Page 14 — Wednesday, September 17, 2003 Ex CETERA jfn&tana dtazette Alumni'Survivors' Today in History want to go back By The Associated Press PROBST By The Associated Press NEW YORK — Being a "Survivor" once doesn't mean a little lobbying is beneath you. Host Jeff Probst says he's been getting tapes from past contestants on the CBS reality show who hope to compete again. Casting for the alumni edition of "Survivor" is happening soon and the series will air early next year. Some of the game's indelible personalities may be in for a surprise, Probst said. "The notion of 'just because you won entitles you to a shot" is, from my point of view, baloney," he said. Meanwhile, the seventh edition of the show, from Pearl Islands, debuts at 8 p.m. Thursday. It features the biggest whopper of a lie toid by a "Survivor" contestant and a near drowning. When a contestant started struggling during a water-based challenge, Probst was on shore telling antsy rescuers to wait and see if the person's teammates would come to the rescue. "I was on the beach saying, 'Hold off, hold off,'" he said. People I-IADDONFIELD, N.J. — The movie industry and New Jersey's economy could get a boost from a fund to loan state-backed money to filmmakers, Gov. lames E. McGreevey said as he signed the program into law before an audience of politicians and actors. McGreevey estimated that New Jersey businesses get $2 of bene- fit for every $1 spent on movie production in the state. Among the films shot in New Jersey in recent years: Ron Howard's Oscar-winning "A Beautiful Mind" and the upcoming "Jersey Girl," starring Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, and directed by Kevin Smith. William Baldwin, one of several actors who appeared alongside McGreevey at the bill-signing ceremony Monday, said a sluggish economy means fewer people have the money or desire to invest in independent movies. However, the fund "puts the state of New Jersey and the taxpayers at little or no risk," said Baldwin, adding that production should create more work for actors and those who work behind the scenes. Last year, a record 801 productions were shot in the state. Only California, New York, Illinois and Florida had more — although Canada is continuing to attract productions, in large part because of a favorable exchange rate. The bill puts into place a $10 million fund through the state's Economic Development Authority. The money is to be loaned to filmmakers at up to $1.5 million per project. Paul Sorvino, who is producing and directing "The Trouble With Callie," which will be shot in Haddonfield, said he hopes his will be the first project to get a loan from the new fund. Sorvino, who appeared in the 1990 film "Goodfellas," said the fund would benefit more than New Jersey's economy. "What this will do is bring an uplift psychologically," he said. Today is Wednesday, Sept. 17, the 260th day of 2003. There are 105 days left in the year.

Philadelphia Orchestra hires new maestro PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Christoph Eschenbach, the seventh musical director of The Philadelphia Orchestra, takes the podium this week with a vision to bring the 103-year-old company closer to its audience through innovative performances, pre- concert talks, community outreach — even less formal attire. "We must close the gap that exists between the stage and the hall," said Eschenbach, who marks his first concert as the orchestra's music director on Wednesday. The inaugural week features the world premiere of the orchestra-commissioned "Avatar" by Philadelphia composer Gerald Levinson, a performance of the Dvorak Cello Concerto fea- turing famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Berlioz's "Overture to Benvenuto Cellini," and Brahms' First Symphony. Eschenbach, 63, was named to the post in January 2001 and follows in the footsteps of legendary maestros including Leopold Stokowski, Eugene Ormandy, Riccardo Muti and current musical director Wolfgang Sawallisch, 80, who will assume the title of conductor laureate. One of the most immediate differences Philadelphia concertgo- ers will notice is the distinctive conducting style of their new maestro, said Welz Kauffman, president of Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Ravinia Festival, where Eschenbach just ended his tenure as music director. Dear Abby By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: Our family recently went to visit my in-laws at their cottage. While we were there, the septic system stopped working and my mother-in-law, "Doris," suggested that my niece and I relieve ourselves behind the shed. After I followed her suggestion, I noticed my father-in-law, "Ralph," standing not too far away watching me. I was shocked and offended, but didn't tell my husband until we left a few minutes later. We have had a problem in the past with Ralph. Once when I was nursing, he sat close to me and stared at my chest. My husband said, "There's only enough room for one head, Dad." Immediately afterward, I spoke to Doris, and the peeping stopped. The nursing thing was weird, but this goes way beyond that. I like and respect Ralph for the most part, but I don't know what to do. We go to my in-laws' every other weekend. I can't go over there and pretend nothing happened. My husband wants to talk to his father alone, but I feel Ralph needs to account to someone other trjan his son — he should also account to Doris. Is this taking it too far? — UPSET IN CONNECTICUT DEAR UPSET: I don't think so. Your father-in-law appears to have a serious problem with "boundaries." He also appears to be a voyeur—a Peeping Tom. Since "peepers" have been known to escalate their behavior, it should be called to Doris' attention before her husband gets himself arrested and has to register as a sex offender. Please don't wait. It is possible that you are not the only person Ralph has been watching. DEAR ABBY: My husband, "Kent," and I have been married for seven years, and I'm facing a painful decision. Kent has a drug problem. I did- n't know about his addiction until recently, when money started disappearing from our joint account. Kent admitted to me that he's had a habit since before I met him. However, he doesn't consider it to be a "problem." He made it clear that he has no intention of quitting. And I made it clear that I don't want to be married to someone who's addicted to drugs. I should probably leave him, but I love him too much — and we have four precious children who love him, too. My husband rarely shows any signs of drug abuse; that's why I never had a clue until now. To his credit, Kent is a great husband and father. Please help me decide what to do, Abby. I am against drug use, but I dearly love my husband. — TORN IN SASKATCHEWAN DEAR TORN: You already know what you have to do. Until your husband is willing to admit he has a problem, he cannot get the help that's available. Kent should be encouraged to get into rehab and attend meetings of Narcotics Anonymous where other addicts have found new courage, strength and hope. Call telephone information for the local number. The NJ\- Web sile offers meeting (and other) information:; the e-mail address is; or write to N.A., P.O. Box 9999, Van Nuys, CA 91409. If your husband refuses help, separate your finances from his and get the children away from him before they get the impression that drug use is acceptable.
