   'I LOVE LUCY' C0- CREATOR, BOB CARROLL JR., DEAD AT 87

Bob Carroll Jr., who co-created the classic sitcom "I Love 
Lucy" and worked on all 180 of its episodes, died in his home 
in Los Angeles. He was 87. Carroll had been in ill health for 
the past few weeks, Zap2it.com said. Carroll first teamed with 
Lucille Ball on her radio show "My Favorite Husband." Then 
Carroll, writing partner Madelyn Pugh Davis and writer Jess 
Oppenheimer co-created "I Love Lucy" in 1951. The show ran 
through 1957, setting the situation comedy template filming in 
front of a live audience and selling reruns into syndication. 
Carroll worked with Ball on several shows after "I Love Lucy" 
ended, including "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour," "The Lucy Show," 
"Here's Lucy" and "Life With Lucy." He and Davis also co-wrote 
the script for the feature film "Yours, Mine and Ours," which 
starred Ball and Henry Fonda, and worked on other television 
comedies, including "The Mothers-in-Law" and "Alice." In 1992, 
the Writers Guild of America honored Carroll and Davis with 
its Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award for television writing. 
Carroll also was nominated for two Emmys.

      SIDNEY SHELDON, BEST SELLING AUTHOR, DEAD AT 89 

Sidney Sheldon, the best-selling author who won an Oscar and 
a Tony and created popular TV shows, died of pneumonia in a 
Rancho Mirage, Calif., hospital. Sheldon, 89, understood 
popular tastes, which fed a string of romantic and suspense-
filled books that made him a perennial best-seller, The Los 
Angeles Times said. His novels usually centered on glamour 
and intrigue, which helped define them as easy-to-read page-
turners. His writing talent went beyond books. His script for 
"The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" won him a 1948 Academy 
Award for original screenplay. Sheldon was also a screenwriter 
for the musicals "Easter Parade" and "The Barkleys of 
Broadway." Sheldon wrote half a dozen plays for Broadway. His 
biggest was the musical "Redhead," which earned him a Tony for 
co-writing the book. He wrote for the small screen, writing 
episodes for two hit comedies he created -- "The Patty Duke 
Show" and "I Dream of Jeannie." He also created the glamorous, 
globe-trotting "Hart to Hart." Sheldon, who died Tuesday, is 
survived by his wife, Alexandra Kostoff, a daughter, two 
grandchildren and a brother.

      BLUES DRUMMER, CHICO CHISM, DEAD AT 79

Singer-drummer Chico Chism, who entertained blues lovers for 
decades, died in a care facility in Phoenix. He was 79. Chism 
suffered a stroke in 2002 and had experienced declining 
health since, the Arizona Republic said Monday. "For a number 
of years, Chico was the blues in Phoenix," Kyle Deibler, 
president of the Phoenix Blues Society, told the newspaper. 
"He was our link to the past. Every (touring) blues artist 
who has come through here has paid their respects to Chico." 
Chism, a veteran of the Chicago blues scene, fronted a band 
called the Flamekeepers for the past year, but declining 
health had limited his time onstage. He played with such 
musicians as Sunnyland Slim and Willie Kent and  Eddie Shaw. 
The drummer recorded with Bo Diddley, R.L. Burnside, Jimmy 
Rogers, Henry Gray, Louisiana Red, Pinetop Perkins and others 
in sessions organized by harmonica player Corritore. Chism, 
who died Sunday, is survived by a daughter.

         ASTRONOMER, DONALD OSTERBROCK, DEAD AT 82

Donald Osterbrock, former director of Lick Observatory in 
California and author of a textbook on gaseous nebulae, has 
died at 82. Osterbrock suffered a fatal heart attack on Jan. 
11, his family told The New York Times. Osterbrock's first 
major contribution to astronomy occurred while he was a 
graduate student at the University of Chicago in the early 
1950s. He was part of a team that traced the spiral shape of 
the Milky Way. After several years as a professor at the 
University of Wisconsin, Osterbrock became director of Lick 
Observatory on Mount Hamilton in 1973. He remained in that 
position until 1981 and served as a professor at the 
University of California in Santa Cruz from 1973 to 1992. 
Osterbrock's textbook, "Astrophysics of Gaseous Nebulae and 
Active Galactic Nuclei" (1989), was published in 1989. A 
revised edition with astronomer Gary Ferland came out in 2006.
