Transcript AND NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS. Judge fighting pregnant worker in pay dispute VS CAROL BASSES Pes* Reporter SUNDAY, FEt MAUSTON, Wis. (AP) — A judge who fired a courthouse clerical worker for being single and pregnant is trying to block payment of the settlement she won from the county after alleging sex discrimination. Kristy Gwin, 19, of Mauston was fired from her job as the county's register in probate by Juneau County Judge William Curran last summer when he learned she was pregnant. —. He said her pregnancy proved she had violated a ! Wisconsin law prohibiting sexual intercourse by an j unmarried person. GWIN SAID SHE WAS out of work for several months, but finally was given another clerical job at the same pay in the county's Child Support Agency. However, she said, she filed a sex discrimination complaint with the state last summer, seeking back pay. The resulting out-of-court settlement with the county amounted to $2,000. But the judge has asked the County Board's personnel committee to withhold the payment. In a letter to board members, Curran said the county should not pay the settlement because that could make the county liable for taxpayer suits. The judge said he had to fire the woman under Wisconsin law prohibiting unmarried persons from sexual intercourse. "SHE KNEW SHE WAS discharged because, as a single girl, her pregnancy was obvious evidence to the public that she had violated the laws of the state of Wisconsin by sexual misconduct and her conduct made it impossible to retain her in the office of register in probate," Curran said in the letter. The full board will decide at its regular meeting Tuesday whether to disburse the $2,000. The personnel committee has only an advisory role. The judge denied that the firing involved sex discrimination. ' If, as the time go*"*?, rainy days and Mondays get you down, you're probably normal, a number of Houston pyschia- trists and psychologists agreed Sunday. However, you might worry a little about yourself if you were still down Sunday, when the sun shined throughout the The Houston Post /R <jay for the first time in more than a SUNDAY, FEi 12, , But during a long, cold, dreary month Eke January, it would have been "abnormal" for your spirits not to be dampened, said psychiatrist Dr. Gary Byrd. "I'd probably be more concerned with the person that wasn't affected," he said. He compared it to being at Pearl Harbor Sunday morning on Dec. 7, 194L "It was normal to be scared as hell or something other than bias*," he said. Of course, gloomy, wintry weather has more effect on people in Houston than those living in Bangor, Maine, Bryd said, because Houstonians are more accustomed to warm, sunny weather. "It's just human to get depressed in bad weather. There's a corelation between gloomy weather and its efiect on human beings, " said Dr. Eugene Tips, another psychiatrist. Neill Scott, a psychotherapist, said during bad weather people tend to stay indoors, watch television and "get depressed. People do better when they can be out in the sunshine." He said it's even worse in Houston because there are few winter sports here where most outdoor activities are geared toward summer activities, C~IVs epecially hard on men who like to fish and hunt and find themselves cooped up in the house on Saturday and Sunday with the wife and kids, he said.
