In the news Seafood giant to spend up to $23 million to fix pollution SEATTLE — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says one of the nation’s biggest seafood companies has agreed to spend up to $23 million to fix serious air pollution issues with its vessels and land-based facilities. Seattle-based Trident Seafoods will also pay a $900,000 fine for Clean Air Act violations under a settlement agreement filed Tuesday in federal court in Alaska. The company uses ozone-depleting coolants in its refrigerators. While the law requires any leaks to be fixed within 30 days, the government said Trident allowed some leaks to persist for years. The EPA said more than 200,000 pounds of harmful gases were released into the atmosphere. Trident agreed to retrofit or retire 23 refrigeration appliances, install leak detectors and promptly repair leaks. The settlement is subject to public comment and court approval. Trident did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Suspect says fatal Anchorage shooting followed argument ANCHORAGE — Charging documents in a fatal Anchorage hotel shooting say the event occurred after a confrontation over a debt. Anchorage television station KTVA reports 20-year-old Theandrea Luster is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the death Saturday of 40-year-old Javon Diggs, an employee of Barratt Inn. Police reviewed hotel surveillance video and arrested Luster on Sunday. Online court documents do not list his attorney. Luster told police he went to the hotel with his mother, sister and girlfriend to possibly stay there and his mother wanted to see Diggs because he owed her something. Luster said an argument broke out. Luster told police Diggs shoved his mother and Diggs aggressively reached into his “belt line,” so Luster pulled out his 9mm pistol and shot Diggs repeatedly.

Murkowski addresses Legislature Kenai to Senator critical of Trump’s emergency declaration, questions budget cuts By MOLLIE BARNES Juneau Empire

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, wants legislators to stand up for their role as the appropriators — both in Alaska and Washington, D.C. She said President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration on immigration at the border was worrisome in a press conference after her annual speech to Alaska’s Legislature on Tuesday. “I don’t like this,” Murkowski said. “I think it takes us down a road, with a precedent that if it’s allowed that we may come to regret. I’ll just remind my colleagues that in the previous administration we raised a lot of commotion over areas and initiatives that we felt the executive had overreached. Whether

On Tuesday, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District began their efforts to educate the public about their upcoming budget through a series of forums. The forums are a way for the public to understand the district’s budget in light of recently pro-

The Kenai City Council will consider mandatory court appearances for repeated violations of animal control ordinances, rather than just paying a fine. At Wednesday night’s meeting, the council will vote on an ordinance amending code to require that animal owners who violate control and treatment of animals ordinances three times within a 12-month period will have a mandatory arraignment before a judge. Currently, owners are just required to pay a fine. The ordinance states that requiring an animal owner to go to court and “address the owner’s control and

Soldotna woman finds obscene imagery, graffiti spray-painted on car By BRIAN MAZUREK Peninsula Clarion

When Soldotna resident Deirdre Coval walked out of her house Monday morning, she expected, like with any other day, to shovel some snow off her car before heading to work. Unfortunately, underneath the snow she discovered

obscene images spraypainted on the back of her car as well as the phrase “repubicans rule” painted on the side. Coval believes that this was not a random act of vandalism, but that she was possibly targeted for ideological reasons. Coval actively voices her opinions on the issues facing

the state and the nation via Facebook, and she speculated that her latest criticisms of Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget on the social media site were potentially what motivated the vandal to act. “When people allow their ego to take hold, attacks on ideas can be taken personally,” said Coval.

University president makes case against budget cuts University of Alaska President Jim Johnsen made a case against Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed budget cuts to the university, Tuesday, as the Senate Finance Committee continued to work its way through departmental budget presentations. The committee met twice actually, once with Office of Management and Budget staff in the morning, and Johnsen made his presentation later in the afternoon. “People vote with their feet,” Johnsen said on numerous occasions during his hourlong presentation, referring to people leaving Alaska, which they have done in recent years. John-

sen believes Dunleavy’s cuts would exacerbate the problem. He said history has shown that when staff

at the university are cut, “enrollment follows.” Johnsen said this would be bad for Alaska.

“I’m not here to negotiate,” Johnsen said. Johnsen said he was there to advocate for the Board of Regents’ budget requests. Dunleavy’s budget proposal would cut $134 million from its the UA system’s current budget and eliminate upward of 1,300 jobs. Johnsen said the University of Alaska Fairbanks is the world’s No. 1 Arctic research university and every dollar put into research at UAF provides a $6 return to the economy. He said there is no question Alaska would lose top researchers if these cuts are made because states such as Oregon and Washington are invest-

ing in research. To illustrate the magnitude of proposed cuts to the UA system, Johnsen explained some options for meeting demands of Dunleavy’s budget proposal: • Shuttering University of Alaska Southeast would save $25 million. • Closing every community campus would save $38 million. • Closing University of Alaska Anchorage would save $$120 million. UA could double its tuition to make up for the cut, though, Johnsen said. In the morning, OMB Policy Director Mike Barnhill told the committee that state appropriations to UA See OMB, page A2

LEWISTON, Maine — A Maine man charged with killing a woman 26 years ago in Alaska signaled his intention to contest extradition on Tuesday and said through a lawyer that he is innocent of the charges. Steven Downs, of Auburn, Maine, made his intentions known in the first court appearance since his Friday arrest. A judge ordered him held without bail pending another hearing scheduled for March 18. Alaska authorities charged Downs in the 1993 sexual assault and kill-

ANCHORAGE (AP) — Steep tariff hikes could be on the way at the Port of Alaska if the Municipality of Anchorage has to pay for repairs to the dock, a recent study says. An analysis, prepared by economic consulting firm Parrish, Blessing and Associates Inc., considers how much tariffs on refined petroleum products and cement would have to be raised to cover the cost of borrowing $200 million to pay for replacing the port’s petroleum and cement terminal, the Alaska Journal of Commerce re-

ported on Monday. The municipality will have to sell $200 million in revenue bonds in less than a year to stay on the construction schedule for the petroleum cement terminal, Municipal Manager Bill Falsey said. “I think we have to have some credible way to borrow approximately this amount of money by the year’s end or we can’t procure construction for 2020 so then we would be in a situation where we would have half constructed the petroleum cement terminal,” Falsey See PORT, page A3

leased his budget last week, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District could see reductions of $20 million — or the equivalent of 200 teaching positions. “Our annual budget is one of the most important things we do each year, and it’s more important than ever with the potential funding cuts we face,” Dave Jones, assistant superintendent of instructional support, said in the release. “We want to give our parents, staff, students, and community members a chance to learn about our budget, participate in the

process, and ask questions.” Superintendent Sean Dusek said it’s important to get community feedback on the district’s budget process. “Over the past several years the district has been able to gather valuable feedback and input through the budget development process,” Dusek said in the release. “This year will be especially important as we work to become more efficient while maintaining our priority of small class sizes. We look forward to community participation in the process, especially as the State and Borough deal

with economic issues that directly impact school funding.” Residents can attend a forum at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, Feb. 20 at Soldotna High School, on Thursday, Feb. 21 at Kenai Central High School and on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at Seward High School. At the Soldotna High budget forum, video conference will be available to residents near schools in Cooper Landing, Homer Flex, Hope School, Moose Pass, Nanwalek, Ninilchik, Port Graham, Sterling Elementary, Susan B. English, Tebughna and Tustamena Schools.

Sen. Bill Wielechowski, D-Anchorage, said he believes this report may be an unfair comparison. He floated a few ideas as to why it may be more expensive for Alaska to keep its universities running. Operating costs are higher because of remote locations in Alaska. Wielechowski said it’s a common practice for alumni and locals to give generous gifts to universities, and that practice is non-existent in Alaska. Johnsen responded to this issue later, saying schools like the University of Oregon, have alumni such as

Phil Knight, the founder of Nike, who can bankroll the college. “I would appreciate his interest in us, obviously,” Johnsen said. Sen. Peter Micciche, RSoldotna, asked the OMB team if the Dunleavy administration is willing to engage and figure out why Alaska is spending so much more money on its universities than other outside states in the Lower 48 spend on their own universities. OMB Director Donna Arduin says the administration is, and Barnhill’s research shows that.

At one point during the morning meeting, Sen. Bert Stedman, R-Sitka, told Barnhill to pick up the pace or the committee would be there “until August.” Steman’s dark humor elicited laughter from most in the room. At the end of the morning meeting when the OMB staff filed out of the room, Stedman said, “I see OMB cleared out, didn’t take long,” and then chuckled. The Senate Finance Committee will continue to receive budget presentations from the OMB the remainder of the week.

gotten as much what this administration can afford.” She praised the democratic system in place, and said that checks and balances were crucial to maintaining democracy. “Again, I don’t mean to be critical of President Trump with his (border security) priority,” she said. “I worry about expansion of executive authority by any president on any issue, even if it’s an issue that I am supportive of.” She pointed out that Congress holds the power to appropriate money, and that the legislative branch should have more power when it comes to budgets

than the executive branch. She compared the struggles Congress is facing with the budget to the one the Alaska Legislature also faces. “I think we need to remember that here in Alaska, we’ve got a Legislature that’s going to be dealing with some very difficult and very challenging issues,” she said. “But I think the Legislature needs to recognize its role and stand up to its role as the appropriators, as the legislative branch.” When asked about how the state budget affects federal funding, she said she does think that cutting state funding to Medicaid and other programs makes it harder

to secure federal funding for those same programs. Gov. Mike Dunleavy has proposed cutting funding to Medicaid, which would result in a loss of matched federal funding, as well. “The leveraging that we can get from federal dollars has been significant for our state,” she said. “So as you consider these decisions as to where to cut and how to cut and what to eliminate, there has to be that direct connect to what would that corresponding offset be on the federal side, and how will that impact us. Because it’s not just a decision that impacts just the state dollars.”

Charest called the charges “a very old allegation” and said Downs “thinks there must be some kind of mistake.” He said Downs will be represented by attorney Jim

Getting the facts on the upstream carbon impact of ANWR development By LIAM ZSOLT

On Monday, Feb. 11, I had the

privilege of watching democracy in action, right here in Anchorage. The draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve (ANWR) was released, and public comments were taken at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) furnished us with maps of the different development scenarios, impacts on the indigenous people and animal species, and a strong education on the process. Hats off to the agency for sitting through six straight hours of public comment by stakeholders from both inside as well as outside of the protected region, with a wide spectrum of coherence. Many of the comments were spot on, but many others diverged widely from the scope of the report. I was struck by a conspicuous lack of discourse on the specific threats that development poses to the Porcupine Caribou Herd, which is central to the controversy surrounding the development of ANWR. Despite its minimal appearance in the public comment period, the actual DEIS addressed this issue very well. However, opponents of the leasing program did not allow a lack of education on the issue to stand in the way of holding the microphone hostage. They used the airwaves to discuss many issues, one common thread being the potential greenhouse gas emissions. One activist was bold enough to implore the BLM to consider the carbon created during the end use of the hydrocarbons. Of course, had this activist read the DEIS, they would find that use-phase CO2 impacts were actually addressed very well. I thought it would be interesting to provide a bit of color and more technical detail around this hot subject. The draft report recognizes (correctly) that additional upstream hydrocarbon development does not have a one-for-one impact on oil and gas demand. Developing ANWR to its full potential will not actually add 390 thousand barrels per day to the world’s oil consumption. It will almost displace that much oil already on the market, and then add a fraction of that as a result of bringing the price down. Between the direct emissions generated by the development itself and the indirect emissions generated by the modest increase in global demand, the report ultimately arrives at the conclusion that ANWR development would increase global emissions by between 0.76 and 5.38 million metric tons of CO2 over the field life. This is 11 to 77 thousand metric tons per year, or about 0.5 kilograms per barrel produced. It’s hard to picture what this means in real life, so in context — the average barrel of North Slope crude oil produces 564 kilograms of CO2 throughout its life. Augmenting this by 0.5 kilograms for the barrels produced by the ANWR development is a 0.1 percent increase. If anything, the report was too fair. Alaska North Slope (ANS) crude is typically refined in California, meaning that ANWR development is likely to offset declining California barrels as a refinery feedstock. California, despite its green image, produces the dirtiest crude in the nation at 725 kilograms of CO2 per barrel2. With this in mind, we are likely offsetting dirtier crude with cleaner crude, should we develop ANWR. The reality is that the North Slope has a legacy of environmental responsibility that shines among the prolific oilfields in the world. This great corporate citizenship is not being left behind in the age of climate change. BP recently announced the purchase of 9.3 million

The un-democracy of Pebble Mine

With the draft EIS for the Pebble Mine set to be released this Friday, Feb. 22, we on the Kenai Peninsula have something to learn from the elders of the Gwich’in and Iñupiaq Tribes who are in an existential fight against oil and gas development in the calving grounds of the Porcupine Caribou Herd, which their people have depended on since time immemorial. Only recently, with the passage of a rider drafted by Sen. Murkowski on the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, did it become possible to develop the land in the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Native Alaskan Tribes have been fighting development of the coastal plain for 30 years, but, they have the distinct feeling that their point of view isn’t important to permitting agencies. Documents aren’t available in Inupiaq or Gwich’in; and at a recent meeting, BLM said that only one village was consulted during the drafting of the environmental impact statement. Over 200 people showed up in Fairbanks for the Bureau of Land Management’s first public meeting on the Draft EIS in early February. Because of the size and controversy of the project, the meeting did not allow for public testimony to be given; instead, very much like the Pebble Project meetings in Homer, scientists stood near posters explaining the environmental impact statement process and two court stenographers sat behind a curtain to take testimony. After a short BLM presentation, the crowd demanded public commenting time, calling out, “Bring out the stenographer! Bring out the stenographer!”

Alaska Native elders were given time to speak first, and testimonies filled the remaining time. Elder after elder stood up to say that this herd and this land is basic to their human rights and food security. BLM shut the lights off at 8 p.m., while Native attendees began singing a drum song: “We need an actual public hearing, we need BLM to do a better job!” After the events at the Fairbanks meeting, all the subsequent public meetings allowed for public testimony. You can see footage of testimonies of elders and tribal members on the Defend the Sacred AK Facebook page. The “public process” the Gwich’in are up against is very similar to what we are dealing with on the Pebble Mine. In both instances, permitting is being pushed through so quickly it defies common sense, let alone the rule of law. In the coastal plain, the draft EIS was completed in just five months; Pebble’s turn-around will be about a year. That’s how long it supposedly took agencies to study and assess all impacts to lands, waters, fish, wildlife and the people who depend on them. It is far from clear that the EIS process is being conducted in good faith, with adequate attention to public input and science. And it gets worse: permit applica-

metric tons of carbon offsets from Ahtna. My employer, ASRC Energy Services, has seen a strong trend of clients asking for greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction solutions. It’s an exciting time to be a part of a changing industry. The GHG impact of ANWR development pales in comparison with the potential in demand reduction. People who care about climate change should work to change their habits. Boeing 737s make an astonishing 11 metric tons of CO2 for a short 575-mile flight [European CORINAIR manual (2001)]. An electric vehicle can take 4.5 metric tons of CO2 per year out of the atmosphere. Tesla therefore sold enough cars in 2018 to solve the worstcase ANWR carbon emissions scenario eleven times over.

People can truly impact GHG emissions on the demand side, by changes in their everyday life. To conclude — carbon emissions may be the defining issue of the decade, but they are far from the most important issue related to ANWR development. We will continue to develop and produce oil on the North Slope with world-class corporate responsibility, and drive hard toward a low-carbon future. Proponents of ANWR leasing are open to constructive input on responsible development scenarios. This should be seen as an unprecedented opportunity to collaborate between industry, regional stakeholders, and concerned Americans to reach a plan that benefits everyone. People engaging in the process would be advised to learn more

tions are missing the most basic information needed to assess impacts. For example, consider that Pebble Limited Partnership’s application did not include plans singed off by an engineer for a dredged channel and dock proposed in Kamishak Bay in Cook Inlet, where winter storms often bring 100 mph winds, nor did it include a demonstration that the new smaller mine they are pushing would be economically viable. Similarly, the Coastal Plain EIS did no climate change assessment. All of this would seem to violate the laws that are supposed to guide these procedures and feels decidedly undemocratic. A recent review of all EISs from 2010 to 2017 by the Council on Environmental Quality found that the average EIS completion time was 4.5 years. No more. Acting Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt has issued a memo that arbitrarily limits EIS studies to no more than 150 pages and requires that they be completed in less than one year. Public notice is also going out the window. The people of Fairbanks were given only four days notice before their open house; notice came one day after the first hard copies of the draft EIS were released (there are now four hard copies of the Draft EIS available in the state). Comment periods for both Pebble and the Coastal Plain projects are about half of what they were before the current administration took power. Something’s going on here. The public is less relevant than ever. When Pebble comes to town, we need to stand up like the Gwich’in and Iñupiaq elders. Also, bring your lawyer.

about the issues, the proposal and the process itself. In this way, the discussion can be elevated and constructive outcomes achieved. I want to again thank the BLM for a great presentation, an excellent report (which was delivered through a government shutdown), and for great patience shown throughout these hearings. I hope the conversation in the future can remain focused on the relevant elements, such as the impact on coastal plain wildlife. Finally, I hope that the needs and wishes of the regional stakeholders are met, especially the Iñupiat people of the village of Kaktovik, as they have the greatest at stake.

Flynn pushed to share nuclear tech with Saudis By CHAD DAY Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Senior White House officials pushed a project to share nuclear power technology with Saudi Arabia despite the objections of ethics and national security officials, according to a new congressional report citing whistleblowers within the Trump administration. Lawmakers from both parties have expressed concerns that Saudi Arabia could develop nuclear weapons if the U.S. technology were transferred without proper safeguards. The Democratic-led House oversight committee opened an investigation Tuesday into the claims by several unnamed whistleblowers who said they witnessed “abnormal acts” in the White House regarding the proposal to build dozens of nuclear reactors across the Middle Eastern kingdom. The report raises concerns about whether some in a White House marked by “chaos, dysfunction and backbiting” sought to cir-

cumvent national security procedures to push a Saudi deal that could financially benefit close supporters of the president. The report comes at a time when lawmakers are increasingly uneasy with the close relationship between the Trump administration and Saudi Arabia, which has raised alarms even among members of the president’s party in Congress. Trump has made the kingdom a centerpiece of his foreign policy in the Middle East as he tries to further isolate Iran. In the process, he has brushed off criticism over the killing of Washing-

ton Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi and the Saudis’ role in the war in Yemen. At the same time, Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is developing a Middle East peace plan that could include economic proposals for Saudi Arabia. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. According to the report, the nuclear effort was pushed by former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was fired in early 2017. Derek Harvey, a National Security Council official brought in by Flynn,

continued work on the proposal, which has remained under consideration by the Trump administration. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, announced the investigation Tuesday. Relying on the whistleblower accounts, email communications and other documents , the committee’s report details how NSC and ethics officials repeatedly warned that the actions of Flynn and a senior aide could run afoul of federal conflicts of interest law and statutes governing the transfer of nuclear technology to foreign powers. Flynn is awaiting sentencing for lying to the FBI in the Russia investigation. On Tuesday, a person close to Flynn’s legal team said that Russia special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has reviewed the matters raised in the congressional report and no charges related to it have been filed. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly discuss the ongoing

Georgia voting problems highlighted in congressional hearing

ATLANTA — Strict voter registration requirements, polling place confusion and other obstacles Georgia voters faced in 2018 show why federal oversight of elections is still needed in places with a history of discrimination, said several people who testified Tuesday during a congressional field hearing.

Democrat Stacey Abrams, who lost her bid for governor last fall, told members of a House subcommittee about myriad issues that she says disenfranchised certain Georgia voters in last year’s midterm election. “Across the state, voters faced obstacles that shook their confidence in the electoral process,” Abrams said at the hearing in Atlanta. In her testimony, Abrams said existing laws are not

enough to protect voters and that more oversight is needed of state and local election officials. “The challenge (now) is that you have to have someone disenfranchised before you can fight to make certain that someone else isn’t disenfranchised,” Abrams said. “But that means that someone lost their right to vote.” Rep. Marcia Fudge of Ohio, who chairs the House subcommittee, said Democrats are gathering evidence of voter irregularities and suppression. The Georgia hearing was the second of several field hearings planned around the country. Their goal is legislation that would restore key sections of the Voting Rights Act that once required election officials in all or parts of 14 states to receive federal approval before making changes to the voting process. A 2013 U.S. Supreme Court decision tossed out the provision used to determine which jurisdictions

needed federal oversight of elections. But it left open the possibility that Congress could take legislative action to update this process. “What the courts said to us is that that they could not continue to enforce Section 4 (of the Voting Rights Act) because they did not have a contemporaneous record,” Fudge said after the hearing. “We are doing these hearings to create a contemporaneous record so that we can go back to them and say, ‘Not only did we have these problems in 1968, but we had these problems in 2018.’” The lone Republican on the subcommittee, Rep. Rodney Davis of Illinois, did not attend Tuesday’s hearing. As a result, Republicans did not call any witnesses to testify.

Around the World Judge orders Roger Stone to court over Instagram post WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Tuesday ordered Roger Stone to appear in court to consider whether to revoke his bail after the longtime Donald Trump confidant posted a photo on Instagram of the judge with what appeared to be crosshairs of a gun. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Stone must show for a hearing Thursday afternoon and prove why she shouldn’t modify or revoke his bail or implement a full gag order in his case. On Monday, Stone posted a photo of Jackson with what appeared to be crosshairs near her head. Later in the day, Stone and his attorneys filed a notice with the court that they recognized the “photograph and comment today was improper and should not have been posted.” Stone said that the photo was “misinterpreted” and that it was “a random photo taken from the Internet.” He dismissed any suggestion that he was trying to threaten the judge as “categorically false.” The political operative and self-described dirty trickster has pleaded not guilty to charges he lied to Congress, engaged in witness tampering and obstructed a congressional investigation into possible coordination between Russia and Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The charges stem from conversations he had during the 2016 election about WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group that released material stolen from Democratic groups, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Stone was arrested last month and is the sixth Trump aide or adviser charged in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. He’s currently free on a $250,000 personal recognizance bond.

Payless files for bankruptcy, closing North American stores NEW YORK — Payless ShoeSource has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and is shuttering its remaining stores in North America. The filing on Monday came a day after the shoe chain began holding going-out-of-business sales at its North American stores. The company, based in Topeka, Kansas, updated the number of stores it is closing to 2,500, up from the 2,100 it cited on Friday when it confirmed it was planning to liquidate its business. It reiterated that stores will remain open until at least the end of March and the majority will remain open until May. The liquidation doesn’t affect its franchise operations or its Latin American stores, which remain open for business as usual, it said. The debt-burdened chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection a first time in April 2017, closing hundreds of stores as part of its reorganization. “The challenges facing retailers today are well documented, and unfortunately, Payless emerged from its prior reorganization ill-equipped to survive in today’s retail environment,” said Stephen Marotta, Payless ShoeSource’s chief restructuring officer. He noted that the prior Chapter 11 proceedings left the company with too much debt and with too many stores. —The Associated Press

Dropping the connection February 10-17, 2019 Our days run together this time of year, like a lot of your days I am sure. I had troubles with my internet and so for three days I was out of contact with the other world! In the wintertime in North Nikiski, it is a big void in my life. My life came back together with the internet back in order. The next day the other lifeline, my pal, my phone — the link to the outer world — accidentally flew out of my vest pocket and into the toilet. It dunked in and I grabbed it out in a matter of seconds. That was just long enough to soak everything. My phone had drowned. Yes, I had lots of helping comments and the main idea — putting it in a rice sack — did not do its magic. So I was without my phone for four days until our friend Kelly Cooper at Glacier View Cabins in Homer came to the rescue and left a phone in Soldtona for us to retrieve. Daughter Susan drove me to Soldotna and to the phone company for them to restore my data. That took all day. Susan spent many hours getting my first phone set up and then had to do that again!! Actually I think this is the third time she has done this!! She took a whole day and drove me around and got me set up again. I am back in business again and in touch with my friends and relatives. My world is round again! What did people do without phones (and computers)? How did they function? Letters! When I first came to Alaska we did not have phones. I wrote long letters to my family every week. It is a lost art I am sure! The homesteaders of Alaska must have loved their way of life as they were at times snowed in for months. And if you were lonesome you went to visit. Another lost art! Bob and I do not mind being snowbound, but some people do and they are on the antsy side until they can continue with the daily routine.

Espinacas is a traditional tapas dish found in the southern Spanish region of Andalucia consisting of tender stewed chickpeas, delicate wilted spinach, and bold North African-influenced spices. We set out to develop an adaptation of this dish that could work as part of a larger meal. For the flavour backbone, we stuck with the classic southern Spanish flavours of saffron, garlic, smoked paprika, and cumin. Tasters also liked the traditional addition of chorizo, which added meaty richness. Curly-leaf spinach was the best choice for its sturdy texture in this brothy dish. To keep the recipe streamlined, we opted to wilt the spinach and then set it aside before building the brothy base with canned chickpeas and aromatics. Including the chickpeas’ flavourful, starchy canning

liquid helped to give the dish more body. Finally, we added a traditional picada, which is often used in Spanish cooking as a thickener. The bread crumb-based mixture gave the stewed beans and greens just the right velvety texture and flavour boost. Our finished dish would be equally at home as part of a tapas spread or served as an entree over rice or with good crusty bread to sop up the flavourful broth. If you can’t find curlyleaf spinach, you can substitute flat-leaf spinach do not substitute baby spinach. For an accurate measurement of boiling water, bring a full kettle of water to a boil and then measure out the desired amount.

CHICKPEAS WITH SPINACH, CHORIZO AND SMOKED PAPRIKA Servings: 4-6 Start to finish: 30 minutes Pinch saffron threads,

crumbled 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 8 ounces curly-leaf spinach, stemmed 3 ounces Spanish-style chorizo sausage, chopped fine 5 garlic cloves, sliced thin 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 1 teaspoon ground cumin Salt and pepper 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas 1 recipe Picada (recipe follows) 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar Combine 2 tablespoons boiling water and saffron in small bowl and let steep for 5 minutes. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in Dutch oven over medium heat until shimmering. Add spinach and 2 tablespoons water, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until spinach is wilted but still bright green, about 1 minute. Transfer spinach to colander and gently press to release liquid.

Transfer spinach to cutting board and chop coarse. Return to colander and press again. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in now-empty pot over medium heat until shimmering. Add chorizo and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, paprika, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in chickpeas and their liquid, 1 cup water, and saffron mixture and bring to simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chickpeas are tender and liquid has thickened slightly, 10 to 15 minutes. Off heat, stir in picada, spinach, and vinegar and let sit until heated through, about 2 minutes. Adjust sauce consistency with hot water as needed. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve. Picada: Makes about 1 cup Chopped or whole unsalted almonds can be substituted for the slivered almonds however, they may

require longer processing times. 1/4 cup slivered almonds 2 slices hearty white sandwich bread, torn into quarters 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/8 teaspoon salt Pinch pepper Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 F. Pulse almonds in food processor to fine crumbs, about 20 pulses. Add bread, oil, salt, and pepper and pulse bread to coarse crumbs, about 10 pulses. Spread mixture evenly in rimmed baking sheet and bake, stirring often, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. (Picada can be stored in airtight container for up to 2 days.) ——— Nutrition information per serving: 391 calories 228 calories from fat 25 g fat (4 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 12 mg cholesterol 723 mg sodium 29 g carbohydrate 8 g fiber 5 g sugar 13 g protein.

Turning chicken soup into a comforting, nutrient-dense meal By America’s Test Kitchen The Associated Press

There’s nothing like a bowl of steaming chicken soup when you’re feeling under the weather, or even simply when fall turns to winter. But we wanted to transform this soup, often made with white rice or pasta and lacking in veggies, into a comforting, nutrient-dense meal. We started by infusing our chicken broth with a megadose of garlic, before adding tender morsels of chicken. We tested our way through increasing amounts of garlic, starting with what we thought was a hefty amount—2 tablespoons. Much to our surprise and satisfaction, tasters rallied behind a whopping half cup of minced garlic, praising its bright yet balanced presence in our full-flavoured soup. Mincing and blooming the garlic before adding liquid gave it a toasty sweetness without having to roast it. To build flavour,

we added aromatic vegetables, thyme, bay leaves, and tomato paste along with our chicken broth. To incorporate a whole grain, we opted for toothsome wild rice, cooking it directly in the soup to infuse it with garlicky flavour. To keep our chicken tender, we simmered it during the last few minutes of cooking. Baby spinach and a generous amount of chopped parsley gave the soup a vegetal boost that complemented the deep garlic notes.

GARLIC-CHICKEN AND WILD RICE SOUP Servings: 6 Start to finish: 1 hour, 15 minutes 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 cup minced garlic (about 25 cloves) 2 carrots, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick 1 onion, chopped fine 1 celery rib, minced Salt and pepper

2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried 1 teaspoon no-salt-added tomato paste 6 cups unsalted chicken broth 2 bay leaves 2/3 cup wild rice, rinsed 8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of all visible fat and cut into 3/4 inch pieces 3 ounces (3 cups) baby spinach 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley Heat oil and garlic in Dutch oven over mediumlow heat, stirring occasionally, until garlic is light golden and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium and add carrots, onion, celery, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened and lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in thyme and tomato paste and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in broth and bay leaves, scraping up any browned bits. Stir in rice and bring to

simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 40 to 50 minutes. Discard bay leaves. Reduce heat to low and stir in chicken and spinach. Cook,

stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and spinach is wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Off heat, stir in parsley and season with pepper to taste. Serve. ———

. . . Annie

This current snowstorm we are having in North Nikiski brings us back Continued from page A6 to the year in 1989 when we were snowed in for days. Bob read Robert Service and all the Patrick McManus stories to me. We played Kings Corner, put puzzles together and did cross word puzzles. We always had a stock of canned food in supply. And we were always warm beside the woodstove! We walked in and out through the hip-deep snow with laundry and groceries. We had a woodstove and were soon warm and toasty. Our lights were oil lanterns and we had a battery-operated radio. Oh, those were to good ol’ days … Well I am grateful for the snow plow and the battery-operated lanterns and we still have a woodstove in case the electricity goes out. I am sure we all get a little dingy in this long winter, snowy Alaska, so when I was talking to my friend Cathy on the phone I spent about five minutes looking for it!! I looked all over the house; I checked my pockets in my coat. My next step was to go out to my sewing room which is separate from the house. I reached for the door knob when I discovered I had the phone in my hand up to my ear talking to Cathy!! I blame it on the long winters!! We have a friend who told us she looked all over her house for her phone, with the light on her phone in her hand!! Ever lost your phone and had no way to call your phone to see where you parked it? Anyway, I actually could not do without my phone as I use it for emails and texts and photos and, of course, talking to my relatives and friends. I am forever grateful to Susan for her courage to teach me NEW things and never give up ‘till I learn them. And reteaching me when I forgot… While I am telling on myself, I need to add the big mystery Bob put us in a few mornings ago. He came out of the bathroom and said, “Can’t find my teeth.” That was a big alarm to me because he has had his bottom teeth for three days and we had just paid them off! No, he said I have those — I can’t find my uppers. I looked on the table, under the table, and in every nook and cranny. He looked in his pockets. If we would have had a dog we would have blamed him! Well, he said they must be in the cave/shop, put his clothes on and was slipping into his shoes when he turned around and pointed at his mouth. YUP! He had them in his mouth the whole time!! We laughed so hard we both had tears running down our face. It is still funny! Of course, there are a million stories about lost glasses — found perched on top of the head. I have to tell this one on our Dad. He came storming out of the bedroom … with his elbows out and said to Mom, “Loretta how many time have I told you to buy your own glasses — I am tired of looking for mine when you have them.” Mom looked up and in total surprise saw Dad’s glasses perched on top of his head. She said, “John they are on your head.” Dad quickly turned around and marched back down the hall — he never ever said a word about his glasses after that. Oh, then there was the mystery of the varnishing salt and pepper shakers. I found then later behind the bread in the refrigerator. I have no idea how they got there because I do not remember doing it. I am sure someone else put them there. I hope you find fun and a little laughter each day.

Retool the classic pound cake to make it ultra-chocolatey By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

We love pound cake and we love chocolate, but the combination is often a disappointment. That’s because most recipes simply add chocolate to a standard pound cake recipe, which mars its finely tuned texture and usually produces lacklustre chocolate flavour. We wanted to retool classic pound cake to make it ultra-chocolatey without compromising its hallmark velvety-soft crumb. For deep chocolate flavour we used mostly Dutch-processed cocoa powder, which incorporated seamlessly into the batter a couple ounces of milk chocolate added richness without interfering with the cake’s texture. We bloomed both the cocoa and the bar chocolate in hot water to maximize their impact. For an accurate measurement of boiling water, bring a full kettle of water to a boil and then measure out the desired amount. The test kitchen’s preferred loaf pan measures 8 1/2-by-4 1/2 inches if you use a 9-by 5-inch loaf pan, start checking for doneness 5 minutes early.

CHOCOLATE POUND CAKE Servings: 8 Start to finish: 1 hour, 45 minutes 1 cup (5 ounces) allpurpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup (2 1/4 ounces) Dutch-processed cocoa powder 2 ounces milk chocolate, chopped fine 1/3 cup boiling water 16 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 16 pieces and softened 1 cup (7 ounces) granulated sugar 1/4 cup packed (1

3/4 ounces) light brown sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 5 large eggs, room temperature Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 325 F. Grease and flour 8 1/2by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan. Whisk flour and salt together in bowl. Place cocoa and chocolate in bowl. Pour boiling water over cocoa mixture and stir until chocolate is melted and no dry streaks of cocoa remain. Let mixture cool for 5 minutes. Using stand mixer fitted with paddle, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and cocoa mixture on medium-high speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture in 3 additions, scraping down bowl as needed, until just combined (batter may look slightly curdled). Give batter final stir by hand. Transfer batter to prepared pan and gently tap pan on counter to release air bubbles. Bake until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean, 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, rotating pan halfway through baking. Let cake cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan and let cool completely on rack, about 2 hours. Serve.

Serve large portions in a dish and see the smiles.

A Thai-style red curry that highlights lentils and tofu By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Thai curries embrace a delicate balance of flavours, textures, temperatures, and colours to produce lively, satisfying meals. Though fresh tasting (thanks to potent herbs and aromatics), restaurant renditions can be high in saturated fat due to hefty amounts of coconut milk, especially when made with red meat. We wanted to create a Thai-style red curry that wasn’t swimming in coconut milk and featured fiber-rich lentils and tofu instead. We started by cooking the lentils in an aromatic red curry broth. When the lentils were tender but still slightly al dente and had absorbed most of the liquid, we incorporated a bit of coconut milk to create a rich, fragrant sauce. To contrast the nutty earthiness of the lentils, we added vibrant red bell pepper slices, snow peas, and cubes of tofu at the very end, simply warming them through to maintain the vegetables’ colour and crisp-fresh texture. A generous handful of fresh basil and a sprinkle of scallions gave the dish a brisk, heady finish. Lentilles du Puy, also called

French green lentils, are our first choice, but brown, black, or regular green lentils are fine, too (cooking times will vary). Do not use light coconut milk. You will need a 12-inch skillet with a tight-fitting lid.

THAI RED CURRY WITH LENTILS AND TOFU Servings: 4 Start to finish: 1 hour 14 ounces extra-firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch pieces Salt and pepper 1 tablespoon expellerpressed canola oil 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste 2 1/2 cups water 2 tablespoons fish sauce 1 cup French green lentils, picked over and rinsed 1/2 cup canned coconut milk 1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch strips 4 ounces snow peas, strings removed and halved crosswise 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil 1 tablespoon lime juice 2 scallions, sliced thin Spread tofu on paper towel-lined baking sheet and let drain for 20 minutes. Gently press dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.

ters, helping the Kards seal the victory. “(It’s about) playing good D and spacing,” Trujillo said. “Cutting to get open, being patient.” Kenai jumped to 5-1 in conference play and 12-8 overall. Nikiski dropped to 4-3 and 6-12. In a Feb. 1 meeting in Nikiski, the Kardinals escaped with a conference win when senior Connor Felchle drained a triple with less than a second left to keep from going to overtime. This time around, the Kards rallied from a slow start to avoid that scenario. “Our boys came out in the second half, I made it a point of emphasis coming out of the locker room” said Kenai head coach Ken Felchle. “The first two minutes are incredibly important to hold yourself accountable.” Nikiski, which was playing without junior starter Noah Litke, got 19 points from senior Jace Kornstad and 15 from junior Michael Mysing, but struggled to keep up down the stretch after a tight opening half that saw the Bulldogs grab an 18-9 lead at one point. Felchle said Trujillo’s contributions Tuesday in the second half made a big mark on the game. “He’s our main scorer,” Felchle said. “When he goes, we go.” As the seconds ticked down in the first quarter,

however, it was Nikiski holding a near-double digit lead as Michael Mysing and Kornstad led the Bulldogs. A corner 3 by Mysing with 59 seconds to go in the quarter put the visitors up 18-9. “Nikiski comes out hard every time you play them,” Felchle said. “They come to play every night and they’re just a good team. Wellcoached and their energy level is up. It’s just a testament to them.” Trujillo answered Mysing’s triple with one of his own before the opening period ran out, then popped in another trey midway through the second quarter and a jumper late in the first half to help Kenai take the lead at halftime 31-28. Bezdecny received the second half inbounds pass and buried a trey just three seconds into the third quarter, giving Kenai an immediate spark. Nikiski trailed 33-30 in the early minutes of the second half, but a trey by Trujillo helped spark a Kardinals surge that pushed the lead to 44-35 at the end of the third, then to 52-38 with 5:51 left in the game. Felchle and Trujillo both helped put the game away with consecutive drives to the rim with 2:38 and 1:31 to go, respectively. Nikiski girls 51, Kenai 45 The Bulldogs pushed their season tally against their new conference opponents to 3-1 Tuesday night with a big conference win. Bethany Carstens enjoyed a 27-point outing to

lead Nikiski, which improved to 7-0 in Southcentral Conference play and 18-2 overall. Kenai dropped to 4-2 and 14-7. With another stellar showing to her credit, the senior Carstens said she was glad to escape with a victory over the Kardinals on Cliff Massie Court. “We’ve always played them weird here,” Carstens said. “They have tough defense, Brooke (Satathite) has those long arms, she’s hard to get around.” Satathite pumped in 12 points for Kenai, which was led by Jaycie Calvert’s 20 points. Calvert hit five 3-pointers in the first three quarters of play, but was held scoreless in the fourth before fouling out. Teammate Liz Hanson also fouled out. Kenai defeated Nikiski in a Jan. 4 meeting at the ACS Pepsi Invitational, prevailing 42-41. That win came weeks after a 50-28 drubbing from the Bulldogs at the Kards’ home tournament, and Nikiski head coach Rustin Hitchcock believes the loss to Kenai gave the Kards all the motivation they needed to believe in themselves. “I think part of the early season success against us … that gave them the knowledge that they could hang with us a bit,” Hitchcock said. “We struggled with that (Tuesday), because they came out with energy and sometimes made us look silly.” Kenai jumped out to a 13-9 lead in the first quarter Tuesday, then used a late

spurt to take a 28-24 halftime advantage. A triple by Calvert two minutes into the third quarter pushed the Kardinals lead to 31-26, but from there the Bulldogs began fighting back. Carstens connected on consecutive 3s to answer Calvert, giving Nikiski a 32-31 lead with 4:59 left in the third quarter, then rolled in a layup for an 8-0 run by herself. Carstens answered a Calvert trey with 27 seconds left in the quarter with one of her own just 13 seconds later, putting Nikiski ahead 42-36 with one quarter to play. Hitchcock said that once Nikiski’s man defense scheme began wearing down Kenai’s penetrative attack, the Bulldogs were able to shut down the points. “Once we started getting easy baskets and they started getting hard baskets, that’s when it shifted,” he said. “It’s not very technical or sciency.” Kenai ended with just nine points in the final eight minutes of action, and a 3-pointer from Lillian Carstens with 1:42 left essentially iced the victory. Ninilchik boys 57, Nanwalek 44 The host Wolverines buried 12 3-pointers en route to a Peninsula Conference victory over the Eagles on Tuesday. Nanwalek led 23-21 at halftime, but Ninilchik was able to steadily pull away after that.

Garrett Koch poured in 24 points for the Wolverines, including four 3-pointers, while George Nelson had six treys for 18 points. For Nanwalek, Ben Botero led the way with 22 points, while Malachi Joseph pitched in 11. Soldotna JV girls 29, CIA 23 The host Stars JV had a big fourth quarter to notch a nonconference win over the Eagles on Tuesday. The Stars led 9-6 after the first quarter and 15-13 at halftime. Cook Inlet Academy tied the game at 17 heading into the final quarter, but SoHi won that 12-6. Morgan Bouschor had nine points to lead Sohi. For CIA, Adara Warren dumped in 10 points. Soldotna JV boys 58, CIA 21 The host Stars JV notched a nonconference victory Tuesday. Levi Rosin had 21 for Soldotna’s JV, while Josh Pieh had 16 and Jeff Bouschor had 15. For Cook Inlet Academy, Hunter Moos led the way with six points.

Machado goes to Padres for 10 years, $300 million SAN DIEGO (AP) — With their city’s long-suffering fans desperate for a winner, the rebuilding San Diego Padres delivered their splashiest free agent signing ever by agreeing with All-Star infielder Manny Machado on a $300 million, 10-year deal. A person familiar with the negotiations confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on Tuesday, speaking on condition of

Kentucky gets past Missouri By The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Mo. — PJ Washington and Tyler Herro scored 18 points each as fourth-ranked Kentucky slogged past Missouri 6658 on Tuesday night. Ashton Hagans added 12 points for the Wildcats (22-4, 11-2 Southeastern Conference), who looked a little sluggish three days after beating then top-ranked Tennessee. But Kentucky was good enough defensively to hold the Tigers to 37 percent shooting from the field. No. 5 TENNESSEE 58, VANDERBILT 46 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Grant Williams had 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Tennessee beat Vanderbilt in the Volunteers’ first game since losing their No. 1 ranking. Tennessee (24-2, 12-1 Southeastern Conference) bounced back from its first loss since Thanksgiving week, an 86-69 defeat at No. 4 Kentucky on Saturday to snap a school-record 19-game winning streak.

No. 15 PURDUE 48, INDIANA 46 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Matt Haarms tipped in a basket with 3.2 seconds remaining to lift Purdue over Indiana. Ryan Cline had 11 points, and Haarms finished with six for the Boilermakers (19-7, 12-3 Big Ten), who have won three straight at Assembly Hall for the

first time in school history.

No. 16 FLORIDA STATE 77, CLEMSON 64 CLEMSON, S.C. — Mfiondu Kabengele had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Florida State set a program record with its eighth consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference victory in a win over Clemson.

BAYLOR 73, No. 19 IOWA STATE 69 AMES, Iowa — Jared Butler scored 17 points, Freddie Gillespie had 14 and Baylor upset Iowa State.

No. 24 MARYLAND 66, No. 21 IOWA 65 IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Bruno Fernando scored 11 points, including the last two on a putback with 7.8 seconds left, to lift Maryland to a win over Iowa.

No. 25 BUFFALO 114, OHIO 67 AMHERST, N.Y. — Jayvon Graves scored a career-high 26 points and Buffalo used a recordsetting shooting performance to cruise to a win over Ohio for its 23rd straight home win. CJ Massinburg (23 points), Jeenathan Williams (13 points, eight rebounds) Montell McRae (11 points, seven rebounds) and Graves led the way for the Bulls, who set school records for 3-pointers made (19) and point scored against a Division I opponent.

be the highest deal for a free agent, topping Alex Rodriguez’s $275 million, 10-year contract with the New York Yankees from 2008-17. More records may be broken soon. Free agent outfielder Bryce Harper could top Stanton’s deal in coming days or weeks. That won’t matter a bit to Padres fans, who have never celebrated a World Series title and were keeping their fingers crossed

the process of stripping USA Gymnastics of its status as the national governing body. One of the U.S. Olympic movement’s marquee programs was rudderless and fighting for its survival. “I was frankly very, very disappointed in terms of where the sport and the organization had gotten to,”

in recent days as it became apparent that their team, with a mostly sad-sack history stretching back a half-century, actually had a chance at landing Machado, who is only 26. Some fans seemed braced for yet another disappointment. But news of the deal was greeted with euphoria on social media. Speaking at spring training in Peoria, Arizona, Padres executive

Leung said. So disappointed that she felt compelled to come home. USA Gymnastics hired Leung as its new president and chief executive officer on Tuesday, a job she accepted in an effort to help the organization and the sport find a way forward.

chairman Ron Fowler declined to confirm the deal, saying: “We do not have a deal with any free agent player. We are continuing discussions, and that’s all we have to say.” Teams draw a distinction between an agreement subject to a physical and a finalized deal. While Fowler looked serious, general partner Peter Seidler couldn’t help but smile while waiting for his turn to speak.

Today in History Today is Wednesday, Feb. 20, the 51st day of 2019. There are 314 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 20, 2003, a fire sparked by pyrotechnics broke out during a concert by the group Great White at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island, killing 100 people and injuring about 200 others. On this date: In 1792, President George Washington signed an act creating the United States Post Office Department. In 1862, William Wallace Lincoln, the 11-year-old son of President Abraham Lincoln and first lady Mary Todd Lincoln, died at the White House, apparently of typhoid fever. In 1905, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Jacobson v. Massachusetts, upheld, 7-2, compulsory vaccination laws intended to protect the public’s health. In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt signed an immigration act which excluded “idiots, imbeciles, feebleminded persons, epileptics, insane persons” from being admitted to the United States. In 1938, Anthony Eden resigned as British foreign secretary following Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s decision to negotiate with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. In 1942, Lt. Edward “Butch” O’Hare became the U.S. Navy’s first flying ace of World War II by shooting down five Japanese bombers while defending the aircraft carrier USS Lexington in the South Pacific. In 1950, the U.S. Supreme Court, in United States v. Rabinowitz, ruled 5-3 that authorities making a lawful arrest did not need a warrant to search and seize evidence in an area that was in the “immediate and complete control” of the suspect. In 1962, astronaut John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth as he flew aboard Project Mercury’s Friendship 7 spacecraft, which circled the globe three times in a flight lasting 4 hours, 55 minutes and 23 seconds before splashing down safely in the Atlantic Ocean 800 miles southeast of Bermuda. In 1965, America’s Ranger 8 spacecraft crashed on the moon, as planned, after sending back thousands of pictures of the lunar surface. In 1971, the National Emergency Warning Center in Colorado erroneously ordered U.S. radio and TV stations off the air; some stations heeded the alert, which was not lifted for about 40 minutes. In 1987, a bomb left by Unabomber Ted Kaczynski exploded behind a computer store in Salt Lake City, seriously injuring store owner Gary Wright. Soviet authorities released Jewish activist Josef Begun. In 1999, movie reviewer Gene Siskel died at a hospital outside Chicago at age 53. Ten years ago: President Barack Obama warned a gathering of mayors at the White House that he would “call them out” if they wasted the money from his massive economic stimulus plan. The Dow Jones industrial average ended the week at 7,365.67, the lowest level in more than six years. Israeli President Shimon Peres chose Benjamin Netanyahu to form a new government. The WTA fined Dubai Tennis Championships organizers a record $300,000 after Israeli player Shahar Peer was denied a visa by the United Arab Emirates. Five years ago: Protesters advanced on police lines in the heart of the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, prompting government snipers to shoot and kill scores of people. In Sochi, Canada beat the U.S. 3-2 in overtime to win its 4th straight Olympic women’s hockey gold. Adelina Sotnikova became Russia’s first gold medalist in women’s Olympic figure skating, defeating defending champion Yuna Kim of South Korea. One year ago: Students who survived the Florida school shooting traveled to Tallahassee to urge state lawmakers to prevent another massacre, but procedural moves in the legislature effectively halted any effort to ban assault-style rifles like the one used in the attack. President Donald Trump directed the Justice Department to move to ban devices like the rapid-fire bump stocks used in the Las Vegas massacre. Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir became the most decorated figure skaters in history, capturing the gold medal in ice dancing on Day 11 of the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Grandma is collateral damage in man’s war with mother right mind, therefore you shouldn’t be punished or held responsible for any gibberish that came out of your mouth during that period, and (2) it is wrong to punish Granny in such a heartless fashion for something that has nothing to do with her. Perhaps they will Abigail Van Buren be able to get through to him where you cannot. DEAR ABBY: My husband is a successful man. He is charming in public, but at heart he’s a very private person. I was successful in my field, and I’m more outgoing. He is proud to show me off at parties because people find me interesting and witty, but without fail, at the end of the night he will tell me that somewhere during the evening I “crossed the line.” Perhaps I spent too much time talking with another man, or said something he found inappropriate. If I look the wrong way, he accuses me of flirting with someone. Invariably I get a lecture on the way home or the next morning. I told him this morning that I hate to go out with other people now because of it. He took

great offense at that and said, “You are not the VICTIM here. You are the PERPETRATOR.” Sometimes I do say things that come out wrong, but I don’t mean them. It would kill me to know that I hurt someone with my words. I am not interested in any other man. I love my husband. What can I do? -- LIFE OF THE PARTY IN VIRGINIA DEAR LIFE: Not knowing either of you, I cannot determine if your husband is extremely controlling, jealous and insecure, or whether you are doing something out of line. You and your husband could benefit from discussing this with a licensed marriage and family therapist. If he refuses to go -- and he may -- you should go without him. If your behavior at these gatherings was really unacceptable or an embarrassment, he would not want to “show you off at parties.” You shouldn’t have to worry that you’ll be lectured the next day for just being yourself. Something is definitely wrong here, and I don’t think it’s with you. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Hints from Heloise

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019: This year, you often will jump from one interest to another. You have the ability to see both sides of a disagreement, which can create confusion. If single, you meet people with ease, but you can be very fussy about relating. Accept people as they are. If attached, the two of you interact like a seesaw, changing your stances. You frequently echo each other’s views. VIRGO fusses over details. Your concerns are the big picture. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You wake up feeling confused.

Refuse to push as hard as you have. A partner will happily fill in and be more proactive. Tonight: Lighten up the moment. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You might be most comfortable close to home. If you can work from home, do so. A partner you might be involved with holds the keys to greater financial success, at least for now. This person can make a great impact on your life. Tonight: Put up your feet and relax. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Communicate what is on your mind. You will make quite a difference in a discussion or negotiation. Confusion weaves its way through your afternoon. Clarify; ask questions. Tonight: Return calls and make plans to meet friends. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Do not allow a possessive facet of your personality to emerge. You have no reason to feel insecure. You could have misread a friend’s comment or attitude.

ONION SALT HARDENS Dear Heloise: I have a problem: I bought a jar of onion salt, used it a few times and then it hardened. How do I avoid this situation? Your column appears in the Antelope Valley (Calif.) Press, and I read it faithfully! -- Christine F., Lancaster, Calif. Christine, the next time you buy onion salt or garlic powder, consider placing a few kernels of rice in the container, and make sure the cap is on very tight. This may eliminate the moisture and prevent clumping. -- Heloise STOP THAT ROLL! Dear Heloise: I was going to wrap a pie with plastic wrap when the roll suddenly came out of the box after I pulled, and it fell to the floor. I told my son that the plastic wrap and foil both come out when I try to use them. My son showed me two cutouts on the ends of the boxes. You push them in, and they hold the roll in the box while you unroll the product. I wonder how many of your readers are unaware of this also. I thought it might be worthwhile passing it on. -- Jim J., Girard, Pa. GRANDMOTHER’S METHOD Dear Heloise: I remember my grandmother’s method of boiling eggs. She’d bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and, with a slotted spoon, gently and slowly immerse eggs, one at a time. She’d boil the eggs for 15 minutes (for hard-boiled eggs), then remove them from the pan of hot water and place them in cold tap water. She never had a messy egg. -- Bettie B. in Houston

DEAR ABBY: I’m close to 70 and have three grown children. I’ve been a widow for 15 years. My oldest son, age 45, has pretty much cut himself off from our fairly close family. His reason: Two years ago, after I had surgery for lung cancer, he claims I told him I wished I had never had children. This couldn’t be further from the truth. All three of mine were planned. My other children decided the hospital was overmedicating me and that most of what I was babbling was nonsense. I only remember bits and pieces and have no idea whether my recollections are accurate. I have no problem dealing with my son’s attitude; I’m a realist. The problem is the way it’s affecting my 90-year-old mother, who lives with me. She feels he has cut her out of his life, too, because of me, and it appears she’s right. How can we convince him he’s ripping his grandmother’s heart out when he won’t talk to either of us? She doesn’t deserve such treatment, and he has no right to hurt her this way. -- BEWILDERED IN FLORIDA DEAR BEWILDERED: If this is the ONLY reason for the estrangement from your son -which I doubt -- have his siblings talk to him and point out that: (1) You were so drugged up after your surgery you were not in your

Build it and they will come!

Soldotna City manager Stephanie Queen show an artist’s rendering of the proposed new sports complex.

The memories of events that have been hosted at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex were so thick at the recent Joint Soldotna/Kenai Chamber of Commerce presentation you could cut them with a knife. From parents who couldn’t help from recalling their kid gliding out onto the ice for their first peewee hockey game to the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2006 Arctic Winter Games that were broadcast live coast to coast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Weddings, 50th Anniversary celebrations, Brown Bears hockey, important political events and the list goes on. Tim Dillon was the director for the 2006 Arctic Winter Games (AWG) and today is co-chair of the bond proposition that will go to the voters March 5 in a special election. “There is no way we would have even been considered as a host for such an event without this facility. And the lifetime memories of the 3,000 volunteers from Homer to Seward that stepped up to

do what needed to be done wouldn’t have those memories,” said Dillon. “There are so many different opportunities that will come our way with this new facility and the lifetime sports that it will avail itself to. I think it is something much needed and has been on people’s minds for a long time — like 15 to 20 years now. Our young people have been traveling to Anchorage on weekends to participate in athletic events because we just don’t have the facility for these other events. So think about it not just as the dol-

lars that will come, but the dollars that will not have to go out,” he said. Jeff Dolifka was born and raised in Soldotna and today is a practicing attorney in Soldotna with his dad Dale, and is the cochair of the committee to build the new facility. “I come at this from a different prospective than most, having been raised here, being a coach and now a father, an attorney in this community and business owner. I’m planning on being here for the long term. So some of my priorities are to provide more op-

portunities for kids around here. I struggled growing up with not having enough to do and it’s gotten worse — especially if your parents don’t have the means to be taking you to Anchorage,” said Dolifka. “This facility obviously is going after a different group than what the Sports Complex appeals to like hockey. There is a whole void that it will fill for basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, that isn’t met nine months of the year during the winter months,” he said. See SRSC, page A2

Romance was in the air at Hospice Wine Tasting & Auction.

The local community once again turned out in their formal regalia to support the activities of Hospice of the Central Peninsula, and were treated to nothing short of an elegant evening with all the trimmings. The 23rd Annual Hospice Wine Tasting and Auction offered much more than the satisfaction that

comes from supporting a local community service. The wine parings and dishes by Kenai Catering were unparalleled in the local community.

“It was a wonderful evening. We had great attendance, great food, great fellowship and camaraderie among our supporters,” reported Janice Nightingale,

executive director for the local hospice. The wine tasting event is the major fundraiser for the hospice. “These funds are used to support different programs that we offer the community, like the five wishes program, as well as other programs that provide grief support, and our loan closet that has items that can be loaned out to the community free of charge. So basically, we use these funds to pour back into the community and support people when they are at that most meaningful transition time in life,” said Kathy Rickman, the incoming board president for the hospice. See HOSPICE, page A2

. . . SRSC Dolifka paints the cost of new facility as an investment. “My goal in this whole effort is to save kids. I’m sick of losing kids. I see it over at the court system. I see it in our suicide rate among our youth. I see it kids turning to heroin resulting in overdose and deaths and I want to do something. Will this facility save every kid? Of course not. We’re not presenting it that way, but will it save some? Absolutely, every statistic out there says that if we get kids active and involved it decreases everything from criminal rates and drug addiction and increases their academic achievement and

scholarship opportunities. “That’s what this is about — opportunities of all kids with or without the means. Again, the data shows those kids with lesser means are more likely to fall into the criminal justice system and drugs and that is an expense and burden to the community. Look at the costs, do the math. And if we only save a few, the economic results will easily pay for this facility. And let’s not forget our aging community. We need to attract young families and their kids, which we will with more activities,” said Dolifka. The Supporters of the Soldotna Field House have a Facebook page where anyone can get more detailed information or can learn more at the City of Soldotna website.

Tim Navarre is greeted by Hospice staff and board president with a glass of champagne to start the annual fund raising event.

This year’s event organizer Wendi Dutcher was happy with the great turnout.

New at the wine tasting this year was an opportunity for folks in the community to sponsor Camp Mend-a-heart. “The camp is always free for the kids, but what happened at the event is that people in the community stepped up to sponsor the event. We auctioned off ‘sponsor a kid for camp.’ We invited folks to hold up their bid number if they wanted to sponsor a kid for camp, and we had enough response to sponsor 20 kids to camp this year. One of the things that Camp Mend-a-heart does is to provide a safe environment for children to explore their feelings related to the death of a loved one and learn how to thrive in the world without that special person,” said Nightingale. Nightingal also wants to get the word out about the hospice volunteer training coming up on March 22, 23, 29 and 30. It will be held at the Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna. Toni Reitter is the volunteer coordinator at the hospice and explained

. . . Events Continued from page A1

what it takes to be a hospice volunteer. “The training is almost like a group therapy session, where we discuss our concerns and trepidation and talk through our own personal experiences with end of life. Even if you haven’t experience the death of a loved one, you know someone who has, so we build on your past experiences. Even if you are not a direct care volunteer, there are opportunities we can use you for, and many ways you can help us serve the community. Just sign up for the volunteer training and find out what you may want to do within our organization. I have yet to meet someone that hasn’t gotten more out of being a volunteer than they put into it,” said Reitter. Wendi Dutcher coordinated this year’s wine tasting event. To learn more about how to support Hospice of the Central Peninsula you are invited to attend any of their regular board meetings, or you are always welcome to stop by the office on the Sterling Highway in the Alaska Storage mall.

When you tell someone you are a writer, common follow up questions usually include “Have I heard of you?” and “Can I find your stuff on Amazon?” If you aspire to be a published author, Dr. Casey J Rudkin and her writing and life partner James Rudkin have some suggestions for plotting a path through the uncertainty that is the ever changing publishing market. Writing under the pen name JC Rudkin, they will also have a short reading from their story “Your Plaintive Cries” from the recently published The Living Pulps edited by Oscar De Los Santos.
