In the news
Marijuana measure opposition group announces M contribution K JUNEAU (AP) — A group formed to fight a ballot initiative that would legalize recreational marijuana use in Alaska said Monday that it’s gotten its first major contribution. “Big Marijuana. Big Mistake. Vote No on 2” said Chenega Corp. has committed $25,000 to the cause. The president and CEO of the Alaska Native corporation, Charles Totemoff, said in a news release that the issue is about the health and well-being of Alaskans. He said the contribution is an investment in Alaska’s future. The Alaska Democratic Party, declined to take sides on the debate at its recent convention. The Alaska GOP passed a resolution opposing the initiative at its convention earlier this month. The initiative, scheduled for the November ballot, would legalize and regulate recreational use of marijuana by those 21 years of age or older. Taylor Bickford, a spokesman for the ballot group behind the initiative, said marijuana should be taxed and regulated in a way similar to alcohol. He said by email that there’s no reason to allow “criminal organizations in the underground market to maintain monopoly control over this industry.”

Blazes keep fire crews busy Wildfire threatens village of Tyonek
Funny River fire advances toward Tustumena Lake
By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion

Just after 8:30 p.m., Sam Harrel, information officer with the Division of Forestry, said the retardant crews have been applying is working to slow the fire down. The blaze, fueled by high winds, was moving toward the village of Tyonek, which is located on the west side of Cook Inlet. Multiple fire agencies on scene are battling the blaze. Andy Alexandrou, public information officer with the Division of Forestry, Kenai office, said the fire could potentially reach the village, but some natural breaks and sloughs between the fire and the village help to slow the fire down. Harrel said smoke jumpers and two retardant tankers are working the fire, which is being handled by the Division of Forestry’s Mat-Su area personnel.

Reports: Peninsula bears out and about Adele Bearup stands next to a commercial-sized dumpster, which was pushed over by bears. The Bearups live on Mile 91 of the Sterling Highway.
By KAYLEE OSOWSKI Peninsula Clarion
The local office of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has only received a handful of bear reports so far this spring. While reports number fewer than previous years, bears are out and going through people’s trash. Teea McBride, a Kenai resident who lives on Birch Street, said in an email Monday that a 5-foot tall black bear visited her yard recently and got into a bag of garbage. Tom Bearup, who lives at Mile 91 of the Sterling Highway, said bears tipped over and

Woman walks 2 miles for help after JBER bear attack By MARK THIESSEN Associated Press
JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON — Bloodied and dazed after being slashed by the claws of a brown bear, a woman struggled to walk 2 miles along a curvy, hilly trail to find someone to help her. The woman, who has asked that her identity not be released, was hospitalized in stable condition Monday, a day after the attack on an Anchorage military base, officials said. She suffered lacerations to her neck, arms and legs. The woman was jogging with her soldier husband Sunday morning on the northwestern part of the sprawling Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The couple became separated,
The survival instinct for that woman is phenomenal.’ — Mark Sledge, JBER conservation officer and as she jogged down a hill near a bend, she came upon a bear leaving a trail at the same time. Air Force Maj. Angela Webb said they startled each other, and the bear, with two cubs in tow, assumed a defensive position in the largely wooded, remote area. “The bear attacked her, defending her babies, seeing her as a threat,” said Mark Sledge,
senior conservation law enforcement officer at the base. The bear knocked down the woman and took at least one swipe at her. Officials still haven’t interviewed the woman and don’t know if she was knocked unconscious or played dead until the animal left the area. Playing dead is the appropriate response when meeting a female bear protecting cubs, Sledge said. Authorities don’t know how long she lay there after the attack. At some point, the bloodcovered woman was able to start up the rough terrain for the road, about 2 miles away. “The survival instinct for that woman is phenomenal,” Sledge said. “The trauma that she went through and the walk See ATTACK, page A-7 C M Y
went through his commercialsized Dumpster. Bearup found the mess Monday. “I mean the whole canister is in our front yard turned upside down,” Bearup said. He said two brown bears have been sighted in his neighborhood recently, so he figures they’re the culprits. He said they left some scratch
marks on the bin and scattered the trash around looking for food. Jeff Selinger, area wildlife biologist with Fish and Game, has received about four brown and black bear reports in the last week to 10 days, but he doesn’t have an exact count. He said the number is likely down due to a combination of factors. “I think more and more people are being pretty diligent about minimizing attractants,” he said. … “Another (factor) is we’ve had … relatively high (bear) harvests the last few years. That could be removing See BEARS, page A-7
Man arrested for firing from moving vehicle By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion
An Anchorage man is in jail after Alaska State Troopers allege he fired gunshots from a moving vehicle in the direction of houses while intoxicated on Kalifornsky Beach Road Sunday afternoon. Troopers arrested Darrel J. Shannon, 37, and charged him with misconduct involving weapons in the first, second and fourth degrees. Shannon was arraigned in Kenai District Court on Monday. Shannon was the passenger in a 2003 blue Ford Mustang Cobra convertible driven by Thomas J. Northcott, 56, of Soldotna. Troopers received a report from a resident in
the K-Beach neighborhood near Jones Road that someone was shooting a handgun out of the vehicle at about 3 p.m., according to a trooper’s complaint filed in Kenai District Court Monday. Trooper J.A. Woodruff conducted a traffic stop at Mile 20 on K-Beach Road and an investigation revealed Shannon possessed a Glock handgun that was missing two rounds. Northcott had a revoked driver’s license from a past driving while intoxicated charge. Troopers issued him a misdemeanor citation and released him to a responsible party, according to the affidavit. Shannon initially denied he fired the weapon, but later See GUN, page A-7

TSA reminds Alaska tourists: No ulus on flights FAIRBANKS (AP) — The summer tourist season is about to arrive in Alaska, and the U.S. Transportation Security Administration is reminding passengers that a popular Eskimo-style, half-moon-shaped knife isn’t allowed in carry-on bags. The Fairbanks Daily NewsMiner reports that visitors to the state often forget that the knife, known as ulu, is banned like all other knives. The TSA has gone so far as to create special placards for the Fairbanks International Airport, displaying a picture of an ulu with a line through it. Fairbanks daily air traffic is expected to jump from about 1,000 to 1,500 people in the next few weeks. Although it’s early in the season, the local TSA collection already has four ulus, all new in their original packaging.

Clarion Question Results The Clarion question for last week was:
Should the Kenai Peninsula Borough collect a bed tax to fund tourism promotion efforts? The following selected comments were submitted by our readers: “Would this tax be a seasonal tax for the tourist? Is there not enough monies spent on tourism promotion already? What new forms of promotion efforts would warrant such a tax? Are these promotions going to work? A major feature for the tourist crowd on the Kenai Pen-
Results are not scientific
insula is the king salmon, which for the past couple of years have been in decline. Because of the this king salmon situation, I would not recommend changing funding for tourism promotion effort. If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.”
“If they give them any more they must find a way to track the effectiveness of the ads so they can determine if it was cost effective or just used to pay for salaries and to build up the egos.”

Larry Eldon Wilshusen Larry Eldon Wilshusen, 79, passed away Thursday, Sept. 18, 2013 in Marysville, California, of natural causes. He was surrounded continually by his family in his last few days and hours, and died peacefully in his sleep. Larry came to Kenai in 1962, with his wife Geneva and five sons in tow from Paso Robles, California. In 1963 his only daughter was born in a Soldotna doctor’s office. A lifelong Jehovah’s Witness, Larry came to the Kenai Peninsula to “serve where the need was great.” Over the years Larry assisted many to learn of the wonderful promises held out by Jehovah God in his word the Bible, to restore the earth to the paradise conditions he had originally intended for the earth, as well as to return man to perfect health in a peaceful “new earth.” He continued in that preaching work up until his death. In 1973, he moved his family from Kenai to Homer, where he lived until 1987 before returning to his native California. During his time in Alaska he helped establish the local Kenai congregation as well one in Homer. Larry returned to the Kenai area in 1999 and lived there until bad health forced him to move once again to California, in 2012, to be cared for by family until his death. Larry is survived by his five sons, Anthony, Frank, Lance, Noel, Monte, and by his daughter Lori. He is also survived by his 13 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. He believed with his whole heart the promise that in paradise earth the dead would be called out of their memorial tombs. “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, …” (John 5:28, 29) We, his family, look forward to that day when we can welcome back ALL of our dead loved ones and show them how wonderful and loving our God Jehovah is and that all that he promises will certainly come to pass. A private service for his family will take place in Homer on Saturday, May 24, 2014. Messages for the family can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Rest in Jehovah’s perfect memory Dad, until we see you again.

What Others Say
Politics making monsters of men Republicans have created a new mon-
ster intended to scare Alaska’s voters. It’s name: Sen. Mark Begich. Anyone who’s seen a Godzilla movie, whether it’s the reboot that hit theaters this week or an oldie but goodie from the 1950s and 60s, knows the only way to defeat a giant monster is by pitting it against another of equal ferocity. Democrats know this too, which is why TV and radio ads have peppered mainstream media to warn everyone that another beast, which goes by the name Dan Sullivan, may soon be set loose on Tokyo (oops, we meant Alaska). The political ads playing have told us very little of the candidates they’re backing, instead honing in on how sinister, devious, manipulative and/or weak the other guy is. Gone are the days of campaign ads where candidates explain their stance on key issues and qualifications for office. Such sentiments are too tame and civilized for the battle royal we’ve come to know as election season. For campaigns, painting your opponent in a negative light too often is more tantalizing than shining a positive one on your own candidate. Based on all the negative spin, here is what we’re left to believe about two of the men running for U.S. Senate:
Hillary’s health matters
Karl Rove, the bete noir for Democrats (and some Republicans), has dared to raise questions about Hillary Clinton’s health. The New York Post first reported a conversation between Rove, former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and Dan Raviv of CBS News about Mrs. Clinton’s fall and concussion in December 2012. Rove was quoted as saying, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” Bill Clinton defended his wife saying she is “in better shape” than he is, but confirmed that it took “six months” of “very serious work” to recover from her concussion. A State Department spokesperson said it was 30 days. Which is it? The physical condition of a president, or one seeking the office, is a fundamental issue in any campaign and in every presidency. Virtually every president since George Washington has had health issues, some minor, some major. Not all presidents or their staffs were forthcoming about them. In 2002, The Atlantic Monthly compiled a list of presidential health cover-ups: “Concealing one’s true medical condition from the voting public is a time-honored tradition of the American presidency. William Henry Harrison, who died of pneumonia in April of 1841, after only one month in office, was the first Chief Executive to hide his physical frailties. Nine years later Zachary Taylor’s handlers refused to acknowledge that cholera had put the Presi-
dent’s life in jeopardy; they denied rumors of illness until he was near death, in July of 1850, sixteen months into his presidency. During Grover Cleveland’s second term, in the 1890s, the White House de- Cal Thomas ceived the public by dismissing allegations that surgeons had removed a cancerous growth from the President’s mouth; a vulcanized-rubber prosthesis disguised the absence of much of Cleveland’s upper left jaw and part of his palate. The public knew nothing about the implant until one of the President’s physicians revealed it in 1917, nine years after Cleveland’s death.” Perhaps the most famous cover-up occurred with Woodrow Wilson. In 1919, during his second term, Wilson embarked on a national tour to promote the World War I peace treaty he had personally negotiated. During the trip, Wilson experienced headaches and fatigue. The tour was aborted and Wilson returned to the White House where he suffered a stroke. Wilson’s inner circle, including his wife, doctor, private secretary and even the secretary of state, hid his condition. They told the press and cabinet the president had suffered a nervous breakdown. No one was allowed to see him, not even his vice president. Wilson retired from the White House in 1921 and died three years later.
That sequence of events couldn’t happen in today’s saturated media environment. Or could it? John F. Kennedy suffered from multiple health problems. Among the cover-up conspirators was Kennedy’s doctor, Janet Travell, who is credited with the idea of JFK’s rocking chair to ease his back pain and to convey a positive image. Bill Clinton refused to release his medical records to the public. Barack Obama released a one-page letter from his doctor testifying to his “excellent health.” Both men admitted to using recreational drugs in their youth, though Clinton ludicrously claimed he didn’t inhale. Obama smoked cigarettes. Just as most candidates for high office feel compelled to release their tax returns (Mitt Romney was a rare exception), all candidates, especially candidates for president, should publish their medical records. If Hillary Clinton’s concussion was not serious and there are no concerns about its long-term effects; if the glasses she now wears are not to correct double vision or other lingering symptoms attributed to her fall, then there is no problem. But if the reverse is true and she is covering it up, the public has a right to know and she has a duty to tell us. The media also have an obligation to keep up the pressure until the truth is known.

Dan ‘The Destroyer’ Sullivan Not only is Dan Sullivan not Alaskan enough for our Senate seat, but he’s never been to Alaska, couldn’t find it on a map (maybe that’s because it’s nestled southwest near Hawaii on most maps), and rumor has it he may not even believe Alaska is a real place. Sullivan wants to evict woodland critters from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge so thousands of acres of pristine tundra can be ravaged for the sake of petroleum. Legend has it, liquefied dinosaur bones is what Sullivan draws his power from. If left unchecked, he’d tap every oil reserve in Alaska and binge drink them dry. If elected, Sullivan would go on the kind of roaring rampage not seen since Sarah Palin’s “One Nation” bus tour in 2011. Even scarier: an election loss could lead to a series of bad reality TV shows. Oh, the humanity!
Mark ‘The Machine’ Begich The real Mark Begich has been locked away in a secret government facility located a mile beneath Area 51 ever since his 2008 win against former Sen. Ted Stevens. He’s being kept alive on a daily regimen of pink slime and farmed-raised salmon. We’re not sure which is more inhumane. The Begich we’ve seen in the public spotlight is little more than an artificial intelligence program created by Democrats. The program uses an algorithm enabling it to predict how Senate Democrats are going to vote with 99.9 percent accuracy. There’s still some hiccups with the program. Begich only voted with Democrats 87 percent of the time in 2013, but the explanation is a simple one. Begich’s programmers are the same folks responsible for HealthCare. gov. If elected to another term, however, Begich 2.0 will be unveiled and previous voting glitches will be corrected by upgrading his operating system to Windows 8.1. The upgrade still won’t incorporate a copy of Quicken, so don’t expect excessive government spending to stop any time soon. (Fun fact: When Begich missed two key Senate votes in January during a trip to Hawaii, he was actually undergoing a tune-up. ) All fun aside, there’s more to these candidates than what we’re being led to believe. However, unless their campaigns and party backers change the messages being relayed, residents will only hear ugly half-truths about each side. Alaskans would be better served learning why they should vote for a party’s candidate rather than why they shouldn’t vote for the other. The problem with smear campaigns is both sides get dirty and lose credibility once mud starts flying. As Alaskans, we should hold our would-be leaders to a higher standard. Keep elections focused on the issues. Until that happens, try and ignore the attack ads. They have little to offer outside of creating a monster of men. — Juneau Empire, May 18
Letters to the Editor Taxes on tourism already in place Who opened up this can of worms again? We already have a bed tax here in the Kenai Peninsula Borough. It is called the “Moock Tax” and was adopted years ago by the borough assembly. Sharon Moock, an assembly member at the time, successfully pushed for this tax and here is how it works. Ordinarily, sales tax is capped in the borough at 3 percent for the borough, plus whatever the city charges if the purchase is made in a city or town that collects sales taxes. So, when you purchase something over $500.00 (the maximum amount capped), your borough sales tax will not exceed $15.00. Buy a $30,000 vehicle in Soldotna and you will pay $15 to the borough and $15 to the city of Soldotna; 3 percent for each entity.
Enter tourism and the Moock Tax. It was decided to tax at the full rate, no cap, on any tourism sales. So, when a group of tourists purchase a package at $30,000, their tax ramifications are 6 percent of the full amount if they stay at a Soldotna lodging, or $1800.00. Not only are the beds in this purchase taxed at the full rate, per bed per night, but the boat seats these people fill are also taxed per seat per day. There is no cap. Remember that these tourists rent cars, fill restaurants and grocery stores, taverns, gift shops and more. Their sales tax dollars help fuel our economy. So, when someone brings up a bed tax I can only believe they are ignorant of the current tax structure or they are a meanspirited bully who despises tourists. Either way, this stinky can of worms ought to be buried once and for all. We already have a bed tax. Rod Berg Soldotna

Legislature fails to relieve prison crowding The Department of Corrections is extremely overcrowded. Every facility in the state has prisoners sleeping on mattresses on floors, cruel and inhumane treatment. This is very unsafe for all concerned and the results of decades of excessive sentencing in Alaska. It costs approximately $58,000.00 per year to house one inmate. Senate Bill 64 did nothing to help eliminate this situation. The bill could have resurrected AS 33.20.020, Good Time, [Repealed, § 21 ch 166 SLA 1978.] made it retroactive from repeal date 1978 and applied after earned to all offenders from 1978 until now eliminating some overcrowding. They could have also introduced an Earned Time Statute like used in over 40 other states. James Steven Stoneking Wildwood Correctional Center, Kenai

Nation & World Around the World Wind, trains among reminders for students, teachers who faced deadly twister’s fury MOORE, Okla. — Ten-year-old Kai Heuangpraseuth will return to a new Plaza Towers Elementary in the fall, built on the same spot where seven of the boy’s schoolmates died last year after a top-scale tornado reduced it to a pile of rubble. Christopher Legg will not be there, but his mother says perhaps her son’s death will hurt a little less if last May’s tragedy in Moore helps lead to safer schools. One year after the deadly tornado carved a 17-mile path through the heart of this Oklahoma City suburb and killed 24 people, deep scars remain — especially for families who lost loved ones and children traumatized after riding out the fearsome storm inside two elementary schools. Neither Plaza Towers nor nearby Briarwood Elementary had an underground shelter or tornado safe room, so when the tornado bore down, with winds speed exceeding 200 mph, the students huddled into hallways or crammed into bathrooms or closets. Most of the child victims died after a massive wall collapsed and suffocated them. Kai, who was plucked from the school’s rubble by a police officer in a moment captured by an Associated Press photographer, is excited about the new school, but still troubled by bad weather and certain loud sounds.
Judge strikes down Oregon’s gay marriage ban; 13th consecutive win for advocates PORTLAND, Ore. — A federal judge threw out Oregon’s same-sex marriage ban Monday, marking the 13th legal victory for gay marriage advocates since the U.S. Supreme Court last year overturned part of a federal ban. State officials earlier refused to defend Oregon’s voter-approved ban, and said they’d be prepared to carry out same-sex marriages almost immediately if the judge struck it down. The National Organization for Marriage sought to argue in favor of the ban. But both U.S. District Judge Michael McShane in Eugene and a federal appeals court rejected its attempts to intervene. Jubilant couples rushed to tie the knot following Monday’s ruling, including some who stood in line at the Portland county building for hours to get a marriage license. “It’s the final step to be truly a family,” said Patty Reagan, who took the day off to wed partner Kelly. “Everyone else takes for granted that they have this right.”
What consumers can expect from AT&T’s $48.5 billion acquisition of DirecTV
LOS ANGELES — Ready to bundle your mobile phone and TV bills together? That is one of the changes customers can expect if AT&T Inc.’s proposed $48.5 billion acquisition of DirecTV is approved by regulators. Here’s a quick look at the consumer impact of the deal, based on information provided by the companies: Q. How will my bill change? A. For the time being, not at all. The deal is subject to government approval in both the U.S. and Latin America. Until the transaction is approved, the companies will operate separately. AT&T and DirecTV expect to close the deal within 12 months. After that, however, the companies say a single bill for mobile phone, Internet service and TV can be offered in certain areas.
Putin orders troops to return By VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV Associated Press
MOSCOW — In what could be an attempt to ease tensions with the West and avoid more sanctions, President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops deployed near Ukraine to return to their home bases Monday. Putin also praised the launch of a dialogue between Ukraine’s government and its opponents even as fighting continued in parts of the country ahead of Sunday’s presidential election. The seemingly conciliatory approach suggested that Putin may believe he has achieved his key goal of maintaining Russian influence over eastern Ukraine without having to send in troops. Russia still wants guarantees that Ukraine will not join NATO and will conduct constitutional reforms to give broader powers to its regions, something that would allow Moscow to maintain its clout in the Russian-speaking east that forms the industrial heartland. The continued unrest in the east is serving Putin by making it difficult for the government in Kiev to consolidate its control in the region. Putin specifically ordered Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to pull back the forces involved in the “planned spring drills” in the Rostov, Belgorod and Bryansk regions to their home bases, the Kremlin said. The order appears to go further than a similar statement by the Russian leader two weeks ago that troops were being pulled back from the border to shooting ranges. The three regions border Ukraine, and the withdrawal of troops deployed there would signal a genuine attempt by Moscow to de-escalate the worst crisis in its relations with the West since the Cold War. It also would be easily verifiable by Western intelligence.

RIO DE JANEIRO — Sailing’s governing body may conduct independent water-quality tests in Rio de Janeiro’s polluted Guanabara Bay, the sailing venue for the 2016 Olympics and the site of Rio’s first test event in 2½ months. Any hope Brazil would be able to clean up the sewagefilled bay soon was quashed in a document obtained by The Associated Press over the weekend. In a May 7 letter to sports minister Aldo Rebelo, Rio’s state environment secretary Carlos Francisco Portinho acknowledged in a best-case scenario that pollution flowing into the bay could be cut to “over 50 percent” — well below the promised reduction of 80 percent. Alastair Fox, head of competitions for the international sailing federation, told the AP the body is likely to test on its own, hoping to allay athletes’ health concerns. The tests could also push Rio organizers to move more quickly on the problem.
LONDON — The board of AstraZeneca on Monday rejected the improved $119 billion takeover offer from U.S. drugmaker Pfizer, a decision that caused a sharp slide in the U.K. company’s share price as many investors think it effectively brings an end to the protracted and increasingly bitter takeover saga. The board said in a statement that it “reiterates its confidence in AstraZeneca’s ability to deliver on its prospects as an independent, science led business.” Pfizer, which is the world’s second-biggest drugmaker by revenue, has been courting No. 8 AstraZeneca since January, arguing their businesses are complementary. On Sunday, it raised its stock-and-cash offer by 15 percent to $118.8 billion, or 70.73 billion pounds. That would be the richest acquisition ever among drugmakers and the third-biggest in any industry, according to figures from research firm Dealogic. AstraZeneca didn’t take long to reject the new offer, its board arguing Pfizer is making “an opportunistic attempt to acquire a transformed AstraZeneca, without reflecting the value of its exciting pipeline” of experimental drugs. Because Pfizer said it won’t raise its offer again or launch a hostile takeover bid over the heads of AstraZeneca’s board, the prospect of a deal looks increasingly remote unless AstraZeneca shareholders urge a change of mind. Pfizer has said it hopes AstraZeneca’s shareholders will push for a deal. “This has been going on for quite some time and we have been in very deep engagement over the whole of the weekend,” AstraZeneca Chairman Leif Johansson told the BBC. “If Pfizer now says this is the
TRIPOLI, Libya — A revolt by a renegade general against Islamists who dominate Libya’s politics threatened to spiral into an outright battle for power that could fragment the North African nation as the country’s numerous armed militias on Monday started to line up behind the rival camps. Gen. Khalifa Hifter, who lived for years in exile in the United States during the rule of autocrat Moammar Gadhafi, touts himself as a nationalist who is waging a war against terrorism to save Libya from Islamic extremists. His loyalists and allies in the past days attacked Islamist militias in the eastern city of Benghazi and on Sunday stormed the Islamistled parliament in Tripoli. Hifter’s opponents accuse him of seeking to grab power, acting on behalf of former regime figures in exile by orchestrating an Egyptian-style military overthrow of Islamists that would wreck already struggling attempts at democracy. Since Gadhafi’s ouster and death in a 2011 civil war, Libya has been in chaos. The central government has almost no authority. The military and police, shattered during the civil war, have never recovered and remain in disarray. Filling the void are hundreds of militias around the country. Many of them are locally based, rooted in specific cities or neighborhoods. Others are based on ethnic allegiances. Others have embraced al-Qaida-inspired extremism. The country has held several elections, including ones that created a new parliament. But administrations have been paralyzed by the competition between Islamist parties and their rivals, each of which are backed by militias. Islamist lawmakers who dominate parliament removed the Westernbacked prime minister earlier this year and named an Islamist-leaning figure Ahmed Maiteg to replace him in a vote their opponents say was illegal. — The Associated Press
‘They think that the Ukrainian government won’t be able to consolidate despite the presidential election, and the economic, political and social crisis will escalate. They see no need to take the risky move of invasion, which would trigger serious sanctions.’ — Pavel Felgenhauer, military analyst The Kremlin statement didn’t say how many troops would be pulled out or specify how quick the withdrawal would be. NATO has estimated that Russia has 40,000 troops arrayed along the border with Ukraine. The U.S. and NATO said they saw no sign of a pullout after Putin’s earlier claim of a withdrawal. On Monday, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen reiterated that the military alliance has “not seen any evidence at all that the Russians have started withdrawal of troops from the Ukrainian border.” He said that NATO remains open to a political dialogue with Moscow and has proposed holding a meeting at the NATORussia Council next week. In Washington, spokesmen for the White House and the Pentagon said U.S. officials have not yet seen any sign of a Russian troop pullback. Press secretary Jay Carney said if Russia had pulled its troops back, the U.S. would know and would be able to confirm it publicly. Pavel Felgenhauer, an independent Moscow-based military analyst, said a pullout would be a sign that Putin has decided not to send troops to Ukraine, at least for now. “They think that the Ukrainian government won’t be able to consolidate despite the presidential election, and the economic, political and social crisis will escalate,” Felgenhauer said on Dozhd TV. “They see no need to take the risky move

final offer I have to believe what they say.” Shareholders in AstraZeneca PLC seemed to think a deal is now unlikely, with the company’s share price slumping 11.1 percent to 42.87 pounds. Johansson said his management team had told Pfizer Inc. over the weekend that it would need to see a 10 percent improvement over the 53.50 pounds-per-share offer that was on the table at that time. He said Pfizer’s latest offer represented only a “minor improvement” that fell short of the 10 percent needed. Though it has said its indicative offer is final, Pfizer has, under U.K. takeover rules, until 5 p.m. local time on May 26 to make a formal bid. If it doesn’t, it cannot make another offer for six months. Pfizer’s offer comes amid a surge of other deals as drugmakers look to either grow or eliminate noncore assets to focus on their strengths. Those deals include Switzerland’s Novartis AG agreeing to buy GlaxoSmithKline’s cancerdrug business for up to $16 billion, to sell most of its vaccines business to GSK for $7.1 billion, plus royalties, and to sell its animal health division to Eli Lilly and Co. of Indianapolis for about $5.4 billion. Canada’s Valeant Pharmaceuticals has also made an unsolicited offer of nearly $46 billion for Botox maker Allergan, which has turned it down, so far. Pfizer’s latest offer increased the ratio of cash AstraZeneca shareholders would receive, from 33 percent to 45 percent. The latest offer would give them the equivalent of 55 pounds for each AstraZeneca share, split between 1.747 shares of the new company and 2.476 pence in cash. It said the offer represents a 45 percent premium to AstraZeneca’s share price of 37.82 pounds on April 17, before rumors of the deal began circulating. C
of invasion, which would trigger serious sanctions.” The U.S. and the European Union have imposed travel bans and asset freezes on members of Putin’s inner circle over Russia’s annexation of Crimea. They have threatened to target entire sectors of the Russian economy with sanctions if Russia tries to derail Ukraine’s election. Ukraine is to vote on a successor to Kremlin-friendly President Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted in February following months of protests in Kiev. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry said it was checking the information about the troop withdrawal and urged Moscow also to cancel an air force exercise, set to take place in southwestern Russia from Wednesday to Sunday. It said the exercise — which would involve more than 70 combat aircraft, including Tu-22M long-range bombers — would fuel tensions during the vote. Pro-Russia rebels, who have seized government buildings in eastern Ukraine and fought government troops, have declared two sprawling provinces independent and vowed to block the election. Ukraine and the West have accused Russia of fomenting the mutiny. Russia denies this. Facing Western pressure, Putin supported a peace plan for settling the crisis, which was brokered by the Swiss chairmanship of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Putin, who earlier had
urged Ukraine to postpone the election, has now softened his stance. The OSCE road map aims to halt the violence and de-escalate tensions by offering an amnesty for those involved in the unrest and urging talks on decentralization and the status of the Russian language. The OSCE also has sent an observer mission for the election. The first round tables under the plan were held in Ukraine last week, but the government refused to invite representatives of the rebels in the east, whom it has dubbed “separatists” and “terrorists.” A third meeting is set for Wednesday. Even though the Russian Foreign Ministry has criticized the round tables for failing to include the government’s foes, Putin welcomed them as an attempt to establish dialogue. In a telephone conversation Monday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the two leaders expressed hope that the dialogue would continue, the Kremlin said. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov even sounded warmer regarding the round tables, calling them a “step in the right direction.” Putin and Lavrov urged Ukrainian authorities to end immediately the military operation in eastern Ukraine, where fighting continued. Pro-Russia insurgents fired on a Ukrainian army checkpoint near a TV tower outside the city of Slovyansk, killing one soldier and wounding three, Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said.

US charges Chinese officials in cyberspying case By ERIC TUCKER Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Accusing China of vast business spying, the United States charged five military officials on Monday with hacking into U.S. companies to steal vital trade secrets in a case intensifying already-rising tensions between the international economic giants. The Chinese targeted bigname American makers of nuclear and solar technology, stealing confidential business information, sensitive trade secrets and internal communications for competitive advantage, according to a grand jury indictment that the Justice Department said should be a national “wake-up call” about cyber intrusions. A company’s success in the international marketplace should not be based “on a sponsor government’s ability to spy and steal business secrets,” Attorney General Eric Holder declared at a news conference. The alleged targets were Alcoa World Alumina, Westinghouse Electric Co., Allegheny Technologies, U.S. Steel Corp., the United Steelworkers Union and SolarWorld. The indictment, which includes charges of trade-secret theft and economic espionage, was issued in Pittsburgh, where most of the
companies are based. China denied it all. In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said the charges were based on “fabricated facts” and would jeopardize China-U.S. “cooperation and mutual trust.” “China is steadfast in upholding cybersecurity,” said the statement. “The Chinese government, the Chinese military and their relevant personnel have never engaged or participated in cybertheft of trade secrets. The U.S. accusation against Chinese personnel is purely ungrounded and absurd.” The charges underscore a longtime Obama administration goal to prosecute state-sponsored cyberthreats, which U.S. officials say they have grappled with for years. One government report said more than 40 Pentagon weapons programs and nearly 30 other defense technologies have been compromised by cyber intrusions from China. The cybersecurity firm Mandiant issued a report last year alleging links between a secret Chinese military unit and years of cyberattacks against U.S. companies. Monday’s prosecution was announced on the heels of a separate worldwide operation over the weekend that resulted in the arrests of 97 people in 16 countries who are suspected of developing, distributing or us-
‘For the first time, we are exposing the faces and names behind the keyboards in Shanghai used to steal from American businesses.’ — John Carlin, head of Justice Department’s National Security Division ing malicious software called BlackShades. The new indictment attempts to distinguish spying for national security purposes — which the U.S. admits doing — from economic espionage intended to gain commercial advantage for private companies or industries, which the U.S. denies it does. Classified documents disclosed by former National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden have described aggressive U.S. efforts to eavesdrop on foreign communications that would be illegal in those countries. Unlike in some countries, there are no nationalized U.S. industries. American officials have flatly denied that the government spies on foreign companies and then hands over commercially valuable information to U.S. companies. In China, though, many companies are state owned, particularly those that supply the military.
“These five people were just doing their jobs. It’s just that we object to what their jobs are,” said Mark Rasch, a former U.S. cybercrimes prosecutor. “We have tens of thousands of dedicated, hard-working Americans who are just doing their jobs, too.” The indictment says that hackers, officers with the China’s People’s Liberation Army, stole proprietary information from the companies and the labor union, including design specification for Westinghouse pipes and pricing and strategy information from SolarWorld. Working from a building in Shanghai, prosecutors say, the hackers in some cases gained access to computer networks by sending emails to company employees that looked authentic but that actually contained a link to malicious code. The defendants are all believed to be in China and it was unclear whether any might ever
be turned over to the U.S. for prosecution. But the Justice Department, publicizing the charges, identified all five by name and issued “wanted” posters. “For the first time, we are exposing the faces and names behind the keyboards in Shanghai used to steal from American businesses,” said John Carlin, the head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division. U.S. officials have previously asserted that China’s army and other China-based hackers have launched computer attacks on American industrial and military targets, often to steal secrets or intellectual property. The Chinese say that actually they are the ones who face a major threat from hackers, and the country’s military is believed to be among the biggest targets of the NSA and U.S. Cyber Command. The new indictment will put a greater strain on the U.S.-China relationship and could provoke retaliatory acts in China or elsewhere. “What we can expect to happen is for the Chinese government to indict individuals in the United States who they will accuse of hacking into computers there,” said Rausch, the cybersecurity expert. “Everybody now is going to jump into the act, using their own criminal laws to go after what other
countries are doing.” In recent months, Washington has been increasingly critical of what it describes as provocative Chinese actions in pursuit of territorial claims in disputed seas in East Asia. Beijing complains that the Obama administration’s attempt to redirect its foreign policy toward Asia after a decade of war in the Middle East is emboldening China’s neighbors and causing tension. “If we were trying to make things smoother in this region, this isn’t going to help,” said Richard Bejtlich, chief security strategist at FireEye, a network security company. Despite the ominous-sounding allegations, at least one of the firms minimized the hacking. Monica Orbe, Alcoa’s director of corporate affairs, said the company believed no sensitive data had been compromised. Last September, President Barack Obama discussed cybersecurity issues on the sidelines of a summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, with Chinese President Xi Jinping. “China not only does not support hacking but also opposes it,” Premier Li Keqiang said last year in a news conference when asked if China would stop hacking U.S. websites. “Let’s not point fingers at each other without evidence, but do more to safeguard cyber security.”
Justice Department charges Credit Suisse in tax evasion case By ERIC TUCKER and MARCY GORDON Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department on Monday charged Credit Suisse AG with helping wealthy Americans avoid paying taxes through offshore accounts, and a person familiar with the matter said the European bank has agreed to pay about $2.6 billion in penalties. The charge was filed in a criminal information, which is a charging document that can only be filed with a defendant’s consent and which typically
signals a guilty plea. The penalties will be paid to the Justice Department and to regulators, according to a person spoke on condition of anonymity because the guilty plea had not yet been announced. A Justice Department news conference was scheduled for later Monday. The penalty resolves a yearslong criminal investigation into allegations that the bank, Switzerland’s second-largest, recruited U.S. clients to open Swiss accounts, helped them conceal the accounts from the Internal Revenue Service and enabled misconduct by bank
employees. The case is part of an Obama administration crackdown on foreign banks believed to be helping U.S. taxpayers hide assets. Attorney General Eric Holder, criticized last year after telling Congress that large banks had become hard to prosecute, appeared to foreshadow the guilty plea in a video message earlier this month in which he said no financial institution was “too big to jail.” The criminal case follows a Senate subcommittee investigation that found the bank provided accounts in Switzerland for more than 22,000
Floods threaten power plant and land mines in Balkans By JOVANA GEC and DUSAN STOJANOVIC Associated Press
OBRENOVAC, Serbia — Serbia ordered the evacuation Monday of this town and 11 others along the raging Sava River, but Bratislava Pavlovic won’t budge, even as water rising six feet in an hour lapped outside her third-floor apartment. “I grew up in this town,” the 58-year-old postal worker said. “I was born and raised here.” The worst rainfall in more than a century has flooded large swathes of Bosnia and Serbia, threatening Serbia’s main power plant and unleashing landslides that have swept away homes and unearthed land mines left over from the region’s war, along with warning signs pinpointing their locations. At least 35 people have died and tens of thousands have been forced to flee their homes.
In Obrenovac, shop windows were shattered and children’s bicycles, bedding, chairs and car tires were scattered in the streets. Dogs abandoned by their owners roamed about in packs as security forces distributed drinking water and food to the few remaining residents. “It came like a big wave,” Pavlovic said of the churning floodwaters that inundated the town of 15,000 some 20 miles south of the capital, Belgrade, when the Sava overflowed its banks. “It happened in one hour, two meters of water. Nobody saw it coming,” said Pavlovic, whose two sons and their families were among those who fled. Another surge of floodwaters on Monday prompted the evacuation order for a dozen communities, including Obrenovac, where soldiers, police and volunteers worked around the clock to protect the coal-fired Nikola Tesla power plant, which sup-
plies electricity for half of Serbia and most of Belgrade. Emergency crews have so far defended the plant by building high walls of sandbags, but some of the barriers were destroyed when a powerful 9-foot-high surge of floodwater burst through them Monday. Hundreds of people were evacuated by helicopters and buses, joining some 7,800 residents already forced from their homes since Friday. Hundreds more were believed trapped in the higher floors of buildings, without power or phone lines. The death toll is expected to rise as floodwaters recede after the worst rainfall since records began to be kept 120 years ago. In Bosnia, Foreign Minister Zlatko Lagumdzija called the flood damage “immense” and even compared it to the carnage during the country’s 1992-95 war that killed at least 100,000 people and left millions homeless.
U.S. clients totaling $10 billion to $12 billion. The report said Credit Suisse sent Swiss bankers to recruit American clients at golf tournaments and other events, encouraged U.S. customers to travel to Switzerland and actively helped them hide their assets. In one instance, a Credit Suisse banker handed a customer bank statements hidden in a Sports Illustrated magazine during a breakfast meeting in the United States. Credit Suisse CEO Brady Dougan has said previously that senior executives at the bank were not aware that some Cred-
it Suisse bankers were helping U.S. customers evade taxes. More than a half dozen former bankers have been charged for their role in aiding the tax evasion. The case was filed in federal court in Alexandria, Va., where individual bankers have been charged. The administration’s action against Credit Suisse, a banking fixture on Wall Street, comes amid public outrage that boiled over from the financial crisis that plunged the economy into the deepest recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Calls for holding big Wall Street banks
accountable, and sending top executives to jail, have come from consumer advocates, lawmakers and others, putting the Justice Department on the defensive. The Justice Department’s highest-profile settlement over sales of risky mortgage securities in the run-up to the financial crisis — the $13 billion deal among the department, state regulators and JPMorgan Chase — was a civil case, and no bank executives were charged. Federal prosecutors in California have been conducting a related criminal investigation.

Woodruff said Shannon was intoxicated, had blood-shot watery eyes and swayed and stumbled when he walked. Shannon admitted he consumed approximately five shots of vodka. A portable breath test resulted in a .122 percent blood-alcohol level, according to the report.
come out of the dens and get more mobile, then we’ll start to see an increase in calls,” Selinger said. “It’s just real hard to predict. It’s variable from year-to-year.” Moose calving has begun and generally peaks this weekend, he said. He estimated about 3,0004,000 moose calves are born on the peninsula each year. He said sometimes Fish and Game will get reports about bears chasing moose and taking down calves near residences, but typically the department doesn’t get many reports like that. “Usually when we deal with bear and human conflicts in the urban settings, around the cities and towns, it has to do with the bears getting attractants,”
Selinger said. He said to keep bear, moose and caribou issues low, Kenai Peninsula residents should make sure to minimize attractants including: — Containing pet food and garbage in bear-resistant bins or enclosed areas; — Keeping animals like chickens and rabbits in a safe area; — Putting up electric wires for livestock or chicken coops; — Putting birdseed and feeders away; — Cleaning barbecue grills; — Keeping dogs under control. “Every year we have numerous issues with dogs chasing moose and moose calves and at times actually killing the calves
— both moose and caribou,” Selinger said. “That’s the biggest thing right now and give (the animals) plenty of space.” Selinger said Fish and Game appreciates bear reports to know where the bears are to track activity. The Soldotna-based department of Fish and Game can be reached at 907-262-9368. If a bear is causing an immediate threat, Selinger said people should call law enforcement. However, if a bear is walking through a neighborhood and not causing any issues, Selinger suggests calling other residents in the area before calling authorities.
gusts of 25 mph caused the fire to spread and spot over the Chutina River. The blaze was within about 5 miles of the 200-person village when it began. Harrel said the tankers have dropped retardant in front of the fire to encourage the fire not to spread. “The winds are strong and affect the direction of the fire,” Harrel said. “The winds are blowing out and the village is being threatened.” Students from the school in Tyonek were evacuated before school was released around 3 p.m., said Pam Howard, a school nurse who flew to the
Kenai Municipal Airport from Tyonek. She said the power went out and shortly after fire crews advised the school to evacuate. “This afternoon we got word there was a fire across the river by the airport,” she said. “It was close to the time I was going to fly back so I was concerned about the smoke; whether I would be able to leave. I was concerned about the high winds today.” Howard, who said school nurses are assigned only seven days a semester in Tyonek, said this was her fourth trip this year. She said the Tyonek School had
scheduled their graduation for Monday night but she expected it to be cancelled. She said teachers and able-bodied students were asked to help fight the fire. “The fire is getting close to the subdivision and residents were very concerned and hoping the planes would arrive with water,” she said. “Residents are concerned about some villagers who cannot walk (well).”
knew nothing of the attack. He had gotten ahead of her while jogging and went back looking for her before base security picked him up and took him to the hospital. Sledge estimated the bear to be between 7 and 8 feet tall based on the 7-inch size of the rear paw pads. He said the woman is lucky to be alive. The Alaska Department of
Fish and Game recommended the recreation areas near the attack site be closed for a week to give the bear time to clear out. Sledge reminded people to be aware of their surroundings, because spring in Alaska can be dangerous. It’s a time when wildlife such as bears and moose will aggressively defend their young. The joint Army and Air Force
base covers 75,000 acres within the municipal limits of Anchorage. Some of the base is not fenced, allowing bears and moose to travel freely between base land and forest land surrounding the Chugach Mountains. Based on past studies, officials estimated that up to 40 brown bears and up to 300 black bears migrate through the base seasonally, Sledge said.
The discharge of a firearm from a moving vehicle is a class A felony and has a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000. The discharge of a weapon in the direction of a building with reckless disregard of others is a class B felony with a maximum 10-year sentence and $100,000 fine. Shannon was also charged with possession of a firearm while intoxicated, a class A misdemeanor. Northcott told troopers Shannon fired out toward the woods and wasn’t sure if there were houses in that direction.
He said he picked up Shannon, who was upset from an argument he had with his wife, according to the report. Another witness, who Shannon worked for, told troopers that Shannon got into a verbal argument with his wife and when he left work, Shannon said to his boss, “he was going to kill himself and walked over the hill and fired a round off,” according to the report. Troopers located Shannon’s wife who was uninjured and confirmed the verbal argument with her husband. Shannon denied that he wanted to commit
suicide to troopers. Shannon is jailed at Wildwood Pretrial Facility. His next court date is May 29 at the Kenai Courthouse.
Around Alaska Fired Fairbanks school superintendent seeks arbitration FAIRBANKS — The former superintendent of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District will seek arbitration for the two years remaining in his contract after being fired. An attorney representing Pete Lewis has sent the school board a letter informing them of the request, the Fairbanks Daily NewsMiner reported Monday. The school board last week fired Lewis, citing incompetence and negligence in investigating and retaining employees, including a high school tutor who has been charged with sexual abuse of a child attending the school. The district continues to investigate and said other employees might face sanctions. Late last week, board members directed acting Superintendent Karen Gaborik to put three more employees on paid leave, including an administrator at the district’s main downtown Fairbanks office and other staff members who work there. Lewis had a week from the May 12 firing to appeal. His contract was renewed last spring and he has two years remaining on the contract. It wasn’t immediately known how the arbitration would proceed. Board president Heidi Haas told the News-Miner on Sunday that she hadn’t yet spoken to borough attorneys about the letter.

Faulty wiring sparks shop fire By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion
A preliminary investigation revealed the fire was caused from temporary electrical wiring that rubbed up against the electrical panel and sparked the fire, he said. “The most likely cause is a shorted wire, which ignited surrounding combustible material,” he said. Nelson said the owner of the building, who used the shop for auto mechanic work, installed the temporary wiring last week with the intention of making permanent fixes when he got more money. With high winds through Tuesday and a red flag warning in effect in the Kenai Peninsula, Nelson said he hopes it rains before Memorial Day weekend because fire conditions are dangerous. He urged residents to not leave any bonfires unattended. “Right now we are waiting at the ready,” he said. “If a fire gets out of control, it could be a recipe for disaster.”
An electrical problem triggered an early morning fire in a detached garage on Kalifornsky Beach Road Monday, said Central Emergency Services Health and Safety Officer Brad Nelson. CES crews arrived on scene with 10 firefighters from two engines at about 6 a.m. and extinguished the fire 30 minutes later. Nelson said the owner of the building reported the fire after he awoke in his home next to the engulfed structure. Nelson said no one was injured in the fire. The 600 square foot shop located at Mile 3.65 on K-Beach Road was a total loss with the damage estimated at about $40,000 to the building and a total of $100,000 from a vehicle, equipment and tools that were lost in the fire, he said.

Man accused of killing employer ANCHORAGE (AP) — A 23-year-old Anchorage man working at a Palmer-area raspberry farm was charged Monday with using a machete to kill the 81-year-old owner who hired him days earlier. Thomas M. Cottam Jr. was accused of first-degree murder in the death of Steven Garcia of Garcia’s Alaska Farm in Butte, outside Palmer. Garcia’s body was found in his kitchen with cuts and stab wounds. Cottam turned himself in early Sunday night at Cook Inlet Pre-Trial Facility and remained at the Anchorage jail Monday. Messages left at the jail seeking comment from Cottam or a name of an attorney weren’t immediately returned Monday night. No number was publicly listed for the defendant. Cottam had worked for Garcia for less than a week. He told investigators he was hitchhiking six days before the slaying, and Garcia stopped to give him a ride. The owner offered him work at his farm.

SkyHi tops Kenai in strong wind By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion
On a day in Kenai when the wind had everything fluttering and flapping, the Skyview softball team steadied itself in the fifth inning and came away with a 20-6 Northern Lights Conference victory. After the top of the second inning, Skyview had an 8-2 lead. But Kenai pitcher Alyson Quartly kept the Panthers off the board in the third and fourth innings, and Kenai had the gap down to 8-6 heading into the fifth inning. But the Panthers took firm command of the game by sending 16 batters to the plate in the fifth and scoring 12 runs. Skyview coach Steve Schoessler
had a little chat with his team before the big inning. “We were more aggressive on the basepaths,” Schoessler said after moving to 5-6 overall and 2-3 in the conference. “We started watching for signals during that rally.” The Panthers also were able to scratch out five hits in the frame after four hits in the first four innings. But what Schoessler liked the most was that Skyview cut way down on strikeouts from recent games, striking out just three times. That put the pressure on Kenai’s defense. In the second, third and fourth innings, the Kardinals were up to the task. But in the first and fifth innings, a mix of errors, wild pitches, passed balls, walks and hit batters led to big innings.
“We’ve got to get stronger up the middle on defense,” Kenai coach Mark King said after falling to 0-10 overall and 0-6 in the league. King said he sees great promise in sophomore catcher Ashley Young. She caught a runner stealing in the third inning with her strong arm. But King said Young needs more experience. Lynn Hesse was 3 for 4 with three runs for the Panthers, while Sam Reynolds was 2 for 3 with two runs. Mykaela Rybak and Aubrey Rodriguez scored three runs, while Cat Schoessler, Marina Rodriguez and Meghan Ussing had two runs. Ussing added two RBIs. But the toughest task fell to Reynolds, who had to pitch through the constant dust clouds tossed about by
the wind. Reynolds gave up nine hits and three earned runs while walking two and striking out six. Not bad for conditions where Schoessler said he saw several throws curve 10 to 15 feet in the titanic gusts, which completely blew down the temporary outfield fencing. “She’s that kind of person — she’s not very flappable,” Schoessler said of Reynolds. “She just keeps going. “She’s been on basketball and volleyball teams where there’s a lot of drama, and she’s just like, ‘What drama?’” The wind was cascading in from left field. That meant the Kardinals dugout would get a wave of dust blown into it at least once a minute. Skyview’s dugout was, for the most part, shielded from the wind.
“We couldn’t see a thing,” said King of the complete lack of homefield advantage. “That was the worst wind we’ve played in.” But he also said Kenai played its best ball of the season, especially defensively in the middle innings. On offense, King said the Kards hadn’t been hitting since the first week of the season, but that changed Monday. Christina Glenzel was 3 for 3 with two runs, a double and a triple, while Quartly was 2 for 3 with two RBIs, Cierra King was 2 for 3 with a run, Darian Saltenberger was 2 for 3 and Havan Shaginoff had two runs. King also gave credit to pitchers Quartly and Reynolds for sticking it out on the mound. “They have to be exhausted,” he said. “That was a lot of work.”
Spurs cruise past Thunder RAUL DOMINGUEZ Associated Press
SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs were planning to attack the lane whether Oklahoma City big man Serge Ibaka was playing or not. The fact that the Thunder’s athletic defender was absent only made things easier for them. Tim Duncan scored 27 points and San Antonio took advantage of Ibaka’s absence to dominate the paint, beating the Oklahoma City 122-105 on Monday night in the opener of the Western Conference finals. Tony Parker did not appear limited by a hamstring injury, scoring 14 points and having 12 assists in 36 minutes. “We always want to try to penetrate,” Parker said. “We always want our ball movement, that’s how we play — kick and pitch and stuff like that. You know, obviously it’s a little bit better with (Ibaka) not being in the paint, but we’re still going to try to penetrate and make stuff happen.” The Thunder got their usual offensive outputs from AllStars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who scored 28 AP Photo/Eric Gay and 25 points respectively. But San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan, left, shoots over Oklahoma Oklahoma City’s remaining City Thunder’s Kevin Durant during the first half of Game 1 starters, Nick Collison, Thabo of a Western Conference finals NBA basketball playoff series Sefolosha and Kendrick Perkins, combined to score five Monday in San Antonio.

points with 13 rebounds and one assist. But it was defensively were the Thunder struggled without Ibaka, who will miss the remainder of the postseason after suffering a calf injury in Oklahoma City’s series clincher against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs had 66 points in the paint and shot 58 percent from the field. It was the highest shooting percentage allowed by the Thunder in the postseason since relocating from Seattle. “We’re a no-excuse team,” Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said. “Serge is out. He’s not coming back. We have to play better. We have to play better. If we expect to beat one of the best teams in basketball, and a very good offensive team, we have to play and we’re not going to make an excuse.” The Spurs fed Duncan early with Ibaka out, and the veteran responded by shooting 6 for 7 in scoring 12 points in the opening quarter. Parker, who suffered a Grade 1 left hamstring strain in San Antonio’s series clincher against Portland, drove the paint and dished to Duncan early before looking for his own shot midway through the quarter. “That’s part of our game plan,” Duncan said. “He knew that they weren’t going to let
him shoot the ball like he did in the last series. They were going to try to take that away from him, so he knew he was going to have to be an assist man.” Parker scored all but two of his points in the first half as the Spurs beat the Thunder for the first time this season. Even though San Antonio improved to 7-1 at home in the playoffs, winning their past five games by an average of 20.6 points, Monday’s victory was not easy. The Spurs also still remember what happened in the 2012 conference finals, when the Thunder won four straight to rally from an 0-2 deficit. “We knew that we have to play our best game to compete against them, and I think it’s great to have an appropriate fear,” Parker said. “They played great against us in 2012, and we know that we have to be perfect. They’re younger than us and more athletic, and so we have to be more perfect.” San Antonio played nearly perfectly offensively and still rallied to take a 76-75 lead on Westbrook’s 17-foot jumper with 5 minutes left in the third quarter. “We don’t believe in moral victories,” Durant said. “Third quarter was obviously our best quarter, but we didn’t close it out well. It’s Game 1, we’ve
got to make adjustments and be better for the next game. We’re not taking no moral victories out of it.” Despite missing his first four shots, Westbrook continued to bull his way into the lane and it paid off as the game wore on. Westbrook had 12 points in the third quarter, continually driving past Parker and the Spurs before they could settle in defensively. With the exception of a pair of free throws by Derek Fisher, Westbrook and Durant scored all of Oklahoma City’s points in a 23-22 third quarter. The extended efforts exerted by the Thunder’s two All-Stars eventually took a toll, especially with the Spurs bench coming to life. Westbrook and Durant were limited to seven points in the final quarter. Durant and Westbrook were a combined 19 for 40. Durant was 1 for 4 in the fourth quarter. “That’s the key with Kevin,” Popovich said. “You’re obviously not going to stop him, but making him work hard is certainly the plan. It’s everybody’s plan, no matter who he plays against, they’re going to make him work hard. I thought Kawhi was good, didn’t foul, but I think the team did a nice job behind him, helping him.”
Rangers put Canadiens in 2-0 hole MONTREAL (AP) — Henrik Lundqvist has solved his struggles at Montreal’s Bell Centre. The goalie called King Henrik made 40 saves and the New York Rangers took control of the Eastern Conference final with a 3-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday. The Rangers lead the best-ofseven Eastern Conference final 2-0 heading back to New York for Game 3 on Thursday and Game 4 on Sunday. The Canadiens, missing star goalie Carey Price because of an injury, came out strong in a bid get past a 7-2 thumping in the series opener only to run into the Lundqvist.
“I thought we played well, and the only reason we lost was Lundqvist,” Montreal coach Michel Therrien said. “He stole that game.” Lundqvist had struggled playing in Montreal before this series. He hadn’t started a game in Montreal in more than two years. But the goalie who was bested by Price at the Sochi Olympics as Canada beat Sweden in the final has allowed only three goals on 63 shots in the series. The Canadiens got the opening goal at 6:14 of the first from Max Pacioretty, but Ryan McDonagh tied it 17 seconds later on a shot that went in off defenseman Josh Gorges and a post.
“We knew they were going to come hard, but we put ourselves in a tough spot there by not getting pucks out,” Lundqvist said. “They were all over us. “But to tie it up quickly like that, I think that was important to kind of even out the momentum a little bit.” Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis also scored on Dustin Tokarski, the surprise starter for Montreal ahead of regular backup Peter Budaj. Tokarski looked shaky at times, but had no chance on two of the three Rangers goals. The Canadiens had announced Monday morning that Price, the Olympic gold medalist who hurt
his right knee in the series opener when he was crashed into by Chris Kreider, would miss the rest of the series. They hope to have him back if they reach the Stanley Cup final, but their situation looks difficult heading to New York. “It was a lot of fun,” Tokarski said after his first NHL playoff start. “There was a lot of adrenaline. You grow up as a kid wanting to play in the playoffs, and I got the opportunity and just came up a bit short.” Therrien said he opted for Tokarski over Budaj because of the youngster’s record of winning championships at other levels. The 24-year-old from Hum-
boldt, Saskatchewan, has a Memorial Cup, a world junior championship and an AHL title on his resume. “He’s a winner,” Therrien said. “I thought he played well. We talked to Peter and he reacted as a pro. He’s a good teammate.” New York coach Alain Vigneault said Montreal’s goalie choice was no surprise. “Somehow, we had an inkling (Sunday) night that it was probably going to be that gentleman (Tokarski),” Vigneault said with a grin. “Hockey’s a small world.” But in the end, he agreed that Lundqvist was the difference in the game.
Indians topple Tigers, snap 4-game skid By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND — Michael Brantley homered with two outs in the 10th inning off Al Alburquerque, giving the Cleveland Indians a 5-4 win over the drowsy Detroit Tigers on Monday night. Brantley connected on a 3-2 pitch from Alburquerque (1-1), driving it into the Tigers’ bullpen to end Cleveland’s four-game losing streak. Scott Atchison (1-0) pitched a perfect 10th, retiring Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez for the first two outs. Detroit’s J.D. Martinez hit a pinchhit homer in the ninth to tie it 4-all, but the Tigers couldn’t muster more magic in extra innings. WHITE SOX 7, ROYALS 6 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alexei Ramirez homered and drove in four runs, Dayan Viciedo and Paul Konerko also went deep and Chicago climbed out of a five-run hole before holding on for a wild win over Kansas City.
Zach Putnam (2-0) worked two shutout innings in relief of Scott Carroll, and Ronald Belisario also threw two scoreless innings before Scott Downs and Jake Petricka bailed out Matt Lindstrom. Lindstrom, normally the White Sox closer, gave up a leadoff single to Nori Aoki in the ninth, then appeared to hurt his foot fielding a sacrifice bunt by Alcides Escobar that resulted in an error. Downs entered and struck out Eric Hosmer, then Petricka picked off pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson at second base before getting Billy Butler on a groundout for his first save.
ASTROS 5, ANGELS 2 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Dallas Keuchel came within one out of his second consecutive shutout and Houston beat Los Angeles for its first three-game winning streak of the season. Jason Castro and Matt Dominguez drove in runs during a three-run first inning for the Astros, who got 10 hits off Garrett Richards (4-1) in the opener of a 10-game road trip. Keuchel (5-2) followed up his first career shutout with another gem, yielding five hits C
and striking out eight. He didn’t allow a runner past second base until the ninth, when manager Bo Porter pulled him after two-out infield singles by Mike Trout and Albert Pujols. Howie Kendrick followed with a two-run triple off Josh Zeid, who got C.J. Cron on a grounder to end the Angels’ third loss in 11 games. Dexter Fowler and Chris Carter also drove in runs for the Astros (17-28), who still have the AL’s worst record despite six wins in their last eight games.
BRAVES 9, BREWERS 3 ATLANTA — Freddie Freeman and Justin Upton homered to help Mike Minor win his second consecutive start in Atlanta’s victory over Milwaukee. Pinch-hitter Ryan Doumit also went deep for the Braves in a matchup of first-place teams. Atlanta began the night with the fewest runs in the majors. But the Braves banged out 15 hits and improved to 18-5 when hitting a home run. Minor (2-2) gave up two runs and five
hits with five strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. Ryan Braun and Khris Davis homered for the Brewers, who have lost three straight. Braun also threw out a runner at the plate from right field. Wily Peralta (4-3) allowed nine hits and three runs — two earned — in five innings. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke put in first baseman Lyle Overbay to pitch late in the game. Overbay got the final out in Atlanta’s five-run eighth.
REDS 4, NATIONALS 3 WASHINGTON — Todd Frazier’s tworun homer in the 15th inning lifted Cincinnati over Washington. Brandon Phillips singled off Ross Detwiler (0-2) to open the inning and, with one out, Frazier homered to center. The drive ended a scoreless streak of 27 2-3 innings by the Nationals’ bullpen. Logan Ondrusek (1-2) worked two innings for the win, allowing an RBI single to Greg Dobbs in the bottom of the 15th before getting Danny Espinosa to fly out to deep right to end the 4-hour, 58-minute game.

Sports Briefs California Chrome can wear nasal strip NEW YORK — California Chrome can breathe easy — he’s allowed to wear a nasal strip when he goes for the Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes. Belmont Park stewards cleared the horse Monday to use the strip that opens his nasal passages, just as he did in winning the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. New York tracks have a rule prohibiting any equipment not specifically approved by stewards, and nasal strips were not on the list. A statement from the New York Racing Association and the state’s Gaming Commission said the track’s three stewards unanimously agreed to lift the ban. The strip worn by California Chrome during his six-race winning streak assists airflow through the nostrils — something that should come in handy during the Belmont’s grueling 1½ miles on June 7. “I think it opens up his air passage and gives him that little extra oomph that he needs, especially going a mile and a half,” trainer Art Sherman said. “Any time you can have a good air passage that means a lot for these thoroughbreds.”
Kurt Busch wrecks in Indy practice INDIANAPOLIS — Kurt Busch wrecked during Monday’s practice at Indianapolis, putting him in a backup car for the openwheel portion of his historic double this weekend. Busch spun coming out of the second turn on the 2.5-mile oval and slammed hard into the outside wall. It was the biggest crash of the month. Andretti Autosport said Monday night the car would not be repaired by the Indy 500 and Busch will drive teammate Marco Andretti’s backup car. Busch will still start 12th. Debris flew into the air, there was a small fire and one of the tires rolled dangerously down the track as the car rolled to a stop on the infield grass. But the hardest part for Busch was contemplating all the work that must be done now as he becomes the fourth driver to attempt completing the Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 on the same day. Both races will be held Sunday.
Ovechkin out for at least 1 game MINSK, Belarus — Alex Ovechkin will miss at least one game at the world championship after injuring his right leg in a collision during Russia’s game against Germany. The star forward needed hospital treatment Sunday after taking a hit to his right knee from Marcus Kink midway through the third period. He stayed on the ice for several minutes before he needed assistance to leave. The International Ice Hockey Federation said Ovechkin will miss Russia’s final group game against host Belarus on Tuesday but remains with the team. Russia’s ice hockey federation said it is not clear if he will be able to keep playing at the tournament but Ovechkin posted on Twitter “all’s OK” with a photo of him giving a thumbs up. “Sasha (Ovechkin) will definitely stay with the team,” Russia general manager Andrei Safronov said Monday. “Even if he couldn’t play he’d still be here. He’s not just a part of this team, he’s a leader.” A medical scan of the Russia captain’s knee ruled out torn ligaments, providing some good news. “He’s OK at the moment,” Safronov said. “There’s some pain, but he’s working with the doctors.” The Washington Capitals, Ovechkin’s NHL team, said they had reviewed available medical reports and were confident Ovechkin would be completely healthy by training camp. — The Associated Press C

Woods feeling better JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer
BETHESDA, Md. — Tiger Woods still doesn’t know when he’ll return. For a while, he didn’t know whether he would return at all. Woods said Monday his back injury became so debilitating this year it caused him to doubt his ability to play golf again. “Forget about playing golf at the highest level. I couldn’t get out of bed,” Woods said. “I was certainly doubtful at that point. What’s it going to feel like? Am I going to be pain free? Am I going to be able to actually do this again, where I can to get out of bed, and go out there and play with my kids and play golf? All those things were up in the air.” Woods said the doubt was erased after microdiscectomy surgery March 31. He said the procedure, which relieved pain from a pinched nerve, provided immediate relief, although he said there’s still “no timetable” for his return to golf — or even for taking a full swing. As of now, he remains limited to chipping and putting. “It’s not going to be up to me whether I play or not, it’s going to be up to my docs,” Woods said. “Obviously, I want to play now.” Speaking at Congressional Country Club in his role as host of next month’s Quicken Loans National, Woods even joked that he wished he could join reporters on the course for their media day rounds — “even though I don’t like to play with you guys.” But he offered no hint that he might be anything more than an onlooker for the Quicken Loans tournament on June 26-29 — or at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst two weeks earlier. He’s already missed the Masters for the first time. C

Guest marks his territory, but in the wrong bathroom DEAR ABBY: My husband has a male co-worker, “Bo,” who comes to our house occasionally. We have two bathrooms, one of which is in our bedroom. The other is the guest bathroom. When Bo needs to use the restroom, he goes into our bedroom and uses ours. He never asks; he just goes in, even after I have pointed out the guest bathroom. It creeps me out. I feel like he’s invading my personal space, and I think it’s rude. What can I do, since pointing out the guest bathroom hasn’t worked? Bo is intimidating. He thinks he can do whatever he wants. Please tell me what I can do. — CREEPED OUT IN GREENVILLE DEAR CREEPED OUT: I agree your husband’s co-worker’s behavior is creepy. If you have medications in your bathroom, you should check to be sure he isn’t helping himself to some of them when he visits. Because you can’t seem to convey the message to “Bo the Boor,” before his next visit, ask your husband to tell him that guests are supposed to use the guest bathroom. And if that doesn’t discourage him, install a lock on your bedroom door.
and her 6-year-old moved into an apartment with her 18-year-old boyfriend. We had a tough time accepting this, but I make do because I love Alex and want to be part of her life. My boyfriend of eight years, “Niles,” can’t accept my daughter’s new boyfriend. We were invited over for dinner and Niles refused to go. How do I handle this? Abigail Van Buren I feel all future events will be strained and I’ll be forced to choose between my daughter and Niles. Please advise. — SAD MOTHER IN NEW JERSEY DEAR SAD MOTHER: Tell Niles that if you must choose between him and your daughter, you will choose your daughter. Her romance may — or may not — last forever, but your relationship with her will. There is nothing to be gained by punishing her and alienating her young man. If Niles has a problem with that, do not let him make it your problem, too. Continue your relationship with your DEAR ABBY: My 21-year-old daughter, “Alex,” daughter and see Niles separately.

Hints from Heloise
By Leigh Rubin
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You could be in a position of making a change on the homefront. You’ll see a personal matter a lot differently because of a problem that arises. Family plays a significant role in what occurs. A co-worker could care about you more than you are aware. Tonight: Order in. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Make the most of some extra time and catch up on calls. A partner or loved one will go overboard for you. Remain upbeat with a new, flirty friend. Listen to this person’s news; you will discover that you have reason to celebrate. Tonight: At a favorite spot. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHHYou might want to change directions, especially when the issue is financial. Understand where a loved one is coming from. This person might be moody right now, but keep in mind that he or she usually is more upbeat than down. Tonight: Make it your treat. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Your gentle manner will open up doors and allow a lot more giveand-take. Your smile and relaxed style will draw others to you. Be willing to listen and brainstorm with a contemporary who needs you to play devil’s advocate. Tonight: Let the good times happen. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You’ll need to say less and remain more anchored than you have in the recent past. Your impulsive ways emerge, no matter how much you hold yourself back or try to restrain yourself. Reach out to someone you respect, and ask for this person’s advice. Tonight: Not to be found.
Litter jugs are the cat’s meow Dear Heloise: I have found many uses for the white plastic jugs that contain cat litter. I use them for storage and sorting. After emptying a jug, I do the following: 1. With a box knife or other sharppointed knife, I start a cut along the top. Usually there’s a small raised rim. It’s best to start the cut just above that. 2. With sturdy scissors, I cut all the way around. If I want the full depth, this is all the cutting needed. If I want a shallower container, it’s best to start with this cut, because then the container will be easier to handle for further cuts. 3. I wash out the container with soap and hot water. It’s now completely fit for storage and other uses. I use them in the freezer, refrigerator, workshop and for gardening supplies. — Dr. Karen B. in Pennsylvania Good riddance Dear Heloise: I found an easy way to get rid of bank statements and credit-card bills if you don’t have a paper shredder or are unable to sit and shred up all the paper. Fill a bucket with warm water, put in all the paper statements you want to throw away and leave it in the bucket for about an hour. Put your hands in the bucket and tear up the paper. When the paper has soaked for a while, there is nothing left for anyone to try to put together to steal your personal information. — A Reader in Tennessee Handy holder Dear Heloise: My husband had a great idea for keeping paperback cookbooks open while cooking. He clips a large, plastic bag clip on the outside of the page (or both pages, if needed). The book stays open without breaking the spine of the book. It also doesn’t damage the pages of the book. — Julie H. in Kansas

ing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You’ll be unusually verbal, and therefore capable of seeing the big picture. Curb a tendency to allow situations to get out of control, especially those that demand your self-discipline. A friend might have strong feelings about you. Tonight: Tap into your imagination. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Deal with others on a one-onone level. You might want to understand more before making any decisions. A boss or an older person could express him- or herself easily. This person could be full of praise for you. Tonight: Why not initiate a close encounter? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Others won’t hesitate to challenge you. Your sense of humor will emerge. You could feel as if you can’t approach a loved one. This person’s importance to you can’t be denied. Your creativity will emerge when facing a hassle. Tonight: Go along with someone else’s choice. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Dive into work, and get past a problem that keeps reappearing. You have enough energy to make a boss more than content with your participation. Verbalize more of what you want with an expectation that your desires will be fulfilled. Tonight: Get some exercise. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHYou might be overwhelmed by an offer from someone you look up to. Don’t worry about your finances today. A loved one will go out of his or her way to let you know how much he or she cares. News filters in from a distance that forces a lot of thought. Tonight: Go for offbeat.

DEAR ABBY: Today is my 50th birthday. I’m a person with a few close friends, but I’m not widely social. The members of my book club knew it was my birthday when we met a few days ago. I had mentioned it before our meeting. Nothing was said when we met. My best friend is going on vacation and hasn’t remembered. My husband asked me what plans I had made for us to do today. My sister, bless her, has been wonderful and feels responsible to try to make this day special for me. Is it really my job to plan a celebration and remind everyone I’m close to? I have talked enough about how important this particular birthday is to me. I’m hurt that no one feels I’m worth the effort. Am I making too big a deal out of this? — VEXED IN VERMONT DEAR VEXED: I think so. My dear mother used to say, “If you want something done right, do it yourself!” That’s good advice when those around you are too preoccupied to be as nurturing as you would like them to be.
Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars A baby born today has a Sun in Taurus if born before 10:59 p.m. (PDT). Afterward, the Sun will be in Gemini. The Moon is in Aquarius all day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, May 20, 2014: This year you will start enjoying all the excitement that surrounds you. At first, you might be exhausted by the unexpected changes. You will get used to this high frequency in your life, and it will energize you. If you are single, with so much going on, you inevitability will meet several potential suitors. Don’t commit too quickly. If you are attached, be willing to verbalize what you desire, and remain equally as sensitive to your sweetie. Look at what is behind a short fuse and consider the trigger, especially if it is a repeating issue. Schedule a special trip together that the two of you have been discussing for a long time. AQUARIUS can be provocative. 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 An offer might seem too good to be true, so check it out. You could find an associate to be difficult and possibly touchy as well. Right now, certain associates might feel as if they can’t say “no” to you, even if they want to. Be as direct as possible. Tonight: Hang with your pals. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Take charge of a situation, especially if someone involved is being somewhat hostile. Check out an invitation carefully before expressing your decision. Do not share a certain emotional choice yet. A conversation could be enlightening. Tonight: Be careful with your spend-
