television This rate cut 7 percent covers the most popular services and equipment Regulators say thatll affect the vast majority of the nations 57 million cable sub scribers But figuring out just how the reduction might affect you is diffi cult since people pick from a vari ety of services offered by the nations cable systems Here are some commonly asked questions and some answers that may help Q

effect after midMay when the new regula tions are expected to take effect Cities cleared by the FCC to regu late must first systems basic rate for programming and equipment to determine whether the 7 percent cut is warranted For rates beyond basic a con sumer or local government must file a complaint to the FCC The FCC will conduct a review to determine whether should be further reduced Q When will I see a change in my bill A Because the new rates are effective in midMay you wont see a lower bill until June Q Whats covered by the rate cut A cable channels except for payperview and premium services like HBO and Showtime and some equipment like special remotes for digital radio services and modems for information ser vices delivered by your cable sys tem Q Will my local government automatically oversee cable rate regulation A No Local governments must become certified with the FCC Cities can obtain the appropriate forms by calling the FCC at 202 4160940 Q If my local government doesnt chose to regulate what happens A Basic cable rates will not be regulated Inside Local What ever happened to the civil rights lawsuit filed by prisoners in the Howard County Criminal Justice Cen

double agents are fin gered milliondollar payoffs are made and FBI agents skulk through a suspects household trash to find clues And thats just the opening chapter in one of the biggest espi onage cases in CIA history The Justice Department oh Tuesday charged Aldrich Hazen Ames and his wife Rosario with conspiracy to commit espionage Ames a 31year CIA veteran and former senior Soviet counterintel ligence officer is accused of sell ing national security secrets to Moscow for eight years starting in 1985 A federal magistrate ordered the Ameses held without bail until a hearing on Friday If convicted on the conspiracy charge they could face life in prison Neither of them spoke to reporters when they left the magistrates office President Clinton called the case a very serious breach of national security Sources familiar with Ames CIA career said he compromised more than one Soviet double agent including a KGB counterin telligence investigations officer code named GTPROLOGUE who was feeding information to the CIA Ames had access to vast amounts of classified information at the CIA And because during at least part of his long CIA career he specialized in recruiting Soviet officials and intelligence officers as spies he would have been able to disclose to the Soviets the iden tities of CIA agents inside the Soviet Union The Justice Department wrote in an affidavit released Tuesday that Ames 52 began spying for the Soviets in 1985 at a time when he was the chief of the Soviet Coun terintelligence Branch in the CIAs SovietEast European Divisipn He is

real Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding staged a ministaredown this morning at their final practice session Kerrigan and Harding who will skate in the Olympic technical program tonight looked at each other for several seconds late in the session Earlier in the practice Harding nodded at Kerrigan as she skated past her Kerrigan didnt acknowledge it Harding came onto the ice first giving a thumbs up sign to the crowd of perhaps Kerrigan did n t appear for another five minutes and when Hard ing skated by her she nodded at her teammate It was the first such gesture on the ice by either skater since Harding arrived in Norway a week ago At the end of the workout they were about 15 feet apart when they exchanged glances Kerrigan left moments later waving to fans Hard ing gave another thumbsup when she left the ice Kerrigan didnt want to bump into Harding tonight In fact she hoped that by the time she arrived at the figure skating arena Harding would be gone from the premises and out of the
