DOWNTOWN, SM Who says there’s no history in Santa Monica?

Downtown Santa Monica. The Santa Monica Conservancy launched its new Downtown Walking Tours earlier this month after providing sneak peak tours every Saturday last month to a test audience of conservancy members. More than 120 people have taken the tours in the past month and a half, according to Ruthann Lehrer, member of the Santa Monica Conservancy who helped develop the tour along with conservancy board member Carol Lemlein. The idea to start a downtown walking tour came from a similar successful program with the Los Angeles Conservancy of which Lehrer was a director prior to coming

to Santa Monica. After receiving a grant from the Santa Monica City Council nine months ago to jump start the program, members of the conservancy began extensive research of the history of Downtown Santa Monica, reviewing city records and inventory of buildings, reading old newspaper articles and history books written about the area. Initially proposed as a monthly occurrence, the tours have been held on a weekly basis after more and more conservancy members volunteered to serve as docents. There are now 22 docents that have gone through six weeks of training11 SEE TOUR PAGE 11

SM renters take heed BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE AP Business Writer

CITYWIDE It could be a long summer for renters looking to secure Santa Monica digs. Fewer home sales are translating into higher apartment rents throughout the western United States, according to data released this week. Through March, apartment rents had climbed by at least 4 percent from the previous year in 13 of the 20 major Western markets surveyed each quarter by the research firm RealFacts Inc. The West’s most expensive rental market remained Los Angeles and Orange counties, where the average apartment went for $1,588 in March, a 7.2 percent increase from last year. Renting an average apartment now costs at least $1,000 per month in eight of the markets covered by RealFacts. The Seattle market joined the $1,000 club for the first time in March, propelled by a 9.1 percent increase from last year. All the other $1,000 apartment markets are in California. SEE RENT PAGE 13

HOT STUFF: Betty Rowland has been a burlesque dancer, published poet and tavern keeper. She poses here at her Lounge 217 in downtown.

COMMUNITYPROFILES BETTY ROWLAND

The next chapter for Rowland BY KEVIN HERRERA Daily Press Staff Writer

DOWNTOWN Goodness gracious, a “great ball of fire.” That was her much-deserved moniker during her days as one of burlesque’s biggest stars and it still fits today, more than 60 years later, for Betty Rowland continues to shine brightly, her spirit as fiery as her flaming red hair and sparkling red and blue eye lashes. At 91, Rowland still serves as a bartender at the downtown Santa Monica nightclub she owned for more than a decade. She is also a star in a feature-length documentary about her dancing days,

“Pretty Things,” and is anxiously awaiting the release of her second collection of poetry. She’s just as busy as ever these days and has no plans of taking five. “The best thing about it all is that I can stay dressed. In that business [burlesque], it seemed like I was always dressing,” Rowland said with a smile last week as she stood behind the bar at Lounge 217, formerly Mr. B’s, a popular watering hole that the Blackburn family left to Rowland more than 12 years ago. She now has two young partners who have taken over much of the business, but she never misses her morning shifts. “I used to write poetry and other things in between [burlesque] shows,”

Mariachi hotel is the answer BY ANDREW GLAZER Associated Press Writer

Rowland. “I like it, but I don’t think it’s going to be a career. It’s certainly a hobby and something to keep me occupied and put my mind to work, but this is where I spend most of my time. I like it because it’s kind of still show business.” Looking back, Rowland has many fond memories of her days on stage, when she was known as “Betty Rowland: Burlesque’s Ball of Fire,” (she once sued legendary producer Samuel Goldwyn for using “Ball of Fire” as a title for Howard Hawks’ picture starring Gary Cooper). She performed in New York and Los Angeles, traveled to France and

LOS ANGELES A trumpet note rattles Roberto Olmos from slipping into a satisfied slumber after a heaping plate of stewed prickly pears, carne asada and refried beans. But rather than pound the wall of his cramped room at the Boyle Hotel to quiet his neighbor, the 60-year-old musician nicknamed “El Gordo” slings an accordion over his bulging belly and plays along. Spontaneous jam sessions are commonplace at the 32-unit hotel, where thin walls, water-logged ceilings and a slipping foundation disguise the building’s rich history as a boarding house for mariachis.

Chatty cops should chide smokers Editor:

The officers on bikes on the Promenade don’t seem to even notice all the smokers. They seem to resent being reminded about the ban. Most often, they are busy talking to each other in groups of two and three, as they zip by smokers. So far, it seems like the smoking ban is like the dog and smoking ban at the beaches. You can light up right in front of a staffed lifeguard stand with your dogs running free. No matter if all beachgoers are dressed and there is no one in the water or even near the water as far as the eye can see, authorities will say “our primary role is life safety.” Yeah, like cell phone networking and exercising. Seems no one on the payrolls of government agencies wants to be an enforcer of environmental policies.

Leif Larsand Santa Monica

Land of the free, remember? Editor:

In response to Karina DeBeers’ letter of April 17 (“Columnist doesn’t represent readers”), what I find sad is DeBeers’ attempt to trade anti-Israel and anti-Jewish (yes, AIPAC members are American Jews) rhetoric for the anti-Muslim rhetoric which she rightly condemns. As a pro-Israel, pro-peace Jewish American, I support the right of all peoples to live in security and in peace.

Sonya Fox Sultan Santa Monica

Housing ‘victims’ are bogus Editor:

I just don’t have much sympathy for those two fellows who are claiming, erroneously in my view, that the city is discriminating against them (“Tough to find housing,” April 10). One unemployed man claims he was victimized when the city directed him to an affordable apartment in an area he doesn’t want to live in. And the other socalled “victim” bellyaches that the city would not change the operating hours and procedures everyone else has to follow just to suit his schedule. What a load of nonsense! I’m bewildered at this sense of entitlement some people in this community have, that exactly what you want must be handed to you when and how you want it. Firstly, most of the apartments owned by the community housing corporation are located in the Pico Neighborhood. This concentration has been a point of contention for some in this community for years. But it is what it is and where it is, and if you don’t want to live in that housing, as this fellow evidently did not, then you can always live on the streets — or Santa Barbara, as luck should have it. But stop whining when someone is offering you a handout. To the other fellow: Grow up and be a responsible adult. Do what the rest of us have to do — show up when you, and everyone else for that matter, is told to. Stop your griping.

transients on Santa Monica’s streets has increased almost threefold in the last decade to 2,800 nightly according to various cityfunded studies. Despite spending tens of millions of dollars on services, nothing seemed to be working, until now. There just may be light at the end of the tunnel. The Santa Monica Police Department’s Homeless Liaison Program team tipped me off about West Coast Care. “These guys have a phenomenal success rate and are getting even the chronically homeless off the streets," HLP officer, Robert Martinez told me. WCC is an independent outreach team with roots in San Francisco, whose different approach to homeless services has resulted in an awesome success rate. Ron Hooks, WCC’s Executive Director, invited me to join him and his partner, Ken Byrd, on their rounds last week. They ride bicycles to cover a lot of ground and carry granola bars, candies and water to give out. Five days a week, starting early in the morning on Venice Beach, the duo work their way up the boardwalk to the Pier and back to Main Street. They go back to their truck, load up again and head to Third Street, Palisades Park, Reed Park and Wilshire Boulevard. “Monday," Hooks said, “we talked to 101 people." They’ve been providing positive intervention by earning the trust and confidence of Santa Monica’s most visible transients. “We know everyone,” he says. And, he’s right. On a dreary Tuesday morning, south of the Pier, Hooks introduced me to Fat Man, Tarzan, Stanley and others. He asks in a soft Southern drawl, “How ya doin’? You OK? Need a granola bar? Water? When are you going to take me up on my offer?” Or, "Remember what we talked about?” “Got my card?” He says good-bye and we move on. According to Hooks, friendly daily reminders about choices and alternatives often speeds up the decision to change. Once a person decides to go forward, they need to be empowered with the proper resources to facilitate that change. Refreshingly, WCC is not about amassing a growing client base and providing ongoing services. They want the homeless to break the cycle and get the help they need where they have the best chance for a positive life outcome — by relocating to their own home town or with friends or family! Noting that only one of their homeless

“friends” is from Santa Monica, Hooks says people are far better off and more likely to break the cycle of homelessness or addiction when they’re in comfortable and familiar surroundings. "It’s almost impossible to start over, here,” he says noting that there’s little or no motivation to succeed because many have already fallen out of services, are constantly tempted by bad habits and experiencing a difficult living situation. WCC works with about 200 people on a regular basis. They’ll also provide personal items, first aid, food, information and referrals to local service providers. Hooks’ says success is in nudging people. “You’ve got to keep on ‘em. Encourage them. They eventually take me up on my offer or they move on." In 6-1/2 months, Hooks and Byrd have helped get 83 people off the streets and out of Santa Monica. Seventy-six people have received bus tickets back home to other parts of the country (including two to Mexico City) where they’re getting support. Fifty others have gone into local programs and a few have disappeared, left town or have been incarcerated. Hooks admits that the number of long term homeless has dropped, especially in Ocean Park and Reed and Palisades parks. “Even I can see there are not as many there as when we started," he relates. Hooks has a Ph.D. in counseling psychology and was executive director of Providence House, a drug and alcohol treatment center in San Francisco, before coming here. Hooks and Byrd are both ordained ministers although they don’t preach. WCC isn’t affiliated with any religious organization, although, “We’ll pray with someone if asked.” Even more amazing is that West Coast Care doesn’t receive a dime from the City of Santa Monica. Although they are applying for a city grant, all funding including transportation costs are presently coming from private donations and Northern California sources. “With city funding we could do a lot more,” he says. From what I’ve seen and heard, supporting West Coast Care would be one of the smartest things the city could do to get transients off our streets and the help they need. West Cost Care, a 501(c)(3) tax deductible nonprofit, has a website: www.westcoastcare.org for more information or to donate. BILL can be reached at mr.bilbau@gmail.com

Guest Commentary

mankind. The danger is not from acid rain, global warming, smog, or the logging of rain forests, as environmentalists would have us believe. The danger to mankind is from environmentalism. The fundamental goal of environmentalism is not clean air and clean water; rather, it is the demolition of technological/industrial civilization. Environmentalism’s goal is not the advancement of human health, human happiness, and human life; rather, it is a subhuman world where “nature” is worshipped like the totem of some primitive religion. In a nation founded on the pioneer spirit, environmentalists have made “development” an evil word. They inhibit or prohibit the development of Alaskan oil, offshore drilling, nuclear power--and every other practical form of energy. Housing, commerce, and jobs are sacrificed to spotted owls and snail darters. Medical research is sacrificed to the “rights” of mice. Logging is sacrificed to the “rights” of trees. No instance of the progress that brought man out of the cave is safe from the onslaught of those “protecting” the environment from man, whom they consider a rapist and despoiler by his very essence. Nature, they insist, has “intrinsic value,” to be revered for its own sake, irrespective of any benefit to man. As a consequence, man is to be prohibited from using nature for his own ends. Since nature supposedly has value and goodness in itself, any human action that changes the environment is necessarily immoral. Of course, environmentalists invoke the doctrine of intrinsic value not against wolves that eat sheep or beavers that gnaw trees; they invoke it only against man, only when man wants something. The ideal world of environmentalism is not twenty-first-century Western civilization; it is the Garden of Eden, a world with no human intervention in nature, a world without innovation or change, a world without effort, a world where survival is somehow guaranteed, a world where man has mystically merged with the “environment.” Had the environmentalist mentality prevailed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, we would have had no Industrial Revolution, a situation that consistent environmentalists would cheer-at least those few who might have managed to survive without the life-saving benefits of modern science and technology. The expressed goal of environmentalism is to prevent man from changing his environment, from intruding on nature. That is why

environmentalism is fundamentally anti-man. Intrusion is necessary for human survival. Only by intrusion can man avoid pestilence and famine. Only by intrusion can man control his life and project long-range goals. Intrusion improves the environment, if by “environment” one means the surroundings of man-the external material conditions of human life. Intrusion is a requirement of human nature. But in the environmentalists’ paean to “Nature,” human nature is omitted. For environmentalism, the “natural” world is a world without man. Man has no legitimate needs,but trees,ponds,and bacteria somehow do. They don’t mean it? Heed the words of the consistent environmentalists. “The ending of the human epoch on Earth,” writes philosopher Paul Taylor in Respect for Nature: A Theory of Environmental Ethics, “would most likely be greeted with a hearty ‘Good riddance!’” In a glowing review of Bill McKibben’s The End of Nature, biologist David M. Graber writes (Los Angeles Times, October 29, 1989): “Human happiness [is] not as important as a wild and healthy planet . . . . Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.” Such is the naked essence of environmentalism: it mourns the death of one whale or tree but actually welcomes the death of billions of people. A more malevolent, man-hating philosophy is unimaginable. The guiding principle of environmentalism is self-sacrifice, the sacrifice of longer lives, healthier lives, more prosperous lives, more enjoyable lives, i.e., the sacrifice of human lives. But an individual is not born in servitude. He has a moral right to live his own life for his own sake. He has no duty to sacrifice it to the needs of others and certainly not to the “needs” of the nonhuman. To save mankind from environmentalism, what’s needed is not the appeasing, compromising approach of those who urge a “balance” between the needs of man and the “needs” of the environment. To save mankind requires the wholesale rejection of environmentalism as hatred of science, technology, progress, and human life. To save mankind requires the return to a philosophy of reason and individualism, a philosophy that makes life on earth possible. MICHAEL S.

Tenant improvements begin at the site of the Big Blue Bus Transit Store located at 223 Broadway. Improvements include a new building façade and construction rehabilitation. Construction is scheduled until August.

Montana/Wilshire Storm Water Diversion Structures Construction for the installation of a debris removal and diversion facility at the intersection of Montana Avenue and Ocean Avenue is near completion. Construction for the installation of the diversion facility on Ocean Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard will continue and is scheduled for completion September. Traffic will be narrowed to two lanes going northbound and one lane southbound on Ocean Avenue at Wilshire Boulevard.

Access center construction Construction of a new two-story homeless services facility begins at 503 Olympic Blvd. for the new Access Center building. The sidewalk on Olympic between Fifth & Seventh Streets will be closed to the public except Samoshel residents.

Airport Park and Airport Avenue improvements Site grading, construction of new artificial-turf soccer fields, building a new playground, restrooms and dog park area, and reconstruction of a portion of Airport Avenue. On-site detour possible during street reconstruction.

Civic Center parking structure Construction continues on a new 900 space Civic Center Public parking structure, located on Fourth Street next to the public safety facility. Construction will require the closure of Avenida Mazatlan and the Fourth Street sidewalk. One lane on southbound Fourth Street is subject to closure while work is occurring.

Euclid park project Construction of a new public park. The project scope will consist of site grading and construction of a new play area (with swings and climbing apparatus), a new garden area, two small green lawn areas, three circular-shaped seating areas, and a trellis entry. Construction is planned to continue until May.

Lantana east Relocation of an 18” storm drain will require street closure on westbound lane #2 of Olympic Boulevard, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Relocation work will continue to April 2, 2007.

ARTESIA, N.M. The U.S. Border Patrol’s push to expand the number of agents on the lookout for illegal crossings has some current and former agents worried that the pressure will lead to corner cutting and will jeopardize public safety. Raising the Border Patrol’s numbers from about 12,000 to 18,000 by the end of 2008 is a key element of President Bush’s plan to improve security along the border, crossed by tens of thousands of illegal immigrants each year. The sprawling Border Patrol Academy here in southeastern New Mexico recently started launching two 50-student classes each week, compared to one class every two or three weeks before the expansion plan was announced nearly a year ago. Some critics worry that pressure to meet the hiring goal will lead the agency to admit recruits with integrity problems. “That’s a very real fear that a lot of agents have, that they will lower the standards,” said T.J.

senting agents. “They have done it before.” Nearly 5,000 new agents were added in a five-year period that began in 1996. That expansion was criticized for poor screening that let in some agents who were later accused of wrongdoing. Jim Dorcy, a retired Border Patrol agent who investigated corruption cases as an internal investigator and is a leader in a group of former agents, said he expects more ethical problems to emerge during the latest expansion because the numbers are higher and the deadline is tighter. “When you’re hiring a lot of people, you can’t properly vet them,” Dorcy said. He also predicted that the agency wouldn’t have enough veteran agents to act as mentors for incoming rookies. In the six months since the latest expansion began in earnest, no evidence has surfaced of lowered qualifications or of agents with ethical problems, but Bonner said the agency has already taken shortcuts in its training that could affect the quality of agents. He cited the decision to cut the length of academy training from about 19 weeks to 17 weeks.

HONOLULU In an effort to save unwanted newborns from abuse or death, Hawaii lawmakers are considering a proposal that would allow babies to be dropped off with police, fire or hospital workers and put up for adoption. The measure would make Hawaii one of the last states to enact a so-called “safe haven law,” but Gov. Linda Lingle may veto the bill if it gets to her desk. Forty-seven states already have safe haven laws, and Hawaii lawmakers are expected to fashion a final version of the bill that has passed both houses as it goes before a conference committee this week. “If we can save one life, it will make me feel like I’ve done my job,” said Rep. John Mizuno, D-Alewa Heights-Kalihi, the bill’s sponsor. “How many babies may have perished because we didn’t act?” The worry is that teenage mothers may drop their babies in trash containers or abandon them in extreme circumstances, Mizuno said. This proposal would give them a way to save the lives of their children without fear of prosecution, as long as the child is unharmed. But opponents of the bill question whether it may do more harm than good. “This bill may have an unintended consequence of encouraging parental irresponsibility,” wrote Linda Smith, Lingle’s senior policy adviser, in written testimony. “Enactment of this bill may encourage those mothers to abandon their children rather than seeking help from the birth fathers, their families and other supportive resources.” Texas was the first state to enact a safe haven law in 1999, and every state in the country has now passed similar legislation

except for Hawaii, Alaska and Nebraska. Jane Greenwood, a Honolulu paramedic, said the law would help girls who don’t know where else to turn. For example, Greenwood has helped deliver babies of a 12-year-old who was raped and a mentally ill mother who didn’t feed or keep her child warm after delivery. “They need to have an option for desperate, alone girls who don’t have access to medical care, a home or a lawyer to put the child up for adoption,” said Greenwood, who has delivered 10 babies in her 15 years as a paramedic.

IF WE CAN SAVE ONE LIFE, IT WILL MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I’VE DONE MY JOB.” Rep. John Mizuno D-Alewa Heights-Kalihi

But Rep. Corrine Ching, R-NuuanuLiliha, argues that the proposal would only help teenagers avoid the consequences of an unintended pregnancy. Also, a baby drop-off would make it difficult for abandoned children to ever find their birth parents. “Children of people who would have gone to mom or dad instead will use this to avoid the repercussions of having a child,” Ching said. “Once it’s done, there’s no way to find the baby again.” The Hawaii Legislature passed a similar bill in 2003, but Lingle vetoed it.

Some question the company’s recent growth, expansion BY CURT WOODWARD Associated Press Writer

SEATTLE With a growing crowd of millions lining up for its fancy coffee drinks in the 1990s, Starbucks Corp. was tantalized by seemingly endless opportunities to expand its brand. A chain of full-service restaurants? Seems like a good fit. A hip tavern with coffee undertones? Hey, sounds sexy. A literary magazine? Why not! It didn’t take long for those ventures to fall flat. And as the coffeehouse titan readies for a long-term explosion of growth, some Starbucks-watchers warn the company may again be stretching its all-important brand too far. Even company chairman Howard Schultz frets that the efficiency improvements driving Starbucks’ dominance have robbed stores of their authenticity. Starbucks’ leaders say they haven’t forgotten the past. Reminders of their greatest misses are even scattered around global headquarters. “We do look in the mirror and say, ... ‘Hey, don’t forget when that didn’t work,”

said Anne Saunders, senior vice president of global brand strategy. Seattle-based Starbucks has more than 13,000 locations around the globe, with a long-term goal of 40,000 stores, half of them outside the U.S. The company had annual sales $7.8 billion in 2006, and is projecting 20 percent growth for this fiscal year. In some markets, the company is saturating densely populated areas with more stores so customers don’t have to walk more than a few dozen yards for a caffeine fix. The company’s rapid growth almost single-handedly popularized upscale coffee in the U.S., and its success has enticed McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts and other retailers to upgrade their coffee offerings. But not everything Starbucks touches turns to gold. Starbucks has led investors on a rocky ride over the past 52 weeks, with shares now 20 percent lower than a year ago. In February, the company said its fiscal firstquarter profit rose 18 percent, attributing the growth to the 700-plus stores it opened in the quarter, and a 6 percent jump in sales at stores open at least a year. In the 90s, the company experimented with several strategies for capitalizing on its hot brand. Among the bigger ventures were attempts to open separate food-and-drink outlets: a full-service, sit-down restaurant called Cafe Starbucks.

Arizona copper towns digs deep to develop more jobs BY MAX JARMAN Associated Press Writer

PHOENIX Faded copper boomtowns in the Pinal Mountains, 85 miles east of Phoenix, are about to boom again. Soaring copper prices have companies scrambling to open new mines in the mineral-rich Globe-Miami Mining District or restart older operations that were closed when metals prices plunged a decade ago. But the historic Gila County mining towns of Globe and Miami are not prepared to handle the renewed mining activity in the area and the up to 1,000 new jobs it is expected to bring. “We have not planned for this,” Miami Vice Mayor Ray Webb said. “Nobody expected copper prices to go up so fast.” Many of Miami’s houses and commercial buildings were abandoned years ago and are crumbling and uninhabitable. Neither Miami nor Globe, four miles to the east, has enough dwellings to accommodate the new miners and their families. Miami’s aging water and sewer systems can barely handle existing residents, and in Globe there is little private land available on which to build homes. “We’re just getting by now,” said Ed Carpenter, vice president and manager of the Sunstate Bank office in Globe and president of the Southern Gila County Economic Development Corp. “In six months, it will be a real problem.” Currently, there are about 575 construction workers employed in the area getting Australian mining giant BHP Billiton Ltd.’s closed Pinto Valley Mine

ready to reopen this fall. Hundreds more workers will arrive in June to begin work on the new Carlota copper mine near Pinto Valley. And it’s possible that Phelps Dodge could reopen its shuttered Miami Mine, putting more people to work. When BHP and Phelps Dodge Corp. closed their Miami mines in 1998 and 2001, copper was selling for 65 cents a pound. Now, thanks partly to China’s burgeoning economy, copper is going for around $3.25 per pound and was as high as $4 last year. Mark Blakely, project manager for the new Carlota Mine being developed by Quadra Mining Ltd. of Vancouver, British Columbia, said financing is in place for the $220 million mine and that construction is expected to begin in June. About 400 people will be employed during the construction phase, which will last until August 2008, when the mine is scheduled to open with about 200 full-time employees. “It’s going to get pretty busy around here when we both get up and running,” Blakely said. “There will be a lot of jobs and a lot of money being spent.” Workers at Pinto Valley already have gobbled up much of the available housing in the area. Motels, even frilly bed-and-breakfast inns, are booked up with construction workers, particularly during the week, “Before, we would sell maybe 10 rooms a night,” said Bobby Kapoor, manager of the 40-room Super 8 Motel in Globe. “Now, we’re selling 35 to 40.” The area also is feeling pressure from Phelps Dodge’s new Safford mine, 75 miles southeast of Globe.

Bryant goes cold against Phoenix Lakers cool off during second half allowing Suns to take series lead By the Associated Press

PHOENIX The “Brazilian Blur” breathed life into the Phoenix offense, and Kobe Bryant went from awesome to awful. The result was a second-half rally that gave the Suns a 95-87 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in their first-round playoff opener on Sunday. Leandro Barbosa scored 19 of his 26 points in the second half, including 15 consecutive Phoenix points in one stretch, to

match his career playoff scoring high. Amare Stoudemire, back in the postseason after missing last year’s while recovering from two knee surgeries, added 23 points and 12 rebounds. Bryant scored 39, but only 11 in the second half. The NBA’s scoring champ was 1for-10 shooting in the fourth quarter, when Phoenix pulled away. Steve Nash had 20 points and 10 assists and Shawn Marion 16 points and 16 rebounds for a Phoenix team struggled mightily until Barbosa provide the spark, highlighted by a 31-footer at the thirdquarter buzzer that cut the Lakers’ lead to 77-74 entering the fourth. Lamar Odom had 17 points and 16 rebounds for Los Angeles. Game 2 is Tuesday night in Phoenix in

the rematch of last year’s first round series. The Suns won the opener then, too, but lost the next three, then regrouped to win the last three and advance. Barbosa’s personal scoring surge erased a 77-71 deficit. His driving layup on an ultrafast break put Phoenix ahead 79-77 with 10:29. It was the Suns’ first lead since it was 13-11 midway through the first quarter. The Phoenix run reached 16-4 after Boris Diaw made one of two free throws to give the Suns an 87-81 lead 6:27 from the finish. With Bryant misfiring, Phoenix stretched it to 91-83 on Stoudemire’s dunk after a pass from Barbosa, who had tumbled to the floor, with 3:32 left. Bryant’s lone field goal in the fourth quarter was a layup. A 14-2 run brought the Suns temporari-

ly back from a 12-point second-quarter deficit. Phoenix tied it at 37 on Nash’s 3pointer with 3:09 left in the half. Then Bryant took over, outscoring the Suns 11-2 the rest of the half, the last three on 3-pointers. His final 3 came from 27 feet with two defenders in his face and one second on the clock. In all, Bryant scored the Lakers’ final 15 of the half and Los Angeles led 48-39 at the break. Bryant’s only 3-pointer of the second half gave the Lakers a 57-45 lead with 9:47 left in the third quarter. Phoenix shot 36 percent in the first half, 3-of-13 on 3s.

James is king against Wizards in Cleveland By the Associated Press

CLEVELAND Flat on his back, LeBron James grimaced as he toward the arena rafters, where giant banners spelled out his team’s playoff motto: “RISE UP!” And he did. Ignoring a sprained left ankle, James stayed in the game to score 23 points and Larry Hughes added 27 Sunday, lifting the Cleveland Cavaliers over the depleted Washington Wizards 97-82 in the opener of this Eastern Conference series. James turned his ankle on a drive in the third quarter but refused to come out, adding nine rebounds and seven assists in 44 minutes. “I had no intention of not coming back,” he said. “First game of the playoffs, we’ve got to set a tone. If I was able to limp on it, I was going to be in there.” The Cavaliers were expected to blow through their second straight first-round matchup with the undermanned Wizards, missing All-Stars Gilbert Arenas (knee surgery) and Caron Butler (broken hand). However, Game 1 was no walk in the park for the Cavs on a beautiful, sunny spring day in Cleveland. Antawn Jamison scored 28 points with 14 rebounds and Jarvis Hayes had 18 points for Washington, which was still within 10 points with more than seven minutes remaining. That’s when the Cavaliers, much more playoff savvy than they were a year ago, moved their attack inside and pounded the ball to 7-foot-3 center Zydrunas Ilgauskas. He scored seven straight points to help Cleveland push its lead to 89-74 with five minutes left. Ilgauskas, bothered by a sore ankle when the Cavs beat the Wizards in a six-game series a year ago, scored 11 of his 16 points in the fourth period. “When the big fella is feeling good and he wants it, you have to give it to him,” James said. Cleveland also clamped down on the Wizards in the fourth, holding them to 5-of20 shooting and making Jamison go 1-of-7 for his only three points in the last 16 minutes. “We missed some open shots,” Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said.“I thought we execut-

ed well enough. It was a game. Their defense was good, but we’ve got to finish the plays.” James appeared as if his second postseason as a pro might be in jeopardy when he crumpled to the floor with 8:03 left in the third. On a drive, James rose for a floater from about 10 feet. As the ball dropped in, James came down on Etan Thomas’ right foot, twisting his ankle and falling in obvious pain. The injury looked severe and the fired-up Cleveland crowd moaned when James began slapping his hand on the floor. But after about a minute, James popped up and walked to the bench with hardly a limp. “That made everybody’s heart jump a little bit,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said. “You don’t want to see that happen to any of your guys, let alone LeBron.” James expects a sore ankle Monday, but he’s certain he’ll be ready for Game 2 of the best-of-seven series Wednesday. The scary moment sparked an 11-2 run by the Cavaliers. They appeared ready to bury the Wizards, but Washington hung tough and a 3-pointer by Antonio Daniels with 1.2 seconds left made it 74-67 with 12 minutes to go. James was little more than a decoy the rest of the way. He made only two hard drives, deferring to Hughes and Ilgauskas. “He’s a machine, man,” said Hayes, who tried to make James work extra hard on offense. “You’ve just got to do something to slow him down.” Hughes was just as tough on the Wizards, his former team. Not only did he knock down jumpers and pick up the slack when James got hurt, but Hughes’ familiarity with Washington’s offense allowed him to yell out the Wizards’ plays. “We were worried about LeBron, we were worried about the big fella down low and trying to box out Drew Gooden,” Jamison said. “Larry did a great job of getting in the teeth of the defense.” After the Wizards trimmed a 10-point deficit to four, Hughes drained a 3-pointer at the halftime horn to give Cleveland a 48-41 lead. “We were struggling through most of the first half,” Hughes said. “I was a little hesitant, a little tentative on both ends.”

Learning to cook Thai food in Bangkok BY JOCELYN GECKER Associated Press Writer

BANGKOK, Thailand For cooks new to Thai cuisine, its distinctive blend of salty, spicy, sweet and sour can present a complex — even intimidating — challenge. But it shouldn’t, Rungsan Mulijan told a classroom of foodies during a recent day of hard-core cooking in Bangkok. Thailand’s richly flavored dishes are easy to make — or at least not as difficult as you think, the Thai chef explained. Even amateurs can experience the magic that comes with lifting the lid off a wok, taking a whiff and smelling the balance: ginger-scented coconut milk, garlic, chilies and a trace

of fresh basil that, fused together, become a delicate, aromatic curry. “I couldn’t believe that I actually cooked it!” said 73-yearold Canadian Norman Crossley, sharing the sentiment of a dozen students attending a class on classic Thai cuisine at Bangkok’s Blue Elephant cooking school. The school is one of many that have sprouted across the country in response to the growing popularity of Thai food worldwide. From Chiang Mai up north to the beaches down south, cooking courses are available for every budget. Backpacker districts offer classes for about $20, while top hotels offer a range of day courses and multi-class packages with luxury lodgings.

Non-cooks might not see the pleasures of standing behind a hot stove during a vacation to the tropics, but more and more food lovers are planning trips around cooking classes or enrolling for a break from the standard templehopping and bargain shopping. “As soon as I knew we were coming to Thailand, I said I wanted to go to cooking school,” said Barbara Crossley, a former assistant instructor at Toronto’s Cordon Bleu school, who took the class at the Blue Elephant with her husband. They booked almost a year in advance, though last-minute reservations are usually fine. Bangkok’s famed Oriental Hotel offers short and longer term classes in a lovely Thai-style dwelling along the breezy Chao Praya river.

Sausage and squash combine for savory and sweet pasta sauce BY J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Writer

Even with the low-carb craze long deceased, pasta has retained its bad-boy reputation. It’s not entirely undeserved. Pastas made from refined flour (and most pasta is) are pretty close to nutritionally bankrupt. All that white flour can amount to a lot of empty calories. Most have just 1 or 2 grams of fiber and 200 calories per serving. The whole-wheat options haven’t been much of an option. They tend to the dense and chewy. While I appreciate that in wholewheat breads, those aren’t characteristics that often play well in pasta. It hasn’t helped that most home cooks don’t know how to use whole-grain pastas, assuming they can be easily swapped for

refined. It’s a nice idea, but it doesn’t always work. That’s because when it comes to pasta (refined or whole grain), it’s usually best to pair like with like. As in, hearty pastas do best with hearty sauces, while delicate pastas (such as angel hair) take delicate sauces. And since most whole-grain pastas are naturally heavy, there aren’t many light sauces that work well with them. With this in mind, I decided to craft a recipe that pairs the heartiest of whole-grain pastas — lasagna noodles — with a sauce that can stand up to its heft. In this case, butternut squash studded with sausage and onions. Lasagna noodles are an underappreciated pasta. Broken into 2-inch lengths, they provide just the right bulk for the sauce. As the squash softens, its natural sweetness offers a great complement to the assertive sausage.

Neighbors rally against airport pollution More than 100 residents come out to protest Santa Monica Airport’s practices BY MELODY HANATANI Daily Press Staff Writer

SANTA MONICA AIRPORT Screaming “enough” and wearing dust masks for a dramatic flair, more than 100 neighbors and politicians rallied here on Saturday against what they see as one annoying neighbor. It was all a day early celebration of Earth Day, observed nationwide on Sunday. Neighborhood and activist groups such as Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution, the Friends of Sunset Park and the North Westdale Neighborhood Association organized the two-hour long protest with Los Angeles City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl’s office, whose district includes West Los Angeles, including part of the Santa Monica Airport. The rally held in front of the airport’s administration building on Donald Douglas Loop South was a call for action for stricter regulations against the Santa Monica Airport, and was an effort to raise awareness about the potentially toxic emissions from planes using the facility. The sea of protesters was well-equipped with signs, some reading “toxic airport” with an illustration of a skull and crossbones. Another sign read “jet setters, you’re killing us.” One of the most popular signs showed an illustration of a family of five standing in front of their home. Each member of the family was wearing a gas mask as an plane flew above their heads, emitting a stream of black smoke below it. With flights dating back to as early as 1917, the Santa Monica Airport is considered to be the oldest operating airport in Los Angeles County.

Following a long list of speakers including Assemblyman Ted Lieu from the 53rd Assembly District, Susan Hartley, vice-chairman of Santa Monica Airport, and Santa Monica City Councilman Kevin McKeown, the protesters, many of whom were wearing dust masks, concluded the rally with a march down Bundy Drive. Throughout the rally, the sounds of take offs from the runway would drown out the sounds of the rally cries and speakers. At the exact moment when Rosendahl finished his speech, saying “bless you all and thank you all for being here,” a plane took off behind him, causing several people to snicker. Lieu, whose district covers communities along the coast from the Santa Monica-Venice border down to Torrance, recently introduced legislation that would require the State Air Resource Board to undergo a study of jets and turbopropeller airplanes taking off and landing from Santa Monica Airport for a year. AB700 would require the airport to record the idle and taxi times of all jet and turbo propeller airplanes and make the data available to the public. The proposed legislation has already been approved by the state assembly’s Natural Resources Committee. One of the most vilified figures in the protest was the Federal Aviation Administration, which was criticized for its perceived lack of action against the activities at the Santa Monica Airport. Councilman Kevin McKeown, who publicly came out in support of Lieu’s bill at the rally, said city officials recently met with FAA officials, who seemed “dismissive” and “unfamiliar with the issues” at the airport. “The problem in this airport is a regional problem,” McKeown said to a crowd of cheering protesters. “I regret this airport is called Santa Monica Airport.” Many of the fed-up neighbors who attended the rally have lived in the area for decades, including famous skateboarder and filmmaker Stacy Peralta, who grew up in Mar Vista and now lives in Sunset Park. He grew up amongst the fumes from the airport. The Peralta home in Sunset Park fills with so much jet exhaust that the windows and doors are sealed shut, even

during the warmer summer months, he said. The situation has become such a nuisance that the family often goes out of town on the weekends. “This airport has gotten so bad, it’s as if our home is built on an aircraft,” Peralta said.“The airport is the most abusive corporate citizen in every single aspect from sound to pollution.” melodyh@smdp.com

New walking tour goes back 130 years into past FROM TOUR PAGE 1 “The one comment we receive is from Santa Monica residents who shop at the [Third Street] Promenade but never looked at the buildings,” Lehrer said. “They discovered a part of Santa Monica they never thought about.” The tour covers 21 buildings total in Santa Monica, starting at the oldest building — the Rapp Saloon, which was constructed on Second Street in 1875 — and concluding at the Natural Resource Defense Council building, constructed in 2003 on the next block on Second Street. The Saturday tour attracted Chad Max and Renee Travlos from Venice. Frequent patrons of the promenade, they decided to embark on the morning tour after reading about it in a calendar listing. Max has always been intrigued by the Rapp Saloon, but admits not knowing much about the building itself. “We don’t know much about the history of Santa Monica,” Max said before the tour began. GOING BACK IN TIME

A group of about five or six people converges at the Youth Hostel on Second Street around 10 a.m. It is here where the tour begins as the Youth Hostel was built around the same time as the Rapp Saloon. Originally constructed as a beer hall by William Rapp, the building was in constant use until the late 1970s when it was boarded up after being deemed unsafe by the city. The landmarked building was reopened years later when Hostelling International came along and proposed wrapping the new hostel around the saloon in “loving embrace,” as described by docent Kay Pattison who led a tour on Saturday. Along the side of the building are remnants of old store signs, giving a glimpse at how the building was used after its life as a saloon. The building was at one time a city hall, a piano store, a tire store and an art gallery. There are about four historically landmarked builΔdings in the tour, including the famous Bay Cities Guaranty Building and a skyscraper clock tower on Santa Monica Boulevard that sits 12 stories in the air. The building, constructed in 1929, became Santa Monica’s first true skyscraper when it opened. An example of the popular art deco architectural style of the time, the

building was constructed by the Bay Cities Guaranty and Loan Association, which later left the building after the Great Depression caused it to go bankrupt. Several of the 21 buildings along the tour, which covers parts of Second Street, Broadway, Fourth Street, Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica Boulevard and Arizona Avenue, come with interesting stories unknown to the average resident. For example, an apartment in the Builders Exchange Building (1927), located on the southeast corner of Fourth Street and Broadway, was once home to an up and coming cartoonist by the name of Elzie Crisler Segar. An avid fisherman, many believe that it was in the apartment where Segar came up with the idea for Popeye the Sailor. Through the buildings along the tour, docents dip into the stories of how Santa Monica came to be. They tell the stories of town founders, Col. Robert S. Baker and Senator John P. Jones of Nevada, and their dreams to turn Santa Monica into the port of Los Angeles. Though they built a railroad and wharf, their dreams never materialized. Instead, their efforts brought tourism into the city, turning Santa Monica into the vibrant community it has become today. After covering historic buildings like the Central Tower Building on Fourth Street, an office complex where an old brass U.S. Mailbox and chute is still in use, and the old Majestic/Mayfair Theater on Santa Monica Boulevard, which has been boarded up for years, the tour ends in a building that has come to represent what the city stands for today — green living. The local office of the NRDC was one of the first buildings in the country to receive the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design designations from the United States Green Building Council. The designation certifies the building as being environmentally friendly. The building is a symbol of the city’s future, sitting amongst buildings of the past. The tours are held every Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. The tour costs $10 for the general public and $5 for members of the Santa Monica and L.A. conservancies. Reservations can be made the Thursday before the tour online at www.smconservancy.org. melodyh@smdp.com

COMMUNITYPROFILES BETTY ROWLAND Former burlesque dancer now tends her own bar in SM FROM CP PAGE 3 Cairo, where “the Sphinx winked at me.” She hung around with movie stars like Mae West, and listened to Barry Manilow and one of the Beach Boys jam at their pad. It was a very exciting life, even if wasn’t what she envisioned when she was a young girl in Bexley, Ohio. Growing up, Rowland thought she would be a clothing designer, but when the Great Depression hit, dancing became the only job that paid. At first, Rowland and her sisters performed in amateur shows, a product of her father insisting that they take ballet to learn how to be graceful. “My father said, ‘If we want these four little girls to be ladies, we better teach them how to walk and carry themselves,’ which is what we learned in ballet school,” Rowland said. When they got older, Rowland and her sisters were forced into burlesque as vaudeville fell out of style and it became difficult for entertainers to put on elaborate productions. Rows of theaters were left vacant, Rowland said. “I never thought of being in show business but with the depression it became a necessity,” she said. “People don’t realize how bad it was, how rough we had it. My mother and father always managed to put food on the

table, but it was a hard time for everyone.” Dancing did get monotonous, Rowland said, but she saw many women move upward because of their talents, including her own sister Roselle, who became a baroness when she married a Belgian baron. Rowland too found love, married and moved to Brentwood where she still has her own apartment. These days she spends her time at the bar, writes poetry and “does the things a lady should do, like get my hair and my nails done,” Rowland said. “I get up and dance every once in awhile, for my own amusement and others’ amazement,” she added. Rowland credits her longevity to not having smoked cigarettes or indulged in alcohol. Her parents played a big part too. “I have to thank my mother and father for giving me a good start.” As for Santa Monica, Rowland said she has grown very fond of the city where she has spent most of her days. “I love Santa Monica, and I hope Santa Monica loves me,” she said. “Even if they don’t, I’m still here. They haven’t run me out yet.” kevinh@smdp.com

Rent prices may keep on rising FROM RENT PAGE 3 The spike in apartment rents coincided with a deepening slump in home sales as eroding property values discouraged people from buying real estate. Foreclosures also have been rising, prompting lenders to tighten their lending standards — a factor that is making it more difficult for borrowers to qualify for a mortgage, especially if they have blemished credit records. With more people leasing instead of buying, apartment landlords have been able to raise rents more easily. Robust job growth in many markets also is providing the means for more people to rent. Apartment demand is particularly intense in Silicon Valley, where the technology industry has bounced back from the dot-com bust and home prices remain

among the nation’s highest. The average apartment rent in the San Jose metropolitan area — Silicon Valley’s hub — has shot up by 12.1 percent over the past year to $1,522 through March. The apartment vacancy rate in the region stood at just 3.5 percent through March. Even so, San Jose rents are still well below their peak of $1,959 per month reached in early 2001, just before paychecks began to evaporate in the dot-com bust. Apartment rents remained the cheapest in Tucson, Ariz. at $655 per month, a 4.6 percent increase. Colorado Springs, Colo. was the only major market where apartment rents declined during the past year. Apartment rents there dipped 1.7 percent to $699 in March.

Hangout for bands could hold the key FROM HOTEL PAGE 3 Olmos and his roommate Moises Rivero have humped polished instruments from the hotel to a nearby plaza hoping to find work entertaining the nation’s largest Mexican community. “This is the base for all of the mariachis,” says Rivero, a trumpeter who learned to play as a boy in Cuernavaca, Mexico. “The whole world knows we are here and this is where

THIS IS THE BASE FOR ALL OF THE MARIACHIS.” Moises Rivero musician

they can come to hire us.” But as the aged hotel’s squalid conditions attract scrutiny from city inspectors, and high-end loft conversions threaten to squeeze the neighborhood, residents worry their lifestyles — and with them, cultural traditions — may be nearing an end. “Sometimes life in the hotel is good, sometimes bad,” said Fausto Israel Valdez, 70, a trumpeter who has lived there for 28 years with his girlfriend. “But this is where my work is. It’s so close.” The 118-year-old Victorian building with four floors and 80 residents sits near a square known locally as Mariachi Plaza, a musical gathering place akin to Mexico City’s Plaza Garibaldi and Guadalajara’s Plaza de los Mariachis. Bands of seven or more looking for work can be seen waiting outside vans or leaning against a gazebo. To make the time go by, they play mournful corridos to passers-by or hustle cash from patrons of nearby restaurants. Nearby shops cater to the musicians, decked out in colorful charro outfits consisting of a waist-length jacket and tightly fitted wool pants.

Massive guitarrons, which provide a low bass sound for the bands, are squished into a taco stand beside rows of men in widebrimmed hats. At a nearby bar, mariachis tip back bottles of Bohemia. In the midst of this, the $200-a-month flop house has emerged as an unlikely centerpiece in a battle to preserve cultural traditions. In January, the nonprofit East L.A. Community Corp. purchased the property with the hope of preserving it as affordable housing for mariachis. But the group said it needs to raise $5 million for renovations. “I think one of the fears of gentrification is that neighborhoods all look the same now,” said Maria Cabildo, executive director of the nonprofit organization. “Somehow that means progress ... and it means you lose those things that make neighborhoods special. Keeping mariachis in Boyle Heights is a way of retaining our cultural history.” William Fulton, an urban planner and author of the book, “Sprawl Hits the Wall,” said a nonprofit purchase of the hotel is its best chance of remaining a home for mariachis, especially as a new light rail stop is set to open in the neighborhood in 2009. “No question that when the Gold Line extension opens, East L.A. is going to be hot,” he said. “When market forces get whirling, it is very difficult.” The nonprofit hopes to do more than just repair the building. Plans include creating an in-house mariachi booking agency and a rehearsal space, and bringing in small business experts to train in bookkeeping and marketing. Leaning against a wall plastered with hundreds of magazine cutouts of bikini girls, Olmos said he’d be happy with just a few simple upgrades to his room: A bathroom, maybe a small kitchen. With those comforts, he said, he’d happily stick around until the end like the three roommates he’s outlived. “One was named Julito,” he said, pacing the room. “The other Chilo, Cecilio. The third, I can’t remember his name.”

Born Today

Happy Birthday!

Actor Lee Majors (1939)

“Interesting” describes next year. Don’t believe every word you hear, as often messages could be loaded with distortions not even perceived by the deliverer. You might feel that a respected family member or boss is off-base much of the time. Be careful approaching these situations, as they could be volatile. Partnerships grow, though they might not always be comfortable. If you are single, meeting someone might not be the issue; finding a person who fits and is authentic could be. If you are attached, revise your thinking and grow with your sweetie. LEO can be an anchor.

Pimp Gov. GOVERNOR ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER is headed to MTV to promote Earth Day with an 800horsepower car that runs on renewable biodiesel fuel. The governor’s appearance on a special Earth Day episode of the popular show “Pimp My Ride” set for

Sunday is the latest environmentally themed event for Schwarzenegger, who drew international attention for signing a global warming law last year. For the show, videotaped earlier, mechanics installed the powerful engine in a converted 1965

Schwarzenegger heading for MTV’s ‘Pimp My Ride’ to promote biofuel

Chevy Impala, producing a vehicle that accelerates from zero to 60 mph in three seconds. The governor said the converted car’s emissions of greenhouse gases will be 50 percent lower than a comparable gas-powered car. And biodiesel fuel can be

made from recycled products such as vegetable oil. “We take this cool show and they did something, and added something that was environmentally hip,” Schwarzenegger recently told a student crowd at Georgetown University. When Schwarzenegger

ran for governor in 2003, he was criticized for popularizing gas-guzzling Hummers. He has since reduced his personal Hummer fleet to four, two of which he says have since been converted to run on alternative fuels. ASSOCIATED PRESS

HURRICANE RELIEF A fundraising auction of music memorabilia from JIMI HENDRIX, THE EDGE, BONO, PAUL MCCARTNEY and others smashed expectations and brought in $2.4 million, some of which will go to a charity that replaces musical equipment lost to hurricanes Katrina and Rita. “It was the best sale we’ve ever done,” said Darren Julien, president and CEO of Julien’s Auctions, which ran the event benefiting Music Rising. A guitar owned by Jimi Hendrix was sold for $480,000. Music Rising was cofounded by The Edge, the U2 guitarist who donated his favorite instrument, a 1975 Gibson Les Paul that he has played for years. The guitar had been expected to bring $60,000 to $80,000, but it went for $288,000, including the commission. Other highlights included a pair of sunglasses donated by Bono that went for $24,000, a guitar from Bob Dylan that sold for $192,000, and a guitar from Paul McCartney that brought in $81,600. The event Saturday night at the Hard Rock Cafe was so popular that bidding went on for three hours after the scheduled conclusion, Julien said. The final amount going to the charity had not been tallied yet. AP

Madonna jets out of Malawi MADONNA jetted out of Malawi on Sunday after a six-day visit to the impoverished homeland of the toddler she wants to adopt, carrying the boy in her arms as she boarded her plane. Madonna and her husband, the film producer Guy Ritchie, took custody of David Banda last October after finding him in an orphanage. Critics said the 48-year-old star used her celebrity status to circumvent Malawian adoption laws — allegations she denies. The 20-month-old toddler waved to the bodyguards and driver who had

escorted him during the visit. Madonna, wearing her now familiar straw hat, did not look back as she disappeared into the silver jet, with her daughter Lourdes following. The star and her entourage spent their time visiting orphanages, projects for street children and agricultural development programs as well as opening a new day care center funded by her charity, Raising Malawi. Madonna, who lives in London, made one visit to the Home of Hope orphanage, where David lived after his death of his mother in childbirth. There was

no sign that Madonna had met with Yohane Banda, the peasant farmer who placed his son in the orphanage saying he was too poor to care for him. It was also unclear whether Yohane Banda met alone with his son, as he had hoped. David’s mother died of complications in childbirth and his two siblings died of malaria in infancy. Although a coalition of human rights groups challenged Madonna’s adoption plans in the courts, many locals says they are happy that the celebrity has drawn attention to Malawi, which usually makes news

because of drought, hunger and the occasional political scandal. Madonna’s childcare center aims to provide education, food and health care for up to 4,000 children. It is based on Kabbalah, Judaism’s mystical sect, which counts the singer among its devotees. Malawian child welfare officials are expected to file a report on the suitability of Madonna and Ritchie, as adoptive parents after two trips to their London residence in May and December. The singer has two other children, Lourdes, 9, and Rocco, 6. AP

British Airways cuts Branson cameo British Airways cut a cameo by Richard Branson from its in-flight version of the latest James Bond film and blurred out the tail fin of a Virgin Atlantic plane seen in the movie. BA’s entertainment team cut a cameo appearance by Branson, chairman of the rival airline Virgin Atlantic, that appears in the original version of “Casino Royale,” a spokesman confirmed Saturday. In the original film, Branson can be seen

turning around after walking through a metal detector at Miami Airport. “We screen all films before they’re used on our aircraft so that we can control the content of what is displayed,” the spokesman said on condition of anonymity, in line with company policy. “We have full control over what is shown.” The tail fin of a Virgin plane appearing in the film is also obscured in BA’s inflight version.

BA’s entertainment team vets films on grounds of taste and suitability. Branson appeared in the film after his airline provided the producers with a plane to use in the movie. Paul Charles, a spokesman for Virgin Atlantic, said was a shame BA felt the cut was necessary. He said Virgin made no changes to “Die Another Day” a Bond film featuring British Airways, adding his carrier’s policy was not to edit the movies it shows.

“We think passengers should see the whole film and nothing but the whole film,” Charles said. Relations between the rival British carriers were further strained last year after Virgin Atlantic Airways provided U.S. and British authorities with information that triggered an investigation of alleged airline price-fixing in passenger fares and fuel surcharges involving British Airways PLC.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY

Natural Selection

By Russ Wallace

CHUCK

SHEPARD

â?šVeterinarians in Tallahassee, Fla., were enthralled in January when a duck, "killed" by a hunter and placed in his freezer for two days, suddenly sprang to life and was rushed into surgery at Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary to repair its leg and wing. Then, on the operating table, the duck (named "Perky" by that time) once again flatlined, only to spring back to life a second time. â?šScience on the Cutting Edge: American researchers in West Africa believe they've found the first instance of an animal (other than humans) building a multistep weapon, after observing wild chimpanzees grab sticks from 1 to 4 feet long, sharpen the ends with their teeth, and murderously jab them into deep tree hollows where delicious bush babies may be nesting. Writing in the journal Current Biology, the team even reported observing the chimps tasting the tips after the stabs, to ascertain whether they had actually located a prey. (One of the researchers said the ferocity of the jabbing reminded her of the shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho.")
