NOAA moves to protect whales The proposed critical habitats of the humpbacks will not affect fishing or recreational boating. By Michael Lockett Juneau Empire

Michael Armstrong / Homer News

Lee John Henry is brought into the Homer courtroom for his arraignment Oct. 17, 2016, in Homer. Henry is charged with firstdegree murder in the July 2013 death of Mark Matthew in Homer.

By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

A Homer man charged with murder three years ago will have his day in court this Tuesday in the Homer Courthouse. The trial for Lee John Henry, 58, will begin Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in Homer, with jury selection beginning Wednesday. Kenai Superior Court Judge Lance

Joanis will be presiding over the case. Henry was indicted by a grand jury in October of 2016 on one count of firstdegree murder, three counts of second-degree murder, one count of manslaughter and one count of firstdegree murder. The charges are in relation to the death of Mark Matthews, 61, in 2013 near the Poopdeck Trail in Homer. Matthews was

found with injuries to the left side of his head and his pockets turned Mark inside out. Matthews in During a 2013. trial call on Thursday, Public Defender Teri Hobart and District Attorney Scot Leaders had a disagreement over the

use of DNA analysis in the trial. Henry was not present in the courthouse Thursday but was listening in telephonically. Hobart had filed a motion earlier that morning requesting to dismiss the results of a DNA test from 2015. Joanis said that the motion filed by Hobart and issues regarding the DNA testing would be addressed at trial Tuesday.

Ben Carpenter, R-Nikiski, shares his story of serving in the military and encouraged others to do the same at a Veterans Day memorial service and celebration organized by VFW Post 10046, along with American Legion Post 20 and AmVets.

NOAA’s fisheries division, the National Marine Fisheries Service, has proposed creating a number of critical habitat sites ranging from the Channel Islands in southern California to the Bering Sea, including the waters off Juneau. The critical habitats, created with the aim of protecting the feeding areas of three separate groups of humpback whales, or Megaptera novaeangliae, will not affect anything except for federal agencies seeking to use those waters for other purposes, said Lisa Manning, an official with NOAA. Her presentation to the public on the proposed habitats was held at University of Alaska Southeast on Thursday evening, and was attended by more than 30 people. “A critical habitat does not establish a sanctuary or preserve. It does not affect recreational activities. It does not affect private lands,” Manning said. “It only affects federal activities.” The proposed habitats, which cover 175,182 square nautical miles in total, are the traditional feeding areas of three of the 14 major humpback whale distinct population segments (DPS), Manning said. The three groups that come to See whales, Page A2

Soldotna resident Marta Taylor (right) receives a check for a $25,000 scholarship from Lael Oldmixon, director of Alaska 529, at Froso’s restaurant in Soldotna on Monday.

A Soldotna woman received an unexpected birthday gift on Monday while out to lunch with her family — a $25,000 scholarship. Earlier this year, Marta Taylor checked a box on her application for the Alaska Permanent Fund dividend designating that half of her check be put into an Alaska 529 education savings account. Little did she know, checking that box put her in the running for Alaska 529’s

Scholarship Account Giveaway, which randomly selects one person to receive $25,000 from that savings account. Taylor was already celebrating her birthday at Froso’s with her family when she received the good news. Representatives from the Education Trust of Alaska, the group that manages the 529 savings accounts through T. Rowe Price, flew down from Fairbanks to present Taylor with a birthday cake and a giant check. “This is crazy … that’s a lot of

money!” Taylor said. Rather than using the money for her own tuition she intends to give the scholarship to her daughter, Ella Czarnezki, who is in 10th grade at River City Academy and plans to attend college in a few years. “An education is such a gift, and to have money to put towards it in Ella’s case is just incredible. I’m thrilled.” Taylor is currently taking online classes to obtain her degree in computer science See state, Page A2

Alaska and California to summer and feed spend the rest of their time west of Mexico, west of Central America and east of Taiwan respectively. These three groups are currently threatened, and protecting their feeding areas may help them to regain their footing, Manning said. Some of these groups may number 2,000 whales or less. “While we’ve seen some success with our other DPS but we don’t want these ones to get forgotten,” said Molly Zaleski, a marine scientist with ocean advocacy

and software engineering from Southern New Hampshire University. This will be Taylor’s second degree, as she earned a master’s degree in engineering earlier in life. “I’m 50, so it’s time to go back to school,” Taylor said. “When I got my master’s degree in engineering I worked my way through school and borrowed student loans and scraped my way through. So to have this to give to my daughter is just such a gift.” This year was the first time that Taylor checked the box for the 529 education savings account. She said she checked the box for her daughter as well. Czarnezki said that it was a really good feeling knowing that her mom was giving her the scholarship and that both her parents were investing in her future education. “I don’t know where I want to go yet, but I have a few ideas of what I want to study,” Czarnezki said. “I’m thinking about architecture, or maybe engineering or some kind of science.” Lael Oldmixon, who is the director of Alaska 529 and presented Taylor with the scholarship on Monday, confirmed that Taylor can use the funds for her daughter’s education.

group Oceana during the public comment period. Whales migrate north to feed on euphausiids and small fish to support population growth, Manning said during the presentation. The idea of the critical habitat designation is to limit the effects of climate change, direct harvest of prey in commercial fisheries, ocean noise, and pollution created by federal agencies or federal actions. Several sections of the proposed critical habits were excluded, including the region outside Anchorage, the ocean off of Los Angeles, the Southeast Alaska Acoustic Measurement Facility near Ketchikan and the Quinault Range Site in

Washington. The two Navy sites will continue on as usual, Manning said. “It makes sense ecologically and it makes sense economically,” Zaleski said during the public comment time, referring to the amount of carbon each whale ties up and their place in the food web, as well as the tourism whales generate through whale-watching tours. “Each large whale is worth about 2 million dollars to us. They have a lot of value to us.” Not everyone agreed. Doug Vincent-Lang, the commissioner of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, also gave public comment. “We’re disappointed the NMFS didn’t consult with

Alaska (Department of) Fish and Game,” VincentLang said. “These are large documents, and we’ve identified multiple fundamental flaws with your proposal that will take significant time to resolve.” Vincent-Lang said that policies in Alaska had been successful in helping humpback populations in the region to rebound from the edge, and expressed doubts that the designated critical habits would have much positive effect. “Portions of these areas are not even known humpback feeding grounds,” Vincent-Lang said. “We requested but were denied the opportunity to review the document.”

Today in History Today is Tuesday, Nov. 12, the 316th day of 2019. There are 49 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 12, 2001, American Airlines Flight 587, an Airbus A300 headed to the Dominican Republic, crashed after takeoff from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, killing all 260 people on board and five people on the ground. On this date: In 1815, pioneering American suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton was born in Johnstown, New York. In 1920, baseball got its first “czar” as Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis was elected commissioner of the American and National Leagues. In 1927, Josef Stalin became the undisputed ruler of the Soviet Union as Leon Trotsky was expelled from the Communist Party. In 1936, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge opened as President Franklin D. Roosevelt pressed a telegraph key in Washington, D.C., giving the green light to traffic. In 1942, the World War II naval Battle of Guadalcanal began. (The Allies ended up winning a major victory over Japanese forces.) In 1948, former Japanese premier Hideki Tojo and several other World War II Japanese leaders were sentenced to death by a war crimes tribunal. In 1977, the city of New Orleans elected its first black mayor, Ernest “Dutch” Morial (MAW’-ree-al), the winner of a runoff. In 1982, Yuri V. Andropov (ahn-DROH’-pawf) was elected to succeed the late Leonid I. Brezhnev as general secretary of the Soviet Communist Party’s Central Committee. In 1987, the American Medical Association issued a policy statement saying it was unethical for a doctor to refuse to treat someone solely because that person had AIDS or was HIV-positive. In 1990, Japanese Emperor Akihito (ah-kee-hee-toh) formally assumed the Chrysanthemum Throne. Actress Eve Arden died in Beverly Hills, California, at age 82. In 1996, a Saudi Boeing 747 jetliner collided shortly after takeoff from New Delhi, India, with a Kazak Ilyushin (il-YOO’-shin)-76 cargo plane, killing 349 people. In 1998, Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley filed a $433 million-dollar lawsuit against the firearms industry, declaring that it had created a public nuisance by flooding the streets with weapons deliberately marketed to criminals. (A judge dismissed the lawsuit in 2000; an appeals court ruled in 2002 that the city of Chicago could proceed; but the Illinois Supreme Court dismissed the lawsuit in 2004.) Ten years ago: Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan (nih-DAHL’ mah-LEEK’ hah-SAHN’) was charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder in the Fort Hood, Texas, shooting rampage. (Hasan was later convicted and sentenced to death.) James R. Lilley, a longtime CIA operative and later the U.S. ambassador to China, died in Washington, D.C., at age 81. Five years ago: President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) announced a ground-breaking agreement between their countries to curb carbon emissions blamed for climate change. Landing with a bounce after traveling 4 billion miles, a European Space Agency probe, Philae (FY’-lee), made history by successfully reaching the icy, dusty surface of a speeding comet. Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was a unanimous choice for his third NL Cy Young Award, and Cleveland’s Corey Kluber (KLOO’-bur) edged Seattle’s Felix Hernandez to win the AL honor for the first time. At 17, Lydia Ko became the youngest player to win the LPGA Tour’s rookie of the year award.

Mandatory student meal plans opposed at Alaska university FAIRBANKS — A University of Alaska Fairbanks student has launched a protest campaign against the school’s mandatory meal plans for undergraduates living on campus. Freshman Brennan Lippert, 19, said mandated meal plans are an extra financial burden for students who already pay high costs, The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Sunday. Lippert has carried a sign on campus reading, “Mandatory Meal Plans are a Scam,” while gathering nearly 280 student signatures on a petition. The university requires undergraduate students living on campus to buy a meal plan, with an exception for undergraduates in campus family housing, spokeswoman Marmian Grimes said. The school began requiring freshmen to live on campus this year.

ANCHORAGE — Some Alaskans are calling for greater financial transparency from Hilcorp Energy Co., the company seeking to buy BP’s North Slope assets, officials said. Hilcorp asked the Regulatory Commission of Alaska to allow recent years of financial records to remain confidential, The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday. BP announced plans in August to sell its Alaska assets, including the Prudhoe Bay oil field, to Hilcorp for $5.6 billion. The companies expect to finalize the deal next year. The regulatory commission is responsible for the aspects of the transaction involving the 800-mile trans-Alaska oil pipeline. The sale would give Hilcorp a 48% stake in the pipeline and operator Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, which

is a larger share than pipeline co-owners ConocoPhillips and ExxonMobil. The privately held company based in Houston said financial disclosure could hurt its competitive advantage. Public comments filed with the regulatory commission indicate some residents want Hilcorp to open its records to ensure it has the means to respond to a costly accident in the region that includes the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. There is less information available about Hilcorp than publicly traded companies such as BP, ConocoPhillips or Exxon Mobil Co., skeptics of the sale said. “We need to see their finances because they will become the most important oil and gas company in Alaska, full stop,” said Phil Wight, who is studying the proposal for the Alaska Public Interest Research Group, a consumer rights group. Others have applauded the deal they believe can boost Alaska’s economy by increasing exploration and squeezing more life out of the oil fields. Republican state Senate President Cathy Giessel said the sale will bring “substantial positive benefits” in the form of jobs, investment, oil production and state and local revenue. — Associated Press

Don’t abandon Iraqis who stood by U.S.


raqis who worked alongside U.S. troops during the war provided “essential mission support,” according to former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, a retired Marine Corps general who fought in that conflict. Iraqis served as interpreters, translators and guides. They “risked their own lives and their families’ lives,” Mattis said in a letter made public last year by Politico. “We owe them support for their commitment.” We do. But President Trump is turning his back on Iraqis waiting for the United States to keep its promise of possible resettlement. The number of U.S.-affiliated Iraqis who make it through the severe vetting process to resettlement in the United States has been reduced to a trickle of just a few hundred a year. Now the president has authorized the lowest refugee ceiling in the history of the program, 18,000 total for the current fiscal year, which will make it that much harder for the Iraqis to win visas. This is a sickening coda to the war and a terrible signal that the United States will not keep its commitments. A special immigrant visa program for the Iraqi interpreters, translators and others was closed to new applications five years ago, and those remaining — an estimated 110,000 — must apply through the Direct Access Program, a part of the refugee admissions process. In the refugee ceiling, the president set aside 4,000 spots for these Iraqis. But the number actually admitted is expected to be far less. The strict security checks can stretch on for years and sharply limit the number who get visas. According to the New York Times, interviews have been slowed since the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and consulate in Irbil ordered all nonessential employees out of Iraq for security reasons in May. As a result, teams of U.S. officers go to Iraq on temporary “circuit rides,” and this also restricts the flow. These interpreters and support staff did not abandon the U.S. troops during the war. One of them told the International Refugee Assistance Project last year that he had served side by side with U.S. troops in 2003 and 2004. “They became my brothers: they relied on me and I relied on them,” he said. He should not be abandoned. This is a question of duty, honor and commitment — values so often celebrated by politicians but, in this case, cruelly forsaken. — The Washington Post, Nov. 5

Spill plan review not about gutting rules


y work with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) began as manager of its oil spill planning and response programs several months before the 1989 T/V Exxon Valdez oil spill. I am currently the deputy commissioner. During my almost 30-year career I have served as the deputy commissioner and director of two divisions and worked under multiple administrations (Republican, Democrat and Independent). When the Exxon Valdez spill occurred, we (me, you, state and federal agencies, industry, fishermen, businesses, and every individual directly or indirectly affected by the spill) were woefully unprepared. In the wake of the spill, new statutes passed, regulations were written, staffing was increased, citizen involvement improved, escort tugs and double-hulled tankers were put in place, and spill prevention, planning, and preparedness for response began in earnest. My fingerprints are on almost all of that. There is no doubt another spill of that magnitude would still be a disaster, but it’s one we work hard to prevent and we are much better prepared to respond should another disaster occur. Recently, DEC announced a 90-day public scoping process to collect

public input on statutes and regulations regarding oil discharge prevention and contingency planning, many of which are nearly 30 years old. No changes are currently being proposed, but everything deserves to be looked at. We have simply asked you, the public, to review those existing rules and provide feedback. Are there requirements that are working well? Are there provisions that could be updated to reflect current risks and technologies? Has another jurisdiction “built a better mousetrap” that we should consider? Are there outdated requirements that don’t actually help prevention or response to spills? Are there provisions that should be more stringent? Are we missing anything? Let’s not wait for another disaster to force us into an “after-the-fact” review. The two oil spill Regional Citizens Advisory Councils (established under federal law after the Exxon spill), however, appear to have mistakenly concluded that this is an effort to gut the regulatory protections and have asked DEC to rescind the public scoping process. As federally sanctioned “watchdog” groups, I would instead ask them to welcome an open invitation to participate in a thorough and transparent

review of our spill prevention and response requirements. DEC is using a new method for this scoping effort where all comments are posted instantly on our website for all to see. DEC seeks input from the public, Regional Citizens Advisory Councils, and the regulated community to see if there are ways to update the regulations while maintaining or even improving environmental protection. Alaska can be open for business AND protect the environment. They are not mutually exclusive. I encourage everyone, particularly those with firsthand experience with contingency planning, major spills, laws, and regulations, to provide your input to DEC by Jan. 15, 2020. Comments can be viewed and submitted at http://alaskadec. In the end, DEC may decide the rules remain appropriate and relevant and not propose any changes. If we do propose improvements to spill prevention and response, those specific changes will go through their own public notice and comment period. What they won’t do is gut oil spill planning, preparedness, and response — not on my watch. Lynn Kent is the deputy commissioner of the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation.

Change is hard, but can be good for business — and the economy


laskans respect the fact that we live in a wild, unpredictable state. And that’s not just the weather. Decades ago, Alaska hitched its economic wagon to the oil industry, ensuring decades of ups and downs, growth and decline. It goes without question that oil and gas have been positive for our state, especially on the financial side. But it always has been and remains an industry in flux. Change is the only guarantee in life, especially in the business world, whether your company transports goods across the state or rents rooms to tourists. Our business does its best to anticipate change, and remain flexible when it inevitably arrives. Alaska now finds itself again preparing for a major sea change, this time the transition from BP to Hilcorp, a move that signals a new era in the oil and gas industry in Alaska. My business mantra is to find opportunity in change. As I examine the proposed sale of BP’s assets to Hilcorp, I see significant opportunity for all of us. Hilcorp represents an exciting new opportunity. No stranger to Alaska, Hilcorp has been operating in Alaska for years now, both in the Cook Inlet and on the North Slope. They’ve made a name for themselves in that time, proving that older oil and gas fields once thought to

be in perpetual decline could be worked over and made productive again. I’m appreciative of the jobs Hilcorp provides locally and especially for their positive attitude of being a responsible and generous corporate neighbor. All this means good things for Alaska’s economy. Our oil and gas industry is evolving, and that is good — again, change is inevitable. Alaska now can boast a diverse mix of companies in the state, from legacy partners like ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips, who continue to sanction new projects and invest in our communities, and newcomers like Hilcorp, who bring new ideas and change paradigms about what it takes to succeed in the oil business. From the Alaskan point of view, this means a combination of decades of tried-andtrue experience in Alaska, and fresh ideas about how to get more life out of old fields. For those of us who appreciate the jobs and economic opportunity such a combination presents, it’s the best of both worlds.

Democrats, Republicans to tussle for impeachment narrative — on TV By Mary Clare Jalonick and Zeke Miller Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Impeachable or not? Both Democrats and Republicans see the televised impeachment hearings starting this week as their first and best opportunity to shape public opinion about President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. Democrats believe the testimony will paint a vivid picture of presidential misconduct. Republicans say it will demonstrate just how lacking the evidence is for impeachment. They agree on one thing: The stakes are very high. Democrats plan a narrow focus in the hearings, and a narrative retelling of Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democrats as his administration withheld military aid to an Eastern European ally on Russia’s border. All three witnesses this week — top Ukraine diplomat William Taylor, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch — expressed concerns about Trump’s efforts in closed-door depositions last month. This time they’ll be on live TV — and newscasts for days afterward — for all Americans to see and hear. The Democrats see all three as highly credible, detail oriented and well positioned to tell that story to the American people. “This is a very simple, straightforward act,” said California Rep. Jackie Speier, a member of the House intelligence committee, which is conducting the hearings. “The president broke the

law. He went on a telephone call with the president of Ukraine and said I have a favor, though, and then proceeded to ask for an investigation of his rival.” Democrats say their best evidence isn’t even from the witnesses themselves, but from the rough transcript of that July call between Trump himself and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. Trump asked for the “favor” of the investigations as Zelenskiy mentioned the military aid. The witnesses have added detail on the circumstances of the call and have told investigators of concerns swirling in different corners of the administration as Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, pushed for the probes into Democratic rival Joe Biden and his family and into a possible Ukraine role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Taylor and Kent will testify on Wednesday, Yovanovitch on Friday. Yovanovitch plays a central role in the inquiry, as her ouster at Trump and Giuliani’s direction in May raised questions throughout the U.S. diplomatic community. Taylor was brought in to replace her and navigated Trump’s demands throughout the summer as the president brought his requests directly to Zelenskiy. Kent is a senior State Department official overseeing Ukraine who told investigators that he understood, as other witnesses did, the military aid to be in exchange for the investigations — the quid pro quo that is at the heart of the Democratic probe. Trump — who will surely be watching at the White House — has strongly denied any quid pro quo, and has bashed the diplomats by saying that none of them had firsthand knowledge

of his thinking. “It seems that nobody has any firsthand knowledge,” the president said last week. Republican questioning of the witnesses at the hearings is expected to turn on that point. None of the witnesses has testified to relevant conversations that they had with Trump himself, and several of the accounts involve conversations they heard about from other people. While closed-door testimony from multiple witnesses has largely reinforced the same story, Republicans say that the Democrats don’t have enough direct evidence. GOP lawmakers are also expected to defend the president’s words on the July call, which Trump has repeatedly called “perfect.” They argue that those words don’t explicitly show a quid pro quo. The GOP grilling is expected to veer into other arguments as well. A proposed witness list from House Republicans includes some figures from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation — a possible attempt by California Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the intelligence panel, to turn the narrative to GOP concerns that officials at the Department of Justice were biased against Trump. Meantime, the White House will face its first major communication test since the hiring of former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and former Treasury spokesman Tony Seyegh to work on what the West Wing calls “proactive impeachment messaging.” A White House official said Bondi and Seyegh have not started yet and may not be in place before the Wednesday hearings, owing to paperwork associated with entering White House employment.

Morales stepped down Sunday following weeks of massive protests over a disputed presidential election, but the resignation of every constitutionally designated successor left unclear who will take his place and how. Angry supporters of the socialist leader set barricades ablaze to block some roads leading to the country’s main airport, while his foes blocked most of the streets leading to the capital’s main square in front of Congress. — Associated Press

Sounders nab Seahawks top 49ers in OT another Cup By Josh Dubow

AP Pro Football Writer

SEATTLE (AP) — They waited a decade to enjoy a celebration like this. As the Seattle Sounders paraded the championship trophy around their home stadium, only those clad in red headed for the exits. Ten years after helping change the scope of Major League Soccer, Seattle finally got to see its home team host the championship match. And it was rewarded with a second celebration in the past four years. “The players and the fans deserve this,” Seattle coach Brian Schmetzer said. “The players persevered because again it was a first-half we needed to make some adjustments and they never quit. And the fans never stopped believing. I’m very happy and proud for the city and the fans.” Kelvin Leerdam settled the nerves of those home fans with his 57th minute goal off a deflection, Victor Rodríguez and Raul Ruidíaz added the cappers and the Sounders beat Toronto FC 3-1 on Sunday to claim the MLS Cup title. Playing before the second-largest crowd for an MLS Cup final, the Sounders withstood a nervy first 45 minutes where Toronto was the better side, before capitalizing on their

opportunities in the second half and setting off a wild celebration that lasted nearly an hour after the final whistle. CenturyLink Field shook when Rodriguez gave Seattle a 2-0 lead in the 76th minute and the stadium rattled again when Ruidíaz made it 3-0 in the 90th . “I got a little teary-eyed, not so much for winning the trophy but winning it at home with our fans and having that positivity and joyous moments that you can share with everybody,” Seattle goalkeeper Stefan Frei said. Seattle had craved this moment since it joined the league in 2009. The Sounders brought record crowds and record success — 11 straight playoff appearances — but its previous two appearances in the finals both required trips to Toronto. Seattle wanted to be on display, wanted to show how soccer-mad the area was, wanted the showcase of playing for a championship with a stadium crammed full of green. They got their wish. The 69,274 in attendance was a stadium record, the largest crowd to see a soccer match in Seattle, and the secondlargest to witness an MLS Cup final behind last year in Atlanta.

Tuttle keeps scoring for Whatcom Staff report Kenai Central graduate Zack Tuttle now has four goals and two assists for the Whatcom Community College men’s soccer team in Bellingham, Washington.

Tuttle scored his fourth goal of the season in a 4-0 win over Shoreline on Wednesday. Whatcom is 9-4-2 in the Northest Athletic Conference, good for second place in the North Region.

Nikiski gets at-large berth Staff report The Nikiski volleyball team will get a chance to defend their Class 3A state championship. The Alaska School Activities Association announced Sunday that the Bulldogs got the at-large berth to the state tournament, which runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage. The Bulldogs finished 9-1 in the Southcentral Conference this season to earn the top seed at the conference tournament out of the Southern Division. Homer knocked off Nikiski in the semifinals, meaning the Bulldogs could only make state by getting the one at-large berth. ASAA takes into account six performance metrics when deciding who gets the at-large

berth. Homer went on to win the conference tournament, earning the top seed out of the Southcentral Conference. The Mariners open the tourney Thursday at 3:15 p.m. against Kotzebue, No. 2 from the Western Conference. Kenai Central earned the No. 2 seed from the Southcentral Conference and will play Barrow, No. 1 from the Western Conference, at 10 a.m. Thursday. The Bulldogs face Monroe Catholic, No. 1 from the Aurora Conference, at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Soldotna also earned a berth to the Class 4A tournament by finishing third in the Northern Lights Conference. The Stars draw Dimond, the top seed from the Cook Inlet Conference, at 3:15 p.m. Thursday.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Jason Myers kicked a 42-yard field goal after Chase McLaughlin missed a kick earlier in overtime, and the Seattle Seahawks handed the San Francisco 49ers their first loss of the season with a 27-24 victory on Monday night. Myers gave Seattle (8-2) its second straight overtime win after Russell Wilson got the Seahawks into position with an 18-yard scramble on third-and-3. After being iced by a timeout, Myers delivered one week after missing two field goals and an extra point, putting Seattle right in the thick of the NFC West race with San Francisco (8-1). The Seahawks blew a chance to win the game on the opening possession of overtime when Wilson was intercepted at the 4 by Dre Greenlaw. It was Wilson’s second interception of the season and just the second red-zone interception in overtime in the last 25 years, according to STATS, with Jacoby Brissett having the other in 2017 against San Francisco. Greenlaw returned it 47 yards to the Seattle 49 and the Niners moved the ball 20 yards before McLaughlin missed badly to the left on a 47-yard attempt. McLaughlin had made his first three field goals after being signed earlier in the week when Robbie Gould went down with a quadriceps injury.

The teams then traded punts, the Seahawks took over at their 36 with 1:25 remaining and drove for the winning score. After the defenses dominated much of the game with each team scoring a defensive touchdown and generating three takeaways apiece, the quarterbacks traded late drives for field goals that set the stage for overtime. Wilson drove the Seahawks 47 yards before Chris Carson was stuffed on thirdand-1, leading to a 46-yard field goal by Myers with 1:45 to play. Jimmy Garoppolo and the Niners took over from there and used short passes to move the ball down to the 29 where McLaughlin kicked a 47-yard field goal with 1 second left to tie it at 24. Seattle capitalized on a pair of turnovers in the third quarter to take a 21-10 lead. Garoppolo threw a pass that deflected off Kendrick Bourne’s hands to Quandre Diggs, who returned it 44 yards to the 16. Wilson scrambled down to the 3 and then lofted a TD pass to Jacob Hollister after avoiding pressure in the pocket to put Seattle up 14-10. On San Francisco’s next drive, Jadeveon Clowney beat Mike McGlinchey and knocked the ball out of Garoppolo’s hands for a fumble that was recovered by Poona Ford at the 24. Carson ran it in four plays later to make it an 11-point game. The 49ers got back into the game with

a big defensive play of their own. K’Waun Williams sacked Wilson, knocking the ball loose to right tackle Germain Ifedi. Ifedi tried to run with the ball but Fred Warner knocked it loose again and DeForest Buckner ran it in 12 yards for the score. Garoppolo then completed the 2-point conversion to Bourne, cutting the deficit to 21-18. The 49ers then tied it on McLaughlin’s second field goal of the game. The Niners scored on their first two possessions to take a 10-0 lead but Clowney then returned a fumble by Garoppolo 10 yards for a TD to get Seattle back into the game. BIG PLAY: The Seahawks were poised to take the lead into halftime when D.K. Metcalf took a short pass from Wilson and ran it inside the 5. But as he was fighting for more yardage, safety Jaquiski Tartt ripped it out of his hands at the 2-yard line for an impressive fumble recovery. DEBUT PERFORMANCES: Diggs started in his first game for Seattle since being acquired last month in a trade from Detroit. Receiver Josh Gordon also made his Seahawks debut after being claimed off waivers last week from New England. He caught a 13-yard pass to convert a third down on the late field-goal drive in the fourth quarter and another to convert a third down in overtime.

Alonso, Alvarez nab Rookie of Year nods

Hamlin wins, gains final 4

NEW YORK (AP) — Young sluggers known for their prodigious power, Pete Alonso and Yordan Álvarez knocked the Rookie of the Year voting out of the park. In a rarity for the major league home run leader, Alonso didn’t land the biggest blow. Alonso, a star first baseman with the New York Mets, got 29 of 30 first-place votes for NL Rookie of the Year. Braves right-hander Mike Soroka got the other first-place vote and finished second in balloting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America revealed Monday night. “To just win the award, doesn’t matter if it’s unanimous or not,” Alonso said. “It’s still such a blessing.” Álvarez, a hulking designated hitter from the Houston Astros, earned all 30 first-place votes to become the 24th unanimous selection since the award was introduced in 1949. “I was really not expecting it,” Álvarez said through a translator. The 24-year-old Alonso led the majors with 53

By The Associated Press AVONDALE, Ariz. — Denny Hamlin adamantly insisted ‘it’s not over” after a critical mistake last week put the Daytona 500 winner on the verge of elimination from NASCAR’s championship race. He remained undeterred, confident in his chances to win Sunday at ISM Raceway and save his season with a victory that would give him an automatic berth into the final four. He called his shot and delivered. Hamlin snagged his first spot in the championship field since 2014 with his win, a victory that eliminated NASCAR champion Joey Logano from the playoffs and gave Joe Gibbs Racing and Toyota three of the slots in next week’s decider at Homestead-Miami Speedway. “I try not to put too much

homers, one better than Yankees slugger Aaron Judge’s rookie record from 2017. “Polar Bear” Pete became the face of baseball in Flushing, beloved for his power, personality and philanthropy. He’s the sixth Met to win the award and first since teammate Jacob deGrom in 2014. Pa d r e s shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. was third in NL balloting. The only voter to place Soroka ahead of Alonso was Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic. Alonso was the only NL player named on every ballot. Álvarez, a 22-year-old from Cuba, played 87 games after debuting in June, fewest by any position player to win AL Rookie of the Year. He hit 27 homers, batted .313, drove in 78 and had a 1.067 OPS for the pennant-winning Astros. He struggled at times in the postseason, but that was after voting had concluded. “My whole family was telling me I would be the winner of the award,” Álvarez said. “And once I was selected as the winner, I was very excited.”

Busch passed Blaney to put a buffer between the two. Hamlin then cruised to his sixth win of the season and punched the air with his fist in his car as he crossed the finish line. He jumped into the arms of his waiting crew, which he had promised earlier Sunday to give his all in an effort to make the championship field at Homestead-Miami Speedway. “This race team worked so hard this whole year. They deserve to be there,” Hamlin said of his No. 11 crew. “I put them in a bad hole last week. I told them today in the meeting, I said, ‘I’m going to give everything I’ve got to make up for the mistake I made last week.’ That’s all I got.” Hamlin will race Gibbs teammates Busch and Martin Truex Jr., as well as Kevin Harvick of StewartHaas Racing, for the championship. Gibbs, winner of 18

races this season, and Toyota have three of the slots in the final four. “I feel like we are all here because we worked together,” said Truex. Chevrolet will not be represented for the third consecutive season and Harvick races a Ford. Hamlin’s win sealed the manufacturer championship for Toyota. Truex won the 2018 title, Busch won in 2015 and Harvick in 2014. All three raced for the championship last season against Logano, who won the finale to snag the title away from the three drivers who dominated the season. This year the final four is equally deserving of their spots in the finale — the champion has had to win the race at Homestead to claim the title every year since the elimination format debuted in 2014.

Celtics, Walker outlast Mavericks By The Associated Press BOSTON — Kemba Walker made a trio of key 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with 29 points, Jaylen Brown added 25 points and 11 rebounds, and Boston beat the Dallas Mavericks 116-106 Monday night in the Celtics’ first game since Gordon Hayward had surgery on his broken left hand. Marcus Smart scored 17 points, Daniel Theis chipped in with 11 and Brad Wanamaker had 10 for Boston, which won its eighth straight game since a season-opening loss at Philadelphia.

Coyotes nip Caps By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Conor Garland scored the shootout winner minutes after an apparent Capitals overtime goal was waved off by video review, and the Arizona Coyotes responded from blowing a big lead to beat Washington 4-3 Monday night. The NHL-leading Capitals’ winning streak was snapped at six. The Coyotes ended their own three-game skid.

into it,” Hamlin said. “There’s still work to be done. Doesn’t guarantee a championship. Gives us a chance. Live to fight another day. That’s all you can ask for.” Hamlin, one of the favorites to win the title, faced elimination after spinning last week at Texas but took control and had the win essentially in the bag until a caution with nine laps remaining set up a final restart. Hamlin, who had been terrible on restarts the entire race, punched his steering wheel in anger when the yellow flag waved. His Joe Gibbs Racing team made an unusual call to take just two tires — the same strategy as contender Ryan Blaney — and the two lined up next to each other for the restart with three laps to go. Hamlin finally got a decent restart, pulled into the lead, and Gibbs teammate Kyle

HURRICANES 8, SENATORS 2 RALEIGH, N.C. — Sebastian Aho scored twice, Joel Edmundson had a goal and two assists, and Carolina beat Ottawa to snap a fourgame losing streak. Warren Foegele, Ryan Dzingel and Martin Necas each had a goal and an assist, and Haydn Fleury and Dougie Hamilton also scored to help the Hurricanes win.

LOS ANGELES — Lou Williams scored 21 points, Kawhi Leonard just missed a triple-double in his first game against his former team and Los Angeles beat the defending NBA champion Toronto Raptors. Leonard finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists to go with nine turnovers. Last season, he led the Raptors to their first championship, averaging 30.5 points and 9.1 rebounds in 24 postseason games to earn his second Finals MVP honor.

JAZZ 122, WARRIORS 108 SAN FRANCISCO — Rudy Gobert had 25 points and 14 rebounds as Utah topped

assists and nine rebounds for the Pelicans, who played without leading scorer Brandon Ingram due to a sore right knee.



NEW ORLEANS — James Harden scored 39 points, including 13 straight in the fourth quarter, and Houston beat short-handed New Orleans. Russell Westbrook had 26 points and Clint Capela added 11 points and 20 rebounds to help the Rockets to their fourth straight win. JJ Redick had 24 points, Josh Hart scored 19, and Jrue Holiday added 18 points, 11

SAN ANTONIO — Jaren Jackson Jr. had 24 points and Memphis put a damper on Tony Parker’s jersey retirement by beating San Antonio.

TIMBERWOLVES 120, PISTONS 114 DETROIT — Andrew Wiggins scored 33 points and Minnesota spoiled Blake Griffin’s return from injury, beating Detroit.

Crossword | Eugene Sheffer

DEAR JANE DOE: Buy your partner a pair of suspenders and insist that he wear them when he's out in public with you. (It should lessen his need to put his hand down his pants, a habit that should have been "discouraged" before he entered kindergarten.)

DEAR DO WE OR DON'T WE: You and your wife are both adults. How you choose to raise your child should not be dictated by anyone but yourselves. If you choose not to baptize your offspring in the Catholic religion, then "to thine own selves be true." If your child later decides to adopt a Christian religion, he or she can be baptized then.

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I are expecting. We were both raised Catholic, but neither of us feels any affinity for the church or its teachings anymore. We had a Catholic wedding more for others (primarily family) than for ourselves. The question is, do we have our baby baptized? Neither of us really wants to, but we're afraid of the reaction from our families. We would just go along with it, but if we do, it means getting involved with a religious group we care little for, and worse, lying about it. What do we do? — DO WE OR DON'T WE

Tech Tuesday

Dear Heloise: I'm interested in BUILDING MY CREDIT SCORE. What's a good first step? — Conner T., age 18, Traverse City, Mich. Conner, kudos to you for looking toward the future. A good credit score can help you rent an apartment, get a mortgage or obtain an auto loan. A potential employer may check your credit, too. A good first step is a secured credit card. What is the card secured by? A cash deposit you make — usually at least a couple hundred dollars. You charge products and services on the card and make regular payments. This type of credit card is to show you can handle the responsibility of a credit card and is meant to be used temporarily. If you don't pay the entire amount in full each month, an interest charge is added. When you pay off and close your secured credit card, you'll get your cash deposit back. Ask your neighborhood bank or credit union for more information. — Heloise

personality draws strong reactions, some good and others not as positive. Tonight: Work with a changing perspective.

Stress and kids Dear Readers: If your child or grandchild says, "My stomach hurts," it may not be a stomachache at all. It may be anxiety. Kids are under tremendous stress these days: grades, peers, afterschool activities, online postings, etc. Kids are overwhelmed with a lot of information and, maybe, not a lot of wisdom. Restlessness, agitation, biting themselves, avoidance of people, meltdowns and constant stomach issues -- these might be signs that a therapist should be called. — ­ Heloise P.S. Don't discount meditation and yoga. These activities can help as well.

Superior court lawsuit filed over Homer city election By Megan Pacer Homer News

A former Homer City Council member has filed a lawsuit in Alaska Superior Court contesting the results of the last city election. Tom Stroozas filed an election contest in Anchorage Superior Court against the city of Homer and the city council on Thursday, according to online court records. The civil suit asks the court to find that Storm Hansen-Cavasos, a new member of the council who was elected on Oct. 1, was not qualified to run because she did not live within Homer city limits for a full year before the election. Stroozas previously filed an election contest with the city over this issue. The city conducted an investigation into Hansen-Cavasos’ residency and, after reviewing the results of that investigation, the city council found

she did meet residency requirements and voted to affirm Hansen-Cavasos’ election to the council. She did not participate in that discussion or vote. The superior court complaint asks the court to find Hansen-Cavasos was not qualified to run for city council and that her election be disregarded, or invalidated. The complaint also asks for an injunction to keep Hansen-Cavasos from sitting on the council, voting or participating in council work while the case is open. Additionally, Stroozas’ complaint asks for the court to direct the city to certify former council member Shelly Erickson as having been elected, as she had the next highest number of votes and “would have been elected to the Council but for Hansen-Cavasos’ unlawfully running as a candidate,” according to the complaint. Thomas Amodio and

Jimmy Carter hospitalized Associated Press

ATLANTA — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was admitted to a hospital on Monday evening for a surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, caused by bleeding due to his recent falls, his spokeswoman said. The procedure is scheduled for Tuesday morning at Emory University Hospital, Deanna Congileo said in a statement. Carter has fallen at least three times this year, and the first incident in the spring required hip replacement surgery. He traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, and helped build a Habitat for Humanity home after getting 14 stiches following a fall on Oct. 6. And he was briefly hospitalized

after fracturing his pelvis on Oct. 21. He received a dire cancer diagnosis in 2015 but survived and has since said he is cancer-free. Nearly four decades after he left office and despite a body that’s failing after 95 years, the nation’s oldestever ex-president still teaches Sunday school roughly twice a month at Maranatha Baptist Church in his tiny hometown of Plains in southwest Georgia. His message is unfailingly about Jesus, not himself. Rev. Tony Lowden, Carter’s pastor, said the ex-president was hospitalized Monday on what he called “a rough day.” “We just need the whole country to be in prayer for him,” Lowden said in a telephone interview.

Keri-Ann Calderwood Baker are representing Stroozas from the Anchorage law firm Reeves Amodio LLC. Amodio said there are several different things that will come into play with the case. He said case law regarding residency for voting is pretty clear. State law quoted in the complaint, for example, states that the “address of a voter as it appears on the official voter registration record is presumptive of the person’s voting residence.” Hansen-Cavasos changed her voting registration address in August 2019 when she registered as a candidate. It was an address within the city limits. City code states that a candidate must have lived within city limits for a full year before an election, but that a candidate only has to update their voter registration address within 30 days on an election, which she did.

During the investigation into the election, HansenCavaos stated in a sworn affidavit that she moved into city limits with her mother on Mission Road in the summer of 2018, more than a year before the election. The address Hansen-Cavasos listed on her voter registration is also within city limits but is on Rangeview Drive. Stroozas and others provided screenshots of texts and social media during the election investigation they claimed proved Hansen-Cavasos was living at a residence outside of Homer on East End Road well within a year of the election. Hansen-Cavasos countered that she and her children would often stay at the home on East End Road that she had leased with her husband while they were in the process of separating and going through their

belongings, but that her and her children’s main and permanent residence was in town with her mother. She has said she and her husband continued paying for the rental outside of city limits because they were not sure if he would need a place to stay when he returned from working out of state. The council voted 4-1 to maintain Hansen-Cavasos’ election. Homer City Code allows a candidate, in this case Stroozas, to seek judicial review of an election certification within 10 days of a council decision to uphold that certification after an election contest. T h e Ho m e r Ne w s reached out to Stroozas for comment, and local area resident Cassie Lawver responded and sent a press release about the lawsuit. Lawver and other concerned neighbors who live outside the city

originally started gathering information to contest the election after Oct. 1. Stroozas filed the election contest on their behalf when it came to his attention. “Ms. Cavasos can’t provide a straight answer on why, if she lived in the City like she claims, she has filed multiple documents with the State of Alaska and other government entities listing a false address,” Stroozas is quoted as saying in the press release. “And it’s not like this was a one-time offense. Quite simply, she is either filing multiple false documents with the government under risk of criminal penalty or she is lying to the voters – and she needs to answer for that.” Stroozas later responded to the Homer News and deferred comments to his legal counsel.

U.S. officials objected to stopping Ukraine aid By Lisa Mascaro and Mary Clare Jalonick Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The view among the national security officials was unanimous: Military aid to Ukraine should not be stopped. But President Donald Trump’s acting chief of staff thought otherwise. As the aid was being blocked this summer, Ukraine officials began quietly asking the State Department about the hold-up. The concern was clear for the young democracy battling an aggressive Russia. “If this were public in Ukraine it would be seen as a reversal of our policy,” said Catherine Croft, the special adviser for Ukraine at State, who fielded the inquiries

from the Ukrainians. “This would be a really big deal,” she testified. “It would be a really big deal in Ukraine, and an expression of declining U.S. support for Ukraine.” Croft’s remarks were among the transcripts released Monday from the House impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump. And they begin to chisel away at a key Republican defense of Trump. Allies of the president say Trump did nothing wrong because the Ukrainians never knew the aid was being delayed. Eventually, the White House released its hold and the funds were sent to the ally. The impeachment inquiry is looking at whether Trump violated his oath of office by holding back the congressionally approved funds while

he asked the new Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy for a favor— to investigate political rival Joe Biden’s family and the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Transcripts of testimony from closed-door interviews with Croft and another Ukraine specialist at State, Christoper Anderson, as well as the Defense Department’s Laura Cooper, come as House Democrats are pushing ahead to this week’s live public hearings. Cooper told investigators that, in a series of July meetings at the White House, she came to understand that Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, was holding up the military aid for the U.S. ally. “There was just this issue of the White House chief of

staff has conveyed that the president has concerns about Ukraine,” she said. When she and others tried to get an explanation, they found none. “We did not get clarification,” she said. “My sense is that all of the senior leaders of the U.S. national security departments and agencies were all unified in their — in their view that this assistance was essential,” said Cooper, an assistant defense secretary. “And they were trying to find ways to engage the President on this.” Croft and Anderson testified about the oversized reach of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani into foreign policy on Ukraine in unsettling ways as he portrayed Zelenskiy’s new government as an “enemy” of Trump.

Pacific bird refuge struggles as ocean garbage patch grows By Caleb Jones Associated Press

MIDWAY ATOLL, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands — Flying into the uninhabited Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, Midway Atoll appears out of the vast blue Pacific as a tiny oasis of coral-fringed land with pristine white sand beaches that are teeming with life. But on the ground, there’s a different scene: plastic, pollution and death. With virtually no predators, Midway is a haven for many species of seabirds and is home to the

largest colony of albatross in the world. But Midway is also at the center of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a vast area of floating plastic collected by circulating oceanic currents. The Hawaiian Islands act like a comb that gathers debris as it floats across the Pacific. A recent analysis found that the patch is accumulating debris at a faster rate than scientists previously thought. Midway is littered with bird skeletons that have brightly colored plastic protruding from their decomposing bellies. Bottle caps,

toothbrushes and cigarette lighters sit in the centers of their feathery carcasses. “There isn’t a bird that doesn’t have some (plastic),” said Athline Clark, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s superintendent for Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, which Midway is part of. They “fill their bellies up with plastics instead of food and eventually either choke or just don’t have enough room for actual nourishment and perish.” Sharp plastic pieces can also perforate their intestines

and esophagus. Papahanaumokuakea, which quadrupled in size under President Barack Obama in 2016, is the world’s largest marine conservation area and was inscribed in 2010 as a UNESCO mixed World Heritage site. “Papahanaumokuakea is both a biologically rich and culturally sacred place,” Clark said. “The Hawaiians call it a place of abundance, or aina momona.” But circulating currents now bring an abundance of plastic and other trash from all around the Pacific Rim to Hawaii’s beaches.

The debris ranges from tiny microplastics that nearly every animal in this marine ecosystem ingests to huge fishing nets that gather plants, animals and other debris while bulldozing across fragile coral reefs. It’s not just the seabirds that are harmed by ocean plastic. Endangered Hawaiian monk seals and green sea turtles can die while entangled in plastic nets. Sharks and other apex predators eat smaller fish that feed on microplastic. Whales drag fishing line and buoys behind them during their long migrations across the world’s oceans.
