WEST L.A. Today, people across the nation

FOR THE FALLEN Stephanie Salvatore news@smdp.com The Arlington West memorial was set up on the beach near the Santa Monica Pier this weekend. (Bottom left) A row of flag-draped coffins is a part of the memorial designed for family and friends to honor fallen loved ones during war.

Still others will not only pay homage to those that have died, but work to support those that are still living. John Duffy and Sharon Kilbride, two unrelated people from Santa Monica, are off from the starting block at 8:30 this morning. Both have a tendency to wake up and go running, although they only occasionally intend to accomplish more than personal fitness. This Memorial Day is different. They are participants in a five-kilometer run to raise money for a program called New SEE MEMORIAL PAGE 7

Fuel cost behind high price to fly SCOTT MAYEROWITZ AP Airlines Writer

NEW YORK To fly someone from New York to Los Angeles and back, airlines spend close to $330 these days — just on fuel. That’s a 48 percent increase from last year and the main reason vacationers face record costs to fly this summer. To offset their single biggest expense, airlines have hiked fares seven times this year and raised fees for checking bags and other services. This has only added to the frustration of SEE FUEL PAGE 9

’Hangover’ better second time around at box office DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES Hollywood’s hangover is a lot

STRONG START: ‘The Hangover Part II’ hauled in $86.5 million in its first weekend of release. That total tops the previous film’s first-week take.

bigger the second time around. “The Hangover Part II” hauled in $86.5 million in its first weekend, putting Hollywood on course to set a new revenue record for the long Memorial Day weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. From Friday to Sunday, Hollywood’s domestic take totaled about $220 million. Once Monday’s receipts are counted, the industry should finish the four-day weekend with around $270 million, easily topping the $254.6 million Memorial Day record set in 2007, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. “The Hangover” sequel did nearly twice the business of the original blockbuster comedy in its $45 million opening weekend two years ago. In its first four days since opening Thursday, the Warner Bros. sequel has taken in $118.1 million and is on track to finish the long Memorial Day weekend with about $140 million in the bank. The first “Hangover” did not hit the $100 million mark until its second weekend. The movie went on to gross $277 million domestically. “The Hangover Part II” reunites stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis as they awake in another haze and attempt to piece together the mayhem of their drunken night in Bangkok.

U2 rocker’s Malibu mansion plan hits another obstacle NOAKI SCHWARTZ Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Officials for the state agency that oversees coastal development has for a second time recommended denying a controversial development proposal led by U2 guitarist The Edge for a cluster of mansions overlooking Malibu. California Coastal Commission staff on Friday recommended that the board reject the project’s application at its June meeting. In February, officials made the same recommendation before the item was pulled from the agenda at the request of the musician and his partners. At the time, project manager Jim Vanden Berg expressed surprise but said he believed they could work with staff to “clarify misunderstandings.”

The proposal involving the musician, whose real name is David Evans, includes five multilevel homes ranging from 7,220 to 12,785 square feet to be built on 156 acres in the Santa Monica Mountains. Project designers have said the homes will be Gold LEED Certified and the guitarist has said the mansions will be some of the most environmentally sensitive in the world. Opponents of the project, including the National Park Service, however, have argued that the project will have considerable biological and visual impacts in such sensitive habitat. The musician and his partners recently appeased the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, which had opposed the project on these grounds, after agreeing to give the agency more than $1 million, dedicate nearly 100 acres to open space and pro-

vide public access to hiking trails. A major sticking point for Coastal Commission staff, which suggested building fewer homes on the site, is the belief that the proposal is a large development being coordinated by The Edge instead of proposals by individual property owners to build a single home on their separate lots. In their report, staff argued that the current owners are all working together to coordinate the development, which has a single project manager, single architect, single website and, until recently, a single agent that came before the commission. The report also pointed to the deal the owners collectively struck with the mountains conservancy. In a two-page statement, Fiona Hutton, a spokeswoman for the property owners,

responded to the staff report by citing the homeowners’ contributions to the mountains conservancy, their efforts to be sensitive to the environment and their agreement to many changes sought by staff. Hutton also accused commission staff of applying unreasonable standards to the project and of changing “the facts to support their predetermined position.” “Alarm bells should be ringing among defenders of basic property rights everywhere in California,” the statement said. “This precedent could affect land owners and property rights in the coastal zone and elsewhere in California, if local zoning authorities adopted the same unreasonable demands and standards as Coastal Commission staff is trying to apply.”

Circumcision ban a good idea Editor:

Kudos to Lloyd Schofield for his valiant effort to have circumcision banned in San Francisco. Hopefully, his effort will be successful, and perhaps it may set an example to be followed elsewhere, with Santa Monica next. Eventually, this unkindest cut of all will be an historic oddity, as hard to explain as witchcraft, voodoo rituals and sacrifice of animals and virgins to please imaginary gods. Besides obvious moral obligations, physicians are in accordance with the Hippocratic Oath obligated to never do harm to anyone. Yet, cutting off a vital part of innocent and defenseless baby boys is practiced in this country on a broad scale! Actually, we are the only western country to practice routine circumcision, while comparable countries not only do not practice it, but regard circumcision a barbaric, immoral and totally unnecessary violation of a newborn’s human rights. The procedure is painful, it is risky and at times deadly, and it causes irreparable anatomical, and often psychological, damage. Let’s hope Schofield’s petition is successful and a step toward greater respect for the human body, especially of those too young to speak for themselves! They can only scream and twist in pain.

City Hall must avoid a ‘gift’ to the schools LAST WEEK, I WROTE THAT CITY HALL

was trying to determine a legal way to share revenues with the schools from a half cent increase in the sales and use tax (Measures Y and YY) approved by voters last fall. Half of the total annual monies — about $12 million — generated by the April 1 increase are involved. The question is, how can City Hall “share the wealth” without appearing to give annual, multi-million dollar gifts to the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District? Revenue given must be balanced by something of fair and/or equal value to avoid being a gift. Article XVI Section 6 of the California State Constitution prohibits a municipal subdivision from making a gift of public money to any person or other municipal corporation — including a school district. California Civil Procedure Section 526(a). “authorizes any citizen resident to obtain a judgment restraining and preventing an illegal expenditure of government funds or property." City Hall could be sued by any taxpayer who claims illegal expenditure of public funds was made. Thursday night, the City Council authorized the city manager to negotiate and execute a “program agreement” with the SMMUSD to allow City Hall access to athletic facilities at Santa Monica High School for public use during non-school hours in exchange for “reasonable compensation" — about $6-million annually — over a 10 year period with 10 year extensions. There are questions. Is $6 million overpaying for part-time use of high school athletic facilities as many observers claim it is. And, if the amount paid annually for the lease is purely dependent upon the tax collected (which may vary from year to year), is a gift created if use diminishes? Conversely, if revenues increase the following years, does the additional tax money from City Hall to the district constitute a gift? Some think it’s extremely unlikely that a court would invalidate a city appropriation of its funds to a school district if the City Council finds the district’s schools serve a purpose for the city of Santa Monica. One counter argument is that the SMMUSD includes both the cities of Santa Monica and Malibu. City Hall funds given to the SMMUSD are also spent in Malibu which didn’t raise sales taxes. It appears that the SMMUSD and City Hall are both on thin ice unless legal details are carefully worked out. Glossing over the “fair and equal value” requirement because it’s for “our kids” could put the district’s already shaky financial situation at even greater risk. What attorney is representing the school district in these negotiations? Marsha

Moutrie? Ehhhh ... wrong! She’s the city attorney. Nobody seems to have been hired to legally represent the SMMUSD in these business negotiations making a lot of us wonder what district administrators and school board members are thinking in their desperate rush to secure funding — if at all. One last thought about one-way streets. School cheerleaders want revenue directed to district coffers, ASAP. But, what if the situation were reversed? A financially strapped City Hall asks a solvent (as if that were to ever happen) SMMUSD to contribute its funds to help maintain essential city fire, police and emergency services? I’m thinking school supporters would scream bloody murder.

PICO LIBRARY UPDATE

Patrick Hourihan

I participated in a conference call last week with Architectural Services Manager Miriam Muldur , Assistant to the City Manager Kate Vernez, Director of Library Systems Gregg Mullen and the new Director of Public Works Martin Pastucha about Virginia Park Branch Library costs. Pastucha tells me that “construction only” estimates are around $553 per square foot or about $5.6 million for the proposed 8,300-square-foot facility. Add staff overhead (for all those meetings), a 10 percent contingency, $500,000 to $750,000 for furnishings, seven to 10 percent architect/engineering fees and costs begin to near the estimated $11.4 million overall budget necessary to fully complete the project. “[The] $11.4 million is an absolutely worse case scenario and we have to plan for the very worst. Finished cost should be under $11.4 million — possibly $9 or $10 million,” Pastucha said. “We’ll have a better fix on real costs once there’s an approved final design, build drawings are completed, bids are submitted and contracts are let." I still think it’s a lot of money. MEMORIAL DAY — A TIME TO HONOR

Today is Memorial Day and Santa Monica’s 73rd Annual Memorial Day Service will be held at Woodlawn Cemetery beginning at 11 a.m. In addition to the prayers and remembrances for those brave men and women who gave their lives for liberty, there’ll be stirring music from the University of Southern California Marching Band, Santa Monica Chorus and Angel City Chorale — and a flyover of military aircraft. I always find this service to be an introspective experience. It’s an honor to be there and reflect on the accomplishments and deeds of those who have given their lives for our country and to venerate them for their sacrifice.

JAY LINDSAY Associated Press

BOSTON The world’s strongest winds race high in the sky, but that doesn’t mean they’re out of reach as a potentially potent energy source. Flying, swooping and floating turbines are being developed to turn high-altitude winds into electricity. The challenges are huge, but the potential is immense. Scientists estimate the energy in the jet streams is 100 times the amount of power used worldwide annually. Cristina Archer, an atmospheric scientist at the California State University in Chico, said there’s “not a doubt anymore” that highaltitude winds will be tapped for power. “This can be done, it can work,” she said. The question is, when? Some companies project their technology will hit the market by the middle of the decade, but Fort Felker at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory says the industry is 10 years away from making a meaningful contribution to the nation’s electricity demands. No company, for instance, has met the basic requirement of demonstrating its turbine can safely fly unsupervised for prolonged periods of time. High-altitude wind power is similar to ground wind in the 1970s — facing questions but soon to prove its viability, said PJ Shepard of Oroville, Calif.-based Sky WindPower, which is developing a “flying electric generator.” "It’s kind of like the adjustment folks had to make when the Wright brothers started flying airplanes,” she said. The lure of high-altitude wind is simple: Wind speed generally increases with its height above the ground as surface friction diminishes. Each time wind speed doubles, the amount of energy it theoretically holds multiplies by eight times. The world’s most powerful winds circulate in the jet streams, which are found four to 10 miles off the ground and carry winds that regularly break 100 miles per hour. The dream is to eventually tap the jet streams, but high-altitude wind companies are focusing for now below a 2,000-foot ceiling, above which complex federal air-space restrictions kick in. Adam Rein, co-founder of the Boston company Altaeros Energies, said his company calculates winds at the 2,000 foot level are up to 2? times stronger than winds that can be reached by a typical 350-foot land turbine. High-altitude wind advocates say their smaller, lightweight turbines will be far cheaper to build and deploy than windmills with huge blades and towers that must be drilled into land or the sea floor. Those savings would mean inexpensive energy. With wide-scale use, advocates see a range of prices, from something comparable

Circumcision or not? A San Diego-based group that opposes circumcisions for newborns has filed paper work in Santa Monica to place a measure on a future ballot that would ban the practice. So, this week’s Q-Line question asks:

Do you support a ban on circumcision? Contact qline@smdp.com before Friday at 5 p.m. and we’ll print your answers in the weekend edition of the Daily Press. You can also call (310) 458-7737 ext. 102.

to land wind’s current 9 or 10 cents per kilowatt hour down to an astonishingly low 2 cents per kilowatt hour. "They are projecting crazy numbers,” Archer said. “I’m not saying that it’s true. ... But it’s really the lowest, the cheapest energy source, possibly.” As the turbines eventually aim higher, advocates say there are plenty of remote and offshore no-fly areas where they won’t interfere with aircraft and have minimal interaction with people. Still, any nearby residents must be convinced there’s no danger from falling turbines while accepting a view that includes flying objects attached to long tethers that carry the energy to the ground. High-altitude turbines also won’t escape the various environmental concerns that face conventional turbines, such as their effect on bird flight. And each turbine concept awaits extensive testing on its reliability, durability and effectiveness, said Felker, director of NREL’s National Wind Technology Center. Keeping the turbines operating autonomously over long periods in changing weather may be the biggest obstacle, Felker said. “You have powerful reasons to stay aloft as much as possible,” he said. “What do you do when a thunderstorm comes by? Do you recover (the device)? Do you land? ... How do you operate in the real world?” Different companies have proposed answering that question in different ways. A “kite” being developed by Makani Power of Alameda, Calif., looks like a glider with four high-speed rotors that launch it into flight, then switch modes to generate electricity that’s carried down the tether. An onboard computer steers the kite in a wide circle, mimicking the path of the tip of a giant wind turbine blade. That allows the device to interact with a larger wind area, increasing the amount of energy it can capture in the same way increasing the size of a sail increases the potential speed of a sailboat, said Damon Vander Lind, Makani’s chief engineer. The kite can also stay up in high winds, and power itself to land in low winds, Vanderlind said. “It lets us make a very reliable system, something operators can just plug in and use,” he said. Sky WindPower’s generator has four rotors, each 35 feet in diameter, that transmit power down the tether. It’s built to hover, rather than swoop or circle, Shepard said. While moving turbines can actually fly faster than the wind by flying crosswind, they can’t fly as high, she said. “We can get up a little higher than they can. We can get to higher velocity winds and make up for it,” Shepard said.

LOOKING GOOD? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has only limited say in what cosmetics manufacturers can and cannot put into their products. And the cosmetics industry has essentially been regulating itself for some three decades. But critics argue that self-regulation isn’t appropriate for an industry trading in potentially carcinogenic products.

Making makeup safe Dear EarthTalk Can you explain the 2010 Safe Cosmetics Act? What does it purport to do and has it been signed into law?

Megan Wilson Austin, Texas

THE

SAFE

COSMETICS

ACT

WAS

introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives in July 2010 by Democrats Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin. But it never got past committee reviews and thus never came up for a vote. The proposed bill aimed to ensure that all personal care products for sale in the U.S. would be free of harmful ingredients and that all ingredients would be fully disclosed. The bill would’ve given the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to prohibit the use of certain ingredients, including carcinogens and reproductive and developmental toxins, to recall products that fail to meet safety standards, and to require product labels to name each ingredient. The FDA has only limited say in what cosmetics manufacturers can and cannot put into their products. And the cosmetics industry has essentially been regulating itself for some three decades, and would like to keep it that way. In response to failed efforts in the 1970s to force the FDA to regulate cosmetics more like drugs — with required premarket safety assessments — the industry decided to take matters into its own hands, creating the Cosmetics Industry Review Panel to judge the safety of various ingredients. Critics argue that self-regulation isn’t appropriate for an industry trading in potentially carcinogenic products. “It’s a panel funded by the trade association,” Stacy Malkan of the non-profit Campaign for Safe Cosmetics told the Washington, DC-based Corporate Crime Reporter. “For 30 years that they have been in operation, they have only looked at about 13 percent of the chem-

icals in cosmetics. They do cursory reviews. They look mostly for short term health effects. It’s a panel of mostly dermatologists, not toxicologists. So, they don’t have the expertise to be looking at long-term health effects like cancer.” Another non-profit, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), has identified upwards of 100 different products that passed Cosmetics Industry Review Panel safety assessments despite obvious violations of that body’s own guidelines. According to EWG’s research, 22 percent of all personal care products on store shelves today — including children’s products — may contain a cancer-causing ingredient (1,4-Dioxane), while some 60 percent of sunscreens contain oxybenzone, a potential hormone disruptor. In response to the government not requiring cosmetics manufacturers to be more responsible, EWG launched the Skin Deep website, an easy-to-use, keyword-searchable database of cosmetics and their health risks and environmental footprints. The idea behind the website is to let users decide for themselves which cosmetics to purchase; EWG hopes that making this information freely available and easy-to-access will help drive demand for safer products. Supporters of the Safe Cosmetics Act were hopeful that passage of their bill would usher in a new era of more rigorous mandatory screening of cosmetics here at home, and leadership in a global marketplace hungry for safer, greener products. Advocates for safe cosmetics hope that lawmakers will muster the resolve to reintroduce the bill, or another like it, in the current or some future session of Congress.

MEMORIAL FROM PAGE 1 Directions that works with veterans from all wars to relieve the condition that affects an estimated 107,000 of them each night: homelessness. New Directions estimates that nearly 8,000 veterans sleep on the streets of Los Angeles, with returned soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan showing up faster than veterans of other conflicts. “I think it is a really cool way to respect all that they’ve done for us,” Kilbride said. “These guys we’re running for are the people that have become homeless after doing their time in the war. I’m supportive of giving back.” The race begins at the New Directions building in the Veterans Administration center on the 11300 block of Wilshire Boulevard, then circles up through Dewey Avenue to Pershing Avenue, which then intersects with Bonsall Aveune. A twist across Nimitz Avenue takes the runners back to Pershing and the beginning of the loop. Each team will run the whole thing twice to reach the five kilometer goal. Teams run to raise money and, equally important, awareness for the plight of thousands of veterans that have returned over the years from deadly conflict only to find that

they could not find a place in the society they fought to protect. Oftentimes, they fall into a dangerous spiral of post traumatic stress disorder that they self medicate with substance abuse, only to find themselves without a job, home or safety net to fall back on. New Directions seeks to address that problem by offering housing, job placement and substance abuse services to veterans that return from war without anything to return to. “I believe in social justice. It’s important to take good care of those who have served our country,” said Cindy Young, director of development and marketing at New Directions. “We want to raise money, of course, but we also want to raise awareness that veterans shouldn’t be welcomed back to a federal agency, but to a community.” New Directions was founded in 1992 by a group of Vietnam veterans that believed that no generation of veterans should ever turn its back on another generation of veterans, as had happened when they returned from the most vilified war in American history. What started as a single house on Barrington Street is now an organization with a budget of over $6 million that provides a comprehensive package of housing support, substance abuse and mental health SEE MEMORIAL PAGE 9

MEMORIAL FROM PAGE 7 programs to hundreds of veterans every year. Runners may not know the history of the organization they run for, but they know its purpose. Duffy got involved after seeing a flyer for the event. “It just seemed like a good cause,” Duffy said. “I’ve had the opportunity to do some projects with the military, and I’ve seen what they go through in their training.” A film producer by trade, Duffy helped put together internal training videos for the Marines and Navy Seals, a task which gave him intimate knowledge of the stress put on

FUEL FROM PAGE 1 most casual fliers who see $59 fares advertised but are quoted prices well above $300 when they actually try to book. Americans’ expectations of a cheap vacation are being destroyed by the reality of $100-a-barrel oil. “The passenger has to understand that the airline industry in the United States is not meant to be a low-cost mass transit system. The airlines are in business to be profitable,” says airline analyst Robert Herbst. A decade ago, fuel accounted for about 15 percent of airline operating expenses. Five years ago, it was 29 percent. Today, it’s 35 percent.

young people in preparation for war. “It’s a visual thing. You forget these are 18-year-olds,” Duffy said. “You look at it and say, ‘Wow, these are kids!’” Duffy, always up for a physical challenge himself, decided to join the race on a whim, but next year he wants to organize a group to raise more money for New Directions and the veterans it serves. “I’ve seen injured veterans and I want to be able to do something to give something. I’ve seen how much they contribute, what families go through,” Duffy said. “This is a tiny thing of saying thank you, and maybe in some small way say that I appreciate it, and we appreciate what they do.” ashley@smdp.com

During the first three months of 2011, the airlines spent $8.7 billion on fuel, 31 percent more than last year. In the current quarter, jet fuel expenses are even higher. The industry’s remaining expenses break down this way: • Salaries and benefits account for 28 percent. Ten years ago, it was the biggest expense at 39 percent. But several major airlines filed for bankruptcy and that allowed them to renegotiate labor contracts. • Aircraft maintenance, airport landing fees and travel agency commissions account for 18 percent. • Aircraft lease payments, food and drinks and in-flight entertainment account for 5 percent. And that’s even with most airlines no longer serving peanuts.

ave you ever applied for a job, professional license, and/or school application where they asked if you have ever been convicted of a crime? If so, did you get nervous and distraught at the thought of having to circle “yes” and then explaining the circumstances of what happened years and years ago with your minor run in with the law? If this is a likely scenario for you or someone you know, help make those skeletons in the closet disappear by filing an expungement/dismissal motion. California Penal Code Sections 1203.3 and 1203.4 set forth the basic rules for expungements.This article focuses on some need to know legal rules and consequences with regard to expunging your record in California. Please note that this article examines the basic elements and procedures of expungements. If you or someone you know is filling out an application or reporting a past conviction to anyone in an official capacity it is advisable to speak with a criminal attorney about whether you must report the past conviction, even after the expungement process. In terms of filing an expungement and clearing up your record, there are a couple preliminary questions that must be answered. First, was your past conviction for a felony or misdemeanor crime? Second, was probation granted and if so have you successfully completed probation? And lastly, once you have determined that you are eligible for expungement, what do you do? If the answer to the first question is a misdemeanor, then you’re on the right path! If the answer to the first question is felony, then there is another step that must be completed prior to filing an expungement. In order to expunge a felony conviction or have it dismissed from your record, a motion must be made pursuant to Penal Code Section 17(b) to first have the conviction reduced to a misdemeanor. Certain felony crimes, however, are never capable of being reduced to a misdemeanor and can never be expunged. Convictions that cannot be expunged or dismissed by law include any misdemeanor listed in Vehicle Code section 42001(b), any violation of P.C. 286(c), 288, 288a(c), 288.5, or 289(j), a felony under P.C. 261.5(d), and any infraction. Moreover, if you were never granted probation and instead went to State Prison, although there are options for clearing your record, the basics of expungements as explained in this article will not apply to your given scenario. Once you have determined that your past conviction was a misdemeanor or capable of being reduced to a misdemeanor, move on to question number two:Was probation granted and have you successfully completed all the terms and orders of your probation? Typically, in misdemeanor cases, courts order that a defendant be placed on 1-3

years of probation and to follow all rules and regulations. If the court does not order probation, you’re ready to file the motion! If probation was granted, the time period is over and done with, and you have fulfilled all the terms of the probation (including completing any classes, service work, and/or paid all fines) then you are also ready to file the motion! If probation is still open and has not been completed, a separate motion for early termination of probation must first be filed. If granted, and probation terminated early, then you are ready to file the motion! In sum, before a motion for expungement/dismissal is filed, probation must typically be successfully completed either by the passage of time or by early termination from the court. Now that the motion is ready for filing, what do you do and how do you do it? California courts vary in terms of requirements for expungement/dismissal motions. For instance, some courts require a filing fee (usually around $60) and attached declaration (preferably by an attorney).All courts, however, require that a P.C. 1203.4/1203.4(a) Petition For Dismissal be completed and filed. In order to fill out this form correctly, a petitioner needs to obtain the case number, date of conviction, conviction charges, date of birth, driver’s license number, last four digits of social security, and if possible the Criminal Identification and Information (CII) number.After entering the requisite information simply check the applicable boxes and sign/date the form.Additionally, along with the Petition, you should also attach a Court Order.The same information must be filled out on the Court Order; however, this form is for the judge to review and then sign/date.The signed Court Order is then stamped and recorded by the clerk certifying that a judge has ordered the case dismissed/expunged. Expungement/Dismissal Petitions typically take anywhere from one to three months for the court to review and complete. Avoid the headaches and problems associated with explaining away your past minor run-ins with the law and get rid of skeletons in your closet today by filing an expungement! Call the Legal Grind to schedule an appointment to meet with a skilled and experienced attorney to help you navigate through this tricky process and answer any questions that you might have.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★★ Read Libra for a hint. Recognize that you might need to hop on a plane in the near future. At least make a phone call to someone at a distance.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★★★ Many of your most treasured friends and loved ones will surround you, if you planned well.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ If you don't want to be somewhere, don't go. Your mind will tend to drift when you are not personally involved. Many of you could be thinking about loved ones at a distance or other such thoughts. Tonight: Dream away.

Happy birthday

If you are attached, keep your sweetie tuned in to your changing mental portfolio. Be willing to discuss this transformation. TAURUS understands perhaps too much!

SHEPARD

■ The local board of health closed down the Wing Wah Chinese restaurant in South Dennis, Mass., briefly in August (1992) for various violations. The most serious, said officials, was the restaurant's practice of draining water from cabbage by putting it in cloth laundry bags, placing the bags between two pieces of plywood in the parking lot, and driving over them with a van. Said Health Director Ted Dumas, "I've seen everything now." ■ Rights of women are severely restricted in Pakistan's tribal areas and among Muslim fundamentalists, but the rights of the country's estimated 50,000 "transgenders" blossomed in April when the country's Supreme Court ordered the government to accept a "third sex" designation on official documents (instead of forcing a choice of "male" or "female"). The court further recommended that transgenders be awarded government job quotas and suggested "tax collector" as one task for which they are particularly suited, since their presence at homes and businesses still tends to embarrass debtors into paying up quickly (especially since many transgenders outfit themselves, and behave, flamboyantly).
