THE PARK IT ISSUE

Park sculpture more than just a pretty face BY ASHLEY ARCHIBALD Daily Press Staff Writer

CITY HALL The world’s most memorable public spaces gain acclaim not simply for the beauty of their natural surroundings but the appeal of their manmade elements. In 2010, five respected minds of the Los Angeles art community and a New York landscape architect gathered to begin the difficult process of selecting such a piece for Palisades Garden Walk, a $47 million space overlooking the Pacific Ocean near Downtown Santa Monica. City officials sent invitations to 20 artists, 14 of whom indicated their desire to participate. In 2012, the City Council approved $440,200 for a piece that the panel believes will be a daring addition to an iconic location, although both remain two-dimensional images waiting to be brought to fruition. The piece is tentatively entitled “Weather Field.” It consists of 49 poles extending 20 feet into the air capped with contraptions that under normal circumstances would measure wind direction and speed. The weather instrumentation will move under the power of the sea breezes, each influencing the direction of the air like the runnels of the park itself to create a small microclimate in the air above the site. Just as its harsh, geometric design stands in sharp relief to the undulating hills and twisting paths envisioned in the park, the turning weather devices are meant to evoke a flock of creatures, each subtly affected by its neighbor. That was the vision that artist Inigo Manglano-Ovalle presented to the panel of experts in late 2010 as he and four others that had made it to the top five competed for the opportunity to erect their work in what officials hope will be Santa Monica’s signature park. With only a conceptual drawing and the power of his conviction, Manglano-Ovalle captured the imagination of the panelists, SEE SCULPTURE PAGE 7

AS IT IS: A play area located in the southern part of the city will soon be transformed into a universally accessible playground.

Accessible playground design tweaked BY ASHLEY ARCHIBALD Daily Press Staff Writer

CITY HALL City officials have revised plans for a new playground planned for the south end of Santa Monica’s waterfront to mollify neighbors who felt the original design would attract the homeless and cause traffic problems. The 20,000-square-foot playground, designed for the enjoyment of children with special needs as well as typical children, has a nautical motif featuring a buried clipper ship with white sails to evoke Santa Monica’s seaport history. It also includes rubberized mats with ripples to create the illusion of water, swings, rolling bars and climbing nets as well as a captain’s wheel and musical instruments for children of all abilities. Residents of Sea Colony, a gated condo-

minium complex with ‘round the clock security near the proposed playground, came to the Jan. 10 City Council meeting to oppose the design on the grounds of safety. Commenters said that the proximity of the Marvin Braude Beach Bike Path was a hazard to children, who could easily be mowed down by an unwary bicyclist, and that traffic backup on Barnard Way would cause major problems. The most prevalent concern, however, was that homeless people would sleep in the hollow boat. One even mentioned the potential biohazard of the homeless having sex in the ship where children would later play. In response, staff modified the design by lowering the height of the ship’s prow by 9 inches and putting bigger openings in the hull to increase visibility. The shade structures and sails were also reduced, and the

sails changed from white to either blue or green. Gone also are a number of musical instruments like low-decibel drums that residents believed would make too much noise. The new design represents a compromise that preserves custom elements that make the playground unique and special, said Karen Ginsberg, director of Community and Cultural Services for City Hall. “I think we did reach a good balance,” Ginsberg said. “We retained features that were most important to the community while meeting the Sea Colony neighbors concerns.” Although the instruments are gone, other sensory elements and touch surfaces remain to engage children in ways that SEE DESIGN PAGE 7

Heal the Bay earns notice Santa Monica-based environmental nonprofit Heal the Bay will be honored this week by the California Travel Association for its coastal stewardship. Heal the Bay will receive the honor during the association’s annual summit in Sacramento from June 4-6. Heal the Bay will receive the Stewardship of the Year Award, which annually recognizes an individual or organization that has done the most to protect, preserve, restore, improve, expand, or otherwise enhance California’s natural, cultural, or historical treasures. In bestowing the award, the CTA noted Heal the Bay’s education and advocacy initiatives to protect oceans statewide and beautify beaches for the millions of people who visit California each year. Among its most noteworthy programs: • Its publishing of The Beach Report Card, a searchable database service and mobile app that provides weekly Ato-F water quality grades for more than 500 beaches along the California shoreline based on levels of pollution. • Its advocacy to help create newly established Marine Protected Areas off the coast of Southern California. • Its ongoing education of nearly 100,000 visitors to Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, which inspires coastal stewardship through a variety of interactive displays. • Its contribution to ending pollution on our shores by sponsoring a number of regional and statewide measures that have significantly reduced urban runoff and marine debris. — DANIEL ARCHULETA

American employers waiting and watching before hiring new workers JONATHAN FAHEY & SCOTT MAYEROWITZ AP Business Writers

NEW YORK Business has picked up. Yet American companies are too nervous to step up hiring. The economy seems so gripped by uncertainties that many employers have decided to manage with the staff they have. They aren’t convinced their customer demand will keep growing. Or they worry that Europe’s festering debt crisis could infect the global economy. Or they aren’t sure what Congress will do, if anything, about taxes and spending in coming

months. All that helps explain why U.S. employers added just 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year and the third straight month of weak job growth. “If you’re anxious, you sit on your hands,” said Chad Moutray, chief economist at the National Association of Manufacturers. The U.S. government is also nearing its debt ceiling. It was just last summer that a bickering Congress rattled markets by nearly allowing the government to default on its debt. State and local spending levels are uncertain or shrinking as governments try to shrink their own debts. The result is smaller budgets for schools,

transportation projects and services. Companies also complain that changes in environmental regulations and business subsidies are too hard to predict and plan for. Here’s a look at why some individual employers remain hesitant to hire: ROAD WORK

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

My Write

Were the questions asked? Editor:

I have known Dr. Jennifer Conrad for over 15 years. Over the years she has sedated bobcats, mountain lions, servals, leopards, lions and tigers (”Groups want policy change after mountain lion death, May 31). She has worked with large cats both in small enclosures and large free roaming fencedin areas. My question is how much experience did the officer from Fish and Game have when he tried to tranquilize the mountain lion. Was he trained, certified and authorized? When did he last take a certified training course and was his knowledge and equipment up to date? How many big cats has he sedated in the past? What type of dart gun was used? What kind of darts were used, what size, and capacity? How far from the cat was the dart gun? This affects penetration. What type and how much tranquilizer chemical was used; Medetomidine, Ketamine, Zylazine, etc.? Where is the medical record of the drugs used? These drugs are DEA schedule drugs. Who authorized their use and who determined the amount and type to use? Who was his immediate supervisor? Where was this medication obtained and were the drugs current; within the date of expiration? Keep in mind that the head of Fish and Game was censured and cited for an unauthorized trip to Idaho for a pay-to-kill mountain lion hunt. Who authorized the use of “pepper balls” and a fire hose? Is this appropriate procedural protocol when dealing with large cats and wild animals? Not in my experience. Was this action directed under the supervision of a veterinarian? If not who? Dr. Conrad called the police department and was ignored. Since there was a qualified veterinarian in the area why was she turned down? The comment from the police department was “everything is under control.” Obviously this wasn’t the case. Who authorized the shooting of the cat after it was stressed out and riled up from all the attention, helicopters, police cars, noise, etc.? I am sure the police sirens didn’t help to allay any fears. Evidently the police along with Fish and Game operated in a panic mode condition and had absolutely no idea what they were doing and how to handle this incident. There was no plan in place for incidents like this. Who is to say this won’t happen again some day as we encroach on their territory? Why is there no comment from their side? It seems to me as if the whole incident has been hushed up. What occurred should be public information. The excuse used is always public safety. The public should have been kept away. The children ushered out the back door of the school or been kept inside. Wasn’t the cat already trapped in the building? A competent experienced professional veterinarian such as Dr. Conrad should have been welcomed and allowed to assess the situation. Dr. Conrad has been a resident of the city of Santa Monica for many years. She is respected and well known. As you may remember it was because of her that Santa Monica banned cat declawing. There was certainly no rush or deadline involved. What do other cities do when there is a bear incident? Aren’t they normally tranquilized and transported back to the wild?

EDITOR IN CHIEF

MANAGING EDITOR

MONICA MADE

HEADLINES

around the world last week when a mountain lion found in Downtown died during attempts to capture and return it to the wild. The cougar was spotted at 5:45 a.m. on Arizona Avenue, Tuesday May 22, by a citizen who called the Santa Monica Police Department. By the time police responded, it had hunkered down in a courtyard at the Santa Monica Emeritus College’s building on Second Street. The California Department of Fish and Game was called in to help rescue the animal and the National Park Service sent a mountain lion biologist to assist. The cougar was darted with a robust dose of tranquilizer. Unfortunately, it still can take up to 25 minutes to incapacitate a wild puma depending on its size, condition and numerous other factors. Keep in mind that the immediate mandate for law enforcement is to minimize danger to the public. So, when the animal became agitated, officials were concerned the cat would leap over the glass partitions and doorway (well within the capability of a healthy mountain lion) and bolt into the streets where the public could be endangered and any attempt to contain it would be impossible. The inevitable conclusion to such a scenario is the death of the animal. A number of non-lethal methods were used to contain the cat. Fire hoses were deployed to spray the glass walls outside the courtyard to render them opaque in hopes the cat would stop charging the partitions or try to leap over them. Non-lethal pepper balls were fired onto the ground in front of the cougar to deter its forward movements — also to no avail. With the big cat continually trying to escape and with all other options to subdue it over a nearly three hour period failing, the use of deadly force was called into play. Although a final necropsy report on the cougar’s cause of death hasn’t been released, speculation is that the cougar may have died from injuries received after running headlong into glass doors at full speed. The necropsy will likely reveal that some buckshot pellets struck the cat, however, until the full report is available, it is unknown at this time whether they caused superficial or fatal wounds. The death of this magnificent creature was a tragedy. I firmly believe those involved did all they could to save it. With unpredictable wild animals, especially apex predators under stress, anything can and will happen. Unfortunately, the outcome is usually not in the animal’s favor. There is speculation this cougar may have wondered into Santa Monica, possibly in search of new territory. It might have been here for 24 hours or longer hunting domestic cats or other small wild animals at night. If it had been here a day or two before being finally spotted, Santa Monicans are lucky it hadn’t attacked a person. Media misreporting about the incident is also unfortunate. This has led to an

Kevin Herrera editor@smdp.com

overreaction by some animal lovers and animal rights groups who, quite frankly, didn’t know what really occurred, jumped to conclusions and then voiced invalid opinions based on prejudices and heresay. For example, after the incident, local news repeatedly described the cougar as a “baby mountain lion, “an underage female,” “skinny"or a “young male.” News reports pegged its weight anywhere from 50 to100 pounds. It’s now been confirmed this puma was a healthy, three-year-old male weighing close to 100 pounds. As such, it could easily jump a 10- or 12-foot wall and run 35 miles per hour in short bursts. There’s been much criticism — and abuse — directed at Fish and Game as well as the Santa Monica Police Department over the incident and it’s good that both departments are reviewing their policies regarding such occurrences. However, the public’s anger should be redirected to the reasons why wild animals — bears, pumas, coyotes — are turning up in civilized areas more frequently and meeting fatal consequences: the diminishing of their natural habitat. Think of U2 guitarist, David Evans, AKA “the Edge" who planned to build a private compound on 156 acres of prime, raw Malibu hilltop a few years ago before being stopped by the California Coastal Commission. The real villains in this story are developers, real estate interests and speculators who buy up untouched property adjacent to national and state parks and erect developments that deprive wildlife of its homeland. Public indignation over the incident should also be directed at state and federal lawmakers who aren’t doing nearly enough to protect wildlife and natural habitat — not at law enforcement for protecting public safety.

Your choices are social activist Torie Osborn, Assembly member Betsy Butler (now representing the 53rd Assembly District) who’s recently moved into the 50th, Santa Monica Mayor Richard Bloom whose tenure on our City Council has been undistinguished and West Hollywood attorney Brad Torgan.

of dollars in the pockets of farmers whether or not they plant a crop may disappear with hardly a protest from farm groups and the politicians who look out for their interests. The Senate is expected to begin debate this week on a five-year farm and food aid bill that would save $9.3 billion by ending direct payments to farmers and replacing them with subsidized insurance programs for when the weather turns bad or prices go south. The details are still to be worked out. But there’s rare agreement that fixed annual subsidies of $5 billion a year for farmers are no longer feasible in this age of tight budgets and when farmers in general are enjoying record prosperity. About 80 percent of the bill’s half-trillion-dollar cost over the next five years represents nutrition programs, primarily food stamps now going to some 46 million people. About $100 billion would be devoted to crop subsidies and other farm programs. The Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee last month approved a bill that would save $23 billion over the next decade by ending direct payments and consolidating other programs. The bill would strengthen the subsidized crop insurance program and create a program to compensate farmers for smaller, or “shallow,” revenue losses, based on a five-year average, for acres actually planted. Getting a bill to the president’s desk will be a challenge. Most of the bill’s spending is on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, at an annual cost now of about $75 billion. The Republicanled House is looking for greater cuts to this program than the Democratic Senate will accept. The House also is more sympathetic to Southern rice and peanut farmers who say that shallow loss program hurts them. They want to keep some form of target price subsidy. The current farm bill expires at the end of September. But the Senate bill, and presumably the yet-to-be-written House counterpart, “makes clear that the era of direct payments is over,” said Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, who heads the Senate committee. She said the Senate bill “represents the most significant reform in American agriculture policy in decades.” The White House, which also is pushing for the end of direct payments, says more than 50 percent of the subsidies go to farmers making more than $100,000 in income. Direct payments are only one of several

ways the government ensures that farmers are protected from falling prices or weather disasters. The Congressional Research Service estimates that under current law, the government will spend $5.7 billion a year on commodity programs, including direct payments, along with $1.5 billion a year on disaster aid and $9 billion a year to subsidize crop insurance. The Agriculture Department says that in 2011 the government paid farmers about $10.6 billion, including about $3.6 billion for conservation programs, some 10 percent of the farm sector’s record-high net cash income of $108.7 billion According to the Environmental Working Group, in the 1995-2010 period, the top 10 percent of payment recipients received an average $30,751 a year while the bottom 80 percent got $587 a year. Direct payments were initially supposed to be a “market transition” device after the 1996 farm bill eliminated other price supports. But those payments became entrenched when farm prices dropped in the next few years and farmers went through a rough period. Farmers are now willing to give up direct payments because of their increasing reliance on crop insurance. Insured acres have risen from 45 million in 1981 to 265 million in 2011, to the point where 83 percent of the nation’s farmed acreage is covered by government-subsidized insurance programs. The government chips in for an average 62 percent of the farmer’s premiums, which supporters insist is different from a direct subsidy because the premiums go into a risk pool to pay for future losses. The proposed shallow risk program would cap annual payments at $100,000 for a married couple and restricts it to farmers with adjusted gross incomes of less than $750,000. But there are no such caps on the insurance program, drawing criticism from some small government groups. The Senate bill, said Taxpayers for Common Sense, “does nothing to rein in the exploding costs of taxpayer subsidized crop insurance.” The Congressional Budget Office estimated that the government could save $1 billion a year by reducing the premium subsidy by 10 percentage points. The Government Accountability Office says it could save an additional $1 billion if individual farmer subsidies were capped at $40,000 a year. The GAO said that in 2011 the average value of premium subsidies was $8,312 per farmer, and that one corporation that insured nursery crops in three counties in one state cost the government $2.2 million in premium subsidies and $816,000 in administrative expenses.

popularity of organic food has come an increased awareness about the dangers lurking on so-called “conventionally produced”(that is, with chemical pesticides and fertilizers) foods. “There is a growing consensus in the scientific community that small doses of pesticides and other chemicals can have adverse effects on health, especially during vulnerable periods such as fetal development and childhood,” reports author and physician Andrew Weil, a leading voice for so-called integrative medicine combining conventional and alternative medical practices. He adds that keeping one’s family healthy isn’t the only reason to avoid foods produced using chemical inputs: “Pesticide and herbicide use contaminates groundwater, ruins soil structures and promotes erosion, and may be a contributor to ‘colony collapse disorder’, the sudden and mysterious die-off of pollinating honeybees that threatens the American food supply.” In general, fruits and vegetables with an outer layer of skin or rind that can be peeled and discarded are the safest in terms of pesticide residues. Most pesticides are sprayed on the outside of produce. So if you are going to toss the rind of that cantaloupe, you might as well save money and buy a conventional version. But a red pepper would be a different story: For those items consider it money well spent to go organic. The non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) lists a “dirty dozen” of fruits and vegetables with the highest pesticide load so that consumers know to look for organic varieties of them when possible. The

dirty dozen are: apples, celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, nectarines, grapes, sweet bell peppers, potatoes, blueberries, lettuce and kale/collard greens. Another non-profit working hard to raise awareness about pesticide residues on foods is the Pesticide Action Network (PAN). The group’s recently launched website and accompanying iPhone app called “What’s On My Food” helps consumers know specifically which pesticide residues are likely ending up on their foods (and in their bloodstreams). In creating the database, PAN linked pesticide food residue data with the toxicology for each chemical and made the combined information easily searchable. “Pesticides are a public health problem requiring public engagement to solve,” the group reports, adding that “What’s On My Food” can be an important tool in raising awareness. While the website version of “What’s On My Food” is helpful for advance planning, the iPhone app is handy while plying the supermarket produce aisles to help decide whether to go for organic vegetables or stick with the cheaper conventional ones. For instance, the database shows that conventionally grown collard greens likely contains residues of some 46 different chemicals including nine known/probable carcinogens, 25 suspected hormone disruptors, 10 neurotoxins and eight developmental/reproductive toxins-not to mention 25 different compounds known to be harmful to honeybees. Spending a little quality time on the website or app is enough to drive anyone to more organic food purchasing.

SCULPTURE FROM PAGE 1 each of whom deal in the pragmatism of public art in municipal and educational settings in Los Angeles, Arizona and New York. “I think it was the enthusiasm,” said Jessica Cusick, cultural affairs manager with City Hall. “He genuinely seemed to have a passion for working on this opportunity.” Selecting the maker of a piece of public art is akin to agreeing to be led blindfolded by a guide to an unknown destination: you have to have the utmost confidence not only in their abilities, but in their understanding of the setting. For the nature guide, it’s the errant tree root that can trip you up. In art, it’s public opinion. It is a bit of a risk because you never know exactly what you’ll get, acknowledged Felicia Filer, public art division director with the city of Los Angeles who served on the selection panel. Manglano-Ovalle brought in a rendering to give the flavor of the piece, but in her experience selecting public art for L.A., Filer estimated that the initial drawing and the finished work resemble each other about half the time. “You shouldn’t be afraid to take a risk on a big project, and this artist was the biggest risk,” Filer said. Manglano-Ovalle wasn’t offering up a sculpture of a fish, or some other piece of work that related to Santa Monica in a way Filer deemed “safe.” Instead, he was forming a piece of the Santa Monica identity by doing something that had not been done before in one of the most public locations the city has to offer. In this gamble, however, panelists and Santa Monica officials felt they were betting on the house. Manglano-Ovalle is established, used to crafting pieces for large public displays and museums. The Spanish-born artist has collections throughout the United States and the world. Since 1995, he has been crafting work centered on weather and the many meanings of the word climate, a theme he continued with “Weather Field.” A piece from the mid-1990s was a timelapsed film of weather moving in the airspace over the U.S.-Mexico border, a literal representation of turbulence that underscored the very real pressure on the relationship between the two countries. “The placid video of clouds moving across the sky had political and social undertones,” Manglano-Ovalle told the Daily Press. “It was as much about immigration as it was about these climactic sys-

DESIGN FROM PAGE 1 most playgrounds do not, she said. Staff also worked with the police department to make sure that the park was a safe place for the children that play there and the people who live nearby. The old playground that will be replaced by the ship-themed structures is open at all hours. The new playground will be fenced, closed and locked during evening hours. Police also committed to enforcing traffic rules on Barnard Way, where Sea Colony residents say that drivers block traffic or make illegal turns.

tems.” Manglano-Ovalle doesn’t consider himself a public artist, but he agreed to put his name in the hat when he learned that James Corner Field Operations, an internationallyrecognized landscape architecture firm, was designing it. He worked to make his piece an element of the park itself rather than a bauble with no relation to the whole. “I think the design for the park is a good design,” he said. “In a way, the piece is responding to the design.” The poles, each arranged at perfect geometric angles, seem to jut abruptly out of the soil, at odds with the smooth curvature of the park around it. Still, there’s an intended softness to the fluttering weather gauges that’s meant to inspire wonder in the viewer and at the same time reflect the uncertainty inherent in their movements. That turbulence emerges not from the air hitting a single gauge, but from their proximity to one another, influencing and twisting the airflow before it makes contact with another member of the group. “When you group these mobiles together, something starts to happen that is different than when they’re alone,” Manglano-Ovalle said. City officials and Manglano-Ovalle are still working on the final permits for the piece, particularly the composition of the foundation that will hold it to the site in perpetuity. Between the professional engineers and fabricators working on the final product, “Weather Field” will stand in the Palisades Garden Walk Park in perpetuity, Cusick said. That is perhaps its final bit of symbolism — unlike the ever-changing breezes and weather around it, “Weather Field” will remain constant. A person walking through the park several years from now may never know the depth of thought that went into crafting the field of poles, or what the artist was thinking when he decided to create a piece specifically for Santa Monica’s newest park. Few will go through the effort to find his proposal to the art committee or seek out other sources of information pertaining to the work. Those that do will find something, and that is something Cusick appreciates about the piece. “The best kind of public art is like an onion,” she said. “It should be appealing to you as an onion in itself. But if you access extra knowledge or experience extra knowledge, isn’t it nice that the other layers are there?”

There will also be a new crosswalk to the beach bathroom immediately adjacent to the playground to make it safer for children and families crossing the path. Sea Colony residents were pleased by the changes, said Bob Friday, a spokesperson for the condo complex. “We were thrilled and relieved and optimistic that this will be a wonderful installation at the south end of the beach,” Friday said. “We are very thankful that the folks at the city listened to us and took our input to heart as much as they did. It’s great.” Officials expect that construction of the project will begin in the fall. ashley@smdp.com

HIRING FROM PAGE 3 don’t have contracts that I can have them go to work on,” said Ed Dalrymple, vice president of Chemung Contracting Corp., based in Elmira, NY. The company, which operates gravel quarries and asphalt plants and does highway and airport runway paving, relies heavily on government work in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. “There’s work that needs to be done, but none of the states have authorized it,” Dalrymple said. “If you look at the transportation bill in Congress, it just sits there.” TAXES

Jason Speer is nervously watching Congress and possible tax changes as Bush-era income tax cuts near expiration at year’s end. He’s a vice president of Quality Float Works of Schaumberg, Ill., which makes devices to monitor fluid levels in tanks. Speer says he’d feel a lot better about hiring later this year if it weren’t for the uncertainty about federal taxes. Unable to anticipate his company’s costs, Speer says he can’t make decisions about growth and hiring. “We don’t know if there’s something around the corner that’s going to hurt our business,” Speer says. Sales in the United States, the Middle East and South Asia have been strong, he says. And the company expects to grow 15 percent this year. But Europe has been a drag: Sales to the region are down 50 to 60 percent this year. The company added two jobs this year but would have added a third if European sales hadn’t suffered. “If that business was still what it was, we would have already hired someone to keep up with it,” Speer says. SAVING BREAD

John Hensley employs nine people at Lark Cake Shop, a specialty bakery in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood. Sales are up over last year. Yet Hensley doesn’t feel comfortable hiring. He’s worried the economy may be staring at another slowdown. And he’s uneasy over whether Congress will renew Social Security tax cuts. “It definitely doesn’t put you in the frame of mind to want to hire,” Hensley says. The prospect of a worsening European debt crisis that could hurt U.S. banks, the stock market and consumer confidence is a concern for him, too. “If people feel like everything is going badly, then they’re not going to be in the mood to spend money,” he says. “There just seems to be so much uncertainty out there.” NO BREEZE

NRG Systems, a Hinesburg, Vt., maker of sensors to measure wind speeds for the energy industry, announced the first layoffs in its 30-year history in midMay. The U.S. wind industry is in the doldrums. That’s because a key renewable-energy subsidy is set to expire later this year, electricity demand is weak and electricity prices are low because of lower natural gas prices. “This is the worst it’s ever been,” said Abby White, a company manager. “The U.S. market has pretty much dried up.” White said the main problem is the future is too cloudy. Without knowing what federal policy will be in place, companies can’t plan. “The lowest-risk thing to do is to stop altogether,” White said. BRACING FOR BAD TIMES

An April survey of 122 technology executives by KPMG found that employers weren’t expecting to expand their payrolls as aggressively this year as they did last year. The main reason: Most of them are bracing for slower revenue growth. The fallout from Europe’s shaky economy looms as the biggest concern. But slowing economies in Asia are also contributing to a more cautious approach to hiring, said Gary Matuszak of KPMG. There’s not much confidence in the U.S. economy, either. Thirty percent of the survey respondents predicted that the economy won’t fully regain its health until 2014. Thirtythree percent expect it will be 2015 or later before the economy returns to where it was before the financial meltdown of 2008. ON HOLD

Alan Gaynor’s New York architectural design firm has put

off hiring because his real estate clients are uneasy about starting projects in an uncertain global economy. “It’s a wait-and-see attitude they have,” Gaynor said. “Everyone’s a little nervous. The economy’s growing a lot slower than anyone would have liked.” Gaynor’s firm employs 15, the same as a year ago. He cites gridlock in Congress and the slowing economies in China and India as reasons for his clients’ insecurity. One client has been on the verge of starting a $30 million project in Manhattan. “They have been ready to pull the trigger for six months or longer — but they’re not doing,” Gaynor says. DEMAND DOWN

Gasoline demand in the U.S. has fallen for 62 straight weeks, according to MasterCard Spending Pulse, as drivers commute and travel less. Demand for diesel, used by trucks to ship goods, has also been weak. “Until the economy strengthens, there won’t be a need for our products,” said Bill Day, a spokesman for Valero Energy,

a refiner based in San Antonio. Valero isn’t cutting jobs. It needs the same number of people to run a refinery whether it’s operating at full strength or not. But Day said tighter environmental regulations and permit requirements, along with weak demand, are hindering the company’s ability to grow. WAITING GAME

The sluggish economy has been a factor in Alice Lerman’s decision not to expand her Chicago-area pet supplies store, Barker and Meowsky. She hires only when one of her seven full-time and five part-time staffers leave. “We really don’t know exactly what’s going to happen” with the economy, Lerman says. Rather than expand her company, she says she’s been tilting its focus toward services that big-box stores don’t provide. She hasn’t raised her prices and has even lowered some of them. “We can’t affect what’s going on in the outside, but we can affect what’s going on internally,” Lerman says.

‘Snow White’ puts bite on box office with $56.3M DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES

“Snow White & the Huntsman” turned out to be a fairer boxoffice beauty than Hollywood anticipated. According to studio estimates Sunday, Universal Pictures’ action yarn inspired by the fairy-tale princess debuted strongly at No. 1 with $56.3 million domestically. That’s about $20 million higher than industry expectations. Without the built-in business that generally goes with a sequel, “Snow White” was a question mark as a draw for young males who typically make up most of the action crowd. The movie wound up drawing a fairly even audience, with female fans accounting for 53 percent of viewers. “We weren’t even thinking we could do beyond $40 million, especially for a title where you didn’t know if the males are going to show up. And they did,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. Overseas, “Snow White” added $39.3 million in 45 markets, putting the worldwide total at $95.6 million for the movie that stars Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. “Snow White” bumped Sony’s “Men in Black 3” from the top spot and into secondplace with $29.3 million. The Will SmithTommy Lee Jones sequel raised its domestic total to $112.3 million after two weekends and added $78.6 million overseas for an

international take of $274.6 million and a worldwide gross of $386.9 million. Disney’s superhero sensation “The Avengers” remained strong at No. 3 with $20.3 million, lifting its domestic total to $552.7 million. “The Avengers” climbed past “The Dark Knight” at $533.3 million to become No. 3 all-time on the domestic revenue chart, behind “Avatar” at $760.5 million and “Titanic” at $658.5 million. Adding $12.4 million overseas, “The Avengers” pushed its international haul to $802.5 million and its worldwide earnings to $1.36 billion. That raised it past last year’s “Harry Potter” finale at $1.33 billion to put “The Avengers” at No. 3 in all-time revenue worldwide, also behind only “Avatar” ($2.8 billion) and “Titanic” ($2.2 billion). Ridley Scott’s “Alien” forerunner “Prometheus,” from 20th Century Fox, got off to a solid start overseas with $35 million in 15 markets ahead of its U.S. release Friday. Though not a direct prequel, “Prometheus” stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Theron in a sci-fi adventure that takes place decades before the action of “Alien” and is set in a similar world as that 1979 horror tale from filmmaker Scott. In one weekend, “Snow White & the Huntsman” pulled in nearly as much as the $62.4 million that the year’s previous Snow White adventure, “Mirror Mirror,” took in domestically over its entire run. “Mirror Mirror” was a fairy-tale comedy SEE BOX OFFICE PAGE 11

BOX OFFICE FROM PAGE 10 that appealed mainly to female crowds. Drawing well among male and female fans, “Snow White & the Huntsman” is an all-out action flick, with “Twilight” star Stewart as the princess, aided by a rugged man of arms (“Thor” star Hemsworth) to lead a battle against the evil queen (Theron). Despite strong revenues for the top-three movies, domestic business was down for the third-straight weekend compared to last summer. Receipts totaled $142 million, off 11 percent compared to the same weekend a year ago, when “X-Men: First Class” led with $55.1 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Overall revenues are running neck-andneck with the summer season of 2011, when Hollywood took in record cash between the first weekend of May and Labor Day. Boxoffice analysts had expected this summer to hurtle beyond that record, but so far, only a handful of films have paid off.

Big as “The Avengers” has been, it was this summer’s only hit until last weekend, with other May releases such as “Dark Shadows” and “Battleship” falling flat domestically. “I thought it was going to be like a rout, easy pickings to pick off last year’s revenue record,” said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “Now I think it’s going to be more of a tug-of-war. I still think we’ll get there, but it looks closer than it did at first.” In narrower release, Andy Garcia’s Mexican war drama “For Greater Glory” opened at No. 10 with $1.8 million in 757 theaters, for an average of $2,378 a cinema. That compared to an average of $14,910 in 3,773 theaters for “Snow White.” The Weinstein Co. horror sequel “Piranha 3DD” drowned in limited release of just 86 theaters, debuting with $179,000 for an average of just $2,081 a cinema. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

He writes that he at first didn’t grasp why some might object to the comment, but that subsequent conversations with his gay friends led him to realize

his insensitivity. Alexander’s remarks came in Friday’s show in which he tells host Craig Ferguson that aspects of cricket make it a “gay game” compared to other sports. The actor’s 1,000-word-plus “message of amends” said that the joking remark plays into “hurtful assumptions and diminishments” about people. Alexander also writes that as an actor with many gay friends, he “should know better.”

GETTING STARTED

SOLUTIONS TO YESTERDAY’S PUZZLE

There are many strategies to solving Sudoku. One way to begin is to examine each 3x3 grid and figure out which numbers are missing. Then, based on the other numbers in the row and column of each blank cell, find which of the missing numbers will work. Eliminating numbers will eventually lead you to the answer.

■ Suspicions Confirmed: In March, WTNH-TV in New Haven, Conn., obtained an "internal" police memorandum referencing a challenge from state troopers in one barracks to "outperform" colleagues in another barracks -- in writing traffic tickets. The memo, from Lt. Anthony Schirillo, refers to the need "to issue at least 60 infractions/misdemeanors each shift." "One day Troop F issued 301 tickets. Troop G responded by issuing 345 ... We can do better." "I am asking that everyone, myself included, contribute to this effort." "Note: If we happen to issue 350 tickets in one day that would be stellar." (The station spoke to Lt. Paul Vance of the Connecticut state police, who denied that quotas are given.) ■ Crime Does/Doesn't Pay: Convicted embezzler Antoinette Galluzzo, who admitted stealing more than $50,000 from a city youth agency in Englewood, N.J., was ordered in April to pay "restitution," but the amount Judge Eugene Austin settled on was $10 a month -- and only during the period of probation (three years). On the other hand, in federal court in New York City in April, Kerry Haggard, 47, was sent to prison for 6 1/2 years on one count of selling fake movie lobby posters.

TODAY IN HISTORY – The Tiananmen Square protests are violently ended in Beijing by the People's Liberation Army. – Ufa train disaster: A natural gas explosion near Ufa, Russia, kills 575 as two trains passing each other throw sparks near a leaky pipeline. – Marvin Heemeyer's (eventually suicidal) protest rampage with an improvised bulletproofed bulldozer destroys 13 Granby, Colorado buildings including the town hall.
