Panel discourages US and
USSR joint mission to Mars
WASHINGTON - Joint missions to Mars by the United States and
the Soviet Union are too risky now, a panel said yesterday. It rec-
ommended instead that the two nations follow "a graceful path" of
coordinated but independent exploration.
"The United States and USSR have no prior experience with the degree
of cooperation necessary to carry our a technical project of this
complexity or magnitude," said a committee of the National Research
The committee said it was concerned "about relying on the consistency
of the relationship over a period of a decade or more into the future."
The panel's report appeared to chill the idea frequently expressed by
many experts that Mars would be explored jointly by the Soviets and
Americans, doing together what would be too expensive for either nation
to do alone.
Mandela honored at concer
LONDON - A sellout crowd of 72,000 people danced, sang and
chanted "Mandela is free!" at a televised rock concert yesterday night
honoring Nelson Mandela and his fight to end apartheid in South Africa.
Waving their fists in the air and clapping their hands, anti-apartheid
supporters and rock 'n' roll fans filled the stadium's wet playing field and
most of the stands. A huge banner across the stage read: "The Struggle Is
My Life," the title of a book of Mandela's writings and speeches.
Mandela and his wife, Winnie, arrived at Wembley Stadium about an
hour after the concert started, beaming and waving their fists in the air as
the crowd cheered. They were joined in the stadium's executive box by
Adelaide Tambo, wife of African National Congress (ANC) President
Oliver Tambo. Tambo is recovering from a stoke in Sweden.
The concert lineup featured Aswad, Britain's top reggae group, Bonnie
Raitt, Neil Young, Simple Minds, Soul II Soul, the Neville Brothers,
Peter Gabriel, Anita Baker, Tracy Chapman, Miriam Makeba and Oscar-
winning actor Denzel.Washington. He played murdered Black activist
Steve Biko in-the film "Cry Freedom."
Reps. propose tax changes
LANSING - Most citizens won't have to think about taxes for an-
other year, but some lawmakers said yesterday they hope to make the
system more simple and fair by proposing a Taxpayer Bill of Rights.
However, Treasurer Robert Bowman said he already has in place nearly
everything suggested by Sen. Doug Carl, (R-Utica), and Rep. Richard
Bandstra, (R-Grand Rapids).
Among the recommendations is creation of a taxpayer grievance
council made up of five citizens appointed by the Legislature. It would
review documented taxpayer complaints and may make a small financial
award if the department was at fault.
The two lawmakers plan to introduce legislation next week that will
put those recommendations into state law.
Bowman said several ways to dispute a tax balance already exist.
They include a grievance officer at the head of every tax division., a
department wide problem resolutions office, the independent Michigan
Tax Tribunal and the court system.
Engler releases tax returns
LANSING - Senate Majority Leader John Engler pledged yesterday to
veto extravagant government spending and hold the line on taxes as he re-
leased his income tax information for the last eight years.
"I challenge the Legislature to watch my pen because I will use it to
veto what I consider extravagant and unnecessary spending," he said after
making a reference to President Bush's threat to Congress to "read my
lips" about his opposition to tax increases.
Engler, the likely Republican gubernatorial candidate, released his tax
data 11 days after Gov. James Blanchard's campaign manager Gary
Bachula said the governor would refuse to debate him unless he did so.
"I think what that shows is that John Engler is not someone who has
been enriched as a result of public service, that my income has been
derived from the job that I have had here," Engler said.
Engler reported 1989 income of $60,170, including $58,631 from his
salary as majority leader and $1,300 in honoraria. He said he paid $6,668
in federal income taxes and $2,540 in state income taxes.
Funding crisis may close
one-fifth of Mich. hospitals
LANSING - About 20 of Michigan's 99 small hospitals could close
in the next five years if they can't boost revenues and reduce the cost of
caring for the uninsured, according to a survey released yesterday.
"Almost one-fifth of small hospitals are saying they're not going to
make it. Our greatest concern remains that we're going to take a step
backward in terms of access," said Nancy Fiedler, a spokesperson for the
Michigan Hospital Association (MHA).
Small hospital administrators responding to the MHA survey said the
failing health of the institutions is due to the growth in Michigan's
elderly population, reductions in Medicare and Medicaid payments, and
steadily rising medical malpractice insurance rates.
Survey respondents estimated nine small hospitals will close in the
next year and 14 will close within two years. Since 1983, nine small
hospitals have shut down operations in Michigan.
