News Around The World Guerrillas kidnap 16 in Colombia BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Guerrillas pretending to be police stormed a luxury apartment building in a southern Colombian city and kidnapped 16 people, including the wife and two sons of a senator. Eleven residents of the building in the city of Neiva apparently remained captive Friday as troops backed by police and air force planes pursued the kidnappers, reportedly headed toward a rebel-controlled territory. Bush offers HMO suit compromise WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush on Friday offered his rivals on patients’ rights legislation a way to move most lawsuits against HMOs into state courts. Negotiators planned to spend the weekend pondering how the plan could work. Bush, who had intensified his Capitol Hill lobbying after losing party moderates’ support on a more-limited bill, presented the state plan to Rep. Charlie Norwood, R-Ga., the chief bargainer for Bush’s rivals. The Bush compromise would essentially steer HMO cases to federal courts, but allow some suits to be heard in state courts — particularly if they apply to the local medical malpractice laws, sources said. Some Democrats were still unhappy with the offer. Among the complaints is that the White House wants to create a “super-shield” for employers who provide employee health plans. Under Bush’s proposal, according to sources familiar with it, employers would be liable only for federal laws governing contract disputes — even if they instructed or pressured a health plan into making a medical decision to deny a patient a needed test, medicine or operation.

Detour signs will be placed along Business 35 directing traffic to FM 725. A large detour sign also will be placed south of FM 306 notifying I-35 traffic that the ramp has been closed and which ramps to use instead of Exit 187. Also, a large flashing sign will be placed just south of Texas 46 telling I-35 traffic to use Exit 188 to get to downtown New Braunfels. The ramp closure will expedite the construction of FM 725 near I-35. • Northbound entrance ramp to Interstate 35 from FM 725 — The northbound frontage road from Chevron north to FM 725 also will be moved over to the newly constructed frontage road. This traffic switch will require the closure of the northbound entrance ramp to I-35 from FM 725. The northbound frontage road traffic still will be allowed to enter the ramp by taking the left turn off the frontage road. The northbound frontage road bridge over the Guadalupe River is scheduled to open in about one month, and FM 725 traffic will be able to use it to access northbound I-35. • FM 725 Underpass — Expected to be reopened to full width in August. • Interstate 35 northbound and southbound frontage roads — work continuing from Ruekle Road to Executive Drive. • North side turnaround — This turnaround will remain open throughout construction but will require various detours. Northbound Interstate 35 frontage road bridge over the Guadalupe River — will be opened to one lane of traffic today. • The Solms Road Interstate 35 overpass — will be closed from August 2 through December 2 while workers raise and widen it. Traffic should detour to the Ruekle Road overpass or the Schwab Road underpass.
