Though unclaimed prize Money accumulates from week to week Indiana wont be Able to offer the kind of payoffs that have produced ticket frenzy elsewhere.

A saved by letters to the editor violence to increase fast sir expect violence to increase in South Africa. Despite Calls for negotiations and significant government reforms aimed toward abolishing apartheid Many South african Blacks Are determined to intensify the wave of violence already sweeping the country. Ironically the violence is not aimed at the White minority government but instead at other Black individuals and organizations. Black against Black violence has reached an All time High in South Africa with no apparent end in sight. Nelson Mandela a plea for peace in Natal for example fell upon deaf ears because or. Mandela himself refuses to give up a the armed struggle. If Black South african leaders condone the use of violence As a Means by which to secure National Power How can they not expect their followers to use the same methods to establish regional or tribal dominance if peace is to finally come to South Africa it will be necessary for Black South african leaders to renounce All acts of violence and political intimidation. Unfortunately this is something they Are not yet willing or Able to do. Sincerely Dan Dwyer 25 Sorin Hall notre Dame in 46556morals being taken away sir i am writing about a store that has just been put in maybe a month ago Here in Greensburg. Its called Karma records and it seems like a harmless record store. I walked into the store and was shocked there were cassette tapes with what looked like the Devil himself on it and naked people on the records a picture of a Man taking drugs on the cover of a record a Smiley face picture with blood coming out of its forehead like it had been stabbed this sort of so called a a expression is unnecessary its demeaning immoral and Down right disgusting. Sure you May say Freedom of express son Freedom of speech but what about us christians these displays can be put in stores and its Fine but across the United states Christian morals Are being taken away what is wrong with this country better yet what is wrong with the people in this country i Challenge everyone who is against this sort of act to write to your government. If enough of us join together we May get something done Here in our own town Darla Greer Greensburg Beach ready for tourists sir thanks to your support and to our rapid Broad based renewal Effort Myrtle Beach the Hub of South Carolina s grand stand resort is better than Ever after Hurricane More than 50,000 room 10,000 campsites and 1,200 restaurants Are ready for the 1990 tourist season. Woman writes death threat to . Secretary of Commerce Washington a there is no question that the president of the United states needs to be protected by secret service agents. Death threats come with the territory. But who would want to kill the Secretary of agriculture or Interior we recently speculated in this column that Cabinet members surround themselves with a muscle bound entourage because they like the trappings of Nouveau Royalty. Commerce Secretary Robert mos Bacher has since Learned that those trappings can come in Handy. A woman has been in a Washington d.c., jail for a month awaiting trial on charges that she threatened Mosbacher s life. Nancy Crawford allegedly wrote Mosbacher a letter saying a there is your Choice marry me or die. Ill kill you before you Hurt me Mosbacher refused to answer our questions about the woman. An Fri agent who questioned her said that she spoke about her relationship with Mosbacher and blames him for some personal problems. A she stated that Secretary Mosbacher was destined to be her Mentor and in a mystical sense the father of two children she has seen in her dreams and has always hoped for a the Fri agent s affidavit said. Crawford moved to Washington from Brooklyn n.y., earlier this year. Jack Anderson syndicated columnist she is now undergoing a psychiatric evaluation to determine if she is competent to stand trial. Crawford refused to Tell us whether she had actually met Mosbacher. A to not a threat to anyone a she said adding that she had tried for a year to get an appointment with Mosbacher. A i am in fact in jail because i wrote a letter to Robert then she added a a it a quite possible i should be married to Robert Mosbacher a but she said he was the a last person she would want to marry. A a he a a miserable its not Likely that Mosbacher would be killed for his stand on japanese Trade issues or Eastern bloc technology Transfer. But a political beef is not the Only motive for murder. President Reagan was shot by someone who cared More about Jodie Foster than reaganomics. The flamboyant Mosbacher is a More Likely target for threats from the lovelorn than the politically disillusioned. The handsome Silver haired millionaire and his stunning wife Georgette were hailed As a needed addition to the flagging Washington party circuit when president Bush appointed Mosbacher to the Commerce Post. Many top government officials Don t think their jobs Are controversial enough to warrant tight Security. Our associate Scott sleek polled the Cabinet and found that a few members have no Protection at All. Even those with Security like to keep it at a minimum. Interior Secretary Manuel Lujan Learned to press the flesh As a congressman from new Mexico and he has an aversion to Security As a Cabinet Secretary. But . Park police guard him when he travels. Once in California he waded into a crowd of angry environmentalists protesting offshore drilling. Security people there advised him to leave. Agriculture Secretary Clayton Yeut ter is no stranger to threats even though the nature of his work would tend to put him in touch with Only Salt of the Earth types. He and former agriculture secretaries have been threatened by eco terrorists displaced Farmers and even an occasional animal rights activist vegetarian. Sceptics debated whether a nine month refurbishing Effort could restore enough front porches and Golf courses to satisfy our usual 400,00$ weekly vacationers. Any Doubter need now Only play a round of Golf oar any one of our 68 courses or sip a Julep on any one of several thousand Ocean front balconies to see thai Myrtle Beach is not Only Back it 5 better than Ever.
