Fort Hood woman says she was harassed
KILLEEN, Texas (AP) — A Fon Hood enlisted woman says her battle to see the military man who had sex with her underage daughter punished turned into a fight against harassment and indifference from Army officials.
The case involves her 14-year-old daughter, a 30-year-old staff sergeant who admitted he had sex with the underage girl and a military system at Fort Hood that she says victimized her.
Staff Sgt. Barbara McCorkle, mother of the victim and a military policewoman assigned to the 4th Infantry Division said she was called “vindictive” and a “liar” by Army officials.
A public affairs spokesman for the Army at Fort Hood said Wednesday that the military is very concerned about the case and said he is making every attempt to examine, learn from and resolve the issue.
The illicit sexual liaison occurred on March 22, 1996, in a Killeen motel and was documented in a signed judicial confession. McCorkle said her daughter told her about the incident.
Majority Lfdtr Armey weighs race for president
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Majority Leader Dick Armey is weighing a race for the White House in 2000, with the hope of uniting the party's economic and social conservatives, according to Republican officials.
These officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Armey has discussed a race only in general terms, and has yet to begin any formal planning. Any decision to run, if it comes, won’t be made for a year, they said.
Mike Franc, a spokesman for Armey, said Monday the Texas lawmaker was “focused IOO percent on being the best majority leader we’ve ever had.” The spokesman

added, “There’s no planning, no active consideration being made of anything related to a presidential campaign.”
Armey’s tentative interest in the campaign comes at a time when many Republicans are weighing their future plans. Only six weeks after Bob Dole’s defeat, several potential candidates for the next campaign are beginning to emerge.
The list includes Steve Forbes and Lamar Alexander, both of whom ran unsuccessfully for the nomination earlier this year, as well as Govs. John Engler of Michigan and Mike Leavitt of Utah. And many supporters expect Dole’s running mate, Jack Kemp, to be a candidate.
Judy* says pastor-in-schools program is OK
BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that a program bringing volunteer clergy members into Beaumont public school classrooms doesn’t violate the constitutional church-state separation and may continue.
U.S. District Judge Joe Fisher on Monday denied a request filed by an attorney for three anonymous Beaumont Independent School District parents who sought a restraining order to stop the Clergy in Schools program.
“The court feels clergymen may volunteer and serve a very worthy purpose, and have,” Fisher said after the hearing. “The court does not find that there’s any violation of Constitutional rights.”
Volunteer clergy members, including leaders from several Christian denominations and a Jewish rabbi, have visited Beaumont schools since September to meet with groups of students selected to represent a cross-section of the student body.
Students may choose not to attend the meetings, but parents are not asked for permission, according to testimony.
Deadbeat parents arrested in roundup effort
AUSTIN (AP) — Christmas time or not, parents who are delinquent on their child support payments might Find themselves in jail during the holiday season, says Texas Attorney C ieneral Dan Morales.
“Far too many children will not have a special meal nor receive a special gift because one of their parents is not contributing to their financial support,” Morales said on Monday. “Spending time behind bars during the holidays is the proper message for these delinquent parents."
Thirteen people were arrested in Travis County Monday as part of a special roundup of delinquent parents, Morales said, adding that similar efforts will be occurring across the state.
Delinquent parents in Houston, Dallas and the rest of the state need to know “that similar types of activities will be ongoing in their areas as well,” Morales said.
Of the more than 408,000 in Texas who owe back child support, about 219,600 were making no efforts to pay up as of October 1996, according to Morales’ office.
