Library evacuated after gas scare
Mary Katherine Murphy
Staff reporter
The Scotland Memorial Library was evacuated
this morning after someone poured gasoline into
a toilet.
The building was evacuated after several library
visitors complained of the smell of gas.
About two dozen library staff members and
visitors stood outside the Church Street library
as emergency personnel worked to determine and
eradicate the source of the smell.
“We had a patron complain and say that she
smelled gas in the ladies’ restroom, and then
another patron came in and said he smelled fuel
oil or gas,” said library technician Belinda Norton.
“We took the precaution and called the fire department.”
Among the library patrons interrupted by the
incident were AARP Tax Aide volunteers, on hand
to assist local residents with filing their taxes.
The evacuation lasted about an hour while members of the Laurinburg Fire Department investigated the situation.
“What they told us was that someone had
poured gas into the commode in the ladies’ restroom and they had to detox it and clean the fumes
out,” said Norton.
Although there is no way of knowing who
poured the gas into the toilet, Norton said, they
most likely did so after the library opened on
Friday morning. Library officials do not anticipate
residual problems from the incident.
“They seemed to think that they had defused
the situation and everything was going to be fine,”
said Norton. “We really hated to inconvenience

Man tries to lure toddler from family home
Joy Hunt
Staff reporter
Authorities are looking for a man they
believe tried to lure a toddler from her
yard in Laurel Hill.
The three-year-old was playing in her
yard when her nine-year-old sibling saw
a man gesturing toward her to go toward
him, according Capt. Dan Newton of
the Scotland County Sheriff’s office.
The older sibling alerted the mother,
but the man was gone by the time the
mother arrived, investigators said.
The incident occurred Tuesday at
about 5 p.m. in a yard off Ida Chapel
Road.
Deputies describe the man as a black
male in his late teens or early 20s, with
a medium build and weighing about 200
pounds. He was described as wearing a
white baseball cap with black lettering
that had a logo depicting the University
of North Carlina at Pembroke.
Witnesses said that the man had been
seen in the area, but the law enforcement had not bee notified earlier.
Newton said investigators have questioned businesses in Laurel Hill and
canvassed the areas in search of information that would help.
Newton said leads to Pembroke
“proved to be a dead end.”
“We are asking that anyone who may
know anything about the suspect to call
the sheriff’s department at 276-3385.”

Wagram reviews grant options
Joy Hunt
Staff reporter
If there is money available
to improve housing or help the
elderly, Wagram officials would
like for their town to be eligible.
The Wagram Town Board
heard a report at its board meeting on Thursday night about
funding available for community development. The state is
expected to announce its grant
recipients in July.
Floyd Adams, a development
specialist, told the Wagram
board that a Community
Development Block Grant,
(CDBG) allows towns and
cities to apply for funds earmarked for areas such as home
repair for poor residents.
This category of grants also
allows for the construction or
enhancement of public facilities
projects such as parks, playgrounds, recreation centers,
and centers for seniors. The
program provides grants of up
to $500,00.
Adams said the primary
purpose of the program is to
The Wagram Town Board heard a report at its board meeting on Thursday night about funding available for community
development, including home repair for poor residents and enhancement of public facilities.
provide grants to local governments to develop viable communities by providing decent
housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities, principal-
ly for people of low and moderate-income. The funds could
also assist with infrastructure
needs such as sewer, water and
paving streets.
Adams added that “the com-
missioners have a lot to think
about.”
Since all grants will require
several public hearings before
a town or county can submit
their applications, commission-
ers will hold their first public
hearing on March 1, with a
subsequent public hearing on
April 5.
After that time the board will
be able to submit an application
to the state.
“The funds are extremely
competitive as the state will
only be supporting 13-15 projects statewide,” Adams said
Wagram officials said they
were especially interested in
some form of community development for the senior.
“What happens is that our
senior citizens end up leaving
our community to go to other
areas that can provide for their
needs,” Mayor Milton Farmer
said. “If we could provide the
services that they need so that
they could remain in their community, then I think that is
something we would want to
explore.”
Farmer also said that the
community should be involved
in the grant process and suggested that the public be surveyed about what projects were
needed.

matter how bad a situation was, Joseph could
make it not as bad and
turn it into a joke.”
Nichols also tried to
shift the burdens and
troubles of others onto
his own shoulders.
“I found out from my
daughter, Madison, that
Joseph was one of the
upper class students that
would make regular visits
to the primary school students,” said Gary Dwyer,
headmaster at Marlboro
Academy. “He would talk
with them, help them
in the classroom with a
variety of projects, and
make them feel loved
and important members
of the school community.
She has never forgotten
the attention that Joseph
Nichols gave to her and
her classmates.”
He was also a familiar
face in the Nic’s Pic Kwik
stores owned by his parents, Dean and Candy
Nichols.
“Even though he didn’t
really have to, he’d help
out and sweep and stock
– all the stuff you didn’t
really expect the owner’s
son to be doing,” Smith
said.
Nichols’ sense of
humor was his trademark
to those who knew him
in all aspects of his life.
“Joseph was a really
good student that always
made the classroom an
easier place to be,” said
Gary Shapiro, a Marlboro
Academy history teacher. “He had a wonderful
sense of self that enabled
him to navigate most
any situation - a sense
of humor coupled with
a dedication to purpose
that could even make an
economics class entertaining.”
“Joseph had these dimples – they would just
kind of light up,” said
Smith. “That’s what he
was known for.”
That sense of humor
made Nichols an instant
friend to those he met.
“Joseph had a beautiful smile, a twinkle
in his eye, and loved
everyone,” said Stacey
Newton, teacher and college placement counselor
at Marlboro Academy.
“He came to us in the
10th grade, into a class
that had been together
for many years, and he
immediately became one
of them.”
“Joe was a great guy
– extremely personable,”
said Bruner. “He was just
a really, really good soul
with a smiling face. So
it’s going to be hard for
him not to be around
anymore.”
A memorial service
for Nichols will be held
today at Laurinburg
Presbyterian Church at
11 a.m., after which his
family will receive visitors and friends.
“I know a lot of people
will miss him – he meant
a lot to many people,”
Smith said.
“The last time I saw
him was when he had
stopped by the Academy
for a visit,” said Denise
Jones, Nichols’ Spanish
teacher at Marlboro
Academy. “He gave me
a big bear hug. And I
remember
thinking,
‘It’s so nice when they
come back to see us.’ He
looked so happy and full
of life. That’s how I am
going to remember him,
with that big smile on
his face.”

Woman charged in terror plot held without bond
WILMINGTON, N.C.
(AP) — A federal judge
in North Carolina ruled
Friday that a Raleigh
school
administrator
accused of paying a hit
man to behead three
witnesses in a terrorism
case should be held without bond until her trial.
Nevine Aly Elshiekh
made her first court
appearance Friday after
being arrested last
month after FBI agents
tracked her to a meeting with a government
informant. Agents say
the 46-year-old educator
provided the names of
those to be killed and
a $750 down payment
toward the first hit.
U.S. Magistrate Judge
Robert B. Jones Jr. ruled
that there was enough
evidence for her to stand
trial and ordered her
held without bail.
Prosecutors say the
plot was masterminded
by Hysen Sherifi, sen-
tenced last month to 45
years for a conspiracy to
attack the Marine base at
Quantico, Va.
Also
arrested
in
the beheading plot is
Shkumbin Sherifi, the
21-year-old brother of
the terror defendant. He
was ordered held without bail following a similar hearing last week.
They were taken into
custody after a sting
operation where prosecutors said the pair
paid an FBI informant
a total of $5,000. That
informant, posing as the
hit man's representative,
later provided Shkumbin
Sherifi a fake photo of
what appeared to be the
intended victim's severed head.
The cash came from
the sale of gold jewelry
and other items Elshiekh
gave to Shkumbin Sherifi
to pawn, according to
the FBI.
Elshiekh's
lawyer,
Charles Swift, said the
public should keep an
open mind about his client until the full facts
are known. She was
manipulated by an "evil
man," he said, referring
to Hysen Sherifi.
"She had no role in
picking who would be
attacked," Swift said of
the government's evidence. "Her role was to
take money and messages to people."
Prosecutors said Friday
that Elshiekh went to the
trial last year and wrote
letters to Hysen Sherifi
and his codefendants,
who were also convicted.
He replied and asked
for her phone number
so he could call her. He
also mailed her bracelets
he made while in jail,
according to the FBI.
Elshiekh
divorced
in 2010. Hysen Sherifi
is married to a woman
who lives in his native
Kosovo.
Leaders slam ACLU on complaint
RALEIGH (AP) — Republican leaders
in the state House of Representatives said
Friday they're reviewing a complaint by a
civil liberties group about prayers in the
General Assembly, but that they believe
the group is out of touch with the concerns of North Carolina residents.
House Speaker Thom Tillis and
Majority Leader Paul Stam both said
they'll consider the concerns raised in the
letter sent Thursday by the state chapter
of the American Civil Liberties Union,
but neither lawmaker thinks there's much
to the group's contention that prayers at
sessions of the legislature violate the First
Amendment.
"The ACLU has an affinity for pushing a
radical, far-left agenda that is out of touch
with most North Carolinians," Tillis said
in a statement. "The same Constitution
that prohibits government-sponsored religion also protects the right of individuals
to exercise their faith as they so choose."
The group's letter to Attorney General
Roy Cooper cited the decision last month
by the U.S. Supreme Court not to hear
an appeal of a case in which a lower
federal court ruled that prayers endorsing a specific religion can't be offered at
meetings of the Forsyth County Board of
Commissioners.
Such sectarian prayers, almost always
Christian, are common during sessions
of both the House and Senate, according
to complaints received by the ACLU. The
Senate has a chaplain that offers invocations, while Tillis has invited individual
lawmakers to lead prayers before sessions.
Since
her
arrest,
Elshiekh has been on
leave from her job as the
director of exceptional
children at Sterling
Montessori Academy, a
state-supported charter
school in Morrisville.
Elshiekh was born in
the United States. Her
father, a native of Egypt,
is retired as a professor
at N.C. State University.
In court Friday, Aly
Elshiekh said he chose
to immigrate to the
United States more than
40 years ago because he
believes in the American
Dream and democracy.
"I trust the justice system of this country," the
father said. "She will be
treated fairly."

School rivals
The News & Observer
It’s not necessary to consider the diatribes against “government-run” schools
— diatribes popular on the far right — to
sense a fair amount of skepticism toward
traditional public education among conservatives. The Republicans who took control
of the General Assembly after the 2010
elections reflected that skepticism when
they made good on a campaign pledge
to lift North Carolina’s “cap” on charter
schools.
The cap, in the spirit of quality control,
had put a limit of 100 on the charters,
which receive public funding but operate
outside the regular education bureaucracy.
Now the State Board of Education, which
grants the charters, is receiving applications from groups that want to take advantage of the loosened rule.
Two Triangle-area applications are proving controversial. In Chapel Hill, the idea
is to create a charter school that would
address what its backers say is a need
to focus more intensively on closing the
“achievement gap” between white and
minority students. The school would be
owned and operated by a Michigan-based
for-profit company. The school system and
the NAACP object, on grounds that the gap
already is narrowing and that removing a
substantial number of minority students
from the regular schools would undermine
diversity.
A Durham proposal draws opposition
from the school board there for different
reasons. Research Triangle High School,
as envisioned, would have a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math)
orientation. The expectation is that many
of its students’ parents would work in and
around RTP, where the workforce is largely
professional, well-paid and white.
In other words, the charter could become
a relatively elite quasi-academy, financed
by the taxpayers, while the traditional
Durham schools had to say goodbye to
some of their most advantaged students.
Financially, Durham’s traditional schools
would take a hit because funding would
follow the students to the charter — as it
already does for eight other charters in the
system. Charters’ 8.7 percent market share
in Durham happens to be the highest in
the state.
The original rationale for charters was
that they could become test beds for innovation in classroom methods, teacher evaluation, facilities and other areas where
regular schools are subject to webs of rules
and regulations. That remains a worthwhile concept.
But somewhere along the way, egged on
by those who think regular public schools
almost by definition can’t do anything
right, supporters of charters started to see
them more as rivals than as places where
new ideas could be tried out to all schools’
potential benefit.
It’s understandable why, in that climate,
school boards that take seriously their
responsibility to serve every student would
balk at seeing scarce resources diverted to
charters growing at the expense of regular
schools.
Adding insult to injury in Durham is
that Research Triangle High School would
compete with Southern High, where a
STEM focus also is being developed in an
effort to shore up the school’s academic
profile. “We’ll be in a tug of war with them
for students, teachers, partnerships out
in the park, internship opportunities for
students,” said Heidi Carter, school board
vice chairwoman.
A charter advisory panel has forwarded
both the Chapel Hill and Durham proposals to the state board with positive recommendations. But the board ought to be
wary of overruling the judgment of locally
elected officials as to the downside of letting these charters come on line. The interests of some students and families might be
advanced, but it is the overall public interest that must be allowed to carry the day.

The flight of longtime Democratic political figures from public service is turning
into a bit of a stampede.
Gov. Beverly Perdue’s announcement
that she will not seek re—election has
been followed by echoes of many viable
candidates taking their hats out of the
ring. U.S. Rep Brad Miller announced last
week he would not be seeking re—election (redistricting would have pitted him
against fellow longtime Democratic Rep.
David Price).
Then Thursday, three prominent
Democrats announced that they would
not be putting their names on the next
ballot.
Erskine Bowles said that he will not
enter the gubernatorial race.
U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler, from the western end of the state, announced he will not
seek re—election.
And,Joe Hackney, the N.C. House
minority leader announced that this would
be his last term.
A couple of the candidates have cited a
desire to spend more time with family and
on things they enjoy doing. The redistricting issues also loom large, making some
districts more GOP—friendly and, as in

the case of Miller and Price, forcing a race
between longtime colleagues.
So what’s driving the exodus? It could
be a fear that the fall of this year will not be
a happy one for the Democratic Party. On
the state level, it’s been tough not being
the party in charge, and the partisanship
and treatment of the minority party in
the state legislature has been bitter. But in
fairness, what has been dished out should
look familiar because the Republicans
often faced similar treatment at the hands
of Democratic leadership under Jim Black
and Mark Basnight.
And, frankly, from an outside view, it’s
hard to see where the joy and gratification would come in the job these days for
people truly devoted to public service.
There’s a nastiness in the discourse, and it
seems cross—aisle cooperation is becoming virtually impossible to find.
Our best hope is that the new crop of
leaders who will come in to fill vacancies will be able to work better together,
respecting differences while holding true
to representing their constituents’ views.
That would be our hope, but we suspect
the reality will, unfortunately, look like
more of the same.

Second teacher arrested on sex claim
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A
second teacher at an inner-city
elementary school where a teacher is accused of committing lewd
acts on 23 children was arrested
Friday on suspicion of fondling
two girls in his classroom.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's
Capt. Mike Parker said Martin
B. Springer, 49, of Alhambra was
arrested four days after allegations surfaced against the first
teacher, but there was no known
connection between the two
cases. Springer was being held
on $2 million bail.
The expanding case has
shocked the nation and thrown a
chill into its second-largest school
district, with 650,000 students
across hundreds of campuses.
Parker said the victims in the
second case were about 7 and 8
years old and were fondled once
each in a classroom at Miramonte
Elementary School during the
past three years.
Detectives
interviewed
Springer and the alleged victims
on Thursday and had him under
surveillance. He was arrested
Friday as he exited a school
district building in South Los
Angeles, Parker said.
Detectives anticipate that more
victims might come forward, he
said.
A phone message left at
Springer's home was not immediately returned.
Los Angeles Unified School
District Superintendent John
Deasy said the district plans to
fire Springer next week.
"We are prepared to fire him
next week and we'll do that at
the next board meeting for inappropriate conduct and inappropriately touching students," the
superintendent told KTTV.
In a related development, a
lawyer filed a claim against the
district stating that he intended to file a lawsuit alleging an
unidentified girl ate a sugar
cookie laced with the semen of
the first teacher arrested, Mark
Berndt.
Earlier this week, Berndt, who
worked at the school for 32 years,
was charged with committing
lewd acts on 23 children, ages 6
to 10, between 2005 and 2010.
He remains jailed on $23 million
bail and could face life in prison if
convicted.
Lawyer Raymond Boucher,
whose Beverly Hills firm specializes in sexual abuse lawsuits
against school districts, religious
institutions and hospitals, said
the legal claim of behalf of "Jane
Doe 1" alleges the district did not
take adequate steps to prevent
Berndt from repeatedly abusing
children after officials received
complaints about him.
After news broke early Friday
about Springer being removed
from the classroom, several parents took their children out of
the school.
Ida Santana said her sister
called her and told her to pick up
her nephew.
"It's hard to leave our kids
here," Santana said. "We can't
trust the teachers no more. Now
there's another teacher."
Santana said the family is
unsure where the boy will be
going to school from now on.
The development involving
the second teacher was made
public a day after authorities
acknowledged that 18 years ago,
a 10-year-old girl claimed Berndt
tried to fondle her.
Prosecutors declined to file to
charges against Berndt in the
1993 report, saying they didn't
have enough evidence. Berndt,
who denied the allegation at the
time, was never arrested.
The details of that case and
other claims by two former students about strange behavior by
Berndt surfaced just three days
after his arrest.
The allegations raised further
questions about why he wasn't
disciplined by school officials,
who have been lambasted by
some parents for waiting a year
to reveal that Berndt was suspected of blindfolding children
and feeding them his own semen
in his classroom in what children
were allegedly told was a tasting
game.
School officials and investigators said proper procedures were
followed to investigate and build
a case against the teacher.
The investigation of Berndt
began in the fall of 2010 when
a film processor became suspicious about the photographs and
turned them over to investigators
who notified the school district.
Law agencies’ sites under attack
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Saboteurs
stole passwords and sensitive information
on tipsters while hacking into the websites
of several law enforcement agencies worldwide in attacks attributed to the collective
known as Anonymous.
Breaches were reported this week in
Boston, Syracuse, N.Y., Salt Lake City and
Greece.
Hackers gained access to the Salt Lake
City Police Department website that gathers citizen complaints about drug and
other crimes, including phone numbers,
addresses and other personal data of informants, police said.
The website remained down Friday as
police worked to make it more secure.
Anonymous is a collection of Internet
enthusiasts, pranksters and activists whose
targets have included financial institutions
such as Visa and MasterCard, the Church
of Scientology and law enforcement agen-
Hackers breached websites in US, Greece
cies.
Following a spate of arrests across
the world, the group and its various offshoots have focused their attention on law
enforcement agencies in general and the
FBI in particular.
The group also claimed responsibility for
hacking the website of a Virginia law firm
that represented a U.S. Marine involved in
the deaths of civilians in Iraq in 2005.
Anonymous also published a recording on the Internet Friday of a phone
call between the FBI and Scotland Yard,
gloating in a Twitter message that "the
FBI might be curious how we're able to
continuously read their internal comms for
some time now."
FBI spokeswoman Jenny Shearer said
in an email to The Associated Press the
agency was aware of the incidents, and an
investigation was ongoing.
In Greece, the Justice Ministry took
down its site Friday after a video by activists claiming to be Greek and Cypriot
members of Anonymous was displayed for
at least two hours.
In Boston, a message posted on the
police website before it was taken down
Friday said, "Anonymous hacks Boston
Police website in retaliation for police
brutality at OWS," an apparent reference
to the Occupy Wall Street movement. The
message also promised "there is plenty
more mayhem to deliver."
A police spokesman would not confirm
Anonymous was responsible.
Another message on the department's
website said a hack several months ago
unearthed hundreds of passwords that
were released in retaliation for what was
called brutality against Occupy Boston.
In October, Boston police acknowledged
that various websites used by members
of the police department — including the
website belonging to the police patrolmen's association — had been hacked and
possibly compromised. The department
said it asked all police personnel to change
their passwords on its network.
The Occupy movement in Boston set up
camp in the city's financial district for two
months this fall. The first hack came about
10 days after Boston police arrested 141
Occupy demonstrators on Oct. 11.
Police dismantled the camp Dec. 10, citing public health and safety concerns.
"So you get your kicks beating protesters? That's OK; we get kicks defacing ...
your websites — again," the message on
the department's website said Friday.
Dallas teen maintains alias in jail cells
DALLAS (AP) — A
Dallas teenager who
was deported to South
America under a false
name never expressed
concern during jailhouse
phone calls that she was
being misidentified as an
illegal immigrant from
Colombia.
The more than two
dozen recorded telephone

Turner expected to be
deported to Colombia yet
did not complain of having no ties to the country.
Instead, during several
conversations she had
with two men she identified herself as Tika Lanay
Cortez and discussed
renewing her green card
and having her passport
and Colombian identification card sent to authorities.
Yet, Turner claimed in
a recent TV interview
that she repeatedly tried
to convince authorities
she had lied when she
initially identified herself to Houston police
as Cortez, a 21-year-old
Colombian national, after
being arrested for shoplifting.
"At a certain point, I
just gave up because I
said it multiple times:
'I'm Jakadrien Turner,
I'm 15 years old, and why
am I here?'" Turner, who
was returned to Texas
last month, told Dallas
television station WFAA,
in an interview that aired
Wednesday night.
The Associated Press
reviewed recordings of
25 telephone calls Turner
made while in custody
in Houston in April and
May. A law enforcement
official who has listened
to most of the calls and
has been briefed on the
case confirmed the caller
is Turner.
The official spoke on
the condition of anonymity because the official is
not authorized to publicly discuss details of the
case.
During several of the
phone calls, which ranged
from a couple minutes to
about 45 minutes, Turner
frequently discusses having her passport and
other documents sent so
she could be released.
The teen, who said she
ran away from home in
November 2010 because
her parents were strict,

fell in with a trafficker
who claimed to love her
but threatened to kill her
and hurt her family if she
tried to leave.

Syrain activists: 200 dead in attacks
BEIRUT (AP) — In a barrage
of shelling, Syrian forces killed
200 people and wounded hundreds early Saturday in Homs
in an offensive that appears to
be the bloodiest episode in the
nearly 11-month-old uprising,
activists said.
The offensive was reported
in Homs, which has been one
of the main flashpoints of opposition to the regime during
the uprising against President
Bashar Assad.
Two main opposition groups,
the
British-based
Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights
and the Local Coordination
Committees, said the death
toll was more than 200 people.
More than half of the killings
— about 140 — were reported
in the Khaldiyeh neighborhood.
"This is the worst attack of
Government opens fire on Homs protest
the uprising, since the uprising began in March until now,"
said Rami Abdul-Rahman, the
head of the Observatory, which
tracks violence through contacts on the ground.
The reports could not be
independently confirmed.
It was not immediately clear
what precipitated the attack,
but there have been reports
that army defectors set up
checkpoints in the area and
were trying to consolidate control.
Assad is trying to crush the
revolt with a sweeping crackdown that has so far claimed
thousands of lives, but neither
the government nor the pro-
testers are backing down and
clashes between the military
and an increasingly bold and
armed opposition has meant
many parts of the country have
seen relentless violence.
The U.N. Security Council
meeting later Saturday was
to take up a much-negotiated
resolution on Syria. A diplomat
for a Western nation that sits
on the council said the meeting
would happen Saturday morning. The diplomat spoke Friday
on condition of anonymity
because he was not authorized
to be quoted by the press.
The move toward a vote came
after Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton spoke by tele-
phone with Russian Foreign
Minister Sergey Lavrov in an
effort to overcome Russian
opposition to any statement
that explicitly calls for regime
change or a military intervention in Syria.
The U.S. and its partners
have ruled out military action
but want the global body to
endorse an Arab League plan
that calls on Assad to hand
power over to Syria's vice president.
Clinton called Lavrov while
flying Friday to Munich for
a security conference that
both are attending, State
Department spokesman Mark
Toner said.
He said Clinton and Lavrov
agreed to have American and
Russian diplomats continue
work on a Syria resolution and
were planning to meet for more
talks in the German city over
the weekend.
Russia's deputy foreign minister, Gennady Gatilov, said
Friday that Moscow could not
support the resolution in its
current form. But he expressed
optimism that an agreement
could be reached, according to
state news agency RIA Novosti.
Assad's regime has been
intensifying an assault against
army defectors and protesters.
The U.N. said weeks ago that
more than 5,400 people have
been killed in violence since
March. Hundreds more have
been killed since that tally was
announced.

deaths bring new
cycle of violence
CAIRO
(AP)
—
Protesters filled the
streets and clashed for a
second day Friday with
police who fired tear gas
and birdshot in Cairo,
as a deadly soccer riot
focused rising public
anger over lawlessness
and collapsing security a
year after Egypt's uprising.
Six people have been
killed and more than
1,500 injured in the latest bloodshed that followed a violent melee
and stampede after a soccer game Wednesday in
the Mediterranean city of
Port Said in which 74
people died.
Egyptians streamed
out of Friday prayers in
Cairo, Alexandria, Suez
and several Nile Delta
cities, criticizing police
and calling on the military rulers led by Field
Marshal Hussein Tantawi
to step down.
On Cairo's Tahrir
Square — the heart of
the uprising that ousted
President Hosni Mubarak
a year ago — protesters
raised banners and pictures of those killed in
Port Said and chanted,
"The people want to execute the marshal."
The police force, which
for decades was associated with torture and corruption in the Mubarak
regime, is now being criticized in the soccer stadium deaths — whether
from a lack of control
or, as some alleged, on
purpose.
For many Egyptians,
the security vacuum is
not just a sign of incompetence but part of the
larger overall failure by
the military council to
steer the country through
its turbulent transitional
period. They also see
selectivity in policing the
streets.
Leading
democracy
advocate
Mohamed
ElBaradei said delays
in reforming the security apparatus is itself "a
crime against the nation,"
adding that the current
violence is the "price we
pay for stumbling in the
transitional period."
The clashes in Cairo
began Thursday as the
bodies of the dead soccer fans were returned to
the capital for burial, and
the violence escalated.
Protesters converged on
the headquarters of the
Interior Ministry, which
oversees police, throwing
stones.
Police responded with
tear gas and birdshot,
and protesters donned
helmets and gas masks to
battle their way through
streets thick with smoke
from tear gas and burning tires.
"I came because I'm
trying to do anything to
feel that I took part in
getting people's rights
and voicing all that's
inside me," said 20-yearold Ahmed Emad, whose
two friends were killed
in Port Said. "If I sit at
home, I will explode after
all I've seen."
The death toll from
Friday's violence rose to
six. That figure included a security officer in
Cairo, according to the
official MENA news
agency.
One protester in Cairo
was killed after being
hit by birdshot at close
range, a volunteer doctor
said on condition of anonymity because he feared
reprisal.
Four protesters died in
Suez after police opened
fire on a crowd of about
3,000 demonstrators in
front of police headquarters, according to local
health officials. A third
protester in Suez was in
critical condition with a
wound to the neck.
The Port Said soccer
riot began when fans of
the home team, Al-Masry,
stormed the field after
their
club
defeated
Al-Ahly, one of Cairo's
top teams. Police in black
uniforms and riot gear
were seen in television
video broadcast nationwide standing by and
largely doing nothing
amid the chaos.
The bloodshed — the
worst in the soccer world
in 15 years — enraged
protesters who were
already frustrated with
the slow pace of reform
by the military leaders.

TRIPOLI, Lebanon (AP) — Abu
Hamza was in a crowd of thousands
in the Syrian border town of Qusair,
shouting for President Bashar Assad to
leave power, when a sniper's bullet tore
through his leg and shattered the bone
into 18 pieces.
Another bullet pierced his back as
he tried to crawl away. A friend rushed
into the street to try to drag him away
but was also hit in the shoulder. Abu
Hamza lay in the street for two hours
until it was dark. Finally a man ran out,
pulled him to a safer area, then himself
fell dead, shot in the head.
Friends smuggled Abu Hamza immediately across the border into Lebanon.
Now nearly two months later he is
recuperating in a clinic set up by Syrian
exiles in the northern Lebanese city of
Tripoli.
The 25-year-old remains defiant. The
green-white-and-red anti-regime flag is
pinned to the wall above his bed. "I plan
to return to Syria to continue the struggle that will end with the revolution's
victory or my martyrdom," he said.
His injuries, however, will mean that
he will likely have a limp for life, doctors tell him. He and others at the
clinic spoke to The Associated Press on
condition their full names not be used,
fearing retaliation.
Well over 5,000 people have been
killed in the Syrian crackdown on protesters demanding Assad's ouster since
the uprising began in March. But thousands more have suffered catastrophic
wounds that will become a painful legacy of the country's extraordinary cries
for change.
Their wounds track the changing
nature of the conflict. At first, doctors
saw mainly gunshot wounds, a reflection of the main type of violence — government forces firing on protesters. But
in recent months, more people torn by
shrapnel from mortar shells are brought
to the hospital.
That's a sign of how the conflict has
become more militarized as frustrated
regime opponents and army defectors
have armed themselves and fought back
against regime forces.

Changes in the works at Kansas Speedway
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — There
are more changes in the works at Kansas
Speedway.
Officials received the final layout from
their design team this week for a proposed road course through the infield, and
construction is scheduled to begin after
the April race.
Track president Pat Warren also said
Friday he hopes one of the two Sprint
Cup races at Kansas Speedway will be
run at night in 2013. The track installed
lights last year and drew about 25,000
fans last fall for an ARCA race run under
the lights.
"I can tell you opportunities like this
don't come along very often, but when
they do you take advantage of them,"
Warren said. "We added lights to the
track, last year we replaced 20,000 seats.
We've done a number of things to the
speedway itself."
Warren spoke to The Associated Press
during the opening of the Hollywood
Casino at Kansas Speedway, which was
built overlooking Turn 2. The $411 million
casino represents a joint venture between
track owner International Speedway
Corp. and Penn National Gaming.
The infield road course will be visible
from a patio connected to the casino.
"We always talk about Kansas Speedway
being a unique destination," Warren said.
"We are truly unique now in a sense of
being a destination casino, and a hotel in
the not-too-distant future."
The road course, which will be built in
conjunction with a reconfiguration and
repaving of the original 1½-mile tri-oval,
begins after the front stretch. Drivers will
make a hard left and meander down the
backstretch before a hairpin turn brings
them back to the main speedway.
There are also configurations that allow
for the course to be run as a mile-long
road course contained entirely in the
infield, and part of it as a smaller go-kart
track.
The work will be finished before the
October race weekend, though there
won't be competitive racing on the road
course until next year, when a Grand-Am
stop is planned for Kansas Speedway.
"We haven't announced the date yet
and I'm sure we will in the near future,
but that'll be the first Grand-Am race here
and give us road racing, and that will even
diversify the fan base even more than it
already is," said Lesa France Kennedy, the
chief executive of ISC.
The repaving project has generated
mixed reactions.
Some drivers argued last fall that the
new surface would hurt the quality of
racing at the track, while others pointed
to cracks and potholes as potential safety
issues. Some also are upset that 15-degree

Belichick shows relaxed side
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — He fishes, goes to wine festivals, even kisses
his girlfriend in full view at a Boston
Celtics game.
He's Bill Belichick.
Really.
The New England Patriots coach,
whose dour demeanor matches his
gray hoodie and whose quotes make
clichés seem original, actually has a
colorful side rarely seen by football
junkies. For some reason — and
Belichick has a reason for everything — he's loosened up this Super
Bowl week with a season's worth of
smiles, jokes and fashionable attire.
"He's a good dude," tight end
Aaron Hernandez said. "You just
have to catch him on the right day."
There have been several of those
this week, as the Pats prepare to play
the New York Giants in Sunday's
NFL title game, enough to show that
Belichick is more than a one-dimensional gridiron "genius" but perhaps
not enough to prove his public makeover will last until next season.
Matt Light, who has played left
tackle for the Patriots since 2001,
has watched Belichick coach about
1,000 practices. He's heard him rip
players of all stature — from stars
to practice squadders. And he's seen
him offer encouragement with a pat
on the back.
Light also noticed that Belichick

New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick is showing a much has relaxed with age; he turns 60
in April, and has spent 37 of those

years in various capacities on NFL
coaching staffs.
"I think he's had a little more fun
with some of the things that surround the game of football," Light
said. "Whether it's just his old age
softening him a little bit, he seems to
be having a little bit more fun with it.
"But I think at the heart of everything he does, he just wants to win
football games. Football is football
and everything else is kind of secondary to that. His main focus is the
game. I'm not sure you need to have
a whole lot of humor when you're
that focused on what you do, but it's
kind of nice to see it every now and
then."
For six straight days during Super
Bowl week, Belichick regaled reporters with humor and historical reminiscences, careful all the while not to
reveal any game plans or speak of the
Giants with anything but admiration.
"Trust me, at times Bill can be
difficult to deal with," nose tackle
Vince Wilfork said, "but I think he
sees a difference in this team. I think
he knows that he has a pretty tough
football team, a smart football team
and a team that's never going to let
him down. We have one more game
to go. Hopefully, we won't let him
down."
However it turns out, it will mark
the start of Belichick's offseason.
At some point, he's likely to return

happening in the Big Ten
Conference. But I see that happening around the country,
when somebody de-commits
on the day of signing.
"That's when you have to
wonder about the tactics."
But on Friday, Michigan
State issued a statement from
Dantonio in which he said
he wanted to "correct some
inaccurate news accounts that
have appeared over the last
two days."
"The timing of my comments was a reflection of an
occurring matter on Signing
Day and had nothing to do
with Urban Meyer and Ohio
State," the statement said.
"My comments regarding
'unethical' behavior were general in nature, according to my
current coaching philosophy,
and not directed toward any
particular institution."
The Buckeyes signed defensive end Se'Von Pittman from
Canton, Ohio, on Wednesday.
He had verbally committed to
Michigan State.
Spartans defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi, also a
former Tressel assistant, said
at a speaking engagement
in Canton, Ohio, that there
used to be an unwritten rule
between coaches in the conference.
"I'm not accusing anyone
specifically," Narduzzi said.
"All I'm saying was that there
was time when there was an

Ohio State is banned from
going to a bowl game after the
2012 season as part of NCAA
sanctions accrued under
Tressel.
The Buckeyes are also facing
recruiting limitations (three
fewer scholarships each of the
next three years) among other
penalties, including vacating
the 2010 season and serving
three years of NCAA probation.
Ohio State athletic director
Gene Smith also jumped to the
defense of Meyer on Friday.
"I am disappointed that negative references have been made
about our football coaches, and
particularly head coach Urban
Meyer regarding recruiting,"
Smith said in a statement.

St. Andrews basketball will head

Francois (Burtonsville, MD)
grabbed 11 of the Knights’
rebounds, with Fulcher getting
seven and Tyler Knight (Greenville,
N.C.) snagging six. On another
defensive note, Domingo-Francois
put up her hands for two blocked
shots against Pfeiffer, while Fulcher
knocked down an additional block
for St. Andrews.

actually sign their letters of
intent, however, their commitment is not legally binding.
Still, most coaches in the
conference have acknowledged
an unwritten gentleman's
agreement to not swoop in and
grab players who have pledged
to another Big Ten school.
Former Purdue coach Joe Tiller
blasted former Michigan coach
Rich Rodriguez for doing just
that four years ago.
Asked Wednesday if he
had "flipped" a lot of recruits
this year who had committed elsewhere, Meyer said,
"Sometimes they say, 'How
can you go recruit a young guy
committed to another school?'
You ask a question, 'Are you
interested?' If they say no, you
move on.
"If they say, 'Yes, very interested,' then you throw that

"I liked the old surface, too, but you have to repave
at certain times," Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey
Kahne said. "To repave now, it might take a few races
to get back to where we want it, but overall it'll be
good."
Kahne also said he's in favor of a night race at Kansas
Speedway, something that Warren has been pushing for
since the lights were installed last year.
It won't happen this season, but the track president
is optimistic about next year.
"One day race, one night race — the tracks change,"
Kahne said. "They race differently at night, so it'll be
good. I'd be looking forward to that."

Belichick popped in there with
some friends a few summers ago
to hear a Bruce Springsteen cover
band, said Fox, one of three owners
of the nearly 50-year-old nightclub
that he calls "a five-star dive bar."
"He was low-key, kept to himself
with his friends, just enjoyed the
music and was very hospitable," Fox
said. "When they left he said, 'See
you guys later.' He was the coolest
guy in the building, just chilling out."
He chilled at a Celtics playoff game
few years ago, too. Sitting beside
girlfriend Linda Holliday, a former
Mrs. Arkansas contestant, the two
turned to each other in their courtside seats and kissed. He waved
when he was introduced, getting a
loud ovation from the crowd.
"I don't know if it's a lady in his life
or what the deal is, but he definitely
smiles a little more than he used to,"
wide receiver Wes Welker said.
"Bill may be wanting to market
himself more and this may be a longterm change. Time will tell," said
Bob Williams, chief executive officer
of Burns Entertainment and Sports
Marketing in Chicago, a company
that matches celebrities with advertisers and endorsement opportunities.

Couch appeals
to displaced
Dallas fans
INDIANAPOLIS (AP)
— A seat at the Super
Bowl will be a lot easier to
come by for many of the
fans who couldn't get one
last year in Dallas.
They'll be at home on
the couch.
Of the roughly 3,200
fans who found themselves
scrambling in last year's
seating fiasco, 246 took
the NFL up on its offer of
a ticket to Sunday's game
in Indianapolis between
the New England Patriots
and the New York Giants.
The rest accepted a financial settlement from the
NFL, plan to go to a future
Super Bowl or are suing
the league.
"It was like a dream to
be able to go, but it was
like a nightmare having
to go through it," said
Green Bay Packers fan
Mike Feldt, who was at
the game with his son,
then 19. "You have to put
it behind you and move
on. We were compensated,
and I was satisfied with
that."
Everything about the
$1.2 billion Cowboys
Stadium is oversized, and
Cowboys owner Jerry
Jones hoped to have an
attendance record to
match for last year's game
between the Packers and
Pittsburgh Steelers. About
15,000 temporary seats
were added to boost attendance to some 105,000
people, which would have
topped the 103,985 at the
Rose Bowl for the 1980
Super Bowl.
But hours before kickoff,
NFL officials announced
that about 1,250 temporary seats had been deemed
unsafe. The league scrambled to find new seats for
about 850 people, but the
rest — many of whom
were Packers or Steelers
season-ticket holders —
were forced to watch from
standing-room only locations around the stadium.
Some spent hours in the
basement of the place,
while others were shepherded from spot to spot
to spot without any clear
answers about what was
happening.
"The whole crisis management- contingency
planning was lacking or
non-existent. That was my
most frustrating part," said
Bill Jamison, a Steelers
season ticket holder who
took his 14-year-old son
to Dallas.
Indy's homespun
charm wins over
East Coast fans
account in recent weeks,
stressing the need for a
human touch as it trained
taxi drivers, hospitality
workers and volunteers in
the ways of nice. Their
tips? Make eye contact
at 20 feet. Smile at 12
feet. And be sure to urge
visitors to "have a super
day."
It might seem hokey,
but New Yorker John
Jolly was quick to relish
the friendliness just hours
after he arrived Thursday
to join his five brothers
in taking their terminally
ill, cancer-stricken dad to
cheer on their beloved
Giants at Sunday's game.
Two strangers from Indy
asked what he liked about
the city, then offered tips
on hot spots to see.
All for the bargain price
of free.
The 37-year-old salesman says New Yorkers are
misunderstood, much like
Indy may have been as the
place coastal Americans
tend to dismiss as "flyover country."
"There's a stigma with
New York, that we're
aggressive and over
the top. That's wrong,"
said Jolly, lauding the
Porterhouse he'd just
had at Indy's century-old
St. Elmo Steak House,
a favorite hangout of
Peyton Manning.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP)
— Indianapolis' chowder
and fried clams didn't
measure up to the storied
fare that has spoiled John
and Cheryl Younghans in
their native New England.
Fellow New England
Patriots fan Bob Ritchie
drove to the Hoosier
State from Massachusetts
and when he arrived was
floored by the flatness.
The Circle City, it
seemed, was ripe for a culture clash with Northeast
fans
converging
on
the Midwest for Super
Bowl weekend. They're
famously blunt and often
brash, a stark contrast
to Indiana's "Hoosier
hospitality." The fast
pace of East Coast living
runs counter to Indiana
mellow. Conservatives
rule Indiana politics.
On the East Coast?
Fuhgeddaboutit.
But something surprising is happening: The
East Coasters like Indy
anyway.
"I think they have
outdone
themselves,"
said Cheryl Younghans,
62, who has homes in
Madison, Ala., and her
native Massachusetts.
East Coast fans are finding Indy's charm quite
disarming. And that's by
design: Indianapolis took
the potential clash into

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday,
Feb. 4, 2012:
You are unusually caring and
nurturing to those in your day-to-day
life. Often you are startled by people’s
reactions. Your personal and home
life anchors you, allowing you to flex
with the many odd situations you
might come into contact with. Learn
not to challenge others, as they could
become defiant just to be defiant. If
you are single, you’ll meet someone
in your daily travels. Take your time
getting to know each other. If you are
attached, the two of you grow closer
through taking on a mutually interesting hobby. CANCER can be a little
sloppy.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day
You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive;
3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
HHH A recent disagreement could
be worked out, if you so choose. Let
go of a power play, knowing full well
what is possible. Invest a little cash in
a situation; most people will come out
smiling. Tonight: Entertain at home.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
HHHHH Reach out for others.
You could be confused by everything
that you hear. Step back and determine what suits you. Make it OK to
adapt to a changeable person. He or
she simply might be quirky. Tonight:
Hang out with friends.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHH You might feel as if you
must follow through on a situation
and make the best of it. Laughter surrounds a friendship. Be more direct
and sure of yourself. Listen to feedback from a somewhat judgmental
person. Be appreciative, even if you
dislike his or her idea. Tonight: Your
treat.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
HHHH Relate directly to a loved
one who is difficult; however, don’t get
pulled into a power play. You might
want to try another approach. Make
it OK to go in your own direction on
a project or idea. Tonight: The only
answer is yes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
HH Whether you are bored or
simply not inspired, you will tend to
stay close to home. Quite a few people would like your company — you
simply aren’t interested. Whatever
you are doing is a high priority. In
some fashion, you are experiencing a
completion. Tonight: Play it low-key.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Horoscope
HHHH Opt to be with friends or
out and about. Don’t be alone. You
have a unique opportunity to meet
someone very different or partake in
an eye-opening event. A friend unintentionally puts you between a rock
and a hard place. Tonight: Where the
fun is.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHHH Take a stand and be willing to control a situation in a different
way or style. Your sense of humor
comes out when dealing with a roommate or family member who wants it
his or her way. Your good mood only
creates more defiance. This person is
coming from a feeling place. Tonight:
In the spotlight.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HHHH Detach, especially if you
are in an either/or situation. You
might not be as sure of yourself as
you might like. Too much questioning
could create a degree of insecurity.
Yes, it is wise to carefully reflect on
an issue, but detaching works even
better. Tonight: Where there is music.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HHHH Money and emotions all
are involved in a partnership decision.
You could find that the best decision is to lie back a little, walk in the
other person’s shoes and then pull
back and detach. Trust that you will
come up with an appropriate decision.
Tonight: Go along with a request.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHH You could be more oppositional and defiant than you realize.
Stop and take a hard look at a situation. Are you being controlling or
reactive? Only you know for sure.
Relax and handle this issue perhaps
at a later date. Choose to have fun.
Tonight: Acting like it is the weekend.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHH You plunge into a task or
project, sure of yourself. By the end,
you might be questioning the original
decision. Stop and give some thought
to which direction might be the best
to go in. Tonight: Whatever you do,
make it easy!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
HHHHH Join a child or loved one,
and make the most of the moment.
Clearly your ideas and another person’s do not match. Go along with
the other person’s. You will enjoy him
or her even more if you do. A friend
could be upset. Tonight: This, too, will
pass.

Cruise bookings fall after Concordia wreck
NEW YORK (AP) — The
frightful images of a sinking
Italian cruise ship have scared
off some cruise passengers, at
least temporarily, during the
industry's peak booking season.
Travel agents — who book
more than two-thirds of cruise
passengers worldwide — have
been nervously watching bookings ever since the Costa
Concordia, which is owned by
Carnival Corp, ran aground on
Jan. 13.
On Monday, they got a new
reason to be nervous: bookings fell significantly for
Miami-based Carnival Corp.
following the Costa accident.
Attention is now focused on
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.,
which reports earnings on
Thursday. An increase there
could show that passengers are
fleeing Carnival over safety
fears. A decrease could indicate an overall distrust of all
cruise lines.
Nearly 11 million Americans
took a cruise last year, generating an estimated $14.5 billion
in revenue for the industry,
according to PhoCusWright,
a travel research firm. Like
the rest of the travel industry,
cruise lines are still recovering from the Great Recession.
Associated Press
The wrecked Costa Concordia will be refloated in its entirety and removed.
"in the mid-teens compared to
the prior year." Reservations
hit a low on Jan. 16, the company said in its annual report
filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission.
Carnival operates 101 ships
under several brands including Costa, Carnival, Cunard,
Holland America, Princess and
Seabourn. It said reservations
with the Costa line are "down
Several new mega-ships started sailing just as passengers
struggling with their finances
decided to stay home. But 2012
was supposed to be a year of
moderate growth.
Carnival won't say exactly how much bookings have
dropped, but it disclosed
Monday that in the 12 days
following the Concordia capsizing there was a percent decline
significantly" but difficult to
interpret because many Costa
customers were rebooked on
other ships because of the loss
of the Concordia ship.
"Despite these recent trends,
we believe the incident will not
have a significant long-term
impact on our business," the
company said.
Carnival's statement is the
first evidence that passengers
are hesitant to embark on
cruises after seeing the awful
images of the Concordia shipwrecked off the Italian coast.
More than 4,200 passengers
and crew were on board the
ship at the time of the accident.
Seventeen bodies have been
recovered, one of which has
not yet been identified. Sixteen
people are missing.
Europeans, who have been
bombarded with daily reports
of the accident, have been
particularly skittish. They
accounted for about 38 percent
of Carnival's revenues last year.
Jaime Katz, an analyst at
Morningstar, noted that there
were big discounts on some
seven-day cruises out of Rome
while other trips had raised
prices.
Discounts depend on which
company is operating the ship
and where it is traveling. Katz
added that first time cruisers
might also be more hesitant to
book.
Unlike plane tickets or hotel
rooms which are mostly booked
directly through the internet,
most cruises are sold by travel
agents. Passengers like speaking with somebody who can
assist them with all the decisions and quirks involving each
ship and itinerary.
Venezuelans line up to switch implants
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — The
office of plastic surgeon Ignacio Sousa is
so packed that women are lined up outside the door. College students in their
20s, housewives in their 40s, middle-class
office workers: nearly all are fearful that
their breast implants may be leaking.
Thousands of women worldwide are
consulting their doctors about health concerns that have sprung up since December
due to faulty silicone breast implants made
by the now-defunct French company Poly
Implant Prothese, or PIP.
In some cases, the implants filled with
industrial-grade silicone have split open,
prompting growing demand for their
removal.
"It's like a snowball," said Sousa, who
has been receiving dozens of patients
every day since the news broke that French
authorities recommended the implants be
removed.
The scandal has hit beauty-obsessed
Venezuela particularly hard. An estimated
16,000 Venezuelans have the implants,
one of the highest figures among Latin
American countries, along with muchlarger Brazil, where about 20,000 women
have PIP-made implants.
Breast enlargement surgery is common
in Venezuela and has grown in popularity in recent years among middle-class
women, thanks in part to low-interest
loans offered by private clinics for the
operations.
The PIP brand was used frequently until
the implants were pulled from the market
in 2010.
Like many of those affected in Venezuela,
Sania Arroyo has struggled with the
mounting medical bills. The 33-year-old
bank employee and single mother managed to save about 20,000 bolivars, or
$4,600, for surgery to replace the implants
in January, scraping together nearly four
times what she paid to have them inserted
in 2007.
She suspected a problem with the
implants when she felt a tingling pain
under her left breast, and an ultrasound
exam confirmed one had ruptured and was
leaking silicone into her body.
She said the replacement implants feel
more comfortable, but she's still apprehen-
sive about them.
"I feel so much better now, although I
still have the fear something similar could
happen again," Arroyo said, holding a plastic case containing the ruptured implant
and the yellowish silicone that leaked out.
PIP's silicone gel is transparent, but
doctors say the substance often turns yellow when it comes in contact with body
tissues.
Arroyo is one of 495 Venezuelans who
are suing companies that sold the implants,
demanding payment of medical costs.
Venezuela's government offered to
remove the implants for free, but many
women say they won't take up the offer
because they prefer to have new implants
and the government won't pay for them.
Namaste, travelers! SFO opens quiet airport yoga studio
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Stressed
out by flying?
Travelers in Northern California can
now find their inner calm in the Yoga
Room at San Francisco International
Airport.
The quiet, dimly lit studio officially
opened last week in a former storage
room just past the security checkpoint
at SFO's Terminal 2.
Airport
officials
believe
the
150-square-foot room with mirrored
walls is the world's first airport yoga
studio, said spokesman Mike McCarron.
The room, open to all ticketed passengers, contains a few chairs and yoga
mats
but6B
no instructors or televisions.
Page
No shoes, food, drinks or cell phones
are allowed.
"Silence is appreciated," says a sign
spelling out "Yoga Room Etiquette."
A prominent blue-and-white sign with
a Buddha-like pictogram beckons visitors: "Come check out our Yoga Room."
Frequent flyer Maria Poole accepted
the invitation, practicing a downward
dog asana and other yoga poses before
boarding her flight.
"It's perfect," said Poole, 47, of
Lafayette. "I think it should be in every
airport, especially the terminals that I
fly through. This would be such a great
way for me to get my exercise in, get
a little peacehe
and quiet
— a little Zen
aurinBurg
T
L
moment."
The Yoga Room is just the latest
example of how airports are trying to
improve the passenger experience and
showcase their regional culture, noting
the ancient practice's popularity in the
San Francisco Bay area, said Debby
McElroy, executive vice president of
Airports Council International-North
America.
In recent years, airports have upgraded their food and shopping venues and
added massage parlors, nail salons, dry
cleaners and pet hotels, McElroy said,
but SFO is the first to add a yoga room
in North America and probably the
world.

"I expect other airports will be looking at whether a yoga room at their
airport makes sense," McElroy said.
SFO officials say the idea came from
a passenger who checked out the newly
remodeled terminal last year and told
Airport Director John Martin it was
lacking one thing: a yoga room.
Martin, a long-time yoga practitioner, agreed. Airport managers spent
$15,000 to $20,000 to turn the storage
space into the yoga studio.
SFO officials had to design the Yoga
icon after they couldn't find one in
the international guide of airport pictograms that direct travelers to taxis,
restrooms
and ,baggage
claim 4,
carousels.
