Meanwhile … The Department of Homeland Security ordered border agents to immediately begin verifying that every international student who arrives in the U.S. has a valid student visa, according to an internal memorandum obtained Friday. The new procedure is the government’s first security change directly related to the Boston bombings.

Boston Every time the widow of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev leaves her parents’ house, federal agents watching the residence follow her in unmarked vehicles. Federal authorities are placing intense pressure on what they know to be the inner circle of the two bombing suspects, arresting three college buddies of surviving brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and keeping Tamerlan’s 24-year-old widow, Katherine Russell, in the public eye with their open surveillance and leaks to media about investigators’ focus on her. Legal experts say it’s part of their quest not just to determine whether Russell and the friends are culpable but also to push for as much information as possible regarding whether the bombing suspects had ties to a terrorism network or accomplices working domestically or abroad. Much about Tamerlan’s widow remains a mystery, including what she knew or witnessed in the weeks, months and years before the bombings, and what she saw and did in the days after. It’s unclear when Russell last communicated with her husband, but

Boston Suspect’s Body Funeral preparations for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, at left, continued Sunday at a funeral home in Worcester, Mass. Tsarnaev’s uncle Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery Village, Md., met with funeral director Peter Stefan and prepared to wash and shroud Tsarnaev’s body according to Muslim tradition. Stefan said he hasn’t been able to find a cemetery in Massachusetts willing to take the body. Tsarnaev, 26, died in a gunfight with police April 19. (AP)
her lawyer, Amato DeLuca, said last month that the last time she saw him was before she went to work April 18. DeLuca said last week that Russell had met with law enforcement “for many hours over the past week” and would continue to do so. He previously said Russell didn’t suspect her husband of anything before the bombings. Eugene O’Donnell, a John Jay College of Criminal Justice lecturer and former police ofﬁcer and assistant district attorney in New York City, said the message from federal authorities is clear: “No stone will be unturned.” “I t h i n k a f ter 9/11, t here’s really a kitchen-sink approach to nat iona l securit y,” he said.

able to make it out of the burning limo, said San Mateo County Supervising Deputy Coroner Michelle Rippy. All ﬁve were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the limo — identiﬁed as 46-year-old Orville Brown of San Jose — was the only person to escape unhurt. The California Highway Patrol could not say Sunday if Brown was the owner of the limo or if the vehicle was operated by a limo company. Investigators have not determined what sparked the ﬁre, but the highway patrol says the limo became engulfed in ﬂames after smoke started coming out of the rear of the limo. JOHN S. MARSHALL (AP)

Beirut Israel rushed to beef up its rocket defenses on its northern border Sunday to shield against possible retaliation after carrying out two airstrikes in Syria over 48 hours — an unprecedented escalation of Israeli involvement in the Syrian civil war. Syria and its patron, Iran, hinted at possible retribution, though the rhetoric in ofﬁcial statements appeared relatively muted. Despite new concerns about a regional war, Israeli ofﬁcials signaled that they will keep trying to block what they see as an effort by Iran to send sophisticated weapons to Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia ahead of a possible collapse of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. Israel has repeatedly threatened to intervene in the Syrian civil war to stop the transfer of what it calls “game-changing” weapons to Hezbollah, a Syrian-backed group that

Death Toll Tops 620 in Bangladesh Building Collapse Dhaka, Bangladesh More than 620 bodies have been recovered from the garment-factory building that collapsed in Bangladesh more than a week ago, police said Sunday, as the grim recovery work continued in one of the worst industrial accidents ever.

Meanwhile … The building in Dhaka, Bangladesh, that collapsed April 24 had not been designed to handle heavy industrial equipment, let alone the three floors that were later illegally added, an architect whose firm designed it said Sunday.

of decomposing bodies remains amid the broken concrete of the eight-story Rana Plaza building, and it is anyone’s guess how many victims remain to be recovered.

battled Israel. Since carr ying out an airstrike in January that reportedly destroyed a shipment of anti-aircraft missiles headed to Hezbollah, Israel had largely stayed on the sidelines. That changed over the weekend with a pair of airstrikes, including an attack near a military complex close to the Syrian capital of Damascus early Sunday. The Israeli government and military refused to comment. But a senior Israeli ofﬁcial said both airstrikes targeted shipments of Fateh110 missiles bound for Hezbollah. Syria’s government called the attacks a “f lagrant violation of international law” that has made the Middle East “more dangerous.” Syria’s information minister, Omran al-Zoubi, read a Cabinet statement saying that Syria has the right and duty “to defend its people by all available means.” Israeli ofﬁcials believe Assad has little desire to open a new front with Israel when he is preoccupied with the survival of his regime. Still, Israel seemed to be taking the Syrian threats seriously. JOSEF FEDERMAN AND K ARIN L AUB (AP)

Where Innovation is Tradition
In Pakistan, a Female-Voter Debate Mateela, Pakistan For decades, not one woman in this dusty Pakistani village has voted. And they aren’t likely to in this week’s election either. The village’s men have spoken. “It’s the will of my husband,” Fatma Shamshed said. “This is the decision of all the families.” Mateela is one of 564 out of the 64,000 polling districts across Pakistan where not a single woman voted in the country’s 2008 election. The men from this village of roughly 9,000 people got together with other nearby communities to decide that their women would not vote Saturday. Yar Mohammed, a village elder,
Backstory Women represent about 43 percent of the roughly 86 million registered voters in Pakistan, according to official data. In more conservative areas, the percentage drops. But there are encouraging signs, with more women competing in the elections. Sixty of the 342 seats in the lower house of parliament are reserved for women. (AP)
said the problem is that the local polling station is mixed gender. “Men would tease them,” he said. Saturday’s parliamentary election will bring a major first for democracy in Pakistan — the ﬁrst
time a civilian government has fulﬁlled its term and handed over power to another. But women still face an uphill battle to be heard in the political process. And Mateela’s women certainly want a political voice. One resident said the women in his family say, “ ‘We want to vote.’ But we tell them that it is a collective decision.” Activists also are trying to nurture the change, and some even met with residents in Mateela recently. The men there say they are willing to let women vote if the election commission sets up a separate polling station. But the commission said that isn’t possible because the voting lists had already been ﬁnalized. REBECCA SANTANA (AP)

sary, says Dr. Liz Hanson, a veterinarian at Corona Del Mar Animal Hospital in Newport Beach, Calif. “If you have a healthy dog with no medical condition, there is no reason not to pick up a brand-name dog food from Walmart or Costco,”
Hanson says. Those big retail stores, including Target and PetSmart, tend to have better prices. Deals can also be found online, but beware of shipping costs. Here are four ways to cut down your pet-food budget:
Pet-food makers and online stores often post coupons on social media sites and their websites. So follow your pet’s favorite brand on Twitter and like it on Facebook. Also check your weekly newspaper circulars.
Get Automated Set up a subscription online to get your pet food delivered regularly. Amazon.com, Petfooddirect.com and Dog.com all offer discounts.

Make Your Own Whipping up a freshly cooked meal for your pet can offer up some savings, especially if the pet has an allergy or other medical condition. But before switching to a cooked diet, consult with a veterinarian or pet nutritionist to make sure your pet is getting all the nutrients it needs, says Patti Howard, a pet nutrition specialist at The Pawsitive Packleader.

D.C.’s streetcars may be a novelty at first, but city has big plans Washington
When the D.C. streetcars start carrying passengers, don’t look for them to be an immediate hit as people-movers. At ﬁrst, they will operate more like a Disneyland ride than a transit system. And that’s OK, as long as this initial service lays the foundation for the system. Right now, there’s not a huge unmet need to move people between Union Station and Oklahoma Avenue. Metrobus X2 links the McPherson Square and Gallery Place Metro stations, Union Station and the Minnesota Avenue Metro station. The
H Street/Benning Road corridor is just a segment of its route. The X9 MetroExtra, a limited-stop service, links the Capitol Heights Metro station with Metro Center via the H Street/Benning Road corridor. So why does this puny streetcar thing make any sense? If the streetcar line were allowed to exist in isolation, it would be no more than a 2-mile toy. But the Metrobus routes can be adjusted as necessary. The District, as a partner in the transit authority, has a lot to say about routing within the District. As for the streetcars’ destinations, the District has announced a very ambitious long-term goal for a 37-mile citywide network of lines. A proposed Benning Road extension would cross the Anacostia River to connect with Metrorail. The District also has proposed an extension west from Union Station to the Georgetown waterfront. But the streetcar project isn’t just
about moving people. It’s also about neighborhood buzz and identity. Mayor Vincent Gray addressed this Wednesday as he stood in front of a streetcar delivered to an Anacostia yard for testing.
The number of passengers each streetcar is built to carry. They are 8 feet wide, or a bit narrower than local buses.
Asked why people would decide to take the streetcar, he said, “Certainly in the beginning, there will be the novelty of it.” This is exactly right, and it’s important.

Woman, 73, Pulled From Tracks by Metro Riders 600 Maryland Avenue, SW • Washington, DC 20024 L’Enfant Plaza Metro EXP-050613-CHS
Washington A 73-year-old woman who fell onto Metro tracks Saturday was pulled back onto the platform by fellow riders, the transit authority said. The incident happened at the
Dupont Circle station shortly before 2:30 p.m., Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said. It is not clear how the woman fell onto the outbound tracks, he said, but she was helped to safety by bystanders. The woman, who was not iden-
tiﬁed, was taken to George Washington University Hospital with a non-life-threatening head injury. Stessel said there was no train in the immediate area when the woman fell, and the incident had no impact on Red Line service. MIKE DEBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Poll: McDonnell Popular With Va. Voters 64 percent say they approve of the job governor is doing
“He realized he had a bunch of his ideas that he wouldn’t get through unless he agreed to compromise.”
PLAN. “I’VE BEEN RATHER IMPRESSED BY HIM, UP UNTIL THE PAST FEW WEEKS,” HE ADDED.
In the last year of his four-year term, Gov. Bob McDonnell remains firmly popular with Virginia voters, getting high marks on how he is handling his duties as governor and his personal ethics, according to a new Washington Post poll. Overall, 64 percent of all registered voters in the commonwealth say they approve of the job McDonnell is doing, up 6 percentage points from two Post surveys last year.
Meanwhile … Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has an early 46 to 41 percent lead over businessman Terry McAuliffe in their race for governor, a new Washington Post poll shows. Among those who say they’re certain to cast ballots in November, Cuccinelli has a 51 to 41 percent lead. However, barely 10 percent say they are following the campaign “very closely,” and nearly half of the electorate say they’re either undecided or could change their minds. (T WP)

His approval rating is as high as it has been in periodic Post polls over his tenure. The positive ratings cut across the political spectrum, with the biggest improvement coming among Democratic voters. Fifty-two percent of them say McDonnell is doing a good job, compared with 38 percent last September. There is also generally crossparty agreement that McDonnell
has “high personal moral and ethical standards.” Fully 59 percent of all Virginians say so; just 16 percent say he does not; and 25 percent are unsure. The latest poll numbers come soon after McDonnell, who is termlimited, claimed a major legislative victory with the passage of a landmark transportation plan expected to raise $1.4 billion a year for road projects over ﬁve years and

Behold the Bivalve, Nature’s Janitor Study: Oyster reefs greatly improved river’s water quality
“He was reﬁned, very intellectual and geekish. He was someone you might meet at a renaissance fair discussing world civilizations.”
as the FBI raises questions about his relationship with donor and Star Scientiﬁc chief executive Jonnie Williams Sr. McDonnell, often mentioned as a potential national candidate, has been caught in a media storm over his relationship with Williams, who paid a $15,000 catering tab for the 2011 wedding of one of the governor’s daughters. McDonnell has said that he did not disclose the gift because it was not made directly to him but to his daughter. Under Virginia law, elected ofﬁcials are not required to report gifts to members of their family.
A reef in the Choptank River seeded with oysters by the state of Maryland — about 130 oysters per square meter — removed 20 times more nitrogen pollution in one year than a nearby site that had not been seeded, according to a recently released study. The upshot, said Lisa Kellogg, a researcher for the Virginia Institute of Marine Science who led the four-year study, is that oyster reefs could potentially remove nearly half of nitrogen pollution from that river in eastern Maryland “if you took all the areas suitable for restoration and restored them.” A wider restoration could help clean the Chesapeake Bay, where the Choptank and other major rivers drain. Man-made nitrogen pollution is part of a one-two punch that cre-
ates oxygen-depleted dead zones that have bedeviled the bay. At one time, when oyster reefs were so plentiful the European explorers complained about navigating around them, the Chesapeake was crystal clear. Excessive oyster ﬁshing, combined with massive farm and urban pollution, depleted oysters, denuded reefs and clouded the water by the 1980s. About that time, two diseases, Dermo and MSX, came out of nowhere to decimate the stock in Maryland and Virginia. Oysters in those two states are experiencing a modest recovery because of the restoration and farming known as aquaculture. Kellogg and her fellow researchers wanted to show that oyster reefs could greatly improve water quality and are worth the millions of dollars being invested in their restoration. Nitrogen removal “is just one of the ecosystem services that oysters provide,” she said. “It’s clear that they were doing far more than we even know now. It’s a huge loss.” DARRYL FEARS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Arlington Cemetery Plans Major Expansion Arlington Arlington National Cemetery leaders are working on what could be one of the largest expansions in decades, warning that the nation’s military burial ground will run out of new grave sites within a dozen years without more burial space. The plans are part of a whirlwind of improvements put in place since investigators revealed widespread problems several years ago. Workers just ﬁnished construction on a structure that can hold tens of thousands of cremated remains, and officials will soon design a 38-acre addition around the Air Force Memorial. But one project — which ofﬁcials say would add more than 27,000 much-needed interment sites — has sparked opposition. Critics say the Millennium Project, as the 27-acre expansion is called, doesn’t ﬁt the historic site, would damage a stream and raze hundreds of trees in place since the Civil War. Some ask whether it would make more sense to begin planning for the day when the cemetery will be full. “I love Arlington,” said Rep. Jim Cooper, D-Tenn. “But it’s not big enough for all future wars. It seems like we need to be prepa r i ng for A rl i ng ton Two.” SUSAN SVRLUGA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Budget cuts hit D.C. hot spots, fueling fear of lasting damage to the tourism industry

Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence — has slashed evening hours.
Tuesday through Thursday starting May 13, and it will charge rental fees.
The Smithsonian closed three exhibits, in the Na- Carter Barron, Rock Creek Park and tional Museum of African Art, the Smithsonian Castle and Fort Dupont are scaling back summer concerts and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
The Mall, Washington’s oft-trampled symbol of democracy and its most-visited national park, heads into the summer tourist season with no Fourth of July concert, fewer Park Police officers and a whole lot of uncollected trash — all results of the spending cuts coursing through parks, museums and other cultural destinations that people come to see in the capital. The cuts may not be drastic, but they’re troubling to tourists, advocates for the arts and other critics of the budget impasse in Congress that put the across-the-board reductions known as sequestration in place two months ago. “The leisure traveler is a very emotional traveler,” said John Stachnik, president of Mayﬂower Tours, which books trips to the D.C. area. “They’re skittish.” Potential visitors are expressing reservations about visiting Washington this summer, he said. “If an exhibit in the Smithsonian is closing, the only thing they remember is: The Smithsonian is closing.” In the grand scheme of things, these are nicks rather than gouges. As Smithsonian spokeswoman Linda St. Thomas put it, we are still talking about free, world-class museums. “Three rooms inside the 16 Smithsonian museums will be closed,” she said. “Millions of objects will still be available to see.” But others say the closings have a symbolism that goes deeper than three small exhibits. “You have to wonder, what is the impact when the Washington Monument is closed and the bathrooms are kind of crummy?” asked John Garder of the Nation-

They won’t ﬁnd a regional communications ofﬁce there, either: Its six fulltime staff now stands at one, a ﬁre information ofﬁcer. Ten percent of the Mall’s maintenance staff jobs are vacant and won’t be ﬁlled anytime soon, Mall ofﬁcials said, which means a hit to
“If you’re in Washington all the time, you can lose perspective on how important it is for someone from Arizona, for example, to have the experience of seeing the museums here. You can easily be seduced into believing that everyone has the same access to the museums and exhibits here.” — JIM BRE W ER , 45, OF PHOENIX, ON A RECENT VISIT TO THE DISTRICT — HIS FIRST SINCE HE WAS 11. HE SAID THAT IT WAS REASONABLE TO FIND LESSER-VISITED ROOMS IN THE SMITHSONIAN CLOSED, BUT HE CALLED THE BUDGET CUTS “ASININE.”
Despite the fact that it’s punctuated by an earthquake-damaged, scaffolding-clad Washington Monument, the Mall has been relatively lucky: Its overseers were able to compensate for the $1.6 million in cuts to its $33 million budget by curtailing hiring and travel expenses. The Fourth of July fireworks will go forward. But the budget cuts forced the park to cancel the annual concert by the Washington Monument, saving $200,000. Mall officials also are proposing to scale back the popular nighttime tours, officials said. (T WP)
trash collection, especially after events such as the July 4 ﬁreworks. And it’s not just stafﬁng shortages: The park is drastically reducing overtime to make its budget cuts. The service industry, too, has experienced changes because of the sequester — hotels, in particular, are changing gears to make up for the loss of government business as agencies cut travel expenses and conventions. The industry’s strategy for survival is focusing almost exclusively on the leisure market. Tourism officials are heavily promoting the city’s nonfederal attractions, including restaurants, architecture and sporting events. Kate Gibbs of Destination D.C., the city’s convention and visitors bureau, takes a glass-half-full approach. If you can’t go to the National Arboretum, she said, go to Rock Creek Park or the National Zoo. “Or see the gardens at Hillwood.” LISA REIN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Kevin Durant scored 35 points and hit a pair of jumpers in the final minute to lift the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 93-91 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday in Game 1 of the Western Conference semiﬁnals. Derek Fisher poked the ball away from Mike Conley to spring Durant the other way, and he pulled up to make a shot with 11.1 seconds left that put Oklahoma City up 91-90. Quincy Pondexter had a chance to send the game to overtime when he was fouled attempting a 3-pointer with Memphis trailing 93-90 and 1.6 seconds remaining. But he missed the ﬁrst free throw. The Grizzlies got 20 points and 10 rebounds from Marc Gasol and 18 points and 10 rebounds from Zach Randolph. Pondexter and Conley scored 13 apiece. Kevin Martin scored 25 for Oklahoma City, which trailed for much of the game but was able to avoid repeating its Game 1 loss from when these two teams met in the West semiﬁnals two years ago. The Thunder were able to rally and win that series in seven.

Bacarri Rambo was drafted in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins after a solid career at Georgia that suggested he would be selected much earlier. A couple of suspensions during his career with the Bulldogs, at least one reportedly for a failed drug test, likely caused the safety’s stock to drop. “All that’s behind me,” Rambo said Sunday when the Redskins concluded their three-day rookie minicamp. “I’ve moved on from that. It helped me grow [into] the person I am today. I’m just a regular, cool guy. I feel like I built my trust up. I know I still got things I need to improve on just to show them, ‘Hey he’s not that guy.

Studios bank on sneak peeks, apps and special events to stoke interest in summer movies
“Elysium” director Neill Blomkamp and star Matt Damon took part in a special event for the film held simultaneously in theaters in Los Angeles and Berlin.
Film Sometimes you just can’t wait for Comic-Con — whether you’re a fan or a filmmaker. With the summer movie season now beginning in early May, studios are co-opting the July pop-culture convention’s model of building interest in anticipated ﬁlms by bringing sneak peeks of new material directly to super-fans, who then, it is hoped, spread their enthusiasm via word of mouth and social media. For “Star Trek Into Darkness,” which opens May 17, Paramount shared early photos and videos with Trekkies devoted enough to download an iPhone or Android app. Other aspiring blockbusters, including Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” and Sony’s “Elysium,” were subjects of their own individual Comic-Con-style events

recently: Studios invited fans to local theaters, where they heard directly from the ﬁlms’ stars and were the ﬁrst to see the action-packed trailers and other select scenes. Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer took questions from fans at “The Lone Ranger” event at CinemaCon in Las Vegas in a segment streamed live online. Matt Damon and “District 9” writer-director Neill Blomkamp participated in the “Elysium” showcase,
held simultaneously in theaters in Los Angeles and Berlin. Only die-hard fans ﬁnd out about such special events. St udios va lue t he approach because it allows them to reward devoted fans while building early buzz for their ﬁlms. It also circumvents, in a way, the more traditional method of staging promotional events for entertainment media and then depending on those outlets to spread the news to fans.
There are no better ambassadors to get word of mouth going,” says Marc Weinstock, Sony’s co-president of worldwide marketing. “Movies are such a viral thing.” Asad Ayaz, senior vice president of marketing for Disney, says one aim of the “Lone Ranger” Las Vegas event last month was to generate as much international interest as possible in the ﬁlm’s trailer, which made its public debut there. Fans from as far away as China submitted questions for Depp, Hammer, director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer via Twitter during the online broadcast. Such starry mini-screenings can help raise a ﬁlm’s social-media proﬁle in the crowded summer marketplace, Ayaz says. “When we did our event for ‘The Lone Ranger,’ ‘Lone Ranger’ was trending on Twitter worldwide and in the U.S. for several hours during and after the event, and that’s because of fans tweeting,” he says. “It’s all about getting eyeballs on our trailer … so the social-media aspect just makes it. It’s a giant halo and it spreads the word.” SANDY COHEN (AP)
A Real Sharpshooter: Steven Spielberg has his sights set on his next project, a movie about former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. DreamWorks Studios says the filmmaker will direct Bradley Cooper in an adaptation of the best-selling book “American Sniper.” Jason Hall wrote the script based on the autobiography of Kyle, who was killed along with a friend earlier this year while at a North Texas gun range. Kyle is considered to be the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history. (AP)

It’s hard for a band called Black Rebel Motorcycle Club to live up to its name without being, well, a black rebel motorcycle club. But the California group does approximate what such an organization might listen to: grungy, distorted, occasionally psychedelic garage rock. The band’s latest album, “Specter at the Feast,” is its moodiest release yet. 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW; today, 7 p.m., $25; 202-2650930, 930.com. (U Street)

Darkness on the Edges Deerhunter’s raw ‘Monomania’ came from a rough patch Music Bradford Cox says he wrote what would become the ﬁnal track of Deerhunter’s new album at a friend’s house in New York during a “very dark” time. The band’s frontman was escaping from personal turmoil in his hometown of
Atlanta, taking few items other than a borrowed leather jacket. “Punk,” that smoldering, propulsive track, was part of a burst of songwriting within the past two years that produced more than 600 demos. Those songs form the bulk of “Monomania,” the band’s ﬁfth full-length album. “Monomania,” out Tuesday, is a collage of elements familiar to Deerhunter fans — cacophony interspersed with tunefulness, guitar tones that range from
scratchy to soothing and vocals that dissolve into distortion. While the ﬁrst half of the album challenges listeners with rawness (like on “Leather Jacket II”), side 2 features some of t he band’s jauntiest offerings yet. And despite a band news release describing the album as “nocturnal garage,” Cox says the intent wasn’t to make it sound any
different from the band’s other records, though he calls it “much more of an electric rock record” than the dreamy “Halcyon Digest.” Cox isn’t sure how the band reached that point, though. “Some of my favorites didn’t make it on the album,” he says. “Some songs that I didn’t really think were worthy did make it on the album. Some songs that we all thought were the best ones didn’t make it on the album. I don’t know how that works.” JONATHAN DREW (AP)

‘The Office’ Says Goodbye to Scranton Fans gather to salute the departing series set in the Pa. city The actors who play Pam, Jim, Dwight and other characters from the popular NBC show “The Office” bade farewell Saturday to the Pennsylvania city of Scranton, which served as the TV setting for their fictional paper company.
Steve Carell, center, surprised fans by showing up for “The Office’s” farewell party.
The NBC mockumentary about a clan of quirky cubicle-dwellers at the ﬁctional Dunder Mifﬂin Paper Co. wraps up May 16, and a crowd estimated at 10,000 attended a “Wrap Party” in Scranton. Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson and other stars rode in classic convertibles and posed for hundreds of photos as fans thronged around them. The stars later took the stage in front of the Lackawanna County Courthouse and played a concert with The Scrantones, who
Kenny Chesney opens “Life on a Rock” with the hit “Pirate Flag,” a rowdy beach-bum anthem reminiscent of his many fun-in-the-sun party songs of the past dozen years. Yet most of the album’s songs are about unplugging from the chaos of the daily grind and reﬂecting on quieter pleasures (such as the Willie Nelson duet “Coconut Tree”). It’s a bold move, considering that a new crop of country rockers are selling millions of albums modeled on Chesney’s pounding arena rock sound. But, to his credit, Chesney follows his muse and offers up an album that exposes his weathered soul. MICHAEL McCALL (AP)
performed the show’s theme song. While the comedy was shot in California, it made liberal use of props from Scranton and referenced plenty of real-life landmarks. Steve Carell wasn’t expected to make an appearance but surprised fans at a celebration later outside the city at PNC Field, home of the New York Yankees’ Triple A afﬁliate. Krasinski said afterward that he couldn’t process the fans’ reactions. “There’s nothing like people genuinely saying thank you,” he said. “I don’t think we ever realized how many people we had touched.” MICHAEL RUBINK AM (AP)

Pilot Season Right now, the broadcast networks are feverishly fashioning their fall prime-time schedules. One hundred or so pilots are being screened by execs and test audiences, with just one-third expected to become series for the 2013-14 season. Once they premiere, maybe a dozen will click with viewers. “Then how many series make it to the magic four-year mark, where they really make money? Maybe half of that,” says analyst Brad Adgate of media-buying ﬁrm Horizon Media. Extravagant? Wasteful? Maybe. Anticipating the “upfront week” of May 13 — when ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and the CW unveil their lineups for advertisers and the world — industry analysts and media writers have been handicapping each network pilot, described for them
Michael J. Fox’s NBC sitcom is the only surefire pickup for the fall TV season.
but unseen, as a familiar springtime guessing game: Which will be among the chosen few? Adgate likes the sound of “Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D.,” a comic-book adventure brought to the TV screen by Joss Whedon for ABC. He also likes Fox’s “Rake,” starring Greg
In the age of interactive TV, networks should air pilots and let viewers help decide what goes to series. Amazon thinks it knows a better way to separate the wheat from the chaff. As it jumps into ﬁrst-run video, it has placed pilots for eight comedy series and six kids’ series on its website and invited the public to watch and rate them. In the age of interactive television, maybe the networks should consider a similar policy: air its pilots and let viewers help decide what goes to series. After all, would viewers last spring have ordered up NBC’s monkey sitcom “Animal Practice?” Probably not. FR A ZIER MOORE (AP)

“This is pretty much unheard of to have what is essentially a ‘spinoff’ of a popular franchise perform to such a level, and now Marvel can lay claim to having 7 of the top 25 openings in history.” — TRAVIS HOPSON AT PUNCHDRUNK CRITICS.COM reacts to news that
“Iron Man 3” made $175 million this weekend.
“There will always be doubts about Floyd Mayweather’s greatness until he fights Orb in international waters.” — @MATTUFFORD found a way to
wrap the boxer, above left, and the Kentucky Derby winner into a joke about the weekend’s sporting events. Mayweather won a unanimous 12-round decision over Robert Guerrero in their welterweight title ﬁght Saturday.

“Are bike messengers still a thing in the United States? … With the exception of ‘Premium Rush,’ they’ve almost vanished from pop culture. When was the last time the ‘hip friend’ character on a show was a bike courier?” — MEANLOUISE.COM hasn’t
seen anyone zipping around downtown in some time, adding, “I’m not sure if I just don’t see them much anymore because my worklife is on a different schedule than corporate America or if [there] are just simply fewer of them out there.”
Research participation includes: 2 outpatient visits of six hours each, and 10-15 outpatient visits of one hour each, over 2-3 months treatment with one of 3 standard antidepressants two brain scans (PET) Research is conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD.

“In other words I was wrong I’m stupid and I’m [a jerk] but I stll collect a nice check from CNN.” — COMMENTER SPEAKINGTHETRUTH AT GAWKER.COM offers an opinion about
Howard Kurtz’s apology to Jason Collins on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” Kurtz wrote incorrectly in The Daily Beast that Collins — the NBA center who made headlines last week when he revealed he is gay in a Sports Illustrated article — failed to mention a previous engagement to a woman in his announcement. Kurtz said Sunday, “It was a mistake that I made and it was sloppy and inexcusable.”

PAR SCORE 200-210, BEST SCORE 278
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may want someone else to stand in for you today while you learn the ropes. Very soon you’ll be able to play your part with confidence. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’re likely to make a discovery today that marks the beginning of a long journey that you have been waiting a long time to make. CANCER (June 21-July 22) A certain personal issue is going to demand your attention today, and you may have to split your focus between it and your professional duties. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may have to insist that you be included in a certain endeavor today. Those in charge will eventually be very glad that you did. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may be wondering whom you can turn to for advice today — but the situation in which you find yourself will make the choice very clear.
FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Courtesy will work wonders for you; the more polite you can be, the better. Seek out alternative avenues for pursuing your goals. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may have to do things a little differently today because someone else is doing what you least expect. Your adjustments pay off.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You may have to share more information that you had planned on — but you’ll realize that honesty is the best policy.
Today: Showers around today. A few showers early tonight, then a little rain.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may find yourself waiting for another’s input with eagerness. This individual has more for you, when the time is right. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You’ll have reason to count your blessings today, even when things do not go entirely your way. It’s all a matter of perspective. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You can get a head start today and leave yourself plenty of time to enjoy activities that are more personal in nature. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may think that you have farther to go, when in fact what you are after may be well within reach already. It can be yours!
67 59 Tomorrow: Breezy tomorrow with rain. Chance of a shower tomorrow night.
