m . si CI i I Rains no drop in the bucket for N.J. In the wake of two consecutive months of above- average rainfall, New Jersey is considering easing some of the strict water use restrictions imposed in 3 the northern part of the state. Department of Environmental Protection officials said 5.69 inches of rain fell on the state last month, compared with the normal 3.26 inches for June. The rainfall has boosted water levels in three of four key reservoirs in northern New Jersey from 50 to 78.3 of capacity. As a result, Gov. Thomas Kean said officials will meet next week to discuss easing the 50-gallon a-person a-day restriction. Meanwhile, New York City officials said the rainfall that helped New Jersey did little for the water shortage problems here. Spokesman Andrew McCarthy said the reservoirs that serve the city are farther inland, and did not receive the benefit of those rains. McCarthy said the water supply systems that serve the city are operating at 57.6 capacity, when they should be at 95.8. All current city water restrictions remain in effect. Randy Diamond Did to ax drug rap in 106th rejected A motion to dismiss marijuana charges against one of the reported victims of alleged stun gun torture by police in the 106th Precinct in Queens was rejected yesterday by the same Judge who last week dismissed a similar charge against another alleged victim. Refusing to dismiss the charge against Juan Rentas "in the interests of Justice," Acting Criminal Court : Judge Pearle Appleman indicated there was a difference between Kentas case and that of the other victim, Mark Davidson. Appleman said the undercover officer who allegedly bought marijuana from Davidson had failed to sign an affidavit identifying him as the seller. But in the Kentas case, Appleman said, the affidavit was signed. Appleman also said Rentas, 17, has a prior record; Davidson, 18, had never been in trouble. Reputed mob kin charged in assault The son of the reputed acting boss of the Gambino crime family was charged yesterday with assaulting a policeman during a brawl in a Howard Beach diner during which another cop was choked with a belt and beaten, authorities said. John Gotti, 21, of 85th St., Howard Beach, Queens, was released in his own recognizance following arraignment before Kew Gardens Criminal Court Judge Eli Lazarus, and ordered to return for a hearing July 10. The charges stem from a brawl Sunday at the Blue Fountain Diner, Cross Bay Blvd., Howard Beach. Gotti's father, also named John, is reportedly acting head of the Gambino family. Painter dies at construction site A 32-year-old painter was killed in a fall down an elevator shaft yesterday at the Marriott Hotel construction site near Times Square, police said. The worker was covering a glass partition with a plastic drop cloth on the sixth floor about 4:30 p.m. when he apparently lost his balance and plunged eight stories to a subbasement The victim's name was not revealed pending family notification. Police said he was employed by the L & L Painting Co. of Mineola, L.I. Still heat in panda romance Washington Days after their decade-old romance appeared to be on the rocks, America's two giant pandas surprised National Zoo keepers with a record triple tryst. The first mating between Ling-Ling, the female, and her partner, Hsing-Hsing, was recorded Sunday and two more encounters were observed yesterday, the zoo's Kate Taub said. IRA man accused in hotel bombing London Smiling and brandishing a clenched fist, Patrick Magee, 34, of Northern Ireland was charged yesterday with killing five people in an Irish Republican Army bombing that narrowly missed Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher last October at a hotel in Brighton, England. Also charged in the 30-minute session at south London's Lambeth Court were five people accused of conspiring, to cause explosions, an apparent reference to what police say were plans for an IRA bomb campaign in a dozen English resort towns this summer. Mexican pol kidnaped by Marxists Mexico City Five gunmen kidnaped Arnoldo Martinez Verdugo, the Unified Socialist Party's presidential candidate in 1982, as he left a research center yesterday, Interior Vice Minister Fernando Perez Correa said. Correa said the kidnapers were from the Party of the Poor, a very small Marxist radical group. CREDIT PROBLEMS!
