2A THE PALM EEACH POST SATURDAY. MARCH 23. 1998 Newsmakers Hospital worker admits killing up to 50 patients Queen Elizabeth II hits the pub and throws back a pint Qum ESzabetii I. steadily extending the frontiers of the modern monarchy, made her first official visit to a pub Friday. The queen's The Associated Frest LOS ANGELES A hospital employee has Lawyers debate paper trail in Brawley trial TV .V "? IfxMj Lawyers in the Tawana Braw-ley defamation trial waged an occasionally caustic battle Friday over Steven Pagones' detailed account of the five-day period during which Brawley claimed she was abducted and raped. Pagones reconstructed his motions between Nov. 24 and 28, 1987, reciting everything from the restaurants he patronized to the cars he drove, from the coffee he brewed to his phone calls. But when the defense team got its first opportunity during the trial to question him, Michael confessed to killing between 40 and 50 patients he believed were so ill they were close to death, a state board said Friday in suspending his license. The respiratory care practitioner confessed to police to killing dozens ot panents at Glendale JJ, V, . - , . .3 -i ytfn only other knoT3 experience with this fundamentally British institution occurred in 19-51, when her car got stuck in a snowdrift and she spent an unexpected night at a pub in Gloucestershire. Friday's outing to the Bridge Inn in Devonshire was a well-planned part of the day's progress through this part of southwest England. Hundreds of people turned out at Adventist Meaicai center since inov, saia catn-leen A. McCoy, executive officer of the state Respiratory Care Board. Prosecutors said they have been investigating the case for a month, but no charges have been LzabetiiB THE ASSOCiATEO PRESS Oil well still burning after a week LOVINGTON, N.M. - Flames feeding on methane, propane and butane gases bellow from a blown-out oil well Friday. The well blew out March 20, when the drill struck a natural gas pocket. Experts are on site to put out the fire. Suspension reversed in Pepsi prank filed against the worker, Efren Saldivar. Saldivar was jailed after his alleged confession on March 11 and released two days later for insufficient evidence pending further investigation, said Glendale Police Sgt Rick Young. Saldivar could not be located for comment Friday evening and it was not clear whether he has a lawyer. In a declaration to the board, Glendale police officer William Currie described a March 11 interview in which Saldivar waived his Miranda rights and confessed. "I interviewed Saldivar at length and he told me that he had caused between 40 and 50 deaths at GAMC since he was employed there in 1989," Currie stated. "Saldivar said some of the deaths were by lethal injections." Currie said Saldivar told him he also caused deaths by decreasing oxygen to patients on ventilators. Currie said Saldivar's criteria to kill a patient were: They had to be unconscious, have a do not resuscitate order and look like they were ready to die. "Saldivar said he prided himself in having very ethical criteria as to how he picked victims," Currie said. Currie said Saldivar stopped killing patients in August 1997, after he heard one of his co-workers saw morphine he was storing in his locker at work. McCoy said respiratory care practitioners administer medication ranging from painkillers to muscle relaxants. Hardy, the lawyer for Al Sharpton, sought to raise doubts about the authenticity of many documents that Pagones had to verify his testimony. Hardy demanded to know why a telephone bill listed calls in a nonchronological order and why a receipt did not specify which branch of a chain store issued it 'There is a marking," Pagones replied. "W "here it says tax, it's slashed out" The defense team had not yet begun its formal cross-examination of Pagones, who was on the witness stand for a second day, but was allowed to ask questions about the materials he cited. Pagones is suing Sharpton, Alton Maddox and C. Vernon Mason for saying that he and several other white men abducted and raped Brawley, a black woman, in November 1987, when she was 15. In October 1988, a special grand jury cited voluminous evidence that Brawley had fabricated her claims, and the panel specifically exonerated Pagones. the pink 1 1th century build-u-g to welcome their sovereign. The proprietors gave her a tour, brought the staff out to meet her and handed her a bottle of locally brewed a!e That is very kind." she replied when given the "lOl" ale, specially made to mark the 101 years Caroline CheffwvHeard't family has run the inn. She took some home to her husband in the trunk of her car. Is Ed Bradley aroused? - Was he aroused? David Letterman has been relentlessly ribbing Ed Bradley for putting the question to Kaihieefl WilJey during her 60 Minutes interview. Letterman ran a clip of the interview on Wednesday night's Late Show and bantered; "Was he aroused? What about you, Ed? How are you doing? It was a low moment for the republic." Letterman and Bradley work for the same network, CBS. In the interview, Willey accused President Clinton of a sexual advance. Don Hewitt, executive producer of 60 Minutes, said he hasn't seen Letterman's comments, but added: "I wouldn't deny David Letterman the right to say anything. That" s what he does for a living. I give everybody the right to free speech." Director earns epic payback ; Good things come in big packages for lames Cameron. Movie industry sources say the Titanic director stands to pick up a paycheck of up to $1j0 million for the film that won 11 Oscars and Tke Asscoo&d Press EVANS, Ga. Mike Cameron's Pepsi prank won't be on his permanent record after all. School officials decided Friday that Cameron and another high school student Dan Moxley, should not have been suspended for wearing Pepsi shirts to school on a day when Coca-Cola executives visited. "We still think the behavior was inappropriate and disruptive; however, we have decided that another method of discipline may have been more appropriate and we have decided to remove the suspensions from their records," Columbia County Superintendent Tom Dohrmann said at a news conference. "We also overreacted in that it wasn't appropriate to suspend the kid," he said. The penalty didn't fit the crime." School officials say the shirts were insulting and ruined a school picture in which students spelled out "Coke." Cameron said his principal told him of the decision Friday. "I was a little bit surprised. I didn't think she'd give in," he said. "I said, Thanks, I hold you in high respect You were just doing your job'." wi.T'.'i'iv.y.'i Today's forecast ...
