THE PALM BEACH POST FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 1998 2A Newsmakers Marine crew charged in ski lift deaths p.i-m mm ii jmiiiiniiMijiniMH) " ' ' ' "i . , 7 '! ' i, j i I ' , -i. , A Princess Di's brother to carry on crusade against land mines Palm Beach Post Wire Reports "Earl Spencer called land mines an "obscenity" on Thursday and said he will carry on the crusade of his sister, the late Princess Diana, against them. Spencer's visit to Cambodia, one of the world s most heavily mined countries, follows a wish of Diana's that he journey with her to make a documentary. "Our film can never come to fruition, of course, but our conversations have compelled me to complete her wish in some way, by coming here myself." Spencer spoke at the graduation of students who learn to Organ transplant policy will assist 'sickest' patients Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON The Clinton administration on Thursday announced a far-reaching new policy on organ transplantation, aiming to ensure that organs go to the sickest patients first, regardless of where they live. The current system, a patchwork of regional plans, more often than not favors patients by geography rather than medical necessity, said officials from the Department of Health and Human Services. "This is about living or dying," Health and Human Services Secretary Donna E. Shalala told reporters at a briefing. "This is about where you happen to live affecting whether you live or die. People are dying unnecessarily not because they don't have health insurance, not because they don't have access to care, but because of where they happen to live. We need a level playing field for all patients." While the medical technology and survival rates of organ transplantation have been steadily improving in recent years, the need for organs has persistently far exceeded the supply available for donation. It is estimated that 10 people every day die in the United States while waiting for a donated kidney, liver, heart, lung or other organ. About 54,500 are waiting for organs, and the list grows by about 500 every month, according to the Health and Human Services Department. There also is a significant disparity in waiting times for organs, with patients in some areas having to wait five times or more longer than in other areas, the department said. The new rules would require the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network the private sector system created by the National Organ Transplant Act of 1984 to develop standardized medical criteria to rank patients nationally, with the neediest being the first on the list Currently, patients are ranked locally, where donated organs are first made available; if an organ cannot be used locally, either because there is no needy patient or the biological match is incompatible, the organs are offered regionally, and then nationally. CLAIRE D. DUGGANCox News Service A common cause WASHINGTON - Colton Margus, 10, of Boca Raton shakes hands Thursday with Muhammad AN during a House committee session on medical research. AN suffers from Parkinson's disease, and Colton's two brothers have Ataxia-Telangiectasia, a rare and often fatal disease. Die Washington Post WASHINGTON Military authorities have charged the four-man crew of a Marine jet that severed a cable car wire in the Italian Alps with involuntary manslaughter, negligent homicide, dereliction of duty and damage to military and private property, Defense Department officials said Thursday. The charges, due to be announced today, follow an investigation that blamed the crew for causing the Feb. 3 disaster, which sent 20 Europeans in the ski lift plummeting to their deaths. Investigators concluded the plane an EA-6B Prowler surveillance jet was flying too low and too fast, not only at the time it sliced the wire, but repeatedly during the training flight. The aircraft and crew belong to a Marine squadron normally based in Cherry Point, N.C., that was on temporary assignment in Aviano, Italy, as part of the international Bosnian peacekeeping mission. NATO's top military commander, U.S. Army Gen. Wesley Clark, rejected Italy's request that the four officers be handed over to Italian authorities for prosecution. Senior Marine officials are hoping to quell the public and political outrage that the accident triggered in Italy. The crew members Captains Joseph Schweitzer, William L. Raney II, Chandler P. Seagraves and Richard J. Ashby, the pilot now face the military equivalent of a civilian grand jury, a pretrial investigation to determine whether the charges should be referred to a court-martial. Charest seeks to lead Quebec anti-separatists Spencer fit artificial limbs. He said he cared little about mines until Diana "forced me, and many others, to face up to' the obscenity that land mines represent." Diana" died last August in a Paris car crash. They said, he said - " Nike and documentary maker Michael Moore butted heads over The Big One. Moore inter; vie.ws the company's chairman, Phil Knight, in his film about corporations using factories over-sea. The filmmaker said he refused to excise a line or two at Nike's request. The company asked him to cut Knight's statement that the minimum age for Asian footwear factory work-ersjs 14, Moore said. He said Lee Weinstein, Nike's director of U.S. public relations, also asked hirn to cut Knight's wisecrack that one of those poor Indonesian factory workers would be Moore's landlord one day. Nike denied asking for. those changes but said the company asked Moore to add that Nike has voluntarily instituted a minimum working age of 16 at its factories. Nike spokesman Vada Manager said Moore refused, offered to change the film only if Nike would build a factory or warehouse in Flint, Mich., the downtrodden auto industry city Moore profiled in Roger & Me. Have you heard . . . B As if wearing the Titanic necklace wasn't enough, Celine Dion has a new Reuters SHERBROOKE, Quebec Federal Conservative leader Jean Charest, seen as the potential savior of Canadian unity, said Thursday he would seek the leadership of the anti-separatist Quebec liberal Party. "My decision has been made. I have chosen Quebec," the popular 39-year-old native Quebecker said after weeks of agonizing over whether to abandon his dream of becoming prime minister of "I simply cannot turn a deaf ear to the numerous appeals and expressions of support and encouragement I have received urging me to come to Quebec to work directly to promote and defend the province's interests," he said. Charest, one of the most effective campaigners for unity in an October 1995 referendum on whether the mainly French-speaking province should break away from Canada, said the threat of new independence referendums was damaging the economy. 5 ,?s:H mtvhu :i Today's forecast U -.y Ta,,8a3T . v 8058 O D O CD honor.
