Boston University is in mourning after three undergraduates studying in New Zealand died in a car crash and at least five others were injured, with one airlifted to a hospital in critical condition.

The students were part of a group of 26 traveling by minivan to Tongariro Crossing, a popular hiking site in the north of the country. The students had organized the trip themselves and privately rented minivans, hoping to see where the “Lord of the Rings” movies were filmed. No BU staffers were traveling with them, said Bernd Widdig, executive director of BU’s study abroad programs.

Sixteen of the students were traveling in two vans, one behind the other; a third van was ahead and those aboard did not see the crash. According to New Zealand police, around 7:30 a.m. New Zealand time — 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Friday — the second van apparently veered left off a paved road onto gravel, then rolled over in the other direction after the driver appeared to overcorrect. Students in the first van saw the accident and stopped.

Police continue to investigate the cause of the accident.

The Globe reported Friday night that the two vans had only 14 seats between them, although 16 students were traveling on them. Officials in New Zealand said that because some students were thrown from the vehicle, at least some were likely not wearing seat belts.

The student driving the wrecked van was among the injured, according to Widdig. “It’s horrible,” he said.

Another van, with the remaining 10 students, was traveling well ahead of the two-vehicle convoy. Its passengers did not know about the accident and continued with the hike, only finding out what happened afterward.

A candlight vigil will be held on campus at 8 p.m. Saturday to remember the victims.

“This is a horrible tragedy,” said BU President Robert Brown in a statement. “Our prayers go out the students and their families. We will do all we can to provide comfort and assistance to those who have been injured, and to the families and friends of the victims. The university is mobilizing all of our resources to help our students and families deal with this tragedy.”

BU identified the deceased students as junior Daniela Lekhno; Roch Jauberty, a 21-year-old sophomore from California; and Austin Brashears, a 21-year-old junior, also from California.

Brashears, an environmental engineering major, had wanted to study in New Zealand because of the country’s focus on environmental conservation, said his mother, Julie Brashears. On weekends, she said, he planned excursions for his fellow students.

“Everyone called him the cruise director,” said Brashears, who lives in Huntington Beach, Calif., where Austin grew up. “He wanted to include everybody on the trips. He loved having an eclectic group of friends.”

Austin posted new photos on his Facebook profile several times a week, she said, documenting the excursions he checked off the list of adventures he wanted to complete while in the country. He went Zorb riding – rolling down a hill inside a clear inflatable ball — and on his birthday in April, he bungee-jumped off the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

This weekend’s trip, Julie Brashears said, was the last thing on his checklist. She spoke with him a few days before he left for the trip, and he reflected on his study abroad experience.

“He told us it was the best time he ever had in his life,” Brashears said.

Margaret Theriault, a 21-year-old junior in the school of management, was in critical condition after the accident and was airlifted to a 200-bed hospital in the town of Rotorua. No further details on her condition were available Saturday morning.

Several other students were also being treated for less serious injuries. BU identified those students as junior Dustin Holstein, junior Stephen Houseman, junior Alys McAlpine, freshman Emily Melton, and senior Kathy Moldawer.

Two of them, with serious but not critical injuries, were airlifted to a hospital for treatment and were in stable condition, according to the New Zealand Herald. Another two – a man and a woman, both 21, with minor injuries — were treated at a different hospital in Taupo, a vacation town in the center of the North Island, very near the crash site. Those two students have since been released.

BU has been beset by tragedies all semester, including two high-profile sexual assault arrests and a fire that left an undergraduate badly injured. Most recently, on April 19, an Indian graduate student was fatally shot on an Allston street in an apparently random act of violence.

“They’ve all been hard, but this is like a ton of bricks,” said Stephen Burgay, the university’s vice president for marketing and communications. “Three kids.”

Top BU officials met shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday morning to discuss how to support their students, both abroad and on campus.

“The meeting is with all the deans. The students came from different schools here, so we’re grappling with this tragedy and making sure we have set up everything here on campus,” said Widdig. “Certainly there will be a memorial service. Graduation is less than two weeks away. The university will certainly mark this. Right now, the discussion is: How do we do it properly?”

All but one of the 26 students on the hiking trip were enrolled in a program based at the University of Auckland. They are currently on their way back to Auckland, where they will have counseling sessions led by that university’s staff beginning Saturday night.

The program has 49 students total, all of them undergraduates and most juniors. It began Jan. 3 and ends June 26.

The students have been offered the option to cut short their studies and come home.

“We will give them counseling right away and ascertain their psychological status,” Widdig said.

Most other BU students on study abroad programs already have returned or are in transit, said Widdig. The Auckland program is unusually long because it is scheduled to match the University of Auckland’s academic calendar rather than BU’s.

All the families of the deceased and injured students have been contacted by BU, and at least one family is on its way to New Zealand.

Three BU staffers are on site in Auckland, and a fourth is flying in from a sister program in Sydney to provide extra support.

Theriault, the seriously injured student, was from the Sydney program, and BU will arrange for her to have counseling there if she returns to the city, said Widdig. The Sydney program is larger than the Auckland one, although over 100 students have already left, with 15 students remaining alongside a staff of six.

At least two other BU students have died abroad in recent years, though not while they were on official BU programs.

Mamie Hyatt, a Fulbright Scholar studying toward a Ph.D. in Sweden, passed away last year after an apparent heart attack.

Meghan Sennott, a junior, died on commencement day in 2006 in a bus accident in Peru, having just finished a BU tropical ecology program in Ecuador. Thirteen other people died in that crash and 40 were injured.

Counseling will be available to students on BU’s home campus. A candlelight vigil is scheduled on the plaza or near the campus chapel for 8 p.m. Saturday.

“Come to Marsh Plaza with a candle or a flashlight at 8pm to support these 8 members of our BU community,” the website reads. Several top administrators will attend.

On Saturday morning, the chapel was empty except for one young woman sitting in a pew crying.

Another BU student, Chelsea Trim, a rising sophomore from Worcester, said she had been unable to sleep after hearing Friday night that unnamed students had been involved in a crash.

Given a list of names Saturday morning, she said she recognized one among the injured: Houseman, who is captain of BU’s Quidditch team.

“It’s such a horrible end to the year, especially with everything else going on,” Trim said, referring to the litany of bad news BU has faced all semester. She added that she was worried about how BU students would cope with the deaths, given that most are scheduled to leave the campus and its support systems after commencement.

News of the crash did not seem to have spread widely around campus by Saturday morning. Many students had left already for the summer or were busy moving out.

Twitter, which has been a hive of student discussion during the previous BU tragedies, was largely silent except for a few poignant notes of sorrow.

Thomas Imbalzano, a student in the BU school of management who is currently in Sydney, posted a Facebook update after the crash – but before the victims were identified — pleading for two friends to signal their whereabouts.

“Roch Jauberty Andrew Todtenkopf prayin for you guys please message me or update your status asap,” it read. One of students, Jauberty, was among the deceased.

A friend of Austin Brashears mourned him on Twitter: “You were a great Boy Scout.”

Daniela Lekhno’s most recent Twitter posting – from January, at the beginning of the study abroad program — showed excitement about the program.

Actor George Lindsey Dies 83

May 7, 2012, 12:21 p.m.

George Lindsey, the Southern-born character actor who played dim hayseed Goober Pyle, the genial gas station auto mechanic on “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Mayberry R.F.D.,” died early Sunday morning. He was 83.

Lindsey, who later was a regular on the long-running country music comedy show “Hee Haw,” died at a healthcare center in Nashville after a brief illness, said his manager and booking agent, Carrie Moore-Reed.

“George Lindsey was my friend,” Andy Griffith said in a statement. “I had great respect for his talent and his human spirit.”

Noting that he had his last conversation with Lindsey a few days ago, Griffith said: “I am happy to say that as we found ourselves in our 80s, we were not afraid to say, ‘I love you.’ That was the last thing George and I had to say to each other. ‘I love you.’ ”

“The Andy Griffith Show,” the classic 1960s situation comedy starring Griffith as the kindly sheriff of Mayberry, N.C., was in its fourth season in 1964 when Lindsey first appeared as the cousin of naive gas station attendant Gomer Pyle, played by Jim Nabors.

Lindsey’s character became more prominent after Nabors left the show to star in the spin-off series “Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.” in 1964.

As Goober, Lindsey wore a brown felt beanie with turned-up scalloped edges and had a tire gauge, pens and pencils stuffed into the pocket of his work shirt and a rag hanging out of the back pocket of his high-wasted pants.

“I had a lot of trouble with that part,” he said in a 2005 interview with Alabama’s Montgomery Advertiser newspaper. “I’d been playing a lot of heavy character roles. I’d done them on ‘Alfred Hitchcock,’ and ‘Twilight Zone’ and some others, and at first I found myself just doing an impersonation of Jim Nabors doing Gomer. I finally said, ‘Look, tell me about this guy and who he is.’ ”

Lindsey often recalled that Griffith told him, “Goober’s the kind of guy that would go into a restaurant and say, ‘This is great salt.’ ”

“Andy Griffith turned out to be the greatest teacher I’ve ever had,” Lindsey, an Alabama native, told The Times in 1968. “He kept tellin’ me to play myself, to let it happen to me, instead of trying to be funny.”

Over the years, fans of the show often would ask Lindsey to repeat a line he said during his first appearance on the series: a scene in Sheriff Andy Taylor’s office in which Gomer asks Goober to do his “take-off on Cary Grant” for Andy.

The bashful Goober quickly gives in and delivers a humorously terrible: “Judy, Judy, Judy, Judy, Judy.”

“Couldn’t you just swear Cary Grant was right here in this room?” an impressed Gomer says.

“Yeah, that was good, Goober,” says Andy.

One of Lindsey’s favorite episodes was the one in which, as a practical joke, young Ron Howard‘s Opie and a friend hide a miniature walkie-talkie under the collar of the stray dog Goober has adopted.

“Goober thought he had a talking dog,” Lindsey said in a 1985 Associated Press interview. “It revealed Goober’s childlike qualities; it made you laugh and cry.”

Lindsey believed “The Andy Griffith Show,” which earned Don Knotts five Emmy Awards as Deputy Barney Fife, was popular because “it was honest and simple.”

“At that time, we were the best acting ensemble on TV,” he said. “The scripts were terrific.”

After Griffith left the high-rated CBS series in 1968, Lindsey continued to play Goober on the sequel series, “Mayberry R.F.D.,” starring Ken Berry. It was canceled in 1971.

An only child in a poor family, he was born in Fairfield, Ala., on Dec. 17, 1928, and grew up in Jasper, Ala. He majored in biological science and physical education at what is now the University of North Alabama.

After graduating in 1952, he spent four years in the Air Force and another year as a history teacher and head basketball coach at Hazel Green High School in Alabama before moving to New York City, where he studied acting on the GI Bill at the American Theatre Wing.

One of his first jobs on TV was as one of the liars on the quiz panel show “To Tell the Truth.” He did a stand-up comedy act to make ends meet and later played opposite Ray Bolger in the 1962 Broadway musical comedy “All American.”

After landing in Hollywood that same year, Lindsey actually auditioned for the role of Gomer Pyle — and, he later said, was told he had the part — before it went to Nabors, a fellow Alabama native.

Lindsey’s later credits included providing voices for characters in the Disney animated features “The Aristocats,” “The Rescuers” and “Robin Hood.” He also had a long run on the syndicated “Hee Haw.”

“I really don’t do Goober on ‘Hee Haw.’ I do George Lindsey,” he told the Associated Press in 1982. “Maybe I don’t know where George Lindsey stops and Goober begins. If you’re in a series, as I was for seven and a half years, you draw on every personal experience for that character.”

Although he once resented being typecast as Goober, Lindsey learned to embrace the role that brought him fame and provided the title for the 1995 book “Goober in a Nutshell,” which he wrote with Ken Beck and Jim Clark.

As Lindsey said in the 1985 AP interview, “Goober is Everyman. Everyone finds something to like about ol’ Goober.”

Lindsey, who was divorced, is survived by his son, George Lindsey Jr.; his daughter, Camden Jo Lindsey Gardner; two grandsons; and his longtime companion, Anne Wilson.

Adam Yauch

4 May 2012        13:33 ET

Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch has died at the age of 47, Rolling Stone Magazine has reported.

The star was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 but it is not clear whether his death was connected with the illness.

Yauch had surgery and radiation therapy but said last year “reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated”.

Under the alias MCA, he joined the group co-founded by Mike D, Mix Master Mike, and Ad Roc in 1981. They went on to sell more than 40 million albums worldwide.

The band started out as a hardcore punk outfit called The Young Aborigines in 1979 but switched to hip hop in 1984.

Two years later they launched their critically-acclaimed debut album Licensed To Ill, which spawned the hit singles (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party) and No Sleep Till Brooklyn.

The Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month, but Rolling Stone reported Yauch would not be able to attend.

They printed a statement from a representative of the band which read: “Beastie Boys regret that Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch will be unable to join Mike ‘Mike D’ Diamond and Adam ‘Adrock’ Horovitz at the band’s induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in April.

“Mike, Adam and Adam are truly grateful for the honour but with only two of the three Beastie Boys attending, they will unfortunately not be able to perform at the ceremony.”

12:30 PM EDT        Tuesday May 1, 2012

The 6-month-old girl whose parents created a “bucket list” blog for their daughter after doctors said she would not live past age 2 died Monday, her father said.

Avery Lynn Canahuati, who was born in November with spinal muscular atrophy type 1, died of pulmonary complications related to the genetic disorder, Mike Canahuati said on the blog Tuesday.

“In short, one of her lungs collapsed and she went into cardiac arrest,” said Canahuati, 31, of Bellaire, Texas. “I immediately performed CPR on her and was able to bring her back to life, but only for a brief period of time before she passed away shortly after arriving at the hospital.

“Avery’s passing this quickly came as a complete shock to all of us, as she had just been given a thumbs up at her last doctors appointment only three days ago,” her father wrote Tuesday. “While we were aware of the severity of her diagnosis, we never lost hope for Avery and even in her passing, we still have hope for our daughter and all of her friends.”

The infant’s parents had written the blog as though Avery would make it past age 2 and experience life’s milestones as a healthy girl.

Canahuati wrote Monday that there were two items he could now scratch off Avery’s “bucket list”:

1. Not let SMA take my smile away.

2. Take one last breath, then take one more before I go to live with my Uncle Bryant, Nana Carolyn, Papa George and all my great-grandparents.

He published the last photo the parents took of Avery, which he said showed her “sitting on her mommy’s lap looking at me and all it took to get her to smile this big was for me to keep saying ‘Hi.’ ”

The blog began as an efficient way to keep family and close friends in touch about their baby’s health. But when the father came upon the idea of writing a “bucket list” for his Avery — a list of things to do before death, normally drafted for adults — his blog went viral and now has 2.4 million page views.

The “bucket list” is so sensitively penned that many of his readers are convinced that it’s mom, not dad, typing the entries, he said.

“A lot of people, when they post on there, they say, ‘you and your husband.’ They obviously assume Laura is writing it,” he said.

The bucket list’s entries are lighthearted, humorous and decidedly hopeful, though Avery had the worst order of an incurable disease caused by a genetic defect that attacks the muscles, especially the respiratory system. Only type 0 is worse, but that usually occurs with fetuses, the couple said.

One in 6,000 babies is born with one of four types of SMA, according to the Canahuatis, whose daughter was diagnosed on Good Friday. One in 40 people is a carrier of the gene, and the Canahuatis had a one in 1,600 chance of both being carriers — which they believe they are, the couple said.

Writing in the first person as if his daughter were the author, Canahuati created new bucket list entries during the week on the family’s averycan.blogspot.com website or their “Avery’s Bucket List” Facebook page. They included:

1. Wake up smiling.

2. Have a bad hair day.

3. Ride in an ambulance.

4. Get picked up by a fireman.

5. Meet a fan.

6. Talk to mommy & daddy.

7. Eat a cupcake & a Blow Pop.

8. Play with Play-Dough.

9. Play a practical joke on someone.

Tragedy: Alexander Dale Oen with his gold medal after winning the men's 100m breaststroke at the World Championships in Shanghai

07:36 EST         1 May 2012

Norway’s world 100m breaststroke champion Alexander Dale Oen has tragically died.

Dale Oen, who was 26, was in Arizona at a training camp where he had a cardiac arrest in the bathroom.

The Norwegian team is holding the camp in Flagstaff ahead of the Olympics, and the federation said Dale Oen had only take part in a light training session on Monday, as well as playing some golf that day.

But team-mates became worried when the swimmer spent an unusually long time in the shower, and entered his bathroom when he failed to respond to their knocks on the door.

He was taken to the Flagstaff Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Dale Oen won the 100m breaststroke at the World Championships in Shanghai last July, three years after claiming Olympic silver in Beijing.

He was one of Norway’s top hopes for success at this summer’s Olympic Games in London.

2008: March – Posts European record time of 59.76 seconds as he takes 100m breaststroke gold at the European Championships in Eindhoven.

2012: April 30 – Dies of a suspected cardiac arrest at a training camp in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Per Rune Eknes, the president of the Norwegian Swimming Federation, said: ‘This is just awful, especially for the family and close friends, and also the sport of swimming.’

Norway Coach Petter Loevberg added: ‘We’re all in shock. This is an out-of-the-body experience for the whole team over here. Our thoughts primarily go to his family who have lost Alexander way too early.

‘Our thoughts go out to his family who have lost Alexander too early. Words cannot describe the grief they must feel.

‘For us here in Flagstaff it is important now that we stand together and take care of each other. It is an unreal situation and we have some tough days ahead.’

Dale Oen’s triumph in Shanghai came just three days after the massacre in Norway by right-wing extremist Anders Breivik that killed 77 people.

Dale Oen dedicated the win to the victims of that massacre, pointing to the Norwegian flag on his cap after the finish to send a message to his countrymen back home.

Sad loss: Dale Oen was a popular figure in his homelandSad loss: Dale Oen was a popular figure in his homeland

‘We need to stay united,’ he said after the race. ‘Everyone back home now is of course paralysed with what happened but it was important for me to symbolise that even though I’m here in China, I’m able to feel the same emotions.’

The federation said they found Dale Oen ‘laying partly on the floor, partly on the edge of his bathtub.’

Team doctor Ola Roensen said he immediately began performing CPR until an ambulance arrived.

Roensen said: ‘Everything was done according to procedure, and we tried everything, so it is immensely sad that we were not able to resuscitate him. It is hard to accept.’

Charles Colson

April 21, 2012, 2:06 p.m.

Watergate felon and prison reformer Charles W. Colson, who died Saturday at age 80 in northern Virginia, was two people.

He was Richard Nixon‘s “hatchet man,” the president’s “evil genius,” who by his own admission was “ruthless in getting things done” in the Watergate years, when the things that he and others in the White House were getting done would become a national disgrace and send Colson to prison.

And he was a born-again Christian, the founder of the world’s largest prison ministry, an “unfailingly kind but tremendously courageous” intellectual leader who became the “William F. Buckley” of the evangelical movement.

Colson died from complications resulting from a brain hemorrhage at Fairfax Inova Hospital, a spokesman for his ministry said. He had undergone surgery three weeks ago to remove a pool of clotted blood on his brain.

“He had this reputation as being this ruthless guy. Even Richard Nixon thought he was ruthless,” said Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, who compared Colson to Buckley. “That is so different than the Chuck Colson I knew. He was the least ego-driven and one of the most friendly, kind people I’ve ever known.”

The fact that Colson was “born again” into evangelical Christianity as he was about to be charged in the Watergate scandal caused much snickering in the press. But Colson’s conversion proved genuine and lasting. After serving seven months, mostly at the Maxwell Correctional Facility in Alabama, he founded Prison Fellowship Ministries, which says it operates in 1,367 prisons in the U.S. and has more than 200,000 inmates participating in its programs.

Colson turned PFM into a respected conglomerate of organizations and programs dedicated to serving prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families and encouraging them to embrace Jesus Christ. And as his organization grew, so did his fame with evangelicals. His daily four-minute BreakPoint radio commentary was carried by 1,300 stations.

But, unlike the Pat Robertsons or Jerry Falwells of the evangelical movement, Colson never sought the limelight. “I haven’t sought publicity in the Christian world,” he told The Times in 1987. “I’ve stayed out of religious politics. Falwell is in the middle of it. Jim and Tammy Bakker, Pat Robertson…. I’ve stayed away. It hasn’t been my calling.”

And unlike some others in his world, he apparently never amassed great personal wealth from his work. He took an annual salary of $113,000 from his prison groups and donated all royalties from his 30 books, substantial speaking fees, and the $1 million Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion he was awarded in London in 1993 to his prison fellowship.

But whether Colson will be known more for his good works or his bad may depend on which audience is remembering.

For the survivors of the Watergate era, Colson was one of the central figures in the scandals generally grouped together under the rubric of Watergate. Appointed special counsel to the Republican president in 1969, he was the author of the infamous Nixon Enemies List. He was a central figure behind the 1971 burglary of Daniel Ellsberg‘s psychiatrists’ office, a vicious attempt to discredit the source of the “Pentagon Papers” Vietnam War documents.

John Dean, Nixon’s White House counsel and later nemesis, said in an interview that Colson was “the catalyst” for the more famous break-in at Democratic Party headquarters at the Watergate complex in Washington. Dean said Colson pressured the president’s reelection committee to approve the “intelligence activities” of G. Gordon Liddy and Howard Hunt, leaders of the so-called White House plumbers.

Dean, who himself became Colson’s target when Dean started to cooperate with Watergate prosecutors, said that Colson’s ruthlessness may have been overstated.

“He was extremely aggressive in trying to get Nixon’s policies and programs passed, as well as for his politics to succeed,” Dean said. “He was very bright, very able, and fairly expedient. He didn’t have strong moral qualms about what he was doing.”

Dean said though Colson “tried to destroy me,” the two “buried the hatchet” while they were both being held at Fort Holabird in Baltimore. “Chuck apologized for it and said he was sorry, that he put out a lot of false information and regretted doing it.”

Dean said that the two were friendly for a number of years, until Colson despaired of converting him to his evangelical beliefs.

Less charitable to Colson is Ellsberg. Though Colson was charged in both with the Watergate and the Ellsberg burglaries, he was allowed to plead guilty only to obstruction of justice in the Ellsberg matter.

Ellsberg, who like Colson had been a young officer in the Marines, said in an interview that Colson was also behind a failed plot to have him beaten up during an anti-war demonstration at the Capitol by a dozen Cubans brought to Washington by Hunt and Liddy.

Ellsberg said that Colson always denied involvement in that plot, despite testimony from others to the contrary and, while he admitted doing many bad things during Watergate, he failed to adequately own up to the specifics of what he had done.

“In short, I think Colson had a lot he could have told. His ‘born again’ experience didn’t entirely take when it came to coming clean,” Ellsberg said.

Colson was born Oct. 16, 1931, outside Boston, the grandson of Swedish and English immigrants. He graduated from Brown University and, after serving from 1953 to 1955 in the Marines where he became its youngest ever company commander, went to work for Sen. Leveret Saltonstall (R-Mass.) while going to law school at George Washington University at night.

After starting his own, successful law firm in Washington in the 1960s, he was appointed special counsel to Nixon in 1969.

After he got out of prison in 1975 he published his first book, the memoir “Born Again,” a bestseller that was made into a movie.

In his later years he lived in Naples, Fla., with his second wife, Patricia Ann Hughes, who survives him. They also maintained an apartment outside Washington. He is also survived by three children, from his first marriage to Nancy Billings, and five grandchildren.

Though always conservative, except when he was advocating for fewer prisons and for the release of nonviolent prisoners, he was not very active politically on the national stage after his White House years. But he told the New York Times two years ago that, though he had had high hopes for President Obama, he had become “totally disillusioned” with the president. “I think he has turned out to be an ideologue,” he said.

Though Colson will have a split legacy, for evangelicals he will be remembered as a hero.

“If there were an evangelical Mt. Rushmore, Chuck would be on it,” Land said.

5:44 PM EDT        Wednesday April 18, 2012

Broadcast icon Dick Clark, the creator and longtime host of “American Bandstand,” has died, publicist Paul Shefrin said. He was 82.

Clark suffered a heart attack while at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica for an outpatient procedure, his publicist said. “Attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful.”

Clark suffered what was then described as “a mild stroke” in December 2004, just months after announcing he had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

That stroke forced Clark to cut back on his on-camera work, including giving up the hosting duties for the “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” specials. He returned as a co-host with Ryan Seacrest on December 31, 2005.

Clark anguished each year over whether to continue appearing on the annual show because of limitations on his speech from the stroke, U.S. Rep. David Drier, a longtime friend, told CNN Wednesday.

“But then he would get deluged by people who were stroke victims and other people who had infirmities and they were such admirers of his fighting spirit,” said Drier, R-California.

Clark appeared on the last show for New Year’s Eve 2011.

“He loved it, but at the same time he knew that his continued diligence was providing inspiration to a lot of people who were going through difficulties, facing infirmities themselves,” Drier said.

Seacrest gave a statement to CNN Wednesday expressing deep sadness for “the loss of my dear friend Dick Clark.”

“He has truly been one of the greatest influences in my life,” Seacrest said. “I idolized him from the start, and I was graced early on in my career with his generous advice and counsel. When I joined his show in 2006, it was a dream come true to work with him every New Year’s Eve for the last 6 years.”

Seacrest called Clark “smart, charming, funny and always a true gentleman.”

“I learned a great deal from him, and I’ll always be indebted to him for his faith and support of me,” he said. “He was a remarkable host and businessman and left a rich legacy to television audiences around the world. We will all miss him.”

His “American Bandstand” work, which he began as a local TV show in Philadelphia in 1956, earned him the nickname “America’s oldest living teenager.” The show was picked up by ABC and broadcast nationally a year later.

“Only God is responsible for making more stars than Dick Clark,” said singer Tony Orlando, who was 16 when he first appeared on Clark’s show in 1961.

“You had to go through the world and universe of Dick Clark in order to part of the record business,” Orlando said.

Born Richard Wagstaff Clark in Mount Vernon, New York, on November 30, 1929, he began his broadcast career working at a radio station managed by his father.

Clark, who was married three times, is survived by his wife, Kari, two sons and a daughter.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Clark in its nonperformer category in 1993.

Clark also hosted numerous other television favorites including “$25,000 Pyramid” and “TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes.”

“This guy was the best,” said singer Freddy Cannon, who appeared on “American Bandstand” 110 times. “He helped me from the very bottom of my career all through the ’80s and the ’90s, and he’s going to be missed a lot.”

Clark’s passing follows by less than three months the death of another TV dance show icon, Don Cornelius, the creator of “Soul Train.” Cornelius was found dead of what authorities said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Los Angeles on February 1. He was 75.

Olympic gold medal diver Lenzi dies, 43

April 10th, 2012        07:29 AM ET

Olympic gold medal diver Mark Lenzi, 43,  died Monday in a Greenville, North Carolina, hospital.

Lenzi won the gold medal in the three-meter springboard competition at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 and returned from retirement to earn bronze in the same event at the 1996 Atlanta Games.

He was also the first diver to score 100 points for a single dive, according to his alma mater, Indiana University, which announced his death on its website Monday.

No cause of death was announced, but the Free Lance-Star in Fredricksburg, Virginia, where Lenzi once lived, said he had been hospitalized in critical condition with fainting spells and low blood pressure. His mother said he had a heart ailment, according to the report.

His brother, Billy, told the Free Lance-Star on Monday that Lenzi had internal bleeding that doctors couldn’t stop.

Lenzi is the last American to win an Olympic gold medal in diving.

“It’s going to be a long time before we have another,” his former coach, Hobie Billingsley, told the Free Lance-Star.

Billingsley said Lenzi was a pressure performer.

“He didn’t show a thing in practice, but when the lights came on, he was unbelievable. The tougher the competition,  the better he would dive,” Billingsley is quoted as saying.

Lenzi was diving coach for the men’s and women’s teams at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, from 2009 to 2011, according to the Indiana University news release. He had earlier been an assistant coach at Indiana.

Lenzi is survived by his wife, according to his obituary.

Relatives say a day care operator and her parents are the victims in a fatal shooting at her Minnesota home.

James Bolden says police told him that his sister, DeLois Brown, and his parents James and Clover Bolden were killed in the attack Monday morning. It happened in Brooklyn Park, a suburb northwest of Minneapolis.

No arrests have been made.

Police say the bodies were discovered by a mother who had just dropped off her toddler and then returned to the day care after seeing a suspicious person hanging around. Her child was OK and no one else was hurt in the attack.

Ron Brown, DeLois Brown’s brother-in-law, says DeLois had just moved her parents to Minnesota from the St. Louis area so she could take care of them.

A man accused of stabbing his on-again, off-again girlfriend, suffocating her and dismembering her body told a newspaper that she begged him to kill her after he confronted her about text messages she’d sent saying she wanted him dead.

In the jailhouse interview with the Dayton Daily News, a choked-up Matthew Puccio also said Jessica Sacco told him she still loves him, said she’s sorry and asked for a last kiss before allowing him to suffocate her in the duplex apartment they shared in Urbana, in western Ohio. He told the newspaper he plans to plead guilty and deserves the death penalty.

Remains of Sacco, 21, were found in their bathtub on March 30, eight days after authorities believe she died.

Puccio is charged in Champaign County court with murder and other crimes. Four other people, including a couple from Fenton, Mich., who were staying at the apartment, are accused of helping him cover up the killing. Police have said parts of her body were found in southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky, about 70 to 85 miles away.

In a portion of the interview aired on WHIO-TV, Puccio paused often to compose himself as he described an ordeal that started about three days after a mutual friend sent him text messages in which Sacco asks for one good reason why he should live and why she should stay with him.

“It went on to say how she was going to invite one of her friends over to cut my heart out of my chest and leave me for dead,” he said, wearing orange-and white striped jailhouse garb, his hands cuffed, at the Tri-County Regional Jail in Mechanicsburg.

He said she “started freaking out” and eventually stabbed herself with a folding pocket knife.

“She was pleading with me to slash her throat, slash her wrists, do something, and I told her, `No I can’t do that to you.’ And she told me to stab her then, so I just held my hand above her stomach, she grabbed my wrist and pulled it into her stomach, and I pulled out the knife and wrapped her stomach and tried to stop the bleeding as much as I could,” he said.

The couple living next to Sacco and Puccio in the duplex isn’t buying his explanation.

Aaron Gall, 25, told The Associated Press that he believes Puccio is “just trying to get people to feel sorry for him,” and that Sacco wouldn’t have wanted to die.

“She loved life. She was so vibrant before he started living there,” he said.

“She went from being this vibrant girl, to basically angry all the time and highly upset. It’s like the devil moved in with her and pulled out all the lights.”

Gall said he and his fiance, Kristin Shultz, 22, also discount a theory they saw in a television report that Puccio acted in self-defense after finding out Sacco wanted him dead.

“We looked at each other and said: `He’s lying. He’s lying through his teeth,'” Gall said.

He called Puccio “rude and off-putting” and said he argued with Sacco almost daily after Christmas. He never heard it turn physical.

“The walls were paper thin,” he said. “We heard verbal arguments on the other side of the wall all the time.”

Puccio said he and Sacco, who had lived in California in recent years, had been together for about a year and a half. He said the relationship had started going sour about two months ago when she started dealing with witchcraft and he didn’t want any part of it but had nowhere else to live.

He said the plastic bag he used to kill her came into the picture about six to seven hours after she was stabbed and after he held her for a while. He said she eventually asked him to “just let her die already.”

“She started crying and told me `I wish I didn’t have to die, but I understand what I did,'” he said.

Champaign County Coroner Joshua Richards has said Sacco’s autopsy revealed that the woman’s single stab wound did not hit any vital organs and probably caused little bleeding. He said she died of suffocation.

A jail administrator said Puccio has declined further interview requests. A telephone message seeking comment was left Thursday for his attorney.

Shultz, the neighbor, had seen Sacco the day before she was killed.

“It was the first time she had said hi to me in the longest time,” she said. “She actually looked a little happy. I think she told him to get out. She had some relief on her shoulders. It looked like she was getting her old self back.”

She and Gall now plan to move.

“It’s just too hard to think of everything,” Shultz said. “We just can’t be in that house.”

Mike Wallace dies

April 9, 2012

Mike Wallace, who pioneered and then dominated the probing and enduringly popular hallmark TV magazine series “60 Minutes,” died Saturday night, CBS announced. He was 93.

Wallace, who had triple heart bypass surgery in early 2008, died in New Haven, Conn., his colleague Bob Schieffer said Sunday morning on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Known for his often caustic questioning of sometimes reluctant guests on television’s premier newsmagazine show, Wallace became the first CBS network correspondent to work beyond 65 in a medium dominated by young faces.

The veteran broadcaster was already 50 when “60 Minutes” debuted in 1968. He stayed with the newsmagazine for 38 years, stepping down as a full-time correspondent in 2006. He made occasional appearances after that. His final interview, which aired in January 2008, was with baseball pitcher Roger Clemens.

“Let’s face it,” Wallace, who had a pacemaker and two hearing aids, told People magazine in 2006. “I’m not 85 anymore.”

As the self-described “black hat” of “60 Minutes,” he circled the globe, displaying his charm and wit and asking sometimes barbed, always penetrating questions of kings and presidents, business magnates and bureaucrats.

Of the roughly 800 pieces he did for the show, two stood out the most for him, Wallace told the Associated Press in 2006.

One showed his tender side as Wallace persuaded piano virtuoso Vladimir Horowitz to pound out “Stars and Stripes Forever” in 1977. The other, in 1979, showed Wallace’s tough side as he became the first Western reporter to interview Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini after 53 American hostages were taken in Tehran. To his face, Wallace quoted Egyptian President Anwar Sadat as calling Khomeini a lunatic.

“I figured what was he going to do, take me as a hostage?” Wallace said in the AP story. “The translator looked at me as if I were a lunatic.”

When he interviewed Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan in 2000, Wallace set an incendiary tone: “You don’t trust the media; you’ve said so. You don’t trust whites; you’ve said so. You don’t trust Jews; you’ve said so. Well, here I am.”

“So what?” Farrakhan responded.

Wallace so specialized in the hard-hitting search for skulduggery that beer magnate Joseph Coors once quipped: “The four most frightening words in the English language are ‘Mike Wallace is here.’ ”

The comment was adapted into a “60 Minutes” ad, and Wallace displayed a framed copy in his office.

Barbara Walters, a formidable interviewer and a competitor at ABC, offered a telling compliment on the 1997 special “Mike Wallace Remembers”: “The best interviewer in all of television — past, present and probably future — is Mike Wallace.”

“60 Minutes” creator Don Hewitt — who died in August — told People magazine in 2006: “If they were allowed to put plaques up at CBS for the three journalists who would stand out, they would be Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite and Mike Wallace.”

Jeff Fager, the show’s current executive producer, told the Los Angeles Times in 2006, “I don’t think there would be a ’60 Minutes’ if Don hadn’t found Mike. Mike was never afraid to say what he thought.”

Wallace’s unapologetic style made for splashy, often emotional interviews — and the occasional dust-up.

The controversy that most affected Wallace grew out of a 1982 “CBS Reports” documentary he narrated on the Vietnam War. The report stated that Gen. William Westmoreland had inflated enemy casualty figures to maintain support for the unpopular war. Westmoreland sued CBS and Wallace for $120 million but dropped the suit months into the trial.

“The Westmoreland affair, professionally and personally, was one of the most difficult times of my life,” Wallace told the Chicago Tribune in 1989. “It was just devastatingly difficult because my integrity was put to question, and as a reporter, that’s the single most important thing you’ve got.”

The 1984 trial triggered Wallace’s first bout of clinical depression, and he tried to kill himself by swallowing sleeping pills. He publicly admitted to the suicide attempt during the “60 Minutes” tribute to him in 2006.

“I wrote a note. And Mary found it,” he said, referring to Mary Yates, a longtime friend who would become his fourth wife. “And she found the pills that I was taking on the floor. I was asleep.”

With the support of Yates, Wallace got the help he needed to treat his depression. He began seeing a psychiatrist and taking antidepressants, Wallace wrote in his 2005 memoir “Between You and Me.”

He suffered two subsequent bouts of depression when he went off his medication, according to a 2006 Baltimore Sun story. A broken wrist and turning 75 might have contributed to the episodes, he said.

An interest in helping others cope with the illness led Wallace to speak widely about his depression. He became a spokesman for the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression and also appeared in “Dead Blue,” a 1998 documentary about depression directed by his stepson, Eames Yates.

As a journalist, Wallace found himself at the center of another controversy while interviewing a Los Angeles banker in 1981 about lien contracts that could cause poor minorities to lose their homes. Thinking he was off-camera, Wallace made a wisecrack about reading contracts over “watermelon or the tacos” that enraged the black and Latino communities. Wallace publicly apologized, noting he had a reputation for ethnic jokes, including cracks about his own Jewish race.

In 1995, Wallace sparred with CBS executives over the network’s initial refusal to air his report on tobacco whistle-blower Jeffrey Wigand. The episode became the subject of the 1999 film “The Insider,” which alleged that CBS News delayed airing the report because it feared a debilitating lawsuit.

Born Myron Leon Wallace on May 9, 1918, in Brookline, Mass., he was the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Frank and Zina Wallace. His father ran a wholesale grocery business.

At the University of Michigan, Wallace wandered into the school’s broadcast center and found his metier. After graduating in 1939, Wallace got jobs in radio in Grand Rapids, Mich., and Detroit and was a communications officer in the Navy for three years during World War II.

At Chicago’s WGN radio in the 1940s, he got his first opportunity to do one-on-one interviews, the format that was to be his life work and earn him a shelf of Emmys.

He also started a family, marrying college sweetheart Norma Kaphan, who gave him his only children, sons Peter and Christopher. After divorcing in 1948, he wed Buff Cobb, an actress he met while interviewing her on WGN.

The couple moved to New York and CBS where they had an early 1950s radio and television talk show, “Mike and Buff.” The show ended in 1953, two years before the marriage did.

His next marriage, to artist Lorraine Perigord, lasted 28 years.

In 1986, he wed Yates, the widow of his longtime producer Ted Yates, who was killed in 1967 covering the war in the Middle East. She survives him as do his son Chris, stepdaughter Pauline Dora, stepsons Eames and Angus Yates and seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Partly because he was sensitive about childhood acne scars, Wallace had planned to pursue a career in radio but found himself on television in 1949 — as an actor playing a police lieutenant — in the short-lived ABC show “Stand by for Crime.” He also acted on Broadway in the 1954 comedy “Reclining Figure.”

He started doing commercials in the mid-1950s, which later caused news executives to question his credibility as an objective reporter. One of his first contracts was to promote Procter & Gamble’s Golden Fluffo shortening.

In 1955, he landed a TV news anchor job with the Dumont network’s New York affiliate. The next year, Wallace faced his first guest, New York Mayor Robert Wagner on the pioneering interview show “Night Beat.”

The program “was a radical departure from the usual pablum of radio and television interviews,” Wallace wrote in his memoir. It was “nosy, irreverent, often confrontational.”

Critics started calling him “Mike Malice.”

In its second season, the show began airing weekly as “The Mike Wallace Interviews” on ABC.

Wallace faced his first libel suit in 1957 on the ABC program when his guest, mobster Mickey Cohen, “filled the air with an outburst of vicious slander” against then Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker, Wallace wrote in his memoir. Parker settled his $2-million suit for $45,000.

After that, Lloyd’s of London agreed to insure the show only if a lawyer sat across from Wallace during interviews holding cue cards printed “be careful,” “stop” or “retreat.”

Because of friction with ABC executives, Wallace left the network in 1958 and returned to local television in New York and a weekday interview show.

He covered the 1960 presidential race for Westinghouse and did an around-the-world interview series that introduced him to Vietnam.

In 1961, Wallace had a talk show called “PM East” for Westinghouse; actor Burt Lancaster walked off the program. But Wallace was still regularly doing commercials, for Parliament cigarettes and others.

The death of his 19-year-old son, Peter, in a hiking accident in Greece in 1962, made Wallace vow to devote himself solely to serious journalism.

He thought, “Hey, do something that would make Peter proud of you,” Wallace told The Times in 2006.

Peter had hoped to pursue a news career. Wallace’s younger son, Chris, also went into broadcast journalism and is the host of Fox News Sunday.

In 1963, Wallace returned as a correspondent to CBS. He reported from Vietnam and covered the 1968 presidential campaign of Richard Nixon, who asked him to be his White House press secretary.

He turned down Nixon after CBS President Frank Stanton warned that it would ruin him for any future news career.

Instead, Wallace helped found “60 Minutes,” the show that would be his enduring showcase.

The “60 Minutes” clock first ticked on nationwide television Sept. 24, 1968, hosted by Harry Reasoner and Wallace.

The hosts were “the perfect fit — the guy you love and the guy you love to hate,” Hewitt said in the 2006 Times article.

By its third season, the show had moved to Sunday evenings, where it — and Wallace — stayed. By 1978, “60 Minutes” ranked among the top 10 programs in the country, a position it held for 23 seasons.

“When we found our audience, it was the middle of the civil rights revolution, then Vietnam and Watergate, and we simply got behind the scenes to a lot of those stories, whereas the rest of television did not,” Wallace said in 2003 on “Larry King Live.”

Other “60 Minutes” correspondents made names for themselves — including Dan Rather, Morley Safer and Ed Bradley — but Wallace remained “the heart and soul” of the broadcast, Bradley said in the “60 Minutes” tribute. Bradley died months later.

Wallace’s 1975 interview with former Secret Service agent Clint Hill had no equal in terms of “power and poignancy,” Bradley said in the broadcast. Hill had climbed onto John F. Kennedy‘s car in Dallas seconds after the president was shot in 1963.

After Hill said, “It was my fault,” Wallace responded by saying “Ohhh. No one has ever suggested that for an instant.” When Wallace pointed out Hill’s bravery, he replied, “Mike, I don’t care about that. If I had reacted just a little bit quicker. And I could have, I guess. And I’ll live with that to my grave.”

The Hill interview was a favorite, Wallace told Newsday in 2002, as were his conversations withMalcolm X, who said months before his death that he feared that his enemies were plotting his assassination; Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, whom he talked to seven times; and actress Shirley MacLaine, with whom he sparred about reincarnation.

He insisted his interview subjects knew what they were getting into, often describing a “chemistry of confidentiality” that took hold during the process.

On the CBS salute, correspondent Steve Kroft turned the tables on Wallace, pointedly saying that some people considered him a “grandstander” who could be “egotistical, cruel.”

Wallace paused to lick his lips, stammered a little, and said, “Well, I gotta plead guilty, I suppose.”

Thomas Kinkade

April 6, 2012        10:20 pm

California artist Thomas Kinkade, whose paintings of idyllic landscapes, cottages and churches were big sellers for dealers across the country, died Friday, a family spokesman said.

Kinkade, 54, died at his home in Los Gatos in the Bay Area of what appeared to be natural causes, David Satterfield said.

Kinkade’s sentimental paintings — with their scenes of cottages, country gardens and churches in dewy morning light — were beloved by many in middle-class America but generally dismissed by the art establishment. The paintings typically depict tranquil scenes with lush landscaping and streams running nearby. Many contain images from Bible passages.

Kinkade labeled himself the nation’s most collected living artist. His paintings and spin-off products bring in about $100 million a year in sales, and are said to be in 10 million homes in the United States.

He grew up in a trailer in the Northern California city of Placerville, which he often rendered in his art as an idyllic community of friendly citizens. After hitting upon the formula for inspirational landscapes and village scenes, he and his wife put their modest savings into publishing the first reproductions of his paintings in 1984. They sold 1,000 copies for $35 each and never looked back.

“I’m a warrior for light,” he told the San Jose Mercury News in 2002 in reference to his technical skills but also the medieval practice of using light to symbolize the divine. “With whatever talent and resources I have, I’m trying to bring light to penetrate the darkness many people feel.”

Kinkade’s Media Arts Group took in $32 million per quarter from 4,500 dealers across the country 10 years ago, according to the Mercury News. The company has since gone private. The costs of his paintings range from hundreds of dollars to more than $10,000.

“Thom provided a wonderful life for his family,” his wife, Nanette, said in a statement. “We are shocked and saddened by his death.”

March 22, 2012        10:27 a.m.

Sanford, Fla., on Thursday braced for what could be its biggest day of demonstrations over the death of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot by a neighborhood watch officer, George Zimmerman, last month. For those just catching up to the case that has galvanized the nation — raising legal and social issues about race, guns and self-defense — here’s some background.

What do we know?

The first phase of the case happened the night of Feb. 26.

Martin, 17, was walking back to his father’s house in a gated community in Sanford, a suburb of Orlando, Fla. He had bought a package of Skittles and an iced tea from a convenience store in the city of about 53,000 residents. A majority of the city’s residents are white; just under a third are black.

Zimmerman, 28, was patrolling the neighborhood when he saw Martin. He called police to report his suspicions and then followed the teenager, though police recordings quote the dispatcher as saying he should stay away.

Moments later, Zimmerman — identified as a Latino by his family, and as white by critics of the subsequent investigation — was in a confrontation with Martin, ultimately shooting the unarmed teenager once, killing him.

What happened next?

The controversy begins with the second phase — the aftermath of the shooting.

Local police responded to the incident and questioned Zimmerman; authorities did medical tests on the dead teenager but not on Zimmerman.

According to various reports, police say Zimmerman told them he chased Martin but gave up and was returning to his truck when the teenager attacked him. Police say Zimmerman had blood on the back of his head.

Zimmerman, who is claiming self-defense, was released and has not been charged in the shooting.

What is the family’s position?

The family, backed by national and local civil rights leaders, say that Martin was in danger — as is any other African American teenager out alone after dark, they add. Because of his race, Martin immediately appeared suspicious to a white person on patrol, especially one whose training was far less than that received by professional police.

Further, the family insists, if a black officer had shot a white teen, he would have been charged and held  — and drug and alcohol tests would have been carried out on the officer and not just the victim, who in this case was drug-free.

“They are making it look like Zimmerman is the victim,” Benjamin Crump, attorney for Martin’s parents said of the police, according to several media interviews. “And their son is in the grave. It’s about equal justice.”

What is the local police position?

Police insist they investigated and let Zimmerman go because officers were “prohibited from making an arrest based on the facts and circumstances they had at the time,” including the physical evidence.

“The Sanford Police Department has conducted a complete and fair investigation of this incident,”police chief Bill Lee said in a prepared statement.

What happens next is up to prosecutors who have convened a grand jury for April 10.

What is the law regarding self-defense?

Florida is one of 21 states with some form of a stand-your-ground law allows people to legally use deadly force if they fear for their life.

In general, the laws, backed by gun rights advocates, allow a person to stay and fight rather than flee a confrontation. The laws have different requirements, depending on the state. Some specify that the shooter has to have a legal weapon and has to have a right to be where he or she is.

It will be up to the grand jury to determine if Zimmerman’s self-defense claim meets Florida’s legal tests, including whether Zimmerman had reason to fear for his life during the confrontation.

The Florida version of the law, backed with the support of the National Rifle Assn., was passed in 2005.  According to the Associated Press, Florida Department of Law Enforcement statistics show that, before the law was enacted, there were about 13 so-called justified killings each year by citizens from 2000 to 2005. Between 2006 and 2010, the average has risen to 36 justified killings each year.

Some state lawmakers have already begun to question whether the Florida law is too broad, saying they’re considering legislation that would redefine the grounds under which self-defense could be claimed. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, a conservative elected after the law was passed, told reporters this week he’s open to changes if the Martin case shows there are problems.

What is the federal angle?

Martin’s parents and the Rev. Al Sharpton, the civil rights leader and television personality,  have met with federal officials including the U.S. attorney for the area. Federal officials are investigating the incident to see if there was a hate crime that would allow them to prosecute.

March 1, 2012      6:48 am

Conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart passed away unexpectedly from natural causes early Thursday, his website reported.

Breitbart, 43, a star of the tea party movement, died shortly after midnight in Los Angeles, his website said.

The following statement was posted on Breitbart’s website today:

“With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.

“We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.”

Breitbart helped launch the Huffington Post. He has worked for the Drudge Report and wrote several books, including “Hollywood Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon — the Case Against Celebrity.” He launched Breitbart.com in 2005, later adding a series of “subsites,” including BigGovernment.com, to counter what he saw as liberal bias in the media.

Davy Jones, whose charming grin and British accent won the hearts of millions of fans on the 1960s television series “The Monkees,” died Wednesday of an apparent heart attack, according to a law enforcement source in Martin County, Florida. He was 66.

The medical examiner’s office in the district that serves Martin County said it had been notified of Jones’ death.

The diminutive vocalist and actor sang lead on the musical group’s hits such as “Daydream Believer,” “Last Train to Clarksville” and “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You.”

Besides Jones, The Monkees included band members Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith. The pop group was created to star in an NBC sitcom and capitalize on the Beatles’ teenybopper popularity.

In terms of musical popularity, the project succeeded beyond anyone’s expectations, with the group notching a handful of No. 1 songs (including “I’m a Believer,” Billboard’s top song of 1967) and four No. 1 albums.

The group, which was dubbed the “prefab four” by critics, rebelled against its management in an effort to take control of its musical career.

Interestingly, the TV show wasn’t as successful, lasting only two seasons.

Jones, a native of Manchester, England, was already famous in his home country when he joined the Monkees. He had starred in the musical “Oliver!” on the London stage as the Artful Dodger and was nominated for a Tony for his performance on Broadway, according to a biography on a Monkees fan site. Indeed, he got a taste of the Beatles’ popularity when the “Oliver!” cast appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” on February 9, 1964 — the date of the Beatles’ first appearance.

After the Monkees broke up, Jones enjoyed occasional acting roles, including a guest spot on an episode of “The Brady Bunch” and appearances in “SpongeBob SquarePants” and “The Brady Bunch Movie.” When he wasn’t singing — he participated in several Monkees reunions over the years — he was devoted to owning and racing horses.

Jones was married three times. He is survived by his third wife, Jessica Pacheco, and four daughters from his two previous marriages.

He told Britain’s Daily Mail last year that he used to be 5 feet 4 inches tall, “but I’ve lost an inch.”

He posted photographs of his horses, his grandchildren and himself on his blog, “Keep up with Jones,” sometimes also posting messages to fans.

“I wrote some time ago that not everyone has dreams and hopes that come true,” he wrote in a January 2011 message. “Mine have.

“Regrets, yes — if you don’t have them you’re a fool. However, I thank all of you — yeah, you — for your support and love.”

Singer Whitney Houston, who reigned as one of the world’s top pop stars in the 1980s and ’90s but suffered from recurring bouts with drugs and alcohol, was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel room Saturday.

Law enforcement sources told The Times that paramedics arrived at the Beverly Hilton hotel, where Houston was staying, and found her dead. Her cause of death was unknown, said the sources, who asked to remain anonymous because the investigation is ongoing.

Houston, 48, was in the Los Angeles area for a musical tribute for music executive Clive Davis and had performed earlier this week.

Houston was planning to attend Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party Saturday at the Beverly Hilton hotel, the see-and-be-seen event of the year.

Earlier this week, the 79-year-old Davis perused page after page of guest lists in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where he conducts business when he’s in the Los Angeles area. Among those Houston was expected to rub elbows with: Quincy Jones, Tony Bennett, Akon, Cee Lo Green, Miley Cyrus, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Jennifer Hudson, Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello and Diana Krall.

“It’s a great time where everybody can set down their swords, so to speak,” Davis said, seated on an overstuffed divan next to a coffee table cluttered with papers, CDs and videos. “I was grateful that, inviting them to my home, that they would feel comfortable and just keep coming back, and they’ve kept coming back every year to where it’s expanded to be this incredible haven for musicians.”

Houston had drug and alcohol problems for years, and in May her spokeswoman said she was going back to rehab.

Publicist Kristen Foster told the Associated Press on Saturday that Houston had died but did not provide further details.

Houston was kown for such hits as “How Will I Know,” “Saving All My Love for You” and “I Will Always Love You.” She also starred in movies such as “The Bodyguard.”

PHOTO: In this Dec. 12, 2005 file photo, Steve Appleton, CEO and chairman of Micron Technology Inc., looks out through the engine compartment of his stunt jet airplane inside the hanger where he keeps several different types of aircraft  in Boise, Idaho.

February 3rd, 2012

Steven R. Appleton, the chairman and CEO of Micron Technology, Inc., was killed this morning when an experimental plane he was piloting crashed at an airport in Boise, Idaho, the company confirmed.

Appleton, who had been CEO of the semiconductor manufacturer since 2007, was 51.

“Our hearts go out to his wife, Dalynn, his children and his family during this tragic time,” said the company in a statement. “Steve’s passion and energy left an indelible mark on Micron, the Idaho community and the technology industry at large.”

Appleton, an avid pilot, was the only one in the experimental fixed-wing plane when it crashed at the Boise airport, said the Associated Press. The company is headquartered in Boise.

The accident happened just before 9 a.m. MST. The Idaho Statesman said reports came in of a small plane, with one person aboard, on fire before it crashed between two runways.

In a recording of Boise air traffic control provided to ABC News by the website LiveATC.net, a voice believed to be Appleton’s can be heard requesting clearance to turn around after takeoff and return to the airport.

“321LC, I’d like to turn back in…and, uh, land…coming back in, uh, 32,” says the voice.

“November One [unintelligible],” answers the tower. There is shouting in the background.

A few seconds later: “Cherokee one, cancel takeoff clearance, hold short, correction, cancel takeoff clearance.”

Another minute passes while other planes on the ground are told to wait. After some crosstalk a controller says:

“Aircraft calling Boise Tower, stand by, emergency.”

The voices on the recording are mostly low-key, punctuated by long periods during which no microphones are activated. The only voice that clearly sounds stressed is the pilot’s as he says he would like to turn back and land.

The plane was a Lancair single-engine experimental propeller aircraft. The Statesman said Appleton, an avid pilot, had been involved in a crash in an aerobatic plane in the Idaho desert in 2004.

Micron Technology is one of the world’s leading providers of advanced semiconductors. It manufactures and markets a range of memory chips for computers and other electronic devices.

Trading in Micron stock was halted on the Nasdaq after word of the accident. After a rough 2011, the stock had surged 26 percent in 2012, and was up almost 3 percent today before trading stopped. Prices for semiconductors have been dropping, though Micron was regarded as one of the stronger companies in the field. The company’s president, Mark Durcan, said just last month that he planned to retire in August.

February 1, 2012       7:38 am

A family member of  Don Cornelius arrived at his Mulholland Drive home in Encino on Wednesday morning and found the “Soul Train” creator with a gunshot wound to the head, authorities said.

He was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to law enforcement sources.

His death is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department and L.A. County coroner’s office. The sources said detectives think it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound but stressed they are still investigating.

The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing, said the LAPD’s initial review of the crime scene suggested no sign of foul play.

He was 75 and recently had gone through a divorce.

In a 2010 interview with The Times, he said he was excited about a movie project he was developing about “Soul Train.”

“We’ve been in discussions with several people about getting a movie off the ground. It wouldn’t be the ‘Soul Train’ dance show, it would be more of a biographical look at the project,” he said. “It’s going to be about some of the things that really happened on the show.”According to The Times Hollywood Walk of Fame database, Cornelius’ “Soul Train” became the longest-running first-run nationally syndicated show in television history, bringing African American music and style to the world for 35 years.

Inspired by “American Bandstand,” he devised a similar program spotlighting black music and introduced it on the Chicago UHF station WCIU in 1970. It was syndicated in 1971, and Cornelius soon moved the production to Hollywood. Cornelius was the deep-voiced host, and in addition to major black artists, the show also attracted such R&B-leaning rock performers as David Bowie and Robert Palmer.

Cornelius stopped hosting the show in 1993, and “Soul Train” ceased production in 2006.

Jan 19, 2012      4:00 PM ET

Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke died Thursday of cardiac arrest after sustaining serious injuries following a skiing accident on Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Burke died at the age of 29 in hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah after tearing the artery that supplies blood to her brainstem during a training run in the superpipe while at a personal sponsor event at the Park City Mountain resort.

As the result of the crash, she suffered a ruptured vertebral artery, one of the four major arteries supplying blood to the brain. This caused her to go into cardiac arrest.

Emergency personnel responded and CPR was administered on the scene during which time she remained without a pulse or spontaneous breathing.

Burke was rushed to hospital, where she was put on life support and therapeutic hypothermia was initiated to protect her brain. On Wed. Jan. 11, she had surgery to repair the torn artery, and had been in a medically induced coma until she passed on Thursday morning.

After the operation, tests showed that Burke had sustained severe irreversible damage to her brain due to lack of oxygen and blood after cardiac arrest. This brain damage from lack of oxygen was ultimately fatal.

She passed away peacefully surrounded by those she loved. In accordance with Sarah’s wishes, her organs and tissues were donated to save the lives of others.

Burke’s publicist, Nicole Wool released a statement on Thursday afternoon.

“The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude for the international outpouring of support they have received from all the people Sarah touched,” the statement said.

“Our hearts go out to Sarah’s husband Rory and her entire family. It’s difficult for us to imagine their pain and what they’re going through. Sarah was certainly someone who lived life to the fullest and in doing so was a significant example to our community and far beyond. She will be greatly missed by all of us at the CFSA and the entire ski community,” Canadian Freestyle CEO Peter Judge said in a statement also released on Thursday afternoon.

Legendary life

Burke’s love of freestyle skiing started early. As a teenage moguls skier in Midland, Ont., she’d often sneak onto snowboard halfpipes for the last runs of the day.

“We did it on the last run so that if we got our tickets pulled we wouldn’t be too bummed, ” she once told ESPN.

Burke went from an unwanted pest on the halfpipe to one of its biggest stars and advocates, winning Winter X Games gold medals and lobbying for the sport’s inclusion in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Burke, who lived in Whistler, B.C., will go down as one of the legends of her sport.

Born in Barrie, Ont., and raised in Midland, Burke got her start skiing with her family when she was five years old. She took up moguls skiing and competed for Team Ontario before switching to freestyle and winning the halfpipe competition at the 2001 U.S. Open of Freeskiing.

Burke won four gold medals in superpipe at the Winter X Games and an additional gold in the event at the Wi nter X Games Europe, having swept both competitions in 2011. She was the early favourite for the event’s Olympic debut.

She also won the 2005 world championships, was the first woman to land a 1080-degree spin (three full rotations) in competition and won the 2007 ESPY award as Best Female Action Sports Athlete.

Along with her accomplishments on the slopes, Burke will also be remembered for her fierce advocacy for halfpipe skiing’s addition to the Olympics.

“She’s been a pioneer,” said Peter Judge, CEO of the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association. “She was really one of the people that started out and led the sport in its very infancy and she rose to prominence very quickly and continued to ride that wave from the standpoint of trying to push the boundaries of the sport.”

Though she was unsuccessful in getting halfpipe included in her hometown Olympics in Vancouver, Burke continued to be a driving factor in the sport’s inclusion in the 2014 Games.

“We’ve been fighting for years [and] it’s not been an easy road,” she told CBC reporter Teddy Katz on April 5, 2011 after the announcement was made.

“I woke up checking my phone a lot and keeping my fingers crossed. I knew it was looking good but you feel a little nervous. But finally when we heard that it was in, [I] was jumping for joy.”

Burke leaves behind her husband, fellow skier Rory Bushfield.

The family has received several inquires about donations to be made in Burke’s name. For more information, please go to http://www.giveforward.com/sarahburke.

 UPDATE: Man Dies After Getting Caught In Wood Chipper

January 12, 2012        4:57 PM

A man died Thursday morning after getting caught in a wood chipper while trimming trees at a home outside of Nevada City, according to the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department.

The accident happened around 8 a.m. at a home on Indian Shack Road. The victim, identified as Martin Lara, 50 of Applegate,
was part of crew using a large, industrial wood chipper.

Co-workers heard the man scream but could not help him in time.

According to the sheriff’s office, Lara somehow became entangled in a rope that was tied around a bundle of wood and was being pulled by the chipper. He was decapitated apparently either by the rope, clothing or brush and his body was pulled into the cone of the wood chipper but didn’t go all the way in before a co-worker pulled the lever.

“It was definitely a freak accident,” said sheriff’s Sgt. Hap Penaluna.

The company, Bushwackers, had been hired by the homeowner to clear brush.

“I don’t know how that could have happened,” said Jim Norman, owner of Trees Unlimited, who said he planned to talk to his 10 employees in the wake of the accident. “It brings tears to my eyes.”

January 4, 2012

Police shot and killed an eighth-grader in the hallway of his middle school Wednesday after the boy brandished what looked like a handgun and pointed it at officers. It turned out to be a pellet gun that closely resembled the real thing.

Fifteen-year-old Jaime Gonzalez “had plenty of opportunities to lower the gun and listen to the officers’ orders, and he didn’t want to,” Interim Police Chief Orlando Rodriguez said.

Shortly before the confrontation, the boy had walked into a classroom and punched a random boy in the nose for no apparent reason, police said. Investigators did not know why he pulled out the weapon.

“We think it looks like this was a way to bring attention to himself,” the police chief said. He said the officers’ actions were justified and no one else was hurt.

Authorities declined to share what the boy said before being shot.

The shooting happened during first period at Cummings Middle School in Brownsville. Teachers locked classroom doors and turned off lights, and some frightened students dove under their desks. They could hear police charge down the hallway and shout for Gonzalez to drop the weapon, followed by several shots.

Two officers fired three shots, hitting Gonzalez at least twice, police said.

The boy’s father, Jaime Gonzalez Sr., said he had no idea where his son got the gun or why he brought it to school.

“We wouldn’t give him a gift like that,” he told The Associated Press from the family’s home, where other relatives and friends of his son were gathering Wednesday night.

He said nothing seemed amiss when he, his wife and their son went out for nachos the night before, then went home and watched a movie. He said he last saw his son Wednesday morning, when the boy said goodbye before leaving to catch the bus to school.

Gonzalez Sr. was struggling to reconcile the day’s events, saying his son seemed to be doing better in school and was always helpful around the neighborhood mowing neighbors’ lawns, washing dogs and carrying his toolbox off to fix other kids’ bikes.

Both he and his wife, Noralva, questioned why police repeatedly shot at their son and called the shooting unjustified.

“Why was so much excess force used on a minor?” he asked. “Three shots. Why not one that would bring him down?”

His wife, who demanded that the officers be punished, added: “What happened was an injustice.”

Rodriguez said his officers “took the necessary action to protect themselves and the other kids.” There weren’t many others in the hall at the time, but “they had every right to take the action that they took.”

The boy’s godmother, Norma Leticia Navarro, said she couldn’t imagine why he would have brought a gun to school.

“I wish I could ask him why he did that, ‘Why did you put yourself in that position?'”

She said she understood that police were doing their job, but she wondered if other steps could have been taken.

“Jaime was not a bad kid,” she said. “I’m not saying he was perfect or an angel, but he was a very giving person.”

David A. Dusenbury, a retired deputy police chief in Long Beach, Calif., who now consults on police tactics, said the officers were probably justified in their actions.

If the boy was raising the gun as if to fire at someone, “then it’s unfortunate, but the officer certainly would have the right under the law to use deadly force.”

Administrators said the school would be closed Thursday but that students could attend classes at a nearby elementary school if they wished.

Superintendent Carl Montoya remembered Gonzalez as “a very positive young man.”

“He did music. He worked well with everybody. Just something unfortunately happened today that caused his behavior to go the way it went. So I don’t know.”

Gina Rangel was in her first-period class in the gym when the school was locked down. She said friends who were closer to the confrontation heard the boy threaten to kill everyone.

Her mother, Irma Rangel, said she was worried about the school’s safety “because if this happened once, kids imitate.”

Brownsville, on Texas’ southern tip, is beset by spillover violence from Mexico’s drug war. As word of the shooting spread through the city, frantic parents rushed to reach their children.

Those who got there early were able to retrieve their kids, but some who arrived later found the street outside the school lined with squad cars and blocked off.

Two hours later, dozens of frustrated parents and relatives flooded out of the park pavilion without their children after school officials announced that all remaining children had been bused to a high school and could be picked up there.

Julie Tomalenas waited for an hour to pick up her 13-year-old sister before being told of the relocation.

“It was very stressful not knowing if she was OK, where she was, when we could see her again,” she said.

Wednesday night, two dozen friends and classmates gathered in the dark street outside the family’s home. Jaime’s best friend, 16-year-old Star Rodriguez, said her favorite memory was when Jaime came to her party Dec. 29 and they danced and sang together.

“He was like a brother to me,” she said.

Margaret Anderson<br />
	Alleged gunman Benjamin Colton Barnes.<br />

January 1, 2012, 11:25 p.m.

A ranger was shot to death on New Year’s Day and the 368-square-mile park was closed while 150 officers searched for the gunman over snowy, rugged terrain.

Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said Benjamin Colton Barnes, 24, was a “strong person of interest” in the slaying of Margaret Anderson, 34. Authorities recovered his vehicle, with weapons and body armor inside, Troyer said. A park spokesman said Barnes was an Iraq war veteran.

The incident began about 10:20 a.m. when a man sped past a checkpoint, park spokesman Kevin Bacher said. One ranger began following him, and Anderson eventually blocked the road with her car to stop him.

The gunman fired shots at Anderson and the ranger behind him, but only Anderson was hit, Bacher said. The shooter escaped on foot.

Authorities were following tracks in the snow, Troyer said, and planned to bring in an airplane with heat-seeking capabilities.

“We believe we have a good track on him, but he’s way ahead of us,” Troyer said Sunday evening.

“We do not know what resources the shooter has,” Bacher said. “We’re not sure what we’re up against. We know that he has a weapon, but we don’t know how many.”

Authorities asked people to stay away from the park, and for those inside to leave.

“We do have a very hot and dangerous situation,” Troyer said.

Bacher said about 125 people were still at the visitors center Sunday night along with five law enforcement officers protecting it. He said crews had considered removing them in armored vehicles, but decided not to risk it.

Park Supt. Randy King said Anderson had two young daughters and a husband who was working as a ranger elsewhere in the park at the time of the shooting.

“It’s just a huge tragedy — for the family, the park and the park service,” King said.

Barnes was also a suspect in the early Sunday morning shooting of four people at a house party south of Seattle, police said.

Former Olympic fencer Bob Anderson, the man who wielded Darth Vader’s light saber, died Sunday at 89, according to the British Academy of Fencing.

Anderson’s film work began when he was a swordfight stunt double and coach for Errol Flynn in the 1953 movie “Master of Balantree,” but perhaps his best-known job was when he put on Vader’s helmet in “Star Wars” for the famous duel with Luke Skywalker, according to the Internet Movie Database.

He represented Britain in the 1952 Olympic fencing competition, according to the 2009 documentary “Reclaiming the Blade.”

“He was truly one of our greatest fencing masters and a world-class film fight director and choreographer, and both the fencing community and film world will miss him,” Philip Bruce, president of the British Academy of Fencing.

Anderson “passed away peacefully this morning at 4 a.m. in hospital,” Bruce said in a posting on his group’s website.

He also served as swordmaster and trained the lead actors in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and “Pirates of the Caribbean,” according to IMDb.com.

His credits include the 1993 remake of “The Three Musketeers,” “The Mask of Zorro,” “The Legend of Zorro,” “Die Another Day,” “The Princess Bride” and “The Parent Trap.”
