The signs of trouble around Radcliffe Haughton had been mounting. On Oct. 4, police investigated the 45-year-old from Brown Deer, Wis., on suspicion of slashing his wife's tires in the parking lot where she worked at the Azana Salon and Spa in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield. Police arrested Haughton, and his wife secured a temporary restraining order against him a few days later. Then, last Thursday, a court slapped Haughton with a four-year restraining order. Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus said Haughton returned to his wife's workplace Sunday morning with a gun and opened fire.

I enjoyed Kathleen Doheny's "Leave the Bad Habits Behind" [Healthy Traveler, March 26]. I have also been to several destination spas for vacations, and I agree that these visits can jump-start a change in lifestyle, plus rejuvenate one's soul. But my experience is that it is unrealistic to expect any sort of long-term miracle to occur at the end of a one- or two-week stay. Once a person returns to the real world, the "destination spa effect" tends to be short-lived and usually doesn't return until the next spa vacation.

Elvis was not cooperating. I wanted to raise his back left leg and clean his hoof. Elvis wanted to be left alone. I pinched, prodded and pulled. Elvis remained as rigid as a carousel charger. "Do you rely on charming people?" asked Wyatt Webb, a beefy, bearded, cowboy-therapist who was monitoring my futility. Huh? Sure. I guess so. "Charm's not going to work on a horse," he said. "Stop thinking, and commit to what you're going to do. Walk purposely to him. The last step same as the first.

The victims of an overnight shooting at a Korean health spa in suburban Atlanta were related to each other, supporting the police theory that the murder-suicide was the result of a family dispute. Five people, including the gunman, died in the Tuesday night shooting at the Su Jung Health Sauna in Norcross, Ga., about 15 miles from downtown Atlanta. Two of the victims were sisters of the gunman and the other two were their husbands, police confirmed on Wednesday. The fifth dead person was the shooter.

Massage therapy may hit the spot for people suffering from low back pain. A recent study in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine found that two types of massage--relaxation and structural--improved function and pain for people with low back pain, compared with regular treatment. The study included 401 men and women age 20 to 65 who had nonspecific lower back pain. Two-thirds were randomly assigned to two types of massage: relaxation, or Swedish, massage, non-therapeutic massage not intended for helping with pain; and structural massage, which often concentrates on soft tissue and pain issues.

Check out the "Spring Training Special Offers" at the Wigwam Golf Resort & Spa in Litchfield Park, five miles from the Dodgers' spring training stadium in Glendale, Ariz. The resort has already secured premium infield box seating for Dodgers fans. The deal: One package, called the "Camelback Ranch Spring Training Package: Dodgers," which includes two nights' lodging and two tickets, starts at $399 per room -- or $200 per person pretax, based on double occupancy. I found the package readily available for March 5-7, when the Dodgers play the Chicago White Sox. There are several date options for games March 5-31.
