Sixty-five percent of the Democrats and 72 percent of the Republicans answered that question with a yes. Woman killed as truck goes off bridge SACRAMENTO (AP) — One woman was killed and another injured when a drawbridge operator failed to lower traffic-control arms and a pickup truck plunged into the Sacramento River, police said. LL Larry Gibbs said Sunday that a man who was in the truck was missing after the incident late Saturday night. There were also reports that a transient dove into the river to try to help and may also be missing, police said. Gibbs said the incident took place when the bridge operator raised the bridge to let a tour boat sail up river and did not lower traffic-control arms designed to keep vehicles from driving into the water. The driver could face criminal charges, the lieutenant added. "He intentionally hit the override switch, which did not engage the arms and as a result the arms did not come down," Gibbs said. "He was in a hurry," Gibbs added. "He had been on the job two weeks and was in a hurry to get off work." The pickup truck ran off one end of the raised bridge and plunged into the water. A woman on a passing houseboat dove in and rescued a 20-year-old Sacramento woman who was riding in the back of the truck. Lucas: Lawyers must adapt LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chief Justice Malcolm Lucas told the state's judges and lawyers they must "adapt to the demanding workload we face" and endorsed the governor's plan for judges to question prospective jurors. Lucas made the comments Sunday in his State of the Judiciary speech to the State Bar and a separate talk to the California Judges Association here. It was Lucas' first speech since his recent operation for colon cancer, surgery he has described as routine and successful. He told applauding bar delegates he was "well and happy to be back at work," and told reporters later he lost 20 pounds on a diet prescribed by his doctors. One of the few specifics mentioned by Lucas in his speech was Dcukmejian's push to shift pretrial questioning of jurors from lawyers to judges, approved by the Legislature as a pilot program despite resistance from defense lawyers groups. Lucas, saying jury selection sometimes takes longer than a trial, noted that judges ask the questions in federal courts, where he served as a judge for 12 years before Deukmejian named him to the state Supreme Court in 1984. Clinics cut abortion services LOS ANGELES (AP) — Soaring malpractice and fire insurance costs have halted abortion services at some clinics — a result that arson fires, threats and years of controversy had failed to achieve. Some women's health clinics said they have been unable to buy malpractice insurance, or have seen 400-percent rate hikes in the past few years because they offer abortion or prenatal services considered risky by insurers. Because they work on generally small budgets, some clinics have cut services to their mainly low-income clients to deal with the higher rates. "It's a terrble crisis," said Lois Schoenbraun, spokeswoman for the Washington, D.C.-based National Abortion Federation. Lawyers support plan for doctor-aided suicide LOS ANGELES (AP) — A group of lawyers narrowly approved a resolution supporting "doctor-assisted suicide," which would allow physicians to give terminally ill patients a prescription for a drug dose that would cause instant death. After an intense debate, delegates to the State Bar Association's annual meeting voted 282-239 on Sunday to direct the organization's Board of Governors to back a euthanasia bill before the Legislature. The final decision on the proposal is Shooting victim, 13, describes her attacker LOS ANGELES (AP) — A 13-year-old girl who survived a kidnapping and shooting that left her best friend dead has provided a police artist with a description of her attacker, authorities said. The girl, identified by the Los Angeles Herald Examiner as Melissa Clark of Cnatsworth, remained hospitalized Sunday under police guard. Authorities were not releasing her condition or the name of the hospital, said Los Angeles police Officer William Wolleck. "She is a spunky 13-year-old girl who, although she is in such pain, has done her best to help," said police Lt. Warren Knowles. Melissa and her best friend, Wendy Masuhara, 14, were kidnapped by a couple in a 20-foot motorhome as they were walking near their homes in the Chalsworth area of the San Fernando Valley early Saturday. "The woman asked the girls if they could help them get the motor- home started, said Knowles. Once inside, the man threatened the girls and prevented them from leaving, he said. The dead girl's father, Allen Masuhara, a teacher at Castlebay Lane Elementary School in Northridge, said the girls had been watching television at the Masuhara home \ up to the board. Current law allows a healthy pet- son to authorize removal of lifesaving measures in the event of a future terminal illness. Courts have also authorized doctors to withhold food and water at the request of an incurably ill patient. The measure endorsed Sunday would go further, by allowing a doctor to intervene actively, at a patient's request, to give the patient a prescription drug dose that would cause instant death, without risking prosecution for the physician.

The man was described as white, SO to 60 years old, S-foot-9, 170 pounds with grayish-white hair, Knowles said. The female companion was described as white, in her 40s, S-foot-4, with a thin build and straight, brown, shoulder-length hair. The girls were taken about five miles to a secluded spot west of the Chatsworth Reservoir, where they were both shot in the head and left for dead. Knowles said the couple used cocaine in the presence of the girls. After the attack, the surviving girl managed to reach a road where a passing motorist spotted her. There was a considerable amount of blood on her shirt," Knowles said. "She saw the shot coming and put her hand up to the side of her face. The shot went through her ear and lodged in her neck. s She directed investigators to her friend's body, which was discovered about 1:30 a.m. in the back of a green Ford staton wagon abandoned on Woolsey Canyon Road near Valley Circle Boulevard.
