New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 6, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas ftwvwrr-f rn -na* tetraHerald-Zeitung g Sunday, July 6,1997 □ 7A State Briefs Afer Foictt httttpM SAN ANTONIO—Ann Wait wasn’t worried about providing medical care for a profoundly disabled infant she adopted through the Air Force eight yean ago. She says she was promised the military would always take care of the child’s medical needs. After being refused service at Wilfotd Hall Medical Center Wednesday, she says the Air Force has broken its promise and left mother and child to fend for themselves. “It’s a big mess out there (at WOford Hall), and they say it’s going to get worse,” Wait said. Maj. Gen. PJC Carlton, the hospital’s commander, acknowledged several aas in services were required because of a budget shortfall. Clinical services for active-duty, retirees and dependents within Wilfoid Hall’s 40-mile catchment area would continue, he said, but medical supplies for nonactive-duty patients will no longer be provided. Wait and her late husband, a retired Naval officer, adopted 17-month-old baby Janet in 1989. The child, was severely retarded and suffered from cerebral palsy, arthritis and other problems. Grand Jury bison, whose lineage dates back more than a IOO years, will be moved to Caprock Canyons State Park. And the state is picking up the $100,000 tab for the move, officials said. The announcement comes after a year long search for a home for the bison, which has roomed the JA Ranch in the Texas Panhandle since the 1870s. Ranch manager Jay O’Brien signed an agreement last March to donate the beni to the state, after they began wrecking fences and causing other problems. file herd, which consists of 98 percent purebred bison, was started by pioneer cattleman Charles Goodnight in 1876 on JA Ranch, about 20 miles northwest of Caprock Canyons. DALLAS — Reports of corruption among former leaders of the Dallas-based Local 745 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are being investigated by a federal grand jury. The Dallas grand jury has subpoenaed the personal business records of the former leaden who are accused by a trustee of misapplying union funds and associating with the nephew of a Kansas City mobster. Former Local 745 President Charles E Rogers Jr. acknowledged receiving a subpoena, but said he (bd not expea anything to come of it “I haven’t done anything wrong,” Rogers told The Dallas Morning News.' AUSTIN — A herd of 40 to 50 MEXICO CITY — President Ernesto Zedillo is calling on Mexicans to take part in a ““great democratic fiesta,” declaring in a televised address that electoral reforms will allow a fair and free weekend vote. The balloting for much of congress, six state governors and Mexico City’s mayor is the most important since Zedillo's own election in August 1994 and could prove the biggest challenge yet to 68 years of one-party nile. “From the day I assumed the presidency of the republic, I called for political reform so that all Mexicans can live in full democracy,” Zedillo said in the text for delivery Friday night to 94 million countrymen. "Thanks to these reforms and the deep democratic conviction of the Mexican people, we have witnessed an electoral campaign without precedent in our history,” Zedillo said. But while Zedillo claims he has created a “healthy distance’’ between himself and his party, he has launched a nationwide tour to announce public works projects in the weeks leading up to the election, m what has been perceived as an attempt to bolster his party's fortune. Kuralt remembered as “best of America’ Parents blameLamar University for suicide PORT ARTHUR (AP) — Lamar University officials harassed a high school student until he committed suicide in a dorm room, according to a motion filed by the teen-ager’s parents. Gabriel Kelly’s parents, Mark and Carol, were granted a temporary restraining order preventing Lamar from destroying, altering or censoring any records dealing with their son. State District Judge James Mehaffy set a hearing on the order for 1:30 p.m. on July ll. Lamar University officials declined to comment, but said they would abide by the order. Kelly, 17, was found hanging by a lamp cord on April 30 in Brooks-Shivers Hall on the university’s Beaumont campus. He was a student at the Texas Academy for Leadership in the Humanities, a program offered by the university for gifted and talented high school students I “From an intellectual standpoint, IGabe was far superior to others his age, but he was still an emotionally ^developing teen-ager,” said his Court Records tour!

They contend that, in the months before his death, Kelly was exposed to psychological abuse and torment by supervisors hired by the university for the academy. Kelly’s parents believe the harassment stems from a World Wide Web site that their son was creating that was critical of the school. “The abuse tactics included violating university policy regarding disciplinary actions in an effort to mentally degrade the boy,” according to court documents. They contend that the school created false disciplinary notices and informed Kelly diet he had to show them to his parents. “The clear implication was that Gabc was going to be humiliated, demoted and expelled from the academy,” according to court documents. “The underlying complaint stemmed from Gibe exercising his first amendment right to create a web site that was critical of the university ” • Suzanne McCullough and Charles Walter McCullough, granted. • Gwen Arlene Scott and Timothy J.

He was 62. Kuralt died at New York Hospital from complications from lupus, an inflammatory disease dial can affect the skin, joints, kidneys and nervous system. His brother, who runs a bookstore in their native North Carolina, said Kuralt had been ill for a couple of months. “He was feeling pretty good yesterday, so it’s very unexpected,” Wallace Kuralt said The balding, pudgy Kuralt logged up to 50,000 miles a year inside his motorhome, scouring the country for rarely seen glimpses of Americana. During his travels, he did pieces on a school for unicyclists, horse-trading and a gas station/poetry factory. He interviewed professional wrestlers, a 104-year-old entertainer who performed in nursing homes, lumberjacks, whittlers and farmers. “He had just touched something that audiences responded to,” CBS colleague Charles Osgood said. “If we could think of something better to do, we’d do it But nobody can.” Retired CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite called Kuralt “one of the truly, greatly talented people in television.” Community service crews clean Hidalgo Cemetery On June 28, combined Community Service Restitution Crews from the Adult Probation Departments of Comal, Caldwell and Hays Counties worked to clean up Hidalgo Cemetery in New Braunfels. The project was initiated by Comal County Commissioner Moe Schwab after he noticed that the cemetery had become overgrown with weeds. The Community Serv ice Program has regularly scheduled work crews that work on the weekends throughout the county assisting non-profit and government agencies, so the services of the work crew were offered. Ray Castillo, District CSR supervisor, decided that crews from Caldwell and Hays counties, which are members of the three-county District Adult Probation Department, should take part in the clean up effort so that the project could be completed as quickly as possible. In the future the Hildalgo Cemetery will be placed on the Weekend Crew’s list of properties to be serviced. The Comal County CSR Program Supervisor is Henry Gutierrez, and he may be contacted at the Adult Probation Offices at 160 E. Bridge St, phone number 620-55%. one year.

Soo Ho/m CBffSBpTE Nelre-M44433 MhM-tttMO-mS ‘It’s a great loss for the country. Ho represented much that is the best of America. He loved the country, loved traveling it, he loved what he would never call the little people.’ — CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite “It’s a great loss for the country,” Cronkite told WBZjadio of Boston. “He represented much that is the best of America. He loved the country, loved traveling it, he loved what he would never call the little people.”-* ~ Kuralt joined CBS News in 1957 as a writer after working afs a reporter and columnist for the Charlotte (N.C.) News. He became a correspondent in 1959, and later became host of “CBS News Sunday Morning” and his acclaimed “On the Road with Charks Kuralt.” He retired from the Sunday program three years ago, telling his audience, “I aim to do some traveling and reading and writing.” But earlier this year, he ended his retirement to be host of the syndicated “An American Moment” — a thrice-weekly series of 90-second slices oT Americana — and for the CBS cable show “I Remember,” a weekly one-hour examination of a significant news story of the last 30 years. Winner of three Peabody awards and IO Erranys, Kuralt also wrote several books: “To The Top of the World,” “Dateline America,” “On the Road with Charles Kuralt,” “Southerners,” “North Carolina Is My Home,” and “A Life on the Road.” In 1981, he received the George Polk Memorial Award for national television reporting, and was named Broadcaster of the year in 1985 by the International Radio-Television Society. Kuralt was bom in Wilmington, N.C., on Sept. IO, 1934, the son of a social worker and a teacher. His skills as a writer became evident early, when he won an American Legion essay contest, winning a trip to Washington and a meeting with President Truman. But it was Edward R. Murrow, the legendary CBS reporter, whose voice on the radio inspired Kuralt to try journalism. Kuralt edited the student newspaper at the University of North Carolina, where he graduated in 1955. He won the 1956 Ernie Pyle Memorial Award for his offbeat, human interest columns — an interest that served him well after his switch to television. After joining CBS, he quickly impressed his bosses, with one describing Kuralt as “the next Ed Murrow.” The self-deprecating Kuralt dismissed such praise as “ridiculous.” Part of Kuralt’s appeal was his rumpled everyman look.
