‘No big scary monsters’ in Kenai budget City finances in good shape, audit finds By BEN BOETTGER Peninsula Clarion

A report by accountant Michelle Drew, of financial consulting service BDO USA, gave Kenai a good evaluation for its handling of municipal finance. Drew, who conducted an audit of the city’s finances for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014, said that her company’s examination of its expenses and revenues discovered “no big scary monsters.” The report, presented to the city council on Wednesday, valued the city’s assets near $45.8 million, 93 percent of which were in cash or investments. Its liabilities were near $2.6 million, and its total equity — “the difference between what you have and what you owe,” Drew said — was $43 million. Analyzing the city’s sources of revenue, Drew said that the Airport Land Sales Permanent

Donlin mine has local implications By IAN FOLEY Peninsula Clarion

The future of Donlin Gold’s mining project was detailed in a presentation at the Alaska Support Industry Alliance luncheon held at the Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center on Friday. While located in western Alaska, the project has repercussions for the Kenai Peninsula, as a proposed pipeline would transport natural gas from the Cook Inlet to the site. The Donlin Gold mining project is located in Alaska’s Yukon Kuskokwim region, approximately 10 miles from the village of Crooked Creek. It is jointly owned by NOVAGOLD Resources and Barrick Gold Corporation. Donlin Gold estimates that the site has 33.9 million ounces of gold reserves.

“A project the size of ours is going to have benefits to the entire state, so I think it’s important for us to share (details of) the project,” said Kurt Parkan, the External Affairs Manager for Donlin Gold. Parkan said the mine will be one of the world’s largest — probably in the top 10 percent. He said the project will hopefully create up to 1,400 jobs each year during operations. The site will have a mine-life of an estimated 29 years. He said that the open-pit mine site will be like a small city and contain a campsite for 600 people. Despite already being nearly 20 years in development, the project needs to receive more than 100 permits before construction and mining can begin. See MINE, page A-5

Fund was “the big winner,” contributing “just under two million dollars to the bottom line.” This fund is made of invested money earned from the sale of airport land. As a permanent fund, the city is unable to use the fund’s principal, but can spend the earnings it produces through interest and investment returns. “At year end, it had a little over $24 million in it,” said city finance director Terry Eubank, of the Airport Land Sales Permanent Fund. “And with the stock market and things doing as well as they’ve been doing lately, it had significant investment earnings this year.” Drew said that in total, the city’s revenue, which it had originally budgeted at $14.5 million, came to $14.2 million. The three biggest revenue contributors were the general sales tax, fish tax, and ambulance See AUDIT, page A-2

7 on Soldotna charter ballot By KELLY SULLIVAN Peninsula Clarion

With seven home rule charter commission member candidates approved, Soldotna’s special city election will be held Feb. 3, 2015. City council members Pete Sprague and Keith Baxter, Kenai Peninsula Borough president Dale Bagley, Program Coordinator for the Office of Emergency Management Dan Nelson, manager of River City Books Peggy Mullen, Birch Ridge Golf Course owner Patrick Cowan and resident Jerry Farrington are the candidates voters will have the option of electing in little more than one month.

“This is a great group of people to be working on a home rule charter for the future of Soldotna,” said City Manager Mark Dixson. “It took them each considerable amount of time to get the 50 required signatures, and it will take a considerable amount of time for them to develop the charter.“ The commission filing period closed Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m., but the required number of applications had been approved by Friday morning, said Soldotna City Clerk Shellie Saner. There is now “ample opportunity” for the people of Soldotna to decide if they want a charter commission, said city See BALLOT, page A-2

Soldotna, Kenai Central alumni to drop the puck By BEN BOETTGER Peninsula Clarion

As they have done each winter for the past 19 years, alumni of Soldotna and Kenai Central high schools will lace up their skates and face each other in a hockey game at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. “It’s about helping the kids and making money for the program,” said the organizer of this year’s alumni game, Terry Eubank. The program that Eubank, a 1989 Kenai alumni, referred to is the Kenai Hockey Booster Club, of which Eubank is a member. Funds raised by the event’s $10 adult tickets, $5 child and senior tickets, and various raffles, games and C

concessions will be put toward the mission of this club, which purchases equipment, practice time, travel expenses and uniforms for the Kenai Central High School hockey team. Rick Koch, an organizer responsible for player recruitment, said that in addition to Kenai and Soldotna players the game will include alumni from Skyview and Nikiski, distributed between the two teams to fill open spaces in the roster. As of Friday evening, Koch said he

had recruited close to 20 players. “But it’s always a last-minute deal. These old hockey players are pretty tough to teach to be organized,” said Koch. Hockey will not be the only opportunity for Kenai and Soldotna to compete. In between periods of the alumni game, the two schools’ current hockey teams will face each other in a tug of war, with a $250 prize for the winner.

received full cooperation from all city staff and recommended no changes in accounting policy. After Drew’s report, council member Rob Molloy commended Eubank for the good results. In addition to hearing the audit report, the city council approved an upgrade to the municipal park and passed two resolutions and five ordinances, including two appropriations directed toward the airport for airfield marking, taxiway, and tie-down rehabilitation, an award for design of taxiways and tie-downs to engineering company Wince Corthell Bryson, an authorization for airport vending machines, the adoption of Alaska state plumbing codes, appropriation of funds in excess of the budgeted amount from the Personal Use Fisheries fund to other areas of the city budget, and an amendment to the city’s rules for vacating unused right-of-ways on land to be developed.

ing the Soldotna city residents to decide how they want to be governed and how the services provided by the city are financed,” Dixson said. “The council recently wanted to grant a variance but as a first class city was bound to follow state statutes. The city residents should decide how variances are awarded, not the state. City residents should manage their

own pocketbooks.” Residents who wish to vote in the special election must be registered in Soldotna by Jan. 4, 2015, according to state statute. To qualify voters must be registered at a residence address within Soldotna City limits for at least 30 days before the city election in which the person seeks to vote, according to state statute. Voter registration applica-

tions are available at Soldotna City Hall. Absentee voting for the special election begins Jan. 19, and goes through 5 p.m., Jan. 27. The polling place for the special election is Soldotna City Hall starting at 7 a.m. through 8 p.m.

terward.” To her left, Herrmann had a handful of framed and paper photographs of her daughter Jenna who died in a car wreck outside Soldotna. On the top of the pile was the small pamphlet that had been made for the funeral service. The three-year anniversary of Jenna’s death is on Jan. 9, 2015, Herrmann said. She said she still has a relationship with her daughter, and the Compassionate Friends support group is a place where she can discuss what that interaction now means to her. Herrmann can still remember the feel of holding Jenna against her breast, and that she always held one eye shut if someone was taking a photograph of her. For Garcia, the group is one place she can spend time processing the death of her daughter, who died 24 years ago after combating a brain tumor. “She woke up one day to go to the bathroom, and then she never woke up again,” Garcia said. “We were told she was brain dead. I still imagine what she would be like today.” As the women talked, each expressed thought was acknowledged or expanded on by one another. Occasionally, Boyd would wipe the wet skin underneath the rims of her glasses with her fingers. Hill said people need a place to be able to talk immediately

after losing a child. Hill said it took a long time to make the choice to move forward after her daughter Amy died of an asthma attack the day before Mother’s Day 15 years ago. For a period of time, she said she blamed herself. “You have to have a place where you can go and talk to people who understand you area not crazy,” Hill said. “You still need that support.” Zuck said with the unpredictable variety of emotions, and changes in family dynamics following Amy’s death, she sometimes felt as though she was going crazy. Having people to talk to gauge how much of that is a reality has been essential for her. After Zuck’s daughter Amber died in a car accident in 2007 she would spend so much time in her old bedroom, the family sold their “dream house,” just to move on. “It is important to know everyone is on their own journey,” Hill said. Since the group has all been going through the grieving process for a long time, they have some insight into productive ways for dealing with grief, Herrmann said. She wants to help people realize what she had to learn, which is that it is possible to live through the death of a child. There are about seven men that attend the meetings, which is important because men and

women grieve differently, Hill said. Saturday, the group also spent time talking about the logistics of outreach and if they should change the starting time for the meetings. Starting in January the meetings, which are held on the fourth Tuesday of every month, will start at 6 p.m. in the library community room. “It is a pretty sacred space,” Boyd said. The meetings are open to parents, step-parents, foster parents, siblings and mothers who have had a miscarriage or stillbirth, Boyd said. The group hosted their first candle lighting vigil at Christ Lutheran Church of Soldotna on Dec. 13, which also had a strong turnout, the group said. “As a parent this is not the right order,” Hill said. “You try to find a ‘new normal’ but things will always still blindside you.” Zuck said she wants the Compassionate Friends to help people feel hopeful. No one is alone in dealing with the death of a child and there is a way to honor and remember that relationship, Hill said. “Every time I go, I leave feeling comforted,” Herrmann said.

Bruce Schulte, spokesman for the Coalition for Responsible Cannabis Legislation. “If you read the ballot measure, it’s very specific in terms of the timeline. ... Some things were more loose, but the schedule was pretty welldefined. It’s our position that the ballot initiative was pretty clear.”

The ballot measure specified that adults no longer would be arrested under state law for possessing up to an ounce of pot outside their homes 90 days after election results were certified, which works out to be Feb. 24. The state has nine months after the law’s effective date to

create regulations for commercial sales, growers and testing. The state has three additional months to begin accepting applications and three more months to begin issuing permits. Under that timeline, commercial growers could begin to produce marijuana for sale in May 2016.

After graduating high school he attended and graduated from Al Collins Art School in Tempe, Arizona and received an AA in Graphic Arts. After graduation, he returned to Alaska and was employed by Peak Oilfield Services in Deadhorse. Chris loved life and did his best to live it to the fullest. He was kind, generous, compassionate and always willing to help anyone, anytime. He loved his family more than anything and wanted the best for everyone he knew. His most commonly used phrase was “there is always hope” and he truly believed that. He always put everyone’s needs before his own and anyone that knew him was lucky to have been a part of his life. Chris is survived by his wife, Shelly; stepson, Jimmy Love and wife, Heather and their children, Jordan and Delaney; stepson, Jeremy Love and wife, Anna, and their children, Jeramiah, Myra, Cole and Draiden; stepson, Justin Love and wife, Heather, and children, Arya and Aspen, and Aspen’s daughter, Ava; his mother, Marietta Blatchford; brothers, Francis, Quincy and wife, Ashley and Israel and wife, Amanda, and their son, Jade; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Edith Rae Maddux Edith Rae Maddux, 70, entered into eternal life with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, while in the comfort of her home, with her husband by her side in Payson, Arizona. Edith Rae Maddux was born in Stillwater, Oklahoma on March 15, 1944, daughter of Marston and Evelyn Madison. Edith graduated from Puyallup High School in 1962. She married the love of her life, Jack Maddux on Jan. 19, 1963 in Puyallup, Washington. Edith’s spirit is carried on by her husband of almost 52 years, Jack Maddux; her three children, Keri Himler and her husband Darrell; Cory Maddux and his wife Bonnie; and Jacquelyn Bell and her husband Dane; nine grandchildren, Kati Bennett, Kaci Pinnt, Harly and Drake Maddux, Chase and Cole Sedy, Daynene, Alyssa, and Cody Bell; and three great-grandchildren, Kamden, Evelyn, and Mackenzie. She is also survived by her parents, Marston and Evelyn Madison, and her brother, Keith Madison his wife Andrea, and an extended family of relations and friends. Following marriage, they finished Jack’s tour in the U.S. Navy in Hawaii, and moved back to Puyallup, Washington. They then moved to Alaska where they spent the majority of their lives together. After retirement, they spent their winters in Arizona, and summers in Alaska. Edith enjoyed fishing on the Kenai River, sewing, and cooking with her mother, and just spending time with her family. Her family writes, “We were each blessed to learn many of life’s lessons from Edith during her 70 years, among them was her ability to accept and love each and every person that came into her life. She loved and adored her husband and the life they created together. The pride and joy she had for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were always evident, each with a special place in her heart. She knew she was blessed, and her greatest joy and biggest accomplishment was her family. No matter what God gave her, Edith’s glass was always half-full, and never wavered from her faith. Her positive and loving outlook on life is her legacy, an example we all strive to achieve within our own lives. Even in her final days, we were witness to her desire to share and express her love of the Lord with family, friends, and strangers alike. We will all miss her in our own special way. Her spirit will eternally live on and resonate through each one of us.” The celebration of life for Edith will be held on Friday, Dec. 26, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. at Ponderosa Bible Church, 1800 North Beeline Highway, Payson, Arizona 85541. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Edith’s name to Ponderosa Bible Church at the address listed above for the ‘Youth Programs and Scholarships.’

Ernest Allan Stirman Ernest Allan Stirman, 79, died peacefully at his home in Soldotna on Monday, Dec. 15, 2014, due to heart complications caused by rheumatic fever, which he contracted as a child. Al was born May 6, 1935, in Portales, New Mexico, in a jail cell where his father was the sheriff. He had a long career as a communications technician, working for Pacific Bell in California and Mountain Bell in New Mexico. His wish to move to Alaska was fulfilled in 1975 when he was employed by RCA Communications (later Alascom) in Anchorage. After retiring in 1994, his “cabin” on the Kenai River — which he built himself in 1978 — finally became his full-time home. He will be remembered for his true cowboy spirit. He loved any western movie and good country music. He had a love of the river and made many wonderful fishing memories with his children and grandchildren. He was a one-of-a-kind husband, dad, and grandpa. Al also loved hunting, gardening, raising farm animals, and building houses, barns, and more. His social activities included bowling leagues in Anchorage and later Soldotna, and volunteering at the Funny River Community Center. In recent years he had fun traveling during the winter months around the Lower ’48 with his wife Helen, visiting family and playing at the casinos. One adventure even took him to South Africa for a hunting safari with his son, Russell. He is preceded in death by his second wife Delores “Dee” Lucas, formerly of Marion, Kansas; his parents Ocie and Florene; and two infant sons. He is survived by his wife Helen, formerly of Montana; children Russell (Louise) of Soldotna, Rhonda (Tony) of Wisconsin, Ted (Danette) of Washington, Laura (Eric) of Idaho, Katherine (Patrick) of Wasilla; grandchildren Jayna, Megan, Jacob, Josh, Justin, Samantha, Braden, Angela, Lehvi, Connor, Joe and Bryce; greatgrandchildren Bella, Shepard, and Aiden; brother Earl (Marcia) of Alamogordo, NM; an uncle, Hank Hankins, and cousins David Hankins and Linda (Bubba) Hankins, of Portales, New Mexico. There will be a memorial ceremony at his home next summer, details to follow. Memorials may be donated to the American Heart Association or the National Rifle Association. Arrangements made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel & Crematory. Please sign Al’s online guestbook at AlaskanFuneral.com.

Discussion of pot regulation should continue The discussion of if and how to regu-

late the commercial production and sale of marijuana is under way at the local level, and we’d encourage everyone on all sides of the issue to continue to contribute to the dialogue. Alaska voters passed Ballot Measure 2 in the Nov. 4 election, which, under state law, legalizes recreational use of marijuana and establishes a framework for regulating its production and sale. Under the new law, municipalities have the option of prohibiting marijuana cultivation, production, testing and retail facilities. Municipalities also may opt to establish ordinances governing when and where a marijuana establishment may operate. Local municipalities will not have control over personal cultivation and possession of marijuana, though the initiative includes some restrictions. The law takes effect Feb. 24, 90 days after the November election was certified. State agencies have 9 months to come up with commercial marijuana regulations. The knee-jerk response to legalization has been to propose municipal bans. There are many who agree with that stance — in fact, central Kenai Peninsula voters just said no on Ballot Measure 2 — but our community will be much better served with a thorough discussion on the topic. The Kenai Community Coalition on Cannabis hosted a town hall meeting last week to launch the dialogue on what organizer Eric Derleth termed a “more responsible industry.” It’s important that we as a community be able to lay out our concerns about marijuana and its potential impact in a forum that encourages a rational dialogue. We also need to be able to move past the yes-or-no debate, and come up with guidelines for potential marijuana businesses that address those concerns. With marijuana soon to be legal, the marijuana industry should be given the opportunity to show it can operate responsibly under reasonable regulation. If, after that discussion, the community feels regulations cannot sufficiently allay our concerns, then an outright ban on commercial activity will be appropriate. But we need to have that open, honest discussion before we decide.

Quotable “Are we now living in a world where we’re not allowed to say that these are bad people? Are we not allowed to make a movie where ISIS is the bad guy now? That’s been happening since Charlie Chaplin made ‘The (Great) Dictator.’ There’s so much political correctness that there (are) almost no villains left. ... Comedians attack power and corruption and things that feel wrong.” — Director Judd Apatow in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, commenting on Sony’s decision to cancel “The Interview” in the face of terrorist threats.

Setnet ban initiative is anti-salmon As you’re out shopping this holiday season, someone wielding a clipboard might approach you and ask if you want to save king salmon. Don’t be fooled. The petition being peddled by professional signature collectors throughout the state won’t save Alaska’s iconic king salmon. In fact, it will hurt our great salmon runs and result in smaller harvests for everyone except a small group of Kenai River sportfishing guides, lodges and private landowners. The goal of this petition is to put a misleading initiative in front of Alaska voters that, if passed, would end setnet fishing in Cook Inlet, put hundreds of Alaska families out of work, destroy one of the Kenai Peninsula’s biggest economic drivers and, most important, weaken the salmon runs on which Cook Inlet’s commercial, sport and personaluse fishermen depend. Initiative sponsors claim conservation as their goal but this initiative isn’t about saving fish, it’s about putting more king salmon in the river for the sport fishery to catch. That’s not conservation. It’s greed. This selfish effort to ban setnets hits home for me: My wife is my business partner; my two teen-age children are members of our commercial-fishing crew. Our business, our income, our investment in boats, motors, equipment, land, shore leases and gear would all be rendered valueless because a small group of well-financed, dishonest people want all the fish. It has taken the joy out of fishing and replaced it with fear for the future of this valuable, rich and colorful fishery. In 2013, the average king harvested in the East Side Setnet fishery was very small; more than 75 percent weighed about 10 pounds or less. These three- and fouryear-old kings are not valued by the sport fishery, which targets and retains only large kings. That same year, the ESSN fishery

the $9 million ESSN harvest brought roughly $40 million to the local economy. Had a setnet ban been in place, Alaska’s economy would have been deprived of these millions of dollars and thousands of fishing jobs. In order to offset the loss of the ESSN fishery, those additional 157 kings would have to generate more than $250,000 each, if caught in the in-river fishery. What is likely to happen if the inlet is managed solely for the guided sportfishing industry? Just look at the health of the Kenai River’s Early King run for your answer. This run is fished solely by the sport fishery, and has been for decades. Unfortunately, it is in dire straits, having missed its escapement goals several times over the last two decades, most recently in 2013. Recent weir data shows that the majority of the run now consists of small, male fish. That comes as no surprise, either, as sport fishermen have continually selectively fished for the large, trophy kings, foregoing the smaller jacks. Size is a heritable trait in king salmon, and the removal of generation after generation of the large fish by the guided sport fishery has had a detrimental impact on Kenai River early-run king salmon both in run strength and individual fish size. The ESSN fishery, with nets designed to catch sockeye weighing four- to 10-pounds, also catch kings of the same size, giving the big Kenai kings that make it to the spawning grounds a greater impact on the population’s gene pool. This anti-setnet initiative has nothing to do with truth or conservation. It’s simply a smoke screen to hide the negative impact of the guided sport fishery on the health and well being of Kenai River king salmon.

harvested 2,988 king salmon. According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s genetic stock identification studies, approximately 2,300 of these were Kenai River late-run king salmon. Only 715 were large kings the sport fishery desires. Based on data from 1986-2011, the Kenai River sport fishery harvests about 22 percent of the total annual king run. If the ESSN fishery had been eliminated and those additional 715 large kings had entered the Kenai River, only about 157 fish would have been caught by sportfishermen. So this initiative would kill an entire industry and put thousands out of work to provide sport-fishermen the opportunity to catch an additional 157 king salmon. Because of a poor king run in 2013, the ESSN fishery was open under a very restrictive fishing schedule. Even so, the fishery generated an ex-vessel value of more than $9 million with its sockeye salmon catch alone. At the same time, the late king run made its escapement goal as it has every year since biologists have tracked it. According to an analysis of Alaska’s commercial seafood industry conducted by the Alaska-based McDowell Group, sockeye taken in Cook Inlet setnet fisheries generate a big impact in Alaska because the expenditure per fish is relatively high, and more are sold into local markets.

That means

Cuba si, Congress no What a shame that President Barack Obama finds it so much easier to negotiate with the Castros than with the Congress. Of course, he did have help with the Cuban breakthrough, what with Pope Francis leading the way. But it’s doubtful the pope would want to get in the middle of White House-Capitol Hill talks, mainly because he’d consider it a waste of time. To make the point, some members of Congress were having their heads explode at the very first word of this preliminary Cuba deal, particularly those who had built their careers with the help of the old-guard hard-line exile community. Never mind that polls of Cuban-Americans now show that most favor normalization between the two countries and a rollback of the 50-plus years of confrontation. Sen. Marco Rubio, who has obvious presidential ambitions, was apoplectic as the first announcements resounded. “Concession to a tyranny,” he thundered. “A very bad deal,” added Ted Cruz, another senator, another CubanAmerican and another all-but-declared GOP candidate for the big megillah. Yet another Cuban-American senator, Robert Menendez, called the agreement “misguided,” the milder response perhaps a result of his being a Democrat. But he’s still oldschool and not inclined to be persuaded by the president’s argument that “isolation has not worked.” While the White House has the power to begin the process of normalization, it will be up to Congress to end the full trade em-

bargo, which has left the economy of our enemy to the south a relic of the 1950s. But don’t hold your breath. The Republicans are taking over the whole Congress, and they’re not about to be accommodat- Bob Franken ing. The Obama foreign-policy approach of engaging hostile countries like Cuba and Iran is constantly put down hard by his conservative enemies as “naive” or worse. Whether it is or not, making deals with devils has limitations. It’s hard to conceive of the United States soon making plans to construct an embassy in Pyongyang. While opponents charge the Cuban government with human-rights violations, the conduct of the North Korean leaders is inhuman. Their dealings with the rest of the world range between defiantly belligerent and outright crazy. Others can decide where on that spectrum North Korea’s current cyber-sabotage of Sony Studios rests. Its reaction to Sony’s plans to release “The Interview,” which is about an assassination attempt against North Korea’s leader, was a devastating hack job, laying waste to the studio’s entire computer infrastructure, and exposing for the world to see extremely embarrassing confidential communications. But even that was not enough.

Sony has been forced to withdraw “The Interview,” to cancel the showing that was scheduled to begin on Christmas Day, because the organization that was doing North Korea’s dirty work escalated with threats of violence at the movie houses showing the film. Naturally, the theater chains and the malls that provide the venues were a tiny bit nervous about that, so they dropped the show. That leaves Sony holding the multimillion-dollar bag and wondering why executives approved such a ridiculous project in the first place. This is a brutal reminder of just how susceptible we are to the havoc that can be wreaked by just a few geeks sitting in some basement with their keyboards and malicious intent. It also demonstrates how intertwined we are with countries around the world, to say nothing of the one that sits 90 miles from our shores. Slowly but surely, the commerce between Cuba and the United States has been expanding. Why not make it fastly but surely? Think of all the possibilities: New beaches to despoil with hotels, new smelly but legal cigars available for everyone in the U.S. Besides, all this gives us more to talk about, and in Washington, still another point of disagreement in Congress and the campaign. As if we need any more. Bob Franken is a longtime broadcast journalist, including 20 years at CNN.

Alaska Weird weather lingers across region By RACHEL D’ORO Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — A week before Christmas, Alaska’s largest city should look like a postcard wonderland, and the last place you’d expect to see equipment making snow. “We want Santa to bring snow, soon,” Terry Goodwin said as she hit a ski trail in Anchorage on Thursday near snowmaking machines churning out the white stuff. A picturesque northern winter-scape is hardly the reality here as a spate of weird weather lingers in Anchorage, which is almost 2 feet behind the snowfall totals typical by this time. With just days to go until solstice Sunday signals the official start of winter, bare ground can be seen in places and tempera-

“In a dream world, I’d like to already be pouring gold,” Parkan said. While Parkan would like to mine now, he says that realistically, it will be many years before mining can commence. One of the main reasons Donlin Gold and the Alliance thought it was important to give a presentation in Kenai was because of a proposed pipeline running from Cook Inlet to the site. The pipeline would be approximately 312 miles long, and although it would be buried, it would have some above ground structures to allow safety checks. “We will be getting gas from the Cook Inlet to fuel the power plant at our project site,” Parkan said. “Certainly Kenai has pipelines, natural gas pipelines in the area.

tures have been averaging in the 30s, prompting a few hardy residents to take to the streets in T-shirts and shorts. For the most part, it’s even been too warm to make snow for local ski haunts because the machines would churn out slush. However, a slight dip in temperatures allowed the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage to manufacture powder Thursday on trails at the city’s Kincaid Park. That will have to do until nature provides its own supply. “It’s one of those things we have to weather through. Pardon the pun,” said Craig Norman, a trail groomer for the association. By this time of year, Anchorage normally has 30.9 inches of snowfall, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Ludwig. But the city

has seen 10.3 inches this season from just two measurable snowfalls, with much of that melted down to a thin layer in many places. December has seen above normal temperatures every day so far, although Thursday’s high of 26 degrees came close to the norm of 25. Wednesday’s high temperature was 36 degrees. To date, the average temperatures for the month have been more than 8 degrees above normal, Ludwig said. The average low for December so far is nearly 23 degrees, compared with the normal low of 13. A pressure system that has pushed warmer weather to the north more than usual is a factor in the extended warming spell, according to Ludwig. Coastal water temperatures near Alaska also have been between 5 and 8

degrees above normal at times this year, he said. There is no bitter cold in the foreseeable forecast, either, with temperatures expected to be above or near normal through the end of the year, Ludwig said. There’s a decent chance of snow sometime next week, but probably not the big heaping mounds that would bring out hordes of winter recreationists, including skiers like Ludwig. Others may be tackling thinly covered cross-country skiing trails, but that’s not enough of a cushion for him, he said. “I tend to fall a lot,” he said. “I want more snow.” At the Hilltop Ski Area, crews also have been making snow for downhill runs, but that’s not doable when temperatures are above 25 degrees, said CEO Steve Remme.

the area) supports pipelines.” He said the idea for the pipeline wasn’t part of the original project. “The pipeline came about sort of late in the process,” Parkan said. “We originally were planning on barging diesel up the Kuskokwim, but when we went up to the region and started talking to the folks, there was some resistance to that idea, so we went back to the drawing board and realized a natural gas pipeline was actually cheaper for us and environmentally better than the diesel.” Parkan said in place of a gas pipeline, a diesel pipeline would also be considered by the company’s engineers. He said that most people he’s talked to are supportive of the project, but he is open to hearing the public’s concerns. “There are people who have concerns about the project and issues that they’ve been raising,” he said. “I think it’s im-

portant for people to raise those issues and concerns so they can be addressed.” Despite some people having concerns about the project, Parkan is confident in Donlin Gold’s ability to mine safely. “I think that we’ve shown that we’re committed to doing it safely, we’re committed to spending the money to do it right. We’re going above and beyond some of the regulatory requirements.” One example of Parkan cited was having extra safety measures at the site’s fully lined tailing facility. In the presentation, Parkan

said that Alaska would benefit from the project due to the increase in jobs as well as from taxes generated from the company’s $375 million annual payroll during construction and $97 million payroll during operations. Tim Musgrove, the president of the Kenai chapter of the Alliance, was pleased that Parkan took time to come to Kenai. “(The presentation was important) to educate the community on projects that would benefit the area.” Reach Ian Foley at ian.foley@peninsulaclarion.com.

Around Alaska New director plans Medicaid expansion ANCHORAGE — Alaska’s new Medicaid expansion project director plans to extend health care coverage to some of Alaska’s lowest-income residents. Alaska Dispatch News reported Saturday that Chris Ashenbrenner was appointed by Gov. Bill Walker when he created the new position. The planned expansion will extend Medicaid coverage to all Alaskans who earn up to 138 percent of the poverty level or about $20,120 per year. Before that can happen in Alaksa, Ashenbrenner will have to work through a series of hurdles. The state’s Medicaid eligibility and payment systems have been plagued with defects. She’ll also have to convince lawmakers to accept and spend federal funds on expansion and to allocate state dollars for infrastructure to handle the expanded program. Medicaid expansion was one of the key points during Walker’s campaign against former Gov. Sean Parnell, who said the expansion under the federal Affordable Care Act was too costly. When Ashenbrenner first took a job with the state in 1982, she worked as a clerk in the Division of Public Assistance, eventually rising to the role of director in 2001. Her focuses included implementing Denali KidCare and welfare reform. Most recently, Ashenbrenner served as the executive director of the Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault before retiring in 2009. She came out of retirement for the new post.

Cops’ killer angry over Eric Garner death By COLLEEN LONG and JENNIFER PELTZ Associated Press

NEW YORK — A gunman who announced online that he was planning to shoot two “pigs” in retaliation for the chokehold death of Eric Garner ambushed two police officers in a patrol car and shot them to death in broad daylight Saturday before running to a subway station and killing himself, authorities said. The suspect, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, wrote on an Instagram account: “I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours, let’s take 2 of theirs,” officials said. He used the hashtags Shootthepolice RIPErivGardner (sic) RIPMikeBrown. Police said he approached the passenger window of a marked police car and opened fire, striking Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu in the head. The officers were on special patrol in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. “They were, quite simply, assassinated — targeted for

their uniform. ... They were ambushed and murdered,” said Police Commissioner William Bratton, who looked pale and shaken at a hospital news conference. Brinsley took off running and went down to a nearby subway station, where he shot himself. A silver handgun was recovered at the scene. “This may be my final post,” he wrote in the Instagram post that included an image of a silver handgun. Bratton confirmed that Brinsley made very serious “anticop” statements online but did not get into specifics of the posts. He said they were looking at whether the suspect had attended any rallies or demonstrations. Two city officials with direct knowledge of the case confirmed the posts to The Associated Press. The officials, a senior city official and a law enforcement official, were not authorized to speak publicly on the topic and spoke on condition of anonymity, The Rev. Al Sharpton said the family of Garner, killed by a

Investigators work at the scene where two NYPD officers were shot, Saturday, Dec. 20, 2014 in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of the Brooklyn borough of New York. Police said an armed man walked up to two officers sitting inside the patrol car and opened fire before running into a nearby subway station and committing suicide. Both police officers were killed.

police chokehold this year, had no connection to the suspect and denounced the violence. “Any use of the names of Eric Garner and Michael Brown in connection with any violence or killing of police, is reprehen-

sible and against the pursuit of justice in both cases,” Sharpton said. “We have stressed at every rally and march that anyone engaged in any violence is an enemy to the pursuit of justice for Eric Garner and Michael

Brown.” The shootings come at a tense time. Police in New York are being criticized for their tactics following the death of Garner, who was stopped by police on suspicion of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes. Amateur video captured an officer wrapping his arm around Garner’s neck and wrestling him to the ground. Garner was heard gasping, “I can’t breathe” before he lost consciousness and later died. “Our city is in mourning. Our hearts are heavy,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio, who spoke softly with moist eyes. “It is an attack on all of us.” Demonstrators around the country have staged die-ins and other protests since a grand jury decided Dec. 3 not to indict the officer in Garner’s death, a decision that closely followed a Missouri grand jury’s refusal to indict a white officer in the fatal shooting of Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old. In a statement Saturday night, Attorney General Eric Holder condemned the shoot-

ing deaths as senseless and “an unspeakable act of barbarism.” Earlier Saturday, Bratton said, Brinsley went to the home of a former girlfriend in the Baltimore area and shot and wounded her. Police there said they noticed Brinsley posting to the woman’s Instagram account about a threat to New York officers. Baltimore-area officials sent a warning flier to New York City police, who received it around the time of the shooting, Bratton said. A block from the shooting site, a line of about eight police officers stood with a German shepherd blocking the tapedoff street. Streets were blocked off even to pedestrians. The president of the police officers union, Patrick Lynch, and Blasio have been locked in a public battle over treatment of officers following the grand jury’s decision. Just days ago, Lynch suggested police officers sign a petition that demanded the mayor not attend their funerals should they die on the job.

Jorge Luis Garcia Perez, known by his nickname “Antunez,” said to cheers. The gathering at a Little Havana park drew more than 200 people, largely older Cuban exiles who chanted “Obama, traitor!” and waved U.S. and Cuban flags. Some expressed disappointment that the protest was not larger; the demonstrators filled about half the park. “The mentality is, ‘Hey, we’re going to be able to buy Cuban cigars and rum.’ Well, it’s not a happy thing for us,” said Armando Merino, 68, who

Police brutality protesters rally at Mall of America . . . Cuba BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — A mass of demonstrators chanting, “Black lives matter,” converged in the Mall of America rotunda Saturday as part of a protest against police brutality that caused part of the mall to shut down on a busy day for holiday shopping. The group Black Lives Matter Minneapolis had more than 3,000 people confirm on Facebook that they would attend. Official crowd estimates weren’t immediately available, but pictures posted to social media by local news organizations showed the rotunda was full. Organizer Mica Grimm estimated about 3,000 people participated. The rally is part of protests happening nationwide after officers weren’t charged in the deaths of unarmed black men in Missouri and New York. During the rally, protesters shouted “While you’re on your shopping spree, black people

cannot breathe” — a reference to the chokehold police placed on Eric Garner, who died in New York. As they were dispersing, they walked down the hall with their arms raised, shouting “Hands up, don’t shoot!” That saying has been used in Ferguson, Missouri, in protests against the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and in demonstrations elsewhere. Bloomington police said 25 people were arrested, mainly for reasons such as trespassing. Commander Mark Stehlik said he was not aware of any injuries or property damage. Mall representatives had warned protesters in advance that they could be removed, arrested and banned. The mall’s management issued a statement Saturday saying it was “extremely disappointed” that protest organizers ignored the policy banning political protests. “It’s clear from their ac-

tions that these political activists were more concerned about making a political statement and creating a media event than they were about the safety of others, who came to Mall of America for an afternoon of shopping and family entertainment,” the statement said. About 30 minutes after the planned protest began, a final warning to disperse was given, and police in riot gear began clearing the rotunda, the Star Tribune reported. A large group of protesters began leaving the mall, but others migrated to a shopping area and occupied two levels. A small “die-in” was staged in front of several stores. About an hour later, organizers sent out a group text message advising those who were still inside to exit. Live video from KSTP-TV showed police in riot gear marching through the mall’s skyway, ushering protesters outside.

The Mall of America had increased security, and certain parts of the mall were closed for some time. Signs were posted at some entrances advising shoppers that the east side of the mall was on lockdown. The mall’s statement said the east side was shut down for the safety of shoppers and retailers while police were clearing the mall. All stores had reopened by Saturday evening. “While we respect the rights of free speech and peaceful assembly, those rights do not trump our right as private property owners to prohibit that behavior on our property,” the mall said Saturday. Grimm told the AP that organizers believed the protest was a success. “Our goal is to bring more attention to these issues — and what just happened, nobody can ignore,” she said.

Ranchers seeking alternative incomes

Betsy Blaney/AP Photo

Cowboys on the Muleshoe Ranch in Borden County work to get some cattle into a truck on Dec. 3, 2014. The ranch and others across the state suffered through the state’s driest year ever in 2011, forcing some to sell off many if not all of their animals or sending their cattle to other states to graze. Many ranchers have since worked to diversify their incomes with other enterprises including leasing water and hunting acres for deer, antelope and quail. By BETSY BLANEY and EMILY SCHMALL Associated Press

GAIL, Texas — The Muleshoe Ranch’s profits were chopped in half when the drought withered pastures, dried up stock tanks and forced the owner to move most of his cattle out of state. Three years later, the sprawling 33,000-acre West Texas ranch is again populated with cattle, thanks to improved rainfall. But John R. Anderson is no longer taking chances with his bottom line. The fourth-generation rancher is exploring alternative incomes to ensure his business can survive another hit from Mother Nature, including leasing part of his land for quail, deer and antelope hunting. “The drought opened our eyes to we need to be more diverse,” said Anderson, who ranches near Gail, about 70 miles south of Lubbock. “Our mind isn’t closed. If there’s something we can do we’re going to go for it, if it makes economic sense.” His counterparts in the nation’s top beef-producing state are doing everything they can to make up for the smaller profits since the drought, which began in early 2011, forced a widespread culling of herds. Though limited supplies have prompted a record rise in beef prices, more ranchers are leasing part of their property for hunting or selling water to oil companies

or desert plants and mistletoe to nurseries. Some are even taking side jobs to make ends meet. The changes may be permanent, and the ongoing drought is among the main factors that have indelibly altered the state’s centuries-old cattle ranching tradition, says Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association vice president Richard Thorpe. Hunting leases are perhaps the most popular way ranchers have diversified their incomes. Anderson will lease his land for as much as $5 an acre; other places charge thousands of dollars per gun. From the beginning of the drought through last year, the amount of land designated for hunting- and wildlife-management use increased by about a third to 4.1 million acres. The extra income offers financial stability to ranchers who have not yet fully replenished their numbers — down about 18 percent from 13.3 million cattle in Texas and at the lowest point nationally since the early 1950s. Several months after becoming a partial owner of the Bar L Ranch with her fiance two years ago in North Texas, Mandy Dauses realized the profit margins were thinner than she expected, due in part to having a smaller herd that was culled by nearly three-quarters. She now works full-time at a veterinarian’s clinic and spends nights and weekends tending to

the ranch, catching stray cattle and custom-baling hay for extra income. “Even though we don’t have as many (cattle), they’re bringing in so much money we can justify smaller numbers and still operate,” said Dauses, whose ranch in Kemp now holds about 120 head of cattle. While industry groups don’t keep count of how many ranchers are generating alternative incomes, they have noticed an uptick amid continued concerns of water scarcity and poor grazing conditions. Ranchers are more often turning to hunting ventures because wild animals do not require grass to feed on, cattle raisers association spokeswoman Stacy Fox said. “They realize they can make a lot of money without as much input,” she said. Some are marketing hunting opportunities and corporate retreats to the oil and gas industry, particularly in West Texas’ Permian Basin and the Eagle Ford shale formation in South Texas where production is booming. One such spot is Rosewood Ranch about 20 miles southeast of Dallas, which has set aside land for a nature preserve that draws birders, hunters and school groups. Manager Richard Braddock said the ranch is “running half the cattle we used to.” Oil and gas company executives have also been interested in buying up land from ranchers looking to get out of the business, said Bart Miller, the

managing broker at Mason & Morse Ranch Company LLC. But so far most ranchers in Texas have been loath to sell. Instead, they’re looking for ways to make it work. Anderson is just beginning his hunting business. And Dauses wants to rebuild her herd, but is doing what she can for now to ensure she’s in ranching for the long haul, explaining, “I got a job in town because that’s what it took.”

Obama’s gestures would do nothing to improve the prospects of a democratic Cuba. “The worst infamy is the pretext he used: He says it’s to help the Cuban people,” Diaz Balart said to chuckles from the audience. Flores, 38, one of the youngest Cuban American politicians in a state or federal office, rejected what some recent polls have shown: that while many older Cubans stand firm in their opposition to ending the embargo, younger generations are increasingly in favor of loosening sanctions. “Our generation feels as strongly and in some cases even more strongly than our parents,” she said. After Obama’s announcement this week, a poll conducted for the Miami Herald and Tampa Bay Times showed that CubanAmericans were almost evenly split on whether to support his plan, with 48 percent saying they disagreed with the president and 44 percent agreeing. The poll showed large divides between younger and older Cuban-Americans and whether they were born on the island or in the United States. Those born in the U.S. strongly supported Obama’s plan while those born in Cuba strongly opposed it. Cuban-Americans under 65 also supported the plan while those over 65 were strongly against it. Rey Anthony Lastre, 18, said he believed more young people weren’t at the protest because they “don’t have the same way

of expressing their feelings.” Freddy Suastegui, 31, of Miami, listened to the speeches with his family. He said the latest decisions disregard the work being done to promote change in Cuba. “What diplomacy is going to happen if the Castros aren’t promising anything and we’re going to go ahead and infuse them with more cash?” he said. “That just makes the regime stronger and the people weaker.” Miami is no stranger to pro-

‘Cuba needs freedom, and that freedom depends on the Cubans.’ —Berta Soler, Cuban dissident tests from the Cuban community. Of the estimated 2 million Cubans living in the United States, the majority resides in South Florida and many remain closely attuned to developments on the island. Thousands took to the streets after federal agents seized Elian Gonzalez in a prolonged international custody dispute and returned him to Cuba in 2000. Hundreds paraded Little Havana when Fidel Castro ceded power to his brother Raul in 2006. But protests and parades have become smaller and more sporadic. “I think there are a lot of people sitting on the sidelines, tired,” said Andy Gomez, a Cuba expert and retired University of Miami professor.

Human rights in spotlight after US-Cuba deal By PETER ORSI and PAUL HAVEN Associated Press

HAVANA — To many exiles and their allies, President Raul Castro is a brutal dictator who locks up dissenters in gulaglike jails, snuffs out political discourse and condemns his people to socialist poverty. Cuba’s supporters see the government as heroic, its sins justified by the behavior of its giant enemy to the north, and offset by the fact it provides health care and education that most developing countries could only dream of. As often is the case, the truth lies somewhere in between. President Barack Obama said on Friday that he began his historic call with Castro earlier in the week by delivering a 15-minute lecture on human rights and political freedom, adding: “This is still a regime that oppresses its people.” Even so, he said that US policy had failed to change Cuba for more than a half century and it was time to try something new. Human rights activists welcomed the overhaul of USCuba relations, but added that the Communist government has much to answer for, including a denial of freedom of speech, the banning of independent labor unions and a lack of fair and competitive elections. “I believe that President Obama is making the right decision, but that does not mean that our serious human rights concerns with regard to Cuba have gone away,” Jose Miguel Vivanco, executive director for the Americas division at Human Rights Watch, told The Associated Press. He said the abuses were “part of state policy, systematic and widespread.” Castro has defended the singleparty political system, saying open elections would be tantamount to “legalizing the party or parties of

imperialism on our soil.” Accusations of human rights abuses have dogged the Cuban government since the beginning, starting with summary trials and executions after the 1959 revolution that ousted dictator Fulgencio Batista, whose regime committed its own abuses, including torture, executions and persecution of the press. In the years that followed,

priests, gay people and others considered socially dangerous were sent to labor camps in the countryside, and political opponents were jailed or forced into exile. The panorama has undoubtedly shifted in recent years, particularly since Fidel Castro handed power to his brother in 2006. In 2010, Raul Castro negotiated a deal with the Roman

Catholic Church and Spain to free the last of 75 political dissidents who had been rounded up in 2003 and sentenced to long jail terms, and he has allowed more church freedom on the island, building on the opening worked out between Fidel and Pope John Paul II. Amnesty International counts five Cuban inmates as “prisoners of conscience,” down sharply from years past,

though Marselha Goncalves Margerin, the group’s advocacy director for the Americas, said Amnesty has campaigned for others that don’t meet its strict definition. “Cuba has always used the excuse of the U.S. embargo and restrictions to crack down on dissidents,” she said. “Once this is removed, we do hope this will generate human rights changes.” As part of this week’s deal with the United States, Castro agreed to free 53 people the White House describes as dissidents, though their identities have not been released. It was not clear if any of those on Amnesty’s list were among them. Elizardo Sanchez, one of the only independent human rights activists tolerated on the island, said he has been getting calls from inmates asking him if he has a list and whether they’re on it, but he’s had to say he doesn’t know. There’s been no evidence of any mass release, he said. Sanchez also welcomed the restoration of diplomatic ties with the United States, despite what he described as a sharp increase in acts of harassment and intimidation. While the government has moved away from sentencing dissidents to long jail terms, he said that short-term detentions have spiked under Raul Castro, from 2,074 in 2010 to 8,410 through the first 11 months of

this year. Cuban authorities dismiss his findings as a fiction, and consider the dissidents to be paid stooges of Washington. While the Castro government has not budged on the issue of a one-party state, Vivanco says that Cuba’s rights problems aren’t in the same league as a country such as North Korea, and says there has been movement on some key issues such as freedom of travel that was tightly controlled under Fidel Castro. The younger Castro has opened the island to some private enterprise, and allowed Cubans to own cellphones and computers. Rights for the LGBT community have also advanced under Raul Castro, whose daughter is the island’s most prominent advocate for gay rights. The government’s free universal health care system now pays for gender reassignment surgery, and gay pride parades are an annual fixture. Elizardo Sanchez warned against believing that an improving relationship between Washington and Havana would change much on the human rights front. “I don’t think there’s a causeand-effect relationship between the normalization of relations between the countries and the necessary implementation of reforms by the Cuban government,” he said. Obama concurred, saying he did not expect improvements overnight.

Sony hacking has foreign intrigue, star wattage By TAMI ABDOLLAH and ERIC TUCKER Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — The hackers who hit Sony Pictures Entertainment days before Thanksgiving crippled the network, stole gigabytes of data and spilled into public view unreleased films and reams of private and sometimes embarrassing executive emails. One month later, the Obama administration confirmed what many had suspected: The North Korean government was behind the punishing breach. U.S. officials are promising a response, unspecified so far. It was an extraordinarily public reaction from the highest levels of American government, considering that far more vital domestic interests have taken hits from foreign hackers in recent years — including the military, major banks and makers of nuclear and solar power whose trade secrets were siphoned off in a matter of mouse clicks. Yet even in a digital era with an endless cycle of cyberattacks, none has drawn the public’s attention like the Sony breach and its convergence of sensational plotlines: —an isolated dictator half a world away. —damaging Hollywood gossip from the executive suite. —threats of terrorism against Christmas Day moviegoers.

—the American president chastising a corporate decision to shelve a satirical film. —normally reticent law enforcement agencies laying bare their case against the suspected culprits. “I can’t remember the U.S. talking about a proportional response to Chinese espionage or infiltration of critical infrastructure for that matter, as a policy issue in the same way that we’re talking about this today,” said Jacob Olcott, a cyberpolicy and legal issues expert at Good Harbor Security Risk Management and a former adviser to Congress. President Barack Obama said Friday the U.S. would respond to the cyberattack, though he did not say how, after the FBI publicly blamed North Korea. He also criticized Sony’s decision to cancel the release of “The Interview,” a comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korea’s leader. “This is uncharted territory,” said Chris Finan, a former White House cybersecurity adviser. “The things we do in response to this event will indelibly serve to influence future nation state behavior.” North Korea has denied hacking the studio, and on Saturday proposed a joint investigation with the U.S., warning of “serious” consequences if Washington said no. The White House sidestepped the idea, said it was

‘The things we do in response to this event will indelibly serve to influence future nation state behavior.’ — Chris Finan, former White House cybersecurity adviser confident that North Korea was responsible and urged North Korean government officials to “admit their culpability and compensate Sony for the damages this attack caused.” At the same time, the U.S. was reaching out to China, North Korea’s key ally, to ask for its cooperation as the U.S. weighs its response, said a senior Obama administration official, who wasn’t authorized to comment by name and requested anonymity. Although China holds considerable leverage over the North and its technological infrastructure, involving Beijing could pose complications because Obama has pointedly accused China of engaging in its own acts of cybertheft. Friday’s announcement was a critical moment in an investigation that united the government and cybersecurity professionals who conducted painstaking

technical analysis. The breach was discovered days before Thanksgiving when Sony employees logged onto their computers to find a screen message saying they had been hacked by a group calling itself Guardians of Peace. Experts scoured months of system logs, determining through spikes in network traffic and other anomalies that the attackers had conducted surveillance on the network since spring. The first goal was to determine the extent of the damage to the network, so crippled that investigators or any other visitors needed handwritten credentials to gain entry. As they examined the malware, they detected that it was similar to DarkSeoul, used in attacks on South Korea banking and media institutions and connected to North Koreans. Investigators determined the Internet protocol addresses used, and found that one in Bolivia was the same as one in the DarkSeoul hack. They also found time zone and language settings in Korean, and that the malware itself had source code believed to be held by North Korea. The FBI statement said clues included similarities to other tools developed by North Ko-

C

M

rea in specific lines of computer code, encryption algorithms and data deletion methods. More significantly, the FBI discovered that computer Internet addresses known to be operated by North Korea were communicating directly with other computers used to deploy and control the hacking tools and collect the stolen Sony files. That analysis, along with a North Korean official’s declaration that “The Interview” was an “act of war,” served to bolster the case for a North Korean motive. In general, it’s exceedingly difficult to pin down responsibility for a cyberattack because hackers typically try to throw investigators off their trail. North Korea’s Internet infrastructure is air-gapped, or not directly connected to the outside world, except by proxies through other countries, so it’s even more difficult to attribute the hack. Even when investigators do zero in on suspected culprits, there’s often a political calculation about when and whether to publicly name them. The Justice Department took the unusual step in May of announcing indictments against five Chinese military officials accused of cyberespionage, but

in many other instances, the public never learns the nationalities of the hackers, much less their identities. In Sony’s case, the FBI had been cautious about assigning blame to North Korea despite the evidence. Just a week before the public announcement, FBI Director James Comey had told reporters, “Before we attribute a particular action to a particular actor, we like to sort the evidence in a very careful way to arrive at a level of confidence that we think justifies saying ‘Joe did it’ or ‘Sally did it,’ and we’re not at that point yet.” Beyond the FBI’s announcement Friday, there were no details on remedies for Sony, no statement holding North Korea responsible for the alreadyknown criminal acts of leaking copyright material, and no demand that North Korea return the stolen data. “It seems highly unusual for the U.S. government to make an announcement like the FBI made today without a corresponding plan of action, which is exactly what was missing from the statements,” Olcott said. “It was a press release to encourage more companies to work with the FBI in the future, but we actually don’t really know why.”

CIA girls nab Classic SoHi boys JV edge Eagles, Sea Otters for boys crown By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

Cook Inlet Academy’s Emma Lyons guards Seldovia’s Marina Chissus on Saturday at Cook Inlet Academy in Soldotna.

When the buzzer sounded Saturday night signaling the end of the final game of the CIA Classic tournament, the Seldovia boys hoops team was celebrating a big 55-34 victory over Peninsula Conference rival Cook Inlet Academy, but it was another team walking away with the championship trophy. The Soldotna boys JV squad took home the hardware after winning a tiebreaker based on the team’s free-throw percentage over the three days. The Stars compiled a 63.4 percent shooting mark from the charity stripe, while Seldovia ranked second with a 61 percent tally.

“I don’t care,” said Seldovia coach Mark Janes with a smile. “We came here and wanted to do well. “I mean, you do care, but the victory matters mostly just for our conference.” SoHi, Seldovia and CIA all finished the tournament with a 2-1 record, locking the trio in a three-way tie. Ultimately, the winner was decided with free-throw percentage, and head-to-head matchup decided the second- and third-place rankings, which is where Saturday’s game came into play. Opinions on using free-throw percentage as a championship tiebreaker varied, but most competitors were fine with it. “It’s got its downsides, but this early

in the season, what a great teaching tool for my guys,” Janes said. CIA coach Justin Franchino said he was in favor of the format, which he described as “designed to make teams better.” “I’m glad we didn’t get the tiebreaker,” Franchino said. “These tournaments are fun because you get to see other teams, and we got our weaknesses exposed. Now, going forward, we can correct the things we need to.” The game itself went from being a barnburner to a blowout in pretty short order.

SoHi, Homer hockey play to scoreless tie By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

It may be the holiday season, but both the Soldotna and Homer hockey teams were not in a giving mood Friday in Northstar Conference action at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex. The two squads, who had played three times previously this season with SoHi winning twice, played to a scoreless draw. The Stars enter the holiday break at 5-6-2 and 0-3-1 in the conference, while the Mariners are 7-5-1 and 1-3-1. “We wanted to win, but we’re also happy not to lose,” Soldotna coach Derek Urban said. “Defensively, we played well, but offensively I don’t think we got enough traffic in front of the net.” Homer coach John Carlin also said the game was a relatively positive way to enter the break. “It was a defensive battle, but all of that wasn’t necessarily due to the defense,”

Carlin said. “Both offenses didn’t do what they typically do.” Billy Yoder had 19 saves to record the shutout for Soldotna, while Markian Polushkin had 25 saves for Homer. Not much can be read into the fact that Soldotna outshot Homer. It was the type of game where just as one team would appear to be getting a clear advantage by attacking at one end, the other team would rush down the ice and do some attacking of its own. While neither goaltending performance was epic, both were solid. Yoder saved a breakaway and a contested breakaway, both by Garrett Butcher, in the third period. “Billy was Billy when Billy had to be Billy,” Urban said. About one minute into the eight-minute overtime, SoHi had a two-on-one that even could have been called a three-on-one, but Polushkin stood strong. See PUCK, page B-3

Thunder Mountain takes Challenge Staff report

The Thunder Mountain girls wrapped up the Kenai River Challenge championship Saturday with a 40-33 victory over Kenai Central. The Falcons used a big fourth quarter to post the Saturday victory and finish the tournament 3-0. Thunder Mountain also defeated Soldotna 60-32

on Friday. The Kards, who lost to Homer on Friday, finished the tournament 1-2. Kenai led 26-22 heading into the final eight minutes, but the Falcons posted an 18-7 advantage for the win. Alondra Echiverri and Ashley Young each had 11 points to lead the Falcons. For Kenai, Abby Beck had a game-high 14

Nikiski girls claim Sitka tournament Staff report

The Nikiski girls basketball team used a defensive tiebreaker to win the Holland America tournament on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Sitka. The Bulldogs started the tournament by defeating the hosts 30-27 on Thursday. Friday, Nikiski lost to Mt. Edgecumbe 34-16. “We couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn,” Nikiski coach Scott Anderson said. “They played really well. “One of the things about us is we’re fairly young and still figuring things out.” Rachel Thompson led the Bulldogs in that game with nine points. Saturday, Nikiski topped

‘We did play really great defense the whole weekend.’ — Scott Anderson, Nikiski girls head coach Houston 25-22. Sitka had beaten Mt. Edgecumbe in the round-robin tournament, so that left three teams at 2-1. The Bulldogs were declared the champion due to the least total points allowed in all three games. “We did play really great defense the whole weekend,” Anderson said. “When we get the other parts of our game going, C

M

we know that part is going to be there for us.” Alison Litke made the alldefensive team for Nikiski, while Thompson was honored on the all-offensive team. Nikiksi boys coach Reid Kornstad also was happy with the weekend his team had. The Bulldogs started with a lopsided loss to Mt. Edgecumbe on Wednesday in a game that was not part of the tourna-

ment. But Kornstad then said the team played really well in losing 68-62 to Sitka in the tournament opener Thursday. Nikiski then defeated Craig on Friday and Houston 56-44 on Saturday to take second in the tournament. “It was a good tournament,” Kornstad said. “It was a good learning experience. We didn’t play well on Wednesday against Mt. Edgecumbe, but then we came back and played a good Sitka team tough on their home floor.” Cade Anderson made the all-offensive team for the Bulldogs, while Nathan Carstens, just one week after winning a state wrestling title, was on the all-defensive team.

Chargers nip 49ers By The Associated Press

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Nick Novak kicked a 40-yard field goal nearly 5 minutes into overtime after Philip Rivers rallied San Diego back from a 21-point deficit in the second half, keeping the Chargers’ slim playoff hopes alive with a 38-35 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night. Rivers threw a tying 11-yard touchdown pass to Malcom Floyd with 29 seconds left in regulation after completing a pair of fourth-and-longs as the Chargers (9-6) forced overtime. Phil Dawson’s 60-yard field goal attempt for San Francisco as regulation ended fell way short. Quinton Patton fumbled in overtime to set up San Diego’s winning drive. Rivers converted fourth-and-8 and fourth-and-10 on the key final San Diego drive of the fourth quarter. Rivers threw touchdown passes of 21 and 1 yard to Antonio Gates and another to Eddie Royal, but also was hurt by three interceptions. On one of those, Antoine Bethea had a 49-yard return for his first career touchdown. REDSKINS 27, EAGLES 24 LANDOVER, Md. — Kai Forbath kicked 26-yard field goal with 5 seconds left to lift Washington past Philadelphia, putting the Eagles on the brink of elimination from the playoff race. The Redskins snapped a six-game losing streak. The Eagles lost their third in a row to fall to 9-6. They need the Dallas Cowboys to lose their final two games to have a shot at repeating as NFC East champs. The Redskins improved to 4-11. Robert Griffin III returned as the Washington starter and won in his first complete game in more than a year. He went 16 for 23 for 220 yards with one interception.

Vonn clinches downhill victory VAL D’ISERE, France (AP) — Just four races back into her skiing career, Lindsey Vonn is on the verge of World Cup history. After clinching a second straight win — and third consecutive podium — with a victory in Saturday’s downhill, the 30-year-old American now has the chance to secure a 62nd career win in Sunday’s super-G and

move level with Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proll for alltime wins. “I have to get there first. If it happens tomorrow, great,” said Vonn, a four-time World Cup champion. “I feel like I have been talking about (the record) for a long time now and, if I keep talking about it, I feel like it’s never going to happen.”

It would have been a distant dream one year ago, however, when she re-injured her troublesome right knee on the same Oreiller-Killy course in Val d’Isere and required surgery for the second time. The first knee operation came after she tore two ligaments following a spectacular fall at the world championships 10 months earlier.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati basketball coach Mick Cronin has an aneurysm and will be sidelined indefinitely while doctors decide how to treat it. The unruptured aneurysm was detected when the 43-year-old coach got tests this week to see why he’s been having headaches.

An aneurysm is a bulge in the wall of a blood vessel. A school spokesman declined to say exactly where Cronin’s is located. Cronin told his players about 90 minutes before Saturday’s matchup with VCU that he would not be on the sideline. He did not stay for the game, a 68-47 loss.

Carter also pinned his way to the final. Kenai sophomore Paul Steffensen fought his way to the 145-pound final, but was pinned by Eagle River’s Marcus Amico midway through the second round to take second place overall. Also finishing second was Kenai’s Zach Koziczkowski in the heavyweight division. Koziczkows-

ki was pinned by Service’s Nicholas Stevens 1:23 into the 285-pound title round. Soldotna’s Rodney French grabbed a podium result in the 195-pound class, finishing third to top all SoHi wrestlers. French pinned Bartlett’s Oscar Lugo 17 seconds into the second round of the third-place match. Dalton Best took fourth place in the heavyweight division, pinning his way into the third-place match, where Bartlett’s Wyatt Bruso pinned Best just eight seconds into the second round.

absolute strong suit, but he’s a capable runner,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. “He’s deceptive.” So were the Utes, who have won 11 of their last 12 bowl games. Utah (9-4) scored on its first three possessions and used big plays that measured 36, 49 and 60 yards. They also employed

what Whittingham called some “trickeration.” On their first offensive snap, the Utes confused Colorado State when Wilson flipped the ball to running back Devontae Booker, who threw it back to Wilson, who then heaved it down field to Kaelin Clay for 36 yards to the Colorado State 17.

26 points, Seldovia clamped down hard on the Eagles, holding them to only five points in the third quarter and three in the fourth quarter. Smithwick ended the game with 24 points. “We played a lot of pressure defense and keep the pressure on the whole team,” Janes said. “We had one guy looking at (Timmy) the whole time.” Seldovia’s suffocating defense left CIA with few options at the end of the game, but the Sea Otter offense wasn’t slacking by any means. Juniors Calem Collier and Aidan Philpot combined for 44 points, with Collier leading the way with 23 and Philpot adding 21. “We just played tighter defense,” Philpot said of the second-half effort. Philpot said his on-court battles with Smithwick and the rest of the CIA players over the past few years have fueled his desire to beat the Eagles on the court. Saturday’s win — even though his team didn’t claim the tournament title outright — made it all the more satisfying. “Ever since seventh grade it’s been like this,” Philpot said. “Our team and Timmy and CIA. Usually we pull it out though.” Philpot hit two crucial 3-pointers in the opening minute of the fourth quarter to push Seldovia’s lead from eight to 14 points. The pair of treys were a part of a larger 16-0 run that Seldovia produced in the fourth quarter that iced the game. “I just tried to run our offense, and they were playing a zone (defense) and so the corners were open,” Philpot said about

ter admitted. “I’ve been coaching for over 30 years now and it doesn’t matter if it’s C, JV or varsity games, I get excited every time. I try to be calm on the bench but sometimes I just explode.” Friday’s win was also important in the Win Percentage Index standings, which are a season-long scale of how statewide teams are performing, not too dissimilar to the national college football rankings. The WPI ranks teams based on wins, toughness of schedule and opponent records. “It’s very important,” Tuter said. “I was telling the kids that you can set yourself up to go to state right now as well as you can in the last week (of the season). Let’s take care of things right now.” After one half of play, the Stars and the Moose were deadlocked at 20 apiece going into halftime. The biggest lead of the night had been five points. Coming out of the break, Palmer seized control with an 8-2 burst that included consecutive treys from Tye Ramoth and Clayton Southwick. Ramoth ended the night with three 3s and 18 points to lead the Moose. However, the momentum changed hands quickly, starting with a pair of free throws by Furlong with 3:32 to play in the quarter. On the next SoHi possession, Duke cut through the lane for a layup, then followed that with a quick steal and a long shot from beyond the arc that put SoHi within a point of Palmer, 30-29. Ramoth responded with a midrange jumper for Palmer, but Dylan Kuntz came back for SoHi with a contested shot of his own. Duke then put away the go-ahead shot with 1:13 to play in the third quarter, once again slashing through the key for a layup. The next two Palmer possessions ended in steals and layups and a 37-33 Soldotna lead. “At first it was the press, and then it was about reading the ball and breaking up the passing lanes,” Duke said about the point swing. The closest that the Moose got to the lead after that was midway through the fourth quarter, when Southwick dumped in a layup and hit the extra foul shot to close the gap to 42-40 with 5:25 left in the game. “I wanted to slow it down and spread it out, but we have a hard time doing that,” Tuter said. “It’s hard to switch when you’re playing so hard. You’re running and jumping and it’s

his sharpshooting performance. Smithwick hit eight shots — including three 3s — to get CIA’s offense going early, while Seldovia’s biggest scorer in the first half came from senior Seth O’Leary and Philpot, who had nine points each. “(Smithwick) played a great first half, shots were falling for him,” said CIA coach Justin Franchino. “The second half, the same things weren’t happening. It just came down to us not executing and playing the way we’re supposed to play.” Seldovia held a precarious 29-26 lead at the half, but when Johnny Smithwick sunk a 3 with 6:15 remaining in the third quarter, it brought the gap down to one point. From there, Collier took over with several quick slashes to the bucket that pushed the lead to 3931 after three quarters. Philpot’s pair of long-range buckets to begin the fourth quarter ended up as icing on the cake.

added five. Both players were named to the All-Tournament team. After CIA pushed its lead to 20-11 with just over five minutes to play in the first half, the Sea Otters pushed back with three straight buckets from Turner, Monique Cook and Cyrena Joseph that cut the deficit to three points. “(Turner) had a phenomenal half,” Leaf said. “It wasn’t that we were playing bad defense, she was in heavy coverage and hitting everything.” After a few adjustments during halftime — in which CIA led 24-17 — the Eagles came out in the second half and began to frustrate the Sea Otters offense. Seldovia scored three points total in the second half.

ference Seldovia boys dominated Kalskag to the tune of a 68-21 win Friday at the CIA Classic tournament at Cook Inlet Academy. Calem Collier poured in 33 points — including 13 in the third quarter — to lead Seldovia, while teammate Aidan Philpot added 14. Derrick Holmberg led Kalskag with eight points.

CIA boys 59, Soldotna JV 52 The host Cook Inlet Academy boys grabbed a close win over the SoHi JV squad Friday, setting the Eagles up for a Saturday match with Seldovia. Timmy Smithwick scored 14 of his team-high 20 points in the first half, while teammate and brother Riley Smithwick notched 17 points, hitting five 3s along the way. Soldotna’s Derek Evans scored a game-high 22 points, including 12 in the first quarter. SoHi took control of the opening quarter, moving out to a 19-17 lead heading into the second frame. However, CIA outscored the Stars 16-8 and by halftime held a 33-27 lead.

The SoHi JV finished off its weekend with a comfortable win over Kalskag Saturday at CIA, effectively earning the Stars the championship. Kyle Marcuson’s 13 points led the Stars, while teammates Caleb Spence and Derek Evans chipped in 11 apiece. Kalskag was led by Derrick Holmberg, who scored 19 points, and Austin Hetherington with 15.

hard to turn that off sometimes.” Tuter said he thought Drew Fowler produced a great effort guarding Southwick, a 6-foot5 freshman who hit seven 3-pointers for 32 points Thursday against Homer. Southwick had two 3s for 14 points Friday against the Stars. “Drew did a great job slowing (Southwick) down and making him work for shots,” Tuter said. Fowler also played a role in the late SoHi surge, hitting two crucial layups that pushed SoHi’s lead from two to six points with under five minutes to play. From there, Duke, Furlong and Hunter Phillips all converted free throws that iced the game in the final two minutes. Kenai Central 52, Seward 46 The Kardinals eked out a hard-fought victory over the Seahawks on Friday. Sophomore Josh Jackman led Kenai with 20 points, 11 coming in the fourth quarter. Jackman also came up clutch at the charity stripe, hitting 9 of 13 free throws. “We were better tonight than we were last night,” said Kenai coach Ken Felchle, referring to Kenai’s 67-44 loss Thursday to Thunder Mountain. “We talked last night that we could compete with that team, but the reality is we’re not the biggest, fastest or strongest team,” Felchle said. “In order for us to compete, we have to be fundamentally sound.” Kenai junior Taylor Landry added eight points and eight rebounds and junior Austin McKee notched six points and seven boards. After an even opening quarter, Kenai forged ahead with a 3-pointer from Jackman with 1:56 to play before the halftime break. Jackman added a jump shot with 1:20 left and added the free throw after the foul to put Kenai ahead 22-18 at the half. Heading into the fourth quarter, Kenai led 31-27, but Seward refused to go away quietly, getting numerous big plays from senior Michael Wolfe down the stretch. “The game plan was to try to deny the inbound (pass),” said Seward coach Curtis Berry about the final few minutes. “If they get it in, then foul, but we missed a couple of cues. We’re still a little loose in the legs.” Wolfe ended with 21 points, including hitting 8 of 10 free throws, to lead Seward, while teammate Ronnie Jackson had 14 points. Kenai extended its lead to nine points with 3:31 left in the game, but a pair of free throws from Jackson and a 3-pointer from Wolfe quickly closed the

gap to 42-38 with 2:51 remaining. From there, Seward began fouling the Kards for more scoring opportunities. Jackman delivered by hitting 7 of 10 shots from the line, even though Wolfe countered with another trey with 1:34 remaining that cut the gap back to 46-41. Another 3 from Jackson with 21 ticks left resulted in a 49-46 lead for Kenai, but Jackman iced it with a layup and a foul on the ensuing possession. “We shot well from the freethrow line tonight, but Seward is a quality team,” Felchle said. “That group of boys have been playing together for two or three years, and they can shoot the basketball. “We knew when we went ahead that we’d have to earn it, and (Seward) demonstrated it because they hit some big shots.” Felchle said the Seahawks’ shooting kept Kenai on its toes, but the Kardinals responded with a solid defensive effort. Kenai won the rebounding battle 31-18 and the turnover battle 14-18. Thunder Mountain 61, Homer 42 The Falcons continued a perfect tournament with a rout of the Mariners on Friday in Soldotna. The Falcons got offensive production out of almost every player, big and small. Jacob Calloway, a 6-6 senior, led the team with 20 points — including 10 in the first quarter — while 5-4 junior Jeremiah Stephens added 15 points on five 3s. Overall, Thunder Mountain put up nine 3-pointers. “He’s been shooting the ball well,” said Falcons coach John Blasco about Stephens, who hit three treys in the second quarter. “He’s fun to watch, he’s a quick tiny guard, and he gets that shot off quick.” It was Stephens that helped Thunder Mountain turn a fourpoint lead after the first quarter into a 21-point lead by halftime. “We really wanted to convert on missed shots and turnovers,” Blasco said. “We held them to only three points there, and we converted a lot on the other end. It worked out for us in that quarter.” Homer held an early 6-1 lead midway through the first quarter, but a 3-pointer from Calloway got the ball rolling on the Thunder Mountain offense with 5:03 left. Another trey from Calloway with 2:24 remaining in the first pushed the Falcons lead to 158, and then the second quarter started. Consecutive buckets by Stephens from outside the

narrow victory over Kalskag Friday at the CIA Classic. Marina Chissus scored 10 of her team-high 14 points in the first half, when Seldovia outscored Kalskag 14-10, and held Kalskag scoreless in the opening quarter. Olivia Turner added 11 points to follow Chissus. Marissa Abarea scored 16 of Kalskag’s points to lead the team, hitting four 3-pointers.

arc pushed Thunder Mountain’s lead to 25-12 midway through the second frame, and a third trey left the Falcons with 14-point advantage with 3:23 to go before halftime. “I like when my bench guys are hitting 3s,” Blasco said. “It kind of surprises you but it makes you feel good.” Blasco said breakaway points from turnovers kept the Falcons rolling. “Each team is showing us something different, which is exposing the weaknesses that I know we have,” he explained. First-year Homer coach Nate Creel said once Homer found itself in a sizeable hole, it was difficult to dig out of. “One of their guys got a little hot, made a couple 3s, and once they started pulling away, I think my guys got down a little bit,” Creel said. “I thought we played a great second half, our defense was good. We just let them get away in that second quarter.” Kenneth Schneider led the Mariners with 16 points, while Sheldon Hutt added 13 points, 12 coming in the second half.

ome this Christmas Eve it will two decades since I experienced an unrivaled eruption of grandeur helping me sidestep a pointless night of lonesomeness. It began as just another occasion where I ended up working along a high Arctic section of the Dalton Highway during a festive time of year. Vacation rotations work out that way sometimes and during particular spans of employment I spent more than my share in remote locations with the military and then again in various civilian endeavors. I certainly had no right for any remonstration. I had chosen to follow the life paths that led me to the challenges such journeys embodied, whether it was on an Asian mountain top or the environs of the Brooks Range. Christmas has always been a quintessential time for clans to reinforce family bonds and share memories from the past year before such accounts slip away into the void of fading recollections. Thirty-seven years ago my life became even more special when Jane and I exchanged wedding vows on the eve of such a remarkable day. From that point on, being away during the Christmastide always engendered second thoughts because of the time lost with her, but because of the strength of our union, no matter how belatedly I crossed the threshold of our cabin, all of the same Christmas sentiment and atmosphere awaited my arrival. Then twenty years ago, I was faced with the first Christmas without the prospect of hearing the warm voice of either of my parents. Sadness gently wrapped my soul and an emptiness I had never felt settled in as I rolled out onto the Haul Road. Close to midnight, as I passed through the rolling hills north of Brooks Range, the moonless, sub-zero, sky was suffused with a profound clarity showcasing the stars with a brilliance enveloping the deep space like a colossal and glittering crystal chandelier. Nothing moved across the landscape other than my headlights probing for any sign of an errant caribou wandering the highway or the wolf pack that crossed my path near Toolik Lake three days prior. I had forgotten my tapes so I attempted to locate a radio station to ride shotgun and keep me vigilant. But signal skips from the Lower 48 produced only weak and quickly fading voices along with static-bathed hints of holiday music so I opted for Plan Z, the self inflicted pain of my fractured baritone. I was preparing to belt out a tragically off key version of Feliz Navidad when the Barrow radio station suddenly took mercy and came booming in with Silent Night just as I became conscious of the western horizon giving birth to a slight and pulsating glow. Minute by minute the light amplified until a magnificent waving curtain of silver and green aurora stretched from north to south. It continued its expansion soaring upward until it became an awning of swirling light and color above me. It was so stunning that I pulled aside, shut the lights off, and stepped into another universe. The drapery of charged ions began to morph into rivers of mystical multicolor illuminations that swirled and tumbled across the sky encompassing a 360 degree field of vision. I swore I could hear a muffled hiss as undulating displays contracted, then exploded into soaring columns of bluish green radiance in support of what had become the ceiling of a celestial cathedral. I stood mesmerized by the manifestations while classic carols resonated from the radio as if they were directed and powered from the churning aurora about and above me. The earth beneath my boots was solid and as anchored as the mountains to the south. But, as the atmosphere continued to fill with spiraling dances of spectral enchantments, I felt a slight case of vertigo while striving to absorb what was transpiring in such a flickering space of time. The exultant rays finally tired and took leave delegating the shine of the heavens to the scintillating stars patiently waiting in the wings. Their departure came none too soon because if the alluring presentation of celestial colors and configurations had continued much longer some passerby would have discovered a body frozen in place with its eyes riveted on the cosmos. I sat for awhile wishing for an encore but the universe of stars remained stoical and unbrushed by any tint of color or promise of another silken veil swaying in the solar winds, so I moved on. My trace of loneliness had vanished and there was no room in my heart for sadness. Both had been replaced by a sense of humbling awe. The power of that event resonates within me to this day and what happened can be interpreted in a thousand ways but to me it was a gift of insight that no one walks alone through life. It was a simple message but sometimes it takes the world standing still while the aerosphere explodes to get my attention. Merry Christmas. Nick can be reached at ncvarney@gmail.com.

Carbon monoxide, a silent killer Winter in Alaska provides us many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, or more often to spend some quality time indoors too. Staying warm while it’s cold outside is a primary concern to most all of us, but there can be unforeseen hazards from the odorless, colorless gas, carbon monoxide. This product of combustion results in deaths each winter across the nation and especially here in Alaska. You can learn about this silent killer in the free publication, Carbon Monoxide, A Silent Killer, available from your local Cooperative Extension Service or online.

Tick-tock: Tips for last-minute shoppers By SARAH SKIDMORE SELL AP Business Writer

PORTLAND, Ore. — The clock is ticking, and your holiday shopping list isn’t complete. Don’t fret — you aren’t alone. The National Retail Federation found that only about half of shoppers had finished shopping as of Dec. 10. That means tens of millions will be ticking those final items off their lists in the coming days. But procrastination doesn’t have to mean desperation. Here are a few tips to help survive last-minute shopping: —SEIZE THE DAY: Retailers know the rush is coming, and they are doing everything they can to attract last-minute shoppers. This includes extended shopping hours, expedited shipping and exclusive promotions. That opens up lots of strategies for shopping that will keep you out of the crazy lines in stores at noon on Christmas Eve. One tactic is to become a night owl. Many retailers are open longer in the week before Christmas. For example, Wal-Mart says its stores are open 24 hours a day up until

8 p.m. on Christmas Eve and it is offering shipping options up until Dec. 23. Toys R Us stores are open around the clock from the morning of Dec. 23 through 9 p.m. Christmas Eve; it also is extending its hours in the days preceding. And many retailers, such as Best Buy, allow shoppers to find an item online and pick it up at a store. Even 7-Eleven is targeting shoppers, offering gift cards, toys and stocking stuffers in its stores. The bottom line: Take advantage of those last-minute discounts and other deals. — DO YOUR HOMEWORK: Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst at market researcher NPD Group, says many people do not yet know what they want to give, or get. “These consumers are the ones who put themselves in a stressful situation,” he said. “The one saving grace is online (shopping) is a chance for a lot of people to do their homework.” He said shoppers can narrow down their options ahead of time by looking online. You can also check Amazon. com to see if the person has a wish list you didn’t know about, or study

Such prep work can save a lot of headaches and potentially limit last-minute impulse purchases that can prove costly. — WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES: Seriously, this is a common-sense step many shoppers skip. “Wear comfortable shoes for goodness sake,” Cohen said. “It (shopping) is exercise and it’s not very comfortable.” Don’t waste time cruising to find the closest spot to the store either, he said. Those comfortable shoes will make it easier to just park and walk.

The Black Friday shopping weekend may be losing its mojo. A survey of shoppers released Nov. 30, by the National Retail Federation shows how early discounting, more online shopping and an improving economy have fewer people shopping on the weekend that kicks off the holiday shopping season.

End of chemotherapy for leukemia rang my bell

M

y Christmas came early. On Friday, I stood at the end of the room where I had taken three-day chemotherapy sessions for the past six months and rang the bell attached to the wall. It’s something of a loud, proud ceremony for cancer patients finishing treatment. The nurses hugged me and wished me continued luck. In easy chairs around the room, patients were still hooked up to their IV bags. Over half a year, I haad seen them come and go, and my comrades had shared good times and bad with me.... As I left for the day, the office staff was equally congratulatory that they wouldn’t have to see me as much – for now. Next, a CT scan will give a clue as to the status of my leukemia, and my doctor will keep me checked out to see what happens. For now, I’m thankful to be in remission, if

not cured. It had been a half-year of surprises. After years of waiting and watching, my oncologist held up the charts one day and said, “Well, you need treatment.” A few months later, he took one look at me and said, “You need blood.” “How do you know?” “You’re white as a ghost.” Someone at work the day before had told me the same thing. Two units of blood later, I was in the pink. Every time the chemicals did things to my body, the doctor and nurses found a way to combat it. My final session was delayed because my platelets had taken a dive, and then the next week, the white cells were down, but the chemo continued. Now I watch and wait again. I will miss those sessions. I’ve told you be-

fore of the caring medical staff and the friendly patients they tended to. We sat in comfortable chairs and received bag after bag of medicine, interspersed with mixers of anti-nausea medication and saline. We had pilGlynn Moore lows and blankets and access to coffee and snacks. Visitors would bring in cupcakes for everyone, and some of the patients wore novelty hats that showed their spirits were not defeated. A box on a table had knitted caps for others who were losing their hair. (I had hoped to lose my hair so it would grow back completely different, as I’ve heard it often does. A thick Kennedy mop would be nice. But mine has thinned only enough to

quested to see them once a year on my son’s birthday, we would meet halfway for a meal to keep the visit short. After they had two children, we were allowed to see them on their birthdays. Gifts were al- Abigail Van Buren ways accepted and we were thanked. As the years passed, we were also allowed some phone calls and Skyping. But now, since his father died last year, my son agrees with his wife that no further contact with me is necessary. I have two questions: First, do I continue to send gifts and cards to them? Second, if the children, now 5 and 7, are no longer allowed to see me, do I change my will? — HEARTBROKEN GRANDMA DEAR HEARTBROKEN GRANDMA: What a sad situation. If your grandchildren are not allowed to see you, then you really will no longer have a relationship. Continue trying to maintain contact, however, and perhaps the situation will improve later. You can do with your assets exactly as you please, but don’t make any snap decisions now.

Commercialization puts Santa atop woman’s naughty list DEAR ABBY: I have decided that when I have kids I don’t want to do the whole “Santa” thing. I’d rather tell them about the real St. Nicholas and what it means to give rather than to receive. Even though I’m not religious, I’ll tell them about the birth of Jesus (even though he wasn’t born in December), and tell them about the winter solstice. After working years of retail, I have seen firsthand what people can be like around the holidays, especially parents buying expensive, high-demand/low-supply things for their kids, and parents who put themselves in debt to make their kids happy. I am saddened by stories of kids writing to Santa and asking him to get their unemployed parents money for food. Most people I have spoken with disagree with my decision. They call me a Scrooge or say I’m “taking my kids’ innocence away.” What do you think? Do you think I’m awful for wanting to teach them about charitable St. Nick, instead of commercializing Santa Claus? — SANTA-LESS IN COLORADO DEAR SANTA-LESS: I agree you should talk to your children about the birth of Jesus, as well as the pagan festivals that Christmas replaced, if you wish. While you’re at it, also stress to them what the spirit of Christmas is supposed to be — even if it seems sometimes lost in the commercialism of the holiday. However, wait until your children ASK you about Santa. When they do, tell them the truth. That way, they will learn that when they ask their mother something, they will always be given an honest answer.

mess up my part, so that’s that.) All this time, my church has stood behind me. I’ve been on prayer lists and the recipient of calls and too many cards to count. My employers took every step to make sure I was able to miss work when I needed to. My wife became my nutritionist and chief cook (she hates to cook). She went to grocery stores, something I do when I can. And when I got down, she gave me dope slaps and told me everything was going to be OK. She hasn’t been wrong yet. And I thank you for all the messages you’ve sent me. When I brought up the subject months ago, I told you chemo doesn’t live up to its scary image anymore, and you see, I was right.

Jaqueline Bigar’s Stars A baby born today has a Sun in Sagittarius if born before 6 p.m. (PST). Afterward, the Sun will be in Capricorn. The Moon will be in Sagittarius until 8:25 p.m. (PST). Afterward, it will be in Capricorn. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014: This year you often go from being adventurous to conservative. Others might be taken aback by this sudden change. If you are single, strap on your seat belt as you climb on the roller coaster of love. It is very likely that you will meet someone who gives you a case of the butterflies. Take your time before making a commitment. If you are attached, your significant other runs with the moment and enjoys your changeability. Plan a very special vacation together, and you will nurture this tie. CAPRICORN frequently rains on your parade. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You’ll give that extra oomph to whatever you do right now. You’ll approach much of what you do with a fresh perspective and renewed enthusiasm. Use the daylight hours to finish up any holiday errands. Make time to visit a friend. Tonight: Till the wee hours. This Week: Give up being so responsible. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH A loved one might be set on monopolizing your plans. The real issue will be figuring out how to let this person down gently. Only you can answer that question. Look at your schedule in the next few weeks to see if you have any free time. Tonight: Try some unusual cuisine. This Week: Concerns about someone at a distance could mar the next few days. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Others seem to jump right in and join you, whether you want the company or not. You will turn this situation into a positive experience with your gregarious personality. Surprises seem to mark your friendships. Tonight: Focus on a loved one. This Week: Make time for a loved one before the festivities begin. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Clear out as much as you can during the daylight hours. Whether you are dropping off cookies at a friend’s house or vice versa, you will feel a sense of accomplishment. Catching up on news might bring some surprises. Tonight: Let the party go on. This Week: Let others have their way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH A child or loved one could invite you to join him or her on an adventure. You might not be able to hold yourself back. This trip will be fun, as long as you can chill out and go with the flow. You might be amused by a friend’s ideas. Tonight: Know when to call it a night.

This Week: Push hard to get through all of your work and errands by Tuesday. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Accept a slower pace in the morning. You’ll need to keep up with the increasingly demanding pace of the next few days. If you don’t have an opening for some personal time, make one. You cannot continue as you have been. Tonight: Find some mistletoe! This Week: Open yourself up to a fun encounter. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Make calls, run errands and clear out as much as you can. Join a friend for a late brunch if possible. This person seems to be more unpredictable than usual, but his or her energy will make you feel alive. Tonight: Put the finishing touches on making your home festive. This Week: Tap into your inner child. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Indulge yourself a little as you finish up your holiday errands. Your shopping might involve buying yourself something each time you buy someone else a gift. Keep your receipts! Nervous energy could be what’s fueling you. Tonight: Get together with friends for dinner. This Week: Touch base with loved ones. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Though you might prefer it to be different, others are likely to take their cues from you. Detach, and just let it be. Your interest could turn elsewhere by midafternoon. You will have an opportunity to run out and finish some holiday errands. Phew! Tonight: Order in. This Week: You enjoy nearly every moment of the next few days. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Use the daylight hours for any key matter that you need to take care of. You can vanish for only so long without getting too much flak from others. By late afternoon, you could find that your family demands your presence. Tonight: Get into the mood of the moment. This Week: Take advantage of the moment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Whether or not you say “yes” to an invitation, you will be surrounded by friends. You won’t be able to resist the appeal of a fun get-together. The unexpected plays an unusual role in your day. By now, you are used to this ongoing roller-coaster ride. Tonight: Out late. This Week: Go over last-minute details, and try to maintain your budget. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You naturally seem to shoulder a lot of responsibilities. It could take you a long time to clear out what you must do today, but eventually you will get where you want to be. Throw yourself into the holiday festivities. It’s time to visit with your friends. Tonight: In the limelight. This Week: Your expectations could cause you a problem.

Resume Tips - Whip Your Resume Into Shape Expert advice on how to do a resume correctly. By Kristina Cowan So you’ve discovered the perfect gig with a higher salary, and you’re bent on shuffling your credentials to the hiring manager immediately, if not sooner. You’ve got the experience, education and skills that make you a star candidate. One hurdle remains: how to do a resume appropriately. Don’t fret-you can soon be on your way to crafting a stellar resume; just use the following key resume tips from career experts Brian Drum and Heather Heath. Drum is president and CEO of New York City-based Drum Associates, Inc., a global executive search firm, and Heath, based in Minneapolis, is practice leader of sales and marketing for Hudson, a recruitment and talent management firm. Expert Resume Tips on How to do a Resume 1. Be accurate and truthful. “A resume should not be embellished or exaggerated-it’s not an exercise in writing a novel. If there’s anything that is not correct or is misstated, it could be a reason for not hiring you,” Drum said. 2. Take two pages for your resume if necessary. Drum said once you have four or five years of experience, it often becomes very difficult to squeeze your career path all onto one page. Heath said she sees two-page resumes “all the time.” Most applicants should avoid three page resumes. Resume Tip for Recent College Graduates: Stick to one page. 3. Use bullets with concise descriptions. Most resumes that use paragraphs aren’t looked at, Drum explained, so it’s best to use bullets, and keep them to a maximum of two lines a piece. 4. In most cases, list experience before education. If you’re a seasoned executive, it’s best to list your work experience first. Resume Tip for Recent College Graduates: Put education up top. 5. Mind your keywords! Both Drum and Heath underscored the importance of including terms to help get your resume picked up through online searches. “We’re seeing more and more systems ranking people’s resumes based on how many keywords are being matched. ... More people are putting more words on their resumes because they understand that tracking systems are keyword-driven,” Heath said. 6. List your contact information, particularly your cell phone number and e-mail address. Heath advises against listing your current work phone number. “I don’t think a potential employer would be impressed that you’re using company resources to find a job,” she said. 7. Use consistent formatting. Use the same size and type of font throughout your resume, such as 12-point Times New Roman. Offsetting your name in a slightly larger font is acceptable. If you cut and paste from various versions of your resume, be sure to align the text and eliminate formatting glitches. 8. Remember to double check your spelling. Heath suggests printing your resume, reading it and proofreading it to catch spelling and grammatical problems. It’s fine to use an automated spell-check, she said, but be wary of such systems introducing errors. 9. Bling on resumes is bad. Steer clear of using lots of large fonts in different colors, and of underscoring and bolding text for extra emphasis. Excessive use of bells and whistles distracts the reader and makes your resume look unprofessional. 10. No headshots, please. Pictures and resumes are like oil and water. If you have the urge, don’t give in. At the end of the day, Heath said, “People need to remember when they’re sending their resume out they’re sending a version of themselves. ... Make it a statement-a strong one.” Kristina Cowan is the senior writer for PayScale.com. She has over 10 years of journalism experience, specializing in education and workforce issues.

Celebrating in Washington, D.C.

Christmas is different now Today, Christmas and other winter holidays are surrounded with special events, and a lot of attention is paid to gift-giving. Stores and advertisers

count on the holiday season to make a lot of money each year. We consumers are bombarded with TV and catalog promotions for everything from toys to fruitcake. But in the early years of the United States, Christmas was a more private, family holiday. People gathered together and perhaps shared a special meal.

Christmas for children In the 1800s at the White House, Christmas preparations were quite simple. Greens such as holly or fir might have decorated the mantelpieces, along with stockings. Some presidents had young children, but others sometimes had grandchildren or extended family

living in the White House along with the first family. For example, the first Christmas party at the White House was given in 1800 for President John Adams’ granddaughter Suzannah, who also lived there. In 1834, President Andrew Jackson planned a big party for children that included dancing, games, dinner and an indoor “snowball fight” with cotton balls! In the mid-1800s, President Andrew Johnson held a party for about 500 children in the East Room. President Theodore Roosevelt invited children to a carnival party in 1903 where they danced, played games and received special treats: ice cream shaped like Santa Claus.

Billy Horschel

Golf can be a frustrating game as golfers contend with strong winds, near-misses and bad bounces. The tough breaks can add up, and in a sport where there is only one winner, losing can wear down a player. But a champion must always be ready for an opportunity. Billy Horschel was ready for his. After several unsuccessful seasons as a professional golfer, something clicked for Billy during the 2013 season when he qualified for the PGA Tour for the third time. In his 61st tournament appearance, Billy got his first tour victory. Then things began to get interesting. In 2014, Billy steadily advanced in the world rankings and had 12 top-25 finishes — and still saved his best for last. He won the final two playoff tournaments of the season, including the Tour Championship, to capture the sport’s FedEx Cup and secure his spot as one of the top golfers in the world.

In 1981, the White House Historical Association started making annual Christmas ornaments. Each one honors one of our presidents. Money earned from sales of the ornaments helps the association preserve historic This ornament rooms at the White from 2008 House and educate honors President the public about the Benjamin Harrison. president’s home. The first ornament, for President George Washington, was shaped like a weathervane from Mount Vernon, his home in Virginia.

People wait outside the White House on New Year’s Day, 1927, to greet the president and first lady.

Greeting the people

Many years ago, New Year’s Day was a bigger holiday than Christmas in Washington, D.C. Summers were very hot in the city, so the social season was during the winter. Presidents John Adams through Calvin Coolidge hosted large public receptions on New Year’s Day. Congressmen, Supreme Court justices and regular people lined up to greet the president and first lady. Preparing for the open house involved decorating, preparing food and many other tasks. After standing and accepting visitors all day, the president and first lady were exhausted.

Pets at Christmas

Most people think of their pets as members of the family. It’s that way for presidents, too. Animals became part of the theme for first lady Laura Bush’s Christmas one year, “All Creatures Great and Small.” President Richard Nixon and his wife, Pat, dressed their dogs up and had photographs taken of them with their own little Christmas tree.

President and Mrs. Clinton’s cat, Socks, poses next to a gingerbread replica of the White House in 1993. The Mini Page thanks William Bushong, chief historian of the White House Historical Association, for help with this issue.

The first Christmas tree in the Blue Room of the White House was placed there by the children of President William Howard Taft. The president and first lady were away from the White House at Christmas in 1909, and their grown children were hosting extended family for the holiday. Mrs. Hoover was the first to have an “official” White House tree, and it became a project for future first ladies. In 1961, Jacqueline Kennedy declared a theme for the public Christmas display for the first time. In 2013, Michelle Obama chose “Gather Around: Stories of the Season” for the theme. Military families made greeting cards depicting their home states to decorate the tree. The tree must not be more than 19 feet tall. Before its arrival, workers have to remove the chandelier in the Blue Room for the tree to stand in the center!

The Mini Page®

Guide to the Constitution The popular nine-part series on the Constitution, written in collaboration with the National Archives, is now packaged as a colorful 32-page softcover book. The series covers: • the preamble, the seven articles and 27 amendments • the “big ideas” of the document • the history of its making and the signers

For 2014, the White House Christmas ornament is a 1920s-era train. It is in two pieces: a locomotive and President Warren G. Harding’s rail car, the Superb. Harding loved trains and as a child hoped to be a train conductor when he grew up. In June 1923, he set out on a “Voyage of Understanding,” crossing the country by train. Along the way he stopped in many cities and towns to meet with Americans. After sailing to Alaska, where he got to drive a train, Harding and his group returned to San Francisco in early August. While there, President Harding died suddenly. The Superb carried his casket back to Washington, D.C.

Funny’s

In 1923, President Coolidge promoted the use of electric power by lighting a tree on the Ellipse, a park just south of the White House. Later, the national tree moved to 1923 National several different Christmas Tree locations near the White House. Today the national tree is not a cut tree; it’s a living, permanent tree on the Ellipse. Each year, the president and his family light the tree, and the president makes a speech.

Mini Jokes

All the following jokes have something in common. Can you guess the common theme or category?

National community tree

Perry: Why was the piano player asked to join the baseball team? Pete: Because he had perfect pitch!

Pageant of Peace The lighting of the national tree marks the beginning of several weeks of programs, musical events and religious celebrations called the Pageant of Peace.

A special guest In 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt held the tree ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill arrived in Washington on Dec. 22 for a meeting with the president and was there on Dec. 24 when the lighting ceremony took place. Along with President Roosevelt, Churchill spoke to the crowd from the South Portico, or porch.

Our National Trees Michelle Obama, along with her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and their dogs, Sunny and Bo, greet the White House Christmas tree for 2013. The tree has been delivered by horse-drawn cart since 1966.

Butternut Squash With Maple Butter You’ll need: • 1 large butternut squash, halved lengthwise • Salt and freshly ground black pepper • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon What to do: 1. Scoop out seeds and stringy stuff from squash halves. Using a sharp knife, score the inside of each half several times. 2. Place the halves in a shallow baking dish, cut side up. Add about 1/4 inch water to the bottom of the baking dish to prevent the skins from burning. 3. Season the insides of the squash with salt and pepper. 4. In a small bowl, whisk together the syrup, sugar, butter and cinnamon. Brush the mixture inside each squash half. 5. Bake for 1 hour or until squash is very soft and tops are browned. Serves 4. You will need an adult’s help with this recipe.

Where will you and your family sleep on Christmas Eve? How will you spend the holiday? If you were a kid living in the White House, your family Christmas would probably involve opening presents in the Yellow Oval Room, then sharing a big turkey dinner. To find out more about White House Christmases through the years, The Mini Page talked with the chief historian at the White House Historical Association.
