NEW ORLEANS — Thefederal government’s spillchief said a relief tunnelshould finally reach BP’sbroken Gulf of Mexico wellby the weekend, meaning thethree-month-old gusher couldbe snuffed for good withintwo weeks.After several days of con-cern about the well’s stabilityand the leaky cap keeping theoil mostly bottled up, retiredCoast Guard Adm. ThadAllen said Tuesday that engi-neers concluded the risk of abigger blowout was minimaland were getting closer topumping mud into the col-umn to permanently seal it.“We continue to be pleasedwith the progress,” Allen saidin Washington, giving thego-ahead to keep the wellcap shut for at least 24 morehours and possibly longer.Meanwhile, a publishedreport said BP’s belea-guered CEO, Tony Hayward,planned to step down after aseries of PR blunders, includ-ing yacht racing during thespill and saying he wantedhis life back. The Timesnewspaper in London, quot-ing company sources it didnot identify, said today thatHayward was likely to go byearly September.But BP spokeswomanSheila Williams said, “Tonyis leading the company in astrong and robust way and hasthe support of the board.”Shares of British-based BPPLC, which have lost about40 percent since the disasterbegan in April, were up morethan 3 percent today on theLondon Stock Exchange afterthe company announced a $7billion asset sale to Houston-based Apache Corp. to helppay for the catastrophe.Just weeks after promisingto raise $10 billion by sellingpieces of its business, BP saidTuesday that Apache willbuy properties in the U.S.,Canada and Egypt. BP says ithas spent nearly $4 billion onthe spill so far and is on thehook for a $20 billion fundfor damaged Gulf residentsand businesses.On the Gulf, BP vice pres-ident Kent Wells said crewshope to drill sideways intothe blown-out well and inter-cept it at the end of July. Therelief well is necessary toplug the well permanently.After it’s done, crewswill begin the kill procedure,pumping mud and cement intothe hole a mile underwater toseal it, which BP said couldtake anywhere from five daysto a couple of weeks.“Everything’s lookinggood,” Well said. “The relief well is exactly where wewant it. It’s pointed in theright direction, and so we’refeeling good about that.”Engineers are also con-sidering shooting drillingmud down through the capto increase the chances thatthe attempt to kill the wellsucceeds.News that a solution isnear cheered Jeff Hunt, whoscans the waves daily for tell-tale tar balls in PensacolaBeach, Fla.“It makes me very happy,after nearly three months,that they finally have gottento a pinnacle point of closingit,” said the co-owner of ahair salon. “We need to plugthe thing.”BP wants to leave the capon in the meantime. At onepoint, Allen wanted instead torelieve the pressure by open-ing up the cap and siphoningoil up to ships on the surface,but he has relented in the pastfew days. Opening the capwould have required allowingmillions of gallons oil to gushinto the sea again for a fewdays while the plumbing washooked up.

WASHINGTON — SenateDemocrats broke through astubborn Republican filibusterTuesday and pressed to restart jobless benefits for 2 1/2 mil-lion Americans still unable tofind work in the frail nation-al economic recovery. TheDemocrats were victorious bythe single vote of a new senatorsworn in only moments earlier.Senators voted 60-40 tomove ahead on the bill, clear-ing the way for a final vote inthe chamber today.The recovery from thenation’s long and deep reces-sion has produced relativelyfew new jobs so far, and mil-lions of people’s unemploy-ment benefits began running outseven weeks ago as Congressbogged down in an impasseover whether the $34 billioncost of a fresh extension of benefits should be paid for withbudget cuts or be added to the$13 trillion national debt.Democrats emphasized theplight of the unemployed andargued that putting money inthe pockets of jobless fami-lies would also boost economicrevival.But the numbers are farsmaller than last year’s $862billion stimulus legislation.Republicans have blockedDemocratic add-ons, such asaid to state governments.The economy has added882,000 jobs so far this year— but many of those were onlytemporary positions as the fed-eral government geared up toconduct the U.S. Census.Many Republicans havevoted in the past for deficit-financed benefits extension —including twice under the mostrecent Bush administration. Butwith the deficit well in excessof $1 trillion, they now say itshould be paid for with cutselsewhere in the $3.7 trillionfederal budget.After initially feeling politi-cal heat this winter when alone GOP senator, Jim Bunningof Kentucky, briefly blocked abenefits extension in February,the GOP has grown increas-ingly comfortable opposing thelegislation.Democrats said that in toughtimes the government invari-ably lengthens the eligibilityperiod for jobless benefits asmore and more people chasefewer jobs. Such efforts havebeen deficit-financed — whichpolicymakers and economistssay has a stimulative effect onthe economy.

LOS ANGELES — LindsayLohan’s time in jail will beshort, but her time away fromthe public eye will be muchlonger.Sheriff’s officials say theactress will spend only abouttwo weeks of a 90-day sentencein jail. But her brief time in anisolation cell that has housedother celebrities such as ParisHilton and Michelle Rodriguezis just one element of a sentencethat is designed to punish andrehabilitate the star.Once Lohan is releasedin early August, she will berequired to report to probationofficials within a day. She hasalso been ordered to spend threemonths at an inpatient rehab.That portion of her sentencewon’t be trimmed like her jailstint by overcrowding and cred-its for good behavior.
Despite short jail stint,Lohan won’tbe back soon
