Man who once testified on Simpson's behalf testifies against celebrity By LINDA DEUTSCH The Associated Press SANTA MONICA, Calif. — A dog-walker who testified for the defense at O.J. Simpson's murder trial took the stand against him Friday, setting a timeline for the slayings of his ex-wife and her friend by describing a wildly barking dog, a shouting man and a white speeding vehicle. Robert Heidstra put the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman at around 10:35 p.m., and the vehicle sighting between 10:40 and 10:45 p.m. The account in Simpson's civil trial contradicts prosecutors Marcia Clark and Chris Darden, who had said the murders happened at 10:15 p.m., leaving ample time for Simpson to rush home and meet a limo waiting for an 11 p.m. pickup. But for the plaintiffs, it puts the killings within a period of time for which Simpson has no alibi, and plays into the picture they painted in opening statements of a wildly rushed killer who left a wealth of incriminating evidence at the scene. According to Heidstra's timeline, Simpson would have had very little time to drive home, ditch bloody clothes and a murder weapon and meet a limo. But the testimony places the white vehicle near the murder scene — Nicole Simpson's condominium — and Heidstra was vague enough about the time to allow the plaintiffs to argue that Simpson did have time to kill and return home. Simpson was acquitted of mur- T GIFT OF LIFE The Associated Press O.J. Simpson arrives Friday at Los Angeles Superior Court as testimony in the wrongful death suit against him continued. der a year ago, but the Goldman and Brown families are suing him for wrongful death, trying to prove he killed them. In a brief cross-examination, defense attorney Robert Baker tried to get Heidstra to move back the time of the vehicle sighting closer to 10:45 p.m., but Heidstra insisted his tunes were only estimates and he couldn't be sure. Heidstra, a defense witness -in the criminal trial, said he was walking his two dogs June 12,1994, when he heard the loud barking of Nicole Simpson's Akita — and then a man's shouts. "All of a sudden, I heard a clear voice say, 'Hey, hey, hey!" he recalled. "It was a young, clear voice." Immediately after that, "I heard another voice talking very fasti* a deeper voice, very fast, soundihg like an argument or something like that," Heidstra said. He said that voice sounded older than the first voice. Heidstra said he walked his dogs to the end of the alley and turned toward an intersection illuminated by a street light. "From nowhere, all of a sudden ... from out of the dark came into the light a white Jeep-like car," he said. "... It sped away south." : Baker noted that O.J. Simpson lives to the north and would not have turned south if he was trying to get home fast. But Heidstra said the northern approach would avoid traffic lights. Baker also noted that Heidstra, who works as a car detailer, originally identified the car as similar to a light-colored Chevy blazer rather than a white Bronco, which Simpson drives. Heidstra was unmovable on the point and said he now remembers it as white. Two more neighbors filled out the time line. Steven Schwab said he found the Akita wandering the streets at 10:55 p.m. Sukru Boztepe testified he followed the dog back to the condominium just after midnight, and "saw a lady laying down full of blood." Earlier Friday, a bartender at Mezzaluna restaurant contradicted O.J. Simpson's claim that Goldman — his co-worker — was headed for a date with Nicole Simpson the night of the murders. "No, he wasn't dating Nicole at all," Stewart Tanner said. Kidney donor returning to Salina Salinan to recuperate at home after giving a kidney to his ailing uncle in Sacramento By DAVID CLOUSTON The Salina Journal " There couldn't have be'en a better donor for Jerry Phelps' kidney than his nephew Scott Phelps. The operation in California went fine, said Scott's mother, Linda Phelps, 200 S. Third. "The .kidney is working 100 percent. The doctors told him not in a million years could he have gotten a more perfect match," Linda Phelps said Friday. Scott Phelps was to fly to Salina Friday night. The operation to donate his kidney to his uncle took place Oct. 16 at Sutter Memorial V REBECCA A. MORRISON HOUSE "Scott's a long ways from being well, but he's still able to come home and recuperate." Linda Phelps mother of kidney donor Scott Phelps t Hospital in Sacramento, Calif. Jerry Phelps, 56, of Sacramento, had a heart transplant in 1993. Before the operation they discovered his left kidney had shut down and his right kidney was in danger. Scott Phelps agreed to donate a kidney because his uncle couldn't have kidney dialysis because of its ef- fect on the anti-rejection drugs Jerry Phelps was taking for his new heart. Jerry Phelps remains in the hospital, Linda Phelps said, because of a reaction to his medicine that's making him sick to his stomach.". "Scott's a long ways from being well, but he's still able to come home and recuperate," she said. , \ Doctors have told Scott Phelps he needs to be checked regularly by a urologist for six months, she said. Jerry Phelps' condition, aside from his stomach illness, is much improved, Linda Phelps said. He no longer is retaining fluid and his skin color has gone from yellow to pink. , She said a Sacramento television station did a report about the operation because Jerry Phelps is the first heart recipient from that area to receive a kidney from a live donor. . Donors sought to assist Morrison house Backers want donors to adopt as many days as possible at $100 apiece By DAVID CLOUSTON The Salina Journal • As the home away from home for travelers who are family of patients at Salina Regional Health Center, the Rebecca A. Morrison House, 513 S. Eighth, fills a need. A new giving program is seeking money to allow the hospitality home to continue serving the public. Through the Adopt-A-Day program, a gift of $100 will sponsor one day at the Morrison House. Donors may sponsor as many days as they choose to support. The goal is to have each day of 1997 sponsored, raising $36,500 for operating expenses. Linda Tysen, Morrison home manager, got the idea for the program at a workshop in Chicago. A home in North Carolina had used a similar program with much success, she said. "It costs $152 a day (to operate the home) actually," said Tysen. "But we thought that's an odd number and $100 is a nice, even round number." It costs $52,000 annually to keep the home open, and about a third of that is recouped from guests, Tysen said. A reserve fund has assisted the home with expenses since it opened nearly three years ago. "Now we need to solicit funds from other sources," Tysen said. About seven or eight responses have been received since letters an- nouncing the program were mailed out, she said. Some of the members of the home's advisory board haye also adopted days already. ! Since its opening Nov. 23, 1993, about six guests a night, on average, have stayed at the Morrison House. The guests have come frqm 178 different Kansas communities, 36 states and three foreign countries. One woman from Plainvilje stayed at the house for 68 days while her husband was treated for a rare disease. ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — Dorothy B.
