T-birds Panama air show features new jets


HOWARD AFB (24th WG/PA) - The
Air Force Thunderbirds will fly into
Howard AFB Oct. 23 at 3:30 p.m. for
their scheduled Oct. 24 show over the
Bay of Panama near the Marriot Hotel
and Atlapa Convention Center begin-
ning at noon.
The Air Force is offering shuttle bus
service to Atlapafrom the Howard Thea-
ter at 10 a.m. and from the Albrook
parkinglot at 10:30 a.m. Buses willleave
Atlapa at 1:15 p.m. to return to Howard
andAlbrook.
Military community members are
welcomed to watch the Thunderbird's
arrival at Howard.
The team will add another page to the
Thunderbird history book with the intro-
duction of its ninth different type of
demonstration jet, the F-16C Fighting
Falcon.
"This season millions of fans will see
a new Thunderbird aircraft grace the
skies," said SSgt. Linda Ipser, Thunder-
bird public affairs representative. "Since
August 1982, the Thunderbirds flew the
A-model of the Fighting Falcon. The
squadron was also the last active-duty
unit to make the transition."
"We converted to the upgraded C-
model because we represent the best of
the Air Force - its people and inven-
tory," said Capt. Marc Paquette, Thun-
derbird maintenance officer.
"Every frontline F-16 squadron in the
Air Force employs the F-16C. It also
made sound sense for logistical and
combat-conversion reasons," Paquette
said.

Ipser said, the major parts of making
an F-16C a Thunderbird aircraft involved
swapping the gun system for a smoke
system, as well as each jet receiving the
traditional Thunderbird F-16 paint scheme.
In 1991, the team performed 75 offi-
cial demonstrations in front of more
than 9.5 million people in 30 states and


nine countries. The team has flown 3,131
demonstrations in its history, including
676 in the F-16A.
The team's fleet of nine A-model and
two B-model jets were initially trans-
ferred to a depot at Hill Air Force Base,
Utah.

all scheduled to be assigned to Air Na-
tional Guard units.
The team still uses 11 jets, with two F-
16Ds replacing the B-models.
"I'm sure with this new jet another
great chapter of Thunderbird history
begins in 1992," Paquette said.


Howard group gives newborn layette


by SSgt Reuben V. Martinez
24th Communications Squadron
HOWARD AFB (24th WG/PA) - The Howard
Hispanic Heritage Committee handed out layettes at the
Santo Tomas Hospital in Panama City in commemora-
tion of the 500th Anniversary of Christopher Colum-
bus' voyage to the new world.
Santo Tomas services the city's poorest citizens. The
layette went to the first child born Monday.
"This child represents the next 500 years of Hispanic
heritage as well as our dreams of strengthening the
bonds between ourselves and the local Panamanian
community even more," Capt. Jose Rivera, the com-
mittee chairman, said.
A baby boy, Jorge Adamis Sanchez, born at 12:06
a.m., was the beneficiary of the layette. Sanchez
weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces and was wide awake to
greet the committee members.
The 27-year-old mother, Zunilda Sanchez of San
Miguelito, said she was surprised. She'd noticed when
committee members entered the obstetrics ward, but
she had no idea the commotion would soon be directed
at her newborn son.
The day also marked the beginning of a cooperative
effort by Rodman and Howard members to celebrate
Hispanic heritage, said Command Master Chief Jose
Ruiz-Osuna, committee member from the U.S. Naval
Station Panama Canal - Rodman.
The group named outstanding Hispanics from the
Air Force and the Navy. SSgt. Pedro A. Serrano and
GMG-1 Jaime Martinez were recognized from Howard
and Rodman, respectively.

This year's committee will become a Hispanic Club
to conduct activities throughout the year. Its goals are to
educate the community about Hispanic American con-
tributions and educate Hispanics about their heritage,
Rivera said. For information, call 284-5546/5418.

X-Mas sponsorship

program gearing up
FORT CLAYTON (USARSO PAO) - Joint Task
Force - Panama is gearing up for the annual Christ-
mas Sponsorship Program. '
Through the program, units, staff offices, direc-
torates, Panama Canal Commission and civic or-
ganizations can adopt a school, orphanage or home
for the elderly during the holiday season. "Anyone
can participate, even down to the individual family
level," said Jeannine Wilder, project coordinator.
Those wishing to adopt a site must begin with
registration. "In order to hold fund raisers and pur-
chase goods.for the program through the post ex-
change and commissaries, units or individuals need
to be registered through (their service's) representa-
tive," Wilder said.
With nearly 40 groups already registered with the
program, Wilder said the goal is to have total of100
groups participating by Christmas. "Last year we
had a wonderful turnout, 91 groups, and it will be
hard to beat," she said. "But I have high hopes and.
we are expanding to more remote sites this year."
Groups can be a part of the spirit of giving by
collecting such things as school supplies, clothes,
toys, fanning tools and vegetable seeds. "Many
people may think everything has to be new, but that's
not necessarily true, especially with the schools,"
Wilder said. "These schools are in such need that
things such as used pens, pencils, crayons and

U.S. assists rescue attempt


Mission suspended

after three days

by TSgt. Rene Zapata Jr.
OL.I Air Rescue Service
HOWARD AFB ,Panama - The U.S.
Air Force joined forces with their Brazil-
ian and Bolivian counterparts during a
combined search and rescue operation
for a missing aircraft with two Bolivian
general officers on board.
TheU.S. Ambassadorto BoliviainLa
Paz requested U.S. Southern Command
assistance in sending a team down to
assist in the operation.
The request went through Department
of Defense channels and aU.S. AirForce
Search and Rescue Task Force was as-
sembled for the deployment.
The task force was assembled by units


from two bases.
From Patrick AFB, the 301st Air Rescue
Squadron provided an HC-130P and 14
crewmembers, including three parares-
cuemen jumpers.
From Howard AFB, Operating Loca-
tion-India, Air Rescue Service provided
a search and rescue mission coordinator
and the 24th Communications Squadron
provided two radio operators for the
mission.
The missing aircraft, a twin-engine
Piper Seneca II with six people on board,
was enroute from Robero to Puerto Suarez
Sept 10 when it encountered bad weather
in eastern Bolivia.
Bolivian Air Force authorities believe
the pilot attempted to return to Robero
after the bad weather prevented him from
landing at Puerto Suarez.

ter was set up with SAR mission coordi-

Nagel and Assistant GunnerPvt. 2 Jon Demmon played
an important role in suppressing the enemy in a com-
bined training exercise Oct. 2.
S o important a role, that the platoon easily overcame
the enemy with only four friendly force soldiers being
wounded, said SFC Michael Huffman, 1st Platoon
sergeant.
This was the finale to 1st Platoon, Company C's
mission that started as Oct. 1 was taking shape. The
platoon moved in with the rest of 1st Battalion, 508th
Infantry as they air assaulted into Gatun Drop Zone
from here as part of Operation Tropic Strike, a joint
training mission with the 2nd Battalion, 75th Rangers.
The assault took four lifts by four UH-60 Black-
hawks and two CH-47 Chinook aircraft, said Maj.
Thomas Hayden, executive officer, 1-508th.
After the assault, two companies conducted a pas-
sage of lines with the Rangers who were already set in
defensive positions around the drop zone.
A passage of lines is when one unit crosses over
another friendly unit's line of defense and continues
with a mission, Hayden said.
Once past friendly lines, the infantrymen crossed the
Chagres in rubber boats, Huffman said. The soldiers
then walked from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through the jungle to
get to their objective.
This is not as easy as it sounds.
The infantrymen carry about 35-40 pounds of gear in
their rucksacks along with their weapon. Assistant
gunners must carry up to 90 pounds with the extra
ammunition, Huffman said.


nators from the Bolivian 22nd AirTrain-
ing Group, the Brazilian 22nd SAR Group
and OL-I ARS, officials said.
The 24th Communications Squadron
provided communications for command
and control throughout the mission, offi-
cials said.
The HC-13 OP searched 5,270 square
miles for three days with negative re-
sults.
The terrain in the search area con-
sisted of triple canopy rain forest, sur-
rounded by extensive mountain ranges,
according to Bolivian Air Force authori-
ties.
After consultations between Boliv-
ian, Brazilian and U.S. search and rescue
mission coordinators, the group suspended
the air search because sufficient infor-
mation about the aircraft's last known
position was not available, said Bolivian
officials.

Drop Zone.

Between 1 and 4:30 p.m., the platoon conducted
reconnaissance patrols of the area to determine the best
avenues of approach for the attack.
At 4:30 p.m., the infantrymen went onto the assault
line about 100 meters from the enemy and lay silent
until 11:45 p.m. when they started low crawling through
the wet and muddy jungle to the objective.
Once on the objective, the platoon initiated fire.
Huffman said the idea at this point was to put so much

move...we totally surprised the
enemy."

fire onto the objective that the enemy were eitherkilled,
ran off, or forced into bunkers so they could not return
fire. Because oftheteamwork of the M-60 machine gun
team, the platoon was able to suppress the enemy.
This was one of two attacks the morning of Oct. 2 to
take out a logistics base and a command and control
point.
Company A, the Moatengators, were also in the
jungle on a main attack, said Capt. Mike Schleicher,
company commander.
From the drop zone to Camp Rock, the company's
objective, it's about 8 kilometers. The main challenge
for the company was having to go uphill the entire way.
"It was avery challenging move, but they did a good
job and I was real prohd of them,"Schleicher said. "We
totally surprised the enemy."
Just as the Moatengators were moving onto the
objective it started to rain and that helped cover the
company's movement.
It is hard to move around in thejungle without being
heard, Schleicher said.
While Charlie and Alpha companies were in the
jungle, Bravo Company stayed at the drop zone and
relieved the Rangers of their duty and took over the
defensive position.
Beside the infantry, there were about 440 people in-
volved in the operation from 470th Military Intelli-
gence Battalion, a logistics element from 41st Area
Support Group, and a platoon of engineers from the
59th Engineer Company, Hayden said.
After the mission, the companies moved to the pick
up zone and flew back home to Fort Kobbe.

Wilder said fund-raising campaigns
can be used, but these are restricted to
non-gambling events.
"Those who sponsor the smaller
sites sometimes put the names of the
children into a drawing with each
person buying for the child whose
name they drew," Wilder added.
Units may also use government
vehicles for the program.
"This is the only time of the year
when we have permission to use gov-
ernment vehicles and aircraft as a
means to reach the sites," said Wilder.
"We are also authorized to visit the
sites in duty uniform."

Widespread protests mark Columbus Day


MIAMI (Reuters) - Exactly 500 years
after Christopher Columbus first made
footprints in the sand of the New World,
angry Indians throughout the hemisphere
marched and splashed red paint on stat-
ues of the explorer to protest the begin-
ning of European domination.
While New York and Chicago held
traditional Columbus Day parades with
fanfare and floats, the anniversary was
dominated by bitter Indian protests which
included large demonstrations in Bolivia
and others in Mexico, Guatemala, Nica-
ragua, the Dominican Republic, Chile,
Peru and some U.S. cities.
But much of the world yawned at the
holiday, ignoring the voyage in which
Columbus claimed all of the hemisphere
for Spain.
Even Columbus' own hometown of
Genoa, Italy, shunned any celebrations.
Festivities for the city's favorite son were
cancelled after devastating floods last
month.
Dozens of Indian groups throughout
Latin America seized the anniversary to
show their disgust for the explorer's
"discovery" of native peoples.
In Bolivia, some 50,000 peasant farm-
ers marched to protest Columbus' arri-
val. Local radio said 25,000 to 30,000
peasant farmers marched in the capital
La Paz and in Potosi, the legendary area
where Spanish conquistadors forced
indigenous Bolivians to dig for silver.
Thousands of others took to the streets.
In neighboring Chile, several thou-
sand Mapuche Indians also marched
through various cities. Police and scores
of demonstrators fought running battles
inthe streets afterone marching Santiago.
In Mexico, thousands gathered in the
capital city's historic main plaza, chant-
ing and waving signs. "What do Mex-

the crowd.
Protesters defaced statues of Colum-
bus in both Mexico City and San Salva-
dor, splashing them with red paint, sym-
bolic of the blood spilled by the invaders.
Indian groups in El Salvador also staged
mock battles between sword-wielding
"conquistadors" and Indians armed with
bows and arrows.
Nobel Peace Prize candidate Rigoberta
Menchu led thousands of Mayans in a
Guatemalan demonstration against the


European explorers who stole their land
and brought disease.
"How beautiful it will be when the
land is (again) ours, because this is where
our ancestors died and because the land
belongs to us," said Menchu, who wore
the colorful dress of her ancestors.
The controversy surrounding the 500th
anniversary has been so intense that
Pope John Paul II carefully chose con-
ciliatory words for a sermon he delivered
in the Dominican Republic. The pontiff,
who has praised Columbus several times


during his trip, called for respect of the
rights of Indians and social justice for all
in Latin America.
One Dominican man was shot in the
head and seriously wounded when doz-
ens of youths piled up garbage and built
flaming barricades to block streets, then
stoned police cars.
Cuba's Fidel Castro, whose govern-
ment has been under fire for human rights
violations, blasted the anniversary as a
violent intrusion of Europe into Amer-
ica.


Venezuelan leaders denying


Perez assassination attempt


CARACAS, Venezuela (Reuters) - Confusion sur-
rounded reports of an assassination attempt Monday
against Venezuelan President Carlos Andres Perez after
presidential bodyguards killed two people in a truck
they said was speeding toward the presidential convoy.
Television and radio reports said there had been an
assassination attempt, but the chief government spokes-
man described the shooting incident as confusing and
denied there had been an assassination attempt.
Angel Zambrano, head of the Central Information
Office, who was with Perez when the incident occurred
near the Colombian border, said in a radio interview,
"There has been tremendous confusion. There was no
such assassination attempt against President Perez."
Zambrano later told Reuters that presidential body-
guards killed two unarmed Guajiro Indian men as they
sped toward the convoy.
"The (driver) was drunk and he was going to run into
the people at the site," Zambrano said.
One army officer and four soldiers were injured
when the truck plowed into a group of people. Four
children and two adults also were hurt in the incident,
Zambrano said.
A news editor at a local television station, which had
a reporter at the scene, told Reuters the presidential
guard had opened fire "because they thought it was an
assassination attempt."
Zambrano's statements contradicted eyewitness re-
ports from television and radio reporters on the scene in
Paraguaipoa, a small town on the Colombian border in
Venezuela's western Zulia state, where Perez had gone
to open a hospital.
According to the reports, unidentified gunmen opened
fire on the presidential convoy, which included the bus
carrying Perez, Zambrano, Interior Minister Luis Pinerua
Ordaz and Zulia state Governor Oswaldo Alvarez Paz.
According to the broadcast reports, three people
were killed.
Perez, who took office in February 1989 for a five-


yearterm in this oil-rich country, escaped an assassina-
tion attempt in a failed military coup attempt eight
months ago in Caracas.
At least 25 people were killed in the failed Feb. 4
attempt, during which loyal troops whisked Perez out of
the presidential palace as the rebels rammed a tank into
it.
It was the first open military challenge toPerezinhis
two presidential terms, the first of which ran from 1974
to 1979.
Pinerua also denied there had been an assassination
attempt Monday and urged Venezuelans to remain
calm, saying in statements to a local television station
that security forces fired on the truck when the driver
refused an order to stop.
He said several people, including an army lieutenant
and a soldier, were injured when the truck plowed
into a group of bystanders, mostly Guajiro Indians.
Guajiros, who livein both Venezuela and Colombia,
are a major Indian group known for their colorful tex-
tiles.
"There was no impact against the president's bus,
and apparently no shots were fired against it," Pinerua
said. "We thought some drunk had fired shots in the air.
You know the Guajiros are always armed, and they are
trigger-happy."
Following initial reports of the incident, one televi-
sion station showed pictures of visibly nervous body-
guards and members of the presidential honor guard
patrolling the area around the hospital.
The attack comes at a tense time in Venezuela, a
nation still shaken by an assassination attempt on
Congressman and prominent labor leader Antonio Rios
less than a month ago, as well as a more recent firebomb
attack on the house of former President JaimeLusinchi.
The leftist Bolivarian Liberation Forces that claimed
responsibility for the attacks had threatened to target
more public figures if the government failed to make a
real effort to clean up corruption.


Escobar's mother claims
fugitive son will surrender
BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - Fugitive co-
caine king Pablo Escobar Gaviria, one of the
world's most wanted men, intends to surrender to
Colombian justice authorities for a second time
but is in no hurry, his mother said Sunday.
Escobar, head of the Medellin cocaine cartel,
first surrendered in June 1991 to take advantage of
a government leniency offer. He escaped from jail
in July and has not been seen since.

Peru death toll hits 47
after Shining Path attack
AYACUCHO, Peru (Reuters) - The death toll
from a weekend Shining Path guerrilla attack in an
Andean highland town rose to 47 after three of the
wounded died in a hospital, military and hospital
officials said Monday.
The Andean attack Saturday - the biggest
since Shining Path leader Abimael Guzman was
captured last month - left 30 women and chil-
dren among the dead in the town of Huayao in the
southeastern region of Ayacucho.

Mexico to spend $33m
on archeological sites
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - The Mexican gov-
ernment said Monday it would spend $33 million
over the next two years to preserve and continue
further excavation at 10 archeological sites.
Restoration work will begin shortly at four of
the most famous ruins - the pyramids of Teo-
tihuacan outside Mexico City built before the
birth of Christ, the Zapotec ceremonial center
atop Monte Alban in Oaxaca, and the Mayan
religious centers of Chichen Itza and Palenque in
the Yucatan Peninsula.
Despite their age, beauty and importance to
Mexico as tourist attractions, many ancient Indian
sites have been neglected or left half-buried.

Hurricane Andrew forces policy changes


WASHINGTON (American Forces Information
Service) - Within days of the destruction at Homestead
Air Force Base, Fla., officials changed Department of
Defense personnel policies to help those affected by
Hurricane Andrew.
The changes are permanent and will help any service-
member or federal employee affected by future disas-
ters.
DoD will now allow stateside evacuation allow-
ances for both military and civilian personnel. For
civilian workers, officials approved indefinite adminis-
trative leave - leave with pay, said Christopher Jehn,
assistant secretary of defense for force management and
personnel.
"The devastation Hurricane Andrew wrought called
for extraordinary measures," Jehn said. "We want to
reassure people that they will receive all the pays and
allowances they are entitled to" even if the non-work


period extends for several months.
Andrew uprooted more than 11,000 at the base with
most also losing their belongings. About 5,000 active
duty members, family members and 1,500 civilian
employees were assigned to the base, home to the 31st
Fighter Wing.
The Air Force will make arrangements for military
personnel as quickly as possible, Jehn said. This could
mean a move to another installation, continuation of the
status quo or a call back to Homestead. Air Force per-
sonnel were put on temporary duty when they were
evacuated, Jehn said. Normally temporary duty status
doesn't extend past six months, he added, but it could be
extended.
When evacuation of the area was announced, civil-
ian employees were given five days' administrative
leave. Whenit became obvious that five days would not
be enough, DoD gave local commanders the authority


to grant administrative leave for an indefinite period.
"It was a change we could make ourselves," Jehn
said. "Many of our policies, regulations affecting travel,
temporary duty, evacuation allowances and the like
were obviously designed with evacuation of a base
overseas in mind."
Overseas evacuations that quickly come to mind are
last year's pullouts at Clark Air Base and Subic Bay in
the Philippines following the eruption of Mount Pi-
natubo, Jehn continued. DoD realized policies and
regulations that aided the Philippine evacuees could not
be used stateside. DoD personnel officials, with help
from the Office of Personnel Management and the
Office of Management and Budget, set about to change
them quickly.
By the weekend following the hurricane, revised
regulations were in place, allowing the payment of
evacuation allowances and other monies.


Navy reviews magazine sales


WASHINGTON (AP) - Should Navy commis-
saries sell Playboy, Penthouse and other sexually
explicit magazines?
The Navy is considering that question as part of a
new program to stamp out sexual harassment.
The move, which the Navy is calling a "review,"
is prompting concern that the Navy may be going
overboard as it attempts to deal with the repercus-
sions of the Tailhook sex abuse scandal.
The mere rumor that adult publications might be
banned from the military's store shelves prompted a
stem letter from Playboy's lawyers to Christopher
Jehn, the assistant secretary of defense for personnel.
"Any such ban would clearly violate the First
Amendment," Bruce J. Ennis, who represents Play-
boy Enterprises Inc., said in a Sept. 8 letter.
"Playboy Enterprises takes this matter very seri-
ously, and has authorized me to take whatever steps
may be necessary, including litigation, to ensure that
there will be no interruption in the sale of Playboy
magazines at Navy PXs, or at any military PXs,"
Ennis wrote.
Earlier this year the base commander at the Re-
cruit Training Center in Orlando, Fla., decided to
remove Playboy and Penthouse from base exchanges.
The bases oneofthree boot camps forsailors, but
itis the only one that has mixed classes for males and
females. It has been the site of some sexual harass-
ment problems for the service.


"The sale of adult materials is
permitted... but it is also not man-
dated."
Pietropaoli
a Navy spokesman

A Navy spokesman, Lt. Cmdr. Steve Pietropaoli,
said Tuesdaythe decision was aresponseto "consis-
tent complaints" that thepublications were demean-
ing to women, and after the commander determined
that "these publications were notin accordance with
his mission of teaching young recruits about the
importance of human dignity."
Pietropaoli said the Navy "is not contemplating a
ban" on such publications, but that the policy of
allowing them to be sold on bases is worth reviewing.
"The sale of adult materials is permitted ... but it is
also not mandated," the spokesman said.
It is within the purview of any commander "to
review what is on his shelves and decide whetheritis
helping his mission of good order and discipline or
not," Pietropaoli said.
The review of the publications was announced
Tuesday as part of Acting Navy Secretary Sean
O'Keefe's efforts to eradicate sexual harassment
from the service.


New systems


weather tests
WASHINGTON (American Forces Information
Service) - Outside, the Florida sun beats down, and the
85-degree temperature feels much hotter but Kirk Ve-
lasco works inside, wearing an Arctic parka to protect
himself from minus 65 degree temperatures and biting
winds to test an F-117A stealth fighter.
Nearby, other personnel have just subjected the
Army's Air Defense Anti-Tank System to swirling
sandstorms.
Velasco, a mechanical engineer, directs the McKin-
ley Climatic Laboratory at Eglin Air Force Base.
Completed in May 1947, the laboratory was renamedin
1971 to honor Air Force Col. Ashely McKinley, one of
its pioneers. Before McKinley and others created the
lab, tests were conducted outdoors. Researchers were at
the mercy of Mother Nature. More important, they
could not duplicate test conditions time after time. The
indoor facility at Eglin gave them that flexibility.
The first tests in 1947 included the B-29 bomber, the
P-51 fighter, the Sikorsky R-5D helicopter, trucks,
tanks and clothing. Since then, the staff has tested more
than 350 aircraft and 2,000 pieces of equipment. These
include materials for the Apollo capsule and insulating
materials for the NASA space shuttle, bomb shelters for
the Defense Nuclear Agency and even commercial tires
the Army considered buying.
Foreign governments can use the facility for a fee
only if American forces will use the foreign equipment
as well, Velasco said. For example, a Canadian com-
pany is building the ADATS for use by Canadian and

Velasco said McKinley still has the largest test
chamber in the world and can simulate the broadest
range of climatic conditions.
"We can bring our facility down to minus 105
degrees Fahrenheit and up to plus 170 degrees Fahren-
heit," he said. "It is-usually easier for us to simulate
heat. It normally takes 24 hours to get minus 65 degrees
and 12 hours to get plus 140.
"We can simulate fog, rainstorms, snowstorms and
sandstorms. We have several kinds of sand and dust, so
we can simulate appropriate conditions for beach land-
ings or another Desert Storm," Velasco said.
The lab has six test chambers. The large main


chamber can hold the C-5A Galaxy, the Air Force's
largest transport plane. The main chamber is 252 feet
wide, 201 feet long and 70 feet high in the center, and
has 55,000 square feet of usable floor space.
Researchers use McKinley's smaller chambers for
altitude testing and testing tanks, trucks and other
vehicles.
In earlier days, humans sat in McKinley's atitjde
chamber, but now, it is only for equipment The eMa-
ber can duplicate altitudes up to 75,000 feet, with
temperatures down to minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit It
can also simulate rapid decompression, going frmw
8,000 feet to 40,000 feet in 3.5 seconds.


Antarctica crash


kills 3, injures 2

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand (AP) - A U.S.
Navy pilot and co-pilot were in a hospital Tuesday after
their helicopter crashed in near hurricane-force winds in
frigid Antarctica, killing three others.
Doctors said pilot Lt. Cmdr. Edward L. Crews, 39, of
Baton Rouge, La., and co-pilot Lt. John C. Serralles Jr.,
28, of North Patchogue, N.Y., were in serious but stable
condition in Christchurch Public Hospital.
Crews has severe internal injuries. Serralles has two
broken legs and a dislocated pelvis.
Killed in the crash on Tuesday were P01 Benjamin
W. Micou, 35, of Michigan, along with New Zealand
civilians Garth E. Varcoe, 49, and Terry F. Newport,
31.
The UH-1N Iroquois helicopter came down on the icy
coastline of Ross Island on a routine flight from Cape
Bird to Scott Base in New Zealand's sector of the frozen
continent.
It had been flying at about 100 feet in poor visibility
and 70 mph winds when it crashed near Mount Erebus
where an Air New Zealand DC-10 crashed in 1979,
killing 257 people.
A hurricane is defined as having sustained winds of at
least 74 mph.

Recycling advocate


left 'holding the bag'


Dear Mayors' Corner,
Many American embassy people I
know have many paper bags from the
commissary which are in excellent con-
dition. I would like to see recycling started
at the commissary for these "like new"
paper bags whereby a receptacle is pro-
vided outside the building (under cover)
forpeople to return paper bags for reuse.
Karen Barnes
American Embassy

Dear Ms. Barnes,
It's a great idea but according to De-
fense Commissary Agency Policy Letter
40-11 dated Feb. 26, 1992, "The com-
missary will not be a conduit for the
collection or dissemination of consumer
generated cardboard, paper, or plastics
for recycling efforts."
Patrons can't bring bags in for others
to use for sanitation, pest control, and
manpower reasons, says the deputy dis-
trict commander for DeCA. However,
patrons are encouraged to bring paper
and plastic bags back to the commissary
for their own use.
Recycling isn't a dead issue, says an
Panama Army Communities of Excel-
lence team member. PACE is working


'M r

with agencies in Panama to promote
recycling and hopes to have program in
the near future. Watch Tropic Times and
Southern Command Network for details.

In a world where natural disasters

Bulldogs smash Green Devils 34-13


300 rushing yards help


Balboa stay unbeaten


by Sgt. John "Gus" Hall
Tropic Times Sports Editor
BALBOA STADIUM (Tropic Times)
- Before his game against the Balboa
Bulldogs here Oct. 9, Panama Canal
College Green Devils football coach Lou
Husted looked in the sparsely populated
stands and said, "Judging by the size of
the crowd, I guess everyone's conceding
the win to the Bulldogs."
Husted was a prophet - at least for
one night.
Tailback Paolo Ameglio rushed for
152 of his team's 300 yards, scoring
once, and teammate split end Jerome
Price added two more touchdowns to
lead the Bulldogs to a 34-13 victory over
the Green Devils.
The Bulldogs remained the only un-
defeated team (5-0) in the Department of
Defense Dependent Schools football
league. The Green Devils fell to 2-3.
On the first play from scrimmage -
14 seconds into the game - Ameglio
served notice to the Green Devils de-
fense. He went off tackle and raced down
the sideline for an 80-yard score. Eric
Holland converted his first of four extra
point conversions and the Bulldogs led
7-0.
After the Green Devils offense stalled,
the defense made things happen. On second
and 10, linebacker Quint Underwood
nailed Ameglio for a four-yard loss. On
third and long, Ameglio was held to a
two-yard gain on a plunge, and the Bull-
dogs were forced to punt.


Green Devils tailback Wilbert Reese
gave his team a spark with a 95-yard
touchdown on the punt return. The extra
point attempt was blocked, and the Green
Devils trailed 7-6.
After trading stalled drives with the
Green Devils, the Bulldogs got on track.
Ameglio connected with split end Ray-
mond Morris on a flea flicker for a 41-
yard gain that put the Bulldogs deep in
PCC territory. On the nextplay, Ameglio
paved the way for Price's first TD with a
vicious block. The extra point was good
and the Balboa led 14-6.
The Bulldogs defense came up with
the big play on PCC's next possession.
Green Devil quarterback Tyler Quinn hit
split end William Pohl for a short gain.
Pohl fumbled and Bulldogs defensive
end Brian Swenty recovered the ball on
the PCC 26. The PCC defense.kept the
Bulldogs in check and held them to a
missed field goal attempt.
After a bad punt, the Bulldogs took
over in Green Devil territory with less
than five minutes left in the first half.
Knowing the PCC defense would key on
Ameglio, the Bulldogs faked to him arid
gave the ball to split back Alex Staton
who rumbled for nine yards. Ameglio
added 10 more up the middle and was
brought down at the 10-yard line. Price
scored on a sprint draw and the Bulldogs
led 21-6 at the half.
In the second half, the Bulldogs con-
tinued to use the big play to put points on
the board. Tight end C.J. Howard scored
on a 66-yard reverse and Morris caught a

Canal Commission Green Devil quarterback Tyler Quinn.


19-yard quick slant from Price for an-
other score. The Green Devils only sec-
ond half points came on a 30-yard TD
pass from Quinn to Pohl.
Bulldogs head coach Vince Martinez
was happy about his victory over the
Green Devils, but said his team needs to
improve to win tonight's game against
the Curundu Cougars.
"To beat the Cougars again (the Bull-


dogs won an earlier matchup 22-12) we'll
have to play betterthan we did last time,"
Martinez said. "The Cougars had two
early first quarter turnovers and had to
play catchup the rest of the way."
The Cristobal Tigers and Balboa Red
Machine face off at Balboa Stadium at
5:30 p.m. tonight and the Curundu Cou-
gars and Balboa Bulldogs will playing the
following game.

-41st group wins tourney


by Sgt. John "Gus" Hall
Tropic Times Sports Editor
FORT CLAYTON (Tropic Times) -
During the Columbus Day Basketball
tournament some people doubted the
ability of the 41st Area Support Group
coach to get the job done. After all, how
could a woman coach a men's team through
three days of grueling play? When it was
over, anyone wlio questioned Angela
Newton's coaching skills had to feel silly,
as her team captured the title Monday
afternoon.
Without a coach, the 41st lost its first
game of the double-elimination tourney
46-38 to the Downtown Express. Realiz-
ing they were a little disorganized, the
41st players decided they needed an
experienced coach. So they called on
Newton who coached most of them to
victory in a recent tournament at Rodman
Naval Station. Sheresponded by helping
them pound out five straight wins.
Newton's critics only added fuel to
her fire.
"Not only am I going to win this thing,
I'm going to look good doing it," the


confident Newton said.
Her players looked good too- on the
court that is. After beating the 193rd
Support Battalion 73-58, TheSportsmen
56-51 and Michelob Dry 47-41 in the
loser's bracket, the 41st got a chance to
avenge its loss to the Express.
The Express led 7-6 early, but lost the
lead for good when the 41st's Melvin
Turner caught fire. He scored on a feed
from Reggie Milbry, nailed a hook shot
and canned a three-pointer on consecu-
tive possessions. Turner showed off his
defensive prowess by stealing a Vince
Duncan pass, dishing the ball to Danny
Harley who scored and drew the foul.
The three-point play gave the 41st a 16-
10 advantage and forced the Express to
call timeout with 7:14 left in the first
half.
The 41st expanded its lead to double
digits - highlighted by Dale Christo-
pher's trey - and led 34-18 at the half.
In the second half, the 41st pushed its
lead to 21 in impressive fashion. Christo-
pher hit Milbry on a breakaway who
followed through on a thundering dunk
that electrified the crowd and gave the


41st a 46-25 lead. Primus Campbell of
the Express tried to duplicate Milbry's
feat, but missed the jam badly. That
pumped up the 41st fans even more,
forcing the Express to call time and re-
group.
The break helped only the 41st as it
coasted to a 60-34 win, forcing an if
game.
In game two, the Express jumped out
to a short-lived 6-2 lead. A skyhook and
a breakaway layup by 41st's Turner erased
the only Express lead, just minutes into
the first half. The Express got close at 17-
14, but Milbry quickly took the life out of
the Express comeback with a second
crowd-charging dunk. The 41st domi-
nated the offensive boards, getting many
second-chance shots and led 27-19 at the
half.
Aristides Clarke's layup brought the
Express within six, but was answered by
another Christopher trey. With the 41st
up by 10, Milbry hammeredthe final nail
in the Express coffin. He scored on an
outside jumper, dished a sweet pass to
Andre Toussaint who scored and drew
the foul, and hit Nathaniel Taylor for a


fast breaklayup, extending the 41st lead
to 45-30. The Express tried to rally but
the deficit was too much to recover from
and bowed 56-42.
One of the competitors who didn't
doubt Newton's coaching skills was
Duncan of the Express.
"I'm glad. to see a woman coaching
basketball and I'm sure there are many
women who would like to be playing in
these tournaments too," Duncan said.
Although Newton could have rubbed
her victory in the faces of her doubters,
she only praised her team.
"I'm just happy we did it. I'm thrilled
for the fellas; they really deserved it."

Miami remembers 1972


Dallas fans can breathe easier,
Buffalo fans can only wonder, and in
Miami thoughts turn to 1972 - the
year the Dolphins won it all with a
perfect 17-0 record.
The Cowboys rebounded from their
Monday night debacle a week ago
against the Eagles by soundly spank-
ing the Seahawks 27-0. Because of
Philadelphia's loss to Kansas City, the
Cowboys have tied up first place
again in the NFC East.
The Bills have dropped two in a
row and have fallen farther behind the
undefeated Dolphins. This week
Buffalo gets some much needed rest
with a bye. Are the Dolphins walking
away with the division title? Don't be
so quick to concede, Bills fans. Five
of Miami's last seven games are
against the Oilers, 49ers, Saints,
Raiders and Bills.
And finally, last week Gus pre-
dicted that the Eagles would beat the
Chiefs 20-16. But he also wrote, "If
the Eagles are going to lose in the first
half of the season it will be in Arrow-
head." On Sunday morning he told me
that there was no doubt about it, the
Chiefs would beat the undefeated
Eagles. In all fairness I have to give
Gus credit for the correct pick on the
game. The season standings are: Gus
48-27, Buck 44-31.
49ERS HIT PAYDIRT - Usually
when the Falcons and 49ers meet,
sparks fly. San Francisco leads the
series 29-20-1, and in those 50 games
the 49ers have averaged 21 points per
game to the Falcons' 16. The Falcons
have a history of winning when the
49ers take them for granted. If Atlanta
has any dreams of winning this game
they must shut down Steve Young's
rushing attack. Young had an off day
last week with only 69 yards rushing.
Look for a better week against the
Blackbirds. 49ers 24, Falcons 17.
FULL MOON OVER DENVER -
Forget home field advantage. In the
30 games these two teams have
played, Houston has a 19-10-1
advantage. The Oilers have outscored
the Broncos by an average score of
27-20 and nothing should stop them
from repeating history. Denver is the
worst 4-2 team in history. Warren
Moon has a target rich environment to
work in. Oilers 24, Broncos 13.
COWBOYS AND CHIEFS, OH
MY! - When the Chiefs and Cow-
boys go to war one thing is for certain-
- much points. The series is tied at


1. Which team does San Francsco's
Jerry Rice have his most career re-
ceptions, yards and touchdowns
against?

2. Who had more 300-yard passing
games last season, Steve Young or
Chris Miller?

3. Since 1986, who leadsthe Eagles-
Redskins regular-season series?

4. True or False. Dallasrunning back


2-2, with both teams 1-1 at home.
The average score between these
teams is 31-26 in the Cowboys'
favor. Both teams are in contention
for their respective division title. The
receivers should have a field day.
Cowboys 27, Chiefs 24.
EAGLES FLY INTO WASH-
INGTON - The Birds, humbled by
the Chiefs last week, will be looking
for some payback. The Redskins are
still celebrating last Monday night's
bombing of Denver, 34-3. Are the
Skins for real? No. The Eagles'
defense is stunning, and their secon-
dary will be ready for Mark Rypien.
The Redskins on the other hand, must
win to stay alive for wildcard conten-
tion. Washington has won 16 out of
the last 20 games played against the
Eagles in RFK Stadium by an
average score of 21-14. If the
playoffs started today, the boys from
D.C. would be watching on TV.
Eagles 23, Redskins 13.
BEARS HOST THE BUCS -
Forget that the Bucs consider
themselves a playoff contender. Yes,
Sam Wyche has them improving, but
the Buccaneers couldn't get to the
Super Bowl if it was held in Tampa
Stadium and Vinnie Testeverde was
driving the bus. Da Bears lead the
series 22-6. Average score? 24-14.
Tampa has won only one game in
Chicago in the past 12 years (32-31
in 1989). Mike Ditka will have his
team fired up after their fiasco
against Minnesota two weeks ago.
The Bears blew a 20-0 lead against
the Vikings and lost 21-20. Then,
after a long, quiet plane ride home,
they had a bye week last weekend.
The Bears will be hungry and know
that a loss to Tampa in front of the
home fans will be the beginning of
the end. Ditka's team will be ready.
Bears 23, Buccaneers 17.
The rest of the action: Cleveland
20, Green Bay 13; Los Angeles
Raiders 17, Seattle 10; New Orleans
24, Phoenix 14; N.Y. Giants 17, Los
Angeles Rams 14; Indianapolis 24,
San Diego 10; Miami 27, New
England 13; and Pittsburgh 27,
Cincinnati 13.
Two teams are taking the week
off: the Bills and Jets. Gus the Guru,
polished up his magic ball and sees (
the outcomes a little differently:
Falcons 30, Niners 27; Oilers 31,
Broncos 20; Cryboys 24, Chiefs 20;
Eagles 17, Redskins 13; Bears 26,
Bucs 20; Pack 21, Brownies 10;
Hawks 27, Raiders 24; Saints 16,
Cards 10; Rams 24, Giants 17;
Chargers 13, Colts 6; Dolphins 30,
Patsies 13; Kitties 33, Steelers 27.
Gus will be back next week to
give you the games after conferring
with Bobbie the Bookie. Could it be
that Gus has outside help with his
picks? Say it isn't so, Gus!


Emmitt Smith had more 100-yard
rushing games last year than Kan-
sas City's Christian Okoye and Barry
Word combined.

5. Who gave up more points last
season Denver or Houston?

Offensive line woes


killing Denver's output


DENVER (AP) - Dan Reeves was
able to pinpoint the Denver Broncos'
problem that led to their Monday night
drubbing at the hands of the Washington
Redskins.
And it's got everything to do with the
offensive line.
"You have to have pass protection to
be able to pass the ball," Reeves said
Tuesday, "and you've got to have block-
ing to be able to run the ball.
"You can't throw it if you can't block
them up front. So we've got to look at it.
Do we have to keep more people in and
send out less people? We've got to come
up with some way that we can get the ball
off."
Reeves called this team his poorest
offensively at this point of the season. He
said the 12.2 points the Broncos are
averaging this years thelowestin his 12
years with the team.
"I don't thinkthere's any good time to
go in and play the national champions in
their back yard," Reeves said. "We just
didn't play good. There's no excuses.
We made too many mistakes. We've got
to regroup and come back and try to play
better."
Reeves blamed the low numbers on
poor pass protection.
Denver, which is tied with New Eng-
land for most sacks allowed, has yielded
25 this season, five Monday night. Quar-
terback Iohn Elway was the victim in 24
of those sacks.
"It gets a little bit old," Elway said of
the pounding. "But it also comes with
the territory."
The Broncos head into Sunday's home
game against Houston (4-1) with a 4-2
record, good enough for a tie with Kan-
sas City to lead the AFC West.
That sort of record doesn't usually
prompt a coach to shuffle players, but
Reeves did not rule out such changes on
the offensive line.
"I think our best lineup is in the ball-
gameright now," Reeves said. But, "I'm
going to give them an honest chance to
see if they can do it. Then you have to

look at making changes. And I'm cer-
tainly reaching close to that point, where
over period of time a guy's got to show
he can get the job done."
Reeves gave the offensive line a grade
of 75-80 percent for its play so far this
season. But, he said a championship-
quality team has to play at 85-90 percent
to compete at that level.
The NFL trading deadline passed Tues-
day with no announcements from the
Broncos. Denver does have a spot open
onits roster, with the waiving of running
back Jeff Alexander Tuesday.
Barring the addition of a free agent,
the players who could be moved up on
the offensive line depth chart include
veteran Dave Widell (utility) and rookies
Chuck Johnson (tackle) and Bob Meeks
(center). Tackles Jim Johnson and Mark
Flythe, converted from defensive end,
are on the practice squad.
"If the coaches feel changes need to
be made," Elway said, "I'm sure they'll
make them."


Chiefs' tough defense


concerns Cowboys


IRVING, Texas (AP) - Jimmy Johnson
has seen the Kansas City Chiefs on vide-
otape and he's concerned.
"Kansas City has one of the top teams
in the league," the Dallas Cowboys
coach said on Tuesday. "They are one of
the most physical teams in the NFL."
Johnson was at Valley Ranch and was
unhappy about what is ahead for the
Cowboys.
"I'm not in a very good humor,"
Johnson said. "I've been watching Kan-
sas City tapes."
Johnson saw the Chiefs impressively
defeat the Philadelphia Eagles 24-17, a
team that throttled the Dallas Cowboys
31-7 only two weeks ago.
"Kansas City did things we wanted to
do against Philadelphia," Johnson said.
"Kansas City did well in every depart-
ment and they even blocked a field goal.
We had hoped we would have done
something like that ourselves."
Oddsmakers rated the Cowboys early
four-point favorites over the Chiefs. Dallas
has won nine-consecutive home games.
Johnson said the Cowboys (4-1) will
have to play well in all three phases,
offense, defense and special teams when
Kansas City (4-2) comes calling at noon
Sunday in Texas Stadium.


He lost his top special teams player,
Bill Bates, for the seasonbecause of torn
ligaments suffered in a 27-0 victory over
Seattle. Ken Norton will take Bates' place
as the middle linebacker in the nickel
pass defense packages.
"Bates meant a lot to this team be-
cause of his leadership," Johnson said.
"He was a great example on the field.
We'll also miss him a lot on the special
teams."
Another spot on the roster opened up
when the Cowboys traded wide receiver
Alexander Wright, the NFL's fastest man,
to the Los Angeles Raiders for future
middle round considerations. The Cow-
boys will get a fourth-round pick but it
could move up to a third depending on
Wright's playing time.
Johnson admitted the Cowboys made
a mistake in drafting Wright in the sec-
ond round in 1990.
"He didn't develop as fast as we
wanted," Johnson said. "We had to go
on about our business. We didn't get
what we paid for because we wasted a
couple of years."
Wright had blazing speed but his hands
didn't always pull down the football.
Wright couldn't beat out Kelvin Martin,
who has average speed but great hands.

Don Shula 'feeling good' E

Dolphins only unbeaten team sr
left after season's sixth week Miami
Al. Buffalo


AMERICAN CONFERENCE


MIAMI (AP) - Twenty years ago, Don Shula be-
came the only NFL coach to lead his team to an
undefeated season. Now he's the only coach with a
chance to do it in 1992.
The Miami Dolphins are 5-0. Every other team has
at least one loss.
"That's a good feeling," Shula said Monday. "No
question about it."
When Miami missed the playoffs five of the past six
years, Shula - to his credit - never suggested his
mediocre teams were better than their record. So he's
not inclined to concede the reverse as being the case
now.
"You measure a team by its record," Shula said.
Linebacker David Griggs agreed.
"Are we as good as our record? Of course we are,"
Griggs said.
"That's a silly question. I mean, look around. I see a
lot of talent on this team," Griggs added.
Talent, yes, but also a habit of taking games to the
wire. Sunday's 21-17 victory over Atlanta marked the
third time Miami has trailed in the fourth quarter before
rallying.
"I'll bet you a dinner that if you take the years when
the Giants or the Bills or the 49ers went to the Super
Bowl, you'll find a few games where they came from
behind," Griggs said.
"It's a good sign. You're going to have to win games
like that. The competition is so even, you can't go out
and dominate like you could 20 years ago."
Still, narrow escapes taint Miami as something less
than a powerhouse.
"We've been in a lot of close games," quarterback
Dan Marino acknowledged. "Hopefully we'll get some
easy ones down the line."
The easiest win thus far has been a shocking 37-10
victory at Buffalo Oct. 4. Miami also'survived in two
other hostile settings against mediocre teams - Cleve-
land and Seattle.
The Buffalo win was impressive, but it should also
be noted that all but one of Miami's victims are under

.500 and in last place in their divisions.
Remarkably, Miami leads the two-time defending
conference champion Bills by two games in the AFC
East standings. Buffalo lost Sunday to the Raiders in
Los Angeles.
"That was a good evening," Shula said with a smile,
"to watch television and see that happening on the West
Coast."
He wantts a cushion in the standings because though
the Dolphins are unbeaten, they're hardly unbeatable.
The running game ranks 17th in the NFL, the defense
16th, the pass defense 23rd. A juggernaut? Not.
"We realize," Shula said, "that we're just five
games into the season."

Mike Tyson (center) leaves an Indianapolis courtroom Jan. 30 with long-
time friend Camille Ewald (right). Now in jail after being convicted of rape,
Tyson spends time reading books about black history and issues.


Jailed Tyson 'doing great'


PLAINFIELD, Ind. (AP) - The man-
who invited Mike Tyson to make his
fateful journey to Indianapolis last year
said the former heavyweight boxing
champion is doing great in prison.
"He understands what he has to do.
He's making the best of the opportunity
to find himself as an individual, not as
Mike Tyson the boxer," said Rev.
Charles Williams.
It was Williams who invited Tyson
to Indiana in July, 1991 to attend Indi-
ana Black Expo, which Williams heads.
While there, Tyson raped a contestant
in the Miss Black America pageant.
Now, six months after being sen-
tenced forrape, Tyson has settled into a
routine of work and reading at the Indi-


ana Youth Center, a pattern broken
only by the stream of visitors.
Tyson spends much of his time when
he's notworkingintheprison'srecrea-
tion area reading books about black
history and issues. "He's never had the
time to read," said Williams.
He said Tyson's reading list includes
books by black poet Maya Angelou;
Frances Cress-Welsing, who writes about
the origins of racism; and Arthur Tho-
mas, who writes about black leaders.
"I don't see any rebellion in him,"
Williams said. "I think he has used this
as an opportunity to look within him-
self and toward the future - without a
crowd of advisers - to make some
definite decisions."

es, Huskies share


college football's top spot


NEW YORK (AP) - Miami and Wash-
ington, last year's co-national champi-
ons, share the No. 1 spot again in this
week's college football polls.
Washington edged Miami by one point
in Sunday's Associated Press writers'
poll, while the Hurricanes led the Hus-
kies by one point in the USA Today-
CNN coaches' survey.
Washington (5-0) led both polls by a
comfortable margin last week, but Mi-
ami (5-0) gained ground by beating Penn
State 17-14 Saturday. It was the Hurri-
canes' second consecutive victory over a
Top 10 opponent, following a 19-16 win
over Florida State the previous week.
Washington's 35-16 victory over Cali-
fornia was the Huskies' third straight
over a ranked team, but none of those
opponents is currently in the AP Top 10.
Nebraska is 11th, Southern Cal is 18th
and California, which was 24th last week,
dropped out of the Top 25 this week.
Miami and Washington each received
30 1/2 first-place votes in the AP poll.
But the Huskies got one more point (1,517
1/2-1,516 1/2) because one voter listed
Alabama first, Washington second and
Miami third. Anothervoter split his first-
place vote between Washington and
Miami.
In USA Today-CNN, Miami outpol-
led Washington by two first-place votes
(31-29) and one point (1,467-1,466).
The results are the opposite of last
year's final polls, when Miami was No. 1
in AP and Washington was No. 1 in USA
Today-CNN.
Washington coach Don James said
Sunday that he was "pleased we're still
recognized as No. 1 in the AP poll." But,
he added,
"I don't think coaches get as caught


up in the polls as other people do. I think
all this stuff will sort itself out in time."
Miami coach Dennis Erickson agreed.
"There will always be a comparison
until one of us loses," he said. "The
players can't worry about this.... There's
nothing we can do but play well and win
games. The rest is in the hands of others."
The one-point margin in the AP poll
isn't the closest ever for No. 1. There
have been two ties for first, in 1939 and
1941. On Nov. 27, 1939, Texas A&M
and Southern Cal tied with 939 points
each. On Oct. 27, 1941, Minnesota and
Texas shared first place with 1,161 points
apiece.
The closest final AP poll was last
year's four-point difference between
Miami and Washington.
Miami, which has the nation's longest
winning streak (23), plays Texas Chris-
tian next Saturday at the Orange Bowl.
Washington, which has won 19 in arow,
visits Oregon.
Michigan remained third in this week's
AP poll. Rounding out the Top 10 are
Alabama, Texas A&M, Florida State,
Colorado, Stanford, Penn State and
Georgia.
Nebraska is 11th, followed by Notre
Dame, Tennessee, Syracuse, Mississippi
State, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Southern
Cal, Clemson, Boston College, North
Carolina State, Washington State, Flor-
ida, West Virginia and Kansas.
Tennessee plunged nine notches to
No. 13 after losing to Arkansas 25-24,
and Virginia dropped seven spots to No.
17 after falling to Clemson 29-28.
Washington State, West Virginia and
Kansas moved into the Top 25, while
Oklahoma, UCLA, Ohio State and Cali-
fornia dropped out.

JAYS AND BRAVES, OH MY!


miracle
ATLANTA (AP) - There were three outs left in the
Atlanta Braves' season. The tomahawks were missing
the targets. Things were falling apart.
But in a matter of minutes, these probable losers
were World Series-bound for the second year in arow.
S"Even though we were down to our last three outs,
we thought we could win," Terry Pendleton said.


A double by Pendleton and an error by Pittsburgh
Pirates second baseman Jose Lind to start the ninth
inning gave life to the Braves Wednesday night. A
walk, a sacrifice fly by Ron Gant, another walk and a
popout left the score 2-1 with just one out left.
At the plate for the Braves was pinch-hitter Fran-
cisco Cabrera.
Who is Francisco Cabrera?
He's now the Braves' hero as his bases-loaded single
brought in the tying and winning runs in a 3-2victory in
the seventh game of the NL Championship Series. Sid
Bream just managed to slide around Mike LaValliere's
tag.
"This is a gift of God to the Atlanta Braves," Otis
Nixon said. "It don't get no better."
It seems impossible to pick where to begin.
Just a few days ago, the pennant was sealed for
Atlanta. But consecutive meltdowns by Braves starters
Steve Avery and Tom Glavine pushed the Braves to the
edge.
Cabrera pulled them back and pushed the Pirates
over, too.
"I guess we were little lucky," winning pitcher Jeff
Reardon said, "but we played good also."
Pittsburgh, though, had played better.


The Pirates outpitched the Braves and outhit them.
If anybody deserved to go to the World Series, it was
Pittsburgh, a team on the verge of breakup because of
free agency.
Almost no one comes back from 2-0 deficits in the
ninth. Maybe in June and July, when the opponents are
the Dodgers and the Phillies, but not in October, when
all of baseball is watching. Not against a pitcher like
Doug Drabek, who took a five-hitter into the ninth.
"It was our last chance," Atlanta manager Bobby
Cox said.
"I've never been part of something that went from
down there to up here so quick," Ron Gant said. "I was
hyperventilating. I thought I was going to have a heart
attack. I never dreamed of anything like this."
It was Gant's sacrifice fly that closed the Braves
within arun. But afterBrian Hunterpoppedout, leaving
the bases loaded with one out to go, it looked like close
was all Atlanta would get this time.
In Pittsburgh's dugout, manager Jim Leyland's heart
was pounding. But Cabrera had some pounding to do of
his own.
"I tell you what, when we had bases loaded and
Ronnie's fly drove in that one run, there was still some
doubt," Bream said.


Maldonado, Carter lead

Toronto to World Series


Toronto pitcher Juan Guzman pitches irtthe first inning of the Blue Jays' 9-2
victory over Oakland Wednesday afternoon.


TORONTO (AP) - Candy Maldonado
is the guy the Toronto Blue Jays hope can
do it. Joe Carter is the guy they count on
to do it. On Wednesday, both did it in the
deciding game of the American League
playoffs.
Carter, the Jays' No. 3 hitter, cracked
a 405-foot home run to left and Maldo-
nado, the quietly efficient left fielder,
mashed a 424-footer to center, getting
Toronto off to a running start and ac-
counting for five of their first six runs in
a 9-2 victory over Oakland Thursday to
give the Blue Jays the playoffs 4-2.
Add in a 3 for 5 performance by
Roberto Alomar, the second baseman
who was selected most valuable player
of the series, and Juan Guzman had all
the support he needed. The fireballer
from the Dominican Republic threw seven
innings of five-hit ball, giving up onerun
and winning his second victory of the
series.
Carter, Toronto's workhorse all year as
he hit 34 homers and drove in 119 runs,
started it with a two-run homer in the
first.
"In a game like this, the first inning is
very important," Carter said. "Juan shut
them down and I hit the home run after
Rickey (Henderson) made the error. Once
we took the lead, the pressure Was on


them."
Then came Maldonado with a three-
run shot in the third that made it 6-0.
"I got a fastball right over the plate; it
was the greatest feeling," Maldonado
said between dousings of champagne in
the locker room. "I was looking for
something' up and got a great pitch to
hit."
The team that scored first had won
each of the first five games, and the Jays
knew that.
"We came in with the ideaif we could
get ahead, we could put the pressure on
them," Maldonado said.
The Blue Jays have been suffering
their own kind of pressure. Three times
they have won the AL East title and three
times failed to advance to the World
Series.
"It's a shame, but there will always be
pressure on us until we reach the next
plateau," Carter said. "We don't only
want to get to the World Series, we want
to win there."
The Toronto rightfielder said it didn't
really matter whether the Jays faced At-
lanta or Pittsburgh.
"This team matches up very well against
either ball club. We are not aone-or two-
man team. We've got 8, 9, 10, 11 guys
who can beat you any particular day."


Braves get 2nd chance against Jack Morris

AP
Jack Morris - a Twins pitcher in 1991 - celebrates in Minnesota after the Twins defeated the
Braves in the World Series. Saturday night, the Blue Jays and Braves will be together in Atlanta fo
1 of the 1992 World Series. Morris will almost certainly start for Toronto, while it might take a w
Atlanta to decide its pitching plans.


TORONTO (AP) - So we're back to where it all
ended in 10 amazing innings last October, with Jack
y' Morris about to face the Atlanta Braves in the World
L*. Series.
Less than two hours after the Toronto Blue Jays won
the AL pennant by beating Oakland 9-2 Wednesday,
Morris was in the bullpen at the nearly empty SkyDome,
tuning up for his next start.
A few hours later, Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium
was in a frenzy as the Braves rallied for three runs in the
S ninth inning to stun Pittsburgh 3-2 in Game 7.
On Saturday night, the Blue Jays and Braves will be
Together in Atlanta for Game 1. Morris will almost
certainly start for Toronto, while it might take a while
for Atlanta to decide its pitching plans.
The Braves begin the series looking to atone for last
year's near miss. They blew their big chance in Game 7
at the Metrodome on Lonnie Smith's baserunning blun-

Howard holds first transition seminar


HOWARD AFB (24th WG/PA) - In 1991, the U. S.
Air Force began reducing its size by more than 17
percent over a five-year period.
"This means that many Air Force personnel and
their families have or will face separation in this, the
largest downsizing in the history of the all-volunteer
force," Gregory Galloway, Howard Family Support
Center director, said. "These members and their fami-
lies now face critical crossroads in their lives."
To help separating members, the Howard Transition
Assistance Program will conduct its first three-day
seminar Wednesday - Oct. 23, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at
the Howard Officers' Club.
"The seminar is designed to help individuals and
families ease the transition from a formerly secure and
mobile lifestyle to the challenges of the civilian com-
munity as comfortably and confidently as possible,"
Avis Pine, transition assistant specialist, said. "Partici-
pants will discover how to translate their military
career into civilian fields, enhance marketability,


strengthen job finding skills and simultaneously bal-
ance their personal and family life."
The seminar covers personal appraisal, setting goals,
communication skills, family issues, legal and financial
planning, an overview of veterans' benefits and pro-
grams as well as provide hands-on assistance in re-
searching companies, preparing winning employment
applications, effective resumes and successful inter-
view skills.
"A variety of speakers from the community will
offer their perspective, share their experiences and
motivate the audience into making informed and en-
lightened decisions about the choices they will face as
they enter into their new lifestyles," explained Pine,
who coordinated the three-day seminar.
"The transition assistance program here offers qual-
ity education and guidance to separating members and
their families," she said. "We want to ensure that they
are well-equipped to compete in the civilian commu-
nity. As the civilian sector becomes more competitive,


military experience and training must be maximized to
ensure optimum utilization of these valuable resources."
The backbone of the Air Force Transition Assis-
tance Program in the states is the three-day seminar
directly supported by the departments of Labor and
Veterans Affairs, Pine said.
Since Panamais too remote for direct representation
of these agencies, local veterans groups have volun-
teered their skills and experiences to support fellow
veterans and this program.
"With the participation and knowledge of local
experts as well as the support of the command, the
transition assistance program will now begin produc-
ing total quality seminar that parallels what is offered
in the states," Pine said.
SSeparating and retiring military members and their
families are encouraged to attend this seminar and
make use of transition assistance as they plan for the
next phase in their lives. To register, call 284-4347/
3865.

Respiratory illness preventable


through simple precautions


QUARRY HEIGHTS, Panama (Tropic Times) -
Histoplasmosis is respiratory illness found in Panama
that the U.S. Southern Command Surgeon feels is
preventable.
Histo, as it's called, is a relatively mild flu-like
illness which generally last a few days, said the Com-
mand Surgeon, Col. Ernest Sutton.
The colonel said sometimes the infection can last
- weeks or a month. "However, there are cases of linger-
ing infections and medical treatment is available," he
said. It is only when the spores spread from the lungs to
the rest of the body, less than 1 percent of the cases, that
complications may occur. Those most susceptible to
this type of infection are the very young, the elderly and
those whose immune systems are depressed. Therefore,
most cases of histo require little or no treatment and
most patients recover through natural defenses, he said.
Histoplasmosis is caused by the fungus Histoplasma


Capsulatum, an extremely simple form of plant life, he
said. This organism grows well in soil mixed with bird
or bat droppings. It is the high nutrient content of these
droppings that provides an excellent growth medium. It
can also be found in droppings not in contact with soil.
The spores of histo are extremely small and float in the
air when stirred up with dust, he said.
When inhaled, the fungus can get down into the
lungs where it eventually reaches the air sacs and
multiplies, he said.
"Unless the spore invasion is enormous in quantity,
however, the body's natural defenses are normally
sufficient to fight off the infection without damage to
the lungs," Sutton said.
"In the majority of cases, little harm is done to the
patient. Many patients feel no symptoms at all, while
others may suffer a brief and relatively mild flu-like ill-
ness."


On the basis of skin testing, it is estimated 30 million
people have been infected and about a half million more
become infected each year, he said.
Most cases involve cave explorers and those in-
volved in cleaning areas that served as bird or bat roosts
and have poor ventilation. In these situations the people
disturbed the area resulting in breathing in the dust
containing the fungus spores. "Because of the large bird
and bat population here, it is believed that exposure can
also occur almost anywhere," Sutton said.
Sutton offers the following tips to help prevent the
infection:
*Avoid caves and areas of poor ventilation that have
several years accumulation of bird or bat droppings.
*Avoid bivouacs in areas around large trees and
caves which might house bird or bat populations.
*Keep buildings, especially attics, free of birds or
bats and as dry and clean as possible. When sweeping
them out, wet down the area with water to prevent dust.
*Consult the Directorate of Engineering and Hous-
ing before cleaning areas with large accumulations of
bat droppings.
For more information on histoplasmosis, contact

Medical Activity, Panama at 285-5643.

Chevy Cavalier RS


Compact-size convertible offers comfort


by Zane Binder
King Features Syndicate
One of the more reasonably priced American con-
vertibles is Chevrolet's Cavalier RS Convertible, a
variant of General Motor's bread-and-butter economy
car. Though designed in the mid-1970s, in most aspects
it's aged well; at a base price of $15,395, the Cavalier
Convertible offers decent value. But be aware, just as
with any soft-top you pay price in noise and handling,
weight, reduced side and rear visibility, and even air
leaks. But with convertible sales skyrocketing, it's
obvious many feel the trade-offs are worthwhile.
Inside, the Z24 carries four in relative comfort. The
twin front cloth buckets are wide and extremely com-
fortable, being designed with real, non-ideally shaped
humans in mind. They're extremely soft and on long
trips won't equal the fatigue-fighting qualities of more


supportive designs, but they're satisfactory. In the rear,
the bench holds two adults for moderate trips, a surprise
because of the car's compact size and space-consuming
convertible top. The trunk, too, is decent size; taken
together it means this car has a practical side. Turning
to the manual convertible top, putting it up and down is
relatively easy. It takes a few minutes to learn, but
unlike many cars, doesn't present a real problem.
Looking forward from the driver's seat, the RS Con-
vertible's dash contains abundant hand-dial analog gauges.
They're jammed together and too small, but it's better
than not having them at all. Storage nooks and crannies
abound, and there's even an innovative but strangely
designed cupholder. Standard power steering aids the
Cavalier's handling; power door locks, a no-cost option
automatically engage as you drive away. Unfortu-
nately, they don't unlock when you shut off the
engine, a real annoyance. Turning to safety, four-wheel


power disc anti-lock brakes are standard, areal plus on
this relatively inexpensive car, air bags, unfortunately,
aren't available. A rear window defogger is a $170
option.
As mentioned above, one of the compromises to be
endured in living with a convertible is handling. Like
almost every vehicle without a permanent top, "below
average" best describes it. Lack of body stiffness and
rigidity - most people are unaware tops are stress-
bearing members - is the culprit here. Despite the Z51
performance handling package ($224), corners can be
negotiated only at mundane speeds - and with lots of
body lean. The tires, Goodyear GA all-weather-types,
don't help. They're too small and not sticky enough,
often howling in protest. The turning circle on this
2,757-pound front-driver, at just 37 feet, is slightly
below par for the class.
The RS Cavalier's ride, the opposite side of the
handling equation, is soft, offering additional evidence
the Z51 package is strongly biased toward comfort
rather than sport. Neither large bumps nor potholes are
taken well, and it's fairly easy to get the suspension to
"bottom." When this occurs, the lack of body stiffness
causes numerous squeaks and rattles to appear through-
out the vehicle; that's the way things are with ragtops.
The test CavalierRS was equipped with the optional
$610 3.1 liter 140 HP V6 (a 2.2 liter four is standard).
This two valve per cylinder, old but well-proven en-
gine, is one of GM's best. It provides good low-end
torque, fine economy, decent smoothness and is rea-
sonably quiet. Zero to 60 times averaged 8.9 seconds
with the light clutch and "clunky," but satisfactory
five-speed, more than a full second better than the
factory claim. Fuel economy on the 268-mile test trip
was observed at 18 city and 27 highway (EPA 19/28),
fine real-world figures for the class.
Overall, despite shortcomings, the Cavalier convert-
ible has lots of appeal. Its price, comfort level - much
better than semi-competitors such as the Honda Prel-
ude, Ford Tempo, Acura Intega, and Nissan 240SX -
and good looks make it attractive. It's not sophisticated,
but it's a decent top-down value.


Pasta, or what used to be called macaroni (we
called it macs) has become an important staple in the
non-Italian pantry. Spaghettini, tortellini, stellini and
lots of other "ini" words have been embraced by the
English language. And thousands ofrecipes are being
developed to meet consumers' demands for variety.
Today we have recipe that shows pasta's interna-
tional appeal. We dress it with Danish Blue cheese for
distinctive flavor. We used tortellini, the little hat-
shaped pasta filled with meat, seafood or cheese, but


any shell or tubular-shape will do. If serving the dish
hot, why not spaghetti, linguine or noodles?
A few words about the cheese that gives this dish
zing. Danish Blue is a white-yellowish cheese with
greenish blue veins and a distinctively tangy, sharp
flavor. It can be sliced, crumbled or spread. Blue
Castello is a light yellow, triple cream with blue veins.
It's tangy, aromatic and extremely creamy. It can be
sliced or spread, but does not crumble well because of
its creaminess.
This dish can be chilled and served as a salad. Just
before serving, drizzle a small amount of cold water
over the pasta to moisten and toss again.

Tortellini with Danish Blue cheese
4 ozs. Danish Blue cheese, crumbled, or Danish Blue
Castello
1 (12 oz.) package fresh meat tortellini
1/4 cup virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon Juice
Fresh ground black pepper to taste


Salt to taste
2 tablespoons water
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 tablespoon marinated sun dried tomatoes, drained
and chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 2 tablespoons dried
parsley sprigs

Crumble Danish Blue cheese to make one cup; set
aside. Cook tortellini in boiling water according to
package directions, until al dente. drain well and turn
into serving bowl. Whisk together oil, lemon juice,
pepper, salt and water. Add garlic, dried tomatoes,
basil and two tablespoons reserved Danish Blue cheese
and whisk. Pour dressing and remaining cheese over
tortellini. Gently toss to mix thoroughly. Serve at
once. The Chopping Block recipe by Philomena
Corradeno.

the gluing process for making a guitar base.


FORT CLAYTON (USARSO PAO) -
To buy a guitar that puts out a perfect C
flat, it usually
costs around a
G-Note. But, *. .
the Fort Clay- -c f
ton Arts and
Crafts Center
can teach gui- L"
tar enthusiasts
to build their .
own instrument
for as little as
$150.
It takes 70 to ,-
80 hours to
make a guitar,
but students get
a quality, great
sounding gui-
tar, said LaRue
Ave-Lalle-
mant, an in-
structor at the
center.
"A $200 or
$300 dollar
plywood guita
you buy in a Ave-Lallemant Inspect
store doesn't
compare in quality or sound to ours. A
guitar that costs under $1,000 is either
heavy on treble or bass," Ave-Lallemant
said. "Ours are clear on bass and treble."
The students use a combination of
rosewood, Alaskan spruce and ligna vi-
tae. The ligna vitae comes from railroad
ties at the bottom of Gatun Lake, Ave-
Lallemant said.
Each type of wood has a different pur-
pose, Ave-Lallemant said.
The rosewood is for the back of the


Is


guitar and reflects the sound. The spruce
is for the face because it is light, very
strong and creates good sound by com-
plementing steel
strings. The
ligna vitae is for
the neck be-
cause it is strong
as well as beau-
tiful, holds the
fret board nicely
and will serve
as a memento of
Panama, he
1 said.
The center has
all the materi-
als, moldings
- - and instructors
ll available to
r assist students.
. "You don't
need to know
how to play a
guitar to build
one," Ave-Lal-
lemant said.
Students can
Sa finished product. start with as
little as $40 and
little motivation. Students can then pay
for what they need as they go along, he
said.
The center usually holds classes on
Thursday and students can make ap-
pointments by calling 287-5957. After
the first class, students can begin work-
ing with little instruction, Ave-Lallemant
said.
"You can come here for two or three
hours a day and it will be done in no
time," he said.


Ave-Lallemant Inspects the neck-piece of a guitar before
placing it for gluing.

Theatre Guild kicks off new play season


by Maureen Sampson
Tropic Times Theater Critic
ANCON (Tropic Times) - The new local theater
season kicks off with the Theatre Guild of Ancon's
production of "Murder at the Howard Johnson's," writ-
ten by Ron Clark and Sam Bobrick.
Audience members can once again look forward to
an evening of socializing, drinking and being enter-
tained by live actors on astagejust afew feet from them.
"Murder" is directed by Armando Him, who di-
rected "Butterflies are Free" for the Guild last season.
This play is centered around a rather bizarre love
triangle.
Carol Forbes, who last appeared in the Guild's per-
formance of "Steel Magnolias," portrays Arleen, a
pampered wife reaching middle age who needs some


excitement in her life.
Carlos Williams, who has been involved in isthmian
theater for 24 years, plays the part of Mitchell, Arleen's
lover.
Mitchell is a tacky-dressing dentist and a self-pro-
claimed ladies man.
Bill Forbes completes the triangle as Arleen's hus-
band, a devoted but feeble minded used-car salesman
whose idea of a romantic dinner is fried chicken and
beer.
The small cast works well together.
All players bring their role to life. Probably most
convincing is Bill Forbes' portrayal of Paul as a mo-
ronic, yet loveable husband.
His'line deliveries and physical gestures are apropos
of a man who thinks having sex is a lot like watching
baseball.


The play flows well. Althoughit is a little slow at the
beginning, the actors compensate as the show pro-
gresses.
Each act brought more laughs and the characters
became more believable. These actors obviously en-
joy performing together.
The play has much visual as well as verbal humor.
The set, which looks like your typical HOJO room, is
realistic and functional. One of the funniest scenes is
when Paul and Mitchell are chasing each other on the
window ledge.
But who gets murdered?
You'll have to see the play for.yourself to find out.
"Murder at the Howard Johnson's" runs Thursday through
Oct. 24.
For information on reservations, call the Theatre
Guild of Ancon at 252-6786.

Tropic Times Hemisphere 3 Widespread protests mark Columbus Day MIAMI (Reuters) -Exactly 500 years after Christopher Columbus first made footprints in the sand of the New World, angry Indians throughout the hemisphere marched and splashed red paint on statues of the explorer to protest the beginning of European domination. While New York and Chicago held traditional Columbus Day parades with fanfare and floats, the anniversary was O dominated by bitter Indian protests which included large demonstrations in Bolivia I and others in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Chile, Peru and some U.S. cities. But much of the world yawned at the holiday, ignoring the voyage in which Columbus claimed all of the hemisphere for Spain. Even Columbus' own hometown of Genoa, Italy, shunned any celebrations. Festivities for the city's favorite son were cancelled after devastating floods last month. Dozens of Indian groups throughout Latin America seized the anniversary to show their disgust for the explorer's APLrPho "discovery" of native peoples.
