TODAY IN MUSIC HISTORY
• In 1991, Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose precipitated a not in a St. Louis suburb by jumping off the stage and attacking a fan videotaping the heavy metal band’s concert. Sixty people were hurt and the Riverport Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, Miss., was wrecked.
The crowd of 19,000 went wild after Rose smashed a microphone to the floor and stopped the concert. Fans destroyed some of Guns N’ Roses’ equipment, including two large video screens. Several subsequent concerts on the band’s tour were cancelled.
Police said the band hopped on a bus and left town while the crowd noted. Several lawsuits were filed and Rose was charged with assault and property damage. He was finally arrested a year later as he returned to New York from a European tour.
He was eventually put on probation for two years and ordered to donate $50,000 to five social service organizations.
• In 1955, the Lawrence Welk TV show debuted on ABC. The program ran for 27 years, both on the network and in syndication.
• In 1958, Amencan pianist Van Cliburn won the Tchaikovsky competition for young pianists in Moscow by performing the composer’s Piano Concerto Number One. His recording of that work became the first classical album to sell a million copies. On the same date 31 years later, in 1989, Cliburn returned to Moscow to perform the concerto for an audience that included Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and his wife.
• In 1969, the hard rock band Mountain was formed by Felix Pappalardi and Leslie West. Pappalardi had produced a successful solo album by West, and they were inspired to form a band. Mountain’s music was a cruder, louder version of that played by Cream, whose albums were also produced by Pappalardi. Mountain had two gold albums at the beginning of the 1970s — Mountain Climbing and Nantucket Sleighride.
• In 1987, Sting did not attend his mother’s funeral in England, opting instead to stay in Monserrat to finish recording his album Nothing Like the Sun.
Lets move on casino
Mayor Atkinson didn’t worry about smokers cursing city council, so why is he worried about people cursing council if the casino proposal butchered? Like Court. Black says, let’s move ahead.
Mayor Reg speaks tor me
Who says Mayor Reg isn’t speaking for a lot of the people? I, for one, am leery of a deal that forever gives up a part of a public heritage to a special interest group. It’s a little scary and maybe Mayor Reg is sticking up for a lot of people who are worried as well.
Casinos are trouble
Casinos are not the cash cow that people think they are and there are a lot of problems with them that people are not looking at. These all have to be examined before anything is signed on a dotted line.
City out of its mind
Re: the casino I think the city is absolutely out of its mind and they are going to destroy our happy little city and it’s only going to hurt the poor.
Quit pouting when you lose, Reg
I’m calling to say Mayor Reg should quit pouting every time he loses an issue and not be angry with his city council. Council is probably representing the community at large with regard to the gambling casino. Reg should quit crying.
Aides filming at RNs
About all these RNs who got their big increase — where is your support for the aides now who are planning to go on strike? All they do is smile, and laugh at our contract. Let us go on strike and then we’ll see who’s going to do all their work around the hospital. Like you don’t know we do all their work
FOR WEDNESDAY, JULY 3
Get ready for the weekend, when the best-laid plans go up iii smoke. From now through Sunday, spontaneity is the name of the game. Keep alternative activities and travel arrangements in the back of your mind, and your flexibility will bring surprising luck and fun. Something you said you’d never do or see now becomes attractive.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Moods are cheerful, and energy is high. Get loose, and give up the need to control the flow of things. Someone close by admires your inquisitive mind. Lost souls find a safe haven in your home.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do your deep thinking in the early hours and your interpersonal relating in the afternoon. Listen to the trials of others for strength. Some of the struggling you’ve been doing is unnecessary. Get out of a complicated romance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s time to put your requests out to the world. Even if you don’t hear what you’d hoped, you will find out what you needed to know. Changes, travel, family matters and children are all tension producers.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Concentration and learning are character building. Revise your strategy — a better one is assembled now. You have a legitimate chance to hit the jackpot! Attention comes your way naturally. You don’t
have to work hard for it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Dissatisfaction with your job or relationship points to the fact that you need more stimulation. Feelings are intensified as you are more honest with your mate. Act quickly on those psychic hunches this afternoon.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 3). You reconnect with old loves, long-lost friends, estranged relatives and old employers, but now, you have the upper hand. New strategic business and investment partnerships are formed as well. Past money due you is finally paid, and you get an apology to boot. New relationships hinge on your being emotionally available. Select Libra and Leo partners. Your
_ lucky numbers are 5, IO, 17,
21 and 31.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Too much diversity in your schedule can tire you out, strain your nerves or lead to fighting. Pick one goal, and commit to it. Your creative ideas are worth a bundle, and others are willing to acknowledge your talent.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Enjoying your job is the greatest insurance that you’ll remain indispensable to your employer. Raises or promotions are in the works! There are strong possibilities for
romance tonight, particularly if you go out on the town.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Interesting prospects are popping up all over. Sort through your responsibilities to get a more streamlined and manageable schedule. Make necessary repairs now or you’ll pay the consequences for your procrastination.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Make a decision, take a stand, and don’t look back. Your warmth, support and comfort are needed at work. Don’t let tales of woe depress you — they aren’t even true. You’re in a sociable, fun-loving mood tonight!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Make wise use of the resources and talents of others. A love interest is taking up more and more of your time. Employers or family members allow you to change your mind at the last minute if you need to.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Quiet determination will serve your love life as well as it does your career. At home, create an environment for chilling out. A colleague is asking you to join an entrepreneurial debut — be careful not to invest prematurely.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Romance is best when it is spur of the moment, so ask out that Libra or Gemini on the fly. At work, your attributes are appreciated, giving you more clout. Take good care of what others entrust you with.
Teen wants to go on birth control
EDITOR*S NOTE: Ann Landers answered her readers’ letters up to her death on June 22. The following was one of her last columns.
Dear Ann Landers: My bright, beautiful 16-year-old daughter has just informed me that she wants to see my gynecologist and obtain birth control. “Katie” is a good student, active in school and mature for her age.
She is dating her first real boyfriend. He is 18 and bound for an out-of-state college next year. Katie told me she realizes the relationship may not last, but she will deal with that when it comes.
I have talked to Katie about pre-marital sex and told her she should wait until marriage. I think 16 is too young to understand the ramification'; of beinp involved sexnallv However I
u - ' * - - ' — - - >
believe it is better to be safe than sorry, and if she does decide to have sex, I want her to use birth control.
I am worried that this young man will break her heart and she will regret being intimate with him. Is there anything I can do? — Moral Mother in Houston
Dear Houston Mom: You cannot prevent Katie from having sex if she is determined to do so, but you are wise to provide birth control just in case. I also recommend you discuss your particular concerns with her.
Help her understand why sexual intimacy at
her age can be emotionally dangerous. You might also mention that somewhere down the road, her future husband will appreciate that she waited a little longer for him. This is an important decision for Katie, and I hope she chooses the right path. Good luck.
Dear Ann Landers: I have been living with “Barry” for three years, and we plan to be married when I am finished with school. In the last two months, Barry has been offered several excellent job opportunities in Massachusetts. He now tells me he would like to move there.
I have looked into schools in Massachusetts, and the cost is substantially higher.
Ako comp r\f mu /-'tv* Hi Fe will
AWH LANDERS not transfer, and I will have to take those classes over. It
_ will take me an additional
year to graduate.
I’m not sure I can afford the extra tuition, and may have to stop going to school and get a job instead.
I am not happy about moving, but Barry is so excited he can hardly wait. I don’t want him to pass up a good career opportunity, but I see no future for me on the East Coast. Please tell me what to do. — Need Advice in Kansas
Dear Kansas: Is there any way you can afford
Adam Sandler’s still got it
LOS ANGELES — Mr. Deeds went to town in a big way as the Adam Sandler comedy debuted as the No. I weekend film with $37.6 million US.
Last weekend’s No. I film, Minority Report, slipped to third place with $21.6 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Lib & Stitch, which opened just $400,000 behind Minority Report last weekend, remained the No.
2 movie with $22.2 million.
The weekend’s other new wide release, the animated TV adaptation Hey Arnold! The Movie, opened a distant sixth with a weak $6 million.
A remake of Frank Capra and Gary Cooper’s Mr. Deeds Goes to Town,
Sandler’s film overcame generally bad reviews and played well among his core audience of young males, a group that
those Massachusetts schools with financial aid or scholarships?
Would Barry help you with tuition? If you can find no way to move east, Barry’s new job should pay enough to permit an occasional weekend visit, and telephones and e-mail can keep you in close touch until you finish your education. Long-distance relationships can work if both parties are willing to put forth the effort.
Dear Ann Landers: Thank you for telling parents to bolt dressers to the wall so they will not fall over on young children. Please tell them to bolt ALL furniture, including wall units, paintings and tables.
My precious 16-month-old grandson opened the bottom drawer of a small nightstand. The stand fell over, and he went headfirst into the drawer, which eluded un Ins linum, suffucaimg him.
People always assume it won’t happen to them or that their child would never climb on drawers. They are wrong. There is always a first time. — Grieving Grandparents in the Midwest
Dear Grandparents: Readers from around the country wrote with warnings about cabinets, mirrors, tables, old refrigerators, car trunks and chests with latches.
I hope all parents will check their homes for possible hazards and do what is necessary to protect their children.
They are too precious to lose.
pays little heed to critics.
“With that audience, he’s four stars,” said Jeff Blake, head of distribution and marketing for Sony.
Sandler plays a goodhearted smalltown guy who inherits $40 billion and winds up clashing with cynical city dwellers over his homespun values. Winona Ryder co-stars as Sandler’s love interest.
