The City Council enacted a "pooperscooper"ordinance tftat includes fines of up to $50 for pet owners whose dogdroppings end up anywhere but their ownlawiis. Clitics ridiculed the measure as unen-forceable, and city staffers acknowl- edged that it could take days to investi*gate complaints. But Craig McDahiel, who drafted theordinance, said it's time for Dallas to join other cities that protect residentsfrom foul Substances. He conceded that the law won't be vigbrously enforced.

The vote was 791- 76. White explorers came up with GayHead, presumably because of the ly colored cliffs overlooking Sound. The town on Martha's Vineyardwas incorporated in 1870. It is now home to AquinnaJh Wampan-oag, an Indian tribe that gamed federal recognition, hi 1987. Selectman DaMdVanderhoop said a£out half the resi- dents are members of the tribe, which led the. push for the name change. 1 - ° Flap about bird feeder forces owner to court NEW ROCHELLE —You've heard of the Bird- man of Alcatraz?
