All McDonald's games scam mastermind testifies Palm Beach Post Wire Services JACKSONVILLE The mastermind of a scheme that stole high-value McDonald's Monopoly and Who Wants to be a Millionaire game pieces testified Monday that he recruited trusted friends to help find people to redeem the tickets. Jerome Jacobson, 59, of Lawrenceville, Ga., testified that he and recruiters would receive cuts of the prizes, which included cash awards of up to $1 million and a Dodge Viper. Jacobson testified he stole about 80 percent of the high-value tickets from 1995 to 2001. Jacobson was able to steal the prize pieces while working as head of security for Simon Marketing, the Atlanta-based company that oversaw the games. He testified his annual salary was $75,000. The five defendants are charged in federal court with using stolen high-value game pieces from McDonald's promotional games and illegally cashing them. Under questioning by the defendants' attorneys, Jacob-son said he only knew one of the five and had no business dealings with him. Jacobson, a former police officer in two Florida cities and Atlanta, also testified that none of the recruiters knew the other recruiters. Jacobson said he and one of the recruiters told at least one of the people who redeemed a game piece that the legitimate winner was involved in divorce case and did not want his estranged wife to know about the prize. Based on Jacobson's testimony, prosecutor Mark De-vereaux constructed an elaborate chart attaching the names of recruiters and the amount of the tickets they received on the chart using sticky yellow notes. Since the first arrests last August, 51 people have pleaded guilty for their roles in the 12-year scam. Prosecutors said the conspiracy began in 1989 and involved more than $20 million in fraudulently redeemed game pieces. The trial is expected to last at least three more weeks. paptured war on canvas HILARY J.

Mr. Brodney painted "YD," for Yankee Division on the trucks and Jeeps kept at Camp Edwards on Cape Cod. After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Mr. Brodney shipped off to New Caledonia as a medic. Even then, he toted oil paints, watercolors and sketchbooks. A general took note of how well Mr. Brodney camouflaged his medical tent and promoted him to chief of camouflage for all of New Caledonia. But he outgrew that assignment too, moving up to the public relations staff, where his first assignment was to paint portraits of flying aces to be sent to their hometown papers. Eventually the Army assigned him to paint the other side of the war idyllic scenes of soldiers playing baseball or setting up camp. After the war, Mr. Brodney married and opened a gallery of art and antiques. At 65, he returned to painting full time after a life-threatening bout with pneumonia. His new subjects were sailboats and polo fields. His family wasn't aware he had 120 paintings from World War II in his basement until 1995, when someone from the Pentagon called to ask if he kept any of his wartime work. Mr. Brodney is survived by his wife, Libby, daughter Jeanne Brodney and son Richard Brodney; five grandchildren, one great-grandson, two brothers and a sister.
