Anchorage utility begins draining city lake to repair pipe ANCHORAGE — An Anchorage utility is draining a city lake to repair a sewer line. Anchorage television station KTUU reports Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utilities is draining Campbell Lake to fix a line damaged by the 7.1 magnitude earthquake on Nov. 30. Crews in March made temporary repairs on a 200-foot segment along the north shore of Campbell Lake. Draining of the manmade lake began Sunday and it will take two or three days for dammed water to flow down Campbell Creek. The utility has been working with wildlife authorities to ensure that the repair does not affect fish populations. Fish are expected to make their way into the original stream bed along the bottom of the lake. Permanent repairs must be finished by May 10. — Associated Press

Peninsula heads into fire season Ninilchik fire 12th to occur in region since April 1

By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Alaska’s Division of Forestry is currently monitoring what remains of a brush fire that occurred in Ninilchik on Saturday and burned 2.5 acres near a subdivision on the southern end of Oil Well Road. The fire was first reported at 1:18 p.m. on Saturday, according to an update from the Division of Forestry via AKfireinfo. com. Ninilchik Emergency Services were the first to arrive on scene and evacuated two homes that were in immediate danger. The siding of one of the homes was partially damaged, but firefighters were able to contain the fire before any structures were destroyed or sustained significant damage.

Rosenstein submits letter of resignation By ERIC TUCKER and MICHAEL BALSAMO Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein submitted his resignation Monday after a two-year run defined by his appointment of a special counsel to investigate connections between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia. His last day will be May 11, ending a tumultuous relationship with Trump and a tenure that involved some of the most consequential, even chaotic, moments of the president’s administration. When Trump wanted to fire then-FBI Director James Comey, who was overseeing the Russia probe, Rosenstein wrote the memo that the White House used to justify the dismissal. But eight days later, Rosenstein took a

Names of presumed jail fire victims released By Rachel D’Oro Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — Guards were unable to save two prisoners from a weekend fire that broke out in a village jail because they were driven

out by heat and smoke, Alaska authorities said Monday. One of two guards at the scene of the early Sunday morning fire in Napakiak was seriously injured trying to free the inmates, who died in the

blaze. The other guard said a prisoner set fire to a mattress, but it was unclear how fire-starting materials got into a cell. Troopers said the fire victims have been tentatively identified as See JAIL, page A11

can wrath and angry Trump tweets and left him repeatedly appearing on the verge

of being fired. Yet in the end, he was largely in Trump’s corner. He joined Attorney General William Barr in determining that Trump had not obstructed the Mueller investigation — reaching a conclusion that Mueller himself pointedly did not make. He defended Barr against criticism that he was spinning Mueller’s findings in the president’s favor and stood silently behind him as Barr praised Trump’s cooperation at a news conference before a redacted version of the report was released. In his resignation letter to Trump, Rosenstein paid tribute to the Justice Department’s accomplishments and to Trump himself, even praising the sense of humor of a man who once retweeted an image that showed Rosenstein and other officials jailed for See LETTER, page A11

Official: 3 dead in helicopter crash in Honolulu suburb By JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHER Associated Press

HONOLULU — Fire and helicopter parts rained from the sky Monday in a suburban Honolulu community as a tour helicopter crashed and killed all three people aboard, officials and witnesses said. “All you could see was fire,” witness Melissa Solomon said, explaining that she was driving on the street when she looked up to see flames and a helicopter plummeting in front of her. She said she had turn onto another street because she was afraid more pieces were going to fall from the sky onto her and her 16-year-old daughter sitting in the front passenger seat. “We could have been smashed by it,” she said. Paramedics responding to an unrelated call from a patient with leg pain about 30 yards away heard “a horrific bang,” said Shayne Enright, a spokeswoman for Honolulu Emergency Medical Services. When they turned around, they saw a helicopter on fire. “When they got there, neighbors were doing a heroic job trying to put out the fire and also trying to get the patients away from the burning aircraft,” Enright said. The crash occurred in Kailua, a town of 50,000 people about a 30-minute drive from downtown Honolulu. The crash site was on a two-lane road amid one and two-story homes. Darel Robinson was doing construction work at a house about a half-mile from the crash site when he heard what sounded like helicopter blades thumping and then a loud boom.

(Bruce Asato/Honolulu Star-Advertiser via AP)

“It was going nose down and parts were starting to fly off,” he said. Megan Lacy, of Alabama, was visiting friends when they heard the crash. They went outside, expecting to find two cars after they had hit each other. “We were really confused,” she said. “And then we heard screaming and the word ‘fire,’ and I saw smoke,” she said. Debris damaged her rental car about 100 yards from the crash. A resident said he heard the morning crash then saw a ball of fire in a road when he ran from his house. Leleo Knappenberger told Hawaii News Now that his mother heard the helicopter flying over the house, making a strange noise. He said he later saw what appeared to be the tail end of the helicopter. “It’s all smashed to pieces,” he said. Federal Aviation Ad-

ministration spokesman Ian Gregor said the agency believes three people were on board the four-seat, Robinson R44 aircraft. He said the circumstances of the crash were unknown. No further details were available on those killed. The helicopter, which was built in 2000, is registered to United Helicopter Leasing LLC of Honolulu, according to FAA records. State business records show Nicole Vandelaar as the manager. A woman who answered the phone at the business and identified herself as Nicole declined to immediately comment, saying she was too busy to talk. A website for the Honolulu tour helicopter company Novictor Helicopters identified Nicole Vandelaar as founder and CEO. The website said she is an expert pilot commercially licensed to fly helicopters and airplanes. A Novictor helicopter

crashed on a sandbar in Kaneohe in October after the pilot lost consciousness twice. That crash resulted in injuries to the pilot and two passengers. It was also a Robinson R44 aircraft. State Rep. Cynthia Thielen, who represents Kailua, said she wants the FAA to prohibit tour flights over Hawaii’s residential areas and national parks. The Republican lawmaker wants Hawaii’s congressional delegation to ask the FAA to implement such restrictions. Thielen also called for tour helicopter flights to be grounded until an investigation into the crash is completed. Kailua is home to a Marine Corps base. In recent years it’s become a popular destination for tourists to go to the beach, hike and shop. Former President Barack Obama stayed at a rented beachfront vacation home in the town during the winter holidays when he was in the White House.

Timothy Burgess gave him no credit for the seven years he served in a Mexico prison after his conviction there for smuggling cash, guns and ammunition, U.S. prosecutors said. Valenzuela was extradited to Alaska in September. He was 26 in 2011 when he worked as a cash vault services manager for KeyBank in Anchorage. At the time of the theft, investigators said, he was worried that the bank was going to make his job obsolete and he could be terminated. In the week before the theft, he bought an airline ticket for his girlfriend to fly to Seattle and then stole $30,000 from Keybank, using $24,000 to reserve a private jet. Bank policy called for having dual controls over the vault, but Valenzuela ignored the rule while training new employees, prosecutors said. On the day of the theft, a Friday, he told the branch manager he was going to

organize an ice cream social for bank customers and would stay late to clean up. Late that night, without dual controls in place, Valenzuela was able to enter the vault, take the cash and board the private plane to Seattle, authorities said. He set the timer on the vault lock for the maximum time allowed, giving himself six days to escape. In Seattle, he bought a car and an AK-47 rifle then drove with his girlfriend to Mexico. The theft was not discovered until they crossed the border, but the caper came to a quick conclusion on Aug. 2, 2011, less than a week after it occurred. During a random search of Valenzuela’s luggage at a checkpoint, Mexican authorities found the rifle, ammunition and $3.8 million in cash. During sentencing, Judge Burgess cited the magnitude of the crime and Valenzuela’s lack of candour with the court, prosecutors said. Valenzuela had stashed $500,000 in Washington state in case he was caught, prosecutors said. That money has not been recovered.

What Others Say

Supreme Court cases could settle law on LGBTQ discrimination Title VII of the Civil Rights Act

of 1964 makes it illegal for employers to discriminate on the basis of a person’s sex. On Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to address whether gay and transgender workers are covered by the landmark provision, in a trio of cases — two concluding that federal law protects such employees, and one resolving that it doesn’t. The cases open the door for the justices to settle the issue for the whole nation. The cases are expected to be decided by the summer of 2020 — that is, in the heat of the presidential campaign, when voters will be judging candidates in part on where they stand on gay and transgender rights. That will make this a political issue, to be sure, but there is significantly more at stake for individual workers. The Justice Department sowed confusion in 2017 when it went against the stated position of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency that oversees enforcement of Title VII, and argued before an appeals court that Congress never intended to extend protections to gay workers. That much may be true; the law as written makes no mention of sexual orientation or transgender status. Which could also explain a separate brief filed in October, in which the department told the Supreme Court that Title VII, as lawmakers wrote it, “does not apply to discrimination against an individual based on his or her gender identity.” With the passage of time, however, a number of courts, including the Supreme Court, have interpreted the prohibition against sex discrimination generously. Over the past 55 years, thanks to that forward-looking reading of the law, Title VII has addressed harms that Congress never foresaw, such as forbidding sexual harassment and gender stereotyping. Relying on some of those precedents — and the guidance of the E.E.O.C., which in recent years has extended the reach of Title VII to lesbian, gay and transgender employees — modern-day courts have also begun to reconsider their prior decisions on such rights in the workplace, expanding the reach of the law. As Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in a unanimous 1998 ruling in favor of a male worker who was subject to same-sex harassment, “statutory prohibitions often go beyond the principal evil to cover reasonably comparable evils, and it is ultimately the provisions of our laws rather than the principal concerns of our legislators by which we are governed.” So Congress may not have the last word on this matter. What’s more, absent direct action from lawmakers, the Supreme Court would be wise to keep the current progress of the law in place — and not undermine its own prior cases that helped make the American workplace more welcoming and inclusive to all. — The New York Times, April 22

Fake news has fractured public trust

“Fake news!” Almost daily we hear President Donald Trump or White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders publicly proclaiming that The New York Times, Washington Post and news media are promulgating fake news. We hear assertions that the Mueller report is nothing more than a “witch hunt” concocted by 14 “angry” Democrats. Through tweets, blogs, Facebook and YouTube, we are besieged with an ongoing glut of misinformation, misrepresentation, distortion, half-truths and spin. White House press releases and Fox News commentators regularly broadcast fabrications that have virtually no basis in fact. Don’t believe anything you hear unless it has been fact-checked by a reliable source. And should we also question the reliability of the reliable source? Prior to the 2016 election, we the public assumed what we heard from our government, our politicians, our news analysts and our media was essentially accurate and reliable. We could and primarily did accept what we heard unless some hard evidence surfaced to question or challenge it. One might say the default setting of the public at large was, and had been for some decades, mainly “yes.” That is no longer true. The public trust has been fractured. It has been shattered. The fake news plague has shifted our default setting from “yes” to “no.”

A laska V oices B ill D illon Our caution light is always on. We no longer impute the assumption of underlying positive intent behind what we see and hear through our newspapers, electronic news and social media. We are more disposed to suspect negative, devious or malicious underlying intent. Both culturally and personally this has had a profound effect on us and how we respond to our world. With our default setting at “yes,” we are basically in a credulous stance. We sort what we’re hearing for the truth in it. We try the viewpoints presented on to see if we like where they take us. Do they fit with our values? Can we build on them? Do they help take things where we want them to go? A “yes” default setting is essentially grounded in hope. It draws us to listening, involvement, openness, flexibility and often even cooperation and commitment. With our default setting at “no,” we are principally in a skeptical, suspicious doubting stance. We seek the error in what we hear, assume it is untrue or faulty so as to discount it or surface its weaknesses.

We put on our negative filter and sort for what is wrong with it. We are disposed to be against or apart from what we hear. We are not focused on what we want or how we want things to be, we are instead focused on what we do not want and how we don’t want things to be. We tend to move from skepticism to cynicism. The “no” default setting is essentially grounded in fear and distrust. It often leads to hardness, rigidity, disengagement, closing up, detachment, aggressiveness, apathy or passivity. I believe this public trust fracture has knocked our vision of who we are off stage center. It has shifted our focus from want to don’t want, from trust to distrust. Our democracy cannot properly function on a default setting of distrust. It can’t lead us where we want to go. Like our computers, our default settings are automatic. They are below our conscious awareness. We go to them without even thinking. Fortunately, again like our computers, we can reprogram our default settings and intentionally switch on “yes” when taking in new information while keeping “no” in reserve to inhibit any slips into gullible naiveté. For the good of ourselves and the good of our democracy, it is time we did that. Bill Dillon lives in Juneau.

News analysis

Impeach or investigate? Democrats see no reason to choose By LISA MASCARO AP Congressional Correspondent

WASHINGTON — Whatever happens next, don’t call it impeachment. House Democrats have been careful not to rush to impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump in the aftermath of Robert Mueller’s report, despite calls to do so by high-profile lawmakers and 2020 presidential contenders. But as Congress resumes Monday, the Democratic oversight and investigations agenda is starting to look a lot like the groundwork that would be needed to launch an impeachment inquiry. At some point, it’s a political difference rather than a practical one. “I don’t think there’s a magical moment at which proceedings become ‘really’ impeachment proceedings,” said Cornell Law School professor Josh Chafetz. The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear testimony from Attorney General William Barr on Thursday, despite resistance from the administration. The Oversight Committee has reached an agreement with the White House for testimony this week on security clearances. The Intelligence Committee is probing Trump’s financial dealings. And the Ways & Means Committee is pursuing Trump’s tax returns. “The House has such broad oversight powers that it really doesn’t matter whether they’re geared toward impeachment, toward legislating, toward overseeing the functioning of the executive branch, etc.,” Chafetz said. “At the end of the day, for the purposes of the powers available to the House, I don’t think it makes much of a difference whether they

use the word ‘impeachment’ or not.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has insisted the door is neither open nor closed to impeachment. Instead, she says, Congress is taking a step-by-step approach in exerting its role as a check on the executive branch. It will lead wherever it leads, and the public can decide. While Republicans and others in Washington are ready to move on from the report from special counsel Robert Mueller, Democrats in Congress are still fighting to see it. The Judiciary Committee chairman, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., subpoenaed for a full and un-redacted copy of the 400-page report, and its underlying materials. He also wants Mueller to testify before the panel by May 21. Pelosi suggests that Congress will have more to say on impeachment after lawmakers — and the American public — digests the findings of the two-year probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction by Trump. “In every way he is unfit to be the president of the United States,” Pelosi said in an interview with The Associated Press earlier this month. “Does that make it — is that an impeachable offense? Well it depends on what we see in the report.” Pelosi says she sets a “very high bar for impeachment because I think it’s very divisive in the country.” In many ways, House Democrats are trying to have it both ways — pursuing the investigations that could serve as a prelude to impeachment proceedings without taking the politically fraught step of calling it impeachment. The balancing act reflects recent polling that shows Americans are interested

in getting more information, but also split. A poll by The Associated PressNORC Center for Public Affairs Research ahead of the report’s release this month showed that even with the Mueller probe complete, 53% said Congress should continue to investigate Trump’s ties with Russia, while 45% said Congress should not. A similar percentage, 53%, said Congress should take steps to impeach Trump if he is found to have obstructed justice, even if he did not have inappropriate contacts with Russia. While high-profile Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and presidential contenders Elizabeth Warren and Beto O’Rouke, have called for the House to begin impeachment proceedings, others have not. For many House Democrats, particularly newly-elected freshmen representing districts Trump won in 2018, putting their names to a floor vote to launch an impeachment inquiry would likely become politically fraught. Sarah Binder, a professor of political science at George Washington University, said as long as those cross currents exist within the House Democratic caucus, “it’s in Pelosi’s interest to slow down the impeachment train, but hold the administration accountable for Trump’s first two year in office.” At this stage, whether Congress is conducting oversight or holding impeachment proceedings, the tools are mostly the same — subpoenas, hearings, investigations. But that could change, as Trump is refusing to comply with subpoenas for administration officials to testify and blocking Congress from obtaining more information.

Police, FBI thwart plan to bomb Nazi rally IS leader appears in video for 1st time in 5 years

By BRIAN MELLEY Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — An Army veteran who converted to Islam and discussed launching various terror attacks throughout Southern California was arrested as he plotted to bomb a white supremacist rally as retribution for the New Zealand mosque attacks, federal prosecutors said Monday. Mark Domingo, an infantryman who served a combat stint in Afghanistan, was arrested Friday after visiting a park in Long Beach where authorities said he planned to plant home-made explosive devices made with nail-filled pressure cookers in advance of a Nazi rally scheduled Sunday. Domingo, 26, was arrested on a charge of providing material support to terrorists. A criminal complaint said he had been planning since March to “manufacture and use a weapon of mass destruction in order to commit mass murder.” U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna told a news conference that Domingo supported violent jihad and spoke about becoming a martyr and of pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group if it established a presence in the United States. “This is a case in which law enforcement was able to identify a man consumed with hate and bent on mass murder,

and stop him before he could carry out his attack,” Hanna said. “The criminal case outlines a chilling terrorism plot that developed over the past two months and targeted innocent Americans that he expected to gather this past weekend.” Investigators said Domingo posted an online message March 3 that said “America needs another Vegas event,” an apparent reference to the 2017 mass shooting that killed 59. He allegedly said it would spark civil unrest to weaken “America by giving them a taste of the terror they

gladly spread all over the world.” After Domingo began to discuss seeking revenge for the March 15 attacks that killed 50 people at New Zealand mosques, a confidential source who has worked with the FBI since 2013 began chatting with him about his plans. Domingo said he had an assault rifle, semi-automatic rifle and several magazines of ammunition. He discussed picking off Jews walking to synagogue, shooting police officers or attacking a church or military base, according

to investigators. When the source asked him how he planned to carry out violence without getting caught, court records said Domingo replied: “Martyrdom, bro.” He also allegedly discussed killing a neighbor he was upset with as a prelude to broader violence and later contemplated bombing the Santa Monica Pier, where he said a summer attack on the crowded tourist spot would maximize casualties because people wouldn’t be able to escape the blast in the enclosed space.

BEIRUT — The shadowy leader of the Islamic State group claimed to appear for the first time in five years in a video released by the extremist group’s propaganda arm on Monday, acknowledging defeat in the group’s last stronghold in Syria but vowing a “long battle” ahead. The man said to be Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the video also claimed the Easter Day bombings in Sri Lanka which killed over 250 people were “part of the revenge” that awaits the West. Despite numerous claims about his death in the past few years, al-Baghdadi’s whereabouts remain a mystery. Many of his top aides have been killed, mostly by U.S.led coalition airstrikes. He is among the few senior IS commanders still at large after two years of steady battlefield losses that saw the self-styled “caliphate” shrink from an area the size of Britain to a tiny speck in the Euphrates River valley. The video released by a media outlet run by the extremists, Al-Furqan, shows al-Baghdadi with a bushy grey and red beard, wearing a black robe with a beige vest and seated on the floor with what appears to be an AK47

rifle propped up next to him. He is speaking with three men seated opposite him whose faces were covered and blotted out. It is his first video appearance since he delivered a sermon at the al-Nuri mosque in the Iraqi city of Mosul in 2014. In that video, he appeared as a black-robed figure with a trimmed black beard to deliver a sermon from the pulpit of the mosque in which he urged Muslims around the world to swear allegiance to the caliphate and obey him as its leader. Since then, he has only released audio messages through the group’s media outlets. In the video released Monday, al-Baghdadi acknowledged that IS lost the war in the eastern Syrian village of Baghouz, the group’s last sliver of territory, which was captured last month by the U.S.-backed Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces. The fall of Baghouz marked the militants’ territorial defeat and the end of their self-declared Islamic caliphate over parts of Syria and Iraq. Al-Baghdadi said that the battle for Baghouz demonstrated the “barbarism and brutality” of the West and the “courage, steadfastness and resilience of the nation of Islam.”

Beluga with Russian harness raises alarm Prosecutors sue feds COPENHAGEN, Dento stop courthouse mark (AP) — A beluga whale found with a tight immigration arrests harness that appeared to be Russian made has raised

the alarm of Norwegian officials and prompted speculation that the animal may have come from a Russian military facility. Joergen Ree Wiig of the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries says “Equipment St. Petersburg” is written on the harness strap, which features a mount for an action camera. He said Monday fishermen in Arctic Norway last week reported the tame white cetacean with a tight harness swimming around. On Friday, fisherman Joar Hesten, aided by the Ree Wiig, jumped into the frigid water to remove the harness. Ree Wiig said “people in Norway’s military have shown great interest” in the harness. Audun Rikardsen, a professor at the Department of Arctic and Marine Biology at the Arctic University of Norway in Tromsoe, northern Norway, believes “it is most likely that Russian Navy in Murmansk” is involved. Russia has major military facilities in and around Murmansk on the Kola Peninsula, in the far northwest of Russia. It wasn’t immediately

Rikardsen said he had checked with scholars in Russia and Norway and said they have not reported any program or experiments using beluga whales. “This is a tame animal that is used to get food served so that is why it has made contacts with the fishermen,” he said. “The ques-

Around the Nation No bail for border militia group leader on weapons charge ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A federal magistrate judge ordered the leader of an armed group that detained asylum-seeking families near the U.S.-Mexico border to remain jailed Monday as he awaits trial on a federal firearms charge. Larry Mitchell Hopkins pleaded not guilty to being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition during a detention hearing that was delayed earlier in morning because the federal courthouse in Albuquerque was abruptly evacuated. The U.S. Marshals Service said it could not provide information hours later on why the courthouse was cleared. It reopened shortly after noon. Hopkins, 69, clad in a gray jumpsuit and shackled at the waist, wrists and ankles, inched across the courtroom as an officer helped him down a step and escorted him out of the courtroom where he had been waiting to appear before the judge. A federal prosecutor argued after the courthouse reopened that Hopkins posed a flight risk and danger to the public if released. He cited Hopkins’ history of felony convictions dating back decades, use of aliases, and leadership role in the “heavily armed” United Constitutional Patriots group at the border. — Associated Press

tion is now whether it can survive by finding food by itself. We have seen cases where other whales that have been in Russian captivity doing fine.” Hesten told Norwegian broadcaster NRK that the whale began to rub itself again his boat when he first spotted it. Russia does not have a history of using whales for military purposes but the Soviet Union had a fullfledged training program for

dolphins. The Soviet Union used a base in Sevastopol on the Crimean peninsula during the Cold War to train the mammals for military purposes such as searching for mines or other objects and planting explosives. The facility in Crimea was closed following the collapse of the Soviet Union, though unnamed reports shortly after the Russian annexation of Crimea indicated that it had reopened.

BOSTON — Prosecutors in Massachusetts sued Monday to block federal authorities from making arrests at courthouses of people suspected of being in the country illegally, arguing the practice is making it harder for them to hold defendants accountable and get justice for victims. The top prosecutors for Suffolk County, which includes Boston, and Middlesex County say in the lawsuit joined by public defenders and others that some cases are grinding to a halt because witnesses, victims or defendants are too afraid to come to courts staked out by immigration agents. “When we cannot hold anyone accountable for their actions — let me be clear — that is not justice and not one person in this commonwealth is safer because of that practice,” Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan told reporters. The federal lawsuit, believed to be the first of its kind in the country, is the

latest fight between state and federal authorities over President Donald Trump’s stepped-up immigration efforts. It comes days after federal prosecutors in Massachusetts charged a state court judge and former court officer with obstruction of justice for allegedly helping a man sneak out a back door of the courthouse to evade a waiting immigration agent. Such courthouse arrests, which immigrant advocates say have increased across the country under Trump, have led to protests by lawyers representing immigrants and calls for an end to the policy from current and retired judges . Earlier this month, New York state courts officials barred immigration agents from making arrests inside courthouses without judicial warrants or orders. The Trump administration has said it’s only going to halls of justice for certain targets, like public safety threats, and that courthouses are among the safest places to arrest immigrants because visitors typically have to go through metal detectors.

Nuggets top Trail Blazers By The Associated Press

DENVER — The Denver Nuggets avoided both an emotional letdown and another Damian Lillard masterpiece . Forty-eight hours after dispatching the Spurs in their first Game 7 triumph in 41 years, the Nuggets rode a 37-point performance from Nikola Jokic to a 121-113 win over the well-rested Portland Trail Blazers in the opener of their second-round series Monday night. Lillard, who struck for 50 points, including a 37-footer at the buzzer to oust Oklahoma City in five games, scored two more points than Jokic. But he had a-half dozen turnovers, missed 8 of 12 3-point attempts and Gary Harris blocked his 3 from behind in the closing minute to keep the Trail Blazers from closing in. “We just made him uncomfortable,” said Jamal Murray, who added 23 points and eight assists for Denver to go with just one turnover. Despite logging 41½ minutes after playing 43½ two nights earlier, Jokic continued his playoff coming-out party by dominating once more. He made 11 of 18 shots and all 12 of his free throws to go with nine boards and a half dozen assists. “He’s a sponge,” Paul Millsap said. “He picks it up. He sees how people are playing him and guarding him and he makes the right play every time. That’s what’s great about him — he doesn’t force anything. Everything is going to be the right play. He’s going to make the right reads. He’s like a quarterback

out there. “I consider him like a Tom Brady — he’s always going to pick you apart and make the right reads. Commend him for doing that at this stage in his career. It’s unbelievable.” 76ers 94, Raptors 89 TORONTO — Jimmy Butler’s big game helped Philadelphia snap a lengthy losing streak in Toronto and, more importantly, brought the 76ers level in their Eastern Conference semifinal series. Butler had 30 points and 11 rebounds, James Ennis scored 13 points and the 76ers held on to beat the Raptors 94-89 on Monday night, knotting the series 1-1. It was Philadelphia’s first win in Toronto since Nov. 10, 2012, snapping a 14-game losing streak. “Everybody wants to paint the picture that we haven’t won here in however many years,” Butler said. “I’m just glad that we came out on top. We don’t care how many games we’ve lost, nothing like that.” Butler scored 12 in the final quarter to help the 76ers withstand a late Toronto rally. “He was just a tremendous rock,” coach Brett Brown said. “He willed us to a lot of different situations. He was a stud.” Butler scored just 10 points in Game 1, when he shot 4 for 12. “Jimmy Butler is a gamer,” Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. “He wasn’t going to be quiet this whole series.” Game 3 is Thursday night in Philadelphia.

SoHi soccer sweeps Nikiski By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

The Soldotna girls soccer team avoided a slow start Monday at Nikiski, while the Stars boys overcame one. The SoHi girls received five goals from Rhys Cannava to notch an 8-0 victory over the Bulldogs in Peninsula Conference play, while the Stars boys topped Nikiski 3-1 behind a pair of

strikes from Alex Montague. The Soldotna girls are now 7-2-2 overall and 2-0-2 in the league, while Nikiski falls to 1-2-0 and 1-2-2. On the boys side, the Stars are 7-4-0 and 3-10, while Nikiski is 1-4-0 and 3-4-0. The SoHi girls had defeated Nikiski 2-0 on April 16 and were coming off a weekend road trip to Southeast Alaska. Throw in the grass surface, and coach Jimmy Love was worried

about a slow start. “We don’t play that many games on grass anymore, but they came out and moved it around,” Love said. In the first 16 minutes of the game, the Stars took a 4-0 lead. Cannava had an early hat trick on assists from Katharine Bramante, Journey Miller, and Meijan Leaf and Ryann Cannava. Leaf also scored on an early penalty kick. See KICK, page A7

. . . Kick Continued from page A6

“I think the girls came out flat in the first half and they all knew it,” Nikiski coach Linda Zimmerman said. “I tried to get them to pump each other up and they did a lot better in the second half.” Before the end of the first half, Sierra Kuntz would score on assists from Haley Buckbee and Hannah Delker. Despite the 6-0 hole at the half, Zimmerman said it could have been worse. “Abby Bystedt did an amazing job,” she said of her goalie. “They scored a lot of goals, but she stopped a lot of shots, too.” As Nikiski picked up the pace, Love was not happy with the way his team responded. “We started getting away from looking for the open lane and looking for open people and instead we were just kicking it,” he said. “Toward the tail end of the second half, we got it together again.” In the final 10 minutes, Cannava tallied twice more, first on assists from Leaf and Jolie Widaman, then on an assist from Sierra Longfellow.

Peninsula Clarion | Tuesday, April 30, 2019 | A7 “It was good to get some minutes from the girls who don’t see as much playing time,” Love said. “That’s always nice when you have a busy week.” Zimmerman said America Jeffreys, Jordyn Stock and Emma Wik made some nice plays up front, but it was not enough to solve Soldotna keeper Margarida Mendoca, who posted her third shutout in four games. Soldotna boys 3, Nikiski 1 Goalie Hunter Woodward kept the Stars in the game long enough for Montague to play a major role in winning it. “The entire first half, he was the totality of our defense,” Soldotna coach David Holmes said of his goalie. In the second and eighth minutes, Justin Harris broke free in the box with chances in front of Woodward, but sprawling saves denied both chances. “We had it,” Nikiski coach Harrison Deveer said. “We won the possession game and kept the pressure on.” In the 26th minute, the Stars struck first when Austin Escott scored on a shot from Cameron Johnson. Just five minutes into the

second half, though, Michael Mysing beat Woodward from deep, sending a shot that bounced right in front of the goal and skidded underneath the arm of the goalie. Holmes said the Stars have three big scoring weapons in Kaleb Swank, Josh Heiber and Montague. With Swank and Heiber out due to injury, it fell on Montague to deliver and he did. In the 25th minute of the second half, Wyatt Nelson attacked in the box and Montague picked up the loose ball and scored. Just five minutes later, Montague drew a foul in the box and converted the penalty kick. Deveer said his team was tiring and that penalty kick really took the wind from their sails. Holmes said he was not happy with the way most of his team played, saying players were capable of stepping up in the wake of injuries and did not. The coach said the one exception was Maleda Denbrock. Deveer said his whole team did an amazing job, but he particularly liked Jace Kornstad at defensive midfield and Harris at forward. Harris was making his debut at forward due to

Blues prevail in tight matchup with Stars By STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

DALLAS — Pat Maroon paused briefly before thrusting both of his arms into the air, unsure if he had gotten the puck into the net to put the St. Louis Blues back in front late in a wild third period. Maroon’s flicked shot across the body and over the right shoulder of Ben Bishop was indeed a goal, a game-winner against the Dallas Stars with 1:38 left to give the Blues a 4-3 victory and a 2-1 series lead in the Western Conference semifinal matchup. “I think I just had more time and more time to use my hands. Usually I’m muffing it in the

pads,” said Maroon, who gathered the puck before his shot. “I got it up quick. I’ve been working on that in practice, is just taking it from the back of the net and trying to lift it instead of just putting it into the pads.” His second goal of the playoffs ended a span of just under 5 ½ minutes when both teams scored two goals , including Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo ending a 25-game drought since scoring his last goal Feb. 19. Jaden Schwartz and Tyler Bozak each had a goal and an assist for the Blues, who are still undefeated on the road this postseason after winning all three games at Winnipeg in the first-round series they won in

six games. All four of the road wins have been by one goal. “I can’t explain it. We’ve been a good road team all year,” Blues coach Craig Berube said. “Right from the get-go we were engaged right away in the game. We were aggressive. Sets the tone for us in the game.” Game 4 is Wednesday night in Dallas. Pietrangelo’s one-timer with 5:36 left, for a 3-2 lead, came right after the end of a Blues power play during which Andrew Cogliano scored a short-handed goal to tie the game 1:18 earlier. But Dallas quickly got even again at 3-3 on Tyler Seguin’s goal with 4:08 left that was his first point in this series, only to see the

Blues regain the lead again when the St. Louis-born Maroon got the puck past the Stars goalie who grew up in St. Louis, then was drafted by the Blues and made his NHL debut for them. “You see the amount of times we came back. It’s frustrating to lose a game like that,” center Jason Spezza said. “It wasn’t our best game, and we still had a chance to win.” This is Maroon’s first season with the Blues after he played his first seven NHL seasons with three other teams, most of it in Anaheim. “It’s his home. It’s great for him. We all love Patty,” Berube said. “It’s a big goal. To do it for your hometown team is pretty special.” The Stars were on the power

Odorizzi outduels Verlander By The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Jake Odorizzi pitched seven solid innings to outduel Justin Verlander, Ehire Adrianza homered off Houston’s ace and the Minnesota Twins beat the Astros 1-0 on Monday night. Odorizzi (3-2) gave up four hits while beating Houston for the second time in two starts. He walked one and struck out seven, and Minnesota won for the eighth time in 10 games. Blake Parker recorded his sixth save. Adrianza’s first homer of the season led off the third. He hit a towering, deep shot to the plaza in right field on a full count against Verlander (4-1), who allowed two hits, walked two and struck out seven over six innings. Coming off a dominant sweep of Baltimore, the Twins faced Houston for the second time in a week. They also saw Verlander in the previous series, when he gave up one run and needed just 98 pitches to get through eight innings. BREWERS 5, ROCKIES 1 MILWAUKEE — Struggling slugger Jesús Aguilar hit his first two homers of the season and Milwaukee beat Colorado with NL MVP Christian Yelich sidelined by lower back soreness. Zach Davies allowed an unearned run in five 1/3 innings, and Milwaukee opened a 10-game homestand with a breakout game from its beefy first baseman. Aguilar entered hitting .123 after accruing 35 homers and 108 RBIs last season. He had a three-run homer in the first and added a solo shot in the third, both off Kyle Freeland (2-4). Aguilar also singled in the eighth and had four RBIs. Davies (3-0) allowed just three hits and lowered his ERA to 1.38. He struck out two and walked three. Alex Claudio, Jay Jackson and Donnie Hart combined to retire 11 of the final 12 hitters.

RED SOX 9, ATHLETICS 4 BOSTON — Xander Bogaerts hit a tying two-run double that sailed over the head of center fielder Ramón Laureano, who made a bad read during a six-run third inning. Rookie Michael Chavis drove in three and Mookie Betts had three singles for Boston, which had lost two straight to AL East-leading Tampa Bay.

Ryan Brasier (1-0) got four outs and was credited with the victory after starter Eduardo Rodriguez failed to go five innings with Boston leading. Matt Barnes got the final two outs on two pitches for his second save after Oakland loaded the bases. Jurickson Profar had a two-run single for Oakland, which lost its fourth straight. Frankie Montas (4-2) gave up seven runs, one earned, in 4 1/3 innings.

CARDINALS 6, NATIONALS 3 WASHINGTON — Harrison Bader homered to spark a six-run fifth inning as surging St. Louis rallied past Patrick Corbin and Washington in the opener of a four-game series. Marcell Ozuna put the Cardinals ahead 4-3 with a two-run single. Jose Martinez had an RBI double, and Yadier Molina added a run-scoring single off Corbin (2-1), who took a 3-0 lead into the fifth. Michael Wacha (2-0) went five innings after being activated from the 10-day injured list earlier in the day. The right-hander allowed three runs and four hits while striking out five. Jordan Hicks pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to earn his ninth save.

BRAVES 3, PADRES 1 ATLANTA — Ozzie Albies homered and drove in two, Mike Soroka gave up one run in six innings and Atlanta beat San Diego. Soroka (2-1) allowed four hits, struck out a career-high eight and walked one. The 21-year-old right-hander lowered his ERA to 1.62. Rookie right-hander Jacob Webb recorded the final two outs for his first save, one day after his first win. Webb struck out pinch-hitter Wil Myers to end the game. Nick Margevicius (2-3) allowed three runs, one earned, on four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings.

RAYS 8, ROYALS 5 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Tommy Pham, Yandy Diaz and Ji-Man Choi each drove in two, sending hot-hitting Tampa Bay over Kansas City. Michael Perez and Kevin Kiermaier also drove in runs for the Rays (19-9), who have won five of six to build upon the best record in baseball. They also moved to 10-2 on the road. Yonny Chirinos went 5 2/3 innings in relief of effective opener Ryne Stanek, allowing two earned runs on two hits and a walk. Chirinos improved to 4-0 after going 0-3 last season.

The Rays did most of their damage against Brad Keller (2-3), who struggled in his return from a five-game suspension for his role in a fracas with the Chicago White Sox. The big right-hander allowed five runs on six hits and three walks over five innings.

GIANTS 3, DODGERS 2 SAN FRANCISCO — Evan Longoria hit a three-run double in the seventh inning to end Los Angeles’ four-game winning streak despite two more hits from Cody Bellinger. Joe Panik and Yangervis Solarte had two hits apiece for the Giants. San Francisco ended a four-game slide that included a series sweep by the New York Yankees last weekend. Panik singled off Ross Stripling (1-2) with one out and moved to third on Solarte’s double. After Stripling walked Brandon Belt to load the bases, Buster Posey struck out swinging. Longoria, who flied out as a pinch hitter in the sixth, then lashed a 2-1 pitch down the left-field line to clear the bases. Sam Dyson (1-0) retired five batters to earn the win. Will Smith pitched the ninth for his seventh save in seven chances.

REDS 5, METS 4 NEW YORK — Jesse Winker homered off All-Star closer Edwin Diaz with two outs in the ninth inning, and Cincinnati beat New York after wasting a four-run lead. Left-handed batters had been 0 for 15 this year against Diaz (0-1) before Winker drove a fastball over the right-center field fence for his career-high eighth home run, the most by a Reds player this season. Diaz was pitching for the third straight day for the first time this season. Raisel Iglesias (1-3) pitched two innings, striking out his last four batters.

WHITE SOX 5, ORIOLES 3 CHICAGO — Tim Anderson and Yonder Alonso each hit a two-run homer, sending Manny Bañuelos and Chicago over slumping Baltimore. Bañuelos (2-0) pitched five-hit ball into the sixth inning in his first start since replacing Ervin Santana in the rotation. The rookie left-hander has two wins in his last three games after he went 1-4 in 2015 with Atlanta — his last season in the majors before this year. Baltimore’s Chris Davis had two hits and two RBIs and Pedro Severino homered, but John Means (3-3) struggled after tossing five effective innings in a 4-3 win against Chicago last week.

play for the final 44 seconds of the game after a delay of game penalty against Colton Parayko, a penalty that was called after a lengthy discussion by the four on-ice officials. Dallas had a two-skater advantage with Bishop out of net and on the bench, but had three shots blocked and missed another before time ran out. Bishop stopped 30 shots, while Blues rookie goalie Jordan Binnington had 28 saves. “It was a great playoff game. It was back and forth, both teams were giving what they had,” Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. “I just thought the Blues did a better job possessing pucks in the offensive zone than we did.”

Today in History Today is Tuesday, April 30, the 120th day of 2019. There are 245 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 30, 1975, the Vietnam War ended as the South Vietnamese capital of Saigon fell to Communist forces. On this date: In 1789, George Washington took the oath of office in New York as the first president of the United States. In 1803, the United States purchased the Louisiana Territory from France for 60 million francs, the equivalent of about $15 million. In 1812, Louisiana became the 18th state of the Union. In 1900, engineer John Luther “Casey” Jones of the Illinois Central Railroad died in a train wreck near Vaughan, Mississippi, after staying at the controls in a successful effort to save the passengers. In 1912, Universal Studios had its beginnings as papers incorporating the Universal Film Manufacturing Co. were filed and recorded in New York State. In 1945, as Soviet troops approached his Berlin bunker, Adolf Hitler committed suicide along with his wife of one day, Eva Braun. In 1968, New York City police forcibly removed student demonstrators occupying five buildings at Columbia University. In 1970, President Richard M. Nixon announced the U.S. was sending troops into Cambodia, an action that sparked widespread protest. In 1973, President Richard Nixon announced the resignations of top aides H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, Attorney General Richard G. Kleindienst and White House counsel John Dean, who was actually fired. In 1983, blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters died in Westmont, Ill., at age 68. In 1993, top-ranked women’s tennis player Monica Seles was stabbed in the back during a match in Hamburg, Germany, by a man who described himself as a fan of second-ranked German player Steffi Graf. (The man, convicted of causing grievous bodily harm, was given a suspended sentence.) In 2004, Arabs expressed outrage at graphic photographs of naked Iraqi prisoners being humiliated by U.S. military police; President George W. Bush condemned the mistreatment of prisoners, saying “that’s not the way we do things in America.” Ten years ago: Riding a crest of populist anger, the House approved, 357-70, a bill to restrict credit card practices and eliminate sudden increases in interest rates and late fees. Chrysler filed for bankruptcy protection; the federal government pledged up to $8 billion in additional aid and to back warranties. The Iraq war formally ended for British forces as they handed control of the oil-rich Basra area to U.S. commanders. A man drove his car into a crowd of parade spectators in Amsterdam, killing seven people in an attempt to attack the Dutch royal family (the attacker, Karst Tates, died of his injuries). Five years ago: Iraq voted in its first nationwide election since U.S. troops withdrew in 2011. Police in Northern Ireland arrested Sinn Fein (shin fayn) party leader Gerry Adams over his alleged involvement in the Irish Republican Army’s 1972 abduction, killing and secret burial of a 38-year-old Belfast widow, Jean McConville (Adams was released without charge). A lawyer for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said Ford would take a leave of absence to seek help for substance abuse. One year ago: Central Americans who traveled in a caravan through Mexico to the U.S. border near San Diego began turning themselves in to U.S. authorities to seek asylum in a challenge to the Trump administration. New details emerged on a rift between White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and President Donald Trump, with one former administration official saying Kelly had privately called Trump “an idiot.” (Trump announced in December that Kelly would be leaving at the end of the year.) The Time’s Up campaign, devoted to helping women in the aftermath of sexual abuse, called for further investigation into allegations that singer R. Kelly had sexually abused women. (R. Kelly would be charged in February with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse; investigators alleged that he had abused three girls and a woman starting in the late 1990s.) Today’s Birthdays: Actress Cloris Leachman is 93. Singer Willie Nelson is 86. Actor Burt Young is 79. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden is 73. Movie director Allan Arkush is 71. Actor Perry King is 71.

Friend refuses to help plan dinner she’s not invited to Each time we go out, he’s always the talker, and when sometimes I want to say something, I clam up. I like him a lot, and I don’t like myself being this way. I am outgoing and talkative when I’m with my friends. I LIKE the way I am when I am with them Abigail Van Buren because I feel free and relaxed. He has started to complain about my quietness, and it’s upsetting. Each time he mentions it, I feel like I’m exposed. Should I continue this relationship? -- NOT QUIET IN THE MIDWEST DEAR NOT QUIET: Don’t look now, but your self-esteem appears to be sagging. Stop hiding in a self-imposed “closet” and show this person who you really are! Whether the relationship survives the disclosure I can’t guess, but I have a premonition that he will like you even better than he has for the last three months. DEAR ABBY: I have a limited income with which I support myself and my four children. When it comes to clothing, my kids’

Hints from Heloise


By Leigh Rubin

HHHH You might find it difficult to allow a partner or associate to run with the ball. Sometimes, deferring is the best way to go. Each of you has strengths and liabilities. You need to admit that the other party is far more innovative than you are. Tonight: Go along with a suggestion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You have the unique ability to read between the lines. Your effectiveness is based on timing as well. Allow others to reveal their thoughts. Weigh the pros and cons of a problem and its suggested solutions. Tonight: Say little -- for now. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH At the moment, your imagination seems fertile. How and where you direct this energy depends on you. Be smart; focus on an area where you’ll make a difference. Others will appreciate your suggestion. Tonight: Manifest a wish. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Pressure builds around you. You have the desire to please or work with a boss as well as a family member. You could have an issue with time or direction. Slow down; take a hard look at what you’re juggling. Know that you can handle it all. Tonight: Keep your focus. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH Reach out for someone with whom you enjoy sharing. You could easily debate the pros and cons of an idea. Your creativity could be spurred on by a brainstorming session. Speak your mind, yet also detach; see the impact on others. Tonight: Hang out with friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH One-on-one relating draws the attention of a partner. You both have excellent ideas. While you’re more idealistic, the other party is far more practical. Don’t be critical. Work together. Each of you has assets. Tonight: Chat and share over dinner. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH What you say has an impact. Express your feelings with diplomacy so that the other party can see what’s positive without feeling threatened. Defer to others; listen to various suggestions. The more input you get, the better your concept will be. Tonight: All smiles. BORN TODAY Actress Gal Gadot (1985), actress Cloris Leachman (1926), actress Kirsten Dunst (1982)


Prom pointers Dear Readers: May is PROM MONTH. The excitement of graduation, summertime fun, freedom and friendship all combine for a festive celebration, a night of memories and a rite of passage. But what should always come first? Safety! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( put out the following hints: In the rush to get glamorous, there can be dangers. Tanning, crash diets, too-tight gowns, sky-high shoes and up-to-the-minute skin and hair treatments can all end badly. A natural, fresh, healthy, conservative and pretty look is best. Tell your teen: Have a plan. Make sure someone is available if an emergency arises. One obvious no-no: using drugs and alcohol. Never ride in a car with someone who is drunk or high; going as a group and pitching in for a limousine is a safe option. After-prom parties can be fun, but ensure you and your teen know exactly where the after-party is, who is hosting it and what time the party ends. The school usually hosts an event; call to get details. This is an exciting time of the year. Talking to your teen about safety will certainly elicit an eye-roll or two, but carry on. -- Heloise STRIPES FOR SAFETY Dear Heloise: I’d like to remind your readers: Parking in the striped area next to an accessible (also called handicapped) parking space is not allowed. The striped area allows room for a van to lay out a ramp for a wheelchair to lift folks up and down. You can be subject to a big fine, so please leave that space for people who need it. -- Randy W. in Indiana

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, April 30, 2019: This year, you’ll express unusual creativity. You often surprise others with your unique ideas and decisions. Try to eye situations with detachment. If single, you make friends easily, but people often misread your smile and positive attitude. You take your time trusting and getting to know a person. If you’re attached, you and your partner look to travel less but have more togetherness. PISCES helps you zero in on what you want. 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 Your fiery temperament comes out early in the day. Woe to anyone who crosses your path. As a result, a discussion and adjustment could ensue. Opportunities come from left field. Take a hard look at one that appears to be excellent. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH A meeting or key decision could dominate your thoughts and choices. You could discover that someone else might be pressuring you to accomplish a project. As a result, your finances could be affected. Use good sense. Tonight: Think, then slow down and relax with friends. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Take a stand. Slow down and observe others’ reactions. You might not be pleased by what’s being shared by one person, but in general, most comments are constructive. Curb a tendency to make sarcastic comments. Tonight: As you like it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your sense of rhythm and your thoughts could be off. Before you make decisions that could affect your work, do more thinking. If you become too impulsive, you might not be pleased by the end results. Tonight: Share ideas with a trusted friend. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Deal directly with a partner. Although there might be more Sturm und Drang, in the long run, you need to know what’s going on. You might feel pushed by a friend who has strong opinions. You might feel sorry that you shared anything about the issue with this person. Tonight: Dinner for two. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

needs obviously come first, and most of my money goes to buying their clothes. The majority of mine come from clothing banks. My problem is, when someone compliments me on an outfit I’m wearing and asks where I got it, I don’t know what to say. I’m embarrassed to say it’s from a clothing bank, but at the same time I don’t like lying. Any suggestions? -- SMALLTOWN POOR DEAR SMALLTOWN POOR: I do have one. When you are complimented on an item of clothing, say thank you. And if the person asks where you bought it, say it was given to you. It’s the truth. It was given to you at the clothing bank.

DEAR ABBY: My best friend of 40 years has asked me to fly to her son’s wedding in a few months, arrive early to help with everything and not be included in the rehearsal dinner. I explained that I’m not going to spend more than $1,000 to fly out early, stay in a hotel, rent a car and not attend the dinner I’ve helped set up, decorate, etc. She said she’s not inviting outof-town guests to the rehearsal dinner, and it’s family only. She then uninvited me to the wedding and hung up on me! We haven’t spoken since. Am I crazy or was she, for expecting me to go work my behind off and leave before the guests arrive? -- NO ONE’S SLAVE DEAR NO ONE’S: What happened proves the truth of the adage that weddings and funerals can bring out the worst in people. Your friend’s request was insensitive and rude, and she should be ashamed of herself. You would have been more than “an outof-town guest,” and you should have been thanked for your efforts AT THE DINNER. DEAR ABBY: I’ve dated a guy for three months now, and I still can’t be completely open with him. I am afraid the real me isn’t that likable, so I have become less talkative in this relationship.

Rosenstein’s departure had been expected following the confirmation of William Barr as attorney general. Barr praised Rosenstein on Monday for having “navigated many challenging situations with strength, grace, and good humor.” The White House nominated a replacement for the No. 2 slot, Deputy Transportation Secretary Jeffrey Rosen, weeks ago. In his resignation letter, Rosenstein said the median tenure for the position is 16 months; Rosenstein will

fire happened so quickly. We tried our best to extinguish it, but it was so intense.” Troopers did not release the name of the injured guard, saying only that that individual was flown out of state and is listed in serious condition. A second guard was also transported for treatment, and troopers said that person ultimately did need further care. That guard reported the prisoner started the blaze. Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said the cause is under investigation. Peters said the names of the guards are not being released by troopers because they are witnesses

and they are not employed by the state. She said the jail building is owned by the village and referred questions to officials there. Napakiak Mayor Joann Slats declined to comment about the case. “We cannot give out information at this time,” she said. Peters said the jail was not equipped with a sprinkler system and it was unknown if the building was equipped with smoke detectors. There were no reports of an alarm going off, she said. Peters also said the victims had been taken into custody by tribal police, but she didn’t know for what. KYUK reported the two were in custody for driving a four-wheeler

while intoxicated on Saturday afternoon. Two state troopers from Bethel, two fire marshals from Anchorage and an investigator with the Alaska Bureau of Investigation travelled to Napakiak to investigate Sunday. A 2018 survey of public safety facilities by the Association of Village Council Presidents found problems with windows, door locks and exterior stairs at Napakiak’s public safety building. Peters said the public safety building is not the same location as the jail and fire. Napakiak is a Yup’ik community of about 380 people southwest of Bethel.

. . . AG She said Clarkson suffered a heart attack and went into cardiac arrest. The cardiac arrest occurred shortly after he walked off the plane with paramedics, she said. Mills said Clarkson underwent emergency surgery to fix an artery in his heart. She said Clarkson turned 60 on Saturday. Clarkson was scheduled to be released from the hospital Monday and return to Alaska on Wednesday, she said. “The recovery is just going really well, so that’s just a good sign for us,” Mills said. “We’re going to be happy to have him back at the helm once he recov-

ers.” Clarkson, in a statement, said he had “quite the scare” but is on his way to a full recovery. He said he might show up at work this week, depending on how he is doing. Mills said the department has a hierarchy to handle matters when the attorney general is unavailable. Gov. Mike Dunleavy, a Republican, appointed Clarkson in December. Clarkson was confirmed to the post earlier this month by the Alaska Legislature. Dunleavy said he and his wife are glad to hear that Clarkson is doing well. “We hope that all Alaskans will join us in keeping him and his family in their prayers this week as he continues to recover,” Dunleavy said in a statement.

Saturday’s fire, Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources issued a temporary suspension on Sunday of all burn permits on the peninsula. Kent attributed this suspension to three factors: current weather conditions, the high volume of dry fuels in the area and recent fire activity that has been human-caused. Kent said that since the official start of fire season on April 1, the Division of Forestry has responded to 12 fire events in the Kenai/Kodiak region — including one on Kodiak Island and one near the Soldotna Airport — and all 12 have been linked to human activity. Kent added that about 98% of all the fires that occur on the penin-

sula are caused by people, according to data from the Division of Forestry. In Alaska, anyone who starts a fire is financially responsible for suppression costs incurred by emergency responders as well as any damage to property or other people. While dead or fallen spruce trees often make for quick kindling, Kent said that the main carrier of fire on the peninsula is grass, particularly at this time of the year. Last year’s grass died while buried under the snow all winter, and the long hours of sunlight dry it out quickly after it is uncovered. With Alaska’s fire season already in full swing,

Kent had a few reminders for anyone looking to burn, even if it’s just a simple campfire. Fire season in Alaska runs from April 1 to Aug. 31. Burn permits are required for all open burning with exceptions for small campfires, according to the Alaska Department of Natural Resources. Burn permits include comprehensive information on the best safety practices, the tools and supplies that should be on hand when burning and the different requirements for burn barrels versus pile burns. “If you follow what’s on your burn permit to the letter, then you shouldn’t have any problems,” Kent said. Kent noted that anyone

with a burn permit is required to call the Division of Forestry’s burn permit hotline before burning to get approval for that day and to hear any updates on weather conditions or permit suspensions. Burn permits are not required for campfires and warming fires that are less than 3 square feet in size. The burn permit hotline is 907-260-4269. Kent said that wind conditions are important to keep in mind when doing any kind of burning. If the wind is blowing at more than 10 mph, Kent recommended not burning and extinguishing any fires already started. Kent also noted that Saturday’s fire occurred with wind speeds as low as 3

to 5 mph — showing that it doesn’t take much for a fire to escape and spread. F o r e s t r y. a l a s k a . g o v, and AKfireinfo. com are online resources that can provide more information about proper burning practices, and provides minute-by-minute updates on fires that occur in the state. Kent said that the Division of Forestry’s Facebook page also posts regular updates about firefighting efforts in Alaska. Applications for burn permits are available at, which also provides up-to-date information on any permit suspensions or burn bans, including the one currently in effect.

have served about two years by the time he leaves. Rosenstein had intended to leave around mid-March but stayed on for the completion of Mueller’s investigation. He was part of a small group of department officials who reviewed the report and helped shape its public release after Mueller submitted the document last month. Integral to the start of the probe, Rosenstein was also present for the very end. After Mueller didn’t reach a conclusion on whether Trump had obstructed the investigation, Barr and the deputy stepped in and determined the evidence wasn’t enough to support such an allegation. The deputy attorney general position is a hugely significant job, responsible for overseeing the Justice Department’s daily operations and the work of United States attorneys across the country. But it’s largely an anonymous, behind-thescenes position. Rosenstein even joked about telling one of his daughters when he

took the job not to expect to see his picture in the newspapers. That wasn’t the case, though, for Rosenstein, who was thrust into Justice Department drama even before his arrival on the job because of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ earlier recusal from the Russia probe. The tumult continued in May 2017 when his memo lambasting Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation laid the groundwork for the FBI chief’s firing, though Rosenstein privately made clear that he was unhappy that the White House publicly characterized the termination as his idea instead of Trump’s, according to Mueller’s report. Trump later said he would have fired Comey even without the Justice Department’s recommendation and that he was thinking of “this Russia thing” at the time. Rosenstein appointed Mueller one week later, supervised his work and routinely defended the investi-

gation against attacks from congressional Republicans and from Trump, who often blasted the probe as a “witch hunt.” Over the next two years, with Sessions recused from the Russia investigation because of his work on the Trump campaign, Rosenstein set the boundaries of Mueller’s investigation, approved investigative steps and, in place of the rarely seen special counsel, twice announced criminal indictments from the Justice Department podium against Russians accused of election interference. The investigation overshadowed the rest of Rosenstein’s work even as he talked up the president’s agenda, including announcements on combating violent crime and opioid addiction. “The Department of Justice made rapid progress in achieving the Administration’s law enforcement priorities — reducing violent crime, curtailing opioid abuse, protecting consum-

ers, improving immigration enforcement, and building confidence in the police — while preserving national security and strengthening federal efforts in other areas,” Rosenstein wrote in his resignation letter. Though Rosenstein’s exit was orderly, and he endured in the job well beyond Sessions, his relationship with the president waffled over time and his job often appeared in the balance. That was especially true last September after The New York Times reported that he had discussed secretly recording Trump and invoking a constitutional amendment to remove him from office. The Justice Department issued statements disputing the reporting, but former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — who was in the room — has said he got the sense that Rosenstein was “counting votes” about which Cabinet members he could enlist in the effort to oust Trump. Rosenstein arrived at the

White House days after the news reports expecting to be fired, but he was instead allowed to stay on after private conversations with Trump’s then-chief of staff, John Kelly, and the president himself. The president also lashed out in April 2018 after the FBI raided the office of his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and months later retweeted the image that showed Rosenstein, Comey and other investigators behind bars. In his resignation letter, Rosenstein made a perhaps oblique reference to those chaotic moments and the media attention surrounding them. “We enforce the law without fear or favor because credible evidence is not partisan, and truth is not determined by opinion polls,” Rosenstein wrote. “We ignore fleeting distractions and focus on the things that matter, because a republic that endures is not governed by the news cycle.”

Endangered wolf pups born in captivity join dens in the wild packs in Arizona and New Mexico. Center officials say the placement increases the wild population and adds needed genetic diversity. “It is literally vital for this particular population,” Regina Mossotti, director of animal care and conservation at the Endangered Wolf Center, said Thursday. “When you’re talking about 150 animals left in the wild, genetics plays a crucial part in whether that recovery effort is successful or not.” Mexican wolves once

ST. LOUIS — Missouri wildlife officials have placed six Mexican wolf pups born in captivity near St. Louis with two packs in the wild, in a new effort to repopulate the critically endangered species. Three members of the Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka, Missouri, flew with the 11-day-old pups to Phoenix on April 18. From there, the pups were taken to

an estimated 131 of those in Arizona and New Mexico and the rest in Mexico. The six pups — three male and three female — were among nine born at the centre on April 7 to parents Mack and Vera. Meanwhile, monitoring showed that several wild packs were having births at around the same time. That was important because for wild wolf parents to accept pups born from outside the litter, the pups must be born at about

the same time and must be placed before they are 14 days old, Mossotti said. Getting the captive-born pups to their new homes was no easy task. After a commercial flight to Phoenix, Arizona Game and Fish provided a small plane that took Mossotti and colleagues to a mountainous area at the border of Arizona and New Mexico. From there, the women hiked, carrying the potatosized pups in pet carrier backpacks, to sites where

numbered in the hundreds of thousands in the Southwest. Hunting and habitat loss led to near-extinction, and the last seven remaining Mexican wolves were captured and taken to the Endangered Wolf Center in the 1970s in an effort to save the species. The population slowly began to rebound. The first Mexican wolves were released back into the wild in 1998. The centre said the population in the wild has grown to around 150, with

Meet Rollo Nice boy who seems to do well with most people. He is a little hand shy and we aren’t sure why. He has been somewhat neglected it appears and needs someone to love and spoil him. We’ve introduced him to a couple families with kids around 6-12 years old and he did really good with them so he may be fine in a home with well behaved children. He definitely needs a home with a soft hand.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials had located the dens. One female pup was left with a pack in Arizona, which already had a sevenpup litter. The other five captivity-born pups were taken to a pack in New Mexico. GPS collars attached to some of the wolves indicates that the wild mothers have taken to the new pups, Mossotti said, which didn’t surprise her given the gentle, nurturing nature of the species.

Meet August Very nice boy but he does love to bark if no one is paying attention to him. He has a thick coat and will need someone to keep him groomed. He seems to like most of the dogs here at the shelter.
