March 28, 1999 | A roundup of unusual stories from Times wire services:
If Van Gogh Had Owned a Dryer . . . : Canadian artist Bill Gardner can't argue with critics who dismiss his work as pure fluff--because that's exactly what it is. Gardner is making a name for himself with prized portraits and still-lifes made exclusively of lint from his clothes dryer. The 42-year-old Calgary artist's works include uncanny lint likenesses of Britain's Queen Elizabeth and O.J. Simpson.

Osama bin Laden built a shadow air force to support his terrorist activities, using Afghanistan's national airline, a surplus U.S. Air Force jet and clandestine charters. Long before suicide teams crashed hijacked airliners into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11, sympathetic foreign officials and wealthy supporters gave Bin Laden access to planes to help him forge, arm and transport his terrorist network.

DOLLY PARTON has sold her home in the Hollywood Hills. Escrow closed a few days ago on the three-bedroom house for close to its $2-million asking price, according to public records. Parton kicked off a 70-city concert tour with Kenny Rogers in late February with a weeklong engagement at the new Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. She is expected to find a pied-a-terre in Los Angeles after she returns. Parton has a home in Tennessee, where she lives most of the time, her publicist said.

Billy Higgins says he's too lazy to do wind sprints. He refuses to lift weights. And, unlike many of the top players in the U. S. Tennis Assn. Men's 45 Hardcourt Championships this week, Higgins will offer only three quick words when asked of his on-court strengths. "I haven't any," he said. Higgins, 45, and the tournament's No. 16 seeded player, seems to believe these words. But no one else does.

At 6:50 a.m., 10 minutes before the polls even opened and 12 minutes before the sun came up, there were 85 people lined up in 20-degree weather outside McKelvie Middle School, waiting to vote. Cars were backed up half a mile for a parking space. The pint-sized Bedford Police Department, which protects and preserves this New England town of 15,000, put eight officers on the job just to manage the traffic.

WATCH BILL GARDNER CAREFULLY He's the New Hampshire secretary of state ( www.sos.nh.gov), the man sworn to preserve the New Hampshire first-in-nation primary tradition (state law requires that it fall before any other state primary). In the scramble of states to vote earlier, Michigan has set a Jan. 15 date, so it seems New Hampshire's polling will have to be before then. But Gardner hasn't committed to a date yet. (Meanwhile, Wyoming has set a delegate-selection convention for Jan. 5.

One of the great things about the Iowa caucuses is the event's quirky Hey, kids, let's put on a show quality. Candidates do indeed still shag voter questions in intimate settings, addressing audiences of a dozen or fewer after navigating to the front  around tables laden with home-baked cookies and Jell-O salad. (At least that's the case for minor candidates before they become major; see Santorum, Rick.)  But the downside of what amounts to an amateur production surfaced in the last 24 hours with reports calling into question Mitt Romney's astonishingly thin eight-vote victory Tuesday night.

Defenseman Mike O'Connell scored his 10th and 11th goals of the season and the Boston Bruins turned in an outstanding defensive effort in front of goalie Pete Peeters Monday night to surprise the Montreal Canadiens, 3-1, at Boston. The Bruins, 5-3-1 in their last nine games despite consecutive losses last week, outshot Montreal, 38-24, in defeating the Adams Division leaders for the third time in five meetings. The fourth-place Bruins moved within seven points of the Canadiens.
