In the news Young humpback whale dies after 2 strandings ANCHORAGE — A young humpback whale that twice beached in Alaska was found dead south of Anchorage. The whale on Sunday and Monday twice become stranded along Turnagain Arm, KTUUTV reported. The second time, the whale was just south of Girdwood. It freed itself Monday night. On Tuesday, however, the whale was again beached a few miles south of its previous stranding, said Verena Gill of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Cook Inlet beluga whale recovery coordinator, where wildlife responders discovered it had died. The whale may have followed a pod of belugas and likely was unfamiliar with the area, Gill said. Observers had seen a larger whale in the area that could have been its mother, Gill said. The whale’s death changed plans from a rescue to a necropsy. NOAA Fisheries spokeswoman Julie Speegle said a necropsy would begin Tuesday afternoon. Teams planned to work until the tide came in at 5 p.m. Turnagain Arm is known for having some of the highest tides in the world and mud on the tidal flats is extremely dangerous. Silt particles are laid down in a loosely oriented pattern by waters that carry them into the inlet, according to the Alaska Public Information Centers. When disturbed by feet, the particles resettle into a more tightly packed arrangement, making extraction much more difficult with the potential of trapping people who venture onto them. Signs along the arm warn people to stay off the mud to avoid being trapped and drowned by the incoming tide. — Associated Press

Senate committee advances PFD formula rewrite By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU — The size of the check residents receive from Alaska’s oil wealth fund would be smaller next year under a Senate pro-

posal than if an existing dividend calculation were followed. That existing formula has been ignored the last three years amid an ongoing budget deficit. Gov. Mike Dunleavy

has said the law should be followed, and spokesman Matt Shuckerow said Tuesday that Dunleavy will not accept changes to the dividend formula without a vote of the people. Some lawmakers say the current

formula is unsustainable. Last year, lawmakers began using Alaska Permanent Fund earnings — the pot of money used to pay dividends — to help cover government expenses, creating tension.

Lawmakers also sought to limit withdrawals from fund earnings, passing a law that calls for a withdrawal amount of $2.9 billion for government and dividends for the upcomSee PFD, page A15

Where art and earth intersect ‘Of Stone’ highlights humanity’s impact on natural world By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Two Anchorage artists will be showcasing their unique approaches to printmaking and ceramics this month at the Kenai Fine Art Center. The exhibit, “Of

Stone,” will feature intaglio and lithography prints from University of Alaska artist-in-residence Jonathan Green, as well as large ceramic animal sculptures from UAA ceramics instructor Alanna DeRocchi. “Of Stone” will be on

display at the Kenai Fine Art Center starting tomorrow and will remain until the end of May, with an opening reception free to the public taking place tomorrow evening from 5 to 7 p.m. During the reception, Green and DeRocchi will

discuss the process for creating their art and their motivation behind the pieces on display. Green works primarily in printmaking and has done so since he first began studying art in college See STONE, page A16

Kenai City Council will decide whether or not to allow onsite marijuana consumption in retail stores at their council meeting Wednesday night. Alaska recently became the first state to legalize onsite cannabis consumption at retail stores, as long as they have a separate endorsement license. The new legislation took effect April 11, and now Kenai is looking to adjust its regulations accordingly. “While there is an opportunity for the city to prohibit onsite consumption, this ordinance permits the activity through a conditional use permit process,” according to a memo attached to the ordinance. “In order to accomplish this, the city’s zoning code and land use table are proposed to be amended to include a definition of an onsite consumption endorsement, clarify that a conditional use permit separate from a conditional use permit for the retail facility is required, and provide where the business activity is alSee POT, page A2

State regulators to consider changes to onsite pot use By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU — Alaska’s first-in-the-nation statewide rules for allowing onsite consumption of marijuana at authorized

stores could be tweaked to ease requirements for shops that want to offer places to consume edibles but not permit smoking. The Marijuana Control Board plans to consider the issue during its meet-

ing starting Wednesday in Anchorage. The fivemember board will be short-handed, with one member out of state and one seat vacant. The board would need to get public comment on

proposed changes to the rules. The board also could have staff rework the proposed changes or do nothing. Board chairman Mark Springer said all three of the members expected to attend would have to agree

to pass something, though he noted that if a motion were to fail, an issue could be revived later. New rules specify conditions stores must meet to be authorized for onsite See USE, page A2

Man opens fire on North Carolina campus, leaves 2 dead, 4 injured

13 weekend wildfires signal kickoff to Alaska fire season


By DAN JOLING Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A man armed with a pistol opened fire on students in a classroom building at a North Carolina university during the last day of classes Tuesday, killing two people and wounding four others, police said. Officers who had gathered ahead of a campus concert raced over and disarmed the suspect in the room where the shooting happened. The shooting prompted a lockdown at the UniSee SHOOT, page A16

ANCHORAGE — A spark from a snowmobile ignited dry grass south of a Bering Sea village, lighting up tundra and signaling that Alaska’s wildfire season is in full swing. The freak fire Sunday covered 35 acres south of Unalakleet before smokejumpers arrived. It grew to 196 acres before they contained it. The fire near the Yupik village 148 miles southeast of Nome was one of 13 weekend conflagrations that prompted the Alaska Division of Forestry to

warn people not to be casual with outdoor fires. “At this time of year, with all this dead, dry grass and brush, this is really some of the driest parts of the year,” spokesman Tim Mowry said from his office in Fairbanks. “You don’t have high temperatures but there are no green plants putting moisture into the atmosphere.” Relative humidity this week is just 10% to 20%, he said. “Anytime you get below 20%, that’s pretty dry,” he said. Alaska generally has two wildfire seasons. See FIRE, page A15

House Republicans announce support for K-12 funding By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

House Republicans are asking the Senate and House Majority to fully fund the K-12 base student allocation and pupil transportation, according to a

press release sent Tuesday from the Alaska House Republicans. “Despite the need for reductions elsewhere, our caucus commits to providing for K-12 education during these uncertain fiscal times,” House Minor-

ity Leader Lance Pruitt, R-Anchorage, said in the release. “This is a commitment to support the full base amount through this entire budget process.” Gov. Mike Dunleavy put forward steep cuts in education funding in his

Feb. 13 budget proposal, reducing the base student allocation funding formula, resulting in a 25% cut to schools. “Education is and will always be one of my top priorities,” Rep. Sara Rasmussen, R-Anchorage,

said in the press release. “Sending a clear message now will encourage certainty moving forward in this year’s budget cycle.” On April 10, the House voted down an amendment to the operating budget See K-12, page A3

The proposed changes would allow stores not in freestanding buildings to have onsite consumption of edibles only. Ventilation systems would be required

store commercial use permit for the same location, according to the proposed ordinance. State regulations will prohibit drunk and intoxicated people from entering or remaining onsite and are required to have smokefree areas for employees to monitor the consumption area, a ventilation system that eliminates odor, security measures and procedures for handling unconsumed product.

“Outdoor consumption areas are contemplated in the regulations with additional requirements that the activity must be compatible with surrounding uses, there must be sight obscuring borders, and there is allowance for objection by property owners within 250 feet and local government objection,” according to a memo attached to the proposed ordinance. The state requires an

application for an onsite endorsement with a fee of $1,000, renewal fees of $600 and license fees of $2,000. With these endorsements, a retail marijuana store can sell products to customers in an area separated from the rest of the store, referred to as a consumption area. For consumption, only 1 gram of marijuana can be sold to a person per day, or edible products containing 10 milligrams or less of THC.

for onsite use areas allowing smoking. Consumption areas still would need to be separated from the rest of the stores. Cary Carrigan, executive director of the Alaska Marijuana Industry Association, said it seems a “foregone conclusion” that the state will continue moving forward with a plan for onsite consumption. “It’s just kind of more a dynamic of how it takes shape finally,” he said. “I think a lot of people still

have a lot of different ideas.” James Barrett, a coowner of Rainforest Farms in Juneau, said his business is interested in allowing for onsite use but noted there are hurdles, including finding a model that works. The business had an idea for onsite consumption that involved marijuana concentrates, but current state rules do not allow for that. In Juneau, local rules prohibit all forms of marijuana consumption in pub-

lic, including in marijuana retail stores, according to the city attorney. Barrett said a tourist would probably want to come in and smoke a joint. Juneau gets an influx of cruise ship passengers in the summer. While the rules allowing for onsite use took effect April 11, interested businesses still must apply, meet requirements and receive approval from the board. The board has not yet considered any onsite use applications.

Michelle LeeAnne Waldrip July 22, 1969 - April 20, 2019

Longtime Soldotna resident Michelle LeeAnne Waldrip, 49, passed away Saturday, Apr. 20, 2019 at home surrounded by her family after battling breast cancer. A private family gathering will take place in her honor. Michelle was born July 22, 1969 in Redlands, Calif. She graduated from high school and became a Master Dog and Cat Groomer. She moved to Soldotna in 1985, and owned and operated Michelle’s DogCat Grooming for over 25 years. Michelle enjoyed picking mushrooms, gardening, hunting, fishing and clam digging. Her family wrote, “In a universe filled with roses, she was every flower imaginable. Showing us that beauty comes in many forms of stalks, vines and petals. Not every plant grows at the same rate, and all deserve supporting unconditional love. She had the most warmest smile, kind eyes, cheerful and joyous personality. If you knew her, I’m sure you just remembered her sweet self. Though she is not with us on earth, we know she is still showering us with love, watching each of us grow daily. We love and miss you mom. Forever our angel from above. “ Michelle was preceded in death by her grandmother, Pat Hannah, grandfather, Edgar Hannah and her father-in-law, George Waldrip. She is survived by her husband, Kevin Waldrip of Soldotna; son, Briar Waldrip of Sterling; daughters and son-in-law, Shira and Daniel Benson, of Sterling, and Farra Waldrip of Soldotna; grandsons, Liam and Rhett Benson, both of Sterling; her mother, Vicki Nelson of Soldotna; brother, Gabe Maroda of Soldotna; niece, Hannah Maroda; nephew, Jesse Maroda, both of Soldotna; mother-in-law, Louetta Waldrip of Soldotna; brothers-in-law and sister-inlaw, Greg Waldrip of Eugene, Ore., and Garold and Colleen Waldrip of Sterling and best friend Kristen May of Soldotna.

that would have reversed forward funding of K-12 schools approved during last year’s legislative session. Forward funding is approved for the year ahead, in an effort to allow school districts the ability to plan for future budgets. The amendment was introduced by Rep. Ben Carpenter, R-Nikiski, who believed forward funding was unconstitutional. Dunleavy’s administration has also doubted whether or not appropriations made in a previous Legislature were constitutional. In an April 9

memo from Attorney General Kevin Clarkson, he said: “committing a future Legislature and governor to spend future revenues on education is unconstitutional.” “Why chance a special session on the potential for education to not be funded?” Rep. Josh Revak, R-Anchorage, asked in the press release. “What do we have to lose just ensuring education is in the operating budget? Political disagreements should not get in the way of providing the best for our kids.” The release said House Republicans stand ready to support including the full amount necessary in this year’s operating budget.

Shareholders spoke of their desire for year-round income and opportunities beyond seasonal commercial fishing. Everyone was extended the opportunity to present concerns. None expressed opposition or negativity. Above all, shareholders let everyone know that APC was doing the right thing by ensuring the corporation’s place at the table with Pebble.

What Others Say

Execution reminder of slavery’s lasting legacy

two weeks after a white man was arrested for setting fire to three black churches in Louisiana. The proximity of those events makes one wonder if race relations have changed since Byrd was lynched. Clearly there have been improvements in the past 21 years, but the FBI says hate crimes in America, most of them motivated by race or ethnicity, have increased. Few compare to what happened to Byrd. While walking home late at night, he accepted a ride from three white guys in a pickup. The driver was Shawn Berry. The other two, King and Lawrence Russell Brewer, had been members of a skinhead prison gang called the Confederate Knights of America. They attacked Byrd, beat him into submission, wrapped one end of a chain around his ankles, the other end to the truck’s ball, and dragged him for three miles. Part of Byrd’s body was found near a cemetery; the rest a mile and a half up the road. It wasn’t hard for police to find Byrd’s assailants. They clumsily left evidence where it was easily found. All three men were convicted of capital murder. Brewer was executed in 2011. Berry, who cooperated with authorities, was sentenced to life in prison and will be eligible for parole in 2038. King’s fate was set after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a lastminute appeal Wednesday evening. King was a walking, talking advertisement for racism. His many body tattoos included a black man hanging from a tree, a robed Ku Klux Klansman, a swastika, and the words “Aryan Pride.” Prosecutors said King was as an “exalted cyclops” of the Confederate Knights of America and recruited white troops for an imagined race war. Did King’s execution have a purpose other than vengeance? Executions usually don’t. Research has shown them to also be poor deterrents to future crimes. Capital punishment has more to do with retribution than justice. But King’s execution could be different. That’s if his story of unbridled racism could be used to bury the misguided notion that memorials and traditions honoring the Confederate States of America should be treated with reverence. Klan and skinhead groups use emblems that link them to the Confederacy for a specific reason: Like them, the rebel states were united by racism. Failing to preserve slavery, the former Confederate states continued to treat black people as inferior to whites by enacting segregation laws that stayed on the books into the 1960s. Many African-Americans and others view commemorations of the Confederacy as endorsements of the historical subjugation of black people. That doesn’t mean other folks can’t be proud of their ancestors. They were fighting for a racist cause, but most were soldiers, not murderers like King and two others who killed Byrd. That pride, however, shouldn’t be endorsed by state governments whose citizens also include people who aren’t descendants of Confederate soldiers and sympathizers.

A laska V oices B rad A ngasan may likely continue to believe what certain environmental groups frequently publicize — worst case scenarios resulting from antiquated development standards of the past. At APC, our leadership doesn’t have the luxury of making emotional decisions. Every aspect must be considered before the corporation forms a position on Pebble. As a for-profit Alaska Native corporation, we base our business on strategy, not public opinion polls. At present, we’re immersed in opinionated, emotional hype. People have the right to make their own personal determinations, regardless of disagreement, and we are the first to defend this right. This ideology is the basis of APC’s position on the Pebble Project. It empowers us to determine for ourselves whether Pebble can be developed safely. The thought of losing the power to exercise self-determination is an insult and contradiction to the forefathers who devoted their lifetimes fighting for Alaska Native rights. The bitter irony is that some of those working to prevent our self-determination happen to be our own Alaska Native friends, neighbors or even family.

APC honors and respects the many shareholders and year-round residents who continue to participate in the Bristol Bay fishery. There is no denying the value of fish to people who depend on this resource as a means to earn a living. There is also no denying the fact the Bristol Bay commercial and sports fishery is a massive economic contributor to those who live away from the region and outside of Alaska. Its departure creates an economic imbalance between those places where resources are taken and the places where nonresidents go to spend their seasonal bounty of wealth. There are many unknowns about Pebble. What we know for certain is that we are in a race against the clock to prevent abandonment of some of our region’s most historic villages. When communities die, cultures die. People need jobs and communities need healthy sustainable economies to survive. These are desperate times for many people. As unpopular as it is, the leadership at APC is mandated to protect and preserve the interest of those places we hold sacred to our foundation’s creation, the places we come from and continue to live. Brad Angasan is senior vice president of Alaska Peninsula Corporation. He is a lifelong Bristol Bay commercial fisherman, an APC and Bristol Bay Native Corporation shareholder, and has lived in South Naknek, Levelock, Dillingham and Anchorage.

News and Politics

Dems vow to enforce subpoenas as Trump resistance grows By LISA MASCARO and MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Democrats are steeling for an extraordinary fight with President Donald Trump as the White House stonewalls congressional oversight demands in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. In the latest case, Trump, his family and the Trump Organization have filed a lawsuit against Deutsche Bank and Capital One attempting to thwart congressional subpoenas into his financial and business dealings, asserting the requests are out of bounds. That comes as Trump’s treasury secretary is declining to produce the president’s tax returns, Attorney General William Barr is threatening to back out of his agreement to appear this week before the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee, and former White House counsel Don McGahn and other officials are being encouraged not to testify before Congress. “He’s prepared to fight us tooth and nail. And we’re prepared to fight him back,” said Rep. Maxine Waters, DCalif., the chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee. “He obviously has something to hide.” The standoff pits the legislative and executive branches against each other in a constitutional showdown not seen since the Watergate era. Neither side is expected to back down. The debate over witnesses and documents could escalate with legal battles rippling into the 2020 election. From Trump’s perspective, since Mueller finished his report on Russian interference into the election, there’s no further need to investigate. It’s a view largely backed by the president’s party — Houston Chronicle, April 24 in Congress. But Democrats say it’s their

duty to conduct oversight even as they are also confronting the limits of their own enforcement powers. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said the stonewalling “certainly builds the case that the administration and the president is engaged in wholesale obstruction of Congress, completely extraconstitutional, trying to make the presidency not responsive to Congress, trying to make the presidency into a monarchy.” Nadler said the White House’s position is “absolutely unacceptable.” Impeachment proceedings, though, which would run through Nadler’s committee, remain off the table for now, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi is urging the House chairmen to push forward with their oversight agendas. Republicans have largely stood by Trump and shown little interest in the oversight agenda many view as little more than a partisan attack on the president. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, in his first remarks in Washington since the special counsel’s report was released almost two weeks ago, said he “didn’t hear a single word about the Mueller report” from constituents at home in Kentucky. McConnell brushed off concerns that Trump’s decision to ignore congressional subpoenas could set a precedent for executive overreach by this White House or future ones. “Every administration since I’ve been around has been in disputes with Congress over power,” McConnell told reporters. “We’ll see how it all sorts out.” Congress has a range of tools available to try to force compliance from the White House, either through civil lawsuits compelling administration officials to testify or produce documents, or by holding others in contempt of Congress,

as it seeks information for investigations stemming beyond the special counsel’s probe. Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation left unanswered a key question of whether the president obstructed justice. While the report did not find that Trump conspired with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, it recounted 10 instances where Trump tried to intervene in the investigation. Barr is set to testify Wednesday in the Senate, but his appearance Thursday in the House is uncertain. House Democrats have also asked Mueller to testify by May 23, but Republicans, who have the majority in the Senate, have not made a similar request. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said he was unsure if Mueller should testify. While Congress has a “legitimate and important” oversight role, he said, “it’s also hard to see the Democrats are exercising that function in good faith when their only objective is trying to destroy the president.” For Democrats, the ability to conduct oversight of the White House is a core responsibility that extends beyond investigating the president into agency actions that can touch the lives of Americans. “If the executive branch can deny the legislative branch the ability to bring witnesses to testify under oath and for the production of documents, the executive branch will have essentially eliminated the oversight function of Congress,” said Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I. Yet while Democrats have vowed to go to court, those proceedings could last years, possibly past Trump’s tenure. And if they chose to hold officials in criminal contempt, which would take a vote of the full House, it would be referred to Justice Department officials unlikely to side with the Democrats.

Trump threatens Cuba as US supports Venezuela uprising

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration quickly declared enthusiastic support Tuesday for the Venezuelan opposition effort to spark a military uprising against embattled

President Nicolas Maduro, hoping for decisive action in the political crisis that has engulfed the South American nation. Late in the day, President Donald Trump threatened a “full and complete embargo” and sanctions on Cuba if its troops do not cease operations in Venezu-

ela. National Security Adviser John Bolton alleged earlier that Cuban troops were keeping Maduro in power in Caracas. Trump and senior foreign policy figures in his administration all weighed in during the day, casting the effort headed by opposition leaders Juan Guaido and Leopoldo Lopez as a move to restore democracy, not an attempted coup like the short-lived effort to oust then-President Hugo Chavez in 2002 that seemed to have U.S. support. “We are with you!” Vice President Mike Pence tweeted to the opposition. Pence, who has had a lead role in the administration’s effort to persuade Maduro to give up power, told the opposition group, “America will stand with you until freedom & democracy are restored.”

Likewise Trump himself tweeted that he was monitoring the situation and “the United States stands with the people of Venezuela and their Freedom!” Lopez, the country’s most prominent opposition activist, had been under house arrest, and his sudden appearance would seem to have required the cooperation of troops who guard him. However, late Tuesday, he sought refuge with his family in the Chilean Embassy in Caracas, a discouraging sign for supporters of the uprising. Bolton said it was a “very delicate moment” for Venezuela. “If this effort fails, they will sink into a dictatorship from which there are very few possible alternatives,” he said at the White House.

Dems say Trump agrees on $2 trillion infrastructure goal By KEVIN FREKING and LISA MASCARO Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In a rare moment of bipartisanship in polarized Washington, President Donald Trump and Democratic congressional leaders agreed Tuesday to work toward a $2 trillion infrastructure plan to rebuild roads and bridges, provide clean water and extend broadband coverage — but they put off the thorny matter of how to pay for it. Both sides seemed determined to show a willingness to work with the other, even as tensions between the White House and congressional Democrats have only intensified with the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report on Russia meddling in the 2016 elections.

Democrats have multiple investigations of the Trump administration underway, and Trump’s White House is strongly resisting them. But Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said there was “good will in the meeting” — a marked departure from the last

White House encounter between Trump, Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which ended with Trump walking out in a huff. At Tuesday’s more muted meeting, by contrast, Trump at one point offered to share his Tic Tacs with Pelosi and she

accepted, a Democratic aide recounted. “We did come to one agreement: that the agreement would be big and bold,” Pelosi said. Schumer added that: “In previous meetings, the president has said, ‘If these investigations continue, I can’t work with you.’” But this time, Schumer said, “He didn’t bring it up.” Schumer said the two sides agreed that infrastructure investments create jobs and make the United States more competitive economically with the rest of the world. Most importantly, Schumer said, “we agreed on a number.” “Originally, we had started a little lower. Even the president was eager to push it up to $2 trillion, and that is a very good thing,” Schumer said.

Charter for Trump energy panel expires, meetings cancelled By MATTHEW Brown Associated Press

BILLINGS, Mont. — Federal officials cancelled without explanation all upcoming meetings of an advisory panel that had been created by the Trump administration to make it easier to extract fossil fuels from publicly leased land and offshore sites. The Royalty Policy Committee was established two years ago by former Interior Sec. Ryan Zinke. Its goal was to eliminate obstacles to drilling and mining faced by oil, natural gas and coal companies while ensuring a fair return to taxpayers. The committee’s charter expired April 21, Interior Department spokeswoman Molly Block said. Upcoming meetings scheduled in Pittsburgh later this week and Salt Lake City in August were cancelled, she said.

A January meeting in Phoenix had been previously postponed. The committee attracted sharp criticism from conservationists and others who alleged its membership was stacked in favor of the energy industry. They asked a federal judge in Montana last year to disband the group and strike down its recommendations, including changes to how energy companies calculate what they owe taxpayers for pumping natural gas from public sites. Block declined to give a reason for why the group’s charter was allowed to expire. That left critics to speculate that it may have been disbanded because of legal pressures. U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy ruled in January that the committee had an obligation to make its meetings and records open to the

public. “We will continue to work to stop the Trump administration and its industry allies from making public lands policy behind closed doors,” said Charisma Troiano from Democracy Forward, which is representing the Montanabased Western Organization of Resource Councils in the case before Molloy. But energy industry representatives said the committee could yet be revived under Zinke’s successor, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, a former lobbyist for oil and gas companies. It’s possible Bernhardt simply has not gotten around to renewing the committee’s charter, said Kathleen Sgamma, president of the industry-backed Western Energy Alliance and an alternate member of the committee. Another possibility is that Bernhardt has decided to focus on recom-

mendations already made, she added. “It may be better to actually get some of those priority recommendations done within the next year and a half rather than identify new issues to tackle,” Sgamma said. The committee’s members included industry executives; officials from energy states such as Texas, Wyoming and North Dakota; tribal representatives; academics and at least one industry consultant. Earlier this month, a federal judge in California reinstated an Interior Department rule adopted under President Barack Obama that was intended to increase royalty payments from companies that extract fossil fuels from federal land. The Interior Department had revoked the so-called valuation rule during Zinke’s tenure.

Around the Nation Minneapolis officer convicted of murder in 911 caller death MINNEAPOLIS — A Minneapolis police officer was convicted of third-degree murder Tuesday in the fatal shooting of an unarmed woman who approached his squad car minutes after calling 911 to report a possible rape behind her home, a rare instance of an officer being convicted after asserting he fired in a lifeor-death situation. Mohamed Noor was also found guilty of manslaughter in the July 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia whose death bewildered and angered people in both countries. Noor, a two-year veteran who had said he felt “called to serve” as a police officer and shifted from a career in business, was acquitted of the most serious charge of intentional second-degree murder. But he still faces a presumptive sentence of up to 17 years on the two convictions. Noor was handcuffed and taken into custody immediately despite his attorney’s request that he be free on bond pending sentencing June 7. He showed no visible emotion and did not look back at his family, but his wife was crying. Members of Damond’s family, also in the courtroom, showed no evident emotion.

West Virginia hospitals sue opioid companies; want damages CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Hospitals in West Virginia have banded together to sue some of the country’s largest opioid companies, saying they flooded Appalachia with powerful painkillers and forced medical centers to deal with the financial repercussions. Nearly 30 West Virginia hospitals and 10 affiliates in Kentucky have signed on to the suit filed Monday in Marshall County, West Virginia. The hospitals’ lawyer said the case is the first time a large group of hospitals in a state has teamed up to take legal action against opioid firms. The hospitals are seeking monetary damages to cover the costs of treating people with opioid addictions. The suit is just the latest legal action against opioid companies. There are about 2,000 such suits across the country filed by state and local governments, American Indian tribes, unions, hospitals and others seeking to hold the drug industry responsible for the opioid crisis. Hospitals in West Virginia, which has the nation’s highest opioid overdose rate, “are at the front line of the opioid epidemic, and our ability to deliver care has been compromised because of the enormous amount of resources we have had to dedicate to treating those affected by it,” said Ronald Pellegrino, chief operating officer at West Virginia University Hospitals, one of the plaintiffs. OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma and members of its controlling family, the Sacklers, are named as defendants, along with distributors such as AmerisourceBergen and Cardinal Health, among others. Chesterbrook, Pennsylvania-based AmerisourceBergen issued a statement calling the suit “counterproductive.” “A significant number of these doctors - 38 percent in the U.S. - are employed by hospitals, which is where in many cases they prescribe, fulfill through distributors, and then dispense medications to patients,” the statement reads. “This is why hospitals pursuing legal action related to opioid abuse against other members of the supply chain is counterproductive and ignores the facts.” — The Associated Press

Rural Catholic church defies Sri Lanka threats, holds Mass By JON GAMBRELL Associated Press

THANNAMUNAI, Sri Lanka — The checkpoints started just outside of an east Sri Lanka village, the strictest seen in the days after Islamic State-aligned militants launched suicide attacks that killed over 250 people. The trucks stopped first, soldiers digging through crates and produce. Buses disgorged their passengers. Cars lined up single file so soldiers could open their hoods to inspect engine blocks and pull everything out of trunks. The reason became clear soon after, as the sound of hymns filled the air of Thannamunai. The small village in eastern Sri Lanka held likely the first Mass since Catho-

lic leaders closed all their churches for fear of further attacks. Under incredibly tight security, worshippers watched a priest be ordained as they hoped for a future when Mass wouldn’t require hundreds of troops armed with assault rifles to defend it. “People wanted to celebrate Mass, they wanted to participate in this, but they — even myself — were afraid,” Father Norton Johnson told Associated Press journalists who witnessed the Mass. “However, security personnel gave us good protection.” The Mass in Thannamunai, about 140 miles northeast of the capital, Colombo, had been planned at least two weeks earlier to mark the ordination with the participation of some 200 priests. They had ex-

pected thousands to attend the ceremony at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Then came Easter. The morning of April 21, suicide bombers attacked three churches and three hotels across Sri Lanka. Soon after, the U.S. Embassy in Colombo warned against attending services at any place of worship in the multiethnic nation of 21

million Buddhists, Christians, Hindus and Muslims. Catholic leaders then closed all their churches. Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, the archbishop of Colombo, celebrated Mass this past Sunday at his residence, with the country’s leaders attending. The faithful prayed on their knees at home, watching his homily in a televised broadcast.

Emperor announces abdication as Japan marks end of era By MARI YAMAGUCHI Associated Press

TOKYO — Japanese Emperor Akihito announced his abdication at a palace ceremony Tuesday in his final address, as the nation embraced the end of his reign with reminiscence and hope for a new era. “Today, I am concluding my duties as the emperor,” Akihito said as he stood in front of the throne, as other members of the royal family and top government officials watched. “Since ascending the throne 30 years ago, I have performed my duties as the emperor with a deep sense of trust in and

of the state,” Akihito said in his last official duty as emperor. As he walked out of the room following his speech and officials were taking away the imperial regalia

in a box, Akihito turned around, paused and bowed to the audience. His reign ran through midnight, when his son Crown Prince Naruhito, who observed Akihito’s abdication ceremony, became the new emperor and his era began. Naruhito will formally ascend the Chrysanthemum throne on Wednesday. In a separate ceremony he will receive the imperial regalia of sword and jewel as well as the imperial seals as proof of his succession as the nation’s 126th emperor, according to official palace count, which historians say could include mythical figures until around the 5th century.

PEMBA, Mozambique — Rains pounded parts of northern Mozambique on Tuesday, several days after Cyclone Kenneth struck the southern African nation, while the U.N. said aid workers faced difficulties in reaching thousands of survivors and the death toll rose to 41, the government said. The rains and flooding kept needed supplies from arriving in the main city of Pemba on Monday and will be a challenge in the days ahead as more wet weather is forecast, said U.N. humanitarian spokeswoman Gemma Connell in an interview with The Associated Press. The government again urged residents of Pemba to flee to higher ground. More than 22 inchesof rain have fallen in Pemba since Kenneth made landfall on April 25, just six weeks after Cyclone Idai tore into central Mozambique.

Algerian ex-prime minister summoned in corruption probe ALGIERS, Algeria — Algerian ex-Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia went before a prosecutor Tuesday as part of a wide-ranging corruption investigation that has targeted figures in the entourage of former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, forced to resign after two decades in office. Ouyahia was questioned on counts of “dilapidation of public funds” and “granting illegal benefits.” However, he left hours later, a disappointment for demonstrators outside the courthouse who chased his car as it sped away. Some protesters held up yogurt jars in a mocking reference to a remark by Ouyahia who once said that not everyone needs to eat yogurt, the TSA Algerie online news site reported. The current finance minister and former Bank of Algeria Governor Mohamed Loukal was questioned on the same counts Monday. The two were among a raft of personalities on the radar of judicial officials vigorously moving ahead with probes of alleged corruption under Bouteflika. Protesters demonstrate nationwide each Friday to denounce corruption and force all linked to the Bouteflika era to leave office. Army chief Ahmed Gaid Salah pressed prosecutors to step up their corruption campaign in one of several speeches he has made in response to Algeria’s crisis triggered by Bouteflika’s now-thwarted bid to seek a fifth mandate. Gaid Salah, backing protesters, pressed Bouteflika to step down. — The Associated Press

About my birthday and thinking I was adopted April 29, this past Monday, was my 82nd birthday. I marvel at all the eras I have lived through and still have the memory to tell about. I was born in 1937 while America was climbing out of the Depression. Dad would talk about it a little and Mom not at all. They learned to be frugal and practical at all times. Dad was born in Kansas — the third child of a family of four boys and three girls. They worked hard on a farm in Westfall, Kansas, during the Depression. I am sure at times their mother, my grandmother Hatie McClure, worked just as hard at baking bread and figuring out what she should serve for the next meal. She also saw to it that they all went to church because she drove them there herself. I have conjured up a picture of her in an old Model T with seven kids scrubbed shiny clean, with clean clothes she washed on a washboard and starched and ironed with a “glad iron” that was parked on the cook stove to get hot. She would iron until that needed to be exchanged for the hot one on the stove. It took long hours to have clean, ironed clothes for her family. Now in the modern era we have automatic washing machines and dryers. I bet not too many even own an ironing board anymore. I still have one. However, I seldom iron as clothes are wash and wear. Mom cooked fine, balanced meals and we were expected to eat every bite. We cleaned our plate at the dinner table, with the last crust of bread to sop up the last of the gravy. She talked about when Dad and her were first married; they lived on macaroni and tomatoes and homemade bread. They acquired a few chickens for eggs and Dad had an old milk cow that provided the milk and cream. Dad told of the times he and his family had popped corn with milk on it for cereal for breakfast. I could never imagine that as we always had popped corn with real butter and bacon grease. See ANNIE, page A8

A foolproof way to make chicken drumsticks ultra-tender By America’s Test Kitchen The Associated Press

With their built-in handles and small size, economical chicken drumsticks are tailor-made for a cookout. So we decided to devise a foolproof way to roast them on the grill to ultra-tender perfection with nicely browned skin and wonderfully juicy meat. We usually don’t brine fattier dark meat, but since we were roasting the drumsticks for a fairly long time in the grill’s dry heat we brined them first in salt water to help them retain their juices as well as to season them. A light coating of spice rub also upped their flavour. We set up a half-grill fire with two zones: On the cooler side we roasted the drumsticks beyond their usual doneness temperature of 175 F to 190 F, at which point most of their connective tissue had turned into rich gelatin and their skin had rendered gently. Indirect grilling is largely hands off, but halfway through roasting we rearranged the drumsticks, moving those closer to the heat to the outside and those on the outside closer to the heat to ensure all of the drumsticks were done at the same time. We moved them to the hotter side until the skin was nicely charred and crisp, which took only 5 minutes. Before applying the spice rub, smooth the skin over the drumsticks so it is covering as much surface area as possible. This will help the skin render evenly and prevent the meat from drying out.

GRILL-ROASTED SPICE-RUBBED CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS Servings: 6 Start to finish: 40 minutes plus 30-60 minutes brining 1/2 cup salt 5 pounds chicken drumsticks 1 recipe spice rub (recipes follow) Dissolve salt in 2 quarts cold water in large container. Submerge drumsticks in brine, cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Place spice rub on plate. Remove drumsticks from brine and pat dry with paper towels. Holding 1 drumstick by bone end, press lightly into rub on all sides. Pat gently to remove excess rub. Repeat with remaining drumsticks.

— For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent halfway. Light large chimney starter filled with charcoal briquettes (6 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour evenly over half of grill. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent halfway. 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. Leave primary burner on high and turn off other burner(s). (Adjust primary burner as needed to maintain grill temperature between 325 F and 350 F.) Clean and oil cooking grate. Place drumsticks,

skin side down, on cooler side of grill. Cover and cook for 25 minutes. Rearrange pieces so that drumsticks that were closest to edge are now closer to heat source and vice versa. Cover and cook until drumsticks register 185 F to 190 F, 20 to 30 minutes. Move all drumsticks to hotter side of grill and cook, turning occasionally, until skin is nicely charred, about 5 minutes. Transfer to serving dish and let rest for 10 minutes. Serve. Barbecue Spice Rub Makes about 1/3 cup 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar 1 tablespoon paprika 1 tablespoon chili pow-

Cauliflower on the grill? Don’t be scared. It’s easy on its own, but to dress it up, serve it sprinkled with 1 tablespoon of Almond, Raisin, and Caper Relish (recipe follows).


This image provided by America’s Test Kitchen shows grilled cauliflower. (America’s Test Kitchen via AP) By America’s Test Kitchen The Associated Press

To make grilled cauliflower with a tender interior and a flavourful, nicely browned exterior, we first microwaved it until it was cooked through and then briefly grilled it to pick up colour and flavour. To ensure that the cauliflower held up on the grill without falling through the grate and to provide suf-

ficient surface area for browning, we cut the head into wedges. Dunking the cauliflower in a salt and sugar solution before microwaving seasoned it all over, even in the nooks and crannies. Look for cauliflower with densely packed florets that feels heavy for its size. Using tongs or a thin metal spatula to gently flip the wedges helps keep them intact. This dish stands well

Servings: 4-6 Start to finish: 35 minutes 1/4 cup salt 2 tablespoons sugar 1 head cauliflower (2 pounds), cut into 6 equal wedges 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives 1 tablespoon topping (recipe follows) Lemon wedges Whisk 2 cups water, salt, and sugar in medium bowl until salt and sugar dissolve. Holding wedges by core, gently dunk in salt-sugar mixture until evenly moistened (do not dry—residual water will help cauliflower steam). Transfer wedges, rounded side down, to large

plate and cover with inverted large bowl. Microwave until cauliflower is translucent and tender and paring knife slips easily in and out of thickest stem of florets (not core), 14 to 16 minutes. Carefully (bowl and cauliflower will be very hot) transfer cauliflower to paper towel-lined plate and pat dry with paper towels. Brush cut sides of wedges 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 medium-high. Clean and oil cooking grate. Place cauliflower,

cut side down, on grill and cook, covered, until well browned with spots of charring, 3 to 4 minutes. Using tongs or thin metal spatula, flip cauliflower and cook second cut side until well browned with spots of charring, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip again so cauliflower is sitting on rounded edge and cook until browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer cauliflower to serving platter. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, sprinkle with chives and topping, and serve with lemon wedges. Almond, Raisin, and Caper Relish Makes about 1/2 cup Golden raisins plus briny capers, crunchy almonds, and white wine vinegar make for a sweet, salty, and tangy topping. Champagne vinegar can be used in place of white wine vinegar and regular raisins in place of golden raisins, if desired. 2 tablespoons golden raisins

1 teaspoon white wine vinegar 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted and chopped fine 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and chopped fine 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley Pinch red pepper flakes 3-4 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil Salt and pepper Combine raisins and 2 tablespoons hot water in small bowl and let stand for 5 minutes. Drain raisins and chop fine. Toss raisins and vinegar in bowl, then stir in almonds, capers, parsley, and pepper flakes. Stir in 3 tablespoons oil mixture should be well moistened. If still dry, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 233 calories 145 calories from fat 16 g fat (2 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 0 mg cholesterol 1021 mg sodium 18 g carbohydrate 6 g fiber 10 g sugar 6 g protein.

. . . Annie

Dad worked hard to succeed on the farm and eventually he bought Continued from page A7 several ranches. Mom took her station in life very seriously and everything she did was for the family. She once told me how lucky she was that she did not have to boil macaroni and tomatoes for a meal anymore. The fine meals she learned to prepare were serious business with her. When the new addition to the old farmhouse was built, and a new kitchen installed, Mom got a big, white electric cooking stove to replace the huge iron cook stove that stood in the corner of an add-on lean-to. My fondest recollection of Mom is her standing in front of her brandnew cook stove conjuring up what her next meal would be. It always was delicious. This was during and after World War II. The rationed items were hard to get, requiring coupons and tokens. Sugar, flour and meat were a few of the items I remember. Mom made the best of the rations and we always had well-balanced, delicious meals. Mom canned all the vegetables and fruit and made tons of jelly and pickles. Very seldom did she buy canned goods of any kind until much later. Mom’s kitchen also graduated from an ice box to an electric refrigerator. We kids sure missed the ice man as we got big chunks of ice to suck on after he left. NO paper towels in those days and we each got a wash cloth to hold the ice. My first recollection of the farm is when my Dad was headed to the barn, always in a hurry to milk the cow and get on with his farming chores. I was running as fast as my 6-year-old legs could. I was trying to keep up with my Dad’s fast pace with the milk bucket in his hand. “Dad-Dad, how come Butch has black hair, Ginger has pretty curly auburn hair and Mom has black hair and you have auburn hair and I have this white straight stringy stuff??” Dad nickname for me was “cotton-top.” Being in his usual hurry he shot a glance at me and said, “Oh, I found you in the woodpile!” I stopped in my tracks, looked at him as he hurried off to the barn and I started to cry. He thought he had answered my question and went to milk Bessie. I knew it! I just knew it! I AM Adopted! My hair does not match anyone else around here. I went into a worrywart state about being adopted and wondered who my real family was until I was 12 years old. Dad and I and a couple others were in the living room lying on the floor looking at the “Pitcher Album” with all the photos of the family. This was the Sunday afternoon entertainment, especially if we had company. We all listened to stories Dad would tell (as if we had not heard them a million times) and laugh just as hard as Dad would when he finished. He turned to a page of the album and there was my Grandma Cogswell, (my mother’s Mom ) — she had white hair! I yelled at the top of my lungs, “I LOOK LIKE MY GRANDMA!!” I scared the half-sleeping, belly-filled guests wide awake. Dad looked at me in utter amazement and answered, “Of course you do!” “And I am not adopted?” I blurted out. Well, of course not — whoever told you that? He said to me in a mater of fact tone. I never said a word or offered any explanation, but from then on I never worried about being adopted! And I loved my Grandma even more, but I never told Dad. He would have laughed at me anyway. I have lived through many eras as many of you have. The end of the Depression in the late 30s, World War II in the 40s. My world opened up when I went to grade school at Cactus Hill Observatory #101 and then it really opened up when I made friends in high school. I still converse with most and some have traveled to Alaska to see me. I was married when I was 20 and my three kids being born is the highlight of my whole life. Moving to Alaska was another big, big adventure and I went through many fazes of struggles and happiness until 32 years ago when Bob and I met and as the saying goes, “We have lived happily ever after!” We have many friends and most of us watch out for each other. I am so happy that my three kids live close by and three grand kids live here and one in Washington and two great grandkids live here and one in Washington. I am eternally grateful for my health and the happiness of my every day life.

Soaking chicken in seasoned buttermilk guarantees that your crispy chicken will come out of the oven moist and juicy on the inside. Salt doesn’t just enhance flavour—when you soak meat in a salty solution (a brine), the salt reshapes protein molecules and helps them hold onto moisture when the meat is cooked. Buttermilk contains lactic acid, which is a mild acid that gently breaks down some proteins and makes chicken more tender. Follow this recipe with your kids.

CRISPY OVEN-FRIED CHICKEN Servings: 4 Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 1 1/2 hours Prepare Ingredients: 2 cups buttermilk 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard Salt and pepper 1 teaspoon garlic powder 3 pounds bone-in chicken pieces (split breasts, drumsticks, and/or thighs) Vegetable oil spray

HALIBUT FINGERS This is my invention. I got thumbs up and smiles. The batter is enough for four generous servings so plan you halibut accordingly. Trim partially thawed halibut or fresh halibut of all dark pieces. Cut in 1-inch strips, 4 inches long. Drain and pat dry. In one paper plate, add 1 cup flour In another paper plate, place 1 cup Panko or Italian dry bread crumbs. In a small mixing bowl, combine: 1 cup of flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon each lemon pepper and garlic salt. A pinch of cayenne pepper Enough water to make a thin batter. Stir and set aside. Roll the drained and patted-dry halibut fingers in paper plates with flour. Dip in batter, lift out and let drain until stops dripping. Roll in the Panko or Italian bread crumbs. Place in deep fat fryer and fry until deep brown and the fingers lift to the top. Dip out with slotted spoon and drain. Serve with your favorite tartar or chili sauce, or ketchup mixed with horseradish sauce. All you need with this is garlic toast and a green salad.

SoHi baseball takes care of rival Kenai By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

The Soldotna baseball team notched an 11-1 victory over Kenai Central in five innings on Tuesday in Southcentral Conference play at the Soldotna Little League fields. The Stars move to 1-0 in the league and 1-4 overall, while the Kardinals fall to 0-3 overall and 0-1 in the league. The game was tied at 1 after the first inning, but Soldotna took control in a five-run second inning highlighted by a towering, tworun home run from Jacob Boze — the first of his high school career. Soldotna head coach Robb Quelland said Boze showed improvement during the American Legion season last summer and has

continued to excel this season. Quelland said Boze hits for power, threw out three runners from his catcher’s position in one game already this season, and also adds speed to the top of the lineup along with Jeremy Kupferschmid, David Michael and Tanner Ussing. Four Soldotna pitchers — Kupferschmid, Ussing, Trapper Thompson and Davey Belger — combined to hold the Kardinals to a hit and a run, while walking four and striking out eight. With conference home games Thursday against Wasilla at 6 p.m., Friday against Colony at 6 p.m. and Saturday against Grace Christian at noon and 2 p.m., Quelland had the hurlers on specific pitch counts. “The way we wanted it to happen is the way it happened,” Quelland said.

Michael went 3 for 3 with three runs and two RBIs to fire up the Soldotna offense, while Kupferschmid had two runs and Ussing added a pair of RBIs. The Stars had seven hits as a team, but were aided by the combined eight walks issued by Kenai Central pitchers Caleb Smith, Parker Mattox and Knox Amend. “We have to eliminate the balls and the walks,” Kenai coach Luke Oliver said. “We are giving out too many free bases and then a hit or two turns into a lot of runs.” The game was clean defensively, with Kenai committing one error and Soldotna playing error-free. “Our defense was fine,” Oliver said. “That’s what I tell our pitchers. You don’t have to get strikeouts. Let See BATS, page A10

Mariners swat Stars softball Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The Homer softball team blasted Soldotna 13-4 in a Northern Lights Conference matchup Tuesday in Homer. The Mariners (6-6 overall) exploded for eight runs in the second inning to take a lead they would not give up. SoHi dropped to 1-2 overall with the loss. SoHi struck first with an RBI single by Janna Kriegr in the first inning to grab a 1-0 lead. Casey Earll, Bailey Berger and Kriegr all singled with two outs to score the Stars’ first run. In the top of the second, SoHi added to its lead with a two-run double by Casey Card to push the advantage to 3-0, but Homer was warming up for a big show in the bottom of the second.

The Mariners got on the board with an RBI groundout by Dellah Harris, then took the lead on a two-out grand slam by Grace Godfrey, giving Homer a 5-3 lead. The Mariners kept piling on with a run-scoring single from Kaitlyn Johnson and a two-run single by Becca Chapman to push the lead to 8-3. Godfrey, Haylee Owen and Chapman all finished with two hits on the day to lead SoHi. Berger and Estrella Slats both had two hits each to lead SoHi’s offense. Annalyn Brown pitched all five innings for Homer and whiffed four while scattering nine hits and issuing one walk. SoHi starter Casey Earll gave up 10 hits and six walks with four strikeouts in four frames.

Kenai kickers sweep Nikiski

Couture hat trick gives Sharks win

Kards get hat tricks from Morris, Lofquist in big victories

By PAT GRAHAM AP Sports Writer

By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

Kenai Central girls soccer coach Dan Verkuilen entered Tuesday with some concern to how his team would respond after a week off from game action, but it didn’t take long to quell his fears. The Kardinals trounced

the Bulldogs 7-1 in a Peninsula Conference contest at Nikiski High School. Later in the evening, the Kenai boys defeated Nikiski 8-0 to complete a boys-girls sweep for the Kardinals. “One thing was we didn’t want to come out flat,” Verkuilen said. “Being on the (natural) grass

is different with the ball movement being a little slower, but the girls responded quick and it was nice to get that early lead.” In its first game action since an 11-0 win over Seward on April 23, Kenai scored two goals within a minute of each other, starting with Karley Harden’s poke into the net in the

seventh minute, which was followed by Bethany Morris’ strike on a slick cross from Olivia Brewer. Morris went on to tally a hat trick for Kenai, showcasing her speed and ball-handling skills in her second year with the team. “She’s coming on,” Verkuilen said. “I saw a lot of See GOAL, page A10

DENVER — San Jose center Gustav Nyquist had a couple of special deliveries this week. On Monday, his wife gave birth to their first child. He rejoined the team Tuesday and assisted on Logan Couture recording his first career playoff hat trick. “Perfect timing,” the beaming new father said. Couture scored three

times, including the goahead goal with 7:10 remaining, and the Sharks beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-2 to take a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series. Nyquist flew to Detroit to welcome his daughter, Charlotte, into the world. He returned to the team hours before the game and had two assists. “It’s been an emotional few days but an unbelievSee NHL, page A10

Durant leads the way again, Warriors take 2-0 lead on Rockets By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer

OAKLAND, Calif. — Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors brought it on both ends, kept their mouths shut and handled business at home against James Harden and the Rockets. Now, the two-time defending champions are headed to Houston with a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinal. Durant scored 29 points and established an early defensive tone against Harden, leading the War-

riors past the Rockets 115-109 on Tuesday night as the focus refreshingly returned to basketball after two days of constant chatter about the officiating. “Tonight I think it was a great officiated game,” Golden State’s Draymond Green said. “They let us be physical, both teams, and they made the calls they needed to make. It was kind of disheartening for a game that I love since I was a child to see the talk over the last two days was nothing about basketball and everything about foul calls. Is that what this game is

coming to?” Harden got hit in both eyes early but was able to return and finished with 29 points and seven rebounds “I barely could see,” said Harden, who was treated with eye drops. Boos regularly greeted both Harden and Chris Paul at deafening Oracle Arena, where the Rockets complained after a 104100 Game 1 defeat that the officials missed foul calls when the Warriors closed out on Houston’s 3-point shooters.

Klay Thompson scored 21 points and hit consecutive 3-pointers late in the third. Green had 15 points, 12 rebounds — three on the offensive end over two possessions in the opening quarter — and seven assists. Game 3 is Saturday in Houston. BUCKS 123, CELTICS 102 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 29 points and 10 rebounds and Khris Middleton made seven of Milwaukee’s franchise playoff-high 20 3-pointers, helping the Bucks even their second-round play-

off series against the Boston Celtics with a 123-102 victory Tuesday night. Antetokounmpo, one of the top candidates for NBA MVP, went 7 for 16 from the floor and 13 of 18 at the foul line. It was an important turnaround for Milwaukee after he had 22 points on 7-for-21 shooting in Game 1 on Sunday. Middleton finished with 28 points. Bledsoe, who was held to six points in the series opener, finished with 21 points and five assists. The Bucks led by as many as 31 points after a closely played opening half. Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series is Friday night in Boston.

it last year with Bethany, just that formation of being a good forward and outside mid, and this year she’s kind of grown into her body and has deceptive moves. Those long legs can separate from you.” Karley Harden finished with two goals, while Alyssa Bucho and Taylor Pierce also scored for the Kards, who moved to 3-0-2 and 4-1-2 overall this season. Nikiski fell to 1-3-0 and 1-3-2 overall, and got its lone goal from Jordyn Stock on a second-half penalty kick in the 55th minute. Nikiski head coach Linda Zimmerman said after losing 8-0 to Soldotna on Monday, the loss to Kenai looked better to her. “I thought they played better today,” Zimmerman said. “I know the score doesn’t show that, I think (goalie) Abby (Bystedt) had an off day, but we’re all going to have an off day.” Bystedt played the whole game for Nikisk in goal, while Kailey Hamilton held tough in goal for Kenai, only allowing the PK shot. Kenai led 3-0 at halftime, including a second goal by Morris in the 23rd minute on a through ball by Bucho. Harden and Morris kept the good times rolling for the Kards with two goals in the first five minutes of the second half to put Kenai up 5-0. Stock’s PK cut the lead to 5-1, and Bucho and Pierce added insurance strikes in the 69th and 80th minutes, respectively. Kenai boys 8, Nikiski 0 Kardinals sophomore Leif Lofquist scored a hat trick and junior Braedon Pitsch earned the blank sheet in goal to help the Kenai boys roar to a dominant victory Tuesday at Nikiski. The win lifted Kenai to 5-0-1 in the Peninsula Conference and 5-2-1 overall, while Nikiski dropped to 1-5 and 3-5 overall. Kenai head coach Shane Lopez said competing on Nikiski’s smaller field with natural grass forced the Kards to adapt, but still allowed them to play their style of game. “They have a smaller field, so it’s kind of interesting to have a shot on target from midfield,” Lopez said. In the first meeting of the year between the two sides on April 11, the Bulldogs showed they weren’t messing around by forging a 1-1 halftime tie with Kenai before falling in a 4-1 loss. Tuesday on Nikiski’s home field, Kenai was not about to let that happen again, and senior Damien Redder and Lofquist each found the netting in the first half to put Kenai up 2-0 at halftime. The Kards sealed the win in the second half with goals from Francisco Garmen Munarriz, Travis McKinley and Redder and Lofquist again. Lopez said moving James Baisden and Johann Carranza around paid dividends as both midfield options played well, and added that Roman Custodio stepped up on the defensive line.

In 1982, the World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee, was opened by President Ronald Reagan. In 1992, on the third day of the Los Angeles riots, a visibly shaken Rodney King appeared in public to appeal for calm, pleading, “Can we all get along?” In 2011, President Barack Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden during a U.S. commando operation (because of the time difference, it was early May 2 in Pakistan, where the al-Qaida leader met his end). Ten years ago: Supreme Court Justice David Souter announced his retirement effective at the end of the court’s term in late June. (President Barack Obama chose federal judge Sonia Sotomayor to succeed him.) Singer-actor-impressionist Danny Gans, one of Las Vegas’ most popular entertainers, died at age 52. Five years ago: Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called a 50-percent jump in reports by members of the military of sexual assaults the previous year a “clear threat” to both male and female service members’ lives and well-being, and said he’d ordered Pentagon officials to increase efforts to get male victims to report abuse. One year ago: Entering the State Department headquarters for the first time as America’s top diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo vowed to reinvigorate American diplomacy and help the United States get “back our swagger.” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein lashed out at Republican allies of President Donald Trump who had drafted articles of impeachment against Rosenstein, saying the Justice Department would not give in to threats.

Thought for Today: “Any man who has the brains to think and the nerve to act for the benefit of the people of the country is considered a radical by those who are content with stagnation and willing to endure disaster.” -- William Randolph Hearst, American newspaper publisher (1863-1951).

Wife in love with girlfriend resolves to end her marriage Once you know what your financial responsibilities may -- or may not -- be, you will be in a better position to give your husband the bad news. When you do, a way to start would be to tell him you have realized that you are a lesbian. DEAR ABBY: My Abigail Van Buren boyfriend, “Mason,” and I have been dating for eight months, and it has been going well. However, there is one thing standing in our way -- his mom and sisters. Mason is the only boy. His parents divorced when he was young. His mom never remarried, but his father did. His two sisters (one older, one younger) don’t have boyfriends. The three of them constantly make comments whenever Mason and I go out and do things -- that he’s spending too much money or isn’t at home enough. They critique everything Mason does, from what he wears to how much money he earned in his last paycheck. It’s like they’re obsessed with him. They plan vacations while I’m around and don’t invite me. I haven’t been invited over for any holidays or family functions. I love Mason and

Hints from Heloise


By Leigh Rubin

want to defend a major cause or interest. At the moment, you’ll tend to go to extremes. Pull back and say nothing to others at a distance. Tonight: Find a favorite friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH If possible, defer to others. You have a lot on your mind, which you’ll choose to share at a later date. You could be in your head about a matter that involves your domestic life or a personal issue. Be more direct than you usually are. Tonight: At home. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Listen to the news; pace yourself. You’ll have more to do than you originally anticipated. You’ll be able to cover all bases and accomplish what you want. You’ll make a difference, but you need to take the next few days a little more slowly. Tonight: Say little. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH You seem to be very close to making a dynamic change. Understand more of what’s happening behind the scenes. If you don’t make solid decisions, your finances could be worrisome. Tonight: Where the fun happens. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You stay anchored and you know what’s going on. You might wonder how to maximize your energy and time. Because you might be more bound to reality than you’re aware of, others might seem very odd. Make sure to take good care of yourself. Tonight: Head home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Speak your mind clearly and with greater creativity. Others like your unusual thinking and uniqueness, in general. Nevertheless, you could be concerned about offending others. On some level, you might refuse to integrate what’s being said. Tonight: Hang out. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Curb a tendency to go overboard and lose sense of your finances. You might want to gain more out of your personal life and are willing to be less uptight than you have been in the past. Loosen up, but at the same time, discriminate. Tonight: Treat a friend to munchies. BORN TODAY Director Wes Anderson (1969), singer Tim McGraw (1967), folk hero Calamity Jane (1852)


BARBECUED APRICOT-GLAZED HAM Dear Heloise: Please reprint that apricot recipe for glazing a ham. My family loved it! Since we’re having family from out of town, I’d like to serve it when they come. -- Carol T., Bloomfield Hills, Mich. Carol, I get many, many requests for this recipe, so here it is. You’ll need: 1 (16 ounce) can unpeeled apricot halves 1/4 cup packed brown sugar 4 teaspoons vinegar 2 teaspoons prepared mustard 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 (5 to 7 pound) fully cooked boneless ham Whole cloves Watercress Drain apricots, saving 1/4 cup syrup. Set 6 apricot halves aside for garnish. In a blender, blend the remaining apricot halves, the saved syrup, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and cinnamon. Score the ham with shallow cuts in a diamond pattern and “stud” (insert into the meat) with cloves. Insert a meat thermometer near the center of the ham. To grill, arrange coals around a drip pan; test for medium heat. Place the ham on the rack over the pan, cover and grill for 1 1/4 hours. Brush the ham with the glaze and grill about 15 minutes more or until the meat thermometer registers 140 degrees. Before serving, brush ham with glaze again; garnish with apricot halves and watercress. -- Heloise FOOD IRRADIATION Dear Heloise: I recently heard about food irradiation. What is it, and how does it affect our food? -- Betty F., Beaverton, Ore.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, May 1, 2019: This year, you know what you want and you go for it. You’ll also handle the word “no” well, but you’re likely to get more nods. If single, you meet people with ease but choose to be somewhat distant until you’re sure of yourself. If attached, you spend a lot of quality time with your sweetie, enhancing your caring and closeness. ARIES makes a great confidant. 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) HHHHH You have the ability to sleuth through any hassle that could appear. The key will be deciding that what appears to be an obstacle really isn’t. When you understand the nature of the blockage, you’ll be able to bypass it. Tonight: As you like. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Pulling back and saying very little could be critical. You’ll hear a lot of feedback, which you may want to ignore. Don’t feel as though you must make any decisions at this point in time. Tonight: Play it cool. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Reach out for someone who adds to the moment. This is a person who most likely fulfills the role of a close confidant and friend. Don’t make any agreement over finances or luxury items today. Tonight: Sick of working? Pretend it’s the weekend. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You could be feeling a bit off and wondering what’s happening around you. The waiting game has its pluses. The less you do, the more others act up. You might have a change of heart over a personal matter. Avoid acting on any thought or decision for now. Tonight: Out and about. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Reach out to a person at a distance. You could be tired and withdrawn. Let others do what they enjoy most: running the show. As a result, you could receive an interesting piece of information that could color your thoughts and decisions. Tonight: Keep it low-key. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH One-on-one relating takes you down a new path. You’re fiery and

want a future with him, but I can’t continue dealing with the nonsense from his jealous mom and sisters. It’s causing a huge strain. Mason knows how upset I am. He says he has talked to them, but their behavior hasn’t changed. If he won’t take matters into his own hands, should I? -- COMPETING IN NEW JERSEY DEAR COMPETING: No! Until Mason is mature enough to put his foot down, his mother and sisters will continue to decide for him who he dates, how much time he spends with her and whether he is earning “enough” money to be seeing anyone. You cannot and should not compete with his family because it isn’t healthy for you or your relationship. Remember, Mason will likely always be a package deal, and if you can’t accept it, you should end things. READER ALERT!

DEAR ABBY: I’m married to a man 21 years my senior. “Joe” and I have been married six years. I have recently realized I’m gay and have fallen in love with another woman. Although Joe isn’t infirm or mentally deficient, he has a hard time making decisions on his own. He’ll read something, hand it to me and ask me what I think. He can’t form an opinion on his own, but God forbid you challenge an opinion he DOES have. Over the course of our marriage, he has become “crotchety” and burned all his bridges. Because of this, I have lost friends, business opportunities and my reputation. He got fired from his job three years ago and has never actively tried to find another one. I have carried the family on my own financially. He literally has no one but me. He’s past retirement age, and I’m half that. I have more life to live being who I really AM, but I feel guilty leaving him high and dry. I no longer love him; I love my girlfriend. I want to be out and proud and live what I realize now is my real truth. How can I tell him I want out? -- TRAPPED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR TRAPPED: Before telling your husband anything, discuss this with a divorce lawyer. Leaving him may be complicated because you have been his sole support for a while.

The measure that advanced from the Senate Finance Committee Tuesday calls for a 50-50 split, which would amount to a roughly $2,300 dividend compared to a roughly $3,100 full payout dividend under calculations provided to the committee. It would take effect July

responded to a residence off Carver Drive in Kenai after a homeowner reported returning home to find three people exiting his garage. Investigation led to the arrest of Elizabeth Gail Miller, 26, of Kenai, James Elwood Ohearn, 47, of Sterling, and Diane Louise Crume, 48, of Sterling, on charges of firstdegree burglary and fourthdegree theft. All three were taken to Wildwood Pretrial without bail. n On Apr. 29 at 10:21 p.m., Alaska State Troopers received a report of a stolen Chevrolet Pickup bearing AK license plate FGV541.

The report stated that the vehicle was stolen from a residence on the Old Sterling Highway near Anchor Point. The investigation is ongoing. n On Apr. 20, James Plymire, 58, of Homer, was issued a citation by Alaska Wildlife Troopers, Anchor Point Post, for failure to log a king salmon over 20 inches.

On Apr. 29, acting on tips re-

ceived from the community, troopers located the vehicle suspected to be involved in the theft. The vehicle was occupied by Lucas McAlary, 23, of Seward, and Michelle Meganack, 30, of Seward.

thousands of square miles of wilderness forest. However, early season fires have the potential for significant monetary damage if they burn structures. Last year’s leaves, spruce needles and dead grass are classified as fine fuels. An ember from a burn barrel can flash into a wildfire even without wind, Mowry said.

“If you’re not prepared for that, it can really take off,” he said. “Even if you are prepared, it would be hard to stop if there’s a wind. It’s just a really volatile time right now.” All 13 weekend fires were human-caused. All but two were on the Kenai Peninsula south of Anchorage or in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough

north of Anchorage. A 2.5-acre fire Saturday near Ninilchik forced residents to evacuate four homes. One house was damaged but saved by firefighters from local departments and the Division of Forestry. North of Anchorage, state forestry firefighters responded to six fires that escaped from burn barrels or debris burns.

One damaged a trailer home and destroyed a shed. Another burned a wooden fence. A homeowner attempted to extinguish the fire but could not because water in his garden hose was frozen. Firefighters extinguished an escaped lawn burn Sunday in the village of Northway. State forestry officials issued burn suspensions for

the Kenai Peninsula, Delta and Tok. The suspensions prohibit open debris burning and the use of burn barrels. Camp fires less than 3 feet in diameter are allowed. As of Monday morning, 63 fires had burned 293 acres around the state so far this year, according to the Alaska Interagency Coordination Center.

1, 2020, and Co-Chair Natasha von Imhof said it would come with a financial implication. By one measure, it could leave a potential $865 million deficit. Von Imhof, in an interview, said she would not vote for the bill and said she hopes those who do explain where they expect to get the money. She said she doesn’t see putting the bill on the floor as dangerous. “It’s only dangerous if we pass it,” she said. The Anchorage Republican said the committee has been trying to get various pieces in play “so hopefully

we can get 60 opinions to converge at the end to some agreement and who the heck knows what that’s going to be.” There are 60 members in the Legislature. The committee also has been working on spending cap legislation. Sen. Bill Wielechowski, an Anchorage Democrat, said the dividend bill includes language saying the Legislature may appropriate the money. “I think if we’re going to make a change of this magnitude it should be in the constitution,” he said. Wielechowski last week

said the problem with putting something in law is that legislators could violate it. The dividend debate has loomed large over the legislative session and come to the fore in the session’s final weeks. The committee, in its version of the state operating budget, proposed a full dividend, estimated to be around $3,000 for this year, and moving $13 billion from fund earnings to the fund’s principal, a move support-

ers said is intended to help protect funds and force a conversation on the dividend calculation. Fund earnings are spendable with a simple majority. The full Senate is expected Wednesday to start debating the budget, which with a full dividend would leave an estimated $1.2 billion hole that would need to be filled. Options include the earnings reserve — and taking out more than the law last year called for — and a budget re-

serve fund that’s been drawn down and requires threefourths support in each the House and Senate to tap. The House, in its version of the budget, did not include a dividend amount. Von Imhof has said the state needs to live within its means and pay a dividend it can afford. She sees the full dividend as a negotiating chip with the House. A dividend the state could afford, with a limited capital budget, is about $1,200, she said.

subject of the images. Each one features large rocks being held up precariously by narrow planks of wood. Green said that in the process of creating these pieces he actually went and looked for the right rocks to use as scale models and arranged a

“fashion shoot” of sorts for them in his studio, photographing them and studying the lighting and other details before etching the image onto a plate. Green said that with this series he hopes to highlight the impact that humanity has

on the world, even on something as seemingly inert and unchanging as a rock. In his artist statement he writes of “A boundary between animate life and inanimate life that is more permeable than we currently imagine.” While Green’s share of

the “Of Stone” exhibit was able to be transported in a single box, DeRocchi’s sculptures required a UHaul, a lot of padding and some very careful driving to get from her studio in Anchorage to the Fine Art Center in Kenai. DeRocchi has been creating large-scale ceramic sculptures of animals since around 2004, and the size of her sculptures has only been limited by the size of her kiln. The sculptures on display for “Of Stone” are a number of animals recognizable to most Alaskans: bears, deer, seals and others. DeRocchi does not depict these animals in any sort of traditional sense. The seals are missing their heads, and one of the bears looks scraggly and malnourished. DeRocchi said that with her art she tries to translate her personal experiences of loss and longing into a message that speaks to a broader audience. By using Alaskan animals, DeRocchi hopes to evoke that same sense of loss with her sculptures and make the viewer think about what it would be like if these animals were no lon-

Baker said at a news conference. He said two people were killed, and three remained in critical condition late Tuesday. He said a fourth person’s injuries were less serious. Monfia Drayton, an adjunct professor, was walking onto campus when she heard the shots ring out. She said she began urging students fleeing the danger to go into a parking deck for cover. “I heard one final gunshot and I saw all the children running toward me,” she said. “We started to get all the children pulled into the second floor of the parking deck and the rationale was if we’re in the

parking deck and there’s a shooter and we don’t know where he is, he won’t have a clear shot.” She added: “My thought was, I’ve lived my life, I’ve had a really good life, so, these students deserve the same. And so, whatever I could do to help any child to safety, that’s what I was going to do.” Antonio Rodriguez, 24, who was visiting campus for his friend’s art show, described a chaotic scene. “Just loud bangs. A couple loud bangs and then we just saw everyone run out of the building, like nervous, like a scared run like they were looking behind,” he said. Shortly after UNC

Charlotte issued a campus lockdown, aerial shots from local television news outlets showed police officers running toward a building, while another view showed students running on a campus sidewalk. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department later said that the campus had been secured and that officers were going through buildings to let people who had sheltered in place know that it was safe. In a tweet, Gov. Roy Cooper praised the officers’ quick response. “This is a tragic day for Charlotte and this great university,” he said. “We mourn the lives lost and we will all be here to support

each other.” The university has more than 26,500 students and 3,000 faculty and staff. The campus is located northeast of the city center and is surrounded by residential areas. Spenser Gray, a junior, said she was in a campus building near where the shooting happened watching another student’s presentation when they were alerted to the shooting. “During his presentation which was on one of the campus computers, a popup came up … that there was an active shooter,” she said, adding that she immediately felt panic and worried the gunman could come to her class-

in 2006. His preferred style of printmaking is called intaglio, which involves etching an image onto a copper plate, filling the grooves of the plate with ink and then pressing the ink onto a sheet of paper. Most of Green’s pieces on display at the “Of Stone” exhibit were made using this process, but a few of them were made using limestone rather than copper in a similar process known as lithography. Green said he enjoys printmaking, specifically in intaglio, because it is a medium where he can take his drawings and incorporate a number of different texturing, coloring and layering techniques. Printmaking also allows Green to easily distribute his art wherever it needs to go, because he is able to make as many original prints as he wants using a single etched copper plate. The pieces by Green that will be on display at the Fine Art Center share a common thread as far as the

Campus Police Chief Jeff Baker said authorities received a call around 4:40 p.m. that a suspect armed with a pistol had shot several students. He said officers assembling nearby for a concert rushed to the scene, where they apprehended the male suspect. Authorities did not immediately release the suspect’s identity. “Our officers’ actions definitely saved lives,”

ger around. The inspiration for these sculptures comes from DeRocchi’s own experiences with the natural world. DeRocchi spoke of a trip to Point Hope where she stumbled upon the body of a seal that was missing its head and had a hole in the back of it, exposing its ribcage. This image ended up being one of the sculptures that are part of the “Of Stone” exhibit. Similarly, the inspiration for her malnourished bear sculpture came directly from a famous photograph by National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen of a starving polar bear. Green and DeRocchi’s work will be on display through the month of May at the Kenai Fine Art Center, which is located on Cook Drive in Old Town. The Fine Art Center displays different exhibits from local artists each month, with the first Thursday of each month serving as the opening reception for the exhibits. Beginning May 1, the summer hours for the Fine Art Center are Monday through Saturday from 12 to 5 p.m.

room. “We had no idea where he was … so we were just expecting them at any moment coming into the classroom.” Susan Harden, an UNCC professor and Mecklenburg County Commissioner, was at home when she heard of the shooting. She went to a staging area, she said, to provide support. Harden said she has taught inside the Kennedy building, where the shootings occurred. “It breaks my heart. We’re torn up about what’s happened,” Harden said. “Students should be able to learn in peace and in safety and professors ought to be able to do their jobs in safety.”
