People The Salina Journal Sunday, February 2,1986 Page 2 Mary Lou Retton is shaky in skiing debut. Gymnast takes tumbles on slopes SUN VALLEY, Idaho (AP) — Olympic gymnast Mary Lou Retton learned that downhill skiing can be difficult for even the best athlete as she took her first ski lesson. Retton spent a lot of time tumbling, but it wasn't the type of tumbling that gained her a gold medal at the 1984 summer games. Even with coaching from former U.S. Olympic skier Suzie Chaffee, who gave Retton and actress Brooke Shields lessons on the slopes, Retton found that handstands and cartwheels in the snow came easier than trying to maneuver her skis. Retton and Chaffee, also a model, are among celebrities participating in the Sun Valley Celebrity Ski Invitational this weekend, which kicks off a week of activities marking the 50th anniversary of the nation's first ski resort. Little Richard faces traffic charges LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rock 'n' roll legend Little Richard was charged with reckless driving and other counts in an October traffic accident that put him in the hospital for three weeks.

Penniman, now a preacher and gospel singer, suffered a broken thigh bone and V cuts after the sports car he was driving smashed into a ir.etal traffic control box and a wooden pole Oct. 8. He was driving at least 50 mph in a 30 mph zone, sheriff's deputies said. Little Richard Pavarotti sings for his stallion LOUISVILLE, Ky.

Lisa leaving series LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress Lisa Hartman will leave her role as Cathy Geary Rush on CBS-TV's "Knots Landing " at the end of this season. Hartman, 28, who has just signed a singing contract with Atlantic Records, wanted to be free to pursue her music career, and it was felt the story lines for her character had been exhausted. She said she hopes the writers don't kill off her character so she can return later if she wants to. Lisa Hartman Wiarton Willie a forecaster, too WIARTON, Ontario (AP) — Punxsutawney Phil, move over. Wiarton Willie's staking his claim to be the real groundhog honored by Groundhog Day. When the little Pennsylvania beastie clambers out of his hole on Sunday to herald either winter or the coming of spring, Wiarton Willie will also be at work north of the border. Officials say Willie has been forecasting the weather for Canadians • for more than 30 years. Both in Canada and Pennsylvania, the legend has it that if he comes out on a sunny day and sees his shadow, he scurries back for six more weeks of winter. If he emerges on a cloudy day and sees no shadow, winter is over. Cowboy poems illustrate life in West ELKO, Nev. (AP) — The wide- open West, with its harsh lessons and tough people, was celebrated in verse by those who know it best — the cowboys. The second annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering drew thousands of people, mostly ranchers, to this rural Nevada town Thursday for three days of poems, music and story-telling — traditions started around campfires more than a century ago. For the men and women from working ranches around the West, the get-together represented what organizer saw as a chance to ponder, brag and laugh about the harsh life they've chosen. The poems are laced with insider's words, like "honyhokers" for early- day settlers and "kangaroos" for expensive cowboy boots, and are read aloud in dialects unfamiliar to many city dwellers. "Cowboys are part of the American culture. We identify with cowboys," says Hal Cannon of the Western Folk Life Center, which played a key role in launching the event. Cannon says cowboy poetry is a true American folk art that punctures the stereotyped version of the Wild West. Here's a poem from Montanan GwenPetersen: "A cowgirl knows just what she shouldn't do. "And several things that she wouldn't do. ' 'But, by God, to her credit "Though she never has said it "There really ain't much that she couldn't do." ****************** * Mid America Inn Restaurant T "SUPER SUNDAY SPECIAL" * 2 piece Fried Chicken Dinner, choice of potato, tossed salad, roll and FREE SUNDAE * (Make your own). *2.95 * 5p.m. 'till 10p.m. * 1842 N. 9th Salina, KS We have the best-ever selection of Lane cedar chests starting as low as Lay Away Now For Valentine's Day!
