DAVISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A 60-pound runaway tortoise is back home in Michigan after disappearing for several days and making it about a halfmile during that time. The pet named Franklin strayed Thursday from his home in Genesee County’s Davison Township and was found on Sunday. Owner Chris Breuhan says family members walked his 10-acre property and started putting up flyers to see whether anyone had spotted Franklin. It turns out that the man who found him saw one of the flyers, and Franklin was brought back home. Breuhan says he was concerned that Franklin might get run over by a vehicle in the rural area, which is roughly 50 miles northwest of Detroit. “Nothing will eat him,” Breuhan said, noting that: “He’s too big.”

ally. He said the district will report back to the board in July with how the charter schools could be charged and what potential rates could be. “I guess what I can tell you is, the rate is going to be lower than market value, but I don’t know what it’s going to be,” Jones said to the board. He said he would like to charge one rate for all the charters, but he’s not a “miracle worker.”

While the district has been sharing in-kind services with the charter schools, it has not officially allocated costs to them. During fiscal year 2014, inkind service costs totaled $7.3 million. The biggest service cost is maintenance at $7 million. Insurance totaled $1.9 million bringing total in-kind services to $9.1 million. Jones said one school should not be charged for maintenance.

Primary ballot set By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion

Now that the deadline to file for state office passed Monday, 11 Kenai Peninsula residents will be on the August primary ballot. Kenai Peninsula Borough Assemblyman Kelly Wolf is running for Lieutenant Governor, a position made vacant when Mead Treadwell announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate. Wolf, a Republican, currently represents the Kalifornsky Beach District on the borough assembly, and his term expires in 2015. Wolf said he has invested the last 18 years working with Youth Restoration corps, a nonprofit organization that gets kids involved in community projects throughout Alaska. “As Lt. Governor, I wish to use this experience to continue helping our youth, elderly, disabled and our veterans because as Alaskans we are big hearted and helpful of one another,” he said. Wolf is one of two Republicans running for Lt. Governor. Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan is the other candidate. A third,

Lesil McGuire, R-Anchorage, withdrew her candidacy. Two candidates will be challenging two current state representatives for their seats in Juneau. Nikiski resident Rocky Knudsen has filed as a Democrat in District 29 and will run against the Speaker of the House Mike Chenault, R-Nikiski, who was first elected in 2000. Kenai resident Shauna Thornton has filed as a Democratic candidate for State Representative for District 30 against Rep. Kurt Olson, R-Soldotna. Thornton, who is on the Kenai Peninsula College council, said she is a big proponent of higher education and it will be one of her main platforms. She said she is running to protect Alaskan values and will focus on promoting a hardworking, ethical and transparent legislature. Olson, who has held office since 2004, said he would like to finish the progress he’s made on the worker’s compensation and make long-term fixes to education funding.

Firsts for the Kenai River Festival By KELLY SULLIVAN Peninsula Clarion

It will be a year of firsts for the 2014 Kenai River Festival, June 6-8, between the trees at Centennial Park in Soldotna. Centennial Park will be the first location where the banks of the Kenai river viewable from every location within the festival grounds. “The river is what the festival is all about,” said Director for Kenai River Festival, Lisa Beranek. In keeping with the sustainable focus of the celebration, all vendors and artisans are required to carry compostable service-ware this year, Beranek said. Composting receptacles will be clearly marked with what can be disposed in them, Beranek said. Education is the focus this round, she said. “Were taking the environmental stuff up a notch,” Beranek said. “It is a chance to show that large festivals don’t

Crack open the cover of any of the three books written by Alice Sebold, the keynote speaker of this year’s Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference, and there’s no turning back. At least not without a backward glance and wondering what you missed. Without question, Sebold has mastered the power of getting readers’ attention from the get-go. During the conference, Sebold will deliver the keynote address following the conference’s opening dinner at Land’s End Resort’s Quarterdeck, 7 p.m. June 13, will do a question-and-answer session during the conference luncheon at Land’s End at noon June 15 and will give a talk on writing from 8:30-9:30 a.m. June 16. She will give a public reading of her work at the Mariner Theatre at 8 p.m. June 14. Since the age of 11, the California-based author knew being a writer was the direction her life was headed. “I grew up in a house with people who read books. Books were every where, in every room and had a huge effect on me,” she said. Being surrounded by the written word was one thing. Making sense of it was another for the youngster struggling with undiagnosed dyslexia. With the help of a teacher, Sebold taught herself to play with words like they were objects. “That way I conquered my reading disorder as well,” she said. “I don’t know if I’d taken to language and writing if I hadn’t had to struggle that way.” Poetry was Sebold’s starting point, providing a format for arranging those word-shapes concisely and for maximum impact. “The truth is, a good poem has the weight and significance of a good novel. So there it all was,” she said. Also there was the key to Sebold’s future as a writer. “I think certain people feel called to do something,” she See WRITER, page A-10

Study: Hatcheries can disrupt steelhead By JEFF BARNARD Associated Press

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A new study suggests that steelhead trout can have trouble using the Earth’s magnetic field to navigate if they were raised in a hatchery, where the field can be distorted by iron pipes. Scientists at the Oregon Hatchery Research Center in Alsea raised two sets of fish: one outside the hatchery with a natural magnetic field, and one inside the hatchery, where instruments showed the field was distorted. Fish raised outside the hatchery oriented themselves to changes in the magnetic field, but fish raised in the hatchery’s distorted magnetic field did not. The scientists found that when a field was created simulating the intensity and inclination of a spot in the ocean off California in the southern part of the steelhead’s range, most of the fish from the first group pointed northwest and out to sea. When the field was changed to simulate a location off Alaska, the northern part of their ocean range, most of the fish turned to point southeast, toward home. Fish raised in the distorted magnetic field did not

orient themselves in any particular direction. “I would not go out and tell hatchery managers to pull out all the iron pipes and replace them with PVC or aluminum,” said lead author Nathan Putman, a researcher at Oregon State University at the time of the study who is now at NOAA Fisheries Service in Miami working on fish migration questions. “We know it has an effect. What is not clear is whether the fish can recalibrate their magnetic sense after leaving the hatchery, or whether they are confused for the rest of their lives.” The study was published in Wednesday’s edition of the Royal Society journal Biology Letters. Peter B. Moyle, a professor of fish biology at the University of California at Davis, said in an email that the study was “a good demonstration of how fine-turned steelhead and salmon are to their environment. “The magnetic sense of fish is a relatively new discovery, especially in relation to its im-

portance for navigation,” he added. “This study nicely shows one more reason why we need to keep maintaining wild populations of salmon and steelhead and not just rely on hatcheries.” Steelhead are rainbow trout born in Western rivers that migrate to the ocean, where they feed and grow to adulthood, then return to their native rivers to spawn. Due to more than a century of overfishing and habitat loss, the great bulk of steelhead and salmon are raised in hatcheries, and many surviving wild populations are protected by the Endangered Species Act. Research in recent years indicates that salmon and steelhead navigate relying on their perceptions of the Earth’s magnetic field, until they get close enough to their native rivers for their sense of smell to take over. Scientists think the magnetic receptors are inside the nasal area of steelhead. As many as 60 percent of the fish raised in some hatcheries fail to return to their native streams, swimming up other rivers, Putman said. Rates vary

year to year, and by hatchery. Hatchery fish also have a lower rate of ocean survival than wild fish, particularly in years when food is not abundant. That may be because they have lost the ability to find feeding grounds that have sustained the species for thousands of years. The scientists wrote that a likely explanation is that as the fish grow up in a certain place, they calibrate an inherent magnetic map they later use to swim down a river to the ocean, then turn north to feeding grounds in the Pacific. If the magnetic field is distorted during this calibration, the fish are confused. Co-author David Noakes, a senior scientist at the hatchery research center, said more experiments are needed to determine if the magnetic confusion is temporary or long-lasting, which would be important to fish survival. Discussions are underway to do an experiment breeding two groups of fish, one in a natural magnetic field, and one in a distorted field, releasing them, and seeing which group has more fish spawn.

Like it or not, mentally ill people must be treated Mentally ill people must be treated, like it or not Our intent is not to demonize the mentally ill; we must not assume they are violent. But study after study and incident after incident has shown that, left untreated, people with certain forms of mental illness are more dangerous to themselves and to society than others. Elliot Rodger provides the most recent, heart-wrenching example. He was being treated for mental illness, according to what is known about the 22-year-old man who massacred six students in Isla Vista and wounded 13 others before killing himself Friday. Whatever care he was getting, it was insufficient. It’s an all too common story with a predictable end. Some civil libertarians contend, wrongly, that people have a right to be left alone — no matter how ill. That makes it too easy for government to abdicate its responsibility to treat people who often are so sick they don’t realize the danger they represent until it’s too late. Far too often, there are warning signs — just as there were with Rodger. The Los Angeles Times reported that Rodger’s mother repeatedly called authorities after seeing a dark video her son had posted on YouTube. Santa Barbara County sheriff’s deputies visited his apartment and concluded they could not hold him. Maybe the visit would have turned out differently if a mental health professional had come along. The Hollywood Reporter said in the hours before the massacre his parents were frantically searching for their son, fearing he would harm himself or others. There are more examples. In October 2010, Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz., suspended Jared Loughner after five run-ins with campus officers. College administrators urged him to get mental health care. Loughner instead withdrew from college and three months later shot six people to death and seriously wounded Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. In February 2001, UC Santa Barbara student David Attias used his car to kill four people. His father had urged his adult son to take his anti-psychotic medication. His son refused, as was his right. Attias was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and spent 10 years at Patton State Hospital in San Bernardino County. In January 2001, Scott Thorpe shot and killed three people in Nevada County, including college sophomore Laura Wilcox. Thorpe’s psychiatrist concluded Thorpe did not meet the criteria for being held for treatment, despite pleas from Thorpe’s brother, then a police sergeant. The Legislature responded by passing Laura’s Law, which allows counties to establish courts that can order outpatient treatment for severely mentally ill people. Only Nevada, Yolo and Orange counties have fully implemented the law. A multitude of studies have shown that people suffering from schizophrenia and, to a lesser extent, bipolar disorder are more likely to commit violent crimes. Mixed with alcohol, the propensity is far greater. The Treatment Advocacy Center cites a Canadian study that said there was “no doubt” about the relation “between psychosis and violence” and noted that those in the “immediate social circle” of the mentally ill person are “most at risk.” Rodger started by killing his roommates. Laura’s Law should be implemented and enforced across the state — including Stanislaus, Merced and San Joaquin counties. Its tenets must include “assisted outpatient” and court-ordered treatment. When implemented and monitored, treatment reduces hospitalization and homelessness, but also allows a much more effective response by law enforcement if a problem develops. In the weeks ahead, much will be revealed about Rodger’s warped sense of entitlement, misogyny and ability to legally buy guns. All or part of that might be relevant. But this state and nation must confront its unwillingness to more aggressively treat people who are severely mentally ill. We can start here by fully implementing Laura’s Law.

But when it comes to our intolerance of weight, we don’t give a second thought. Our body bigotry is so ingrained that we consider it completely acceptable to make fun of fat people and to consider those who are overweight to be lesser people. What’s really ridiculous is that the contempt is aimed at an awful lot of us. A brand-new study tallies the rate of obesity in the United States at nearly a third of the population, over 87 million Americans. Not only do all of us suffer terrible hits to our self-esteem (yes, I’ve struggled with weight my entire life, which is why I have such strong feelings about the issue), but there are the physical dangers of that excess poundage: diabetes, heart problems, cancer, the list goes on. Obesity itself is a disease, often brought on by an addiction not just to food but, more insidiously, to the toxic concoctions the processors prepare and constantly advertise. Their products are loaded with salt, sugar, fat and other ingredients that are designed to hook us, with little attention paid to the public health consequences. Any attempts to intervene are crushed by the conglomerates that make massive profits by pushing their narcotic morsels on us. They particularly target our children. Woe be to the political figure who tries to

intervene. Just ask Michelle Obama. One would think that the first lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign and its stated goal of helping our young people get fit would not be all that controversial. Of Bob Franken course, anything with the Obama name attached to it will be controversial; the Republicans and the wealthy selfish interests will see to that. But if we lived in a logical world, an ideal place to begin with good nutrition would be the school cafeteria. What would make more sense than replacing unhealthy fare with healthy? No deepfried stuff, no empty calories. Instead, offer up tasty, nutritious choices. But the manufacturers and purveyors of the bad stuff don’t like that. So they’ve enlisted their GOP buddies in Congress to take “Let’s Move” and stop it dead in its tracks. Educators -- some of them, anyway -have been recruited to complain that the kiddies just won’t eat their veggies and fruits. They want pizza with tomato sauce to be declared a vegetable. Their resistance is amplified in Washington by schoolnutrition associations who claim laudable purpose until you look closely and discover that a bulk of their financing comes from

industry. That’s all the House Republicans need. So now they’re trying to pass legislation that would allow local districts to get a waiver from requirements that they serve healthy meals. Pardon the pun, but that would gut the campaign. Wouldn’t a better idea be for them to work harder to come up with taste-pleasing and creative ways to offer selections that students like even though they’re good for them? To her credit, Ms. Obama is fighting back -- or, in this case, writing back. There she was on The New York Times op-ed page telling us that “Our kids deserve so much more than this.” She was referring to the usual game that our politicians play where the well-being of citizens is completely ignored. Obesity is right up there with cigarette smoking when it comes to habits that can kill us, habits that are incredibly difficult to break. Certainly, one has to admire Chris Christie’s willingness to struggle with his obesity, and cheer him on. Clearly, though, the better way would be to develop healthy eating routines in our children, which, along with encouraging exercise is what “Let’s Move” is about. The question is, Will it survive the Washington swamp? You know the answer: Fat chance. Bob Franken is a longtime broadcast journalist, including 20 years at CNN.

Each party certain other is wrong WASHINGTON — In gridlocked Washington, what’s increasingly striking is that both parties are nearly unanimous in their positions. Each seems certain it’s totally right and the other totally wrong. That would seem to defy common sense. After all, most people want a higher minimum wage or they don’t. They want to extend unemployment benefits and repeal the health law, or they don’t. So isn’t one party in danger of falling out of step? For instance, is Republicans’ nearsolid opposition to increasing the federal minimum wage risky, given that three-fourths of Americans say they support it? No, say lawmakers and congressional scholars. Elected Republicans and Democrats speak to constituencies separated by geography and partisan convictions. This self-segregation into conservative and liberal enclaves is shrinking the political middle that once made compromise more attainable and the parties more ideologically diverse. The results play out almost every week in Congress. Republicans repeatedly vote to repeal the health law. Democrats push to raise the minimum wage even when they know Senate Republicans will block it. The great majority of Republicans today are elected from solidly conservative districts and states. The great maC

jority of Democrats are elected from reliably liberal districts and states. If Democrats and Republicans seem to speak different languages, it’s because they speak the political languages of their electoral homes. Simply put, “they represent their constituents,” said Gary Jacobson, a political scientist at the University of California, San Diego. Democratic President Barack Obama twice won national majorities, Jacobson said, but Republicans control the House because their voters “are distributed more efficiently across districts.” Of course, congressional Democrats and Republicans have clashed over policy for decades. But in the not-so-distant past they had sizable numbers of moderates to challenge party leaders and pull the parties closer to each other. The current Congress is the most polarized since at least 1982, when National Journal began analyzing lawmakers’ votes, the publication says. The most liberal Republican senator is to the right of the most conservative Democratic senator. In the 435-member House, National Journal reported, only two Democrats were more conservative than a Republican. Only two Republicans were more liberal than a Democrat. By contrast 20 years ago, 34 senators and 252 House members had voting records that put

them between the most liberal Republican and the most conservative Democrat. Those days are essentially gone. Congress’ increasingly clearcut partisan divisions reflect a mobile society in which liberals tend to congregate in cities and on the coasts, and conservatives dominate vast swaths elsewhere. The widespread gerrymandering of House districts amplifies the political trend. People are becoming more consistently partisan in their voting. There are fewer ticket-splitters who, for example, will vote Democratic for president and Republican for Senate, or vice versa. Jacobson, who tracks the issue, says state-level straightticket voting for president and for senator is now the highest since the 1950s. The two major parties also are more clearly liberal and conservative, respectively. In 1980 exit polls, 72 percent of self-described liberals said they voted for a Democratic House candidate. By 2012, the proportion was 86 percent. Conversely, two-thirds of selfdescribed conservatives voted Republican in their 1980 House races. In 2012, 82 percent did so. In firmly liberal or conservative House districts, the elections that really matter are the party primaries, where strongly ideological voters play out-

sized roles. This encourages Republican lawmakers to veer hard right, and Democrats to veer hard left, to discourage challenges from their political flanks. Perhaps, then, it’s not surprising that Congress now struggles to do once-routine tasks, such as passing a budget and paying the nation’s bills by raising the debt ceiling. Congress has raised the minimum wage seven times since 1988, to $7.25 an hour. Now, a Democratic bid to raise it to $10.10 faces nearly unanimous Republican opposition. Democrats cite national polls showing widespread support and predict Republicans will pay in midterm elections. “This issue really resonates with the American people,” said Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa. Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney endorses a higher minimum wage. But most Republican lawmakers shrug it off, saying there’s little enthusiasm among their supporters. Polls show that national support for a higher minimum wage is broad but not intense. In an Associated Press-NORC Center poll that asked people to list the top 10 issues they’d like government to address, 52 percent mentioned the health care overhaul. Only 7 percent named the minimum wage or other wage issues. CHARLES BABINGTON, Associated Press

Obama boosting America’s military effort By JULIE PACE AP White House Correspondent

WARSAW, Poland — President Barack Obama pledged Tuesday to boost U.S. military deployments and exercises throughout Europe, an effort costing as much as $1 billion to demonstrate American solidarity with a continent rattled by Russia’s intervention in Ukraine. But even as Obama warned that Moscow could face further punishments, leaders of Britain, France and Germany were lining up to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin at week’s end. Those one-on-one meetings would appear to send a mixed message about the West’s approach to relations with Russia, given that the same leaders are also boycotting a summit Putin had been scheduled to host this week. Obama does not plan to hold a formal meeting with Putin while both attend events Friday marking the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion that hastened the end of World War II, though the two leaders are likely to have some interaction. The U.S. president suggested there was no contradiction between efforts to isolate Russia and engaging directly with Putin. “The fact of the matter is that Russia is a significant country with incredibly gifted people, resources, an enormous land mass, and they rightfully play an important role on the world stage and in the region,” Obama said during a news conference with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski. He added that it could be possible for Putin to “rebuild some of the trust

that’s been shattered during this past year” but said that would take time. Western leaders, including Obama, have spoken with Putin by phone multiple times since Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine and stationed tens of thousands of troops on its border with the former Soviet republic. But until this week, they’ve avoided face-to-face meetings with Putin to avoid giving the impression that the Russian leader can slide back into normal relationships with U.S. and European leaders that have accused him of stoking instability in Ukraine. Putin’s meetings this week will be closely watched by Poland and other Central and Eastern European nations. Many countries in the regions have been pressing for broader NATO assistance to serve as a buffer in case Russia tries to advance beyond Ukraine. Obama’s announcement Tuesday of a “European Reassurance Initiative,” costing up to $1 billion, was aimed at quelling some of that anxiety. It marks a significant departure from a two-decade trend toward a smaller U.S. military presence in Europe amid a shift by the Obama administration to a more visible and active naval and air power presence in the Asia-Pacific region. Just three years ago the Pentagon downgraded the top U.S. Army Europe commander from a fourstar to a three-star general. If the U.S. Congress approves the funding, the Pentagon would ramp up its air and ground force rotations in Europe, as well as boost military exercises and position more equipment on the continent.

The plan also calls for increasing the U.S. Navy participation in NATO deployments in the Black and Baltic Seas and helping non-NATO nations such as Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine bolster their own defenses. But key details of the effort were unclear, including how big the U.S. troop increase on the continent might be. Obama said the fund would be “a powerful demonstration of America’s unshakeable com-

mitment to our NATO allies.” Komorowski, appearing with the American president, announced that Poland intended to increase its own defense budget to 2 percent of its gross domestic product, and he urged other NATO nations to do the same. Obama arrived in Warsaw for the start of a three-country swing through Europe that takes him next to Belgium for a meeting of the Group of 7 ma-

jor industrial nations, then on to France for the D-Day commemorations. His itinerary in Poland was filled with stops aimed at highlighting the West’s ties to this former communist nation and its neighbors. Moments after Air Force One landed in Warsaw, Obama strode across the tarmac to view four F-16 fighter jets and the American and Polish airmen and soldiers who cooperate on NATO missions.

Obama and Komorowski also convened a security meeting and dinner with leaders from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania and Slovakia. The centerpiece of Obama’s visit to Warsaw comes Wednesday, when he’ll speak at a ceremony marking the 25th anniversary of Poland’s first free election and its emergence from communism.

Ukraine president faces tough realities By LAURA MILLS Associated Press

KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s presidentelect will likely have little trouble wooing Western leaders, including President Barack Obama, when he travels to Poland and France this week — many have already hailed the rise of the pragmatic, Western-leaning leader. For Petro Poroshenko, who takes office on Saturday, the real task will be grappling with a pro-Russia uprising sweeping Ukraine’s east, and a political system dominated by grudging political allies and holdovers from the previous corrupt administration. That will mean proving to Ukrainians that his government is not a throwback to the corruption and political infighting that have long plagued Ukraine. “For so long, corruption has been a cost-free, risk-free exercise in Ukraine,” said Steven Pifer, a former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine who is now an analyst at the Brookings Institution. “While countries can tear themselves

up by getting too bogged down in the past and in prosecutions, Poroshenko will have to deal with a lot of public suspicion, because so many of these players have been around for the last 10 years.” After the ouster of Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine’s previous pro-Russia president, following monthslong protests, he and his closest allies fled the country. But many remnants of the Yanukovych regime stayed behind. Yanukovych’s chief of staff remains in Kiev, along with some of his top security officials during the crisis — when more than 100 people were killed by gunfire in downtown Kiev. The Party of Regions, which backed Yanukovych, has more seats than any other party in parliament and every incentive to stall parliamentary elections until it can regroup from the revolution. Despite much talk of prosecutions against corrupt Yanukovych-era officials, no charges have been filed against any of those who stayed in Ukraine. Soon after his election, Poroshenko

announced that his first priority would be to clean up parliament, where many legislators are holdovers from the Yanukovych era. While elections aren’t due until 2017, Poroshenko, who needs a cooperative parliament to push through direly needed economic reforms demanded by the International Monetary Fund in return for loans, has said he hopes to push that date up to later this year. “Poroshenko has been told many times that he shouldn’t repeat (former President Viktor) Yushchenko’s mistakes,” said Taras Berezovets, a political analyst at the Berta Communications consulting company, referring to the Ukrainian politician who catapulted to the presidency in the Orange Revolution in 2004 and whose government soon became bogged down by infighting. “One of Yushchenko’s biggest mistakes when he became president was to not call parliamentary elections right away. By the time he did, the economic situation had worsened, people had stopped trusting the government, and he lost.”

Around the World Security tight on eve of Tiananmen anniversary BEIJING — Beijing put additional police on the streets and detained government critics Tuesday as part of a security crackdown on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the crushing of pro-democracy protests centered on the capital’s Tiananmen Square. Police manned checkpoints, and officers and paramilitary troops patrolled pedestrian overpasses and streets surrounding the square. The increased security comes on top of heightened restrictions on political activists, artists, lawyers and other government critics. Dozens have been taken into detention, forced out of Beijing or confined to their homes in other parts of the country. “June 4 has come again and the plainclothes officers are here to protect us. I can’t leave the house to travel or lecture,” Jiangsu province-based environmental activist Wu Lihong said in a text message. Artist and former activist Guo Jian was also taken away by authorities on Sunday night, shortly after a profile of him appeared in the Financial Times newspaper in commemoration of the crackdown’s anniversary. As he was being detained, Guo, an Australian citizen, told an Associated Press reporter he would be held until June 15. A writer and officer of the Independent Chinese PEN Center, who writes under the name Ye Du, was also taken from his home in the southern city of Guangzhou to join a forced “tour trip,” his wife, Wan Haitao, said by phone. Such compulsory trips are a common method of keeping government critics under 24-hour watch without the need to initiate legal proceedings.

President-elect to Egyptians: “Time to work” CAIRO — Egypt’s president-elect, the former army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, told Egyptians it is now “time to work” to rebuild the economy after he was officially declared the landslide winner of last week’s election, restoring a career military man to the country’s top office. Thousands celebrated in public squares around the country with cheers, fireworks and pro-military songs after the Election Commission officially announced el-Sissi’s victory with nearly 97 percent of the vote in an election that it said saw a turnout of just over 47 percent. El-Sissi brings Egypt into a new phase in its tumultuous drama since the 2011 pro-democracy uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak after 29 years in power. The following year, Islamist Mohammed Morsi became the country’s first democratically elected president, only to face massive protests by millions against him and his Muslim Brotherhood. El-Sissi, then the army chief, ousted Morsi last summer and led a heavy crackdown on the Brotherhood and other Islamists that killed hundreds and jailed thousands more. The now retired field marshal was elevated to heroic status among his supporters, who hailed his removal of Islamists and saw him as the hope for restoring stability after three years of turmoil.

10 generals guilty of arming Boko Haram KADUNA, Nigeria — Ten generals and five other senior military officers have been found guilty in courts-martial of providing arms and information to Boko Haram extremists, several Nigerian newspapers said Tuesday, though the military insisted there was no truth in the reports. They follow months of allegations from politicians and soldiers who told The Associated Press that some senior officers were helping the Islamic extremists and that some rank-and-file soldiers even fight alongside the insurgents and then return to army camps. They have said that information provided by army officers has helped insurgents in ambushing military convoys and in attacks on army barracks and outposts in their northeastern stronghold. Leadership newspaper quoted one officer saying that four other officers, in addition to the 15, were found guilty of “being disloyal and for working for the members of the sect.”

Syrians vote for president By DIAA HADID, and ALBERT AJI Associated Press

DAMASCUS, Syria — Against a backdrop of civil war, tens of thousands of Syrians voted in government-controlled cities and towns Tuesday to give President Bashar Assad a new seven-year mandate, with some even marking the ballots with their own blood. The carefully choreographed election was ignored and even mocked in opposition-held areas of Syria where fighting persisted, with some rebels derisively dropping their shoes in a phony ballot box in a show of disgust. Western leaders also have called it a sham. A victory for Assad is likely to bolster his base of support at home and provide further evidence that he has no intention of relinquishing power, making a protracted conflict the likely outcome in fighting that has already lasted three years. Fears that the rebels would rain down mortar shells on government-controlled territory did not materialize, but fighting persisted. In Damascus, the dull sounds of explosions reverberated in the distance as government forces and rebels battled in nearby rural towns and plumes of gray smoke marked the skyline. Several mortar rounds reportedly hit in the capital, including one that fell near the Opera House on a major plaza. At least three fighter jets roared low over the city, which residents said was unusual. Government warplanes and helicopters pounded the rebellious Damascus suburb of Daraya, the southern city of Daraa and the nearby town of Nawa, as well as opposition-held districts of the divided northern city of Aleppo. Voting took place only in government-controlled areas, excluding much of northern and eastern Syria. Tens of thousands of Syrians abroad voted last week, although many of the more than 2.7 million Syrian refugees across the region either abstained or were excluded by law. There were ostentatious shows of support for the 48-year-old Assad, who has ruled Syria since 2000, when

‘Dialogue can’t be a solution when somebody is waving a gun in your face. You speak to the people who have wisdom to understand, and you defend yourself at the same time.’ — Zeina Habal, voter in Damascus he took over after the death of his father, Hafez. There was a carnival-like atmosphere, with voters singing, banging drums and dancing with Syrian flags. Chants of “God, Syria and Bashar!” were heard. At a polling station in the upscale Dama Rose hotel in central Damascus, a blue cup filled with pins was set out for those who wanted to vote in blood. Some pricked their fingers repeatedly to draw enough blood to mark the circle under Assad’s name on the ballot — an act of allegiance and patriotism that has been used in previous elections under both Assads. Most voted in ink, though, and some made their choice for Assad in full sight of other voters and TV cameras instead of using a curtained booth for privacy. They said re-electing Assad would give him more legitimacy to find a solution to the devastating conflict that opposition activists say has killed more than 160,000 of their countrymen, about a third of them civilians. Most Syrians said they believed some sort of reconciliation had to take place alongside the military crackdown, which they saw as inevitable. “Dialogue can’t be a solution when somebody is waving a gun in your face,” said Zeina Habal after she voted in Damascus. “You speak to the people who have wisdom to understand, and you defend yourself at the same time.” The government has portrayed the election as the solution to the conflict, but there is no indication it will halt the violence or mend a bitterly divided nation. “Assad’s victory will not legitimize the regime, but will cement its resilience,” said Ayham Kamel, an analyst with the

Eurasia group in London. He said the election will also reinforce the military’s recent gains and further undermine the ability of radical or moderate rebels to replace the government. “The Western countries are claiming that they are practicing democracy, so we came here to vote to show and teach them how democracy could be,” said George Saadeh, a resident of the overwhelmingly Christian district of Bab Touma. Despite the civil war, Assad has retained support among a significant section of the population, including religious minorities who fear for their future. The Interior Ministry said there were 15.8 million eligible voters, both inside and outside Syria, and that 9,600 voting centers were set up around the country. In the early evening, state TV said the electoral committee extended voting by five hours to midnight (2100 GMT, 5 p.m. EDT) because of “high turnout at the ballot box.” Results were not expected for several days. Assad voted in the morning at a school in his posh Damascus neighborhood of al-Malki with his wife, Asma. Both were shown on Syrian TV signing their names in a registration book after inserting their ballots in a transparent box. Crowds around him burst into applause. It was Syria’s first multicandidate presidential election in more than 40 years. Assad faced two government-approved challengers, Maher Hajjar and Hassan al-Nouri, both of whom were little known in the country

before declaring their candidacy in April. Foreign Minister Walid alMoallem voted with a Syrian flag wrapped like a shawl in his first public appearance since undergoing heart surgery in March, saying: “The path toward a political solution to the crisis begins today.” A few polling stations operated in the capital’s destroyed Old City, which was recently evacuated by hundreds of rebels after a cease-fire agreement with government forces. One station was set up in the courtyard of the heavily damaged St. Mary’s Church of the Holy Belt. “With the leadership of Bashar, my country will return to safety,” said student Uday Jurusni, who voted in blood. “He is my leader and I love him.” In rebel-held territory, some residents openly derided the election. In the northern town of Jisr al-Shughour, a group of people including armed rebels expressed their hatred for Assad by dropping their shoes in a “ballot box” made of cardboard. “We will vote for him with our shoes,” one man said to the cries of “Allahu akbar,” or “God is great.” In opposition-controlled eastern Aleppo, residents voted to strip Assad “the killer” of his Syrian citizenship. Activists inside Syria referred to the voting as “blood elections” for the horrific toll the country has suffered. Ahmad Ramadan, a senior member of the Western-backed Syrian National Coalition, described the election as “an act of deception,” while the opposition’s Western and regional allies, including the U.S., Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, have called it a sham. U.S. State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said the election was a “disgrace” and “staged,” adding that Assad has denied people the right to vote.

Online pirates thrive on legitimate ad dollars By RYAN NAKASHIMA AP Business Writer

LOS ANGELES — Movie and music piracy thrives online in part because crafty website operators receive advertising dollars from major companies like Comcast, Ford and McDonald’s. That’s the conclusion of several recent reports that shed light on Internet piracy’s funding sources. Content thieves attract visitors with the promise of free downloads and streams of the latest hit movies, TV shows and songs. Then they profit by pulling in advertising from around the Internet, often concealing their illicit activities so advertising brands remain unaware. Pirate websites run ads that are sometimes covered up by other graphics. They automatically launch legitimate-looking websites as pop-up windows that advertisers don’t realize are associated with piracy. At the end of the day, the pirate website operators still receive a check for serving up a number of views and clicks. The illicit activity is estimated to generate millions of dollars annually. That’s only a small portion of the roughly $40 billion of online ad spending every year. Yet it is helping to feed the creation of millions of copyright-infringing websites that provide stolen content to a growing global audience. “(Companies) placed their ads on the assumption that they were going to be on high-

quality sites and they’re not,” said Mark Berns, vice president of MediaLink LLC, a consulting firm that produced a study looking into the practice called “Good Money Gone Bad.” The study, commissioned for the Digital Citizens Alliance, a Washington-based group that advocates for a safer Internet, sampled 596 of the worst-offending websites. Researchers discovered that the infringing websites were displaying ads from 89 premium brands like Walmart, McDonald’s, Google, Microsoft and Ford. “It’s certainly fair to say that millions of dollars in revenue from premium brand ads are supporting content theft sites,” Berns said. That’s similar to an estimate from DoubleVerify, an online fraud protection company. According to a DoubleVerify report released last May, rogue website operators cheat mainstream advertisers out of $6.8 million each month, mainly by “laundering” ad traffic in ways that are hard to detect. “There’s growing awareness of the unscrupulous tactics that sites will go to to collect their dollars,” said DoubleVerify chief operating officer Matt McLaughlin. Several advertisers and top technology firms that operate ad networks — like Google and Microsoft — say the fraud is difficult to stop. Ads for Google’s Chromecast streaming device and Microsoft’s Bing search engine were among those that appeared on pirate websites. Microsoft said in a statement

‘It’s certainly fair to say that millions of dollars in revenue from premium brand ads are supporting content theft sites.’ — Mark Berns, vice president, MediaLink LLC

that while it monitors where its ads end up, it sometimes relies on others bringing infractions to its attention “to take actions on non-compliant sites.” Google said it invests significant resources to keep its and its partners’ ads from appearing on pirate sites and requires users of its AdSense service to agree to its anti-piracy policies. “When we find violators of these policies, we’ll take the appropriate actions — including blacklisting URLs and, in some cases, ending our relationships with publishers — as quickly as possible,” a spokesman said in a statement. Several companies listed in the report as having advertised on pirate websites declined to comment, including Comcast, Ford, Toyota, McDonald’s, L.L. Bean, Cablevision, Time Warner Cable, and Target. Dish Network said in a statement that it applies “industryleading standards ... to continually take measures that prevent our advertising from appearing on pirate sites.” Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokesman Dan Toporek said the company blocked tvboxnow.com, a website the Alliance report found received its ads. Toporek said the Walmart logo may have

been used by a third party that wasn’t so careful. Yet it is easy to find legitimate advertisers on websites that peddle in copyright infringement. When The Associated Press typed in the Web address www. uploadhouse.com — a domain that Google said it removed 97 times from its search results because of copyright infringement notices — one of the first ads on the home page was for an HP Chromebook 11, “made with Google.” Content theft website operators are based all over the world in countries like Russia, Australia and Indonesia. Most shy away from attention. Several people who registered websites identified by Google’s Transparency Report as frequent targets of copyright notices didn’t respond to messages seeking comment. The AP received an anony-

mous response from the email address listed as belonging to the registrant of piracy website SevenTorrents.org. The respondent said that while some advertisers prevent their ads from going on the site, others don’t. “Famous advertising companies like RightMedia blocked this site, I just let other advertisers which do not use those services (place) ads,” the respondent wrote. “They are paying.” The person did not provide their name or location. According to a search on Whois.net, the site is registered to “Mike” in the Adygea republic of Russia. The respondent also directed The AP to look at the “About Us” section of the website. The section reads: “We make it easy for those users who are looking for pirated movies to find what they are looking for.” At the same time, the site disavows wrongdoing. “I do not encourage or support people who rip or upload these stuff.” The site displayed ads from companies including Citrix Systems Inc., the food delivery service Seamless, shipping company DHL and Mormon. org.

Advertising industry groups are fighting the problem, with limited success. The Interactive Advertising Bureau’s chief operating officer, Patrick Dolan, said in an e-mail interview that despite efforts at certifying ad networks that follow strict guidelines, it’s an insurmountable task to track the trillions of ads and millions of websites. “New sites are created every day, names change, URLs change,” he said. “It’s impossible to always stop the ads appearing in real time.” John Montgomery, chief operating officer of major adbuying agency GroupM Interaction, said that by blacklisting some 4,000 pirate websites, his digital ad agencies withheld some $8 million from pirate websites operators in 2012 and $13 million in 2013. But he says GroupM and other advertising agencies need to get better at choking off the flow of funds. “We’re only one agencies group, accounting for 10 percent of (digital advertising) buying,” he says. “If we had a more sophisticated list we could have withheld more.” Content owners believe more can be done.

Brown Bears take 9 players in NAHL draft 2 of Kenai River’s first 3 picks hold high school experience with SoHi rival Wasilla Warriors By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

North Star Conference fans will need no introduction to two of the top three picks by the Kenai River Brown Bears in the North American Hockey League Draft on Tuesday. In the second round, the Bears tabbed forwards Tanner Schachle and Colton Fletcher, who have both skated for the Wasilla Warriors. Both turned heads at the Bears tryout camp in Anchorage last weekend, leading to their selection. “Both have always been strong players,” Kenai River head coach Geoff Beauparlant said. “Both skate well, are strong on the puck and have an excellent finish around the net.” Schachle just finished his ju-

nior year for the Warriors. He was a first-team all-conference selection the past two years. “Tanner is more a guy that gets his nose dirty around the net,” Beauparlant said. “He plays a physical game with high-end skill.” Fletcher left Wasilla after his sophomore year after he was drafted by Omaha of the United States Hockey League. He didn’t make that squad, but spent last season playing for Omaha of the North American Prospects Hockey League. As a sophomore, he scored twice in the NSC title game in a 3-2 victory over Soldotna. “I think Colton brings puck protection and poise,” Beauparlant said. The NAHL assigns draft picks by subtracting protected veterans

and tendered players from 30. The Bears have 14 protected veterans and seven tendered players, which gave them nine picks. Because the 30 must be eventually narrowed down to a 23man roster, getting drafted by no means guarantees making the team. But Beauparlant says the talent procured in the draft will set up good competition at the Bears main camp from July 24 to 27 in Minnesota. “We’re very happy,” he said. “It’s always an exciting and long process. Josh Romano, our scouting director, and all the scouting staff did an excellent job identifying players throughout the season.” Beauparlant and Nate Kiel, the general manager, ran the draft from Soldotna, while Romano

joined in via the Internet. The Bears’ first-round selection, and 11th pick overall, was forward Wade Wylie, who played last season with the Valencia (California) Flyers of the Western States Hockey League. Wylie was at the Bears main camp last season and the team tracked him after that. “We really like his speed,” Beauparlant said. “On the big rink, he should really impress because of his sheer skating ability.” After selecting Wylie and two Alaska players, the Bears had to watch as Adam Kresl was snapped off the board by the Aberdeen (South Dakota) Wings. Kresl played four regular-season games for the Bears last year, not enough to become property of the team, but enough to impress with

Monday, the Bears had given a second-round pick to the Corpus Christi (Texas) IceRays for Maurin Bouvet, a forward out of France who played in 53 games last year and had 10 goals and 15 assists. “He is super skilled and skates well,” Beauparlant said of Bouvet. “He loves the puck on his stick. He’s a power-play guy. We’re hop-

ing he can fill a top-six role for us.” But the coach knew assuming Kresl would drop to the third round was risky. “We thought he could get to the third round, and we could draft him in the third round,” Beauparlant said. “Aberdeen had shown some interest. We know he will be a solid player in the league.” See DRAFT, page A-9

Cruz powers O’s to win over Texas ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nelson Cruz hit a towering three-run homer in his return to Texas and the Baltimore Orioles won their third straight game, 8-3 over the Rangers on Tuesday night. Cruz drove the first pitch from Shawn Tolleson deep into the left-field seats, capping a six-run Orioles outburst in the eighth. The slugger, who spent the previous eight seasons in Texas, is hitting .313 and leads the majors with 21 homers and 55 RBIs. Adam Jones matched a career high with four hits, including a homer off the right-field pole leading off the Baltimore fourth. Rookie catcher Caleb Johnson had a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth.

Russia’s Maria Sharapova returns the ball to Spain’s Garbine Muguruza during their quarterfinal match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, in Paris, France Tuesday.

Slow to start, fast to finish

Sharapova survives sluggish start against Muguruza to win HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

PARIS (AP) — This is what Maria Sharapova does. She digs herself a big hole in a match, then figures a way out, no matter what it takes. She hits shots left-handed. Takes her time between points. Pumps her fists and screams “Come on!” after her opponent’s mistakes. And wins. Did it in the fourth round at the French Open, turning things around by winning the last nine games. Did it Tuesday, too, reeling off nine of the last 10 games to put together a 1-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory over 35thranked Garbine Muguruza of

Spain that put 2012 champion Sharapova in the semifinals at Roland Garros for the fourth consecutive year. “When you just don’t feel like anything is going your way, you want to try to find a little door to get into,” Sharapova said. “Once you start feeling, you know, like you got your foot in the door, then it’s a little bit easier.” After beating one 20-yearold, Sharapova now faces another, 18th-seeded Eugenie Bouchard of Canada, who earned a semifinal spot for the second straight Grand Slam tournament. Like Sharapova, Bouchard was not fazed by falling behind

Kenai course could see best year ever Rain followed by sunshine! What a great combination of weather! The Kenai Golf Course is in great shape for this time of year. We are on all 18 greens. This is the earliest we have ever been on the 14th green and it is in very good condition. The fairways on holes 15 and 16, usually very wet this time of year, are almost dry and filling in nicely. In fact, all the fairways and tee boxes are in excellent shape. The fairway on hole 3 is flat and green. At the beginning of the year it looked like the surface of the moon with moguls the size of which would make Alyeska envious. It is amazing how fast it went down. If these weather conditions continue, this will be our best year ever. Work is continuing on the cart path on hole 3. When completed, it will reach all the way back to the tee box with gravel topped off with crushed rock. It is now dry enough to start working on the new Ladies tee box. All the ladies seem to like the new loca-

I would like to thank Chris Kimball for all his hard work on this cart path. This is a tremendous amount of work. Thank you Chris. I would also like to thank Doug Haralson for all his work on the new ladies tee box and for stepping up to the plate while Willy and Dusty were gone. Great job cutting the greens Doug. Hook-a-Kid on golf started this week. 24 kids are participating in this week long golf clinic. Instructors include Tammy Maturro, Derek Kaufman, Truckee LeMay, Doug Haralson, Craig Jung, Mary Armstrong, and Tommy Carver. These individuals are do-

ing an excellent and the kids are really learning a lot. We have some really good golfers in all age groups. I would like to thank Bob Sizemore and Atigun for organizing and helping to fund this clinic on the entire Kenai Peninsula. Without you and your support, this program would not be possible. The Kenai Golf Association is also a major sponsor of this event. Individuals donations by Kirk Hyman, Bob Farrell, Derek Kaufman, and Gordon and Debbie Griffin, are also major funding sources for this clinic. The Dick and Shirley Morgan Kick Off Tournament will be held June 7 and 8. We will celebrate the life of Shirley Morgan with stories and memories during this event. We hope to see Dick at this tournament. If you would like to sign up for the tournament, contact the clubhouse at 283-7500. The first Beginning Lady Golfers Clinic began on Monday.

The future Beginning Lady Golfer Clinics include: July 7 — 9, July 21 — 23, and August 11 — 13, all 6 to 8 p.m. We also offer a two day Intermediate Lady Golfer Clinic which is a playing clinic that focuses on course management from the red tees. The dates are Thursday and Friday, June 26 & 27 and Monday and Tuesday, July 14 & 15. Men’s Night Results for May 29: The team of Tim Bornowski, Brandon Wolk, and Matt Hopson finished first with the score of even par. The team of Kevin Stalker, Richard Harmon, and Bill Haese finished second with a score of +1. Closest to the pin on hole 5 was won by Brandon Wolk. There was no winner on 9 since no one reached the green in regulation so the prize money for that hole will carry over to next Thursday.

in the quarterfinals. Bouchard trailed 5-2 in the first set, and 4-1 in the third, but beat No. 14 Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 7-6 (4), 2-6, 7-5. “I’m just proud,” Bouchard said, “of the way I stayed in there.” Tuesday’s men’s quarterfinals offered far less intrigue. No. 2 Novak Djokovic kept up his bid to complete a career Grand Slam by muting Milos Raonic’s dangerous serve and defeating the eighth-seeded Canadian 7-5, 7-6 (5), 6-4. Djokovic’s next opponent is No. 18 Ernests Gulbis of Latvia, who followed his victory over Roger Federer with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win over No. 6 Tomas Berdych of

the Czech Republic. Djokovic, 27, and Gulbis, 25, go way back, having overlapped in their early teens at a German tennis academy. Their paths quickly diverged, with Djokovic focusing on tennis and thriving, to the tune of six major titles. Gulbis admits he enjoyed the nightlife too much for his game’s good. Only recently did Gulbis realize he needed to take his job more seriously. “It’s really important, for my happiness, just to be successful on the tennis court,” Gulbis said. “Forget about the money. Forget about fame. It’s just about my inner comfort. That’s it.”

Carcillo suspension cut from 10 games to 6 NEW YORK (AP) — NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman cut Daniel Carcillo’s suspension from 10 games to six, meaning the New York Rangers enforcer could play in the Stanley Cup finals should the club elect to return him to the lineup. The commissioner made the change Tuesday after holding a hearing with Carcillo on Friday. “I respect the league’s decision and how they came to a decision,” Carcillo said Tuesday at Staples Center in Los Angeles. “I’m just happy I could say my piece and be a part of it, say my side of the story. I think he took it into account, and Gary was great. The league was great.” Carcillo was suspended May 23 after he appeared to twice elbow linesman Scott Driscoll, who was trying to keep Carcillo away from a fight, during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Here is a brief look at the final six picks: Mike Winn, a 1996 defenseman taken in the third round — Beauparlant said the 6-foot-3, puck-moving defenseman will be at the main camp for the USHL’s Chicago Steel, but the Bears will be there if he doesn’t make it. Viktor Ponatovskis, a 1995 defenseman taken in the third round — Made the all-star game at the Bears’ main camp last season, but the Bears decided the Latvian needed another year of development. The team was happy with the progress he made with the Salt Lake City Moose of the Western States Hockey League. Matthew Wikman, a 1996 forward taken in the third round — A find of the northeast scout, who convinced him to go to the Ohio tryout camp. There, the Northfield Prep player had a hat trick in the all-star game. Lucas Blomquist, a 1994 defenseman taken in the fourth round — At the Denver camp, Blomquist chipped some teeth, got them capped, and played the next day. Beauparlant likes his toughness, and the fact he has previous junior experience. Cody Longie, a 1994 defenseman taken in the fifth round — Played last season with the Fargo (North Dakota) Force of the USHL. Beauparlant fully

expects him to make the Force, but wanted his rights in case he doesn’t. Beauparlant said that is the same reason the team tendered Alex Jackstadt, a former Bears forward and UAA commit who played with the Force last season. Jacob Gerson, a 1995 forward taken in the sixth round — Beauparlant said Gerson is another pre-draft camp find. He said he has a lot of the same qualities as current Bears forward Zack Zulkanycz. Bears notes: Goalie Kris Oldham, of Anchorage, has made the Omaha (Nebraska) Lancers of the USHL. “We’re excited and proud Kris has earned this opportunity,” Beauparlant said. “We’re excited to see his career continue to progress to playing Division I hockey and possibly pro hockey.” ... Oldham is the first Bears player this offseason to earn a USHL slot, but others have great opportunities, led by Sebastian Fuchs, whose tender by the Madison Capitals puts him in the front of the line for a spot. Nathan Colwell was drafted in the second round by the Dubuque (Iowa) Fighting Saints and will be at tryout camp this weekend, along with Zulkanycz. Defenseman Austin Chavez also has been hitting tryout camps. ... The Brown Bears Classic golf tournament will be July 20 at the Kenai Golf Course. ...

. . . Writer Continued from page A-1

said. “They find it and then their brain kind of explodes and nothing else can hold a candle to it. That’s what happened to me.” After beginning what would eventually become her second book, “The Lovely Bones,” Sebold felt directed by the story’s central figure, Susie, a 14-year-old who has been murdered, to first tackle her own story. “It felt like it was bearing too much weight,” said Sebold of her initial attempts to write Susie’s story. “Basically, as a rape victim myself, I had a story to tell that was not Susie’s story. For Susie to be free on her own as a character and not as an autobiographical representative, I needed to go away and write my own story.” The result was “Lucky,” published in 1999, with the “Lovely Bones” following three years later. Her third novel, “The Almost Moon,” was published in 2007. “For me, that was part of the process, to realize I had a story that I probably wouldn’t have told if I hadn’t been motivated to write it by Susie,” said Sebold. “My characters are very real for me and I felt

it was something Susie needed and wanted me to do.” Offering the subject matter of “Lucky” for public consumption was something Sebold did after having processed the trauma of her experience on her own, with the help of therapy and personal writing exercises not meant to see the light of day.The subjects of her books, whether memoir or fiction, are large, complicated, uncomfortable. While not softening their impact, Sebold pairs them with prose of strength and victory, compassion and forgiveness. “I think we have such a black and white idea of dark material,” said Sebold. “Dark material has a light quality to it, as in transcendent. That was what I really wanted.” In 2009, “The Lovely Bones” was produced as a film, directed by Peter Jackson, and starring Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon and Stanley Tucci. Sebold saw it once, at its premiere for the royal family in England. She has been awarded the Bram Stoker Award for First Novel in 2001 and The American Booksellers Association Book of the Year Award for Adult Fiction for “The Lovely Bones.” The success she’s achieved doesn’t mean writing comes easily. “I never love what I put on

paper,” she said, recalling once being told there are two kinds of writers, those that think what they put on paper is genius and those that think what they put on paper is horrible. “I’m the self-hating one. I don’t write thinking, ‘this is fabulous.’” To make the most of her creative energy, as well as those inner critics, Sebold chooses what time of day to write and when to edit. “I like working early in the morning because the judges haven’t woken up yet. I get my creative work done in the morning,” she said. “In the afternoon the judges are awake and have had coffee and then I go from there.” That said, when asked which of her books she is most proud, Sebold said, “It’s so hard for me to take the word ‘proud,’ but I think I’m proud of them all … I think I’m proud that I’ve published three books that I truly believe in.” When it comes to advice for other writers, she draws from her own journey. “Unless you feel a desperate need to write, go find something else to do,” said Sebold. “I really feel like it has to be something that you cannot not do.” McKibben Jackinsky can be reached at mckibben.jackinsky@homernews.com.

Forum teamed up with the City of Soldotna, Beranek said. As a result of an emphasis on safety, some of the park’s daily operations will be suspended, she said. There will be no camping available Friday and Saturday, and no pets will be allowed on the premises, Beranek said. The park’s boat launch will also be closed off. Kenai River Festival Entertainment coordinator Robb Justice pieced together a lineup of 27 statewide bands, in sync with the “roosty, Americana,” music enjoyed by members of the Kenai community. Tyson Davis, singer and lead guitar player for Blackwater Railroad, performing Friday evening, said the band is looking forward to busting out their traditional foot-stompers for some new faces.

The group, made up of a collection of lower 48 transplants, has built a strong following in Seward since they formed a year and a half ago, Davis said. But, it will be their first time performing in the central Kenai area, he said. The group will be playing songs off their album “Bottom of the Bay,” released two weeks ago, Davis said. Davis said the band plans to stay for the Denali Cooks, who are making the trip from Alaska’s Interior for the show. The Denali Cooks, who have been playing together for 24 years, will be playing a mix of their biggest hits, “Mushrooms and Bananas”, “It’s Good” and “Shine,” and plenty of new material, said band member Larry Zarella. Zarella said they are style is veering toward a new genre he likes to call “Feel-good.” Based in rhythm and blues, but not rock or folk, the Cooks like to play music that connects with their audience.

Rounding out the list will be one of Alaska’s most up and coming groups, the Super Saturated Sugar Strings, Justice said. With environmental and nature-themed lyrics the band is looking forward to tying in their musical style with the goal of the festival, to keep the Kenai River clean, said Carlyle Watt singer for the Super Saturated Sugar Strings. Watt said the audience can always expect a high-energy performance, driven by upbeat percussion, aimed at getting people moving. “It will be our first time playing at the Kenai River Festival, “ Watt said. “We are looking forward to meeting everyone on the peninsula.” A full list of bands and activities for the Kenai River Festival can be found at kenaiwatershed.org.

Get your soup on C

old vegetable and fruit soups are refreshing on warm days and make a terrific accompaniment or first course at lunch. Vichyssoise (pronounced vee-sheeswahz), a creamy soup containing potatoes and leeks, is the most well-known of cold soups, but over the decades – since vichyssoise made its appearance nearly 100 years ago – in 1915 – other cold soups, made with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, have also become popular as good ways to stay cool when warmer weather arrives. Cold soups are concentrated and rich and, if cream is added, a luxury that should be consumed in small portions. You will note that today’s recipe for Cucumber-Potato Soup, calls for using the entire cucumber. The whole cucum-

And, if you are counting calories, whenever heavy cream is called for in a recipe, you can either go for less of the real stuff (my preference), or try healthier alternatives such as evaporated milk made with skim Kitchen Ade milk, or low-fat buttermilk, Sue Ade sour cream or yogurt. Warmer weather has arrived and it will ber, you’re thinking? Yes, just get warmer from here, so the whole thing and don’t be get your soup on – and stay skeptical – it works – with the cool. cooked skin and seeds blending smoothly into a creamy Sue Ade is a syndicated food kind of cucumber vichyssoise. writer with broad experience and The blueberry and cantaloupe interest in the culinary arts.

On warm days, cool off with refreshing cold soup. Warm weather soups include, clockwise from upper left, Scallion Vichyssoise with Curry, Chilled Blueberry Soup laced with yogurt, Cantaloupe-Orange Soup and Cucumber-Potato Soup.

1½ cups finely diced raw potato ½ cup sliced scallions, including some of the green part just above the bulb end of the scallions 1 cup frozen peas 3 cups chicken stock, plus more if needed to thin soup Salt and pepper ¼ teaspoon curry powder 1 cup cream, optional Chopped chives for garnish C

Place the potatoes, scallions, peas and chicken stock in a saucepot. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir in curry. Cool. Place mixture in a blender and blend, in batches, until smooth. Chill mixture thoroughly. When ready to serve, mix in cream, if desired. Garnish with chopped fresh chives. Makes 6 servings.

Sweet, ripe cantaloupe is the key to making delicious Cantaloupe-Orange Soup. When choosing cantaloupes, give it the sniff test first – it should have a sweet smell. It should also feel for heavy for its size, with the stem end giving a bit when pressed with your thumb.

2 cups diced cantaloupe, plus more for garnishing soup 1 cup orange juice 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 8 / teaspoon almond extract, optional Toasted almonds, optional Pinch salt Heavy cream, optional Fresh mint for garnish Purée the cantaloupe with orange juice,

lemon juice, almond extract (if using) and salt until smooth. Press through a fine mesh sieve, then refrigerate until very cold, about 2 hours. Before serving, stir in a bit of cream, if desired, garnishing with a few pieces of chopped cantaloupe and mint leaves. Makes 4 servings. Kitchen Ade note: if using almond extract, garnish with toasted, sliced almonds, as desired. Vichyssoise is traditionally served cold, but, if you prefer, it may also be enjoyed hot.

3 cups fresh blueberries (1½ pints) 3 cups water ½ cup granulated sugar (if blueberries are very sweet, adjust the amount of sugar used) 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice ¼ teaspoon nutmeg 1 (3-inch) piece cinnamon stick Pinch salt 1 pint plain (or vanilla) low-fat yogurt Heavy cream, for garnish

combine blueberries, water, sugar, lemon juice, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes, then remove cinnamon stick. Cool. Pour blueberry mixture, in batches, into the container of blender. On medium speed, blend until smooth. Pour blended mixture into a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Before serving, stir in yogurt, mixing well. Top each serving of soup with a tablespoon, or two, of heavy cream, swirling into a decorative pattern. In large saucepan, over medium-high heat, Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Chilled blueberry soup is as beautiful, as it is refreshingly delicious.

2 cups chicken stock, plus more, if needed to thin soup ¼ cup diced sweet onion, like a Vidalia 2 cups unpeeled cucumber, diced 1 cup diced raw potato 2 sprigs parsley ¼ teaspoon dry mustard Salt and pepper 1 cup heavy cream, optional

Place first six ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Cool, then pour into the container of a blender, in batches, and blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasoning, as desired. Chill thoroughly in the refrigerator. When mixture is cold, stir in cream and garnish with minced parsley. Makes 6 servings.

Cucumber-Potato, a variation of vichyssoise, can be made with an entire cucumber, skin, seeds and all. C

In September 2014, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) will announce the FY 2015 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for its Greater Opportunity for Affordable Living (GOAL) Program. Under this NOFA, AHFC will make grants, zero-interest loans, and Low-Income Housing Tax Credits available for competitive allocation to successful pre-application respondents to acquire, rehabilitate, or construct rental housing. For eligibility to apply for GOAL Program funds, all applicants are required to submit Pre-Applications to AHFC through an online application system. Application for GOAL funding is a sequential three (3) step process. Applicants must (1) register for the online application system, (2) submit a Pre-Application using the online application system and (3) submit a GOAL Application using the online application system. This Notice contains requirements and deadlines for Steps (1) and (2). Applicants will NOT be eligible to apply for GOAL funding unless they first meet both deadlines for Steps (1) and (2). Step (1): To submit Preliminary Applications through the online system, AHFC must receive Registration Requests for the online system by 4:30 p.m. (Anchorage time) on June 19, 2014. Step (2): Completed Pre-Applications must be submitted through the online application system by 4:30 p.m. (Anchorage time) on July 3, 2014. The preliminary application will, in part, provide sufficient information for AHFC to determine if the project proposal meets the minimum criteria for invitation into the full FY 2015 GOAL competition. A full list of items that will be reviewed during the pre-application is available in the GOAL Program Rating and Award Criteria Plan. The full FY 2015 GOAL application, to be submitted in the Fall of 2014, will address other aspects of the proposed development in greater detail. These additional aspects are outlined in the GOAL Program Rating and Award Criteria Plan. Supporting information on all of these components will be submitted in the full GOAL application. The deadline to submit Registration Requests for the online application system is 4:30 p.m. (Anchorage time) on June 19, 2014. All entities wishing to submit a Pre-Application must submit Registration Requests for access to the online application system according to this deadline. To obtain a Registration Request form, preliminary application materials, or find out more about these development programs, please visit the AHFC website at: http://www.ahfc.us/pros/grants/ development-grants/goal/

B-8 Peninsula Clarion, Wednesday, June 4, 2014

Aging population will cause Alzheimer’s numbers to soar and more support for the families who are caring for loved ones who have it are so urgently needed. Please suggest to your friend that she contact the Alzheimer’s Association for help because it offers support groups for spouses. Readers, June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. If you are concerned about Alzheimer’s Abigail Van Buren disease — and we all should be — you can get involved by joining the global fight against this very nasty disease. To learn more, visit alz.org/abam. DEAR ABBY: I’m currently dating a man who is 10 years older than I am. I’m 24; he’s 34. We have known each other for two years and we live together. He has two beautiful daughters I adore. His older daughter, “Pearl” (age 12), called me “Mom” the other night, and then asked me if it was OK. I’m not their mother, and I would never try to take that role away from my boyfriend’s ex, but this puts me

in an awkward situation. As much as I love his girls, I don’t want to cause drama or have Pearl get in trouble with her mother. — SHE CALLED ME MOM DEAR CALLED ME MOM: Talk to Pearl. Tell her you were touched knowing she feels that way about you and deeply flattered when she called you “Mom,” but you feel if her mother knew about it that she would be hurt. (This is especially true if the girls live with their mother.) Then ask Pearl to come up with another affectionate name for you, or suggest one to her. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby — Keepers Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price.

Hints from Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars A baby born today has a Sun in Gemini and a Moon in Leo if born before 10:20 a.m. (PDT). Afterward, the Moon will be in Virgo. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, June 4, 2014: This year is significant to your security and well-being. Your home and your personal life become even higher priorities. You will ask yourself what is most important to you in life. If you are single, getting into a relationship becomes a higher priority. There is a strong possibility of meeting someone after July because of an expanding circle of friends. If you are attached, the two of you find each other more interesting, as you start to see new facets of each other’s personalities. VIRGO can be sensible, but sometimes his or her requests can be a burden. 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 Your usual style of handling an issue won’t be as successful as you might have hoped it would be. Others might be confused about your vision and your expectations. Break it down to a realistic, simple perspective for them to understand. Tonight: Work late if need be. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHYou could have difficulty getting going in the morning, but around noon you are likely to get a second wind and feel energized. You seem to be able to come up with ideas for solving problems. Others see you as a creative source of inspiration. Tonight: Go for something wild.

Rubes

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Schedule an important talk for the morning, because other events could distract you later. In fact, you are likely to close your door in the afternoon and do some heavy thinking. Don’t push yourself beyond what you are able to handle. Tonight: Take some muchneeded downtime. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Communication will flourish in the afternoon. You finally will have time for a conversation with a loved one that you have been putting off. Though you might not always see eye to eye, you both care about each other. Tonight: Make nice, and enjoy the results. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might want to reconsider a change of pace. You often can be found dashing from one meeting or happening to another. Stopping and becoming more detail-oriented will give you some time to consider an issue that is likely to affect your life. Tonight: Your treat. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You could be off-kilter for a while, but you’ll loosen up considerably by noon. You need to do what you feel is important, as you could be unusually successful at the present moment. A meeting could be more important than you realize. Tonight: Let the good times roll. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You might want to think through a decision that comes up in a meeting. You’ll need to settle down to do some solid reflecting and brainstorming. You could be confused as to which way to go. Take some time to process your thoughts. Tonight: Relax.

By Leigh Rubin

Ziggy

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Be willing to look at your obligations as well as your passion regarding a project. Only then can you make a solid choice about your direction and needs. You could be quite talkative as you try to decide what works best for you. Tonight: Where your friends are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might not be sure about taking a stand, but you’ll sense that it is important. Others don’t seem to be in agreement, but you have a different perspective to offer. A family member could be confused about your choices. Tonight: Go with the moment; it could be a late night. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHYou might want to look at your long-term desires, as you could want to revise your thinking. Once you get your goals in order, success will come more easily. Someone you might want to share with could appear from out of the blue. Tonight: Surf the Web. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHYou’ll prefer to relate on a oneon-one level. Take the opportunity to have that type of conversation with a special associate. You might want to get to know this person better, and vice versa. Use caution with your funds and commitments. Tonight: With someone special. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Consider what is happening with a loved one. On many levels, the two of you have a lot in common; however, this person lives in constant stress while you are able to look at the big picture. Make a point of sharing your perspective. Tonight: Have a long-overdue talk.

Frozen eggs are a shell game Dear Heloise: While staying at our son’s home, I decided to make a cake and bought some eggs. I put the eggs on a middle shelf in the refrigerator. When I went to use them, a day or two later, they were frozen solid. I peeled the eggs I needed, which was easy, since they were frozen, let them thaw and then used them. The cake was good. Can eggs be frozen for a period of time and still be good? — Kathleen K. in Connecticut Eggs can be frozen, but not in the shell. You were lucky this time, but here’s what to do in the future: Remove eggs from shells, beat the entire egg (yolks and whites) together, then freeze in freezer-safe containers. Use within four months. When you are ready to use the frozen eggs, thaw in the refrigerator (overnight) or run under cold water. Use these eggs immediately after thawing and only in foods that will be thoroughly cooked. — Heloise Multiple uses Dear Heloise: Some of your readers state that they use their pizza stones only for cooking pizza. I find multiple uses for mine, and thought your readers might be interested. Baking biscuits on it produces an amazing product, especially homemade biscuits. I also use it for freeform tarts, dinner rolls, round or shaped breads and cookies. Any type of dough that isn’t too loose or runny cooks nicely! — Tina B. in Louisiana You’re so right! Many readers also use theirs to cook pies because it browns the bottoms beautifully! — Heloise

DEAR ABBY: More and more of my friends are trying to work and take care of parents who have Alzheimer’s disease. One of my closest friends’ husbands was recently diagnosed with it. He is only 62. I thought Alzheimer’s was only memory loss, but it seems like so much more. His personality has changed. She tells me he gets angry with her when she tries to help him. What exactly is Alzheimer’s, and what can be done to stop it? — UNSURE IN OAK PARK, ILLINOIS DEAR UNSURE: I’m sorry to say — from personal experience — that Alzheimer’s disease, while often thought of as “minor memory loss,” is a disease that is ultimately fatal. Its cause is not yet understood. I lost my mother to it. Alzheimer’s kills nerve cells and tissue in the brain, causing it to shrink dramatically. It affects a person’s ability to communicate, to think and, eventually, to breathe. At least 44 million people worldwide are now living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. As our populations age, those numbers will swell to 76 million by 2030. Currently there is no way to prevent, stop or even to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Some drugs manage the symptoms, but only temporarily. This is why more funding for Alzheimer’s

As over 700 firefighters put themselves in harm’s way to stay off one of the largest wild fires on the Kenai Peninsula in recent history, community members turned out to remember those who had been killed in service to our nation. Three Memorial Day ceremonies were held this year in the twin cities of Kenai and Soldotna. First was a morning parade of flags at the Kenai Cemetery followed by a noon service at Lief Hanson Memorial Park and a 2:00pm ceremony in Soldotna at the Community Memorial Park. In Kenai the Trefren family, Brenda, Sarah, Daniel, David, Matthew and Natalia made a poppy wreath with a poppy to remember each member of their family who had died in military service. “We had ten names in our wreath including grandfathers and great grandfathers, they didn’t all die while serving, but teaching my kids to honor and respect their lives is part of what Memorial Day means to me,” said Brenda Trefren of Soldotna. At the Kenai and Soldotna

ceremony a moment of silence was asked for especially for Alaska State Troopers Gabriel Rich and Sgt. Patrick Johnson who were killed earlier this spring while on duty in Tanana. In Soldotna American Legion Post 20 Commander Jim Herrick looked out at those assembled and pointed out that it seemed like most of the folks gathered were the same ones he saw at all three services, “That makes us feel real good, because today is a day to remember the fallen.” State senator Peter Mic-

ciche in his remarks echoed the theme in his remarks, “Your job today, all of our jobs today is to remember,” he said. Soldotna Mayor Dr. Nels Anderson recalled the story of a mentor of his who never talked about the war when he was growing up, but had written down his experiences before passing away. In sharing those writings memories of the Great Generation who kindled a fresh. Also at the Soldotna ceremony Col. James Halliday brought a few brief remarks that honored and paid

tribute to who have given their lives for ours and those who will be called upon to do so in the future. This year’s Poppy girl 11-year-old Madelin brought a basket of wounded veteran’s handmade poppies for members of the community to participate in the traditional Memorial Day Placing of the Poppies ceremony. Herb Stettler read Flanders Field which explains the poppy tradition and Tim Wisnewski played Taps following a combined Rifle Salute. The bene-

diction was presented by Mary Hall who also prayed for rain and the colors were retired by a combined Color Guard.

Summer Art Show opens at KVCC features James Evenson.

The stone lithography of James Evenson in a solo show at KVCC.

KVCC Summer Art Show features Homesteader James Evenson The 2014 Summer Art Show at the Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center had its well-attended gala opening May 23rd. The solo artist exhibit features an array of original Stone Lithography by North Kenai homesteader James Evenson. The Chicago born artist drove to Alaska with his wife Nedra and son Thor in 1955 and homesteaded on Bishop Lake where their present home and studio is located. His works have been exhibited throughout Alaska, the Midwest, Spain, Canada and Russia and have been purchased and hung in distinguished museums from Sakhalin Island in Russia to the University of Spain plus hundreds of private collections around the world. Regarding his first hometown solo exhibition Evenson told the Dispatch in an interview, “I’m absolutely delighted! I’ve had a lot of shows here with other artists, but when they called me and said they would like me to show solo all summer long I

was excited. Never before have I done a show totally of stone lithographs and many people just don’t know what that is, but there will be a lot of tourists who will learn this summer. It’s truly a great medium and I’m very happy to be doing this,” he said. The stone lithography process according to Evenson was invented in the late eighteenth century by a German who was trying to compete with British fabric printing. The technique exploits the repulsion of grease and water. “It is actually the process that over the years has become our off-set printing still used today to print newspapers, but it all started with stone lithography. Etching was popular among most of the masters of the Middle Ages then most anyone like Goya, Picasso and Broham who worked in the late seventeen and eighteen hundreds all did stone lithography,” said Evenson. It’s said there are two kinds of artists,

commercial artists who create art to sell and those who do art as a profession for the love of it and what it says about the life of the artist, “The latter is what I try to be. Almost everything in this show was or is an important part of my life. I commercially fished here in the Inlet for over 20 years so naturally there is a lot of work around fishing and the canneries. I’m proud to be Christian and you’ll see of my personal favorites are of Christ on the cross, praying and ascending, but that’s just one aspect of my life and every picture hung here wasn’t painted to please someone else, it was done to please me and says something about me,” he said. Walk through the life of homesteader James Lewis Evenson and his solo stone lithography exhibition now through September 5th at the Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center. For more information call the center at Summer Art Show opens at KVCC with a large attendance. 283-1991.

Community expresses appreciation for firefighters

As hundreds of firefighters continue mop-up operations of what may be the largest wildfire to burn the Kenai Peninsula, a grateful community is expressing its appreciation in any way they can think of. Many places of business have given over their billboards to say it visibly as the responders go to and from their 16 hour shifts between the fire lines and command headquarters at Skyview High School. Typically following natural disasters criticisms of the way the incident was handled are the first things to come forward.

However, with the Funny River Horse Trail wild fire, without exception there has been nothing but praise and appreciation for the job and precision defense of private property that has occurred. In an interview Michelle Westin, information officer with the Type II Incident management team acknowledged much of the success has been due to training, prior Firewise mitigation and luck, “The Kenai Peninsula Borough did have a Spruce Bark Beetle wildfire mitigation program that did some good work for a number of

years. The money the Borough invested in the type III incident management team and having that team trained over the last two years on how to manage and support incidents that occur is very important in having laid the foundation to have an orderly evacuation and orderly incident management transition and support of our Type II team and providing clarity and good public messaging to the community. Additionally, the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge invested funds to create a field break to protect the Funny River community from

a fire on Refuge land. It’s an example of a collaborative effort between CIRI and the Division of Forestry that is one instance of a collaborative effort that helped prevent this fire from being worse than it was,” said Westin. Including incident management teams and the pilots that were flying over 700 responders were appropriated to the wildfire fighting effort according to Westin, “We were like a small city in Alaska that popped up for the incident. Not only did the Hot Shot crews and Type II crews come from

all over Alaska but we have had a bunch of crews from Colorado and Canada in addition to the local crews who did an amazing job,” she said. Westin expects the intensive effort will continue until the protection lines for the communities threatened are completed which will be followed by a large demobilization, “Our first priority is secure anything near a community and we won’t let any crews away until we are certain that is done,” added Westin. A community firefighter appreciation barbeque was held Sunday at

the Soldotna Sports Center for responders and anyone wishing to meet and personally express their thanks to the 700 or more firefighters who have been working the wildfire. For all the work that was done by everyone prior to, during and yet to be completed THANK YOU! It could have been so much worse.

SEA 1st Rodeo Round Up features Riding, Roping & Racing plus shelter for four legged evacu- Team roping gets off to a big start at SEA Round Up #1. ees.

Roping, Riding & Racing at Soldotna Rodeo Grounds The Soldotna Equestrian Association (SEA) was one of the first organizations to step up and offer an evacuation plan for Funny River livestock. While preparing for their first Rodeo Round Up of the season as soon as they heard of the threat to Funny River and Kasilof livestock owners they offered an evacuation plan to the Soldotna Rodeo grounds. According to Amanda Buchholz of the SEA, “We housed over 55 animals during the threat. We had alpacas, goats, pigs, cows, horses, rabbits, cats, sheep and birds. It was like a zoo! And being spring time we had lots of new babies. Gate panels were brought down, everyone jumped in to help build and assemble what needed to be built to house the animals. A livestock trailer and truck was provided by Brayden Holly. Calls came in as early as 1:00a.m. in the morning to send out rescue teams for help. Joe Dilley organized the operation

at the Soldotna rodeo grounds making sure all animals were separated, sorted and watered. Joe even stayed each night at the rodeo grounds so parents of fur babies knew they were safe. Currently at this time all animals have been returned safely to their homes. We also encouraged families with campers or tents to stay on the grounds with their animals. Restrooms were provided and there was no cost to park. We were glad the SEA could be of help in a time of need,” said Buchholz.

With 90 plus members the Soldotna Equestrian Assoc. Association was organized to focus and promote the common interests of safe riding instruction, competition and education on matters related to all segments of the horse industry. “Our association is made up of a 10 member board of directors that includes President Chris Sorrels, V.P. Jenny Stausbaugh, Secretary Amanda Buchholz, Treasurer Rhonda Harvey, plus Joe Dilley, Steve Barrow, Erica Bowers, Connie Taplin, George
