In the news Corps corrects end date for Pebble project comment period JUNEAU — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has corrected the closing date for the extended comment period for a draft environmental review of a proposed copper and gold mine in Alaska’s Bristol Bay region. The corps earlier this month said it was extending the comment period from 90 days to 120 days and said it would end June 29. However, John Budnik, a spokesman for the corps, said by email Monday that a formal comment period cannot close on a weekend. He says the new close date is July 1. The Pebble Limited Partnership wants to develop the mine in Southwest Alaska. Critics of the project fear it could impact a major salmon fishery.

Knopp censured by Republicans By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Rep. Gary Knopp, RKenai/Soldotna, faced an official censure on Friday from the Alaska Republican Party State Central Committee for his role in forming a majority coalition with Democratic representatives at the beginning of this year’s legislative session. Glenn Clary, chairman of the State Central Committee, said that the censure will have three major consequences for Knopp: Knopp will no longer receive any official support — financial or otherwise — from the Alaska Republican Party; a primary chal-

lenger to Knopp will be supported by the party and Knopp will be prohibited

from participating in any official Alaska Republican Party activities.

As of now, two people have already filed as primary challengers against Knopp, who is up for reelection in 2020: Ron Gillham, who previously ran against Sen. Peter Micciche, R-Soldotna, in the last election cycle, and former Rep. Kelly Wolf. Clary said that the Alaska Republican Party has not yet endorsed either of these candidates. The motion for censure was made during Friday’s Republican Party committee meeting in Kenai by Jason Floyd, a member of the District 30 Republicans and a constituent of Knopp. According to the language in the motion, Knopp “enSee REP, page A2

Troopers arrest suspect in death of Fairbanks woman FAIRBANKS — Alaska State Troopers have arrested a 25-yearold Fairbanks man suspected of killing a 69-year-old woman with whom he had been staying. A trooper patrolling Friday north of North Pole spotted Patrick Marsh walking. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports Marsh provided a false name but troopers positively identified and arrested him. Marsh is charged with killing Trisha Pearson on May 12 at her home west of Fairbanks. Prosecutors say a home video surveillance system installed by another of Pearson’s tenants captured images of Marsh striking Pearson with pieces of furniture and strangling her. Prosecutors say Marsh covered Pearson’s body and left the house in her sport utility vehicle. The SUV was found abandoned in east Fairbanks. Other tenants asked a friend to check on Pearson. Her body was found May 13. — Associated Press

A unique ceremony for a unique school IDEA home-school students graduate By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

A statewide home-school program graduated 45 Kenai Peninsula students Saturday afternoon. IDEA Homeschool is a statewide home-schooling program that began out of

the Galena City School District in 1997. The program has a handful of local offices across the state, including on the Kenai Peninsula, where the program serves nearly 1,000 students. “It’s an amazing program,” Dean O’Dell, the site

administrator for the local office, said. “We serve quite a few families here.” O’Dell said the IDEA Homeschool graduation is not a typical ceremony. “Our ceremony is a little different than most,” O’Dell said. “Instead of administrators handing diplomas to

Crime bill vote delayed By Ben Hohenstatt Juneau Empire

Representatives hadn’t seen a new crime bill more than an hour after the legislation was expected on the House floor Monday, and they expected the delay was just getting started. A delayed afternoon flight, 4 p.m. caucusing and 5 p.m. public testimony combined to form an hourslong delay for an expected 3 p.m. vote on House Bill 49. “The intent is to go tonight even if it’s a little bit later than we normally would like and take a vote on the crime bill,” Rep. Lance Pruitt, R-Anchorage, told the Juneau Empire.

“It’s just kind of a weird special session delay.” Rep. Tammie Wilson, R-North Pole, agreed the

delay was an odd one in light of the sunny weather in Southeast Alaska. See VOTE, page A2

a Monday press release from the Department of Public Safety. Colonel Barry Wilson, director of the Alaska State Troopers, said that the main focus of the campaign is to save lives. See HIGH, page A3

School board approves some nontenured teacher contracts By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Sixty two non-tenured teachers will avoid pink slips at the end of this year. At Thursday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education meeting, the school board moved to offer contracts to more than 60 teachers across the district. The jobs weren’t secure due to fiscal uncertainty around Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed budget and the local contribution from the borough. Education funding is in a more certain place, now that Gov. Dunleavy has promised to not veto education funding and the borough says they’ll fund to the cap, or to the maximum allowable by statute. “The only reason the district waited on NonTenured teacher contracts was due to the fiscal uncertainty of state funding for FY20,” Pegge Erkeneff, communications liaison for the district, said in an email. The contracts are based on contracts that were set to expire last June, but are still in effect. Since May 8, the district and two employee associations, Kenai Peninsula Education Association and Kenai Peninsula Education Support Association, have been negotiating a new contract in several collective bargaining meetings, to replace the outdated agreement. Thursday’s session ended with no conSee BOARD, page A3

Fatalities confirmed in floatplane crash By Ben Hohenstatt Juneau Empire

Two people died after a floatplane crashed in the water near Ketchikan late Monday afternoon. A pilot and a single passenger died after a Taquan Air Beaver floatplane crashed in Metlakatla Harbor at 4:10 p.m., according to a press release from the emergency Operations Center in Ketchikan. No others were aboard the plane. The names of the deceased in Monday’s crash were not released Monday evening pending notification of next of kin. The fatal crash comes one week after a fatal mid-air collision involving two floatplanes near Ketchikan. Six died and 10 were injured in that crash. A Taquan Air Beaver was also involved in that crash. Both of the deceased were brought to the Annette Island Service Unit, and good Samaritans brought the Beaver to the beach until it could be secured, according to the release.

The U.S. Coast Guard received a report of the crash at 4:10 p.m., according to Public Affairs Specialist Lauren Dean. “The Coast Guard has responded to that, but we’re not the lead on that case,” Dean said. She said Metlakatla Police, Alaska State Troopers, local EMS and good Samaritans were able to assist the people aboard the floatplane before the Coast Guard was on the scene. Fifteen members of the Metlakatla Volunteer Fire Department responded to the crash. A seine boat was first on scene. The Ketchikan Volunteer Rescue Squad dispatched a 26-foot rescue boat at 4:56 p.m. with eight volunteers, according to the release. While circumstances of the crash have not been released, Jerry Kiffer, Incident Commander for Ketchikan Volunteer Rescue Squad told the Juneau Empire that while he could not speak to the exact conditions in Metlakatla Harbor visibility was good and See CRASH, page A3

“I don’t think anyone thought they’d have any problems with getting in,” Wilson said in an interview with the Empire. Additionally, public testimony for House Bill 1001, a bill appropriating money for public education, was scheduled for 5 p.m. Monday, which Wilson expected to push a vote further back. “It could be quite a bit later,” Wilson said. “I don’t think we’ll be lonely.” While legislators had yet to see the bill late Monday afternoon, Wilson said she anticipated that both legislators in favor and opposed to the bill will be “content” with HB 49.

The censure was passed unanimously. Knopp was also in attendance during the meeting. Knopp has had to justify his actions to constituents repeatedly throughout this year’s legislative session. In the first 30 days of the regular legislative session, Knopp refused to vote for a Republican Speaker of the House, and said during a

Hannan, D-Juneau, said the impact of the bill would be expected to create more prisoners than Alaska’s facilities could contain, which would necessitate sending prisoners out of state. “We’re going to open up Palmer, and that still won’t be enough,” Wilson said. Hannan, who had not yet seen the most recently revised version of the bill, said she took issue with its approach to addressing crime. “For all political regards, it remains the repeal of Senate Bill 91,” Hannan said in an interview. “I’ve been burglarized and I’ve been assaulted, so it’s not that I don’t care about crime, but my concerns always were with the bill, as it is written, is all it’s doing is increasing punishments.” She said while individuals would be expected to receive longer sentences, the bill does not provide more funding for police officers

or additional resources for prosecutors. “If we don’t put more police into enforcement, if we don’t have more defense attorneys, we still don’t end up with any reduction in crime, just longer punishments,” Hannan said. Wilson said she hopes the extension the Legislature has received in the form of the special session allows for some of those issues to be addressed. “There’s no treatment in this bill whatsoever,” Wilson said in reference to programs that could help rehabilitate inmates. She said she hopes that’s a concern that the Legislature will get to through new legislation or the budget before it convenes. Wilson said folks sent out of state have the right to come back to Alaska, and it’s irrational to expect them to find the resources that would help reduce recidivism.

“We absolutely need to address some of those things this year,” Wilson said.

town hall held in Soldotna on Feb. 15 that he did so because he didn’t feel that a 21-person Republican Majority would be a strong enough coalition to get things done during session. Knopp has said that his primary goal has always been getting a budget

passed, but even with the bipartisan majority coalition that Knopp helped form, the House was unable to pass a budget during regular session and was forced to go into an extended session to deal with that and several other issues including crime, education and

the Alaska Permanent Fund dividend. Clary said that the topic of censure was initially brought up within the State Central Committee back in January, during the fight over organization in the House, but the issue was tabled at that time.

More delays to come? Like the tardy crime bill, boxes also weren’t present around the Capitol Monday afternoon. However, legislators were split on whether a lack of packing portends the special session could be a long one. Wilson chalked it up to a sign of the digital age, making toting around physical files unnecessary. Additionally, she said legislators know they’ll be coming back to their offices again next year. Hannan was less optimistic and said the state’s budget and the size of Alaska Permanent Fund dividend checks are likely, in her estimation, to be sticking points. “I think we’re going to use all 30 days of the session,” Hannan said. “I think the wheels have come to a screeching halt.”

What others say

Trump’s tariffs bring economic uncertainty President Trump often cites the stock market as proof of his economic-policy success, so let’s hope he was watching the Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday. The Dow fell 2.38%, and the Nasdaq and Russell 2000 fell even more, on the escalating tariff dispute between the U.S. and China. Stocks are volatile, but there’s no denying that markets are rising or falling these days in substantial part on the prospects of a U.S.-China trade deal. They fell Friday morning after Mr. Trump raised tariffs to 25% on $200 billion in Chinese exports to the U.S., then rose later that day on word that bilateral talks had been “constructive.” Equities fell again Monday when China retaliated with tariffs up to 25% on $60 billion of U.S. goods. The Dow is now nearly 1300 points lower than it was in January 2018 when Mr. Trump began his tariff offensive — despite the best 12 months for economic growth since 2005 and healthy corporate profits. The stock market isn’t the only measure of economic health, and it can send false signals, but in this case the clear market message is that tariffs will subtract from economic growth. Regarding China, Americans have been giving Mr. Trump the benefit of the doubt that his tariff strategy is intended as leverage to negotiate a better, fairer trading regime. But Mr. Trump seems to sincerely believe that tariffs are a free lunch. “The unexpectedly good first quarter 3.2% GDP was greatly helped by Tariffs from China. Some people just don’t get it!” Mr. Trump tweeted Monday. But tariffs are taxes that raise the price of Chinese goods for U.S. consumers and producers. They also raise the price of domestic goods that compete with Chinese imports because U.S. producers tend to raise their prices with the competition. This is what happened after Mr. Trump raised tariffs on washing machines, as we wrote on May 1. Mr. Trump may be pointing to the one-percentage point added to GDP in the first quarter due to an increase in net exports (exports less imports) as imports fell. But this came after a surge of imports in the second half of 2018 due to faster U.S. growth and as companies tried to get out ahead of Mr. Trump’s potential imposition of higher tariffs. Jobs in U.S. manufacturing, which relies on export markets, surged in 2017 and 2018 but that growth has slowed in recent months as tariff uncertainty has increased. The ultimate economic cost of tariffs is hard to measure precisely because it extends beyond the tariff rate to the impact of uncertainty on trade and investment decisions. But there’s not an economist we know — White House adviser Peter Navarro doesn’t count — who thinks that tariffs are a net economic benefit. Don Rissmiller of Strategas Research Partners estimates a hit to GDP this year of “about -0.1% point for every 2 months we go along with the higher China tariff rates, or roughly -0.5% for a year. A little more than half of this is through reduced confidence & lower investment.” That estimate sounds as good as any, unless the trade war gets worse. Mr. Trump may feel this is a price worth paying if it drives a deal that opens China’s market up to fairer rules of trade and investment. But the economic payoff is the deal, not the tariffs that are a deadweight economic loss. — The Wall Street Journal, May 13

Repeal hurts fight against Medicaid fraud A laska V oices E mily S tabile The state Legislature is leaving much-needed money on the table and hurting the state’s efforts to fight health care fraud by failing to stop the automatic repeal of the whistleblower provisions in Alaska’s three-year-old Medicaid fraud law. The Alaska Medicaid False Claims Act, which the Legislature passed with bipartisan support in 2016, encourages whistleblowers to sue, on behalf of the state, health care providers and other entities that are fraudulently siphoning off Medicaid funds. The law protects whistleblowers from job retaliation and provides financial rewards, if the government recovers funds as a result of their case. One incentive for adopting the statute was that it could increase the state’s share of recoveries in Medicaid fraud cases from 50 to 55%, with the federal government getting the remaining share. The federal government increases the share of recovered funds, with certain conditions, to encourage states to enact whistleblower laws to fight Medicaid fraud. That incentive is even more important as the state’s budget deficit grows. In addition, whistleblower programs are the most effective way to stop significant health care fraud by incentivizing insiders with detailed information about fraud to step forward. The federal government, for instance, has recovered

over $32 billion as a result of whistleblower cases exposing health care fraud that were brought under the federal False Claims Act, on which the Alaska law is modeled. Yet the Legislature has taken no action to revoke the automatic repeal of the whistleblower provisions that were part of the state statute when it was enacted. Unless the state Legislature takes steps to repeal the statutory “sunset” on the whistleblower provisions before the close of the legislative session, these provisions will cease to be effective as of July 1 this year. Like the federal False Claims Act, the Alaska Medicaid False Claims Act prohibits health care providers and others from knowingly submitting fraudulent claims for treatment of Medicaid patients. It also prohibits providers and others from creating false or fraudulent records to avoid or decrease payments owed to the government, such as excess payments that providers might have received. So much fraud is well hidden and disguised that enforcement agencies need insider information about these fraudulent schemes that only whistleblowers can provide. But whistleblowers risk their jobs and careers when they do step forward, so job protection measures and financial incentives are needed to help balance the significant risks whistleblowers are taking to help society. Health care providers and others who are found liable in false claims cases are required to pay three times the government’s losses plus penalties for each false claim, but most cases tend to settle for less. The whistleblower is rewarded with 15 to 30% of the recovery, depending on many factors, including whether the government intervenes in the case.

The reason for the automatic repeal of the whistleblower provisions, according to Sen. Pete Kelly’s sponsor statement in 2016, is to protect providers by assuring “frivolous lawsuits remain in check.” The bogeyman of “frivolous lawsuits” was raised by the health care industry and other opponents to the federal False Claims Act when it was enacted 33 years ago, yet the flood of frivolous lawsuits that opponents warned would come did not happen. Instead, the law has become the federal government’s most powerful weapon to fight healthcare fraud. In addition, there appears to be no sign that the whistleblower provisions of Alaska’s law are being used to file frivolous lawsuits. Given that cases under the law are filed “under seal” and remain confidential while the government investigates, the number of cases filed since the law was enacted less than three years ago is unknown. Therefore, it is far too soon for Alaska’s Legislature to evaluate the impact of the law, whether there have been any problems and whether repeal of the whistleblower provisions are warranted. At a time when Alaska faces a $1.6 billion budget deficit and severe funding cuts in public schools, health care and other important programs, the state Legislature should be looking for additional ways to stop fraud that is costing taxpayers money. Revoking the repeal of the whistleblower provisions of the state false claims law would be a good, no-cost way to start.

Architects of post-9/11 CIA interrogation program to testify By BEN FOX Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Two former CIA contractors who designed the harsh interrogation program used after the Sept. 11 attacks are being summoned to testify before the military tribunal at the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Psychologists James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen were among a dozen approved witnesses listed in a letter sent Monday by prosecutors to defense lawyers for five men charged in the 2001 attacks. Defense lawyers in the long-running Sept. 11 military tribunal want to question Mitchell and Jessen as part of an effort to exclude statements the defendants made to the FBI at Guantanamo after being subjected to brutal treatment in clandestine CIA detention facilities. The defense lawyers are also seeking to compel testimony from dozens

of current and former CIA officers who were involved with what the government called the "enhanced" interrogation program. Mitchell and Jessen gave depositions in a civil lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of three former U.S. prisoners, including one who died in custody. That case was settled for undisclosed terms in August 2017 and the two former contractors did not testify in court. "This will be the first time Dr. Mitchell and Dr. Jessen will have to testify in a criminal proceeding about the torture program they implemented," said James Connell, a lawyer for Ammar al Baluchi, one of the five Guantanamo prisoners facing trial by military commission for their alleged roles in the attack. Mitchell and Jessen helped design an interrogation program that included such abusive techniques as prolonged sleep deprivation, confinement in small,

enclosed spaces and waterboarding. The former contractors have defended their work, arguing it was legal and necessary. A Senate investigation in 2014 found that Mitchell and Jessen's techniques were not effective. At the earliest, the two former contractors would testify at a pretrial hearing scheduled for July, though it could be later. The proceedings have faced repeated delays, largely because of legal issues related to the treatment of the five defendants while in CIA custody. The defendants include Khalid Shaikh Mohammad, who has portrayed himself as the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijacking plot. He and his co-defendants were arraigned in May 2012 on charges that include terrorism and nearly 3,000 counts of murder in violation of the law of war. They could get the death penalty if convicted by the commission, which combines elements of military and civilian law.

subservience and complicity, one has little alternative but to include Alaska’s congressional contingent among those willing to become mere ’subjects’. That small-minded man, the one with those self-inflated delusions of his own grandeur, has no real wish to make America great again, his obvious aim is remake America in his false and wholly self-constructed image, put an end to the very founding

principles and ideals that formed this nation, and simultaneously erase all evidence of what America truly once was. America’s founders rejected the tyrannical rule of kings and fought to establish new, honorable, worthy, and more equitable ideals of governance, ideals which are still very much worth guarding and defending today.

Letter to the Editor We must resist tyranny One exceedingly small-minded man’s egomaniacal role playing, his seeing himself as America’s tyrant king, is as great a betrayal of this country’s founding tenets and doctrines as are the complicit betrayals of the many willingly clamoring to become nothing much more than that man’s most subservient of ’subjects’.

Nation Feds: DeVos used personal emails for work in ‘limited’ cases By COLLIN BINKLEY AP Education Writer

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has sometimes used her personal email accounts for government business and has not always properly saved the messages, according to an internal investigation released Monday. The agency’s Office of Inspector General, which was investigating at the request of House Democrats, said it searched the department’s email system and found a “limited” number of messages to or from DeVos’ personal accounts. In total, it said there were “fewer than 100” emails linked to four personal accounts. Most of the emails were from the first six months of 2017, soon after DeVos took office, and most were from a single person, the inquiry found. The person, who was not identified in the report, was writing to recommend candidates for agency jobs. Other emails were from people who congratulated DeVos on

her confirmation or offered other job advice. In total, investigators said they identified six emails sent by DeVos on private accounts, including five that involved official agency business. The inquiry concluded that there was no evidence of “active or extensive” use of DeVos’ personal accounts. The secretary’s office told investigators it was taking “additional steps to identify and preserve” emails in her personal accounts. A department spokeswoman declined to comment for this story. Under department rules, employees are forbidden from using personal emails for government business except in rare circumstances when their work accounts are unavailable. In those cases, employees are required to forward the messages to their work accounts within 20 days.

It added that “the secretary’s emails related to government business were not always being properly preserved.” The inspector general’s office urged the department to improve its training on the issue. It said there was no other evidence of irregularities around the use of personal emails. During his 2016 campaign, President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked

ing children.” John Sanders, CBP’s acting commissioner, said in a statement that his agency was “saddened by the tragic loss of this young man and our condolences are with his family.” “CBP is committed to the health, safety and humane treatment of those in our custody,” Sanders said. Border Patrol agents said Carlos was apprehended on May 13 in South Texas’ Rio Grande Valley after crossing the border illegally. He was taken to the agency’s central processing center in McAllen, Texas, a converted warehouse where hundreds of adults and children are held in large, fenced-in pens and sleep on mats.

Democratic rival Hillary Clinton over findings that she used a private email server for work while she was secretary of state. At rallies, Trump often called for her prosecution and led supporters in chants of “lock her up!” The Education Department review was requested in October 2017 by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn. The inspector general’s office said it was unable to begin work until “well into 2018” because of staffing challenges.

CBP said Carlos was processed as a minor unaccompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Federal law and CBP’s guidelines generally require that unaccompanied youth be transferred within three days to a facility operated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. A CBP official who declined to be named in order to brief reporters said Carlos was awaiting transfer to HHS custody on Thursday, three days after his apprehension. At the time of his death, Carlos was supposed to be sent to Southwest Key Casa Padre, a 1,400-person facility inside an old Walmart in Brownsville, Texas, the official said.

Mark Weber, a spokesman for HHS, did not address in a statement why the teenager wasn’t transferred sooner, but said a “minority of cases exceeding 72 hours have generally involved exceptional circumstances.” CBP said Carlos reported early Sunday morning that he was not feeling well and diagnosed with the flu by a nurse practitioner. He was prescribed the medicine Tamiflu, then transferred later Sunday to the Border Patrol station at Weslaco, Texas, to prevent his flu from spreading to other detainees. He was not hospitalized, according to the agency official who briefed reporters. The official said CBP facilities have medical providers who can monitor detainees, though the official did not know what specific symptoms Carlos had. Carlos had last been checked an hour before he was found unresponsive. Asked about the death, Trump blamed Democrats, saying they are refusing to approve changes that could improve the system. “The Democrats are really making it very, very dangerous for people by not approving simple quick 15 minutes legislation, we could have it all worked out,” Trump said.

Ex-White House lawyer won’t testify after Trump direction

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump directed his former White House Counsel Donald McGahn to defy a congressional subpoena Monday, citing a Justice Department legal opinion that maintains McGahn would have immunity from testifying about his work as a close Trump adviser. A lawyer for McGahn said he would follow the president’s wishes and skip a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.

Trump’s action, the latest in his efforts to block every congressional probe into him and his administration, is certain to deepen the open conflict between Democrats and the president. Democrats have accused Trump and Attorney General William Barr of trying to stonewall and obstruct Congress’ oversight duties. The House Judiciary Committee had issued a subpoena to compel McGahn to testify Tuesday, and the committee’s chairman, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., has threatened to hold McGahn in contempt

5th migrant child dies after detention by US border agents HOUSTON — A 16-year-old Guatemala migrant who died Monday in U.S. custody had been held by immigration authorities for six days — twice as long as federal law generally permits. The teenager, identified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection as Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez, was the fifth minor from Guatemala to die after being apprehended by U.S. border agents since December. Advocates demanded that President Donald Trump’s administration act to safeguard the lives of children in detention as border crossings surge and the U.S. Border Patrol detains thousands of families at a time in overcrowded facilities, tents, and outdoor spaces. “We should all be outraged and demand that those responsible for his well-being be held accountable,” said Efrén Olivares, a lawyer with the Texas Civil Rights Project. “If these were white children that were dying at this rate, people would be up in arms,” he said. “We see this callous disregard for brown, Spanish-speak-

of Congress if he doesn’t. Nadler has also suggested he may try and levy fines against witnesses who do not comply with committee requests. McGahn’s lawyer, William Burck, said in a letter to Nadler that McGahn is “conscious of the duties he, as an attorney, owes to his former client” and would decline to appear. Still, Burck encouraged the committee to negotiate a compromise with the White House, saying his client “again finds himself facing contradictory instructions from two co-equal branches of government.” McGahn was a key figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, describing ways in which the president sought to curtail that federal probe. Democrats hoped to question him as a way to focus attention on Mueller’s findings and further investigate whether Trump did obstruct justice. “This move is just the latest act of obstruction from the White House that includes its blanket refusal to cooperate with this committee,” Nadler said in a statement. “It is also the latest example of this Admin-

istration’s disdain for law.” Separately on Monday, a federal judge in Washington ruled against Trump in a financial records dispute, declaring the president cannot block a House subpoena for information from Mazars USA, a firm that has done accounting work for him and the Trump Organization. And a hearing is planned in New York on Wednesday in another case, this one involving an effort by Trump, his business and his family to prevent Deutsche Bank and Capital One from complying with subpoenas from two House committees for banking and financial records. If McGahn were to defy Trump and testify before Congress, it could endanger his own career in Republican politics and put his law firm, Jones Day, in the president’s crosshairs. Trump has mused about instructing Republicans to cease dealing with the firm, which is deeply intertwined in Washington with the GOP, according to one White House official and a Republican close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

WASHINGTON — A federal judge ruled against President Donald Trump on Monday in a financial records dispute with Congress and said lawmakers should get the documents they have subpoenaed. Trump called it a “crazy” decision that his lawyers would appeal. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta comes amid a widespread effort by the White House and Trump’s attorneys to refuse to cooperate with congressional requests for information and records. Earlier Monday, Trump directed former White House counsel Don McGahn to defy a congressional subpoena that had compelled McGahn, a pivotal figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. In ruling that Trump cannot block the financial records subpoena, Mehta said the Democratic-led House Oversight and Reform Committee had “valid legislative purposes” for its request and that it was not for him “to question whether the Committee’s actions are truly motivated by political considerations.” The committee has said the records will help it consider whether to strengthen ethics and disclosure laws, among other things, said Mehta, who was nominated to the bench by President Barack Obama. Trump pointed to his Democratic predecessor when he told reporters before leaving the White House for a Monday night rally in Pennsylvania that “we think it’s totally the wrong decision by, obviously, an Obamaappointed judge.” To the committee chairman, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the judge’s decision was a “resounding victory for the rule of law and our constitutional system of checks and balances.” Trump’s lawyers, in cases from Washington and New York challenging the Democrats’ demands, argued that congressional investigations are legitimate only if there is legislation that might result from them. “There is no possible legislation at the end of this tunnel,” his legal team said. The White House made the same argument Friday when Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he would not comply with a congressional subpoena for six years of Trump’s tax returns. In the New York case, Trump, his business and family want to prevent Deutsche Bank and Capital One from complying with House subpoenas for banking and financial records. A Wednesday court hearing is planned. In the Washington case, Trump and his business organization are trying to block the subpoena issued in April to Mazars USA, which has provided accounting services to Trump. Even before the ruling, legal scholars had said Trump’s argument had little merit and that Congress has broad powers to investigate. Mehta said in his 41-page opinion that there are limits on Congress’s authority to investigate, but those limits “do not substantially constrain Congress.” He said that as long as “Congress investigates on a subject matter on which ‘legislation could be had,’” it is following the Constitution. Mehta said that was true in this case, pointing to the committee’s memo outlining four areas of investigation, each of which he said Congress could legislate on. The judge cited the Watergate investigation involving President Richard Nixon and the Whitewater investigation involving President Bill Clinton. He said Congress “plainly views itself as having sweeping authority to investigate illegal conduct of a President, before and after taking office.” “This court is not prepared to roll back the tide of history,” he said.

Alabama police capture suspect; 1 officer slain, 2 wounded AUBURN, Ala. — A man who opened fire on police responding to a domestic disturbance report, killing one officer and wounding two others, was arrested Monday and charged with capital murder, authorities said. Grady Wayne Wilkes, 29, was being held without bond in the shooting death of Officer William Buechner, who had been with the Auburn Police Division for more than 13 years. Wilkes also was charged with attempted murder in the wounding of officers Webb Sistrunk and Evan Elliott, said Police Chief Paul Register. Both are expected to recover. District Attorney Brandon Hughes said authorities would seek capital punishment: “If you shoot a police officer, we’re going to seek the death penalty, absolutely.” The chief described Wilkes as a former member of the military who was working in the area and hadn’t had previous contact with police. The “Blue Alert” sent out after the officers were shot described him as wearing camouflage body armor and a helmet. But with helicopters hovering overhead, he didn’t get far. An intense, overnight manhunt led to Wilkes’ arrest about nine hours after the shootings, less than a mile from the Arrow Head Trailer Park, where the officers were hit. Information from a citizen helped police and U.S. marshals take him down. The chief called the arrest “relatively uneventful” and said no one was injured bringing Wilkes into custody. A booking photo released by police showed Wilkes with red marks and apparent bruises on his face. Auburn Police spokesman Lorenza Dorsey said the injuries occurred before police found him. The person who called police wasn’t hurt, the chief said, but Wilkes also was charged with domestic violence. Court records weren’t available immediately to show whether Wilkes had a lawyer. Register wouldn’t comment on details of the investigation. The Lee County coroner Bill Harris said the officer who was killed died in an emergency room. “This is probably the worst day of my time here,” Register said. “Words cannot express the loss for this family, our family and this community.” — The Associated Press

Ukraine president takes political stage in dramatic fashion

KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s new president, a comedian before he turned to statecraft, made a dramatic entrance to the political stage Monday by disbanding parliament minutes after his inauguration. Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who won 73% of the vote last month, justified his contentious decision on the grounds that the legislature, controlled by allies of the man he defeated, is riddled with self-enrichment. Elections to the Supreme Rada were sched-

uled for Oct. 27, which raised the prospect of Zelenskiy struggling to enact his agenda in the face of a hostile parliament over his first few months in power. A snap parliamentary election will be held within two months of his signing a formal dissolution decree. Zelenskiy, a comedian who played the role of a Ukrainian president on a popular TV show for years, is gambling that his popularity will see the next parliament dominated by supporters of his agenda to reform Ukraine and steer a new path with Russia. Zelenskiy said Ukrainian politics for the past quarter-

century created “opportunities for kickbacks, money laundering and corruption.” Zelenskiy’s efforts follow repeated attempts by the majority in the current parliament to stymie his campaign promise for a new election. Since last month’s election, Zelenskiy’s opponents in the Rada sought to put off the inauguration close to the May 27 deadline by which the parliament can be dissolved. And in a dramatic move last week, the Rada announced the collapse of the ruling parliamentary coalition. According to parliamentary rules, the chamber can’t be dissolved for 30 days after the governing coalition has been disbanded. Zelenskiy’s supporters argue that the Rada’s actions are legally void because the coalition had long ceased to exist and that the Ukrainian Constitution, unlike the Rada regulations, doesn’t contain such a rule. Volodymyr Fesenko, head of the Kiev-based think-tank Penta, said Zelenskiy’s announcement shows “political will for radical change.” “The legally dubious decision to disband parlia-

ment will certainly be contested in court but Zelenskiy has shown that it is going to be him who will lay down the agenda and that he will dominate the political landscape,” he said. Zelenskiy’s landslide victory reflected Ukrainians’ exhaustion with widespread corruption and the country’s political elite. Before disbanding parliament, the 41-year-old Zelenskiy upended other Ukrainian political traditions on inauguration day. He ditched the idea of a traditional motorcade to his inauguration, walking to the parliament in Kiev through a park packed with people. Flanked by four bodyguards, the beaming president-elect gave high-fives to some spectators, even stopping to take a selfie with one of them. At the end of his swearing-in ceremony, Zelenskiy asked the Supreme Rada to adopt a bill against illegal enrichment and support his motions to fire the country’s defense minister, the head of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) and the Prosecutor General. All are allies of Zelenskiy’s predecessor, Petro Poroshenko.

South Korea vows to send aid to North quickly, may send food The Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea vowed Monday to move quickly on plans to provide $8 million worth of medical and nutritional aid for North Korean children through U.N. agencies while it also considers sending broader food aid to the country, which says it is suffering its worst drought in decades. Lee Sang-min, spokesman for Seoul’s Unification Ministry, said the government will discuss its plans with the World Food Program and the United Nations Children’s Fund, through which the aid would be provided, so it reaches North Korean children and pregnant women quickly. South Korea is also trying to build public and political support for providing wider food aid to North Korea, either directly or through the WFP. North Korea’s state media said last week that the country was suffering its worst drought in more than a century amid reported food shortages. “The government will first discuss with international organizations over the provision of aid and take measures so that the support arrives (in North Korea)

quickly,” Lee said. “On the matter of direct aid, we will consider the matter while sufficiently garnering the opinions of our citizens.” South Korean President Moon Jae-in has expressed hopes that aid will help revive diplomacy and engagement with North Korea, which tapered off after a nuclear summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump in February broke down because of differences over sanctions relief and disarmament steps. Kim has since declared that the Trump administration has until the end of the year to come up with mutually ac-

ceptable terms for a deal to salvage the negotiations. While the United States has urged allies to maintain economic pressure on North Korea until it takes material steps toward relinquishing its nuclear weapons, White House spokesman Sarah Sanders recently said Washington has no plan to “intervene” if South Korea moves forward with food aid. But Moon’s government has yet to decide on concrete plans amid growing public frustration over Kim’s government, which recently resumed short-range missile tests that were apparently aimed at pressuring Washington and Seoul.

It is also unclear whether any aid package from South Korea would influence the behavior of North Korea, which has been demanding much bigger concessions from the South, such as resuming inter-Korean economic projects currently held back by the U.S.-led sanctions against the North. A North Korean propaganda website last week described the South Korean proposals for humanitarian aid as disrespectful and said Seoul was trying to sidestep fundamental issues with “hollow talk and boastful credit-taking.” North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency said last Wednesday that an average of 2.1 inches) of rain fell in North Korea from January to early May, which it said was the lowest level since 1982. Two days later, the state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper said the average precipitation of 2.2 inches from January to May 15 was the country’s lowest since 1917. U.N. food agencies said earlier this month that about 10 million people were facing “severe food shortages” after one of North Korea’s worst harvests in a decade.

Reports: Iran quadruples production of enriched uranium By NASSER KARIMI and JON GAMBRELL Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran quadrupled its uraniumenrichment production capacity amid tensions with the U.S. over Tehran’s atomic program, nuclear officials said Monday, just after President Donald Trump and Iran’s foreign minister traded threats and taunts on Twitter. Iranian officials made a point to stress that the uranium would be enriched only to the 3.67% limit set under the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, making it usable for a power plant but far below what’s needed for an atomic weapon. But by increasing production, Iran soon will go beyond the stockpile limitations set by the accord. Tehran has set a July 7 deadline for Europe to come up with new terms for the deal, or it will enrich closer to weaponsgrade levels in a Middle East already on edge. The Trump administration has

deployed bombers and an aircraft carrier to the region over still-unspecified threats from Iran. Already this month, officials in the United Arab Emirates alleged that four oil tankers were damaged in a sabotage attack; Yemeni rebels allied with Iran launched a drone attack on an oil pipeline in Saudi Arabia; and U.S. diplomats relayed a warning that commercial airlines could be misidentified by Iran and attacked, something dismissed by Tehran. A rocket landed Sunday near the U.S. Embassy in the Green Zone of Iraq’s capital of Baghdad, days after nonessential U.S. staff were ordered to evacuate from diplomatic posts in the country. No one was reported injured. Iraqi military spokesman Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasoul told The Associated Press that the rocket was believed to have been fired from eastern Baghdad, an area home to Iran-backed Shiite militias. The Iranian enrichment announcement came af-

Around the World Austrian government collapses over Ibiza video scandal VIENNA — Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz called time Monday on his coalition government with the far-right Freedom Party after its leader was shown on video appearing to offer favors to a purported Russian investor. Kurz said he was seeking the removal of the country’s interior minister, Freedom Party politician Herbert Kickl, to ensure an unbiased probe into the video. “I’m firmly convinced that what’s necessary now is total transparency and a completely and unbiased investigation,” Kurz told reporters in Vienna. The Freedom Party reacted by withdrawing its ministers from the government. “We won’t leave anyone out in the rain,” said the party’s interim leader, Norbert Hofer. Kickl’s removal, which must still be approved by Austria’s president, follows the resignation on Saturday of Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache, who was also Austria’s vice chancellor. That came a day after two German newspapers published a video showing Strache pandering to a woman claiming to be a Russian tycoon’s niece at a boozy gathering in Ibiza two years ago, shortly before national elections. Strache and party colleague Johann Gudenus are heard telling the woman that she can expect lucrative construction contracts if she buys an Austrian newspaper and supports the Freedom Party. They also discuss ways of secretly funneling money to the party. Gudenus, who was instrumental in arranging the meeting, has quit as leader of the party’s parliamentary group and is leaving the party. The Hamburg-based weekly Der Spiegel and Munich daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung said the meeting in Ibiza was likely a trap that Strache and Gudenus had fallen for. The papers refused to reveal the source of the video. Kurz noted that at the time the video was shot, Kickl was general-secretary of the Freedom Party and therefore responsible for its financial conduct. The chancellor added that in his conversations with Kickl and other Freedom Party officials following the video’s release, he “didn’t really have the feeling (they had) an awareness of the dimension of the whole issue.” The ouster of the Freedom Party from the government was a setback for populist and nationalist forces as Europe heads into the final days of campaigning for the European Parliament elections, which run Thursday through Sunday. Kurz has endorsed a hard line on migration and public finances, and he chose to ally with the Freedom Party after winning the 2017 election. The chancellor, who is personally popular, had said Saturday that “enough is enough” — a reference to a string of smaller scandals involving the Freedom Party that had plagued his government. In recent months, those have included a poem in a party newsletter comparing migrants to rats and questions over links to extreme-right groups. Kickl, a longtime campaign mastermind of the Freedom Party, had already drawn criticism over matters including a raid last year on Austria’s BVT spy agency, which opposition parties claimed was an attempt by the new government to purge domestic political enemies. Kickl’s party said he had done nothing wrong and sought to portray itself as the victim of a plot. The Russian government, meanwhile, said it couldn’t comment on the video “because it has nothing to do with the Russian Federation, its president or the government.” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said of the woman in the Strache video that set off the crisis: “We don’t know who that woman is and whether she’s Russian or not.” Pledging to ensure stability in Austria over the coming months, Kurz said vacancies in the government left by the Freedom Party’s departure would be filled with civil servants and technocrats. His government, meanwhile, may find it difficult to continue as planned until Austria holds early elections, likely in September. Opposition parties plan to call for a vote of no confidence in Kurz’s government in the coming days.

ter local journalists traveled to Natanz in central Iran, the country’s underground enrichment facility. There, an unidentified nuclear scientist gave a statement with a surgical cap and a mask covering most of his face. No one explained his choice of outfit, although Israel is suspected of carrying out a campaign targeting Iranian nuclear scientists. The state-run IRNA news agency later quoted Behrouz Kamalvandi, the

spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as acknowledging that capacity had been quadrupled. He said Iran took this step because the U.S. had ended a program allowing it to exchange enriched uranium to Russia for unprocessed yellowcake uranium, as well as ending the sale of heavy water to Oman. Heavy water helps cool reactors producing plutonium that can be used in nuclear weapons.

CAIRO — A roadside bomb hit a tourist bus on Sunday near the Giza Pyramids, wounding at least 17 people including tourists, Egyptian officials said. The officials said the bus was travelling on a road close to the under-construction Grand Egyptian Museum, which is located adjacent to the Giza Pyramids but is not yet open to tourists. The bus was carrying at least 25 people mostly from South Africa, officials added. The attack comes as Egypt’s vital tourism industry is showing signs of recovery after years in the doldrums because of the political turmoil and violence that followed a 2011 uprising that toppled former leader Hosni Mubarak. The officials said security forces cordoned off the site of the explosion and the wounded were taken to a nearby hospital. The explosion damaged a windshield of another car, they said. Footage circulated online shows shattered windows of the bus. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media. Atif Moftah, general supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum, said the explosion did not cause any damage to the museum, in a statement issued by the antiquities ministry. No group has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. It is the second to target foreign tourists near the famed pyramids in less than six months. In December, a bus carrying 15 Vietnamese tourists was hit by a roadside bomb, killing at least three of them. — The Associated Press

That came a day after two German newspapers published a video showing Strache pandering to a woman claiming to be a Russian tycoon’s niece at a boozy gathering in Ibiza two years ago, shortly before national elections. Strache and party colleague Johann Gudenus are heard telling the woman that she can expect lucrative construction contracts if she buys an Austrian newspaper and supports the Freedom Party. They also discuss ways of secretly funneling money to the party. Gudenus, who was instrumental in arranging the meeting, has quit as leader of the party’s parliamentary group and is leaving the party. The Hamburg-based weekly Der Spiegel and Munich daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung said the meeting in Ibiza was likely a trap that Strache and Gudenus had fallen for. The papers refused to reveal the source of the video. Kurz noted that at the time the video was shot, Kickl was general-secretary of the Freedom Party and therefore responsible for its financial conduct. The chancellor added that in his conversations with Kickl and other Freedom Party officials following the video’s release, he “didn’t really have the feeling (they had) an awareness of the dimension of the whole issue.” The ouster of the Freedom Party from the government was a setback for populist and nationalist forces as Europe heads into the final days of campaigning for the European Parliament elections, which run Thursday through Sunday. Kurz has endorsed a hard line on migration and public finances, and he chose to ally with the Freedom Party after winning the 2017 election. The chancellor, who is personally popular, had said Saturday that “enough is enough” — a reference to a string of smaller scandals involving the Freedom Party that had plagued his government. In recent months, those have included a poem in a party newsletter comparing migrants to rats and questions over links to extreme-right groups. Kickl, a longtime campaign mastermind of the Freedom Party, had already drawn criticism over matters including a raid last year on Austria’s BVT spy agency, which opposition parties claimed was an attempt by the new government to purge domestic political enemies. Kickl’s party said he had done nothing wrong and sought to portray itself as the victim of a plot. The Russian government, meanwhile, said it couldn’t comment on the video “because it has nothing to do with the Russian Federation, its president or the government.” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said of the woman in the Strache video that set off the crisis: “We don’t know who that woman is and whether she’s Russian or not.” Pledging to ensure stability in Austria over the coming months, Kurz said vacancies in the government left by the Freedom Party’s departure would be filled with civil servants and technocrats. His government, meanwhile, may find it difficult to continue as planned until Austria holds early elections, likely in September. Opposition parties plan to call for a vote of no confidence in Kurz’s government in the coming days.

Bomb hits tourist bus near Egypt’s Giza Pyramids, wounds 17

ter local journalists traveled to Natanz in central Iran, the country’s underground enrichment facility. There, an unidentified nuclear scientist gave a statement with a surgical cap and a mask covering most of his face. No one explained his choice of outfit, although Israel is suspected of carrying out a campaign targeting Iranian nuclear scientists. The state-run IRNA news agency later quoted Behrouz Kamalvandi, the

spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as acknowledging that capacity had been quadrupled. He said Iran took this step because the U.S. had ended a program allowing it to exchange enriched uranium to Russia for unprocessed yellowcake uranium, as well as ending the sale of heavy water to Oman. Heavy water helps cool reactors producing plutonium that can be used in nuclear weapons.

CAIRO — A roadside bomb hit a tourist bus on Sunday near the Giza Pyramids, wounding at least 17 people including tourists, Egyptian officials said. The officials said the bus was travelling on a road close to the under-construction Grand Egyptian Museum, which is located adjacent to the Giza Pyramids but is not yet open to tourists. The bus was carrying at least 25 people mostly from South Africa, officials added. The attack comes as Egypt’s vital tourism industry is showing signs of recovery after years in the doldrums because of the political turmoil and violence that followed a 2011 uprising that toppled former leader Hosni Mubarak. The officials said security forces cordoned off the site of the explosion and the wounded were taken to a nearby hospital. The explosion damaged a windshield of another car, they said. Footage circulated online shows shattered windows of the bus. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media. Atif Moftah, general supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum, said the explosion did not cause any damage to the museum, in a statement issued by the antiquities ministry. No group has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. It is the second to target foreign tourists near the famed pyramids in less than six months. In December, a bus carrying 15 Vietnamese tourists was hit by a roadside bomb, killing at least three of them. — The Associated Press

Warriors complete sweep of Blazers By ANNE M. PETERSON AP Sports Writer

PORTLAND, Ore. — Experience bred confidence for the Golden State Warriors, even when challenged by the upstart Portland Trail Blazers. No matter how far they were down, they’ve been through too much to ever think they’re out. “We just really understand what we’re capable of on both sides of the basketball,” Draymond Green said. “We’re never out of the fight. That’s just always our mindset.” The Warriors swept their way to a fifth straight NBA Finals, getting triple-doubles from Stephen Curry and Green in a 119-117 overtime victory on Monday night. The two-time defending champions overcame a double-digit deficit for the third straight game against the Blazers, back in the conference finals for the first time since 2000. Green had 18 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists, and made a key 3-pointer in overtime. Curry added 37 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. They became the first teammates to have triple-doubles

in the same playoff game. The Warriors will face the winner of the Eastern Conference finals between Toronto and Milwaukee. The Bucks lead that series 2-1 with Game 4 on Tuesday night in Canada. The Warriors came back from 17 down after erasing an 18-point deficit in Game 3 and a 17-point hole in Game 2. “We’ve been here before. We’ve seen everything, every experience you can imagine. So we relied on that,” Curry said. Playing without Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala and DeMarcus Cousins, the Warriors became the first team to reach five straight finals since the Boston Celtics went to 10 in a row from 1957-66. Damian Lillard, playing with separated ribs, had 28 points and 12 assists for Portland. He missed a 3-point attempt as time ran out in the extra period. Meyers Leonard added a career-high 30 points along with 12 rebounds. The Warriors were up 114-113 in the extra period after Green missed the first of a pair of free throws. CJ McCollum’s jumper from out front briefly gave Port-

land the lead but Alfonzo McKinnie’s basket put Golden State back ahead and Green made a 3-pointer to push it to 199-115 with 39 seconds left. Lillard made a layup and Curry missed a jumper to give Portland back the ball. Facing stifling defense from both Green and Klay Thompson, Lillard couldn’t get off a shot but the ball went out of bounds in the scramble. The Blazers got it back with 3.3 seconds left but Lillard’s final shot didn’t fall. Blazers coach Terry Stotts was asked if he was expecting another buzzer-beating winner from Lillard, who had a memorable 3-pointer at the buzzer to clinch the first-round series against Oklahoma City. “Yeah, I did. I thought it was going to — kind of meant to be,” Stotts said. “When he shot it, it had a good arc. I thought it had a chance.” The Blazers stretched the lead to 17 points in the third quarter, but the Warriors went on a 12-0 run to close within 95-90 early in the final period. Green’s long baseline jumper gave the Warriors a 108-106 lead

with 3:30 left. Lillard’s 3-pointer put the Blazers back ahead and Leonard’s dunk extended it to 111-108 with just under 2 minutes to go. After Thompson’s 3-pointer tied it up again both Curry and Lillard missed 3s. Curry made a 3 from the corner with 10.7 seconds left but he was called for traveling first and it didn’t count. Lillard’s layup bounced around the rim and out and the game went to overtime. Iguodala was out because of a sore left calf. The veteran swingman, who is averaging 10.1 points in the playoffs, was hurt in the second half of Saturday’s Game 3 victory. It was not known how long he’d be out, but the Warriors said an MRI Sunday was clear. Golden State was already missing Durant because of a sore right calf. It’s unknown when the twotime NBA Finals MVP will return. Also sitting is Cousins, who injured his left quadriceps in the opening round. “We’ve had guys step up all along this entire time and we’re going to look forward to those

guys continuing to step up, no matter what happens with the injuries that we have,” Green said. “You know, we’re trying to go win this thing. Never the goal is just to get there.” Lillard separated his ribs in Game 2 but was playing through the pain. He averaged 33 points in the first-round playoff series against Oklahoma City but struggled against Golden State’s defensive focus on him. Playing with urgency in an elimination game, Portland pulled in front 30-28 in the opening quarter on CJ McCollum’s layup and free throw, but Curry answered on the other end with a step-back 3-pointer. Portland went ahead 59-50 after back-to-back 3-pointers from Leonard, who finished with five 3s in the first half. Curry hit a 3-pointer with 2.6 seconds left in the half to close the Warriors within 69-65 at the break. Portland pushed the lead to 8372 on McCollum’s 3-pointer. After he made another 3 to push the lead to 91-78, he gestured to the crowd to make noise. McCollum finished with 26 points.

Raptors focus on resting up for Game 4 By IAN HARRISON Associated Press

TORONTO — For Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors, Monday was all about rest and recovery. Coming off a season in which he sat out 22 regularseason games and never played on back-to-back nights as part of a plan to manage his workload, Leonard played a playoff careerhigh 52 minutes in Toronto’s double-overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. The Raptors cut their deficit to 2-1 in the Eastern Conference finals, but it may have come at a cost. Leonard battled through both extra sessions while dealing with soreness in his leg. Pascal

Siakam also had a long night, playing 51 minutes for Toronto, which will try to even the series in Tuesday’s Game 4. Leonard didn’t speak to reporters Monday, but Raptors coach Nick Nurse said the star player isn’t injured, just fatigued. “The consensus today is he’s tired, and he’s got two days and will be ready to go,” Nurse said. “Those are kind of the words coming out of his mouth: little tired, but he’ll get his rest, got two days, and he’ll be ready.” Leonard played only nine games in 2017-18 because of a quadriceps injury. He was traded from San Antonio to Toronto after that season, and the Raptors made keeping him fresh a priority. He acknowledged feeling

NBC ready for Indy 500 By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer

Like most aspiring broadcasters of his era, Mike Tirico remembers tuning into ABC every Saturday to watch Wide World of Sports, listening in rapt attention to the dulcet tones of Jim McKay. “It was Channel 7 back in New York,” Tirico recalled fondly, “and this was a time that was almost unfathomable — pre-cable, no internet. Wide World of Sports shrunk the world. It took you everywhere.” One of the places was the Indianapolis 500. Tirico would watch A.J. Foyt and the Unser brothers and the rest of those famous daredevils as they pushed their cars to the limit at the Brickyard. McKay would provide the soundtrack, right along with the roar of the engines, of a spectacle that Tirico remembers vividly all these years later. Now he’s ready to settle into McKay’s old seat. After airing every Indy 500 from 1965 through last season, ABC was outbid for the rights by NBC, giving the network exclusivity over the IndyCar Series. And that means Tirico, who spent 25 years with ESPN before heading to NBC in 2016, will host the broadcast Sunday alongside Danica Patrick and a host of other celebrities, analysts and reporters. “It was the one race as a family we’d sit down and watch, and now knowing people will be doing that at home, it gives me a chill,” Tirico said. “Just seeing with my own eyes what I’ve seen for years on TV, it’s hard to imagine all those seats being full, as far as the eye can see.” The Indy 500 falls within a busy three months for Tirico, beginning with the Masters and including the Stanley Cup Final, horse racing’s Triple Crown and the French Open in Paris. Asked where it ranks among those signature events, Tirico said right at the top. “When I got hired here,” he said, “three of the things I talked about that I had never done in the business were the Kentucky Derby, the Olympics and the Indy 500. When they asked me if I would be host, that really does complete the list of significant sporting events I’ve wanted to go to.”

sore after scoring 36 points in Game 3, including eight in the second overtime, but insisted he’d be ready to go on Tuesday. The Bucks are still expecting Leonard to be at his best. “He’s going to shoot with one, two, sometimes even three or four guys on him,” Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton said. “I keep saying this over and over: He’s a great player. You can’t stop great players. You can only make it tough on them.” Leonard isn’t just an offensive force. A two-time Defensive Player of the Year, he helped limit Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo to 12 points on 5-for-16 shooting in Game 3. Raptors guard Kyle Lowry called Leonard “probably the

best two-way basketball player in the NBA.” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer was asked Monday whether his team might fare better in Game 4 with Leonard battling fatigue. “I don’t know that we can go any harder at Kawhi than we are,” Budenholzer said. “We’ve been throwing a lot at Kawhi, and we’ll continue to do that.” CHART TOPPER Sunday marked the sixth time in 15 playoff games with Toronto that Leonard has scored 35 or more. That gives Leonard as many 35-point games in the playoffs as former Raptors stars Vince Carter and DeMar DeRozan combined. Carter (15 career

playoff games with the Rap- points in Game 3, while tors) and DeRozan (51) each Brogdon — a starter in the had three such games. regular season before he was sidelined by a foot injury — had 20.

Sanchez rallies Yankees past Orioles By The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Gary Sánchez hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning to cap a New York rally fueled by Baltimore gaffes, and the Yankees pulled out a 10-7 victory Monday night. Gleyber Torres homered twice for the Yankees, who trailed 6-1 after four innings and 7-3 after six. At that point, the Orioles fulfilled their stature as the team with the worst record in the AL. They threw to the wrong base, missed popups and were outscored 7-0 over the final three innings. New York scored in the seventh on an overthrow by left fielder Dwight Smith Jr., who fell for a fake tag-up on third base. In the ninth, right fielder Joey Rickard threw to the wrong base on a single, Smith heaved the ball past the plate on Aaron Hicks’ tying sacrifice fly, catcher Pedro Severino misjudged a foul pop that preceded a two-out walk to Luke Voit and Sánchez connected off Mychal Givens (0-1). Zach Britton (2-0) worked the eighth and Aroldis Chapman got three outs for his 12th save. Hanser Alberto and Renato Núñez homered for the Orioles. Yankees starter J.A. Happ allowed six runs and a pair of solo homers in 3 2/3 innings, but New York’s comeback got him a nodecision.

Peacock (5-2) allowed two hits in five innings. Ryan Pressly pitched a scoreless eighth to extend his MLBrecord streak of appearances without allowing a run to 40, and Roberto Osuna gave up a hit in the ninth, preserving the shutout and earning his 12th save. The White Sox used five pitchers on a bullpen day which began with Ryan Burr (1-1). He allowed one hit and one run — which was unearned, in two innings.

METS 5, NATIONALS 3

NEW YORK — Amed Rosario and Pete Alonso homered in the first inning as New York, after learning embattled manager Mickey Callaway is staying around, broke out of its offensive funk a bit to beat Washington. Carlos Gómez cracked an RBI double off the wall for his first Mets hit in 12 years, and slumping Todd Frazier had a run-scoring single to help New York (21-25) stop a fivegame losing streak.

Anthony Rendon homered and Yan Gomes had three hits for Washington, including an RBI single. Patrick Corbin (4-2) was tagged for four runs and six hits over five innings. Pinch-hitter Dominic Smith delivered a two-out RBI single in the eighth on the first pitch from lefthander Tony Sipp, who came off the injured list earlier in the day.

TWINS 3, ANGELS 1 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Miguel Sano’s two-run homer in the eighth inning lifted the Twins over the Angels. Sano has homered twice in the past three games.

Eddie Rosario singled with one out in the eighth before Sano hit Ty Buttrey’s fastball over the wall in rightcenter. It is the first home run Buttrey (2-2) has allowed in 38 relief appearances over two seasons. Sano’s go-ahead shot came after the Angels tied it in the seventh on Tommy La Stella’s two-out single to score Brian Goodwin.

Lakers’ drama overshadows Vogel’s introduction EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Frank Vogel’s determination to build “organizational togetherness” within the Los Angeles Lakers met the reality of the team’s current dysfunction Monday. Vogel’s introduction as the Lakers’ coach was almost overshadowed by comments made earlier by Magic Johnson. The former Lakers great appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” and said general manager Rob Pelinka “betrayed” him, which was one of the reasons he resigned as president of basketball operations. That put the GM in the position of using most of Vogel’s 26-minute news conference

to respond. Pelinka said he has talked to Johnson several times since his resignation on April 9 and said Johnson’s comments surprised him. “It’s saddening and disheartening to think he believes things are a misperception,” Pelinka said. “I think all of us in life probably have been through things where maybe there’s third party whispers or ‘he said, she said’ things that aren’t true.” LeBron James watched the news conference from the back of the gym at the team’s facility, but did not shake hands with Vogel and declined interview requests.

He shot baskets on another court while Vogel did one-onone interviews with television reporters. Vogel, who replaced Luke Walton, said the news conference took on a different tone than he imagined at the start of the day. “It was definitely different than I expected and different than I’ve ever been a part of,” Vogel said. “But I understand the line of questioning in light of the events of this morning. So you just roll with the punches. “The perception about our team is not always the same as reality and you block out the noise.”

Johnson stunned everyone by giving up his role during an impromptu news conference roughly 90 minutes before the regular-season finale. He said he wanted to fire Walton but that others blocked that. Walton did end up being dismissed before being hired by Sacramento. “I started hearing, ‘Magic, you’re not working hard enough’ and ‘Magic’s not in the office.’ People around the Lakers office were telling me Rob was saying things, and I didn’t like those things being said behind my back,” Johnson said. “So I started getting calls from my friends outside of basketball saying those

things now were said to them outside of basketball now, just not in the Lakers office anymore.” Pelinka said owner Jeanie Buss has eliminated Johnson’s position and the Lakers chain of command is now

clearer. “When it comes to a basketball decision I collaborate with the staff, many of whom are at this press conference today. Then I make a recommendation to Jeanie and she blesses that or not,” he said.

Today in History Today is Tuesday, May 21, the 141st day of 2019. There are 224 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 21, 1932, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean as she landed in Northern Ireland, about 15 hours after leaving Newfoundland. On this date: In 1542, Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto died while searching for gold along the Mississippi River. In 1863, the Seventh-day Adventist Church was officially organized. In 1868, Ulysses S. Grant was nominated for president by the Republican national convention in Chicago. In 1881, Clara Barton founded the American Red Cross. In 1924, in a case that drew much notoriety, 14-year-old Bobby Franks was murdered in a “thrill killing” carried out by University of Chicago students Nathan Leopold Jr. and Richard Loeb (Bobby’s cousin). In 1927, Charles A. Lindbergh landed his Spirit of St. Louis monoplane near Paris, completing the first solo airplane flight across the Atlantic Ocean in 33 1/2 hours. In 1941, a German U-boat sank the American merchant steamship SS Robin Moor in the South Atlantic after the ship’s passengers and crew were allowed to board lifeboats. In 1945, actors Humphrey Bogart, 45, and Lauren Bacall, 20, were married at Malabar Farm in Lucas, Ohio (it was his fourth marriage, her first, and would last until Bogart’s death in 1957). In 1972, Michelangelo’s Pieta, on display at the Vatican, was damaged by a hammer-wielding man who shouted he was Jesus Christ. In 1979, former San Francisco City Supervisor Dan White was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the slayings of Mayor George Moscone (mahs-KOH’-nee) and openly gay Supervisor Harvey Milk; outrage over the verdict sparked rioting. (White was sentenced to seven years and eight months in prison; he ended up serving five years and committed suicide in 1985.) In 1991, former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated during national elections by a suicide bomber. In 1998, a teen gunman opened fire inside Thurston High School in Springfield, Oregon, killing two students, a day after he killed his parents. (The shooter was sentenced to nearly 112 years in prison.) In the wake of deadly protests, Indonesian President Suharto stepped down after 32 years in power. Ten years ago: A day after the Senate voted to keep the Guantanamo prison camp open, President Barack Obama made his case for closing the facility, denouncing what he called “fear-mongering” by political opponents; Obama made his case moments before former Vice President Dick Cheney delivered his own address defending the Bush administration’s creation of the camp. A 66-year-old woman with terminal cancer became the first person to die under Washington state’s new assisted suicide law. Five years ago: With outrage mounting over veterans’ health care, President Barack Obama declared that misconduct alleged at VA hospitals would not be tolerated. China signed a $400 billion gas deal with Russia, binding Moscow more closely to Beijing amid international sanctions for Russian actions in Ukraine. Wendell Scott became the first African-American driver to be elected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. One year ago: Syria’s military captured an enclave in southern Damascus from Islamic State militants after a monthlong battle, bringing the entire capital and its suburbs under full government control for the first time since the civil war began in 2011. A divided Supreme Court ruled that businesses can prohibit their workers from banding together in disputes over pay and conditions in the workplace, finding that individual employees can be forced to use arbitration, not the courts, to air complaints about wages and overtime. Gina Haspel was sworn in as CIA director. Netflix announced a multi-year deal with Barack and Michelle Obama; there were no details announced on what shows they would make. The U.S. Postal Service announced that it would soon issue its first scratch-and-sniff stamps, featuring illustrations of ice pops. Today’s Birthdays: Rhythm-and-blues singer Ron Isley (The Isley Brothers) is 78. Rock musician Hilton Valentine (The Animals) is 76. Musician Bill Champlin is 72. Singer Leo Sayer is 71. Actress Carol Potter is 71. Former Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., is 68. Actor Mr. T is 67. Music producer Stan Lynch is 64. Actor Judge Reinhold is 62. Actordirector Nick Cassavetes is 60. Actress Lisa Edelstein is 53. Actress Fairuza Balk is 45. Rock singer-musician Mikel Jollett (Airborne Toxic Event) is 45. Rapper Havoc (Mobb Deep) is 45. Rock musician Tony LoGerfo (Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real) is 36. Actor Sunkrish Bala is 35. Actor David Ajala is 33. Actress Ashlie Brillault is 32. Country singer Cody Johnson is 32. Actor Scott Leavenworth is 29. Actress Sarah Ramos is 28. Thought for Today: “Originality does not consist in saying what no one has ever said before, but in saying exactly what you think yourself.” -- James Stephens, Irish poet and novelist (1882-1950).

Man plans to bequest money to the soul mate he deserted riage in any way, but I cannot help but think that despite my good intentions it might cause a disturbance in their relationship. Am I doing the right thing, and is there a better way to do it? -- “JOHN BERESFORD TIPTON JR.” DEAR “MR. TIP- Abigail Van Buren TON”: Your letter brings to mind a television series from years ago called “The Millionaire.” Each week the representative of an eccentric multimillionaire, John Beresford Tipton Jr., would hand some deserving person a check for $1 million in the hope that it would improve the person’s life. Ask your financial adviser or the person who will administer your estate how to discreetly pull off an anonymous bequest, and I’m sure the person can make it happen. DEAR ABBY: For a year and a half, my wife and I have been looking forward to attending our granddaughter’s college graduation. (She will be graduating on June 1.) When I called my son to discuss hotel and other arrangements, he told me my granddaughter initially was allowed only

Tonight: Add in some naughtiness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You could be tired and withdrawn. You might not be sure what needs to happen next. Get feedback and opinions first. Take your time mulling over possibilities. You might not be ready to make a decision just yet. Tonight: Head home early. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Speak your mind quietly yet with authority. A partner is only too happy to give you feedback. Creativity solves problems quickly. You find another person at a distance to be irritating. Touch base with this person to anchor him or her in the issue. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH You could be tired and wanting to take on a project. Be careful because this project could cost you in time, energy or finances. Weigh the pros and cons of heading down this path. Tonight: Get a partner to verbalize his or her anger and its source. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You feel more energized than in the recent past. Your instincts could be off when dealing with a creative idea. It might not be as easily materialized as you might like. Another person close to you could be irritated. Tonight: Take the lead. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You might be tired and somewhat withdrawn. Much is going on behind the scenes, which you are going over in your mind. Reach out for a friend who might have some important feedback. You could also easily lose your temper. Tonight: As you like it.

THE YEAR IN NUMBERS Dear Heloise: I love reading your column in the Orange County Register here in Southern California. A reader asked what is the proper way to say the year. I spent 25 years as a professional broadcaster, and I tend to keep it less on the slang side and more on the educated side. So for me, it’s “two thousand nineteen.” Consider this admonition by my high school math teacher: There should be no separation when saying numbers. Would you like “twenty nineteen” dollars, or “two thousand nineteen” dollars? -- Adam in Laguna Hills, Calif. AD MAD Dear Heloise: I’m a paying customer for cable TV, and it seems commercials are taking over the programs I try to watch. I counted 15 TV commercials on one break. I should not have to pay for or endure so many annoying and ridiculous commercials! ENOUGH! -- Terry V. in New Orleans LIGHTS OUT Dear Heloise: When I am staying in a motel room, I find that the heavy window curtains don’t close completely, letting light in through the opening. I take a clothes hanger with clips and clasp the curtains together. As a result, I have privacy and a dark room in which to sleep! -- Dianne G., Canton, Ohio One of my favorite travel hints! -- Heloise PAY IT FORWARD Dear Heloise: Many gift cards are never fully used because only a small amount remains on the card. My solution: Hand the card to someone else in the store. It’s better to have it used, and it’s always appreciated. -- Toni, via email

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, May 21, 2019: This year, you evolve into a more direct, verbal person. You will not hold yourself back as much. Others value your feedback. If you’re single, your love of flirting emerges, though you are quite likely to meet someone of special life significance. If you’re attached, the two of you move to a new level of understanding. You respect each other’s differences. CAPRICORN tends to hold you back. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You have a lot to say, and you want your words heard. You feel the topic is important and need to air it out. Finances and decisions made accordingly could cause stress. Once you air out the topic, others respond. Tonight: You will be heard. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Reach out for someone at a distance. You do not need to see eye to eye with this person to be friends. You like what his or her imagination offers. Someone from a distance could be on the warpath. Tonight: Work with others in the face of a disagreement. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You feel energized and directed. You can take on a major project with the expectation of finishing it appropriately. You might not see eye to eye with a loved one. Both of you have validity in what you are saying. Tonight: With a favorite person. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Curb a tendency to be overly reactive. If someone shares a problem, listen and put your feelings on the side. You will get to deal with them at a later point, though you might need to employ self-discipline. Tonight: Check out a rumor or an unusual idea. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might become more sensitive and serious-minded. You have a lot to do ahead of you, with a tight schedule. Act; do not fuss. You could be irritated by someone in your day-to-day life. Express your feelings. Tonight: Burning the midnight oil. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Tap into your creativity and understand where others might be coming

three tickets, but managed to get two more tickets from students whose relatives could not attend. He then informed me that he, his ex-wife, his son, his ex-wife’s sister and the sister’s livein boyfriend will be using the tickets. I feel very hurt that the ex’s sister and boyfriend got tickets instead of me and my wife. We had planned to give my granddaughter $500 for graduation. After this slap in the face, should we give her the $500, which we have given to all our other grandchildren upon their graduation? -- LEFT OUT IN FLORIDA DEAR LEFT OUT: Yes, you should. Although you are right to feel hurt and offended, the blame should rest with your son and not your granddaughter, and she should not be penalized for it.

DEAR ABBY: Many years ago, I had a romance with a young girl in a faraway town. After a year, thinking I could do better, I moved on. With the benefit of hindsight, I now realize she stood head and shoulders above all the others, and I had tragically discarded my soul mate. By chance, I ended up settling in the same city as she. She eventually married and raised a family. Now and then we would run into each other, exchange a few friendly words and a quick hug, then move on. On one of those occasions, she was accompanied by her husband and introduced me as a “friend” from back in our younger days. Although he was cordial, I could see in his expression that he wondered if perhaps there wasn’t more to the story than that. In the course of getting my papers and estate arranged, it is clear I have done fairly well in terms of money. I divorced years ago and have no children. I am leaving money to a relative or two, some assorted charities and, for two reasons, I have decided to leave a reasonably large sum to my soul mate. For one, she was, and is, perhaps the finest person I have ever known. Second, it is obvious to me that they can use the money. But what happens when this windfall drops out of the sky into their laps? I have no wish to cause problems in their apparently happy mar-

Advice on dining out with your dog American Kennel Club

The warm months are finally upon us. As we spend more time outside enjoying the weather, we want our pups to come along, too, and dog-friendly restaurants are becoming ever more popular. Whether it’s a weekend brunch or a quiet dinner,

the American Kennel Club offers the following tips on how to safely dine out with your dog: —Pack a doggy dish and water. Outdoor dining usually occurs during the summer months, which means that it can get pretty hot, especially while sitting outside in the sun. Make sure you have

a bowl and that you bring water, or ask the server for some. If your dog seems to be panting heavily, it’s time to ask for the check. —Puppy-proof. Before looking at the menu, do a scan of the area. Inspect under the table and chairs and anywhere within reach of your dog to make sure there’s nothing he can

snack on. In addition to fattening foods that may cause pancreatitis or other health issues, other foods could make your dog sick, such as raisins or chocolate. —Bring an interactive toy. You might be having a wonderful time catching up and gossiping with your friends, but to your

Meet Annabelle Adorable little girl about a year old, Annabelle is a sweetheart of the first degree. She is so easy and quiet and gentle. She walks into the house and soon you would find that you have a forever kitty who fits in so well. Annabelle once lived outside and doesn’t want to do that again, but she will want to go outside to play with her kitty friends when spring comes.

other dogs, strangers, loud noises or crowds shouldn’t be brought to restaurants until they are properly socialized. You want your pet to feel comfortable in this kind of environment. That way, you (and fellow diners) can enjoy your meals in peace, and your dog isn’t placed in an uncomfortable environment.
