Madonna, in an article in the Nov. 23 TV Guide, compared her three-month stay in the Evansville area during the filming of the movie "A League of Their Own" with a visit to Prague, Czechoslovakia. The Material Girl was upset she didn't get MTV at the house she rented during filming last summer. "Anyone bored with both Evansville and baseball deserves our sympathy. It means they are bored with life," said Republican Sen. Dan Coats. "I am personally offering to buy Madonna a dinner at Mattingly's where she can give both the town and the sport another chance." There was no word on whether Madonna would accept the invite. The movie, which focuses on a women's professional baseball league in the 1940s, also features Tom Hanks and Geena Davis. From Sentinel wire services Parks won't close in near future Continued from Page Al The department is now looking closely at how it can cut expenses without affecting the public's use of parks and beaches, he said. "We're probing efficiencies in the field and at headquarters before we talk about closing parks," Murphy said. Murphy said that rumors of park closures and layoffs have created "a lot of paranoia" on the part of the public.

Cutting budgets for seasonal employees is also being considered. Murphy is also part of a subcommittee looking at ways to expand revenues without increasing fees. State parks stores modeled on the Nature Company, selling books and nature items are being considered, as are expanded concessions such as tent cabins and hot dog stands in the parks, and more events such as 10K races and symphonies.

Even small items are being examined, such as pay showers. Although many state parks have free showers, pay showers have been a reality for some time at Pfeiffer Big Sur Park, he said. Three minutes of hot water costs a quarter, and the quarters from the park's 30 showers add up to $40,000 to $50,000 per year for the park. Expanding that program throughout the state could raise some $500,000 a year, said Murphy. Besides raising money, the pay showers save the district a million gallons of water a month.
