CM OTomftr9 0Dft 1F1F fiEo kmh y&& o a n o o in CN a o if) , THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SACRAMENTO, Calif. The sexual misconduct allegations against Arnold Schwarzenegger in the closing days of his campaign could haunt him in office. Activists are talking about pursuing legal action against the governor-elect, and more women could come forward. Schwarzenegger has called the allegations "old news," but the California attorney general thinks a criminal investigation is justified. And while Schwarzenegger tries to appear gubernatorial, his behavior has become a regular joke on late-night TV and in the comics, with "Doonesbury" depicting the former action hero as a giant groping hand. Some in the state capital are not willing to let it rest State Sen. Jackie Speier, a Democrat, said Schwarzenegger should take the same half-day sexual harassment training course required of other public workers. "I think that all of us in public service have a responsibility to know what the laws of the state are with regard to sexual harassment," said Speier, who drafted the law after the Legislature was hit with a series of harassment lawsuits. Some say the issue is shaping how Schwarzenegger assembles his administration. After 16 women said he had groped or talked dirty to them, Schwarzenegger apologized during his campaign for "behaving badly sometimes" and vowed to be a champion for women as governor. He has moved to put several women in key posts, such as a nationally respected financial analyst to audit the state's books, and naming 22 women to his 68-member transition team. Appointing women is a good way to get past the controversy, said Sheri Annis, a former aide. "Arnold shouldn't appear to pander to women it would make it more obvious that he's trying to make up for past indiscretions," she said. "But one of the best ways for people to get over the issue is for him to hire a fair amount of top women in his administration." REPORT T 3 U.S. Kenya embassy was targeted in June NAIROBI, Kenya Al Qaeda planned to destroy the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi in June with a truck bomb and a hijacked plane loaded with explosives, according to a Kenyan police report. The report, based on an interrogation of a terror suspect, could explain why the U.S. Embassy was closed June 20-24 and why Kenyan officials banned flights from June 20 to July 8 to and from Somalia, a lawless neighbor and suspected haven for terrorists. The targeted embassy was built to replace one destroyed in 1998 by an Al Qaeda car bomb, which killed 219 people, including 12 Americans. A captured Al Qaeda suspect who described the plot to attack the embassy in June, Salmin Mohammed Khamis, is among six men whose murder trial starts Monday for bombing a Kenyan hotel outside Mombasa in 2002. Sports boost tab WASHINGTON The rising cost of sports programs is a leading factor behind the rocketing price of cable TV, federal researchers found in a new study. American cable companies' costs for sports programming rose about 59 the last three years, while all programming rose an average of 34, according to the General Accounting Office. The report rejected the idea of letting consumers select individual channels as a way to cut cable prices, saying the extra equipment needed would increase costs and niche channels could disappear. The report found competition from other cable operators or satellite services resulted in lower rates and better service, saying consumers who have a choice of operators pay 15 less than those who don't. Double tragedy NOME, Alaska Two young Alaska brothers died on the same day a newborn found not breathing and a 3-year-old hit by a sport utility vehicle. "It is a very sad story," said Nome Police Chief Ralph Taylor. Catherine Kakaruk, the children's mother, discovered when she woke up Thursday that her 6-dayold son, Brandon, was not breathing. The baby was sleeping in the bed with his mother. About 6V2 hours later, the mother called police to report that her 3-year-old son had been hit by a vehicle. Jacob Kakaruk was struck after running into the street near where he lived. Sunspot surge DENVER A geomagnetic storm spawned by a giant eruption of gas on the sun reached the Earth's upper atmosphere yesterday, interfering with high-frequency airline communications but causing no major problems, federal officials said. Difficulties could last for up to two weeks. "This is not a super solar storm," said Larry Combs, a space weather forecaster with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Environment Center. The storm, called a "coronal mass ejection," is a mass of solar gas that swept toward Earth at 2 million mph. The usual cycle for such a storm is every 11 years; this one was expected to hit three years ago. Cuba: Nice try HAVANA Cuba's foreign minister welcomed the U.S. Senate's vote this week to ease restrictions on American travel here, but said he doubted President Bush would sign it "It is another sign that both houses of Congress favor a political change toward Cuba," Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque said. But he predicted that Bush would veto the measure, as the White House has indicated. News Wire Services The lights, the crowds, the ... bullets The Crossroads of the World became a crime scene early today after gunmen shot a man in the leg on bustling 42nd St., cops said. The gunfire erupted at 12:05 a.m. in front of the Ford Center for the Performing Arts, where the Broadway musical "42nd Street" is playing. Police said two suspects fled into the nearby Times Square subway station, where a myriadof lines converge. Transit officials said there was no significant disruption of service. The victim was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center. David Caban, 34, of Flatbush, Brooklyn, saw the aftermath of the shooting. "A lot of cop cars were pulling up. An ambulance pulled up," he said. "People were blase. They were walking along as though nothing happened. It's a shame someone had to get hurt." , . , r . , Tom Raftery Church is Divine, not historic The City Council refused to bless the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine with a designation as a historical landmark. Yesterday's 45-to-0 vote threw cold water on a proposed $300 million development the strapped cathedral hopes to launch with Columbia University on part of its 11.3-acre tract in Morningside Heights. The designation approved in June by the city Landmarks Preservation Commission covered just the cathedral and would not have stymied development on surrounding property. City Councilman Bill Perkins, whose district includes the church, said landmark-ing part of the property would violate the spirit of the process. While the Council rejection won't block the development, it might slow it down, and it denies the cathedral the protection of the city's tough preservation law. Officials of the sprawling, 111-year-old Gothic church, the world's biggest cathedral and the seat of the New York Episcopal Diocese, said they will press ahead with development discussions with Columbia. Robert Davis, president of the cathedral's board, said the church, at Amsterdam Ave. and 1 12th St., lost $ 1 million last year and has put off $20 million of maintenance. "The roof of the cathedral leaks, and when there's a bad rain we've been putting pots out," he said.
