Arts & Entertainment HASTINGS TRIBUNE Friday, Aug. 22, 2014 NewsMakers 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. The Associated Press 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. Erica Rogers is the teen library assistant at the Hastings Public Library. Contact Rogers at 402461-2346 or email at [email protected] A7 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 North ´Q954 ™63 ©J72 ®AJ85 West East ´863 ´ 10 7 2 ™2 ™Q754 ©AK83 ©Q94 ® 10 9 7 4 2 ®Q63 South ´AKJ ™ A K J 10 9 8 © 10 6 5 ®K Dealer: South Vulnerable: East-West South West North East 1™ Pass 1 ´ Pass 4™ Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: © A 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. Phillip Alder is a columnist for Newspaper Enterprise Association.
