New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 18, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Assault Continued from Page 1A prosecuted Gaconnet on a lesser misdemeanor charge in County Court-at-law in order to get a conviction to enhance revocation of probation charges. Gaconnet was serving probation on an earlier felony conviction of burglary. Reimer said he had to make a quick decision since the man had to either be charged or released. “I had to either fish or cut bait. I had no reports to go on and really was not familiar with the case other than what Mrs. Grosser had toid me,” the county attorney said. Reimer said the 45-day sentence Gaconnet drew in county court was “tougher than usual” for a misdemeanor offense. “Under the circumstances, with very little to work with, 45 days was pretty good handling of the taxpayers’ money.” Comal County jail officials inadvertently released Gaconnet Feb. 13 after failing to check for any holds the man may have. Gaconnet, who had accrued 45 days prior to county court’s ruling, had a governor’s writ remanding him to Texas Department of Corrections on the revocation charge. Jail Administrator Walt Sumner confirmed the man’s erroneous release and said authorities are searching for the missing felon. “We hope to have him back in custody today. This is embarrasing to me and hope it never happens again,” Sumner said. The jail administrator stated that officials “Under the circumstances, with very little to work with, 45 days was pretty good handling of the taxpayers’ money.” Bill Reimer County Attorney routinely check for holds when releasing a prisoner but that an oversight had been made in this instance. The woman vowed to continue her fight against the system to let the public know that a man who tried to kill her has been set free. “I think that’s why I’m alive,” she said. “That’s why the blow didn’t kill me is because I need to change the system.” “I think a man ought to be given a chance. But after he’s been given that chance and messed up over and over, he needs to be locked up,” Grosser said of Gaconnet, the man who she says tried to kill her. The woman said Gaconnet has one other bodily injury charge against him for biting his stepmother. Grosser said she plans to up her fight against the system, in particular, against Schroeder. She said she will be at the courthouse every week, sitting on her car and holding a sign to let the public know all is not well with their government. NBISD Continued from Page 1A doors almost one year ago. Memorial already has applied for waivers from the state because first-grade classrooms have exceeded the 22 students limit. Reimer said he is keeping an eye on Austin to see how education fares Lobby. under the Legislative budget-cutting measures. “Right now is the most dangerous time for school districts because the Legislature is in session,” he said. “I understand they have to cut the budget but we’re not going to improve the economy by cutting education funding.” He added that an educated public is essential to a healthy economy. Educators' salaries have improved greatly since the early 1970s, Reimer said. At that time, teachers received a $50 a year bonus for having a bachelor’s degree or a $100 annual bonus for a master’s degree.

Sftrapla Galvan Stocks Market off to new high NEW YORK (AP) - The stock market swept ahead today, picking up where it left off in Tuesday’s record-setting rise to new highs. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials climbed 17.58 to 2,255.06 in the first half hour of trading. NEW YORK (AF) -Morning stocks: AMR Corp Amer Can Ameritech s High 61% 105 89% Low 60% 103% 89 Last 60% 104% 89% Selma Continued from Page 1A down, steel posts stolen, and alcoholic beverage cans scattered or dumped into our land,” Mr. Osborn said. When the problem reached a real crisis stage, Mr. Osborn appeared before both Schertz and Selma city councils demanding legal action. All he received, he said, was a lecture and advice to talk the matter over with the owners of the Blue Bonnet Palace, which he did. A week later, Osborn met with Blue Bonnet Palace owners Melvin and Clarence John. As the problem worsened, they both agreed they would help the Osborns in every way possible to correct the problems. Still another week had gone by when Osborn met with Schertz Mayor Steve Goose, who agreed with them that something must be done. Selma Mayor Elgin Friesenhahn was also contacted, but voiced no concern, stating “his hands were tied.” Friesenhahn said, “We (Selma) have police at the hall every time there is an event.” Goose instructed Osborn to erred warning signs along his property. The signs were stolen. Goose advised Osborn to work out the problem with the Selma and Schertz police. The problem in most cases, according to Mrs. Osborn, was that justice wasn’t served to the fullest. She continued, “Most of the time, we catch someone in the act. Some were released over to their parents, others paid a fine and returned to take it out on us again.” The Osborns recall, however, that justice was served when they con-tacted Guadalupe County Constable Hugo Ackerman!!. “Mr. Ackermann was very concerned,” Mr. Osborne said. He later met with state highway officals who inturn erected a large sign adjacent to Interstate 35 and Lookout Road. Now, months later, ”we still have a reall problem. There will be some good weekends and no trouble, then here it comes again,” said Mrs. Osborn. The Osborns said they believe Billy Mueller has done a fine job with the road maintance crew in keeping the roadway clean on mornings following a dance. Mueller feels both Schertz and Selma must crack down on these offenders. Win, loose or draw, the Osborns will continue to have a problem, and until someone puts new ideas on the drawing board, it will remain a gigantic headache. Montes, malpractice Mark TschaUchala v.
