NBISD schools closing for a week to conserve By Scott Sticker The Herald-Zeitung A New Braunfels man accused of stabbing his live-in girlfriend's brother took the stand Wednesday in the third day of his ongoing murder trial. Edwardo Sanchez, 26, faces from five to 99 years in prison for thealle^ stabbing death of 37-year-old Fer-n a n d o Ortegon. Authorities allege Sanchez drove a knife through Oregon's heart and back, killing him in the early morning hours in March 2008. Closing arguments are expected to be heard about 9 a.m. today. The trial is being heard by 207th District ludge Jack Robison. Officers responding to an aggravated assault call about 1 a.m. on March 23, 2008, found Ortegon lying dead in the street. His blood trailed the 1100 block of Winston Edwardo Sanchez Avenue in the Walnut Mobile Home Community off Interstate 35 frontage road near Walnut Street, police reported. Witnesses at the scene — including Ortegon's sister and Sanchez's girlfriend, OraUa Alvarado—told police that Sanchez stabbed Ortegon in the midst of an argument. Police initially believed Sanchez and Alvarado were married through common law. Alvarado told police Sanchez had taken her identification, a debit card and at least $6 in cash from her house where they were hav-ing drinks earlier that evening. Ortegon and Alvarado trailed Sanchez to Winston Avenue, where Alvarado said they confronted him and demanded the debit card and identification. Alvarado said that's when Sanchez stabbed Ortegon. Sanchez told the jury of nine men and four women Wednesday that he stabbed Ortegon out of self defense. He spoke through a Spanish spe^ng interpreter.

AUSTIN (AP) — TheTexas Legislature convened a special session Wednesday and immediately took steps to extend the life of several key state agencies. It was another matter — whether to extend tiie state's «»ckP»«^ authority to enter certain public-private road building contracts — that could end up getting shoved off track as lawmakers try to wrap up the special session before the July Fourth holiday weekend. Republican Gov. Rick Perry caUed ti^ Legislature back to Austin to address three issues: preventing the agencies from expiring in 2010, authorizing $2 billion in bonds for road building and the transportation contracts. Lawmakers flailed to approve those items in the regular session that ended June 1. The Senate quickly passed the bill extending the Department of TVansporta-tion, the Department of Insurance and three other smaller agencies until Sept. 1,2011. The House is expected to pass the bill as early as Thursday. Those agencies were supposed to be part of the normal renew and review process under Texas law during the regular session. But they got shoved aside when partisan bickering See SESSION, Page 3A MORli iP IT r<|i YOU^.^ EDUCATION
