In the news Dunleavy replaces resigning human rights commission members JUNEAU — Gov. Mike Dunleavy wants to immediately replace two members of the state human rights commission who announced plans to resign. Commission chairman Brandon Nakasato and vice-chair Freddie Olin IV announced plans to resign May 1. Nakasato said his decision was related to the uproar involving the commission’s executive director, Marti Buscaglia, who last month complained on social media about a “Black Rifles Matter” sticker she saw on a truck in the building’s parking lot and believed to be racist. Buscaglia was suspended for 15 days, starting Monday, and said she’d resign when the suspension is over. Olin said he was resigning for unrelated personal reasons. Dunleavy appointed Cynthia Erickson and A. Debbie Fullenwider to the seats. His office said the appointments were effective Wednesday. Both are subject to legislative approval.

New Mexico climber dies in fall on mountain ANCHORAGE — A New Mexico man died in a fall from a mountain east of Alaska’s largest city. Alaska State Troopers say 25-year-old Daniel Dresher died Wednesday on Goat Mountain near Eklutna Lake. His hometown was not immediately available. Troopers say Dresher’s climbing partner reported he had fallen. The second climber attempted to descend to reach Dresher and lost phone contact. The Alaska Rescue Coordination Center based at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson launched a helicopter and a rescue crew to help search and found the climbers. Troopers say Dresher fell about 500 feet and was killed. The helicopter crew recovered his body. — Associated Press

House passes budget, rejects large cuts By The Associated Press

The Alaska House on Thursday passed a state operating budget rejecting the level of cuts proposed by Gov. Mike Dunleavy, sending it to the Senate for further

work. Cuts were made to areas like the university system, ferry system and Medicaid though lawmakers were told the state has flexibility to make some additional Med-

icaid cuts. Minority House Republicans unsuccessfully sought continued debate on proposed amendments, including some they said dealt with Alaska Permanent Fund divi-

dends. This year’s dividend will be closely watched amid the broader budget debate, with Dunleavy calling for a full payout and lawmakers weighing smaller checks to

afford government services. House Finance Committee Co-chair Neal Foster said the dividend will be dealt with later. House Minority memSee CUTS, page A3

Dinner and a show? Triumvirate serves up a fishing-themed ‘Rocky’ parody By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

Triumvirate Theatre’s annual Dinner Theatre and Art Auction wraps up this weekend with shows on Friday and Saturday night at Mykel’s Restaurant in Soldotna. This year’s show, “Sockeye Balboa,” is a parody on the classic “Rocky” Balboa boxing films that actor Sylvester Stallone made famous throughout the 1970s and ‘80s. “Sockeye” organizer and writer Chris Jenness said that the Triumvirate dinner theater began as a way to help keep the company’s finances afloat through the summer months, when the local theater scene isn’t as hot as the weather. Now in its 14th year, the annual dinner theater is typically the final per-

formance of the spring season (although Jenness noted there are a few more

productions coming soon). The first year Triumvirate put on a dinner theater

routine, Jenness said they raised around $8,000 — to their pleasant surprise.

“We figured out it was a way to get ourselves through the summer, which is always a rough time for theater,” he said. “We thought we should try dinner theater, and it would be funny to do a fishing parody.” Jenness said his wife Carla usually writes out the script, but this year he took over production duties — what with his knowledge of the Rocky films. Jenness said the story line doesn’t follow one Rocky story, but rather ropes in many scenes and themes from all the movies. Piecing together a comedy that injects bits of local and statewide flavor is a task that he enjoys, and the production incorporates jabs at Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget, Soldotna’s annexation plans and a few Nikiski jokes. Jenness said See SHOW, page A2

Residents question mayor’s absence from assembly By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Residents hoping to address Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce about proposed budget cuts were disappointed last week when the mayor failed to show at the April 2 borough assembly meeting. “I wanted to address the mayor,” Casey Eberle from Anchor Point said at the meeting. “He motivated me to be here today.” “I hope the mayor is listening online somewhere,” Matt Fischer, a teacher in the school district for the last 17 years, said at the meeting.

testimony that was heard today,” Bagley said at the meeting. “We sat through it and we’re going to have to make decisions and I really think the mayor should have been here for it. I don’t think you should schedule vacations during budget time.” When asked for comment, the mayor’s office said Pierce would not be in until the week of April 15. Chief of Staff James Baisden said he preferred not to Mayor Charlie Pierce speaks at a Kenai Peninsula Bor- discuss in a public forum ough meeting on Jan. 8.

Former supervisors give different takes on Price By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU — Two former supervisors of Amanda Price, Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s pick to lead the state Department of Public Safety, offered drastically different views Thursday of

her work ethic and whether she should be confirmed for the job. Price was an adviser to former Gov. Bill Walker, and Scott Kendall was a chief of staff to Walker near the end of Price’s tenure. He told a House committee Price suffered from chronic

absenteeism. He said she left when he told her she could resign or be fired. Marcia Davis, who was a deputy chief of staff to Walker, strongly defended Price, painting her as a hardworker who wasn’t tied to a desk. Davis said she had meet-

ings with Price three to four times a week and didn’t observe chronic absenteeism during the two years they worked together. Price is among the Dunleavy appointees whose position is subject to legislative confirmation. The Legislature has yet to meet

in joint session to vote on his picks. Price didn’t attend Thursday’s confirmation hearing. Kendall cast himself as a reluctant witness, having previously said he would be willing to testify without a subpoena if Price waived See PRICE, page A3

Knopp talks budget, House plans Alaska man sentenced

for stealing mammoth tusk

By BRIAN MAZUREK Peninsula Clarion

The Alaska House of Representatives on Thursday passed their version of the state’s budget for fiscal year 2020. The House budget includes a reduction in spending of about $200 million, which is significantly less than the spending cuts of $1.6 billion proposed by Governor Dunleavy. The Clarion spoke with Rep. Gary Knopp, R-Soldotna, after the vote to discuss how the House budget See KNOPP, page A3

ANCHORAGE — An Alaska man who stole a fossilized woolly mammoth tusk and sliced it into pieces for resale will serve nearly three years in federal prison. U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason on Thursday sentenced Martin Elze, 52, to 33 months for the theft of the 5.5 foot tusk from a small Bureau of Land Management museum

in Anchorage. Gleason also ordered Elze to pay $8,385.82 in restitution to the Campbell Creek Science Center. Elze in December pleaded guilty to one count of removal of a paleontological resource. An accomplice, Gary Lynn Boyd, pleaded guilty in January and will be sentenced May 15. The woolly mammoth is Alaska’s official state fossil. The intact tusk was See TUSK, page A3

“I’m not sure if funding to the max will save our school, but it might,” Woodhead said. During his public testimony, George Pierce of Kasilof commended the mayor for his comments. “I applaud Charlie Pierce for standing his ground,” he said. Eberle said he wondered why the mayor was absent from the meeting. “I wonder why the mayor isn’t here today,” Eberle said. “I find that interesting. The mayor’s very bold and proud comments he posted online where he challenged the teachers here — who are getting ready to lose their job, getting ready to have to move — to embrace these cuts … that motivated me to come here.” Bagley said the felt the mayor’s Facebook comments had “probably inflamed the situation just a little bit.” At the end of the public comment period, Carrie Henson of Soldotna encouraged residents to speak up. “Based on the comments I’ve heard tonight of the mayor’s behavior when he speaks with citizens, I think it speaks to the integrity that he has … Our mayor has asked us to stand down, but I say it is our civic duty to do the exact opposite,” Henson said at the meeting.

Assembly member Kelly Cooper encouraged residents to work together. “Regarding the issues that we’re dealing with with the school district

funding and concerns about the borough — I will not stand down,” Cooper said. “I will stand up and I will not allow this division to continue.

up here and speak to the infinite negative ramifications these cuts will impose,’” Summer Birch, a parent from Anchor Point, told the assembly. Many of the speakers were referencing comments that Pierce made in a March 8 Facebook Live video, in which the mayor told residents to “embrace cuts.” “I’ve asked the community of the Kenai Peninsula Borough to embrace these changes, because I believe as a community, if we embrace the changes, accept the fact that we’re going to be a part of the solution to the overall problem in the state of Alaska, we’ll do a better job,” Pierce said in the March 8 video. In the video, Pierce gave a general borough update, the borough’s upcoming comprehensive plan and local budget cuts. Pierce said if the borough funded the school district to the cap, it “wouldn’t make a real big difference.” Conrad Woodhead, principal of Chapman School in Anchor Point, said during the meeting that he disagrees with the mayor’s stance that funding to the cap won’t make any difference.

differs from the governor’s as well as the priority of the House now that the budget has moved to the Senate for discussion. “From day one my priority was getting a budget passed and into the Senate, and today that’s what we did,” Knopp said on Thursday. Knopp said he was happy with the $200 million in cuts, and said that it is a reasonable reduction in spending that maintains important services and leaves room for a respectable payout of the Permanent Fund Dividend. Allocations of funds for the PFD were notably absent from the House’s proposed budget, and Knopp said that moving forward the House finance committee would be looking at the bills the governor has proposed in regards to the PFD. As far as what will happen to the budget once it is in the Senate, Knopp said he only expects minor changes. “We both started from the same place,” said Knopp, referring to the fact that the Senate and the House based their discussions around the FY20 Adjusted Base Budget rather than the governor’s proposed budget. The FY20 Adjusted Base Budget is the budget for the 2019 fiscal year with adjustments made for onetime items, position counts, funding transfers, line item transfers and increases to salaries and benefits. The Senate and the House traditionally use this figure each year as a base, according to the legislative finance division. The governor’s budget took the approach of starting with funding essential services and added funds until the state’s spending matched its revenue. Knopp noted that the House passed their budget just two days later than they did last year, even though it took them 31 days to organize and a elect a Speaker at the beginning of the ses-

sion. Knopp said that, pending any major changes on the Senate side, he doesn’t anticipate going into an extended legislative session. He also didn’t completely rule out the possibility of an extended session. “Anything could happen,” said Knopp. When asked how the budget discussions went in the House, Knopp said that most of the contention centered around the level of cuts for any given program. For example, the Ocean Rangers program has been defunded in the House budget and there is a $10 million decrease to funds for the University of Alaska, and Knopp said that these cuts made some people upset. On the governor’s plan to issue a full PFD, Knopp said he does not support this and pushed back on the definition of “full.” Using the formula that has been used in the past few years to determine the PFD amount, Knopp said that a full PFD is possible, just not the kind that the governor has proposed. The House finance committee traveled around the state to hear the perspectives of Alaskan’s on the budget, and Knopp said that his takeaway was that many Alaskans care deeply about the PFD and education. He also said that people were concerned about how many aspects of the governor’s budget would end up shifting the burden of costs to municipalities. Going forward, Knopp said that the House will now start looking at legislation related to the PFD and criminal justice. When asked if he thinks that SB91 — a controversial crime bill passed by the Legislature last year — would be repealed, Knopp said it is likely that it will be repealed and replaced in some form. Knopp noted that Rep. Matt Claman, DAnchorage, who is the chair of the judiciary committee and a primary author of the original SB91, is open to the idea of improving the legislation. they don’t have the alignment they thought they did. The 24-14 vote to approve the budget proposal broke down along caucus lines. Pruitt criticized the House Majority for not tackling the main topics head-on. “This budget had no plan,” Pruitt said. “Actually, what it seemed like is it seemed like a budget that was designed to keep a budget together (rather) than to actually govern.”

bers criticized the approach of dealing with the PFD later. Minority Leader Lance Pruitt, R-Anchorage, said in a press conference Thursday that the House should be talking about the PFD now instead of saving it for the end. Saving tough issues for the end of session, he said, creates an “artificial harmony” in the Legislature which could lead Juneau Empire reporter to people finding out later that Alex McCarthy contributed.

confidentiality. Price had said he didn’t need her permission to speak. Kendall said Thursday he decided to testify to give lawmakers “the full truth as I know it.” He testified by phone after his predecessor as chief of staff, Jim Whitaker, who said he’d recommend Price for Public Safety commissioner. Kendall said when he took the job he heard complaints about absenteeism by Price from “many staff.” “Sadly to say, it was something of almost a joke among staff. Folks would say, ‘Where’s Amanda?’ ‘Have you checked Nordstrom?’ ‘Where’s Amanda? ‘Have you looked on a milk carton in the fridge?’ That was the tone I walked into, which I found incredibly toxic to staff morale,” Ken-

he said. The stolen tusk was one of several found in the mid1980s near the Colville River, which flows into the Arctic Ocean north of the Brooks Range. The curved tusk was mottled dark- and lightbrown, about 8 inches in diameter on the large end and 6 inches in diameter at the narrow end.

dall said. He said he didn’t know then whether that was true and gave her a chance. “Personally, I witnessed the chronic absenteeism every day. As I say I was in that office or on teleconference meetings from Juneau every day. I never had a day off. I worked all weekends and I literally physically saw her three times. Once I passed her in the hall and the other two times were scheduled meetings with me,” he said. He said at times he had staff check up on her to verify if she was at meetings or events on her calendar, “and on several occasions we received responses such as, ‘We have not seen her in weeks or months.’” He also said allegations of plagiarism were relayed to him. Price has denied plagiarizing anything. Price said Thursday that she listened to the hearing by phone and was surprised by Kendall’s testimony. In an interview, she said

this was the first time she heard allegations of absenteeism from someone with the Walker administration, and “there was no concern ever articulated to me about work performance.” She said she and Kendall didn’t have an opportunity to work closely together, saying they were in different locations. At a hearing last week, Price said she left the Walker administration “because it was clear that it wasn’t working.” She said earlier in that hearing that she and Walker weren’t in lockstep on public safety policy, which caused a rub. She said Kendall asked her how she thought things were going, and she said not well and that she agreed when he said he and Walker felt it was time to part ways.

Kendall said he didn’t get into a substantive discussion with Price on why he had asked her to resign or be fired because he thought it would be painful for her to hear and didn’t think it would be productive. He said he didn’t know what her positions on policy were. He said he “absolutely would not” vote to confirm Price. Price’s resume says she worked as an advocate for victims of sexual violence before joining Walker’s administration in 2015, where she was a senior adviser on crime policy and prevention. Her resume states she left two years later. Davis, who said she left around the time Kendall came on, said Price “was getting the job done.”

What Others Say

Gun laws, here and there FIFTY VICTIMS. Twenty-six days. That — along with common-sense

leadership from government officials — is what it took for New Zealand to pass a law that bans most semiautomatic weapons in the country. The contrast with the United States is both inescapable and striking. Despite the loss of far more lives in far more mass shootings — more than 2,000 mass shootings since the slaughter of elementary school children in Newtown, Conn., in 2012 — Congress has refused to make any significant change in federal gun law, including needed reimposition of the ban on the assault rifles that are often the weapon of choice of mass murderers. “I can recall very vividly the moment I knew that we would need to be here, doing what we are doing right now,” New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Wednesday as Parliament voted to outlaw military-style semiautomatic weapons and assault rifles. Attacks on two mosques in Christchurch by a white nationalist on March 15 had killed 50 people and, she said, “I could not fathom how weapons that could cause such destruction and largescale death could have been obtained legally in this country.” She put a temporary ban in place just days after the terrorist killings. Legislation to make the ban permanent and authorize a buy-back of the banned weapons moved swiftly through Parliament, passing with the support of all but one of the 120 lawmakers. New Zealand’s form of government makes it easier for the ruling party to pass legislation. There also is no constitutional right to own guns as exists in the United States with the Second Amendment. But the most significant difference between the two countries — even as the vast majority of Americans favor sensible gun laws — is the outsize and malign influence of the National Rifle Association. There have been some encouraging signs that the gun lobby’s control over lawmakers may be waning in the face of growing effectiveness of grass-roots movements for gun safety. Hopefully the resolve shown by New Zealand will serve as a model. It is notable, for example, that the government there consulted with the country’s hunting and rural communities about the impact of an assault weapon ban and the general consensus was that military-style weapons were not really necessary. Indeed, even before the ban was enacted, some gun owners surrendered their semiautomatic weapons. Tweeted one farmer: “Until today I was one of the New Zealanders who owned a semi-automatic rifle. On the farm they are a useful tool in some circumstances, but my convenience doesn’t outweigh the risk of misuse. We don’t need these in our country.” — The Washington Post, April 10

Alaska’s fiscal crisis is a mindset Alaska’s fiscal crisis is mostly in the mind and ideology of Gov. Mike Dunleavy and his transplanted cohorts, who appear to be disciples of Ayn Rand. It seems their belief is that the private sector can do no wrong and the more that government does to privatize its fiscal assets (PFD), resource wealth and responsibility to its citizens (API), the better the economy. In turn, we as citizens of the economy will be better off and not need as much government service. If his massive governmental remake creates a situation where the state doesn’t have enough revenue to pay for privatization, the conservative go-to solution is reduction of state-provided services. This is the crux of our current debate. Now, as campaign promises become more clear, true Alaskans (those who care about the welfare of their neighbor as well as themselves) are questioning Dunleavy’s pillars of progress. They acknowledge that government services need better efficiencies, but question whether Dunleavy’s approach is throwing out the baby with the bathwater. Efficiency should not mean without. Rather than seeing our economy as a private sector pogo stick, they recognize that a balanced economy is a stable three-legged stool with healthy private, public and nonprofit sectors. Each of these sectors has unique advantages for serving us and the best balance is a good match between the sectors and our societal needs.

V oices of the

P eninsula G eorge M atz It’s apparent that many of Alaska’s citizens don’t see state government as this evil, ever-spending monster as portrayed by the governor. They realize that the state may be the more appropriate choice to provide some services we seek, or even need. This particularly applies to situations considered to be “market failures” due to lack of economies-of-scale (e.g. rural communities) that are not attractive to private sector investment. Many Alaskans speaking out are acknowledging that these services need to be paid for, at least in part, by the public even if that means more revenues. It’s what’s fair more than an obsession over what is efficient. Gov. Dunleavy’s radical vision of governance may be a catalyst for developing a fiscal consensus that says we are willing to pay for what we get, but we want to be sure we get what we pay for. The pillars of pragmatism for this developing consensus are: 1. Reduced Permanent Fund Dividend — Fiscal austerity facing all state agencies should be shared by PFD payments. 2. Fair Oil Taxes — Oil and gas companies are fastidious about maximizing profit. Why not the state who

initially owns these resources? 3. Progressive Income Tax — A progressive income tax in tandem with the PFD provides fair balance between aiding those financially struggling and applying a “user fee” for state services. It also ensures that nonresident workers pay something for their use of state services and resources. 4. Renewable Resource Management — Most Alaskans make use of our renewable resources for harvesting and/or recreation. Sustainable yield of these resources, as called for by the Alaska Constitution, depends on state agencies having sufficient funding to pay for qualified staff, etc. The Dunleavy budget cuts may be sacrificing its constitutional obligation for sustainable renewable resource management to pay for a higher PFD. Gov. Dunleavy’s proposed budget came out of the chute like a charging bull. But the Legislature has heard the public outcry over drastic budget cuts and some finance subcommittees are not using the governor’s proposed budget for markup. Dunleavy’s budget is the centerpiece for his mindset, and it tripped coming out of the chute. It leaves one wondering what he will do the next three years. George Matz now lives in Homer. He has experience in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. In his career as a state employee he was a budget, policy, and project analyst as well as special assistant to the commissioner.

Alaska continues to lose revenue over its oil tax policy As predictable as Juneau rain, Alaska has an oil tax problem. Almost since the beginning of commercial oil and gas development in Alaska, the state’s oil taxation policy has focused on tax incentives to try to influence oil companies’ investment decisions and increase future resource production and revenue. Past changes in the state’s oil and gas production tax system were necessary because of tax incentives gone wrong. The same is true today. Today’s problem has its roots in a North Slope capital expenditure credit introduced in 2006 that provided oil companies with a 20 percent tax credit for certain expenditures. In 2013, the state found the credit could cost billions in lost revenue without necessarily contributing to future oil and gas production. Through Senate Bill 21, the state repealed the capital expenditure credit and moved to tax incentives based on production rather than investment. To encourage development of “new” oil on the North Slope, the legislation included a gross value reduction where 20-30 percent of new oil production would be tax free, and added a $5 per barrel credit — the more new oil a company produced, the lower its tax obligation. The major North Slope producers wanted a similar incentive as was being provided to new fields to apply to existing oil fields like Prudhoe Bay. SB 21 added a sliding scale credit so for each barrel of oil produced from existing fields, producers qualified for a tax reduction from zero up to $8 per

Sudan’s military overthrows president By MAGGIE MICHAEL and SAMY MAGDY Associated Press

CAIRO — Sudan’s military overthrew President Omar al-Bashir on Thursday after months of bloody protests against his repressive 30-year rule. But prodemocracy demonstrators vowed to keep up their campaign in the streets after the military said it would govern the country for the next two years. Al-Bashir’s fall came a week after Algeria’s longruling, military-backed president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, was driven from power. Together, the developments echoed the Arab Spring uprisings eight years ago that brought down autocrats across the Mideast. The announcement of the arrest and removal of

the 75-year-old al-Bashir was made by a veteran insider in his government, Defense Minister Awad Mohammed Ibn Ouf, who is under U.S. sanctions for links to atrocities in Sudan’s Darfur conflict. Ibn Ouf said a military council that will be formed by the army, intelligence and security apparatus will rule for two years, after which “free and fair elections” will take place. Sudan’s state-run media later said Ibn Ouf was being sworn in as head of the new council. The defense chief also announced that the military had suspended the constitution, dissolved the government, declared a state of emergency for three months, closed the country’s borders and airspace and imposed a curfew.

Protesters who were initially jubilant over word of the coup reacted by saying they will not end their nearly week-long sit-in outside the military’s headquarters in central Khartoum until a civilian transition government is formed.

Well after nightfall, tens of thousands beat drums, sang and chanted slogans against the armed forces and Ibn Ouf. One of the organizations leading the protest said people were staying in streets of defiance of the 10 p.m. curfew.

WikiLeaks’ Assange hauled from embassy

LONDON — British police on Thursday hauled a bearded and shouting Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian Embassy where he was holed up for nearly seven years, and the U.S. charged the WikiLeaks founder with conspiring with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to get their hands on government secrets.

Police arrested Assange after the South American nation revoked the political asylum that had protected him in the embassy, and he was brought before a British court — the first step in an extradition battle that he has vowed to fight. Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno said he decided to evict the 47-yearold Assange from the embassy after “repeated violations to international

conventions and daily-life protocols,” and he later lashed out at him during a speech in Quito, calling the Australian native a “spoiled brat” who treated his hosts with disrespect. In Washington, the U.S. Justice Department accused Assange of conspiring with Manning to break into a classified government computer at the Pentagon. The charge was announced after Assange was taken into custody. Assange took refuge in the embassy in 2012 after he was released on bail in Britain while facing extradition to Sweden on sexual assault allegations that have since been dropped. He refused to leave the embassy, fearing arrest and extradition to the U.S. for publishing classified military and diplomatic cables through WikiLeaks. Manning, who served several years in prison

for leaking troves of classified documents before her sentence was commuted by then-President Barack Obama, is again in custody in Alexandria, Virginia, for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks. Manning’s legal team said the indictment against Assange showed prosecutors didn’t need her testimony and called for her to be released, saying her continued detention would be “purely punitive.”

Ex-Obama WH counsel charged with lying in lobbying probe WASHINGTON — Former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig was indicted Thursday on charges of making false statements and concealing information in a federal foreign lobbying investigation that intersected with the Russia probe. Craig, 74, was charged in a two-count indictment that accuses him of willfully concealing material facts from the Justice Department about work he performed for the Ukrainian government. The indictment, announced by the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, came a day after Craig’s lawyers said he expected to be charged in the probe spun off from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. In a video statement, Craig said the prosecution against him was “unprecedented and unjustified” and that he’s confident a judge and jury would agree. “I did not participate in a scheme to mislead the government or conceal material facts,” he said. His attorneys had called the case a “a misguided abuse of prosecutorial discretion” and said the Justice Department’s national security division pushed to indict Craig despite federal prosecutors in New York declining to bring charges, an assertion that couldn’t immediately be verified. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office declined to comment. Craig’s indictment is part of a Justice Department crackdown on unregistered foreign lobbying and consulting. Federal prosecutors in New York have been investigating two prominent Washington lobbying firms in a similar probe, and Justice Department officials in Washington have been increasingly willing to prosecute people who they believe intentionally conceal their lobbying work from the government. The scrutiny of Craig stems from an investigation of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his work on behalf of a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine. The charges come about three months after Craig’s former law firm agreed to pay more than $4.6 million and publicly acknowledge that it failed to register with the government for its work for the Ukraine. The civil settlement with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP laid much of the blame for the firm’s conduct on Craig, who was a senior partner. — The Associated Press

On this date: In 1776, North Carolina’s Fourth Provincial Congress authorized the colony’s delegates to the Continental Congress to support independence from Britain. In 1861, the Civil War began as Confederate forces opened fire on Fort Sumter in South Carolina. In 1862, Union volunteers stole a Confederate locomotive near Marietta, Georgia, and headed toward Chattanooga, Tennessee, on a mission to sabotage as much of the rail line as they could; the raiders were caught. In 1877, the catcher’s mask was first used in a baseball game by James Tyng of Harvard in a game against the Lynn Live Oaks. In 1934, “Tender Is the Night,” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, was first published in book form after being serialized in Scribner’s Magazine. In 1955, the Salk vaccine against polio was declared safe and effective. In 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man to fly in space, orbiting the earth once before making a safe landing. In 1963, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested and jailed in Birmingham, Alabama, charged with contempt of court and parading without a permit. (During his time behind bars, King wrote his “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”) In 1988, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a patent to Harvard University for a genetically engineered mouse, the first time a patent was granted for an animal life form. In 1989, former boxing champion Sugar Ray Robinson died in Culver City, California, at age 67; radical activist Abbie Hoffman was found dead at his home in New Hope, Pennsylvania, at age 52. In 1990, in its first meeting, East Germany’s first democratically elected parliament acknowledged responsibility for the Nazi Holocaust, and asked the forgiveness of Jews and others who had suffered. In 2006, jurors in the Zacarias Moussaoui (zak-uh-REE’-uhs moo-SOW’-ee) trial listened to a recording of shouts and cries in the cockpit as desperate passengers twice charged hijackers during the final half hour of doomed United Flight 93 on 9/11. Ten years ago: American cargo ship captain Richard Phillips was rescued from Somali pirates by U.S. Navy snipers who shot and killed three of the hostage-takers. Angel Cabrera became the first Argentine to win the Masters. Actress Marilyn Chambers, who’d starred in the 1972 adult film “Behind the Green Door,” was found dead at her home in Canyon Country, California, 10 days before her 57th birthday. Five years ago: The policy-setting panel of the 188-nation International Monetary Fund concluded a meeting in Washington by expressing confidence that the global economy finally had turned the corner to stronger growth. Devastating wildfires erupted in the hills of Valparaiso, Chile, killing 15 people and destroying nearly 3,000 homes. One year ago: Police in Philadelphia arrested two black men at a Starbucks; the men had been asked to leave after one of them was denied access to the restroom. (Starbucks apologized and, weeks later, closed thousands of stores for part of the day to conduct anti-bias training.) Carl Ferrer, the chief executive of Backpage.com, which authorities described as an “online brothel,” pleaded guilty to California and federal charges including conspiracy and money laundering, and agreed to testify against others at the website. Schoolteachers in Oklahoma ended two weeks of walkouts, shifting their focus to electing pro-education candidates. The Screen Actors Guild issued new guidelines calling for an end to auditions and professional meetings in private hotel rooms and residences in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.” -- Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945).

The wisdom of shepherds

V oices of F aith R ick C upp

I’ll admit it: I’m a city boy. Milk isn’t squeezed; it’s poured out of plastic containers. My portion of cow fits on a plate and never says moo and never gets out of the gate. But I’ve been trying to read from some shepherds to find out about sheep and to better understand the 23rd Psalm, written by David in the Bible. It’s the beloved Psalm that begins

“The Lord is my Shepherd” and has the line “He makes me lie down in green pastures.” Understanding sheep will help us understand ourselves. If they can lie down in peace and contentment, maybe we can too. Phillip Keller, in his great book, “A Shepherd Looks At Psalm 23,” helps us understand. He notes that sheep aren’t very good at lying down. They are spooked by the slightest noise and smallest animal. He tells of a friend’s Pekingese jumping from the car and send-

ing 200 of his sheep running in a panic through the fields. Then he tells us that a good shepherd will provide four freedoms that ensure peace and contentment. The first of those is freedom from fear. Keller, a dog lover, nonetheless made sure that his friends never again brought a dog to his ranch. And when a cougar showed up and killed some lambs early in his career he learned to sleep with a rifle and flashlight by his bed and to run to his flock at the slightest noise. The second is freedom

from tension. Sheep compete and develop a pecking order, though in sheep it’s called a “butting order.” A good shepherd will protect the weaker sheep and make sure they are provided for. The third is freedom from aggravations, which in his area were flies and ticks, and the fourth is freedom from hunger, which meant considerable work on his part to grow grass in the summer and provide hay in the winter. Of interest to me is the common denominator in all four freedoms. They each require the hard work, vigi-

lance, and presence of the shepherd. That brings us back to our lives. It is easy for people to be like sheep. We worry. We compete and constantly compare how well we’re doing with everyone else. We get bugged by little things and hunger for more, even when we have all we need. Peace is great but elusive. David’s answer was finding someone who truly cared for him. He found someone who could be counted on to be there at all times, even when cougars roamed the fields.

Such friends are priceless. I hope you have at least one friend closer than family that you can depend on when peace flies out of the window and sleep won’t come. But David suggests that the best such friend is God. Have you sought him out? Maybe it’s time to lie down in green pastures. Rick Cupp is minister at Kenai Fellowship.

Pope kisses feet of South Sudan’s leaders to encourage peace VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis knelt and kissed the feet of South Sudan’s rival leaders Thursday, in an unprecedented act of humbleness to encourage them to strengthen the African country’s faltering peace process. At the close a two-day retreat in the Vatican for the African leaders, the pope asked South Sudan’s president and opposition leader to proceed with the peace agreement despite growing difficulties. Then he got down on his knees and kissed the leaders’ feet one by one. The pope usually holds a ritual washing of the feet with prisoners on Holy Thursday, but has never performed such a show of deference to political leaders. “I express my heartfelt hope that hostilities will finally cease, that the armistice will be respected, that political and ethnic divisions will be surmounted, and that there will be a lasting peace for the common good of all those citizens who dream of beginning to build the nation,” the pope said of South Sudan in his closing statement. The spiritual retreat brought together President Salva Kiir and opposition head Riek Machar. Also present were Kiir’s three vice presidents. The pope kissed the feet of all of them. South Sudanese Vice President Rebecca Nyandeng Garang said Francis’ actions moved her profoundly. “I had never seen anything like that. Tears were flowing from my eyes,” she said. South Sudan, gained independence from Sudan in 2011 and in 2013, the country plunged into a bloody civil war, which left at least 400,000 people dead. The two-day Vatican meeting was held a month before the end of the shaky peace deal’s pre-transition period. On May 12th, opposition leader Machar is expected to return to South Sudan and once again serve as Kiir’s deputy. However, the agreement, which was signed in September in Khartoum, the capital of neighboring Sudan, has been met with delays, missed deadlines and continued fighting with key aspects still not implemented. A military coup in Sudan on Thursday fueled worries in South Sudan that the toppling of longtime President Omar al-Bashir could derail the already fragile peace deal. “Sudan has helped us with the peace deal. We hope that the new system will also focus on the agreement, ensuring that it will be implemented,” said opposition leader Machar, who attended an evening prayer vigil for peace, held at Rome’s church of Santa Maria in Trastevere. —The Associated Press

Sister school experience


s I write this column, I’m drowning in stories of Legislature budgets, potential school closures and some guy stealing a mammoth tusk in Anchorage. There’s a lot going on in Alaska right now. So much, in fact, that I haven’t had time to prepare for my upcoming trip to Scammon Bay. Where’s Scammon Bay? I asked the same thing back in February when I decided to follow along a class from East Anchorage High School as they traveled to rural Alaska as part of the Alaska Humanities Forum Sister School Exchange. The Alaska Sister School Exchange is a program unlike any other in the United States. Schools in urban Alaska — typically Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau — travel to a school in the state’s most rural villages. Urban students get a taste of what life is like when you live in a community only accessible by boat and plane. The rural students get the opportunity to stay in urban areas as well, learning what life is like in Alaska’s more populated areas. Only in Alaska, where communities are separated by hundreds of miles, mountain ranges and bodies of water, could such an exchange program exist. I participated in the Sister School Exchange program when I was a junior at West Anchorage High School. Back then, it was called the Rose Urban Rural Exchange Program. My math teacher and four of my West High peers traveled to New Stuyahok, a Yupik village in western Alaska. In my week along the Nushagak River, I befriended the students of New Stuyahok. They taught me how to dance, skin a beaver, check the animal traps, speak Yupik and stay warm on the back of a snowmachine in harsh February temperatures. The elders of New Stuyahok, who didn’t speak a word of English, taught me how to make an ulu knife from scratch. Today it sits on my parents’ mantle in downtown Anchorage. A homage to my in-state cultural exchange. When Mathias, my New Stuyahok host brother, came to Anchorage to stay with us, my family and I’s education on the traditions of Native Alaska continued. He liked that we lived near the mall, and was grateful for a trip to McDonald’s, a special Anchorage treat. I saw Mathias in downtown Anchorage not too long ago. He was in town for a medical procedure. We still keep in touch through Facebook. Our lives are perhaps even more different now than when we were 16. Now, I get to follow along with a group of East High teenagers as they experience life in rural Alaska, thanks to a fellowship I was awarded in January. I was chosen as the second-ever Education Week Gregory M. Chronister Journalism Fellow, which is a See OUT, page A9



Kenai soccer sweeps Nikiski By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

The Kenai Central soccer teams picked up a pair of conference wins to sweep Nikiski on Thursday afternoon at home, but the real show was the goalkeeping clinics put on by Nikiski. The Kenai girls (1-1 overall) pulled out a 3-0 Peninsula Conference win, while the Kenai boys (12) pulled away late to score a 4-1 conference win over Nikiski at a gusty Ed Hollier Field in Kenai. But it was both Nikiski goaltenders that put on a show for the crowd. In the girls game, Abby Bystedt held strong, allowing just one goal in the first hour of the game before letting two slip by in the late going. The boys game was even more unpredictable as a 1-1 halftime score left the Bulldogs playing spoiler for much of the game, thanks to the stellar play by netminder Michael Eiter. “Kenai’s always been a team that’s untouchable,” said head coach Harrison Deveer. “But I think this is the year where Nikiski gets its name out there.” Eiter sparkled in goal, even while allowing three goals, by making save after save against a relentless Kenai attack. Eiter faced a total of 16 shots on goal, while Nikiski’s offense scrounged up five total. “He’s amazing,” Deveer said. “We just had some silly mistakes in our defense, letting somebody scoop right in and score.” Kardinals sophomore striker Leif Lofquist turned the tide for Kenai with the tiebreaking goal in the 49th minute in the second half. Lofquist rounded up a loose ball that had bounced off Eiter and put in the easy rebound goal for a 2-1 lead. Lofquist later scored in the 72nd minute to finish with two goals on the night. Kenai also got scores from Travis Verkuilen in the 12th minute and Damien Redder in the 51st. Kenai head coach Shane Lopez said the close game against their conference foes left them with things to fix, but also confidence in securing the first win of the season for the defending Division II state

champions. Kenai last week lost to a Division I West Anchorage program. “It’s nice to get the ones (against) Anchorage and DI schools, but those are hard to come by,” Lopez said. “Maybe a little bit of goal hangover. It’s still early in the year, and for the younger guys it’s easy to lose that focus, but they brought it back.” Verkuilen’s goal on a goal box scramble put Kenai ahead 1-0, but the lead lasted barely a minute as Gavin White knotted it up for Nikiski with a clear shot by Kenai goalie Braedon Pitsch from the right flank. The tie lasted to halftime, and Deveer said he was pressing Eiter to pick up the defensive attack in the goal box. “Eiter needs to be more aggressive,” Deveer said. “All the goals scored on him were balls right in the box, where he was expecting his defenders to clear it, and they didn’t and somebody came in and finished it.” On Kenai’s side, Lopez praised the efforts of striker Tomas LevyCanedo, who nearly notched his first goal of the year in the second half on a missed opportunity, and senior Damien Redder and Tucker Vann for keeping the spirits up of the team. In the girls game, Olivia Brewer broke open a tight contest with two second-half goals for the Kardinals in the team’s 3-0 win. “My team is developing really good and it’s super exciting,” Brewer said. Kenai goalie Kailey Hamilton earned the shutout in net for the Kards. While Brewer shined on offense, Abby Bystedt held strong in net for the Bulldogs with a display of saves. Kenai put nine shots on goal in all. “(Nikiski) never lets down, so you’re going to earn what you get,” Kenai girls coach Dan Verkuilen said. Nikiski head coach Linda Zimmerman credited Bystedt’s night for keeping the Bulldogs in the game and giving them a chance. “A good keeper is worth their weight in gold,” said girls coach Linda Zimmerman. “We’re just so

fortunate to have her.” Zimmerman also credited the defense of Sammy Napoka in holding the back line steady. Taylor Pierce scored 22 minutes into the first half to get Kenai on the board. Pierce collected a pass through the center and delivered a strike too quick for Bystedt to handle, putting Kenai up 1-0. Prior to that, Bystedt slapped away two golden opportunities on a four-man rush by Kenai in the 13th minute to keep the game scoreless. Bystedt kept up the work in the second half, collapsing on a ball in the 60th minute after both Julia Hanson and Brewer got chances in the goal box. Brewer said the wind created challenging conditions for both teams as gusts blew across the field from the far side. “Corner kicks were super hard,” she said. “We came together and did a good job even though the wind was carrying the ball in different directions.” Verkuilen praised Brewer on the

sidelines to help create pressure up front, which helped Bethany Morris to be more effective on the wing, and added that notching the early season conference wins will help the team later in the season. “The conference games are must wins, so it’s always nice to get that,” he said. Homer girls 4, North Pole 0 The host Mariners moved to 1-0-1 overall with a nonconference victory over the Patriots. A pair of freshmen led the way for the Mariners, with Sela Weisser and Kappa Reutov each notching two goals and an assist. Eve Brau also had two assists for Homer, which led 2-0 at the half. Ali McCarron posted the shutout in net for Homer.

Colony softball powers past Homer Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The Colony softball defeated Homer 16-5 in four innings of nonconference action Thursday in Kenai. The Mariners are now

4-4 overall. The Knights led 3-2 after an inning, 6-3 after two innings, 8-3 after three innings and put matters to rest with an 8-2 advantage in the fourth inning. Annalynn Brown pitched 3

2-3 innings for Homer, giving up 16 runs on eight hits. Only five of those runs were earned, while Brown also walked nine and struck out six. Zoe Adkins also recorded an out for Homer on a strikeout.

At the plate, the Mariners were able to pound out 10 hits. Grace Godfrey was 3 for 3 with two runs, Brown had two runs, Kaitlyn Johnson was 2 for 2 with three RBIs and Hannah Hatfield was 2 for 3.

Winter stonefly season on the Kenai


f you spend any time near the Kenai River in Soldotna from March to May you may have noticed elongate, roughly one-thirdinch long, dark stoneflies emerging from the river. These are winter stoneflies, also called snowflies. Winter stoneflies are so named because they are among the earliest insects to emerge from cold streams, often appearing on ice and snow on the river before the ice breaks up. Their dark pigment helps them warm

R efuge N otebook M att B owser up on cold days by absorbing sunlight. In our area they continue to emerge well into May. If you walk down to the water’s edge and do not see stoneflies, be still for a little while. You will notice more if you stop for a moment. If

this does not work, try flipping over a few stones just above the water’s edge. Stoneflies, which are not true flies, can be recognized by their wings that fold flat over their backs and their two tails. In contrast, mayflies, another group of winged aquatic insects, hold their wings vertically and have three tails. Several species of winter stoneflies can be found on the Kenai Peninsula, but the species I have been seeing in the Kenai River at

Soldotna and in the lower Kasilof River is the Columbian snowfly, Utacapnia columbiana. It has also been collected at Deep Creek and likely lives in many of the colder streams on the Kenai Peninsula. Common in much of Alaska, the Columbian snowfly ranges east to Alberta and south as far as Montana. In the southern parts of its range this species is rare, living only in cold mountain streams. See FLY, page A9

The Education Week organization chose my project, which is highlighting several points of interest in rural education, including the issue of teacher retention, incorporating native foods in rural schools, rural school infrastructure issues and the Sister School Exchange program. The series will be published in both the Education Week newspaper and the Peninsula Clarion. Monday morning, five East High students, an East High math teacher, an Education Week videographer and I will be traveling to Scammon Bay, a Yupik community in western Alaska’s Yukon Delta. The village is nestled in a bay near Hooper Bay and Chevak. A sparse Wikipedia page will tell you the community is home to just under 500 people and the village’s name comes from Charles Melville Scammon, the chief of marine for William Healey Dall’s Western Union Telegraph Expedition of 1870. The page also describes a local delicacy, also called “scammon” — a mixture of scrambled eggs and salmon. Many of the students from East High will be traveling to rural Alaska for the first time. I’m eager to follow along with the students’ experience. Luckily, I have the weekend to prepare for the trip. I’ll need to focus on finding my sleeping bag, packing enough nonperishable food to last me for the week I’m there, packing enough suitable rain gear and making sure my recorders and cameras are fully charged. Off-road Alaska, here I come!

After the half, the Mariners continued to control the contest. Eyoab Knapp scored on an assist from Reutov, Dexter Lowe scored on an assist from Knapp, Reutov scored on an assist from Knapp and Austin Shafford scored unassisted to complete the scoring. Tucker Weston had the shutout in net.

The life history of our Columbian snowfly has not been studied, but it likely has a one-year life cycle as with other winter stoneflies that we know a little more about. After the adults lay eggs and die, the eggs hatch and the nymphs grow through the summer and fall, maturing and hatching again as adults in late winter to spring. In this one-year life cycle the entire population is synchronized, all of them at close to the same stage of life at any time. Fly fishermen, who tend to be observant of goings-on in the rivers, have observed

that trout overwintering in streams where snowflies occur will cue in on hatches of winter stoneflies during a time of year when most other insects are not available. People do tie and have had success with snowfly flies when the insects are hatching, especially on warm, sunny afternoons in the late winter to spring when trout may begin to be more active. Fly patterns based on the winter stonefly nymphs can also be effective during winter. Columbian snowfly nymphs appear to be one of the more abundant invertebrates found under rocks in shallow water in the Kenai River. Interestingly, despite being one of the most common aquatic insects in our area, no one has investigated

the biology of this species. Based on what we know about other species of winter snowflies, we can make a good educated guess that Columbian snowfly nymphs shred and consume dead leaves and other decaying plant material in the Kenai River. We can also guess that small fish feed on the nymphs. We know that winter stoneflies can be an important food item for young coho salmon at certain places and times of year. King salmon, which generally spend their first year of life in the river, likely eat at least some winter stoneflies. Adult stoneflies generally do not eat at all. Their only purpose during their short existence as winged adults is to mate and disperse. This

may seem like a futile existence, but for the situation of an aquatic insect like our winter stoneflies this role is of vital importance. From the perspective of tiny aquatic insects, they live in an isolated suitable habitat surrounded by a vast expanse of inhospitable dry land. If the pond or stream in which they live dries up or becomes less suitable for any reason, they need to get to an appropriate water body. For aquatic insects in flowing streams like the Kenai, at least some adults

Drunk friend spills the beans on cause of parents’ separation chapter, were having problems before the affair began. What is important now is that your family is back together. My advice is to allow them their privacy. However, if you feel you cannot do that, then tell them TOGETHER what your sister’s Abigail Van Buren friend told you. DEAR ABBY: I was wondering what the rule of etiquette is when it comes to unwanted children’s gifts. It’s one thing if my husband and I receive gifts we don’t want and get rid of them, but I’m not sure what to do with gifts for our kids. We live in a small apartment and sometimes get large-ticket items we don’t have room for. We’ve asked our family to keep the items small, but some of them ignore our request. A few times we’ve sold the items and put the money into our child’s bank account. But we aren’t sure that is the best way. Also, what do we do when family sends our children stuff we don’t want them to have? Some may be inappropriate, broken or junk. My in-laws have little to no interaction with our kids, and this is the only way they’ve chosen to

make their presence known. We are reluctant to discard the only attention our kids get from their grandparents. What is the right thing to do? -- NO MORE GIFTS IN CALIFORNIA DEAR NO MORE GIFTS: Because you have made your wishes known to the grandparents and they are ignored, you and your children should thank them for their gifts -and you should continue repurposing items that are too large for your dwelling or unusable. Do not feel guilty for doing so because someone else may be better able to put them to use. DEAR ABBY: I recently played both sides during a sticky and challenging time. Now I have a friend who is really upset with me, and I don’t know what to do. I thought I was doing the right thing, but in my effort to not hurt my friend, I have done more damage. I’m not sure this can be repaired. What should I do? -- MESSED UP IN MINNEAPOLIS DEAR MESSED UP: Apologize to your friend. And if the friendship cannot be repaired, LEARN from it. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Hints from Heloise

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, April 12, 2019: This year, opportunities head your way. You’ll know which one you want to jump on. If single, you’ll approach a new person with enthusiasm. Make sure that you enjoy the type of relationship the two of you create. If you’re attached, you and your partner’s bond creates a lot of vitality and strength. When you have a CANCER around you, life becomes more exciting. 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) HHH When dealing with a family member or friend, remember your priorities. You probably need to emphasize your personal and family values. A boss or authority figure might challenge you and make demands. If possible, postpone handling requests. Prepare to revamp your schedule. Tonight: At home. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Stay on top of calls and information coming in. Changes could be happening relatively quickly. Don’t underestimate the importance of being flexible and not staying stuck on a specific topic for too long. Be willing to break past restrictions. Tonight: At a favored haunt. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Because life seems to be streaming out of control, you might be more possessive than you usually are. You’re once more reminded that no one can control you but you. Don’t get stuck in a power play or control game. Be willing to break the pattern. Tonight: Treat a friend to TGIF. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You might be unusually emotional, but know that you’ll clear any obstacles you come across. Remain lighthearted and willing to stay more in contact with a dedicated but difficult partner. You might see this person change because of your approach. Tonight: With a favorite person. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH If you feel a little off, like you need some extra personal time, take it. If you must work, you might want to make today a half day. Everyone gets tired, and you push yourself hard, often too hard. If you slow down more often, your productivity will increase. Tonight: As you want. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH A partner feels more connected to you than you realize. Sometimes, this


By Leigh Rubin

person’s coldness and comments come from vulnerability. At first, you might have a hard time reading through this hostility. You also might consider different ways of approaching the issue. Tonight: Be more upbeat. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Whether or not you want to deal with a problem, tension builds. You might be wise to clear out any excess stress through a way that is effective just for you. Either way, you could find yourself in a difficult conversation. Tonight: If you want to, head home early. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Keep reaching out for someone at a distance. To encourage the other party to be more responsive, you might want to back off a little. If you really want greater give-and-take in a relationship, you’ll open up conversations with that quality. Tonight: Hang at a favorite haunt. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might need to play a situation differently. You see a personal matter in an unusual light. Examine what’s happening around you. A different or uncommon approach, as suggested by a partner or close friend, might be right. Tonight: Go for it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH You could be tired of dealing with a highly volatile associate and a touchy roommate or family member. Let go of a problem before it becomes even larger. Examine new possibilities. Let go of the unstoppable. Tonight: Let it all hang out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Confusion could be the outcome of trying to interact and understand what others want. Don’t take anyone’s ideas or suggestions personally, even if they’re meant to be taken that way. Today, ignoring remarks of this nature might be smart. Tonight: Meet up with a friend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You could go through a hassle. You probably learned a lot about the people involved. For a while, you might be thinking about this situation as well as a specific group of associates. Share your feelings. Tonight: Use your imagination. BORN TODAY Singer/songwriter Vince Gill (1957), talkshow host David Letterman (1947), actor Andy Garcia (1956)


A MESSY DRIVE Dear Heloise: We travel with two young children who get bored if they don’t have a few toys to play with. However, our car looks so messy, with toys scattered everywhere. Help! -- Sherri W., Ann Arbor, Mich. Sherri, hang a shoe storage bag over the passenger seat, and in the compartments for shoes, put toys they can play with. At the end of the day, put them away again in the compartments. -- Heloise CHARITY CHECKS Dear Heloise: At my father’s request, we asked people who attended his funeral to make a donation to a charity of their choice. Unfortunately, several of the checks were made out to charities but mailed to us. Some of the checks went back to the giver because we couldn’t find a mailing address for that particular charity. If people want to give to a charity, they should mail it directly to the charity and let the family know that a donation was made in the name of the deceased. Do not mail the checks to the family of the deceased. -- Kailey S., Malden, Ind. JEWELRY HINT Dear Heloise: Please remind readers to occasionally check the prongs on their rings. I have a beautiful 2 1/2 carat diamond that I could have lost if I had not examined my ring. A prong had broken off, and two prongs were turned sideways. If my diamond had fallen out, I’d be in tears. This caused me to examine the rest of my jewelry, and I found a pearl necklace that needed to be restrung. -- Claudia M., Myrtle Beach, S.C.

DEAR ABBY: My parents were separated for four years while I was in high school and college. It was an incredibly difficult time, and it strained my relationship with my dad. I was told they had “grown apart” but got back together, although we never discuss the reason for it. I was out with my sister’s friends last night, and one of them got drunk and told me the reason my parents split up was Dad had been seeing another woman and accidentally texted my sister instead of this other woman, and everyone in my family knew about it! Dad and I barely saw each other or spoke about the separation, and we are finally in a good place. I’m hurt that he intentionally did something that broke up my family. It wasn’t something that just happened because they drifted apart. I don’t want to ask my sister and bring up painful memories for her. My parents have never talked about their separation since they got back together. What should I do? -- MIXED-UP DAUGHTER IN WISCONSIN DEAR DAUGHTER: When infidelity happens there is usually a reason, and those reasons can vary from couple to couple. It’s possible that your parents, who understandably don’t want to relive that painful
