-THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- SUNDAY, JUNE 27, 1993 — A-9 California bases hit hard by base closing commission COMMISSION ACTIONS FOR CALIFORNIA By JOHN ANTCZAK Th« Associated Prsss The federal base closing commission voted Saturday to shut down California's El Toro and Tustin Marine air stations and to move some Navy facilities from the Miramar Naval Air Station to other Navy bases. The Defense Base Closing and Realignment Commission voted to close the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station despite an 11th hour appeal by Southern California congressmen to spare the base. -Shutting down El Toro would cost thousands of jobs, lawmakers say. "This is extremely unfortunate and unwelcome news for the people of those communities who have worked so hard to support those bases," said Dan Schnur, spokesman for Gov. Pete Wilson. The commission, meeting in Nixon weeps as wife, Pat, is remembered for courage YORBA LINDA (AP) — Former first lady Pat Nixon was remembered Saturday as a woman of dignity and quiet courage in a life of pain and power. "Few women in public life have suffered as she has suffered and done it with such grace," said the Rev. Billy Graham. At the morning service, an ashen Nixon walked into the garden with Graham. The former president was stricken with emotion as he saw the mourners, putting his hand over his mouth and crying. Marines carried the casket to the flower-bedecked bier. Graham stood at the podium and began to speak as the sun poked through overcast skies for the first time. About 250 mourners gathered at the Nixon presidential library for the service, which was attended by two other former presidents — Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan— and several members of Congress, including Sens. Bob Dole, John Chafee, Orrin Hatch and Mark Hatfield Many mourners were synonymous with the tumultuous years of the Nixon White House — Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig, C.G. "Bebe" Rebozo, H.R. Haldeman, Charles Colson and former ambassador Walter Annenberg. Nixon resigned Aug. 9, 1974, amid the Watergate scandal. Graham and other speakers remembered Mrs. Nixon for her inspiration. "To know Pat Nixon is to know a woman of compassion, courage and character," said Cynthia Hardin Milligan, a member of the library board and a family friend. Milligan noted the Secret Service code name for Mrs. Nixon was "Starlight." "It was especially appropriate," she said. "She was fun to be with. She had a great sense of adventure." Former Sea George McGovern, who was defeated by Nixon in a bitter 1972 presidential campaign, said he admired Mrs. Nixon. "I wanted to be here," said McGovem. "I've always admired Mrs. Nixon. She is one of the least pretentious public figures I've ever known. She had a lot of courage." California Gov. Pete Wilson and Senate Minority Leader Dole of Kansas also delivered eulogies. Mrs. Nixon, 81, who died Tuesday of lung cancer at her New Jersey home, was interred in the garden of the library, 35 miles southeast of Los Angeles. The former president escorted his wife's body back to California Friday. Baby bleeds to death after circumcision CAROL CITY, Fla. (AP) — A 5-month-old boy bled to death two days after he was circumcised, a medical examiner said. After Demetrius Manker's mother took him home from the hospital, she called the doctor about the bleeding and was told it was normal, she said. The bleeding didn't get any worse the next day and the infant didn't have a fever, so Louise Manker said she didn't call Dr. Rodney D. Young again. Demetrius became sluggish on Wednesday and died that afternoon, Manker said. "The whole time he was with me all be did was smile," Manker said. "When I went to the hospital to see him after he died, the smile was § till there," Dr. Charles Wetli, Dade County's deputy chief medical examiner, said the boy might have bad a blood coagulation defect, such as hemophilia. The death is being investigated. Young did not return a reporter's telephone call to bis office. Washington, also voted to move Miramar's "top gun" school for the Navy's elite corps of pilots to the Fallen Naval Air Station in Nevada. Other Navy facilities would move from Miramar to the Lemoore and North Island Naval air facilities in California. For Tustin, the commission voted to keep the base closed and to move its helicopters to North Island, Miramar and Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base in Oceanside. The votes came a day after the commission decided to keep open a Long Beach shipyard but to close a big submarine yard and two Navy stations on San Francisco Bay. "We have done our jobs. We have won the Cold War. It's time for a change and so it's goodbye," said Joe A. Tannarome, 41, a mechanical engineer for 19 years at Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo. "How would you feel if... your boss said, 'You've been doing your job so well that you've put the competition out of business, so we don't need you anymore.' " Mare Island, which has been in business 139 years, the Alameda Naval Air Station and Treasure Island Naval Station were all recommended for closure in voting Friday by the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission. The recommendations, still in progress, go to Clinton for approval or rejection. Facilities outside the Bay Area fared better Friday. The Long Beach Naval Shipyard was spared and McClellan Air Force Base in Sacramento avoided a closure recommendation despite concern that it isn't fully used. The Mare Island vote hit hard in Vallejo, where 6,369 civilians and 181 military personnel work primarily on maintenance and repair of the Navy's nuclear submarines and the annual payroll is about $186 million. "Even when you've been in an uphill battle for a long, long time, it's a shock," said Vallejo Mayor Tony Intinoli. Mare Island creates jobs for another 23,000 people in surrounding areas and closing its gates could create unemployment rates up to 32 percent in Vallejo and 23 percent in Fairfield, Vacaville and Napa County, he said. "I feel kind of down in the dumps right now," said Robert Moore, manager of Electrical Supply of Vallejo, which had nearly $480,000 worth of yard-related orders last year.
