In the news 2 small earthquakes hit Southwest Alaska, agency says CHINIAK — The U.S. Geological Survey reports that two small earthquakes have hit Southwest Alaska. At 1:43 p.m. Sunday, a magnitude 3.4 earthquake hit a spot in the Gulf of Alaska. The agency says the earthquake had an epicenter 147.4 miles southeast of Chiniak, a village of about 50 people. The agency says the earthquake had a depth of 3.7 miles. At 12:43 p.m. Sunday, a magnitude 3.0 earthquake hit the Aleutian Islands. The agency says the earthquake had an epicenter 87.6 miles southwest of Nikolski, a village of about 20 people. The earthquake had a depth of 21 miles. There were no reports of damage for either earthquake.

Single winner of Alaska ice-melt guessing game announced ANCHORAGE — Nenana Ice Classic organizers have announced this year’s winner for the guessing contest. Ice Classic manager Cherrie Forness says Anchorage resident Patricia Andrew was the only person to guess the exact time the ice officially went out on the Tanana River in Nenana. That happened at 12:21 a.m. April 14, the earliest in the contest’s 102-year history. The jackpot is $311,652. Forness says Andrew will receive $224,389.44 after federal taxes are withheld. There is no listing for Andrew in Anchorage. She could not be reached for comment. The payout will be made June 1. Each year, people buy tickets to guess when a tripod mounted on the frozen Tanana River will fall over as ice on the river breaks up. Forness estimates about 287,000 tickets were sold this year. —Associated Press

Assembly to discuss Moose Pass School HEA board By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

A resolution supporting the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District’s efforts to keep Moose Pass School operating in its current location will be heard at

Tuesday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting. The district has said if Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed budget passes, it could result in the closure of six schools — in Moose Pass, Seward, Nikiski,

Homer, Soldotna and Anchor Point. Should Moose Pass School close, the roughly 16 students at the K-7thgrade school would be sent to schools in Seward, about 30 miles away. The Moose Pass School

is housed in a historic building, built in 1930 as the Moose Pass Territorial School. The school is also located within the Kenai Mountains-Turnagain Arm National Heritage Area Corridor, which is a congresSee PASS, page A2

Fashioning a new business New clothing boutique opens in Kenai By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Shop Talk Mother and daughter duo Amanda Reynolds and Melissa Williams are hoping to fill a gap in the local retail market with their new business, Plus by Design. The two are focusing on providing clothing, intimates, swimwear and more for women who wear larger sizes. The two have had their own individual business ventures, but wanted to find a business they could pursue together. The retail shop, located near Trading Bay Road in Kenai, opened its doors March 1.

election results announced By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

The Homer Electric Association held its 69th Annual Meeting of the Members in Kenai on Thursday and elected three directors to the association’s board, two of which were incumbents. According to a May 3 press release from HEA, director Dan Chay of Kenai ran unopposed and was elected to another threeyear term to represent District 1, which covers Nikiski, Kenai and parts of Soldotna. To represent District 2 — which covers Soldotna, Sterling and Kasilof — incumbent Ed Oberts of Soldotna ran against Ed Schmitt of Soldotna. Oberts was reelected. Erin McKittrick of Seldovia ran against Gregory C. Martin, Jr. of Homer to represent District 3, which covers South Kasilof down to the Kachemak Bay Area. Voters elected McKittrick as the District 3 representative. According to the press See HEA, page A3

Flats Bistro showcases local musicians By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

The Flats Bistro south of Kenai expanded its entertainment selection this spring, and may be bringing its late evening set list to its summer schedule as well. Since opening in 2014, the Flats has capitalized on its Kalifornsky Beach location, which looks out on the mouth of the Kenai River, to draw a local crowd looking for a relaxed atmosphere to unwind for the day. The establishment, owned by Luke Thibodeau, has traditionally hosted dinner music each night of the week. Starting in February, the

restaurant and bar added late-night musical options to its menu. “It’s been a lot of fun,”

Thibodeau said. “My staff likes it, people just like an alternative, something else to do that focuses more on

a different environment.” Mike Morgan, a Kenai musician, is one of the local musicians to take advantage of the new playing arena. The longtime guitarist has been a regular on weekend nights, along with fellow peers Garrett Mayer, Matt Boyle and Derek Poppin. In addition to the usual dinner music that Flats has provided, the last three months have seen the addition of alternating Friday and Saturday night shows. Friday Night Live features an opportunity for anyone to show up to try their hand at playing in an open mic setting from 9 to 11 p.m. Saturday features scheduled professional bands

playing for an audience, also during the 9 to 11 p.m. time slot. Morgan said the later hours have been an attractive option to both customers and musicians alike. “The experiment has been a great success,” he said. “It’s a beautiful venue, and Luke and (Flats manager) Willow King have been terrific about accommodating the experiment.” Thibodeau said he tries to provide an alternative option to the bar scene that Kenai and Soldotna already have, something that locals can turn to for easy music and good food. “We try to find (musicians) who don’t play anySee FLATS, page A2

Tourist season could bring measles to Alaska By Ben Hohenstatt Juneau Empire

Measles coming to Alaska isn’t a far-fetched idea, health care professionals said. That’s because this year’s tourist season is expected to be particularly busy. This year there have been more cases of measles in the U.S. than in the past 25 years and there are communities around the world in the midst of measles out-


breaks. “In this day and age of frequent travel and international travel, it’s something that should always be on people’s radar,” said Alison Gaines, Public Health Center nurse manager. “With the amount of travelers expected in a season, it would not at all surprise me if we do see some measles in Alaska.” Measles is a highly contagious virus that can cause fevers, rashes, hospital-

izations and in rare cases deaths. There is cruise ship owned by the Church of Scientology that was recently quarantined near the Caribbean island St. Lucia because of a confirmed case of the measles. Last year, measles was found on an Alaska cruise ship, and in the past ships have been hotbeds of norovirus activity. There have been 704 cases of measles so far this year, Gaines said, and those

cases have been spread across 22 states, including Washington, California and Oregon. In 2019, 1.31 million cruise ship passengers are expected to Alaska, according to Cruise Lines International Association Alaska. Measles symptoms include fever followed by a rash, red and watery eyes, and recent travelers are encouraged to be extra wary of the disease, said Charlee Gribbon, infection preven-

tionist for Bartlett Regional Hospital. Measles is highly contagious and spread through the air, said Gribbon and Gaines. “Measles can last in the air for up to two hours after a person with measles is in the room,” Gaines said. It can also have a severe impact on people who do catch it. “It can be quite dangerous actually, particularly to See BRING, page A2

infants, kids and people who are immunocompromised,” Gaines said. About a quarter of people with measles require hospitalization, Gaines said, and one or two of every thousand measles cases are fatal. There are a few of things people can do to help prevent the spread of measles. One, Gaines said, is washing hands regularly, which is helpful for preventing the spread of most diseases. The other is getting vaccinated. “The best way to prevent yourself from getting measles is of course getting vaccinated,” Gaines said. “Most of the cases of

elag requests the assembly maintain funding for Moose Pass School, ensuring the school continues to operate as a place of learning into the future. “To not do so would negatively alter the educational, economic and cultural fabric of the community,” Szelag said in the

letter. Szelag also wrote that the school has been serving the community’s children for the last 89 years and is the oldest continually used school building in the entire district. Former Gov. Sean Parnell also recognized Moose Pass School’s his-

toric significance. In 2010, Parnell, through executive proclamation, named May 20, 2010, as Moose Pass Territorial School Day, according to the resolution. The resolution, introduced by Assembly Member Kenn Carpenter, will be heard at Tuesday’s assembly meeting.

Morgan, Mayer and Boyle. Thibodeau said the Flats has been able to draw close to 100 customers at times. “It was more or less an experiment to see if there’s an audience in the area for this music,” Thibodeau said. Morgan has benefited from the change. Having moved to Alaska at age 21 from the Buffalo, New York, area, Morgan eventually put together a band known as Men With No Pride, which morphed into Baked Alaskans, and the group is celebrating nearly 27 years together under various guises. Morgan also performs in a group called Spirit Daddies that he and Boyle started. “We are contemporary avante garde rock hip-hop pop, with a little Frank Zappa thrown in for good luck,”

Morgan explained. Morgan said the type of music that he and the other musicians offer are not always the kind popular among the bar scene, but the Friday and Saturday nights opened up by the Flats has provided one great option. “Weekends are when people wanna come out and hear good music,” he said. In past years, the summer has always been the Flats’ biggest moneymaker as the long days and evenings provide a particularly pleasant experience for dining and listening to music by the river. Tourists have been a big boon for the establishment, but Thibodeau said that in order to satisfy the demand for seating, he has had to clear the music stage for additional space,

meaning the summer music season has been held to a minimum each year. Thibodeau said he currently doesn’t have a full summer schedule worked out, but he is looking to get a consistent weekend music selection moving. Currently, Thibodeau said he has a few bands willing to put on a show on select nights, but it’s still coming together. Thibodeau said he has alternating Friday and Saturday night gigs booked for the month of May. The next Saturday night show on May 18 will feature the Dayton Williams Band. Thibodeau said once the first week of June rolls around, the schedule will be reduced, but said there should still be popular groups upcoming.

measles are occurring in unvaccinated people.” Measles, along with mumps and rubella, is one of the illnesses covered by the MMR vaccine, which is administered in two doses. The first dose is recommended for children between 1 year and 15 months of age, Gaines said, and the second dose is recommended for children between 4 and 6. “Ninety-eight percent of the population is immune after they have those two doses, and it’s lifelong,” Gribbon said. However, Gaines said youths and adults who are not vaccinated could also get the vaccine, which is available to most people over the age of 6 months. Gribbon said the vaccine typically isn’t costly for people with health insurance, and there are sub-

sidized options supported by the Alaska Vaccine Distribution Program. State of Alaska Public Health Nursing offers all routine childhood vaccines for children between 2 months and 18 years of age. Gaines said there is a $27.44 administration fee for the MMR, and fees will be assessed on a sliding scale based on family income and size. No one is refused because of inability to pay, she said. Gribbon and Gaines said anyone who is uncertain if they’ve been vaccinated should contact their health care provider to find out. Odds are good most people have had the vaccine, Gaines said since abut 89 percent of kindergarten-age children in the state have had a dose of the MMR vaccine. “That’s a little below

national average, but still pretty good,” Gaines said. For those who plan to travel, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vessel Sanitation Program offers tips for healthy cruising, outbreak updates and sanitation inspection results. CDC’s tips for healthy cruising advise reporting illness to the ship’s medical facility, which is advice that Gaines also shared. “If someone thinks they may have the measles, it’s very important to call their health care provider ahead of arrival so that their provider can make arrangements to decrease potential exposure to other people who are in the clinic — for example, they will not want you to wait in the waiting room with others — because measles is so contagious,” Gaines said.

What others say

Venezuelans are looking for freedom, not civil war Deep uncertainty surrounds

the latest events in Venezuela. Tuesday began with a pre-dawn recorded address to the public by interim president Juan Guaidó, who stood with members of the security forces at a Caracas air base and declared that a long-anticipated barracks uprising against the regime of Nicolás Maduro had begun. Accompanying Mr. Guaidó was opposition leader Leopoldo López, apparently released from his four-year detention by defecting guards. Venezuelans responded to Mr. Guaidó’s call for street protests and were met by troops loyal to Mr. Maduro. By late afternoon, clashes were taking place, regime officials were promising a decisive “counterattack,” and there was no way to know whether “Operation Liberty,” as Mr. Guaidó dubbed this high-risk move, would succeed or be crushed — or devolve into civil war. What is not, or should not be, ambiguous is the political and moral essence of this volatile situation. The Maduro regime has violated human rights on a massive scale, leaving hundreds of peaceful opponents dead, and it has led Venezuela into economic catastrophe. Millions of Venezuelans have fled to other countries, including hundreds of thousands to the United States. Having first been elected in 2013, Mr. Maduro forfeited democratic legitimacy in January 2016, when he purported to deprive the National Assembly of its powers because the opposition had won control the previous month. He then manipulated the political system to create a parallel puppet legislature and, on May 20, 2018, engineered his reelection through a flawed process from which both international observers and leading opposition figures were effectively barred. His inauguration as president for a new term in January, in defiance of warnings from neighboring Latin democracies, prompted Mr. Guaidó, leader of the National Assembly, to declare the presidential office vacant and himself its interim occupant, as provided in the Venezuelan Constitution — and supported by more than 50 countries, including the United States. Therefore, whatever its ultimate outcome or, indeed, its strategic wisdom, Tuesday’s uprising is not a “coup attempt,” as the Maduro regime, echoed by too many people abroad, calls it. Rather, it is the latest in a series of legitimate and, for the most part, nonviolent efforts by Venezuelans, both civilian and military, to throw off an oppressive, toxic regime so that they can freely elect a legitimate government. Supporters of freedom and democracy should stand in solidarity with Mr. Guaidó and the many thousands of Venezuelans now bravely asserting their rights. The Trump administration has backed Mr. Guaidó, including — appropriately — through the use of tough new economic sanctions aimed at pressuring the Maduro regime to cede power, or persuading the Venezuelan military to oust him itself. Possibly, Tuesday’s events are a sign that Mr. Trump’s policy is succeeding; or, possibly, that there is nothing left of it but desperate measures. A hopeful sign was the immediate and unequivocal backing Mr. Guaidó received from six South American nations, including Venezuela’s four largest neighbors: Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil and Peru. By working closely with these countries, and not by intervening militarily, the Trump administration may increase the chances that Mr. López’s declaration Tuesday — “It’s time to conquer freedom” — proves out. — The Washington Post, April 30

A change in Alaska’s crime laws is needed now A laska V oices A ngie K emp


J ohn N ovak

Many of us are lifelong prosecutors who have spent years in the trenches trying to do the best we can to keep Alaskans safe and seek justice. We work side by side with law enforcement to try to get offenders off the street who are likely to do more harm, get them into treatment and achieve the best outcome under the circumstances to protect the community. The current criminal laws tie our hands, along with the hands of judges, and keep us from achieving these important goals. We thought it’s important to speak out and make sure the perspective of an everyday prosecutor is represented. We may not be able to control all the factors surrounding crime — that is a constant struggle those in the criminal justice system face. But, through our laws, we can control the range of outcomes and incentives available to cut down on the number of individuals who are reoffending — sometimes within just days or weeks. Right now, the laws are not working. Drug offenses are a good example. The U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics followed approximately 400,000 prisoners over nine years throughout 30 different states. The study found that 77% of released drug offenders were rearrested for non-drug-related offenses

within nine years. This just shows that drug use and drug addiction transcend committing drug offenses, and can lead to other serious issues. We have to have the tools to deal with drug crimes comprehensively and nimbly, depending on the circumstances and risk factors. Right now, there is effectively zero jail time for drug possession, which means there is zero incentive for an addict to try to get clean. This has to change. This leads us to the pre-trial risk assessment tool. Although it sounds good on its face, the actual implementation of the risk assessment tool has led to decisions on bail and release being made on less information, not more, and has resulted in the release of individuals who present a significant public safety risk. What we know from experience — and is also born out in the DOJ study — is that there is a subset of offenders who never learn, no matter how many times they are arrested. Judges need to have the flexibility to take all information into account, including prior offenses, and determine what risk an offender poses to the community when determining bail. And prosecutors need to have the tools to incentivize good behavior. This is true of technical violations of conditions of probation and parole as well. Under current law, no matter how many technical probation or parole violations an offender commits, the punishment is generally three to 10 days maximum. This means an offender who commits a technical violation has free reign to commit as many more technical violations as he/she wishes without further consequence

so long as the additional violations occur before the court sanctions the offender for the first one. This provides no incentive to be on good behavior, nor is this a good system of probation or parole. Another item important to highlight is our atrocious track record as a state when it comes to sex offenses, and the current loophole in our law that allows sex offenders from other states to come to Alaska and not register as a sex offender. We have people calling our state and asking if they would have to register if they moved here. If you had to register in another state, you should have to register here in Alaska. We have enough problems with sex offenders as it is, and we shouldn’t be incentivizing sex offenders to move to Alaska. These are just a few of the examples of the improvements to our criminal justice system that are in bills currently moving through the Legislature. We respectfully urge the Legislature to take these bills seriously, and amend our laws to provide the tools and discretion necessary to let prosecutors, troopers, police and judges do their jobs. We do believe these changes will make a difference. Angie Kemp is the Juneau’s district attorney and John Novak is Anchorage’s district attorney.

News and Politics

Trump now says Mueller should not testify before Congress WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller should not testify before Congress, abandoning his previous declaration that he would leave that decision to his attorney general. Escalating tensions with House Democrats as they seek to bring Mueller before the House Judiciary Committee, Trump tweeted: “Bob Mueller should not testify. No redos for the Dems!” Democrats are seeking more information about Mueller’s report on his Russia investigation. Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has said he doesn’t plan to invite Mueller to testify on the report. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office last week that testimony from Mueller was “up to our attorney general.” William Barr has said he has no objection to Mueller testifying. Trump again asserted on Twitter Sunday that Mueller’s report revealed “NO COLLUSION” and argued that there was “NO OBSTRUCTION.” On collusion, Mueller said he

did not assess whether that occurred because it is not a legal term. He looked into a potential criminal conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign and said the investigation did not collect sufficient evidence to establish criminal charges on that front. Mueller didn’t charge Trump with obstruction but wrote that he couldn’t exonerate him, either. Trump did not indicate if he would take any steps to block Mueller, who is a Justice Department employee. The president tweeted Sunday after a Democrat on the committee said he was hopeful Mueller would testify, noting that May 15 has been proposed. Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline told “Fox News Sunday” that “we hope the special counsel will appear” at that time and that “we think the American people have a right to hear directly from him.” Cicilline later tweeted that “nothing has been agreed to yet.” The House Judiciary Committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York, said last week the committee was “firming up the date” for Mueller’s testimony and hoping it would be May 15. Cicilline said on Fox that “obvi-

ously until the date comes, we never have an absolute guarantee” and in his tweet later, said that “we hope the Special Counsel” will agree to the proposed date for his testimony. Spokespeople for the Justice Department and Mueller declined to comment on Cicilline’s remarks and on Trump’s tweet. Democratic lawmakers expressed their displeasure with Trump’s position. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer tweeted, in part: “Now he’s trying to silence Mueller. For a man who constantly proclaims his innocence, realDonaldTrump is acting awfully guilty. Mueller must testify publicly before Congress.” Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, noted in a tweet that Trump’s opposition to Mueller testifying follows his opposition to having a former White House counsel testify. “Barr’s testimony alone — designed to protect Trump — isn’t going to cut it. They will testify. The American people deserve the truth,” said Schiff, who has previously stated that he would like Mueller to appear before his panel.

Venezuelans hold vigil for those killed in street clashes By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA Associated Press

CARACAS, Venezuela — Led by Roman Catholic priests in white robes, several hundred Venezuelans said prayers Sunday at a candle-lit vigil for at least five people killed in street clashes following a failed opposition call for a military uprising. Opposition leader Juan Guaidó was unable to attend because of meetings, a representative told the crowd at the vigil. He did not elaborate, though he noted that some members of the oppositioncontrolled National Assembly were at the memorial service. A few police officers watched from a distance. Some of those who gathered waved Venezuelan flags and chanted “Freedom,” but the mood was muted after the major setback for the opposition in its long campaign to topple President Nicolás Maduro. Venezuelans who want political change must keep protesting in the streets, said David Manrique, a 20-yearold student. “A lot of people have had faith in the political process,

which hasn’t brought results, or at least the results that we want,” he said. The U.S.-backed Guaidó declared himself interim president in January, saying Maduro’s reelection last year was rigged and one in a series of increasingly authoritarian steps since he replaced the late Hugo Chávez in 2013 as president. Venezuela,

meanwhile, has been in sharp decline for years, suffering from hyperinflation and shortages of food and medicine that the opposition blames on state corruption and mismanagement by the socialist administration. For his part, Maduro says U.S. sanctions aimed at forcing him from power are tak-

ing a toll on the economy, and his government has accused Guaidó of fomenting violence when he appealed to the military last week to switch sides to the opposition. The armed forces did not heed the call, and those killed in ensuing clashes between police and protesters on Tuesday and Wednesday included two teenage boys.

in response to “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings.” He didn’t provide details, but said the U.S. wants to send a message that “unrelenting force” will meet any attack on U.S. interests or those of its allies. “The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forc-

es,” he said. The Pentagon had no immediate comment on the Bolton statement. The Abraham Lincoln and its strike group of ships and combat aircraft have been operating in the Mediterranean Sea recently. Last Wednesday a group of senior Albanian government officials visited aboard the Lincoln as it sailed in the Adriatic. Bolton’s reference to the Central Command area would

mean the Lincoln is headed east to the Red Sea and perhaps then to the Arabian Sea or the Persian Gulf. The U.S. Navy currently has no aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf. Bolton’s mention of deploying a bomber task force suggests the Pentagon is deploying land-based bomber aircraft somewhere in the region, perhaps on the Arabian Peninsula. The Trump administration has been intensifying a pressure campaign against Iran.

At least 40 dead in Russian plane’s landing By JIM HEINTZ Associated Press

MOSCOW — A Russian airliner burst into flames while making an emergency landing at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport Sunday evening, and at least 40 people died, officials said. The Sukhoi SSJ100 operated by national airline Aeroflot had 73 passengers and five crew members on board when it touched down and sped down a runway spewing huge flames and black smoke. Elena Markovskaya, a spokeswoman for Russia’s Investigative Committee, said early Monday that 41 people were killed.

Confirmed deaths 3 at Illinois plant WAUKEGAN, Ill. — Search and recovery personnel found the body of another worker Sunday in the rubble of a northern Illinois silicone factory that exploded and burst into flames two days earlier, bringing the death toll to three employees with one more body believed to be in the debris, a fire official said. Waukegan Fire Marshal Steve Lenzi told a news conference that the body was found as first responders resumed searching in hazardous conditions in the debris from the AB Specialty Silicones plant in Waukegan, about 50 miles north of Chicago. They were searching for the bodies of two of the nine workers who were there when an explosion rocked the building Friday night and left it a shattered skeleton.

Trump taps former border patrol chief as ICE Director

US increases military pressure on Iran WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House said Sunday that the U.S. is deploying military resources to send a message to Iran. White House national security adviser John Bolton said in a statement that the U.S. is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region, an area that includes the Middle East. Bolton said the move was

least two teenagers, according to the Investigative Committee. Video showed desperate passengers leaping out of the

plane onto inflatable evacuation slides and staggering across the airport’s tarmac and grass, some holding luggage.

The airport said in a statement that the plane, which had taken off from Sheremetyevo Airport for the northern city of Murmansk, turned back for unspecified technical reasons and made a hard landing that started the fire. Video broadcast later on Russian television showed flames bursting from the jetliner’s underside as it lands and then bounces. The plane apparently did not have time to jettison fuel before the emergency landing, news reports said. The SSJ100, also known as the Superjet, is a two-engine regional jet put into service in 2011 with considerable fanfare as a signal that Russia’s troubled aerospace industry was on the rise. However, the plane’s reputation was troubled after defects were found in some horizontal stabilizers.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s latest choice to lead U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is a former border patrol chief under the Obama administration who has publicly backed the president’s border wall. Trump tweeted on Sunday that Mark Morgan “will be joining the Trump Administration as the head of our hard working men and women of ICE.” He added: “Mark is a true believer and American Patriot. He will do a great job!” The president tweeted later that Matt Albence will continue to serve as acting director until Morgan’s confirmation by the Senate.

Trump threatens to hike tariffs on $200B of Chinese imports WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump turned up the pressure on China on Sunday, threatening to hike tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. Trump’s comments, delivered on Twitter, came as a Chinese delegation was scheduled to resume talks in Washington on Wednesday aimed at resolving a trade war that has shaken financial markets and cast gloom over the world economy. Trump turned up the heat by saying he would raise import taxes on $200 billion in Chinese products to 25% from 10% on Friday. The Wall Street Journal, citing unidentified sources, said China’s government was considering canceling this week’s talks. Beijing has responded to previous U.S. threats by saying it wouldn’t negotiate under pressure. Stock markets fell on the news. The future for the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 1.5 percent while Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 retreated 0.2 percent. — Associated Press

Ten years ago: After a day of meetings at the White House, President Barack Obama declared he’d received the commitments he wanted from the leaders of Pakistan and Afghanistan to more aggressively fight Taliban and al-Qaida militants. Gov. John Baldacci (bahl-DAH’-chee) signed a bill making Maine the fifth state to legalize same-sex marriage (however, the law was later overturned by a public vote). Five years ago: A federal report said that global warming was rapidly affecting the United States in both visible and invisible ways; shortly after the report came out, President Barack Obama used several television weathermen to call for action to curb carbon pollution before it was too late. The Vatican disclosed that over the past decade, it had defrocked 848 priests who raped or molested children and sanctioned another 2,572 with lesser penalties. Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant won his first NBA MVP award. One year ago: The number of homes destroyed by Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano reached 26, as scientists reported lava spewing more than 200 feet into the air. Lebanon’s Iranian-backed Hezbollah group scored major gains in parliamentary elections, as the main Western-backed faction headed by Prime Minister Saad Hariri lost a third of its seats.

The Padres, who avoided a three-game sweep, started the winning rally with three straight singles off Jansen (2-1), who was trying for his third save in three games. Eric Hosmer hit a leadoff single to left and Manuel Margot and Wil Myers followed with bunt singles to load the bases.

Alexander Steen took a shot from there that was redirected by Jaden Schwartz over the still laid-out goalie in a 4-1 victory to force Game 7 in the second-round Western Conference semifinal series.

The Homer softball team defeated North Pole 11-2 on Saturday to finish in first place at the Rally in the Valley tournament at Redington.

Sons’ visitation will include meeting mom’s live-in beau them to meet “someone special who has made Mom very happy” and you are excited that they will be with you. Suggest to Sean that if he’s not used to relating to kids, he should schedule an appointment with a psychologist who can offer him sug- Abigail Van Buren gestions on what to do. He should also sign up for parenting classes if time permits. Once your boys arrive, schedule plenty of one-on-one time with them. Because of what your almost-ex has told them, it’s important they know they are most important to you, and you did NOT leave them for anyone. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 66-year-old married man with two grown kids. I taught high school for 30 years. A couple of years ago, a young English teacher, “Marci,” was teaching a class in my room, and we became friends. Since then, we have been going out on Fridays after school to have a few beers. We just enjoy each other’s company, but my wife thinks it is weird.

We have been married for 34 years, and most of them have been happy. It doesn’t make sense to me that she thinks I shouldn’t be hanging out with my former co-worker. I have started not telling her Marci will be at the brewery, when in fact she will be. I am recently retired and don’t have many friends other than the people I worked with all those years. Am I being weird or is my spouse? -- CONFUSED IN OHIO DEAR CONFUSED: You are not being weird; you are being dishonest. Your wife isn’t weird, either. She’s feeling threatened because you are “hanging out” with a younger woman. Stop lying and start being honest again. Explain it to your wife the way you did to me -- that you don’t have many friends other than the people you worked with all those years, and you would like to maintain those relationships -- at least until you can find new friends. If you invited her to come along with you, it might allay her fears. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Hints from Heloise

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, May 6, 2019: This year, you experience a new sense of direction in at least one area of your life. A relationship could play into a new beginning, no matter if you are single or attached. If single, you could meet someone who is an eye-opener. Even if you do not commit to this person, this bond could have life significance of some sort. If you are attached, you could experience a significant positive change to your tie this year. You will discover greater trust and happiness. You open up to a new stage within this bond. GEMINI helps you make strong investments, but SAGITTARIUS plays devil’s advocate to your financial ideas. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH Insulate yourself from the financial world and its enticements. Good luck with a project. A conversation about the implications and costs of a particular idea might help you prepare. Tonight: Invite a friend over for dinner. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH The more you hear, the better off you will be. Indulge more and have a good time just sharing one idea after another. You could find out that you don’t have the ironclad business idea you thought you did. Be happy that you discovered this before a major problem ensued. Tonight: Treat yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH You make a strong presentation, but a thought or problem might be grating on your nerves. You might not be sure about the best way to proceed with this irritant. Tonight: Let go of the day and enjoy the night. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH Understand what is working in your favor and what might be a problem. A fight could ensue over nothing with a person who often plays devil’s advocate. Try to avoid a confrontation if possible. Tonight: Vanishing into the night. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Your focus revolves around a meeting and the possibilities. The more you hear, the greater your chance of achieving success. Be open to processing and rethinking certain choices. To-

night: Where the gang is. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH You see the evolution of your status at work. You also grasp the importance of detaching and not taking any comment too seriously. Rethink certain concepts, and you will find that conversation strengthens your odds of success. Tonight: Do some research. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Reach out for someone at a distance who often gives you significant feedback. You sense that you are about to take a big step into the unknown. Creative thoughts emerge when sharing with this person. Tonight: Opt to be a team. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Touch base with a loved one and extend a heartfelt invitation. You might have difficulty expressing what you are feeling. Let the other party show his or her feelings. Tonight: The only answer is yes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might want to defer once more to another person. He or she wants to play a major role in a project and/or your life. You could be delighted by this person’s caring and attention. Tonight: Just do not be alone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH Let others pitch in. You have a lot of ground to cover. Infuse your innate creativity and dynamic understanding into a project. You will want to ease up on your schedule. Ask an associate to help. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Your creativity and imagination surge. You add vigor, and often humor, to any project or activity you get involved in. Others depend on your insight to make a project work. A fun person taps into your ingenuity. Tonight: Make time for play. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You could believe what you are hearing from a family member, yet you might wish you were not clued in. Do not hesitate to express your feelings. How someone reacts has more to do with the other person than you. Tonight: Stay close to home.

No wedded bliss for this location? Dear Readers: Today’s SOUND OFF is about destination weddings: “Dear Heloise: Why have destination weddings become so popular? My niece is getting married in Hawaii, which is thousands of miles from family and friends. Neither the bride nor the groom lives in Hawaii, so it’s not as though they’ve established a life there. Although I’ve received an invitation, I can’t afford to go right now, nor can most of the people invited. Even the girl my niece wanted as her maid of honor said she can’t go since she just started a new job and can’t get the time off. The bride’s parents aren’t happy about it, nor are the groom’s. Am I wrong in thinking a destination wedding is a little selfish?” -- Nancy E., Waterbury, Conn. Nancy, well, it’s inconvenient to get married so far away from family and friends, but couples are entitled to the wedding of their choice. Readers, what do you think about destination weddings? -- Heloise SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795001 San Antonio, TX 78279-5001 Fax: 1-210-HELOISE Email: Heloise@Heloise.com FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Here are some uses for paper towel cores: * Wrap Christmas lights around for storage. * Store extension cords inside. * Hold plastic grocery bags. * Spray-paint silver and give to young kids to use as lightsabers. -- Heloise

DEAR ABBY: I am going through a nasty divorce. My sons, ages 4, 11 and 12, live with my husband, 1,000 miles away. They will be with me for summer vacation. This will be the longest stay they will have with me, and I’m not going to lie -- I am excited and nervous at the same time. My problem is, my children do not know I have been seeing someone, and we live together. How should I break this to them? They didn’t get to meet him during the holidays when we were together. My new beau, “Sean,” thought it would be a bad idea, and I took his advice. I have asked Sean how he feels about this, and he said he loves me very much, but he is scared of my boys. I’m fearful of how my children will react once I introduce them. I am afraid they will want to go back to their father. My soon-to-be-ex-husband said he has told them I left them for a new beau, which is not true. How can I introduce them slowly, and what can I anticipate for a backlash with the children? -- TREADING LIGHTLY IN THE SOUTH DEAR TREADING: Because you and Sean are living together, it’s a little late to introduce Sean “slowly.” Consider calling your older boys and saying that you will want

The final Parents of Seniors meeting will follow the May 13 PTSA meeting at 6 p.m. in the SoHi Staff Lounge. SoHi Graduation is May 22 at 7 p.m. at the Sports Center. SoHi PTSA is excited to announce that the PTSA voted to give out three $500 scholarships this year. PTSA is going to stick with the same application as last year so it should be a smooth process. There is a whole new PTSA board this year and things haven’t quite hit their stride yet. If you need anything from PTSA to get these applications out, please email Maryanne Rogers at mailto: qtpa2t76@gmail.com The after-school tutoring buses will start running on 8/28. There are two buses that leave at 4:15 p.m. You must be on the route list to ride the bus. See Ms. Wear in the library to find out more information and/or get on the bus list.

SoHi Pool Schedule M,W,F: Morning Lap 6:30-7:30 a.m. Sport Calendar — http://www.arbiterlive.com/ Teams?entityId=21192 or http://www.asaa365.com/ There are two ways to order a transcript. Each way serves a different purpose. If you need a transcript sent to a college or NCAA or a similar agency, then you will need to log on to: http:// www.parchment.com to order transcripts to be sent. The request is then forwarded to SoHi. After processing, it then goes through cyberspace — rather than the US mail — to get to its destination, which is much faster! ALL transcripts that are headed for NCAA, colleges, etc. have to be processed this way! FINAL TRANSCRIPTS! A final transcript is one that shows your second semester grades… If you order your transcript when we are IN second semester, you will need to make sure you choose “next grading period” when you go on to Parchment… that way your transcript request will wait until the grades are in at the end of the year before it is sent.
