D 1 17 1 (WJ n r' OCTOBER 26, 1993 The Conservative Party Is left in tatters as the separatist Bloc Quebecois captures second in elections TORONTO (AP) - In an election that rewrote the political map of Canada, Jean Chretien's Liberals rolled to an unexpectedly strong victory and the separatist Bloc Que-becois emerged as the second most powerful party. Prime Minister Kim Campbell's Progressive Conservatives - who won stunning victories in 1984 and 1988 under Brian Mulroney -crashed Monday, holding on to a mere two seats and leaving the party in tatters. Campbell couldn't muster enough votes to retain her own seat. In an equally stunning development, the Bloc Quebecois (pronounced kay-bec-KWA) won Too much salt, fat in school lunches At least one local district (staking steps to make hot lunch more nutritious By Kathy Walsh Nufer Post-Crescent staff writer Children in Menasha's elementary schools sat down today to a hot lunch of spaghetti with meat sauce, breadsticks with sauce, fresh tossed salad, applesauce and peanut butter cookies. The meal represents the happy medium area school districts seek to strike in serving foods kids like and what's nutritious, said district food services director Vera Mister. "We've tried to ease kids into better eating," she said, citing her nutrition degree which she takes seriously, "but we have to compete with commercial foods kids eat at home." , Even so, there will no doubt be a bigger push nationwide to get school lunch providers to pay more attention to healthy eating. Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy announced Monday the results of a survey of 545 schools last year that found school lunches contain too much salt and fat. While tasty, both are risk factors for cancer, heart disease and other ailments. Although the U.S. Department of Agriculture helped set the recommended limits for how much fat and sodium people should eat, it hasn't required those limits in school lunches. Government guidelines say that no more than 30 of daily calories should come from fat, with no more than 10 of daily calories from saturated fat, and that people should eat no more than 2,400 milligrams of sodium a day. But the 1992 survey found that the lunches offered to students derived 38 of their calories from fat, with 15 from saturated fat. The survey, by Mathematical Policy Research Inc. of Princeton, N.J., also found that the lunches gave students 1,479 milligrams of sodium, nearly two-thirds the daily limit from just one meal. "I've been cutting back on fat for the last eight years, and on sugar for the last 15 years," said Mister of the survey results. She could not give an exact breakdown of fat, salt and sugar content in the meals right now, but thinks she is close to 25 on fat. "I can't fathom us serving 38." Among the practices she has instituted are not buttering bread, not adding salt to items such as french fries, using ground turkey when possible, substituting applesauce for oil and cutting sugar by one-third in recipes, and serving more fresh items. i The USDA has been ordered to double the fresh fruit and vegetables it buys for school lunches and legislation has been introduced that would require the lunches to meet dietary guidelines. The Associated Press contributed to this report. enough support in French-speaking Quebec to squeak by the Reform Party, based in Alberta, to capture the privileged role of official opposition in the House of Commons. Voters in this country of 27 million turned to Chretien because he campaigned on a promise to deal with the No. 1 issue: creating jobs to tackle Canada's 11.2 unemployment.

Reinhard believes her husband is still alive A Clintonville woman theorizes Craig Williamson is disoriented from a blow to the head By Andy Thompson Post-Crescent staff writer CLINTONVILLE - Christine Reinhard realized that the police officers were only doing their job. But it still hurt deeply when Reinhard was asked in mid-September whether she had anything to do with the disappearance of her husband, Craig D. Williamson. "It was very traumatic," she said Monday from the rural Clintonville home she shared with her husband until he vanished during a business trip to Colorado in late August. "I was asked very intimate questions. I was asked if I killed my husband or if I aided and abetted," said Reinhard. "I had to go through that." i ; i rail i i FORECAST t !ICJ.IJV.

The Conservative defeat was so vast that it could not be attributed to any one miscue. In the East, they were blown out of the picture by Liberals; in the West their seats went to Reform, a party more rightist than the Conservatives that preached deficit elimination to taxpayers fed up with government waste. The Bloc Quebecois, which seeks indepen-for Canada's only French- dence majority province, grabbed their electorate in Quebec.

Christine Reinhard Clintonville Even though she was distraught at the time, Reinhard knew that police in Colorado Springs needed to ask her some tough questions while she was hooked up to a polygraph to eliminate her as a suspect in her husband's disappearance. "I know they just had to do this," she said. "(But) it was cruel."

But she stumbled and then ground to a halt under the weight of Mulroney's disastrous economic legacy and the worst-run campaign in recent history, "Success was not ours tonight," Campbell said, but added, "Our time in the sun will come again." In his victory speech today, Chretien promised to curb the Liberals' reputation for spending, put Canada's unsolved bickering between French and English on the back shelf and focus on the economy. "We have to concentrate all our efforts on the economy to create jobs, to have growth, to give dignity to the workers who want to work across this land," he said. But how that related to the North American Free Trade Agreement with the United States and Mexico wasn't clear. Chretien has said he wants to renegotiate parts of a free trade agreement that went into effect four years ago. I III llltt'H.WIi.

Williamson, who will turn 49 on Nov. 3, last spoke to Reinhard on Aug. 30 from a Super 8 motel in Colorado Springs.

Reinhard went to Colorado on Sept. 14 to get some answers. During that three-day stay she met with police and familiarized herself with the area.

Repap, LS Power seeking solution for lost project The governor's off ice gets involved in trying to salvage Repap Wisconsin's cogeneration project inKimberly By Arlen Boardman Post-Crescent business editor The owners of LS Power and an aide to Gov. Tommy Thompson are meeting with Repap Wisconsin Inc. in talks that might lead to a deal between LS Power and Repap. Mike Liebelson and Mike Segal, founders, managing directors and majority owners of LS Power, met Monday in the offices of Gary Fen-ton, senior vice president of Repap Coated Paper Operations. They also are meeting today, and Patrick Goss, an aide to Thompson, is in the meetings. Fenton and Clarence Heller, vice president of LS Power, confirmed the meetings. They said the goal is 'Villain' Price, 82, is dead The actor is most remembered for his horror roles LOS ANGELES (AP) - Vincent Price, whose gaunt face and creepy voice put chilis in such thrillers as "The Raven" and "House of Wax," was a modern-day Renaissance man who dedicated his life to the arts, friends and relatives say. Price, 82, died Monday night at his Hollywood Hills home after a five-year struggle with lung cancer. "I think it's going to be a big loss because he gave so much through all the characters he played," said comedian Milton Berle, who knew Price from the actor's appearances on Berle's Texaco Star Theater in the 1950s. Price was amused by his reputation as the perfect villain. "I'm not the least bit disappointed that I'm remembered primarily for my horror roles," he said in 1985. From the beginning of his film career in 1938, Price appeared in a variety of films, from the sublime ("Laura," "The Ten Commandments") to the ridiculous ("Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine"). Price exploited his reputation as a villain by contributing a ghostly voice to Michael Jackson's hit record, "Thriller," playing the creator of "Edward Scissorhands" in the 1990 film and hosting the PBS series "Mystery" during the 1980s. But family and friends remembered Price as a warm man who cared passionately about the arts.

Fenton and his boss, George Petty, chairman of Repap Enterprises, protested the loss of the project in a letter to Thompson. That apparently triggered intervention by Thompson, who talked with Petty and met Oct. 11 with Heller and the LS Power owners. Fenton said the goal is to help Repap solve its old boiler problem economically and to allow the LS Pow-erUW-Whitewater project to proceed. Fenton and Heller said one issue is LS Power finding a buyer for the new steam generation equipment Repap had purchased in anticipation of its cogeneration project with Wisconsin Electric Power Co.

''-ftp I w "Some people remember him for the horror movies or the television shows, but his mission in life and the thing he believed in was the power of the arts," the actor's daughter, Victoria Price, said from a Los Angeles-bound airplane to join her family. Price wrote several art books ("I Like What I Know") and wrote about cooking ("A Treasury of Great Recipes ). He also founded a college art gallery. "I've just done everything, but I feel that I've had a good life," Price said. "I haven't been as 'successful' as some people, but I've certainly had more fun." Price proved a valuable character actor in such films as "Song of Ber-nadette," "Wilson," "The Eve of St. Mark," "Leave Her to Heaven" and "Dragonwyck." He also appeared in "Up in Central Park," "Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man" and "The Three Musketeers." .
