White advertising manager Tim Johnson accountant William Brafford press room Foreman no More or bad Guy the image of the Yelling taunting Drill instructor May no longer be appropriate when thinking of the . Marine corps. Drill instructors will no longer browbeat intimidate or harass their Young recruits. The mental approach to Basic training in the marines has been that the senior i was a Good Guy an almost fatherly figure while the Junior Dis were the bad Guys a hard mean unsympathetic and unapproachable disciplinarians. The Marine corps has made an about face in its approach to Basic training As a result of a study of suicides committed by three recruits. With the change Drill instructors will be just that a an instructor rather than somewhat of a combination of King Kong Godzilla the wolfman and Jason from a Friday the 13th.�?� based on what we have read of the changes Basic training will not be reduced to a regimen of crumpets and Tea. Apparently the marines Are still going to be looking for a few Good men and women. And the Marine Dis Arentt going to be saying things like May i please and thank you. However the image of the Dis perpetuated in films like a full Metal jacket and others is on the Way out. In fact they May be almost human.

What possible Chance do we stand if Mickey wants the child to buy a hamburger we guess we just might As Well get prepared for the big Mick attack. Sad state of affairs armed guards at a supermarket meat counter its a sad state of affairs when police officers have to stake out the local grocery store but that a exactly what a happened in Whitesburg. The Superior supermarket was one of three supermarkets in the Eastern Kentucky town to place guards carrying .357-mag-Nums in meat sections. The extreme measure was taken Afler threats that meat at a City grocery store had been poisoned with cyanide. The threats have angered and frightened residents in the Letcher county town of 1,200, but no poisonings have been reported. The three supermarkets were forced to destroy $36,000 Worth of meat and Post Sig a that All the meat had been Cut since tuesday. The threats were called in monday. We have to wonder what kind of person would do such a thing. Is it a sick attempt to get attention or a Power play from a warped mind calculated to intimidate the City a residents perhaps Well know after tests on meat Are completed and police find the caller. But we do know one thing now. Its a sad statement on the human condition when your local grocer has to bring in pistol toting policemen to insure its customers safety.

I done to know where the time goes. A lot of times during the week i find myself planning what in a going to do on the weekend when it finally arrives and All the things in a going to accomplish. That a a laugh. I usually discover after the weekends come to a close. I did no to get much done at All. For one thing. I just can to seem to catch up on keeping my apartment clean.

I usually find myself spending most of my time to Yang to catch up on lost sleep from the Busy work week i be had. Or i spend my time eating ironing running to the store or washing dishes. Hey it takes a Long time to do dishes by hand. Its dreadful when you done to have a dishwasher to do the work for you.

Yet stubborn prosecutors unwilling to admit error have persisted in pursuing a Case that never should have been tried at All. This week nes Nightmare May near an end. The 4th District court of peals will hear Arment in West Palm Beach on his Appeal Given the Clear and ugly record of the states indefensible prosecution it would be ing if the appellate court did not dismiss the Case out of hand. The Story goes Back to the night o june 17, 1986. Todd was 18 at the time. With his Mother his sister Bethellen and his Stepfather to be. Lew Crosley he went to dinner at the lobster shanty in Jensen Beach. A waitress took the party s cider at 8 26. The Check was paid by credit card at 9 31. The times Are fixed absolutely by records of the restaurant eleven Miles away at a town House Complex in port Salerno 24-year-old Linda 2�avatkay said goodnight to her Boyfriend at 9 of clock.

They struggled Briety. The attacker fled. At 9 12 she called 911 to report tie assault Dlce rec Maxis confirm the time. The 911 tape Speaks volumes. Zavatkay identified her assailant that night As a boy who was �?o16. Max Quot she provided a telling clue the youth had braces it i his Teeth. Her Roy filed said he had seen a a shaded of a person Rar the front door As he departed. Later it would transpire that police made a can James Kilpatrick synd Tatad Coturri la Vass of the neighbourhood asking about teen agers who met be suspects. They Learned that 18-year-old Todd Neely who lived with his family about 50 Yards away from the Zavatkay Home had a rec xxx of drunk driving. He was a smart Alec Ltd Type. A few Days later police showed the victim a Schod yearbook photograph of Neely taken three years earlier. After some persuasion Zavatkay thought she met have been mistaken about the braces. She made positive the Boyfriend a so Shadow Quot remark Abb sharpened. Police arrested Neely and charged him with attempted murder.

William rusher syndic sed Woumnm weekends Are usually too Short sworn testimony that he once threatened a girl at knife Point with rape. All this came out in a hearing before judge file a year ago. Something else came out it transpired tit the states assistant prosecuting attorney As fisc ruled had a deliberately and actually suppressed vital information Quot that would have led to need s acquittal. The detectives canvass sheets would have pointed unerring to Young Raether. Judge fryers conclusion Shouki have ended matters. Unwilling to give up the state toe an App. The Story is a wretched St cry of Flimsy identification Bung Fod police work suppressed evidence and overzealous a to sectors. On the in rebutted evidence of the restaurant Check alone. It is impossible to believe in Neely s guilt the trial judge never heard of the suspect Raether. The yearbook Oto and the victims refurbished memory sufficed. Everything is up to the appeals court now. Compromise of . Principles Well Over a year has gone by since James Ber ache his longstanding ambition to become Secretary of state and it is possible to make out now the general outlines of his notion of now the Job ought to be discharged. Unfortunately the prognosis Isnit promising. Uniquely among the worlds major nations the United states has from its inception stood for Freedom. Osiier nations a Britain and France for example a have themselves been free As Long or even longer. But they have been compromised by their involvement in the Power pout is of Europe and the Bill to of colonialism in a Way. And to an extent that the United states was fortunately Able to avoid. As a result this country s identification with principles and especially with the principle of Freedom is recognized throughout the world. As the late president Chang Ching Kuo of the Republic of China Taiwan once said to me a if the United states does no to stand for Freedom what does it stand for Quot it was the inability of such Brilliant machiavellian As Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger to grasp the profound importance of this identification that led them into such blunders As their repellent detente with the elderly thugs Vidio run red China. To Cootain a a China card Quot to play in the a cd War with the soviet Union they gravely sullied this country s reputation for Devotion to the cause of Freedom. Today As the cold War fades we find ourselves still saddled with an embarrassing Quot Friendship Quot with Deng amp co., who have just renewed their credentials As murderers by their performance in la Hannkn Square. Unfortunately there is considerable evidence that our current Secretary of state suffers from a similar moral Rry Opla. In the particular Case of China Baker unless we prefer to put the onus entirely on president Bush twice secretly dispatched his own highest Deputy and the National Security Conda director to peking soon after Tiana men Square to obtain promises of better behaviour that remain glaringly unfulfilled to this Day. And still More recently. In the Case of Lithuania the Baker policy seems far More concerned with keeping Mikhail Gorbachev in Power in the soviet Union than with recognizing and encouraging the Independence of a Small nation whose absorption by the soviet Union for refused to rec Naze even in the midst of world War ii. Where in fact since Baker took the Helm has . Foreign Polky stood unambiguously for Freedom anywhere in the world not in Cambodia where our strongest current allies Are the Khmer Rou. Not in Angola Dwiere Jonas a Vumbi is being subjected to the military Salami tactics of Gorbachev a Well supplied puppets As we stand by and watch. Not in Nicaragua. Where the administration was clearly ready to accept a san Dan Sta Victory and compel the con tras to do likewise. Not even in Panama where a Power Fril internal coup was allowed to sputter out and Only the resulting criticism and Noriega swing insolence finally provoked a . Response. The nations erf Eastern Europe to be sure managed to obtain the Freedom on Baker s watch. But any Nobel prizes handed out Fco that achievement surely Bifong to them and to Gorbachev not to Baker. We must remember that where a pout Idan who be stands for principle As dust la gushed from Merety pretending t is often regarded As just waster his and other Peoples time. To come from such a Bac ground to the intricate Brocad tapestry of International afia May equip a person to play come tent poker with the soviet Forel ministry but it leaves him woeful unprepared to raise the one Sta Dard that the world has Long be taught to regard As americans of Cial concern the Standard Freedom
