already filled the air this year con cerning law enforcement on the river Last week the Commissioners Court of Comal County approved a contract with the Water Oriented Recreation District for supplemental law enforce ment services on the river This year the WORD board approved more dollars for law enforcement on the river up from a year ago Sheriff Jack Bremer said this money would go toward additional hours for reserve officers A concentrated effort was made two years ago after unruly behavior on the river started to gain attention not only locally where it was known for sometime but in several large publications through out the state Bremer said improvements can be seen We learned to prioritize pick the bad spots and get the biggest bang fdr the he said But problems do remain especially on the big hol iday weekends Many say alcohol is the main reason and the committee of WORD even suggested looking at banning alcohol on the river a motion that was tabled at the board meeting County Judge Carter Casteel said banning alcohol on the river was something that probably needed to at least be discussed among the public Many people feel like we ought to enforce those laws already she said Others feel like alco hol is the root of all these Sheriff Bremer said he favored a ban from his pro fessional view From a pure law enforcement standpoint an alco hol ban would certainly be high on the he said The reality of it I doubt it would ever While some might think the need for more law enforcement personnel would be decreased with a ban Bremer disagrees at least for the present In the beginning I think it would take an increase in law enforcement the first one or two he said It would take a lot of people to enforce that Some have suggested a container ban which would perhaps quell some of the drinking activity and aid in the litter problem While about onethird of WORDS budget goes to law enforcement another third is put toward litter and river cleanup Some would like the cleanup funds strengthened One outfitter and campground operator Paul Rich said he would stamp every container with a Mountain Breeze logo the name of his camp When they bring them back Ill give them 10 cents credit on a purchase or he said The regular WORD board meeting has been sched uled for March at the Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative North Carolina man gets 50 years for

overhaul Senator Jeff Wentworth RSan Antonio this week filed legislation which would place violent juvenile offenders within the jurisdiction of the adult criminal courts This legislation is a revolutionary step in the direction of holding juveniles accountable for their said Wentworth I believe that the most effective way to curb juvenile crime is to catch offenders early when they commit minor offenses such as truancy By sending violent juvenile offenders to adult criminal court juve nile courts would be available to deal with nonviolent offenders early By getting more juvenile offenders in court sooner we wiU have resources equal to mag nitude of the juvenile crime problem Bexar County Criminal District Attorney Steve HilWg conducted an informal study last month of the disposi tions of over 400 offenders in Bexar County In 1994 an average of months passed between the time juvenile offenders committed a violent offense and the time they were punished For nonviolent offenders the average length of time from the date of the offense to the date of punishment or disposition was seven to eight months Misdemeanor juvenile offenders were not punished for an average of eight to nine months after the offense This data demonstrates the crowded condition of the juvenile souiV said Wentworth The juvenile court nile offenders arjid even longer periods of time to deal with nonviolent offenders Senate Bill 951 would open the adult criminal courts to violent juvenile offenders and thereby enable the juvenile court to deal with nonviolent offenders sooner Punishment for truancy or shoplifting eight or nine months after the offense fails to a sage to juveniles that criminal behavior will not be tol tew a prosecute juvenile court to certify the juvenile offender to stand trial as an adult In deciding the petition the juvenile court must consider whether the juvenile court will be able to offer adequate protection of the public Call 6259144 for subscription news
