Harper, Wilkinson exchange barbs in debate

Executive Editor

RICHMOND. Ky. —— When guber-
natorial candidates Wallace Wilkin-
son and John Harper debated for the
first time two weeks ago in
Owensboro, both said they offered
Kentucky a chance for change.

In their final debate last night,
change was again the byword as
each candidate claimed to have the
best answer to the state's financial

As they addressed a plethora of is-
sues ranging from campaign financ-
ing and revenue bonds to vote-buy-
ing and personal financing, the
Democrat Wilkinson and the Repub-
lican Harper exchanged barbs and
accusations while dodging in and out
of the issues.

During the last 30 months, Wilkin—
son said he had been across the
state listening to factory workers
and others who all say they want

Harper though said that if you
look closely at Wilkinson “you see
many vestiges" of what we already


have in Kentucky. “You‘re not
change — you’re more of the same."
he said to Wilkinson.

In the debate sponsored by the
Kentucky League of Women voters
last night, Wilkinson for the first
time disclosed his financial state-
ment in a question-and-answer ses-
sion with Harper.

U.S. attacks 3 Iranian
oil platforms in the gulf

MANAMA. Bahrain U.S.
warships destroyed two Iranian oil
platforms in the Persian Gulf on
yesterday and Navy commandos
raided a third.

Iran said the Americans had
begun a “full~fledged war" to which
it promised “a crushing response."

President Reagan called the 85-
minute attack “a prudent yet re-
strained response“ to Friday’s mis-
sile strike on U.S.-flagged tanker off
Kuwait. The, missile was believed
launched from the nearby Paw Pen—

At the last debate two weeks ago.
Harper, a state representative from
Bullitt County. questioned when Wil-
kinson would disclose his f inances.

Wilkinson said he had made "un-
precedented“ steps to deal fairly
with Kentuckians about his finances.

Wilkinson questioned whether dis-
closing his finances would bring one
more job to Kentucky or address
any of the problems the state is cur‘
rently facing.

One of those problems is the $450
million budget shortfall that has
been projected for next year.

Wilkinson said the budget for 1988
would be a balanced one. Under his
“first plan," those agencies receiv-


ing funds would be prioritized. he

Harper countered that it was un-
realistic to talk of a balanced bud~
get. He said that because of the
tough economic times the state

faces in the next two years. old pro-
grams would have to be paid for be»
fore new ones could be established.

Both candidates also disagreed on
just how new revenue would be
brought into the state.

Wilkinson. alluding to a speech
Harper made last week. questioned
why Harper had said Kentuckians
should go to border states to buy lot-
tery tickets that would "educate"
other states' children.

Harper said that he would oppose
the lottery because it is a regressive
tax. "It is a sham." Harper said.

Wilkinson said that 3/4 of the state
supports the lottery as a means to
lift Kentucky's sagging economy.

Wilkinson said another way to
help the state‘s economy . partic-
ularly counties — is financmg pro-
jects through bond backing.

Wilkinson said he would use bond
backing to match counties dollar for
dollar in funding sewer and infra-
structure projects

But when a county has bad credit.
one has to wonder how it got that
way. Harper saidl'sing bonds to fi-
nance projects would only place a
burden on future generations. he

Maine senator says events question constitution

Editorial Editor

U.S. Senator George Mitchell, D-
Maine, said last night that in the
200th year of the U.S. Constitution,
several events over the last few
months have raised some serious
constitutional questions.

Addressing about 200 people in the
Singletary Center for the Arts.
Mitchell said the past summer‘s
Irancontra hearings. the nomi-
nation of Robert H. Bork to the Su-
preme Court and the current situa-
tion in the Persian Gulf all relate to
the constitution.

The Iran-contra affair was a “dis-
pute of power in a democracy.“
Mitchell said. That dispute focused
on the need for the executive branch
of government to conduct covert op-
erations in a supposedly free and
open society. he said.

Two of the key witnesses who ap-
peared this summer before a joint
congressional committee, in which
Mitchell was a member. —— Adm.
John Poindexter and Lt. Col. Oliver
North — told the committee mem-
bers that the president must have
unrestricted power to conduct covert
operations around the world.

“Such a position in my view is
fundamentally inconsistent (with the
constitution),“ Mitchell said.

At times, it is necessary for the
government to conduct some covert
operations. Mitchell said. but at the
same time. he said the constitution
wovides that Americans must know
what their government is doing at
all time. so they can agree or dis-
agreewith its policy.

“Clearly the ultimate original in-
tent was to prevent any individual.
institution or branch of government
from accumulating too much

Pahaps no power in the constitu-
tion is more divided. Mitchell said,
than the power to engage in war.
The ”idem has the right to con-

duct war, but only if Congress de-
clares it.

Mitchell said that at times, some
Americans may have forgotten this
because Congress' power has been
"seriously eroded“ over the years.

After fighting two undeclared

wars. the Wars Powers Act was
passed by Congress in 1973 in order
to put more restraints on the presi
dent. .
Several times during his adminis
tration. President Ronald Reagan
has said the Wars Powers Act is un-

While Mitchell has said he has
some “very serious questiom"
about certain provisions of the War
Powers Act, he said the president
still has to obey it until it is declared
unconstitutional by the Supreme

Mitchell said the War Powers Act
needs to be changed in two areas.

Currently. if the president deploys
U.S. forces and the Congress does
not vote to keep them there within
90 days, the troops have to be re-
moved. Mitchell said Congress
should have to vote on keeping the
forces in place instead of remaining
silent like it currently can.

Mitchell also said the War Powers
Act should not apply to when the
president places military forces in
areas that are not considered com-
bat zones.

The current controversy surround-
ing the Bork nomination centers on
the idea of inalienable human rights
versrs those rights granted by gov-
ernment. Mitchell said.

The question of where the line is
drawn between human rights and

“Neither our constitution or own
laws have provided us with a clear
tween the rights of the individual
and the rights of society.“ Mitchell

Maine Senator George Mitchell spoke last night in front of a crowd

The orily way to search for that
answer. he said. is to continue

Senate Judiciary Committee that he
follows the original intent of the con-
stitution. Mitchell said "there's a

The House approved only techni—
cal amendments to the bill before
sending it to the Senate. where it
was guaranteed a friendly reception

In essence. the bill originated in
the Senate even though it was intro-
duced in the House. Its provisions
were written by Sen. Ed O’Daniel.

called “the O‘Daniel plan“ since its

The bill would assess Kentucky
employers an extra $110 million per
year for 30 years to pay off a $1.7
billion debt in the workers’ compen-
sation program. The coal industry
would absorb $61 million a year of
that amount.

The first lady “primped a little for

first lady had told her. "I‘m feeling

Hutton reported Sunday that final
test results from Mrs. Reagan's sur-
gery revealed no spread of the ma-

a full recovery was excellent.

A 12-doctor team removed the her

from under her arm Saturday in a
50-minute operation known as a
modified radical mastectomy. The
surgery followed a biopsy that re-
vealed a quarter~inch malignant.

Her physicians at first predicted a
five- to sevenday hospital stay, but
Reagan told reporters Sunday her
recovery was “ahead of schedule."

Mrs. Reagan plans no public
events for at least three weeks, Mrs.
Crispen said.

The first lady became known as a
sharpeyed protector of Reagan's
schedule and health, and now she
will follow her own advice, Mrs.
Crispen said. “I‘ve made sure oth-

I‘m going to follow some myself."
Mrs. Crispen quoted her as saying.

Many were watching from the

House Bill 1 — weathered hours of
often emotional debate and with-
stood two major attempts to amend

The more touted of the amend-

separate fund that would be built
upon a 40-cent tonnage tax for coal
companies. . _

“I don’t think we‘ll ever'get over
the argmnenr or warhead: (for'
the workers‘ compensation mess)
and who pays more and who pays
less until we separate those two
funds." said Stumbo.

But Rep. Joe Clarke, chairman of
the House Appropriations and Reve-
nue Committee. said Stumbo‘s cal—

culations “are absolutely incorrect"
and that the amendment was “se-
riously flawed.“

“It‘s always been my impression
that if something looks too good to
be true, it usually is.“ said Clarke.

would not assess coal companies

NEW YORK — Subway gunman
Bernhard Goetz was sentenced yes-
terday to six months in jail. ordered
to see a psychiatrist and fined $5.000
by a judge who rejected a probation
report that recommended he go

Goetz. whose shooting of four
youths nearly three years ago
touched off a nationwide debate over
vigilantism, stood impassively as
acting state Supreme Court Justice
Stephen G. Crane sentenced him on
the single gun possession count on
which he was convicted.

The crime carries a maximum
penalty of sven years in prison,
though first-time offenders like
Goetz rarely go to jail.

Goetz, who was acquitted of more
serious charges in the shootings,
also was sentenced to five years of
probation and 280 hours of commu-
nity service at New York University
Medical Center.

“A non-jail sentence for Mr. Goetz
would invite others to violate the
gun law," Crane said. “Whether you
agree with the law or not, it is the
law and it was the law on Dec. 22,
1984, and it remains the law.”

Asked if he wished to say anything
before the judge pronounced sen-
tence, Goetz, 39, replied: “No. I
have nothing to say.“

After the sentence was passed,
Goetz stood silent, showing no emo-
tion. He remains free on $50,000 bail,
pending appeal.

Crane said Goetz could choose his
psychiatrist. In its presentencing
memo. the Probation Department
had suggested “intensive supervi-
sion coupled with indefinite psychi-
atric intervention," but no jail time.

Goetz's lawyer, Barry Slotnick,
had moved to quashfie-conviefim.

ecutor Gregory Waples described
