"I have been consistently banned since I started writing," the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist said during a visit Tuesday to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "But ultimately, if it is a true gift, something ultimately good for the people, it's all right." ..... ., pp That said, Walker read WAL * tH excerpts from her short stories "Am I Blue" and "Roselily" that transfixed her audience of mostly female students. "Now why do you suppose that was banned?" she asked. There was mumbling and nervous laughter. "When we think of censorship, we think of other countries," Walker said. "We think we live in a great democracy." "Roselily," about a Christian married to a Muslim, was criticized as anti-religious, and "Am I Blue?" — about love for a horse — was said to be violent and an affront to meat-eaters. Both were removed from a 1994 California state exam for loth-graders. Lucas wins compound battle SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — The force was with George Lucas in his crusade to expand his entertainment and computer empire. Marin County supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to approve Lucas' proposal for construction of an $87 million digital film and interactive multimedia compound. He had waged a 10-year battle for the expansion. "I'm glad we finally managed to reach this level," the creator of the "Star Wars" trilogy said after the vote. ' Lucas said he hopes to break ground within two years on the project that would adjoin Skywalker Ranch, his headquarters in Northern California since 1979. Gymnast heads Fiesta parade TEMPE, Ariz. — Kerri Strug has vaulted her way to the top of the MicroAge Fiesta Bowl Parade. The-19-year-old gymnast was named Wednesday as grand marshal of the New Year's Eve parade in Phoenix. Strug catapulted to fame when her vault on an injured ankle clinched the first-ever gold medal for the U.S. women's gymnastics team during the Summer Games. "If I could be a grand marshal, I definitely want it to be at the Fiesta Bowl because it's an Arizona," said Strug, a Tucson native.

Tampa Tom should be thankful Hazel broke it off Dear Ann Landers: I met a woman in November 1995, and we became engaged in March. She broke our , A engagement in August. "Hazel" is 30 and has a 27-year-old sister. They are inseparable. We could never go anywhere alone. Her sister was always with us, and I had to pay for everything for three. Neither Hazel nor her sister have ever held a job. Their father gives them money whenever they need it. He is a house painter and has taught the girls the trade. They w have gone with him on several jobs as "helpers." The whole family loves to play cards. They go to a place and play blackjack and poker and bingo. Of course, Daddy supplies all the gambling money. ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. Their lifestyle is bizarre. They do not have a telephone or a mailbox. It is their custom to spend five months of the year in Ohio and the winters in Florida, where I live. When they were in Ohio, I talked to Hazel on the phone every other day. She always called me collect from a public phone. In order to talk to her while she was in Florida, I bought her a cellular phone and told her she was the only one who could use it. Hazel agreed to this. I later received two phone bills totaling $700. She denies making these calls. Hazel said she cared for me very much and wanted a future with me, but then she broke off our engagement, claiming we are not sexually compatible. I don't know what she is talking about. We've never had sex. What do you make of all this, Ann? — Tampa Tom Dear Tom: Hazel is two sandwiches short of a picnic. Consider yourself lucky she broke the engagement. The whole TV TONIGHT family sounds as if it belongs in a squirrel cage. If Hazel calls and says she has changed her mind and wants to marry you after all, tell her you have changed your mind, too. Get your cellular phone back, change your number and forget about Hazel. Dear Ann Landers: I live in a small midwestern town where playing bridge is a frequent pastime. These games are in the evening. We serve a light supper and play until 10. The problem is one woman who often brings her 4-year-old daughter along without warning. Everyone else who has children makes other arrangements, as this is considered a night out. Even the hostess goes to great lengths to get her family out of the house or relegates them to the recreation room or the basement. This 4-year-old is spoiled rotten and does her darndest to be the center of attention. What is supposed to be an enjoy- able card game turns out to be a teeth- grinding, nail-biting evening. The mother makes no effort whatsoever to control the child. Is there a tactful way to tell this woman not to bring her daughter to our card games and that we would be happy to find a substitute if she cannot get a sitter? We are all sick to death of that kid. — Fed Up in Nebraska Dear Nebraska: Forget about tact. That woman has demonstrated a total lack of sensitivity by bringing her child to your homes and allowing her to be disruptive and obnoxious. Tell her point-blank that she is not to bring the child again and if she can't find a sitter, you will find another player in her place.
