do not burn.� Maybe he was using it as the old preachers did, to ward off bad spirits, she said. There was no sign of Vladimir. Kudryn tromped through the snow and spotted one of the orange buckets he had dropped by air days earlier. “MERRY CHRISTMAS,� he had written on the side. Now Christmas had come and gone. It sat in the snow

untouched. The tracks seen from the air on the last flight turned out to be from a moose. It seemed Vladimir had made a planned departure. But how long ago? And where was he now? Kudryn asked the helicopter pilot to fly the trail Vladimir would have taken to get back to the Hatcher Pass Road. From the air, it was a thin ribbon of white in a monochrome expanse of winter spruce trees and snow. It twisted and turned. It would be easy to get lost. Kudryn went back once more, this time with two Alaska State Troopers, by snowmachine. Again he filmed the expedition for his YouTube channel. They found a trap line and snowmachine trails. They posted MISSING signs on spruce trees. They found no trace of Vladimir. Kostenko was quietly listed as missing by the Alaska State Troopers, his wild-eyed photo added to a grid of more than 100 people who have disappeared in Alaska over decades. Troopers launched no large-scale organized search for Vladimir. “In cases where a person or persons has been reported overdue from, say, a hike, troopers normally have a timeline and direction of travel to follow up on,� said Ken Marsh, a spokesman for the Alaska State Troopers. “Scope of the search may depend upon how long the individual has been overdue; what trail, river, or general route of travel that person is likely to have taken; geography of the location, and weather conditions.� In Vladimir’s case, weeks had gone by since he’d last been seen, Marsh said. Snow had fallen, obscuring tracks or other clues. In short: Searchers had no idea where to look for him, Marsh said. Then came a confusing twist. The Alaska State Troopers initially told the Kostenko family that a search of airline records showed a person named Vladimir Kostenko flew out of Alaska, and later on to Hawaii, on Dec. 17, according to Alla. That seemed a bizarre twist — “strange and inconsiderate� that her brother might leave the Alaska wilderness without advising anyone of his plans. Even stranger that he would travel to her own state and not try to see her. But it was also a kernel of hope that Vladimir was alive somewhere. For months Alla looked at homeless people on the streets of Hawaii and tried to spot her brother among them. She wondered if he would wander up her

driveway some morning. “We were under the impression that that’s what happened to him so we weren’t looking for him, for half a year,� she said. It wasn’t until May that Alla, in another conversation with the troopers, learned that there had been a miscommunication. Nobody named Vladimir Kostenko had flown out of Alaska, they said. But in early May, police in Oregon stopped a Vladimir Kostenko boarding a flight at Portland International Airport to see if he was the missing person. He was not. The family is now reckoning with the idea that Vladimir never left Alaska and may not have made it out of the valley. It has now been nearly a year since Vladimir Kostenko was seen alive. Certainty, even of his death, would be a balm for their grief, Alla said. The hardest thing is not knowing. Waiting for answers Vladimir’s cellphone last pinged on Dec. 3. Perhaps that’s the day he decided to hike out. There are so many things that could have gone wrong. “Maybe he was not too strong,� Alla said. “He was fasting. It was a long hike and a short day and he did not have winter clothing.� Kudryn says he wonders if Vladimir was lulled into a false sense of security by his easy journey to get to the cabin, in the still-full blush of summer. “Never underestimate nature,� he said. “It has absolutely no mercy.� Wittshirk, the longtime Willow resident, said an “endless� list of misfortunes could have derailed a 14-mile dead-of-winter hike in limited daylight, especially for someone without much Alaska wilderness travel experience. “I go out very often into that kind of country — backpack, camp — and you gotta be lucky or know what you’re doing or both,� he said. “You gotta be really careful, oh my God — there’s a thousand ways you can buy it out there.� No one knows what Vladimir went through in his later days at the cabin. Was he happy, lost in a reverie of prayer? Was he scared? Was he weak from fasting? What did the 7.1 earthquake feel like in the valley? Did it seem like a sign from God? His sister can only imagine that those months in the Purches Creek valley may have felt like the answer to the questions her brother had devoted his life to. “If that was how his life was supposed to end — I think he was deeply peaceful,� she said. “I am sure of that.�

numerous ideas for solutions have come out of the series. At the Oct. 15 meeting, community members voted for the project they wanted to tackle first. Community composting won the crowd. The event’s organizers discussed where composting is already happening at a local level, with waste

from Salmonfest and Kenai Riverfest being composted along with wood chips and salmon carcasses every summer. Event participants said restaurant owners who typically toss large amounts of food could get involved. The group will set meeting times to begin organizing a plan forward.

Planning department staff and the comprehensive plan consulting team have been working on the comprehensive plan document for over

two years, a Sept. 26 memo from planner Bruce Wall to Mayor Charlie Pierce said. Throughout 2017, over 2,000 residents shared their ideas with the planning commission and comprehensive plan consulting team, Agnew Beck, who was hired in February 2017 team to assist with the project, the memo said. The team conducted more than 50 interviews and small group discussions with local organizations, they conducted a random sample telephone survey of 600 households within the borough and had a booth or other presence at 20 public events in the borough, the memo said. On Sept. 23, the planning commission approved the comprehensive plan document and recommended its adoption by the assembly. At the Nov. 5 assembly meeting, there will be a public hearing and the assembly will vote on the plan’s approval.

The cities of Seldovia and Soldotna also have resolutions on their city council agendas supporting the inclusion of a climate action plan in the borough’s comprehensive plan. “While not everyone agrees on the causes of climate change, there is no doubt that Alaska is seeing significant and accelerating changes in temperatures, precipitation, storm events and Habitats,” the comprehensive plan said. “More work is needed to assess the specific nature and anticipated pace and intensity of these changes, and possible adaptation strategies.

Straw From Page A1

Speaking Thursday at a news conference, Mulvaney essentially acknowledged a quid pro quo with Ukraine that Trump has long denied, saying U.S. aid was withheld from Kyiv to push for an investigation of the Democratic National Committee and the 2016 election. He later clarified his remarks. Trump appeared satisfied with Mulvaney’s clarification and the president dismissed the entire House inquiry as “a terrible witch hunt. This is so bad for our country.” But former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who ran against Trump in the 2016 Republican primary, said he now supports impeaching the president. Mulvaney’s admission, he said, was the “final straw.” ”The last 24 hours has really forced me to review all of this,” Kasich said on CNN. In Congress, at least one Republican, Rep. Francis Rooney of Florida, spoke out publicly, telling reporters that he and others were concerned by Mulvaney’s remarks. Rooney said he’s open to considering all sides in the impeachment inquiry. He also said Mulvaney’s comments cannot simply undone by a follow-up statement. “It’s not an Etch-A-Sketch,” said Rooney, a former ambassador to the Holy See under President George W. Bush. “The only thing I can assume is, he meant what he had to say — that there was a quid pro quo on this stuff,” he said. The tumult over

The film will be followed by refreshments and a short discussion updating what is happening in Alaska regarding financing of political campaigns.This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV ( Sponsored by Move to Amend and Cook InletKeeper.

Mulvaney’s remarks capped a momentous week in the impeachment investigation as the admission, from highest levels of the administration, undercut the White House defense and pushed more evidence into the inquiry. GOP leaders tried to contain the fallout. But four weeks into the inquiry, the events around Trump’s interaction with the Ukraine president, which are at the heart of impeachment, have upended Washington. A beloved House chairman, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., a leading figure in the investigation, died amid ongoing health challenges. The Energy Secretary, Rick Perry, who has been caught up in the probe, announced his resignation. On Friday, the Energy Department sent a letter to House committee chairs saying it would not comply with a subpoena for documents and communications. The march toward an impeachment vote now seems all but inevitable, so much so that the highest-ranking Republican, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, privately told his GOP colleagues this week to expect action in the House by Thanksgiving with a Senate trial by Christmas. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has given no timeline for conclusion but wants the inquiry completed “expeditiously.” She said Thursday that facts of the investigation will determine next steps. “The timeline will depend on the truth line,” she told reporters. This week’s hours of backto-back closed-door hearings from diplomats and former top aides appeared to be providing investigators with a remarkably consistent account of the run-up and aftermath of Trump’s call with Ukraine President Volodymy Zelenskiy. In that July call, Trump asked the newly elected Zelenskiy for a “favor” in investigating the Democratic National Committee’s email situation, which was central to the 2016 election, as well as a Ukraine gas company, Burisma, linked to the family of Trump’s 2020

Democratic rival, Joe Biden, according to a rough transcript of the phone conversation released by the White House. Republican leaders tried to align with Trump Friday, amid their own mixed messages as House Democrats, who already issued a subpoena to Mulvaney for documents, now want to hear directly from him. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the House GOP leader, cited Mulvaney’s clarification as evidence that there was no quid pro quo. He said witnesses have also testified similarly behind closed doors in the impeachment inquiry. “We’ve been very clear,” McCarthy said. “There was no quid pro quo.” Lawmakers involved in the three House committees conducting the investigation want to hear more next week, which promises another packed schedule of witnesses appearing behind closed doors. Republicans want the interviews made open to the public, including releasing transcripts. Democrats in the probe being led by Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the Intelligence Committee, are keeping the proceedings closed for now, partly to prevent witnesses from comparing notes. Three House committees investigating impeachment have tentatively scheduled several closed-door interviews next week, including one with Bill Taylor, the current top official at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine. Taylor’s interview, scheduled for Tuesday, is significant because he was among the diplomats on a text message string during the time around the July phone call. He raised a red flag and said it was “crazy” to withhold the military aid for a political investigation. It’s unclear whether all the witnesses will appear, given that the White House is opposing the inquiry and trying to block officials from testifying. The schedule includes a mix of State Department officials and White House aides.

What others say

Poor process for impeachment P

oor process for impeachment The House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Trump has broken so dramatically with precedent that some wonder whether it constitutes an impeachment effort at all. In the past, such proceedings — against Presidents Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton — were treated with solemnity and regard for the American people of both parties. They were initiated by a vote of the full House of Representatives, recognizing that, under the Constitution, the House impeaches, not just the political faction in control. Since overruling the votes of the people for president is wrenching and divisive, it was always regarded as a very big deal. As the Judiciary Committee noted in its Oct. 7, 1998 report to the House regarding the impeachment of President Clinton, after an independent counsel found he had committed perjury and obstructed justice: “Because the issue of impeachment is of such overwhelming importance, the Committee decided that it must receive the authorization from the full House before proceeding on any further course of action. Because impeachment is delegated solely to the House of Representatives by the Constitution, the full House of Representatives should be involved in critical decision making regarding various stages of impeachment.” In addition, the committee made clear that the president had rights in that process: “The President and his counsel shall be invited to attend all executive session and open committee hearings. The President’s counsel may cross examine witnesses. The President’s counsel may make objections regarding the pertinency of evidence. The President’s counsel shall be invited to suggest that the Committee receive additional evidence. Lastly, the President or the President’s counsel shall be invited to respond to the evidence adduced by the Committee at an appropriate time. The provisions will ensure that the impeachment inquiry is fair to the President.” Furthermore, members of the president’s party had power to issue subpoenas for witnesses. Due process, including the right to a defense and to confront one’s accusers, is the very essence of American justice. The process under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been radically different. She has refused to hold a vote. A committee is holding secret meetings in the basement of the Capitol, bringing in witnesses selected only by Democrats. Neither the American people nor the president’s counsel is permitted to attend. Selective leaks are being issued. In some ways, the process has more the air of a Soviet procedure than an American one. We endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016 and find President Trump odious and his behavior unfit for his high office. But, in opposing him, it is important that we not dispense with American ideals or undermine our republic. (For similar reasons, we oppose junking the Electoral College or packing the Supreme Court.) We will need our republic after Mr. Trump is gone, which could be very soon, after an election in less than 13 months. We don’t want one-sided tactics used against future presidents to overturn the will of voters. While the daily drumbeat of impeachment in the news may be driving down Mr. Trump’s poll numbers — polls differ — it remains unlikely a Republican Senate will provide the two-thirds vote to remove him from office. We fear that this process will end up solidifying support for Mr. Trump in his base while turning off moderate voters, weakening rather than strengthening Democratic prospects in 2020. But if the House must impeach, it should follow established precedent. — The Providence Journal, Oct. 17

Applying restorative justice to political warfare

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



ollowing Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate, candidates and viewers complained that the moderators failed to ask questions about immigration, climate change and LGBTQ rights while closing with one about the Ellen DeGeneres/ President George W. Bush friendship controversy. However, overcoming the ideological differences as they did may be an imperative to solving our most pressing problems. The story began with the photos and videos of DeGeneres and Bush sitting together at a Dallas Cowboys football game two weeks ago. The viral images led to criticisms from some of her fans. Then came her defense that friendship and kindness should transcend political differences. “Sorry, until George W. Bush is brought to justice for the crimes of the Iraq War,” actor Mark Ruffalo tweeted, “we can’t even begin to talk about kindness.” Along with that judgment, he included a quote from a Hollywood writer for Vanity Fair that said DeGeneres’s “imagined utopia” about kindness “seems increasingly out of touch with reality.” Brandt Jean doesn’t think so. He’s the brother of Botham Jean, the man killed by Amber Guyger, an off-duty Dallas police officer who shot him after mistakenly entering his apartment. She was convicted of murder earlier this month. “If you truly are sorry,” Brandt Jean said after the judge sentenced her to 10 years in prison, “I know I can speak for myself, I forgive you.” He then asked for and got permission from the

judge to give Guyger a hug. “Can Forgiveness Play a Role in Criminal Justice?” was the title of a 2013 story by freelance journalist Paul Tullis. It’s about how 19-year-old Conor McBride shot and killed Margaret Grosmaire, who had been his girlfriend for three years. McBride turned himself in immediately after pulling the trigger. Charged with first-degree murder, he faced either a mandatory life sentence or the death penalty. Margaret’s parents felt compelled to forgive McBride. “Before this happened, I loved Conor,” Kate Grosmaire told Tullis. “Conor owed us a debt he could never repay. And releasing him from that debt would release us from expecting that anything in this world could satisfy us.” Kate Grosmaire tells the full story in her 2016 book titled “Forgiving My Daughter’s Killer: A True Story of Loss, Faith, and Unexpected Grace.” In the months that followed the murder, the couple engaged in a process known as restorative justice. Working with McBride, his parents, the chaplain in the Florida prison system, a director from National Council on Crime and Delinquency in Oakland, and the prosecutor’s office, they helped reduce his sentence to 20 years. Restorative justice focuses on healing and repairing the harm caused by a criminal act rather than punishment of the offender. To be effective, offenders must take responsibility for their actions. That allows cooperation and mediation to preempt the normally adversarial prosecution and defense.

Even though it’s extremely rare in cases of violent crime, the concepts of Restorative Justice could be applied to President Bush’s disastrous decision to invade Iraq. As a quintessential liberal approach to crime, it holds more promise than the unrealistic expectation that any elected official will be held accountable for the death and destruction the war unleashed. And it might give those who opposed the war a more prominent and respected voice on future matters of war and peace. Like most Americans, I can’t speak for anyone who lost a loved one there. But seeking healing instead of judgment and punishment would invite Bush and others to accept responsibility for their decision and honestly reflect on the horrors of the war. To begin though, as in the Grosmaire case, forgiveness must be initiated by the those who believe the war was a crime. “He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love” Martin Luther King Jr. said in his “Strength to Love” sermons. And as Sen. Cory Booker, D-New Jersey, said in response to the question about the friendship between Bush and DeGeneres, “You cannot love your country unless you love your fellow countrymen and women.” Extending Booker’s point, a barrier to meaningful, lasting progress on all fronts is the entrenched partisan warfare that divides the country. And we can’t end that without embracing King’s message and forgiving each other for the different ways in which we view our world.

guest editorial | Danielle Meeker

Ocean acidification needs less talk, more action


hen it comes to ocean health, Alaska’s congressional representatives understand the threat that ocean acidification poses to our fisheries, coastal communities, and state economy. According to U.S. Rep. Don Young, “ocean acidification is an ongoing threat that must be tackled head-on if we are to ensure a bright economic future for Alaskans, whose jobs depend on healthy oceans.” During a visit to Kodiak, Sen. Dan Sullivan stressed the importance of research, saying “on the science side we’re trying to make sure that ocean acidification and other issues that impact the fisheries are completely and fully funded. I’m all over that.” Sen. Lisa Murkowski has gone even further to address the issue, twice introducing legislation to conduct vulnerability assessments in coastal communities that depend on ocean resources. “If we don’t develop the tools we need to assess and respond, our coastal communities will be hit the hardest by ocean acidification. So much of Alaska’s culture and economy thrive on the many resources that come from the ocean,” she said. “And the impacts are far reaching — from the potential for fishermen to see a decline in catch, resulting in a loss of revenue and jobs to entire communities whose livelihood relies on subsistence fishing. The reality is our ocean is becoming more acidic and will impact our ocean resources, coastal communities, and beyond if we don’t take proactive steps to address it.” These statements are supported by scientific evidence, which indicates that the combination of rising

ocean temperatures and increasingly acidic conditions is serving a one-two punch to Alaska’s marine and coastal environments. Ocean acidification is caused by excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, some of which — about 30% — dissolves into ocean waters, lowering their pH and making them more acidic. This change in ocean chemistry can harm creatures such as oysters, crabs and corals by depleting the calcium carbonate they need to build their shells and skeletons. Fish are also affected by ocean acidification, which decreases their ability to detect predators. These impacts to marine life have ripple effects throughout the food web, threatening the health of entire ecosystems. Southeast Alaska is likely to experience ocean acidification sooner than many other parts of the world, due to our cold, glacier-fed waters, which are naturally more acidic. As a result, our coastal communities that depend on marine resources for subsistence, cultural purposes and economic value are especially vulnerable. If not addressed, ocean acidification could harm Alaska’s commercial fishing industry, which provides over half of the nation’s seafood harvest and contributes over 30,000 full-time equivalent jobs. Our representatives are right to recognize that ocean acidification is a serious threat to Alaska’s social, cultural and economic well-being, and their support for research should be applauded. However, studying the issue isn’t going to change the science: ocean acidification is caused

by greenhouse gas emissions. Until our leadership comes to grips with this fact, they are exacerbating the problem. With our small population and already limited infrastructure, Alaskans cannot make a meaningful dent in our country’s carbon footprint on our own. We should, however, accept our share of the collective global responsibility to reduce carbon emissions to avoid the worst consequences of climate change, which is now considered a major problem or crisis by nearly 80% of Americans. As our federal and state administrations turn their back on this responsibility, it is up to our congressional leadership to safeguard Alaska’s future by driving policies that give us the best chance of mitigating and adapting to unprecedented change. Guided by sustainability principles, these measures should include energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions, as well as improved response to climate-related disruptions such as erosion, permafrost thaw and fisheries disasters. From proposed tax incentives for improved energy storage to a plan to power the U.S. on 100% clean energy by 2050, there are currently numerous opportunities for them to support these critical policies. Ocean acidification is just one of a myriad of challenges created by our reliance on fossil fuels, but it is one that has caught the attention of our representatives. Now is the time for Young, Sullivan and Murkowski to confront the root cause of the issue and demonstrate their commitment to protecting Alaska.

Monitoring raises privacy concerns Associated Press

JUNEAU — An Alaska school district has introduced a new computer monitoring program prompting concerns over student privacy and data collection. The Juneau School District installed and launched the Bark program Sept. 13, Juneau Empire reported . An email was sent Sept. 15 with initial details and that more information would be provided to students, parents, staff and board members. The software monitors for content deemed harmful including school shooters, self-harm, pornography and cyberbullying, school

district officials said. The district sent a second email this week to address concerns after a school meeting Oct. 8, district representatives said. Superintendent Bridget Weiss also sat down with students Friday to talk about the program and hear any concerns and comments. There is no opt-out option, which some students said infringes on their rights. Some parents shared concerns about who was viewing the system’s alerts and data. School officials said the software is intended to monitor the words students use on school computers, flag potential harms and send alerts to officials.

K-Beach Elementary Mrs. Baker’s 4th graders took apart old radios to see how they work. They were creating text to self-connections with the main character from their last readaloud, Song for a Whale. Then, they used the parts from their radios and recycled materials they collected to build robots. Next, they will start their “how to” writing unit by describing how to take apart a radio and use its parts to create something new. Mr. Daniels’s class collected bug data from their last Slikok Creek trip. They took the data back to class and graphed the results. Finally, they analyzed the results and made decisions based on the data. They concluded that Slikok creek is healthy, but they want to keep collecting data to make sure their conclusion is correct. Also in science, Mr. Daniels is challenging engineering teams to design, build, and test Rube Goldberg machines. A Rube Goldberg machine transfers energy from one object to another in a fun and entertaining manner. It’s similar to toppling dominoes in a long row. The class learns about energy transfer and has fun in the process. Four K-Beach teams participated in the KPBSD Mind AMazes competition last Saturday, October 12. There were 43 teams competing. The sixth grade team of Ethan Anders, Spencer Dahlman, and Nick Veh WON the spontaneous problem, and were 6th place overall!! The fifth grade team of Dwight Brown, Elle Maufrais, and Presley Novak were 4th place overall! The fifth grade team of Caroline Carpik, Jacob Lowry, and Kate Medina were 10th place overall, and the fourth grade team of Noah Crabtree, Quinn Cothran, Adella Huhtagaard, and Elijah Pancoast also participated. Congratulations!

Chicago strike: Day off for some, emergency for others By Kathleen Foody and Don Babwin Associated Press

CHICAGO — Chicago parents leaned on family, friends and community groups as 25,000 teachers in the nation’s third-largest school district went on strike this past week, canceling classes for more than 300,000 kids. For some families, the Chicago Teachers Union walkout meant a day off and a bit of inconvenience for parents juggling work schedules. For the city’s most vulnerable families, though, the strike triggered a hasty search for a solution to help kids and let their parents make it to work. Both Mayor Lori Lightfoot and union leaders said negotiators have several major disputes to resolve, including pay and benefits, class size, and school staffing. Classes were canceled Thursday and Friday, and it is not clear when the first major walkout since 2012 by the city’s teachers will end. The two sides were meeting Saturday. The uncertainty of her five kids being out of school has weighed on

Antenisha Dale. When she walked into a Salvation Army community center on the city’s West Side Friday morning, Dale’s eyes widened when she learned they could all stay for the day, for no charge. The 29-year-old took off from her job at a grocery store deli counter on Thursday, forgoing a day’s pay when every dollar is essential for her family. Finding an affordable place for her kids to go if a strike drags on “takes a weight off my shoulders,” Dale said. Striking teachers argue that students and families in similar situations are the motivation behind their “social justice” agenda, not their own pay or benefits. They’re demanding smaller class sizes and more resources for schools, including nurses and social workers, written into the contract along with ways to enforce those changes. “What we really want is an improvement in our working conditions, which are the learning conditions for our students,” CTU President Jesse Sharkey said Friday. City and district officials, though, have called their offer of a 16% salary increase over five years for

teachers “historic.” Meeting all of teachers’ demands including a 5% salary increase for three years would cost more than $2.5 billion each year, an amount the district cannot afford, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has said. “CPS is not flush with cash,” Lightfoot said Friday, noting the district’s reliance on loans in its latest budget plan. Chicago Public Schools’ buildings remained open on regular schedules, staffed by principals and nonunion employees and prepared to provide students with breakfast and lunch. But the schools staffed by makeshift crews didn’t seem popular with parents. The district reported about 7,500 students showed up on the strike’s first day. On the city’s North Side on Friday, a few parents opted to bring their kids to a neighborhood YMCA rather than nearby schools. Samantha Gutierrez said her daughter preferred the YMCA where she goes regularly in contrast to the school now staffed by people she doesn’t know well. “I didn’t feel comfortable sending

her to a building full of strangers,” said Gutierrez, 25, an orthodontist assistant. “And I think she would feel a little intimidated there. She said she wanted to go to the Y where she knows kids.” Ira Cox worked out at the YMCA

Friday morning before heading home to spend the day with his 7-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy. Cox said he sent his children to their school on Thursday while he worked but said it felt like “crossing a picket line.”

Lost Pacific Crest Trail hiker rescued in Oregon snowstorm By Andrew Selsky Associated Press

SALEM, Ore. — Robert Campbell was thoroughly soaked, shivering, his wet sleeping bag covering him in the only shelter he could find — a pit toilet in a closed campground — after getting lost in a snowstorm in Oregon while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. Campbell was saved on Friday by a search team from the local sheriff’s department, who found his footprints in the snow. Heavy snow was forecast through Saturday evening in the Cascade Range. “I really think I owe them my life because … I couldn’t have made it another night. My sleeping bag and tent are just completely soaked and probably ruined and I have no

dry clothes,” Campbell said from a motel Friday night in Detroit, Oregon. His voice hoarse, he noted there were blue spots on one foot and his toenails were blue. Campbell, a native of the Philadelphia area, started hiking the famed Pacific Crest Trail on the U.S.-Mexican border on May 4, determined to make it all the way to the other end, on the Canadian border, 2,650 miles (4,265 kilometers) away. Last year, he hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine, he said. Those who walk the entire distance of these multi-state trails are called thru-hikers. Campbell’s troubles began Wednesday night. Snow was falling, the first winter storm of the season. He stayed awake all night, punching the interior tent walls to knock the

Today in History Today is Sunday, Oct. 20, the 293rd day of 2019. There are 72 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 20, 2011, Moammar Gadhafi, 69, Libya’s dictator for 42 years, was killed as revolutionary fighters overwhelmed his hometown of Sirte (SURT) and captured the last major bastion of resistance two months after his regime fell. On this date: In 1803, the U.S. Senate ratified the Louisiana Purchase. In 1944, during World War II, Gen. Douglas MacArthur stepped ashore at Leyte (LAY’-tee) in the Philippines, 2 1/2 years after saying, “I shall return.” In 1947, the House Un-American Activities Committee opened hearings into alleged Communist influence and infiltration in the U.S. motion picture industry. In 1967, a jury in Meridian, Mississippi, convicted seven men of violating the civil rights of slain civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner; the seven received prison terms ranging from 3 to 10 years. In 1973, in the so-called “Saturday Night Massacre,” special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox was dismissed and Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William B. Ruckelshaus resigned. In 1976, 78 people were killed when the Norwegian tanker Frosta rammed the commuter ferry George Prince on the Mississippi River near New Orleans. In 1977, three members of the rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd, including lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, were killed along with three others in the crash of a chartered plane near McComb, Mississippi. In 1986, the government of Nicaragua formally charged captured American mercenary Eugene Hasenfus with several crimes, including terrorism. (Although convicted and sentenced to prison, Hasenfus was pardoned and released by Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.) In 1990, three members of the rap group 2 Live Crew were acquitted by a jury in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., of violating obscenity laws with an adults-only concert in nearby Hollywood the previous June. In 1999, the government laid out new rules to protect children’s privacy on the Internet and to shield them from commercial e-mail. Elizabeth Dole abandoned her Republican bid to be America’s first woman president. In 2001, officials announced that anthrax had been discovered in a House postal facility on Capitol Hill. In 2004, A U.S. Army staff sergeant, Ivan “Chip” Frederick, pleaded guilty to abusing Iraqi detainees at Abu Ghraib prison. (Frederick was sentenced to eight years in prison; he was paroled in 2007.) Ten years ago: Ignoring appeals by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and even rock star Sting, Iran sentenced an Iranian-American academic, Kian Tajbakhsh (KEE’-ahn tahj-BAHKSH’), to 12 years in prison for his alleged role in anti-government protests. Afghanistan’s election commission ordered a runoff in the disputed presidential poll. (The runoff was later canceled, and President Hamid Karzai proclaimed the winner.) Five years ago: The White House said former Nazis should not have been collecting Social Security benefits as they aged overseas; an Associated Press investigation had revealed that millions of dollars had been paid to war-crimes suspects and former SS guards who’d been forced out of the United States. New York’s Metropolitan Opera opened “The Death of Klinghoffer” amid protests that the work glorified Palestinian terrorists. Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, 82, died in Kent, Connecticut. One year ago: Saudi Arabia announced that journalist Jamal Khashoggi (jah-MAHL’ khahr-SHOHK’-jee) had been killed in Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul; there was immediate international skepticism over the Saudi account that Khashoggi had died during a “fistfight.” President Donald Trump said the U.S. would pull out of a landmark arms control agreement with the former Soviet Union; he said Russia was violating the pact and that it was keeping the U.S. from developing new weapons. The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series to advance to a World Series matchup against the Boston Red Sox. Today’s Birthdays: Japan’s Empress Michiko is 85. Rockabilly singer Wanda Jackson is 82. Former actress Rev. Mother Dolores Hart is 81. Actor William “Rusty” Russ is 69. Actress Melanie Mayron is 67. Retired MLB All-Star Keith Hernandez is 66. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., is 64. Movie director Danny Boyle is 63. Former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is 62. Actor Viggo Mortensen is 61.

accumulating snow off. As he hiked on Thursday, the snow buried the trail. A smartphone app that was supposed to show the way didn’t help. Straying miles off the trail and into a boulder field, he stepped into a crack hidden in the snow, trapping his foot. He struggled for five minutes and had to unlace his shoe before he could free himself, Campbell said. Many take up the challenge to hike the PCT. Cheryl Strayed was one. She wrote a book, “Wild,” about her adventure that was made into a movie starring Reese Witherspoon. “Sometimes it seemed that the Pacific Crest Trail was one long mountain I was ascending,” Strayed wrote. “At times I almost wept with the relentlessness of it, my muscles and lungs searing with the effort.”

Hikers have a strong sense of camaraderie. The Trek website shows thru-hikers triumphantly standing on a wooden sign marking the trail’s northern terminus. Some perish making the attempt. In 2017, heavy snowfall made conditions treacherous. The body of Chaocui Wang, who had quit her job in Shanghai, China, to hike the trail, was found in a creek made swift by melting snowpack. Thruhiker Rika Moria, of Osaka Japan, was found dead in a river. Hiker Marvin Novo, of Turlock, California, died from apparent heat-related causes. In February, another hiker died after falling on ice. Hiker Finn Bastian, of Preetz, Germany, was killed this year by a falling tree. Campbell, scared after being

temporarily trapped and realizing he needing help, called 911 on Thursday and said he was lost. Then the line dropped. There was no phone signal. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office sent out a search and rescue team, putting out a notice saying “the area of focus is very expansive and there is limited information available.” Campbell, meanwhile, stumbled into the campground. Tire tracks gave hope that some lingering vacationers might be present, but the place was empty. Cold, wet and exhausted, he ducked into a pit toilet, the only available shelter. On Friday afternoon, searchers drove by the campground and found his footprints. “They just went way above and beyond. I’m just eternally grateful,” Campbell said.

Nestor heads into Georgia after tornados damage Florida TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Nestor rushed into Georgia on Saturday as a post-tropical cyclone after the former tropical storm spawned a tornado that damaged homes and a school in central Florida but spared an area of the Florida Panhandle devastated one year ago by Hurricane Michael. The storm made landfall on St. Vincent Island, a nature preserve just off Florida’s northern Gulf Coast in a lightly populated area of the state, the National Hurricane Center said. Nestor is now expected to bring 1 to 3 inches of rain to inland areas as it moves northeast across Georgia and then heads Sunday into the Carolinas before exiting into the Atlantic Ocean. All tropical storm and surge warnings had been canceled by Saturday afternoon. The storm, however, spun off at least three tornadoes in Florida as it moved north through the Gulf that caused damage. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said several homes were damaged and Kathleen Middle School had a large section of its roof torn off when the tornado hit late Friday near

Lakeland, about an hour’s drive southwest of Orlando.

PG&E warns of 10 years of power shut-offs California residents face up to 10 years of widespread, precautionary forced power shut-offs until Pacific Gas & Electric Corp., the bankrupt utility giant, will be able to prevent its power transmission lines from sparking fires, the company’s top official said. The sobering projection came from company Chief Executive William D. Johnson at an emergency meeting Friday of the California Public Utilities Commission in San Francisco. While the need for widespread shutdowns should lessen every year, Johnson told commissioners, “I think this is probably a 10-year timeline to get to a point where it’s really ratcheted down significantly.” Between June and early October, PG&E carried out four power shut-offs. The largest — and most criticized — was from Oct. 9 through Oct. 12, affecting 738,000 customers in 35 counties radiating out from the Sacramento area. Food spoiled, traffic signals died, cellphones faded out. Schools and businesses came to a standstill and frustrations grew into concerns over safety as hospitals switched to emergency

Bernie Sanders returns to the campaign trail LONG ISLAND CITY, New York — Bernie Sanders leaped back onto the campaign trail Saturday with a rowdy political rally aimed at reassuring supporters unnerved by the 78-yearold’s recent heart attack -- and with a lot of encouragement from an unexpected place. The candidate competing with Sanders to lock down the Democratic Party’s most progressive voters, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, is eager for the Vermont senator to continue his pursuit of the presidency. The prominence of their shared agenda in this race is amplified, officials from both campaigns say, by them being in it together for the distance. Saturday’s event, with a crowd estimated by the Sanders campaign at more than 25,000 people, suggested they will. Sanders exhibited a burst of resilience before the large crowd at a waterfront park here, unleashing on the rich, corporations and establishment Democrats in a speech that extended for an hour. — From Clarion news services

Turkey wants Syrian forces to clear out for resettlement By Karl Ritter and Sarah el Deeb Associated Press

ISTANBUL — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants Syrian government forces to move out of areas near the Turkish border so he can resettle up to 2 million refugees there, his spokesman told The Associated Press on Saturday. The request will top Erdogan’s talks next week with Syria’s ally, Russian President Vladimir Putin. Arrangements along the SyrianTurkish border were thrown into disarray after the U.S. pulled its troops out of the area, opening the door to Turkey’s invasion aiming to drive out Kurdish-led fighters it considers terrorists. Abandoned by their American allies, the Kurds — with Russia’s mediation — invited Damascus to send troops into northeastern Syria as protection from Turkish forces. That has complicated Turkey’s plan to create a “safe zone” along the border, where it can resettle Syrian refugees now in Turkey.

Most of those refugees fled Syria’s government. Erdogan’s spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin said Ankara does not want either Syrian forces nor Kurdish fighters in the border area because refugees would not go back to areas under their control. Turkey has said it wants to oversee that area. “This is one of the topics that we will discuss with the Russians, because, again, we are not going to force any refugees to go to anywhere they don’t want to go,” he said. “We want to create conditions that will be suitable for them to return where they will feel safe.” Turkey has taken in about 3.6 million Syrians fleeing the conflict in their homeland but now wants most of them to return. So far, very few have returned to an enclave Turkey already took over and controls since 2017. Under an agreement made by the U.S. and Turkey Thursday, a five-day cease-fire has been in place. Turkey expects the Kurdish fighters to pull back from a border area.

A senior Syrian Kurdish official acknowledged for the first time that the Kurdish-led forces agreed to the pull-back, stating that his forces will move 30-kilometer (19 miles) south of the border. Redur Khalil, a senior Syrian Democratic Forces official, told the AP that the withdrawal will take place once Turkey allows the Kurdish-led force to evacuate its fighters and civilians from Ras al-Ayn, a border town under siege by Turkish-backed forces. He said that Kurdish-led force was preparing plans to conduct that evacuation on Sunday, if there are no further delays. Khalil said Kurdish-led fighters would pull back from a 75-mile stretch along the border from Ras al-Ayn to Tal Abyad, moving past the international highway. “We are only committed to the U.S. version not the Turkish one,” Khalil said. A previous agreement between the U.S. and Turkey over a “safe zone” along the Syria-Turkish border floundered over the

diverging definitions of the area. Erdogan has said the Kurdish fighters must withdraw from a far larger length of the border from the Euphrates River to the Iraqi border — more than 440 kilometers — or else the Turkish offensive will

resume on Tuesday. But U.S. officials say the agreement pertains to the smaller section between the two towns. Kalin confirmed that is the area affected by the pause in fighting, but said Turkey still wants the larger zone.

UK’s Johnson asks for Brexit delay, but argues against it By Jill Lawless and Raf Casert Associated Press

LONDON — Prime Minister Boris Johnson grudgingly asked the European Union late Saturday to delay Brexit after the British Parliament postponed a decision on whether to back his divorce deal. But the defiant Johnson also made clear that he personally opposed delaying the U.K.’s exit, scheduled for Oct. 31. A law passed by Parliament last month set a late-night deadline for the government to send a letter asking the EU for a three-month postponement if lawmakers had not approved an agreement with the

bloc by Saturday. An hour before the deadline, European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: “The extension request has just arrived. I will now start consulting EU leaders on how to react.” Johnson made clear he was making the request under duress. The letter requesting an extension was not signed. It was accompanied by a second letter, signed by Johnson, arguing that delay would “damage the interests if the U.K. and our EU partners.” Earlier in the day, Johnson told lawmakers that “further delay would be bad for this country, bad for the European Union and bad for democracy.”

French President Emmanuel Macron seemed to agree. Macron’s office said he spoke to Johnson by phone and insisted on the need for “quick clarification of the British position on the accord.” The president’s office said Macron indicated to the British prime minister that “a delay would be in no one’s interest.” At a rare weekend sitting of Parliament, lawmakers voted 322-306 to withhold their approval of the Brexit deal until legislation to implement it has been passed. The vote sought to ensure that the U.K. cannot crash out of the EU without a deal on the scheduled departure date. Johnson, who struck the agreement with the EU

One of Europe’s last wild rivers is in danger of being tamed By Elena Becatoros and John Flesher Associated Press

ALONG THE VJOSA RIVER — Under a broad plane tree near Albania’s border with Greece, Jorgji Ilia fills a battered flask from one of the Vjosa River’s many springs. “There is nothing else better than the river,” the retired schoolteacher says. “The Vjosa gives beauty to our village.” The Vjosa is temperamental and fickle, changing from translucent cobalt blue to sludge brown to emerald green, from a steady flow to a raging torrent. Nothing holds it back for more than 270 kilometers (170 miles) in its course through the forest-covered slopes of Greece’s Pindus mountains to Albania’s Adriatic coast. This is one of Europe’s last wild rivers. But for how long? Albania’s government has set in motion plans to dam the Vjosa and its tributaries to generate much-needed electricity for one of Europe’s poorest countries, with the intent to build eight dams along the main river. It’s part of a world hydropower boom, mainly in Southeast Asia, South America, Africa and less developed parts of Europe. In the Balkans alone, about 2,800 projects to tame rivers are underway or planned, says Olsi Nika of EcoAlbania, a nonprofit that opposes the projects. Some tout hydropower as a reliable, cheap and renewable energy source that helps curb dependence on planet-warming fossil fuels. But some recent studies question hydropower’s value in the fight against global warming. Critics say the benefits of hydropower are overstated — and outweighed by the harm dams can do. Rivers are a crucial part of the global water cycle. They act as nature’s arteries, carrying energy and nutrients across vast landscapes, providing water for drinking, food production and industry. They’re a means of transportation for people and goods, and a haven for boaters and anglers. Rivers are home to a diversity of fish — including tiny minnows, trout and salmon — and provide shelter and food for birds and mammals. But dams interrupt their flow, and the life in and around them. While installing fish ladders and widening tunnels to bypass dams helps some species, it hasn’t worked in places like the Amazon, says Julian Olden, a University of Washington ecologist. Dams block the natural flow of water and sediment. They also can change the chemistry of the water and cause toxic algae to grow. Those who live along the riverbank or rely on the waterway for their livelihood fear dams could kill the Vjosa as they know it. Its fragile

ecosystem will be irreversibly altered, and many residents will lose their land and homes. In the 1990s, an Italian company was awarded a contract to build a dam along the Vjosa in southern Albania. Construction began on the Kalivac dam, but never was completed, plagued with delays and financial woes. Now, the government has awarded a new contract for the site to a Turkish company. Energy ministry officials rejected multiple interview requests to discuss their hydropower plans. Many locals oppose the plans. Dozens of residents from the village of Kute joined nonprofits to file what was Albania’s first environmental lawsuit against the construction of a dam in the Pocem gorge, a short distance downriver from Kalivac. They won in 2017, but the government has appealed. The victory, while significant, was just one battle. A week later, the government issued the Kalivac contract. EcoAlbania plans to fight that project, too. Ecologically, there is a lot at stake. A recent study found the Vjosa was incredibly diverse. More than 90 types of aquatic invertebrates were found in the places where dams are planned, plus hundreds of fish, amphibian and reptile species, some endangered and others endemic to the Balkans. Dams can unravel food chains, but the most well-known problem with building dams is that they block the paths of fish trying to migrate upstream to spawn. As pressure to build dams intensifies in less developed countries, the opposite is happening in the U.S. and western Europe, where there’s a movement to tear down dams considered obsolete and environmentally destructive. More than 1,600 have been dismantled in the U.S., most within the past 30 years, according to the advocacy group American Rivers. In Europe, the largest-ever removal began this year in France, where two dams are being torn down on Normandy’s Selune River. With so few wild rivers left around the globe, the Vjosa also is a valuable resource for studying river behavior. “Science is only at the beginning of understanding how biodiversity in river networks is structured and maintained,” says researcher Gabriel Singer of the Leibniz-Institute in Germany. “The Vjosa is a unique system.” For Shyqyri Seiti, it’s much more personal. The 65-year-old boatman has been transporting locals, goods and livestock across the river for about a quarter century. The construction of the Kalivac dam would spell disaster for him. Many of the fields and some of the houses in his nearby village of Ane Vjose would be lost.

earlier this week, said he was not “daunted or dismayed” by the result and would continue to do all he can to get Brexit done in less than two weeks. Parliament’s first weekend sitting since the Falklands War of 1982 had been dubbed “Super Saturday.” It looked set to bring Britain’s Brexit saga to a head , more than three years after the country’s divisive decision to leave the EU. But the government’s hopes were derailed when House of Commons Speaker John Bercow said he would allow a vote on an amendment to put the vote on the deal off until another day. The amendment makes support

for the deal conditional on passage of the legislation to implement it, something that could take several days or weeks. It also gives lawmakers another chance to scrutinize — and possibly change— the Brexit departure terms while the legislation is in Parliament. The government still hopes it can pass the needed legislation by the end of the month so the U.K. can leave on time. The leader of the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, said the government would hold a debate Monday on its Brexit-implementing legislation — effectively a second attempt to secure approval for the deal.

Bears, Magicians split tight series By Jeff Helminiak Peninsula Clarion

Both the Kenai River Brown Bears and the Minnesota Magicians each took three points out of a tight, hotly contested North American Hockey League series Friday and Saturday at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex. The Magicians notched a 1-0 shootout victory Friday before the Bears came back for a 2-1 overtime victory Saturday. With Saturday’s win, the Bears jump into first place in the Midwest Division with a 7-3-1-2 record. The Chippewa (Wisconsin) Steel

are a point behind, while the Fairbanks Ice Dogs are two points behind. Minnesota, at 3-6-3-0, is in last in the division. Saturday, the Bears got their power play going and solved Minnesota goalie Wes Mankowski just in time. Kenai River went 0 for 4 with the extra man Friday and was 0 for 4 Saturday when Logan Ritchie scored with just 2:10 remaining in the game to tie it at 1. Wasilla’s Porter Schachle and Lajoie had the assists. Mankowski finally gave up a goal after also shutting the Bears out Friday. Then, 2:04 into overtime,

Eagle River’s Zach Krajnik came up with the gamewinner on assists from Trey LaBarge and Ryan Reid. Minnesota’s lone goal came from Blake Kryska in the second period. Kenai River fought back to make a winner of goalie Landon Pavlisin, who shut the Magicians out Friday only to lose in the shootout. Pavlisin stopped 32, while Mankowski saved 45. After Friday’s game, only four teams in the North American Hockey League had scored fewer goals than the Magicians this season, but the squad continued to find ways to pick up points on

the road with the 1-0 shootout victory. Oct. 11, the Magicians started their trip to Alaska by defeating the Fairbanks Ice Dogs 2-1 in a shootout that went all the way to 12 skaters on each team. After losing to the Ice Dogs 4-1 the following night, Minnesota traveled to Kenai to earn two more points without scoring a regulation goal. “It’s good for us to steal points on the road,” Minnesota head coach A.J. Bucchino said. “I feel this team is headed in the right direction, but it’s good to get See bears, Page B2

Stars capture 8th straight state crown SoHi caps perfect season By Joey Klecka Peninsula Clarion

Big team. Little me. The slogan that the Soldotna football team has rode to eight straight Division II state titles was never more evident Saturday night at Anchorage Football Stadium than in the post-game celebration, when members of the Stars lifted up team manager Matthew Martinelli into the air — wheelchair and all — as the team toasted another state crown. Soldotna romped its way to a 69-13 victory over the Lathrop Malamutes to further boost its status as Alaska’s most dominant prep football program ever. SoHi has won 12 of the last 14 state championships in small- and medium-schools divisions. Galen Brantley Jr. has guided the team to 11 of those titles as head coach of the Stars, infusing an unstoppable Wing-T system over the years that has created a dynasty, and part of that system stresses teamwork, not individual, which is in part why Martinelli got to have so much of the fun after the win. “Matt’s really an inspiration for the team,” said senior tight end Galen Brantley III. “He’s out there week in and week out,” added senior fullback Wyatt Medcoff. “He’s pushing through it, we should to.” Martinelli’s role on the team may seem small as team manager, but his impact on players is large. Martinelli has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair, but was very much a part of the celebration Saturday night as his teammates celebrated their accomplishment of a 9-0 season. Brantley Jr. said watching the senior class grow up from their Pop Warner days to winning a fourth ring in four years at the high school

level is what made Saturday night so special. “It’s special for me, just because I’ve had those young guys so long when they were little,” Brantley Jr. said. “Just couldn’t be happier that they finished playing a good game.” For senior quarterback Jersey Truesdell, the game was the final chapter of a career that’s come full circle. Truesdell was called on to start the 2016 state final against Palmer as a freshman, following the loss of the team’s starting QB Brandon Crowder, to injury. At age 15, Truesdell grabbed hold of the reins and guided the Stars to the victory that day, and he hasn’t looked back since with a 4-0 record in championship finals. Truesdell said the nerves he felt as a freshman weren’t there Saturday as the quarterback and leader of the team, which allowed him to enjoy the experience, and he was named Northern Lights Conference Offensive Player of the Year afterward. “I just feel complete,” he said. “This has been just a great ride, and I’m not a cryer when it comes to stuff like this, but I’m super proud of my friends, proud of everything we’ve done.” The SoHi signal-caller recorded a masterful game, capping his senior campaign with five total touchdowns and 281 yards of total offense — Truesdell tossed three TD passes with 144 yards while rushing for a team-high 137 yards and two TD runs. In addition to Truesdell, the Stars got big days out of Medcoff (98 rushing yards and two TDs), Aaron Faletoi (73 yards and two TDs), Brantley III (68 receiving yards and two TD catches) and Hudson Metcalf (76 receiving yards and a TD, as well as an interception). SoHi’s incredible run was also made possible by a

senior-laden offensive line, led by NLC Lineman of the Year Melvin Lloyd, who took time to soak in the victory. “Some people can really lose the meaning behind it after winning so many,” Lloyd said. “But everything on this team has meaning, and there’s nothing you can take away from that.” Lathrop was playing in its first state football final since 1985, when the Malemutes lost 26-10 to East Anchorage in the days of single classification. Lathrop head coach Luke Balash said the youth of the 2019 team provided enough areas to improve in the weeks between the regular-season meeting and Saturday’s title clash. “About half our starters are sophomores, so they learned a lot from the last go-around, but not enough to catch up with the juggernaut that is SoHi,” Balash said. “This is a special year for them.” While SoHi dominated the contest with 524 yards of offense, one of the game’s biggest playmakers

was Henry, the 6-foot-3, 240-pound Lathrop QB who put on a show. Henry rushed for a game-high 200 yards on 25 carries and scored all three Lathrop touchdowns on the ground. Brantley Jr. said slowing Henry down was a prerogative. “We certainly came out a little slow and Lathrop showed up ready to play,” he said. The Malemutes sure flashed some talent early as Lathrop drove 68 yards down field on its first possession and scored to take a 7-6 lead in the first quarter. That 3-yard touchdown run by QB Jace Henry was followed by a rare defensive stand against SoHi, as Truesdell was sacked on third down to force a punt. However, in what was perhaps the biggest momentum swing of the game, Lathrop was charged with roughing the kicker on the SoHi punt, breathing new life See sohi, Page B2

SoHi tops Kenai on emotional senior night Nikiski beats Homer on senior night; Seward, Cook Inlet Academy also in action By Joey Klecka Peninsula Clarion

Senior night for the Soldotna volleyball team took on added meaning Friday night following the tragic loss of a fellow student. The Stars defeated peninsula rivals Kenai Central 3-1 in a nonconference game, winning with scores of 25-16, 23-25, 25-14 and 25-16. SoHi emerged victorious less than 48 hours after learning of the death of Soldotna senior Macie Schroeder-Dalebout, 17, who was killed in a single-car rollover

Thursday morning on the Sterling Highway. SchroederDalebout was a manager for the basketball and wrestling teams, and was friends with many student athletes, including seniors Bailey Armstrong and Holleigh Jaime, who said Friday night’s victory was dedicated to their fallen friend. “I definitely think this win was for Macie,” Armstrong said. “I think we had to think of it, not as she’s gone, but let’s play for Macie. Let’s do it for her.” Hours after hearing the news Thursday, SoHi had to

prepare for a Northern Lights Conference contest with the Colony Knights. The Stars ended up losing a close, competitive game in four sets, and Armstrong said the team desperately wanted to win Friday. “Last night was pretty tough, it was pretty emotional,” Armstrong said. “But I felt the win against Kenai definitely helped us.” “We did what we could,” added Jaime. “It was a rough night, a rough day. It was sad for our whole entire community.” Prior to Friday’s match,

there were plenty of hugs going around the SoHi team, and SoHi head coach Luke Baumer stepped up to deliver his typical rendition of the national anthem. Baumer praised his team’s ability to perform under the emotional circumstances. “We battled through the emotions of Macie last night, and we battled again with the emotions still fresh on senior night,” he said. “That was unusual for us. We all know senior night’s always a really tough one for the girls See volley, Page B3

into the Stars offense. SoHi made Lathrop pay by scoring the go-ahead TD on the drive, an 8-yard burst along the edge by Wyatt Medcoff with 2:18 left in the opening frame. “Even with a little bit of adversity, we were resilient, they didn’t stop and eventually we pulled away,” Brantley Jr. said. As if to drive their point home, the Stars scored just three plays later with an 18-yard interception return

TD by Galen Brantley III. Henry scrambled to avoid pressure from the SoHi D-line and lobbed up a pass as he was being tackled, which landed in the hands of Brantley III for the pick-six and a 20-7 lead. After stopping Lathrop on downs, SoHi opened up its passing game, starting with a 4-yard connection from Truesdell to Brantley III on a fade route that left Brantley wide open. The Truesdell-Brantley connection returned on the next drive, which ended in an 18-yard short toss that finished with Brantley scampering along the sideline into

the end zone. That pushed the SoHi lead to 34-7 with six minutes left in the first half.

Astros make World Series by walking off on Yanks HOUSTON (AP) — Jose Altuve, the 5-foot-6 driving force of Houston, delivered a swing that will play in Astros’ highlights forever. Altuve homered off Aroldis Chapman with two outs in the ninth inning and Houston outlasted the New York Yankees 6-4 Saturday night to advance to the World Series for the second time in three years. “That’s one of the best moments of postseason history,” Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow said. In a bullpen Game 6 with a back-and-forth finish, DJ LeMahieu hit a tying, tworun shot off Astros closer Roberto Osuna in the top of

the ninth. Altuve answered with a two-run drive to leftcenter, setting off a wild celebration at Minute Maid Park and earning himself AL Championship Series MVP. “Beautiful game,” Altuve said. Astros ace Gerrit Cole was waiting to pitch a potential Game 7 on Sunday. Instead, the postseason star — undefeated since May 22 — can be lined up for Game 1 at home against the NL champion Washington Nationals on Tuesday night. Yuli Gurriel hit a three-run homer in the first inning, and flashy outfield defense helped Houston’s relievers defeat the Yankees and their

points while we’re trying to figure out how to score more goals.” The last time Minnesota goalie Mankowski started before Friday was Sept. 28 in a 4-2 loss to the Bears in Minnesota. Friday he made 48 saves and stopped both shooters in the shootout to avenge that defeat. “It was a fun game,” Bucchino said. “Both teams had chances and both goalies made good saves. It could have gone either way. “I feel we possessed the puck better, but we had trouble getting the puck to the net with enough bodies there to cause problems.” Taking the hard-luck loss for the Bears was goalie Pavlisin, who

vaunted bullpen. It almost fell apart in the ninth. Gio Urshela singled off Osuna leading off for his third hit of the game, and LeMahieu put a ball into the first row of seats in right field — inches over the glove of leaping George Springer — to tie it at 4. Altuve, a sparkplug touted as Houston’s heart and soul, didn’t let this one get away. “I get asked to describe Jose Altuve all the time,” manager AJ Hinch said. “I think MVP is what he is.” The teams combined to use 14 pitchers in a drawnout game that lasted 4 hours, 9 minutes. Houston’s Will Harris, who

stopped all 35 shots he saw, but allowed both Marko Reifenberger and T.J. Sagissor to score in the shootout. Bucchino said Reifenberger is the steady captain for the team, while Sagissor is the one who finally came up with the game-winner in the lengthy Fairbanks shootout. “He played great,” Brown Bears head coach Kevin Murdock said Pavlisin. “He got beat by two pretty good moves.” Although the official shot count was 48-35 in Kenai River’s favor, Murdock agreed with Bucchino that Minnesota may have had a little more offensive zone possession. Murdock said the Magicians were better transitioning from defense to offense than the Bears, and that may have led to a little more possession. “I think once the guys got into the

Right fielder Josh Reddick dived for Brett Gardner’s liner for the second out of the sixth. An inning later, left fielder Michael Brantley laid out for Aaron Hicks’ shallow floater and doubled off Aaron Judge at first. Gurriel, a holdover from Houston’s 2017

offensive zone, they were doing fine with possession,” Murdock said. He said Minnesota’s defense did a great job eliminating second and third chances. That’s what it would have taken to beat Mankowski. Kenai River did have its fair share of near goals, including Kyle Valiquette hitting the pipe in the second period, Cody Moline being denied on a breakaway with 15 minutes, 52 seconds left in the game, and Valiquette being twice denied on open chances out front with about 7 1-2 minutes to play. The Bears also had power plays with 3:16 and 1:08 left in regulation they weren’t able to convert. Minnesota was 0 for 3 with the extra man, while the Bears were 0 for 4. Murdock said the Bears still showed inexperience on the power play. Kenai River had two players

championship team, was 1 for 20 to start the ALCS before his drive in the first inning. He jumped all over a high-and-tight fastball from opener Chad Green, and his shot into the Crawford Boxes was his first connection this postseason. It’s the third time Houston has eliminated New York in the past five postseasons. The Astros won the 2015 wild-card game in the Bronx and beat the Yankees in seven games in the 2017 ALCS before winning their first title. “I feel like we are on equal footing with them,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “Unfortunately, sports can be

Hadfield, who also has a year left after this season, was a free agent. The Kenai River head coach said the Bears had six defensemen available Friday, but were leaving Soldotna’s Preston Weeks, the captain, on the ice late in the game for a simple reason. “He was playing well, so he wanted to keep him out there as much as possible,” Murdock said. “He’s in great shape.” The Bears now travel to play the Maine Nordiques on Friday at 3 p.m. AKDT.

a little bit cruel for the team that goes home.” Washington is seeking its first championship in the 51-season history of the Montreal Expos/Nationals franchise.

titles for the peninsula on the girls side. She triumphed in the 200-yard individual medley and 100 backstroke. On the boys side, Colony scored 81.5 points, while runner-up Kodiak had 59. Kenai was third, Seward was fourth and Soldotna was sixth. Peninsula boys won three individual races.

I was proud of them.” In addition to Jaime and Armstrong, the Stars celebrated seniors Ituau Tuisaula, Serena Foglia, Kylie Ness, Casey Earll and Trayce Lyon. Jaime had a strong serving night, tallying seven aces to go with six digs on defense. The SoHi offense was powered by Tuisaula with 10 kills, Armstrong with seven kills, Lyon with seven kills and three blocks, and Serena Foglia with three blocks. Sierra Kuntz set it all up with 27 assists on the night. SoHi got off to a blazing start with a bevy of service points from Tuisaula, Armstrong and Kuntz in the first set, forcing Kenai to call timeout down 13-3. That start carried the Stars to a dominant set win and 1-0 match lead. The Kardinals returned with a different attitude in Game 2, racing out to a 10-4 lead with a handful of kill points from Bethany Morris and Abby Every. The hitting duo helped keep the Kards close throughout the final three sets. An eight-point run boosted Kenai’s lead to 15-4 at one point in the second

The Seward boys team of Spanos, Paxton Hill, John Moriarty and Hunter Hollingsworth also won the 200 freestyle relay. Palmer Invitational

set, but SoHi continued pressing the front line and forced the Kards into mistakes that brought SoHi back into the game. The Stars closed to 21-18 before Kenai called timeout, then a pair of points and a service point by Jaime tied it up at 23-all. Kenai finished the set with points won by SoHi outs to tie the match at 1-all. Tuisaula got the third set off to a quick start with a few serve points that got SoHi out to a 12-4 lead, and the Stars were able to hang on from there to take a 2-1 match lead. SoHi used a 5-0 run in the fourth set to grab a 13-4 lead, then expanded their lead to 20-10 with a six-point swing as the front line kept Kenai at bay.

Colony 3, Soldotna 2 The host Stars ended an emotionally draining weekend with a 19-25, 25-16, 15-25, 25-21 and 15-11 loss to the Knights in Northern Lights Conference play. Soldotna finishes up NLC play at 5-3, and also falls to 12-3 overall in nontournament play. Baumer said what really stood out about the weekend is the resilience of his team and the support shown by the Colony and Soldotna volleyball programs. Thursday, Colony brought a dozen yellow roses and gave one of them to every Soldotna player after the match. The Kardinals also

Sierra Kuntz had 42 assists, while Holleigh Jaime had nine digs and Trayce Lyon had four blocks.

The team then fell into a big hole in losing the first game. “During that first game, we were a little on the emotional side,” Nikiski head coach Stacey Segura said. But the coach said her team rebounded quickly. “I was a little nervous, but I knew the girls really wanted to play well for senior night to prove they could beat Homer,” Segura said. As it turned out, it was a great way for a group that owns a state championship to exit their home floor. “They’re great kids with a strong mind-set and they work really well together,” Segura said. “They’ve worked really well with the younger girls. They’re definitely going to be missed.” Jeffreys had 30 digs, while Druesedow added 13 and Reichert had 12. Druesedow also had nine assists, while Kaitlyn Johnson had 19 assists. In the kills department, Lillian Carstens had nine, Kaycee Bostic had eight and Johnson had five. Carstens also had nine blocks, while Johnson had six aces.

Bringing HOPE

to women on the Kenai Peninsula. While 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her life, there are over 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the United States today. The best defense is early detection: Know how your breasts usually feel and look and report any changes to your physician right away. A mammogram is the most effective way to detect cancer when lumps are too small to be felt or seen. Experts recommend a yearly mammogram beginning at age 40 for women at average risk; for those with higher risk factors a mammogram may be recommended earlier. Talk to your doctor to see what screening options are right for you.

BRING THE OUTSIDE IN There are a number of ways to bring the feel of nature indoors

By Kim Cook Associated Press


he term “biophilia,” an affinity for the living world, was coined back in the 1980s by American biologist and author E.O. Wilson. We have an instinctive drive to connect with nature, he said, and the more we connect, the happier we are. That’s why a walk in the woods can feel so good, or a sit on a quiet beach. In our homes, we might try to bring the outside in with a potted tree, some herbs on the window sill, perhaps floral wallpaper or landscape art. Some other creative ideas from innovative designers today: “When I first started reading about biophilic design and how we needed to be flooding our homes with gorgeous natural views, daylight and plants I thought, ‘Well that’s dandy, but how about people in homes and work spaces that just don’t have access to these things?’” says Phoebe Oldrey, who runs Smart Style Interiors in Tunbridge Wells, England. “How do I, as an interior designer, give them the benefits of biophilic design? The answer came in the choice of materials we use in our designs, and natural materials is the way to go.” In one home, she designed floating maple cabinetry inlaid with a pattern of swallows in flight. In a dining/kitchen space with doors opening onto a leafy outdoor area, she placed a large light fixture composed of colorful glass bubbles; it’s as though a cluster of errant balloons drifted in from the backyard. And in a weekend cottage, she placed a ceiling fixture made of woven sticks over the bed, evoking a cozy bird’s nest. Lighting is a great way to bring a biophilic element into a room. If you like the idea of that stick fixture, check out Serena & Lily’s Vero pendant made of wispy woven rattan twigs. All Modern has

Brooklyn’s Nea Studio has found a formula for treating green marine algae so it becomes firm yet malleable. Designer Nina Edwards Anker handcrafts the algae into light shades that cast a warm glow. Anker has also created a solar chandelier made from shells and

photovoltaic modules; hang the fixture in a window and it becomes a solar clock, turning on at dusk. Passing breezes make it a wind chime, too. New technologies are giving us lighting that’s more reflective of outdoor light. Ketra offers an LED system that can be tuned so the room lighting moves from warm candlelight to a wintry Arctic sky. Nanoleaf’s light panels interlock; affix them to a wall, then operate them remotely to cycle through

arrays like “sunrise” and “Northern Lights.” If you’re renovating or building, think about adding cutouts beyond the traditional windows and sliding doors — horizontal lighting like skylights, for instance. Bo Sundius of Bunch Design in Los Angeles says the firm always thinks about how sun and light moving across rooms can be used to connect interiors to the outdoors. In one converted garage project,

long clerestory windows were placed high on the walls of a small living room. Afternoon light streams through a west-facing skylight, and a stepped ceiling creates more interesting light plays. “The house sits in the middle of a dense residential neighborhood,” says Sundius, “yet it feels airy and open.” This fall, Farrow & Ball debuted Colour by Nature, a See COLOR, Page C2

Woman in Arkansas acts to make cancer fight beautiful By Ashley Gardner Texarkana Gazette

DE QUEEN, Ark. — A recent photo shoot of Kelsey Johnson shaving wife Charlie’s head after she started treatment for breast cancer has drawn national attention. The images convey the fear, bravery and strength that are all part of the journey in a fight against cancer. The Texarkana Gazette reports the Johnsons live near De Queen, Arkansas. As many who are receiving cancer treatment do, Charlie was worried about losing her hair. To some, it might seem a small fear

in the face of a life-threatening disease, but it’s one that weighs heavy on the hearts of those affected. “I had thought about losing my hair and those thoughts are terrifying,” said Charlie, 34, who was diagnosed in May. But instead of letting her hair fall out a little at a time, she and friend Mandy Parks, who is a professional photographer, collaborated on an idea they thought had the potential to help others — a photo shoot showing Charlie meeting her fear head-on and allowing her husband to shave her head. “For me, personally, I thought going completely shaved would

be easier than losing hair patches at a time,” she said. “I wanted to do this from the time I found out I had cancer, so it could possibly help someone else. There are so many women dealing with this or getting ready to deal with it, so many women that need that encouragement to push through and not let the cancer control them.” The photo shoot theme was a collaboration between the two friends. “Mandy and I actually had the same thoughts. We wanted it to be a vanity set up in a field,” Charlie said. Mandy’s creative focus was

seeing the process in a different light than one might expect. “I wanted it to be beautiful, not just in a bathroom. I wanted to make something terrible pretty and beautiful,” she said. Charlie was on the same page. “I wanted it to be a beautiful experience, the whole set up, all of it. Making cancer beautiful, that was the whole plan of it because cancer is an ugly, ugly thing,” Charlie said. There were some very personal props in the photo shoot, including Charlie’s great grandmother’s vanity and a necklace her grandmother wore when she was going through treatment for breast

cancer a couple of decades before. “Wearing my grandmother’s necklace meant everything to me,” she said. “She was a 17-year survivor, but we lost her last August to Alzheimer’s.” Other items include a $40 pink dress and pink boxing gloves purchased from Amazon. The days leading up to the photo shoot were fraught with tension. It actually had to be moved up a week because Charlie’s hair was falling out fast. “I noticed an increase in the rate I was losing hair. About a week before the shoot I ran my See CANCER, Page C2

Move over, Honeycrisp: New apple to debut at grocery stores By Nicholas K. Geranios Associated Press SPOKANE — They call it the Cosmic Crisp. It’s not a video game, a superhero or the title of a Grateful Dead song. It’s a new variety of apple, coming to a grocery store near you Dec. 1 Cosmic Crisp is the first apple ever bred in Washington state, which grows the majority of the United States’ apples. It’s expected to be a game changer. Already, growers have planted 12 million Cosmic Crisp apple trees, a sign of confidence in the new variety. While only 450,000 40-pound (18-kilogram) boxes will be available for sale this year, that will jump to more than 2 million boxes in 2020 and more than 21 million by 2026. The apple variety was developed by Washington State University. Washington growers, who paid for the research, will have the exclusive right to sell it for the first 10

years. The apple is called Cosmic Crisp because of the bright yellowish dots on its skin, which look like distant stars. “I’ve never seen an apple prettier in the orchard than these things are,” said Aaron Clark of Yakima, whose family owns several orchards in central Washington and has planted 80 acres of Cosmic Crisps. The new variety keeps for a long time in storage and in the refrigerator, said Kate Evans, who runs the breeding program at Washington State University. And it’s an exceptionally good “eating apple,” she said. “It’s ultracrisp, very juicy and has a good balance of sweetness and tartness.” Cosmic Crisps are a cross between the disease-resistant Enterprise and the popular, crunchy Honeycrisp varieties. The Honeycrisp, nicknamed “Moneycrisp” by some growers, was the latest apple to spark a big buzz in the United States when it was

introduced a couple of decades ago. It was developed by the University of Minnesota. “This apple (Cosmic Crisp) has a good opportunity to be a hit with a lot of people,” said Clark, a vice president of Price Cold Storage, a company with orchards and fruit warehouses throughout central Washington. “It better be, because we are going to have a lot of them.” Apples are a $2.5 billion a year business in Washington, which grows about 60% of the nation’s supply, or nearly 140 million boxes. The top varieties are Gala (23, Red Delicious (20%) and Fuji (13%). Apples are grown in the arid valleys and brown hillsides of central Washington, a few hours east of Seattle, and watered by irrigation projects. The state has around 1,500 apple growers and 175,000 acres of orchards. About 50,000 people pick some 12 billion apples by hand each fall. The fruit is exported to 60 countries.

Now is the time harvest discounts at garden centers Color From Page C1

By Dean Fosdick Associated Press

Fall is the best time of year to get new trees, shrubs and perennials into the ground before cold weather sets in, and it’s often the best time to buy them, too. Garden centers traditionally mark down their off-season inventories rather than muscle them indoors for overwintering protection. Discounted items also might include succulents and carnivorous plants, garden furniture, tools and statuary, potting soil and fertilizers. Many of the sale items are teasers, priced so low that you can’t resist pulling out your wallet even though you may have to work hard at protecting them once they make it home. Before heading out for your bargain shopping, anticipate. Set aside several sheltered areas along retaining walls or the sides of buildings for what one veteran gardener labels “clearance stashes.” Understand that nurturing those unplanned-for plants until spring may eat into your investment, at least in terms of late-season sweat equity. They’ll need a deep watering, holes dug for their containers or burlap-wrapped root balls, and then some fill dirt or straw layered around them for insulation. “Containers are vulnerable to freeze damage,” said Weston Miller, a horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension Service. “Overall, I would recommend planting things right away if you buy in fall sales. Overwintering them is not worth it if you’re going with planters. Most people are not willing to deal with all that.” Fall end-of-season sales are the biggest of the year, said Maureen Murphy, owner of Bayview Farm and Garden near Langley, Washington. “We do progressive sales,” Murphy said. “So


This assortment of succulents, photographed Aug. 21, were marked down 40 percent at Bayview Farm & Garden, a grower-retailer operation located near Langley, Washington. Late summer and early fall are great times of the year to shop at garden centers because they typically mark down their offseason inventories rather than cart them indoors for overwintering.

much is marked off one week and then more is marked off the next. People like it. It’s kind of a game for them. Will it be here next week at 30 percent off?” Garden centers — especially those in the somewhat winter-friendly Pacific Northwest — recommend that people plant in the fall, she said. “The ground is still warm and that’s

when the seasonal rains arrive. The plants spend their time until spring rooting in.” Small, privately owned garden centers have to be quick to adapt to consumer demands, Murphy said. Her Whidbey Island growerretailer operation is open now year-round with a gift shop and restaurant on site. It draws tourists along with gardeners, she said.

How to make Halloween decor less scary for wildlife By Melissa Kossler Dutton Associated Press

Fake cobwebs and some other spooky, outdoor Halloween decorations meant as harmless fun can do real damage to wildlife. Halloween spending has skyrocketed in recent years, and the National Retail Federation says Americans are expected to spend $2.7 billion on Halloween decorations this year. Wildlife organizations say they also have seen an increase in animal visits to local rehabilitation centers for injuries related to the outdoor holiday decorations. “The fake cobwebs are of particular concern,” said Lisa Bloch, director of

hands through my hair and a handful came out. I was scared. Every time I touched it I would lose hair. It was very emotional,” Charlie said. Kelsey was the person Charlie chose to shave her head. Former high school sweethearts, they married in May three years after reuniting and just a couple of weeks after Charlie’s diagnosis. “I told him I wanted him to be the one to do it because he’s in this just as much as I am,” she said. “A lot of people don’t think about spouse and caregiver in these situations but they deal with it as much as we do so it was very important that he be there with me.” The photos capture intimate moments between a

communications for the Marin Humane in Novato, California. When they’re strung across bushes and trees, “wildlife can easily get stuck in these webs.” The fake webs can trap animals, said Alison Hermance of WildCare, a nonprofit wildlife hospital and nature education center in San Rafael, California. Birds caught in them can damage their wings and claws. Chipmunks and other low-to the-ground rodents can also get caught and damage their paws. If you observe an animal in trouble, always call a wildlife center before intervening, Bloch said. Halloween lights and other items that dangle also can pose problems for wildlife. Deer and elk can get holiday lights, netting,

husband and wife. “It was hard to do the photo shoot because I was scared I was going to cry,” Kelsey said. Of course, he did cry but that honest emotion captured on film is one thing that made the photos real for so many people. The couple laugh talking about the experience now when Charlie says how Kelsey “went for it” as he started shaving her beautiful, blond curls off. “When she says I went at it, that was just me trying to tackle it. If I’d have went slow it wouldn’t have happened,” he said. To this day, Kelsey still can’t look at the photos without tearing up. “I can look at an individual photo, but I can’t look at the pictures as a story. I can’t. I cry every single time,” Kelsey said. The experience was so moving for Mandy that she

couldn’t see through her camera’s viewfinder. “It was super emotional. I cried the whole time. I had to use the back display on my camera because my little viewfinder is sensored and it filled up with tears so it turned black,” Mandy said. “That’s never happened before.” Once Mandy posted the photo story, it immediately grabbed attention. Within a few hours, it had blown up into a viral sensation. Charlie, who works the overnight shift as an emergency room nurse at CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System, had gone to sleep when she got home from work. Kelsey was up working from home and keeping an eye on how quickly their story was sweeping the nation. “I thought if it gets 15,000 shares I’m going to wake Charlie up. The next time I looked down it was at like 30,000,” he said. The story was highlighted by national media outlets including Newsweek and and local news stations all across the country. Charlie said the

clothing and other materials stuck in their antlers, said Jason Clay of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Denver office. “We see it every year,” he said. Be aware of what paths animals use in your yard, and avoid placing decorations there, Clay said. Pumpkins and other food items should be disposed of promptly because they entice animals to come closer to your home than they normally would, putting them in contact with pets and increasing the risk of getting hit by a car, Hermance said. Don’t leave any decorations up for an extended period, adds Bloch. “It’s good to be mindful and remove the decorations as soon as you’re done celebrating.”

popularity of their story was a shock. “I had to look up what ‘going viral’ meant,” she said. Mandy downplays her part in the popularity of the photos. “It resonated because you could see the emotion. What I did isn’t what made these pictures beautiful. It’s what they did. Anytime you can feel something when you look at a picture, that’s any photographer’s goal. When you look at Kelsey’s picture and he’s falling apart and your heart breaks for him and all the caregivers. It resonates. It’s real. It’s not a posed family photo. It’s 100% real and that’s what’s so beautiful about it.” What started as something meant to empower and inspire other people fighting the same battle ended up blessing her more than she could have imagined. Charlie and Kelsey had gone wig shopping shortly before the photos were released but Charlie said after the support she received from the people across the country, she hasn’t worn another wig. “I haven’t worn a wig

There’s an orange-tinged white inspired by the breast feathers of an owl; a green evinces the emerald hue of a mallard’s neck. Behr Paint’s 2020 color of the year is a soothing green called Back to Nature; complementary colors include Light Drizzle, Secret Meadow, Dragonfly and Bluebird. Murals can showcase nature dramatically; they work well in family rooms, hallways or bedrooms. For something unusual, consider Flavor Paper’s Saguaro Sessions collection. The studio’s founder, Jon Sherman, and photographer Boone Speed were inspired by a trip to Saguaro National Park to make wallpapers that showcase macro photography of gemstones and minerals, with the crystalline structures creating unique patterns in extreme close-up. Roche Bobois’ Bois Paradis collection from Maison Lacroix features wood cabinets and screens, and upholstered seating, printed with a woodland scene. On the casegoods and tables, the pattern is in silhouette, giving them an air of mystery. Bedding maker Buffy offers the Breeze comforter made of sustainable eucalyptus, and stitched with a wave and wind pattern inspired by the rolling hills of artist Maya Lin’s Storm King Wavefield in Orange County, New York. Buffy’s also introduced a collection of naturally dyed sheets, with dye experts Maria Elena Pombo and Kathy Hattori. They’ve used botanicals like walnut, gardenia, turmeric and pomegranate to gently color the textiles. Miami-based design house Plant the Future is known for biophilic installations like “living” plant murals on building exteriors. They also clad the walls of a Florida client’s dining room in a blanket of soft green moss, and created a 3-D mural out of mushrooms for a client in Spain. They sell preserved moss circles and hearts to hang on the wall, moss letters, and a lush, cursive “I love you.” And to bring the outdoors in via scent, Otherland has soy-based candles with scents of smoke, wood fires, grass and desert sand.

since the post because of all the support I received from it. I do the post to empower someone else and they empower me right back,” she said. Charlie’s diagnosis was a lucky break. She found a lump in her breast and was alarmed. She had a mammogram and ultrasound in April of 2019 but doctors thought it was nothing to worry about and recommended she come back in six months. Within a few weeks the lump, which she describes as superficial, began bothering her. “By the third week of May, it started getting tender to the touch. It was getting on my nerves and I wanted to get rid of it,” she said. She had the lump removed on June 10. When she went for her follow-up appointment on June 25 she thought she’d be in and out of the doctor’s office after they checked her incision which she said was healing nicely. That wasn’t the case. “My surgeon walked in and sat down. He told me my reports had come back and it wasn’t OK,” she said. “He told me I’m so thankful

apples plummet over time, were looking to replicate the success of the Honeycrisp, Adams said. “It’s going to shake things up in a great way,” Adams said. “We’re expecting it to increase in volume rapidly.” Adams could not speculate on how much Cosmic Crisp apples will cost per pound. “Better quality makes for better returns,” said Clark, the grower. “This is a for-profit deal, man. We’re trying to make some money with it.” Remarkably, this is the first apple variety developed in Washington state, which has been known for apples for more than a century. Scientists at WSU’s Tree Fruit Research Center in Wenatchee spent 20 years breeding the desired apple tree seeds. In addition

you wanted this gone and you pushed for this. There’s no telling how advanced it would have been.” Charlie was diagnosed with an aggressive type of cancer. At the time of this story she is finishing up chemo treatments then she’ll start radiation. Her prognosis is good, but she will be on hormone suppression therapy for five years and she’ll have monthly appointments to monitor for recurrence. Having breast cancer has opened Charlie’s eyes to the immense good in other people and has also changed her perspective on her own life. “You never understand the size of this support community and family until you’re in the middle of it. It has just been overflowing, the love and support that has come from everyone,” Charlie said. “In some ways, this has changed my outlook because you never know what tomorrow holds. I’ve made it a point to be positive. I know how important the mental aspect of the game is when it comes to health.”

to helping pay for that research, apple growers need a license to buy the trees and pay a royalty on sales of the fruit. The trees take three years to produce a crop, said Kathryn Grandy, a member of the team marketing the apple. “This will be the largest launch of a single variety ever, globally,” she said, and it’s backed by a $10.5 million marketing budget. Consumers will not have trouble finding the variety, said Grandy, who works for a company called Proprietary Variety Management and is based in the town of Chelan, in the heart of apple country. Work on developing the variety began in 1997, said Evans, of Washington State University. The process of cross-hybridization has been used to breed plants for hundreds of years, Evans said, and is quite different from the more controversial genetic modification methods. “The goal, in my opinion, is to get more consumers eating apples,” she said. “Ultimately that is the goal of any plant breeder.”

An unusual, difficult journey to the Kenai (part 2) By Clark Fair For the Peninsula Clarion

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second part of a two-part story about the Kings County Mining Company’s expedition to the Kenai Peninsula in 1898. Part One explained that the Brooklynbased company, hoping originally to mine in the Klondike, had been forced to change its plans after its well-outfitted ship, the Agate, was delayed sailing around South America. Now the approximately 60 members of the company were hoping to sail into Sunrise and strike it rich. But it was not to be. According to Alaska’s No. 1 Guide, by Catherine Cassidy and Gary Titus, the captain of the Agate, “apparently intimidated by the prospect of navigating Cook Inlet … convinced the group that Sunrise was easily reached overland from Kachemak Bay.” Therefore, on Oct. 16, he deposited the entire company and its “mountain of supplies” on the base of what is now called the Homer Spit. In 1898, there were coal miners living and working in Coal Bay, on the inside of the Spit, but little else resembling civilization was evident. Today’s city of Homer simply did not exist, nor did roads or bridges or accommodations of any sort. The members of the mining company—including some women and possibly some children—were on their own. So they headed generally north, according to Cassidy and Titus, “cutting a trail and ferrying their belongings with packboards and handmade wheelbarrows. Besides a large quantity of foodstuffs, such as casks of flour and bacon, they had all of their mining equipment, including pans, picks, shovels and sledges.” By early November, they had reached a coal-mining operation at McNeil Canyon (now about Mile 12 of East End Road). There, on Nov. 10, they amended their company constitution and bylaws,

naming new officers and a new board of trustees, and trudged onward. They walked the beach to the head of Kachemak Bay, then traveled up the west side of the Fox River drainage and over to Tustumena Lake. Around the eastern end of the lake, they ascended the Birch Creek drainage to reach the benchlands between Tustumena and Skilak lakes. After crossing the Killey River, they made their way to the south shore of Skilak Lake and decided they could go no further. It was winter. They hastily built cabins along a stream that is now known as King County Creek, and hunkered down. In the spring, they gave up. According to Cassidy and Titus, they dissolved their company charter and built boats to carry them downstream to Kenai. Most of them found their way back to the East Coast, no fortunes in their pockets, no mining done at all. And for years afterward, trappers using the miners’ cross-country trail “found caches of equipment and food which the hapless group had abandoned along the way.” But there is a coda to this tale. Enter Hjalmar Anderson, who along with his wife Jessie, homesteaded Caribou Island in Skilak Lake in 1924. According to mid-1970s documentation from longtime early Homer resident Yule Kilcher, Anderson discovered the last remaining cabin on King County Creek in the 1920s and found inside part of a diary and the mining company’s 1898 constitution and bylaws. Anderson rescued the legal document, reported Kilcher, but left the remains of the diary because it had been “used as fire kindling by Army Officers during World War I who were using the cabin as quarters.” Anderson bequeathed the document to Kilcher, and in 1976 Kilcher donated it to Homer’s Pratt Museum. Kilcher also told the museum that at least three members of the

mining company had remained in Alaska, although the exact number is difficult to pin down. According to Cassidy and Titus, it was two: Carl Petterson, who settled in Kenai and married Matrona Demidoff; and Herman Stelter, who was documented living and mining in the Kenai River canyon in the 1910s. The phrase “Stelter’s Ranch” can still be seen on old topographic maps of the area. In her History of Mining on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, Mary J. Barry suggests there may have been at least one more man who stayed, although she names none of them. Likely it was Thomas P. Weatherell, who in November 1898 had been as the mining company’s new vice-president. Kilcher said that one of the men had moved to Talkeetna. In a history of Talkeetna by Coleen Mielke, she describes Weatherell, born in either 1869 or 1871, as “a bachelor from New York” who was the Talkeetna postmaster from 1918 to 1927. As for the Agate, it was sold and added to the West Coast salmonfishing fleet, according to a news

brief in the March 1900 issue of the San Francisco Call. And 53 members of the dissolved mining company, finding themselves without gold and most of their investment, filed lawsuits that in 1903 ended up

before the New York Supreme Court. The court demanded that former company treasurer, Henry W. Rozell, provide all financial records pertaining to company assets and expenses, including the sale of the Agate.

Meet the Wright Brothers

Interest in flying

Mini Fact:

The boys first became interested in flight when their father brought home a helicopter-like toy for the children in 1878. Later, when many people were working on how to build a flying plane, Wilbur and Orville did a lot of research. Wilbur noticed that warping, or twisting, the wings of a biplane would allow him to control the airplane in a turn.

Orville, right, works in the brothers’ bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio.

Wilbur Wright

Wilbur was the older brother, born in 1867. He: • was his father’s favorite child. His father expected more of him than he did the other children. • was a wonderful writer and speaker. • was the visionary of the two brothers. • had a sharp, pointed nose and long neck. • died of typhoid fever in 1912, 36 years before his younger brother.

Orville Wright

Orville, born in 1871, was a good writer. He: • was very shy. He never made a speech in public. He would attend events but never say a word.

• was talkative at home and liked to play practical jokes. • was always tinkering with machines.

The Wrights decided to build a kite to see if this would work. They wanted to test it in a place with strong winds. After contacting the U.S. weather department, they settled on Kitty Hawk, a tiny fishing town on an island off the coast of North Carolina. For four years, from 1900 to 1903, they traveled to Wilbur soars in one Kitty Hawk. They took more than 300 of the gliders. photos, to keep records of their work. The Wrights took careful steps along the way. They tested a kite first, then gliders with and without a pilot. Finally, they were ready to add propellers and an engine. On Dec. 17, 1903, Orville flew 120 feet in 12 seconds. Later that day, Wilbur flew for 59 seconds for a distance of 852 feet.

Family life

The Wright brothers gave their parents credit for their success. Their father, Milton, was a well-educated bishop in the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. He had strong opinions of what was right or wrong. Susan, their mother, was raised around tools because her father was a carriage maker. She knew how to make things and made small appliances and even toys. The family included two older brothers and a younger sister, Katharine, whom Orville and Wilbur were very close to. The famous brothers lived at home and Orville, Katharine and never married.

You’ve probably learned about the Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, who were the first to create and fly a powered heavier-thanair plane. That first flight, on Dec. 17, 1903, set in motion humans’ exploration of the skies. In 1908, Orville won a $25,000 contract with the U.S. Army to build airplanes. This week, The Mini Page is learning more about the two brothers who made it possible for us to travel across the country in just a matter of hours.

Wilbur in Europe in 1909.

Work life

Orville started a printing business in Dayton, Ohio, and Wilbur joined him. They later opened a successful bicycle shop. Knowing how bikes worked, having useful tools around and having a great deal of curiosity and drive enabled the brothers to believe they might invent a way to fly.

Eco Note British researchers say humpback whales have distinctive songs that are unique to where they originally came from, but the tunes can change over time. Ellen Garland of the University of St. Andrews says those songs evolve as the marine mammals encounter others of their species while traveling through the oceans. “We can pinpoint a population a whale has likely come from by what they are singing,” Garland says.

an appointment for yourself with a licensed mental health professional to discuss your situation and your guilt. Please do this before you have a mental or physical breakdown from the stress you are under. While I sympathize with your husband’s mental problems, the fact that he refuses to do all he can to fix them tells me it is time to take care of yourself — for your children’s sake — because you are all they have. Because your husband’s meds are not working, he should have mentioned that fact years ago to the doctor who has been prescribing them.

Instead, they use the speaker option or their Bluetooth speakers for all to hear. I travel frequently. It’s bad enough to suffer through one side of the conversation, but hearing both is worse (and these folks talk at top volume and make no attempt to step out of earshot). Lately, I have also noticed people watching videos in restaurants. At my apartment’s pool, several neighbors do the same thing.

This year, you experience different facets of living. Often you enjoy being the recluse hiding out, yet other times you love being king or queen of the social scene.
