I! The hired gun is Phil Noble, a Charleston, S.C., political consultant who also is running for lieutenant governor in that state. ;;, What the Canadian Conservatives Lite is the down-to-earth style that helped Bill Clinton win the presidency last year. "Our new leader's style is very similar to Mr. Clinton's in the sense that she has a casual personal style, she . likes to react individually with voters ,and speak to them on a one-to-one basis," said Randall Pearce, spokes- i man for the Progressive Conservative Party.

It is the final piece in the Interstate 90 freeway system, stretching more than 3,000 miles between Seattle and Boston. The bridge is built on 25 floating concrete pontoons. If GARY STEWART Associated Press EtfJ8 ..A I Floating bridge finishes interstate by Luis Cabrera Associated Press SEATTLE A 6,500-foot floating bridge across Seattle's Lake Washington opens this weekend, the symbolic last link in Interstate 90, which stretches more than 3,000 miles from Boston to Seattle. The bridge and accompanying projects also complete one of the last gaps in the country's 42,600-mile interstate freeway system and represent a shift in emphasis from new freeway construction to moving more people on existing roads. "It's kind of the ending of an era of interstate building," said Bill Dues, Seattle assistant district administrator for the state Department of Transportation and former 1-90 project manager. The Lacey V. Murrow Floating Bridge is the last major part of the $1.56 billion 1-90 project, which includes a tunnel, retaining walls, and bike and pedestrian trails on the section of freeway connecting Seattle to its eastern suburbs. Construction should be completed in 1996. The span officially opens Sunday. About 7,000 runners and 130 wheelchair athletes will take part in the "Wheels & Heels of Fire" race across the bridge today. The bridge carries the three east-bound lanes of 1-90 between Seattle and Mercer Island.

Those include: A 20-mile gap in Interstate 287 in New Jersey that would complete a freeway loop around New York City. A 17-mile section of the Century Freeway in Los Angeles. An 1 1-mile gap in H-3 on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. A 1.3-mile section in downtown Denver. to the north, completed in 1989, will have four westbound lanes and two eastbound lanes for buses and car pools.

November 1990. No one was hurt, and traffic was rerouted to the newer bridge. "There was an extraordinary effort to recover from it and here we've got the replacement bridge really a year ahead of where we originally thought," Dues said. Congress, which pays for 91 percent of the cost of interstate highway projects in Washington state, approved money for the replacement bridge. The interstate system has changed significantly since it was created by the Federal Highway Act in 1956 at the urging of the Eisenhower aaninistration. Under the 1991 Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act it will be expanded to include other state and federal highway routes for a total of more than 150,000 miles of road, said Tom Pettit, highway engineer for the Federal Highway Administration in Washington, D.C. Emphasis has shifted gradually from construction to maintenance, and under the 1991 act to other forms of transportation as well. The new act puts more emphasis on trains and buses and car pool lanes rather than new freeways; Dues said. "We're trying to move more vehicles and more people in the same space," he said.

Jones, 20, vowed to uphold herself. "I just need another chance in the world," she wrote. She got that chance Sept. 3, after Broward County prosecutors dropped felony robbery and weapons charges against her, leaving only a misdemeanor , theft charge and freeing her from jail. 'atsy Jones On Friday morning, Jones joined boyfriend Ricon-dall Wiggins, 19, to face charges of murder and attempted armed robbery of a German tourist early Wednesday morning. Police also arrested Alvin Hudson, 19, on the same charges Friday. As Wiggins rammed his leased Ryder truck into a rental car on an expressway, police say, Jones waved a sawed-off rifle at the car and fired, instantly killing driver Uwe-Wilhelm Rakebrand, 33. Police said Hudson was in the truck, but wouldn't disclose what role he played. yi - i i lEuiFowerllne frpius Mfj. ;nlent 0n-Boarc M!lll Wsa Cleaning l JTdZir ) Attachments xm j.o amp MOTOf Sfr f EUREKA sl'XI ' Alt Steel Canister.

NOWK J a w m i i m r t a ti Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said her office would vigorously prosecute the cases. Homicide Sgt. Gerald Green said Jones was hiding in a closet in her Liberty City public housing complex, which police surrounded Thursday. ; Friends brought her food as officers combed the area. ; Early on Friday, police pulled back from the complex, trying to lure Jones out. She left the complex and later was arrested in a house. Green said the people who aided Jones could face charges. Once she was arrested, Detective Carlos Avila said, Jones confessed to her involvement in Rakebrand's murder and admitted pulling the trigger. Little information on Hudson was being released Friday night. Jones, Wiggins and Hudson apparently went out late on Tuesday hunting for tourists to rob, investigators said.
