About 30 employers from Salina, Solomon and Wichita will attend to take job applications, conduct interviews and talk about job openings. There will be five 30-minute seminars on topics including motivating yourself, completing applications, writing resumes, improving your interviewing skills and job searching on the Internet. The first seminar starts at 10:30 a.m. Potential employees may also have their resumes critiqued by Melany Pearce, project director of the Salina Area Regional Work Force Center, a division of the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce. Phyllis Anderson, spokeswoman for Occupational Center of Central Kansas at 1710 W. Schilling, which helped organize the EXPO, said local companies were eager to attend this year's job fair. With fewer than 770 people looking for jobs in Salina, Anderson said, businesses are desperate to find both skilled and unskilled labor. "The fact that businesses are paying office staff overtime to attend the fair shows how committed they are to find workers," she said. Last year, 700 people attended the EXPO and about 40 of them were hired at the fair, Anderson said.

Arguments begin today in civil case Burden of proof, jurors differ from criminal trial, but killings spur case • By The Associated Press SANTA MONICA, Calif. — It's a different courtroom with different lawyers, different jurors and a different standard of proof. The question, however, is the same: Did O.J. Simpson kill Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman? Opening statements begin today in the wrongful-death lawsuit brought against Simpson by the Brown and Goldman families. They are demanding unspecified damages from Simpson for the slayings, of which he was acquitted in criminal court a year ago. The lawyers in the civil case have both the advantage — and disadvantage — of having seen the evidence unfold in court already. T COURTS Talk-show host may have to talk Jones may testify at trial in killing stemming from her talk show By The Associated Press PONTIAC, Mich. — Defense attorneys want talk show host Jenny Jones to testify in the trial of a man charged with killing a gay neighbor who revealed his secret crush on him on Jones' show. Jurors saw evidence Tuesday from the mobile.home where Scott Amedure was killed by two shotgun blasts in March 1995, several days after the videotaping of a segment on secret crushes for the syndicated "Jenny Jones Show." The segment never aired, although it was shown at the trial of Jonathan Schmitz, 26, who is charged with first-degree murder. Defense attorney James Burdick argued in the motion filed Monday that Donna Riley, a friend of Schmitz and Amedure, testified for the prosecution about Jones' activity during the taping. "Therefore, the prosecution itself has now acknowledged the relevance of, and opened the door widely for, the testimony of Jenny Jones herself," Burdick wrote. Oakland Circuit Judge Francis X. O'Brien denied a similar pretrial motion after Telepictures Productions, the show's owner, argued that Jones' only involvement with Schmitz and Amedure was recorded on videotape. Arguments on Burdick's motions were scheduled for today. Prosecutors wrapped up their case Tuesday. Defense lawyers don't deny that Schmitz killed Amedure, but contend the show ambushed and humiliated Schmitz because he thought he was appearing to meet a female secret admirer. "The prosecutors were blind- sided last time," said Laurie Levenson, dean of Loyola University Law School. "This time there will be fewer surprises to deal with." Simpson's lawyers are expected to sound the same themes that echoed so powerfully at his murder trial: claims that he was the victim of botched or tampered- with evidenpe as well as a racist police frame-up on Fuhrman's part. For the plaintiffs, the challenge is to prove something prosecutors could not — that Simpson stabbed to death his ex-wife and her friend in 1994 in a fit of rage and that a trail of blood, DNA and other physical evidence prove it. This time, though, the standard of proof is lower. The jury need only be convinced by "the preponderance of the evidence," not "beyond a reasonable doubt." That means the jury can hold Simpson responsible for the slayings if 51 percent of the evidence goes against him. And unlike the criminal case, the verdict does not have to be unanimous.
