WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Boston Police say a 19-year-old college student wanted in the Boston Marathon bombings is in custody after a manhunt that left the city virtually paralyzed and his older brother and accomplice dead.
Police announced via Twitter that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (JOH’-kahr tsahr-NY’-ev) was in custody. His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan, was killed Friday in a furious attempt to escape police.
The brothers are suspects in Monday’s marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. The men are also suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer in his vehicle late Thursday.
Authorities in Boston had suspended all mass transit and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect went on.
Crowds gathered after a nearly 28 hour lockdown to applaud and cheer the Boston area authorities.
Longtime family friend Joe Petro III says the Ohio native died Thursday evening at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes.
Winters was a master of improvisational comedy, with a grab bag of eccentric personalities and facial expressions. Characters such as the dirty old lady Maude Frickert were based on people Winters knew growing up in Ohio.
In the mid-1950s, “The Jonathan Winters Show” pioneered the then-new videotape technology on to do stunts like showing up as two characters on screen together.
He was introduced to millions of new fans in 1981 as the son of Williams’ goofball alien in the final season of ABC’s “Mork and Mindy.”

Welcome to my new weekly / semi monthly / whenever I get to it feature… The Obligatory Video of the Day. I kinda dig this song
(from http://themowglis.net) The Mowgli’s are a Southern Californian band with a Southern Californian soul. The eight-piece started in a garage in the San Fernando Valley where many of them grew up. They’re bound together by an intricate social web that dates back to childhood and their harmonies carry a message of universal love and togetherness. Brother and sisterhood. It’s all about unity, having a good time, and the idea that humanity can achieve a higher level consciousness.
I’ve seen these guys live. I’m telling you they ROCK! If you’re a fan of great rock and roll, you’ll dig this show. Get your tickets at the Nebraskaland Days Website and if you don’t go, don’t say I didn’t tell ya to!
Note the politically correct shout out to one of the longest running Rock Radio Stations in the country, WMMR in Philadelphia.. (Philly’s rock station since 1968)
