I banners two dds is seeking the lawsuit, NT SfHtl POM) YORK rn winning, for Boorga NEW YORK (AP) — Claudia Schiffer sUbck a winning pose for George magazine. She also made a few trips tothe loser’s circle. The political magazine wrapped up the presidential race in its January issue by offering readers a choice of two covers. The first — a black-and-white shot — shows Ms. Schiffer as t tearful Bob Dole supporter, primly covered in a black turtleneck. The second — in color— shows the cover girl as a sultry booster for President Clinton, bare!/ wearing a strategically placed “Clnton-Gore” sash. George’s executive editor, Elizabeth Mitchell, vasn’t saying which one she thou/ht would sell better.    / “Already in our office, there are very diverse opinions — just along partisan lines,” she said. “Nothing to do with the nudity.” This election is actually fixed. The magazine, founded and run by John F. Kennedy Jr., set its press run so that 75 percent of copies feature the risque Clinton cover and 25 percent the dour Dole look. Quakes and fans Iaava Elvis’ star all shook up LOS ANGELES (AP) — The King’s star had seen better days. Battered by earthquakes, weather and souvenir-hungry tourists, Elvis’ marker on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was in need of repair. Nearly 37 years after it was installed, the Hollywood Historic Trust refurbished the star’s star on Friday. Elvis’ daughter, Lisa Marie, sent a letter of gratitude for shining up the star that sits in front of the Stella Adler Theater. "I know he would be deeply appreciative,” Ms. Presley wrote. Elvis’ star was installed Feb. 9, 1960. Simon says: Thoro’s no oxact way lo roach success TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Neil Simon says there’s no formula for success. “I’ve had my failures too. You do your best,” said the writer of 28 plays and 24 screenplays, including “The Odd Couple” and “Biloxi Blues.” “You have to feel strongly enough about the idea ... but sometimes you’re deceived,” he said. Simon became the first playwright Friday night to receive the Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award, the Tulsa Library Trust’s $20,000 award for nationally acclaimed authors. Candidates’ runoff to be monitored by federal government HOUSTON (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department is sending poll watchers to Southeast Texas to monitor Tuesday’s 9th Congressional District runoff following accusations of voter fraud and intimidation. The department will post four attorneys and 24 other federal observers for the runoff between incumbent U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman and Democrat Nick Lampson. Observers will also set up a toll-free hot line to take any complaints of voter intimidation or voting irregularities. Federal agents had stopped a get-out-the-vote drive that involved chances to win free turkeys or hams in exchange for votes. “They will consult with local observers and stay in touch with the candidates and talk to the local sheriffs,” said Keith Ellison, an attorney working with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “I’ve called around — people in Washington, federal observers — and nobody has any recollection of this happening before in Texas.” Attorney General Janet Reno has agreed with Democrats’ request for an inquiry, said Gerald Hebert, an attorney for the congressional committee. The request was on behalf of Lampson, a former Jefferson County tax assessor. Stockman, R-Friendswood, gained notoriety first for beating longtime Democratic Rep. Jack Brooks and then becoming a lightning rod for anti-militia sentiment. The 9th District is one of three in the state with runoffs after a ruling that three districts were unconstitutionally drawn based on race. Observers will arrive in the 9th District Sunday and remain until Wednesday or Thursday, said Democratic Party officials. The district includes Chambers, Galveston and Jefferson counties and parts of Harris County. The first of three allegations in the district was that Stockman poll watchers had intimidated early voters — particularly African-American voters — a charge that Stockman campaign officials deny. Also, the Texas Voter Project allegedly intimidated voters by sending out letters that warn against committing voter fraud and which give incorrect information about what constitutes voter fraud. An address listed in the mailout corresponds to a north Harris County post office box. An anonymous group was also accused of illegally enticing voters to support Stockman by promising free hot dogs and a chance to win a turkey. High court’s decision on Internet speech will get close scrutiny By RICHARD CARELLI Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON — The contours of free speech in the 21st century — and children’s access to smut — could be shaped next year as the Supreme Court decides the government’s power to regulate indecency on the Internet. The nation’s highest court will review a ruling that has blocked enforcement of the Communications Decency Act, Congress’ first attempt to regulate the freewheeling global computer network. A three-judge federal court in Philadelphia ruled earlier this year that the law would deny adults their rightful access to sexual material that may be inappropriate for children. The law also was struck down by a three-judge panel in New York. “This is a really important case ... that decides freedom to speak and freedom to read for the next century,” said Danny Weitzner of the Washington-based Center for Democracy and Technology. “Unquestionably, we need Supreme Court guidance on these issues,” he said. “We have to win it. Just winning in Philadelphia isn't winning. It’s not enough until the Supreme Court speaks.” Marc Rotenberg of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, another advocacy group in Washington, agreed. “This is the most important First Amendment case to go to the Supreme Court in 30 years,” he said. Stefan Presser of the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania said his organization would have been happier if the justices had simply upheld the three-judge court’s ruling. But, he added, “I think there’s almost no question that the court will rule in our favor.” But Sens. James Exon, D-Neb., and Dan Coats, R-Ind., who cosponsored the legislation, said they hoped the high court will reinstate the law. “The Decency Act was written to shield children from pornography without infringing on the First Amendment rights of adults,” Exon said. “I am hopeful that the Supreme Court, relying on its own previous rulings in this area, will agree that the Decency Act is consistent with the Constitution.” Coats said: “This bill was passed overwhelmingly with the strong support of Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and liberals. It is my strong hope that the court will underscore the strengths of the bill in its ruling.” NBISD to auction properties with overdue taxes A tax sale of Nbw Braunfels area properties will be Md on the steps of the Comal CounV Courthouse at 11 a.m. Tuesday. These properties are being auctioned for the non-payment of property taxes. The properties were offered at prior sheriffs sales but did not sell primarily because the taxes, penalties I and interest <$ved exceeded tho value of the properties. The properties are now owned in trusJ by the New Braunfels Indepefdent School District on behalf ofitself and other taxing entities within Comal County. The properties are being offered at roughly 50 percentiof the minimum bid established at p^or sheriffs sales. “It is the desire of all taxing entities to sell ttyse properties and get them back ov the tax roll in the hands of a taxpayer who will remain current in the pqnnent of taxes,” said Carleton Doncp, tax collector for NBISD. “Properties held in trust by NBISD do not/bring any revenue to the taxing entiles in Comal County.” The law firfn of Heard, Goggan, Blair & William initiates the efforts to collect delinquent property taxes for the city of New Braunfels and the NBISD. HGB&W has been conducting an aggressive but fair delinquent tax collection program in New Braunfels since 1987. The result of the firm’s efforts has been a higher percentage of taxpayers paying their taxes on time to avoid the costs and penalties associated with delinquent taxes.
