News Computers blamed for welfare delays Shooter's hearing delayed SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) — A preliminary hearing has been postponed for the man charged with gunning down the circulation manager of The Evening News. Nathan P. Hanna, 39, had been scheduled for a court appearance Monday. It was delayed because he is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he is competent to stand trial, public defender Elizabeth Church said. The testing itself should be completed sometime in the next week," Ms. Church said. "I will not comment about his psychological state or possible defenses we might be using." The hearing was rescheduled for Sept. 30 in Chippewa County District Court. Hanna is charged with open murder, accused of killing Anthony Gillespie with a shotgun near his desk in the Evening News office the morning of July 23. . ... . Police have cot disclosed a motive. After three days on the run, Hanna was sighted walking across a field near town. Police shot him several times, saying he refused to surrender and fired at them. Ms. Church contends Hanna did not shoot at the officers. NMU enrollment down MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — Enrollment is down slightly at Northern Michigan University, but total credit hours are up.

(AP) — State employees and welfare recipients say a new computer system has fallen short of its goal of speeding the delivery of benefits. The $115 million system, called ASSIST, has exceeded expectations in two unwanted areas, however It's more than $60 million over budget and has come on line two yeara late. "It's a real mess," said Marguerite Koweleski, an advocate with Oakland County Welfare Farmer ignites peat fire &B6CANABA, Mich. (AP) — A fanner who set a fire to clear land for a cranberry crop violated air quality standards, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality said. The fanner acted legally when he started the fire Aug. 17. But when below-ground peat was ignited, it created clouds of dense, pungent smoke that caused irritation and health problems for some neighbors, the DEQ said. The Department of Natural Resources said it had received about 125 complaints as of last Friday. The fire was 90 percent under control by Monday, DNR spokesman Pete Davis said. The agency pumped hundreds of thousands of gallons of water and foam over the weekend, utilizing trucks and a newly installed irrigation line. The farmer began trying immediately to put out the fire after the DEQ notified him of air quality violations, analyst Warren Deities said. Officials will decide whether fines will be levied, district supervisor Brian Brady said. He noted that first : time violators generally are not fined and that the farmer has agreed to pay the DNR's costs in helping extinguish the fire. Rights, told The Detroit News in a report Wednesday. "We have people unable to get food stamps when they're desperate for food. In one Oakland County office, we've got two weeks of applications sitting there; they've never everj been registered." Some state workers who have used ASSIST since it was activated Aug. 10 also say it is slow and inefficient. "To change an address, the computer brings up ... all these things that have nothing to do with changing an address," a Wayne County Family Independence Agency worker, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Detroit Free Press. "Something that used to be a simple process is taking one, two, three days now." FIA officials acknowledge problems with ASSIST, but say they are working to fix software flaws and trying to keep pace with fed- eral demands for information only recently required of states. "Typically in these large systems, there's a 30- to 60-day period to get the bugs out of it," Mark Jasonowicz, the FIA's deputy director, told the Free Press. Officials began to discuss updating Michigan's welfare computers in the mid-1980s. Bids were sought in 1991; in early 1993, the state signed a $53 million contract with Unisys Corp.
