miles of the city One of the tanks disappeared late Friday while being escorted by peacekeepers Up to three others were believed to have remained within the exclusion zone despite the threat of air strikes officials said spokesman Cmdr Eric Chaperon indicated there were no plans to ask NATO planes to attack the tanks We have to deal with our means and our best means is he said With the United

wrath of the Muslimled Bosnian government which demanded his resignation In Washington a State Department official said Akashi should do a better It is not clear why the Serbs wanted to move the tanks But Bosnian government radio accused them Saturday of prepar ing a new major offensive south of Sarajevo that could include the redeployed weapons It said Bosnian Serbs also were moving troops and

Commissions decision avoids legal problems EVANSVILLE Ind AP The Indiana Gaming Commission will allow floating casinos on the Ohio River to have gambling while the boats are moored to avoid legal problems with Kentucky The commission initially said customers on all boats on Lake Michigan or the Ohio River would not be able to gamble unless die boats were traveling But Kentucky officials threatened to aggressively enforce that states prohibition on casino gambling Since most of the Ohio River is Kentucky territory the threats were taken seriously Casino oper ators and regulators agreed it would be difficult for boats to avoid churning Kentucky water in some spots on the river especially around Evansville where the bor der can come right to the Indiana bank What this says to the operators is that they can now pursue their plans with confidence because there will be no Jack Thar executive director of the Indiana Gaming Commission said at Fridays commission meet ing Commission Chairman Alan Klineman said the state still intends to negotiate a permanent settlement with Kentucky The proposed rules wont allow for dockside gambling such as that conducted on the Mississippi River Those operations are essen tially landbased casinos con structed atop giant barges perma nently moored to the shore Dockside gambling is more profitable than riverboats because the operations are larger and allow a continuous flow of gam biers Boats on the Ohio River may not be cruising but operators will not be allowed to let patrons on the boat once gambling begins Commissioners said they also plan to require all boats be self propelled and have only tempo rary moorings Tfo Strawterry How To Be Moms Favorite Delight her with beautiful flowers in a special
