LONDON (AP) \u2014 London police say they have arrested a 35-year-old man suspected of hacking the iCloud account of Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, and stealing 3,000 photographs.

The Sun newspaper said Saturday it was contacted by a purported hacker seeking to sell the images for a minimum of 50,000 pounds ($65,000). It said the seller communicated using the pseudonym \"Crafty Cockney\" on an encrypted messaging service and sent sample photos showing Middleton being fitted for a wedding dress in advance of her planned 2017 nuptials.

The Sun said the hacker also claimed to possess Middleton's informal photos of sister Kate with her children, Princess Charlotte and Prince George, and naked images of her fianc\u00e9, James Matthews.

The Metropolitan Police says the man is being questioned in London.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Rihanna ran through her pop and R&B hits, Eddie Vedder partnered with Chris Martin and Kendrick Lamar was enthusiastic and energetic during his hour-long set at the Global Citizen Festival in New York.

Metallica, Ellie Goulding, Usher and Yandel also performed familiar songs Saturday at the free event on the Great Lawn in Central Park. The multi-hour show aired live on MSNBC.

Major Lazer kicked off the festival, performing hits such as \"Lean On\" and was backed by lively dancers. At one point they all wore New York Mets jerseys onstage. Demi Lovato, who replaced Selena Gomez, followed with strong singing.

Fans earned free tickets by promoting the importance of education. The event was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, Salma Hayek Pinault, Chelsea Handler, Priyanka Chopra and Hugh Jackman and his actress-wife Deborra-Lee Furness.

Rihanna closed the show with a number of her smash hits, from \"We Found Love\" to \"Umbrella\" to the recent \"Needed Me.\" Most of the performers thanked the feverish audience for doing acts of kindness to earn the tickets.

\"We got global citizens in the house tonight \u2014 I myself, I'm from Barbados so I came a long way,\" Rihanna said. \"There are people all over the globe that need help.\"

As fans waited for Rihanna to perform, Martin \u2014 who had just performed \u2014 came back onstage to stall. He sang Prince's \"Raspberry Beret\" while strumming the guitar, and freestyled new lyrics about why Rihanna was late, which earned laughs and applause from the crowd. He joked that the singer was doing her makeup and said he would perform the Prince song again.

Metallica earned one of the night's loudest ovations and Usher wore a black shirt that read, \"Silence is content.\"

The Global Citizen Festival is in its fifth year. Last year's event featured Michelle Obama, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, Beyonce and Pearl Jam.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) \u2014 Musician Stanley \"Buckwheat\" Dural Jr., who rose from a cotton-picking family in southwest Louisiana to introduce zydeco music to the world through his namesake band Buckwheat Zydeco, has died. He was 68.

His longtime manager Ted Fox told The Associated Press that Dural died Saturday. He had suffered from lung cancer.

Fox said the musician and accordionist died at 1:32 a.m. Louisiana time at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center in Lafayette, Louisiana. He gained fame by introducing zydeco music of southwest Louisiana to the world.

\"This is one of the world's true genius musicians. A completely natural musician who could just fit in in any scenario,\" Fox said.

As news of his death spread, friends from around the world paid their respects.

\"Buckwheat Zydeco embodied a genre and represented a community with his signature playing style that brought distinctly creole zydeco music to fans across the globe,\" said Neil Portnow, who heads The Recording Academy. \"The world lost a music heavyweight today.\"

Zydeco music was well known across southwest Louisiana where people would often drive for miles to small dancehalls where zydeco bands featuring an accordion and a washboard would rock the crowds for hours.

But Dural took zydeco music mainstream, launching a major-label album \u2014 the Grammy-nominated \"On a Night Like This,\" \u2014 with Island Records in 1987. He went on to jam with musical greats like Eric Clapton, play at former President Bill Clinton's inauguration and perform at the 1996 Olympics closing ceremony in Atlanta.

He jammed with Jimmy Fallon on the final episode of \"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.\" Fallon played the guitar backed up by the Roots while Buckwheat Zydeco rocked the accordion.

\"He brought zydeco to unprecedented new audiences,\" said Ben Sandmel, a music historian who wrote a book titled \"Zydeco!\" about the music.

Dural earned his nickname because he had braided hair when he was younger that resembled Buckwheat from The Little Rascals television show. Born Nov. 14, 1947 in Lafayette, Louisiana, Dural was one of 13 children. His father played the accordion but the younger Dural preferred listening to and playing rhythm & blues and learned to play the organ, his obituary said.

Sandmel said while Dural was internationally famous for his zydeco music he was also an accomplished R&B artist and a diverse musician.

By the late 1950s he was backing up musicians and eventually formed his own band. In 1976 he joined legendary zydeco artist Clifton Chenier's Red Hot Louisiana Band as an organist, launching an important musical turn in his career.

\"I had so much fun playing that first night with Clifton. We played for four hours and I wasn't ready to quit,\" he said in comments quoted in his obituary.

In 1978 he took up the accordion so closely associated with zydeco music and later formed his own band called Buckwheat Zydeco, his obituary said.

It was the 1987 Island Records five-record deal that eventually brought Dural to a wider audience, and he went on to tour with Clapton, record with artists such as Ry Cooper, Paul Simon, Dwight Yoakam and Willie Nelson.

Fox called him an \"old-fashioned showbiz professional\" who was always focused on giving the audience \u2014 regardless of either they were eight or 80,000-strong \u2014 a good time.

Fox described one evening in 1987 where Dural took the stage during a concert where legends Clapton, Ringo Starr and Phil Collins were already jamming. Playing a Hammond B3 \u2014 a multi-tiered organ \u2014 Dural got into a back-and-forth jam with Clapton, who eventually turned around, stuck out his hand to Dural and said: \"Hi! I'm Eric Clapton. Who are you?\"

The two went on to tour together, including a 12-night gig at London's Royal Albert Hall.

\"He had this incredible charisma both onstage and personally,\" Fox said. \"To the end of his days with all the stuff that he'd done, all the awards, he was still the same Stanley Dural Jr. who was picking cotton when he was 5-years-old.\"

Some people described Dural and his music as Cajun. The term generally refers to the French-speaking Catholics expelled from Nova Scotia by the British during the 1700's who eventually settled southwest Louisiana, although it's often used to refer more generically to French-speaking people in the area regardless of where they're from.

But Fox said while Dural loved Cajun music and often performed with Cajun musicians, he was very clear that he and his music were Creole, to the point where Fox said he even included in contracts language explaining that he was not Cajun.

Fox says his daughter Tomorrow Dural has created a fundraising campaign to help with medical and other expenses.

Dural is survived by his wife, Bernite Dural, and his five children.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) \u2014 Musician Stanley \"Buckwheat\" Dural Jr., who rose from a cotton-picking family in southwest Louisiana to introduce zydeco music to the world through his namesake band Buckwheat Zydeco, has died. He was 68.

His longtime manager Ted Fox told The Associated Press that Dural died Saturday. He had suffered from lung cancer.

Fox said the musician and accordionist died at 1:32 a.m. Louisiana time at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center in Lafayette, Louisiana. He gained fame by introducing zydeco music of southwest Louisiana to the world.

\"This is one of the world's true genius musicians. A completely natural musician who could just fit in in any scenario,\" Fox said.

As news of his death spread, friends from around the world paid their respects.

\"Buckwheat Zydeco embodied a genre and represented a community with his signature playing style that brought distinctly creole zydeco music to fans across the globe,\" said Neil Portnow, who heads The Recording Academy. \"The world lost a music heavyweight today.\"

Zydeco music was well known across southwest Louisiana where people would often drive for miles to small dancehalls where zydeco bands featuring an accordion and a washboard would rock the crowds for hours.

But Dural took zydeco music mainstream, launching a major-label album \u2014 the Grammy-nominated \"On a Night Like This,\" \u2014 with Island Records in 1987. He went on to jam with musical greats like Eric Clapton, play at former President Bill Clinton's inauguration and perform at the 1996 Olympics closing ceremony in Atlanta.

He jammed with Jimmy Fallon on the final episode of \"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.\" Fallon played the guitar backed up by the Roots while Buckwheat Zydeco rocked the accordion.

\"He brought zydeco to unprecedented new audiences,\" said Ben Sandmel, a music historian who wrote a book titled \"Zydeco!\" about the music.

Dural earned his nickname because he had braided hair when he was younger that resembled Buckwheat from The Little Rascals television show. Born Nov. 14, 1947 in Lafayette, Louisiana, Dural was one of 13 children. His father played the accordion but the younger Dural preferred listening to and playing rhythm & blues and learned to play the organ, his obituary said.

Sandmel said while Dural was internationally famous for his zydeco music he was also an accomplished R&B artist and a diverse musician.

By the late 1950s he was backing up musicians and eventually formed his own band. In 1976 he joined legendary zydeco artist Clifton Chenier's Red Hot Louisiana Band as an organist, launching an important musical turn in his career.

\"I had so much fun playing that first night with Clifton. We played for four hours and I wasn't ready to quit,\" he said in comments quoted in his obituary.

In 1978 he took up the accordion so closely associated with zydeco music and later formed his own band called Buckwheat Zydeco, his obituary said.

It was the 1987 Island Records five-record deal that eventually brought Dural to a wider audience, and he went on to tour with Clapton, record with artists such as Ry Cooper, Paul Simon, Dwight Yoakam and Willie Nelson.

Fox called him an \"old-fashioned showbiz professional\" who was always focused on giving the audience \u2014 regardless of either they were eight or 80,000-strong \u2014 a good time.

Fox described one evening in 1987 where Dural took the stage during a concert where legends Clapton, Ringo Starr and Phil Collins were already jamming. Playing a Hammond B3 \u2014 a multi-tiered organ \u2014 Dural got into a back-and-forth jam with Clapton, who eventually turned around, stuck out his hand to Dural and said: \"Hi! I'm Eric Clapton. Who are you?\"

The two went on to tour together, including a 12-night gig at London's Royal Albert Hall.

\"He had this incredible charisma both onstage and personally,\" Fox said. \"To the end of his days with all the stuff that he'd done, all the awards, he was still the same Stanley Dural Jr. who was picking cotton when he was 5-years-old.\"

Some people described Dural and his music as Cajun. The term generally refers to the French-speaking Catholics expelled from Nova Scotia by the British during the 1700's who eventually settled southwest Louisiana, although it's often used to refer more generically to French-speaking people in the area regardless of where they're from.

But Fox said while Dural loved Cajun music and often performed with Cajun musicians, he was very clear that he and his music were Creole, to the point where Fox said he even included in contracts language explaining that he was not Cajun.

Fox says his daughter Tomorrow Dural has created a fundraising campaign to help with medical and other expenses.

Dural is survived by his wife, Bernite Dural, and his five children.

Q: I had round-trip tickets to fly from Cleveland to Bangor, Maine, via Philadelphia on American Airlines recently. Three of the four flights were in first class. I paid a total of $957.

American made unrequested changes to my flights several times, resulting in a downgrade to economy class for all but one leg. There was no offer of a refund for the difference between the cost of the three first-class flights that I paid for and the one first-class flight that I received.

I contacted customer service, and they directed me to the refunds department. An airline representative told me to submit the request again after I completed the flights, which is not the response that I expected.

I submitted a request after my last flight, but after waiting several weeks and then resubmitting it, I\u2019ve received no response. I\u2019d like an apology and a refund of the fare difference. \u2014 John Rodda, Rocky River, Ohio

A: This one\u2019s simple. American Airlines sold you three flights in first class; it should have delivered them. If it didn\u2019t, it should have refunded the difference between economy class and first class on the day you purchased the tickets.

But that\u2019s not how airline math works. Airlines calculate the fare difference on an involuntary downgrade based on the price the day of the flight, not the day you booked the flight. As you probably know, the price of an airline ticket changes right until the moment of departure. The numbers work to the airline\u2019s advantage in a big way, because an economy-class ticket is much more expensive on the day of travel.

So the difference between first and economy class may be only a few dollars or, strangely, it may have a negative value. That\u2019s right, unbelievably, the economy-class fare to which you were \u201cdowngraded\u201d could cost more than your advance-purchase first-class ticket.

When we spoke, your estimate of the fare difference was about $200. By American\u2019s estimate, it was $112. That\u2019s airline math!

I have no idea why American ignored your repeated efforts to obtain a refund. You could have contacted a customer-service executive at the airline.

I list their names, email addresses and phone numbers on my consumer-advocacy site: elliott.org/company-contacts/american-airlines

I think this kind of airline math is morally wrong and opportunistic. But American is hardly alone. This is how virtually all airlines do it.

I contacted American on your behalf. It refunded the $112 fare difference.

It\u2019s not quite the $200 you were hoping for, but it\u2019s better than nothing.

Richard Shelton\u2019s new memoir is not about him.

It is about three women.

In \u201cNobody Rich or Famous: A Family Memoir,\u201d Shelton evocatively shares the stories of three generations:

Shelton will read a selection from \u201cNobody Rich or Famous\u201d at a book release event slated for 4-6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at the University of Arizona Poetry Center.

Shelton is a poet, author, and Regents\u2019 Professor emeritus at the UA. He established the Creative Writer\u2019s Workshop in the Arizona state prisons and is a former director of the Creative Writing Program and Poetry Center at the UA.

The three women kept journals, which storyteller Shelton uses as the framework for the three distinct yet integrated tales of his family and \u201chow it got that way.\u201d

Using stories to share history, as he did in his award-winning memoir \u201cGoing Back to Bisbee,\u201d Shelton tells a series of stories divided into three sections, one for each woman.

Shelton says the book, told in his elegant yet accessible prose and backed by research, explores the complexities of families living at the edge of poverty.

The book reflects people who need charity but are too proud to accept it, and the effects of poverty, such as alcoholism and strained relationships, Shelton says.

\u201cIt\u2019s a tribute to survival,\u201d Shelton says.

Shelton got the journals after his mother died, but says he held off writing the book until certain other people died because he did not want to offend.

His brother, for example. Shelton says his brother comes across badly in the book, but not as bad as it could have been.

Many of the stories have already been told in some of his poems, which are scattered among his 11 books of poetry.

It might be interesting to bob between the story in narration form and the poem, he says. He might read both an excerpt from the book and the corresponding poem during Saturday\u2019s event.

The overall message is positive, Shelton says. And a strain of hope runs through the entire book.

\u201cYou don\u2019t have to be rich and famous to be interesting,\u201d Shelton says.

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Some people will pay good money for anything involving the late Truman Capote.

Including his ashes.

Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles announced Saturday that Capote's ashes, contained in a Japanese wooden box have sold for $45,000.

That's well above the original estimate, which the auction house reported as $4,000.

The ashes are dated Aug. 28, 1984, days after the author of \"Breakfast at Tiffany's\" and \"In Cold Blood\" died at 59.

The ashes were long kept by Capote's close friend and ex-wife of Johnny Carson, Joanne Carson, who died last year.

This is the latest in a monthly series about what\u2019s going on at the Pima County Public Library.

Celebrate National Library Card Signup Month in good company by joining the nearly 387,000 Pima County cardholders who are reading, learning, doing, and dreaming at libraries today!

I will never forget the day I stepped onto the bookmobile in Northeastern Colorado. I was 8 years old and attending High Plains Elementary \u2014 a one-room schoolhouse with just 11 students.

My teacher, Ms. Korrey, had read to us from her own copy of Laura Ingalls Wilder\u2019s \u201cLittle House on the Prairie\u201d and I was desperate to read more of the series. I had read all of the books in our little school library, so you can imagine how mesmerized I was when Ms. Korrey told us that a bookmobile would be visiting us once a month and that it could bring the books we requested, for free!

That very first day I checked out \u201cThese Happy Golden Years.\u201d It didn\u2019t matter to me that it was the eighth book in the Little House series, I had to have more of Laura\u2019s story.

Sadly, I don\u2019t remember the bookmobile librarian. I do remember getting that magical card and the excitement I felt every month when it was bookmobile day. I had no idea on that very first day that the card I held in my hand would forever and daily change my life.

Not only did it open up the world of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Huck Finn, but that of King Arthur and Merlin, to name a few. I read biographies, mysteries like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, and westerns. Anything I could get my hands on, really.

When I was in seventh grade and attending the regional junior high school, I of course became a library aide so that I could spend an hour a day hanging out with the books during school time. Around the same time our English teacher took us to the Sterling Public Library in Sterling, Colorado.

It was then I realized how much power that magical card really held. I learned about doing research in magazines and newspapers, as well as books. I found myself wandering out of the children\u2019s area into the adult books. Everywhere I turned there were MORE books and more information that I wanted to soak up!

When I was in high school I found out that I could have cards for both the public library and the local community college. I spent hours upon hours in that small campus library pouring over journal articles and dreaming about going to college and an exciting future.

I truly believe it\u2019s because I felt so comfortable on that campus and in that library that I made a smooth and easy transition from my rural childhood to college life at Colorado State University. Once there, I made it to the library to study and eventually begin work in the Interlibrary Loan Department.

You might think it was an easy leap from those early years to a lifelong career in libraries. I actually thought about careers in medicine and healthcare, but always found myself coming back to libraries whenever I needed to make a change of location or job.

After working for PCPL for several years, I attended and graduated from the University of Arizona\u2019s School of Information Resources and Library Science (now School of Information). I\u2019ve been with the Library for 25 years.

I started as a customer service clerk, and just kept on moving throughout the system. One of my favorite jobs at the Library was when I worked on the bookmobile! I loved giving children their first library card and sharing that joy of opening up a world of possibilities for them. As a children\u2019s librarian, I was thrilled to visit schools and to share with those children the same joy I experienced in discovering all that the library had to offer.

As the Deputy Director for Strategic Initiatives, I have the privilege of making sure our library staff has the tools they need to create programs and services that meet the needs of everyone in our amazing community of Pima County.

Looking back to my first time on that bookmobile in Northeastern Colorado, I had no way of knowing that I would one day become a librarian. Nor did I know that a library card would not only give me access to knowledge and information, but to a career in service to the community; connecting people to others, information, and a safe place to grow in ways they never imagined possible.

This past year I have had the honor of representing libraries around the state as the President of the Arizona Library Association. I have seen firsthand how library cards and access to information are transforming individual lives every day.

Be it Storytime, Homework Help, Job Help, access to electronic resources, incredibly knowledgeable and friendly staff, gaining 21st century learning skills, or having opportunities to engage in their community \u2014 possessing a library card powers a world of possibilities!

WHAT: A bronze ship gun removed from a burning Confederate ship in 1865 sold for $12,870 at Bonhams San Francisco late last year. The gun clearly spoke to Civil War collectors. More precisely, the boarding cannon with a 24-inch tapered bronze tube and a bore of 1 5/8 inches spoke to collectors of the Confederacy, plus maritime and arms collectors.

MORE: Lacquered onto the piece is a note of provenance written in 1928 stating that \u201cThis small bronze boarding/cannon was taken from the/burning ship CSS Patrick Henry.\u201d It continues that Nathaniel E. Venable of Texas, a member of the 23rd Virginia Volunteers in the Confederate Marines and a recruiter in Marine service, rescued the gun.

CSS Patrick Henry was once a passenger and freight steamer called \u201cYorktown\u201d that ran between Richmond, Virginia, and New York. The ship was seized when Virginia seceded, and she figured in the battle of Hampton Roads, Virginia. The vessel was burned in 1865 by Confederates when Richmond was evacuated.

SMART COLLECTORS KNOW: The gun is a crossover collectible, therefore of interest to history buffs, fans of the Confederacy, maritime enthusiasts and Civil War plus arms collectors. That\u2019s a large pool of potential bidders.

HOT TIP: Civil War artifacts have become increasingly hard to find intact. With collectors fighting for the rare and finest pieces, prices have zoomed. Confederate items are particularly scarce, as lack of resources meant that fewer goods were made and many were made badly. Items were used until they fell apart, and that makes what remains all the more valuable.

BOTTOM LINE: A catalog note reads that \u201cCasting flaws present on the tube would suggest Confederate manufacture.\u201d

This gun is a survivor.

Daniel Martin Diaz wanted the devil.

Robin Westenhiser couldn\u2019t believe her luck when she picked the watermelon.

And Ron Kovatch just wanted something out of his comfort zone.

The Tucson artists are among 40 who have contributed pieces to the Galer\u00eda Senita\u2019s upcoming Loter\u00eda! de Tucson exhibit. It will feature 54 11-by-14-inch pieces, each based on a different card in the traditional Mexican game of chance, Loter\u00eda.

\u201cI was trying to come up with a show that was different,\u201d says Kevin M. Pawlak, who co-owns the gallery within the Arte de la Vida shop with James Goodreau. \u201cI wanted to do something around Day of the Dead, and that was Mexican themed.\u201d

Loter\u00eda cards each have a number, but it is the images that people pay attention to in the game, which is similar to bingo.

Pawlak put the word out through social media and the artist grapevine. While the bulk of the artists signing on are from Arizona, there are three from outside the country participating.

His original thought was to have the artists select which ones they wanted to do. \u201cBut then we realized we would be stuck with the same six or seven images,\u201d he says.

So he decided to extend the idea of chance, put a deck of Loter\u00eda cards in a hat and drew the card they would interpret.

That\u2019s how Diaz, who is internationally known for his images that are inspired by saints and science, was assigned card 43, the bell.

\u201cI thought, \u2018Oh, what can I do,\u2019\u201d recalls Diaz. \u201cI thought I would ask to trade with someone for something interesting, like the devil.\u201d

Instead, he kept the card and allowed it to take him in a new direction: He\u2019s thinking he\u2019ll take on painting a series of Loter\u00eda cards.

Women are often the subject of Liz Vaughn\u2019s art, so when she drew Number 17, the mandolin, she knew just what to do. \u201cMy first reaction was I could make that into a woman.\u201d

Some artists grumbled with their assignment, others delighted. But all of them came through with interpretations that will fill the wall of the gallery.

Take a look at some of the works that make up the show\u2019s Loter\u00eda deck. All artists are from Tucson unless otherwise noted.

Alec Dempster

Toronto

No. 6, la sirena, the mermaid, linocut

Loter\u00eda cards are nothing new to Dempster \u2014 he has created two complete sets, with books published on each. One, \u201cLoter\u00eda Jarocha,\u201d is based on son jarocho, folk music from Mexico\u2019s Veracruz region. The other, \u201cLoter\u00eda Huasteca,\u201d recreates his journey to La Huasteca, Mexico, with cards depicting everything from folk tales to salamanders. Dempster was happy that he got the mermaid. \u201cSome of the other (cards) might not have been as inspiring,\u201d he says. His biggest challenge in creating his piece? \u201cI knew that other artists would be participating, so I wanted to do my best in order to stand out.\u201d

Carolyn King

No. 7, la escalera, the ladder, mixed media on panel

\u201cA ladder turned sideways is a bridge,\u201d says King, who lived in Mexico for more than two decades. \u201cIt\u2019s personally meaningful to me because I live a life of bridging between the States and Mexico.\u201d

But this image of the ladder propped up against the wall that separates our country from Mexico, and with a small image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, has an even deeper meaning.

\u201cIn my piece, I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for her protection of two beloved men in my life who crossed the border illegally in their younger days,\u201d says King.

Melo Dominguez

No. 13, el gorrito, the bonnet, Bic pen on muslin

Dominguez was flummoxed about how to give a contemporary interpretation to her card. \u201cI was wondering, \u2018What the hell am I going to do?\u2019\u201d she recalls. What she did: an iconic image of the late rapper Tupac Shakur, his head wrapped in a bandana and the words \u201cthug life\u201d tattooed across his belly. She\u2019s a painter, but the answer to what to do sent her back to her earlier days of using a pen and doing portraits. And it stretched her imagination. \u201cIt\u2019s always nice to critically think about how to interpret something,\u201d she says.

Rachel Slick

No. 21, la mano, the hand, mixed media

Slick\u2019s art traditionally includes the creation of milagros in which hands are central, so this challenge resonated with her. \u201cFor me, the hand is such a symbol of ability and strength; I usually represent them that way,\u201d she said. While researching her card, she discovered that the hand is generally a thief\u2019s hand. \u201cThat went into my process in creating the piece,\u201d she says. \u201cIt somewhat changed the way I was approaching it.\u201d And that eye? \u201cIt\u2019s about the all-seeing of the thief, and being a spy.\u201d

Kyle Johnston

No. 26, el negrito, the little black one, mixed media assemblage

Johnston knew nothing about the game, so he did some extensive research when he drew this card. \u201cWhen I started to put the piece together, I was cautious about not being offensive,\u201d he says. \u201cI think the card is kind of anachronistic.\u201d The original card has a dapper black man with a hat, a cane and a rose in his lapel. It has sometimes been called the Sammy Davis Jr. card. Johnston took the \u201clittle\u201d literally and found a small black figure slipped into a sort of shadow box. A metal rose is a nod to the one worn by the figure in the original.

Robin Westenhiser

No. 28, la sand\u00eda, the watermelon, acrylic on birch board

This card was perfect for her, says Westenhiser. \u201cIt was a shock when I got it, but I was pretty happy because I very often include watermelons in my paintings.\u201d Westenhiser\u2019s paintings are whimsical and bright. But she also paints in a much bigger size, so she was forced to compact her usual images. \u201cI had fun with this,\u201d she says. \u201cI knew I wanted to make a girl that loves watermelon, a goofy girl with watermelon.\u201d

Ron Kovatch

No. 40, el alacr\u00e1n, the scorpion, mixed media

Kovatch was intrigued with the idea of creating a piece based on a card. \u201cI liked the challenge of taking on something I have little control over,\u201d he says, explaining that what he paints is dictated by his imagination, not an image on a card. He describes his abstract works as \u201cslash and burn,\u201d so creating the scorpion took him out of his comfort zone. Since Kovatch\u2019s recent work has leaned toward the abstract, he infused that aesthetic into the card. \u201cThat work was about the physical process of scribbling with great urgency and pressure, free of any burden of narrative,\u201d Kovatch said in an email about creating the scorpion. \u201c... I applied this physical process, basically mimicking the Loter\u00eda card of the scorpion. El alacran is an image loaded with symbolism, feared by most, a strange and eccentric, enigmatic and wonderful exoskeleton. I simply reinterpreted the Loter\u00eda card in my raw and rugged style which pays homage to Abstract Expressionism.\u201d

Daniel Martin Diaz

No. 43, la campana, the bell, oil and gouache on wood

As he struggled to think of how to interpret the card artistically, Diaz remembered sitting in a little village in the Alps listening to the church bells ring in his village, then the next and the next. He was once told that church bells are rung to destroy evil spirits. \u201cEverywhere the bells resonate, they are shattering evil,\u201d says Diaz. \u201cThat idea spoke to me.\u201d He had been studying Russian propaganda posters when he was asked to do the card, and he decided to use that aesthetic in creating it. \u201cI was conflicted, but once I finished it I was really happy with it. \u2026 It made me do something I never would have done; now I\u2019m anxious to start on a whole deck.\u201d

DETROIT (AP) \u2014 A birthday celebration is taking place for Ford's Model T in Detroit.

Sunday's free event is in the courtyard of the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant museum and includes Model T rides, cupcakes and Faygo pop.

The three-story brick factory was where the first of auto industry pioneer Henry Ford's Model Ts were built and was the automaker's home from 1904 to 1910. About 12,000 Model Ts were built there between 1908 and 1910, when production was shifted elsewhere.

The Model T became the symbol of low-cost, reliable transportation. Before production ended in 1927, Ford Motor Co. sold more than 15 million Model Ts.

Fill up the tank, get that bus pass, inflate your bicycle tires, put on your walking shoes. Fall garden tours are coming in October.

GOING GREEN

Kathleen and Mike Marron were new Tucsonans about a year ago when they bought their small north-side home.

\u201cI\u2019d never gardened in the desert before,\u201d says Kathleen, an Ohio transplant who originally wanted to turn her pea-gravel-covered backyard into a flower-filled garden she saw in a Sunset magazine picture.

Then she spoke with someone at Watershed Management Group, which is holding its annual fall home tour Oct. 1. \u201cThey said that none of that was native and sustainable on their own,\u201d she recalls.

Wanting to be responsible Tucson gardeners, the couple worked with the organization to shape the land in the tiny backyard so that rainwater runs along a modest, rock-lined channel where plants grow inside and along it.

They wedged rainwater receptacles between their house and the neighbor\u2019s fence to collect 1,050 gallons of water from the solar-paneled roof. A hose connected to the receptacles allows them to water plants as needed.

Underground piping guides water from the laundry to tree basins.

Together, these efforts have allowed many plants to thrive solely on rain and gray water: queen\u2019s wreath vine, barrel cactus, a peach tree, a sweet lime tree, a chiltepin bush and side-oats grama grass.

The landscape fosters volunteers, too, including a desert tobacco that\u2019s over 5 feet tall and some desert marigolds.

The only time they turn on the drip irrigation is when they\u2019re away for a few days.

Marron says she\u2019s learned several tricks about watering that save resources, including responding to seasonal changes.

\u201cI know now that these plants go dormant in the winter,\u201d she says, \u201cand I don\u2019t need to water them.\u201d

Marron hopes tour visitors will get some ideas from her small landscape.

\u201cI hope they can think of creative ways to use their spaces,\u201d she says, \u201cand create green space that will cool Tucson and replenish the aquifer.\u201d

The tour also will highlight composting bins and toilets, wildlife habitat, shade oases and uses for recyclable materials.

BICAS will lead a guided bicycle tour of five stops and hold a lunch at Watershed Management\u2019s Living Lab.

VEGGIE GARDENING

The fairly new edible garden for Pascua Yaqui seniors will show off the fruits \u2014 and veggies \u2014 of community labor during a tour Oct. 1.

The 10-bed community garden at the tribe\u2019s senior center has been growing produce since spring 2015, says Pete C. Rodriguez, one of the volunteers who tend the garden.

Some elder tribal members have done some planting, and a slew of volunteers has been taking care of and harvesting the bounty, which is used by the senior center.

Organizers hope to expand the use of the garden by the general tribal community, as well as get the seniors more involved in gardening, Rodriguez says.

The tour will highlight growing gourds that, when dried and carved, are important accessories in Yaqui cultural ceremonies. Gourd carvings, rattles and musical instruments will be displayed. Yaqui artist Louis David Valenzuela will be on hand to show his gourd works.

RITA RANCH GARDENS

As an avid snorkler, Lance Belhumeur loves the look of coral reefs.

The manufacturing project manager also is a wannabe landscape designer.

\u201cI\u2019ve always thought it would be a great profession,\u201d says Lance, whose garden is among at least 10 that will be on the Rita Ranch Areawide Fall Garden Tour Oct. 29.

\u201cI\u2019ve always loved landscapes and landscaping.\u201d

He combined his two hobbies to create a reef-like garden in the backyard of the home he and his wife, Anna, had built two years ago.

Lady slipper, small agaves, aloe and Autumn Joy sedum are among the 100 or so plants that surround a fountain, which provides watery sounds.

Lance and Anna themselves built the well-ordered backyard, the 10th landscape Lance has designed by himself. \u201cI do all the manual labor and leave all the design elements to him,\u201d Anna jokes.

The couple divided the yard into dining, cooking and gathering spaces. A trampoline and artificial turf area provide recreational space for their four sons. Large rocks define the garden beds.

Two other garden areas include a pomegranate and a fig tree, which Anna wanted, and roses, a nod to Lance\u2019s mother\u2019s love of the flowers.

Lance focuses on perennial flowering species, which live longer than annuals. If a plant dies, he will find a different species as a replacement.

He\u2019s not inclined to baby plants to keep them alive. He calls that philosophy \u201cbeauty by attrition.\u201d

The neighborhood tour also includes a plant sale, pumpkin-carving contest and a guided bicycle tour.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Bill Nunn, a veteran character actor whose credits ranged from the \"Spider-Man\" movie franchise to such Spike Lee films as \"Do the Right Thing\" and \"He Got Game,\" has died.

His wife, Donna, said Nunn died Saturday at his home in Pittsburgh. He was 63 and had been battling cancer.

Nunn was the son of a prominent Pittsburgh Steelers scout, also named Bill Nunn, and was briefly a ballboy for the NFL team. He broke through in movies in the late 1980s, first in Lee's \"School Daze,\" then in the Oscar-nominated \"Do the Right Thing,\" as the ill-fated Radio Raheem, who dies when choked by police officers during a street brawl.

Nunn went on to appear in dozen of films and TV programs, including \"Spider-Man\" and \"Sister Act.\"
