Miss Lohan, 25, now has to work 14 days at the morgue and attend five therapy sessions before the judge ends her probation on a 2007 drunken driving case that has dogged Miss Lohan for years.

She is due back in court on March 29 for what could be her final court appearance if she stays out of trouble.

Miss Lohan would remain on informal probation for a case filed after she took a necklace without permission in January 2011 but would no longer have to report to a probation officer or appear in court for frequent updates.

“You seem to be getting your life back on track,” Judge Sautner told her.

Court rules against widow over rights to Miller’s music

A federal appeals court has said the widow of country music legend Roger Miller doesn’t own the rights to some of his biggest hits, including “King of the Road.”

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday that Sony/ATV Music Publishing owns the renewal copyrights to the songs the artist published in 1964. In addition to “King of the Road,” the songs include for “Dang Me,” “Chug-A-Lug” and “You Can’t Roller Skate in a Buffalo Herd.” The decision struck down a lower court’s ruling in widow Mary Miller’s favor.

She has been in a years-long legal battle with Sony over the rights to her husband’s music. Miller died from cancer in 1992 at the age of 56. He was inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1995.

Artist Christo postpones plan for Arkansas River

Christo, the artist famous for wrapping world landmarks, announced Tuesday he is postponing for a year his next project, suspending silvery fabric over the Arkansas River, Agence France-Presse reports.

“Over the River” will see eight sections of the river covered with a total of 5.9 miles of billowing aluminized panels that will change shade over the course of each day.

It was to be in place between Salida and Carson City in Colorado in August 2014, but after various scheduling changes, the artist has decided to delay the project until August 2015.

“Christo understands that this news may be disappointing to thousands of local residents and many thousands of art enthusiasts around the world who are looking forward to experiencing ‘Over The River,’ ” he said in a statement.

“Nonetheless, this change will result in a better informed public and an improved installation schedule.”

Formal approval for the ambitious undertaking was given last November by the Bureau of Land Management, the federal agency within the Department of the Interior that administers public lands in the United States.
