CARROLL Hsreld-ZeMung Judge Robert Pfeuffer denied a bond reduction request Wednesday for Kirk Wayne McBride, whose sexual assault and kidnapping charges were overthrown and remanded back to trial McBride was convicted in 1990for sexual assault, kidnapping and two counts of aggravated sexual assault. He was sentenced to four 99-year sen tences. However, an appeals court overturned McBride's conviction because the search warrant used to obtain blood samples in the case was insufficient Currently, McBride's bond is $50,000 per count for a total of $200,000. McBride was asking for a total bond of $25,000. Assistant District Attorney Robert Fisher called Texas Department of Corrections Parole Officer Marshal Brent Zoboroski to testify during the hearing on behalf of the state. Zoboroeki said McBride was convicted of delivery of a controlled substance in 1986 and given probation. The parole officer also said that when McBride was charged with sexual assault and kidnapping, the act constituted a violation of his parole. “Kirk Wayne McBride had a conviction for delivery of drugs and... Mr. Zoboroski of the parole board testified that he had an additional 13 years to do down at the pen itentiary and thus they had a hold on him and he can't be turned loose regardless, because he is an inmate," District Attorney Bill Reimer said. Wade Ariedge, McBride’s attorney, asked Zoboroski to produce written documentation of the violation, but the documents were unavailable at the hearing. Ariedge said if no documentation could be produced regarding McBride's previous conviction and parole violation, he would attempt another bond reduction. TWC stalls on permit action Legislative move on aquifer awaited By ROSE MARIE EASH Herald-Zeitung The Texas Water Commission delayed a derision on the issuance of a permit for the Living Waters catfish farm until June 2—effectively until the Legislature makes a derision on management of the Edwards Aquifer. According to a spokesman for tile Texas Water Commission, the staff requested the continuance to give the Office of Hearing Examiners more time to get answers on additional questions they had on the catfish form application. The TWC spokesman said the delay also would allow for passage of some management legislation which would put the permit under a broader application. He said the TWC hopes to avoid duplicating legislative efforts or having to rewrite the permit Representatives for the Edwards Aquifer Underground District and the Living Waters catfish farm had no objections to the delay.    f, “Originally we were opposed to any continuance," said Gilbert Vasques, legal counsel for tile EUWD. "However, now we are pleased with the terms. We ariled for a 90-day continuance pointing out Judge Bunton’* derision and the resulting TWC deadline and legislative deadline. It’s ridiculous for the TWC to make a derision now when the rules may change." Vasques said EUWD was opposed to the continuance originally because of they were concerned ritisens who had been encouraged to attend the hearing would be disappointed if the hearing were postponed. He said EUWD was confidant now that the public interest is best served by the continuance. The EUWD and the San Antonio River Authority have See PERMIT, page 2 INTERSTATE SPILL New Braunfels firefighters and Highway Department workers clean up diesel fuel spined from an eighteen-wheeler truck invoked in an accident on the Interstate Highway 35 southbound ext ramp at the Highway 725 exit Wednesday morning.

DARE officer claims 6,000 students reached by program By GARY OCARROLL Heroin Tikiinp Tho New Braunfels Drug Abuts Resistance Education program, designed to keep kids off drugs, has reached more than 6,000 youngsters sines its inception In 1990, according to Now Braunfels’ first DARE officer Robert Owens. Tho DARE program attache crime from a different trifle and trios to stop crime before it has a chance to start by educating kids to the dangers of drugs and crime. The DARE program is an ongoing program presented by Owens and officer Bob Parchman to school children in schools throughout Comal County. Although the program focuses primarily on drug prevention, Owens said crime such as abuse and stranger danger are also die-sussed. The riy thing wstoe looking fi»r is education," Owens said. “lf we can get them to not want (drugs) and to stay away from it, then we're doing good.” Owens said he and Parchman are involved in the DARE pro gram not to get anything out of it, but to give something back to the community in the form of welleducated responsible children.
