Doeppenschmidt Funeral Home Texas Today Lawyer Makes Astronomy Hobby Pay Off With Big Discovery HOUSTON (AP) — Edward £zczepanski spends his days working Tor one of Texas’ most prestigious law firms and his spare time at night gazing into the sky. The nighttime gazing has earned him the distinction of becoming the first amateur astronomer in Texas to discover a comet in nearly 30 years. Szczepanski, who specializes in photographing faint objects in the sky, noticed the object earlier this week on film taken of a distant galaxy near the Big Dipper. His discovery quickly was confirmed and the comet has been named C/1996 Bl Szczepanski. It is the second comet found this year. Szczepanski, an attorney with Ful-bright & Jaworski, has enjoyed his astronomy hobby for 14 years.

Bush says he’ll lead the charge to combat a “crisis” in Texas education: hun dreds of thousands of school children who cannot read. The governor Wednesday called on educators, parents and businesses to join in the effort, saying he’ll work to boost support around the state and to funnel millions of dollars toward improving reading through such initiatives as reading academies. “It is a catastrophe when 350,000 students cannot read. ... We must do something about it right now, and that’s what we intend to do,” Bush said. “The crisis is obvious in the numbers.” One in four of the school children Southernwood hardens Native Designs and Consultation • Perennials • Herbs • Native Plants • Aquatic Plants • Antique Roses • Soils St Bark Mulch Bob Fitzsimmons, Proprietor 608-9160 Daily hours: M-F 8-5 Sat 8-5 Sun 12-5 IO Sm Antonio 458 Lamb Street • New Braunfels who took the state-required reading skills test last year failed it, he said. Of those 350,000 who didn’t pass, 90,000 were third- and fourth-graders. Bush delivered his message at the Administrators’ Midwinter Conference on Education, sponsored by the Texas Education Agency. He also challenged parents to read with their children a half-hour a day, at least three times a week. His goal, Bush said, is for Texas students to read on grade level by the end of third grade, “and then we must keep them reading on grade level throughout their entire public school careers.” Bush said he will: — Ask the Legislature in the next session to set aside $35 million for reading academies, intensive reading skills programs in schools. Schools might set aside half the day for reading, for example, he said. — Rally volunteers from the private sector and corporations. He said he has already met with business leaders to urge them to give time and money to help teach reading. — Join his wife, Laura, and his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush, today to announce a Barbara Bush Foundation literacy initiative for school children and their families. This will involve about $100,000 in “seed money” the first year. GIFT BOOKS AVAILABLE WALNUT 6 629-6400 IH 35 and Walnut Ave. Subscribe to the Herald-Zeitung by calling 625-9144.
