New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 5, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Northcliffe residents want curfew to stop crime wave •y JOHN KASTNER Correspondent Susan Grooved is looking for a little Justice — maybe a curfew to curb crime and violence the subdivision of Northcliffe has experienced recently. Residents of Northcliffe are still reacting to the murder of Kenneth Carroll one month ago in that subdivision The mans brother-in-law has been charged with the murder “I want our city officials to strongly consider enforcing a well-arranged curfew here.” Grooves said “It’s the only possible solution, or do we ward our subdivision to turn into a breeding place for crime A similar curfew idea was presented to Live Oak officials two weeks ago But the ordinance was defeated by a vote of 5 to I Mayo Galindo, Live Oak city attorney. has researched the subject “You may find you can do this in a city of this size but the ones I ve seen have violated some fundamental concepts "You re dealing with uncharted waters.” he said “You would have to be careful. All the attacks on these ordinances have been civil rights action.” Galindo said federal courts have been “liberal in striking them down” and that state courts have done the same thing. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans has in the past five years revoked a Louisiana city’s curfew ordinance Texas falls within the Jurisidiction of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Galindo added that laws with even more general terms than those in the Louisiana case are now practiced in Poteet and Corpus Christi and could not stand up in court if challenged A major problem with such ordinances, Galindo said, is the number of exceptions that would have to be listed to cover all cases, making the law difficult to enforce Galindo said that conclusion was drawn in an opinion written by Susan Rocka, assistant city attorney for the City of San Antonio, on that city's proposed curfew ordinance The San Antonio City Council did not approve the ordinance Grooves said, “I have no statistics proving juvenile crime was on the rise; however, criminal mischief and burglaries have increased here in Northcliffe during the last year “I’ve seen only one case where an ordinance was tested in the courts and still held to be valid.” she said. “Parts were stricken down, but many exceptions were written in” the law adopted by the borough of Middleton, Penn., Grooves said "If such a curfew cannot be enforced, I still have every intention of presenting issues to all governmental agencies to implement a neighborhood crime prevention program or watch for our Nor-thcltffe area,” she sa*d “We just need to let our city officials know we've got a real bad situation out here "However, we have to combine forces and spread the word door to-door, neighbor^ neighbor Grooves is determined to take a "bite out of crime” and is looking for answers that are hard to find She wants Northcliffe to be a better place to live — not a breeding place for crime Judge bans humanist texts; civil rights advocates claim ideas ruled unconstitutional MOBILE, Ala (AP) — A civil rights lawyer says a federal judge has “declared ideas unconstitutional” by virtually banning 36 books from Alabama public schools on the ground they promote secular humanism as a religion. U S. District Judge William Brevard Hand said Wednesday the use of the textbooks by the state violates the U S Constitution’s prohibition against the establishment of a religion by the state. “With these books, the state of Alabama has overstepped its mark, and must withdraw to perform its proper non-religious functions.” Hand said in the 172-page nil ing “Teaching that moral choices are purely personal and can only be based on some autonomous, as yet undiscovered and unfulfilled, inner self is a sweeping fundamental belief that must not be promoted by the public schools,” Hand said Fundamentalists say secular humanism is the elevation of transient human values over eternal spiritual ones and secular humanists believe humans can handle their own affairs without divine intervention The judge's decision immediately was attacked as a “judicial book-bumer" by former Rep John Buchanan. R-Ala. a Baptist minister and chairman of the Washington-based People for the American Way "Never before has a federal court so injected itself in to the curriculum of the public schools,’ Buchanan told a news conference People for the American Way and the American Civil Liberties Union joined the state school board in defen ding against the lawsuit filed by a group of 600 parents and teachers This is the first time to our knowledge that a federal judge has declared ideas unconstitutional said state ACLU director Mary Weidler “The decision confirms our worst fears of federal censorship over local public school matters ” In his ruling Hand said “This case is not an attempt by anyone to censor materials deemed undesirable, im proper or immoral What this case is about is the allegedly improper promotion of certain religious beliefs ” The conservative National Legal Foundation s direc tor Robert K Skolrood. an attorney for TV evangelist Pat Robertson said Hand s decision “exposes humanism for what it really is a wolf in sheep s clothing, prowling through the corridors" of schools " "I don’t think it is a ruling for conservatives I look at it as a ruling for education in America ' Skolrood told a news conference Humanism and its hidden agenda of indoctrination has been exposed to the light ” GED test to be given Saturday Stocks NKW yoKK AP I’'uhs NaMx 37% 37% 37% Morning slock* KepBankCp 22 4 21% 22 N High Loa Last sabinr 15*4 14% 15*4 AMK Corp 59*.
