In the news Homeless camps put Anchorage creek cleanup future in question ANCHORAGE — An Alaska environmental cleanup event is considering whether the safety of its volunteers is being put at risk by homeless encampments, officials said. The Anchorage Waterways Council is considering the effects of the makeshift camps on the annual Creek Cleanup event, The Anchorage Daily News reported Saturday. In the last two years a growing number of homeless camps have created an increasing safety risk. Volunteers, including children, have encountered far more human waste and syringes along their cleanup routes than in the past, according to the council. “It is definitely exploding,” said Executive Director Cherie Northon. The cleanup collects an estimated four to five tons of trash each year from waterways throughout Alaska’s largest city, officials said. The municipality of Anchorage keeps track of homeless camps through an online reporting system. But because the data is not made public there is difficulty in knowing exactly how many camps exist, officials said. The waterways council would consider halting the cleanup program in the future due to potential hazards. “I think people’s safety is above and beyond what happens in the creeks,” Northon said. The council advises volunteers not to approach homeless camps and to give them a wide berth, even if that means not cleaning the creek nearby, Northon said. —Associated Press

Correction The article “Soldotna advocate fights for Alzheimer’s awareness” printed in the Thursday, May 9 edition of the Clarion contained inaccuracies. The golf course which hosts the annual Golf Fore a Cure tournament is the Bird Homestead Golf Course in Funny River. This year will be the fourth year of the golf tournament, and the tournament takes place on June 23. Cindy Harris’ mother passed away in 2010. The Clarion regrets the errors.

House refuses to accept crime bill By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU — The Alaska House refused to accept sweeping legislation aimed at cracking down on crime and passed by the Senate Tuesday, setting the stage for negotiations on the contentious topic with an adjournment deadline looming. On Tuesday, the Senate voted 19-0 to pass the bill, a rewrite of a crime package that previously passed the House. The measure was sent back to the House, which had to decide whether to accept the Senate version. It did not. While some House members cast the Senate version as a response to public out-

School district, employee associations continue contract talks By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Spring Creek riot investigation ongoing The Spring Creek Correctional Facility in Seward is still in cleanup mode after an overnight riot occurred last week. On Tuesday, May 7, 62 inmates in the Hotel Mod housing unit barricaded the entryway to their unit and began damaging everything from security cameras and fire suppressant systems to sinks and toilets. Public Information Officer Sarah Gallagher said that inmates caused an estimated $100,000 in damages. Some initial reports suggested that one correctional officer was inside

In an all-day collective bargaining meeting on Monday, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District rejected one proposal from two employee associations, and is currently analyzing another, a press release from the district said. The associations also rejected a district proposal offered during Monday’s meeting. President of the Kenai Peninsula Education Association, David Brighton, said the negotiations are heading in the right direction. For the last year, contract negotiations between the school district and two employee associations, Kenai Peninsula Education Association and Kenai Peninsula Support Association, which represent non-tenured teachers and support personnel, have snagged on the rising cost of health care. A previous agreement effective through June 2018 remains in use for the employees without contracts. After months of negotiations, district and employee associations could not come to an agreement, so in February, an arbitrator held a hearing to help guide contract negotiations. The school district has offered proposals for each employee association, based on

The Kenai City Council will vote on the 2020 annual budget at their meeting Wednesday night. The budget, which goes into effect July 1, 2019, appropriates over $16 million in general fund spending. The proposed budget includes $500,000 committed to renovations and improvements to city facilities. They have also included a 2% pay increase to the city’s salary schedule, which would go into effect July 1. The resolution to estab-

lish the 2019 mill rate at 4.35 mills is also scheduled for adoption on May 15. Kenai Municipal Code requires that both the budget and mill rate be adopted by June 2019. The council will also decide if the City of Kenai will support the proposed Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly bed tax. The tax would establish a 12% sales tax on temporary lodging and will allow for an exemption in cities that apply a separate temporary lodging tax of an amount equal to the city’s See VOTE page A14

added or changed a large portion of the bill. “Rubberstamping changes of this magnitude is irresponsible,” he said. Kopp, a former police officer, said the vote did not represent rejection of the Senate’s changes but a need for due diligence in an effort to come up with the best bill possible. Department of Law spokeswoman Cori Mills by email said the bill as it passed the Senate would repeal the “most troubling” aspects of the 2016 overhaul, including presumptions for release on bail, while additionally increasing sentences for certain sex offenses, among other things. Mills said the bill would give law enforcement, prosecutors and judges tools “to make decisions that will best protect the safety of the community.” An administration analysis said the bill would increase the number of inmates to a level that exceeds the Department of Corrections’ capacity. The analysis says if those projections are accurate, the department would need to reopen the shuttered Palmer Correctional Center. During Senate debate, some supporters said the bill’s cost, estimated to be in the tens of millions, was worth it. But some lawmakers questioned if the bill

care benefits, which include a high-deductible plan and a traditional plan. Employees pay 10% of the costs for the high-deductible plan, and 15% of the costs for the traditional plan, according to the report. The proposal made by the associations, which is now being analyzed by the district, includes salary recommendations from the arbitrator, and asks the district to migrate employees from the traditional plan to the district’s high-deductible

plan. The traditional plan has more expensive premiums, meaning more money taken out of employee’s paycheck. The high-deductible plan ensures less expensive premiums, but has a higher upfront cost to employees receiving medical care. “If the district terminates the traditional plan, we are willing to agree to the 85% split rather than the current 90/10 split, if they terminate the cap,” Brighton said. “I believe that will lower premiums for employees and

make the cost more affordable for the district.” Brighton said he’s concerned the traditional plan offered by the district will cost employees over $1,000 a month next year. “They can’t afford that,” Brighton said. “We’re willing to accept higher deductibles.” The associations will expect a response from the district on their last proposal at the next collective bargaining meeting at 9 a.m., on Thursday, May 16.

would bring about change and cited challenges with recruiting law enforcement personnel and prosecutors and available treatment. House Minority Leader Lance Pruitt, who is married to Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s communications director, told reporters after the vote that the House could have waited to take up concurrence on the bill if more time was needed to review it. Two coalition members, Democratic Reps. Andy Josephson and Chris Tuck, joined with minority Republicans and GOP Rep. Gabrielle LeDoux, who is without a caucus, in voting to accept the Senate rewrite. Crime has been a major

issue this legislative session. The House’s decision sets the stage for a conference committee, with the constitutional session limit looming on Wednesday. The constitution does permit an extension of 10 days. A special session also could be called. House Speaker Bryce Edgmon said adjourning by Wednesday would be problematic though not impossible. Other issues besides the crime bill include reaching agreement on state spending plans and the size of dividend to pay residents this year from Alaska’s oilwealth fund, the Alaska Permanent Fund. Dunleavy, a Republican,

has sought to take a hard line on crime and left open working on issues such as addressing recidivism and substance abuse later. A statement on Dunleavy’s Twitter account blasted House members who sided against the Senate version of the crime bill as voting “to take it easy on criminals & ignore safety of law abiding citizens. UNBELIEVABLE!” Kopp said he voted for Dunleavy and isn’t intentionally trying to butt heads with him. “But one thing I will never do is, I won’t be bullied and I won’t roll over, and I’m going to stand up for good democracy and good representative government,” he told reporters.

Theo Matthews April 19, 2019

Theo Matthews, long time Cook Inlet commercial salmon fisherman, died in London, UK, on April 19th, 2019. Theo was born in Oakland, California in 1945 and graduated from UC Berkeley in 1967 with a degree in Physics. A sportfishing vacation to the Kenai Peninsula made in the early 1970s turned into a two year job as a mechanic at a salmon processing plant in Clam Gulch, followed by several years of deckhanding on gillnetters and seiners. In 1981 he bought his own boat and a Cook Inlet salmon drift permit and fished every year until poor health forced him to quit in 2010. Following the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in 1989, Theo became the Executive Director of the United Cook Inlet Drift Association (UCIDA). He was Cook Inlet’s representative and liaison with Exxon over the years that followed the oil spill. Over the next ten years, Theo was immersed in the fish politics of Alaska, including a stint as President of the United Fishermen of Alaska (UFA). He was a tireless advocate for commercial fishermen and for the conservation of fish habitats in Cook Inlet and all over Alaska. He was instrumental in the passage of the Federal Oil Pollution Act of 1990 and other legislation concerned with habitat protection, as well as serving on advisory boards and panels related to commercial fisheries issues. In 1999 he and his British wife, Hilary, moved to London but they returned to Kasilof every summer. Although he came up to Alaska in the early 70s as the ultimate laid-back Californian, Theo was galvanised by what Alaska had to offer and found his mission in life as a dedicated fisherman and a staunch supporter of the Alaska commercial fishing industries. Theo embraced everyone he encountered, from cannery workers to Governors, with the same respect, ease and good humor. He is survived by his wife, Hilary Matthews, his sister Pat Daniels of California, nieces, nephews and many friends who will miss his sharp wit and the sound of his laughter. Memorial donations may be made in his name to Cook Inletkeeper.

What others say

Misery and bloodshed in Syria continues Despite a solemn promise made

last fall, Russia and Syria have started a massive bombing campaign against a rebel Syrian province, targeting civilians with barrel bombs, so far displacing an estimated 200,000 people. The United States and world opinion must apply maximum pressure to halt a potential slaughter of innocent people. Last fall, as Russia and Syria planned a major offensive to drive a small number of rebels from Idlib province that was expected to endanger huge numbers of refugees from other war-torn areas of Syria, President Donald Trump spoke up forcefully, saying the two “must not recklessly attack” the civilian areas. He must do so again. The massive attack on Idlib did not materialize due to an agreement between Turkey, which assumed a protective role for the endangered civilians, and Russia to create a demilitarized zone for the roughly 3.5 million civilians, including over a million refugees, living in the province. Following the agreement President Trump claimed credit for stopping the planned assault, apparently because of pressure the United States quietly put on Russia. Now the threat is back. It brings the potential for more human misery and new floods of refugees fleeing Syria for Turkey and Europe. In the recent attacks, Syria is once again using barrel bombs dropped by helicopters and designed to wound and kill civilians. The United Nations Security Council in 2014 specifically condemned the use of these cruel and devastating weapons, and Russia’s ambassador to the U.N. said in 2015 that Syria would no longer use them, a promise that Syria and Russia have ignored. Their use in the Syrian civil war is considered a war crime. Last Friday, reports The Wall Street Journal, Syrian helicopters dropped more than 100 barrel bombs on villages and hospitals in what was ominously described as a prelude to a ground offensive. The independent Syrian Network for Human Rights, which has carefully documented the use of these weapons during the civil war, reported that Russian and Syrian bombardments have killed 441 civilians including 130 children since last September’s ceasefire. The recent bombings, which continued this week, have killed an estimated additional 100 civilians and damaged 10 hospitals. Unfortunately, this might be just the beginning of broader, unconscionable carnage. The attacks appear to signal the end of Russian-Turkish cooperation to preserve a ceasefire in the province. As recently as April 8, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin agreed on a plan for joint Russian-Turkish patrols to prevent attacks by rebel forces in Idlib. “Another significant step taken with Russia is to cooperate against terrorist acts in Syria,” said Erdogan at the time. It turned out to be another broken promise. In a statement issued last week, State Department spokesman Morgan Ortagus said, “We call on all parties, including Russia and the Syrian regime, to abide by their commitments to avoid large-scale military offensives, return to a deescalation of violence in the area, and allow for unhindered humanitarian access to address the humanitarian disaster created by the ongoing violence.” The European Union has also protested. These are fine words, but unless backed by a credible threat of consequences, they are unlikely to have any impact. Meanwhile, other reports say Iran has made preparations to attack U.S. forces in Eastern Syria. Mr. Trump is being tested. To prevent a massive loss of civilian life, the president needs to make it clear to Russia, Syria and Iran that they must back off. — The Post and Courier, May 7

Alaska: Our quality of life is at stake Discussion about the budget continues in the state Capitol and in public forums. Alaskans from every corner of the state are concerned about what proposed deep cuts to close a $1.6 billion budget gap would do to the quality of life we have worked so hard to achieve. We are weighing in on this debate as business owners and executives who regularly interact with Alaska’s great nonprofit institutions. We have something else in common. We are board members of one of Alaska’s oldest, and certainly its largest, philanthropic organization. As Rasmuson Foundation trustees, it is our job to steward more than half a billion dollars generated by gifts from the Rasmuson family for the betterment of Alaska. We are responsible for awarding approximately $30 million in grants annually to address community needs and support the good work of nonprofit organizations, cities, tribes and the State of Alaska, all while managing the Foundation’s assets to grow over time. We are proud of the rigorous level of due diligence we employ both in our grantmaking and our investment management. Rasmuson Foundation’s annual giving represents a quarter of all private philanthropy in Alaska — individual, corporate and foundation. We’ve been doing this for a long time, and we’ve learned a few things we’d like to share. We have heard repeatedly from some supporting billion-plus budget cuts that “the private sector should step up and fill the gap.” This isn’t possible. Total philanthropic giving in Alaska in 2018 added up to approximately $135 million. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to the severe cuts being proposed to our health care, education, transportation, housing and cultural infrastructure. Over time, government has developed an effective and rational way of supporting the services Alaskans expect. Through ongoing financial partnerships between the private sector and state, federal and local govern-

ments, as well as tribes and nonprofits, Alaska has built a world-class library network, a public/private health care system that is copied around the globe, an innovative and dynamic workforce, and a housing system for seniors and people with disabilities that’s not only cost-efficient, but which provides these vulnerable populations with dignity and compassionate care. In every case, appropriated funds from the State of Alaska leverage local revenues, national sources and private funds to achieve greater results. When the 7.1 earthquake struck last fall, 10 private, public and corporate philanthropies immediately came together to provide $690,000 to support more than 50 nonprofits delivering essential services to Alaskans, as government worked its processes to provide long-term aid to families and businesses. Homelessness is a complex issue that affects communities across our state. Past efforts to assist Alaskans without housing have been met with mixed results. In Anchorage, the city and 22 businesses and philanthropic organizations took proactive measures by launching a pilot program called Path to Independence last October. With each partner bringing their unique strengths, expertise and financial resources to the table, 52 adults and children have been housed in units owned by private landlords as of the end of April. Nineteen people have found a job. Private philanthropy provided temporary rental assistance for six months and funded support services for up to one year. As the successful pilot comes to completion, a substantial scaling up of this work is in planning to house and assist more of our fellow Alaskans with getting back on their feet. The combination of public and private resources is at the core of this work. Yet innovative partnerships and philanthropy can only go so far. The $30 million Rasmuson Foundation awards annually is what it costs to op-

erate one tiny piece of the state budget — the Department of Law’s Criminal Division, for one year. More broadly, the total annual philanthropic investment in Alaska of $135 million represents just 8.4% of Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed budget cut — the equivalent of operating the Pioneer Homes and paying for statewide technology services for a year. This brings us to our original point. If philanthropy and private sector partnerships can’t fill the gap, what will happen if the governor’s cuts are passed as proposed? We believe that what’s left of a heavily diminished nonprofit sector will be overwhelmed by increased need. We instead propose what we believe is a responsible way for addressing the deficit: a steadily scaled approach that brings state spending in line with revenue over the next few years, which in turn provides our nonprofits and communities across the state time to adjust to a new financial structure. Philanthropy can work hand-inhand with government but can’t replace it. Alaskans — our neighbors, friends and family members — will be impacted should the cuts advance as proposed. We should be very clear about what’s at stake for our way of life before going in that direction. Rebecca Brice Henderson is owner of Santa’s Travel, a small business in Fairbanks.

News and Politics

Alabama abortion bill passes Senate, heads to governor By KIM CHANDLER Associated Press

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama is close to approving a near total ban on abortion after the state Senate passed a measure that would make performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony. If signed into law, it would be the most stringent abortion restriction in the country. “Our bill says that baby in the womb is a person,” said Republican Rep. Terri Collins, the bill’s sponsor. State senators voted 25-6 for the bill that had overwhelmingly cleared the House of Representatives earlier this month. The legislation now goes to Gov. Kay Ivey, who will decide whether to sign the bill into law.

Ivey has not publically said whether she will sign the bill if it’s approved by lawmakers. “The governor intends to withhold comment until it makes its way to her desk for signature,” deputy press secretary Lori Jhons wrote in an email prior to Tuesday night’s vote. Emboldened by conservative justices who have joined the Supreme Court, abortion opponents in several states are seeking to spark a legal challenge they hope could cause the court to revisit Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide. Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia recently have approved bans on abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can occur in about the sixth week of pregnancy. The Alabama bill, which was ap-

proved by the House of Representatives 74-3 two weeks ago, goes further by seeking to outlaw abortion outright. The bill would make performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison. The only exception would be when the pregnancy endangers the woman’s health. There would be no punishment for the woman receiving the abortion, only for the abortion provider. Critics have promised a swift lawsuit to challenge the abortion ban if enacted, and people on both sides of the debate say they expect lower courts to block the measure from taking effect. “We are already preparing a complaint,” said Randall Marshall, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama.

Man pleads guilty in attack against boy

This undated photo provided by the Bloomington, Minn., Police Department, shows Emmanuel Aranda. (Bloomington Police Department via AP) By JEFF BAENEN Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — A man who reportedly told investigators that he went to the Mall of America “looking for someone to kill” pleaded guilty Tuesday to throwing a 5-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony

and faces 19 years in prison. Emmanuel Aranda, of Minneapolis, pleaded guilty to attempted premeditated first-degree murder in the April 12 attack. The child suffered head trauma and multiple broken bones but survived. Aranda, 24, will be sen-

tenced June 3. His plea deal calls for prosecutors to drop an aggravatedcircumstances component to the charge that could have meant an additional year in prison. Prosecutor Cheri Ann Townsend said the boy’s family supports the deal. Aranda was arrested moments after the attack as he waited to board a lightrail train at the mall, and police say he had quickly admitted to it. A criminal complaint filed soon after the attack said Aranda told police he was angry at being rejected by women at the mall and was “looking for someone to kill” when he went there that day. He had two past convictions for assaults at the mall, both in 2015, and had been banned from the property at one point. Court records showed that Aranda had been ordered to undergo psychological evaluation or treatment after those attacks. His attorney, Paul Sellers, previously said Aranda had been in mental health court in the past. But he said after Tuesday’s hearing that Aranda

was mentally competent enough to proceed in the attempted murder case. “He is competent, clearly. I wouldn’t be able to go forward with the plea if he wasn’t competent,” Sellers said. He added that it was “absolutely, 100 percent” Aranda’s decision to plead guilty. “He went into the courtroom and accepted full responsibility,” Sellers said. Barring “something unbelievably unusual,” Aranda will be out of prison in about 12 years, he said. Aranda spoke quietly during the hearing while giving yes-or-no answers to questions aimed at making sure he understood what he was admitting. The child plunged almost 40 feet and suffered head trauma and multiple broken bones. Authorities have not released the boy’s name and say his family requested privacy. His family released a statement in late April saying the boy was alert and no longer in critical condition. On Monday, the family said he has continued to heal.

Maker of OxyContin gets hit with another state lawsuit By GEOFF MULVIHILL Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — The company that makes OxyContin did not stop pitching the powerful opioid painkiller to doctors even when its sales representatives raised concerns that they were prescribing the drug inappropriately, the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office said in a lawsuit announced Tuesday. The lawsuit against Connecticut-based Purdue Pharma was filed on May 2 under seal and announced on Tuesday. It made Pennsylvania at least the 39th state to sue the company seeking to hold it responsible for the toll of opioids, which have been killing more people in the U.S. and Pennsylvania each year than car crashes. The suit says Purdue drug representatives have made 531,000 detailing calls on doctors in the state since 2007, when the company settled with Pennsylvania and 25 other states agreeing to stop identifying illegal diversion of its OxyContin and to promote it only for federally approved uses. Only California doctors heard from the company more, the state says.

The suit names several doctors whom the state says the company continued to call on to promote opioids despite signs that they were prescribing to addicts or worrying pharmacies with their prescribing levels. The complaint singled out one — Philadelphia doctor Jeffrey Bado — as one of the nation’s biggest prescribers of opioids. The doctor lost his license in 2013 and was convicted in 2016 crimes including causing the death of a patient. The state says the company stopped calling on Bado at points because of concerns over his prescribing practices but kept returning again to promote the drugs.

Purdue said the company denies the allegations. “The complaint is part of a continuing effort to try these cases in the court of public opinion rather than the justice system,” Purdue spokesman Robert Josephson said in a written statement. Attorney General Josh Shapiro did not rule out future legal actions against Purdue sales representatives and executives. He said he decided to sue because the company after two years of serving

as a leader of a multistate investigation into the opioid industry and negotiations with companies on a settlement. “It has become clear that just one company, Purdue Pharma, has not been willing to negotiate in good faith,” he said at a news conference. Josephson disputed that, saying the company is in complicated negotiations with state attorney generals, local governments and others. Around 2,000 local governments, including several in Pennsylvania, along with unions, hospitals and Native American tribes have also sued various industry players including Purdue and other drugmakers, distributors and pharmacies. Purdue, a privately held company based in Stamford, Connecticut, earlier this year publicly threatened bankruptcy as the litigation mounts. Some states have also started suing members of the Sackler family, which includes prominent philanthropists and owns the firm.

Texas officer shoots and kills woman after stun-gun struggle BAYTOWN, Texas — A Texas police officer shot and killed a woman who police say grabbed his Taser and used it on him, moments after she seemed to say “I’m pregnant” in an altercation captured on video. Pamela Turner was shot around 10:40 p.m. Monday at an apartment complex in the Houstonarea community of Baytown, police Lt. Steve Dorris said Tuesday. The department has learned that Turner was not pregnant, said Dorris, who declined to elaborate on how police know that. Autopsy results have not been released. The lieutenant said the officer was patrolling the complex about 25 miles east of Houston and tried to arrest the 44-year-old African American woman because he knew she had outstanding warrants. The officer, who is Hispanic and an 11-year veteran of the department, had previous dealings with Turner, but Dorris did not provide further details about the interactions or Turner’s warrants. The officer has been placed on paid administrative leave, Dorris said. Turner and the officer engaged in a struggle after he sought to arrest her. The officer opened fire after Turner grabbed his Taser and struck him in the groin with it, shocking him, Dorris said. The officer wasn’t seriously hurt, the lieutenant said. In the video, which is circulating on social media, Turner is heard saying “You’re actually harassing me” and “I’m actually walking to my house” before falling to the ground. While on her back, she appears to struggle with the officer, saying “Why? Why?” and then “I’m pregnant.” Turner then appears to reach up towards the officer and, moments later, he fires five shots, killing her. Dorris said Turner was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators are trying to contact whoever recorded the video, because the person was a witness to the shooting, the lieutenant said. “It’s a tragic event for everybody involved,” Dorris said. “Of course, our hearts go out to the family of the deceased as well as our officer.” ­— The Associated Press

Saudi Arabia says its oil pipeline was hit by drones By AYA BATRAWY and JON GAMBRELL Associated Press

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — An oil pipeline that runs across Saudi Arabia was hit Tuesday by drones, the Saudi energy minister said, as regional tensions flared just days after what the kingdom called an attack on two of its oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. While both U.S. President Donald Trump and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said they were not planning for conflict, the volatility was felt in oil markets with benchmark Brent crude trading over $71 a barrel, up more than $1 on the day. The pipeline that runs from the kingdom’s oil-rich Eastern Province to a Red Sea port was shut down, but Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih Al-Falih vowed that the production and ex-

port of Saudi oil would not be interrupted. The Houthis, who are at war with Saudi Arabia, said earlier Tuesday they launched seven drones targeting vital Saudi installations, without elaborating. They later claimed responsibility for the pipeline attack in comments broadcast by Houthi military spokesman Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari. In a statement carried by the state-run Saudi Press Agency, al-Falih called the pipeline attack “cowardly,” saying recent acts of sabotage against the kingdom were targeting not only Saudi Arabia but also the safety of the world’s energy supply and global economy. The attacks demonstrated the increased risks in a region vital to global energy supplies amid heightened tensions following the Trump administration’s withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran

and world powers, and the subsequent re-imposition of U.S. sanctions to cripple the Iranian economy. Iran has since said it would begin enriching uranium at higher levels by July 7 if world powers failed to negotiate new terms for the deal. The Saudis did not immediately assign blame for the drone assaults, which targeted two oil pumping stations west of the capital supplying the pipeline that

runs from the east of Saudi Arabia to the Yanbu Port on its western coast. Still, al-Falih in his statement named Yemeni rebel Houthis as a group that must be internationally confronted and accused them of being backed by Iran, Saudi Arabia’s regional rival. Saudi Arabia has been at war with the Houthis and their allies in Yemen since March 2015, targeting the Iranian-allied rebels with near daily airstrikes.

Poland airs tougher sex abuse penalties amid church crisis The Associated Press

WARSAW, Poland — Poland’s prime minister on Tuesday vowed tougher punishments for those who sexually abuse minors after a new film spurred the country into grappling with the problem of abuse by priests. The documentary “Tell No One” has triggered soul searching in the deeply Catholic country since it was released Saturday on YouTube. It contains harrowing testimony by men and women of being molested and raped by priests. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki held a news conference in Warsaw with Justice Minister Zbigniew

“Every degenerate, disgusting, cruel, bestial crime, especially pedophilia, will be even more stigmatized than it is now,” Morawiecki told reporters. In other fallout from the film, Catholic Church authorities on Tuesday covered up a statue of a priest kneeling before the late Pope John Paul II. According to the documentary, the 91-year-old priest, Rev. Eugeniusz Makulski, allegedly committed child sex abuse. The statue in Lichen, a town in central Poland, depicts Makulski on his knees, holding a model of the church he had built, a giant basilica that was consecrated in 2004 and is now a major pilgrimage site.

CANBERRA, Australia — A powerful earthquake stuck Papua New Guinea late Tuesday evening, triggering a tsunami alert for coastal areas up to 620 miles away. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake measured magnitude 7.5 and was located 28 miles northeast of Kokopo, a remote town with a population of about 26,000. It was centered at a relatively shallow depth of 6 miles, it said. Shallow earthquakes tend to cause more damage on the Earth’s surface, but the USGS estimated that damage and injuries would be low because of the area’s sparse population. The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said tsunami waves of up to 3.3 feet were possible along coastal areas up to 620 miles from the epicenter, including Papua New Guinea and the nearly Solomon Islands. It later said the tsunami threat had largely passed and no waves had been observed, but that there were no sea level gauges in the area for measurement. It said there was no tsunami threat to Hawaii or Guam. Papua New Guinea is located on the eastern half of the island of New Guinea, to the east of Indonesia. It sits on the Pacific’s “Ring of Fire,” the arc of seismic faults around the Pacific Ocean where much of the world’s earthquakes and volcanic activity occurs.

North Korea demands return of cargo ship seized by US

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea on Tuesday called the U.S. seizure of a North Korean cargo ship involved in banned coal exports a “robbery” and demanded that the vessel be returned immediately. The North’s official Korean Central News Agency, or KCNA, carried a statement by an unnamed foreign ministry spokesman who accused the United States of betraying the spirit of a summit agreement last June between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump. Kim and Trump agreed then to a vague statement calling for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula and improved bilateral ties, but a second meeting between the leaders collapsed in February over mismatched demands in sanctions relief and disarmament. The seizure of the cargo ship, which was announced last week, came at a delicate moment in U.S.-North Korean ties, with North Korea resuming weapons tests that seem meant to force the United States to ease sanctions. — The Associated Press

A spicy, smoky Jamaican jerk starts with bold ingredients

‘G rannie ’ A nnie B erg

About the advancement of the telephone I am writing this out of frustration of the advancement of telephone that is supposed to make your life easier! I grew up on a farm that had no telephone until I was about 10 in 1947. The phone was attached to the wall and the phone line went through the wall to a line on the outside to a pole that had telephone wires that ran up and down the side of the road to every neighbor. Each person had a fixed number. We could hear the other neighbor’s phone ring by the amount to rings. Our phone had three rings. Our number was 0213-J3. Grandpa and Grandma’s number was 0213-R2. Dad referred to the phone numbers as 0213-Jingle 3 and Grandpa’s as 0213-Ring 2. I guess that is how he remembered it. Here it is 75 years later and I still remember the numbers! Mom had her choice of colors for her wall phone, black, white or pink. She chose pink. It hung on the wall in the kitchen with painted red ceiling and yellow walls. We could ALWAYS find our phone! It never got lost as it was attached to a curly cord about 6 feet long that you could stretch across the kitchen and still make cookies while talking. There were rules and very strict ones! Five minutes is all you talked, because if you took longer Mom or Dad would come along and push the phone hanger down and cut you off. Then you got the terrible scolding like did something wrong. Mom’s excuse from her: “What if department,” was, what if someone else on the line needed to use it? Well, actually if one of our neighbors needed it they would pick up the phone and say, “Excuse me I need to use the phone.” OR they would quietly listen to what you were saying! When I went to high school we advanced to a “desk phone” all black and big. It had a rotary dial. It sat on the desk in the dinning room. We could sit down and talk but the rules were the same. Sometimes when See ANNIE, page A8

Spicy, smoky Jamaican jerk is one of the world’s great barbecue traditions. Meat (traditionally chicken or pork) is rubbed with an intensely flavoured liquidy paste made from fiery Scotch bonnet chiles, allspice berries, herbs, and spices, and then it is smoked over pimento wood. Our jerk marinade has plenty of bold ingredients, including habanero chiles (in place of the Scotch bonnets), scallions, garlic, lime zest, and mustard for zingy brightness, and brown sugar, nutmeg, and ginger for warm sweetness. It’s potent enough to infuse the chicken in just 30 minutes. We substituted easy-tofind hickory chips for the traditional pimento wood, and we smoked allspice berries, thyme, and rosemary along with the wood chips to give our chicken a great authentic flavour that mimicked pimento’s sweet, herbal smoke.

JERK CHICKEN Servings: 4 Start to finish: 1 hour, 45

minutes Jerk Marinade 1 1/2 tablespoons coriander seeds 1 tablespoon allspice berries 1 tablespoon black peppercorns 1-3 habanero chiles, stemmed, seeded, and quartered 8 scallions, chopped 6 garlic cloves, peeled 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons grated lime zest (3 limes), plus lime wedges for serving 2 tablespoons yellow mustard 1 tablespoon dried thyme 1 tablespoon ground ginger 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar 2 1/4 teaspoons salt 2 teaspoons dried basil 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg Chicken: 3 pounds bone-in chicken pieces (split breasts cut in half crosswise, drumsticks, and/or thighs), trimmed

2 tablespoons allspice berries 2 tablespoons dried thyme 2 tablespoons dried rosemary 2 tablespoons water 1 cup wood chips (preferably hickory), soaked in water for 15 minutes and drained For the jerk marinade: Grind coriander seeds, allspice berries, and peppercorns in spice grinder or mortar and pestle until coarsely ground. Transfer spices to blender jar. Add remaining ingredients and process to smooth paste, 1 to 3 minutes, scraping down sides of blender jar as necessary. Transfer marinade to 1 gallon zipperlock bag. For the chicken: Add chicken pieces to bag with marinade and toss to coat press out air and seal bag. Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes while preparing grill, flipping bag after 15 minutes. (Marinated chicken can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.) Combine allspice berries, thyme, rosemary, and water in bowl and set aside

for 15 minutes, until moistened. Using large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil, wrap soaked chips and moistened allspice mixture in 8-by-4 1/2 inch foil packet. (Make sure chips do not poke holes in sides or bottom of packet.) Cut 2 evenly spaced 2 inch slits in top of packet. — For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent halfway. Arrange 1 quart unlit charcoal briquettes in single layer over half of grill. Light large chimney starter one-third filled with charcoal briquettes (2 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour on top of unlit charcoal, keeping coals arranged over half of grill. Place wood chip packet on coals. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent halfway. Heat grill until hot and wood chips are smoking, about 5 minutes. — For a gas grill: Remove cooking grate and place wood chip packet directly on primary burner. Set grate in place, turn all burners to high, cover, and heat grill until hot and wood chips are smoking,

15 to 25 minutes. Turn primary burner to medium and turn off other burner(s). Clean and oil cooking grate. Place chicken skin side up on cooler side of grill, as far away from fire as possible, with thighs closest to heat and breasts farthest away. Cover (positioning lid vent over chicken if using charcoal) and cook for 30 minutes. Move chicken skin side down to hotter side of grill. Cook until browned and skin renders, 3 to 6 minutes. Using tongs, flip chicken pieces and cook until browned on second side and breasts register 160 F and thighs and drumsticks register 175 F, 5 to 12 minutes. Transfer chicken to serving platter, tent with foil, and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with lime wedges. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 430 calories 214 calories from fat 24 g fat (4 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 160 mg cholesterol 1723 mg sodium 12 g carbohydrate 3 g fiber 4 g sugar 42 g protein.

Easy-breezy: Planning ahead can make your picnic just that By Katie Workman The associated press

As the weather warms up, many of us start thinking about enjoying our meals outdoors. But a seamless, successful picnic takes some planning. Having a checklist and some ideas for what foods work best can keep the easy-breezy notion of a summer picnic just that. Whether you are looking to create a simple alfresco lunch or a more stylish meal, a potluck menu for a group or a romantic repast for two, be prepared. I have learned the hard way that garbage bags and bottle openers don’t just appear in fields.

THE CARRIERS

Anything from a classic picnic basket to a sturdy, flat-bottomed bag to a metal or plastic bin or box. Include some sort of cooler.

THE FOOD Choose simple dishes that require no fussing over

at the picnic. Steer clear of fragile foods, and take items that won’t get soggy, are delicious at room temperature, can stand up to some time in the sun, and can be eaten with your hands or just a fork — it’s hard to cut things on a paper plate balanced on your lap. Usually, picnics don’t have the prescribed flow of a regular indoor meal. It’s quite acceptable and lovely that someone might be munching on a piece of frittata while others are eating cookies. But if you plan on a more leisurely afternoon, you may want to put out some nibbley things to start. Cheese plus bread or crackers are always welcome, supplemented by olives, cornichons, nuts, dried fruit, and condiments like fig jam or chutney. If you make a crostini topping or two, put that out along with some toasted baguette slices brushed with olive oil and let people assemble

their own. Think about a dip and some cut-up vegetables. There are lots of interesting salsas to make or buy to pair with chips. If you are bringing a lettuce salad or anything that can wilt quickly, pack the dressing separately and toss it there. Sturdier grain and vegetables salads can be made and dressed just before leaving (some grain, pasta or potato salads can happily be made up to a couple days ahead of time). Sandwiches are always good, but pack them tightly so they don’t fall apart. Fried chicken, grilled or roasted chicken (so good cold), salads featuring proteins like chicken or tuna, quiches, frittatas — truly, anything you are happy eating at room temperature is fair game. Include at least one vegetarian and one gluten-free option if you think those might be needed. Avoid desserts that need to be cut and plated, like pies and cakes. Go with

pre-cut durable sweets like brownies, bar cookies, drop cookies. Grapes, cherries, cut melon and strawberries are good, packable fruit offerings. As for drinks, bring an assortment in cans or bottles. If you are going to a park, make sure glass bottles and/or alcohol are allowed boxed or canned wine may be your friend, and there are some good ones out there. Maybe pack a thermos or two of iced tea or lemonade. Keep drinks chilled with lots of ice.

DISPOSABLE OR REUSABLE? We are all trying to be greener. And for a smaller group, at least, reusables are often more attractive and eco-friendly. Bring an extra bag for recycling.

MAKE THAT LIST! Here is a sample checklist, to prevent those “did anyone pack the napkins?”

moments: Picnic basket or other portable container Cooler with ice or cold packs Picnic blanket (preferably waterproof in case the ground is damp) Picnic chairs Portable picnic table Plates Cups Utensils (eating and serving) Napkins Paper towels (and maybe wet wipes) Dishtowels (these can be used to anchor dishes in transport, and also for cleanup) Drinks (including plenty of water) Bottle opener and/or corkscrew Cutting board (also useful as a level serving surface, perfect for drinks) Sharp knife Salt, pepper, condiments (leftover ketchup, mustard or mayo packets from take-out can be put

to use!) Suncreen and insect repellent Hats Garbage/recycling bags Flashlight Games and activities: Frisbees, balls, bubbles, water guns, etc. Extra containers or sealable bags for leftovers, utensils, etc.

PACKING YOUR PICNIC Put the heaviest, sturdiest items on the bottom of your container, and the lighter, more delicate items on top. Have your picnic blanket accessible — it’s the first thing you’ll want to unpack. Chill drinks and perishable foods before you pack them. And finally, of course, leave the picnic site the way you found it. Shake those last few crumbs off the blanket, but otherwise nobody need know you were there.

. . . Annie Continued from page A7

Mom or Dad were out of the house, I got to talk a little longer to one of my high school friends or later one of my boyfriends. When I got married I cannot remember what kind of phone or where it was. I was too busy with little kids and a full-time job at the hospital. I do know it sat on a desk or table. I guess the huge advancement in my life was carrying around a big “mobile phone” that hung on your hip! You never lost it as it was too big. In 1967, when we moved to Alaska, North Kenai, now Nikiski, there were no telephones. The only communications was everyone had CB radios. If I wanted to talk to Mom or Dad or family in Colorado I had to go to a pay phone with a handful of quarters and stand in line and wait for the homesick person talking to tell his family “down below” goodbye. I think there was a pay phone at the Hunger Hut — I think? I do know I used one in Kenai at the “old” Carrs Mall, now the Employment Office building. BUT first you had to drive to town, wait for the bank to open to get $20 worth of quarters. Yes, I know at one time for a short while, the phone cost you a handful of nickels or dimes. Or one nickel or one dime to call locally. My first phone in my home in North Kenai was in a trailer house. Jim Goff installed it. The happy-go-lucky, always talkative “telephone man,” my kids called him, because they did not know his real name. We moved to Daniels Lake and he also installed our phone. That is when we found out he and his family had homesteaded the land next to us. Very nice neighbors! Once in a while Jim would bring us a big salmon that he had caught in Swanson River, just up the road from us. I graduated to those big phones on the hip kind for a while. The smaller phones were in stalled in the house on a “land line.” They still hooked up to the telephone lines, strung from post to post. (And at times strung from fence post to fence post). Just a year ago I got rid of our “land phone” as the price of it kept getting higher and higher. From $9 to $12 to $22 for several years. It just kept getting more expensive! We did not use it that much, because we were modernized — we have cellphones! So last year when my phone bill hit $56, I had it disconnected. It was like letting go of an old friend. We had that phone and the number for 32 years! At times I have carried a big cellphone, then a little flip phone — which I lost frequently! The new iPhones and iPads and all the other devices we have to keep us informed and entertained are hooked up to small wires hooked to an electrical outlet to charge. Well, every time you changed phones or lost one — or in my case dunked it in the toilet — you got, along with the purchase of a

new phone, another devise that plugs into an outlet so you can charge it. Why, why don’t they make the plug-ins ALL the same? I am sure I am not the only one who complains about the cords hanging out of extension cords and outlets that look downright awful. I also have a basket full of those little buggers. AND not one fits the phone I have now but only the one I cannot find!! I will say the invention of ringing your phone number by someone else’s phone is very nice when you have lost you own!! Now shall we talk about passwords and all the different ones you have and some you wrote down and some you did not! All the accounts that have password to get online on your computer to pay your bills! I hope everyone is so organized as to have them all written down. I do, in a fashion, but that little book is NOT where I need it at the time!! So, in closing, modern technology is not what I would say is more convenient or useful and more modern. They are downright aggravating at times. The old phone on the wall is where it was supposed to be at all times. No hunting for hours in cushions, in cars in the “other” room, or for me just inoperable because it got wet and I had to wait to go to town to buy a new one! Yesterday, Bob needed to gradate to an iPhone because his flip phone was out of date. It was a year old!! I made three trips to AT&T, two trips to Walmart and put in countless hours of putting in a phone list and learning the new upgrade of a new phone so I could teach Bob how to use it. We have not gotten over that hump yet!! This whole process took up my whole day and part of Susan’s! I want to thank Daughter Susan for being my teacher and guiding me through the process of new phones, time and time again. I would be in the dark world of no phone if it were not for her! The old phone on the wall did not need a password. All you had to do is dial the numbers and talk! AND my biggest peeve is the new more modern phones always need to be updated and mine is always out of date! Darn it! I just got to where I could remember how to use it! I have had to train another brain power that is jammed into the corner of my brain so I could eventually remember which button to use! Now today I need to continue to figure out how to disconnect the flip phone — just dial 611 she said. I still have not found out how to do that! I am sure you have complaints also, and I haven’t even started on when computers came into use and how left-handed and fumbled fingered I was learning that at age 62!! I even took a class to improve my skills, because I wanted to write cookbooks!! I accomplished that and have written several cookbooks, each a little better that the last one! When I started this story I was sure I did no have much to say about a phone — I guess I did and I could say MORE, but it is unprintable!

MEXICALLI-CHICKEN POT PIE This is fast and delicious. Oil and line an 8-inch pie plate with large flour tortilla. In a bowl mix: 2 cups leftover cooked chicken or turkey or ground beef or moose 1 can cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom 1 small bag of your favorite mixed frozen vegetables. Thaw, drain and warm in microwave. 1 small can of chopped green chilis 1/2 of chopped onion 1 or 2 chopped jalapenos 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic Mix all together and pour into your flour tortilla-lined pie plate. Top with another flour tortilla. Butter the top and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat in oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and top with cheese and heat again for 15 to 20 minutes until it bubbles. Let stand for 15 minutes and serve with lettuce wedges topped with Ranch dressing. P.S., leftovers are delicious!

BOB’S SPAGHETTI SAUCE This takes green olives; it is not a typing error! One pound of Jimmy Dean sausage — any flavor, except maple-spicy works best Two pounds of ground lean hamburger — ground moose is excellent Any amount of chopped onions, green peppers, a little celery and a small amount of grated or finely chopped carrot. The celery and carrot sweetens it a little and takes care of the acid in the tomatoes. Half a small bottle of green olives with pimentos, sliced. Now they do have the sliced

with pimiento green olives or the bits and pieces — about half a cup with juice. Brown sausage and what other kind of meat. Place in colander to drain. Press fat out with paper towel if necessary. Do not have to do this with moose! Place a large glass or stainless pot with a small amount of oil on low heat on stove and add the vegetables cooked until softened. Add the olives and a small can of tomato paste and a can of water. Add two large cans of tomato sauce — P.S., now they have the various flavored spaghetti sauces in large cans. If using these do not use the two cans of tomato sauce. Add one can of diced tomatoes or stewed or diced stewed Mexican tomatoes. Add a package of favorite spaghetti seasoning mix. Simmer about an hour on low heat or until thick. Stir occasionally — this is a good crock pot meal. Serve with hot noodles that have been drained and sprinkled with olive oil and parsley. Serve with your favorite garlic bread.

QUICK TOPPING FOR VANILLA ICE CREAM 2 cans apple pie filling Pour into sauce pan and add: Juice of 1 lemon 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup shopped walnuts 1/4 cup sugar On low, low heat (or in microwave) heat until sugar dissolves stirring once in a while. Put on stove before eating supper and it will be warmed for the ice cream treat that everyone will love. Of course, top it with whipped cream!

Zucchini or summer squash makes for a colorful pasta dish By America’s Test Kitchen The Associated Press

A combination of pasta and summer squash results in a light, flavourful dish that’s full of colour. We decided against peeling the squash, as the skin helped to keep the pieces intact throughout the cooking process. Because summer squash contains so much liquid, we salted and drained it to keep our sauce from ending up watery and bland. The salted squash also browned beautifully just 5 minutes in a hot skillet gave a light char to each batch. To accompany the squash, we chose halved grape tomatoes, fresh basil, and pine nuts. We finished the sauce with balsamic vinegar to give it a kick and paired the sauce with farfalle, since its nooks and crannies easily trapped the flavour-packed ingredients. A combination of zucchini and summer squash makes for a more colorful dish, but either may be used exclusively if desired. Cherry tomatoes can be substituted for the grape tomatoes. If farfalle is unavailable, campanelle and fusilli are good substitutes. We prefer using kosher salt because residual grains can be easily wiped away from the squash if using table salt, be sure to reduce all of the salt amounts in the recipe by half.

FARFALLE WITH ZUCCHINI, TOMATOES AND PINE NUTS Servings: 6 Start to finish: 1 hour 2 pounds zucchini and/or summer squash, halved lengthwise and sliced 1/2 inch thick Kosher salt and pepper 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 pound farfalle 12 ounces grape tomatoes, halved 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar Grated Parmesan cheese Toss squash with 1 tablespoon salt and let drain in colander for 30 minutes. Pat squash dry with paper towels and carefully wipe away any residual salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until just smoking. Add half of squash and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and slightly charred, 5 to 7 minutes, reducing heat if skillet begins to scorch transfer to large plate. Repeat with 1 tablespoon oil and remaining squash transfer to plate. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in now-empty skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add garlic and pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in squash and cook until heated through, about 30 seconds. Meanwhile, bring 4 quarts water to boil in large pot. Add pasta and 1 tablespoon salt and cook, stirring often, until al dente. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water, then drain pasta and return it to pot. Add squash mixture, tomatoes, basil, pine nuts, vinegar, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste and adjust consistency with reserved cooking water as needed. Serve with Parmesan. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 463 calories 154 calories from fat 17 g fat (2 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 0 mg cholesterol 177 mg sodium 65 g carbohydrate 5 g fiber 9 g sugar 13 g protein.

. . . Annie Continued from page A7

Mom or Dad were out of the house, I got to talk a little longer to one of my high school friends or later one of my boyfriends. When I got married I cannot remember what kind of phone or where it was. I was too busy with little kids and a full-time job at the hospital. I do know it sat on a desk or table. I guess the huge advancement in my life was carrying around a big “mobile phone” that hung on your hip! You never lost it as it was too big. In 1967, when we moved to Alaska, North Kenai, now Nikiski, there were no telephones. The only communications was everyone had CB radios. If I wanted to talk to Mom or Dad or family in Colorado I had to go to a pay phone with a handful of quarters and stand in line and wait for the homesick person talking to tell his family “down below” goodbye. I think there was a pay phone at the Hunger Hut — I think? I do know I used one in Kenai at the “old” Carrs Mall, now the Employment Office building. BUT first you had to drive to town, wait for the bank to open to get $20 worth of quarters. Yes, I know at one time for a short while, the phone cost you a handful of nickels or dimes. Or one nickel or one dime to call locally. My first phone in my home in North Kenai was in a trailer house. Jim Goff installed it. The happy-go-lucky, always talkative “telephone man,” my kids called him, because they did not know his real name. We moved to Daniels Lake and he also installed our phone. That is when we found out he and his family had homesteaded the land next to us. Very nice neighbors! Once in a while Jim would bring us a big salmon that he had caught in Swanson River, just up the road from us. I graduated to those big phones on the hip kind for a while. The smaller phones were in stalled in the house on a “land line.” They still hooked up to the telephone lines, strung from post to post. (And at times strung from fence post to fence post). Just a year ago I got rid of our “land phone” as the price of it kept getting higher and higher. From $9 to $12 to $22 for several years. It just kept getting more expensive! We did not use it that much, because we were modernized — we have cellphones! So last year when my phone bill hit $56, I had it disconnected. It was like letting go of an old friend. We had that phone and the number for 32 years! At times I have carried a big cellphone, then a little flip phone — which I lost frequently! The new iPhones and iPads and all the other devices we have to keep us informed and entertained are hooked up to small wires hooked to an electrical outlet to charge. Well, every time you changed phones or lost one — or in my case dunked it in the toilet — you got, along with the purchase of a

new phone, another devise that plugs into an outlet so you can charge it. Why, why don’t they make the plug-ins ALL the same? I am sure I am not the only one who complains about the cords hanging out of extension cords and outlets that look downright awful. I also have a basket full of those little buggers. AND not one fits the phone I have now but only the one I cannot find!! I will say the invention of ringing your phone number by someone else’s phone is very nice when you have lost you own!! Now shall we talk about passwords and all the different ones you have and some you wrote down and some you did not! All the accounts that have password to get online on your computer to pay your bills! I hope everyone is so organized as to have them all written down. I do, in a fashion, but that little book is NOT where I need it at the time!! So, in closing, modern technology is not what I would say is more convenient or useful and more modern. They are downright aggravating at times. The old phone on the wall is where it was supposed to be at all times. No hunting for hours in cushions, in cars in the “other” room, or for me just inoperable because it got wet and I had to wait to go to town to buy a new one! Yesterday, Bob needed to gradate to an iPhone because his flip phone was out of date. It was a year old!! I made three trips to AT&T, two trips to Walmart and put in countless hours of putting in a phone list and learning the new upgrade of a new phone so I could teach Bob how to use it. We have not gotten over that hump yet!! This whole process took up my whole day and part of Susan’s! I want to thank Daughter Susan for being my teacher and guiding me through the process of new phones, time and time again. I would be in the dark world of no phone if it were not for her! The old phone on the wall did not need a password. All you had to do is dial the numbers and talk! AND my biggest peeve is the new more modern phones always need to be updated and mine is always out of date! Darn it! I just got to where I could remember how to use it! I have had to train another brain power that is jammed into the corner of my brain so I could eventually remember which button to use! Now today I need to continue to figure out how to disconnect the flip phone — just dial 611 she said. I still have not found out how to do that! I am sure you have complaints also, and I haven’t even started on when computers came into use and how left-handed and fumbled fingered I was learning that at age 62!! I even took a class to improve my skills, because I wanted to write cookbooks!! I accomplished that and have written several cookbooks, each a little better that the last one! When I started this story I was sure I did no have much to say about a phone — I guess I did and I could say MORE, but it is unprintable!

MEXICALLI-CHICKEN POT PIE This is fast and delicious. Oil and line an 8-inch pie plate with large flour tortilla. In a bowl mix: 2 cups leftover cooked chicken or turkey or ground beef or moose 1 can cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom 1 small bag of your favorite mixed frozen vegetables. Thaw, drain and warm in microwave. 1 small can of chopped green chilis 1/2 of chopped onion 1 or 2 chopped jalapenos 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic Mix all together and pour into your flour tortilla-lined pie plate. Top with another flour tortilla. Butter the top and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat in oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and top with cheese and heat again for 15 to 20 minutes until it bubbles. Let stand for 15 minutes and serve with lettuce wedges topped with Ranch dressing. P.S., leftovers are delicious!

BOB’S SPAGHETTI SAUCE This takes green olives; it is not a typing error! One pound of Jimmy Dean sausage — any flavor, except maple-spicy works best Two pounds of ground lean hamburger — ground moose is excellent Any amount of chopped onions, green peppers, a little celery and a small amount of grated or finely chopped carrot. The celery and carrot sweetens it a little and takes care of the acid in the tomatoes. Half a small bottle of green olives with pimentos, sliced. Now they do have the sliced

with pimiento green olives or the bits and pieces — about half a cup with juice. Brown sausage and what other kind of meat. Place in colander to drain. Press fat out with paper towel if necessary. Do not have to do this with moose! Place a large glass or stainless pot with a small amount of oil on low heat on stove and add the vegetables cooked until softened. Add the olives and a small can of tomato paste and a can of water. Add two large cans of tomato sauce — P.S., now they have the various flavored spaghetti sauces in large cans. If using these do not use the two cans of tomato sauce. Add one can of diced tomatoes or stewed or diced stewed Mexican tomatoes. Add a package of favorite spaghetti seasoning mix. Simmer about an hour on low heat or until thick. Stir occasionally — this is a good crock pot meal. Serve with hot noodles that have been drained and sprinkled with olive oil and parsley. Serve with your favorite garlic bread.

QUICK TOPPING FOR VANILLA ICE CREAM 2 cans apple pie filling Pour into sauce pan and add: Juice of 1 lemon 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup shopped walnuts 1/4 cup sugar On low, low heat (or in microwave) heat until sugar dissolves stirring once in a while. Put on stove before eating supper and it will be warmed for the ice cream treat that everyone will love. Of course, top it with whipped cream!

Zucchini or summer squash makes for a colorful pasta dish By America’s Test Kitchen The Associated Press

A combination of pasta and summer squash results in a light, flavourful dish that’s full of colour. We decided against peeling the squash, as the skin helped to keep the pieces intact throughout the cooking process. Because summer squash contains so much liquid, we salted and drained it to keep our sauce from ending up watery and bland. The salted squash also browned beautifully just 5 minutes in a hot skillet gave a light char to each batch. To accompany the squash, we chose halved grape tomatoes, fresh basil, and pine nuts. We finished the sauce with balsamic vinegar to give it a kick and paired the sauce with farfalle, since its nooks and crannies easily trapped the flavour-packed ingredients. A combination of zucchini and summer squash makes for a more colorful dish, but either may be used exclusively if desired. Cherry tomatoes can be substituted for the grape tomatoes. If farfalle is unavailable, campanelle and fusilli are good substitutes. We prefer using kosher salt because residual grains can be easily wiped away from the squash if using table salt, be sure to reduce all of the salt amounts in the recipe by half.

FARFALLE WITH ZUCCHINI, TOMATOES AND PINE NUTS Servings: 6 Start to finish: 1 hour 2 pounds zucchini and/or summer squash, halved lengthwise and sliced 1/2 inch thick Kosher salt and pepper 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 pound farfalle 12 ounces grape tomatoes, halved 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar Grated Parmesan cheese Toss squash with 1 tablespoon salt and let drain in colander for 30 minutes. Pat squash dry with paper towels and carefully wipe away any residual salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until just smoking. Add half of squash and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and slightly charred, 5 to 7 minutes, reducing heat if skillet begins to scorch transfer to large plate. Repeat with 1 tablespoon oil and remaining squash transfer to plate. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in now-empty skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add garlic and pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in squash and cook until heated through, about 30 seconds. Meanwhile, bring 4 quarts water to boil in large pot. Add pasta and 1 tablespoon salt and cook, stirring often, until al dente. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water, then drain pasta and return it to pot. Add squash mixture, tomatoes, basil, pine nuts, vinegar, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste and adjust consistency with reserved cooking water as needed. Serve with Parmesan. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 463 calories 154 calories from fat 17 g fat (2 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 0 mg cholesterol 177 mg sodium 65 g carbohydrate 5 g fiber 9 g sugar 13 g protein.

New Orleans wins NBA draft lottery, 1st pick Pelicans secure No. 1 pick in upcoming NBA draft with all eyes on Duke star Williamson By TIM REYNOLDS AP Basketball Writer

CHICAGO — Zion Williamson has never been to New Orleans. That may be changing very soon. The Pelicans bucked seriously long odds Tuesday night, winning the NBA draft lottery and the right to have the first chance at selecting the former Duke star next month — and potentially pairing him with Anthony Davis, in what would immediately become one of the league’s most intriguing frontcourt duos. “I don’t believe the universe makes mistakes,” said David Griffin, who is barely a month into his tenure as New Orleans’ executive vice president of basketball operations. “I just think we have something special going on.” Griffin doesn’t play the lot-

tery, unless the jackpot is one of those billion-dollar-type enormous ones. Maybe he should. The pingpong balls seem to bounce his way a lot. Griffin was with Cleveland when the Cavaliers won the lottery in 2011, 2013 and 2014. And now it’s the Pelicans, his new employer, which has struck lottery gold. They defied the odds to do it; the Pelicans entered the lottery with a 6% chance of winning the No. 1 pick for the June 20 draft. So now, instead of going into a summer where they may have traded Davis — the player New Orleans got when it won the lottery in 2012, the player who was openly disgruntled this season — the Pelicans have a chance at becoming much better, and fast. “This just jump-starts the process,” Griffin said. “It’ll

be harder for me to mess it up than it would have been before this.” Memphis will choose second, New York third and the Los Angeles Lakers will pick fourth. The Pelicans, Grizzlies and Lakers all moved up to get a top-four spot; New York, Phoenix and Cleveland had the best odds of winning the lottery at 14% each, and none of those clubs even got a toptwo pick. The lottery had a new format this year, one that the league hoped would even the playing field in a number of ways and didn’t make all-out tanking a more enticing option to teams looking to maximize their chance at securing the No. 1 pick. The Knicks, Suns and Cavs didn’t have much interest in winning this season, with none winning more than 19 games. See DRAFT, page A10

Sale gets 17K, Rox beat Sox BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox ace Chris Sale struck out a career-high 17 in just seven innings before getting pulled after 108 pitches on a chilly Tuesday night, and the Colorado Rockies rallied against Boston’s bullpen to win 5-4 in the 11th. Sale became the first pitcher in major league history to fan 17 in a start of no more than seven innings. Boston pitchers combined to strike out 24, but the Red Sox had their five-game winning streak stopped. Mark Reynolds, whose fifth-inning double was the first runner allowed by Sale, drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out single in the 11th off Ryan Brasier (2-2). Sale struck out the first six batters and fanned eight through three innings. He topped his previous best of 15 strikeouts, which he had done three times. The All-Star lefty had a shutout through six innings. Nolan Arenado’s two-run homer in the seventh was one of only three hits managed by the Rockies against Sale. BLUE JAYS 7, GIANTS 3

Warriors drop Trail Blazers Warriors take 1-0 series lead, Curry drains 9 3-pointers By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer

OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry had all kinds of room for a change and capitalized, finding his shooting touch in a hurry to get Golden State on a roll. Portland’s defenders were too far back in the paint or a step behind all night. “Practice shots,” Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard said of Curry’s wide-open chances. So far, the Warriors are showing they can keep winning until Kevin Durant gets healthy. Making it look easy again, Curry knocked down nine 3-pointers on his way to 36 points, leading the two-time defending champions past the Trail Blazers 116-94 on Tuesday night in Game 1 of the Western

Conference finals. “I know what I’m capable of on the floor. The situation calls for me to be a little bit more aggressive and hopefully that’ll continue,” said Curry, who came in shooting 37.1% on 3s this postseason. “Obviously it’s nice to see the ball go in. I didn’t shoot the ball well for 4 1/2 games the last series and got off to a good start tonight. I want to maintain that. Every game is different, you’ve got to re-establish yourself. That’s my perspective no matter how I play.” Curry shot 12 for 23 in his fourth 30-point performance this postseason, finding far more open looks than he had in the last round against Houston. The two-time NBA MVP outplayed the Portland duo of Lillard and CJ McCollum, who combined to go 11 for 31 against a

strong Golden State defense. “It’s good to see Steph have a game like that at a time that obviously we need him most,” Draymond Green said. Klay Thompson had 26 points, including a late one-handed slam. Green established the energy on both ends early for the well-rested Warriors, finishing with 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals. Lillard scored 19 points back home in Oakland, just miles away from where he grew up. He appreciated all the support but wants to stick to basketball. “That’s part of what makes it special, I’m from here,” Lillard said. “I could walk home from here if I wanted to, that tells you how close it is.”

Bruins take 3-0 Eastern finals lead on Hurricanes By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Tuukka Rask and the Boston Bruins stood tall during an early deluge of shots and penalties, patiently waiting for their chance to take over the game. Then one big burst put them on the brink of another trip to the Stanley Cup Final. The Bruins beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Tuesday night, taking a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference final after Chris Wagner and Brad Marchand scored 5:07 apart in the second period. “The moral of the story is, we got through the first period — however you want to describe it —

and off we went after that,” coach Bruce Cassidy said. Rask stopped 35 shots for the Bruins, who have won six straight postseason games for the first time since 1978. They are one victory away from their third Stanley Cup appearance in nine years. Boston will go for the sweep on Thursday night. “This year, I feel like we really have each other’s backs,” Rask said. “We’ve been in some tight games, and then our depth comes in, and we score some goals and we take over the games.” Calvin de Haan scored and Curtis McElhinney made 29 saves for the Hurricanes while starting in place of Petr Mrazek, who allowed 10 goals in the first two

games of the series. This one was closer, but it still wasn’t enough to keep alive Carolina’s postseason perfection at home — where a pig named Hamilton looks on from behind the corner boards. “There’s no way around it. There’s no way to sugarcoat it,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said. We got kicked in the youknow-where.” And now they’re in an unenviable spot. Only four teams in NHL history have ever rallied to win a series they trailed 3-0, and none since Los Angeles in 2014 — though Carolina captain Justin Williams was on that Kings team that rallied to beat San Jose in the first round.

“I’m probably going to give you ... the clichés that are going to be thrown to you and everything,” Williams said. This one got away from them in the first 7½ minutes of the second, when the Bruins claimed control with their fourth line turning a turnover by Carolina’s Brock McGinn into a 1-0 lead at 1:21. Sean Kuraly collected the puck and passed low to Joakim Nordstrom, with the former Hurricane then finding Wagner alone in front for a tap-in. “That line scored a goal by playing the right way, pursuing pucks,” Cassidy said. “They’re fourth-liners. You don’t expect them to make a tic-tac-toe play, but they did, and good for them.”

The Bruins entered with the NHL’s best postseason power-play unit — converting on a full third of their chances in the playoffs — and they were 1 of 5 in this one with the man advantage against a Carolina penalty kill that began with a sub50% success rate in this series. But that one goal was a significant one. With 19 seconds left on a highsticking minor on Nino Niederreiter, Marchand put Boston up 2-0 when his shot from between the circles trickled past McElhinney. It loomed large because the Hurricanes pulled within a goal when de Haan’s slap shot off a draw got through Rask’s pads for the defenseman’s first goal since Nov. 8.

RAYS 4, MARLINS 0 MIAMI (AP) — Charlie Morton pitched six strong innings and Avisail Garcia homered and drove in three runs in Tampa Bay’s win over Miami. Morton (4-0) gave up three hits and struck out five while throwing 82 pitches before he was pulled for a pinch hitter in the top of the seventh inning.

BREWERS 6, PHILLIES 1 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brandon Woodruff threw one-hit ball for six innings, Yasmani Grandal and Ryan Braun homered and Milwaukee topped Philadelphia. The Phillies survived a scare when Bryce Harper made a sliding catch on a foul ball to right field and banged his left knee into the wall in the sixth. Harper came up limping but remained in the game and made an almost identical catch to end the inning. He received a standing ovation only to get booed after striking out again in the eighth.

CUBS 3, REDS 1 CINCINNATI (AP) — Kyle Hendricks had three hits, including a two-run double, and pitched into the ninth inning as Chicago beat Cincinnati. The Cubs are 10-2 in May, their best start to the month since 1977. Chicago has won 22 of 28 games for the NL’s best record at 25-14.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Listen well and get past a problem. You hear information that you might not be sure is correct. Before mentioning what you are hearing, verify what is fact and what is fiction. A partner or associate expresses his or her caring. Tonight: Get lots of R and R. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Zero in on what you want. Do not allow another person to interfere with your objectives. Somehow, you feel as if others need to know where you are coming from. Let them know. Tonight: Say yes to an offer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Take charge and be ready to get to the bottom of a problem.

More than vitamins are needed Dear Heloise: I’ve decided to stop counting calories and look toward nutrition. Here’s my question: Since I take my VITAMINS faithfully every day, does it matter whether or not I eat the required amount of vegetables and fruit? I’m not especially fond of either. -- Derek T., Tipton, Ind. Derek, YES, it matters! Eating fruits and vegetables provides you with things your vitamin pills don’t. To begin with, a vitamin pill does not give you fiber. There are many components in foods that, as yet, cannot be packaged in a pill form. Eating an apple, for example, will provide substances such as “phytochemicals” that are advantageous to you. So, eat your fruits and vegetables, but try various recipes to wake up your taste buds. -- Heloise BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE Dear Heloise: Every morning, I whip up a healthy smoothie for my husband and me. It tastes great and gives us energy. Here are the ingredients: 1 1/4 cups chopped kale 1 1/4 cups frozen cubed fruit (mango, pineapple or banana) 1 cup fresh orange juice 1/4 cup fresh mint 1 teaspoon organic honey (optional) 1 tablespoon plain yogurt (optional) 2 scoops of whey protein powder We cube the fruit, place it in plastic bags and freeze it ahead of time. This is so filling that we don’t eat breakfast, but we do eat a healthy lunch and dinner. -- Kassidy M., Venice, Fla.

Does it include complimenting someone on a new hairstyle or a new outfit, for example? Please clarify. -- CONFUSED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR CONFUSED: In a work situation, among the subjects that should now be avoided are references to the appearance of a subordinate or a co-worker because they could be construed as sexual harassment. However, in social situations, compliments are usually welcome.

US bill calls for DOJ review of Indian Country probes By MARY HUDETZ Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — U.S. House members reintroduced legislation Tuesday that calls for the Justice Department to review how law enforcement agencies respond to cases of missing and slain Native Americans as the nationwide push to bring more attention to the issue gains momentum. The legislation is named for 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, who went missing while pregnant in 2017 before her body was found in a North Dakota river. Her baby, who Fargo police

Gallagher said that the inmates actually convinced the officer to step outside the unit to grab trash bags and other basic cleaning supplies and then immediately barricaded the doors, preventing the officer from re-entering. The riot began at 9

said had been cut from LaFontaine-Greywind's womb by a neighbor, survived. Savanna's Act is among numerous measures that have been introduced at the state and federal level this year to try to address violence against Native American women, who have been victimized at staggering rates for decades. More than half have encountered sexual and domestic violence at some point during their lives, according to the most recently available federal figures. And there has been growing concern within tribal communities that women have gone missing at a higher rate than federal da-

tabases indicate because tribal officers lack the resources and training to document and respond to the cases on reservations or because of a mistrust of law enforcement. "It's almost like people don't know how to deal with this issue," said Rep. Deb Haaland, who is a Democrat from New Mexico and an enrolled tribal member of the Pueblo of Laguna. "This is why we're pressing to know everything." Savanna's Act aims to address the gaps in data by proposing to expand tribes' access to some federal crime databases, establish protocols for handling cases of missing

and slain Native Americans, and require annual reports on missing and murdered Native Americans that will give lawmakers a better handle on the potential scope of the problem. Haaland along with Reps. Norma Torres, a California Democrat, and Dan Newhouse, a Washington Republican, are the bill's lead sponsors in the House while U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, an Alaska Republican, re-introduced the legislation in the Senate earlier this year. The bill was unanimously approved in the U.S. Senate last year but died in the House.

tax for a maximum of one half of the borough’s tax. The ordinance has been reintroduced by Assemblyman Dale Bagley. A similar proposal has been rejected by the assembly. According to City Manager Paul Ostrander in council documents, Kenai’s participation in the bed tax would include about 28 businesses, not including motor homes or tents. Ostrander also said, in council documents, that the council may want to consider recommending that the assembly include the taxa-

tion or RV and tent sites. According to Ostrander, the city enacted a 5% bed tax in 1991, which was put in place to promote economic development in the city and tourism within the city. It was suspended in 1996, because it put the city of Kenai at a competitive disadvantage when local lodging was in low demand. “The suspension of the bed tax was due to the possibility of adverse impacts on Kenai hotel/motel operators that asserted the tax made them uncompetitive with similar businesses outside of the City of Kenai that did not have a bed tax,” Ostrander said. The council will meet Wednesday night at 6 p.m.

the 10 p.m. deadline on Monday. Local Foods Director Robbi Mixon said that every producer has a “virtual stall” on the website where customers can learn about the people behind the products and the growing practices of each producer. Margo Reviel is the owner of Jakolof Bay Oyster Company in Homer. She has been selling her oysters through the Food Hub since it started. Reviel said that the food hub

has allowed her and other farmers more time to focus on growing their products. “Every day spent at the farmer’s market is a day that they’re not farming,” said Reviel. “The food hub has been super reliable and has helped us make good connections with our customers.” The producers fill the orders that they receive on Tuesday, and on Wednesday morning the products are delivered to one of three locations: Sister Ship

in Old Town Homer, The Cook Inletkeeper Headquarters in Soldotna or the Smokey Bay Air Terminal in Seldovia. Customers can arrive on Wednesday afternoon at the location that they specified to pick up their orders. Mixon said that Cook Inletkeeper is planning on opening a location in Ninilchik soon and is always looking to expand the number of customers and producers involved in the program in order to di-

versify their product selection. As of now, Mixon said that about 35 producers offer everything from flowers and fresh vegetables to jams and spice blends. There are more than 1,200 members of the Alaska Food Hub. Mixon said that people can place up to three orders before becoming a member, and membership dues are anywhere from $1 to $100 per year with the amount chosen by the member in a pay-what-youcan system. Mixon said that

the growers pay $40 a year to be a part of the program and are paid every week for their orders. The Food Hub operates from May until Thanksgiving of each year. The Open House will take place from 3:30 to 6 p.m. at the Cook Inletkeeper office at 35911 Kenai Spur Hwy, Suite 13 in Soldotna (where the Mattress Ranch is located). Alaskafoodhub.org is the website where people can place their orders.

p.m. on Tuesday night and lasted for roughly 10 hours, according to a May 8 press release from the Department of Corrections. Correctional officers from Kenai and Anchorage were sent to Spring Creek as part of a Special Operations Response Team (SORT) to respond and put an end to the rioting. “The SORT Teams are made up of designated correctional officers whose members are selected, trained and equipped to resolve situations such as the

one that occurred at Spring Creek,” Gallagher said. The SORT team was able to gain entry to the unit using a barricade breacher and subdued the prisoners using various forms of non-lethal force, including restraints, “less lethal” munitions and non-lethal chemical agents. No injuries to officers or inmates were reported during the incident. While the investigation into the incident is ongoing, Gallagher said that it was not a gang-related riot. Members of several prison

gangs, including the 1488’s, Kaucasian Kings, Family Over Everything and the Native Brotherhood, were housed in the unit at the time, but all 62 inmates acted together to barricade the door and cause damage to the facility. Gallagher said that while the exact motivation behind the incident is yet to be determined, it was clear that the inmates were trying to send a message to the administration. Gallagher said that all the prisoners involved are

subject to internal disciplinary processes as well as criminal prosecution through the Alaska State Troopers. No charges have been filed pending investigation by the DOC. Gallagher said that about half of the prisoners involved are still housed at Spring Creek in a more restrictive environment, and the rest have been sent to other facilities in the state. Gov. Mike Dunleavy visited the facility on Friday and thanked the correctional officers for han-

dling the situation. “I just want to assure the people of Alaska that we’re in pretty good hands with these folks,” Dunleavy said during his visit. “And this was taken care of, I think, by the book, without injury, so I’m pretty happy about that.” Gallagher said that the superintendent of the prison, William Lapinskas, expects the repairs to the housing unit to be completed within 30 days, at which point prisoners will be moved back in to the facility.

Medical Center in Seattle with serious injuries. The six people at the Ketchikan Medical Center, she said, are all in good condition and she said they expect to release one person today. Multiple public events were held Tuesday to show community support and share information amid what residents characterized as a sad atmosphere in Ketchikan. A lunchtime prayer event similar to an annual Christmas tradition was held at the medical center. “Last night, it was just literally a cloud of sadness,” said organizer Rhonda Bolling, who said she knows people directly affected by the accident. “I’ve been on the verge of tears.” Bolling said she would be praying for those involved in the crash but also for searchers and the tight-knit travel industry. “We worry because these people are coming up for the trip of a lifetime,” Bolling said. “For this to happen just crushes them. It hurts all of the tour operators.” “It was really, really a traumatic day for (emergency responders) yesterday,” she added. Later in the afternoon,

press conference and teleconference was held during which city and featured comments from borough mayors, a Coast Guard commander, and Homendy. Homendy said wreckage from both planes is expected to be recovered tomorrow and more information about how the two planes came together will be determined in the coming days. Neither plane had or was required to have voice or data recorders, Homendy said. While Homendy said an NTSB investigation of the crash will not determine the cause of the crash, it will consider factors and review information that may have led to it. “We’ll be looking at pilot log books, we’ll be looking at the training and qualification of pilots, any medical issues, whether flight plans were filed with the company or the Federal Aviation Administration,” Homendy said. “We’ll be looking at maintenance records for both air crafts. We will be looking at company operating procedure and whether those operating procedures were followed. We’ll be looking at the routes that were flown.”

Service, was involved in the accident. Friends and family of Sullivan posted messages of mourning and remembrance, but they did not reply to messages seeking comment. Mountain Air Service did not respond to calls or a message. Wells Fargo in Ketchikan has established a memorial account for Sullivan’s family. A Wells Fargo branch manager said deposits to the Randy Sullivan memorial account can be made in person at any Wells Fargo in the country. In addition to the dead and missing, 10 people suffered injuries as a result of the crash. The injuries ranged in severity from broken bones and lacerations to life-threatening injuries, and the injured people were initially transported to Ketchikan Medical Center. Mischa Chernik, marketing and communications manager at the Ketchikan Medical Center, said via phone Tuesday morning that four people were flown to Harborview
