*Indiana

(Continued from Page 1A) appeared to be shotgun wounds. Earlier, the mayor and hospital administrators said they feared 30 to 35 people had been shot. Corporate reports show that`s about how many people are employed at Nu-Wood. Tammy Funderburk of nearby New Paris said she spoke briefly by cell phone with her 18-year-old son, who worked at the factory and escaped uninjured. "He saw the gunman coming and he had a big rifle," Funderburk said. "He saw the gunman shooting people and he ran out the back door as fast as he could." The shooting jolted this northern Indiana community of 29,000 about 100 miles east of Chicago. An elementary school kept its pupils inside and Goshen College, a small school run by Mennonites, told students and faculty to stay indoors. Alerted by a 911 call from another business nearby, police and SWAT teams surrounded the factory and cordoned off the industrial park on the edge of town. Twelve nearby plants were evacuated, and more than a dozen ambulances lined up near the complex. "The place is smothered in cops," Chris Barouska, a parts manager at a neighboring Ingersoll-Rand factory, said as authorities scrambled to find the gunman. "Completely surrounded." By late afternoon, people were leaving the building with their hands on their heads and rescue crews removed people on stretchers. Nu-Wood makes a polyurethane-based product that resembles white pine and is used as decorative trimming by homebuilders and remodelers. According to Dun & Bradstreet, the company employs 35 people and reported $3.1 million in sales last year. Nu-Wood changed its name from GR Plastics Inc. earlier this year and leases 40,000 square feet at the Goshen building. Herb Stein, a Nu-Wood manufacturer`s representative who works out of his home in Akron, Ohio, said it was not a typical factory.

Horoscopes

BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be carried away by your daydreams today, because you prefer being in a pleasant, dreamy fog. This might just be "cooking time" for your deeper mental process. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your ability to get others to support a worthy cause is excellent today. This is a noble impulse, and you will be admired for it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Someone might suggest a pleasant getaway or travel trip. You must accept, because this is an excellent time for you to escape your daily routine. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You're willing to put your needs second to those at work today. You will derive much satisfaction out of helping others and seeing the real benefit your efforts can make. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your creative, romantic imagination is aroused today. Not only are you attracted to others -- and possibly dreaming about someone special -- your appreciation for all beautiful things is heightened. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is the perfect day to buy something or do something that makes where you live more beautiful. Similarly, you might treat a family member in a generous way. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You are unusually sensitive to the needs and feelings of your loved ones today. If you are a parent, take time to enjoy your children by sharing laughter and good times. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You definitely are in the mood to spend money on some luxurious item for your home. Life is short -- so why not indulge yourself? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You feel especially close to a sibling or friend today. It's as if you can experience a feeling of "soul union" with someone who thinks the same way you do. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Try to give yourself the opportunity to slip away for a quiet moment of reverie today. You need to put your mind on hold to rest and restore your mental equilibrium. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A friend might show you a great kindness today. A good friend is someone who knows that true generosity is giving what is needed. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Someone you admire, possibly someone older than you, espouses words of wisdom that inspire you today. What is good for the swarm is generally good for the bee. YOU BORN TODAY You are an intelligent, imaginative person. Your sensitive nature sets you apart from most. Because you are a rugged individualist, you do not easily fit in with the pack. You march to your own tune and will defend your beliefs. This can arouse opposition to you. This year brings a major change to your life.
