In the news Man’s death in western Alaska village jail is 3rd in 2 weeks AKIACHAK (AP) — An Alaska man has died while in police custody, the third person to die in a western Alaska community jail in the past two weeks, authorities said. Robert Nick, 54, died in a jail in the village of Akiachak, The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday. Nick was taken into protective custody “due to the level of his intoxication” Friday by a tribal officer in the village of about 600 people on the Kuskokwim River, northeast of Bethel, police said. Alaska State Troopers were notified of Nick’s death Friday evening around 9 p.m. and boated to Akiachak to investigate. State police did not say what Nick is believed to have died from or how long he had been dead when he was found by tribal jail guards. His remains were sent to the state medical examiner’s office in Anchorage, authorities said. Becca White, 24, and Isaiah Parka, 22, died in a blaze April 28 at the village jail in Napakiak, southwest of Bethel. The fire is still under investigation. A guard was severely injured trying to save the two inmates, according to state troopers. White and Parka had been arrested by a village police officer employed by the tribe, troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said. Residents of the Kuskokwim River village tried to fight the fire by pumping river water and using a garden hose to extinguish the flames, authorities said. The deaths in Napakiak were the first in a fire in an Alaska jail for more than 30 years, police said.

Looking for Iliamna’s lake monster By ALEX DeMARBAN Anchorage Daily News

ANCHORAGE — The mysterious animal that people say they see in Iliamna Lake is dark, longer than 15 feet, with a long head and tail and distinct fins. It isn’t a whale or a seal, and it often vanishes quickly. Fishermen have tried hooking it. The Anchorage Daily News once offered $100,000 for proof of its existence. But so far, nobody has photographed the creature some call the Iliamna Lake monster. Palmer resident Bruce Wright, a former marine ecologist with the National Marine Fisheries Service, hopes to solve the riddle once and for all this summer. He plans to sink an underwater video camera to the bottom of the sprawling and sparsely populated Southwest Alaska lake that’s the largest and one of the deepest in the state.

The TV series “River Monsters” featured it in 2010, piquing Wright’s curiosity and sparking his

While someone did scratch racist graffiti in a late 1990s Ford Bronco now owned by a Homer couple, that vandalism turned out to have happened well before an East End Road auto mechanic noticed it April 26 on the car parked at his shop — and even before the couple bought the car. A long time ago, it turns out. In an interview on Tuesday with the Homer News, the Bronco’s owner, Jim Weber, said the graffiti has been on the Bronco since before he bought it 10 years ago from an Alaska State Trooper living in Soldotna. The Homer News contacted Weber after he

People call Iliamna Lake an inland sea. It’s 80 miles long, with a rare population of freshwater harbor seals that scientists

believe moved in from the ocean long ago, and an old legend that something large lives in its 1,000foot depths.

Dissent over chemical classification JUNEAU (AP) — A decision by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation to redefine levels of certain chemicals considered safe in drinking water has caused dissent within the agency. Sally Schlichting, who works in the contaminated sites program, wrote in an internal memo obtained by CoastAlaska that the best way to protect citizens is to not roll back standards. The department’s commissioner, Jason Brune, said Schlichting is entitled to her opinion but doesn’t speak for the department or Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s administration. Brune said the department deferred to the U.S. Environmental Protection

State studies Juneau air quality for possible effects from ships JUNEAU (AP) — State environmental officials have launched the first ambient air quality study in Alaska’s capital in more than a decade to determine if air is being affected by cruise ships or other sources. The state will collect data from 21 monitors installed in late April around downtown Juneau, the Juneau Empire reported. The devices use lasers to measure particulate and report online in near-real time. They will remain in place through October. Monitors measuring sulfur dioxide also were installed but don’t provide information in real time. Anna Breuninger, an environmental specialist for the state Division of

On Thursday, the Alaska Legislature formed a joint working group that will search for ways to improve the state’s Village Public Safety Officers (VPSO) program. Members of both the Alaska House and Alaska Senate will be on the group, and will aim to compile a list of recommendations by Jan. 31, 2020 to result in effective legislation in the 2020 legislative session The VPSO program was created in the 1970s to give rural communities impor-

tant public safety resources. Today, approximately 40 men and women who are employed through the program serve as the first — and often the only — law enforcement presence in many communities. Turnover is high in the program, and rural communities are often left without any law enforcement. The main focus of the Legislature’s work group is finding ways to increase the number of VPSO officers. Sen. Donny Olson and Rep. Chuck Kopp will serve as co-chairs, and See VPSO, page A3

Teenagers killed when pickup plunges off Aleutians Island cliff By DAN JOLING Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — A pickup truck carrying teenagers from an Aleutian Islands city plunged off a cliff, killing two passengers. The pickup was on a mountain road early Thursday afternoon on Unalaska Island and it fell 900 feet to ocean shoreline, the city of Unalaska said in an announcement Friday. The 18-year-old driver, Dustin Ruckman, survived. The crash killed Karly MacDonald, 16, and Kiara Renteria, 17. All three were students at Unalaska High School.

Agency’s Lifetime Health Advisory level for drinking water. He said science on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) is evolving and that the EPA is working on an updated standard for states to follow. “We will be closely monitoring the EPA’s

Ruckman is a high school senior. Renteria also was a senior and McDonald was a junior. Unalaska is the largest city in the Aleutians, the chain of islands that juts west from southwest Alaska. The city is home to Dutch Harbor, the country’s largest fishing port by volume. The port 800 miles southwest of Anchorage is home for much of the Bering Sea fleet and the landing port for Alaska pollock, a fish widely used in mass-produced food products such as fish sticks. Police have not determined the cause of the crash and an investigation

is continuing. Ruckman told police he was driving along a road on Ballyhoo Mountain and lost control of the truck. He told police he was thrown from the truck as it descended the steep terrain. Ruckman told police he climbed back to the road, ran and flagged another driver, who called 911. The crash set off a flurry of activity by emergency responders, who faced a severe challenge in reaching the girls. Police personnel announced they were responding to an “active situation” but gave no indication of the nature of the emergency. Harbor officers ap-

proached the crash scene from the water but found no immediate landing site. Emergency responders on the road faced a steep, rough descent. “Responders searched the ravine at great personal risk from above and below for a long while looking for MacDonald and Renteria before finding their bodies some distance apart where each had been thrown as the truck broke into pieces on its way down the mountain,” the city said. The girls were declared dead at about 5 p.m. but their bodies could not be immediately recovered. A recovery operation was scheduled for Friday.

progress on this issue and the emerging science, and if necessary we will adjust our course,” he said. According to the EPA, certain PFAS can accumulate and remain in the body for long periods. “There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse health outcomes in humans,” according to the EPA. Schlichting, in her memo, said other states

are setting levels for one or more PFAS that are “significantly more stringent” than the EPA’s Lifetime Health Advisory level. The shift won’t affect the thousands of households whose wells have elevated PFAS levels and get alternative water supplies from the state, reports CoastAlaska. But the department plans to use the less-stringent standards in the future

before providing supplemental water. Schlichting is out of the office through Friday. Democratic Rep. Geran Tarr said Schlichting’s memo “tells me that the administration ignored the recommendations of the scientists at their department.” Much of the contamination discovered last year was in wells around Fairbanks, Bristol Bay and Gustavus.

In the Fairbanks North Star Borough, where people burn wood as an alternative to expensive fuel oil, fine particulate is a perennial winter problem. Early numbers in Juneau have not jumped out as remarkable. “They’ve been low for the most part, which is what we expect because we have not had many ships yet,” Breuninger said. Some sensors have

shown short spikes in particulate that would be dangerous if sustained over 24 hours. The brief spikes do not indicate a public health risk, Breuninger said. If the monitors report dangerous levels of air pollution over the summer, Breuninger said, that still may not indicate an actual health risk. The monitors being used are relatively inexpensive at about $250 each and are not certified by the U.S. Environmental

Protection Agency. “With the funding in the state, we just do not have the money to put a (more expensive) monitor out,” Breuninger said. However, they will allow researchers to observe changes over time at different locations. If data collected suggests air pollution in Juneau poses a risk, Breuninger said, the next step would be to secure funding for EPA-certified devices.

read stories about the vandalism and he and his wife commented on the Homer News Facebook page. The Homer News and KBBI Public Radio had earlier reported that Dave Johnson of Dave’s Auto Repair notified Alaska State Troopers on the morning of April 26 that Johnson discovered a message had been scratched on the Bronco driver’s side window about O.J. Simpson, the former NFL player who was found not guilty in the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, in 1995 in Los Angeles. The N-word also had been scratched in a window, but misspelled. Weber said the words had been scratched in the Bronco in relationship to the Simpson story. Simpson was evading the police after being charged with the murder of his wife and Ronald Goldman, and he rode down a Los Angeles freeway in a 1993 white Ford Bronco owned and driven by a friend, Al Cowlings. The slow-speed police chase was broadcast on TV. The Weber’s white Bronco is similar in color, make and model to the Simpson vehicle. Trooper Sgt. Daniel Cox, head of the Anchor Point Post, confirmed Weber’s story. Troopers contacted the Webers after a query from the Homer News. Following up on Weber’s Facebook comments, the News asked troopers if the vandalism had hap-

pened earlier. “We were able to determine the damage to the vehicle happened quite a while ago and not while it was parked there on East End Road,” Cox said on Tuesday. Cox said he could not confirm that Weber bought the Bronco from a Soldotna trooper or if the trooper had reported the vandalism 10 or more years ago. Weber said the Soldotna man pointed out the vandalism when the Webers bought the Bronco. Weber said the scratches are hard to see. “You can only see that when the sunlight hits that just right,” he said. In all the years the Webers have owned the Bronco, no one said anything about the racist graffiti. “If they did, I would have taken it out,” Weber said. It would be expensive to replace the damaged Bronco windows, Weber said. He’s contacted a repair person who thinks the scratches could be buffed out. “It’s been a bizarre scenario,” Johnson said of the vandalism. “My alertness was to call the troopers and let them take care of it.” Cox said because the incident happened 10 years ago, troopers consider the case closed. According to Alaska law, the statute of limitations for criminal mischief is five years, meaning no charges could now be filed even if troopers identified the vandal.

Today in History Today is Monday, May 13, the 133rd day of 2019. There are 232 days left in the year. This is Mother’s Day. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 13, 1981, Pope John Paul II was shot and seriously wounded in St. Peter’s Square by Turkish assailant Mehmet Ali Agca (MEH’-met AH’-lee AH’-juh). On this date: In 1568, forces loyal to Mary, Queen of Scots were defeated by troops under her half-brother and Regent of Scotland, the Earl of Moray, in the Battle of Langside, thwarting Mary’s attempt to regain power almost a year after she was forced to abdicate. In 1607, English colonists arrived by ship at the site of what became the Jamestown settlement in Virginia (the colonists went ashore the next day). In 1917, three shepherd children reported seeing a vision of the Virgin Mary near Fatima, Portugal; it was the first of six such apparitions that the children claimed to have witnessed. In 1918, the first U.S. airmail stamp, costing 24 cents and featuring a picture of a Curtiss JN-4 biplane, was publicly issued. (On some of the stamps, the “Jenny” was printed upside-down, making them collector’s items.) In 1940, in his first speech as British prime minister, Winston Churchill told Parliament, “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.” In 1958, Vice President Richard Nixon and his wife, Pat, were spat upon and their limousine battered by rocks thrown by anti-U.S. demonstrators in Caracas, Venezuela. In 1972, 118 people died after fire broke out at the Sennichi Department Store in Osaka, Japan. In 1973, in tennis’ first so-called “Battle of the Sexes,” Bobby Riggs defeated Margaret Court 6-2, 6-1 in Ramona, California. (Billie Jean King soundly defeated Riggs at the Houston Astrodome in September.) In 1985, a confrontation between Philadelphia authorities and the radical group MOVE ended as police dropped a bomb onto the group’s row house, igniting a fire that killed 11 people and destroyed 61 homes. In 1994, President Bill Clinton nominated federal appeals Judge Stephen G. Breyer to the U.S. Supreme Court to replace retiring Justice Harry A. Blackmun; Breyer went on to win Senate confirmation. In 2002, President George W. Bush announced that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin (POO’-tihn) would sign a treaty to shrink their countries’ nuclear arsenals by two-thirds. In 2004, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld visited the Abu Ghraib (grayb) prison camp in Iraq, where he insisted the Pentagon did not try to cover up abuses there. During a campaign swing in West Virginia, President George W. Bush said he felt “disgraced” by the images of U.S. soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners but told his listeners that actions of a handful of Americans should not sully the nation’s military. Ten years ago: A judge in West Palm Beach sentenced two men to death for the drug-debt slaying of a family of four on the side of a Florida highway, including two young boys who died in their mother’s arms. Atlantis’ astronauts captured the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope for five days of repair work. Pittsburgh’s Adam LaRoche and Florida’s Ross Gload became the first baseball players to have home runs taken away following a video replay review. Five years ago: A mine fire in Soma, Turkey, killed 301 workers. A European court, in an important test of the “right to be forgotten,” ruled that Google had to amend some of its search results at the request of ordinary people when they showed links to outdated, irrelevant information. One year ago: President Donald Trump said he would help the Chinese telecommunications company ZTE get “back into business”; the Commerce Department had earlier moved to block the company from importing American components. Officials in Hawaii called for more evacuations near the Kilauea volcano amid signs of an imminent eruption at the volcano’s summit. (The eruption came four days later.) The body of 69-year-old “Superman” actress Margot Kidder was found by a friend near her Montana home in what was later ruled a suicide from a drug and alcohol overdose. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Buck Taylor is 81. Actor Harvey Keitel is 80. Author Charles Baxter is 72. Actress Zoe Wanamaker is 71. Actor Franklyn Ajaye is 70. Singer Stevie Wonder is 69. Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sihk) is 67. Actress Leslie Winston is 63. Producerwriter Alan Ball is 62. Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman is 58. “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert (kohl-BEHR’) is 55. Rock musician John Richardson (The Gin Blossoms) is 55. Actor Tom Verica is 55. Singer Darius Rucker (Hootie and the Blowfish) is 53. Actress Susan Floyd is 51. Contemporary Christian musician Andy Williams (Casting Crowns) is 47. Actor Brian Geraghty is 44.

NHL defenseman P.K. Subban is 31. Actress Debby Ryan is 26. Thought for Today: “What this country needs is a good five-cent cigar.” -- Thomas R. Marshall, U.S. vice president (1854-1925). (To which American humorist Franklin P. Adams replied, “What this country really needs is a good five-cent nickel.”)

What others say

Warren’s impeachment call merely a pipe dream Make no mistake, Sen. Elizabeth

Warren’s call for impeachment is nothing but a product of poor polling. Since her presidential announcement in early February, she has seen many in the field pass her by and with Joe Biden holding steady at the top spot, she will take any and all measures to catch a tail wind. And so it is that Elizabeth Warren took to the Senate floor Tuesday and declared, “The information that has been given to us in the Mueller Report clearly constitutes adequate information to begin an impeachment proceeding in the House of Representatives. No matter how many times Mitch McConnell or the rest of the Republicans want to wish that away, it’s there in black and white in the report.” Of course, nothing is there in black and white other than the fact that, “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” But that is not enough for Sen. Warren, who managed to keep a straight face on the Senate floor. “This is not a fight I wanted to take on but this is the fight in front of us now,” she said. “This is not about politics, this is about the Constitution of the United States of America. We took an oath not to try to protect Donald Trump. We took an oath to protect and serve the Constitution of the United States of America.” Back on March 25, back when Biden hadn’t entered the race but was still trouncing her by 24 points in the Real Clear Politics average, she told Stephen Colbert that voters she’d talked to didn’t care about the Mueller report, “Because what people are talking about, what they’re asking about, are the things that touch their lives every day.” Now, many weeks later, as the Biden campaign surges ahead, Warren finds herself behind him by more than 30 points in the Real Clear average. Polls in New Hampshire and Massachusetts show her running fourth and third, respectively. That is bad news. And that is why Sen. Warren is throwing around soak-the-rich tax schemes, slavery reparations, college debt forgiveness and now impeachment. It never ends. Unless the polling trends continue, in which case Warren will be relegated to the role with which the voters of Massachusetts entrusted her. That could be a good thing. Her constituents have needs and should not be pushed aside while their senator chases her pipe dreams. — The Boston Herald, May 9

Shorebird migration stories V oices of the P eninsula A aron L ang Following is the latest in a series of articles about birds and birding published in the Homer News, celebrating The Year of the Bird, with authors from Kachemak Bay Birders. They began arriving in Homer nearly a month ago, as early as mid-April. Their arrival came well before our tourist season and went largely unnoticed. They’ve pretty much had the Homer Spit all to themselves. These early visitors appeared in small but ever-growing numbers, beating the tourist rush, as they do every year. It isn’t until early May that most of the town begins to pay attention to our prolific annual visitors, the shorebirds. Their arrival has been celebrated with the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival for the last 27 years. We celebrate their beauty, their numbers, and we celebrate the return of spring in the form of chattering birds filling our skies, beaches and wetlands. With the help of the largest wildlife festival in Alaska, most of us notice their arrival, but how many of us consider what they went through to get here and how important Kachemak Bay is to them? If you’ve been to Hawaii in the winter

you’ve likely seen Pacific golden-plovers on the lawns around the hotels, ball fields, and golf courses. Known in Hawaii as the Kolea, they leave Hawaii each spring to make a direct flight to coastal Alaska. They are motivated by the food-rich tundra of western Alaska, the perfect place to raise hungry chicks. This incredible non-stop flight to our shores takes between three and four days. These plovers are some of the earliest shorebirds to arrive in Homer. Arriving here in late April, they’re eager to refuel on the rich shores of Kachemak Bay. The most numerous shorebird species to pass through Homer, the western sandpiper, is in full force by the first week in May when flocks of several thousand, occasionally tens of thousands, can be seen whirling over Mud Bay and along the Homer Spit. Weighing just under an ounce, these sparrow-sized shorebirds make the trip to Homer from wintering grounds as far away as Panama. Unlike the Pacific golden-plover, western sandpipers need to make a number of stops along the way to survive their dangerous trip. They make the northbound migration over the course of several weeks, stopping to rest and eat at rich coastal wetlands along the way. Kachemak Bay is one such habitat, a critical linkage in the chain of habitats which allows the western sandpiper to cross the globe to its breeding grounds in western Alaska. Every migrant has a story to tell, but few are as awe-inspiring as that of the bar-tailed godwit. While not at all common here, a

few of these stately shorebirds do make it to Homer. When they do, birders celebrate them for their beauty and their rarity. There are, however, other more compelling reasons to admire this world traveler. Without the ability to land on water or even to glide for long periods, these birds make the longest known non-stop flight of any bird. Some bar-tailed godwits wintering in New Zealand depart for their breeding grounds in Alaska via a nonstop flight of nearly 6,000 miles to the shores of the Yellow Sea, an incredible journey that takes about nine-days. After several days of refueling on the mudflats of China and the Korean Peninsula, the godwits continue to their breeding grounds in the Russian Far East and western Alaska. That’s only half of the story. After the breeding season in Alaska, many will then depart for their wintering grounds on an even longer non-stop flight. One tagged individual made the southbound journey from the Avalon Peninsula in western Alaska to New Zealand, a nonstop flight of 7,258 miles! Each tired, feathered individual that lands on our muddy shores represents an incredible journey that has repeated itself for millennia. Every flock is itself a collection of amazing stories that we hope will continue to be told for millennia to come.

4, 2014 catastrophic tailings dam failure at nearby Mt. Polley Mine in the Fraser River. It has me wondering if this is some of the reasons for the low return of salmon to these regions. I am a “no” vote on pebble mine. We should be allowed to vote on this issue. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Gov. Mike Dunleavy for his fight to save our dividends. Thank you!

as saying: “One of the things that Adam Schiff and the other partisans don’t understand is that if you’re accused of a crime by a grand jury and they don’t indict you, the prosecutor doesn’t go all over town saying we thought he did this, we thought he did this, this is all the evidence …” The last time I served on a grand jury, people from several areas of the Kenai Peninsula served with me. Paul’s statement eludes to a grand jury finding. From my perspective, that decision was made by one man, Attorney General Barr, who apparently leans toward protecting the president. One man isn’t a grand jury. I support Mueller testifying in order for Americans to get the whole story behind his investigation and its findings.

Aaron and his wife, Robin, own and operate Wilderness Birding Adventures from their home east of Homer. They lead trips throughout Alaska and believe that Alaska’s best birding is right here in Kachemak Bay.

Letters to the Editor Say ‘no’ to Pebble mine It’s a very delicate balance when it comes down to our fisheries habitat and mining. Please watch this documentary, Xboundary from Salmon Beyond Borders at https://vimeo.com/119170132 and judge for yourselves. It speaks volumes to the inherent damage that can be caused from these operations and how these companies respond to it. Ryan Peterson’s film explores the large-scale open-pit mining boom currently underway in northwest British Columbia, Canada. The size and location of the mines — at the headwaters of major salmon rivers that flow across the border into Alaska — has had Alaskans concerned for years over risks posed to their $2 billion fishing and tourism industries and unique way of life. These concerns were heightened with the Aug.

News and politics

Trump lawyer Giuliani threatens, then abandons, Ukraine trip By JONATHAN LEMIRE Associated Press

NEW YORK — Democrats denounced a plan by President Donald Trump's personal attorney to push Ukraine to open investigations that he hopes could benefit Trump politically, saying it was an overt attempt to recruit foreign help to influence a U.S. election. But lawyer Rudy Giuliani has scrapped plans to visit Ukraine, citing concerns about who he would be dealing with there. Giuliani's plan had seemed poised to create an unprecedented moment — a lawyer for the American president seeking foreign assistance in trying to dam-

age political rivals. To Democrats, it was a blatant evocation of Russia's meddling on behalf of Trump when he defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 "The meeting would have accomplished little and may be in the hands of those who might misrepresent it," Giuliani said Saturday in a statement. Giuliani had said earlier that he would to travel to Kiev in coming days to urge the government to investigate the origins of special counsel Robert Mueller's recently concluded probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, and the involvement of former Vice President Joe Biden's son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch. Joe Biden is the early Democratic

front-runner to challenge Trump in the 2020 election. The Biden campaign has denied that Biden or his son, Hunter, did anything improper. Giuliani said he has concluded that Ukraine's president-elect is being advised by people who were the "very vocal opponents of President Trump and peculiarly vocal supporters of Hillary Clinton." TV star and comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy beat incumbent President Petro Poroshenko in a recent presidential election. Giuliani said he believes that the incoming president is being advised, in particular, by Serhiy Leshchenko, an opposition parliament member who helped uncover the off-the-books payments made to Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

N. Korean cargo ship seized by US arrives in American Samoa By FILI SAGAPOLUTELE Associated Press

MANILA, Philippines — Filipinos have begun voting in midterm elections highlighted by a showdown between President Rodrigo Duterte’s allies who aim to dominate the Senate and an opposition fighting for check and balance under a leader they regard as a looming dictator. Nearly 62 million Filipinos have registered to choose among 43,500 candidates vying for about 18,000 congressional and local posts in Monday’s elections in one of Asia’s most rambunctious democracies. The most crucial race is for 12 seats in the 24-member Senate, which Duterte wants to fill with allies to bolster his legislative agenda that includes the return of the death penalty. Military and police forces are on full alert to respond to any violence, especially in security hotspots, and help prevent cheating amid intense local political rivalries.

the investigation so they will be conducting that. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, the ship will be moved.” But she said the next destination is unknown. “I do know that Justice Department is going to do the investigation as fast as they can,” Wyrick added. She said she didn’t have the exact number of U.S. Coast Guard personnel or people from other federal agencies who have traveled to American Samoa for the investigation.

“We have a marine and safety security team here from Honolulu,” Wyrick said. “We’re conducting random patrols, also conducting inspection of the vessel and the Port of Pago Pago, keep an eye on things such as security breaches or vandalization of the ship itself.” Officials are also making sure the port is protected, she said. “We especially in the Coast Guard, we understand the importance of the port. It’s a lifeline in getting goods to

the islands,” Wyrick said. “So we want to make sure that we’re doing everything we can, to make sure that there’s absolutely no disruption to the flow of commerce coming in and out.” The U.S. government dispatched an inspection team to the ship before it docked in Pago Pago, she said. Wyrick noted there was an inspection conducted before leaving Indonesia and, because the ship has been at sea for three weeks, “it’s subject to the elements.”

UAE says 4 ships targeted by ‘sabotage’ By JON GAMBRELL Associated Press

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The United Arab Emirates said Sunday that four commercial ships off its eastern coast “were subjected to sabotage operations,” just hours after Iranian and Lebanese media outlets aired false reports of explosions at a nearby Emirati port. Emirati officials declined to elaborate on the nature of the sabotage or say who might have been responsible. However, the reported incident comes as the U.S. has

warned ships that “Iran or its proxies” could be targeting maritime traffic in the region, and as America is deploying an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers to the Persian Gulf to counter alleged threats from Tehran. Tensions have risen in the year since President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, restoring American sanctions that have pushed Iran’s economy into crisis. Last week, Iran warned it would begin enriching uranium at higher levels in 60 days

if world powers failed to negotiate new terms for the deal. The statement from the UAE’s Foreign Ministry put the ships near the country’s territorial waters in the Gulf of Oman, east of the port of Fujairah. It said it was investigating the incident “in cooperation with local and international bodies.” It said there were “no injuries or fatalities on board the vessels” and “no spillage of harmful chemicals or fuel.” The U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet, which oversees the region, did not immediately offer comment on the incident. Emirati

officials declined to elaborate while their investigation is ongoing. Earlier Sunday, Lebanon’s pro-Iran satellite channel AlMayadeen, quoting “Gulf sources,” falsely reported that a series of explosions had struck Fujairah’s port. State and semiofficial media in Iran picked up the report from Al-Mayadeen, which later published the names of vessels it claimed were involved in the incident. The Associated Press, after speaking to Emirati officials and local witnesses, found the report about explosions at the port to be unsubstantiated.

Prosecutor: Dogs detected decomposition in missing girl case By JUAN A. LOZANO Associated Press

HOUSTON — Trained dogs detected the scent of human decomposition in the vehicle of a man arrested in connection with the disappearance of a 4-year-old Texas girl, according to a prosecutor. Derion Vence, 26, remained jailed Sunday on a $1 million bond after being arrested a day earlier on a charge of tampering with evidence, specifically a human corpse. His next court appearance is set for Monday. Houston police said investigators have not found Maleah Davis and the investigation is

continuing. Authorities have declined to say whether they believe Vence killed Maleah. But prosecutors said in court documents filed Saturday that Vence could face additional charges, including murder. The investigation began after Vence told police that men in a truck on May 4 had abducted him, Maleah and his 2-year-old son a day earlier, but had freed him and the boy. Vence told investigators he was left in the Houston suburb of Sugar Land and walked to a hospital, where he reported the girl’s abduction. Sugar Land police, who initially interviewed him, said his story kept changing and didn’t

add up. Vence, who had lived with Maleah and her mother, reported that his silver Nissan Altima was taken in the abduction, but surveillance video showed that vehicle was used to drop Vence off at the hospital. Police found the car Thursday. Dogs trained to find cadavers reacted to the trunk of the car, Pat Stayton, a prosecutor with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, said at Vence’s probable cause court hearing Saturday night. Surveillance video from a neighbor showed Vence carrying a large, blue laundry basket with a large trash bag from his

apartment on May 3, Stayton said. Vence returned three minutes later without the basket and later he was seen leaving the apartment with cleaning supplies, including bleach. In the silver Nissan, police found a laundry basket that looked like the one Vence took out of his apartment, Stayton said. “Both of the dogs reacted to the trunk of the silver Nissan that the defendant had driven and that the blue laundry basket was recovered from, indicating that the dogs were responding to the scent of human decomposition in the vehicle,” Stayton said.

PANAMA CITY — A strong earthquake struck a lightly populated area of Panama near its border with Costa Rica on Sunday, causing some wooden porches to collapse and products to shake from store shelves. Panamanian authorities said at least two people had been injured in a village but gave no details. Sigifredo Perez, head of operations for Costa Rica’s National Commission of Emergencies, said no major damage or injuries had been reported in his country. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a 6.1 preliminary magnitude and was centered 4 miles southeast of the town of Plaza de Caisan. The quake occurred at a depth of about 22 miles. Images posted on social media showed simple wooden homes that partially collapsed in rural areas, deep fissures in tightly packed beach sand and entire grocery store shelves that spilled containers of processed food and bottled beverages on the floor. Northern Panama is frequently hit by earthquakes. In 1991, a magnitude 7.4 quake killed 23 people and injured 500. A magnitude 6.7 tremor in 2003 killed two people and damaged hundreds of houses.

No-contest plea in machete attack: ‘He owes me choke ahi’ LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) — A Kauai man who told police he was under the influence of a hallucinogenic when he used a machete to wreak havoc on his former boss’ home because of a fish dispute pleaded no contest. Forrest Broyles pleaded no contest last week to burglary, criminal property damage and terroristic threatening, the Garden Island reported. Prosecutors agreed to drop an attempted murder charge. Broyles told police he was on ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic brew from the Amazon, when he broke into his former boss’ home on Dec. 3 to get his share of fish they caught together, according to a detective’s report. “He owes me choke ahi,” he told police. According to police, Broyles threatened his former boss and wife, “saying that he owed him fish and that he was going to kill him and chop him up.” Broyles started hitting their television with his machete and then “broke out all the windows, the sliding door, broke the living room stand, chairs, the table, kitchen cabinets, the stove and microwave, canoe paddle among other things,” police said. His defense attorney, Melinda Mendes, said Broyles accepted a plea deal with prosecutors because he wanted to take responsibility for what he did. A judge is expected to sentence him to seven years in prison in August.

Florida: Police investigating shooting near Trump resort SUNNY ISLES BEACH, Fla. — Police are investigating a shooting near one of President Donald Trump’s resorts in Florida that apparently involved a dispute outside a rental car facility. Media outlets report the shooting happened Sunday afternoon near the Trump International Beach Resort Miami in Sunny Isles Beach. The president was not there and it did not appear to have a political connection. There were reports of a second and possibly related shooting on a nearby causeway. Media outlets reported that one person died and others were wounded outside a rental car facility near the Trump property. Witnesses told the Miami Herald it was a result of an argument. The Herald also reported the situation apparently has some connection to the Rolling Loud hip-hop festival this weekend at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

2018 Value Award Winner

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa — A North Korean cargo ship seized by the U.S. because of suspicion it was used to violate international sanctions arrived at the capital of this American territory, where it will undergo inspections. The Wise Honest was slowly towed to the port of Pago Pago during a cloudy Saturday morning and docked at the main docking section of the port that afternoon. The trip from Indonesia took about three weeks and American Samoa, in the South Pacific, was chosen because of “its central strategic location,” U.S. Coast Guard public affairs officer Amanda Wyrick said. “We also have a good strong relationship and partnership with the American Samoan government,” Wyrick said. “With that being said, we also already have the resources that are able to ensure the security of the vessel but most importantly the Port of Pago Pago.” Indonesian authorities detained the ship in April 2018. Justice Department officials announced Thursday the U.S. had seized the ship. Asked as to how long the ship will be in the territory, Wyrick said the U.S. Department of Justice is “leading

Raptors bounce 76ers; Blazers oust Nuggets By The Associated Press

TORONTO — Kawhi Leonard bounced, bounced, bounced, bounced the Philadelphia 76ers out of the playoffs. Leonard hit a shot from the corner over Joel Embiid at the buzzer that bounced off the rim four times before falling to give the Toronto Raptors a 92-90 victory over the 76ers on Sunday night in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series. It was the first winning buzzer-beater in a Game 7 in NBA history. “It was great,” Leonard said. “That’s something I never experienced before, Game 7, a game-winning shot. It was a blessing to be able to get to that point and make that shot and feel that moment.” After Philadelphia’s Jimmy Butler tied it with a driving layup with 4.2 seconds left, Toronto used its final timeout to draw up a play for Leonard, who dribbled toward the right corner and launched the high-arching shot. It bounced to the top of the backboard, hit the near side of the rim again, then the other side twice before going through, setting off a

wild celebration as the Raptors advanced to the conference finals for the second time in four seasons. They will open the conference finals Wednesday night at Milwaukee. “It’s tough,” Butler said. “Nobody likes to lose, not that way. Leonard scored 41 points on 16-of-39 shooting. “He was awesome at both ends,” Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. “That’s his uniqueness. Not only can he get you 30 and anywhere upwards from that, but there’s moments when he can just decide you’re not scoring, either.” The Raptors ran a similar play for Leonard during the first round against Orlando. That time, he caught the ball and shot without dribbling. “Remembering that moment, I knew I had some time to try to get some space, rather than just catch and shoot the ball,” Leonard said. “I ended up finding a spot that I like, that I work on. I just knew I had to shoot it high.” Serge Ibaka added 17 points, and Pascal Siakam had 11 points and 11 rebounds for Toronto. Embiid, in tears as he left

Bruins rip Hurricanes By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — With a five-goal, third-period lead and the Bruins still not done scoring, the crowd in the new Boston Garden began a throaty chant of “We want the Cup!” The next time they see their team, the NHL’s championship trophy might be on the line for real. Matt Grzelcyk scored twice — his first career multigoal game — and Tuukka Rask made 21 saves to lead the Bruins to a 6-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday and give Boston a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. Connor Clifton had his first career NHL goal — the 19th Bruins player to score this postseason, tying a franchise record. Jake DeBrusk, David Backes and Danton Heinen also connected, and Torey Krug and Charlie Coyle had three assists apiece. “It does feel contagious,” said Boston coach Bruce Cassidy, whose team won its fifth straight game and needs two more victories to reach the Stanley Cup Final for the third time in nine seasons. “Everybody’s contributing.” The series moves to Carolina for Games 3 and 4 on Tuesday and Thursday nights. The Hurricanes need to win at least one to force a fifth game back in Boston on Saturday night. “Sometimes you’ve got to eat a poop sandwich. It doesn’t taste good and you have to chew on it for a little bit,” Hurricanes captain Justin Williams said. “We’ll have to do it for a couple days and get the taste out of our mouth next game.” The Bruins won 5-2 in Game 1, but the Hurricanes led early in the third period and it was still 3-2 with 4 minutes to play. This one wasn’t ever close. Petr Mrazek stopped just 19 shots, and Boston led 6-0 before Williams and Teuvo Teravainen scored in the last nine minutes to deprive Rask of a seventh career postseason shutout. “The other night wasn’t as bad. We were right in the game,” said Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour, whose team also fell behind 0-2 against the Washington Capitals in the first round before eliminating the defending champions in seven.

McCormick captures 800 at GNAC meet Staff report Peninsula Clarion

Danielle McCormick, a 2015 graduate of Soldotna High School, defended her title in the 800-meter run Saturday at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Monmouth, Oregon. McCormick, a senior at the University of Alaska Anchorage, won the event with a time of 2 minutes, 8.67 seconds, and also placed third in the 1,500 at 4:27.74. UAA finished third at the meet. McCormick claimed one of the five individual titles by Seawolves on the second and final day of the meet.

the court, led the 76ers with 21 points and 11 rebounds. JJ Redick had 17 points, Butler added 16, and Tobias Harris had 15 points and 10 rebounds. Trail Blazers 100, Nuggets 96 DENVER — Damian Lillard’s shots kept banging off the backboard, rattling off the rim, going everywhere but through the hoop. The Portland Trail Blazers are going to the Western Conference Finals anyway because CJ McCollum had his back. McCollum scored 37 points and added a crucial chase-down block in the closing minutes that helped the Blazers beat the Denver Nuggets 100-96 in Game 7 on Sunday to advance to their first conference championship since 2000. They’ll open Tuesday night at Golden State against the two-time defending NBA champion Warriors in a series pitting Portland’s Seth Curry against his big brother, Golden State star Steph Curry. Lillard scored 13 points and made just 3 of 17 shots from the field, but two of them were critical 3-point-

ers in the fourth quarter that put Portland ahead 81-76 and 92-85. “It’s a luxury to have two guys like that who can find different ways to score in different ways,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. “CJ does it one way, Dame does it in another. On a

night when Dame struggled shooting the ball CJ came up big.” “CJ McCollum showed why they have one of the best backcourts in the NBA,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “He put his team on his back and made big play after big

play.” None bigger than when his crucial chase-down block with 4:44 left and the Trail Blazers leading 87-83. McCollum raced to stop a breakaway layup by Jamal Murray, who had a miserable night shooting, missing 14 of 18 shots.

AS 42.45.110(c)(2) provides in part: “each year, the commission shall adjust the power costs for which power cost equalization may be paid to an electric utility based on the weighted average retail residential rate in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau . . .” The current base amount is 19.02 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh). The Commission proposes to adjust the base amount to 19.10¢/kWh. The proposed 19.10¢/kWh base amount is a calculation of the weighted average cost of residential energy sales within Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Juneau during calendar year 2018. The utilities providing service to these areas during 2018 were Chugach Electric Association, Inc. (Chugach); Matanuska Electric Association, Inc. (MEA); and the Municipality of Anchorage d/b/a Municipal Light and Power Department (ML&P) in Anchorage; Golden Valley Electric Association, Inc. (GVEA) in Fairbanks; and Alaska Electric Light and Power Company (AEL&P) in Juneau. The proposed 19.10¢/kWh base amount calculations are as follows:

You may obtain additional information about the calculation of the proposed base amount by contacting Tariff Section Staff at the Commission’s office at 701 West Eighth Avenue, Suite 300, Anchorage, Alaska 99501; phone: (907) 276-6222, or by email at rca.mail@alaska.gov.

Parents of free-loading boy turn blind eye to son’s needs differently. How can we let that boy fall through the cracks? Mind you, he wears name-brand clothes, glasses and shoes, yet his parents do not assist him in the most important aspects of his life. I feel horrible because I don’t think it is our job to provide for him, but I try Abigail Van Buren to teach my kids empathy and responsibility. So how do I justify myself? How do I get my husband to see we can’t continue to be a crutch for these people? Or am I wrong? Help! -- TRYING TO HELP IN THE SOUTH DEAR TRYING TO HELP: Your “houseguest” may have name-brand clothes, glasses and shoes, but from your description, he is being severely neglected by his parents. That they would allow him to live with another family whom they haven’t met is shocking. That they would expect you to foot the bill for all of his needs while they pretend they don’t have a minor child for whom they are responsible is negligence. If he resumes staying with you, INSIST

that he stop acting like a guest and assume the same responsibilities you have assigned to your own children! Your husband should back you up on this. Understand that if the boy is unwilling to do that, the example being set for your children is a very poor one. Frankly, I think child protective services should have been notified about what has been going on a long time ago. DEAR READERS: This is National Women’s Health Week, so I’m offering a “gentle reminder” to make your health a priority. Eat healthy, allow time for exercise, manage your stress levels, get the sleep you need and schedule that appointment to see your doctor or dentist that you’ve been postponing. Take steps to eliminate behaviors that put you at risk -- smoking, texting while driving and not wearing a seatbelt. Your most precious possession is your health, so please take care of it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, May 13, 2019: This year, you advance an important project. You might be surprised by where it lands. If single, enjoy the moment and all the opportunities to meet new people. In the next year, you could meet a foreigner of interest. If you’re attached, you and your partner head in a new direction and create more opportunities. A new addition is a possibility. VIRGO is clear and succinct when speaking with you. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You apparently don’t know how to just hang in there and let the chips fall where they may. Emotions are intense and seem to change quickly. Don’t push too hard to have your way. Watch; observe what happens. Tonight: You feel that you must pitch in and take charge. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Your creativity flourishes. Add many suggestions; you’ll keep experiencing a resurgence of ideas. A friend inspires you to take a leap of faith and get past a problem. You might still have mixed feelings as you watch this person take a risk and encounter a hassle. Tonight: Love the one you’re with. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Speak your mind. Don’t be surprised if you need to reiterate your message in several different ways. You’ll get through. Confusion surrounds a workrelated matter or an issue that involves a parent.

FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Here are a few safety measures for the kitchen: * Always pat dry the foods you plan to fry. Hot grease and water cause splattering, which can be both dangerous and painful. * Never leave cooking food unattended. * Always turn the handle on a pot away from the front of the stove to avoid anyone knocking it off while walking by. * When taking a lid off a pot, always tilt it away from you. * Always keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. -- Heloise WOOD POLISHING Dear Heloise: I have real wood paneling in my new home, but I’m worried about cleaning it. I don’t want a waxy buildup from furniture polish. What do you suggest? -- Vera W., Harwood, Md. Vera, I have a solution that cleans fingerprints, mild dirt and dust off wood paneling, but as always, test on an inconspicuous place first. Mix 1 part white vinegar with 2 parts water. Dip a clean rag in the solution, wring it out to remove excess water and wipe the surface of the wood. Dry and polish with a clean cloth. -- Heloise FOOT MASSAGE Dear Heloise: My job requires that I stand for long periods of time. By the time I get home, my feet are killing me. I take a tennis ball and place it under my foot while I’m seated and roll it back and forth. This is an easy way to give my tired feet a massage. -- Bernadette V., Manchester, N.H.

DEAR ABBY: My 15-year-old son has a friend who stayed with us for five months during football and basketball season because he didn’t have transportation to early-morning practices. In the beginning it was one night, then it eventually became full weeks, full months and so on. We treated him like our own, providing food, washing clothes, giving him snack money. But when I asked him to assist with basic house chores, he would laugh and find ways to not help. It would frustrate me but, not knowing him too well, I let it slide. We have never met his parents, and neither of them reached out to express gratitude for taking care of their kid. They have three other kids, and the pattern seems to be the same -- pawn them off on other people. Thankfully, the athletic season changed, and the boys were in different sports, so we got a break from supporting an extra person in February. My concern is, he is coming around again needing rides to school. I feel it is not my problem. This has led to some heavy discussions with my husband. I feel the boy’s parents or grandparents need to take responsibility for assuring their child makes it to practice, has extra money to purchase snacks and rides to and from school. He sees it

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.

personal quest to find the animal. He was skeptical until two years ago, when a friend who put out baited hooks to catch the creature reported that something very big had shredded his fishing gear. “This could lead to an exciting new discovery,” said Wright, senior scientist with a regional Aleut tribal organization. Residents from lakeside villages say these are no imaginary tales. The observations over the years are often consistent, of huge aquatic creatures, often shark-like in appearance. “It’s just part of life out here,” said Gary Nielsen, owner of the general store in Kokhanok and a longtime fisherman. “A lot of old-timers refuse to travel on the lake because of it.” Two years ago, he and other village residents saw what looked like a group of creatures swimming on the surface for a few seconds. They were about a mile away when he spotted them through bin-

na after a successful first year, and Cothran said he expects an even better round of adventure films. “There’s a wide variety of films about paddling,” Cothran said. “Some celebrate the high levels of adventure, others the resiliency of the human spirit. There are family-oriented films. There’s a whole range of movies that I think will interest every-

oculars. The longest was very large, maybe 65 feet long, he said. Others were slightly smaller. “They were gigantic” but didn’t appear to be whales, he said. “I have no idea what we saw.” There could be plausible explanations for some sightings, said Forrest Bowers, a biologist with the state’s commercial fisheries division. Beluga whales following salmon up the Kvichak River from the Pacific Ocean, he said. Or maybe it’s the seals, appearing extra-large because of visual distortions. Then again, who knows. “It’s a big lake,” he said. “And there are likely things we don’t know about big lakes like that.” Wright believes the animals are large sleeper sharks that can grow 20 feet long and far outlive humans — like their better-studied cousins, Greenland sharks, the planet’s longest-living vertebrate that can remain alive more than 300 years. They’re somehow visiting or living in the freshwater lake. Some believe it’s sturgeon. Those can grow 20 feet long. “There’s definitely

something down there,” and it’s big, said Mark Stigar, a retired colonel and former chief aviation officer for the Alaska Army National Guard until 2003. Stigar, who owns a summer house in Iliamna, offered five years ago to help Wright find the animal — by occasionally fishing for it. Stigar didn’t think he’d find anything unusual. But one day in July 2017, he and his brother-in-law pulled up the heavy-duty, 200-foot longline they’d stretched across the lake bottom after baiting 14 hooks with salmon heads. A big 4-inch, stainlesssteel snap was gone, along with the thick, nylonbraided cord holding the hook. Another metal snap was bent. One nylon cord was “sawed” in two, a second hook missing. “The cord was abraded in two spots,” Stigar said. “It had been cut with animal’s teeth.” A 38-pound anchor set on the lake bottom to hold the longline was dragged some 50 yards, based on GPS measurements when it was dropped into more than 100 feet of water, he said. The line was “tangled into a messy ball.”

He doesn’t believe the damage was the work of the seals — the ones he’s seen are too small — and the line was too deep for a boat to hit it. “At that point, I decided I don’t won’t to catch the thing anymore, because there’s truly something here,” Stigar said. “And if it is a sleeper shark, it may be oldest living creature on the planet.” Sean Brennan, a University of Washington researcher who studies the lake’s seals, said he wouldn’t rule out a “clever, determined” seal as the culprit. They eat salmon and one reportedly weighed nearly 200 pounds. “I don’t know,” he said. “These seals are really strong swimmers, and they definitely have sharp teeth.” In 1959, Sports Afield magazine reported that something had ripped away tackle as a group fished for the animal, snapping a stainless-steel cable “like it was thread” and snatching moose-meat bait. But why haven’t carcasses of odd creatures turned up dead along the lake? Why aren’t there any

known pictures of the animal? In 1980, the Anchorage Daily News offered $100,000 over five months for tangible evidence, and scientific verification, that a creature unknown to science lived in Iliamna. The award would be worth more than $300,000 today. Nobody won. Robbin La Vine, an Anchorage anthropologist, said she and a colleague got a good look at an odd creature in summer 2008 as their water taxi flew low over the lake on a clear, calm day. It looked like a grayish fish maybe 15 feet in length, with a long head, prominent tail and fins on its side, swimming in shallow water. “It was kind of twisting, like stirring up the sandy bottom,” she said. “At first I thought it was two seals twisting, but then I realized it was one animal. It was definitely more fishlike than whale-like.” Tim La Porte, owner of Iliamna Air Taxi, vividly remembers seeing it in July 1977 as he and passengers banked near the lake’s surface. The group spotted something very fish-like for a few seconds, maybe 15 feet long based

on the size of a nearby skiff. “It arched its back and hit the water, which was glassy calm, and this wake radiated out from the great big splash,” he said. “We saw a great, big tail going sideways, back and forth, going down.” “I don’t believe it’s a whale, and it didn’t act like the seals we’ve seen for years, so who knows,” he said. Wright said this June he plans to lower what will be the first deep-water video camera used to find the animal, part of an $8,000 system he purchased. Stigar has volunteered to operate it. Wright says he’ll collect water samples in search of DNA. Scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey have offered to help identify sleeper sharks or other known animals that might be in Iliamna, Wright said. “If we see a new species, that would be pretty fascinating,” Wright said. “And if I find a sleeper shark, that’s worth the effort too. There will be plenty of questions about why they’re there and how do they make a living.”

one. “I’m excited to see the whole (range of) films myself.” Walker said after a great turnout last year, the decision to host the film festival again wasn’t hard to make. “It’s a great way to bring people together at the beginning of the season and get excited for summer,” Walker said. Cothran said the Kenai paddling fest is featuring films from the Paddling Film Festival World Tour — a change from 2018 when

he and Walker brought in films from a different film tour, the National Paddling Film Festival. “We felt the quality of films would be a little bit better,” he said. Since 2006, the World Tour fest has showcased the love and passion for the world of paddling, whether it be the gnashing white-water rapids or relaxed, sauntering rivers around the globe. The list includes films shot in Alaska, Greenland, Nepal and South Africa. The 2019 World Tour

fest includes more than 100 stops across North America, Europe and Australia, as well as the first one ever held in Japan. The only other stop in Alaska was in Fairbanks on Friday. “It’s one of the largest paddling events in the world in terms of number of people,” Cothran said. There will also be a gear swap to benefit the Kenai Watershed Forum. The gear swap is a chance not only for paddlers, but also bikers, skiers and campers alike to drop off unused outdoor equipment or to

pick out new stuff. Gear can be dropped off from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Sports Complex, with the swap taking place from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Food will also be provided by Yo Tacos. Cothran estimated about 80 people showed up for last year’s inaugural showing, when his love for white-water paddling combined with Walker’s ambition to bring the world tour to Soldotna, and hopes that this weekend’s event will pull in 100 or more. Cothran said all proceeds will go towards river con-

servation and to support paddling on the peninsula, noting that some of that support will go to the American Canoe Association, which is looking to start a club chapter on the peninsula. The Kenai River Paddling Film Festival is scheduled for Saturday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance at Peninsula Power Sports, and $15 on the day of the show, and admission includes a free digital subscription to Paddling Magazine.
