PHOTOGRAPHER SUES
BIEBER OVER ALTERCATION
LOS ANGELES — A photographer
sued Justin Bieber and one of his bodyguards Wednesday for assault and infliction of emotional distress over an altercation
on Hawaiian beach late
last year.
The lawsuit by
paparazzo Aja Oxman
states Bieber ordered his
bodyguard to take a
memory card after the
Bieber
photographer snapped
photos of the pop singer leaping from a
cliff into the ocean at Shipwreck Beach on
the island of Kauai. Bodyguard Dwayne
Patterson placed Oxman in a chokehold
and seriously injured him and damaged
his camera during the November incident, the lawsuit states.
The complaint seeks unspecified damages in excess of $25,000 for assault and
battery, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Patterson was arrested on suspicion of
assault and later charged with second
degree robbery. He pleaded no contest to
criminal property damage and harassment and was ordered to pay Oxman
$6,000 in restitution, court records show.
Patterson’s conviction won’t remain on
his record if he does not get into further
trouble, records show.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC BANS
MILEY CYRUS CONCERT
SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican
Republic — The Dominican Republic
government commission that oversees
public performances is banning a Sept. 13
concert by Miley Cyrus on morality
grounds.
The commission said in a statement
Thursday that it took the action because
Cyrus often “undertakes acts that go
against morals and customs, which are
punishable by Dominican law.”
Tickets ranging from $27 to $370 for
the concert in the capital have been on
sale since July.
Some critics have declared Cyrus’
onstage antics, including twerking and
crotch-grabbing, as vulgar.
A representative for Cyrus did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Concert organizers in the Dominican
Republic did not comment on the ban.
U.S. INSPECTOR FINDS
BEYONCE, JAY-Z
CUBA TRIP LEGAL
HAVANA — The U.S. Treasury
Department’s inspector general has determined Jay-Z and Beyonce’s fifth-anniversary trip to Cuba last year was legal under
rules allowing educational travel to the
island.
The music superstars angered several
Republican politicians in Florida with
their four-day visit to Havana, which saw
them eating in some of the city’s highend private restaurants and touring colonial Old Havana while Jay-Z puffed on a
Cuban cigar.
Washington’s 51-year embargo makes it
illegal for U.S. citizens to visit Cuba for
mere tourism, although tens of thousands
of Americans travel to the island each
year on academic, religious, journalistic or
cultural exchange licenses. The inspector
general’s office said in a report
Wednesday that the couple visited an art
school and a local theater group, helping
make their trip a legal educational
exchange.

Library taking applications for teen board
S
ometimes you see
yourself at a crossroads
in life. Recently I was
given the opportunity
to become the new
teen library assistant here at
the library.
Many know
that I have my
teaching
degree, and
have spent
five years trying my best to
get a job
Erica
teaching.
Rogers
Working with
children is such
a deep part of who I am I can’t
imagine doing anything else.
This is why I’ve decided to
embrace this new opportunity
and work with kids in a new
aspect … through the library.
Most of you also know by
now that I am a self-proclaimed nerd. I feel that it’s
important to let your true self
be known, no matter who you
are. I wear glasses, I love to
read, I wear unusual outfits,
and I embrace the powers of
the Force. Working with teens,
I feel it’s important to be open
and honest about these things.
I am always encouraging them
to express themselves whether
that’s on the football field, in a
painting, a book or even on a
Quiz Bowl team. I want the
library to be a place that they
can come and feel comfortable.
One of the ways that we
have been getting students
involved over the last few years
is through our Teen Advisory
Board. This is a group of students who not only love the
library, but like planning
events and working with their
peers on projects. In the past,
our board has held events such
as the chili cook-off, improv
nights, poetry readings, game
show recreations and more.
OK, parents, if you’re wanting your teens to get involved,
this is where they should start
reading. TAB is about more
than planning game nights.
You get a say in what books or
movies we might order, and
provide some input on maybe
giving a facelift to the teen
area. For those with looming
college applications in your
future, it’s a great fun way to
earn community service hours,
as well. I want to think of some
ways to get out into the community and help out in some
way, but even working around
the library gets you those coveted hours that colleges love to
see.
Also, we have a new website
dedicated just for the teens.
Check it out, bit.ly/hplteen.
When you join TAB, you can
help add to the website by suggesting books, apps or other
websites you think your peers
might enjoy. This website is
also where you can get your
application to sign up for TAB.
There is an online form, or a
print form that you can return
to the library. You can also pick
up applications at the library or
on the bookmobile.
Applications are due Sept. 5 so
that I can see who is interested
and what days are available to
work best with your schedules
for meetings. The first meeting
will be in September, and will
be announced after all the
applications are in. So make
sure you put down current
contact information.
The most important thing
about joining TAB is to have
fun. I want this to be an experience you enjoy and want to
participate in. We all know
how awesome the library
already is, but let’s work
together to make it YOUR kind
of awesome.

assistant at the Hastings Public
Library. Contact Rogers at 402461-2346 or email at

Watch your entries
for trump handling
S
ue Gardner, a
Canadian journalist
and former executive
director of the
Wikimedia
Foundation, said, “It’s a funny
habit to write
encyclopedia
entries. It’s not
a mass taste.”
When
Encyclopedia
Britannica was
still publishing its annual
Yearbook, I
Phillip
wrote the
Alder
bridge entry
and did not
consider it a funny habit — but
each to her or his own taste.
We could fill a chunk of an
encyclopedia with deals in
which players did not watch
their entries carefully enough.
In this layout, South is in four
hearts. West leads the diamond
ace. When East signals enthusiastically with his nine, West
continues with the diamond
king and another diamond.
East wins the third trick with
his queen and shifts to a spade.
How should South continue?
When South jumped to four
hearts, he wondered if four
spades might have been better,
but had no sensible way to
investigate.
South must play his trump
suit without loss. We all know
the “eight ever” ditty that
advises finessing as the percentage action. But should declarer
cash a high heart first?
If the suit is 3-2, South will

get home if East has the queen
and fail when West has her
majesty. But if East started with
four hearts, he is four times
more likely to have the queen
than West. (There are four low
singletons that West can hold
and there is only one singleton
queen.) So declarer should take
two heart finesses, which
requires two dummy entries.
South must overtake his
spade jack with dummy’s
queen and play a heart to his
jack. Then he should overtake
his club king with dummy’s
ace, repeat the heart finesse,
draw trumps and claim.
