WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- Michael J. Fox and Elizabeth Hurley were among the celebrities who played a benefit hockey game in honor of six firefighters killed last year in a warehouse fire.
The game Sunday raised $200,000, which will be split among the families of the victims and the Worcester Fire Department for new equipment.
The event, which also featured "Party of Five" actor Scott Wolf, actor Tim Robbins, "Cheers" star George Wendt, and former Boston Bruins star Bobby Orr, was organized by comedian Denis Leary. Leary's cousin, Jeremiah Lucey, was one of the men killed in the Dec. 3 blaze.
The game pitted the Hollywood Hockey Team against the Boston Bruins Alumni, but the teams traded players at halftime and the Bruins edged the Hollywood stars, 15-14.
The crowd gave a standing ovation to Fox, who has Parkinson's disease and played only in short spurts.
Hurley, Hollywood's assistant coach, earned a roar from the crowd when she came onto the ice in a purple outfit.
Loretta Lynn goes on tour
NEW YORK (AP) -- Loretta Lynn is back on tour with a new album after being out of the spotlight for more than a decade.
The famous country crooner recently released "Still Country," her first new work since 1988.
She disappeared from public life while caring for her late husband, Oliver V. "Mooney" Lynn, whom she wed when she was 13. He lost both legs due to complications from diabetes and died in 1996 after being bedridden for six years.
Lynn also lost singing partner Conway Twitty, friend Tammy Wynette and her oldest son, Jack Benny Lynn, who drowned in a river accident.
Lynn is also working on "Still Woman Enough," a sequel to her autobiographical "Coal Miner's Daughter," published in 1976.
"I've lived now and know that I can write a book and tell the happy things and the bad things," she said.
