-THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1987—3 $3.7 million will buy you Sonoma town ASTI (AP) — Comedian Pat Paulson's town is for sale, but he'd like to stay on, even though the natives, all seven of them, are getting restless. The sale was forced because Paulsen and his wife, Jane, have decided to end their 28 years of marriage. The $3.7 million price tag includes the Pat Paulsen Winery, a roomy ranch house, three residences, a deli, apartment, a wine tasting room and 20 acres of prime vineyard land that produce award-winning wines. Would the buyer try to impeach Mayor Paulsen? "Impeachment? No, what will happen is, I will go to Paris and my son, Justin 'Baby Doc' Paulsen, will take over in my place. He's a ruthless kid. It will be a bloodless coup," Paulsen said. "Actually, I'm quite worried about the Asti- nistas. I can't get them to march in the morning." The deadpan comedian said it would be crazy for someone to buy the winery and town and kick him out. "I think I'd have to be retained," he told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat in a telephone interview from Oklahoma City, where his one-man comedy act is appearing. "I think I'm somewhat integral to the win- cry, so I'd hope I could retain a certain percentage." Paulsen built his winery into a nationally recognized brand using humor to gain attention. His Refrigerator White is an inexpensive table wine with a riotous label. Included in the sale are 51.19 acres, 20 of them planted to Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The winery has 8,400 square feet of space and an inventory valued at $1 million. The winery brand, distributed in 42 states and Japan, sold 19,037 cases in 1986 and can produce 28,000 cases. Last year the winery had gross sales of $1 million. Asked about the prospect of having to leave Asti, Paulsen sighed and said, "Well, I was only using Asti as a stepping city anyway. "But I'm running for president, you know-I hope to lead America into the past. And if elected president, I will ban all competing wineries." BLM giving away free colt As part of the wild horse and burro adoption to be held in Santa Rosa Sept. 25 through 27, the Bureau of Land Management will be givin, away a young colt to a qualift owner. Approximately 100 wild horses and burros will be brought to the Chris Beck Arena at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, where they will be available for adoption. The animals have been rounded up on public rangelands in Nevada and California and will be trucked to Santa Rosa. In addition to the usual animals that will be available for an adoption fee of $125 for horses and S75 for burros, interested individuals may enter a drawing for a free "bummer" colt, a stray colt that is less than six months old. The winner must have adequate facilities and the financial means to give the animal a good home. The drawing will take place at 11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 27. Entry forms will be available at the 3-day adoption, which runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Additional information is available by writing or calling the Bureau of Land Management, 555 Leslie Street, Ukiah, CA 95482, (707) 462-3873. "All I need Is a little TLC (tender loving care)," says this young colt. Suspected terrorist lured into U.S. hands WASHINGTON (AP)—American agents working overseas lured a suspected Lebanese Shiite hijacker into a boat, arrested him and brought him back to the United States in what U.S. officials described as a new phase in the battle against terrorism. "It's our intention to find terrorists and go after them wherever they are," a senior Justice Department official said Thursday in announcing the arrest of Fawaz Youru's of Beirut. He is accused of masterminding the 1985 hijacking of a Jordanian jetliner with four Americans aboard. In an investigation code-named Operation Goldenrod, Youru's was spotted several weeks ago by U.S. intelligence agencies, placed under surveillance and finally, at an unspecified port on the Mediterranean Sea, lured aboard a small boat piloted by FBI agents. "Let's say we rented it (the boat) for awhile, one senior Justice Department official told reporters. After the boat motored into international waters, Younis was arrested and transferred to the U.S. aircraft carrier Saratoga in the Mediterranean near the island of Corsica. He was flown to Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington on Thursday. Responding to a question at the briefing, the official said "you bet" when asked whether U.S. authorities are actively trying to track other terrorists suspected of harming Americans overseas with the intention of arresting them and bringing them back to the United States. When asked whether Younis might become part of a swap involving U.S. hostages being held in Lebanon, the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, emphasized that the U.S. government's intention is to put Younis on trial in U.S. courts. "Any terrorist attack on American nationals or American property will be investigated and prosecuted whenever there is a basis to do so under U.S. law, provided that they are not effectively prosecuted and punished elsewhere," Attorney General Edwin Meese HI told the press briefing. But unlike many other terrorist incidents, the one in which Younis is charged wasn't directed at the United States or Israel. Amid extremely tight security, Younis appeared before a U.S. magistrate in Washington on charges of hostage-taking, conspiracy and destruction of an aircraft, which could result in a term of life imprisonment if he is convicted. Younis pleaded innocent to the June 11,1985, hijacking of the jetliner at Beirut, on which two U.S. citizens and two U.S. resident foreigners were traveling. Younis was ordered held without bail and was taken to an undisclosed location. Younis, is a "full-time employee of the Amal militia and works for Nabih Berri," another senior Justice Department official told the press briefing. Bern is Lebanon's justice minister and also is leader of the Amal militia, a group of Shiite Moslems allied with Syria. The Amal militia is considered to be more moderate than the Iranian- backed Hezbollah, an organization which is believed to hold some of the U.S. hostages being held Lebanon. in Bork accused of flip-flopping on important issues WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork, declaring "I don't believe in a passive court," said today that judges should be active in defending individual liberties even while following judicial restraint. On the fourth day of his confirmation hearings, Bork continued his attempt to assure a divided Senate Judiciary Committee that he would uphold individual freedoms. Opponents of the federal appellate judge have tried to paint him as too restrictive in some areas, and as one who changed his views in other areas in order to win confirmation. Under questioning from Sen. Howell Heflin, D-Ala., a key undecided senator, Bork said, "I don't want anybody to think courts should be passive and not defend individual liberties." "Courts should be active in that field," he said, while being careful not to encroach on legislative functions. "I don't believe in a passive court that just sits there and defers to everybody." On Thursday, Bork said he is ready to accept legal doctrines he once denounced. That led to accusations that he is flip-flopping to win confirmation to the Supreme Court. "I don't want a confirmation conversion," Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., told Bork on Thursday. Each senator was getting his third crack at questioning Bork today. On Thursday, the nominee endured sharp attacks not only from Leahy, an expected opponent, and Sen. Edward Kennedy, an announced opponent, but from Sen. Arlen Specter, who has said he is undecided. Specter, R-Pa., accused Bork of a willingness to abandon his sacred legal principle of "original intent" — the theory that judges must follow the intent of the Constitution's framers. To make matters worse for Bork, Heflin and Sen. Dennis DeConcini, D-Ariz., said during breaks in the hearing that they arc also concerned by Bork's apparent changes in position on issues such as equal protection for women and freedom of speech. For his part, Bork shot back at Leahy that "I have a lot of positions in the past where I have not converted." When Kennedy, D-Mass., accused him of advocating unlimited presidential power, Bork countered: "That is a most unfair charac- terisation of my views." The hearing turned poignant when it touched on the death of Bork's first wife, Claire, in 1980. That happened after Leahy first criticized Bork for never providing free legal advice to the poor, and then pointed out that he earned about $600,000 in consulting fees from 1979 to 1981 while a Yale professor. "Those are QIC only years I ever made any money in consulting," Bork said. "There was a reason I (needed) the money but I don't want to go into it here." Bork supporter Gordon Humphrey, R-N.H., refusing to let the matter rest there, asked, "But were those years in which you engaged in outside employment years which coincided with heavy medical bills in your family?" Bork, his voice breaking, replied in one word: "Yeah." In Specter's exchange with the nominee, the lawmaker said, "What troubles me is the very significant pronounced shifts" by Bork in areas such as free speech and sex discrimination. Bork, for instance, said he now accepts as reality — but still disagrees with—a Supreme Court ruling that permits protesters to advocate lawbreaking.
