printed on recycled newsprint Fraser defeats Kahlig again By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Mayor Paul Fraser emerged victorious yester day in the trial to settle the lawsuit Gary Kahlig brought against him The suit alleged the May 1994 election had been invalid due to election irregularities Kahlig ran against Fraser in that election for the Dist 4 city council seat Frasers attorney Ed Nolan requested that the judge impose sanctions on Kahligs attorneys for pursuing a frivolous lawsuit District Judge Joe Dibrell deliberated only five minutes before handing down his ruling There was no clear and convincing evidence that the election was not properly said Dibrell The judge said he had already ruled on the invalid vote of Juan R Rodriguez Barring that vote evidence supported only one matter to view the distance of the markers at the Frazier Ele mentary polling place he said The contestant Kahlig must prove that voters were prevented from exercising their rights said Dibrell There was no clear and convincing Nolan called only two witnesses in Frasers defense two election officials from the Texas Secretary of States office Director of Election Administration Melinda Nicholas was present at the recount of the May 7 votes In my opinion the recount was one of the most properly conducted that I have she said Kahlig tried unsuccessfully in his cross exam ination to make Nicholas admit that City Secre tary Veronica Sarkozi had overstepped her author Weve got a very clean election process and its because of Veronica Ed Nolan Attorney for Paul Fraser Ed Nolan Thats the prob lem with the court system today It is con trolled by attor Gary Kahlig Gary Kahlig ity in carrying out her duties during the election I cant for the life of me find anywhere in this book that gives authority to the city he said pointing to the Texas Election Code Nolan called Election Examiner James Nino to the stand Nino had observed and written reports on the May 7 election at Districts 1 2 and 4 Nino testified that the distance markers at Frazier Elementary met the There didnt appear to be anything abnor Nino said Kahlig said in his closing argument that elec tioneering is clearly a political activity and is guarded by Amendment 9 of the He said that his familys constitutional rights had been violated by the misplacement of the dis tance marker at Frazier Elementary Kahlig asked that the judge grant a new election Kahlig attempted to discredit Sarkozis role in the May 7 election If the court adopted your position on said Dibrell then every elec tion in Texas is I dont think theres any doubt that he has not met his burden of Nolan said in his closing He acknowledged that the miscast vote of Rodriguez had been the one mistake in conduct ing the election It certainly wouldnt have affect ed the outcome of this election he said Nolan asked Dibrell that there be a finding that this case was filed without He put forth a motion for a hearing under Rule 13 for sanctions on Kahligs attorneys Rule 13 states that an attorney and possibly his client can be held liable if they file a lawsuit the judge holds to be groundless or frivolous Dibrell agreed to set a hearing at a later date Thats not of great he said because it doesnt bear on the I think this is a classic case for Rule said Nolan after the trial He said Dibrells ruling showed that the May 7 election was clean I think weve go to put a stop to the thought that the court plays a part in the election process in this he said Weve got a very clean election process and its because of Veronica said Nolan Nolan said Daniel Behitez had been used by the Kahlig campaign when he was asked to fill out affidavits and serve as a notary public with no training You can see the guy cant tell a said Nolan and he wouldnt intentionally do anything Nolan commended Atanacio Campos for his help in Frasers defense He donated himself he said I think you did well in representing said Dibrell to but I warned you that iif was a mistake not to retain Kahlig said that he would make the same deci sions if he had it to do over again Because I believe that I was he said Something is wrong with the legal system if jt is so complex that a person cannot effectively act in court on his own behalf said Kahlig Thats the problem with the court system he said It is controlled by Fraser said he was most pleased that the verdicj exonerated the city employees and their conduct in the election and regretted that the quality of their work had ever been challenged I just want the world to know what great men Ed Nolan and Nacho Campos said Frasen The two attorneys took Frasers defense at no cost They went to bat for something they believed he said Youth ArtBeat on tap Saturday First annual event to feature talents of

Writer Property owners around Lake Dunlap are once again trying to raise funds to fight the hydrilla plant problem at the lake As much as will have to be raised to match other funds so the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department can treat the lake with a chemical Aquathol K like they did last year The funds must be raised by the end of February said the president of the Lake Dunlap Property Owners Association Mike White Weve come at it a hundred different ways but they tell us the chemical is the best way to do White said The treatment was first applied last year to kill the top layer of the dense plant a process the declared successful The problem is that the chemical does not kill the entire plant which grows back Its going to grow back every said White Concerns rose over the use of chemicals as some residents feared adverse affects The lake level had to be lowered and the water could not be used for a period of a little more than a week Options included introducing a type of carp into the lake which feeds on the plant But wildlife officials fear the carp will escape downstream and wipe out native plants Although hydrilla sometimes provides a nice fishing habitat especially for bass many residents say the boating dangers caused by the thick growth outweigh that White said the plant becomes so thick it traps debris sent downstream from New Braunfels The property owners are asking for four levels of donations for bronze level for silver for gold and for platinum White said he believes the organization will be able to raise the needed A yard sale is
