A-2Weather, news in brief the Cincinnati enquirer Thursday, October 24, 1991 RMO IIMII I lll IL Today is Thursday, Oct. 24th, the 297th day of 1 991. There are 68 days left in the year. . f Ex-hostage meets wife, daughter ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES WIESBADEN, Germany He called her "sweetheart" and she called him "daddy." It was a tender moment when former hostage Jesse Turner met his 4-year-old daughter for the first time on Wednesday. Turner's hopes for such a meeting "kept him going" since he was kidnapped Jan. 24, 1987, in Lebanon by Muslim extremists, said his Lebanese-born wife, Badr Turner. Turner was turned over to Syrian officials Tuesday and flown to the U.S. Air Force hospital in Wiesbaden, where he is undergoing a series of physical and . psychological tests. Doctors at the military hospital said Turner, 44, is in better physical shape than many other returning hostages. And his wife and mother pronounced him healthy in mind and spirit. "It was as the first day when I met him," said his wife, who traveled from Boise, Idaho. Eight Western hostages remain in Lebanon, including four Americans and British envoy Terry Waite. The Associated PressThomas Kienzie Badr Turner, wife of released hostage Jesse Turner, and their 4-year-old daughter, Joanne, face reporters after their reunion at U.S. Air Force medical center in Wiesbaden, Germany. Montenegro could break with Serbia ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES TITOGRAD, Yugoslavia: Montenegro, Serbia's sole ally in its fierce war against breakaway Croatia, moved Wednesday toward a break with Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic when it refused to support a total mobilization demanded by the federal army. "There are decisive moments when one must decide whether to take the path of peace or the path of war," Montenegron President Momir Bulatovic said in an interview. "We have decided to proceed in a manner that will have less risks for . . . Montenegro." Two Koreas pledge to seek end to hostility SEOUL, South Korea: North and South Korea began drafting a historic rapprochement Wednesday following a pledge by the two nations' prime ministers to work toward ending four decades of confrontation. The announcement was the first sign of progress after meetings between South Korea's Prime Minister Chung Won-shik and North Korea's Premier Yon Hyong Mok. Commuters massacred in two train stations JOHANNESBURG, South Africa: Armed men rampaged through two train stations Wednesday, hacking screaming commuters to pieces in a massacre that left nine people dead and 36 injured, police said. The African National Congress and the rival Inkatha Freedom Party accused each other of being behind the killings in the black township of Soweto. Secret nuclear plant eludes U.N. inspectors UNITED NATIONS: U.N. weapons inspectors have yet to find a secret Iraqi nuclear plant north of Baghdad that a defecting Iraqi scientist told U.S. intelligence about, officials said Wednesday. The Iraqi government scientist turned himself in to U.S. troops in northern Iraq last spring. U.S. anti-drug efforts are flawed, auditors say WASHINGTON: U.S. anti-drug aid to Bolivia, Colombia and Peru is doing little to resolve those nations' economic dependence on the cocaine trade, State Department and congressional auditors said Wednesday. The auditors said they found little to show for hundreds of millions of dollars of U.S. aid provided since 1990 under President Bush's Andean drug strategy. More world news, Pages A-3-4. Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev has appealed for $10 billion to $11 billion in aid from around the world. O'Hare radar glitches reported CHICAGO: Radar equipment at O'Hare International Airport has been malfunctioning for months, losing track of planes and giving images of others in empty airspace, a federal official said Wednesday. Images appear and disappear usually for 15 to 20 seconds, distracting air-traffjc controllers but not long enough to jeopardize safety, said Jim Dermody, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration. Controllers also have reported seeing double images of airplanes, Dermody said. He said the problem wasn't to blame for three recent near-collisions. Parent payments adding up WASHINGTON: More than $500 million has been collected so far this year by withholding federal income tax refunds of parents delinquent in their child-support payments, officials said Wednesday. The amount is about $40 million more than was collected by this time last year, Department of Health and Human Services officials said. Arrow strikes man in head MIAMI: A man asleep in his living room awoke, sat up and was hit in the center of the forehead by an arrow that penetrated his brain but apparently caused no permanent damage, police said Wednesday. Arron Whittaker, 32, was in a recovery room after overnight surgery, Jackson Memorial Hospital reported. His condition was not yet classified. "This is definitely not some kid's toy," said Metro-Dade Police Detective Juan Capote. "It's a hunting point, with four edges. The doctor said it went an inch and a half into the brain, but he was conscious and talking through the whole thing." No arrests have been made. More national news, Pages A-5-8. Healthscience, Page A-10. Thomas makes swearing-in private affair ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES , WASHINGTON - Clarence Thomas became the nation's 106th Supreme Court justice Wednesday in a hastily arranged private ceremony that concluded the most extraordinary saga in the history of nominations to the high court. Thomas officially joined the court when, at 12:05 p.m. EDT, he swore to "do equal right to the poor and to the rich." Chief Justice William Rehnquist administered the judicial oath, while Thomas' wife, Virginia, held their family Bible. The event pre-empted a public courtroom ceremony set for Nov. 1, at which the new justice was to have taken the oath before an invited audience. The ceremonial inves-' titure will be held as scheduled but will be superfluous as a legal matter since Thomas will already have been a member of the court for more than a week. Court spokeswoman Toni House said he requested that the oath-taking be moved up so he and his staff could be put on the Supreme Court payroll immediately. Law professor Anita Hill kept her silence Wednesday and taught class as Thomas was sworn in. Hill, who told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Thomas sexually harassed her when they worked to-. gether a decade ago, wouldn't talk to a reporter at the University of . Oklahoma law school. She spent the afternoon teaching classes in contracts and commercial law. Weather Hot Line: 1 - For the latest weather forecasts, call v The Enquirer Weather Hot Line.

Kevorkian had called the sheriffs department and said there were two bodies in the cabin, WXYZ-TV reported.

Edwards: Hold your nose and vote NEW ORLEANS: In the first televised debate of the gubernatorial runoff campaign, former Gov.

Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, a Republican, predicted he would win the runoff with support from voters who backed Gov. Buddy Roemer, a Republican who came in third in Saturday's open primary.
