November 29th, 2010

A 15-year-old high school student who had “some problems in school” held 24 hostages with two firearms for about five hours on Monday.

The suspect shot himself when authorities entered the room and was the only one injured in the standoff, Marinette police chief Jeff Skorik said. The suspect was taken to a hospital and has been reunited with his family. His condition was unknown Monday night.

Marinette High School will be closed today as students, their parents and the community regroup after the standoff, Marinette School District Superintendent Tim Baneck said during a press conference Monday night. Grief support will be available to anyone impacted by the standoff, he said. Baneck said he did not have a timeline for reopening the school.

The gunman, who has not been identified by authorities, was described by a family friend as “one of the sweetest kids you ever want to know.”

“I’m at a loss as to why the young man would have felt pushed to this point,” said Keith Schroeder, a former teacher in the Marinette School District who knows the family. “I know there was some things going on at school, but I’m just at a loss.”

Student hostage Zach Campbell said the incident started when the kids in the room were watching a movie and the student gunman opened fire at the projector, then fired another round near the teacher.

The gunman “didn’t seem like he wanted to hurt anybody,” Campbell said. And at one point, the teacher in the room, 10th-grade teacher Valerie Burd, tried talk to him: “He really got upset when she tried to talk to him. He told her to be quiet.”

One student in the room helped break the ice with the gunman by asking about hunting, Campbell said.

“We talked for, I’d say, six hours,” Campbell said. “He was calm, he was laughing with us, having a conversation.”

The gunman talked with those in the room about hunting, fishing, music and movies.

Student Austin Biehl said he was scared when the incident began, but those feelings eventually changed.

“As it progressed, it was just calm. Everyone was just fine,” Biehl said.

Skorik said the investigation into the incident is just beginning and he does not know whether criminal charges would be recommended against the gunman.

The city of Marinette is 50 miles north of Green Bay and has a population of about 11,700. Marinette High School has about 800 students.

Shortly before all the hostages were released, the gunman allowed five to leave the classroom. Authorities said later he allowed the first wave out of the room because they had to use the restroom.

Campbell said he “asked if I could go to the bathroom. I didn’t have to go, just wanted to see if I could leave.” He said he was the second person to leave the room.

Burd likely played a role in securing her release and the release of the students, Schroeder said.

“She’s very dedicated, educated, loves children,” he said. “If I had been that classroom, I don’t know what I’d have been able to do.”

News of the hostages’ release came as a text message just as a prayer group in Peshtigo began praying for that very thing, said Tim Harwell, youth pastor at the church.

“As a matter of fact, we were praying at that very moment for the release of all the kids, said ‘amen,’ and then someone read the text message,” Harwell said. “We all collapsed.”

Schroeder said he wouldn’t get specific about the problems the gunman had been having at school but said, “I know there was some problems at school. … Somehow, we as a society need to rein in the types of things that are going on with our children…

“He’s a victim, too,” Schroeder said. “People may not realize that. Something had to push him to do this. With the support system and family life that he has, I’m just at a loss. I couldn’t say enough good things about the family, and they are so involved.”

Schroeder said he didn’t know where the guns the boy used had come from.

Mario Monicelli (R) directing Marcello Mastroianni (L)
30 November 2010 Last updated at 05:05 ET

One of the greats of post-war Italian cinema, Mario Monicelli, has killed himself by jumping out of a hospital window, media reports say.

Monicelli, 95, was dubbed “father of Italian comedy” for films such as Amici Mei (My Dear Friends) and Big Deal on Madonna Street (1958).

He was said to have leapt from the fifth floor of a Rome hospital where he was being treated for terminal cancer.

He received numerous awards and was nominated four times for an Oscar.

Best known for his comedies, Monicelli also directed serious films

Monicelli was admitted a few days ago to San Giovanni hospital where he was being treated for prostate cancer, reports said.

He made his debut as a director in 1949 and won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival 10 years later for The Great War.

Big Deal on Madonna Street – I Soliti Ignoti in Italian – helped launch the careers of Marcello Mastroianni, Claudia Cardinale and Vittorio Gassman.

Mario Monicelli directed 70 films, often focusing on stories about ordinary people confronted by extraordinary circumstances.

A Very Little Man (1977) was one of his best-known works about a man who takes justice into his own hands after his son is killed in a robbery.

Monicelli was known as politically left-wing and had called last year for students to protest against the government’s proposals for cuts to the culture budget.

Mario Monicelli, the Italian director known as one of the great “comedia all’Italiana” filmmakers for movies including “Big Deal on Madonna Street” and “La Grande Guerra” (The Great War) in the 1950s and 60s, died Monday in Rome in an apparent suicide. He was 95.

The Oscar-nominated director and screenwriter Mario Monicelli in 2009.

A spokeswoman for the San Giovanni hospital in Rome, where Mr. Monicelli was being treated for a pancreatic condition that appeared terminal, told news agencies that he jumped to his death Monday night from his hospital room. His body was covered by a sheet for hours as police and medical examiners investigated the circumstances of his death.

Mr. Monicelli was a contemporary of the noted Italian filmmakers Federico Fellini and Ettore Scola and worked closely with some of the nation’s greatest actors, including Marcello Mastroianni, Toto and Alberto Sordi. His career spanned more than 60 years in which he wrote and directed dozens of films, documentaries, shorts and TV series, including 2006’s “The Roses of the Desert.” He was most well-known for the comedies “Big Deal on Madonna Street” (1958) a crime caper where inept criminals bungle their robbery of a pawn shop, and “La Grande Guerra” (1959) which won the Venice Film Festival’s Golden Lion Award for its comedic take on the tragedies of World War I. In 1991, the Venice Film Festival honored him with a lifetime achievement award.

Beyond its humor, Monicelli’s work combined comedy with serious social criticism of the difficulties faced by an Italian society that had been traumatized by wars and the Fascist movement.

“Monicelli’s films focused on the problems of people on the lower rungs of society trying to make do in a world that is just as ludicrous as their foolish attempts to get ahead,” The Times noted in a review of a 1997 retrospective showing eight of his films at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.

In addition to the critical success of his films, Mr. Monicelli also found commercial success.

“It took something to be able to combine great art and make great money at the box office,” said Peter Bondanella the author of “A History of Italian Cinema.” “Monicelli was really a super commercially viable guy who had a touch of genius too, and he knew what he could do with really good actors with a good script.”

His influence was also felt in American cinema. Several directors have have produced work inspired by “Big Deal on Madonna Street,” including Woody Allen’s “Small Time Crooks,” Louise Malle’s “Crackers,” Alan Taylor’s “Palookaville” and the Russo Brothers’ “Welcome to Collinwood.”

Ultimately, it was the mix of tragedy and comedy that drove Mr. Monicelli’s filmmaking.

“All Italian comedy is dramatic,” he said in a 2004 interview with Cineaste magazine “The situation is always dramatic, often tragic, but it’s treated in a humorous way. But people die in it, there’s no happy ending. That’s just what people like about it. The Italian comedy, the kind I make, always has this component.”

As the Congress closes ranks and tries to dismiss the Jagan factor in Andhra Pradesh, the rebel Reddy is in Kadapa district with his mother, Vijayalaxmi, and will visit the YSR samadhi there to pay respects to the former chief minister. Jagan Mohan Reddy quit the Congress and as the Kadapa MP on Monday. (Jagan’s resignation letter to Sonia: Full Text)
The party has a tricky task ahead and leaders insist that Jagan’s exit will have no impact on the Congress in Andhra Pradesh.  Consolidation is key as the party works out a new cabinet that will please as many people as possible. The crucial cabinet formation exercise will take place on Wednesday and there are fears that those left out will gravitate towards YSR’s son. (Who is Jagan Mohan Reddy?)
Jagan has publicly asked the MLAs who support him not to resign from the Congress. He would need 53 MLAs to split the party and at the moment sources in his camp say they do not have the support of more than 30. They do hope that number will increase after December 1. 
Because of Jagan’s pro-unified-Andhra stance, only one of the 50-odd Congress MLAs from the Telangana region supports him. His support base is essentially drawn from the other two regions. 
If Jagan were to manage to the split the party, the Congress could then look to the Prajya Rajyam Party (PRP),  Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) and the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) for outside support to the government.
There was talk of Chiranjeevi’s Praja Rajyam Party, with its 18 MLAs, filling the Jagan void, but the actor-turned politician has decided to stay out of the government for now, with talks falling through on ministerial berths. Sources said Chiranjeevi wanted four ministries, but the Congress was loath to give him that many.
There are also doubts over whether Chiru can deliver the 18 MLAs en bloc. At least four of them are openly with Jagan.
The next bit of action is now expected on Wednesday, when the new Andhra Pradesh cabinet of Kiran Kumar Reddy will be sworn in.  Jagan will be watching the proceedings from Kadapa district, where he shall remain on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Graphic: The world's most dangerous border

November 29, 2010 2:39 a.m. EST

Joint military exercises between South Korea and the United States continued in the Yellow Sea on Monday as tensions with nearby North Korea continue to brew.

On Monday, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said South Korea will “firmly” respond to future provocations from North Korea and declared that his nation “cannot remain patient” in the face of continued hostility from Pyongyang.

“Fellow citizens, at this point, actions are more important than words,” Lee said in a televised address. “Please have trust in the government and the military and support us.”

The divided peninsula — tense at the best of times — has been near the boiling point since Tuesday, when four people died in a North Korean artillery barrage that targeted the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong.

Lee called that attack an “inhuman crime” that followed decades of previous attacks from North Korea, including the sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan in March.

North Korea has consistently denied responsibility for the sinking of the Cheonan, which killed 46 South Korean sailors.

“It is difficult at this point to expect North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons or military adventurism,” Lee said. “We are now clearly aware that we cannot stay patient and be generous. That will only give rise to bigger provocations.”

Lee’s address came a day after South Korean and U.S. forces started joint military exercises Sunday, prompting a furious response from North Korea.

The aircraft carrier USS George Washington joined South Korea’s forces near the coasts of China and North Korea for the four-day drill, which the North called “no more than an attempt to find a pretext for aggression and ignite a war at any cost,” according to the official Korean Central News Agency.

China, North Korea’s closest ally, called Sunday for an emergency meeting of the six major powers involved in talks about the Korean peninsula.

Top diplomats from the six nations — which also include Japan, the United States and Russia — need to meet soon to “maintain peace and stability on the peninsula and ease the tension” in the region, Beijing’s special representative for the region, Wu Dawei, said Sunday.

A top Chinese envoy met with Lee on Sunday, and a high-ranking North Korean official will visit Beijing on Tuesday, China’s Xinhua news agency said.

South Korea said Sunday it did not think the time was right for a resumption of the six-party talks, but said it would “bear in mind” the Chinese proposal.

In Washington, meanwhile, a State Department official told CNN that the United States is consulting with its allies, but resumed six-party talks “cannot substitute for action by North Korea to comply with its obligations.”

“Clear steps by North Korea are needed to demonstrate a change of behavior,” said the official, who was not authorized to speak for attribution.

And U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday that the flare-up exposed the failure of “continued appeasement” of North Korea by Republican and Democratic administrations.

He said the United States has given North Korea more than $1 billion in aid over the past 15 years with the goal of getting them to the negotiating table.

“It seems the purpose of everything is to get the North Koreans to the table,” said McCain, the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee. “The North Koreans’ only claim to their position on the world stage is their nuclear capability. And they have a terrible, most repressive, oppressive regime in the world. They have hundreds of thousands of people in slave labor camps. And all of that seems to be sacrificed in the altar of, quote, ‘negotiations.'”

Meanwhile, the Washington-based ANSWER Coalition called for “an end to the U.S.-South Korean provocations” and announced rallies in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, on Monday.

“The United States and South Korean governments have been pursuing a policy of deliberate provocation over the past several months,” targeting North Korea and China, ANSWER’s website states.

“While hypocritically calling for ‘calm’ in words, Washington is escalating the crisis by its actions,” it said, referring to the U.S.-South Korea military exercises and the USS George Washington.

In his Monday speech, South Korea’s Lee said efforts to resolve the international standoff through negotiations and humanitarian assistance to the North were met with “nuclear development and the sinking of the Cheonan.”

He said the attack on Yeonpyeong Island would have been unlawful even in wartime, adding, “I cannot but be angered at their cruelty.”

North Korea said the South provoked the attack because shells from a South Korean millitary drill landed in the North’s waters.

The North called reports of civilian casualties part of South Korea’s “propaganda campaign” and accused the “enemy” of creating “a human shield by deploying civilians around artillery positions and inside military facilities before the launch of the provocation.”

The violence has sparked anger and political turmoil in South Korea.

The country’s defense minister, Kim Tae-young, resigned after the exchange of fire.

Veterans of the South Korean military protested over the weekend on the streets of Seoul, stating they were angry that their country’s government had not done enough to respond to the North’s shelling.

The tense maritime border between the two Koreas has become the major military flashpoint on the Korean peninsula in recent years.

The Yeonpyeong attack was the first direct artillery assault on South Korea since 1953, when an armistice ended fighting. North and South Korea are still technically at war.

Nielsen’s role as a hapless doctor in the disaster spoof film Airplane! made him a comic star

Veteran comic actor Leslie Nielsen, star of Airplane! and The Naked Gun, has died at the age of 84.

He died in hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he was being treated for pneumonia, his agent John S Kelly said.

Canadian-born Nielsen started out as a serious actor but in 1980, his role as a hapless doctor in the disaster spoof film Airplane! made him a comic star.

In all, he appeared in more than 100 films and had a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

“With his friends and his wife by his side, he just fell asleep and passed away,” his nephew Doug Nielsen said, the AFP news agency reported.

‘Don’t call me Shirley’

Born in the Canadian city of Regina in 1926, Leslie Nielsen enjoyed an acting career which spanned six decades.

He started as a television actor in New York in 1950, performing in about 150 live dramas.

In the mid-1950s, he moved to Hollywood, where he initially carved out a film career as a leading man, capitalising on his craggy good looks and 6ft2in (194cm) height.

Then in 1980 his deadpan delivery in the comedy disaster movie Airplane! marked him out as a gifted clown, says the BBC’s Rajesh Mirchandani in Los Angeles.

It was in this role that he became known for the line “Don’t call me Shirley”.

The success of Airplane! led to another TV role in the spoof crime show Police Squad where he first played accident-prone detective Frank Drebin.

He went on to make three films as the same character in the Naked Gun series, starring opposite Priscilla Presley.

He continued working into his eighties.

Nearly two weeks ago – at the age of 84 – Nielsen was taken into hospital in Florida where he lived, suffering from pneumonia.

His condition had worsened over the last two days and relatives said he passed away peacefully, our correspondent says.

Jenni-Lyn Watson Body Confirmed Leading to Arrest of Ex-BoyfriendSteven Pieper

11:08 AM on 28th November 2010

Police say they have arrested the ex-boyfriend of Jenni-Lyn Watson, whose body was found in a storage shed near Clay Central Park, New York.

Steven Pieper faces arraignment on murder charges, police said at a press conference today.

Watson and Pieper had an on-and-off relationship over an 18-month period, according to Onondaga County district attorney William Fitzpatrick. 

The arrest came hours after searchers combing through woods for any sign of  Watson found her body covered in debris behind a storage shed in a swampy area of Clay Central Park.

Mr Fitzpatrick claimed  Pieper was upset when Watson tried to end their relationship in early October.

He said investigators believe Pieper killed her at her parents’ house on November 19, and her body was ‘dumped, frankly, like garbage’ in the park.

Watson’s body was found at 10.30am in the park, where the search had focused since she disappeared on November 19.

Watson’s family has been notified and will identify the remains. An autopsy is planned for tomorrow morning.

Watson, 20, disappeared a day after returning home to Clay for Thanksgiving break.

Undersheriff Warren Darby said on Friday that more than 100 people were searching for her.

He said the search expanded from 600 acres to 1,200 acres. Watson was a junior dance major at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa.

Her parents had told investigators it was ‘uncharacteristic’ for the pretty college student to go off on her own without telling anybody.

Miss Watson’s murder has stunned the entire community of Liverpool, which had thrown itself into finding her.
