Senate votes down pay raise
WASHINGTON - The Senate yesterday night voted to reject a
proposed 51 percent congressional pay raise, but Speaker Jim Wright said
the House would let it take effect next week and then vote to reduce it to
"a decent raise" of'30 percent.
The Senate voted 95-5 to reject the raise for Congress and other top
federal official, and to change the law to eliminate current procedures
which allow a pay increase to take effect without a vote.
The vote against the pay increase was lopsided but largely symbolic,
since both chambers must vote to block it. House procedures make it
easier to protect a pay raise in that chamber, and Wright continued as the
main target of opponents as he maneuvered to protect most of the raise.
House members' public positions have been against the raise, which
must be approved by both chambers of congress before Feb. 8 or it will
automatically take effect.
Rosa Parks hospitalized
DETROIT - Civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks was listed in fair
condition and said to be resting comfortably yesterday at Harper Hospital,
where she was taken after suffering chest pains.
Parks, 75, was admitted Wednesday and has been undergoing diagnostic
testing, hospital spokesperson Zoila Brown said. No tentative release date
has been set, said Brown, adding Parks probably would undergo a few
more days of tests.
Parks is noted for her defiance of a law requiring Blacks to yield their
seats to whites on city buses. In 1955, she refused to give up her seat to a
white man on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.
Parks was treated in March 1988 at John Hopkins University Medical
Center, where she had a pacemaker inserted for an irregular heartbeat. The
illness may cause some of Parks' activities for this month's celebration
of Black History Month to be rescheduled.
Palestinians reject Israeli plan
JERUSALEM - Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir on Wednesday
offered to withdraw soldiers from some cities in the occupied lands if
Palestinians agree to limited autonomy as an interim solution to the
Palestinian leaders rejected the idea, saying they would settle for
nothing less than-a Palestinian state. It was Shamir's most conciliatory
remark yet on Israel's future role in the occupied West Bank and Gaza
"Compared to his old stand, he has moved a step, but it is a far step 4
from meeting the demands or conditions of the Palestinian people. We
can't accept it," said Faisal Husseini, considered the top pro-PLO leader in
the occupied lands.
"The peace process will be comprised of two stages," Shamir said.
"First an interim condition and this will include full autonomy. In the
second stage (there will be) direct negotiations without preconditions."
Tampa regains calm; drug
suspect dies in custody
TAMPA - A drug suspect whose arrest sparked an hour long rock I
and bottle throwing melee died of cardiac arrest while in police custody,
authorities said yesterday.
The predominantly Black neighborhood of College Hill was calm a day
after about 100 officers in riot gear quelled the Wednesday night outbreak.
75 to 100 young people took to the streets in protest, following the arrest
of Edgar Allen Price in an undercover bust.
Price struggled with two undercover officers after an informant made a
drug buy in College Hill. He was carrying 25 pieces of crack cocaine and
a 25-caliber derringer in his pockets, police spokesperson Steve Cole said.
It was the latest of at least a half-dozen violent outbreaks in the
College Hill section in the past two years and the second in Florida in
Bo Peep lost her sheep;
who lost MSU's lamb?
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Humane Society is
offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction
of culprits in the death of a lamb at a Michigan State University fraternity
The lamb was stolen from the MSU sheep barn and tied to a porch
railing at the Sigma Chi fraternity house, where it hung itself when it
jumped from the porch on Jan. 18.
"The public reaction to this, from all over the state, has been
overwhelming," said Humane Society investigator Dale Seguin.
"People are demanding that we get involved in this."
The Humane Society, headquartered in Detroit, also has assigned an
investigator to assist MSU's Department of Public Safety in identifying
those responsible for the death of the animal.
MSU Public Safety Cmdr. Andrew McEntee said yesterday that
officers have uncovered no new information in the case.
