FORMER MENUDO MEMBER INJURED IN TURNPIKE CRASH

Four members of the Coral Gables police department, including a former member of the 1980s band Menudo, were injured when the van they were riding in overturned on Florida's Turnpike. The officers were returning Saturday from, a competition in Orlando. Miguel Cancel, one of the injured officers, was a singer with Menudo in the 1980s, said Coral Gables police Lt. Paul Miyares. The officers -- Eduardo Orbe, 29, Edwin Pagan, 32, Eugenio Arencibia, 32, and Cancel, 37 -- were traveling south on the turnpike in Yeehaw Junction when the rear right tire blew on their van. The vehicle flipped into the northbound lanes, coming to rest on the northbound shoulder, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Arencibia and Cancel, who were riding in the back and not wearing seat belts, were ejected, the FHP said. Miyares said Cancel suffered a "severe injury to his left hand."

BARKER GIVES $1 MILLION TO DUKE LAW

Game show host Bob Barker, a longtime proponent of animal welfare, has donated $1 million to Duke Law School in Durham, N.C., to endow a program to teach animal rights law, the school announced Monday. The Bob Barker Endowment Fund for the Study of Animal Rights Law will support education in animal rights law, including opportunities for students to earn course credit on cases involving compliance with state animal cruelty laws and other forms of animal rights advocacy. It's similar to funds Barker has established in the past few years at law schools including those at Harvard, Stanford, Columbia and UCLA. "Animals need all the protection we can give them," Barker said. "We intend to train a growing number of law students in this area of the law in the hope that they will ultimately lead a national effort to make it illegal to brutalize and exploit these helpless creatures."
