From worms to drones this year’s CFK finalist’s ideas amaze the judges.

Thursday night, Homer’s Austin Cline took first place honors and a $1,600 cash award in the annual Caring for the Kenai environmental and natural disaster preparedness contest. Austin’s proposal to recycle plastic waste into 3D printer filament wowed the crowd and judges at the Kenai Central High School Little Theater. “It’s a simple process that I already have grants for to turn plastics into 3D printing material,” explained

Cline. The CFK essay prompt challenges high school students to respond to the question, “What can I do, invent or create to better care for the environment of the Kenai Peninsula or improve the area’s preparedness for a natural disaster?” The contest, administered by the Challenger Learning Center of Alaska, was assigned this year in Kenai Peninsula freshman biology classrooms,

with one home-school student and at least two high school students entering voluntarily. Taking second place and earning $1,100 was the team of Lindy Guernsey and Akilena Veach from Seward. Lindy and Akilena demonstrated a working drone which they had built at school using 3D printers. The girls use the drone to survey Seward’s floodplains. The girls’ work has supplied the Seward Flood Board

with crucial data to help prevent property damage during flooding events. “We worked with our outward bound program and built the drone then we heard about Caring for the Kenai and our science encouraged us to enter,” said Lindy. “We learned how to fly the drone on a computer simulator after we built it. We’ve flying for three years we’ve been working with younger students so the program will continue

after we graduate,” added Akilena. In third place and claiming a $900 prize was Connections home-school student Anna DeVolld. Anna will be visiting local Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club meetings to share information about the role of pollinators in our ecosystem. As part of her presentation, Anna shared a ‘Pollinator Pack’ she has developed: a cluster of plants which support See CFK, page A2

England takes 1st State Body Building Championship

Heavy metal workouts leads to multiple medals for Soldotna’s Kimmy England.

2009 Soldotna High School graduate Kimmy England has claimed her first State NPC sanctioned Body Building championship. “Judgement Day” was the name of the competition held April 6 in Anchorage. National Physique Committee (NPC) is the largest amateur bodybuilding organization in the United States. Amateur bodybuilders compete in competitions from local to national competitions sanctioned by the NPC. England says she first became interested in bodybuilding when she was a little girl and her father competed in a bodybuilding show. “I saw my dad go through a prep for the competition and got introduced to it without even knowing. Then after graduation I started working out at The Fitness Place and wanted to learn how to use the equipment properly so

I hired Angie Brennan as a trainer. I was one of the few clients she had at that time that wanted to build muscle and she brought the idea of bodybuilding to me,” said England in an interview with the Dispatch. England said she wanted to be stronger. “I was a runner in high school and wasn’t unhealthy but didn’t look healthy so I wanted to build muscle to be stronger and look healthier. When Angie brought up the possibility of bodybuilding to me I looked it up and really liked the look of muscle on women,” she said. It’s a look that doesn’t come easily and takes hours of hard work and dedication according to Kimmy.

“I began training in the summer of 2012. I’ve had some bumps in the road since then and was injured and hurt my back and had a knee surgery in 2015 that slowed down my progress a bit, but since then I’ve been training for bodybuilding working out between five to six days a week with an hour of weights depending on if I’m in my off season or in season and cardio varies,” she said. Bodybuilding is not just about having muscle, it’s also performance and stage presence says England. “In the past my experience has been in women’s figure and this was my first time competing in women’s physique and that is where See ENGLAND, page A2

These packs of plants will also be distributed to Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club members. “I’m also giving educational programs about pollinators to increase awareness of how important they are to our community, our salmon runs and food production. I’ll be using my prize money to fund my pollinator packets. I learned a lot of my computer skills because of my CFK idea,” said 13-yearold DeVolld. Taking fourth place honors and $750 was Homer’s Vianne Sarber. Vianne used her incredible skills in art and graphic design to create a children’s storybook titled “Sophie Saves the Sea.” Vianne plans to publish the book through Kindle. “I’m incredible grateful to Mr. Stineff for assigning CFK to me. I allows me to learn and use my skills to make a difference,” said Sarber. Coming in 5th and winning the $650 prize was Cook Inlet Academy’s Jacob Topp with a catchy (and original) rap, reminding people about “Nice Ice Safety.” The rap, set to Vanilla Ice’s “Ice, Ice Baby,” is designed to be played over the radio and promote a Facebook page with regular ice safety updates. Also from Cook Inlet Academy, the team of Landon Vyhmeister and Josiah Nunn won 6th place and a $550 prize with a video game they devel-

I won my overall championship. I went in knowing I had a decent amount of muscle but didn’t know if my posing would match up against the competition. I was nervous, I hadn’t been on stage since 2015 so it’s been over four years and you just never know about your competition or who will show up, so the main goal when you go up there is to beat yourself. I felt I did well, but I was actually shocked because of the amazing competitors that were there and when I received the sword I really didn’t know what to do with it, my dad laughed and said I looked like She Woman.” The Judgement Day show may just be the beginning of Kimmy’s bodybuilding career. “I have another show coming up in a few weeks called the Emerald Cup it’s huge amateur show with hundreds of competitors and they say if you place in the top two to three in

In the news State considers adding additional terminal for new ferries JUNEAU — Alaska is considering adding another terminal to accommodate the short range of a new class of ferries, officials said. The administration of Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy may propose a new Juneau terminal 30 miles north of an existing terminal for the new Alaska Class ferries, CoastAlaska reported Friday. The terminal proposal is part of a plan to ensure day boats can connect Juneau with Haines and Skagway. The Alaska Class ferry Tazlina is expected to embark upon its maiden voyage next month, but a March 26 Department of Transportation & Public Utilities memo made public Friday says the Tazlina will not be able to make its connections. “There is insufficient time to conduct a round trip from Auke Bay to Haines and Skagway in less than 12 hours’ time,” wrote Kirk Miller, a transportation department engineer.

Fairbanks officials allow use of marijuana at certain stores FAIRBANKS — The city of Fairbanks will allow people to recreationally use marijuana inside the authorized stores where they buy it. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the City Council voted 4-2 Monday in favor of the ordinance, amending the law that previously prohibited on-site marijuana use at retail cannabis stores in the city. The state handed down rules that went into effect earlier this month to allow marijuana use in special sections of stores. The city had postponed action on a measure that would allow on-site consumption so officials could draft a ballot measure on the matter for October's general election. The council voted Monday against taking the issue to the ballot.

Construction season gets underway Kenai

police to purchase new radios

By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

With spring in full effect and summer months right around the corner, construction season has begun for many parts of Alaska, including the Kenai Peninsula. The Alaska Department of Transportation has five major road construction projects on the peninsula slated for this year, with three already underway and two more in the works. DOT Project Engineer Marcus Forkner said on Monday that the overall goal of these projects is improve safety, visibility and traffic flow along some of the peninsula’s major roadways. Forkner also said that the DOT website AlaskaNavigator.org provides an interactive map with each project’s location, a brief description of the projects and their estimated completion date. This map is updated weekly, but

The Kenai City Council approved the purchase of public safety radios at last Wednesday’s council meeting. The Kenai Police Department applied for and received a $100,000 grant through the State of Alaska Department of Public Safety. The grant will go toward purchasing portable radios and accessories for Kenai’s Police Department. In a memo to the city council, Kenai Police Chief David Ross supported the resolution for the sole source purchase for the radios and accessories from Motorola

there is also a dedicated hotline for each project that can be called to provide updates on the projects.

Senators consider competing budget proposals By Alex McCarthy Juneau Empire

Senators polished off their crystal balls Tuesday, trying to take a look at the future of the state under the governor’s budget proposal and under the Legislature’s proposal so far. During Tuesday’s Senate Finance Committee meeting, Sen. Peter Micciche, R-Soldotna, was succinct and straightforward as he broke down the major impacts of the governor’s budget versus the one passed by the House. While the House budget doesn’t include any new taxes for revenue, it does reduce the permanent fund dividend, so it does affect household income. While Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget proposal keeps the PFD high, it will result in a rise in local taxes because the budget proposal shifts many costs from the state to mu-

nicipalities. Cutting state spending for school bond debt reimbursement, for example, will require cities to raise taxes in order

to fund schools at a similar level as before. “It’s not like either one is impact free,” Micciche said.

David Teal, the director of the Legislative Finance Division, concurred with Micciche’s diagnosis. Teal spent a little over an hour

presenting to the committee about the House budget, which proposes about $250 million in cuts compared to the $1.6 billion worth of cuts governor’s proposal. Teal said that based on Legislative Finance projections, the House budget actually addresses many of the governor’s stated budget goals better than the governor’s budget. Two of the Dunleavy administration’s prime objectives in building the budget are not having expenditures exceeding revenue and preserving core functions. According to Legislative Finance projections for the next 10 years, the House’s plan outperforms the governor’s plan on both of these points. “There are no deficits and the core functions are funded at a higher level under the House plan,” See SEN, page A15

Dems clash with Trump officials on subpoenas, tax returns By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The struggle between House Democrats and the Trump administration over investigations intensified Tuesday as a former White House official defied a subpoena

and the Treasury Department ignored a deadline for providing President Donald Trump’s tax returns. Rep. Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said the White House has adopted the “untenable” position that it can ignore requests from

the Democratic majority in the House. “It appears that the president believes that the Constitution does not apply to his White House, that he may order officials at will to violate their legal obligations, and that he may obstruct attempts by Congress to conduct over-

sight,” Cummings said in a statement. Cummings was specifically referring to Carl Kline, a former White House personnel security director, who was subpoenaed by Democrats. Kline did not show up Tuesday for a scheduled de-

position, and Cummings said he is consulting with other lawmakers and staff about scheduling a vote to hold Kline in contempt of Congress. The committee subpoenaed Kline after one of his former subordinates told the panel that dozens of peoSee CLASH, page A3

SeaLife Center rescues newborn sea otter pup By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

The Alaska SeaLife Center admitted their first stranded animal of 2019. The female sea otter pup was admitted April 9, according to a press release from the SeaLife Center. The newborn was floating alone in Kachemak Bay before area fisherman alerted the SeaLife Center, a nonprofit organization focused on marine mammal rehabilitation.

Major issues unresolved in session’s final weeks By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

The biggest issues heading into this year’s legislative session remain unresolved in the session’s final weeks, with Gov. Mike Dunleavy facing resistance to pieces of his agenda. Lawmakers have yet to finalize a budget. The size of the check residents will get this year from the state’s oil-wealth fund, the Alaska Permanent Fund, is unsettled, as is the debate over the program’s future. The Republican governor wants lawmakers to pass his

package of bills related to crime and act on proposed constitutional amendments pitched as part of his fiscal plan. But he faces pushback, with a key House member wanting to focus initially on issues related to public safety with the broadest level of support and other lawmakers arguing that the push for constitutional changes may not be realistic. While voters years ago approved a 90-day legislative session, that mark came and went with little acknowledgment earlier this month. Legislative leadSee FINAL, page A2

ers early on cast doubt on whether their work could be completed in 90 days, with Dunleavy releasing his budget a month into session and the House failing to organize until around that time. The constitution permits 121-day regular sessions, with an option to extend for another 10. The 121-day mark would be hit May 15. Budget and dividend The version of the state operating budget passed by the House and the one the Senate is working on reject the level of cuts proposed by Dunleavy. The Housepassed budget did not include a permanent fund dividend amount, with House leadership saying that issue would be debated separately, later. Debate over the dividend snarled the House’s deliberations on the budget last year. The $1,600 check that was

politically agreeable on that side is what ultimately was settled upon. Debate this year, too, is politically fraught. When lawmakers last year decided to use permanent fund earnings, the pot used to pay dividends, to help cover government costs amid an ongoing budget deficit, the dividend began competing with other programs for funding. Sen. Lyman Hoffman, a Bethel Democrat, said Tuesday that having government “take the first bite of the apple puts the dividend potentially at risk.” He said the split between what goes to government and what goes to dividends should be settled. Dunleavy campaigned on following the formula in state law for a full dividend payout after three years of reduced payouts. The Republican has not said what he would do if lawmakers deliver a smaller dividend. He has said he won’t be afraid to flex any of his constitutional powers, which include veto authorities. The

Gerald (Gary) Jones

Patricia Ann McComsey March 23, 1934 - April 9, 2019

May 18, 1931 - April 12, 2019

Gary Jones, formerly of Anchorage, Alaska, died in Wenatchee, Washington, on April 7, 2019, at age 78. A native of Kansas who later lived in Chico, California, Gary moved to Alaska in 1965 in search of adventure on the ground and in the skies. He worked as a welder in steel fabrication in Anchorage, on the North Slope, and Cook Inlet, and he subsequently operated his own mobile welding business, Northern Dynamics. He became a licensed pilot and rebuilt and modified the family PA-12 twice. In 2016, he finished building a four-seater single engine tail dragger airplane of his own design, which he named Raven (n540-AK). His longtime friend Jim Geeslin made the inaugural flight of the airplane in 2018. Gary was born May 30, 1940, in Admire, Kansas, to Lewis and Geraldine (Osborne) Jones. He moved with his parents and siblings, Richard, Bev, and Shirley, to Chico, California, in 1956. He enlisted in the Navy in 1960 where he learned to weld, which became his lifelong trade. He was a talented and skilled craftsman. Gary met and married Nancy (Hoxworth) in 1972 and together they raised two children, moving first to Alexander Creek in 1974, and then to Sterling in 1978. Gary and Nancy returned to Anchorage in 1993. In 2018, they made the big decision to leave Alaska and moved to Wenatchee, Washington in order to be closer to the rest of the family that had already moved Outside. In addition to flying and welding, Gary loved to hunt, ride snow machines, and spend time with his family and friends, and he played a good game of cribbage. He was a gifted fabricator, creating all kinds of things over the years, from go-carts and snow machine sleds to intricate works of art, before completing his dream airplane. Gary is survived by his wife Nancy, son Curt (Caroline) Potter, daughter Carla, honorary grandchildren Reese and Riley Gasque, brother Richard, sister Bev Harrington, and numerous nieces and nephews. Known for his big heart and generosity of spirit and time, Gary was always the first to offer help to a friend or family member and he never met a stranger. He will be greatly missed. His ashes will be scattered over Mount Sustina in the summer and a gathering will be held for him in Sterling.

Patricia Ann “Pat” McComsey passed away April 9, 2019 in Pheonix, Arizona. She was born in Lincoln, NE on March 23, 1934, to Margaret and Leonard (Griffin) Styer. The family moved to Walcott, CO when she was young. From there, the family moved to Rangely, Co. Patricia graduated from Rangely High School. On November 16, 1957, she married Arthur McComsey. They started their family; Mark McComsey and Lori McComsey, and lived in Rangely until 1969. In july of 1969, Patricia and her family moved to Kenai Alaska, living there for 35 years. They then moved back to Colorado, living in Palisade, CO until her death. Pat loved the outdoors, be it desert or mountains. She was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband Art McComsey; sister, Francis Kane of Hawaii; brother, Leonard Styer of Death Valley, CA; children, Mark and Lori of Kenai, AK; grandchildren, Kayleena, Marylou and Jacob, and great grandchildren, Levi, and Lexis; several nephews and nieces. A Mass, celebrating her life, will be held April 25, 2019, at St. Ann Catholic Church in Palisade, CO at 10:00 am. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to any Hospice organization.

Brown, sons; David R. Brown, Thurston P. Nix, several grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She will be dearly missed.

Solutions. The total for the new supplies comes out to $100,027.79, with the remaining $27.79 coming out of the police operating budget, according to the April 8 memo. The grant will cover the cost of 19 radios. During the council meeting, City Manager Paul Ostrander said the department will need to purchase specific radios to match the radios already in use. In his memo, Ross said there are a number of reasons to use a sole source with Motorola. “KPD and KFD are both fully equipped with Motorola radios, and their personnel has experience working on and programming the Motorola radios,” the memo said. “The departments also have accessories in place for managing these

This partial replacement further necessitates the need to purchase like equipment for both maintenance and operations. The portable radios that are currently in use by both departments (Motorola) have proven extremely reliable, with the availability of maintenance from the vendor when required.” Ostrander said the fire department has also requested new radios. “The fire department still needs some radios,” Ostrander said. “There have been requests for radio purchases from the fire department, something that administration is considering but not planning on funding those during this budget cycle. There’s certainly a need that’s been identified by the fire department.”

The pup is receiving 24hour care and is being fed every two hours.

ple in Trump’s administration were granted security clearances despite “disqualifying issues” in their backgrounds. Trump said he doesn’t want former or current aides testifying in Congress, “where it’s very partisan — obviously very partisan.” Trump told The Washington Post in an interview published Tuesday night, “I don’t want people testifying to a party, because that is what they’re doing if they do this.” Meanwhile, the administration on Tuesday defied a demand from Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., to turn over six years of Trump’s tax returns by the close of business — a strong signal that they intend to reject the request. In a letter to Neal, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin asked for more time and said he would give the

panel a final decision by May 6. Mnuchin wrote Neal that he is consulting with the Justice Department “due to the serious constitutional questions raised by this request and the serious consequences that a resolution of those questions could have for taxpayer privacy.” Neal hasn’t announced next steps, but he could opt to issue a subpoena to enforce his demand, sent under a 1924 law that requires the Treasury secretary to furnish any tax return requested by a handful of lawmakers with responsibility over the IRS. The fight over Kline’s appearance comes as the White House has stonewalled the oversight panel in several different investigations. On Monday, Trump and his business organization sued Cummings to block a subpoena that seeks years of the president’s financial records. The complaint, filed in federal court in Washington, said a subpoena from Cummings

“has no legitimate legislative purpose” and accused Democrats of harassing Trump. Cummings said the White House “has refused to produce a single piece of paper or a single witness” in any of the panel’s investigations this year. Democrats took control of the House in January. The back and forth over Kline’s testimony played out in a series of letters over the past month between the White House, the oversight committee and Kline’s lawyer. The White House demanded that one of its lawyers attend the deposition to ensure executive privilege was protected, but Cummings rejected that request. The White House then ordered Kline, who now works at the Pentagon, to defy the subpoena. Cummings said the committee has for years required

that witnesses are represented only by their own counsel. “There are obvious reasons we need to conduct our investigations of agency malfeasance without representatives of the office under investigation,” Cummings said in a statement. A spokesman for the top Republican on the oversight panel, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, said Cummings was choosing confrontation over cooperation. “Chairman Cummings rushed to a subpoena in his insatiable quest to sully the White House,” said Russell Dye. The oversight panel has been investigating security clearances issued to senior officials, including Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former White House aide Rob Porter.

What Others Say

Still a master at his game The pretournament coverage focused on Augusta National Golf Club as the star of the show as much as the golfers themselves at the 2019 Masters. That changed in a big way on Sunday. The victory by 43-year-old Tiger Woods is the stuff of legend. After an 11-year drought in winning one of golf’s majors, Woods captured the Masters for the first time in 14 years, the longest stretch between victories at Augusta for any player ever. The triumph is wildly popular among golf fans and beyond as Woods is an international celebrity. His victory is being compared to great comebacks of all time, with commentators citing the likes of Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan. In reality, the Woods story may have its closest parallel in the golf world itself in the story of another famous player, the late Ben Hogan. PGA.com offers a short version of the Hogan story: “On Jan. 6, 1950, Hogan returned to competitive golf at the Los Angeles Open, 11 months after a near-fatal car accident. “On Feb. 2, 1949, Hogan and his wife, Valerie, narrowly survived a head-on collision with a Greyhound bus in Texas. In a successful attempt to save his wife’s life by throwing himself in front of her, Hogan likely also saved his own life since the steering column punctured the driver’s seat. “Hogan, 36 at the time, suffered a double-fracture of the pelvis, a fractured collar bone, a left ankle fracture, a chipped rib, and near-fatal blood clots. He suffered lifelong circulation problems and other physical limitations. “Fifty-nine days after the accident, Hogan was out of the hospital and by November of that year, he resumed golf activities. “In that L.A. Open return, Hogan was outstanding, eventually losing a playoff to Sam Snead. “Post-accident, Hogan won 11 more times on the PGA Tour, including six of his nine major championships.” Tiger Woods has overcome major physical obstacles also. Most notable, he had four back surgeries, including spinal fusion. Woods himself wondered would he ever be able to play golf again, much less at the level of competition in major tournaments. Yet he made a successful return to the game and won a key victory late in 2018, but nothing compares to the triumph on Sunday at Augusta National. The win has renewed talk of Woods overtaking Jack Nicklaus’ mark of 18 major titles. He has 15 and appears ready to challenge for more. Perhaps that is his goal. But even if he does not win again in any event, Sunday completed one of the greatest comebacks in sports history by the player having done more than any other in spreading the popularity of golf around the world and, in particular, among young people holding the future of the game. — The (South Carolina) Times and Democrate , April 16

The wishful thinking of ballot measures

Alaska’s past is littered with wellintentioned but poorly conceived ballot questions presented to voters on all matters of topics. Adding the Permanent Fund dividend to that list of politically popular questions now would be as useful as asking a group of 12-yearolds whether they want more candy or more homework. The governor says he wants to know what voters think of the dividend. He says an advisory vote could settle the question of who has better hearing: The governor, who says he hears from people who want to get a big dividend check, and legislators, who say they hear from people who want the state to fund schools and community services. People all too often hear what they want to hear. While considering the governor’s stand that an advisory vote is the best path forward, let’s look back at a similar path that led nowhere. In 2002, Alaskans cast ballots on a citizen’s initiative for a state-owned North Slope natural gas pipeline. (Yes, we’ve tried this one before, and the outcome is still the same.) The vote was 62% to 38% to create the Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority to buy gas from the North Slope producers, build a multibillion-dollar pipeline to Valdez, use eminent domain to take private property as needed, build a multibillion-dollar liquefaction plant and sell the LNG to buyers in Asia. But nowhere did the ballot question say how much the project would cost or how the state would come up with its share of the money. Nowhere did it talk about the problems of such a venture. The fine print said the new

A laska V oices L arry P ersily state corporation could borrow all the money it needed, without any risk to the state. Sure, no problem, there are always investors willing to put up tens of billions of dollars just because some voters with no money at stake think it’s a great idea. The best part of this history lesson is the initiative’s sponsor statement that was printed in the state voter pamphlet: “As Alaska now faces an impending fiscal crisis in coming years, the marketing of its gas in the most prudent and lucrative manner is paramount. Wouldn’t it be better to solve our fiscal problems through an in-state project such as this rather than taxing Alaskans or taking your Permanent Fund dividend? We think so.” The long ballot question and misleading backup explanation should have been honestly rewritten to say: “Do you want a North Slope gas pipeline that will not cost you anything, will protect your dividends and your tax-free life, and will make the state rich again? All in favor, vote yes.” We fell for it. Tens of millions of dollars of state spending and years later, there is no gas line, there is no more Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority. There is only the sad memory that the

public embraced a misleading ballot question because they wanted it to be true. It’s the same thing today. If the question in Gov. Dunleavy’s advisory vote is, “Do you want a big fat dividend with absolutely no consequences (other than paying more federal taxes on your dividend),” I expect Las Vegas bookies would not even bother taking bets on the outcome. But if the governor is willing to ask voters an honest question, then at least we would have a fair election: “Do you want a big fat dividend if the price to your community is cutting teachers, increasing class sizes, maybe shutting down university campuses, stopping year-round state ferry service, dumping a lot of the state’s bills on city and borough taxpayers, and generally driving the Alaska economy back into a recession?” OK, maybe a little harsh. How about we tone it down: “Do you want a big dividend even if it means hurting your community, your neighbors and even dairy cows who will lose their health inspections?” A misleading advisory vote is worse than doing nothing. It would serve to perpetuate a myth. The truth is, you can have your cake and eat it too — you just have to pay for the cake.

News and Politics

Florida House closer to passing felon voting rights bill By CURT ANDERSON Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Legislation that would restore voting rights to convicted felons who complete their sentences except murderers and felony sex offenders moved another step Tuesday toward passage in the Florida House. Lawmakers debated a measure into the night that would implement a constitutional amendment approved by voters last November. The main issue is whether legislation is needed at all, and

whether the House bill sets up unnecessary hurdles for ex-felons such as requiring that all fines and restitution be paid. A final House vote could come as early as Wednesday. A similar Senate bill is pending. Republican Rep. Jamie Grant of Tampa, the main sponsor, said completion of a sentence includes any period of probation and any financial obligations ordered by a judge. Grant said proponents of Amendment 4 specifically included those provisions when the issue came before the Florida Supreme Court for ap-

proval prior to last year's election. "We're not putting any additional impediments in. We are upholding what was put before the voters," Grant said. "It absolutely includes fines, fees and court costs." Opponents said those requirements would bar many former felons from voting and violate the spirit of the constitutional amendment. They compared the financial aspects of the bill to a type of poll tax used to bar African Americans from voting during the Jim Crow era in the South.

Justices seem ready to OK asking citizenship on census By MARK SHERMAN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Despite evidence that millions of Hispanics and immigrants could go uncounted, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority seemed ready Tuesday to uphold the Trump administration’s plan to inquire about U.S. citizenship on the 2020 census in a case that could affect American elections for the next decade. There appeared to be a clear divide between the court’s liberal and conservative justices in arguments in a case that could affect how many seats states have in the House of Representatives and their share of federal dollars over the next 10 years. States with a large number of immigrants tend to vote Democratic. Three lower courts have so far blocked the

plan to ask every U.S. resident about citizenship in the census, finding that the question would discourage many immigrants from being counted . Two of the three judges also ruled that asking if people are citizens would violate the provision of the Constitution that calls for a count of the population, regardless of citizenship status, every 10 years. The last time the question was included on the census form sent to every American household was 1950. Three conservative justices, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas, had expressed skepticism about the challenge to the question in earlier stages of the case, but Chief Justice John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh had been silent, possibly suggesting a

willingness to disrupt the administration’s plan. However, over 80 minutes in a packed courtroom, neither Roberts nor Kavanaugh appeared to share the concern of the lower court judges who ruled against the administration. Kavanaugh, the court’s newest member and an ap-

pointee of President Donald Trump, suggested Congress could change the law if it so concerned that the accuracy of the once-a-decade population count will suffer. “Why doesn’t Congress prohibit the asking of the citizenship question?” Kavanaugh asked near the end of the morning session.

Feds: Ex-CEO is first drug exec indicted in opioid crisis By MICHAEL R. SISAK Associated Press

NEW YORK — The former head of a drug distributor has been indicted on what federal prosecutors say are the first criminal charges against a drug company executive to stem from the opioid crisis. The indictment unsealed Tuesday alleges former Rochester Drug Co-Operative CEO Laurence Doud III ordered subordinates to ignore red flags about certain pharmacy customers to maximize company revenues and his own pay, which more than doubled between 2012 and 2016 as the company’s sales of drugs like oxycodone and fentanyl skyrocketed. Doud, 75, surrendered to authorities in New York City and is awaiting arraignment on two counts of conspiracy. His lawyer said he would fight the charges. If convicted, he

faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said. Rochester Drug CoOperative and another former executive were also charged. The company entered into a deferred prosecution agreement, and former compliance chief William Pietruszews-

ki reached a cooperation agreement. “This prosecution is the first of its kind: Executives of a pharmaceutical distributor and the distributor itself have been charged with drug trafficking — trafficking the same drugs that are fueling the opioid epidemic that is ravaging this country,” Berman said.

Doud and other top executives “made the deliberate decision” not to investigate, monitor or alert federal regulators about pharmacy customers they knew were providing opioids to people who wanted them for non-medical uses, the indictment alleges. Rochester Drug Co-Operative’s oxycodone sales increased by 800% and its fentanyl sales jumped by 2,000% between 2012 and 2016, Berman said. During the same period, the company’s internal compliance office flagged 8,300 orders but reported just four to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The company is one of the nation’s ten largest distributors of pharmaceutical products, with over 1,300 pharmacy customers and over $1 billion in revenue per year. The company says the vast majority of its customers are small, independent pharmacies.

Armed border group’s leader said to have assassination plans By CEDAR ATTANASIO Associated Press

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — The leader of an armed group that has been detaining asylum-seeking families from Central America near the Mexican border said two years ago that he was training supporters to assassinate Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and billionaire Democratic supporter George Soros, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday. The FBI declined to comment on why it waited to bring charges against Larry Hopkins following a search in 2017 but his arrest follows widespread

criticism after videos surfaced of their members carrying firearms and detaining groups of immigrants crossing the border. Members of the group the United Constitutional Patriots say they want to draw attention to immigration violations and assist federal law enforcement in patrolling the border. Hopkins, 69, made an initial appearance in federal court on Monday, two days after the FBI arrested him on charges of possession of firearms by a felon. He was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, a suburb of El Paso, Texas, where his group has been stopping migrants, alert-

ing the Border Patrol and ordering them to wait until agents arrive. He will plead not guilty at a hearing next week in Albuquerque, said Kelly O’Connell, his attorney. He is being held without bond. Hopkins allegedly invited an FBI agent into his home in 2017 and showed him at least nine weapons, including an AK-47 assault rifle and ammunition. According to the complaint, he first told the agent that the weapons belonged to his live-in girlfriend, but then referred to one of the weapons as his. Hopkins told members of the Patriots in 2017 that they “were training

to assassinate George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, because of these individuals support of Antifa,”or anti-fascists, according to the complaint. Members call Hopkins their “commander” online and in evidence presented to the federal court. A Patriots spokesman, Jim Benvie, dismissed the allegations as “fake news.” He posted a video saying that that it may move its base from the Sunland Park to another location because of excessive media attention. “It’s a false narrative that we’re a bunch of armed lunatics and we’re holding kids at gunpoint,” Benvie said.

Medicare, Social Security face shaky fiscal futures WASHINGTON — The financial condition of the government’s bedrock retirement programs for middle- and working-class Americans remains shaky, with Medicare pointed toward insolvency by 2026, according to a report Monday by the government’s overseers of Medicare and Social Security. It paints a sobering picture of the programs, though it’s relatively unchanged from last year’s update. Social Security would become insolvent in 2035, one year later than previously estimated. Both programs will need to eventually be addressed to avert automatic cuts should their trust funds run dry. Neither President Donald Trump nor Capitol Hill’s warring factions has put political perilous cost curbs on their to-do list. The report is the latest update of the government’s troubled fiscal picture. It lands in a capital that has proven chronically unable to address it. Trump has declared benefit cuts to the nation’s signature retirement programs off limits and many Democratic presidential candidates are calling for expanding Medicare benefits rather than addressing the program’s worsening finances. Many on both sides actually agree that it would be better for Washington to act sooner rather than later to shore up the programs rather than wait until they are on the brink of insolvency and have to weigh more drastic steps. Limiting her comments to Medicare, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the report highlights the need for “serious-minded” lawmakers to work with the administration on bipartisan changes to lower costs, eliminate fraud and abuse, and preserve the program for future generations. Sanders also took the opportunity to criticize Democrats’ calls to expand Medicare. She claimed such a step would amount to a “total government takeover of health care” that would cut out private-sector options, endanger access to health care for seniors and further strain the federal budget. But potential cuts such as curbing inflationary increases for Social Security, hiking payroll taxes or raising the Medicare retirement age are so politically freighted and toxic that Washington’s power players are mostly ignoring the problem. Arkansas Rep. Steve Womack, the senior Republican on the House Budget Committee, urged action, saying the financial condition of both programs is driving up federal spending, increasing budget deficits and crowing out other priorities. “We cannot afford to ignore this reality any longer,” Womack said. Later this year, Social Security is expected to declare a 1.8% cost-of-living increase for 2020 based on current trends, program officials say. Monday’s report by three Cabinet heads and Social Security’s acting commissioner, urges lawmakers to “take action sooner rather than later to address these shortfalls, so that a broader range of solutions can be considered and more time will be available to phase in changes while giving the public adequate time to prepare.” If Congress doesn’t act, both programs would eventually be unable to cover the full cost of promised benefits. With Social Security that could mean automatic benefit cuts for most retirees, many of whom depend on the program to cover basic living costs. For Medicare, it could mean that hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical providers would be paid only part of their agreed-upon fees. In a glimmer of good news, Social Security’s disability program is now estimated to remain solvent for an additional 20 years, through 2052. Overall, however, Social Security would run out of reserves by 2035, one year later than projected in last year’s report. “We remain committed to further bolstering the programs’ finances, which will benefit from the longterm growth we will see as a result of the Administration’s economic policies,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. As an indication of Medicare’s woes, it would take a payroll tax increase of 0.91 percentage points to fully address its shortfall or a 19% cut in spending. Medicare’s problems are considered more difficult to solve, as health care costs regularly outpace inflation and economic growth. Social Security is the government’s largest program, costing $853 billion last year, with another $147 billion for disability benefits. Medicare’s hospital, outpatient care, and prescription drug benefits totaled about $740 billion. — The Associated Press

Egypt voters approve extending president’s rule

CAIRO — Voters in Egypt approved constitutional amendments allowing President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to remain in power until 2030, election officials said Tuesday, a move that critics fear will cement his authoritarian rule eight years after a pro-democracy uprising. El-Sissi led the military overthrow of an elected but divisive Islamist president amid mass protests against his rule in 2013 and has since presided over an unprecedented crackdown on dissent. Thousands of people, including many pro-democracy activists, have been arrested by authorities. Freedoms won in

2011, when mass protests ended President Hosni Mubarak’s nearly three-decade rule, have been rolled back. Lasheen Ibrahim, the head of Egypt’s National Election Authority, told a news conference the amendments to the 2014 constitution were approved with 88.83% voting in favor, with a turnout of 44.33%. The nationwide referendum took place over three days, from Saturday through Monday to maximize turnout. Egypt has some 61 million eligible voters. In his first public comments on the amendments, el-Sissi thanked the Egyptian people for voting. “Wonderful scene done by Egyptians who took part

in the referendum… will be written down in our nation’s historical record,” he tweeted minutes after Ibrahim announced the results. Pro-government media, business people and lawmakers had pushed for a “Yes” vote and a high turnout, with many offering free rides and food handouts to voters, while authorities threatened to fine anyone boycotting the three-day referendum. Opposition parties had urged a “no” vote, but they have little power in parliament, which is packed with el-Sissi supporters and overwhelmingly approved the amendments earlier this month. The local media is also dominated by progovernment commentators, and the authorities have blocked hundreds of websites, including many operated by independent media and rights groups. Two international advocacy groups — Human Rights Watch and the International Commission of Jurists — had urged the Egyptian government to withdraw the amendments, saying they placed the country on a path to more autocratic rule. Hassan Nafaa, a political science professor at Cairo University, said the results were expected. “There will be dangerous repercussion

from the ruling regime as we will see more repression and restrictive policies,” he said. Generally, the amendments extend a president’s term in office from four to six years and allow for a maximum of two terms. But they also include a special article specific to elSissi that extends his current second four-year term to six years and allows him to run for another six-year term in 2024 — potentially extending his rule until 2030. The changes also allow the president to appoint top judges and include language declaring the military the “guardian and protector” of the Egyptian state, democracy and the constitution, while granting military courts wider jurisdiction in trying civilians. El-Sissi was elected president in 2014 and reelected last year after all potentially serious challengers were jailed or pressured to exit the race. Parliament overwhelmingly approved the amendments last week, with only 22 no votes and one abstention from 554 lawmakers in attendance. The national electoral commission announced the following day that voting would begin Saturday.

Saudi Arabia beheads 37 for terrorism crimes; most Shiites By AYA BATRAWY Associated Press

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia on Tuesday beheaded 37 Saudi citizens, most of them minority Shiites, in a mass execution across the country for alleged terrorism-related crimes. It also publicly pinned the executed body and severed head of a convicted Sunni extremist to a pole as a warning to others. The executions were likely to stoke further regional and sectarian tensions between rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran. Saudi dissident Ali AlAhmed, who runs the Gulf Institute in Washington, identified 34 of those executed as Shiites based on the names announced by the Interior Ministry. “This is the largest mass execution of Shiites in the kingdom’s history,” he said. Amnesty International also confirmed the majority of those executed were Shi-

ite men. The rights group said they were convicted “after sham trials” that relied on confessions extracted through torture. It marked the largest number of executions in a single day in Saudi Arabia since Jan. 2, 2016, when the kingdom executed 47 people for terrorism-related crimes in what was the largest mass execution carried out by Saudi authorities since 1980. Among those executed three years ago were four Shiites, including prominent Shiite cleric Nimr alNimr, whose death sparked protests from Pakistan to Iran and the ransacking of the Saudi Embassy in Tehran. Saudi-Iran ties have not recovered and the embassy remains shuttered. King Salman ratified by royal decree Tuesday’s mass execution and that of 2016. The king, who has empowered his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has asserted a bolder and

more decisive leadership style than previous monarchs since ascending to the throne in 2015. The kingdom and its Sunni-led Arab allies have also been emboldened by U.S. President Donald Trump’s unwavering dedication to pressuring Iran’s Shiite clerical leadership, which includes his decision to pull out of a nuclear agreement with Iran and re-

impose punishing sanctions to cripple its economy. Al-Ahmed described Tuesday’s executions as a politically motivated message to Iran. “This is political,” he said. “They didn’t have to execute these people, but it’s important for them to ride the American anti-Iranian wave.” The Interior Ministry’s statement said those executed had adopted extremist ideologies and formed terrorist cells with the aim of spreading chaos and provoking sectarian strife. It said the individuals had been found guilty according to the law and ordered executed by the Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh, which specializes in terrorism trials, and the country’s high court. The individuals were found guilty of attacking security installations with explosives, killing a number of security officers and cooperating with enemy organizations against the interests of the country, the Interior Ministry said. The statement was carried across state-run media, including the Saudi news channel al-Ekhbariya. The statement read on the staterun news channel opened with a verse from the Quran that condemns attacks that aim to create strife and disharmony and warns of great punishment for those who carry out such attacks. Al-Ahmed said among those executed was Shiite religious leader Sheikh Mohammed al-Attiyah, whose charges included seeking to form a sectarian group in the western city of Jiddah. Al-Ahmed said the sheikh publicly spoke of the need to work closely with Saudi Arabia’s Sunni majority and would lead small prayer groups among Shiites.

Around the World Putin, Kim to meet in Russia’s Far East on Thursday MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a much-anticipated summit on Thursday, the Kremlin said, ending weeks of speculation about the meeting’s timing and venue. Preparations for the meeting in Vladivostok, a Russia city on the Pacific, were held in secrecy because of North Korean security concerns, Kremlin adviser Yuri Ushakov said Tuesday. Ushakov said the talks would focus on the standoff over the North’s nuclear program, noting that Russia will seek to “consolidate the positive trends” stemming from U.S. President Donald Trump’s meetings with Kim. Kim had two summits with Trump, but the latest in Vietnam in February collapsed because North Korea wanted more sanctions relief than Washington was willing to give for the amount of nuclear disarmament offered by Pyongyang. Putin’s adviser added that the Kremlin would try to help “create preconditions and a favorable atmosphere for reaching solid agreements on the problem of the Korean Peninsula,” Ushakov said. Ushakov pointed at a Russia-China roadmap that offered a step-by-step approach to solving the nuclear standoff and called for sanctions relief and security guarantees to Pyongyang. He noted that the North’s moratorium on nuclear tests and scaling down of U.S.-South Korean military drills helped reduce tensions and created conditions for further progress. Ushakov said that Putin-Kim summit’s agenda will also include bilateral cooperation. He added that Russia’s trade with North Korea is minuscule at just $34 million last year, mostly because of the international sanctions against Pyongyang. Russia would like to gain broader access to North Korea’s mineral resources, including rare metals. Pyongyang, for its part, covets Russia’s electricity supplies and wants to attract Russian investment to modernize its dilapidated Soviet-built industrial plants, railways and other infrastructure. In the meantime, Vladivostok has been seeing a number of unusually strict security measures. Maritime authorities said Tuesday that the waters around Russky Island, off the southern tip of Vladivostok, would be closed to all maritime traffic between Wednesday morning and Friday morning. The island, which is home to a university with a conference hall, is seen as a likely summit venue. Separately, local media reported that some platforms at Vladivostok’s main train station would be closed for several days, and that buses will be rerouted from the train station Wednesday. News website Vl.ru reported that municipal authorities undertook road works to make the entryway in and out of the train station less steep — presumably to allow Kim’s limousine to drive straight out from the platform. Kim, like his father, avoids air travel and is likely to travel by train to Vladivostok, about 675 kilometers (419 miles) north of Pyongyang. Earlier on Tuesday, North Korea confirmed the meeting in a terse, two-sentence statement.

Oil prices climb in wake of Iranian oil sanctions decision NEW YORK — Global oil prices are rising in the wake of President Donald Trump’s decision to impose sanctions on nations that import Iranian oil and could eventually climb to levels that would impact American consumers. Analysts said Tuesday that by taking Iranian crude off the market, the price of Brent crude oil — which is traded internationally — could rise to $80 per barrel or higher, depending on what happens in other countries where supply is at risk. “That would certainly be felt by U.S. consumers, especially going into the driving season over the summer,” said Paul Sheldon, chief geopolitical adviser at S&P Global Platts Analytics. International Brent oil rose 47 cents to $74.51 Tuesday while U.S. West Texas Intermediate rose 75 cents to $66.30. The U.S. announced the sanctions in November but some countries got temporary waivers that allowed them to import Iranian oil. The U.S. now says those waivers, which primarily impact China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey, will expire May 2. Prices haven’t been this high since late October. Pavel Molchanov, energy analyst at Raymond James, said that the oil market was under-supplied even before the decision to end the waivers. Now that the waivers are being withdrawn, “we think it will be even more under-supplied than before,” he said. The price of Brent crude oil could reach a high of $100 a barrel in 2020, which could have a more meaningful impact on the U.S. economy, Molchanov said. But even before then, countries with weaker economies and currencies and little to no oil supply of their own such as Pakistan, Bangladesh and SubSaharan African countries will feel the pain of rising prices, he added. Raymond James had predicted a global undersupply of 740,000 barrels per day in 2019, and an additional undersupply of 460,000 barrels per day in 2020 prior to Monday’s announcement. Ending the sanction waivers contributes to the undersupply by another 300,000 barrels a day, Molchanov said. President Donald Trump made the decision as part of the administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign on Iran that aims to eliminate all of its revenue from oil exports that the U.S. says funds destabilizing activity throughout the Middle East and beyond. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday the U.S. is counting on ally Saudi Arabia and other producers to ensure sufficient supply, along with increased U.S. production.

The continued story about Ben’s boat and clam digging 1971, Homer Ben had just beached his boat on the outside shore of the Homer Spit. We stopped like the bottom of the boat had a big suction cup attached. Ben had broken the steering wheel off with his chest and he was still hanging on to the steering wheel in death grip. He kept repeating, “I hope nobody got hurt. I hope I din’t hurt nobody.” We assured him we were OK. Nadene assured him SHE WAS NOT!! “You jest look at me Ben!” Only then, when he looked up at Nadene in all her muddy glory, with gunk dripping from her always perfect hair, did he start to laugh. We all laughed so hard we could not get out of the boat. We just sat there and pointed and laughed at each other. Someone came running down the beach asking if everyone was OK. We looked up and there was a big crowd of onlookers standing at the top of the beach, looking down on us, some offered help and some just stood with hands in their pockets and they all joined in our laughter. We finally regained our composure, surveyed the damage, and started gathering up the clams that had flown forward and now underneath the bow of the boat. That took us a long time, crawling under the bow, putting them in buckets, hauling up the steep incline to the old, old yellow bus. Turn around and go back and get more clams, crawl around, get another bucketful and haul it back up the incline. Just ONE other fellow helped us haul clams up to the bus. The rest decided the excitement was over and slowly went back to what they were doing before they were interrupted. After hours and hours of gathering clams and carrying them up to the final resting place, the men took off in the boat to the marina, with a pair of vice grips where the steering wheel was not. They had a heck of a time going around the end of the Spit and into the marina as the vice grips kept sliding off. They had to go slow, for fear of running into something. It was a long time before they got to the docking area. See ANNIE, page 8

For moist grilled pork skewers, turn to country-style ribs

This undated photo shows Grilled Spiced Pork Skewers with Onion and Caper Relish in Brookline, Mass. (Joe Keller/America’s Test Kitchen via AP) By America’s Test Kitchen The Associated Press

For grilled pork skewers that were moist and flavourful, we turned to boneless country-style ribs, which are quick-cooking and tender, yet have enough fat to keep them from drying out. The flavourful North African-inspired seasonings of garlic, lemon, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, and cinnamon did double duty, first in a marinade and later in a basting sauce. As a base for the relish, we grilled onions alongside the pork. We mixed the grilled onions with a zesty combination of olives, capers, balsamic vinegar, and parsley for a bright, potent sauce that perfectly complemented the skewers. You will need six 12 inch metal skewers for this recipe.

GRILLED SPICED PORK SKEWERS WITH ONION AND CAPER RELISH Servings: 6 Start to finish: 2 hours 6 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil 5 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest 1 tablespoon ground coriander 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon Salt and pepper 1 1/2 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs, trimmed of all visible fat and cut into 1 inch pieces 2 onions, sliced into 1/2 inch-thick rounds 1/2 cup pitted kalamata

olives, chopped 1/4 cup capers, rinsed 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley Whisk 1/4 cup oil, garlic, lemon zest, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper together in medium bowl. Measure out and reserve 2 tablespoons marinade. Combine remaining marinade and pork in 1 gallon zipper-lock bag and toss to coat. Press out as much air as possible and seal bag. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 2 hours, flipping bag every 30 minutes. Remove pork from bag and pat dry with paper towels. Thread pork tightly onto four 12 inch metal skewers. Thread onion rounds from side

to side onto two 12 inch metal skewers and brush with 1 tablespoon oil. — For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent completely. Light large chimney starter three-quarters filled with charcoal briquettes (4 1/2 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour evenly over grill. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent completely. Heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. — For a gas grill: Turn all burners to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Turn all burners to mediumhigh. Clean and oil cooking grate. Place pork and onion skewers on grill and cook (covered if using gas), turning skewers every 2 minutes and basting pork with reserved

marinade, until pork is browned and registers 145 F and onions are slightly charred and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer pork and onions to cutting board as they finish grilling and tent with aluminum foil. Let pork rest while preparing relish. Coarsely chop onions and combine with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, olives, capers, vinegar, and parsley. Season with pepper to taste. Using tongs, slide pork off skewers onto serving platter. Serve with relish. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 371 calories 258 calories from fat 29 g fat (5 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 62 mg cholesterol 726 mg sodium 8 g carbohydrate 1 g fiber 3 g sugar 21 g protein.

A delicate tangle of grassy pea greens drives this salad Then we added a microwaved mixture of shallots, apricots, mustard, and white wine vinegar to the hot oil. We made sure to add the apricot mixture to the oil off the heat, as the hot oil was likely to sizzle. The last step was simply tossing the warmed vinaigrette with the pea greens, cooked peas, and a bit of Belgian endive for welcome crunch. You can substitute frozen, thawed peas for the fresh peas if using frozen peas, skip the first step.

A delicate tangle of grassy pea greens forms the basis of this salad, complemented by fresh peas, en-

dive, and a warm, fruity vinaigrette that both offsets the faintly bitter quality of the pea greens and lightly wilts them. To boost our salad with sweet springtime flavour,

we steamed the fresh peas in a skillet until just tender before adding them. In the same skillet we used to cook our peas, we toasted pistachios to build our warmed vinaigrette.

PEA GREEN SALAD WITH WARM APRICOT PISTACHIO VINAIGRETTE Servings: 4-6 Start to finish: 40 minutes 1 pound fresh peas, shelled (1 1/4 cups) 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar 2 teaspoons whole-grain

mustard 1/2 teaspoon sugar Salt and pepper 1 small shallot, halved and sliced thin 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 1/3 cup shelled pistachios, chopped 8 ounces (8 cups) pea greens 2 heads Belgian endive (8 ounces), trimmed, halved lengthwise, and sliced 1/4 inch thick Bring peas and 1/4 cup water to simmer in 10 inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until peas are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain peas and set aside. Wipe skillet clean with paper towels. Whisk vinegar, mustard, sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together in medium bowl.

Add shallot and apricots, cover, and microwave until steaming, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir to submerge shallot, then let cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes. Heat oil in now-empty skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add pistachios and cook, stirring frequently, until toasted and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Off heat, stir in shallot mixture and let sit until heated through, about 30 seconds. Gently toss pea greens, endive, and peas with warm vinaigrette in large bowl until evenly coated and wilted slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Nadene and I met them, thinking maybe finally we would posContinued from page A7 sibly go get a shower at the public facility, but we did not want to go alone. Oh! NO! The men had other plans. They headed for the Salty Dog; they had a story to tell! Not knowing what to do we joined them all caked with mud and stringy hair. Somehow men with dried mud on them look better than women wearing dried mud. We all had fun telling our version of the “Wreck of Ben’s Boat” to anyone who was interested. The next two days we spent cleaning, eating and canning the wayward clams. And every once in a while we looked up and we would burst out laughing all over again. They had a terrible time getting the boat up on the trailer when it came time to go home. With only the vice grips for a steering wheel, we finally solved that problem with two ropes one on each side of the boat, gently nudging and tugging the boat forward, no full throttle this time. Nadene was standing off to the side, with her hands piled on top of her head, urging us on — a one person cheerleader. “Owh Owh, come on now, Owh Owh come on Ben, you can do it! OWWWEEEE now be “care-fee.” I looked around and sure enough, there was a small crowd gathered, watching and wondering what was going to happen this time. Ben and Nadene would come and visit us or we would go see them or go fishing together on the Little Su, or water skiing on Big Lake and the first thing we would do was laugh and point fingers at each other. OH! What fun we had in the Nort’ Land! Years and years have gone by since then and I still get the giggles when I tell this story. We all usually end up with the giggles and tears running down their cheeks. The End Thank you for the many comments on this story.

GREEN CHILI CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP or Hello Kitty Soup Saute: 1 medium onion cut in chunks 2 stalks celery cut in bite sized pieces Fresh mushrooms, sliced (or add small can mushrooms after sauteing) While vegetables are sauteing add, according to what you have on hand: Grilled chicken, baked chicken, leftover chicken, cut in pieces (I grilled about 8 chicken strips on the George Forman Grill). 2 cans of chicken broth 2 cans water 1 to 2 small cans chopped green chilies 2 can cream of chicken soup, do not dilute Stir in. Simmer 15 minutes while you cook: 2 cups dry noodles in water. Add drained noodles to simmering soup. Turn off and left set 5 minutes. Adjust seasoning. Usually does not take salt, just a sprinkle of pepper. Serve with cornmeal muffins and fresh fruit. This was served at Fireweed Gifts Hello Kitty Party.

CHICKEN KIEV This was served to us on Alaska Airlines of 1967 when the kids and I made our first trip by airplane to Alaska. I was so impressed. I have served this many, many times since. It is in my Grannie Annies Cookin’ at the Homestead Cookbook, page 94.

3 or 4 chicken breasts boned, skinned, thawed (Do you know how easy this is now? I used to have to bone and skin then). Slice through the widths as to butterfly. Pound with a meat mallet or edge of a saucer until evenly flat. Cut each piece into two — or three pieces if the breasts are large. For every breast piece, place 1 tablespoon butter, 1 tablespoon chives, a sprinkle of parsley, garlic salt and pepper to taste in the middle of flattened chicken. Fold in sides and roll around tablespoon butter and fastened with a toothpick or two. Roll in flour then in 3 beaten eggs and back in the flour, then beaten egg again. Roll in seasoned breadcrumbs or cracker crumbs and fry in deep fat 5 to 6 minutes. Drain. Serve with big salad. This is a nice appetizer for a buffet and can be made ahead and served cold. Can be time consuming, so start at least two hours ahead of time

CINNAMON ROLLS, INSTANTLY Some morning I want to just serve hot cinnamon rolls right out of the oven with messing with dough and letting it rise. Here ya’ go! 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 2 to 3 tablespoon melted butter 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans 1/2 cup raisins — maybe 1 can refrigerated Crescent dinner rolls Combine sugar, nuts and cinnamon. Separate rolls and light brush each triangle. Sprinkle with mixture, add nuts and raisins if you wish roll and pinch seams closed. Place on cookie sheet. Bake 350 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes. How simple is that?! Good too!

A rich almond cake makes a sophisticated and sweet dessert By America’s Test Kitchen The Associated Press

Simple, rich almond cake makes a sophisticated and delicately sweet dessert, but traditional European versions tend to be heavy and dense. For a slightly cakier version with plenty of nutty flavour, we swapped out the usual almond paste for toasted blanched sliced almonds (we disliked the slight bitterness imparted by skinon almonds) and added a bit of almond extract for extra depth. A generous amount of lemon zest provided subtle brightness. For an even lighter crumb, we increased the flour slightly and added baking powder—an untraditional ingredient—to ensure proper rise. Making the batter in a food processor broke down some of the protein structure in the eggs, ensuring that the cake had a level, not domed, top, which was especially important for this unfrosted dessert. We swapped some butter for oil and lowered the oven temperature to produce an evenly baked, moist cake. For a crunchy finishing touch, we topped the cake with sliced almonds and a

sprinkle of lemon-infused sugar. If you can’t find blanched sliced almonds, grind slivered almonds for the batter and use unblanched sliced almonds for the topping.

ITALIAN ALMOND CAKE Servings: 8-10 Start to finish: 1 hour, 30 minutes 1 1/2 cups plus 1/3 cup blanched sliced almonds, toasted 3/4 cup (3 3/4 ounces) all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/8 teaspoon baking soda 4 large eggs 1 1/4 cups (8 3/4 ounces) plus 2 tablespoons sugar 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest (2 lemons) 3/4 teaspoon almond extract 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 1/3 cup vegetable oil Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 300 F. Grease 9 inch round cake pan and line with parchment paper. Pulse 1 1/2 cups almonds, flour, salt, baking powder,

and baking soda in food processor until almonds are finely ground, 5 to 10 pulses. Transfer almond mixture to bowl. Process eggs, 1 1/4 cups sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon zest, and almond extract in now-empty processor until very pale yellow, about 2 minutes. With processor running, add melted butter and oil in steady stream until incorporated. Add almond mixture and pulse to combine, 4 to 5 pulses. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Using your fingers, combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest in small bowl until fragrant, 5 to 10 seconds. Sprinkle top of cake evenly with remaining 1/3 cup almonds followed by sugarzest mixture. Bake until centre of cake is set and bounces back when gently pressed and toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean, 55 minutes to 1 hour 5 minutes, rotating pan after 40 minutes. Let cake cool in pan on wire rack for 15 minutes. Run thin knife around edge of pan. Invert cake onto greased wire rack, discarding parchment, and reinvert cake

Give your mayo-heavy American potato salad a French twist

This undated photo shows a French Potato Salad with Dijon in Brookline, Mass. (Carl Tremblay/America’s Test Kitchen via AP) By America’s Test Kitchen The Associated Press

American-style potato salad, thickly dressed with mayonnaise and sweet pickle relish, is archetypal picnic fare and will always have a place on summer tables. But we’ve cooked (and eaten) piles of it over the years, and these days we yearn for something lighter and fresher to serve with grilled fish, chicken, and even meat. In our mind, French potato salad is just the ticket. Having little in common with its American counterpart, French potato salad is served

warm or at room temperature and is composed of sliced potatoes glistening with olive oil, white wine vinegar, and plenty of fresh herbs. We expected quick success with this seemingly simple recipe— how hard could it be to boil a few potatoes and toss them in vinaigrette? We sliced the hot potatoes, dressed them while they were still warm (warm potatoes are more absorbent than cool ones), and then served them up to our tasters. The salad looked mangled, as the warm potatoes consistently broke apart upon slic-

ing. We had chosen not to peel the potatoes for the sake of convenience and beauty, but the potato skins inevitably tore, leaving unsightly streaks. And the salad didn’t taste much better than it looked. Despite an assertively seasoned vinaigrette, the potatoes themselves were uniformly bland. Another irksome point was that it was hard to tell when the potatoes were done. Unevenly sized potatoes made it difficult to avoid some over- or undercooked potatoes in the finished dish. This wasn’t going to be as easy as we thought.

FRENCH POTATO SALAD WITH DIJON Servings: 4-6 Start to finish: 30 minutes 2 pounds small red potatoes, unpeeled, sliced 1/4 inch thick (Use small red potatoes measuring 1 to 2 inches in diameter) 2 tablespoons salt 1 garlic clove, peeled and threaded on skewer 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or Champagne vinegar 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 small shallot,

minced 1 tablespoon minced fresh chervil (If fresh chervil isn’t available, substitute an additional 1/2 tablespoon of minced parsley and an additional 1/2 teaspoon of tarragon) 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives 1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon Place potatoes in large saucepan, add water to cover by 1 inch, and bring to boil over high heat. Add salt, reduce heat to simmer, and cook until potatoes are tender and paring knife can be

slipped in and out of potatoes with little resistance, about 6 minutes. While potatoes are cooking, lower skewered garlic into simmering water and blanch for 45 seconds. Run garlic under cold running water, then remove from skewer and mince. Reserve 1/4 cup cooking water, then drain potatoes and arrange in tight single layer in rimmed baking sheet. Whisk oil, minced 7/8garlic, vinegar, mustard, pepper, and reserved potato cooking water together in bowl, then drizzle over potatoes. Let potatoes sit un-

til flavours meld, about 10 minutes. (Potatoes can be refrigerated for up to 8 hours return to room temperature before serving.) Transfer potatoes to large bowl. Combine shallot and herbs in small bowl, then sprinkle over potatoes and gently toss to coat using rubber spatula.

Kenai soccer honors seniors, sweeps Seward By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

The Seward boys got the first goal but Kenai Central got the last laugh Tuesday on a biting cold Senior Night at Kenai Central High School. The Kenai boys put a bow on the evening with a 7-1 win over Seward in Peninsula Conference play. Kenai jumped to 3-0-1 in conference and 4-2-1 overall, while the Seahawks dropped to 0-2 in conference and 0-2 overall. Earlier in the day, the Kenai girls dominated an 11-0 rout over the Seward girls, pushing Kenai’s season to 2-0-2 in conference, 3-1-2 overall. Seward dropped to 0-2 in both. Seward sophomore Collin Mullaly turned heads early in the boys game with a free kick goal that arced its way around a set Kenai defense for a 1-0 Seahawks lead just seven minutes into the game. It would be the only scoring for Seward as Kenai roared back with three unanswered goals in the first half. “We just got our heads in the game,” said senior striker Tomas Levy-Canedo. “We started to pressure a little more, got some goals in and started to pass a little more.” Levy-Canedo got the comeback started just three

minutes after Mullaly’s goal with a header on a corner kick from fellow senior Damien Redder, tying it at 1. Levy-Canedo ended up with two goals on the night, both headers on corner kicks from Redder. Koa Diorec tallied the go-ahead goal in the 20th minute on a tap-in in the goal box after Leif Lofquist pushed the ball deep. The Seahawks were

Weather shuffles softball schedule Staff report Peninsula Clarion

Snowy weather around the state has caused a shuffling of the softball schedule for Kenai Peninsula teams. Homer was originally supposed to host Kenai Central on Tuesday. However, due to weekend snow in Homer, that game was postponed and a new date is still being determined. The Homer field should be good for hosting Palmer on Thursday at 6 p.m., Kodiak on Friday at 7 p.m. and Kodiak on Saturday at 2 p.m. The Soldotna softball team had a trip to Fairbanks canceled. The Stars were to play Lathrop on Thursday, West Valley on Friday and Delta on Saturday. Instead, the Stars will host Kenai in a varsity nonconference game Thursday at 4 p.m. at the Soldotna Little League fields.

Sharks nip Vegas in OT By The Associated Press

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Barclay Goodrow scored 18:19 into overtime to send San Jose into the second round of the playoffs with a wild 5-4 win in Game 7 on Tuesday night. The Sharks erased a three-goal deficit by scoring four times on a disputed major penalty in the third period and Vegas tied it in the final minute of regulation. It started at 9:13 of the third after a bloody scene on the ice led to a major penalty on Cody Eakin and sent San Jose captain Joe Pavelski to the locker room dazed. BRUINS 5, MAPLE LEAFS 1 BOSTON — Joakim Nordstrom and Sean Kuraly each had a goal and assist, Tuukka Rask stopped 32 shots and Boston beat Toronto in Game 7 again to wrap up their first-round playoff series. Marcus Johansson added his first goal of the postseason for Boston and Charlie Coyle scored on an empty netter late in the third. Patrice Bergeron also had a late goal. It was the Bruins’ second straight Game 7 win over the Maples Leafs and third in three playoff matchups between the teams. Boston previously knocked Toronto out of the postseason with Game 7 victories in 2018 and 2013. The Maple Leafs have now lost six straight road Game 7s.

playing in only their second game all season after last weekend’s road trip to the Valley to play Redington and Houston was canceled to snowfall, so the early goal caught even Seward on its heels. “It surprised us to come out that way too,” said head coach Dustin Phillips, who said the set play was one that the Seahawks have See KICK, page A10

. . . Kick Continued from page A9

worked hard on in the early weeks of practice. “We talk about it a lot,” Phillips said. “Taking them quick to catch a team offguard, which is exactly what (Mullaly) did there.” Kenai head coach Shane Lopez said he felt the celebration of Senior Night left the Kards with a bit of pregame jitters that contributed to a lack of focus in the early minutes. “It’s Senior Night,” Lopez said. “It’s a fun celebration and all that, and to try to turn from that and go right into a game can sometimes be distracting. They weren’t focused and it took them a little while to get into their rhythm. “They got a lesson out of it.” The program celebrated 10 Kenai seniors before the boys game, with Zach Stockton, Livai Castrellon, Daniel Cazares, Francisco Garmen Munarriz, Travis McKinley, Charnchon Nammoon, Jacob Howard, Connor Felchle, Redder and Levy-Canedo all receiving recognition. The Kenai girls team recognized two varsity players in Savaya Bieber and Olivia Brewer. Levy-Canedo said Tuesday was special for the senior class. “It’s the last (season) playing with the boys,” LevyCanedo said. “We’ve been playing four years since middle school, since sixth grade, but we’ve still got a long season ahead of us.” After Levy-Canedo and Diorec scored to put Kenai into the lead midway through the first half, Lofquist got his foot on a pass to redirect into the net for a 3-1 Kenai lead in the 26th minute. In the second half, it took less than a minute for Kenai to add to its lead as Nate Beiser received an assist from Redder to score in the first minute of the half. Travis Verkuilen scored in the 45th minute, and Kenai got two more goals from Francisco Garmen Munarriz in the 74th and Levy-Canedo in the 79th minutes. In the girls game, the Kardinals netted eight second-half goals to run away in a lopsided score. Unofficially, Kenai outshot Seward 27-1 in the rout. Four players tallied two goals each as Alyssa Bucho, Olivia Brewer, Karley Harden and Damaris Severson all found the netting

twice. Bucho got the game started just two minutes in on a corner kick by Brewer. Brewer’s shot was initially denied by Seward goalkeeper Makaira Williams but Bucho got her foot on the ball to float it up over Williams’ head for a goal and 1-0 lead. Bucho notched her second goal eight minutes into the second half on another corner kick by Brewer, affirming the cohesiveness of the team. “Our forwards just kept working together really well,” Bucho said. “We definitely started meshing a lot more today, and our defense just always talks to us and pushes us to be better.” Kenai head coach Dan Verkuilen said he wanted the team to use Tuesday’s game to work on some valuable plays, and said there were many examples of what the Kardinals are capable of when they are operating at full potential. Several of the team’s goal came on pinpoint passing and quick shots on goal that had the Seward defense reeling. “This was a good opportunity to move some people around and try some different combinations,” Verkuilen said. “One of the goals for the day was a lot of quick one- and two-touch passes. One of our goals was to get some give-andgo opportunities.” Verkuilen called the Seahawks one of the better Seward teams he has seen in 20 years. “Those girls have been playing a long time, and for us we’re a majority young team,” Seward coach Coty Beck said. “We have a lot of freshmen who are starting, so a lot of those skills are beginning skills.” After Bucho’s opening goal, Brewer made it 2-0 in the 15th minute on a misplayed throw-in by Seward goalkeeper Makaira Williams. Jolie Peterkin made it 3-0 by halftime when she collected a rebound off Williams in the 27th minute and booted it over the goalie. Bucho’s goal in the 48th minute in the second half sparked a furious scoring purge by Kenai, as the Kards notched four goals in five minutes. Brewer scored in the 50th minute, Hardin scored in the 52nd and 53rd minutes to put Kenai up 7-0. Seward’s Riley VonBorstel replaced Williams in goal from there on out, and Kenai was able to score four more times. Taylor Pierce tallied a goal in the 69th

Raptors rout Magic By The Associated Press

TORONTO — The Toronto Raptors turned in another dominant defensive effort, extending their playoff winning streak to a team-record four and clinching a berth in the second round. Kawhi Leonard scored 27 points, Pascal Siakam added 24 and the Raptors routed the Orlando Magic 115-96 on Tuesday night, winning their first-round playoff series in five games. Kyle Lowry scored 14 points as the Raptors finished off the Magic with ease, bouncing back from a Game 1 defeat to win by double-digits in three of the next four. Toronto led by as many as 37 in the clincher, their biggest-ever margin in a playoff game.

Nuggets 108, Spurs 90

DENVER — After a sputtering start to their postseason, the Denver Nuggets are starting to look like the team that ended a six-year playoff drought in such dramatic fashion. Nikola Jokic has a lot to do with it. Jokic had 16 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists and fed Jamal Murray (23 points) repeatedly in Denver’s 108-90 romp of the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night. “Their chemistry is almost romantic,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “They care about each other, they love each other. They play for each other. That’s when we’re at our best.” “I mean, we’re growing,” Jokic said. “We’re both really passionate about basketball. 76ers 122, Nets 100 So when we have some good PHILADELPHIA — Joel plays or whatever, we just want Embiid showed no mercy.

minute, Severson scored twice in the 71st and 73rd minutes and Alissa Maw capped the day with a goal in the final minute of regulation. Homer soccer sweeps Nikiski The hosting Homer soccer teams rolled over both teams from Nikiski on Tuesday in Peninsula Conference action. Still recuperating from games against Southeast teams last weekend, the boys beat the Bulldogs 5-1 while the Mariners steamrolled Nikiski for a 9-0 victory. These wins bring the Homer boys to 2-1-1 in the conference and 4-3-2 overall this season. The Homer girls have not lost to a fellow conference team yet, and Tuesday’s game brought the Mariners to 2-0-2. The Lady Mariners are 4-1-4 overall this season. The Nikiski boys are 0-3-0 in the conference and 2-3-0 overall. The girls are also 0-3-0 in the conference, and are 0-3-2 overall this season. In the boys game, Daniel Reutov came out of the gate strong by earning Homer’s first goal unassisted less than two minutes into the first half. Reutov then assisted the second goal, which went to Austin Shafford about 4 1/2 minutes

into the second half. Reutov scored again on an assist from Phinny Weston about 14 minutes into the second half, followed by a goal from Ethan Pitzman on an assist from Shafford. Homer’s final goal was netted by Dexter Lowe late in the second half on an assist from Reutov. Nikiski’s lone goal came from a penalty kick made by Isaiah Gray, which slipped past goalkeeper Xander Kulhanek. Homer coach Warren Waldorf said the team is still recovering from a three-game stint in Southeast, in which his main goalie, Tucker Weston, got hurt during the first game. In Tuesday’s game, Waldorf said it looked like his team had a better idea of what they were trying to accomplish on the field. They moved the ball better against Nikiski than they did last weekend, he said. Waldorf said he’s looking forward to giving his varsity team a rest and time to train over the next week or two. On the girls side, the Mariners steamed ahead to a decisive victory against Nikiski, starting with three unassisted goals in the first half from Laura Inama, Kappa Reutov and Sela Weisser. In the second half, Re-

utov scored again about 3 1/2 minutes in on an assist from Weisser. Inama then had two goals in a row, with assists from Reutov both times. Aiyana Cline netted a goal of her own later in the second half, unassisted, before assisting a goal by Jessica Sonnen. In the very last minutes of the game, Paige Jones took the ball up the field from the back to score her own unassisted goal. Coach Mike Tozzo said there were some things the team was focused on improving coming into Tuesday’s game. He said that in the Southeast games, the team had struggled with balancing the right number of players to get back on defense. They did a better job of that against Nikiski, he said. “I also thought that we were winning a lot of 50/50 balls, and you know, really keeping our passes along

the ground,” Tozzo said. Homer chose to play into the wind during the first half on purpose, he said, so that they could work on keeping the ball low. “I thought we accomplished a lot of the things that we set out to do today,” Tozzo said. Still, Tozzo isn’t getting comfortable just yet. He said the team will still need to play a bit better to keep up with other teams this season, and to make sure the team is ready for the region tournament. The girls soccer team next plays at 6 p.m. Thursday at home against Voznesenka. Both the Homer boys and girls teams will host Grace Christian this Friday at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. The Homer-Nikiski report was contributed by Megan Pacer of the Homer News.

Today in History Today is Wednesday, April 24, the 114th day of 2019. There are 251 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 24, 1980, the United States launched an unsuccessful attempt to free the American hostages in Iran, a mission that resulted in the deaths of eight U.S. servicemen. On this date: In 1800, Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress. In 1877, federal troops were ordered out of New Orleans, ending the North’s post-Civil War rule in the South. In 1915, in what’s considered the start of the Armenian genocide, the Ottoman Empire began rounding up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople. In 1916, some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Rising by seizing several key sites in Dublin. (The rising was put down by British forces five days later.) In 1932, in the Free State of Prussia, the Nazi Party gained a plurality of seats in parliamentary elections. In 1967, Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov was killed when his Soyuz 1 spacecraft smashed into the Earth after his parachutes failed to deploy properly during re-entry; he was the first human spaceflight fatality. In 1970, the People’s Republic of China launched its first satellite, which kept transmitting a song, “The East Is Red.” In 1990, the space shuttle Discovery blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying the $1.5 billion Hubble Space Telescope. In 1995, the final bomb linked to the Unabomber exploded inside the Sacramento, California, offices of a lobbying group for the wood products industry, killing chief lobbyist Gilbert B. Murray. (Theodore Kaczynski was later sentenced to four lifetimes in prison for a series of bombings that killed three men and injured 29 others.) In 2003, U.S. forces in Iraq took custody of Tariq Aziz (TAH’-rihk ah-ZEEZ’), the former Iraqi deputy prime minister. China shut down a Beijing hospital as the global death toll from SARS surpassed 260. In 2005, Pope Benedict XVI formally began his stewardship of the Roman Catholic Church; the former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger said in his installation homily that as pontiff he would listen to the will of God in governing the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics. In 2013, in Bangladesh, a shoddily constructed eight-story commercial building housing garment factories collapsed, killing more than 1,100 people. Ten years ago: Mexico shut down schools, museums, libraries and state-run theaters across its overcrowded capital in hopes of containing a deadly swine flu outbreak. Back-to-back suicide bombers struck near a Shiite shrine in Baghdad, killing 71. Five years ago: An Afghan government security guard opened fire on foreign doctors at a Kabul hospital, killing three Americans in the latest of a deadly string of attacks on Western civilians in the capital. The tiny Pacific nation of the Marshall Islands took on the United States and the world’s eight other nuclear-armed nations with an unprecedented lawsuit demanding they meet their obligations toward disarmament and accusing them of “flagrant violations” of international law. One year ago: Former police officer Joseph DeAngelo was arrested at his home near Sacramento, California, after DNA linked him to crimes attributed to the so-called Golden State Killer; authorities believed he committed 13 murders and more than 50 rapes in the 1970s and 1980s. (DeAngelo is awaiting trial.) Today’s Birthdays: Movie director-producer Richard Donner is 89. Actress Shirley MacLaine is 85. Actress-singer-director Barbra Streisand is 77.

Thought for Today: “The door to the past is a strange door. It swings open and things pass through it, but they pass in one direction only. No man can return across that threshold, though he can look down still and see the green light waver in the water weeds.” -- Loren Eiseley, American anthropologist (1907-1977).

According to the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, the provider should not engage in sexual contact with a patient if the contact commences after the practitionerpatient relationship is established. Because you Abigail Van Buren don’t trust his motives, you should not see him again socially. DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 28 years. Over the past three years, I have survived a cancer diagnosis and a serious car accident. Earlier this year, I found out my wife has been leading a double life. The doctor says it is because she’s bipolar. Over the past year, she has had five boyfriends, three online and two in person. None of what she posted online is repeatable as it is X-rated. It came to light after a checkup and blood tests that resulted in an STD diagnosis. Now my doctor wants to test me for HIV. HIV is permanent, no cure, but having it would destroy me. I am still with my wife, but I have lost all respect. All I can think of is how I was betrayed and

Hints from Heloise

Rubes

By Leigh Rubin

HHH You could be in a situation you’d prefer not to be in. Tap into your creativity; you’ll find the exit point. Don’t allow unnecessary stress to get in your way. Confusion will work itself through. Express your caring and concerns. Tonight: As you like it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You have the ability to make a difference as you rarely have. You don’t need to settle, but you do need to commit to a certain direction. Confusion is the earmark of the day. Make sure that everyone is on the same page. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You’re keen on letting others know what you think. However, how you state your case or express your opinions is often what defines success. You know what’s needed. As other requests come in, do only what you have to. Tonight: As you like it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Tension could build over a financial matter. You might not see eye to eye with someone else, but it might not be necessary. You could feel that others are refusing to be logical. Tonight: Make your own decisions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You have an opportunity presented to you. Confusion and a potential misunderstanding could cause you to look at this matter differently or possibly not even hear the offer. Stay centered; you might hear what’s being discussed more clearly. Tonight: As you might like. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Absorb information with care. Once you digest all that’s said, how you feel about what you’re hearing could change radically. Take your time before giving any responses or thoughts. You’ll have an unusual outlook. Tonight: A must appearance. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Zero in on an important meeting. Although many controversial ideas could be tossed out, some might have inlaid pearls of wisdom. Think about what’s being presented. You don’t need to comment unless you really want to. Tonight: Join friends. BORN TODAY Singer/actress Barbra Streisand (1942), author Sue Grafton (1940), fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier (1952)

Save money and help your health! Dear Heloise: My husband and I decided to economize this year, and one way we will be saving money is to “BROWN-BAG IT” to work instead of eating out. When I prepare dinner, I make a little extra so we can put the leftovers in plastic containers and microwave them for lunch the next day. It’s not only economical, it’s healthier, because we limit our use of salt and fats. -- Tessa N., Sparks, Nev. SLOW COOKER Dear Heloise: I’m a culinary teacher, and I teach my students how to use a slow cooker. Among the things I tell them is to never peek inside while the slow cooker is working. You just add extra time to the food being cooked. The slow cooker is a safe appliance and saves them a lot of time preparing dinner. They can cut up the vegetables the night before and store them in a plastic bag until they’re ready to put in the slow cooker. In warm weather, it doesn’t heat up the whole house, either. -- Violet J. in Montreal SOMETHING IS BUGGING ME Dear Heloise: When I got home today and was unpacking my groceries, I found a live spider, a large one, among the bananas. My neighbor said she took home a large cockroach from a different food store. We both called the stores to report this problem but were told that this happens from time to time. Next time I’m in my local grocery store, I’ll be a lot more careful about inspecting the items I select! -- Lisa O., Odessa, Texas

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, April 24, 2019: This year, you’ll be driven to learn more and understand different cultures better. Travel might be involved as well. If single, you could meet a special person while taking a class or hopping on an airplane. Take your time committing. If you’re attached, exploring other ideas could become a significant part of your relationship. CAPRICORN seems to rein in your adventurous spirit. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Confusion surrounds the bestlaid plans. Try to sort through who, when and where. Confirm appointments; you’ll feel a lot better as a result. A discussion might seem futile, but it isn’t. Be more aware of your image and how people respond to you as a result. Tonight: A force to behold. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Refuse to be politely coaxed into seeing what’s going on. Your sense of humor emerges once more. You discover the value of having a lot to do and not getting caught up in problems that stem from someone’s mood. Tonight: Try a movie. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You feel as though someone doesn’t get the difference between you and another person. At the moment, you do best when relating on a one-on-one level, but you could still be confused after a discussion. Tonight: Spend a special few hours with a loved one. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your emotional nature takes you down a new path. You could wonder what might be best. A partner or close friend could give you an earful. This person feels the need to communicate his or her opinions. Listen; you might gain some important insight. Tonight: Be yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You could be at the end of your line. No matter what you do or why, it somehow affects your daily life. You want to be efficient yet maintain the lightness that’s associated with your sign. Confusion surrounds the best of intentions. Tonight: Put your feet up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

what little time I may have left. I don’t have the money to seek help. Can you recommend some way to help me through this? -- BETRAYED IN THE SOUTH DEAR BETRAYED: You have been through a lot, and I empathize with you. Have another talk with your doctor, and when you do, please allow him to test you. There have been major changes in the treatment of HIV since the 1980s, when it was an automatic death sentence. Many HIV-positive individuals now lead long, productive lives because they got tested and medicated, so please try to control your anxiety. A final thought: If your wife refuses to get help for her mental illness, then you should consult a divorce lawyer.

DEAR ABBY: I am a licensed acupuncturist. One of my patients (also male) asked me to dinner, and since he seemed like a decent guy, I decided to go. After we finished and the $60 bill arrived, he told me he had forgotten his wallet and I needed to pay, which I did. After dinner he took me back to his house to supposedly show me some recent renovations, and within 10 minutes he tried to kiss me. Fortunately for me, the date ended well enough. He asked me out again the next week. I figured everyone deserves a second chance, so I said yes. Well, THIS time he took me to a more expensive restaurant and -- guess what? He forgot his wallet again. This time it cost me $90. After dinner we went for a walk by the water and, when he tried to give me a hug, he knocked my only pair of glasses into the river. I don’t know if it was pre-planned or not, but because I had driven to his house, he knew I wouldn’t be able to legally drive home without my glasses. This forced me to spend the night at his house. That I am able to retell this story means I survived that night, but what do you think? Does this guy sound like a loser or what? -- STUCK WITH THE BILL DEAR STUCK: “This guy” strikes me as irresponsible or a manipulator. At the very least he should reimburse you for the glasses. I’m not sure if it’s ethical for you to be dat-

Public Safety Police reports n On Apr. 17 at about 7:10 p.m., Kenai police responded to a domestic violence incident in Inlet Woods. Officers witnessed the assault and arrested Jonathan A.

at Coal Creek was replaced with an 18-foot-diameter culvert. Forkner said that the old culvert was perched slightly above the waterline and made it difficult for fish to move upstream. The new larger culvert will allow safer passage for fish and other animals crossing underneath the Sterling highway. This portion of the Sterling Highway has reopened as of Sunday, and one-lane traffic is being directed by construction crews as maintenance on the Coal Creek Culvert is finished. Crews will also install new culverts at Slikok Tributary, Clam Gulch and Crooked Creek as part of the project. The project has a scheduled completion date of October 2019 and the DOT hotline for this project is 907262-1042. Also on the Sterling Highway is a rehabilitation proj-

Teal said. The governor’s plan will also likely result in the state pulling from the Constitutional Budget Reserve (CBR) in future years, Teal said during his presentation. The House proposal will not result in pulling from this account, Teal said. The CBR was established by a statewide vote in 1990, and can be used under certain conditions to fund state government. As of March 31, according to the Alaska Department of Revenue’s Treasury Division, the CBR had $1.75 billion in it. The only point where the House’s plan differs greatly from the governor’s goals is that it doesn’t leave as much money for the permanent fund dividend. PFDs could dip all the way down to about $800 in the coming years before climbing to $1,500 or more in a few years, Teal projected.

ect from Mile 58 to Mile 79. Crews began work between Mile 58 and Mile 60 on Tuesday. In addition to improving general road conditions, the project will include replacing a culvert at the East Fork Moose River as well as upgrading the pedestrian walkway leading to the Skyline trail. Delays are to be expected 24 hours a day, and Forkner said that crews will do most of the heavy work at night to mitigate these delays. There are also speed reduction zones to 45 mph at Miles 59-61, 63-68 and 75-76 and a reduction to 25 mph at Mile 61.5 due to a narrow detour. The DOT hotline for this project is 1-833-206-4717. On the Kenai Spur Highway, crews are working to expand the highway to five lanes — two in each direction with a center turn lane — from Mile 5 to Mile 8 to match the number of lanes starting at Mile 8. In addition, a culvert will be installed at Mile 7. Drivers should expect detours and flagging

operations as crews construct a new pedestrian pathway, improve drainage and install new signage and striping. Forkner said that there will be no delays from July 10 to July 31 to account for dipnetting season. The DOT Hotline for this project is 907-262-0906. Forkner said that bidding has started for a project along the length of Beaver Loop Road that has been in the works for several years. The project will involve widening the shoulders to 8 feet and installing a separated bike path. Forkner said that construction for this project should begin later this year. Finally, Forkner said that DOT plans to replace a culvert and repair erosion damage on Mile 9.6 of Kalifornsky Beach Road later this year. No timeline has yet been established for this project, but Forkner said that any potential delays will also take dip netting season into account.

Neither the House nor the governor included the PFD in their budget proposals. The governor has pledged to use the state’s traditional PFD formula to pay a PFD of about $3,000 this year, while the House budget allows for a PFD of just under $1,300, House Finance Co-chair Neal Foster said in a recent press conference. “The governor is right when he says the House proposal is an incomplete fix,” Teal said. “You will not have a complete fix until dividends are determined.” Ed King, the head economist for the Office of Management and Budget, responded to Teal’s presentation with a lengthy thread of tweets Tuesday. Members of the Senate Finance Committee have been talking about the PFD as if it’s another state agency competing with the rest of the departments for funding, and King said he believes it’s clear the Legislature is not prioritizing the PFD. “If the Legislature treats a PFD reduction as the con-

fiscation of income, they would be wise to evaluate if that is the most desirable form of taxation,” King tweeted. “If they treat it as a budget item, they would be wise to evaluate the impact of those cuts versus others.” That goes back to Micciche’s point. Both the House and the governor’s plan will take money from households in their own ways, as he pointed out, and he and his cohorts on the committee will continue to evaluate which one will have a more positive impact on the state. The PFD was $1,600 per person in 2018. For the past three years, the state has used PFD funds to help fund state government, resulting in smaller PFDs. Starting Wednesday, the committee members will address the governor’s crime bills. Senate Bill 32, which aims to make penalties harsher for drug offenses, is on the agenda for 9 a.m. Wednesday. Senate Bill 35, which makes penalties harsher for sex offenses, is on the agenda for 9 a.m. Thursday.
