Hundreds Raised Following Sikh Temple Shooting

 OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) - Officials at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee are treading carefully as they figure out how to distribute hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations that poured in after last month's deadly shooting rampage.
     The donations are expected to total between $500,000 and $600,000. Money will be given to families of the six worshippers killed and the two injured.
     However, deciding who gets how much money can lead to in-fighting, as has happened elsewhere.
     So temple leaders sought the advice of a consultant who directed victims' payments after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Ken Feinberg recommended that all the dead victims' survivors get equal amounts, even though one victim was 84. He says that's fairest. 
     Temple officials say they'll proceed slowly to make sure all parties are treated justly.
