The Scripps Co announced Monday that the El Paso HeraldPost will cease publication Saturday bringing an end to the era when Texas largest cities boasted competing dailies The HeraldPost the states largest afternoon paper was the victim of they want states to enact tougher seat belt laws and enforce them They want increased fines and even penalty points on a drivers record for those failing to buckle up Thats because educational efforts or fear of injury do not influence some toughtoreach groups that often do not buckle up including young men ages 16 to 25 But the federal government can only prod states to act by encouraging efforts at seat belt education or enforcement among police medical groups businesses or other groups Only 13 states and the District of Columbia allow law

NEW BRAUNFELS TX 7813Q 6299036 6090900 METRO State limit on local pay phone costs expires Associated Press Writer AUSTIN The states 25cent limit oti the cost of local pay phone calls expires Tuesday but pay phone owners say they wont hang up on quarters immediately Under orders from the Federal Communications Commission the Texas Public Utility Commission last week was forced to lift the states lid on pay phone rates for local calls Starting Wednesday owners of the nearly Texas pay phones can set their own rates for local calls FCC officials say they want competition to determine price Southwestern Bell which owns about Texas pay phones plans an announcement regarding its pay phone rates later this week But federal officials who forced the impending price changes have yet to determine a key factor in where pay phone operators will set their rates Because of that state regulators and owners say prices wont immediately change The FCC developing rules under the 1996 Federal Telecommunications Act is re evaluating the amount of money credit card and long distance companies pay pay phone owners when customers avoid the quarter charge by dialing tollfree access numbers Pat Wood chairman of the PUC said if the socalled dial around compensation is set at a good rate for pay phone owners the cost of coin paid local calls may not need to be raised That may be wishful thinking but I hope Wood said Monday An extra dime mealis the coin tray fills up more quickly and someone has to be sent out more often Labor costs Scott Pospisil executive director of the Texas Payphone Association which represents pay phone owners said prices eventually will increase But he added that few pay phone operators will go to the expense of reprogramming phones and reprinting information cards for higher coin charges until a final decision is made regarding dial around compensation The issue of dial around compensation probably wont be decided until six eight ten months from Pospisil said the next year you shouldnt look for local coin rates to be much different from what they are One phone companys rates wont be going up regardless of the dial around compensation decision its owner says Freefone of Houston owns just more than a dozen pay phonelike machines around Houston The company which sells advertising in its booths offers free threeminute local calls It doesnt offer access to long distance calls Weve formalized the courtesy said Patrick Palmer Freefone president You hear all your life there is no free lunch With this there is no hidden Palmer said Freefone is in the process of franchising across Texas and the United States Freefones advertising isnt new for the pay phone industry But Palmer said ads for most pay phone operators is extra income
