After planting a new lawn and nursing it through one of the driest summers in Gogebic Range history, joyriders decided to spin some donuts on Joe Mack's front lawn. How angry is the retired state senator? He's offering a $250 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators. "It's just a good thing I didn't have a shotgun in my hands when this was going on, or there would have been serious vehicular damage," Mack said.

Sawyer factory closure idles 60 GWINN, Mich. <AP) — A factory at the former K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base is closing, eliminating 60 local jobs. The Hamlin Inc. plant is shutting down Oct. 31 as part of a corporate restructuring plan by its parent company, Breed Technologies of Lakeland, Fla. "You know how big business is these days," plant manager Tom Lcnz said Tuesday. "We're no longer this little Hamlin company." Hamlin is based in Lakewood, Wis. Its Sawyer plant makes electronic switches for cellular phones, air bags and smoke alarms. (Continued from Page 1) reporters. "You can't just sort of pretend it didn't happen and walk away." Starr's report on the president and his affair with Ms. Lewinsky, a portion of which was made public last week, cited what the prosecutors said was evidence of impeachable offenses in 11 instances, including perjury and obstruction of justice. The president has apologized for his behavior but has not admitted violating any law. • . Asked about calls for Clinton to reimburse some of the costs Stan- has incurred — said to be some $4.4 million investigating the Lewinsky cover-up allegations — White House Press Secretary' Mike McCurry said, "If there's a serious effort made in Congress to that, we'll consider it when the time comes." Minority Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee said showing the tape would be unfair to the president, who became the only witness videotaped when he insisted that his Aug. 17 questioning take place in the White House. Jurors at the federal courthouse watched a closed-circuit TV signal of the testimony, with extraordinary security measures in place to prevent electronic interceptions. Lawyers familiar with Clinton's testimony said the videotape shows the president at times angry with sexually graphic questioning by Starr's aides. A few times, Clinton appears caught off guard by a question and struggles to answer it, the lawyers said. And many times when pressed to give more details, Clinton keeps referring back to the narrowly legalistic statement his lawyers prepared to answer questions about the sexual nature of his relationship with Ms. Lewinsky. White House officials worried that the tape may undo the contrite image Clinton carefully built over the past two weeks with frequent public apologies about his "inappropriate" relationship with the former White House intern. And they also worried the public release of the video would begin appearing in Republican political attacks ads and fund-raising appeals. "We just hope that it's not misused," McCurry said. A CBS-New York Times poll out today showed 58 percent of Americans against beginning im-, peachment hearings over the Lewinsky affair, while 57 percent said Congress should censure Clinton. The Sept. 12-14 telephone poll of 1,813 adults had a 3 percentage point margin of error. A CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll found that 50 percent favor Con- gress holding hearings and 44 percent dropping the matter. Among self-identified likely voters, 58 percent wanted hearings to 38 percent who wanted to drop the matter. The Sept. 14-15 survey of 1,028 adults had a 3 percentage point margin of error. The margin error was 5 percentage points among a subset of 401 likely voters. The senior Democrat on the Ju- diciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, said it would be "a violation of the bipartisan spirit" for Republicans to muscle release of the tape through the committee. "The text yes, the videos no." Rep. James Rogan, R-Calif.', said that only watching the appearance would allow lawmakers and the public "to judge his demeanor and credibility." CLOVERLAND LEE CURTIS 032-4424 EVH MB ~^ Ditw jBttUHOI!
