Gregory Reed, co-founder of the Parks Legacy, said North Carolina writer Belinda Boyd was asked last year to draft a play about Parks. "The play had many inaccuracies," Reed said Friday. "It was submitted to us without her (Boyd) having any communication or dialogue with Mrs. Rosa Parks." DARKS Boyd was asked to re- rMnixo vise it. But Reed said the next thing he knew, "Mother of Civil Rights: The Life of Rosa Parks," was scheduled to run this month at Wayne State University. He said he told the school a lawsuit was possible, and the production was suspended until the dispute is resolved. Kids think Ali is great OXFORD, Ohio — Muhammad Ali is still the greatest to children in this southwest Ohio town. Ali and other contributors to "Muhammad Ali: The People's Champ" will donate profits from the book to the Oxford Community Foundation. The 1995 book focuses on the life of the former heavyweight champion now slowed by Parkinson's disease. K.E. Smith, executive director of the foundation, said proceeds from the book will help support projects for 400 children who live in mobile home parks near Oxford and Miami University. Grisham no fan of 'Chamber' JACKSON, Miss. — John Grisham is no fan of "The Chamber." That's the film version of his book, not the original story. "I am happy to say that I had nothing to do with the making of 'The Chamber,' " the author said this week. "I think it's best if I leave it at that." The thriller opened last weekend. Grisham said he steered clear of the production because the script was so different from his book. He would not say what specific differences he disliked. "A Time to Kill," another movie based on a Grisham novel, is also in theaters. Because both movies are based in Mississippi and deal with the Ku Klux Klan, Grisham said he wished they had not been released so closely together. "People could get the impression that our state is still filled with Kluckers, and I regret that," Grisham said. From Wire Service Reports T ADVICE Wheelchair-bound woman enjoyed the Olympics Dear Ann Landers: I attended the Olympic games in Atlanta this past summer. Because I needed to use crutches and a wheelchair, I had considered staying home and not going through all the trouble of trying to get around. My family said, "If YOU don't go, WE don't go." It turned out that the Olympics were enjoyable and surprisingly easy to attend because of countless acts of kindness. I hope you will give me the chance to extend my heartfelt thanks to the y volunteers who sought me out and gave me an excellent place to view the competitions when I couldn't climb the steps, the man with the broad shoulders who walked in front of me to clear a path through the crowd so I could ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. move forward, and the many folks who stopped to ask, "Do you need to go anywhere? I'll take you." I want to gratefully acknowledge the 15 smiling women who told me to go ahead of them in the ladies' room line where there were only 12 stalls (I counted), all the moms and dads who quickly pulled their children out of my way so I wouldn't trip over them, and those who saw me coming and picked up napkins, paper towels and other debris from the floor and out of the way of my crutches, so my passage could be as smooth as possible. I don't want to forget the workers who showed me a faster route, a shorter line or a closer door, and the crowds of people on the mass-transit system and on the elevators who stepped aside and let me enter, even though I took up a lot of space. Nor do I want to miss thanking all those who smiled and said, "That's OK," when my husband nipped their tired ankles TV TONIGHT with my chair. And finally, I want to thank all the volunteers who asked if I enjoyed the event and really wanted to know the answer. These acts of kindness were frequent and automatic. They helped me look forward to traveling again, and I really fell in love with Atlanta. — Olympic Winner from Minnesota Dear Winner: Yours is my favorite kind of letter. These days, when we read so much about crime, violence and man's inhumanity to man, it's heartwarming to know how well you were treated by strangers in Atlanta. Thanks for reaffirming the goodness in people. Dear Ann Landers: I want to tell your readers how you have helped me solve some of my problems. Over the years, whenever my husband (who was not a great communicator) behaved in a way that bothered me, I would write a letter to Ann Landers and leave it on the dining room table. My husband, of course, would read it, which is what I intended him to do. When he saw my feelings down on paper, he could understand how his behavior affected me. Invariably, after he read one of my let ters, he would rethink the consequences of his behavior and get back on track. We never discussed it, but I was very pleased that he was able to make a turnabout. We were married 30 years before he died. Whenever I read your column, I think about how much you helped us in our marriage. My husband really respected your judgment. Thank you for settling some controversies you never even knew about. — Marilyn in Bumpass, Va. Dear Marilyn: It sounds as if you had a very good marriage. Some men are incapable of admitting they are wrong. How nice for you that your husband wasn't one of them. Thank you for letting me know I helped. That's the icing on the cake for me.
