NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY

CHUCK

SHEPARD

A 39-year-old man in Chillicothe, Ohio, was hospitalized in December after an unsuccessful suicide attempt that accidentally blew his own house to pieces and did heavy damage to neighboring homes. The man had turned on the natural gas to kill himself, but then realized that other houses might be in danger, and just as he dashed to the basement to turn off the electricity, the house exploded (probably from an electrical spark) and was leveled. A month before, the man had tried to kill himself with automobile exhaust and a garden hose, but his car ran out of gas before he could die, and he then hooked up a propane tank for the same purpose, but once again, he outlived his fuel supply.

Incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit, silver medalist Danny Harris gets back on track one day at a time.

TODAY IN HISTORY In 1797, composer Franz Schubert was born in Vienna, Austria. In 1865, Gen. Robert E. Lee was named General-in-Chief of all the Confederate armies. In 1917, Germany served notice it was beginning a policy of unrestricted submarine warfare.

It was three weeks after being freed from county jail before Olympian Danny Harris let himself cry over what he had endured while wrongly imprisoned. Harris, 39, a tall and muscular track star, was beaten, tied up and sexually abused by fellow inmates during two months in custody for a pair of Santa Monica kidnap-

pings that DNA evidence later linked to a different man. “Today is the first time I’ve cried since I got out of jail,” Harris said during an interview last week at an Ocean Park diner. “I don’t feel comfortable talking about it, because it’s really hard,” he said. “I never should have been there. It’s been really hard to get back to some normalcy, because my life is not normal anymore. My life is not the same anymore.”

The series of events that landed Harris in custody has left him angry at police and prosecutors, confused over how the system repeatedly failed him and feeling powerless as he attempts to reassemble the pieces of his fractured life. The ordeal started this past November, after a 75-year-old Santa Monica woman was kidnapped for the second time in two weeks. The kidnapper, armed with a syringe and screwdriver,

removed the victim from her Sunset Park home and demanded money, while threatening to kill her and burn down her house. The kidnapper dropped a black cap as he was chased away from the scene at gunpoint by a neighbor. Another eyewitness down the street saw the kidnapper shed a shirt as he fled the scene.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: ★★★★★-Dynamic ★★★★-Positive ★★★-Average ★★-So-so ★-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19) ★★★ You feel the full impact of Monday. Nothing happens as easily as you would like. Let others dominate; be willing to revise your schedule and thinking. Certainly you cannot be the Aries pioneer today. Tonight: Add physical activity to your plans.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Though you might have a strong sense of direction, a boss could trip you up when you least anticipate the snafu. Remember, you don’t have to react. You just need to do your work. Follow-through counts! Tonight: As you like it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★ Know when to hit the trenches and not get caught in the crossfire. Though others approach each other in a friendly, amiable way, getting a project or meeting off the ground could enlist too many egos. Do what you can alone. Tonight: Avoid bringing work home.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Know when to back off and establish new boundaries. Not everyone is likely to follow instructions. You don’t need the damages when others flub up instructions — do you? Maintain your cool despite all. Tonight: Snuggle in.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ Detach and call in your playfulness and humor. These qualities might not benefit anyone but yourself, but with today’s present waywardness, you still come out on top. Staying centered and not being affected by others will take talent. You have that. Tonight: Help a child or loved one.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ A partner knows how to rain on your parade. You don’t have to react. Rather, take the high road and try to understand what is going on with him or her. Answers and resolution prove to be more rewarding ultimately. Tonight: Reach out to someone at a distance.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★ You say what you feel, and others simply react. Don’t expect solid responses, and you will not be disappointed. Get down to the basics for answers. You know what has been tried and true for you. Incorporate physical activity into your day to allow your stress levels to stay low. Tonight: Mellow out.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ Others think they can have an effect on your mood and choices. Lately, you have been more giving and complacent than usual. Some might mistake your attitude for weakness. You will teach them otherwise! Tonight: Listen first to suggestions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ What you say might reflect your present fatigue over a problematic situation. You might not realize how negative or frustrated you seem. Use your lunchtime to snap yourself into a better mood. Your words can make or break you. Tonight: Tell it like you see it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★ You might feel entrenched in your work with no way out. Detach and think of ways to shorten your work. Learn when to delegate, using now as a primary learning experience. Others want to help. Tonight: Let others do.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ Someone pulls the rug right out from under you. Don’t stand there with your mouth open. Quickly regroup and handle any hassles. Your finances need a strong, direct approach. You don’t want to mess up right now. Tonight: Dot your i’s and cross your t’s.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ Your creativity might be down. Your resourcefulness comes through others right now. Brainstorm and evaluate different concepts. Remember, you aren’t an island in this world. You need others. Tonight: Dinner for two.

SURF REPORT

COMMUNITY BRIEFS Motion by the ocean By Daily Press staff

Calling all cyclists, beach cruisers and bike enthusiasts. The city of Santa Monica wants to know what role you think bicycles have in the future of Santa Monica. This Saturday is a chance for Santa Monicans to get together and discuss future possibilities and improvements for bike transit in the city. The former executive director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition will attend to share insight from San Francisco’s recent emphasis on bike transit. There will be a hands-on demonstration of how to take a bike on the Big Blue Bus. Topics to be discussed include bicycle safety, road rules, bike racks and amenities, updates on the Exposition bicycle path, and tips on integrating biking and transit. This workshop, being held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Ken Edwards Center, is part of Santa Monica’s “Motion by the Ocean—Getting around in Santa Monica” project that is intended to add a circulation element to the city’s general plan. This new circulation element will provide transportation policy for the city over the next 20 years. For additional information or to RSVP, call (310) 458-2204.

Monday will be smaller, chest high or so, at least until the evening when our next swell is due. It will fill in more on Tuesday, when our next NW swell is due.

Development services officer appointed

SATURDAY

By Daily Press staff

Planning and Community Director Suzanne Frick has announced the appointment of Gay Forbes as development services officer. An experienced planning administrator, Forbes will spearhead implementation of the remaining improvements to the city’s land use entitlement and building permit processes and customer service enhancements, as recommended by the Matrix Group to the Santa Monica City Council last year. “We are extremely pleased that a professional of Gay’s caliber has joined us to work on continuing permitting process improvements for our customers and staff,” said Frick. Forbes has spent more than 25 years of public service in planning and community development in four cities. Prior to coming to Santa Monica, she was assistant city manager in South Pasadena, where she oversaw land use and redevelopment policy and administration. She also served as economic development manager in Anaheim, community development director in West Hollywood and deputy director for neighborhood planning in Boston. With a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and a JD from Boston College Law School, Forbes joined the Planning and Community Development management team on Jan. 11.

OPINION

Those were the days

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Shriver should think twice Editor: Concerning a item in the SMDP (SMDP, Jan. 11th, page 1) “City Divided Over Who Deserves Affordable Units.” I am concerned over what Bobby Shriver had to say about who should get first choice of low-income units. Shriver said, and I quote, “that units ought to be set aside for teachers, firemen and police officers and others.” End of quote. Now I am not rich, as I suspect Shriver is, and I’m trying to survive on social security, Medicare and medical, and I am sure that firemen, police officers and teachers make more than I do on a monthly basis. As a retired person and not well, I’ve lived and worked in Santa Monica for 47 years. I don’t know what kind of money Shriver thinks I have, but I’m quite sure it’s a lot less then he has, since he is one of that bunch that lives on the eastern seaboard, and for Shriver to make a remark like that at a City Council meeting on Jan. 11 is insulting to me and I’m sure other Santa Monicans as well. Low-income people like myself have to count every penny. I’ve been on the lowincome unit list for some time. My monthly income is approximately $996.40. Out of this amount I pay $632 for rent and $7 for telephone. What’s left is $257 for food and other necessities one needs to survive. Now I wonder how much income Katz, Shriver and the rest of the City Council have, but sure it’s more than I drag in at the end of the month. Before Shriver puts his mouth in gear, [he should] make sure his brain is engaged, and it would help for him to know what he’s talking about, and also that he has all the facts about who needs low-income housing and who doesn’t. But maybe he doesn’t have to worry about paying rent and living on what little is left. Dale Barry Santa Monica

Santa Monica buses are unreliable Editor: As a tax-paying resident of the City of Santa Monica for many years, I wish to issue a serious complaint about the Big Blue Bus service in our City. It took me quite a while to get to this point — lots of frustration, anger and disgust... and I am not alone at this point. I take the first schedules No. 4 Blue Bus at 6:40 a.m. at the corner of San Vicente and Fourth Street every single morning when it appears. Down to Santa Monica Blvd., hopefully to catch the No. 10 freeway bus, which is another story with all the schedule changes made to it. The Big Blue Bus company happens to use the wonderful Thomas buses, which seem to break down every other day...what the company doesn’t do is send replacement buses right away when they break down. We have to stand and wait for the next pickup...20 minutes later at 7:10 a.m.! The breakdowns seem to be occurring on a regular basis. Case in point, last week one broke down and the week before again. It is very, very difficult to get to work downtown by trying to catch the No. 10 freeway bus. Case in point, this morning the No. 10 was apparently late, and people were very upset all the way to the Bundy freeway exit. It seems the 6:40 a.m. never appeared! I think this is ridiculous service for our wonderful city. People are really upset, and you can hear them carrying on about it on the bus itself. I know many have called customer service and are not happy with the replies received in those phone calls. I would appreciate your looking into this situation very much. Mrs. R. Levine Santa Monica

Bad repairs to beach access Editor, Re: “Stuck in the Mud” (SMDP, Jan. 26, page 1). As a user of the recently closed beach-access stairways in Palisades Park, I’m hoping the recent storms highlight the mysterious and costly effort to “upgrade” these stairways. Not only was the price cited in this paper extreme (several hundred thousand dollars), but there is also the issue of the time the stairways are closed. In particular, the Montana stairway was closed for more months than originally announced with little work done other than watering some new plants along the stairwell (and the accident-waiting-to-happen stairs are not any better than they were before the renovation). Worse, a bizarre decision was made to remove hillside iceplant near the start of the Montana stairway. That exposed hill subsequently collapsed in the recent storms and led to the current closure. Who is overseeing this work and tolerating the clumsy treatment of Santa Monica’s precious beach access?

COMMON SCENTS BY CAROLE ORLIN

I remember growing up in the Bronx, where my father was a huge New York Yankees fan. On special occasions when I got to go to Yankee Stadium, I was able to cheer for the larger-than-life likes of Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra and Roger Maris. Yes, those were the days. As an adult, I have spent many years in a household that consisted of true and vocal sports fans: a husband, two male children, a male dog (whose choice of toys always seemed to mirror the sporting event appearing on TV), and even a male bird, who was affectionately named Larry Bird. My vision of life became testosterone centered. I admit there were times when I thought of how lovely it would be to have someone to “dress up.” Because I had no takers at home (even my dog would hide when he saw me coming with a tutu and ballet slippers), I reluctantly let that fantasy go. Instead, after months of voluntary banishment to the bedroom, through the football season, college basketball playoffs (especially “March Madness”) and the baseball season, I finally decided that if I can’t beat them, I might as well join them. So I became a sports fan of sorts. Although I still can’t sit through an entire football game (though I do love those Super Bowl commercials), I can appreciate basketball and baseball. What I enjoy most, though, are the stories about the players, up close and personal, all the pulling-of-the-heartstrings stuff. (I do think they throw those things in for the female viewers.) For many years, I welcomed the fact that many athletes were seen as positive role models, and the athletes embraced that treatment by their fans and the media. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly clear that those were the days… Although my experiences with sports teams and individual players over the years are much more defined by conversations with my testosterone-driven family members, I cannot help but sense that the increasing number of negative factors in sports are changing the reality of the games, its players and its fans. The loyalty to a team and its players were forever changed about 30 years ago with the advent of free agency in baseball. Professional sports would never be the same again. The fan’s attachment to the home team and its stars — such as the New York Yankees with Mickey Mantle, or the Baltimore Colts with Johnny Unitas, or the Boston Celtics with Bill Russell — is history. I remember when our older son was crushed with the departure of Shaquille O’Neal (the first time) from Orlando to Los Angeles. The economics of professional sports have changed dramatically, changing the faces of all of the games. Average annual salaries have continued to skyrocket, with NBA players earning about $5 million a year to play basketball, and ticket prices have soared to all but eliminate the average family from attending a game. This has not been a healthy trend. Furthermore, who wants to “risk” bringing their family to a game, where uncertainty surrounds them in the stands? We have seen an escalation of alcohol-induced, rude behavior turning into violence, spreading from the field or

court to the spectators in the stands, evidenced in last November’s brawl during the Detroit/Indiana pro basketball game in The Palace of Auburn Hills. My recollection is that there have been isolated incidents, in or surrounding sports over the years, where the incident involving a player or fan overshadowed the game. Now, however, it seems rarely a week goes by when something negative does not get reported in the press involving an athlete. We are no longer shocked to see athletes facing criminal charges (ranging from murder to rape to assault), and hear repeated allegations of questionable or illegal use of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. Trying to find a positive role model among professional athletes is not a search that many want to undertake in 2005. My husband shared a prominent article from this week’s Sports Illustrated (January 31, 2005) magazine with me. A feature entitled “What Would You Do?” (by S.L. Price) appears to be a rationalization and sorry excuse for the ugly and criminally charged behavior displayed by Jermaine O’Neal of the Indiana Pacers. During last November’s infamous game, O’Neal punched a fan in the face while the fan’s arms were pinned by security guards. Too often, the focus of today’s athletes and many of those who report on them centers on the difficulties in their childhood years and their family lives as a way to possibly understand and forgive any negative behavior, ranging from “edgy” to outright criminal. Should the rest of us be able to use these factors as an excuse for not accepting complete responsibility for our actions? This coming Sunday (Feb. 6) brings our country together in a unique way: To celebrate a sporting event that has transcended sports, the participants and the fans. Here is a game that is defined by Roman numerals; this year it is XXXIX. For most of us, it makes no difference which two teams are playing in the Super Bowl. I know it is the Patriots against the Eagles, but really…it has become a serious excuse for a Super Party. It entices those of us who would never consider gambling on a sporting event to participate in an office pool. Even for the non-sports fan, who wants to be left out of watching the No. 1 network television event of the year? I can think of no other TV show where the commercials (a 30-second spot is going for a record $2.4 million) and the half-time show (how can they “improve” upon the interest generated by last year’s “wardrobe malfunction”?) draw more attention than the broadcast of the actual game. Perhaps this is a good thing for both the avid and the casual fan. We have reached the point where too many of the professional athletes, usually surrounded by their entourages, display an attitude of entitlement with little or no regard for the fans who pay way too much to see them play, or the fans who faithfully tune in at home. Those might have been the days, but going forward, let’s put these highly paid athletes into proper perspective. If they are no longer the role models that we seek, we do have options. We do not have to support them at the box office or purchase their jerseys. We can still enjoy ourselves without giving more energy, credit or devotion to an athlete, a team or a game than is actually deserved. Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio…?

COMMENTARY

BY CAROLINE BODKIN

If we hadn’t taken the introductory philosophy course together, we never would have met. It was an unlikely confluence of lives that now, looking back, seems so inevitable and necessary. We became friends for no reason other than that we comforted each other. I liked the way she answered a question in class, we got to talking, and that was it. Throughout our four years, we’d find each other in the dining halls or student center and take time to catch up or walk together to the gym. And over the years, our interactions amounted to genuine friendship. I liked her for her surety. I liked that she knew exactly what courses she needed to take throughout all four years in order to complete her pre-med requirements — it took me until early junior year to declare my English major. I liked that though she didn’t have a boyfriend, she didn’t miss having one. I liked how she remembered my brother’s name, how she could always tell when I wanted to know the time, how she could listen to wild stories about parties she’d missed without seeming to feel left out for not having been there. While the rest of us were funneling beers on Friday nights, Elyse was studying, or sleeping, or somewhere calm, and in bed early enough to get a healthy share of sleep. To say she was quiet is like calling water colorless. She had a way of blending in with the noises around her so that she could be present without changing the look or feel of a place. She fit in not because she was accepted, but because she didn’t stand out. It was her way. Sometime during our sophomore spring, she told me about her life outside the boundaries of our campus. First, she was paying for college herself. Her parents had divorced when she was very young; her father took off, and subse-

quently her mother became a recluse and a drunk. Her brother ran away when he was 17, and she hadn’t seen him since, though she got letters from him once every 18 months or so. Have you ever had a moment when someone you don’t know well is giving you more information about his or her life than you feel you should have? This was not one of those moments. We were not best friends. I lived with six girls all four years of school, and she wasn’t one of them. But I received her personal information like a soft piece of silk, softly testing its grain, then putting it in an envelope for safe-keeping. When we graduated, when I was running to a new city with no job and no security, she had already been accepted to med school. We didn’t speak much the first couple years out, but one year ago, through the college grapevine, I heard that her brother had died. No one knew any details other than that he was homeless in Portland, Ore., at the time. Elyse was in her second year of med school by then, living in Chicago with a boyfriend she’d been dating for a while. Upon hearing the news, I called and wrote her. Only after four months of attempting contact did I receive a short e-mail back. The body read: “I’m fine. My mom is not. I will love my brother always, and I miss him now. I’ll write more later. Love, E.” I said I’d fly out to visit her or pay for her to fly here, but she ignored my offers. I assumed she was too overwhelmed, and that she’d bring me back into her life when she had the energy and space to do so. Last week I got a call from a number I didn’t recognize, and when I answered, I didn’t say hello, I said, “Elyse?” People are connected. We are all so totally connected to each other and to every living thing around us. The clichés about “gone but not forgotten” and “small worlds” and people needing to connect are true. Elyse stayed with me for a week before she took a flight to Australia, where she was going to work in a clinic. I miss her, but the missing is a good feeling.

come write a history of Saint John’s for the institution’s 50th anniversary. Last week, Sister Maureen sat down with the Daily Press to discuss her work at the hospital, teaching in the Midwest, politics and growing up Catholic in a segregated America. What do you do at Saint John’s? “I enjoy what I do here. I write poetry, a lot of poetry, and I write for my religious community, and I write for stuff here at the hospital, the hospital magazine, and I visit patients, and I visit

employees. It’s almost like constantly running for office. I see if people are happy, and try to get people to realize the importance of the mission of the hospital and what we are about. I love doing it.” What does Saint John’s mission mean to you? “There’s a story from the second World War. I’m not sure if it’s true, but I always loved it. Some soldiers were going to an Italian town that had been terribly bombed, and they saw a statue of our Lord. The arms were broken off, and one of the soldiers stuck a note at the bottom of the statue that said, ‘Now, I have no hands but yours.’ “We have to be God’s hands. We have

to revere each person as someone special, created by God and loved by God. Each person has the spark of the divine in them, and we have to find it. Now, it can be pretty well hidden some time. We used to have this old nun that said, ‘God is a rascal, and he loves to hide.’ A lot of life is playing hide and seek, looking for the good in the other person. “I don’t have a medical background. I have some medical knowledge because I’ve been ill for years with multiple sclerosis, but there are universal truths that affect everybody. Everybody wants to feel valued. Everybody wants to feel that someone cares about them personally, and that someone will be there to help them and defend them. We have to be that for them. “And I like meeting people. It’s fascinating all the people we have here. We have employees from so many different cultures, and you learn all kinds of things about the different cultures. If a client comes in and can only speak one language, we can find an employee to speak with them. “One day there was this little man in the hall, and he gave me a sheet of paper that had a name on it. I looked up the name and found out what room he was in, but I could tell while I was talking to him that he hadn’t the foggiest idea what I was saying. I thought he was Hispanic, so I grabbed a Hispanic employee. He turned and said, ‘It’s not Spanish, but I think I know someone who can help.’ He called one of the units, and this man came who could speak Portuguese. He spoke to the man, and the man just wept. He was so relieved to have someone talk to him in his language.” As a writer and avid reader, how did your interest in English begin? “My mother did not believe in school. She thought school dulled your mind, but she believed madly in education. My parents would have these contests, poetry contests and writing contests. You would have a 6-year-old prize. You had an 8year-old prize, a 9-year-old prize, and I didn’t realize ’til I was an adult—shows you I was a slow learner—that you were the only contestant. When we wrote our poems and submitted them, our mother typed them up on pretty paper, and my father hung them up on the wall—we had quite a good art collection—with the paintings. We just thought we were the cat’s meow. “My first poem was, ‘Cat’s have kittens. Gloves have mittens,’ which shows a strange view of human, or really inanimate, sexuality.” You had art contests as well? “We did have art contests, which I was just terrible at. I would still get a prize, but I looked at what some of my siblings were doing, and I could tell I wasn’t very good. My younger brother, Frank, would paint these elaborate pictures of the Civil War. He just loved the Civil War. “I mean, when we were kids in Arkansas, people talked about the Civil War like it happened last Wednesday. The South had a long time getting over the Civil War, and you kind of grew up thinking it was fought down in the next neighborhood.” What was it like growing up with nine siblings? “You had these moments wanting to be an only child. My best friend was an only child, and I could never figure out why she wanted to come play at our house when we were kids. I had five brothers,

whom I cheerfully loathed, and I always wanted to go to her house, because no one ever messed with her things. Everything was always neat and orderly. But it was a happy childhood. You grew up in a mob scene. You always had someone to play with or fight with or plot with. “We lived in a neighborhood of big houses and jillions of kids, and it was a world where you played outside after supper. When the streetlights went on, every child automatically turned toward home cause if you didn’t you’d hear the fathers start to call the names. If our father called the whole family—‘Therese, Pan, Rosaleen, Brenda, John, Kevin, Ricky, Maureen and Frank’—you knew the world was coming to an end. One of the 10 of you would be annihilated. “We were brought up reading and writing, and we were brought up with a great deal of intellectual freedom, being allowed to challenge and being challenged when you said something. And we were made politically aware. Oh Lord, we spent presidential elections glued to the radio.” What was your family like politically? “Democrat. We were liberal and, in some ways, ahead of our time. My father was from Northern Ireland, and he was exiled by the British, sent with the clothes on his back to Canada. He was involved in Sinn Fein, the Irish revolutionary party, so he was exiled. “His life was to go back go Ireland and free Ireland. We’re talking about someone who used to sing, ‘God save Ireland, cry we all, we all. God save Ireland, cry we.’ Every Sunday afternoon all the Irish would gather at our house for high tea and talk about how they were going to free Ireland. Some of them were in their 70s and 80s, and we kind of thought maybe the Fitzgerald boys, as they were called, were not going to make it over to Ireland. “Patriotism was very big, American and Irish. Some newspaper editor once wrote, ‘My country, right or wrong,’ and my father used to say if your country was wrong you had to challenge it, and I think Democrats do. “In the South, being anti-segregation was really almost a dangerous thing. The Ku Klux Klan burned a cross in our front yard one night. I woke up my parents and was like, ‘There’s this beautiful cross in the front yard. It’s got fire on it.’ My mother was like, ‘Oh, my God,’ and ran to make sure all the doors and windows were locked. “The neighbors did not like that mother and daddy treated their servants so well. We were Catholic, and people didn’t like Catholics. There was this sort of polite bigotry.” Well, cross burning doesn’t seem that polite. How did it come to that? “We had servants, and my mother gave them two days off a week, and she paid higher wages than the other families, and that was it. My mother used to say, ‘Don’t think it’s all because we’re Catholic and because of the servants. You children are something worth burning a cross for some days.’ Well, we were wild. “Neighborhoods had what they call covenants, and when you bought a house you were to sign the covenant that said you would not allow Jews or negroes or any other racial group in your home and that you would not sell your house or rent to any of those groups. My father wouldn’t sign the covenant, but he was prominent enough they had to sell to him anySee PROFILES, page 7

way. “We could not join the country club, because we were Catholic. Everybody was very cordial the day we met after the cross burning. I’m sure when they met Daddy downtown, they were all, ‘Well hello John. How are you?’ And he’d say, ‘Well, hello Tom,’ even though Tom had maybe set his lawn on fire last night.” Why did you become a nun? “Well, I went to Saint Mary College in Leavenworth, Kan., which is a college our community Sisters of Charity run, and I was very impressed with the nuns. They were very common sense, and they really liked each other. You could tell. There was this kind of family spirit among them, and they challenged us intellectually and in every way. We lived in a segregated world, and my parents had always said segregation was wrong, but your parents say something, and you kind of listen with half an ear. I got to college, and the sisters made us think. They made us realize that as women we had a tremendous obligation to the world, whether you were a wife or a mother or a single woman or a sister, you had an obligation to try and make the world better. “I joined the convent thinking, well, I’ll stay six months. Then it was, ‘I’ll stay a year.’ I’ve been in 53 years.” Why the uncertainty at first? “There were things I liked. There were things I didn’t like. A disciplined life is very hard when you’ve been the youngest

in a large family, because you get spoiled by the older ones. So when you join the community, you find that we’re all treated alike. Just because you’re that sweet little baby in the family doesn’t mean you’re any different. But the moment I started teaching I knew that this was where I belonged. “You give up having your own family, but I love the freedom of being able to pick up and go wherever I was needed. You’d be teaching in Topeka one year where the next year you might be in Billings, Mont. I’m able to pick up and pack up and scoot off and go do what needs to be done.” Would you have liked to start a family? “This is going to sound ridiculous. I never minded not having children. I was raised in a big family with nieces and nephews all over the place. There were grandkids while I was still in school. I would love to be a grandmother. To have grandchildren would be so much fun. I think there’s nothing in the world as marvelous as a 2 1/2-year-old mind. You learn more in the first six years of your life than you learn in all the rest after. A baby, 2 1/2, is so open to everything.” Why did you leave teaching to work at Saint John’s? “Well, I taught for years. I have multiple sclerosis, and my health began to fail. It isn’t fair to kids if you’re in and out of the hospital all the time, and in my last year I asked the kids who had real learning problems. They weren’t retarded or special, but every school’s got kids who for one reason or another can’t learn. I just ate them alive. I loved them. You’d hear

Sister Maureen Craig Born: August 15, 1933, in Little Rock, Ark. Education: English major and history minor from the University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, Kan. Hobbies: Reading and jigsaw puzzles. Salary: Donated services to the hospital. Family: Older siblings Bill, Therese, Pan, Rosaleen, Brenda, John, Kevin and Ricky; younger brother, Frank. Aspirations: “Staying around and doing what I do as long as I’m physically able.” about their families and their lives, and you just thought ‘How do you even get up in the morning and put your shoes on, let alone go to school?’ “I’d always taught, so they asked me to come out and write a book. I thought, well sure, I’ll write a book. Well, my word, did I ever find out the real truth. Writing a book is very difficult. Writing a history is horribly difficult, cause you have to tell the truth and do all these interviews. For every statement you make, you have to have two oral sources and two written sources, and people’s memories are never the same. The best day in the world was somebody else’s worst. “This book came out for the 50th jubilee of the hospital. I enjoyed it. I was very relieved when it was over. It was ironic, ’92 was this kind of high point, and then we had the earthquake. “We had to close for 11 months. When we reopened, and it was like opening a new place. In a way it was wonderful, and in a way it was very difficult. People

expected things to be just like before, and things are never how they used to be.” How do you think Santa Monica has changed? “We always believed Santa Monica had a wonderful future. It was a darling little town, and then it’s become a great big town now. People that have been here a long time, forever and a day and not just at Saint John’s, kind of mourn the loss of the small town they grew up in, but it has a lot of wonderful opportunities. “We like being in this community. We work hard for this community. We do all kinds of charitable work, and I’m impressed by the number of our employees who work at shelters, who leave here at the end of a shift and go to shelters. A lot of our employees are social workers, and there’s a real sense of going out and helping the community.” What’s your favorite thing about Santa Monica? “The ocean. As someone who came from the Midwest and the South, I used to call it the river until people correct me. ‘Oh, it’s an ocean.’ And I like the way the town looks. It’s just fascinating to me that you get winter here with sunshine and no snow. I like the people.” Your least favorite? “We have a tremendous problem with the homeless, with homeless people. That’s something we do that’s really degrading, saying the homeless. They are homeless people. We can’t seem to reach a solution. I’d like to see more low-cost housing, but I don’t know the solution and that’s what bothers me.”

Harris set state and national records on the track FREEDOM, from page 1

of both items ended up at a rehabilitation center for chemical dependency near the intersection of Pico and Lincoln boulevards, where Harris was living. Armed with a sketch of the kidnapper, police questioned residents of the facility and eventually were led to Harris, a recovering cocaine addict with nearly a year of sobriety. Investigators then assembled what is called a “six pack,” or a photo lineup. The victim positively identified Harris, along with two other men randomly included in the lineup. Based on that evidence, a judge issued an arrest warrant, and Harris was taken into custody. Prosecutors levied seven felony charges against Harris, who faced a maximum sentence of life, plus 16 years. “It was a nightmare,” Harris said. “I literally woke up at Santa Monica Jail and pinched myself because I thought it was a dream — but it wasn’t.”

VEERING OFF COURSE Harris is the youngest of six children. He was raised in Compton and moved to Perris, Calif., to live with his grandmother at age 14 after his mother died from congestive heart failure. His father died of a brain aneurysm when Harris was 3. A standout track star who set state and national records, Harris earned a scholarship to Iowa State, where he played defensive back for the football team and continued to compete on the track. In 1984, at age 18, Harris competed in the Olympics against track greats Carl Lewis and Edwin Moses. He captured the silver medal in the 400-meter hurdles finals. Harris continued to run and play football, but in 1988 he tore a hamstring a week before the Olympic trials. He missed making the team by just 16/100 of a second. Shortly afterward, he tried freebasing cocaine for the first time. “When I didn’t make the team in ’88, that was a crushing blow for me,” said Harris, who earlier that year had been offered a position with the Los Angeles Rams that he declined because the pay was less than what he received through corporate track endorsements. Though he developed a cocaine addiction quickly, Harris continued competing and held on to his lucrative sponsorships. In 1992, he was poised for another Olympic appearance. Then his addiction started taking its toll: Harris tested positive for cocaine and was disqualified from the Olympics. He struggled on and off with his addiction, but, after failing a second test in 1996, Harris was banned for life from competing in the Olympics. After working four years as an insurance adjuster and personal trainer in Des Moines, Iowa, Harris moved back to California in 2000 and began work as a track coach at Perris High School. He fell off the wagon again and spent a year from 2002 to 2003 essentially homeless in Long Beach, often sleeping on the unemployment office’s steps, using cocaine as often as possible, alienating himself from relatives. Harris contends he never resorted to crime while homeless. He said he worked the occasional odd job, mostly living off of unemployment checks and royalties from training videos he produced in 2000. When he finally ventured north to stay with family, though, Harris took a ring from one of his sisters so he could sell it to buy cocaine. She responded with what substance-abuse

counselors call “tough love.” “Instead of giving me a slap on the wrist, she called the cops,” Harris said. “I underestimated how much she loves me. In hindsight, she did me a favor.”

SOBER IN SANTA MONICA A judge in January of 2004 ordered Harris to complete a rehabilitation program. Harris spent four months at the Salvation Army and three months at a small facility in the Santa Monica Mountains before ending up at the CLARE Foundation in Santa Monica, where he had lived for several months before his arrest. Harris already had completed his obligation to the courts, but stayed at CLARE voluntarily, and was paying rent while working full-time at Better Body Maker on Santa Monica Boulevard, where he was a personal trainer earning $80 an hour. Then came the arrest. Police stopped Harris before dawn on Nov. 10 as he was preparing to ride his bike to work. He was handcuffed and taken to jail. “A plain-clothes car rolled up on me, and I thought I was going to get shot at first,” said Harris, who said more than 10 patrol cars were on scene for the arrest. “I thought, ‘What is this all about?’ and they wouldn’t tell me.” Knowing he had done no wrong and not realizing he was embarking on a twomonth struggle with the criminal court system, Harris said he cooperated with detectives. Detectives spoke with Harris for several hours that day and took a saliva swab from him, knowing DNA might be recovered from the kidnapper’s hat and shirt, according to Santa Monica Police Department Lt. Ray Cooper. When the DNA tests returned several weeks later, in early December, Harris and his public defender thought they had a clear victory. The hat and shirt both contained the DNA of Alonzo Taylor, a three-strike criminal who had been arrested in East Los Angeles shortly after the second kidnapping for allegedly trying to steal a car. Taylor had a history of burglary arrests. In 1991, he was sentenced to three years and four months in prison for firstdegree burglary. In 1994, he was sentenced to 12 years for the same offense, according to records from the California Department of Corrections. What’s more, Taylor in an earlier burglary had used a syringe as his weapon, as was done in the Santa Monica kidnappings, Huey said. The two men also share similar physical characteristics, which lawyers suggested might explain why Harris was identified in the photographic lineup. Taylor stands at 6 feet 4 inches and weighs 218 pounds. Harris is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 200 pounds, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department records show. Both men are black. THE FIGHT OF HIS LIFE Despite the emergence of a new suspect, prosecutors refused to drop the charges against Harris. Deputy District Attorneys Kelly Fritz and Scott Millington said that although the DNA evidence suggested Taylor was the kidnapper, he might have been conspiring with Harris. The victim and eyewitnesses saw only one kidnapper, but that person reportedly threatened the victim by saying he had two accomplices who would burn down her house if she didn’t cooperate, prosecutors said. What’s more, prosecutors argued,

John Wood/Daily Press LOOKING AHEAD: Harris is angry and considering his legal options after spending two months in prison on kidnapping charges that later were dropped.

Harris could have used the kidnapper’s hat and shirt as a decoy to throw off police. At the time, they did not know whether the DNA recovered from the hat and shirt belonged to a friend or neighbor of Harris’. It was later found Taylor did not live at CLARE or know Harris. Prosecutors also said evidence was collected from Harris’ room that linked him to the kidnappings. The evidence included a pair of white sneakers, a screwdriver and a set of commemorative coins. The victim said her attacker had threatened her with a screwdriver, had taken a set of coins and was wearing white tennis shoes. “We have sufficient evidence” to go to trial, Fritz told the court on Dec. 8. Huey, Harris’ public defender, was shocked. “I don’t know what they’re thinking,” he said at the time. “They have evidence that completely exonerates Mr. Harris, and yet they want to proceed with this.” Huey also criticized the supporting evidence cited by prosecutors. Most people have screwdrivers, he said, adding that Harris was a personal trainer and naturally would own white sneakers. As to the coins, Huey said they belonged to one of four other people sharing Harris’ living space, adding the coin set did not match the one that was taken from the victim’s home.

“At the end of the day, there was absolutely nothing,” Huey said last week. “It’s like walking into your house and scooping up everything, and trying to connect it to a robbery. You could have money lying on your dresser, and they could say, ‘That money belongs to the victim, and this is the fruit of your robbery.’ They were coming up with whatever they could.” Still, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Katherine Mader refused to dismiss the case, or reduce Harris’ $1.44 million bail. She cited as her reasons the possibility that Harris might have been working as an accomplice with Taylor, and the positive eyewitness identifications. Though the victim picked three men as possibly the kidnapper from the photographic lineup, two other eyewitnesses had chosen only Harris. Harris was shattered by the judge’s refusal. In an inmate conference area at the Airport Courthouse near LAX, he yelled at Huey out of frustration, demanding to know why the DNA evidence was not enough to set him free. Huey was outraged too, and reminded Harris he was doing all he could. It was the only time the two men sparred. In the courtroom, two of Harris’ sisters See FREEDOM, page 9

sobbed quietly, saying they couldn’t stand to see their little brother in a jail-issued jumpsuit, hands bound. “He didn’t do this,” said Wanda Burns, a 41-year-old nursing assistant and Harris’ older sister. “Danny was clean. He was good. Everyone was proud of him.” The weeks behind bars wore on Harris. He would later say that when the DNA evidence didn’t exonerate him, he dropped to a new low. The court hearings continued, and his days were spent transferring from a cell downtown into a holding cell, onto a bus and into another holding cell at the Airport Courthouse. Harris would wake as early as 3 a.m. and often not return until 10 p.m. “I just wanted to get up and scream at that point,” he said. “It was the rest of my life. I couldn’t see myself being in jail for the rest of my life for something I didn’t do. I was really depressed. There were times when I didn’t know if I was going to make it through the day.” As Huey prepared for a preliminary hearing, when he hoped to persuade the judge not to proceed with the case, more evidence was discovered sometime in mid December. This time it was a glove found at the scene that investigators believed belonged to the kidnapper. It was sent to the crime lab, where it underwent testing for DNA. None was recovered. By then, nearly two months had passed. Huey had delayed calling for a live police lineup because he hoped the glove would contain Taylor’s DNA and prosecutors would drop the charges. Had he proceeded with a live lineup before then, there was too big a chance the eyewitnesses would identify Harris out of rote memory, after having identified him in the photo lineup. Now it was the only option left. On Jan. 5, two days before the preliminary hearing was set to begin, two live police lineups were conducted at the Twin Towers county jail in downtown Los Angeles. In one, Harris stood with five other inmates. In the other, Taylor stood with five different inmates. The victim singled out Taylor.

APOLOGY FROM THE BENCH Two days later the charges were dismissed against Harris. Saying innocent people sometimes get trapped in the legal system, Judge Mader apologized to Harris. “I know you’ve been in for a while … and I apologize on behalf of the court system for having you in for this length of time,” Judge Mader said at the Jan. 7 hearing. Harris turned to a group of family and friends sitting in the courtroom, smiled and mouthed the words, “I’m

coming home.” Rather than blame prosecutors or police, Huey faulted the identification process used by investigators. He argued there is too much room for error in photo lineups. “He is and always was innocent,” Huey said outside the courtroom after the charges were dropped. “It highlights the problem with the photo identification, because when these witnesses got the chance to actually see these people live, the correct person was identified and the innocent person was excluded. “If there’s sloppiness on the part of law enforcement, that’s the sloppiness,” Huey later added. “It just highlights how dangerous photographic six packs are.” Asked if any explanation had been offered for how the police hounds ended up at Harris’ room, Huey replied, “Not that I’m aware of — and it’s awfully hard to cross examine a dog.” Lt. Cooper said last week the investigation into the kidnappings was ongoing and no charges had been filed against Taylor. Cooper declined to discuss the case further or provide an explanation for why Taylor had not been charged. Santa Monica Police Chief James T. Butts Jr. defended the work done by his department, saying officers were thorough and their police work followed the book. It would have been derelict not to assemble the information and give it to a judge for an arrest warrant, said Butts, adding it would have been negligent not to then file the case with the District Attorney’s Office. “In this case, all those levels felt it was probable cause,” Butts said. “So you can’t call this a mistake.”

ONE DAY AT A TIME Harris now rents a room in a sober-living apartment complex in Venice. He rode his mountain bike to Joe’s Diner on Main Street last week to share his story, recalling the events of the last few months over a tuna melt and a glass of lemonade. In spending two months in custody, Harris said, “My whole life was turned upside down. My job was gone. My apartment was gone. My things were taken ... I’m in the process now of putting it back together.” Harris says he is at a loss for strength, and for patience. For help, he meets regularly with a support group for recovering addicts, and he speaks often with his sisters and his addiction sponsor. In the last 10 years, Harris said he has been sober for more than a year four different times. This time, he wants to make it permanent. He also hopes to get therapy for the abuses he suffered in jail. Harris had never served time before the kidnap-

ping arrest, except as a young man when he spent three days in a holding cell for driving 155 miles per hour in a 55 zone, police records show. The recent incarceration, however, placed Harris among some of the most violent criminals in Los Angeles. His approach of trying to stick to himself and not engage the other prisoners didn’t work. “I was beat up, tied up and really just singled out because I’m not a gangster or a thug,” he said. “I don’t carry myself like that, and I certainly don’t talk like that. I’m just different.” Harris has picked up part-time work as a personal trainer back at Better Body Maker and said he is considering filing a lawsuit — or lawsuits — for the way he was treated by the system and by the other inmates. Still, he realizes that success in a civil courtroom would only do so much for him. Harris also realizes he must work through his anger. Had Taylor’s DNA not been in the police database, Harris thinks he still would be in custody. “I’m not a violent person, but God, I have never been so angry in my life as I am now,” Harris said. “It’s really hard ... For a person like myself, it’s a great excuse to go and get high, and that’s not something I want to do.” Like many recovering addicts, Harris approaches life one day at a time. “I don’t know, I don’t even look out beyond this week,” he said. “Sometimes I wake up and I feel like I could do anything. Sometimes I wake up and I feel like my legs have been cut off. I try to keep things as simple as I can and leave things right there. “I’ve got a long way to go, put it like that,” Harris continued. “I think I’m a long way from being well from this experience — scars heal, though.”

Arraignment delayed for suspect in train wreck BY MICHAEL R. BLOOD Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES — A troubled handyman charged with murder for allegedly causing a commuter train collision that left 11 people dead appeared in court for the first time Friday as his attorney warned a rush to judgment could poison the case. “Emotions are running high right now and I’m sensing a mentality out there I almost want to call a lynch-mob mentality,” attorney Eric Chase told reporters after a brief hearing in which an arraignment for the Juan Manuel Alvarez was delayed until Feb. 15. “I’m hoping that that calms down a little bit in the days to come and the people who are making the decisions about Mr. Alvarez’s life, about the death penalty in the case ... just take a step back and think about the consequences of their actions,” Chase said. Alvarez, 25, alleged to be a drug abuser and barred by a court from having contact with his wife, is charged with abandoning a sport utility vehicle on Metrolink rail tracks in Glendale early Wednesday in a botched suicide attempt. A Los Angeles-bound train rammed the empty vehicle, setting off a chain-reaction collision with a second train. In addition to the deaths, nearly 200 people were injured. Most of those hospitalized were released, but at least 22 patients remained in six Los Angeles-area hospitals as of Friday. Three patients were listed in critical condition. Prosecutors have not said if they will seek the death penalty if Alvarez is convicted. The case “could possibly call for the death penalty. Our office has a well-established, very formal procedure in determining whether we ask for the death penalty in any case,” said Deputy District Attorney Patrick Dixon.

Alvarez, his dark ponytail stretching down his back, was brought to court in a hospital smock, shackled and with bandages on his wrists. He suffered self-inflicted wounds by stabbing himself with a pair of scissors after the crash, and his attorney said his injuries include a collapsed lung. Asked by a court commissioner if he agreed to the delay, Alvarez said in a soft voice, “Yes, sir.” He said nothing else. Alvarez was charged with 10 counts of murder before the discovery of an 11th body. An amended complaint filed Friday added the 11th count, as well as confirmed names of the victims. The Glendale police chief described Alvarez earlier in the week as “deranged” and District Attorney Steve Cooley, whose prosecutors charged Alvarez, has said that being despondent was not a defense. The allegations against Alvarez include a so-called special circumstance of murder by derailment, which could allow the death penalty if he is convicted. Although Chase suggested prosecutors were moving too swiftly with charges, Jean Rosenbluth, a former federal prosecutor who teaches at the University of Southern California Law School, said the government appeared eager to make a blunt public statement about Alvarez’s alleged conduct. The charges were filed quickly but “the flip side of that is the prosecution ... meant to send a message. Metrolink has to do something to stop people from doing things like this,” Rosenbluth said. New information about Alvarez’s alleged actions emerged Friday. According to newspaper reports, after the crash he ran to the front porch of a nearby home and used scissors to stab himself and slash his wrists. A woman in the house called 911, and Alvarez told

paramedics what had happened as he was being rushed to a hospital. They radioed police, who arrested him. The woman was his landlord, identified as Reyna Barcena, according to KNBC-TV. “He had a pair of scissors and he was stabbing himself in the heart with it,” she told the news station. “He was just totally full of blood. It was something very sad. He was mumbling that he caused many people to die. But I didn’t understand. I didn’t know what was happening. I had no idea.” At the crash site, Union Pacific freights began resuming runs Friday night after rails and signals were repaired, said Metrolink spokeswoman Denise Tyrrell. Metrolink passenger service was expected to resume Monday morning. David Solow, chief executive of the Metrolink system said that a preliminary investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board indicated that all equipment on both commuter trains was “working as intended.” “The preliminary investigation by the NTSB given to us last night was that everything we did was right,” he said. “Our crew tried to get as many people to hold on,” he said. “They did their jobs,” he said. The train that struck the SUV was being pushed from the rear by its locomotive while being operated at the leading end from a “cab-car.” That configuration eliminates the need to switch the locomotive from end to end. But critics say always having a massive locomotive in front reduces the chance of derailment in such situations. “Our position is that a cab car with a forward engine is a safe operation,” Solow said, saying the practice was common throughout the United States and the world.

Iraqi-Americans vote in California with sense of optimism BY BEN FOX Associated Press Writer

IRVINE, Calif. — They had to drive for six hours and have their car searched twice at security checkpoints, but the elderly father and his grown son didn’t seem to mind Friday as they cast ballots for Iraq’s new assembly, an election that neither man ever expected in their lifetimes. “I cannot express it in words. It is an exhilaration for me,” said Eshoo Bahribeh, 84, as he paused with his weight on his cane outside the polling place on a decommissioned Marine base in Southern California where he

voted along with hundreds of other Iraqi expatriates. Leo Bahribeh, 46, who drove with his father from their home in Redwood City, Calif., said they never even considered sitting out on a chance to help choose the 275member assembly that will draft Iraq’s new constitution. “If we don’t vote, who else would come to define the future of Iraq? It’s very important to take this step toward democracy,” the son said. The two men were among an estimated 700 to 800 voters that election officials expected to cast ballots on the first of three days of voting at the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station — the only polling place for

Iraqi expatriates in the western United States. Nearly 3,900 expatriates had registered to vote at El Toro. Those who came on the first day arrived in vehicle caravans, with their families, or on their own, some driving through the night and skipping a day of work. Many said they were voting with a sense of pride in their heritage and optimism about the future. “It’s beautiful, a dream come true,” said Sami al Jabiri, 36, who drove from Phoenix with his wife and two young children to cast his vote. “The most beautiful words in the English language can’t describe my feelings today.” Others said their joy was tempered by thoughts of what is happening in their homeland. “It’s bittersweet in a way because we are voting here in this wonderful environment with all this security and yet we have relatives back home who fear to go out because of the explosions and the bombs,” said Yousif Jawad, 26, a college student in Los Angeles. Around the United States, nearly 26,000 people have registered to vote at one of the five polling places. Expatriates are also casting ballots in 13 other countries during through Sunday. In Iraq and around the globe, the voting has been a cause for jubilation among Iraqis who have long been tormented under Saddam, the dictator ousted by the U.S.-led invasion. Still, only about 10 percent of the 240,000 Iraqi expatriates in the United States were expected to cast ballots. In interviews, some voters said that many of their fellow expatriates were unable to take the time off work to come to a faraway polling place twice — once to register, another time to vote. Sargon Dedesho, who led a caravan of Iraqi Christians from Modesto, Calif., said the election authorities should have created polling place for the estimated 20,000 expatriates who live in California’s Central Valley region. He said he planned to return Saturday with some 400 voters. The distance posed little problem for Nawzad Othman, 64, who flew in the morning to John Wayne Airport in Orange County from his home in Portland and returned hours later. “This is huge. The symbolism is very powerful,” said Othman, an Iraqi Kurd born in the northern city of Erbil and now president of an engineering and architectural design firm. “I tell friends that this is just the beginning. ... We’re all extremely hopeful and optimistic for Iraq. This is a momentous moment for all Iraqis.”

Child killers walk free after court vacates convictions BY GENE JOHNSON Associated Press Writer

SEATTLE — Yvonne Roberts used to take comfort in knowing the killer of her 3-year-old son was behind bars. That was before two recent state Supreme Court decisions let him out this month, four decades early. And that man, David Crane, isn’t alone. Noreen Erlandson served 12 years instead of 40 for killing her 2year-old daughter, and Keith Whitling was supposed to serve another 15 for the death of his 6-week-old girl in 1992. In all, at least two dozen child killers could end up walking after the court found that they were improperly convicted. “I’ll never accept it,” said Roberts, as she sobbed in a recent interview. “These justices need to go. They didn’t just create a loophole; they opened the cell door to these killers.” The court’s rulings concerned the state’s law on felony murder, defined as a homicide that occurs — even by accident — during or “in furtherance of” another felony, such as robbery. For decades, prosecutors charged defendants with second-degree felony murder if an assault led to someone’s death. In 2003, the court decided that the law didn’t allow for felony murder charges in cases of assault. In a 5-4 ruling, the majority reasoned that in such cases, the assault and the homicide are the same act: The homicide does not occur “in furtherance of” assault — it is the assault. Last fall, it said it was applying the decision retroactively. The result was to invalidate felony murder convictions based on assaults from 1976 to 2003, when the Legislature changed the law to explicitly allow seconddegree murder charges in fatal assault cases. About 280 prisoners may be entitled to have their convictions vacated, as well as an unknown number of people who already served their time. Prosecutors face the choice of filing new charges of manslaughter, which carries a lesser penalty; finding another felony on which to base a felony murder charge; or trying to prove that the killing was intentional — a daunting task years after the fact. In cases where children were impulsively shaken or

beaten to death, intent is especially difficult to prove. “When a court overturns 30 years of precedent to set hundreds of murderers free, that’s a terrible ruling,” said Snohomish County Deputy Prosecutor Seth Fine. “The court doesn’t seem to recognize the impact this is having on victims’ family members — how wrenching it is to have these cases reopened years or decades after they were closed.” Crane’s murder conviction for killing 3-year-old Steven Collins in 1986 was vacated earlier this month, and prosecutors could only file manslaughter charges. Though Crane has long insisted on his innocence, he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge, was sentenced to 20 years — not exactly a slap on the wrist, his lawyer noted — and walked free, with credit for good behavior. Crane declined to be interviewed for this story. “Sex offenders have to register where they’re at,” said Roberts, a 45-year-old waitress from Clinton. “David Crane doesn’t. How many more children is he going to have access to? It’s spitting on the memory of my son.” Defense attorneys argued that in many cases, convicting someone of murder when the intent to kill wasn’t proved resulted in unfairly long sentences. Keith Whitling, of Puyallup, was 21 and admittedly unprepared for the stresses of parenthood when he shook his crying baby to death in 1992. Last month his murder conviction was vacated, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter, and he was released 15 years ahead of schedule. In a phone interview from central California, where he was helping his sister and her husband refurbish their church, Whitling said he doesn’t feel worthy of his second chance at life, but is honored to have it. “For the victims’ families having to rehash this, it’s awful. I don’t have any answers for them. I’m sorry for their loss,” Whitling said. “I talked my own family, and if they wouldn’t have been supportive, I don’t know if I would have pursued my own release in the manner I did. “There’s not a day I don’t wake up feeling that, that I caused the loss of my daughter. I would have a beautiful 13-year-old today, but I don’t.” Ninety-nine of the cases — 10 involving child killers

— are in King County, where the prosecutor’s office has set up a team of 10 lawyers to deal with them. “I think it’s crazy and it’s very unfortunate,” said Senior Deputy Prosecutor Melinda Young, who’s heading the team. “I’ve never heard of creating a unit to deal with a court decision.” The team will retry as many cases as it can, Young said. On Tuesday, her office refiled a murder charge against Jason Twyman, who was supposed to spend 25 years in prison for the beating death of Joey Levick in 1994. The office believes it can prove Twyman and another man intended to kill Levick when they beat him and left him in a ditch. Some counties are hoping to keep child killers behind bars by refiling second-degree felony murder charges against them. Instead of the charges being based on the felony of assault, they will be based on criminal mistreatment. Spokane County has already had one defendant go back to prison after pleading guilty to a charge refiled that way, and Clark County has tried the same approach — which requires prosecutors to show that the defendant withheld the child’s necessities of life. In cases where prosecutors can show a pattern of abuse, they could also seek a conviction of homicide by abuse.

Dispute over soldier’s body divides parents BY CHRISTINA ALMEIDA Associated Press Writer

LAS VEGAS — The horror was just beginning for Eleanor Dachtler when she received word her only son, Lance Cpl. Nicholas H. Anderson, had been killed during an insurgent attack in Iraq. Less than 24 hours later, distraught by her ex-husband’s plan to bury their son in another state, Dachtler found herself pleading with military officials to bring Anderson’s body home to Las Vegas. But after learning that a little-known military policy favors the older parent in such disputes and that the military had not required her son to have a will before deploying, Dachtler watched helplessly as her son was laid to rest some 266 miles away in Ventura, Calif. “I couldn’t believe that this was happening,” Dachtler said recently, as she sat in her Las Vegas home filled with photographs of her 19-year-old son. “I can’t go see him every week, talk to him. I want to go visit his grave and take him flowers.” Officials who deal with casualties say disagreements over a soldier’s burial are not uncommon, particularly if there has been a divorce. “I’m sure if you did some digging, you would find other instances of the situation we had with Lance Cpl. Anderson,” said Marine Corps Capt. William Ghilarducci, who assisted Dachtler after her son’s death. “That’s why this policy is in place.” Military officials said most disputes are resolved among family members. But experts acknowledge the possibility exists for more such conflicts as soldiers deploy and increasingly leave behind complicated family situations — divorces, remarriages and stepfamilies. “There is no question that these sorts of issues will become more common as divorces grow more numerous,” said Loren Thompson, a military analyst with the Lexington Institute, a defense think tank in Alexandria, Va. When Dachtler was first told her son had been killed Nov. 12, 2004, she assumed his body was being sent to Las Vegas, where Anderson had spent most of his childhood and had recently graduated from high school. But Marine Corps officials told Dachtler, 47, that his

body was being sent to his father in Southern California, where Anderson had spent summers and holidays. The Marine Corps determined Dachtler’s ex-husband, Albert Anderson, 58, was the primary next of kin authorized to handle the disposition of remains. The law says that without a spouse or child, the responsibility falls to the oldest surviving parent unless sole custody was granted by a court. “It’s a bad situation, and no one was happy with it,” said Bryan Driver, spokesman for the Marine Corps Casualty Assistance Branch in Quantico, Va. “The rules are what they are. We had to follow them.” Dachtler was outraged. “You can’t determine something like this by age,” she said. “You have to look at where they lived, where they spent their time. This was Nick’s home.” For Dachtler, a casino cocktail waitress who had primary custody of Anderson growing up, the decision was like losing her son twice. The pain was so unbearable that she left her son’s funeral before he was interred. “I refused to watch him being lowered into the ground,” Dachtler said, her eyes filling with tears. “Because that’s not where he was supposed to be.” When reached by telephone, Albert Anderson said he did not want to discuss the case out of respect for his son and the pain he felt over his death. “The policy that the Department of Defense has is very clear,” he said. The situation might have been avoided if Lance Cpl. Anderson had filled out a will or designated power of attorney. But the Marine Corps, along with the Army, Navy and Air Force, do not require it before deployment. “As far as actually having a will, no, that is not required,” Driver said. “But it is highly encouraged.” Each branch advises soldiers to complete the paperwork, using workshops and checklists to remind them. “However, it is up to airmen to decide what is best for their particular situation,” said Jennifer Stephens, an Air Force spokeswoman. “Obviously it’s in the best interests of the sailor and his family to do so, but we can’t order them to,” said Navy Lt. Kyle Raines. “It’s one less thing for you to worry about so you can focus on the mission at hand.” Defense Department spokesman Jim Turner said the

military cannot require a soldier to have a will, which is “a personal, private legal matter.” “Since it serves no military purpose, a military superior cannot order a subordinate to have a will or make a will,” Turner said from Washington. Even though a soldier provides next of kin contact information, absent a specific designation, the military law is used to determine who will be responsible for funeral arrangements. Civilian agencies such as the Clark County coroner’s office also rely on age when determining who should take custody of a body if there is no will or a dispute exists among family members. Because of the sensitivities involved in burying a loved one, Thompson said, a seemingly arbitrary law based on age might be the military’s only solution. Holding a hearing on a case-by-case basis to allow each parent to plead their case might be too painful and too lengthy a process. “You cannot divide a body,” Thompson said. “This is the way big bureaucracies deal with the tragedies of warfare when there is no better way.” Still shrouded in grief and a longing for her son, Dachtler has been collecting signatures and working with elected officials to either change the law or compel soldiers to designate someone to make burial decisions for them. “I don’t want to see anyone go through this.” Dachtler said, adding that times have changed since the law was enacted. “Back then, you can understand. Families were together. But this is now. It doesn’t work that way.” Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., has ordered her staff to study Dachtler’s case and is considering whether to request a review by the Defense Department or draft legislation to change the law, spokesman David Cherry said. “In every situation you can’t mandate a happy ending. The best hope you can do is to create a situation that is fair,” Cherry said. “In at least this case, the situation did not take into account the very human relationships involved.” Dachtler has hired a lawyer and is considering legal action to exhume her son’s body so it can be buried at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in nearby Boulder City. “I’d like to bring my baby home,” Dachtler said.

Farm chemical fire burns out; evacuations end By The Associated Press

GRANDVIEW, Wash. — A chemical fire that burned for nearly two days finally went out this weekend and authorities allowed hundreds of evacuated residents to return home. State and federal authorities continued to monitor air quality in the area, said Lt. Jim Keightley, spokesman for the State Patrol. “The fire is out. The building is gone,” Keightley said.

Now, he said, the focus was on “conducting more air and soil samples to make sure there’s no residual chemicals.” The fire broke out Wednesday afternoon in an insulated storage building at the Wilbur-Ellis Co., an agricultural chemical and fertilizer retail operation in this community of 8,500 about 40 miles southeast of Yakima. The blaze sent up a plume of toxic smoke. Hundreds of people were evacuated when heavy fog and clouds kept the smoke close to the ground.

MENTION THIS AD TO RECEIVE A FREE NETWORK ANALYSIS AND SECURITY

Authorities lifted the evacuation order at 6 p.m. Friday for about 400 residents who live in a half-mile zone around the fire scene. Many residents of a trailer park containing about 100 mobile homes — outside the evacuation zone — had also voluntarily evacuated because roadblocks cut off access to the park, Keightley said. They were allowed to return Friday morning. “The city of Grandview is back to normal,” Keightley said Friday night. The fire sent dozens of people complaining of skin irritation or respiratory problems to local hospitals. Several dozen people used a Red Cross shelter at the Sunnyside Community Center, and schools were closed Thursday and Friday. The cause of the fire remained under investigation. Authorities decided earlier to let the fire burn itself out rather than apply water that could increase the pollution risk and cleanup problems.

Coppola, Putin swap words of praise over tea By The Associated Press

MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin praised the works of director Francis Ford Coppola as the two met for tea at the Kremlin before Coppola received a film award. “In Russia your works are well known and highly valued,” Putin told Coppola during a televised portion of the meeting Saturday. He said he was not just referring to “The Godfather” — which is extremely popular in Russia — but also to films “that so accurately tell of the horrors of war.” Coppola, in turn, lauded Putin’s speech marking the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops, during which Putin said he was ashamed of anti-Semitism’s existence in Russia. “Excellent speech,” Coppola said. “But in person you look much younger than you did on TV.” Coppola was in Moscow to receive a Golden Eagle award from Russia’s National Academy of Cinematic Arts and Sciences for his contribution to world cinematography. Coppola gave Putin a DVD of “Lost in Translation,” for which his daughter, Sofia Coppola, won an Oscar for best original screenplay in 2004. Coppola told Putin that both he and his daughter had won their first Oscar at age 32, and the Russian president responded, “Now your granddaughter must do it.” NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Former NBA star Dennis Rodman said he has resolved a dispute with an industry group that accused him of using copyrighted music without permission at his California restaurant. Rodman has agreed to pay licensing fees back to

2002 and has signed a new agreement with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, his publicist, Shannon Barr, told the Los Angeles Times for Saturday’s editions. Rodman said he was unhappy about the ASCAP’s rule that commercial establishments must pay fees for the use of any of its eight million copyrighted songs and compositions performed live, played on jukeboxes or piped in from radio stations. “But hey, what can you do?” said Rodman, who has attracted publicity because of his brief marriage to Carmen Electra, wild partying and brushes with the law. “We are under new management now, and I have taken every precaution that things like this do not happen again,” he said in an e-mail to the Times. Rodman’s, formerly known as Josh Slocum’s, was the only California eatery named in a lawsuit filed by the ASCAP. The suit named restaurants in 15 states. A call to ASCAP Saturday was not immediately returned. ASCAP represents about 200,000 songwriters and composers who are paid royalties. The agency and Broadcast Music Inc. hold the licensing rights to the majority of popular songs. WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Neo-soul rock band Maroon 5 will perform the opening musical number at next month’s Grammy Awards. “It’s going to be awesome,” lead singer Adam Levine said Thursday. “We’re going to do ‘This Love’ unless they change it up on us and say, OK, ‘Superfreak.”’ Maroon 5 has earned two Grammy nominations for its debut album, “Songs About Jane,” which has sold more than eight million copies since its June 2002 release and was the seventh best-selling album in 2004.

The Grammies are televised Feb. 13. The band was also recently announced as the headliner on the 35-city Honda Civic Tour that begins March 11 in Los Angeles. Levine said the environmentally conscious group initially was reluctant to sign on with a corporate sponsor, but became enthusiastic because of the automaker’s hybrid car. “It’s really very personal and I don’t feel any shame,” he said. “We’re not going to have to tattoo Honda on our forehead.” Other bands scheduled to appear on the tour include Phantom Planet, the Donnas and the Thrills. PORT HURON, Mich. — A “Hollywood Graffiti” gown signed by more than 350 stars, including Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn, has kicked off the first leg of its world tour at a Michigan museum. The gown, designed by Randy McLaughlin and Jerry Skeels, was displayed at the Port Huron Museum Saturday and Sunday. The worldwide tour will take it to Trinidad and Tobago, India and Austria for Vienna’s Life Ball, one of Europe’s largest AIDS fund-raisers. In two years, the dress will be auctioned off for a minimum bid of $1 million, but McLaughlin said the final offer could be much higher. Proceeds from the gown’s sale will be used for AIDS research. McLaughlin and Skeels run Jeran Design in Los Angeles and have a shop in West Hollywood, Calif. Their work has been featured in magazines such as Esquire and Playboy. Last June, the pair received the fashion industry’s 2004 Golden Needle Humanitarian Award, honoring them for their support of AIDS awareness, education and prevention.
