Navy divers conclude search for TWA Flight 800 wreckage By The Associated Press EAST MORICHES, N.Y. — Navy divers made their last trip to the bottom of the ocean to retrieve the wreckage of TWA Flight 800 on Saturday, ending 15 weeks of a painstaking search that has yet to reveal a cause. Divers made more than 3,800 trips to the ocean floor, pausing o.nly for hurricanes and tall waves, since the jumbo jet exploded over the Atlantic Ocean on July 17. In an emotional ceremony marking the end of their work, dozens of divers Saturday placed a wreath and carnations in the ocean in memory of the 230 victims. "We'll go back to work. We'll go back to our other cases. But it will never go away completely," said Michael Tyms, an FBI diver. "I leave with a little sense of disappointment, not being able to say, 'We have an answer,'" Tyms said. "It's kind of an empty feeling." The Navy said Saturday that 98 percent of the plane and 214 bodies had been retrieved. Searchers will now use scallop nets to dredge the ocean floor in an attempt to recover the remaining 2 percent of the plane. Teen files sexual harassment suit Girl says sixth-grade boys' behavior forced her to change schools By HOLLY CORYELL 77ie Associated Press STAMFORD, N.Y. — Ninth- grader Eve Bruneau is now in a new school, earning high marks, serving as captain of her junior varsity soccer team and playing flute and saxophone in the band. Three years ago, at South Kortright Central School, she was depressed, cried frequently and begged her mother to let her stay home. She didn't feel safe. Previously a straight-A student, she had failing grades. The reason she was forced to change schools, according to her lawsuit against South Kortright — sexual harassment. The federal lawsuit, which goes to trial Monday in Binghamton, claims that boys in Eve's sixth- grade class called her and other girls names such as "dog-faced bitch," "prostitute" and "lesbian." The boys also snapped the girls' bras, stuffed paper down their blouses and rubbed their hands up and down girls' backs, according to Eve's lawyers. One boy grabbed a girl's breasts, while another cut a girl's hair, they said. "I started to think maybe I am ugly and maybe I am a bitch," Eve said in a recent interview in the Scoharie County farmhouse where she and her younger sister were born. "By the time I left, I was just like a wreck. I had really bad posture. I was depressed all the time." Eve's case — one of a growing number of sexual harassment lawsuits involving children — could be the first federal peer harassment lawsuit to go to trial seeking T BRAZIL PLANE CRASH The Associated Press Eve Bruneau, now a ninth-grader at a private boarding school in Massachusetts, claims she was harassed by sixth-grade classmates. punitive damages, said Eve's attorney, City University of New York law professor Merrick Rossein. A case tried under California law ended earlier this fall with a girl awarded $500,000 in damages. Eve's lawsuit does not specify a dollar amount. "There is a difference between flirting and hurting," said lawyer Brooks Burdette of New York City, who also is representing Eve. "What happened in our case was systematic. It was a lot more than childhood horseplay." Eve claims 'her former school district 60 miles southwest of Albany failed to protect her from sexual harassment, violating Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibiting sex discrimination in schools. "The fact that it hurt the girls a lot and silenced them and prevented them from participating in the academic program wasn't recognized by the school," Rossein said. School officials have said they tried to correct any problems in Eve's sixth-grade class. The district argues that at any rate, the law does not apply to sexual harassment among children. Eve transferred to another district in March 1994 after the South Kortright board refused to move her to another sixth-grade class. Now 15, she attends a private boarding school in Massachusetts. "I'm not going to give them the satisfaction, you know, that they can get away with this," she said. A 1993 survey of more than 1,600 public school students in grades eight through 11 found that 85 percent of girls and 76 percent of boys had experienced some sort of sexual harassment, according to the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation, which funds research on girls and education. What's new is that children and parents are going to court. Litigation should be a last resort, said Verna Williams, an attorney with the National Women's Law Center. The long-term solution lies in training students and teachers about what kinds of behavior are permissible and providing counseling to persistent harassers, she said. "Sometimes it's not just a kiss on the cheek," Williams said. "Sometimes it's very, very serious and very, very damaging." 'I'm sparing the school/ pilot said before crash By The Associated Press RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — The last words of the pilot of a jetliner that crashed into a Sao Paulo neighborhood were, "I'm sparing the school," TV Globo reported Saturday. TV Globo said it talked with an Aeronautics Ministry official who listened to one of the flight recorders of TAM Flight 402, which crashed Thursday, killing all 96 people on board and six on the ground. The victims included three Americans. Pilot Jose Antonio Moreno, talking to airport control, intentionally veered away from a school packed with more than 1,000 students, TV Globo quoted the official as saying. The plane crashed instead into a residential neighborhood. Burials of passengers and crew members took place in several cities Saturday. The TAM Airlines Fokker-100, headed to Rio de Janeiro, crashed minutes after takeoff from Congonhas airport in Sao Paulo. The plane failed to gain altitude and slammed into the neighborhood, spilling burning jet fuel over cars, houses and apartments. The Aeronautics Ministry said the plane's two flight data recorders are being sent to the United States for analysis. A final report on the cause of the crash is expected in about three months. Airport engineers said they ran down the runway to try to stop the accelerating jetliner after spotting a braking malfunction that may have led to the crash, airport engineer Antonio Bueno told Globo TV, Brazil's largest private television network.

Shane is portraying a 5-year- old Salina murder victim in a production for the television show "America's Most Wanted." **** Because of a Journal error, two Salina South interceptions Friday night were incorrectly attributed to Troy St. Clair in Saturday's edition. Mike Newcomer intercepted the two passes in the Cougars' victory over Great Bend. TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up." — James 4:10
