Water for Elephants By Sara Gruen When 23-year-old Jacob Jankowski learns that his parents have been killed in a car crash, leaving him penniless, he drops out of Cornell veterinary school and parlays his expertise with animals into a job with the circus, where he cares for a menagerie of exotic creatures. He also falls in love with Marlena, one of the show's star performers - a romance complicated by Marlena's husband, the unbalanced, sadistic circus boss who beats both his wife and the animals Jankowski cares for. Gruen skillfully humanizes the midgets, drunks, rubes and freaks who populate her book.

An overturned pickup truck was one of six vehicles smashed together or tipped over at a Bel Air car dealership last week after someone gained access to a backhoe being used in nearby construction. A patrol officer noticed a truck on its side early Tuesday at Schaeffer & Strohminger Dodge during a routine patrol. Upon further investigation, the officer discovered five other 2006 Dodge pickups with damage, according to police. Employees said other equipment had been moved as well. "We found it to be completely bizarre," said Joe Jankowski, chief executive officer of Schaeffer & Strohminger.
