"The repercussions of this multibillion-dollar change in federal taxation will be felt across the country, in high and low tax states, and in every city. county and school district.” said the report, commissioned by the Coalition Against Double Taxation, a group of government, business and labor officials Under a Reagan administration proposal to simples the federal tax code, some deductions would be eliminated, but the overall tax rate w ould be reduced Elimination of the state and local tax deduction might appear a benefit to a low-tax state like Texas because it could draw businesses and wealth) individuals awa) from high-lax states But an economic study commissioned b> a group of government, business and labor officials contends the disadvantages nu* weigh the benefits The average Texan who itemized and took the state and k>cal tax deduction saved $404 in 1982, according to the report The report >aid 42 4 percent of Texans itemize deductions, and estimated that 99 percent of itemizing taxpayers take the state and local tax deductions See TAX, Page IZA Tubing the Comal Tube tour Members of the Rivers Oversight Committee donned swimsuits and grabbed their tubes Tuesday for a tube tour down the Comal River.

In closing arguments this morning. District Attorney Bill Schroeder said he felt like ‘ execution” was more appropriate a word than “murder” to describe the case against Amaro. "Taking someone out to a country road and emptying a 357 Magnum into their back, that s execution,” he concluded. Hernandez’ body was found on April 20 about 15 feet from the edge of Wegner Road by a fisherman. He had been shot six tunes in the back. Travis County Medical Examiner Dr. Roberto Bayardo testified Tuesday that all six wounds were fatal in nature, and the bullets used were not ordinary projectiles Schroeder called the bullets that entered Hernandez’ body “projectiles of total destruction. As soon as they enter the body, they begin to peel from the outer core downward, destroying everything in its way. “Six of those (projectiles) went into that body. Think about the mind, tow sinister a person must be to stand there and pull the trigger,” Schroeder said. See MURDER.

Page IZA CORPUS CHRISTI (AP I - A state agency today began cleaning gooey oil from Mustang and Padre Island beaches that has chased some tourists away from the popular vacation spots.

Nueces County Commissioner J.P Lube said Meanwhile, the amount of oil washing up on beaches has decreased. Luby said. Most of the oil came ashore Sunday and some on Monday, with little additional oil arriving Tuesday, he said Officials said they have been unable to determine the source of the .a!

See story Page 2A CISD eyes SVHS site By DEBBIE DeLOACH Staff writer Comal ISD will start looking for water on a 60.5-acre tract of land at the intersection of Highway 46 and Smithson Valley Road next week. If the well digger finds an adequate supply of water, the land will be purchased as the "perfect” site for the new Smithson Valley Highschool. CISD Superintendent Bill Brown said the proposed site was “the best one we’ve looked at. If we can hit water, it’ll be outstanding. It’s a good location for transportation and growth. All I can say is ifs perfect.” At their Tuesday night meeting, trustees approved the land option agreement and gave the go-ahead to drill for water. Harvey Pape, CISD director of transportation, said drilling would begin sometime next week. “The Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative and a game ranch nearby both have good wells,” Pape said. “So we don’t foresee a problem.” Board President Leroy Goodson said lie was 99 percent sure the site was where the new SVHS would be built. The campus will set back from the Smithson Valley Road-46 intersection, and take up 54 of the 60.5 acres. The rest of the acreage will be devoted to a half-circle road connecting 46 and Smithson Valley Road in front of the campus. "This site is just across 46 from Whispering Hills subdivision, and it’s about two or three miles from the present Smithson Valley High School,” Pape said. "It’s my understanding they looked at this same site when they built Smithson Valley, but couldn’t buy it at that time," Brown said. If an adequate supply of water is found and the district can secure a clear title to the land. Goodson said the purchase price w ill be $5,000 per acre. In other action, the board denied two student transfers, but waived tuition for eight others. Brown recommended the two be denied because their present school systems could offer better service than CISD. The other See CISD, Page I2A Proposed SVHS building site ;
