A2 THE HAYS DAILY NEWS this & that TUESDAY, JUNE 13,2006 People in me News Don't you forget about me PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Anthony Michael Hall, who played the awkward geek in '80s teen movies "Sixteen Candles" and "The Breakfast Club," says he doesn't try to forget his early career. . "To be part of some films that people have grown up with — it's amazing," the 38-year-old Hall told reporters recently, according to AP Radio. "I'm often stunned by it. It's actually very humbling." More than 20 years later, Hall has gone from geek to reluctant psychic as the star of USA's "The Dead Zone." The series' fifth season starts at 9 p.m. Sunday. Real nightmare NEW YORK (AP) —Julia Stiles says shooting a remake of the 1976 horror classic, "The Omen," was a real nightmare for her because the original scared her so much. "I think I kind of absorbed a lot of the imagery from it and the Stiles themes in it and so I had horrible nightmares while we were shooting. I kept dreaming images from the original," the 25- year-old actress told reporters recently, according to AP Radio. Stiles, whose screen credits also include "The Bourne Identity" and "Mona Lisa Smile," said she was very superstitious while making the movie. "I was very scared. I kept thinking that we were tempting the fates, said Stiles, so she wouldn't let anyone say the words "devil" or "spirits" on the set, "and before certain scenes, we would have to remind ourselves that it was a work of fiction." Time heals wounds LOS ANGELES (AP) — The sister of Nicole Brown Simpson said she is no longer consumed by hate for 0. J. Simpson. Denise Brown told "Inside Edition" that she has moved on and the feelings she once had for her former brother-in- law have melted away. "I was really angry (at him) R m «in for a long time rown and I did anything I could to irritate him and, in a sick sort of way, it gave me pleasure," Brown said. "It's as if a whole load of yuck was just built up on my shoulders and now it's gone." Simpson was acquitted of the June 12,1994, slayings of his former wife and her friend Ron Goldman outside her Brentwood home. No one else has been arrested. The victims' survivors later sued Simpson in civil court, where a jury, using a lesser standard of proof than required at a criminal trial, found him liable for the killings and ordered him to pay $33.5 million. The judgment remains unpaid by Simpson, who now lives in Florida. Piracy OK for poor LIMA, Peru (AP) — Music piracy is unstoppable — and justified for poor fans, says Puerto Rican reggae- ton sensation Daddy Yankee. "You can't control (piracy). They gonna keep on doing it," said Yankee, who was in Lima to promote his "Barrio Fino en Directo" album, which features live and remixed versions of 2004 hits such as "Gasolina" and "Lo Que Paso, Paso." Music and software piracy are widespread in Peru, as is poverty. "Sometimes, economically speaking, in different countries ... it's hard for a kid to buy your record," said Yankee, whose real name is Raymond Ayala. Even if It means he makes less money, said Yankee, if a fan can only afford a pirated copy of his album, "nothing matters because the kid is poor." Reggaeton — an infectious tangle of Spanish rap, Jamaican dancehall reggae and the pulsating tropical rhythms of bachata, salsa and merengue — is a fixture on urban radio stations and dance clubs. Yankee Eruption ACHMAD IBRAHIM / Associated Press Indonesia's Merapl volcano erupts with giant clouds of gasses and ash today as seen from Bebeng village outside Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Mount Merapl's unstable lava dome has partially collapsed, easing pressure that threatened to make the Indonesian volcano erupt. Judge gives Steinbeck kin rights to works NEW YORK (AP) — A son and a granddaughter of author John Steinbeck hold the publishing rights to 10 of his early works, including "The Grapes of Wrath" and "Of Mice and Men," a federal judge has ruled, turning away a publishing house and others who claimed the rights. U.S. District Judge Richard Owen said in a 10-page order dated Thursday that the rights properly belong to Thomas Steinbeck and Blake Smyle. The ruling came after the two canceled rights previously held by individuals and organizations including publishing house Penguin'Group (USA) Inc. and the heirs of John Steinbeck's widow. Elaine, who died in April 2003. ••• -•• ; The rights to many of Steinbeck's other works will remain with Penguin and the heirs of Elaine Steinbeck, the author's third wife. Still others will be held jointly with Thomas Steinbeck, of Monticello, Calif., and Smyle, of Boonsboro, Md. Smyle is the only child of John Steinbeck IV, who died in 1991. Lotteries TOPEKA.

FSA approves grazing on CRP land in 31 counties The Kansas Farm Service Agency today approved the grazing of Conservation Reserve Program acres — a result of dwindling pastures brought on by a'' ; contjnujn$ drought,. ,-,. ( .., •.,.. ., i -The grazing has been approved for 31 counties. FSA Kansas director Bill Fuller had originally asked that grazing be allowed in 45 counties. "This authorization, requested by the Kansas FSA, provides relief for many Kansas livestock producers who have suffered through severe drought conditions during the past 6 years," Fuller said in a statement. "The drought has depleted hay supplies and affected the growth of hay and pasture in parts of Kansas. Many livestock producers cannot maintain their current herds without implementation of CRP emergency grazing." In northwest Kansas, the counties approved for grazing are: Cheyenne, Decatur, Ellis, Gove, Graham, Ness, Osborne, Rawlins, Rush, Russell, Thomas and Trego. 8th Street Chiropractic Dr. Paul J.
