In the news Alaska ice melt guessing game ends on earliest date recorded NENANA — Early ice melt has provided a record finish to an annual Alaska guessing game that’s been going on for 102 years, officials said. The 2019 Nenana Ice Classic finished Sunday at 12:21 a.m. when a tripod mounted on the frozen Tanana River fell over as ice on the river broke up, marking the end of the contest, The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday. April 14 is six days earlier than the previous record of April 20 set in 1940 and in 1998, according to the International Arctic Research Center at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. Residents since 1917 have purchased tickets recording guesses of the exact day and time when the melting ice would separate and cause the marker to fall. The event began as a bet among railroad engineers and has paid out more than $14 million in its history. This year thousands paid $2.50 per ticket, with unusually warm spring temperatures across Alaska causing a rush of last-minute purchases. A store and gas station in Nenana each sold at least 2,000 tickets and ordered extras, according to reports. — Associated Press

Correction The article “Community discusses consolidation of SoHi, SoPrep” published in the Sunday edition of the Clarion stated that River City Academy is a charter school. River City Academy is a noncharter public school within the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. The Clarion regrets the error.

Sourdough stories Local bakers discuss keeping an Alaska tradition alive By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Sourdough starters — which are used to make bread, pancakes and more — is a quintessential Alaska food. A sourdough refers to both old, hearty Alaskans, and to the starters nearly every early settler brought with them on their trek north. Sourdough starters — a fermented mixture of flour, water and a little sugar — were relied on to leaven bread before commercial baking powder and yeast were available in the Last Frontier. The use of sourdough dates much further back than Alaska’s early Klondike gold-seekers and adventurers. It’s the oldest form of leavened bread in existence and is believed to have been used as far back as ancient Egypt. Once a starter is made, a short fermentation process

Biennial science symposium begins this Thursday By KAT SORENSEN Peninsula Clarion

their starters with equal parts

The Kenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership is, once again, hosting a science symposium to discuss the healthy future for fish, and all things impacted by fish, on the Kenai Peninsula. The biennial symposium, taking place this Thursday, April 18 at the Cannery Lodge in Kenai, is free with open registration to the public. “We’re looking for as many diverse perspectives as we can get,” said Branden Bornemann, coordinator for the Kenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership and executive director of the Kenai Watershed Forum. “We’re hoping to have robust con-

Believers in the power of music By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

Joe Rizzo has been the president of Triumvirate Theatre since the organization was incorporated as a nonprofit in 1998, so he knows a thing or two about what days and times of the year draw the biggest crowds in this area. Thursday at 7 p.m. is not one of those times. That’s when Bernie and the Believers will be putting on a concert at Triumvirate North. Rizzo hopes the powerful story behind the band is enough to overcome the difficulty of getting a crowd out on a Thursday night during a spring packed with entertainment options.

“This is a very special thing,” Rizzo said. “All somebody has to do is get on and watch the NPR Tiny

Desk concert to want to come to this thing. “It’s very moving and it’s kind of Alaskan in the way

we help each other out. On top of being a great story, these guys are amazing musicians.”

Rizzo was watching the National Public Radio Tiny Desk concert shortly after it was released Nov. 13, 2018. After playing two songs, singer/songwriter Essence Goldman told the band’s story. Goldman, a sixth-generation San Franciscan, came back from a tour to a divorce. The mother of two children, she needed extra income and placed an ad on Craigslist offering voice lessons in January 2016. One of the first to respond was Bernie Dalton, a 46-yearold who enjoyed surfing and made a living cleaning pools. Dalton showed his dedication by driving 90 minutes each way for the lessons.

There could be a new, quick way to send PFD money to state By Ben Hohenstatt Juneau Empire

Alaskans who want to give their Permanent Fund Dividend money to the state could have an easier way to do so. State Sen. David Wilson, R-Wasilla, spoke Monday morning during a Senate Fi-

nance Committee meeting about Senate Bill 92, which would allow people to choose to contribute $25 or more in PFD money to the state during the electronic application process. “If you want to donate to the general fund, that’s your choice, feel free to do so,” Wilson said. “If you choose

to keep your PFD, that is also your choice. We just believe Senate Bill 92 is all about freedom to make decisions and not have the government make that decision for you.” He said the bill was based on input from people around the state, including his constituents, who wanted to use the PFD to help fund state

Rural troopers attend specialized training By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion


$1 newsstands daily/$1.50 Sunday

At the beginning of April, the Department of Public Safety conducted a weeklong training for Alaska State Troopers centered around combating sexual assault and domestic violence in rural areas. According to an April 9 press release from DPS, 10 State and Wildlife Troopers from the communities of Anchor Point, Bethel, Cordova, Kotzebue, Nome, Prince of Wales, St. Mary’s and Togiak attended the training. The first day of training consisted of tactical response exercises at the Palmer PD gun range, with See RURAL, page A11

government due to the state budget crisis. “We’ve heard from many, many Alaskans who are interested in donating all or a portion of their PFD to the general fund to help support government to help increase services,” Wilson said. “We’ve received plethora of testimony over the past few

days. We’ve heard, ‘Take my PFD. I’m willing to receive reduced PFD.’” The bill generated questions from fellow senators, but no members of the general public spoke about the potential bill. Sen. Bert Stedman, RSitka, asked if people facing See PFD, page A3

Kenai man charged with vehicle theft, burglary, forgery By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

A Kenai man has been charged with vehicle theft and forgery after an investigation into a burglarized residence, according to an affidavit filed at the Kenai Courthouse on Saturday. Andy Campos, 57, allegedly stole a vehicle and other valuables from a vacant Nikiski residence and later rented the residence out to a third party under the false pretenses that he was the property owner. According to the affidavit, troopers had received a call on April 11 about a possible burglary and vehicle theft at a residence on Littmitz Avenue in Nikiski. Troopers con-

tacted the property owner who said that she had not been at the residence for about two years and that the buildings and vehicle — a tan Toyota Sienna minivan — had been secured prior to leaving. The property owner gave troopers a list of valuables that were in the residence, including four TVs, two Xbox One gaming consoles and 4 DVD players valuing approximately $2,056. There was also a backpack with important documents including birth certificates and vehicle titles in the back of the minivan, according to the affidavit. When troopers investigated the residence in question on April 12, See THEFT, page A3

Severe storm damage to homes is seen on Plymouth Springmill Road just south of the intersection of Ohio Route 96 in Shelby, Ohio, Sunday. (Tom E. Puskar/The Times Gazette via AP) By The Associated Press

Strong storms, including at least one tornado, swept through parts of the Midwest and the Mid-Atlantic region, damaging homes and businesses and causing injuries after storms in the South killed at least eight people. Storms that hit Ohio on Sunday and moved into New Jersey overnight into Monday brought heavy rains, lightning, strong winds and, in Ohio, at least one tornado. The storms followed worse conditions that had swept across the South, unleashing more

than a dozen confirmed tornadoes and flooding, killing at least eight people, injuring dozens and flattening much of a Texas town. In Virginia, about an hour south of Washington, authorities said a tree fell on a house and killed a woman early Monday morning. The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office said the unidentified woman, 78, had been asleep when the tree fell at 1:43 a.m. An 82-year-old man who was in the home was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.

In Shelby, Ohio, the National Weather Service said an EF2 tornado with winds of up to 125 mph touched down Sunday. No deaths were reported, but Richland County emergency officials said several homes and businesses were damaged and that at least six people were injured in the city roughly 90 miles southwest of Cleveland. The weather service says an EF0 tornado with maximum winds of about 70 mph also swept through part of Clark County in western Ohio on Sunday, about 40 miles west of Columbus, and damaged some mobile homes. There were no immediate reports of injuries there. Storms on Monday spawned a tornado watch and flooded roadways in some areas of New Jersey, causing a roof to collapse at an apartment complex in Camden, though no injuries were reported. The weather disrupted rail service in the mid-Atlantic region, caused delays at airports and left tens of thousands of utility customers without power. More than 20,000 customers lost power in New

Jersey when the storms hit, though crews were able to quickly restore service to most. The weather service confirmed Monday that a tornado significantly damaged a lumber company Sunday evening in Starbrick, in northern Pennsylvania. Vermont officials say flooding from spring rains closed a number of roads Monday. An emergency operations center has been activated to help communities respond to the flooding. The weather service said Monday that a survey team found evidence of an EF3 twister with winds of at least 136 mph near Weches, Texas, and that two other smaller tornadoes touched down in the same region on Saturday. Another EF3 twister flattened part of Franklin, Texas. The system moved eastward into Mississippi, where weather service teams have confirmed eight tornadoes. And at least three weak tornadoes struck Alabama on Sunday. Four people were killed in Texas. The other victims died in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

SpaceX launches Falcon Heavy, sticks 3-booster landing By Marco Santana and Mark Skoneki Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, Fla. — SpaceX launched its massive Falcon Heavy rocket on Thursday night carrying a communications satellite, and for the first time landed all three boosters safely on land and at sea a few minutes after liftoff. The mission began right on time at 6:35 p.m. EDT, when the rocket roared to life with a huge fireball from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center. About two minutes after launch, the boosters separated and the spacecraft and its payload, the Arabsat 6A communications

satellite, were on their way to space. At six minutes after launch, two of the boosters could be seen lighting up as they reentered the atmosphere. Shortly thereafter, two sonic booms echoed and shook buildings at the space center. Two of the rockets landed safely in landing zones at Kennedy Space Center and a third came down on the company’s “Of Course I Still Love You” sea barge in the Atlantic. The happy landings were an improvement over SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy test flight in February 2018. That mission resulted in two successful landings, but the third booster crashed into the Atlantic Ocean.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday had put the chances of success for the triple landing at 90% to 95%. On Thursday, a triumphant Musk tweeted, “The Falcons have landed.” The successful launch marks a milestone for a company that has been pushing for this moment since its founding in 2002. This rocket launch attracted scores of space tourists to the Space Coast throughout the week. Some tourism officials had predicted more than 100,000 spectators would flood the region. Officials with Port Canaveral were expecting a packed day at Jetty Park. They said the park had

to close to new arrivals at about 4:30 on Wednesday. On Thursday, a new crowd lined the port at Jetty Park pier, fishing lines in the water and campers opened in anticipation. Several families could be seen having a cookout hours before SpaceX’s rescheduled launch. Kenny and Cheryl Boudreaux, who parked their 1950 Ford F-1 pickup there, stopped at the park’s campground on the way back from a vacation in the Florida Keys. Cheryl said the excitement for her has been building since Sunday’s scrub made a launch viewing possible for the couple, who live near New Orleans in Amite City, La.

The neighbor showed troopers a lease dated April 11, 2019 that had signatures from her and Campos. The neighbor said that Campos drove a tan minivan similar to the one in question and that the minivan had gone missing from the property sometime between August and September of 2018, troopers reported. Later that day, troopers

found Campos on Princess Street in Kenai driving the missing minivan, according to the affidavit. While being questioned by troopers, Campos allegedly stated that he had bought the minivan from someone last summer but had lost the title.

obligations. Weske said it would. Sen. Peter Micciche, RSoldotna, said he supports the idea behind the bill, but would like there to be a mechanism that makes choosing to send PFD money to the general fund a tax-free proposition for Alaskans. “What this bill does is it allows them to do online what they can do today by receiving the check and giving it back,” Micciche said. He said in the instance of a $3,000 PFD check with a 30 percent tax rate, it would cost $900 to participate. “I think there are ways to do it because you never have control over the funds,” Micciche said. “I think it’s some-

thing we should think about. People will take advantage of this program if they don’t have to spend $900.” Wilson said he had not found a way around the money being taxed and said it would be advisable for people to check with a tax professional before opting to donate PFD money. Sen. Natasha von Imhof, R-Anchorage, committee cochair, said the bill was not being passed from committee, and her office would be accepting amendments throughout the week while it was set aside for further reading. She said fluctuating dividend size and individual tax scenarios would make it extremely difficult to include

specifications related to tax in the bill. “To try to put something in the bill that covers any all situations, I think would potentially be nearly impossible,” Von Imhof said. Micciche took the opportunity near the end of the meeting to clear up a common misconception about PFD money. “We hear from people all over the state on these issues, and one of the things we hear is, if you don’t want your dividend just don’t apply for it, and it will go back to the state. Well, it doesn’t,” he said. “It gets divided by the remaining people that applied for the dividend, so that doesn’t work.”

across one day starting at 9 a.m. The day starts with 15-minute presentations from different groups engaged in the partnership. The afternoon sessions include a keynote talk with Sue Mauger and Dr. Kristin Mitchell as they share their lessons learned during their time traveling Antartica. “They travelled with women scientists from around the world, having discussions and exploring,” Bornemann said. “They’ll talk about lessons learned and key takeaways.”

The day ends with a roundtable discussion covering topics such as marine habitat, freshwater habitat, outreach, partnerships and thinking outside the box. “We’re hoping to gain insight into what partners are doing for fish habitat and where the Kenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership can help them do things better, where the opportunities exist to partner together in the future,” Bornemann said. Entry is free, but guests are asked to preregister online on

the Kenai Watershed Forum website or at id=679. Free coffee, drinks and food from Lucy’s will be provided. “The mission for the partnership is to protect, maintain, restore and enhance fish habitats,” Bornemann said. “Our purpose is to create and foster effective collaborations, healthy fish, habitat, economy in the Kenai Peninsula Borough. Anyone interested in any of those thoughts are more than welcome to join.”

What Others Say

China and EU lead by example on free trade China and the European Union

reaffirmed their shared commitment to further cementing their partnership and safeguarding free trade and multilateralism in a joint statement released on Tuesday at the conclusion of the ChinaEU Summit in Brussels, which Chinese Premier Li Keqiang attended. As two stabilizing forces in the world, their renewed commitment to uphold multilateralism and the fundamental norms governing international relations, and shared resolve to work together for improved global governance will be widely welcomed. In a Pavlovian response to the meeting, Washington showed why that is the case, with a threat to impose tariffs on billions of EU imports, ostensibly because of subsidies to Airbus. While Boeing has flown into trouble with its 737 MAX — for which it has received zero orders since all the operational planes were grounded for safety reasons — and will welcome such government pressure on its rival, the timing of the threat has raised eyebrows. Such moves have become a hallmark of the current US administration, which like Goldilocks wants everything just right and is willing to eat everyone else’s meal so long as it gets what it wants. China has always advocated for a win-win situation in its trade relations with other countries, and staunchly opposes a winner-take-all approach when handling disputes, a position that the European Union has also taken. Likewise, they stressed they want to work together to uphold peace and stability and address global challenges. Thus they reaffirmed their commitment to the Iran nuclear deal, a key element of the global nonproliferation architecture, and the implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change, both of which the United States has withdrawn from, believing they do not serve its interests, even though that was never their exclusive purpose. And unlike the US which it seems does not want to see any tangible outcome in the negotiations between China and the ASEAN countries on a Code of Conduct for the South China Sea, the EU welcomes the talks and hopes they will produce an effective conclusion. By affirming that they will pursue policies that support an open, balanced, and inclusive global economy and multilateral trading system with the World Trade Organization at its core and better global governance under the United Nations framework, the joint statement showed that China and the EU have a fruitful partnership and recognize their responsibility to lead by example and oppose the damaging tendencies of unilateralism and protectionism. That stance may not find favor in the US capital, but in most other places around the world it will. — China Daily, April 10

Falling for the Presidential con

We should do better, but how can we? By “we,” I mean media wretches — the purveyors, so President Donald Trump charges, of “fake news.” The reality is that we constantly deal in his fake spews of outrageous controversy, which he concocts to feed his insatiable need for attention, and our perpetual need to have something to feed our beasts. Astronomers made a big deal about actually photographing a black hole; we all know that it doesn’t compare with the black hole that is Donald Trump’s desperate inner child. But what can we do? As journalists, we can’t just ignore the guy. He is, after all, our emperor. Thankfully, he does have clothes — one dark suit and a red tie that’s too long — but imagine the alternative. If the expression “Don’t go there” ever had meaning, this would be it. The point is that he sucks us into the fake ooze of his latest contrivance. No matter how preposterous, we run with it, breathlessly reporting the absurdity du jour, while various news networks convene a panel of “experts” who chew on whatever nonsense he has dreamed up until it’s mush. What does it all mean? Is he really going to do that? What would be the impact if he actually did? What will the courts say? How will Congress react? What about big business, which bribes Congress? After a few hours, or until he is alone in the dark recesses

of Twitter, the Trumpster will tire of that heap and create new garbage. This not only starts a new cycle, it also allows him to control the entire news agenda. Bob Franken A case in point is the idea of rounding up all the immigrants who are overrunning our southern border and transporting them to the cities, counties and states, about 300 in all, that have chosen to become “sanctuaries,” meaning they won’t necessarily cooperate with federal immigration officials who are lurking to deport anyone here illegally. Trump’s pretense that he is seriously considering such an offensive offensive had the usual Pavlovian effect on us news hounds. We started drooling, actually foaming at the mouth, just because the Donald had thrown us another bone of contention. Never mind that the idea is ludicrous, and never mind that it wouldn’t work, that it would be illegal and too expensive; he had once again created a frenzy. Democrats in Washington and elsewhere (How many sanctuaries are Republican? Not many) went into various stages of huffing and puffing about Trump’s cruelty, his barbarity. The experts — legal advisers, the im-

migration ones, the mayors, political analysts — were in full raging pundit mode, twaddles flying. The newspapers were covered with stories splattered onto their front pages. Somewhere, Donald Trump was having a good chuckle. He had bamboozled us, sucked us into his sewer still again. The overflow would cover the weekend and the weekend game shows — excuse me, talk shows — where the hosts and hostesses, guests and guestesses would take the bait and debate, offending and defending, sputtering and muttering at each other about the latest Trump utterance. It’s unclear whether Donald Trump plans this stuff or whether it’s just impulse. He has built an entire lifetime of prosperity because of an amazing ability to shamelessly promote himself. He is Tabasco to everyone else’s vanilla, particularly in a Washington that, frankly, thrives on dull. That’s how it used to be: Personalities would come here to die. It’s easy for Trump to stand out. When it comes time to blow his horn, he’s all brass and everyone else here is muted. As opposed to the get-along-goalong harmony here, he is all about dissonance. Those of us who record him may cover our ears and hold our noses, but we treat his every screech like music. It’s noise pollution, part of the political pollution that fouls the entire world.

Trump ups his attacks with Mueller report due Thursday By MICHAEL BALSAMO and JONATHAN LEMIRE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The president isn’t waiting. As Washington counts down the final hours until publication of the redacted special counsel report — now expected Thursday — Donald Trump stepped up his attacks Monday in an effort to undermine potential disclosures on Russia, his 2016 campaign and the aftermath. He unleashed a series of tweets focusing on the previously released summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions — including a crucial one on obstruction of justice that Trump again misrepresented — produced by Attorney General William Barr. “Mueller, and the A.G. based on Mueller findings (and great intelligence), have already ruled No Collusion, No Obstruction,” Trump tweeted. “These were crimes committed by Crooked Hillary, the DNC, Dirty Cops and others! INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS!” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders repeatedly tried to make the same case on TV talk shows on Sunday. But the political battle is far from finished over the special counsel’s investigation of Russian efforts to help Trump in 2016 and whether there was cooperation with his campaign. Democrats are calling for Mueller himself to testify before Congress and have expressed concern that Barr will order unnecessary censoring of the report to protect the president. The House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, is poised to try to compel Barr to turn over an unredacted copy as well as the report’s underlying

investigative files. The Justice Department announced Monday that it expects to release the redacted version Thursday morning, sending the findings of the nearly two-year probe to Congress and making them available to the public. Mueller officially concluded his investigation late last month and submitted the confidential report to Barr. Two days later, the attorney general sent Congress a four-page letter that detailed Mueller’s “principal conclusions.” In his letter, Barr said the special counsel did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russia and Trump associates during the campaign. However, contrary to Trump’s false claim, Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. Instead, Mueller presented evidence on both sides of that question. Barr said he did not believe the evidence was sufficient to prove that Trump had obstructed justice, but he noted that Mueller’s team did not exonerate the president. Portions of the report being released by the Justice Department will be redacted to protect grand jury material, sensitive intelligence, matters that could affect ongoing investigations and damage to the privacy rights of third parties, the attorney general has said. The scores of outstanding questions about the investigation have not stopped the president and his allies from declaring victory. They have painted House Democrats’ investigations as partisan overreach and have targeted news outlets and individual reporters they say have promoted the collusion story. The president himself seethed at a political rally that the whole thing was an attempt “to tear up the fab-

ric of our great democracy.” He has told confidants in recent days that he was certain the full report would back up his claims of vindication but was also convinced the media would manipulate the findings in an effort to damage him, according to two Republicans close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. In the waiting game’s final days, the White House continued to try to shape the narrative. “There was no obstruction, which I don’t how you can interpret that any other way than total exoneration,” press secretary Sanders said on “Fox News Sunday.” While the president unleashed his personal grievances, his team seized on any exculpatory information in Barr’s letter, hoping to define the conversation in advance, according to White House officials and outside advisers who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss private deliberations. The victory lap was deliberately premature, they said. But Trump’s inner circle knows there will likely be further releases of embarrassing or politically damaging information. Barr’s letter, for instance, hinted that there would be at least one unknown action by the president that Mueller examined as a possible act of obstruction. A number of White House aides have privately said they are eager for all Russia stories, good or bad, to fade from the headlines. And there is fear among some presidential confidants that the rush to spike the football in celebration could backfire if bombshell new information emerges.

Nation/World Shock, prayers around the world for Notre Dame By ANDREW SELSKY Associated Press

The world reacted with shock, horror and prayers to the massive fire Monday at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, united in grief and in solidarity with the people of France. As the flames tore through the 12th-century cathedral, Spain’s prime minister offered France the help of his country in the recovery. The fire is a “catastrophe for France, for Spain and for Europe,” Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez tweeted, adding that the flames are destroying “850 years of history, architecture, painting and sculpture.” U.S. President Donald Trump, speaking at the start of an appearance in Minnesota, spoke of the “terrible, terrible fire” that was destroying “one of the great treasures of the world.” “It’s a part of our growing up, it’s a part of our culture, it’s a part of our lives,” Trump said of the landmark.

The Notre Dame Cathedral, situated on an island in the Seine River in the heart of Paris, is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, drawing some 13 million people each year. The fire’s emotional impact was widely felt. People from many parts of the world described in Facebook posts how they cried when they heard about the fire. Former U.S. President Barack Obama posted an old photo of himself, his wife and their two daughters lighting candles in the cathedral. “Notre Dame is one of the world’s great treasures, and we’re thinking of the people of France in your time of grief,” Obama said on Twitter. The Vatican said Pope Francis “has seen with shock and sadness the news of the terrible fire that has devastated the Cathedral of Notre Dame, symbol of Christianity in France and in the world.” Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of

New York, prayed at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan for intercession. “God preserve this splendid house of prayer, and protect those battling the blaze,” Dolan said in a statement. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres tweeted that he’s “horrified,” calling the cathedral “a unique example of world heritage.” In Russia, the Russian Orthodox Church’s secretary for inter-Christian relations Hieromonk Stefan called the fire “a tragedy for

the entire Christian world and for all who appreciate the cultural significance of this temple,” the state news agency RIA-Novosti reported: On Twitter, Trump suggested using planes to drop water on the flames. France’s Civil Security agency said that wasn’t feasible. “All means are being used, except for waterbombing aircrafts which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral,” the agency tweeted.

After IS war, Iraq seeks to reclaim status in Arab world By ZEINA KARAM and QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA Associated Press

BAGHDAD — After decades of conflict, Iraq is seeking to reclaim a leadership role and status in the Arab world with a centrist policy and a determination among the country’s top leaders to maintain good relations with both Iran and the United States. A flurry of recent diplomatic activity and highprofile visits to the Iraqi capital, including this month’s re-opening of a Saudi Consulate in Baghdad — for the first time in nearly 30 years — points to a new era of openness as the nation sheds its war image and re-engages with the world. “Iraq is coming back to the neighborhood,” President Barham Salih told The Associated Press in a nearly hour-long interview last month. The veteran politician laid out a vision centered on an “Iraq First” policy, saying his country can no longer afford to be caught in regional disputes. “For almost four decades Iraq was the do-

main in which everybody pursued their agenda at the expense of the Iraqi people. It’s time we say we need a new political order … in which Iraq must be an important pillar,” Salih said. Iraq has emerged from a ruinous three-year war against the Islamic State group and faces the mammoth task of reconciling, rebuilding and returning tens of thousands of displaced to their homes. And while the extremists’ territorial “caliphate” has been defeated in Iraq and Syria, the militants have now shifted to an insurgency campaign of tar-

geted assassinations, car bombings, and suicide attacks. The issue of Iranbacked Shiite militias who fought IS alongside Iraqi security forces poses a challenge to the government’s central authority, and the country’s oil-based economy is suffering from wide-scale corruption. “Iraq’s path to reclaiming a leadership role in the Arab world will depend on how successful its leaders are in tackling security and economic challenges at home,” Randa Slim, a senior fellow at the Washington-based

Middle East Institute wrote recently. Amid rapidly escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran, Iraq also needs to maintain a delicate balance with the two as Baghdad has strong ties with both countries. The dynamics are complex. The Shiite-majority country lies on the fault line between Shiite Iran and the mostly Sunni Arab world, led by powerhouse Saudi Arabia, and has long been a theater in which Saudi-Iran rivalry for regional supremacy played out. Relations have been particularly frosty with Riyadh, which broke relations with Baghdad following Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990 and never really warmed much as Iraq was increasingly pulled into Iran’s orbit in later years. Iraq needs much help and investment to rebuild its cities — something it can only get from oil- and gas-rich Gulf countries, including Saudi Arabia. But it can also ill afford to alienate Iran, which holds enormous political and military sway in Iraq through powerful militias and pro-Iran politicians.

Trump suggests he’s moving forward with sanctuary city plan

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump suggested Monday that his threat to ship migrants to so-called sanctuary cities is taking effect, even though it remains unclear whether such a plan is feasible. “Those Illegal Immigrants who can no longer be legally held (Congress must fix the laws and loopholes) will be, subject to Homeland Security, given to Sanctuary Cities and States!” Trump tweeted just days after aides insisted the plan had been shelved. Neither the White House nor Department of Homeland Security immediately

responded to requests for comment Monday. And it’s unclear whether DHS has taken any steps to implement the controversial plan. Lawyers there had previously told the White House that the idea was unfeasible and a misuse of funds. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is already strapped for cash. Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, had said during a pair of Sunday show appearances that the idea was just one option under consideration. “Whether or not it moves forward, that’s yet to be determined,” she said on Fox, acknowledging that the idea had been rejected by DHS lawyers several times. “The president heard the

Around the World

idea, he likes it, so - well, we’re looking to see if there are options that make it possible and doing a full and thorough and extensive review.,” she said on ABC. At the same time, Democrats on Monday asked the White House and agency officials for internal documents on the administration’s deliberations on its proposal to send detained migrants to “sanctuary cities” — cities and districts that don’t cooperate with federal immigration officials and which are mostly Democratic strongholds. “Not only does the administration lack the legal authority to transfer detainees in this manner, it is shocking that the president and senior administration officials are even considering manipulating release decisions for purely political reasons,” read the letter , which was signed by three House committee chairmen. The letter said the plan seemed aimed at targeting Democratic areas “in a bizarre and unlawful attempt to score political points,” citing news reports. The proposal was rejected twice by administration officials, but Trump has defended the idea. “The USA has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immi-

grants transferred to Sanctuary Cities,” Trump tweeted Saturday as part of his larger push to tighten immigration laws and try to stop the flow of migrants across the southern border. The plan comes as the administration has said it’s been overwhelmed by a flood of migrant families, largely from Central America, attempting to cross the southwestern border. The U.S. Border Patrol said the number of families apprehended in March, 53,000, set a new record, though Democrats say the administration is worsening the problem by aggressively detaining people caught entering illegally and limiting the number of applicants for refugee status who are processed. The letter requests all relevant documents from Nov. 1, 2018, through Monday. It asks for them by May 3. The letter was sent by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.; Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md.; and Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. It was sent to Mick Mulvaney, White House acting chief of staff, and Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary of the Homeland Security Department.

FRANKFURT, Germany — German prosecutors charged former Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn and four others with fraud in the emissions cheating scandal that has helped turn many Europeans against diesel engines and accelerated the push toward electric cars. Prosecutors said Monday that Winterkorn knew about the scheme since at least May 2014 and failed to put a stop to it. That contradicted his claim that he didn’t learn about it until shortly before U.S. investigators announced it in September 2015. Winterkorn resigned as CEO five days later. VW has admitted installing software in its diesel cars that turned on pollution controls when vehicles were being tested and switched them off during everyday driving. That made it look as if the cars met tough U.S. limits on harmful pollutants known as nitrogen oxides. In all, some 11 million cars worldwide were equipped with the illegal software. Prosecutors said the defendants — all top Volkswagen managers — were part of a deception that started in 2006. The 71-year-old Winterkorn and the others, whose names were not released, face six months to 10 years in prison if convicted of aggravated fraud involving serious losses. Other charges include unfair competition and breach of trust. Prosecutors said the defendants could also be forced to forfeit sales bonuses ranging from around $340,000 to $12.45 million. Winterkorn is already under indictment in the U.S. on charges of fraud and conspiracy to violate the Clean Air Act and could get up to 20 years in prison. But he cannot be extradited from Germany to the U.S. Winterkorn’s attorney, Felix Doerr, said that the defense could not comment on the German case because prosecutors had not provided adequate opportunity to review the case files. Doerr said prosecutors turned over seven DVDs with hundreds of file folders of material on April 5.

Complaint: Man went to Mall of America intending to kill MINNEAPOLIS — The man charged with throwing a 5-year-old boy off a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America told police he was angry at being rejected by women at the Minnesota mall and was “looking for someone to kill” when he went there last week, according to a criminal complaint Monday. Emmanuel Aranda, 24, of Minneapolis, is charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder in Friday’s attack . The child plunged almost 40 feet and is fighting for his life in a Minneapolis hospital with head trauma and multiple broken bones. Aranda has two past convictions for assaults at the mall, both in 2015, including one in which he threw a glass of water and glass of tea at a woman who refused to buy him something. Aranda at one point was banned from the mall. Court records show that Aranda had been ordered to undergo psychological evaluation or treatment after the earlier mall assaults. The boy’s mother told police that Aranda came up very close to her group as they stood outside the Rainforest Cafe restaurant. She said she asked him if they were in his way and should move, and he picked up the child without warning and threw him off the balcony, according to the complaint. Police caught Aranda on a light rail train at the mall waiting for it to leave. They said he admitted throwing the child from the balcony and said he had come to the mall a day earlier seeking to kill someone but it did not “work out.” Aranda originally said he planned to kill an adult before choosing the child instead, the complaint said. “Defendant indicated he had been coming to the Mall for several years and had made efforts to talk to women in the Mall, but had been rejected,” and the rejection caused him to lash out and be aggressive,” the complaint said. The child’s family has asked for privacy. A GoFundMe page set up for the child, named Landen, had attracted nearly $600,000 in donations as of Monday.

US measles count up to 555, with most new cases in New York NEW YORK — U.S. measles cases have surged again, and are on pace to set a record for most illnesses in 25 years. Health officials on Monday said 555 measles cases have been confirmed so far this year, up from 465 as of a week ago. While 20 states have reported cases, New York has been the epicenter. Nearly two-thirds of all cases have been in New York, and 85% of the latest week’s cases came from the state. Most of the New York cases have been unvaccinated people in Orthodox Jewish communities. The 2019 tally is already the most since 2014, when 667 were reported. The most before that was 963 cases in 1994. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all children get two doses of measles vaccine, which is 97% effective. Other states reporting measles cases this year include Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oregon, Texas and Washington. After the CDC issued its report Monday morning, Iowa officials said they too had seen a case. Also on Monday, the World Health Organization reported that globally there are four times as many measles cases so far this year as there were at the same time last year. Over the last year, the largest numbers have been in Ukraine, Madagascar and India, with each reporting more than 60,000 cases. — The Associated Press

How many more majors can Woods win? By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

AUGUSTA, Ga. — No comeback by Tiger Woods was ever going to be complete without a major. Now the question becomes how many more he can win. So much appeal of that red shirt beneath a green jacket involved looking back at all Woods had to overcome to reach that moment — a Masters champion once again — that so many thought would never happen. The fourth surgery to rebuild his left knee. The private affairs that became public, shattering his image. The balky back that required four more surgeries, the last one out of desperation because he could barely walk, much less play golf. And a new generation of stars he inspired who were younger, stronger and capable. That’s why Woods celebrated his 15th major like never before — fist pumps without a club in his hand, because he couldn’t help himself walking off the 18th green. “Overwhelming,” he said with

a voice still hoarse from all that screaming. He went 28 majors over 11 years without winning, and no sooner did he stretch his arms into that familiar green jacket — “Ah, it fits,” he said in Butler Cabin — was he asked about the 18 majors Jack Nicklaus won to set the gold standard in golf. “I don’t know if he’s worried or not,” Woods said. “I’m sure he’s home just chilling and watching.” Whether the record is in play, Nicklaus can expect plenty of questions. For years, he could rarely get through any conversation without someone asking him whether he thought Woods could top his mark. “I thought for a long time that he was going to win again,” Nicklaus said Sunday night on Golf Channel. “The next two majors are at Bethpage, where he has won, and at Pebble Beach, where he has won. So, he has got me shaking in my boots, guys.” The last part was delivered in jest. The first part was factual. Woods winning his fifth Masters was not entirely out of the

blue. He capped the year of his great comeback last year by winning the Tour Championship in typical Tiger fashion, by building a lead on a tough, fast course at East Lake and not giving anyone much of a chance to catch him. He also briefly led Sunday in the British Open, and was one shot behind on the back nine at the PGA Championship. “The win at East Lake was a big confidence booster for me because I had come close last year a couple times,” Woods said. “Still have to get it across the finish line, and I didn’t quite do it.” So, imagine the effect of winning the Masters, especially the way this one played out. Six players had at least a share of the lead at one point on the back nine — four of them major champions — and there was a five-way tie for the lead when the final group was in the 15th fairway. It was anyone’s game until Francesco Molinari, who earlier hit 8-iron in Rae’s Creek on the 12th hole for double bogey, hit a wedge off a tree limb and into the water on the par-5 15th that led to double bogey.

76ers even series PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ben Simmons got an earful from the Philly crowd. With the same 76ers fans Simmons put on blast for booing in the playoff opener now going wild in Game 2, Simmons cupped a hand to his right ear just like Allen Iverson’s signature move to spur the cheers even louder. And he did it with Iverson rooting on the Sixers from courtside. Simmons had 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds and the Philadelphia 76ers had an answer for the pesky Brooklyn Nets in a 145-123 win to even their Eastern Conference playoff series Monday night. Simmons had a disastrous Game 1 , on the court (nine points) and from a PR perspective after he criticized fans for booing during a game the Sixers were never really in. He backtracked the next day at practice and never gave another 20,591

fans a chance to do anything but roar in approval in Game 2. Simmons flashed the AllStar form that helped lead the Sixers to 51 wins, and was aggressive from tipoff. He used his size and speed to attack the lane and scored 16 points in the half — and then put the game away in the third. The Sixers busted the game open with a 14-0 run to start the second half and then stretched the lead to 20 on a Simmons steal and fastbreak basket. With a packed house standing, Simmons got a massive ovation when he cupped his hand to his right ear just like Iverson did in his prime. Iverson and former Sixers teammate Dikembe Mutombo attended the game and tossed T-shirts into the crowd. Had Mutombo played in this one, the Nets surely would have received one of his signature finger wags. The Nets collapsed in the

Hachimura turns pro SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Gonzaga star forward Rui Hachimura has declared for the NBA draft. The junior said Monday he will hire an agent as he pursues a professional career. The 6-foot-8 native of Japan led Gonzaga in scoring this season with 19.7 points per game while shooting 59% from the field.

second half, outplayed and overmatched much as expected by pundits and bookmakers (they were 7.5-point Game 2 underdogs). “We expect a haymaker,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said before the game. “We know it’s coming. They’re too good, too talented. too well coached. It’s coming. It’s going to be how we react.” Not well. Joel Embiid shook off another game-time decision to play through tendinitis in his left knee and delivered after a sluggish Game 1. Embiid scored 13 points in the third as the Sixers raced to a 29-point lead. On a minutes restriction, Embiid had some unexpected help from popular backup Boban Marjanovic. He scored 14 points in the first half (only Simmons had more with 16) and let the Sixers find a comfort level on offense with Embiid out for long stretches.

And then it became Woods’ game — a two-putt birdie to take the lead, an 8-iron that rolled down the slope next to the hole for a signature moment at this Masters. “Well, I can win majors now,” Woods said with a laugh. The PGA Championship is a month away at Bethpage Black, where Woods was dominant as ever in going wire-to-wire in the 2002 U.S. Open, and was right there with a chance in the 2009 U.S. Open except for a putter that refused to cooperate. And then it’s the U.S. Open in June at Pebble Beach. If the Masters is the most memorable of his 15 majors, Pebble Beach remains his greatest performance. Woods won there in 2000 by a record 15 shots, even with a triple bogey in the third round. Ten years later, he tied for fourth at the U.S. Open at Pebble, three shots behind. The courses are familiar. Woods is familiar with winning majors. But it’s not that simple. Woods was 24 when he won the U.S. Open at Pebble, and 26 when we won at Bethpage Black. Now he’s 43. As dynamic as this Masters was

for Woods, it was hard work and he needed help — from Molinari on the 12th and 15th holes, from a couple of good bounces out of the trees. That’s not unusual. Every major champion needs a break or two. Getting to 18 is only easier because Woods is one major closer, a conversation caddie Joe LaCava said they have shared. “We’re on 14 and I said, ‘Let’s get to 15.’ You can’t be on 14 and thinking about 18,” LaCava said. “But now we can start talking about 16. So we’re getting closer.” Nicklaus can only watch and admire, which he has done all along. And part of him is cheering. “I don’t ever pull against anybody,” Nicklaus said. “Nobody wants their record to be broken. But I certainly wouldn’t want Tiger to be hurt and not to be able to do it. Of course, he is now pretty healthy and playing well. I wish him well, I always wish the guys well and I want them to play their best.” That’s what Nicklaus saw at Augusta National. And that’s probably what everyone will expect from Woods the rest of the year.

Healthy Luck ready to go INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck tossed around more dance moves than footballs this offseason. He loved every minute of it. So when the star quarterback returned to the Indianapolis Colts complex Monday, he was rested, recharged and ready to start offseason workouts. “I finally got a chance to get away,” Luck said after the initial welcome back team meeting. “I talked to (general manager) Chris (Ballard) about that a little bit. He sort of challenged me to turn my mind off. It took a while, but I did get away. I feel refreshed. It was a very nice offseason.” At least it was different. Luck didn’t throw in either of the two previous offseasons, but not by choice. Instead, he followed doctor’s orders while recovering from

surgery on his throwing shoulder. This time, Luck opted for a well-deserved break after perhaps the best season of his pro career. Plus, Luck had other plans. After dating Stanford gymnast Nicole Pechanec for nearly a decade, the couple finally got married last month in the Czech Republic. “Not much has changed besides a ring on the finger and she’s got great insurance now,” Luck cracked. “It’s awesome. It was the best day of my life and probably the best offseason I ever had.” Luck also had fun shooting a commercial for sports drink company Body Armor. The addition of baseball star Mike Trout helped convince Luck to take a chance. Dressed in 1970s disco garb, Luck and Trout cut it up on the dance floor

— stirring up a conversation about Luck’s groovy moves. He even heard from Stanford coach David Shaw, who emailed that his children rewound the commercial multiple times when they first saw it. “My initial reaction to just about everything is no,” Luck said. “Then I thought about it and talked to my agent. He said Mike Trout was interested and I admire him very much. Then thought about it and - why not? I think I feel much more comfortable making fun of myself than trying to be cool.” He wasn’t the only Colts player to try his hand at performing. All-Pro guard Quenton Nelson posted a video on Instagram of himself, bare-chested, mimicking the moves from a Cardi B video. The rapper and fans weren’t the only ones who were watching.

Long Beach race sets standard in promotion


ouse of Pistachios was a mom-and-pop startup launched in 1984 by a Southern California family trying to hawk homemade nuts, mints, candies, fruits and chews. As the tiny company grew, the family loaded their wares and traveled up and down the West Coast. One of the first events they hit was the Grand Prix of Long Beach. The annual four-day downtown festival features IndyCar and other series racing through the streets as fans ramble through the convention center eyeing classic cars, booths of racing memorabilia, and, of course, chocolate peanuts and tequila-flavored pistachios. House of Pistachios has grown so big that the bulk of its business is now done through exporting. But when Viraj Sehgal and his brother took over for their parents, they kept coming back to the same booth in the same high-trafficked area at the Grand Prix, just steps from where onlookers crowd to watch Robby Gordon’s popular Stadium Super Series prepare to race. “The profit margin from coming here is next to nothing,” Sehgal told The Associated Press. “But my family has been coming

here for 22 years, so we come for our customers and to carry on the tradition. There’s just something about the Grand Prix of Long Beach that makes us come back year after year.” That way of thinking has turned the event, now in its 45th year, into the second-most prestigious race on the IndyCar calendar, behind only the Indianapolis 500. Alexander Rossi became just the eighth driver to win more than once at Long Beach when he demolished the field by more than 20 seconds on Sunday. Rossi’s performance was flawless, and more than an hour after he took the checkered flag, he used his scooter to weave through the venue past the thousands of party-goers still dancing along to the live music, crowding around televisions to watch the support race that followed the IndyCar event or browsing vendor booths and food trucks. The days of selling a ticket to watch cars go round and round and tossing in a musical act and some merchandise trailers are gone for any series trying to attract new fans. It just isn’t enough anymore. If promoters want people to come to their events, Long Beach is a case study on the amenities

I n T he P its J enna F ryer needed to create an event within an event that has maintained its crown jewel status for nearly 50 years. Long Beach, after all, is the unicorn of motorsport events in that its crowd has grown while events pretty much everywhere else are still trying to stop the slide. Long Beach organizers say a three-day crowd of 185,000 attended last year’s race, the most since 2000. Attendance totals were not yet available for this past weekend, in which IndyCar, IMSA, Pirelli World Challenge, Historic IMSA GTO, Stadium Super Trucks and Motegi Racing Super Drift Challenge all raced around the 1.968-mile, 11-turn temporary road course. IndyCar races in front of hundreds of thousands of fans each May at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Still, Rossi noted that he was aware of the Long Beach crowd during his driver introduction lap around the track and he claimed

runner-up Josef Newgarden took a peek into the temporary grandstands during the race itself. “Who knows if this is true but he said to Scott Dixon and I, ‘I was looking around during the race, and no one left. They must have enjoyed it.’ Good for him,” Rossi said. “I was not spectating on the spectators, but yes, it’s an amazing event.” Long Beach has established itself on the SoCal entertainment calendar, thanks to 45 years of date equity. A three-day general admission ticket is $95 (plus one free child admission); a guaranteed seat in the grandstands for all three days is $147 for the best rows and a three-day parking pass at the marina costs $50, though the event is walkable. The “celebrities” of the IndyCar Series can be spotted in nearly any restaurant or socializing in hotel lobbies. “This is a really cool race for my family, my dad moved to L.A. from England in like 1980 or something and this is the first race he ever took my mom to,” said IndyCar driver Spencer Pigot. “My dad has been to, I don’t know, 20 or 30 of these races. It’s cool to have that kind of family tie, that this is a special event for me and

my parents.” It has taken nearly five decades for Long Beach to build this event, which for 40 years hosted a Toyota-sponsored celebrity race that once featured Walter Payton, Mary-Lou Retton, Josh Brolin, Donny Osmond, Jason Bateman, Lorenzo Lamas, Ted Nugent, Bruce Jenner, Gene Hackman and James Brolin. That event ended after 2016 and Toyota closed the chapter on its 39-year-run as title sponsor last season. Acura, an arm of Toyotarival Honda, jumped at the opportunity to back an event that basically only needs the lights flipped on. Acura immediately changed all the signage, using heavy blues in its branding to differentiate from 39 years of red Toyota signs. “There’s some familiarity, I’m sure. It is a racetrack. But over time we would like to amplify, do different things, do new things,” said Jon Ikeda, Acura vice president and brand officer. “We want to take whatever is new that we can bring in and enhance the whole experience.” That is the approach track operators and its partners need to take at motorsports venues across the country.

Maple Leafs take 2-1 series lead on Bruins By The Associated Press

TORONTO — Auston Matthews scored his first goal of the playoffs and set up another as the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Monday night to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarterfinal. Andreas Johnsson, also with a goal and an assist, and Trevor Moore provided the rest of the offense for Toronto. Frederik Andersen made 34 saves. David Krejci and Charlie Coyle scored for Boston. Tuukka Rask stopped 31 shots in front of a crowd of 19,611. The Maple Leafs won the series opener 4-1 last Wednesday in Boston before losing by the same score Saturday. Game 4 is

Wednesday night in Toronto. Less than an hour before puck drop, the Maple Leafs learned center Nazem Kadri had been suspended for the rest of the series for his vicious cross-check to the head of Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk in the third period of Game 2. This one was scoreless following a spirited first period in which the Maple Leafs upped their physical play after getting dominated in Game 2. But the offensive floodgates opened with five goals in the second. Toronto took a 1-0 lead at 2:38 when Moore poked a loose puck home for his first career playoff goal after Morgan Rielly’s initial shot rattled around between Rask’s pads. The Maple

Leafs’ fourth line of Moore, Frederik Gauthier and Tyler Ennis were effective all night, with a couple of grinding shifts in the offensive zone. Boston replied 52 seconds later when Krejci chipped a bouncing puck past Andersen with DeBrusk also on the doorstep. Rask stopped John Tavares later in the period, but the Maple Leafs center was checked into the Bruins goalie by defenseman Charlie McAvoy. Rask went tumbling backward, but stayed in the game after stretching out his neck and left shoulder. Matthews put Toronto back in front just 12 seconds after David Backes was whistled for high-sticking on Kasperi Kapanen, taking

a feed from Johnsson and burying his first beyond an outstretched Rask to send the crowd into a frenzy at 10:12. Mitch Marner, who scored twice in Game 1 but was held in check along with most of his teammates Saturday, made the initial play to Johnsson off the offensive zone draw. Hurricanes 5, Capitals 0 RALEIGH, N.C. — Rookie forward Warren Foegele had two goals and an assist, Petr Mrazek earned his fourth career postseason shutout and the Carolina Hurricanes won their first home playoff game in a decade, routing the Washington Capitals 5-0 on Monday night.

Cherono, Degefa win Boston By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — Two-time Boston Marathon champion Lelisa Desisa turned onto Boylston Street with a sliver of a lead, leaning in front of two other runners with the finish line in sight. Unfortunately for him, one of them was the fastest man in the field. Lawrence Cherono needed every bit of his speed to outkick Desisa in a sprint to the tape on Monday, passing him just steps away from the finish line to win the 123rd Boston Marathon in 2 hours, 7 minutes 57 seconds. Desisa, who won in 2015 and 2013, the year the race was overshadowed by a bombing at the finish line, eased up after realizing he was beaten and finished 2 seconds back. Kenneth Kipkemoi was third, another 8 seconds behind, one of seven Kenyans in the top 10. “It was no man’s race to win,” said Cherono, who had won in Seville, Prague, Honolulu and twice in Amsterdam but never in a major marathon before. “I kept on focusing. And at the end, I was the winner. I’m so grateful, so happy.” Worknesh Degefa broke away from defending champion Des Linden and the rest of the women’s pack in the Framingham flats and ran alone for the last 20 miles to claim the $150,000 first prize and a gilded olive wreath from Marathon, Greece. The 28-year-old Ethiopian, who set a national record while finishing second in Dubai less than three months

ago, won in 2:23:31. Kenya’s Edna Kiplagat was second, reducing a gap of more than two minutes to 42 seconds at the finish. American Jordan Hasay was third and Linden was fifth. “Seeing Degefa go out — you know her ability, you know what she’s done and you wonder how it translates to this course,” Linden said. “But when she starts putting down those super quick miles, you say ‘All right, this is her race to lose.’ She becomes the outlier and you let her just go and hope that she might come back.” She didn’t. Instead, she became the eighth Ethiopian woman to win the race and the third in seven years. A half marathon specialist, Degefa had never seen the Boston course before Monday. “Last year, I watched all the marathon coverage,” she said. “I kept that in my mind.” One year after an icy rain and a near-gale headwind resulted in the slowest winning times in four decades, race organizers again prepared for the foul New England weather. But overnight thunderstorms moved on before the runners left Hopkinton; the sun even made an appearance about halfway through. Linden took advantage of last year’s storm to splash her way to the first win for an American woman since 1985. But with conditions back to normal, so were the results: East Africans from Kenya and Ethiopia dominating the podiums. At the 30K mark the lead pack was still close to a dozen and included three of the last four cham-

pions: Desisa, 2016 winner Geoffrey Kirui and ‘17 champ Lemi Berhanu Hayle. “I was afraid of the guy who won two years ago. After he dropped out, I decided to win,” said Desisa, who did not finish in either of the last two years. “I tried at the last, I saw (Cherono) suddenly, then I couldn’t control the pace.” A field of 30,000 runners followed the elites, ditching their trash bags and ponchos on the Hopkinton Green before embarking on the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton to Copley Square. It’s the first time the race has been run on April 15 since the 2013 attacks; officials held a ceremony at 2:49 p.m. to honor those killed and maimed by the two pressure cooker bombs that exploded near the finish line. Daniel Romanchuk, 20, became the youngest-ever men’s wheelchair champion in Boston, finishing in 1:21:36 for the fastest time ever for an American. Manuela Schar won the women’s wheelchair race for the second time, adding it to her titles in in Berlin, Chicago, New York and Tokyo. If she wins in London in two weeks, she will have swept the World Marathon Major series. “I was just really happy that the weather turned out to be actually really nice,” said Schar, who set a course record in 2017. “When we drove to that starting line, it looked really really bad and I was worried because last year was still in our heads, and I had a really bad experience last year. Today I would say (was) unfinished business.”

Orioles cruise past Red Sox BOSTON (AP) — Chris Davis knows his homer went a lot further than teammate Dwight Smith Jr.’s two-run shot. He also knows he’ll have his time to gloat. Smith hooked his homer into the first row of seats down the right field line and drove in four, leading the Baltimore Orioles past the Red Sox 8-1 Monday in Boston’s annual Patriots’ Day game.

“He’s been really doing well, there’s no reason to talk,” said Davis, smiling. “I’ll wait a little bit and talk.” Davis also had a tworun shot — estimated just short of 100 feet longer than Smith’s — projected at 408 feet into the right-field bleachers. “Honestly, I had no clue if it was going to get over,” Smith said of his drive.

“Whoever caught it might have helped me out, honestly. A homer is a homer. I’ll take it anyway.” Asked about Davis’ shot, Smith said: “He crushed it. That’s his name — ‘Crush’ — for a reason.” Renato Núñez had three hits with an RBI single for Baltimore, which salvaged a split of the four-game series. It had lost nine of its previous 11 games and was 4-21

in its last 25 against Boston. Davis halted a record 0-for-54 stretch Saturday, the longest ever for a position player. He started the season 0 for 33. It was the 60th straight year the Red Sox were scheduled to play on the holiday. The defending World Series champs completed a 3-3 homestand and have yet to win one of their five series this season.

Dougie Hamilton also scored two goals, Brock McGinn had a late goal and an assist and Jaccob Slavin had two assists as the rapid-fire Hurricanes outshot Washington 45-18 to cut the defending Stanley Cup champions’ lead to 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Playing with just 10 forwards after losing two to injuries in the first period, Carolina effectively rolled with three lines the rest of the way and fed off an amped-up crowd releasing 10 years of pent-up frustration with every hit. Mrazek finished with 18 saves in his fifth career playoff victory — the last four have been shutouts. Braden Holtby stopped 40 shots for Washington,

which had its six-game postseason winning streak snapped. The Capitals were shut out in the playoffs for the first time since 2017. They won all four regular-season meetings with their longtime division rivals — first in the old Southeast, now in the Metropolitan — before winning the first two games of this series on home ice. The first postseason game in Raleigh since 2009 — when Carolina was swept by Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference final — was a physical, borderline violent affair, headlined by Alex Ovechkin’s first career playoff fight, one that sent Hurricanes rookie Andrei Svechnikov’s head crashing onto the ice and knocked him out of the game.

Today in History Today is Tuesday, April 16, the 106th day of 2019. There are 259 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 16, 2007, in one of America’s worst school attacks, a college senior killed 32 people on the campus of Virginia Tech before taking his own life. On this date: In 1789, President-elect George Washington left Mount Vernon, Virginia, for his inauguration in New York. In 1862, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln signed a bill ending slavery in the District of Columbia. The Confederacy conscripted all white men between the ages of 18 to 35. In 1889, comedian and movie director Charles Chaplin was born in London. In 1945, during World War II, a Soviet submarine in the Baltic Sea torpedoed and sank the MV Goya, which Germany was using to transport civilian refugees and wounded soldiers; it’s estimated that up to 7,000 people died. In 1947, the cargo ship Grandcamp, carrying ammonium nitrate, blew up in the harbor in Texas City, Texas; a nearby ship, the High Flyer, which was carrying ammonium nitrate and sulfur, caught fire and exploded the following day; the blasts and fires killed nearly 600 people. At the South Carolina statehouse, financier Bernard M. Baruch declared: “Let us not be deceived -- we are today in the midst of a cold war.” In 1962, New Orleans Archbishop Joseph Rummel excommunicated three local Roman Catholics for fighting racial integration of parochial schools. In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” in which the civil rights activist responded to a group of local clergymen who had criticized him for leading street protests; King defended his tactics, writing, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” In 1972, Apollo 16 blasted off on a voyage to the moon with astronauts John W. Young, Charles M. Duke Jr. and Ken Mattingly on board. In 1986, dispelling rumors he was dead, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi (MOO’-ah-mar gah-DAH’-fee) appeared on television to condemn the U.S. raid on his country and to say that Libyans were “ready to die” defending their nation. In 1996, Britain’s Prince Andrew and his wife, Sarah, the Duchess of York, announced they were in the process of divorcing. In 2003, the Bush administration lowered the terror alert level from orange to yellow, saying the end of heavy fighting in Iraq had diminished the threat of terrorism in the United States. In 2008, the Supreme Court upheld, 7-2, the most widely used method of lethal injection, allowing states to resume executions after a sevenmonth halt. Pope Benedict XVI was welcomed by President George W. Bush as only the second pontiff to visit the White House (after John Paul II) and the first in 29 years. Ten years ago: President Barack Obama issued a statement saying CIA officials who’d used harsh interrogation tactics during the Bush administration would not be prosecuted; the president traveled to Mexico, where he pledged to help the country in its battle against drugs and violence. The crew of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama, who’d thwarted pirates off the Somali coast, returned to the U.S.; ship’s captain Richard Phillips, held hostage for five days, arrived in Kenya aboard the USS Bainbridge. U.N. nuclear experts who’d been ordered to leave by North Korea departed the country. The Cleveland Indians ruined the Yankees’ first game at their new stadium by beating New York 10-2. Five years ago: More than 300 people, mostly students, died when a South Korean ferry, the Sewol, sank while en route from Incheon to the resort island of Jeju; 172 people survived. One year ago: The New York Times and The New Yorker won the Pulitzer Prize for public service for breaking the Harvey Weinstein scandal with reporting that galvanized the #MeToo movement. Rap star Kendrick Lamar was awarded the Pulitzer for music, becoming the first non-classical or non-jazz artist to win the prize. American pastor Andrew Brunson went on trial in Turkey in a case that strained ties between that country and the United States; he denied accusations that he aided terror groups or spied against Turkey. (Brunson was convicted but sentenced to time served and was freed from house arrest in October to return to the United States.) Actor Harry Anderson, best known for playing an off-the-wall judge working the night shift of a Manhattan court room on the comedy series “Night Court,” was found dead in his North Carolina home; he was 65. Today’s Birthdays: Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI is 92. Actor Peter Mark Richman is 92. Singer Bobby Vinton is 84. Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II is 79. Basketball Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is 72. Former Massachusetts first lady Ann Romney is 70. NFL coach Bill Belichick is 67. Rock singer and former politician Peter Garrett is 66. Actress Ellen Barkin is 65. Actor Michel Gill is 59. Rock musician Jason Scheff (Chicago) is 57. Singer Jimmy Osmond is 56. Rock singer David Pirner (Soul Asylum) is 55. Actor-comedian Martin Lawrence is 54. Actor Jon Cryer is 54. Rock musician Dan Rieser is 53. Actor Peter Billingsley is 48. Actor Lukas Haas is 43. Actress-singer Kelli O’Hara is 43. Actress Claire Foy (TV: “The Crown”) is 35. Figure skater Mirai Nagasu is 26. Actress Sadie Sink is 17. Thought for Today: “The only graceful way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can’t ignore it, top it; if you can’t top it, laugh at it; if you can’t laugh at it, it’s probably deserved.” -- Russell Lynes, American writer (1910-1991).

Girl with asperger’s gets little attention from dad DEAR ABBY: Eight years ago, my mother, then age 86, came to live with me. My life has changed substantially in the last two years, and I need to move to another state. My husband already lives there, and I want to be with him. My mother’s anxieties and Abigail Van Buren fears are what’s holding me back. I have told her she can live with us there, or at a brand-new assisted living facility that’s about to open in the town. Alternatively, she could move back to our hometown where my retired sister lives and stay in an assisted living facility there. Her remaining in this city is not an option because I’m the only person she knows here, and it’s eight hours from where I will be. Conversations with her on this subject are difficult as she prefers to ignore them, choosing only to consider her own needs. Her overall health is manageable, and she’s doing well cognitively. She has not been hospitalized in two years. What do I do? -- TAKING CARE IN FLORIDA

Hints from Heloise


By Leigh Rubin

ence when dealing with a witty, undirected friend. Understand that this person likes the situation the way it is and doesn’t appreciate your criticism. Tonight: Ever playful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Know when to say little and listen more. You might not believe the gems of wisdom that could tumble into your life. You hear many different approaches and ways of thinking. Right now, make no major decisions. Tonight: Be unavailable. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Zero in on what you want. You might feel as though a loved one or child could be a little too distracting. Try to approach each issue on its own merits, not bringing feelings or emotional remnants into the discussion and decision-making. Tonight: Only where the crowds are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Take a stand and stay more in touch with your feelings. You could be in a jam and trying to juggle various facets of a problem. Investigate a suggestion that might be worth going with. Brainstorm with an associate. Tonight: To the wee hours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH What seems clear to you might be incredibly Byzantine to another person. Try not to be overly serious and demanding, as it could affect an important interaction. If you can stay mellow, you’ll open yourself up to positive change. Tonight: Use your sixth sense. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Deal directly with a close associate. You succeed when interacting with others on this level. You can get to the bottom line far more quickly. Don’t allow a feeling of being down to interfere with your actions and words. The feeling will pass. Tonight: Just don’t be alone. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH With the help of a key partner, zero in on what you want. Together, you and your partner make a strong team. A long-term goal that you thought was only a distant possibility could be in sight. Together, you and your partner become far stronger and more capable of manifesting this desire. Tonight: Go with a loved one’s choice. BORN TODAY Singer Dusty Springfield (1939), Pope Benedict XVI (1927), author Ann Romney (1949)


ON THE RIGHT TRACK Dear Heloise: A simple way to clean my sliding glass door track: I pour plain water in the track (a generous amount) and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I take a roll of paper towels and unfurl a good amount onto the track to absorb the water. An old toothbrush can loosen any grime. Caveats: My flooring next to the track is vinyl, not carpet, and gloves are a good idea. Messy? Maybe, but a clean track results, just in time for spring, and no harsh chemicals are used! -- Mary R. in Florida TALLER TOILET Dear Heloise: We read your column daily and find great hints. When remodeling or building a home, think about a ground-floor bedroom and bathroom with a walk-in shower and taller toilet. Even younger folks may have a need after surgery or illness. In our case, my husband and I wanted the extra conveniences following surgery, and the taller toilet came in handy during visits by senior relatives with mobility issues. -- Paula T., Spokane, Wash. WRAP IT UP Dear Heloise: I think all of us have problems using plastic wrap to cover food. A simple solution is to keep it in the freezer until needed. No more sticking together. -- E. Reid, Clear Spring, Md. CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC Dear Readers: When navigating the bus routes in your city, keep this in mind: The direct route usually means fewer stops and a faster trip. Check out the bus system’s website to map out yours. -- Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, April 16, 2019: This year, you make headway toward a long-term goal. You’ll expend a lot of energy manifesting this goal. If single, you might want to devote less time to dating for a while, although you could meet someone of significance. If you’re attached, you and your partner will bond more closely because of your long-term goal. When asked, VIRGO gives you a lot of good ideas. Listen. 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 You could experience a strange tension as you attempt to put a situation together or understand the mechanics of what’s happening. You might be concerned about what’s occurring with a higher-up. Tonight: Unwind. Soak in a hot tub. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH At this point, your creativity soars. Confusion could exist around manifesting some of your great ideas. Reach out for a loved one or a dear friend at a distance. You have very different ways of looking at issues; make those differences positive. Tonight: Kick up your heels. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You might find it difficult to move from one topic to another. You could be focused on one issue and unable deal with others until you find a solution or answer.

DEAR TAKING CARE: Continue moving forward with your plans to relocate to be with your husband. Tell your mother you are giving her the choice of whether to reside with you or near your sister, but make clear she must make up her mind because you need to know whether you will have to accommodate her in your new home. Give her a deadline to let you know her preference, but if she refuses, make sure she understands that by default she’ll be living near your sister. DEAR ABBY: My ex and I went to my senior prom. I paid for everything, from the tickets down to his pocket square. It has been two years since the prom and one year since we broke up. While packing away my prom dress, I realized how great it would be to have the bow tie and pocket square for future wearers as well as for sentimental value. I realize he may have gotten rid of them by now, but would it be wrong to ask for them if he still has them? -- LOOKING BACK AND AHEAD DEAR LOOKING: Wrong? No. Fruitless? Probably.

DEAR ABBY: My husband is more interested in hanging out with his friends than caring about our 11-year-old daughter who has Asperger’s syndrome. She’s a great kid and smart, but she has challenges and needs help. It falls to me to do everything with and for her. I need him to participate more where she’s concerned, but he loses patience with her and with me. He resents having to pay for therapy and music lessons for her (she loves music), but he had no hesitation about buying himself an expensive sports car -- not for us but for him. He’s actually going away for a weekend with his buddies! I’ve thought about marriage counseling, but he isn’t interested. I feel overwhelmed and very alone. Please help. -- LIKE A SINGLE MOM IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR LIKE A SINGLE MOM: I’ll try. Forgive my sarcasm, but it appears you married a real “winner” -- selfish and lacking the compassion and maturity to deal with the challenges your family is facing. Because your husband is unwilling to go with you for marriage counseling, you would benefit from talking to a licensed therapist on your own. When you do, it may give you a broader perspective on what your options are.

ter about two months, though, his voice disappeared. “I told him go home and drink a lot of water,” Goldman said during the Tiny Desk concert. “Eat your vegetables and take care of yourself.” Even without a voice, Dalton kept taking lessons. The two worked on Dalton’s songs while growing closer and closer. Bernie’s daughter, Nicole, was 14 at the time, and Goldman was impressed with their relationship. “His relationship with Nicole reminded me of my relationship with my dad,” Goldman said during the Tiny Desk concert. “My father has always been the person who supported me the most with my music in my life until he died of pancreatic cancer.” After a year of having no voice, and with more troubling symptoms surfacing like trouble swallowing and drooling, Dalton went to a neurologist and was diag-

Some starters have been around for several generations, like the one being used at Addie Camp Train Car Eatery and Wine Bar in Soldotna. The starter comes from one of the restaurant’s cooks, Kiel Nichols, who received the starter from his mom, who got it from a friend of hers, who knew a homesteader named Dick Proenneke from Twin Lakes in Lake Clark National Park. Proenneke was born in 1916, and lived alone for more than 30 years in his cabin on the shores of Twin Lakes. Proenneke’s homestead has since been pre-

All other charges in this case were dismissed.

The topics covered in the training are also taught at the Department of Public Safety Training Academy in Sitka, which DPS Communications Director Megan Peters said all new troopers are required to attend as part of their recruitment. The purpose of this training is to teach troopers based in rural areas how to effectively respond to crimes of domestic violence and sexual assault. “When a trooper works out in rural Alaska, they are frequently responsible for these investigations without back-

up or the immediate ability to talk something through with a coworker or supervisor,” Lt. Rick Roberts said in the press release. “Instead of thinking about what immediate steps have to be taken, they are learning to think in terms of ‘what am I going to need in the next 12 hours?’ With very few resources.” Another focus of the weeklong training was trooper resiliency and mental health. “We want our troopers to know when and how to take care of themselves,” Roberts said in the press re-

lease. “It’s okay to seek out help and accept help. Let’s face it, what our troopers deal with on a daily basis is stressful and often heartbreaking.” Trooper Marco Fischer of Anchor Point was one of the 10 troopers who attended the training, and he spoke on Monday about his takeaway. “A lot of it was a refresher, but I did learn a lot and was able to take some resources back to my team that will help us with these kinds of cases.” Fischer said that he was

given several new investigation tools as part of the training, including a testing kit for sexual assault survivors and a new type of black light used to detect things not readily visible under normal light. Fischer noted that investigating cases of sexual assault and domestic violence is particularly difficult in rural communities because there is often no dedicated department or personnel for these cases. Fischer said that he and other rural troopers have to handle every aspect of the

investigation on their own and added that he is currently handling four such cases in addition to his other responsibilities. Fischer has been a trooper for six years and has been stationed at Anchor Point for the last two years, and he said that even troopers with more than 20 years of experience were able to learn a lot from the weeklong training. Fischer said that more troopers should take advantage of the training. Peters said that similar events are planned for the future.

nosed with bulbar-onset ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. The progressive neurological disorder causes motor neurons to gradually degenerate and eventually die. Dalton was given one to three years to live. “I said, ‘Bernie, what do you want to do with the time you have left on the planet?” Goldman said during the concert. “He said, ‘I want to make a record.’ “But he didn’t say it. He wrote it on a dry erase board.” Goldman continued: “I said, ‘Bernie, how are you going to make a record when you can’t speak and you can’t sing? And you can’t play guitar.’ Because by then, his hands were getting weak. “And he wrote on a pad of paper, ‘I want you to be my voice.’ And I didn’t know what to say.” Dalton persisted, sending handwritten lyrics in the mail even though he had never recorded an album before. Soon, with Dalton’s help, Goldman was putting those words to music and starting a GoFundMe campaign to

provide money to make the album. Bernie and the Believers began recording in June 2017 and “Connection” was released in February 2018. “I’m watching this and I just start crying,” said Rizzo, also a teacher at Nikiski High School, of the Tiny Desk concert. “Oh my gosh, I have to help this guy. “He’s got this 16-year-old daughter (now 17). I’ve been a teacher for 25 years, and having five daughters myself, I thought, ‘How is this kid going to make it in the world?’ Her dad is not going to be around much longer.” Rizzo contacted Goldman and she was also interested in finding a way to help Nicole. “I was so incredibly moved by him reaching out,” Goldman said. Rizzo got an Alaska State Council on the Arts grant to bring the band north for a tour. Grants from the council don’t happen overnight, which explains why Rizzo had to cram this concert into a busy spring entertainment season. Grants from the council

also can’t be used for fundraising, so any proceeds from the concert go into Triumvirate’s general fund, then Nicole will be awarded with one of the many scholarships Triumvirate gives out. “I tend to think about my blessings,” Rizzo said. “My kids had a mom and dad that love them at home. We’ve been able to help all those guys get to college and a lot of kids don’t have that. “Triumvirate often gives scholarships to those kids that don’t have those opportunities.” Nicole has performed with the band in the past, but will not be making the trip to Alaska. Dalton has been unresponsive and is in what Goldman called a “drugged dream state” due to morphine. Goldman said Dalton’s personality always was evident even when he could only communicate by blinking or using an eye gaze device. For him to be totally unresponsive now is very tough on those who are close to him. “She’s grieving and doing her best to find a new nor-

mal,” Goldman said of Nicole. “She’s trying to keep her life as normal as possible and there’s nothing normal about this.” Goldman said Dalton’s deteriorating state is tough for her and the band, but they are pressing on to share Bernie’s music, message, courage and creativity. “It’s never too late to follow your dream, no matter how dire the circumstances,” Goldman said. “Even if you are dying, you can start something you’ve never done before. “He wrote and recorded an album at the same time he was diagnosed with ALS. I think that’s courageous and profound on so many levels. We all have a story to tell as creative people and it’s never, ever, too late to tell that story and follow your passion in life. Life is short, do it now.” The concert will include songs from “Connection,” as well as Goldman’s personal songs and some covers. Dalton’s songs are about his daughter, and also about his views on the world.

“It’s music for the sake of music, not just because he’s a sick guy,” Goldman said. “He’s really a phenomenal songwriter and rocker. “We’re going to have fun at these shows.” Goldman said there are still three GoFundMe campaigns for those wanting to help — Bernie’s Song to keep his music alive, Keep Bernie’s Dream Alive for tour support and Send Bernie Home for medical care. The band also seeks to raise awareness of ALS, in search of a cure or at least better treatment options. The band will also include Daniel Derkman on cello, drums and banjo, Danny Uzilevsky on bass and guitar, and Kevin Glaz on guitar. Tickets to Thursday’s 7 p.m. show at Triumvirate North are $25 for general admission and $35 for balcony and are available at As part of the grant, the band also will play at Alice’s Champagne Palace in Homer on Friday. The Alaska tour also includes MatSu Resort on Wednesday and Williwaw Social in Anchorage on Saturday.

served as a museum and was added to the National Register of Historic Places. His experience has been adapted into a book and into a movie, both titled “Alone in the Wilderness.” “(Proenneke) … walked out and built his own cabin, built all his own tools,” Nichols said. “My mom ended up with it from her friend that knew him and now it’s passed down to me, and now (Addie Camp).” The sourdough starter, which is believed to be at least 50 years old, is used to make a German apple pancake and toast featured on the restaurant’s brunch menu. Lucy’s Market in Soldotna is getting ready to launch a bread program at the end of May when they move to their new location. Of course, sourdough bread will be incorporated into that program. Owner, Kelsey Shields said her

sourdough starter was given to her by “a kind, 80-something-year-old German lady named Marlis.” “She lived in Anchorage and was renting out her basement to the guy I was dating,” Shields said. “Anytime I was in town visiting, Marlis would stop to chat if she saw me. She brought many things with her when she moved to Alaska: a keen eye for real estate, expertise as a dance teacher, and a sourdough starter that supposedly began its life in Germany over 250 years ago.” Shields said the market is excited to have sourdough on their menu. “Long-fermented sourdoughs are easier for our bodies to digest, as the wild yeast and bacteria in the sourdough have already begun to pre-digest the wheat for us, releasing nutrients along the way,” Shields said.

“We love the tradition behind sourdough, the flavor, the texture, and even the challenge of getting to know your starter and how to keep it healthy and productive.” Some sourdough starters are a little younger. “His name is Kevin, and he was born last year,” Jesse Hughes, one of the owners of Three Peaks Mercantile, a local food-centric pop-up shop, said. Hughes was inspired to create her own starter, in the traditional way, as a way to get to the root understanding of how bread is made. “I really wanted to try sourdough and really traditional sourdough,” Hughes said. “Not like the sourdough you buy at the store. I wanted to see what the main difference is and how hard it actually was.” Hughes said Kevin has a personality all his own.

“It’s definitely finicky,” she said. “He definitely has to be fed. When I don’t use him or when I don’t feed him, he’ll act like he’s super hungry.” A local sourdough enthusiast, Lacy Ledahl’s sourdough starter traveled all the way from Europe as well. After falling in love with the science of sourdough, she decided to visit the Sourdough School in England, a center for sourdough education and research. While she was there, she learned all about the process of sourdough. The school even let her take home some of the institution’s starter, which Ledahl said was over a century old. “I had to take it with me on a train from (the village of Northamptonshire) to a hotel in London,” Ledahl said. “The next morning I had to fly to Seattle, and then fly to Anchorage and then to Kenai.

Along the way, I was feeding it and keeping it alive.” Ledahl said she carried the starter in a small, portable vile. When she got home, she married the well-traveled starter with the starter she already had made at home. She calls her new, unique starter Holly. “Thankfully customs didn’t take it,” Ledahl said. “I got to make bread the next day.” Ledahl decided to come back and share that knowledge, and starter with the community. Last Saturday, Ledahl, and fellow sourdough enthusiasts Maria Nalos and Elizabeth Cox hosted a sourdough class at Maggie’s General Store in Kenai. The class discussed the benefits of sourdough, the basics of making a starter and how to incorporate the ingredient into cooking. Class attendees had samples to try and were able to take some of Ledahl’s starter home with them.

‘The Secret Life of Pets’ to become a Universal Studios Hollywood attraction By Hugo Martin Los Angeles Times

A new attraction that takes riders on an adventure through a New York City street scene with a group of unleashed pets will open next year at Universal Studios Hollywood, the park announced last week. The ride, based on the 2016 Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment movie “The Se-

cret Life of Pets,” will put riders on a vehicle that drives on a track to simulate the animal adventure in the Big Apple. The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash ride will replace the Globe Theatre, a now-shuttered venue that could accommodate up to 720 people and had been used for corporate and media events. Universal Studios Hollywood representatives declined to elaborate on

the ride’s technology except to say in a statement that it will combine “live, dimensional and animated characters with hyperrealistic media.” The location of the attraction at the upper lot near the western edge of the park puts it adjacent to two other rides —Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and Super Silly Fun Land —both of which were inspired by the Illumination Entertainment

movie “Despicable Me.” Universal Studios Hollywood has been adding new attractions at a regular pace, starting in 2012, as part of a strategy to capitalize on the strong economy and a growing demand from parkgoers for new experiences. The most recent Universal Studios Hollywood attraction to open, Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest, launched last summer in a theater that uses
