Arnold
now faces
budget
challenges
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Seething
over taxes and red ink, voters
dumped the unpopular Gov. Gray
Davis and replaced him with politi-
cal novice Arnold Schwarzenegger,
the Hollywood action star who now
faces the colossal challenge he
asked for: jump-starting California's
flagging economy.
Davis, the Democrat who presided
over California's economy as it
careened from boom to bust, was
recalled Tuesday less than a year into
his second term. According to partial
returns, more than 55 percent of voters
called for his ouster.
Schwarzenegger, a moderate Repub-
lican with tons of charisma but virtual-
ly no political experience, was easily
elected among candidates to replace
Davis just two months after shocking
even his closest aides when he declared
his candidacy on "The Tonight Show
With Jay Leno."
The action hero may find that the
hardest part is yet to come. He will
need to quickly assemble an adminis-
tration and work with a Democrat-con-
trolled Legislature to close a projected
$8 billion shortfall for next fiscal year.
Schwarzenegger scheduled an after-
noon press conference yesterday to dis-
cuss the transition.
Israelis
increase
troops for
security
JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel dis-
patched troop reinforcements and
weighed a call-up of reserves yester-
day, citing new warnings about planned
attacks by Palestinian militants.
The military also extended a two-
week lockdown on Palestinians' travel
within the West Bank and Gaza in
what it said was a bid to prevent fur-
ther attacks.
Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz
ordered the troop reinforcements sent
to the West Bank and Gaza Strip and
canceled training courses for soldiers.
Israeli military sources said orders
for mobilizing reserve soldiers were
being drawn up because of an increase
of terror threats. The closure is to
remain in effect at least until Oct. 22nd,
and the government will then decide
whether to call up reserves, media
reports said.
What do Howard Dean,
Democratic Presidential
hopeful, and embattled
California Governor Gray
Davis have in common?

NEWS IN BRIEF
PHILADELPHIA:
Listening devices found in mayor's office
Federal law enforcement officials yesterday confirmed that listening devices
found in the offices of Mayor John Street were planted by the FBI - a discovery
that touched off a political furor just weeks before Election Day.
Three federal law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity,
acknowledged that the FBI was responsible for the bug, but refused to comment
on whether the Democratic mayor is a target of an investigation or to provide any
details about the nature of the probe.
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Democrat, and Sen. Arlen Specter, a Republi-
can, were among several politicians who called on the FBI yesterday to tell the
public what it knows about the eavesdropping equipment, found Tuesday.
"I think given this extraordinary situation with four weeks to go in the
campaign, it is incumbent upon the FBI to say why they planted the device,"
Rendell said.
The bug was found during a routine sweep of Street's office by police.
Street is locked in a bitter rematch against Republican businessman Sam
Katz, and the campaign has been marked by charges of threats and race-
baiting. Election Day is Nov. 4.
WASHINGTON
Supreme Court reviews work place rights
The Supreme Court yesterday wrestled with the workplace rights of recovering
drug addicts and alcoholics in a case with implications for thousands of employers
and more than 5 million workers with substance abuse problems.
The justices are considering whether an Arizona missile plant worker who lost
his job after testing positive for drugs deserved to be rehired after getting sober.
In one of the most closely watched business cases of the term that began this
week, the case of Joel Hernandez requires the court to clarify protections for
workers under the landmark Americans With Disabilities Act.
The law specifically protects people who are clean after being treated for their
addiction, but allows companies to discipline those who use substances on the job.
At issue is Hughes Missile Systems' treatment of the 25-year employee,
who was tested for drugs when he came to work one day in 1991 and reeked
of alcohol. Hernandez quit when the test showed he had used cocaine. More
than two years later, after completing drug and alcohol treatment, he was
rebuffed when he tried to get rehired. The company had an unwritten policy
against rehiring workers who broke rules.

WASHINGTON
NASA tests method
to repair heat shield
Repairing the space shuttle heat
shield in orbit may be simpler than
NASA once thought, requiring one of
the most basic of home repair items -
a foam paint brush.
NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe
said that engineers studying ways for
spacewalking astronauts to fix a hole in
the panels that protect the space shuttle
from re-entry heat have found that an
ordinary foam paintbrush could be used
to spread a special compound while the
craft is in orbit.
Designing and testing such a repair
kit is a key part of NASA's efforts to
return the space shuttle to orbit in the
wake of the Feb. 1 accident that
destroyed Columbia and killed seven
astronauts. The Columbia Accident
Investigation Board determined that the
shuttle was destroyed when superheated
air entered a hole in the heat shield on
the leading edge of the left wing and
melted internal aluminum supports.
WASHINGTON
Foreign language
use increasing
Nearly one in five Americans speaks
a language other than English at home,
the Census Bureau says, after a surge of
nearly 50 percent during the past
decade. Most speak Spanish, followed
by Chinese, with Russian rising fast.

Some 47 million Americans five
years and older used a language other
than English in 2000, the bureau
said. That translates into the nearly
one in five, compared with roughly
one in seven 10 years earlier.
There also were more people consid-
ered "linguistically isolated" because of
limited English, a situation that some
analysts say can prevent people from
assimilating fully into American society
and hinder activities like grocery shop-
ping or communicating with police or
fire officials.
WASH INGTON
Silicone-gel breast
implants may return
Eleven years after most use of sili-
cone-gel breast implants was banned
amid fears they were dangerous, the
Food and Drug Administration is
considering letting them back on the
U.S. market.
Revisiting the emotionally charged
issue, the FDA next week will hear tes-
timony essentially pitting woman
against woman - some who say the
implants broke apart to leave lasting
scars, others who want implants they
say feel more natural to reconstruct
breasts savaged by cancer.
Inamed Corp. of Santa Barbara,
Calif., reopened the controversy by ask-
ing the FDA for permission to sell its
version of the implants in America.

Yung Krall, daughter of the
National Liberation Front's
(Viet Cong's) ambassador
to Moscow, states that at
one time North Vietnam was
within four days of surrender.
However, the protest
movement forced a halt to
our bombing and the war
dragged on. Did the
protestors save or cost
lives?
