Malibu residents return to ashes

MALIBU, Calif. (AP)- Alice
Kavaldgian cried as she trudged
through the ashes of her home. "This
is it," she said, pointing to the clothes
she was wearing. "I don't even have a
sweater."
Kavaldgian was among thousands
of residents chased from this celeb-
rity enclave by an arson~ wildfire that
roared out of the Santa Monica Moun-
tains on Tuesday and burned 200
houses. One person was killed.
Some returned yesterday to see
whether any of their past was still
standing. Others waited at roadblocks
hastily put up to allow fire or aircraft
bombing runs over the remaining hot
spots.
By yesterday afternoon,
firefighters had contained 70 percent

of the 1,500-acre wildfire, one of a
series of blazes that have destroyed
1,000 homes, blackened 200,000 acres
and injured nearly 200 people in
Southern California since Oct. 26.
Several were blamed on arsonists.
The Malibu fire claimed actor Sean
Penn's $4 million Spanish-style man-
sion along with Ali McGraw's home..
with its panoramic view of the Pacific
Ocean.
"I'm grateful to be alive. I'm grate-
ful to my friends who helped save my
animals. And I'm grateful to all the
firefighters for their extraordinary
efforts in saving so many people's
lives," the star of the 1970 hit movie
"Love Story" said in a statement re-
leased through her publicist.

With cool sea breezes mixing with
wind gusts in the hills, crews and
firefighting aircraft focused yester-
day on the hot spots around Fernwood
in Topanga Canyon.
Forecasters weren't expecting a
return of the hot, dry Santa Ana winds
front the ;deserts northeast of Los
Angeles that fanned the worst of the
fires.
Mike Pierson returned to his wood-
sided house to find it intact. His relief
was subdued.
"My cousin's home is gone, my
best friend's home is gone. Every
person I grew up with, their home is
gone," Pierson said. "I look here and
I can't even tell where people live"

LANSING (AP) -- "Unreason-
able" safety criteria make it impos-
sible to build a low-level radioac-
tive waste disposal facility anywhere
in Michigan, an independent expert
said yesterday.
As a result, Michigan will not
build such a facility in the foresee-
able future, state officials said.
But that doesn't mean such a site
couldn't be constructed safely in
Michigan, said Robert Laughon, re-
search leader for Battelle Energy
Systems Group of Ohio. The com-
pany conducted the study for the
Michigan Low-Level Radioactive
Waste Authority.
"You can't put this just any-
where, but there are plenty of places
in the state, and any state, to put it
adequately," Laughon said at a news
conference to unveil the Battelle
findings.
But he said a state law which
limits where a disposal facility is
placed effectively makes it impos-
sible to construct.
"I think they're very restrictive,"~
he said of the criteria used in the
law. "They are unnecessarily restric-
tive. I think they are a little unrea-
sonable."
NAFTA
Continued from page :1
"I want you to understand this
very clearly from somebody who's
lived through this: This agreement
will make that less likely, not more
likely," Clinton said.
Clinton flew to Kentucky to ap-
pear at a Lexmark plant that makes
computer equipment that is subject to
a 20 percent tariff in Mexico. The
trade agreement would eliminate the
tariff.
With the House set to vote Nov.
17, the White House acknowledged it
still lacks enough support but said
things were picking up as a result of
new deals with Mexico to protect
politically sensitive American indus-
tries.
NAFTA supporters estimated that

"No place in the state will meet
all the criteria," Laughon said. "The
wetlands criterion alone eliminates
the 79 remaining areas" under a
state search which had narrowed the
possible sites.
The latest report follows years
of site searches, worry by local resi-@
dents, anger of a regional waste
group and continued storage of low-
level waste at 53 temporary sites
across Michigan.
Michigan was kicked out of a
seven-state Midwest group in July
1991 for its delay in developing a
dump site. Now it must handle its
own waste or find another state to
accept it.
Dennis Schornack, acting com-
missioner of the low-level authority
and a top aide to Gov. John Engler,
said he doubts the state law will be
changed to make it easier to con-
struct a disposal site.
"I doubt there are the votes across
the street (in the Legislature) to
change that," he said, adding that
the Engler administration is not pro-
posing such changes.
Schornack said Michigan will
try to find another state to take
Michigan's waste for disposal.
an agreement with Mexico on sugar
would bring Clinton 10 to 12 votes.
Rep. Terry Everett (R-Ala.) said
there are 53 solid Republican votes
against NAFTA in the House. Ap-*
pearing at a news conference with
Perot, Everett and other NAFTA op-
ponents said there are 213 House
members against the agreement.
Some analysts believe the Repub-
lican sweep in yesterday's elections
in New York, New Jersey and Vir-
ginia will make fence-sitting Demo-
crats even more nervous about cast-
ing risky votes.
"That's ludicrous, that's just a
Washington story," Clinton said.
"That's ridiculous."
The White House sent Clinton's
own pollster, Stanley Greenberg, to
Capitol Hill to reassure Democrats
that they won't be ousted by voters
for supporting the trade agreement.
