ZOELLER FliNERAL HOME  Funerals & Cremations  D's&ity  615 Linda, New Braunfels (830) 625-2349  WASHINGTON (AP) — Warren M. Christopher, the attorney turned envoy who tirelessly traveled to Bosnia and the Middle East on peace missions during his 1993-96 tenure as sec- „ . rwaryofstatein  Chm,opher  the Clinton administration, has died at age 85.  Late Friday, Christopher died at his home in Los Angeles of complications from bladder and kidney cancer, said Sonja Steptoe of the law firm O’Melveny & Myers, where Christopher was a senior partner.  When he took over as secre-  tary of state in the Clinton administration at age 68, Christoper said he didn’t expect to travel much. He went on to set a four-year mark for miles traveled by America’s top diplomat, including some two dozen trips to Syria alone in a futile effort to promote a settlement with Israel.  After his work finished carrying out the Clinton administration agenda, the Californian returned home for an active life in local and national affairs and with his law firm.  President Barack Obama said Saturday that he mourned the passing of a man who proved to be a “resolute pursuer of peace.”  FROM THE WIRE  The Associated Press  EGYPTIANS VOTE IN MAJOR TEST OF SHIFT TO DEMOCRACY  CAIRO — Eager for their first taste of a free vote in decades, Egyptians lined up by the hundreds Saturday to vote on constitutional amendments sponsored by the ruling military that critics fear could propel the country's largest Islamist group to become Egypt's most dominant political force.
