Red Bear family gets Carter-built home By Bob Mercer Capital Bureau EAGLE BUTTE - Emmanuel Red Bear worked as a heavy equipment operator before a back injury put him out of work.

Red Bear helped run a power saw, while his wife, Cheryl, gave a hand with the framing. Carter, a few months short of 70, looked like a professional carpenter as he hammered and occasionally took up a hand saw to fit short pieces of lumber. The former first lady, Rosalynn, stayed close by to help. "We can all come together and share our belief, no matter what church we believe in," Red Bear said. "This is what Habitat Is all about, GOOD MORNING Outside Partly cloudy: Today will be partly cloudy with highs near 80. Winds will be from the northwest at 15 to 25 mph.

The Carters and the Red Bears are among the estimated 1,400 volunteers gathered at this work site one mile southeast of Eagle Butte. Hundreds came from outside South Dakota. By Friday night they hope to have nailed together a new $1 million neighborhood on 160 acres donated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. For Carter, who left the White House in January 1981, this was the Uth year of his Habitat work camp.

But there's not proof enough to say whether Thomas Kueter, the man po? lice believe was the last person seen with the mother of three, knifed her tire, Capt. Doug Noyes said. Marcotte disappeared in the early-morning hours of June 24 from the Dyess Avenue wood processing plant, where she worked the night shift. She had called friend Vicky Riddle shortly after her shift ended at 12:30 a.m. to ask for a ride home. Marcotte told her that she had a flat tire, Riddle said. Heat, helps spa i iraiD!m funnel clouds From Journal Staff and Wire Reports Hot, humid weather on Monday spawned mid-afternoon thunderstorms, hail, runnel clouds and at least one lightning-caused fire in southwestern South Dakota. The fire, which started between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the Bobcat Canyon area on the east edge of Custer State Park, was spotted from the Mount Coolidge lookout tower. Park Director Rollie Noem said park crews responded quickly to the blaze, which turned out to be a fairly small grass fire. Crews had the fire under control before 5 p.m. A tornado watch was in effect for the eastern part of the state until 3 a.m. today. Big thunderstorms caused winds of 60 mph or more in Aberdeen and Pierre. Some damage was reported in Aberdeen. Another tornado watch was posted for 25 counties in the central part of the state Monday evening. The National Weather Service office in Rapid City received several reports of funnel clouds across western South Dakota - some touching down Monday afternoon. Apparently none of them caused any damage, according to early reports. One funnel cloud touched down 18 See Heat on page A2 rehejs KIGALI, Rwanda (AP) - Tutsi rebels declared victory Monday and planned to install a new government as millions more of their countrymen fled toward uncertain safety in neighboring nations. After 14 weeks of ethnic bloodshed, the Tutsi-dominated rebels said they had swept away the last Hutu gov Jupiter hit by huge fragments GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - The comet train struck Jupiter Monday with an explosion several times more powerful than all of the world's nuclear weapons, leaving black scars the size of Earth. A Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet fragment called G slammed into the gas bag-like planet and set off a fireball that was briefly brighter in some wavelengths than the whole planet. Some observing instruments watching from Earth 480 million miles away were momentarily blinded. Riddle told the Journal last week that Kueter pulled up outside the plant, Black Hills Molding, during the telephone conversation and offered Marcotte a ride. Kueter, who had once worked at the plant for a year, was a casual friend of Marcotte and her boyfriend Patrick Gleason, Gleason has said. Police have said that they believe she accepted that ride in Kueter's bronze 1975 Pontiac Le Mans. The next day, Kueter accompanied Gleason to the police station to report her missing but denied seeing her the night before, Noyes said. Kueter was killed four days later when a forklift crushed his skull as he worked alone at Forest Products Distributors, a wood products processing plant off South Highway 79.

"There is no need for anyone to flee Rwanda," .said Maj. Gen. Paul Kagame of the rebel Rwandan Patriotic Front. "We guarantee all Rwan- Fragment G was followed by an equally large fragment H, and at least two more of the 21 fragments of Shoemaker-Levy 9 are of similar size. By Monday afternoon, nine fragments had smashed into Jupiter since the bombardment started on Saturday. The last fragment, W, is expected to hit the planet Friday. Upcoming is a triple whammy. Beginning Wednesday, three fragments will slam into the planet's upper atmosphere at about the same spot over a 20-hour period. Kueter's death a suicide, Noyes said investigators believed that somebody stuck a knife in the sidewall of the left front tire of Marcotte's 1984 Dodge K-series car, based on the shape of the puncture mark. Noyes said police were awaiting further results from lab tests. He would not say whether Kueter was a suspect in Marcotte's disappearance before his death. "We're just going to keep investigating this disappearance, or death if that's what it turns out to be, until we have proven who's responsible," whether that is Thomas Kueter or somebody else, he said. Meanwhile, the Rapid City Police Department and the Pennington County Sheriff's department continue to search for Marcotte. Officials fear she might bedead, Noyes said.

Millions of refugees have fled for fear the rebels would try to avenge the slaughter of an estimated 200,000 to 500,000 people - most of them Tutsis - by Hutu militias. Thus far, there has been little evidence of widespread rebel reprisals against Hutus. What next? It's killer tacos now From Journal Wire Reports From the advocacy group that brought you killer kung pao chicken, killer lasagna and killer popcorn, now this: It's the taco salads that were really the problem! Yes amigos, just when you thought it was safe to eat the whole enchilada, the Center for Science in the Public Interest - the nutrition police who blew the whistle on Chinese and Italian restaurants and movie theater popcorn Monday released a study about Mexican food. The biggest problem identified by CSPI is that unlike Chinese and Italian restaurants, where it's easy to get a healthy meal by ordering wisely, there are few lower fat options at Mexican places. It's beef chimichangas and die. - At a jammed press conference, Michael Jacobson, executive director of CSPI and maestro of the 30-second fat bite, said that while "Mexican food is not seen as a health food, the numbers will shock anyone." Of 15 popular Mexican dishes, the survey found the only "safe bet" to be chicken fajitas with flour tortillas - but only when eaten without the trimmings. The worst choice was thcchiles rellenos platter. "You might as well eat a stick of butter and one and a half teaspoons of salt," said Bonnie Liebman, director of nutrition for the center. Herman Cain, president of the National Restaurant Association, said the study "feeds the nation's paranoia about the food system" and "may be far worse than serving the nation an extra gram of fat from time to. time." it i". i Hi I .V 1, III b 2L
