water Test results give go ahead for water fountains to be used again at school By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Students and teachers at Bill Brown Elementary arc no longer using bottled water The company that originally installed the water system iSpasvGlass fulfilled their agreement with the school district to replace components of the system They changed the filters put in new filters and flush said Maintenance Director Roy Linnartz Bill Brown water fountains and bathroom faucets were shut down last year in response to lead being found in certain tests conducted by the state Although water fountains tested clear they were closed as a precaution The Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission office tested again following the repairs in December Test results received this month gave the go ahead for faucets to be turned on SpawGlass agreed to replace the pipes although they maintain the problem originated with the soil and sediment which settled in the pipes By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Highway checkpoints arc moving closer to implementation and if the State Legislature moves sonic sort of regulation through check points could become common on Texas road ways Just lasl week the Third of Appeals of Texas in Austin affirmed the conviction of Vic loriano Gonzalex caught with 90 pounds of mar ijuana in Comal County as part of a checkpoint conducted by the Alamo Area Narcotics Task Lorce in December of 1992 Although officers did not actually stop the man at the checkpoint they did apprehend him after he made an illegal Utuin on Interstate 35 and led them on a highspeed chase Search and arrest followed Distiict Attorney Bill Keimer said the check point proved effective mainly through a sign prior to the actual checkpoint v Inch stated Nar cotics Checkpoint Ahead Drisc Many Affirmation of local case clears way for possible legislation allowing checkpoints make illegal turns before the checkpoints allowing officers to detain them on traffic viola tions Officials stopped the checkpoints however towait outcome of court challenges We were basically waiting for an opinion of somo kind on said Reimer We didnt want lo do something that was Keimcr says court decisions have affirmed the legality of checkpoints The United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Michigan rule allowing checkpoints but only through certain set standards Another appellate court in Texas ruled that checkpoints could be applied but only through standards set by a Politically Accountable Gov crnmu Reimer said police organizations district attor ney offices the Department of Public Safety and others have all sent proposals to the Legislature this session An assistant in Rep Edmund Kuem pels office said attorneys are currently reviewing a proposal but any committee hearing would not come for at least a month Many might argue that checkpoints point soci ety toward a police state or that it violates con stitutional rights of private property Reimer says drug traffickers are taking advan tage of taxpayer by using highways to transport drugs When people obtain a drivers license they agree not to violate certain laws Why not include transporting drugs he said Reimer says the standards would not alloss long stops courts have allowed anywhere from to reality two minutes or less Officers could not hold someone for search unless there were some prob able cause and a search if alerted by a police dog could not happen without a magistrates authority You cant just go rummaging through some ones said Reimer Lt Sumner Bowen of the AANTF said some kind of option is needed With the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement drug traffic is increasing Lt Bowen said many of their big drug busts often have a luck factor involved Checkpoints can be very disruptive for drug he said They can throw wellplaced operations out of He admitted however that checkpoints will also put the spotlight on officers and their behav ior Thats the reason we have to be careful how its he said Police officers get in trou ble because they abuse the rights given to Local teacher faces uphill climb back to recovery By RICHARD STONE t 11 If Paula Warlike just
