was quiet and warm. Isolated Thunderstorms today could put a damper on outdoor activities.
Bush, Gore Confident of N.C. Win
Bv Worth Civils
One week after George W. Bush
launched his ad campaign in North
Carolina, campaign representatives for
-.Vice President A1 Gore say they have no
-immediate plans to begin running ads in
j r Despite the fact that North Carolina has
mot voted for a Democratic presidential
since 1968, both campaigns say
j?jhey are confident their candidates have
a shot at gaining the state’s 14 electoral
votes. The ads tout Bush’s commitment to
improving education and are running in
20 states other than North Carolina, a state
where Gov. Jim Hunt has already made
education a top priority.
While a recent Mason-Dixon poll
showed Bush leading Gore by 7 percent
in North Carolina, Gore campaign offi
cials see Bush’s decision to run the ads as
an indication that Republicans are slow
, ly losing their choke hold on the state.

woman Ellen Mellody said of the Bush

ad campaign. “It’s actually a good sign.
Republicans clearly feel scared. They
did not have to in the past. The Gore
ticket is targeting North Carolina and
fully intends on winning it.”
A strong Democratic influence in
other aspects of the state’s government
helped influence the Bush campaign to
begin running the ads, officials said.
“We don’t take North Carolina for
granted,” Bush spokesman Tucker
Eskew said. “It’s a state where Clinton
ran close and where the governor is
Democratic and most newly elected sen
ator is a Democrat.”
Mellody said Gore plans to build on
this Democratic presence by opening a
field office in Raleigh, as well as run ads
and campaign across the state.
But as of now, Bush is the only can
didate with an advertising presence in
the state. Dick Cheney, Bush’s running
mate, also made an appearance in
Charlotte on Wednesday and Bush him
self is likely to follow. “(Bush) feels at
home in North Carolina,” Eskew said.
“He would encourage the Democrats to
rethink brushing off the state and to
spend plenty of money in North
Carolina, for they will only be pursuing
an expensive defeat.”
But Gore is still confident he can win
in North Carolina by focusing on issues
such as Medicare, Social Security and,
of course, education, Mellody said.
“We truly believe in fighting for the
issues important to North Carolina,” she
said. “We strongly feel we can really win
the state on the issues.”
UNC political science professor Thad
Beyle said the presidential race in North
Carolina would be close, but that Bush
likely would prevail.
“This is part of the strategy to hold
those states that are close,” Beyle said of
Bush’s ad campaign. “I would say right
now that the state is not getting any
more Democratic, and if I had to put
my money down, I’d say Bush would
win the state.”

Rock Movie Heavily Tragic,

DURHAM -No one can really

Their 1970 documentary on the
free concert at
Alta m o n t

the rerelease boasts vast audio and visu

High Wind Boosts Forest Fire Threat
HELENA, Mont. -Firefighters were
on their guard Sunday as more windy
weather threatened to worsen wildfires
that already had turned hundreds of
thousands of acres of forest to ash.
Wind already was blamed for creat
ing a firestorm in South Dakota’s moun
tainous Black Hills.
Fire officials worried that the 30
mph wind forecast Sunday could cause
problems for some of the 10,000 people
battling the 23 major wildfires in the
forests of western Montana.
“Today is supposed to be a big day
for wind,” said Venetia Gempler of the
National Interagency Fire Center in
Boise, Idaho. “We are expecting to have
a significant growth in fires because of
Montana fires burned an additional
13,000 acres Saturday as blustery weath
er swept through the region, but officials
said some of that was land within the
perimeters of fires that had not been
charred by the flames’ first pass.
“We did get some growth on the
fires, but nothing incredibly huge,” said
Connie Myers, an information officer
for crew battling a group of blazes that
had blackened more than 260,000 acres
in and around the Bitterroot Valley.

The remastered version of “Gimme

the directors’ rock tragedy in crisp and
eerie color. The film’s remastered sound
blasting out of the Carolina Theatre’s
speakers is worth the admission alone.

That was not the case in western
South Dakota, where a fire in the heart
of the Black Hills National Forest, north
west of Custer, exploded from 30,000
acres on Saturday to an estimated
90,000 on Sunday.
The Forest Service said it expected
more “explosive fire behavior” Sunday.
Firefighters were forced off that fire’s
north side Saturday because the wind
created firestorm conditions. Three out
buildings and a tractor were destroyed
in the sparsely settled region and two
homes were damaged, officials reported.
The few people in the region were
urged to evacuate an area of 300 square

these scenes feature lawyer Melvin Belli
making countless calls, determined to
put on a show that may not have been
worth organizing. Others feature topless
fans at the Altamont show, proving how
hedonistic the event was.
So who’s ultimately to blame for the
death of Parker at Altamont Speedway?
The promoters, audience or the band?

suggestions, but presents all the evidence.
Above all, it offers a listening and viewing

miles, forest officials said. Fire lines
along the eastern side of the blaze were
being strengthened because a cold front
moving into the region was expected to
bring northwesterly wind.
The -e was a possibility that the wind
could help crews working on a 110,000-
acre range fire in southcentral
Washington. It had burned 16 struc
tures, including one home.
That fire, near Prosser, Wash., was
50 percent contained early Sunday and
the wind was expected to blow out of
the west, which “would be blowing the
fire back on itself,” said Laura Meer of
the state Emergency Operations Center.
