Evangelist Alamo sentenced to 175 years for sex crimes

TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - Evangelist Tony Alamo used his stature as a self-proclaimed prophet to force underage girls into sham marriages with him, controlling his followers with their fears of eternal suffering.

But the federal judge who sentenced Alamo on Friday to 175 years in prison for child sexual abuse warned of another kind of justice awaiting the aging evangelist, whose secretive, guarded West Coast headquarters remains tucked in the rugged canyons along Sierra Highway north of Saugus - a church and a scattered network of compounds.

Review: '2012'

It's not so much that the Earth is destroyed, but that it's done so thoroughly. "2012," the mother of all disaster movies (and the father and the extended family), spends half an hour on ominous setup scenes (scientists warn, strange events occur, prophets rant and, of course, a family is introduced) and then unleashes two hours of cataclysmic special events hammering the Earth relentlessly.

Review: 'Pirate Radio'

Before we get to the movie, let's assume you're near a computer that has iTunes. Go to "radio," look under "alternative rock," and go down to Radio Caroline. I'll tell you why in a moment. Don't turn it up so loud that it drowns out my review.

Send a message

Early this morning I went into my garden and picked up the Sunday morning paper, and was greeted with the headline that the House passed the most sweeping health-care plan since the creation of Medicare 44 years ago. This is the first time in more than a hundred years that Congress has had the moral fortitude to pass a comprehensive health insurance reform.

Father's Day gifts from the heart, not the wallet

On Father's Day, I gave 40 small children at church paper ties. I asked them to write or draw words of wisdom from their fathers. They looked confused so I explained. I said, "Write or draw what your father tells you. What advice does he give you?" They wrote and colored vigorously for a few minutes until I asked someone to share.

How to make this summer the best yet

Summer is a time for lemonade, swimsuits and sunscreen. Days are longer, and no school means there is more time to spend together as a family. Every year, I have set a goal to accomplish a list of things I want to do over the course of the summer with my family.
