Paradise Valley I 11,767 Sourcns Arizona Department of Public Saloty and FBI Unifonri Cnm Reportt 114.496 Tlx Arizona Republic By David Fritz The Arizona Republic For Gov. Fife Symington, the move to a gated community began partly with his wife's scream. Ann Symington was standing in the master bathroom at their rambling house several years ago, staring at the mud-crusted footprints of a burglar who had scooped up all her jewelry. Three of their children had been home with a baby sitter at the time, but none heard the thief climb through a window. For Phoenix police theft Detective Tim Benedict, job security sunk in when his house was burglarized three times within several years. In one break-in, he lost the electronic gadgets paid for with insurance money from the previous theft. He hadn't yet thrown away the boxes they had come in. "I had a microwave for a week," he said. According to the FBI's annual national measure of crime, Arizona is a den of thieves. In the 1993 Uniform Crime Report, released last week and in such reports for at least the past 20 years Arizona has ranked among the worst in the nation in property-crime rates. The numbing tide of violent crimes draws most of the headlines and sound bites, as perhaps it should. But statistically, the state's infamy lies in the thousands of petty thefts, burglaries and car thefts See RAVAGED, page A 14 vmrnim mmm mm m '6 Bigger, better, brighter guide to about 300 displays inside the Sunday Gazette section Auto testin et tougher tog HOW THE NEW TEST WORKS To start the lM 240 test, you drive your car onto a dynamometer, a sort of treadmill for autos. The car is hooked into a strap to prevent sideways motion, and a fan is placed in front of the engine to keep it from overheating. A technician takes the wheel, while you slide over to the passenger side or wait in a nearby booth. The technician "drives" the car, speeding up and slowing down according to a chart on a computer screen outside the window. The car runs up to 56 mph and puts two miles on the odometer. The full test lasts 240 seconds, hence the name. Instead of a probe placed in the tailpipe to sample the exhaust, a fat orange hose is fitted over the opening to catch all of the pollutants and measure them exactly. In addition to carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons, which are checked under the current test, it tests for nitrogen oxides. If your vehicle fails, you can get a printout that graphs the emissions through each second of the lM 240 test. An auto technician can use it to pinpoint what repairs need to be made. Your vehicle also will be hooked up for a purge test, which makes sure that vapors from the gasoline tank are drawn off and absorbed in a charcoal canister. There's also a 1 pressure test to determine that the hoses and lines that transmit fuel to the engine are not cracked or leaking. !2r HOP KHtK rrucumc wcud m MtWJ ft Tom StoryThe Arizona Republic Many Valley drivers soon will be paying a $20 fee for auto-emissions testing. The current fee is $5.85. Longer, costlier chore By Kathleen Ingley The Arizona Republic Pay more, get less. That's the bottom line for the Valley's new, tougher auto inspections. Starting Jan. 3, you'll pay more for emissions testing. Your car or truck will be more likely to fail. And you'll probably spend more to fix it. The goal is to get less pollution in the Valley's air. And if you own a 1981 or newer auto, you'll go to the inspection station less often every two years instead of once a year. The Arizona Legislature included the changes in a package of clean-air measures a year ago. But many drivers don't know they're coming. "The public is in for a real jolt," said David Gillespie, owner of Car-Go Auto Repair in Deer Valley.

Lederer The Associated Pratt From the battlefields of Bosnia-Herzegovina to the killing fields of Cambodia and Rwanda, more than 1.5 million children around the world have been killed by wars over the past decade. The millions who survive face an often uncaring world that cannot cope with their wounded hearts and shattered lives. They cry out for parents who are dead or missing, for homes that have been blasted into rubble, for stolen "childhoods filled with gunfire instead of laughter. Mohammed Ajmal, 12, was trying to forget Afghanistan's civil war and indulge in one of the joys of childhood flying a kite when a rocket exploded in the yard of his house in Kabul, ripping his chest with shrapnel. For more than a month, he has Iain in the Indira Gandhi Children's Hospital, which was hit by 62 rockets earlier this year. There is no chest surgeon, and his family has no money to go abroad for an operation.
