each from the North Slope, Fairbanks North Star, Denali, Matanuska-Susitna and Kenai Peninsula boroughs, and the municipality of Anchorage. It also would include two public members who do not live in those communities and one member of an organization representing the interest of municipalities. The governor would make the appointments. The board would review available information, hold public meetings and provide

As the month of April approaches, so does the next Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education meeting where members will have to approve a budget for the 2014-2015 school year. The district is facing a $4.5 million funding gap between revenues and expenditures. In addressing that shortfall, the board did not include money for the Skyview High School pool — $180,000 — in the budget. More than a dozen members of the community spoke at the board’s Feb. 3 meeting about the future of the pool with most of them voicing their desire to see it stay open. One of the common reasons pool proponents want the facility to remain open is because they view it as a valuable community resource. At the Feb. 26 Soldotna City Council meeting, Mayor Nels Anderson informed the council the KPBSD administration asked if the city would consider contributing $50,000 to keep the pool open for a year. While it’s not an agenda item for tonight’s council meeting, Anderson said he plans to talk about the pool in his Mayor’s Report. “Basically what we will do is put that in as a budget item for next year, assuming that the council members don’t object to it,” Anderson said. “And if they object to it then we’ll bring it up to a formal vote, otherwise we’ll just stick it in as a budget item.” Anderson said he hopes with the city’s contribution, residents will be able use the pool at no cost when it is available for free swim. He said he sees the pool as a community resource and many residents use the pool for physical therapy and other health reasons.

In the news Parnell signs bill rejecting pay raises

JUNEAU (AP) — Gov. Sean Parnell’s office says he has signed legislation rejecting recommended pay increases for himself, the lieutenant governor and main department heads. Parnell, in a release, called SB125 a “sensible piece of legislation,” given the current budget situation. He had previously said he would decline a pay raise for himself. SB125, from the Senate Finance Committee, passed the Legislature unanimously. The State Officers Compensation Commission recommended the increases as a way for those positions to catch up with pay increases for other executive-branch employees. The salaries were to take effect July 1, unless a bill disapproving the recommendations was enacted within 60 days of the commission submitting its recommendations to the Legislature. The director of the Division of Personnel and Labor Relations said the recommendations were formally submitted Jan. 30.

Pipeline advisory board created Body to represent municipal interests in gas pipeline process By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU — Gov. Sean Parnell signed an administrative order Tuesday creating a municipal advisory board to weigh in on issues related to the major liquefied natural gas project the state is pursuing. Several mayors have sought assurances that they would have a voice on terms that will affect local communities and be negotiated by the state in pursuit of the project. Areas of concern

House passes bill LeeShore conducts survey to end exit exam Results help gauge community awareness By MIKE COPPOCK Associated Press

‘It gives us some opportunity but certainly it’s not as much maybe as we had hoped.’

JUNEAU — The Alaska House on Tuesday approved a repeal of the state high school graduation exam. The vote was 32-5. The measure now goes to the Senate. The exit exam tests student aptitude in reading, English and mathematics. House Bill 220, sponsored by Rep. Pete Higgins, R-Fairbanks, terminates the exam as soon as the bill becomes law. It allows former students who earned enough high school credits to graduate to obtain their diploma even though they failed the exam. Passage of the bill would save the state $2.7 million in administrative costs, Higgins said. The bill includes an outreach effort to former students

who may request a high school diploma. Several of the five Republicans who voted against the bill said there needs to be some sort of standards to measure learned skills. “I think we need minimum standards.” Anchorage Rep. Bob Lynn said. “I think a high school diploma should mean something.” The Parnell administration originally wanted a threeyear transition to give former students who held letters of achievement but not diplomas the chance to go back and take the test.

For the first time the triennial LeeShore Center’s Community Survey will include questions directed at gauging awareness of the Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy on the Kenai Peninsula Borough. While implementation of Green Dot won’t begin until April, asking the community now will show exactly how much progress will be made over the next three years, said Cheri Smith, executive director of the LeeShore Center. The program uses the premise that any one has the power to intervene in a potentially violent situation, whether by

calling the police or simply speaking up, Smith said. Kenai was one of six areas chosen to develop a specialized program for its community. Others include Anchorage, Bethel, Fairbanks, Homer, and Prince of Wales Island (Klawock, Hydaburg, and Craig), according to the Office of Governor Sean Parnell. Once the survey period ends on March 31, Smith will review the results to determine what aspects of outreach to focus over the next three years, she said. “Are people becoming more aware? Is what we’re doing working?” are questions Smith said she hopes to answer from the results. Of the 450 residents that

took the 2011 survey, 90 percent thought domestic and sexual violence was a problem in the Kenai community, Smith said. Half the people surveyed reported they had experienced abuse at some point in their life, she said. More than 90 percent thought the LeeShore services were “very impactful to essential,” Smith said. Seventy-seven percent felt the center’s outreach was effective. During the last fiscal year LeeShore provided emergency shelter for 155 women and children, Smith said. It provided walk-in services to 457 individuals and took 831 crisis calls. The center also made a staggering 6,500 See SURVEY, page A-10

BAIKONUR, Kazakhstan — An engine snag has delayed the arrival of a Russian spacecraft carrying three astronauts to the International Space Station until Thursday, NASA said on Wednesday. A rocket carrying Russians Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev and American Steve Swanson to the space station blasted off successfully early Wednesday from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The Soyuz booster rocket lifted off as scheduled at 3:17 a.m. local time Wednesday, lighting up the night skies over the steppe with a giant fiery tail. It entered a designated or-

bit about 10 minutes after the launch and was expected to reach the space station in six hours. All onboard systems were working flawlessly, and the crew was feeling fine. But NASA said in a statement on its website that the arrival was delayed after a 24-second engine burn that was necessary to adjust the Soyuz spacecraft’s orbiting path “did not occur as planned.” The crew is in good spirits and is in no danger, but will have to wait until Thursday for the Soyuz TMA-12M to arrive and dock at the space station, NASA said. The arrival is now scheduled for 7:58 EDT Thursday. Russian spacecraft used to routinely travel two days to reach the orbiting laboratory before last year. Wednesday would have been only the fifth time that a crew would have

taken the six-hour “fast-track” route to the station. NASA said that Moscow flight control has yet to determine why the engine burn did not occur. The three astronauts traveling in the Soyuz will be greeted by Japan’s Koichi Wakata, NASA’s Rick Mastracchio and Russia’s Mikhail Tyurin, who have been at the station since November. Wakata is the first Japanese astronaut to lead the station. The new crew is scheduled to stay in orbit for six months. The joint mission is taking place at a time when U.S.-Russian relations on Earth are at their lowest ebb in decades, but the U.S. and Russia haven’t allowed their disagreements over Ukraine to get in the way of their cooperation in space. Swanson is a veteran of two U.S. space shuttle missions, and Skvortsov spent six months at the

space outpost in 2010. Artemyev is on his first flight to space. So far, the tensions between the U.S. and Russia over Ukraine have been kept at bay. Since the retirement of the U.S. space shuttle fleet in 2011, NASA has relied on Russian Soyuz spacecraft as the only means to ferry crew to the orbiting outpost and back. Earlier this month, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden repeatedly said the conflict in Ukraine would have no effect on what’s going on in space between the U.S. and Russia, saying that the “partnership in space remains intact and normal.” He said there’s a long history of countries cooperating in orbit, while clashing on terra firma, which is why he said some people have nominated the 16-nation International Space Station for the Nobel Peace Prize.

What Others Say

SEALS to the rescue Three cheers for the U.S. Navy’s courageous commandos, who Monday thwarted an attempt by a rogue Libyan militia leader to sell stolen oil on the black market. The Pentagon said President Barack Obama authorized the Mediterranean intervention Sunday night. Within hours, a Navy SEAL team on the guided missile destroyer Roosevelt had boarded and taken control of the Morning Glory in the Mediterranean near Cyprus. No one was injured in operation, which was executed with the characteristic SEAL efficiency. It was a rare show of resolution by an administration that has often appeared uncertain, if not impotent, during the recent international crises that have stretched from Crimea to Venezuela. The action signaled rebels that the United States will defend Libya’s new government, which desperately wanted to keep the militia from selling the oil worth several million dollars. The tanker, according to the Pentagon, had been stolen by three armed Libyans this month and then sailed into Sidra flying the North Korean flag, although the government in Pyongyang immediately denied any connection with the tanker or the plot to sell the stolen oil. Apparently the militia had hoped to find a buyer somewhere in the Mediterranean and use the proceeds to enhance its standing in the ongoing conflict with the new government in Tripoli that has been struggling to restore Libya’s financial well-being since Moammar Gadhafi’s brutal dictatorship was overthrown in 2011. The Navy described the capture of the tanker as a blow to the political ambitions of a militia leader named Ibrahim Jathran, who is said to portray himself as something of a latter-day Robin Hood, stealing from the government in order to improve the lives of those under his command. But the crisis was also a threat to Americans and other foreigners with a financial stake in the Libyan oil business. That the U.S. Navy stepped in to thwart Jathran’s bold scheme is a welcome triumph for the United States at a time when success on the international front seems increasingly hard to achieve. But the action should not mislead anyone. The president needs a foreign policy that demands respect even when the SEALs are not involved. — Tampa (Fla.) Tribune, March 18

CLARION P

By GARRY TRUDEAU

Fatalism in our social institutions

Just who is it we can confidently believe, and about what? Sadly, the smart answers these days are “very few” and “not much.” No, this is not about religion and its practitioners, but about our more down-to-earth institutions, the ones that are supposed to organize our civilization. They can do that only if they are inherently credible, but our society has been poisoned by an understandable cynicism about them. Worst of all, that disillusionment is reinforced constantly, to the point that we sullenly accept, without surprise, a daily tortuous drip-drip-drip of examples where our organizations fail us or cheat us. Where do we begin? Almost hidden in all the news and non-news about the vanished Malaysian airliner were the disclosures that General Motors, for more than a decade, buried knowledge about faulty ignition switches in some of its vehicles. GM now admits that a dozen people died as a result, although outside experts place the number much higher. Most of us are automatically inclined to assume the company is seriously low-balling. And while we’re at it, what about the ball-dropping on the part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is supposed to intercede but didn’t. And before we leave the auto industry, let’s make sure we heap scorn on Toyota, a corporation that has now settled with the Justice Department and agreed to pay a $1.3 billion civil penalty for falsifying information about its accelerator pedals that got

stuck and sent some terrified car passengers hurtling to their deaths. That’s a lot of money, but it’s a civil penalty, not a criminal one, which has even harsher consequences for a corporation, and would have even Bob Franken more painful ones for those top executives who could be proven responsible for intentional actions or inactions that killed. The crime of manslaughter comes to mind. And fraud. But that’s for lawyers to decide. And let’s not even get started about our legal system. That’s too obvious. As for Toyota, whatever the penalties, its public-relations people could claim victory. As horrific as their client’s admissions were, they were passe by the time they were announced, years after the offenses made headlines. The first thing a crisis-management person will tell you is that no matter how grotesque, stories become stale in a hurry. What might have been a major humiliation barely was noticed, so much so that the very same TV stations carrying stories about the billion-dollar fine and confession were running Toyota commercials within an hour. Those who noticed at all simply shrugged their shoulders. It was no more a surprise than the release of two reports about official incompetence,

findings released, after the fact, about tragedies that exploded into the news and then were shoved aside by the next crisis. Try hard to remember last November’s shock when a lone gunman went on a rampage at Los Angeles International Airport, killing a Transportation Security Administration officer and injuring several others before he was finally arrested. The post-mortem investigation paints a picture of an amazing lack of coordination: emergency radio systems that didn’t communicate with each other, lax security procedures — in short, chaotic mismanagement. Or how about the deranged man who roamed the halls of the Washington Navy Yard in September, fatally shooting 12 people and injuring others before police killed him. Turns out he was a private federal contractor whose severe mental-health issues had been overlooked by those who granted him the security clearance that gave him easy access. Ho-hum, you might say. And you’d be part of the crowd. A recent Pew poll of young people concludes that the bulk of them don’t trust our institutions. That’s good news and bad: It’s good because they have a realistic view of them, and bad because we won’t make it as a nation unless we have a credible social structure. More and more we do not. Bob Franken is a longtime broadcast journalist, including 20 years at CNN.

Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton promote higher education By KEN THOMAS Associated Press

AP News Extra

IRVING, Texas — Hillary Rodham Clinton and Jeb Bush, potential foes in the 2016 presidential contest, said Monday that higher education has the power to transform lives and be a force for democracy around the globe. Clinton and Bush spoke separately at the Globalization of Higher Education conference, but chatted briefly offstage. The event, co-organized by Bush, offered a bipartisan twist for the nation’s two dominant political families, both of whom could return to the presidential campaign trail next year. Bush, a former Florida governor, is the brother and son of Republican presidents. Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton, served two terms in the White House before she returned to political life as a senator from New York and President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state. Onstage in solo performances, Clinton and Bush each focused on education policy and the need to make higher education affordable and accessible across the globe. “When people around the world have access to this kind of American model of education it illustrates ... that we believe in spreading opportunity to more people, in more places, so that they too have the chance to live up to their own God-given potential,” Clinton said at the Dallas event. She’s worried, she added, “that we’re closing the doors to higher education in our own country so this great model that we’ve had that has meant so much to so many is becoming further and further away from too many.”. She thanked Bush at the start of her speech, citing his focus on education and his “passion and dedication” to the issue in the private sector. Bush spoke briefly at the start of the conference. “Higher education in America has a growing affordability problem while billions in the developing world struggle with accessibility.

at scale can help really resolve both issues simultaneously,” Bush said. “Expanding access through technology can bring down the cost of delivery at home and abroad.” Bush, the former Florida governor, has been a vocal supporter of the politically divisive Common Core standards, which specify what math and reading skills students should achieve in each grade. Some conservatives have criticized the standards as a federal intrusion into local classrooms; Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed legislation on Monday making his state the first in the nation to withdraw from the plan. The two families have produced three presidents since the 1988 election, a streak broken by President Barack Obama’s election in 2008. It was at least the third time in the past year that Bush and Clinton had crossed paths. Both were on hand for the April 2013 Dallas presidential library dedication of former President George W. Bush, Jeb Bush’s older brother. Mrs. Clinton sat on stage with her husband and four other living U.S. presidents attending the ceremony, including the Bush patriarch, former President George H.W. Bush. In Philadelphia last September, Jeb Bush — in his role as chairman of the National Constitution Center — awarded Hillary Clinton the Liberty Medal, an event which allowed both to offer plenty of presidential-themed banter. Bush said then that while he and the former first lady “come from different political parties, and we disagree about a lot of things,” they agreed on the wisdom of the American people, “especially those in Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina,” traditionally the first contests in the presidential primaries. Tongue-in-cheek, Bush asked Clinton not to wear her medal in Des Moines, Iowa, the home base for many aspiring presidents competing in the state’s caucuses. Mrs. Clinton reminded the audience

that both her husband and George H.W. Bush had received the medal in 2006; she and Jeb Bush were “keeping up a family tradition.” Clinton told the Philadelphia audience that her husband had recently returned from one of his “annual play dates” in Kennebunkport, Maine, at the Bush family compound. In her speech on Monday, Clinton recalled her work on behalf of education reform as first lady of Arkansas in the 1980s and her advocacy for the education of women and girls around the globe as secretary of state. She later appeared in Tulsa, Okla., to announce a new early childhood education initiative through her family’s foundation to encourage parents to speak to their young children to help them learn new words. Clinton read to and helped a group of toddlers sing along to the storybook “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” inside a Tulsa classroom. The campaign is being conducted in partnership with the foundation headed by billionaire George Kaiser, a major Obama campaign contributor.

Lawyer: Troopers destroyed evidence in cold case JUNEAU — A defense attorney for a man charged in the 1996 shooting death of his girlfriend has told jurors that Alaska State Troopers destroyed evidence in the case. Assistant Public Defender Eric Hedland made the announcement on Monday during the trial of 53 year-old Robert Kowalski, the Juneau Empire reported. Hedland asked the judge to exclude any testimony and evidence about the destroyed items, saying Kowalski does not have the ability to confront that evidence. Prosecutor James Fayette confirmed that troopers destroyed much of the evidence in 1998 for purposes of case management, storage and archiving but said some transcripts still exist. However, he accused Hedland of gamesmanship in the case. When the government destroys or loses evidence, state statutes allow judges to impose sanctions that can range from giving the jury special instructions on how to view the evidence to suppressing testimony about evidence. Judge Louis Menendez denied Hedland’s motion to suppress for the time being. He did advise the jury that they might be hearing more about the destroyed evidence later at trial. Kowalski is now charged with first- and second-degree murder in the shooting death of 39-year-old Sandra Perry in a Yakutat lodge. He claims he had heard a bear and was going to their bedroom window with a weapon when he tripped and the gun went off, with the bullet striking Perry. The state of Alaska re-opened the case after Kowalski was convicted of homicide in 2008 for killing a different girlfriend in Montana in what authorities called a similar manner. The destroyed evidence includes all the mini-cassette tapes that contained multiple audio recordings of interviews Kowalski gave to law enforcement at the time of the shooting as well as recorded statements from witnesses; VHS videotape of the crime scene; and items from the crime scene such as a fragment of the slug used in the shooting, Perry’s bloodied clothing and bed spread, Kowalski’s clothing, a cigarette lighter, Zoloft and a marijuana pipe. Hedland told the court he found the evidence log document buried in the middle of black and white photographs inside an 810-page PDF document. He said neither the Alaska State Troopers nor the prosecutors asserted or acknowledged the loss of the evidence in narrative form.

Fairbanks man again pleads guilty in man’s death FAIRBANKS — A 21-year-old Fairbanks man has pleaded guilty in connection with the 2011 death of an acquaintance after an argument. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says the trial of Cornelius Everett Jr. was interrupted Monday when he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of 55-year-old Johnson Griffin. Everett faces an 11-year prison term. He is set to be sentenced in April. Everett pleaded guilty last year to manslaughter and accepted a 15-year prison term. He later changed his mind. In June 2011, Griffin was found dead in his Northward Building apartment. Everett was later identified as a suspect after a medical examiner determined Griffin died of blunt force trauma to his chest. Authorities have said Griffin likely was assaulted days before he succumbed to his wounds and died. — The Associated Press

Bungling mars health care deadline By SANDRA CHEREB Associated Press

CARSON CITY, Nev. — As supporters of the federal health care reforms push for final signups, a handful of states are trying to press the reset button. They have botched their handling of the process so badly that they already are looking beyond Monday’s enrollment deadline to the next enrollment period starting in the fall. Many states and the federal government experienced technical problems with the enrollment websites, but implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act has been a relative disaster in Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Vermont. Rather than focusing on meeting enrollment targets, officials in those states find themselves consumed with replacing top officials, cancelling contracts with software companies, dealing with state or federal investigations, and spending tens of millions of dollars on fixes and new contractors. The core of the problem has been the difficulty in building an online health insurance marketplace that syncs up with myriad state and federal databases. Early projections for those

‘These are not numbers. These are people throughout the state who don’t have health insurance.’ ­— Lynn Etkins, Silver State Health Insurance Exchange five states were to sign up a combined 800,000 Americans for private health insurance coverage by March 31, 11 percent of the Obama administration’s original target for national enrollment. Yet with just days to go before the six-month enrollment period ends, achieving 25 percent of that target would be considered a success. Overseers of Nevada Health Link have called that state’s program a “full failure” and a “catastrophe.” Some officials have suggested dumping Xerox, which was awarded a $75 million contract to develop the system. While Xerox remains on the job, a state board earlier this month approved up to $1.5 million to hire another tech firm, Deloitte Consulting, to assess the Xerox system and recommend fixes. Last month Nevada officials cut their target enrollment from

118,000 to 50,000 and conceded that meeting even the lower goal would be a challenge. That drew the ire of board members, who lashed out about the thousands of people who will remain uninsured after Monday’s deadline. “These are not numbers. These are people throughout the state who don’t have health insurance,” said Lynn Etkins, an attorney and vice chairwoman of the board overseeing the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange. A week later, Nevada exchange executive director Jon Hager announced his resignation to pursue “new opportunities.” It is a similar story in Oregon, where the exchange’s executive director and two officials who oversaw the early technology development resigned. As of last week, 47,000 Oregonians had signed up for private insurance, less than a quarter of initial projections for

the full enrollment period. The exchange’s website was so badly bungled that applications at the beginning had to be processed manually, a process that remains partially in use. Cover Oregon has withheld $26 million of the $160 million billed by Oracle, which designed the website. The federal Government Accountability Office has announced an investigation, and a state-funded audit released last week found a failure by the exchange’s managers to heed reports of problems, poor communication and what it described as “unrealistic optimism.” In announcing results of the audit, Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber said he was angry and disappointed in a process that had caused so much confusion and uncertainty among consumers. Maryland’s exchange crashed at the start of open enrollment on Oct. 1 and has been rocky ever since. The exchange’s initial executive director, Rebecca Pearce, quit two months into open enrollment, and last month Maryland fired the state’s prime information technology contractor, Noridian Healthcare Solutions, after paying it $65 million. U.S. Rep. Andy Harris,

the only Republican in Maryland’s congressional delegation, called for a review by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services into how $250 million in federal money was used in the botched exchange. The department’s inspector general informed Harris that it will conduct the review. “I mean, this is an immense amount of money on a project that I think in the end, if I were betting right now, I would bet that they will abandon the Maryland exchange and either import another state exchange like Connecticut’s that works or go to the federal exchange,” Harris said. In addition to making major fixes, Maryland officials are considering whether to adopt technology developed by another state, join a consortium of other states running their own exchanges or partner with the federal exchange. In Massachusetts, where health care reform implemented under then-Gov. Mitt Romney was used as a model for President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, officials announced earlier this month that they were cutting ties with CGI Group Inc. The Montreal-based firm also was the lead con-

tractor on the troubled federal health care website that operates in 36 states. CGI was hired last year under a $68 million contract to develop a website transitioning Massachusetts’ previous health insurance program to reflect requirements under the federal law. But technical problems quickly led to a backlog of 50,000 paper applications, a pile that has since been whittled to about 21,000. The state hired Optum, another health care technology firm, to come up with short- and long-term solutions for the website, for which it was to be paid at least $16.4 million through the end of March. “The picture we are painting is that we have a long way to go,” said Sarah Iselin, a health care executive hired by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick to oversee fixing the website. “We are not going to sugarcoat anything.” Vermont changed from Oracle to a subsidiary of CGI only months before Vermont Health Connect was to go live. The system is slow, does not allow users to correct mistakes and cannot process premium payments.

After a kiss, Ukrainian troops leave Crimea by bus By ADAM PEMBLE and PETER LEONARD Associated Press

FEODOSIA, Crimea — Giving last-minute kisses to wives and girlfriends, Ukrainian marines in Crimea piled into buses Tuesday to head back to the mainland. Former comrades saluted them from outside a base that has been overrun by Russian forces. It was a low-key exit from the eastern port of Feodosia, with fewer than a dozen friends or relatives on hand to bid the marines farewell. A troop transporter bearing black Russian military plates trailed the bus as it pulled away. Their departure came as Ukraine’s defense minister stepped down Tuesday after harsh criticism for authorities’ often-hesitant reaction to Russia’s annexation of Crimea, which was formalized following a hastily organized referendum this month. And while

Ukraine struggled to deal with its humbling by Russia, it also faced the menace of seething Ukrainian nationalists angered by the police killing of a leading radical. Troops were given the stark choice of staying in Crimea and switching to work for Russia or leaving the peninsula to keep their jobs with Ukraine. So far, 131 Ukrainian marines have left Crimea, the defense ministry said. They are going to be stationed temporarily at a military barracks in the southern town of Genichesk but their final destination is still unclear. One serviceman, 30-year old Senior Lt. Anatoly Mozgovoy, told The Associated Press that he left his wife and sevenmonth-old daughter behind to stay with his mother-in-law in Crimea. “The Russians threatened, intimidated, bullied and tried to get us to switch sides to Russia. It has been very difficult

to resist this enormous pressure but I have made a choice that I can live with,” Mozgovoy said by phone from Genichesk. “We were greeted as heroes in Ukraine. I was able to breathe freely for the first time in months.” When he finds out where he is being permanently stationed, Mozgovoy plans to reunite the family. At a summit on nuclear security in The Hague, Netherlands, President Barack Obama said Russian troops would not be dislodged by force from Crimea. He reminded the audience that one of the achievements of his first nuclear summit in 2010 “was Ukraine’s decision to remove all of its highly enriched uranium from its nuclear fuel sites.” “Had that not happened, those dangerous nuclear materials would still be there now. And the difficult situation we’re dealing with in Ukraine today

would involve yet another level of concern,” Obama said. In an address to parliament in Kiev, Defense Minister Igor Tenyukh denied that he had failed to issue clear instructions to his troops but reserved the right to resign. The order to withdraw from Crimea was issued Monday, a week after many bases had already been stormed and seized by proRussian forces. Lawmakers initially refused Tenyukh’s resignation but later accepted it and replaced AP Photo/Valeriy Kulyk him with Col. Gen.

Shooting suspect didn’t have own weapon

Around the World Investigators say emergency braking system failed to stop train at O’Hare airport CHICAGO — An emergency track-side braking system activated but failed to stop a Chicago commuter train from jumping the tracks and barreling to the top of an escalator at O’Hare International Airport, a federal investigator said Tuesday. The events that led to Monday’s accident, which occurred around 3 a.m. and injured more than 30 passengers, might have begun with the train operator dozing off toward the end of her shift, according the union representing transit workers. But Tuesday’s announcement that a piece of emergency safety equipment might have failed was the first indication the accident could have been caused by human error and mechanical failure. National Transportation Safety Board investigator Ted Turpin said a preliminary review showed the train was traveling at the correct speed of 25 mph as it entered the station. Investigators said they have not yet determined whether the operator ever applied the in-cab brake. Turpin, who is in charge of the investigation, said an automatic emergency braking system located on the tracks was activated but failed to stop the train as it burst onto the platform. “It activated,” Turpin said of the emergency system. “That’s all we know factually. Now, whether it did it in time or not, that’s an analysis that we have to figure out.”

Court struggles with companies’ religious objections to law’s birth control coverage WASHINGTON — Seemingly divided, the Supreme Court struggled Tuesday with the question of whether companies have religious rights, a case challenging President Barack Obama’s health overhaul and its guarantee of birth control in employees’ preventive care plans. Peppering attorneys with questions in a 90-minute argument, the justices weighed the rights of for-profit companies against the rights of female employees. The discussion ranged to abortion, too, and even whether a female worker could be forced to wear an all-covering burka. The outcome could turn on the views of Justice Anthony Kennedy, often the decisive vote, as his colleagues appeared otherwise to divide along liberal and conservative lines. As the court heard the challenge brought by the Hobby Lobby chain of stores and others, demonstrators on both sides of the issue chanted outside in an early spring snow. The justices upheld the overall health care law two years ago in a 5-4 ruling in which Chief Justice John Roberts cast the deciding vote in favor of Obama’s signature domestic legislation. The latest case focuses on a sliver of the law dealing with preventive services, including contraception, that must be offered in a company’s plan at no extra charge.

ARLINGTON, Wash. — A scientist working for the government had warned 15 years ago about the potential for a catastrophic landslide in the fishing village where the collapse of a rain-soaked hillside over the weekend killed at least 14 people and left scores missing. As rescue workers slogged through the muck and rain in search of victims Tuesday, word of the 1999 report raised questions about why residents were allowed to build homes on the hill and whether officials had taken proper precautions. “I knew it would fail catastrophically in a large magnitude event,” though not when it would happen, said Daniel Miller, a geomorphologist who was hired by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to do the study. “I was not surprised.” Patricia Graesser, a spokeswoman for the Army Corps in Seattle, said it appears that the report was intended not as a risk assessment, but as a feasibility study for ecosystem restoration. Asked whether the agency should have done anything with the information, she said: “We don’t have jurisdiction to do anything. We don’t do zoning. That’s a local responsibility.”

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A civilian approaching a Navy destroyer at the world’s largest naval base late at night took a weapon from a sailor who was standing watch and used it to shoot and kill another sailor who was trying to help his embattled colleague, Navy officials said Tuesday. Navy security forces then killed the suspect, who was authorized to be on Naval Station Norfolk and did not bring his own weapon on base, according to Capt. Robert Clark, the base’s commanding officer. The identities of the civilian and the sailor who were killed have not been released. “Information about our sailor will come at the appropriate time and today is not that day,” said Clark, who asked for privacy for the sailor’s family. No other injuries were reported from the encounter, which occurred Monday about 11:20 p.m. on the USS Mahan, a guided-missile destroyer that had recently returned from a port visit in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. It wasn’t immediately clear why the civilian approached the ship or if he ever had access to it previously. The Navy said the civilian was coming toward the ship’s quarterdeck, which is traditionally the ceremonial entry

point aboard a ship, when the struggled ensued and the civilian was able to disarm the Petty Officer of the Watch. Clark said the identification found with the civilian indicates it is unlikely he was a military dependent authorized to be on base for that reason. He said the civilian was found with a TWIC card. A TWIC is a transportation worker’s credential and is issued by the Transportation Security Administration to personnel who require unescorted access to secure areas, such as truck drivers. The cards are valid for five years, according to the TSA. All merchant mari-

ners are also required to have a TWIC card, including employees of the Navy’s Military Sealift Command. Military Sealift Command hires civilian mariners to crew its ships, including the hospital ship USNS Comfort, which uses the same pier as the Mahan. Clark said it was unclear what exactly the civilian’s job was or when he worked on the base. The base was briefly on lockdown following the shooting, but traffic was back to normal early Tuesday morning. The Navy will release both men’s names after their families are notified, said Naval Station Norfolk spokeswoman

Terri Davis. Aside from the pier where the Mahan was docked, operations had returned to normal at the base, with counselors available, the Navy said in a statement. But most enlisted sailors on the Mahan — docked at the first of 13 main piers — were not to report to duty Tuesday. Some sailors gathered for a training session — unrelated to the shooting — and began with a moment of silence for their colleague. “We’ll find out what happened, and we’ll prevent that from occurring again,” Adm. Bill Gortney, commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command, based in Norfolk, told them. The shooting on the Mahan comes about a month after the Navy held anti-terrorism and force protection exercises on bases around the U.S., including an active-shooter drill at the Norfolk station. To get on the base, civilians must be escorted or have identification that allows them to be there. Authorized civilians can include Department of Defense employees, contractors and military family members. Each base entrance is guarded, and motorists present IDs. Inspections are rare. All 13 piers have additional security forces. As part of ongoing security efforts, handheld ID scanners were implemented this year at Navy bases in the region, including the Norfolk station.

Obama concedes Russia unlikely to leave Crimea By JULIE PACE AP White House Correspondent

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — President Barack Obama acknowledged for the first time Tuesday that Russia is unlikely to surrender control of the strategically important peninsula it annexed from Ukraine, conceding that Western condemnations have had little effect on Vladimir Putin. Obama insisted the international community would never recognize Russia’s takeover of Crimea. But he and European leaders, gathering in the Netherlands for a two-day nuclear summit, said a military response against Moscow was unlikely. The leaders focused much of their attention on keeping Russia from expanding elsewhere in Ukraine — even if that means enacting broad sanctions that have negative implications for their own economies. “Some particular sanctions would hurt some countries more than others,” Obama said during a joint news conference with the Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte. “But all of us recognize that we have to stand up for a

core principle that lies at the heart of the international order.” The president spoke a day after the U.S. and its partners in the Group of Seven economic forum declared that they were indefinitely suspending cooperation with Russia, which often joins with the G-7 nations to form the Group of Eight. The leaders also said they were prepared to impose sanctions on key sectors of the Russian economy, including its energy and defense industries. Russia’s brazen incursion into Ukraine has become a fierce challenge to Obama’s leadership on the world stage. He arrived in the Netherlands, the first stop on a weeklong trip abroad, facing withering criticism from Republicans who have charged that the president underestimated Putin or misjudged the Russian leader’s intentions. Among those critics is Obama’s former presidential rival Mitt Romney. The GOP politician declared during the 2012 campaign that Russia was America’s top geopolitical foe — an assertion Obama dismissed as a relic of Cold Warera thinking.

Obama took aim at Romney’s assertion again Tuesday, using the opportunity to derisively cast Russia as little more than a “regional power” that threatens its allies, but not the U.S. The pointed comment appeared to take aim at what Western officials see as Putin’s insecurity over Russia’s standing in the world. “Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors — not out of strength, but out of weakness,” Obama said. Still, he added that “it would be dishonest to suggest there is a simple solution to what has already taken place in Crimea,” where Russian troops are in control. In a sign of how difficult it would be to roll back Russia’s

advances, Ukrainian soldiers in Crimea piled onto buses and began their journey to Ukrainian territory on Tuesday following a withdrawal order from the central government in Kiev. A former comrade saluted them from outside a base overrun by Russian forces. While Putin did not attend the long-planned Nuclear Security Summit, his provocative actions in Ukraine dominated the two days of talks in The Hague. Western nations have used their long-planned meetings here to project a united front in their dispute with the West, banking that diplomatic and political isolation might prevent Putin from launching further incursions into eastern and southern Ukraine.

Bills owner Wilson passes away at 95 One of 8 members of the “Foolish Club”, Wilson played a big role in merging AFL and NFL JOHN WAWROW AP Sports Writer

BUFFALO, N.Y. — During his 95 years, Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson went from fan to “Foolish Club” member to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, enjoying every step along the way. The NFL lost the person regarded as the league’s “conscience” on Tuesday, when Wilson died at his home around 1:40 p.m. Bills president Russ Brandon announced Wilson’s death at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando, Fla. His death resonated among the owners — from old to new. Wilson played an integral role in establishing the modern game, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009. In 1959, Wilson founded the Bills in helping establish the upstart American Football League, whose owners

were dubbed “The Foolish Club” for having the chutzpah to challenge the NFL. Some five years later, Wilson played an influential role in the framework for the merger of the leagues. “Ralph Wilson was a driving force in developing pro football into America’s most popular sport,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “Ralph always brought a principled and common-sense approach to issues.” Patriots owner Robert Kraft released a statement saying how grateful he was for how Wilson welcomed him to the NFL, adding: “I will miss him.” So will Bills Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy, whom Wilson lured out of retirement to serve as the team’s general manager from 2005-06. “He wasn’t my boss, he was my friend,” Levy said. “Deeply saddened to hear about his passing. He meant so much to the game that both of us revered, and to the community of Buf-

falo and beyond. It’s quite a loss, and he’s going to be remembered so fondly by everyone who knew him.” The last surviving member of the original AFL owners, Wilson died at his home in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich., said Mary Mazur, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County medical examiner’s office. He had been receiving home hospice care. Wilson had been in failing health since having hip surgery in 2011. Though he spent much of his time at his home in suburban Detroit, he attended Hall of Fame induction weekends. He was a regular at Bills home games since founding the franchise, but had not been there since going to one game in 2010. Wilson gave up daily oversight of the club on Jan. 1, 2013, when he relinquished the president’s title to Brandon. “No one loves this game more than

Ralph Wilson,” Brandon said. “It’s very tough. What he’s’ meant to the entire organization. He’s our leader, our mentor our friend. How he loves his players and loved our community. Special guy. They just don’t make them like Ralph Wilson.” Wilson earned a well-established reputation for loyalty to fans and the stands he took against franchise relocation. Though he butted heads several times with late Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, it did not affect their friendship. As Davis said in 2009: “There were a lot of guys saying (Steelers owner Dan) Rooney was the conscience. But certainly, Mr. Wilson was more of a conscience of the league.” Wilson also earned the respect of his players. Bills Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas struggled with his

emotions when discussing Wilson. “With Mr. Wilson’s passing today, it hurts,” Thomas said. “So I’m going to miss him, without a doubt. He used to call me his favorite son.” Wilson’s Bills have never won a Super Bowl. They came close in the early 1990s, when the Levy-coached and Jim Kelly-quarterbacked teams won four consecutive AFC championships, but lost each time. The Bills have not made the playoffs since 1999 and their 14-year postseason drought ranks as the NFL’s longest active streak. Running back Fred Jackson said Wilson’s death provides the team new focus to end that drought. “We want to continue to cement his legacy,” Jackson said. “We want to honor him, and a great way to honor him is going out and winning a lot of See BILLS, page A-9

Blues hand Leafs another loss TORONTO (AP) — David Backes completed a hat trick with an empty-net goal to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 5-3 victory Tuesday night that sent the Toronto Maple Leafs to their sixth straight loss. T.J. Oshie and former Leafs forward Alex Steen also scored for St. Louis, which passed Boston for the most points in the NHL with 105. Ryan Miller made 21 saves to improve to 32-15-3 in his career against Toronto. The Blues have won 10 of 13 games since acquiring Miller and forward Steve Ott from Buffalo before the trade deadline. Joffrey Lupul, Carl Gunnarsson and James van Riemsdyk scored for Toronto, which dropped out of a playoff spot for the first time since Jan. 14, coupled with Washington’s shootout loss to Los Angeles. The loss ruined the return

DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki scored seven of his 32 points in overtime, leading the Dallas Mavericks to a 128-119 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night. Nowitzki also had 10 rebounds and six assists. In Dallas’ loss to Brooklyn on Sunday, he was 2 for 12 from the field in his worst shooting performance of the season. Kevin Durant led Oklahoma City with 43 points. He has scored at least 25 in 36 consecutive games in the longest such streak since Michael Jordan’s 40-game run during the 198687 season. Dallas had seven players score in double figures. Jose Calderon went 6 for 8 from 3-point range and finished with 22 points. Russell Westbrook scored 23 for Oklahoma City. All of his points came in regulation, when he played 31:50. He added another minute in overtime. Westbrook is limited to 30 to 32 minutes per game because of his oft-injured right knee. The Mavericks scored the first five points of the extra period on two free throws by Nowitzki and a 3-pointer by Calderon. They never trailed again. The victory pushed Dallas into eighth place in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of idle Phoenix. The Mavericks improved to 3-2 on a franchiselong, eight-game homestand, with three of the games going to overtime. They began the homestand in seventh place, one ahead of the ninth-place Suns. Dallas won 109-86 at Oklahoma City on March 16 with Westbrook sitting out. The dynamic guard returned to the Thunder’s starting lineup after missing their home victory over Denver on Monday. The Mavericks led 28-24 after one, but Reggie Jackson’s jumper put the Thunder in front for the first time at 34-32 with 7:54 left in the first half. Westbrook was the catalyst of Oklahoma City’s second-quarter

rally. He scored 10 points in the period, including a foul shot that gave Oklahoma City a 57-48 lead with 1:25 to go. But the Mavericks answered with three consecutive 3-pointers - one from Calderon and two from Vince Carter - to tie it with 33.4 left in the half. Durant then hit a 3 to give Oklahoma City a 60-59 lead at the break. LAKERS 127, KNICKS 96 LOS ANGELES — Xavier Henry scored 22 points, Nick Young hit five 3-pointers while scoring 20 points, and the Los Angeles Lakers dropped a franchise-record 51 points in the third quarter of their victory over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night. Kent Bazemore scored 18 C points as the Lakers won consecutive games for the first time in Y more than three weeks with a phenomenal offensive effort against the Knicks, who have lost two straight after an eight-game winning streak. Knicks President Phil Jackson watched his new team and his former club from a luxury suite high above the court.

CAVALIERS 102, RAPTORS 100 CLEVELAND — Dion Waiters scored 24 points and Luol Deng added 19 as Cleveland prevented Toronto from getting closer to a playoff spot. The Cavs blew a 21-point lead, but made just enough plays down the stretch to snap a five-game losing streak at home. They did it without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, who missed his fifth straight game with a strained biceps tendon.

MAGIC 95, TRAIL BLAZERS 85 ORLANDO, Fla. — Tobias Harris had 25 points and 11 rebounds, and Orlando stopped a nine-game losing streak. Nik Vucevic added 22 points and 10 boards for the Magic, who led by just eight at the half but used scoring spurts in the third and fourth quarters to put the game away. Victor Oladipo had 13 points and six assists.

late NCAA rules that seem designed to make everyone money but the athletes themselves. Instead, Smith gets the bonus money, part of a deal where he gets paid every time there are “exceptional athletic achievements” under his watch. Smith already makes $940,484 a year, but if the athletes at Ohio State perform well he could earn more than $1.5 million a year under a sweetheart contract that runs through 2020. That’s the way things operate in big-time college athletics, where the rich are getting richer. Hard not to profit when the labor is free, and the new television contracts seem to carry an extra zero every time they are renegotiated. Unfortunately, the gravy train might be coming to an end. Current and former athletes are showing they learned

something in college. Ed O’Bannon’s lawsuit against the NCAA could go to trial this summer and change everything. Several Northwestern athletes are trying to start a union. And a lawyer jumped in the fray last week with a federal lawsuit on behalf of four players that calls the NCAA and five major conferences an “unlawful cartel” that illegally restricts players from making money while taking in billions. In the meantime, the NCAA continues to pocket an average of $771 million a year in television rights to the basketball tournament and millions more in ticket sales. There’s an official drink for the tournament, as well as an official wireless partner. And the players? They get three squares a day and, in the case of New Mexico State

last week, a long ride home in the middle of the night after an emotional overtime loss. And when the NCAA charger dropped them off around 5:48 a.m., they didn’t have enough buses to take everyone back to campus. “The older I get the harder it is to understand how this has gone on as long as it has,” said O’Bannon, who led his UCLA team to the national championship in 1995. “It’s just unbelievable to me.” O’Bannon isn’t the only former UCLA player pushing for player rights. Ramogi Huma formed the National College Players Association as a sophomore in the mid-1990s after seeing teammate Donnie Edwards suspended for accepting free food when his scholarship money ran out before the end of the month.

annual reports by Dec. 15 each year. The board is to meet at a date and time set by the Revenue commissioner or the commissioner’s designee, at least once in a calendar year. Michael Pawlowski, a deputy Revenue commissioner, said he believed that language surrounding meeting at least once a year was standard and could not imagine just one meeting. “We would never get the consensus recommendations for action that we would need to build for success going forward,” he said. He said the state will be guided by the group. The state has signed an agreement with officials from the Alaska Gasline Development Corp., TransCanada Corp., and BP, ConocoPhillips and ExxonMobil Corp., spelling out broad terms for advancing the project. The agreement includes a provision stating that subject to consultation by the state and local governments, payments in lieu of property tax would be paid by the companies on each component of the project. Impact payments paid by the companies to help offset increased service and other costs borne by the state and local governments during construction also would

be subject to consultation. If enabling legislation, deemed acceptable to all the parties, passes the Legislature — a bill passed the Senate last week and is being considered by the House — project-enabling contracts would be negotiated and brought back to lawmakers for consideration. The board’s duties and responsibilities would include recommendations surrounding property taxes and ways to mitigate the financial impacts to communities affected by the project. Denali Borough Mayor Clay Walker said he supported the effort. He said he would have liked to have seen one more item under duties and responsibilities: an opportunity to weigh in on location of off-take points for gas for in-state use. Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Mike Navarre called establishment of the board a positive step but said a lot of details still had to be resolved. “It gives us some opportunity but certainly it’s not as much maybe as we had hoped,” he said. “But recognizing that the governor and the administration was not going to invite us to participate in those negotiations, this at least gives us a chance to have some input if they discuss with us things that are being considered. We’ll see.” composed of questions developed 12 years ago directed at understanding where LeeShore fits in with the community, Smith said. According to the University of Alaska Anchorage’s Justice Center, the 2013 Alaska Victimization Survey for the Kenai Peninsula Borough, released on Oct. 10, 2013 in Kenai found “52 percent of adult women in the Kenai Peninsula Borough have experienced intimate partner violence, sexual violence or both, in their lifetime.” The community survey can be taken at the LeeShore Center, and is open to everyone.

safety checks to those in need, she said. Smith said the most recent survey found people were generally unaware of LeeShore’s Youth outreach programs. Last year LeeShore presented information at 155 schools across the Peninsula reaching 3,000 students, she said. “Violence prevention for youth is critical to stop the cycle,” Smith said. It is understood nationwide that domestic abuse is a learned behavior, she said.

“There’s a lot of ability to use it for other things and have community use it for learn to swim and those sorts of things,” he said. “And it’s just a valuable resource, in my opinion, as a public service thing for the whole community and the whole area — not just the City of Soldotna.” Community members are also showing their support to keep the facility open by signing a petition at Sweeney’s Clothing in Soldotna. Owner Mike Sweeney presented the board with more than 200 signatures at its March 3 meeting. He said the petition, which has been available at his store for more than a month, has more than 500 signatures total. “There’s a lot of people that are concerned and don’t want to see this pool end,” Sweeney said. “There’s a good chance that it might be saved, but we don’t know what direction they’re going to go.” Superintendent Dr. Steve Atwater said that the community

A deadline of June 30, 2017, for former students to request a high school diploma was removed from the bill. Rep. Les Gara, D-Anchorage offered that amendment and said not all former high school students may receive notice of a deadline. High school seniors are under current law and will have to pass the test, Education Commissioner Mike Hanley said. The test is offered in October and April. But if the bill becomes law before the graduation date of high school classes, seniors will be eligible to receive diplomas without passing the exit exam.

has shown a lot of support for keeping the pool open. However, he said the pool’s primary function is to serve students, not the community. He said user fees only cover costs for the lifeguard and chemicals. Heating the pool is a big expense. “It’s not a matter of increasing the user fee by a dollar to make ends meet,” he said. “… It’s hard for the public to understand that because they feel that, if they spent five bucks to swim there, that should cover it, but really it doesn’t.” Atwater said administration has also approached Central Peninsula Hospital about contributing to keeping the pool open. Hospital CEO Rick Davis did not immediately return phone calls from the Clarion about where CPH is in its consideration of putting up money for the facility. Atwater said the district didn’t ask for a specific amount from either agency, but if one of both of them commit to providing some funding it could lead to changes in how the pool is operated. “It could well lead to designated time being reserved for a

And it maybe that there’s a dedicated time for physical therapy at the pool as a result of the financial support.” Atwater said the district needs to know each agency’s decision by next week to better determine what the viable options are for the pool as April 14 — when the board must pass a budget — closes in.

Around Alaska Senate panel advances bill on ferry workers’ pay JUNEAU — As the state continues to negotiate contracts with unions for ferry system workers, a Senate committee on Tuesday advanced a bill that would lower pay for the system’s Alaska-based employees by eliminating cost-of-living differentials. A provision that dates back decades allows differentials to be paid to employees living in Alaska, as opposed to those living out of state, with the minimum salary based on Seattle’s cost of living. The Alaska Marine Highway System spans more than 3,500 miles, from Bellingham, Wash., to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, and employs workers who live outside Alaska. Information provided with the bill shows the differential is about $450 to $665 per pay period for two of the unions and roughly $4 to $5 an hour for another union. Union leaders say getting rid of the differential will hurt recruitment. Some ferry system workers who testified to the Finance Committee talked about the long work hours

“We’re in a period of reducing expenditures,” he said. “We’re cutting things so it’s hard to say, ‘Well, just cut two teachers and keep the Skyview pool open instead.’ That’s what makes it so hard, especially when we have a pool two miles away at (Soldotna High School).” Kaylee Osowski can be reached at kaylee.osowski@ peninsulaclarion.com.

and the high cost of living in rural communities. Sen. Fred Dyson, R-Eagle River, the sponsor of the bill, has said the differential results in significant costs to the state. Senate Bill 182 would not allow collective bargaining agreements to adjust the salary paid to an employee living in Alaska based on a difference between the cost of living in Alaska and outside the state. If approved, the bill would remove the cost-ofliving adjustment for anyone hired after July 1. Employees already receiving the benefit before July 1 will continue to be paid the differential. Nicki Neal, director of the Division of Personnel and Labor Relations, told the Finance Committee on Monday that the differential language in law is outdated and limits what can be bargained. Critics say the state should not get involved in union bargaining issues. The state remains in negotiations with three unions representing Alaska Marine Highway System workers. State law calls for terms of tentative agreements to be submitted to the Legislature by the 60th day of session. The 60th day happened last week. — The Associated Press C

Proper ‘seasoning’ Key to good ribs, baked beans and corn bread sticks

A

s readers of this column already know, I’ve uncovered some real finds over the years at yard sales, thrift stores and flea markets. At a recent community rummage sale, I spotted a rusted-over vintage cast iron corn stick pan in the bottom of a box filled with other neglected kitchen items. The pan was the treasure among the castoffs, and although it would take some doing, I knew the pan could be refurbished and restored for use for years to come. So, home the pan went and without much trouble at all, I had a fully reconditioned pan, ready to join the other well-used and functional cast iron cookware in my kitchen. After seasoning, the newly acquired pan produced some

picture-perfect corn sticks, which literally fell out of the pan after they were baked. Owners of cast iron sometimes encounter “sticking” problems with their equipment – an indication that it’s time to re-season the cast iron and get it back to where it’s meant to

be. (See re-seasoning tips from Lodge Manufacturing Company following today’s recipes.) After enjoying corn sticks for breakfast, someone at the table winked and said, “These would taste good at dinner, maybe with some ribs.” And, so they did, served along with tender barbecued ribs and some baked beans, as well. Grilling ribs is fun, but so is cooking with cast iron. And just like food – with seasoning added. Sue Ade is a syndicated food writer with broad experience and interest in the culinary arts.

If you are short on time, simmering ribs on the stove before grilling can help to both tenderize the meat and cut down on the grilling time. Basted with barbecue sauce, ribs that have been precooked can be grilled to a deep mahogany brown in just 20 minutes.

Barbecued Fall-off-the-Bone Tender Pork Ribs 6½ pounds pork baby back ribs 1 onion, coarsely chopped ½ cup cider vinegar 12 black peppercorns 1 teaspoon salt Barbecue sauce Cut ribs into serving portions. Place them into a large Dutch oven, adding water to just cover. Add onion, vinegar, peppercorns and salt. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer for 1

hour; drain well. Grill over low coals for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. Baste with barbecue sauce and grill 5 minutes. Turn ribs, grilling for an additional 5 minutes, or until ribs are done, as desired. Makes 6 servings. Kitchen Ade note: barbecue sauces that are high in sugar will burn when brushed on foods over a hot fire. To avoid burning, always add the barbecue sauce during the last minutes of grilling. Barbecue sauce can also be added after the food is removed from the grill.

Slow-Baked Beans with Bacon are an irresistible side dish with barbecued ribs.

Corn Bread Sticks ½ cup sifted unbleached all-purpose flour ¼ cup granulated sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder ¼ teaspoon salt ½ cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal 1 large egg, lightly beaten ½ cup milk 2 tablespoons butter, melted Vegetable oil for brushing on corn bread pan Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Use a pastry brush to generously coat the corn stick pan with

oil, then place the pan in oven to heat while you mix the batter. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir in corn meal. Add egg, milk and butter, mixing well. Fill each well about 2/3’s full. (Do not overfill pans.) Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the corn sticks comes out clean. Remove pan to a wire rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Using a sharp knife to loosen the edges of the corn bread sticks, remove sticks to a rack. Serve warm. Makes 7 to 9 corn bread sticks. Recipe may be doubled if you have two corn stick pans.

Left, A well-seasoned, cared for cast iron pan is the secret behind perfectly shaped corn sticks. Even rusted, old cast iron pans can be refurbished for a lifetime of use. If food sticks to your cast iron cookware, or if it is looking gray and dull, you may need to re-reason your pans.

About spring grabbing me

O

H MY! Spring has grabbed me by the thumbs! It does not help to get nursery catalogues and flower books in the mail! I have read them ragged! It also does not help to have this beautiful sunshine coming in my sewingroom window and through the kitchen window of the house filling the rooms with warm sunshine. I also have played (with much pleasure) in the dirt in Fireweed Greenhouse with Susan and Pam and it really fires up the spring fever! Reality sets in when I walk out my sewing room door and see the big glacier in our yard and a snow bank that has not melted to the level where I can see over it to check on the lake to see if the ice is melting on it! Not yet! My mother loved flowers and spent hours in HER yard with a hoe and pretty flowered gloves to “tend to things.” After the new house was built the first year my dad labored at putting a lawn in the front yard where we had always played in the dirt. It grew fast and was very hardy. On the south side of the lawn, Mom planted a lilac tree and dug along the drive way with HER shovel to plant iris, cosmos, carnations and later years she planted chrysanthemums that bloomed in the fall. Mom had HER hoe and HER shovel — no one, absolutely NO ONE took Mom’s hoe or shovel. The hoe served two purposes: to dig little ditches to water HER flowers and to kill snakes if one ever ventured into HER yard. If she saw a snake — usually a little garter or garden snake, she would go into a little “snake dance” with her hoe, chop his head off, chop into little bitty pieces and then dig a ditch beside it and scrape the remains of the snake into the ditch, and

Hints from Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars A baby born today has a Sun in Aries and a Moon in Aquarius. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, March 26, 2014: This year you remain optimistic, even when others can’t seem to smile. Your sense of direction and high energy will allow you to make a difference. In the summer, your creativity seems to soar, and those around you will learn to count on your ingenuity. If you are single, the summer and a period of time afterward could be very pleasing and memorable. You will have many choices, and the type of person you choose will determine the type of relationship you’ll have. If you are attached, the two of you frequently will be found doing your own thing together. You are in a period where you enjoy each other’s company even more. AQUARIUS is a loyal friend. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You’ll feel optimistic about a situation, yet you might not be sure as to which direction you should head in. The unexpected tosses a new factor into the mix, which you’ll feel is a good thing. Go with the flow and the moment. All’s well that ends well. Tonight: Hang out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Tension builds as you set out to deal with many different options. Is it possible that you are receiving too much good news in your life? You could be overwhelmed by all the opportunities coming your way. Trust in your ability to make the

Rubes

right choice. Tonight: A late dinner. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You could be overwhelmed by what is happening, yet you will remain positive. You will make the correct choice, and financial gain will be the incentive that guides you. An offer from a friend could throw off your plans. Tonight: Try something spontaneous. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH You have more to offer someone than you realize. The way this person approaches you at the present time might clue you in. Learning to establish suitable boundaries could be a very positive step. Tonight: Listen to what someone whispers in your ear. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Defer to others, as you likely won’t have much choice anyway. Someone might want to demonstrate his or her worth. Do not interfere. Your ability to get past a problem will allow you to have more bounce in your step. Tonight: Allow more flex. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHYour ability to enjoy your work makes many other signs either jealous or worried about you. In either case, use that ability to clear as much as you can off your plate. A meeting with a friend could push you to complete even more. Tonight: Consider taking Friday off. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You know which path is the right one for you to follow, but perhaps you are feeling anxious about taking the first step. Be careful not to push someone too hard, as he or she might decide to say “enough” and head for the hills! Tonight: Add more fun to the moment.

Ziggy

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Your ability to visualize what you desire and to do what you feel is necessary will be clear. It will take action to proceed in the right direction. Ask yourself whether there is any real obstacle here. Tonight: Home feels like your castle. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHYou see life with greater clarity and openness. How you handle a personal matter could change, as you seem to be establishing who you are on a new level. Maintain a sense of humor when a partner teases you a bit about your new attitude. Tonight: Visit and catch up on news. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH You could be taken aback by an opportunity to see a loved one in a new light. This person suddenly might be so cheerful that you won’t know which way to head. Try to catch some of his or her optimism if you can! Tonight: Treat a friend to dinner. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You seem to be on cruise control no matter what you do. Move important matters along quickly, as you don’t often have extra free time, like you do now. Some of you just might decide to do your taxes! Tonight: Make sure that you choose an activity you enjoy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHYou are a sign that experiences many intuitive hunches. Right now, you could be acting on an emotional level, especially around a child or new friend. The odds are that you will land well. Agitate less, and act more often. Tonight: Tap into your creativity.

It’s not just for toast Dear Heloise: With so many different jams and jellies to choose from, I don’t just use it on toast anymore. Here are a few of the ways I use jams, jellies and preserves: * Use a tablespoon of jam or jelly on oatmeal in the morning. * Take the top rind off your favorite brie cheese, cover with jam or jelly and bake until warm. * Mix your favorite flavor with cream cheese and serve with crackers at your next party. * Add to yogurt. I hope other readers will try some of these tasty hints. — Kelly T. in New York Boiled dry Dear Heloise: The directions for my coffee maker state to dispose of the glass coffee carafe if it has been boiled dry. I am wondering, why? — Andree M. in South Dakota Very good question, and an important safety one also! If a coffee carafe has boiled dry, the concern is from what is referred to as “dry-heating.” After this has occurred, the glass may have been compromised, causing it to crack the next time you go to use it. Rather than have that happen, it is recommended that you replace the glass carafe immediately. — Heloise Cleaner pans Dear Heloise: When I boil dry beans (pinto, black beans, lima, etc.), I thoroughly wash my stainless-steel cooking pan, using hot water, soap and a nylon scrubbie. However, the pan always dries with an ugly, whitish film covering the inside bottom surface. I just cover the bottom with a little white vinegar, let it stand for a few minutes and re-rinse. The pan dries bright and sparkling! — A Reader in Oregon

DEAR ABBY: I have been married almost 20 years. Eight years ago my wife began an emotional affair with a co-worker. It lasted a year, until he left the company. Although they never had sex, they did have some physical contact that most people would consider inappropriate, and my wife considered ending our marriage because of the feelings she had for him. She now says the episode was a huge mistake and she loves me more than ever. The problem is, she wrote many entries about him in a journal. I know she kept writing about him several years after they lost contact, including saying that she loved him more than a year after he’d left. I want my wife to remove the portions of the journal pertaining to this guy. She doesn’t want to. I’m still hurting from this and am considering counseling, but for now, what do you think? Should she get rid of the journal? — CONSIDERING COUNSELING DEAR CONSIDERING COUNSELING: Because you are still hurting seven years after the fact, stop “considering” counseling and get it NOW. If your wife is a serious journal writer — and many people are — that she would want her writings to remain intact in spite of the fact they reflect her emotional affair is not unusual. If that’s the

Mike Sweeney and Sweeney Mobile driver Dr. Dan Pitts lead the annual parade down the Spur Hwy in Soldotna.

Three generations of Redmond’s keep their St. Patrick’s Day tradition of marching in the parade and handing out candy.

Hundreds of kids line the Spur Hwy to catch the candy of another parade.

Nikiski’s Thunder Drum Line comes to Soldotna to march in St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Over the last 23 years Alaska’s only St. Patrick’s Day parade has experienced everything the weatherman has to offer, from bitter cold, sleet, snow and rain to unseasonably warm spring sunny skies. While most Sourdough’s agree that this has been one of the mildest winters they can remember, Old Man Winter seemed to pick the infamous holiday to do a little pay back. However, when creator of the event Mike Sweeney showed up with Dr. Dan Pitt’s in a ’69 shamrock green Camaro, the snow squalls subsided long enough for Carrol Martin

of the Diamond M Ranch to off load his dappled green lamas and hitch them to a pony cart for the parade. Others joined in as hundreds lined up along the Kenai Spur Highway to collect candy tossed out along the parade route from Bailey’s Furniture to the “Y.” By the time the SPD re-opened the highway and the last parade participant had completed the chilly trek, but before the lamas were led back to the trailer, the snow had started again creating near white out conditions. “Back in the early nineties I was on the Soldotna Cham-

ber Board and I am a good part Irish, not 100% but we thought it would be a good thing to do to usher spring business to Soldotna and have some fun and here it is 23 years later and we’ve had a parade every year regardless of the weather,” said Sweeney. Coming to Soldotna from Nikiski for their first time in the St. Patrick’s Day parade was the Bull Dog’s Thunder Drumline who were followed by three generations of the Redmond family of Soldotna who have faithfully celebrated their favorite saint’s day by dressing in vintage green rega-

lia and passing out candy to all the kids who line up to watch the parade. Paul Gray in his Exploring Alaska SUV was in the parade for his 22nd year also passing out candy. The Kenai Peninsula Tourism & Marketing Dodge Ram “Stay & Play” pick up was also in the parade

with the Stanley Chrysler Ram mascot up top. The unique rig will be raffled off this summer as a KPTMC fund raiser in cooperation with Stanley Chrysler. See PAT, page A-4

Terri Zoph-Schoessler joins her troop for final photo before their last Mass Dance Concert.

Sky-High dancers to perform in final KPBSD Mass Dance concert April 4th&5th.

Dancers rehearse for Sky-High’s last Mass Dance Concert The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District’s (KPBSD) Mass Dance concert April 4th & 5th will be an historic one for alumni, students and faculty of Skyview High School. “This will be the final Mass Dance concert that Skyview High School will participate in,” Terri Zoph-Schoessler told the Dispatch in an interview last week during a rehearsal with her troop, “When the district opened Skyview High School in 1990, I started the dance team with 18 dancers, six of whom were named “Jennifer.” (True story.) In order to match existing programs at Nikiski, SoHi, and KCHS, Skyview had two classes of dance scheduled during the school day. Phil Morin, LuAnn Reynolds, Dawn Thorpe and I scrambled--as choreographers, costumers, fundraisers, set and lighting designers-

-to come up with dances that students could and would perform. This also meant that we spent a lot of time listening to lyrics to determine if they really were ‘just fine...no problem’ when suggested by our wide-eyed students. Each of us dutifully booked our own concerts and, in turn, invited the other high schools as well as any other companies we knew to “our” individual concerts, until that fateful day when Phil and I finally mustered the magic words: “Mass Dance!” (Thank you, Mass Band and Mass Choir, for showing us the way!) With one large annual concert, each troupe could prepare fewer and better dances. Phil built epic dances with massive sets requiring several trucks to move, LuAnn perfected the Star Sensations’ brilliant formations, Dawn’s teams sparkled in amazing se-

quined suits, and the Skylight Dancers found their own niche with humor and grace. For years, before budget cuts and retirements eroded our dance programs, we met, worked together, helped each other, and danced. Oh, we danced!” said Zoph-Schoessler. Things change however, continued Terri. “After a time, Dawn Thorpe and LuAnn Reynolds retired. Phil Morin and I took time off for our families and to direct various community projects. Other choreographers took over the dance programs as after-school activities. Somewhere, however, in the back of our minds, the lure of Mass Dance lurked. Three years ago we finally admitted that we missed the camaraderie, so with the help of administrators and theatre managers; we resurrected the Mass Dance tradition. So for

Skyview Interact Club raises over $1,000 to fight Cystic Fibrosis.

Skyview Interact sponsors Zumbathon benefit for Cystic Fibrosis Rotary Kenai River Interact Club hosted their first Zumbathon last week to raise funds to fight Cystic Fibrosis. The Interact Club at Skyview High School is sponsored by the Soldotna Rotary Club and is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to join together to tackle community service issues that they care about in their local community, nation or world. “Zumba instructor Harmony Curtis has a three year old little girl Alicia, better known as Ali who has Cystic Fibrosis. Her twin sister Melody, also a Zumba instructor, suggested our Interact club sponsor a community Zumbathon and use the proceeds to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis,” Moira Pyhala, Interact president told the Dispatch in an interview. “It’s really encouraging to C

see the community support the effort to find a cure. The Interact youth are inspiring and they did a great job volunteering to put this event together,” said Harmony Curtis. Harmony and her twin sister Melody hold weekly “Harmony/Melody Zumba” classes at Soldotna Middle School. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disorder for which there is no cure that affects most critically

the lungs, pancreas, liver and intestine. “It’s mainly a children’s disease. There are a lot of people who are recessive carriers of it and 30,000 people in the U.S. have the disease. There is no cure yet, but today because of new treatments kids with CF can live into their thirty’s now, but we’d like them to live longer and hopefully find the cure,” said Harmony. Cat Schoessler is the Interact vice

president at Skyview where she is involved dance, sports, academics and just but everything a high school student can be involved, but was excited to be involved with the Zumbathon, “I was so excited at how the people in the community just started giving and the turn out here is awesome. Everyone is part of the community and when something affects one of our children, it effects all of

us, so putting my time into this event is more than worthwhile and it’s just awesome to see the results,” said Schoessler. Zumbathon participants donated $10.00 to Zumba for three hours and raised $1,078.00 at last count. “All the Interact kids worked hard to make this a success. I learned a lot about service above self from my dad who is a Rotarian and I’ve had a lot of opportunities

to give back and giving back is what cool kids and geeks do,” added Moira. Anyone wishing to contribute may log on to HarmonyMelodyzumba.com and learn more. According to Pyhala the Kenai River Interact’s next project is going to be collecting used soccer balls and sporting equipment for an international project to be sent to youth in third world countries.

Rotary Club members honor Amelia Mueller during special Food Bank luncheon.

Community service prodigy gets recognized by Rotary At a recent district workshop in Anchorage Soldotna Rotary past President Marcus Mueller was a speaker at a training workshop. Due to a scheduling conflict in his family, Mueller brought his nine year old daughter Amelia to be with him. Her dad had Amelia well prepared with coloring books and IPad to pass the time while he addressed a room filled with district leaders in training. However, rather than being entertained with her toys, Amelia’s eyes were glued with interest and awe as each of the speakers talked about various avenues of community service. When one speaker talked about Rotary Youth Exchange, a program where high school students travel abroad go to school and experience different cultures while making lasting friendships, it was reported

that Amelia moved closer to the end of her seat. Then, when a second speaker shared about Rotary’s vision for eradication of polio through the efforts of individuals like her father who have spent their time and money inoculating children around the world, Amelia’s attention got even more intense, said Leonor Fraser who was present at the conference. “When another Rotarian shared about the Interact Rotary program for high-school students 12 to 18 years of age, she said ‘That could be for me in a couple of years.’ During lunch I took Amelia by the hand and asked her if she wanted to go outside for a walk or if she was bored. To my amazement she replied, ‘Rotary makes a difference through service, I like that,’ So recognizing Amelia’s interest and spirit to serve, we decided

to create a unique Rotary award we called the Learning to Serve & Serving to Learn award and presented it to her at our annual meeting at the Food Bank. For years our club has supported the Food Bank’s Meal a Month program, an amazing program that provides opportunities for business or individuals to sponsor a meal a month by donating $100.00 to the Food Bank. Soldotna Rotary president Dale Bagley presented a check in the amount of $1,200.00 to Linda Swarner, Executive Director who shared that 1,574 meals were served in February. Amelia after receiving her award wanted to stay and help volunteer at the Food Bank as well. We think she is a Service Above Self prodigy and she is proud to the first ever to receive the special award,” reported Fraser. Soldotna Rotary president Dale Bagley presents Linda Swarner with a $1,200 check to the “Sponsor a meal a Month” program.
