CALIFORNIA TO INCREASE TRADE "EMBASSIES"

The Governor has proposed to increase the number of foreign trade "embassies" by four. These new "embassies" will be located in Singapore, South Korea, Red China, and Brazil at a cost of $1 million. California has had trade "embassies" since the 1960's and now has 10. The 10 currently in operation are located in Mexico, South Africa, Germany, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea. If the legislature approves this proposal, California would have 14 trade "embassies" in 13 foreign countries (2 in South Korea).

FEDS TO 'SALTY'--DROP DEAD!

In Huntington Beach, with the only federally licensed animal shelter in Orange County allowed to care for marine mammals is filled to capacity, 'Salty' the pooped sea lion pup has no home! The Sea Lion Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach is so full that the gift shop had to be converted to make room for the 81 pups already being cared by the volunteers. Salty was driven ashore by severe winter weather in Southern California. Salty is emaciated, exhausted, and has no place to go.

Officials at the Wildlife Care Center are willing to help Salty, but FEDERAL WILDLIFE OFFICIALS told the Center it could NOT take Salty in because it does NOT have FEDERAL WILDLIFE PERMITS to capture and treat marine mammals!

Huntington Beach lifeguards were helping to keep onlookers away from Salty in fear that someone would take him to their home in a vain attempt to save him (Salty needs antibiotics).

As the driving rain and bitter winds pounded the pup, the lifeguards couldn't stand seeing Salty suffer anymore. So they placed him in cage and took him to their office near the pier. There has been no word, to date, if the lifeguards face federal charges for doing so!-LA Times 2/98

RED CHINA COUNTERFEITS CALIFORNIA APPLES

Communist China, long known for its piracy of California computer soft-ware, music CDs, and videos, is now counterfeiting apples! California apple industry officials say that their representatives in Taiwan have intercepted thousands of boxes of apples falsely labeled as having been grown in California. Instead, the officials contend, they were an inferior type of Fuji apples, unwashed and unwaxed, grown in Red China. The cartons, stickers, and documentation were all bogus. The apples were smuggled into Taiwan which bans the importation of apples from China. Taiwan is the single largest export market for California apples, with sales of 38 million in 1995. About 30% of California's apple crop (and 67% of the Californian Fuji apple crop) is shipped to Taiwan annually.-L.A. Times 2/98

CALIFORNIA DENIED JUSTICE IN UNABOMBER CASE

Amazing but true, California cannot prosecute the "Unabomber" case to the full extent of California law because of the U.S. Department of Justice acceptance of a plea bargain (without consulting California prosecutors) from Ted "Unabomber" Kaczynski. Due to a California law that does not allow a person to be convicted in another jurisdiction to be also prosecuted in California for the same crimes, Mr Kaczynski will not have to face murder charges in California! In Sacramento Mr Kaczynski was to face two murder charges by bombing. What angers the Californian authorities the most is that they were NOT even notified by the Fed's of their plans for this criminal that caused so much death, injury, and fear in California. Governor Wilson said he was "deeply disturbed" and Sacramento County District Attorney Scully complained of "Washington decision makers" and "This case has been directed from Washington without any consultation with local and state agencies"-L.A.
