In the news Anchor Point man killed in crash An Anchor Point man died this week when his truck crashed near Moose Pass. Alaska State Troopers report that Marc Roderick, 46, died on Wednesday. He was driving a 2007 Kenworth truck near Mile 33 of the Seward Highway close to Moose Pass when the vehicle went off the road. Roderick had been pulling a trailer with an excavator on it behind the truck, troopers wrote in an online dispatch report. “The vehicle left the snowy roadway and struck a rock wall,” the dispatch states. “The excavator came forward and crushed the cab of the truck.” Roderick was pronounced dead on the scene. His family has been notified. An investigation into what caused the crash is ongoing, according to the trooper dispatch. — Homer News

Young asks for suicide inquiry at military base FAIRBANKS (AP) — Alaska Rep. Don Young asked the Army surgeon general to investigate suicides at a military base. Young wrote to Lt. Gen. Nadja West requesting an inquiry into suicides at Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks, The Daily News Miner reported Tuesday. West is the surgeon general and commanding general of the Army Medical Command. Fairbanks television station KTVF reported Thursday that there have been four confirmed suicide deaths of Fort Wainwright soldiers between 2018 and 2019. Three of those took deaths place at the base, located 363 miles north of Anchorage. The Republican congressman asked West to send a team to investigate a number of mental health issues at the headquarters of the U.S. Army Garrison Alaska. "This team's assessment could be critical in combating the scourge of suicide, by providing us with a far more detailed analysis of mental health services, their usage, driving and mitigating factors of these suicides, unit assessments, and much more," Young wrote to West.

Senate rebukes Trump on border emergency Soldotna Murkowski joins Republican defectors to block declaration By LISA MASCARO, ALAN FRAM and CATHERINE LUCEY Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In a stunning rebuke, a dozen defecting Republicans joined Senate Democrats Thursday to block the national emergency that President Donald Trump declared so he could build his border wall with Mexico. The rejection capped a week of confrontation with the White House as both parties in Congress strained to exert their power in new ways. The 59-41 tally, following the Senate’s vote a day earlier to end U.S. involvement

in the war in Yemen, promised to force Trump into the first vetoes of his presidency.

Trump had warned against both actions. Moments after Thursday’s vote, the presi-

dent tweeted a single word of warning: “VETO!” Two years into the Trump era, a defecting dozen Republicans, pushed along by Democrats, showed a willingness to take that political risk. Twelve GOP senators, including the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, Mitt Romney of Utah, joined the dissent over the emergency declaration order that would enable the president to seize for the wall billions of dollars Congress intended elsewhere. “The Senate’s waking up a little bit to our responsibilities,” said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., who said the

The Kenai Peninsula Borough unanimously passed a resolution at the March 5 borough meeting to support modifying two bills that would allow the state to retain tax funds

from borough oil and gas properties. Senate Bill 57 and House Bill 59 would repeal the levy of tax by municipalities on oil and gas properties and repeal the credit for municipal payments against the state levy of tax on oil and gas properties.

If passed, the state legislation would provide an estimated tax revenue of $450 million to the state next fiscal year, according to the resolution. Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce and Assembly Vice President Dale Bagley introduced the resolution,

which encourages amending SB 57 and HB 59 to allow municipalities to levy oil and gas property tax up to 15 mills. The state currently levies an annual oil and gas property tax of 20 mills. Municipalities are able to levy taxes up to

The results are official. The Soldotna field house bond failed, but the city council is exploring ways to keep the project alive. At Wednesday’s city council meeting, the council passed a resolution certifying the election results with 363 ‘no’ votes to 345 ‘yes’ votes. “I think that, obviously, we were all disappointed in the results of this,” said Mayor Nels Anderson, who said he would like to learn from this election and put the bond back to a ballot with a more positive campaign behind it. “I have heard all sorts of oddball reasons for why people did not vote for this … The bottom line is if this was a resounding defeat, I would leave it

That’s nearly $8 billion lost over 10 years. The next 10-year census will be conducted next year.

JUNEAU — An analysis on whether a major liquefied natural gas project is economically viable is expected to be complete within the next two months, a top adviser to Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy said Thursday. Brett Huber said Dunleavy’s position has been that the project has to make sense for the state and be judged on the economics. Huber is with the Republican governor at an energy conference in Texas. During a call with reporters Thursday, Dunleavy said one reason for attending the conference was to gauge investor interest in the project, which he said was lacking. Alaska for years has pursued a gas project, seeing it as a way to help shore up state revenues, create jobs

Low census response loses Alaska billions By BEN HOHENSTATT Juneau Empire

Every 10 years, Alaskans leave millions if not billions of dollars on the table. U.S. Census Bureau specialists said Alaska is historically the least responsive state to the decennial — 10year — census with only 64 percent of its estimated population responding in the most recent census year 2010. The national response rate was 72 percent, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. While the national response rate climbed by 5 percentage points between 2000 and 2010, Alaska’s response rate fell by 3 percentage points during that time. Myrna Gardner, tribal partnership specialist for the

Census Bureau, said because the census is used to determine distribution for federal funds, every 1 percent

of Alaskans (about 7,500 people) who don’t respond to the census equates to $22,192,500 less per year for

Advocacy group pushes measure barring police sexual contact By BRIAN MAZUREK Peninsula Clarion

The Alaska Legislature may once again consider a measure that would make it illegal for officers to have sexual contact with sex workers before arresting them. In 2017, two bills — HB 73 and SB 112 — were introduced on the issue, but were met with pushback from local law enforcement agencies, including Anchorage Police Department. An Alaska-based advocacy group, Community United for Safety and Protection (CUSP), was the main proponent for the

legislation in 2017, and this year CUSP is back in the fight. Activists from CUSP held a meeting at the Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna on Monday where they laid out their plan to remove legal gray area from the Alaska criminal code on sexual contact between police officers and those they are arresting. Terra Burns, an advocate with CUSP who led Monday’s meeting, said that CUSP is pushing for an amendment to a House bill currently under consideration — HB 52 — that would make it illegal for police to have sexual contact or sexual penetration

during an investigation. HB 52 is the House companion bill to SB 35 and would update the criminal code around sexual assault in various ways. SB 35 was introduced by Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s office and includes eliminating marriage as a defense in sexual assault cases, classifying sending unwanted pictures of genitalia as second-degree harassment, and requiring anyone registered as a sex offender in another state to also register in Alaska upon moving here. On Friday, the public will have the opportunity to testify on HB 52, and CUSP is urging people to

Bill would make permanent Alaska Native Heritage Month By ALEX MCCARTHY Juneau Empire

Former Gov. Bill Walker issued multiple proclamations declaring November as Alaska Native Heritage Month, but those proclamations didn’t do anything permanent. Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska President Chalyee Éesh Richard Peterson said he appreciated having the recognition and the chance to get more exposure for tribes around the state. Still, it didn’t feel like quite enough. “It’s important for us to be able to put a positive light on the Native

population of Alaska,” Peterson said in an interview Wednesday. “It’s meant a great deal that our previous governor’s done that, but even then, I asked in some of my own speeches for a permanent recognition, a more formal recognition.” On Wednesday, two senators proposed a bill that would make it permanent. Sens. Elvi GrayJackson, D-Anchorage, and Donny Olson, D-Golovin, introduced Senate Bill 86, which establishes Alaska Native Heritage Month permanently as November. The bill now begins its journey through the legislative process, and

chamber had become “a little lazy” as an equal branch of government. “I think the value of these last few weeks is to remind the Senate of our constitutional place.” Many senators said the vote was not necessarily a rejection of the president or the wall, but protections against future presidents — namely a Democrat who might want to declare an emergency on climate change, gun control or any number of other issues. “This is constitutional question, it’s a question about the balance of power that is core to our constitution,” Romney said. “This is not about the president,” he added. “The president can certainly express his views as he has and individual sena-

Larry Persily, a former federal co-ordinator of Alaska gas pipeline projects, in an interview said that Walker was “very sincere in his belief that this is essential to Alaska’s future and that we need to keep trying harder.” But he said the market has changed. “Economically, I don’t know anyone in the industry who thinks the thing is viable at the moment. Not just economically,” Persily said. “We don’t have investors or partners. We don’t really have firm gas sale contracts for the life of the project.” He said it’s good that an analysis is being done and sees value in the project at least completing the environmental review it is undergoing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

tors can express theirs.” Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who joined the contingent of Republicans in support of the resolution ending the national emergency declaration, issued a statement Thursday afternoon defending the vote. ”I take very seriously my oath to uphold the Constitution, and my respect for the balance within the separation of powers. Article 1 provides that the power to appropriate lies with the legislative branch. When the executive branch goes around the express intention of Congress on matters within its jurisdic-

tion, we must speak up or legislative acquiescence will erode our constitutional authority,” Murkowski said. “We can and must address the President’s very legitimate concerns over border security, but we must not do it at the expense of ceding Congress’ power of the purse.” Thursday’s vote was the first direct challenge to the 1976 National Emergencies Act, just as Wednesday’s on Yemen was the first time Congress invoked the decades-old War Powers Act to try to rein in a president. Seven Repub-

licans joined Democrats in halting U.S. backing for the Saudi Arabia-led coalition in the aftermath of the kingdom’s role in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Even though there’s not likely to be enough numbers to override a veto, the votes nevertheless sent a message from Capitol Hill. “Today’s votes cap a week of something the American people haven’t seen enough of in the last two years,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, “both parties in the United States Congress standing up to Donald Trump.”

Vernon H. Brown

April 27, 1941 - March 10, 2019 Vernon H Brown, 77, of Kenai passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 10th, 2019 after a bout with pneumonia. Vern was born April 27, 1941 in Ontario, Canada and adopted by Virginia and Vincent Brown. He and his brother Vaughan Brown were raised by Virginia and their stepfather David Jones. They lived in many areas of the United States while growing up, everywhere from Texas to Bermuda. After college, Vern enlisted in the United States Army, serving as an operating room technician at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. In 1969, Vern came up to Alaska for what was supposed to be a two week vacation, but he fell in love with the last frontier and never left. He lived in Kenai for 50 years, raising a family with his wife Helen, and working in the oilfield industry before becoming a bus driver. Vern drove school and charter buses for 20 years, including driving for the OIler’s baseball team. He enjoyed watching baseball, vacationing in Hawaii, and drinking coffee (but not necessarily in that order). His kindness and good humor, especially in the face of adversity, were an inspiration to many. He is survived by his brother Vaughan, daughter Amber, and son David. A celebration of life will be held in Vern’s honor at the Oilers Bingo Hall in Kenai, on Saturday, March 16th at 3pm. All who knew him are welcome to attend.

Virginia F Trenton

November 24, 1940 - March 10, 2019 Lifelong Alaska Native and Nikiski resident Virginia F. Trenton, 78, passed away Sunday, Mar. 10, 2019 at St. Elias Specialty Hospital in Anchorage. A panikhida service will be 12 noon Monday, Mar. 18, at Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai. Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Monday at Holy Assumption Russian Orthodox Church in Kenai. Burial will follow the service at the Monfor Cemetery. Archpriest Daniel Charles will officiate. A potluck will follow the burial at Tyotka’s Elder Center. Pallbearers will be Duane Reitter, David Kroto, Justin Trenton, David Pringle, Brandon Kroto, and Shon O’Brien. Honorary pallbearers will be Eugene, Roy and Freddy Trenton, Ted Kroto, and Brian and Kevin Trenton. Virginia was born Nov. 24, 1940 in Kenai. She graduated from high school and went to nursing school. She lived in Tyonek from 1968-88 and Nikiski from 1988 until her passing. She worked for the Native Village of Tyonek, the Dena’ina Clinic and the Kenaitze Indian Tribe. She was a member of the church and was also CIRI Elder Shareholder of the Year in 2011. Virginia enjoyed crocheting, watching game shows, and spending time with family. Her family wrote, “She was a mother, grandma, aunt and best friend. No one left her house without a fully belly and some stayed for a longtime. The happiness of her kids, grandkids, family and friends was what made her happy. Her love of helping others led her into the medical field, a job she cherished until she retired. Christmas and Sunday family dinners were her favorite times, seeing all her kids and grandkids together. Even until the end, when we talked to her, all she cared about was others happiness. She is now watching down on us with our father, siblings, kids and grandkids. My mother would not want you to be sad. Remember all the happy times. Honor her by spending time with family and friends.” Virginia was preceded in death by her husband, David, daughter, BK, grandsons, Ted and Adam, granddaughter, Anastasia, and 11 siblings. She is survived by her sons, Roy Trenton, Eugene Trenton and Harry “Freddy” Trenton; daughter, Julie Murray, all of Nikiski; son-in-law, Ted Kroto, Sr.; grandchildren, Rachel Toney and husband, James, Sara Murray, Sherrie Reitter and husband, Duane, Adrianna Trenton, and Marjorie Trenton, all of Nikiski, Dyann Wik of Ohio, Ivory Trenton of Nikiski, Justin Trenton of Tyonek, David Kroto and wife, Marie, and Vanessa Pringle and husband, David, all of Wasilla; great-grandkids, Rain, Aaron, Aurora, Adam, Paige, Daniel, Brandon and Lillian Kroto, Katherine Velzor, Joyce, Lalaith, Anastasia, Isaiah and Rachel Trenton, Juliet Reitter and Edgar and Henry Toney; plus many other extended family members. Memorial donations may be sent to Adrianna Trenton, P.O. Box 8658, Nikiski, AK 99635. Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.

lies, Section 8 Housing choice vouchers, Title I grants and special education grants. Gardner said it’s particularly notable that so much funding is being left on the table amid concerns about proposed cuts to the state’s budget. “It’s mind-boggling,” Gardner said after her presentation. “We all know what it takes to live here. We’re the masters of our own fate.” Census data also affects things such as the number of seats a state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and redistricting, specialists said. Barbara Miranda, partnership specialist for the Census Bureau, said small, predominantly Alaska Native villages in Southeast Alaska tend to be even less responsive than the rest of the state with response rates in places like Klawock and Hydaburg near or even below 50 percent. Cities and boroughs didn’t do that much better, according to the data. While Juneau had the best response rate in the state at 75 percent, Haines had a 46 percent response rate and Kenai Peninsula 52 percent. Gardner said she understood some of that comes from a mistrust of the government or concerns that information shared could land respondents in trouble with landlords or housing authorities. She emphasized that those who collect data for the census are not allowed to share personal identifying information under penalties including prison

and/or a $250,000 fine. Gardner said the Census Bureau also attempts to recruit trusted locals to collect data and visit homes to help reduce concern. She said wages start at $28 per hour and applications are now open at census.gov/ jobs. Alaska’s geography and low population density also make the state tough to count, Miranda and Gardner said. There are some plans in place to combat that. In remote parts of the state, census forms will be left at residences’ doors beginning in January 2020. Those will be among the first census materials distributed in the nation, the specialists said. In more populated parts of Southeast, including Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan, census forms will be delivered by mail. For the first time ever, this year people will have the option to respond to those mailed forms early and online beginning March 23, 2020, Miranda said. Instructions for how to do that will be included in the mailed materials. How people fill out their responses also matters for demogrpahics, such as getting an accurate count of Alaska Native households. Gardner offered insight into how to ensure a household is counted as Alaska Native. “If you live in a mixed household, if the first person you put there is non-Native, then you’re counted as nonNative,” Gardner said. “Keep that in mind when you’re doing your survey if you want your household to be counted as Native.”

What Others Say

Enforce gun laws already on the books Gary Martin was exactly the kind

of person that gun control background checks — a federal system now 25 years old — was designed to catch. It failed. Again. In Mississippi in 1994, Martin stabbed his girlfriend with a kitchen knife, beat her with a baseball bat, and warned “we are all going to die” if she left him. He should have never been able to buy a gun after that. But many years later, shopping for a gun in Illinois, Martin lied about his criminal past, and a federal background check missed his felony aggravated assault conviction and prison term in Mississippi for attacking his girlfriend. Martin bought himself a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber handgun. Illinois authorities later discovered the error and revoked Martin’s firearm permit. But all that happened next was a letter from the state police telling him to give up his gun. Despite the state’s tough gun laws, he didn’t. Instead, in February, as he was being fired from a warehouse job in Aurora, Martin used his Smith & Wesson to kill five co-workers and wound five police officers before being shot to death. Last week, two important pieces of gun control legislation passed the House of Representatives. One closes the so-called gun show loophole by requiring universal background checks, an idea favored by 85 percent of Americans. The other extends the background review period from three days to 10, allowing more time for disqualifying records to be found. Both bills have an unlikely future in the Republican-controlled Senate. But improvements of any kind will ultimately fall short when existing laws are not vigorously applied. Americans can hardly be expected to get behind new gun laws when authorities keep bungling old ones. The Brady Law of 1993, mandating the criminalbackground check, has never been adequately enforced. (The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, administered by the FBI, was established in 1998 in response to Brady.) Nearly 1.5 million people have been denied firearms under the system. But unlawful purchases still occur because agencies fail to provide NICS with necessary records or don’t follow up when mistakes are made. And people keep dying. The Air Force failed to notify NICS about the criminal record of a discharged airman who then bought an assault-style rifle and killed 26 people at a Texas church in 2017. Travis Reinking’s guns were taken away in 2017 after a White House trespassing incident. Police gave them to his father, and investigators said Reinking later used one of them to allegedly murder four random people at a Waffle House near Nashville last year. A report last year found 112,000 cases in 2017 where people lied about their backgrounds to buy a gun, a potential felony. Only 12 cases were prosecuted. Of the 10,818 people in Illinois like Martin who had their gun licenses revoked last year, more than 8,000 kept their illegal guns. According to the Chicago Tribune, 10 people were arrested for the offense. Some progress has been made. Last year, Congress passed legislation offering incentives to state and local agencies to improve NICS compliance. But the Justice Department told The Wall Street Journal that states have yet to submit millions of records to the FBI. Federal record submissions have increased by 400 percent, but a requirement that military service branches like the Air Force do a better job of reporting criminal backgrounds has not been met. The Department of Homeland Security has also failed to abide by the law. The nation is awash in firearms. The least that federal, state and local agencies can do is enforce existing laws preventing the violent and the mentally ill from acquiring guns. — USA Today on gun control, March 6

Don’t break up Big Tech

The worst ideas in Washington are often bipartisan. Big Tech is about to learn this lesson, if it hasn’t already. Elizabeth Warren is out with a headline-grabbing proposal to break up Big Tech companies, the sort of overly ambitious government plan that once would have engendered knee-jerk Republican opposition. Not anymore. Who says we all can’t get along? When the senator tweeted her (understandable) objection that Facebook had taken down her ads attacking Facebook and other tech companies, Ted Cruz agreed that the companies have too much power. Tech is caught in a right-left pincer. Conservatives don’t like these companies because they are owned and operated by sanctimonious Silicon Valley liberals subject to the worst sort of groupthink. Progressives don’t like them because they are colossal profitmaking enterprises. That’s why there is some chance Washington might get together and, along the lines Warren proposes, effectively outlaw the business models of some of the most successful and iconic American companies. Warren’s idea to cleave off the platforms of the tech companies and have them run as “platform utilities” separate from the rest of their business is unworkable and is justified by a series of errors and misjudgments. It’s not true, as Warren asserts, that the antitrust suit against Microsoft in the 1990s opened up the space for Google and Facebook to thrive. Microsoft never got the internet and left the space open for Google and Facebook all by itself, as often happens

with a large incumbent wedded to its business model. She charges that the tech companies use mergers to limit competition and cites Facebook’s Rich Lowry acquisition of WhatsApp. It’s hard to discern the harm here. When the social network bought it, WhatsApp was available for a fee. Now it’s free, and more people use it than ever. What’s the problem? She calls out Google for allegedly killing off its competitors by burying them in its searches. It’s not obvious that Google actually does this, although its search business inherently involves constantly making choices to try to best serve what people want to see. No government regulator is going to improve Google’s searches, or is qualified to even try. Warren’s proposal is obviously formulated without taking any account of the interests of consumers, who are the ones who made the tech companies so large. Why does Google provide for free a tool without which it’s impossible to imagine contemporary life? Because it can monetize it with advertising. Without the advertising, which Warren insists should be a separate business, Google has no incentive to devote engineers to improving its search engine. By the same token, no one will welcome iPhones that no longer come with or sell Apple apps. And would

people really appreciate having to go to two different Amazons, one just a platform, one selling Amazon products? This is all silly, as are the mergers that Warren pledges to reverse, including Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods. Amazon doesn’t have anything close to a monopoly in food retail. Rather than taking over the sector, it’s spurring investment and innovation. The nation’s largest supermarket chain, Kroger, was slated to increase its spending on investment 200 percent in 2018. The tech giants aren’t stand-pat companies. Amazon alone spent more than $22 billion on investment in 2017. The development of autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence and voice recognition wouldn’t be nearly as advanced if it weren’t for the research of the tech companies. The behemoth of yesteryear, General Electric, isn’t making these investments. None of this is to deny genuine concerns about tech companies. They need rules for content that honor the spirit of the First Amendment, and perhaps there should be tighter regulations around privacy. But any real offenses should be addressed with fixes directed at specific conduct, rather than with a massive politically imposed reorganization. That’s a very bad idea, and if you had any doubt, watch it get a respectful hearing from both sides in Washington. Rich Lowry can be reached via email at comments.lowry@nationalreview.com.

Carbon offsets could make a difference In early March, Alaskans Know Climate Change purchased carbon offsets for the Kachemak Bay Conservation Center. This is an inexpensive marketbased solution to address the contribution we have made, over the course of one year, through fuel and electricity consumption, to global warming. The procedure is simple. We added up last year’s kilowatt-hours (kWh) from our Homer Electric Association receipts and one year’s worth of heating fuel. The building used 16,631 kWh’s worth of electricity and 1,021 gallons of fuel. By using the EPA’s carbon calculator, we discovered that the building is on the hook for 20.9 metric tons of greenhouse gasses. There is nothing that can be done to reduce the carbon footprint from last year. But, we can make sure that that amount does not enter into the atmosphere elsewhere by purchasing carbon offsets. There are many certified carbon offset brokers. Each broker offers a variety of projects to purchase for individuals, nonprofits, business, churches or others who are concerned about addressing their contribution to global warming. The carbon offset we chose is a project that captures fugitive methane and uses it to produce energy. This is located on the Southern Ute Tribe’s land. Over 60,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions are eliminated every year by this project. Without voluntary support, they would have no way to finance

by example regarding greenhouse gas accountability. Last fall, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released their latest report. Not long after, the federal government released the National Climate Assessment, which was followed by the “Economic Effects of Climate Change in Alaska” report by ISER. Each of these point to the same horrible future that awaits us — especially our children — if we don’t get serious about reducing our greenhouse gas output. Despite all the education, 2018 set a new all-time record. Last year, our civilization produced over 40 billion tons of greenhouse gasses. This is suicidal behavior. Obviously, what this little building produces is a drop in the bucket, but if others in our community begin to take this step it will start to make a difference. Buying carbon offsets is an inexpensive and meaningful way to address our contribution to global warming. For very little money you can feel good in knowing that you are supporting projects that are keeping greenhouse gasses out of the system. Thank you to everyone who attended this presentation and to all of you out there who are learning how to do your part. Our children and their children won’t forget it.

this methane capture and the potent greenhouse gas would continue to escape into the atmosphere. There is tremendous value in supporting developments like this and they are remarkably inexpensive. The venture we supported is the most expensive one our broker offers — $13 a metric ton. The cost to offset the Conservation Center’s carbon footprint for one year was $275. The goal, however, is to find ways to make reductions. From now on, we will do this type of audit every year. We will strive to find ways to reduce our footprint. It is unlikely that we can transform this building to carbon neutral in one or even five years, but this first step helps us set goals. We want to be paying less every year for carbon offsets by improving our energy consumption, identifying and replacing appliances with more efficient ones, using renewable energy, and change how the building is heated, for example.

Nation/World Anguished families of crash victims find nothing to bury By MULUGETA AYENE and CARA ANNA Associated Press

HEJERE, Ethiopia — It was too much to bear. She feared she would have nothing of her loved one, no body, no remains to bury. She took handfuls of dirt and flung it in her own face, overcome. More families arrived on Thursday at the site of the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people. They came with the hope that they could bring some trace of their loved ones home. Some fell to their knees in grief when they learned there was nothing left. Others hurled themselves forward, wailing, or staggered in relatives’ arms. The mourning was mixed with frustration. For some, their beliefs dictated they must have something to bury. “Big families, a lot of people and the full Israeli nation is waiting for these remains and we will not go out of Ethiopia until we find the remains to bury them,” said Moshi Biton of Israel, who lost his brother, Shimon Daniel Re’em Biton.

“Because if not, they will stay missing for the rest of the life and we cannot do that in our religion.” Some Muslim families fretted. A body must be buried as soon as possible. In the Ethiopian Orthodox religion, bodies are buried a day after death. On Wednesday the family of a young crew member on the doomed flight, Sara Gebremichael, held a religious ceremony for her photograph. They had nothing more. Many of the grieving gathered at the rural, dusty crash site outside Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa. The dead came from 35 countries. Some families, including that of the flight’s senior pilot, Capt. Yared Getachew, came bearing large framed photographs of the dead. In one, a victim wore a graduate’s cap and gown, a source of immense pride. Others arriving wore black T-shirts printed with a photo in remembrance. They held sticks of incense, the flames flaring in the wind. One man held a tiny, torn scrap of document showing a photo of one of the dead.

In the background, searchers carrying large clear plastic bags continued to move slowly through the rubble, looking for more. Some relatives at the scene expressed frustration, saying authorities were not sharing the information they badly needed. An airline spokesman on Wednesday said some remains had been found and were in a freezer awaiting the forensic DNA work needed for identifications. On Thursday it was no longer clear how long that

work, once estimated at five days or more, would take. Israel’s consul to Ethiopia, Opher Dach, suggested the remains would be sent to a laboratory Britain. The airline, overwhelmed with requests, announced it would take no more questions from reporters and would post any developments on social media and its website. Even at an airline briefing for families in Addis Ababa some tearful relatives stormed out, demanding more.

Brextension: UK lawmakers vote to seek delay of EU departure By JILL LAWLESS and DANICA KIRKA Associated Press

LONDON — In a stalemate over Brexit, British politicians have chosen to delay it. After weeks of political gridlock, Parliament voted Thursday to seek to postpone the country’s departure from the European Union, a move that will likely avert a chaotic withdrawal on the scheduled exit date of March 29. With Brexit due in 15 days and no divorce deal yet approved, the House of Commons voted 412-202 to ask the bloc to put off Britain’s exit until at least June 30. The vote gives Prime Minister Theresa May some breathing space, but is still humbling for a leader who has spent two years telling Britons they were leaving the bloc on March 29. Power to approve or reject the extension lies with the EU, which has signaled that it will only allow a delay if Britain either approves a divorce deal or makes a fundamental shift in its approach to Brexit.

In a historic irony, almost three years after Britain voted to leave the EU, its future is now in the bloc’s hands. May is likely to ask EU leaders for an extension at a March 21-22 summit of the bloc in Brussels. The European Commission said the bloc would consider any request, “taking into account the reasons for and duration of a possible extension.” May was forced to consider a Brexit delay after lawmakers twice rejected her EU divorce deal and

also ruled out, in principle, leaving the bloc without an agreement. Withdrawing without a deal could mean major disruptions for businesses and people in the U.K. and the 27 remaining countries. By law, Britain will leave the EU on March 29, with or without a deal, unless it cancels Brexit or secures a delay. Thursday could have been worse for May. Lawmakers rejected an attempt to strip her of control over the Brexit agenda. They defeated by the narrowest

Beto O’Rourke enters 2020 race attempting bipartisan appeal

BURLINGTON, Iowa — Democrat Beto O’Rourke jumped into the 2020 presidential race Thursday, shaking up the already packed field and pledging to win over voters from both major parties as he tries to translate his political celebrity into a formidable White House bid. After months of ignoring states that vote early in the presidential nominating process, the former Texas congressman made his first trip to Iowa — popping into a coffee shop in the town of Keokuk while many cable networks aired live cover-

age. He took questions about everything from his support of federal legalization of marijuana to abortion rights to the possibility of a universal basic income, all while characteristically waving his arms frequently and gesticulating fervently. It was the kind of highenergy, off-the-cuff style that made him a sensation in Texas, but O’Rourke also was clear that he doesn’t believe in strict immigration policies — drawing a policy distinction that could allow him to clash openly with President Donald Trump on the issue. Trump personally took note of O’Rourke’s gyrations.

Around the World

“Well, I think he’s got a lot of hand movement,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. He added: “Is he crazy or is that just how he acts?” Until he challenged Republican Sen. Ted Cruz last year, O’Rourke was little known outside his hometown of El Paso. But the Spanish-speaking, 46-yearold former punk rocker used grassroots organizing and social media savvy to mobilize young voters and minorities and get within 3 percentage points of winning in the nation’s largest red state. “This is going to be a positive campaign that seeks to bring out the very best from every single one of us,” O’Rourke said in a video announcement before dawn on Thursday, his wife seated next to him on a couch. “We saw the power of this in Texas.” After weeks of gleefully teasing an announcement, O’Rourke now must prove whether his zeal for personal contact with voters will resonate on a much larger stage than Texas. For all the buzz around him, the former three-term congressman hasn’t demonstrated much skill in domestic or foreign policy. And, as a white man, he’s entering a field that has been celebrated for its diverse roster of women and people of color.

of margins — 314-312 — an opposition attempt let Parliament choose an alternative to May’s rejected divorce deal and force the government to negotiate it with the EU. Lawmakers also voted against holding a second Brexit referendum — at least for now. By a decisive 334-85 vote, they defeated a motion that called for another vote by the public on whether to stay in the EU or leave. Campaigners for a new referendum are divided over whether the time is right to push for a second Brexit vote. The vote doesn’t prevent lawmakers from trying again later to get Parliament’s support for another referendum. Despite the rebuffs and the political chaos that have weakened her authority, May has signaled she will try a third time to get backing for her agreement next week. She is seeking to win over Brexit-backing opponents in her own party and its Northern Irish political ally, the Democratic Unionist Party, who fear the deal keeps Britain too closely tied to the EU.

SAN FRANCISCO — Two college students have filed a lawsuit against the University of Southern California, Yale University and other colleges where prosecutors have accused rich and famous parents of paying bribes to ensure their children’s admission. The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in federal court in San Francisco and alleges the students were denied a fair opportunity for admission. Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods claimed they were denied a fair opportunity to apply to Yale and USC. The lawsuit also named the University of California, Los Angeles, Wake Forest University, the University of San Diego, the University of Texas at Austin, Georgetown University and Stanford University. The alleged scheme gave unqualified students admission to highly selective universities, said the plaintiffs, who are both currently students at Stanford. “Each of the universities took the students’ admission application fees while failing to take adequate steps to ensure that their admissions process was fair and free of fraud, bribery, cheating and dishonesty,” the plaintiffs said in the lawsuit. Charges were announced earlier this week against 50 people, including coaches and dozens of parents, in a scheme where prosecutors have said wealthy parents paid to rig standardized scores and bribed sports coaches to get their children into elite universities. The colleges named have cast themselves as victims of the scheme, and have moved to distance themselves from the coaches accused of involvement. “We understand that the government believes that illegal activity was carried out by individuals who went to great lengths to conceal their actions from the university,” USC officials said in a statement earlier this week. Yale officials said earlier this week they were cooperating with the investigation. “As the indictment makes clear, the Department of Justice believes that Yale has been the victim of a crime perpetrated by its former women’s soccer coach,” Yale spokesman Tom Conroy said.

Brazil says goodbye to shooting victims, questions mount SUZANO, Brazil — Classmates, friends and relatives of the victims of a mass school shooting hugged, cried and prayed on Thursday as several thousand attended a wake in this devastated Sao Paulo suburb while authorities worked to uncover what drove two former students to attack with a gun, crossbows and axes. Before 17-year-old Guilherme Taucci Monteiro and 25-year-old Henrique de Castro launched the school assault Wednesday, killing seven, police said they shot and killed a man who owned a used-car dealership nearby. What happened next at the K-12 school, partially caught on surveillance camera footage at the school’s entrance and widely distributed in Brazil, was stomachchurning. It showed Monteiro entering the building and shooting several people in the head as they tried to run away. De Castro followed him, first striking wounded people with an ax and then swinging it wildly while scores of students ran past him. De Castro then armed his bow and walked further into the school. The dead included five students, a teacher and a school administrator. Nine others were wounded in the attack, including seven still hospitalized Thursday. “I couldn’t sleep. I have two children in school and they are about the age of the victims,” said Wanda Augusta, a 46-year-old homemaker attending the wake. “If only we could have identified the difficulties of these boys” before the attack, said Rossieli Soares, the state education secretary, who attended the wake at a volleyball arena. “This is a problem in our society.” —The Associated Press

classifying these practices as third- and fourth-degree sexual assault. The public testimony starts at 1:30 p.m. and people can call 1-844-586-9085 to testify. When similar legislation was being debated back in 2017, the Department of Law sent a letter to the state Legislature clarifying that it is “neither legal nor acceptable

for a law enforcement officer to engage in sexual conduct with a person that that officer is investigating.” While there is no specific statute that defines this practice as a crime, the letter mentioned several other criminal statutes that an officer violates by engaging in sexual conduct, including sexual assault

that involves coercion. Police departments may also have administrative guidelines that either discourage this as conduct unbecoming of a police officer or not demonstrative of good “moral character,” which is a statutory requirement to be a police officer in the state of Alaska. A copy of the DOL’s letter is available on CUSP’s website.

it shows residents that legislators care about them, she said. “I think the best way to let our community know that we give a damn is to do things like this,” Gray-Jackson said. She said she was honored that Olson, who is Alaska Native, co-sponsored the bill with her. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush problaimed November as National American Indian Heritage and Alaska Native Heritage Month, which set the stage for Walker’s proclamations and this new bill. Peterson said it’s taken a long time for this to become permanent in Alaska, but

it’s better to happen later than never. “In a way it does (surprise me), what with the overwhelming Native population in Alaska, half the nation’s tribes being in Alaska,” Peterson said, “but I commend them for finally putting it forward.” Rosita Worl, president of Sealaska Heritage Institute, said in a statement to the Empire that this is a “progressive move” from GrayJackson and Olson and that she commended it. “Alaska’s cultural diversity is one of the state’s richest resources and this action by the Legislature is a great statement to make to our citizens and nation,” Worl said. Gray-Jackson said it’s a priority for her to get monthly recognitions such as this secured in state statute instead of leaving it up to year-by-year proclama-

tions. During her nine years on the Anchorage Assembly, she said, she took the same approach. She said she promised herself that if she earned a spot in the Alaska Legislature, she would carry that desire on. The bill was introduced the same day that Olson took time on the Senate floor to recognize Iditarod champion Peter Kaiser, who became the first-ever person of Yup’ik descent to win the race. Honoring acheivements like that, Olson said in a press release, is what Alaska Native Heritage Month is all about. “Shedding light on the accomplishments of Alaska Natives showcases the foundation of this state,” Olson said in the release. “Each recognition celebrates our history, culture, and language, and continues our efforts in preserving and revitalizing our way of life for generations to come.”

Today in History Today is Friday, March 15, the 74th day of 2019. There are 291 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 15, 44 B.C., Roman dictator Julius Caesar was assassinated by a group of nobles that included Brutus and Cassius. On this date: In 1493, Italian explorer Christopher Columbus arrived back in the Spanish harbor of Palos de la Frontera, two months after concluding his first voyage to the Western Hemisphere. In 1820, Maine became the 23rd state. In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson met with about 100 reporters for the first formal presidential press conference. In 1916, a U.S. expeditionary force led by Brig. Gen. John J. Pershing entered Mexico on an ultimately futile mission to capture Pancho Villa, whose raiders had attacked Columbus, New Mexico, killing 18 U.S. citizens. In 1919, members of the American Expeditionary Force from World War I convened in Paris for a three-day meeting to found the American Legion. In 1937, America’s first hospital blood bank was opened at Cook County Hospital in Illinois. In 1944, during World War II, Allied bombers again raided German-held Monte Cassino. In 1956, the Lerner and Loewe musical play “My Fair Lady,” based on Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion,” opened on Broadway. In 1977, the U.S. House of Representatives began a 90-day closed-circuit test to determine the feasibility of showing its sessions on television. The situation comedy “Three’s Company,” starring John Ritter, Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers, premiered on ABC-TV. In 1985, the first internet domain name, symbolics.com, was registered by the Symbolics Computer Corp. of Massachusetts. In 1998, CBS’ “60 Minutes” aired an interview with former White House employee Kathleen Willey, who said President Bill Clinton had made unwelcome sexual advances toward her in the Oval Office in 1993, a charge denied by the president. Dr. Benjamin Spock, whose child care guidance spanned half a century, died in San Diego at 94. In 2005, Former WorldCom chief Bernard Ebbers was convicted in New York of engineering the largest corporate fraud in U.S. history. (He was later sentenced to 25 years in prison.) Ten years ago: A chorus of outrage on Capitol Hill greeted news that some $165 million in executive bonuses were being paid by bailed-out insurance giant American International Group. The space shuttle Discovery was launched on a mission to the international space station that had been delayed five times. Mauricio Funes won El Salvador’s presidential election. Tony Award-winning actor Ron Silver died in New York City at age 62. Five years ago: Malaysia’s prime minister, Najib Razak, said a Malaysian jetliner missing for a week had deliberately diverted and continued flying for more than seven hours after severing contact with the ground, meaning it could have gone as far northwest as Kazakhstan or into the Indian Ocean’s southern reaches. Comedian David Brenner, 78, died in New York. One year ago: A pedestrian bridge that was under construction collapsed onto a busy Miami highway, crushing vehicles beneath massive slabs of concrete and steel; six people died and 10 were injured. The Trump administration accused Moscow of an elaborate plot to hack into America’s electric grid, factories, water supply and even air travel; the U.S. also targeted Russians with sanctions for alleged election meddling for the first time since President Donald Trump took office. Federal health officials took the first step to slash levels of addictive nicotine in cigarettes, a move designed to help smokers quit and prevent future generations from getting hooked. All seven service members aboard a U.S. helicopter were killed when the aircraft crashed in Iraq; officials said there were no indications that the crash had been caused by hostile fire.

was referred to the State Affairs Committee. This wasn’t a spur-ofthe-moment endeavor from Gray-Jackson, she said in an interview Wednesday. Last month, she introduced legislation to permanently make February Black History Month in Alaska. Confirming Alaska Native Heritage Month, she said, is in the same vein. Though bills like this might not do anything to address the biggest questions facing the Legislature such as the budget or Alaska’s rising crime rates,

Childlikeness vs. Childishness

V oices of F aith R ev . S tephen B rown

I attended a dinner recently in which there were a number of people who had never been together before. Two of the couples brought their young daughters, about 4 or 5 years old. There was an instant rapport between

them. Their eyes were wide with delight when they saw each other. Something about both of them being the same size and age brought them together like dear friends. During the dinner, there was the most wonderful background music of two little girls who were giggling and having a very good time. I wondered to myself, “when does that

change for many people?” “What would it take to be like those little girls again?” In childhood we must possess a quality that we can lose as we age, something that if we were to keep, we might find life so pleasurable and joyful and less complicated. It occurred to me once as I was reading the scripture, that Jesus often referred to

little children as examples of how we should act and behave toward one another. In each of these examples, He drew the attention to how we (the adults) should become like little children. This is a typical passage: Luke 9:46-48 Then a dispute arose among them as to which of them would be greatest. [47] And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a little child and set him by Him, [48] and said to them, “Whoever receives this little child in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me. For he who is least among you all will be great.” Isn’t it interesting that there doesn’t appear to be examples of Jesus telling little children to be like adults? I thought about this for some time and came to the conclusion that as we age, we can lose the ability to be childlike. There are two qualities among several that we often observe

in children, one positive and one negative. The positive, of course, is the childlikeness we have just mentioned. The negative quality is childishness. Somehow, we seem to be able to retain the childish qualities of selfishness, stubbornness, rebellion and the like, while losing the much more precious quality of childlikeness. We can’t be both at the same time. How would we characterize childlikeness? What have we lost as we have “grown up?” Childlikeness is the ability to not be cynical, to accept someone new regardless of race or physical traits, to find wonder in a dandelion and to be content with what we have. Do you remember life like that? What would it take to get us to revisit childlikeness? More important, what if many of us, in our families, jobs and communities rediscovered this lost quality? What kind of world would we live in? A better world, I believe.

It would be easy to illustrate what life would be like if we all acted in childish ways. Instead, wouldn’t it be better to take a chance on finding what has been lost and living with childlike joy once again? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the background of our lives were filled with the little girl giggles and the wonder of sunsets again? We can easily be discouraged from believing that it isn’t possible. Jesus says we can be childlike again and He will help us. As we live in a “who is the greatest?” culture and all the voices seem to be shouting that you have to “look out for number one,” we must listen carefully not to those voices but to the One who promises something different and something better. Take a chance and perhaps it will be your joy that makes music in the background. Rev. Stephen Brown has been the lead pastor at Kenai New Life Assembly for the past 30 years.

Birding: The universal outdoors activity

L

ike many imported Alaskans, I have a long list of outdoor activities I acquired after moving here in 1979: skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, dog mushing, shoveling snow and birding. Having been raised in Florida, it makes sense I didn’t learn snow- and cold-related activities until I arrived in the North. But birding? I could have taken up birding long ago. As it happens, Florida and Alaska have the exact same number of possible bird species on their official checklists — 525. Birding might be the most universal of all outdoor activities. You can look for birds most anywhere birds can be seen, which is pretty much anywhere on this planet. Even though I noticed birds and casually observed them in Florida, I didn’t become obsessed until I moved to Alaska. My transition from “guy who looks at birds” to “guy who buys good binoculars, 15 bird books and stares at dots on the mud flats for hours” started the summer of 1981 when I worked in Utqiagvik, then known as Barrow, and my second summer in Alaska. I’d gone there to work on an archaeological project. Our work day ran until 5 p.m., which meant that after dinner and with Utqiagvik’s midnight sun, I had hours to kill before going to bed. Located on the Arctic coast just south of Point Barrow, the settled area of Utqiagvik is high and dry ground surrounded by tundra, tussocks and marshes. That is to say, it’s excellent birding habitat. My archaeological worker friends and I took long hikes out onto the tundra just to explore, and it dawned on me that when I went hiking, by default I went birding. I’d stumble across snowy owls. Parasitic jaegers dive-bombed me when I got too close to their nests. Eiders swooped over the ocean. I didn’t keep a journal, I didn’t have a life list, and I didn’t even have a decent pair of binoculars, but I came to realize that if one hiked in Alaska, you saw birds, and the enjoyment of being outdoors would be enhanced by looking for birds, identifying them and understanding their place in nature. Since 1981, I have come to see birding as an activity that adds to the enjoyment of the outdoors as well as a pursuit in itself. One spring when my wife and I spent hours trying to figure out the origin of this odd winnowing sound we heard on Diamond Ridge — the snipe — I learned that birding also could be an aural activity. A lot of birds I observe I don’t necessarily see or even try to look for. I don’t need to see a hermit thrush to appreciate its flutelike call. I have never seen a northern saw-whet owl, but I hear its call often, like that of construction equipment backing up or a smoke alarm going off. Birding also has a temporal element. The movement of birds through our area, or the changes in activity of resident birds, tells the story of the changing of the seasons. I see bald eagles here in Homer almost every day. When the resident pair that has set up nests near the Lake Street and Sterling Highway stoplight returns, that will be a clear harbinger of spring. When the varied thrush starts its telephone-trill call, even if there’s 3 feet of snow still on the ground, I know dozens of songs from other species will soon fill up the morning and evening. In May and June, one of my fondest pleasures is to get up in the morning, let my dog out, and stand on the front porch trying to identify as many bird calls as See OUT, page A9

Brown Bears topple Magicians By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

The Kenai River Brown Bears defeated the Minnesota Magicians 3-1 on Thursday at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex in North American Hockey League play. With the victory, the Bears stay alive for the final playoff spot out of the Midwest Division. Kenai River moves to 20-27-3-2 and is 14 points behind the Janesville (Wisconsin) Jets for the final spot. Each team has eight games remaining. A win counts for two points. Minnesota falls to 31-19-2-0 and is four points behind the first-place Fairbanks Ice Dogs in the Midwest Division. Kenai River is now on a 8-5-1-0 run since a 1-9-0-1 stretch put the Bears behind in the playoff chase. “They played really well again tonight,” said Kenai River interim head coach Dan Bogdan after moving his record to 5-4-1-0. “(The Magicians) poured it on for a few minutes, but they stuck to the game plan and weathered the storm really well.” Eagle River’s Zach Krajnik scored in the first period on the power play for the Bears, assisted by Trey LaBarge and Connor Scahill. Minnesota came out pelting Kenai River goalie Gavin Enright in the second period, but Enright stood tall. Midway through the period, Andy Walker, assisted by Krajnik and Michael Spethmann, scored for a 2-0 game. “It helped tilt the ice back in our favor,” Bogdan said of the goal. John Keranen scored near the end of the second period for a 2-1 game, but Enright would keep a clean sheet the rest of the way. “He’s been playing consistently all season, especially lately,” Bogdan said of the goaltender. “I couldn’t be happier.” Spethmann, assisted by Krajnik, sealed the game with an empty-netter. Bogdan said Krajnik, Spethmann and Walker were all very good. All are uncommitted, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks hockey program had representatives at Thursday’s game. The series continues with 7:30 p.m. games

Nikolaevsk girls lose state title shot CIA girls, Warriors boys advance in conso play By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

The state dream expired Thursday morning for the Nikolaevsk Warriors at the Class 1A girls state basketball tournament at the Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage. Doomed with a slow start, Nikolaevsk was unable to dig itself out of a hole against third-seeded Tri-Valley, which advanced to the state semifinals for the first time in school history. The best Nikolaevsk can finish is fourth place, and that quest will start with an 8 a.m. semifinal against the Buckland Sissuani. Tri-Valley is headlined by one of the tallest 1A threats in sophomore center Rachel Cockman, who drubbed Nikolaevsk with 24 points and 23 rebounds, and had already tallied a double-double by halftime. Warriors head coach Bea Klaich praised her team for executing a strategy of holding down the rest of TriValley’s role players at the cost of leaving Cockman with a little more space. “I told them that Rachel’s going to score, and we’re going to live with that,” Klaich said. “But we’ve got to stop the role

players.” The plan helped Nikolaevsk stay within striking distance of Tri-Valley, but the Warriors were never close enough to topple the team. Elizabeth Fefelov, Nikolaevsk’s tall center, poured in 19 points to lead the Warriors while also bringing down six rebounds, while teammate Justina Fefelov notched 10 points, Sophia Klaich grabbed five boards and Markiana Yakunin swiped six steals. “I thought the girls played really hard, they never stopped pressing,” Klaich said. “It came down to not making our shots when we needed to.” Tri-Valley head coach Selena Dixon said the defensive versality helps her squad thrive on a bright stage like the state tournament and the changing schemes kept Tri-Valley ahead of the Warriors. “The girls are willing to move into whatever defense we need to, to take care of whatever team we come up against,” Dixon said. “We started in a 2-3 look, then decided to go full-court man. I knew that we could tire them down.” Tri-Valley jumped out to a 19-9 lead in the first quarSee BALL, page A9

Duke’s Williamson soars in return CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Zion Williamson said he never listened to the analysts who suggested he should forego the remainder of his college career at Duke and focus on the NBA. “I knew I was going to be back,” Williamson said. “Everybody has their right to their own opinion, but I knew I was coming back the whole time.” With each soaring dunk Thursday night, Williamson sent a resounding message to the rest of the college basketball world that he is back — and so are the Blue Devils. In his first game since a bizarre shoe blowout caused him almost six full games with a sprained knee, Williamson was electrifying, breaking a 66-year-old Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament record by going 13 of 13 from the field — with five soaring dunks —

and scoring 29 points to propel No. 5 Duke over Syracuse 84-72. “He was himself,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said of Williamson’s return. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim went a step further, calling Williamson a “different player” than he’s ever seen in his 50 years of coaching college basketball. He said Williamson is a stronger version of Charles Barkley and unstoppable in the low post. “He can do things that nobody has done in this game,” Boeheim said. “I mean Charles was close, but this guy’s bigger, stronger. And I mean he’s a crazy different type of player. There aren’t guys like him.” The Associated Press player and newcomer of the year in the ACC added 14 rebounds,

two assists and a block. Williamson’s night got off to a rousing start two minutes into the game when he stole a pass and drove the length of the floor before cocking his right hand back and throwing down a highlight-reel dunk that brought the crowd to its feet. He added three more soaring dunks in the first half — including one off an alley-oop pass from Barrett — and finished the first half with 21 points on 9-of-9 shooting and nine rebounds as Duke built a 34-28 lead. Williamson said he wasn’t trying to make a statement on his initial dunk, but only trying to help his team set the tone on defense. He also chuckled at the notion that his return was perfect, citing his 2 of 9 performance from the foul line.

ter, then pushed it to 24-11 halfway through the second, but both Fefelovs helped Nikolaevsk claw back in the second quarter with all nine team points. At halftime, the lead was 26-18 with Tri-Valley in front. Tri-Valley jumped out to a fast start, however, in the third quarter with a sevenpoint unanswered run to take a 33-18 advantage. That, combined with Nikolaevsk’s cold 17 percent shooting in the second half, made life tough on the Warriors. “I talked to the girls about offseason,” Klaich said. “If you want to be great, you have to work offseason. If you want to be mediocre, then don’t work offseason.” Cockman went down with a turned ankle early in the fourth quarter with Tri-Valley up 37-21, and during her absence Nikolaevsk was able to close the gap a bit to 37-27 with five minutes left in the game, but Cockman returned with 2:30 remaining to put a stop to the bleeding. “We definitely knew TriValley was respecting us when they put Rachel back in,” Klaich said. “I was glad to see her come back in.” Nikolaevsk boys 62, Lumen Christi 61, OT The Warrior boys survived another day in the Class 1A state consolation bracket with a wild overtime victory over familiar opponent Lumen Christi. Down three points late in regulation, Lumen Christi tied it on a 3-pointer by freshman Brenden Gregory with 2.1 seconds left to force overtime, then took a lead in the extra, four-minute period. But with two starters fouled out, Nikolaevsk senior Michael Trail took advantage

I can. After a long winter where the loudest sound is the wind roaring through the spruce forest, to hear the oh-dear-me call of the golden crowned sparrow brings reassurance that the world has survived and warmth has returned.

and put in the last two buckets for the Warriors, including the go-ahead shot with five seconds left on an inbounds play from Lukah Kalugin, which was enough to secure the victory. Survive and advance. “It gives me a little higher spirits than we had yesterday,” Trail said. “Today, we played like we usually do, and that’s all we can do.” Nikolaevsk will face Savoonga 11 a.m. Friday with a chance to play in Saturday’s consolation championship. Trail led the Warriors with 29 points and 17 rebounds, and took charge throughout by hitting 12 of 18 shots from the floor. Gregory, a Lumen Christi freshman, had a bigger game with 34 points on six 3-pointers, with five of those coming in the second half. Gregory gave the Archangels their first lead of the game with 1:44 left in regulation with consecutive treys for a 53-52 edge. Kalugin and Trail put the Warriors back in front 56-53 with three trips to the foul line, but Gregory had one more trick up his sleeve. Gregory pulled up from behind a wall of Nikolaevsk defenders and buried the gametying shot with 2.1 seconds left. Lumen took a 61-58 lead in overtime, thanks to a triple from Shon Nagel, but the Archangels found themselves in trouble when both starting players Daniel Bennett and Andrew Howard fouled out. “At first I was kind of nervous,” Trail said about the overtime situation. “But then I saw we had four minutes (in overtime) on the clock, and that’s a lot of time. Lot of points can be scored.” The late OT drama started when JD Mumey put a crucial block on Lumen’s Noah Cruz with just over a minute left, and Trail eventually made the payoff with a layup with 35 seconds left to close

the gap to 61-60. Nikolaevsk then found itself with the golden opportunity under its own basket. “I knew we had stronger inside presence,” said head coach Steve Klaich. “Even when we were down three, I kept telling them we just need a basket, we need to get inside and score, it doesn’t have to be a 3.” Klaich said the winning play offered several different options out of the inbounds play, but the first was the one to work — a simple pass from Kalugin to Trail at the baseline and the layup by Trail, who was able to use the most of his size and experience to muscle his way to the rim. Klaich said he thought about calling a timeout but did not want the Lumen defense to set itself. The decision to stay with the play paid off. “I gambled and my boys knew what I was thinking when I called it,” Klaich said. “Not having their big guy outside helped us.”

a $5,000 spotting scope, I do not plan my trips around birding festivals, and I am for dang sure not as crazy as Noah Stryker, who tried to see as many birds around the world in one year as he could (about 10,000, if you want to know). When I travel, I carry binoculars and bird guide, because birding also adds to the enjoyment of tourism, too. On March 18, spring birding season starts in earnest. That’s when signup starts for the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival, the big bird bash here in Homer

held May 9 to 12. The festival guide comes out March 14 in this week’s Homer News, with the online version available at http:// kachemakshorebird.org. It’s time to polish my binoculars, get out my journal and start listening. I just know that soon I will hear the sound of ringing telephones in the forest, and the varied thrush will sing again.

hope to continue the program rebuild. “If you had nothing but seniors on your team, it would be not as important because you wouldn’t have any younger kids getting experience,” Hawley said. “If I can keep the younger kids engaged and knowing what it means no matter what to never give up … that’s what’s important.” Warren took command early for CIA and helped push the Eagles to a smooth victory. Warren outscored Newtok 9-1 herself at one point in the first half. “She’s amazing,” Hawley said about Warren. “She’s like the glue of the team, she holds everyone together.” CIA also controlled the glass and won the rebound battle 48-29, while also keeping Newtok to 17 percent shooting from the floor. Newtok’s highest scorer was Regina Andy with eight points. The two different styles of play stood in stark contrast to each other. While CIA focused on getting Warren and Cizek the ball down low, Newtok rained down 3-pointers at a staggering rate. CIA took 45 field goal attempts inside the arc while Newtok put up 17 attempts, but from 3-point land, Newtok unleashed 40 shots compared to CIA’s total of five. Newtok, however, struggled with the long game, converting a paltry 12 percent (5 for 40) from beyond the arc. It also helped that CIA shot 41 percent in the second half. CIA busted open the first quarter with a 10-3 lead, then expanded the gap to 17-9 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Eagles fashioned a 27-12 lead with 3:57 left in the

Child’s accusations against cousin cause rift in family DEAR ABBY: My brother and sister-in-law recently told me their 5-year-old son claims my 9-year-old son touched him inappropriately on several occasions. Understanding that any parent believes what their child says, I asked my son if he has ever touched or done anything inappropriate to anyone. His response was, “Why would I do that?” My husband and I asked our son about it on several different occasions and got the same answer. Not wanting to pressure him to the point of coercion and force him to admit to something he did not do, I accepted his denials. My brother and his wife are convinced my son did these heinous things to their son. What more is there for me to do? My son and I are now being shunned and barred from being around any of my brother’s kids.

then you and your husband must investigate where this behavior came from and get him professional help. Until this is resolved, the children should be kept apart.

and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I checked my social media. I returned two emails, then saw I had a response to one of my texts which read, “???” So I texted back my name. Next thing I knew, my phone was ringing. It was an acquaintance from years ago. I answered, even though I could have let it go into voicemail, because I didn’t want to be rude. However, the last thing I wanted to do was have a 3 a.m. conversation with this person -- or any person, for that matter. In my opinion, a phone call is different from a text. Calling me at 3 a.m. was inappropriate,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, March 15, 2019: This year, you can count on your sixth sense coming through for you. At first, you might find it difficult to follow through on a “feeling.” The more you do it, the greater your trust becomes with your hunches. If single, you break a pattern and open up to a new emotional level. As this year comes to a conclusion, a new loved one could heat up your days and nights. If attached, you feel more connected to your sweetie than ever before. Let your caring flow. CANCER connects to you on a deep level. 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) HHH You might be overwhelmed by all that you want to accomplish on the home front. Don’t worry so much. Instead, simply flow through the ups and downs of your day. Look at situations from other perspectives. Tonight: The excitement is at your pad. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You could be quite taken aback by a conversation that is personal or becomes too intimate for your taste. Establish your limits, knowing what feels right. A discussion around an investment and funds could prove fortunate. Tonight: Let another person reveal his or her true colors. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH Be aware of the costs of continuing as you have. Honor your budget; don’t go overboard. You could be tired of continuing the fast pace, even if you like excitement and change. Go for more organization and self-discipline. Tonight: Let someone you look up to share his or her feelings. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You have the ability to change directions and get a better sense of others. You adjust well to change. Tossing yourself into a new situation, cycle or group invigorates you. Do not hesitate to venture in a new direction. Tonight: Go with the unusual idea. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You are able to make a big difference, far more than you thought possible. You might need to pull back and take some much-needed rest. Use

You will accomplish the lion’s share of work today, as your focus will be on finances and a partnership. A domestic question might be on the table. Tonight: Follow-through counts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Defer to others. You cannot take the lead in all matters. Open up to new possibilities through another person’s ideas. Be willing to express what might seem like a far out premonition. Tonight: Tell it as it is. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Pace yourself. You could be too tired to continue the frenetic pace you have been on. Perhaps it is time to schedule a massage or indulge in some other type of indulgence. Tonight: Know when to call it a night. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Your imagination works overtime. Before you know it, you have come up with an idea that might strike others as undoable, but actually can be manifested by the right person.

RV road trip to Alaska? Dear Heloise: My husband wants to rent an RV this year and have all of us go on a VACATION TO ALASKA. I’m worried. This will mean tight quarters with our two boys, ages 12 and 14. Is there any way to do this without going crazy? -- Samantha H., Fresno, Calif. Samantha, the RV is great for eating and sleeping, but kids usually don’t do well cooped up, so visit local museums, places of interest and try exploring nature in various parks. It’s also important to keep kids busy by assigning chores. One of the kids washes dishes while the other one dries them and puts them away. Someone cleans the windshield, someone sweeps the floor, and so on. Once in a while, stay in a hotel where everyone can take long, hot showers, watch TV and stretch out. If you’re renting the RV, be sure to buy the insurance. Pack an emergency road kit and a basic medical emergency kit as well. This is a great way to spend some quality time with your family. Just enjoy the scenery and your family, and take pictures. -- Heloise REHEATING HINT Dear Heloise: My son found a better way to reheat leftovers in a microwave. He suggested that I make a hole in the middle so that the food on the plate looks like a doughnut. The food heats faster and more thoroughly than when I just microwave it in a heap on the plate. -- Allyson B., Lexington, Neb. OVERRIPE BANANAS Dear Heloise: Got overripe bananas? I use them in fruit smoothies and as a substitute for fat when making oatmeal cookies. Much better for you when dieting. -- Shirley G., Yorba Linda, Calif.
