The victims, identified as Eva Dominguez. 31, her brother, Robert Ornelas, 32, and Jesse Sada Kiveria. 49. all suffered single bullet wounds from a large caliber gun in the side of the head, the medical examiner’s of fice said. Medical Examiner Roy Aguilar said the three had been dead at least eight hours when discovered by Ruben Ornelas, another brother, about 7:15 p.m. Thursday in the northside apartment. Homicide detective Bob Urban called it "the most grisly multiple murder” he’d ever seen. "There was no bit of motive that officers could determine,” Urban said. •^he woman was found in a bathroom, handcuffed and shot in the head. The two men were found sprawled on a bedroom floor, their hands tied with duct tape and bound in front, investigators said. Dominguez had a small child that was with a babysitter at the time of the killing, officers said. Detectives said they suspected a struggle occurred and the three may have been beaten before the shootings. Charitable donations down SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Local charities, hit hard by demands from earthquakes, hurricanes and other disasters this year, are having a hard time raising money this Christmas. Collections at the Salvation Army’s traditional Christmas kettles are slightly above half the total at this time last year And Red Cross officials say they fear a membership drive will fall short of its goal Louise Locker Elliott, Elf Louise director, said her program is having trouble raising money and attracting volunteers to deliver Christmas gifts to children in poor families. A recent radiothon raised $50,000, compared to $70,000 for last year. However, United Way Campaign Director Jack Miller said his organization’s fund-raising has not had any problems and, in fact, is running ll percent ahead of last year’s pace. Bill Noble, a Salvation Army spokesman, said latest figures show the kettles have received $17,729, compared to $32,209 at the same time last year. "The big surge in giving for the Mexican earthquakes and the hurricanes this year, I think that’s going to affect giving for the rest of the year,” Noble said.Computer taken from school Computer equipment was taken in the second break-in within five days at Carl Schurz Elementary. About $1,775 in computer equipment was taken from the school this week. Both break-ins, one Dec. 5 and one Monday, occurred in the teacher’s workroom of Portable Building F 2. a spokesperson at Carl Schurz said. "In the first attempt, it looked as if the burglar attempted to take some material, but stopped. Whether he was spooked or changed his mind, we don’t know,” Detective Juan Gusme with the New Braunfels police said. Monday’s break-in involved a $275 computer screen, a $900 computer keyboard and a $000 printer, the police report said. The case is still under investigation.Consultants: Airport gains importance By BANA BVKBSTBiET Staff writer New Braunfels Municipal Airport has come a long way since the 1940s when it was a trainer base for B-29 bombers. According to two consultants, the airport is turning into a hot spot in a growing city. Members of the airport advisory board Thursday night received two sets of recommendations for airport use — one an airport area land use study and the other a study of the airport’s operations. In her study of the area's existing and future land use. consultant Debra Goodwin recommended the city annex a majority of the land bounded by Interstate 35, Texas 4«» South, Alligator Creek, and the airport. By having title to the approximate ly 4,500 acres, the city would have control over what may be built on the land, how tall a structure may be, and how the land will develop There are some homes scattered throughout the agricultural area surrounding the airport now. Goodwin pointed out “The major developed areas are along Interstate 35 and Texas 46 South, most of which is commercial,” the report states "Initiating a plan in the area at this point in time is highly recommended as there is such sparse existing development.’’ the report continues "It is a much easier task to direct new growth rather than redirect existing growth or contend with non conforming uses ” Goodwin also recommended forming a joint airport board with officials from New Braunfels, Comal and Guadalupe counties. The Loop 337 extension around the city will affect the airport, Goodwin said She presented three possible routes of the road, which would tie into EM 3(Ki and lead to the airport The report also offered a plan for future development of the area surrounding the airport, calling for multi family and commercial development to remain close to the two highways The area along EM 758 is recommended for airport expansion or placement of aviation related industries The idea of developing an industrial park at the airport is commendable, according to a San Angelo consultant. "Development of this industrial site represents a real challenge for the city. Chamber of Commerce, industrial councils and the airport board,” said Al Reary, who produced a 150-page report of the airport’s potential. His document, which was paid for by the New Braunfels Industrial Foundation, addresses the airport land and its uses The booklet recommends a lease policy, operation and maintenance manual, and rules and regulations for the facility. “The airport probably is sitting in the middle of an explosion in the next IO years,” Reary told the advisory board. "In addition to the excellent location, New Braunfels is in a position to support an upgraded role with its airport facility.” Approximately 26 industries already use New Braunfels Municipal Airport with their high-performance aircraft. Now is the time. Reary said, to begin a promotional program to entice more high-performance aircraft use. Anticipating that the local airport will be designated as a reliever airport for San Antonio, Reary suggests the city adopt "some kind of solid, systematic, routine maintenance program and an operation program be put into effect.” One of his top suggestions in the hiring of a full-time airport manager. "Hire a new man with an aviation background, who has the ability to be a leader; (someone) the fixed-base operators can work with and you can work with,” Reary said. Reary also recommends that the landing fields be upgraded, that a joint city-county zoning ordinance be enacted and that the instrument lan- See AIRPORT, Page 12ADeaths Majorie Ann Jones Services for Majorie Ann Jones of Houston, will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, at Colonial Funeral Home in Pasedena.
