Brooks & Dunn gain fifth award Host Gill captures song of the year award; Strait wins best single By The Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn, both struggling solo artists before teaming up, won their fifth consecutive Country Music Association award for best vocal duo Wednesday night. "We're going to be a duo for as long as you let us be a duo," Dunn said as he accepted the trophy. With the victory, Brooks & Dunn succeed the defunct duo The Judds, who won the award from 19881991, as country's preeminent duo. In other awards handed out early on, George Strait got best single for "Check Yes or No," and Junior Brown's "My Wife Thinks You're Dead" won best music video. Song of the year was "Go Rest High on the Mountain" by Vince Gill. Gill, host of the 30th annual Country Music Association awards show, led nominees with seven, opened the program and introduced 14-year-old LeAnn Rimes to sing the evening's first number. The crowd shouted in approval after the Dallas-based teen-ager sang "Blue," her Patsy Cline 7 indicted in theft of combat gear vehicles valued at $13 million were taken frbm military base By The Associated Press IMADISON, Wis. — The largest known theft of combat equipment from a military base, including a Vietnam-era Sheridan tank and njqre, than 100 combat vehicles, ledTtp the indictment of seven civilians Wednesday. ;|"This was not a crime of opportunity," said FBI agent Michael Sahtimauro. "This was a very sophisticated scheme to remove property, to manipulate the system and corrupt individuals." The tank, 17 armored personnel carriers and other vehicles valued at ;$|3 million were stolen from Forl'-McCoy, a 60,000-acre training bas£- in western Wisconsin with 2,300, civilian employees and about 200-military personnel.

Instead, the highly prized vehicles were sold to museums and collectors. Although no missiles or other weapons were stolen, launchers for TOW anti-tank missiles were mounted on some of the armored personnel carriers. Each carrier would be worth an estimated $350,000 to collectors. Also stolen were Jeeps, an airport runway snow blower, a crane, other heavy equipment and trucks. Most of the equipment has been returned to Fort McCoy. The^ indictment named two civilian employees at Fort McCoy who allegedly accepted $38,000 in bribes and forged documents al- lowing the gear to be trucked away; two military surplus dealers; a military museum operator; and two other men. Lautenschlager said the scheme was masterminded by Leo Anthony Piatz Jr., 37, Hudson, owner of Tony's Military Surplus. None of the men were taken into custody. baffled by sarin gas poisoning By The Associated Press <•• ''. ''" ~~ WASHINGTON — The Pentagon remains baffled that no sol- die,rp appear to have died from sarin gas poisoning at the end of the jpersian Gulf War despite evidence indicating thousands may have' been exposed, a senior defense official said Wednesday. "The primary known symptom is, death," the official told reporters, speaking on condition he not tfe named. "This is really lethal stuff." But he added, "We don't have any examples at this time of anybody dying from exposure." The Clinton administration, sharply criticized for its handling of the Persian Gulf War syndrome issue, has ordered a sweeping Pentagon re-evaluation of the matter even as the CIA completes work on a detailed wind current study that could show how many troops may have been exposed. In a separate initiative, Defense Secretary William Perry is considering a program to inoculate all 1.5 million active-duty service members against the germ warfare agent anthrax. At the center of the nerve gas controversy is the March 199,1 de- molition by U.S. Army troops of Iraqi rocket shells the military now knows contained sarin nerve gas. As much as two tons of sarin may have gone up in the demolition of weapons in an open pit and a bunker called Khamiseyah. "Khamiseyah, in our judgement, is a watershed in this search for an understanding of Persian Gulf veterans' illnesses," said the senior official. "Khamiseyah is the first event where we now can place American troops in the known presence of chemical agents." Despite persistent reports of unexplained ailments among Gulf sound-alike hit that made her an instant star this year. Dolly Parton, Randy Travis, Collin Raye and Tracy Lawrence also performed. Parton sang a medley of country music classics from her latest album, and dedicated "Behind Closed Doors" to the late Charlie Rich, who had the first hit with the song. "Blue" lost to "Check Yes or No" in the best single category. Rimes was also up for the Horizon Award for most promising artist, against Terri Clark, Wade Hayes, Shania Twain and Bryan White. Garth Brooks competed with Gill in the race for best entertainer, along with George Strait, Brooks & Dunn and 1995 winner Alan Jackson. .White and Raye joined old hands Gill, Jackson and Strait in the best male vocalist race. Twain, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Pam Tillis and Patty Loveless were up for best female vocalist. McBride's "Wild Angels" and Loveless' "The Trouble With the Truth" were up for best album. The CMA show, televised on CBS, is one of three in the industry's pantheon. The Academy of Country Music stages its show in California in the spring, and the fan-voted TNN Music City News Awards are presented in summer. Road / Intersection to be safer for traffic FROM PAGE A1 "People are people; anything inconvenient, they're not going to try to come," Mar said. "I don't see how I could hang on as long as I did. It's hard, believe me." At Suburban TV and Appliance Center, 1900 S. Ninth, customers had to park across the street at Alco during July, said the store's manager, Virgil Kinklaar. "There's a lot of people who called who won't even use Ninth Street, much less try to get into the parking lot," Kinklaa^ said. "Now we have both entrances open." O'Leary credited the contractor, J.H. Shears' Sons, with keeping the street open by working in three phases. He said business owners were understanding. "I can't say enough about how everybody has worked with us. They had some difficulty, as anyone does who has construction in front of their business," O'Leary said. "We tried to take every opportunity we could to make it less inconvenient. I've heard they suffered a little bit, but they hung in there and did a super job." The project will replace the Y- intersection at Broadway Boulevard and Ninth Street with a T-intersection. Unlike before, drivers moving south on Ninth Street can turn north on Broadway Boulevard, and vice versa. The 4-lane Ninth Street will expand to 6 lanes at the intersection, with two northbound lanes, two south- bound lanes and two left-turn lanes onto Broadway Boulevard. There will be five lanes at Broadway Boulevard at the intersection, with two southbound, two westbound and one lane to turn north onto Ninth. "It was essentially a very inconvenient intersection before," O'Leary said. "The design had been done 45 years ago, when it was a rural area and a rural highway system. "I think we just outgrew it," he said. "It was becoming more and more of a potential hazard, and there was a lot of congestion, especially during heavy traffic peri-- ods on Saturday afternoons and Sundays." The Kraft Manor parking lot will have four entries and new curbs. New medians will be landscaped by the city's parks and recreation department and lighted. A wet spring and late summer put the project behind schedule, but the contractor's decision to use an asphalt instead of rock base allowed work to proceed after rains. All that remains of the project, O'Leary said, is half of the Otto Street intersection, and about 600 feet of Ninth Street. "Things will move along quickly now," he said. "The nice thing about phase 3, from the contractor's perspective, he'll be able to work outside the flow of traffic altogether." ON THE RECORD War veterans, the Pentagon has said repeatedly it has found no evidence of a "Persian Gulf War syndrome" and no medical evidence of gas poisoning. Only last June did defense officials realize from Army reports as well as United Nations weapons inspections that what was intended as a routine postwar demolition of conventional weapons may have let loose a lethal gas cloud. As the CIA studies wind and weather patterns prevailing the day of the demolition, officials fear the number potentially exposed could reach ,100,000.
