for traffic offenses Both suspects are from San Antonio Evidence of Asian campaign money aired By JAMES ROWLEY Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON AP The first week of Senate hearings on campaign fund raising produced evidence that foreign banks wired two Democratic Party donors large sums of cash before they made questionable contributions Yogesh K Gandhi received two wire transfers totaling from a Japanese businessman around the time he wrote a check to the Democratic National Committee according to records released by the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee Additionally California businessman Johnny Chung received a wire transfer from the Bank of China three days before he delivered to Hillary Rodham Clintons chief of staff a check made out to the DNC records show The contributions were among the million that the DNC returned because the money came from questionable sources The DNC returned 12 donations from Chung or his company totaling The disclosures of evidence tying the contributions to overseas money capped two days of testimony by former DNC finance director Richard Sullivan the first witness in a set of hearings on the flow of foreign money to the coffers of both major political parties The hearings are scheduled to resume Tuesday Sullivan clearly frustrated attempts by Republican senators to get him to say he was nervous about hiring John Huang as a fundraiser because he feared Huang would raise foreign donations Sullivan insisted that he merely feared that Huang was too inexperienced a fundraiser to take on the task of spearheading a new DNC effort to raise money among Asian Americans The Democratic outreach in the Asian community was something of a new effort by virtue of some of the community being new players on the Sullivan testified during a six hour session Thursday characterized by combative sparring with GOP senators Sullivan acknowledged that he became concerned that several foreigners attended fundraising events with Clinton that had been set up by Huang The DNC should be concentrating on inviting citizens to such events because they were eligible to make donations Sullivan said One of the events where he noticed foreigners in attendance was the May 13 1996 fundraiser at the Sheraton Carlton Hotel Also present was Gandhi a California resident who professes to be a distant relative of Mohandas Gandhi Indias late independence leader and preacher Thomas Garza Jr From Page 1 to come into the city Ferguson explained Kuhn currently operates in San Marcos and New Braunfels Since New Braunfels has no ordinance covering horsedrawn carriages Kuhn has been given special permission by the city to operate in New Braunfels Kuhn who lives near Gruene and McKenna has been a horsedrawn carriage operator for 15 years said he was a responsible operator who made sure his horses were healthy did not work them too hard kept them out of the heat and had updated equipment But he said an ordinance was needed because other operators may not be as responsible as he was If you dont have an ordinance they could bring shoddy Kuhn said The ordinance should be set up to protect the city from bad If you dont meet the requirements you dont operate A lot of people are not responsibley that is why you have the Kuhn said the horses health should also be considered as well I believe you should have a city Kuhn said They operators could take their horse to him or her once or twice a Kuhn said any potential ordinance should require a drivers license for carriage drivers training posting of rates inspections of carriages diapers on the horses and reflecting lights on the carriage Kuhn said he would like to see Gruene and Landa Park opened more to the carriages Landa Park is not open which is a sin since we have a good city Kuhn said Ferguson said the reason Gruene and Landa Park were not opened was because of traffic concerns the city had about those areas Board chairman Mike Norton said Kuhn gave the board a lot of information to consider Hes got a lot of good Norton said I have so many other questions I want Norten said the board had the goal of coming up with a draft ordinance by its next meeting in August From Page 1 presented by Sorensen A Texas town of about residents located about 20 or 30 miles from a major metropolitan area has a thriving community hospital A capitalrich company such as Columbia Healthcare or HCA builds a clinic in the town and competes with the community hospital for doctors and patients This challenges the profitability margin of the community hospital in an industry in which a 5 percent Kaffee profit on gross revenue is considered outstanding Sorensen said the corporation has the financial resources to win such a standoff The big corporations can divide the allegiances of the local medical staff who ultimately decide which health care facility to admit their patients Sorensen said Texas has a reputation for corporations closing hospitals that it has purchased even in onehospital townsr Sorensen said If a health care corporation buys a hospital in a town with access to an urban area they might close the local hospital and funnel the patients to their facility in the Sorensen said They will not subsidize the community to the extent a notforprofit While a corporate hospital does not inherently provide poor health care to its patients its motivation differs from that of a community hospital Sorensen said Traditionally the emphasis of health care has been effectiveness not cost The corporations presume effectiveness and are oriented toward Sorensen said Efficiency is driven by dollars effectiveness is driven by the quality of health Johnny Johnson president and CEO of McKenna acknowledged the possibility of a corporate competitor in the future Any hospital any system could build a hospital in New Johnson said The state of Texas doesnt regulate capitalism but such a facility would have to apply to the state for a Johnson said that while such a move was possible it was unlikely He added that McKenna has two important factors working in its favor to prevent a corporate invasion Our medical staff is very loyal and as long as we are able to maintain that loyalty our hospital will be Johnson said Also our patients and our citizens dont want to go to San Antonio I believe the community would reject any health care entity that would encourage them to do Obituary ThomuGanuJr Thomas Garza age 28 of New Braunfels died Wednesday July 9 1997 at the Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio He was bom August to
