In the news US attorney general heading to Alaska for tribal roundtable ANCHORAGE— U.S. Attorney General William Barr is heading to Alaska to meet with Native leaders and other officials on public safety concerns, including the disproportionately high rates of violence and sexual assaults. The Department of Justice says Barr will participate Wednesday in an Alaska Native justice roundtable. He will also visit the state crime lab. The DOJ says the visit begins a series of meetings with Native leaders as well as federal, state and local officials in the state. The roundtable comes after Barr said in April that he had scheduled a visit to Alaska to address the problem of violence against Alaska Native women.

Weekend rains push Anchorage to new May precipitation record ANCHORAGE — Alaska’s largest city has set a record for rain in May. The Anchorage Daily News reports a strong Memorial Day weekend storm helped beat a 30-year-old record for May rain. National Weather Service meteorologist Lucas Boyer says that as of 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Anchorage had received 2.08 inches of rainfall for the month. The previous record set in 1989 was 1.93 inches. Anchorage precipitation records date back to 1952. May is generally considered a dry month for Anchorage. The average rainfall is 0.56 inches. — Associated Press

Getting ready for court

Crime bill sent to Juneau lawmakers prepare for legal fight over education governor for approval

By Becky Bohrer Associated Press

JUNEAU — The Alaska Legislature, locked in a fight with Gov. Mike Dunleavy over education funding, moved one step closer Tuesday to a lawsuit over the issue. The House and Senate voted to give the committee that handles legislative business, the Legislative Council, authority to sue. Sen. Gary Stevens, the Legislative Council chair, told reporters a lawsuit could be filed if the money for K-12 schools is not released. Stevens, a Kodiak Republican, said the council composed of House and Senate members would have to vote to move forward. Lawmakers supporting the authorization cast the dispute as a separation of powers issue and an effort to get clarity on a practice

known as forward funding. “There’s no reason we shouldn’t want this question asked and answered

by the courts,” said Republican Rep. Chuck Kopp of Anchorage, a member of the bipartisan House major-

ity coalition’s leadership. He said this is a legal issue, not a political one. See COURT, page A2

Two weeks into the Special Legislative Session, the Alaska Legislature has finally sent a crime bill to the governor’s desk for approval. After several weeks of debate and the formation of a conference committee by the two chambers, a final version of House Bill 49 passed the House of Representatives 36-2 May 20 and passed the Senate unanimously yesterday. Gov. Mike Dunleavy said in a press availability session yesterday that he intends to sign the bill into law. HB 49 addresses several areas of public safety and criminal justice and effectively repeals and replaces See BILL, page A16

Voters unlikely to see K-Selo bonds on the ballot By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

The borough is still trying to find the money to build a new school in Kachemak-Selo, although voters shouldn’t expect to see another bond package

on the ballots. At the May 21 Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting, Mayor Charlie Pierce said he met with staff concerning the recent extension to the $10 million state grant, which would help build a new school. The

state grant requires a 35% match, or around $5 million from the borough. Pierce said he doesn’t plan to put up another bond package on the ballots to cover the match. “There was a request made that I put it out for

bonding again,” Pierce said. “I don’t think we’re there. I don’t think we’re anywhere near prepared for putting this project on the street for a bond. I think it’s failed.” K-Selo has been in need of a new school for nearly 10 years. In 2011, the Old

Believer village petitioned the school board for a new facility. In 2016, the state appropriated $10,010,000 for construction of the school, but in order to proceed the borough needed to provide a match. Borough residents See KSELO, page A2

Road construction to continue through week Lawmakers

endorse tribal push to rename Saginaw Bay

By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Two major maintenance projects taking place on central peninsula roadways are expected to continue into next week. The Department of Transportation currently has a bridge crew repairing a portion of Bridge Access Road, as well as a crew from maintenance and operations repairing culverts on Mile 19 of the Kenai Spur Highway, which is in the South Miller Loop area. Shannon McCarthy, administrative operations manager at DOT, said that an inspection of Bridge Access Road last August showed damage to the bridge’s expansion joints. Since the damage was found late in construction season, the repairs had to wait until this year. Expansion joints are structures that allow for flexing and movement of materials — such as

concrete, metal and asphalt — as they freeze and thaw throughout the year. Drivers may recognize the expansion

joints as the metal ruts in the road that cause a slight bump when driving over them, McCarthy said. McCarthy said

Rescued bearded seal pup gets name By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

A bearded seal pup that has been recovering at the Alaska SeaLife Center is out of quarantine and has officially been given a name: Saktuliq. Saktuliq was found on the shores of the village of Shaktoolik in early April and was brought to the SeaLife Center on April 13. A few local school children had taken it upon themselves to protect Saktuliq from being harassed by people or pets before she was eventually transported See SEAL, page A16

JUNEAU (AP) — The Alaska House has endorsed a tribe’s effort to change the name of Saginaw Bay to Skanax Bay. Tribal leaders are pushing the change because the body of water off Kuiu Island was named for a U.S. warship that destroyed three Tlingit villages in 1869 that are near present-day Kake in southeast Alaska, CoastAlaska reported Monday. The House passed a resolution 37-0 endorsing the name change to Skanax, the Tlingit word for security. The Tlingit villages east of Sitka destroyed by the U.S.S. Saginaw were deserted in advance of the

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday against an Alaska resident in a case that gives law enforcement officers significant protection from people who want to sue and claim they were arrested in retaliation for something they said or wrote. In an opinion, the justices said that because the officers had probable cause to arrest Russell Bartlett, his lawsuit fails. Bartlett was arrested in 2014 at Arctic Man, an an-

nual, weeklong winter sports festival that draws thousands to the remote Hoodoo Mountains near Paxton, Alaska. In his opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts described the festival as “an event known for both extreme sports and extreme alcohol consumption.” “The mainstays are highspeed ski and snowmobile races, bonfires, and parties,” he wrote, adding that for that week the “campground briefly becomes one of the largest and most raucous cities in Alaska.” Bartlett was arrested for See CASE, page A16

voted down the match bond package, which was nearly $5.5 million, last October. Pierce said he hopes to get local lawmakers to weigh in on how the borough should proceed. “Hopefully we’ll get some of the legislative representatives together and talk about the direction we can go with this project,” Pierce said at the meeting. “What we need to do is sit down with our elected officials from the state and get some direction from them about what variables they have.

Rep. Tammie Wilson, a North Pole Republican and another coalition leader, said lawmakers did not start this fight. But legislators who voted against the authorization said the issue could be resolved without litigation by putting the money in the budget now. Rep. DeLena Johnson, a minority Republican from Palmer, urged her colleagues not to waste time and money with a lawsuit. Lawmakers last year approved funding for public schools for the fiscal year starting July 1, 2019, plus an additional $30 million to be distributed among districts. That move was not vetoed by then-Gov. Bill Walker. But Attorney General Kevin Clarkson has said the Legislature’s action last year has the effect of improperly binding a future legislature and governor and violates a constitutional prohibition against dedicating state revenues. “This is a battle over whether the annual budgeting process envisioned by our founders and set forth

assembly member Kelly Cooper addressed concerns about the new school’s potential price tag and size. The current school in Kachemak-Selo is made up of three borough-leased buildings and serves about 46 students. In a December memo to the assembly, the borough noted the current school has deteriorated to the point that it is no longer viable as an educational facility. The proposed new K-12 school would be 15,226 square feet, the memo said. Some residents have expressed concerns about the $16 million costs for the school, given its remoteness and small student population. However, a state statute based on the number of students dictates the size of the school, and the borough

does not have the flexibility to downsize the building if they’re using bond money. ”We do have a statutory requirement to provide facilities for people who want to get an education in Alaska, whether they’re remote or on the road system,” assembly member Kelly Cooper said at the assembly meeting. “I don’t think anyone in the southern peninsula wants us to build a facility that’s much more than what they need. I think the residents in that community and the voters want us to be responsible with that money and provide a good safe place to get the education they need.” One of the largest drivers of cost comes from the remote nature of the village. The community sits at the bottom of a steep bluff only accessi-

ble by a dirt switchback trail, too narrow and steep for most vehicles to traverse. The borough initially considered upgrading the road to borough standards but found it would be too expensive. Pierce suggested the borough commission concept drawings for a potential school to get a better idea of the cost. “We should consider spending dollars up front to do some actual conceptual drawings and design work at an architect or with some engineers that really look at it, look at the site and put some better numbers to it,” Pierce said. Pierce said he would continue to meet with borough staff and assembly members to address the community school.

in the Alaska Constitution requires the Legislature and the governor every year to consider how to spend the revenues available to them and prohibits setting aside future revenues in a future fiscal year,” Clarkson said in a recent opinion piece. The administration has argued the appropriation approved last year is not valid and said it needs a valid appropriation to legally distribute the money.

The Legislature during the recently ended regular session and the current special session has stood behind its actions last year and refused to budge, leaning on the opinion of its own legal counsel. Dunleavy said getting the issue worked out is important “so that we know what we can do moving forward.” One idea floated by the administration is the inclusion of about $1.2 billion for

school and student transportation funds in the budget and withholding the additional $30 million to trigger a potential lawsuit. Dunleavy told reporters that holding such a “small portion” of the funding could be an easier way to bring about a clarifying lawsuit. But he said the administration would prefer to see education funded “in a manner we believe it should be funded.”



Donnis Thompson

September 28, 1928 - May 20, 2019 Longtime Alaskan and Nikiski resident Donnis Thompson, 90, a true Alaskan pioneer, passed away Monday, May 20, 2019 at home. She was an amazing and beloved wife, mother, stepmother, grandmother, great grandmother, author, politician, realtor, and business owner and operator with her husband Stan Thompson. Donnis was born Sept. 28, 1928 in Stockton, Illinois. She left Cayuga, Indiana and came to Fairbanks, Alaska in 1951. She married Stan and moved to Kenai in 1953. They homesteaded in Nikiski in 1959. She was the author of two published books, Loon Lake Mystery and Mystery at the Alaskan Fish Site. She also authored many articles for magazines such as Redbook, Vogue, Women’s Day, Alaska Sportsman, contributed to Alaskan historical books, as well as various newspapers including Alaska’s Senior Voice for many years. She assisted Stan when he was U.S. Commissioner. They had businesses including Kenai Korners Building Materials for 18 years - ’53 to ’71 and Peninsula Greenhouse for 5 years, Kenai Realty, and setnet fishing. In 1982 Donnis was the first woman in Alaska to run for Lt. Governor on the Libertarian ticket. She was president of the Nikishka Chamber of Commerce in ’84. She served on the Post- Secondary Education Commission for 5 years from ’77 to ‘82, and was a recipient of the Anchorage Athena Award in ’91 for distinguishing herself in business and community service. Donnis was a lifelong student always staying current on local, national, and world affairs, a sharp historian, a wonderful debater, singer of 1000 songs, hilarious storyteller, an engaging conversationalist, a successful moose hunter, and was so proud when she finally earned her bachelor’s degree at the age of 61. For many years she has been actively involved with North Star United Methodist Church. Her family and friends will continue to miss her as she had a personality larger than life, full of a sense of awe and adventure, extending courtesy to all, with a great sense of humor, and a sharp mind to the very end. Donnis was the epitome of love, grace, intelligence, and loyalty. Donnis was preceded in death by her husband, Stanley Thompson and her son, Tollef Thompson. She is survived by sons and daughters-in-law, Tucker and Colette Thompson of Nikiski, and Tok and Cecilia Thompson of California; daughter and son-in-law, Teri and David Rozzell of California; granddaughters, Whitney, Lindsey, Kylie, Tasha, Teilyn and Thea; grandsons, Tanner, Oscar and Jasper; great-grandchildren, Lucas, Ellie, Olive and Torren.

“And in 2018, our tribe passed a resolution unanimously to move forward, introducing and putting back on the land, our traditional name of Skanax.” The name Saginaw “is an affront to the local Tlingit community and a source of discomfort for many residents of the Kake,” said Democratic state Rep. Jonathan KreissTompkins, who sponsored the resolution. The U.S. Board on Geographic Names will consider a petition for the change in July. The Alaska Historical Commission, U.S. Forest Service and others can comment before the federal board’s ruling.

What others say

Competition, not regulation, will boost hospitality industry When legacy businesses are threat-

ened by new competitors, too often they respond by lobbying for regulation to quash them. It’s notable, then, that Marriott recently announced it is starting a new home-rental business, putting the world’s biggest hotel operator in direct competition with Airbnb, the world’s largest home-rental business. Many in the hotel industry have dismissed Airbnb or attributed its success to stealing business by running unregulated and untaxed illegal hotels. There has been little hard research on exactly how Airbnb affects the hotel market. But now three professors in hotel management and marketing — Tarik Dogru from Florida State, Makarand Mody from Boston University, and Courtney Suess from Texas A&M — have analyzed Airbnb’s “disruptive impact” in 10 key markets. Their findings make a case for old-fashioned competition. The sample cities are Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York, San Francisco and Seattle. These are the top-performing cities in supply of hotel and Airbnb rooms. The time frame covers the decade after Airbnb was founded in 2008. Over this period the available accommodations in these cities dramatically increased, in good part thanks to the entry of Airbnb. The researchers weren’t surprised to find a resulting loss in hotel revenue. For each 1% increase in Airbnb supply in a city, hotel revenue declined by 0.02%. Given how much Airbnb supply is coming online each year, that can be a big hit to hotels. In New York City in 2016, it could have meant a loss of as much as $365 million depending on the price of the rooms that went unrented because of Airbnb. The news is brighter for consumers. The arrival of Airbnb has meant more choices — including rooms less expensive than in a hotel — and the resulting competition seems to have brought down room prices in hotels. The authors say that expanding the supply of rooms also helps cities accommodate more people during peak visiting seasons, or during big events such as a Super Bowl. Beneficiaries of Airbnb also include restaurants and shops where more visitors mean more customers. Mr. Dogru, one of the coauthors, notes that some people like staying in a hotel whose name and brand they trust, but Airbnb appeals to people seeking unique experiences that reflect the place they’re visiting. As with any disruptive new competitor, companies such as Airbnb bring out the regulators. And here the authors have a warning. “The application of excessive legislation driven by the interests of incumbent industries,” they note, “has the potential to stifle innovation that ultimately benefits the consumer” and harms economic growth. Let the competition continue. — The Wall Street Journal, May 20

Alaskans lead America in the Arctic A laska V oices B uddy C ustard Two centuries ago, the SS Savannah made history as the first steamship to transit the Atlantic. At just 98 feet long and with a single, 90-horsepower engine, the vessel departed Savannah, Georgia, on May 22, 1819 and arrived in Liverpool, England, nearly a month later. Her maiden voyage — without cargo or paying passengers due to fears about this new means of ocean propulsion — opened a new chapter in maritime history. Appropriately, when Congress established National Maritime Day in 1933, it chose May 22 as the official date for this annual holiday. National Maritime Day this year marks the 200th anniversary of Savannah’s historic voyage, and like then, our nation has the opportunity to play a leading role in another maritime revolution — the emergence of the Arctic as a viable option for shipping between North America, Asia and Europe. As president of the nonprofit Alaska Maritime Prevention & Response Network, I am keenly aware of the unique position Alaska holds in guiding the national discussion, and the incredible opportunities and challenges ahead as vessel traffic increases in our region. As nations like Russia, China, Canada and Norway outpace the U.S. in preparing for the future of Arctic shipping, Alaska continues to shed light on the critical discussions that must be elevated to the highest priori-

ty in Washington, D.C. As a nation we must double our efforts to make sure our Arctic strategy, policies and infrastructure are sufficient to protect our interests while positioning the U.S. to take advantage of tremendous opportunities ahead. Earlier this month, I attended a congressional hearing by the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, of which Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, is a senior member. The hearing illustrated the numerous ways the U.S. lags behind in policy, funding and infrastructure. Former Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell was among those invited to testify. He is co-chair of the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Polar Institute and chairs the Arctic Circle Mission Council on Arctic Shipping and Ports, an Iceland-based, non-governmental organization. Treadwell advised the committee members of our nation’s serious gaps in the Arctic, ranging from shortages of icebreakers, the absence of deepwater ports, vessel support and refueling facilities, and emergency response capabilities. He cautioned lawmakers that inaction by the U.S. “undercuts efforts to develop a safe, secure and reliable Arctic marine transportation system.” I could not agree more. The U.S. is slowly making progress in overcoming its disadvantages among other Arctic nations. The Coast Guard is beginning construction on up to three new heavy ice breaking Polar Security Cutters. Congress is working with the Alaska and Bering Straits Native Corporation to determine a strategy for developing America’s first deepwater Arctic port. And, the International Maritime Organization endorsed a joint U.S.-Russia shipping lane proposal for the Bering Strait. We at the Network want to do our

part for the Arctic. Our mission is to protect vessels, crews and Alaska’s marine environment through partnerships that monitor vessel traffic 24/7 over 1.5 million square miles of Alaska waters, and prepare for potential emergency response. The ability to track vessels and detect problems in real-time allows for rapid responses to vessels in distress. Helping shape the future of Arctic shipping is another pillar of our mission that requires research and engagement at the national and global level to help guide smart, sustainable solutions. As a nonprofit, the Network brings unique, regional expertise and the perspectives of vessel operators to the table, so policies being developed are practical and ultimately successful. For decades, Alaska has led the way in drawing the attention of national leaders toward this new era in maritime history. As the U.S. works to play more of a leadership role, lawmakers will continue to look to Alaska’s delegation and subject matter experts like Treadwell and the Network. In many ways, our nation’s future in Arctic shipping is in the hands of Alaskans. Let’s set a course to ensure the U.S. is fully committed to making the Arctic a national priority backed by a conviction to build infrastructure and policies for a successful journey. Buddy Custard is the president and chief executive officer of the Alaska Maritime Prevention & Response Network. He possesses extensive knowledge and expertise working maritime operations from both the public and private sectors, including serving with the U.S. Coast Guard for over 30 years attaining the rank of captain, and as an executive for an oil exploration and production company operating in the U.S. Arctic Outer Continental Shelf.

News and Politics

2020 preview? Feud between Trump and Biden flares up By STEVE PEOPLES and ZEKE MILLER Associated Press

NEW YORK — Democrats won’t pick their nominee for another year, but President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are acting like the 2020 presidential contest is already a two-man race. Almost completely ignoring his 23 Democratic competitors, Biden has been laser-focused on Trump — particularly his embrace of racist rhetoric. But it has been Trump’s recent focus on Biden that has surprised both his allies and critics, who believe the Republican president may be unintentionally elevating someone whose candidacy is barely a month old. Trump’s advisers have privately encouraged him to lay off Biden. He has done the opposite, lobbing more public insults at the former vice president than any other Democrat over the month. Trump’s latest attack was perhaps his most brazen: During a state visit to Japan on Monday, he agreed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s recent description of Biden as a “low-IQ individual.” A Biden campaign aide on Tuesday called the comments “beneath the dignity of the office.” The campaign said it waited a day to respond out of respect for Memorial Day, a holiday that honors the service of military veterans. “To be on foreign soil, on Memorial Day, and to side repeatedly with a murderous dictator against a fellow Ameri-

can and former vice president speaks for itself,” said Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield. Democrats on the ground in key primary states report that the intensifying feud has strengthened Biden’s argument that he’s best positioned to take down Trump in 2020. For many voters, nothing matters more than electability. And with Trump’s help, Biden is dominating that debate. Regardless of the short-term political fallout, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Trump and his allies view Biden as their most formidable opponent. And the anti-Biden assault could become more organized and intense should Biden maintain his front-runner status in the coming months. “Trump seems to be obsessed with Biden, which suggests that he’s afraid of him,” said Gary Pearce, a longtime Democratic operative based in North Carolina. “Clearly, the reason Trump is going after Biden is because he’s perceived as the biggest threat,” Republican strategist Alice Stewart concurred. “From Biden’s standpoint, you couldn’t ask for a better situation.” Trump’s attacks on Biden are not part of an organized strategy, according to three people familiar with the campaign’s thinking who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters. They described the situation as Trump tweeting and the campaign and the Republican National Committee working overtime to keep up — as evi-

denced by the delays in both entities in amplifying the president’s message. It’s consistent with Trump’s view of himself as his own political strategist, prioritizing his gut over the advice of aides. In recent weeks, the president has attacked Biden’s intelligence, his energy level, his history of unwanted touching, his record on criminal justice reform and his dedication to Pennsylvania. Trump told Pennsylvania voters during a rally last week that Biden “deserted” them. Biden, a native of Scranton, Pennsylvania, left the state as a child when his parents relocated for work. “I’ve never forgotten where I came from. My family did have to leave Pennsylvania when I was 10 — we moved to Delaware where my Dad found a job that could provide for our family,” Biden tweeted. “Trump doesn’t understand the struggles working folks go through.” But Trump went further on Monday when he swiped at the former vice president on foreign soil, choosing Kim’s side over Biden’s when asked about the North Korean leader’s description of the Democrat’s intelligence level. “I don’t take sides as to who I’m in favor or who I’m not,” Trump told reporters in Japan when asked whether he was favoring a violent dictator over the former vice president. “But I can tell you that Joe Biden was a disaster.” Trump added: “Kim Jong Un made a statement that Joe Biden is a low-IQ individual. He probably is, based on his record. I think I agree with him on that.”

Disaster aid bill again blocked in House by GOP conservative

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., speaks to reporters at the Capitol after he blocked a unanimous consent vote on a long-awaited $19 billion disaster aid bill in the chamber on Tuesday. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite) By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A second conservative Republican in as many House sessions blocked a long-overdue $19 billion disaster aid bill Tuesday that’s a top priority for some of President Donald Trump’s most loyal allies on Capitol Hill. Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky said that if Democratic leaders like Speaker Nancy Pelosi thought the measure was so important, they should have kept the House in session in Washington late last week to slate

an up-or-down roll call vote. “If the speaker of this House thought that this was must-pass legislation the speaker … should have called a vote on this bill before sending every member of Congress on recess for 10 days,” Massie said as he blocked the measure. “You can’t have bills passed in Congress with nobody voting on them,” Massie said. “That is the definition of the swamp, and that’s what people resent about this place.” Massie’s move earned swift rebukes from top Democrats. Sanford Bishop

of Georgia said his agricultural district was but one part of the country suffering from hurricane damage and that aid won’t arrive until well after the start of planting season. “Many will not be able to plant this year,” Bishop said. Hurricane Michael struck Georgia in the middle of last fall’s harvest season. Another conservative, Texas freshman GOP Rep. Chip Roy, had blocked an earlier attempt Friday to pass the measure under fast-track rules, but Democrats tried again Tuesday. Bishop flew to Washington from Georgia to request the House pass the popular measure under fast-track procedures that permitted any individual lawmakers to block the bill. Eventual passage of the bill, supported by Trump and top leaders in Congress, is a forgone conclusion. Trying again on Tuesday was a political freebee for Democrats, who went on the attack right after the vote. “I cannot understand why any member would object to giving relief to so

many millions of our citizens who have been badly damaged by natural disasters,” said No. 2 House Democratic leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland. Hoyer said the bill “will be passed overwhelmingly” when the House returns. One concern of many House Republicans was a move by House Democrats last week to dump overboard Trump’s request for $4.5 billion to address the crisis of Central American refugees at the southern border. Trump is a supporter of the measure, which swept through the Senate on Thursday in a rush to exit Washington for Memorial Day. Many Republicans, including southerners facing reelection, are frustrated that the bill has taken so long. After being denied his border money in a fight with House Democrats such as Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, Trump still embraced the bill, which directs much of its aid to political strongholds of his such as the Florida Panhandle and rural Georgia and North Carolina.

Planned Parenthood: Missouri’s last abortion clinic may shut By JIM SALTER Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Missouri’s only abortion clinic could be closed by the end of the week because the state is threatening to not renew its license, Planned Parenthood officials said Tuesday. Planned Parenthood officials said in a teleconference that the current license for the St. Louis facility expires Friday. If not renewed, the organization said Missouri would become the first state without a functioning abortion clinic since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. “This is not a drill,” said Dr. Leana Wen, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “This is not a warning. This is real and it’s a public health crisis.” Planned Parenthood said the state told officials it was investigating “a large number of possible deficiencies.” The state wanted to interview seven physicians, but the organization said

only the two staff physicians agreed to be interviewed. Those interviews will take place later Tuesday. Phone and email messages left for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and Gov. Mike Parson’s office haven’t been returned. Missouri is among half a dozen states that have passed sweeping anti-abortion measures. Parson, a Republican, signed a bill Friday banning abortions on or beyond the eighth week of pregnancy, with no exceptions for rape or incest. Under the Missouri law that comes into force Aug. 28, doctors who violate the eight-week cutoff could face five to 15 years in prison. Women who terminate their pregnancies cannot be prosecuted. Wen said a lawsuit has been filed to try and keep the St. Louis clinic open. If it closes, the nearest clinics performing abortions are in a Kansas suburb of Kansas City and in Granite City, Illinois, across the Mississippi

River from St. Louis. “While the state of Missouri is waging a war against its abortion services and providers, the Hope Clinic remains committed to the patients of Missouri,” Erin King, executive director of the Granite City clinic, said in a statement. Wen said Missouri has “illegally weaponized the licensing process.” Colleen McNicholas, an OB-GYN at the Planned Parenthood office in St. Louis, called it the “natural consequence of several decades of restriction after restriction.” “This is precisely what we’ve been warning of,” McNicholas said.

Alabama’s governor signed a bill on May 15 making performing an abortion a felony in nearly all cases. Supporters have said they hope to provoke a legal challenge that will eventually force the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit its landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationally. Unlike Alabama’s neartotal abortion ban, lawmakers who helped draft the Missouri bill say it’s meant to withstand court challenges instead of spark them. If the eight-week ban is struck down, the bill includes a ladder of less-restrictive time limits at 14, 18 or 20 weeks.

Today in History Today is Wednesday, May 29, the 149th day of 2019. There are 216 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 29, 1953, Mount Everest was conquered as Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tensing Norgay of Nepal became the first climbers to reach the summit. On this date: In 1765, Patrick Henry denounced the Stamp Act before Virginia’s House of Burgesses. In 1790, Rhode Island became the 13th original colony to ratify the United States Constitution. In 1848, Wisconsin became the 30th state of the union. In 1914, the Canadian ocean liner RMS Empress of Ireland sank in the St. Lawrence River in eastern Quebec after colliding with the Norwegian cargo ship SS Storstad; of the 1,477 people on board the Empress of Ireland, 1,012 died. (The Storstad suffered only minor damage.) In 1917, the 35th president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was born in Brookline, Massachusetts. In 1932, World War I veterans began arriving in Washington to demand cash bonuses they weren’t scheduled to receive until 1945. In 1954, English runner Diane Leather became the first woman to run a sub-five-minute mile, finishing in 4:59.6 during the Midland Championships in Birmingham. In 1977, Janet Guthrie became the first woman to race in the Indianapolis 500, finishing in 9th place (the winner was A.J. Foyt). In 1985, 39 people were killed at the European Cup Final in Brussels, Belgium, when rioting broke out and a wall separating British and Italian soccer fans collapsed. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev opened their historic summit in Moscow. In 1998, Republican elder statesman Barry Goldwater died in Paradise Valley, Arizona, at age 89. In 2008, the Vatican issued a decree stating that anyone trying to ordain a woman as a priest and any woman who attempted to receive the ordination would incur automatic excommunication. Actor-comedian Harvey Korman, Emmy winner for “The Carol Burnett Show,” died in Los Angeles at age 81. Ten years ago: A judge in Los Angeles sentenced music producer Phil Spector to 19 years to life in prison for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson. Jay Leno hosted “The Tonight Show” on NBC supposedly for the final time, giving up his desk to Conan O’Brien. (After a stint in prime time, Leno returned to “Tonight” in March 2010, stepping down again in February 2014.) Five years ago: Saying he wanted kids to play sports but play safely, President Barack Obama called for more and better research into the effects and treatment of concussions in youth athletes during a summit at the White House. The Food and Drug Administration required tanning beds and sun lamps to carry new warnings that they should not be used by anyone under age 18. Shelly Sterling signed a binding contract to sell the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for a record-breaking $2 billion. One year ago: ABC canceled the reboot of “Roseanne,” after star Roseanne Barr’s tweet that referred to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the “Planet of the Apes.” Starbucks closed thousands of stores for part of the day to hold training sessions for employees on unconscious bias, in response to the arrests of two black men in Philadelphia at one of its stores.

Around the Nation Trial underway in Oklahoma’s lawsuit against opioid makers NORMAN, Okla. — The nation’s first state trial against drugmakers blamed for contributing to the opioid crisis started Tuesday in Oklahoma in a case that could shape negotiations to resolve the roughly 1,500 other opioid lawsuits consolidated before a federal judge. Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter started opening statements by saying powerful painkillers have led to the “worst manmade public health crisis” in U.S. history. The state alleges drugmakers extensively marketed highly addictive opioids for years in a way that overstated their effectiveness and underplayed the risk of addiction. “This crisis is devastating Oklahoma,” Hunter said, adding that opioid overdoses killed 4,653 people in the state from 2007 to 2017. Drugmakers deny Oklahoma’s claims. The companies maintain that they are part of a lawful and heavily regulated industry that is subject to strict federal oversight, and that doctors are the ones who prescribe the drugs. Much of the opioid crisis, they argue, is the result of illegal activity, such as drugs being stolen or obtained fraudulently. Lawyers for consumer products giant Johnson & Johnson and several subsidiaries, also delivered opening statements Tuesday. Janssen Pharmaceutical Cos. attorney Larry Ottaway said the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary represents only a small part of a vast supply and distribution chain for opioid products that is extensively regulated by various federal agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. He said the company’s fentanyl patch Duragesic represented only a tiny fraction of the opioid market in Oklahoma and was not widely abused or sold on the street like other drugs. “It has low rates of addiction and low rates of diversion,” Ottaway said of the Duragesic patches. “When you hear about pill mills, you don’t hear about patches.” — The Associated Press

Knife-wielding man attacks schoolgirls in Japan, killing 2 By MARI YAMAGUCHI and JAE HONG Associated Press

KAWASAKI, Japan — A man carrying a knife in each hand and screaming “I will kill you!” attacked a group of schoolgirls near a school bus parked at a bus stop just outside Tokyo on Tuesday, killing two people and injuring at least 17 before killing himself, officials said. Most of the victims were students at a Catholic elementary school who were lined up at the bus stop near Noborito Park in the city of Kawasaki when the man began slashing them with knives. Officials said police captured the attacker but he died at a hospital from a self-inflicted cut in his neck. Witnesses described a hellish scene: children and adults falling to the ground, some with their shirts soaked with blood, dozens of children running and screaming for help, and school bags and books scattered on the ground. “I heard a scream so I stopped and turned around

to see what happened. It was not a normal tone of voice,” said Yasuko Atsukata. She said she saw one person collapse, and then another. “The color of their white shirts turned red after they collapsed, then I understood they got stabbed.” In a nearby parking lot, a frightened-looking boy was in shock with scratches on his face, hands and legs, apparently from falling to the ground as he ran for his life. Police identified the attacker as Ryuichi Iwasaki, a 51-year-old resident of Kawasaki, and said they were still checking his occupation. The attacker’s motive wasn’t immediately known. Police found two more knives in the man’s knapsack in addition to the two he was holding, according to media reports. Iwasaki reportedly lived with his elderly uncle and aunt and was known as a troublemaker. A neighbor said Iwasaki repeatedly rang her doorbell early one the morning about a year

ago and yelled at her husband that he had been hit by a tree branch sticking out from their yard, the Sankei newspaper reported. Kawasaki city official Masami Arai said most of the injured were students at Caritas Gakuen, a Catholic school founded by Soeurs de la Charite de Quebec, an organization of Catholic nuns in Quebec City in Canada. Arai said three of the injuries were serious. Kanagawa prefectural police confirmed 17 people were injured and three others had died, including the attacker. Police identified the two other fatalities as

11-year-old Hanako Kuribayashi and Satoshi Oyama, a 39-year-old government employee who was taking his child to the bus stop. Hospital officials said both had been slashed in the neck and the head. Caritas Chairman Tetsuro Saito said at a news conference that he was “struggling to fight back my anger.” “My heart is broken with pain when I think of the innocent children and their parents who send their children to our school with love who were victimized by this savage act,” he said.

Iran’s Guard talks tough, says it has no fear of war with US

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s influential Revolutionary Guard said Tuesday it doesn’t fear a possible war with the United States and claimed that America hasn’t grown in power in recent years — the latest tough talk from Tehran

amid escalating regional tensions and a crisis with Washington. “The enemy is not more powerful than before,” said the Guard spokesman, Gen. Ramazan Sharif. Tensions between Washington and Tehran soared recently over America deploying an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers to the

Around the World

Persian Gulf over a still-unexplained threat it perceives from Tehran. The U.S. also plans to send 900 additional troops to the Mideast and extending the stay of another 600 as tens of thousands of others also are on the ground across the region. The crisis takes root in President Donald Trump’s withdrawal last year of the U.S. from the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers that capped Iran’s uranium enrichment activities in return to lifting sanctions. Washington subsequently re-imposed sanctions on Iran, sending its economy into freefall. Trump has argued that the deal failed to sufficiently curb Iran’s ability to develop nuclear weapons or halt its support for militias throughout the Middle East that the U.S. says destabilize the region, as well as address the issue of Tehran’s missiles, which can reach both U.S. regional bases and Israel.

Speaking at a press conference in Tehran, Sharif said the Guard doesn’t “support engaging in any war” while at the same time it doesn’t “fear the occurrence of a war.” “We have enough readiness to defend the country,” he said, adding that Iran has boosted its military power over the past 30 years. Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif appeared unimpressed with Japan’s offer to mediate in the crisis, saying Trump should make his intentions clear about any talks with Iran through actions, not words. Zarif said in a late Monday tweet: “Actions—not words—will show whether or not that’s In Japan on Monday, Trump said he’d back Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s efforts to open a communication with Iran. “I do believe Iran would like to talk and if they’d like to talk, we’ll talk also,” Trump said.

RIO DE JANEIRO — Forty-two inmates were killed at three different prisons in the capital of Brazil’s northern Amazonas state Monday, authorities reported, a day after 15 died during fighting among prisoners at a fourth prison in the same city. The Amazonas state prison agency said all 42 prisoners found dead in Manaus on Monday showed signs of asphyxia. The killings across the city’s prisons recalled early 2017 when more than 120 inmates died at the hands of other prisoners during riots over several weeks at prisons in northern states. Many of those victims had their heads cut off or their hearts and intestines ripped out. On Sunday, 15 inmates were killed during a riot at Manaus’ Anisio Jobim Prison Complex, where 56 prisoners died in the violence two years earlier. Local authorities said prisoners began fighting among themselves before noon Sunday, and security reinforcements were rushed in and managed to regain control within 45 minutes. Little information was released about Monday’s killings. Brazil’s justice and public security ministry said it was sending a federal task force to help local officials handle the situation. “I just spoke with (Justice) Minister Sergio Moro, who is already sending a prison intervention team to the State of Amazonas, so that he can help us in this moment of crisis and a problem that is national: the problem of prisons,” Amazonas state Gov. Wilson Lima said. Brazil’s prison gangs are powerful and their reach extends outside the country’s penitentiaries.

Belgium’s ex-monarch agrees to DNA test in paternity case BRUSSELS — A decades-old royal paternity scandal is setting Belgium abuzz again. Lawyers said Tuesday that Belgium’s former King Albert II, 84, has finally agreed to a DNA test demanded by a woman who claims to be his daughter in what could be a decisive breakthrough in the longrunning case. By the evening, news of the former king’s acquiescence had already pushed Sunday’s Belgium election results with its extreme right gains into second place on the local news. King Albert II, who abdicated in 2013 for health reasons, had been facing a daily fine of $5,600 for failing to provide his DNA in the case brought by 51-year-old Delphine Boel. Boel has been trying to establish paternity for years and her story has often made headlines. Albert has never publicly denied being her father but so far had refused to provide DNA. A statement from Albert’s lawyer, delivered to the Belgian media, said after the former monarch had taken note of the judgment two weeks ago, which imposed the daily fine, he would submit to the test “out of respect to the judicial authorities.” It was made clear the move did not imply any admission of guilt. Boel’s lawyer, Yves-Henri Leleu, said she “reacted very positively, because with the DNA test, the biological evidence is now there.” The lawyer for the former monarch said the DNA results would have to be sealed until later in the legal case. — The Associated Press

Business Sports Illustrated magazine sold for $110 million By TALI ARBEL AP Business Writer

NEW YORK — Sports Illustrated magazine has been sold for $110 million to a company that specializes in managing fashion, entertainment and sports brands, including marketing rights to Shaquille O’Neal and Muhammad Ali. The seller, Meredith Corp., will continue running the print edition and the website for at least two years. Its editor and publisher are staying on, and the magazine will have editorial independence. The deal lets Sports Illustrated grow in new areas such as esports, while Meredith can continue to “produce independent, award-winning journalism and storytelling,” Sports Illustrated Editor-in-Chief Chris Stone said in a statement. It’s not clear what will happen after two years, though it’s possible Meredith and the new buyer,

Authentic Brands Group, could extend their licensing deal, terms for which weren’t disclosed. The magazine is “so essential in the psyche of sports,” said Samir Husni, director of the Magazine Innovation Center at the University of Mississippi, even after the magazine lost some of its luster with ESPN’s entry to sports journalism decades ago. “I don’t think Sports Illustrated is going anywhere soon,” Husni said. Meredith has long published Martha Stewart Living magazine under a licensing deal. “We believe we will have similar, great success developing the vitality and profitability of Sports Illustrated,” Meredith spokeswoman Jill Davison said. For now, she said Meredith and Authentic have “achievable and ambitious goals to meet” and will evaluate the partnership after two years. She said there are no plans to change the magazine’s frequency. The once-weekly print edition

currently comes out every other week. Authentic said it sees opportunities to grow Sports Illustrated in digital, TV and social media, making it “a leader in lifestyle and entertainment.” Authentic will take over marketing and business development and will look for other licensing opportunities in products, original content and live events. The company said it sees opportunities to use the

Sports Illustrated brand in growing markets for sports gambling and video game competitions known as esports. “The aim is not only to extend the partnership past the two-year mark, but to expand the relationship beyond the Sports Illustrated brand,” Authentic spokeswoman Haley Steinberg said. She said there was an opportunity for Meredith to help develop content for Authentic’s other brands.

US stocks, bond yield slump, signaling market jitters By DAMIAN J. TROISE and ALEX VEIGA AP Business Writers

U.S. stocks fell broadly Tuesday as anxious investors shifted money into bonds, sending yields to their lowest level in nearly two years. Rising bond prices, which pull yields lower, are typically a sign that traders feel jittery about long-term growth prospects and would rather put their money into safer holdings. The yield on the benchmark 10 year Treasury fell to 2.26% Tuesday, the lowest level since September 2017. That put it below the 2.35% yield on the threemonth Treasury bill. When that kind of “inversion” in bond yields occurs, economists fear it may signal a recession within the coming year. It has happened multiple times so far this year. Investors have been weighing a mix of encouraging and discouraging eco-

nomic reports this year as they also keep an eye on unpredictable swings in the escalating trade war between the U.S. and China. “If the bond market was saying that the economy is on OK footing then you wouldn’t see yields fall like they are,” said Willie Delwiche, investment strategist at Baird. “In many respects, equities are waking up to what’s happening in bonds.” The S&P 500 index fell 23.67 points, or 0.8%, to 2,802.39. The index had been up 0.5% earlier in the day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 237.92 points, or 0.9%, to 25,347.77, after rising about 131 points earlier. The Nasdaq composite dropped 29.66 points, or 0.4%, to 7,607.35. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies gave up 10.09 points, or 0.7%, to 1,504.02. Major stock indexes in Europe also declined. U.S. stocks headed higher in the early going Tuesday

as the market reopened after Monday’s Memorial Day holiday closure. But indexes reversed course by midday and never recovered. Trading has been choppy over the last several weeks as investors grapple with the possibility of a prolonged trade war between the U.S. and China. They escalated the dispute earlier this month by raising tariffs on each other. The U.S. went even further and proposed a ban on technology sales to certain Chinese companies. That added even more volatility to technology stocks that are already sensitive to the ups and downs of trade negotiations. The trade dispute has interrupted a market rally that saw the S&P 500 recoup the fourth quarter’s sharp loss and hit a new high. The index is down 4.9% so far in May, though it’s still up 11.8% for the year. In a client note Tuesday, Morgan Stanley warned that the stock market faces a lot

more volatility because of weak economic data and the trade war. It also cautioned that those factors are also increasing the risk that the U.S. economy could slide into a recession. “This isn’t just about the U.S. and China,” said Brian Nick, chief investment strategist at Nuveen. “It’s about everybody sensing there is something to brace for.” The drop in yields accelerated last week, but it has been happening gradually since late last year, when the 10 year Treasury yield peaked at 3.2%. The slide in bond yields held back gains for banks and other financial companies. Falling yields lead to lower interest rates on loans, which makes lending less profitable. Goldman Sachs Group slid 1.8%. Health care, consumer staples and industrial stocks also took heavy losses. UnitedHealth Group dropped 2.3%, Procter & Gamble slid 2.1% and United Rentals closed 3% lower.

Canadian lawmakers blast Facebook’s execs for snub OTTAWA, Ontario — Canadian lawmakers voted Tuesday to serve a summons on Facebook executives Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg that would compel them to appear before them the next time either visits Canada. The decision comes after Zuckerberg and Sandberg failed to appear before the international grand committee on big data, privacy and democracy, which is being hosted by Canada’s parliament this week, despite being called on to testify. The panel of international politicians is examining the role of tech giants in safeguarding privacy and democratic rights. New Democratic party lawmaker Charlie Angus said Tuesday the Facebook executives were showing disrespect to legislators around the world. “Facebook has serious responsibilities in terms of the misuse of the platform that has led to mass killings in Myanmar, the undermining of electoral systems around the world, the attack on private rights and citizen rights,” Angus said. Conservative lawmaker Bob Zimmer said if the Facebook executives refuse to appear, they will be held in contempt. It was not clear exactly what consequences that might have. “As soon as they step foot — either Mr. Zuckerberg or Ms. Sandberg — into our country they will be served and expected to appear before our committee,” said Zimmer. The committee set up two chairs at a table with the pair’s names on cards. The chairs sat empty. Kevin Chan and Neil Potts, two of Facebook’s global policy directors, did appear. Potts said they were appearing as subject matter experts for their company. The committee is made up of politicians from Canada, the United Kingdom, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, France, Ireland, Latvia and Singapore. “We are grateful to the Committee for the opportunity to answer their questions today and remain committed to working with world leaders, governments, and industry experts to address these complex issues. As we emphasized, we share the Committee’s desire to keep people safe and to hold companies like ours accountable,” Facebook said in an email to The Associated Press. Jim Balsillie, the former chief executive of Research In Motion, which invented the BlackBerry smartphone, testified earlier Tuesday that a “toxic” social media business model is a threat to democracy. Balsillie, now the chair of the Ontario Centre for International Governance Innovation, also offered a thinly veiled criticism of Zuckerberg and Sandberg for not responding to the committee’s summons to testify. “By displacing the print and broadcast media in influencing public opinion, technology is becoming the new Fourth Estate. In our system of checks and balances, this makes technology co-equal with the executive, the legislative, and the judiciary,” he said he said in testimony at the start of the second of three days of meetings in Ottawa. “When this new Fourth Estate declines to appear before this committee — as Silicon Valley executives are currently doing — it is symbolically asserting this aspirational co-equal status … The work of this international grand committee is a vital first step toward redress of this untenable current situation.” In its remaining sessions in Ottawa, the committee is to hear from experts on how best governments can prevent the use of social media to violate individuals’ privacy, spread fake news, sow dissension and manipulate election outcomes. — The Associated Press

Dress your kebabs with a rich za’atar yogurt sauce

‘G rannie ’ A nnie B erg

Growing up in the ’40s and ’50s The following column is a story by Pat Corbella, co-authored by Ann Berg. Some thoughts about growing up in the ’40s and ’50s, at a time when everyone treated each other with respect. We didn’t eat a lot of fast food. We drank Kool-Aid, ate lunch meat sandwiches, PB&J sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, hot dogs, pot pies, but mostly homemade meals, such as meatloaf, fried potatoes, beans and cornbread. We grew up during a time when we would gather glass bottles to take to the store and use the deposit money to buy penny candy. (We even got brown paper bags to put the candy in and saved the bag to put our treasures in!) You sure could get a lot for 25 cents. We went outside to play games, ride bikes, jumped rope and raced against siblings, played hide-and-seek, red rover, red lightgreen light, mother may I?, kick the can, ghost in the graveyard. There was no bottled water, no microwaves or cable TV, no cellphones, no hair straighteners. We ate eggs at the breakfast table before going to school. We watched “Gilligan’s Island” and “American Bandstand” or worked in the yard and garden after school. If you lived on a farm you had chores every morning before school and every evening after school. We watched some cartoons on Saturday morning. If you were bad in school, you got in trouble there and when you got home you got in trouble again because they magically already knew. Paddling was allowed in school and you behaved yourself or else. We would ride our bikes for hours all without a cellphone or electronic games.

In the Middle East, kebabs — called kofte — feature ground meat (not chunks) mixed with lots of spices and fresh herbs that is formed around metal skewers and quickly grilled. We like them dressed with a za’atar yogurt sauce the kebabs’ spices and extreme savour are contrasted with welcome herbal freshness and tang from the za’atar while the creaminess from the alsotart yogurt cuts through the richness. For the kofte, the biggest challenge was getting the patties’ sausage-like texture right. We found that adding a small amount of powdered gelatin to the ground lamb helped the meat firm up and hold fast to the skewer. Ground pine nuts added to the meat prevented toughness and contributed their own pleasant texture and a boost in richness. A concentrated charcoal fire setup mimicked the intense heat of a kofte grill. Serve with rice pilaf, or make sandwiches with warm pita bread, sliced red onion, tomatoes, and

fresh mint just make sure to drizzle with the spiced sauce. You will need eight 12 inch metal skewers for this recipe.


Servings: 4-6 Start to finish: 1 hour, 45 minutes 1/2 cup pine nuts 4 garlic cloves, peeled 11/2 teaspoons smoked hot paprika 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 1/2 pounds ground lamb 1/2 cup grated onion, drained 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley 1/3 cup minced fresh mint 1 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin 1 (13 by 9 inch) disposable aluminum roasting

pan (if using charcoal) 1 cup Za’atar Yogurt Sauce (recipe follows) Process pine nuts, garlic, paprika, salt, cumin, pepper, coriander, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon in food processor until coarse paste forms, 30 to 45 seconds. Transfer mixture to large bowl. Add lamb, onion, parsley, mint, and gelatin and knead with your hands until thoroughly combined and mixture feels slightly sticky, about 2 minutes. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions. Shape each portion into 5 inch-long cylinder about 1 inch in diameter. Using eight 12 inch metal skewers, thread 1 cylinder onto each skewer, pressing gently to adhere. Transfer kebabs to lightly greased baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. — For a charcoal grill: Using skewer, poke 12 holes in bottom of disposable pan. Open bottom vent completely and place pan in centre of grill. Light large chimney starter twothirds filled with charcoal -briquettes (4 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour into disposable pan.

Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent completely. Heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. — For a gas grill: Turn all burners to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Leave all burners on high. Clean and oil cooking grate. Place kebabs on grill (directly over coals if using charcoal) at 45 degree angle to bars. Cook (covered if using gas) until browned and meat easily releases from grill, 4 to 7 minutes. Flip kebabs and continue to cook until meat is browned on second side and registers 160 F, about 6 minutes. Transfer kebabs to serving platter and serve, passing yogurt sauce separately. Za’atar yogurt sauce We prefer to use our homemade Za’atar, but you can substitute storebought za’atar different za’atar blends include varying salt amounts. 1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt 1 tablespoon za’atar (recipe follows) 1 garlic clove, minced 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest plus 1 tablespoon juice Salt and pepper Whisk yogurt, za’atar,

garlic, and lemon zest and juice together in bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate so flavours meld, about 30 minutes. (Sauce can be refrigerated for up to 4 days.) Za’atar: Za’atar is an aromatic eastern Mediterranean spice blend that is used as both a seasoning and a condiment. The thyme gives it a round herbal flavour, the sumac lemony tartness, and the sesame seeds richness and subtle crunch. 1/2 cup dried thyme 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted 1 1/2 tablespoons ground sumac Working in batches, process thyme in spice grinder until finely ground, about 30 seconds transfer to small bowl. Stir in sesame seeds and sumac. (Za’atar can be stored in airtight container for up to 3 months.) ——— Nutrition information per serving: 359 calories 222 calories from fat 25 g fat (7 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 77 mg cholesterol 530 mg sodium 9 g carbohydrate 3 g fiber 3 g sugar 28 g protein.

Shrimp, garlic, oil and wine equals a tasty and quick dinner By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Toss a few quick-cooking ingredients—shrimp, garlic, oil, wine—with boiled dried pasta, and only the salad’s left holding up dinner. But there are challenges. Delicate shrimp overcooks in a matter of seconds. Volatile garlic can easily become overbearing or bitter (or simply disappear). Add to that the feat of getting a brothy sauce to coat the pasta, and this simple recipe turns into a precarious balancing act. But we still wanted it all: al dente pasta and moist shrimp bound by a supple sauce infused with a deep garlic flavour.

Servings: 4-6 Start to finish: 45 minutes

Chef’s Note: Marinate the shrimp while you prepare the remaining ingredients. Use the smaller amount of red pepper flakes for a milder sauce. 1 pound large shrimp (26 to 30 per pound), peeled, deveined, and each shrimp cut into 3 pieces 3 tablespoons olive oil 9 garlic cloves, peeled (5 cloves minced and 4 cloves smashed) Salt and pepper 1 pound penne, ziti, or other short, tubular pasta 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour 1/2 cup dry vermouth or white wine 3/4 cup bottled clam juice 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 teaspoon lemon juice, plus lemon wedges for serving Combine shrimp, 1

tablespoon oil, one-third of minced garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in bowl. Let shrimp marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes. Heat smashed garlic and remaining 2 tablespoons oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, until garlic turns golden but not brown, 4 to 7 minutes. Off heat, remove garlic with slotted spoon and discard. Set skillet with oil aside. 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. While pasta cooks, return skillet to medium heat. Add shrimp along with marinade, spread into even layer, and cook, without stirring, until oil starts to bubble gently, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir shrimp and continue to cook until almost cooked through, about 1 minute longer. Remove

shrimp with slotted spoon and transfer to clean bowl. Add remaining minced garlic and pepper flakes to skillet and cook over medium heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in vermouth and cook for 1 minute. Stir in clam juice and parsley and cook until mixture starts to thicken, 1 to 2 minutes. Off heat, whisk in butter until melted, then stir in lemon juice. Add shrimp and sauce to pasta and toss to combine. Add reserved cooking water as needed to adjust consistency. Season with pepper to taste. Serve immediately, passing lemon wedges separately. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 474 calories 130 calories from fat 15 g fat (5 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 111 mg cholesterol 692 mg sodium 60 g carbohydrate 3 g fiber 3 g sugar 20 g protein.

disrespecting them and treating them as if they knew nothing. What they said might as well

have been the gospel. If someone had a fight, that’s what it was — a fist fight and you were back to being friends after. Kids who were around guns were taught to respect them and never thought of taking a life. You had to be close enough to home to hear your mom yelling to tell you it’s time to come home for dinner. We ate around the dinner and supper table and talked to each other. School was mandatory. We said the Pledge of Allegiance to our teachers. We said the Lord’s Prayer and sang Christmas songs at Christmas! We watched what we said around our elders because we knew if we disrespected any grown-up we would get our behinds busted; it wasn’t called abuse. It was called discipline! We held doors, carried groceries and gave up our seat without being asked to. You didn’t hear curse words on the radio or TV, and if IF you cursed you did it away from the public or you got your mouth washed out with a bar of soap. “Please” and “thank you” were part of our daily dialogue. We went to church Sunday morning. And some of us went Sunday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon. We didn’t have any kids sports on Wednesday afternoon or Sundays. I am thankful for my childhood and will never forget where I came from! Wouldn’t it be nice if it were possible to get back to this way of life? Memories are treasures to be given to others.

To brighten scallops, why not try a sugar snap pea slaw? By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

This undated photo shows Pan-Seared Scallops with Slaw in Brookline, Mass. (Daniel J. van Ackere/America’s Test Kitchen via AP)

For a new take on vegetable slaw, we thinly sliced sweet snap peas, juicy English cucumbers, and peppery radishes for a fresh, crunchy accompaniment to skilletseared sea scallops. We brightened up the mayonnaise-based slaw dressing with plenty of fresh chives and lemon zest and juice. A quick sear on the scallops deliciously caramelized the exterior while keeping the inside tender. Blotting the scallops on a baking sheet with a clean kitchen towel dried them so that they could quickly develop a flavourful crust without overcooking. We recommend buying

“dry” scallops, which don’t have chemical additives and taste better than “wet.” Dry scallops will look ivory or pinkish wet scallops are bright white.

PAN-SEARED SCALLOPS WITH SUGAR SNAP PEA SLAW Servings: 4 Start to finish: 25 minutes 1 1/2 pounds large sea scallops, tendons removed 1/4 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest plus 2 tablespoons juice Salt and pepper 8 ounces sugar snap peas, strings removed, sliced thin on bias

1 English cucumber, halved lengthwise and sliced thin 6 radishes, trimmed, halved lengthwise, and sliced thin 2 tablespoons vegetable oil Place scallops in rimmed baking sheet lined with clean kitchen towel. Place second clean kitchen towel on top of scallops and press gently on towel to blot liquid. Let scallops sit at room temperature, covered with towel, for 10 minutes. Whisk mayonnaise, chives, lemon zest and juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together in large bowl. Add snap peas, cucumber, and radishes and toss to combine set aside for serving. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in

12 inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Add half of scallops to skillet in single layer and cook, without moving them, until well browned on first side, about 1 1/2 minutes. Flip scallops and continue to cook, without moving them, until well browned on second side, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer scallops to serving platter and tent with aluminum foil. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and remaining scallops. Serve scallops with slaw. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 306 calories 162 calories from fat 18 g fat (2 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 47 mg cholesterol 903 mg sodium 12 g carbohydrate 2 g fiber 3 g sugar 23 g protein.

Supersize your falafel into a uniquely delicious burger By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Falafel are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, packed with seasoning, and utterly irresistible. Here we essentially supersize these chickpea fritters to make a uniquely delicious burger. We started by soaking dried chickpeas overnight to soften before grinding them into coarse bits along with onion, herbs, garlic, and spices. Traditional falafel recipes use flour and chickpeas for a dough-like texture, but uncooked flour yielded patties that were dry and bready instead, we used a microwaved flour paste to add moisture and create a soft interior. To ensure burger-size falafel, we used a dry measuring cup and dropped scoops of the falafel mixture into a heated skillet and then used the back of a spoon to press each portion into a 3/4-inch-thick patty. To top off our burgers, we created a sauce featuring tahini, Greek yogurt, and lemon juice and also added sliced cucumber and

quick pickled red onions for a burger so flavourful we may never go back to falafel wrapped in pita bread.

FALAFEL BURGERS WITH TAHINIYOGURT SAUCE Servings: 4 Start to finish: 45 minutes 8 ounces dried chickpeas, picked over and rinsed 1/3 cup tahini 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt 3 tablespoons lemon juice, plus extra for seasoning 3/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves and stems 3/4 cup fresh parsley leaves 1/2 onion, chopped fine 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon table salt 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus extra as needed 4 hamburger buns, toast-

ed if desired 1/4 English cucumber, sliced thin 1/2 cup Quick Pickled Red Onions (recipe follows) Place chickpeas in large container and cover with water by 2 to 3 inches. Soak at room temperature for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Drain well. Whisk tahini, yogurt, and lemon juice in medium bowl until smooth. Season with salt and extra lemon juice to taste set aside. (Sauce can be refrigerated for up to 4 days let come to room temperature and stir to recombine before serving.) Process cilantro, parsley, onion, garlic, coriander, cumin, salt, and cayenne in food processor until mixture is finely ground, about 30 seconds, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add chickpeas and pulse 6 times. Continue to pulse until chickpeas are coarsely chopped and resemble sesame seeds, about 6 more pulses. Transfer mixture to large bowl and set aside. Whisk flour and 1/3 cup water in bowl until no lumps remain. Microwave, whisking every 10 seconds,

until mixture thickens to stiff, smooth, puddinglike consistency that forms mound when dropped from end of whisk into bowl, 40 to 80 seconds. Stir baking powder into flour paste. Add flour paste to chickpea mixture and, using rubber spatula, mix until fully incorporated. (Falafel mixture can be refrigerated for up to 2 hours.) Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Using 1 cup measure, drop 4 even portions (about 3/4 cup each) into skillet, then press each portion into 3/4-inch-thick patty with back of spoon. Cook until golden brown and crisp on first side, 4 to 6 minutes. Using 2 spatulas, gently flip patties and cook until well browned and crisp on second side, 4 to 6 minutes, adding extra oil as needed if skillet looks dry. Serve burgers on buns, topped with cucumber, pickled onions, and tahini-yogurt sauce. Quick Pickled Red Onions: Makes about 1 cup Pickled onions are an ab-

French Open: Osaka avoids early upset By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

PARIS — Naomi Osaka’s body language made her plight plain. For all she’s already accomplished, the internal pressure stemming from aiming to do even more was ruining her debut as the No. 1 seed at a Grand Slam tournament. Fed up with her poor play in a first-round match at the French Open — errors off Osaka’s racket gave her opponent her first 30 points Tuesday — she missed yet another shot. She was within a game of losing. Osaka wheeled around to look at her box and display what seemed to be a sarcastic thumbs-up. “Definitely sarcastic. I was kind of thinking: ‘Do

you guys see this amazing tennis I’m playing right here? Thumbs-up.’ I don’t even know what I wanted them to do. I felt kind of bad after I did it. It was more like I had to put my emotions somewhere,” Osaka said. “It’s one of those matches where you’re not playing well, but you have to find a way to win. For me, I’ve just begun learning how to do that.” Five times just two points from defeat in a swirling wind, Osaka held it together enough to overcome all of those miscues and stretch her winning streak at majors to 15 matches by eventually beating 90th-ranked Anna Karolina Schmiedlova of Slovakia 0-6, 7-6 (4), 6-1. As she got going, Osaka delivered a pinpoint cross-

court forehand that was too hard to handle, then looked at her box again, this time with a pumping clenched left fist. Afterward, she acknowledged having jitters as she pursues a third consecutive major title while topping the seedings. “I feel like I’m thinking too much about the number next to my name right now, instead of feeling free and having fun like I normally do in Grand Slams,” Osaka said. “The reason that I wasn’t moving my feet is because I was super nervous, super stressed.” Defending champion Simona Halep could relate. Starting her first defense of a Slam title, she also turned in an uneven performance and needed three See OPEN, page A11

Twins pitcher, cancer survivor, twirls gem in debut Smeltzer tosses 6 scoreless innings against Brewers MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Devin Smeltzer added another chapter to his inspiring comeback story, pitching six shutout innings in his big league debut and helping the Minnesota Twins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-3 Tuesday night. Diagnosed with a grapefruit-sized cancerous tumor against his bladder when he was just 9 years old, Smeltzer wasn’t deterred in his goal to reach the majors. The 23-yearold got his chance this week after the Twins put pitcher Michael Pineda on the injured list with right knee tendinitis. Smeltzer allowed three hits, walked none and struck out seven. Showing a funky, three-quarter style delivery, the lanky left-hander threw 69 pitches, 53 for strikes. Smeltzer left with the game scoreless and got a no-decision. PADRES 5, YANKEES 4 NEW YORK (AP) — Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer during a big first inning against Masahiro Tanaka, and San Diego manager Andy Green burned through his bullpen to help hold off New York. New York tried to rally in the rain, g etting three runs in the seventh inning during a stretch when Green used six pitchers to face eight batters. San Diego escaped the seventh on Gary Sánchez’s flyout, Craig Stammen pitched the eighth and former Yankee reliever Kirby Yates pitched the ninth for his 21st save in 21 chances.

Braves rookie Austin Riley’s two-run homer in the eighth cut Washington’s lead to 5-4. Riley had three hits. Sean Doolittle earned his 10th save in 12 chances. Strasburg (5-3) gave up an RBI single to Nick Markakis in Atlanta’s two-run fourth. He struck out two batters in each of the first three innings and gave up only five hits and two runs.

ASTROS 9, CUBS 6 HOUSTON (AP) — Alex Bregman homered twice, his second a tiebreaking two-run shot in the sixth inning that propelled injury-weakened Houston over Chicago in a win that gave manager AJ Hinch his 500th career victory. Bregman, who is tied for the American League lead with 17 homers, got his first one in the third inning off starter Jon Lester (3-4). It was tied at 6-6 when he connected on Brad Brach’s first pitch for the second. Roberto Osuna struck out one in a perfect ninth for his 15th save.


CINCINNATI (AP) — Derek Dietrich hit three homers — all two-run shots for Cincinnati— and Pittsburgh suffered yet another injury to its rotation in a loss to the Reds.

Durant to travel with Warriors, will miss game 1 By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer

OAKLAND, Calif. — Kevin Durant is traveling with the Golden State Warriors to Toronto for the first two games of the NBA Finals, leaving open the chance he could be ready to return from a strained right calf in time for Game 2. Durant, the two-time reigning Finals MVP who has missed the past five games since getting hurt in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Houston, has already been ruled out for Game 1 on Thursday night. As of Tuesday, when Golden State held an optional practice before flying, he had yet to do any full-speed work on the court. He has done some shooting, coach Steve Kerr said. “If he did anything on the court,

it would have been pretty light,” Kerr said. Warriors spokesman Raymond Ridder confirmed Durant was on the two-time defending champions’ team plane that took off early afternoon West Coast time and landed late in Canada. There will be two full days off before Game 2 on Sunday, giving Durant time to get further on-court work done that the Warriors would need to see before he is medically cleared. “We’ll see where it goes from here,” Kerr said Monday. “This is where the fact that there’s a lot of days in between games during the finals helps us, so we’ll see.” Durant didn’t travel to Houston for Game 6 of that round or to Portland for the two road games against the Trail Blazers in the Western Conference finals. He remained in the Bay Area to rehab,

and the Warriors are unbeaten without him. An impending free agent this summer, he was hurt May 8 when he landed awkwardly on his right foot following a baseline jumper late in the third quarter of a 104-99 victory over the Rockets at Oracle Arena. Durant is averaging 34.2 points per game this postseason. Kerr said Durant has been spending countless hours rehabbing to recover — hoping to get back soon to what he loves most. “You get that fear of missing out on stuff, like practices and shootarounds and new game plans and stuff like that. That’s what I miss the most, obviously, grinding on the court individually and with my team. But that’s out of my hands. Out of my control,” Durant said Friday. “My task is to try to conquer this, and I think that’s the jour-

ney (we’re) on as basketball players. So I’m pretty much down for anything but I’m excited that I’m making progress.” Center DeMarcus Cousins, out with a torn left quadriceps muscle he injured in Game 2 of the first round against the Clippers, hadn’t been ruled out for Game 1 though Kerr mentioned the magnitude of coming back on the finals stage after so much missed time. Cousins — in his first career postseason — scrimmaged Saturday and again Monday, a sign of progress he is closer to being ready. “I feel better each and every day. That’s my whole goal, to make sure I get better with each day that comes,” Cousins said last week. “Hopefully, that opportunity comes, and I’m able to get on the floor and help my teammates and try to help them win a cham-

Sports Briefs Twins put Pineda on 10-day MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have put pitcher Michael Pineda on the 10-day injured list with right knee tendinitis and promoted Devin Smeltzer to take his place in the rotation. The move was made Tuesday, with Smeltzer scheduled to make his major league debut against Milwaukee. Pineda gave up three runs and three hits to the Brewers on Monday night, striking out six without a walk. He left with a lead in a game the Twins eventually lost. There was no sign of injury during or after the game. Manager Rocco Baldelli said the decision was a preventative measure. The knee is the same one that Pineda suffered a small tear in the meniscus last August.

49ers sign CB to 1-year deal SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have signed cornerback Dontae Johnson to a one-year deal and waived linebacker Pita Taumoepenu. The 49ers also released Anthony Davis from the retired list on Tuesday. The 2010 first-round pick last played in the NFL in 2016 when he suited up for one game. Johnson spent four years with San Francisco after being drafted in the fourth round in 2014. He played in 63 games with 149 tackles, 21 passes defensed and two interceptions returned for touchdowns. He spent time with Seattle, Buffalo and Arizona last year but didn’t play. He signed with Kansas City in February but was released last month. Taumoepenu was a sixth-round pick in 2017 and has played two games in his career.

Jets claim Burgess off waivers from Dolphins FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have claimed linebacker James Burgess off waivers from the Miami Dolphins. The team also announced Tuesday it placed running back Jalin Moore on the reserve/non-football injury list. Burgess has 55 career tackles, four sacks, one forced fumble and three passes defensed in 17 games. The 25-year-old linebacker was signed by Miami and current Jets coach Adam Gase as an undrafted free agent out of Louisville in 2016. Burgess was among the Dolphins’ final cuts that summer, and later had stints with San Diego, Baltimore and Jacksonville before signing with Cleveland. He spent most of the past two seasons with Cleveland, where he was coached by current Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams in 2017 and ‘18. Burgess played in just three games last season before being placed on injured reserve and later released. He was signed again by Gase to Miami’s practice squad last December. Moore was recently signed as an undrafted free agent out of Appalachian State. He missed most of his senior season with an ankle injury, but finished his college career with 2,439 yards rushing and 22 touchdowns.

TIGERS 3, ORIOLES 0 BALTIMORE (AP) — Matthew Boyd took a five-hitter into the seventh inning, Niko Goodrum homered and Detroit interrupted a prolonged slump by defeating Baltimore. JaCoby Jones had two doubles and an RBI for the Tigers, who won for only the second time in 14 games since May 12. Boyd (5-4) struck out eight and allowed six hits in six-plus innings. Shane Greene got three straight outs in the ninth for his 17th save in 18 tries.

Jordan Luplow added a two-run double after Cleveland tied it and and Brad Hand survived a bit of a shaky ninth for his 14th save, completing a rare come-from-behind win for the Indians. Nick Wittgren (2-0) got the win despite allowing two runs on three hits in the eighth, his only inning.

Girlfriend competes for time with man still living with ex relationship with his exgirlfriend than he has revealed to you. If he was disconnected from her emotionally -- and possibly sexually -- he wouldn’t cut your conversations short or hide the fact that he is texting you. Unless he rearranges his priorities, Abigail Van Buren you should not only not move in with him, you should find a boyfriend with whom YOU’RE No. 1. DEAR ABBY: My wife, “Riley,” and I got married three months ago. I’m a corporate pilot and have been for most of our two-year relationship. Now she’s telling me if I don’t quit my dream job, she will leave me. I signed a year-long contract with this company, so it will cost me well over $10,000 to get out of it early. She hates my schedule, even though I work only about 11 days a month. Riley thinks I have to be home every night, even though I warned her that because of my career, I would be gone a lot of nights. She knew what she was getting into, yet she’s trying to force

Hints from Heloise


By Leigh Rubin

son in your life. Your interactions with this person could be very rewarding, though you might experience frustration at times. One-on-one relating helps eliminate the confusion that seems natural today. Tonight: Be a duo. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Defer to others, and do not take another person’s goodwill as a given. He or she could suddenly become more explosive than you thought possible. Be aware of your limits, and do not push others without thought. Tonight: Lie back. Allow another person to dominate. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Pace yourself and be aware of the rugged pace you are maintaining. Fatigue could cause a certain irritability to emerge. Take a break from others if you should feel this necessary. Understand your limitations. Work with them. Tonight: Make it an early night. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH You are often compared to a firecracker because of your high energy, independence and a certain irregularity as to where you will land. Be more direct in how you deal with a problem or greet another person who can be difficult. Tonight: Let the fun begin. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Stay anchored despite confusion and someone’s anger being close to the surface. This person might not be aware of how his or her temper is manifesting. Work with this person even if he or she simply cannot relate to your observations. Tonight: Head home early. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Speak your mind and clear the air when you encounter confusion. A financial issue might not be as clear as you might like. If you have a question or a seemingly unresolvable issue, try to bring it up in conversation where different ideas might be aired out. Tonight: Hang with friends. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Be more attentive to your finances. You might want to overspend or indulge in a purchase. Play Ralph Nader, and go for the best deal -- that is, the highest quality for the most reasonable cost. Tonight: Keep to your budget. BORN TODAY Entertainer Melanie Brown (1975), former president John F. Kennedy (1917), comedian Bob Hope (1903)


That’s a legume? Dear Readers: Did you know the PEANUT is actually a legume? A legume is a seed that grows in a pod and can be eaten. Peanuts, as well as beans and peas, belong to the plant family Leguminosae. Unlike walnuts or pecans, which grow on trees, peanuts grow underground. Research studies have shown that peanuts contain two types of antioxidants, which help to protect against various types of cancer. They also are an excellent source of protein, vitamin E, vitamin B complex and folates, and are a rich source of copper, manganese, potassium and zinc. Next time you want a snack, try some peanuts! -- Heloise NO SOUR CREAM Dear Heloise: Do you have a substitute for sour cream? My husband hates sour cream, but the recipe I want to try calls for sour cream to be mixed into the sauce. -- Kelsie A., Germantown, Tenn. Kelsie, you can try using plain yogurt, or perhaps 6 ounces of cottage cheese mixed well with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Use a blender or food processor to create a fine texture. -- Heloise HOMEMADE TRAIL MIX Dear Heloise: I love healthy wheat and oat bran cereals, but not just for breakfast; it’s easy to make a delicious trail mix snack with them. To the cereal I can add nuts, pretzels, dried fruit, candy-coated chocolates, marshmallows, corn chips ... the possibilities are many! -- Anne in Texas

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, May 29, 2019: This year, you have the charm and energy to manifest your goals. Do not let this period go without making one wish a reality. If single, many people would like to be your main squeeze, if not more. Decide who and what you want. If attached, you will experience greater closeness than in the past. As a couple, you achieve one of your life goals. ARIES knows how to push you in a certain direction. 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 act energized and might feel unusually content. You have a hot temper and understand what you need to do to calm the waters. Confusion surrounds your conversations, no matter how clear you want to be. Tonight: Beam in more of what you want. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Listen to what is going on. You might find that a friend has a hidden agenda. You will not be able to get past his or her defenses. On the other hand, in another area of life, you could be delighted by what comes your way. Tonight: Not to be found. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Zero in on what you want. You could experience anger and frustration; use these feelings to energize yourself. Vagueness or confusion surrounds your plans and communication. Do not be surprised if something backfires. Tonight: Where your friends are. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Take charge of how you project in an important situation that surrounds your work. You always want to put your best foot forward but cannot with this matter impacting you. Clear it out! Tonight: Think about trying another approach. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Use your imagination and knowledge to take in the big picture. The right solution will appear. Your hot temper emerges out of the blue if you hit frustration. Do not let the circumstances sit. Instead, take energy from the situation to change it. Tonight: Consider what has not been said. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Deal directly with a special per-

me into giving up this dream job or lose her. Please help. -- TORN IN THE SOUTH DEAR TORN: Riley knew you were a pilot when she married you. You explained to her what that meant. That she would threaten to leave you because she doesn’t like the responsibilities your career carries with it is immature and controlling. If she was serious when she made the ultimatum, I think you should take her up on it. And before you marry anyone else, be sure the woman is independent.

DEAR ABBY: I have been dating my boyfriend for two years. He is 10 years older, in his mid-40s. He is wonderful, kind, smart, and treats me well. There is only one issue: He still lives with his ex-girlfriend from 10 years ago. She and I do not get along. She infringes on my time with him -- has him run her errands, drive her around, etc. when I am at his (their) house. He also ends calls with me at night to talk with her, and his texts abruptly stop. Later I’ll find out she was in his bedroom talking/ venting to him about her current boyfriend or some other subject. She recently put in an offer to buy a house that was accepted. After she moves out of the house they are renting, he plans to remain there and would like me to move in with him. Here’s the catch: He says he will be going over to her (new) house to mow the lawn, rake leaves, take care of her car, etc. He says he runs these errands for her because she pays him. I have told him how much it bothers me. I feel he is placing her above me. Am I crazy for being upset over this? -- SECOND BEST IN VIRGINIA DEAR SECOND BEST: You’re not crazy. Unless your boyfriend is hard up for money, it appears there may be more to his

Anchorage man charged with assaulting mother, blaming bear

Around Alaska Anchorage public cemetery is running out of burial space

ANCHORAGE (AP) — An Alaska man assaulted his 76-year-old mother, possibly with a brick, and blamed the attack on a bear, police said. Karl Engelke, 50, was charged Saturday with felony assault and evidence tampering, Anchorage TV station KTVA reported. He remained jailed Monday in Anchorage. Online court records do not list an attorney who could speak on his behalf. An Anchorage police dispatcher received a 911 call Saturday and heard a wom-

an say “help me quick” and “leave me alone,” according to court documents. The phone line then went dead. Police said they went to the home in the foothills of the Chugach Mountains and spoke to Engelke, who appeared to have a blood splatter on him. He said a bear had attacked his mother and that she likely had made the call. Police called in the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to help conduct a search for a bear, police spokesman RJ Thim said in an email response to ques-

tions Monday. Police and wildlife officials set up a perimeter and began a search. Instead of a bear, searchers found Marlyss Engelke in a shed behind the home, Thim said. “No bear was found because a bear didn’t attack the victim,” Thim said. She was bleeding, missing teeth and throwing up blood. She had cuts to her head and face. Police found a broken cellphone nearby. At the hospital, Marlyss Engelke was diagnosed with facial fractures, broken ribs and bruised lungs, and she

needed surgery, court documents said. She told police that her son may have become upset because she wanted him to move out of the house. She said she believed Karl Engelke had hit her with a brick, assaulted her inside and outside the house and dragged her across the yard. Marlyss Engelke said that after she called 911, he hit the phone with the brick. Investigators said Karl Engelke had cleaned up blood in the house and put clothing he had worn into a trash compactor. His bail was set at $25,000.

of Alaska. In honor of the children who took the initiative to protect the seal, the staff at the SeaLife Center requested that those same students give the seal her name. The students decided on Saktuliq, which is the Inupiaq spelling of Shaktoolik and translates

to “scattered things.” “Our village is one of the oldest villages in Alaska and is quite historical,” Shaktoolik Elementary teacher Ethel Fuller said in a May 28 press release. “Naming this seal Saktuliq will help honor our home and community.” Saktuliq arrived at the

SeaLife Center severely underweight, but according to the press release her condition has improved significantly. Saktuliq has nearly tripled her weight from 23 kilograms to 68 kilograms since arriving at the center. Saktuliq is now visible in the Center’s I.Sea.U critical care unit.

stances causing crime rates to increase. Most of the reforms in HB 49 come in the form of harsher sentences for sex crimes, drug possession and drug distribution. The bill makes it a crime to be in possession of tools used in motor vehicle theft and aggregates instances of theft that occur within five

years of each other for the purposes of sentencing. The bill also eliminates marriage as a defense in certain cases of sexual assault and requires anyone registered as a sex offender in another state to also register in Alaska upon arrival. Sen. Peter Micciche, RSoldotna, whose campaign

platform was based largely on criminal justice reform, said that the legislation marks a victory for Alaskans who have been pushing for increased public safety since the election last November. “I’m proud to say that (SB 91) has been repealed, and we cast a wide enough net to deal with all the issues Alaskans

were facing with crime,” Micciche said. The final version of HB 49 passed the House of Representatives last week, but the members of the Senate gave themselves time to review the legislation before voting on it. Micciche said that while most of the changes made by the conference committee were

similar to those in the Senate’s version of the bill, it was important to look over the text one last time before sending it to the governor. “We just wanted to make sure that there were no unintended consequences in the bill,” Micciche said. “There’s no question that it covered all the bases.”

tion by standing close to one of the troopers and speaking in a loud voice. The charges against Bartlett were ultimately dismissed, but Bartlett sued claiming his arrest was retaliation for comments he made to the officers. The court rejected Bartlett’s argument, ruling that when officers have probable cause for an arrest, the person who

was arrested generally can’t sue and argue that their arrest was retaliation for something they said. Roberts wrote that if Bartlett’s arguments were to prevail “policing certain events like an unruly protest would pose overwhelming litigation risks.” “Any inartful turn of phrase or perceived slight during a legitimate arrest could land an officer in years of litigation,”

Roberts wrote. The Alaska Department of Law, which represented the officers in the case, said in a statement that it was pleased with the decision, which will result in the lawsuit Bartlett brought against the troopers being dismissed. The court did add one qualification to its ruling. The justices gave the example of a person who has been com-

plaining about police conduct who is arrested for jaywalking, which rarely results in an arrest. The justices said in a case like that, if the person can prove that he was arrested when other jaywalkers had not been, he could move forward with a retaliatory arrest lawsuit. One of Bartlett’s attorneys, Kerri Barsh, said she was disappointed with the outcome for her client. But she said she was

pleased the court acknowledged there was at least a narrow category of cases where the fact that probable cause exists doesn’t close the door to lawsuits. “The facts mean a lot in these cases,” she said. Bartlett had been supported by numerous First Amendment and media organizations, including The Associated Press. The case is Nieves v. Bartlett, 17-1174.

ANCHORAGE (AP) — The Anchorage public cemetery may run out of burial space within the next eight years, officials said. The 103-year-old Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery is filling at a high rate, The Anchorage Daily News reported Monday. The 22-acre cemetery on the edge of downtown is managed by the municipality and has space for 17,525 grave plots. Most of those are public, nearly 80% have been claimed and reservations have tripled in recent years, said cemetery director Rob Jones. The rest are owned by private groups that pay the city annual maintenance costs and dictate who is buried there, he said. The unused portions of certain private sections, or tracts, in the northernmost areas may remain that way for another 200 years, Jones said. The ownership structure goes back to President Woodrow Wilson’s 1915 executive order establishing the public cemetery, which decreed that up to half the tracts should be sold at auction to “qualified religious and fraternal organizations,” Jones said. Groups that bought tracts include the Catholic Archdiocese of Anchorage, Free and Accepted Masons, American Legion, Pioneers of Alaska, Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, and the Loyal Order of the Moose. Membership in fraternal organizations has declined and those burials now represent a fraction of annual interments. “We have quite a few plots left,” said Bruce Haas, Anchorage Moose Lodge administrator. “I don’t think any of the tract owners are up against the wall for space.”
