For the insects, it's what's right: a warm winter and a warm, wet spring that made survival possible for more of them.

BY ELIZABETH NEUS The Cincinnati Enquirer Insects are doing more than bugging people in Greater Cincinnati. They're stinging. At Bethesda Hospital's emergency rooms in Warren County and Montgomery, for example, the number of sting cases has almost doubled, from 232 in 1990 to 434 so far this year, said spokeswoman Lisa Zimmer.

He also pleaded guilty to furnishing beer or intoxicating liquor to a 16-year-old boy March 1, 1989. Scott Croswell, Cooley's lawyer, said his client never had sexual intercourse with the boys.

'"'r General tells doomsday plot THE WASHINGTON POST MOSCOW The new Soviet defense minister said in an interview published Thursday that he-had been prepared to bomb the Kremlin, with himself in it, if leaders of last month's coup ordered an attack on Russian President Boris Yeltsin, Gen. Yevgeny Shaposhnikov also said that the head of a key para-troop unit was ready to shoot himself rather than carry out orders to storm Yeltsin's Russian parliament building. In an interview with the newspaper Nezavisimaya Gazeta, former air force chief Shaposhnikov recounted the fear and response of the Soviet general staff to then-Defense Minister Dmitri Yazov's order to declare a state of emergency and bring troops into Moscow. Many of the generals opposed the coup, Shaposhnikov said, but none dared air their opposition. Late Aug. 20, when an attack on Yeltsin was expected, Shaposhnikov called Gen. Pavel Grachev, head of a paratroop unit. "They can go to hell, I won't give the orders," Grachev told Shaposhnikov. . "So what will you do?" "I'll shoot myself." At that point, Shaposhnikov said, he hatched the plan to go to the Kremlin if an attack was ordered and, if he had not returned or telephoned within 10 minutes, have his bombers attack. "The bombers will fly, and nothing will be left of us," he said. But the coup unraveled before Yeltsin could be attacked. The Rev. George Cooley leans over to kiss his mother after his sentencing Thursday in Hamilton County Priest Victims recount suffering BY CHRIS GRAVES The Cincinnati Enquirer The Rev. George Cooley was sent to jail Thursday for sexually abusing boys, but the Catholic priest's day of reckoning seemed to leave no one familiar with his case at peace. In court, Cooley's shattered boyhood was painted for public display. His lawyer said Cooley had no close parental contact, suffered strictness to the point of abuse and was sexually molested. Two now-grown men stood in the crowded Hamilton County Municipal courtroom and struggled to keep their composure as they recounted the horror of being molested by their priest when they were children at a summer camp. Cooley's sisters and niece choked back tears as they admitted he needed to be punished but told of the unselfish life he has led. Judge Albert Mestemaker a Roman Catholic spoke of his personal anguish in determining Cooley's sentence. "The thought of mistrusting a . priest is foreign to my makeup," the judge said. "That, in my opinion, is what makes this a more heinous crime than any other sex-abuse case involving children that I've had as a judge." Mestemaker then sentenced the 43-year-old Cooley, 43, to serve three months in the Hamilton County Justice Center, placed him on five years of highly supervised probation and fined him $4,000 for the sexual molestation of four boys in late 1983 and 1984, while Cool- Is Four sections 151st year, No. 157 Copyright, 1991 The Cincinnati Enquirer NationWorld Nation A-6-7 World A-7-8 Healthscience A-9, 12 n Sports Digest D-3 Baseball D-4-5 Classified D-7-15 Q Business NYSE B-7 NASDAQ, Amex B-8 Mutual funds................

The Road to College: Educational Progress by Race and Ethnicity, released Thursday by the College Board and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, predicted: Non-white and Hispanic student population will increase from 10.4 million in 1985-86 to 13.7 million in 1994-95. Such pupils will constitute 34 of public elementary and secondary school enrollment by 1994-95, up from 29 in 1985-86. White enrollment will climb 5, from 25.8 million to 27 million, and their share of the student population will drop from 71 in 1985-86 to 66 in 1994-95. By 1994, non-whites and Hispanics will make up a majority of high school graduates in California and Mississippi. That's already the case in Hawaii, New -Mexico and the District of Columbia. Minority enrollment in Cincinnati Public Schools is 63. While the report contained few surprises, its sponsors said it underscored the urgency for more effective minority dropout prevention programs and generous financial aid programs.
