2A THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, MARCH 30, 1998 ; : i . i Newsmakers Paper: Police keep man in cage J ! Sonny Bono's mother has choice words for his widow ' Palm Beach Post Wire Reports ! The mother of the late Congressman Sonny : Bono said her son would have preferred his wife : to stay home to care for the couple's young cnil-. dren instead of succeeding him in office. 'I want her to stay home," Jean Bono said in an in i.-iiiiti auLi: !!:lt-$ ft terview puDusnea oaiuiuay m The Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif. Mary Bono is the Republican favorite in the race for her late husband's congressional seat. A special election is scheduled for April 7. Mary Bono had said her children Chianna, 7, and Chesare, 9 would remain enrolled in a private school and live in their home in the nf a longtime nanny for 3 14, ft! Mary Bono Even supporters say stonewalling on Lewinsky is taking toll on presidency Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON As talk spreads of impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, some of the president's staunchest supporters are concerned that his refusal to explain his relationship with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky is seriously endangering his presidency. A recent poll of 100 congressional staff members found 43 percent of Republicans and 21 percent of Democrats predicting that, if Clinton does not resign, the House Judiciary Committee will conduct impeachment hearings soon based on evidence transmitted by independent counsel Kenneth Starr. Republican approval of an additional $1.3 million for the Judiciary Committee has been denounced by Democrats as a move to beef up the committee staff for an impeachment inquiry. Although Chairman Henry J. Hyde, R-Ill., denied that the money is for that purpose, House Majority Leader Dick Armey, R-Texas, acknowledged that the money could be spent to examine Starr's evidence. The independent counsel is investigating allegations that Clinton and Lewinsky engaged in oral sex in the White House, a charge that the president has denied under oath, and that Clinton may have asked the former intern to lie about the matter. In a withering editorial, Albert Eisele, a Democrat and editor of The Hill, a weekly publication that covers Congress, wrote that Clinton "has disgraced and degraded the presidency and betrayed his family and friends, his party and his country. "Americans are willing to forgive their elected officials almost anything as long as they tell the truth," wrote Eisele, who served as press secretary to Vice President Walter Mondale. "We do not believe that Clinton has done that in the present case, and we don't know if he will, or is even able to, without exposing himself to charges of perjury." In addition, said one prominent Democrat: "... On a political level, everybody has to be in the same boat for now because they don't want to screw up the congressional elections in November." fnrrpo.;: The man, a Chinese farmer, has been jailed without trial for at least 10 years. Tlie Associated Press BEIJING Police in southern China have imprisoned a farmer without trial for 10 years, at least five of them in a tiny cage where reporters found him naked and hungry. The official Yangcheng Evening News published two photos showing Deng Qilu staring out from his cage, which is just slightly larger than a coffin and too small to stand up in. Deng, said by the newspaper to be in his 40s, had a beard, no clothes, and what appeared to be iron shackles on his legs. He gulped down food given to him by visitors who found him in the cage this month, saying he hadn't eaten in two to three days, the newspaper said in its Saturday edition. China has been the frequent target of criticism by human rights groups overseas for detaining people for long periods without trial. But Deng's case was particularly unusual. Also unusual was the story's appearance in a state-run newspaper. In recent years, China's state-run media have been more aggressive in covering stories that are potentially embarrassing to authorities, but critical news accounts are still rare. The newspaper said Deng ST." 2 mmm. t stnui F ST 35 THE ASSOCIATED. PRESS . This front-page article pictures Deng Qilu in the cage he's been kept in for at least five years. China's Yangcheng, Evening News reported that Deng is in his 40s. : Deng's father, Deng Lichuan, , as saying the cage stood next ' ; to a stinky drainage ditch out; side the county police's deten-, ' tion center until last summer. " Police then used a tractor , to drag the cage to another1-village, where reporters found ' Deng. They said he appeared ' lucid at times, raving at others: ; -Asked why he was imprisoned,'' Deng replied: "They won't let ' -me say," the newspaper said. ' ' was detained 10 years ago after he stabbed and wounded a police officer in southern Guangdong province. Officials did not hand him over for trial because they thought him mentally unstable, it said. An officer with Xuwen county police said he had not heard of Deng's case, but he denied that police were keeping him locked up. The newspaper quoted HII?H.H'.I.M. 2 Today's forecast Jacksonville 8365 Tallahassee - 1 8568 : the time being. She declined to respond to her : mother-in-law's comments. Sonny Bono's eldest daughter, Christy Bono, said Jean Bono's comments were "highly uncalled for and incredibly hurtful." "Nothing would make my father happi- ; er than Mary achieving this goal and carrying ; out his legacy," she said. Celebs lining up for new Beetle ; Beetle mania is sweeping Hollywood, where ' flashy luxury cars and sport utility vehicles have been the preferred mode of transportation. Singer Lyle Lovett, actor Larry Hagman and Fleetwood Mac's John McVie couldn't wait to be the first celebrities with the new helmet-shaped $15,000 Volkswagen Bug in their driveway. "I've never had a Beetle before. But I saw this car ; and I really wanted it. It's so cute," Hagman ' said before driving off the lot in Ventura last ' week in his 1998 silver Bug. Lovett was the first -person to rent a new Beetle on Friday at Beverly Hills Budget Rent A Car. "We've received - calls from half the stars in Hollywood who want to rent the new Beetle. Even though they're all grown up and driving Mercedes and Ferraris, this car makes them feel young again," said Ken Kerzner, head of the rental-car office in Beverly Hills. Besides bug-eyed celebrities, Californians are lining up to buy the new VW. Waiting lists are growing and bidding wars are breaking out, ;dealers say. Chinese leader starts cremation trend : China's late paramount leader Deng Xiaoping, who died in February of 1997, has started a trend by instructing that his ashes be scattered at sea, the Xinhua news agency reported. The country's cremation rate has now reached 37 percent as more and more Chinese are opting for cremation. Ahead of the traditional "grave-sweeping day" next Sunday, authorities are reminding citizens of their long-standing drive to encourage cremation over ground burial to conserve valuable farmland. China must feed 22 percent of the world's population with only sev- en percent of its arable land. 'X-Files' leaving Canada for LA. . The most popular television series ever shot Jin Canada is moving to Los Angeles. Chris Carter, creator-producer of Ttie X-Files, told the cast land crew Friday night that the highly rated Fox-;TV series would be leaving British Columbia for Hollywood next season. Rumors that the popular series would leave Vancouver have been circulating for months; stars David Duchovny and 'Gillian Anderson both live in Los Angeles. The Show's publicist confirmed the move and said an official announcement would be made later Jhis week. "It's difficult to be away from your ..family for that long," said Tom Adair, business 'representative for the show's production union. f-'That's the only reason that would make any sense not economic sense, it's emotional sense."
