REUTERS NEWS SERVICE Prince William and his new bride reveal their honeymoon destination on Saturday, after millions of people around the world tuned in to watch the couple tie the knot in a dazzling display of royal pageantry. The prince and Kate Middleton, his 29-year-old girlfriend of nearly a decade, married in Westminster Abbey on Friday in the biggest royal wedding for 30 years. A million cheering people crowded into central London to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds as they rode from the abbey to Queen Elizabeth’s Buckingham Palace in a 1902 opentopped state landau carriage.

Tornado losses in billions

"Nothing else anywhere has the archetypal quality of what was shown in Westminster Abbey, the same closeness between what is unspeakably grand and what is ordinarily human."

President Barack Obama promised federal aid on Friday to the tornado-ravaged U.S. South, where deadly twisters have killed at least 339 people and caused billions of dollars in damage.

Commentators praised the royal family for striking a balance between carefully choreographed grandeur—military bands in black bearskin hats and household cavalrymen in shining breastplates—and personal spontaneity. “Nothing else anywhere has the archetypal quality of what was shown in Westminster Abbey, the same closeness between what is unspeakably grand and what is ordinarily See ROYAL, page 2

FROM PAGE 1 human,” wrote Charles Moore in the Daily Telegraph. William, 28, greeted fans camped out ahead of the wedding, and in another surprise drove his bride the short journey from Buckingham Palace to St James’s Palace in his father’s open-top Aston Martin with the licence plate “JU5T WED.” Like other details of the wedding, including the designer of Middleton’s dress, the honeymoon venue is a closely

The closure of Goleta Sports will affect local residents who visit the store to purchase hard to find athletic gear and sportswear. “We offer a spectrum for teen sporting equipment, uniforms, fitness accessories and sport apparel here,” Lovelace said. “There is nothing like us in Goleta.” Frederika Smith, 47, owner of Jungle George Grill next door to Goleta Sports,

kept secret, though that has not stopped newspapers from guessing. Suggestions have included locations as varied as the Seychelles, Kenya, Mustique, an island on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, the Greek island of Corfu, a villa in Tuscany and the Scilly Isles off the southwest coast. Bookmaker Paddy Power has Mustique as the favourite, followed by Jordan, the Seychelles and Australia. The intense speculation over the couple’s every move underlines the pressure they will face as the future king and queen living

in the full glare of the media spotlight. Uncomfortable parallels have been drawn between Middleton and William’s hugely popular mother Princess Diana, who was hounded by paparazzi right up to her death in a Paris car crash in 1997 aged just 36. Her death, and divorce from Prince Charles the year before, marked a low point for the royal family, which has also been embroiled in scandal and seen by many as out of touch with the public, particularly during austere economic times.

The event is a fundraiser for the jazz department at SBCC. Tickets are $12.

FROM PAGE 2 But Middleton’s background—she is the first commoner to marry a prince close to the throne in over 350 years— and William’s personable style have helped reverse the monarchy’s rating in recent opinion polls, at least for now. Not that the wedding was high on everyone’s agenda. “The royal family have too many rights in a country where other people are having their state rights withdrawn. We are funding a wedding of two people I’ve never met and I don’t care about at all,” said London charity worker Jessamy Barker, 29. Middleton has been given the title Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, after the queen made her grandson William the Duke of Cambridge to mark the marriage.

Those big brown eyes can’t fool you BOOKS

BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

You know exactly what your pet is thinking. The wag of the tail, the flick of an ear, a well-placed paw or nose tells you everything you need to know.

You’ve been an animal lover since you can remember, a trait you share with humans reaching back millennia. But the way we treat animals now is not the way it’s always been. In the new book “The Bond” by Wayne Pacelle, you’ll find out why.

In one way or another, we’ve all grown up with animals. Research shows that 90 percent of the characters in children’s picture books are animals. And who can forget the television shows we watched and the toys we played with?

While it’s uncertain when animals were first welcomed to ancient hearths, humans seem to be biologically wired to live with them. Hormones that bond people together also serve to bond us with our furry friends. Studies show that having animals around is good for us, and vice versa. But it hasn’t always been like that.

Animals needed advocates, and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was founded just after the Civil War. Just decades later, Henry Salt “laid the groundwork for the modern approach to animal rights” with a paper he wrote on

the subject. Charles Darwin weighed in, arguing that there was little difference between human and animal. Science is just now beginning to agree.

In his work with the Humane Society of the United States, Pacelle has seen some things that shocked him and some that give him hope. He writes of “the rising political strength of HSUS” and See BOOKS, page 12

NEWS IN BRIEF

Shuttle launch delayed

NASA delayed Friday’s launch of space shuttle Endeavour because of a glitch but the grounded crew and the commander’s wounded wife got a chance to greet President Barack Obama as he toured the Kennedy Space Center. Endeavour’s launch was scrubbed four hours before liftoff after the heaters failed on one of the ship’s power units. NASA said it would be at least Monday before it could try again to launch Endeavour on its final voyage. U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who is married to Endeavour commander Mark Kelly, was on hand for the launch. The Arizona Democrat was gravely injured during an assassination attempt on January 8 and had not been seen publicly since then. Obama met privately with Giffords before greeting the six crewmen, the White House said. “I bet you were hoping to see a rocket launch today,” Kelly told the president.

San Francisco ban on circumcision?

A group opposed to male circumcision said on Tuesday they have collected more than enough signatures to qualify a proposal to ban the practice in San Francisco as a ballot measure for November elections. But legal experts said that even if it were approved by a majority of the city’s voters, such a measure would almost certainly face a legal challenge as an unconstitutional infringement on freedom of religion. Circumcision is a ritual obligation for infant Jewish boys, and is also a common rite among Muslims, who account for the largest share of circumcised men worldwide. The leading proponent of a ban, Lloyd Schofield, 59, acknowledged circumcision is widely socially accepted but he said it should still be outlawed. “It’s excruciatingly painful and permanently damaging surgery that’s forced on men when they’re at their weakest and most vulnerable,” he told Reuters.

A satirical Broadway show about Mormons by the creators of TV series “South Park” earned 12 nominations from the Drama Desk on Friday, as it announced its picks for the best plays and musicals of the year. “The Book of Mormon,” which was seven years in the making for Trey Parker and Matt Stone, opened in March to glowing reviews. It was nominated for outstanding musical, best direction and best lyrics, as well as earning three acting nods. Daniel Radcliffe, 21, of “Harry Potter” movie fame, was singled out for his role as the ambitious J. Pierrepont Finch in a revival of the 1962 Pulitzer-Prize winning show “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” It was the movie star’s Broadway musical debut, three years after he hit Broadway as a disturbed stable boy in “Equus” in 2008.

Our job takes us to many conferences throughout the year and while we have the luxury of listening to some of the leading experts in the world on everything from economics to tax strategies, sometimes the best lessons are found in places you may not expect. I want to share with you one such story that took place over a sandwich that really renewed my faith in what this country can all be about. The day started in the middle of the night and by the time my plane landed and I arrived at the conference, my plans to get in a workout changed to sandwich which just seemed to make a lot more sense. I took a seat at the open kitchen and as I waited for my order to come up, the typical travel chit chat occurred as the line cook prepared for the dinner crowd that night … where are you from, what brings you here, etc. In reciprocal fashion, I inquired as well and that is where the surprise occurred. The chef asked me, ���you deal with people and finances, can you tell me if people change when they get a lot of money?” I replied, it depends on whether they earned it or if it was handed to them ... if they earned it, my experience is that they don’t change. In response she said, “good,

because I am going to make it.” Now I was intrigued and wanted to learn more. It turns out that April is the single mother of two and had her life turned upside down a few years ago in a divorce. She said that her husband made good money at the time but it turns out they spent it as fast as it came in. She found herself in a mountain of debt and was scared of what the future held at the time but was determined to “make it.” For the first time in her life she created a budget and had to figure a way to make ends meet on the salary and then she stops to correct herself, on the “hourly wage of a line chef.” She worked with a credit counseling service to put her debt on a monthly payment that will be fully satisfied in a few years. Once she did her budget, she was amazed about how she could figure things out and the only regret she had was they she did not do it years ago. Raising two children by herself as well as two dogs and a turtle has to be an enormously stressful challenge. But you would never know by her attitude. While many of us would focus on all the hurdles, she could not be any more positive and confident about the future. As she softly spoke, “I will be a success,” in

Ask Seth & Brad

the most confident of deliveries, “I will be a huge success” she repeated to herself. Then a couple walked up the counter and politely interrupted to say, “last year we were in here and we wanted to stop and say hi and tell you how good it is to see you again.” It is absolutely amazing what authentic positive attitude can do and how infectious it can be. April is convinced that she will be a huge success in the future but I think she has found secrets to happiness that money can never purchase. By many accounts, I say she is already a huge success. I came to the conference to hear about current trends and advanced planning techniques but the most valuable lesson occurred over a sandwich.

which means that once an artist has died, his heirs begin to sign his name for his estate. These are NOT worth nearly as much as prints overseen by the artist when alive. Beware of prints saying “genuine limited edition”. I have seen certificates of authenticity with this common phrase. If a print is a genuine limited edition, there’s no need to say it. And, a genuine limited edition print means that the master etching, engraving or lithograph stone is defaced or X’d after the print run is complete to ensure that no further copies will ever be made. Beware of prints which have the printer’s business name in letters somewhere in the margins or on the back. These are usually tops of calendars or cut-outs or mail order DaVincis. A common printing house name for reproduction prints is Collier’s. Beware of any print, especially Japanese woodcuts, which are cut right up to the image. Without any paper showing around the image, you can be almost sure the print is a copy, or has been defaced. A good margin is an important element of the work. Finally, there are millions of cheap prints to be found from the turn of the 19th C. to 1940 because of the popularity of photographic reproductions, and reproduction master works by earlier artists. The American middle class loved to decorate parlors with reproductions, which are difficult to identify because they look as old as the originals.

Alexander Fell holds up one of the paper windmills he’s finished cutting and explains the basic principle behind wind energy. “When you blow on it you create the wind energy and that makes the windmill go around,” Alexander said. This concludes the 4th-grader’s duties and he leaves the wind energy station to join his peers drinking lemonade, eating solar cooked s’mores, and using an inflated globe as what could be the world’s largest soccer ball in Laguna Blanca School’s annual Earth Day celebration on Friday.

said that the day offers students a chance to demonstrate what they’ve learned in class at stations set up around the back field. “A lot of things they’ve studied during the school year and now they get to apply them to a fun activity,” Naretto said. One station shows the amount of trash produced by a class room in three days— enough to fill a medium-sized Dumpster. Students are asked to write down one way to reduce the amount of trash they produce. At another station, students are shown pictures of items from their lunches and they have to name whether it goes in the trash, recycling bin, or compost pile. Correct answers are rewarded with chips. And one more station has marshmallows, melted chocolate, and graham crackers ready for the taking inside pizza boxes modified with a plastic top and tinfoil—provided they explain what’s melting the chocolate light from the sun reflected off the tin foil).

Water for Elephants CINEMA IN FOCUS

3 Stars – Troubling

The award winning novel by Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants, has been brought to the screen by director Francis Lawrence (I am Legend). Adapted by Richard LaGravenese, the film varies slightly from the novel but the romantic tale is both moving and troubling. The struggle of spousal abuse remains to be a central part of the tale though the resolution is changed. The central character of the tale is Jacob Jankowski (Robert Pattinson). As an older man, he comes to a circus and begins to share the tale of his life to the circus manager. We are taken back almost sixty years to the Great Depression and the beginning of Jacob’s adult life. Jacob is the son of Polish immigrants who have sacrificed greatly to put him through Cornell’s veterinary school in 1931. Just as he is taking his final exam to become a licensed practitioner, he is informed of his parents’ accidental deaths. Discovering that they had mortgaged their home and business to put him through school, Jacob soon realizes he has lost everything. Desperate, he hits the roads. Walking until he is exhausted, he jumps on a passing train. It happens to be a circus train. He reflects that he “doesn’t know if he chose the train or the train chose him”, which often seems true of significant moments in which our lives are forever changed. Jacob’s veterinary skill is greatly needed to care for the animals of the circus, and soon, his heart is taken by the beautiful wife of the brutal circus owner. Marlena (Reese Witherspoon) had been abandoned as a child and raised in the fostercare system where her beauty only made her a victim. But when the circus came through town, August (Christopher Waltz) invited her to join his circus and his life. Wed at the age of 19, Marlena had learned to manage August’s temper just as she had learned to calm the animals with which she performed her circus act. When August buys Rosie, a performing elephant from a defunct circus, he asks Jacob to become her trainer and help Marlena create an act. Serendipitously discovering the secret that released Rosie’s abilities, Jacob and Marlena also become bonded as they both try to protect Rosie from August’s brutality. It is the same brutality that he has acted out against Marlena, as well as countless others.

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT President Barack Obama promised federal aid on Friday to the tornado-ravaged U.S. South, where deadly twisters have killed at least 339 people and caused billions of dollars in damage. Obama toured smashed homes and met survivors on a visit to the worst-hit state, Alabama. It was one of seven southern U.S. states mauled by recent tornadoes and storms which have caused insured losses of between

$2 billion and $5 billion, according to one catastrophe risk modeler’s estimate. “We are going to do everything we can to help these communities rebuild,” Obama told reporters in Tuscaloosa, a university city in Alabama that was devastated by the tornadoes. The destruction inflicted this week by the twisters, which flattened whole neighborhoods, was the deadliest U.S. natural catastrophe since See TORNADO, page 12

BY DENNY WAYMAN AND HAL CONKLIN

We won’t share any more of the story, however, the film clearly shows the impact of a violent man, both in his home and in his work. Violence undermines everything in a relationship. In the novel, August is a paranoid schizophrenic, but in the film he is a person with an anger addiction. Either way, the effect of his violence is to keep him from intimacy in his marriage and success in his business. “Water for Elephants” is a well-developed tale of the all-too-common problem of spousal abuse set in the uncommon world of the circus. Both are exposed in new and helpful ways. Discussion for those who have seen this film: 1. The final result of August’s violent way of running the circus creates an ironic

justice. Do you believe such a result is true to life?

2. The life-long impact of this one year in Jacob’s life is obvious. Is there a sin-

gle year in your own life that changed everything for you? In what ways did it change everything?

HOROSCOPES by Eugenia Last

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Set your goals and put your priorities in order before you make a move. It's easy to get sidetracked by what others are doing. This time, you must follow the path that best suits you. This is a year to be meticulous, stable and positive. You can achieve success if you go about it the right way. Your numbers are 7, 11, 14, 22, 27, 38, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't jump to conclusions before getting all the facts. You should be extremely careful when discussing business or financial matters with those in a position of authority. Deception is likely. Do your own research. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't put up with friends or relatives giving you a hard time. Dealing with institutions may be necessary if you or a loved one needs medical help. Keep your personal information a secret or someone is likely to meddle in your affairs. 3 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can get ahead if you organize your day carefully. Getting involved in a charitable event will help raise your profile. There is plenty to do and your accomplishments will impress someone you want on your team. Suggest special plans for two. 4 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You'll upset someone if you are too busy to get together. It will probably be easier to be accommodating. Now is not the time to annoy anyone or to avoid promises you made without thinking. 2 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will get along well with anyone you encounter and can even sell your own ideas along the way.

the work done to change California’s slaughterhouses. He says the organization was never meant to limit itself to companion animals and that the “concern reaches to all animals” that are being exploited or mistreated.

Though controversy seems to follow author Wayne Pacelle everywhere, it’s hard to argue with many aspects of this book. Nobody, for instance, wants to see animals suffer, and action to pre-

TORNADO

FROM PAGE 7 Hurricane Katrina in 2005. “I have never seen devastation like this. It is heartbreaking,” said Obama, accompanied by his wife Michelle and Alabama Governor Robert Bentley. “This is something I don’t think anyone has seen before.” In Alabama, emergency officials again raised the death toll from the tornadoes in that state, to 238. Bentley said 1,700 people were injured. At least 101 more deaths were reported across Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia, Virginia and Louisiana. Children were among the victims. FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate said it was feared the number of deaths would rise as states searched for many people unaccounted for. But the number of missing was not clear. “We can’t bring those who’ve been lost back. They’re alongside God at this point ... but the property damage, which is obviously extensive, that’s something we can

EARTH

FROM PAGE 6 wind power demonstrations from Clipper Windpower. “I think it’s really important to celebrate Earth Day,” Svedlund said. “And the children love it as you can see.” Svedlund said organizing an Earth

vent it would seem prudent to the vast majority of people. That emphasis here—and especially, the hopeful and heartwarming chapter on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina—is very much worth reading.

But still, and despite that Pacelle often seems to choose his words carefully, there’s contention all over “The Bond”, no matter which side of the animal rights fence you’re on.

In this book, Pacelle takes on farmers and hunters, zoo-goers and meat-eaters, the government, gun owners, Canadians, home-

do something about,” Obama said. “With initial reports of buildings destroyed approaching 10,000, property insurance losses are expected to range from $2 to $5 Billion,” catastrophe risk modeling company EQECAT said. “Tornado activity in April is putting 2011 into the record books,” it said, adding that the recent tornado outbreak had involved “hundreds of touchdowns, some tornado tracks reported to be almost a mile (1.6 km) wide and tens of miles long causing hundreds of fatalities”. Obama was eager to show that federal relief is on its way and that he is not taking the disaster lightly. His predecessor George W. Bush was fiercely criticized for what was viewed as a slow response to Hurricane Katrina. Flying into Tuscaloosa aboard Air Force One, Obama and his family saw a wide brown scar of devastation several miles (kilometers) long and hundreds of yards (meters) wide. Tuscaloosa resident Jack Fagan, 23, was glad that Obama saw the damage. “Perhaps federal funds will help us, but

Day celebration was a natural fit for a science and gardening teacher and she enjoys sharing her own passion for environmentalism with the students. “We hope to instill these values with them when they’re young so they carry those values with them throughout their lives,” Svedlund said. Families are more than onboard for

owners, scientists, and some veterinarians. He has much to say about dolphins, “downer” cattle, dog breeders, and elephant “trainers”. And, by dealing with the Elephant in the Room, he challenges football-minded animal lovers by discussing his contentious work with Michael Vick.

If you decide to read this book, do so with curiosity about our human-animal bond and the understanding that what’s in here probably isn’t going to change anybody’s mind - though, for sure, in disputative circles, “The Bond” is going to make the fur fly.

I’m sure it will take longer than they say because it always does.” Recovery could cost billions of dollars and even with federal disaster aid it could complicate efforts by affected states to bounce back from recession. Tornadoes are a regular feature of life in the U.S. South and Midwest, but they are rarely so devastating. The tornadoes hit Alabama’s poultry industry—the state is the No. 3 U.S. chicken producer—and hurt other manufacturers in the state. They also halted coal production at the Cliffs Natural Resources mine in Alabama. The second-biggest U.S. nuclear power plant, the Browns Ferry facility in Alabama, may be down for weeks after its power was knocked out and the plant automatically shut, avoiding a nuclear disaster, officials said. Apparel producer VF Corp, owner of clothing brands such as North Face and Wrangler Jeans, said one of its jeanswear distribution centers, located in Hackleburg, Alabama, was destroyed and one employee killed.

Fell said her kids are bringing home the latest ideas on how to live a more Earth-friendly life. “Our children teach us,” Fell said. “And we’re all better for it.”
