FMTF.RSAL PROGllAMS They wish to be an Oscar Mayer winner MADISON (AP) - It took only 30 seconds of Christopher Karandjeff's life last week, but it might make him a star. Christopher, 5, was one of about 200 boys and girls who sang their cute little hearts out before the camera at the Oscar Mayer Talent Search a week ago. With a Wienermobilc as a backdrop, Christopher definitely looked like the all-Amcrirnn kid company officials were looking for. In his overalls and cocked hat, Christopher, the fifth child who tried out that afternoon, looked 1 every bit the professional before the camera as he sang the Oscar Mayer Wiener Jingle (You know: "Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener"), complete with (the hand gestures pantomimed by ' his mom, Jana Karandjeff, of Waunakee. "The guy from Oscar Mayer said he's got the look," she said. '' "It's No. 5 all the way!" exclaimed Joni Nygard of Middleton, a friend of the Karandjeff family who said she would act as Christopher's agent if he won. Christopher has some pretty VIADUCT From Pane IB Construction of the nearly three-mile trail wouldn't begin until 19, Statz said. If the county did use the bridge, it would likely put up a chain-link fence on each side, he added. ' I But who would it get permission from? RAMAC Executive Director Roger Caron has asked the city's Public Works and Services Committee to convene a meeting to come up with a plan for the viaduct. He said his request was prompted by a woman's complaint about graffiti on the viaduct. She called the city first but the ity referred her to RAMAC, he said. But Caron doesn't want to keep getting calls about graffiti on MADISON (AP)-A bill allowing parents to send their children to any public school they choose receives a public hearing Tuesday in the Assembly. The plan by Reps. Marc Duff, R -New Berlin, and Charles Coleman, R-Whitewater, would take effect with the 1996-97 school year. The only limit on the program would be a ceiling on the number of out-of-district pupils a school district had to accept.

Almost every child some barelytall enough to reach the micrhonc could have been "the otic" Twms and sibling acts abounded, and some kids brought their own props, including a violin, a small guitar and you guessed it a hot dog. It was hard to see who was having more fun, the kids singing or the parents clicking away their cameras. "Fortunately, I'm not the one doing the judging because so many of them are so cute," said Melanie McCullough, one of the college-age "hot doggers" who travel with the Wienermobilc. She filmed the potential stars for the audition. This was the first time Oscar Mayer has conducted a public talent search, Wienermobile manager Russell Whitacre said. The four tryouts were considered dry runs to gauge the respoiise. Oscar Mayer will send six Wienermobilcs to 50 cities across the nation this summer to find that special boy or girl between 4 and 12 years old. Out of the 100.000 children , company officials expect to dispute, lingers on Lathrop a bridge he doesn't think RAMAC owns. However, at one time it did. RAMAC and Downtown Racine Corp. formed a partnership in about 1980 called Railroad Property Associates. The partnership bought the Milwaukee Rrffld right-of-way from Willow Road to Racine's lake-front. , The partnership's purpose was to sell off land to adjacent businesses and homeowners. Any remaining property in the city was deeded to the city when the partnership was dissolved about eight years ago, according to Caron. He said Railroad Property sold the right-of-way at Lathrop Avenue to Wisconsin Electric. But Wisconsin Electric officials claim they did not buy the viaduct itself only the land along the right-of-way.

He fractured his skull, collapsed a lung and broke a wrist in two places. , In the days after the mishap. Jerry Anderson and neighbors Vickie and Terry Merlins demanded the city do something about the dangerous viaduct, but were told it does not pose a significant danger. Deputy City Attorney Daniel Wright said this week the city's investigation into ownership of the span concluded that it is owned by RAMAC.

"Wisconsin Electric does not own that viaduct." he said. "We bought all the property on each side, but we did not buy the bridge. We specifically excluded the viaduct from any purchase agreement." Meanwhile, the viaduct remains without a fence or signs to keep people off. "It just irritates the heck out of me that no one owns it," Vickie Mertins said. "The graffiti's terrible.
