Cralgmlie Traffic stop leads to big drug haul DPS officer discovers worth of marijuana during stop By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff WrKer Three hundred and six pounds of marijuana valued at were seized Saturday when Trooper IV Scott Haag of the New Braunfels office of the Department of Public Safety made a routine traffic stop I stopped a GMC pickup with Texas license plates on it for a traffic said Haag The driver did not have a drivers license His name was Thomas Mendoza Fegundo and he was 31 years old His arrest and the subsequent search of the vehi cle led to the location of the marijuana found in the tool box of the vehicle and also under the hood The driver said he was going from Laredo to The stop was made in the Whataburger parking lot just before Saturday The suspect had been traveling northbound on Interstate 35 just before the Guadalupe River when Haag intercepted him The vehicles right turn signal was not working and the right brake light was not working according to Haag Also the vehi cle had a farm truck registration but did not look like a farm truck to the officer The driver did not have any identification on him and Haag said the suspect may be a Mexican national The vehicle was registered in Washington state and the tool box had a Washington address on it The Texas license plates did not match the truck and were traced back to a different vehicle out of Laredo Fegundo was arrested and placed in the Comal County Jail Arraignment is expected this morning Justice Department rules against EAA By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Writer Local officials were devastated by the Justice Departments ruling Friday that the appointed Edwards Aquifer Authority board was in violation of the Voting Rights Act Im disappointed that the Justice Department has treated a natural resource as though it could be divided up by one man one said County Judge Carter Casteel It cant Theyre ignor ing that if thats true San Antonio could have 24 votes and we would have one Thats wrong Our water supply would be controlled by San Antonio and we know how they have handled it in the Casteel said she had no problem with the board being elected if the current representation remained to balance the San Antonio delegation The Department of Justice Civil Rights Division notified the Texas Secretary of State Election Division Friday Nov 19 that the dis solution of the EUWD with an elected governing body and its replacement by the EAA with an appointed board continues to be legally unen forceable According to Doug Miller who has been Comal Countys appointed board member the rul ing has significant consequences He said the entire area could be forced into a position of fed eral control or if a special session is called to revise the legislation that created the EAA the opportunity for changes that would erode pro tection for the Comal Springs could occur Im said Miller I understand peoples concerns with voting rights but all along that was a San County issue Im only concerned about the one vote issue If thats what happens weve lost The East downstream and the West have lost It really affects the people of the Guadalupe basin and especially the San Marcos and Comal Edward Underground Water District board member Kenneth Ikels also expressed disap pointment at the ailing Ikels said although the EUWD would continue until the EAA board issue was resolved it only has jurisdiction over Bexar Comal and Hays counties not over the entire aquifer and its recharge areas The EUWD also has no authority to restrict pumping which could severely affect local springs Locals who have been involved in the fight to protect the springs will meet on Monday to dis cuss the situation and determine what can be done to insure that the efforts and progress made will not be completely undone due to the Justice Departments ruling The EUWD includes a population of according to the 1990 census percent of which are Hispanic The Hispanic share of the vot ing age population is percent Ninetyfour percent of the total population is located in Bexar County Although the EAA would have jurisdiction over a larger area than the EUWD including Uvalde Medina and portions of other counties the population would not be significantly altered since nearly 87 percent of the population would still be in Bexar County Because none of bodies responsible for making the appointments have a Hispanic majority and only the appointing bodies within Bexar County have any substantial His panic representation the Justice Department said it appeared Hispanic voters would have consid erably less influence over the selection of board members than they do currently Because it has not been suggested that the EAA method of selecting the board was necessary to ensure that it would have appropriate powers and the mandate to manage the use of the aquifer and in spite of some attempt to assure minority representation on the Bexar County delegation Turner said in his letter to Hannah that under fed eral law the states efforts were not an adequate substitute for existing electoral rights The state does have the right to seek a declara tory judgement from the District Court for the District of Columbia that the proposed change has neither a discriminatory purpose nor effect The state may also request that the Attorney Gen eral reconsider the objection Until the objection is withdrawn or a judg ment from the District of Columbia court is obtained the EUWD cannot be dissolved and replaced by the EAA Chamber to present budget to city council again Monday By JENNIFER ROMPEL
