Recall group challenges application denial JUNEAU — A group seeking to recall Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy filed a legal complaint Tuesday, alleging a state elections director erred in not allowing the recall effort to proceed. Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai said Monday she relied on legal advice from Attorney General Kevin Clarkson, a Dunleavy appointee, who found the statement of grounds for recall to be “factually and legally deficient.” Clarkson’s opinion concluded the allegations failed to meet the listed grounds for recall, which were neglect of duty, incompetence or lack of fitness. Among its claims, the Recall Dunleavy group said the Republican governor violated the law by not appointing a judge See news, Page A2

An Anchorage judge granted a preliminary injunction against the state Tuesday in a case over Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s Sept. 26 Administrative Order seeking to change the way union dues are collected. Judge Gregory Miller issued the injunction in favor of the Alaska State Employees Association, which was sued by the state shortly after the order was announced. When the state informed ASEA

it would no longer automatically deduct dues from members’ paychecks, the union threatened legal action but the state filed suit first on Sept. 16. The Administrative Order followed an opinion written by Attorney General Kevin Clarkson concerning Alaska’s compliance with the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2018 decision in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Council 31. The Janus decision said nonunion public employees no longer

have to pay dues or agency fees to the unions that represent them. Clarkson’s August opinion said the state’s existing method of having those employees opt-out of union dues was a violation of free speech, and that the state would be creating an opt-in system for public employees. The opinion went a step further and said the opt-in process would apply to active union members as well as non-union public sector employees. On Oct. 4, Judge Miller granted ASEA a temporary

restraining order (TRO) saying Clarkson’s opinion had misinterpreted the Janus decision. Miller wrote that other states or counties had examined whether Janus was applicable to unions and their members and each case had found that it was not. “Every one of those decisions expressly rejected the idea that Janus goes farther than addressing agency fee arrangements,” Miller wrote. On Oct. 7, the state filed its opSee dues, Page A3

Diplomat now acknowledges quid pro quo By Lisa Mascaro, Eric Tucker and Mary Clare Jalonick Associated Press

WASHINGTON — “I now do recall.” With that stunning reversal, diplomat Gordon Sondland handed House impeachment investigators another key piece of corroborating testimony Tuesday. He acknowledged what Democrats contend was a clear quid pro quo, pushed by President Donald Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, with Ukraine. Sondland, in an addendum to his sworn earlier testimony, said that military assistance to the East European ally was being withheld until Ukraine’s new president agreed to release a statement about fighting corruption as Trump wanted. Sondland knows that proposed arrangement to be a fact, he said, because he was the one who carried the message to a Ukrainian official on the sidelines of a conference in Warsaw with Vice President Mike Pence. “I said that resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks,” Sondland recalled. His three-page update, tucked beneath hundreds of pages of sworn testimony from Sondland and former Ukraine Special Envoy Kurt Volker, was released by House investigators as Democrats prepared to push the closed-door sessions to public hearings as soon as next week. Trump has denied any quid pro

quo, but Democrats say there is a singular narrative developing since the president’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy when he first asked for “a favor.” That request, which sparked the impeachment inquiry, included a public investigation into Ukrainian activities by

Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden and his son and Trump’s allegations of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, said the House panels conducting the inquiry are releasing the

word-by-word transcripts of the past weeks’ closed-door hearings so the American public can decide for themselves. “This is about more than just one call,” Schiff wrote Tuesday in an See diplomat, Page A13

Elementary students could move to Soldotna Prep By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

The borough and school district are considering moving Soldotna Elementary School and Soldotna Montessori school students to the vacant Soldotna Prep School building. The borough and district are in early conversations about the potential move, Superintendent John O’Brien said at Monday’s Kenai Peninsula

Borough School District Board of Education meeting. “It’s extremely early in this process and no decisions have been made,” O’Brien said. A memo from O’Brien included in Monday’s school board agenda says Mayor Charlie Pierce and Borough Land Management Officer Marcus Mueller approached the district with the idea to relocate Soldotna Elementary and Soldotna Montessori, who

share a campus, to the Soldotna Prep building. The move could save the borough money, but the Soldotna Elementary School facility “will require significant capital expenditures to extend its useful life,” the memo said. Soldotna Prep building is also bigger than the Soldotna Elementary and Soldotna Montessori building, is in better physical condition and has a longer expected useful life.

The borough is also interested in the land where the two elementary schools are now, and think it could be an idea location for “a new state-ofthe-art Central Emergency Services fire station and headquarters,” the memo said. “The Borough is very interested in the land location where the current Soldotna Elementary and Soldotna See move, Page A2

‘Pretty lucky:’ Man survives bear attack near Homer By Michael Armstrong Homer News

A local man is recovering after surviving a bear attack Monday afternoon that happened when he was out walking his dogs on trails below Diamond Ridge Road. A member of the U.S. Coast Guard, the man in his mid-20s suffered a laceration to his scalp and had other non-life threatening injuries, said Homer Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mark Kirko. Kirko is one of the medics who responded to the call. “He was alert and oriented the whole time we were there,” Kirko said on Tuesday. “He seemed to be in good

spirits. I would say he got pretty lucky.” A homeowner off Nearly Level Road about a mile down from Diamond Ridge Road near Rucksack Road made a 911 call at about 3:50 p.m. Nov. 4, saying that a man had been attacked by a bear. The man hiked on a system of trails in the Diamond Creek drainage south of Diamond Ridge Road and north of Rogers Loop Road. Kachemak Emergency Services crew members were sent out first because the attack happened in their response area. Because HVFD could get there sooner, the Homer department provided mutual aid and went to the scene. Kirko had been nearby

and responded directly, as did several KES volunteers. Kirko said the homeowner drove the victim up to the Homestead Trail parking lot at the corner of Nearly Level Road and Diamond Ridge Road and medics met them there. The Homestead Trail in that area connects to the trail network. The HVFD ambulance and crew, including a KES medic, took the man to South Peninsula Hospital. The dogs ran off, but were later recovered safely. The man had been hiking further down below Nearly Level Road and Monroe Street when he and his dogs encountered a sow with multiple

cubs, according to KES Chief Bob Cicciarella. “I don’t know if the dogs played a role in it or not, but the bear did attack him, probably to protect the cubs,” Cicciarella said. He said the victim ran up the hill and found the resident who called 911 at a house near Monroe Street and Nearly Level Road. “The bear spared him,” Cicciarella said. “The bear could have done a lot more if it wanted to.” Alaska State Troopers also responded. Sgt. Daniel Cox of the Anchor Point trooper post said in the See attack, Page A2

within a required timeframe, misused state funds for partisan online ads and mailers, and improperly used his veto authority to “attack the judiciary.” Scott Kendall, a lawyer for the recall group, called the rejection expected. The decision is being appealed on behalf of those “who signed on to exercise their constitutional right to remove Gov. Dunleavy from office,” Kendall said Tuesday. More than 46,000 of the roughly 49,000 signatures the group said it turned in were verified as qualified. The group needed 28,501 as part of its application. If the recall were to go forward, there would be a second round of signature gathering, in which more than 71,000 signatures would be needed.

be conducted, the results of which will be shared with the school board. In addition, significant remodeling and renovations to create an age-appropriate instructional setting at Soldotna Prep would likely be needed. Remodeling responsibility would probably fall on the borough, the memo said. The earliest the project could be implemented would be in the fall of the 20212022 school year.

“I will keep the board updated as more information becomes available,” O’Brien’s memo said. “I will also be working with the building principals in all three schools to ensure that staff, parents, students, and school communities are involved and engaged in this discussion.” If the feasibility study shows the project makes financial sense, the borough and district would engage in community discussions.

the Sterling Highway. Most homes in the area are on 1-acre or larger lots fronting the road, with some smaller subdivisions along the road. The south side includes the popular Kachemak Nordic Ski Club trails. Vegetation consists of areas of spruce, cottonwood and birch forests, with meadows of grass, fireweed and shrubs. The ski club has been mowing ski trails this fall in preparation for the ski season, but the area can be thick with high grass.

“The takeaway from this is understanding your surroundings and being aware this (a bear encounter) is a possibility when you’re out on the trails and such in the area,” Kirko said. Kirko said the man was in good spirits while being treated,. “He was actually chuckling a bit,” Kirko said. “It could have been a lot worse.” Reach Michael Armstrong at

Pesticides are then checked against the environmental conservation department’s pesticide criteria, she said. Ron Bass of Calm N Collective said in a statement that a disgruntled employee he was in the process of firing was responsible for the alleged illegal pesticide use. “The employee in question had been accused of stealing and was aware that steps were being made towards firing him,” Bass wrote. “At some point after this, he posted a picture of himself holding a bottle of unapproved pesticides in the grow room as if he was about to apply them.” The Alaska marijuana control office has sent the product out of state for testing that could take up to 60 days, Bass said.

State blocks pot suspected of containing pesticides ANCHORAGE — A MatanuskaSusitna Borough marijuana grower is under investigation for possible distribution of products cultivated with pesticides, officials said. The state Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office sent an advisory to Alaska marijuana retail stores Nov. 1 ordering the removal and quarantine of all packages originating from Calm N Collective, news organizations reported. The state Department of Environmental Conservation is also investigating the Houston-based company’s alleged use of Eagle 20, a pesticide containing myclobutanil. The chemical is stable at room temperatures but releases the toxic gas hydrogen cyanide when combusted, according to the state notice to retailers. Testing for pesticides is not currently a requirement in the state Marijuana Control Board’s regulations, said Erika McConnell, Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office director. McConnell does not believe any licensed testing facilities have the capacity to test for pesticides, she said in an email. Cultivators must list “fertilizers, chemicals, gases, and deliver(y) systems, including carbon dioxide, management, to be used,” in their application.

Man dies of injuries in suspected assault QUINHAGAK — Alaska State Troopers say a man who was assaulted in a southwest Alaska village has died of his injuries. Troopers say 53-year-old Jesse Britton of Quinhagak died Friday at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage. Another Quinhagak man, 28-yearold Frank Nelson, is charged with five counts of felony assault in the case. He is represented by the public defender’s office in Bethel, which did not respond to an email request for comment Tuesday. Troopers on Oct. 3 received word of an assault and arrested Nelson. Britton was flown to Bethel and then medically evacuated to Anchorage. — Associated Press

position to the injunction, according to Miller’s injunction, but did not file any new briefings on the matter. “Instead (the state) just attached and relied upon a copy of its Oct 1 TRO briefing,” the injunction said. “Given the State’s lack of any new arguments, today this court issued a short order that granted the preliminary for the same rea-

sons this court granted the TRO.” In an email to the Empire, State Ethics Attorney Maria Bahr said the Department of Law is still in the process of reviewing the order. “It was an overwhelming victory for us,” said ASEA Executive Director Jake Metcalfe in a phone interview with the Empire Tuesday. “The status quo stays in place, and the state has to prove the allegations that they made in the lawsuit.” Metcalfe said the state made a number of accu-

sations in its lawsuit with no basis, and the injunction will allow for an orderly process made with a complete record before the court. “Alaskans are concerned because of the economy and they want to work goodpaying jobs, they want state services our employees provide,” Metcalfe said.

ministration intended to set up a mechanism to facilitate the opt-in/opt-out program but because the matter got tied up in court, no such mechanism was created. Metcalfe was unsure when the case would be heard in court but said there were some technical matters such as depositions and evidentiary hearings that would need to take place first. Metcalfe has previously accused Dunleavy of attacking unions and stifling workers rights. “He’s more interested in

suing his own employees for an ideological outcome, and the decision today shows that’s frivolous,” Metcalfe said Tuesday. Dunleavy spokesperson Jeff Turner said the governor’s office couldn’t comment on ongoing court cases. “This is what happens when people stick together,” Metcalfe said. “Not only members of ASEA but other public unions in Alaska. They’re not going to allow someone to come in and violate a contract that both sides agreed to.”

Athletes generate money, let’s allow them a piece of the pie


et’s imagine a Southern Illinois University football player makes a leaping interception against Missouri State next week. Let’s imagine one of SIU’s staff photographer captures the photograph, which features the leaping defensive back framed perfectly by the goalposts. It’s a photograph that screams for the player to be immortalized on a poster. For the sake of argument, let’s imagine SIU decides to print a thousand photos and sell them for $10 apiece — that’s a cool ten grand. Until this week, the player would get absolutely nothing, zip, nada, not a penny. If you’re thinking that doesn’t seem fair, you’re right. However, this week the NCAA Board of Directors passed a resolution permitting students to benefit from the use of “their name, image and likeness.” It’s a long overdue move in the world of big-time college athletics. It remains to be seen what effect the rule will have on mid-majors like SIU, but at least athletes will have the opportunity to make a few extra dollars for their toils. The naysayers, and there are plenty, will argue that athletes are getting paid via their scholarships. And, there is an element of truth to that — athletes who receive a “full-ride” scholarship are getting good value for their labors on field, floor or court. And, this shouldn’t provide hardship on universities to come up with additional payroll money — we’re talking about funds generated by the sale of an athlete’s name, image or likeness. But, there is another side to this picture. Unlike football and basketball players, athletes playing baseball, volleyball, or those who swim or run track, aren’t getting full scholarships. And, under NCAA regulations, most cannot hold jobs and get paid for anything regarding their sports. If these athletes don’t come from wealthy families, they are likely walking around campus virtually penniless. There isn’t spare change for a lunch with friends, no money for date night or no Saturday night pizza with friends. This regulation seems to unfairly target athletes. Imagine being a music student on campus. Imagine you are a talented guitar player. There is nothing to stop you from joining a band and making some cash. Perhaps you are an art student whose work appears in galleries on campus. There is nothing to stop you from accepting commissions to paint portraits — even if you have a scholarship in your field. What’s worse, if you are an athlete at a Power 5 conference, your university is likely cashing in on your athletic abilities in a big way. The next time you walk down a busy sidewalk take note of the apparel being worn — there’s a good chance you’ll see a Kentucky sweat shirt, a Notre Dame cap or a North Carolina T-shirt. And, let’s not forget that Michigan, among others, sells 100,000 tickets for football games. That basketball tickets at some basketball powerhouses are sometimes passed down from generation to generation. The amount of money generated by college athletics is astronomical. No matter how you look at it, the money is generated by the players. Take the student athletes out of the picture and you’re left with a cavernous empty stadium. It only makes sense that students be given some cut of the action. It is up to the schools to figure out how to make it work. The momentum that pushed this change into reality came from a recent law in California that allowed students-athletes in that state to cash in. Coincidentally, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced his support for the measure just hours before the NCAA adopted the new rule. To use the obvious pun, this shouldn’t be a political football. It’s only fair for athletes to share in the money they are largely responsible for generating. It’s as American as apple pie. — The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan, Nov. 3

Voices of the peninsula | Clark Fair

Remembering a man who challenged and inspired us N

early 43 years ago, I was 18 years old, probably a bit too big for my britches, and almost devoid of any sense of personal direction. With no winter job to make me a productive member of society, and practically no idea what to do with the rest of my life, I found myself, in January 1977, taking classes at Kenai Peninsula Community College, where I met Alan Boraas, who was then in only his fourth year as a full-time instructor and who would challenge me intellectually and inspire me personally for the next four decades. I had no idea then how often our paths would cross, but I have been blessed by all those aggregate moments. The college class — the first of several I would take with Alan over the years — was Introduction to Geology. My clearest memory from that semester was a weekend field trip up the highway and into the mountains, where we students regularly disembarked from our

vehicles to hear Alan use the topography to illustrate the story written by time and geology on our landscape. The experience was eyeopening. I had lived my entire life on the Kenai Peninsula without truly seeing what was right in front of me. Alan had a knack of doing this — challenging me to look deeper, getting me to see beyond my own perspective. Alan was persistent, and his message was consistent. In the 1980s, when I was in charge of the Clarion’s feature magazine called “The Tides,” Alan became a regular contributor. I became his editor. His treatments on anthropology, history and Native culture needed little editing, but I mention this because I became a regular reader of Alan’s ideas. When he became a columnist for the Anchorage Daily News and other publications, I continued to read him, awash in his ideas and, when he chose to be political, in his challenges to his readers.

Our paths crossed often — on Tsalteshi Trails, in the KPC anthropology lab, in the classroom, at Kaladi Brothers. We talked history, culture, education, outdoor recreation, morality, even politics. From Alan, there was always something new to learn. I’m going to miss that — the encyclopedic memory, the wealth of experience and insight, even the challenges. And I’m going to miss his understated humor — and that sidelong glance of his as he checked to see whether I got the joke. Alan was fiercely proud of his children, justifiably proud of his accomplishments, and so in love with the northcountry, with the glide of his skis over snow, and with the inherent beauty of life. I can almost hear him now telling me to keep my eyes and my ears open, to have compassion for those who deserve it, and to fight the good fight against those who do not. I’ll try, Alan. Not all of us are as brave as you.

Democrats win full control of Virginia statehouse By Alan Suderman Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia Democrats continued their winning streak under President Trump on Tuesday and took full control of the statehouse for the first time in more than two decades. Suburban voters turned out in big numbers to back Democratic candidates, continuing a trend of once GOP-friendly suburbs turning blue. This is the third election in a row in which Democrats made significant gains since Trump was elected. “I’m here to officially declare today, November 5, 2019, that Virginia is officially blue,” Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam told a crowd of supporters in Richmond. Of the four states with legislative elections this year, Virginia is the only one where control of the statehouse was up for grabs. Republicans had slim majorities in both the state House and Senate. National groups, particularly those aligned with Democrats, pumped huge amounts of money into the contests as a way to test-drive expensive messaging and get-outthe-vote campaigns ahead of the 2020 cycle. Gun control and clean energy groups affiliated with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg spent several million dollars helping Democrats. Virginia also drew several highprofile visits from 2020 presidential hopefuls, including former Vice President Joe Biden, as well as current Vice President Mike Pence. President Donald Trump tried to rally Republicans via Twitter but stayed out of Virginia, a state he lost in 2016. His election three years ago

Kentucky governor’s race too close to call LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The hotly contested governor’s race in Kentucky was too close to call Tuesday night, with Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear holding a narrow lead - and declaring victory - over Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Beshear had a lead of 4,658 votes out of more than 1.4 million counted, or a margin of 0.3 percentage points. The bitter rivals gave competing speeches in which Beshear claimed victory while Bevin refused to concede. “My expectation is that he (Bevin) will honor the election that was held tonight,” Beshear said. “That he will help us make this transition. And I’ll tell you what, we will be ready for that first day in office, and I look forward to it.” Bevin called it a “close, close race” and said he wasn’t conceding “by any stretch.” “We want the process to be followed, and there is a process,” he said. — Associated Press

has been disastrous for Virginia Republicans, particularly in growing suburban areas. Democrats have won every statewide contest, picked up three additional congressional seats and now are set to control both the state house and the Executive Mansion for the first time since 1994. Republicans were hoping an off-year election with no statewide candidates on the ballot would help defuse the anti-Trump energy that powered previous cycles. GOP lawmakers also were hopeful that the specter of a possible Trump impeachment would anger and motivate the Republican base. Democrats have pledged that when they take power, they will pass an agenda that Republicans have blocked for years, including stricter gun laws, a higher minimum wage and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, making Virginia the final state needed for possible passage of the gender equality measure.

Democrats were keenly focused on gun issues during the election, saying Republicans should be held accountable for failing to pass new restrictions after a mass shooting in Virginia Beach earlier this year. Republicans accused Democrats of trying to use the tragedy for political gain while focusing heavily on past Democratic efforts to loosen restrictions for third-trimester abortion. The GOP also warned of higher taxes and energy prices if they lose the majority. Tuesday’s election could help cement Democratic rule for the next decade, because the winners will decide who controls the next redistricting process. Lawmakers approved a proposed constitutional amendment this year that would create a new bipartisan commission empowered to draw legislative and congressional maps, but Democrats would have to sign off on it again next year before it could be presented to voters.

White House, Pelosi part ways on relief for drug prices By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The White House on Tuesday signaled President Donald Trump’s blunt thumbsdown to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices. Her office’s sharp retort: “Working people won’t like it if he sells them out.” Despite the House impeachment inquiry, the White House and top aides to the California Democrat have been in regular contact on efforts to curb drug prices, a mutual objective and a top concern for Americans across party lines. But a senior White House official told The Associated Press that the administration has concluded Pelosi’s plan is “unworkable” and Trump will instead support bipartisan

legislation pending in the Senate. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing deliberations. The falling out imperils chances for legislation this year, already seen as a long shot. A recent study found more than half of seriously ill Medicare enrollees face financial hardships with medical bills, and prescription drug costs are the leading problem. In a statement responding to the White House, Pelosi spokesman Henry Connelly said, “House Democrats are taking the bold action to negotiate lower drug prices that President Trump always claimed was necessary, and working people won’t like it if he sells them out on one of the most important kitchen table issues in America right now.” The senior White House official

said that while Trump is not ideologically opposed to Medicare negotiating prices for medicines, Pelosi’s approach can’t be quickly retooled. Her bill would levy steep taxes on drugmakers who refuse to accept a Medicare price keyed to what’s paid in other economically advanced countries. The White House official objected that Pelosi’s bill is essentially structured to give Medicare the power to dictate prices, and pointed to its lack of Republican support. Trump is backing a bipartisan bill from Sens. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ron Wyden, D-Ore. That legislation would for the first time limit what seniors have to pay out of their own pockets for medications. It would also require drug companies to pay rebates to Medicare if they hike prices beyond the inflation rate.

Similar ideas are also in Pelosi’s legislation, but she takes a more aggressive approach to inflation rebates and sets a lower out-ofpocket limit for Medicare recipients. Under the legislation that created Medicare’s prescription drug program, price negotiations are handled privately by insurers and their pharmacy benefit managers. The Grassley-Wyden bill does not grant Medicare negotiating power. Pelosi’s bill has cleared key committees and is headed for the House floor, where it’s expected to pass on a party-line vote. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has estimated it would save Medicare $345 billion over seven years, and Democrats want to use some of that to expand benefits. Aides to the House speaker say that her bill would give Trump

precisely what he had asked for as a presidential candidate, when he broke with other Republicans to back negotiating authority for Medicare. House Democrats even echo Trump’s longstanding complaint that other countries where medications cost less are taking advantage of the U.S. The White House says the administration is working with Grassley and Wyden on improving their bill, by adding special provisions to address the escalating cost of insulin, which is used to treat diabetes, and by exploring a monthly limit on out-of-pocket costs for Medicare recipients. It’s unclear if and when that bill would go to the Senate floor. The Congressional Budget Office estimates it would save Medicare $85 billion over 10 years.

Health officials link childhood trauma to adult illness By Mime Stobbe Associated Press

NEW YORK — U.S. health officials estimate that millions of cases of heart disease and other illnesses are linked to abuse and other physical and psychological harm suffered early in life. In a report released Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tried to estimate the impact of harmful childhood experiences on health in adulthood. Health officials acknowledged the study does not prove that these experiences directly cause certain illnesses. And they were not able to rule out other possible factors, such as the stress caused by financial

family problems. But the link is strong, and is bolstered by many other studies, said Jim Mercy, who oversees the CDC’s violence prevention programs. “There’s a lot of evidence connecting these things,” and it’s become clear that the more harmful incidents a child suffers, the more likely their health suffers later, he said. For at least two decades, researchers have been looking at how suffering or witnessing traumatic events as a child affects the likelihood of physical injury or illness later in life. Researchers say such stressful experiences can affect how the body develops, and can also put a child on a path to smoking, drug use, and other unhealthy behaviors.

The topic has been getting more attention in recent years from public health officials. California’s recentlyappointed surgeon general has made childhood trauma and what is known as toxic stress a priority. CDC has been involved in previous research on the topic, but Tuesday’s report is the agency’s first on the national impact of the problem. Researchers are increasingly focused on developing ways to reduce what is now a well-established link, said Dr. Dayna Long, a researcher at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. She called the CDC report “critical” because it adds important estimates about the potential impact preventive measures might have.

“Trauma really is a public health crisis that everybody needs to start addressing,” she said. The findings are based on questionnaires of about 144,000 adults in 25 states that were conducted in 2015, 2016 or 2017. The surveys asked people about health problems. They also were asked about childhood experiences with divorce, abuse, domestic violence, or drug abuse in the home, or a relative’s mental illness. The survey did not assess how severe the experiences were, and it’s not clear if some types of incidents are more harmful than others. But CDC officials are recommending programs to try to stop such incidents or lessen their impact. They

mentioned mentoring programs, parent education, and paid family leave. The CDC found: ■■ Adults who experienced the most potentially traumatic events were more likely to smoke and drink heavily. ■■ Women, blacks and American Indians and Alaskan Natives were more likely to experience four or more kinds of harm during childhood. ■■ Preventing such events could potentially reduce the number of adults with weight problems by 2%, the number of adults with coronary heart disease by 13%, and the number of adults with depression by 44%.

Kansas City to vote on removing King’s name from street By Margaret Stafford Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City residents will decide whether the city will remove the name of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from one of its most historic boulevards, less than a year after the street was renamed for the civil rights icon. Voters on Tuesday considered a ballot question that would reverse a city council decision in January to name a 10-mile boulevard on the city’s mostly black east side for King and restore the original name, The Paseo. The council’s decision to rename

the street for King came after years of advocacy from mostly black civic leaders and, at the time, meant Kansas City would shed its reputation as one of the largest U.S. cities without a street named for King. But a group of residents intent on keeping The Paseo name began collecting petitions to put the name change on the ballot and achieved that goal in April. The campaign has been divisive, with supporters of King’s name accusing opponents of being racist, while supporters of The Paseo name say city leaders pushed the name change through without following proper procedures and also ignored The Paseo’s historic value.

Emotions reached a peak Sunday, when members of the “Save the Paseo” group staged a silent protest at a get-out-the-vote rally at a black church for people wanting to keep the King name. They walked into the Paseo Baptist Church and stood along its two aisles. The protesters stood silently and did not react to several speakers that accused them of being disrespectful in a church but they also refused requests from preachers to sit down. The Save the Paseo group collected 2,857 signatures in April — far more than the 1,700 needed — to have the name change put to a public vote.

Many supporters of the Martin Luther King name have suggested the opponents are racist, saying Save the Paseo is a mostly white group and that many of its members don’t live on the street, which runs north to south through a largely black area of the city. They say removing the name would send a negative image of Kansas City to the rest of the world, and could hurt business and tourism. Supporters of the Paseo name reject the allegations of racism, saying they have respect for King and want the city to find a way to honor him. They are opposed to the name change because they say the City

Council did not follow city charter procedures when deciding making the change and didn’t notify most residents on the street about the proposal. They also say The Paseo is an historic name for the city’s first boulevard, which was completed in 1899. The north end of the boulevard is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The City Council voted in January to rename the boulevard for King, responding to a yearslong effort from the city’s black leaders and pressure from the local chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, a civil rights organization that King helped start.

Ambush in Mexico: Gunmen kill 9 U.S. citizens By Mark Stevenson Associated Press

MEXICO CITY — Drug cartel gunmen ambushed three SUVs along a dirt road, slaughtering six children and three women — all U.S. citizens living in northern Mexico — in a grisly attack that left one vehicle a burned-out, bullet-riddled hulk, authorities said Tuesday. The dead included 8-month-old twins. Eight youngsters were found alive after escaping from the vehicles and hiding in the brush, but at least five had gunshot wounds or other injuries and were taken to the U.S. for treatment, officials said. One woman was killed after she apparently jumped out of her vehicle and waved her hands to show she wasn’t a threat, according to family members and prosecutors. Mexican Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo said the gunmen may have mistaken the group’s large SUVs for those of rival gangs. The bloodshed took place

Monday in a remote, mountainous area in northern Mexico where the Sinaloa cartel has been engaged in a turf war. The victims had set out to visit relatives in Mexico; one woman was headed to the airport in Phoenix to meet her husband. While a drug-related violence has been raging for years in Mexico, the attack underscored the way cartel gunmen have become increasingly unconcerned about killing children as collateral damage. Around the ambush scene, which stretched for miles, investigators found over 200 shell casings, mostly from assault rifles. “Lately it’s getting worse. This is a whole new level,” said Taylor Langford, a relative of the dead who splits his time between the Mexican community and his home in the Salt Lake City suburb of Herriman, Utah. In a tweet, President Donald Trump offered to help Mexico “wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth.” But Mexican President Andrés

Manuel López Obrador rejected that approach, saying his predecessors waged war, “and it didn’t work.” The victims lived in Sonora state, about 70 miles south of Douglas, Arizona, in the hamlet of La Mora, which was founded decades ago by an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many La Mora residents call themselves Mormons but are not affiliated with the church. A number of such American farming communities are clustered around the Chihuahua-Sonora state border. Many members were born in Mexico and have dual citizenship. While some of the splinter groups were once polygamous, many no longer are. All of the victims were apparently related to the extended LeBaron family in Chihuahua, whose members have run afoul of the drug traffickers over the years. Benjamin LeBaron, an anti-crime activist who founded neighborhood patrols against cartels, was killed in 2009.

Prosecutors said the woman who waved her arms, Christina Langford Johnson, was found 15 yards away from her Suburban van, shot to death. Her 7-month-old daughter, Faith Marie Johnson, was discovered uninjured in her car seat. Kendra Miller, a relative, wrote that the baby’s car seat “seemed to be put on the floor by her mother to try and protect her. ... She gave her life to try and save the rest.” A short distance away, Dawna Ray Langford, 43, lay dead in the front seat of another Suburban, along with the bullet-riddled bodies of her sons, ages 11 and 2. Of the children who escaped, one had been shot in the face, another in the foot. One girl suffered gunshot wounds to her back and foot. Cowering in the brush, one boy hid the other children and then walked back to La Mora to get help. Another girl, who was initially listed as missing, walked off in another direction, despite her gunshot wounds, to get help.

A group of male relatives set out to try to rescue the youngsters but turned back when they heard gunfire ahead. A relative of the dead who did not want his name used for fear of retaliation said in an interview that when they finally made it to the scene where the ambush started — about 11 miles from where the two other mothers were killed — they found a burned-out Chevy Tahoe. Inside, they saw the charred remains of Rhonita Miller, 30, her 10-year-old daughter, a son, 12, and her 8-month-old twins. They were “burnt to a crisp,” the relative said. The gunmen had riddled the vehicle with dozens of bullets and apparently hit the gas tank, causing it to explode. “When we were there, the cartels from Sonora, there were probably 50 or 60 of them, armed to the teeth, about a mile on this side,” said the relative. Trump tweeted that a “wonderful family” got “caught between two vicious drug cartels.”

3 protesters killed in clashes as Iraq tries to reopen port By Qassim Abdul-Zahra Associated Press

BAGHDAD — At least three antigovernment protesters have been killed in clashes with security forces in southern Iraq, officials said Tuesday, as authorities tried to reopen the country’s main port, which had been blocked by demonstrators for three days. Security and medical officials said a protester was killed and eight more were wounded in Umm Qasr, a key oil terminal on the Persian Gulf. The Iraqi High Commission for Human Rights, a semi-official agency, said two people were killed and 23 wounded in clashes in the town of Shatrah, north of the southern city of Nasiriyah. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to reporters, said security forces in Umm Qasr fired live ammunition and tear gas, and that protesters seized an armored vehicle. Video showed dozens of protesters running on a road near the port with gunfire crackling in the distance.

“This is Iraqi blood on the ground!” one of the protesters screamed. “Iraqi blood is being spilled because of this rotten government.” Security forces in Iraq have killed at least 267 protesters in two major waves of anti-government demonstrations since Oct. 1 in Baghdad and across the mostly Shiite south. The protesters want an overhaul of the political system established after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, accusing the government and major parties of corruption and incompetence in dealing with the economy and unemployment. In southern Iraq, protesters have ransacked and torched the offices of political parties linked to Iran. After the clashes in Shatrah, protesters set fire to the homes of three local members of parliament, according to protesters and media reports. Other protesters said there were clashes between demonstrators and security forces on Tuesday night in the Shiite holy city of Karbala, where protesters attacked the Iranian Consulate earlier this week. The protesters spoke on condition

of anonymity because of security concerns. In Baghdad, protesters crossed a Tigris River bridge on Monday and clashed with security forces near the headquarters of state-run TV and the office of Prime Minister Adel AbdulMahdi. At least five protesters and a member of the security forces were killed, and scores were wounded. The protesters set tires and trash containers ablaze within 500 yards of the offices, sending huge clouds of black smoke into the sky. Netblocks, a group that monitors worldwide internet access, reported a major shutdown by Iraqi authorities overnight, with usage in Baghdad and southern Iraq dropping to 19% of normal. It said the internet was partially restored early Tuesday, but that “some networks are still offline and social media and messaging apps remain blocked or degraded.” Authorities shut down internet access and blocked social media sites several times during the protests in October, but Netblocks said the latest shutdown was the most severe yet.

Protesters stage a sit-in under a bridge Tuesday that leads to the Green Zone where many government offices and embassies are located during ongoing anti-government protests in Baghdad, Iraq.

Abdul-Mahdi has expressed support for the protesters’ demands and condemned violence on all sides while resisting calls to step down. He has urged protesters to reopen roads so that life can return to normal, saying the disruptions are costing billions of dollars. He met with senior judicial and security officials at the Federal Police Headquarters late Monday to

discuss how to restore stability while preserving the right to protest and to protect private property, a government statement said. The British Embassy urged Iraq’s government to ensure security forces “protect protesters and act appropriately.” It said on its Facebook page: “Peaceful protest is the right of the Iraqi people. Violence against them is unacceptable.”

EU’s Barnier warns of tough times ahead on UK trade deal By Raf Casert and Barry Hatton Associated Press

LISBON, Portugal — European Union Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier on Tuesday drew the battle lines for the

upcoming free trade talks with the U.K. once it has left the bloc and warned Britain not to undercut EU standards. Barnier said the trade talks after Britain leaves as expected on Jan. 31 might be as tough as the long-running

Brexit divorce negotiations, which have consumed much of the last three years. He said whatever trade agreement emerges, it will cost U.K. businesses, since they would now be outside the 28-nation bloc.

Today in History Today is Wednesday, Nov. 6, the 310th day of 2019. There are 55 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 6, 1984, President Ronald Reagan won re-election by a landslide over former Vice President Walter Mondale, the Democratic challenger. On this date: In 1814, Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone, was born in Dinant, Belgium. In 1860, former Illinois congressman Abraham Lincoln of the Republican Party was elected President of the United States as he defeated John Breckinridge, John Bell and Stephen Douglas. In 1861, Confederate President Jefferson Davis was elected to a six-year term of office. In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower won re-election, defeating Democrat Adlai E. Stevenson. In 1977, 39 people were killed when the Kelly Barnes Dam in Georgia burst, sending a wall of water through Toccoa Falls College. In 1986, former Navy radioman John A. Walker Jr., the admitted head of a family spy ring, was sentenced in Baltimore to life imprisonment. (Walker died in prison in 2014 at age 77.) In 1990, about one-fifth of the Universal Studios backlot in southern California was destroyed in an arson fire. In 1995, funeral services were held in Jerusalem for assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. In 1997, former President George H.W. Bush opened his presidential library at Texas A&M University; among the guests of honor was President Clinton, the man who’d sent him into retirement. In 2001, billionaire Republican Michael Bloomberg won New York City’s mayoral race, defeating Democrat Mark Green. In 2012, President Barack Obama was elected to a second term of office, defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney. In 2016, FBI Director James Comey abruptly announced that Democrat Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges related to newly discovered emails from her tenure at the State Department. Ten years ago: President Barack Obama signed a $24 billion economic stimulus bill, hours after the government reported that the unemployment rate had hit 10.2 percent in Oct. 2009 for the second time since World War II. Five years ago: The march toward same-sex marriage across the U.S. hit a roadblock when a federal appeals court upheld laws against the practice in four states: Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee. (A divided U.S. Supreme Court overturned the laws in June 2015.) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reassured Jordan’s King Abdullah that he would not yield to increasing demands by some members of his center-right coalition to allow Jews to pray at a Muslim-run holy site in Jerusalem. One year ago: Democrats seized the House majority in the midterm elections, but Republicans gained ground in the Senate and preserved key governorships, beating back a “blue wave” that never fully materialized. In Texas, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz staved off a tough challenge from Democrat Beto O’Rourke. Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was defeated by state education chief Tony Evers.

Thought for Today: “The illiterate of the future will not be the person who cannot read. It will be the person who does not know how to learn.” -- Alvin Toffler, American writer-futurist (1928- ).

Currently, there is seamless trade and zero tariffs under common regulations since the U.K. is part of the EU and has unfettered access to a market of almost half a billion consumers. With its Brexit departure, the U.K. hopes to maintain as much access as possible to that wealthy market while at the same time be free to revamp its whole economy, unshackled from EU rules and regulations. Barnier’s message was clear — there is no way that will happen. In the EU, there are fears that Britain will transform itself into a low-regulation economy that would undercut stringent EU social, environmental and other standards.

Barnier warned that “the U.K. should not think that zero tariffs, zero quotas will be enough. The EU will insist on zero tariffs, zero quotas and zero dumping.” “There will be more economic competition — OK — between the EU and the U.K., and that is normal. But the EU will not tolerate unfair competitive advantage,” he warned at the Web Summit in Lisbon. Outgoing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has insisted he wants a “best-inclass” free trade agreement, which comes down to the best trade deal that still allows the U.K. to diverge from EU standards, and potentially head to a U.S.-style low regulation economy. The EU definition of “best”

is different, Barnier said. “For us, it means a free trade agreement whose aim is not only economic and financial profit with zero tariffs and zero quotas but which is also in the interest of the people, their environmental and living standards,” he said. Current plans call for Britain to leave the bloc on Jan. 31 and end a transitional trade period as soon as the end of 2020. Considering that major international trade deals can often take over half a decade to clinch, that seems a precipitously short time. Barnier told the Web Summit that by next summer, it will be clear if the Brexit trade transition period will have to be extended beyond the end of next year.

UK government refuses to release report on Russian meddling By Danica Kirka Associated Press

LONDON — Britain’s government refused again Tuesday to publish a report into possible Russian interference in U.K. elections, arguing that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government needs more time to properly scrutinize the document. The Intelligence and Security Committee report was sent to the prime minister on Oct. 17, and it needs government approval before it is made public. Unless the report is released by early Wednesday when Parliament is dissolved, it won’t be made public before the December general election. Lawmakers from a range of parties, including the Johnson’s Conservatives, urged the government to publish the report during a debate in the House of Commons. But Foreign Office minister Christopher Pincher argued it was “not unusual” for the review of

such reports to “take some time.” “It’s not as if the prime minister has not had one or two other things to do during the last several weeks,” he told the House of Commons. “It’s not unusual that the turnaround time is what it is.” Opposition lawmaker Emily Thornberry accused the government of failing to disclose the report because it would lead to other questions about the links between Russia and the campaign to leave the European Union, which had been spearheaded by Johnson. “If the minister of state is going to dismiss all this as conspiracy theories or smears and say it has nothing to do with the delay of this report, then I say back to him, prove it,” she said. “Publish this report and let us see for ourselves otherwise there is only one question: what have you got to hide?” Earlier Wednesday, the former head of the U.K. domestic spy agency urged the government to publish the report.

All about cookie-baking traditions T

his article was inspired by niece Amy Oster, my sister Elaine’s daughter and her comment on Facebook. Every year for several years she has compiled a list of cookies that she will bake and freeze for Christmas. Then she precedes every weekend to fill the freezers full of delicious cookies. At Christmastime her dad, Ted, plays Santa and delivers cookies to all their family and friends. The rest of this article was suggested by daughter Susan, who says she appreciated all the cookies I baked for her when her Fireweed Gifts Shop had an open house at this time of year. I was invited to make cookies along with a few friends. My “Mom McClure instinct” kicked in and I made cookies by the dozens each day, filling our freezer full of favorite cookies. I always had a new recipe or two to offer also. Susan says there were

platters and platters and boxes and Tupperware containers full of cookies. Metal tins with wax paper liners and wedding cake cookies and fruitcake with nuts. Oatmeal and peanut butter cookies and all kinds bar cookies. We filled the gift shop with cookies on every table. What fun! Kathleen McClure, my brother John’s wife, makes cookies for the freezer this time of year too. She packs and fills her freezer and by Christmas everyone in their family, plus friends, are the recipient of her delicious cookies. We all have the same person to thank for carrying on this tradition. My Mom — Loretta McClure. Amy has carried on this tradition, faithfully making Mom’s cookies and adding some of her own favorites. Kathleen has the same idea and I do the same — except I add new cookies every year. Sometimes I should stick to the old tried-and-true “Grandma

Pioneer potluck ‘Grannie’ Annie Berg McClure’s Cookies.” Then I have friends who bake cookies for special occasions. Pam Burg makes her special chocolate chip cookies for many of our gettogethers or for a birthday gift. I do not know her secret, but they are always YUMMY. Bernie Titara bakes cookies for Christmas and her most famous is the Christmas Wreaths, which are colorfully green with red cinnamon dots for the red tree ornament. She also makes a great pumpkin roll.

Becky Puch is so famous for her pretzel crust strawberry squares. We do have to hide them from Bernie though, if we want one! Gail and Susan are equally great bakers and David is a good cooker too. We all owe it to my Mom (grandma) and her dedication to baking and cooking. I guess I learned very early about sugar cookies from my Grandma Cogswell. She always had sugar cookies in her cookie jar or just coming out of the kerosene oven. I have mentioned many times about how I thought her cookies were real good not knowing they tasted a “little” like kerosene. Grandpa had to have a glass of milk for me and him to dunk the cookies. Sometimes he would invite grandma to the table and we all had cookies and milk. Great memories! Bob’s mom, Shirley Ricks, made the best fruitcake using her applesauce cake recipe. I use it now and

get rave reviews from people who DO NOT like fruitcake. If I have missed one of my family or friends, it is because I need reminded every day! So let me know! We love your cookies too! Mom started the first of November and almost every day had two or three batches of cookies coming out of the oven. Dad got two or three cookies on a plate for his midnight snack. The rest went in the freezer. Actually, Mom baked yearround as she made school lunches for almost 18 school years. Cookies were in the lunches and in the cookie jar for an after-school munch. I do the same, but I do the marathon baking, two or three days in a row. If I get out all the ingredients, I just spend days baking lots of cookies, then packaging them up and freezing them.

Prime time for pumpkin, squash Cooking with either one produces tasty goodness that is perfect for rainy fall days By Teri Robl For Homer News

The family and football game visit to the motherland of Wisconsin is now just a memory, one filled with plenty of things that portray Wisconsin. Cheese, bratwurst and beer. Farms, acres of corn ready for harvest and cows. Colored leaves, pumpkins, squash and cranberries, mums and Halloween décor. Green Bay Packer and Wisconsin Badger football games. Dinners of fried lake perch and brandy old-fashioned cocktails. Delicious cheese, chocolates and sausage made from recipes handed down through generations made at family-operated dairies, shops and meat markets. Lots of smiles, laughs and hugs from all the relatives that make up our zany, wonderful family we don’t see often. I wish I brought squash back to Alaska with me. The Other Fisherman and I bought butternut squash at a roadside stand on a sunny fall day. I had a tough time not buying several to carry back to Alaska. One evening for dinner with the family, I roasted it, scraped the flesh into a bowl, added lots of good butter, some brown sugar, a big glug of pure maple syrup, salted it to taste and ground in generous amounts of black pepper. I mashed it smooth with a fork until it was lump free and creamy. It was the best squash I have ever eaten, ever. Mom said something about the squash being ripe and possibly the squash we are used to buying at the market up here aren’t picked ripe. Whatever the reason, I am not returning from a visit again without at least one squash. Interesting things return home with me when you are into cooking as much as I am. Fall brings us pumpkins, squash, mushrooms, cranberries, apples and pears. I love them all. Pumpkin Butter Makes 21⁄2 cups In the fall, when squash and pumpkins are in season and plentiful, make this delicious pumpkin butter. The silky preserve is sweet and savory. Try it on toast with cream cheese, in whipped cream, or melted into a mixture of sage and brown butter for an autumnal pasta sauce.

A little bit of pumpkin butter is the perfect complement to Teri Robl’s pumpkin bread, as in here in her kitchen in Homer on Oct. 29. 1 (3-pound) sugar pumpkin, stemmed, halved lengthwise, and seeded (not the jack-o-lantern from Halloween!) 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 ⁄4 cup apple cider 1 ⁄3 cup light brown sugar 3 tablespoons honey 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 3 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 ⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger 1 ⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg Pinch of ground cloves Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush cut sides of pumpkin halves with oil. Arrange pumpkin halves, cut side down, on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake in preheated oven until very tender when pierced with a fork, about 50 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Scoop flesh from cooled pumpkin; transfer to bowl of a food processor. Discard pumpkin shell. Add apple cider; process until smooth, about 1 minute, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed. Add brown sugar, honey, vinegar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg, and cloves; process until smooth, about 20 seconds, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Transfer pumpkin mixture to a saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium, stirring occasionally. What is autumn without baking something with warm spices and pumpkin?

For special occasions, reserve a spot on the table for succulent pears Clarion news service

With an abundance of opportunities to entertain between November and January, it’s essential that hosts have company-worthy recipes at the ready. While they might not be a food one traditionally associates with winter, pears are versatile and can be utilized in various recipes, particularly those that will be served when the dessert bell rings. Pears come in many different varieties. However, when preparing this recipe for “Venetian Pears” from “Serena Food & Stories: Feeding Friends Every Hour of the Day” (Stewart, Tabori & Chang) by Serena Bass, Bartlett pears are ideal. Look for pears with a stubby rather than pointy top and the stalks left on. Venetian Pears Serves 10 10 firm Bartlett pears, peeled, halved, and cored, keeping the stem intact on one half 6 cups full-bodied red wine

1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns 2 2⁄3 cups sugar, divided 6 cups full-bodied white wine 1 vanilla bean 1 ⁄2 cup heavy cream, stiffly whipped Cut a level 1⁄2 inch slice off the base of each pear so it will stand up straight. Choose two saucepans — one for the red wine and one for the white — both big enough to hold 10 pear halves. Add the red wine, the peppercorns (see note), half the sugar, and 11⁄2 cups water to one pan; add the white wine, vanilla bean, the remaining sugar, and 11⁄2 cups water to the other pan. Bring each pan to a slow boil and reduce the liquid for 5 minutes. Add the pears, making sure you have five of the ones with stems in the red wine and five with stems in the white. Cover and simmer 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the ripeness of the pears. When a toothpick enters without too much resistance, remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Refrigerate overnight. When you come to arrange the pears on a platter, take 1 red pear half with a stalk and 1 white half without a stalk, and then vice versa; sandwich them together carefully with a tablespoon of the whipped cream. Note: Don’t worry about the peppercorns. Just let them rattle around in the pan and pick off any stuck to the pears after cooking.

What would the holidays be without platters full of homemade cookies? It’s that time of year for pulling out favorite recipes and filling the house with delicious aromas and delectable treats.

Bob gets the not-so-perfect ones and we sometimes get into the frozen ones late at night! Sometimes I share with John and Nikki Turnbull, and when Larry Minehardt is around he gets a plateful. Of course, there are my kids and grands and great-grands who get a handful, or the visitors go home with a plateful. Great granddaughter Braleigh, age 4, comes to visit and the first thing she wants to do is bake a cake or cookies. She “heps” Grannie Annie stir and add the ingredients. “Chocolate chips cookies, please!” While stirring she “accidentally” gets cookie dough on her fingers, then looks at me with a smile and ASKS me if she can lick her fingers! When I go shopping during the rest of the year I pick up brown sugar, white sugar, flour and butter, chocolate chips and nuts and stow them away in freezer or in cupboard. I live too far away from town to jump in the car and go get something I need. I usually have the stash of “cookie-building ingredients” hidden away. Which brings me to the way things have changed through the years as far as ingredients for making cookies, breads and cakes! We had our own eggs and milk and she used lard they rendered in

8 ounces (16 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1⁄2-inch pieces 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar Flour for dusting

Filling 1 cup mascarpone cheese 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 1 ⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract To make the chocolate shortbread: In a bowl, stir together the flour, salt and cocoa powder and set aside. Combine the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat on low speed until the butter and sugar begin to incorporate, about 15 seconds. Add the dry ingredients and continue to mix until the dough comes together, about 3 minutes. It will look dry just before it comes together. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment

the fall. In earlier years, this took place of butter. Then switched to butter-flavored shortening and then to butter. During World War II our neighbors gave her coupons and tokens for sugar, butter, flour for her famous cookies. I can remember how thrilled Mom was to get them. We always had milk and eggs for her baking. The butter we churned was for the table for her biscuits and homemade breads. At Christmastime, big trays of cookies went out the door with a neighbor or relative who came by. Dad delivered cookies at Christmastime to our old farmer neighbors, some who lived alone and some who had spouses who did not bake, or who were just plain too old. Mom always arranged them in perfect rows on the cookie trays. She used waxed paper to cover the top, then tied ribbons to keep waxed paper on. Later when Saran Wrap came out Mom was a loud advocate of this new invention! She used reams of it for her cookie trays. Then stuck a ready-made bow on top. Her cookie trays always looked so colorful. I know, I was involved in the cookie giveaway from 5 years old until I left home at 18. She was a great baking teacher. Cookies were not the only thing Mom kept on the table or cupboard as her cakes and pies were just as delightful.

paper. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough 1⁄4 inch thick. Using a 2-inch star cutter, cut out as many cookies as possible. Gather together the scraps, reroll, and continue cutting out cookies until you have 36 cookies. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 300 F. Bake the shortbread until firm, about 35 minutes. At the midway point, switch the baking sheets between the racks and rotate them 180 degrees to ensure even baking. Let cool on the baking sheets to room temperature. To make the filling: In a small bowl, stir together the mascarpone, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Turn 18 of the cookies bottom-side up on a work surface. Using a table knife or a small icing spatula, spread about 1 tablespoon of the filling on the bottom of each cookie. Top with the remaining cookies, bottom-side down.

We have come a long way in the way we baked. Mom started out with a coal, corncob burning cookstove with a huge oven that was always warm and full of something. No running water, no dish washers, no hot-water heaters. She made her own soap and embroidered her beautiful, very white feedsack dish towels. So the tradition of cookie baking brings back smiles and happy thoughts of our Mom (Grandma) baking cookies and having the pleasure of giving them away at Christmas. It makes me so happy that the tradition has been carried on with as much pleasure as it gave our Mom-Grandma. Memories are made of this. CHERRY NUT COOKIE 1 cup butter softened 2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 3 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda ¾ Teaspoon salt 1 cup chopped pecans 1 cup chopped maraschino cherries, drained and patted dry Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to the cream mixture and mix in by hand the pecans and cherries. Dough will be thick. Drop by teaspoonful 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes and lightly browned.

FRIENDLY FRUITCAKE EVERYONE LOVES Full of dates, nuts and pineapple with none of the citron. Now is the time to make this type of fruit cake — store and wrapped in cheese cloth in fridge or cool place and pour rum or apricot brandy over every week until Christmas. This is not Shirley Rick’s recipe. Oil a 13- x 9-inch foil pan or baking dish. You can bake this in loaves also — but easier to serve in small 2 inch squares. Open and drain: 1 20-ounce can chunk pineapple tidbits — drain and drain on papertowel and pat with another to dry. Cut each tidbit in half. Set aside. (Can use candied pineapple, much easier) Combine in large bowl: 1 cup flour 1 cup brown sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder Pinch of salt (optional) 1 teaspoon cinnamon Place into flour mixture: 2 8-ounce packages chopped dates 1 ½ cups, dried small diced fruit — or you can buy the diced fruit in small packages 1 ½ cup craisins 1 cup golden raisins 1 cup of maraschino cherries — drained, patted dry, halved OR 1 cup candied red cherries — halved 1 ½ cup dried apricots — diced small 1 cup chopped walnuts 1 cup chopped pecans — or Brazil nuts chopped or both The pineapple halves and stir in the flour to coat every piece.

Duke, Kentucky pick up huge opening night wins NEW YORK (AP) — Tyrese Maxey, Kentucky’s latest freshman star, scored 26 points and the second-ranked Wildcats opened the season with a 69-62 victory against No. 1 Michigan State on Tuesday night in the Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden. The Nos. 1 and 2 teams opened their seasons against each other for the first time since 1975 and the Wildcats made their case to be topranked next week. Michigan State entered the season as the No. 1 team in the country for the first time, but aside from All-American Cassius Winston, the Spartans struggled to score. Winston had 21 points.

NO. 4 DUKE 68, NO. 3 KANSAS 66 NEW YORK (AP) — Tre Jones scored 15 points and Cassius Stanley added 11 of his 13 points in

the second half to help Duke beat Kansas in the opener of the Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden. While Duke doesn’t have the star-studded freshmen class of last season of Zion Williamson, Cam Reddish and RJ Barrett, coach Mike Krzyzewski may have a more balanced team, capable of making plays down the stretch when needed.

NO. 5 LOUISVILLE 87, MIAMI 74 CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Jordan Nwora’s 23-point performance included four 3-pointers and a throwdown dunk in Louisville’s season-opening win. The Cardinals are touted as a potential Final Four team, and they lived up to the hype with a rout on the road against an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent.

NO. 6 FLORIDA 74, NORTH FLORIDA 59 GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Kerry Blackshear Jr. had 20 points and 10 rebounds in his Florida debut, and the Gators beat North Florida. Blackshear, who came to Gainesville after four years at Virginia Tech, added three assists and two steals.

NO. 7 MARYLAND 95, HOLY CROSS 71 COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Jalen Smith had 16 points and 11 rebounds, Darryl Morsell scored 15 and Maryland launched a season of high hopes by defeating Holy Cross.

NO. 8 GONZAGA 95, ALABAMA STATE 64 SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Corey Kispert scored a careerhigh 28 points as Gonzaga used a

Hayward nets 39, Celtics win 5th straight CLEVELAND (AP) — Gordon Hayward tied a career high with 39 points, making all 16 of his 2-point attempts, and the Boston Celtics won their fifth straight game by holding off the Cleveland Cavaliers 119-113 on Tuesday night. Hayward put in Kemba Walker’s miss with 22 seconds left to give Boston a 118-113 lead. Walker stole the inbounds pass and hit a free throw to put the game away.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH You might act suddenly on an idea and not even know where it came from. Lately, your dreams have been vivid. You seem more willing to challenge the status quo, but you are weighing the pros and cons of a change. Tonight: If you feel like sharing, do.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH You might see your immediate surroundings as unpredictable. On some level, you have set off these happenings. A change


GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH When all eyes turn to you, you realize it is time to accept a stronger role. You will guide others to achieve what they want. You have a kind leadership style, which others appreciate, yet you make your point. Tonight: Working till the wee hours.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH Reach out for someone you really care for. He or she might be at a distance. You can trust this person’s intentions and know that his or her advice is sincere and heartfelt. Flow with a new idea that breaks your pattern. Tonight: Get tickets to a play or concert.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH One-on-one relating creates a new level of caring. Your ability to understand others emerges. Though you often choose not to let empathy dominate, it is a positive trait of yours. A partner or loved one shares what is ailing him or her. Tonight: Respond to a request or a less than subtle hint.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You could be at odds with what is happening. Even though a disagreement could impact a partnership or financial discussion, continue on the same path. Know that you will resolve any differences in time. Tonight: All smiles.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH A close bond with a child or loved one remains key even if the other party acts in an unstable manner. You might need to rethink a decision more carefully. Tap into your creativity. Tonight: Go for fun and games.

FINE CHINA Dear Heloise: I bought fine china about the time I got married, and for years it was rarely used for anything except holidays. I finally decided that it was time I used it every day. So I do. My children don’t want it; the pattern is not modern enough for them. I figured my husband and I can downsize our home, give away our everyday dishes and start using our best for us! —Gloria in Arizona Gloria, that’s a great idea, although some china needs to be hand-washed, which might lead to

Rubes | Leigh Rubin

BUTTERMILK Dear Heloise: Did you know you can freeze buttermilk? I freeze buttermilk in muffin tins (each mold holds about 1/4 cup). After they freeze solid, I remove them from the muffin tin and store in a plastic bag. When I need buttermilk, I just take out the needed amount. —Mary Ann Y. in Hawaii

LEFTOVER FRIES Dear Heloise: I had several leftover french fries, and I decided to reuse them the following morning at breakfast. I cut them up into small pieces, warmed them in a skillet, added some chopped-up onions, then some eggs and scrambled the whole bunch into a delicious breakfast. —Lorraine B., Roanoke, Va.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Curb a possessive streak that may have been triggered by a matter involving your personal or domestic life. Listen to what is being shared, but proceed on the best course for you. Finances could be involved. Tonight: Buy a token of affection for a dear friend.

HHHH Emotionally, you feel very different from others about an unexpected happening. Although you might experience some chaos, later you’ll find yourself enjoying new choices and seeing different facets of others’ personalities. Tonight: The world is your oyster.

HHHH Your ability to go beyond the obvious remains an asset. Recognize why a key person cannot understand your actions or choices. Perhaps if you explain your decisions in a different way, the other party will get it. Tonight: Return calls first, then decide.

extra work. But go ahead and use all your pretty things. All too often we forget that we need to treat ourselves with as much care as we show our guests. —Heloise

Tuesday’s answer, 11-5

HHHHH You say what you feel with a great deal of passion. Others hear you and respond, though perhaps not as you would like. Listen carefully to what is being shared. You could easily misinterpret another person’s statement. Tonight: Take a midweek break.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

hints from heloise

Dear Heloise: Want a new dessert to surprise your family? Break a cake into pieces and layer it with softened ice cream in a loaf pan, freeze and slice. You can drizzle a flavored liqueur over the slice. Try coffee-flavored liqueur over chocolate ice cream and angel food cake, or perhaps orange liqueur over vanilla ice cream and lemon cake. — Elaina in Connecticut

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

HHHH You often feel as if others dominate in your life. You have a choice —you could say no once in a while. A partner or associate makes a request. If you follow through, the end results will please you. Tonight: Say yes to an invitation.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019:

Peninsula Clarion

Diplomat From Page A1

op-ed in USA Today. “We now know that the call was just one piece of a larger operation to redirect our foreign policy to benefit Donald Trump’s personal and political interests, not the national interest.” Pushing back, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham issued a statement saying the transcripts “show there is even less evidence for this illegitimate impeachment sham than previously thought.” In the transcripts and accompanying cache of text messages, U.S. diplomats are shown trying to navigate the demands of Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who they soon learn is running a back-channel U.S. foreign policy on Ukraine. “It kept getting more insidious,” Sondland told investigators, as the “timeline went on.” Sondland testified that he spoke with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about Giuliani, “and Pompeo rolled his eyes and said: ‘Yes, it’s something we have to deal with.’” In his revised testimony, Sondland, a wealthy businessman who donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration, says his memory was refreshed by the opening statements of two other inquiry witnesses, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, William Taylor, and Tim Morrison, a European expert at the National Security Council. The ambassador initially testified on Oct. 17 that he did not “recall taking part in any effort to encourage an investigation into the Bidens.” He told investigators he didn’t know that the Ukraine firm Burisma, that Trump wanted Ukraine to investigate, was linked to Joe Biden’s son Hunter. But in the weeks since a May visit to Kyiv for Zelenskiy’s inauguration, Sondland and the other diplomats had been heavily involved in Ukraine policy and in text messages about what Trump wanted as they came to realize the military assistance was being withheld. Volker and Sondland both testified they were disappointed after briefing Trump at the White House about the new leader of the young democracy who was vowing to fight corruption. At a pivotal May 23 meeting, Trump “went on and on and on about how Ukraine is a disaster and they’re bad people,” Sondland testified. Trump holds an alternative view, pushed by Giuliani, that it was Ukraine, not Russia, that interfered in the 2016 elections in the U.S., a theory counter to U.S. intelligence findings. “‘They tried to take me down.’ He kept saying that over and over,” Sondland recalled Trump saying. Trump told the diplomats to work with Giuliani on Ukraine issues. Over the time that followed, Volker and Sondland proposed to Zelenskiy’s top aide, Andriy Yermak, that they a draft statement to

be issued by Ukraine on potential interference with the U.S. political process. At Giuliani’s urging, that statement needed to have an “insert at end with 2 key items:” Burisma and the 2016 U.S. elections. “It was Mr. Giuliani who said: If it doesn’t say Burisma and 2016, it’s not credible, because what are they hiding?” Volker testified. Pressed by investigators, Sondland testified that it would be improper for the U.S. to prompt Ukraine to investigate the Biden family. “It doesn’t sound good.” The statement was never issued, as Ukraine refused it. Volker said he told Yermak it was “not a good idea.” Questions swirled after a government whistleblower’s August complaint about Trump’s phone call with Zelenskiy. By September, Sondland also told investigators, Trump was in a “bad mood” and nearly hung up on him when the ambassador asked what it was he wanted from Ukraine. “I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo,” Trump said, according to Sondland. “I want Zelenskiy to do the right thing.” As House investigators released more transcripts Tuesday, they also announced they want to hear from Trump’s acting chief of staff and a top aide to Pence, reaching to the highest levels of the White House. Pence spokeswoman Katie Waldman said the vice president was unaware of the “brief pull-aside conversation” that Sondland reported having with Yermak. She also said Pence was unaware of the ongoing backand-forth over the statement, and that it never came up during his meeting with Zelenskiy. At a closed-door lunch Tuesday, Pence told Senate Republicans the funds were being withheld over concerns that the Europeans weren’t contributing enough aid and issues of corruption in Ukraine, according to a person familiar with the meeting but unauthorized to discuss it and granted anonymity. Trump says the probe is illegitimate and the administration has resumed its efforts to block the inquiry as two more White House officials, an energy adviser and a budget official, declined to appear Tuesday before investigators, even after one received a subpoena. Meanwhile, investigators said they wanted to hear on Friday from Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney. They contend his news conference last month amounted to “nothing less than a televised confession” of Trump’s efforts to have Ukraine investigate Democrats and Biden as the White House was blocking military funding. Trump says he did nothing wrong, and Mulvaney later walked back his remarks. The White House has instructed its officials not to comply with the impeachment inquiry being led by House Democrats. Mulvaney is not expected to appear. Republicans have been unable to deliver a unified argument against the impeachment probe, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he’s “pretty sure” how it all will end.
