Demapan and House Speaker Thomas P. Villagomez last week,cingurged bothhouses to call for a special joint session addressinggovernmentdebts and the necessary special appropriations to settle them. "As a legislator, share the blame for this situation and feel we should resolve it. We should set aside our political differences and deal with this matter beforeit worsens," said Cing. Philippine Goods, a local construction firm, filed a suit in Superior Court against the government seeking payment of more Laude case.1 :4 David M. Cing than 145,000 for renovations it made on the Legislature and the Civil defense buildings, including interest of about 30,000. The lawsuit, filed by counsel Eric Smith last month pointed to a renovationcontract executed in April 1991 for the Legislature building. The job was completed in September, While most of the contracted amount was paid, a number of change orders resulted to some 140,786 in unpaid billings. The contracted amount for the in previous proceedings said Laude,acarpenter,waskilledafter he was "ran over" and "crushed" by one of the vehicles used in the kidnapping of the victim and a companion, Nilo Rivera. Dr. Hanan however suggested thatlaude wasalreadydead when he was allegedly "crushed." He told the court last week that he saw no blood coming out from a gash on Laude's shoulder. Laude's body was brought to thechc bysgl John Santos and investigator Nick Guerrero after it was found at a road side in Dan Dan homestead area on November 6.

But the Eighth Legislature failed to pass an appropriations act for FY 1993 and this debt hasgoneignored," said Cing. "Now assume the CNMgovernment will have to spend time and money in defense of this lawsuit,"thetiniansenatoradded, " This is a perfect example of what results from legislative apathy and negligence. This lawsuit stems from a simple bill that has remained unpaid through lack oflegislative appropriation," Cing said.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. (0600 GMT) and are to close at 8 p.m. (1900 GMT) in voting to replace a parliament that Milosevic, Serbia's president, dissolved in October as it appeared set to oust his government About 7 million of Serbia's 9.7 million people areeligibletovote. Milosevic's Socialists, the renamed Communists, hope to win a commanding two-thirds majority in the 2SD-seat parliament. But a variety of independent polls suggest they will fall far short of that goal because of popular anger over economic hardship, and could end up with even fewer than the 101seats they aged to form a majoritycoalition, Milosevic, who is not facing reelection, retains vast constitutional powers that would leave him in command. As a last resort, he could impose presidential rule. An alliance with the Serbian Radical Party of ultranationalist Vojislav Seselj gave Milosevic a commanding majority in the old parliament. But whenthe alliance collapsed and Seselj's backers tried to unseat the government, Milosevic called early elections. The Radicals arefurious at the president for pressuring Serbs in Bosnia and Croatia to cede some conquered territory in exchange for promises from the West to ease the trade sanctions. Details could emerge at peace talks scheduledfor Tuesdayin Geneva. Milosevic has had numerous built-in advantagesin the election campaign, including a monopoly on state radio and television. About 2 million ethnic Albanians in the southern province of Kosovo, a fifth of Serbia's population, are boycotting the elections as they continue to demand independence. There also are predictions of vote-rigging. nternational observers reported widespread irregularities during elections in 1990 and TheConferenceonSecurityand Cooperation in Europe, the main monitor of thepreviouselections, turned down an A- invitation to send observers this time becauseserbia has banned its human-rights monitors from the republic.,,, ' Marianas Variety 1i;1 «~ MONDAY,DECEMBER 20, MARANAS VARiETYNEWS AND VEws-7 No legalbasis to convert chiefs-counsel the RECENT reportedmove by some governmentofficialsto COlvert fromexceptedservicetocivil Service may have no legal basis under Public Law 7-31 nor any olher statute andmay therefore be improper, Civil Service Commission counsel Pat Halsellsaid n a legalopinion she submitted to Civil Service Chairman Gene Santos December 13, Halsell maintained that such reclassification must be based on merit and fitness,demonstrated by examination or by other examination of fitness. "Neitherstatutorynorregulatory guidelines exist to govern reclassificationfrom exceptedserviceto Civil Setvice.n general,it isrisky to take such. action without the relevant10 thereclassifications. "Neither of the two public laws, rnentiooconversionsfrcmexcepted servicetocivilservice.thesalary Act's mechanism for providing raises appears to be geared solely towards reclassifications among CivilServiceemployeesandnot to aconversionfromexceptedservice to Civil Service," read Halsell's opinion. "t therefore appears logical to conclude that the Legislature intended to address only 'conversions' within the Civil Service systemwhen itenactedtheselaws. One can also conclude that being silent 00 the other kind of conversion, the Act neither prevents nor enablessuchreclassifications. The CSCmustlook: elsewhereto deterexistenceof guidelines, since this invites allegations of arbitrary and capriciousaction." said Halsell. Halsell's opinion was soughtby Santos in response to concerns raised aboutthelegalityof conversions made by certain department division chiefs as reported by the media recently. t was allegedthatsuch reclassification was done for the purpose of preempting their possible replacementby theincomingadministration. Such conversion,of at least five division chiefs,was reportedly allowed by the PersonnelOffice and the Commissionwith Public Law 7-31 and Public Law 8-6as basis. nheropinion,halsellcontended that the two public laws are not nience during the proceedings.. They also told the court of BOE's alleged mistake in using wronggroundsfor thechallenges. All the reasons presented to the court however did not convince Castro that a preliminary injunction was necessary, thus denying the motion. Director Diaz has hailed the Superior Court's ruling. "We felt elated to find out that what we were doing was proper," Diaz said in an interview last week. Diaz said the board will continue the holding of hearings in the southern island this week and board members may start doing so today. During the proceedings, a challenged voter will be asked to appear before the panel of board members and willbe thrown with several questions to determine if there were problems with his qualifications as a voter. Challengers will also be asked to appear during the court proceedings. Votes of those with questionable qualifications will not be counted, according to Diaz, while those who are qualified to vote butwerechallengedwillhavetheir ballots affirmed and counted. Diaz predicted that the holding of hearings maytakeabout a week or so. t is very likely that the proceedings will be over by the end of the weekasboard members normally meets until 10:00 or HONOLULU (AP) - The pastor of the First Southern Baptist Church of Pearl Harbor believes the Grinches who stole Christmas presents intended for two needy families were boys between 12 and 16 years of age. The Rev. Ray Bennett said he based his conjecture on the types of presents taken and those left behind when achurch storage room was broken into last Tuesday night. The selective thieves opened each wrapped present, taking what they wanted and leaving the test behind. Amongthe missing gifts were a remote control dump truck, video games andclothes for teen-age boys. Those not taken included toys and articles of clothing for younger children. Bennett said members of the church had decided to help the 12 peoplein the two families - one in Waianae, the other on the North Shore ~ even though they don't know them. He said the families had been referred by the Angel Network, a nonprofit group dedicated 10 helping homeless and needy people. Rota hearings on contested votes begin JuanDiaz THE Board of Elections is expected to stan conducting hearings on challenged votes in Rota beginningthisweekfollowing the denial of a motion aimed at stopping theholding of such hearings, BOE Executive Director Juan Diaz said. SuperiorCourt PresidingJudge Alex Castro on Wednesday rejcted a petition by 75 voters preventing the board from carrying out its administrative functions. n handing down the decision, Castro emphasized that the judiciary has no business intruding the affairs of the executive branch unless it is time to do so. "Orderly government requires that thecourts not intrude into the day-to-day functions of the executive branch until the time is ripe to do so," Castro said.

The BOE has been prevented from certifying the results of the November 6 elections due to the challenged votes on Rota. Under the CNMl Constitution, the board cannot declare the outcome of the polls official and correct if there are challenges to some votes. Despite the clear results in the elections, apparent winners have been reluctant to make the necessary moves pending the result of the contested ballots.

She added that there exists no statute that expressly confers authority for the CSC to reclassify an employee in such manner. But assuming that the reclassification of an excepted service employee to Civil Service is perrnissible under current rules and regulations, such a reclassification would nonetheless be improper, if it circumvents thebasic purpose of the Civil Service system, which is to appoint and promote only on demonstrated merit and fitness. "The fundamental purpose of civil service laws and rules is to establish a merit system whereby FOR RESERVATON CALL: Ext "...,.. -." selections for appointments in certain branchesof public service may be made onthe basisof demonstrated relative fitness without regardsto politicalconsiderations, and to safeguard appointees against unjust charges of misconduct and inefficiency. and from being unjustly discriminated for political reasons or affiliations," continued Halsell in her opinion. "To be eligible for reclassification, the excepted service employee must be given an open examination, meaning the civil service position must be advertised, and the exam must be competitive. ftheposition is one that is prohibited by statute from being classified as a Civil Service position, the reclassification cannot be made," said Halsell, (RHA) iit eut!!e5!!!!!e!

That is partly because they lackopportunities to talk to one another about common problems. Citizens are encouraged to vote their self-interest,to write letters tocongressmen urging their particular concerns, to offer opinions in polls without considering views other thantheir own.

Afairing isadded to a plane toreducedrag. Pete Beckner, the manager of the Federal Aviation Administration's flightstandards office, said the missing fairing and damaged tail were discovered by the pilot after he landed. Beckner said the loss of the fairing wouldn't have caused the plane to lose control because it isn't part of the aircraft's structure. None of the passengers aboard the 48-seat plane were in-" jured, he said. Two FAA investigators inspected the damage Thursday.

The soldiers are returning to a nation in turmoil.the Dec. 12national election marked the rise of nationalist extremists such as VladimirZhirinovsky, who made a Russian military revival part of his campaign. "A great army is being dismantledthat simplydoesn't know. how to be anything other than an army," said the Rev. Juergen Petereit,pastorthevillageof 2,700 people outside the garrison gates.

"All the time,more civiliansare coming," said Hartmut Klucke, administrator of surrounding Zossen county.

Steve Prentice-Dunn, a psy- chology professor at the Universityof Alabama who studies gang violence, said some factors that couldaffectklanwatch's statistics are the growing number of blacks in the population and the stalled economy. Some black activists also have decried the increasing availabilityandpopularityof guns in their communities.

Klanwateh recorded 18 racemotivatedhornicidesin 1992with 11blackscharged, and 6racially motivated killings in 1991 with six blacks charged.
