New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 2, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas Wednesday, Fob. 2,1994 H Heratt-Zelung Noose tightens; Gi Bv The Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore.—As the noose of suspicion tightened Hound Tony* Harding, her lawyer urged Olympic officials not to throw her off the team based on her ex-husband's claim she gave the OK for the attack on Nancy Kerrigan. “All Tonya is asking for is her measure of fairness andjurispmdence that is represented by every one of the team members who will be wearing the United States flag on their uniforms," Robert C. Weaver Jr. said Tuesday. Weaver made the appeal after Harding's exhusband, Jeff Gillooly, pleaded guilty to racketeering and agreed to testify that Harding approved the Jan. 6 attack that knocked Kerri gan out ofU.S. figure skating championships, the qualifying competition for die Olympics this month in Ullehammer, Norway. In exchange for the guilty idea, prosecutors agreed to recommend two years in prison and a $100,000 fine. In Gillooly's statement to the FBI, released Tuesday, he said Harding wanted Kerrigan out of the way because Kerrigan “was the favorite af the U.S. Figure Skating Association." ‘OK, let's do it," Gillooly quoted Harding as saying of the plot A special committee began meeting this week to look into whether Harding violated the association's ethics code and forfeited her place on the Olympic team. The panel expects to make a recommendation by week’s end. Gillooly's lawyer, Ron Hoevet, said he expected Harding to be charged. He urged the U.S. Olympic Committee to drop Harding ftom the team, and added his own advice to the skater. “Denial is no longer plausible," he said. The truth about this bizarre crime has now been revealed." Harding again denied involvement in the attack, in which Kerrigan was dubbed in the knee. Last week, Harding said she didn't learn until four days afterward that people dose to her were involved. She has not been charged. “Gillooly's accusations appear to evidence a continued practice of abusive conduct intended to disrupt Tonya's lift and destroy her career," Harding's lawyers said in a statement Weaver also said he is certain figure skating and Olympic officials “ate going to follow their constitution, regulations and guidelines and are not going to embrace this notion of Mr. Gillooly's attorney that they can be some kind of rump committee and bump her off the team, a position on which she has worked very hard to put herself on and which she richly deserves." Gillooly and Harding divorced last year, then reconciled and lived together until Harding's Jan. 18 meeting with the FBI, when she announced that they were splitting so she could concentrate on skating. She has accused him of hitting her. Authorities also released statements that alleged hitman Shane Slant and alleged getaway driver Derrick Smith made to fire FBI. Shawn Eckhart*, Harding’s bodyguard, has also been charged.

Redskins ready to hire Cowboys assistant Turner By The Associated Press_ ASHBURN, Va. —The Washington Redskins are looking to Dallas offensive coordinator Norv Ulmer to be another Joe Gibbs and turn their fortunes around. Two years after winning the Super Bowl, Washington plummeted to a 4-12 record this past season. The Redskins scheduled a news conference today to formally announce a successor to fired coach Richie Petitbon after Turner met for mote than five hours Tuesday with team owner Jack Kent Cooke and general manager Charley Casseriy. “Well see you all tomorrow," Turn er said cheerfully, departing in a car with Casseriy Tuesday night ftom the Redskins' headquarters here, 35 miles west of the nation's capital. TUmer and Cooke shook hands on a multi-year contract, The Washington Post, reported, quoting sources. The length cf the contract and salary were not mentioned, although three years is normal for NFL head coaches. Petitbon had a two-year contract with an annual salary of $450,000. 28-4A Continued from 8A particularly in the basketball programs. In a preseason coaches' poll, the top six boys' teams were Alamo Heights, New Braunfels, Clemens, Boerne, Kerrville Tivy and Uvalde. Five of those six are leaving, which has New Braunfels' Cliff Wilkins and Canyon's Kenny Rotzler excited about the future. Ifs the best thing thafs happened to me concerning realignment since rve been in the coaching business, "Wilkins said. "You cast help but be tickled. Bedrop, Lockhart and Hays are good teams, but you're talking about not having some teams in Boerne and Alamo Heights that have averaged 20 wins for foe last nine or IO seasons.” Rotter said the six-team district may throw a wrench in scheduling, but would help the Cougars. "It's good for Canyon, basketball wise," Rotzler said. "I've always liked a 10-game district schedule more than a 14. Fourteen games gets really long." Rotzler added that another plus would be the fact that the three new schools have many crossover athletes from football to basketball, making it more even for Canyon since the Cougars have many athletes in a similar situation who miss the beginning of basketball season. But Nowotny wasn't so happy about the realignment, particularly with the six-man format. Football has only one district game, not two like basketball, and a smaller number of games means more pressure to start the district season strong. "i'm not a big fan of six-team districts, but we've got to do the best we can," Nowotny said. "It's hard to say whether this will help us, because the talent is good in other sports. How do you know? Not having Alamo Heights and Boerne will help some sports, but we've still got to contend with the new ones." District 27-4A is aligned with 28-4A for the first round of the playoffs. Canyon's volleyball team lost to Austin Westlake in the Region IV Finals, but the Chapparals have moved up to 5A. Schools will continue to finalize football schedules Wednesday, coaches said. fr •CHRISTIAN PARENTS* LIMITED OPENINGS AVAIL.

All changes are tentative because schools have until Feb. 14 to submit a written appeal that the State Conference and Ditfxict Assignment Review Board will hear Feb. 18. Successful appeals also can by challenged by other schools. Realignment, and the subsequent reshuffling of districts, is an adjustment of the classes based on a range of Average Daily Membership, a number derived by a formula that basically meant a school*! total For example, Class 4 A includes all schools with ADMs between 715 and 1,509. In file 1992 realignment, the Class 4A cutoff was 1,599. Uting the new figures, the UIL kept Class 5 A OL 240 schools and increased Class 3A by four schools to 220. Class 2A decreased by five to 210 and Class A breaks down into 124 11-man schools and 84 playing six-man. “The thing people have to understand is that we do this every two years to address the issue of equity," Contreras said. One school likely feeling they got the short end of the equity stick is Houston Davis. The Panthers began their dubious tereak in 1985 as a 5A achoo! and continued toting when they went into 4A in 1992. But foe 1993 season ended with a victory and hope foe program wu on its way up. Coach Chuck Arnold probably didn't think that boost mean joining the more competitive 5A level. The jump won't be u difficult an adjustment for AAM Consolidated, although the Tigea had their problems foe last time they were in 5 A. AAM went 3-17 in 1986-87, then dropped backto4A. Since returning, the Tigers have become the dan of the data, winning the state title in 1991, finishing second in 1992 and reaching the semifinals in 1990 and 1993. Southlake Carroll enjoyed even more success in 3 A.    « The Dragons had seven straight undefeated regular seasons, won a state-record 71 consecutive regular season games and won foe last two state titles. Carroll also won the 3A boy's basketball crown last year. Coach Bob Ledbetter bu been prepared for the move and foe Dragons have played mostly 4A teams in non-district. By foe way, Ledbetter turned Carroll into a 3A power after they moved up ftom 2A. So, here's who coming into 4A. The first group it 3A schools like Canon that are moving up. They include Canyon, Foci Worth Castleberry, Fredericksburg, Kauftnan, Lampasas, Mabank, Marble Falls, Rock- port-Fulton, South San Antonio West and Wylie. Next are 5A schools dropping down. They indude Canutillo, Cleburne, Dal-lu South Oak Clift Dallas Spruce, El Paso, El Paso Jefferson, El Paso Parkland, Houston Jones, Houston Wal-trip, Rosenberg Lamar, San Antonio Burbank, San Antonio Fox Tech, San Antonio Sam Houston, Sherman and Victoria Stroman. Also joining 4A are new schools Brownsville Lopez and Denton West Here's the list of schools joining Davis and AAM Consolidated in the move up to 5A. They are Austin Travis, Austin Westlake, Garland Naa-man Forest, Georgetown, Houston Fun; Leander, Port Neches-G roves, Plainview and Tomball. New schools joining 5A will be El Paso Franklin and Laredo Alexander. Class 3A ii getting two teams ftom 4A: Lindale and Fort Worth Diamond Hill-Jarvis, which forfeited its final seven football games last year because of a lack of players. GET YOUR $$ FAST!
