New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 9, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas 6A New Braunfels Herald Zeitung Wednesday, February 9, 1983 Chagra acquittal may affect appeals SAN ANTONIO (AF) — Defense attorneys say Jainiel “Jiminy” Chagra’s acquittal in the assassination of U.S. District Judge John H. Wood Jr. could help three co-defendants win appeals, but two jurors say the three received fair trials. A Jacksonville, Fla., jury on Monday found Chagra innocent of hiring a hit man to murder Wood. However, in a separate trial here last year. Charles V. Harrelson was con victed of accepting $250,000 from Chagra to kill Wood. Chagra’s wife. Elizabeth, was convicted of conspiring to murder Wood and to obstruct justice, and Harrelson’s wife, Jo Ann, was convicted of conspiracy to obstruct justice. Harrelson’s lawyer, Tom Sharpe Jr. of Brownsville, said Tuesday that extensive publicity in San Antonio made a fair trial impossible. Chagra was acquitted, Sharpe said, because “you had a forum in Florida who were not prejudging everything.” But two of the jurors in the San Antonio trial said the proceedings were fair and unbiased. “I live in San Antonio and I was not up to date on things,” said jury foreman Kathleen Mills. “In fact, I was amazed at how little I knew." Patricia Schultz-Or-mand, who broke down in tears as the verdicts were read Dec. 14, said the defendants “got a fair trial.” Sharpe said he filed a motion in federal court Friday to have the case against his client dismissed, and that more motions were forthcoming. He said he planned to meet with Harrelson today. Bexar County District Attorney Sam Millsap Jr. says he still wants to seek the death sentence for Harrelson in state court. But    Sharpe questioned “whether the state of Texas can try Charles Harrelson on capital charges. Shantytown? White makes point on walking tour AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. Mark White took a group of reporters on a walking tour of the seamier side of Austin to back up his statement that some jobless Texans are living in Depression-like poverty. Nancy Hunt and Randy Sheilds, shanty-dwellers within a mile of the Capitol, dramatized White’s point. "To me it’s a little hard to believe we have these circumstances here in this country,” White said during the Tuesday walking and bus tour. The tour was prompted by a comment White made Saturday in Washington. “All you have to do is walk a few blocks from our Capitol there in Austin as I did two days ago, to find people living in makeshift shacks of cardboard with a piece of plastic the only roof over their head,” White told the Democratic National Committee. One day later, a newspaper story — headlined “ Austinites Can’t Find the Shacks” - quoted Austin officials as saying they didn’t know what White was talking about. The governor made good on his comments Tuesday. “I want the community to recognize we do have these problems. It’s also important the members of the press recognize it,” said White. The governor sent employees earlier Tuesday to make sure the .shanties he had spotted were still there, and to tell the residents White might drop by. Near the banks of Waller Creek, about a dozen blocks from the Capitol, White pointed out a small encampment among the bare trees. Ms. Hunt told White aides she didn’t want to talk to the governor. “Why did someone try to get him down here?” she said, seated near a fire in a barrel. Bill would prevent another Tent City' “I have nothing to say to him. I meant no offense in any way,” she said. “I would get dressed properly to see the governor." Three people live at the site. The only shelters are a plastic-covered tent and a shanty made of wood, cardboard and other scavenged materials. Nevertheless, Ms. Hunt said ifs “no different than camping out anywhere.” She’s been at the site for six months, she said. “I have a possibility of getting back into cafe work,” she said. White’s next stop was the Salvation Army, where a bus took him and reporters to the second shanty he found. “Have you been to the Texas Employment Commission?" White asked Sheilds. “Every time I’ve been before they just sent me on a runaround," Sheilds replied. Sheilds, 21, lives in a shanty with his wife, Beverly. The makeshift home is about 50 feet from the railroad tracks leading to the nearby Amtrak station. The Sheilds and friend Charlie Norton collect cans and copper to buy food. Sheilds chatted with White and wished the governor a nice day. “I’ve just heard stories in the 1930s of that sort of thing. Never have we seen anything like that in Texas in my lifetime,” White said of the living conditions. Sheilds said he has looked for a construction job, but could not qualify. “Everywhere we’ve applied they say you have to have a permanent address and phone number. Ifs kind of hard when you ain’t got a job to get a permanent address and a phone," he said. HOUSTON (AP) A state legislator has filed a bill to prevent makeshift communities similar to the controversial Tent City from springing up. State Rep. Tony Polumbo, D-Houston, introduced the bill Tuesday as highway workmen tore down the tents and lean-tos of the modern-day Hooverville about 30 miles east of Houston. Polumbo, who represents the district that includes the site, said the bill would make it illegal to stay at similar rest areas more than 24 hours. It also would ban building a “tent, shelter or structure of any kind" at a state-owned rest area. Tent City, a state picnic and overnight campground that once was crammed with about 200 unemployed residents, was barricaded Monday by order of the Harris County fire marshal Polumbo said residents had been offered space at a Baytown center, but turned it down because it banned drinking and required them to look for jobs “If they’re so down-and-out, where did they get all the money to buy all the beer they turnout there?” Polumbo said. “They had no intention of working. That was not their lifestyle. “Everyone used Tent City for whatever purpose they had in mind,” he said. “The national press used it to kick Texas, because of the very lucky economic condition we had for years. The international press used it to show that democracy is failing It was a media hype ” Polumbo said a wrecking yard owner across the highway from Tent City offered work for some of the campers but got no takers.
