In the news Suspect in theft of village safe arrested in Bethel BETHEL — A man suspected of stealing a safe from a city building in the Southwest village of Napakiak has been arrested. Alaska State Troopers say 52-year-old Alfred Evan was arrested Wednesday in Bethel while at the courthouse on another matter. Troopers on Nov. 12 were notified that someone had stolen the safe in Napakiak, a village of 360 about 15 miles southwest of Bethel. Investigators determined that the suspect used a crowbar to break into the city building. The bolted-down safe and other items were taken. Investigators identified Evan as the burglary suspect through DNA evidence and video evidence. A judge issued an arrest warrant. Evan is charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief. Online court documents do not list his attorney.

Driver dies in crash of fuel tanker on Dalton Highway ANCHORAGE — The driver of a fuel tanker died in a crash on the Dalton Highway. Alaska State Troopers say 60-year-old Richard Flansberg of Delta Junction was killed Monday afternoon at Mile 36. A passenger, 60-yearold Larry Bloodworth of Anchorage, was transported by Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. to an Alyeska medical facility at Pump Station 6. Flansberg had not used a seat belt. Troopers say speed and road conditions may have contributed to the crash. The crash punctured the front tank of the tanker. An estimated 2,000 gallons of heating fuel spilled. — Associated Press

Thunderstorms spark 5 fires

District, educators to talk contract next week

By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Suppression efforts continue on a large wildfire near Tustumena Lake that started Wednesday night as a result of thunderstorms and lightning strikes across the Kenai Peninsula. A helicopter pilot discovered the fire at 6 p.m. Wednesday night while en route to check on a lightning strike in the area. As of midnight Wednesday, the Tustumena Lake Fire had reached 121 acres in size and a crew of 15 was working to prevent the flames from spreading by mopping up hot spots and digging fire lines where needed. According to the latest update on, the suppression teams included The Division of Forestry’s Pioneer Peak Interagency Hotshot Crew and the Yukon Type 2 Initial Attack Crew, which are based in Palmer and Soldotna, respectively.

Weeks after voting to strike, school district employee associations and the district will meeting again for negotiations Tuesday. Negotiations will begin at 10 a.m., and the location is unknown at this time. After contract negotiations with the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District hit a standstill, peninsula educators and staff voted to strike May 22, with more than 75% of certified staff voting “yes” on a walkout. For over a year, contract negotiations between the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District and the Kenai Peninsula Education Association and Kenai Peninsula Educational Support Association have snagged on the rising cost of health care. A previous agreement effective through June 2018 remains in use for employees without contracts.

19th annual Air Fair to take flight By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

The skies of the Kenai Peninsula will be busier than usual this weekend. The 19th annual Kenai Peninsula Air Fair and Fun Flight takes place on Saturday, with two separate events being held at the Soldotna and Kenai airports. Mary Bondurant, Kenai Airport Manager, has been involved with the Air Fair since its inception. “It started out as a bunch of pilots in the civil air patrol getting together to dust the wings off their

planes,” Bondurant said. “Now it’s an all-day event open to the public. It’s great to see how much it’s grown over the years.” The fair will start at 8 a.m. in Soldotna at the MARC hangar with a fundraising breakfast and static displays from the Experimental Aircraft Association. During the breakfast, pilots will be able to register for the Air Fair’s main event: the Poker Run. Pilots who participate in the Poker Run will have to fly to at least five of the eight airports on See AIR, page A14

Republican senator tries to kick-start motion on budget By Alex McCarthy Juneau Empire

Sen. John Coghill was getting impatient. The North Pole Republican stood on the Senate floor Thursday morning and said he wanted

the Senate to take another vote on a bill that would give Alaskans a $3,000 Alaska Permanent Fund dividend. If that vote failed, according to the Alaska Legislature’s rules, the bill would be permanently shelved.

With just 15 senators in attendance, there wouldn’t be enough votes in favor of the bill (Senate Bill 1002), and Coghill said in an interview Thursday that he didn’t think there would even be enough votes to agree to re-vote

Community seeks funds to move homes away from river AKIAK (AP) — An Alaska community with a rapidly eroding riverbank is seeking funding to relocate homes, officials said. Money is available, but Akiak officials will have to go through a complicated bureau-

cratic process to obtain funding to save buildings in danger of falling into the Kuskokwim River, KYUK-AM reported Monday. Akiak, a community of about 350 people on the river’s west bank northeast of Bethel, lost

a one-mile stretch of riverbank to erosion in May, with parts of the river moving 75 feet closer to the community and putting one house within 15 feet of the river. Moving houses and connecting them to serSee MOVE, page A14

ninth time, and remembers a time when the thought of using the park as an event venue was crazy talk. The area was formerly listed as a DOT contaminated site, a far cry from the present scene of children laughing, dogs playing and music ringing through the park. “It’s kind of unbelievable, honestly,” Bornemann said. “When I started (helping to organize) the festival, we were backing trucks up to make the stage, and now we have a stage capable of holding musicians and music.” After bouncing between Kenai and Soldotna in its early years, the festival eventually found a permanent residence in Soldotna sometime in the mid-2000s, Bornemann said.

trees and fresh grass. Alexandrou said that these areas make for flashier fires that ignite quickly, but they tend not to spread as easily as crown fires — blazes that reach the tops of standing trees and get carried by the wind. The Tustumena Lake Fire was one of eight wildfires started by lightning on Wednesday, according to the Alaska Interagency Coordination Center, with five occurring on the Kenai Peninsula and three in Southwest Alaska. Alexandrou said that Wednesday’s fires are the first instances this year of lightning-caused fires on the peninsula. The other 19 recorded have been caused by human activity. Almost 4,200 lightning strikes occurred across the state on Wednesday, with 128 occurring on the Kenai Peninsula. The Tustumena Lake Fire is located in the Cari-

Bornemann estimates that 8,000 to 10,000 people came through last year, and credited the city of Soldotna and Sen. Peter Micciche for helping bring about the turnaround of the park, cleaning it up and constructing the space that locals now enjoy. “They had the vision to see the site, right on the Kenai river, this gem of the city, and thought, ‘Let’s make the investment’,” Bornemann said. “I think they’re seeing the fruits of their labor.” In talking with former organizers and volunteers from the earliest days of the festival, Bornemann said it is clear that what has kept the event in the eye of the central peninsula for 29 years is the mix of fun and education. Music, food and beer are the main draws — with education and the fishing industry on the Kenai River taking center stage. “Our mission is to cel-

ebrate the Kenai River and what it gives our community,” he said. “That has stayed through since its origins to this point.” Between fish-painting, salmon dissections and more than 40 artisan vendor booths that feature artwork celebrating the river, there is no shortage of creativity and spectacle. Everything from ceramics, photography, clothing and homemade products will be on display. There will also be at least 12 food vendors throughout the grounds, all of which Bornemann said operate from within Alaska. “It’s all Alaska,” he said. “We’re pretty committed to that. The “Alaska Made” symbol is certified through the state, and we’ve made sure they’re local, regional or statewide vendors. We’re very proud of that fact.” The festival music menu includes 12 bands that will

play throughout the weekend. Music starts Friday at 5 p.m. with Chris Towne and wraps up Sunday at 3 p.m. with Shamwari Marimba. Other groups include popular Seward ensemble Blackwater Railroad on Friday, Hot Mess on Saturday afternoon and Up A Mountain on Saturday night. The traditional Run for the River 10-mile and 5-kilometer races will return Saturday morning, with the 10-mile race taking off at 8:30 a.m. and the 5K shortly behind at 9 a.m. The popular eagle release also returns for another year on Saturday at 1 p.m. With an entire generation of peninsula families passing through the festival over the previous 28 years, Bornemann touted the event as a can’t-miss bucket-list item. “It’s a heartwarming feeling that people make this their priority that second week of June,” he said.

bou Hills approximately 30 miles south of Soldotna. Alexandrou said that the fire is at least 10 miles from the nearest structure and no evacuations were ordered. According to Akfireinfo. com, the other four fires on the peninsula are burning in

the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. Fire managers are currently assessing what actions to take, if any. These fires are no more than an acre in diameter each and are in remote areas. Fire managers conducted detection flights

on the peninsula and in Southwest Alaska on Thursday to identify any additional fires started by Wednesday’s lightning. Visit for the latest information on wildfire activity in Alaska.

Lawrence Francis Lathrop Born Oakdale, CA, April 13, 1946 Died Soldotna, AK on June 4, 2019

Larry was a beloved science teacher and coach. Always on an adventure, Larry lived with a “nothing in moderation” philosophy. Everyone he knew remembers his larger than life stories, generous heart, immense strength, and gregarious nature. His decision to become a teacher was a natural choice as he educated all those he encountered. He was often approached by former students or athletes who would relate stories about how he had influenced their lives. A varsity letterman in football, wrestling and track in high school, he continued his athletic career on a scholarship to UC Berkeley. After competing in the 1972 Olympic Trials in wrestling, he returned to his alma mater to teach and coach.

. . . Sen Continued from page A1

Both the Senate Majority and Senate Minority met following the floor session, and Coghill said he felt that people are more on board with pursuing a budget first before figuring out the dividend. “At least now, it looks like we have some agreement to move forward and get an operating budget so that it can actually be negotiated with the House, printed, put on the table and moved up to the governor before early next week,” Coghill said. Senators even entertained the thought of having a “call” of the Senate where law enforcement would have to track down absent senators and bring them to the floor. They ultimately voted against doing that. Sens. Tom Begich and Mike Shower were excused for Thursday’s floor session. Sens. Elvi Gray-Jackson, Natasha von Imhof and Bill Wielechowski were also absent. Gray-Jackson and Wielechowski voted earlier this week for a $3,000 PFD, and Shower is also in favor of a full dividend. Some senators were unhappy with the way Coghill introduced his motion, with five of the 20 senators not on the floor. Sen. Lora Reinbold, R-Eagle River, was particularly agitated as she spoke on the floor. “We’re basically disenfranchising voters, because thousands and thousands and thousands of Alaskans are not represented here today,” Reinbold said. The Senate has been gridlocked on the issue of the PFD, but most other topics have been agreed upon in special session. The Legislature passed House Bill 49, which repeals most of the criminal justice reform legislation SB 91. The conference committee (a group of legislators from the House and Senate) has all but fin-

ished an operating budget as well. Sen. Jesse Kiehl, DJuneau, said the Senate has been trying to fit the PFD in the budget, but it might be time to pass the budget and deal with the PFD later. “The operating budget is otherwise ready to go,” Kiehl said in an interview. “For three weeks, nobody’s gotten anywhere keeping them tied together. I think it’s time to split them.” If the Legislature can’t pass a budget by the end of the state’s fiscal year (June 30), the government will shut down the following day. Gov. Mike Dunleavy has pledged to veto a bill that does not guarantee a full $3,000 PFD. Pursuing the budget before the PFD would put the Senate on the same page as the House. Speaker of the House Bryce Edgmon said this week that members of the House Majority want to pass a budget before dealing with the PFD. Speaking to reporters after Thursday’s floor session, Senate President Cathy Giessel said many in the Senate are beginning to feel that same way as the clock continues to tick. “We need to get the operating budget moving,” Giessel said. “Right now we have an issue that is standing in the way of that.” The Senate will hold another floor session at 11 a.m. Friday, where the senators might again attempt to vote on the PFD amount. Reinbold said on the floor that she expects all 20 senators to be in attendance next Tuesday. The special session ends June 14 (next Friday), so tabling the PFD for now could lead to another special session, Kiehl said. Lawmakers want to make sure they get it right, he said. “There is not one single vote in the Senate for a zero PFD,” Kiehl said. “Everybody wants to pay a PFD. We’re arguing about how much and how. If it takes another special (session) to do it, we’ll have to do it.”

What others say

Celebrating, honoring lives lost too soon Keith Cox served the residents

of Virginia Beach in the public utilities department for 12 years. Well-liked by co-workers, he spent his final moments on Friday working to protect them from a gunman in the municipal center — sacrificing his life in the process. The remembrance of Cox, published in The Pilot on Monday, is one of many heartbreaking stories to emerge from the darkness that still hangs over this community, four days after the worst mass shooting in the city’s history. Attention should be paid to the criminal investigation being conducted by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. They are diving into the details of the shooter’s life, his movements prior to the attack and the possible motivation for this horrific act in the hope of gaining some insight into why and how this happened. But for now, our focus should be on those precious lives cut short on Friday, celebrating their memory and paying tribute to their selflessness. They deserve no less from the community they served. So let us remember Cox, the public utilities account clerk who was described as a jovial, caring co-worker and a talented singer in the choir at New Hope Baptist Church, where his father serves as pastor. As the shooter roamed the building, Cox ushered several employees into an office, telling them to lock the door while he looked for others to help. Rich Nettleton spent 28 years working for the city as a utilities engineer. A Norfolk resident and Old Dominion University graduate, he was a lieutenant for the Army’s 130th Engineer Brigade in Germany, where he served with Beach City Manager Dave Hansen. Joshua Hardy spent more than four years as an engineering technician, but loved ones remembered him as a devout Christian whose love for children led him to author “The ABC Book on Protecting Yourself from Strangers,” a book he self-published in 2011. Missy Langer worked as an administrative assistant in the public utilities department for 12 years. Neighbors recalled her as a passionate Pittsburgh Steelers fan. She had a tough few years, long both her parents in the last five years, but was proud of the life she built in Virginia Beach. Kate Nixon was an engineer with a decade of experience working for the city, whose love of her husband and three children was plainly evident to all who knew her. Alex Gusev came to this country from Belarus in 2003 and was recalled by a colleague as “a model professional” who handled right-of-way issues for Virginia Beach. He was also a graduate of ODU who was quick to help friends and loved ones in need. For most of her 24 years in Virginia Beach government, Mary Lou Gayle worked as a right-of-way agent who was recalled by neighbors for the upkeep and improvements made to her home, which was described as “gorgeous.” A parishioner at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church, Gayle was well thought of by all those in her orbit. Tara Gallagher, a graduate of Portsmouth’s Woodrow Wilson High School, earned two engineering degrees from ODU before joining the city six years ago. LaQuita Brown, a Chesapeake resident, was a right-of-way agent for more than four years. Bert Snelling was a contractor visiting Building 2 for a permit when the shooting began. Another ODU graduate, Chris Rapp, joined the city 11 months ago after serving as Stafford County’s public works director for two years. He was recalled for his love of bagpipes, which he played with Tidewater Pipes & Drums, and his devotion to family and friends. And Bobby Williams, who joined the city in 1981, was repeatedly honored for his lengthy public service throughout his career. He was the type of employee who provides invaluable continuity and institutional memory to municipal government. Stories about each of the victims are available to read. They have been told with respect, grace and sensitivity, honoring the memory of each life lost and the emotional toll on those left behind. Hold them all in your hearts. — The Virginian-Pilot, June 4

Alaska is ignoring PFAS health risks A laska V oices K elly M c L aughlin I live in the Gustavus PFAS plume. Per/polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a toxic family of chemicals that were introduced into Gustavus’ drinking water via firefighting foam, known as Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF), that Alaska’s Department of Transportation (ADOT) chose to use, uncontained, for testing and training at our airport. Gustavus Airport was identified as contaminated in July 2018. My home drinking water well near the airport was tested in September 2018. The results were 133 parts per trillion of PFAS. I subsequently became a voracious late night reader of scientific studies concerning PFAS. Anything measured in parts per trillion (ppt) seems pretty insignificant, but I quickly found that is not the case with these chemicals. Like lead, there is growing evidence that no amount of PFAS is safe. Its man-made bond is indestructible. It moves far and wide, wherever water goes, and the carbon/ fluorine bonds hold. Forever. Alaska’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) was in the process of adopting new regulations at the time my well was tested. Because of the extremely toxic nature of these PFAS chemicals, the ADEC was in the process of developing, and

was already using, a more stringent set of regulations, so my well was tested for five different PFAS commonly associated with AFFF. Water that tested above 65 ppt for the sum of these five PFAS was considered a health hazard. The regulation packet that initiated this approach was up for public comment shortly after my results came in. I was impressed by the attention to scientific literature and the overall concern by the state government and advocacy groups. I was proud that my state was attempting to lead the nation in health-protective regulations regarding PFAS. However, based on the literature I was reading, even 65 ppt of five PFAS was not conservative enough and my public comment reflected that. Many studies suggest that there is no safe level of exposure due to the propensity of PFAS to bioaccumulate and biomagnify. The public comment period ended, a new Alaska governor took office, and we waited to hear what our feedback had accomplished. And we waited. We heard Gov. Mike Dunleavy had put the new regulatory package on hold, then we started to hear that the carefully researched and drafted regulations had been dismissed entirely. We were going to go backwards, adopting an outdated standard; instead of counting the sum of five PFAS, Alaska would count only two. Dunleavy and DEC Commissioner Jason Brune were giving the top-down order to ignore three of the most commonly detected PFAS compounds in Alaska: PFNA, PFHxS and PF. The scientific literature

that prompted 2018’s DEC staff to act quickly to implement more protective standards was being blatantly disregarded by the new administration. Recently, ADEC scientists’ protests to this non-scientific, outdated approach are being disregarded as “opinion” despite the existence of dozens of peer-reviewed scientific papers that back them up. Scientists and state workers with 30 years of experience protecting Alaskans at DEC are afraid that speaking against this administration’s decision could cost them their jobs. This rollback in regulations by our state government is not only negligent, it is an unconscionable attack on public health and safety. Health risks from PFAS include (from Alaska’s Department and Social Services web page): ulcerative colitis, liver damage, abnormal fat metabolism, high cholesterol, kidney cancer and chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure in pregnant women, decreased response to vaccines, testicular cancer and decreased fertility, thyroid disease, and reduced birth weight. Knowing there is such a toxic contaminant in our drinking water and choosing to ignore the vast body of recent science on PFAS goes directly against DEC’s mission of “Conserving, improving, and protecting Alaska’s natural resources and environment to enhance the health, safety, economic, and social well-being of Alaskans.” Kelly McLaughlin is the Gustavus PFAS Action Coalition (GPAC) Chair.

Bloomberg to plunge $500M into clean energy effort By JULIE PACE AP Washington Bureau Chief

WASHINGTON — Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is plunging $500 million into an effort to close all of the nation's remaining coal plants by 2030 and put the United States on track toward a 100% clean energy economy. The billionaire Bloomberg's investment in the Beyond Carbon initiative marks the largest ever philanthropic effort to combat climate change, according to the mayor's foundation. The organization will

bypass the federal government and instead seek to pass climate and clean energy policies, as well as back political candidates, at the state and local level. "We're in a race against time with climate change, and yet there is virtually no hope of bold federal action on this issue for at least another two years. Mother Nature is not waiting on our political calendar, and neither can we," Bloomberg said. Bloomberg considered but ultimately passed on seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Instead, he vowed to point his vast

wealth and political connections toward fighting climate change and defeating President Donald Trump. Bloomberg will formally unveil the Beyond Carbon effort Friday during a commencement address at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The initiative mirrors Bloomberg's work on gun control, which has focused on bolstering state and local efforts. The former mayor's financial contributions to Democratic candidates who backed stricter gun laws was also considered integral to the party's ability to retake the House in 2018.

Democrats unveil new strategy in subpoena battles with Trump By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON — House Democrats are poised to make it easier for their committee chairmen to take President Donald Trump’s administration to court, escalating their legal efforts against a president who has vowed to fight “all of the subpoenas.” A resolution unveiled Thursday would authorize contempt cases against Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Donald McGahn for failing to comply with subpoenas. It would also empower committee chairmen to take legal action to enforce subpoenas in the future without a vote of the full House, so long as they have approval from a bipartisan group of House leaders. Democrats have the majority on the five-person group.

Trump’s vow to stonewall House Democrats has left them with few good options outside the courtroom to pursue investigations of the president. Barr defied a subpoena to provide an unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia report, along with underlying evidence from the report. McGahn, who is frequently referenced in the report, has defied subpoenas to provide documents and testify before the Judiciary Committee. The White House directed McGahn not to comply with requests for documents during his tenure there, and has also directed other witnesses not to comply. Former communications director Hope Hicks and a former aide to McGahn, Annie Donaldson, also defied subpoenas this week at the request of the White House. The administration said they don’t have the legal right to turn

over documents from their time working for Trump. The House is scheduled to vote on the resolution Tuesday. By allowing committee chairs to act without a House vote in the future, leaders can avoid tying up precious floor time — and also prevent Democrats from more conservative districts from taking multiple votes on contempt resolutions. Many of those members have said they would prefer to be working on policy instead of investigations of the president. At the opposite end of the Democratic caucus, several of the most liberal members are pressuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to open impeachment proceedings against Trump. But Pelosi has so far rejected that option, preferring a slower, more methodical approach to investigating the president — including the court fights.

Nation/World Putin says Russia didn’t meddle in US vote By GARY PRUITT Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday reaffirmed his staunch denial that his government meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election despite the extensive evidence to the contrary, and insisted Moscow has no intention of interfering in any future votes, either. Speaking in response to a question from The Associated Press during a meeting with chief executives of international news agencies in St. Petersburg, the Russian leader said that “we didn’t meddle, we aren’t meddling and we will not meddle in any elections.” Putin and other Russian officials have hotly denied any interference with the U.S. vote to help Donald Trump win the presidency, even though U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller has uncovered evidence of a Kremlin operation to interfere with the 2016 vote. He charged 12 Russian military intelligence officers with breaking into Democratic Party emails, and also indict-

ed other Russians who used phony social media accounts to spread divisive rhetoric and to undermine the U.S. political system. Putin insisted that “we don’t have and never had any plans to interfere in U.S. domestic politics,” but added that the Russian government can’t stop private citizens from expressing their views about developments in the U.S. online. “How can we ban them from doing that?” he said. “Do you have such a ban with regard to Russia?” The president added that Russia had offered to agree on a set of rules regarding modern communications to President Barack Obama’s administration and then Trump’s White House, but neither was ready to make the deal. During his meeting, Putin also warned that the U.S. reluctance to start talks on extending a key arms control pact raises the threat of an uncontrollable arms race, and said that Moscow has no plans to send troops to shore up Venezuela’s embattled leader. Asked about Trump’s

tweet this week that Moscow had informed Washington it had “removed most of their people from Venezuela,” Putin said that Russian experts come and go to service Russian-made weapons bought by Caracas. “We aren’t building any military bases there, we aren’t sending troops there, we have never done that,” Putin said. “But we have fulfilled our contract obligations in the sphere of military-technical cooperation and we will keep doing that.”

The Russian leader said the U.S. sanctions against Venezuela have hurt ordinary people, and warned Washington against using force to oust Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. Russia has staunchly backed Maduro, while the U.S. and several dozen other nations have thrown their support behind opposition leader Juan Guaidó and recognized him as interim president, asserting that Maduro’s re-election last year was illegitimate.

US opens new mass facility in Texas for migrant children By GARANCE BURKE Associated Press

The federal government is opening a new mass facility to hold migrant children in Texas and considering detaining hundreds more youths on three military bases around the country, adding up to 3,000 new beds to the already overtaxed system. The new emergency facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, will hold as many as 1,600 teens in a complex that once housed oil field workers on governmentleased land near the border, said Mark Weber, a spokesman for Office of Refugee Resettlement. The agency is also weighing using Army and Air Force bases in Georgia, Montana and Oklahoma to house an additional 1,400 kids in the coming weeks, amid the influx of children traveling to the U.S. alone. Most of the children crossed the border without their parents, escaping violence and corruption in Central America, and are held in government custody while authorities determine if they can be released to relatives or family friends.

This May 2019 file photo shows some of 1,036 migrants who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas. (U.S. Customs and Border Protection via AP, File)

All the new facilities will be considered temporary emergency shelters, so they won’t be subject to state child welfare licensing requirements, Weber said. In January, the government shut down an unlicensed detention camp in the Texas desert under political pressure, and another unlicensed facility called Homestead remains in operation in the Miami suburbs. “It is our legal requirement to take care of these children so that they are not in Border Patrol facilities,” Weber said. “They will have the services that ORR always provides, which is food, shelter and water.” Under fire for the death

of two children who went through the agency’s network of shelters and facing lawsuits over the treatment of teens in its care, the agency says it must set up new facilities to accommodate new arrivals or risk running out of beds. The announcement of the program’s expansion follows the government’s decision to scale back or cut paying for recreation, English-language courses and legal services for the more than 13,200 migrant toddlers, school-age children and teens in its custody. The Health and Human Services department, which oversees the refugee office, notified shelters around the

country last week that it was not going to reimburse them for teachers’ pay, legal services or recreational equipment, saying budget cuts were needed as record numbers of unaccompanied children arrive at the border, largely from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. In May, border agents apprehended 11,507 children traveling alone. Attorneys said the move violates a legal settlement known as the Flores agreement that requires the government to provide education and recreational activities to migrant children in its care. Last week, attorneys filed a motion claiming that the government also was violating the decades-old settlement by keeping kids at Homestead for months in some cases, instead of releasing them within 20 days. “If they are going to open the program up in these numbers and they can’t even manage the influx facility that they have in a humane way, then compounding that is going to be disastrous,” said Holly Cooper, an attorney at the Immigration Law Clinic at University of California, Davis who represents detained youth.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A former Florida deputy charged with 11 criminal counts after failing to confront the gunman in the Parkland school massacre was released from jail Thursday after a judge reduced his bail and lifted some restrictions. Scot Peterson walked out of the Broward County Jail with his attorneys after Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer set bond at $39,500, down from the initial amount of $102,000. Peterson said nothing before getting into a car that drove him away.

Scherer also eliminated a previous requirement that Peterson wear a GPS monitor. His bond is secured by $330,000 in real estate and he will be allowed to go to his home in North Carolina. “He’s going to be on standard pretrial release,” the judge said. Peterson, 56, is charged with child neglect, culpable negligence and perjury stemming from the February 2018 shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. If convicted, he faces a potential maximum prison sentence of nearly 100 years. While out on bail, Peterson cannot possess a fire-

arm or take any job involving children, Scherer said. Peterson, dressed in beige jail clothes, did not speak during the hearing. His attorney, Joseph DiRuzzo, said Peterson should not face the neglect and negligence charges because he was not legally a caregiver with direct responsibility for the welfare of the students. “They are overreaching. These definitions don’t apply to my client,” DiRuzzo told reporters after the hearing. Assistant State Attorney Tim Donnelly said case law supports the charges. “The definition of caregiver is very broad,” Donnelly said. The charges stem from Peterson’s decision to remain outside a school building — where he was the assigned resource officer — on Valentine’s Day last year when police say defendant Nikolas Cruz, 20, fired 140 rounds from an AR-15 rifle. Cruz faces the death penalty if convicted of the killings. His attorneys have said he would plead guilty in return for a life prison sentence. DiRuzzo said Peterson was abruptly arrested without warning earlier

this week after an internal affairs “name-clearing” hearing at the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Gregory Tony said Peterson was fired after that hearing, even though he had previously announced his retirement.

WEST POINT, N.Y. — A vehicle loaded with West Point cadets on summer training overturned in rough, wooded terrain Thursday, killing one cadet and injuring several others, the U.S. Military Academy said. The tactical vehicle operated by two soldiers overturned around 6:45 a.m. as it was headed to a land navigation site as part of standard summer cadet training, said West Point’s superintendent, Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams. The two soldiers were injured along with 19 cadets in the Class of 2020. Williams said none of the injuries were life-threatening. Injuries included broken arms and facial abrasions, an official with the hospital at West Point said. “It is not common for these vehicles to turn over. It is very rough terrain,” Williams told reporters at a briefing near the accident site Thursday afternoon. “You can see the hills we have here.” Helicopter footage from WNBC showed a truck flipped over in a wooded area. The investigation is continuing, Williams said, and “we don’t know the details of how the accident actually happened.” The “light medium tactical vehicle” that rolled over has a 5-ton payload and an extended bed, according to West Point. That vehicle class has a passenger capacity of 20, not counting those in the cab, according to an Army technical bulletin. It was not clear whether all the cadets were aboard the vehicle, as opposed to nearby, academy spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Ophardt said. Officials were notifying relatives and did not release the identity of the cadet who died. President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon: “So sorry to hear about the terrible accident involving our GREAT West Point Cadets. We mourn the loss of life and pray for the injured. God Bless them ALL!” Classes ended at West Point last month, but the academy runs summer military training exercises for cadets in the heavily wooded hills outside the main gates. The rollover occurred on a fire break road as the vehicle was leaving Camp Natural Bridge, where trainees live during the summer, Ophardt said.

Syria rebels launch attack on government forces in northwest BEIRUT — Syrian insurgents launched an offensive Thursday against government forces in northwestern Syria, armed opposition and a war monitoring group said, part of a see-sawing battle for control of the edge of the rebel-held territory there. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the rebel offensive began Thursday afternoon with a volley of rockets and missiles lobbed at government forces in a handful of villages recently captured from the opposition on the southern edge of the rebel stronghold. The Observatory said the rebels burned tires to obstruct warplanes’ vision. The war monitoring group said rebel fighters advanced in one of the villages — Al-Jebeen — after intense clashes. The government and its ally Russia responded with a wave of airstrikes, including dropping barrel bombs on villages nearby, the Observatory said. A rebel umbrella group, National Front for Liberation, confirmed the offensive, saying it aimed to repel government forces. Syrian state media said the insurgents shelled residential homes in the northern countryside of Hama, an area controlled by government forces, causing damages. Syrian State news agency SANA said army units responded to the source of the rockets with artillery. Human Rights Watch said the Syrian-Russian military alliance has used internationally banned indiscriminate weapons, such as barrel bombs and incendiary weapons, in populated areas in northwest Syria in recent weeks. More than 3 million people live in the rebel-held area, nearly half of them already displaced from other rounds of violence. Government forces began a ground offensive in late April against areas under rebel control since 2015, after a Russia-Turkey-backed cease-fire in place for months failed to reduce the influence of extremists in the stronghold or open a highway that links government-controlled cities. Some areas in the stronghold have been in rebel hands since as early as 2011, when the civil war began. — The Associated Press

Pope to meet Putin before Vatican Ukraine meeting By Nicole Winfield and Nataliya Vasilyeva The Associated Press

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Vatican next month, a day before Catholic leaders from Ukraine gather at the Holy See to discuss the continuing conflict there and the fallout from the schism between the Russian and Ukrainian Orthodox Churches. The Vatican confirmed the July 4 audience Thursday. It will be the third meeting between Francis and Putin.

Francis and Moscow Patriarch Kirill sat down for talks in 2016 in the first meeting of the heads of both churches in a century. That summit, in Cuba, was seen as a possible step toward a papal visit to Russia. Not a single pope has ever set foot in Russia. Asked if Putin would extend an invitation for Francis to visit Russia, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Thursday that it was too early to say. Last month, the Vatican announced that Francis had invited the leadership of Ukraine’s Greek Catholic Church, a minority

eastern rite church loyal to the pope, for meetings July 5-6. The aim, it said, was to lend support “in the delicate situation in which Ukraine finds itself.” Last year, the Orthodox Church of Ukraine formally split from the Russian Orthodox Church in a schism recognized by the spiritual leader of the world’s Orthodox Christians. The push for a fullfledged and independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church was bolstered by fighting in eastern Ukraine between government forces and Russia-backed rebels.

The Vatican hasn’t entered into the fray for fear of upsetting relations with the various players. It said the summit of the Greek Catholic leadership is aimed at helping “promote peace and understanding, where possible, with the Latin rite church and other churches and Christian communities.” Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and backs separatist rebels who have been fighting Ukrainian forces in the country’s east for the past five years, a conflict that has left over 13,000 dead.

touted the creation of an independent Ukrainian church as a cornerstone of his unsuccessful bid for re-election. Poroshenko and many other prominent figures have argued that it was vital to set up an independent Ukrainian church and sever centuries-long ties with the Russian church after the annexation of Crimea. Moscow accused Kyiv of trying to use church issues for political purposes. Earlier this year, Putin criticized the decision to set up a new Orthodox church in Ukraine, saying that it was rooted in “struggle for power” and triggered “animosity and in-

tolerance.” He also warned of sectarian violence and said that Moscow is ready to “do everything to protect human rights, including freedom of conscience.” Some Ukrainian parishes saw scuffles and clashes earlier this year between the proponents of the new church and those who wanted to stay affiliated with the Moscow Patriarchate. But the violence has overall been sporadic and low-level. Ukraine’s new President Volodymyr Zelenskiy eschewed Poroshenko’s religious policy and said that the state should not interfere in religious affairs.

In pursuit of a green thumb


his spring, I decided to get serious about gardening. By gardening, I mean finding the most hearty, resilient plants I could and sticking them in a variety of hodgepodge troughs and decorative pots on my front porch. By serious, I mean planning to completely gut the small plot of grass in front of said porch, grab some rocks from the beach and turn it into a quaint garden, before giving up on that idea in favor of something less ambitious. Given my track record with keeping things alive (poor to dismal) I figured perennials would be the safest way for me to go this year. I popped down to a local feed and garden store in Homer and spent the better part of two full weekends meticulously browsing the many rows and greenhouses, making notes, perfecting my choices to fit the perfect color scheme and doubling back after second guessing myself. By the end of it all, I came away with a branching, creeping bush that produces small, bluepurple blooms, a mixture of purple and orange flowers which I believe are pansies (or something else that starts with a P) and two strong, tall lupines of a color that is yet to be determined. Come on. After an intro like that, did you really think I’d remember the proper names of all those plants by the time I got around to writing this? Spring came early to Homer, and with it my confidence. I rehabilitated my pots and small plastic flowerbeds with what I assume is top notch soil (the bag looked pretty fancy). I arranged my patio furniture to align perfectly with all my assorted plants once they were in. I got all the plant starters (no seeds for this gal. It’s best to know one’s strengths) nice and cozy in their various homes and gave them a big helping of water. Then it rained for about a week straight. I could tell my little wards were drenched and unhappy in their pots, but, not knowing how best to help them, decided to ride it out. Most of them pulled through and we moved on to drier, sunnier times. I managed to save two of the poppies (or did I say pansies?) from a savage attack from some small, unknown critter, that from the looks of it had tried to burrow into their home in the dirt. All this and a few odd weeks later, everything is still technically alive, but not flourishing in the way I told myself they would this year. I look at the lupines lining the Homer Spit this summer, as they do every summer — decorating its length with their bright splash of purple. They are an iconic Alaska plant.

Ostrander cruises to steeple final Boise State star opens door to possible historic nationals 3-peat Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The run at a historic threepeat for Boise State’s Allie Ostrander began Thursday night with a relatively easy preliminary win at the NCAA Division I Track and Field Championships in Austin, Texas. Ostrander won a semifinal heat in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase Thursday to qualify for Saturday’s championship final, running a time of 9 minutes, 44.32 seconds, to finish as the top seeded athlete in the event. Ostrander’s personal best in the event is 9:38.57. Ostrander, a redshirt junior for the Broncos, had to finish top five in order to earn an automatic spot in Saturday’s final. The 2015 Kenai Central grad is looking to become

the first women to win three straight national steeplechase crowns, and will go for the record at 2:54 p.m. (AKDT) on a nationally-televised broadcast on ESPN2. Running with the lead pack for the first 1,200 meters, Ostrander took the lead and began to steadily put a gap on the field, making it to the finish line over three seconds clear of second place, setting a facility record in the process at Mike A. Myers Stadium at the University of Texas Austin. “The first race of NCAA’s is always kind of nerve-wracking,” Ostrander said in a Boise State press release. “It was nice to get through the prelims cleanly and focus my attention on the final.” Ostrander will also attempt the steeple and 5,000-meter double for a third straight year. The women’s 5,000 final is

Blues edge closer to the Cup St. Louis defeats Boston to take 3-2 Finals series lead By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — From last place in the league to the brink of their first Stanley Cup championship, the St. Louis Blues need one more win to complete their improbable journey. They have a young goaltender leading the way. Jordan Binnington stopped 38 shots, and the Blues withstood the emotional rush of Zdeno Chara’s return to beat the Bruins 2-1 on Thursday night and take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven final. They can win the championship at home in Game 6 on Sunday night. “We’ve had quite the season so far. We’ve been through quite a lot,” defenseman Colton Parayko said. “But we continued to battle. We never gave up on each other. It put us closer together, especially now.” One game after chopping down the Bruins’ giant captain with a deflected puck off his jaw, the Blues quieted the rest of a city still celebrating its last championship: The New England Patriots were receiving their Super Bowl rings a few miles away, the second in what Bostonians hoped would be a third title in the last 12 months. But it’s St. Louis — whose Rams lost to the Patriots in the 2002 Super Bowl, and

whose Cardinals fell to the Red Sox in the 2004 and 2013 World Series — that is one win from skating off with the Stanley Cup. “We’ve got a big job ahead of us, that’s the way I look at it,” said coach Craig Berube, who took over when Mike Yeo was fired

in November with the team mired in last place in the Central Division. “I hope our team looks at it that way.” Ryan O’Reilly and David Perron scored for St. Louis, which has won two straight See BLUES, page A8

Oilers blasted in ABL season opener Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The Peninsula Oilers opened their 2019 Alaska Baseball League season with an 11-1 loss to the Anchorage Bucs Thursday at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage. Powered by a deep lineup that outhit the Oilers 16-6, the Bucs were able to break open a scoreless game early with four runs in the bottom of the second,

including a two-run homer by Blake Paugh. Paugh went deep twice and finishe 3 for 5 with three RBIs. The Oilers got hits from Victor Carlino, Damon Keith, Skyler Messinger, Drew Thorpe, Camden Vasquez and Kenai Central grad Paul Steffensen, who collected his first career ABL hit in his league debut with a leadoff single in the top of the ninth inning. Steffensen ended up 1 for 4.

Jonathan Carlos started but only lasted two innings for the Oilers on the mound. Carlos gave up five runs on five hits and two walks, with three strikeouts. Eric Reardon, Jacob Reed and Keith finished it out in relief, with Reed being the only reliever to not allow a run in his three frames of work. Mason Wells whiffed six in five innings of pitching for the Bucs, giving up a run on four hits against the Oilers.

After a scoreless opening to the game, Anchorage got on the board in the bottom of the second with a two-out single by Chad Castillo that scored two runs for a Bucs lead. That was followed by a two-run blast by Paugh for a 4-0 lead. The Bucs led 8-0 before Peninsula broke its shutout in the top of the fifth inning, getting an RBI single by Carlino to go through the gap. See OPEN, page A9

Geologists search for large, glacier-transported granitic boulders

laciers have carried granitic boulders 200-plus miles down Cook Inlet from interior mountains during the last two glaciations. The most recent glaciation deposited hundreds of these “erratic” boulders in the Sterling-Soldotna area. This glacial expansion, known as the Moosehorn stade, climaxed about 22,000 years ago, we think. The earlier glaciation was much larger, nearly filling the Cook Inlet trough, almost covering the Caribou Hills and extending beyond Kodiak. We estimate the age of this “penultimate” glaciation at 50-70,000 years, based on dates of similar glaciations in the Alaska and Brooks Ranges.

R efuge N otebook E d B erg & D ick R eger We want to pin down the timing of these two glacial advances, and possibly get dates on even older glaciations. We plan to use “cosmogenic exposure” dating to estimate how long the boulders have been sitting in their present positions after being dropped by retreating glaciers. Here is the basic idea: The Earth’s surface is constantly bombarded by cosmic rays created by supernovae explosions many light years away. These

cosmic rays create new elements (isotopes) like Beryllium-10 and Chlorine-36 in the upper surface of boulders exposed to the sky. The outer inch of a boulder can be sampled and taken into a lab to measure the new isotopes; the greater the proportion of new isotopes, the longer the exposure. Granitic rocks are particularly good for this kind of dating because their quartz crystals trap the new isotopes. Cosmogenic dating doesn’t tell the age of the rock; it only tells how long the rock surface has been exposed to cosmic rays. The rock itself is much older, perhaps 50 to 250 million years. During the relatively recent glaciations, massive See BIG, page A9

since a 7-2 loss at home in Game 3. It was the first time in the series a team has won two in a row. Tuukka Rask stopped 19 shots and Jake DeBrusk scored for Boston. “It’s behind us now, but it’s tough,” said Bruins forward Noel Acciari, who was flattened on what the Bruins thought was an illegal hit right before Perron’s goal. “Tough pill to swallow. It’s a must-win from here on out.” Chara left Game 4 dripping blood after taking that puck off his face, but he gave the building a lift when he followed Rask onto the ice for the pregame skate wearing a fullface shield. He got a lengthy cheer for his introduction, and he went out of the way to deliver the game’s first hit, just 15 seconds in, on Brayden Schenn. When things went bad later, the crowd tried to spur the team on with chants of “Chara!” But the 42-year-old defenseman’s toughness could only carry so far. O’Reilly scored in the opening minute of the second period, backhanding in a rebound for his third goal in his last five periods. It was still 1-0 midway through the third when the referees disregarded a leg sweep by Tyler Bozak that knocked Acciari out of the game. But he was still on the ice when Perron followed with a shot that banked off Rask’s pad and into the net.

Keuchel, Braves agree to 1-year, $13M contract By RONALD BLUM AP Baseball Writer

NEW YORK — Free agent pitcher Dallas Keuchel and the Atlanta Braves have agreed to a one-year contract that would pay the 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner about $13 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday night because the agreement was subject to Keuchel passing a physical, which is scheduled for Friday. Keuchel’s contract would include a salary of about $21.21 million, and he would get a prorated share that amounts to approximately $13 million because 114 days will remain in the 186-day season. A 31-year-old left-hander, Keuchel was 12-11 with a 3.74 ERA in 34 starts last season for Houston and turned down a $17.9 million qualifying offer in November.

Kepler homers 3 times, Twins avoid sweep to Tribe CLEVELAND (AP) — Max Kepler homered three times and José Berríos (8-2) locked up Cleveland’s lineup into the seventh inning as the Minnesota Twins avoided a sweep — and their first three-game losing streak — by beating the Indians 5-4 on Thursday night. Kepler, who entered hitless in his previous 21 atbats, connected in the first, third and seventh innings off Indians starter Trevor Bauer (4-6). Kepler also walked in the fifth. The 26-year-old outfielder came up in the ninth with a chance to become the 19th player in history to hit four homers in one game — a feat rarer than a perfect game. But left-hander Josh Smith kept the left-handed swinging Kepler in the park, getting him to hit a hard grounder to the right side that he beat out for a single.

It was Kepler’s second career three-homer game. The other one also came against the Indians on Aug. 1, 2016. The AL-Central leading Twins took the series finale and again moved 10½ games ahead of Cleveland, whose run of three straight division titles could be coming to an end. Indians rookie Oscar Mercado’s pinch-hit homer in the ninth pulled Cleveland to 5-4 before Taylor Rogers retired Roberto Pérez on a groundout for his sixth save. ASTROS 8, MARINERS 7, 14 INNINGS SEATTLE (AP) — Myles Straw led off the 14th inning with a triple and scored on Yuli Gurriel’s sacrifice fly, and Houston outlasted pesky Seattle in the longest game of the season by innings for either

team. Seattle staged tying rallies in the ninth and 10th innings and loaded the bases in the bottom of the 14th thanks to three walks by Chris Devenski (1-0), but the right-hander got Shed Long to fly out to end it. Houston led 5-1 after 6 1/2 innings but Seattle chipped away, tying it at 6 in the ninth on Edwin Encarnacion’s single against closer Roberto Osuna. That prevented Justin Verlander from becoming the first 10game winner in the AL. Matt Festa (0-1) allowed Straw’s triple — a ball that was played poorly by right fielder Domingo Santana — and one walk in the 14th for the Mariners.

BREWERS 5, MARLINS 1 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Christian Yelich hit his major league-leading 23rd home run and Mike Moustakas added two homers to lead Milwaukee over Miami.

Milwaukee won the series finale after getting outscored 24-3 in the first two games. The Brewers are a percentage point behind the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs. Yelich hit a two-run homer in the first off Caleb Smith (34).

ROCKIES 3, CUBS 1 CHICAGO (AP) — Peter Lambert (1-0) allowed four hits over seven innings and struck out nine to win his major league debut. The 22-yearold right-hander was selected in the second round with the 44th overall pick of the 2015 amateur draft, He also singled on his first pitch as a big league batter, using a two-tone bat to loop a fastball from José Quintana (45) to right-center field. Scott Oberg threw a perfect ninth for this third save, completing a five-hitter. Colorado took a 2-0 lead in the third when David Dahl hit an RBI single and scored on the first of Ian Desmond’s two doubles.

Granitic boulders can be found throughout upper Cook Inlet, the Anchorage bowl, and across the Kenai Peninsula lowland to the mouth of Kachemak Bay.

Not so with my own lupines. They are stouter, brighter and more boisterous — essentially made to be looked at. They grab the eye, but they do not thrive in less-thanperfect conditions like the Spit flowers. Maybe it’s just me. I’m factoring in a large margin of user error here. I can’t control the frequent downpours that douse my plants with more water than they want or need. I sometimes neglect to notice when they’ve gone a bit more dry than they should, and I don’t mind telling you I’m less than perfect at actually following the planting directions. Root needs be dammed, I pictured my lupine in this specific pot, so in this pot it shall live! I’m not a perfect plant mother. I wouldn’t be invited to sit on the PTA, let’s leave it at that.

Wind, rain, neglect, errant bicycle tires — the works. Am I really so hopeless, or will the wilder ones always win out? Is it something in their plant veins? I know there’s more to gardening than sticking a plant in a pot and hoping for the best, and I do think I’m learning some things as I go along. When one of my flower children don’t seem to be feeling very well (leaves drooping or dry and brittle) I try moving them around the porch to benefit from different concentrations of sunlight. When a plant seems to be going a little catawampus, I always make sure to restructure the dirt around them to give a more stable base. Sometimes, when my neighbors aren’t looking, I even talk to them a little. Just your average small talk about work and the weather — nothing extravagant. What can I say?

Bradley leads after 1st round of Canadian Open ANCASTER, Ontario (AP) — Keegan Bradley had a 7-under 63 for a one-shot lead after the first round of the RBC Canadian Open on Thursday. “Today I was in complete control of my ball,” Bradley said. “Then when you couple that with feeling good on the greens, that’s when a 63 or a good, nice round happens.” Bradley was convinced that his clubhouse lead would not withstand the afternoon groups, but it did. Roberto Castro of the U.S., was the only player that teed off in the second wave to reach second, tying Canada’s Nick Taylor, Ireland’s Shane Lowry, South Korea’s Sungjae Im and South Africa’s Erik van Rooyen. This year the tournament has moved up in the golf calendar, making it a lead-in event to the U.S. Open and drawing a significantly stronger group of competitors. Defending tournament champion Dustin Johnson, the No. 2 player in the world, shot a 1-over 71. Last year Johnson pulled away from the field after a nearly two-hour rain delay to win his first Canadian Open, firing 6-under 66 in last year’s final round to finish at 23 under. Brooks Koepka, fresh off his PGA Championship win, shot an even-par 70 and is tied for 84th. Taylor of Abbotsford, British Columbia, led the Canadian contingent, shooting a 6-under 64. Taylor, who started on hole No. 10, made four birdies in a row to open his back nine at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club. Mackenzie Hughes was one of five Canadians within three shots of Brad-

ley. Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford had a 5-under 65, while David Hearn of nearby Brantford, Ontario, and Drew Nesbitt of Shanty Bay, Ontario, both tied Hughes. As soon as Hughes’ partners were done teeing off at No. 13, he bent down, opened up a small bag and pulled out a jersey. It took a moment for fans to realize what he was doing, but as Hughes straightened out the familiar black and red of a Kawhi Leonard Toronto Raptors jersey, the cheers rose to a crescendo, with spectators pounding on the boards that surround the hockey-themed hole at the RBC Canadian Open known as The Rink. Like many Raptors fans, Hughes hopes that Toronto wins the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors and can re-sign Leonard, who will become a free agent this summer. “I don’t think my wearing the jersey influenced him at all, but I hope that he stays,” Hughes said. “I try to have some fun with that hole. Life’s short so, whatever, I’m just going to have some fun,” said Hughes, who donned a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey at last year’s version of the Rink at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario. “The crowd enjoys that stuff so it’s fun for me to do. “I love all these Toronto sports teams whether it’s Leafs, Raptors, Blue Jays. That was just a fun way to show my Toronto pride and Canada pride.” Hughes, from nearby Dundas, Ontario, walked up the fairway in the jersey to chants of “Let’s go Raptors”

Maddon thinking ahead with Kimbrel CHICAGO (AP) — Cubs manager Joe Maddon is projecting how to use Craig Kimbrel, even before Chicago announces a deal with the free agent closer. Maddon said Thursday he thought the 31-yearold right-hander might be ready to pitch in about three weeks. “I would imagine in the position that’s he’s been in, he had some kind of a strat-

egy of program mapped out,” Maddon said. “The first thing you do is find out and then set up program. You think about a three-week window, normally it sounds right. Think about relief pitchers in spring training. Conventionally it would be like that kind of a window. But you’ve got to talk to the guy first and see what he’s been doing.” Kimbrel, who has 333 saves and a 1.91 ERA over

PARIS (AP) — Sure, Novak Djokovic wants to win each match he plays. And, yes, he wants to come through at key moments, such as when he got broken early in his French Open quarterfinal and was in danger of dropping a set for the first time in the tournament. What matters most to Djokovic, though, is the big picture. And so he’s excited to be two victories away from doing something only one other man, Rod Laver, ever has in tennis: holding all four major titles at once on two separate occasions. “The longer I play or the further I go, I guess, in my career, the sense of history-making is only getting stronger. That’s one of the greatest motivations I have, obviously,” Djokovic said after a methodical 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 dismantling of Alexander Zverev on Thursday. Djokovic already won four straight majors in 201516. And since his shocking loss to unheralded Italian player Marco Cecchinato in the quarterfinals last year at Roland Garros, Djokovic has compiled a 26-0 record at the Grand Slams, winning Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, and the Australian Open along the way. “There is no better way

to make history of the sport than to win Slams and play your best in the biggest events,” Djokovic said. “Those are the pinnacle achievements that you can have in our sport.” Due to Wednesday’s washout, Djokovic will be back on the court without a day’s rest for Friday’s semifinals against Dominic Thiem. Thiem, last year’s runnerup, rolled past 10th-seeded Karen Khachanov 6-2, 6-4, 6-2 . In the other semifinal, 11time French Open champion Rafael Nadal renews his rivalry with Roger Federer. It’s the first time since 2011 that all top four seeds have reached the semifinals in Paris. Even if Djokovic raises another trophy come Sunday, however, Laver will remain the only man to have won all four Grand Slams in the same calendar year twice, in 1962 and 1969. Yet even Laver is awed by what Djokovic is accomplishing. “I marvel at someone like Novak with his ability and his consistency,” Laver said. “When you look at the way he plays the game, he doesn’t go bang, bang, bang, ace, volleys. He wins every individual point from the baseline.” With so much physical exertion, there was a moment

nine major league seasons, turned down a $17.9 million qualifying offer from Boston last November and remained a free agent. Starting this week, a team could sign him without the loss of amateur draft picks or international signing bonus pool allocation. Chicago’s bullpen has 11 blown saves this year. Brandon Morrow has not returned from offseason

elbow surgery, and Pedro Strop came back Tuesday from a hamstring injury that had sidelined him since May 6. Strop and Steve Cishek have been closing. “When you get a guy like Kimbrel, whoever was being utilized, who was in that role easily steps aside,” he said. “When the whole group realize this makes us better, then everybody falls in line.”

Eagles sign 4-year extension with Wentz By ROB MAADDI AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz proved to the Philadelphia Eagles in three years he’s worth a huge investment. Wentz and the Eagles have agreed on a four-year contract extension through the 2024 season. The deal announced Thursday night adds four years to Wentz’s rookie contract. It’s worth $128 million with more than $107 million guaranteed, according to ESPN.

“From the moment I got drafted here, I knew this place was special, I knew they had the most passionate fans in the world, in all of sports, and I knew we had the opportunity to build something truly special and to be cemented here means the world to me,” Wentz wrote on Twitter. Wentz is 23-17 in three seasons as the starting quarterback but has missed 13 games, including five playoff contests over the past two years. He finished third in NFL MVP voting in 2017

Djokovic has history within grasp By ANDREW DAMPF AP Sports Writer

and went on to shoot a 4-under 66 to finish the first round in a tie for 15th. He would have been in an even better position if he hadn’t double-bogeyed the 18th hole, his only score worse than par. “Just spoiled it at the end there, but I was 6 under through 17 and it was pretty stress free for the most part,” Hughes said. “All in all it’s a great day score-wise, just not the way I wanted to finish.” There are 26 Canadians in the field at the national championship, and they’re all hoping to end a 65-year spell of futility. The previous Canadian to win the event was Pat Fletcher in 1954 at Vancouver’s Point Grey Golf and Country Club. “We all obviously want to be the first one to win this, but we all want each other to do well,” said Hadwin, who briefly delayed his post-round news conference so that Hughes could concentrate on teeing off nearby. “Any Canadian winner is good.” NOTES: A three-minute pause in play starting at 12:10 p.m. was held as six planes from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum flew over the course to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy, France. The group of planes included a rare Lancaster Mk 10 bomber from the Second World War and a modern CC-130 Hercules. “It’s obviously an emotional day for a lot of people,” Hadwin said. “To kind of see the planes that were used and then a couple newer age ones, it was pretty cool to stand on the fairway and see that.”

against Zverev when Djokovic appeared out of breath after sending a backhand wide to give the fifth-seeded German a break and a chance to serve out the opening set. But Djokovic found his second wind, started pushing Zverev back and forth to the corners like a windshield wiper, broke right back and reeled off five straight games to take the set and a 3-0 lead in the second. “(I) really thought that the first set should have gone my way,” Zverev said. “Once he’s in control, he’s very tough to beat. He’s world No. 1 for a reason.”

Anisimova topples defending champ PARIS (AP) — Amanda Anisimova smacked one last backhand winner to complete her upset of defending champion Simona Halep in the French Open quarterfinals, flung her racket and covered her mouth with both hands. Eyes wide, Anisimova then spread her arms with palms up and said, “What?!” In a tournament filled with surprises, Anisimova provided the latest Thursday. Just 17 and ranked merely 51st, yet possessing the mindset and mien of someone much more experienced and accomplished, the American withstood a late charge by Halep and

won 6-2, 6-4 to reach her first Grand Slam semifinal. “I don’t think it will sink in, at least not for today. Yeah, I mean, it’s crazy,” said Anisimova, who was born in New Jersey to Russian parents and moved to Florida when she was 3. “I really can’t believe the result today. And getting the opportunity to play against Simona, that’s amazing. But how it ended is even crazier to me.” That’s a fair assessment of the entire tournament. Serena Williams, No. 1 Naomi Osaka and No. 2 Karolina Pliskova lost in the third round; Angelique Kerber and Caroline Wozniacki were gone in the first. The highest-seeded player in the semifinals is No. 8 Ash Barty, the Australian who will face Anisimova. Barty advanced by beating No. 14 Madison Keys of the United States 6-3, 7-5. “I felt,” Barty said, “like I was in control.” The other semifinal is No. 26 Johanna Konta of Britain against unseeded 19-yearold Marketa Vondrousova of the Czech Republic. Because rain washed out all play Wednesday, the women’s semifinals — normally Thursday, one after another in the main stadium — will be played simultaneously on the second- and third-largest courts Friday morning.

Today in History Today is Friday, June 7, the 158th day of 2019. There are 207 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 7, 1998, in a crime that shocked the nation, James Byrd Jr., a 49-year-old black man, was hooked by a chain to a pickup truck and dragged to his death in Jasper, Texas. (Two white men were later sentenced to death; one of them, Lawrence Russell Brewer, was executed in 2011 and the other, John William King, was executed in April, 2019. A third defendant received life with the possibility of parole.) On this date: In 1712, Pennsylvania’s colonial assembly voted to ban the further importation of slaves. In 1769, frontiersman Daniel Boone first began to explore present-day Kentucky. In 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia offered a resolution to the Continental Congress stating “That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States.” In 1848, French painter and sculptor Paul Gauguin was born in Paris. In 1892, Homer Plessy, a “Creole of color,” was arrested for refusing to leave a whites-only car of the East Louisiana Railroad. (Ruling on his case, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld “separate but equal” racial segregation, a concept it renounced in 1954.) In 1948, the Communists completed their takeover of Czechoslovakia with the resignation of President Edvard Benes (BEH’-nesh). In 1958, singer-songwriter Prince was born Prince Rogers Nelson in Minneapolis. In 1965, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Griswold v. Connecticut, struck down, 7-2, a Connecticut law used to prosecute a Planned Parenthood clinic in New Haven for providing contraceptives to married couples. In 1977, Britons thronged London to celebrate the silver jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, who was marking the 25th year of her reign. In 1981, Israeli military planes destroyed a nuclear power plant in Iraq, a facility the Israelis charged could have been used to make nuclear weapons. In 1993, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that religious groups could sometimes meet on school property after hours. Ground was broken for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. In 2004, a steady, near-silent stream of people circled through the rotunda of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, where the body of the nation’s 40th president lay in repose before traveling to Washington two days later for a state funeral. Ten years ago: Extreme-right parties gained in European Parliament elections, including the first seats won by the all-white British National Party. Roger Federer completed a career Grand Slam, winning his first French Open title by sweeping surprise finalist Robin Soderling 6-1, 7-6 (1), 6-4. The British musical “Billy Elliot” won 10 Tony Awards, including best musical and a unique best actor prize for the three young performers who shared the title character: David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik and Kiril Kulish. Five years ago: Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan was critically injured when a Walmart tractor-trailer rammed into his chauffeured limousine bus on the New Jersey Turnpike, setting off a chain-reaction crash that killed fellow comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair. Ukraine’s new president, Petro Poroshenko, took the oath of office, calling for pro-Russian rebels in the country’s east to lay down their arms. Maria Sharapova won her second French Open title in three years, beating fourth-seeded Simona Halep 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-4 in the final. California Chrome failed in his bid to win the first Triple Crown in 36 years, losing the Belmont Stakes by coming in fourth to long shot Tonalist. One year ago: The Trump administration said in a court filing that it would no longer defend key parts of the Affordable Care Act, including provisions that guarantee access to health insurance regardless of any medical conditions; it was a rare departure from the Justice Department’s practice of defending federal laws in court. In advance of a summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump declared that “attitude” is more important than preparation. A government report found that suicide rates inched up in nearly every U.S. state from 1999 through 2016. The Washington Capitals claimed their first NHL title with a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final in Las Vegas. Today’s Birthdays: Movie director James Ivory is 91. Former Canadian Prime Minister John Turner is 90. Actress Virginia McKenna is 88. Singer Tom Jones is 79. Actor Ronald Pickup is 79. Poet Nikki Giovanni is 76. Actor Ken Osmond (TV: “Leave It to Beaver”) is 76. Former talk show host Jenny Jones is 73. Americana singer-songwriter Willie Nile is 71. Actress Anne Twomey is 68.

Thought for Today: “That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: ‘Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.’” -- Dorothy Parker, American writer (born 1893, died this date in 1967).

Grief clouds woman’s life 20 years after loss of baby though the baby was stillborn, I’m sure the loss was grieved by your grandfather as well as your aunt.

DEAR ABBY: Our oldest son has had a girlfriend for almost two years. She’s a lovely, kind and quality person, the type you would want him Abigail Van Buren to marry. The problem I’m having is that I have slipped and called her by the name of his former girlfriend. This happens sometimes during casual conversation, especially when I’m not concentrating. I have tried to be careful because I don’t want to hurt her or my son’s feelings, but sadly, I have. I know she has heard me at least a couple of times. I have no affinity for the former girlfriend. Abby, this is damaging my relationship with my son and his girlfriend although she is too classy to say a word. What do I do?

That she would throw a birthday party a year later and expect everyone to participate as if the child had lived is truly sad.

DEAR ABBY: My brother-in-law is starting a business and has offered my husband a job he is well-qualified for. I think it’s a bad idea to mix family and business. I should mention that it’s my husband’s brother, and in the past when my husband has done odd jobs for him, he has had trouble getting paid for them. Do you agree with me that it’s a bad idea for my husband to work for his brother?

-- NOT SO SURE DEAR NOT: Working for a relative can pack a double whammy because of unresolved emotional baggage that can come with the job, but it’s not always a bad thing. Sometimes it works out very well. However, because your husband’s brother has a history of not paying his debts, I agree with you that in this case, it would be a bad idea.

PROPERTY TAXES Dear Readers: We continue to have an amazing response to a Sound Off letter about rising property taxes. One letter in particular spoke volumes about property taxes for the elderly. -- Heloise “Dear Heloise: I read about escalating property taxes in your column. I live in a small town of about 9,000 people with no sewers and no streetlights, and my taxes were $4,000.19. We are seniors, and for us that’s a lot of money, especially on a fixed income. It is extremely hard to come up with the money, and this may result in having to sell our home. I don’t know if there are any options for us, but we are just like many other seniors who struggle to get by each month.” -- Joyce R. in California BRING YOUR OWN FOOD Dear Heloise: I just read the letter from Connie W. of Tucson, Arizona, in the San Angelo (Texas) StandardTimes. She asked what to feed her vegan sister-in-law. When I visit friends or relatives, since I have a special diet, I always take food that I can eat. I take enough for everyone else to enjoy with me if they choose to do so. That way, I don’t put a burden of preparing special food on my hosts, and I don’t have to worry about what I’ll eat. It’s always a good idea to let your hosts know in advance so they don’t have to worry about the menu on your account. -- Sylvia P., via email

DEAR ABBY: My aunt had a stillborn baby 20 years ago. At the time, I was a teenager. Ever since then she has lived a morbid lifestyle -- like you’d see in a scary movie. After the first year, she threw a party with a cake for all of us, and wanted us to sing “Happy Birthday” to a baby that never lived. When my grandfather died recently, she made sure the preacher announced that my grandfather also had another grandchild. I found out that when her cat died she kept it in the house for several days because she didn’t want to let it go. It bothers us a lot, because she acts like she is the victim in life and tries to make people feel guilty for being happy. How do we talk to her?

US and Mexico: Negotiators claim progress; no deal yet By JILL COLVIN, MATTHEW LEE and LUIS ALONSO LUGO Associated Press

WASHINGTON — U.S. and Mexican officials claim to be making progress as they labored for a second day to avert import tariffs. But President Donald Trump is still threatening to impose them as he tries to pressure Mexico into stemming the flow of Central American migrants across the United States’ southern border. Vice President Mike Pence, monitoring the talks from his travels in Pennsylvania, said Thursday the U.S. was “encouraged” by Mexico’s latest proposals but that, so far, tariffs still were set to take effect on Monday. He added that it would be “for the president to decide” whether Mexico was doing enough to head off the tariffs. Pence said that, among other issues, negotiators had been discussing a potential agreement to make it difficult for those who enter Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the U.S. Mexico has long resisted that request. Trump has threatened to impose a 5% tax on all Mexican goods beginning Monday as part of an escalating tariff regime opposed by many in his own Republican Party. The frantic, last-minute talks underscore Trump’s chaotic approach even when decisions have enormous economic consequences for both the U.S. and its closest allies. Trump has embraced tariffs as a tool he can use as leverage against other countries, dismissing the potential harm to American consumers and manufacturers. Traveling in Europe, Trump told reporters that negotiators had made “a lot of progress,” but continued to

play coy. “We’ll see what happens,” Trump said in Ireland before leaving for France to attend a D-Day ceremony. “But something pretty dramatic could happen. We’ve told Mexico the tariffs go on. And I mean it, too. And I’m very happy with it.” It remained unclear whether any deal could be struck with Trump out of the country. Many in Washington still expect the tariffs to go into effect barring a major new concession from Mexico, though lawmakers who have been in talks with both U.S. and Mexican officials said they were hopeful a deal could be reached to satisfy Trump, or at least delay the tariffs’ implementation. Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard spent several hours at the State Department Thursday morning, while Trump’s legal counsel and other Mexi-

can aides met at the White House Thursday afternoon. Ebrard told reporters as he left the State Department that progress was being made and that he was likely to return following consultations at the embassy. He returned in early evening. His spokesman, Roberto Velasco, tweeted that “Options continue to be explored.” “The stance of the United States is focused on measures of migratory control, ours on development,” he said. White House spokeswoman Mercedes Schlapp said in an interview that conversations were continuing but “it looks like we’re moving toward this path of tariffs because what we’ve seen so far is that the Mexicans, what they’re proposing, is simply not enough.” Pence, who led the discussions Wednesday with Secretary of State Mike

Japan plans carbon emission cuts, more nuclear energy TOKYO — Japan is calling for further efforts to cut carbon emissions by promoting renewables but also nuclear energy despite the 2011 Fukushima reactors meltdowns. The energy white paper, adopted by the Cabinet Friday, says Japan faces an “urgent task” of reducing carbon emissions coming from utilities that have relied heavily on fossil fuels to make up for shortages of cleaner nuclear energy. The call comes as the Fukushima nuclear reactors are slowly being restarted amid lingering antinuclear sentiments since the 2011 crisis. Japan wants further development of renewable energy and has set a 22% to 24% target while maintaining nuclear energy at around the same level. It also pledges to reduce carbon emissions by 26% from 2013 levels by 2030. So far it has so far achieved a 7% reduction.

Pompeo and other U.S. officials, told reporters in Pennsylvania that the administration had “made it very clear that our neighbors to the south, Mexico, must do more to end the tide of illegal immigration that is besetting our southern border.” During Wednesday’s talks, the gulf between the countries was clear as Mexico offered small, thus far undisclosed concessions, and the U.S. demanded major action. A senior administration official said the U.S. once again pressed Mexico to step up enforcement on its southern border and to enter into a “safe third country agreement” that would make it difficult for those who enter Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the U.S. But Mexico surprised U.S. officials Thursday when they returned to the negotiating table and said they would commit to what Pence had requested, according to the official, who cautioned that significant questions about timing and implementation remain.

NEW YORK — The online delivery wars are heating up inside shoppers’ homes. Walmart is now offering to have one of its employees deliver fresh groceries and put them in your refrigerator when you’re not home. The nation’s largest grocer said Friday that it will be offering the service this fall for more than one million customers in three cities: Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Missouri, and Vero Beach, Florida. Later this year, the service, called InHome Delivery, will also accept returns for items purchased on Two years ago, Walmart tested a similar service in the Silicon Valley area but teamed up with delivery startup Deliv and worked with August Home, makers of smart locks and smart home accessories. That test has since been stopped. The new service is part of Walmart’s drive to expand its shopping options that include curbside pickup and online grocery delivery.

Protester arrested at Jeff Bezos Amazon conference in Vegas LAS VEGAS — A woman was arrested Thursday after approaching Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos and yelling about chicken farms on stage at a conference in Las Vegas, authorities said. Bezos’s appearance at Amazon’s re:Mars event at the Aria resort was briefly interrupted before the woman was surrounded by security guards and ushered away. Direct Action Everywhere spokesman Matt Johnson identified the protester as 30-year-old Priya Sawhney of Berkeley, California. Sawhney was held on suspicion of misdemeanor trespassing and may face more serious charges, Las Vegas police Officer Laura Meltzer said. Bezos was explaining plans to send satellites into space when the woman appeared on stage. Johnson said Sawhney was protesting conditions at a California poultry farm that supplies Amazon. — Associated Press

savings for the state, said DHSS spokesman Clinton Bennett. Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy sent a letter to President Donald Trump March 1 that discussed Medicaid block grants. Alaska House Democrats denounced the idea in a letter to state DHSS Commissioner Adam Crum last month. A report done for the state in early 2016 “found that costs of private coverage would be prohibitively high compared to Med-

icaid coverage,” the lawmakers wrote. Alaska is probably the least likely state for the concepts to work because of the state’s struggling private health insurance market, said Democratic state Rep. Zack Fields. “The idea that we’d make half-baked decisions with our largest federal stream of investment, which, by the way, is life or death for 215,000 Alaskans that rely on Medicaid health insurance — it’s just crazy,” Fields said.

able, said Joel Neimeyer, a consultant working with Akiak. “After the Anchorage/Mat-Su Valley earthquake in November of last year, Alaska is eligible for a lot of disaster funding,” Neimeyer said. Alaska’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is working with the village on possible relocation funding. The process is complicated. Akiak must obtain a contractor and conduct a

planning process, submit reports to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and compete with other communities. “If they don’t have an approved hazard mitigation process by October 31, they cannot compete,” Neimeyer said. Neimeyer estimated a seawall could cost $80 million. For now, Gilila said the community is stabilizing the riverbank with metal poles and burlap tarps.

ley Petroleum. The participating airports are in Homer, Kasilof, Kalifornsky Meadows, Kenai, Ninilchik, Quartz Creek, Seward and Soldotna. Pilots can start the run and pick up tickets from any of the 8 airports, but must register in Kenai and end their flight in Kenai to be eligible for the prizes. Registration is $40 the day of the Air Fair and includes a souvenir T-shirt as well as breakfast and lunch during the event. At noon the festivities will move over to the Kenai Airport for a barbecue and a military

appreciation ceremony. As pilots fly out and return from their Poker Run excursions around the peninsula, Air Fair visitors can enjoy a performance from the 9th Army band or take a ride in a historic aircraft with the Commemorative Air Force, with the day ending at 3 p.m. Military and private aircraft will be on display as well, including a World War II-era BT-13 Valiant built in 1942. All pilots are welcome to bring their aircraft to display, but Bondurant recommended calling her at 907-283-7951 before arriving to confirm that there is enough space.
