Buffalo's subway and bus system hurtled toward a shutdown as a last-minute rescue plan announced Friday by Mayor James D. Griffin ran into opposition. Erie County officials, who earlier rejected a utility tax to fund mass transit, criticized Griffin's new proposal to use county sales taxes and an advance on county operating subsidies to keep the system afloat. County leaders said they saw no way to avoid a shutdown tonight of the bus and subway system, which carries 120,000 riders a day.

Vowing to turn this Lake Erie city into the "next Wichita," militant anti-abortion activists made preparations here Monday for a massive protest. The campaign, organized by the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue and dubbed "Spring of Life," is patterned after the group's 46-day siege of abortion clinics in Wichita, Kan., which resulted in 2,600 arrests last summer.

Police arrested at least 190 abortion opponents as they rushed onto a four-lane highway in front of a clinic in Amherst. The protesters attempted to breach police barricades and penetrate a human shield of abortion rights advocates guarding the facility.

For most of the past week, Dianne Mathiowetz has been leading a double life--an auto parts assembly-line worker by night, an abortion rights activist by day. It is tiring, she says. She does not get home from the plant until 1 a.m. At the crack of dawn, she is up and out among the hundreds of abortion rights advocates standing guard outside the abortion clinics targeted by Operation Rescue in its anti-abortion campaign here. Then, by 1:30 p.m., she is off to work at the factory again.

A radio station held a contest last week to determine how far Bills' fans would go to get a ticket to see their team in the AFC championship game in Miami. Pretty far. One desperate soul ate maggots. Another consumed what he claimed were buffalo chips. And they weren't even the winners. That dubious honor went to a fan who smeared his body with what he claimed were dolphin parts and then ate them.
