The temporary restraining order, temporary injunction and permanent injunction petition was filed in the 207th District Court. Lead attorney Scott Tschirhart said the case is scheduled to be heard at 9 a.m. Friday in Comal County District Court. The city council will meet Monday in exec- utive session to approve a contract for legal services to defend the city in the case. The city is considering employing San Antonio attorney William M. McKamie to represent the city. Paul Isham, former interim city attorney who handed over his duties to the city's new attorney AlanWayland on Monday has said the city needs to be in the best position to defend its ordinances. "Due to the transition, we're not really equipped to handle this case right now," he said in a previous interview. "That's why we'll be hiring a firm out of San Antonio to represent us." 4 �. , .^ -1 . . ,. .. - ^'X. .,' "j'-"C'"''-v:'- �' � : Wnat:N9W Braunfels City.Cdunoil, ; �! � WhenLSpeciaJiineetin 4 > ^ i J - JF P E 5 p.m. vy th the regu ar. - H l j �' .

Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt said Phillips bought the .38-caliber revolver and 20 rounds of ammunition March 18, two days after receiving an e-mail from his employer citing deficiencies in his job performance and outlining an improvement plan that Phillips was to follow. A copy of the e-mail was found in Phillips' lunch bag on the day of the shootings, police Lt. Larry Baimbridge said. On Friday, Phillips had lunch with Beverly and another man, police said. Then, early that afternoon, Phillips entered Beverly's office with the gun in his hand and said "You're the one who's going to get me fired," Baimbridge said. . After Beverly talked with Phillips for several 'minutes, trying to calm him and suggest ways to improve his job performance, Phillips shot him twice - once in the right leg and again in the chest, Hurtt said.

The Lower Colorado River Authority Transmission Services Corporation is proposing to build a new 345-kilovolt double-circuit transmission line known as the Clear Springs/Zorn-Hutto project. Parts of the plan also will affect landowners in Guadalupe County. The LCRA, a nonprofit conservation and reclamation district that provides energy, water and community services to Texans, plans to take the first of its three new circuits from the Clear Springs Switching Station, on Link Road in southern Guadalupe County the expanded Giileland Creek Switching Station in eastern TVavis Coun- ty. This will be accomplished by using various-^d transmission towers ranging in size from 80 See LINES, Page 11A WOW 2006 FORD TAUftUS SE i �r., juno, A/C Pwr.
