Administration reverses Bush policy on job-bias cases Buried stumps created deadly sinkhole NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Buried tree stumps and other construction debris created the sinkhole thai killed a 7 -year-old boy last weekend, but officials said no charges will be filed. Argo Parrello, a township consulting engineer, said the sinkhole formed because water and soil seep into the spaces between pieces of debris and layers of clay and a fissure develops. "The weight of the child (Kwame Sharif) caused the soil to collapse into the fissure," Parrello said. "This is a manmade condition." Mayor Paul Matacera said municipal statutes bar construction debris dumping. But township attorney Leslie Lefkowitz said those statutes are designed to enforce compliance to building laws, not for criminal punishment. WASHINGTON (AP) — The Clinton administration, reversing its predecessor's position, wants the Supreme Court to apply the 1991 Civil Rights Act to thousands of job-discrimination cases pend- Gene may play role in pregnancy complication NEW YORK (AP) — A gene previously implicated in high blood pressure may also play a role in a potentially life-threatening complication that occurs during pregnancy, scientists reported Saturday. The discovery may lead to a better understanding of what causes the complication, pre-eclampsia, in at least some cases, and could also lead to an eventual treatment, said researcher Dr. Kenneth Ward. Pre-eclampsia is a form of high blood pressure that usually develops after the 20th week of pregnancy and can threaten both mother and fetus. It is thought to appear in about 10 percent of first pregnancies, and it can also show up in later pregnancies. Ward is an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology and of human genetics at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City. He and Dr. Jean-Marc Lalouel of the school's Howard Hughes Medical Institute reported their findings in the May issue of the journal Nature Genetics, available today. The report is the first to demonstrate a gene association with pre- eclampsia, and the finding is "remarkable," given the difficulties involved, said Dr. Gordon Williams, director of the endocrine- hypertension division at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. The gene tells the body how to make a substance called angioten- sinogen (AN-jyo-ten-SIN-o-gen). The substance is involved in the body's control of blood volume, which in turn affects blood pressure. The study found that a particular variant of the gene was about 50 percent more common in 41 women who had pre-eclampsia than in 108 women with other pregnancy-induced high blood pressure, or in 571 women who had normal pregnancies. ing when the law was passed. The Bush administration's contention that the la w isn't retroactive was "both incorrect and contrary to the longstanding position of the government" on questions of retroactivity, the Justice Department said in court papers filed Friday. The Supreme Court has agreed to use the two job-bias cases to decide whether the law applies to cases that were pending when it took effect on Nov. 21, 1991. A decision is expected in 1994. Congress wrote the law to undo several rulings by the conservative Supreme Court. What is duct cleaning? Come see us May 1st & 2nd at the Home Improvement Show at the Fairgrounds!
