Radanovich, the owner of Radanovich Wineries, was being sworn in as one of the nation's freshman congressmen, two cases of Radanovich wine, which were supposed to have arrived via United Parcel Service, were lost somewhere between here and the West Coast.

STOP SIGN: After 45 minutes of discussing the nation's transportation woes, the big moment arrived: President-elect Bill Clinton asked Rep. Norman Y.

Some Republican Assembly members Wednesday credited voter distaste of higher taxes for Tuesday's upset special election victory of Stockton businessman Dean Andal over Democrat Patti Garamendi, the wife of the state insurance commissioner.
