The goal is to cut water use by 15 percent “I ask all of our citizens to redouble their efforts to reduce our water use aa a community,'' said City Manager Lady D. Gilley. “We have very serious drought conditions developing that will pose major risks to foe Sui Marcos River and to foe endangered species that are protected by federal law.” Corpus Christi Schools Bet-tls Lawsuit Ovar Prayer at to Marion residents with tips on how they can do their part in helping conserve water. “We have a situation (in Marion) where we have little industrial usage,” Hild said. “Eighty to eighty-five percent of it (water usage) is residential usage.'* Iffld said he would attend a public hearing before foe EUWD board cm Thursday, May 2 at,4 p.m. at the Comal County Courthouse Annex. In other business, Councilman Clarence Jackson updated the council on progress on the city’s attempt at getting a medical clinic for Marion. The proposed clinic would be located at the old post office building right next to city hall. “I contacted Don Richey, administrator for Guadalupe Valley Hospital (in Seguin), and he met with foe mayor and I last Thureday,” Jackson said. “He looked at the facility and was receptive to foe idea. He said foe first step for us was to send a survey to foe citizens of Marion and foe surrounding area to see if there is an interest for foe clinic. They feel that if the facility is going to succeed it would need to average 25 person a week. If we can't get that warning to other schools. “Government attempts at intimidation or interference with the students' prayers will not be tolerated,” Kelly Shackelford, a spokesman for the group’s Dallas branch, said Wednesday. Senator on Bingo Pinal Employed by San Antonio 'Bingo King* SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Sen. Frank Madia, a member of a state panel overseeing bingo enterprises in Texas, is a paid employee of San Antonio’s “bingo king,” according to a copyright story in the San Antonio Express-News.

The cost to renovate foe old post office and make it into a clinic would be around $40,000-$50,000 and $25,000 for equipment, Jackson said. A medical director's salary for one month would be $2,000. Jackson said the city could lode into getting a grant or having a private doctor set up practice in Marion. Councilman Felix Arambula said a dune is needed, but that the city cannot incur the high costs associated with foe project “It would almost be unfeasible to do it as a city service because of our financial situation,” Arambula said. “I don’t see how we would compete.” Hild said he would go ahead and said surveys to citizens cm die subject and see what response the city gets from those surveys before taking any more action on the idea of the proposed clinic. edges his bingo king title, foe newspaper reported in Wednesday's editions. But foe businessman, who owns five Home Health Care Solutions Inc. branches throughout foe state, says his relationship with Madia is neither illegal nor shady. Madia, a 24-year veteran lawmaker elected to the Senate in 1992, also denied any conflict of interest. The three-member special panel on which he serves is taking public input to determine if state laws governing Texas’ $636 million-a-year bingo industry need to be rewritten during the Legislature’s 1997 session. Charities that rent bingo halls have complained about high rents and low returns. Madia said he does not give preferential treatment to hall owners and agrees rents are too high.
