Police say a California woman intentionally slapped an officer so she would be jailed long enough to quit smoking. Etta Mae Lopez smacked Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Campoy in the face Tuesday as was exiting the jail. He detained her immediately. Lopez, 31, was sentenced Thursday to 63 days in jail.

The Lion Handing Out Cigars Should Have Tipped Them Off Zookeepers at the Haag zoo in Austria recently found out that the procedure to sterilize its male lion, Simba, didn’t work.

Baffled, keepers found Pia, one of the female lions, had given birth to four cubs. (EXPRESS)

Cleveland Three abducted women rescued from a house a decade after they disappeared said Sunday that they are happy to be home and pleaded for privacy so they can heal and reconnect with their families. An attorney for the women also said they are extremely grateful for the support of family, law enforcement and the community. Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight remained in seclusion and released their first statements since they were found May 6 after Berry escaped and called 911. Ariel Castro is suspected of imprisoning the women inside his house for nine years or more, allowing them outside only for a few moments, and raping them. A DNA test confirmed that Castro fathered a 6-year-old girl who Berry gave birth to in the house. The girl escaped the house with Berry. Castro, 52, is being held on $8 million bond. The former school bus driver was charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape. The women, now in their 20s and 30s, vanished separately between 2002 and 2004. At the time, they were 14, 16 and 20 years old.

IRS Disclosure Prompts Calls for Inquiry Washington Republicans said Sunday that the Internal Revenue Service’s heightened scrutiny of conservative political groups was “chilling” and further eroded public trust in government. Lawmakers said President Barack Obama personally should apologize for targeting tea party organizations, and they challenged the tax agency’s blaming of lowlevel workers.

“I just don’t buy that this was a couple of rogue IRS employees,” said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who spoke Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “After all, groups with ‘progressive’ in their names were not targeted similarly.” The IRS said Friday that it was sorry for what it called the “inappropriate” targeting of the conservative groups during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their taxexempt status. The agency blamed low-level employees, saying no high-

level officials were aware. A draft of a watchdog’s report obtained Saturday by the Associated Press seemingly contradicts public statements by the IRS commissioner. The draft states that senior IRS officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups as early as 2011. The Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration is expected to release the results of a nearly yearlong investigation in the next week. (AP)

Attorney Jim Wooley read statements attributed to all three women. Knight, who was the first to disappear and the last of the three released from the hospital, said, “Thank you to everyone for your support and good wishes. I am healthy, happy and safe and will reach out to family, friends and supporters in good time.” Berry added: “Thank you so much for everything you’re doing and continue to do. I am so happy to be home with my family.” And DeJesus, the youngest of the three, said: “I am so happy to be home, and I want to thank everybody for all your prayers. I just want time now to be with my family.” JOHN COYNE (AP)

Syria has rejected allegations it was behind the attacks. But Turkish authorities said Sunday they had detained nine Turkish citizens with links to the Syrian intelligence agency in connection

Creating a new transportation system is partly about engineering, financing and government approvals. And it’s partly a work of art. For a decade, project manager Michael D. Madden has guided the slow evolution of Maryland’s Purple Line from a fuzzy concept for a transit line into a set of maps so detailed they had to be stretched out across a room full of tables for public review last Tuesday. Since the state decided the 16-mile transit line across Prince George’s and Montgomery counties would be light rail and selected its route, Madden and his team have been working with groups in neighborhoods along the way to solve their concerns about the line’s impact. Madden is a man of great patience in these delicate negotiations with people looking to protect their property, their quality

of life and their families’ safety. Success in talks with neighbors, government agencies and utility companies is sometimes measured in changes of a few feet on the maps. Madden’s projec t tea m is spending May explaining the compromises reached through redesigns and why some things, such as the surface route along Wayne Avenue, have stayed the same.

Their cost-benefit analysis concluded that a 21-stop light-rail link between New Carrollton and Bethesda would mar the neighborhood without making it easier for people to move about. T he state decided in 2009 that the surface route along Wayne Avenue beat the alternatives of tunneling under Si lver Spr i ng or using other streets. T h e Tu e s d a y meeting in Silver Spring was the first of five open houses sponsored by the Maryland Transit Administration. Two more will be held this week, both from 5 to 8 p.m.: Tuesday, Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, 4301 East-West Highway, Bethesda. Wednesday, Woodridge Elementary School, 5001 Flintridge Drive, Hyattsville.

What’s Next Madden hopes the project’s final environmental impact statement will be done this summer. A favorable review by the Federal Transit Administration would put the project into its final design phase. Construction could begin in 2015, and trains could be rolling by 2020. Or not. The Purple Line still needs specific financial commitments. Meanwhile, another Maryland transit project is advancing: Baltimore’s Red Line. The cost estimate for building the Purple Line is $2.15 billion. For the Red Line, it’s $2.57 billion. The gas tax increase is supposed to raise $4.4 billion for new transportation projects over the next six years. For an idea that’s come along way, there’s still a long way to go.

Officials consider a hefty tax increase to fund city projects Manassas, Va.

The city of Manassas is poised to begin its own extreme home makeover: building a new elementary school, widening sidewalks in its historic downtown, even projects to improve drainage. The catch is paying for it. Officials in the city of 40,000 are set

to vote today on what would be the biggest real-estate tax increase in years. It would push the average residential tax bill to $3,108 — a 7.1 percent jump. The proposed hike has set off a firestorm in a community where local politics are dominated by Republicans who traditionally have been loath to boost taxes. But many say the overhaul is past due — particularly for the school system. The biggest capital expense driving the proposed increase is a $38 million project to build a

new Baldwin Elementary School to replace the original, which was constructed in 1961. Officials have debated replacing the crowded school for two decades. Mayor Harry “Hal” Parrish said the city “hunkered down” when the economy was bad over the past few years, and that real-estate tax bills have stayed essentially flat since 2009. With an improving economy, he said now’s the time for investment. Council member Marc Aveni said that many of the projects have

Clintonian Wisdom: Former president Bill Clinton advised Howard University graduates on Saturday to choose a profession they love, to help others and to persevere when life doesn’t go their way, speaking to about 2,700 graduates and their guests at the university’s 145th commencement.

Manassas Makeover Comes With a Price

merit. But he questions whether the city should move forward on all of them at one time. “This is all things everywhere for everybody,” Aveni said. “Where’s the moderation?” A majority of the six-member council has tentatively agreed to approve the increase, which would bring the tax rate to $1.39 cents per $100 of assessed value. Even with the increase, Manassas would have the lowest average residential tax bill in Northern Virginia at $3,108, according to city data.


Activists Want DC Water Jobs to Flow for Residents Washington With the District set to spend more than $2 billion over 15 years on a project to keep sewage out of local waterways, activists are pressing city officials to guarantee more jobs for city residents. DC Water’s Clean Rivers Project hasn’t posted encouraging numbers so far: D.C. residents accounted for 80 of 381 people hired for the $330 million first phase of the project, according to March figures. Hiring for other major DC Water projects follows a similar pattern: On an $81 million project to build a power plant at Blue Plains, three of 175 employees are D.C. residents. The Washington Interfaith Network, a federation of 48 churches, said that DC Water needs to do a better job of keeping money in the city that residents spend on everrising water bills. City and utility officials say they are sympathetic to WIN’s demands and that they, too, want more res-

Cover Story JAE C. HONG/AP

Western Surveillance Los Angeles is one of the megacities trying to track atmospheric emissions. Here’s how:

Sensors: A high-tech sensor, left, has stared at the Los Angeles basin from its mile-high perch on Mount Wilson for the past year. It scans more than two dozen points from the inland desert to the coast, measuring sunlight bouncing off the surface for the fingerprint of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases. Climate sniffers: In a storage room next door, commercially available instruments that typically monitor air quality double as climate sniffers.

Telescopes: In Pasadena, Calif., a refurbished vintage solar telescope on the California Institute of Technology campus captures sunlight and sends it down a shaft 60 feet below where a prism-like instrument separates out carbon dioxide molecules.

Caution in the Air Scientists deploy high-tech devices to gauge megacities’ carbon footprints Los Angeles Every time Los Angeles exhales, oddlooking gadgets anchored in the mountains above the city trace the invisible puffs of carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases that waft skyward. Halfway around the globe, similar contraptions atop the Eiffel Tower and elsewhere around Paris keep a pulse on emissions from smokestacks and automobile tailpipes. And there is talk of outfitting Sao Paulo, Brazil, with sensors that sniff the byproducts of burning fossil fuels. It’s part of a budding effort to track the carbon footprints of megacities, urban hubs with more than 10 million

people that are increasingly responsible for global warming. For years, carbon dioxide and other greenhouse pollutants have been closely monitored around the planet by stations on the ground and in space. Now, some scientists are eyeing large cities — with L.A. and Paris as guinea pigs — and aiming to observe emissions in the atmosphere as a first step toward independently verifying whether local — and often lofty — climate goals are being met. On a recent April afternoon, a brown haze — the accumulation of dust and smoke particles in the atmosphere — obscured the view of Los Angeles from atop Mount Wilson. “There are some days where we can see 150 miles way out to the Channel Islands and there are some days where we have trouble even seeing what’s down here in the foreground,” said Stanley Sander of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

A monitoring station in Hawaii recorded carbon dioxide concentrations of 400 parts per million Friday, dramatically up from the 316 parts per million recorded when the station made its first measurements in 1958. The monitor, atop the Mauna Loa volcano, offers the longest-running record of atmospheric carbon dioxide measured directly from the air. Scientists called it a dire milestone, nudging up to a level unseen in about 3 million to 5 million years — long before modern humans. (THE WASHINGTON POST )


are the mostly invisible greenhouse gases spewing from factories and freeways below. Six years ago, elected officials vowed to reduce emissions to 35 per-

cent below 1990 levels by 2030 by shifting to renewable energy and weaning the city’s dependence on out-of-state coal-fired plants, greening the twin port complex and airports and retrofitting city buildings. It’s impractical to blanket Los Angeles with instruments, so scientists rely on a handful of sensors and use computer models to work backward to determine the sources of the emissions and whether they’re increasing. They won’t be able to zero in on an offending street or a landfill, but they hope to be able to tell whether switching buses from diesel to alternative fuel has made a dent. Project manager Riley Duren of JPL said it’ll take years of monitoring to know whether L.A. is on track to reach its goal. The project has had its growing pains: In Paris, a carbon sniffer tucked in the Eiffel Tower’s observation deck was moved higher up after tourists’ exhaling interfered with the data. Scientists hope to strengthen their measurements with upcoming launches of satellites designed to track carbon dioxide from orbit. And the field experiment does not yet extend to China, by far the world’s biggest carbon dioxide polluter. But it’s a start, experts say. ALICIA CHANG (AP)

Washington has played 11 Game 7s in its franchise history but is only 3-8 in those games. Here’s how the Capitals have fared in their most recent Game 7s:

2012 vs. Rangers

Eastern Conference Semifinals Capitals lost 2-1 Caps defenseman Roman Hamrlik scored just 38 seconds after the Rangers grabbed a two-goal advantage in the third period. But Washington couldn’t get the equalizer and went on to fall in the conference semifinals for the third time in four years.

Tiger Woods won The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass on Sunday.

Golf Tiger Woods had the last word against Sergio Garcia by winning The Players Championship on Sunday. Woods ended a weekend of words with Garcia by finding land on the final two holes for par to close with a 2-under 70. Garcia was tied for the lead as he stood on the 17th tee and stared at the island green. He hit into the water twice to make a quadruple-bogey 7, and then hit his tee shot into the water on the 18th in a stunning collapse. Woods joined Fred Couples, Davis Love III and Steve Elkington as multiple winners on the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. It was his 78th career win on the PGA Tour and fourth of the season.

games in the series. The game ended with a melee in the far left corner in the New York zone after the final buzzer had sounded. The Rangers played disciplined hockey throughout, and weren’t called for any penalties in the game until after time expired. The Capitals killed off all five power plays against them, but two in the third period cut out precious time they could have had to net a tying goal.

Defenseman Mike Green left Washington short-handed when he took a retaliation cross-checking penalty on Derek Dorsett with 6:14 remaining. Just after that penalty expired, Lundqvist denied Eric Fehr’s drive with a snaring glove save. Lundqvist then covered the puck in front with 48.4 seconds left, keeping Marcus Johansson at bay after the Capitals pulled goalie Braden Holtby for an extra attacker. Lundqvist was at his best earlier in the third when the Capitals came at him in waves in search of the tying goal. He turned aside Mike Ribeiro, who scored the overtime goal to win Game 5, with just over 11 minutes remaining, and stopped Fehr three minutes later on a rush up the middle. Lundqvist gave an emphatic fist pump and a joyous yell when time ran out. IR A PODELL (AP)

The first punk rock show Mary Timony attended is still vivid in her mind. She was 15, and the concert, featuring Beefeater and Rites of Spring, was held at the Chevy Chase Community Center. It was 1985. The intensity and intimacy of D.C.’s burgeoning punk rock subculture immediately drew her in. “The bands were raw and powerful. The people were freaky. I felt like I belonged there,” she says. “I wanted to do that, too.” Everything about the show amazed her. “I remember seeing a kid there that was in my history class at school,” the guitarist says. “He was slam dancing, and he was so overwhelmed by the heat and craziness of the crowd that he ran out the door and threw up.” Timony soon became a fixture in the crowds at shows by bands such as Gray Matter, Ignition, Scream and Fugazi. “I remember looking up during one [Fugazi] show and realizing that there was actual human sweat condensed on the walls and the ceiling that was dripping on my head,” she says. “I had the feeling that something larger than life was happening. It was almost like being at a religious meeting.” Timony says these early experiences were the foundation for everything she has done musically. “It was the most authentic thing I had ever seen,” she says. “I knew I wanted to make music that was just as real as what I felt then.”

Rock Solid Over a career spanning more than 20 years, D.C. native Mary Timony has fronted several bands — including Helium, Autoclave and her own Mary Timony Band — and has made four solo albums that have earned her a devoted fan base and a reputation as one of indie rock’s most inventive artists. Rolling Stone says her most recent group, the almost uniformly ecstatically reviewed Wild Flag, “makes other bands sound like sniffly rookies.” For the Post’s full profile of Timony, go to /magazine.

Nearly three decades later, Timony, whose most recent band, Wild Flag, features “Portlandia” star Carrie Brownstein, is able to marvel at having made music her life’s work. It has brought her some fame and perhaps less fortune. Now 43 and living in the same Northwest Washington, D.C., home where she spent her early

“Someone asked me recently if I get recognized at Whole Foods, and I had to laugh. I’m so off the radar.” childhood, Timony has become a sort of rock idol for people who hate the very idea of rock idols. “She’s mesmerizing,” says Ian MacKaye of Fugazi. “It is almost impossible to watch anyone else when Mary is in your line of sight.” Timony spent much of last year on a Wild Flag tour that included big festivals and such high-profile gigs as “Late Show With David Letterman” and “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” And yet, if you went door to door in Timony’s Glover Park neighborhood, few people, if any, would know they were living next to a musician the Atlantic has called “as epic a guitar player as ever.” “Someone asked me recently if I get recognized at Whole Foods, and I had to laugh,” she says. “I’m so off the radar.” A I M E E S WA R T Z ( T H E WA S H I N G TON POST )

FRESH OUT OF COLLEGE, JOE WANG and two friends opened a restaurant on the campus of Ohio State University. Though the business plan looked great on paper, Wang and his partners had a rude awakening during the summer when students were scarce and revenue plummeted.

Angela Baker’s summer in the Middle East helped her win a State Department job.

There and Back Again Even a short-term study abroad can have lasting benefits Programs Angela Baker had a pretty great job in the Obama administration a few years back. Still, she was itching to break into the international policy field. So, while working full time at the Labor Department, Baker pursued a master’s degree in international conflict analysis and resolution at George Mason University ( As part of the program, she spent a summer in Israel and the Palestinian territories studying the conflict there firsthand. That summer, students met

with government leaders, university professors and nonprofit workers in both regions. Though the trip lasted only two and a half months, the experience helped Baker land a job with the State Department and jump-start her international career. “The goal was to work more in the international space,” says Baker, 31. And the time abroad helped her do that: Baker now works for an international corporate social responsibility program called Wireless Reach at Qualcomm. Though less immersive than programs that last a semester or full year, short-term study-abroad programs allow busy students to balance other responsibilities such as full-time jobs or kids.

“Students make amazing connections with their faculty members,” GW’s Ochs says. “Making that lasting connection with this person is a great opportunity.”

Study Abroad Continued from page E3

just some of the reasons to consider a short stint abroad during grad school:

Global Connections A practical international experience in grad school can help students get a foot in the door at international agencies in the District, program coordinators say. “In D.C., a lot of organizations that people want to work for are international organizations,” says Laura Ochs, associate director for

George Washington University’s Office for Study Abroad ( “It’s expected that people have some international experience.” Interning with an organization abroad, even for a few weeks, lets students make connections that can lead to a job offer. “I have a grad student who was working in an organization in the West Bank, and now she’s director of programming for that organization in D.C.,” says Yehuda Lukacs, associate provost for international programs and director of George Mason’s Center for Global Education.

A Short (Term) Primer

Length of Stay: Short-term studyabroad programs generally range from two to nine weeks Costs: Varied. George Washington’s Survey of International Economics summer program in China runs about $5,000, while its winter education trip to South Africa costs more than $7,000. George Mason’s nine-week Israel and Palestine program costs about $7,000, as well, while a four-week


program on Italian media and society costs nearly $5,000. Neither include airfare and out-of-pocket expenses. At the University of Maryland, a spring-break trip to Peru and a summer trip to Ireland with the drama department each cost more than $4,000 with airfare, meals and other expenses.

Tips for Applying: If you’re considering studying abroad, talk to an academic and study-abroad


adviser at your school as soon as possible, says Deborah Lake, a coordinator in U.Md.’s Education Abroad office. Certain programs may fill up quickly, while others aren’t offered every year, she says. Students may want to apply for scholarships to help cover the costs. In addition to university scholarships, check out organizations such as Diversity Abroad (Diversityabroad .com/scholarships) or CIEE ( study-abroad/scholarships). E.B.

George Washington Ph.D. students who spent winter break studying South Africa’s education system lived with host families.

an entire semester in grad school because of degree requirements. Instead, Manley spent a winter break in South Africa studying the country’s post-apartheid education system “It allowed me to engage in the study-abroad experience without derailing me from graduating on time,” Manley says. It’s rare that grad students have time to do a full semester of coursework abroad, says Deborah Lake, coordinator for marketing and freshman initiatives at the University of Maryland’s Education Abroad office. “To do a semester program, they’d often have to take a leave of absence from school,” she says. Some students do choose to do so. Baker, who took a sabbatical from work to go abroad, could spare

While most grad students choose programs closely related to their degree program, others use the short trips to try something new. “Some students do programs that have nothing to do with their degree,” Lake says. For instance, a student in the school of public policy is attending a summer landscape architecture program. For some students, the experience helps them realize a certain career isn’t a good fit. “Short-term programs may help you discern some of the questions of ‘what do I want to do, where do my passions really lie?’ ” Lake says.


George Washington education administration student Margaux Manley, second from left, met fellow educators in South Africa. University of Maryland library science student Margaret Leist explored India, right.

Baker, who interned at a nonprofit in East Jerusalem that was trying to create an environmentally sustainable school, says her on-theground experience in Israel and the West Bank was eye-opening. “As Americans, we often study these international conflicts, but until you live there, you don’t get a deep understanding,” she says. For Margaret Leist, 28, a master of library science student at the University of Maryland (Umd .edu), study abroad wasn’t initially on her radar. But she jumped at the opportunity to go to India for two weeks for an information studies program, during which she visited Indian universities’ libraries as well as tech and software companies. “We met with practitioners and actual people in the workforce,” she says. “It wasn’t theoretical; it was seeing these theories in action.” Leist adds that the hands-on experience piques interest in her résumé. “It’s a conversation starter” during job interviews, she says. “People see that you’re flexible and have been exposed to a variety of perspectives.”

Student Margaret Leist took snapshots of India during her two-week program.

only a couple of months. The higher costs of longer programs also influenced her decision. “I would have loved to live abroad for a year, but it would’ve been expensive,” she says.

Expand Your Network Study-abroad coordinators also tout the benefits of connecting more closely with a university faculty member during the intensive trips abroad.

Some believe a “real” study abroad experience requires a longer programs. “But I’ve learned you can experience a meaningful cultural and academic experience with a short-term program,” GW grad student Manley says. Those who have participated in the shorter programs say a brief time in another country can have a long-lasting impact on a student’s life. “You don’t have to be abroad for three months,” Ochs says. “Personal change can still happen.” ERIN BYL ANDER (FOR E XPRESS)

Shut down computers overnight; use blinds strategically to let in light but reduce warming in summer; and use motion-sensing fluorescent or, even better, LED lights for maximum efficiency. For water, get your landlord or building owner to use graywater and low-flow toilets, urinals and sinks. For paper, make sure to print only what you need, use double-sided recycled paper, and reuse and recycle.

Green Your Office

The sustainability movement has come of age, but most workplaces still operate like it’s 1999. Maddeningly inefficient office spaces abound: over-conditioned iceboxes buzzing with wasteful electronics. There are easy ways to minimize waste and optimize resource use at the office, and most workplaces just need someone to get the ball rolling. And that person could be you! Whether you’re a Prius-driving, calculator-wielding eco-geek, a Six Sigma management guru or just a harried cubicle-dweller with a conscience, you can make your office a greener place. Here’s how. ANDREW EIL (FOR E XPRESS)

If you are a natural manager or political organizer, this section is for you. Your cubicle cohorts look FOR to you to lead them. Most offices don’t have strong sustainability policies — it’s not for lack of money or technology, but because they lack the culture and motivation. As an impassioned office leader, you can get the troops fired up. You’ll need goals, a plan, an outreach strategy and a way to win over all of the key stakeholders, says Mary Reilly, a sustainability management expert ( Sound like a political campaign? You’re not far off. You’ll need to win management’s approval and build your colleagues’ enthusiasm. Try holding an awareness campaign on green practices, or challenge other departments to intraoffice competitions to meet recycling and reduced consumption goals. A few well-executed strategies can make a world of difference.

Born Leaders

Most offices don’t have strong sustainability policies. It’s not for lack of money or technology, but because they lack the culture and motivation.


THE LAZY So you’re not a management wizard, you’re not a spreadsheet monkey, and you’re not much of a leader, but your conscience is telling you it’s time to do something. Don’t despair. Here are a few tips that will ease your eco-guilt while saving you money: Use mugs, reusable water bottles and thermoses. Check out S’well for stylish versions ( Set your printer for double-sided, and use it sparingly. Turn your computer off at night. Take public transit: Try NextBus to time your ride ( nextbus/arrivals.cfm). Or skip paid transit all together: Use Sluglines for free carpooling ( and Capital Bikeshare to work off the calories. Other options: Walk, buy a beater bike or sign up for teleworking from home. Use those recycle bins, and commandeer one to put next to your desk.

Institute an officewide recycling policy, with copious and well-placed pre-sorted recycle bins. Create an office meetings policy that encourages virtual meetings (which reduce carbon emissions from forgone travel) and paperless technologies. Have office dining facilities commit to local and organic sourcing. Put in place green procurement measures for cleaning products, equipment and office supplies. Publicly reward those who observe best practices and (gently) shame the laggards.

If He Builds It … Name: Maxwell Yakush, 32 Position: Architectural Fabricator (

Salary: $60,000 a year What He Does: Yakush uses specialized tools to craft bespoke creations for homes, “things that

architects want that they can’t get off-the-shelf,” he says. A recent project had him building steel girders and other elements to give a 16-seat home theater an industrial look. “I was in charge of the construction of the whole theater,” Yakush says. “When I started it was a concrete block.” For other projects, he’s built historically accurate windows and specially fit wooden benches.

“I like figuring out how to make something to exactly as designed, the problem-solving of it,” he says.

How He Got the Job: Yakush got his start building houses in his teens. By the time he entered the Corcoran College of Art, he had developed an expertise in woodworking. Continued on page E8

After he graduated, he spent a year as a display artist for Urban Outfitters. Then Yakush was hired as the construction manager at the Corcoran Gallery. “Every time a show changes, pretty much every wall is torn down and replaced,” he says. For one show in particular, “We got to make this cool rolling pedestal for the Greek slave marble sculpture,” he says.

Yakush spent the next three years working for The Craftsman Group, a firm that specializes in restoring the facades of historic homes and buildings. “At this point, when I drive through Georgetown, it’s like half the windows there I’ve worked on,” he says.

what I think separates a really skilled craftsmen from an OK craftsman.”

How You Can Get This Job: “Homebuilding is how I got my start,” Yakush says. He also attended the Corcoran, which is the only four-year art school in the D.C. area. But you don’t have to get a fancy degree. Yakush recommends aspiring craftsmen try to find apprenticeships in woodworking or metalworking or in similar shops. BETH MARLOWE (EXPRESS)

At 68, Rod Stewart has written the most personal, revealing album of his career

Rod Stewart has never shied from the spotlight, but on this day, the famously cheeky rocker wants a softer glow. He’s waiting to be interviewed on camera about his first album of original music in almost 20 years, and the lighting inside the fitness center of his Beverly Hills compound isn’t quite right. He calls for his No. 1 expert to check it out. When his wife, Penny Lancaster, arrives, she looks through the camera and insists on softer lights. As they dim, the 42-year-old model/ photographer dusts Stewart’s face with powder, then leans in toward his trademark spiky do. “Not the hair, not the hair, not the hair,” he protests uselessly. She tugs at two strands, the result imperceptible. “You only thought you had it perfect,” Lancaster says, smiling. There’s a lot of love in Stewart’s life now, and it’s on full display on



“Time,” his new album, which was released last week. There are other signs, too, like how his youngest sons’ weights are scrawled on a scale inside this apartment-sized gym, just above “mummy” and “daddy”; and how he pauses during an interview to shout, “See ya, Shawny,” to his eldest son, Sean, as he grabs some water after playing basketball on the court outside.

“It was probably the longest writer’s block in history, you know, 20-odd years. But it wasn’t self-imposed. It was maybe a lack of confidence.”

After releasing eight cover albums, Stewart rediscovered his songwriting voice while reviewing his life for his 2012 autobiography, “Rod.” That self-reflection, combined with the contentment he clearly feels, resulted in a deeply personal collection of songs: stories about his father, his early life, his eight children, his two divorces. “I’d sort of given up, let’s put it that way,” he says. “But because of the autobiography, it inspired me. … I was in the right state of my life to start writing these very personal songs.” He also found a delight in songwriting that had been elusive. “It always used to be like work for me. It was never a pleasure,” he says. “But now, I finally enjoy it. … I can’t wait to start writing again.” The autobiography and the album are companions, Stewart says, though in some ways the record is more revealing. He’s embracing an image far from the “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” swagger of his heyday. Here, the 68-year-old is a loving dad, grateful son and faithful partner. “It’s OK,” he says. “I believe that’s one way you can write songs — be as personal as you can. I’ve always said my life’s been an open book. I’ve got nothing to hide.” SANDY COHEN (AP)

Today’s Top Stops


‘I’ve Got Nothing to Hide’ She & Him Is No Side Project Album Review Is there any limit to Zooey Deschanel’s creativity? With her starring on a hit sitcom, “New Girl,” it’s hard to work out when she’d have the time to write music. Yet “Volume 3” from her duo, She & Him, with M. Ward, definitely doesn’t sound like something that’s been made on the side. Their third record bursts to life with the bluesy “I’ve Got Your Number, Son.” It’s the kind of song you imagine being played on the jukebox in a 1950s diner. The lyrics throughout the album are dreamy and full of unrequited love, but sung in an almost theatrical way, which makes sense, given her day job. SIAN WATSON (AP)



They’ll Do It Live German electronic music duo Digitalism doesn’t always play “live,” per se — sometimes Jens Moelle and Ismail Tufekci just DJ — but the Daft Punk-influenced pair is currently in the midst of a brief U.S. tour that finds it testing out a new live show, which should be a lot more fun than just watching two guys spin records. U Street Music Hall, 1115 U St. NW; Mon., 9 p.m., $12-$15; 202588-1880, (U Street)

Break Dancing, With Berets The Urban Corps Festival showcases French hip-hop, which is like American hip-hop but somehow just cooler and with more silent letters.

Curmudgeonly Chef Anthony Bourdain’s new CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” is yet another excuse for him to run around the world collecting stories about food and making fun of people.

lookout TV tonight

School’s Out for CW As ‘90210’ wraps up, the network moves on from teen melodrama Series Finale What’s the old saying? History repeats itself, f irst as tragedy, then as farce. The second coming of “90210” concludes tonight, unmourned and unmissed. And largely unwatched. In fact, while most people watch series finales to see how things turn out, the network is promoting the last “90210” as a showcase for a guest stint by CW



Tristan Wilds, left, and Shenae Grimes, right, can’t believe The CW canceled “90210.”

Prince Michael Jackson and a performance by the Goo Goo Dolls. The CW, and the WB before it, used to be the place for teen-

age melodrama. With “Dawson’s Creek,” “One Tree Hill” and “Gilmore Girls,” it was where you could watch improbably good-looking

young people wrestle with several lifetimes of emotional entanglements all before graduating from high school. That baton appears to have been picked up, or perhaps stolen, by ABC Family. That network routinely grabs the lion’s share of the young female audience that used to watch the WB/CW with “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” “Pretty Little Liars” and similar fare. Even “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has migrated to ABC Family with the critically acclaimed “Bunheads.” Today, The CW’s strength appears to be comic book melodrama. The series that the network was quickest to renew were “A rrow,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “Supernatural.” KE VIN MCDONOUGH (UNIVERSAL UCLICK)

Season Finale

So, No ‘Mother’ Yet? On the eighth-season finale of “How I Met Your Mother” (8 p.m., CBS), Robin and Barney prepare to tie the knot, but their night of relaxation is sabotaged by an obnoxious couple (Casey Wilson and Keegan Michael Key). Also, Ted (Josh Radnor, above) invites Lily out to see the house he’s finally finished fixing up. (TM)

“Props to all the dudes who made me mix tapes to win my heart in my teens & 20s. We may not have ended up together, but that part lives on.” — @KITTENWITHAWHIP

reminisces about what was once the modern-day form of a love letter.

“The mind of Dan Snyder: Doesn’t think ‘Redskins’ is offensive, but if you draw devil horns on his picture, you are an antisemite.” — @MICHAELSCHERER can’t understand the Washington NFL franchise owner’s logic in telling USA Today that “we’ll never change the name. It’s that simple,” when he previously sued the parent company of Washington City Paper over a cover illustration of him with devil horns, citing anti-Semitism.

“This is what happens “Wish #SNL when [jerk] managers and hadn’t forced agents get in the way of Kristen Wiig to art! How amazing would reprise ALL her that album have been?” most iconic, and — COMMENTER ARI BASU AT ROLLINGSTONE.COM/ therefore played MUSIC reacts to an AP story on how Jimi out, characters.” Hendrix and Miles Davis once reached out to Paul McCartney about recording an album together. Their 1969 telegram advised McCartney to contact producer Alan Douglas about whether the Beatle could make the session. It’s not known if McCartney was ever made aware of the invitation — he was on vacation at the time, and an aide replied on McCartney’s behalf that he would be unavailable for two weeks.

— @JARETTSAYS is disappointed in Wiig’s return to the ‘Saturday Night Live’ stage as host over the weekend.

“Mike Tyson is getting his own cartoon for Adult Swim entitled ‘Mike Tyson Mysteries,’ a show where he fights crime with his sidekick, a talking pigeon. No we didn’t make that up. Also, he has a magical face tattoo. Clearly this is must-watch TV.” — A. ISAAC AT GUYISM.COM/ ENTERTAINMENT is looking

forward to the new show featuring the former heavyweight champion of the world, scheduled to appear on Cartoon Network.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You have a great deal of staying power, and you can teach a younger team member what it means to go the distance. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may have made others wait quite a while before showing them what you can do, but now everyone understands why you are No. 1. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Certain things have been feeling temporary for too long; today is the day to begin work toward building something permanent for yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) What you see and hear around you all day long can prove quite inspiring, provided you know how to channel all that information.

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) You may be recalling a certain past experience that seems closely related to something you are going through right now. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your charm can work wonders for you, but take care that you don’t let yourself overdo it. Don’t risk seeming insincere.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You don’t have to risk embarrassment today; you can stay out of situations that put you in compromising positions, if you want to. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your attempts to help another may fall short today, but he or she is ready to pick up where you left off and take over on his or her own.
