In the news Kodiak city councilman charged with assault counts KODIAK — A Kodiak city councilman is free on bail after he was charged last week with six counts of felony assault, including assault with a weapon. The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports 31-yearold Randall Bishop also is charged with seven misdemeanor assault counts. Charging documents were not immediately available. Online court documents do not list Bishop’s attorney. Bishop did not immediately respond Monday to an email request for comment. According to the city website, Bishop won a three-year term to the council in 2011 and was re-elected twice. Magistrate Judge Dawson Williams set bail at $5,000. He told Bishop that under state law, hands used with the intent to cut off air or blood to the brain constitutes assault with a deadly instrument. Bishop faces a preliminary hearing March 18. — Associated Press

Schools face drastic cuts under budget plan Legislature District would see increased class sizes, school closures

By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Increased class sizes, no more sports and the closure of several schools are just a handful of the steps the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District would have to take to meet Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed reduction to state funding for education, according to a news release from Pegge Erkeneff, communications liaison for the district. Should the governor’s proposed budget pass through the state Legislature, the district would face a $22.4 million cut. Erkeneff said nothing on the list is set in stone, but it paints a picture of what could happen if funding is cut. To meet the reduction, class size would increase, the district said in the release. Educators could expect

the changes that have already been made to the ordinance and consider any further changes before authorizing the land sale. The largest parcel of land being considered in the ordinance is 120 acres and is located in the Murwood neighborhood off Kalifornsky beach road. During Tuesday’s meeting, several Murwood residents voiced their concerns about the potential impact of a DEC-registered contamination site that sits just south of the parcel in question. One resident was worried about the area being

It’s more than half way through the session and the Legislature finally passed the first resolution. The Alaska Legislature hoped to make its position on oil and gas development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge clear, with Senate Joint Resolution 7, which passed Monday, the 56th day of session, in both the House and Senate. “The opportunity to generate over $100 billion of state, federal and local government revenues… this will enhance life for all Alaskans,” said Rep. Sara Rasmussen, R-Anchorage. “At a time when we currently face drastic cuts to Medicaid expansion, education, including Pre-K, K-12 and the university system, we need to find other options to bring fiscal stability back to Alaska.” It passed 36-3 in the House, with Reps. Sara Hannan, D-Juneau, Adam Wool, D-Fairbanks, and Geran Tarr, D-Anchorage, holding the dissenting votes. The resolution then passed 18-1 in the Senate, with Anchorage Democratic Sen. Elvi Gray-Jackson carrying the dissenting vote. Tarr said she opposed the resolution due to the environmental risks oil drilling poses. “Because of the thaw-

Borough postpones decision on land sale By BRIAN MAZUREK Peninsula Clarion

The assembly postponed voting on an ordinance that would authorize the sale of several parcels of borough land at the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly’s meeting on Tuesday, March 5. Following a significant number of public comments, specifically concerns about a contamination site located near one of the parcels in question, Assembly Vice President Dale Bagley moved that the vote on ordinance 2019-03 be postponed until the assembly meeting on April

Former Anchorage judge urges passage of crime bill By KEVIN BAIRD Juneau Empire

The former Anchorage judge who presided over a sexual assault case that ignited outrage in the state provided testimony at the

Capitol on Monday to urge passing of a crime bill. Former Anchorage Superior Court Judge Michael Cory, who lost his seat on the court in a November ballot, appeared by phone at the Senate Finance committee

meeting Monday to talk to lawmakers about Senate Bill 12, which aims to close the “Schneider Loophole.” “I followed the law as it was. Quite frankly I was crucified for it,” Cory said of his role in Schneider’s criminal

case. “I support SB 12. … I was not the problem. The law was the problem.” Justin Schneider, 34, kidnapped a woman from an Anchorage gas station in 2017, strangled her until she passed out, and ejaculated on her. He

was later caught by authorities and pleaded guilty to a single felony charge, but was not sentenced to serve additional jail time. His crime fell outside the criminal code’s definition of sexual assault See BILL page A2

Senate Finance working on Alcohol licenses in limbo ‘step-down’ approach to cuts as changes considered By KEVIN BAIRD Juneau Empire

The two Republican co-chairs of the Senate Finance Committee announced Monday they want to take a multi-year “step-down” approach to cutting the state budget. The goal of the new approach would be to lessen the “shock” that Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed budget cuts could have on the econo-

JUNEAU (AP) — Some Alaska businesses that have been allowed to sell alcohol for years are finding that the state is denying their license renewals. Taku Lanes, the only bowling alley in Alaska’s capital, has been warning customers that no alcohol is available for purchase after the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board recently denied its license renewal, KTOO Public Media in Juneau

reported Friday. The bowling alley has been serving alcohol for over a decade without problem. “We’ve been losing a lot of customers,” said Kenny Paquin, the manager of Taku Lanes. Venues like bowling alleys and ski areas are not included in a provision of state law that outlines the recreational places or events where alcohol sales are permitted. See LIMBO, page A2

Legislature to hear public testimony on ferry system, PFD By MOLLIE BARNES Juneau Empire

The House Transportation Committee will take public testimony on the Alaska Marine Highway System Tuesday from 1:303 p.m., and then again from 5:30-6:30 p.m. The Senate State Affairs

committee is also hearing testimony on the Permanent Fund Dividend payback plan starting at 6 p.m. The ferry system is facing a $97 million cut — 75 percent of its budget — under Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed budget for fiscal 2020. The ferry system may only operate seasonally in-

stead of year-round. The AMHS has stopped taking reservations after Oct. 1. The AMHS could be facing up to 253 union job losses under Dunleavy’s proposed budget, according to Robb Arnold, a member of the Inland Boatman’s Union. The IBU is one of three unions that work with

the ferry system. That job reduction would include 100 jobs in Juneau and 81 in Ketchikan, Arnold said. Arnold said he and other union members learned that during a meeting in February with Department of Transportation officials. For those wanting to testify, please go to your local

Legislative Information Office (LIO) either between 1:30-3 p.m. or between 5:30 and 7 p.m. on Tuesday. The LIO in Kenai is located at 145 Main Street Loop, Suite 217. People who live in villages or other rural areas without an LIO can call 844-586-9085.

The board also threatened to deny the alcohol license for the Alaska State Fair, prompting lawmakers to proposed fixes. Sen. Peter Micciche, RSoldotna, has proposed legislation that would expand the definition of recreational sites, adding ski and snowboard areas and some other types of businesses to the list. “So what the bill is fo-

cused on is people that have traditionally operated — quality operators licensed under the law that are currently at risk,” Micciche said. The measure doesn’t address bowling alleys, but Micciche said he’s open to including other affected businesses. “I see no opposition to this legislation,” Micciche said. “I think it’s likely that

we move through this in a schedule that avoids that interruption to business.” In the meantime, the bowling alley that hosts a legislative league plans to hold special promotions to get people in the door, Paquin said. “Dollar bowling, so it’ll be like a $5 cover charge, $1 for shoes and $1 per game, all day, every day,” Paquin said.

the prosecuting attorney in a sexual assault case to make “reasonable effort” to confer with the victim concerning a plea deal. He said it lacked “teeth” because, nothing in this subsection requires the prosecuting attorney to be bound by the victim’s response. “It just seems like another soft-handed Pillsbury Doughboy type of feel-good legislation,” Olson said. Micciche said the language in SB 12 was written to add “balance” and respect the victim’s right be as involved in the case as much they want or don’t want to

be. No longer a judge, Cory was able to comment on the matter on Monday. He suggested the senators explore a provision that gives victims of sexual assault the right to veto a plea deal. He said this might meet a constitutional challenge, but it would be worth looking into. Cory urged them to pass the bill. “I certainly support all of the measures that are included in there,”he said. SB 12 would add the following provisions to close the Schneider Loophole: • Pre-trial time served on

an ankle bracelet would not take time off a post-conviction sentence. • If strangulation is part of the sex crime, that person can be charged with sexual assault in the first degree. • Requires the prosecuting attorney to make “a reasonable effort” to confer with the victim or their legal guardian and see if the victim is in agreement about any plea deals being proposed. • “Knowingly causing the victim to come into contact with semen” would be considered sexual contact.

putting people out of work and out of their homes,” Stedman said. Legislators are approaching the halfway point of the 120-day session and Stedman said it’s very difficult to put together a budget proposal when they are still expecting more budget-related legislation from the governor. In the meantime, he will continue to work with other legislators on this step-down approach. Von Imhof said this step-down approach would be more “pragmatic” than Dunleavy’s one-fell swoop proposal. “Let’s look at what’s more accomplishable in the short-term and what’s accomplishable in the long-term,” Von Imhof said. She noted that most commissioners are new and it will take them a year to truly understand their department, how to make

efficiency improvements and where to make cuts. Stedman said the “Permanent Fund Dividend could be used as a shock absorber” to infuse the economy with cash as they make cuts this year. The use of savings will also be considered in this stepdown plan; Dunleavy has vowed to not use savings this year to fund state government. “We will continue to put a step-down approach together,” Stedman said Von Imhof said, “Each one of these cuts has a real person and a real family behind it.” She said they discussed the budget with Dunleavy last week, but it was “general,” not about the step-down plan, and she does not know his thoughts on the matter. ‘Don’t panic’ about Marine Highway In addition to the new budget approach, Stedman

is working with Department of Transportation on a plan to keep the Alaska Marine Highway System running. He said he’s coordinating with Department of Transportation to develop a couple options for keeping the Alaska Marine Highway System open through Fiscal Year 2020. “I think the governor’s looking favorably on that. I’m getting very good response from the Marine Highway, DOT and the Marine Highway.” “He’s listening and I appreciate that,” Stedman said of Dunleavy. “For the crew, the employees and the employees’ families, I would suggest they just sit tight a little bit longer and not panic,” Stedman said. “Let us work through this process the next couple months, try and smooth things out.”

placed with its substitute by a unanimous vote, and the amendments were also approved unanimously. One of the Murwood residents said in response to the substitute ordinance that he thought the reduction in the size of the parcel was a step in the right direction, but would still like

eliminated, along with a reduction of hours and contract days for some positions. Without adequate funding from the state and Kenai Peninsula Borough, the district may also have to eliminate all sports in all high schools and middle schools along with athletic directors and coach stipends. Extracurriculars like music, yearbook and debate would also

face elimination. Charter schools would receive a reduction in funding. The district’s mobile app, which sends information and news alerts in the district to students and parents, would be cut. In-service meals and snacks would be discontinued and funding for Student Nutrition Service would be reduced, according to the release. School supplies would

see a 10 percent cut. School Technology Plan purchases would be eliminated. The closure of six schools are the most dramatic cuts listed in the news release. Chapman School in Anchor Point, McNeil Canyon School in Homer, Nikiski Middle-High School in Nikiski, Seward Middle School in Seward and Soldotna Prep in Soldotna are all schools being considered for closure if

the proposed budget passes. School pools and theaters in Kenai, Homer, Ninilchik, Seldovia, Seward and Soldotna could also be closed. The release says additional closures and consolidations are under review. The current capacity of schools, enrollment, location and a number of other factors are being analyzed when considering possible school closures and consoli-

dations, Erkeneff said. In addition to the eliminations and reductions listed in the release, $5 million in additional cuts would still be needed to meet the deficit of the governor’s proposed budget. The release said the list was compiled with the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education after several budget meetings in February.

tion. … Unfortunately both at our state and federal government, our highest leaders have abandoned the work on climate change.” The joint resolution says, “the Alaska State Legislature requests that the United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, implement an oil and gas leasing program in the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

as outlined in the December 2018 Coastal Plain Oil and Gas Leasing Program Draft Environmental Impact Statement.” Alaska’s congressional delegation had worked to open the 1002-area of the coastal plain to oil and gas development for decades. When the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was passed in December 2017, U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, worked to insert a provision in the act to open ANWR to development. Alaska and the federal government agreed upon a 50-50 split on revenues. The original resolution passed last week in the Senate, but was sent back for a vote in the Senate on Monday after representatives amended it to include language encouraging the oil and gas industry to use “the state’s workforce to the maximum extent possible.” Rep. David Eastman, RWasilla, attempted to amend the resolution further, but the vote for his amendment failed. His amendment urged

“the United States Congress to amend the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to honor the Alaska Statehood Act with respect to the state’s share of bonuses, royalties and rentals from exploration and development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.” Rep. Chuck Kopp, RAnchorage, said the resolution shouldn’t be about relooking at the 50-50 share of revenues with the federal government. “We are not trying to reintroduce an argument to Congress about what our share should be,” Kopp said. He said the Alaska congressional delegates already went through this discussion on the federal level. GOP lawmakers project at least $1 billion in revenue from drilling leases over 10 years. But environmental groups and other critics call those projections wildly optimistic, saying low global oil prices and high exploration costs are likely to limit drilling revenue. Protests have marked recent public hearings on the

plan in Fairbanks and Anchorage. The administration plan calls for at least two major lease sales, each on a minimum of 625 square miles in the refuge’s coastal plain. Surface development would be limited to 3 square miles. The plan has drawn criticism from environmental groups that say the environment impact study was done too fast, and no public hearings were set anywhere outside of Alaska. “There’s no precedent for anything done this quickly for an environmental review of this scale,” said Adam Kolton, executive director of the Alas-

ka Wilderness League in an interview with the Washington Post. He said that “this is really a rubber-stamp exercise rather than an effort to mitigate the impact to wildlife on the coastal plain.” He said that the location of the public hearings — all but one in Alaska — was unfair to people living in the Lower 48 states. “These are public lands that belong to all Americans,” he said, adding that polls show widespread opposition to drilling in the refuge. You can read the 392-page draft of the Coastal Plain Environmental Impact Statement and make comments through March 13.

What Others Say

A justifiable injustice Sacramento County Dist. Atty.

Anne Marie Schubert’s decision not to file criminal charges against the two officers who shot 22-year-old Stephon Clark to death a year ago did not reflect a determination that the officers acted properly. It was not a clean bill of health for their training, their department or their profession. It was not a statement that all is as it should be in policing and in racial equity. It was merely a conclusion — a proper one — that the officers did not commit crimes. Murder charges against police officers are too often held up as the gold standard of justice in fatal police shootings of young unarmed African American men like Clark. That simplistic calculus allows us to pretend that racism and injustice are alien forces that police spread through neighborhoods while on patrol, and that ridding ourselves of those evils can be as simple as weeding bad cops out of our law enforcement agencies. And indeed, there are bad cops. But not every shooting that seems in retrospect to have been avoidable is committed by a bad cop. Clark found himself in harm’s way thanks to a host of circumstances that prey upon many black young men. Schubert’s recitation at a news conference of Clark’s personal circumstances — including his numerous anguished calls to his girlfriend, his emails and texts, his search records showing he was studying suicide — was gratuitous in that the police knew none of it at the time they encountered him. The details had no bearing on their decision to open fire. But they do help explain his behavior. He was distraught. He needed help of a kind police are ill-equipped to provide. The officers who followed Clark to his grandmother’s backyard were responding to reports of vandalism in the neighborhood. They encountered a man who turned toward them, advanced and, Schubert said the evidence showed, assumed a shooting stance. They shot him, expecting that they would find a firearm in his possession. They found instead a cellphone. In response to the Clark shooting, California lawmakers last year proposed a bill that would change the standards that determine when police may lawfully resort to deadly force. Under the bill, they would have to first seek reasonable alternatives. They could fire only when the circumstances make it “necessary.” It’s a worthy bill, and although it failed to pass last year, a version has been introduced in the current session and deserves support. But even many of the experts who promoted the bill as it made its way through the Legislature last year quietly acknowledged that had it been law at the time of the Clark shooting, it would not have changed the analysis. Police cannot be expected not to follow a suspect. And when they do follow and catch up and the suspect turns toward them with what in their experience and training appears to be a shooting stance, with an object in hand, they cannot be expected to know that it is a phone. They cannot be expected to wait for the suspect to fire before determining that it is a gun. The killing was “justified,” as that term is used in evaluation of police shootings. But it was also an injustice, in the sense that a man having an emotional meltdown ought to have an array of services and options at his disposal to help him cope without harming himself or others. His family — anyone’s family — ought to be able to call someone with the skill and expertise to defuse the situation without resorting to deadly weapons. When armed police do respond, they ought to have the training and experience to de-escalate the situation when they can. After Schubert announced her decision, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg correctly distinguished between the question of criminal charges against police and the larger question of whether the interaction between the police and Clark had gone as it should. “Was the outcome wrong and unacceptable?” he asked. “The answer is yes.” Of course it is immensely infuriating — and frustrating and tragic — when a person loses his life at the hands of police who misjudged the danger they faced. Changes to the use-of-force standard are appropriate, but more community services and support and police training are paramount to ensure that more people don’t put themselves and others in harm’s way, and more police don’t find themselves without an alternative to pulling the trigger. — Los Angeles Times, March 4

Nancy Pelosi’s threat to free speech

The same Democrats outraged by Donald Trump’s alleged offenses against the First Amendment passed, as their first priority, a speech-restricting bill opposed by the American Civil Liberties Union. Trump shouldn’t call the media “the enemy of the people” or inveigh against Jeff Bezos for owning The Washington Post, but Nancy Pelosi’s HR 1, which passed the House last week, is the true affront to the Constitution. The wide-ranging legislation purports to reform campaign finance with a series of vague, sweeping measures that will act to chill speech when they don’t actively regulate or squelch it. HR 1 is called the For the People Act, but would be more aptly titled the Be Careful What You Say, It Might Be Illegal Act. Progressives can’t abide the notion that people in this country get together to spend money on advocacy outside the purview of the government — in other words, freely promote their favored causes as befits a free people living in a free country. HR 1 cracks the whip. As the Institute for Free Speech points out, the current campaign-finance rules limit expenditures that expressly advocate for the election or defeat of a candidate, or refer to a candidate in public advertising shortly before an election. The idea is to have clear rules so groups can promote their views without fear of running afoul of federal regulations. HR 1 blows this regime up. It seeks to regulate any speech at any time that “promotes or supports the candidate, or attacks or opposes an opponent of the

candidate,” a fuzzy standard that could catch up all manner of nonelectoral messages (e.g., “Trump’s tariffs are a mistake,” or “Support Trump’s wall”). HR 1 also widRich Lowry ens the definition of coordination between a group and a candidate to encompass almost any communication. It’d still be permissible to discuss a candidate’s position on an issue, so long as there no talk “regarding the candidate’s or committee’s campaign advertising, message, strategy, policy, polling, allocation of resources, fundraising, or other campaign activities.” Even if a group doesn’t coordinate with a candidate under this loose standard, it could still be deemed to have coordinated if it were founded by someone who goes on to become a candidate; relies on the professional services of someone who also did work for a candidate; or is run by someone who had conversations about a campaign with the relative of a candidate. On top of all this, HR 1 goes after the privacy of donors to advocacy organizations. It mandates the disclosure of the names and addresses of donors giving more than $10,000 to groups that engage in “campaign-related disbursements.” Given our toxic political environment, this would potentially subject the donors

to harassment and abuse, and they might not even be aware of or support the communications in question. Supporters of HR 1 say it is necessary to rein in super PACs, the frighteningsounding organizations that aren’t as unregulated as everyone believes (the Federal Election Commission gets reports of their expenditures and contributions). But, as the Institute for Free Speech notes, the bill affects a much broader array of “trade associations, unions, business groups, and advocacy organizations, such as Planned Parenthood and the National Right to Life Committee.” Love them or hate them, these groups are part of the warp and woof of American public life, and they shouldn’t have to think twice before engaging in acts of persuasion that enrich and enliven our democracy, not corrupt it. The Supreme Court has long put an emphasis on bright lines in its campaignfinance jurisprudence exactly to avoid a chilling effect on advocacy. It has said that laws must be “both easily understood and objectively determinable.” The campaign-finance provisions of HR 1 are neither. What HR 1 makes abundantly clear is that the foremost threat to the First Amendment are the people who believe that there is something untoward about unregulated political speech and seek to bring it under control.

Cutting, not taxing, is key to a sustainable budget The last letter to the editor I wrote was on the general principle of the governor coming forth with the budget that he had promised the people of Alaska. In this article, I want to make some specific talking points on the budget itself. This, of course, is knowing that smart legislators will make some deals with the governor and conservative colleagues to pay out more money working with him to get the main pieces of legislation passed that are important to Alaskans and a sustainable future. The governor has line-item veto authority, so the intended balance of our representative system will be in full force. Let’s start with the University, which has proposed cuts of around 17 percent of its current budget. There have been third-party reports that have shown in the past that the University of Alaska system has much more middle and upper management than similar universities around the country. I went to the University for 30 years, some full-time, most part-time to acquire my degrees. Every year I was there, the bureaucracy increased and there was always more paperwork and unnecessary process that had to be dealt with. It’s an interesting question as to whether creating more bureaucracy requires more rules and process to justify the jobs, or whether unnecessary rules and processes force the institution to hire more people to enforce them; either way it’s a vicious circle that never stops unless there is some economic pressure brought to bear. I’ve learned over the years through my involvement and observation of government entities that they never get lean and efficient with budget pressures; they always spend what they are given, cre-

School District has squirreled away, which came because we taxed more for them than they needed. They’re actually ashamed enough of their budgeting that they stopped the Fingertip Facts publication a few years ago that showed the public where the money came from and went in a nice simple layout. Last year, they started giving the school board an incomplete budget document, so that they don’t even have all the information they need. There are many right now in the public sector hammering on the Legislature to take most or all of Alaskans’ PFDs. Something you should know about is the presentation that economist Ed King gave to House Finance last week. He said if we didn’t cut spending and just used the POMV (percent of market value) method and only paid dividends under $500, after two years the entire POMV will be entirely used by the increase that naturally occurs in the budget due to wage and other cost increases. The prior governor had attempted an income tax and found that at best it would bring in about $350 million, about a fifth of the deficit. The lesson to be learned here is that you can’t run away from the problem by taxing the PFD or any other tax; if you don’t decrease the budget you will never be sustainable. The last administration ignored that reality, and now the situation is a little more advanced. Wherever the Legislature ends this year on the budget, they have to keep moving it downwards so we can one day have a sustainable budget.

ating the structure to spend the money. Keep that in mind with ALL of the budget issues, that years of overspending has created inefficient entities that until now had no reason to restrain themselves. One practical example of what the university could do is to combine all the campuses into one. Not physically of course, but management-wise. Currently, they duplicate a lot of management running each campus as an independent entity. This would be a great first step to becoming a more efficient university and would result in the end in better education as resources would be more focused on educating instead of managing. Another easy to implement step is to move some of the satellite campuses back to the community college model. The K-12 system is another great example of inefficiency. Currently, Prince of Wales Island has four school districts that encompass it. In Fairbanks, the place I have the numbers for, the school district over the last 28 years has decreased in student count, the number of teachers has stayed pretty flat, but staff has more than doubled, and administration has gone up over 40 percent. So it would be nice if they didn’t use teachers as weapons to try and get more money from the State.

Nation/World Trump budget previews campaign agenda

WASHINGTON — Frustrated by a divided Congress and rifts within his own party, President Donald Trump is giving little indication in his latest budget proposal of any new policy ambitions for the coming two, or six, years. Trump’s budget plan increases spending on his border wall and the military but is light on fresh ideas heading into his re-election campaign. His budget for the next fiscal year, which has little chance of advancing in Congress, largely fo-

cuses on deep spending cuts and pushing more money toward established goals such as his long-promised wall, improving care of veterans and combating opioid abuse. Budgets may offer a president’s vision for the direction of the nation, but Trump’s latest also offers an early window into his upcoming campaign. With the Democratic race to unseat him heating up, Trump is contending with middling approval ratings, energized Democrats and political vulnerabilities in critical states. Like his predecessors, he’ll soon be called on to complete the

politically loaded phrase, “Send me back to the White House so that I can …” “I think, as he gets closer to 2020, he will need to lay out what a second term would look like,” said Republican consultant Alex Conant. “Voters always want to know, ‘What have you done for me lately?’ If he doesn’t paint a picture of what his second term will look like, then the Democrats will do it for him.” The White House argues that Trump isn’t just advancing the same policies a second time over, he’s enhancing them with more detail than his first goround, particularly in the area of trade policy. Following a State of the Union address that contained little new policy, the budget is hardly a surprise. Still, the budget can serve more than one political purpose, argued former Trump campaign aide Barry Bennett, who said the document highlights Trump’s clashes with Democrats over border and military funding. He argued that the Democratic tilt to the left also will benefit Trump as he seeks to frame the argument. Bennett said Trump’s

pitch can be: “If your paycheck likes what I’ve done, send me back. If you don’t, they’ll undo it all.” Trump has already addressed much of his laundry-list agenda from 2016, notching victories in many areas while seeking to minimize losses and mixed results. He has cut taxes, exited global accords and installed conservative judges on the courts, including two Supreme Court justices. He has not succeeded in replacing President Barack Obama’s health care law, is still working on renegotiating trade deals and has struggled to secure all the funding he wants for his border wall. In all, the efforts have largely pleased his political base, but satisfaction with past performance is hardly a reliable tactic for expanding your support. Thus far, Trump’s reelection campaign moves have been laser-focused on maintaining his most ardent supporters. It’s a risky wager, laid down by the president himself, that he can overcome weakness with moderate and independent voters by turning out even more loyalists in 2020 than he did in 2016.

Chaos spreads in Venezuela after days without power By FABIOLA SANCHEZ and SCOTT SMITH Associated Press

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelans on Monday converged on a polluted river in Caracas to fill water bottles and held scattered protests in several cities as growing chaos took hold in a country whose people have had little power, water and communications for days. A 3-year-old girl with a brain tumor languished in a Caracas hospital, awaiting treatment after doctors started surgery but then suspended the operation when nationwide power outages first hit on Thursday, said the girl’s fearful mother, who only gave her first name, Yalimar. “The doctors told me that there are no miracles,” said Yalimar, who hopes her daughter can be transferred Tuesday to one of the few hospitals in Venezuela that would be able to finish the complex procedure. The girl’s story highlighted an unfolding horror in Venezuela, where years of hardship got abruptly worse after the power grid collapsed. On Monday, schools and businesses were closed, long lines

of cars waited at the few gasoline stations with electricity and hospitals cared for many patients without power. Generators have alleviated conditions for some of the critically ill. There were also acts of kindness: People whose food would rot in fridges without power donated it to a restaurant, which cooked it for distribution to charitable foundations and hospitals. The blackouts have also hit Venezuela’s oil industry. The country hasn’t shipped $358 million in oil since the power failures started, and “the whole system is grinding to a halt,” said

Russ Dallen, a Miamibased partner at the brokerage firm Caracas Capital Markets. Two large tankers are sitting empty at the Jose offshore oil-loading dock, and at least 19 other ships are waiting their turns there, Dallen said. Engineers have restored power in some parts of Venezuela, but it often goes out again. There have been a few protests in Caracas and reports of similar antigovernment anger elsewhere. Opposition leader Juan Guaido tweeted about reports of looting in some cities, but details were difficult to confirm.

Security forces in the city of Maracaibo dispersed “criminals” trying to take advantage of the power cuts, Mayor Willy Casanova told local media. However, numerous videos posted on social media that purported to be from Maracaibo showed crowds roaming the streets and people running from looted, damaged buildings with no police in sight. In Caracas, some people reported more sightings of “colectivos,” a term for armed groups allegedly operating on behalf of the state to intimidate opponents. While President Nicolas Maduro and other government officials said they were working hard to restore power and provide basic necessities, the mood in Caracas was desperate. Marian Morales, a nurse working for a Catholic youth group, and several colleagues handed out diapers and food from their car, parked near a hospital. Police and men in civilian clothing ordered them to leave, saying they didn’t have permission. Morales said the needy are cautious about approaching to collect the handouts because of the presence of security forces.

Ethiopian crash victims were aid workers, doctors, academics By The Associated Press

They worked to bring food to the hungry, medicine to the sick and clean water to people living in areas without it. Among the 157 people who died in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jetliner Sunday were dozens of international aid workers hailing from several countries in Africa and around the globe. Described as dedicated and impassioned employees of nonprofit environmental, immigration and refugee organizations, they lost their lives alongside pastors, professors, ambassadors, police chiefs and respected writers and sports leaders. All were on board the Boeing 737 Max 8 jetliner when it crashed shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, en route to Nairobi, Kenya. At least five Ethiopian nationals who worked for aid agencies died in the crash. Save the Children mourned the loss of Tamirat Mulu Demessie, a technical adviser on child protection in emergencies who “worked tirelessly to ensure that vulnerable children are

safe during humanitarian crises,” the group said in a statement. Catholic Relief Services lost four Ethiopian staff members who had worked with the organization for as long as a decade. The four were traveling to Nairobi for training, the group said. Immaculate Odero of Kenya, who served as CARE’s regional security officer for the Horn of Africa, was “dedicated to keeping her colleagues in the region safe,” and took on her role “with great enthusiasm,” the agency said. The Red Cross; The United Nations’ World Food Program; the International Committee for the Development of Peoples; the World Council of Churches; and Civil Rights Defenders, an international human rights group based in Stockholm, were among other humanitarian and cultural groups reporting losses. A family of six from Canada, African expatriates visiting families back home and tourists were also among the victims, who hailed from 35 countries. Kenya lost 32 people, more than any country.

Relatives of 25 of the victims had been contacted, Transport Minister James Macharia said. “They are in shock like we are,” he said. “They are grieving.” Both Addis Ababa and Nairobi are major hubs for humanitarian workers, and some had been on their way to a large U.N. environmental conference set to begin Monday in Nairobi. At least 21 staff members from the United Nations were killed in the crash, said U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who led a moment of silence at a meeting. “A global tragedy has

hit close to home,” Guterres said. Irishman Michael Ryan was among the seven dead from the Food Program. The Rome-based aid worker and engineer known as Mick was formerly from Lahinch, County Clare, in Ireland’s west. His projects included creating safe conditions for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and assessing the damage to rural roads in Nepal that were blocked by landslides. “Michael was doing lifechanging work in Africa,” said Irish premier Leo Varadkar.

Around the World Google paid former exec $35 million after harassment claim SAN FRANCISCO — Google paid former search executive Amit Singhal $35 million in an exit package when he was reportedly forced to resign after a sexual assault investigation, according to court documents released Monday. Details of the exit package were revealed as part of a shareholder lawsuit against the company, one that followed a published report of payouts Google made to executives accused of sexual misconduct. The lawsuit targets the board of Google parent Alphabet, charging that its members had a duty to protect the company and its shareholders from risk and reputation damage. Instead, it says, the board agreed to pay off and otherwise support male executives facing misconduct charges — opening the company to reputational and financial damage by doing so. Previously redacted portions of the lawsuit were made available Monday, including quotes from Alphabet board committee meetings. One portion of the minutes showed that Singhal, a senior vice president of search who left the company in 2016, received two $15 million payments and a payment of between $5 million to $15 million as part of a separation agreement. The total payment could have been up to $45 million. Singhal was one subject of a New York Times investigation last year that revealed Google paid Android creator Andy Rubin $90 million in a severance package after the company found allegations of sexual assault against him were credible. Rubin has denied the claims. Singhal has also denied the claims against him, saying in a statement to the AP in 2017 that he had not been accused of harassment before and that he left Google on his own terms. Singhal did not immediately return a request for comment Monday. But the New York Times, citing three people briefed on the incident, reported that an employee claimed Singhal groped her at an off-campus event. A Google investigation found her claims credible, according to the Times. Previously, the Times reported Singhal was paid “millions” in an exit package. Singhal later joined Uber, but left after just five weeks. News reports at the time said he failed to tell Uber he left Google because of a sexual harassment allegation. Google acknowledged the unredacted claims in the lawsuit Monday and said in a statement that there are “serious consequences for anyone who behaves inappropriately at Google.” “In recent years, we’ve made many changes to our workplace and taken an increasingly hard line on inappropriate conduct by people in positions of authority,” the company said in an emailed statement.

Algeria’s president abandons bid for 5th term amid protests ALGIERS, Algeria — Algeria’s president of two decades abandoned his bid for a fifth term Monday following unprecedented protests over his fitness for office, but his simultaneous postponement of an election set for next month had critics worried he intends to hold on to power. President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who has rarely been seen in public since he had a stroke in 2013 and just returned from two weeks in a Geneva hospital, promised to establish a panel to plan a rescheduled vote and to put an interim government in place. In a letter to the nation released by state news agency APS on Monday, Bouteflika, 82, stressed the importance of including Algeria’s disillusioned youth in the reform process and putting the country “in the hands of new generations.” But for many of the protesters - students, lawyers and even judges among them - the most important sentence in the president’s letter read, “There will be no fifth term.” Celebrations popped up instead of protests on the streets of the capital, Algiers, at the news. Car horns rang out while people waved flags, jumped up and down, and sang the national anthem. Several thanked Bouteflika. One described the development as a “real ray of sunshine. Others were more cautious, calling their longtime leader’s pledge to step aside just a first step. Bouteflika did not give a date or timeline for the delayed election. He said in his Monday letter that the “national conference” he would task with planning the vote also would be responsible for drafting a new constitution for Algeria. He said he would name an interim government as well. The changes were put in motion within hours. Noureddine Bedoui, a Bouteflika loyalist and the current interior minister, was made prime minister and charged with forming the new administration, according to Algerian state news agency APS. Critics said they fear the moves could pave the way for the president to install a hand-picked successor. Others saw his decision to postpone the election indefinitely as a threat to democracy in Algeria. A wily political survivor, Bouteflika fought in Algeria’s independence war against French forces and has played a role in Algeria’s major developments for the past half-century. He became president in 1999 and reconciled a nation riven by a deadly Islamic insurgency, but questions swirl over whether he is really running the country today. The recent protests surprised Algeria’s opaque leadership and freed the country’s people, long fearful of a watchful security apparatus, to openly criticize the president. Algerians also expressed anger over corruption that put their country’s oil and gas riches in the hands of a few while millions of young people struggle to find jobs. The unprecedented citizens’ revolt drew millions into the streets of cities across the country to demand that Bouteflika abandon his candidacy. On Monday, Algerian state television aired the first images of Bouteflika since the protests started. Bouteflika, who has used a wheelchair since his stroke, appeared weak and moved with slow gestures. No sound accompanied the images. — The Associated Press

Petit’s dogs quit as he falls from lead By MARK THIESSEN Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — French musher Nicolas Petit looked like he was in solid control of the world’s most famous sled dog race and about to erase a year of doubts and second-guessing after a last minute misstep cost him the 2017 title. Then the dogs quit on him Monday morning. A dog named Joey had been fighting with another dog on the team and jumped it during a break as the team was making its way to the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race checkpoint of Koyuk on the Bering Sea coast. “I yelled at Joey, and everybody heard the yelling, and that doesn’t happen,” Petit told the Iditarod Insider website. “And then they wouldn’t go anymore. Anywhere. So we camped here.” Several mushers passed Petit’s

team on the trail, erasing his fivehour lead in the race. Pete Kaiser of Alaska was the first musher into Koyuk, followed about an hour later by defending champion Joar Ulsom of Norway. Kaiser rested for nearly 5 ½ hours before getting back on the trail. The checkpoint is 827 miles into the 1,000-mile race across Alaska. Petit said his dogs are well-fed, and there’s no medical issue keeping them from getting up and running. “It’s just a head thing,” he said. “We’ll see if one of these dog teams coming by will wake them up at all.” People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals took issue with Petit’s reasoning. “It’s not the dogs who need to have their heads examined — it’s anyone who supports this merciless race. Illness, injury, or fatigue likely prompted Nicolas Petit to

drop four dogs from his team, forcing the remaining 10 to work even harder before they gave up altogether, which he blamed on ‘just a head thing,’” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a statement. But Libby Riddles, the 1985 Iditarod champion and the first woman to win the race, said the incident demonstrates why dog mushing is a fine art. It requires a balance between being competitive and keeping the dogs happy. “People have this idea that you can force these dogs to Nome,” she said in a phone interview. “It’s not like that at all.” “The amount of intuition and communication and trust and experience you have with your dogs is how it all happens and comes together, and Nic Petit happens to actually be one of the best in the business at this,” Riddles said. Riddle been involved with mushing for 40 years and said she

could live 20 lifetimes and not learn everything. But if the dogs get unhappy, they can quit on you, she said. “Sometimes all it takes is just this one sour grape in the team,” Riddles said. “One dog that has a bad attitude, and it infects the whole rest of the team.” Huskies in some ways are more primitive than other dogs, she said. Mushers are dealing with their pack mentality. “It’s like a wolf. Things happen over food. Sometimes if they think a dog is a little wimpy, when they’re crabby, they might want to pick on it,” she said. Petit will learn from the experience and rebuild, she said. “I think Nic is handling this pretty well, actually. I think he wants to make sure to preserve a good mental attitude with these dogs for the rest of their careers. That’s what he’s looking at — not just today’s race,” Riddles said.

For Petit, it’s another bad memory from the stretch between the Shaktoolik and Koyuk checkpoints. He was in command of last year’s race when he got off trail during a blizzard and lost the lead. He wound up finishing second behind Ulsom. “Something about right here, huh?” he mused. The race started March 2 in Willow, just north of Anchorage. The course through the Alaska wilderness took mushers over two mountain ranges and the frozen Yukon River before they reached the treacherous Bering Sea coast. The winner is expected to come off the sea ice and mush down Nome’s main street to the finish line sometime in the middle of the week. Associated Press writer Dan Joling contributed to this report.

Islanders, Greiss shut out Blue Jackets By The Associated Press

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Thomas Greiss made 31 saves in his fifth shutout of the season, helping the New York Islanders beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-0 on Monday night. Ryan Pulock and Anders Lee scored as New York (40-22-7) improved its playoff positioning in the tough Metropolitan Division. The Islanders improved to 168-1 against divisional opponents. Columbus (38-28-3) lost for the fourth time in six games, dropping into a tie with Montreal for the second wild card in the Eastern Conference. Sergei Bobrovsky made 18 saves, but the Blue Jackets were unable to get to the steady Greiss.

Pulock put the Islanders in front when he drove a slap shot by Bobrovsky 6:11 into the first. Pulock surpassed his point total from his rookie year, registering his 33rd point of his sophomore season. SHARKS 3, WILD 0 ST. PAUL, Minn. — Martin Jones made 24 saves to continue his hot streak and lead San Jose to its fifth straight win. Barclay Goodrow, Tomas Hertl and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks. Devan Dubnyk made 26 saves for the Wild. For Jones, it was his third shutout and 34th win of the season. Twenty-five of those wins have come since the start of December, the best total in the league over that span. Jones is the first goaltender in San Jose history to post four con-

secutive 30-win seasons, and he’s the only goaltender in the league since 2015-16 to have four 30-win seasons.

FLYERS 3, SENATORS 2 PHILADELPHIA — Oskar Lindblom, Michael Raffl and Scott Laughton scored in the second period to lead hardcharging Philadelphia to the win. The Flyers have won four of five games to move into the wild-card race. Brian Elliott, subbing for the injured Corey Hart, made 20 saves.

HURRICANES 3, AVALANCHE 0 DENVER — Andrei Svechnikov had two goals and an assist, Petr Mrazek stopped 38 shots and Carolina earned a rare win at Pepsi Center. Defenseman Dougie Ham-

ilton also scored as the Hurricanes won in Denver for just the second time in 13 games since Colorado moved into its longtime home for the 19992000 season. Mrazek’s fourth shutout of the season propelled the Hurricanes into a tie with Pittsburgh for third place in the Metropolitan Division. Carolina currently holds the tiebreaker. Colorado remains two points behind Minnesota for the final wild-card spot. The Wild lost earlier to San Jose.

LIGHTNING 6, MAPLE LEAFS 2 TORONTO — Tyler Johnson and Cedric Paquette each scored two goals, powering the NHL-leading Lightning to another victory. Anthony Cirelli and Ondrej Palat also scored for Tampa Bay (53-13-4), and Ryan McDonagh, Yanni Gourde and Jan

Rutta had two assists apiece. Nikita Kucherov helped set up the game’s first goal for his NHL-best 111th point of the season. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 26 saves to improve to 12-1-2 over his last 15 starts.

BLACKHAWKS 7, COYOTES 1 CHICAGO — Brendan Perlini scored three goals against his former team for his first career hat trick, and the Blackhawks earned their third straight win. Patrick Kane fired in his 41st goal as Chicago moved within five points of the second wild card in the Western Conference. Jonathan Toews, Brandon Saad and Chris Kunitz also scored, and Corey Crawford made 24 saves. Arizona had won eight of nine to surge back into the playoff picture. Richard Panik scored

against his former team early in the first period, but the Blackhawks took charge midway through the opening frame. Arizona’s Darcy Kuemper made his 10th straight start, but was replaced by Calvin Pickard in the second period after giving up four goals on 16 shots. Pickard blocked 15 of 18 shots.

OILERS 3, RANGERS 2, OT EDMONTON, Alberta — Leon Draisaitl scored 35 seconds into overtime and had a pair of assists, helping Edmonton to the victory. Connor McDavid and Matt Benning also scored for the Oilers (31-31-7), who improved to 7-2-2 in their last 11 games. New York lost for the seventh time in its last eight games. Brendan Lemieux and Brett Howden scored for the Rangers (28-28-13), and Alexandar Georgiev made 30 saves.

McCormick stars for UAA track Today in History Staff report Peninsula Clarion

Dani McCormick, a 2015 graduate of Soldotna High School and senior at the University of Alaska Anchorage, earned two All-America honors at the NCAA Division II Indoor Track and Field Championships in Pittsburg, Kansas, on Friday and Saturday to help the Seawolves to a fourth-place finish at the meet. Friday, McCormick helped the UAA distance medley relay team to

second place. McCormick ran the third leg, which is the 800 meters. She started her leg in fourth place, but was able to get the Seawolves back into a tie for second place. Senior Caroline Kurgat was able to secure second place. Saturday, McCormick finished third in the 800 in 2 minutes, 6.28 seconds, to break her own school record. Skylyn Webb of UC-Colorado Springs led from the opening gun to win in 2:04.94. “Dani ran aggressively, which is what she needed to do because the 800-meter field was stacked,” said

UAA head coach Michael Friess in a released statement. “Her school record and third place finish set the stage for Caroline.” Kurgat would go on to win the 3,000 for her fifth national title. The fourth place finish sets a new high-water mark for the UAA women. “I’m amazingly proud of our team,” Friess said. “A total of 11 American performances and an amazing podium finish for the women’s team. We are bringing back a trophy! It was an amazing weekend for UAA track and field.”

In 1925, Chinese revolutionary leader Sun Yat-sen died in Beijing. In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered the first of his 30 radio addresses that came to be known as “fireside chats,” telling Americans what was being done to deal with the nation’s economic crisis. In 1938, the Anschluss merging Austria with Nazi Germany took place as German forces crossed the border between the two countries. In 1947, President Harry S.

A three-day blizzard that came to be known as “The Storm of the Century” began inundating the eastern third of the U.S. A series of bombings in Mumbai, India, killed 257 people (the explosions were allegedly masterminded by India’s most wanted man, Dawood Ibrahim). In 2003, Elizabeth Smart, the 15-year-old girl who vanished from her bedroom nine months earlier, was found alive in a Salt Lake City suburb with two drifters, Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Barzee.

Five years ago: With Ukraine’s interim prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk (ahr-SEHN’-ee yaht-sehn-YOOK’), at his side, President Barack Obama said the United States would “completely reject” a referendum in Crimea opening the door for the Ukrainian peninsula to join Russia. In New York City, a gas explosion destroyed two fivestory East Harlem apartment buildings, killing eight people and injuring more than 60. One year ago: Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee said they’d completed a draft report concluding that there was no collusion or coordination between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia. British Prime Minister Theresa May said Russia was “highly likely” to blame for poisoning a former spy and his daughter in an English city with a military-grade nerve agent. Two package bomb blasts a few miles apart killed a teenager and wounded two women in Austin less than two weeks after a similar attack left a man dead in another part of the Texas capital. (The attacks were part of a series of bombings that killed two people and wounded four others; the suspect, Mark Conditt, died after detonating a bomb in his SUV as officers moved in.) After a 46-year career at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, conductor James Levine was fired; an investigation had found evidence of sexual abuse and harassment.

Drivers persevere as track turns watery, rutty

I

t was an extremely wet day of ice racing for the Kenai Peninsula Ice Race Association on Sunday, but a lot of fun was had at the Decanter Inn at Mile 107 of the Sterling Highway. The day started out a little rainy, then the sun came out. The track was very soft and turned to water on ice quickly. The spectators hung in there through the rain and got to watch some great ice/ water racing. Thank you to all who came out and supported us this weekend. The men managed to complete their races early in the day with the results looking like this: men’s first heat finished with the checkered flag going to JT Hawkins (#13), second place to

Willie Stephens (#41z) and third to Dustin Bass (#46). The men’s second heat checkered flag went to Willie Stephens (#41z), second place was Gavin Wallis (#17) and third went to Anthony Hannevold (#21). The men’s main event looked something like this … very wet and third place was Dallas Greenway (#99), JT Hawkins (#13) came in second and the checkered went to Frank Armstrong (#31). The trophy dash consisted of five vehicles competing for the win. The trophy dash winner was Willie Stephens (#41z)! Great job Willie. Dustin Bass (#46) came in second and Anthony Hannevold (#21) was third. The Pitman’s Race consisted

I ce R acing F aith L ink of men and women, and remember after each race the track is softer and wetter. So, while swimming around the track trying to avoid the deep ruts the Pitman races ended with Anthony Hannevold (#2 ½) pedal down, hydroplaning around the track for the win. Dallas Greenway, driving #21, finished second and Dennis Ziemke (#19) took third. The track was very challenging with the deep ruts and a lot of

water and slush. Congratulations to all the winners and those who participated. It was a great day and has been a great season. We held the Old Timers and Memorial Race this weekend. It was great to see some of the Old Timers out and driving. Even with the track in the condition it was in, they still played. Herff Keith took home the checkered flag in truck #19. It was exciting for him, his family and all those watching. The final race of the day was the Memorial Race. We held a five-lap Memorial Race with both men and women drivers for all the fallen racers and their families. It was a great turnout of vehicles participating and was

the best showing of support from racers and fans! Anthony Hannevold in car #2 ½ floated his way around the track to win the final race of the day. The Kenai Peninsula Ice Race Association will be showing off some of the racing vehicles in the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday in Soldotna. Be sure to look for us and enjoy the parade. Keep an eye on our Facebook page Kenai Peninsula Ice Race Association for updates on next weekend’s racing. We have tentatively scheduled to race Saturday due to the parade on Sunday but will post updates as quickly as possible on the track condition and race status.

Foles to Jaguars, Collins to Washington, Brown to Oakland By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

NEW YORK — Nick Foles is headed to Jacksonville, Landon Collins to Washington and Trent Brown to Oakland. The big-money offers for NFL free agents began Monday, two days before they can sign contracts. Foles brings a Super Bowl pedigree to quarterbacking the Jaguars, and Brown has a championship ring as he moves to the Raiders’ offensive line at left tackle. Safety Collins heads a few hours south from the New Jersey Meadowlands, where he could haunt his former team twice a year.

All of Monday’s deals were confirmed by people with knowledge of the agreements who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because nothing can be official until Wednesday. Foles has agreed to sign a four-year, $88 million contract with the Jaguars. The deal includes $50.125 million guaranteed and could be worth up to $102 million with incentives as he replaces Blake Bortles, who threw 103 touchdown passes in five seasons but was known more for inaccuracy and inconsistency that led to Jacksonville’s offensive instability. Bortles is expected to be released this week before

Rockets defeat Hornets By The Associated Press

HOUSTON — James Harden scored 28 points and Eric Gordon added 22 as the Houston Rockets cruised to their season-high ninth straight win, 118-106 over the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night. A night after Gordon ended a streak of 43 straight games where Harden led the team in scoring, the Beard was Houston’s top scorer again. But Gordon had another strong outing, making five 3-pointers for the third straight game and the fourth in five games. THUNDER 98, JAZZ 89 SALT LAKE CITY — Dennis Schroder scored 24 points, Russell Westbrook added 23 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists, and Oklahoma City beat Utah to sweep the season series. Westbrook appeared to argue with fans of the Jazz, who knocked the Thunder out of the postseason last year. Paul George chipped in 14 points and 11 rebounds. Steven Adams and Jerami Grant added 12 points apiece.

CLIPPERS 140, CELTICS 115 LOS ANGELES — Lou Williams scored 34 points and became the NBA’s career leader in points off the bench as Los Angeles beat Boston for its fifth straight win. Williams came into the game needing 28 points to pass Dell Curry, who had 11,147 points when not starting. Williams surpassed Curry with 9:53 remaining in the fourth quarter with a driving layup. It is also Williams’ 29th career game with 30 or more points. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, starters and reserves were tracked in box scores beginning with the 1970-71 season.

NETS 103, PISTONS 75 NEW YORK — Spencer Dinwiddie scored 19 points and Brooklyn routed Detroit to move into sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Allen Crabbe finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds, Rodions Kurucs scored 13 points, and Joe Harris and Caris LeVert each added 12 as the Nets took control early in the game and never let up.

CAVALIERS 126, RAPTORS 101 CLEVELAND — Collin Sexton scored 28 points, Kevin Love had 16 points and 18 rebounds, and Cleveland routed Toronto. Toronto’s Serge Ibaka and Cleveland’s Marquese Chriss were ejected for fighting late in the third quarter. Ibaka went to the floor after the two were battling for position under Cleveland’s basket as the Raptors attempted a full-court pass that sailed out of bounds.

WIZARDS 121, KINGS 15 WASHINGTON — Bradley Beal scored 21 of his 27 points after halftime, helping Washington beat Sacramento despite twice giving back double-digit leads. Beal added nine rebounds and nine assists for the 11th-place Wizards, who moved within 3 1/2 games of the eighth Eastern Conference playoff spot currently held by idle Miami.

a $1 million roster bonus comes due Sunday. The Redskins agreed to sign the 25-year-old Collins to a six-year, $84 million deal with $45 million guaranteed. He led the Giants with 96 tackles last season, and his 437 since entering the NFL in 2015 are the most among safeties in that time, but the Giants opted not to give him the franchise tag. Collins fills one of Washington’s biggest needs on a defense that ranked 17th in the league last season. Brown was a real find for New England before last season, and his payday will come with the Raiders after agreeing to a four-year deal worth $66 million. He will

receive $36.75 million guaranteed in the richest contract ever for an offensive lineman. According to Pro Football Focus, Raiders tackles allowed 30 sacks in pass protection last season, most in the NFL, while Brown gave up just three in 580 pass blocking snaps. Also Monday: — DeSean Jackson is close to returning to Philadelphia. The Eagles have agreed to acquire the wide receiver from Tampa Bay along with a 2020 seventhround draft pick for a sixthround pick this year. The deal is contingent upon Jackson agreeing to a new contract. Five years ago, then-Eagles coach Chip

Kelly released the threetime Pro Bowl pick following his best season. The Eagles also have agreed on a three-year contract with defensive tackle Malik Jackson, who spent the past three seasons with the Jaguars after playing his first four with Denver, earning one Super Bowl ring. The 28-year-old Jackson had 18 sacks in Jacksonville, including 3½ last season. The Eagles also announced nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters has agreed to a new, one-year deal to return for his 16th NFL season and 11th in Philadelphia. — Seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker Terrell Suggs is

leaving the Baltimore Ravens. The 36-year-old Suggs has played all 16 of his seasons in Baltimore and said at the end of the 2018 season he wanted to spend his entire career with the Ravens. That won’t happen. — Kansas City reached agreement with safety Tyrann Mathieu on a $42 million, three-year deal. The 26-year-old Mathieu was selected by Arizona in the third round of the 2013 draft after a standout career at LSU. He showed glimpses of his ball-hawking, playmaking abilities with the Cardinals, earning a Pro Bowl selection during the 2015 season, but also dealt with his share of injuries.

She also feeds the neighborhood cats, so at any given time of day, there are 10 to 18 cats in our front yard. The dogs inside have no boundaries. They have taken over the main living space. The family room sofas are filthy and destroyed, so we can’t use that space either, and it’s a total eyesore. The carpet is gone, and there is dirt and dog hair everywhere. I’m at my wits’ end. I feel I have no say in this matter, and I’m constantly stressed over these living conditions. I hate going home. I have dogs with me when I eat, sleep and make love.

miles away, and the drive is a long one, so we stay overnight. On our last visit, she pulled me aside and expressed how uncomfortable she and her husband have been feeling with the sleeping arrangement. They don’t agree with us sleeping in the same room because we are “not married.” I know it’s more than that -- it is because we are not a straight couple. They said they prefer we sleep in different rooms when we visit them. My partner and I feel devastated, sad and obviously blindsided. We don’t know what to do. Can you help?

-- SECOND-CLASS CITIZEN DEAR SECOND CLASS: From your description, it’s unlikely that your sister and her husband will become more accepting than they are. As I see it, you have no choice but to “turn the other cheek” and spend your nights in a nearby hotel or motel. That may be the sacrifice you have to make to maintain your close relationship with the kids. If you and your partner eventually decide to marry, do not be surprised if it does not change the situation.

think carefully. News from a distance could make you smile and give you a lot to think about. Midday, you take charge of a project at work. Others admire your efficiency. Do not nitpick. Tonight: A must appearance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH One-on-one relating in the earlier part of the day draws you closer to the other party. By afternoon, you eye a more conceptual interaction. Understand what someone is saying, although you might need to stop and walk in this person’s footsteps. Tonight: Let your imagination lead.

If single, you could meet someone out of the blue who might be very enticing. Tonight: Put on your dancing shoes. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You could be direct and say what you want. Others want to put in their two cents, too. As a result you might want to close your office door or take some much-needed personal time at home in the later day. You need to keep it together, if possible. Tonight: Stay anchored. BORN TODAY Sen. Mitt Romney (1947), singer/guitarist James Taylor (1948), baseball player Darryl Strawberry (1962)

JBER’s oldest K9 retires after 8 year career By Madeline McGee THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska — After nearly eight years of military service, the oldest military working dog at Joint Base ElmendorfRichardson will, for the first time, become somebody’s pet. Military Working Dog Kimba, an 11-year-old Belgian Malinois serving with JBER’s 673rd Security

Forces Squadron, retired Friday in a ceremony attended by four of her canine comrades. Her career had included everything from foot patrols of the base to drug detection to demonstration patrols. In her eight year career at JBER, Kimba has been assigned to seven different handlers and hit on 32 narcotics finds, officials said. Her most recent handler, Staff Sgt. Christopher Bennett, called her “the best

ron, called Kimba his “favourite,” assuring all the other canines present that “you guys will all get your chance from now on.” “She probably doesn’t know what’s going on, but maybe she will reflect in a few years on the service that she’s provided,” Zeigler said. “She’s going to a good home. Now she can get up on the couch and have a blast.” Military working dogs are placed for adoption

when they retire, and Kimba will live out her retirement in the home of Capt. Luke Restad, a member of the squadron. Bennett formally handed Kimba’s leash off to Restad at Friday’s ceremony. “I had some openings in the house and a lot of big backyard, so I just wanted to be able to give back to Kimba for what she’s given to the Air Force,” Restad said. He said Kimba has been

Out of about 2,500 tested for military service every year, about 750 are selected for rigorous training. An additional quarter drop out before completing the training. Lt. Col.

Restad doesn’t have any other pets, which is ideal because military working dogs don’t have much opportunity to socialize with other pets during their service, he said. When asked whether he had any advice for Restad, Bennett said, “patience.” “Definitely watch your fingers when you’re giving her toys, because she does tend to like to nip.”
