Mitchell pushes for Thomas debate WASHINGTON: Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, D-Maine, said Monday he still hoped that floor debate could begin this week on the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, despite calls from opponents to put off consideration a week. Under Senate rules, debate on Thomas' nomination cannot begin until 48 hours after the committee's report is printed. Debate could begin Thursday if the report is distributed today. The Senate is expected to begin a one-week recess Friday, so any delay would postpone the vote until at least Oct. 16. Commission's budget, term slashed WASHINGTON: The House fired a warning shot Monday at the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, chopping its budget and limiting its life in a bipartisan show of displeasure with the independent agency and its record of monitoring civil rights enforcement efforts. Rejecting President Bush's request for $10 million a year, the House placed a $6 million cap on the commission's yearly spending, a $1.5 million annual cut. House members also snubbed Bush's proposed 10-year agency reauthorization, reducing it to two years. Train plunges down mountainside PINECLIFFE, Colo.: A freight train struck a rock slide and jumped off its track Monday, sending its two lead locomotives plunging down a 500-foot mountainside and killing two crew members.

The derailment spilled diesel fuel into South Boulder Creek, started a fire that burned most of the day and blocked the track. Powell confirmed for 2nd term WASHINGTON: The Senate on Monday confirmed Gen. Colin Powell for a second term as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the nation's highest military post.

TV rivalry spoils Teaks' THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BERLIN A German TV channel's answer to a question that kept American viewers in suspense for months who killed Laura Palmer has infuriated a rival station. RTL Plus, a feisty cable channel, has been broadcasting Twin Peaks since Sept. 10. In a recent broadcast, the rival SAT 1 channel revealed that Laura Palmer's murderer was her own father, Leland Palmer, thus ruining the suspense. Furious RTL executives accused SAT 1 of breaking TV ethics. Just to make sure everyone got in on the act, the ZDF television network broadcast a tongue-in-cheek report on the brouhaha Friday night. New minister of Zaire vows independence ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES KINSHASA, Zaire: Opposition leader Etienne Tshisekedi vowed Monday that his new government would wrest control of Zaire from President Mobutu Sese Seko. "There will be only one prime minister. There will not be another in charge of the army or anything else," Tshisekedi said at his small villa in Kinshasa, the capital. "It's the people who are calling for Mobutu to leave, not me," he said. "I am not a dictator."

Also Monday, European Community nations meeting in Brussels postponed a decision on sending a multinational military force to quell the fighting in Croatia, which has killed more than 600 people in three months. Subic deadline undecided MANILA, Philippines: Philippine senators Monday debated the U.S. withdrawal from Subic Bay naval base but failed to agree on a timetable. The debate came a day after President Corazon Aquino admitted defeat on obtaining a new lease for the facility. Aquino had pledged to call a referendum to overturn the Senate's decision to close the base and end the 93-year U.S. military presence. But she backed off after legal experts said a referendum could not overturn the decision. Israel: U.S. to end criticism JERUSALEM: Defense Minister Moshe Arens said Monday that Israel expects the United States to back off criticism of Jewish settlements in lands captured in the 1967 Middle East war. Arens said that Israel had answered U.S. requests not to retaliate against Iraqi attacks during the gulf war and now expected its ally to realize how important the settlements were to Israel.
