In the news Koyukuk man detained on suspicion of firstdegree murder ANCHORAGE — A man from the Yukon River village of Koyukuk has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder. Alaska State Troopers say 27-year-old Conrad Jones is in custody in Fairbanks. Online court records do not list his attorney. Troopers just after 1:30 p.m. Wednesday received a report of a homicide in Koyukuk, a village of 89 about 290 miles west of Fairbanks. Troopers traveled to the village. They determined that Jones had a confrontation with another person and caused the person’s death.

Wasilla plane crash kills sole person on board ANCHORAGE — Wasilla police say one person has died in a plane crash near the local airport. Anchorage television station KTUU reports the crash occurred near the Wasilla airport at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday. Police say an officer was conducting a security check at the airport and witnessed the crash. The person who died was the only person aboard the plane.

Second defendant sentenced in theft of mammoth tusk ANCHORAGE — A second man has been sentenced in the theft of a fossilized woolly mammoth tusk from an Anchorage museum. Federal prosecutors say 41-year-old Gary Boyd of Wasilla was sentenced Wednesday to 33 months in prison. It’s the same sentence U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason handed out in April to co-conspirator Martin Elze. Both were convicted of removal of a paleontological resource. Boyd and Elze on March 18, 2018, broke into a Bureau of Land Management museum, stole the tusk, cut it into pieces and sold them. After prison, Boyd will be on supervised release for three years and banned from national parks, national forests or BLM land without permission from his probation officer. — Associated Press

Public to weigh in on bed tax By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

A bed tax was introduced at the May 7 Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting, and residents will have the opportunity to speak to it at Tuesday’s meeting. The 12% bed tax would

affect temporary lodging, which includes motels, hotels and bed and breakfast businesses, across the borough, and be exempt from general sales tax. The tax is estimated to generate over $1 million in additional revenues in FY 2020, and over $4 million in the next two fiscal years, ac-

cording to the ordinance. The bed tax, similar to ones defeated by the borough assembly in 2017 and 2018, is being proposed to close budget shortfalls facing the borough, a memo from Assembly Vice President Dale Bagley reads. “Due largely to the state’s

current economic crisis and proposed reductions of state funds to local governments, the borough is currently facing a budgetary shortfall estimated to be substantial,” the memo said. “The fiscal situation has worsened and the borough needs to close See BED, page A2

Bird-watchers flock to the peninsula By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Since the beginning of May, the Kenai Peninsula has been for the birds — and the birders. The Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival drew nearly 1,000 people to Homer from around the globe to start off the month, and over the past several weekends the Kenai Peninsula Birding Festival has offered bird-watching enthusiasts even more opportunities to meet their fellow birders and hopefully cross a few rare species off their checklists. For the past 14 years, the event was a four-day festival, but this year the event took place over three weekends — from May 18 to June 1. Ken Tarbox, who organizes the Kenai Birding Festival every year with the Keen Eye Bird Club, said they wanted to

make it easier for people to participate in different activities by giving more time in between each event. The extended schedule also

helped the volunteers fit the guided walks into their schedules. The first weekend featured a guided walk at the Kasilof River Flats as


well as the annual 24-hour Midnight Sun Big Sit at the Kenai Wildlife Viewing Platform on Bridge Access See BIRD, page A2

Assembly considers repealing need for voter approval on sales tax cap By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

An ordinance removing required voter approval to increase the borough’s sale tax cap will be introduced at Tuesday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting. The ordinance, introduced by assembly members Kelly Cooper and Kenn Carpenter, would not raise the sales tax cap, which has been $500 since 1964 when the borough was established. Prior to 2005, voter approval was not required to increase the cap on the amount of sales subject to the borough’s sales tax. In 2005, voters approved an initiative imposing a requirement that any increase in the maximum sales tax may not take effect until ratified by voters during borough elections. In a May 23 memo from Cooper and Carpenter, they said $500 in 1964 would be worth $3,222, due to inflation. See CAP, page A3

UA official discusses streamlining university programs By Alex McCarthy Juneau Empire

At this point, budget cuts are the norm for the University of Alaska system. In the past five years, the university has had to cut about 1,200 jobs, University of Alaska Southeast Chancellor Rick Caulfield said to the Juneau Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. This year, with extensive budget cuts proposed by Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s administration, university officials are bearing down and seriously looking at the future of the university system. One of those options, Caulfield said, is having just one accredited university instead of three. Instead of the three universities (Anchorage,

Fairbanks and Southeast) all ter approach,” Caulfield said. having their own programs It’s an idea that’s been and their own autonomy, they floated in the past, he said, but would all have a “cookie-cut- the Alaska Legislature is ask-

ing the Board of Regents to do it once again. “A lot of people have said over the years, ‘Why do we have three universities? Why don’t we just have a single University of Alaska?’” Caulfield said. “You can think about that and there’s a logic to it in terms of efficiencies and so forth, but at the same time, Alaska is a vast state. The programs and the needs of students in the Anchorage area are quite different than in Fairbanks and are quite different in Southeast Alaska.” The Board of Regents will soon form a task force to look into it, Caulfield said, and members of the task force will likely have recommendations for the regents (and for the Legislature) in September

or November. The Legislature’s request for this task force, Caulfield said, is included in the Legislature’s budget proposal — which has not yet been passed. That proposal, which was put together by a committee of members from both the House and Senate, would cut the university system’s budget by just $5 million instead of more than $130 million (or 41% of the state’s funding for the system) as proposed by the governor. The issue of accreditation has been a hot topic this year for the system, as UAA lost its accreditation for its education program in December. Caulfield said Thursday that “it should never have happened, See UA, page A3

Dunleavy removes 3 human rights panel members By Becky Bohrer Associated Press

JUNEAU — Gov. Mike Dunleavy removed three members of Alaska’s human rights commission Thursday, completing a near-total overhaul of the typically underthe-radar commission more than two months after a so-

cial media uproar put it in the spotlight. Dunleavy spokesman Matt Shuckerow said by email that Christa BruceKotrc of Ketchikan, Megan Mackiernan of Nome and Kathryn Dodge of Fairbanks are being replaced. The new appointees to the seven-member commission

are William Craig of Sitka, Elizabeth “Betsy” Engle of Fairbanks and Evelyn Falzerano of Anchorage According to the commission’s website, Bruce-Kotrc was first appointed in 2011, which made her the longestserving current member. Mackiernan was recently elected chairwoman and said

Thursday the commission had been moving forward. With Thursday’s changes, all but one member of the commission will have been appointed by Dunleavy. “This change will further help restore trust in the Commission tasked with protecting the rights of all Alaskans,” Shuckerow said

in an email. The stated mission of the Alaska State Commission for Human Rights is to “eliminate and prevent discrimination for all Alaskans.” The commission’s website says it’s tasked with enforcing state human rights law. It accepts and investiSee RIGHTS, page A3

UAA hockey to play home games on campus

Raven with dart in head euthanized in Juneau

ANCHORAGE (AP) — The University of Alaska Anchorage hockey program will play home games on campus next season, officials said. The university has announced it will move games out of Sullivan Arena in Anchorage and into the Wells Fargo Sports Complex for

the 2019-2020 season, The Anchorage Daily News reported Wednesday. The move comes as the university faces “increasing financial constraints due to state budget cuts requiring the university to evaluate its venue needs,” according to a statement by the athletic department.

Relocating games from Alaska’s largest entertainment venue, which seats about 6,300 for hockey, to the smaller campus venue will save $200,000 per year, said university athletic director Greg Myford. Capacity at the Wells Fargo rink, which has seating See PLAY, page A3

The raven who was flying around downtown Juneau with a blow dart lodged in its head was euthanized Tuesday night, Kathy Benner from the Juneau Raptor Center said. Benner, the manager of

the JRC, said in an email Wednesday that someone trapped the raven in a gated area at the Glory Hall homeless shelter at about 1 p.m. Tuesday. JRC personnel were called to the scene and were able to catch the bird — which had been eluding them since early April. See DART, page A3

From 6 a.m. Saturday, May 18 to 6 a.m. Sunday, May 19, the Big Sit served as a bird-watching base camp, with birders coming and going throughout the day to observe the multitude of birds that hang out on the Kenai River Flats. Tarbox said that this year at least 30 people helped to identify 56 species of birds over the 24-hour period, with some people stopping by briefly during their lunch break and others staying for several hours at a time. Toby Burke, who started the Midnight Sun Big Sit seven years ago, said that one man even showed up to the viewing platform at 5 a.m. Sunday morning after working the night shift. “When you can get 56 species in one day, that makes for a great experience for someone new to the area,” Tarbox said. There are other Big Sit events that take place at different times all over the world — including a national one every October.

is on Oct. 1. If the tax is approved by both the assembly and the voters, it would take effect April 1, 2020. Since the ordinance was introduced, both Kenai and Soldotna have passed resolutions related to the ordinance. In a May 17 email to Mayor Charlie Pierce and Assembly President Wayne Ogle, Kenai City Manager Paul Ostrander requested a work session with the assembly and the borough’s municipalities to better understand the impact of the ordinance. It is unclear if the work session has been planned. On May 15, the city of Kenai passed a resolution supporting the borough’s ordinance in establishing a temporary lodging tax. The lodging tax could po-

tentially effect 28 motels, hotels and bed and breakfast establishments within the city. In 1991, the city had its own hotel and motel bed tax at 5%, but it was suspended in 1996 due to the possibility of adverse affects on the local lodging operators, a memo from Ostrander said. Ostrander’s memo also says “Kenai businesses have expressed that RV and tent sites should be subject to any Temporary Lodging Tax to provide equity and assure competitiveness with motels, hotels and bed and breakfasts.” On May 22, the city of Soldotna passed a similar resolution in support of the borough’s ordinance. Their resolution says the city could gain approximately $140,000 in additional revenue annually

if the tax was implemented, which would be used toward activities and services designated by the city. In Alaska, 49 cities and boroughs have a bed tax, ranging from 4% to 12%. The ordinance would exempt temporary lodging rentals from the general sales tax rate and instead would levy a maximum bed tax of 12%. “These additional sales taxes would be used to support education,” Bagley’s memo said. “They would also make other revenues available for services funded by property taxes and help to sustain the general fund.” A public hearing on this ordinance will take place at the June 4 meeting.

Among the 56 species identified on Saturday were peninsula regulars like cackling geese and sandhill cranes, as well as a few rarer sightings, including a couple pairs of red-throated loons, a solitary snow goose and a northern flicker, which is a type of woodpecker. Burke

said that this was the first time in his 35 years of bird-watching that he had seen a northern flicker on the peninsula, although they are relatively common throughout the rest of the country. The weekend of May 25 featured another guided walk at the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, and this weekend will mark the end of the festival with two more walks at Bishop Creek and Stormy Lake in the Captain Cook State

Recreation Area. Tarbox said anyone interested should meet in the Bishop Creek parking lot by 8 a.m on Saturday. Tarbox, Burke and other volunteers will lend their expertise to the more novice birders by helping to identify bird songs and map out hot spots along the way.

Ronald Albert Malston April 3, 1934 - May 23, 2019

Ronald Albert Malston, 85 years old, passed away at home surrounded by his loving family on May 23, 2019. Ron was born in Portland, Oregon April 3, 1934 to William and Leona Malston. At the age of 14, his family headed north over the Al-Can Highway and settled in Fairbanks, Alaska. Ron joined the Army after high school and served his country from 1957-1959 in Munich, Germany. Ron met the love of his life, Ruth Hering, and they were married on August 6, 1960. As a teenager Ron worked for Northern Commercial Company. He returned to NCC following his military service. In 1967, Ron and his family were transferred to Kenai where he served as Store Manager. NCC transferred him once more, to Anchorage, for a couple of years before he decided to return to Kenai for good. He opened his own store, Malston’s, in 1971. Malston’s began as a men’s and boy’s wear store, later converted to a full department store, then returned to men’s wear and tuxedo rentals. He also operated Old Town Trophies. Ron helped outfit many generations of men for their weddings and proms. Wall and cabinets throughout the Peninsula display the many trophies, gold pans and awards engraved by him throughout his 45 years in business. Ron was a generous member of our community and gave of his time willingly to numerous organizations. He was an active member of the Kenai Lion’s Club and the Kenai Elks Club, often spotted with raffle tickets for sale in his shirt pocket! He was also a Board Member for the Peninsula Oilers, Wells Fargo and National Bank of Alaska. Ron’s civic contributions include service to the Planning and Zoning Commission, Kenai City Council, and Kenai Chamber of Commerce. He was also a former Kenai City Mayor. His family would like Ron to be remembered as a kind and caring husband, father and friend who was always willing to lend a helping hand. He enjoyed playing games, visiting friends, and family holidays with a perfectly set table. Ron truly enjoyed life and was always able to see the good in his family, friends and life in general. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Ruth, daughter Lori Mason of Des Moines, Iowa, son Richard (Ramona) Malston and daughter Kathi Malston of Kenai, Alaska, grandchildren Brandon Raymond of Dubai, UAE, Shawna (DJ) Wilmington of Atlanta, Georgia, Brady (Alison) Malston, Kyle Malston, and Samantha Dutcher of Kenai, Alaska, and 7 great grandchildren with one more on the way. He was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved grandson Austin Malston, and his son-in-law Todd Mason. A celebration of Ron’s life will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019, at the Kenai Senior Center from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Please stop by to enjoy some food and share stories during this time. Come as you are – no formal dress required! In lieu of flowers, donations in his honor could be made to the Kenai Elks Club, Kenai Lion’s Club, or an organization of donor’s choice.

Robert Allen Hensler

Graydon Skipper Cowgill Jr.

Robert Allen Hensler, 92, died May 17, 2019 at Central Peninsula Hospital after a lengthy illness. Bob was born in Toledo, Ohio but had lived and worked on the Kenai Peninsula for 50 years. He graduated high school in Lexington Kentucky and continued his education at the University of Kentucky after serving in the military. He moved to California to further his education and pursue a career in aviation as an engineer. In 1969, he moved to Soldotna after gaining employment at Union Chemical. After a couple of years he started his own business Project Managers Alaska. He was the project manager on the Soldotna High School project and other schools around the peninsula. After a few years he took a job on the North Slop with Arco and stayed there until retiring in 1992. His passion in life was flying and he had his pilots license before he had his driver’s license. He got his drivers license in the US Army where he served in Japan during WWII. During the Korean Conflict he served his country in the US Air Force. Alaska offered him many opportunities to fly and he loved landing on beaches with the big fat tundra tires on his Super Cub. He learned how to fly with floats and skis and spent all his free time in the air, weather permitting. When it was time to make that “final landing” he built and flew radio controlled airplanes. Bob was married to Kaye in 1977 when she worked for him at Project Managers Alaska. He liked to tell people he was the boss until they married, then she was the boss. Bob leaves his wife Kaye and children Lantz Hensler, Sandy Hensler Dallmann (Jeff) Robert Hensler, Susan Hensler Lee (David), Jeff Doyle (Teresa), Melanie Doyle Luhn (Wade) and Jody Doyle. He leaves numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A Military funeral is planned at a later date.

Kenai resident, Mr. Graydon (Skipper) Cowgill, Jr, 78, died Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna. Memorial services will be held 2:00 p.m. Saturday, June 1, 2019 at Kenai Christian Church, 104 McKinley Street in Kenai. Pastor Bryan Copenhaver will be officiating. Skipper was born Oct. 5, 1940 in Beaumont, Texas. He graduated from Nederland High School in 1959 in Texas. Skipper was a Machinist’s Mate 2nd Class in The U.S. Navy from 1959 – 1963. He retired as a millwright from Boise Cascade Paper Mill in DeRidder, Louisiana in 1996. In 2004 he and Mary Anne, following God’s direction, moved to Kenai. In 2005 they started The Friendship Mission with the help of many Christian friends far and near. Skipper’s love for God’s Word led him to join the Gideons International from 2005 to the present. Skipper loved fishing and hunting and was well known for his storytelling. He was preceded in death by his parents, Graydon Cowgill, Sr. and Lizzie Belle Hilliard and grandson, Gene Graham. He is survived by his wife, Mary Anne Cowgill of Kenai; daughters, Beth (Robert) Krebs and Lynn (Keith) Cochran; son, Graydon (Windi) Cowgill III; step-daughters, Kimberlee Brent, Rose Mary (Douglas) Brent, April (Jim) Owen and Jackie (Tim) Ballard; 13 grandkids, Christina, Toni, Shannon, Lacey, Cassidi, Kimber, Cader, Luke, Daniel, Little, Timothy, Rebekah, and Mary; 9 great grandkids, Bridger, Lawson, Aspen, Cameron, Stella, Arley, Liam, Connelly and Adeline Rose.

gates complaints. The commission garnered attention in March, when then-executive director Marti Buscaglia questioned on the commission’s Facebook page the appropriateness of a “Black Rifles Matter” sticker on a truck parked outside the commission’s office in Anchorage. Buscaglia has said she thought the sticker was racist and next to the picture asked: “In what world is this OK?” She took down the initial post after the page was inundated with comments, saying it offended many gun owners who saw the post as the commission being against the right to own guns when she said that was not the case. Last month, she announced

Around the same time that Buscaglia announced her resignation, two commission members said they were resigning. One, then-chairman Brandon Nakasato, said he thought new leadership was necessary for the commission to move forward. The other, Freddie Olin IV, cited personal reasons. Dunleavy swiftly announced replacements for both who, along with Sanders, were subsequently confirmed by the Legislature. Sanders has said he didn’t think the punishment for Buscaglia was severe enough. He and Barton are the only members serving at the time of the controversy who remain on the commission.

Brent Linegar has said the truck with the sticker in question was one of his. Linegar has a plumbing and heating business that was doing work at the building that day. He has said that he understood “Black Rifles Matter” to be about gun safety and “Second Amendment awareness.” On Thursday, he said some time back he received a call from the commission apologizing “for how everything went down” and said they had a good conversation. He could not remember for sure the name of the person who contacted him but thought it was Sarah. Sarah Monkton was acting director in Buscaglia’s absence but has since left that role. The current acting director, Nanette Gay, confirmed Monkton had reported reaching out. “I know the department does good work and it didn’t reflect on the rest of the employ-

ees there,” Linegar said. He said he didn’t have thoughts one way or the other on the changes Dunleavy made to the commission. “I think the governor has a good head on his shoulders and knows what direction he wants to go in, and I’m sure he’s making the right decision,” he said. Bruce-Kotrc, who said she’d gotten a call from the Office of Boards and Commissions Thursday thanking her for her service and saying she was being relieved from her role, said she enjoyed serving and wishes the commission well. She said every commission deliberation she was involved in was thorough, thoughtful and carefully considered. “I hope that that deliberative process will continue for the benefit of the citizens of the state of Alaska,” she said.

What others say

Until law is settled, court should keep clinic open Missouri’s only remaining

abortion clinic may close Friday — the result of a relentless and unconstitutional campaign against women that’s been led by state officials, the legislature and Gov. Mike Parson. Without a court order, Missouri could become the first state in the union in more than four decades to have zero abortion providers, threatening the rights of more than one million reproductive-age women in the state. “Missouri would be the first state in the country to go dark, without a health center that provides safe, legal abortion care,” said Leana Wen, the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “This is a real public health crisis.” A state official said Tuesday that a final decision on the St. Louis clinic will be made by Friday. Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of St. Louis filed a lawsuit Tuesday, asking the court to keep the facility open. Among other things, the suit argues that closing the clinic would threaten poor women, as well as women in rural areas who would have to travel to other states to obtain needed medical services if the clinic is closed. For that reason alone, the court should order Missouri to renew the facility’s license. But this is also a political and constitutional crisis. Missouri’s efforts to prevent women from obtaining safe, legal abortions violates the fundamental rights of its citizens, no matter where they live or how much they earn. In recent weeks, Missouri’s Department of Health and Senior Services has tried to close the state’s only clinic through a series of inspections and requests that serve no real purpose other than to shut the facility down. The lawsuit lists a series of meetings and messages in which the clinic attempted to address the state’s cooked-up licensing concerns, to no avail. “It has long been the State’s objective to eliminate abortion access in Missouri,” Planned Parenthood says. “And the State has come close to succeeding, using a series of medically irrelevant and onerous requirements to prevent health centers that stand ready to provide abortion services from being allowed to do so.” In Missouri, lawmakers have imposed a flood of regulations aimed at making it all but impossible for facilities providing this legal procedure to remain open. The state’s threat to pull the last remaining clinic’s license is confirmation that abortion opponents are in grave danger of succeeding. Shamefully, Missouri could provide the country with its first glimpse of what life after an overturned Roe v. Wade would look like. The prospects are frightening, and women’s rights are disappearing before our eyes. No one from the governor’s office or the state’s Department of Health and Senior Services immediately responded to a request for comment on the case. The reason seems obvious: Missouri’s abortion regulations have nothing to do with protecting patient health or safety. They’re designed to stop a legal procedure that some lawmakers and bureaucrats oppose. That opposition continues to do serious damage to Missouri’s reputation. Companies won’t want to conduct business in a state so hostile to women’s rights. Who would choose to move to Missouri, or study at its universities, or contribute to its economy when women are considered second-class citizens? Even some prominent Republicans agree with this concern. A petition drive is now underway to put the most recent restrictions, which criminalize abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy with no exceptions for rape or incest, up for a public vote in 2020. So, the state’s voters could have the opportunity to protect the Constitution and the right to this procedure. Until then, though, the court should keep the St. Louis clinic open. After that, the case could wind its way through the state’s courts, and land on the desk of the state Supreme Court. That’s what happened in Kansas, and now the fundamental right to an abortion is embedded in that state’s constitution. The governor and other state officials are trying to prevent women from exercising their rights. The courts, and voters, must stop them. — The Kansas City Star, May 29

A laska V oices M alcolm M ilne Last July I saw some beautiful bright sockeye coming off of small boats and being cared for at the cleaning tables in the Homer Harbor, China Poot Reds. A quick search on social media tells some of the story: “Dipnetting red salmon in China Poot creek. 12 fish in 10 minutes!” and “Any news on China Poot? My dipnet is calling me.” Along with these posts are amazing photos and videos showing Alaskans partaking in this personal use red salmon fishery, nestled in China Poot Creek across Kachemak Bay. As a board member for the Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association (CIAA), I have been thinking about this fishery along with all the other fisheries that CIAA helps provide. Mention of CIAA tends to evoke passionate feelings one way or the other in the Homer area, especially concerning the Tutka Bay Lagoon Hatchery. I am a Homer-area resident and I want to share my perspective on the benefits of having salmon hatcheries contributing to our community.

One of the best examples of a mutual benefit to CIAA and the lower Cook Inlet community is the China Poot Bay fishery, which supports personal, sport and commercial fisheries. Red salmon are raised to the smolt stage at Trail lakes Hatchery near Moose Pass and have been stocked into China Poot Lake for more than 40 years. The returning adult salmon cannot ascend the waterfall outlet to the lake, which also prevents a natural run. The fish are therefore available for harvest by the community. A portion of the return is also reserved for “cost recovery.” CIAA bids the cost recovery out to a processor who is responsible for catching that portion of the fish and returning the proceeds to CIAA. That revenue helps cover the costs of raising and releasing the fish. Because the return to China Poot is relatively small, CIAA relies on cost recovery of pink salmon returning to Tutka Bay Lagoon Hatchery to cover a large portion of the expenses of raising the fish as well as helping to fund CIAA’s habitat restoration and educational outreach. While cost recovery provides the bulk of CIAA funding, another source is from Cook Inlet commercial fishermen. It is these fishermen that are not only providing revenue through a tax levied on their harvest, but also volunteer time towards the governance of CIAA that allows the China Poot fishery, among others, to continue for

all users — a positive contribution when typically all you hear about concerning Cook Inlet salmon fisheries is centered on “allocation wars.” In addition to being a personal use and sport fisherman I am a commercial fisherman; I’ve been doing that since I arrived here and camped out on the Homer Spit in 1994. These days my family and I own and operate the 48-foot F/V Captain Cook. In the summer I’m lucky enough to seine for salmon in Lower Cook Inlet. Other salmon fisheries like Prince William Sound and Kodiak tend to net more dollars, but I enjoy being able to fish out of Homer. Last summer I had a fun crew. My skiff man, John, grew up in Nanwalek and is a natural; on deck I had Neil from Nikolaevsk and Sirena who grew up in Seldovia. My daughter came out too — Kachemak Bay kids who like to laugh and love fishing their local waters. They even went dip netting at China Poot. So, if you are heading over to China Poot this summer to catch some reds, please remember where these fish came from. You might want to add “#CookInletAquacultureAssociation” to that social media post. Malcolm Milne is a longtime commecial fisherman and a board member of the Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association.

News and Politics

Trump erupts after special counsel says he’s not exonerated By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump angrily assailed special counsel Robert Mueller’s motives on Thursday, a day after Mueller bluntly rebuffed Trump’s repeated claims that the Russia investigation had cleared him of obstructing justice. The president also offered mixed messages on Russia’s efforts to help him defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign. Early in the day, Trump tweeted he had “nothing to do with Russia helping me get elected.” That was the first time he seemed to acknowledge that Russia tried to help his campaign. Then on the White House South Lawn, Trump told reporters: “Russia did not help me get elected. You know who got me elected? You know who got me elected? I got me elected. Russia didn’t help me at all.” Mueller’s report said Russia interfered in the election in hopes of getting Trump elected, but his findings and intelligence officials have stopped short of saying the efforts contributed to Trump’s victory. Trump’s 20-minute eruption underscored that he remains deeply distressed over the probe that has shadowed his presidency for nearly two years, even after Mueller announced his resignation and the closure of his office. Democrats are mulling the possibility of impeachment proceedings. Trump insisted that he’s been tough on Russia and that Moscow would have preferred Clinton as president. But that’s not what Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. When asked last year in Helsinki whether he wanted Trump to become president, Putin replied: “Yes, I did.”

On Wednesday, Mueller, in his first public remarks on the Russia investigation, pointedly rejected Trump’s claims — repeated almost daily — that the special counsel’s investigation cleared him of criminal activity and was a “witch hunt.” Mueller emphasized that he had not exonerated Trump on the question of whether he obstructed justice, but said charging Trump with any crime was “not an option” because of Justice Department rules. “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mueller declared. Attorney General William Barr, however, said Mueller could have reached a decision on whether Trump obstructed justice. Barr said in an interview with “CBS This Morning” that though Justice Department rules prevent the indictment of a sitting president, Mueller nonetheless could have decided whether Trump had committed a crime. Trump repeated his baseless claims that Mueller is “conflicted,” contending that Mueller, who served as FBI director under President George W. Bush, wanted his old job back, but that he had told him no. He said Mueller, a Republican, was “a true never Trumper” and “didn’t get a job that he wanted very badly.” Mueller had been considered for the FBI director position shortly before being named as special counsel. But then-White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has said that while the White House had invited Mueller to speak to the president about the FBI and thought about asking him to become director again, Mueller did not

come in looking for a job. Trump also said Mueller should have investigated law enforcement officials who the president claims tried to undermine him. Mueller’s mandate, however, was to investigate Russian election interference, possible coordination with the Trump campaign and any obstruction of that investigation. Among those whom Trump says Mueller should have investigated were members of the special counsel’s own team, including Peter Strzok, a former FBI agent who helped lead the investigation and exchanged anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 election with ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page. Strzok was removed from Mueller’s investigative team following the discovery of the texts and later was fired from the FBI. Page has left the bureau. Strzok told Congress that there was “no conspiracy” at the FBI to prevent Trump from becoming president. Trump, asked about impeachment by Congress, called it a “dirty word” and said he couldn’t imagine the courts allowing him to be impeached. “I don’t think so because there’s no crime,” he said. Mueller made clear that his team never considered indicting Trump because the Justice Department prohibits the prosecution of a sitting president. He and others have indicated that the next move, if any, is up to Congress, which has the power of impeachment. Trump has blocked House committees’ subpoenas and other efforts to dig into the Trump-Russia issue, insisting Mueller’s report has settled everything.

Nation Busy tornado season catches naive Easterners off guard By DAVID PORTER Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. — As a tornado bore down on the western edge of New Jersey, some residents prepared for the worst, while others were caught off guard, despite bulletins from meteorologists and extensive coverage by television and radio stations. Marie Raffay was at a high school athletic awards banquet in Stanhope on Tuesday night with her husband and two sons when they and others noticed the sky darkening, accompanied by thunder and lightning. “We figured it was a typical late afternoon storm,” Raffay said. “Then the windows got pushed in by the pressure. I said to another woman, ‘I don’t think we should be stand-

ing there.’” One person in the group mentioned getting a tornado warning on his phone, said Raffay, a civil engineer, but others were unaware. The nation has seen a surge in tornadoes this month, with Tuesday setting a record as the 12th consecutive day with at least eight reported. Some tornado warnings have edged into areas of the East Coast unaccustomed to such storms, where many people are not conditioned to hear or heed such alerts. New Jersey gets a handful of tornadoes per year on average. Two twisters hit New York City on one day in 2012, but only about 60 had hit the area in the 50 years before that, according to the National Weather Service. “The fact is that in New

Jersey, tornadoes are too rare for there to be a welldesigned warning system in most communities, nor a properly educated public who know what to do when a warning is issued,” said David Robinson, the state’s climatologist and a professor at Rutgers University. Tuesday’s tornado damaged Lenape Valley Regional High School’s

facade and ripped up a softball dugout, depositing the roof on its side on the ground. Toppled trees and power lines left most residents without electricity. In Ohio, where tornadoes are far more common, meteorologists went on the offensive Monday night with aggressive tornado warnings, actions several officials said saved lives.

Energy secretary says US can make oil, gas, coal cleaner

SALT LAKE CITY — The Trump administration is committed to making fossil fuels cleaner rather than imposing “draconian” regulations on oil, gas and coal, U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry said Thursday. Perry made his remarks at an energy conference in Salt Lake City that was

briefly interrupted when protesters took the stage to criticize the administration’s fixation on fossil fuels as a misguided approach that ignores climate change. The demonstrators were escorted out by police. The former Texas governor said the government has proven it can make traditional energy sources cleaner. “Instead of punishing fuels that produce emissions

through regulation, we’re seeking to reduce those emissions by innovation,” Perry said. “We have proved that we can make our energy cleaner without surrendering one, single fuel, one bit of growth, one iota of opportunity.” Perry told reporters that efforts are already underway to reduce emissions by using liquefied natural gas and shuttering old, inefficient coal plants. Perry previously said the Trump administration wants to spend a half-billion dollars next year on fossil fuel research and development as demand plummets for coal and surges for natural gas. Lindsay Beebe of the Sierra Club in Utah said trying to make fossil fuels cleaner is misspent energy. “I don’t know that it’s possible right now, but what

is ready right now are renewables. Wind, solar and geothermal are commercially viable and at scale,” Beebe said. Perry also touted the importance of increasing nuclear energy and geothermal energy. A report released Thursday by the Department of Energy suggests geothermal electricity generation could increase 26-fold by 2050, Perry said. He also highlighted a $140 million project funded by his department to support a University of Utah research laboratory studying manmade geothermal energy. The protesters interrupted a panel discussion and stood on stage in front of the seated Perry, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon as they talked about energy policy.

New Hampshire repeals death penalty as Senate overrides veto By HOLLY RAMER Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire, which hasn’t executed anyone in 80 years and has only one inmate on death row, on Thursday became the latest state to abolish the death penalty when the state Senate voted to override the governor’s veto. The Senate vote came a week after the 400-member House voted by the narrowest possible margin to override Republican Gov. Chris Sununu’s veto of a bill to repeal capital punishment. “Now it’s up to us to stop this practice that is archaic, costly, discriminatory and final,” said Sen. Melanie Levesque, D-Brookline. With New Hampshire’s action, 29 states allow capital punishment, but in

four of them, governors have issued moratoriums on the death penalty, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. Twenty-one states have abolished or overturned it. New Hampshire’s death penalty applies in only seven scenarios: the killing of an on-duty law enforcement officer or judge, murder for hire, murder during a rape, certain drug offenses, or home invasion and murder by someone already serving a life sentence without parole. The state hasn’t executed anyone since 1939, and the repeal bill would not apply retroactively to Michael Addison, who killed Manchester Officer Michael Briggs and is the state’s only inmate on death row. But death penalty supporters argued that courts will interpret it dif-

ferently, giving Addison a chance at life in prison. “If you think you’re passing this today and Mr. Addison is still going to remain on death row, you are confused,” said Sen. Sharon Carson, R-Londonderry. “Mr. Addison’s sentence will be converted to life in prison.” Carson argued that New Hampshire has a narrowly

drawn law and a careful, deliberative process to ensure innocent people are not executed. “This is not Louisiana of the 1920s where Old Sparky was put on a flatbed truck and driven from prison to prison and people were executed. We are not those people,” she said. “That doesn’t happen here in New Hampshire.”

Former US Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi dies at 81 JACKSON, Miss. — Former U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, who served seven terms and used seniority to steer billions of dollars to his home state of Mississippi, has died. He was 81. Cochran’s final chief of staff, Brad White, said Cochran died Thursday at a veterans’ nursing home in Oxford. Cochran was elected to the U.S. House in 1972. When he won a Senate seat in 1978, he became the first Republican since Reconstruction to win statewide office in Mississippi. He led the Appropriations Committee in 200506, channeling money to Mississippi and other Gulf Coast states for Hurricane Katrina recovery after the 2005 storm, and regained the committee chairmanship in January 2015, when the GOP again took control of the Senate. He won reelection in 2014, but announced last year he was retiring because of his health. Cochran was a driving force behind more than $100 billion in funding to help Gulf Coast states recover from Hurricane Katrina. He was also a big practitioner of earmarks — home-state goodies such as highway projects, economic development grants and university research dollars. GOP leaders banned earmarking, but Cochran was backing Navy shipbuilding efforts in 2015. Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, which makes a variety of Navy ships such as modern destroyers, has long been one of Mississippi’s largest private employers. Mild-mannered and known for working across party lines, Cochran won most of his re-election campaigns easily. However, he struggled in 2014 amid a Republican primary challenge from state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who was backed by tea party groups and had significant financial support from libertarianleaning national groups that criticized Cochran as a big spender. The campaign turned ugly as supporters of his opponent photographed Cochran’s bedridden wife, without permission, in the nursing home where she had lived a dozen years with dementia. Images of Rose Cochran were posted briefly online in a video that attempted to show Cochran was having an inappropriate relationship with one of his longtime staff members, Kay Webber — an accusation that Cochran denied. Weeks after four men were arrested and charged in the photo case, Cochran placed second, behind McDaniel, in a three-person Republican primary. During the three-week runoff campaign, Cochran actively sought support from a wide variety of voters, including African-Americans who traditionally vote for Democrats. Cochran defeated McDaniel in the runoff, but McDaniel never conceded. Instead, McDaniel filed a lawsuit trying to overturn the results. He claimed the election was tainted because people who never intended to support the Republican nominee in the general election had voted in the party primary. Mississippi voters do not register by party. A judge dismissed the lawsuit, saying McDaniel had waited too long to file it, and the state Supreme Court upheld that decision. In the November 2014 general election, Cochran defeated Democratic former U.S. Rep. Travis Childers and the Reform Party’s Shawn O’Hara. Rose Cochran died in December 2014, weeks after the election and before her husband was sworn in for his seventh six-year term in the Senate. On May 23, 2015, Thad Cochran married Webber in a small ceremony in Gulfport, Mississippi. She had joined Cochran’s Senate staff in 1981 and had often travelled with him as his executive assistant. During his second stint as Appropriations Committee chairman starting in 2015, Cochran continued working to send money to Mississippi. He and the state’s other Republican senator, Roger Wicker, successfully pushed to get a national historic landmark designation for the home of Medgar Evers, the Mississippi NAACP leader who was assassinated in 1963 outside the house in Jackson. The ranch style home operates as a museum. When it gained landmark designation in January 2017, it became eligible for grants and tax credits. Thad Cochran was born in the small town of Pontotoc, in the hill country of north Mississippi, and grew up in a suburb of Jackson. He earned a bachelor’s degree and law degree from the University of Mississippi. He was an Ole Miss cheerleader as an undergraduate. — The Associated Press

7 dead, 21 missing after SKorean tour boat sinks By PABLO GORONDI and HYUNG-JIN KIM Associated Press

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Rescue crews in Hungary’s capital were preparing to raise a sightseeing boat from the bottom of the Danube River Thursday as search teams scoured the waters for 21 people missing after the vessel, packed with South Korean tourists, collided with a larger cruise ship and sank. Seven people are confirmed dead and seven were rescued, all of them South Koreans, Hungarian officials said. Hungary’s state TV reported that all those rescued have been released from the hospital except one who’s being treated for broken ribs. Police launched a criminal investigation into the incident. A South Korean group on a package tour of Europe — including 30 tourists, two guides and a photographer— were on an hour-long sightseeing tour of Budapest when their

boat collided with a Viking cruise ship amid a downpour Wednesday evening. Nineteen South Koreans and two Hungarian crew members — the captain and his assistant — remain missing. Officials said preparations to bring up the 70-year-old boat, which was built in the former Soviet Union, could take days. The sunken boat was located early Thursday near the Margit Bridge, not far from the neo-Gothic Parliament building on the riverbank. Video released by Hungarian police showed the sightseeing boat, identified as the Hableany (Mermaid), traveling closely side by side and in the same direction as a Germanbuilt Viking cruise ship as they approached the bridge Wednesday night. The Hableany then appeared to steer slightly to its left, into the path of the 443-feet long cruise ship, which continued to sail on at the same speed. The two

collided and the sightseeing boat was then seen tipping on its side between the bridge’s two supports. “As the Viking comes into contact with (the Hableany), it overturns it and in about seven seconds, as it turn on its side, it sinks,” Police Col. Adrian Pal said. Pal said it’s unclear what caused the Hableany to steer into the path of the Viking. He said several

people aboard the Hableany fell into the water after the collision. The South Korean government said none of those on board was wearing a life jacket. Police said rescue operations were hampered by the rain and the fast flow of the rising Danube. The search for the 21 missing extended far downstream, even into Serbia, where the Danube goes after leaving Hungary.

Saudi King Salman urges international effort to thwart Iran

MECCA, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia’s King Salman opened an emergency summit of Gulf Arab leaders in the holy city of Mecca on Thursday with a call for the international community to use all means to confront Iran, but he also said the kingdom extends its hand for peace. King Salman was speaking at the first of three highlevel summits in Mecca that were hastily convened after a spike in tensions between Saudi Arabia and its rival

Iran. That King Salman could bring regional leaders and heads of state to Mecca so rapidly reflects the kingdom’s weight in the region and its desire to project a unified Muslim and Arab position on Iran. Tensions have also spiked between Tehran and Washington in recent weeks, with the U.S. sending an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers to the Persian Gulf. The crisis is rooted in last year’s decision by the Trump administration to withdraw from Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers.

Around the World

Speaking at a gathering of the Gulf Cooperation Council, King Salman said the alleged sabotage of four oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates and a drone attack on a key Saudi oil pipeline earlier this month requires “serious efforts to protect the security and the gains” of the six energy-rich Arab nations. Iran denies being involved in the attacks. The king called on the international community to thwart Iran’s behaviors “and using all means to stop the Iranian regime from interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, harboring global and regional terrorist entities and threatening international waterways.” He added that Saudi Arabia remains committed to extending its hand for peace and prosperity of the region. Attending Thursday night’s GCC summit were the leaders of Kuwait and Bahrain, as well as senior officials from the United

Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar. That meeting will be immediately followed with an emergency summit of the 22-nation Arab League, minus Syria whose membership remains suspended. Putting forth a unified position on Iran, however, faces many obstacles. Within the once clubby GCC, there are major differences between countries regarding Iran. Oman, for example, has relations with both Saudi Arabia and Iran and acts as a facilitator of talks. Qatar, meanwhile, is facing a blockade by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt over its foreign policies. The diplomatic standoff has pushed Qatar closer to Iran. Qatar’s Prime Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser Al Thani’s attended the Mecca summits on Thursday, marking the highestlevel visit to Saudi Arabia by a Qatari official since the 2017 rift erupted.

LONDON — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange missed a court session Thursday, apparently due to health problems. He had been expected to appear from prison via video link at a brief extradition hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. Lawyer Gareth Peirce told the court Assange was “not very well.” Assange, 47, is in Belmarsh Prison serving a 50week sentence for jumping bail in Britain while fighting extradition to the United States, which accuses him of violating the Espionage Act by publishing secret documents containing the names of confidential military and diplomatic sources. Sweden also seeks him for questioning about an alleged rape, which Assange has denied. It is not clear which claim would take precedence. The decision would likely be made by Britain’s home secretary. Judge Emma Arbuthnot said a more substantive extradition hearing set for June 12 may be moved to a court next to Belmarsh Prison for convenience. Roughly two dozen supporters chanted “Free Assange” outside the courthouse. His case has attracted fresh support from free press advocates in the week since the U.S. filed serious espionage charges against him. He had earlier been held on suspicion of conspiracy to break into classified computer systems, a less serious charge. WikiLeaks said in a statement it has “grave concerns” about Assange’s health. The anti-secrecy group says he has been moved to the prison health ward. The group says Assange has “dramatically lost weight” and recently “it was not possible to conduct a normal conversation with him.”

Strong earthquake off coast of El Salvador SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador — A strong earthquake hit off the coast of El Salvador early Thursday, sending frightened residents running out of their homes in the pre-dawn hours. Authorities initially said a small tsunami was possible, but it did not appear. Civil defense employees were scouring the country for signs of damage, but they had reported no victims and no significant damage hours after the quake. “Monitoring of the entire country reflects that there has not been grave or widespread damage,” El Salvador’s Civil Defense agency said. The environmental ministry said in a statement that the “greatest threat of tsunami for El Salvador has passed. There have not been variations in the sea level.” Iván García of the Red Cross said it only had reports of some small landslides on highways, but with no victims. The U.S. Geological Survey reported the magnitude 6.6 quake was centered about 17 miles southsoutheast of La Libertad, a suburb of the regional capital, Santa Tecla, and it was recorded at a depth of 40 miles. The government closed 960 public schools in the coastal area for 24 hours and asked private schools to do the same. It said that several aftershocks were recorded. The earthquake was felt strongly in the capital, San Salvador. People left their homes with flashlights, and power was knocked out in at least some areas. — The Associated Press

The call to ministry V oices of F aith R ev . D ustin A tkinson

Someone going into the pastoral ministry gets asked a lot of questions. One of the most popular of these questions is, “What made you want to be a pastor?” In fact, I’ve probably been asked that question hundreds of times. I’ve written papers on it while applying for scholarships, seeking entrance into different programs, and even in my application to the seminary itself. People want to know why you want to be a pastor. The more I’ve tried answering their question, the more I’ve begun to understand why they ask it, and what my answer really is. The pastoral ministry is a strange office. As a

child, when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I didn’t know being a pastor was an option. It just didn’t seem like a thing anyone could be. I thought you had to be special. I wasn’t completely incorrect in my assessment even back then. St. Paul writes to his friend Timothy, a young pastor, saying, “If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will

he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil” (1 Ti 3:1–7). Those are some intense qualifications for the pastoral ministry. After reading them, I can understand the inquisitiveness of people learning about those who aspire to the office. One reason people ask this question so much, is to see what is different about people in the pastoral office. The pastoral ministry is a strange office, it’s filled with difficulty, but it’s also full of joy. It’s a noble calling. So, in our thoughts, this strange, noble calling has to be filled by some sort of strange, noble person. Which makes us ask,

“What makes people aspire to the ministry?” The first few times I was asked the question, “What made you want to be a pastor?” I thought that the answer they wanted was some revelation. I thought they wanted to hear about the moment where all of the sudden my thoughts were changed to the pastoral ministry. I’ve never had that moment. I couldn’t tell you when I “felt the call.” Instead, after years growing up in the Lutheran Church learning about God and what He has done for me, after the many jokes of my pastor and youth leader saying they were grooming another person for the seminary while taking confirmation classes, I asked myself the question, “Why not?” So, I set the pastoral ministry as my goal, even before I really knew what it entailed. I had faith that

God would correct my path if this wasn’t what He wanted for me. I knew it was going to be difficult, but if it wasn’t impossible then I would keep going. The more I learn about the ministry and what it involves, the more I enjoy it. It has been difficult, I’ve had to learn a lot of things, I’ve had to learn to enjoy things I used to dislike, but it’s all been worth it. What made me want to enter the pastoral ministry? I have a better answer now that I’ve experienced what the ministry is like: The ministry itself. I read a reflection of a pastor recently on Black and White and in Living Color that sums this us pretty well. The author writes, “At the end of the day, God doesn’t call us because we are wonderful, or smart, or gifted, or worthy. Ordination as pastors and priests isn’t about

us. It is about reflecting the image of Christ into our communities in ways that bear witness to the power and love of God in our midst. We are called to love everyone we encounter – those who love us, those who hate us, and those who are indifferent to our presence. All the while we point beyond ourselves to the God to whom all things journey.” If you’re looking at yourself and considering a calling to the pastoral ministry, or any other ministry for that matter, think about it long and hard. Maybe you don’t think you can do it, and that’s fine, because God can. His power is made perfect in weakness. Rev. Dustin Atkinson is the pastor of Star of the North Lutheran Church, 216 N.

Showing up


he competition is constantly changing, wherever you go. A few weeks ago at the Exit Glacier Race, I came in second during the 5-kilometer race. I had looked at last year’s results and figured I had first place locked in since 2018’s winner was a 12-year-old with a fast, but beatable, time. This year, I was the leading woman for the majority of my 23-minute race, until I wasn’t. In the last mile, or so, a woman sped past me and to the finish line first. Where did she come from? Anchorage, actually. She was down visiting Seward for the Mermaid Festival Weekend and took part in the road race, and won! The competition is constantly changing, with no guarantee year after year — it’s all about who shows up. By the time this column runs in Friday’s paper I will have ran in a Thursday night race down and around the Tonsina Point trail near Lowell Point. It’s my go-to trail run and a great place for an informal race. On Thanksgiving Day, I took home first place for women in the Tonsina Turkey Trot on the same trail. It was a small group of maybe 10 runners and three women that I often run with, so the competition was informal. But, hey, a win is a win, right? Tonight, I don’t really stand a chance of a double Tonsina trophy. I’m carpooling to the trail head with a few women I know will beat me. Like I said, it’s all about who shows up. For this race, I’m hoping to beat my own race time from last year. A benefit of showing up two years in a row, you can be your own competition. In Seward, one of the few things more competitive than running is the real estate market. So, when four empty lots in town went up for bid, it was time to talk strategy. I decided to sit this competition out (I’m still in financial training for home ownership) but watched the bidding process from the cheering section. A couple dozen sealed envelopes with secret bids were opened on a Thursday morning in city hall, with bids and names being read aloud. The bids started at $17,500, with all four lots going for something in the $30,000 range. As each lot sold, it was exciting to see the different bids people put in, to hear the names of those interested in plopping onto a First Avenue lot, and to see the reaction of the small crowd gathered to hear the results. Some people only bid on one lot, while others put a bid on all four. With each piece of 30 by 100 property, the names and prices changed. See BLUE, page A10



Raptors top Warriors in Game 1 By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

TORONTO — The first NBA Finals game outside the U.S. was a party 24 years in the making. Then Pascal Siakam and the Raptors really gave Toronto something to celebrate. Siakam scored a playoff careerhigh 32 points and the Raptors made a smashing NBA Finals debut, beating the Golden State Warriors 118-109 on Thursday night. The Raptors hardly looked like newcomers to the NBA’s biggest stage, controlling the action most of the way against a Golden State team beginning its fifth straight NBA Finals appearance. “I think we did pretty good job at home,” Siakam said. “The fans

are amazing, man. I just want to say that. From coming out for warmup to the end of the game, it was just the support and then going crazy. I’ve never seen anything like that.” Kawhi Leonard added 23 points and Marc Gasol had 20 for the Raptors, who weren’t in awe of the setting or their opponents who had played 22 NBA Finals games in the last four years. “We know that they’re human. They’re a great basketball team, talented players, high basketballIQ players,” Leonard said. “You just got to go out there and compete, take the challenge.” Stephen Curry scored 34 points and Klay Thompson had 21 for the Warriors, who had won all four Game 1s in the last four years. All those had come at home, but this

time Golden State doesn’t have home-court — or home country — advantage. “Our goal was to get one and it’s still on the table for us,” Thompson said. “So I know we’ll respond like the champions we are.” Game 2 is Sunday night in Toronto, which is hosting an NBA Finals game for the first time after the Raptors entered the league as an expansion team in 1995. The Raptors were perhaps a little jittery at the start, with Kyle Lowry firing a pass well out of bounds on their first possession. But they quickly settled in afterward, building a 10-point lead by halftime. Siakam then went 6 for 6 in the third quarter to keep Golden State from gaining much ground, and

the Raptors kept their lead around double digits for much of the final quarter, countering every attempt the Warriors made to catch up. “We didn’t play very well tonight at all and we still had a chance the entire game,” Draymond Green said. “And it was a great atmosphere. This is a team or a city, a country, that hasn’t seen a finals ever here, so we expected it to be a great atmosphere and it was. But we can still play better and I know we will.” All four of the Warriors’ previous finals were against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, and they struggled to figure out a new opponent. Toronto shot 50.6 percent from the field and the Warriors never found an answer for See NBA, page A9

Homer goes 1-1 in pool play By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

They didn’t have the start they envisioned, but by the end of opening day at the Division II state softball tournament, head coach Bill Bell had the Homer Mariners humming at full song. The Mariners split a pair of pool play games Thursday at Anchorage’s Cartee Fields, losing 11-7 to Ketchikan before dominating Hutchison 23-1. In the six-team tournament, the top team from each pool gets the benefit of playing one less game Friday, when the championship bracket begins. Homer finished second in Pool A, which was won by Ketchikan with a 2-0 record, while Hutchison finished 0-2. Sitka emerged as the top team from Pool B at 2-0, while

Kodiak took second at 1-1 and Delta Junction finished third at 0-2. Homer gets started in the championship bracket with a 12:15 p.m. game today against Delta. A win by Homer would put the Mariners into a 2:45 p.m. semifinal, while a loss drops them into the loser-out bracket with a 5 p.m. game. Thursday’s 10 a.m. game with Ketchikan wasn’t what the Mariners had in mind. Bell described it as a sluggish start. “They talked about what they want out of warmups tomorrow that’ll prepare them for hitting against (Delta),” Bell said. “From a coaches standpoint, we probably didn’t do what we needed to do, to get them fired up for the Ketchikan game. It was like we drifted out of the hotel after breakfast and up here.” Ketchikan scored five runs in

the first inning en route to taking a 6-1 lead, but Homer rallied back to go up 7-6, only to lose it with four runs allowed in the bottom of the fourth. It was a different story in the Hutchison game, as Homer raced out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning, then tacked on 10 more runs in the second to open up a commanding lead, helped by stout pitching and defense, to end the game after three innings due to the mercy rule. To demonstrate its lopsided nature, Hutchison brought 13 batters to the plate total, while Homer brought up 13 to bat in the second inning alone. The Mariners batted around in all three innings. Leadoff left-hander Grace Godfrey helped lead the charge with four RBIs, getting a pair of two-run hits to finish 2 for 3 with three runs See STATE, page A10

MIAMI — Brandon Crawford hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning, and the San Francisco Giants broke a seven-game losing streak by rallying past the Miami Marlins 3-1 Thursday. San Francisco’s Tyler Beede, recalled before the game from Triple-A Sacramento, allowed one run in six innings to lower his ERA in four appearances to 7.82. Three relievers completed a seven-hitter. The Giants averted a series sweep against the team with the National League’s worst record, and won with six hits. They trailed 1-0 in the seventh when Crawford doubled and scored on a single by Mike Yastrzemski, who earned his first career RBI. With the score 1-all, Adam Conley (1-5) walked pinch hitter Buster Posey in the eighth. Brandon Belt followed with a broken-bat single, and Evan Longoria walked to load the bases. Crawford greeted Wei-Yin Chen with a ground-rule double for a 3-1 lead. Reyes Moronta (2-4) worked a scoreless seventh. Will Smith pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save. Sandy Alcantara pitched six innings, singled home the Marlins’ lone run and worked around two hits, five walks and a hit batsman. DODGERS 2, METS 0 LOS ANGELES — HyunJin Ryu pitched four-hit ball into the eighth inning, leading Los Angeles over New York. Chris Taylor tripled off hard-luck loser Jason Vargas to start the bottom of the first and scored when Max Muncy followed with a double. That was all the offense for either See BALL, page A9

responded with, “Everything!,” “archery,” “GPS,” “figuring out what happened with the animals and looking for evidence,” “drones” and “boating safety.” One of the activities this year was a mock wildlife forensics crime scene where junior game wardens looked for clues to help solve a wildlife crime. They also got a little hands on with antlers, skulls, skins and duck identification so they could learn about what makes a moose or sheep legal to harvest, the difference between dabbling and diving ducks, the importance of the Pacific Flyway for migratory See REFUGE, page A10

Osaka overcomes slow start at Open By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

PARIS — Naomi Osaka screamed “Oh, my God!” after one shanked shot. Mouthed something and clasped her hands together, as if praying, after another. There were plenty of deep sighs and exaggerated eyerolls, too. The No. 1-seeded Osaka got off to a terrible start at the French Open again, never masking her frustration. After some slip-ups near the end, Osaka also prevailed

again, displaying the grit and groundstrokes that just won’t let her lose during what’s become a 16-match Grand Slam winning streak. Osaka trailed by a set and a break Thursday against former No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in the second round at Roland Garros, before coming all the way back to win an entertaining matchup 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 and prolong her bid for a third consecutive major championship. “I have this mindset that I feel like I can win if it gets down to the wire. Like, if

team until Kiké Hernández singled home an insurance run with two outs in the eighth. Ryu (8-1) struck out seven and walked one in 7 2/3 innings. Kenley Jansen got four outs for his 16th save as the NL West leaders took three of four in the series. Greeted by a standing ovation, Ryu has 69 strikeouts and only five walks in 11 starts.

ANGELS 9, MARINERS 3 SEATTLE — Kole Calhoun and César Puello homered, Mike Trout had three RBIs and Los Angeles battered Yusei Kikuchi for six early runs in a win over Seattle. The highly anticipated first matchup in the majors between Japanese stars Kikuchi and Shohei Ohtani was quashed when Ohtani was given the night off by Angels manager Brad Ausmus. Even without Ohtani in the lineup, Los Angeles handed Kikuchi (3-3) a second straight miserable outing. The rookie gave up 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings. He failed to strike out a batter for the first time in 13 big league starts. The Angels used Luis Garcia as an opener, but it was Félix Peña (31) shutting down the Mariners after

I have to break a person, I feel like I have the ability to do that,” Osaka said. “So I probably shouldn’t wait until the last minute.” Probably. In the first round, Osaka not only dropped the opening set, but did so by a 6-0 score. This time, Osaka ceded the first four games against Azarenka and was responsible for their match’s initial seven unforced errors. “Technically, like, she kind of killed me in the first set,” Osaka said, “and I just kept trying to find a way to

Garcia’s one inning. Peña threw 5 1/3 innings, allowing three hits and three runs. Tim Beckham hit a tworun homer, his 11th of the season, and later drove in another run on a groundout.

CARDINALS 5, PHILLIES 3 PHILADELPHIA — Dakota Hudson tossed six effective innings, Jedd Gyorko hit a two-run homer and St. Louis beat Philadelphia. Marcell Ozuna, Matt Wieters and Matt Carpenter also went deep for the Cardinals, who avoided their first sweep against Philadelphia since 2006. Hudson (4-3) allowed four hits and one run in his fourth straight quality start. Jordan Hicks got the last three outs for his 11th save in 12 tries after three relievers worked two innings. Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff (2-3) gave up four runs and eight hits in 6 1/3 innings. Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins had RBI hits and Cesar Hernandez added an RBI fielder’s choice grounder for Philadelphia.

ROCKIES 11, DIAMONDBACKS 10 DENVER — Daniel Murphy hit an RBI single in the 10th inning to lead Colorado to a victory over Arizona. The Rockies swept the four-game series and extended their winning streak to five games. Colorado’s last

Siakam, the finalist for Most Improved Player who has a nice start for an NBA Finals MVP resume. The native of Cameroon and nicknamed Spicy P was red hot, shooting 14 for 17 from the field — and he tipped in his own shot on the last of those misses with 54 seconds to play. Fans began arriving at Jurassic Park outside the arena in the morning. There were lengthy lines at the arena entrances hours before the game, with some of the few fans who weren’t wearing Raptors red sticking to their original purple uniform with the dinosaur logo. Rapper and Raptors global ambassador Drake sat in his courtside seat wearing a Curry No. 30 jersey. That’s Dell Curry, Stephen’s father who finished his career with the Raptors. The Raptors introduced Dell Curry and some of their other former players after the first quarter, a group that included perennial AllStars such as Tracy McGrady and Chris Bosh. But it wasn’t until they got Leonard in a trade with San Antonio that Toronto was finally good enough to get to the NBA Finals. He wasn’t the dominant force he was in the first three rounds, when he averaged 31.2 points. But he had eight rebounds and five assists in his first NBA Finals game since winning MVP of the 2014 championship with the Spurs. DeMarcus Cousins made it back from a torn left quadriceps to come off the bench in his first NBA Finals game, but the Warriors remained without Kevin Durant, the MVP of the last two NBA Finals. He traveled to Toronto but it’s unclear if he’ll play before the series returns to the Bay Area, with Warriors coach Steve Kerr saying he would have to go through a practice first. The Warriors had won every game since he got hurt in the second round but sure missed him against the Raptors, who are on a roll after falling behind 2-0 to Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference finals. TIP-INS Warriors: Cousins finished with three points in eight minutes. ... Green had his fifth tripledouble of the postseason with 10 points, 10 rebounds and assists, but shot just 2 for 9. ... Golden State had a 12-game winning streak in Game 1s snapped. ... Curry’s four 3-pointers gave him a record 102 in the NBA Finals and he was also 14 for 14 from the free throw line. Raptors: Danny Green went 3 for 7 from 2-point range after he was just 4 for 23 in the conference finals. ... The Raptors improved to just 4-15 in Game 1s. DRAKE AND DRAYMOND Green and Drake exchanged words at the end of the game, but the Warriors shot down a suggestion it was more than that. “It wasn’t really a scuffle because I didn’t hit him and he didn’t hit me, and I didn’t push him and he didn’t push me,” Green said. “We talked. We barked a little bit, but I wouldn’t necessarily consider that a scuffle, not really what I personally would consider a scuffle.”

stay positive.” Defending champion Simona Halep required that same sort of resolve to get through her own test, blowing a big lead in the second set and a trio of match points before holding on to beat 87th-ranked Magda Linette 6-4, 5-7, 6-3. Halep, who said afterward she felt a “little bit sick” and plans to “sleep all day tomorrow,” was up a set and 5-3 in the second before dropping four games in a row and getting broken twice while serving for the match.

four wins at home have come on walk-offs by different players. Trevor Story reached on a oneout double off Yoshihisa Hirano (0-2) and moved to third on a groundout by David Dahl. Arizona intentionally walked Nolan Arenado, and Murphy lined a single to left that scored Story. Murphy finished with three hits and three RBIs, and Story had a career-high four hits. Ian Desmond also homered. Seunghwan Oh (3-1) pitched the top of the 10th and got the win. Eduardo Escobar, Christian Walker and pitcher Taylor Clarke hit home runs for Arizona, which failed to hold the late lead and dropped its fourth straight.

RAYS 14, TWINS 3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Austin Meadows drove in four runs to back the pitching of Charlie Morton, who remained unbeaten, as Tampa Bay beat major league-leading Minnesota. Meadows delivered a three-run double in a six-run third inning against starter Martin Perez (7-2). He also singled home a run in the fourth, when the Rays scored five more times to make it 11-0. Tampa Bay’s winning streak is its longest since the team won eight straight in August last year. Morton (6-0) limited the Twins to two hits before Luis Arraez doubled

Neither Osaka nor Halep managed to put on the sort of solid performance seen from Serena Williams — barely bothered during a 6-3, 6-2 victory over qualifier Kurumi Nara — or top-seeded man Novak Djokovic, also a straight-set winners. Azarenka sought to control points with deep, attacking strokes and by going after Osaka’s backhand side. “I played very smart. I really played the right spots,” Azarenka said. “I was doing everything that I was sup-

posed to do. And, especially, moving well and pushing her back.” Azarenka knows a thing or two about how to perform on the sport’s biggest stages: She won two titles at the Australian Open, reached two finals at the U.S. Open and was a semifinalist at both Wimbledon and, back in 2013, the French Open. She is currently ranked 43rd, though, on account of missing time over the past few seasons while pregnant and then dealing with a custody issue involving her son.

Brandon Lowe had three RBIs, Ji-Man Choi hit a two-run homer and Christian Arroyo, Willy Adames, Travis d’Arnaud and Avisail Garcia also drove in runs for the Rays.

Bruins look to top line By STEPHEN WHYNO AP Hockey Writer

ST. LOUIS — Bruce Cassidy figures sometime before the puck drops for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, the Boston Bruins’ first line will get together. Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak will talk about what hasn’t gone right so far in the series against the St. Louis Blues and what they need to do better. Maybe assistant Jay Pandolfo will show them some video clips for good measure. “They’re students of the game where they see an opening,” Cassidy said Thursday. “Listen, we’re in the finals. These are good players they’re playing against every night, so they’ve got to find that little edge and I suspect they’ll work hard to do that in Game 3.” One of Boston’s biggest strength through the first three rounds of the playoffs has been virtually nonexistent so far against St. Louis. Marchand, Bergeron and Pastrnak have zero evenstrength points against the defensively sound Blues and will look to break out on the road in Game 3 on Saturday to try to put the Bruins up again in the bestof-seven series. “We need to capitalize,” Bergeron said in Boston. “For us, it’s about being better. We’ve dealt with this this whole playoffs against different lines. It’s no different. We know how we can play.” How they can play is pretty darn dominant. They were responsible for 23 of the Bruins’ 32 goals going into the final and exploited matchups against offensive trios similar to the Blues’ top line. That success hasn’t materialized — yet — against

the Blues, who have tried to get the shutdown defense pairing of Jay Bouwmeester and Colton Parayko against Marchand, Bergeron and Pastrnak as much as possible. In the first home Cup Final game in St. Louis since 1970, nothing can be said to be certain except a jacked-up atmosphere Bouwmeester and Parayko sticking to that line like glue. Cassidy gave St. Louis credit for defending well while also predicting his top line won’t be held off the scoresheet 5-on-5 forever. “Usually if they check well, get pucks back, they’ll get some odd-man rushes against offensive lines,” Cassidy said. “If they support the puck close together, they’ll get their chances. If they’re able to separate down low against those man-to-man type of defenders, they’ll get some chances. They got a few. They haven’t finished yet. I wouldn’t say that that line has been dormant by any means.” This is dormant by their standards. Perhaps that’s why Pastrak’s answer to what he and his linemates could do better was, “Obviously, maybe produce more?” That actually starts in the defensive end with getting the puck back and going on the offensive. “I think executing a little better in our zone — I think it starts there,” Bergeron said. “We have to play a little bit more our way, our style.” That style won’t be easy to get do because the Blues get the last line change at home and can dictate the matchups. Coach Craig Berube likes going power on power and leaning on Bouwmeester and Parayko to fill the role they have all playoffs.

Today in History Today is Friday, May 31, the 151st day of 2019. There are 214 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 31, 1962, former Nazi official Adolf Eichmann was hanged in Israel a few minutes before midnight for his role in the Holocaust. On this date: In 1669, English diarist Samuel Pepys (peeps) wrote the final entry of his journal, blaming his failing eyesight for his inability to continue. In 1859, the Big Ben clock tower in London went into operation, chiming for the first time. In 1889, some 2,200 people in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, perished when the South Fork Dam collapsed, sending 20 million tons of water rushing through the town. In 1916, during World War I, British and German fleets fought the naval Battle of Jutland off Denmark; there was no clear-cut victor, although the British suffered heavier losses. In 1921, a race riot erupted in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as white mobs began looting and leveling the affluent black district of Greenwood over reports a black man had assaulted a white woman in an elevator; hundreds are believed to have died. In 1949, former State Department official and accused spy Alger Hiss went on trial in New York, charged with perjury (the jury deadlocked, but Hiss was convicted in a second trial). In 1970, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake in Peru claimed an estimated 67,000 lives. In 1977, the Trans-Alaska oil pipeline, three years in the making despite objections from environmentalists and Alaska Natives, was completed. (The first oil began flowing through the pipeline 20 days later.) In 1985, 88 people were killed, more than 1,000 injured, when 41 tornadoes swept through parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and Ontario, Canada, during an 8-hour period. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush welcomed Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev to Washington for a summit meeting. The situation comedy “Seinfeld” began airing as a regular series on NBC. In 1994, the United States announced it was no longer aiming long-range nuclear missiles at targets in the former Soviet Union. In 2005, breaking a silence of 30 years, former FBI official W. Mark Felt stepped forward as “Deep Throat,” the secret Washington Post source during the Watergate scandal. Ten years ago: Dr. George Tiller, a rare provider of late-term abortions, was shot and killed in a Wichita, Kansas, church. (Gunman Scott Roeder was later convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 50 years.) Millvina Dean, the last survivor of the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic, died in Southampton, England at 97. Five years ago: Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan, was freed by the Taliban in exchange for five Afghan detainees from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. (Bergdahl, who’d gone missing in June 2009, later pleaded guilty to endangering his comrades by walking away from his post in Afghanistan; his sentence included a dishonorable discharge, a reduction in rank and a fine, but no prison time.) A private Gulfstream IV jet went off a runway and crashed while trying to take off from Hanscom Field in Bedford, Massachusetts, killing Philadelphia Inquirer co-owner Lewis Katz and six other people. One year ago: The Trump administration imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum from Europe, Mexico and Canada in a move that drew immediate vows of retaliation. Western Europe got its first populist government as Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the right-wing League formed a governing coalition. Comedian Samantha Bee apologized to Ivanka Trump and to her viewers for using an expletive to describe the president’s daughter on Bee’s TBS show “Full Frontal.” President Donald Trump pardoned conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza, who had pleaded guilty to campaign finance fraud; Trump said D’Souza had been “treated very unfairly by our government.” The Golden State Warriors won Game 1 of the NBA finals over the Cleveland Cavaliers in overtime; Cleveland’s J.R. Smith inexplicably failed to take a go-ahead shot after a missed free-throw as time ran out in regulation. Today’s Birthdays: Actor-director Clint Eastwood is 89. Singer Peter Yarrow is 81. Humanitarian Terry Waite is 80. Singer-musician Augie Meyers is 79. Actress Sharon Gless is 76. Football Hall of Famer Joe Namath is 76. Broadcast journalist/commentator Bernard Goldberg is 74.

Thought for Today: “They that approve a private opinion, call it opinion; but they that dislike it, heresy; and yet heresy signifies no more than private opinion.” — Thomas Hobbes, English political philosopher (15881679).

scored. Godfrey attributed the offensive explosion it to a patient plate approach. “We were waiting on it really nicely,” Godfrey said. “Just waiting for the pitch to come to us.” The sophomore slugger added that even in a pressure-packed environment that the state tournament brings, the Mariners were determined to stay relaxed and play with a fun attitude. “When the momentum’s with us and we’re just playing for fun, it’s easier to hit the ball,” she said. Homer knocked out 22 base hits to Hutchison’s one. Four Mariners batters had three-hit days, including Annalynn Brown (3 for 3), Brianna Hetrick (3 for 4), Kaitlyn Johnson (3 for 3) and Zoe Adkins (3 for 4). All that hitting was

backed up by stellar pitching by Adkins and Brown, as the two combined to toss a one-hitter over the three frames. Adkins gave up a run and issued five walks with three strikeouts, and Brown pitched a scoreless inning with one strikeout. Bell said he put Brown in the game to ensure a mercy ruling after a mistake on offense kept the score at 10 after two innings. Homer loaded the bases in the first inning before recording an out, and Johnson capitalized with a two-run single. Adkins added a run on a force-out and Chapman scored two more on a grounder to second that the Hutchison infielder bobbled for an error. In the top of the second, Owen looped a single into left field to score two runs for an 8-0 game, and Godfrey later made her first impact on the game with a two-run double on a line drive to center field.

Hutchison scored its lone run of the game in the bottom of the second on an RBI ground-out by the pitcher, Reighley Dean, making for a 15-1 game. In the top of the third, Homer added further damage with a two-run single by Godfrey, an RBI single by pinch-hitter Dellah Harris and a two-run double by Owen. Bell said he hopes to see the big win translate to further success as every game counts from here on out. “I think the mind-set is that nothing is lost,” he said. “We’ve learned a little about what we need to do to prepare ourselves better. We learned a little about what Ketchikan has, I assumed they were the toughest team in our (tournament).” Bell said that in the game with Ketchikan, the devil was in the details. “It was a number of little errors, dropped balls and miscues that we shouldn’t

have had,” Bell said. Hetrick hit 3 for 4 with two runs, while Johnson and Anderson both hit 2 for 4, with Anderson blasting a home run for three RBIs. Brown went all six innings pitching for Homer, giving up 10 earned runs on 11 hits and five walks, with three strikeouts to go with it. The Kings led 6-1 before Hetrick and Johnson got on with singles, and Anderson drove them home with a homer to slash the Ketchikan lead to 6-4. In the top of the fourth, Hetrick tied it at 6 apiece with a double to right field, then Johnson put Homer ahead 7-6 with an RBI single. However, a leadoff single by Kiara Hodges in the bottom of the fourth turned into a run on a double by Jhaelah Schultz that tied the game. The go-ahead run came in on a passed ball by Brown, then Shaelyn Mendoza pushed the lead to 10-7 on a two-run single.

birds, and the comeback story of the emperor goose in Alaska through collaborative management efforts. And you cannot go wrong with a little hands-on technology. The kids learned about interactive GPS, even while learning to appreciate a good old-fashioned compass. They navigated their way to a reported “possibly illegal bear bait station,” and then on to a “smoke report” where they discussed campfire safety. A new activity this year was an introduction to the innovative use of drones in wildlife management and conservation. They learned how biologists use drones to monitor nesting bird colonies such as the Aleutian tern colony on Headquarters

Lake. While the kids did not fly the drones themselves, as it would involve several licenses, certifications and training classes, they learned about and could appreciate the application this cool tool offers. As always, archery was a big hit. This year kids got to take aim at the invasive zombie and learn about some of the invasive species here on the Kenai Peninsula such as pike, elodea and a more recently discovered threat, earthworm. All of these nonnative species cause or have the potential to cause environmental or economic harm. During the boating safety activity, the “ice bucket” challenge tested their mental and physical mettle. Their daunting goal was to pick up as many coins as they could in a bucket of ice water and then quickly don a life jacket to demonstrate the crippling

A few years back, we deputized the kids as junior game wardens for a day. They then walked through mini real-life scenarios in which we paired up a small group of kids with a game warden so they could learn what it is like to make contact with a member of the public. It gave the kids a feel for some of our everyday experiences with visitors to public lands. I have enjoyed the outreach opportunity that putting together the Game Warden Camps has given

me, and the enthusiasm the next generation carries. Tons of cool stuff, most of it hands on, and lots of fun mixed in even as our kids start down the path of becoming thoughtful stewards of their natural resources. Our partners for this awesome event included Friends of the Kenai Refuge, Alaska Department of Fish & Game, Alaska State Parks, Alaska Wildlife Troopers and the National Park Service. See you out there!

Mom fears teenage son is headed for heartbreak but it didn’t accomplish anything. I told him I want to meet her, and they agreed. I’m nervous because I know I need to refrain from telling her how I really feel. Any suggestions? -- PROTECTIVE MOM DEAR MOM: Not Abigail Van Buren all romances are guaranteed to last, as most adults find out after they enter the dating scene. At 19 -- learning disabilities or not -your son is considered to be an adult. Part of becoming one is experiencing life with all of its joys and disappointments. You cannot protect your son from sadness or predict how his relationships will turn out. Let him know that you are supportive of him always. Then, when you meet this woman, be warm and befriend her. Get to know her so you can communicate with her without her becoming defensive. You will gain nothing by seeming hostile. DEAR ABBY: About 12 years ago, I found out my dad isn’t really my father. It didn’t

A new travel plan Dear Heloise: Travel is something I’ve always loved, especially to foreign places, but I used to go with my husband. We’re no longer together, yet I still want to travel. But to be honest, I’m scared to TRAVEL ALONE. None of my friends will go with me to other countries because they’re married or their careers don’t allow for too much time off. -- Gigi K., Mapleton, Utah Gigi, you can go with a group, and any travel agent can help you plan your excursion. If you decide to go by yourself, you might find you enjoy traveling on your own, or you might meet people who enjoy traveling as much as you do. -- Heloise SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795001 San Antonio, TX 78279-5001 Fax: 1-210-HELOISE Email: Heloise(at) HOULD YOU RINSE? Dear Heloise: My dentist is adamant about NO rinsing after brushing. If the toothpaste has fluoride, he claims that rinsing will wash it away. -- Charlie S., Chambersburg, Pa. Charlie, this is a matter for debate. Some dentists feel that rinsing out after brushing washes away the fluoride. Yet other people say that swallowing toothpaste upsets their stomach, or that rinsing cleans out bacteria and food particles that were just brushed out from their teeth. Both sides present valid arguments. -- Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, May 31, 2019: This year, you evolve to a new level of understanding in various situations and with different people. Your listening skills soar and draw a positive response in conversations. If you’re single, others are drawn to you like bears are to honey. Enjoy the choices. If you’re attached, the two of you benefit from quite a lot of downtime together. Schedule more getaways together. TAURUS reads you cold. 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 could be shocked by the cost of an item or of proceeding financially the way you have been. Remain mellow and easygoing even if facing a shakeup on the homefront. You could be too tired to get upset or charged up over a situation. Tonight: Out on the town. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH You beam ear to ear and feel as if you could take on the world. Your more realistic vision might tell you that a little moderation in your objectives is possible. Return calls. A request might be forthcoming. Tonight: Out on the town with friends. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH You could be on top of your game. Schedule meetings for now, when you enjoy yourself more and are more effective. Keep conversations as light as possible. You could find a problem mounting despite your efforts to contain it. Tonight: All smiles. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Stay on top of your game and do not push so hard to achieve certain results. You will find that if you lie back, your efforts pay off tomorrow. Emphasize a long-term goal. You might be tired of waiting to realize it. Tonight: Where the crowds are. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Someone you care about puts you on a pedestal. You might like the attention, but recognize your limits. Do honor a restriction, whether self-imposed or coming from elsewhere. You will relax and flow far more. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Look to the possibilities and to breaking a pattern. The way you create

change how I felt about him, and I wasn’t interested in meeting my biological father. Dad died a couple of weeks ago. During the memorial service, I ended my emotional tribute to him by saying that even though he wasn’t my bio father, he was still my “Dad,” and the love and memories I have of him mean more than any blood ties to my bio father. My brother and one of my sisters had no problem with me saying this. My other sister, however, was very upset with me. She said letting church members know he wasn’t my bio father was disrespectful. She was the only one who criticized me. Was I disrespectful, and was my sister correct in chastising me? -- LOVED MY DAD DEAR LOVED: The eulogy you gave for your dad was beautiful, and it came from the heart. It was in no way disrespectful and you did nothing wrong. Your sister should not have criticized you the way she did, but when there is a death in the family, emotions sometimes run high. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

DEAR ABBY: I am very close to my 19-year-old son. He is kind, sweet and bighearted. He has learning disabilities and the maturity level of probably a 15- or 16-yearold. Naturally, I am protective of him. He had one girlfriend during his senior year, and when they broke up after four months, he was beyond devastated. Since then he constantly talks about how lonely he is and his desire to be in a relationship. About a week ago, he told me he likes a woman from his work. They went out on a couple of dates and, come to find out, she’s 33 and has three kids (9, 7 and 8 months old). He told me she asked him if he wanted to be in a serious relationship or just be friends with benefits. He told her he wanted something serious, and I guess she agreed. Abby, this woman is taking advantage of my son! What would a woman that age want with a kid? This is a complicated nightmare, and I do not want my son involved with her. I’m convinced she’s using him, and once she is over it, she will break his heart. It took him a long time to get over his high school sweetheart, and I was seriously worried about his mental well-being. Is there anything I can do to stop this train wreck? I have talked to him about my concerns,
