CULVER CITY. Calif. (AP) -Carroll O’Connor, whose portrayal of cranky bigot Archie Bunker on “All in the Family” pioneered an era of TV comedies that brought race relations into America’s living rooms, died Thursday of a heart attack. He was 76. O’Connor showed Archie as a vulnerable and threatened family tyrant, an outdated, uneducated man fearful of the sexual, political and racial
changes he saw sweeping America from the living-room easy chair that he would park himself every night. His sputtering tirades over minorities, liberals and his long-haired, hippie son-in-law Mike, whom he called “Meathead,” began in 1971. The series ranked No. I for five years.Pope to visit troubled Ukraine
VATICAN CITY (AP) —
Pope John Paul II departs today for Ukraine on what the Vatican calls a mission of
“peace and reconciliation,” hoping to cool tensions between Catholics and Orthodox Christians and overcome opposition to a pilgrimage to Moscow. The five-day trip has helped stir passions contained for decades when Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union. Since the Soviet Union’s collapse IO years ago, the Orthodox majority has accused Catholics of using their newly gained freedoms to extend their influence, regain churches and seize property and other assets taken by the former communist rulers.Troops draw back after threat
WASHINGTON (AP) — In response to a threat against Americans in the Middle East, a Marine Corps training exercise in Jordan has been cut short and Navy ships have been ordered out of port in Bahrain, Pentagon officials said Friday. The threat was described by the officials as “non-specific,” meaning it was aimed at Americans but not necessarily against members of the military.
The Jubilee Polka Band will perform at 7:30 p.m. today at the Bavarian Village, 212 W. Austin St., New Braunfels. Cover
charge is $4; children under 54 inches are free with an adult. For more information, call 625-0815.
