Space Shuttle astronauts
prepare for Hubble repairs

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.(AP) -
Two astronauts acting as Hubble Space
Telescope mechanics twisted bolts and
tried out a swivel work platform yester-
day in NASA's final spacewalk before
the real repair job in December.
Crewmembers Carl Walz and James
Newman testedapower ratchet and five
other Hubble tools during their seven-
hour spacewalk. Before going back in-
side the shuttle Discovery, they held up
asign with a picture of the ace of spades
and the words: "Ace HSTTool Testers."
The flight director for the Hubble
repair mission, Milt Heflin, said the
spacewalk was "a confidence builder, a
day that I consider adding to our mar-
gins for success."
The first-time spacewalkers spent
most of their outing working along the
edge of Discovery's payload bay. At

times, they dangled overboard as the
shuttle whizzed around the world, their
tethered tools floating around them.
Walz and Newman zipped through
their steps, evaluating each tool and
task and comparing it to their water tank
training on Earth. They gave lots of As,
but some Cs and even Ds, too.
Walz had trouble using the battery:
powered ratchet to tighten and untighten
bolts with his feet unrestrained. "Your
body just goes whipping around," he
said.
The only problem came at the end
when the door on a portable tool box
jammed. It took both men a half-hour to
close it; by then, their planned six-hour
walk had stretched to seven hours.
It was NASA's third and final
spacewalk to prepare for Hubble re-
pairs.

A record five and possibly seven
spacewalks are planned for the 11-
day telescope repair mission, mak-
ing it the most daunting and ambi-
tious shuttle flight to date. Fourspace-
walkers will take turns going out in
teams of two to install corrective
lenses and new solar panels, gyro-
scopes, camera, computer memory
board and more.
The five-member crew has one
job remaining: retrieving an ultra-
violet telescope released from Dis-
covery on Monday. Discovery will
swing by Sunday and get the US..
and German-sponsored spacecraft.
Although astronomers requested
another day in orbit for the telescope
to gather extradata, shuttle managers
decided to bring Discovery home on
Tuesday after nine days.

Florida residents protest deadly reputation

MIAMI (AP) - Michael Harvey
was shot dead by an unknown killer on
a dark street the weekend between the
two highly publicized slayings of for-
eign tourists in Florida.
Harvey's stepfather didn't appear
on Oprah. His mother wasn't invited to
the governor's mansion. No European
newspaper wrote an indignant head-
line. Local reporters never even men-
tioned him. No reward was offered.
Harvey took a bullet in the chest late
the night of Sept. 11. He died in the
center of Pierce Street, among neat,
single-family homes in the Black,
middle-class Miami suburb of Rich-
mond Heights.
"We were advised by a passerby
that a body was lying in a pool of
blood," Metro-Dade police spokesper-
son Lizette Williams said after leafing
through reports to find the case. "We
have no subject information, no clue as
to the motive. We have no suspect."
In Florida, many more Michael
Harveys die than do foreign tourists.

Last year, Linda Harless - a statis-
tician at the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement- said the state recorded
1,191 murders. Only 22 of the victims
were non-residents. In 1991,when 1,276
people were killed, 30 came from out-
side Florida. In 1990, 29 of that year's
1,387 murder victims were non-Florid-
ians.
Such imbalance in the numbers and
resultant media attention also caught
the eye of New York Tunes columnist
Russell Baker, who wrote in editions of
the paper published the day Harvey
would die:
"It's a sign of the American decline
that eight tourists murdered in Florida
capture national headlines when the
thousands and thousands of Americans
routinely murdered cause such little
splash. It reverses the old joke about
American narcissism('Two Americans
Injured as Asia Earthquake Kills
200,000'). When it comes to murder,
it's now Americans who don't matter."
Yesterday, Harvey's stepfather, tele-

phone company employee James
Latham, buried his stepson after a fu-
neral serviceatCovenantBaptistChurch
in Florida City.
Earlier, ashe repaired hurricane dam-
age to windows at his home - where
Harvey also lived - Latham said he
didn't want to talk about his stepson's
murder or provide any details about his
life. It pains Harvey's mother too much,
he added.
He said he can understand why the
killings of German and British visitors
get more attention.
"I've lived in Miami since 1963. I
know how itworks,"Latham said. "This
country isn't geared toward human be-
ings. It's geared toward only one thing:
m-o-n-e-y."
Lisa Hardeman's stepson and daugh-
ter-in-law were murdered in 1981 in
Palm Beach County. Now she's a coun-
selor for Dade County's victims ser-
vices unit. It's unfair to say families in
unpublicized cases begrudge the atten-
tion given the tourist murders, she said.

"Some people feel very resentful
that their case is not treated with the
same media attention as a police killing
or a tourist," she conceded. "But there
are those who don't want any public-
ity."
Most, she said, are in shock. While
grieving for their loved one, they are
forced to deal with police, prosecutors,
courts and attorneys.
"I wish they wouldn'tshow the blood
in the road. I wish they wouldn't show
the body covered with a blanket - can
you imagine how the family of victim
feels seeing that on TV?" she asked.
Such thoughts are freshly stirred;
last week, news outlets around the world
showed the blanket-shrouded body of
Uwe-Wilhelm Rakebrandlying in the
road beside the driver's door of his
battered rental car.
