In the news Over $6.2M in unpaid traffic fines are owed to Anchorage ANCHORAGE — Scofflaws owe the city of Anchorage more than $6.2 million in unpaid traffic fines, city officials said. More than 3,000 drivers are on the city’s list of scofflaws. That’s anyone whose delinquent moving violation fines exceed $1,000, KTUU reported. “If you look through the list, it’s just frankly ridiculous,” Lt. Richard Henning told the Anchorage TV station. “People need to take responsibility for what they are doing.” Assistant municipal attorney Pamela Weiss said the list doesn’t just reflect the amount of tickets received. “It means they’ve received $1,000 (in tickets), been found guilty of the offenses and then have not paid it so they are delinquent,” Weiss said. “They are past due.” Scofflaws risk having their vehicles impounded if they come into contact with police or are pulled over for other violations. Among the top 50 violators in Anchorage, one man on the scofflaw list has 77 outstanding tickets. Everyone in the top 50 has at least 25 unpaid tickets. Three people owe more than $10,000 each. The scofflaw law was implemented statewide in 2007 by then-Gov. Sarah Palin, who was later the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate. The scofflaw law was adopted in Anchorage in 2007. Henning said the purpose of the law is to get dangerous drivers off the road. “They should take responsibility for their actions and pay their tickets so they are not on the scofflaw list anymore, and they shouldn’t drive,” he said. Some of the money owed is collected through bank sweeps and Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend garnishments. Impounds may provide additional incentive. Police have had about 430 vehicles towed this year, according to Henning. Last year, nearly 1,200 vehicles were towed under the scofflaw law. Weiss said about $6 million is owed in any given year, and it remains fairly consistent at about 3,000 offenders. — Associated Press

PFD debate looms over Senate By ALEX MCCARTHY Juneau Empire
During the Alaska House of Representatives budget process, the issue of how the Permanent Fund Dividend fits into the budget hung over legislators like a raincloud threatening to burst. During the Senate’s budget process, the downpour might begin. On Thursday, the House passed its operating budget, featuring about $250 million in cuts but not including any decision about whether the PFD should be used to pay for state government again. According to Senate leaders, the Senate will at least take a shot at figuring out how much the state can afford to pay its residents the annual oil wealth check payout and how much should pay for government services. Senate Majority Leader Mia Costello, R-Anchorage, said she was disappointed in the House’s lack of action on addressing the PFD and said the Senate is looking to place

The state Board of Fisheries is at the center of two controversies that have brought the attention of fishermen’s associations and a local representative. Kenai Peninsula Fishermen’s Association has called an action alert opposing Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s recent nomination of Judge Karl Johnstone to the seven-member board. Johnstone is a former Superior Court judge and has served as the chair of the Board of Fisheries. The fishermen’s association expressed concern over how Johnstone’s nomination would effect the ratio of sportfishing seats to commercial seats. “The Board of Fisheries is set to be stacked with a ratio of five sport seats and only two commercial fisheries seats,” the association said in a release. “… Karl’s appointment will upset the delicate balance on the (Board of Fisheries) and swings it too far towards sportfish.” On the opposite side, the Kenai River Sportsfishing Association is rallying behind Johnstone. “He was praised by his colleagues on the Board for being approachable, thorough, and interested in feedback and opinions — the type of person Alaskans want representing them on the Board of Fisheries,” the sportsfishing association said in a release. “We need your voice to help to confirm Karl Johnstone, and all the nominees, to the Board of Fisheries.” If confirmed by a majority of legislators, board

conversations about the PFD among its top priorities during the budget process. “It looks like the House put the dividend last, it’s their last priority by not funding
(the PFD),” Costello said in an interview Friday, “and the governor has placed the dividend first. The Senate will prioritize the dividend along with public safety and health
care and transportation and these important state priorities.” Gov. Mike Dunleavy campaigned on the promise See PFD, page A2
Kids rally at Capitol for school funding By ALEX MCCARTHY Juneau Empire
Katie McKenna stood on the steps of the Alaska State Capitol and spoke forcefully into the microphone. She wanted to make sure Gov. Mike Dunleavy heard her. “Your budget plan abandons us,” the JuneauDouglas High School junior said, pausing as a crowd of more than 400 people applauded. “My generation wants to know, do you have children? Are you OK with how you’re valuing young people across Alaska? We students feel you view us as a writeoff cost.” McKenna was one of nearly a dozen speakers who stood in the Saturday sunlight and urged those in the Capitol to prioritize education. The rally, called Fund Our Future, brought together hundreds

White House: Migrants to sanctuary cities not a top choice By COLLEEN LONG Associated Press
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump wants to explore a twice-rejected proposal to send migrants to “sanctuary cities,” but that is not the preferred solution to fix the straining immigration system, the White House said Sunday. Press secretary Sarah Sanders said it was one of many options, though she
hoped Congress would work with the president on a comprehensive immigration overhaul. The Trump administration is dealing with an ever-increasing number of Central American migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, an influx that has pushed the immigration system to the breaking point. Laws make it hard to quickly return Central
Americans, and many of them spend years in the U.S. waiting for their immigration cases to play out. Others claim asylum and wait just as long, living and working in the U.S. as they wait. “Sanctuary cities” are mostly left-leaning places such as New York City and San Francisco where laws prohibit local police and correction officers from working with immigration
Borough to vote on school district supplemental funding ordinance By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion
An ordinance that may help retain some of the district’s non-tenured teachers will be voted on at Tuesday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting. The ordinance would appropriate $2,423,955 for the school district’s fiscal year 2019 budget. After the joint assembly and school board meeting on March 5, Superintendent Sean Dusek submitted a let-
ter to the assembly asking to fund the school district for 2019. The maximum amount allowable at this time is $2,423,955. Public comment on the ordinance was taken on April 2, since Tuesday’s meeting will be held in Seward. Residents will have the opportunity to provide more public comment, either in person at the meeting in Seward, or through teleconference sites established at the borough’s assembly chambers
in Soldotna and in Homer. “During that work session the school district provided information supporting its need for maximum funding from the borough for the FY 2019 budget based on proposals to significantly reduce state funding for education in both FY 2019 and FY 2020, as well as other state cuts in funding,” according to a memo from assembly members Willy Dunne and Hal Smalley, the ordinance See SCHOOL, page A3
officials to help arrest and deport people living here illegally. Trump seized on reports last week of the proposal that sought to send migrants already detained to Democratic locations or transport migrants that have just crossed the U.S.Mexico border to sanctuary cities. Sanders said the idea would be to spread out the number of migrants so the
strain would not be on “one or two border communities.” “The president likes the idea and Democrats have said they want these individuals into their communities so let’s see if it works and everybody gets a win out of it,” Sanders said. “Again, this is not the ideal situation.” Trump tweeted on Saturday evening that the U.S. See WH, page A3
Escape Route road trade with state tabled By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion
A proposed public roads exchange that would have handed off the Nikiski Emergency Escape Route to the state has been shelved. At the April 2 Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting, assembly member Kenn Carpenter said the borough roads department and state couldn’t come to an agreement on the exchange. “These are roads that the borough and the state
have been working on trading throughout the borough here,” he said. “Things haven’t been going too well, so we’re going to ask to table it here after the public meeting.” In an October letter to Kenai Peninsula Borough Road Service Area Roads Director Dil Uhlin, the Alaska Department of Transportation’s Peninsula District Superintendent Carl High outlined a proposal to trade ownership and maintenance See ROAD, page A2

set in stone how that money can be distributed between state spending and dividends. Von Imhof’s bill would impose a 50-50 split between spending and dividends. In a statement issued when the bill was proposed, von Imhof said the bill is meant to start a conversation, and that it might not end up as a 50-50 split when the bill is finished. The intent of the bill, she asserted, is to establish a consistency in the way the money is distributed. During a Friday press conference, Rep. Neal Foster, D-Nome and co-chair of the House Finance Committee, said the PFD would probably be about $1,284 if the House’s budget goes through as is. He said the PFD would be around $2,300 if von Imhof’s legislation passes as is. Foster said in Friday’s press conference morning that members of the House wanted to get the budget out of the way before tackling the PFD. Costello said the Senate’s process will likely be different. “I think what you’re going to see come out of the Senate is the dividend in the operating budget itself,” Costello said. Von Imhof told reporters during a Friday morning press availability that the PFD would “most likely (be) within the budget itself.” Senate Minority Leader Tom Begich, D-Anchorage, was surprised to hear that. “It’s not my understanding that the dividend would be in the operating budget,” Begich said in an interview Friday, “and were I in the Senate Majority, I would caution against doing that. I think that would stand to place at risk a fairly well-thought-out budget process.” Foster said now that the House is done with its budget, they will start examining the
PFD as well as the governor’s proposed crime bills. Speaker of the House Bryce Edgmon, I-Dillingham, has spoken this week about how large and difficult the decision around the PFD will be. During a Thursday press conference, House Minority members including Rep. Delena Johnson, R-Palmer, were critical of the Majority’s decision to delay the debate on the PFD. “When you talk about a budget in Alaska that doesn’t have any kind of mention at all about the PFD in it, I guess I would
say that’s the most glaring omission I can even imagine,” Johnson said. Senate Finance subcommittee meetings are expected to wrap up this coming week, Begich said. He and Costello agreed that the process has gone smoothly so far, and both pointed out that members of the Senate Minority have been serving as chairs of the subcommittees, which is a little unusual. Begich said he appreciated that, and Costello said this has paved the way for a diversity of viewpoints to be represented in the process.

that residents should keep the full PFD and none should go toward funding state government. He promised to give people a full PFD that would be around $3,000, plus back payments to make up for the portions of their PFD they didn’t get under former Gov. Bill Walker. To make this possible, while also trying to erase a $1.6 billion difference between the state’s spending and revenues and without introducing new taxes, his budget proposal slashed funding to many state services deemed essential. Many concerned residents responded with outcry and outrage, and many Alaskans are grappling with the choice between a sizeable PFD and robust state services. Many legislators are looking to pursue a balance between PFDs and using Permanent Fund earnings to help fund government. Under Walker, the Legislature began reducing PFDs to help fund state government for the first time since the fund was set up in the 1970s. Senate Bill 26, which passed last year, allows the Legislature to pull from the earnings reserve to fund state government. Senators have already been looking at ways to protect the PFD. Earlier this month, Anchorage Republican Sen. Natasha von Imhof, co-chair of the Senate Finance Committee, introduced Senate Bill 103, which would affect the way the Legislature spends the money it takes from the Permanent Fund’s earnings reserve. SB 26, passed last year, set a percentage that the Legislature can take from the earnings reserve, but didn’t

gration and Customs Enforcement officers to arrest people facing deportation because sanctuary cities do not work with ICE. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University announced last week that an analysis found that immigrants in sanctuary cities are 20% less likely to be arrested out in the community than in cities without such policies. Democrats criticized the White House proposal as a political stunt that used humans as pawns and would not work. “Look, you can’t threaten somebody with something they’re not afraid of,” said Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington state, a candidate for president. “And we are not afraid of diversity in the state of Washington. We relish it. It is the basis of our economic and cultural success. We’re built as a state of immigrants.” The chairman of the
House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., questioned the legality of the proposal. “This is again his manufactured chaos that he’s created over the last two years on the border,” Thompson said of Trump, adding Democrats were more than willing to sit down and talk about immigration legislation. But Sen. Rick Scott, RFla., said sanctuary cities showed contempt for the law, though he didn’t know whether there were any legal concerns with transporting migrants to the locales. “I mean, maybe he’s just saying this to make everybody crazy,” he said of Trump. Sanders appears on ABC’s “This Week” and “Fox News Sunday.” Scott was on CNN’s “State of the Union” and Inslee was on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Thompson appeared on ABC.

sponsors. The memo says the additional funding would allow the school district to retain some non-tenured staff for the 2020 school year, and to also potentially provide a cushion to other potential state funding reductions. “There are many reasons to provide this, but one of the main reasons would be to retain some of the non-
tenured staff,” Dunne said at the April 2 assembly meeting. “It’s really unfortunate that we have to go through this on an annual basis — giving pink slips to nontenured staff with the hopes that we will be able to hire them again in the following fiscal year.” Dunne said if state funding is reduced, the borough may not be able to fund to the same cap next fiscal year. He said this supplemental funding can provide some breathing room, or a cushion for the school district if more cuts come in the future.
Today in History Today is Monday, April 15, the 105th day of 2019. There are 260 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 15, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln died nine hours after being shot the night before by John Wilkes Booth at Ford’s Theater in Washington; Andrew Johnson became the nation’s 17th president. On this date: In 1452, artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci was born in or near the Tuscan town of Vinci. In 1912, the British luxury liner RMS Titanic foundered in the North Atlantic off Newfoundland more than 2 1/2 hours after hitting an iceberg; 1,514 people died, while less than half as many survived. In 1943, the Ayn Rand novel “The Fountainhead” was first published by Bobbs-Merrill Co. In 1945, during World War II, British and Canadian troops liberated the Nazi concentration camp Bergen-Belsen. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who died on April 12, was buried at the Roosevelt family home in Hyde Park, New York. In 1947, Jackie Robinson, baseball’s first black major league player, made his official debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers on opening day at Ebbets Field. (The Dodgers defeated the Boston Braves, 5-3.) In 1959, Cuban leader Fidel Castro arrived in Washington to begin a goodwill tour of the United States. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles resigned for health reasons (he was succeeded by Christian A. Herter). In 1974, members of the Symbionese Liberation Army held up a branch of the Hibernia Bank in San Francisco; a member of the group was SLA kidnap victim Patricia Hearst, who by this time was going by the name “Tania” (Hearst later said she’d been forced to participate). In 1985, South Africa said it would repeal laws prohibiting sex and marriage between whites and non-whites. In 1986, the United States launched an air raid against Libya in response to the bombing of a discotheque in Berlin on April 5; Libya said 37 people, mostly civilians, were killed. In 1989, 96 people died in a crush of soccer fans at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England. Students in Beijing launched a series of pro-democracy protests; the demonstrations culminated in a government crackdown at Tiananmen Square. In 1998, Pol Pot, the notorious leader of the Khmer Rouge, died at age 72, evading prosecution for the deaths of two million Cambodians. In 2013, two bombs made from pressure cookers exploded at the Boston Marathon finish line, killing two women and an 8-year-old boy and injuring more than 260. Suspected bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev (TAM’-ehr-luhn tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) died in a shootout with police; his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv), was tried, convicted and sentenced to death. Ten years ago: Whipped up by conservative commentators and bloggers, tens of thousands of protesters staged “tea parties” around the country to tap into the collective angst stirred up by a bad economy, government spending and bailouts. A U.S. Army master sergeant was convicted of murder at a court-martial in Vilseck, Germany in the 2007 killings of four bound and blindfolded Iraqis. (John Hatley initially received life in prison, but had his sentence later reduced to 40 years.) Pirates released the Greek-owned cargo ship Titan that had been hijacked off the Somali coast on March 19. Five years ago: Boko Haram terrorists kidnapped some 276 girls from a school in northeastern Nigeria. Survivors, first responders and relatives of those killed in the Boston Marathon bombing marked the first anniversary of the attack with tributes that combined sorrow over the loss of innocent victims with pride over the city’s resilience. One year ago: A seven-hour battle over territory and money broke out among inmates armed with homemade knives at the Lee Correctional Institution in South Carolina, leaving seven inmates dead and 22 injured in the worst U.S. prison riot in a quarter-century. At the Academy of Country Music Awards, held in Las Vegas six months after the deadly shooting at a country music festival there, Jason Aldean paid tribute to the 58 people killed; he spoke after he was named entertainer of the year for the third consecutive time. (Aldean had been performing at the Las Vegas festival when the shooting began.) Today’s Birthdays: Actress Claudia Cardinale is 81. Author and politician Jeffrey Archer is 79. Rock singer-guitarist Dave Edmunds is 76. Actor Michael Tucci is 73. Actress Lois Chiles is 72. Writer-producer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason is 72. Actress Amy Wright is 69. Columnist Heloise is 68.

What Others Say
More can be done to stop robocalls You know the game by now:
A call comes into your mobile phone. A number pops up on your screen. You don’t recognize it. Your first instinct is to decline it, but what if it’s your child’s school? The auto repair guy? Something else? It’s a guessing game, and we’re the losers, again and again each day. U.S. mobile phone users received 48 billion robocalls last year, and it’s getting worse. Companies, some of them overseas, are using autodialing programs that encode Caller ID information so that the call looks like it’s from a local number — sometimes even numbers that look like your employer. That’s why we’re answering calls from computers and sending humans to voicemail. We’re cussing at our phones instead of talking on them. It’s annoying, and it violates laws that are supposed to protect Americans from spamming and scamming. But there is, potentially, a flickering of relief to the robocall madness. Lawmakers from state capitals to Washington are moving to slow the firehose of robocalls, and on Thursday, a U.S. Senate committee will hold a hearing on what it calls “The Scourge” of phone spam. It’s a bit of a show hearing — a chance for lawmakers to grill a telecom representative and signal that they understand their constituents’ misery. But the hearing is backed up with some legislation — the TRACED Act — which would push telecoms to improve their technology so that consumers can more easily identify scammers who wish to steal personal information. All four major carriers — AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon — have said they’ll adopt the strategy, but critics think they need the 18-month deadline the TRACED Act would mandate. The bill also makes it easier for the FCC to more quickly slap robocallers with significant fines, and it nudges the agency to be more aggressive with phone companies. The FCC has been ratcheting up its requests for telecoms to adopt more robust robocall technology, but it has been slow to actually require action. Meanwhile, states are taking steps of their own, including Virginia, which passed a law cracking down on companies that call residents who are on the National Do Not Call Registry or have stated previously they don’t want to be solicited by that company. Little, however, has been done recently in North Carolina beyond Attorney General Josh Stein joining 34 attorneys general in a letter urging the feds to do something about robocalls. … Congress and the U.S. government should pursue newer and tougher action. It won’t end the calls coming in to our mobile phones, but it could help us identify more quickly who’s on the other end. … — The Charlotte Observer of North Carolina, April 10

Protect Alaska’s precious resources
As an Alaskan who deeply loves my state, I am most alarmed by the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Pebble Mine issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Army Corps has clearly been compromised. They fail to take seriously the most looming threat from Pebble — a catastrophic tailings dam failure like the tragedy at Mount Polley in 2014. This dam failure resulted in a slurry of toxic water and millions of cubic meters of silt into pristine Quesnel Lake. Until then, Quesnel Lake had been the cleanest deep water lake in the world. Salmon were caught with their skin disintegrating. Can you imagine the outrage if that happened in Alaska? Knight Piésold, the company responsible for designing the dam that failed, is the same company hired by Northern Dynasty to design the earthen dams at Pebble. How can we possibly entrust our children’s most precious earthly resources, like the world-class Bristol Bay salmon run, to the likes of them? Even if we were lucky enough to avoid a catastrophic dam failure into the pristine salmon-bearing waters of Bristol Bay, the threat remains of slowly leaking mine waste for many, many generations long after Northern Dynasty has gone bankrupt and ceased to exist. It would fall to future taxpayers to clean up the mess, and
A laska V oices N atalie W atson that is unacceptable. It is likewise unacceptable to drill for fossil fuels in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. It is presently our obligation to sit tight on such fuel reserves. Future generations will surely need access to these energy stores so they may build the infrastructure to transition to clean and sustainable energy sources. This is the only remaining wise use for these reserves. Finally, Alaskans are proud to protect the largest remaining national forest, the Tongass. We recognize the forest as a precious resource that keeps our ecosystem healthy, contributes to a stable local economy through fishing, tourism, recreation and science, and provides mental and physical well-being to Southeast Alaskans, as well as over 1 million tourists a year. We recognize the Tongass as ancient and sacred; its beauty and wildness are balm to the weary soul. In its cool, moist air, one dwells within the lungs of the living planet. Our planet depends on forests to inhale
and store carbon. Intact old-growth forests such as the Tongass are a vital part of the global atmospheric carbon cycle, and stabilize the climate by sequestering vast amounts of carbon dioxide. Contrary to the misinformation campaign regarding the Roadless Rule, the rule does allow some roads to be approved that deal with transmission lines, mining and hydropower. What we intend to block is industrial-scale logging. Alaskans are proud that the Roadless Rule is a model for the rest of the nation and intend to keep it intact. What will our descendants make of this mad rush to exploit all the world’s resources within a few generations, leaving degraded food supplies and a climate gone haywire? We can’t help but see ahead to the appalling situation we are creating for them with our industrial-scale resource extraction. I envision them cursing us for letting the destruction of the global ecosystem happen on our watch and for not being brave enough to stop the bullies. The overriding importance of maintaining a stable global climate and sustainable food systems demands that we guard and protect our state’s precious resources. The world is counting on us. Natalie Watson is the board vice president of the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council.
Facts, not tales, tell story of ferry system In recent “battle of the budget” town hall meetings across the state, there have been few surprises. Budget-cutting resisters really know how to pack a room with emotionally charged testimony. And many people seem determined to “kill the goose that laid the golden egg” — insisting that Alaska’s largesse-fueled services are not just a benefit but a permanent entitlement. Many testified that along with the Permanent Fund Dividend program, generous government services are sacrosanct and, if reduced, economic dislocation, widespread suffering, even death, would ensue. Nevermind that residents living in Alaska 50 years or more got along just fine before receiving government gifts like the PFD, Medicaid expansion, preK programs, hefty union-negotiated retirements, 1 percent for arts, and ferries to any community that asked — just to name a few. Anguished testimony about the Alaska Marine Highway System has been particularly intense. The Alaska House Majority shamelessly produced a video featuring a child weeping over the possibility she might never again see her cousins in a neighboring community. It’s understandable people are upset over potential cuts to our ferry system. Coastal towns in Southeast, Prince William Sound and southwest Alaska rely on subsidized ferries because of the lack of inexpensive alternatives. But if we ever hope to justify continuing ferry operations, it’s important to recognize why we’re in this fix. Some testimony compared AMHS to Alaska’s road system saying that “roads don’t make a profit” and reducing ferry service would be like “shutting down the Parks Highway.” This faulty comparison ignores the fact that 99.5 percent of Alaska’s vehicular traf-
A laska V oices W in G ruening fic occurs on roads but historically over 80 percent of the highway operations/ maintenance budget is offset by users through gas taxes and other fees. Ferries move less than 1 percent of vehicular traffic with only 30 percent of the cost paid by users. Yet, total AMHS expenses run about $150 million annually, almost double the cost of maintaining all Alaska’s highways. Environmental activists and ferry unions have deliberately stalled meaningful road projects that would have made AMHS more efficient and sustainable. In 2000, after ample public process, former Gov. Tony Knowles rejected the Department of Transportation and Public Facilities’ announced Preferred Alternative for a Lynn Canal highway — instead spending almost $70 million on two untested fast ferries. Both ferries turned out to be unreliable, gas-guzzling albatrosses that have since been removed from service. For decades, ferry boosters ignored the reality of decreasing ridership and thwarted commonsense transportation planning. Alaskans are now saddled with a system rife with inefficiency, runaway operating costs, maintenance issues with aging vessels and a state subsidy of about $100 million in Fiscal Year 2017. For every dollar of passenger revenue, the state of Alaska contributes two dollars to keep the ferries afloat. Now we face more vessel layups, increasingly unaffordable vehicle fares and
service cutbacks. That’s what happens when emotion and politics inform our decisions. But it didn’t need to be that way. George Davidson, former ferry system manager in the 1980s, describes in his own words why. “While on the Southeast Conference board, I proposed a plan in 1977 to ensure the future of AMHS that SEC endorsed unanimously. The plan eliminated double crews on most vessels by operating mostly shuttle ferries. A mainline vessel would run north to Ketchikan then on to Juneau and return south. Shuttle ferries would then run from Juneau and Ketchikan to outlying communities. This “hub and spoke” system, combined with extending roads where possible, promised to greatly improve flexibility and reduce costs.” Unfortunately, the concept of a sensible, integrated transportation system was never implemented except in a limited way with ferry service between Ketchikan, Prince of Wales Island and Metlakatla. The Dunleavy administration is clear-eyed about what needs to be done. Its proposed day-boat shuttle ferry service in northern Lynn Canal will be a welcome enhancement that will improve reliability and reduce costs. The administration is also analyzing 10 other cost-saving “options available for reshaping the system.” These include raising rates, privatizing services, dropping or reducing high-cost/lowvolume runs and even selling vessels and facilities to allow municipalities to operate their own service. Some of these ideas may seem farfetched and may not be implemented. But this is where the facts have finally led us.

Community College in Gonzales, La. KRC’s team, known as the Kenai Kings, is the only Alaska representative this year. The team, coached by Jeffrey Laube, KRC associate professor of process technology, consists of Timothy Lehman, Brenner Musgrave, Edward Hoeldt and team captain Nikita Antonov. The Kenai Kings took the qualifying round testing in March at KRC, and placed as one of the top 10 teams in the country. More than 70 schools nationwide teach the process technology program and are welcome to compete in the competition. The competition consists of troubleshooting numerous computer simulations that monitor different types of processes. The team’s travel expenses are being sponsored by Marathon Petroleum and the Alaska Process Industry Careers Consortium (APICC). In a letter announcing the sponsorship, Casey Sullivan, Marathon’s government and public affairs manager in Alaska said that the application for funding “was approved unanimously. This is no small feat, but I think it’s a testament to the quality of the program, the students involved and our commitment to our community and its future workforce.”

Strong storms in US South kill at least 8 By The Associated Press
Powerful storms swept across the South on Sunday after unleashing suspected tornadoes and flooding that killed at least eight people, injured dozens and flattened much of a Texas town. Three children were among the dead. Nearly 90,000 customers were without electricity in Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Georgia as of midday Sunday, according to www.poweroutage.us as the severe weather left a trail of destruction. Two children were killed on a back road in East Texas when a pine tree fell onto the car in which they were riding in a severe thunderstorm Saturday near Pollok, about 150 miles southeast of Dallas. The tree “flattened the car like a pancake,” said Capt. Alton Lenderman of the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office. The children, ages 8 and 3, were dead at the scene, while both parents, who were in the front seat, escaped injury, he said. At least one person was

south of Dallas. The weather service said preliminary information showed an EF-3 tornado touched down with winds of 140 mph. It destroyed 55 homes, a church, four businesses, a duplex, and part of the local housing authority building, authorities said. Two people were hospitalized for injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene, Yezak said. Some people had to be extricated from damaged dwellings. Heavy rains and storms raked Mississippi into the night Saturday as the storms moved east. Roy Ratliff, 95, died after a tree crashed onto his trailer in northeastern Mississippi, Monroe County Road Manager Sonny Clay said at a news conference, adding that a tornado had struck. Nineteen residents were taken to hospitals, including two in critical condition. A tornado was reported in the area 140 miles southeast of Memphis, Tennessee, at the time. In Hamilton, Mississippi,
72-year-old Robert Scott said he had been sleeping in his recliner late Saturday when he was awakened and found himself in his yard after a tornado ripped most of his home off its foundation. His 71-year-old wife, Linda, was in a different part of the house and also survived, he said. They found each other while crawling through the remnants of the house they have lived in since 1972. “We’re living, and God has blessed us,” Scott, a retired manager for a grocery store meat department, said Sunday as neighbors helped him salvage his belongings. National Weather Service meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down in the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area. No injuries were reported, but officials reported damage to several businesses and vehicles. The storm damaged a roof of a hotel in New Albany, Mississippi, and Mississippi State University’s 21,000 students huddled in basements and hallways as a tornado neared the campus in Starkville.

A final transcript is one that shows your second semester grades… If you order your transcript when we are IN second semester, you will need to make sure you choose “next grading period” when you go on to Parchment… that way your transcript request will wait until the grades are in at the end of the year before it is sent.

Woods completes comeback, nabs Masters By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods blazing to victory in his Sunday red at the Masters, a scene once so familiar, was never more stunning. It was only two years ago at Augusta National that Woods needed a nerve block just to hobble upstairs to the Champions Dinner, unsure he would ever play another round of golf. He had a fourth back surgery with hopes of simply playing with his two children, not chasing Jack Nicklaus in history. And now it’s all pieced back together — his life, his back, even golf. A fallen hero, a crippled star, Woods is a Masters champion again. He won his fifth green jacket, his 15th major, but never with this much raw emotion. The most ferocious fist pump was when he walked off the 18th green, scooped up 10-year-old son
Charlie, and embraced his mother and his 11-year-old daughter Sam. “For them to see what it’s like to have their dad win a major championship, I hope that’s something they will never forget,” Woods said. Who can ever forget this day? “It’s hard to really feel bad about how I played because I just witnessed history,” said Xander Schauffele, one of three players who finished second. “It was really cool coming down the stretch, all the historic holes, Tiger making the roars. I feel like I got full Masters experience.” The comeback goes beyond the two-shot deficit he erased before a delirious audience that watched memories turn into reality. It had been 14 years since he last won the Masters — no one had ever gone that long between green jackets. He had gone nearly 11 years since his last major, the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines on a shattered left leg.
Bucks rip Pistons By The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points and 17 rebounds in just 24 minutes, and the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks showed they were serious about making a playoff run with a 121-86 rout of the Detroit Pistons in Game 1 on Sunday night. The MVP candidate ran and dunked all over the Pistons, who only really caught him when center Andre Drummond shoved him to the ground with both hands late in the third quarter after Antetokounmpo grabbed an offensive rebound with Detroit trailing by 41 points. ROCKETS 122, JAZZ 90 HOUSTON — James Harden had 29 points and 10 assists to help Houston rout Utah in the opener of a best-of-seven first-round playoff series. The Rockets had a double-digit lead for most of the game, but the Jazz got within five points midway through the third quarter before Houston used a big run to pull away and sail to the victory.
TRAIL BLAZERS 104, THUNDER 99 PORTLAND, Ore. — Damian Lillard scored 30 points and third-seeded Portland opened its playoff series against No. 6 Oklahoma City with a victory. Enes Kanter added 20 points and a career playoff-high 18 rebounds for the Blazers, who were making their sixth straight postseason appearance. CJ McCollum added 24 points.
CELTICS 84, PACERS 74 BOSTON — Kyrie Irving and Marcus Morris each scored 20 points, and Boston rallied in the second half to beat Indiana in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.
Blue Jackets grab 3-0 lead By The Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Blue Jackets extended their postseason mastery of the Tampa Bay Lightning, beating the NHL’s best team 3-1 on Sunday night and moving to within a game of sweeping the playoff series. Matt Duchene, Oliver Bjorkstrand and Cam Atkinson scored, and Sergei Bobrovsky fended off a desperate third-period charge to finish with 30 saves for the Blue Jackets, who took a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven, first-round series. Columbus will try to win a playoff series for the first time in franchise history in Game 4 at home Tuesday night. GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6, SHARKS 3 LAS VEGAS — Mark Stone had three goals and two assists, and Vegas beat San Jose to take a 2-1 lead in its first-round playoff series.
JETS 6, BLUES 3 ST. LOUIS — Kyle Connor scored twice, Patrik Laine had a goal and an assist, and Winnipeg beat St. Louis to climb back into its playoff series.
ISLANDERS 4, PENGUINS 1 PITTSBURGH — Jordan Eberle scored for the third straight game, Robin Lehner stopped 25 shots and New York stunned Pittsburgh to take a 3-0 lead in its best-of-seven, first-round playoffs series.
This was bigger. Woods never missed a shot that mattered over the final seven holes, taking the lead with a 5-iron to the fat of the green on the par-5 15th for a two-putt birdie, delivering the knockout with an 8-iron that rode down the ridge by the cup and settled 2 feet away for birdie on the par-3 16th. He tapped in for bogey and a 2-under 70, and the celebration was on. “WOOOOOOO!!!” Woods screamed as he headed for the scoring room with chants of “Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!” He had never hugged more people, everyone in his camp who stood by him through a public divorce, an embarrassing mug shot from his DUI arrest when he took a bad mix of painkillers and the four back surgeries, the most recent to fuse his lower spine. “I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago,” Woods said. “I could barely walk. I couldn’t sit. Couldn’t lay down. I re-
ally couldn’t do much of anything. ... To have the opportunity to come back like this, it’s probably one of the biggest wins I’ve ever had for sure because of it.” President Donald Trump, who has played with Woods at his Florida course, had two tweets of congratulations. Fenway Park posted the news on the scoreboard. A comeback for the ages? It rates among the best because Woods has meant so much to so many in a sport he ruled for so long. Whether he can dominate it again is still to be determined. Woods needed some help to win this Masters. Six players had a share of the lead at some point on the back nine, and there was a five-way tie at the top when the final group was still on the 15th fairway. “You couldn’t have had more drama than we all had out there. And now I know why I’m balding,” Woods said. “This stuff is hard.” It didn’t look that way when he was younger,

healthier and the most popular sporting figure in the world. Woods lost his impeccable image to a sex scandal, one of the swiftest and most shocking downfalls in sports. He lost his health to back problems. He went two years without even playing a major. Now the comeback is truly complete. And the race
is on. “A big ‘well done’ from me to Tiger,” Nicklaus tweeted. “I am so happy for him and for the game of golf. This is just fantastic!!!” Woods now is three short of the gold standard — 18 majors — set by Nicklaus. “I think 18 is a whole lot closer than people think,” Brooks Koepka said.

Peninsula Clarion | Monday, April 15, 2019 | A11
Politics put a sudden end to 20-year-old friendship DEAR ABBY: I work as a secretary in a big law office. At the end of the year we are supposed to box up and summarize our closed files so they can be stored in our warehouse. For some reason, all the women in the office seem to think I should find a man to help me carry the Abigail Van Buren boxes. All I’m doing is picking them up and putting them on a cart so I can take them to my desk. Abby, I am more than capable of carrying a box that weighs anywhere from 20 to 50 pounds. I’m in my mid-30s, fairly active and have never had a problem with this. I have worked here for about three years, and it’s always the same reaction. Today my supervisor made a big scene and insisted I find help. I hate having to hear the same thing every year. I don’t know why it bugs me, but it does. My feeling is if I can do it, why not? Should I just give in to their demands or stand my ground? -- DOING MY JOB DEAR DOING: Your supervisor may have told you to have a man place the boxes
on the cart, I suspect, because of possible liability should you injure your back doing the lifting. Because ignoring the request could lead to “issues” with your employer, you should comply. DEAR ABBY: I have recently been transferring all my photo slides from my childhood to my present age to my computer. Reviewing them I am dismayed there are very few photos of my grandfather, father or husband because they were usually the ones behind the camera taking the photos. Let’s all remember to also put them in front of the camera so we may have many cherished memories of them, too. -- PICTURING IT IN OAKLAND, CALIF. DEAR PICTURING IT: Your suggestion has merit, which is why I’m sharing it. However, with the advent of cellphone cameras and the ease with which folks take group selfies these days, I’m betting that in the future no one will be left out of the picture. 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 Monday, April 15, 2019: This year, you might be focused on your daily life. You want your days to flow. If you’re single, try to avoid mixing work and pleasure.

You might learn more than you thought. Extremes hit when dealing with a partner and your bond. Try not to take a conclusive action. Give yourself some space to think through your words and actions. Tonight: Not to be found. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Speak your mind. You might hear some news that you have been waiting for. A partner or loved one could be full of surprises.

Tonight: Veg out while watching a favorite movie. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH A partner or associate plays a key role in your financial stability. The way you deal with a problem could change greatly. Your sense of well-being might be threatened if a loved one goes on a rant or rave. Let the other party know his or her behavior is unacceptable. Tonight: Say “yes” to living. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Defer to an associate who wants to take the lead. Even if you disagree, this person needs to see the outcome of his or her ideas.

FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Here are some uses for leftover bread: * Cube bread and bake for inexpensive croutons. * Make into breadsticks by cutting into strips, then brushing with butter or olive oil and sprinkling with seasonings. Bake until crispy. * Cube bread into very small pieces and use as a topping for casseroles. -- Heloise HOSPITAL VISIT Dear Heloise: When I recently went into the hospital, friends would call and ask what I needed. I said I’d love any travel brochures they could lay their hands on. This kept my mind off my impending surgery and helped me plan for my next trip. I liked it better than reading magazines that feature movie stars. -- Patricia D., Great Falls, Mont. Patricia, what a great idea! You can lie back and visualize yourself on your next adventure. It helps you make plans and takes you out of the hospital atmosphere. -- Heloise WALKING THE DOG Dear Heloise: Last night, while walking my dog in our neighborhood, a car came out of nowhere and nearly hit me. The fault, however, was mine. I should have had reflective gear on myself and a flashing light on my dog. I will now, but it was a close call. Please tell your readers that many accidents can be avoided if people make themselves more visible when they’re outside at night. -- Lewis G., Fresno, Calif.

DEAR ABBY: In the last presidential election, I had a friend who voted differently than I did. We didn’t try to persuade each other to vote “our” way, but I did share on social media some opinions about people who had taken some controversial positions. She regarded these opinions as a personal attack and stepped out of my life without warning. I have tried to re-engage with her several times -- texts, Facebook messages, phone calls. One message was met with hostility, and the others have gone unanswered. I have tried to apologize for hurting her feelings even though I didn’t intend to and asked for forgiveness. I have offered to take her to lunch. I hate the idea of walking away from a 20year friendship (we are both in our mid-30s, so this is a friendship that has lasted more than half our lives) over something that seems so insignificant to me. Do I quit? Do I keep trying? -- MISSING MY FRIEND IN MICHIGAN DEAR MISSING: What happened is unfortunate. Because not one of your overtures has been accepted, step back and stop trying for a while. After the next election, cooler heads may prevail, and she may be more receptive.

In January, in an unexpected vote, the board decided to move the regulatory meeting from the Kenai Peninsula to Anchorage. The meeting was originally going to be held in Anchorage, but a March 2018 vote moved the meeting to the Kenai-Soldotna area. Homer Rep. Sarah Vance announced in a press release Friday that
she had launched an inquiry into the move. Vance said the decision to launch the inquiry came 10 weeks after she signed onto the Kenai Peninsula delegation’s letter to the Chairman of the Board of Fish, Reed Morisky, questioning the meeting move. “Chairman Morisky has had sufficient time to respond to questions and concerns brought up by
the Kenai Peninsula delegation and as of this time, we have not received any response,” said Vance between floor sessions on Tuesday, according to the release. “A transparent process is integral to the proper stewardship of our fishing resources. The fact that Alaskans continue to be circumvented by the Board of Fish is unacceptable.”
Vance’s office filed a public records request with the Department of Fish & Game requesting access to the internal communications and phone records of the chairman and members of the Board of Fish, according to the release. “The public has quickly lost trust in the process that has been designed to weigh their input, and
I don’t blame them for that,” Vance said, according to the release. “Not only do I believe that the public is owed an apology, I also believe they’re also owed an explanation. This pattern of misleading Alaskans and declining to explain has caused real damage to the integrity of the board. Now is the time for accountability and transparency.”
we’re doing,” Topou said. “We’re reaching for the governor, we’re reaching for everyone to give us the education that we need, and all we’re asking is that you take our hand and that we can walk to the future together.” Dunleavy’s budget proposal calls for a reduction in funding of $300 million from school districts across the state, according to the Department of Edu-
cation and Early Development. That includes a cut of $10 million to the Juneau School District. The House of Representatives’ budget proposal, passed this week, does not propose those deep cuts and even seeks to guarantee funding for the next fiscal year as well. Speakers at Saturday’s rally — including education advocate and former U.S. Congressional candi-
date Alyse Galvin — were passionate as they spoke to the crowd, but none spoke with quite the energy of Rep. Grier Hopkins, DFairbanks. Hopkins was vehement about the importance of education in his life, going as far to name off the elementary school teachers he had to prove how he still thinks of them. The rally was organized by Great Alaska Schools, thread Alaska, the South-
east Alaska Association for the Education of Young Children, National Education Association (NEA) Alaska, and the Juneau Education Association. Multiple speakers, including Dzantik’i Heeni teacher Amy Lloyd, brought up Dunleavy’s propensity to carry a red pen. The pen is meant to symbolize his veto power, which he said he would use if the Legislature passes a budget that
he doesn’t agree with. Rep. Sara Hannan, D-Juneau, said no teacher or former teacher like herself is afraid of a red pen. Lloyd spoke along the same lines, saying teachers wield a red pen when they’re correcting papers and providing feedback. “When we pick up a red pen,” Lloyd said, “it is to grow Alaska, support our students and brighten our future.”
