Police seek elderly man recorded lighting fire ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Anchorage police are asking for help identifying an elderly man suspected of walking up to a home and lighting it on fire. The Oct. 16 fire charred the front door and exterior of the south Anchorage home. The homeowner extinguished the fire. The Anchorage Daily News reports homesecurity video recorded the suspect stepping out of a gray or silver Subaru or Toyota station wagon and walking up to the door. He carried a gas can in one hand and a box of matches in the other. The man pours a liquid along the bottom of the door and lights it. As flames appear, the man steps off the porch. He then returns to the porch, possibly to retrieve the gas can. Family members say they don’t recognize the man.

Borough Assembly elects new leadership By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly elected new leadership during their meeting Tuesday night, following the municipal elections at the beginning of this month and the certification of three new assembly members. After an invocation lead by George Holly, Jr. of Kenai and approval of the consent agenda for the evening, the assembly voted on which members would serve as the president and vice president for the 2019-2020 session. Kelly Cooper, representing District 8 in Homer, was the only person nominated to be president and was approved unanimously by the rest of the assembly.

Cooper had previously served as assembly president three years ago and said on Wednesday that she was pleased to be able to serve again. “There were conversations during the elections earlier this month about the assembly being stacked a certain way, but I think this new body is very diverse in terms of people’s backgrounds and stances on the issues,” Cooper said. “Obviously I’d like to see more women serving on the assembly, but I expect to see a lot of healthy debate this year.” The assembly president is responsible for facilitating each meeting by ensuring that the rules and regulations of the assembly are being followed. The president also assists See ASSEMBLY, Page A3

Extreme Fun Center opens

HEA gives updates on downed power line By Brian Mazurek

Warm, wet winter predicted by federal agency ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A warmer and wetter winter than normal is expected in Alaska, according to federal weather forecasters. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration released the winter outlook following an unusually warm summer, news agencies reported. The above-normal temperature prediction for is in large part due to a lack of sea ice, which is expected to result in warmer water that sustains higher land temperatures into the winter, NOAA said. Alaska’s winter will be wetter than normal because warmer air holds more moisture. The state’s temperatures are still expected to be below the freezing point and periods of cold temperatures and snowfall are predicted, the agency said. NOAA issues a three-month outlook each month and the next update is expected Nov. 21.

Children shoot hoops Wednesday in the newly opened Kenai Extreme Fun Center in Kenai.

By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

Kenai’s newest entertainment option has opened just in time for winter. The Extreme Fun Center, a project in the works for around three years, had their soft opening Wednesday. “We’re so excited to be here in Kenai,” said Cheryl Metiva, director of Alaska sales and marketing for Coming Attraction Theatres, the center’s owner. Metiva said the fun center is like a “giant arcade for all ages.” She said the center has 50 games, amd more are on the way. Some of the games are newer and involve popular video games and virtual reality, while other games are classic, like Skee Ball. “As the business grows, we have the ability to grow,” Metiva said.

Hungry patrons can order pizza, wings, mozzarella sticks and more from the center’s food court. The center also has space to to host parties and events. The center is cashless, and gamers recieve pre-paid cards for games and keep track of points, which can then be used to pay for prizes at the gift shop. With the loss of Kenai’s bowling alley years ago, the Extreme Fun Center is hoping to fill a gap in central peninsula entertainment market. “We felt there was a need here,” Metiva said. Between 12 and 16 jobs were added to the community with the openings of the theatre and the fun center. In 2017, Coming Attractions purchased the former Kenai Professional Center, now home to the Extreme Fun Center. The


two-story office space was built in 1968, and has been sitting vacant since the mid 1980s, the Clarion previously reported. Coming Attractions has Extreme Fun Centers in Wasilla and Aberdeen, Washington. The Ashland, Oregon-based Coming Attraction Theatres operates 18 movie theaters in coastal Washington, Oregon and northern California, according to its website. In 2017, the Oregon company also bought the former Kenai Regal Kambe Theatre — now called Kenai Cinema. The movie theatre opened in May and has expanded from three screens to seven screens with stadium seating. The Extreme Fun Center’s hours will be the same as its Wasilla location, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

At this week’s joint Kenai/ Soldotna Chamber of Commerce Luncheon, Homer Electric Association’s General Manager Brad Janorschke gave an update on some recent developments for the energy cooperative. Janorschke started off by comparing the service quality of HEA to that of a California energy company, Pacific Gas and Electric, which made national headlines following their announcement to mitigate wildfire risk by shutting off power to millions of customers. “The good news is, in Alaska, we have not found this to be an acceptable practice,” Janorschke said. “And we’ll do everything possible to make sure that’s something we do not have to do.” Several large wildfires burned across Alaska this summer, and the Swan Lake Fire alone scorched over 167,000 acres on the Kenai Peninsula. The threat posed by the Swan Lake Fire prompted HEA earlier this year to de-energize their transmission line that runs parallel to the Sterling Highway and sends energy back and forth between the Kenai peninsula and other parts of Alaska including Anchorage and Fairbanks. The transmission line moves about 88% of all the hydroelectric power generated by the Bradley Lake hydroelectric facility at the head of Kachemak Bay, Janorschke said. Normally that energy is used to power homes and businesses from Seward to Fairbanks, but Janorschke said that with the transmission line See HEA, Page A3

Republicans disrupt impeachment deposition By Michael Balsamo and Mary Clare Jalonick Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Republicans briefly brought the Democrat-led impeachment investigation to a halt Wednesday when around two dozen GOP House members stormed into a closed-door deposition with a Defense Department official. Democrats said the move compromised national security because some of the Republicans brought electronic devices into a secure room. The protest by Republican lawmakers captured national attention, drawing the focus away

from the testimony of a top U.S. diplomat who told lawmakers just a day earlier that he was told President Donald Trump was withholding military aid from Ukraine unless the country’s president pledged to investigate Democrats. The maneuver delayed a deposition with Laura Cooper, a senior Defense Department official who oversees Ukraine policy, until midafternoon. The interview began roughly five hours behind schedule, after a security check by Capitol officials, and ended after roughly four hours. As a series of diplomats have been interviewed in the impeachment probe, many Republicans have been silent on the president’s conduct.

But they have been outspoken about their disdain for Democrats and the impeachment process, saying it is unfair to them even though they have been in the room questioning witnesses and hearing the testimony. “The members have just had it, and they want to be able to see and represent their constituents and find out what’s going on,” said Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform panel. That committee is one of three leading the investigation, and its members are allowed into the closeddoor hearings. Lawmakers described a chaotic scene. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said she had

just walked into the room when the Republican lawmakers blew past Capitol police officers and Democratic staffers. The staff member who was checking identification at the entrance was “basically overcome” by the Republicans, she said. “Literally some of them were just screaming about the president and what we’re doing to him and that we have nothing and just all things that were supportive of the president,” Wasserman Schultz said. Later when the deposition began, Cooper answered questions from lawmakers and staffers in response to See DISRUPT, Page A2

the facility said that some of the Republicans brought their cellphones, even though electronics are not allowed. All members of Congress are familiar with the protocol of the SCIF, since they are often invited to classified briefings, and there are several such rooms around the Capitol. Several Republicans appeared to be tweeting from the secure room. North Carolina Rep. Mark Walker tweeted: “UPDATE: We are in the SCIF and every GOP Member is quietly listening.” Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, alleged that Republicans “intentionally brought their electronic devices” into the secure area, violating congressional rules and the oath they take to gain access to classified information.

The “unprecedented breach of security raises serious concerns” for committee chairs who maintain secure facilities in the Capitol, Thompson wrote in a letter to the House sergeant at arms asking for action to be taken against members of Congress involved in the breach. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., criticized his Republican colleagues for the tactic, calling them “nuts” to make a “run on the SCIF.” “That’s not the way to do it,” he said. Graham later tweeted that he initially believed Republicans had taken the room by force and that it was actually a “peaceful protest,” adding his House GOP colleagues had “good reason to be upset.” The Republicans who took part in the protest were unbowed. Rep. Steve Scalise, the No. 2 House Republican, said Democrats are

running a “Soviet-style process” that should “not be allowed in the United States of America.” “We’re not going to be bullied,” he said. The standoff came the day after William Taylor testified that he was told Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine until the country’s president went public with a promise to investigate Democrats. Trump wanted to put Ukraine’s leader “in a public box,” Taylor recalled. Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California said Republicans did not want to hear from Cooper because they were “freaked out” by that testimony. “They know more facts are going to be delivered that are absolutely damning to the president of the United States,” Lieu said.

Cooper said that she typically enjoys engaging in debate and swaying other assembly members to agree with her on issues, but she will be doing less debating and more moderating while serving as president. The role of Vice President for this session will be filled by Hal Smalley, representing Kenai in District 2. Smalley was nominated along with Brent Hibbert of the Kalifornsky area and Kenn Carpenter who represents the Eastern Peninsula.

Smalley won with 5 of the 9 votes. Smalley said on Wednesday that he was looking forward to working with the new members of the assembly and has served as Vice President twice in years past and president once. The vice president assumes the role of president when the president is absent from meetings or is recused from discussing certain topics due to a conflict of interest. The assembly votes on new leadership every year after municipal elections are certified and new assembly members are officially sworn in. Previous president and vice president Wayne Ogle of Nikiski and Dale Bagley of Soldotna termed out of their seats this year and were replaced by Jesse Bjorkman and Tyson Cox, respectively.

renewable, hydroelectric energy. Janorschke said that the downside of relying so heavily on the power generated at Bradley Lake is that their other facilities are currently running “at a very low level, and very inefficiently.” HEA has been isolated from the rest of the utility rail belt for a total of four months this year, Janorschke said. Crews from HEA are currently

assessing the area around the transmission line to determine what repairs need to be made, but because of hazards like weakened trees and deep ash pits, the timeline for getting the line re-energized remains unclear. “We don’t know how long that line’s going to be down,” Janorschke said. “It could be weeks, it could be not until late spring.”

department or by citizens. Biologist Dave Battle says the department in 2017 saw 34 bears killed, including three brown bears. Last year, 42 bears were killed, including 14 brown bears. Battle says there are several theories for fewer conflicts. Bears had a lot to eat in forests this year.

Also, the high number of bears killed the previous two years may have removed most of the nuisance bears. Battle said he’s encouraged by a new ordinance that fines people who don’t handle trash properly. That ordinance took effect in mid-June. — Associated Press

Christopher (Chris) Towne Selby, 67, of Ninilchik, AK went home to be with the Lord Jesus on September 25, 2019 at Swedish ICU Hospital in Seattle, WA after suffering liver and organ failure. Chris was born on March 11, 1952 in Baltimore, MD to Harry Joseph (Joe) and Madelene Towne Selby. Chris spent his early years in Kennebunkport, ME where his mother was born and raised and his grandfather was a grocer. When the family moved to Baltimore, MD where Chris went to high school, he did not like city life, but enjoyed exploring the Chesapeake Bay area. Chris followed in his father’s footsteps as a master carpenter and gardener. He married his high school sweetheart, Connie Fetoe. They were married for about 15 years. Later he traveled through Europe and lived in England. He was married to Lisa Rowe of Cambridge, MD for a short time. When his friend, Randolph Murphy, who had a B&B in Ninilchik, invited Chris to travel to Alaska with him in June 2005, Chris told his family he was moving to Alaska. He felt at home in Alaska and enjoyed cooking on fishing and hunting boat trips with Tom and Aaron Mahoney. Lingcod fishing was his favorite. In 2009 he married Martesue Chapman of Ninilchik. In spite of Chris’ many talents, he had a life-long battle with alcohol until 2012 when he fell from the balcony of a house he was working on. When the paramedics found him, they were concerned he would not survive. He suffered a concussion and broken pelvis, but the Lord spared his life and touched his heart with a saving faith in the Lord Jesus. After Chris accepted God’s free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, his drinking addiction ended. He became a new creature in Christ and the obvious change was apparent to all who knew him. He started attending Calvary Baptist Church and became a member after he made a public profession of his faith through baptism in Cook Inlet in September 2012. He loved reading his Bible and C. H. Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening devotional. Chris was not at home in this modern age and was most comfortable in his wool pants, red long underwear and LL Bean low-cut leather/rubber mocs. Chris will be greatly missed and remembered by the beautiful things he made and his very special garden that he shared with all, including sunflowers he grew for his friends and neighbors throughout the summer. As Chris would say, “It’s all of God’s grace.” Chris is survived by his brother Charles (Chuck) and wife, Janet of St. Michaels, MD and his niece Jennifer and husband, Ted Sizemore of Delta, PA. He was preceded in death by his parents and younger brother, David. There will be a memorial service for Chris on Saturday, October 26, 3 pm at Calvary Baptist Church in Ninilchik. Friends and family are invited to share their special memories of Chris.

Pocketbook voting, prospects for Trump’s bid for re-election


ere is some terrific news: The U.S. economy could hum along quite nicely between now and Nov. 3, 2020, at least from the perspective of anyone who owns stocks, has a 401K, is a PERA beneficiary, owns property or works for wages. That is the possibility Moody’s Analytics, the economic research firm, took into account when it recently released a series of predictions for the 2020 elections. Moody’s used three models to determine “whether the incumbent presidential candidate will win the popular vote in each state and the District of Columbia, and thus the necessary electoral college votes to win the election.” “Under the pocketbook model,” CNN’s Chris Cillizza writes, “which places heavy emphasis on gas prices, housing prices and real personal income, Trump is predicted to win with 351 electoral votes. Using the stock market model … Trump wins far more narrowly, with 289 electoral votes. The unemployment model, which mixes real personal income with state-by-state unemployment rates, projects a Trump victory with 332 electoral votes. “Average the three … and you get … Trump with 332 electoral votes, and the Democratic nominee with 206 electoral votes. That result, if it came to pass, would be a marked improvement from Trump’s showing in 2016 when he won with 305 electoral votes.” Democrats could be hoisted by their own petard. In 1992, running the governor of Arkansas to try to deny President George H.W. Bush a second term, James Carville, a Bill Clinton strategist, told campaign workers to remember several key messages. Carville wanted to keep it simple. Unseating Bush was daunting, as it is to unhorse any incumbent president. The last time it had happened, it had befallen a Democrat, 12 years before: Jimmy Carter. Carville told them to keep in mind three things: Change versus more of the same. Don’t forget health care. And, “The economy, stupid.” It was the last one that stuck. There is no reason why it could not work again; it ought to work better for an incumbent, if his campaign can make the argument that any Democrat will reverse a tax cut and not stop there, raising taxes on the middle class and eliminating millions of jobs in the health care and energy sectors. But what about economic inequality? What about the lack of affordable access to health care? What about Medicare for All, the Green New Deal and global warming? What about taxing wealth and breaking up the big corporations that are riding this prosperity? What about getting rid of Trump? It is possible none of that will matter to many voters next Nov. 3 if they perceive the alternatives to Trump will make them poorer. We sometimes say that people who express their economic interests as they perceive them are “pocketbook voters,” as though they are a rare species, when it is the idealists and crusaders who are rarer; they are just louder. Can any of the Democratic candidates pivot to a message of maintaining prosperity, without abandoning the plans they are now announcing and without accepting some inequality? It would take fancy stepping. In 1835, Alexis de Tocqueville observed of America, “I know of no country … where the love of money has taken stronger hold on the affections of men and where the profounder contempt is expressed for the theory of the permanent equality of property.” Writing of conditions in America a century later, John Steinbeck said, “Except for the field organizers of strikes, who were pretty tough monkeys and devoted, most of the so-called Communists I met were middle-class, middleaged people playing a game of dreams. … I guess the trouble was that we didn’t have any self-admitted proletarians. Everyone was a temporarily embarrassed capitalist.” Eighty years on and facing 2020, one has to ask what if anything has changed. — The Durango Herald, Oct. 22

alaska voices | Col. Barry WILSON

Domestic Violence Awareness Month: A Call to Action W

e are near the end of October, and as each day passes, I see the snow progressing down the mountains. As I watch the leaves change from green to vibrant yellow, I also know that October represents something other than the changing of the seasons. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Alaska has many secrets and scars and many wounded women, men, and children. Alaskans are being deprived of beauty in their lives and are being harmed. Our children are growing up in homes where violence is a daily occurrence. Alaska’s rates of domestic violence and sexual assault are unacceptable. As a 30-year veteran of the Alaska State Troopers, I bore witness to countless acts of domestic violence and sexual assault and have seen the long-lasting impacts of the physical and psychological trauma inflicted on victims. Recently, the Alaska Department of Public Safety updated policies relating to domestic violence regarding our response and investigation. Significant advancements in training have occurred over the past five years to improve how domestic violence cases are investigated and how children exposed to violence are interviewed. DPS will partner with a school district in a pilot project called Handle with Care — an effort to support the continued academic success of children who have experienced or witnessed violence. As a law enforcement officer, it is easy for me to focus on solutions that are solely within the criminal justice system. Law enforcement’s role in domestic violence cases is to respond, investigate, and arrest to stop the immediate and ongoing acts of violence. However, as a husband, father, and grandfather, I know that many of the solutions to this crisis lie outside of the criminal justice system. I know that I must be a role model in and out of uniform—especially to children and young men.

Domestic violence is not a private personal or family issue; it is a societal problem that must be pulled from the shadows and snuffed out of existence. We must address the crisis of domestic violence at every level — in our relationships, in our homes, in our schools, in our communities, and in our state. We must band together and use every partnership to work collaboratively and effectively to support survivors, to provide treatment to offenders, and to cure that which ails our families and communities. The climate surrounding domestic violence must change. It will take significant and widespread changes to societal attitudes, norms, and beliefs to end the violence within our families and communities and, most importantly, to stop the violence before it even starts. It is the only way to win this war. It will take all of us. Please, look in a mirror and ask yourself: What will I do?

As the Colonel of the Alaska State Troopers, I know what I will do. I will do my best to ensure that troopers are effective and compassionate when dealing with victims and families of survivors. I know the limitations of the troopers in responding — the two most significant challenges are staffing and geography. I am committed to doing my best to increase staffing and improve response to incidents. I am also committed to partnerships between the state and the federal governments that will enhance our capabilities in rural Alaska. I am committed to working with communities, non-profits, and individuals to provide safety for victims and their children. As a man, I am committed to standing up to domestic violence in our communities. Colonel Barry Wilson has been an Alaska State Trooper since 1990 and was promoted in January of 2019 to the Director for the Division of Alaska State Troopers. His previous position was the Captain and Commander of AST’s C Detachment for eight years, which provided service to Alaska’s western coast and a significant portion of the state’s rural communities. Col. Wilson is a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy and is President of the FBINA Associates in Alaska. Col. Wilson has visited a significant number of the rural communities in Alaska.

on with their lives, as if nothing happened. They wave and smirk and laugh at us at gas stations. If we confront them, we will be slapped with a restraining order, not the people that took away our beloved Preston. As all small towns have a rumor mill and lots of gossip flying, I know I only hear half of it. But the parts I am hearing are truly disturbing. It is hard not to shut it out, it is hard not to crawl under a rock. We also have to live our daily lives. With so much time gone by, it is the NO information from officials that is causing the hysteria and the rumor mills flying. The community is scared, angry, nervous. Rumors of a “vigilante group” that is out to get the suspects has been whispered several times to different members of our family. We understand that investigations take time. That things need to be done correctly so that there are no mistakes, and

these people do not walk away free. But they’ve been walking, since August 25.They are getting married and getting jobs. Hanging out on school grounds with middle and high school students. What does that say to our kids? How do I explain this to my child? A Family member was told that there is ONE officer assigned to this case. That the police budget does not have money for another officer. I was told by a trooper today that he knows nothing about the case, and that he and the other troopers are wondering what is happening with the case as well. AT WHAT POINT DOES THIS CASE GO TO THE TROOPERS? TO THE FBI? And we sit and wait. We wait and hold our tongues, and say “no comment” and pray that there will be answers. Please help us. We are struggling living day to day, just trying to keep it together. — Brooke Andrews

Justice for Preston To the police chief and Seward police department; Alaska Attorney General and District Attorneys; Alaska State Troopers My name is Brooke Andrews, I am an Aunt of Preston Atwood. I am writing this letter to convey to you the seriousness and the urgency of which our family and the community needs some answers. In three days, it will be two months since Preston‘s disappearance and finding of his body. We have had a memorial, which in normal circumstances would help for closure and for people to move on. We are not allowed that grace. We drive down the road to the post office and see the people that we know killed our family member. We see them in the grocery store, even work at the grocery stores now. We see them at the coffee stand, we see them getting auto parts, carrying

Most states not giving driver’s license data to feds By Mike Schneider Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — An effort by the U.S. Census Bureau to collect state driver’s license records as part of President Donald Trump’s order to gather citizenship information has been a bust so far. As of Wednesday, the vast majority of state motor vehicle agencies had not agreed to share their records with the bureau, according to an Associated Press survey of the 50 states. The effort over the past couple of months has alarmed civil rights groups, which see it as part of a backdoor move by the Trump administration to reduce the political power of minorities. ® In August, the bureau began requesting five years’ worth of

driver’s license records, promising the information would be kept confidential. The effort began after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Trump’s administration plan to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, and the president instead ordered citizenship data compiled through federal and state administrative records. At least 13 states have refused to share the driver’s license data, 17 are still deciding what to do, and 17 haven’t yet received a request, according to the AP survey. Three states didn’t respond to multiple AP queries. Republican and Democratic states alike have said no, citing privacy concerns and prohibitions* in state law. “Philosophically, we believe the

information in the database doesn’t belong to us. It belongs to the people who it pertains to,” Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap said. “It’s not ours to give away.” Two of the biggest states, California and New York, haven’t received requests yet. Three more of the top five most populous states — Texas, Florida and Pennsylvania — are deciding how to respond. Census Bureau officials had no immediate comment. Many states got calls or emails similar to one from a Census Bureau official asking an Arkansas Driver Services official if she had time to discuss the bureau’s “new and exciting project.” Scott Hardin, a spokesman for the Arkansas agency, said: “We are currently working to determine

whether the requested information is eligible for release.” Utah officials turned down the request because state law says personal data can be shared only for public safety reasons, said Marissa Cote, a spokeswoman for the Department of Public Safety in the Republican-leaning state. Democratic-leaning Nevada also declined. “We value our residents’ privacy and hesitate to release records in bulk,” said Kevin Malone, a spokesman for the motor vehicle agency. States that haven’t decided how to respond said they were researching the legal and privacy implications. In issuing driver’s licenses, most states require documents such as a birth certificate that would reflect citizenship or require that

recipients be either citizens or in the U.S. legally. The American Civil Liberties Union has urged states to turn the Census Bureau down. The ACLU and other civil rights groups say the requests are part of an overall strategy by the Trump administration to encourage states to use counts of citizens only, as opposed to total population, when redrawing state and local electoral districts. Such a move could make districts older, whiter and more Republican. “This endeavor appears to be part of a scheme motivated by an unconstitutional discriminatory purpose to dilute the political power of communities of color,” said Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project.

on promises to clean up corruption, Zelenskiy’s first major foreign policy test came not from his enemy Russia, but rather from the country’s most important ally, the United States. The May 7 meeting included two of his top aides, Andriy Yermak and Andriy Bogdan, the people said. Also in the room was Andriy Kobolyev, head of the state-owned natural gas company Naftogaz, and Amos Hochstein, an American who sits on the Ukrainian company’s supervisory board. Hochstein is a former diplomat who advised Biden on Ukraine matters during the Obama administration. Zelenskiy’s office in Kyiv did not respond to messages on Wednesday seeking comment. The White House would not comment on whether Trump demanded an investigation in the April 21 call. The White House has offered only a bare-bones public readout on the April call, saying Trump urged Zelenskiy and the Ukrainian people to implement reforms, increase prosperity and “root out corruption.”

In the intervening months, Trump and his proxies have frequently used the word “corruption” to reference the monthslong efforts to get the Ukrainians to investigate Democrats. Trump has said he would release a transcript of the first call, but the White House had no comment Wednesday on when, or if, that might happen. After news broke that a White House whistleblower had filed a complaint about his July 25 call with Zelenskiy, Trump said the conversation was “perfect” and that he had asked his Ukrainian counterpart to do “whatever he can in terms of corruption because the corruption is massive.” During the call, Trump asked Zelenskiy for “a favor,” requesting an investigation into a conspiracy theory related to a Democratic computer server hacked during the 2016 election campaign. Trump also pushed Zelenskiy to investigate Biden and his son. Trump then advised Zelenskiy that Giuliani and

Attorney General Bill Barr would be contacting him about the request, according to a summary of the called released by the White House. Within days, Giuliani flew to Madrid to meet privately with Yermak, Zelenskiy’s aide who was in the May 7 meeting. Trump has denied that an investigation of Biden was a condition for releasing military aid as a quid pro quo. But on Tuesday, the senior U.S. diplomat in Ukraine at the time, Ambassador William Taylor, starkly contradicted the president, saying that Trump had demanded that everything Zelenskiy wanted, including the aid and a White House meeting, was conditional on a public vow that he would open an investigation. Taylor also detailed multiple previously undisclosed diplomatic interactions between Trump’s envoys and senior Ukrainian officials in which the president’s demand to investigate the Bidens in exchange for American aid was clear.

Nats crush Astros to take 2-0 World Series lead By Kristie Rieken AP Sports Writer

HOUSTON (AP) — Stephen Strasburg’s time had come. Famously held out of the postseason seven years ago, Strasburg delivered on the biggest stage of all Wednesday night. The r ight-hander outpitched fellow ace Justin Verlander, overcoming a shaky start to help the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 12-3 for a commanding 2-0 lead in the World Series. Strasburg went six innings to earn the win — and a group hug in the dugout when he was done on the mound. “They keep squeezing me a little harder every time,” he said. “That’s OK.” Kurt Suzuki hit a tiebreaking homer in what became a messy six-run seventh inning, and the Nationals headed back home to Washington for the next two games — three if needed. Adam Eaton paraded around the bases pointing to the Houston crowd after a late home run as the Nationals won their eighth in a row. They’ve won 18 of 20 overall dating back to the regular season, with the last two over

AL Cy Young Award favorites Gerrit Cole and Verlander. Game 3 is Friday night when Aníbal Sánchez opposes Houston’s Zack Greinke in the first World Series game in the nation’s capital since 1933. “Probably going to be a little frigid, might be a little cold, so bring your jackets and your beanies,” said slugger Anthony Rendon, who hit a two-run double in the first inning. The 31-year-old Strasburg had waited years for this chance. Back in 2012, he was about two years removed from Tommy John surgery when Nationals brass decided protecting his elbow was more important than pitching him in the playoffs, so he was shut down late in a season full of promise. Making his Series debut, Strasburg allowed a two-run homer to Alex Bregman in the first before throwing five shutout innings to improve 4-0 this postseason. He allowed seven hits and struck out seven. Nationals manager Dave Martinez was asked what’s allowed Strasburg to be so good this postseason. “One, he has the confidence to do it and two, he’s become a premier pitcher, a big-game pitcher,” Martinez

said. “He doesn’t get rattled.” Verlander, so good in the regular season, fell to 0-5 in six World Series starts. He gave up seven hits and four runs, and was lifted after walking a batter following Suzuki’s home run. Verlander led the majors with 21 wins this season and struck out a career-high 300 to reach 3,000 in his career. He has a World Series ring, MVP and Cy Award trophies, and three no-hitters on his resume. He struck out six to become the career leader in postseason Ks with 202 — another impressive statistic on a stellar resume that’s still missing that elusive World Series win. “Obviously it’s magnified in the World Series when you’re not clicking on all cylinders,” Verlander said. Their wins against Houston’s best pitchers turned the underdog Nationals into heavy favorites to take the title. Only three of the previous 25 teams to lose the first two games at home under the 2-3-2 format have come back to win the Series. No one has done it since the 1996 New York Yankees. “I wish I was a betting man, but I’m not,” Martinez said. “I don’t really believe in that stuff. ... We’re here because the boys never gave up.” But the Astros insist the

tough start hasn’t dampened their confidence. “We have a really good team,” manager AJ Hinch said. “Clearly, the Nats have outplayed us — bottom line. They came into our building and played two really good games. We’re going to have to try to sleep off the latter third of this game.” Added shortstop Carlos Correa on digging out of the early hole: “If there is a team

out there that can do it, it’s us.” Things went wrong immediately for Verlander when he walked leadoff man Trea Turner on four pitches. Eaton, who homered in the eighth, singled before Rendon, the Houston native who said he’d certainly have 100 friends and family members at Minute Maid Park for each game, knocked a ball off the wall in left field to put the Nationals up 2-0.

“This is my city. I love Houston,” Rendon said. “We were going to try to just steal one game and we just happened to steal two, and we’ve got to take care of business at home.” Long after most players had left the field and only a handful of Nationals, including Rendon, were left, a small but boisterous crowd of Washington fans assembled behind their dugout.

Irving explodes for 50, but Timberwolves beat Nets NEW YORK (AP) — Kyrie Irving scored 50 points in a record-setting Nets debut, but lost his balance and missed a potential winning shot that allowed the Minnesota Timberwolves to pull out a 127-126 victory over Brooklyn in overtime Wednesday night. Karl-Anthony Towns had 36 points and 14 rebounds for Minnesota, and Andrew Wiggins added 21 points, including the go-ahead basket with 1:19 remaining. Irving had the ball in his hands with a chance to cap his dazzling debut with a victory, following a Nets timeout. He ran the clock down and then began his drive, but lost his balance near the foul line. He retained his dribble, got up and shot, but his jumper missed. After signing with the Nets in July, Irving broke Kiki Vandeweghe’s record for most points by a player in his first game with a team. Vandeweghe scored 47 points for Portland at Kansas City on Oct. 27, 1984. Irving finished with eight rebounds and seven assists. Caris

LeVert added 20 points.

NUGGETS 108, TRAIL BLAZERS 100 PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Nikola Jokic had 20 points and 13 rebounds despite sitting much of the first half because of foul trouble, and Denver spoiled the opening game of Portland’s 50th season. Will Barton added 19 points for the Nuggets, who also snapped Portland’s 18-game winning streak in home openers, the longest streak in league history. Damian Lillard led the Blazers with 32 points and eight assists, and Hassan Whiteside had 16 points and 19 rebounds in his Portland debut.

76ERS 107, CELTICS 93 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joel Embiid had 15 points and 13 rebounds, Ben Simmons scored 24 points and Philadelphia beat Boston. Gordon Hayward led the Celtics

Hedman scores late, Lightning beat Pens TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Victor Hedman scored a power-play goal with 56.8 seconds remaining to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night. The defenseman scored from just inside the blue line off Steven Stamkos’ pass from the left circle. Alex Killorn and Cedric Paquette also scored, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 37 saves, including a pair of in-close chances in the final seconds of regulation. One of them, taken by Kris Letang, required a lengthy video review before it was confirmed that the puck go in. Brandon Tanev and Jake Guentzel scored and Tristan Jarry stopped 45 shots for the Penguins. Sidney Crosby picked up an assist and moved past Norm Ullman into sole possession of 40th place on the NHL career points list with 1,230. The injury-depleted Penguins are without forwards Evgeni Malkin, Alex Galchenyuk, Nick Bjugstad and Bryan Rust, and

defensemen Brian Dumoulin and Zach Trotman. Malkin has 23 goals and 51 points in 38 games against Tampa Bay.

SENATORS 5, RED WINGS 2 OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Anthony Duclair scored twice and Ottawa snapped a four-game skid and extended Detroit’s losing streak to six. Chris Tierney, Mark Borowiecki and Jean-Gabriel Pageau also scored to help the Senators improve to 2-6-1. Anders Nilsson made 34 saves for his first victory of the season. Darren Helm and Tyler Bertuzzi scored for Detroit, and Jonathan Bernier stopped 33 shots. The Red Wings are 3-7-0. After Detroit scored twice in a 1:40 span early in the second period to take a 2-1 lead, Borowiecki tied it at 3:15 and Pageau made it a two-goal game with a shorthanded goal at 5:27. Duclair scored late in the second and added an empty-netter in the third.

with 25 points. Jayson Tatum had 21. Kemba Walker scored 12 points on 4-of-18 shooting in his Boston debut, and Al Horford had 16 in his first game with the 76ers.

MAVERICKS 108, WIZARDS 100 DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic had 34 points and nine rebounds and Kristaps Porzingis scored 23 points in the European pair’s long-awaited first game together, leading Dallas past Washington. Porzingis missed his first four shots before taking a break and coming back to score nine points in the final 2:45 of the first quarter. The 7-foot-3 Latvian acquired in a blockbuster deal with the New York Knicks before the trading deadline last season was 7 of 16 from the field. Doncic and Porzingis traded long 3-pointers throughout the game, finishing 7 of 16 between them (4 of 9 for Doncic, 3 of 7 for Porzingis). Doncic was 12 of 19 overall.

Pigskin Pick ‘Em: Seeing ghosts and sitting in the rain By Nolan Rose For the Peninsula Clarion

Week seven in the NFL felt a whole lot like the first six weeks of the season, and if you’ve been following this column, you know that’s not a good thing. We got off to a positive start last Thursday when the Kansas City Chiefs covered in Denver, despite losing star QB Patrick Mahomes to injury. The week ended on a high note when the New England Ghosts spooked the New York Jets into six turnovers and an easy cover. It was everything else in between that left something to be desired. The week resulted in a second consecutive 6-8 mark against the spread. That leaves our season total at an unsightly 42-61. Las Vegas is winning. Bad Beat of The Week: How about my Sunday? Traveled all the way down to Seattle to sit in the rain for three hours and watch Ravens QB Lamar Jackson run circles around the Seahawks defense. Fun!

Redskins @ VIKINGS -16 Minnesota is on a bit of a heater entering this Thursday night game. The Vikings have outscored their previous three opponents by exactly 16 points per game, the same number as the spread, and carry a tidy 3-0 mark at home this season. The Redskins, by every measure possible, are awful at football. Vikings win 30-9

Seahawks @ Falcons (no line)

NBA City.

Tennessee got a bit of a boost last week replacing Marcus Mariota at QB with ex-Dolphin Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill passed for over 300 yards and two scores leading the Titans to a win over the Chargers. The Titans have only allowed 16 points per game this season. If the offense gets going, this team could surprise. Titans win 24-21

EAGLES @ Bills +2 I’m not ready to buy stock in Buffalo. The 5-1 Bills have benefitted greatly from a timely schedule. I don’t think Bills QB Josh Allen can take advantage of Philly’s weak pass defense. The Eagles have lost two straight games, including last week’s embarrassment in Dallas. Expect the Eagles to bounce back in Buffalo. Eagles win 24-17

Broncos @ COLTS -6.5 Does Donkey QB Joe Flacco have a pulse? Is he still alive? The guy looks like he absolutely does not give a bleep! It must be infuriating to watch for Donkey faithful. How long until Denver fans start calling for John Elway’s job? In a battle of horses, take the younger horse, with a brighter future. Colts win 30-14

Chargers @ BEARS -4 What happened to San Diego? The 2-5 Lightning Bolts were a preseason darling, but a flurry of injuries and contract disputes have derailed their season. Da Bears aren’t fairing much better at 3-3, led by the woefully average Mitchell Trubisky. Both teams desperately need a win, neither seems capable. We’re siding with the home team. Bears win 27-14

Bengals @ RAMS -13.5 The Bengals are a dark-horse pick to overtake the Miami Dolphins in the race for the number one pick in next year’s draft. The Jungle Kitty’s defense is toothless and de-clawed. Cincinnati surrenders over a hundred more yards per game than the Rams. This could get ugly. Rams win 31-7

Giants @ LIONS -6.5 Both teams are riding three-game losing streaks going into this meaningless contest. The Lions traded starting safety Quandre Diggs to the Seahawks earlier this week, a move widely panned by teammates on Lions Twitter. How will the team respond on Sunday? Full disclosure, I have no clue who is going to cover this game. Lions win 28-20

Mitchell scored 22 points in the second half. Bojan Bogdanovic added 16 points, and Royce O’Neale chipped in with 14 for the Jazz. Rudy Gobert grabbed 14 rebounds.

Bucs @ TITANS -2.5

With Falcons QB Matt Ryan’s injury status a mystery, there is no line listed for this game at the time of this writing. Finally, a game I can’t lose!

CARDINALS @ Saints -10 The New Orleans Saints have survived star QB Drew Brees’ injury by winning close games. Five of six Saints victories have been decided by a touchdown or less. The team’s largest margin of victory is 11 points. The Desert Bats have won three

HORNETS 126, BULLS 125 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Rookie PJ Washington hit seven 3-pointers and scored

straight games coming into this matchup, and two of those have been on the road. Saints win a close one 23-20

the most ridiculous stat I’ve ever seen. Patriots win 35-9

Jets @ JAGS -6

Oakland is a respectful 3-3 on the season, but those three losses have all been by 18 points or more. When the Raiders lose, they lose big. Houston is coming off a disappointing loss to their rival Colts in Indy. The Texans can’t afford to drop this game to keep pace in the division, not with the Colts hosting the hapless Donkeys. Texans win 30-17

Nobody in their right mind would bet on the Paper Airplanes after the 33-0 shellacking they took on Monday night. Of course, that means the Jets will cover this week. Still, the only play here is siding with the Jags at home. Will Jacksonville deploy the same “Ghost” coverage the Patriots used last week against the Jets with so much success? Jags win 28-14

Panthers @ 49ERS -5.5 You won’t find two hotter teams in the NFL, outside of Boston, than the Panthers and 49ers. Carolina got rolling after losing QB Cam Newton to injury. Another win for his replacement this week and things could get really messy in Charlotte when Newton is cleared to return. Fans of drama are going to be disappointed, the Niners are just too good. 49ers win 20-13

Browns @ PATRIOTS -13 The Patriots have benefitted incredibly by playing the weakest schedule of any team in the NFL. The Patriots are also the best team in the NFL. Both of those statements can be true. Excluding special teams and offensive scores allowed, the Patriots defense has outscored the opposing offenses they’ve faced this season 20-18. That’s quite possibly

27 points to help Charlotte open the post-Kemba Walker era with a victory over Chicago. The Hornets made 23 3-pointers, the most in

Raiders @ TEXANS -6.5

PACKERS @ Chiefs +4.5 Kansas City held up last week in Denver when Patrick Mahomes was lost to injury, but facing an Aaron Rodgers-led Packers offense is different challenge. Rodgers appears to be finding his groove, last week the future hall-of-famer accounted for six touchdowns. Half that will be enough to cover in KC. Packers win 24-17

DOLPHINS @ Steelers -14.5 The Dolphins have been messing around the last couple weeks. If they keep up their improved play, their winless record will be in jeopardy. We all know the Canned Tuna need to keep losing to keep pace with the Bengals and stay in front of the fast charging Redskins and Falcons. Only the Dolphins could screw this up. Steelers win a close one 26-20

‘Rivers of Ice’ exhibit ‘certainly timely’ Intimate look at glaciers on display at the Pratt Museum in Homer

By Michael Armstrong Homer News


s part of the Pratt Museum’s mission to strengthen relationships between people and place, art exhibits there often make some connection to the land or Kachemak Bay’s natural history. In that sense, Kathy Smith’s solo art show, “Rivers of Ice,” an exploration in paintings of Alaska glaciers, hits its mark like the terminus of a glacier marching to sea. At the heart of her show is the idea that not only are Alaska’s glaciers changing, but they’re fading away. “It certainly is timely,” Smith said Tuesday. “It seems like all the science lately has been dealing with climate change in one way or another. … Every time I looked at a newspaper or online, there was always something about ice melting somewhere.” Her first Pratt solo show, “Rivers of Ice” uses a lot of the tricks in Smith’s toolbox to examine glaciers. Active in the Homer art scene for more than 25 years, Smith has become known for her mastery of encaustics, the ancient art form that uses melted wax and pigments as paint. One of the founding members of the Homer Life Drawing Group, Smith gets back to those roots with several portraits set in glacial landscapes.

She also has created paper, wax and oil tapestries that in their movement evoke the slow movement of glaciers. And like a good Alaskan, Smith paints landscapes memorable for her command of color and light. “I was meditating the while time I was doing the show,” Smith said. “Working on the paintings, I was thinking of them as living things, because they are. It’s very hard for me to explain.” Smith lived in Anchorage for five years in the 1950s when she was a child, and has memories of visiting Portage Glacier. “You could park in the parking lot and walk right up and practically touch the icebergs,” she said. “It was a lot different than it is now.” Smith didn’t come back to Alaska until 1968, when she stayed for six months, and didn’t come back for good until 1972. She met her husband, Maynard, at the downtown Book Cache, an Anchorage bookstore, and they moved to Homer in 1974. The daughter of a painter, Smith said, “I kind of picked it up from her.” She had painted in her youth, taking classes over the years, but didn’t start painting seriously until her children were grown. She has shown widely in both solo and group shows at Homer as well as statewide galleries.

Kathy Smith’s “Glacier Banner 3” (left) and “Root Glacier Swale” are featured in a showing through Dec. 28 at the Pratt Museum in Homer.

The idea of focusing on glaciers for a solo exhibit came out of paintings of glaciers she did for a group show in Anchorage. “For this show, I took a lot of photographs,” she said. “I went up on the glacier at McCarthy, the Kennicott and Root Glaciers. … I took a lot of pictures of my friends, of the ice, of the leaves on the ice — just different things.” The show also allowed her to get

back into painting in oils. “That’s been a favorite thing of mine,” she said. “Really, over the past few years I’ve been doing things in wax and mixed media, not too much brush work. I wanted to do brush work for this show.” “Rivers of Ice” takes a perspective from the intimate to the expansive. “Prayer Flags for Glaciers,” a series of prints — another one of her techniques — looks at those leaves

on the ice. “On the Root Glacier” shows a group exploring the ice. The way the figures spread out, with one person tiny and almost lost in the distance, gives a sense of the scale. The portraits respond to that “relationships between people and place” mission statement prompt. It’s a reminder that though Smith’s See glaciers, Page A10

In Scorsese and Coppola, Marvel meets formidable foes By Jake Coyle Associated Press

NEW YORK — It’s not exactly the stuff of “Stop the presses!” that some of the greatest filmmakers in the world have misgivings about the rise of the superhero film and its outsized place in our film culture. And yet recent critical comments by Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola have been greeted like entreaties to a prizefight, a battle royale. “In this corner, the box-office champion of the wooooorld, Marvel ‘The Incredible Hulk’ Studios! And in this corner, the 76-year-old maker of anguished Catholic epics and

crime-movie classics, Martin ‘TheRaging-Bull’ Scorsese!” Plenty of rumbling has followed since Scorsese, in a magazine interview earlier this month, suggested Marvel movies aren’t cinema but “something else” — theme park rides uninterested in “trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.” Coppola doubled down over the weekend, telling journalists in France, gathered to see him accept the Prix Lumiere, that Scorsese was not only right but that he didn’t go far enough. Marvel films, he said, are “despicable.” “He’s right because we expect to learn something from cinema, we

expect to gain something, some enlightenment, some knowledge, some inspiration,” said Coppola. Countless Marvel fans, like 19th century gentlemen whose honor had been offended, took up the cause on social media as if challenged to a duel. They were backed up by some of the premiere makers of Marvel movies, too, including “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn, “Avengers” director Joss Whedon and “Thor: Ragnarok” helmer Taika Waititi. Waititi wryly took the debate at face value, noting matter-of-factly, “It’s at the movies. It’s in cinemas.” And, of course, it’s not a real brouhaha until Ken Loach gets

involved. The 83-year-old British social realist joined the fracas, telling Sky News that Marvel movies are “a cynical exercise” and “commodities like hamburgers.” Many have been left praying that the heated argument will be joined, from beyond the grave, by past legends of cinema. What does Hitchcock make of “Spider-Man: Homecoming”? Would John Ford think “Endgame” too long? Despite the recent media storm, the referendum on Marvel has been going on for a decade. As much as the comic-book company’s most slavish followers would like to believe otherwise, not everyone is a fan. The way Marvel movies are made, assembly-line

style, is indeed a new evolution of the kind of studio control that has always played a role in Hollywood productions. It’s well known that directors are often approached for a Marvel film with a promise that the studio will take care of the action sequences, you just fill in the other bits. The overarching vision, mapped out by Marvel chief creative officer Kevin Feige, has succeeded, extravagantly. But even $20 billion in ticket sales is no match, really, for “The Godfather” or “Taxi Driver.” Though some would like to settle this squabble by measuring theatrical grosses , there are See marvel, Page A10


Corner Wasting Syndrome I heard the sea stars just started dying. Wasting away, wasting syndrome. Their vibrancy in the intertidal landscape Stained by foreboding white legions on their skin. Losing limbs, wasting syndrome. Until they can’t hold on The frigid waters melt them, into a pile of their former selves. With no chance to rebuild, to regrow now that all their limbs are gone they seep into the sea. Time will only hurt them. I was told time heals all wounds. What a terrible way to go, no one to blame for the loss of you. Wasted away, wasting syndrome. We used to see hundreds of them by now, They told me, my hands reaching out To touch a survivor of annihilation. I thought, damn, that’s eery and moved on. — By Kathleen S.

Realism of Harvard’s Glass Flowers still dazzles By Tracee M. Herbaugh Associated Press

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Tucked inside a museum on the Harvard University campus is a gallery teeming with plants so lifelike in appearance you’d be forgiven for swearing they’re real. But this foliage is glass — really old glass. There’s a red maple branch, for instance, that looks plucked from a Vermont tree during the fall peak season. There’s part of a budding cashew tree boasting two rustcolored cashew apples and drooping nutshells, each leaf vein and stem intricate in detail. These are only two examples of more than 4,300 individual glass models in the collection, which has at least 780 species from the plant kingdom represented. They are affectionately known as the “Glass Flowers,” or formally as the Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants. The detail and the anatomical exactness stuns onlookers like Erin Averill, a 26-year-old from Orange County, California, who was recently perusing the flowers. “My first thought was that they’d be similar to Dale Chihuly’s work,” she said. But the Glass Flowers are understated in color and size when compared to Chihuly’s colorful, often towering sculptures.

more meaningful metrics than box office. Filmmakers (not to mention many critics and many moviegoers) have long voiced alarm at Marvel’s brand of moviemaking. Steven Spielberg, you might remember, six years ago forecast Hollywood’s implosion because of the over-abundance of mega-budget movies. Spielberg (whose “Jaws” helped birth the modern blockbuster) has also pointed out that movie culture inevitably moves in cycles. “There will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the

“I’m really blown away by just how real they look and the level of skill demonstrated in the details,” Averill said. “This is really a lost art form.” The Glass Flowers date back to the 19th and early 20th centuries, and were intended to dazzle the public while educating botany students. They have been on display continuously at Harvard since 1893. This third-floor gallery at the Harvard Museum of Natural History is one of the institution’s most beloved — and most visited — treasures. The Glass Flowers helped draw about 300,000 people to campus last year, a significant number for a college museum situated in an urban area known for its art offerings. “I’ve been at the museum for three years and in that time I’ve counted visitors from 54 countries,” said Lewis Bushnell, a Cambridge resident who volunteers inside the gallery one day a week. In August, an array of rotting fruits, rendered in glass, was pulled from the storage room shelves. On display for the first time in 20 years is “Fruits in Decay,” a temporary exhibit until March 2020. Among the decaying lot is an apricot showing signs of brown rot caused by a fungus, a strawberry covered in mold, and a bruised pear, all in great detail.

The flowers’ story of origin is equal parts ingenuity and happenstance. In the 19th century, there was no reliable medium for modeling or preserving plants to study. Wax was used, but its temperature was always a concern. Plants could be pinned to papier mache boards, but over time the specimens’ shapes and colors often became distorted. This is when Harvard professor George Goodale heard of Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka, a father-son team of glass artists living outside Dresden, Germany. Goodale was aware of some small marine animals the Blaschka had made in glass. So he sailed across the Atlantic to speak to the artists, and commissioned his first glass model in 1886. The collection was completed almost 50 years later. Leopold, the father, died in 1895, but Rudolf finished the job, dying three years after completing the last flower. All the decaying fruits were Rudolf’s creations. “They worked from nature, so they knew and studied plants,” said Donald Pfister, a professor of systematic botany, and curator of Harvard’s Farlow Library and Herbarium of Cryptogamic Botany. Sometimes the creative process had the Blaschkas growing

specimens in their garden so they could examine the plant up close. “They informed themselves completely,” Pfister said. Early drawings, including a Canada lily from 1892, are part of the exhibit, as are many crosssections and dissections of all parts of a plant. Over time, some of the glass models have been retouched and repaired, but the flowers are largely the same as when first displayed. The temperature and humidity of the room where they are kept

hand in it if you want to keep good at it.” One painting, “Exit Glacier Tour, Late September,” shows a group of tourists in matching translucent ponchos near the toe of the glacier back when it was possible to walk up to it. In their white, ghostly garb the figures almost seem to be icebergs from the glacier. Smith said she painted that from a photograph she took. “They begged to be put on

the canvas,” she said. Smith also captures an aspect of glaciers that fascinate many: the amazing hues of blue, green and white as air bubbles get crushed out of compacting ice. Some paintings are studies of those colors. “It seemed as if there were really a lot of different colors,” Smith said of glaciers. “You can’t just say, ‘I’m going to use blue and white.’ There are many shades. I love color

— I missed using red, for instance. I tried to make it interesting for me and the viewer, to use more colors.” While many of her paintings are realistic, Smith didn’t want to make them too realistic. “A lot of the glaciers are dirty,” she said. “I couldn’t just make them ugly and melting. There’s a lot more to them. What’s the point of going if you’re only going to see the dirt?”

Western,” he told me. Even Christopher Nolan, whose Batman film “The Dark Knight” is widely considered the genre’s greatest triumph, has said he’s no longer interested in franchise movies given the way they’ve come to be manufactured. “The cinematic landscape has changed since I started making Batman films,” Nolan has said . “When we were doing the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy, I think it was easier for a filmmaker in the position I was in to express a more personal vision of what they wanted to do in a franchise property.” Marvel’s biggest supporters, I think, would grant part of the films’ appeal is that they all feel of one spandexwrapped piece. They’re so similar that even Gwyneth

Paltrow can’t remember which ones she’s in . That’s not to say that personal expression doesn’t filter into a Marvel movie. Just as in westerns (and noirs and musicals and any other genre ever churned out by Hollywood), filmmakers can craft something individual in even the most well-oiled factories. It would be hard to dismiss the cosmic anarchy of Gunn’s “Guardians” films, the spectacular sweep of Ryan Coogler’s Oscar-nominated “Black Panther” or the deconstructionist delight of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” But — and this is Scorsese and Coppola’s main point — there is so much more. As vast as Marvel’s “cinematic universe” is, it doesn’t hold a candle to the actual

cinematic universe. And they would like to divert some of the spotlight on Marvel elsewhere. “There’s a generation that thinks cinema is a blockbuster,” Scorsese told me in June when he was releasing his semi-fictional documentary “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story.” Scorsese was most bothered by the sight of large, multiscreen cinemas playing one movie (“Endgame”) on 11 of its 12 screens. “We have to fight back at this practice of overwhelming the market with the blockbuster,” said Scorsese. “The — how should I put it? — the regular film, that’s being edged out. It’s got to go someplace. It has to go someplace because you know why? There are people that are going to continue to make them.” The concern for the suffocation of “the regular film,” the non-blockbuster, is justified. Comic-book movies, sequels and remakes make up nine of this year’s top films at the box office (the lone exception is Jordan Peele’s “Us”) and that’s been roughly the case for years now. Netflix and other streaming services are, for now, bankrolling a large percentage of the industry’s larger budget original films, including Scorsese’s upcoming “The Irishman.” Some have sought to portray Scorsese and Coppola as out of touch, too old to be connected to the pop culture of today. But it would be hard to find two filmmakers who have stayed more intrepid with age. Few

Today in History Today is Thursday, Oct. 24, the 297th day of 2019. There are 68 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 24, 1940, the 40-hour work week went into effect under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. On this date: In 1861, the first transcontinental telegraph message was sent by Chief Justice Stephen J. Field of California from San Francisco to President Abraham Lincoln in Washington, D.C., over a line built by the Western Union Telegraph Co. In 1931, the George Washington Bridge, connecting New York and New Jersey, was officially dedicated (it opened to traffic the next day). In 1945, the United Nations officially came into existence as its charter took effect. In 1962, a naval quarantine of Cuba ordered by President John F. Kennedy went into effect during the missile crisis. In 1972, Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, who’d broken Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947, died in Stamford, Connecticut, at age 53. In 1989, former television evangelist Jim Bakker (BAY’-kur) was sentenced by a judge in Charlotte, N.C., to 45 years in prison for fraud and conspiracy. (The sentence was later reduced to eight years; it was further reduced to four for good behavior.) In 1991, “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry died in Santa Monica, California, at age 70. In 1992, the Toronto Blue Jays became the first non-U.S. team to win the World Series as they defeated the Atlanta Braves, 4-3, in Game 6. In 1997, in Arlington, Virginia, former NBC sportscaster Marv Albert was spared a jail sentence after a grudging courtroom apology to the woman he’d bitten during a sexual romp. In 2002, authorities apprehended Army veteran John Allen Muhammad and teenager Lee Boyd Malvo near Myersville, Maryland, in the Washington-area sniper attacks. (Malvo was later sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole; Muhammad was sentenced to death and executed in 2009.) In 2005, civil rights icon Rosa Parks died in Detroit at age 92. In 2008, singer-actress Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother were found slain in their Chicago home; the body of her 7-year-old nephew was found three days later. (Hudson’s estranged brother-in-law was convicted of the murders and sentenced to life in prison.) Ten years ago: Pakistani officials announced that their soldiers had captured Kotkai, the strategically located hometown of Pakistan’s Taliban chief, Hakimullah Mehsud (hah-kee-MUH’-lah meh-SOOD’), and one of his top deputies, after fierce fighting. Five years ago: Jaylen Fryberg, a student at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Washington state, fatally shot four friends he had invited to lunch and wounded a fifth teen before killing himself. A coordinated militant assault on an army checkpoint in the Sinai Peninsula killed 31 Egyptian troops. Actress Marcia Strassman, who’d played Gabe Kaplan’s wife, Julie, on the 1970s sitcom “Welcome Back, Kotter,” died in Sherman Oaks, California, at age 66. One year ago: Authorities said they had intercepted pipe bombs packed with shards of glass that had been sent to several prominent Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama; none of the bombs went off, and nobody was hurt. Saudi Arabia’s crown prince told a business forum in his country that the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi (jah-MAHL’ khahr-SHOHK’-jee) at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul was “heinous” and “painful to all Saudis;” some business leaders had pulled out of the conference after Turkish reports said a member of the prince’s entourage was involved in the killing of Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi royal family.

The cashew branch resides next to a mango and some poison ivy because they’re family. The Glass Flowers are still as relevant as they were decades ago, said Jenny Brown, manager of the collection. “People visit the Glass Flowers once and they bring their friends and relatives back to see it the next time,” she said. “They are very much loved.”

Along with “Rivers of Ice,” the Pratt has been offering programs related to glaciers. Last week, geologist and ecologist Ed Berg did a talk, “Grewingk Glacier: Then and Now,” about how the glacier has changed. At 6:30 p.m. Nov. 19, the Homer Youth String Orchestra Club does a fall concert and a screening of “Blue Ice,” a concert filmed at Grewingk Glacier. “Rivers of Ice” remains on exhibit through Dec. 28.

Smith said reception to her show has been strong. “I was at the library and three or four people said to me, ‘I haven’t gotten to see your show yet, but three or four people have told me I have to see it.

people have done more to champion classic cinema from all corners of the globe than Scorsese, co-founder of the vital preservation and restoration non-profit Film Foundation. And Coppola, who has tried to unearth a new medium he calls “live cinema,” remains more experimental than most filmmakers a third his age. “I feel now we have this bifurcated cinema in our country being of independent films where we have the most wonderful wealth of talent and then the industry films which are pretty much superhero films,” Coppola told me ahead of the release of his “Apocalypse Now: Final Cut” in August. “One has too much money — the studio, Marvel comic-type movies.

The budget for the craft service of one of those superhero films could more than be a budget for some of these brilliant young — and not only young — filmmakers. That is a tragedy.” The irony of the rolling debate kicked off by Scorsese’s comments is that we’re, again, just talking about Marvel movies. But for Marvel moviegoers willing to hear them out, you won’t find better guides to the wider world of cinema. Scorsese, in particular, is a walkingcompendium of film references, spilling passionaterecommendations everywhere he goes. You might even say he’s a fan.

partners’ families take priority over us. I feel bad about it, but I understand that this is just how it is. We feel unimportant in their lives. When our anniversary comes around, they don’t bother to acknowledge it. (They do acknowledge our birthdays.) I always make sure I don’t miss an occasion by calling or sending a card.

children are not mind readers. They appear to be very much centered on themselves and their own lives. TELL them how hurt you are when they overlook your anniversaries. If nothing changes, the next time you are hit up for money, say no. If you do, it may lessen their sense of entitlement, which would be doing them a bigger favor than dispensing dough like an ATM machine. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH Clearly, some days are more rewarding than others. No matter what you get involved in, the results seem less than what you were aiming for. In hindsight, you might have proceeded in a different manner. Tonight: Plan for an early bedtime.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH You could be pushing someone far more than you are


GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You have a lot on your plate. Opt to clear out as much as you can, yet give some thought to your options. Remain sensitive to all the possibilities. Ask for help if need be. Tonight: Make it an early night.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Reach out for someone you care a lot about. You often do not have time for a discussion. You still might not today, but you will feel so good as a result, you recognize that it was well worth taking the extra time. Tonight: Do not allow a controlling person to get to you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Remember how strongwilled you are and do not be intimidated by another person’s demands. This person could be someone you often work with or deal with. How you support yourself and the words you choose could be important. Tonight: Buy a treat on the way home.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

CHILL OUT Dear Heloise: Before I freeze an item that is at

Rubes | Leigh Rubin

HHH Reach out for someone who might be a little more mellow than you are at this time. He or she can move a problem and eradicate it — if you want. At the moment, your mind does not seem to anchor on details. Tonight: As you like.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Your intuition will guide you financially if you listen to it. You could easily go overboard wondering what needs to happen next. Stay present in the moment and worry less. Tonight: Get some extra ZZZ’s.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH A partner could be demanding without intending to. He or she might not feel up to snuff or this person could be preoccupied with a personal issue. Be kind and indulge him or her, as you might want done for you. Tonight: Get past a problem; it’s time for a discussion.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Emphasize what you want. Though this desire might not appear immediately, you are beginning the process of manifesting. Do not let a sense of negativity get to you. Move out of the immediate setting. Tonight: Where your friends can be found.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You could be quite challenged by a partner or close associate. He or she often does not get the breadth of your ideas. You cannot get why this person fusses and criticizes so much. Just accept his or her behavior. Tonight: Flow with a situation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH You might not realize it, but all eyes are on you. Assume your role as a natural leader. Others will follow your suggestions with ease. You might be observing more than others are aware of. Tonight: A must appearance.

hints from heloise

Dear Readers: Want a cheap and effective way to scrub out your kitchen or bathroom sink? Reach for one of my favorite kitchen go-tos, baking soda. Sprinkle a generous amount in an empty sink and add enough water to make a paste. Scrub gently with a damp sponge throughout, up the sides and in the drain. Rinse thoroughly. Baking soda is a staple in my arsenal of cleaning goods. It’s cheap, safe and readily available. I’ve compiled a collection of my favorite baking soda hints and recipes into a handy pamphlet. Would you like to receive one? It’s easy. Visit www.Heloise. com to order, or send $5, along with a stamped (70 cents), self-addressed, long envelope, to: Heloise/ Baking Soda, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Amp up the cleaning power by adding a glug of hot vinegar! — Heloise

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

HHHH You could be far more willful at present than many other people think. You find that a child or loved one seems remote. A creative idea does not appeal to you. Let a stalemate continue for a while longer. Tonight: Doing your thing.

room temperature, I put it in the refrigerator and chill it thoroughly before it goes in the freezer. Freezing an item at room temperature warms the items around it in the freezer and takes more time to freeze. — Mary H., via email Mary, how right you are! Placing a room-temperature item in the freezer can raise the temperature of the foods around it, disrupting the freezing environment. By the way, a full freezer saves money; the cold air doesn’t have to work as hard to circulate. Label all foods in the freezer, or else you may wind up being a detective, with a big mystery on your hands! — Heloise

TURN, TURN, TURN Dear Heloise: I was having difficulty opening a bottle of water when my aunt told me to turn the bottle, not the cap. Worked great! For the record, my aunt is 87 years old, and I am 76. Just shows that you’re never too old to learn ... or teach! — Judy P., Boerne, Texas

This year, you approach your commitments with an unusual amount of determination. As a result, you achieve great results. If single, you might meet someone who makes you believe “this is it.” Date for a while and you could change your mind. Remember, there are plenty of fish in the sea. If attached, the two of you look toward positive changes and fulfilling a special goal. For some of you, it could be a new addition to your life. Others will finally feel as if they have reached a new level in their relationship. VIRGO pitches in whenever they can.
