Aiken, South Carolina Vol. 122 No. 3 I OI st Congress Now In Session Serious Work Will Wait Until Jan. 20 By STEVEN KOMAROW The Associated Press WASHINGTON - The 101st Congress opens with the nation’s legislature still firmly in Democratic control but with important changes in the leadership that will confront such crucial issues as the federal budget deficit, the environment, health care and ethics. New and re-elected members of the House and Senate were being sworn in today, and then the two chambers were set to carry out organizational chores for two days. Among them: a joint session Wednesday to count the electoral votes for president. Congress will then adjourn until Jan. 20 although hearings could start before then on some of President-elect Bush’s nominations. No bills will be considered until later in the month, but plenty will be talked about as lawmakers await Bush’s legislative proposals. Possibly the most controversial decision members will have to make early in the session is whether to approve a pay raise for themselves. A presidential commission has recommended a 50 percent Bush Sets Strategies...................Page    2A increase, and many lawmakers contend their jobs make it difficult to live on the $89,500 base salary. Pay is always a politically dicey issue, but especially so this year with so much attention being focused on the federal deficit. President Reagan sends his final budget to Congress Jan. 9, and Bush is expected to submit his own ideas after taking office. Before fiscal 1990 begins Oct. I, Congress and the new president must agree on how to cut more than $25 billion in spending, or to raise taxes, in order to meet the goals of the Gramm-Rudman budget balancing law. Awaiting Bush’s proposals before offering their own are House Speaker Jim Wright, D-Texas, and the Senate’s new majority leader, George Mitchell of Maine. Mitchell succeeds Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., who will also play a key fiscal role as he moves over to the chair-manship of the Appropriations Committee. Bush pledged repeatedly during the campaign he would not support any new taxes, but many Democrats are openly skeptical he can keep that promise.

The $81 billion total includes $52 billion to modernize outdated facilities, some of which are more than 30 years old, while $29 billion would go toward efforts to deal with radioactive and chemical contamination at many sites throughout the weapons complex. The long-range plan would involve building new facilities at the Savannah River Plant in South Carolina and in Ida ho as well as phasing out weapons production activities in Washington state, Colorado and Ohio. The Energy Department has refused to release any portions of the classified document, known as the “2010 Report” because it looks ahead as far as the 2010 fiscal year. Gail Bradshaw, deputy chief spokesman for the department, said this week the department could not release the report’s unclassified executive summary until it had received permission to do so from the National Security Council. A copy of the summary was obtained by Morris News Service and made available to The Associated Press. Energy Secretary John S. Herrington said Dec. 22 the next administration faces “hard choices” in dealing with the problems of the nuclear weapons complex.

Sales and profits are expected to be slightly better than 1988 figures, but far less than 1987’s record totals, analysts said. “I think most of the companies, barring some kind of disaster in the economy, should be able to eke out a small gain in profits, but not much — maybe 5 to IO percent,” analyst Grace Tafemer of First Manhattan in New York told The Greenville News. Textile mill sales rose 2 percent to $58.7 billion in 1988, while profits dropped 16 percent to $1.6 billion according to estimates by the American Textile Manufacturers Institute. Analyst Patricia Ryan of Raymond James & Associates of St. Petersburg, Fla., said textile mills will be in good position to benefit from a rebound in retail sales because inventories are relatively low. “I’m not looking for a big spurt in growth, but by cutting inventories and costs in ’88, I think it will help ’89 be a better year,” she said. “I’d look for an improvement in earnings, but of a moderate type.” The results from 1988 show that the relatively small number of publicly held textile companies are performing better than smaller companies, said analyst Elizabeth VanDeventer of Standard & Poor’s in New York. One reason is that apparel fabrics suffered the most in 1988. The business is one of the largest segments of the industry and tends to include many small mills.

FBI Agent William Nettles said 38-year-old Nicholas Dolce, who is wanted for murder and attempted arson in Colorado, fled Sunday from the home after arguing with the woman. Nettles said “be (Dolce) indicated to her he was the person” described on the television show about wanted criminals before leaving in the woman’s car. Nettles said Monday the suspect had not been caught and that authorities were still searching the Charleston area. Nettles said while authorities do not know whether Dolce is armed, an all-points bulletin warned he was to be considered armed and dangerous. Dolce is listed among the FBI's IO most wanted fugitives, he said. The television program, “America’s Most Wanted,” featured a profile of Dolce, who is accused of killing his mother. The agent said the suspect became associated with the woman about three weeks ago, “but has been in town longer than that.” Authorities would not release the identity of the woman. Authorities said Dolce is white with a dark complexion, and has passed himself off as an American Indian or Mexican. He is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 140 pounds; his shoulder-length hair was originally brown, but has been dyed black. Authorities said Dolce is a heavy drug user and often dresses as a woman. A spokesman for the “America’s Most Wanted” show said Dolce is accused of beating his mother to death on May 2, 1986, in Trinidad, Colo., and setting fire to her home. ;
