TX HOUSE OKS 'CHOOSE LIFE' LICENSE PLATES  AUSTIN (AP) — Texans may soon be able to declare their opposition to abortion on their license plates.  The House gave preliminary approval to a measure that would authorize license plates that say “Choose Life.” Texas offers 200 specialty plates.  Money raised by the plates would be used to help pregnant women who are considering giving up a child for adoption, infants awaiting adoption, pregnancy testing or adoption-related counseling.  House Democrats opposed the bill, arguing that it was inappropriate to put a political slogan on state license plates.  They also expressed concern that the money would  go to unproven, unregulated programs.  The Senate has already approved the measure. After a final vote, the bill will go to the governor.  Clarence ‘Melvin’ Hoffman  Clarence “Melvin” Hoffman went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 30,  2011 at the age of 81.  He was bom in Waco TX on July 8,1929 but moved to Victoria TX at the age of 6.  While considering Victoria his hometown, he spent the last 8 112 years in New Braunfels, TX living with his daughter, Dehra Watson and her husband Mark.  Besides his daughter and son-in-law,  Melvin is survived by 2 sons, Christian Fellowship Church Clarence David Hoffman of Hurst TX and Daniel Maurice Hoffman of San Antonio TX.  Also surviving are 5 grandchildren, Hayley & (Jonathan)  Platt, Jeremy Rother, Britt &  (Kelli) Watson, Kara & (Len)  Driskell, Tracy Hoffman, 9 great-grandchildren and brothers Jeddie Royce, Ronald Wayne, Billy Lee Hoffman and a sister Lou & (Bob) Price as well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin Clarence and Bessie Lee Hoffman.  Melvin was a Master Electrician working along beside his father and brothers at Hoffman Electric in Victoria in his early years and he later founded Central Electric. He served in the army during the Korean War, was a lifetime member of the American legion, V.F.W. and a member of Dayspring  in New Braunfels. For the last 4 years he loved going to My Friends Haus adult daycare where he was loved by many friends and staff. The family would like to especially thank the staff at My Friends Haus for making him feel so special.  A Celebration of Life service will be held at Dayspring Christian Fellowship on Saturday, May 7 at 11:00 with lunch to follow.

The 19-12 vote in favor of the concealed guns measure was significant because it was the first by either the full Senate or House on an issue that has become a flashpoint of controversy in the session.  But minutes later, Sen. Judith Zafiirini, D-Laredo, who opposes the measure and was angered that one of her bills was changed to add the guns issue, pulled the bill from further consideration and vowed to let it die.  The moves leaves the guns issue stuck in limbo at the start of the final month of the legislative session. Sen., Jeff Wentworth, R-San Antonio, vowed to keep trying to pass it before the session ends.  “This is not a revolutionary and new idea,” Wentworth said after Zaffirini cut off debate by pulling the bill down.  The bill seemed assured passage when the session began in January.  The Senate had approved a similar measure in 2009, and more than 80 lawmakers in the 150-member House had signed on as co-authors this year. Supporters hoped numbers like those, and the support of Republican Gov. Rick Perry, would push the bill through this year, but the bill ran into the unexpected roadblock in the Senate.  Wentworth’s first attempt to pass the bill last month failed when he fell one vote shy of the 21 needed to bring a bill up for debate.  Two Democrats, Sens. Eddie Lucio of Brownsville and Mario Gallegos of Houston, who had initially pledged their support, changed their minds.

Senate passage amounts to a rebuke of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, who have come under fire for alle-gations of poor financial planning and mismanagement of the Alamo.  The Texas attorney general’s office is also investigating the group.  The Senate bill would put the Alamo under the wing of the Texas General Land Office while leaving the Daughters as the caretakers. Ihe office would enter into a contract with the Daughters for the operation and maintenance of the landmark.  But the Daughters would be subject to stricter reporting requirements and have  to submit financial information to the office — a crucial provision for supporters.  Sen. Leticia Van De Putte, D-San Antonio, who authored the bill, said the legislation should resolve the ongoing concerns over the landmark’s management and the attorney general’s investigation.  "This means they can no longer make decisions in secret," Van De Putte said. “We really do need to have this sort of transparency and clarity. We should hold our Alamo in no less esteem than we hold our state Capitol"  Van De Putte originally intended to give the Iexas Historical Commission control over the historic site, but the bill she brought to the floor Thursday would put the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in command. Fierce opposition from a fellow San Antonio senator caused her to reconsider.  TEXAS PUTS INMATE TO DEATH WITH NEW DRUG  HUNTSVILLE (AP) — A man convicted of raping and strangling a woman in 2001 has become the first inmate put to death in Texas using a new three-drug cocktail.  Texas executed Cary Kerr on Tuesday after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to delay his scheduled execution to consider his claim that one of his lawyers had failed him.  The lethal injection used Tuesday substituted the sedative pentobarbital for  sodium thiopental. Texas recently switched the sedative it uses in its lethal three-drug combination because sodium thiopental used since 1982 is no longer available. Pentobarbital already has been used for executions in Oklahoma and Ohio.  Kerr’s appeal didn’t challenge the switch. Rather, he argued that a lawyer didn’t properly represent him while he was appealing his conviction in the death of 34-year-old Pamela Horton.
