A2 THE HAYS DAILY NEWS this&that FRIDAY, JUNE 16,2006 v NMUH ttMNMtt Cher supports better helmets WASHINGTON (AP) — The subject was whether to modify helmets for soldiers in Iraq, but all eyes were on Cher. As photographers clicked away, the singer and actress entered a Capitol Hill hearing room through a back door Thursday 20 minutes after Char * ne sess ' on was scheduled to start. The hearing soon got under way. Cher has donated more than $130,000 to the group Operation Helmet, which pays about $100 to modify the inside of soldiers' helmets to make them better able to absorb shock from a bomb blast. Cher looked solemn as she sat behind the group's founder, Dr. Bob Meaders, while he testified. Meaders said Cher didn't want to cause a distraction by testifying herself. The Army now equips its soldiers with padded helmets designed to be shock absorbent. The Marine Corps has commissioned a study to determine whether to change its helmets but has said the ones Marines now use are effective. One film left in Newman SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Paul Newman is considering his final scene. "I will probably have one film left in me," the 81-year-old actor told The Associated Press on Thursday. "The last hurrah." Newman's latest role is playing the Newman cantankerous 1951 Hudson Hornet in Pixar's new animated film, "Cars." His film career stretches back to the 1950s and includes "The Stingi"' "Cool! HanT'Luke" and "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." "It's time. When WS time to get out, it's time to get out," Newman said. Newman said he had a project in mind but would not provide further details. He was visiting this upstate resort town as part of a fundraising campaign for the Double H Ranch, an Adirondack camp he co-founded for children with cancer, AIDS and other illnesses. The camp is one of eight affiliated with the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut, the first camp Newman created for gravely ill children. "When we started the camp, we had no idea of the profound impact these camps would have on these kids," Newman said. lotteries TOPEKA — Here are the whining numbers selected Thursday in the Kansas Lottery: Daily Pick 3 5-7-0 Kansas 2by2 Red Numbers: 8-12 White Numbers: 9-12 The following animals are at the Humane Society of the High Plains, 2050 E.

This Is an Ail-American Redneck wedding, said Trenton Reynolds. I was talking to a young patron earlier this week but didn't have the time to address this question: How do you make a moving cartoon on paper? First off, you need several sheets of paper bound together, such as a notebook or a notepad. It should be paper you can write on (not a library book!), and you should be able to flip through it with your thumb. Usually the smaller the pad, the easier it will be to flip the pages in a steady stream. As with any project, it is best to have an idea in mind of what you want to accomplish before you start. For this explanation, we will do something simple — a walking stick figure. Go to the last sheet in the pad and draw the stick figure iri j a ••" standing pose. Draw it down toward the bottom, of the page, or where yout can easily see it when you flip through the pages. ASK ERIC changes from the previous image. The advantage to working from the back of the pad to the front is that you should be able to slightly see the image you drew on the previous sheet through the paper. This will help you to maintain continuity, or a steady flow from one image to the next, page to page. An even simpler practice for your first couple of attempts is to make a ball bounce around. As you go, keep in mind that the more pages you use and the slighter the changes you make to your cartoon, the happier you will be with your results. Take your time and have fun. Bring one in that you're happy with and show me when it's finished.

Now, go to the next page and make a simple change to the image — lift a foot. But make it a slight change. The more you try this, the more you will see that slight changes work best because the image won't jump around a bunch on the page. th from right to left.

Bush signs programming bill WASHINGTON (AP) — President George Bush signed legislation Thursday that would cost broadcasters dearly when raunchy programming exceeds "the bounds of decency." At a signing ceremony for the new law increasing by tenfold the maximum fine for indecency, Bush said that it would force industry figures to "take seriously their duty to keep the public airwaves free of obscene, profane and indecent material." Accompanying the president at the ceremony was a crowd of lawmakers who worked to pass the bill in Congress. For raunchy talk or a racy show of skin, the Federal Communications Commission can now fine a broadcaster up to $325,000 per incident. Approval of the bill culminates a two-year effort to get tough on sexually explicit material and offensive language on radio and television following Janet Jackson's 2004 Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction." The FCC recently denied a petition of reconsideration from CBS Corp.-owned stations facing $550,000 in fines over the Jackson incident, in which she briefly re- vealed a breast during a halftime concert. The agency recently handed down its biggest fine, $3.3 million, against more than 100 CBS affiliates that aired an episode of the series "Without a Trace" that simulated an orgy scene. That fine is now under review. The FCC has received increasing complaints about lewd material over the airwaves, and has responded with fines jumping from $440,000 in 2003 to almost $8 million in 2004. "The problem we have is that the maximum penalty that the FCC can impose under current law is just $32,500 per violation," Bush said. "And for some broadcasters, this amount is meaningless. It's relatively painless for them when they violate decency standards." The bill does not apply to cable or satellite broadcasts, and does not try to define what is indecent. The FCC says indecent material is that which contains sexual or excretory material that does not rise to the level of obscenity. The legislation, while facing little resistance in Congress, had detractors warning of problems in defining what is indecent and of the erosion of First Amendment rights.
