Homicide probe findings sent to District Attorney By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Nearly two months after a Seward man was found dead, Seward Police have forwarded the findings from their homicide investigation to the Kenai District Attorney’s Office for review. The disappearance of Preston Atwood, 21, was ruled a homicide by police on Sept. 19, about three weeks after he was first reported missing on Aug. 28. The missing persons bulletin indicated that

Atwood had last been seen on Aug. 25 at Fourth of July Beach and again on Aug. 27 near the entrance to First Lake Park. Atwood was reportedly using crutches on Aug. 25 but was not during the Aug. 27 sighting. Seward Police Chief Tom Clemons did not comment on where the body was found or whether any suspects were interviewed as part of the investigation. When asked about the length of time between the body being located and the findings being sent

to the DA’s office, Clemons said that both the limited resources of the department and his intention to “protect the integrity” of everyone involved were factors in the duration of the investigation. “This is a small community, and (Atwood’s) family are friends of mine,” Clemons said. “I’ve been doing this for almost 50 years, and one thing I know is that you can’t rush these things. When you rush, you make mistakes.” Clemons told the Clarion on Thursday that the entire police

force, himself included, were involved in locating the body and conducting the investigation, but only one officer was responsible for compiling the findings from the investigation and preparing it for the DA’s office. The Seward Police Department has a total of 10 officers on staff, Clemons said. In Alaska, a defendant’s right to a speedy trial requires that their case be tried within 120 days of an arrest being made or charges being filed. Clemons said that his department

Ferry to be mothballed JUNEAU, Alaska — A state ferry will be put into storage in Ketchikan because there’s no money to repair it. The Alaska Marine Highway System announced Thursday that the Malaspina will be placed in “unmanned, long-term layup status” Jan. 10. The Malaspina will end revenue service Dec. 2 when it reaches Ketchikan. The 56-year-old Malaspina is a 408-foot mainline ferry. The Malaspina this winter was scheduled for overhaul but a preliminary investigation revealed the need for extensive steel replacement. Ferry officials say the estimated $16 million repair cost exceeds the available budget. Ferry officials say there will be no impact on the system schedule. They also say no long-term decisions have been regarding the Malaspina’s future.

Passenger dies when SUV flips JUNEAU, Alaska — A passenger in a sport utility vehicle died when it flipped and landed in a Juneau ditch filled with water. Juneau police say the 47-year-old man was trapped in part of the SUV that was submerged. He died inside the SUV. Names of the passenger and the 30-year-old driver were not immediately released. Police shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday took a call on the crash on the Glacier Highway and found the small SUV on its roof in 3 feet of water. Police say the driver had been at an Auke Bay liquor establishment and had picked up the passenger to give him a ride. Police obtained a search warrant to sample the driver’s blood alcohol content. The driver was See news, Page A15

wanted to ensure the case was fully put together without being under any time constraints, which is why no suspects have yet been arrested in relation to the case. Clemons said he was satisfied with the investigation his officers conducted and “felt good” about the case moving forward. The onus is now on the District Attorney to decide whether to press charges. Kenai District Attorney Scot Leaders did not respond to a phone call from the Clarion requesting comment on the case.

called off the ground and local search for Murnane. Murnane, 38, has been missing from her Main Street home since last Thursday. Police have not given up trying to locate the Homer woman, but have shifted their focus from a local to a statewide search. Based on ground and air searches, and scent tracking by search and rescue dogs, police have ruled out that Murnane is still in the Homer area and have expanded the search. “Our current belief is she was picked up sometime Thursday

Anchorage will be the location for the Alaska Board of Fisheries 2020 Upper Cook Inlet Finfish meeting. The Board of Fisheries voted on the location site at the end of their two-day work session in Anchorage, Thursday. The vote was 4-3 in favor of locating the regulatory meeting in Anchorage in 2020. Board members Märit Carlson-Van Dort, Gerad Godfrey and Fritz Johnson opposed having the meeting in Anchorage. Johnson said it’s been long overdue that the meeting be held in Kenai. The meeting has never been held in the Matanuska Susitna Borough and was last held on the Kenai Peninsula in 1999. In an unexpected vote in January, the Alaska Board of Fisheries decided to move the 2020 regulatory meeting from the Kenai Peninsula to Anchorage. The meeting was originally going to be held in Anchorage, but a March 2018 vote moved the 2020 meeting to the Kenai-Soldotna area, and established a policy that rotated the Upper Cook Inlet Finfish meetings between Anchorage,

Where is Anesha Murnane? Homer woman remains missing; search widens. By Michael Armstrong Homer News

In the ongoing effort to find missing Homer woman Anesha “Duffy” Murnane, Homer Police on Wednesday released a security camera image showing her leaving her Main Street apartment at 12:13 p.m. last Thursday, Oct. 17. Police said they believe Murnane was heading on foot to an appointment at an East End Road address.

In a Facebook post, police asked anyone with home security cameras, RING cameras, game cameras or other devices to check for images between 12:13 to 12:50 p.m. on Oct. 17 that might have shown her walking along Lee Drive, Herndon Drive, lower Svedlund Street, lower Kachemak Way, East Fairview Avenue, and Pioneer Avenue to Lake Street. Police have canvassed the area, but a more specific time of when Murnane might have been in the area could help people narrow searches on security cameras. On Monday afternoon, and after consulting with family, Homer Police

Debussy Trio to make Soldotna appearance By Joey Klecka Peninsula Clarion

In exploring the classical music scene for artists to bring to the peninsula, the Performing Arts Society in Soldotna was searching for a wide variety of talent to showcase. The organization found it, with a series of concerts planned this winter, beginning Saturday night with the Debussy Trio. Hosted by the Performing Arts

Society, the concert begins 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26 at Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna, and general admission is $20, while students get in for $10. The concert kicks off a series of four winter concerts on the peninsula that feature everything from classical to jazz to modern interpretations of alternative jazz. Performing Arts Society president Barb Christian said that was the goal of the concert series when the organization was constructing the

schedule last year. “We try to bring unusual talent, international talent and people who have performed or won contests,” Christian said. “We try to bring a variety of things. That way we’re offering different types of concerts.” Christian said the Debussy Trio features three talented artists, highlighted by a rare appearance by world-renowned harpist Marcia Dickstein. “Our big excitement is that we will

have a harpist as part of the trio, and we’ve never had a concert featuring a harpist before,” she said. “They are all exceedingly good musicians, though, and I think our audience will be very pleased by it.” Dickstein is artistic director and founder of the Debussy Trio, which is playing its 30th year and also includes Angela Wiegand on flute and Andrew Duckles on viola.

Attorney: Trump calendar helps prove groping claim By Jennifer Peltz Associated Press

NEW YORK — President Donald Trump’s private calendar helps support a former “Apprentice” contestant’s claim that he subjected her to unwanted kissing and groping, her lawyer said in a court filing Thursday. The calendar records, filed in Summer Zervos’ defamation lawsuit, show Trump was scheduled to be at

the Beverly Hills Hotel in California on Dec. 21, 2007, in the timeframe when she claims Trump made unwanted advances at that hotel. She said he kissed and groped her, despite her objections, at what she thought would be a professional dinner, and then invited her to meet him at his nearby golf course the next morning. The calendar records show he was scheduled there the morning after his arrival at the hotel. Trump’s calendar doesn’t include

anything about a meeting with Zervos. But her lawyer, Mariann Wang, wrote that the documents “strongly corroborate” Zervos’ account — and indicate that Trump was lying in a 2016 statement that said he “never met her at a hotel.” Trump lawyer Marc Kasowitz said Thursday that Zervos’ claims are “entirely meritless and not corroborated by any documents.” Zervos, a California restaurateur who was on “The Apprentice”

in 2006, was among more than a dozen women who came forward during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign with allegations of sexual misconduct. Both she and Trump are Republicans. He called the women “liars” trying to harm him with “100 percent fabricated” stories, and he retweeted a message specifically calling Zervos’ claims “a hoax.” He also issued a See claim, Page A15

We’ve exhausted every lead we have that would put her in town.” Homer Police issued a Silver Alert for Murnane on Saturday, Oct. 19, after she was reported missing last Thursday, Oct. 17. Alaska State Troopers followed up with a statewide alert on Sunday. Murnane “is determined to be at risk,” police said in the alert. Silver Alerts

Murnane was at about 5:15 p.m. last Thursday when someone who knew her saw Murnane in front of Homer’s Jeans on Pioneer Avenue near Heath Street. She was headed east. That area is across the street from the Kachemak Bay Campus, Kenai Peninsula College, and Homer City Hall, and near Cosmic Kitchen. Murnane frequented Cosmic Kitchen, Browning said. Dogs and handlers from North Paw K9 Search and Recovery and Anchorage Search Team worked the area from Murnane’s home in Maintree Supportive Housing, an apartment complex on Main Street, to Pioneer Avenue. The dogs followed a scent from Main Street to Lee Drive, down Svedlund Street,

along a trail or alley way to Kachemak Way, and down Kachemak Way to Pioneer Avenue. At Homer’s Jeans the dogs could no longer follow a scent, Browning said, “They’re acting as if they had what we call ‘a car pickup,’” he said. About 50 volunteers on Sunday did a ground search for Murnane. Organized by the Homer Volunteer Fire Department under the direction of Alaska State Troopers, on Sunday afternoon the teams walked wooded areas on the west side of town below Bartlett Street to the Homer Bypass and in the Karen Hornaday Park areas. Working in grids, teams of volunteers walked woods of alder and spruce that dot the backyards of businesses and homes in the west Homer area. They looked in culverts, in outbuildings, under porches and even in dumpsters. Although in downtown Homer, many of the backyards of businesses and homes can be heavily wooded with thick alder bushes or stands of mature spruce trees. “Obviously, we’re trying to do a search of the local area and anywhere accessible to her,” said HVFD Chief Mark Kirko. Police also searched by air. With help from Maritime Helicopters, they did a low search on Saturday, Oct. 19. Searches were done using drone aircraft and driving an Argo all-terrain vehicle on the beach. A check of airports and ferry terminals showed

Murnane has not traveled by plane or ferry, Browning said. Police also were checking with border stations at the Alaska-Canada border. The tracking dogs also searched Karen Hornaday Park, a trail west of South Peninsula Hospital, the Reber Trail from Fairview Avenue to West Hill Road, and the area around Ben Walters Lane near The Center, or South Peninsula Behavioral Services. “We’re still holding our breath on this, but at least we’re not expecting to find her in the woods at this point,” said Murnane’s step-father, Ed Berg. Browning said Murnane has her wallet, identification and cell phone. She did not appear to have packed a bag but is believed to have her passport. Murnane is not on any medications that would harm her if she didn’t take them, Browning said. Murnane had made plans to travel out of state in November. There had been no communication by Murnane with family or on social media since last Tuesday. Based on cell phone records, Murnane’s cell phone showed it had last been used about 11:30 a.m. last Thursday near Baycrest Hill at Mile 171 Sterling Highway, Browning said. However, cell phone hits like that are accurate within about a 3.5-mile radius. Police also checked security cameras along the route the search dogs indicated Murnane took. Browning

asked anyone who might have game or security cameras to check footage for any possible sightings of Murnane. Search efforts have now shifted to looking at bank and electronic records, Browning said. On Monday police applied for search warrants to do so. Police also have contacted the FBI. As a missing person, she would show up in in law enforcement records if she was contacted and her identification run through databases. On Wednesday, Browning said warrants on social media accounts and bank accounts have been served and police are waiting for information from those businesses. Police also got access to her email. “We’ve got lots of leads coming in, but gotten nowhere,” Browning said. “… We’re looking at every single thing we’ve got.” Browning described Murnane as a vulnerable adult in that “she’s very naive and trusting,” he said. “We want to make sure if she is on her own, she is safe.” “The biggest thing is this is so much outside her normal behavior pattern,” he said. “That causes some concern.” On behalf of Murnane’s family, Berg thanked everyone who has helped. “We certainly appreciate all the great help folks have provided with the searching and the police department,” Berg said.

Vern D. Workman

February 4, 1948 - October 10, 2019 Vern D. Workman, a devoted Jehovah’s Witness, passed away peacefully on Thursday October 10, 2019. He was 71. Vern was born on February 4, 1948 to Josephine and Dewey Workman in Morton Washington. The family moved to Shelton, Washington in the early 60’s where he graduated from Shelton High School in 1966. He joined the military and was stationed in Ft. Carson Co. where he met his wife of almost 50 years, Elizabeth Harwood. Vern married Elizabeth Harwood on November 20, 1969 in Shelton, Washington. During this union in marriage and faith, they raised six children. In 1984 the family moved to Alaska as this was Vern’s dream. He received his private pilot’s license in 1987 and was able to fly, hunt, fish and explore a large portion of Alaska. Vern was a loving, faithful and devoted father, husband, brother and grandfather. Vern was baptized at the District Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses. This began his 30 year walk of faith with Jehovah God. In addition to his wife, he is survived by: his mother; Josephine Justus Workman, his brother; Warren Workman; his sister Leola Workman; his sons, Lance and (his wife, Nittaya), Trant, Caleb and (his wife, Kyra), Aaron; his daughters: Rayna and (her husband Steve), Shanon and (her husband Matt); Twelve grandchildren: Kala, Brittany, Stephen, Skylar, Lexey, Samantha, Taylor, Jordan, Jaide, Avelyn, Tristan, and Jared.

Hammering away at her emails


hat about her emails? Donald Trump raised that question like a red flag for three years, as candidate and president, casting doubts on how Hillary Clinton used a private email server to communicate with her staff and others while she was secretary of state. “Hillary set up an illegal server for the obvious purpose of shielding her criminal conduct from public disclosure and exposure, knowing full well that her actions put our national security at risk,” Mr. Trump said late in the campaign. “Lock her up!” the crowds still chant at his Federal employees rallies. are supposed to Now a three-year conduct business State Department investigation has found on government that, while about three dozen people violated networks to keep protocols about classified material, they “did communications their best to implement secure. Those them in their operarecords let current tions” and “there was no persuasive evidence officials (and also of systemic, deliberate future historians) mishandling of classified information.” understand why This comes after the F.B.I. determined actions were taken months before the elecand make informed tion that, while Mrs. Clinton was “extremely decisions. careless” in having used a private email server for government communications, she did nothing illegal. Federal employees are supposed to conduct business on government networks to keep communications secure from foreign adversaries and to create a record of how the American government carried out its affairs. Those records let current officials (and also future historians) understand why actions were taken and make informed decisions. Despite Mr. Trump’s professed concern about the integrity of government communications, his administration doesn’t seem to take it too seriously. Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, top White House advisers, used the messaging service WhatsApp for official — possibly classified — White House business, potentially violating federal records laws, according to congressional investigators. For example, Mr. Kushner may have used it to communicate with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia, who the C.I.A. says ordered the murder of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Both Ms. Trump and Mr. Kushner also used private email accounts for official business, according to their lawyer. They were not the only ones. Betsy DeVos, the education secretary, used a personal email account for some government business, her department’s inspector general found. White House officials told The Times in 2017 that Stephen Bannon, the former chief White House strategist; Reince Priebus, the former chief of staff; Gary D. Cohn, the former economic adviser; and Stephen Miller, a top aide, all had used personal email accounts for government business, as did K.T. McFarland, the former deputy national security adviser. The keeping and preservation of records isn’t just a matter of concern for historians, it is essential to the smooth functioning of the government. When government officials do business outside official channels, it not only hampers the business of governing, it also raises the concern that there is something to hide. A State Department investigation in 2016 found that other secretaries of state had handled classified information on unclassified email systems. While Mrs. Clinton’s name will always be associated with the practice, it is disappointing to see the use of personal email accounts proliferate across the government. So the Trump administration’s widespread use of personal accounts for government work raises the unavoidable question: What about those emails? — The New York Times, Oct. 21

Serving the Kenai Peninsula since 1970

The opinions expressed on this page are solely those of the authors and do not represent the views of The Peninsula Clarion or its parent company, Sound Publishing.


The following editorial first appeared in The Baltimore Sun: magine that you are an aspiring baseball player. You have spent years honing your craft, working at it every day. You think of yourself as a professional. Perhaps on your home field whether it’s high school, college or the minor leagues, you are even thought of as pretty good. Then one day, unexpectedly, you find yourself in a lineup with someone whose skills dwarf yours. And not by a little. Think Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees versus Joe Fatone of ‘N Sync, but without the boy band singing or dancing. I know exactly what that’s like. I was there. Some 36 years ago this month, I was invited by Maryland Public Television to be a panelist on a half-hour local news program with Gwen Ifill. At the time, she was a politics reporter for The Evening Sun. Taped late on Fridays at MPT’s Owings Mills studio, the show featured reporters from across the state discussing the week’s major events. Similar to “Washington Week” on PBS, each panelist would present a Maryland news story and then the whole group would talk about it. I was then a fledgling


reporter for The Star-Democrat in Easton and new to television, but MPT paid a $125 stipend which was roughly equal to a half-week’s pay, so I was in. I knew I’d be awkward and untrained. Many of my colleagues were the same. And then there was Gwen. To suggest Gwen Ifill was a talented reporter is like offering that Mozart was a pretty good composer. She was not only smart and quickwitted, knowledgeable and hardworking and politically savvy, she was incredibly poised on camera. Print reporters aren’t normally TV friendly. Gwen was a star in whatever medium you cared to choose, and anyone could see it instantly. Before I was even hired by The Sun several years later, her career had already taken off and she left our offices on Calvert Street for greener pastures at The Washington Post and The New York Times and then went on to broadcast journalism, first as a reporter for NBC but eventually as coanchor and co-managing editor of PBS’s “NewsHour” as well as, fittingly, moderator of Washington Week. What viewers across the nation saw on their TV sets was the same superstar I witnessed in the early 1980s

in the green room in Owings Mills. Next month, it will be exactly three years since she died of cancer at age 61, a life taken far too soon. Which brings us to what we call a miserably buried lede, in journalese. The U.S. Postal Service announced this week that Gwen is getting her own commemorative “forever” stamp as part of its Black Heritage series. She is unquestionably deserving. And it appears her selection has more than a little to do with Baltimore, as she was recommended by Morgan State University Associate Professor Wayne Dawkins, a veteran journalist who teaches the next generation of reporters and editors at Morgan. The hope is that the honor will inspire more individuals to pursue a career of truth-seeking, whether it is the glamorous life of interviewing a president on network television or the more mundane job of just trying to get the latest twist or turn of a city mayoral race into the local paper or website. Her place as a breaker of barriers, as an African American woman who achieved the pinnacle of success in her field, was assured long before this day. The stamp is a nice reminder.

Facebook could do to banks what it did to newspapers By Elaine Ou Bloomberg News

On Wednesday, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, testified about his company’s cryptocurrency project at a hearing held by the House Financial Services Committee. In his testimony, Zuckerberg tried to reassure Congress that Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency would square the circle between financial inclusion and regulatory adherence, consumer privacy and proactive fraud detection. The one thing he didn’t manage to address is whether the world really wants a crypto offering from the social media giant. Cryptocurrency has acquired an unseemly status where any use is automatically assumed to have nefarious ends. It doesn’t help that the most prominent example, Bitcoin, has been implicated in some horrific criminal conduct. At the same time, a lack of mainstream adoption gives cryptocurrency few redeeming advocates. No surprise, then, that regulators regard Facebook’s proposal with suspicion. It’s not that legitimate businesses don’t want crypto; it’s that their customers don’t want to use it for payment. When buying stuff on the internet, consumers will choose the payment method that imposes the lowest transaction cost on themselves — that’s generally the credit card option, which allows deferred payment as well as the accrual of miles or points. An online business that refuses to accept credit cards

will always lose out to a competitor that does. But what if you don’t have any competitors? Facebook enjoys quasimonopoly status when it comes to consumer attention, controlling the reach and distribution of content across its network of users. (So far, 46 attorneys general have joined a New York-led antitrust investigation of the company and its dominance as a social media platform.) As the driver of over one-fourth of web traffic, Facebook has a lot of influence over who sees what on the internet. And with over 2.3 billion monthly active users around the world, it’s not a stretch to imagine that the company could have similar influence over who pays whom, and how. Mark Zuckerberg’s Congressional testimony makes it clear that he takes inspiration from China, where WeChat serves as a one-stop portal to the greater internet. There, users conduct their banking, shopping, and bill payments without ever leaving the app. The ability to control users’ economic interactions comes with the privilege of deciding the medium of exchange. If it follows suit, Facebook may end up looking like another familiar monopolist — our own government, which creates the national currency we use to pay our taxes. It’s no wonder regulators and central banks view the Libra project as a threat to the international monetary system. In a recent report, the G7 Working Group warns that global

cryptocurrencies could undermine cross-jurisdictional efforts to combat illicit finance. All international transactions using U.S. dollars currently clear through the New York Federal Reserve, where they can be monitored and stopped if deemed unsavory. Previously, members of the Senate Banking Committee have expressed concern over Facebook’s ability to handle economic sanctions on foreign regimes. Zuckerberg has promised that Calibra, Facebook’s payment app, will include robust compliance systems to fulfill regulatory obligations. However, the greater risk is that Calibra will go above and beyond its regulatory duty. Facebook already employs a more restrictive speech code than legally required — the platform blocks various forms of hate speech, harassment, misinformation and inauthentic behavior. Publishers must accept Facebook’s opaque Terms of Service or risk not being seen at all. It’s one thing to deny politically incorrect figures the ability to share inflammatory content; it’s another thing to leave them economically isolated. In a competitive market, those who disagree with Facebook’s terms could simply take their business elsewhere. The Libra Association currently includes twenty-one member companies, after some early members dropped out. If Facebook mimics WeChat in establishing itself as a go-to payment portal, those former members may have no choice but to return to the cartel.

Wildfires rage across California as lights go dark By Terence CHea and Jocelyn Gecker Associated Press

GEYSERVILLE, Calif. — Fastgrowing fires throughout California forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes Thursday as dry winds and high heat fed both the flames and fears in a state still jittery from devastating wildfires in the last two years. Officials said they did not yet know how many homes had burned and that no immediate injuries were reported. It’s not clear how any of the blazes began. In Northern California wine country, authorities ordered 2,000 people to evacuate as a wildfire exploded to more than 15 square miles (39 square kilometers), whipped up by the strong winds that prompted utilities statewide to impose blackouts to prevent such fires from igniting. Officials ordered an evacuation of the entire community of Geyserville, home to about 900 people and a popular stop for wine country

tourists, along with nearby residents. The blaze threatened some of the area’s famed wineries and the River Rock Casino as the blaze raged on the outskirts of town. In Southern California, a wall of flame rolled along the parched foothills north of Los Angeles, where thousands of homes have sprung up in recent decades. Officials told people to flee along a mileslong stretch of Santa Clarita, where the fire quickly consumed more than a square mile (2.5 square kilometers) of dry brush and threatened homes. Winds gusting to about 40 mph (65 kph) pushed the blaze as enormous plumes of smoke visible for miles covered neighborhoods. A second fire broke out about 10 miles (16 kilometers) away, racing up a hillside to the edge of a neighborhood in Castaic and burning at least two houses. People used hoses to try to protect their properties. Until now, the focus of California’s wildfire season had been on power outages that utilities said were necessary to stop high winds

over the coming days from toppling power lines and starting fires. But the season kicked into higher gear Thursday with the arrival of raging fires and the need to quickly escape them. A series of deadly blazes tore through the same area in Northern California wine country two years ago, killing 44 people. Among those fleeing Geyserville was 81-year-old Harry Bosworth, who awoke before sunrise to find a firetruck and firefighters in his driveway. As he and his wife drove off, flames surrounded their driveway and their barn caught fire. “I could see the fire coming, so we got the heck out of there,” Bosworth said after escaping to his daughter’s house in the neighboring town of Healdsburg. Julia Jackson of Geyserville-based Jackson Family Wines, which owns more than 40 wine labels and thousands of acres of vineyards, posted on Instagram that her home was “burnt down to the ground.” “Stuff is just stuff. Thank God I’m alive,” she wrote. Jackson, who

founded a climate change conference, said such fires are why she is doing the work. Another Geyserville evacuee, Isaac Hale, said he woke up to the sound of authorities ordering him out.

“The highway patrol showed up banging on the door, ordering everyone to evacuate because the fire was so close,” Hale said, seated on top of his SUV near a road closure checkpoint. “The fire, it just spread so fast.”

Facebook clarifies Zuckerberg remarks on false political ads By David Klepper Associated Press

Facebook reiterated its policy of not removing misleading or bogus political ads Thursday, clarifying its own policies after CEO Mark Zuckerberg offered Congress confusing and sometimes incomplete testimony on the subject. On Wednesday, in response to questions from House Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters, Zuckerberg seemed to suggest Facebook did use third-party fact checkers to verify political ads. He contradicted himself moments later, saying the company did not want to get involved in verifying the truth of political claims. “Somebody fact checks on ads? You contract with someone to do

that. Is that right?” Waters asked Zuckerberg. “Yes,” he replied. Later, during an exchange with U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Zuckerberg explained that his company will not remove political ads from candidates — even if false — because he believes voters deserve unfiltered access to the words of politicians. He said exceptions would be made for political ads that encouraged violence or seek to suppress voting. Facebook on Thursday sought to set the record straight, noting that while will not fact check political ads from candidates, it does evaluate the accuracy of political ads from political advocacy groups or political action committees. “In a democracy, people should decide what is credible, not tech companies,” the company wrote in a

statement emailed to the Associated Press on Thursday. “That’s why - like other internet platforms and broadcasters - we don’t fact check ads from politicians.” Facebook’s policy is similar to those at other internet platforms, reflecting the reluctance of big tech companies to police political content on their platforms. “Given the sensitivity around political ads, we have considered whether we should ban them altogether,” Facebook said in its statement to The Associated Press on Thursday. “But political ads are important for local candidates, up-and-coming challengers, and advocacy groups that use our platform to reach voters and their communities.” CNN chief Jeff Zucker called Facebook’s policy not to monitor

political ads for truth-telling “ludicrous” Thursday. He noted that his network recently rejected two ads that that President Donald Trump’s campaign sought to air, saying they repeated allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden that had been proven false. Facebook ran a similar ad. Zuckerberg’s comments on Facebook’s hands-off policy also failed to satisfy Waters, who said Wednesday it would give “anyone Facebook labels a politician a platform to lie, mislead and misinform the American people, which will also allow Facebook to sell more ads. The impact of this will be a massive voter suppression effort.” Earlier this month, Democratic presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts created an intentionally false

Facebook ad claiming that Zuckerberg had endorsed President Donald Trump for re-election. Warren did so to highlight her critique of Facebook’s political-ad policies. During his exchange with OcasioCortez, Zuckerberg also made misleading comments about the company’s reliance on third-party fact checkers to evaluate false news stories posted to the site. Ocasio-Cortez asked Zuckerberg why Facebook had made the conservative publication The Daily Caller one of its third-party fact checkers. In actuality, the fact checking company is Check Your Fact, a subsidiary of The Daily Caller. The Daily Caller was founded by Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson, who has been criticized for declaring white supremacy a “hoax.”

Amazon’s profit falls as costs for faster shipping increase By Joseph Pisani Associated Press

NEW YORK — Amazon’s push for faster delivery is hurting its profits. The online retailer said its thirdquarter net income fell 26% from a year ago, missing Wall Street expectations. Its sales outlook for the holiday shopping season also disappointed analysts, and its stock sank 7% in after-hours trading. Amazon is moving to cut its

delivery time in half to one day instead of two. To do that, it’s adding more workers in its warehouses and expanding its shipping network with more trucks, jets and package sorting facilities. The effort is costing the company about $1.5 billion, nearly double what it previously said it would cost. But Amazon said the one-day shipping is attracting more customers and gets shoppers to spend more. “It’s a big investment,” said Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, in a

statement. “And it’s the right longterm decision for customers.” The Seattle-based company reported net income of $2.1 billion in the three months ending Sept. 30, down from $2.9 billion a year ago. Earnings per share came to $4.23. That’s 36 cents less than what analysts expected, according to FactSet. The company, which used to report razor-thin profits, has seen its quarterly profits grow in the past two years as it expanded into

No deal, more fallout in teacher strike CHICAGO — Classes will be canceled again Friday after Chicago Public Schools and the teachers’ union failed to reach a deal to end a week-long strike in the nation’s third-largest school district. Both sides said Thursday they’ve made progress at the bargaining table but disagreements remain on big issues , such as class sizes and staffing. About 25,000 members of the Chicago Teachers Union went on strike Oct. 17, canceling school for more than 300,000 students. Among those feeling the fallout are student-athletes, who under state rules may not be allowed to participate in upcoming state competitions in cross country, football and other sports if the strike continues. That prompted legal action Thursday, as the parent of a sophomore cross country team member filed a request for a temporary restraining order in Cook County Court to allow the Jones College Prep team to compete in state playoffs this weekend. Kevin Sterling, who is an attorney, said some athletes had college scholarships on the line, and that the kids had become “collateral damage” in the dispute between CPS and the union.

Idaho makes it harder to change gender on birth certificates BOISE, Idaho — Idaho officials have made it more difficult for young transgender people to change the sex listed on their birth certificates despite a U.S. court ruling that appears to ban such obstacles. The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare released comments from the public Wednesday on a temporary rule requiring people younger than 18 to

get approval from medical or mental health professionals before requesting the change. Many of the comments said they wanted the conservative state to go back to banning all gender changes on birth certificates. A federal judge ruled last year that an Idaho law barring transgender people from changing their birth certificates violated the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Any new rule must not subject one class of people to any more onerous burdens than the burdens placed on others without constitutionally appropriate justification,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale wrote. Health and Welfare’s board of directors complied with the order and changed the state’s rules last year. But this May, the board approved the temporary rule requiring anyone under 18 to get approval before requesting the change.

Congress bids farewell to a ‘master of the House’ WASHINGTON — Members of Congress bid a tearful farewell Thursday to Rep. Elijah Cummings , hailing the son of sharecroppers as a “master of the House” as the Maryland Democrat became the first African American lawmaker to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol. Lawmakers eulogized Cummings as a mentor and close friend, with a voice that could “shake mountains,” in the words of Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, and a passion for justice and his hometown of Baltimore. “He had a smile that would consume his whole face. But he also had eyes that would pierce through anybody that was standing in his way,” said Republican Rep. Mark Meadows, whose bond with the Cummings was among Congress’s most surprising friendships. — Associated Press

fast-growing businesses, such as cloud computing and advertising. Sales at its cloud computing business, which powers videostreaming service Netflix and other companies, rose 35% from a year ago. And revenue in its “other” category, which the company said is mostly made up of its advertising business, jumped 44%. But as Amazon grows it faces increasing scrutiny from regulators. The Justice Department opened an antitrust investigation of major

tech companies and whether their platforms have hurt competition and stifled innovation. The department didn’t name any companies, but it said online retailers were an area of “widespread concern.” And the European Union is investigating how Amazon uses data from the small businesses that sell goods on its site. On Thursday during a call with reporters, Amazon executives declined to answer any questions about regulation.

Johnson seeks Dec. 12 election to break Brexit impasse By Jill Lawless Associated Press

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has finally abandoned his promise of an October Brexit and pinned his hopes on a December election. Two days after lawmakers stymied Johnson’s latest attempt to pass his European Union divorce deal, he said Thursday that the only way to break Britain’s Brexit impasse was a general election. Johnson said he would ask lawmakers to vote Monday on a motion calling a national poll for Dec. 12. To hold an election Johnson must win a vote — by a two-thirds majority

— among lawmakers. That looked like a tough task, with the main opposition Labour Party saying it would only back an election once the risk of Britain crashing out of the EU on Oct. 31 — its scheduled departure date — had been removed. Parliament has already dealt Johnson a series of setbacks and derailed his promise to take Britain out of the EU by the end of the month, “come what may.” The most recent blow came Tuesday, when lawmakers blocked Johnson’s attempt to fast-track an EU divorce bill through Parliament in a matter of days, saying they needed more time to scrutinize the legislation.

Britain’s next scheduled election is in 2022. To secure an early election, Johnson needs either to win Monday’s vote in Parliament, or lose a no-confidence vote, which so far opposition parties have refused to call. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would wait and see whether the EU agreed to delay Britain’s departure from the bloc. Johnson grudgingly asked for a three-month delay until Jan. 31 on the orders of Britain’s Parliament, which wants to avert the economic damage that could come from a no-deal exit. “Take no-deal off the table and we absolutely support a general election,” Corbyn said.

He said that “if the EU will answer tomorrow then we’ll know tomorrow.” Smaller opposition parties said they wanted an election but were wary of doing it on Johnson’s terms. “The U.K. government has no coherent plan to end the Brexit chaos and a general election will not solve the crisis,” said Adam Price, leader of the Welsh party Plaid Cymru. Johnson said it would be “morally incredible” if opposition lawmakers blocked an election. “It is time, frankly, for this Parliament to make way for a new, fresh Parliament that can deliver on the priorities of the British people,”

he said. Though the EU has not yet given its answer, Johnson said it looked like the bloc would grant the delay. “I’m afraid it looks as though our EU friends are going to respond to Parliament’s request by having an extension, which I really don’t want at all,” he said. European Council President Donald Tusk has recommended that the other 27 EU nations grant Britain a delay, yet many of the bloc’s members are weary and frustrated at Britain’s interminable Brexit melodrama. But they also want to avoid the economic pain that would come to both sides from a sudden and disruptive British exit.

Probe expands in truck deaths, all victims are from China By Danica Kirka and Jill Lawless Associated Press

LONDON — All 39 people found dead in a refrigerated container truck near an English port were Chinese citizens, British police confirmed Thursday as they investigated one of the country’s deadliest cases of human smuggling. The Essex Police force said 31 men and eight women were found dead in the truck early Wednesday at an industrial park in Grays, a town 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of London. A magistrate gave detectives another 24 hours to question the driver, a 25-year-old man from Northern Ireland who has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. He has not been charged, and police have not released his name. Police in Northern Ireland searched three properties there as detectives sought to piece together how the truck’s cab, its container

and the victims came together on such a deadly journey. Pippa Mills, deputy chief of Essex Police, said the process of conducting post-mortem examinations and identifying the victims would be “lengthy and complex.” “This is an incredibly sensitive and high-profile investigation, and we are working swiftly to gather as full a picture as possible as to how these people lost their lives,” she said. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Chinese Embassy employees in the U.K. were driving to the scene of the crime to aid the investigation. Police believe the truck and container took separate journeys before ending up at the industrial park. They say the container traveled by ferry from the Belgian port of Zeebrugge to Purfleet, England, where it arrived early Wednesday and was picked up by the truck driver and driven the few miles to Grays. The truck cab, which is registered in Bulgaria to a company owned by

an Irish woman, is believed to have traveled from Northern Ireland to Dublin, where it caught a ferry to Wales, then drove across Britain to pick up the container. Global Trailer Rentals Ltd told Ireland’s national broadcaster RTE on Thursday that it owns the trailer and that it was leased Oct. 15 in County Monaghan, in Ireland, at a rate of 275 euros ($299) per week. The Dublin-based company said it will make the data from its tracking system available to investigators. The company’s directors told RTE it was “shell-shocked” at the news and that it was it was “entirely unaware that the trailer was to be used in the manner in which it appears to have been.” Groups of migrants have repeatedly landed on English shores using small boats to make the risky Channel crossing, and migrants are sometimes found in the back of cars and trucks that disembark from the massive ferries that link France and England. But Wednesday’s macabre find in an industrial park was a reminder that criminal gangs

are still profiting from large-scale trafficking. The tragedy recalls the deaths of 58 Chinese migrants who suffocated in a truck in Dover, England, in 2000 after a perilous, months-long

journey from China’s southern Fujian province. They were found stowed away with a cargo of tomatoes after a ferry ride from Zeebrugge, the same Belgian port that featured in the latest tragedy.

Deadly Ethiopia unrest a fresh challenge to Nobel winner By Elias Meseret Associated Press

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — Ethiopia’s Nobel Peace Prize-winning Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed faced the most serious political challenge of his short rule Thursday as officials said dozens of people might be dead in two days of unrest caused by tensions between security forces and the country’s most prominent activist. In an interview with The Associated Press, Jawar Mohammed hinted he might raise the stakes by

entering next year’s election, but he warned that holding the vote amid current conditions “is the most dangerous thing Ethiopia can do.” Not two weeks have passed since Abiy was named the Nobel winner for his sweeping reforms that included welcoming home from exile Mohammed and other critics and opposition figures who had been considered terrorists by the previous government. Abiy called it opening up the political space after he took office last year, and Ethiopians were surprised but jubilant.

Now Ethiopia’s largest regional state is engulfed in protests sparked by apparent friction between security forces and Jawar, a media entrepreneur who many say played a key role from afar in mobilizing months of widespread protests that led the previous prime minister to resign. Some Ethiopians fear protests could emerge again as long-held grievances are aired after the loosening of repressive controls in a country with scores of ethnic groups. Officials recently expressed disgust with some media outlets

that they called unprofessional and too ethnic-centered. Last year, Abiy welcomed Jawar home. On Tuesday, however, in remarks to parliament Abiy warned unnamed people “who don’t even have an Ethiopian passport” that “if you threaten our peace and security, we will take measures.” Many Ethiopians saw it as a warning to Jawar, a U.S. passport holder, who said he woke up the next morning to find attempts being made to remove his government-provided security detail in the capital, Addis Ababa.

“The order to remove my security was a strange one. It was attempted in the middle of the night,” Jawar said. “Later on I found out the plot was to remove the security and then unleash a mob attack on my house and accuse some other rival groups.” He alerted the public on social media, and hundreds of his supporters began to arrive. Some camped outside and chanted slogans against the prime minister: “Down, down, Abiy!” Some remained on Thursday, while Jawar appealed for calm.

Morales declares victory in Bolivia without final vote count LA PAZ, Bolivia — President Evo Morales on Thursday declared himself victor of the weekend election without a final vote tally, stirring more anger among foes who have protested for days claiming fraud in the vote count, while the U.S., Brazil, Argentina and Colombia joined in calling for Bolivia to hold a runoff between the incumbent and his top challenger. Electoral authorities, meanwhile, announced late in the day that voting would have to be held again in five spots in the Amazonian Beni region because of irregularities in Sunday’s vote. They said the re-votes to be held Nov. 3 wouldn’t change the outcome, but the development still threatened to delay a final, official tally. With 99.92% of votes counted by late afternoon, Morales had 47.07% to 36.51% for former President Carlos Mesa, who finished second in the ninecandidate field. That kept Morales just over the 10 percentage point lead over his nearest rival needed to avoid a second-round ballot in December.

Chile protesters: Government concessions not enough SANTIAGO, Chile — Demonstrators returned to Chile’s streets on Thursday, dissatisfied with economic concessions announced by the government in a bid to curb a week of deadly violence. President Sebastián Piñera acknowledged that the steps taken to ease public anger won’t fully address the grievances of many people in the country of 18 million. “But we also know that it constitutes important relief,” said the president, whose concessions include plans to put a 9.2% increase in electricity prices on hold until

the end of next year. Piñera’s administration is struggling to contain unrest that began as a protest over a 4-cent increase in subway fares and soon morphed into a larger movement over rising water and medical costs and other hardships. Hundreds of demonstrators began gathering in city squares in Chile on Thursday, a day after huge protests and riots in the capital, Santiago. Some residents spent the morning clearing debris from the unrest. At least 18 people have died in violence that has swept the South American nation. Most protests have been peaceful, but instances of arson, looting and alleged brutality by security forces have shocked many in a country known for relative stability.

Police clash with students protesting business reforms ATHENS, Greece — Police clashed with students in Greece’s two largest cities Thursday amid strikes and street protests against a planned overhaul of business rules by the new conservative government. In Athens, one protester and one policeman were hurt when a confrontation between students and police turned violent outside parliament. Police used tear gas to disperse the demonstrators. Clashes also occurred during a student protest in the northern city of Thessaloniki. No arrests were reported. The three-monthold government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis says the reforms will simplify regulations and boost investment as Greece emerges from a protracted financial crisis. Mitsotakis wants to boost growth with more aggressive pro-business policies, promising to deliver 2.8% growth next year, higher than the European Commission’s forecast of 2.2%. His government is also hoping that the reforms will help persuade European creditors to ease repayment conditions debts from three consecutive international bailouts. — Associated Press

minister’s message | Mitch Glover

Protection through the faith shield ‘S

hield” appears 65 times in the Bible. Perhaps its most important uses are God being a protector and the shield of faith. Roman soldiers were everywhere when Paul wrote of a believer’s armor in Ephesians 6. A shield could easily be recognized. Note that Paul said to take the shield of faith “above all.” This is because it can “quench all” the fiery darts of the wicked deceiver. What does the faith shield protect from? We know the truth of the cliche, “Bad things happen to good people.” The Bible has many stories about those who pushed and pressed through adversity from the troubles of Job to the writings of John in Revelation. They persevered to achieve good works. The story of Joseph is one such

account. His journey through difficulties to deliverance is inspiring. He was taken from his father the patriarch, thrown into a pit, sold as a slave to Potiphar, sent to prison, and finally promoted to the palace of Pharaoh. Along the way he was mistreated and maligned, forsaken and forgotten. But what he learned in those circumstances helped when he became a ruler in Egypt, second only to Pharaoh. He not only proved to be a powerful administrator, but when he was in position to seek revenge he instead forgave. His faith served him well in preserving his hope, language, and beliefs, and eventually his entire family. The shield of faith still protects the hearts and minds of those serving Jesus Christ. Those who

tightly grip their faith shield are in turn held by a faithful God. The shield of faith protects when in the doctor’s office and the dreaded word “cancer” is in your diagnosis. This happened to two people I know, Rick and Annette. Their faith shields were hammered by fear and doubt. Both went through treatment but more importantly, they held to their faith shield throughout. Both are now cancer free. Esther was in a wheelchair with braces on her hands and legs. She couldn’t feed herself very well, if at all. She was determined to attend a church meeting that was at a campground. The difficulty of getting around in her wheelchair did not deter her. As she sat in the tabernacle during the service, something supernatural

happened. A simple prayer for healing made a tremendous change in her body. She was able to stand up and worship. Then she began to run around the tabernacle, rejoicing in her healing! Years later, she is still standing, with her shield of faith in place. You can read her story in her book, “Who Was I that YOU Thought of Me?” Sometimes faith shields from the storm, sometimes it shields in the storm. Jesus said the sun rises on the evil and the good, and rain falls on the just and unjust. Everyone experiences ups and downs. Look to the rock like David, especially when you are feeling overwhelmed (Psalm 61:2).

Hold your faith shield with a firm grip as well as the sword of the Spirit. Along with all the armor, both shield and sword win victories in the spiritual realm through Jesus Christ.

Vikings stay hot, dump Washington MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Dalvin Cook had 171 total yards and the game’s only touchdown, helping Kirk Cousins beat his old team on the first try and carrying the Minnesota Vikings to a 19-9 victory over the Washington Redskins on Thursday night. Cook, the NFL leader in yards from scrimmage, rushed 23 times for 98 yards and caught five passes for 73 yards for the Vikings (6-2) in their fourth straight victory. Cousins went 23 for 26 for 285 yards without a turnover against the Redskins (1-7), who drafted him in 2012 and made him the full-time starter in 2015.

Case Keenum, the quarterback Cousins replaced, had his return to Minnesota spoiled by a concussion that kept him out of the second half. Keenum also lost a fumble on a first-quarter sack. Rookie Dwayne Haskins threw an interception deep in Minnesota territory when the Redskins trailed by only seven points. Another former Vikings standout, Adrian Peterson, had 14 carries for 76 yards and in the process moved up to sixth place on the NFL’s career rushing list. Keenum’s last time in the stadium was nearly two years ago, when his last-play touchdown pass

to Stefon Diggs gave the Vikings a victory over New Orleans in a divisional round playoff game, but there was little reason to make this game a memory. Keenum went 12 for 16 for 130 yards. Diggs caught all seven passes that came his way from Cousins, racking up 143 yards to make sure the Redskins didn’t completely sell out to stop the run. Alexander Mattison added 61 yards on 13 rushes, and Minnesota more than doubled Washington’s total yardage, 434-216. After coach Jay Gruden was fired three games ago and replaced on an interim basis by Bill Callahan,

the Redskins doubled down on the ageless Peterson and began pounding him into the defense with more frequency while trying to relieve some of the pressure on Keenum behind a vulnerable offensive line. Washington was plenty content to play a slow, safe game against the formidable Minnesota defense, and Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski was more than fine with a slog-it-out style. Cousins was as crisp as ever, but the deep ball to Diggs was only used sparingly after an air-it-out approach to their See nfl, Page A10

Homer grad is on Team Papi By Michael Armstrong Homer News

Next spring in Boston, a Homer High School graduate will join the team of legendary Red Sox hitter David Ortiz — that’s right, Big Papi himself. OK, Lauren Kuhns won’t be playing baseball with Ortiz — he’s retired anyway — but when she runs the Boston Marathon on April 20, 2020, she will be part of Team Papi, raising money for the David Ortiz Children’s Fund. A 14-year veteran of the Red Sox when he retired in 2016, Ortiz helped the Red Sox break their 86-year World Series drought in 2004. He holds the singleseason Red Sox record of hitting 54 home runs, with a career total of 541 home runs. Ortiz had put out the call for qualified Boston Marathon runners to join his cause. Kuhns said she applied, not really thinking she would be accepted. “I thought, if I did get accepted, it would be cool,” she said in a phone interview Tuesday from Worcester, Massachusetts, where she’s a junior at Assumption College. “It’s something to add to the

experience.” Kuhns, 21, has run two Boston Marathons as well as two marathons in Anchorage. In her first marathon, the 2017 Humpy’s Marathon, she took first place with a time of 3 hours, 17 minutes and 37 seconds. That qualified her for the Boston Marathon. She’s also run the Anchorage Mayor’s Marathon. Her personal record is 3 hours 15 minutes. Kuhns said her goal is to break the 3-hour barrier — and to run a marathon in each of the 50 United States. Having run two Boston Marathons solo, Kuhns said she’s excited to run as part of a team. “Every year you do it, it’s the best experience in the world,” Kuhns said. “A lot of people running are doing it with another organization as well. It’s a big event and draws a lot of attention. You can support a lot of causes.” According to its website, davidortizchildrensfund. org, the David Ortiz Children’s Fund provides “support for children in the Dominican Republic and in New England who cannot afford the critical cardiac services they need.” See Run, Page A10

Bucks spoil Harden-Westbrook reunion By The Associated Press HOUSTON — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 30 points and had a triple-double before fouling out and his supporting cast held on to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 117-111 victory over the Houston Rockets on Thursday night in a star-studded opener featuring the last three MVPs. Antetokounmpo, the MVP last season, fouled out with about five minutes remaining. He had 13 rebounds and 11 assists. Brook Lopez made two free throws with about a minute left before a layup by Russell Westbrook. But Lopez made a fadeaway shot to leave Milwaukee up 115-109 with 39 seconds remaining.

with about 15 seconds to go that sent many fans heading to the exits. Some had wondered what would happen with the pairing of the two ball-dominant guards in Harden and Westbrook after the 2017 MVP was traded from Oklahoma City for Chris Paul this summer. In their first game together with the Rockets both filled up the stat sheet, but they were unable to come away with a win after leading for much of the game.

CLIPPERS 141, WARRIORS 122 SAN FRANCISCO — Kawhi Leonard spoiled the Warriors’ first game at Chase Center just as he did their farewell at Oracle Arena four

months ago, scoring 21 points in three quarters to lead Los Angeles to the win at Golden State’s snazzy new arena. Reigning NBA Finals MVP Leonard shot 9 for 17 and also dished out nine assists in his second game with L.A.

HAWKS 117, PISTONS 100 DETROIT — Trae Young had 38 points and nine assists and Atlanta opened the season with a victory over Detroit. John Collins added 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Jabari Parker had 18 points. Vince Carter checked in for Atlanta with 6:52 left in the first quarter, becoming the first player to see action in 22 NBA seasons.

Summery salmon memories W

ednesday evening, everything on my dinner plate was either caught in Alaska or grown in Alaska. The last of the kohlrabi and turnips, a single carrot, some beets and a handful of brussel sprouts were roasted to perfection with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. The salmon fillet was thawed and ready to be released from its plastic, vacuum-packed cocoon and metamorphose into the home-cooked meal I’ve been daydreaming about all day, maybe even all month. It’s been so long since I’ve had salmon. It’s probably only been a couple of months, but that seems like a long time for Alaskans, especially for those of us living on the Kenai Peninsula. Eating salmon is a balance of indulgence and self-control. What if we eat it all before January? What if we’re drowning in uneaten, potentially freezer-burned salmon come July? In its summer abundance we enjoyed it regularly, but now that fall is settling in, our supply waits in the freezer for those dark and cold days when we crave the taste of endless sunshine and memories of fishing. Last night’s salmon was processed by family. My boyfriend, Nate, and I got to the makeshift fish camp on my aunt’s lawn in Nikiski just as they were finishing up. We both had to work, but were still able to help clean up and reap the rewards. My parents and grandma, aunts and uncles all came down to get their fish this summer. They are originally from the Kenai Peninsula, but most live in Anchorage now. Many of our friends from Anchorage came to visit us this summer to fish, too. Our gravel driveway, garden hose and trusty vacuum sealer were combined to create a small fish-processing operation by friends from across the state who came to dip their nets into the Kenai or Kasilof. Every night, no matter the day of the week, friends were camping on our lawn, borrowing our nets or packing their catches into their coolers for the drive north to Anchorage. Every night, salmon was on the menu to be shared among friends. Today, the days are shorter. We get few visitors this time of year. Our hose is rolled up for the winter and the nets will be stored away in time for snow. The temperatures are freezing, much too cold to host campers on the lawn.

It’s time for winter moths

n the windows of my home in Kasilof, under lights at the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge’s headquarters in Soldotna, in Anchorage and in Fairbanks, winter moths are appearing in large numbers this year. These delicate, pale brown or gray moths flit about in the evenings from September into November. I have witnessed the frail moths flying through lightly falling snow, seeming to defy the change of seasons. Like unsolicited advertisements left on our doors to claim our attention, the drab moths tell us about something we might otherwise

Matt Bowser

Kenai National Wildlife Refuge not have considered. As with the rise and fall of snowshoe hares, pulses of spruce cone production and biennial runs of pink salmon in the Kenai River, winter moths come and go in one of the interwoven cycles of the boreal forest around us. Several similar-looking species of winter moths occur around the world in northern to temperate latitudes. The winter moth, Operophtera brumata, is the common species in Europe and northern Asia. It is now an invasive species in Canada

and the Lower 48. The bruce spanworm, Operophtera bruceata, inhabits most of North America’s boreal forest. Operophtera occidentalis, also known as the Kodiak looper, ranges from coastal Alaska down to California. On the Kenai Peninsula, we have both bruce spanworms and Kodiak loopers. Right now, winter moths are seeking mates and laying eggs. The strange-looking, wingless females climb up trees or shrubs and emit a scent that the winged males follow. Females deposit eggs singly in crevices in bark. All See refuge, Page A10

Girardi lands job as Phillies manager PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Phillies got their man. Philadelphia hired former Yankees manager Joe Girardi to replace Gabe Kapler on Thursday. Girardi will be introduced at a news conference Monday. “I’m excited for this next chapter of my career,” Girardi said in a statement. “The Phillies have a strong commitment to winning from the owners to the front office to the players to the fans. It’s something that I’ve seen up close for the last 30 years of my baseball career. I played against the great Phillies players of the early ‘90s from Dutch Daulton

to John Kruk to Dave Hollins, and I managed against their teams during the incredible run they had from 2008 to 2011. To have my name now associated with this great franchise is something that I couldn’t be happier about.” It was a busy day around the league for managerial hirings. The Chicago Cubs tabbed former catcher David Ross to replace Joe Maddon, and the San Diego Padres turned to rookie manager Jayce Tingler. The Los Angeles Angels introduced Joe Maddon. Kapler was fired after an injurydepleted team went 81-81 despite

significant offseason additions highlighted by Bryce Harper’s arrival. He was 161-163 in his two seasons. The Phillies also interviewed Dusty Baker and Buck Showalter. Girardi was the favorite among vocal fans, who didn’t accept Kapler mainly because of his California-cool personality. Girardi was one of the most prominent candidates to fill vacant managerial spots across baseball. He also interviewed with the Cubs and New York Mets. “Joe brings high character and a tremendous work ethic to his position, and he is a proven winner,”

Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said. “I look forward to working with him and I believe that he is the right manager to lead our team to the next level.” Girardi succeeded Joe Torre after the 2007 season and spent a decade in pinstripes. He led New York to its 27th World Series title, beating the Phillies in six games in 2009. He also managed the Marlins one season and was NL Manager of the Year after going 78-84 in 2006, the only manager in the history of the award to win it with a losing record. Girardi’s record with the Yankees was 910-710, the sixth most wins in

team history. Girardi won at least 84 games each season in New York and had four years with 95 or more, including 103 in 2009. He led the Yankees to three AL East titles and six postseason appearances. The 55-year-old Girardi hit .267 as a catcher for 15 seasons in the majors. He won three championships with the Yankees in the 1990s and was an All-Star for the Cubs in 2000. The Phillies haven’t had a winning season since 2011 when they finished a run of five straight NL East titles, two pennants and one World Series championship under Charlie Manuel.

Nats have 2-0 lead, frenzied crowd WASHINGTON (AP) — Walking off the field after the final out, Juan Soto smiled as he approached manager Dave Martinez and held up a pair of fingers. “Two more,” Soto told his skipper. By then, Minute Maid Park was nearly empty and mostly silent, except for a small clutch of fans behind Washington’s dugout. Suffice to say, it will look and sound a lot different Friday night at Nationals Park. Halfway to a World Series championship in a city that hasn’t claimed the crown since 1924, Washington has watched everything go its way in taking a 2-0 lead over the discombobulated Houston Astros, who were heavily favored at the start. Not that anyone expected exactly this. Those taut, tense pitching duels that were set with aces Gerrit Cole, Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander and Stephen Strasburg on the mound?

Nope. “Just about when we all predict what this is supposed to be about, the game will show you that you know maybe a little bit less and less the more you’re around it,” Astros manager AJ Hinch said. Instead, the biggest star so far is a hitter — Soto, still in his first full season and already with a knack for clutch knocks. It was Soto’s eighthinning hit that rallied the Nationals past Milwaukee in the NL wild-card game. He then hit a tying home run off Clayton Kershaw in the eighth during the deciding Game 5 of the Division Series. Soto was just getting warmed up, apparently. He’s 4 for 7 with a homer and two doubles in the World Series, driving in three runs and scoring three and also stealing a base. And those shakes and shimmies he does at the plate, no wonder it’s called the Soto Shuffle.

SMU tops Houston HOUSTON (AP) — SMU coach Sonny Dykes conceded that the Mustangs did not play well and still managed to escape with a win. Shane Buechele threw for 203 yards and two touchdowns, Xavier Jones ran for 133 yards and two touchdowns and No. 16 SMU held off Houston 34-31 Thursday night.

“It was a struggle for most of the night,” Dykes said. “We didn’t do a good job running the ball in the second half, didn’t really have the ball in the second half. We had a couple short fields and made strange things happen, but again, any time you cannot play well and win on the road, especially on a short week . I got to give our guys a lot of credit.”

Nikiski netters top Seward Nikiski volleyball rolled to a 3-0 Southcentral Conference win Thursday night in Seward before heading up to Anchorage for the Dimond/Service tournament this weekend. The Bulldogs swept the Seahawks with scores of 25-19, 25-14 and 25-12. Nikiski senior Kaycee Bostic led the Bulldogs attack

with nine kills while senior Tika Zimmerman tallied seven. Senior setter Kaitlyn Johnson dished out four aces and nine digs, while senior libero America Jeffreys had four aces to go with 12 digs, and junior Kotori Miyoshi added three aces. Seward will travel to play Houston for a conference match Friday at 6:30 p.m.

Woods is making his first start in his 23rd season on the PGA Tour, needing one victory to reach 82 wins and tie the career record held by Sam Snead. Organizers said the golf course had already taken on an inch of rain early Friday and was “unplayable.”

LAFC, Atlanta United advance in playoffs By The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Carlos Vela scored two goals in the first half and set up Diego Rossi’s tiebreaking goal in the second half, and Los Angeles FC advanced to the MLS Western Conference final with a wild 5-3 victory over the LA Galaxy on Thursday night in the first postseason edition of this city rivalry. Adama Diomande added two goals in the second half as top-seeded LAFC earned the 2-year-old franchise’s first postseason victory. LAFC also beat the Galaxy for the first time in the sixth chapter of the lively crosstown derby dubbed El Tráfico. Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a goal and an assist in perhaps his final game for the Galaxy

while both teams put on a dazzling offensive show in front of a raucous sellout crowd near downtown Los Angeles. LAFC advanced to face the Seattle Sounders in the Western Conference final on Tuesday night at Banc of California Stadium. The winner faces Toronto FC or Atlanta United for the MLS Cup on Nov. 10. After Vela staked LAFC to an early lead with a dominant performance befitting the forward who just set the MLS single-season record with 34 goals, Diomande scored twice as a second-half substitute in his first game in a month. L AFC needed all that offense to hold off

Ibrahimovic. The 38-yearold Swedish superstar set up Cristian Pavón’s goal and then drilled home a tying goal early in the second half, his ninth against LAFC in less than two MLS seasons. Galaxy star Romain Alessandrini then set up a header by Rolf Feltscher in the 77th minute to trim LAFC’s lead to 4-3, but Diomande rampaged downfield to chip home the clinching goal in the 80th minute.

Philadelphia to advance to the Eastern Conference final. United will host Toronto FC on Wednesday night. Toronto beat top-seed New York City FC 2-1 on the road Wednesday night. Pity Martinez came on a ball in about 35 yards in front of goal and sent a diagonal pass right ahead of Gressel. The ball entered the box ahead of Gressel, but he got to it before Philadelphia goalkeeper Andre Blake and touched it left around him to the far post for the score. Gressel assisted on the Martinez goal, when the striker got forward down the left side and the curled a left footer into the top left corner.

Helping people with heart disease also is a cause dear to Kuhns and her family. The daughter of Bridget and Lary Kuhns, her older sister, Kate, died suddenly of a brain tumor at age 18. An organ donor, Kate’s heart went to a man the family later met. “We are really close with my sister’s heart recipient,” Lauren Kuhns said. “Hearts are a big deal.” On her application for Team Papi, Kuhns also mentioned her goal of working in pediatric neurology. She’s a psychology and neuroscience major at Assumption. “I’ve worked with kids with disorders,” she said. “I’ve had experience with kids and how they’ve been in hospitals. … It made it special to be part of a team supporting children going through a hard time.” A 2017 Homer High School graduate, Kuhns received a swimming scholarship to Assumption. In her senior year at Homer High, she ran track and then picked up longer races like the Homer Cosmic Hamlet. At Assumption she also runs for the track team, where the coach put her in the 10-kilometer event. “As addictive as running is, I started doing crosscountry,” she said.

Kuhns said on the bus out to the starting line she rode with a man who was running his 43rd consecutive Boston Marathon. “He was talking about how everything had changed,” she said. “It wasn’t just a race anymore. … It was people coming together to show we aren’t going to be brought down by everybody’s negativity.” In that race she also met a double-amputee who lost both her legs in the bombing and was running the marathon. “She said, ‘This isn’t going to be the end of my life. It’s a chance to start something new,’” Kuhns said. “All of us are struggling to make these 26.2 miles on our own two legs. It’s inspiring.” Those kind of stories are part of what makes the Boston Marathon special, Kuhns said. “You see women who say, ‘I thought I could never do this and look at where I am,’” she said. That’s part of what Kuhns said she hopes she can bring to Team Papi. “It’s going to show these kids you may have this tremendous struggle right now, but there’s more to life than an illness,” she said. “You can still conquer something. You can still reach your goal even though you have your setbacks.” Reach Michael Armstrong at

Today in History Today is Friday, Oct. 25, the 298th day of 2019. There are 67 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 25, 1971, the U.N. General Assembly voted to admit mainland China and expel Taiwan. On this date: In 1760, Britain’s King George III succeeded his late grandfather, George II. In 1812, the frigate USS United States, commanded by Stephen Decatur, captured the British vessel HMS Macedonian during the War of 1812. In 1854, the “Charge of the Light Brigade” took place during the Crimean War as an English brigade of more than 600 men charged the Russian army, suffering heavy losses. In 1910, “America the Beautiful,” with words by Katharine Lee Bates and music by Samuel A. Ward, was first published. In 1954, a meeting of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Cabinet was carried live on radio and television. In 1962, during a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, U.S. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson II demanded that Soviet Ambassador Valerian Zorin confirm or deny the existence of Soviet-built missile bases in Cuba; Stevenson then presented photographic evidence of the bases to the Council. In 1964, The Rolling Stones made the first of six appearances on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” In 1983, a U.S.-led force invaded Grenada (greh-NAY’-duh) at the order of President Ronald Reagan, who said the action was needed to protect U.S. citizens there. In 1994, Susan Smith of Union, South Carolina, claimed that a black carjacker had driven off with her two young sons (Smith later confessed to drowning the children in John D. Long Lake, and was convicted of murder). Three defendants were convicted in South Africa of murdering American exchange student Amy Biehl. (In 1998, all three were granted amnesty by South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.) In 1999, golfer Payne Stewart and five others were killed when their Learjet flew uncontrolled for four hours before crashing in South Dakota; Stewart was 42. In 2001, a day after the House signed on, the Senate sent President Bush the U-S-A Patriot Act, a package of anti-terror measures giving police sweeping new powers to search people’s homes and business records secretly and to eavesdrop on telephone and computer conversations. In 2002, U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone, D-Minn., was killed in a plane crash in northern Minnesota along with his wife, daughter and five others, a week and a-half before the election. Actor Richard Harris died in London at age 72. Ten years ago: A pair of suicide car bombings devastated the heart of Iraq’s capital, Baghdad, killing 155 people, including 24 children. Philanthropist Jeffry Picower, accused of making more than $7 billion from the investment schemes of his longtime friend Bernard Madoff, drowned after suffering a heart attack in the swimming pool of his Palm Beach, Florida, mansion; he was 67. The New York Yankees won their first pennant in six years, beating the Los Angeles Angels 5-2 in Game 6 of the AL championship series. Five years ago: The World Health Organization said more than 10,000 people had been infected with Ebola and that nearly half of them had died as the outbreak continued to spread. Jack Bruce, 71, the bassist and lead vocalist of the 1960s power trio Cream, died in London. The San Francisco Giants defeated the Kansas City Royals, 11-4, to even the World Series at two games each. One year ago: Investigators searched coast-to-coast for the culprit behind the mail-bomb plot aimed at critics of President Donald Trump as three more devices were linked to the plot - two addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden and one to actor Robert De Niro.

I think one usually knows right away or a moment afterward, in a horrid flash of regret.” -- Mary McCarthy, American author and critic (born in 1912, died this day in 1989).

FLAMES 6, PANTHERS 5, SO CALGARY, Alberta — Matthew Tkachuk scored twice in regulation and again in the shootout in Calgary’s victory over Florida. Sean Monahan also scored in the shootout for Calgary, which converted both tiebreaking attempts on Sergei Bobrovsky. David Rittich thwarted Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov to secure the victory. Austin Czarnik, Mark Giordano and Sam Bennett scored in regulation for Calgary. Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar, Josh Brown, Evgenii Dadonov and Mark Pysyk scored for Florida.

COYOTES 2 UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Anders Lee scored the winner and Semyon Varlamov made 21 saves to help New York beat Arizona for its fifth straight victory. Derick Brassard, Josh Bailey and Scott Mayfield also scored for New York. Michael Grabner and Conor Garland scored for Arizona. The Coyotes had won four in a row.


New York. Marco Scandella and Vladimir Sobotka scored for Buffalo.

PREDATORS 4, WILD 0 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Pekka Rinne made 26 saves, Colton Sissons had a goal and an assist and Nashville beat Minnesota. Rinne improved to 6-0-1 with his first shutout of the season and 56th overall. Miikka Salomaki, Calle Jarnkrok and Craig Smith also scored for Nashville.


CHICAGO — Kevin Hayes scored after he lost a goal because of an offsides challenge in Philadelphia’s victory over Chicago. Claude Giroux, James van Riemsdyk and Oskar Lindblom also scored for Philadelphia, which beat Chicago 4-3 in Prague in the season opener on Oct. 4. Brian Elliott made 23 saves in his second straight start. Brandon Saad scored for Chicago.

ST. LOUIS — Alex Pietrangelo and Robert Thomas scored in a two-minute span of the second period in St. Louis’ victory over Los Angeles. Brayden Schenn scored twice, including an emptynetter, Vince Dunn also scored, and Jordan Binnington made 33 saves. Jeff Carter and Alex Iafallo scored for the Kings.




NEW YORK — Ryan Strome scored his first two goals this season, Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves and New York beat Buffalo to snap a fivegame losing streak. Artemi Panarin, Brett Howden, Tony DeAngelo and Chris Kreider also scored for

DALLAS — Denis Gurianov ended a personal scoring drought with two first-period goals, and Ben Bishop made 29 saves to help Dallas beat Anaheim. Gurianov hadn’t scored in 26 games since his first NHL goal on Nov. 18, 2018.

in Cook that he rewarded by powering his way through safety Troy Apke and cornerback Fabian Moreau at the goal line. The Vikings ran a thirdand-15 draw play to Cook from the 25 early in the fourth quarter before settling Dan Bailey’s fourth field goal of the night, an ultra-conservative decision that even drew some boos from a crowd that was probably just bored at that point by a game bogged down by penalties and ballcontrol play.

STEFON NEEDS STICKUM: Diggs went without a fumble over each of the last three seasons, and the Vikings recovered the two he had as a rookie in 2015. This year, he has already fumbled four times, the most in the league among non-quarterbacks, and the Vikings have lost three of them. Diggs also dropped what would have been a touchdown pass last week at Detroit, a catchable ball that slipped through his hands on third down in the

fourth quarter. PAYING TRIBUTE: Former Vikings tight end Steve Jordan, a six-time Pro Bowl pick, entered the team’s Ring of Honor in a halftime ceremony that his son Cameron Jordan, the four-time Pro Bowl defensive end for the Saints, was able to attend. Jordan, who wore a blue NFC Pro Bowl jersey with his father’s No. 83, was on the losing end of that Keenum-to-Diggs play that sent the Vikings to the NFC championship game.

brown patches on mountain slopes and subalpine thickets. We still do not know what initiates these outbreaks, but we do know about how outbreaks are synchronized regionally, the causes of population declines after outbreaks and how these moths affect other species in the boreal forest. Regionally, we have seen that outbreaks of winter moth caterpillars occur across Southcentral Alaska in a short span of a few years. One way these outbreaks are synchronized is through long-range dispersal, where moths in one area spread out tens to hundreds of miles. You might wonder how winter moths, having flightless females, can disperse farther than a moth or caterpillar can crawl. In these species, the young caterpillars can travel long distances downwind by ballooning on long strands of silk in the

same way Charlotte’s spiderlings left Zuckerman’s farm in the story of Charlotte’s Web. During outbreaks, winter moths serve as food for birds, insects and spiders. Voles and shrews prey on pupae in the leaf litter. Trees and shrubs fed upon by the caterpillars defend themselves by increasing bitter compounds in their foliage. Heavily damaged plants grow more slowly or die back. Now with fewer and more bitter leaves, the plants provide poorer forage for hares and moose. Under denuded trees and shrubs, with increased sunlight filtering through the canopy and fertilizer added to the soil as caterpillar droppings, grasses flourish, covering the ground more thickly until the canopy above recovers. Winter moth outbreaks conclude when most leaves have been eaten. The starving caterpillars turn to devouring

whatever green things they can find, but they languish on alternative diets. Even when food remains available, winter moth populations decline after two to three years at least partly due to diseases that spread through the moth populations. After populations decline, winter moths generally exist as an inconspicuous part of the forest system for 10 or more years. The apparently higher numbers of winter moth adults this fall do not necessarily mean that we are entering a new outbreak, but they are a reminder of the intertwined cycles of the boreal forest in which we live.

BLUE JACKETS 4, HURRICANES 3, OT COLUMBUS, Ohio — Cam Atkinson scored 3:28 into overtime to lift Columbus past Carolina. Atkinson tapped in a pass from Pierre-Luc Dubois to give the Blue Jackets a second straight victory in a fourth consecutive overtime game. Ryan Murray, Alexander Texier and Sonny Milano also scored, and Joonas Korpisalo stopped 21 shots. Dougie Hamilton, Ryan Dzingel and Sebastian Aho scored for Carolina, and Petr Mrazek made 27 saves.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Others seem to be distracted as you attempt to clear out your to-do list before the weekend. They mean well but could be feeling the weekend fever. By midafternoon, you lighten up. Tonight: TGIF.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Your creativity surges; however, others might not be as open as you would like. Some people are off on their own personal tangents, getting ready for

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH Getting going could be slow. You might find yourself stalling or participating in a frivolous time waster. Do as much as you can. Late afternoon, you sense that you can relax — finally. Tonight: Let the good times roll.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Return calls. Respond to emails and texts. Complete as much as you can; don’t let any details fall by the wayside. You might change plans at the last minute because of a call or conversation. Tonight: Head home first.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Balance your checkbook, clear out pending bills and set your weekend budget. This phase could be critical to your weekend. You need limits, like anyone. Honor the ones you come up with. Tonight: Respond to an invitation.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH The pace could prove hectic right now. You have a

lengthy to-do list. Be smart and get going. You might even enjoy yourself as you clear the decks. Communication guides your plans later in the day. Tonight: Not available!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You could feel tired and ready to end a project. Close your door and clear out as much as you can before the end of the workday. Somehow, magically, you will renew your energy as the day ends. Tonight: Letting off some steam.


HHHH Zero in on your priorities. You might not be aware of your active dream life last night. Somehow, you are guided by those dreams today. Do not worry if you find your actions illogical. They could be, but you might understand why. Tonight: Be mysterious.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Pressure builds to perform to the max. Your innate leadership skills emerge, allowing you to take charge and home in on a project. Your sense of humor appears midday as you eye a get-together with a dear friend. Tonight: Where the action is.

Dear Heloise: Looking for a job for which you’re overqualified? You need to prepare answers ahead of time so that you can respond without hesitation. The interviewer might ask why you are willing to work for less than you were making, or if you’ll be comfortable working with much younger people. Answer by stressing your interest in the work, not the money, and your enjoyment of working with younger people who are energized and focused. — Warren L., Princeton, N.J.

PILL BOTTLE DISPOSAL Dear Heloise: What is the best way to dispose of empty medication bottles? — Bea H., Tacoma, Wash.

HALLOWEEN MASKS AND CANDY Dear Heloise: You may want to warn your readers that Halloween masks might appeal to children, but they could slip over their eyes while they’re crossing the street and block their vision. Halloween makeup is a safer alternative. Also, before your children eat a single piece of candy, be sure to inspect all of it. Does it look like it’s been unwrapped? Is it a brand you recognize? If they picked up small toys along with the candy, is there a choking hazard with very small items, or can they get hurt with the toys handed out? Better safe than sorry. — Karen T., Clawson, Mich. Karen, I can’t stress enough how important it is for parents to inspect the “goodies” their children get on Halloween. Don’t take chances — take a look! — Heloise (c)2019 by King Features Syndicate Inc.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Others seem to be unusually dominant in your day plans. You barely have a chance to make a call without someone bouncing through the door with a request or an email asking for information. Tonight: Make the night yours.

As the ice melts, military ambitions in Alaska heat up By Michael Lockett Juneau Empire

The U.S. military has a long history in Alaska, ever since the Army took possession of the territory from Imperial Russia in 1867. But in those days, the Army used more to enforce regulations on Alaska Natives and less to protect them and improve their communities. So what’s changed in 150 years? “As an ethnic group, Alaska Natives and Native Americans served in the United States military at a higher percentage than any other ethnic group to be found across the United States of America,” said retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Randy “Church” Kee, executive director of Arctic Domain Awareness Center as part of a panel at the Alaska Federation of Natives annual conference last week. “The Alaska Native community and the uniformed services have extremely common values and extremely common interests.” Church and other leaders on the panel took time to recognize the huge contributions Alaska Natives have made to the United States military, though their service and support. Coming from a rough introduction, Alaska Natives have served in the military with distinction in many of the conflicts of the last century. “You’ve already heard the statistics about the veterans we have in Alaska,” said Brig. Gen. Torrence Saxe, the adjutant general for the Alaska National Guard. “Normal is 1 percent. Alaska is 10 percent, and it can be way higher in some villages.”

statement denying her allegations, including the denial of meeting her at a hotel. Zervos had approached lawyers in 2011 and sent Fox News an August 2015 email about her allegation, according to the filing. “Trump Hit On Me,” read the email’s subject line. Sent two months into Trump’s presidential campaign, the message said he “invited me to a hotel room under the guise of working for him. He

Saxe also discussed plans to increase operations in rural Alaska, placing them in close proximity with the Native communities in their homes. “I think that the Guard is way too focused in Anchorage and Fairbanks,” Saxe said. “I want to put the Guard back in rural Alaska.” Saxe said that the exercises would be centered around areas with runways in the 5,000-7,000 foot range to support aviation operations from larger military aircraft. He also said that exercises into more rural parts would begin in 2020 with an exercise in Bethel, a reversal on recent policy to concentrate forces and exercises in more urban areas. “In the last 14 months, your alert forces have intercepted 12 Russian bombers, four Russian fighter aircraft and four reconnaissance aircraft from the Russian air force that have penetrated the Alaska Identification Zone,” said Lt. Gen Tom A. Bussiere, commanding general of 11th Air Force, based out of Joint Base Elemendorf-Richardson. Bussiere said the Air Force was reinforcing its mission here in Alaska, providing air defense from any hostile threats to North American airspace, including the largest concentration of 5th generation fighters — F-22s and F-35s — in the country. The Air Force is also augmenting Clear Air Force Station and Fort Greely with enhanced radars for antiaircraft and anti-missile operations for defending against any hostile targets coming over the pole or Alaska. Other units are more focused on things at ground level. The Army Corps of Engineers has

had a different agenda.” Requests for comment was sent Thursday to the news network and to Gloria Allred, an attorney whom Zervos said she contacted in 2011. Allred was Zervos’ lawyer when she went public in 2016 but no longer represents her. Trump’s lawyers have said his statements were opinions and he had a free-speech right to defend himself. Zervos is seeking a retraction, an apology and damages. In her lawsuit, Zervos said Trump also kissed her unexpectedly at his office in Trump Tower in December

Kenai/Soldotna and Palmer/Wasilla. At their Thursday work session, the board also rescinded the policy that rotated the Upper Cook Inlet Finfish meeting locations between Palmer/Wasilla, Kenai/Soldotna and Anchorage. “The board considers Kenai as an option, Anchorage as an option and Palmer as an option, even though it’s been decided on in Anchorage these past 20 years or what have you,” Board member Israel Payton said at Thursday’s work session. “That’s the wisdom of the board at the time that that’s the best place to hold the meeting. It may not be fair to stakeholders in the Mat Su. It may not be fair to stakeholders on the Kenai Peninsula, but it’s what the board decided at the time that was just for all stakeholders.” When asked about the cost to host in each of the three communities, Board of Fisheries Executive Director Glenn Haight said that “surprisingly,” travel costs between the three locations are similar, all ranging between $115,00 to $120,000. He said the venue in Kenai was offered for free and would result in a $30,000 savings. The decision to hold a new vote on Thursday came after an investigation by the state ombudsman found that the board violated the Open Meetings Act. Alaska State Ombudsman Kate Burkhart found in a final Aug. 29 report that the Board of Fisheries violated the act when they decided in January 2019 to relocate the finfish meeting

Former state employee sues

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A former state attorney says she was fired improperly after Gov. Mike Dunleavy took office. The Anchorage Daily News reports former assistant public advocate Kelly Parker is the fourth former state employee to sue over

an active presence in Alaska, led by Col. Phillip Borders, the commander of the Alaska District for the ACOE. “One of the biggest things I love to talk about is that, in partnership in FY19, over 75 percent of small business contracts awarded by the Alaska district were awarded to Alaska Natives,” Borders said. The contracts had an estimated $180 million value, Borders said. The ACOE is also working actively with a number of communities on civil projects, such as flood and erosion control,

of 2007, before the alleged California encounter. Thursday’s court filing doesn’t include any calendar items related to that alleged encounter, but it does include emails from that autumn between Zervos and Trump’s secretary where they discuss a potential lunch date in New York. In a Dec. 3, 2007, email, Zervos tells the assistant she was in town and wanted to come by. There’s no reply email in the court filing. Thursday’s filing also has some redacted sections. Wang said they describe documents that corroborate

from the Kenai/Soldotna area to Anchorage. Burkhart said the board should hold another vote on the location of the 2020 meeting location, after providing notice. That vote took place Thursday. The ombudsman investigation found that while the board had provided notice of its January 2019 meeting, the notice did not include the board’s intent to revisit the issue of where the 2020 finfish meeting would be held. At the start of the Arctic-Yukon-Kuskokwim finfish meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 15, Board of Fisheries Chair Reed Morisky announced the board would likely be considering the Upper Cook Inlet meeting location at the end of the meeting. On Friday, Jan. 18, the board reversed their March 2018 decision with a 4-3 vote, moving the 2020 meeting back to Anchorage. During a break in the Jan. 18 meeting, Morisky told stakeholders from Kenai the board would not take up the issue of the location of the 2020 meeting, and those stakeholders left the meeting based on Morisky’s advice, the ombudsman’s release said. “Yes, I did speak with the Kenai official and he expressed that if it looked like we weren’t going to take this up, he wanted to leave,” Morisky said on the record at the Jan. 18 meeting, according to the ombudsman’s investigation. “And the conversation we had at the time was that it looked like weren’t going to take this up at the meeting. So, I take full responsibility for that, there was no intent to mislead. He left and circumstances changed, and I apologize for that but we’re here now and we’re going to vote on this.” The Upper Cook Inlet Finfish meeting is set to take place Feb. 7-20, 2020, at the Egan Center in Anchorage.

firings. The governor’s office deferred questions regarding the lawsuit to the Alaska Department of Law, which declined to comment. The Dunleavy transition team after the November election issued 1,200 requests for resignation letters and asked employees if they wanted to work on “this agenda” of the new governor. Parker said at the time the resignation letter would have appeared to require a pledge of loyalty, which conflicted with her duties to defend clients against state prosecution. She was fired Dec. 3. Another attorney and two former doctors from the Alaska Psychiatric Institute also have sued. — Associated Press

navigation improvement, coastal erosion control, and the remote and subsistence harbor assistance program, said Borders. Coast Guard District 17, based in Juneau, is also expanding operations, including a recent joint exercise with the Navy and Marine Corps as they sought to integrate some of the Coast Guard’s hard-won experience operating in the high Arctic. “It’s about 2,500 Coasties spread around the state, and they’re here for you,” said Rear Adm. Matt Bell, commanding

Zervos’ allegations “with even more granularity” but that Trump’s lawyers are blocking public release of the materials. The filing asks a court to declare they aren’t confidential. A court order Friday set a

officer of USCG D17. “They work for you, they protect you, they serve you across the expanse of Alaska.” Bell said that the Coast Guard has carried out more than 500 missions and saved 220 lives in the last year. They’ve also assisted more than 500 people in trouble, and saved almost $25 million across Alaska in vessels and assets saved, Bell said. “Given this state, given its distance, given its length, there’s no way the Coast Guard does it alone,” Bell said. “Partnerships are key.”

Dec. 6 deadline for Trump to undergo a deposition, a legal term for sworn questioning conducted out of court. His lawyers have tried to get the case dismissed, or at least delayed until he’s out of office.

After narrowly losing an appellate ruling in March, Kasowitz said he planned to appeal to New York’s highest court. He hasn’t thus far but made a technical filing last week that could signal an appeal is coming soon.
