New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 11, 1993, New Braunfels, Texas In The News OSHA fines Texaco $147,500 for fire LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal inspectors fined Texaco $147,500 for alleged safety violations in a 1992 explosion and fire at a refinery. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration imposed the fines and cited Texaco Thursday for 29 alleged violations. “Texaco believes that the citations issued by OSHA are not consistent with the facts surrounding the incident and intends to review the citations with the agency," said a Texaco spokeswoman. Earlier in the week, state regulators fined the company $85,000. Hispanics win rights as jury members TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Hispanics cannot be kept off juries just because of their ethnicity, the state Supreme Court said, extending a 9-year-old rule designed to prevent discrimination against blacks. Florida’s high court made one exception in 1984 to a rule allowing lawyers to eliminate some prospective jurors without explanation, a tool called peremptory challenges. The court said Florida’s Hispanic population is large enough and distinct enough to qualify for the same protection afforded blacks.

Walk donations still needed The Veterans Memorial Brick Walk will not be dedicated on Memorial day as previously planned, according to Fred Linger, chairman of the Veterans Memorial Committee. The lack of an acceptable bid has held up the dedication, but Linger said the dedication will take place as part of local Independence day observance. Current donations for the project are being accepted in $35 increments, which will allow the donor to have a brick engraved with tne name of a veteran, rank, service and conflict in which the veteran served. The bricks wiil form a walk around the monument which stands in Solms Park. Linger said that on June I, the required donations would increase to $50. Veterans may have served in any conflict in which U.S. military took part, from the U.S. Revolution to Desert Storm, Linger said. r.......................... ....... ....................................I Extended Forecast Today Monday Sunny Partly cloudy Chance of rain: Chance of rain: 30% Lows in the 50s Lows in the 60s Highs in the 80s Highs in the 80s Tuesday Wednesday Cloudy Cloudy Chance of rain: Chance of rain: 40% Lows in the 60s Lows in the 50s Highs in the 80s Highs in the 80s Fox Custom Construction, Inc.
