Saturday morning when the young Nacogdoches man was shocked out of his sleep by a telephone call from his brother in The message was brief Dad has become a Their father had been executed by the fanatical Islamic government of the Ayatollah Ruholla At 5 the next morning the phone rang This time the news was even Saeid Eshraghhi learned that his mother and sister had been for their refusal to recant their belief in the Bahai Nearly a week after learning of his the 34 yearold native of Iran reflected on life in his former country and on the death of his parents and The executions were carried out despite the pleadings of governments and organiztions throughout the Khomeini allegedly pointed to the personal plea of Ronald Reagan as an indication of the Baha is Eshraghi hopes his story will help ignite a global outcry loud enough to stop the executions and religious persecution of some Bahais in a country boiling with Islamic Eshraghi is now coowner of an Italian restaurant in When he left Iran for Boston in 1978 he had no inkling of the events that would soon rock his He planned to train as an architect and go In a subdued Eshraghi recalled arriving in Boston for language studies five years about a year before Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi was forced to flee Iran and Khomeini set up his Islamic After studying Eshraghi went to Kilgore Junior College to begin architectural But after the when he could not longer get money out of his he took a job in a local restaurant to support himself and his Two months later he was He then took a job as manager in the restaurant that he now partly Eshraghi still has a sister in another sister in Nigeria and a brother in Although he didnt expect the when it did Eshraghi knew the Bahais would Bahais were the target of persecution from the Members of the faith had their homes burned and religious gathering places The persecution didnt touch Eshraghi personally until when his family in Shiraz was arrested and held for three day on suspicion of coun terrevolutionary Eshraghi explained that almost all members of the Bahai faith in Iran are of the middle or upper middle His for had been an executive for Irans national oil company before the My family had lived in Shiraz for along time and my dad was a very nice He never had an enemy in his He loved people and they had a lot of people come to the Eshraghi In a letter to his Eshragis father said he had been arrested because of the number of people seen coming and going from the family Middle Eastern experts say it was the middle class that was most responsible for ousting the Eshraghi The Bahais took the brunt of the Eshraghi They were fired from their and benefits for those who had like his were Bahai members were executed or imprisoned on charges ranging from spying to being When Eshraghis family was arrested for the second time in Shiraz nine months they werent Secret trials were held and 22 people were condemned to death unless they agreed to renounce their His sister who remained free was allowed to visit her mother and sibling for three minutes once a In June she asked her father for per mission to marry her Her father consented and she was engaged on the afternoon of June Earlier that same her father and five other Bahais were executed by The next week her mother annd sister were Its such a waste for Eshraghi Back in time Saddle shop takes visitors to 1800s era SULPHUR SPRINGS AP On a side street near the railroad tracks just off Oak theres a small shop in a sheet metal building set among tanks and brick buildings of the last Step inside and the smell of horses and men takes the visitor into the The Frontier Saddlery is a saddle shop and the work place of two or craftspersons Inez Garcia and Faye It is also a place where an item for everyday use is made lovingly by Garcia is a sad dlemaker and Geiger is a leather The only piece of powered machinery in the place is a sewing Garcia and Geiger pooled their resources which consisted mostly of their experience and a shared dream just over a year We didnt have any either one of but we had thought about it for a long and the time came when we had to do Garcia They had worked for a wellknown saddlery for a number of years Garcia for 16 years and Geiger for Garcia said he kept thinking about making something that carried his stamp and his He wanted to create something that was uniquely his own that would be recognized by men and women who use saddles as a quality and maybe even become one of the legends among sad dlemakers whose names are mentioned with near reverence by But its hard to walk away from a Garcia said years spent just tanking about Making it as cuttom aaddlemakm haint bMn the two Garcia said that at times they were so broke that a shared Coke was a We could only buy one Coke and split Garcia recalls with a small The business is growing as their reputation has Were not getting Never Garcia But thats not what is Dont get me wrong I like money and want to make But making something that is really good a quality that is respected is what is important to he The designs for the saddles are the result of collaboration between saddlemaker and Garcia I like to try new but if the customer wants something different to try their we work on it until we get something that suits the he ex The craftsmen said that much of their knowledge comes not only from their years of building but from learning from the work of older sad dlemakers whose saddles they tear down to repair or I learn something new with almost every saddle we make or Garcia I dont think anyone can ever know everything about this Suiting the customer is the primary goal of their It has to suit the man and the Garcia says that the heart of a good saddle is the The ones he uses are made of carefully cured Pon derosa pine and wrapped in raw you can buy the best tree but there is no way to know if it will If it it will make a sore on the horse or cause the
