In January of this year, Gov. George Deukmejian made public his plan to eliminate Cal/OSHA and turn the protection of workers in California over to the federal Occupational, Safety and Health Administration program, allegedly to save the taxpayers $8 million. This is a terrible blunder that will cost the people of California dearly in terms of increases in worker illness, injury and death. If the Cal/OSHA program is abandoned, there surely will be annual losses of untold millions of dollars due to lost worker productivity, increased medical costs and escalating workers' compensation expenditures.

"There's a guy out in California," somebody said to John Nerud a couple of months ago, "who's a bigger fan of Dr. Fager's than you are." Nerud found this hard to believe. He had bred Dr. Fager, named him after a Boston neurosurgeon who saved his life by removing a blood clot on the brain and then trained him for three marvelous seasons in which the horse won 18 out of 22 races.

Duke Ellington described his "Second Sacred Concert" of 1968 as "the most important thing I have ever done." Though some would dispute that assessment, there's no denying the hold that sacred music had upon Ellington. The 1968 program was preceded by a 1965 concert of sacred music (which included large segments from such earlier works as "Black, Brown and Beige" and "New World A-Comin' ") and followed by a sacred music concert in 1973, a year before his death.

Members of the California Seismic Safety Commission said Friday that hospitals in the state were not meeting their responsibility in maintaining earthquake safety standards. L.

Alonzo Mourning had the last word in Game 6. When his improbable three-point basket sank the New York Knicks, he punched the air and shouted a profanity at the hostile Madison Square Garden crowd. Now, New Yorkers are cursing their team's failure to deliver a knockout blow in the fight-scarred playoff series against the Miami Heat. Instead of playing Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final in Chicago today, the Knicks face Miami in a climactic Game 7.

President Clinton used Friday's World Health Day observance to push Congress for increased U.S. financing of family planning work abroad. Clinton said 600,000 women die each year of complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. He wants Congress to raise family planning assistance and wants the money to come without a restriction dubbed the "global gag rule." Using U.S. funds to perform abortions abroad has been prohibited since 1973.

The old wooden building on the east side of U.S. 1 here could be called "the resurrected church." To the 2,000 residents of this island city between Key Largo and Islamorada, it's a historic community center used by local clubs and charitable organizations. To John and Lois Stormont, it represents a labor of love. There's nothing ostentatious about the building or its furnishings nor is it particularly old as churches go.
