traffic stop on Colorado Avenue one recent day when an odd yet familiar sight caught her attention. Tied to the back of a truck heading south on Lincoln Boulevard was the Greyhound Bus sign that for decades stood on top of the terminal at 1433 Fifth St. “It just drove away,” Fresco said. A member of the Landmarks Commission, she immediately called the city staff liaison who deals with historic preservation matters, asking if there was any information about where the sign was headed. “It looked like it was tied in a way where

they were trying not to hurt it,” Fresco said.“It was not like it was being taken to the dump.” The disappearance of the sign, which is composed of a leaping greyhound above the word “bus,” was recently the topic of discussion at the commission’s meeting last week when officials debated whether to jump-start the process of historically designating the building’s iconic marker. But landmarking could prove difficult for a sign that is no longer in place. “We can’t file an application for something that’s not there,” Fresco said. The sign was taken down on May 28 — the same day the commissioner saw it — by the building’s new tenant, Comerica Bank, which is planning on opening its first Santa Monica branch in 2010. Alfredo Padilla, spokesman for Comerica Bank, said the sign was moved during reno-

vation in order to prevent damage. “The sign was removed with great care, placed upon pallets and shrink wrapped to be stored in a safe and secure location,” Padilla said. “We care about the sign and we know it’s very iconic in our community and we wanted to make sure there was no damage to it.” Comerica is planning on renovating the building, not demolishing it. “We’re doing some exterior upgrades and at the end of the day, we’re going to make sure it’s a good-looking branch for Comerica Bank,” Padilla said. Mark Romney, whose family has owned the property since developing it into a terminal in 1955, said he was well aware that the tenant was going to remove the sign SEE SIGN PAGE 8

SECOND STREET There are reminders every day that Maggie Hall will soon close out a 35-year career with Emeritus College, from the potted white orchid sitting on the conference table, to the bag of freshly-baked cookies on the desk, a gift from a student. Then there’s the giant poster hanging in the elevator, showing a smiling Hall, below it an invitation to an upcoming send-off. Her eyes well up with tears and voice wavers as she speaks of the support received from students over the past six months, hearing stories of how the college changed their lives, and in some cases, saved it. It was a reaction that Hall was not expecting. “You can’t put that much energy into something and not feel it made a difference,” she said. “The reaction of the students has been overwhelming.” The 62-year-old will retire at the end of this month, finishing a chapter of her life that started with Emeritus College’s founding as a secretary, working her way up the ladder to the associate dean. Born and raised in the Sunshine State, Hall, who always had dreams of being an educator, taught art at Pompano Beach High School in Florida for three years before relocating to California in 1971, working as a training assistant for Dean Witter for another three years.

L.A. cop reported gun stolen in Santa Monica THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES A police detective accused of killing her ex-boyfriend’s wife more than two decades ago reported her personal handgun stolen just weeks after the slaying, according to a published report. Stephanie Lazarus, 49, was arrested last week for the killing of Sherri Rasmussen on Feb. 24, 1986, when Lazarus had been with the Los Angeles Police Department force for two years.

Sometime in mid-March that year, Lazarus contacted the Santa Monica Police Department to report a theft from her car, which was parked near the pier, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday. She told police her gym bag had been stolen, containing clothes, cassettes, some money and her personal .38-caliber snub-nosed revolver, several LAPD and Santa Monica police sources familiar with the investigation told the Times. Police took a report, but the weapon was

never found. A Santa Monica police official confirmed the existence of the report and its contents to the Times. Investigators believe the weapon was used to kill Rasmussen, a 29-year-old nurse. Lazarus’ attorney, Mark Pachowicz, told the Times he had not received information from prosecutors about the allegedly stolen gun. He did not comment on the case further. Lazarus’ arraignment is set for July 6. The overlooked theft report represents a missed opportunity by investigators in 1986

to link Lazarus to the crime. She’d had a relationship with Rasmussen’s husband, John Ruetten, before they married and had allegedly had threatened Rasmussen before the killing. Rasmussen’s father has said, though he never knew Lazarus’ name, he told detectives at the time that his daughter had been threatened by an ex-girlfriend of Ruetten’s. Rasmussen was killed inside her home. Lazarus was eventually connected to the crime scene through DNA.

Trails and camping proposal in Malibu approved unanimously THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MALIBU Visitors to Malibu will soon be able to do more hiking and camping in one of the state’s most popular beachfront cities. The California Coastal Commission unanimously approved a plan by the Santa Monica Mountains conservancy to extend trails and allow overnight camping in Malibu’s coastal parks. The 12-member panel also denied a request by the city to outlaw camping within its borders despite the strong objections of residents. The conservancy wants to create 29 campsites and add 3.5 miles of canyon trails and trail connections in Ramirez Canyon, Escondido Canyon and Corral Canyon parks.

Council doesn’t get it Editor:

Tuesday evening, June 9, Santa Monica experienced a disaster the size of a Richter-10 quake. City Council upheld the appeal of Texas developer Trammel Crow to deny 301 Ocean a landmark designation. Trammel Crow plans to replace the building and its 47 viable rental units with 26 expensive condos. This not only threatens all of San Vicente and its lovely 1950s garden apartments with more take-downs by greedy developers but means years of congestion, dust, dirt, noise and a building that looked to me like a plastic Advent Calendar. Despite more than a hundred worried neighbors crowded into the icy meeting room and overflowing into the hall, despite 400 voters who had registered their preference on a petition, despite some 30 speakers from Clo Hoover’s granddaughter to Jerry Rubin arguing for the building, some members of the council didn’t get it. Landmarks Commission granted its designation on one of six criteria, no. 3, the building’s association with an important person. In this case it was Clo Hoover, the city’s first female mayor who saved us all from an island in the bay, a causeway to Malibu and many other horrors. Like most women she did much of her business at home, over the coffee table. Council members hesitated saying this was the first time for one such criteria to carry the case. Gleam Davis suggested that this might lead to landmarking Bob Holbrook’s home, though that threat didn’t seem eminent. She moved on to 301 Ocean’s architecture, which was not being considered in this regard. As the clock neared 11, and the crowd, who had arrived at 6:30, waited for a verdict, Bob Holbrook described growing up in Ocean Park. Only Bobby Shriver and Kevin McKeown got it. Shriver, said he came here to work in the 1970s and then sighed about trying to get a unit at 301 Ocean, a prime spot. McKeown cited references, L.A. Times articles, mention of the building’s Soviet Monica sign by someone in Leningrad and, most important neighborhood preservation. McKeown and Shriver voted to deny the developer’s appeal and let the landmark designation stand. Holbrook, Richard Bloom, Pam O’Connor (who chaired the meeting) and Gleam Davis voted for the developer’s appeal. Ken Genser recused himself saying windows of the apartment he rents in the adjacent Teriton face the soon-to-be demolished building. And at the end tired, sad, neighbors sidled out past Davis chatting with attorney Chris Harding the developer’s representative.

Landmarking process can’t save affordable housing

MANAGING EDITOR Daniel Archuleta daniela@smdp.com

STAFF WRITER Melody Hanatani melodyh@smdp.com

LAST TUESDAY EVENING, THE CITY

Council upheld an appeal of landmark designation for 301 Ocean Ave. Big developers won another victory. Gentrification in the form of more multi-million dollar luxury condos for the wealthy moves forward while the little guy gets kicked in the pants. Mayor Ken Genser recused himself because he lives near the property. Pam O’Connor, Robert Holbrook, Gleam Davis and Richard Bloom (who along with Genser, accepted a political contribution from developer Trammell Crow’s representative for his re-election bid last fall) voted for the appeal. Kevin McKeown and Bobby Shriver opposed it. There may be an argument for canceling the designation. The property, whose claim to fame was that it was co-owned by and a 45-year residence of Santa Monica’s first woman mayor, Clo Hoover, is not architecturally significant and has no other meaningful historical value. Clo Hoover’s credentials just weren’t weighty enough to warrant a landmark. Another item originally on last Tuesday’s agenda (and withdrawn) concerned the Christie Court at 125 Pacific St. in Ocean Park. It’s a 24-unit, 1924-era courtyard apartment building declared a landmark in 2004 even though the building had been stripped of much of its architectural decoration and extensively altered. Tenants and neighbors fought to landmark the building as an early example of coastal courtyard bungalow construction to stop the eviction of tenants, its demolition and construction of condominiums on the site. The developer appealed the Landmark Commission’s designation to the City Council, who upheld the appeal in 2005 and voided the landmark. The Christie Court still sits boarded up and empty, awaiting the wrecker’s ball. It’s a dumb idea to try to landmark a building with dubious historic or intrinsic value as a means to preserve existing older and/or affordable rental stock and avoid evictions. I’m for saving existing rent controlled/low income apartments, however concocting a flimsy story and invoking landmarking for preserving such residences is an abuse of the process and cheapens that which has real artistic or historic value. City Hall and its Santa Monicans for Renters’ Rights (SMRR) political machine must be more pro-active in protecting existing apartments and find a better way to do it because using landmarking to prevent new, larger, luxury developments will ultimately only delay such projects and ultimately fail in the end. City politicians and bureaucrats must develop a more fail-safe method to preserve older housing stock besides creating smokescreens. One could argue that the community lost in both cases because connections with our

past are rapidly vanishing. But, the real causalities are the tenants, many of whom are singles, seniors, low income workers, retirees, pensioners, and persons on limited incomes who’ve been forced from their homes and the community — some after a lifetime living here. I received an e-mail last Monday. It said, “I can’t believe you missed a tremendous opportunity to point out the elderly tenants at 301 Ocean Ave. have no city developed, low income, elderly housing to move to because the city has given CCSM (Community Corporation of Santa Monica, the city’s largest public housing provider) millions for multi-family housing and continues to engage in egregious discrimination against the elderly.” The e-mail referred to the fact that in the last decade virtually no deed-restricted senior housing has been funded or built by the city either through its affiliated CCSM or city-supported third parties. In the meantime, CCSM continues to build hundreds of units of two and three bedroom “family” housing, annually. The e-mailer suggested the city purchase 301 Ocean Ave. from Trammell Crow and turn it over to CCSM to operate as public housing for singles, seniors and the elderly. Fat chance of that happening. On May 19, director of Housing and Economic Development, Andy Agle, issued a memo regarding the city’s affordable housing trust fund commitments. The city acquired a $50-million line of credit of which over $44-million has been given to CCSM for the acquisition, rehabilitation and development of nine properties recently purchased around town. Out of a total of 161 units — strictly for both large and small families — 66 are remodels and not even adding any new housing to the city’s public housing stock! CCSM solicits potential tenants from East Los Angeles, Watts and other lower income Los Angeles County neighborhoods, as well as a limited number of local workers (who reside out of town with their families) for its public housing projects. Wednesday night, City Council prioritized another $43.6 million budget for affordable housing which, like previous CCSM projects, will not go to Santa Monicans forced out of their homes because of gentrification. Santa Monica’s long term singles and seniors who’ve been evicted/facing eviction have no place to go because the city has given CCSM millions of dollars to develop SMRR-voter-based family housing while ignoring Santa Monica’s most vulnerable residents. This must change. Landmark? Indeed. Bill Bauer can mr.bilbau@gmail.com

Go get ‘em, Nat NAT HENTOFF HAS HAD A LIFE WELL

spent, one chock full of controversy fueled by his passion for the protection of civil liberties and human rights. Hentoff is known as a civil libertarian, free speech activist, anti-death penalty advocate, pro-lifer and not uncommon critic of the ideological left. Born in Boston on June 10, 1925, Hentoff received a B.A. with honors from Northeastern University and did graduate work at Harvard. From 1953 to 1957, he was associate editor of Down Beat magazine. He has written many books on jazz, biographies and novels, including children’s books. Although Hentoff has always considered himself to be a liberal, his pro-life position is hardly tolerated by fellow left-wingers. Arguing that a human not yet born still counts as one of our species, with all the genetic information that makes each human being unique, Hentoff is almost alone when he makes the case as a liberal that human life in the womb should not be exterminated. When he first declared himself a pro-lifer, women in his Village Voice office stopped speaking to him. And although Hentoff had been invited to speak at Nazareth College in Rochester (a secular institution), he was uninvited two weeks before the lecture. Members on the lecture committee at Nazareth apparently felt that his stance on abortion was outside the limit of what students could safely hear. Although ACLU affiliates around the country had for years invited Hentoff to speak at fundraising dinners, after declaring himself a pro-lifer--and even though he agrees with most other ACLU policies--all such invitations stopped. Hentoff later resigned from the ACLU in protest of their position on assisted suicide, as well as their position against revealing the results of HIV tests on newborn babies. He has since re-joined the ACLU, citing his appreciation for their efforts to alert the country to the dangers posed by the Bush administration’s post-9/11 policies. Hentoff has even criticized the Democratic Party for its past practice of speaking about tolerance, yet tolerating no dissent within its ranks on the abortion issue. Nevertheless, men and women from all over the country identify with Hentoff, writing that they thought themselves to be the soli-

5

tary liberal pro-lifers in their office, at school and at home and were surprised to find Hentoff in the same position. Even some feminists are on his side--the Feminists for Life of America, for example. But with or without supporters, Hentoff ’s opinions remain principled and without hypocrisy. During Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign for the presidency, Hentoff set himself against the President, saying that Clinton “has done more harm to the Constitution than any president in American history.” Hentoff defied liberals who defended Clinton, whom he considered “a serial violator of our liberties” during his presidency. When I came under attack by the Clinton White House and was labeled part of the “vast right wing conspiracy” for being an attorney in the Paula Jones case, Hentoff came to my defense. Writing in the Washington Post, Hentoff called me a “conspirator for the Constitution,” citing my work on behalf of the Bill of Rights, and said the President could benefit from reading my weekly commentaries. Hentoff’s views on the rights of Americans to write, think and speak freely are expressed in his columns. He is also an authority on First Amendment defense, the Bill of Rights, the Supreme Court, students’ rights and education. Friends and critics alike describe him as the kind of writer, and citizen, that all should aspire to be--"less interested in ‘exclusives’ than in ‘making a difference.’” Critiquing Hentoff ’s autobiography, Speaking Freely, Nicholas von Hoffman refers to him as “a trusting man, a gentle man, just and undeviatingly consistent.” Nat Hentoff has earned the well-deserved reputation of being one of our nation’s most respected, controversial and uncompromising writers. He began his career at the Village Voice because he wanted a place to write freely on anything he cared about. And his departure from the publication has neither dampened his zeal nor tempered his voice. For Nat Hentoff, like his mentor Izzy Stone, will never lose his sense of rage. Constitutional attorney and author John W. Whitehead is founder and president of The Rutherford Institute. He can be contacted at johnw@rutherford.org. Information about The Rutherford Institute is available at www.rutherford.org.

DWINDLING POPULATION: Fewer than 5,000 Eastern Lowland Gorillas are estimated to remain in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), formerly known as Zaire (they numbered 17,000 in 1995). Habitat loss, hunting, and war and violence are combining to push them over the edge. Pictured: a female Eastern Lowland Gorilla in the Antwerp Zoo, Belgium.

Has the recent violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo threatened the populations of lowland gorillas? How many are left?

Glenn Hammond San Francisco, Calif.

THE

SHORT

ANSWER

IS

YES,

dramatically. Not to be confused with Western Lowland Gorillas, which are thriving in significant numbers in neighboring Congo (a recent census counted 125,000), today fewer than 5,000 Eastern Lowland Gorillas are estimated to remain in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), formerly known as Zaire. Some 17,000 inhabited the region as recently as 1994, but today habitat loss, hunting, and war and violence are combining to push them over the edge. Following the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, an influx of refugees, along with bloodthirsty militias, moved across the border into the neighboring DRC. These militias set up training grounds in the very forests the gorillas call home, making conservation work impractical to say the least. Park rangers, game wardens and wildlife researchers either fled their wooded beats or were removed at gunpoint. In the wake of this, civilian populations in the affected areas still had to make ends meet somehow. So hunting for so-called “bushmeat,” and cutting down the forest for firewood, charcoal and space for agricultural plots became the means for day-to-day survival, and continue to this day. Some 91 percent of the human population in the region practice subsistence agriculture. This

means that large swaths of gorilla habitat throughout the region have been converted to farms. At the same time, 96 percent of the locals rely on firewood as their main supply of energy for warmth and cooking. “Forested parks are for many of them the last remaining source of fuel,” reports the Year of the Gorilla website. Because the violence has been so persistent and the research areas so vulnerable, scientists don’t really know how badly Eastern Lowland Gorilla populations have been affected. The Year of the Gorilla Project, in conjunction with the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF), the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and other groups, is working to reinstate regular monitoring and effective surveillance of the remaining Eastern Lowland Gorilla population throughout Kahuzi-Biega National Park, where armed factions have proliferated. “The last reliable data on population size and distribution were recorded in 1995, and it is suspected that the population has shrunk dramatically since,” reports the Year of the Gorilla Web site. “New, precise information will be one outcome of this project, enabling intelligent and effective approaches to the conservation of this rare species.” Biologists, environmentalists and wildlife fans the world over are certainly hoping for the best, and will no doubt continue to watch what happens as the fate of some of our closest relatives on the planet hangs in the balance.

ACT! Database Coaching FREE CONSULTATION

Possible former residence of Popeye’s creator landmarked FROM SIGN PAGE 1

and expects to receive it in the next few days. “They didn’t do anything wrong,” he said. Romney, who works at the University of California at Davis as a research facilities planner, said he isn’t sure what to do with the sign but is willing to donate it to City Hall or a local museum. A single parent, Romney’s grandmother took over the Greyhound terminal on Sixth Street more than a half century ago and turned around a business that had been suffering, later acquiring the property on Fifth Street. Greyhound moved out of the Fifth Street building in 1994 and two years later, Richard and Agnes Thaler opened a fitness studio in its place called Bus Wellness. While the rooftop Greyhound sign remained, all other reminders of the building’s past were removed. In 2000, Shelter Furniture moved into the building and stayed until February 2007, after which Comerica Bank obtained a lease. Romney said that the sign is very important to the family but thinks there could be issues with landmarking it. “It’s a good honor but it limits or restricts your ability to redevelop the land in the future,” he said. Few signs have been landmarked in the city. Another iconic symbol, the Zucky’s sign, which stands above the old deli, was landmarked in 2005. The building, located at 431 Wilshire Blvd., is today a First Republic Bank. Romney grew up in Santa Monica but moved to Sacramento at the age of 6. He often visited during the summer and worked at the bus terminal. “There’s lots of great memories,” he said. “It’s more sentimental than anything else.” LANDMARKING THE POPEYE’S CREATOR?

The commission voted to landmark an 82-year-old commercial building at the corner of Broadway and Fourth Street where the creator of Popeye, Elzie Crisler Segar, is

WE CARE ABOUT THE SIGN AND WE KNOW IT’S VERY ICONIC IN OUR COMMUNITY AND WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO IT.” Alfredo Padilla Spokesman, Comerica Bank

believed to have once lived. The building, which includes portions that are both two and three stories, was constructed at 1501 Fourth St. in 1927 to serve as a “one-stop” center for construction companies who were members of the Bay Builders Exchange. It is also believed to have housed a studio for Segar, whose comic about the spinachpowered sailor man debuted in January of 1929. A city staff report noted that while oral history indicates that Segar occupied the studio space the same year the comic was originally published, there are no supporting records on file. Instead, city directories list the late cartoonist as having lived at 703 15th St. in 1928 and 350 17th St. from 1930 to 1938. The commission landmarked the property based not on Segar’s possible affiliation with the Bay Builders Exchange Building, but rather for its architectural significance, designed in the Churrigueresque style, a type of Spanish baroque. “It has incredible Churrigueresque detailing that references our seaside locations with dolphins,” Fresco said. “It is just a beautifully-designed building.” melodyh@smdp.com

Hall unsure what to do in retirement FROM CP PAGE 1 Hoping to reenter education, Hall came to Santa Monica College where she was assigned to be a secretary for a new advisory group that would lay the groundwork for Emeritus College, a school that would be dedicated to the senior community. Emeritus means “retired with honor.” The school opened its doors with about 20 instructors who taught roughly 10 classes for 75 people. Today the program has about 116 class offerings and an enrollment of about 3,100 students. Many courses are unique to older citizens, such as a business class on estate planning. About a year after joining SMC, Hall was promoted to adult education instructor, moving up to assistant dean in adult education for Emeritus after another year. She was named associate dean of the college 10 years later. Her responsibilities involve overseeing student services, building operations and maintenance, doing everything from hiring faculty to helping develop programs. A major role in her position as associate dean involves fundraising to keep the college running. Those donations also helped fund the development of Emeritus College’s current campus five years ago. The college was previously operated out of 13 different locations throughout the city, most recently at the SMPD substation just a few blocks from the current campus. Coupled with donations and money from a voterapproved bond, the college was able to purchase the property where the campus sits today for about $8 million. Tenant improvements for the building came out to about $2.5 million, Hall said. “It was exhausting, trying and difficult but a fun thing to do,” she said. Hall has also taught a few courses.

She remembers one day teaching a class on art appreciation, analyzing a piece that hangs in the Prado in Spain. “I’m explaining it and one of my students begins explaining something he liked about the picture,” she said. “ I asked have you seen it and he said yes I’ve been to the Prado.” Hall then turned to the rest of the students and asked how many have been to the Prado. More than a dozen hands shot up. “Then you get to tell me your reaction to the painting and how you liked it,” Hall told the class. She called the moment an eye opener as a younger person who didn’t have anything on the students in terms of life experience. “They had been there and seen it and their goal was to analyze and think about the creative process,” she said. “I was stuck still looking at a book because at that time we didn’t have Internet and travel was not an option.” Hall has since been to the museum and seen the painting in person. “It’s gorgeous,” she said. Retirement plans have yet to be determined for Hall, who will take about six months to a year off before deciding where to donate her time, perhaps to a nonprofit. After she announced her retirement, Hall began hearing stories from students about how the college changed their lives, some establishing good friendships, others finding love. If it’s one thing she learned while at Emeritus College, it’s that senior citizens are a very strong group of people. “They’re very experienced and very successful individuals and they’re curious about modern society,” she said. “They are a tremendous resource in the community and I will miss them.” melodyh@smdp.com

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Take an overview when dealing with hot situations. Your ability to process things marks your decisions. Pressure builds, as an unexpected request heads in your direction. Don't forget a boss or older relative's request. Tonight: Burning the midnight oil.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★ Stay centered, even if too many people surround you and are making too many demands. You do need to handle others by establishing limits. Tonight: Order in. It's easy — remember?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★★★ Keep reaching out for someone at a distance. Your caring makes you wonder if you could live closer to this person. Discussions provide options in nearly any situation. A key friend or loved one plays a role. Tonight: Be spontaneous.

★★★★ Keep communication active, and don't let a conversation fall prey to an emotional attitude, be it yours or someone else's. Your ability to move past an issue marks your success. Someone at a distance or an expert could be difficult to reach. Let this go for now. Tonight: Hang out.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Open up conversations, and look at new possibilities and ideas. Do your best to clear out a problem that could weigh on other areas of your life. People might astound you with their actions! Tonight: Honor your desires.

Happy birthday

★★★★★ With the Moon in your sign, you might feel empowered and on top of your game. Listen to feedback that heads in your direction. You don't need to negotiate or compromise an idea, despite a negative reaction. Tonight: Whatever makes you smile.

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

This year, watch for a discrepancy between your actions and your words. Often, you could be on overload and just react. Sometimes your automatic reaction will wind up sabotaging your long-term interests. Frequently, because of your output, you become tired. Take needed breaks. Get enough sleep. If you are single, establishing a relationship will require detachment. An unusual person walks into your life. If you are attached, the two of you might bond more closely from a workshop together or a long-coveted trip. Indulge your family and loved ones. PISCES has a unique skill and can toss your life into chaos.

SHEPARD

■ (1) When retired NYPD officer John Comparetto was approached at gunpoint in a men's room of a Holiday Inn near Harrisburg, Pa., in March, he quietly handed over his wallet, but when the robber left, Comparetto pulled his own gun and gave chase. He also summoned some of the other 300 narcotics officers attending a convention in the hotel and quickly captured the man, who, said Comparetto, is "probably the dumbest criminal in Pennsylvania." (2) A 27-year-old woman in Lexington Park, Md., was injured in March during apparently consensual sex play. Her partner placed a "sex toy" over a saber saw blade, apparently to act as a souped-up vibrator, but the blade cut through the toy and caused serious lacerations, requiring her to be med-evac'ed to Prince George's Hospital Center. ■ In 1993 India Scott dated both Darryl Fletcher and Brandon Ventimeglia when she lived in Detroit and moved in with Fletcher in 1994 when she was about to give birth. Neither knew about the other, and she had told each man he was the father. For two difficult years, Scott somehow managed to juggle the men's visitations, but in March 1997 when she announced she was leaving the area, both Fletcher and Ventimeglia separately filed for custody of "his" son. Only then did Ventimeglia and Fletcher find out about each other. They took blood tests to determine which was the real father of the boy they had cared for for more than two years, and in May 1997 the blood test revealed that neither was.
