CS Wednesday, April 19, 1995 local r:rv5 The Atlanta Journal The Atfarrta CoPSt;Wion MARTA gets approval for natural gas bus fleet By Peter Mantius STAFF WRITER '. MARTA's plan to roll out a fleet of natural gas-burning buses before the 1996 Olympics won unanimous approval from the state Public Service Commission on Tuesday, only a day after it seemed to be in jeopardy. The PSC agreed to let Atlanta Gas Light Co. contract with . MARTA to help finance up to 189 natural gas buses and to build a station to refuel them. "This is great news for Atlanta's air quality," said David R. , Jones, president and chief executive officer of the gas company. Buses fueled by natural gas don't pollute nearly as much as diesel-burning buses. MARTA's move to convert nearly one-third pf its 600 buses to a cleaner form of fuel should help improve air ' quality in Atlanta, which is rated by the Environmental Protection Racial hospital incident spurs protest, apology STAFF REPORTS AND NEWS SERVICES A March incident in which black hospital staffers were banned from a DeKalb County delivery room at the request of the birthing mother prompted a protest among workers, an apology from the head nurse and an admonition from the hospital administrator. v. "Such a request at DeKalb Medical Center is not appropriate and cannot or will not be honored," John R. Gerlach said in a March 31 internal memo, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. . . The white woman who gave birth was admitted to DeKalb Medical Center's maternity ward on March 27. Gerlach said workers complied with her request -that blacks be banned from caring for her and the baby. ' ' The incident prompted 54 nurses to sign a petition demanding the workers involved be punished and forced to apologize. Valdosta police cited for 'inept' probe , . ' The state has found no criminal intent in the Valdosta Police Department's investigation of a 1994 double homicide, although a re- ' view uncovered evidence of "substantial malpractice" by several officers, said state Attorney General Michael Bowers. "The investigation was handled in such an inept and reckless manner as to indicate possible intentional conduct by the Valdosta detectives," Bowers said Monday. "However, the evidence is insuffi- . cient to prove criminal intent to sustain a conviction." .vv The report by Richard Hyde, the attorney general's investigator, , focused on former Police Chief Charlie Spray, former Assistant Chief ; David Whitfield, former Maj. Remer Croft and Detective Carl Smith. It concerned their handling of the deaths of Donya Jones and Seth Cassotta, who were the former girlfriend and son of Valdosta patrol , Officer Maurice Cassotta Jr. -, , Investigators at the March 30, 1994, crime scene wrongly re-; ferred to the deaths as a murder-suicide and cleaned a bathtub where ' the bodies were found. Autopsies showed that both were homicide ' victims, and the scouring of the scene left little physical evidence. Cassotta was acquitted of murder charges in February. Spray resigned last week, and Whitfield and Croft were fired. Smith returned to work last month. CONSTRUCTION DAM BUILDING DELAYED: A faulty concrete mixture has de-'. layed construction of a dam at Rockdale County's $16 million Big Haynes Creek Reservoir for a second day. Engineers and construction officials met Tuesday to determine the depth pf the problem. "The construction people, when they were pouring the concrete, no-- deed it took a bit longer than it should to firm up," said Ron Simpson, : chairman of the Big Haynes Creek Impoundment Authority. The . "roller-compacted" dam, due for completion this summer, is constructed by mixing concrete and rock into a claylike mush that is bulldozed into a large monolith, layer by layer. Concrete work on the dam was halted Monday, Simpson said. He said he did not know when , i.t would resume. Work on the dam's lining was under way Tuesday, ; liOwever. Simpson said solutions to the problem could range from a . simple addition of concrete or support rods to "a bigger change in the ' mix." Engineers and the project manager for the dam were unavail- .able for comment Tuesday. ::: environment ! ! FREE ECOLOGY BOOKLET: Just in time for Earth Day, the Georgia Conservancy is offering a free 53-page booklet of activities, ; facts and experiments designed to help young people learn about the ; environment and ways to protect it. "It's designed for teachers and . for anybody who's interested in getting this for their Scout troop or their Sunday school class," said Carolyn Boyd Hatcher, the conser-' vancy's president. From backyard scavenger hunts to pollution pa-l trols to exploring a decomposing log, the book contains activities for would-be ecologists from age 5 to adult, Hatcher said. Free copies can be picked up at the Conservancy's Atlanta office, 1776 Peachtree t JN.W7 or mailed to those who send in $3 for postage and handling. Information 876-2900. """"" ) 5(0r reporq an(j news servjces Agency as one of the nation's 10 worst cities for dirty air. The PSC's action also clears the way for the completion of a refueling station off Perry Boulevard in time for the Olympics. The city expects to borrow some 2,000 buses some fueled by natural gas for the Games. As late as Monday, at least two commissioners were concerned that the cost of the project could be shifted to residential ratepayers. But they voted for it after the PSC staff and the Consumers Utility Counsel reported that risks to ratepayers are minimal. The project calls for MARTA to use up to 200 gas-burning buses, which would cost about $10 million more than the same number of diesel buses. The gas company has agreed to absorb S2.9 million of the price difference and pay $2.55 million to complete the refueling station. The woman's physician, Dr. Joyce Gann, and head nurse Mary Snider said they made a mistake, the Associated Press said. "I realize now that my passive approach became the unwitting tool for discrimination to occur," Snider wrote in her April 10 apology. "It was not my intention, but I take full responsibility for my mistake and apologize to all of you for the pain it caused." Teresa Nelson, director of the the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, said the hospital needs to develop a policy to protect its staff from discrimination by patients. "Clearly this incident showed a level of bigotry, and in the future I hope the hospital will support its staff," she said. "Quality should be the issue, not race." Gerlach has not said if the workers will be punished. Hospital officials declined to comment Tuesday. 38 tr Arturo Frondizi, former president of Argentina, 89 NEW YORK TIMES New York Arturo Frondizi, a former president of Argentina who bolstered the country's economy through a series of unpopular austerity measures during four tumultuous years in office from 1958 to 1962, died Tuesday in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was 89. His family said he died of a heart ailment. It is a reflection of the complexity of Argentine politics that Frondizi owed both his election in 1958 and his military ouster in 1962 to the support of exiled dictator Juan D. Peron, a man he had earlier bitterly opposed as a member of Congress and as a candidate for vice president on the Radical Civic Union ticket in 1951. Frondizi had a history as a doctrinare, liberal ideologue, but he was above all a pragmatist. He had consistently opposed Peron, a charismatic army colonel who was swept into power in 1946 and re-elected in 1951. After Peron was overthrown by the military in 1955 and his party was banned, Frondizi seized his chance. Recognizing that Peron's supporters, who formed the largest voting bloc, had nowhere else to turn, Frondizi curtailed his criticism of their leader and won Peron's tacit endorsement from exile, even as Frondizi was successfully courting the chief anti-Peron factions, the military, the Catholic Church, wealthy industrialists and even the Communists.
