In December-- the state ordered the owners of the Osborne Motel in Independence to close their entire complex after failing to fix their water system. Officials say the motel has since reconnected to the town's water system and earlier this month received its state permit after health officials found NO sewer leaks. At one time, the motel was regarded as some of the worst migrant farm- worker housing in the state.

at a sunrise easter service at a church near his ranch, the president heard a minister offer prayers of thanks for the safe return of the 24 americans held by china for 11 days.
but the spirit of Easter Sunday did little to quell the anger in congress over China's conduct.

Nation): You want to be treated like a major nation, act like a major nation. You have to play by the rules. You don't play by the rules, there will be consequences. 08

(SOT SEN. ROBERT TORRICELLI, D-NJ) (Meet The Press): This is not some

incident that will come and pass in the night. This is probably leading, I think at least in the near term, to a fundamental change in our relationship with China.

(SOT SEN. CHUCK HAGEL, R-NE, Senate Foreign Relations Committee) (Face

the Nation): 057 But there's no question that this is going to have a residue of impact on our future relationship. Now, whether that's irreparable or not, I think it's too early to tell.
the standoff with china continues over its custody of the America surveillance aircraft.

SOT SEN GEORGE ALLEN: It is a symbol, but as I said, be firm in

demanding it. Don't be fanatic. It's just a piece of disabled equipment.

some urge Pres. Bush to retaliate against china - by selling new , advanced weapon systems to Taiwan - including 4 destroyers equipped with the state of the art AEGIS radar system.

SOT TORRICELLI: Whatever the president's intentions were in selling arms

to Taiwan, qualitatively and quantitatively that sale now needs to, at least in some measured way, be increased.
BIDEN If the Aegis is needed to keep our commitment to Taiwan, then we should sell it. I have an open mind about that at this point. But it shouldn't be done to, quote, "show the Chinese." 10
o/c knoller: the administration views arms sales to Taiwan as an issue separate from the spyplane episode. but at a meeting in Beijing on Wednesday, u.s. officials are under orders from pres. bush to put tough questions to china about its practice of challenging US surveillance aircraft in international airspace. mk, cbsn, w- the pres. in Crawford, tx.

A Navy panel has reportedly recommended that the skipper of the U-S-S Greeneville not be tried by court-martial. Sources for CBS news say Commander Scott Waddle is likely to face some lesser form of punishment. Lee Cowan has more.

((
Among the other charges that could be brought against the Greenville's skipper are dereliction of duty, and subjecting his vessel to a hazard.

Both are relatively minor -- and while a court-martial IS possible -- Waddles attorney maintains it would be unjust.

CBS News has been told -- a more likely punishment may be a formal reprimand that would confine him to quarters, restrict his duties, and cut his pay -- but keep him out of jail.

That possibility brought anger and resentment in Japan -- where family members of the 9 people killed in the collision have been calling for the Navy to throw the book at the commander, and members of his crew.

(GRAPHIC:)


In an interview with TIME magazine, Waddle takes responsibility for the collision -- but defends it this way: "I didn't cause the accident," he says. "I gave the orders that resulted in the accident."

(COWAN ON CAM:)

The final decision now rests with the chief of the Pacific Fleet, Admiral Thomas Fargo -- he has 30 days to review the panel's report and make his recommendation on punishment -- court-martial -- or not. Lee Cowan, CBS News, NY.

(( He may not be as famous as his first cousin Jerry, but Calvin Falwell has certainly made a name for himself in central Virginia.
Falwell's family came here in the early 1800's.. and Calvin was born, raised and has lived and worked within a mile or so of his current offices on Campbell Avenue.
The walls of his office are lined with the memories of what has been a storied career as a pilot, businessman and entrepreneur.. and even at age 80, he has no plans to retire.

It is baseball that occupies a special place in Falwell's heart.
In 1962, when racial tensions forced the White Sox to abandon their Single- A home in Savannah, Lynchburg welcomed the team with open arms.
[SOT 12:40:01 tape #1]

((CALVIN FALWELL: AT THE END OF '65, THE WHITE SOX WANTED TO MOVE THAT BALLCLUB TO EVANSVILLE, INDIANA AND WHEN THE WHITE SOX CAME HERE TO TALK TO ME ABOUT MOVING IT TO EVANSVILLE, THEY SAID 'CALVIN, WE'VE GOT A CLUB IN THE CAROLINA LEAGUE, IN I THINK IT WAS PENINSULA OR SOMEWHERE DOWN IN THERE, AND THEY SAID 'TELL YOU WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO, WE'RE GOING TO BRING THAT BALLCLUB RIGHT IN HERE, PUT YOU RIGHT IN THE CAROLINA LEAGUE, THAT'S HOW SIMPLE IT WAS.))
[RUNS= 25]
[OUT Q=simple it was.]


Keeping Lynchburg in the game of minor league baseball hasn't been simple, however.
With city hall now dragging its feet on renovating 60- year- old City Stadium, Falwell's afraid the Pirates are ready to pack up and move.
[SOT 00:41:45 tape #2]

((CALVIN FALWELL: AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, I'M NOT GOING TO BE HERE MANY MORE YEARS, AND I'D JUST LIKE TO KEEP BASEBALL HERE. I GREW UP WITH IT, FOOLED WITH IT YOU MIGHT SAY ALL OF MY LIFE, AND I JUST HATE TO JERK THE RUG OUT FROM UNDER THE YOUNG PEOPLE HERE. HATE TO JERK THE RUG OUT FROM UNDER THESE YOUNG PEOPLE..
