Orrin Hatch said the president's best course is the truth. From News Services WASHINGTON, D.C. Sen. Orrin Hatch, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that President Clinton should "pour his heart out" to the American people about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky and that, by doing so, he could take the steam out of any possible drive to impeach him. "If he comes forth and tells it and does it in the right way, and there aren't a lot of other factors to cause the Congress to say, 'This man is unfit for the presidency and should be impeached,' then I think the president would have a reasonable chance of getting through this," Hatch said on the NBC's "Meet the Press." "I think the American people would breathe a sigh of relief," added Hatch, R-Utah. Democrats, too, were beginning to suggest that some sort of public accounting from the president would be useful. Former White House senior adviser George Stephanopoulos said that if Clinton had a sexual relationship with Lewinsky, a former White House intern, it's time to come clean. "Democrats believe the best thing for him to do right now is to go forward and tell the story," Stephanopoulos said on ABC's "This Week."

As the northwestern suburb becomes more populated, two developers, Opus Northwest and Rouse, are vying for the chance to build a regional shopping center. Maple Grove eyed for next mall site By Janet Moore and Melissa Levy Star Tribune Staff Writers As housing sprouts in the northwestern suburbs of the Twin Cities, it's likely those homeowners will crave that suburban mainstay a shopping mall. Two developers are vying to provide one. Minnetonkabased Opus Northwest LLC plans an "upper-ended, fashion-minded" mall with a "strong entertainment" component at the intersection of Inter state Hwys. 69494 and 494. The cost: $150 million. Just up the road, near the intersection of 1-94 and 101st Avenue, Columbia, Md.-based Rouse Co. has an option to buy a 100-acre site owned by the Osseo School District. Famed for developing Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston and Harborplace in Baltimore, Rouse also is considering building an enclosed shopping mall on the site. Whether a mall really will be V Proposed Em Creek . . IsL Rout Park Reserve X7 ' ossfST lOSstAv. Maple Vila sL VfG,ovex1U si I 2 n V Hope ,Jsebh 1 built is anyone's guess. But several experts agree that Maple Grove is perhaps the last frontier for mall-building in the Twin Cities. "You're not going to find many holes in the market," said Jay Scott, Opus' director of real estate development. "This is the last opportunity for a major regional mall in this metro area."

Star Tribune photos by Cheryl Diaz Meyer On the campaign trail To preserve time for people who are most likely to vote, candidates are keeping their sights trained on constituents who are motivated by a specific issue. Special-interest voters grab attention By Steve Berg Star Tribune National Correspondent RED WING, MINN. Congressional candidate Tracy Beck-man met hundreds of people when he blew through Red Wing last Tuesday. He stopped only briefly to chat with picnickers along the waterfront, truck drivers at a grain terminal and browsers poking through gift shops along the historic streets. But he spent extra time with senior citizens, listening patiently to the stories of their lives. "I'm not going to give you a lukewarm answer," he said, responding to the inevitable question. "I don't want to privatize even a portion of Social Security." Attention to older voters or any voters with special concerns is important in every campaign. But as candidates prepare for this November's midterm elections, they're paying particular attention to special interests. For Democrats like Beckman, that means more focus on the elderly, union members, environmentalists and small farmers. For Republicans, it means extra con sideration to religious conservatives, abortion opponents, gun owners and the anti-tax crowd. For any candidate, it means a tighter targeting of their money and message to the "usual suspects," the hard core, the single-issue types, the people most driven to vote. Why? With the economy humming and apathy prevailing, experts anticipate a dismal turnout in November perhaps the lowest in history. Turn to CAMPAIGN on kifor. Congress shares some blame. Republican John Kline mm Democrat Tracy Beckman Wisconsin boy dies after fall from water ride at megamall By Miml Moon Star Tribune Staff Writer A 12-year-old boy from Cable, Wis., died Sunday afternoon at Minneapolis Children's Hospital after falling a day earlier from the top of the Mall of America's Paul Bunyan Log Chute ride. The boy was on the ride in Knott's Camp Snoopy theme park with two other boys Saturday when he apparently became frightened and grabbed onto a railing beside the boat. A ride dispatcher stopped the ride, but not before the boat had started down the chute. The boy tumbled 30 feet to the floor, hitting his head on landscaping rocks as he fell. Authorities had not released the boy's name Sunday. He was transferred to Children's on Saturday night after undergoing surgery at Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina.

On Sunday, Fidel Castro returned to the site of that bitter defeat and received a 21 -gun salute and the cheers of the people of Grenada. The Cuban leader, arriving at the third and most controversial stop of a six-day tour of the Caribbean, made the most of the opportunity to turn the page on what he described as "that painful chapter" of history. He said he was eager to deepen relations with Grenada and unveiled a plaque in which Grenada officially thanks Cuba for helping to create the airport.
