from 'U'
About 20 Martha Cook residents
crowded alongside Channel 4 News
meteorologist Chuck Gaidica Friday,
making their television debut across
the Detroit metro area.
Gaidica was broadcasting his new
"Backyard Weather Show" in Ann
Arbor, spending about two hours
mingling with building residents and
shooting two live weather spots.
Martha Cook resident Melissa
Gessner, an LSA junior, wrote to
Gaidica and invited him to do a live
weather broadcast from the backyard
of the building.
Since the leaves and the tempera-
ture had fallen since Gessner wrote
him, Gaidica shot the segments in
Martha Cook's Gold Room, the
Most extravagant room in the build-
Residents serenaded Gaidica with
"Hail to the Victors" and presented
him with a Michigan sweatshirt.
During the filming, one student held
up a sign that read, "Hi Mom, send

Channel 4 meteorologist Chuck Gaidica forecasts the weather Friday from Martha Cook.'

"Chuck encourages people to
write in, and I thought it would be
interesting," said Gessner, who had
thought the courtyard's fall colors
would make a nice background for
the show.

The station started a weekly trav-
elling show two months ago. "We
wanted to take weather out to some
people's backyards and bring a little
slice of life from different communi-
ties," Gaidica said.
Although Gaidica has been fore-

casting weather for about nine years,
he says the job is never boring. "It's
always a different change," he said.
Before joining Channel 4, Gaidica
worked as a meteorologist for Chan-
nel 2 in Detroit.

Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
U.N. soldiers nab guerillas
JERUSALEM - A Palestinian guerrilla, who kept awake during an
18-hour hostage drama by cutting his arm with a bayonet and pouring salt
in the wound, killed a Lebanese captive yesterday before being over-
powered by U.N. soldiers.
The gunner, who officials said was high on drugs or alcohol, belonged
to a five-member Palestininan squad that seized a U.N. observation post
in south Lebanon about 8 p.m. Saturday.
The guerrillas took the victim - a Lebanese technician - and five
Finnish soldiers hostage after their plans to launch an attack in Israel
failed, security sources in south Lebanon said.
U.N. officials said the Palestinians told them they belonged to Yasser
Arafat's Fatah faction.
Reports from Beirut said the guerrilas were turned over to the Shiite
Moslem militia Amal and that Amal planned to release them to Fatah
officials today.
Congress to elect its leaders
WASHINGTON - Congress is preparing for a final fling at the ballot
box - this time to elect its own leaders for the next two years.
The jobs at stake range from leadership in the Senate to the second and
third positions in the line of succession to the presidency of the United
Only a few of the leadership spots are contested, topped by the fight to
succeed Robert Byrd of West Virginia as Senate majority leader.
Byrd will step down from top party leadrship to succeed John Stennis
of Mississippi as Senate president pro tempore, a largely ceremonial job
that is third in the line of succession to the presidency, behind the vice
president and speaker of the House.
Detentions over capacity
Overcrowding is a problem at Michigan's juvenile detention facilities,
and state officials expect it to worsen as youths are convicted under laws
that took effect Oct. 1.
"They're all at capacity, every institution we have," said Daniel
Chaney, regional director of the Department of Social Services' Wayne
County Residential Care office.
For example, the Wayne County Youth Home, with a capacity of 215
people, housed 289 juveniles last Wednesday. Officials say 36 of those
youths were already committed to DSS and were waiting for openings in
training schools or other facilities.
By 1991, the state expects to need 952 beds for juveniles who have'
committed felonies. Now there are 713 such beds, said Larry Miesner,
director of DSS' residential car division.
Woman kills tenants for
Social Security. checks
SACRAMENTO - Police found a fifth corpse yesterday buried in tne
yard of a tree-shaded Victorian boardinghouse and hunted for the 71-year-
old owner of the building suspected of killing the elderly victims and
cashing their Social Security checks.
Investigators said-they believe seven or eight bodies may have been
buried in the yard, based on the number of residents who are missing,'
Homicide Lt. Joe Enloe said.
Authorities were seeking boardinghouse manager Dorothea Puente for
questioning, police Sgt, Bob Burns said.
A resident of the rooming house, John McCauley, 59, was arrested
yesterday for investigation of being an accessory to homicide, Enloe said.
Authorities said they believe he helped Puente dig the graves of the
The Puente apparently had been cashing some of the victims' Social
Security checks for several months, Enloe said.
Pet owners persuaded to
pack "pooper-scoopers"
SAUSALITO, Calif. - In an effort to keep city residents out of legal
doo-doo, dog owners are signing a pledge to use "pooper-scoopers" when
they take their pets into public places.
The City Council has postponed a decision on a law requiring residents
to carry the devices to see if dog owners can solve the problem

"It is a valid complaint and I'm sure the dog owners of Sausalito can do
better," said Doug Lloyd, a financial and real estate manager who is a"
leader of the pledge campaign in this town across the Golden Gate Bridge
from San Francisco.
A "spirit of responsibility" could take the place of any new law, which
many are likely to ignore anyway, said Lloyd.
