When New York's Suffolk County this week adopted the nation's toughest newsprint recycling law, it joined a groundswell among community activists to induce the birth of a market that they believe has so far failed to develop on its own. While several states have passed laws requiring newspapers to use recycled paper, and similar federal bills are pending, Suffolk County is apparently the first local government to enact legislation.

As Sixto Nunez surveyed the road conditions in Long Island on Saturday, he started to get anxious. The 40-year-old Dominican immigrant had already braved three New York winters, but this was different. The plowed snow mounds looked menacing and, a few miles away, hundreds of cars, trucks and snowplows were marooned on the Long Island Expressway. “All I saw was snow,” Sixto said in Spanish. “It was bad, there was way too much snow.” Nunez turned to his friend, who had planned to take him home, and asked to go to the closest place he knew where he could stay warm and avoid the streets: Wal-Mart.

I am always amused by the idiocy of people who think they are stronger than the forces of nature. The outcome, of course, is predictable. So that second home owners, real estate developers and hotel operators can build along the shoreline, the public must suffer the costs. And just what are those costs? In Suffolk County, N.Y., it is $120 million. In Carolina and Kure Beach, S.C., it is $24 million. The list goes on. And, what for? To "stabilize" the beach! Any fool who has spent 30 seconds watching the waves move sand around the beach knows there is no seawall or structure that will hold back the ocean.

Much of the Northeast struggled on Sunday to dig out from the massive weekend blizzard.  By evening, a 27-mile stretch of the snow-covered Long Island Expressway remained closed, a day after vehicles became mired there during the blizzard. At New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's request, more than 400 snowplow trucks and 700 employees headed to Suffolk County. The county, along with coastal areas in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, were hit hard by the powerful blizzard, which broke snowfall records in some regions.

Review the workstation. "Your neck should be straight, with your head centered above your spine. The screen should be easily viewed without bending your neck forward," says Linda H. Morse, chief of the occupational medicine division at Valley Health Center in San Jose. "Your arms should be roughly at 90-degree angles. Your wrists and hands should be straight. Your spine should have its normal curve supported. Your feet should rest in a relaxed fashion on the floor."

A federal judge accused of bias in a slander case stemming from the death of a California college football star who was in police custody lost a Supreme Court appeal today. The justices, without comment, barred U.S. District Judge Manuel L. Real from rehearing part of the case in which he previously imposed a $250,000 fine against a lawyer who represented the police. The much-publicized case began with the June 2, 1981, death in Signal Hill, Calif.
