defenseless Texans from powerful utility companies that arbitrarily dole out To the the only thing the rules would do is protect a few customers who might be looking for free Consumers who pay their bills would wind up also paying for the according to the Utilities have been given a dangerous Essen a freedom to said Willo Hardin of representing the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now Hardin told Public Utility Commission Hearing Examiner Mark Zeppa at a Tuesday hearing that utility terminations kill people in Texas every The funny thing is a utility customer has no

customers of their Deferred payment plans for delinquent residential Bilingual termination A formal hearing process before Company officials who testified Tuesday echoed the same arguments the proposed rules would be costly and that cost would be passed on to paying The rules are not they because company policies protect well intentioned Tom Curlee of Central Power and Light There are a lot of people who tamper with their This is the group that will benefit most from rules like James Steinhilper of Southwestern Electric Power said it would cost a year for his company to send annual

the South Texas cattle man said after finding the bull with its tongue and heart cut Some people have said it was persons from the devil but they would have had to be using a helicopter to get around out Heath said he is baffled by the which resembles a rash of similar mutilations two years ago in eastern Cameron Its very he said after finding the body of his best bull Sunday There were no tracks around the It was like he was hit and just fell over on his There was some blood coming out of its but in the other there was no blood at The typical 1978 attacks involved clean incisions to remove some or all of the animals reproductive heart and Texas Ranger Bruce Casteel of Harlingen was one of several state and local officers who investigated the wave of mutilations in Mosi of the cattle I looked at I would say had been if thats what you want to call by like he I didnt go out and look at all of I didnt see the ones Heath is talking Casteel Heath said he is convinced scavengers did not kill the You dont walk up to a bull like that He was he said of the And there were no puncture marks where a tranquilizer gun had shot he This they cut a perfectly round hole above the left cut through a muscle to get to the I have a degree in animal science and Ive had to do animal Theres no way a person could do that with a he His theory is that the wound was burned with a laserlike Nothing would touch that Usually you know a dog will run up to anything and sniff The dogs ran up to this and just turned tail and ran in the other he Heath said he has dragged the carcass to the middle of the pasture to Its too muddy out there to do much else and its too wet to burn he Other ranchers might want to keep an eye on their herds to see if other deaths he Somebody ought to call Thats Incredible or one of those shows because no one has been able to explain this Just because you give a customer a statement of his rights doesnt mean he is going to read said Jeb Loveless of
