An arbitrator has ordered Walt Disney World to reinstate three performers who were dismissed when they refused to wear soiled spandex unitards as part of their costumes for ``Lion King'' show.
 
The arbitrator ruled Monday that Disney violated language in a collective bargaining agreement guaranteeing that all costumes be clean and dry before performers use them.
 
Disney said the workers carried out an unauthorized work stoppage when they refused to put on the wet unitards last June, forcing the cancellation of a show.
 
The workers said their clean unitards became wet and sullied while hanging from a rack where sweaty costumes were pushed up against them.
 
The clean-costume provision was added to the agreement more than a decade ago after incidents of rashes, scabies and other infections.
 The Senate Ethics Committee has publicly reprimanded the chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus and fined him $6,000. A report released Tuesday accused Democratic Representative.

Citadel concludes investigation into allegations of hazing
 
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) The Citadel reports 19 cadets have been recommended for suspension, dismissal or expulsion following a school investigation into hazing.
 
The probe began earlier this year after the military college's commandant, Navy Capt. Geno Paluso, asked for cadets to be surveyed about hazing. The final results were released Tuesday.
 
The probe resulted in 85 allegations, 53 of which were not considered hazing but violations of the school's military training rules. Those cases resulted in on-campus punishments for those involved.
 
The 19 cadets involved in the hazing cases are appealing their punishments.
 
Under school rules, suspension lasts a semester and dismissal lasts two but in both cases cadets have an option to return. Cadets who are expelled or who resign may never return. Withdrawal is voluntary and students may reapply for admission.
 
 
A group that opposes raising gas or other taxes to pay for roads until the South Carolina Department of Transportation is reformed is staging a protest at a Greenville gas station.
 
The station will reduce its prices Wednesday while members of Americans for Prosperity discuss why they want Gov. Nikki Haley fully in charge of DOT before the agency gets any more money.
 
Americans For Prosperity will pay the 45 cents that drivers now pay in state and federal gas taxes in addition to the 10-cent gas tax increase proposed by some lawmakers. The event starts at 7:30 a.m. at Eagles gas station west of downtown Greenville.
 
Americans for Prosperity holds a similar event on Thursday afternoon at Express Petroleum in Summerville
