In Monday night's exhibi tion game featuring the Super Bowl XXXII teams, the Denver Broncos again defeated the Green Bay Packers. This time, the final score was 34-31.

"Right now, we're a pretty sloppy football team," Packers coach Mike Holmgren said. "We just have to keep working to correct that." It all started promising enough, on the second play of the game, when strong safety LeRoy Butler picked off a John Elway pass intended for Rod Smith and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown. But the Packers' defense didn't otherwise distinguish itself, and Green Bay never led after Butler's score. The Packers got their other touchdowns on Brett Favre's 11-yard pass to Derrick Mayes, Roell Preston's 99-yard kickoff return and Raymont Harris' 1-yard run. Ryan Longwell added a 44-yard field goal.

After Harris' touchdown tied it 31-31, the Broncos won it on Jason Elam's 49-yard field goal with 3:10 left in the game. Green Bay fell to 2-2 in the preseason with only Friday night's game at Miami left before the regular-season opener on Sept 6 against Detroit at Lambeau Field. The Packers hadn't lost back-to-back exhibition games since 1993, and hadn't lost more than one preseason game since that year, when they were 1-4. Last week, the Oakland Raiders beat the Packers Door County tornado ravaging; but 1 i By Don Langenkamp Press-Gazette TOWN OF EGG HARBOR It started as a fairly inno cent water spout at about 6 p.m. Sunday off the coast of Menominee, Mich.

It picked up strength and size as it traveled eastward across the waters of Green Bay headed straight for Door County. By the time it reached land, it was a robust tornado, one seemingly equally hellbent on devastating property and sparing lives. It didn't take any lives, but it changed many. The waterspout-turned-tornado cut a vicious swath, and its memory will be indelible in the minds of those who survived its wrath. The tornado hit the shoreline like a vicious karate chop immediately south of Murphy Park, about five miles south of the village of Egg Harbor.

It threw docks and boats around like toys and tore huge cedars and other trees loose by their roots. Dan Williams, deputy director of emergency services for the county, estimated tornado damage would total at least $2 million. Oddly enough, it seemed as though most of the cottages sustained cursory damage some broken windows, or roof damage. -2 -i-w' Maloney quits job as a police officer John RoemerPress-Gazette Harbor in Door County. spares lives A Steve LevinPress-Gazette to help those families re build."

officials said Monday afternoon that power had been returned to most of the nearly 10,000 customers who lost power in the storm. The tornado destroyed seven large transmission structures. That left most northern Door County communities, including Egg Harbor, Gibraltar, Ephraim, Sister Bay, Liberty Grove and Gills Rock, without power Sun day. The utility said there are only a few scattered outages in isolated areas. Customers still without power are asked to call WPS at (800) 450-7240.

D-l Bonnie threatens East Coast Associated Press Hurricane Bonnie kicked up pounding surf and deadly rip tides along the East Coast on Monday as it churned out in the Atlantic with 115 mph wind, its course so erratic that forecasters couldn't say when or if it might hit land. "It's driving me bananas," said Jerry Jarrell, director of the National Hurricane Center near Miami. "I've lost almost all my hair just this morning because of that." A hurricane watch was issued Monday afternoon for much of the Southeast coast. The National Weather Ser vice said hurricane condi tions were possible by Wednesday morning in an area between Savannah, and the North CarolinaVir ginia state line.

With the storm still far out at sea, many vacationers and surfers stayed put to enjoy the beach while they could, but experienced coastal residents stocked up on emergency supplies or got ready to head for higher ground. Emergency management workers at Wilmington, N.C., an area battered by Hurricane Fran in September 1996, tested their genera tors and stocked up on sup plies, including bottles of Maalox and Turns. Ronna and David Lewis had already rented a trailer in case they need to move belongings from their home 200 yards from the shore at North Topsail Beach, N.C. The Lewises stayed on North Topsail Beach, on one of North Carolina low lying barrier islands, when Fran struck. "I really don't want that to happen again," Lewis said "I saw too many people lose their homes.

Storm damage more than $1 million But preliminary reports indicated that most cottages on the shoreline would survive, that structural damage was minimal. That would not be true when the tornado turned its attention inland.

"I have two huge plate-glass windows facing the bay, and I can't believe they didn't break," said Jim Wal-ward of Elm Grove, 111. "When that thing hit, it was unbelievable." The story told over and over was a litany of sadness over property loss overlaid with joy over no human loss. "I was surprised something didn't happen," Wal-ward said. "I hid in a closet and peeked out once. It was nothing but water and branches swirling around." An unidentified motorist at Murphy Park saw the funnel coming straight at him.

Maloney, 41, is accused of killing his estranged wife, Sandra Maloney, 40, and setting her Huth Street house and body on fire to cover the crime.

"I advised him and we discussed that it would be better for him to do this (resign) rather be called adversely to testify, which would have been allowed under the rules of that hearing," said Gerald Boyle, the attorney defending Maloney against criminal charges of homicide, arson and mutilating a corpse. Had Maloney fought termination, he could have been called to offer information that may have been detrimental to his criminal case. Maloney was placed on administrative leave after Sandra's body was found Feb. 11.

But even as reforms are undertaken, opinions remain divided over how best to structure prison-work programs to be fair to businesses, labor and inmates.

Nancy Bemmann, public information officer for the Door County Sheriff's Department, said 20 homes or cottages were destroyed and five others damaged by Sunday night's tornado, which ripped a path of destruction a mile wide and 3 miles long.
