With their hopes fading and legal op- tions exhausted, Terri Schiavo's family appeared quietly resigned Sunday to watching her die as they arranged for the severely brain-damaged woman to re- ceive Easter communion on her ninth day without food or water. Outside the hospice, protesters were not as calm. Five were ar- rested, and about a half-dozen people in wheelchairs got out of them and lay in the driveway, shouting "We're not dead Schiavo's husband, who a day earlier denied a request from his wife's parents that she be given communion, granted permission Sunday to offer the sacrament. The Rev. Thaddeus Malanow- ski said he gave Schiavo wine Inside The other patients: Hospice families and neighbors are annoyed at Tom Delay's decision: Majority leader, who led fight in House for Schiavo's parents, had a life-and-death decision to make about his but could not give her a fleck of communion bread because her tongue was dry. He administered the last rites, anointing her with holy oil and giving a blessing. The priest's announcement drew applause and cheers from the crowd, which spent most of the day heckling police and pro- testing loudly. The noise prompted Schiavo's brother, Bobby Schindler, to come out and ask protesters to tone down their behavior. "We are not going to solve the problem today by getting ar- he told the restless crowd. "We can change laws, ou we tire not. to not them today You are speaking for our family." Schiavo's husband and par- ents have battled for years over whether the 41 -year-old woman wanted to live or die.

Associated Press Vatican City Millions waited to hear him but waited in vain. And some cried as they stood shoulder-to-shoulder in St. Peter's Square. For the first time in his long papacy, John Paul II fell silent throughout Holy Week, able only to make a few unintelligible sounds when he tried to speak Easter Sunday. In the end, the pontiff man- aged only to greet the saddened crowd with a sign of the cross. Aides had readied a micro- phone, and the pope tried to utter a few words from his studio win- dow overlooking the square. But after issuing only a few guttural sounds, he just blessed the crowd with his hand and the mi- crophone was taken away. Vatican watchers had been anxiously awaiting John Paul's appearance for signs of how the 84-year-old pontiff was faring Driver says fatal crash made him drink more Pier Paoio Cito The Associated Press POPE JOHN PAUL II appears from his studio's window overlook- ing St. Peter's Square at the Vatican for the Easter Sunday bless- ing. He was unable to speak and managed only to make the sign of the cross. It was the first time in his 26-year reign that he did not preside cvsr the Mass en Easter. Inside New York City's Easter Celebrations in Prosecutor agrees that treatment, not prison, is the proper choice. By Jim O'Hara Staff writer Steven DiRaddo, of De Witt, has little recollection beyond the horrible sound of impact of the October eve- ning when he got drunk at work, drove home and slammed his car head-on into another vehicle. But he vividly remembers sit- ting in the back seat of a police car as his father told him the young woman in the ether car was dead. "How can I live with Di- Raddo, 37, recalls thinking. DiRaddo has spent more than 20 years searching for an answer since Amy Dudak, 23, died on that night in 1984 when he was 17. For the past two decades. Du- dak's death has haunted DiRad- do. He said he has gone through and lost a string of friends and has been so depressed his family feared he might kill him- self. He turned to alcohol to try and forget it all, he said, but that just earned him two more drunken driving convictions. The most recent conviction his first fel- ony DWI brought him to Onondaga County Court March 14 to be sentenced to five years' probation. It also has gotten DiRaddo into intensive psychiatric coun- seling that he believes may, for the first time, help him deal with his guilt over Dudak's death. "I have to surrender.
