Dec. 22 Boise State University, Boise, ID, 208-385-1766

Stay tuned for new additions to the tour schedule.

We were informed by Monkees manager Ward Sylvester last week that the
Monkees have been booked to play New Year’s Eve at the sports complex at
WaltDisneyWorld in Orlando, Florida. At the time, no one manning the
phones at any of the Disney information numbers had any information on the
event. But NOW we are told by the people at the sports complex that the
Monkees will play at a closed party for people who are staying at Disney
resorts and Good Neighbor hotels. The party is not being advertised and
fans can’t buy tickets to it. It’s designed to handle the overflow for the
thousands of people who want to celebrate New Year’s with Disney, but for
whom there’s no room in the theme parks. Apparently they turned away 20,000
people last New Year’s Eve because the parks were FULL. So this year,
they’ve made plans to have auxiliary parties going on that they can send
these extra people to. That’s why they don’t want to sell tickets, because
they know they’ll already have their hands full with the overflow crowds.
They call it their “guest recovery program”.
We asked if Monkees fans who stayed at a Disney resort or a Good Neighbor
hotel would be able to attend the Monkees show, and we was told that there
were no guarantees. No one knows how it will be decided which guests go to
which New Year’s Eve events—or if they do know, they’re not telling! We
were also told that Monkees fans who are not Disney guests who show up at
the sports complex on New Year’s Eve will be turned away.

As yet, no word about how long it’ll run for, or whether they’ll start again

Tobacco Industry Documents Released

.c The Associated Press

By LAURAN NEERGAARD

WASHINGTON (AP) – As recently as 1990, tobacco industry lawyers were seeking
$100,000 to study “characteristics of children” and how they decide whether
to smoke.

And back in 1967, the industry considered using the Monkees rock group as part
of a “youth heroes” advertising campaign.

The disclosures were part of a historic release of more than 800 documents
that tobacco companies had fiercely fought to keep secret – some since 1953 –
but that a congressional committee put on the Internet Thursday.

A quick review of hundreds of the pages shows the wide control that tobacco-
hired lawyers played over the decades as the industry struggled to refute
scientific evidence of smoking’s dangers. A Minnesota judge called the papers
evidence of the industry’s “conspiracy of silence and suppression of
scientific research.”

Lawyers met to review which scientific projects got funded, including the 1990
“adolescent morbidity project” that checked records of California children.
Attorneys pushed to identify and fund sympathetic scientists and worried that
some longtime industry researchers were “over the hill” or their “eyesight
is not good” – before awarding them thousands of dollars.

“Maybe the approach ought to be advocacy first and science second,” industry
attorney Sam Witt said in minutes of a 1981 meeting where lawyers debated how
to fund tobacco “special projects.”

“We wanted to protect it under the lawyers,” attorney Edwin Jacob added
about one particular project. “We did not want it out in the open.”

Giving attorneys scientific information allowed the industry to protect its
data under attorney-client confidentiality laws, but a Minnesota judge ruled
Wednesday that the attorneys lost that protection by committing fraud.

“The lawyers are thus the most powerful group in the smoking and health
situation,” Minnesota Judge Kenneth Fitpatrick wrote, citing one 1979 memo in
which Brown & Williamson counsel Kendrick Wells specifically outlined a plan
to wrap scientific information in attorney-client privilege.

The documents are the largest cache of industry papers ever released at once.
They come from the files of the Liggett Corp., which turned state’s evidence
last year to settle several lawsuits. But Liggett’s competitors had fought to
keep them sealed, even moving to appeal Fitzpatrick’s ruling Wednesday.

So Thursday, the head of the House Commerce Committee interceded and put the
papers on the Internet. Rep. Thomas Bliley, R-Va., had separately subpoenaed
the documents two weeks ago, arguing it was vital for Congress to see what the
industry knew about smoking’s dangers before lawmakers consider the proposed
$368 billion tobacco deal – which aims to settle 40 state lawsuits against the
industry. The deal would, among other things, protect companies from future
litigation, so Bliley said getting all potential evidence first was important.

Many of the papers are benign, such things as copies of congressional
testimony.

But others attracted immediate attention. For example, one document was a 1967
public relations proposal to use “youth heroes” like the Monkees, the
Supremes and sports figures John Unitas and Carl Yazstremski in commercials
about smoking issues. R.J. Reynolds told the industry meeting that it wouldn’t
participate, but the memo said the PR firm would prepare examples of the ads
for future industry consideration.

It should “come as no surprise that the tobacco companies needed and sought
advice of lawyers, given the adversarial environment of the last four
decades,” the industry said in a statement Thursday.

Companies insisted the papers were still protected, and declined to comment on
specific pages. Instead, they used Congress to end “continued controversy and
confrontation” and adopt the tobacco deal.

The government moved to crack down on tobacco in 1994, arguing it was an
addictive drug that had been targeted to minors. Documents released in that
probe have shown that tobacco companies knew years before the surgeon general
did that smoking was deadly and addictive. Cigarette makers argued that the
links were speculative and that they were furiously hunting scientific proof.

But the new papers add evidence that attorneys, not scientists, were in charge
of looking for a way out instead, said anti-tobacco attorney Richard Daynard.

The papers provide “pieces of the tapestry,” he explained. “It’s by no
means the whole picture, but there are tantalizing clues that the lawyers were
running this conspiracy that began in 1953 … to generate misleading
research, suppress accurate research and confuse the public.”

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., promised Senate Commerce Committee hearings early
next year to examine the papers.

But tobacco critics immediately cautioned that they are just the first among
millions still being kept secret. “Without releasing the remaining documents
to Congress, the tobacco industry can kiss any form of their settlement
goodbye,” said Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J.

Michael’s book “Neftoon Zamora” has been delayed a bit because he changed

aren’t sure of the release date, they’re “just saying sometime in ’98.” The
book will be accompanied by a book signing tour.

He is reportedly working on two movies in LA. Videoranch is trying to

and fans can’t buy tickets to it. It’s designed to handle the overflow for
the thousands of people who want to celebrate New Year’s with Disney, but
for whom there’s no room in the theme parks. Apparently they turned away
20,000 people last New Year’s Eve because the parks were FULL. So this
year, they’ve made plans to have auxiliary parties going on that they can
send these extra people to. That’s why they don’t want to sell tickets,
because they know they’ll already have their hands full with the overflow
crowds. They call it their “guest recovery program”.
We asked if Monkees fans who stayed at a Disney resort or a Good Neighbor
hotel would be able to attend the Monkees show, and we was told that there
were no guarantees. No one knows how it will be decided which guests go to
which New Year’s Eve events—or if they do know, they’re not telling! We
were also told that Monkees fans who are not Disney guests who show up at
the sports complex on New Year’s Eve will be turned away.

The Monkees expect to take a break from touring following their Far East
dates. They expect to resume touring in the U.S. in 1999. Meanwhile, look
for the guys to pursue solo projects. Davy is already signed on to a Teen
Idols tour with Peter Noone and Bobby Sherman; that tour is tentatively set
to run June, July, and August 1998 in the U.S. Tour dates will be
announced as they are scheduled.

Davy, Micky, and Peter are on the road with their back-up band while the
Monkees’ 30th Anniversary tour rolls on. Michael Nesmith is not joining them.

We were informed by Monkees manager Ward Sylvester in early December that
the Monkees have been booked to play New Year’s Eve at the sports complex
at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. At the time, no one manning the
phones at any of the Disney information numbers had any information on the
event. But a week later we were told by the people at the sports complex
that the Monkees will play at a closed party for people who are staying at
Disney resorts and Good Neighbor hotels. The party is not being advertised
and fans can’t buy tickets to it. It’s designed to handle the overflow for
the thousands of people who want to celebrate New Year’s with Disney, but
for whom there’s no room in the theme parks. Apparently they turned away
20,000 people last New Year’s Eve because the parks were FULL. So this
year, they’ve made plans to have auxiliary parties going on that they can
send these extra people to. That’s why they don’t want to sell tickets,
because they know they’ll already have their hands full with the overflow
crowds. They call it their “guest recovery program”.

a few dates coming up in the Los Angeles area; we’ll be posting those as
soon as we can confirm them.

The Miles Kimball Company, a mail order catalog from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, has a
set of three bean bag monkeys for sale. The description under the photo of the
toys starts “Hey, hey, we’re the monkeys! Make that the Beanbag Monkeys…..”
Interesting that it’s a set of three for sale.
