Third Administrative Judicial Region judge sent in a proposal for a grant to fund a cluster court in his region which includes Comal County I was presented an opportunity and I saw a need so I decided to go for Schraub said This type of cooperation Hurley said brought the new court into being The district court judges recog nized the court would better serve our children and they were very supportive of the she said Local CPS staff CASA workers prosecutors and law enforcement officials involved in and concerned about the welfare of children worked together to make this clus ter court project As an associate judge Hathcock was selected by Schraub rather than elected Local government officials agreed to make Comal County the host county for the cluster court Hathcock said his permanent office will be in the Comal County Courthouse Annex but he will tray el regularly throughout the area to hear cases Hathcock who got his law degree from the University of Texas at Austin taught a Childrens Rights Clinic at the law school for the past 10 years while also representing CPS cases He said the new cluster court pro vides continuity to the court sys tem because one judge will preside over all hearings I will also be able to devote more time and more individual attention to each case to reach a quick Hathcock said He said CPS staff would spend less time in court and more time devoted to working with families and children These are serious cases and its important that we get it right A poor decision and a child could be seriously injured or killed or a child could be separated unnecessarily from his he said I want to emphasize that this new court does not mean that children were being illserved before now This is just an opportunity to better serve children in the foster care Rose Orsborn regional director of Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services said oth er cluster courts in Texas including those in the San Antonio area East Texas and the Rio Grande Valley area were successful in handling CPS cases A fifth cluster court is planned for the Laredo area 1A charging them But we have 75 per cent of the viewing audience in the San Antonio area They could be putting pressure on the bigger com Williams said close to San Antonio area residents sub scribe to Time Warner Heidtke said Fox was open to let ting Time Warner defer the addi tional costs into the next budget cycle If that was an issue to make this happen we would offer it he said Deferring the additional costs was part of the original offer that the local Time Warner Cable office accepted in a verbal agreement in January Heidtke said They were going to share in the costs and defer them to a later he said But the corporate office didnt agree to Williams said there never was a verbal agreement The agreement was subject to corporate he said The corporate office in New York looked at the entire deal and reject ed it he said Once the deal was rejected Fox tried to create different offers Hei dtke said However Time Warner came back with offers that werent he said With every counter offer though Fox would raise the costs Williams said Thats why we dont have an he said They didnt give a realistic Accepting any of Foxs offers would have translated into increased rates for Time Warner Cable cus tomers this year or morethannor mal increases next year he said When you look at the total costs even with the deferral it does nt make Williams said Its too expensive And you put yourself in a less competitive Instead Tune Warner will tele cast the eight games in question at local establishments free of charge Free hotdogs soda and popcorn will be served he said Alcohol is not allowed The first three games will be tele cast from several screens at Wursthalle in Lancia Park including Tuesdays game against Miami Heat the March 2 game against the Minnesota Timberwolves and the March 14 game against the Atlanta Hawks Doors open at 6 Time Warner has not decided on locations for a telecast for the fol lowing games March 18 against the Denver Nuggets March 22 against the Clippers March 25 against the Cleveland Cavaliers April 5 against the Sacramento Kings and April 17 against the Van couver Grizzlies 1A Texas that subsidizes rural fire pre vention Scheel said We dont want to slight Comal County residents of adequate fire protec tion I am proud of the facilities equipment and protection provided to citizens but you have to draw the line BVFD located at 23600 Farmto Market Road 3009 is the only fire department contracted by rural fire prevention district No 3 Commissioners cut funding for RFPD No 3 from in 1999 to for the year 2000 However the district will collect about in tax revenue for more than it collected the previous year Scheel said if the overall revenue collected by the districts decreased from one year to the next the coun ty would not decrease its subsidy that year But BVFD board members said commissioners are not factoring in annual increases in operational costs such as inflation and the manpower and equipment neces sary to keep up with projected growth in the district BVFD treasurer Marsha Kern said payroll alone will cost BVFD in 2000 The department budgeted for three fulltime firefighters in 2000 an expense board members said was necessary because of a decrease in volunteer participation You cant count on volunteer labor Kern said Weve had to hire people to cover the In an effort to gain public support in its opposition to the iunding cuts BVFD board recently sent letters to about residents who reside in RFPD No district that contracts BVFD In the letter BVFD accused com missioners of deciding during the 2000 budget process to withhold previously committed funds to the rural fire departments Scheel said the letters were mis leading to constituents I think commissioners were very upset by the Scheel said We did not cut funding for the dis tricts entirely we do is slowly back out of the funding as their tax base When referring to the previous ly committed Kern said board members were referring to a verbal commitment by commis sioners to fund the districts Since the inception of the fire district they have made a commit ment to supplementally fund the Kem said When the districts were formed former County Judge Carter Cas teel made a verbal agreement with us that funds from the county would still be coming into the fire depart Millikin said the letter sent to res idents who all reside in his a onesided pic ture of the decision to decrease county funding BVFD is not the only rural fire department feeling the crunch of budgetary constraints Scott Campbell Spring Branch Volunteer Fire Department Chief said he was surprised by commis sioners decision to decrease fund ing of the districts I expected to receive the same amount we have been given in recent years I did not like the sur prise factor of Campbell said But its just another obstacle as volunteer fire departments that we have to overcome It makes us have to find other ways to fund the Unlimited Internet Personal Commercial No Gimmicks Just Internet I 8884378392 When You Need Room For Your Crossover Junction Trading
