Inside the Gates: Unaccompanied veterans honored by military family

For various reasons, military veterans sometimes die without family or friends to make their final arrangements or attend their funerals. They’re referred to as unaccompanied veterans.

A group at Fort Richardson on Sunday stepped in to lay to rest one of those veterans: Army Sgt. Dale Lee Milline. His family couldn’t be located after he died in November 2018.

Vice Commander of the American Legion Department of Alaska Art Bell says life can take strange turns, but people shouldn’t be alone at the ends of their lives.

Financial results from Q2 were mixed, with Nutrien and CF both outperforming expectations, while Mosaic was still licking the wounds suffered from the recent unprecedentedly wet spring season. Saturated soils, persistent rainfall and flooding rivers interrupted the movement and application of fertilizers throughout the country.
Because of the lower crop output anticipated for 2019, corn futures spiked in June. Corn crop conditions have improved somewhat in recent weeks, dragging futures lower. However, we expect some upside in futures prices once the USDA corrects its much-criticised area and yield expectations in its upcoming August report.

DONGGUAN, China/HONG KONG (Reuters) – Huawei Technologies [HWT.UL] unveiled on Friday its proprietary operating system for use in smartphones and other devices, as U.S. trade curbs imposed in May threaten to cut the Chinese firm’s access to crucial U.S. technologies such as Android.
“Harmony OS is completely different from Android and iOS,” said Richard Yu, head of Huawei’s consumer business group, referring to operating systems developed by Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google and Apple Inc (AAPL.O).
“You can develop your apps once, then flexibly deploy them across a range of different devices,” he told a developers’ conference held in Dongguan in southern China, where Huawei has built a lavish new campus modeled after European towns.

President Trump has been attacked or partially blamed for the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, by rivals because it is easier to assign blame than to act, according to Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.
Violent attacks, however, do not have a claim in one single political movement or party, Gaetz said Thursday on “The Ingraham Angle.”
“Right now, we have a left that is unwilling in America to confront the real challenges that we have,” he said. “Whether its the collapse of fatherhood in this country — you look at these mass shooters, very rarely do you see a positive, productive relationship with a father figure.

Derek and Maria Broaddus purchased their dream house for $1.4 million in June 2014 — but they were chased away before they could move in, due to a nightmarish letter from a writer who goes by “The Watcher.”

Having some dog bites occur aboard its planes doesn’t give Delta Air Lines the OK to ban a specific breed, the federal government determined Thursday.
Delta enacted a ban against “pit bull type dogs” as support animals last year following several onboard incidents. In one case, a passenger was left with a bloody face after another passenger’s dog attacked him.
But on Thursday, the federal Department of Transportation clarified the rules for airlines regarding animals traveling with passengers. The DOT said that airline employees can bar any animal they consider a safety threat. But they cannot issue a blanket ban against an entire breed of dog or cat, such as pit bulls.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – A Romanian citizen arrested on an international warrant has admitted using skimming devices in upstate New York ATMs to get account information used later to steal money from customers’ accounts.
Gheorghe Cirstea pleaded guilty to federal theft charges this week in Albany. He admitted that he and co-conspirator Ilie Sitariu used skimming devices and pinhole cameras at ATMs in the Capital Region of New York in 2015. They then withdrew $127,000 from the customers’ accounts through ATMs in New York City.
Sitariu was sentenced to 48 months in prison in 2017. Cirstea faces a maximum of five years in prison when he’s sentenced in December.

Japanese trading house Mitsui & Co Ltd (8031.T), which bought a small stake in Beyond Meat in 2016, said it previously planned to partner with the U.S. company to sell plant-based meat alternatives in Japan, but there was no longer such a project.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) – Malaysia filed criminal charges Friday against 17 more current and former directors at three Goldman Sachs subsidiaries for their role in the alleged multibillion-dollar ransacking of state investment fund 1MDB.
Malaysian and U.S. prosecutors allege that bond sales organized by Goldman Sachs for 1MDB provided one of the means for associates of former Malaysian leader Najib Razak to steal billions over several years from a fund that was ostensibly set up to accelerate Malaysia’s economic development.
The government in December filed criminal charges against Goldman Sachs and two former executives for breaches of securities laws including making false, misleading statements to investors.
Attorney General Tommy Thomas said the 17 people in the most recent filings were charged under the Malaysian Capital Markets and Services Act for conniving to commit the massive fraud.

BERLIN (AP) – German exports were a little lower in June than the previous month and dropped 8% in year-on-year terms, reinforcing expectations that data due next week may show the economy shrank slightly in the second quarter.
The Federal Statistical Office said Friday that exports were 0.1% lower than in May in seasonally adjusted terms, following a steep 3.2% drop in April and a partial 1.3% recovery in May. Imports rose 0.5% on the month but were down 4.4% in year-on-year terms. Month-on-month export and import data were both in line with economists’ expectations.
Second-quarter gross domestic product figures are due Aug. 14. Germany’s economy is believed to have turned in a feeble performance from March to June after returning to growth in the winter, a forecast bolstered by recent data.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) – Miami Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills says he has no hard feelings toward Stephen Ross regarding the team owner’s support of Donald Trump, and says his objections to a fundraiser for the president aren’t political.
But Stills says there’s a contradiction in Ross supporting both racial equality and Trump.
“It’s not right,” Stills said following the Dolphins’ preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons. “Our country is in a rough place right now. I think there are other candidates he could support, but it’s not about Democrat or Republican. It’s about why are you trying to help this man raise money to continue to do the things he has been doing.”
In the wake of his recent criticism, Stills said, he has received death threats – “five to 10 in a night” – on social media but didn’t report them.

The woman who says she was just 15 when pedophile Jeffrey Epstein forcibly raped her asked a Manhattan court on Thursday to make Epstein reveal the identity of the woman who “recruited” her into the multi-millionaire’s alleged harem of underage women.
Jennifer Araoz, who claims Epstein raped and sexually abused her in his Upper East Side mansion, says in a draft lawsuit that she was recruited for the abuse by an unknown woman outside of her Manhattan school.
In papers filed in Manhattan civil court Thursday, Araoz asked for Epstein to be deposed and forced to turn over a log of every person who visited his Upper East Side manse from 2001 to 2003, as well as a list of people he kept in his employ.
The deposition and the documents may reveal the identity of Araoz’s recruiter — so Araoz can add the woman to a civil claim against Epstein

ST. LOUIS — A man died Thursday morning after being found unresponsive at St. Louis’ medium-security jail known as the Workhouse.
A spokesman with Mayor Lyda Krewson’s office said Christopher W. Brown, 35, was found unresponsive at the jail at 8:12 Thursday morning. He said paramedics were called to the scene, but Brown was pronounced dead just before 9 p.m.
Brown was being held in the Workhouse starting on July 31, after an arrest in connection with a probation violation. He was on probation for resisting arrest and tampering with a car back in July of 2018.
This is the second inmate to die at the Workhouse in just over a year. An inmate collapsed and died at the jail last August, leading to questions and lawsuits about the conditions at the facility.

Israeli security forces are continuing their search for the terrorist responsible for the murder of Dvir Sorek, the Ofra resident and hesder student at Ohr Torah Mahanayim yeshiva who was stabbed to death sometime Wednesday night.
Security officials say the terror cell responsible for the attack may be planning an additional attack, making it all the more important for the IDF to locate the cell before it can strike again.
The IDF is also concern about the possibility of copycat attacks by other terror cells or even individual terrorists elsewhere in Judea and Samaria who may be inspired by Sorek’s murder.
Two additional battalions have been deployed to Judea and Samaria, with extra soldiers positioned at sensitive areas and known hot-spots to prevent attacks.
Sorek, who was killed just days before his 19th birthday, was the son of journalist Yoav Sorek, editor of Hashiloach, and his wife Rachel, and was

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Taylor Swift looks stunning on the September cover of Vogue, but it’s what she reveals inside that you’ll want to see.
The “You Need to Calm Down” singer dives right in, saying she finds herself in a totally different place than three years ago, when she was in the middle of a public he-said she-said brawl with Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West over lyrics he used to describe her in one of his songs.
Swift says she is at peace now, though at the time felt embarrassed, shamed and bullied by the couple.
“When you’re going through loss or embarrassment or shame, it’s a grieving process with so many micro emotions in a day. One of the reasons why I didn’t do interviews

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Netflix has more than one show rooted in 1980s nostalgia. But where “Stranger Things” mostly revels in the cultural artifacts of those years — from pop-culture references to hanging out at the mall — “GLOW” dispenses with the rose-colored glasses, casting a much less flattering light on the era.

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) – Isolated on an emerald green hunk of volcanic rock closer to Tokyo than Honolulu, people on the U.S. territory of Guam like to joke that whatever happens on the mainland takes a long time to reach them. While the U.S. Catholic Church has been roiled by the child sexual abuse scandal for nearly two decades, the island’s faithful are still reckoning with new revelations from survivors long shamed into silence by men who claimed divine authority.
At least 223 lawsuits have been filed against 35 clergymen, teachers and Boy Scout leaders tied to Guam’s Catholic archdiocese. The archdiocese has filed for bankruptcy protection, and survivors have until Aug. 15 to come forward.
The recounted cases of clergy abuse here go back as far as the memories of the oldest living victims, gray-haired men still grappling with the emotional scars of childhood traumas repressed for decades. They

CHICAGO — The Chicago Bears‘ much-publicized kicker search got a boost from an unlikely on Thursday night.
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera, who played linebacker for the Bears from 1984 to 1992, admitted after Carolina’s 23-13 preseason victory at Soldier Field that he intentionally called a timeout before Chicago’s Elliott Fry attempted a 43-yard field goal to help his former team better evaluate the rookie kicker.
“You know what is funny, I did that to help the Bears because they are in a kicking contest,” Rivera said.
Bears coach Matt Nagy denied that he and Rivera were in cahoots, but nonetheless expressed gratitude.
“No, it wasn’t planned, but I’m kind of glad he did it,” Nagy said with a smile.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The Ohio doctor charged with 25 counts of murder has a new lawyer known for successfully defending high-profile clients such as Casey Anthony and Aaron Hernandez.
Florida-based lawyer Jose Baez identified himself as William Husel’s (HYOO’-suhlz) attorney in a court filing seeking to be part of the defense despite not practicing law in Ohio. A message seeking comment was left with Baez’s firm.
The Columbus-area Mount Carmel Health System found Husel ordered excessive painkiller doses for dozens of hospital patients who died over several years.
The now-fired doctor pleaded not guilty . Another defense attorney has said the 43-year-old physician was providing comfort care for dying patients, not trying to kill them.
Mount Carmel fired 23 more nurses, pharmacists and managers after its internal investigation, but they aren’t being criminally prosecuted.

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Almost 400 people more died in the Netherlands during Europe’s recent record-breaking heatwave than in a regular summer week, Dutch national statistics agency CBS said on Friday.
In total, 2964 people died in the Netherlands during the week that started on July 22, the CBS said, which was around 15% more than during an average week in the summertime.
Temperature records tumbled across Europe during late July’s heatwave, and for the first time since records began topped 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) in the Netherlands on July 25.
The death toll in the Netherlands during that week was comparable to the rate during two heatwaves in 2006, which were among the longest ever in the country, the researchers

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky priest is accused of inappropriately touching two teenage girls as they volunteered at a nonprofit.
News outlets report the Rev. David Glockner has since been removed from ministering at the Holy Redeemer Parish in Vanceburg. Catholic society of priests and brothers Glenmary Home Missioners says the 84-year-old Glockner was accused of touching the girls Tuesday as they volunteered in Vanceburg.
The president of Glenmary, the Rev. Dan Dorsey, says Glockner has been recalled to the group’s headquarters in Cincinnati “for an indefinite period of time.” Diocese of Covington spokeswoman Laura Keener says Glockner will remain there while the allegations are investigated by state police, who were notified Thursday. She says no other allegations of inappropriate behavior have been made against Glockner in his seven years with the parish.
