THE SALINA JOURNAL NATION MONDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1996 AB T OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING The Associated Press Judge Richard Matsch Is keeping a tight but calm hold on the trial of Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Judge taking calm, cautious approach Calm as a kindergarten teacher, Judge Matsch is keeping tight control of trial By SANDY SHORE The Associated Press DENVER — First came the separate trials issue pushed by Oklahoma City bombing suspects Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Next, squabbles over prison food, evidence and the media. With a dash of dry wit and the calmness of a kindergarten teacher, U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch considered them all last week, moving the Oklahoma City bombing case one step closer to a trial date — or dates. Prosecutors and defense attorneys alike respect Matsch for his meticulous research and basing his rulings on facts, not emotion. They expect ho less of him on the most critical issue argued last week: Whether McVeigh and Nichols should be tried separately. Matsch took the matter under advisement, and is expected to set a trial date after he rules. "Judge Matsch has been cautious," said Irven Box, an Oklahoma City attorney and TV trial analyst who attended the pretrial hearing. "Each side has been given every opportunity." McVeigh and Nichols are charged with murder and conspiracy in the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Oklahoma City federal Building, which killed 168 people and injured more than 500. Prosecutors say most evidence will be admitted against both men and a joint trial would be more efficient and less traumatic for witnesses, survivors and families. McVeigh and Nichols say it would be unfair to ask one jury to listen to evidence admitted against each man and yet judge them individually. Matsch could order one trial and instruct jurors to keep the evidence separate; order separate trials or seat two juries during a joint trial — one for each defendant. Matsch also let the attorneys resolve a dispute involving Nichols' protest prison officials were denying him high-fiber foods he needs for a medical condition following bowel surgery. TJOBS Jobs go to low-cost cities Low taxes, costs bring 162,000 new jobs to Las Vegas in six years By The Associated Press NEW YORK — What do Las Vegas, Austin and Boise do better than New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles? They're better at producing new jobs, and a survey in Forbes magazine says that's because they have lower taxes, wages, office rents and other costs of doing business. -"There's no mystery: Business creates jobs, and business goes where — other things being fairly equal — costs are low," said the article titled, "It's the costs, stupid," appearing in the Oct. 21 issue of Forbes. ; The survey found Las Vegas gained 162,000 jobs, a 38 percent net increase, from January 1990 to July 1996, ranking it No. 1 in job creation among 36 cities. Its business costs were 10 percent below the national average, according to the magazine, which hits newsstands today. -•The magazine said low taxes were a key factor in Las Vegas' lure. "With lower taxes, every- tiding else becomes cheaper, too: wages, rents, energy costs." >lThe Austin-San Marcos metropolitan area in Texas tied with Boise, Idaho, for second place. The magazine said each area posted a 34 percent gain in jobs over the January 1990-July 1996 period. And their c§sts of doing business were under the national average. The net increase in employment was figured after deducting any job losses. "At the bottom of the scale was Philadelphia. -/The survey calculated that the C5,ity of Brotherly Love actually lost jabs, down 6 percent overall, during the 1990-96 period, and that its costs for businesses were 10 percent above the national average. bOther job losers were: Hartford, Conn.; Los Angeles; Honolulu; San Francisco; New Haven, Conn.; and New York.
