In the news Anchorage man and 2 pets die in motor home fire ANCHORAGE — A man and two pets have died in an early morning fire in Alaska that destroyed a motor home. The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday that firefighters found the man and two animals dead inside the motor home in Anchorage. The Anchorage Fire Department responded to 911 reports of the fire at 1:16 a.m. Sunday. The victim was not immediately identified and his body was sent to the State Medical Examiner Office. Officials could not say what type of animals died. A fire official said Sunday that investigators were still trying to determine the fire’s cause, but it “does not appear suspicious.” Officials say that at its peak, 12 area firefighting units worked to put out the blaze. The motor home was parked at Rally Automotive Repair in South Anchorage.

Officials fear tuberculosis spread at religious event BETHEL — Attendees at an Alaska religious meeting may have been exposed to tuberculosis. KYUK-AM reported Friday that a person who was diagnosed with an active case of the disease participated in the New Fire Bethel Ministry revival April 12-14. Alaska Public Health and Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation officials say the person attended all three days of the event in western Alaska. Tuberculosis bacterium, which usually attacks the lungs, can spread easily and symptoms are not obvious, often leaving people unaware they carry it. An official says there were up to a hundred people at the event each day who could have been exposed. An official says Alaska has the highest rate of tuberculosis in the nation, but the state’s strain is not resistant to medication and can be treated and cured. — Associated Press

Lawmakers face deadline, decisions By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU — It’s crunch time for Alaska lawmakers, who face a looming deadline to complete their session and decide some of its thorniest issues. Wednesday will mark the 121st day of the regular session, the constitutional limit, though a 10-day extension is allowable. Lawmakers last month blew past a 90day voter-approved session limit, which wasn’t seen as realistic given Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget hadn’t been released until a month into session and the House didn’t organize until around the same time. Legislative leaders hope to finish by Wednesday but lawmakers must agree on the budget, a dividend amount for residents this year from Alaska’s oil-wealth fund, the Alaska Permanent Fund, and a sprawling crime

bill. “Can we get there?” House Majority Leader Steve Thompson said of the Wednesday target. “It’s going to be hard.”

Senate President Cathy Giessel said Wednesday was a realistic target, “but then maybe I’m overly optimistic.” “These are big deci-

sions that honestly have been put off for a long time,” she said. The last several years have been marked by fights over how to ad-

dress a persistent budget deficit and a strong reliance on savings to fill the gap. Amid a continued drawdown of savings and disagreement over taxes, lawmakers last year began using permanent fund earnings — the fund long used to pay annual dividends to residents — to help pay for government. They also sought to limit what can be withdrawn for government expenses and the dividend. The longstanding formula for calculating the dividend hasn’t been followed the last three years, and some lawmakers say it’s outdated and unsustainable. Others contend that until the law is changed, the calculation should be followed. Paying a full dividend this year would cost $1.9 billion. The Senate version of the budget, which included a full dividend, left a $1.2 billion gap that would need to be filled. See FACE, page A2

NTSB to investigate after deadly plane crash By Rachel D’Oro And Mark Thiessen Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — A team of federal accident investigators is expected to arrive in Alaska on Tuesday to try to piece together what caused a deadly midair collision between two sightseeing planes. Four people were killed after the floatplanes carrying cruise ship tourists collided Monday near the Southeast Alaska town of Ketchikan, the Coast Guard said. Two others were missing, said Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios, a Coast Guard spokesman.

Ten people were taken to a Ketchikan hospital. All patients were in fair or good condition, according to Marty West, a spokeswoman for PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center. Three people who died were among five people aboard the second plane, a single-engine de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver, according to Coast Guard Lt. Brian Dykens. It’s unclear which See CRASH, page A2

Prosecutor to examine Russia probe origins By MICHAEL BALSAMO Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine

if intelligence collection involving the Trump campaign was “lawful and appropriate,” a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Monday. Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney

in Connecticut, to conduct the inquiry, the person said. The person could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity. Durham’s appointment comes about a month after Barr told members of Con-

Kenai man charged with burglary, assault following reports of break-ins By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

A Kenai man has been charged with burglary, theft and assault after allegedly breaking into several businesses, according to two criminal complaints filed at the Kenai Courthouse on May 7. Grayden Mendenhall, 24, of Kenai, is accused of breaking into Carquest, Pot of Gold Pull Tabs and Credit Union 1 in Soldotna, and assault-

ing an employee of the Holiday Gas Station in Soldotna on May 5. Soldotna Police received separate reports of overnight break-ins at the Soldotna businesses, according to the complaint. On May 5, while a Soldotna Police officer was investigating the scene at Carquest, a white Chevy pickup was seen by a State Trooper leaving the parking lot of Carquest. The Soldotna officer found the truck about a mile down

the Sterling Highway at the Holiday Gas Station in Soldotna and found Mendenhall in a physical confrontation with the gas station employee, police reported. Mendenhall had allegedly attempted to steal a Juul e-cigarette and Juul pod kit after his debit card was declined, and the employee tried to stop Mendenhall from leaving with the stolen goods. The police officer subdued Mendenhall See BREAK, page A3

gress he believed “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign in 2016. He later said he didn’t mean anything pejorative and was gathering a team to look into the origins of the special counsel’s investigation.

Barr provided no details about what “spying” may have taken place but appeared to be alluding to a surveillance warrant the FBI obtained on a former Trump associate, Carter Page, and the FBI’s use of See PROBE, page A2

Last man in missing mountain hiking group found safe FAIRBANKS (AP) — A man who became lost on an Alaska mountain trail has been safely located by searchers, authorities said. Logan Holmer, 26, of Missouri, was among four hikers on Far Mountain Trail Thursday who were reported overdue, The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Saturday. Searchers located Holmer in good condition on a ridge around 4 p.m. Saturday, police said. The Far Mountain Trail east of Chena Hot Springs is a short, steep walk of 5 miles

roundtrip and an elevation change of 3,000 feet, according to a travel book cited by the newspaper. Alaska State Troopers, Alaska Wildlife Troopers, Wilderness Search and Rescue, Civil Air Patrol, Alaska State Park Rangers and PAWS search dog teams began searching for Holmer after he was reported missing. The other three hikers in his party returned to the Chena Hot Springs Resort 61 miles east of Fairbanks, but Holmer remained missing until Saturday, police said.

lect intelligence relating to the Trump campaign were lawful and appropriate, is separate from an investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general. The agency’s watchdog is also examining the Russia probe’s origins and Barr has said he expects the watchdog report to be done in May or June. Congressional Republicans have also indicated they intend to examine how the investigation that shadowed Trump’s presidency for nearly two years began and whether there are any legal

concerns. The recently concluded investigation from special counsel Robert Mueller did not find a criminal conspiracy between the campaign and the Kremlin to tip the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Durham is a career prosecutor who was nominated for his post as U.S. attorney in Connecticut by Trump. He has previously investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of CIA videotapes and the Boston FBI office’s relationship with mobsters.

In nominating him, the White House said Durham and other nominees for U.S. attorney jobs share Trump’s vision for “making America safe again.” Durham was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2018. At the time, Connecticut’s two Democratic senators, Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, called Durham a “fierce, fair prosecutor” who knows how to try tough cases. In addition to conducting the inquiry, Durham will continue to serve as the chief federal prosecutor in Connecticut.

woman for the Ketchikan Gateway Borough, the local government, said Monday evening. A spokeswoman for Taquan Air, operator of the Otter, said the company had suspended operations while federal authorities investigate the deadly crash. “We are devastated by today’s incident and our hearts go out to our passengers and their families,” Taquan said in a statement. Cindy Cicchetti, a passenger on the Royal Princess cruise ship told the AP that the ship captain announced that two planes were in an

accident Monday. She said the ship is not leaving as scheduled and there weren’t any details as to how the accident will affect the rest of the trip. The ship left Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 11 and is scheduled to arrive in Anchorage on Saturday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives and the families of those impacted by today’s accident. Princess Cruises is extending its full support to traveling companions of the guests involved,” Princess Cruises said in a statement. The FAA and the Na-

tional Transportation Safety Board are investigating. Weather conditions in the area on Monday included high overcast skies with 9 mph southeast winds. It’s not the first time a major plane crash has occurred near Ketchikan, a popular tourist destination. In June 2015, a pilot and eight passengers died when a de Havilland DHC-3 Otter operated by Promech Air Inc. crashed into mountainous terrain about 24 miles from Ketchikan. The NTSB later determined that pilot error and lack of a formal safety program were behind the crash.

world” his members would support providing residents as large a dividend as possible. “But on the other hand, we also want to protect essential services,” Edgmon said. Tied into this is debate over whether to transfer billions of dollars from fund earnings — which can be spent with a simple majority vote — to the fund’s principal, which has constitutional protections. The earnings reserve was valued at $18.4 billion at the end of March. On Monday, the Senate delayed consideration of legislation that seeks to further roll back a 2016 criminal justice overhaul and address public outcry

over crime. Giessel said the delay was to provide members more time to draft amendments. Whatever passes the Senate will need to go back to the House, where members will have to decide whether to accept it. Dunleavy has supported a full dividend payout but also called for matching spending with revenues. He has not ruled out possible vetoes or calling a special session if he’s unsatisfied with what the Legislature produces. Dunleavy has shown no interest in any new statewide taxes, and lawmakers this year haven’t seriously debated any. He also has raised questions about the constitu-

tionality of school funding that lawmakers last year approved for the upcoming fiscal year. Attorney General Kevin Clarkson, in a formal opinion, argued the appropriation is unconstitutional because it has the effect of binding the governor and is an improper dedication of funds. Legislative leaders have stood behind their actions last year as valid, and Edgmon said they haven’t seen a need to revisit the issue. Dunleavy spokesman Matt Shuckerow said based on Clarkson’s opinion, “the funding is not there,” and Dunleavy could call a special session to try to force the Legislature’s hand.

House Minority Leader Lance Pruitt, who is married to Dunleavy’s communications director, recently said his caucus has agreed that a full dividend this year “is the right direction.” But there are splits in his caucus and others about what the program should look like going forward, and not everyone is on board with a full dividend this year. House Finance Committee co-chair Neal Foster on Friday said a full dividend isn’t sustainable. House Speaker Bryce Edgmon said “in a perfect

What others say

Cool heads must prevail for progress on trade talks The intensifying confrontation

between the United States and China significantly amplifies uncertainties in the future of the global economy. Their trade conflict should be solved by thoroughly and repeatedly having cool-headed talks. U.S. President Donald Trump announced that, effective Friday, punitive tariffs on $200 billion (about 22 trillion) worth of Chinese goods will be raised from 10 percent to 25 percent. Trump seemingly aims to extract further concessions from China at ministerial-level trade negotiations between the two countries that will start Thursday. Optimistic views had recently been spreading in markets that an agreement would be reached soon during bilateral negotiations. The sudden announcement of tariff hikes reversed these views. Investor sentiment has quickly deteriorated and has caused a spontaneous, worldwide decline in stock values. In the United States, the Dow Jones Industrial Average temporarily dropped nearly 650 points on Tuesday. On Wednesday in Tokyo, the Nikkei Stock Average also dove 321 points. The United States and China account for about 40 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP). If their confrontation intensifies with the tariff increase, that would bring an even more serious level of damage to the markets and economic activities. A situation should be avoided in which the trade dispute gets bogged down. In the bilateral ministerial-level trade negotiations, both countries need to make concessions to avoid the raising of punitive tariffs. … Against the background of Trump’s abrupt announcement was apparently the fact that the United States maintained robust growth and stock prices were approaching their highest levels ever. It seems the judgment was that even if a hard-line stance toward China is taken, the negative effect on the United States would be minimal. However, the target of the increase in tariffs includes many goods related to daily life, such as home electrical appliances and furniture. The price increase in imported goods could cool down consumption, a driving force behind U.S. economic growth. It is desirable for the United States to more carefully determine the risks from raising tariffs. Primarily, if the United States wields punitive tariffs, wouldn’t China take a tougher stance and the two countries be further apart on an agreement? Trade issues should be solved not through intimidation but through dialogue based on mutual trust. Of course, China’s response is also indispensable for the negotiations to advance. Frustrations over China’s continuing unfair trade practices and restrictions are mounting not only in the United States, but also in Japan and European countries. The United States is especially dissatisfied over China distorting free competition by providing huge subsidies to its state enterprises. Unless China revises its policy of giving excessively preferential treatment to its industries, it will be difficult to solve the trade dispute. The Chinese economy has just come out of a slump due to the government’s economic stimulus measures. To put an end to its sluggish economic growth, it is becoming important for China to present its own positive reform plans. — The Japan Times, May 9

Judgment Day in Juneau V oices of the

P eninsula R ep . S arah V ance Our Permanent Fund Corporation, which is tasked with growing the permanent fund, has been achieving record growth and is now valued at $64 billion. There is more money in the Earnings Reserve Account today than there has ever been in the history of the permanent fund, roughly $18 billion. Your past PFD half-payments sit in the ERA growing interest for the state. Some politicians might tell you the state simply “cannot afford” to pay a full permanent fund dividend. Can this be true? This legislator says, transfer to the people what the law says belongs to them. Your legislators stand at a crossroad. As we head into the last few days of the 2019 legislative session, lawmakers will be forced to answer critical questions about priorities. Will we ensure education is funded for FY20 or continue to play a pride-

ful game of chicken with the governor? Will we repeal the mistakes of SB 91, or only pretend to be tough on crime? Will we pay out a full PFD, as is required by law, or perpetuate a recession to take more money from the pockets of Alaskans? Make no mistake: decisions made this week will speak volumes about the values of your elected officials. I believe in a full, statutory permanent fund dividend and will continue to fight for this cause. Alaska’s resources are our birthright and the PFD is our inheritance. As shareholders of the state’s wealth, the dividend is the ultimate expression of Alaskan sovereignty. You should have priority over any government funded project. Let us not forget that paying a full, statutory dividend is required by law. This crisis was deliberately manufactured to create an environment where theft appears justified in the eyes of the public. Alaskans have been sold a story that the PFD system is broken and needs fixed — it’s fake news. Our economy continues to crumble while Alaskan families struggle to put bread on the table. More than $72 million was stolen from the economy of my district. How about yours? If there was such a crisis, why

didn’t the Legislature inflation-proof the fund for three years in a row in order to maintain its value? Thirty three bills regarding the PFD are currently moving about the Capitol. Several bills rising to the top include transformative words replacing “shall transfer” to “may appropriate.” With edits like these, the Legislature would have the power to decide if, when, and how much to pay a dividend. Words matter. Intent is everything. Nothing else stimulates the Alaskan economy quite like the PFD. It is critical to the fabric of Alaska’s economy. The original intent of the Fund was to offset a downturn in oil prices. With earnings the Fund has produced, we could have been sowing the dividend into our local communities to curb our state’s four-year economic recession. Instead, for the past three years, we’ve allowed politicians to shrink our dividend check to ensure money is available for their pet projects. The state already gets 75% of the royalties to spend on bloated government. How much is enough? Sarah Vance represents Alaska’s 31st District in the House of Representatives.

Pebble’s draft EIS assessment of health risks lacking A laska V oices C orrina R inella and T obias S chwoerer Just two months ago, Alaskans remembered the 30th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the largest environmental disaster in the state’s history. Most of the reporting then, as now, focused on the toll it took on the environment and how Alaskans responded. Little has been told about the mental distress communities of the Gulf of Alaska experienced. Studies conducted after the oil spill found that people engaged in clean up were more likely to suffer from generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and depression. Similarly, Alaska Natives and commercial fishermen who lost their livelihoods and important cultural resources showed a significant increase and prevalence of psychiatric disorders. Research also showed an increase in reported substance abuse and domestic violence, a decline in social relations, an increase of social conflict, and a perceived decline in overall public health. Apart from the inevitable damage to the natural environment, the Exxon Valdez experience suggests that the spill also contaminated the social environment with wide-ranging mental health consequences. The communities of Bristol Bay today, much like the communities of Prince William Sound before and after the spill, are confronted with uncertainty related to large-scale environmental change. Alaskans’ experience with the oil spill was real. The perceived risk related to largescale mining development is real too. Pebble’s draft Environmental Impact Statement, or EIS, misleads the public by presenting a mining footprint and mine life far smaller and shorter than the

mega-mine necessary to attract investors and move towards development. The potential for an ever-expanding mine footprint — and the potential for development of nearby claims made feasible by Pebble’s infrastructure — create uncertainty and stress about the extent to which mining will transform the Bristol Bay landscape and the lives of its residents. Even if there is never a miningrelated environmental disaster, the mere possibility of events like a catastrophic tailings dam failure, coupled with the degradation of an ecosystem that has fed residents for eons, will alter how many Bristol Bay residents experience the health of their region, people and culture. Pebble’s draft EIS grossly understates and inadequately assesses such health risks and fails to analyze the types and levels of distress that inevitably accompany a socially and environmentally disruptive mega-project. For projects like Pebble Mine, the lead federal agency often requests a health impact assessment, or HIA, along with the EIS during the permitting process. An HIA analyzes an array of data sources and stakeholder input to characterize likely health impacts and predict how those impacts will be distributed within the population. More importantly, it provides recommendations for monitoring and managing those effects once the project moves forward. The Army Corps of Engineers is responsible for the HIA, which is conducted by a contractor in collaboration with the Alaska Department of Health and Human Services, while the Alaska Department of Natural Resources is ultimately responsible for releasing the HIA to the public. While not required by law, the Army Corps of Engineers has not asked for an HIA as part of the Pebble Mine draft EIS. While the draft EIS claims to include the components of an HIA, it does little more than list categories of potential health and safety risks and catalog baseline demographic information. It’s surprising that a permitting agency would not elect to assess and mitigate the health impacts associated with a mega-

project like the proposed Pebble Mine, especially considering that HIAs were conducted for smaller proposed projects like Chuitna Coal, Wishbone Hill Coal, and Donlin Gold mines. Pebble Mine’s draft EIS leaves out risks that are not “easily measurable.” Will Pebble Mine leave copper, gold and molybdenum in the ground, that’s not easily measurable? We ask the Army Corps of Engineers to facilitate an HIA that considers a full buildout of the Pebble project and all foreseeable cumulative impacts. We also ask the Alaska Department of Natural Resources — as a general rule — to release all Health Impact Assessments to the public. Alaskans deserve a rigorous assessment of risks to their physical and mental health. Alaskans also deserve transparent governance that allows the public to know and understand these risks before permits are issued. Alaskans have been here before. Double-hull tankers were mandated as a spillprevention measure only after the Exxon Valdez cracked open on Bligh Reef and spilled 11 million gallons of crude into Prince William Sound. On the recent anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, U.S. Sens. Murkowski and Sullivan introduced a resolution in the U.S. Senate stating: “The Exxon Valdez must be a constant reminder that, in our pursuit of developing Alaska’s abundant, world-class natural resources, our state and federal government must always have responsible safeguards in place to protect our people and the pristine lands and waters we all cherish.” In the case of Pebble Mine, let’s remind our senators to base decisions on whether and how to proceed on a rigorous airing of all the potential impacts — to both the environment and human health. And this time, let’s do it before the oil is spilled. Corrina Rinella is a mental health professional specializing in treating trauma and substance abuse patients. Tobias Schwoerer is a natural resource economist specializing in sustainability and resource management. Both have lived and worked in Alaska for nearly 20 years.

Nation/World China retaliates on tariffs, stock markets slide BEIJING — Sending Wall Street into a slide, China announced higher tariffs Monday on $60 billion worth of American goods in retaliation for President Donald Trump’s latest penalties on Chinese products. Chinese duties of 5% to 25% will take effect on June 1 on about 5,200 American products, including batteries, spinach and coffee, the Finance Ministry said. With investors worried about the potential economic damage on all sides from the escalating trade war, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 617 points, or 2.4%, and the technology-heavy Nasdaq plunged 270 points, or 3.4%, in its biggest drop of the year. Earlier, stocks fell in Europe and Asia. “Right now, we appear to be in a slow-motion train wreck, with both sides sticking to their positions,” said

William Reinsch, a trade analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a former U.S. trade official. “As is often the case, however, the losers will not be the negotiators or presidents, but the people.” Beijing’s move came after the U.S. raised duties Friday on $200 billion of Chinese imports to 25%, up from 10%. In doing so, American officials accused China of backtracking on commitments it made in earlier negotiations. The same day, trade talks between the two countries broke up without an agreement. On Twitter, Trump warned Xi that China “will be hurt very badly” if it doesn’t agree to a trade deal. Trump tweeted that Beijing “had a great deal, almost completed, & you backed out!” The rising trade hostilities could damage the economies of both countries. The tariff increases already in place have disrupted trade

in such American products as soybeans and medical equipment and sent shockwaves through other Asian economies that supply Chinese factories. Still, the two countries have given themselves something of an escape hatch: The higher Chinese tariffs don’t kick in for 2½ weeks. The U.S. increases apply to Chinese goods shipped since Friday, and those shipments will take about three weeks to arrive at U.S. seaports and be-

come subject to the higher charges. Also, both countries have indicated more talks are likely. Top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Sunday that China has invited U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to Beijing. But nothing has been scheduled. And Trump said Monday that he expects to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping in late June at the G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

Albania protesters hurl flaming objects after calls for calm By LLAZAR SEMINI Associated Press

TIRANA, Albania — Anti-government protesters in Albania hurled gasoline grenades and flares at riot police in front of the main government building and national police headquarters Monday, hours after U.S. diplomats and European Union lawmakers appealed for order and calm. Thousands of demonstrators, many holding umbrellas, marched in driving rain that at times mixed with clouds of white smoke from flares. Police officers did not respond. “It is a march of protest against the illegitimate government,” said Lulzim Basha, leader of the main opposition center-right Democratic Party. The march route would pass five locations “sym-

bolizing the institutions captured” by the government, Basha said: the prime minister’s office, the national police headquarters, the parliament building, the Interior Ministry and the Tirana city police department. Opposition supporters marched to each destination as planned, hurling Molotov cocktails, flares, fire-

crackers and other objects, and breaking windows of the police buildings. Police kept a low profile, posting few visible officers in front of the buildings. One police officer was injured at national police headquarters, according to a police statement. Opposition parties have held protests since midFebruary, accusing govern-

ment officials of corruption and of stealing votes in the parliamentary election two years ago. They are demanding an early election and a temporary government put in place to run Albania until then. Opposition lawmakers relinquished their seats in parliament in protest, though many vacancies ultimately were filled by other opposition candidates. The governing Socialists have 74 seats in the 140seat parliament. Protests over the weekend also turned hostile, with opposition supporters showering police officers with firebombs while police responded with tear gas. Injuries were reported on both sides. Socialist Prime Minister Edi Rama denounced the violent behavior of protesters, saying “Albania is damaged.”

Judge orders psych evaluation for Appalachian Trail suspect

For the past couple of weeks, hikers along the Appalachian Trial had been warning each other about a hiker who was threatening other hikers with a large knife. The man, who had the trail nickname of “Sovereign,” was arrested in North

Carolina last month after some hikers reported him to authorities. But he was released after pleading guilty to possession of marijuana and other minor charges. Over the weekend, matters turned deadly in southwestern Virginia, where he is accused of stabbing one hiker to death and seriously injuring another. James Jordan, 30, of West Yarmouth, Massachusetts, is charged with murder and assault with intent to commit murder. During his initial appearance Monday in U.S. District Court in Abingdon, Virginia, a judge ordered him to be held in custody and to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. Jordan repeatedly threatened four hikers late Friday and early Saturday before attacking them, according to federal authorities. An FBI agent said in an affidavit filed in court that when Jordan initially ap-

proached the hikers he was acting in a “disturbed and unstable” manner while playing a guitar and singing. Later that night, Jordan began randomly approaching the hikers’ tents, making noises and threatening them. “Jordan spoke to the hikers through their tents, and threatened to pour gasoline on their tents and burn them to death,” FBI Special Agent Micah Childers wrote in the affidavit. Fearing Jordan, all four hikers decided to pack up and leave their campsite. Two of them were chased by Jordan as they tried to leave, but managed to escape by turning off the lights they had strapped to their heads and veering off the trail into the woods, said Sheriff Thomas Roseberry of Bland County, Virginia, whose deputies interviewed the couple after they walked off the trail to

report the incident. “They described this guy as talking crazy and following them down the trail,” he said. The other two hikers also ran to get away from Jordan, but he caught the man first and stabbed him until he collapsed onto the ground, Childers wrote. Jordan then stabbed the woman repeatedly. She fell to the ground and played dead, and Jordan then left to find his dog, Childers wrote. She remained hospitalized Monday. Her condition could not immediately be determined. Authorities did not release the names of the victims. The attacks took place where a 1-mile (1.6-kilometer) length of the trail passes through Wythe County. Jordan was arrested and taken into custody by deputies with the Wythe County Sheriff’s Office.

ATLANTA — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter broke his hip Monday at his south Georgia home when he fell while leaving to go turkey hunting, a spokeswoman for the Carter Center said. Carter was treated in Americus, Georgia, near his home in Plains, and was recovering comfortably after successful surgery, spokeswoman, Deanna Congileo, said in a statement. His wife of 73 years, Rosalynn, was with him, Congileo said. In an indication Carter was in good spirits, Congileo said Carter’s main concern was that he had not reached his limit on turkeys with the shooting season ending this week. “He hopes the State of Georgia will allow him to rollover the unused limit to next year,” the statement said. In March, Carter became the longest-living chief executive in U.S. history, exceeding the lifespan of former President George H.W. Bush, who died Nov. 30 at the age of 94 years, 171 days. The milestone came despite a cancer diagnosis more than three years earlier. Carter disclosed in 2015 that he had melanoma that had spread to his liver and brain. He received treatment for seven months until scans showed no sign of the disease. “I’ve had a wonderful life,” he said at the time he revealed the cancer. “I’ve had thousands of friends, I’ve had an exciting, adventurous and gratifying existence.” Carter’s legacy since leaving office has long overshadowed his rocky White House tenure, where he lost after one term amid a hostage crisis. He and Rosalynn founded the Carter Center in Atlanta in 1982 to focus on global human rights issues. The center has monitored elections around the world and worked to resolve conflicts and eradicate disease, including guinea worm. The former president and first lady still live in Plains, a town of about 750 where they were born, raised and married. A devout Christian, Carter regularly teaches Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church, drawing hundreds of visitors to Plains for each session.

Jury: Monsanto to pay $2 billion in weed killer cancer case OAKLAND, Calif. — A jury on Monday ordered agribusiness giant Monsanto Co. to pay a combined $2.05 billion to a couple claiming that the company’s popular weed killer Roundup Ready caused their cancers. The jury’s verdict is third such courtroom loss for Monsanto in California since August. The state court jury in Oakland concluded that Monsanto’s weed killer caused the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma Alva Pilliod and Alberta Pilliod each contracted. Jurors awarded them each $1 billion in punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages. A federal jury in San Francisco ordered the weed killer maker in March to pay a Sonoma County man $80 million. A San Francisco jury last August awarded $289 million to a former golf course greens keeper who blamed his cancer on Monsanto’s Roundup Ready herbicide. A judge later reduced the award to $89 million. The three California trials were the first of an estimated 13,000 lawsuits pending against Monsanto across the country to go to trial. St. Louis-based Monsanto is owned by the German chemical giant Bayer A.G. Bayer said Monday that it would appeal the verdict. “The verdict in this trial has no impact on future cases and trials, as each one has its own factual and legal circumstances,” the company said. The company noted that none of the California verdicts have been considered by an appeals court and that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency considers the weed killer safe. The EPA reaffirmed its position in April, saying that the active ingredient glyphosate found in the weed killer it posed “no risks of concern” for people exposed to it by any means — on farms, in yards and along roadsides, or as residue left on food crops. The lawsuits have battered Bayer’s stock since it purchased Monsanto for $63 billion last year and Bayer’s top managers are facing shareholders discontent. Chairman Werner Wenning told shareholders at Bayer’s annual general meeting in Bonn last month that company leaders “very much regret” falls in its share price. At the same time, CEO Werner Baumann insisted that “the acquisition of Monsanto was and remains the right move for Bayer.”

Mariners top Kards By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

Without head coach Bill Bell, the Homer softball team didn’t miss a beat. The Mariners topped Kenai Central 19-0 on Monday, invoking the mercy rule after just three innings of Northern Lights Conference play at Steve Shearer Memorial Ball Park in Kenai. With Bell missing, assistant coach Hannah Zook filled in and the Mariners collected 12 hits while holding the Kardinals to none on their senior night. Zook

improved to 1-0 overall as a head coach. Homer improves to 5-2 in the NLC and 16-9 overall, while the Kardinals drop to 1-4 in the league and 1-7 overall. “We hit the ball well,” Zook said. “They pitched well to us, and we were able to hit it.” Lexi Reis got the start for the Kardinals and gave up 11 runs in 1 1-3 innings. Kenai Central coach John Manley said Reis was pitching better as the game went on, but wanted to come out. Kaylee Lauritsen entered See BALL, page A7

Blues take down Sharks, even series at 1 SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — After the San Jose Sharks relied on a usual suspect to tie the game, the St. Louis Blues took back momentum with a tiebreaking goal from a most unlikely source. Defenseman Robert Bortuzzo scored his first career postseason goal late in the second period that helped the Blues overcome another big game from San Jose’s Logan Couture with a 4-2

victory over the Sharks on Monday night that tied the Western Conference final at one game apiece. “It’s not really my game but it’s something that goes in the back of your mind,” said Bortuzzo, who had scored only 14 goals in 365 regular season and playoff games before breaking through against the Sharks. “Jaden (Schwartz) will remember, I told him if I do score a playoff

Cavaliers hire Beilein CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers ended a monthlong search Monday by hiring John Beilein, a 66-year-old offensive mastermind who made Michigan a perennial powerhouse and now takes over a rebuilding project in Cleveland. Beilein got a five-year deal with the Cavs, who believe he can make the successful leap from campus.

goal you’ll like the celebration. You never can plan what you’re going to do. It’s just a rush of emotion. It’s an intense game out there. That’s all it is, emotion coming to the surface.” After the surprising goal, Bortuzzo pumped his fist, let out a yell, and held his arms out wide for the embrace from his appreciative teammates, who needed the momentum back in their favor after Couture

scored twice in a span of less than two minutes to erase a 2-0 deficit for San Jose. Schwartz, Vince Dunn and Oskar Sundqvist also scored and Jordan Binnington made 23 saves to send the Blues home for Game 3 on Wednesday night tied in the series. “Pretty solid game tonight,” Binnington said. “We had a good start, we were disciplined. When they tied

it up, we stayed composed. That’s really important, this time of year especially. We enjoyed the moment and competed hard until the end.” Couture scored his goals in a span of 1:59, giving him an NHLleading 13 this postseason but the Sharks couldn’t get anything else and lost their third straight Game 2 after winning the series opener. Martin Jones made 21 saves.

Ohtani hits 1st home run of season to lead Angels By The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Shohei Ohtani hit his first home run of the season for the Los Angeles Angels, a towering two-run shot in the third inning against Minnesota ace Jose Berrios that fueled a 5-4 victory over the Twins on Monday night. Ohtani, who made his 2019 debut last week in his return from Tommy John elbow surgery, reached base on four of his five plate appearances. His 429-foot drive off the videoboard facade beneath the second deck in left-center field was the highlight of a three-run, five-hit third inning. The AL Rookie of the Year went deep 22 times in 326 at-bats in 2018. Tommy La Stella hit the go-ahead homer against Berrios (6-2) in the sixth, his teamleading 10th long ball of the season in 36 games. Jorge Polanco and Marwin Gonzalez each hit two-run homers off Angels starter Tyler Skaggs (4-3), but the Twins weren’t able to overcome this uncharacteristic vulnerability by their All-Star right-hander. Berrios allowed five runs and a career-high 12 hits in 5 2/3 innings, his shortest start of the year, while walking three. The Angels improved to 5-2 on their current road trip, striking first against a Twins team that took the best record in baseball into the evening.

two-out RBI double in the bottom of the 10th inning and scored the winning run on Omar Narvaez’s single as Seattle rallied past Oakland. Ramon Laureano hit a solo home run with two outs in the top of the 10th, the last of Oakland’s five solo homers, to give the A’s the lead. But Seattle had one rally left, all of it coming with two outs against Joakim Soria (1-3). Daniel Vogelbach and Mitch Haniger homered for Seattle. Khris Davis homered twice and Matt Olson and Mark Canha also hit home runs for Oakland. Athletics starter Mike Fiers and his bid for consecutive no-hitters had long been finished before the crazy 10th inning. He lost his bid for consecutive no-no’s on the fifth pitch of the game when Haniger homered into the second deck of left field.


CHICAGO — Yoán Moncada hit two of Chicago’s four solo homers and Reynaldo López pitched 7 2/3 effective innings in a win over Cleveland. José Abreu and Welington Castillo also connected for Chicago, which earned its third straight win. The White Sox improved to 4-3 against the Indians this season after they went 5-14 against the Tribe last year. López (3-4) allowed one earned run and two hits, struck out six and walked two. It was the right-hander’s first win since he fanned 14 in a 4-1 victory over Detroit on April 28. Francisco Lindor hit his 13th career leadoff homer for Cleveland, which lost for the third time in four games.

Warriors still missing Durant, Cousins OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins won’t necessarily return from injuries in time to play for the Golden State Warriors during the Western Conference Finals against the Portland Trail Blazers. Durant is likely to miss at least the first two games of the best-ofseven series beginning Tuesday night at Oracle Arena. Coach Steve Kerr said after practice Monday a more extensive update on Durant’s status would come Thursday once his calf injury is re-evaluated. Reserve Portland guard Rodney Hood was listed as questionable for Game 1. The team said Monday an MRI exam showed a

Hood, who had to be helped off the court, has contributed key minutes off the bench to help Portland reach its first conference final since 2000. Durant, the two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP leading all postseason scorers, strained his right calf during the third quarter of Game 5 against the Rockets last Wednesday and didn’t travel to Houston for the Warriors’ Game 6 clincher. “Everyone needs to slow down a little bit on the Kevin stuff.

Brown pitched the first two innings and struck out three while walking one. “She did great,” Zook said. “She brought it.” In the bottom of the third, Zook brought in Brianna Hetrick to pitch and other players changed positions.

But I think in doing so people have gotten the idea that he’s going to come back and be Willis Reed or something. He hasn’t even stepped on the floor yet, he still has pain. There’s time ahead of him on the rehab process.” Andrew Bogut started in Durant’s place Friday at Houston.

At this point we’re getting ready for this series without both of them.” Portland was hurt going into the playoffs by the loss of center Jusuf Nurkic to a broken leg during a game against Brooklyn on March 25. The Blazers have turned instead to Enes Kanter, waived by the Knicks shortly after the trade deadline.

NASCAR, IndyCar roar into May


he most prolific month in motorsports arrived with two strong races with IndyCar and NASCAR both opening May with momentumgrabbing entertaining events that should carry the series through their Memorial Day showcases. Simon Pagenaud, his future with Team Penske shaky because of a 21-race losing streak, stalked fivetime IndyCar champion Scott Dixon in the rain around Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the closing laps of its road course race. Then the Frenchman completed a phenomenal late pass to win the Grand Prix and prove he’s fighting hard for his job. Hours later at Kansas Speedway, Brad Keselowski closed out one of the more entertaining NASCAR races of the season with an overtime victory that gave team owner Roger Penske a sweep of the day. More specifically, six different Penske drivers tallied five victories in four series spanning nine days to open May — The Captain’s favorite time of the year. Penske, a 17-time winner of the Indianapolis 500, this year celebrates the 50th anniversary of his first Indy entry. This is a celebratory month for motorsports, a time for series to shine leading into the Sunday before Memorial Day, considered the biggest single day of racing in the world. Formula One will scream through the streets of Monaco early May 26,

year was a de facto test of the new rules package. The race was created as a no-holds-barred Saturday night shootout for a cool $1 million payday and for two decades it delivered. But the luster has worn off — partly because the racing just hasn’t been very good — and Charlotte track president Marcus Smith is considering moving the event to Nashville next season if Speedway Motorsports Inc. can get that property up and running. Smith still believes Saturday night at Charlotte will be a show unlike any other on the NASCAR calendar, and another opportunity for the series to shine during this important month. He’s a huge supporter of NASCAR using the event to test new rules and ideas, as well as opening up research and development to teams in what could be a showcase of the greatest minds in the sport. “You can’t test racing in practice because you’re not actually racing if you’re not racing for money and I think (that R&D element) is an important part from a competition standpoint of the All-Star race,” Smith said. “But from a fan and a driver standpoint, it is very similar to what happens in the NBA with the All-Star Game, or Major League Baseball during its All-Star week — it is a change of pace, a marker in the season that people can kind of let their hair down a little bit, have fun and do something different.”

Kanter has played with a separated left shoulder since the opening round against the Thunder, but performed admirably against the physical challenge of Denver’s Nikola Jokic during the semifinals. Warriors two-time MVP Stephen Curry is still nursing a dislocated middle finger on his left, non-shooting hand, but it has been sore. The finger remained taped for practice Monday. “Definitely better. We’ll see tomorrow, just in terms of you can’t simulate contact and intensity and all that type of stuff,” Curry said. “Definitely better than it felt on Friday.”

Today in History Today is Tuesday, May 14, the 134th day of 2019. There are 231 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 14, 1955, representatives from eight Communist bloc countries, including the Soviet Union, signed the Warsaw Pact in Poland. (The Pact was dissolved in 1991.) On this date: In 1643, Louis XIV became King of France at age 4 upon the death of his father, Louis XIII. In 1796, English physician Edward Jenner inoculated 8-year-old James Phipps against smallpox by using cowpox matter. In 1804, the Lewis and Clark expedition to explore the Louisiana Territory as well as the Pacific Northwest left camp near present-day Hartford, Illinois. In 1925, the Virginia Woolf novel “Mrs Dalloway” was first published in England and the United States. In 1940, the Netherlands surrendered to invading German forces during World War II. In 1948, according to the current-era calendar, the independent state of Israel was proclaimed in Tel Aviv by David Ben-Gurion, who became its first prime minister; U.S. President Harry S. Truman immediately recognized the new nation. In 1961, Freedom Riders were attacked by violent mobs in Anniston and Birmingham, Alabama. In 1968, John Lennon and Paul McCartney held a news conference in New York to announce the creation of the Beatles’ latest business venture, Apple Corps. In 1973, the United States launched Skylab 1, its first manned space station. (Skylab 1 remained in orbit for six years before burning up during re-entry in 1979.) The National Right to Life Committee was incorporated. In 2001, the Supreme Court ruled 8-0 that there is no exception in federal law for people to use marijuana for medical purposes. In 2004, Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper published a front-page apology after photographs supposedly showing British forces abusing Iraqi prisoners turned out to be fakes. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to step in and block gay marriages in Massachusetts. In 2008, the Interior Department declared the polar bear a threatened species because of the loss of Arctic sea ice. Justine Henin (EH’nen), 25, became the first woman to retire from tennis while atop the WTA rankings. Ten years ago: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the CIA of misleading her and other lawmakers about the waterboarding of detainees during the Bush administration, disputing Republican charges that she’d been complicit in its use. Chrysler announced plans to eliminate 789 dealerships as part of its restructuring. A pair of spacewalking astronauts installed a new piano-sized camera in the Hubble Space Telescope. Five years ago: A wildfire erupted in the north San Diego suburb of Carlsbad, destroying eight houses, two businesses and an apartment complex. Canadian-born U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz officially renounced his birth country’s citizenship amid speculation he could make a run at the White House in 2016. One year ago: Israel and the U.S. held a festive inauguration ceremony for the new American Embassy in Jerusalem; just a few miles away, Israeli forces shot and killed nearly 60 Palestinians and wounded hundreds of others during mass protests along the Gaza border that were the culmination of weekly demonstrations aimed at breaking a border blockade. The Supreme Court cleared the way for states coast to coast to legalize betting on sports. Writer Tom Wolfe, who chronicled the space race in “The Right Stuff” before turning his satiric wit to such novels as “The Bonfire of the Vanities,” died in New York at the age of 88. Today’s Birthdays: Photo-realist artist Richard Estes is 87. Actress Dame Sian Phillips is 86. Former Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., is 77. Movie producer George Lucas is 75.

Q, I NEED U! Dear Readers: Have you ever wondered why, in English, for words that contain the letter Q, U is always right next door? Let’s take a look: The sound that these letters together make, a “kwuh” sound (like in “quarter” or “queen”), is called a digraph -- two letters that together make only one sound. Q and U appear only before other vowel sounds, like in “quote,” “quit,” “quaint” or “quilt.” Of course, there are exceptions. The word “qi,” for example. Can you think of other exceptions? -- Heloise BUMPY SUPPORT Dear Heloise: I put puffy stickers on my desk. They ensure that my keyboard and mouse don’t slide, and they are a conversation starter, that’s for sure. -- Katie A. in San Antonio Katie, this is a fun idea. Make sure the stickers don’t leave residue on the desk. -- Heloise APRON AID Dear Heloise: I am recovering from a broken bone in my foot. My pants and tops have no pockets for a phone or tissues. I popped on a perky little kiddie apron with pockets, and now I can maneuver anywhere in the house. -- JoAnn B., Troutman, N.C. THESE BOOTS Dear Heloise: I recently saw in your column some other uses for pool noodles. Here’s one more: I cut pool noodles and insert them in my tall boots to keep them standing upright in the closet. -- Faye S., Florence, Ala.

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, May 14, 2019: This year, you often tap into your creative inner child for answers. At times, you find that you’re overwhelmed with possibilities and offers. Learn to say no more often. Don’t feel as though you must stick to the politically correct action or statement. Be you. If you’re single, many people find you charming when you let go of a need to be critical or fussy. You recognize that behavior as your need to distance yourself. If you’re attached, you and your partner gain; you do so mainly because of your willingness to grow and look at your issues. Travel or a special vacation could play a major role in your year. LIBRA is nearly as alluring as you are but doesn’t have your depth. 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 Give up fussiness; go for easy relating. Although you might experience a hurdle or two, you’ll find that talking and sharing are easier and more fulfilling. You cannot underestimate the implications of different backgrounds and needs. Tonight: Go with a suggestion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH An associate’s or loved one’s optimism is contagious. How you deal with another person could make a big difference in the present as well as the long term. Be sensible. Honor a fast change of pace; you might be surprised by an insight or sudden revelation. Tonight: Make it easy. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Your creativity and gentleness get you far and allow others to give you feedback that might be very important. A change in your budget could be significant. Don’t go overboard when dealing with a problem. Tonight: Kicking up your heels. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Speak your mind; do what’s needed. You might’ve hurt someone’s feelings far more than you realize. Part of this person’s attitude and stance comes from defensiveness. Tonight: A must appearance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You have a better way of stating a problem or issue than many of the people around you do. Should a quarrel en-

DEAR ABBY: I’m getting married in a few months, and with all of the wedding planning, I have realized that in my fiance’s priorities, I come last, as do my opinions and desires. We were supposed to go to a nice restaurant for his birthday, so I made reservations a month in advance. Yesterday (two days before his birthday) his parents decided they wanted to take him out to dinner to celebrate it. He immediately canceled our plans to go to the nice restaurant so he can have dinner with them. I told him it seems like I always come last, and no matter what we plan, if his parents say go, he goes. He said that isn’t true, but it is. Now that I realize I will never come first, I’m having doubts about marrying him. When I told him we should hold off on getting married, he said we are NOT postponing the wedding, and we WILL get married on the date we picked. Although I express my feelings about postponing the wedding almost every day, I get nowhere. Now I feel like I’m being forced to marry someone I’m not sure I want to marry. I’m not in a good emotional state, and I am constantly thinking of suicide. If I’m forced to marry someone I don’t want to, how am I supposed to have a happy and healthy life? -- MIXED UP IN THE MIDWEST DEAR MIXED UP: Because you are hav-

Makers of ‘A Dog’s Journey’ feel vindicated as sequel nears counted the allegations. On Thursday, one of the writers reflected on the allegations at the premiere of the film’s sequel, “A Dog’s Journey.” “Nothing happened,” said Cathryn Michon, a co-screenwriter on both “Purpose” and the followup.
