(AP) - The city of North Miami recently annexed a parcel of land and was embarrassed to discover an incinerator, operated by a supermarket. Councilman Leonard Kimhall said, "I don't know how this got in. We don't allow an individual to burn his garbage here. Why would we let a business do it?"

The film opens Wednesday at the Lyric theater. James E. Jones Is Staying Busy NEW YORK (AFn - James Earl Jones is having a strenuous summer-long workout in one dramatic crisis after another. Recently starred in the racial play, "The Blood Knot," Jones' next assignment is the title role Moviedom's most costly production — and one of its most talked about — will open its first run in Lake Charles at the Lyric theater Wednesday. The romantic spectacle "Cleopatra" took a year to make and had cost around $20 million before the world tired of counting the dollars as well as hearing about the real-life affair between two of its s t a r s, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard I Burton, who are now married to each other. Miss Taylor plays the title role and Rex Harrison portrays Julius Caesar. Richard Burton! is seen as Mark Antony. They head the film's long list of stars which, for once, makes the cliche "too numerous to i mention" the only apt phrase. Among them are Roddy Mc, Dowell, Pamela Brown and Hume Cronyn. McDowell plays Octavian. Caesar's heir and Anthony's rival. The film's cost mounted as crews and actors and actresses moved from a studio in Rome to other locations in Italy, Egypt, Spain and London. Months passed and personnel, including a director, were hired, fired and some re-hired. Meantime, the brazenly open romance between Miss Taylor, (hen married to singer Eddie Fisher, and Burton, also married, created more talk than the cost of the film. Whether or not "Cleopatra" and its making caused the most talk in movie history, as its producers claim, probably will not be known unless someone devotes a lifetime to counting all the printed words about this film and the perennial "Gone With The Wind." in "Othello" at the Central Park Shakespeare Festival. In August he does O'Ncill's "The Emperor Jones" at the Boston Arts Festival. After that he returns to "Othello" for a Philadelphia engagement. OPEN TODAY 1:45 P.M. MONDAY 5:45 P.M.
