K A-6Nation THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Wednesday, October 9, 1991 ZJl Judge accepts $1 billion Exxon Valdez settlement n n oj or jl THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ANCHORAGE, Alaska A federal judge Tuesday approved a record $1 billion settlement and Exxon's guilty pleas to four misdemeanors to end state and federal litigation over the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. U.S. District Judge H. Russel Holland, who had rejected an earlier settlement offer in April, said he approved the deal because it included more money for restoring Prince William Sound. He said Exxon's efforts to pay some civil claims and its cleanup in the sound during the last three summers were the most important factors in his decision. Environmentalists and other critics said the penalties were insufficient to punish the giant company. Hundreds of lawsuits filed against Exxon by private individuals still are pending.

Sal. 9-5 Cash, Visa or Mastercard Copyright 1991 Lawmaker: I am no check-bouncer THE WASHINGTON POST Rep. Jim Moody, D-Wis., swears he's never bounced a check with the House bank, but he's been bounced from one media list to another despite frantic efforts to clear his name. Moody's spokesman, Marcus Kunian, got a call at 6 a.m. Friday after Milwaukee's WTMJ-TV reported that his boss was among the check-bouncers. Kunian called; the station corrected the item. Then, The Associated Press bureau in Washington, after what an editor called a "misunderstanding" with its Milwaukee office, added Moody to the dreaded bouncers list. Kunian called; AP corrected. On Monday, the Washington Post included Moody on a list of bouncers. The Post, which had been unable to reach Moody's office late Friday, noted that his name came from Knight News Service. When Kunian called Knight "to explain this thing for the sixty-zillionth time," an editor said the news service had fingered Moody from AP's since-corrected Friday list. "It was like a stampede," Kunian says. "(They) all did their own surveys, and they all used someone else's incorrect information that they had not checked out." To top it off, two Wisconsin reporters called Kunian to demand: "Why did you lie to me?" WASHINGTON Speaker Thomas Foley on Tuesday ordered House officials to stop helping members reverse city parking tickets, as special privileges for lawmakers continue to disappear at a rapid pace. The policy won't end dismissal of parking tickets issued to members of Congress because a city ordinance allows them to park almost anywhere when they are on "official business." . But Foley's action will force a member who receives a ticket to personally make the case that he or she was on House business. The sergeant-at-arms had been handling the job. It was the latest action taken by the House to do away with privileges that had been abused by some members. The House voted 390-8 last Thursday to close the members' bank by the end of the year and have the ethics committee investigate the bank's policy of covering members' bad checks without penalty. On Tuesday, Rep. Louis Stokes, D-Ohio, chairman of the ethics committee, said he wouldn't take part in the investigation because he wrote checks with insufficient funds in his House bank account. Stokes, of Cleveland, who revealed the deficiencies last week, said he hadn't violated House rules but told Foley it was important "to avert any appearance of impropriety." The House restaurant system also has begun a pay-as-you-eat program for members and groups they sponsor to prevent large delinquent tabs such as those accumulated by some 300 current and former members and their sponsored organizations. ! -X JL kI TTS'Ovq J.

The new study, written by Theodore Sarbin at the California-based defense center, reviewed about 100 books and academic journals and 130 espionage cases -j- THE BALTIMORE SUN WASHINGTON An internal Department of Defense study has found that homosexuals do not pose a greater risk to national security than heterosexuals, a finding researchers say should call intp question personnel policies that treat homosexual men and women as "a morally suspect class." The study, prepared by the Defense Personnel Security Research and Education Center, did not address the Pentagon's controversial policy prohibiting homosexuals from serving in the military, even though gay rights advocates said the work would be valuable in their campaign to repeal the ban. "It is essential for the public to see this report and decide for themselves whether it is sensible to continue to exclude lesbians and gay men from positions of service," Rep. Gerry Studds, D-Mass., said Tuesday. Studds, who has publicly acknowledged his homosexuality, began distributing the unclassified study, which has not yet been released officially by the Pentagon. The unofficial release occurred as about 30 members of the Baltimore and Washington chapters of a national gay veterans group yvyw- . - - . j J since 1958 and found "no basis for holding the belief that homosexuals as a group are less trustworthy or less patriotic than heterosexuals." As potential blackmail targets, homosexuals "are no different from heterosexuals who fear exposure of adultery or other illegal or moral lapses," the study said. "The review and analysis of the literature on homosexuality leads to one conclusion: Sexual orientation is unrelated to moral character," it added. "Both patriots and traitors are drawn from the class 'American citizen' and not specifically from the class 'heterosexual' or the class 'homosexual.'
