I ' D4 Saturday, March 23, 2002 Life & Arts Austin American-Statesman Grieving up about Q: We have passed through Vidor a number of times over the years and seen these billboards olT Interstate 10 about a murder. I'm very curious about them. Can you help? Sandy Murtagh Al The billboards were erected by the family of Kathy Fulton Page, who was murdered in May 19!) 1. No one has been convicted of the rape and death of the mother of two; however, in 1999 an Orange County jury ordered the victim's husband, Steve Page, to pay $200,000 to the Fulton famiiy. The signs remain along the interstate, according to reporters at the Beaumont Enterprise. The victim's father vows to leave them up until a conviction. The signs are provocative, for example: "This is Orange County, City of Vidor. Here you get by with brutally murdering a woman.." Q: I saw the space shuttle coming recently. How do they set this big craft to land in Florida without any power? It seems that if they make a mistake and miss the runway, they are out of luck since they have no power to return. It's amazing that this craft can arrive at the end of the runway at the correct speed after traveling at such a high rate of speed from such a long distance.

Traveling at close to 18,000 mph in orbit, the shuttle faces unique landing challenges. Slowing down as it approaches the Earth's atmosphere by firing rockets, the shuttle also goes through a series of S turns to slow down. In addition, the rudder and wings are manipulated (much like a jet) to continue the slowdown. Finally a speed brake is used while the vertical tail opens and a parachute is deployed. The speed brake and the parachute produce a drag on the shuttle. It is estimated that the shuttle touches the runway at about 215 mph and comes to a halt about three-quarters down the runway. Q) My New Year's resolution is to recycle more. I've noticed that most plastic is marked for recycling, but the cap has no markings. Are caps to plastic containers recyclable? G. Colbert A: Not in Texas, at least not at present, says Patrick Jones, oper pursue further arts education. She is an 1 1 th grader at Lake Travis High School and has been studying the performing arts for most of her 16 years, with more than 13 years devoted to dance training and 12 years to acting training. She is a member of the Texas Music Educators Association All-State Choir and the Austin Musical Theater's Junior Performance Troupe. She plans to continue her study with her private voice instructor and performance coach, Sylvia Gallo.

The plastic bottles have been blow molded; however, the caps were made by injection molding. The plastic used in these two processes is different. The first is recyclable; the latter is not. Great resolution, by the way! Q: This will seem like an unusual question, but can you tell me how to put tarnish back onto an object quickly? I recently purchased an old copper plaque. I decided to polish it. Now I've decided I like it better tarnished. Kris Rergeson A: It may be difficult to re-create that original tarnish look. Try a product such as Brass Antiquing Solution ($8.25 at Breed & Co., 3663 Bee Cave Road). Professionals like Darren Wicker at Austin Brass, 5451 Burnet Road, use vats of chemical oxidizers to tarnish copper, brass or silver by submersion. The trick, says Wicker, is to do it evenly without pitting the metal. Average price? $75. You could wait (months or years) for nature to do the job for you. Contact Jane Greig at P.O.

O'Donnell feels betrayed by documentary makers By Christy Lemire Associated Press NEW YORK Rosie O'Donnell is asking to have her name and voice removed from an Oscar-nominated documentary after learning that the filmmakers are involved in a group that has been described as a homophobic cult. The talk show host, who recently came out as a lesbian, narrated "Artists and Orphans; A True Drama," about a New York theater group that travels to the former Soviet republic of Georgia to help orphaned and abandoned children. The film is competing against two other documentary shorts for an Academy Award on Sunday. O'Donnell, who has three adopted children and has been a vocal proponent of gays adopting children, volunteered to narrate the short. But her spokeswoman said Wednesday that O'Donnell found out this week that the filmmakers including director Lianne Klapper McNally are involved with the Fourth Way School. The group emphasizes personal development, and, according to various newspaper reports, bans homosexuals and believes gays shouldn't be parents. "If Rosie had known the truth about this organization, she never would have consented to lend her name and voice," said O'Donnell's publicist, Cindi Berger. She added that "Rosie is angry coal, pastellos, pens and prisma with mixed media. She plans to' attend the summer program at the Art Institute of Chicago and study visual arts at Austin-area museums. Send notice of significant achievements in the arts, along with a non-returnable photograph of the artist, to Michael Barnes or Box 670, Austin, TX 78767.

Klapper McNally has an unlisted phone number and did not immediately respond to an e-mail request for comment. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also did not immediately return a call for comment; voting for the awards concluded Tuesday. David Goldstein, a lawyer representing the film, told New York's Daily News that suggesting that "Artists and Orphans" is "the work of some kind of nefarious cult is completely baseless." "Furthermore, the inflammatory accusation that certain people affiliated with the film are involved in an organization that endangers the welfare of children or discriminates against . . . gays and lesbians or families is without foundation," Goldstein said. Rick Ross, a New Jersey-based cult expert and lecturer who helped deprogram Branch Da-vidians in the mid-'90s, said the Fourth Way is a cult and excludes gays. "They must renounce their sexual preference and work toward becoming heterosexual," said Ross, who said he has spent hours talking with former members. Articles from 1996 in the Los Angeles Times and from 1995 in the San Diego Union-Tribune about a branch of the Fourth Way School, in Oregon House, Calif., said the group bans gays. m SHUWHMt1.
