In a series of images taken from video, from left to right, a passenger jet approaches the World Trade Center today as smoke billows from one of its twin towers, which had already been struck by another jet; a ball of fire explodes from the second tower, hidden behind the first, after the airliner crashed into it; and smoke fills the New York skyline after the first tower collapsed. Minutes later, the second tower also collapsed. The planes were believed to be hijacked U.S. airliners.

TERROR

People run from the collapsing World Trade Center this morning after each of its twin towers was struck by a plane.

Attack razes Trade Center; Pentagon hit. NEW YORK (AP) — In one of the most audacious attacks ever against the United States, terrorists crashed two airliners into the World Trade Center in a deadly series of blows today that brought down the twin 110story towers. A plane also slammed into the Pentagon as the government itself came under attack. Thousands could be dead or injured, a high-ranking New York City police official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Authorities had been trying to evacuate those who work in the twin towers when the glass-and-steel skyscrapers came down in a thunderous roar within about 90 minutes after the crashes, which took place minutes apart around 8 a.m. Missouri time. But many people were thought to have been trapped. About 50,000 people work at the Trade Center, and tens of thousands of others visit every day. American Airlines initially said the Trade Center was hit by two of its planes, both hijacked, carrying a total of 156 people. But the airline later said that was unconfirmed. Two United airliners with a total of 110 aboard also crashed — one outside Pittsburgh, the other in a location not immediately identified. “This is perhaps the most audacious terrorist attack that’s ever taken place in the world,” said Chris Yates, an aviation expert at Jane’s Transport in London. “It takes a logistics operation from the terror group involved that is second to none. Only a very small handful of terror groups is on that list. ... I would name at the top of the list Osama bin Laden.” President George W. Bush ordered a fullscale investigation to “hunt down the folks who committed this act.” Within the hour, the Pentagon took a direct, devastating hit from a plane. The fiery crash collapsed one side of the five-sided structure. The White House, the Pentagon and the Capitol were evacuated along with other federal buildings in Washington and New York.

Authorities in Washington immediately called out troops, including an infantry regiment. The Situation Room at the White House was in full operation. Authorities went on alert from coast to coast, the U.S. and Canadian borders were sealed, all air traffic across the country was halted, and security was tightened at strategic installations. “This is the second Pearl Harbor. I don’t think that I overstate it,” said Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb. In June, a U.S. judge had set tomorrow as the sentencing date for a bin Laden associate

for his role in the 1998 bombing of a U.S. Embassy in Tanzania that killed 213 people. The sentencing had been set for the federal courthouse near the World Trade Center. No one from the U.S. attorney’s office could be reached today to comment on whether the sentencing was still on. Afghanistan’s hard-line Taliban rulers condemned the attacks and rejected suggestions that bin Laden was behind them, saying he does not have the means to carry out such well-orchestrated attacks. Bin Laden has been given asylum in Afghanistan.

In the West Bank city of Nablus, thousands of Palestinians celebrated the attacks, chanting “God is Great” and handing out candy. American Airlines initially identified the planes that crashed into the Trade Center as Flight 11, a Los Angeles-bound jet hijacked after takeoff from Boston with 92 people aboard, and Flight 77, which was seized while carrying 64 people from Washington to Los Angeles. In Pennsylvania, United Airlines Flight 93, a Boeing 757 en route from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco, crashed about 80 miles south-

east of Pittsburgh with 45 people aboard. United said another of its planes, Flight 175, a Boeing 767 bound from Boston to Los Angeles with 65 people on board, also crashed, but it did not say where. The fate of those aboard the two planes was not immediately known. United’s pilots union said United Flight 175 crashed into the Trade Center. But the airline had no immediate comment. Evacuations were ordered at the United Nations in New York and at the Sears Tower in Chicago. Los Angeles mobilized its anti-terrorism division, and security was intensified around the naval installations in Hampton Roads, Va. Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., was evacuated. At the World Trade Center, “everyone was screaming, crying, running — cops, people, firefighters, everyone,” said Mike Smith, a fire marshal. “It’s like a war zone.” “I just saw the building I work in come down,” said businessman Gabriel Ioan, shaking in shock outside City Hall, a cloud of smoke and ash from the World Trade Center behind him. Nearby a crowd mobbed a man on a pay phone, screaming at him to get off the phone so they could call relatives. Dust and dirt flew everywhere. Ash was 2 to 3 inches deep in places. People wandered dazed and terrified. The planes blasted fiery, gaping holes in the upper floors of the twin towers. A witness said he saw bodies falling and people jumping out. About an hour later, the southern tower collapsed with a roar and a huge cloud of smoke; the other tower fell about a half-hour after that, covering lower Manhattan in heaps of gray rubble and broken glass. Firefighters trapped in the rubble radioed for help. John Axisa, who was getting off a commuter train to the World Trade Center, said he saw “bodies falling out” of the building. He said he ran outside and watched people jump out of the first building. Then there was a second explosion, and he felt heat on the back of neck. WCBS-TV, citing an FBI agent, said five or six people jumped out of the windows. Witnesses on the street screamed every time another person leaped. “I have a sense it’s a horrendous number of lives lost,” Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said. “Right now we have to focus on saving as many lives as possible.”

Columbia residents astonished by strikes By the Tribune’s staff Bobby Douglas was on his way to the Bull Pen Café this morning when he turned on the radio and heard the news. “I got a sick feeling,” the farmer recalled as he finished his coffee. “But I wasn’t really surprised, the way the world is now and all. But when it hits close to home, it really makes a difference.” The entire nation was stunned this morning when terrorists struck at the World Trade Center in New York and at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Two U.S. passenger jets were sent crashing into the twin towers of the Trade Center shortly before 8 a.m.; the mammoth buildings collapsed about an hour later as millions of television viewers watched in horror. Meanwhile, a third plane struck and heavily damaged the Pentagon in Washington. Columbians across the city were awestruck this morning, and flags were being drawn to half mast. Ken Hines, assistant chief of the Boone County Fire District, said 62 members of Missouri Task Force One would leave Whiteman Air Force Base in Knob Noster today and head to McGuire Air Force Base south of Trenton, N.J. The team will head to New York to help with the response at the Trade Center.

At Hickman High School, students were told of the news over a loudspeaker. Doug Mirts, assistant principal for activities and athletics, said students would be kept up to date and that the first priority was trying to keep students and staff informed about the well-being of family members near the attack sites. At Columbia Independent School, Dee Corn, the head of school, visited classes to talk about the attacks. “I told them this is a good time to live in the Midwest in Columbia, Missouri,” she said. “We are safe here now, I hope. A couple of parents showed up. One dad just wanted to sit with his daughter and reassure her.” Mark Haim of Mid-Missouri Peaceworks lamented the tragedy but urged restraint. Area peace groups planned a candlelight vigil for 8 p.m. in MU’s Peace Park. “We unequivocally condemn the horrific attacks,” Haim said. “Our hearts go out to the families and loved ones of all who lost their lives or have been injured. We need to condemn the tragedy, but not compound it. We should not allow this event to be used for a more aggressive foreign policy, for increased spending for the military or national security apparatus. And we certainly shouldn’t allow it to be used to restrict our civil liberties and freedoms

in this country.” Donna Wallace watched for hours at Wilson’s Gym as the scene unfolded. “I’m just so upset I can’t stand it; all these people taking innocent lives,” said Wallace, 43. “For what reason?” Nearby, tears welled in Brenda Forrest’s eyes as she spoke of the attack. “When they hit the Pentagon, it made me realize these are not just some crazy people. It’s larger than that.” Walking on the treadmill next to her, Gary Kraus said he is thankful his family and friends are far from the destruction. “It’s terrible,” the retired attorney said. “You just thank God it’s not me, you thank God it’s not my kid in there.” Kraus viewed the bombings as an act of war. “The question is whether our country will have the fortitude to do anything about it.” Even the mention of war scares 18-year-old Hickman student body president Ben Robinson, who crowded into the school’s media room with about 200 students to watch the news. “It’s something out of an action movie; its not something that happens in life,” said Robinson. “It seems like extra pains were taken to give it extra shock value.” At Columbia Regional Airport, a somber mood fell over the two dozen people about a half hour after every flight in the nation was

grounded. Makeshift signs reading “Nationwide ground stop until 10 a.m.” were taped to brass TWE Express signs at the ticketing area. Linda Jeffrey of Louisville, Ky., said she was flying from St. Louis to Columbia when the attacks began. “We didn’t find out anything was going on until we landed,” she said. After several attempts to reach her children by cell phone, she finally got an answer. “Bart, are you OK? Turn on the television,” she said. “There’s been a terrorist attack, honey. The country’s in big trouble. Stay close to the house and take care of the girls.” Airport safety officer James Kinney didn’t know when flights might run again. “We’re just in an adrenaline dump right now,” he said. “Nobody is happy.” Joy Davis, who drove into Columbia from Branson to pick up a friend, was left slackjawed by scenes of billowing smoke filling downtown New York. “I’m shocked,” she said. “This is a national tragedy. It’s time for our people to pray for our nation. “Americans have always risen to the call. I hope — I believe — they will.” Tribune reporters Sara Agnew, Liz VanHooser, Mary Jo Feldstein, Steve Friedman and Justin Willett contributed to this report.

Report: Elizabeth Dole will make Senate bid

MARRIAGE LICENSES

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Republican leaders say Elizabeth Dole’s popularity, name recognition and experience in two Cabinet posts make her the ideal candidate to succeed Jesse Helms in the Senate. After weeks of lobbying her, those leaders are a step closer to getting their wish. A top Republican told The Associated Press yesterday that Dole has called several GOP officials in North Carolina to let them know she was entering the race. Dole was expected to formally announce her plans for the Senate race at a news conference Tuesday at her home in Salisbury, located between Charlotte and WinstonSalem. “I’m in there,” Dole told the Charlotte Observer yesterday. “I’ve taken the first steps on the campaign trail.” The Washington Post reported today that Dole will establish a campaign committee . “I’m going to be raising money, traveling the state, taking the first steps, and then make a formal announcement of candidacy later in the fall,” Dole said. Dole, 65, has not lived in North Carolina in decades and had long been registered to vote in Kansas, the home state of her husband, former Sen. Bob Dole.

have a zillion cars and buses,” Fales said. “Whenever we have a PTA occasion, we have people parking in a twoblock radius. Safety is an issue.” The property near Ridgeway was the subject of a controversial re-zoning dispute. Developer Tom McNabb sought to rezone the land to allow higher density development so that he could sell it to a church for an amount below appraisal, reaping a tax benefit. Grace Covenant Church bought most of the land and intends to build a sanctuary and community center. Church Treasurer Dana Battison, however, said there was a portion of McNabb’s property the church did not buy. Drawings submitted to the Columbia City Council showed the portion of the lot that is to become school parking. Henry Lane criticized the board for discussing the potential purchase of the lot in closed session. State law allows closed meetings regarding real estate matters, but it does not require them. “There were some other things about it we discussed, too,” Ritter said.

Parents of Ridgeway Elementary School children might have a new place to park, if the owner of the lot can get a variance. The Columbia Board of Education last night in closed session voted to pursue the purchase of land at the corner of Grand Avenue and Sexton Road on the corner west of Ridgeway Elementary School so the school can have more parking. “The decision hasn’t been made to buy land at this point,” Superintendent Jim Ritter said after the meeting. “It requires a variance from the city for there to be a parking lot. The person who owns the property has to seek that variance. If that is done successfully, we will enter into an agreement.” Ridgeway Elementary, 107 E. Sexton Road, is a magnet school with 242 students. The school has 21 parking spaces for 26 employees, another six part-time workers, plus parent volunteers. Plans to build a media center in the future would displace seven parking spaces, Principal Susan Fales said. “The main problem is at the end of the day when we

Phone Action Line at (573) 8151750 Q: Why was driver’s education taken out of the Columbia Public Schools curriculum, and is there any way to get it back in? A: I suspect that many parents of 15- and 16-year-olds may wonder what happened to driver’s education courses. Skip Deming, assistant superintendent of instruction for Columbia Public Schools, informed me that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education no longer requires driver’s education to be part of the curriculum. That, coupled with limited resources, meant the course was competing with other programs and did not survive the priority battle. Research done on a national basis — and supported by the insurance industry — suggests that student grades, not completion of a driver’s education course, is the best indicator of a good driver.

John Bell of Stuart Insurance Agency agrees with these findings. Before dropping the program, school officials considered the costs of personnel and equipment maintenance and increased insurance premiums, Deming said. The district also looked at the correlation between driver’s education and good driving. In the end, school officials decided that parents and family would be better teachers of driving skills. Deming, however, did say that if enough parents were interested in re-establishing driver’s education, the issue could be revisited. There are three private vendors in Columbia providing driver’s education. The cost is approximately $40 to $50 per hour. The number of hours required depends on the comfort level and experience of the student driver. Lisa Swafford of the Missouri Highway Patrol testing station at 3610 Buttonwood Drive said a “Safe

A parent must now sign a statement that they will give their teenager a minimum of 20 hours of instruction. Swafford indicated that number of hours is more than most students obtained in a driver’s education course, and the instruction is better done in a one-on-one setting between parent/guardian and child.

Terror strikes home

Pentagon hit hard in attack

AP photo

Flames and smoke pour this morning from the Pentagon after a direct hit from a jetliner during an apparent terrorism attack.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon took a direct, devastating hit from an aircraft, and the enduring symbols of American power were evacuated today as an apparent terrorist attack quickly spread fear and chaos in the nation’s capital. President George W. Bush, in Florida at the time of the attack, canceled plans to return to Washington and was flown aboard Air Force One to the safety of a military installation at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. The nerve center of the nation’s military burst into flames, and a portion of one side of the five-sided structure collapsed when the plane struck in midmorning. Secondary explosions were reported in the aftermath of the attack, and great billows of smoke drifted skyward toward the Potomac River and the city beyond. Glenn Flood, a Pentagon spokesman, said there were “extensive casualties and an unknown number of fatalities.” “We don’t know the extent of the injuries,” he said. “Terrorism against our nation will not stand,” Bush vowed on a morning when not only Washington was struck, but the

twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York were hit by planes and later collapsed. Vice President Dick Cheney was in Washington, and he and first lady Laura Bush were taken to an undisclosed secure location, officials said. Congressional leaders were hustled away from the Capitol to safety. “The leadership of the defense department is OK.” Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, “is OK,” Flood told reporters. Authorities immediately began deploying troops, including a regiment of light infantry. The departments of justice, state, the treasury and defense and the Central Intelligence Agency were evacuated — an estimated 20,000 at the Pentagon alone. Agents with automatic weapons patrolled the White House grounds. And the FAA ordered the entire nationwide air traffic system shut down for the first time in history. With Bush away from the capital, his advisers were preparing a list of options, including closing the nation’s borders, according to a senior U.S. official. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was premature to dis-

cuss military options because investigators were still trying to determine who was responsible for the attacks. Away from the Pentagon, unexplained explosions were reported in the vicinity of the Department of State and the Capitol. The Pentagon was hit a short while after the World Trade Center was struck. A plane, described by witnesses as a jetliner, made impact in the portion of the building on the side opposite from where Rumsfeld’s office are located. Paul Begala, a Democratic consultant, said he witnessed an explosion near the Pentagon, saying it sent a huge, orange fireball skyward. Associated Press reporter Dave Winslow also saw the crash. He said, “I saw the tail of a large airliner. ... It plowed right into the Pentagon.” Gen. Richard Myers, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that before the crash into the Pentagon, military officials had been notified that another hijacked plane had been heading from the New York area to Washington. He said he assumed that hijacked plane was the one that hit the Pentagon, though he couldn’t be sure.

Cancellations Many community, school and public events have been canceled today, and some businesses have chosen to close. Here’s a partial list. 씰The University of Missouri has given instructors the opportunity to cancel classes or discuss the events during class time. Some exams or academic discussions might need to continue on schedule. 씰All Columbia Public Schools extracurricular activities and events scheduled for tonight are cancelled. This includes back-toschool nights planned at West Junior High and Oakland Junior High, plus all sporting events. 씰MU Playwrights Workshop reading of “The Selfish Giant” at Memorial Union at the University of Missouri is cancelled. 씰A “Take Back the Night” March sponsored through MU’s Women’s Center is cancelled. 씰Tonight’s reception at Barnes & Noble with chairman Leonard Riggio is cancelled. 씰The Columbia Mall closed at 1 p.m. 씰Hispanic Heritage Month’s Proclamation at 3 p.m. in Courthouse Square is cancelled. 씰Stephens College will hold an all-campus event at 4 p.m. at Firestone-Baars Chapel on campus. 씰The Columbia Parks and Recreation Department was considering cancelling all events this evening but had made no decision by press time.

High-rise attack Smoke billows from the World Trade Center towers in New York today after two aircraft hit the upper floors of the buildings. Both buildings later collapsed. The Empire State Building is in the foreground.

The backlash began early this morning, even locally, as Muslim parents reported pulling their children out of school. They “were getting harassed because of the incident,” Ali Muhammad of The Islamic Center of Central Missouri, said one parent told him this morning. “I know several” parents “took their children home.” Like it or not, many people this morning immediately suspected Islamic militants might be responsible for the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Just like with the World Trade Center bombing in 1993 and the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, it’s that kind of blind assumption — and the backlash that can occur in its wake — that can cause as much harm to this country’s adopted citizens as to the victims of these horrific crimes against humanity. Many Columbia residents of Middle Eastern descent have either felt

the hostilities already or are anticipating them. “We’re working very hard to make sure” that type of harassment “doesn’t occur,” Columbia Public Schools Superintendent Jim Ritter said. “We have a number of children who come from the Middle East area who are outstanding students and outstanding school citizens. The blame can’t be placed on them.” Muhammad called local police, who this morning were patrolling the area around The Islamic Center, but said he hopes that in a college town with “knowledgeable, educated” citizens, unwarranted repercussions won’t be an issue. “Hopefully, people won’t jump to conclusions,” Muhammad said. “The Muslims here are part of this country, this community, and are against hurting people and terrorism” in general.” Today’s incidents are “not acceptable,” he added. “I couldn’t imagine that it happened. It’s very unfortunate.” Reach Pete Bland at (573) 815-1708 or pbland@tribmail.com.

He also said auxiliary entrances to state buildings would be closed. State Auditor Claire McCaskill cancelled a news conference scheduled for today.

Israeli tanks invade town JENIN, West Bank (AP) — Israeli tanks encircled this West Bank town early today in an open-ended foray into Palestinian territory that came in response to a string of attacks by Palestinian militants. Also today, two Israeli troops were killed in a Palestinian shooting attack on their base, and an Israeli man was wounded by Palestinian fire in the West Bank. Israel said it sealed Jenin because the town of 50,000 in the northern West Bank has turned into a staging ground for dozens of attacks by Palestinian militants, including a weekend suicide bombing that killed three Israeli civilians. After midnight yesterday, some two dozen tanks set up positions in Palestinian territory, on the outskirts of Jenin and an adjacent refugee camp, Palestinian witnesses said. Dozens of local gunmen fired at the Israeli troops, drawing return fire that wounded seven Palestinians.

Area is a ‘staging ground,’ government says. In nearly a year of fighting, Israeli troops have repeatedly entered Palestinian territory, but usually pulled out quickly. The incursion near Jenin marked the fourth time that Israeli forces remained in position for more than just a few hours. Asked about the duration of the incursion, Israeli Defense Ministry spokesman Yarden Vatikay said: “I have no answer because all we care about is ensuring that terrorists do not come out of Jenin.” Some of the tanks drove toward the first line of houses in Jenin, Palestinian witnesses said. Before dawn, Israeli tank fire knocked out power for several hours. The army confirmed troops were operating in Palestinian territory and that a tank shell was fired toward Jenin in response to Palestinian fire. After daybreak, the streets of

Jenin were deserted, with storefronts shuttered and residents remaining in their homes. Small groups of gunmen moved around, sporadically firing at Israeli positions. A month ago, Israeli troops entered Jenin and demolished the main security building, but pulled out after several hours. At the time, Israeli security officials said Jenin had turned into a stronghold for Palestinian militants. The Israeli government said today that dozens of suicide and car bombings as well as shooting attacks have been launched from Jenin. Commenting on the Jenin incursion, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat said that “despite the continuous military escalation, the siege, our people are steadfast ... and we will not kneel before anyone, except before God in prayer.”

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The same federal appeals court that rejected Missouri’s limits on donations from political parties to candidates for statewide office shouldn’t waver from that opinion, lawyers for the Missouri Republican Party argued yesterday. In brief oral arguments before the Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis, attorneys for the state GOP said the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in a similar case does not require the appeals court to change its earlier view that such limits are unconstitutional. The high court ordered the Eighth Circuit to reconsider the Missouri law after issuing a landmark decision earlier this year in a case from Colorado. In the Colorado case, the court allowed limits on the amounts parties may spend in concert with candidates for federal office. The Missouri law is slightly different; it concerns money and “in-kind” contributions given directly to candidates for state office. The limits are set at $11,175 for statewide candidates, $5,600 to Senate candidates and $2,800 to House candidates. Specifically, the state GOP said it is challenging the enforcement of the law during the 1998 general election. At that time, a separate state law setting limits on individual political contributions was still undergoing a court challenge and had been placed on hold. Since the law setting limits on parties is based on the individual limits, “the state simply has no valid interest in enforcing limits at that time,” said Bruce La Pierre, an attorney for the Missouri GOP and a law profes-

sor at Washington University. The Supreme Court later ruled 6-3 that Missouri’s limits on individual contributions are allowed under the constitution. That decision said Missouri did not violate free-speech rights when it capped individual contributions at $1,075 for state races. But there is “no room for the simplistic argument that state limits on a political party contributions are valid merely because” the Colorado case “upheld certain federal limits on coordinated expenditures,” La Pierre wrote in a brief filed before yesterday’s hearing in the Eighth Circuit. State Solicitor James Layton disagreed, saying the Supreme Court’s decision in the Colorado case requires a change in the Eighth Circuit’s opinion. In ruling the party limits unconstitutional last year, the Eighth Circuit said a political party is fundamentally different than an individual. “The Supreme Court has now rejected that precise holding,” Layton said in his brief. “The Court held that a political ‘party is not ... in a unique position. It is in the same position as some individuals and PACs, as to whom coordinated spending limits have already been held valid.’ ” It was the same three-judge panel hearing arguments yesterday that last year ruled 2-1 that the state’s limits on contributions from parties are unconstitutional, the decision returned by the Supreme Court for reconsideration. “You’ve given us an interesting matter to consider,” said Judge Pasco Bowman. “We will do that very carefully.”

Corrections officers’ overtime in limbo approve additional funding early next year in order for officers to receive their accumulated overtime, Kniest said. Gary Gross, a corrections officer at the Tipton Correctional Center, said workers can’t make extra money through a second job because so much overtime is required by the corrections department. Because of staff shortages and prison security requirements, workers can’t decline to work longer hours, Gross said. “It requires so much staff to man an institution,” Gross said. “We get time off, but there’s not enough staff available to get the time off. The morale is pretty low.” Gov. Bob Holden recently announced funding withholdings for several state agencies as part of costcutting measures. The corrections department suffered one of the largest cuts — $19 million — but still will be allowed to hire new guards. All prisons will take a 3 percent cut — a standard budget withholding that in good years is often released later.

JEFFERSON CITY (AP) — Thousands of Department of Corrections officers have been working for a year without receiving overtime pay because the agency says it cannot afford the tab. Since last July, state corrections officers haven’t received overtime pay and haven’t been able to take time off as compensation. To date, most corrections officers have logged more than 250,000 hours in state overtime totaling more than $3.1 million, according to the corrections department. An organization representing the officers said the amount of state overtime is more than 500,000 hours at a cost of more than $6 million. Tim Kniest, a spokesman for the corrections department, said more than $780,000 paid to the state for holding illegal aliens will be used to pay federal overtime to more than 2,400 Missouri corrections officers. “Partial relief is on the way,” Kniest said. But funding for state overtime won’t come anytime soon. It would be up to lawmakers to

Second U.S. aircraft disappears over Iraq Morris said the plane took off early today for southeastern Iraq. The unmanned aircraft, which is controlled from land, disappeared later this morning while patrolling in the area, he said. Earlier today the state-run Iraqi News Agency reported that the plane was shot down at 11:30 a.m. near the southern city of Basra, about 350 miles south of the capital, Baghdad, the state-run Iraqi News Agency reported. On Aug. 27, Iraq claimed to shoot down an unmanned reconnaissance plane in the Basra area. The U.S. Department of Defense acknowledged losing a plane in that area but said it was unsure whether it had been hit or had crashed on its own. The Pentagon has said the Predator was the first U.S. aircraft lost in Iraq in the 10 years since U.S. and

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — Iraq claimed today to have shot down a second U.S. spy plane in less than a month. A U.S. military spokesman said an unmanned plane is missing and its loss was being investigated. Maj. Brett Morris, spokesman for a U.S.-British military task force in the Persian Gulf, said the coalition force had lost an unmanned aircraft today similar to a U.S. spy plane lost last month. “We have lost contact with our unmanned observation aircraft,” Morris told The Associated Press in Manama, Bahrain. “There is an investigation going on ... with regard to the Predator’s disappearance,” he said. “We are working with the assumption that the plane has gone and are trying to figure out why it went down and how it went down.”

British planes began patrolling “nofly” zones — except for a “friendly fire” incident in 1994. Then, two American F-15 fighter jets mistakenly shot down two U.S. Army helicopters over northern Iraq, killing 15 Americans, five Iraqi Kurds, three Turks, two Britons and a Frenchman. The United States and Britain have been patrolling Iraqi skies to protect Shiite Muslim rebels in the south and Kurdish insurgents in the north from government forces. The patrols also provide early warning of potential Iraqi military moves toward Kuwait. Iraq considers the no-fly zones violations of its sovereignty and has stepped up its efforts to shoot down allied planes. In 1998, President Saddam Hussein offered cash prizes to any Iraqi military unit that shoots down an enemy warplane or captures a U.S. or British pilot.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — After weeks of trying, three Western diplomats met today with eight foreign aid workers to try to sort out their legal options, more than a week after their trial on charges of preaching Christianity in Afghanistan began here. The diplomats met their nationals — two Americans, four Germans and two Australians — three days after the defendants appeared for the first time in the Taliban’s supreme court and were told to decide either to hire a lawyer or to represent themselves. Since then, the diplomats from the United States, Germany and Australia, as well as the parents of the two American women, have been considering lawyers who practice in a variety of countries, including several Muslim nations. The foreign aid workers of Shelter Now International, a Christian aid organization, were arrested in the beginning of August, along with 16 Afghan workers. So far, the two male aid workers, German George Taubmann and Aus-

The Taliban espouse a harsh version of Islam that they say follows the literal interpretation of the Islamic holy book, the Quran. Their interpretation has often run contrary to other Muslim countries and Islamic

scholars. However, they maintain their version is a “pure” Islamic system. In July, the Taliban issued an edict saying the penalty for a foreigner suspected of proselytizing a religion other than Islam was jail and expulsion, but Saqib has refused to say whether he is operating under that edict. The penalty for Afghans who preach or convert to another religion is death.

THE TRIBUNE’S VIEW

Social Security ‘lockbox’ What say?

T

here is no such thing as a discrete Social Security trust fund. Nevertheless, campaigning politicians back in the late, lamented days of burgeoning budget surpluses fell over themselves promising to keep the “trust fund” as a “lockbox.” Now their thoughtless words are haunting them. At the moment, Democrats find the most advantage in misrepresenting the situation, but Republicans have little room to complain. They did their share of painting into the corner. The issue is the impending federal budget, the first crafted by President George W. Bush. Suddenly, projected surpluses are gone, launching talk about using Social Security funds for other government purposes. This prospect gives gleeful Democrats a way to accuse Bush: His tax cuts drained the federal Treasury. His lockbox promises were lies. Social Security is being threatened, and Bush is to blame. The Bush administration does suddenly find itself on a budget tightrope, but as mentioned here before, this is not a bad thing. Neither political party deserves credit or blame for recent budget fluctuations. Lordy, I wish it were so. Then, by mere crafting of political policy we could ensure steady economic happiness. As it is, our sage and ethically pure federal government leaders reel with surprise right along with the rest of us when the economy and the public budget soar or sag. The plain fact to remember is that the federal budget remains replete with

untold trillions of dollars to be spent. The nature of federal fiscal politics ensures that this largess will be spread around prolifically. The last thing I worry about is whether enough government spending will occur. On the contrary, least likely in fat times or lean is spending restraint. Now that the budget surplus seems to be gone, we are seeing a rare moment of scarce revenue prioritizing. Politicians actually are having a good debate about how not to spend. Hallelujah. One salutary result is that military base closings are more likely. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has a stronger argument with Congress when he can say closings are necessary to fund needed military spending in other areas. If they had the money, members of Congress would continue to dish the pork with unneeded bases. Nothing short of a credibly tight budget might push them to rationalize our array of bases. Since no Social Security trust fund exists except as a number on paper and the benefit program is in no way threatened, we should ignore promises of immediate doom. However, we should take seriously promises of certain doom in the near future if Social Security is not reformed. Nobody is happy about the soft economy, but we should welcome its restraint on public spenders. Let’s remember that if we send it, they will spend it. Occasionally, it’s not a bad thing to cut back on the sending. HJW III

Israel’s undeclared war on Palestinians must end Editor, the Tribune: Recently an article appeared in your paper, “State of war,” by Hank Waters, who possesses a shocking lack of knowledge on the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Waters stated “They ought to just go to war to stake out their territory, and then defend it.” The truth is, Israel has waged a vicious undeclared war on Palestinians since 1947, laying groundwork for their coming “statehood” in May 1948, destroying at least 11 villages, murdering, massacring and raping defenseless inhabitants, uprooting and driving out thousands. This ruthless killing and landgrabbing continues to this day, into the illegally occupied territories of Palestine. Israel steadfastly refuses to draw state lines. Moshe Dayan, as quoted in Benjamin Beit Hallahmi’s “Original Sins,” said, “Before” Palestinians’ “very eyes we are possessing the land and the villages where they, and their ancestors, have lived ... We are the generation of colonizers, and without the steel helmet and the gun barrel we cannot plant a tree and build a home.” Israel must stop defying international laws and call off its brutal “undeclared war,” unconscionable terrorism, wanton killings and illegal occupation against largely defenseless people who sporadically strike an otherwise undisturbed Israel while Palestinians are being torn apart, oppressed, collectively punished and literally put through Hades. If you have a family, nothing to defend them or your home, nowhere to go, against one of the Earth’s most powerful armies with all the latest weaponry coming at you, what would you do?

Tribune should put facts over sensationalism Editor, the Tribune: An Aug. 20 “Tribune’s View” contained the following statement: “Muslims cite religious doctrine in support of suicide bombing attacks against innocent civilians, including children.” This is a false and dangerous misrepresentation of Islam that endangers the safety of Columbia’s Muslim population. It needs correction by reference to the facts. The Koran strictly prohibits all but defensive acts of war against hostile combatants: “Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, and do not commit aggression. Indeed, God does not like the aggressors.” (2:190) Furthermore, the Koran expressly

prohibits acts of aggression committed against others because of religious difference: “There shall be no compulsion in the acceptance of the religion. The right course has become clear from error.” (2:256) The rules of engagement given by Abu Bakr, the closest companion of the Prophet Muhammad, specify the protection of children, innocents, the elderly and even the environment and the rights of animals: “Do not betray or be treacherous or vindictive. Do not mutilate. Do not kill children, the aged, or the women. Do not cut or burn palm trees or fruitful trees. Do not slay a sheep, cow or camel except for your food. And you will come across people who confined themselves to worship in hermitages… Leave them to do what they devoted themselves for.” I am surprised the Tribune would make such an extreme factual and ethical mistake. I hope that in the future the paper will prioritize accurate presentation of the facts over sensationalism. Rashed Nizam, president Islamic Center of Central Missouri Inc. 201 S. Fifth St.

There are no winners where burglary is concerned Editor, the Tribune: I want to express my heartfelt condolences to Deanna Gramling for the loss of her son. I also have to offer my heartfelt condolences to William Jones and his family. They have also suffered a tragedy because they were forced to use lethal force to protect themselves from an alleged burglary by Gramling’s son and his two friends. No one wants to have a burglary end in the death of anyone, but until you are awakened at 1 a.m. by the sounds of broken glass as three men break into your home, you can’t understand the fear. While all the details have not been released, it certainly appears that Jonathan Gramling made a bad decision that fateful night. He participated in a burglary. When you do bad things, you sometimes pay the price. The price is not automatically death in the state of Missouri, but our laws, rightfully so, allow the use of lethal force when you are faced with a burglar who you reasonably believe is going to cause death or serious physical injury. Let us all pray that we don’t have to wake up to the likes of Gramling and his friends breaking into our homes. Let us all pray that we, or our loved ones, do not make the mistake of participating in a burglary at 1 a.m. Everyone loses in that kind of situation. Jeff Kline 601 Business Loop 70 W., Suite 102

Pondering a building project? Shelve it! By FORREST ROSE As a repeat winner of the coveted Purple Thumb Award for Home Carpentry, I think it’s fair to claim I’ve bent more nails in my time than Uri Geller. Maybe you’re one of those people who are skilled with tools, but brother, I’m probably the clumsiest carpenter who ever swung a hammer. Unfortunately, I couldn’t admit as much when a certain enchantress with whom I share my coverlet declared that she needed more shelf space. Tears welled up in her big green eyes, and my sense of chivalry and masculine ego welled up with them. No man of red-blooded American vintage can admit, even to himself, that he’s not handy enough to build a shelf. Hey, it’s nothing but a box. How hard can it be? So, you drive out to the lumberyard and buy some boards, some wood screws, sandpaper and varnish. After you examine the place where the shelf is going to stand, it becomes obvious that your creation will block the room’s only heating and airconditioning duct. This will never do, so you survey the opposite wall, only to find that your shelf, as designed, will cover the sole electrical outlet. The remaining wall is the one with the picture window. In view of these obstacles, you realize the shelf will have to be taller and narrower than you had originally planned, necessitating another trip to the lumberyard to buy some longer boards. Now, you’re ready to build! First, you take the yardstick — what happened to that tape measure you used to have? — and with a No. 2 pencil mark the places where you want to saw. The pencil lead keeps breaking, and twice the yardstick slips so you gouge the wood in such a way as to require extra sanding later on.

Eventually, the lines are drawn. Well done, o mighty builder! Time for the heavy equipment: the hand-held circular saw you borrowed from the neighbor who assumed you knew how to use it. You hoist the first board onto the sawhorses, which have a distressing list to starboard no matter where you place them. Carefully, you line up the pencil marks and press the trigger. Ah, the satisfying, earsplitting shriek of blade biting into wood. That’s more like it! You’re done sawing. Your hands are numb. You count your fingers to make sure they’re still attached. Then, you notice that one of the boards has split. This means another trip to the lumberyard or resawing the other boards to even them up. Facing the cashier again would be too embarrassing, so you opt for a shorter shelf. The sun is high in the sky by now, and perhaps you feel entitled to knock off for a while, stretch out on the settee and study a televised ballgame. But you know that if you don’t finish that shelf today, it will forever litter the landscape like one of those halfbuilt skyscrapers in Jakarta that were abandoned when the Asian economy collapsed. So, you take up your trusty yardstick and measure where to put the woodscrews. Unfortunately, your pencil has fallen from behind your ear and gotten lost, so you have to use a ballpoint pen that was not designed to write on wood. You press hard, figuring you can see gouges in the wood just as easily as you can see pencil marks, and who’s going to look under the shelves anyway? Drilling the screw holes calls for a steady hand, and yours is beginning to tremble alarmingly from a combination of caffeine and fatigue. The upshot is a couple of the

screws don’t line up, and their points protrude ominously from the surface of the shelf. You make a note to cover them later with your old college chemistry textbook. Compared to what’s gone before, using an electric sander would be almost soothing if it didn’t involve so much bending and stooping. But the screaming pain in your lower back also clears your mind, and you logically conclude that the undersides of the shelves don’t really need to be sanded after all. You almost take the same approach to varnishing, but a lingering sense of shame compels you to put at least one coat on even the hidden surfaces. No sooner have you applied the last brush stroke, then a kid from down the street comes screeching up on his bike, executing a bat-turn stop that raises a cumulonimbus cloud of dust onto your still wet and sticky creation. “What’re you doing?” he says. The honest answer would be, “I don’t know what I’m doing, but at least I’m done.” But instead, you instruct the lad in proper conduct, in the process teaching him a couple of new words that he will find useful later in life. Well, the boy’s parents were a little upset at the vocabulary lesson, and your neighbor keeps complaining about a peculiar grinding noise in his circular saw. The important thing is I finished that shelf. It now leans proudly in the laundry room, a handy and handsome repository for detergent boxes, extra light bulbs and assorted cleaning fluids. It’s highly useful just as it is, of course, but its ingenious design would allow it to be easily converted into a rabbit hutch, or even into a merry, blazing bonfire for a cool autumn evening. I’d say that just about nails it. Forrest Rose is a Tribune columnist. You can reach him via e-mail at editor@tribmail.com.

Novelist submits seasoned view of society By GEORGE F. WILL Baroness James of Holland Park is the somewhat forbidding title of the energetic 81-year-old grandmother known to millions of readers worldwide as P.D. James, author of elegantly crafted and morally complex detective novels, the latest being “Death in Holy Orders.” However, Holland Park is just a nice swath of urban green space across a busy street from her modest London home, and she functions as a baroness only when in the House of Lords as that 700-year-old body does what it can to cause whatever government controls the House of Commons to have second, or perhaps first, thoughts about what it cannot really be stopped from doing. It is instructive to solicit the judgment of the elderly about contemporary conditions, because, as James has written, episodes long past “catch on the threads of memory as burrs stick to a coat” and provide benchmarks for marking progress, or what passes for it. Her formative years were dominated by reverberations of the catastrophe of 1914-18, which cast “a shadow of uncomprehended vicarious sadness.” Her generation “was born under a pall of inarticulate grieving.” Measured against that benchmark, contemporary Britain is blessed. Yet the “devolution” of power from Westminster to Welsh and Scottish assemblies is but one, and not the most profound, sign of a country less unified than it once was by certain common beliefs. Those, she says, centered on the empire, the monarchy and the Church of England and its liturgy. The attenuation — to put it mildly

— of those beliefs and the replacement of religion by sport, particularly tribal loyalties to soccer teams, has resulted, James says with mingled regret and complacency, in a “less moral country, but a more equal and fair one.” Time was, “ordinary people certainly were more honest — but, then, many lived under the fear of hell and the law.” Progress. Perhaps. She is mildly disdainful of what she calls “the climate of compensation,” which Americans call the entitlement mentality of a therapeutic culture. “People,” she says bemusedly, “expect to be counseled if they suffer trauma.” Recalling the soldiers returning from two wars, she says tartly, “I don’t remember them all coming home expecting to be counseled about what they went through.” Remembering what fell upon London six decades ago, she dryly wonders, “Would there be enough counselors to go around after a bad bombing?” Her judgments have the edge of a survivor from a sterner age. Five years ago, heeding Samuel Johnson’s dictum that “At 77 it is time to be in earnest,” she published “a fragment of autobiography” titled “Time to Be in Earnest.” In it she approvingly recalled a similar astringency in a letter Jane Austen wrote when she learned that a neighbor had given birth to her 18th child: “I would recommend to her and Mr. Dee the simple regimen of separate rooms.” James believes her vocation, writing novels, has a mildly moral as well as entertaining purpose. She recalls that Victorian novelists rather defensively claimed a moral mission because then there “hung about novel-reading the sulphurous

whiff of indolent and almost decadent selfindulgence.” She knows novels are unlikely instruments for the reform of institutions or individuals, but she thinks most novelists have an “urge to nudge society’s inclinations in a direction more agreeable to our own beliefs and prejudices.” Women, she says, have an eye for details and hence for clues, are more interested in motive than violence and are gifted with psychological subtlety and the exploration of moral choice. Besides, “bringing order out of disorder is a female function.” This thought has two virtues: in addition to scandalizing a certain stripe of feminist, it is explanatory. It explains why women — Dorothy Sayers, Josephine Tey, Ruth Rendell, Elizabeth George, James herself, among others — are such masters of the detective genre: They have a natural aptitude for it, especially for detection about murder because death underscores “the fragility of life.” Hence, again, the female function — women as agents of order. Furthermore, as a Christian, James believes detective fiction “provides for the reader the comforting reassurance that, despite our apparent powerlessness, we yet inhabit an intelligible universe.” Although she is fond of Henry James’ statement that “We trust to novels to maintain us in the practice of great indignations and great generosities,” she doubts it is still accurate. Less demanding entertainments—television, principally — have largely displaced novels. But not entirely. Today’s readers, too, have their James. George Will is a columnist for The Washington Post.

Bill takes away right of patients

Microsoft keeps on marching

By DAVID R. HENDERSON

Justice’s softening loosens its leverage.

A

so-called patients’ bill of rights actually would restrict the freedom of employers, employees and insurance companies. How so? Because such a law would make certain kinds of insurance policies illegal, even if health insurance companies want to offer such policies and even if employers and employees want to buy them. The particular policies that would be made illegal under legislation Congress is considering are policies that limit patients’ power to sue insurers and employers. Many people realize this would violate the rights of insurers and employers, and many of them, unfortunately, don’t care. But the legislation Congress is considering also would violate the rights of every patient reading this article; none of us would be able to work for an employer who offers health insurance that limits our power to sue. Why would patients ever want less power to sue? For the same reason many ladder buyers want to limit the liability of ladder manufacturers. Just as lawsuits against ladder manufacturers have added a hefty markup to the price of a ladder, so also would increased liability for health insurers drive up the cost of insurance, making rates higher. Some of the more extreme proponents deny that increased liability would raise costs. But if it wouldn’t raise insurers’ costs, why on earth are insurers spending millions lobbying against the legislation? You might say, “Even if employers have to pay higher premiums for insurance, so what?” Here’s what. Your pay roughly equals the value of your output to your employer. If your health insurance costs an extra $300 a year because of Congress’ legislation, your monetary compensation or your other fringe benefits or both will fall about $300 a year. This basic economic reasoning is backed up by hefty economic research done by Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist Jonathan Gruber and others. The people who actually pay the higher cost of employer-provided benefits are employees. But what if employees value the increased power to sue more than that power costs? That would mean that the wage cut they would willingly take to pay for that increased power would exceed the cost of the insurance. A profitmaximizing employer would be happy to oblige, and all — employer, employee and insurance company — would be better off. In that case, the legislation would not be needed. Not seeing insurers offering liberal powers to sue means they, employers and employees have all judged that employees don’t value the power to sue as much as it would cost, which means the legislation would harm employees. Interestingly, when California voters got to vote directly on regulations that limited managedcare insurers in 1996, they voted the measures down by 58 percent to 42 percent and by 62 percent to 38 percent. That same year, Oregon voters rejected a similar measure. The political pressure for a patients’ bill of rights comes, not mainly from employees, but from two other groups: doctors and nurses, who want to increase the demand for their services, and trial lawyers. David R. Henderson is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution and an economics professor at the Naval Postgraduate School.

The following appeared Friday in the San Jose Mercury News. or the sake of expedience and not, we hope, out of waning conviction, the U.S. Department of Justice has done an aboutface in the Microsoft case. It will no longer seek its strongest penalty and will no longer pursue a key contention. The penalty was the proposed breakup of the company — something the Clinton justice department had argued was necessary. The contention was the claim that Microsoft illegally interwove its Internet browser into its Windows operating system in order to crush competition. Instead, the Bush justice department said Thursday it would propose other restrictions to curb Microsoft’s monopolistic behavior. The intent is “prompt, effective and certain relief for consumers.” A quicker resolution? Probably. Whether it will be effective is not obvious. By walking away from a central tenet, involving the browser and Windows, the justice department has weakened its case and maybe lost leverage over the company. And Microsoft has a history of ignoring or working around restrictions. The justice department can argue that it needed to be more realistic. A federal appeals court did find Microsoft guilty of illegally maintaining a monopoly over PCbased operating systems. So the department can rely on that finding for requesting stringent penalties. What’s more, time is critical. Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows XP, is already in computer makers’ hands. The odds that a court would grant an injunction to delay its release next month are slim. For a remedy to be effective, it must apply to XP and do so within months, not the years Microsoft might prolong the case if the department sought a breakup. And a structural breakup, while justifiable on the basis of the company’s record of predatory acts and coercion, was a long shot. District Court Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson had ordered it, but the appeals court set it aside, finding that the judge was biased. But the charge of illegally “tying” the browser and other software applications to Windows was worth pursuing. It gets to the heart of Microsoft’s strategy of winnowing out competitors. With XP, Microsoft is tying more products than before. Building applications into an operating system can be useful to consumers. But the advantages must be balanced by the threat to consumer choice and competition. Last year, Jackson set restrictions on Microsoft, which he later withdrew, that the government should consider as a starting point. One would force Microsoft to disclose pieces of the operating system code so that competitors can make their products compatible with XP. Another restriction would bar the company from forcing PC makers using Windows also to use Media Player and other Microsoft software applications. The court record offers proof that Microsoft will make fools of courts and regulators that aren’t vigilant. The justice department must be ready to enforce whatever penalties it proposes with strict monitoring — something it continues to resist. Breaking up the company was the justice department’s first choice. It still should remain the option of last resort, if Microsoft defies what it agrees to or a court imposes.

Slicing out pork Bush should dust off veto pen, crack down on wasteful spending. By PHILLIP TRULUCK

R

eports of a shrinking budget surplus have prompted a rash of hand-wringing among federal lawmakers as they prepare to resume work on the spending bills they left behind at the beginning of August. Some warn that the Social Security surplus will have to be tapped. How can Congress cope? It’s hard to sympathize, though, when you consider that the nine spending bills passed by the House of Representatives so far are loaded with a record amount of “pork” projects that threaten to erase whatever’s left of this year’s surplus. Unfortunately, the Bush administration seems unnecessarily ready to accept this fact. A high-ranking White House official opined before the recess that pork, alas, is “an acceptable cost of doing business with Congress.” The phrase sounds uncomfortably similar to that used by big-city contractors to justify the practice of greasing the palms of corrupt zoning officials, building inspectors and union officers to get approval of legitimate construction projects. Does President George W. Bush have no choice but to negotiate from the wrong end of a pork barrel?

It’s certainly an expensive way to do business. House members have salted budget year 2002 spending bills with nearly 19,000 in-district projects worth a combined $280 billion — both new records. We’re talking about $2 out of every $5 under their control. Bush can’t let this pork-packed spending stand if he wants to bring the federal budget under control. Early on, he laid down his budget marker: a 4 percent overall increase in discretionary spending. Though only half the rate of spending hikes pushed through in President Bill Clinton’s last year in office, it’s still a generous offer. But Congress so far has shown itself unable to live within these bounds — which is why it’s time for Bush to drop his “compromise and accommodate” strategy and pick up his veto pen. Given the murmuring from some lawmakers about the need to roll back the president’s prized tax cut, the president should throw down the gauntlet and announce his intention to veto all spending bills that surpass the spending target. And he must follow through. The promise to veto pork-filled spending bills must be as firm and as committed as the promise to cut taxes.

Sure, the big spenders will be quick to deplore the shift. But a veto strategy is neither a sign of partisanship — pork knows no party — nor one of weakness. Far from being a “negative” approach to governing, it’s a sign of strong, effective leadership. History shows the most successful and respected presidents haven’t been shy in using the veto. Franklin D. Roosevelt, for example, was a great devotee of the veto strategy and used it quite successfully to bring the legislative branch to heel when he thought it was straying too far from his policies. He is quoted as saying, when having problems with Congress: “Find me a bill I can veto!” During his years as president, Roosevelt averaged 48 vetoes per year. By way of comparison, the first President George Bush issued 44 vetoes during his four-year term. Clinton vetoed only 37 bills during his two terms. Interestingly, the presidents historians frequently rank as the greatest were generally those most willing to use the veto. Perhaps this is because the veto is a powerful tool, well-suited for an activist president. It is a remarkably successful tool, too: Only 4 percent of all

presidential vetoes — going all the way back to George Washington — have been overridden by Congress. And Bush would seem to have enough votes in Congress to use his veto pen with great authority. The president’s willingness to use every tool at his disposal to control federal spending becomes more and more critical with every projection of a dwindling budget surplus. The Congressional Budget Office recently trimmed its estimate of this year’s budget surplus from the $200 billion it had projected in June to $153 billion. That’s why every dollar wasted in pork-barrel spending looms large. The more the big spenders can drive up spending and drive down the surplus, the more “evidence” they amass to demonstrate the “need” to roll back tax relief. Excessive spending can lead to only two possible outcomes: a resumption of federal deficits or an economically debilitating tax hike. Neither is acceptable. So dust off that box of pens, Mr. President, and start vetoing. Phillip Truluck is chief operating officer of The Heritage Foundation, a Washington-based public policy research institute.

Brazil sets example in AIDS fight This appeared Thursday in the San Jose Mercury News. harmaceutical companies that manufacture drugs to fight AIDS have too often shown more interest in protecting their patents than in saving lives. Luckily, Brazil has stepped forward to remind them a patent is a social contract, not a sacred right that takes precedence over all else. Brazil has been an international leader in showing that developing countries can indeed prevent and treat AIDS. As the disease marches through Africa and Asia, Brazil has cut its AIDS-related death rate in half over four years. This success is because of a major condom distribution program and

P

Efforts prove developing nations can treat, prevent disease. an aggressive program of free antiAIDS drugs for about 100,000 patients. It’s also because of Brazil’s willingness to use international trade laws as leverage for price breaks. In six months of negotiations, Brazil had achieved only a 17 percent reduction in the price it would pay Swiss pharmaceutical giant Roche for nelfinavir, sold as Viracept. Even that brought the price down to about half what it costs in the United States, but it was still so high it threatened to eat up 25 percent of Brazil’s total AIDS drug budget. So Brazil broke off negotiations last

month and announced that it would produce its own generic version of the drug, which international law allows if there is a national emergency. Roche caved, and Brazil won a 40 percent discount. If ever there were a national emergency for sub-Saharan Africa, India and a large portion of Asia, it is AIDS. Galloping infection rates, cultural barriers and lack of adequate health-care systems have been exacerbated by drug companies that wanted to charge high prices in Africa, just as in the United States. Dozens of those companies even

banded together to sue South Africa for seeking to import or produce generic drugs for its millions of AIDS sufferers, a suit dropped only in the face of international outrage. Brazil has shown that those roadblocks can be breached. Not every country is in Brazil’s position to play hardball with multinational companies. But most of them could follow Brazil’s lead in directing resources to the fight and in finding ways to obtain and distribute drugs. Where there’s a will to treat and prevent AIDS, there’s a way. Brazil is showing the way.

Rampant school suspensions might prove detrimental By VINCENT SCHIRALDI and JASON ZIEDENBERG

A

s children head back to school this year, they will face a much greater chance of being kicked out than their parents did when they were in school. Ironically, today’s students are at least as well behaved as their parents were at the same age. The headlines would be almost comical if they didn’t have real-world implications for flesh-and-blood students. A pair of kindergartners in New Jersey was suspended for forming their hands into a gun and saying “bang, bang” on their school’s playground. Two 10-year-olds from Arlington, Va., were actually prosecuted for putting hand soap into their teacher’s coffee as a prank. A 13-year-old in Denton County, Texas, who wrote a scary story for an English class on which he received a passing grade, was suspended from school

and locked up for six days. While these individual news stories can be written off as isolated overreactions, the most recent data published by the U.S. Department of Education has quantified the impact of zero tolerance policies on the nation’s young people. Their data show that public school students are nearly twice as likely to be suspended from school as students were in the 1970s. In the 1974-75 school year, 1.7 million youths — or about 3.7 percent of all students — were suspended from schools. By the 1997-98 school year, a whopping 3.2 million students were suspended from public schools. That works out to 6.8 percent of all students or about one out of every 15 students enrolled in public schools. Surely, this must be because students today are worse-behaved than students in the halcyon 1970s. Not so. According to the Department of Justice, the percentage of

students reporting that they were injured with a weapon in 1999 was almost identical to what it was in 1976. Students today also report similar rates of being threatened in schools and having their belongings stolen. In additional to behaving as well as the baby boom generation did in school, today’s young people are better behaved on a variety of other indicators outside of school. Youths today are less likely to commit homicides, get pregnant during their teen years and take drugs or binge drink than youths during the late 1970s. Yet nearly twothirds of Americans believe youth crime is on the increase. As young people face the harsh winds of zero-tolerance policies despite their good behavior, we need to take a careful look at the outcomes of such policies. When we do, what we see is scary. According to the Centers for Disease

Control, students kicked out of school are more likely to take drugs, engage in sex and use weapons than young people who remain in school. Students who have been suspended are three times as likely as nonsuspended students to drop out of school permanently. Reams of studies have shown that high school graduation is positively associated with earnings and employment in adulthood. No one can watch bodies being wheeled out of schools on gurneys and not be deeply affected. But if we victimize students again by intolerant policies despite their good behavior, we will only serve to compound the problems our young people face in getting a good education and transitioning from adolescence into adulthood. Vincent Schiraldi and Jason Ziedenberg are with the Justice Policy Institute, a private, notfor-profit research and public policy organization in Washington.

Chuck Johnson By JENNA ISAACSON Most people look forward to the weekends as a time to relax and catch up on their sleep. For the last 27 years, Chuck Johnson has viewed weekends as an opportunity to serve his country. Johnson puts on his fatigues on Saturday morning, setting aside his shirt and tie from his weekly job as Moberly Regional Medical Center’s director of therapeutic services as one of about 200 local reservists assigned to the U.S. Army Reserve Center on Business Loop 70. “I have a desire to serve,” Johnson said, adding that he appreciates the

structure and discipline of part-time military life. Growing up in a military family, Johnson had a taste of the military life before he joined. “I was an Army brat,” he explained. He attended classes in 12 school systems in 12 years as his family moved around the country. He wound up in Columbia, graduating from Hickman High School before enlisting in the Army for three years of active duty. He trained to be a respiratory therapist at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. After his three years were up, he joined as a reservist.

NEIGHBORHOOD ROUNDUP The Neighborhood Watch annual meeting is at 7 tonight. in the mezzanine conference room at city hall, 701 E. Broadway. All members of neighborhood watch groups are invited to come out and learn about what’s going on in the Neighborhood Watch program and about its future plans and projects. Members of the watch board will also be elected. Sgt. Danny Grant of the Columbia Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit said there are three board positions open with four or five candidates. The Neighborhood Watch bylaws call for officers to serve up to two three year terms. People interested in being on the board can submit their name at the meeting, according to the Neighborhood Watch newsletter.

Serving as a reservist typically involves serving one weekend a month and two weeks a year. But Johnson puts in about 30 hours a month. In December of 1990, Johnson was called upon to serve in Desert Storm, where he served in a supply depot, helping supply units and hospitals with medical supplies. “It was an experience,” Johnson says after giving it some thought. After the war was officially over, Johnson was assigned to get humanitarian aid and supplies to thousands of Kurds, an ethnic group that neither Saddam Hussein nor Turkey wanted inside its borders.

Meanwhile, the next Neighborhood Watch revitalization meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sept. 25 at Hickman High School. The meeting is part of the ongoing effort to bring Neighborhood Watch groups together with new residents. Officers go door to door and leave information with people in the areas where there were active groups. The meetings provide training for members and a chance for really motivated neighbors to become group captains. ■ The University of Missouri-Columbia Black Culture Center is holding a fall festival from 4 to 7 p.m tomorrow at Virginia Field on Virginia Avenue. The festival is to familiarize minority students with student organizations, faculty, staff and various facets of MU campus and Columbia’s resources and services.

“That was a real eye-opener,” he said. “They had very little shelter. We gave them tents, medical supplies and basic stuff just to get by.” Johnson remembers the experience with lessons he took away from it. “It allows you to be thankful for all the things you have,” he said. “Seeing 10,000 people with nothing. It changes your perspective.” With three more years to go to reach his goal of 30 years of reserve service, Johnson isn’t ready to look ahead to what he will do with all of his new free time. “We’ll just see what things look like then,” he says.

“We just try to include everyone,” organizer Deniece Christian said, adding that the festival is not limited to blacks, but is also geared toward Hispanics, Native Americans and others. “We’re here to educate,” Christian said. A free barbecue will be provided as well as performances by black Greek organizations. ■ Mid-Missouri Pride is holding its first fall festival at Lions/Stephens Park from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday. Advance tickets are $5 or can be purchased at the picnic for $6. Proceeds from the festival will go toward funding next year’s PrideFest 2002 and toward funding a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender community center in Columbia.

YOUR BIRTHDAY WEDNESDAY: Success becomes your middle name. All you need is to stay focused on your goals and objectives. Use precision in money dealings, especially if they involve a friendship. Your popularity grows in an unprecedented manner as you expose yourself to more public interaction and become more social. Network more than you have in the past. If single, a friendship could open the door to a special relationship. Walk on through. If you are attached, the two of you will need to circle your wagons around a key goal. Striving to make it so brings increased closeness. Cancer stands up for you and is lucky for you as well. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult. VIRGO (Aug. 23-S Sept. 22): ★★★★★ You know what you want. Making it a reality will involve bypassing some rigid ideas. Delve into financial potential through key associates. Network to your heart’s content. Unusual forces now work in your favor. Take a risk, even if you normally don’t like to. Tomorrow night: Where your friends are.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-O Oct. 22): ★★★★ Your ability to sort through what is important separates you from others. Allow your imagination to lead. Express ideas if in a business/work atmosphere. Others seek you out to brainstorm. Don’t get distracted from key responsibilities. Tomorrow night: Call an older relative. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-N Nov. 21): ★★★✍ ★★ Stop hemming and hawing. If you want to do something, get going. You will be pleased with the results. You might not feel like being open to many people about what you think. So reveal yourself to a key partner who understands. Tomorrow night: Check out different travel possibilities. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-D Dec. 21): ★★★★★ Schedule time with those you need to deal with. You’re more successful if you deal with others directly. Another might misinterpret your motives; open up conversation. A parent, boss or associate wants greater influence. Tomorrow night: Don’t forget your personal life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-JJan. 19): ★★★★★ Others find you; you don’t need to seek anyone out. Getting certain projects done will take talent or

closing your door and screening your calls. Let others know when you will be available, even if it might be late. Tomorrow night: Catch up on a friend’s news over dinner. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-FFeb. 18): ★★★★ Pace yourself! An exercise program helps you discharge anxiety and tension. You want more facts before you make a decision. Go after information yourself by using the many resources you have available. Tomorrow night: Discuss an idea with a partner or friend. PISCES (Feb. 19-M March 20): ★★★★★ Your sense of fun emerges even though this is a workday. Don’t mix your playfulness into finances and a work partnership. The mixture could be a dreadful mistake. Clear your mind when doing facts and figures. Others seek you out. Tomorrow night: Now play! ARIES (March 21-A April 19): ★★★★ Positive thinking manifests itself — finally. Instead of becoming flustered at confusion, you laugh. Isn’t this easier? Your good will accomplishes good work relationships and an effective day-to-day atmosphere. Still, consider a home office. Tomorrow night: Spruce up your pad. TAURUS (April 20-M May 20): ★★★★★ Your enthusiasm is contagious! Look past confusion at work and seek out the facts. Your ability to grace a situation with calmness and understanding makes you a valuable

HEALTH Paul Donohue Dear Dr. Donohue: I have been overweight all my life. I am 45. I weigh close to 300 pounds, and I am 5 feet 5 inches tall. I have been on many diets, including medically supervised diets. I exercise as much as I can. I do not lose weight. I am considering surgery as a solution. What are your thoughts? Many doctors don’t approve. Many people are like you. They carefully watch what they eat. They exercise. They cannot, however, take off pounds. The complete explanation for obesity hasn’t been discovered. It is not always a matter of calories taken in vs. calories burned. Genes must play a role because obesity is often a family affair. I have no qualms about surgery for you. You are morbidly obese. The definition of morbid obesity is 100 pounds over ideal body weight. The “morbid” indicates that such weight shortens life and makes you prey to many other illnesses. Diabetes is a prime example. Osteoarthritis of the knees and hips is another obesity complication. Often such body weight generates high blood pressure, which

stresses the heart — already stressed by having to pump blood to the far reaches of a large body. Two popular operations for weight-loss surgery exist. Rather than dwell on surgical techniques, let me say they both reduce the stomach’s capacity to hold food. After the operation a person is not able to eat the amount of food eaten before the operation. There is no room for it. Furthermore, the small stomach sends to the brain signals indicating it is full. The brain, in turn, floods the person with a sense of satiety, and the desire to eat evaporates. Every surgical procedure has a number of possible complications. People can develop blood clots that find their way to the lungs and lead to death of sections of those organs. Infections are another complication. Stacking surgery complications against medical benefits, one must agree that surgery is the winner. ■ Dear Dr. Donohue: I have a pain in the rear — no joking. It hurts when I sit and feels a bit bet-

team player. No wonder others seek you out for advice! Use your ingenuity. Tomorrow night: Visit with a friend, in person or by phone. GEMINI (May 21-JJune 20): ★★★★ Opt for controlled splurging. You don’t always need to deny yourself. Stay upbeat with those around you. Creativity surges. Participate in an animated conversation. Express yourself. Spend some time on your home or with a family member. Intuition follows your financial decisions. Tomorrow night: Dote on another. CANCER (June 21-JJuly 22): ★★★★★ Build on your knowledge, especially if mixed information comes up. Slow down with others who might not be as energetic as you. Help someone work through his problems. Use your keen listening skills. Express your perspective in a way that others can hear. Tomorrow night: Be spontaneous. LEO (July 23-A Aug. 22): ★★★ You know a lot, but you might not choose to let everyone else know what is on your mind. Gather facts before you make a decision. Information might feel contrary, yet there might be a way to reconcile everything. Could both people be telling you the truth? Tomorrow night: Early to bed. TOMORROW’S CELEBRITY BIRTHDAYS: publisher Alfred A. Knopf (1892), actress Linda Gray (1940), athlete Jesse Owens (1913).

ter when I stand. My doctor ordered X-rays, which showed nothing. He put me on Aleve and told me to soak in a tub of warm water. I am not getting better. What could I have? This is speculation. You might have coccygodynia — pain from the coccyx. That structure is the tail end of the spine. It consists of three to five small, fused bones. Sitting slumped in a chair can irritate the coccyx, as can arthritis of the spine. A fracture from trauma is another possibility. Try this regimen for three weeks. Continue with the soaks and Aleve or any other anti-inflammatory you might want to try. Find a 3-inch-wide belt. Wrap it a bit below the normal beltline and directly onto the skin. Its position should be such that it pulls the large buttock muscles together. That provides a cushion for the coccyx and makes it more comfortable to sit. If the pain has not gone away within three weeks, go back to the doctor. A cortisone shot in the painful area might bring relief. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, Fla., 32853-6475.

High school transfers prompt review of policy By CHRIS BIRK of the Tribune’s staff

Some seek moratorium on student shifts.

A work session scheduled for sometime in October could determine the future of Columbia Public Schools’ transfer policy. The policy, along with the enforcement of school boundaries, has come into question lately, as students continue to funnel from Rock Bridge High School to an already overcrowded Hickman High School. In the past two years since the boundary change, 293 students have transferred from Rock Bridge to Hickman, school officials said. With a capacity of about 1,950, Hickman has an enrollment of 2,813. An $8.7 million renovation project is under way. In the 1998-1999 school year, the year before the redistricting was instituted, Rock Bridge actually had 15 more transfer students than Hickman. The following school year, Rock Bridge again outpaced Hickman, with 20 more transfer students. Rock Bridge’s estimated student population for the 2001-2002 school

year is 1,355, up 10 percent from last year. The school, with underutilized classrooms and facilities, continues to see prospective students swell the halls of Hickman. At a Board of Education meeting last night, Rock Bridge parent Tom Burckett called for a moratorium on transfers. “I understand that people believe that they should be able to choose where they want to go to school,” he said. But the policy “puts pressure on Hickman. Why do we keep allowing students to transfer?” The redrawing of school boundaries two years ago has spawned an influx of students to Hickman, but Superintendent Jim Ritter said that the school’s attendance area has itself seen substantial growth. “We don’t know how quickly we’ll pull that enrollment down,” Ritter said this morning. “We never expect to see that the transfers stop.” The district’s transfer policy prohibits students from switching

schools on the basis of musical or athletic interests. Otherwise, as long as students have a valid reason for transferring, requests are usually granted. Officials have also cited a sense of institutional tradition as one of the reasons why students continue to transfer to Hickman. “We think when the boundary line changes occurred, many people who live in the area have planned for years as to which high school they will attend,” Ritter said. “You’ll often have had older siblings attend those schools. I think that given some time, you run out of the brother-sister combination — the long-range planning some people have had — and they will gradually just begin to attend the school in the area in which we live.” Russ Still, school board vice president, has called for a greater examination of the transfers of the past few years. The board will discuss the issue in October.

“More information on who’s transferring, why, what actual criteria is being used,” Still said. “Is it a situation of people transferring or are more people living in the Hickman district?” But Bruce Brotzman, Rock Bridge principal, said the redrawing of school boundaries has created a temporary, and reconcilable, situation. “If the shoe were on the other foot and Rock Bridge families were redistricted to Hickman, I think that we would see the exact same thing,” he said. “If you’re brought up through the lower grades thinking you’re going to go to a certain high school, you naturally are going to identify with that school. “I think it has just a lot to do with familiarity, and I think anytime you draw a boundary line and still have a transfer process, it’s inevitable.” Reach Chris Birk at (573) 815-1704 or cbirk@tribmail.com.

House versions of drug, tax bills move to Senate

Gay pride group plans new center

JEFFERSON CITY (AP) — State representatives have passed legislation that expands Missouri’s Medicaid program and offers new medicine benefits to the lower-income elderly. But the 126-11 vote late last night came after some lawmakers raised concerns about the cost of the new and expanded programs. House approves Also last night, the House passed a measure compromise livestock pricing providing a one-time state income tax exemption for this summer’s federal tax rebates and a bill measure. Page 6B making changes to a 1999 livestock pricing law. All of the bills now go to the Senate. The health-care legislation includes a provision that more than doubles the amount of assets that the poor, blind and disabled could possess yet be eligible for the Medicaid health-care program. All Medicaid enrollees receive prescription drug coverage. The legislation also creates a new state-funded, privately administered prescription benefit for seniors who have neither Medicaid nor private prescription coverage. Such a benefit has been touted by both Democrats and Republicans as a way to help seniors in the greatest need. Yet lawmakers are wrestling with exactly how much help a cashstrapped state government can — or should — provide. Representatives approved the Medicaid expansion — raising the asset cap to $2,500 from $1,000 for individuals and to $4,500 from $2,000 for couples — without knowing how much it would cost. Legislative researchers later determined that the entire bill — with the Medicaid expansion and new prescription program — would cost about $125 million annually. Some supporters disputed that figure, citing lower estimates prepared earlier by private consultants. But others questioned the wisdom of the House-passed bill. “I’m concerned that the reason we’re doing this bill is the old” prescription drug program “costs too much, and this one costs more,” said state Rep. Roy Holand, R-Springfield. Senators had passed a bill Friday that was estimated to cost as much as $117.6 million. Legislative researchers said yesterday that the Senate estimate was inaccurate, but a new figure was not immediately available. Both versions would do away with a state income tax credit that offers up to $200 annually to many seniors to help offset their prescription drug purchases.

Teens with alternative lifestyles to benefit. On the way back from a gay pride event last year, a young man told Kylar Broadus that he dreaded going home because he couldn’t be himself in front of his parents. “This is my two hours a week that I can be gay,” he told Broadus. “It was so sad,” Broadus recalled yesterday. He hopes that doesn’t have to happen again. Broadus wants to create a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community center where people can go to get support, talk with others and just be themselves. For more than a year Broadus, who is president of Mid-Missouri Pride, vice chairman of the city’s Human Rights Commission and a transsexual, said he’s been thinking about creating a center downtown that could serve as a gathering place and a resource center for the community. Broadus said he got a group of people together and took them on a tour of a center in Springfield. Many centers start off as libraries then gradually grow into places where kids can do homework and get on computers and finally to a place where people can learn job skills, Broadus said. While securing a site might take until next spring, Broadus is seeking not-forprofit status and focusing on raising money for now. A fall festival Saturday at Lions-Stephens Park will be the group’s first event to raise money for the center. “Our youth don’t have anywhere to go,” Broadus said. Jenny Baker, a Mid-Missouri Pride

Chase ends in crash A spotlight shines on a Toyota Camry after a high-speed chase that ended in a crash on North Garth Avenue about 9:30 p.m. yesterday. Police Capt. Moon McCrary said the car was allegedly stolen from Joe Machens Ford. The chase began after police noticed the car without its lights on. The car hit a pole at Leslie Lane and Garth Avenue before striking a car on Garth. After the crash, the male juvenile driver fled into woods and was arrested on several charges.

TRIBUNE WEATHER REPORT

board member and president of the Triangle Coalition, said as a growing community, Columbia needs a center to meet the needs of the growing gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender population. Nikole Potulsky, an HIV educator at the Columbia/Boone County Health Department, said that although the university has a GLBT Resource Center — which she helped start — a more broad-based center would reach more people. “There’s no one location they can get hooked into community activities,” Potulsky said. “It would be a place where people could congregate and hopefully be a building block for people in Mid-Missouri.” While Broadus said he is looking at possible partnerships with other GLBT groups, including TRICO, PRISM, the AGAPE Church and other communities of faith, he wants the center to reach more people. The goal now is fund-raising, finding both immediate capital for the project and people to donate regularly in the future. “We want monthly sustainers to take care of the overhead costs,” he said. Broadus said the center would rely heavily on volunteers for staff, but there would also be a paid position of executive director of the center, which would begin as a half-time position and grow into a full-time position. But he wants the center to be open to everyone. “We have people with all kinds of talents in the community,” Broadus said. “We’re just beginning to tap those.”

Kile ends victory drought

Sibling rivalry Kansas freshman Lindsey Morris, left, and Missouri junior Lisa Morris will have to put their personal feelings aside when they face each other on the volleyball court for the first time tomorrow. The Tigers and the Jayhawks square off in the season opener. Please see story on Page 4B.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Darryl Kile put a lot of men on base, and that’s where he left them. Kile, backed by a two-run homer from Mark McGwire, won for the first time in almost a month to lead the St. Louis Cardinals over the Milwaukee Brewers 8-0 last night. Kile (14-10) scattered nine hits over six innings to LAST NIGHT Cardinals 8, win for the first time since Brewers 0 Aug. 12 against the New TONIGHT York Mets. He had been 0-3 Cardinals at in his previous four starts. Brewers, 7 p.m. “They had some chances (Cable 28) the first three innings and he just reached back and —————— got a little extra,” Cardinals Major league baseball manager Tony La Russa postponed its said. Kile, who had not pitched entire schedule since Sept. 2 and was tonight. Please see page 2B. pushed back three days from his scheduled start, was removed when his elbow stiffened up, La Russa said. “It was a tough game,” Kile said. “A lot of guys on base. I was in trouble the whole time.

Mac’s two-run blast sparks offense. They hit balls hard. I tried to battle with what I had today. Fortunately, we scored a bunch of runs. As far as my elbow, my elbow is not an issue.” St. Louis (79-64) closed within a half-game of San Francisco (80-64), the NL wild card leader, and moved within five games of Houston, which leads the NL Central. The Cardinals play their remaining 19 games against division opponents, including six games with the Astros. Kile pitched out of trouble in each of the first five innings. He stranded runners at second and third in both the first and second innings, and left the bases loaded in the fourth. In the third, right fielder J.D. Drew threw out Geoff Jenkins at home for the final out. “They got a few pitches to hit. They hit some balls hard,” Kile said. “Fortunately, I was able to catch a break and have them hit a line drive at a guy or make a pitch when I was in trouble and get out of the inning.” Mike Matthews finished for his first career

Pleasant surprise Frosh Roberson has impressed Tiger coaches.

Jordan all but announces his comeback A press conference will be held by middle of next week.

By DAVE MATTER of the Tribune’s staff Tyrone Roberson saw nothing but a wide open carpet of grass. It wasn’t even a hole off the left tackle — just a field of green. It was a personal invitation from Faurot Field to trample on its damp turf all the way to the south end zone. “Nothing but green,” he said. But the legs of the freshman tailback — who was just as green as Faurot, carrying the ball for just the third time in his first game — were churning as fast as his heart was beating. Instead of a sprinting for the 41-yard touchdown run, Roberson fell flat on his face for SATURDAY no gain. Missouri at “I just got too excited,” he said Michigan State yesterday, blushing. “My feet got RELATED ITEMS quicker than my body. That hole was ON PAGES 3-4B so big. “I didn’t get embarrassed, but it’s one of those things where you just want to just jump back in time and do it all over again. It was so wide-open, but I learned that in those situations to keep my composure.” Except for the minor slip, Roberson stayed on his feet for most of Missouri’s 40-6 win over Southwest Texas. He provided the Tigers a pleasant surprise with 74 yards rushing on 13 carries, averaging nearly 6 yards per rush. Once projected as a candidate to redshirt this season, Roberson ran himself to the lead of the race for MU’s primary rushing duties. Redshirt sophomore Zack Abron led the Tigers with 106 yards on 22 carries against SWT, but his lost fumble in the first quarter caught coach Gary Pinkel’s attention for all the wrong reasons. “It’s inexcusable to fumble,” Pinkel said. “Inexcusable.” Roberson, meanwhile, has showed Pinkel the speed, quickness and durability that dazzled recruiters from around the country during his career at Pattonville High School in St. Louis. Since arriving at MU in early August, the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Roberson has shown the steadiest improvement of the Tigers’ five tailbacks. “Since he’s gotten here, he’s really gotten better,” running backs coach Brian Jones said. “When he first got here, he was a bit tentative, which is very natural

save, his first in four chances this season. Jamey Wright (9-11) was rocked for eight runs on six hits in 3 2/3 innings. McGwire hit his 24th homer in the second, a 445-shot off the bottom of the scoreboard in straightaway center. Half of McGwire’s 48 hits are home runs. Placido Polanco’s bases-loaded single keyed a six-run fourth inning as the Cardinals pushed the lead to 8-0. “Up to that point, I thought I’d only made one bad pitch,” Wright said. “That was the pitch to McGwire, which I didn’t get in like I wanted to.” Drew, Albert Pujols and Jim Edmonds opened the fourth with consecutive singles to make it 3-0. Edgar Renteria hit an RBI grounder with the bases loaded and Mike Matheny added an RBI single. Polanco’s tworun single chased Wright and reliever Mike Buddie allowed a run on a wild pitch. “We put a bunch of professional at-bats together that inning,” La Russa said. “We battled. He’s tough.”

Missouri freshman running back Tyrone Roberson made an impressive debut in the Tigers’ 40-6 win over Southwest Texas. The St. Louis native had 74 yards rushing on 13 carries.

especially for freshmen. To his credit he’s worked hard and progressed daily.” Roberson was held out of MU’s season-opening loss to Bowling Green, but after a week of practice, Pinkel said the decision to play the freshman — over senior Zain Gilmore — simply came down to evaluation. Deciding who would carry the ball against the Bobcats, Pinkel couldn’t hold back. “He appears in practice day in, day out as one of our top running backs. So we had to decide what we’re going to do, play him or not,” Pinkel said. “We were going into the second game of the season, and holding people back right now is probably not very smart. We have to get our best people out on the field. “He’s got great quickness and very good speed, and we just felt we’re going to need him as the season goes on.” “His anticipation is very natural for him,” Jones added. “That’s something you try and teach in time, but he’s very gifted in that respect.” The former Pattonville Pirate gained just 1 yard on his first three carries, and after tripping on third down, Pinkel turned to Abron to convert on a fourthand-1. Two plays after Abron’s 7-yard run, Roberson was back in and promptly picked up 10 yards on his

next carry. Then came a pair of 12-yard runs and later a 21-yard gallop for MU’s longest rush of the season. As the son of a St. Louis pastor, Charles Roberson, the MU freshman has learned the virtue of humility. After watching game film of his stunning debut, Roberson wasn’t near content, saying he showed too much indecisiveness and missed a few reads. Besides he averaged close to 150 yards and a touchdown per game in high school. “It was OK,” he said unassumingly. “But that’s over. All I’m thinking about now is Michigan State.” Now listed as Abron’s backup, Roberson knows he will have more chances carrying the load this Saturday at Michigan State. The Spartans (1-0) play a more physical brand of defense, with more size and speed attacking the ball. But if he thought he saw lots of green in his collegiate debut, he’ll see more on Saturday, when 74,000 MSU fans pack a sold-out Spartan Stadium. “I just have to be ready when they put me in,” he said. “I’m glad I got a chance to go in before I play in a big game like Michigan State, just to get my feet wet, so I’m not wondering how it’s all going to be.” Reach Dave Matter at (573) 815-1788 or dmatter@tribmail.com.

CHICAGO (AP) — Michael Jordan all but confirmed yesterday he would return to play in the NBA and said the world will know for sure within 10 days. In a 30-minute conversation with The Associated Press and reporters for the Chicago Sun-Times and cnnsi.com, Jordan said the news conference to announce his decision would be held in Washington, D.C., by the middle of next week. Asked whether he was definitely coming back, Jordan smiled slyly. A moment later, he looked up and said, “I’m doing it for the love of the game. Nothing else. For the love of the game.” Jordan, who led the Chicago Bulls to six championships, has worked out all summer preparing for the expected ‘I’m doing comeback with the Washington Wizards. it for the He is president of basketball operalove of tions for the team and a part owner, meaning he has to divest his owner- the game. ship under NBA rules before returning Nothing to the court.

The only of the question remaining is whether the tengame.’ dinitis in his right knee would limit his effectiveness. — Michael Jordan, however, said the knee was Jordan sound. If it remains that way over the next few days, he said, “I’ll be ready to go.” Reached by The Washington Post later yesterday for comment that he has all but decided to return, Jordan said, “I didn’t say that. I have not said it.” This would be the second comeback for the 38-year-old Jordan. He stunned the basketball world by retiring in October 1993, saying he had nothing left to prove in basketball and wanted to give baseball a try. He played a season of Double-A ball for the Chicago White Sox team in Birmingham, Ala., but returned to the Bulls in March 1995. In the half-hour conversation on a curb outside his restaurant, Jordan dropped the conditional tense for the first time since acknowledging in April that he was serious about coming back. “I want to play for years,” he said. But Jordan made clear he wasn’t coming back to fulfill any expectations but his own. “Winning isn’t always championships. What’s wrong with helping kids find their way, teaching them the game.”

Captain Jo Ristow, still suffering from back pains, added three kills. Hickman (4-5) opened the match like a team possessed. Holding an early 4-2 lead, the Kewpies scored 11 unanswered points behind the hard-hitting of Lundquist and Spiechinger — who each had three kills during the run. “There were some mumblings beforehand about Cole Camp beating us last year,” said Ristow, who was part of a 15-2, 15-4 loss to the Bluebirds last season. “But it’s different every year so we try not to worry about the past. Early on, we were playing as a team. We were running smoothly and had a good rhythm.” With Berry on the bench healing a sore ankle, Spiechinger and Ristow gave Hickman a 2-0 lead to open the

second set with back-to-back kills. After Cole Camp scored three straight points for a 3-2 advantage, Lundquist tied the score at three apiece with an ace. Hickman scored on the next play to take a one-point lead before the Bluebirds knotted the game at 4-4. With the score tied, Hickman scored five answered points — capped by a Spiechinger ace — to lead 9-4. “I thought Hickman did a nice job of putting a lot of pressure on us, which caused us not to be on offense like we would like to be,” Cole Camp coach Brian Rice said. “We can hit the ball as good as anyone around, but we weren’t on offense enough to do that.” Newman ended the run with a kill, but Hickman answered with kills by Ristow and Stacy Faerber to make it 11-5. After a Newman ace, Kendra Stone gave Hickman a 12-6 lead and Gunn emptied his bench. Reach Jeff McNiell at sports@tribmail.com.

Grawer, who helped lead the Tigers to the second round of the NCAA Tournament last season, will begin his coaching career with the Division II Hilltoppers and follow in the footsteps of his father Rich, who was the head coach at Saint Louis University from 1984-94.

AREA SCENE MU’s Ohlsson has best round Elin Ohlsson recovered from a disastrous second round to finish with a collegiate-best 70 in the final 18 holes to post a top-10 finish in the Chip N’ Club Invitational in Lincoln, Neb. Ohlsson, a junior, tied for sixth 13 shots behind winner Martina Gillen of Kent State. Ohlsson struggled to a second-round 80 that knocked her out of contention but rallied to finish with her best-ever 54-hole score (223). Missouri finished in eighth place, 51 shots behind Kent State, in coach Stephanie Cooper’s debut as head coach. Nisha Sadekar had a top-20 finish with a 227 in 16th place. Sadekar finished with a 73 in the 36-hole finale. Maria Ohlsson made her collegiate debut with a 28th place finish at 231 and freshman Mindy Bullard and Anne Schlosser tied for 59th.

Tigers off to fast start Brandon Knaub and Chris Happ shot identical rounds of 73-72—145 to lead the Missouri men to second place after 36 holes of the Husker Invitational in Lincoln, Neb. MU at 586 was four shots behind leader Lamar going into the final round. Senior Mark McBride shot back-to-back 73s to stand in 10th place while Neal Stafford (29th) and freshman Ben Scott (36th) rounded out the scoring.

Bruins win 50th straight It was business as usual for the Rock Bridge girls tennis team, which won its 50th straight North Central Missouri Conference dual meet with a 9-0 win over Helias. The Bruins (10-1, 2-0 NCMC) have not lost a conference dual meet since a 1993 match against Marshall. Kara Hickey and Kristen Kornegay cruised to victories while sophomore Emily Roark and junior Jody Coats had the clinching win with a 7-5, 6-1 doubles win. No. 1 player Cheryl Hickey sat out the match.

Girls golf Cotton Classic: Hickman finishes ninth and Rock Bridge 17th in ■ Smith-C the Smith-Cotton Classic golf tournament. Junior Mandy Crane shot an 88 to lead the Kewpies, who also got a 91 from Rachel Griffin and a 104 from Rachel Jacoby. Stephanie Carstens led Rock Bridge with a 102. Any Fischer had a 106.

Soccer ■ Helias 7, Moberly 1: Andy Sharp scored the Spartans’ only goal in a onesided conference loss. Clay Stansberry assisted on the goal that came in the second half and made the score 5-1. Helias (4-0, 2-0 NCMC) led 5-0 at halftime. Moberly (2-4, 1-1) is hosting an eight-team tournament starting on Thursday. The Spartans are the second seed and open against seventh-seeded Southern Boone. Helias is the top seed. ■ Southern Boone 2, Kirksville 1: Nathan Bill scored his second goal of the game to give the Eagles (3-3) an overtime win at Kirksville. Kirksville scored in the 20th minute and no other goals were scored until five minutes left in the game when Bill scored. Two minutes into overtime Bill scored again to end the game. Keeper David Brown had 7 saves.

Softball ■ Kewpies finish fifth: Hickman swept a pair of Saturday games to take fifth

place in the Capital City Tournament at Jefferson City. The Kewpies (8-3) defeated Helias for the second time this season 1-0 and Fatima 10-0 in six innings in the fifth place match. Marissa Nichols scored on Amanda Holman’s RBI single against the Crusaders to advance to the fifth place match. Sam Frevert got the two-hit shutout win with three strikeouts and a walk. Renee Roberts also fired a two-hit shutout striking out seven Fatima batters. Amanda Jameson had two hits and a run scored against Fatima. Frevert had a two-RBI triple, while Ashley Endecott and Kelsy Merideth both had an RBI.

SPORTSCENE Local events and professional schedule shut down for day after terrorist attack Sports events on the professional and amateur levels screeched to a halt after the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. Events scheduled for this weekend — including college football and professional football — are also in jeopardy of being cancelled. Missouri’s soccer game with Eastern Illinois, all Hickman and Rock Bridge events as well as games at area college Westminster were cancelled. Major league baseball postponed its entire schedule of 15 games tonight after baseball commissioner Bud Selig made the decision about 3½ hours after the attacks began in New York. “In the interest of security and out of a sense of deep mourning for the national tragedy that has occurred today, all major league baseball games for today have been canceled,” Selig said in a statement. Selig also called off the owners’ quarterly meeting that was set to start today. He did not make any decisions about tomorrow’s games. “I will continue to monitor the situation and a daily basis and make ongoing decisions accordingly,” Selig said. “My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to the families and victims of this horrendous series of events.” The NFL was mulling whether to postpone this weekend’s schedule. “Regarding Sunday’s games, we will make no decision today,” league spokesman Joe Browne said. “We’ll gather information and speak to several parties within the next 24 to 48 hours.” Baseball’s minor leagues — their regular seasons over — postponed postseason games in all nine leagues. Major League Soccer postponed all four games that had been scheduled for tomorrow. The PGA Tour canceled Thursday’s starts of the World Golf Championship and two other tournaments. With air traffic shut across the country, several golfers were unable to get to St. Louis. Among those stranded were PGA champion David Toms, Phil Mickelson and Davis Love III.

Bonds continues chase at Enron HOUSTON (AP) — Barry Bonds put up some impressive numbers at brand new Enron Field last season. His only appearance there this year starts tonight and it finds the San Francisco slugger with a real chance at Mark McGwire’s major league home run record. Bonds went 7 for 16 with four home runs and five RBI in the Astros’ downtown stadium in 2000. Those numbers would make the chase very interesting as Bonds has 63 home runs — including three Sunday at Coors Field in Denver — seven off McGwire’s mark set three years ago. Astros and opposing batters have hit 206 homers at Enron this season, second among all major league stadiums to Coors, which has yielded 239. Bonds left his mark on Enron last season in two visits. His most significant homer was the longest one hit at Enron, 458 feet over the center field fence. With the Giants chasing a playoff spot, Bonds deftly diverts most talk about the home run record to his team’s playoff chances. “Everything is important right now,” Bonds said. “Every at-bat means something. You try not to watch the scoreboard. But it’s hard not to. The intensity level is a lot higher than normal.” But the home run race has intensified with the fans, especially since Bonds’ weekend performance at

Major League roundup Cubs 8, Reds 2: Roosevelt Brown, making the most of his third chance with Chicago, homered and drove in four runs as the Cubs snapped a five-game losing streak. ■ Athletics 7, Rangers 1: Barry Zito pitched a four-hitter and struck out 10 as Oakland won its eighth straight. ■ White Sox 7, Indians 1: Rookie Dan Wright (4-2) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings as visiting Chicago won the season series from Cleveland 10-9. ■

Coors Field. Fans in Denver gave Bonds standing ovations for home runs 61, 62 and 63, demanding a tip of the hat from Bonds, who surprisingly obliged. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a visiting player take a curtain call,” teammate J.T. Snow said. “They were awesome. They knew they might be seeing history and they knew they were a part of it.” Astros fans might not be as friendly. Unlike the last-place Rockies, the Astros are fighting to stay atop the NL Central. “I’d say we’ll be at capacity or near it for all three games,” Astros ticket manager John Sorrentino said. “With the pennant race and of course Bonds being here, I think we’ll be

■ Twins 3, Tigers 2: Torii Hunter tripled off Luis Pineda (0-1) in the ninth inning and scored the tiebreaking run on Matt LeCroy’s sacrifice fly as visiting Minnesota won its third straight win and improved to 11-2 against Detroit this season. ■ Mariners 5, Angels 1: Freddy Garcia (16-5) allowed three hits in eight shutout innings and matched his season high with eight strikeouts as Seattle (104-40) lowered its magic number for clinching the AL West to two.

near it.” Bonds will be comfortable at Enron regardless of the mood of the fans. He’s hit 31 homers at the Giants’ Pacific Bell Park and 32 on the road. His 32 road homers equals the major league record shared by Babe Ruth and McGwire. Bonds walked nine times during the three-game weekend at Coors Field, expanding his major league lead to 149 for the season. Ruth holds the record with 170. Bonds is the fastest to reach 63 homers. He did it in 144 games and is eight games ahead of McGwire’s record pace in 1998. The Astros say they won’t consider Bonds’ home run chase during the series. “I’m not concerned about Barry

Bonds’ home run chase,” Houston catcher Brad Ausmus said. “If he breaks the record that’s great. “But we have to be concerned with getting to the playoffs. He’s a home run threat when he steps in the box and if we have to pitch around him we’re going to pitch around him. “We have to win the ball game. If we don’t have to pitch around him, then we’re going to go after him and if he hits a home run, that’s the chance we’re going to take.” The Astros will try to stall Bonds with Dave Mlicki tonight, followed by Shane Reynolds and Wade Miller to complete the three-game series. Bonds has been successful against all three although Miller has just faced him for five at-bats. Bonds is 1 for 4 against Miller but that one hit was a solo homer. Against Mlicki, Bonds is 10 for 21 with two homers and three RBI. Reynolds has allowed two homers and two RBI to Bonds, who has eight hits in 34 at bats against Reynolds. “Obviously he’s a dangerous hitter but I’m not about to change anything I’m doing,” Miller said. “You’ve got to stay aggressive and go after him. You don’t want to put the runner on. “That can lead to problems. We’ll be careful with him but we’re going to try to get him out.” Pitching to Bonds can lead to problems too. Bonds’ 458-footer was off Miller.

Williams says Missouri will be tough foe

Busting Broncos Bengals’ Smith to practice tomorrow, may play Sunday.

Michigan State will focus on lackluster kicking game. The Associated Press

The Associated Press What was supposed to be a magical night featuring an inspirational MVP comeback and the beginning of a new Mile High era ended with a subdued celebration. Ed McCaffrey, whose popularity is evidenced by hotselling brands of cereal, mustard and horseradish, was preparing for season-ending surgery while his Denver Broncos teammates exchanged hugs and handshakes after their 31-20 victory over the New York Giants last night. “When he’s out there, a part of me is out there,” fellow Broncos receiver Rod Smith said. “From this point on, I dedicate everything to NFL him.” Playing their first game in NOTEBOOK a new stadium, the Broncos welcomed back former MVP Terrell Davis but lost McCaffrey to a broken left leg. They overcame the injury and showed why they are considered Super Bowl contenders. Davis, who had missed 24 games due to injury since 1998, rushed for 101 yards on 21 carries and went over 7,000 yards for his career as Denver ran through a New York defense that was second in the NFL against the run last year. “I said before the game that the team that rushes the ball better was going to win this game,” Giants coach Jim Fassel said. “The defense has to get itself off the field.” The Giants were holding their own before the devastating injury to McCaffrey seemed to inspire the Broncos. Smith caught a 25-yard touchdown pass that gave Denver a 21-14 lead three plays after McCaffrey was injured midway through the third quarter. The Broncos also scored on their first two possessions of the fourth, ensuring they would open $400 million Invesco Field at Mile High on a winning note. “The intensity level picked up 100 percent,” said McCaffrey’s replacement, Eddie Kennison, who had a 36-yard catch that set up Denver’s final touchdown. ■ BENGALS: Former Missouri standout Justin Smith, a first-round draft pick who signed a contract Saturday night, will practice with the team tomorrow. Coach Dick LeBeau said he might play Sunday at Tennessee. Defensive lineman John Copeland reached an injury settlement with the Cincinnati Bengals and was released. ■ LIONS: Ty Detmer will replace Charlie Batch as the starter for the Lions, who struggled offensively in an opening-game loss to Green Bay. Batch was 20 of 39 for 276 yards and no touchdowns at Green Bay, well under the 65 percent rate that Mornhinweg expected. Darren Sharper intercepted two passes, and Batch was sacked seven times. ■ TITANS: Steve McNair is listed as questionable for Tennessee’s game with Cincinnati because of a bruised shoulder. It’s the same shoulder where McNair had a mysterious infection last winter that puzzled doctors and kept

him from making his first Pro Bowl appearance last February. Coach Jeff Fisher said exams showed McNair only bruised the shoulder, although they planned an MRI exam as a precaution. ■ STEELERS: Of their half-dozen players carted off the field in the season opener, the Pittsburgh Steelers believe that only wide receiver Will Blackwell will be sidelined indefinitely. Blackwell, with a torn knee ligament, could miss the rest of the season. ■ 49ERS: John Keith, the San Francisco 49ers’ top backup safety, could miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee on the opening kickoff Sunday. Keith was blocked awkwardly on the first play of San Francisco’s 16-13 overtime victory over Atlanta. He will

undergo surgery Thursday on his knee, which also was surgically repaired in college. ■ PATRIOTS: Rookie cornerback Brock Williams signed with the New England Patriots yesterday and was placed on the injured reserve list. Williams, the Patriots’ third-round draft pick from Notre Dame, had knee surgery after being injured during the team’s minicamp. ■ OFFICIALS: The NFL, operating from a position of strength following two uneventful weeks of games with replacement officials, refused to meet with the NFL Referees Association to discuss the lockout. At least not until the union changes its request to triple salaries. As a result, replacement referees will work games for a third straight week.

St. Louis’ defense strong in opening victory The Associated Press When it counted, the St. Louis Rams’ reconstructed defense came through. The new scheme, which featured nine new starters in the opener, yielded two fourth-quarter touchdowns to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. But the defense stiffened in overtime, setting up the game-winning drive, and the bottom line in points allowed was a huge improvement in a 20-17 victory. “I can’t emphasize this enough,” coach Mike Martz said. “When you have that many new people together, to pull off a win like that is pretty big.” Last year, the defense gave up a leagueworst 29 points per game and was the main reason the Rams went from Super

Bowl champions to first-round wild card playoff losers. Only once last season did they allow fewer than 17 points, that coming in a 16-3 loss at Carolina in Game 13. Here’s how things have changed with the Rams: On Sunday, they didn’t mind losing the coin toss that handed the Eagles the ball in the extra period. “We were confident,” cornerback Dexter McCleon said. “We wanted to make up for our fourth-quarter lapses. We said in the huddle, we’ll get the ball back and the game’s over.” St. Louis likely will get defensive end Grant Wistrom back for Sunday’s home opener against the Atlanta Falcons. Wistrom, the Rams’ main pass rushing threat, has been out since injuring his left

knee in the preseason opener. “We should get Grant back,” Martz said. “Hopefully we’ll get him back.” High points for the defense included an interception by Dre’ Bly, a fumble recovery by tackle Jeff Zgonina and a forced fumble by free safety Kim Herring that was recovered by strong safety Adam Archuleta. Martz said the end result was perhaps the best team victory he’s ever had as a head coach or an assistant. “It’s just a complete win by everybody,” Martz said. “We bend a little bit, we get hurt on defense, and the offense comes back. The offense doesn’t do what they need to do, the defense gets the ball back for them, and special teams created some opportunities.” ■ WARNER OK: Kurt Warner strained his right thumb in Sunday’s win, but the

injury is not expected to sideline the St. Louis quarterback for long. Warner was hurt when he struck the helmet of a pass rusher and bent the thumb back. “But I don’t think that’s going to be an issue,” Martz said. “It’s not broken. It’s just real sore for him right now.” Warner, who was 28 for 42 for 308 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, might take limited practice repetitions tomorrow. ■ BOWEN SIDELINED: St. Louis Rams backup safety Matt Bowen will be sidelined at least six weeks after breaking his right foot Sunday. Bowen, a sixth-round pick in the 2000 draft who started two games last year, underwent surgery yesterday.

The Michigan State Spartans will be picking on someone their own size this Saturday when they face Missouri, coach Bobby Williams said yesterday. Williams said Missouri’s bulk and speed will make the team a tougher opponent than Central Michigan, the MAC team the Spartans beat Saturday. Missouri (1-1) defeated Southwest Texas 40-6 last week but lost a close game to Bowling Green on Sept. 1. COLLEGE “We’re getting, from a personnel standpoint, some athletes FOOTBALL who are very similar to ours,” Williams said. “I think this team is going to challenge us.” It should be a very different game than last Saturday’s season opener against Central Michigan, which the Spartans won at home 35-21 despite numerous errors. The Spartans collected 11 penalties and were flagged for delay of game four times. Williams downplayed the team’s problems, blaming them on nerves and inexperience. “Hey, guys, it was our first game and we played like it was our first game,” he said. “If this happens three, four, five weeks down the road, then I’m really going to be concerned.” ‘We’re This week, Williams said he’ll concentrate on Michigan State’s getting, from lackluster kicking game.

Williams said he’s considering moving freshman Eric Knott from tight end to defensive end, where he could get more playing time. He defended Knott and sophomore Damon Dowdell against the protesters who stood outside Spartan Stadium on Saturday, questioning the players’ admission to Michigan State. In June, Knott pleaded guilty to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, a misdemeanor, for a 1999 incident involving a 13-year-old girl. He served 30 days in jail and was placed on one year’s probation. Last year, Dowdell join the team after he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault and battery in the same July 1999 incident. He did not serve time in jail. “I respect their feelings, but I wish they would take some time out and get to know these two young men,” Williams said of the protesters. “I think there are some people that don’t understand the situation.” Saturday’s game will be the seventh in a series that began in 1936. Michigan State has a 4-3 record against Missouri, including a 13-10 victory last season. ■ NU’S LOHR OUT FOR YEAR: Nebraska nose tackle Jason Lohr will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee, defensive coordinator Craig Bohl said. Lohr, a 6-foot-2, 275-pound senior from Tulsa, Okla., was a second-year starter. He tore a ligament during a pile-up in the first quarter Saturday in the No. 4 Cornhuskers’ 27-10 win over Notre Dame. Lohr had four tackles in the first two games this season, including 2½ sacks. ■ TEXAS’ FLOWERS INJURED: Texas receiver Montrell Flowers, who already has two touchdown catches this year, suffered a lacerated kidney in the North Carolina game. No decision was made on how much time Flowers will miss for the No. 5 Longhorns. His progress will be evaluated over the next few days, a statement from the university said yesterday. Flowers left in the third quarter of Saturday’s 44-14 win over the Tar Heels after being hit while trying to catch a pass.

Farmer stays positive despite latest injury

Bruins end losing skid with rout of Hermann

MU’s junior QB vows to be back for Nebraska.

Rock Bridge clean-up batter Bonnie Robertson picked a perfect time to wake up her bat as her three-hit performance helped the Bruins snap a five-game losing streak with a 10-3 win over Hermann yesterday. The Bruins (3-5) had eight hits and took advantage of seven walks in the game. Robertson, who reached base four times and scored a run, said the frustration is finally over. “I had a good game, but it was a collective effort,” Robertson said. “Our big thing has been to play a complete game and we knew what we had to do to accomplish that. I’m just happy we scored some runs. We all did pretty well.” Rock Bridge jumped on the board early and never let up, scoring in every inning except the fifth. The Bruins used a three-run second and a four-run sixth to take control. All of those runs were unearned due to a two-out error in both innings. “We stopped the bleeding finally,” Rock Bridge coach Jennifer Mast said. “It’s been a rough stretch, but we finally got a win.” Marijke Buitink (3-5) went the distance allowing three unearned runs on four hits to snap her own fivegame skid. Stephanie Buckridge, who was 2 for 3 with two doubles, a walk, scored two runs and drove in a run in the romp. “Bonnie and Stephanie — what a day for them,” Mast said. “We know Bonnie has potential, but she couldn’t find the holes lately. She’s been

Sisters spice up MU-KU rivalry Tigers’ Morris to square off vs. sister Lindsey.

‘My sister always wanted me to go to MU. It was the hardest decision I ever had to make.’

By DAVID CHOU of the Tribune’s Staff Lisa and Lindsey Morris credit a little bit of distance for bringing the two of them closer together. Always tight-knit growing up together, it took Lisa, three years Lindsey’s senior, moving away to college for the two to bond. Tomorrow night, the Missouri volleyball team’s match at Kansas will not only open the Big 12 Conference season, but will match a set of sisters who will face one another for the first time. Lisa, a 5-foot-10 junior outside hitter for the Tigers, was first-team all-conference last season and has continued her stellar play this season. Over the weekend, she was named most valuable player of the Southern Illinois-Carbondale tournament, where she recorded 26 kills in one match. Lisa leads the unbeaten Tigers with an average of almost five kills per game. Lindsey is a six-foot freshman outside hitter for the Jayhawks. As a spot player in her first year, she has totaled 12 kills in the span of eight games. Growing up in Overland Park, Kan., the Morris sisters’ volleyball careers intertwined. Lisa was always a little more outgoing, a little more self-assured. When she reached eighth grade, the volleyball coach approached her about trying out for the team. What was apparent was her raw athletic talents, which were displayed prominently as she excelled at almost everything she did — gymnastics, basketball, dance and soccer. What wasn’t so apparent was her initial skepticism. Lisa had never played volleyball and wasn’t sure she wanted to play the game. Lindsey, meanwhile, was the prototypical younger sister. She was slightly more introverted and did a lot of the things her big sister did when she was growing up. She was touched with the athletic gene as well, competing in the same sports and activities as Lisa.

— KU freshman Lindsey Morris

Mark Schiefelbein photo

MU junior outside hitter Lisa Morris will get a chance to play against her sister Lindsey, who is a freshman at KU, tomorrow.

By the time Lindsey was in eighth grade, she had already played two years of volleyball for club teams, which were coached by Lisa. Lindsey remembers being introduced to volleyball by Lisa, the same person who tightroped the line of playing the sport initially. “She made it sound like so much fun,” Lindsey said. Fast-forward to 2000. Lisa had just completed her sophomore season at MU under new coaches Susan and Wayne Kreklow, while Lindsey completed her senior year at Blue Valley Northwest High School. Under the Kreklows, Lisa had a rebirth on the court, leading to her all-conference honors. The previous season had been a difficult time for Lisa. She struggled through injuries and the constant losing the Tigers endured during the 1999 season. “We provided big shoulders for her to cry on,” said Mike Morris, Lisa and Lindsey’s father. “It was a

pretty rough situation. The team morale was very low. But they really bonded through the adversity.” Lisa lost much of the passion for the game after the 1999 season. But the arrival of the Kreklows gave life to the beleaguered team. “It was time for a change and it was something we really needed,” Lisa said. “Immediately, the first week of practice you could just tell the difference. What, the coaches got us back into was really enjoying volleyball. A lot of us had gotten down and were worn out of it and it was a new and different look to get us excited about practice everyday.” Throughout the ordeal, the phone calls home to her mother, Karen, and younger sister helped Lisa get through her trials and it helped fortify their relationship. Their conversations spanned a myriad of topics and they found that their tastes, from movies to music, were identical. More important, the time away from each other allowed

Lindsey to find herself, instead of being “Lisa’s sister.” After Lindsey led Blue Valley Northwest to a state championship title her senior season, which Lisa did in her final year of high school, Lindsey had the daunting task of choosing a school to attend. Missouri and Kansas recruited Lindsey and she was tempted to follow her sister. But in the end, she decided to blaze her own trail. “My sister always wanted me to go to MU,” Lindsey said. “It was the hardest decision I have had to make. It finally came down to a gut feeling. I just felt that Icould contribute more to KU and start something completely on my own.” Behind the scenes through it all were Karen and Mike, allowing Lisa and Lindsey to make their own decisions. Mike Morris said he is “blessed” to have two “great kids.” “Our parents have always been there,” Lindsey said. “It means so much to the both of us. I can’t remember a time when they weren’t helping us out.” While the parents haven’t divulged what they will do at the match to show their support for their daughters, Lindsey said it would be hard not to notice her parents when the match begins. “They are already planning a pregame party for friends tomorrow night,” she said.“They’ve had their outfits picked out for months.” Despite the rivalry between the two schools, Lisa and Lindsey are hardly bitter towards one another. As Lindsey said, she thinks of Lisa as her best friend and vice-versa. So if winning the match meant making a kill against her sister, would either one hesitate? “No way,” Lisa said. “We wouldn’t expect any different from each another. I’d be angry if she wimped out or something and I’d tell her about it later.” Reach David Chou at sports@tribmail.com.

But any joy that Pinkel’s first victory as Missouri’s head coach delivered Saturday was overshadowed by Farmer’s latest setback. For now, Pinkel turns to Missouri’s bye week after Saturday’s game at Outlaw to resume his starting role, while senior Jim Michigan State may prove to be more of a blessing Dougherty will again be the backup than the schedule makers ever realized. After “That’s crushing,” Pinkel said. “The guy has to spraining the medial-collateral ligament in his left look at himself in the mirror and go, ‘Why me? knee Saturday night, junior quarterback Kirk Why am I going through all of this.’ I felt very bad Farmer told reporters yesterday he hopes to be back by Sept. 29, when the Tigers host MISSOURI for him after the game.

Rock Bridge came out ready to play. They played solid defense and had the hits.” Natalie Windett, Jenna Ash and Renee Holzhauser each added a hit for Rock Bridge, which meets Fulton today. Windett scored three times, while Ash, White, Holzhauser and Jessica Snellen each scored a run.

For the drivers and the team members, it’s very tough on family life.” “A lot of the guys who are coming in the sport are young and newlyweds,” said Earnhardt, who is single. “A fellow on our team just had a son, and a guy doesn’t get much time to spend with him.

He has one victory, in the Pepsi 400 at Daytona, the first in the series back at the track where his father was killed in February. He just missed winning the Monte Carlo 400 at Richmond on Saturday. Earnhardt, who’ll race in New Hampshire this weekend, admits that he’s looking forward to a break. “I’d rather the season end as soon as it could so we can have some time off,” he said. “I like being at home as much as anything.” “But with two or three races to go, we’ll be wishing we had more time to make up some more points on some people.” Earnhardt believes this year’s schedule of 36 points races, the

Taking note of NASCAR billboards in the area, he said, “It shows just how much the sport is advancing toward new markets. Hopefully, it brings a lot of new fans to the sport.” Last month Earnhardt decided to start start wearing the Hutchens head-and-neck restraint system during races. Though some experts say his father might not have died had he worn a head-and-shoulder device, Earnhardt Jr., said he is against making their use mandatory. The Hutchens device attaches the helmet to the torso and is less cumbersome than the HANS device. “I like it,” Earnhardt said. “I used it at Bristol, one of the most uncomfortable tracks for a driver, and I forgot I had it on. So it’s a decent device and I’ll be using it in the future.”

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Dale Earnhardt Jr. and four other drivers took some test runs on the new Kansas Speedway track yesterday, getting ready for the Protection One 400 Winston Cup series race on Sept. 30. The track which opened earlier this year has gotten favorable reviews from both drivers and fans, and Earnhardt called it an excellent one. However, he said that Goodyear, which supplies all the tires for NASCAR racing, has “chosen the wrong tire for the track.” “It’s real difficult to get a grip on a new, clean surface with such a hard tire,” he said. “Goodyear needs to reconsider their choice of tire.” All season drivers and their crews have been making adjustments to the new tires and how they perform on different tracks. Earnhardt, 26, is in his second sea-

NEW YORK (AP) — Wall Street found some stability yesterday, leaving stocks barely changed in an uninspired ses9,605.51 sion following last week’s big sell-off that sent the major indexes to some of +6.76 their lowest levels of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average 1,092.54 closed down 0.34 at 9,605.51, recover+7.68 ing nearly all of an early drop of more than 100 points. 1,695.38 Broader stock indicators were slightly higher. The Standard & Poor’s rose -4.46 6.76 to 1,092.54, just above its low 440.73 close for the year set Friday and at a level not seen since October 1998. The Nasdaq composite index gained 7.68 to 1,695.38. Earlier in the session, the Dow and Nasdaq had traded close to their 2001 lows. The Dow is now about 216 points above its low close for the year while the Nasdaq would have to fall another 57 to break through its own low. Declining issues led advancers yesterday nearly 2-to-1 on the New York Stock Exchange. Consolidated volume came to 1.50 billion shares, compared with 1.70 billion Friday.

Welch denies influencing NBC election call NEW YORK (AP) — Recently retired General Electric Co. chairman Jack Welch says it’s “crazy” to think he had anything to do with NBC making an election night projection that George W. Bush was elected president. But a Democratic congressman is pressing on with his effort to find out the corporate titan’s role behind the scenes at NBC last November. California Rep. Henry Waxman says he has eyewitness accounts that Welch spent two hours on election night reviewing returns and distracting the NBC executives responsible for the network’s presidential projections. Waxman, in a lengthy letter delivered Monday to NBC, said Welch’s presence was “grossly inappropriate” and vioWelch lates the spirit of separation between corporate management and NBC News. GE, the world’s largest company with a $440 billion market value, owns NBC. NBC has repeatedly denied that Welch’s presence influenced the network’s decision to call the election for Bush early on the morning after Election Day. Like its rivals ABC, CBS, CNN and Fox News Channel, NBC rescinded that call before the election was finally decided more than a month later. In an interview with The Associated Press before his retirement Friday, Welch said any suggestion he tried to influence journalists on election night is “crazy. Just pure crazy.” “The idea that I had anything to do with the election is on its face for people with IQs over 50 beyond belief,” Welch said.

Investigators seek cause of illness at plant JASPER (AP) — Health investigators say they know workers at a popcorn plant are getting sick, but they’re not sure why. Eight workers at the Gilster Mary Lee Corp. popcorn plant in Jasper have developed bronchiolitis obliterans, a rare pulmonary disease that makes it difficult for them to breathe. Recent lung tests showed that 12 workers had significant declines in lung function between April and August, after the company had made changes to lower chemical and dust levels. On Sunday, federal and state health investigators told the workers that they’re getting sick in the room where butter flavorings, soybean oil and salt are mixed. They suspect that something in the flavoring, possibly diacetyl, is causing the damage to workers’ lungs. The company has begun encouraging workers to wear respirators in the room, following recommendation by the National Institute for Occupational Safety. “There is a work-related cause of lung disease in this plant,” said Kathleen Kreiss, who participated in the investigation. Since 1992, eight workers have developed the incurable bronchial disease. Four of them are awaiting lung transplants. On Friday, six employees filed a class-action lawsuit in Jasper County Circuit Court alleging their lungs were destroyed by additives used at the plant.

Postal service seeks 3-cent stamp boost. WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service announced today that it will file for a rate increase, effective next year, that would boost the price of a first-class stamp to 37 cents. Stamp prices went up to the current 34-cent level in January and many other rates rose again this summer, but the post office still faces a deficit of $1.6 billion this year. Postal board Chairman Robert Rider said the agency had to act now because it takes nearly a year to raise rates under the cumbersome process involved. “This was a very difficult decision,” Rider said. He said the postal governing board voted unanimously to take the action. The increase in first-class stamps will be accompanied by increases in other types of mail as well. Rider said the overall rise in rates will be just under 9 percent. “We do this because we have a responsibility to assure the financial viability of the postal service,” Rider said. He said the agency has been affected by the declining economy, which reduced mail volume at the same time it’s having to spend more for fuel and salaries. In addition, Rider noted that the post office is involved in contract negotiations with unions representing some 700,000 employees, which raises the question of additional future costs to the agency. Earlier in the year, the agency’s deficit had been projected as high as $3 billion but postal managers have worked actively to reduce spending and imposed a freeze on new construction. On Friday, Postmaster General Jack Potter announced cuts of 800 management jobs at headquarters and a restructuring of field offices that will also reduce management staff by several hundred people. Potter said today that because of the continuing financial problems the construction freeze will remain in place and that management will be looking for further ways to cut costs. Raising postal rates is a complex process. The agency’s request for an increase is submitted to the independent Postal Rate Commission, which holds hearings and has 10 months to rule on the rate request. Only after that ruling can the postal service impose the higher rates. That lengthy process means a rate request filed this month would be unlikely to take effect before the autumn of 2002. The rate commission has the power to modify or reduce the requested increase. That is what happened a year ago when the post office had sought the higher rates that took effect in January 2001. Because the rates allowed by the commission were less than had been sought by the agency, postal officials imposed the January increase under protest and asked for reconsideration. When the commission declined to modify its ruling, the board of governors then had the authority, if voting unanimously, to overrule the rate commission. That is what happened this summer.

Blockbuster reducing VHS inventory in favor of DVDs The Dallas Morning News DALLAS — Blockbuster Inc. has seen its future and decided it comes in a smaller box. The nation’s biggest video rental chain said yesterday that it is accelerating its plans to capitalize on the longterm, higher-margin DVD rental business in an industry driven for years by VHS. In time for the holiday season, Blockbuster said it is removing about 25 percent of its VHS inventory from its stores to make room for the growing number of DVD releases. Also, it is thinning out video game titles to accommodate new games due out later this year with the introductions of the X-Box from Microsoft and Gamecube from Nintendo. The film and game selections being eliminated contribute less than 1 percent of Blockbuster’s annual revenue, which last year was $4.96 billion, the Dallas-based company said. Blockbuster said the films won’t be from classic library selections such as “Gone with the Wind” or “Citizen Cane” but declined to offer any examples. “We believe this is the opportune time to capitalize on the continuing explosive growth rate of DVD. The format has clearly gone mainstream,” said John Antioco, Blockbuster’s chairman and CEO. “Consumers have demonstrated that they prefer to rent, rather than buy their movies, a trend we predict will continue.”

The decision is an important endorsement of DVD, which offers better picture quality than VHS but hasn’t been fully embraced by consumers. While DVD represents the latest evolution in an industry that abandoned Beta for VHS, experts say DVD won’t soon supplant VHS as the industry’s primary video format. Jenny Smith, a spokeswoman for the Consumer Electronics Association, said VCR sales are dropping but people are still buying them. “So many people have VHS archives now, and VCRs are so cheap, you can get one for $50, so if it breaks most people are still replacing it.” So far this year, factories have filled orders for 9.6 million VCR players from retailers and buying groups, according to the Washington-based trade organization. That’s a significant number, even though it’s down 31.3 percent from the same period last year. DVD sales are growing faster. So far, 6.2 million players have been delivered by suppliers, representing a 54 percent increase over the same period in 2000. Most consumers are still debating whether to buy a DVD player. At a Blockbuster in Grapevine, Texas, yesterday, Diane Harris said she’s been holding out on a DVD purchase until the prices dropped. “I’ve been putting off getting a DVD player, but I guess I’ll have to give in now. It’s just like it was when they switched from cassette” audio “tapes to CDs,” she said.

Verizon seeks buyer for local phone lines Exchanges in Missouri, 2 other states for sale. By STEVE FRIEDMAN of the Tribune’s staff Verizon Communications Inc. is looking for a buyer for its roughly 370,000 Missouri phone lines, which include the lines for nearly 70,000 customers in the Columbia area. Formerly known as GTE locally, Verizon made the potential sale of the Missouri lines public in its second quarter earnings report, filed with the federal Securities and Exchange Commission in midAugust. According to the report, the telecommunications company is exploring the sale of 1.2 million access lines in Alabama, Kentucky and Missouri. Verizon’s Missouri spokesman Don Neely confirmed the sale yesterday but wouldn’t give further details. “This is still in its exploratory stages and if Verizon doesn’t find a buyer, we will still run these properties,” Neely said. Verizon has been the local phone provider in Columbia and six other Boone County towns since July 2000, when the multibillion-dollar merger between GTE and Bell Atlantic was completed. GTE had been the telephone provider in this area since the mid-1950s. Along with the Boone County region, Verizon also services the Branson area and an area around west-

ern St. Louis that includes St. Charles and Wentzville. The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the sale potentially could net Verizon $4 billion. The journal reported telecommunications companies like Alltel Corp., CenturyTel Inc. and Telephone & Data Systems have expressed interest in the three states. The sale is Verizon’s effort to shed itself of slowgrowth regions in order to concentrate on major metropolitan areas, the Journal reported. If a sale is approved, it would be the second time Verizon has shed itself of phone lines. In June 2000, the company sold approximately 417,000 lines in Iowa, Nebraska and Oklahoma. The company also sold nearly 116,000 lines in Missouri last year to Spectra Communications. Verizon operates nearly 60 million access lines in 13 states and the District of Columbia. Its net sales were $64.7 billion last fiscal year. The company employs about 275 workers in Columbia. Of the three states targeted for sale, Kentucky has the most access lines with 597,718, followed by Missouri with 369,320 and Alabama with 304,962. Verizon operates 102 telephone exchanges in Missouri. Reach Steve Friedman at (573) 815-1713 or sfriedman@tribmail.com.

House passes livestock pricing bill JEFFERSON CITY (AP) — In a compromise praised by some and criticized by others, the state House passed legislation changing the state’s one-of-a-kind price discrimination law for livestock sales. The bill, approved 93-45 late last night, is intended to entice meat packers to resume paying cash based on the live weight of cattle, hogs and sheep. It now goes to the Senate. Packers pulled out of Missouri’s cash markets in May after the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a 1999 law prohibiting price discrimination. Since then, packers have been buying livestock only on a quality-of-meat formula that pays farm-

ers after the slaughter. Some farmers insist they have fared worse financially. The House bill repeals the 1999 language and replaces it with fairtrade wording similar to that already used without controversy in the federal Packers and Stockyards Act. The House bill also removes the ability of individuals to sue for alleged price discrimination — one of the main reasons packers cited while pulling out of cash markets. “It is a compromise, and I think we will bring our packers back into the cash markets,” said state Rep. Merrill Townley, R-Chamois. Rep. Gary Kelly, D-Richmond,

called the bill “a compromise we can all live with,” adding that one of the farmers who had challenged the original law in court supports it. But other legislators said the changes in the House bill would do little or nothing to attract packers back into the cash markets. The only thing that would, they said, is to drop all references to livestock price discrimination from the state’s statutes. “I’m afraid that what we’ve done here is leave the message that buyers are not welcome in the state of Missouri,” said Rep. Bubs Hohulin, RLamar, who raises cattle. “I think we are going to say we’ve solved the problem when, in fact, we have not.”

Indiana hog farmer defies pork checkoff fee LaGRANGE, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana hog farmer has become the first in the country to fight the nation’s pork checkoff fee by sidestepping slaughterhouses and selling directly to Chicago restaurants. Greg Gunthorp and his wife Lei quit paying the checkoff in January, after depressed pork prices caused their 65-acre farm in northern Indiana to lose money the past two years. Instead, they joined forces with two ostrich growers to buy a locker plant in nearby Michigan that could tailor cuts of meat for trendy chefs. The move has been profitable enough for their 50-sow operation that Lei Gunthorp was able to quit her nursing job. It also made the couple the first hog farmers in the nation to take action against the fee, according to the National Pork Board, the nonprofit group that administers the $50 million program.

The defiant couple told The Indianapolis Star they hope to topple a program that’s been a source of controversy for months. “We are not going to pay to promote our competition,” Lei Gunthorp said. The checkoff is a fee paid by the nation’s hog farmers — 45 cents for every $100 of a pig’s value when it is sold — to the National Pork Board to support research and promote the pork industry. Funds from the fee paid for the highly successful “Pork, the Other White Meat” ad campaign. Hog farmers, upset with how promotional dollars were spent and complaining that only large corporate producers saw any benefit, voted in January to end the checkoff. But U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Ann Veneman overturned the results after several producer groups filed lawsuits claiming the Department of Agriculture had no legal authority to

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Twenty-one people were indicted yesterday on charges they were part of a ring that allegedly fixed $1 million winners in McDonald’s popular Monopoly and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” games. The indictment alleges that since the late 1980s Jerome Jacobson, director of security for Simon Marketing Inc., embezzled more than $20 million worth of winning McDonald’s game pieces from his employer. Jacobson distributed the winning game pieces to accomplices who redeemed them or recruited others to redeem them for prizes, some worth as much as $1 million, the indictment says. On Aug. 22, Attorney General John Ashcroft announced the arrests of eight people in the scandal, including Jacobson. Jacobson is charged in the indictment with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and eight counts of mail fraud. The others face similar charges. The maximum penalty for conspiracy to commit mail fraud is five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and restitution. The government is also seeking to seize money, cars or other items bought with the winnings.

hold the election in the first place. On Aug. 31, the USDA warned the Gunthorps they are violating the law and are obligated to pay the checkoff while their case works its way through the system. The Park Board notified them that charges on their balance are growing by 18 percent each year. But the couple plans to fight the checkoff past the USDA and in federal court if necessary. Pork Board Executive Vice President Michael Simpson told The Star the board does not comment on individual cases until they become public. USDA spokeswoman Becky Unkenholz also refused to comment. Three court challenges to the beef checkoff are under way in Kansas, Montana and South Dakota, and the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a mushroom checkoff violated the free speech rights of a Tennessee mushroom company.

Republicans draft standby spending cuts

Report shows EPA underestimated risk of arsenic in water

Reductions part of proposal to keep Social Security safe.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A National Academy of Sciences report shows that the Environmental Protection Agency has greatly underestimated the cancer risks of arsenic in drinking water, according to EPA officials and other environmental experts familiar with the report. The report being issued to EPA Administrator Christie Whitman this week, which has been kept under wraps, says the cancer risks are much higher than the agency had previously acknowledged under the Clinton and Bush administrations, the officials said yesterday. For the first time, the Bush EPA is conceding it will be hard-pressed not to accept arsenic standards for drinking water at least as stringent as those adopted by the Clinton administration but put on hold by the Bush administration. “This makes it more difficult,” Whitman spokeswoman Tina Kreisher said yesterday. “Their study reinforces the cancer risks. ... If anything, they believe that there is more risk than the EPA thought previously.” In particular, the 189-page report reinforces that the cancer risks are high even for low levels of arsenic in tap water. The current standard of 50 parts per billion of arsenic in drinking water has been in place since 1942. Arsenic is both a naturally occurring substance and industrial byproduct, entering the water supply from natural deposits and pollution. It is found at high concentrations in Western mining states and other areas heavy with coal-burning and copper smelting.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Unwilling to wait for clear guidance from President George W. Bush, congressional Republicans are crafting standby spending cuts meant to showcase support for Social Security at the same time they push for new tax cuts to spur the economy. “It’s important to show some leadership and not just stand on the sidelines,” Senate Republican leader Trent Lott told reporters yesterday as he suggested a tax cut aimed at easing the payroll tax. “We’ve got to be looking at ways to address the problem” of a sluggish economy. While Lott and others call for tax cuts, House Republicans arranged for a budget committee session to approve conditional spending cuts. The reductions would take effect in the next fiscal year, soon after Oct. 1, if it turned out the government had dipped into the Social Security surplus in the current year. In a campaign-season pledge issued in 1999, Republicans said they would not use excess Social Security tax receipts for any purpose other than paying down the debt. “We will cut spending in order to achieve the full amount of debt reduction equal to the Social Security surplus,” said Rep. Jim Nussle, the Republican chairman of the Budget Committee. He said agency heads would be given latitude in applying the cuts, and a few programs, such as those affecting veterans and low-income housing recipients, would be exempt. Benefit programs such as Medicare and Social Security would likewise be shielded. Nussle said the White House “has been informed about it, but we have no signal one way or the other” what the president’s position is on the legislation. He also prodded the Democraticcontrolled Senate to act, saying it would be a “a tragedy for the Senate not to keep the commitment to the Social Security surplus.”

Senate Minority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., center, calls on a reporter yesterday during a news conference in the Capitol that focused mostly on matters relating to President George W. Bush’s budget.

Initial Democratic reaction was negative, though. “It’s a gimmick. It’s clearly an attempt to get around the fact that their budget director is bringing them really bad news, which is the tax cut has put them into spending the Social Security trust fund,” said Kori Bernards, spokeswoman for House Democratic leader Dick Gephardt. Whatever the fate of the proposal, the spending cut bill is the latest manifestation of concern among Republicans over the slowing economy and the potential political fallout in next year’s midterm elections. Bush has expressed concern publicly on numerous occasions but thus far has resisted pressure from Republicans to support steps beyond the economic program he had previously outlined. Ari Fleischer, Bush’s press secretary, said the president was “open-minded” about suggestions coming from congressional Republicans. But, he added, “the president has faith and confidence that the economic recovery plan that is still going into effect, that is still being received, will get the job done.” Among the steps that administration officials cite is a continuing stream of tax rebate checks being mailed to taxpayers, as well as the increase in take-home pay that will result from an adjustment in tax withholding tables in January.

has also called for expanded trade authority and enactment of his energy legislation, with its call for expanded oil exploration and drilling. Spending cut legislation aside, there is widespread agreement among Republicans in the House and Senate for a tax cut. While a cut in the capital gains tax is the reduction mentioned most frequently, Lott suggested a cut in the payroll tax, as well. “There are people, at the entry level, who are hit very hard by the payroll tax,” he said. Rolling back a portion of the payroll tax that goes to Social Security and Medicare would give a tax cut to more than 30 million workers — most earning less than $44,000 a year — who were left out of this year’s $40 billion in tax rebate checks because they didn’t have enough taxable income to qualify. Republicans have been pushing to cut the capital gains tax, which now tops out at 20 percent, to 15 percent for two years as an economic stimulant and to boost government revenue as people sell investments. Many Democrats criticize that proposal as tilted toward the wealthy and worry about the long-term costs. Sens. Phil Gramm, R-Texas, and Zell Miller, a conservative Democrat from Georgia, said they would introduce legislation today to cut the capital gains tax.

One of former President Bill Clinton’s last actions, three days before leaving office in January, was to adopt a tougher standard of 10 ppb, but the Bush administration suspended that, citing the high costs to local communities of implementing that standard and calling for additional study while questioning the scientific basis for the Clinton rule. The standard was suspended until next February, leaving in place at least for the time being the 50 ppb arsenic standard. The Bush administration had said the EPA lacked evidence to justify the $200 million annual cost to municipalities, states and industry of meeting the Clinton standard by 2006. Whitman also had convened an EPA working group to study costs to local communities. Now, however, the academy report says that even at 3 ppb, the risk of bladder and lung cancer is between four and 10 cancer deaths per 10,000 people, according to one person who’s seen the report. The EPA’s maximum acceptable level of risk for the past two decades for all drinking water contaminants has been one in 10,000. “It really is a bombshell because it says EPA severely underestimated the cancer threat by several fold,” said Erik Olson, a senior lawyer for the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group whose lawsuits forced the Clinton administration to propose a new standard. “The bottom line is that they clearly should be going below 10 parts per billion in the new standard.”
