A6 TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1996 NEWS THE SALINA JOURNAL V POWERBALL Lottery winner expected in Kentucky Winning ticket bought at convenience store in small Kentucky town By The Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. — One of the two winners in the $55.6 million Powerball drawing was expected at the Kentucky Lottery Corp. headquarters to claim half of the prize, a lottery official said Monday. The winner, who purchased the ticket in Calhoun in McLean County, was expected to make the trip, possibly Monday, and be publicly identified during a news conference, said lottery spokesman Rick Redman. The lottery said the ticket was' bought Thursday or Friday at the Pantry convenience store. Anoth- T O.J. SIMPSON TRIAL "We have no idea who the winner is." Angle Wedding employee of store where winning ticket was sold er winning ticket was sold in Indiana but there were no reports that winner had come forward yet. Each winner, who picked all six numbers correctly in Saturday's drawing, will receive $27.8 million. A lottery sales representative whose territory includes western Kentucky and McLean County had gone to the store and reported the Kentucky winner was preparing to claim the prize but a timetable for doing so was uncertain, Redman said. Angle Wedding, an employee of the Calhoun Pantry, confirmed Sunday she had been contacted by a Kentucky Lottery official to verify the winning number had been sold there. "But we have no idea who the winner is," Wedding said. The county's population is 9,700. The Powerball game is co-sponsored by the District of Columbia and 20 states, including Indiana and Kentucky.

RALPH WEIBEL Bonds - Insurance Phone 827-2906 115 East Iron They testify they saw only one glove at the scene of the murder By The Associated Press SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Plugging holes left by prosecutors who failed to convict O.J. Simpson of murder, two police officers who reached the scene hours before Mark Fuhrman said Monday they found only one bloody glove. The officers also swore they saw blood on a back gate — blood Simpson's criminal defense lawyers successfully claimed was planted three weeks after the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. The defense still claims the former detective snatched the matching glove and moved it to Simpson's home in a devious, racist plot to incriminate Simpson. Plaintiffs lawyers sought to refute that Monday at his civil trial. "You saw only one glove?" attorney Edward Medvene asked Officer Miguel Terrazas, who was not called to testify in the first trial. "Yes, sir," Terrazas said. "Did you observe any second glove?" Medvene asked. _ "No, sir," Terrazas said. Officer Robert Riske, Terrazas' partner, said he saw one glove, a cap and an envelope lying in blood T LIFE SAVER The Associated Press Police officer Miguel Terrazas testified Monday that he saw only one glove at Nicole Simpson's on the night of the murder. near the bodies. Riske testified early in the criminal trial and was never asked about a second glove, and he wasn't recalled to rebut claims nearly seven months later that Fuhrman had planted it inside the fence around Simpson's mansion. Riske and Terrazas said they arrived at Nicole Simpson's condominium around 12:15 a.m. on June 13, 1994, after receiving a call of a possible prowler in the area. Fuhrman arrived at 2:15 a.m. John Q. Kelly, representing Nicole Simpson's estate, had Riske identify pictures of blood drops on a back gate. He saw them when he arrived, Riske said. At the criminal trial, a police criminalist testified he didn't collect and test the blood drops on the gate until three weeks later, and that he couldn't see them in crime scene photos taken the day after the stabbings. But Riske's testimony appeared to counter the claim the blood was planted later. "I observed there to be blood on the inside of the rear gate and I was advised by my partner there was blood on the outside of the rear gate," Reske testified. When a picture of the crime scene flashed on a large TV set in the courtroom, he pointed to what he said was a bloody smear on the top of the gate and drops along the ledge and grating. Asked to describe the blood, he said, "It appeared to be fresh, moist, red." The testimony gave jurors their first look at a picture of Goldman's body, crumpled in a corner of the garden. As the photo flashed on the screen, Goldman's father, Fred, began to sob quietly in the front row of the courtroom. His wife, Eatti, put her arm around him. Harding becomes a hero by using CPR Tarnished skater saves life of elderly woman who passed out in bar By The Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. — Tonya Harding couldn't have invented a better story to help change her image. Now the deposed figure skating champion is a lifesaver. Harding says she believes God was behind her last-second decision Sunday to stop at a suburban bar for a few minutes to play video poker. Shortly after she arrived, an 81- year-old woman collapsed and stopped breathing. Harding called 911 with her cellular phone and revived Alice Olson by giving her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. "It was very, very scary," Harding said. "I kept my calm and cool and knew what I was doing. I had HARDING Entire Stock Contemporary Sportswear One Week ONLY Now thru November 2 to do this. I thank God that I was there. Nobody else in the bar knew what to do. ... This lady was literally dead for probably two minutes." Kim Ip, owner of the Lost and Found Saloon where the incident occurred, confirmed Harding's version of events. "The lady came to in a couple of minutes," Ip said. "I'm grateful that Tonya was here." Harding comforted the woman until paramedics arrived, Ip said. Olson, who suffers from heart problems and diabetes, was hospitalized overnight and released Monday. "I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her," Olson told KOIN-TV. "She saved my life." Harding told the Associated Press she and her godmother Linda Lewis were on their way to Harding's nearby home when they decided to stop at the bar. "I really believe that God had me there for a reason because we weren't going to stop because I'm trying to sell my house and somebody was going to come look at it and I had to get home to clean it," Harding said. "We decided to stop for about 15 minutes." >r Your State Of Mind. services Overnight Developing!
