Ice cream tycoon looses city election
WILLISTON, Vt. (AP) — Ice cream mogul Jerry Greenfield — the Jerry in the Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc. empire—got a taste of politics and found it wasn’t especially sweet.
Greenfield came in third in a four-way race for two open seats on the town Board of Selectmen. He lost by about two-dozen votes during Tuesday's town meeting.
Greenfield, who founded Ben & Jerry's in a Burlington gas station with Ben Cohen, has become active during the past few years in Williston politics.
He has worked with a group that so far has blocked proposals for a shopping midi and Wal-Mart in the largely rural town, one of Burlington’s fastest-growing suburbs.

WACO, Texas —The tape was played, the message delivered. But David Koresh didn’t keep the promise of an immediate end to the standoff between his armed religious followers and federal agents.
Texas radio stations Tuesday played a 58-minute sermon from Koresh, edited by the FBI to put his promise to surrender at the beginning, but when the tape ended at 2:30 p.m., the stalemate at the Brandi Davidians’ compound east of Waco was unchanged.
Ambulances and law enforcement vehicles that had moved nearer the compound went unused. Hospitals told to expect the arrival of injured people were left waiting.
Jack Killorin, a spokesman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms, said agents were prepared to wait "a long time... we don’t have a time firame for this.”
The deadlock began Sunday morning as ATF agents tried to. serve Koresh with warrants charging him with federal gun violations. The agents were met with a 45-minute barrage of gunfire, killing four and wounding 16; Koresh said his 2-year-old daughter was killed.
A second, smaller battle later Sunday with three cult members killed one, wounded another and ended with the third under airest A well placed federal official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Tuesday at least IO cult members were dead.
Most of Tuesday was spent with rising and falling expectations of an approaching end to the standoff.
"I, David Koresh, agree upon the broadcasting of this tape to come out peacefully with all the people immediately,” he said on the tape, broadcast on Dallas radio station KRLD and Waco religious station KBBM, which relayed the tape to a Chrisn Revelation, the last book in the Bible. Koresh’s followers believe he is the book’s Lamb who can unleash the events that bring about the end of the world.
To skeptics, Koresh said, “Even a man like Christ has to meet with unbelief.” He also echoed Jesus at the Crucifixion, saying “Father, in your hand I commit my spirit”
“Tm sure you’re all aware of how Tm involved in a very serious thing right now...” Koresh said. “I am really concerned about the lives of my brethren here and also really concerned even greater
about the lives of all those in this world.”
In pre-dawn conversations Monday with KRLD, Koresh had said he would surrender if his message could be heard.
On Tuesday he said: “We made an agreement with ATF agents that they would allow me to have national coverage of this tape that I might give to the world all my... information that I have tried so hard to share with people, that if I would do this that all the people here at the facility here, at the compound, will give ourselves over to the world, give ourselves out to you, this is what I promised, this is what I am going to keep.”
While he didn’t keep that promise, he did earlier Tuesday continue to allow some people to leave the compound.

DEAR ABBY: Don Richter of Leesburg, Ga., wrote: “Stick to the advice to the lovelorn, Abby, and stop being a public forum for crybabies."
Abby, I think Mr. Richter is out of line. Be that as it may, when Fiorello La Guardia was the mayor
of New York City (1933 to 1945), he hung above his desk at City Hall this pronouncement by Abraham Lincoln:
“If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how — the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won’t amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, IO angels swearing I was right would make no difference.”
