Page 7A STATE Ct KIATDOKI GATHS Southern Illinoisan, Tuesday, November 1, 1994 Netsch portrays Edgar as lifeless bureaucrat DECATUR (AP) Democratic challenger Dawn Clark Netsch accused Republican Gov. Jim Edgar of a failure of leadership Monday, saying his first term has amounted to "four years of doing nothing." At stops in the friendly Democratic territory of her running mate, state Sen. Penny Severns, Netsch pleaded with workers to ignore the polls and throw out the man she portrays as a lifeless bureaucrat. "There is no vision, no sense of commitment," Netsch told more than 30 people pressed into the narrow Shelby County Democratic Party headquarters. "You have no idea why he wants to do this for four more years." Edgar was confident enough in his own prospects to spend the day campaigning in western Illinois to boost GOP chances of taking control of the Illinois House. "I'd hate to wake up the day after (the election) and realize we didn't work hard enough in a couple districts that might have made the difference," he said as he crisscrossed the region in a camper and helicopter. At times, the incumbent appeared more focused on unseating Chicago Democrat Michael Madigan as House speaker than he did in winning his own race. "Nothing would reduce my stress level more than my not having to call Mike Madigan Mr. Speaker anymore," Edgar told a Beardstown rally on behalf of 95th District House candidate Rich Myers, who is challenging Rep. Bill Edley, D-Macomb, one of Edgar's nastiest legislative critics. Madigan has a 67-51 majority in the House, but Republicans hope to pick up nine seats and have control of the governor's mansion and both the House and Senate for the first time in 24 years. Jury rules $5 million LAS VEGAS (AP) The Las Vegas Hilton and its parent company were ordered Monday to pay $5 million in punitive damages for failing to protect a former Navy lieutenant from drunken aviators at the 1991 Tailhook convention. The federal jury's ruling brings Paula Coughlin's total award to $6.7 million. "I think justice was served," Coughlin said, speaking with reporters for the first time since the trial began Sept. 12. "This sends a message that you can't tolerate abusing women even for making money." Coughlin blew the whistle on the drunken debauchery at the meeting of drunken Navy and Marine aviators. A Pentagon report said 83 women were assaulted or molested at the convention. Reward considered for missing boys UNION, S.C. (AP) Frustrated investigators looking into the disappearance of two little boys in an alleged carjacking were considering offering a reward Monday after receiving a growing number of calls from "psychics." Also Monday, the television program "A Current Affair" reported that a friend of Susan Smith, the boys' mother, failed a lie detector test question about whether he was withholding information in the case. The 24-year-old friend, Mitch Sinclair, declined to answer questions about the report Monday night. r Community Continued from 5A ested in serving are asked to call the hospital administration office at 542-2146. The committee will meet with the hospital board either quarterly or twice annually Turk said. He said the group will solicit feedback from the customers of the hospital and community at large. He said the committee will include 25-35 people covering the"full spectrum" of races, religions, careers, economic status and other variables. The first meeting will probably be in January. R egion Groups get grants: Two Southern Illinois organizations will share $9,200 to promote environmental education and solid waste management. Carbondale Clean & Green will get $6,600 to continue a phone book recycling program and to develop a recycling guide for local residents. The group also will hold teacher workshops and provide ed Earlier in Petersburg, the governor heralded the efforts of Sherman Republican Raymond Poe to succeed Democratic Rep. Vickie Moseley, criticizing the Springfield Democrat for opposing the death penalty for drug kingpins. Edgar also campaigned for Rep. Jay Ackerman, R-Morton, who is running for re-election against Democrat Grace Bunn Lievens of Morton. Netsch, who is trying to make up a more than 2-1 deficit in the polls, continued the double-barrel attack that has been central to her campaign in its waning days. She targeted Edgar's shortcomings and promoted her plan to raise income taxes and lower property taxes. Among Edgar's problems, she said at a news conference in Taylorville, was his administration's refusal to disclose information about four local children who were diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer. Some people were concerned that environmental factors may have played a role in the development of the cancer, called neuroblastoma, which affects the adrenal glands and nervous system and occurs primarily in children under 10. Netsch said Edgar should have forced the state to release the information: "If he would ever step up and provide the leadership, he could shake that information loose." Edgar, after being told of her remarks, said he had good reason not to release the information until ordered to by the Supreme Court. "If her idea of leadership is breaking the law, I guess I am not that type of leader," Edgar said. "There was confidential information that we had under the law that we could not release. That was our interpretation. That was what our lawyer, the attorney general (Democrat Roland Burns) told us." Hilton must pay to Tailhook plaintiff Coughlin settled for an undisclosed amount with the Tailhook Association before the trial started. The jury awarded Coughlin $1.7 million in compensatory damages Friday, ruling that the Hilton failed to provide adequate security at the convention. Since it also determined that Hilton had acted with malice, the jury returned Monday to deliberate punitive damages, aimed at punishing a wrongdoer and deterring such conduct in the future. Coughlin had testified that she was trapped in the hotel's third-floor hallway one night during the convention by a group of men who shoved their hands down her bra and tried to reach up her skirt and pull off her underwear. Coughlin's attorney urged jurors to issue a multimillion dollar award Mrs. Smith told authorities she was en route to visit Sinclair, a family friend, when the children were taken in a carjacking last week. Union County Sheriff Howard Wells said Sinclair was not a suspect. Three-year-old Michael Smith and his 14-month-old brother, Alex, have not been seen since Oct. 25, when Mrs. Smith reported that a man jumped in her car, then ordered her out at gunpoint, taking the boys still strapped in safety seats. With no firm leads and no motive six days into the nationwide man ucational activities for students, including an environmental fair and a recycling library. Mount Vernon Bright and Beautiful will get $2,600 to continue a magazine recycling program and its education programs. A total of $75,000 was awarded to 1 1 organizations as part of the Keep Illinois Beautiful program. Any Illinois city or county certified by Keep America Beautiful can apply for the grants. Each city or county has agreed to forward the grant funds to a not-for-profit community organization for implementation of the program. The money for the grants comes from the Solid Waste Management Fund at the Illinois Department of Energy and Natural Resources. Revenue for the fund is generated by tipping fees collected from owners and operators of sanitary landfills. Local organizations and business provide matching funds to qualify for the state grants. Fund-raiser Saturday: An all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast will be held from 7 to 11 a.m. Saturday in the old Royalton school. Proceeds will go to the family of Jennifer Rose, age 3, who has leukemia. Funds will be IN BRIEF Panel to oversee troubled school SPRINGFIELD (AP) The Illinois State Board of Education appointed a three-member panel Monday to oversee the finances of the troubled East St. Louis school district. Richard J. Mark, president and chief executive officer of St. Mary's Hospital of East St. Louis, will serve as chairman of the group, which will meet for the first time Wednesday. The 14,000-student school district was struggling with a $ 10 million debt and severe teacher shortage when the State Board of Education voted last month to take financial control. Robert Oakes, former superintendent of Decatur School District 61, and Saundra J. Hudson, a senior systems analyst at North American Lime Co. in Alton and a member of the Edwardsville School District Board of Education, are the panel's other members. Terry Bruce takes utility post MOUNT CARMEL (AP) Former 1 9th District Congressman Terry Bruce has been appointed director-at-large for the Mount Carmel Public Utility, company officials announced Monday. "What Terry brings to the table is a wealth of experience both with the Illinois Legislature and Congress in energy affairs," said company president Phil Barnhard. "He has good contacts nationally and can help out, or give us advice, at least, on lobbying positions to take." Bruce served as a Democratic congressman from 1984 to January 1993, and earlier spent 14 years in the Illinois Senate. He lost a primary challenge to Rep. Glenn Poshard. He has worked for Ameritech since leaving Congress. Bruce, an attorney, maintains an office and residence in Olney, but also spends a lot of time in Washington, D.C., troubleshooting for companies. "to get the (Hilton) shareholders' attention" to prevent future assaults or remove some company executives. "They're still equating the damage done to Paula Coughlin and her life to a broken lamp," said Dennis Schoville, one of Coughlin's attorneys. Hilton attorney Eugene Wait argued the Hilton had been punished enough by negative publicity and by the $1.7 million compensatory award. "We believe that the message has already found it's way to the Las Vegas Hilton," he said. "Your verdict punished the Hilton." Financial statements introduced in court Monday showed the net worth of Hilton Hotel Corp. at $1.1 billion and the Las Vegas Hilton at $274 million. hunt for the alleged abductor, Wells said a growing number of calls on the case were "of a psychic nature." "They're the result of someone having a vision, or having a dream or someone saying, I just have a strong belief that if you look here this is what you're going to find,'" he said. He added: "If... money is going to motivate some types of individuals to give us solid information, we may go into a reward" later this week. He said a company in the area had donated $10,000 to a reward fund. used for her medical care and travel expenses. Cost of the breakfast is $3.
