In the news Alaska Senate OKs bill for fair liquor license JUNEAU — The Alaska Senate has passed legislation intended to allow the Alaska State Fair to continue selling alcohol. The bill, which passed 19-0 Monday, creates several new liquor license types, including a fair license. Soldotna Sen. Peter Micciche says the bill is in response to a more stringent reading of state law by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. The board’s actions followed audits that found the board approved recreational site licenses that didn’t strictly meet the definition for such licenses. The measure also would explicitly allow skiing and snowboarding under the definition of recreational sites, which Micciche said had been traditionally permissible previously. Micciche sponsored the bill and characterized it as friendly to small businesses. The bill next goes to the House.

Commission director resigning over rifle sticker complaint ANCHORAGE — The executive director of the state human rights commission says she will resign, after being suspended for posting on social media about a “Black Rifles Matter” sticker she believed to be racist. The sticker was on a vehicle in the commission’s parking lot last month. The commission voted Friday to suspend Marti Buscaglia without pay for 15 working days and ordered her to send an apology letter to the truck’s owner. The 15day suspension began Monday. Anchorage TV station KTUU reports Buscaglia says her resignation will be effective April 26. In her resignation letter, Buscaglia says she has been considering retirement for some time. She wrote she considers her leaving now to be in the commission’s best interest so it can continue its work and put the controversy behind it. — Associated Press

Glaciers shrinking faster than thought Public asked to weigh in on pipeline efforts By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON — Earth’s glaciers are melting much faster than scientists thought. A new study shows they are losing 369 billion tons of snow and ice each year, more than half of that in North America. The most comprehensive measurement of glaciers worldwide found that thousands of inland masses of snow compressed into ice are shrinking 18 percent faster than an international panel of scientists calculated in 2013. The world’s glaciers are shrinking five times faster now than they were in the 1960s. Their melt is accelerating due to global warming, and adding more water to already rising seas, the study found.

“That’s clearly climate change if you look at the global picture.”

The Cook Inlet Regional Citizen’s Advisory Council will be providing an opportunity for citizens to weigh in on CIRCAC’s efforts to improve the Cook Inlet’s pipeline infrastructure, according to a press release from April 8. From now until April 25, the public can go online to fill out a survey consisting of eight questions related to

Service organization receives employment assistance grant By BRIAN MAZUREK Peninsula Clarion

A peninsula community service organization recently received a $50,000 grant to support training and to provide resources to its employment assistance program. The Alaska Mental Health Trust (AMHT) awarded the grant to Frontier Community Services, which provides assistance in seeking employment for those who may struggle to find a job on their own. The grant will provide Frontier’s employment specialists with training in the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model, as well as the resources to incorporate the IPS model into their current programs. Frontier’s Executive Director Amanda Faulkner said that AMHT awarded the grant to Frontier partly to test the effectiveness

of incorporating the IPS model into employment assistance programs, and said that its success could lead

to other agencies around the state being awarded similar grants. “They always partner

with us on new pilots and are always open to invest in our ideas on how to make things better or bring new

things to our community,” Faulkner said. The IPS model is geared toward people with serious mental illnesses and those dealing with substance abuse. According to the IPS website, the model stresses gainful employment in a position that appeals to the individual based on their strengths as well as their particular disability or mental health issue. Frontier’s Disability Employment Specialist Ron Paul said that an individualized approach is key when assisting people who struggle with issues related to mental health, substance abuse or developmental disabilities. “We match the client with a proper employment setting,” Paul said. “We never set anyone up for failure, so we always make sure people are capable and willing to perform the duSee GRANT, page A11

Barr faces Congress as he readies Mueller report By ERIC TUCKER and MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr is facing members of Congress on Tuesday for the first time since taking office — and amid intense speculation over his review of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report. Barr isn’t coming to Congress to talk about the report, but lawmakers are expected to ask about it anyway as they anxiously wait to see it in the coming days. The topic of the House appropriations subcommittee hearing is the Justice Department’s budget, and Barr’s prepared remarks sent to the commit-

all. Mueller sent his final report to Barr on March 22, ending his almost two-year investigation into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Barr released a four-page letter summarizing the report two days later and said he would release a redacted version of the full report by mid-April, “if not sooner.” The new attorney general’s budget testimony — traditionally a dry affair, In this Jan. 15, 2019, file photo, William Barr takes ques- and often addressing the tions at his confirmation hearing to become President parochial concerns of lawTrump’s top law enforcement officer, on Capitol Hill in makers — comes as DemoWashington.

A Nikiski man has been charged with reckless endangerment after allegedly leading state troopers on a high-speed chase, accord-

5 a.m. on April 4, a trooper was driving on Wik Road in Nikiski and was approaching the intersection with the Kenai Spur Highway when a vehicle sped past the intersection. The See SPEED, page A11

In excerpts from her opening statement released Monday night, House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., said that Barr’s summary letter “raises more questions than it answers.” The chairman of the subcommittee, Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano of New York, also said there were unanswered questions, including “serious concerns about the process by which See BARR, page A11

Storm to hit Rockies before forming new 'bomb cyclone' By MATT VOLZ Associated Press

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Flood, snow, avalanche and fire alerts popped up Monday from Idaho to Colorado, as parts of the U.S. interior that were paralyzed by blizzards and floods last month braced for round two of an unusual weather phenomenon. Welcome to springtime in the Rockies and parts of the Great Plains. It's not unusual for floods, snow and fire to co-exist in the Rockies thanks to powerful storms blowing through the mountains, melting snow swelling waterways and high winds sweeping across dry grasslands and trees that haven't seen their first green shoots and leaves. Those conditions are what drove a wildfire Sunday on southeastern Montana's Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, where a house fire sparked a blaze that quickly burned through 1,700 acres of dry grass and trees. It forced evacuations Sunday in Lame Deer, a town of about 2,000 people that is the seat of the tribal government, before fire crews were able to contain it. Also normal are the fire warnings issued for eastern Colorado on Monday, a day after a wildfire near Colorado Springs forced the temporary evacuation of about 20 homes. Forecasters frequently issue red flag warnings for March and April on the eastern and southeastern Colorado plains as the jet stream moves southward and brings stronger weather systems and higher wind, said Jennifer Stark, meteorologist in charge for the National Weather Service in Pueblo, Colo-

rado. "This is the time of year when we get a roller coaster of weather," Colorado state climatologist Russ Schumacher said Monday. "Going from 80 degree temperatures one day to a snowstorm the next is not that out of the ordinary, especially in March and April, around here." But what is unusual is what's coming next. A storm system that is moving in from the Pacific Ocean is forecast to intensify and form into a new inland "bomb cyclone." A bomb cyclone is a rapid drop in air pressure — at least 24 millibars in 24 hours — and often is over or near oceans or seas because it requires warm moist air smacking into cold dry air, along with volatile weather from the jet stream. The central and mountain part of the country may get one of these every few winters, said Greg Carbin, forecast branch chief for the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center in Maryland. But this would be the

second such storm in less than a month. The March 13 storm caused massive flooding in the Midwest, a blizzard in Colorado and Wyoming, and produced winds of between 96 mph and 110 mph. This week's bomb cyclone one is expected to be similar in intensity and in snowfall, meteorologists said. Heavy, wet snow will fall from the Nebraska panhandle through south central and southeastern South Dakota into western Minnesota. Wind speeds can reach 50 mph to 60 mph across Kansas. "This blizzard will further exacerbate flooding in Nebraska with the added insult of heavy snowfall to eventually melt," said Ryan Maue, a meteorologist at the private weathermodels.com. "This is more bad news for suffering farmers who are unable to flip the calendar on winter." But first, the storm is expected to flooding in Idaho and western Montana, and dump up to 2 feet feet of snow in the mountains of Montana and Wy-

oming as it moves in from the Pacific Ocean. Parts of Colorado that were under a fire warning Monday are expected to see snow and temperatures drops of more than 40 degrees by Wednesday at the southern edge of the storm, meteorologists said. The storm dumped rain on parts of Oregon Sunday and Monday as it moved inland, causing flooding that closed some schools in the central Willamette Valley and forced the release of water from dams. While it's unusual to see two consecutive inland bomb cyclones, it's difficult to pin the cause on climate change, said Schumacher. "I think it's an interesting question to ask whether there's some climate change fingerprint on this," he said. "But it's a complicated puzzle to piece together." That includes what is happening as the storm forms over the Pacific Ocean, what happens once it's over land and what effect climate change may have on those variables.

335 of 489 students, or nearly 70%, enrolled in the Anchorage education school will be impacted. An official says discontinuation of advanced teacher licensing is scheduled to be considered at a Board of Regents meeting

in May. Officials say more than 100 students have already transferred to University of Alaska Fairbanks and University of Alaska Southeast programs being offered in Anchorage. Anchorage officials were told in January that the education department lost national accreditation for its initial licensing programs.

Letter to the Editor

Borough and school district employees are in this together I was concerned last week when

a couple of Kenai Peninsula Borough employees spoke at the borough assembly meeting against a resolution to supply additional funds to the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. My angst was not simply from their opposition to the funding; I realize people have differing views on the value of education. My worry was that they spoke to the value of education, but then portrayed educational funding as an “us vs. them” situation, in that money for education was money that would not go to borough employees. Families and businesses choose to locate on the peninsula because of the basic and quality of life services that a well-run borough with first-class employees provide. An excellent school system (do not confuse KPBSD excellence with certain dismal statewide statistics twisted by public education detractors) is a huge draw for families and businesses as well. Borough and school district employees should be advocating for each other and encouraging the borough assembly to take a stand against the draconian, anti-government/antitax/privatization-at-all costs mindset of the current governor and his minions. Those who want to see both borough services and school district quality drastically reduced are happy to see their divide and conquer strategy working. Be assured that those of us who teach and work in the KPBSD choose to live and raise our families on the peninsula because of the quality of life that exists here. We fully understand the contribution of borough services to that equation and value the commitment of the employees who provide them. We will be right there advocating to protect those services as part of a complete fiscal plan to keep the Kenai Peninsula Borough open for business and moving forward, as opposed closing up shop and watching the exodus begin. A rising tide floats all boats.

Some memories stick with you. For me, one of those memories begins as I’m sitting in an airplane taking off from Ted Stevens International Airport, having just finished my campus interview at University of Alaska Anchorage. I looked at the mountains and ocean, and I did not feel like I was departing from a short trip to a new city, I felt like I was departing my home. I was hit by a major revelation that I was meant to be at UAA. I know that UAA is where I want to be because I know that it’s where I can make the greatest impact. There is a growing trend throughout the U.S. education system. In regions, like Alaska, where factors such as declining birthrates and migration predict significant declines in university enrollment, urban/metropolitan universities are thriving. Urban/metropolitan universities are located in highly populated areas and commercial centers. They were initially safety schools and commuter schools but, in these select regions, they have become first choice schools. They provide open access with a focus on student success and serving diverse populations. They offer relevant degree programs, credentials and skills that serve current and emerging workforce needs. And, they focus on community service and applied research activity to stay connected and socially embedded in their communities. Examples of these kinds of universities include University of Texas San

A laska V oices C athy S andeen

for health education, we provide our programs in locations across the state. Other examples of UAA community partnerships are the UAA Institute of Social and Economic Research, which is at the forefront of public policy research and often the first place that elected officials turn when they need data to support law and policy, and the ConocoPhillips Arctic Science and Engineering Endowment, an $11M endowment that supports research projects that directly benefit our state. Because of projects like these and UAA’s dedication to community service (Seawolf Athletes alone donate over 2,700 hours of community service every year), UAA was recently commended by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities for its community engagement. UAA is not the “ivory tower,” it never has been. We are proud of who we are, a university of place. UAA is accessible, engaged and connected and we care about our communities, region and state. Our people embody our mission and we are positioned to do even more in the future. I invite you to share in the greatness that I have come to see at UAA. Attend one of the many open events on campus, use our library, hire a graduate, support a scholarship, or take a class. That is what attracted me to UAA from my first campus interview. I took the job and I haven’t looked back.

Antonio, Portland State University, University of Nevada Las Vegas, and, proudly, University of Alaska Anchorage. UAA is located in Alaska’s largest population center and is open to anyone seeking greater opportunity through education. We have a relentless focus on student success and it has paid off. UAA increased standard completion of bachelor of arts degrees by 6% in one year! The programs offered by UAA (ranging from credentials and certificates to PhDs) are relevant to what our city and state workforce needs. We graduate the largest numbers of students in health care, engineering, business and management, social sciences, hospitality, aviation and diesel mechanics. The degree programs we offer are a direct bridge to UAA’s commitment to community and social responsibility. Programs like the Surgical Technology program, which was created in partnership with (and funded by) local health care leaders, help fill community needs. Our nursing program delivers degrees to Alaskans here in AnCathy Sandeen has been Chancelchorage and, as UA’s lead university lor of UAA since September 2018.

Defend the PFD and fund — or lose them both Alaska is at a crossroads. Voters need to know our government is redefining the purpose of the permanent fund and the permanent fund dividend. The government wants us to believe that the fund and PFD belong to the government to spend as it wishes. This is wrong. The government is spending our dividend, which is Alaskans’ rightful share of our public oil wealth. Misunderstanding and false information about the permanent fund system are widespread. The truth is, Alaska’s founders and the people of Alaska set up the permanent fund as a trust fund that belongs to all Alaskans, which is funded from the wealth of our commonly owned oil and mineral resources. We the people amended the Alaska Constitution, allowing for 75% of these royalties to go for government spending, and a small 25% slice of the royalties to go to the fund. The fund is a way to save our one-time, non-renewable oil and mineral wealth for current and future generations. As Elmer Rasmuson, a former chairman of the Permanent Fund Corporation said, “The fund is a constitutional right, not a gift bestowed by a generous government.” The permanent fund dividend comes from the investments of the permanent fund, not from taxes. The fund and the PFD belong to the people. The government would have you believe that the PFD is a welfare program. It isn’t. It’s our share of our savings. My father, former Gov. Walter Hickel, was not an advocate for the PFD at first but later accepted it. He said, “You, as a resident of Alaska, share in the ownership of

A laska V oices J ack H ickel 103 million acres of land, all navigable waters and the natural resources our land and water contain. It is your oil, your natural gas, your minerals, your timber, your fish … A portion of your oil royalties are also set aside in the permanent fund from which you, as an owner, earn dividends.” If the oil belongs to the people, then so does both the permanent fund and the dividend belong to the people, which is the wealth derived from the oil. An important purpose of the dividend is to protect the fund wealth from mismanagement by government. Gov. Hammond and other leaders with vision established the PFD program. These leaders knew that sharing some of the saved wealth in the permanent fund via a dividend each year was the best way to keep the permanent fund protected from looting down the trail by greedy politicians interested in spending the fund. Dave Rose, the initial director of the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation, said the greatest threats to the permanent fund are the “intense temptations of powerful people (and) … the strongest defense of all is the Alaska Permanent Fund dividend.” Has the dividend protected the fund? Yes, until three years ago when politicians started cutting the PFD in almost half, ig-

noring the PFD law enacted in 1981. Now the whole permanent fund system is under attack by raiding politicians. Why is this attack happening? Oil revenues declined and our politicians are hooked on spending. Legislators in both parties continue to spend savings without efforts to use other options for a sustainable budget. They already spent 75% of our oil wealth royalties. But that wasn’t enough, so they have nearly depleted the budget reserves by spending over $15 billion from these accounts. That still wasn’t enough, so they withheld over $1 billion for inflation proofing the permanent fund, which effectively decreases the fund’s value. That wasn’t enough either. So they cut your PFD by nearly half, ignoring the law for the past three years. Then in 2018, for the first time the Legislature passed a law, SB-26, to access the Permanent Fund Earnings Reserve Account for additional government spending. But this new law has no formula for yearly PFD payments and that makes paying the PFD optional. These raids on the PFD and permanent fund are ongoing and threaten the security and growth of Alaskans’ savings. Apparently, our politicians think the dividend is a slush fund to be spent by the government for the government and not by the people. Cutting the PFD is a regressive tax, hurting the state’s most disadvantaged people the hardest while barely affecting the wealthy. Research shows that cutting the PFD is the worst kind of tax and is the most “adverse of all revenue measures.” The PFD has been a huge benefit to our state for over 35 years. Our elected officials are ignoring the fact that the PFD

encourages private sector development, is the best way to fight a recession, and elevates up to 25,000 people out of poverty. I am proud that every Alaskan with limited financial means, especially those in the rural areas where cash jobs are limited, has an equal share of cash generated from our public resources. I support the reinstitution of the historical PFD law that has paid a full PFD and worked well for residents, the economy and fund protection. And, I see an extremely urgent need to secure the PFD in the Alaska Constitution to guard it from the grasping hands of politicians. I oppose balancing the budget with Alaskans’ PFD — it’s wrong. It’s time to have an open discussion about appropriate budget cuts and revenue raising options. If we do not, we will lose the PFD and destroy the permanent fund. Now is the time for every Alaskan to ask, “What direction should we take?” Will we allow these threats to ruin the fund and the PFD, which are admired globally as a great example of resource wealth management and equitable benefit for residents? Or will we choose to defend and strengthen our successful permanent fund and permanent fund dividend to benefit current and all future generations? Will politicians choose the right path? It’s up to you, Alaska voters, to make sure they do. Jack Hickel is a family physician with the Southcentral Foundation in Anchorage and vice president for Permanent Fund Defenders. (www.pfdak.com)

Nation/World Shake-up at Homeland Security beyond Nielsen’s exit By COLLEEN LONG and JILL COLVIN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump and White House allies pressing for a harder line on immigration sped up their campaign Monday to clean house at the Department of Homeland Security with a mission far wider than just the departure of Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. The dismantling of the government’s immigration leadership is being orchestrated by Trump adviser Stephen Miller, the impetus behind some of the administration’s most controversial policies, according to three people familiar with the matter. Beyond changing names and faces, Trump is considering separating migrant families at the border again, resuming the practice that drew so much fury and outrage last year, the same people said. The head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, L. Francis Cissna, and Homeland Security General Counsel John M. Mitnick are expected to be pushed out of their positions, the officials said. Nielsen submitted

her resignation Sunday after meeting with Trump at the White House, and three days earlier the administration withdrew the nomination of Ron Vitiello to lead Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. Other longtime civil servants in agency posts are also on the chopping block, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Leading senators from both parties deplored it all. “The purge of senior leadership at the Department of Homeland Security is unprecedented and a threat to our national security,” declared Democrat Dianne Feinstein. “President Trump is trying to remake DHS into his own personal anti-immigration agency.” Republican Ron Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, criticized Congress for a crisis at the border but also said, “I am concerned with a growing leadership void within the department tasked with addressing some of the most significant problems facing the nation.”

Adding to the turmoil at Homeland Security, the director of the Secret Service is being forced out of his job, but that departure is said to be unrelated to the immigration upheaval. For all the churn, the Trump shake-up won’t get around the immigration laws and court challenges that are thwarting him at every turn as he tries to contend with the increasing numbers of migrants at the border and his looming 2020 re-election campaign. Nielsen has dutifully carried out the administration’s orders, but often had to explain to Trump the legal limits of what he wanted to do. And he didn’t like it.

She did months of diplomatic work with Central America and Mexico, and brokered an arrangement where asylum seekers were to wait in Mexico for their asylum cases to play out, an effort meant in part to discourage false claims. She moved to abandon longstanding regulations that dictate how long children are allowed to be held in immigration detention, and was working to find space to detain all families who cross the border . She limited what public benefits migrants can receive, and put regulations in place to circumvent immigration law and deny asylum to anyone caught crossing the border illegally.

Huffman, 12 other parents to plead guilty in college scheme By ALANNA DURKIN RICHER Associated Press

BOSTON — “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman and a dozen other prominent parents have agreed to plead guilty in the college admissions bribery scam that ensnared wealthy families and athletic coaches at some of the nation’s most selective universities, federal authorities said Monday. The actress and the other parents were charged last month in the scheme, which authorities say involved rigging standardized test scores and bribing coaches at such prestigious schools as Yale and Georgetown. Huffman, 56, was accused of paying a consultant $15,000 disguised as a charitable donation to boost her daughter’s SAT score. Authorities say the actress also discussed going through with the same plan for her younger daughter but ultimately decided not to. She will plead guilty to a single charge of conspiracy and fraud, according to court documents. Those charges are punishable by

up to 20 years in prison, but the plea agreement indicates prosecutors will seek a sentence of four to 10 months. Experts have said they expect some parents will avoid prison time if they quickly accept responsibility. All of the defendants will have to return to Boston to enter formal guilty pleas, but no new court dates were set. Other parents charged in the scheme include prominent figures in law, finance, fashion, the food and bev-

erage industry and other fields. It’s the biggest college admissions case ever prosecuted by the Justice Department. The scandal embroiled elite universities across the country and laid bare the lengths to which status-seeking parents will go to secure their children a coveted spot. The consultant, Rick Singer, met with Huffman and her husband, 69-yearold actor William H. Macy, at their Los Angeles home and explained to them

that he “controlled” a testing center and could have somebody secretly change their daughter’s answers, authorities said. Singer told investigators Huffman and her husband agreed to the plan. Macy was not charged. Authorities have not said why. In a statement offering her first public comments since her arrest, Huffman apologized, took responsibility for her actions and said she would accept the consequences. “My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty,” she said. Michael Center, the former men’s tennis coach at the University of Texas at Austin, has also agreed to plead guilty, prosecutors said Monday. Center was accused of accepting nearly $100,000 to help a nontennis playing applicant get admitted as a recruit.

Libya clashes over Tripoli escalate as city’s airport is hit

BENGHAZI, Libya — Clashes between rival Libyan forces for control of Tripoli escalated on Monday as the death toll from days of fighting rose to at least 51, including both combatants and civilians, and the city’s only functioning airport said it was hit by an airstrike. The self-styled Libyan National Army, led by Khalifa Hifter who last week launched the push on Tripoli, acknowledged striking the Mitiga airport, barely 8 kilometers (5

miles) east of the city center. Hifter’s forces have clashed with rival militias which support the U.N.backed government that controls Tripoli and the western part of the country. The escalation has threatened to plunge the fractured North African nation deeper into chaos and ignite civil war on the scale of the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi. The U.N. said the latest fighting has displaced some 3,400 people and blocked emergency services from reaching casualties and civilians.

Around the World

The World Health Organization said two doctors were killed trying to “evacuate wounded patients from conflict areas.” Ibrahim Fadel, an official at Mitiga, said no casualties were reported in the airport attack. Flights were suspended for several hours but the airport reopened later Monday and said it would resume operations going forward from 7 a.m. till 7 p.m. The official Facebook page of Mitiga, run by the U.N.-backed government, said a fighter jet attacked the facility but gave no other details. A video circulated online shows a fighter jet firing and apparently targeting the airport, formerly a military base. Maj. Gen. Mohamed alManfour of Hifter’s Libyan National Army, told the Libyan Address newspaper they bombed targets at Mitiga after receiving information that the U.N.-backed government forces were preparing to target them. U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters in New York on Monday that “unfortunately” the United Nations received “no positive news”

in response to its urgent appeal for a truce in Tripoli. A cease-fire is imperative to ensure that civilians trapped in fighting around the Libyan capital can escape to safer areas and that the wounded can be evacuated, he said. The U.N. humanitarian coordinator in Libya, Maria do Valle Ribeiro, said the clashes have also worsened the situation for migrants held in detention centers in Tripoli, she warned. Meanwhile, fighting was underway Monday at Tripoli’s former international airport, some 24 kilometers (15 miles) south of the city. That airport was closed in 2014 after fighting destroyed much of it. Ahmed Musbah, a resident who lives near the area, said he could hear shooting coming from the direction of the town of Bin Ghashir, to the south. “The sound of fighting seems to be closing in,” he said. Hifter’s forces said Saturday they had seized the old airport. However, militias supporting the U.N.-backed government in Tripoli claimed Monday they recaptured the facility.

JOHANNESBURG — A rhinoceros poacher was stomped to death by an elephant and eaten by lions in a South Africa wildlife preserve, and rangers found just his skull and trousers, authorities said. The man and two others were hunting illegally at Kruger National Park last week when the elephant surprised them, park spokesman Isaac Phaahla said. The hunter’s companions dragged his body to a spot near a road and told the man’s family what happened. It took two days for rangers to find his remains. South Africans weighed in on social media, with many celebrating the poacher’s death, calling it justice or applauding the animals for “restoring law and order in the jungle.” But others blamed the economic desperation that leads people to become poachers, and the international criminal syndicates they work for. Julian Rademeyer, a project leader for TRAFFIC, which monitors the international trade in wildlife, said effective measures are needed to attack the global rings that deal in rhino horn and elephant ivory. “The rage and anger of many people at the rampant poaching that is endangering rhinos and elephants is understandable. But the joy and gloating over the death of a poacher is crass and misguided,” Rademeyer said. “Killing poachers will not stop poaching. Poachers are just the foot soldiers of international criminal syndicates.” The world’s rhinos are in danger of being hunted to extinction. They are prized for their horns, which are ground up and used in traditional Chinese medicine as a supposed cure for a variety of ailments. South Africa, which has about 80% of the world’s remaining rhinos, has seen aggressive poaching of the animals in recent years. Last year 769 rhinos were killed illegally , down from more than 1,000 annually since 2013, according to Save the Rhino. “Poaching is a serious, ongoing problem in the park,” Phaahla said of Kruger, which covers 7,500 square miles in southeastern South Africa, making it about the size of the U.S. state of New Jersey. After the death of the poacher, whose name and nationality were not released, relatives asked park officials to help recover the body. Rangers searched on the ground and by air but did not find the remains before it got dark, Phaahla said. The two surviving hunters gave officials a more precise description of where they left the dead man. Police arrested them on suspicion of poaching. “The next day, our field rangers searched in the bush and made the gruesome discovery,” Phaahla said. “There was a pride of lion nearby which apparently had devoured his body.” Police said they seized guns and ammunition from the surviving men. They were charged with illegal possession of firearms, trespassing and conspiracy to poach. “On most days, we have close to 15 poaching groups of three individuals each who are hunting illegally for rhinos,” Phaahla said. “Our rangers are well-trained and making progress in controlling the poaching.” Rademeyer, the author of “Killing for Profit,” a book about the illegal trade in rhino horn, blamed “the appalling socio-economic conditions in South Africa that drive young men to take risks to hunt rhinos and elephants.” In addition to fighting international criminal syndicates, “what is also needed is to win support in rural communities for conservation. People living around parks must see the value of wildlife,” Rademeyer said. “They must see the economic benefits of wildlife. We need a national pride, of all South Africans, in our wildlife.”

‘Smallville’ actress pleads guilty in sex-trafficking case NEW YORK — TV actress Allison Mack pleaded guilty Monday to charges she was involved in a scheme to turn women into sex slaves for the spiritual leader of a cult-like upstate New York group, a development that came on the same day jury selection began for a federal trial in the case. Mack, 36, wept as she admitted her crimes and apologized to the women who prosecutors say were exploited by Keith Raniere and the purported selfhelp group called NXIVM. “I believed Keith Raniere’s intentions were to help people, and I was wrong,” Mack told a Brooklyn judge. Mack - best known for her role as a young Superman’s close friend on the series “Smallville” - said that after months of reflection since her arrest, “I know I can and will be a better person.” The actress is to be sentenced Sept. 11 on two racketeering counts that each carry maximum terms of 20 years in prison. However, it’s likely she would face far less time under sentencing guidelines. The plea means Mack will avoid going to trial with Raniere, wealthy heiress Clare Bronfman and another member of Raniere’s inner circle, Kathy Russell. All have pleaded not guilty and denied any wrongdoing. About two hours after Mack’s guilty plea, potential jurors got their first glimpse of the jailed Raniere at a proceeding where they were instructed on questionnaires to be filled out as a first step in the selection process. Opening statements are scheduled for April 29 for a trial that is expected to last up to six weeks. The question of who would be seated at the defense table that day had remained unanswered in the wake of new allegations that Raniere exploited a teenage girl. The accusations gave his co-defendants even further incentive to seek separate trials and engage in plea negotiations. Court papers allege NXIVM formed a secret society of women who were branded with Raniere’s initials and forced to have sex with him. Defense attorneys have insisted any relationship between Raniere and the alleged victims, including an unidentified actress and other women expected to testify against him at trial, was consensual. — The Associated Press

Virginia stops Texas Tech for title By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — Now that, Virginia, is the way to close out a season. And quiet those critics, too. Led by De’Andre Hunter and his NBA-ready game, the Cavaliers turned themselves into national champions Monday night, holding off tenacious, ferocious Texas Tech for an 85-77 overtime win — a scintillating victory that came 388 days after a crushing setback that might have sunk a lesser team for years. But Virginia was better than that. A season after becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to a 16 — the one thing that had never happened in a tournament where anything can — the Cavaliers watched a 10-point lead turn into a 3-point deficit before Hunter came to the rescue. The sophomore made the game-tying 3 with 12 seconds left in regulation, then made another with just over two minutes left in the extra period to give the Cavs the lead for good. “Surreal,” Hunter called it. “It’s a goal we started out with at the beginning of the season. We knew we were going to bounce back from last year. We achieved our dreams.” After going scoreless for the first 18 1/2 minutes, Hunter finished with a career-high 27 points, and if he leaves as a lottery pick — well, what a way to go. He helped the Cavs bring home the first NCAA title for a program with a color-

ful, star-crossed and, now, very winning history. Ralph Sampson was in the house, but now it’s possible that Sampson and the name “Chaminade” won’t be at the top of Virginia’s resume anymore. Or “University of Maryland-Baltimore County.” That was the No. 16 seed that stunned the Cavs in the first round last year, its playful social media manager online Monday night tweeting congratulations shortly after the final buzzer. Hunter missed that game with a broken wrist, but nobody thought they’d miss him THAT much. Each of Virginia’s 34 wins leading to the final, and each of its scant three losses, were all punctuated by the reminder that only the end result would serve as the ultimate report card on whether the Cavs could truly shed the baggage of last year. What a ride this was. A 1 seed once again, they fell behind by 14 early to 16th-seeded GardnerWebb in this year’s opening round, and a nightmare seemed to be unfolding. But this time, they overcame it. Then, they beat Purdue in the Elite Eight when the game looked lost, and did the same against Auburn on Saturday — getting bailed out by a foul call and Kyle Guy’s three free throws with 0.6 seconds left. “I told them, I just want a chance at a title fight one day,” Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. “That’s all I want. ... You’re never alone in the hills and the valleys we faced in the last year.”

Panthers hire Quenneville SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Dale Tallon and Joel Quenneville are together again, and the Florida Panthers are ready for them to recreate their magic. Quenneville — who is second on the NHL’s all-time victory list — was hired Monday to coach the Panthers, who started their offseason with a splash. It’s also a reunion, after Tallon hired Quenneville to coach Chicago in 2008 and wound up watching him win three Stanley Cups there in a six-year span. Tallon wasn’t there for those Chicago titles; he was fired less than a year after delivering Quenneville. Finally, now, he gets a chance to work with Quenneville again. “Fate is a wonderful thing in my life,” Tallon said. “It’s like a blessing for me. This is a blessing. There are a lot of coaching jobs available. We wanted to get it done because he’s a popular guy and a lot of teams out there would love to have him as their coach.” Quenneville’s hiring was announced less than 36 hours after the Panthers’ season ended. Players were gathered Monday for exit interviews, an annual end-of-season rite. This time, they stuck around to meet the new boss, too.

Hunter’s key 3 in OT gave Virginia a 75-73 lead, and after the teams traded possessions, Tech guard Davide Moretti scrambled after a loose ball heading onto Virginia’s end of the court. It appeared it would be Texas Tech ball, but a replay showed Moretti’s pinkie finger had barely scraped the ball. Virginia got possession, and worked the ball into Ty Jerome, who got fouled and made two free throws. Brandone Francis missed a 3 on the other end, and Virginia pulled away — the first time this game felt remotely comfortable, even

defenses that allowed way more than the projected total of 118 points — but just kept coming back. Jarrett Culver, also lottery-pick material, made a spinning left-handed layup over Hunter with 35 seconds left in regulation to put the Red Raiders ahead 66-65. After Jerome missed a teardrop on the other end, Norense Odiase got fouled and made two free throws to make it 68-65. The nation’s best defense couldn’t afford to give up a 3, but Jerome skipped a pass to Hunter, who was open on the wing — and spotted

up and drained it. Culver missed a 3 with Guy in his face with a second left, and we were headed to overtime, the first extra session in the final since Kansas beat Memphis in 2008. “In terms of my guys, I’ve never been more proud,” Red Raiders coach Chris Beard said. “This is real life. We’ll bounce back.” The last five minutes of regulation and the OT featured several one-onone matchups between the two NBA-bound stars, and Hunter came out the winner. He finished 8 for 16 after an

after Guy made a 3 to give the Cavs a 10-point lead with 10:22 left in regulation. Guy is not Virginia’s only clutch free-throw shooter, by the way.

Gibbs needs to find seat for Bell in big leagues

J

oe Gibbs has too many winning drivers in his organization. It is a good problem to have, but one that has led to increased speculation about his plans to juggle all his talent. The Gibbs organization swept Bristol Motor Speedway last weekend as Christopher Bell won the Xfinity Series race Saturday followed by yet another Kyle Busch victory in the Cup race on Sunday. Gibbs drivers have won five of eight Cup races — including the Daytona 500 — and five of seven Xfinity Series races. It’s problematic because Gibbs can’t keep Bell stashed away in the Xfinity Series forever and he simply doesn’t have available seats for everyone. Denny Hamlin, a two-time Daytona 500 winner and twotime winner already this season, is signed beyond 2020 and so are Busch and Martin Truex Jr. Erik Jones said at Bristol he is in active conversations on a contract extension with JGR. But Bell has proven himself time and again in NASCAR’s ladder system. He won the Truck Series title in 2017 and followed with seven victories last year in

the Xfinity Series while making it to the championship finale. Now he’s back in NASCAR’s secondtier series for a second season, with the entire industry aware the 24-year-old needs to be promoted to the big leagues. Gibbs was coy on how he plans to address his abundance of riches. “You don’t comment much on the future other than to say Christopher has a place with us long term, and so does Erik. That’s our goal,” Gibbs said. “That’s what we’ll keep working on. It’s great to have young people coming, young talent, it’s very important for us.” Gibbs has made cutthroat business moves before, such as letting Joey Logano go when he had the chance to sign Matt Kenseth. While Kenseth won 15 races in five seasons with Gibbs, he also was eventually cycled out when Gibbs needed a seat for Jones. Kenseth is now essentially retired and Logano won last year’s Cup championship for Roger Penske. Daniel Suarez wasn’t brought back this season when Gibbs had a chance to add Truex, the 2017 Cup champion. Suarez is off to a decent start with Stewart-Haas

I n T he P its J enna F ryer Racing. In theory, both Hamlin and Jones opened the season on the “hot seat” because Bell is ready to go Cup racing and Gibbs needs a place to put him. Hamlin was coming off the first winless season of his Cup career, but opened the season with another Daytona 500 win and then added a victory at Texas. He bristled at speculation Gibbs would move him to make room for Bell. “Who says I’m on a hot seat? What do they know that I don’t? That’s what I don’t understand,” Hamlin said. “You all don’t know my relationship with my sponsor, the team or anything. I’ve never once thought that someone could go out there and do a better job than I could in my own car.” Jones, in his third full season, won just once last year and hasn’t been as competitive so far this year as his Gibbs teammates. But he said his manager is working

hard with Gibbs on ironing out an extension, and neither he nor Hamlin has felt job pressure. “I think both of us have felt pretty comfortable where we’re at,” Jones said. “I think Christopher is a great driver, but still when he moves to the Cup level, it’s going to take time to develop. You’re going to take a year or two to really get where you want to be at that level. “I feel like I’m going to be (at JGR) for a long time. I’m sure Christopher will get his opportunity in Cup at some point. He’s definitely got the talent and he’s good enough to do it, so he’ll get there for sure.” But where? Toyota has a partnership with Leavine Family Racing that gives the single-car team technical support and assistance from the Gibbs group. Matt DiBenedetto is in his first year with Leavine and theoretically has the same equipment as the Gibbs drivers. The difference is in depth and resources, and it makes Leavine an iffy proposition for Bell. A deal could be worked to get Bell in a second Leavine car, but expansion might stretch the small

team too far. Bell could also just replace DiBenedetto, but isolating him on a mediocre extension of the big-league team is risky. Bell is considered a rising star because of his dirt track prowess, grassroots racing fan base and his hard-charging style — and racing is a resultsdriven business. Sticking Bell with the B-team just to get him a seat could backfire if he struggles. Dave Wilson, president and general manager of Toyota Racing Development, noted driver lineups are up to teams. But he knows the resources that have been put into developing Bell, Jones, Suarez (who now drives a Ford), and even K&N Series driver Hailie Deegan. “As Toyota has been vested in driver development for several years, we accept that these types of logjams are inevitable,” Wilson said. “We’re still working with all of our team partners on 2020 plans, but don’t have anything to talk about right now.” The Bell situation needs to be solved. He is ready now and NASCAR is ready for him now. It’s not the worst problem for Gibbs, but it could get complicated over the next few months.

Cubs blow past Pirates in home opener By The Associated Press

CHICAGO — Kyle Schwarber hit a two-run homer and Chicago’s beleaguered bullpen stepped up after Jon Lester departed with left hamstring tightness, leading the Cubs over the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-0 in their home opener on Monday. Brad Brach, Brandon Kintzler, Randy Rosario and Pedro Strop combined for seven innings of fourhit ball after Lester was removed with two on and no outs in the third. Brach (1-0) pitched two innings for his first win with the Cubs.

Davis hit three flyballs before striking out in the seventh and eighth innings, leaving him 0 for 28 this season and 0 for 49 since hitting a double early in a game Sept. 14. The previous longest drought by a nonpitcher was 46 at-bats, by Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Eugenio Vélez.

Cheseto to run Boston Marathon Former UAA athlete looks forward to para athlete divisions in 1975. Once again, the wheelchair racers will be the first to break the tape on Boylston Street on April 15, when the Boston Athletic Association stages the event for the 123rd time. But scattered among the field of 30,000 that follows will also be people riding handcycles, running on prosthetic legs or conquering other physical impairments in the hopes of a personal best, or the satisfaction of finishing. “They’re coming to our events, and no one knows they’re there,” said Marla Runyan, a two-time Olympian and five-time Paralympic champion who has led the association’s Athletes with Disabilities program for the past two years. “The B.A.A. wants to see people to see them for the athletes that they are.” Starting next year, the organization will award titles — and prize money — in three divisions, recognizing not just the wheelchair racers who have been an official part of the race for four decades but also ambulatory runners who are visually impaired or amputees. “We wanted to make sure that we were paying attention to this emerging element of the sport,” B.A.A. CEO Tom Grilk said. Runners will compete for a $1,500 top prize — men and women — from a total purse of $16,500 that is on top of the $125,000 prize pool for the wheelchair division.

Runyan, who was the top American woman in Boston when she finished fifth in 2003, has helped create qualification standards for next year’s para athlete divisions, and she will invite runners who meet them. The organization is also hosting a U.S. para athletics classification session during marathon weekend. (For example, Cheseto is T62, double below the knee amputation; Runyan, who is legally blind, competed as a T13 against other runners with visual impairments.) “I think it’s been a long time coming,” said Adam Popp, who lost part of his right leg to an improvised explosive device while serving with the Air Force in Afghanistan. “There’s no other race out there that’s going to provide what they do. And now that the ball is rolling, hopefully more people in my situation will get into the sport.” That would be a “happy accident,” Runyan said, which could lead more races to include para athlete categories; that, in turn, could encourage more runners with physical impairments to run. Ultimately, Popp would like to see a Paralympic marathon for lower-limb amputees, which hasn’t existed since 1996. “That would be my dream. But that’s what I’ve been waiting for since November of 2015,” he said. “I know a lot of other people have been waiting longer.” Popp, who finished the

Los Angeles Marathon in 3 hours, 29 minutes, 36 seconds last month on what was supposed to be a Boston training run, said one the biggest obstacles for para athletes is having peers to train with, or run with, or even just to see on the course demonstrating what is possible. “For people who have been there, that are in the hospital bed and they have started training for their 5K, they really need those peers to look up to and kind of guide the way,” Popp said. “I think that what the Boston Marathon is going to do in 2020 is bring in elite level para athletes who can show others who might be coming up through the recovery what’s going to be possible.” Some of them, Popp knows, will be among the hundreds who were wounded on Boylston Street in 2013 by two pressure cooker bombs with a design that maximized lower limb injuries, and were horrifically effective. While the events of 2013 don’t motivate the B.A.A., Grilk said, it has made them more aware of a community that looks to the race for inspiration. “The role of 2013 is that more people are watching,” he said. “And if it turns out that what we’re doing is favorably received by people who were so adversely affected by what happened to in 2013, then so much the better.”

By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — When Marko Cheseto lines up in Hopkinton for the start of the Boston Marathon next week, he will already be looking past the finish line, 26.2 miles away. It’s next year, when organizers will christen three new para athlete divisions, that he will have a chance to claim something he covets even more than a new personal best: a full-fledged Boston Marathon victory, and the possibility of climbing the podium on his two prosthetic legs just steps away from the spot where so many lost their limbs in the 2013 finish line attacks. “I want those who were injured through that to know that we are here with them,” said Cheseto, an AllAmerican distance runner at Alaska-Anchorage who lost both feet to frostbite after he was stranded in a blizzard for 56 hours. “We, as human beings, are very resilient; we have a lot of good people out there; we can show our solidarity out there,” said Cheseto, a native Kenyan who became a U.S. citizen in November — seven years to the day after he went missing. “Together, we can do good things.” The world’s oldest and most prestigious annual marathon, Boston was the first major 26.2-miler (42.195 kilometer) to include a wheelchair division,

Tommy Pham scored two runs and extended his club-record on-base streak to 43 games. Hunter Wood, recalled from Triple-A Durham, threw three scoreless for his first big league save.

Today in History Today is Tuesday, April 9, the 99th day of 2019. There are 266 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 9, 1968, funeral services, private and public, were held for Martin Luther King Jr. at the Ebenezer Baptist Church and Morehouse College in Atlanta, five days after the civil rights leader was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. On this date: In 1865, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered his army to Union Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House in Virginia. In 1913, the first game was played at Ebbets Field, the newly built home of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who lost to the Philadelphia Phillies, 1-0. In 1939, singer Marian Anderson performed a concert at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., after being denied the use of Constitution Hall by the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1940, during World War II, Germany invaded Denmark and Norway. In 1942, during World War II, some 75,000 Philippine and American defenders on Bataan surrendered to Japanese troops, who forced the prisoners into what became known as the Bataan Death March; thousands died or were killed en route. In 1959, NASA presented its first seven astronauts: Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, John Glenn, Gus Grissom, Wally Schirra, Alan Shepard and Donald Slayton. Architect Frank Lloyd Wright, 91, died in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1965, the newly built Astrodome in Houston featured its first baseball game, an exhibition between the Astros and the New York Yankees, with President Lyndon B. Johnson in attendance. (The Astros won, 2-1, in 12 innings.) In 1979, officials declared an end to the crisis involving the Three Mile Island Unit 2 nuclear reactor in Pennsylvania, 12 days after a partial core meltdown. In 1983, the space shuttle Challenger ended its first mission with a safe landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California. In 1984, “Terms of Endearment” won five Academy Awards, including best picture, best actress for Shirley MacLaine and best supporting actor for Jack Nicholson. In 1992, former Panamanian ruler Manuel Noriega was convicted in Miami of eight drug and racketeering charges; he served a 17-year U.S. prison sentence. In 2003, jubilant Iraqis celebrated the collapse of Saddam Hussein’s regime, beheading a toppled statue of their longtime ruler in downtown Baghdad and embracing American troops as liberators. Ten years ago: North Korea’s rubber-stamp parliament appointed Kim Jong Il to a third term as leader. Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart, 22, and two others were killed in a car crash by a suspected drunken driver. (Andrew Thomas Gallo was convicted of three counts of second-degree murder and sentenced to 51 years to life in prison.) Five years ago: A 16-year-old boy armed with two knives went on a rampage at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania, stabbing 20 students and a security guard (all of whom survived). President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, visited Fort Hood, Texas, the scene of a shooting a week earlier in which three U.S. Army soldiers were killed by a fellow soldier who then took his own life. One year ago: Federal agents raided the office of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, seizing records on matters including a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels. Trump denounced Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation as “an attack on our country,” prompting new speculation that he might seek the removal of the Justice Department’s special counsel. Opening statements began in the retrial of Bill Cosby, charged with drugging and molesting Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home. (Cosby was convicted and sentenced to three to 10 years in prison.) Facebook began alerting some users that their data had been swept up in the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal. Fleetwood Mac announced that singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham would not be part of the band’s new tour. (The tour began in October with Mike Campbell and Neil Finn replacing Buckingham.) Today’s Birthdays: Satirical songwriter and mathematician Tom Lehrer is 91. Naturalist Jim Fowler is 89. Actor Jean-Paul Belmondo is 86. Actress Michael Learned is 80. Country singer Margo Smith is 77. Country singer Hal Ketchum is 66. Actor Dennis Quaid is 65. Comedian Jimmy Tingle is 64. Country musician Dave Innis (Restless Heart) is 60.

Texts rock the foundation of relationship built on trust his/her appearance in a dream, she can text whomever she wishes, and she shouldn’t have to account to you for it. The two of you need to have a serious conversation about the parameters of your relationship. The problem may be your insecurity, Abigail Van Buren and if you are going to have a successful outcome with anyone, you had better learn to control it.

DEAR ABBY: My stepfather, “Ron,” and my mother finalized their divorce a month ago. He has been part of my life for 19 years, since I was 10. He was a grandfather to my two boys, and because he adopted me when I was 17, I took his last name. My problem is that two years ago, when Ron left Mom, he cut off all contact with me and my boys. No calls, texts, messages. Nothing! I am still coming to terms with all of it, and it’s hard to explain to my 7-year-old where his grandfather is. Ron was a father to me after my biological father passed away. It’s painful to think that he

-- LEFT IN THE DARK IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR LEFT: Ron may think that because he and your mother are no longer married, your loyalties lie with her and you don’t want him in your life. I agree with your husband. Reach out to him and your stepsiblings. Tell them you and your children love them and still want them to be part of your lives. They may need the reassurance. And if they still prefer to have no contact, you will know you did everything possible to keep the relationships intact.

A safe swap Dear Readers: BUYING AND SELLING ITEMS ONLINE is really popular right now. Post an item with pictures and an accurate description, somebody sees it and wants it, and you agree to meet for payment and delivery. But where should two strangers meet? Police departments are recognizing this trend and are concerned about everyone’s safety. One of the safest places to meet is the lobby of a police station or substation. It’s open all the time, and it is staffed with police personnel. Safety is priority one! Here are some other hints about meeting to complete an online sale: * Tell your family where you’re going. * Take your phone with you. * If something doesn’t feel right, it’s not; trust your gut. If the sale goes smoothly, you might have a repeat customer, but be smart about safety. Ask your city’s 311 service for more information. -- Heloise CHEAT SHEET Dear Heloise: I read you faithfully in the San Antonio Express-News. My gripe is this: Why doesn’t any company offer separate fitted bottom sheets? Bottom sheets always wear thinner than the top, and the elastic goes out even sooner. (I’m talking 10- to 20-year quality brands.) I’m at an age when sewing projects are not on my to-do list, so I won’t be altering top sheets. I don’t care about color matching -- bottom sheets don’t show once a bed is made. -- Trish S., New Braunfels, Texas Trish, thanks for your readership, and you make a valid point! The manufacturers added extra pillowcases by request, so two fitted sheets should be next. -- Heloise

-- LESS TRUSTFUL NOW DEAR LESS TRUSTFUL: If everything has been going well in your relationship with this woman for a year, why are you looking at text messages that pop up on her phone? Although not all people would text an ex about

may not have loved me or my boys like I thought he did. How can a father/grandfather do that so easily? What’s worse is his children (my step-siblings) have also cut us off. I have no idea why. My husband thinks I should contact him, but I don’t think I should have to beg someone to be in my life, especially if it’s a parent/child situation. What are your thoughts? Any guidance would be appreciated.

2019 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

DEAR ABBY: I have been seeing a woman for a year, and everything seemed pretty sweet. She told me when we met that trust is important to her as she has had issues in past relationships, including with her ex-husband, who was seeing an ex without disclosing it to her. This week I saw a series of texts pop up on her phone from someone I have never heard her mention. When I asked about it, she said they were from an “old friend.” I found it troubling and asked her more about it. She then mentioned she had been in a romantic relationship with him many years ago. She also disclosed that the text exchange was started because she told him (via text) that she had dreamed about him the night before. She assured me her dream was not romantic or of a sexual nature, and her intent in reaching out wasn’t romantic. Despite this, my suspicion meter has gone through the roof, and I’m having a hard time trusting her story. I find this especially baffling given her history. Am I overreacting?

p.m., Soldotna Alaska State Troopers responded to Mile 1 of the Kenai Spur Highway to a report of a collision involving two vehicles. The driver of a grey 2015 Dodge Ram truck was identified as Aquilina M. Active, 24, of Nanwalek. Investigation revealed that Active had pulled out from a frontage road in front of another vehicle, causing a collision. The other vehicle was a black 2007 Pontiac G-6, operated by Mary J. Grzybowski, 40, of Nikiski. Both parties were taken to Central Peninsula Hospital, after reporting minor injuries. Both drivers reported wearing seat belts, and airbags were not deployed.

McConnell was taken to Wildwood Correctional Center. n On Apr. 3 at about 5:10 a.m., Alaska State Troopers patrol observed a vehicle traveling at high rate of speed on the Kenai Spur Highway. As it turned onto Holt-Lamplight Road, it drove into the opposite lane of travel, and a turn signal was not activated. At that time, troopers activated emergency equipment, and the vehicle sped up. While on Holt-Lamplight Road, both vehicles

reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour, the suspect again traveling in the opposite lane of travel. The vehicle’s operator, Trevor Hallstead, 24, was arrested and charged with felony eluding, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, and no insurance. n On Apr. 2 at 1:55 a.m., Soldotna Alaska State Troopers received a call of a suspicious vehicle parking in multiple driveways on Funny River Road.

as he followed the vehicle around curves. According to the affidavit, the vehicle then turned onto Holt Lamplight Road and began driving on the wrong side of the road. The trooper in pursuit reported speeds of over 100 mph down Holt Lamplight, with the vehicle allegedly on the opposite side of the road

during portions of the pursuit. According the affidavit, the vehicle in question sped up after the trooper turned on his lights and siren. The pursuit continued down Parsons Avenue and then Island Lake Road and while on Island Lake another vehicle was forced to pull over to avoid being hit by the speeding driver while

going around a curve, according to troopers. The vehicle eventually turned down Blockade Glacier Road and evaded the trooper in pursuit. A short while later, a resident of Blockade Glacier Road called to report a suspicious vehicle in their driveway. Troopers arrived at the residence to find Hall-

stead walking away from the scene, according to the affidavit. Troopers identified Hallstead as the driver and placed him under arrest. Hallstead told troopers that he had no insurance on the vehicle, and Hallstead was also driving with a passenger in the car, troopers reported. Hallstead faces one

count of reckless driving, a specially classified misdemeanor, one count of reckless endangerment, a class A misdemeanor, one count of failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer, a Class C felony, and one count of motor vehicle liability insurance requirement, a specially classified misdemeanor.

criminal conspiracy between the campaign and the Kremlin. He has also said that Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice, instead presenting evidence on both sides of the question. Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided that the evidence was insufficient to

establish obstruction. Facing the intensifying concerns from Democrats that he may have whitewashed Mueller’s findings, Barr has twice moved to defend, or at least explain, his handling of the process since receiving the special counsel’s report. He has said that he did not intend for his four-page summary

of Mueller’s main conclusions to be an “exhaustive recounting” of his work and that he could not immediately release the entire report because it included grand jury material and other sensitive information that needed to first be redacted. He will likely be asked to further explain himself

at the hearing Tuesday and at a Senate appropriations subcommittee hearing Wednesday that is also on the budget. Barr is scheduled to testify on the report itself at separate hearings before the Senate and House judiciary committees on May 1 and May 2. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York

Democrat and chairman of the House judiciary panel, confirmed the May 2 date on Twitter and said he would like Mueller to testify. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has said he would be satisfied hearing only from Barr and not Mueller.

in Cook Inlet. “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to share information with citizens and stakeholders about Cook Inlet’s critical pipeline infrastructure,” CIRCAC Executive Director Michael Munger said in the press release. “Delivering information to the public and bringing their ideas or questions to the operating companies is an important part of how we achieve our mission.”

All of this is part of the Cook Inlet Pipeline Integrity Assessment project, which is being led by Nuka Research and was discussed at the CIRCAC board meeting on April 5. The assessment is funded by a Technical Assistance Grant from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration. During a presentation at the CIRCAC board meeting, Tim Robertson of Nuka Research updated

the board on the current state of the project. Robertson said that a recently organized panel of experts in the oil and gas industry will review the pipeline inventory report this month and meet with Cook Inlet operators in May to make recommendations on ways to keep the pipelines safe and productive into the future. The final report is expected this fall, according to Robertson’s presentation.

said Paul. “These individuals need that assurance that somebody cares enough to give them a chance, and these employers are fantastic for that.” Faulkner said that their target population with this program will be those in recovery for substance abuse. “The benefits of having a job while in recovery are a hundred-fold. It increases self-esteem because they want to work, and it pulls them out of negative behavior.” Paul and six other employment specialists from Frontier will attend a seven-week training course starting on April 29 and

ending in June. This course will familiarize Paul and the others with the IPS model. Faulkner said that after they complete their training they will discuss with the rest of the Frontier team how to best implement the model into the agencies already existing programs. One of the Employment Specialists, Nikki Marcano, said on Monday that she looks forward to the seven-week training program so that she can gain new skills for her position. “I’m excited to actually learn and take the training, and get the tools that I need to help,” said Mar-

cano. She also said that the grant will allow Frontier to take more referrals from other agencies on the peninsula and work more collaboratively with them, such as PCHS or Freedom House. “It’s a pretty exciting grant. It opens up a whole bunch of new doors,” Marcano said. Frontier Community Services currently offers a variety of employment and independent living assistance for individuals and families. They are located in the Copper Center on Kalifornsky Beach Road, and their phone number is 907-262-6331.

only region of 19 where glaciers are not shrinking, which Zemp said is due to local climate conditions. Since 1961, the world has lost 10.6 trillion tons of ice and snow, the study found. That’s enough to cover the Lower 48 U.S. states in about 4 feet of ice. Scientists have known for a long time that global warming caused by human activities like burning coal, gasoline and diesel for electricity and transportation is making Earth lose its ice. They have been especially concerned with the large ice sheets covering Greenland and Antarctica. This study, “is telling us there’s much more to the story,” said Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, who wasn’t part of the study. “The influence of glaciers

on sea level is bigger than we thought.” A number of factors are making sea levels rise. The biggest cause is that oceans are getting warmer, which makes water expand. The new figures show glacier melt is a bigger contributor than thought, responsible for about 25% to 30% of the yearly rise in oceans, Zemp said. Rising seas threaten coastal cities around the world and put more people at risk of flooding during storms. Glaciers grow in winter and shrink in summer, but as the Earth has warmed, they are growing less and shrinking more. Zemp said warmer summer temperatures are the main reason glaciers are shrinking faster. While people think of glaciers as polar issues,

shrinking mountain glaciers closer to the equator can cause serious problems for people who depend on them, said Twila Moon, a snow and ice data center scientist who also wasn’t part of the study. She said people in the Andes, for example, rely on the glaciers for drinking and irrigation water each summer. A separate study Monday in Environmental Research Letters confirmed faster melting and other changes in the Arctic. It found that in winter, the Arctic is warming 2.8 times faster than the rest of the Northern Hemisphere. Overall, the region is getting more humid, cloudier and wetter. “It’s on steroids, it’s hyperactive,” said lead author Jason Box, a scientist for the Danish Meteorological Institute.

In brief 3 American soldiers, 1 US contractor killed in Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan — Three American service members and a U.S. contractor were killed when their convoy hit a roadside bomb on Monday near the main U.S. base in Afghanistan, the U.S. forces said. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. The U.S. and NATO Resolute Support mission said the four Americans were killed near the Bagram Air Base, north of Kabul, while three others were wounded in the explosion. The base in Bagram district is located in northern Parwan province and serves as the main U.S. air facility in the country. The wounded were evacuated and are receiving medical care, the statement said. It added that in accordance with U.S. Department of Defense policy, the names of service members killed in action were being withheld until after the notification of next of kin. In their claim of responsibility, the Taliban said they launched the attack and that one of their suicide bombers detonated his explosives-laden vehicle near the NATO base. The conflicting accounts could not be immediately reconciled. On Tuesday, local officials said at least five Afghan civilians were wounded in the commotion after the attack on the American convoy. Four were passers-by and the fifth was a driver of a car going down the road, said Abdul Raqib Kohistani, the Bagram district police chief. Abdul Shakor Qudosi, the district administrative chief in Bagram, said American soldiers opened fire immediately after their convoy was bombed.

Judge blocks Trump’s asylum policy but delays enforcement A U.S. judge decided Monday to block the Trump administration’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for an immigration court to hear their cases, but the ruling is on hold for several days. Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco granted a request on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America and legal advocacy groups to halt the practice while their lawsuit moves forward, but he held off on enforcing his decision until Friday to give the government a chance to ask an appeals court for a review. The policy lacks sufficient protections to ensure migrants don’t face “undue risk to their lives or freedom” in Mexico, the judge said. Seeborg also said a law that President Donald Trump’s administration cited as its authority to send back migrants does not apply to asylum seekers such as those who sued. It was not immediately clear whether the administration would ask an appeals court to put the ruling on hold. The U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment. Trump tweeted that the ruling was “unfair to the U.S.” The launch of the policy in January at the nation’s busiest border crossing — in San Diego — marked an unprecedented change to the U.S. asylum system, government officials and asylum experts said. Families seeking asylum typically have been released in the U.S. with notices to appear in court. — Associated Press

ties of any given job.” Paul said that Frontier currently has a job placement rate of about 80 percent for its clients, and he hopes that number will improve with their use of the IPS model.

The glaciers shrinking fastest are in central Europe, the Caucasus region, western Canada, the U.S. Lower 48 states, New Zealand and near the tropics. Glaciers in these places on average are losing more than 1 percent of their mass each year, according to a study in Monday’s journal Nature. “In these regions, at the current glacier loss rate, the glaciers will not survive the century,” Zemp said. Zemp’s team used ground and satellite measurements to look at 19,000 glaciers, far more than previous studies. They determined that southwestern Asia is the

Meet Eclipse Eclipse is a beautiful ebony girl with a fluffy coat and a very impressive ruff. She is quite slim, maybe 4 or 5 years old and a super lovebug. She is okay with other cats and dogs existing in the house. But she prefers to ignore them and focus all her attention on her humans that she loves beyond all else. If you’re looking for affection and devotion, Eclipse is the girl for you!
