Donovan’s joke flops
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Art
Donovan, a former Baltimore Colts
football player and perpetual jokes-

pounds at birth, Donovan said, “If

Archbishop Roger Mahony took off
in a $400,000 helicopter given to
the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Mahony, 53, will use the helicop-

the nation’s most populous Roman
Catholic archdiocese, which covers
an area larger than Israel.
“It’s part of the Southern Cali-

problem,” said the archbishop, who
took the gift out for a spin Tuesday.
The helicopter, blessed by the
archbishop and sporting a St. Chris-

Cher’s beau pleads
no contest to charges
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Aspir-
ing actor Rob Camilletti has
pleaded no contest to two counts of
vandalism for smashing a
photographer’s camera equipment
outside the home of his girlfriend,
Cher, a prosecutor said.
His attorney entered the plea
Tuesday. CamUlelti, a former New
York bagel maker, pizza chef and
bartender, faces up to one year in
jail and a $2,000 fine when he is
sentenced March 14.
CamiHetti’s run-in with free-
lance photographers who were stak-
ing out Cher’s home occurred last
July. He was accused of trying to
run photographer Peter Brandt
down in a Ferrari and damaging his
camera equipment. A prosecutor
said she will move to dismiss a
reckless driving charge.

Trump plans biggest
casino in world
NEW YORK (AP) — Donald
Trump has a vision of “Disneyland
in Atlantic City” and “the most
spectacular building” in the country
— his casino.
The 1,250-room Trump Taj
Mahal Casino Resort — compete
with Arabic-style domes, an
amusement park and a heliport —
will be the biggest gambling casino
in the world. Trump said Tuesday.
Trump said the Atlantic City,
N.J., casino will be worth $1 billion
when about 4,000 workers finish
building it in early 1990. Construc-
tion began in 1983. Trump bought
the property several months ago.
His plans: a 3,000-seat fast food
restaurant, a 5,000-car garage, a 42-
story hotel, and a sports arena with
enough space to park eight blimps.

Dear Ann Landers: I woke up
with the world's worst hangover. I
took a couple of aspirins, stumbled
into the kitchen, made myself coffee
and grabbed the morning paper.
llc^~T!x headline seemed to jump off
the page. It read:
2-YEAR-OLD AND MOTHER
KILLED IN HIT & RUN
ACCIDENT, POLICE ON
As I read the story, 1 got a sick
feeling in my stomach. I couldn't
remember anything about last
night. I ran to look at my car. My
heart sank to my knees. The
bumper was twisted and the front
fender was smashed.
I wouldn't leave the scene of an
accident, no matter how drunk I
was. Or would I? Chilling thoughts
raced through my mind. What
should I do now? Call the police?
Get a lawyer? I was petrified.
I reached for the phone and
started to dial the police. Then I
stopped. They would ask me all
sorts of questions. What could 1
say? I was drunk. I don't remem-
ber. I could almost hear the jail
door clang shut behind me.
Just then my brother-in-law
walked into the kitchen. What did
he know? Had the police arrived? I
put down the phone and 'ran
toward him in tears.
He said. “I’m sure it's upsetting to
hit a deer, honey, but you'll get over
I couldn't believe what I had just
heard. Did he say 1 had hit a deer?
I swear, with my hand on the
Bible, I will never drive drunk
again. - LESSON LEARNED IN
v DEAR DES MOINES: It’s not
easy to share a nightmare. Thank
you for doing just that.
I wonder how many people who
are reading this column have driv-
en drunk and made it home safely.
If I am talking to you, please thank
God for giving you a pass. And
don't press your luck.
Dear Ann Landers: Recently I
was arrested for shoplifting. Humil-
iating? Yes. But it was a relief. Let
me tell you why.
Some alcoholics and drug abusers
seek help, but often not until they
hit bottom. For me. “bottom" was
The shame of being handcuffed
and escorted to the security office
was awful. I could feel all those eyes
on me. I'm sure the people won-
dered why this nice-looking, well-
dressed lady would be stealing from
a store. Going to jail in a police car,
handcuffed, was another degrading
I started off as a “shopaholic." I
don't know when or why I began
to take things. I had enough money
to buy whatever I wanted. But
getting away with it was fun. I
rarely kept the stolen items. I gave
most of the things to the women at
work who couldn't afford any
I was given a stiff fine (no jail,
thank God, t^chusc it was my first
offense), put on probation and tofd
I could not go back i,nto that store.
I immediately went for counsel-
ing and now I Know my stealing
was a sickness. I urge anyone who
fits my description to please get
professional help before you get
caught. Your judge might not be as
kind as mine. - CERRITOS, CALIF.
DEAR CALIF.: You’ve said it all.
All I can say is, thank you.
DEAR READERS: If you, or
anyone you know, is getting mar-
ried. I recommend an excellent
book that has all the answers. Don't
dare get married without it. The
book is Dear Abby’s “Planning
