People The Salina Journal Thursday, January 30,1986 Page 2 Jennifer Studer now has legal custody of Benji. Mom wins court battle for Benji BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A family court judge, ruling in the case of a &-year-old boy who was reunited with his mother after seeing himself on TV, decided Wednesday the woman has legal custody. Judge Charles M. Nice said that under the terms of Jennifer Studer's divorce last June from Benjamin Studer, she has custody of their son, Benji, who was taken from her home last January by his father. "I feel pretty good," said Benji after the 30-minute hearing. "I'm ready to go home with Mom.'' If there is to be any further legal fight over the boy, Nice said, it will have to take place in Covington, Ky., since that is where the divorce was granted and where Mrs. Studer, 30, was given custody of Benji. The father, who has been living in Bessemer, near Birmingham, said he plans to move back to Covington, establish residence and try to get custody of Benji. Last week, the father was arrested in Bessemer on a federal charge of unlawful flight. That charge has now been dropped. Benji saw himself on an NBC-TV show about missing persons and told his babysitter, Pam Robinson, who notified authorities. Heimlich likes to hit the slopes ALTA, Utah (AP) — Dr. Henry Jay Heimlich is known best for a method he developed to save choking victims. But here, he is known for maneuvering the snowy slopes. The Heimlich maneuver is credited with saving thousands of lives annually almost since medical journals started making the technique widely known in June 1974. Heimlich, who will be 66 on Feb. 3, said he has skied at Little Cottonwood Canyon twice annually for the past 10 years. He said he will be back to lecture at the University of Utah in early April about a portable oxygen system he has invented. Henry Heimlich Fireplaces fine in tropical Florida MIAMI (AP) — Homeowners in tropical south Florida want fireplaces so they can turn up the romantic heat. Architect Octavio Robles says most of his clients are demanding working fireplaces in the houses he designs for them. "Fireplaces are hot, in more ways than one," he said. "Everybody wants one. They're a very romantic thing." But fireplace heat can be very uncomfortable unless the temperature outside dips far enough, and that doesn't happen often in south Florida where the temperature averages 75.5 degrees. Robles says some of his more romantic friends simply turn up the air conditioning when firing up the fireplace. Snow rejected Opry special role NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Veteran country music star Hank Snow says he did not appear on this month's CBS-TV special saluting the Grand Ole Opry because his designated part made him feel like "an outcast." Snow, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, said he turned down an offer to sing one verse of his famed song, "I'mMovin'On." "I felt like the Opry should have done a lot more for me," Snow, 71, said. Opry spokesman Jerry Strobel said: "The format of this show was really a look at the Opry's influence in country music throughout the 60 years." The two-hour show featured more than Hank Snow 60 stars. Scottish poet wins British prize LONDON (AP) — Scottish poet Douglas Dunn has won Britain's richest literary prize, the $25,900 Whitbread Book of the Year Award. Dunn, 43, an apprentice and assistant to the late poet Philip Larkin, won the award for "Elegies." Salinan receives probation Cops sentenced to seek tutoring SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Police officers in Sanford and Altamonte Springs have broken the laws of grammar too often, their bosses complain. As a result, 20 officers from the two Seminole County departments and the Altamonte Springs fire department have been sentenced to weekly sessions with a tutor for help on grammar, spelling and punctuation. Glenda McClure, an adjunct teacher at Seminole Community College, said she hopes to train officers to eliminate redundancy and reduce the tune it takes to write reports by as much as 25 percent. In the courses she offers for free, McClure stresses a 20-word limit on the length of sentences and urges officers to be more specific. Such advice has transformed reports from, "I detected a strong smell of cannibas" to "I smelled cannibas," or from, "I made contact" with someone, to "I met with." A Salina man convicted of selling marijuana to an undercover police officer was granted a three-year probation Wednesday under the condition he serve 10 weekends in jail. Jose S. Martinez, 25,1250 Crescent Drive, was sentenced in Saline County District Court to three to 10 years in prison for making the sale on Aug. 22. Associate Judge Gene Penland said he would reluctantly place Martinez on probation. Martinez's attorney, Robert Constable, told the judge the drug transaction was an isolated incident. Constable said his client was selling the marijuana for a friend who wanted funds to return to Texas, and did not personally benefit from the sale. After the circumstances were explained to the prosecution, Constable said his client agreed to plead guilty to the charge if the prosecution would recommend probation. Penland referred to Martinez as someone who had "pulled himself up by his boot straps." Martinez, who was born in Mexico, came to the United States and found a manufacturing job, despite a limited education, Penland said.
