Wind / Business loses wall, windows Abandoned baby grabs jogger's wrist Many have offered to adopt boy found buried six hours after birth By The Associated Press £ PAS ADEN A, Calif. — As tears welled in her eyes, Azita Milanian gazed down at the peaceful baby boy she had pulled out of a mound of dirt and leaves, his weak fingers clutching her wrist. Dubbed "Baby Christian" by doting nurses, the newborn lay sleeping on his belly Monday in aSh incubator at Huntington Kjemorial Hospital. "He is a mountain angel, my angel," Milanian said, seeing the baby for the first time since handing him over to paramedics Saturday night. "He grabbed my wrist and stopped crying. It was very emotional." Azita Milanian jogger who discovered newborn While his condition has improved steadily, the 7-pound, 11- ounce boy had a body temperature of only 80 degrees when Milanian and her three black Labradors stumbled across him during a jog in the San Gabriel Mountains. Just 6 hours old, his tiny legs stuck out from the mound of leaves. His umbilical cord was still attached and his heart rate was slow. But the baby's fingers grasped Milanian's wrist as she cleared away the dirt. "He grabbed my wrist and stopped crying. It was very emotional," Mi- lanian recalled. "When he held my hand, I wanted to adopt him, but I'm not married and I wanted him to have a supportive family." Los Angeles County sheriffs deputies were still trying to identify the child's mother, Detective Kevin Elliott said. Deputies using bloodhounds have narrowed the search to a residential area. Doctors didn't find any drugs in the boy's system. FROM PAGE A1 "It didn't dissipate as it moved on," Ogren said. "You were far away from the storm, but the wind got there. That's one of those tricks Mother Nature throws us that we really can't prepare for." That wind tore limbs from trees throughout the city. Michael Fraser, city general services director, said some street crews were sent out during the night after Salina police reported limbs in roads. But the problems, as they were, were small, he said. "It wasn't real bad," Fraser said. "We were lucky." Delores Kohr, 2051 Raymond, felt lucky that the 40-foot sunburst locust in her front yard missed her house and the camper in the driveway when it was sheared by the wind about 10:30 p.m. Monday. "We hadn't gone to bed yet, and we heard it thunk," Kohr said. "It just missed the house." The tree, planted in about 1960, was 18 to 20 inches in diameter, Kohr said. She and her husband had been worried about it because it didn't leaf out this year like it normally did. "It was not overly healthy," Kohr said. "The wind broke it off just below the ground." The Kohrs spent Tuesday using a chain saw to chop the shade tree into logs small enough to be hauled away by city crews. Dave Rush, lot manager for the Long McArthur Ford used car lot at 833 E. Crawford, didn't feel so lucky. Sometime before 2 a.m., a gust of wind took out a whole wall of plate-glass windows — frames and T ANTITRUST LAWSUIT The baby was buried in leaves and grass, his face covered with a dirty blue blanket. Baby Christian continued to improve Tuesday, and his condition was upgraded from serious to fair. Dozens of people have offered to adopt the boy. Hospital spokeswoman Toni Miller said 20 people have called to offer money for his care, while others have donated baby clothes and blankets. During her visit, Milanian walked over to Dr. Ricardo Liberman, shook his hand and thanked him for saving the newborn's life. "They're calling me a hero, but you're the hero to bring these children to life again," she said. "What I went through that minute, you go through every day." Replied Liberman: "The baby's the hero." all — on the west side of the building that Long McArthur shares; with Jack Frost Communications and Commercial Signs. "It pushed it all in, the double doors and everything," Rush said. Two windows on the south side of the building also were blown out, and about 20 ceiling tiles were thrown to the floor. ., i "We had glass from the west side of our building stretched clear over to Conklin cars, and there was glass all over our cars," Rush said. ,,,; The rear window was blown out and paint was gouged on a used- Ford Explorer, Rush said, and three other cars were scratched; by flying glass. i "I spent four months remodeling this lot, and it hammered it,". Rush said. Rush, three of his employees and several people with Medina Construction spent most of Tues'', day boarding up the broken windows and clearing the lot of glass* but Rush said they didn't close tijej business. ,/•", "We refuse to shut down," he said. He hopes to have the glass re?' paired within a week. . , And he hopes, with the help pit the public, to find the dozens of antenna pennants that were, whipped from the cars on his lot.',', "I found two of them at the Bill Burke ball diamonds, and that's a' mile away," Rush said. "I need' those. I paid $30 a dozen, and all of them are gone. "I'm thinking about telling people if they bring one in, I'll give, them a free Koozie or a coffee mug or something." Browser may hold key to Microsoft's future By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The antitrust case against Microsoft describes the company as waging a take-no- prisoners fight to dominate the worldwide market for browsers, the software that people use to view information on the Internet. Within the sweeping federal lawsuits filed Monday, the company's own executives are seen as struggling to wrestle a stranglehold onto their biggest rival to win this "browser war." The government suggests that the browser battle threatens Microsoft's most lucrative product, Windows, which runs 90 percent of the world's desktop computers. Loss of Windows dominance would make people generally less reliant on Microsoft. The government accuses Microsoft of forcing generally "anti- competitive and exclusionary" contracts on computer makers solely to hold onto its Windows s market dominance. The government contends that Microsoft, with $11.4 billion in rey-, enue last year, recognized as early' as 1995 the threat that a technical; ly advanced browser could pose $ the company's lifeblood, Window's} In response, the government says, Microsoft sought to wield its market leverage as a weapon by' bundling its own browser with' Windows, forcing computer mak- f ers who sell Windows also to sell Microsoft's browser. Microsoft maintains that it inte 1 ' grated its browser into WindoWs; because it recognized consumer' 1 demand, not merely to head off competition. "The browser is just a way of displaying information, and that's; been part of the concept of the opelr-' ating system from way back," said Bill Gates, the company's founder!''"; ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — Myrta M.
