Storm leaves 10 dead, many stranded

The Associated Press
Members of the National Guards
flew over rural areas of the Northeast
on Sunday looking for families isolated
without power or food since last week's
ice storm, and temperatures threatened
to drop below zero during the night.
Hundreds of thousands of homes and
businesses still had no electricity across
northern sections of New York,
Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
"I'm a little worried that we're mov-
ing into the time when people are start-
ing to lose patience," said Maine Gov.
Angus King. "Even though it's sunny
now, it isn't over."
"Tonight is the night that we've real-
ly to look after one another," King said.
New Hampshire alone had more than
500 utility line crews from as far away as
Delaware busy cutting through downed
trees to get at broken utility poles and
drooping lines. They were helped by

* members of the National Guards.
"In one area, in order to connect just
two customers, we had to restore about
two miles of wires and several poles,"
said Martin Murray, spokesperson for
Public Service Co. of New Hampshire.
"It's very time-consuming and tedious."
Last week's huge storm caused floods
across the South and spread thick, cling-
ing ice across the Northeast and the east-
ern third Canada. Eleven deaths were
blamed on the storm in Canada, plus two
in Maine and one in New York. Seven
deaths were counted in Tennessee flood-
ing, plus two in North Carolina and one
in South Carolina.
Guard helicopters were sent flying
across a 7,000-square-mile area of
northern New York to search for people
isolated and in their fourth day without
By midday, the helicopter crews had
rescued 16 people.

National Guard members work to clean storm debris in front of the local American
Red Cross offices in Watertown, NY yesterday.

"I tried to grieve as quickly as possi-
ble last year," Waxtan said. "Now ... it
really comes back to me strongly."
Waxtan said those who knew
Sharangpani will not forget her.
"It will stick with me," Waxtan said.
"I'm sure those who had special rela-
tionships with Artie think of it now and
Diganta Saha, a friend of
Sharangpani, said the death changed
how he behaves toward friends when
saying good-bye.
"Especially when you see your
friends and won't see them for awhile,
you wish them a safe journey," said
Saha, a '97 University graduate. "I do
that all the time now.
Waxtan said Sharangpani's sudden
death affected her in a similar way.
"Before I went away on vacation, I
saw all the people I see every day, and
I made sure I wished them well,"
Waxtan said. "If there's a compliment I
want to give someone, I make sure I tell
them right that minute.
"There's never a better time to share
feelings with someone."
Residents of the nearby town of
Grape, not more than 200 yards from the
sight of the plane crash, still listen to
planes pass overhead each day.
"We're right over the airport traffic
way - you always worry something
will happen especially when they come
in so low;" Heiser said. The planes
"come over us all the time. You can
hear them come over."
Heiser said no one in the area has
moved because of the air traffic.
"We wouldn't give up our homestead
for that," Helser said.
Don Biccum, also a Grape resident,
said the air traffic is not a concern.
"I think the planes are safe for the
number of miles they fly,' Biccum said.
"The accident rate is pretty low."

Clinton aims to cut drug use in prisons
WASHINGTON - In an effort to break the link between drugs and crine,
President Clinton plans today to order the states to assess the prevalence of drug
use in their prisons and chart their success at reducing it, according to a senior
White House official and a draft of the presidential directive.
Last year, as a condition of federal prison grants, Clinton and Congress gave t
states until March to spell out their plans for combating drug use behind bars.
Taking that a step further, the directive the president is expected to sign today
would require the plans to include a study of the current level of drug use in pris-
ons and annual progress reports so that the public -- and the federal government
- can judge how well the states are doing.
The evidence is conclusive that criminals continue abusing drugs and alcohol
while in prison and, once released, "go back out and commit crimes to feed their
habits," said Rahm Emanuel, a top Clinton domestic policy adviser.
The president's goal, Emanuel added, is to "rip the habit out of then" while they
are in prison through a combination of mandatory drug testing and treatment.
"Convicted offenders who undergo drug testing and treatment while incarcer'
ed and after release are approximately twice as likely to stay drug- and crime-free
as those offenders who do not receive drug treatment" Clinton said in a draft mem-
orandum to Attorney General Janet Reno.
