Mary Lou now legally an adult FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - Gold medal gymnast Mary Lou Retton, the mini powder keg who wowed millions in the 1984 Olympics, has been legally declared an adult although she's a month shy of her 18th birthday.

Ronnie Retton, of Fairmont, said the action gives his daughter a tax break on her investments. She turns 18 on Jan. 24. Mary Lou Retton Woman crowned new lying champ BURLINGTON, Wis. (AP) — A woman has won the title of best liar in the world for the first time in 33 years. Each was a windy tale. The winner is Mary Marie Weatherly of Oklahoma City. Her entry: "Here in Oklahoma we have very high winds, but two years ago they were higher than usual and the tomatoes in my garden couldn't get ripe because the wind kept blowing the sun off them." About 100 entries were received. The last woman champion liar was Bee Mclntyre of Richmond, Va. Her 1953 entry: "The strongest winds we ever heard of hit our place last summer along with a slam-bang thunderstorm. The wind was so strong it picked up our cast iron wash kettle that is three feet across and two feet deep and blew it out of the county. It blew that kettle so fast that while it was sailing across our front yard lightning struck at it five times and missed."

(AP) White House officials said Tuesday the necessary preparations are complete for the exchange of televised New Year's greetings today from President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. ABC, CBS and Cable News Network have said they would televise both leaders' recorded five-minute speeches when they become available at noon CST. Soviet television is expected to broadcast them simultaneously, which will be 9 p.m., prime time, in the Soviet Union. NBC is set to broadcast them 15 minutes after the others. CBS plans to interrupt its live coverage of the Tournament of Roses Parade to broadcast a 15-minute news program about the unprecedented televised exchange of greetings. White House spokesman Larry Speakes said the remarks are "in the spirit of Geneva," where Reagan and Gorbachev met in November for their first summit talks. Reagan recorded his message last week in Los Angeles before coming to this desert resort for a vacation at the estate of former Ambassador Walter Annenberg in nearby Rancho Mirage. Gorbachev's message was recorded about the same time in Moscow, and assistant White House press secretary Mark Weinberg said Tuesday the two nations had completed their exchange of the video tapes. Neither of the two leaders speaks the other's language, so the greetings were recorded in each man's native tongue. Each side provided the other with a written translation of the remarks, but it is up to the broadcasters to determine whether to run subtitle or voice-over tranlations. Reagan, meanwhile, remained out of sight Tuesday behind the security fence and double rows of high hedges surrounding the 200-acre Annenberg estate, Sunnylands. A brief White House statement said the president had breakfast with his wife Nancy, received his daily national security update on paper and studied some briefing materials for his meeting Friday in Mexicali, Mexico, with Mexican President Miguel de la Madrid. The statement said Reagan planned to play two rounds of golf on Annenberg's private, nine-hole course Tuesday following a game Monday, his first in a year. O JCPenney 4 DAYS ONLY!
