New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 7, 2007, New Braunfels, Texas Sunday, January 7, 2007 — Herald-Zeitung — Page 9AExecutions down in U.S. but not in Texas; 5 set to die this month HUNTSVILLE (AP) — The convicted killer of a 3-year-old boy is set to die this week, the first of five lethal injections scheduled this month as Texas hucks a national trend and bolsters its standing as the most active in carrying out capital punishment. Tw enty-fourcondemned Texas killers were executed in 2006, accounting for 55 percent of all the executions in the United States. While the national count of 53 was seven fewer than 2005, the Texas total was up five from the previous year. At least 11 are on the schedule already early this year, beginning with Carlos Granados, set to die Wednesday for the 1998 stabbing of a Williamson County boy, Anthony O’Brien Jimenez. The boy was killed during a domestic dispute in which Katherine Jimenez, Granados’ girlfriend and the child’s mother, suffered nearly two dozen stab wounds. The U.S. Supreme Court last month refused to review Granados’ case and his attorneys appealed to Gov. Rick Perry for clemency in a last-ditch effort to spare the 36-year-old New York City man’s life. Of the 38 states that allow capital punishment, only 14 carried out executions last year and just six of them conducted more than one. Unlike Texas, where 379 inmates have been put to death since executions resumed in 1982, executions COUNCIL CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Members voted to keep ordinance despite law conflict “I just want a consensus as to enforcement,” she said. “We have a lot of subdivisions waiting in the wings, and I want to know what we’re doing before they come before council.” Stevick said council members voted to keep the ordinance in March, even after they found that it conflicted with state law. I lowever, the city council also approved two subdivisions in 2006 that violated the ordinance’s setback and square-footage restrictions. Also during the meeting, council members will consider an ordinance that would allow municipal court jurors to be paid. The cities of New Braunfels and Garden Ridge currently pay jurors, as does Comal County. Stevick also will make a presentation to the council about the Animal Control (Committee and introduce the seven members she recently appointed. The committee will be responsible for reviewing and possibly revising the city’s current animal control ordinance. are on hold in at least IO states where death penalty laws are under review, according to the Death Penalty Information Center, a Washington-based organization that opposes capital punishment and tracks the issue. Two of those states, Illinois and New Jersey, have a formal moratorium. In the eight others — Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, More in it for you... THE POWER NEWSPAPERS EDUCATION Missouri, Ohio and South Dakota — the lethal injection process is being challenged as cruel. Executions in New York are in limbo after the state’s death penalty law in 2004 was declared unconstitutional. Granados’ punishment would begin a series of five lethal injections over 20 days in Texas, site of the nation’s first lethal injection in 1982. The four to follow this month include Johnathan Moore, convicted of killing a San Antonio police officer, and Ronald Chambers, a Dallas man who has been on death row some 31 years, longer than any of his fellow inmates in Texas and one of the longest-serving condemned inmates in the country. 880 S Business 35 (1 block North of HEB, next to Smiley’s Shoe Repair) $20 I OFF Tax Preparation 1 Not valid with other offers 830-626-9444 _   Expires    2/28/07       ' Liberty Tax Service' MANDATE CONTINUED FROM Page 1A All school coaches have been trained been trained in using the AEDs, but they haven’t had to put that training to the test. “Fortunately, we have not had to use them, and I hope we never have to. “It’s a piece of equipment you want to have and not need to use as opposed to “The AEDs are idiot-proof.” — Dean Laird New Braunfels High School athletic trainer need it and not have it,” Laird said. Using the AED is easy, he said. “The AEDs are idiot-proof,” he said. “They have pictographs and talk you through the procedure.” Kari Hutchinson, public information officer for Comal Independent School District, said Canyon High School has two AEDs and Smithson Valley I Ugh School obtained its third device this past fall. New Braunfels Middle School recently installed one AED, even though middle schools are not required by the UIL athletic committee to have them.
