Guilty plea to fatal stabbing at Alaska Zoo ANCHORAGE — An Anchorage man has pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder in the stabbing death of the head gardener at the Alaska Zoo. State prosecutors say Clayton Charlie, 34, on Tuesday pleaded guilty to killing 45-yearold Michael Greco on the grounds of the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage on Nov. 4. Greco had worked at the zoo since March 2014. A witness shortly after 7:30 a.m. Nov. 5 found Greco’s body in the lower parking lot of the zoo and called police. Charlie in his plea agreement admitted stabbing Greco multiple times and running him over with a vehicle. The plea agreement requires a sentence of 35 to 55 years in prison and restitution.

Report: No definitive reasons for post suicides FAIRBANKS — A study by a military behavioral health team has failed to pinpoint definitive reasons for soldier suicides at Fort Wainwright, but it found possible risk factors. A report obtained by KTVF-TV outlines steps taken by the team that responded to the post after U.S. Rep. Don Young asked for medical professionals to examine the situation. The review took place between March and September. Since May 2018, nine Fort Wainwright soldiers have died in cases not attributed to accident or other known cause. Four have been confirmed as suicides. The review identified 11 suicides between January 2014 and March of this year. Risk factors identified in the suicides included issues with pain, sleep and relationships, according to the executive summary of the report. It says its findings are consistent with past similar reviews. In the Fort Wainwright review, more than 4,000 soldiers also were surveyed. Among the findings, one out of every five soldiers feared being seen as weak for seeking behavioral-health care. About one-third of them described their recent sleep as poor. Of those, 41% said too much light See news, Page A2

Drivers beware: Moose out and about By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

As winter approaches, bringing with it shorter days and hazardous weather conditions, Alaskans are reminded to drive carefully and watch for dangers on the road — namely, grazing moose. “Moose are dark-colored animals and, with no snow yet on the ground for contrast, seeing them at night can be next to impossible,” Alaska State Trooper Captain Rick Roberts said in an Oct. 3 post on the Troopers Facebook page. Supervisory Fish and Wildlife Biologist for the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge John Morton said that

moose tend to congregate along the roadside in the winter months for two main reasons: the roads being plowed make them easier for calves to navigate, so the cows will bring their offspring to graze, and the salts used to keep the roads from freezing provide a tasty snack. This year, the Swan Lake Fire burned more than 160,000 acres of the Refuge, with much of that being moose habitat. Morton said that although there might be a slightly higher concentration of moose in the areas that weren’t burned, drivers should not expect any significant uptick in roadside moose sightings See moose, Page A3

‘I was concerned by the call’

Alexander Vindman, a lieutenant colonel, listened in on President Donald Trump’s July 25 conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy By Lisa Mascaro, Mary Clare Jalonick and Colleen Long Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Defying White House orders, an Army officer serving with President Donald Trump’s National Security Council testified to impeachment investigators Tuesday that he twice raised concerns over Trump’s push to have Ukraine investigate Democrats and Joe Biden. Alexander Vindman, a lieutenant colonel who served in Iraq and later as a diplomat, told House investigators behind closed doors that he listened to Trump’s July 25 call with new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and reported his concerns to the NSC’s lead counsel, according to his prepared testimony. His arrival in military blue, with medals, created a striking image as he entered the Capitol and made his way to the secure briefing room. “I was concerned by the call,” Vindman said, according to his testimony obtained by The Associated Press. “I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine.” Vindman, a 20-year military officer, was the first official who

current White House official to appear before the impeachment panels. With the administration directing staff not to appear, he was issued a subpoena to testify. The inquiry is looking into Trump’s

call, in which he asked Zelenskiy for a “favor” — to investigate Democrats — that the Democrats say was a quid pro quo for military aid and could be See call, Page A14

Pledge gives $5.7M to improve rural health care By Peter Segall Juneau Empire

Health insurance company Premera Blue Cross has pledged $5.7 million in grants to promote rural health care in Alaska. “Rural clinicians often do not have the resources to provide (certain) services,” said Jeff Roe, president and CEO of Premera

Blue Cross at a press conference in Anchorage Tuesday. “It is critical to invest in effective, long-term solutions to close the growing gap between urban and rural health care access.” The money from Premera will be split between the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC), the University of Alaska Anchorage with a grant-making

fund administered by the Rasmusen Foundation in partnership with the Alaska Community Foundation. T h e g ra n t- m a k i n g f u n d , known as the Rural Health Care Fund, will receive $3 million, the largest portion of Premera’s pledged money. Grants ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 will be given to rural outpatients

clinics, community health centers and hospitals for small capital improvement projects and medical equipment, according to Roe. UAA will receive $1.77 million to expand its nursing programs at all four of its campuses. Grant money will be used to expand the university’s Recruitment and Retention See care, Page A3

Soldotna, Seldovia vote to support climate change plan By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

The Soldotna and Seldovia city councils voted to support a climate change adaptation plan at the borough level. The Soldotna resolution, passed at the Oct. 24 Soldotna City Council meeting, supports the “inclusion of climate adaption and mitigation measures in the Kenai Peninsula Borough’s 2019 Comprehensive Plan.”

The Seldovia resolution, adopted at their Monday, Oct. 28 city council meeting, supports “the inclusion of practical climate adaption and mitigation measures” in the borough’s comprehensive plan. The comprehensive plan is used to continue developing the borough and is updated to reflect changing conditions, trends, laws, regulations and policies, according to the Kenai Peninsula Borough ordinance asking the assembly to approve the 2019

comprehensive plan. The comprehensive plan includes details on how climate change may impact the borough and strategies the borough can implement to combat and adapt to warming climate impacts. The last Kenai Peninsula Borough Comprehensive Plan was updated in 2005. The social, economic and environmental conditions of the Kenai Peninsula Borough have changed over the past 14 years, the ordinance said. Soldotna City Council member

Jordan Chilson introduced the resolution supporting a comprehensive plan that includes an outline for how the borough should address changes to the climate. The Kenai Peninsula Borough issued three disaster declarations this summer in response to wildfires and droughts caused by increased and unprecedented heat and dryness.

It also suggests the post request funding for sleep masks or blackout curtains to block the summer light. State Sen. Scott Kawasaki, a Democrat who represents the district that Fort Wainwright is in, said his office has been working on this issue for the past year. He said he reviewed the executive summary of the report, which he found to be a bit vague. He is still waiting to see the full report, which he hopes is made publicly available. “A document of this nature, which discusses soldiers and some of the critical issues about why suicide is being committed on our bases

Army spokesman John Pennell said Commanding General Major General Peter Andrysiak held a town hall with soldiers and their families in October to talk about quality of life issues on base. Another town hall is set for Tuesday as well. Pennell said the post is already working on implementing some of the recommendations from the report. “A lot of the recommendations are items that we can address immediately, whether it be something as simple as making sure that we offer soldiers more time with their families, we can put blackout curtains in the barracks and in housing so that the long summer daylight doesn’t keep people from sleeping,” he said.

measure calling for ranked-choice voting in statewide elections should be allowed to begin signature gathering, a judge has decided. The state plans to appeal the ruling. Superior Court Judge Yvonne Lamoureux in Anchorage found the application should have been certified and that the Division of Elections should let supporters begin gathering signatures to try to qualify the measure for the ballot, reported the Anchorage Daily News. Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer, following advice from Attorney General Kevin Clarkson, rejected certification in August. Department of Law spokeswoman Cori Mills said the state is asking Lamoureux to halt enforcement of her order while the state appeals. Jason Grenn, a former Anchorage legislator who co-chairs Alaskans for Better Elections, the group backing the measure, said the group will begin mobilizing its volunteers.

Once signature-gathering booklets are available, supporters have a year to collect signatures. But if they wish to get the measure on next year’s primary or general elections ballots, rather than wait until 2022, they must gather the required 28,501 signatures before the Alaska Legislature convenes in January. The elections proposal seeks to impose ranked-choice voting in statewide elections, install a nonpartisan primary election system and regulate so-called “dark money” campaign contributions. In a legal opinion, Clarkson wrote the breadth of the initiative violates a constitutional requirement that ballot measures be limited to a single subject. Meyer cited that opinion in rejecting certification. But Lamoureux ruled that all but one section deals with the part of state law covering elections. The outlying section deletes a cross-reference to that section. — Associated Press

KPC showcase presents “Unknown Asia: A Journey Across Bangladesh, Maldives, Mongolia and Sri Lanka” on Thursday Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m. In Summer of 2019 KPC Psychology Professor Dr. Paul Landen visited 13 countries in Asia and Oceana. He will share his experiences in four of the

watersheds, the Soldotna resolution said. The resolution noted that depleted local fisheries and a loss of natural environment would put the city at risk of strong economic and social harm. “I do believe that effective climate adaptation and mitigation measures are going to be integral to the continued resilience of our community,”

Chilson said at the Soldotna City Council meeting. The cities’ resolutions support a Regional Climate Change Adaption Plan, a Kenai Peninsula Borough Commission on Sustainability and other climate and mitigation measures listed in the final draft of the borough’s 2019 Comprehensive Plan.

Advice for motorists ■■ Reduce driving speeds at night and during adverse weather conditions to allow for more reaction time should an animal run into the road. ■■ Scan for wildlife on both sides of the road and along corridors and medians. ■■ Look for additional animals that may cross after the first one — cows are often accompanied by calves at this time of year. ■■ Watch for highway warning signs marking well-known moose-crossing areas. ■■ Increase distances between vehicles to allow for greater braking distances and reaction time. ■■ Watch for flickering headlights in oncoming traffic that may be caused by an animal crossing in front the vehicle. bulls, Speakman said. Speakman guessed that an extended rutting season for the moose meant that bulls are still chasing the cows

around — and sometimes that can mean chasing them across the road. Speakman also noted a high concentration of pickups on the Kenai Spur Highway in between Kenai and Soldotna, something she would not have expected given the proximity to human activity and the current road construction in the area.

The assembly has already received public comment in support of the climate action plan’s inclusion, including two public comments at the Oct. 8 assembly meeting and

10 letters sent to the borough asking to “protect our future.” The letters encourage a climate action plan that includes adaptation measures, renewable energy strategies and a carbon footprint reduction. At the Nov. 5 assembly meeting, there will be a public hearing and the assembly will vote on the plan’s approval.

Speakman, known locally as “Laurie the Moose Lady,” has been picking up roadkill moose with the Alaska Moose Federation on the peninsula since 2012. Her organization helps deliver the roadkill to approved charities that process the animal and give the meat to families in need. The process works like this: if someone hits a moose while driving, they should call 911 and report the accident immediately. As emergency vehicles respond to the scene to provide medical attention to the driver and any passengers, wildlife troopers will contact one of 37 charities on the peninsula that have signed up for the roadkill salvage program. The charities are responsible for picking up the moose, and if they do not have the equipment necessary to transport the animal they call the Alaska Moose Federation so that Speakman or one of her other

drivers deliver it to them. AMF does not have a contract with the state, and Speakman said they have to rely on donations and sponsorships from the charities to cover their expenses. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game keeps track of the number of moose killed on the roads each year, and Wildlife Technician Kurt Strausbaugh said that Speakman and the Alaska Moose Federation are an important part of recording the roadkill data for the peninsula. “Laurie’s a great asset to the community,” Strausbaugh said. Fish and Game tracks the number of moose killed from July 1 to June 30. The number for 2018-2019 was 238, 232 for 2017-2018, and 262 for 20162017, Strausbaugh said. The average for the Kenai Peninsula is about 250 moosevehicle collisions per year, according to Fish and Game’s website.

What others say

Court was right to shut down tax disclosure law


here was never a good reason for California to try punishing President Trump by requiring candidates to disclose their income tax returns in order to appear on the primary election ballot. But life in our virtual oneparty state meant that a state law was passed anyway to do exactly that. Fortunately, a judge struck it down. Alex Padilla, California’s secretary of state, is bent on saving the law. So is Gov. Gavin Newsom, who informed a federal court of his intention to file an appeal. Both men should cut it out and focus on the state’s more important business. Senate Bill 27, introduced by Sens. Mike McGuire, D-Healdsburg and Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, was similar to a bill vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2017. “While I recognize the political attractiveness — even the merits — of getting President Trump’s tax returns, I worry about the political perils of individual states seeking to regulate presidential elections in this manner,” noted Brown in his veto message, which also raised questions about the constitutionality of the proposal and the risk of a slippery slope should the bill become law. But that didn’t stop the Legislature and Newsom from going ahead with it anyway this time around. The bill was signed in July. As expected, the law was challenged and a judge quickly recognized the follies of the law. As to the ruling, Eastern District of California Judge Morrison England, Jr. put the matter clearly: “the Act’s provisions likely violate the Constitution and the laws of the United States.” England further noted that deciding “whether a tax return disclosure requirement is good policy or makes political sense” is not a matter for a court. It is not a matter for a legislature either. Applying nakedly political tests to candidates creates a “troubling minefield” for citizens seeking public office. Even though he expressed understanding and empathy for “the motivations” behind the law, England properly shut down this latest instance of activist Sacramento lawmaking that reaches into the smallest and most fundamental details of political life for one-off reasons. Yet Padilla has gone so far as to claim that the now-invalidated law is “fundamental to preserving and protecting American democracy” — a claim with no connection to reality and limitless in its potential application — and wants to appeal the ruling. Opening the door to political tests for qualification for candidacy would, contrary to Padilla’s poetic license, fundamentally threaten and suppress the democratic process. Each year would bring struggles over which qualifications would apply to which positions, and which would be repealed in time for the latest vote. Padilla and Newsom likely know this well, and are simply working every level they have at their considerable disposal to harass and harry Trump before Election Day. While cynical, this would at least be a clever piece of political strategizing. But it still makes a dangerous mockery of our legal and political system. Their appeal should be dropped. Californians, regardless of their political inclinations or opinion of President Trump or even the wisdom of him releasing his tax returns, should see this hollow political stunt for what it is. California has enough real problems to deal with. This sideshow is an unnecessary waste of time. — The Orange County Register, Oct. 20

I applaud Sen. Lisa Murkowski for her good work on climate changerelated issues, both as it relates to concrete measures as well as the constructive discussion of the bigger picture. Last week she took two important steps. She introduced bipartisan legislation to advance geothermal energy development. This piece of legislation directs USGS to identify new geothermal opportunities in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico; it creates a new initiative to transfer and adapt key technologies from the oil and gas sector that are relevant to geothermal development; it modifies the definition of renewable energy to include geothermal energy and waste heat; it advances geothermal R&D, and it improves federal geothermal permit

coordination. Equally important, she joined the bipartisan Senate Climate Solutions Caucus formed earlier in the week by her fellow Republican Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) and Democratic Senator Chris Coons (D-DE). The founding members describe the caucus as “a bipartisan group of senators who, like the Americans we serve, believe Congress should play a central role in guiding America’s 21st century energy economy and addressing the challenge of a changing climate. Our caucus seeks to take the politics out of this important issue.” This is a major milestone: the group will be the only dedicated space for bipartisan climate discussions in the Senate. This issue is bigger than any one of us, bigger than any one party. Sen. Murkowski, thank you for your good work and leadership on this front. — Anna-Maria Mueller Soldotna

With DACA at risk, Congress must take action W

hen I immigrated to the United States from China, I was told that America was the land of opportunity, where hard work could take you anywhere you dreamed. I took that lesson to heart, and in my current medical practice I have the privilege of working with veterans, including many who immigrated here and felt compelled to serve. I have a deep admiration for them, and for this country that has made acceptance and opportunity for all people such a core part of its values. Unfortunately, a crucial program in America’s immigration system — the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and its recipients — is in danger. Since 2012, the DACA program has protected young immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation and afforded them the ability to legally live, study, and work in the United States. The program has been a resounding success, bringing many economic and community benefits to our state and nation. However, despite these benefits, the Trump Administration rescinded the program in September 2017 and called on Congress to act. Since then, and in the face of

congressional inaction, the program has been stuck in legal limbo and the Supreme Court is now set to hear oral arguments regarding the legality of the administration’s rescission of the program this November. This could result in the issuance of a decision stripping Dreamers of their protections as early as this coming January. This would be catastrophic for the nearly 700,000 DACA recipients in the U.S., as well as their family, friends, employers, students, teachers and all those that rely on them. These applicants have submitted applications, paid fees, passed thorough background checks, and renewed their status every two years in order for the ability to work and study legally in the U.S. DACA authorized workers are fully integrated into the economy, contributing a significant amount to tax revenue and GDP. Data drawn from a Queens College report and a National Immigration Law Center survey estimates that removing all DACA authorized workers would result in a loss of $460.3 billion from the national GDP over the course of a decade. Public opinion is also on Dreamers’ side, with 86% of Americans supporting passage of a long-term legislative

solution for them. Americans from both sides of the aisle agree that these young people are important members of our communities and economies. This past June, the House of Representative passed the American Dream and Promise Act, which would provide a pathway to citizenship for our nation’s Dreamers, in an overwhelming and bipartisan manner. This legislation would finally give Dreamers and those that rely on them legislative certainty. Americans — and Alaskans — have always believed that if you work hard, nothing should stand in your way. DACA recipients have proven themselves to be valuable and productive members of our community. They are our friends, neighbors, and coworkers. We should continue to welcome them, as we have for years and as this country once did for me. It’s now up to Sen. Lisa Murkowski to continue to support Dreamers and work with her Senate colleagues to pass permanent protections for them through legislation such as the American Dream and Promise Act before the Supreme Court decides their future. Dr. Luke Liu is an anesthesiologist based in Anchorage.

As Sessions considers campaign, rivals emphasize Trump feud By Kim Chandler and Alan Fram Associated Press

letter to the editor

Murkowski takes action on climate issues


MONTGOMERY, Ala. — As Jeff Sessions explores a campaign to reclaim the Senate seat he held for 20 years, he’s finding much has changed since he left — namely, President Donald Trump. His potential Republican primary rivals said Tuesday that they would not clear the field for the former senator and signaled they were ready to use his tumultuous tenure as Trump’s attorney general against him. Trump has called Sessions “the biggest mistake” of his presidency and some candidates for the Senate seat have suggested they would not let voters forget it. Former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville said in a statement that Sessions “had a chance to stand and defend the President and he failed.” “If the voters of Alabama want a career politician as their next U.S. Senator, then they have plenty of choices. If they want a political outsider who will stand with President Trump and fight the DC establishment when it matters the most, then I am the only choice,” Tuberville said. The Associated Press reported Monday that multiple Republican sources say Sessions is making calls exploring a possible run for his former Senate seat. The three

Republicans spoke on condition of anonymity so they could speak more freely about closely held conversations. Sessions represented Alabama in the U.S. Senate from 1997 to 2017 and left the Senate to become Trump’s first attorney general. He was later ousted after enduring repeated public mocking from Trump for recusing himself from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. In a state where the president is largely beloved, the bitter breakup between Sessions and the president could be a liability. U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne told the AP that he will “absolutely” stay in the race if Sessions becomes a candidate. “The president does not want him to be the U.S. senator for Alabama. I know,” Byrne said. Asked if he has talked to Trump about this, Byrne replied: “I know. And I don’t think a state like Alabama that’s so pro-President Trump is going to react favorably to someone who’s running as the president’s opposition.” Byrne said he spoke to Sessions last week for less than 10 minutes but declined to disclose the subject of the private conversation. Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who lost the 2017 special election to Sen. Doug Jones, said he will stay in the 2020 race regardless of what Sessions decides. Despite the criticism from Trump, Sessions has continued to praise the

president. In a speech earlier this month at a Republican Party fundraiser in Huntsville, Sessions reiterated his support for Trump even as he joked about life after being “fired” from a job. Sessions praised Trump’s effort on trade, immigration and foreign policy. “That’s why I supported him and why I still do support him,” Sessions told the crowd of about 500. “He is relentlessly and actually honoring the promises he made to the American people.” Sessions has $2.4 million in a campaign account, according to campaign finance records. Byrne, the best-financed Republican in the race, has about $2.5 million cash on hand. Sessions, who was state attorney general before being elected to the Senate, also has more than two decades of support from Alabama voters. “I suspect Sessions would become an immediate front-runner if he were to enter the race,” said David Hughes, a political scientist at Auburn University in Montgomery. “We know from past experience in the 2017 U.S. Senate special primary that Republican voters are willing to buck the president’s preferences. And Sessions has done little to distance himself from Trump. I have no a priori reason to believe state Republicans have turned on Sessions,” Hughes said.

Dems unveil impeachment resolution; vote Thursday By Matthew Daly Associated Press

WASHINGTON — House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled legislation authorizing the next phase of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, as Democrats move to nullify complaints from Trump and his Republican allies that the impeachment process is illegitimate and unfair. An eight-page resolution calls for open hearings and requires the House Intelligence Committee to submit a report outlining its findings and recommendations, with a final recommendation on impeachment left to the Judiciary Committee. Republicans would be allowed to request subpoenas, but such requests would ultimately be subject to a vote by the full committee, which Democrats control

as the House majority. House Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern of Massachusetts said the resolution provides “a clear path forward” as the House begins a public phase of the impeachment inquiry, which up to this point has largely consisted of closeddoor interviews. “This is a sad time for our country,” McGovern said. “None of us came to Congress to impeach a president, but each of us took a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution.” “The president’s Republican allies in Congress have tried to hide the president’s conduct, but the American people will now see the facts firsthand,” he added. The impeachment inquiry is looking into Trump’s July 25 call in which he asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy for a “favor” — to investigate a

Democratic rival for president. Democrats say the request and other actions by the administration to push Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family amounted to a quid pro quo for important military aid for Ukraine, providing sufficient grounds for impeachment. The House is expected to vote on the resolution Thursday amid complaints from Trump and his Republicans allies that the monthlong impeachment process is illegitimate and unfair. Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the No. 2 House Republican, denounced what he called a “Soviet-style impeachment process” led by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff of California. More than 75 percent of House members have been unable to view what is happening in closed-door

depositions conducted by the Intelligence panel and two other committees, Scalise said. “That represents more than 230 million Americans whose voices are denied right now,” he said. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, said Democrats “have basically cooked up a process they have been conducting in secret” with the goal of preventing Trump’s lawyers from asking questions of witnesses. Democrats “are now attempting to sort of put a cloak of legitimacy around this process by saying they’re going to bring it to a vote on the floor,” Cheney said. “They can’t fix it. The process is broken. It’s tainted.” Democrats insisted they were not yielding to Republican pressure and dismissed a GOP argument that impeachment can’t begin

without a formal House vote. Schiff and other Democrats defended the process and said the American people will soon hear from witnesses in an open setting, with transcripts of depositions already conducted set for public release. “The evidence we have

already collected paints the picture of a president who abused his power by using multiple levers of government to press a foreign country to interfere in the 2020 election,” Schiff and three other committee chairs said in a statement Tuesday.

Brexit ballot: UK lawmakers support Dec. 12 election By Jill Lawless and Danica Kirka Associated Press

LONDON — Britons will be heading out to vote in the dark days of December after the House of Commons on Tuesday backed an early national vote that could break the country’s political impasse over Brexit — or turn

out to be merely a temporary distraction. Prime Minister Boris Johnson hopes electing a new crop of lawmakers will give his Conservative Party a majority and break the stalemate that blocked his plan to take Britain out of the European Union this month. This week the EU granted Britain a three-month Brexit extension

until Jan. 31. But after three years of inconclusive political wrangling over Brexit, British voters are weary and the results of an election are hard to predict. The House of Commons voted 438-20 — with dozens of lawmakers abstaining — for a bill authorizing an election on Dec. 12.

It will become law once it is approved Wednesday by the unelected House of Lords, which does not have the power to overrule the elected Commons. Even before the result was announced, the political parties were in campaign mode. Johnson — who has had to abandon his vow to lead Britain out of the EU on

Oct. 31 “do or die” — accused his opponents of seeking to frustrate voters’ decision to leave the EU and prolong the Brexit process “until the 12th of never.” “There is only one way to get Brexit done in the face of this unrelenting parliamentary obstructionism, this endless, willful, fingers crossed, ‘not me guv’ refusal

to deliver on the mandate of the people — and that is to refresh this Parliament and give the people a choice,” Johnson said. The road to polling day opened up when the main opposition Labour Party, which had opposed three previous attempts by Johnson to trigger an election, changed its position.

Senators grill Boeing CEO over plane involved in 2 crashes By David Koenig Associated Press

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg faced withering questions from senators Tuesday about two crashes of 737 Max jets and whether the company concealed information about a critical flight system. “We have made mistakes, and we got some things w ro n g ,” Mu i l e n b u r g conceded. Some members of the Senate Commerce Committee cut Muilenburg off when

they believed he was failing to answer their questions about a key flight-control system implicated in both crashes. Boeing successfully lobbied regulators to keep any explanation of the system, called MCAS, from pilot manuals and training. After the crashes, the company tried to blame the pilots, said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. “Those pilots never had a chance,” Blumenthal said. Passengers “never had a chance. They were in flying coffins as a result of Boeing deciding that it was going

Strict abortion ban blocked MONTGOMERY, Ala. —A federal judge on Tuesday blocked Alabama’s near-total abortion ban from taking effect next month and called the law — part of a wave of new abortion restrictions by conservative states — clearly unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson issued a preliminary injunction temporarily blocking Alabama from enforcing the law that would make performing an abortion a felony in almost all cases. The ruling came after abortion providers sued to block the law from taking effect Nov. 15. The injunction was widely expected and will remain in place until Thompson decides the full case. “Alabama’s abortion ban contravenes clear Supreme Court precedent,” Thompson wrote in an accompanying opinion. “It violates the right of an individual to privacy, to make choices central to personal dignity and autonomy. It diminishes the capacity of women to act in society, and to make reproductive decisions. It defies the United States Constitution.”

Utilities: Equipment likely sparked fires LOS ANGELES — Two Southern California utilities acknowledged Tuesday that it is likely their equipment

sparked wildfires that killed three people and destroyed hundreds of homes. A wildfire that erupted Monday and destroyed a dozen homes in the starstudded Brentwood area of Los Angeles probably erupted when Santa Ana winds drove a dried eucalyptus tree branch into a Department of Water and Power line, causing it to arc and spark, the utility announced.

Man tries to open bank account with fake $1M bill LINCOLN, Neb. — Police are searching for a man who walked into a bank in Nebraska this week and tried to open a checking account with a fake $1 million bill. Staff at the Pinnacle Bank branch in Lincoln reported the Monday morning incident to police. The Lincoln Journal Star reported that bank employees say the man was adamant that the bill was real despite tellers’ attempts to convince him otherwise. The man eventually left with the bill, but without a new account. Police are reviewing surveillance video to try to identify the man. Police say they want to check on his welfare and make sure he was not the victim of a crime. The largest denomination note ever issued for public circulation was the $10,000 bill. — Associated Press

to conceal MCAS from the pilots.” Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Il., said Boeing “set those pilots up for failure” by not telling them how the response to a nose-down command on the Max differed from previous 737s. “Boeing has not told the whole truth to this committee and to the families and to the people looking at this ... and these families are suffering because of it,” a visibly angry Duckworth said as she pointed to relatives of passengers who died.

Muilenburg denied that Boeing ever blamed the pilots. Several times this spring and summer he said the accidents were caused by a “chain of events,” not a single factor. The comments were widely seen as deflecting blame, including to the pilots. The CEO told senators Tuesday that Boeing has always trained pilots to respond to the same effect caused by an MCAS failure -- a condition called runaway trim -- which can be caused by other problems. Muilenburg and Boeing’s

chief engineer for commercial airplanes, John Hamilton, spent about 80 minutes at the witness table. The committee

then heard from two safety officials who helped shape reports about the Boeing plane.

Today in History Today is Tuesday, Oct. 29, the 302nd day of 2019. There are 63 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 29, 2012, Superstorm Sandy slammed ashore in New Jersey and slowly marched inland, devastating coastal communities and causing widespread power outages; the storm and its aftermath were blamed for at least 182 deaths in the U.S. On this date: In 1787, the opera “Don Giovanni” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart had its world premiere in Prague. In 1901, President William McKinley’s assassin, Leon Czolgosz (CHAWL’-gahsh), was electrocuted. In 1911, Hungarian-born American newspaperman Joseph Pulitzer, 64, died in Charleston, S.C. In 1923, the Republic of Turkey was proclaimed. In 1929, “Black Tuesday” descended upon the New York Stock Exchange. Prices collapsed amid panic selling and thousands of investors were wiped out as America’s “Great Depression” began. In 1956, during the Suez Canal crisis, Israel invaded Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. “The Huntley-Brinkley Report” premiered as NBC’s nightly television newscast. In 1957, former MGM studio boss Louis B. Mayer died in Los Angeles at age 75. In 1960, a chartered plane carrying the California Polytechnic State University football team crashed on takeoff from Toledo, Ohio, killing 22 of the 48 people on board. In 1967, Expo 67 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, closed after six months. In 1987, following the confirmation defeat of Robert H.

Trip to Colorado, Part II: What memories are made of


e arrived in Denver, after I got my purse strap untangled from my wheelie luggage at the airport in Anchorage. I slung that overloaded purse over my shoulder the rest of the trip. Arriving in Denver International Airport (DIA) and getting to our luggage was uneventful. The airport is situated in the middle of a large cow pasture in the middle of nowhere, east of Denver. Bernie’s good friends from Erie, Lillian and Chuck, picked us up and took me to Boulder where my sister, Ginger, and Mom lived. Bernie went home with Lillian. Our stay was very eventful at times! My Mother was so glad to see me in her own little fashion. She was frail and old, suffering from the first stages of Alzheimer’s, but full of big smiles. I unpacked the next morning and showed Mom a hat that Bernie had made for me out of cute purple flower fabric. The brim could be bent and shaped in any

Pioneer potluck ‘Grannie’ Annie Berg form you chose. It also had a big purple fabric rose pinned to the side. Mom fell in love with it. I wore it, she wore it, I wore it and she would take it off my head and put it on hers. We played the hat game all day. The next morning the purple hat was resting on the dresser next to my bedroom door. I looked up just in time to see an old wrinkled hand with a crooked finger grab the hat. Mom poked her head in the door of the bedroom, slammed the hat on her fuzzy, gray-haired head and skip-ran down the hall, smiling and laughing, “tee-hee,

tee-hee.” She pulled out a chair and sat down at the breakfast table and started eating her oatmeal with the purple hat on. If I came near her she would grab the brim of the hat and pull it down around her ears and say with a big grin, “IT’S MINE!” She wore the hat off and on each day I was there. We had so much fun with the purple hat. When I left the hat was in her bedroom and I told her she could have it. “Thank you!” she said with a big, big grin. I have a feeling that hat was hers the very first day! When she passed away, my great niece Kaylia wore it and then sent it to me. I wore it off and on and gave it to Susan so she could wear Grandma’s hat. I treasure the memory of My Mom and the Purple Hat. Thank you Bernie for the wonderful memories. Make sure you make memories every day. They are important! Our trip was over after visiting

our relatives in Colorado, and it was time to return to Alaska. I was at Ginger’s in Boulder and Bernie was at Erie. We decided to take a shuttle bus to the Denver Airport and save on all the time it takes for Ginger to take us to and then return home, which would be about four hours. Bernie came to Ginger’s house and the shuttle came by her house and took us to the hotel where we loaded more passengers in 98 degree heat and 99% humidity. The bus was sweltering hot! We tried to pry on the windows open — they would not open! The driver of the bus got on. “Heheheheh,” he says in his Aussie accent. “Anyone know where the airport is? And by the way our airconditioning is kaput — sorry!” He settled down in the driver’s seat, started the bus and chugged along 30 to 35 miles an hour, sometimes slower than a snail, all the way out of Boulder, onto a cow path of a road. We went through several small

towns, all the way to the airport. It was built several miles from Denver. Bernie was patient, but noisy about the hot air and no air conditioning. As for me — this old Alaskan gal was just plan HOT! We finally got to the airport in a little over an hour. We dragged our wheelie luggage across the large expanse of the airport and checked in, and had time to spare. So what do you do with Bernie in an airport? You go eat! We ate something very nondescript and looked in all the shops on our way to the passenger boarding area. We sat and we sat and we sat. Finally, Bernie jumps up and says, “I’m going to get a drink of water and go to the bathroom. You stay with our luggage and then you can go.” “OK,” I say. “But hurry! They just may want to board any minute now.” Bernie looks at me and says, “OH POOH! We have lots of time.” See annie, Page A8

Wisconsin visit inspires scrumptious recipes By Teri Robl Homer News

(This column originally appeared in the Oct. 17 edition of the Homer News) As you are enjoying this week’s edition of the Homer News, I am in Wisconsin surrounded by autumn’s foliage splendor in vibrant colors of red, gold, yellow, maroon and brown. The leaves on the trees putting on their annual finest are so vibrant in color they seem illuminated. I’m having fun shopping for my favorite Wisconsin cheeses and looking forward to trying new ones that I’ve added to my basket to bring back to Alaska to enjoy over the winter. We’ll make sure to visit hometown candy shops to purchase favorite candies. I love the milk chocolate covered toffee and the Other Fisherman has a preference for turtles and chocolate-peanut melt aways. These shops have been making homemade candy for more than 100 years and they have decadent and delicious down to perfection. We are enjoying dining on lake perch, walleye and deep-fried cheese curds served up in taverns, restaurants and diners scattered everywhere around the state. Food here is not fussy, just delicious and served in plentiful portions. The pizza is excellent, as it’s topped with creamy, fresh cheese from America’s Dairyland and sausage made with Wisconsin raised beef and pork, perfectly spiced and cured from recipes that were brought over from Germany, Poland and other European countries known for their sausage making skills. It’s almost impossible to find anything close to the quality and taste of Wisconsin cheese and sausage. Beer is most likely the most popular adult beverage here with the old-fashioned cocktail coming in at second place. We’re going to cheer on the Green Bay Packers going to Lambeau stadium for their games, and tailgating on all sorts of Wisconsin made goodies before going into the game. I am going to introduce our fellow tailgate party crew to Kenai River cheese dip originally made at Echo Lake Meats and also make a big batch of smoked salmon dip to share. They will most likely request my creamy seafood chowder to be served up hot during a cool fall evening. As I can never get enough cheese, I wanted to share a gloriously puffed-up Parmesan, Fontina, and country ham-studded Dutch baby that gets kissed with an aromatic spritz of lemon juice and sprinkled with a little fresh horseradish just before serving. I’d advise doing a dress rehearsal before inviting the family over to meet the baby, but it’s a pretty simple technique once

you’ve got the hang of it. Dutch baby, or fluffy pancake, recipes are versatile and can be made savory or sweet. Dutch babies are welcome at the table any time of day, at breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or as an appetizer. Ham and Cheese Dutch Baby 3 eggs ¼ cup flour Pinch of salt ¼ cup milk 2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese 4 tablespoons chopped ham 2 tablespoons grated Fontina cheese (can substitute provolone, gouda, mild brick) Juice of 1/4 lemon (optional) Fresh horseradish, to grate (optional) Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Combine eggs, milk and Parmesan. Sift flour and salt, then mix the wet into dry by whisking. Place butter in a heavy 10-inch skillet and place on the stove over medium heat. Render ham until it becomes crispy, about 2 minutes. Add butter to the pan, watching for it to just begin to foam. Add the Dutch baby batter to the pan and grate the fontina on top. Add the pan to the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, until the pancake is puffed and golden. Remove pancake from oven and garnish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and grate of horseradish. u u u

It’s pumpkin season and I am in the heart of a beautiful state full of so many pumpkins. Pumpkins are growing in patches as we drive through the countryside, sitting on the ground at roadside stands next to squash and gourds for sale so cheap they are practically free, at farms sitting on lawns and parked in hay wagons in every size of pumpkin imaginable, signs posting them for sale at $1 - $5. You can find them resting in front of every gas station for sale and piled into huge bins in every grocery store. They are so many pumpkins here I can’t imagine what happens to all of those left without being carved up and set on a front porch to adorn come Halloween. Maybe there is a big pumpkin patch in the sky where they all end up and are made into pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin roll A thin pumpkin cake, rolled around in a white cream filling, then in nuts. Can be frozen and served chilled. Dust with confectioners sugar, if desired. 3 eggs 1 cup white sugar 2 ⁄3 cup canned pumpkin 1 teaspoon lemon juice 3 ⁄4 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Quick and easy dinner served on a bun Clarion news service

Busy families often find it hard to serve quickly prepared meals. But before going to the nearest drivethrough, family chefs should know that many homecooked meals can be whipped up in a pinch. During barbecue season, burgers are often a go-to meal for their convenience and portability. But another bun- and beef-based option is readily available — and it could stir up nostalgia for comforting family meals of years past. It’s hard to beat the savory flavor and deliciously messy trappings of Sloppy Joes. As the name implies, this isn’t a meal for someone who likes to keep things neat. In fact, part of the fun of Sloppy Joes, for

adults and children alike, is the chance to get a little messy at the dinner table. Here’s a recipe for “Classic Sloppy Joes,” courtesy of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Classic Sloppy Joes Serves 4 1 pound ground beef (93% lean or leaner) 1 cup minced sweet onion 1 cup minced green bell pepper 1 can (14 1⁄2 ounces) unsalted tomato sauce 1 ⁄4 cup barbecue sauce 1 ⁄4 cup ketchup 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon dry mustard

4 whole wheat hamburger buns or 8 slider buns Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, cook 3 to 5 minutes until golden brown. Add ground beef and bell pepper; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking beef into 1⁄2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Stir in tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and mustard; increase heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil; cook 5 to 10 minutes, or until sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally. Season with salt, as desired. Divide beef mixture evenly among buns. Top with pickles, coleslaw and cheese, if desired. Close the sandwiches. Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

Annie From Page A7

Off she goes looking into windows and disappears into the bathroom just as the boarding lady announced, time at last to board the airplane! I waited for all the passengers to board and watched and watched for Bernie. The boarding lady asked me if I was getting on, just as Bernie comes sauntering out of the bathroom, slowly saunters across the hall to the water fountain. I hollered “Bernie! Bernie! They are boarding!” She did not hear me! I said to the lady “Shall I go get her?” “No!” she says. “‘Just get on the plane!” I started waving to Bernie, she saw me and waved back! “Hurry! Hurry!” I shout! Finally she got the message! We were the last ones on the plane. We sat down in our seats after getting our wheelie luggage stowed above our heads. The door of the airplane slams shut and the airplane slowly backs up, then it stops! We wait and we wait. “It’s HOT in here,” I say. “Wheeie! YES IT IS!!” says Bernie. Just then the pilot announces, “Ladies and gentlemen we will be sitting here for a few minutes until the thunder and lightning and rain pass over. Please be patient.” Now Bernie in all her wisdom, cannot understand, first why I was in such a hurry for her to get on the airplane that was not going

anywhere. After a few minutes, about 10, she jumped up and shouts to the stewardess. “Can’t you take this airplane back to the terminal and let us off? I am not through shopping yet or at least you could serve us something cold to drink!” Some of the passengers applauded and agreed. They brought her a bottle of cold water, probably just shut her up. The other passengers want to know where she got the cold water. So Bernie, the most helpful and accommodating person I know, runs back and forth arranging peoples’ lives and getting them something to drink. I hid my face and tried to ignore her friendly jabber. Finally after an hour, which Bernie thought was an hour too long, we were in the air. We slumped back in our seats and slept. Because we had stayed so long on the ground in Denver, in a hot airplane, our arrival time in Anchorage was late. That made our connection with the little airplane to Kenai almost late. Bernie announced to me, “Now when we get in the airport we will have to run to the boarding gate, so when we get off, just follow me — OK?” Landing in Anchorage, we grabbed our wheelie luggage and we hit the terminal on the run. Bernie takes off to the left and I follow, thinking she is in control and always has a plan and knows exactly what she was doing! Wrong! The airport was jammed with passengers. We ran

Makes about 12 2 cups granulated sugar 2 ⁄3 cup light (white) corn syrup 1 cup water 1 ⁄2 teaspoon food coloring of choice 1 ⁄2 teaspoon oil flavoring of choice 2 large baking sheets 2 quart heavy saucepan Candy thermometer Lollipop sticks In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring the sugar, corn syrup and water to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves and the mixture begins to boil. Cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes to dissolve the sugar crystals on the sides of the pan. Remove the lid. Cook, without stirring, to the hard crack stage (300 F). Remove from the heat. Quickly add the coloring and flavoring, stirring only until mixed. Let the candy cool for about 5 minutes or until starting to thicken. To check if it’s ready, spoon a small amount onto the prepared baking sheet. It should flow and spread slowly rather than spreading very quickly to a thin disc. Once the candy is ready, quickly drop from the tip of a large spoon onto the prepared baking sheet, making certain the drops are round. Press a lollipop stick into the edge of each lollipop before it hardens. If desired, spoon a little more of the candy on top of the stick to cover. Press any decorations into the lollipop at the same time. Loosen the lollipops from the pan before they get too cold or they will crack. To store, wrap the cooled lollipops in cellophane or waxed paper.

Quick and easy Greek-inspired sandwiches The same foods served time and again can get boring pretty quickly. Offering up new options doesn’t have to be complicated, and parents may discover an array of foods and flavors that their kids will enjoy and ask for in the future. Such can be the case with Greek-inspired gyros. The fillings can vary depending on the ingredients available in the house. For “Turkey Meatball Gyros” from the “Taste of Home: Healthy Cooking Cookbook” (RDA Enthusiast Brands) by the editors of Taste of Home, the meatballs can be made the night before or in big batches and frozen to be used as needed. The yogurt sauce in this recipe is reminiscent of traditional Greek tzatziki, which is fresh and flavorful.

down behind a big, long line of waiting passengers in the main lobby, pulling our wheelie luggage. The big overloaded purses were slung over our shoulders. We ran and bumped down some stairs, down the long hallway of the old airport, all the way to the end. Bernie stopped. “I catch up!” She says to a man, “Where’s the airplane?” The kind man says, “What airplane?” “The one to Kenai,” Bernie says. “Oh, this is the old part of the airport. They are in the other end at the new part.” The man pointed in the same direction we had just come from. “Oh, I forgot! Thanks.” She turns her luggage around shouts, “Come ON!” Off she runs in the same direction we came from, pulling her wheelie behind her. I had a very hard time keeping up with her. As we dragged and bumped our way up the stairs and behind all those people we just ran passed, I saw smoke coming out of her luggage! I shouted “Bernie your wheel is on fire.” She stopped and looked at me like I was crazy. Everybody was looking at us like we WERE two old crazy ladies running a marathon in the airport. She flipped her luggage over, grabbed the wheel and burnt your fingers! “Ouch! That darn thing is hot and look I have a flat tire,” she said with a big grin! “What in the world?” Knowing we were on a

deadline she flipped the flat tire wheelie over and ran off pulling that poor worn-out piece of luggage sideways down the hall, screaming at me, “Come on! Hurry up — let’s go, we are going to miss our plane!” We made it to the boarding gate just in time. “Well, you ladies are lucky, we’re just about to close up and fly away!” We laughed all the way home — crazy ladies — yup! So glad to be home the next day I unpacked. P.S.: Apparently while we were running through the airport, first one way and then the other, the wheel of her luggage got stuck and the friction from the carpet finally caught it on fire. The whole side of the plastic wheel had been rubbed off before it finally caught fire. The statement, “Bernie your wheel is on fire,” and her shouting to me, “Look I have a flat tire!” caught the attention of all the long lines of waiting passengers. Bernie called me in total hysteria! While we were running up the down the hallway, some of our neighbors, distant acquaintances and good friends, were standing in line, watching us. First, the wrong way, then watching us running back to the other end of the airport. They watched us shouting at each other about a flat tire and

wondering why the darn thing caught on fire. They watched us, on the run, round the corner and down the hall to the new part of the airport. They said it was quite entertaining, especially because they knew us! And that is the end of this story of our 1995 trip to Colorado. We are still good friends and laugh about our memories of our special trip. By the way, Bernie proofread this and by the end of this story we were laughing tears again.

Kenai netters take charge of Homer’s senior night By Megan Pacer Homer News

The Homer Mariner volleyball team suffered an emotional loss to Kenai Central High School on senior recognition night Tuesday. The Kardinals won the Southcentral Conference match 3-0 in three close, intense sets during the last home game for the Mariners — the last time the team’s four seniors (Kelli Bishop, Karmyn Gallios, Kitri Classen and Marina Carroll) would take to their home court. With set scores of 25-20, 25-22 and 25-22, Kenai

advanced to 9-3 in the league, which Homer dropped to 5-3. Head Coach Stephanie Carroll said she wasn’t sure if it was the high emotions of it being senior night that distracted the team. “We’ve kind of just been in kind of a slump,” she said of the Mariners. “We’re kind of hit that point in the season where they’re really fighting to bring their energy and their focus to practice, and it shows in games.” Carroll said things like service errors, lack of communication and hitting errors all tally up fast, and that the team will have to clean those up if they want a shot at making it to the

state tournament later this season. “I hope this was a wakeup call that our work we put in at the beginning of the season has to continue,” she said. Kenai Coach Tracie Beck said the Kardinals did a good job of keeping their heads down and not letting the high stakes of another team’s senior night get to them. “I think they just kept their heads stuck to the game plan, and it worked,” she said. The Mariners now move on to play Redington Jr./Sr. High School on Friday and Houston High School on Saturday. Reach Megan Pacer at

Kenai grad selected to US Biathlon team for World Cup season By Jeff Helminiak Peninsula Clarion

Travis Cooper, a 2015 graduate of Kenai Central, has been selected by U.S. Biathlon to compete in the first three International Biathlon Union World Cup events of this season. The World Cup season kicks off in

Oestersund, Sweden, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 8. Cooper will then compete in Hochfilzen, Austria, from Dec. 13 to 15, and Le Grand Bornand, France, from Dec. 19 to 22. Cooper earned the nod coming off a strong performance at the U.S. Biathlon Fall Festival and IBU Cup Trials held over the weekend in Soldier Hollow, Utah. The event

was held on roller skis. Cooper, part of National Guard Biathlon, started the event Thursday with a victory in the men’s 10-kilometer sprint with a time of 26 minutes, 13.45 seconds. Cooper shot clean in both the prone and standing stages. Lars Hammernes Leopold was second, also shooting clean, at 26:21.58.

Saturday, Cooper won again, this time taking the 13.5-kilometer mass start. Cooper won with a time of 34 minutes, 59.80 seconds, missing just one target, while Paul Schommer was second at 35:06.28 with three misses. Sunday, Cooper competed in a 10-kilometer sprint. Ironically, the sprints had to be delayed due to

snowfall, which made the tracks too slick for roller skis. Once the races started, Jake Brown took the victory with one miss in 27:45.27, while Cooper was sixth with one miss in 28:38.67. According to biathlonresults. com, Cooper made 10 starts on the World Cup circuit last season. His best individual finish was 56th.

Nationals beat Astros, force World Series game 7 By Ronald Blum AP BaseballWriter

HOUSTON (AP) — It’s been an unconventional road to Game 7 of the World Series for Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals. Seizing the October spotlight he missed out on as a youngster, Strasburg pitched a gem into the ninth inning Tuesday night as the Nationals beat the Houston Astros 7-2 to tie this Fall Classic at 3-3. Juan Soto ran all the way to first base with his bat following a go-ahead home run, the same way Houston slugger Alex Bregman did earlier. Yep, these Nationals have matched the Astros pitch for pitch, hit for hit — even home run celebration for home run celebration. Now, it’s onto a winner-take-all Game 7 on Wednesday night to decide the only Series in which the visiting team won the first six. “It’s weird, really. You can’t explain it,” Washington manager Dave Martinez said. Adam Eaton and Soto hit solo homers off Justin Verlander in the fifth to help the Nationals rally. Anthony Rendon also went deep and drove in five runs. Max Scherzer, revitalized by an injection of painkiller, is primed to return from an irritated nerve in his neck to start Game 7 for Washington

in a Series that has been all road, sweet, road. “Maybe they enjoy our park and maybe we enjoy their park. We’re not going to ask questions. We’re just going to try to go out there and just have some fun,” Rendon said. “Anytime we get Max on the mound for us, we like our chances.” Zack Greinke will start for the Astros, who led the majors with 107 wins and are seeking their second title in three seasons. “I wish it was in a National League park,” Greinke joked, cracking a smile. Scherzer was warming up in the seventh before Rendon’s homer, then sat down as Martinez became the first manager tossed from a Series game since Atlanta’s Bobby Cox in 1996. “When I couldn’t even move my right arm the other day, and I was in severe pain, I just believed in next guy up,” Scherzer said. “Everybody has the belief in me and the doctors that I could get right and be ready for Game 7.” Fired up after a disputed call at first base went against them in the seventh, the Nationals padded their lead moments later when Rendon homered off Will Harris. Martinez, still enraged at umpires, was ejected during the seventh-inning stretch, screaming as a pair of his coaches held him back while the crowd

Davis scores 40 to lead Lakers over Grizzlies LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anthony Davis scored 40 points — including a franchise record 26 made free throws — and had 20 rebounds to help the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Memphis Grizzlies 120-91 on Tuesday night. It’s the fourth 40-20 game of Davis’ career and his first since 2016. The last Lakers player to accomplish it was Shaquille O’Neal in 2003. Not a bad night for someone whose status was questionable two hours before the game due to a right shoulder injury suffered in Sunday’s win over Charlotte. Lakers coach Frank Vogel said 90 minutes before tipoff that he wasn’t sure of Davis’ status. But the seventh-year forward did some shooting drills and was in the starting lineup.

HEAT 112, HAWKS 97 MIAMI (AP) — Jimmy Butler made his first four

shots and scored 21 in his Miami debut, rookie Tyler Herro scored 29 and the Heat defeated Atlanta in a game where Hawks star Trae Young left early in the second quarter with a sprained right ankle. The 19-year-old Herro had a 19-point second quarter for Miami, while fellow reserve Goran Dragic scored 21. Bam Adebayo had 17 points and 10 rebounds for Miami and Kendrick Nunn finished with 17.

MAVERICKS 106, NUGGETS 106 DENVER (AP) — Maxi Kleber had 14 points, seven rebounds and a key block late to help the Mavericks beat the Nuggets. Nine Mavericks players scored in double figures on a night their two top scorers were held in check. Luca Doncic scored 12 points and Kristaps Porzingis had 10 points and 14 rebounds.

sang along to “Deep in the Heart of Texas.” Rendon added a two-run double off Chris Devenski in the ninth to just about seal it after Strasburg gutted through without his best fastball to throw five-hit ball for 8 1/3 innings. Washington pitching coach Paul Menhart told Strasburg after the first inning that he was tipping pitches. Strasburg allowed only three more hits. “Started shaking my glove, so they didn’t know what I was throwing,” he said. “It’s something that has burned me in the past, and it burned me there in the first.” Now the Nationals will attempt their ultimate comeback in a year in which they were written off time after time, hoping for the first title in the 51-season history of a franchise that started as the Montreal Expos and the first for Washington since the Senators in 1924. Visiting teams have won three straight Game 7s in the Series since the Cardinals defeated Texas at home in 2011. “I don’t think there’s a person in the building that would have assumed that all road teams were going to win,” Houston manager AJ Hinch said. “We’ve just got to make sure that last one is not the same.” Washington rebounded from a 19-31 start — the Nats were given just a 1.6% chance to win the Series

on May 23 — to finish 93-69. They rebounded from a 3-1 eighth-inning deficit against Milwaukee in the NL wild-card game, a two-gamesto-one deficit vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Division Series and a 2-1, fifth-inning deficit in Game 6 vs. the Astros. Outscored 19-3 at Nationals Park while going 1 for 21 with runners in scoring position, the Nationals got the strong outing they needed from Strasburg, who allowed his only runs in the first inning, struck out seven and walked two while throwing 104 pitches. “It was a mental grind out there, especially after the first,” Strasburg said. “Just got to keep fighting.” Strasburg was memorably shut down by the Nationals in September 2012 to protect his arm in his first full season following Tommy John surgery, and Washington was beaten by St. Louis in the Division Series. He improved to 5-0 with a 1.98 ERA in six postseason starts this October despite failing to get a swing and miss in the first two innings for the first time this year. Eight of nine swings and misses overall were on breaking balls. Strasburg escaped a two-on, twoout jam in the fourth by striking out Carlos Correa. After George Springer’s one-out double put runners at second and

third in the fifth, José Altuve struck out on curve in the dirt and Michael Brantley hit a hard grounder to second. “Stras is doing Stras things out there,” Rendon said. “It’s been amazing.” Sean Doolittle got the final two outs as the Nationals bullpen headed into Game 7 relatively rested. He gave up a two-out double to Correa before retiring Robinson Chirinos on a popup. Verlander dropped to 0-6 with a 5.68 ERA in seven Series starts, a blemish on his otherwise sterling career. “I didn’t really have great feel for the off-speed stuff,” Verlander said. “The last inning just a poorly executed slider and then really just kind of a fastball up and in.” Martinez’s ejection came after Trea Turner was called out for interference when he ran on the fair side of the foul line and knocked the glove off first base Yuli Gurriel in the seventh following his slow roller. Washington was leading 3-2 at the time and would have had runners on second and third with no outs. Joe Torre, MLB’s chief baseball officer, said the long delay that followed was caused by umpires at Minute Maid Park consulting with the replay room in New York to confirm the decision on the field was not subject to review.

State to submit Fairbanks clean air plan by mid-December By Dan Joling Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — The state agency responsible for maintaining safe air for Alaskans has agreed to submit a cleanup plan for Fairbanks to federal regulators by mid-December. The state Department of Environmental Conservation will submit a cleanup plan to the federal Environmental Protection Agency by Dec. 15 as part of a lawsuit brought by clean air advocates. Fine particulate, a pollutant that can cause heart and lung problems, especially among the young and the elderly, has spiked out of compliance during winter months in the

an impeachable offense. Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to denounce the probe as a “sham,” adding: “Why are people that I never even heard of testifying about the call. Just READ THE CALL TRANSCRIPT AND THE IMPEACHMENT HOAX IS OVER!” Vindman, who arrived in the United States as a 3-year-old from the former Soviet Union, wrote that it was his “sacred duty” to defend the United States. Some Trump allies, looking for ways to discredit Vindman, questioned the colonel’s loyalties because he was born in the region. But the line of attack was rejected by some Republicans, including Rep. Liz Cheney, who said it was “shameful” to criticize his patriotism. His appearance came a day after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House will vote on a resolution to affirm the impeachment investigation, set rules for public hearings and outline the potential process for writing articles of impeachment against Trump. The vote is expected Thursday. Vindman said that in spring of this year he became aware of “outside influencers” promoting what he called a “false narrative of Ukraine” that undermined

Fairbanks North Star Borough for more than a decade. Advocates for clean air have sued four times seeking compliance. The EPA in a second agreement overseen by U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Zilly of Seattle said it would decide by Jan. 15 whether the state plan contained all necessary parts. If it does, the EPA will have a year to decide whether the plan will bring Fairbanks into compliance with federal clean air law. A spokeswoman for one of the groups that sued, Citizens for Clean Air, expressed hope that the court-enforced deadlines would accelerate a remedy for serious air pollution. “The longer it takes to clean

U.S. efforts. Ukraine, in trying to become a vibrant democracy integrated with the West, is a bulwark against overt Russian aggression, he said in his opening statement. Other officials have testified that Ukraine policy was increasingly being handled by the president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and others in the administration outside regular policy-making channels. One diplomat testified it was “highly irregular.” Vindman testified that he first reported his concerns after an earlier meeting July 10 in which U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland stressed the importance of having Ukraine investigate the 2016 election as well as Burisma, a company linked to the family of Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. Vindman says he told Sondland that “his statements were inappropriate, that the request to investigate Biden and his son had nothing to do with national security, and that such investigations were not something the NSC was going to get involved in or push.” That differs from the account of Sondland, a wealthy businessman who donated $1 million to Trump inauguration and testified before the impeachment investigators that no one from the NSC “ever expressed any concerns.” He also

up our air, the more citizens will continue to be the collateral damage,” Patrice Lee said in a prepared statement. Residents remain vulnerable to health problems and premature death, especially senior citizens on fixed incomes, special needs children, adults with chronic illness, pregnant women and children, Lee said. Fine particulate is a mix of solid particles and liquid droplets that can be inhaled deep in the lungs. Particulate can cause premature death in people with heart and lung diseases. Much of the air pollution problem in Fairbanks is blamed on the incomplete burning of wood in

woodstoves. Wood is an alternative heat source to expensive heating oil in the region where winter temperatures routinely fall to -50 Fahrenheit. Fairbanks’ geography contributes to the particulate problem. Hills surrounding Fairbanks create a bowl effect. Particulate can be trapped by inversions, layers of warmer air that cap cold, dirty air and keep it from dissipating. Limits on woodstoves have not been popular. Fairbanks voters in October 2018 approved a measure prohibiting local officials from regulating how people heat their homes. Attorney Jeremy Lieb of Earthjustice, the environmental law firm

that represented the clean-air advocates, said his clients were not satisfied with a draft state plan released in the summer that had the goal of reducing pollution 5% annually and full compliance with federal law in 10 years, or by Dec. 31, 2029. “That doesn’t meet what’s required for a serious area plan,” Lieb said. The groups want to see full compliance within five years, he said. If the EPA in December 2020 rejects the state plan, the agency would give Alaska authorities a deadline to revise inadequacies within 18 months or face sanctions and a federal cleanup plan.

“Why are people that I never even heard of testifying about the call. Just READ THE CALL TRANSCRIPT AND THE IMPEACHMENT HOAX IS OVER!” President Donald Trump, on Twitter

testified that he did not realize any connection between Biden and Burisma. Sondland was dubbed one of “the three amigos,” along with Energy Secretary Rick Perry and special envoy Kurt Volker, working on Ukraine outside normal channels. For the call between Trump and Zelenskiy, Vindman said he listened in the Situation Room with colleagues from the NSC and Vice President Mike Pence’s office and was concerned. He said he again reported his concerns to the NSC’s lead counsel. He wrote, “I realized that if Ukraine pursued an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma, it would likely be interpreted as a partisan play which would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained. This would all undermine U.S. national security.” Vindman served in various military and diplomatic posts before joining the NSC. He was the director for European affairs and a Ukraine expert under Fiona Hill, a former official who testified earlier in the impeachment probe. Hill worked for former national

security adviser John Bolton. Vindman attended Zelenskiy’s inauguration with a delegation led by Energy Secretary Perry, and he and Hill were both part of a Ukraine briefing with Sondland that others have testified irritated Bolton at the White House. He said he is not the whistleblower, the still unnamed government official who filed the initial complaint over Trump’s conversation with the Ukraine president that sparked the House impeachment inquiry. He said he does not know who the whistleblower is. “I am a patriot, and it is my sacred duty and honor to advance and defend OUR country, irrespective of party or politics,” wrote Vindman, who was wounded in Iraq and awarded a Purple Heart. “For over twenty years as an active duty United States military officer and diplomat, I have served this country in a nonpartisan manner, and have done so with the utmost respect and professionalism for both Republican and Democratic administrations,” he wrote. Thursday’s expected formal

House vote would be the first on the impeachment inquiry and aims to nullify complaints from Trump and his allies that the process is illegitimate and unfair. Democrats insist they aren’t yielding to Republican pressure. Pelosi dismissed the Republican argument that impeachment can’t begin without formal approval from the House and brushed off their complaints about the closeddoor process. “I do not care. I do not care. This is a false thing with them,” Pelosi said. “Understand, it has nothing to do with them. It has to do with how we proceed.” Pelosi’s announcement Monday came just hours after a former White House national security official defied a House subpoena for closed-door testimony, escalating the standoff between Congress and the White House over who will testify. Charles Kupperman, who was a deputy to Bolton, failed to show up for the scheduled deposition after filing a lawsuit asking a federal court in Washington to rule on whether he was legally required to appear.
