In the news Palmer man charged in road rage episode

PALMER — A 47-yearold Palmer man suspected of firing a shot in an apparent road rage episode has been charged with felony assault and misdemeanor reckless endangerment. Brian Burton was arrested Sunday and jailed at Mat-Su Pretrial Facility in Palmer. Online court documents do not list his attorney. Alaska State Troopers shortly after 4 p.m. Sunday were contacted by a man who said a driver had fired a shot at him and his son near Palmer High School. A witness provided a description of the suspect and his vehicle. Troopers and Palmer police contacted Burton at his home. Investigators say Burton became angry at the other driver for some reason, stopped his vehicle and fired a round from a pistol across Bogard Road from Hemmer Road. Troopers seized a pistol.

Cities back online sales tax initiative By Victoria Petersen Peninsula Clarion

The cities of Kenai and Soldotna are joining municipalities and boroughs across the state in an effort to collect sales taxes from online retailers. At their city council meetings on Nov. 6 and Nov. 13 the city of Kenai and Soldotna voted to sign onto the statewide initiative, which could

result in greater sales tax revenues for the cities. The plan, which is being administered by the Alaska Municipal League, will create a sales tax commission for the state. The Alaska Remote Seller Sales Tax Commission — an intergovernmental entity — will contract MuniRevs, a Colorado-based software company, to collect taxes from online vendors.

Both cities approved resolutions authorizing them to become a member municipality of the commission. The resolutions also designate a city representative to the commission. Kenai City Council member Henry Knackstedt said he thinks the initiative will help “level the playing field.” “There are businesses here

that are paying taxes within our city,” Knackstedt said at the Nov. 6 Kenai City Council meeting. “If you want to go buy a shirt or buy a good of some sort, you do pay taxes here. (The initiative) brings the online a little more in line with that kind of competition, so I appreciate that aspect.” Newly appointed Soldotna City Council member Pam Parker also said the initiative

will help balance local and online retailers. “The collection of online sales taxes will level the playing field for some of our brick and mortar businesses in town,” she said at the Nov. 13 Soldotna City Council meeting. Sales tax revenues help s u p p o r t g ov e r n m e nt See taxes, Page A2

village wins coastal grant A fund partnership is helping threatened places around the country fight erosion.

Driver dies in Parks Hwy. crash ANCHORAGE — A driver died on the Parks Highway south of Talkeetna after crashing into a semi-tractor trailer. Alaska State Troopers say a southbound sedan drove in the wrong lane of traffic Sunday night and crashed head-on with a northbound commercial tractor-trailer at Mile 95. Troopers responded to the crash at about 8 p.m. Medics declared the driver dead at the scene. The name of the driver was not released because next-of-kin had not been notified. Heavy snow had fallen on the highway and conditions were icy. The truck driver was not injured. — Associated Press

was among the staffers in the Situation Room who listened and took notes during Trump’s July 25 call with Zelenskiy. In closed-door testimony to impeachment investigators earlier this month, Williams said Trump’s discussion of specific investigations in the July phone call struck her “as unusual and inappropriate.” The requests, she said, seemed tied to Trump’s personal political agenda instead of broader U.S. foreign policy objectives, and seemed to point to “other motivations” for holding up the military aid. Yet Williams said she never raised her concerns with anyone at the White House, including her boss, Pence national security adviser Keith Kellogg. Williams said she included a copy of the call’s rough transcript in the vice president’s briefing book, but she had

NEW ORLEANS — Projects to protect Texas marshes from erosion and an Alaska village from the Bering Sea are getting help from some of the 44 grants awarded by the National Coastal Resilience Fund, a public-private partnership assisting communities threatened by storms and flooding from rising and warming seas. The $29 million in grants announced Monday are being matched by nearly $60 million from government agencies and nonprofits in 20 states, the District of Columbia and two U.S. territories. “This is the way things are supposed to work,” said U.S. Rep. Garret Graves, R-La. “It’s bipartisan, leveraging millions of dollars” in a way that will pay off exponentially, he said at a news conference. The fund partnership was created last year after severe weather caused a record $306.2 billion in damage in the U.S. the year before. It seeks to blunt the impact of extreme weather, flooding and other threats on diverse areas including wetlands, coastal beaches, rivers, streams, oyster beds and coral reefs. The program got 176 applications, including far more high-quality projects than the 44 the fund was able to support, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s director of coastal conservation, Erika Feller said after the news conference at a project site in suburban New Orleans. The Texas General Land Office is getting $3 million, the largest grant on the list, and contributing another $9.5 million to restore about 80 acres of coastal marshes in Galveston County’s Swan Lake. The tiny Native village of Shaktoolik, Alaska — listed in 2009 among a handful of Alaska communities that should move “as soon as possible” because of coastal erosion and repeated flooding — is matching $1 million from the foundation with nearly $5 million to build a coastal berm to protect the spit of land where the village

Rate increase could drive away seniors, raise cost for state By Peter Segall Juneau Empire

On Sept. 1, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services raised the rates for the Alaska Pioneer Homes by increases of 40-140%, leaving many of the state’s seniors wondering if they had the money to pay for their retirement. Costs for the home’s lowest level of care rose from $2,588 to $3,623 a month, and new tiers of service were added with the highest level of care costing $15,000 a month. That rate increase was met with a lawsuit on behalf of pioneers’ home residents and family members on Nov. 4. “Pioneer’s Home residents relied on the rates under which they signed their contracts and reasonable annual rate increase when they sought admission to the Homes,” the suit alleges. “They did not reasonably expect their rates to increase so astronomically in a single month.”

In addition to causing financial worries for pioneers’ home residents and their families, the rates have thrown the program’s financial future into uncertainty. The pioneers’ homes are a statefunded assisted living program open to seniors 65 and older who are in need of aid, benefit or safety, according to the DHSS website. The state has subsidized the cost of care, but earlier this year Gov. Mike Dunleavy proposed cuts to the state spending in an attempt to create a budget where expenditures equal revenues. For the pioneers’ homes, that meant reducing the amount the state subsidizes the program by raising rates on seniors who could afford to pay with the state-funded Payment Assistance Program. “You’ve got someone in the pioneers’ home paying a regular rate, and you raise the rate and that person leaves, someone else who may be low-income comes in,” David Teal, director of the Legislative Finance

Division, said. “Instead of paying the rate, you made empty beds of people who had a lower level of care and replaced with someone with a higher level of care who may not be able to pay.” That would create a situation where the amount the state needs to subsidize would actually increase. It’s too soon to say if that will in fact be the case, Teal said. There are a number of factors which affect people’s decisions to stay or go, and there won’t be enough data for another year or so to know what kind of impact the rate increases will have, according to Teal. Dunleavy spokesperson Jeff Turner declined to comment for this article as it concerns ongoing litigation. Turner referred the Empire to the Department of Law. DOL could not immediately be reached for comment but the department does not typically comment on pending cases. See home, Page A2

Aide’s testimony renews focus on Pence By Jill Colvin and Aamer Madhani Associated Press

WASHINGTON — He knew nothing about the Ukrainian backchannel, his aides say. He was unaware of a pull-aside meeting in Ukraine set up by a member of his own delegation, they insist. And he was in the dark about a monthslong campaign to push Ukraine’s leader to investigate President Donald Trump’s Democratic rivals, they attest — even as he met with and held calls with that leader. Questions about what Mike Pence knew about the events that sparked the House impeachment investigation — and when he knew key facts — are back in the spotlight as an aide to the vice president testifies this week at a public hearing of the House Intelligence Committee. The inquiry centers

on whether Trump abused his office for his own political gain by withholding crucial security aid from Ukraine as aides pressed the country’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, to announce an investigation into the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign and into the business dealings of the son of former Vice President Joe Biden. Pence’s team, for its part, is walking a thin political line in trying to make the case that the vice president was out of the loop on questionable aspects of Trump’s Ukraine policy while also presenting Pence as an influential voice in prodding the president to release the military aid. Jennifer Williams, a career foreign service officer who was detailed to Pence’s office from the State Department, is set to testify Tuesday. She compiled briefing materials for Pence on Ukraine, was in the room when he met with Zelenskiy in September and

Life at the home The six pioneers’ homes across the state serve 497 seniors, according to state data. In Juneau, there are currently 48 residents, according to Gina Del Rosario, home administrator for the Juneau Pioneer Home. Most elders live in shared rooms, Del Rosario said, with shared bathrooms and separate shower facilities. “I’ve found it’s not the size of the room but the community that they have built there, so when a private rooms open, they’re not always interested,” she said. Clinical staff are on-site to provide medical care, but recently the Juneau Pioneer Home resident nurse practitioner was moved to the central office where she oversees all six homes. “We’re very well taken care of, there’s no doubt about that. Our CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistants) are just superb,” said Katie Hursh, who lives at the Juneau Pioneer Home with her husband. Hursh said the only reason she’s in the pioneers’ home is because of her husband who has Alzheimer’s disease.

While she has no complaints about the level of care she and her husband receive, she does have worries about the rate increases. “My rent went up $1,100 from $2,500 to $3,600, and I mean that’s ridiculously high rent because I’m a level 1,” Hursh said. A level 1 is the lowest level of care, and typically only involves room and board, according to Del Rosario. “I was just telling these ladies I kick myself for not going down south,” Hursh said, gesturing to her co-residents Elenor Feero and Marion Rider. Rider is one of the plaintiffs named in the suit against the state. “I have one daughter in Oregon, you get so much more for your money down there.” Hursh said she has lived in Juneau for 64 years, and she and her husband wanted to stay in a familiar place with friends. But with the rate increases she questions whether it’s worth it to stay. “We don’t live in luxury,” Hursh said. “We live small rooms, we share bathrooms. There’s a lot to be said to going down south and having your own apartment.” Hursh said her husband’s poor health was the only thing keeping her here. Before coming into the

pioneers’ home, Hursh and her husband sold their home, so they don’t receive state assistance. But if residents like Hursh and her husband who can afford to pay full price decide to leave, that could lead to the situation alluded to by Teal where paying residents are replaced by subsidized residents.

Hursh said she and some of her co-residents were keeping an eye on the Legislature in hopes there may be a reversal of rate increases. During the Legislature’s regular session earlier this year, the House passed a bill which would reverse the increases enacted under Dunleavy’s budget and tie annual increases to the rate of inflation. That would create a much more modest annual increase in rates. Rep. Zach Fields, D-Anchorage, one of cosponsors of the bill, House Bill 96, said he was optimistic it would pass the Senate. HB 96 “passed the House overwhelmingly,” Fields told the Empire in an interview Friday. “I’m optimistic the Senate will consider it because there’s been

such broad support for the pioneers’ homes.” Fields said HB 96 would establish a much more predictable rate of increase for rates. But not knowing what’s going to happen is stressful for elders and their families, Del Rosario said. “The anxiety of waiting over whether the rate increase would happen was big,” she said. “It caused many sleepless nights for many of the elders.” Del Rosario said that many seniors are concerned because they’re on fixed incomes. DHSS has said that no seniors will be evicted because of inability to pay but that doesn’t necessarily provide reassurance. “That’s pretty cold comfort, when you think, sure they’re going to take all your money before …” Hursh said, trailing off. It raises the question of what the goal of the pioneers’ home should be, Teal said. “You get into arguments about ‘Well, I want to leave money to my kids, why should I pay higher rates?’” Teal said. “There’s so many ways to twist this about what’s fair and what people have been promised, it all makes it a very messy thing.”

across the street,” Lisa Parker said at the Nov. 13 Soldotna City Council meeting. “The city provides a multitude of services through the sales taxes that we collect. These services are not only for you as city residents, but for the approximately 40,000 that live in the central peninsula that also benefit from services here in the city.” Online vendors who make least $100,000 in annual sales or 100 annual transactions in Alaska during the current or previous calendar year will collect sales taxes from the buyer based on the shipping address. For example, residents who are shipping products to their home in Soldotna will be subject to the city’s 3% sales tax and the borough’s 3%

sales tax, totaling 6% in sales tax, when they order online. In areas with no sales tax, like Fairbanks and Anchorage, no sales tax will apply to online orders. Throughout the borough, there is a 3% sales tax, and some cities levy a higher sales tax. The sales taxes will transfer to the commission on a monthly or quarterly basis. The commission and MuniRevs will take a cut of the revenue, and the rest will be distributed to the applicable municipalities and boroughs who have signed on to the agreement. The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly also voted to support the initiative at the Nov. 5 assembly meeting. In 2018, the Kenai Peninsula Borough collected the

second most revenue from sales tax in the state, at $31.5 million. That sales tax revenue directly funds the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. The Seldovia City Council adopted their own resolution Oct. 28, which will authorize their city manager to obtain membership to the commission and designated Seldovia’s city manager, Cassidi Cameron, to represent the city as a member of the commission. In 2018, Seldovia earned $134,881 in sales tax revenue. In 2018, the city of Soldotna raised $7.7 million in sales tax revenue. Homer received $7.85 million. Seward received $5.1 million and Kenai brought in $6.8 million in tax revenue.

Quilters honor those who served By Michael Armstrong Homer News

Veterans Day ceremonies in Homer began with a parade in downtown Homer, continued with a ceremony at the Veterans Memorial at the Alaska Islands and Ocean Visitor Center and ended with a poignant celebration of local vets when the Kachemak Bay Quilters presented seven Quilts of Valor to those who served in peace and war. Iraq War veteran Robert “R.J.” Carlough, one of the quilt recipients, served in Iraq from 2003-04. He was a Bradley Fighting Vehicle driver, and got hit by rocket propelled grenades or his vehicle blown up by improvised exploding devices eight times “and not a scratch on me,” he said. Carlough said he recently came to appreciate the significance of Veterans Day. “It didn’t really hit me until today,” he said. On his mind was the memory of three of his comrades killed in battle on Nov. 8, 2003, in Iraq. Carlough wears a metal band with the names of his friends: Mark Vasquez, Gary Collins and Ryan Young. On the anniversary last Friday, Carlough connected with friends on social media to remember them. “It was a rough day for all of us,” he said. After a lunch honoring local veterans at the Homer Elks Lodge, the Kachemak Bay Quilters presented the Quilts of Valor. Quilter Patrice Kant said the Quilts of Valor Foundation started in 2003 when founder Catherine Roberts had a dream while her son, Nat, was deployed in Iraq.

His quilt was pieced by Karol Miller and quilted by Karrie Youngblood. • Nicholas C. Varney, U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard. Varney joined in 1965 and served in Korea, Edwards Air Force Base in California and the Alaska Air National Guard. He was awarded the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, the Air Force Commendation Medal for

superior achievement and another with an Oak Leaf Cluster for superior performance and a Meritorious Service Medal for Outstanding Scientific Achievement. His quilt was pieced by Linda Wagner and quilted by Karrie Youngblood. • Norman Mosher, U.S. Navy, 1958-1984. He commanded ships in the Atlantic and Pacific fleets.

His quilt was pieced by Janet Bacher and quilted by Karrie Youngblood. • John Benya, U.S. Army, 1965-1966. Benya served in Vietnam and received the Purple Heart. He was nominated for his quilt by his daughter, Joy Davis. His quilt was pieced by Carol Renfrew and quilted by Karrie Youngblood.

What others say

It’s past time to put the country first


ow did America get here? This fractured place where facts matter less and less, and neighbors can’t even share how they really feel. How did we become a nation split by extremists on both sides of the political spectrum, people willing to say and do anything to win and hold power? Witness the shameful defense of President Donald Trump by those who privately know the facts show his unforced Ukraine error replaced national interests with personal ambitions. And, more important, why do the many Americans who fall in the middle of most political debates tolerate the insanity we see daily in Washington, D.C., and even in Columbus at times? Elected Democrats actually called for impeaching Trump before he took office. Republicans had similar plans for Hillary Clinton that magically disappeared when she lost. Both sides exploit every perceived political opportunity while finding more brazen ways to punish or embarrass the other for putting it through the last so-called scandal. Sure, deny us a Supreme Court candidate until a new president arrives, we’ll show you. How would Republicans be handling the Ukraine affair if Clinton was linked to the same set of facts? Unless something miraculously changes, the next Democratic president had better make sure he or she never tiptoes near any problems. We can blame partisan cable news coverage filled with talking heads and extremist websites masquerading as legitimate news operations. Facebook surely has done plenty to spread false and highly partisan information. The mere ability of people to find others with similar prejudices online creates opportunities for once niche causes to gain momentum. Perhaps it’s the fault of the two-party system that consistently produces partisan presidential candidates a significant number of Americans will dislike or even despise. Primary victories require promises that impress the left or right, with the winners trying to convince moderates they didn’t mean what they said a few months before. Yet, the blame really rests on all of us. We continue to allow elite power brokers to play games with our lives. We’ve allowed them and rich special interest groups to drive wedges between young and old, even families. Does anyone believe pre-existing medical conditions should be excluded from medical insurance coverage? Does anyone believe universal health care is possible without higher taxes? Do we want to deport children brought to America by their parents? Do we want our border to be a lawless waypoint? Don’t we wonder why our government failed to stop the opioid epidemic? These are not Democratic or Republican issues. They are American issues that reasonable people should be able to resolve with respectful dialogue. Many of us are too busy with life to navigate beyond the partisans’ carefully crafted talking points — including outright lies — designed to exploit our prejudices and get us angry at the other side. Repeat the same lie enough times and it can become fact to those who don’t consider other viewpoints inside their political cocoon. If you don’t think that’s dangerous, just wait for a deep-fake video putting words in a leader’s mouth. And, worst of all, we’re willing to explain away unacceptable behavior by our side just to preserve power. Democracy can’t be a spectator sport. Being a citizen demands more than just voting. It requires our engagement in our communities and nation. It demands a willingness to put country and community before one’s self-interests, especially if you hold public office. It’s time to ask, what’s best for America or your town? When will we say enough is enough? — Akron Beacon Journal, Nov. 17

letter to the editor |

Help us find Duffy Dear Friends and Neighbors, There are no words, just emptiness. We exist, cry and keep searching. We are in shock — it seems surreal in this small, safe town of Homer to have someone just pulled up into thin air. Did you see something on Thursday, Oct. 17 around lunchtime? Think hard, were you in town that day? Keep her in mind, you might save her life. She is an innocent, vulnerable adult, cheerful and a bit childlike. A Montessori infant teacher, children love her calm patience. She is a dependable homebody. Some of you might recall her book-buying drive for orphans in Honduras, were she volunteered at the orphanage for a year. Or perhaps her Duffy’s Wise Crackers sold at the Farmers Market — and you old timers will remember her endless cookie stands out East. To all the volunteers, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you to those who have searched for her, those who have put up flyers, those who have made us food to sustain us during this terrible time. The love of this community and your efforts to help us find Duffy and get the family through this are what has kept us going. To those at a loss as to what to say to us: there are no words, just give us a look and nod or light touch and we will feel all the love. We are so grateful for your support and help. To her captor: Please just do the right thing and let her go. — Sara Berg, Homer

Impeachment hearings are both proper and painful

ongress, the public, the media must calmly, carefully consider the facts, wherever they lead. This nation has embarked on a grave process for only the fourth time in its history — impeachment of a president. It’s a serious matter that should be treated as such by all concerned. It’s also a wrenching procedure that produces upheaval and can fan partisan flames. And, it must be said, it’s a necessary and entirely constitutional means of holding leaders accountable for misdeeds. It is no “coup” or sham, as Republicans have alleged, and they do harm to the institutions of this country and the Constitution they revere to tear down a basic means for holding presidential power in check. The allegations against President Donald Trump are serious. It’s impossible to believe that if a Democratic president stood accused of attempting to bully a foreign country into investigating his political rival, with a desperately needed aid package hanging in the balance, Republicans would not feel obliged to act. There is no sense in urging that this be a nonpartisan process. It is such by its very nature. But Republicans would do well to approach this inquiry with an open mind, to weigh their desire to protect a president of their party against their obligation to act as a check and balance on presidential power and uphold the Constitution. The first week of testimony already

has shown the need for public hearings. Americans heard powerful testimony from top diplomats William Taylor and George Kent. Both men have unblemished records of service. Both were appointed by this administration. Both have stepped forward, at great risk, to attest that Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was running a rogue operation in Ukraine, attempting to arrange the investigation Trump wanted of his political rival. On Friday, Americans watched witness intimidation unfold in real time as Trump went after former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch on Twitter while she was testifying. Yovanovitch has served the U.S. at some of the most difficult diplomatic posts in the world, from Mogadishu to Moscow to Kyiv. She was known within the national security community for her commitment to rooting out corruption in Ukraine. Her thanks was to have Giuliani launch a smear campaign against her, and have Trump call her “bad news” in his now infamous call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, noting ominously that Yovanovitch was “going to go through some things.” As much as anything, impeachment inquiries briefly lift the curtain on the inner workings of national politics, allowing average Americans to see and judge how politics is being conducted. That can produce

important moments. One such moment came when, in a particularly chilling statement, Yovanovitch attested that “our Ukraine policy has been thrown into disarray, and shady interests the world over have learned how little it takes to remove an American ambassador who does not give them what they want.” No U.S. president has ever been removed from office by impeachment. Two presidents were impeached by the House but acquitted in the Senate. One, Richard Nixon, resigned before the House voted on impeachment charges. The odds are against Trump being convicted by a GOP-dominated Senate. And yet, this inquiry should go forward. Our nation risks lasting damage to its institutions, its security and its ability to act as a stabilizing force in a tumultuous world if it is unwilling to get to the bottom of possible serious misdeeds by its leaders. As difficult as the proceedings are to follow, we urge Americans to do so, because as citizens and voters, they provide the ultimate check and balance. To fulfill that duty, they need both parties to do their level best to vet allegations, witnesses and events. They need a media that upholds its responsibility to provide accurate, comprehensive accounts that illuminate rather than inflame or entertain. It’s time to follow the facts — wherever they lead. — Minneapolis Star Tribune, Nov. 15

Buttigieg speaks at black college in push to boost support By THOMAS BEAUMONT and ERRIN HAINES Associated Press

ATLANTA — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg told a crowd at Morehouse College on Monday that what black voters on the campaign trail most want to hear from him are whether he can win and what he is going to do for black America. Buttigieg told the audience of about 250 people at the historically black, allmale college in Atlanta that a strong showing in mostly white Iowa could help persuade black voters that he can win. Polls have shown that Buttigieg, the white mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has risen into the top tier in Iowa, which hosts 2020’s first presidential caucuses. “One of the best ways to settle the question of electability is to do well in an election,” he said. “Iowa is a way to demonstrate that you can get people to come out for you.” But as he gains momentum in an overwhelmingly white early voting state, the pressure is building on him to demonstrate he can win over black voters, who for now have largely sided with former Vice President Joe Biden. Buttigieg, 37, has stumbled on issues of race, despite having a detailed policy to address systemic racism. On Monday, he discussed his Douglass Plan — named for abolitionist Frederick Douglass — that aims to redress generations of inequality in areas

ranging from education to housing to health care. He also took questions on such issues as voter suppression, funding for historically black colleges, student debt and impeachment. Kaori Anderson-Walker, 19, had heard a bit about Buttigieg on social media but came to Monday’s forum to learn more. He thought the mayor was “phenomenal.” “The way he’s looking out for the black community is much needed,” said Anderson-Walker, a sophomore at Morehouse who said he’s undecided on who he plans to vote for but could see supporting Buttigieg. John Gray spoke briefly to Buttigieg after the forum, asking more about the Douglass Plan and being referred to the candidate’s website for additional information. After taking a selfie with the mayor, Gray acknowledged to a reporter that his initial impression of Buttigieg based off social media and friends was that Buttigieg was “phony,” a perception he said wasn’t disproved by the candidate’s speech. “He has a lot of sympathy for black issues, but, as we saw tonight, he wasn’t the most clear on his plans,” said Gray, an 18-year old political science major at Morehouse who said he likes Bernie Sanders but will support whoever is the eventual Democratic nominee. Since entering the national spotlight, Buttigieg has drawn attention for his handling of race issues as mayor of South Bend, which has a black population of about 27%. Critics slammed

him for firing the city’s first black police chief shortly after taking office, for his handling of blighted neighborhoods and for a recent police-involved killing of an unarmed black man. Last week, his campaign faced fresh scrutiny for using a stock photograph of a black woman and her child on a campaign website, instead of images of people Buttigieg had met, and for listing among South Carolina Democrats who had endorsed the Douglass Plan a handful of people who said they had not given their permission to use their names publicly. Responding to the controversy, Buttigieg said Monday, “That was a learning experience for the campaign staff. We’re cleaning that up. But I’m proud of the support that the plan gets.” Kristen Hope Wilder, president of the Young Democrats of Spelman College — Morehouse’s sister institution — said it was important for Buttigieg to show up at the historically black college. Sanders is also planning to come to Morehouse, and Elizabeth Warren is scheduled to speak at Clark-Atlanta University. Both Sanders and Warren are also struggling to woo black voters away from Biden. “I definitely think that (Buttigieg) probably caught their attention,” said Wilder, 21. “I think a lot of people coming in tonight didn’t know where he stood on certain issues. This gives people the initiative to look more into him and keep an eye on him on the debate stage.”

3 killed in Oklahoma Walmart shooting By Sean Murphy Associated Press

DUNCAN, Oklahoma — Two men and a woman were fatally shot Monday morning outside a Walmart store in southwestern Oklahoma, and the shooter is among the dead, authorities said. Two victims were shot inside a car and the third died in the parking lot just before 10 a.m. in Duncan, Police Chief Danny Ford said. Authorities did not immediately describe a motivation for the shooting. Ford told The Associated Press that investigators believe the gunman shot the male and female victims and then turned the gun on himself. Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks authorities said during the news conference Monday afternoon that there was never an active shooter inside the store and he described the shooting as an isolated incident. He did not further explain. Hicks said the two victims had been inside the Walmart Money Center, which offers check-cashing, money orders, tax preparation and other services, before they were killed, but that the shooter did not enter the business. Two bodies covered with sheets were visible in the parking lot Monday afternoon. One body was in the driver’s seat of a red, two-door car. The other body was lying on the ground next to the vehicle. Bullet holes were visible in the car’s windshield. Police said in a Facebook post that a handgun was found at the scene. At the news conference, Ford described the gun as semi-automatic but said he had no further details. He said the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation was still processing the scene. Ford said he believed nine shots were fired. Authorities have not released the identities of those killed but did confirm the shooter was among the

LA PAZ, Bolivia — Residents in several Bolivian cities are reporting food and gasoline shortages because of protests by supporters of President Evo Morales, who resigned and fled to Mexico after a disputed election and nationwide unrest. Bolivia’s interim government said Monday that its efforts to resupply La Paz faced challenges because demonstrators cut off some transport routes. The new leadership is also struggling to open dialogue with opponents, particularly after the shooting deaths of nine pro-Morales coca growers during a confrontation with security forces Friday. Furious over the shootings,

Trump checkup draws skeptics WASHINGTON — A lack of notice. Failure to level with the American people. A tough week for the White House as public impeachment hearings got under way. Add it all up, and President Donald Trump’s unscheduled weekend visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center raised suspicions about his health, despite White House officials’ insistence that the president was merely getting a head start on his physical. “The one thing you can be absolutely sure of is this was not routine and he didn’t go up there for half his physical,” tweeted Joe Lockhart, a press secretary under President Bill Clinton, who was himself impeached for perjury and obstruction. “What does it mean? It means that we just won’t know what the medical issue was.”

dead. Ford said all three knew each other but declined to describe their relationships or other identifying information pending notification of immediate family. He said all three were dead when police arrived just minutes after the shooting. Walmart spokeswoman LeMia Jenkins initially said no staff were involved. Jenkins later released a statement offering thoughts and prayers for the family of the woman killed in the shooting, who she said had been with the company for less than two months. Jenkins said the woman was at the Walmart during her free time and wasn’t scheduled to work that day. Duncan is about 80 miles south of Oklahoma City. The Walmart is in

a commercial center that includes a sporting goods store and a dollar store along U.S. Highway 81, the main road that passes through Duncan heading south toward Texas. There were more than 100 vehicles in the parking lot about two hours after the shooting plus a steady stream of customers coming and going from Walmart, which remained open for business. It was at least the third shooting at a Walmart in the U.S. this year. A Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, reopened Thursday after being closed since August, when a gunman opened fire in the busy store, killing 22. Just days before, two Walmart employees in Mississippi were killed by a man authorities described as a

disgruntled Walmart worker. The killings in Oklahoma come amid a spate of high-profile shootings across the U.S. A 16-year-old student at a high school in the city of Santa Clarita outside Los Angeles shot and killed two classmates and wounded three other teens Thursday before shooting himself in the head. He died the next day. In New Jersey, players and spectators ran for cover Friday night when a gunman opened fire at a high school football game, wounding two people. And on Sunday, four people were killed and six wounded in Fresno, California, where police say two shooters sneaked into a backyard party and shot into a group of Hmong family and friends.

Food, gasoline shortages reported in Bolivian cities By Paola Flores

Across the U.S.

backers of Morales demanded the resignation of Jeanine Áñez, Bolivia’s self-proclaimed interim president. She was a Senate vice president thrust into prominence after the resignations of senior leaders in Morales’ administration. Bolivian church leaders announced plans to begin talks involving U.N. envoy Jean Arnault. They appealed for the participation of Morales’ Movement Toward Socialism party and said topics would include new elections and calls for a new election panel. Former President Carlos Mesa, who finished second to Morales in the disputed Oct.20 election, said he would participate. The new hydrocarbons minister, Víctor Hugo Zamora, told Bolivia’s

ATB television that a gasoline supply convoy was having difficulty reaching the city because of roadblocks and ditches dug by protesters. Many shops in La Paz were closed and the few that opened were charging double the normal price, resident Guillermina Chura said. “What are we going to give to our families if things continue this way?” Chura said.

Nobody who is drawn to the past and learning about the past is not gifted.” -- Mike Nichols (film director, born in 1931, died on this date in 2014).

Peninsula Clarion

Blake, Vigil, Wylie wear Lancer crowns Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The Homer Mariners finished third at the Lancer Smith Memorial Girls Tournament on Saturday in Palmer. With nearly all the top wrestlers present from both small and big schools, the tournament is billed as the toughest in Alaska. North Pole won the title with 147 points, while Bethel was next with 98 points and the Mariners scored 95 points. Also from the peninsula, Soldotna

was ninth and Nikiski was 31st. Sadie Blake, at 125 pounds, and Rayana Vigil, at 189 pounds, led the Mariners by taking individual championships. Also for Homer, Mariah Grimes was fifth at 160 and Mina Cavasos was sixth at 119. Amanda Wylie paced the Stars by taking home the individual crown at 160. Also for Soldotna, Trinity Donovan placed fifth. Destiny Martin was the lone wrestler for Nikiski and finished 2-2 at the event.

Vanderford moves to 9-0 in pro MMA Staff report Peninsula Clarion

Austin Vanderford, a 2008 graduate of Ninilchik School, improved to 9-0 in his professional mixed martial arts career with a victory over Grachik Bozinyan at Bellator 234 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The event

happened late Thursday night Alaska time. Vanderford, who won an NAIA wrestling title for Southern Oregon University at 184 pounds in 2012, is now 3-0 in Bellator. He did it against a fighter who came in with a 10-3 record. Vanderford won by unanimous decision.

Carstens gets off to fast start in college Staff report Peninsula Clarion

Bethany Carstens, a 2019 graduate of Nikiski High School, has gotten her basketball career at Division I Chicago State University off to a fast start. In just her second game,

Carstens cracked the starting lineup against Arizona. She made 4 of 8 shots and scored 10 points in an 82-50 loss to the Wildcats. She also grabbed two rebounds. Carstens has hit 2 of her 3 3-pointers in each of her two games.

Lafleur gets victory at Catalina Half Staff report

Seward’s Hannah Lafleur was the top woman in the Catalina Half Marathon in California and placed fourth overall Saturday. The course is 13.1 miles long and had 2,753 feet of

elevation gain and loss. Lafleur, who won the women’s Mount Marathon Race last summer, finished in 1 hour, 37 minutes and 11 seconds. She held off California runner Evelyne Ruiz by just 18 seconds. Lafleur broke the course record by more than four minutes.

Todd wins again PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) — Two tournaments, two victories. BrendonTodd returned Monday morning and quickly holed an 18-foot birdie putt for a one-shot lead, then closed with two nervy pars for a 3-under 68 to win the Mayakoba

Golf Classic for his second straight PGA Tour victory. He won the inaugural Bermuda Championship two weeks ago. “It’s just amazing how fast this game can turn,” Todd said. “It turned fast in the wrong direction for me in 2015.”

Clarification This is a clarification for the article that ran in the Sunday paper on Homer’s state volleyball championship. The Mariners won their last state championship in 1990, also in the 1989-90 school year.

Before the 1997-98 school year, volleyball was played in the late winter, with the state championship coming in April. The state finals now are held in November. So a volleyball state title in the 1989-90 school year would have come in 1990.

Chiefs hold off Chargers By Greg Beacham AP Sports Writer

MEXICO CITY — Nearly everything about this Monday night game felt foreign to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, from the gasp-inducing altitude of raucous Azteca Stadium to the struggles of their powerhouse offense. Mahomes loved the experience, but didn’t love how his offense played. The Chiefs’ defense picked it up time and again, culminating in the final pick that sent them all back home as winners. “We kept that confidence all game long,” Mahomes said. “We knew that someone was going to make a play to

win the game.” Daniel Sorensen snared Philip Rivers’ fourth interception at the goal line with 18 seconds to play, and the Chiefs stayed on top of the AFC West with a 24-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. Mahomes passed for 182 yards and hit Travis Kelce for his only touchdown, while LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams rushed for touchdowns as the Chiefs (7-4) hung on to win the fourth regular-season NFL game played in Mexico despite being held to 310 yards of offense. They also survived a few problems with Azteca’s grass field and a one-sided first half

favoring the Chargers (4-7), who racked up 312 yards without a touchdown. After throwing his second interception of the season in the first half, Mahomes led two sharp scoring drives in the third quarter with help from Kelce, who caught seven passes for 92 yards. Mahomes also led the Chiefs with 59 yards rushing while his defense — which had only six interceptions all season coming into Mexico City — held Los Angeles to eight points in the second half. But the win still wasn’t assured until Sorensen grabbed Rivers’ underthrown pass to Austin Ekeler at the goal line to secure the Chiefs’

10th win over Los Angeles in 11 meetings. “I was real proud of our defense for the job that they did,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “Four takeaways, so for the guys that intercepted the football and then helped create the turnovers, I’m proud of those guys.” Rivers passed for 353 yards during his first four-interception game since November 2016 for the Chargers, whose playoff hopes are nearly dead after five losses in seven games. Keenan Allen caught his first TD pass since Week 3 in the third quarter, but the Chargers had three inept drives in the scoreless fourth quarter.

Kyle Busch nabs NASCAR title By Jenna Fryer AP Auto Racing Writer

HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Kyle Busch casually collected the championship flag from his team and did a slow, subdued celebratory lap. The most polarizing driver in NASCAR had just won his

second Cup title and wanted to soak in the moment with his true fans. He didn’t do his customary bow to the crowd, asked NASCAR for permission to take his 4-year-old son along for the ride to victory lane, and when the duo finally got there it was then that Busch

remembered he’d just won both Sunday’s season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway and his second NASCAR title. “I do remember taking the white flag and crossing underneath that — I had some tears rolling down my eyes for the last lap and I was

just like, ‘Come on, man, we’ve still got to finish this damn thing. Don’t be such a siss,’” Busch said. “Emotions were starting to set in. I probably didn’t know where the hell my mind was at. I knew we had won and won big

NASCAR From Page A6

and were being a big more subdued about it.” Busch emerged from the Joe Gibbs Racing juggernaut as NASCAR’s latest champion, winning his second title Sunday after teammates Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. were slowed by pit-road gaffes. He snapped a 21-race losing streak and beat Hamlin, Truex and rival Kevin Harvick for the Cup. Busch joined seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson as the only active drivers with multiple titles. He’s the 16th driver in NASCAR history to win multiple championships, and one of only five to win titles in

both the Cup Series and the second-tier Xfinity Series. The No. 18 crew climbed the pit wall and handed Busch the championship flag for his post-race celebration, and he was met on the frontstretch by son Brexton, who immediately asked: “Dad, are you going to throw me in the air again?” about their celebratory tradition. He also asked to join his father for the final ride into victory lane. Busch had raced for a second championship in each of the last three seasons and fell short a year ago in part because of his crew’s own pit error. This time, it was Truex and Hamlin bitten by silly mistakes. Truex dominated early but fell a lap back after his crew put tires on the wrong side of his Toyota.

Tagovailoa gets good news after surgery TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama’s team surgeon said Tua Tagovailoa’s prognosis was “excellent” after the quarterback underwent surgery to repair a dislocated hip, although there is no timeline for Tagovailoa’s recovery. Dr. Lyle Cain said Tagovailoa is expected to recover fully after Monday’s surgery in Houston — probably the best possible news the QB could have received about the devastating seasonending injury, which has cast a cloud over his football future. The 2018 Heisman Trophy runner-up, Tagovailoa emerged as a likely high draft pick — possibly No. 1 overall — with fans of downtrodden NFL teams using the Twitter hashtag “Tankfortua” to show their hopes of getting the QB in the draft.

If Tagovailoa does decide to enter the draft, it’s unclear how the injury will affect how teams evaluate him. Saban isn’t publicly speculating on Tagovailoa’s prospects. “Our concern is about him getting healthy,” the coach said. “This is going to be a long recovery for him, but we fully expect a full recovery. No one’s really speculating or talking about what’s best for him to do in the future. My only concern is that he can do what’s best for him in his future. I don’t know if right now’s the time to be thinking about that, when you’re thinking about the guy’s health and wellbeing and recovery.” Saban pointed out that New York Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley also dislocated a hip in the national championship game to end the 2011 season.

Capitals get best of Ducks in feisty matchup WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Ovechkin scored a power-play goal, Garnet Hathaway was ejected for spitting during a heated brawl and the Washington Capitals beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-2 in feisty matchup Monday night. Hathaway was given a

match penalty and thrown out for spitting on Anaheim’s Erik Gudbranson in the latter stages of a fracas between the teams late in the second period. Even after the game misconduct that’s automatic for spitting, Hathaway could face more discipline from the

NHL office in the form of a fine or suspension.

wrong to do it so she could spend the weekend with a former lover. (What am I? A consolation prize?) I ended the relationship over the brush-off she gave me, but she is trying to renew things. Was I wrong to take this as serious enough to end the relationship? — PERPLEXED EX IN MISSOURI

DEAR ABBY: I am a 70-year-old widower. For the past year I’ve been dating a woman, “Celeste,” and our relationship was growing closer (we were intimate, and we seemed to be becoming a couple). Because she’s a big fan of a particular performer who was going to be in our area, I bought tickets for us two months in advance. They were quite expensive. Celeste knew about it and was eager to go. On the day of the performance, when I went to pick her up, she informed me that she wouldn’t be able to go. A friend had just come into town (passing through on business) and surprised her with a visit. She apologized and promised she’d explain later that weekend. Well, the man turns out to be a former beau she hadn’t seen in about a year. Celeste seems to think I should be OK with her canceling our date, but I can’t help but feel she was

DEAR EX: You were not wrong. Celeste stood you up, which was, to say the least, inconsiderate of your feelings. (Did she offer to reimburse you for those tickets? I’m betting she didn’t.) She’s trying to renew the romance with you (for now) because her former beau’s visit ended. When he called, she should have told him she had a previous commitment and honored it. That she didn’t shows she is self-centered and will continue to be if you allow it. Eligible men your age are a hot commodity. It shouldn’t be too hard to find someone who appreciates what you have to offer. Move on.

Kelly Cooper files as undeclared for House District 31 race By Michael Armstrong Homer News

With the 2020 general election a year away, the race for House District 31 Representative has already started. On Thursday, Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly President Kelly Cooper filed her letter of intent to run for the seat now held by Rep. Sarah Vance, R-Homer. Cooper, 58, has registered as undeclared, and said she hasn’t decided whether she will run in the Alaska Democratic Party primary or the general election as an independent candidate. Democratic Party rules allow candidates not registered for a political party to run in their primary elections. To keep her options open, Cooper

no way of knowing whether Pence read it. Pence has said that nothing about the transcript struck him as off-base, but hasn’t said when he first focused on it. As the impeachment inquiry moves forward, Pence is broadly following the careful approach he took during much of the first two years of Trump’s presidency, as special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian

has said she intends to run in the primary. Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board member Zen Kelly is her campaign treasurer, and Cooper said she already has volunteers signed up for her campaign. Vance filed her letter of intent in August to run for re-election in the Republican Party primary. Filing a letter of intent to run for a seat allows candidates to begin fund raising. Now in her second, threeyear term on the assembly, Cooper cannot run again under borough term-limit rules. Her term expires in October 2020. Cooper said she’s running for representative because of dissatisfaction with partisanship in the Alaska Legislature.

“After watching last year’s session I grew extremely frustrated,” she said. “I decided to Kelly Cooper run to reject the partisan dysfunction and instead carry forward the independent traditions of the Alaska I know and love.” Former Rep. Paul Seaton, who served 16 years in the Legislature before being defeated by Vance in his last run for re-election in 2018, said he has no intention of running again. Seaton had been elected as a Republican, but ran as a nonpartisan under the Democratic Party banner after the Republican Party establishment pulled its

support for him because he had joined a bipartisan and independent caucus. “I served 16 years and it’s time to have other people step up to the plate and have this representation in Juneau,” Seaton said. “Knowing Kelly and her background and her very good representation for the peninsula in the assembly, I would be very comfortable with her representing us in the Legislature.” A 17-year Alaska resident, Cooper has served on the assembly since 2014, representing District 8, the Homer and Kachemak City area of the southern Kenai Peninsula. Cooper got her start in local public service on the South Peninsula Hospital operating board. A widow who lost her husband, Jim, to pancreatic

cancer, Cooper also has been active in awareness of pancreatic cancer, serving on the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and in Homer’s Relay for Life, part of a nationwide fund­and awareness-raising effort sponsored by the American Cancer Society. Cooper owns Glacier View Cabins and Coop’s Coffee. During her time with the assembly, Cooper has served on the Borough’s Health Care Task Force, co-chaired a subcommittee creating the emergency services highway corridor service area in the Hope/Cooper Landing/ Moose Pass district, served on the work group getting the Watermelon Trail rerouted and completed and made the Homer Annex available for telephonic testimony.

“I get comments from my constituents on a regular basis for being a voice of reason and voting for the issue and not on party lines,” she said. “… Given my history in the last six years on the assembly, my constituents both conservative and liberal will say I’ve been responsive to everyone.” Cooper had been assembly president in 2016 and then was selected again for that role in October. Though technically nonpartisan, she said the assembly can be partisan at times, with a diverse group ranging from liberal to conservative. “That body of eight members selected me to be their president,” she said. “I think that’s a signal we can be nonpartisan and get work done.”

interference in the 2016 election hung over the administration. At times, he seemed cut off from how decisions were being made. After the sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey, Pence echoed administration talking points that the decision by Trump to fire Comey came only after the president received a memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Days later, Trump undercut Pence and others by saying he was planning to fire Comey even before the memo and had considered it since the start of his administration.

Pence’s aides have spent recent weeks trying to distance him from the impeachment inquiry, as Pence himself insists the president did nothing wrong. Pence spokeswoman Katie Waldman has said the vice president was unaware of efforts to push Zelenskiy to release a statement announcing investigations. And Pence has said no such push came up during his September meeting with Zelenskiy in Warsaw, even as the leaders discussed the U.S. military aid that was under review. Waldman also said Pence was unaware of the “brief

pull-aside conversation” that Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, reported having with a top aide to Zelenskiy following the Pence-Zelenskiy meeting. Sondland has said he told Andriy Yermak that the “resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anticorruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks.” Pence would hardly be the first vice president to find himself out of the loop. Matt Bennett, who was serving as an aide to Vice President Al Gore when news of

President Bill Clinton’s affair with a White House intern broke, recalled the vice president being caught offguard by the revelation. Bennett remembers Gore asking, “Who the hell is Monica Lewinsky?” Compared with his recent predecessors, Pence has had less of an impact in shaping presidential policy initiatives, says Bennett. He said Trump often operates as a team of one. George W. Bush, for instance, leaned heavily on Vice President Dick Cheney in carving out the rationale to launch the Iraq war and in

designing the war on terrorism. Cheney was tasked to help vet potential running mates for Bush as a presidential candidate and ultimately ended up with the job himself. Barack Obama asked Biden to spearhead his push to draw down troops from Iraq and deputized Biden to do the heavy lifting on an unsuccessful push to overhaul the nation’s gun laws following the rampage at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 26 dead. On the campaign trail, Biden often boasts that he was the “last person in the room” with Obama before every major decision.

another $3 million. A grant of $2.4 million, with a matching grant of $2.5 million by suburban Jefferson Parish will build a series of stone breakwaters, behind which silt can build up to create 60 to 70 acres of marsh, tidal creeks and lagoons along a mile-long stretch of beleaguered Lake Pontchartrain shoreline. A pile-driver was pounding

65-foot pilings into the estuary’s mucky bottom on Monday for a boardwalk planned to go through the wetlands’ eastern edge. The smallest grant, totaling $75,000 and matched by an equal amount of local money, will enable the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management to pay for preliminary assessment and design work to build green

infrastructure along 49 acres along the Quonochontaug Salt Pond. Other projects are in California, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maine, Michigan, North and South Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Virginia, Washington, Guam and Puerto Rico. Money for the fund came from the National

Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,Shell Oil Co. and Transatlantic Holdings Inc., also called TransRe. Four projects in California are receiving nearly $2 million, including $1.4 million to set levees back from a tidal creek area to reduce flooding and reconnect tides to brackish wetlands. The Contra Costa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District

is contributing another $12.3 million for the work at Walnut Creek. The District of Columbia’s Department of Energy and Environment is receiving $250,000 and contributing $500,000 to develop preliminary designs to restore Oxon Run in the southeast section of the nation’s capital, including plans to remove nearly a mile of concrete lining the stream bed.

Camel, cow, donkey roam Kansas road, ‘halfway toward a live Nativity’ Associated Press

GODDARD, Kan. — Authorities discovered a camel, a cow and a donkey roaming together along a Kansas road in a grouping reminiscent of a Midwestern Christmas Nativity scene. The Goddard Police Department asked for help Sunday locating

the owners of the “three friends traveling together (towards a Northern star).” Goddard police said in a Facebook post that if they couldn’t find the owners, they would be “halfway toward a live Nativity this Christmas season.” Sedgwick County Sheriff ’s Lt. Tim Meyers said

the animals belong to an employee of the nearby Tanganyika Wildlife Park. One person who replied to the Facebook post inquired, “Are there 3 wise looking men near?” Another speculated that they “may lead you to the Second Coming.” Goddard is about 15 miles west of Wichita.
