Jeanne Ruviella-Knorr passed out bright green tennis balls to the second-graders sitting in four rows on the floor of the William Paca/Old Post Road Elementary School music room and then turned on a CD of Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa. The pupils rolled the tennis balls to the sound of flutes; tapped the tops, pretending to play piccolos; mimicked a trombone slide; and bounced the tennis balls to the drumbeat. "Tennis balls are just one of the things that I use to engage the children in creative improvisational musical activities," Ruviella-Knorr said.

LA CROSSE, Wis. -- At 79, Al Knorr could fill his days in the recliner with televised junk food, watching Oprah Winfrey and Judge Judy and yelling "big money, big money!" when Wheel of Fortune comes on. But twice every weekday, Knorr dons his black snowmobile mittens and insulated shirt, and heads to the busiest intersections in town, where he stands as a solitary street-corner sentry against the war in Iraq. Knorr's large cardboard "Stop the war" placard on a wooden broomstick draws honks and thumbs-up signals from some rush-hour drivers and abuse from others, such as the guy in the white pickup truck who rolled down his window and made an obscene gesture.
