Civic Auditorium celebrates 50 years with new purpose

Since 2001: A news odyssey

BY ALICE OLLSTEIN Special to the Daily Press

SANTA MONICA The Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, which has hosted everyone from Frank Sinatra to The Grateful Dead, will turn 50 this year. But far from having a mid-life crisis, the auditorium will celebrate its age this August as it looks forward to a new purpose. Located at 1855 Main St., the Civic was funded by a voter-approved bond act in 1956 and opened in 1958. Designed by Welton Becket, the architect behind the Capitol Records Building, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the Cineramadome, the venue has seen countless award shows, rock concerts, sporting events, conventions and banquets. Several Academy Awards were held at the Civic in the 1960s, including the historic 1964 event when Sidney Poitier accepted the first Oscar ever given to an African American. Stairway of the Stars, the district-wide student concert that showcases Santa Monica’s young talent, has been a Civic tradition since 1959. Currently, the Civic management, lead by Auditorium Manager Carole Curtin, is in the process of redefining the building’s place in the community. According to Curtin, the Civic will factor into City Hall’s cultural master plan, “Creative Capital,” which recommends that the venue be “re-purposed” as a performing and visual arts center this coming fall. "In the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s, concerts were the mainstay of the Civic,” Curtin explained. “But now we mostly do exhibits, such as art, jewelry and antiques, with only a smattering of concerts.” She explained that the big acts the Civic used to get — including the Beach Boys and Bob Dylan — have moved on to L.A.’s bigger venues, though the Creative Capital team found through surveys that 80 percent of Santa Monica residents find the idea of small venues for music “appealing” or “very appealing.” This summer will mark the start of a “repurposing” for the Civic, including a master plan that will come out of open community forums. Furthermore, while the façade of the building cannot be altered due to its status as an official historical landmark, the building will receive a minor facelift for its 50th birthday. Outlined goals include “state-of-the-art technical capacity and audience amenities” and

Principal bids farewell to St. Monica TAKING IT ALL IN after 23 years

Brandon Wise brandonw@smdp.com Guests at Santa Monica College's 'So Fly' art exhibit on Friday night at the Performing Arts Center and Music Academy view an untitled oil on canvas work created by student Christina Strok. Works by SMC students will be on display through the month.

WILMONT Every morning for the past 23 years, Joan Morris has started her day promptly at 4 a.m., up before the earliest of early risers, out on the road at a time when the truck drivers outnumber the cars, all to beat Los Angeles traffic to reach her desk at St. Monica Elementary at a reasonable hour. That routine will soon end as Morris at the end of June will retire from her more than two-decade administrative career at the Catholic elementary school in Santa Monica. “As I’ve gotten older, (the hours) are more of a struggle,” Morris, 64, said. “I go to bed early at 8:30 p.m., sometimes get home around 4:30 p.m..” “A lot of the time I’m gone 12 hours from where I live,” the long-time San Pedro resident said. “I still love (teaching), but it’s just harder to do.” SEE CP PAGE 8

Father’s Day turns sour for some travelers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ONTARIO John Ehrlich says he’s heard quite a few excuses from airlines about flight delays. But the one given to him on Sunday that prevented him from spending his Father’s Day at a New York Mets game with his three sons was a first. Scheduled to leave for New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on a Jet Blue red-eye flight, Ehrlich and more than 100 other passengers were told their departure would be pushed back until the flight attendants, delayed by an East Coast thunderstorm, received their mandatory nine-hour break. Ehrlich said the airline initially promised a several-hour delay, but it eventually turned into an overnight stay at the Ontario International Airport as grouchy passengers huddled up in chairs and slept on the floor waiting for a back-up crew to arrive.

“Affordable patio dining everyday!”

“It’s unbelievable to me how they could send a plane out and the plane is gassed up and ready to go and they can’t send it out because the flight crew must take a mandatory break,” said Ehrlich, 55, of Westchester, N.Y. “If that was the case they should have sent along two or three extra crew members.” Bryan Baldwin, a spokesman for Jet Blue, said thunderstorms on the East Coast delayed the jet from arriving at Ontario for six hours. The plane, with a new flight attendant crew scrambled from nearby, took off for New York at 10 a.m. Sunday. The attendants who work the flight from New York to Ontario normally accompany the plane back, Baldwin said. After it was delayed, federal regulations wouldn’t allow putting them back on board sooner. “Flight attendants usually do the turnaround,” he said. “We have pilots ready to go, but we normally don’t have a flight attendant

crew. We try to plan ahead as much as we can.” Airline passengers can expect a rough summer as carriers pass along higher fares and service charges because of record fuel prices. Data released last month by the U.S. Transportation Department showed nearly 30 percent of domestic flights were late or canceled in March. Flight attendants whose shifts are 14 hours or less are entitled to a rest period of at least nine consecutive hours, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The break can be reduced to eight consecutive hours if the flight attendant is provided a subsequent rest period of at least 10 consecutive hours, the FAA said. Ehrlich, an advertising salesman, was frustrated that he wouldn’t be able to go to the Mets game with his sons. SEE TRAVEL PAGE 9

Unleashing the growth monster

Not so fast Editor:

Contrary to the response to question of the week by one person, gays who marry will not be entitled to social security and medicare benefits and any other federal benefit because this is not a federal law but a state law. In order for gays to collect federal benefits the fed government would have to enact a law and I think that is highly unlikely. The only benefits these people will receive will be from the state and if the amendment is voted in November they will receive nothing.

Fishing lessons Editor:

Weldon Berger’s “cost effective” approach to homelessness suggest that if we don’t provide housing for our indigents they will bankrupt our city. I doubt that, as Santa Monica is one of the wealthiest small cities in the world. Wealthy enough to target millions of dollars for homeless services that are anything but cost effective. The feeding and other free services may foster dependency and attract more homeless to our parks, alleys and libraries, but much more of the funding is absorbed by the social service bureaucracy than trickles down to the genuinely needy. It would be interesting to see an ongoing budget of how those revenues are allocated. It seems a more pragmatic approach to homelessness is the old Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." Granted that many of our indigents are substance abusers, or off their meds, and resist any kind of personal responsibility, but fostering dependency succeeds no better than punitive approaches. Both only aggravate the problem and enable, rather than developing self sufficiency.

Save the bison Editor:

If you have ever been in the presence of a wild bison roaming freely on the land, you truly have been blessed. If you have never been in the presence of these magnificent creatures, then you truly do not know what you are missing. I have been blessed by the opportunity to have visited these splendid creatures when my husband and I were traveling to Yellowstone in 1993 on vacation. We stopped outside of Yellowstone National park and viewed them roaming. To see them in person is quite an experience to say the least. I am deeply concerned for the preservation and safety of these free roaming bison. I understand that some ranchers are concerned about a possible transfer of a disease called brucellosis to their livestock, but this has been an unproven risk. We cannot endanger these magnificent creatures on an unproven concern. When the bison are gone, they will be gone forever. We cannot let that happen to them and to lose them would be to lose a living legend in our great United States of America. We all need to be concerned for these great creatures so they are no longer slaughtered for doing what they instinctually do, roam freely for food and shelter. With so few bison left, how can we not protect them?

LAST MONDAY, IN AN ARTICLE ON

traffic, the Los Angeles Times took the 1988 Santa Monica City Council to task for approving the Water Garden project, knowing that its traffic mitigation measures were highly inadequate. When council debated the development in January and February of 1988, they knew the project would worsen traffic along city streets and the 10 freeway. They made developer, J.H. Snyder, Co., pay for some upgrades to adjacent streets and approved the project anyway, noting that its economic benefits outweighed any traffic impacts. Economics yield to pubic benefit in the “strategy framework” Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE) update to the city’s general plan undergoing another council review tomorrow night. This “blueprint for the future” sets general guidelines for land use and transportation in Santa Monica for the next 20-plus years. It’s available online at www.shapethefuture2025.net and scarier than any horror story you’re likely to come across. It begins ominously, “New development results in tangible benefits to the community such as new affordable and workforce housing opportunities.” The lengthy plan then outlines dozens and dozens of mixeduse development possibilities, all with “new workforce and affordable housing” — after stating that the city should “not be over taken by growth and congestion.” LUCE advocates “linking land use to transportation, reducing ecological footprints and moving the city towards sustainability.” The plan promises that LUCE principles will achieve more affordable and workforce housing (again), shared parking, access to transit, enhanced pedestrian shopping, better transportation alternatives (to the car) and encourage future growth at transit corridors (major thoroughfares). This flossy rhetoric might sound good at first, but LUCE contradicts itself repeatedly and provides virtually no substantiation for any of it’s lofty assertions and idealistic conclusions. In outlining mobility, LUCE outlines improved walking and pedestrian experiences by “giving bicyclists and pedestrians the ability to move quickly and comfortably throughout the city” and eliminating dependency on cars. LUCE promises wider sidewalks and medians, extensive bike lane networks, crosswalk curb bumpouts, light rail at-grade crossings, etc., throughout the city without creating additional congestion. If LUCE can accomplish this, I can make an elephant disappear. Overall, LUCE’s “smart growth” principles based on the haziest of assumptions and wishful thinking are a blueprint for disaster. Most Santa Monicans just want less traffic congestion, less development and more convenient parking. Less parking, more workforce housing,

wider sidewalks and streets that are “active 17 hours a day/7 days a week” aren’t high priorities for most of us. I’m not to sure how much of this benefits current residents but it surely serves the agenda’s of the progressives and socialists in City Hall — and that’s just the tip of this LUCE-berg. For example, LUCE would keep Santa Monicans healthy by encouraging walking and bicycling. What’s next? Free gym memberships? Since when was personal exercise a more important urban planning criteria then being able to drive to work, school and shopping safely and conveniently? Here, where “nanny” government reigns over common sense, the stress of being stuck in constant traffic jams and the health impacts from breathing tons of car and bus exhaust spewing into the air from gridlocked vehicles are ignored. LUCE envisions large, combination commercial and residential developments along major streets with — here it comes again — workforce and affordable housing elements that trigger even greater height and density. Get ready for multistory developments like the proposed “The Village” in the Civic Center in “neighborhood centers” at major intersections such as at Wilshire Boulevard and 14th Street, Pico and Lincoln boulevards, Wilshire and Centinela Avenue and many more. LUCE even encourages multistory “workforce and affordable housing” above car dealer showrooms. Key thoroughfares will become home to high rent boutiques and residential addresses for thousands of new tenants. A former planning commissioner told me that the LUCE “outcome” was in place before the consultants who helped develop the plan were hired. Its conclusions were already “embedded in the assumptions and approach outlined in the Request for Proposals.” All those ballyhooed “Motion by the Ocean” public meetings were specifically designed to sell us on a predetermined course of action. They were loaded with city bureaucrats; politicos; developers; smart growth, sustainable, public housing and bicycle advocates who pressed their agendas time and again. By ignoring most real community needs, LUCE is another poorly crafted monument to City Hall’s ongoing social engineering experimentation. Despite its claims, LUCE provides little in public benefit — unless you’re a bicyclist or a pro-development smart growther. LUCE promises we can have our cake and eat it, too. Nonsense. In future columns, I’ll study LUCE’s good points (there are some) and bad points including why it will produce substantially more development, traffic congestion and further deteriorate our quality of life while falling far short of its noble “sustainable” goals.

Your child Is not state property

So this week’s Q-Line question asks: Do you plan to travel this summer? Call (310) 285-8106 before Friday at 5 p.m. and we’ll print your answers in the weekend edition of the Daily Press. Please limit responses to a minute or less.

arrogant assertion of state control over the minds of all school-age children residing within its borders. Education, like nutrition, should be recognized as the exclusive domain of a child’s parents, within legal limits objectively defining child abuse and neglect. Parents who starve their children may properly be ordered to fulfill their parental obligations, on pain of losing legal custody. But the fact that some parents may serve better food than others does not permit government to seize control of nutrition, outlaw homecooked meals, and order all children to report for daily force-feeding at government-licensed cafeterias. The shockwaves from Justice Croskey’s decision will likely impact not just homeschoolers but also the apologists for government education—teachers’ unions, educational bureaucrats, and politicians. What if, in the harsh glare of the “Rachel L.” case, parents start asking whether the state has any right at all to be running schools and dictating educational standards for children, in order to advance society’s “interests"? This calls into question the moral foundation of public education as such. In this light, one wonders if the court’s decision to rehear the case could be a first step toward muting, and muddying, the controversy. For their part, the defenders of public schooling can be expected to stay busy papering over their system’s own failures— the very failures that helped fuel the homeschooling movement, by driving desperate parents to seek refuge at home from the irrationality, violence, and mediocrity that have come to characterize government education, in California and elsewhere. For now, at least, the battle lines are clearly drawn. Are parents mere drudges whose social duty is to feed and house their spawn between mandatory indoctrination sessions at government-approved schools? Or are they sovereign individuals whose right to guide their children’s development the state may not infringe? The answer could determine not only the future of homeschooling but the future of education in America. THOMAS A. BOWDEN is an analyst at the Ayn Rand Institute, focusing on legal issues.

criticism, the Los Angeles County court that declared homeschooling illegal in California has agreed to rehear the case in June. At issue is Justice H. Walter Croskey’s Feb. 28 decree, which ordered the parents of “Rachel L.” to send her away to a public or private school, where she can get a “legal education.” Justice Croskey’s edict interpreted state education laws that govern all children, whatever their home situation and “whatever the quality” of their home education. Except for the rare case when parents already hold state teaching credentials, parents who find public schools intolerable and cannot locate or afford a suitable private school were branded by the decree as outlaws if they choose to instruct their child at home. California legislators were entitled to enact this blanket prohibition, according to the judge, because they feared the supposed social disorder that would result from “allowing every person to make his own standards on matters of conduct in which society as a whole has important interests.” “Allowing"? By what right does government presume to “allow” (or, in this case, forbid) you to make your own standards concerning your child’s education? Government has no such right. Neither the state nor “society as a whole” has any interests of its own in your child’s education. A society is only a group of individuals, and the government’s only legitimate function is to protect the individual rights of its citizens, including yours and your children’s, against physical force and fraud. The state is your agent, not a separate entity with interests that can override your rights. If Justice Croskey’s description of California law is correct, then the state’s educational policy is at odds with America’s founding principles. Parents are sovereign individuals whose right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness includes the right to control their child’s upbringing. Instead, a proper legal system recognizes and protects parents’ moral right to pursue the personal rewards and joys of child-raising. At every stage, you have a right to set your own standards and act on them without government permission. This parental right to control your child’s upbringing includes the right to manage his education, by choosing an appropriate school or personally educating him at home. Of course, there are certain situations in which government must step in to protect the rights of a child, as in cases of physical abuse or neglect. But no such concern for individual rights can account for California’s

Google grows stronger in Microsoft-Yahoo fallout BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE AP Business Writer

SAN FRANCISCO Microsoft Corp.’s abandoned takeover bid for Yahoo Inc. appears to have culminated with a disheartening thud for those two companies but amounted to yet another coup for online search leader Google Inc. What began in January as Microsoft’s most audacious attack yet on Google instead paved the way for the Internet’s most powerful company to gain even more clout through a deal that gives Google access to a large chunk of Yahoo’s advertising space. By submitting to a partnership that endorses Google’s search advertising technology as a better choice than its own, Yahoo is giving online marketers even more incentive to spend most of their money with its biggest rival, according to industry analysts. It looks like such a sweet deal for Google that the U.S. Justice Department and lawmakers are expected to take a hard look at the arrangement to make sure it doesn’t give Google too much control over the Internet’s search advertising market. Google currently has about 75 percent of the U.S. search advertising market followed by Yahoo at 9 percent, according to the research firm eMarketer Inc. Although they contend their alliance won’t lessen competition, Google and Yahoo have agreed to wait until late September to begin working together so the U.S. government has more time to assess the potential impact. Even more importantly to Google, the Yahoo partnership keeps a potentially valuable weapon out of Microsoft’s control. Without Yahoo’s renowned franchise, Microsoft once again is scrambling to find a way to fix its unprofitable online operations and narrow Google’s commanding lead in the Internet’s rapidly growing ad market. Google shares gained $18.56 to close Friday at $571.51 while Microsoft shares added 83 cents to close at $29.07 — an indication that some investors were relieved the world’s largest software maker concluded it would be too expensive and troublesome to buy Yahoo. On the other side of the fence, Yahoo shareholders had been clinging to the possibility that Microsoft would revive its last offer of $47.5 billion, or $33 per share, to buy the Internet pioneer. But those hopes evaporated late Thursday after Yahoo disclosed Microsoft had “unequivocally” rebuffed an attempt to renew the negotiations. In a sign of investors’ frustration, Yahoo shares dropped as much as $1.77, or 7.5 percent, Friday before rallying late in the session to finish at $23.47, down five cents. The downturn marked Yahoo’s lowest stock price since it closed at $19.18 at the end of January, just before Microsoft launched its takeover attempt. That leaves Yahoo’s market value 29 percent below Microsoft’s last offer, which was withdrawn May 3 after Yahoo asked for $37 per share. Yahoo’s stock hasn’t reached that price since January 2006. At least Microsoft still has a strong, highly profitable backbone — a suite of software products that run most computers around the world. Yahoo, though, may have made a Faustian bargain by hiring Google to show ad links next to a significant portion of the ad links appearing alongside search results on its Web site in the United States and Canada.

The Sunnyvale-based company also will pluck Google ads to show on other Web sites in its marketing network. Yahoo expects its annual revenue to get an $800 million lift from the arrangement with Google while still showing show the majority of its own ads alongside its own search results. But most analysts viewed it as an act of desperation, asserting it’s only a matter of time before advertisers shift all their business to Google because they know their messages will show up on Yahoo either way. Deutsche Bank analyst Jeetil Patel described Yahoo’s decision to farm out advertising to Google as “one of the worst strategic maneuvers seen in the Internet industry.” Google will get such great access to Yahoo’s highly trafficked Web site that it should be able to gather more insights about the correlation between search requests and advertising, ThinkPanmure analyst William Morrison wrote in a Friday research note titled “Giving Away The Store (To Google).” And that additional data could help Google further improve its advertising formula to become an even more compelling marketing magnet. The partnership also cast doubt on a turnaround plan Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang began drawing up year ago after he replaced Terry Semel as the Sunnyvale-based company’s chief executive. A big part of that strategy hinged on Yahoo becoming a “must-buy” for advertisers — a strategy that the Google deal appears to contradict. “This raises very important questions about the long-term vision for (Yahoo) and its place in the industry,” said Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Derek Brown. Yahoo shareholders will get a chance to vent their frustration at the company’s annual meeting Aug. 1 when activist investor Carl Icahn will seek to replace the board with nine alternate candidates. Icahn was primarily interested in selling Yahoo to Microsoft, so his campaign to replace the board may be hurt if he can’t persuade shareholders he has other viable ideas on how to boost Yahoo’s stock price. He didn’t return a call seeking comment Friday. Yang and his top lieutenant, Susan Decker, defended the Google deal as a profitable move that will better position the company to capitalize on the Internet advertising market’s growth from roughly $40 billion worldwide this year to a projected $75 billion to $80 billion market in 2011. Microsoft contends it offered Yahoo a better alternative even after losing interest in buying the entire company. When the latest talks broke off June 8, Microsoft was prepared to buy Yahoo’s search operations for $1 billion and pay $35 per share to accumulate $8 billion worth of Yahoo’s stock, according to a person familiar with Microsoft’s thinking. Microsoft also would have offered guarantees that could have boosted Yahoo’s operating cash flow by an estimated $1 billion annually, according to this person, who couldn’t be identified because the discussions were considered confidential. Microsoft left the door open to renewing talks about buying Yahoo’s search operations. Yahoo also gave itself some wiggle room by including a clause in the Google partnership that would end the alliance for a termination fee of up to $250 million. Some analysts and investors still think Microsoft eventually might try to buy Yahoo.

St. Monica flourished during Morris’ tenure FROM CP PAGE 3 Morris, a native San Franciscan, was hired as the principal by former pastor, Monsignor Anthony Duval, in 1985, beginning her term that summer. She’s been a popular figure on the small 278-student campus that was founded in 1930 by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, the principal often out in the playground during recess, able to immediately call students by their first names. “The word principal means master teacher and there’s no question that Joan was the master teacher all these 23 years at St. Monica Elementary,” Monsignor Lloyd Torgerson said. “She knew every kid by name, she was involved in all the lives of the family of that community and she was an extraordinary woman of integrity.” It was in the convent when Morris was given the option of either becoming a teacher or a nurse. Often fainting at a sight of blood, Morris opted for a career in education. “I said ‘I guess I’ll be a teacher,’” Morris said. “Here we are 41 years later.” Her teaching career included a stint as principal of Our Lady of Victory in Compton during the 1970s, teaching for the first six years at the school and serving as the head administrator the final two. She eventually took a leave from education to begin working on a child nutritional program that was affiliated with Our Lady of Victory, working with other principals who served in low-income area schools. The program started with 18 schools and by the end of Morris’ seven-year run as the coordinator, more than 80 schools had come on board. Feeling the teaching itch, Morris decided

to re-enter the educational field when she was contacted by Duval, though she originally turned the offer down because of the long commute from her home in San Pedro. “I got to thinking that weekend and I live in San Pedro, surrounded by three bodies of water and realized I will have to travel,” she said. “I called him back and said I will meet with you, came out and liked him and found out he was a former educator.” That attribute about Duval seemed to be the selling point. “A lot of pastors don’t understand schools and he did because he had been an assistant at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana,” she said.

Morris took the job and never looked back. The school is said to have remained strong during Morris’ 23 years, a time when teacher retention has been high with many educators staying for more than 15 years. The school has also earned a number of accolades, including the “Spotlight School Award” by KNBC. The school has also earned full six-year, no restriction accreditations from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges four times since Morris’ arrival. Parents have also sung her praises. “We’ve been blessed by her guidance,” Valerie Shore, the president of the Parent

Teacher Council at St. Monica Elementary, said. “She’s really embraced the parent body and I felt like there’s been a collaboration to work with her.” St. Monica is a kindergarten through eighth grade institution with about 31-32 students per grade level. About 80 percent of the students reside in the Westside, the remainder attending the school because their parents work in Santa Monica. Approximately 94 percent end up moving on to a Catholic high school, roughly 58 percent of which go on to St. Monica High School. While the majority of the students are Catholic, there are kids from other faiths, making up roughly 10 percent of the population. “We have great diversity among our students, not only ethnically, but cultural, socio-economically and with children of other faiths,” Morris said. “It prepares them for life, it’s a microcosm of the world.” Morris said she doesn’t have any plans to return to teaching and will take some time to gather her thoughts to plan her next step. One thing for certain is she wants to remain close to home, which reminds her of San Francisco, the one reason why she chose San Pedro. “I’m going to take some time, travel over the summer and unwind myself and figure out what’s next,” she said. “I’m not going to stay home and clean out the closet all day.” Morris will be replaced by Sharon Dandorf, currently the principal at Daniel Murphy High School, a Catholic all-boys school in Los Angeles that will be closed at the end of the academic year. Dandorf has already attended several school functions to familiarize herself with St. Monica, including attending the eighth grade graduation last week. “I believe the school will continue to grow and prosper and she can take it to a new level,” Morris said.

COOL BREEZE: Don't want to turn on the A.C.? Fans use considerably less electricity than air conditioners and can do a pretty good job of making sure you don't get dogged by the heat.

Staying cool during dog days of summer Dear EarthTalk Summer’s going to be a scorcher this year, and I’d like to know how I can keep cool indoors without just running my energy-hogging air conditioners all the time. Any tips?

John McGovern Cohasset, MA

According to Harvey Sachs of the nonprofit American Council for an EnergyEfficient Economy, the movement of air over the skin is what’s key to keeping the body cool. So instead of turning on that A.C., see which direction the breeze is blowing outside (no matter how minimal it may be), and then open a few windows strategically to try to get it flowing through the house from end-to-end or side-to-side. If the breeze alone isn’t enough, apply some fan power. Even small tabletop fans, which can be had for $30 or so at Target and similar stores, can really whip the air around. Placing one facing in by the window where air is coming in, and one at an opposite window positioned to blow warm air out, can create a nice “wind tunnel” effect in pulling air through the house. This strategy can be especially effective at night when it is cooler. But then it’s important to shut the windows when you leave for the day in the morning to keep the cooler air in and the warmth of the new day out. Keep blinds shut and curtains drawn, too, as sunlight pouring into the house only creates more heat. And remember that lights left on are not only wasting electricity—they’re creating heat, as well. Ceiling fans also do a nice job of circulating air in the rooms you occupy most, and though they do require some up-front costs

for installation they use only about 1/30th the electricity of a room air conditioner. Beyond moving the air around to keep cool, the website WikiHow.com lists several tips for using water to keep cool sans AC. One tried and true method is to wet your wrists and other pulse points with cold water, and then keep those spots cool by holding an ice cube wrapped in a face cloth against them. The relief is immediate, and this method will cool down the entire body—by as much as three degrees Fahrenheit—for upwards of an hour. Another WikiHow suggestion: Wear a short-sleeved shirt and keep the sleeves wet with cold water (from a squirt bottle, faucet or hose). Keeping the pant legs of long pants wet is also a good way to keep your legs cool. Add in a breeze or a fan, and you can actually get cold. Of course, if you just can’t live without air conditioning, there are greener options out there. For starters, a single window unit that keeps one room cool is far less energy intensive and polluting than central air conditioning that keeps all the rooms in the house (including those you’re not using) cool. Look for new models sporting the federal Energy Star label, which marks units as energy efficient. Another option for those in hot, dry climates is an evaporative cooler, which cools outdoor air through evaporation and blows it inside the house. These units make for a nice alternative to traditional central air conditioning, as they cost about half as much to install and use only one quarter of the energy overall. Want to get down to earth?

Floods could reduce corn supplies, raise food prices BY STEVENSON JACOBS AP Business Writer

NEW YORK Floods that have inundated the Midwest could reduce world corn supplies and drive food prices higher at a time when Americans are already stretching their grocery budgets and people in poor countries have rioted over rising food costs. The U.S. government will report later this month on how many acres of corn were lost to floodwaters. But farmers and agriculture experts already say the toll appears grim, with thousands of acres probably destroyed in the region that grows most of the world’s corn. “It’s not a very good picture at all. We’re looking at possibly a good reduction in acres if a lot of this crop remains underwater,” said Chad Hart, an agriculture economist at Iowa State University. “There’s still hope, but it wanes with each rainstorm.” The disaster has drawn comparisons to the 1993 floods that displaced thousands of people and wiped away vast swaths of the heartland’s agriculture. At the time, about 18 bushels per acre of corn were destroyed, “and everybody is reporting that this year is worse,” said Jason Ward, grains analyst at North Star Commodity in Minneapolis. The most recent floods have sent corn prices soaring past $7 a bushel for the first time, up from about $4 a year ago. Prices shot to a record for a seventh straight day Friday, climbing as high as $7.37 a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade. Floodwaters also hurt soybean crops, sending prices to near all-time highs. Wheat, oats, rice and other food commodities were damaged, too. And corn prices could jump further if floodwaters don’t recede soon, experts say. “We’ve got some major price volatility ahead the weaker this crop gets,” Hart said. In Iowa, the country’s top corn producer, about 9 percent of the anticipated crop either hasn’t been planted because farmers can’t get into their fields, or it needs to be replanted because it’s waterlogged, said Roger Elmore, a corn expert at Iowa State. That’s about 1.2 million acres of corn — almost 1.5 percent of the country’s anticipated harvest — that may produce only a fraction of its potential yield. Rain continued falling in much of Iowa on Friday, and it’s already late to be planting corn. “It’s Noah’s Ark-like conditions out there ... and if you replant now you’re going to get much lower yields,” said Vic Lespinasse of grainanalyst.com in Chicago. Corn prices have shot up more than 80 percent in the last year because of rising energy prices and surging global demand for biofuel and livestock feed. But excessive rainfall in the Midwest has pushed prices up nearly 20 percent in the last month alone. Climbing commodity prices worldwide have hit Americans in their wallets and touched off riots in Haiti, Senegal, Egypt and other poor countries. A weak corn crop could only make things worse. Livestock owners will probably have

to slaughter more cattle, hogs and chickens to offset the rising cost of corn-based animal feed, leading to more expensive beef, pork, chicken, eggs and dairy products. Other livestock owners may switch to cheaper feed made from barely or wheat, adding to already high demand for those grains. “In some cases, hog and cattle farmers are seeing feed prices double,” said Iowa corn farmer Russell Meade, who also sells hay for livestock. “Those guys are going to be put in a financial squeeze.” It’s the same gloomy story for U.S. ethanol producers, who are already being threatened by high corn prices and political pressure to roll back or eliminate federal subsidies. Citigroup analyst David Driscoll this week advised investors to sell shares of publicly traded ethanol producers such as VeraSun Energy Corp. and BioFuel Energy Corp., driving their shares sharply down. Many smaller ethanol producers might have to idle plants until corn prices fall, said Michael Swanson, an economist for Wells Fargo & Company. Ethanol makers are spending almost as much for their raw material as they’re getting for their finished product. “If you’re going to lose more money by actually doing your thing, you’re better off not doing your thing,” Swanson said. “The question is, do you have enough cash to tide you over? A lot of these guys don’t.” Farmers were expected to plant 86 million acres of corn in 2008 — an 8 percent drop from last year. After the flooding began, the Department of Agriculture reduced its projected corn harvest to 11.7 billion bushels, a 10 percent drop from last year. On June 30, the USDA will release an updated estimate on the size of the 2008 corn crop, and many expect it to be significantly smaller than the initial numbers. John Olsson’s farm in central Illinois has been pelted by one steady rain after another. The storms kept him out his fields and washed away fertilizer. “I don’t think we’ve had two five-day periods all spring without some type of rain,” the 46-year-old farmer said from his home near New Berlin, Ill., about 90 miles northeast of St. Louis. “It’s like death by a thousand cuts.” Most of his 650 acres appears to have water damage, meaning it will likely produce less corn. “There’s no way we’re going to have a crop like we’ve had the last few years,” he said. Others are holding out hope, noting that there’s still plenty of corn that hasn’t been flooded. Corn can survive underwater for a few days if it doesn’t get too hot. “We still need to evaluate how many acres are really gone and really not,” said Ken McCauley, a Kansas farmer and chairman of the National Corn Growers Association. “Agriculture is really good at bouncing back, and things aren’t always as bad as they seem."

BROOKLYN, Mich. Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended his 76-race winless string Sunday, coasting to victory at Michigan International Speedway under a caution flag with little but fumes left in his gas tank. NASCAR’s most popular driver gave his new boss, Rick Hendrick, only his second victory of the season as he somehow squeezed enough gas out of his last fillup to go three laps beyond the regulation finish in the Lifelock 400. A spin by Patrick Carpentier on the 203rd lap brought out the final caution and probably saved the victory for Earnhardt, who ran out of gas moments after crossing the finish line behind the pace car. “It is what it is man,” the jubilant Earnhardt said. “We were going to stay out there no matter what.” Asked if he could have made it if the green flag had stayed out, Earnhardt said, “We were going to stumble to the finish and probably not win the race. We weren’t going to finish. The yellow saved us. “They can write what they want, but we won one.” After leaving the team his late father founded to drive for Hendrick’s juggernaut this year, Earnhardt began the new phase of his career with two non-points victories at Daytona in

February. But, despite running well so far this season, that promising start did not lead to any victories in the first 14 Cup races. “We started out and he won the (Budweiser) Clash and the 150 (qualifying race) and we said, `We don’t have to worry about winning a race now.’ Then nobody counted it because it wasn’t a points race,” Hendrick said in Victory Circle. “We’ve been waiting for this. Been so close.” It was a typical Michigan race, coming down to who saved the most gas at the end. As the laps wound down, driver after driver was forced to pit for a splash of gas, but Earnhardt, whose last victory came on May 6, 2006, at Richmond, wasn’t about to stop. Crew chief Tony Eury Jr. kept telling his drive to slow down and try to conserve gas. It was still a big gamble with just over two laps to the scheduled 200-lap finish when former IndyCar champion Sam Hornish Jr. brought out a caution flag with a spin. That extended the race to overtime and, by the time the green flag waved again on lap 202, Earnhardt and his team had no idea if he could make it to the finish. He did, barely. Kasey Kahne, coming off a victory the previous week in Pocono, finished second, followed by Matt Kenseth, Brian Vickers, Tony Stewart and two-time defending Cup champion Jimmie Johnson.

NFL

Johnson finally works out with team THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CINCINNATI Receiver Chad Johnson fully participated in drills for the first time Saturday as the Cincinnati Bengals wrapped up their minicamp. The disgruntled receiver limited himself to a few drills during workouts on Thursday and Friday, complaining through his agent that he has a bad ankle. He looked fine during a workout on Saturday, catching passes from Carson Palmer. He declined to talk to the media again, other than to say “Vote for Obama” as he walked off the field — apparently throwing his support behind Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. “I think it’s been good for him to get back into the flow of things,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “We still have to get some clarity on the ankle and being able to deal with that because it is something we dealt with a year ago.” Johnson, who played for Santa Monica College, has been lobbying for a trade since the Bengals went 7-9 last season and fans grew weary of his complaints that he’s no

longer appreciated in Cincinnati. The Bengals refused to deal him, and Johnson threatened to sit out the season. He didn’t attend any of the team’s voluntary workouts. He faced a fine if he didn’t attend the mandatory, three-day minicamp. Although he showed up for the first day of workouts on Thursday, he barely participated. Agent Drew Rosenhaus said Johnson was bothered by a sore ankle that might need surgery. The Bengals later said Johnson had an ankle problem last season. The team had urged him to get it surgically cleaned out after the final game, but he chose not to do so. Johnson was downcast and had little interaction with teammates during the first day of workouts. He was more upbeat the last two days. Offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski talked to Johnson at the end of Saturday’s workout. “He’s rusty,” Bratkowski said. “I told him he looked rusty. Nobody likes to hear that. He’s going against guys who have been out here for 14, 16 (voluntary) practices, you know. You’re going to look that way.”

Return calls, Virgo ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

★★★★ A friend could let you down; a special partner will not. Trust this person to do his or her very best. Develop a live-and-let-live outlook. Tonight: Do we need to spell it out?

★★★ You could be inclined to excess. Can you really afford or handle this type of indulgence? Be aware of the ramifications before skipping off thoughtlessly to enjoy. Ultimately, you will be freer and happier. Tonight: Treat time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ Others want to claim their power. They want you to know that they are in control of everything. You know better. You can control only yourself. Let them discover the truth through experience. Enjoy the people you are with. Tonight: Socialize and play away.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Easy does it with a tense, tiring or difficult situation or person. You cannot always make someone happy. Focus on accomplishment and doing the best you can. Tonight: Bathingsuit time is here. Take a walk after dinner.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★★★ You have a look of mischief in your eyes. You might not know it, but you see it in others' reactions. Use these sparks to make situations easier and to turn a loss into a win. Tonight: Add that extra mirth into interactions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ You might be more of a tortoise than a hare right now. It's Monday, and last we checked, you are not perfect! Take some extra time off if possible. Try to work from home. Work with energy or moods rather than fight them. Tonight: Call it an early night.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Sometimes you might feel uncomfortable or unwilling to express yourself. Do. Investigate and find out what is happening. If you have an important idea, confirm that you and others are on the same page. Give up worry, just for a day! You might like it. Tonight: Return calls first.

Happy birthday

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Recognize your limits. A superior might be cutting off some of your leverage. Rome wasn't built in a day; neither is your professional status. Tonight: A must appearance. Is a partner sassy?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ It not only takes skill, it might take determination to detach. You are a very emotional sign. Relax and understand what is happening here. A partner is out of kilter or a little off. Trust. Tonight: Let your mind wander.

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

Don't allow someone to rain on your parade. Negativity could rear its ugly head this year, and you might not realize it. A partner often gives strong feedback, professional or personal. A trip, a potential educational experience or another very unique experience could dot your life anywhere from winter on. If you are single, easily someone could become more than a friend! If you are attached, the two of you will bond more closely if you get past a critical quality. SAGITTARIUS challenges you.

By John Forgetta & L.A. Rose

Š 2008 Janric Enterprises Dist. by Creators Syndicate Inc.

GETTING STARTED 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.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY

Strange Brew

By John Deering

CHUCK

SHEPARD

â–  There was yet another fight in Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre this past Easter (celebrated in mid-April by Orthodox Christians). This time, Armenians (one of the six Christian branches that share management of the holy site) believed that a Greek Orthodox priest had encroached on their part of the church and tried to eject him, leading to a brawl in which some in attendance used Palm Sunday fronds as weapons. It usually falls on Jerusalem's Muslim police officers to restore order. â–  For Easter every year in Vrondados on the Greek island of Chios, villagers carry on a 19thcentury tradition in which parishioners of two churches attack the other's building with homemade rockets during midnight Mass. Villagers spend the days before Easter boarding up windows in order to minimize damage, and the goal is to be first to hit the other church's bell tower.

TODAY IN HISTORY Baseball's first ``Ladies' Day'' took place as the New York Gothams offered women free admission to a game against the Cleveland Spiders. (New York won, 5-2.) The government signed a treaty of annexation with Hawaii. Ford Motor Co. was incorporated. President Hoover and Vice President Charles Curtis were renominated at the Republican national convention in Chicago. The National Industrial Recovery Act became law. (It was later struck down by the Supreme Court.) The Supreme Court, in Kent v. Dulles, ruled that artist Rockwell Kent could not be denied a passport because of his communist affiliations. The world's first female space traveler, Valentina Tereshkova, was launched into orbit by the Soviet Union aboard Vostok 6. Riots broke out in the black South African township of Soweto.
